In an interview with TIME Magazine, President Trump brushed off a question about his credibility, saying that even if his statements are proven false, they can’t be affecting him that badly because “I’m president and you’re not.”
After dodging a question about his wiretapping claims, Trump rambled on about the “mess” he inherited from former President Obama.
“I inherited a mess, I inherited a mess in so many ways,” Trump said. “I inherited a mess in the Middle East, and a mess with North Korea, I inherited a mess with jobs, despite the statistics, you know, my statistics are even better, but they are not the real statistics because you have millions of people that can’t get a job, ok. And I inherited a mess on trade.”

“I mean we have many, you can go up and down the ladder,” he continued. “But that’s the story. Hey look, in the meantime, I guess, I can’t be doing so badly, because I’m president, and you’re not. You know.”
