In an interview with New York Times reporters Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush on Wednesday, President Donald Trump spent some time talking about his all-time favorite topic: people who have wronged him. This time, it was Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings of Maryland.
Here's President Trump's statement:
TRUMP: Elijah Cummings [a Democratic representative from Maryland] was in my office and he said, “You will go down as one of the great presidents in the history of our country.”
TRUMP: And then he went out and I watched him on television yesterday and I said, “Was that the same man?”
TRUMP: But I said, and I liked him, but I said that was really nice. He said, in a group of people, “You will go down as one of the great presidents in the history of our country.” And then I watched him on television and I said, “Is that the same man that said that to me?”
