President Donald Trump said he is most thankful for his status as the President of America on Thanksgiving Day.
The President was answering questions from reporters while he is on holiday at the Mar-a-Lago in Florida. He was talking about the difference between his Government and the past Government of the US. He also said America is stronger with him than the previous Government.
He said “What are you most thankful for Mr President?” calls a reporter at the end of an hour-long press conference.
“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. 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’. We made a lot of progress.”
However, the director of the Foreign Policy Centre in London Adam Hug reacted to President Trump’s statement by talking about the difference between Trumps administration and past American Government.
Hug said: “The primary feature of the Trump presidency has been the way in which his administration – and him personally – have sought to challenge the operation of America’s institutions and challenge some long-standing norms around how the presidency should operate.
“That has obviously created some significant tensions and a more volatile political environment in the United States than we’ve seen in recent years.”
“The Trump administration has continued to ride the economic expansion which began under Obama, and Mr Trump’s tax and regulatory changes “do not seem to have negatively affected economic growth.
“How Trump deals with any slowdown in the economy will be a significant test for the second half of his presidency.”
