President Trump said Thursday he would tell his younger self not to run for president.
“Don’t run for president,” Trump quipped when asked at a youth forum what advice he would have given his 25-year-old self.
Trump said he was much more widely loved during his career as a businessman and reality TV star.
“I got the greatest publicity. I was getting such great — until I ran for office,” he said.
At the same time, he said the level of support as president is higher than the 40 percent he gets in job-approval polls.
“People really do get it, there is a lot of fake news out there,” he said. “Nobody had any idea. I’m actually proud of the fact I exposed it to a large extent. It’s an achievement.”
