During a meeting with members of his Cabinet at a golf course Saturday, President Donald Trump said the economy was a “mess” but is now “getting straightened out.”

“The economy is doing very, very well,” Trump said during a lunch at Trump National Golf Club in Virginia that he described as “part of a Cabinet meeting.”

“We really had a mess and it’s getting straightened out,” the president said.

Chief strategist Steve Bannon, chief of staff Reince Priebus, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and his fiancée, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and his wife, Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin and his wife, and press secretary Sean Spicer were all present at the meeting.

Trump’s comments come after the release of February’s jobs report Friday that showed 235,000 jobs were added during the first full month of Trump’s presidency, with the unemployment rate ticking down to 4.7 percent.

During a brief meeting with the press pool, Spicer said Trump “wanted to take some key members of his team out and have a working lunch to talk about the economy.”

Issues dealing with homeland security, Trump’s immigration executive order and health care were also discussed.
