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.

WATCH:

“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)
