DAVOS, Switzerland — U.S. President Donald J. Trump delivered a keynote speech at the World Economic Forum at Davos today, where he insisted that America First, does not mean America alone.
“When the United States grows, so does the world,” said President Trump in his half-hour speech from the podium at the World Economic Forum. “Just like we expect the leaders of other countries to protect their interests, as President of the United States, I will always protect the interests of our country, our companies, and our workers.
We will enforce our trade laws and restore integrity to the trading system.
Only by insisting on FAIR and RECIPROCAL trade can we create a system that works not just for the United States but for all nations.
As I have said, the United States is prepared to negotiate mutually beneficial bilateral trade agreements with all countries. This includes the countries in TPP 11, which are very important. We have agreements with several of them already. We would consider negotiating with the rest, either individually, or perhaps as a group, if it is in all of our interests.”
