US President Donald Trump gave a bizarre, rambling speech to members of the world’s political and financial elite at Davos on Tuesday, touting US economic achievements without once mentioning the elephant in the room — his impending Senate impeachment trial back home.
In his 30-minute speech at the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting, Trump lauded to the packed audience his recent trade deals with China and Mexico, and his administration’s efforts to improve the domestic economy, among others.
“Today I’m proud to declare the United States is in the midst of an economic boom, the likes of which the world has never seen before,” he said.
“America is thriving. America is flourishing and yes, America is winning again like never before.”
