1(b) The following are some of the countless examples of his self-praise.|
(i) “Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest — and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure. It’s not your fault.” Donald Trump on Twitter.
(ii) Trump told Bob Woodward in September 2018: “Accurate is that nobody’s ever done a better job than I’m doing as president.”
(iii) Asked on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” whom he talked with “consistently” about foreign affairs, Donald Trump responded in 2016, “I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things.”
(iv) Trump told a reporter in 1984. “It would take an hour and a half to learn everything there is to learn about missiles. … I think I know most of it anyway.”
1(c) Here are more examples from his interview by Sarah Westwood of Washington Examiner Magazine on his first 100 days (published on April 28, 2017)
(i) “A lot of good things are happening. Really good things. We’re very proud of the job we’ve done."
(ii) "I think we've done more than perhaps any president in the first 100 days. But I don't want to set the 100 days as a standard — I think even more importantly, I think that we've established foundations for the next, almost eight years."
(iii) "I'd give us an A. I would say communication would be a little bit less than an A because I don't think we've gotten the word out what we've done because I think we're so busy getting it done that we're not talking about it. But I would give the administration, on the big picture, an A."
(iv) "I've passed a lot of legislative bills that people don't even know about. Whether it's the VA and choice and whether it's a lot of different things, a lot of bills we've passed, including relating to the Internet, so we believe we'll have 32 legislative — this is not executive orders — this is legislative bills passed. And nobody knew that."
(v) "We've freed up the economy, the work on regulation is unprecedented, what we've done on regulation. And I will tell you on legislative — which people said, 'oh well he's done nothing legislatively,' they didn't know, because we didn't make a big deal out of it, but we've done a great job. Not since Harry Truman has anybody done so much. That's a long time ago."
(vi) "I think we've created some amazing, we've done some amazing things, and I think we've set some incredible foundations going onward, with relationships, with other countries, et cetera, et cetera."
(vii) "I am somebody with a lot of heart and you know, you've heard what I said. Just, relax and let's let it all play out. Because I think everyone's going to be happy in the end. I will say that we're doing an amazing job at the border."
