President Trump delivered remarks at the White House Wednesday afternoon to the American Legion Boys Nation and Auxiliary Girls Nation, two groups in which young men and women are acting as “senators” for their respective states and participating in a mock lawmaking processes.
In his address to the students, Mr. Trump called his election “a pretty amazing moment” in history.
“We’re doing a good job, our country is doing so well now,” Mr. Trump said of his presidency. “We’re doing a good job. Are you all happy?” he then asked the students, who responded with claps.
The president then went on to say that his administration has created the “best job numbers in 17 years,” adding that “enthusiasm for manufacturers and business is at just about the highest point since they started taking those tests.”
