“Take it from an outsider: we feel sorry for Americans.”
Donald Trump on Thursday sought to stifle media reports that his administration is engulfed “in chaos” and “in meltdown” by claiming that the U.S. under his presidency was “the envy of the world.”
The White House is running very smoothly and the results for our Nation are obviously very good. We are the envy of the world. But anytime I even think about making changes, the FAKE NEWS MEDIA goes crazy, always seeking to make us look as bad as possible! Very dishonest!

But his early morning Twitter boast attacking “the FAKE NEWS MEDIA” did not go over well, with many folks suggesting America under Trump is actually a global “laughingstock.”
