President Trump claimed Tuesday that comments he made at the United Nations General Assembly were “meant to get some laughter.”

The audience started to laugh when Trump boasted about his presidential achievements.

{mosads}”In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” Trump said to the assembly.

After the laughter died down, Trump noted that he “didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s OK.”

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) took the opportunity to poke fun at Trump by resurfacing an old tweet where the president had criticized former President Obama for being “a laughing stock.”
