Donald Trump promises a 3.5% growth rate that will create 25 million new jobs in a speech to The Economic Club of New York on Thursday:
DONALD TRUMP: I am going to lower your taxes; I am going to get rid of massive amounts of unnecessary regulations, on business and in your life; Iām going to unleash American energy; Iām going to repeal and replace Obamacare; Iām going to appoint Justices to the Supreme Court who will follow the Constitution; Iām going rebuild our depleted military and take care of our vets; Iām going to save your 2nd amendment; Iām going to stop illegal immigration and drugs coming into our country, and yes, we will build the wall [Mexico will pay]; and Iām going to renegotiate our disastrous trade deals, especially NAFTA ā and we will only make great trade deals that put the American worker first.
And we are going to put our miners and our steelworkers back to work.
We will rebuild our roads, bridges, tunnels, highways, airports, schools and hospitals.
American cars will travel the roads, American planes will soar in the skies, and American ships will patrol the seas.
American steel will send new skyscrapers into the clouds.
American hands will rebuild this nation ā and American energy, harvested from American sources, will power this nation. American workers will be hired to do the job.
We will put new American metal into the spine of this country.
Jobs will return, incomes will rise, and new factories will come rushing back to our shores.
