Trump: ‘I think I’ve done great things’
President Trump gave himself a grade of A for his presidency so far in an interview broadcast on Tuesday morning but added that he would only give himself a C for communicating how great he has been.
Appearing on “Fox and Friends,” which he has called one of his favorite shows, Mr. Trump blamed former President Barack Obama for organizing opposition against him, called the House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi “incompetent” and gently criticized his own press secretary for how he has handled leaks.
The interview, shown just hours before Mr. Trump delivers his first address to a joint session of Congress, set the stage for a day when he will have perhaps the biggest audience available to him for the rest of his first year in office. He highlighted his plans to increase military spending, tighten borders and replace Mr. Obama’s health care program, and he boasted that he has already brought back jobs to America.
Asked by the Fox hosts if he thinks Mr. Obama is responsible for some of the protests against his policies, Mr. Trump agreed but brushed it off. “I think he is behind it,” he said. “I also think it’s politics,” adding, “And look, I have a very thick skin.”
Mr. Trump, who has railed against leaks, said some of them have probably come from holdovers from Mr. Obama’s administration. But he said his press secretary, Sean Spicer, was wrong to bring a group of staff members into his office and inspect their telephones in the presence of White House lawyers.
“Sean Spicer is a fine human being; he’s a fine person,” Mr. Trump said. “I would have done it differently. I would have gone one-on-one with different people.” He added: “I would have handled it differently than Sean. But Sean handles it his way and I’m O.K. with it.”

Yes he gets an A in getting a soldier killed in a botched attack. He gets an A in being deluded that most Americans are smarter than to believe his constant lying. He gets an A in setting up a government that is filled with the creatures of the swamp he promised to drain. He gets an A on reinterpreting the US Constitution to mean what he wants (too bad the SCOTUS didn't agree).
