President Donald Trump's recent town hall on ABC was widely panned after Trump's rambling, off-topic answers left many viewers feel he was unwilling or unable to address their concerns.

Trump seemed blissfully unaware of the public's response, however. He went on Twitter and thanked the world for great reviews.
