Trump in a tweet earlier Tuesday took credit for the safest year in commercial air travel after a report said that no commercial passenger jets crashed in 2017.

“Since taking office I have been very strict on Commercial Aviation,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

“Good news - it was just reported that there were Zero deaths in 2017, the best and safest year on record!” 

A spokesperson for Trump said Tuesday that the president “raised the bar” for the United States’s “aviation safety and security.”

Trump was widely mocked on social media over the claim, however.
