While visiting a new Louis Vuitton factory in Alvarado, Texas on Thursday, a reporter asked President Trump why the U.S. unemployment rate is low compared to the high unemployment rate in France, to which Trump quipped, "Well, maybe we have a better president than you do."

The president of France is Emmanuel Macron, 41, a die-hard socialist. The unemployment rate in France is 8.5%; in the United States it is 3.5%.

Towards the end of his visit to the Louis Vuitton leather workshop, a French company, a reporter asked President Trump, “You have a very low unemployment rate in the U.S. and we have a very high unemployment rate in France -- How come?” 

President Trump, with a smile, replied, “Well, maybe we have a better president than you do.”
