President Donald Trump offered reassurances Thursday over reports of combative phone calls with foreign leaders.

"When you hear about the tough phone calls I'm having, don't worry about it," Trump said at the National Prayer Breakfast, according to Politico. 

"Just don't worry about it," Trump said. 

Trump reportedly argued with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, which Trump called "the worst call by far," according to The Washington Post.

"The world is in trouble, but we're gonna straighten it out, OK? That's what I do, I fix things," Trump said at the breakfast.

Trump's adviser, and former campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway defended the president during an appearance on Fox News Thursday, where she said the calls had been misrepresented.

"Look, anybody who just discovered that President Donald J. Trump is a resolute, decisive man who doesn't mince his words … is waking up, I think, out of a cave from the last two years," she said.

"But at the same time, he has had very respectful conversations with many leaders, just in the last week or so — 10 or more world leaders. He is trying to reach out to them, talk to the diplomatic corps, certainly. But he also makes very clear what his position is on any number of issues around the globe," she added.

"We're gonna straighten it out," Trump added at the breakfast. "Believe me."
