Trump and Obama each shared what they’re thankful for this year—and the difference is laughable

It’s officially Thanksgiving 2018, which means it’s time to take a moment and really appreciate what we have to be grateful for in life. And what is President Donald Trump grateful for this year, you might ask? Himself. Yes, really. During a phone interview with the media this morning, November 22nd, Trump was asked what he’s most thankful for, and he responded with, “For having a great family and for having made a tremendous difference in this country. I made a tremendous difference in the country. This country is so much stronger now than it was when I took office that you won’t believe it.”

He didn’t stop there.

“And I mean, you see it, but so much stronger that people can’t even believe it. When I see foreign leaders, they say we cannot believe the difference in strength between the United States now and the United States two years ago. Made a lot of progress.

First of all, we have yet to hear of a foreign leader express any of the above. Secondly, we’re sadly not surprised that Donald Trump took a question about gratitude and reflected it back on himself.

And what is former president Barack Obama grateful for this year? We got you.

In a November 21st Twitter post, he wrote, "I am grateful for the next generation of leaders—the young people who are tolerant, creative, idealistic and doing the work to create the world as it should be. Who understand that hope requires action. From the Obama family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving."

Spoken like a true leader. As if we don’t say this enough: We miss you, Obama. But we’re so thankful you’re here still attempting to make the world a better place for all.
