President Trump congratulated American Olympians at the White House Friday.
In classic Trumpian style, he congratulated one of the athletes, telling her she was “more famous” than him.
“Two months ago, America sent each of you to the Winter Olympics to represent the red, white and blue and you did an awfully good job of doing it, I will tell you,” he stated.
He then pointed to an athlete and said, “I think she’s more famous than I am.”
Many in the crowd then laughed.
“Great job. You performed and you made us very proud. Many of you came home as champions wearing bronze, silver or a gold medal, and you had very big crowds.” (RELATED: Poll: Melania Trump Is A More Popular First Lady Than Hillary Clinton)
“And I have to say, without certain backing, those crowds were not looking good, but all of a sudden those crowds got very, very big, very powerful and it became a very, very successful Olympics aside from everything else.” (RELATED: Sarah Sanders Prays Before Every Press Briefing)
