President Donald Trump admitted Tuesday many countries were "a little bit nervous" when he took office this year but have since come to like and respect him.

Trump appeared with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras during a joint White House press conference and made the remark after Tsipras was asked if his 2016 insistence of Trump having an "evil" ideology still holds true.

Tsipras responded by saying the two leaders had a "very productive" meeting at the White House on Tuesday, and they "have common values . . . The value of democracy and freedom was born in Greece."

Trump jumped in when Tsipras was finished speaking and had this to say:

"I might just add that a number of countries were a little bit nervous at the beginning. I have very good relationships with the leaders of virtually every country that I have dealt with. The reason they were concerned is because I will not allow our country, the United States of America, to be taken advantage of by so many other countries all over the world.

"If you look at our trade deficits, massive trade deficits with virtually every country. Look at our jobs moving to certain countries. The companies are leaving, and they're firing the people, and the product is made elsewhere. Then it's sold back to the United States. I'm not going to be allowing that."
