President Donald Trump marked the House's passage of the American Health Care Act in true Trump fashion: By reminding everyone that he's in charge.

Trump made the comment Thursday while he was surrounded by House GOP lawmakers at the White House Rose Garden. His remarks came shortly after the House of Representatives narrowly voted to advance the American Health Care Act, the Republicans' plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, to the Senate.

The president's remarks came in typical Trump style, as he reminded those visiting the White House that just a few short months ago, he was in a "different world."

“There is a lot of talent standing behind me," Trump said, pointing to GOP lawmakers. "An unbelievable amount of talent. That I can tell you."

"Coming from a different world and only being a politician for a short period of time," Trump said. He paused to ask everyone how he's doing.

"Am I doing OK?" Trump asked.

The former real estate mogul then took a second to remind the world of his new job.

"I’m president! Hey! I’m president!" Trump said. "Can you believe it, right?"

"I thought you needed a little bit more time, they always told me. More time. But we didn't," Trump continued, referring to critics who questioned Republicans for trying to pass such a massive legislation like health care reform in just a few months.
