The president was asked by a reporter last year what he was "most thankful for"; his response was himself.

President Donald Trump suggested he was most thankful for himself last Thanksgiving during a call with reporters as he celebrated the holiday at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

Newsweek reported that Trump went on about how great he has been for the country when a journalist asked him what he was “most thankful for” last year.

"For having a great family and for having made a tremendous difference in this country," the president responded. "I made a tremendous difference in the country. This country is so much stronger now than it was when I took office that you won't believe it."

He went on: "And I mean, you see it, but so much stronger that people can't even believe it. When I see foreign leaders, they say we cannot believe the difference in strength between the United States now and the United States two years ago. Made a lot of progress."

Newsweek compared Trump’s answer with former President Barack Obama’s 2018 Thanksgiving message on Twitter: "I am grateful for the next generation of leaders—the young people who are tolerant, creative, idealistic and doing the work to create the world as it should be. Who understand that hope requires action. From the Obama family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving.”
