Trump: ‘Nobody Ever Told Me that Politics Was Going To Be So Much Fun’

‘But we’re doing well — It’s doing very well’

TRUMP: "Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Nobody ever told me that politics was going to be so much fun. But we’re doing well. It’s doing very well. We just had a long call from General Mattis. He knows better than anybody we’re doing very well in Iraq. Our soldiers are fighting and fighting like never before, and the results are very, very good. I just wanted to let everyone know. I have some very special friends in this room, especially — I must tell you we have the Republicans, but I even have a couple of Democrats. I said we had a dinner here about three weeks ago, and it was so beautiful. We have these incredible musicians from the Marine Corps and from the Army. Incredible actually. And I said, you know, I’d like to do something special. I’d like to ask the United States Senate with spouses to come and hear how good it was. It was just a beautiful evening. And so here we are, and shockingly, it’s semi-bipartisan. A lot of people showed up that people weren’t expecting, which is a very good thing."
