President Donald Trump said on Thursday that there was no question that he is “the most powerful man” in the U.S. and “the greatest of the modern era.”
Trump made the comments in a video posted on his Twitter account on Wednesday.
The president also told the crowd at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, that he “never had any problems” with the media during his time in office, which is why he won.
“I’m the most powerful person in the universe, the greatest of all time, because I’m a person who’s a winner, I’m not a winner,” Trump said.
“I am a winner.
So, there’s no doubt about it.”
The president made the comment while speaking to the crowd of around 1,500 in front of his mansion.
He said that his job is to help the people of this country, which he called a “great country.”
“We’re not going to have a country unless we have people that are winners,” Trump told the cheering crowd.
“And I’m one of them.”
He also said that “the media is out of control” and said that the country needs to turn the media against them.
“There’s so much fake news, it’s so dangerous.
I mean, it has to stop,” he said.
The President has been repeatedly criticized for his handling of the situation in Charlottesville, Virginia, when white supremacists gathered in the town on August 12.
His comments during the rally and the violence at the rally led to the resignation of his chief of staff, Reince Priebus, and the loss of several other top aides.
