President Donald Trump touted a long list of personal accomplishments in an interview with The Wall Street Journal on Thursday, adding that he gets a lot of false press and has consistently been “successful at everything [he] ever did.”
Trump said that he’s seen more false press than anyone else ‘in the history of this country,” attributing that the liberal media’s feelings toward him.
“They dislike me. The liberal media dislikes me,” Trump said. “I was always the best at what I did. … I went to the Wharton School of Finance, did well. … I started out in a Brooklyn office with my father, I became one of the most successful real-estate developers, one of the most successful business people. I created maybe the greatest brand.”
He specifically called out NBC, saying that one of the reasons the network “hates: him is because he refused to sign for another three years of his television show, The Apprentice, after twelve years on the air.
And to his detractors?
“So I was successful, successful, successful,” Trump said. “I was always the best athlete. People don’t know that. But I was successful at everything I ever did and then I run for president, first time — first time, not three times, not six times. I ran for president first time and lo and behold I win.”
“And then people say oh, is he a smart person?” he added. “I’m smarter than all of them put together, but they can’t admit it. They had a bad year.”
