Trump touts 'blue collar boom' in speech to global elite


Jan. 21, 2020

'America is winning again like never before'
President Trump touted the U.S. economic boom in a speech to global leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Tuesday.
The 30-minute long speech touched on key components of his economic initiatives, including job creation, trade improvements and energy independence.
“America’s thriving, America’s flourishing, and yes, America is winning again like never before,” Trump said.
The president reeled off a number of accomplishments for the labor force under his leadership, pointing to the more than 7 million jobs created, helping push the unemployment rate to 3.5 percent, its lowest in 50 years.
He said earnings growth of the bottom 10 percent of Americans is outpacing that of the top 10 percent, adding that real median household income is at an all-time high. It amounts to a "blue-collar boom," Trump said.
He also cited record low unemployment numbers for African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Asian Americans.
“The American dream is back, bigger, better, stronger than ever before,” Trump said.
