Trump: Lincoln Was ‘Excoriated by the Fake News’
TRUMP: "Do I get credit for saving a million, billion bucks? Not really. Someday. You know when Abraham Lincoln made that gettysburg address speech, the great speech, you know he was ridiculed? He was ridiculed. He took the horse and carriage up from the White House and voted for, partially in that carriage and partially at a desk in the Lincoln bedroom which is incredible by the way in the White House, and he went up to gettysburg and deliver that speech. And he was excoriated by the fake news. They had fake news then. They said it was a terrible, terrible speech. They said it was far too short. It’s not long, many of us know it by memory. It was far too short and it was far too flowery. Four score and seven years ago, right? Too flowery. And he died. 50 years after his death they said it may have been the greatest speech ever made in America."
