President Donald Trump on Thursday asked House Republicans for a little feedback as the lawmakers celebrated their passage of a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.

“You know, coming from a different world and only being a politician for a short period of time, how am I doing?” Trump said, turning to lawmakers in the White House’s Rose Garden. “Am I doing OK? I’m President! Hey, I’m President! Can you believe it, right?”

House Republicans laughed along as Trump continued: “I don’t know. I thought you needed a little bit more time, they always told me, more time. But we didn’t.”
