Trump Suggests He Should Be Hailed With a ‘National Holiday’ Since He’s So Amazing

Donald Trump claimed on Sunday that “a National Holiday would be immediately declared” if former President Obama made the deals on immigration and the economy that he has.

Because of course Trump wants his own holiday, even if what he says is 100% untrue.

“If President Obama made the deals that I have made, both at the Border and for the Economy, the Corrupt Media would be hailing them as Incredible, & a National Holiday would be immediately declared,” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter.

“With me, despite our record setting Economy and all that I have done, no credit!”

Trump in a series of tweets on Sunday morning touted his border security deal with Mexico, which averted tariffs on the U.S.’s southern neighbor, and knocked the media for its coverage of the agreement.

On Friday, he struck a deal with Mexico that called for the U.S. to drop plans to impose sweeping tariffs on the country in exchange for Mexico’s promise to crack down on illegal migration.

The New York Times reported Saturday that a majority of the deal was previously agreed upon between the two sides, prompting Trump to lash out against the news outlet on Sunday, once again calling it, along with CNN, “The Enemy of the People!”

As you could imagine, Twitter had a field day with Trump’s ridiculous claim:
