A month before the 2020 election, President-elect Donald Trump told supporters at a campaign rally in Colorado that he’d “get to work” and get the United States back on track, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.
In an address to the Republican National Convention, Trump pledged to rebuild the U.S. economy, hire and train the “strongest workers” and tackle global threats like climate change.
“Let me be very clear, this is the time for the U-S-A to get back to work,” he said.
“We’re going to be strong and we’re going on the road to recovery.”
In his speech, Trump promised to “get back to the work we’ve always done.”
“And, by the way, when you get back, you’re going back to where you belong, you’ve always belonged, and you’ll never go back,” he continued.
“And you’re not going to see it like it was before.
You’re going in the right direction.”
The president-elect made his promise during his speech to a raucous Republican crowd.
“You’re going home,” he told the crowd.
Trump’s campaign didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
After taking office, Trump appointed an anti-trade, anti-worker, anti-“globalist” trade commission, and put a temporary halt to federal government procurement for U.N. peacekeeping missions.
The president also ordered the U,S.
military to withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement.
During his campaign, Trump also promised to cut corporate taxes, and he has pledged to renegotiate trade deals that have hurt U.K. workers.
“I don’t want to go back to a time where we had to pay a lower tax rate than other countries,” he declared in an early September speech.
“That was a terrible thing.
It cost us $1 trillion.
That was the greatest economic disaster of all time.”
Trump has promised to roll back some of President Obama’s achievements and to move the U’s embassy to Jerusalem.
In June, Trump proposed the construction of a border wall along the U.-Mexico border with Mexico.
Trump and many Republicans have expressed opposition to the plan, citing fears of violent protests at the U border.
Trump, meanwhile, has proposed building a border barrier on the U., with his proposed wall a half-mile wide, a $6 billion proposal that has been fiercely opposed by many Republicans.
