“Look, I hate to do it, but I will do it, I would give myself an A-plus,” he told Fox News’s Chris Wallace. “Is that enough?Can I go higher than that?”

Wallace had asked Trump to “rank yourself in the pantheon of great presidents? There’s Lincoln and Washington, there’s FDR and Reagan, do you make the top 10?”
“I think I’m doing a great job. We have the best economy we’ve ever had,” Trump said, adding when Wallace asked again, “We’re doing really well. We would have been at war with North Korea if, let’s say, that administration continued forward.”
Trump has repeatedly given himself high marks on his presidency. In April, he also gave himself an A-plus overall, and last year, rated himself a “10” on his handling of the 2017 hurricanes in Puerto Rico.
Trump’s interview with Wallace aired Sunday, the day after Trump visited California amid several major wildfires and after a deadly shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks.
He faced criticism this month over his initial response to the wildfires, which included blaming local officials for the wildfires due to poor “forest management” and threatening to withhold federal funding for the state.
A Hill.TV poll last week found Trump’s approval rating at 47 percent following the midterm elections.
