Trump: Besides Lincoln, ‘I Can Be More Presidential Than Any President That Has Ever Held This Office’

At Tuesday’s rally in Youngstown, OH, President Trump addressed his critics who say he isn’t “presidential” enough.

“Political correctness, for me is easy, “he told the arena. “Sometimes they say ‘he doesn’t’ act presidential.’ And I say, look, great schools, smart guy, it is so easy to act presidential. But that’s not going to get it done. In fact, I said – it is much easier, by the way, to act presidential than what we are doing here tonight, believe me.”

He then went on to make this bold claim.

“And I said,” he added, “with the exception of the late great Abraham Lincoln, I can be more presidential than any president that has ever held this office, that I can tell you.”

He said being presidential is “really easy,” but “we have to move a little faster than that.”

“We will never be beholden to the lobbyists or the special interests,” he continued. “We will never be silenced by the media. I want to protect America, and I want to protect the citizens of America. Your hopes are my hopes. Your dreams are my dreams. I have a great, successful career. I have built a great, great business. This is the only thing that matters. This is the only thing that matters. There is nothing. Your future is what I’m fighting for each and every day.”
