“HISTORIC PROGRESS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE”
by Sharon Rondeau
Beginning with the economy, Trump said that “93% of our domestic manufacturers have expressed optimism in the future,” which he said is a “historic record.”
He stressed the accelerated efforts of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to apprehend and detain criminal illegal aliens following what he said was a “full-fledged border crisis” inherited from the Obama regime.
Trump said that illegal border crossings have been reduced 64% from February to March of this year.
“With time, dedication and effort we will get the job done,” Trump said, referring to better border protection and immigration policies.
He recounted the several meetings he conducted with world leaders this past week, including Jordan’s King Abdullah, Chinese President Xi Jinping, and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
Trump did not mention his order, announced on Thursday night after it was carried out, of an airstrike on a Syrian airfield believed to have been the storage facility for chemical weapons which killed scores of Syrians on Tuesday.
