Over Thanksgiving, Donald Trump was asked about what he is thankful for, and he couldn't help but give himself credit.

Trump responded to press that he was thankful "for having a great family and for having made a tremendous difference in this country. I've made a tremendous difference in the country. This country is so much stronger now than it was when I took office that you wouldn't believe it.

"And I mean, you see, but so much stronger people can't even believe it. When I see foreign leaders they say we cannot believe the difference in strength between the United States now and the United States two years ago. Made a lot of progress."

Trump forwent tradition and used a Thanksgiving morning call with military members. Instead, he chose to continue to push his agenda to around the Circuit Court of Appeals as well as the US-Mexico border. He also blamed “the world” for the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and explained that he keeps a close relationship with Saudi Arabia to keep oil prices low.

He also referred to the judge who had issued a temporary restraining order blocking the White House from barring migrants who crossed the border illegally from seeking asylum.

“It’s a terrible thing when judges take over your protective services, when they tell you how to protect your border. It’s a disgrace.” 

Trump also gave the military permission to use lethal force along the border., which will no doubt lead to more legal woes for the administration.
