President Trump said Abraham Lincoln "did good, although it's always been questionable...the end result."

President Donald Trump reiterated his claim that he has done more for the African American community than any other president during his recent interview with Fox News host Harris Faulkner.

  • Trump said: "I think I've done more for the Black community than any other president, and let's take a pass on Abraham Lincoln, cause, he did good, although it's always questionable. You know, in other words, the end result—"

  • Faulkner interjected, saying, "Well, we are free, Mr. President," adding: “So he did pretty well.”

  • The president then said he would “take a pass on Abe, Abe — Honest Abe as we call him.”

  • Faulkner returned to Trump’s initial claim that he has “done more than anybody” for African Americans, prompting the president to explain:

“Well, look, criminal justice reform. Nobody else could’ve done it. I did it. I didn’t get a lot of notoriety, and the fact the people I did it for then go on television and thank everybody but me. And they needed me to get it done, and I got it done.”
