In President Donald Trump’s Tuesday congressional address, he referred to himself half as many times as Obama did in his congressional address.

President Trump planned to to himself during his first speech to a joint session of Congress at a much lower rate than former President Barack Obama did in his first address in February 2009, roughly half as often.

During Obama’s first such address eight years earlier, he said “I” a total of 68 times.
