President Trump laid out the cold, hard truth during his press conference on Thursday.
Especially after 8 years of being lied to.
“I’m here again to take my message straight to the people,” POTUS stated. “As you know, our administration inherited many problems across government, and across the economy.”
“To be honest, I inherited a mess. It’s a mess,” he added. “At home, and abroad, a mess.”
“Jobs are pouring out of the country — you see what’s going on with all of the companies leaving our country, going to Mexico and other places — low pay, low wages, mass instability over seas, no matter where you look, the Middle East, a disaster. North Korea.”
“We’ll take care of it, folks,” he reassured his audience. “We are going to take care of it all. I just wanted to let you know, I inherited a mess.”
Trump also used this time to swipe at the press a little…
“The press has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people,” said Trump.
“The press is out of control. The level of dishonesty is out of control,” he added.
The president dismissed reports of chaos within his administration. “It is the exact opposite. This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine,” he claimed.
The president even touted the crowds expected at an upcoming weekend rally in Florida. “I just heard that the crowds are massive,” he said of the event scheduled for Saturday.
Speaking of his campaign promises, Trump pledged to deal with the drug problem ailing America, claiming that “drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars.”
Trump also said he’d issue a new executive order related to a travel ban next week — and knocked the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals for blocking his last one. “That circuit is in chaos, that circuit is frankly in turmoil,” he said.
“I keep my campaign promises,” Trump said.
“There’s never been a presidency that has done so much in so short a period of time,” he added.
