On the first day of the new year, the White House released a video montage of important moments for President Trump in 2017, the first year of his presidency.
The three and a half minute video includes comments from President Trump’s various speeches and announcements, with video highlights of some of the many events he has participated in, from visiting military troops to hurricane victims to the U.S. Border Patrol.
In the video, Trump promises to defeat radical Islamic terrorism, notes the rising stock market, the cutting of unnecessary regulations, and vows to bring back Merry Christmas along with tax cuts.
In another video released by the White House on Saturday, President Trump reflected back on the first-year achievements during his weekly address video.
Over 2 million jobs have been created since the presidential election, Trump said, noting that unemployment is at a 17-year low and the stock market is at an all-time and continues rising.
“We’ve liberated the American economy from the Washington overreach, cutting 22 regulations for every one new regulation, the most in the history of our country by far,” Trump said.
He said a typical family of four, earning $75,000 will see their tax bill cut in half with the newly passed GOP tax reform bill, the president said, adding that Americans will begin seeing the tax cuts in their paychecks beginning in February.
He promised that he is now working with Congress to end chain migration and the visa lottery program.
“We are rebuilding our nation, rebuilding our confidence, and rebuilding our standing in the world,” Trump announced.
