Asked on Thanksgiving Day what he is most thankful for, President Donald Trump gave his family a brief shout out before launching into a lengthy explanation of why he is thankful for himself.
> "What are you most thankful for, Mr President?," a member of the media asked as Trump took questions from reporters at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, where he's spending the holiday with family members.
> "For having a great family, and for having made a tremendous difference in this country. I've made a tremendous difference in the country," the President responded, as documented in a video published by The Hill on Twitter.
> Trump continued, "This country is so much stronger now than it was when I took office that you wouldn't believe it."
And according to Trump, world leaders frequently remark to him just how much stronger the United States is now that he has taken over the helm.
“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.’”
> Some pundits on social media have suggested Trump's comments were more about himself than the country.
> "President Trump says he is most thankful for himself," Washington Post columnist Brian Klaas tweeted.
