NOBODY WAS LAUGHING

September 28, 2018

Trump insisted he was never ridiculed by leaders on the world stage, dismissing reports that he was laughed at during his address to the U.N. General Assembly as “fake news.”

Trump allowed that he’d heard “a little rustle” as he began reciting U.S. economic gains under his watch, but he insisted: “They weren’t laughing at me. They were laughing with me.”

Trump had appeared briefly flustered by the reaction Tuesday morning. He smiled and said, “I didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s OK.”

As Trump tells it: “People had a good time with me. We were doing it together. We had a good time. They respect what I’ve done.”
