President Trump reasserts his 'very stable genius' claims following NATO summit

At a press conference on Thursday, President Trump described the NATO summit as a success and again referred to himself as a “very stable genius.” 

The comment came after a reporter asked: “We understand your message, but some people ask themselves, ‘will you be tweeting differently once you board Air Force One?’” 

“No. That’s other people that do that,” Trump replied. “I don’t. I’m very consistent. I’m a very stable genius.”

The reporter’s question appeared to be a reference to Trump’s actions following the recent G7 summit, notes Fox News
