Over members of the press called the cabinet meeting "bizarre," with CNN's Jake Tapper saying "never seen a Cabinet meeting like this one before."

The president went on to tell the group and the reporters in attendance, "Never has there been a president...who has passed more legislation, who's done more things than what we've done," noting Franklin D. Roosevelt as an exception to the statement.
