Trump Verteidigt Leistungen, Angriffe Medien auf der Pressekonferenz

Inhalt von: Voice of America


Donald Trump used his first solo press conference as president Thursday to deliver a broad defense of his turbulent first month in office, denying reports of chaos within the White House and insisting his administration is running "like a fine-tuned machine.


The press conference, which lasted over 75 minutes, was at turns combative and comical, with Trump alternately joking with and then lecturing the media gathered in the White House East Room.

Trump touted a long list of what he said were accomplishments, including withdrawing the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, implementing a federal government hiring freeze and eliminating government regulations.

"We have made incredible progress," Trump said. "I don't think there's ever been a president elected who in this short period of time has done what we've done."

But Trump insisted he could have accomplished more were it not for what he termed the "mess" left by his predecessor, former President Barack Obama. "I inherited a mess. It's a mess. At home and abroad, a mess," he said.
