Senate confirms Austin to lead Pentagon under Biden
Trump gives himself a grade of 'A+'
President Trump said in an interview broadcast early Thursday that he gives himself an "A+" for his time in office thus far.
"I don't think any president has ever done what I've done in this short -- we haven't even been two years," Trump said in an interview with "Fox & Friends" host Ainsley Earhardt.
He cited the passage of a GOP-backed tax cut bill last December, his nomination of two Supreme Court justices, and administration's rollback of regulations. Trump also claimed the economy "is the best it's ever been in history," though there are some categories in which that is not accurate.
The president has given his presidency high marks in the past.
In an April interview with "Fox & Friends," Trump awarded himself the same grade of "A+," adding that, "Nobody has done what I've been able to do."
Trump said last year he would "give myself a 10" out of 10 for his administration's response to Hurricane Maria ravaging Puerto Rico. Numerous lawmakers and citizens have criticized the Trump administration for being too slow to deliver adequate aid to the island, which only recently regained full power.
The president said in May that his administration had the most successful first 17 months in history "despite the disgusting, illegal and unwarranted Witch Hunt," a reference to special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation into Russian interference.
In June, Trump marked his 500th day in office by declaring "many believe" that he had accomplished more than any other president in the same timeframe.
