President Trump sung the praises of the U.S. economy at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Tuesday, telling the global business community that the changes in America’s economy under his administration have been “nothing short of spectacular.”

He told the crowd that when he last spoke at the WEF early into his presidency that his administration was undertaking the “great American comeback.”

“Today I’m proud to declare the United States is in the midst of an economic boom, the likes of which the world has never seen before,” he said in his address. “We’ve regained our stride, rediscovered our spirit, and reawakened the powerful machinery of American Enterprise.”

Trump vowed that “radical socialists” would never ruin the U.S. economy and spoke of his confidence in America’s future. 

“The American dream is back—bigger, better, and stronger than ever before,” the president declared. 

He said everything his administration has done has been for the betterment of the average American.

“America’s newfound prosperity is undeniable, unprecedented and unmatched anywhere in the world,” Trump said. “America achieved this stunning turnaround not by making minor changes to a handful of policies, but by adopting a whole new approach centered entirely on the wellbeing of the American worker.”

He continued: “Every decision we make on taxes, trade, regulation, energy, immigration, education and more is focused on improving the lives of everyday Americans. Only when governments put their own citizens first will people be fully invested in their national futures.”

Trump also took a swipe at climate activists.

"These alarmists always demand the same thing - absolute power to dominate, transform and control every aspect of our lives," he said, noting they're "the heirs of yesterday's foolish fortune tellers."

Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg was in attendance, and after his speech opened a session called "Averting a Climate Apocalypse."

"I've been warned that telling people to panic about the climate crisis is a very dangerous thing to do," she said. "But trust me it's fine."

She blasted political and business leaders for their continued "empty words and promises."

"You say, 'We won't let you down. Don't be so pessimistic.' And then, silence."
