Speaking at an event for young Republican leaders in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, President Donald Trump joked that if he could speak to his 25-year-old self today, he would share the following piece of advice:

“Don’t run for president.”

71-year-old Trump explained to the audience at the Generation Next Forum that he used to get “the greatest publicity” before he ran for president.

“You know … all my life I’ve gotten the greatest publicity … until I ran for office,” he said.

He added, however, that he’s “proud” that he’s been able to expose the fake news media “to a large extent” during his time in the political spotlight.

“People really do get it. There is a lot of fake news out there. Nobody had any idea and, you know, I’m actually proud of the fact that I exposed it to a large extent,” said Trump.

“When I say fake, I don’t mean everybody,” he noted. “[But] we have shown something that a lot of people didn’t really understand. Their approval ratings—sorry folks—it’s down the tubes. People have found out how dishonest it is.”
