Donald Trump is thankful for his own self-proclaimed “tremendous” work.

The 72-year-old president spoke to reporters in a Q&A session from his Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida while celebrating Thanksgiving with his family.

When asked what he was thankful for, Trump said, “[For my] great family and for having made a tremendous difference in this country.”

“I made a tremendous difference in this country,” he reiterated before adding, “This country is so much stronger now than it was when I took office and you wouldn’t believe it and when you see it, we’ve gotten so much stronger [that] people don’t even believe it.”

“When I see foreign leaders, they cannot believe the difference in strength between the United States now and the United States two years ago,” Trump said. “We’ve made a lot of progress.”

The president spent Thanksgiving making phone calls to U.S. soldiers and visited a local Coast Guard station before heading to his golf course.

On Tuesday, Trump pardoned turkeys named Peas and Carrots, according to TIME.
