"We have recovered our strength," Trump said in his speech. "The United States is thriving again ... and the American dream is coming back stronger than before."
The President spoke extensively of the US economic data, and said that "the United States is recording economic growth the world has not seen before."
Trump also compared the economic conditions that the country reached under his presidency compared to the presidency of his predecessor, Barack Obama. He said: "Every decision we make aims to improve the lives of the average American citizen ... We are working to build an American economy whose effects will be reflected on everyone."
Trump also pointed out that the United States is "approaching the stage of independence from others in the field of energy."
The US president praised relations with China after the first trade agreement was concluded with it. "Our relations with China are better than ever," he said. "It is China, and I am the United States," Trump said, referring to Chinese President Xi Jinping, who described him as a good friend. But otherwise we love each other. ”
Trump mentioned that the trade agreements that he concluded, especially with China, are a model for trade in the twenty-first century, expressing his aspiration to conclude more bilateral agreements, with Britain, for example, after its exit from the European Union.
It is reported that Trump entered into a trade war with China and partners in liberalizing trade in North America, Mexico and Canada, which led to turmoil and damage in the global economy.
The Davos Forum will be held over a period of 4 days in the Swiss Alps with the participation of about 3 thousand participants from the economic, political and social circles.
The forum is about combating climate change and geopolitical crises in the Middle East and Libya, for example. The forum this year comes under the slogan "Contributors for a Coherent and Sustainable World."
On the other hand, the US President denounced what he described as a "omen of pessimism" who warn that the world is on the verge of a major environmental crisis, during a speech that included Swedish teenager defending the environment Greta Tonberg, according to a report by the French Press Agency.
"We must reject the eternal harbingers' warnings and their predictions of the end of the world," Trump said, hours after he addressed the World Economic Forum Tonberg in Davos, where she indicated that governments had done "nothing" to confront climate change.
