President Trump said he’d give himself an “A-plus” for effort on his presidency so far.
In an interview with Fox & Friends Tuesday morning, Trump was asked what grade he would give himself based on his Administration so far.
“I think in terms of effort, which means something, but I give myself an A-plus, OK, effort, but results are more important,” he said. “In terms of messaging, I would give myself a C or a C-plus. … In terms of achievement, I think I’d give myself an A because I think I’ve done great things, but I and my people I don’t think we’ve explained it well enough to the American public.”
Trump’s comments were fairly typical for presidents who hit a rough patch. In an interview in November, former President Obama blamed Hillary Clinton’s loss on poor messaging.
“Democrat do have to do some thinking about how do we make sure that the message we have is received effectively,” he said.
