Renewing Optimism: “Consumer confidence is at a twenty-year high. CEO confidence is at a seventeen-year high. Manufacturing confidence is at a thirteen-year high. People who are looking at the results of this President in the First 100 Days are seeing hope.”

Rolling Back Regulations: “They are seeing that this President is serious about rolling back the more onerous regulations that have sucked the very life out of our free-enterprise system. They are looking at a President who is talking about doing the things we have been talked about for decades, including cleaning up our tax system and becoming more competitive with the rest of the world.”

Tackling the Debt Crisis: “We have 20 trillion dollars in debt…You can't cut your way out of it. You can't tax your way out of it. You can't grow your way out of it. You have to do all of the above. The first thing you have to do is get the economy going but we have got to move towards fixing our broken budget process. It has worked only four times in the last forty-two years.”

Establishing America’s Interests: “We are re-engaging with the international community. President Trump has met with President Xi from China and talked about the problems in Asia. He sent [Secretary] Tillerson to Moscow. Vice President Pence just finished ten days in Asia. This is a President that is re-engaging with the rest of the world and trying to get our economy going again. I think he has really accomplished what he said he would do in the First 100 Days.”
