U.S. President Donald Trump said Sunday he sometimes tweets from bed in order to announce policy, assail his adversaries and to tangle with countries, including North Korea, over world affairs, in an interview with Britain's ITV channel.

When asked about whether he was lying in bed with his phone thinking of how to wind people up, Trump said: "Well, perhaps sometimes in bed, perhaps sometimes at breakfast or lunch or whatever, but generally speaking during the early morning, or during the evening I can do whatever, but I am very busy during the day, very long hours. I am busy."

"I will sometimes just dictate out something really quickly and give it to one of my people to put it on," he said.

Trump said that he was very popular in the United Kingdom. Some British politicians have called for Trump not to visit and 1.86 million people have signed a petition asking for him to be banned from entering the United Kingdom.

"I get so much fan mail from people in your country - they love my sense of security, they love what I am saying about many different things," Trump said.

Unsurprisingly, Trump also said he was not a feminist.

“I wouldn’t say I’m a feminist. … I’m for women, I’m for men, I’m for everyone,” he said. “I have tremendous respect for women,” said the president, who was accused of sexual assault years before he entered politics by more than a dozen women over the past two years.

Trump said women liked his support for a strong military as they often wanted to feel safe at home.

"There's nobody better than me on the military ... I think women really like that. I think they want to be safe at home," Trump said.
