- Diplomacy: Iran is removed from the Davos Forum after its foreign minister is removed from the list of speakers
Sure, resounding, trying to connect with the presidents of the multinationals present, US President Donald Trump has directed a harangue at the Davos Forum defending his economic model as the only one that brings prosperity. "We will never allow socialist radicals to destroy our economy," he said after launching a cataract of positive economic data from the US, from "the lowest unemployment rate for African Americans in history" to the records on Wall Street.
The president has vindicated his model of low regulation and taxes and has boasted of the new commercial agreements reached with Mexico or China thanks to his hard negotiation. "I have an extraordinary relationship with President Xi," he said before a crowded auditorium at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum.
On the day of the start of his impeachment process, Trump has shown himself without complexes in the face of the world's top financial class: "The United States remains, by far, the first world economic power" and has assured "that there is no better place in the world to invest". He has fought world economic discouragement to the point that the president of the Forum, Klaus Schwab , thanked him for "the injection of optimism" he has brought. "The time of skepticism is over," Trump said. During his lecture he has not referred to his impeachment more than indirectly by claiming himself as a promoter of world economic growth, but previously he has described him as "farce" and "witch hunt" in brief statements to the press.
The president has had no qualms about criticizing his central bank in this international forum. " The Federal Reserve is dropping rates too slowly . " Nor has the presence in the auditorium of activist Greta Thunberg contained it, when she has charged against environmental pessimists. "We have to reject the perpetual prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse." He has presented current environmental activists as "heirs" of those who predicted in past decades an explosion of the population or the end of oil. He has claimed the importance of gas and oil even in today's economy and how the US can help Europe from any Russian supply cut.
However, he said that "the environment is important" for his Administration and has announced that he joins the initiative to plant a billion trees on the planet that is promoting the World Economic Forum in Davos. "I want water and cleaner air," Trump said.
The tenant of the White House has assured that he presented himself to the president "because he did not understand that so many jobs were ceded to other countries" and has criticized that previous presidents allowed the disappearance of 60,000 factories in the country . "The American dream is back." "America thrives, flourishes and wins like never before", have been some of its proclamations. According to IMF forecasts, the US maintains growth that doubles that of the Eurozone. Trump has not mentioned the EU, but "the wonderful British Prime Minister", with which he says he hopes to sign "a huge trade agreement."
