"It's doing really well, I have great people".
Trump responded in the most classically Trumpian way: "Look, I hate to do it, but I will do it".
During his interview, Trump told the Fox news that his supported candidates won in the mid-term elections against the candidates for whom Obama had campaigned for.
"I'm not on the ballot, but in a certain way I'm on the ballot, so please go out and vote", Trump urged a crowd of supporters in Southaven, Mississippi, on October 2.
He expressed pride in the Republican Party's ability to keep the Senate in the midterm elections, and suggested that losing the GOP majority in the House of Representatives doesn't reflect on his presidency.

Sunday may be a day of rest for a lot of people - but it clearly wasn't this week for President Trump. "I want to keep it that way". "If it doesn't, you know, I'll be told and we'll make a decision at that time".

I'm doing a lot of things.

"I haven't even thought about John", and the possibility that he would leave, Trump said.

Trump's White House schedule last Monday was clear and did not list any events for him. "I'd like her to be much tougher on the border".
TRUMP: Chris - Chris, I'm not talking about you - but you sometimes maybe. "It's an innocent form of exaggeration - and a very effective form of promotion".
