President Trump addressed the U.N General Assembly. While delivering his speech, which was about the importance of U.S "sovereignty" over the needs of other nations, he drew laughter within the first minute from the chamber. The laughter came when he boasted about how his administration accomplished more in two years than "almost any administration in American history." He appeared startled and said "I didn't expect that reaction, but that's okay." At a later press conference, he claimed it was "fake news" that they were laughing at him. Instead, he said they "were laughing with me."
