Trump declares himself the 'greatest of all presidents' in Saturday rant
President Donald Trump is now convinced he's the "greatest of all presidents."
He claimed this on Saturday afternoon just before flying off to Florida where he will be headlining a key Statesman Dinner, held by the Republican Party of Florida in Aventura.
Before making the declaration, though, he thought it'd be a good time to attack the democratic Speaker of the House again:
"Hard to believe, but if Nancy Pelosi had put our great Trade Deal with Mexico and Canada, USMCA, up for a vote long ago, our economy would be even better. If she doesn’t move quickly, it will collapse!”
He then yelled out: "Our Economy is the envy of the World!"
Trump quoted Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe and Fox & Friends weekend co-host Pete Hegseth:
“Why re-elect Democrats when you know that this is what they are doing with their majority. Their case is not strong because first it was Russian Collusion, then it was obstruction, then it was Ukraine, now their pivoting back to Russia. Why would they be doing that?”
“Not only have the Democrats not advanced key pieces of legislation that would help the economy, but the polls, especially in early states, are showing that voters are tuning out.”
Finally, he let it known in his own words: "They don’t want our greatest of all presidents impeached!"
Trump loves saying this about himself, in one form or another. Back before he won the Republican Nomination for president in 2016, Trump declared: "I am going to be the greatest jobs president that God ever created."
Perhaps Trump is letting a few people let this title go to his head by a few conservative commentators and celebrities. Lou Dobbs corrected himself last month after declaring Trump "the greatest president since Ronald Reagan." He then said: “No, no, Trump is an even better president than Ronald Reagan."
Actor Jon Voight said earlier in the year that Trump was "the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln."
Trump must of liked this comment so much he gave Voight the National Medal of Arts and National Humanities Medal in a ceremony a few weeks ago.
Presidential historians have their own rankings, however. They don't start issuing out ratings until a president's term is over, but just for a little context, they ranked former President Obama as 12th greatest all-time.
The best ranking went to Abraham Lincoln while James Buchanan came in dead last.
Where on this list do you think Trump will end up?
