DONALD TRUMP SAYS ‘WHEN I TOOK OVER THE UNITED STATES’ IN REFERENCE TO THE BEGINNING OF HIS PRESIDENCY

Trump appeared before a bilateral meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, which was held at the UN in an attempt to mediate tensions between Pakistan and India. The president’s offhand remark was criticized by many of his opponents for its seemingly dictatorial tone.

This is not the first controversial statement by Trump within his tenure as president. Back in August of this year, Trump stated “I am the chosen one” while talking to reporters outside of the White House about the ongoing trade war with China. Trump later insisted he was making a joke when he said it.

“I think I’m gonna get a Nobel Prize for a lot of things, if they gave it out fairly, which they don’t,” Trump said. “They gave one to Obama immediately upon his ascent to the presidency, and he had no idea why he got it. And you know what? That was the only thing I agreed with him on.”

Earlier this year, Trump claimed Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize. Abe, meanwhile, did not confirm the nomination but also did not deny it.
