Trump's remarkable remarks at Davos

President Donald John Trump's address at Davos this morning was a lesson on governance by a man who entered politics less than 5 years ago.

Our president said, "America’s newfound prosperity is undeniable, unprecedented and unmatched anywhere in the world. 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."

That is incredible. A billionaire spoke to fellow billionaires, fellow world leaders, and academics not about the swell digs they were staying at or the lush cuisine they enjoyed.

President Trump talked about actually serving the people who entrusted them with power.

He said, "Every decision we make on taxes, trade, regulation, energy, immigration, education and more is focused on improving the lives of everyday Americans. Only when governments put their own citizens first will people be fully invested in their national futures."

The president went through all the economic numbers. 3.5% unemployment. Consumer confidence up. Records shattered in the stock market. But his remarks on governing -- words that the press will largely ignore -- underscored the point that he indeed is the people's president.

He said, "Today I urge other nations to follow our example and liberate your citizens from the crushing weight of bureaucracy."

Putting the people first is straight out of Sun Tzu, who said, "Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look upon them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death."

There. I just explained why Donald Trump's supporters do not waver.

I hope Boris Johnson took notes. Emmanuel Macron, alas, is a lost cause. So much promise, so little accomplished.

  1. And President Trump did NOT go last year, because...

    Border security had caused the partial gov't shutdown.

    This year: Mexico is providing a 'virtual' wall under threat of tariff - Dems are stumbling to the death of their party via shampeachment - Muller bombed, remember 2019 was '...and a Mueller New Year' - wall funding freed from litigation - trade deals - USMCA - etc, etc.

    What a difference a year makes.

    1. Wasn't it just last year that Nancy Piglosi and almost the whole Dem House had planned a vacay in Davos, but had their plans disrupted when President Trump took away their military flight (because of the government shut down), forcing them to fly "peasant class" on a commercial flight?
      Ahhh....Good Times

  2. I am getting wistful thinking there will only be 5 more years of oh so much winning. I hope that President Donald John Trump spends the next term working on reining in spending (federal tax receipts last year were the highest EVER in history) - like Andrew Jackson, who retired the Federal Debt, putting in place a succession team to carry on his American-first policies, and have AG Barr 'relocate' Democrat/Republican pols that have looted the country and sold it out to foreign interests.

    1. Hey Matt, I predicted Trump would be a one-termer of his own choice, because there would be nothing more to fix after 4 years and Mr. T is not wired to be a caretaker. Luckily for us, the LibCommies threw so much shite in his path that the agenda remains unfinished. Thanks, snowflakes and soccer moms!

  3. If CIA Charlie’s testimony has been overtaken by events as Democrats claim, then he doesn’t need his phony “Whistleblower”-status anymore, does he? You can’t have it both ways. Charlie can tell us how he conspired with Michael Atkison, Mary McCord, Vindman and Schiff to frame the President–yet again. I'm sure they'll want to testify to clear this up.

    And then let’s hear from former FBI Washington Bureau Chief, CrowdStrike’s Shawn Henry. He can tell us all about the DNC’s server, about Ukrainian corruption and, just for fun, how he and Rod Rodentstain broke into CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s computer.

    I’m still waiting to hear this explanation: What is the non-corrupt way in which Hunter Biden can receive millions from these regimes while his father is handing out billions in cash and policy to them? I don’t see one–do you?

    Ambassador Yovonovitch said she was coached by State Dept. officials on how to sugar-coat the Bidens’ graft. That means one of two things: either the State Department ruled it was legal or they knew it was crooked and looked the other way. We should hear from that official.

    Then we should hear from the Southern District of New York. They can tell us why their Democrat prosecutors get to abuse the legal system to pressure others into phony charges aimed at their political enemy, the President. This is the very thing the President is falsely accused of doing.

    And as our final witness, since these fraudulent Bill of Attainder-charges allege the abuse of presidential power by using foreign governments to rig an election, we must call America's #1 expert in the field: Barack Hussein Obama.

    If we’re going to have witnesses, then let’s name all the babies. Hunter does.

    1. I get that these scoundrels need to face the consequences of their acts, but I don't believe the impeachment process is the place for it and I'd prefer our senators get back to appointing judges. Every day we're hung up on impeachment is a win for the Communist.

      The people you named need to be tried in a criminal court.

      I don't understand why Vindman hasn't been court-martialed for intentionally leaking classified info. I figured he'd be the first to see a jail cell.

  5. PDJT is one of the best speech makers ever. Whomever helps him write the speeches Is invaluable.

    Sadly, much of what he said today will fall upon deaf ears.

    1. That's if what PDJT says even gets reported.

    2. The white House no longer gives them sole custody of speech videos. The full speech is linked on Twitter, the White House web site, and I assume Facebook. Later today it will be on You Tube. That's how I watched the full video of his speech to the Farm Bureau convention yesterday.

      I also watch almost every rally on RSBN or OANN, whose coverage is linked from Twitter. They show the crowds, and RSBN interviews people waiting in line, too. I will make the coverage that I want, thank you very much. The networks and canble news channels are either total propaganda outlets and enemies of the people like CNN and MSNBC, or they are driven partially by profits and caterwauling from the Nevertrumpers and liberal talk hosts, like Fox. Kudos to Fos, however, for divestingi themselves of Shep Smith, who no doubt formed a black hole in their afternoon ratings.

  6. Every time he put AMERICAN CITIZENS FIRST! It's odd, but TELLING, that the democrats criticize and condemn him for that - WHY??? Are they NOT AMERICANS? Do they NOT REPRESENT AMERICANS?? Those questions should be VERY HIGH on anyone's list of "who should get my VOTE"! All the peckerheads of states that are at DAVOS should listen and LEARN - FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP and not pay any attention to "Scoldilocks"!

    1. No, Democrats are no longer Americans and don't care about Americans. That should be pretty clear from the immigration issue alone. As for the billionaires at Davos, they are the driving wheel behind globalism.

  7. Great piece Don. Our own globalist leaders sold us out for the global demographics of market share. They sold out America as the EU sold out the nations of Europe. They sold out their own people and the paradigm of nationalism. Trump showed us we could put Humpty Dumpty back together again. America is her people unbound, free markets for free men

  8. "I hope Boris Johnson took notes. Emmanuel Macron, alas, is a lost cause."
    The jury is still out on our PM Scott Morrison. Trump appears to think highly of him - certainly he rates ScoMo higher than he did that vain fool Malcolm Turnbull. But Morrison really needs Trump's steel in his spine - and lower down, too.

  9. Emmanuel Macron did have so much promise. He made plenty of promises, but unlike Trump he had no intention of keeping any of them. Macron was a manufactured candidate placed between Marie Le Pen and the left. He was suppose to be the golden mean, between the extremes. He was created by the global plutocracy because they feared Le Pen would win.

  10. Kudos for quoting Sun Tzu X.20. I first encountered that verse in Thomas Anderson's Korea novel, and often recited it to myself when I led a squad in the Delta.

  11. Even more incredible was the gentleman from Africa that followed. Rush was playing a bit of it; the man flat out thanked DJT, flat out said "we love America", plus a few more things.
