President Trump describes himself as a 'great moral leader'

President Trump described himself as “a great moral leader” on Wednesday.

During a White House press conference, he was questioned about “healing the divides” in the U.S.

Trump stated: “Well, we want to see it healed, and one of the things I think that can help heal is the success of our country. We are really successful now.”

After he noted that the U.S. has gone up in worth, while China has “come down tremendously,” and lingered on that topic for some time, the journalist who’d asked about the healing interjected with, “How do you see your role as a moral leader?”

Though Trump quickly moved to take a question from another reporter, he did state, “I think, I am a great moral leader.”
