Trump at Davos: ‘America is Winning Like Never Before’
President touts 'blue-collar boom' to crowd at World Economic Forum conference
President Donald Trump touted a massive “blue-collar boom” targeting the lower classes in the United States during his speech at the World Economic Forum conference in Davos, Switzerland, on Tuesday.
“This is a blue-collar boom,” the president stated.
“Since my election, the net worth of the bottom half of wage-earners has increased by 47 percent, three times faster than the increase for the top one percent.”
“The American dream is back, bigger, better, and stronger than ever before,” he said.
"America's thriving, America's flourishing, and yes, America is winning again like never before," Trump told the crowd.
“No one is benefiting more than America’s middle class,” he said.
“We have created 1.2 million manufacturing and construction jobs – a number also unthinkable," Trump said.
“America’s newfound prosperity is undeniable, unprecedented and unmatched anywhere in the world,” Trump added.
“America achieved this stunning turnaround not by making minor changes to a handful of policies, but by adopting a whole new approach centered entirely on the well-being of the American worker.”
“Every decision we make on taxes, trade, regulation, energy, immigration, education and more is focused on improving the lives of everyday Americans,” he said.
“Only when governments put their own citizens first will people be fully invested in their national futures.”
Neon Nettle reported in November alone, America created 266,000 new jobs.
The data revealed a record-breaking economy, despite earlier fears from critics of President Donald Trump of a possible recession in 2019 under his leadership.
During the conference, Trump took aim at climate alarmists but later announced that the U.S. would join the 'One Trillion Trees' initiative taking root at the conference.
Last year, Globalist George Soros slammed Trump at Davos suggesting that the US and China's cold 'trade war' "could soon turn into a hot one."
"An effective policy towards China can't be reduced to a slogan. It needs to be far more sophisticated, detailed, and practical, and it must include an American economic response to the Belt and Road Initiative,” he said.
“Regrettably, President Trump seems to be following a different course: make concessions to China and declare victory while renewing his attacks on US allies," Soros added.
But Trump put Soros's predictions to bed after signing phase one of a trade agreement with China last week.
The president's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow called it a "historic" and unprecedented agreement.
The National Economic Council director added that President Trump “had changed the narrative on China’s unfair trading practices.”
