Trump's remarkable remarks at Davos

President Donald John Trump's address at Davos this morning was a lesson on governance by a man who entered politics less than 5 years ago.

Our president said, "America’s newfound prosperity is undeniable, unprecedented and unmatched anywhere in the world. 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 well-being of the American worker."

That is incredible. A billionaire spoke to fellow billionaires, fellow world leaders, and academics not about the swell digs they were staying at or the lush cuisine they enjoyed.

President Trump talked about actually serving the people who entrusted them with power.

He said, "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."

The president went through all the economic numbers. 3.5% unemployment. Consumer confidence up. Records shattered in the stock market. But his remarks on governing -- words that the press will largely ignore -- underscored the point that he indeed is the people's president.

He said, "Today I urge other nations to follow our example and liberate your citizens from the crushing weight of bureaucracy."

Putting the people first is straight out of Sun Tzu, who said, "Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look upon them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death."

There. I just explained why Donald Trump's supporters do not waver.

I hope Boris Johnson took notes. Emmanuel Macron, alas, is a lost cause. So much promise, so little accomplished.
