UN was laughing with me, not at me: Trump

Donald Trump appeared briefly flustered, then smiled and said: "I didn't expect that reaction, but that's OK," when members of the UN laughed at his speech.

US president Donald Trump has dismissed as "fake news" reports that world leaders laughed at him in the opening moments of his speech to a session of the UN General Assembly.

"They weren't laughing at me. They were laughing with me," he declared at a news conference, the day after counterparts from around the globe audibly laughed as he began his address by reciting US economic gains under his watch.

"We had fun. That was not laughing at me," he said.

"So the fake news said people laughed at President Trump. They didn't laugh at me. People had a good time with me. We were doing it together. We had a good time. They respect what I've done."
