I'm here today to represent the interests of the American people, and to affirm America's friendship and partnership in building a better world. I'm here to deliver a simple message. There has never been a better time to hire, to build, to invest and to grow in the United States.
America is open for business and we are competitive once again. We support free trade but it needs to be fair and it needs to be reciprocal because in the end, unfair trade undermines us all. The United States will no longer turn a blind eye to unfair economic practices, including massive intellectual property theft, industrial subsidies, and pervasive state-led economic planning.
As President of the United States, I will always put America first just like the leaders of other countries should put their country first also. But America first does not mean America alone.
