U.S. President Donald Trump returned to the White House, Tuesday, November 12, after delivering a speech to the Economic Club of New York in which he said "we have delivered on our promises - and exceeded our expectations by a very wide margin."
The president, who is campaigning for a second term and views the economy as a selling point with voters, spoke about his efforts to roll back federal regulations and enact massive tax cuts at the end of his first year in office. He also mentioned low unemployment rates across major demographic groups.
Trump delivered the speech against a backdrop of anxiety over his administration's trade policies, including talks with China meant to de-escalate an 18-month trade war. Trump also criticized policymaking by the Federal Reserve.
