Trump Denounces Tyranny of Socialism at Davos

The president reminded the world that America is not the problem but a leader for Liberty.

While the Senate was wrangling over rules for its impeachment trial, President Donald Trump was in Davos, Switzerland, at the World Economic Forum, where he gave one of the best speeches of his presidency. Trump was there to tout “the great American comeback” and to encourage world leaders to follow his lead and reject the doom-and-gloom prognostications of the globalists and their calls for socialism. “This is not a time for pessimism,” he declared. “This is a time for optimism. … The American Dream is back — bigger, better, and stronger than ever before. No one is benefitting more than America’s middle class.”

Trump blasted the climate alarmists for their fearmongering and destructive agenda: “Fear and doubt is not a good thought process because this is a time for tremendous hope and joy and optimism and action. But to embrace the possibilities of tomorrow, we must reject the perennial prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse. They are the heirs of yesterday’s foolish fortune-tellers. … They predicted an overpopulation crisis in the 1960s, mass starvation in the ‘70s, and an end of oil in the 1990s. These alarmists always demand the same thing: absolute power to dominate, transform, and control every aspect of our lives.”

He pointedly asserted, “We will never let radical socialists destroy our economy, wreck our country, or eradicate our Liberty. America will always be the proud, strong, and unyielding bastion of freedom.”

Overall, Trump’s speech was positive and full of hope for the future despite the looming impeachment trial he is facing at home. He concluded by stating, “Above all else, we will forever be loyal to our workers, our citizens, and our families — the men and women who are the backbone of our economies, the heart of our communities, and the soul of our countries. Let us bring light to their lives one by one and empower them to light up the world.”
