Donald Trump Thanks Himself – Again – For Accomplishments: “Thanks President T!”
In a Thanksgiving weekend tweet, President Donald Trump thanked himself again for his administration’s accomplishments, marking the second time he patted himself on the back this holiday season.
“So great that oil prices are falling (thank you President T). Add that, which is like a big Tax Cut, to our other good Economic news. Inflation down (are you listening Fed)!” Trump tweeted Sunday morning.

Trump took a similarly self-congratulatory tone during a Thanksgiving interview at his Florida Mar-A-Lago resort, telling reporters that he was thankful “For having a great family and for having made a tremendous difference in this country. I’ve made a tremendous difference in the country. This country is so much stronger now than it was when I took office that you wouldn’t believe it.”
Trump has repeatedly given his administration and leadership top marks over the course of the last two years, this despite middling public approval levels.
During an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, Trump gave himself an “A+” on his presidency, and asked if he could rank himself any higher.
“Look, I hate to do it, but I will do it, I would give myself an A+,” Trump told Wallace. “Is that enough? Can I go higher than that?”
