(Newser) – President Trump was addressing the UN Tuesday morning, and he got an unexpected reaction from an early boast: laughter. "In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country," Trump told the General Assembly, which prompted some audible snickering in the audience, reports Politico. Trump made light of it as he paused his speech. "Didn't expect that reaction, but that's OK," he said with a laugh, and that led to more laughter and applause. See this video captured by PBS.
