As the Senate impeachment trial began on Tuesday, its target, President Donald Trump was in Davos, Switzerland, where he delivered what conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh called “one of his finest speeches of his entire administration.”
“The president in Davos today is speaking for America,” Limbaugh told his listeners. “The president in Davos today is speaking for the future of America. It isn’t today’s Democrats. It isn’t today’s leftists. It’s the president. He was on fire, and it may be one of his finest speeches of his entire administration.”
President Trump @WEF in Davos may be giving his best speech ever… educating global leaders about the power of American capitalism.
“I knew if we unleashed the potential of our people, economic prosperity would come roaring back.”

Rush Praises Trump
Limbaugh said the President eloquently pushed back against the liberal notion that somehow “America is the problem in the world.”
“This is exactly what bothers him,” Rush said. “It’s bothered him for a long time as a citizen like it’s bothered me, like it’s bothered you, this view of America that has been adopted by the Washington establishment — by our civil service corps, the ambassador corps — that somehow we’re the problem, that we are the destabilizing agent in the world, and it’s a bunch … It’s a crock.”
“[T]hey love him in Davos, and you know why?” said Limbaugh. “‘Cause he’s been right … [T]he guys that own the yachts are there, and Trump has been going, and he’s telling them two years ago what he was gonna do. He’s telling them two years ago what can be possible.”

Limbaugh said it was these same elites who “fall prey to all of this liberal thinking and the conventional wisdom — and they fall prey to it because it’s so dominant everywhere,” and yet Trump went to Davos to blow up that establishment orthodoxy.
“Trump stands alone, tells them, ‘No. It’s wrong. America’s gonna be great. We’re coming back; let me tell you how we’re gonna do it,’ and he’s done it,” said Rush. “They love the guy in Davos now because he’s been right about it, and it’s all been beneficial to them — and it’s not just individual wealthy people I’m talking about. Its governments and a number of institutions which have been sucked in. I mean, if the United States elects a guy like Obama then the world thinks, ‘Wow. The United States wants to go socialist. We’d better go socialist. We’ve gotta stay friends with the U.S.,’ and even if they think it’s the wrong thing to do, they did it because they’re afraid of being shut out by the U.S.”
Trump: ‘America is winning again like never before’
Limbaugh then played a clip of President Trump’s speech to drive home his point.
Trump said, “When I spoke at this forum two years ago, I told you that we had launched the great American comeback. Today, I’m proud to declare that the United States in the midst of an economic boom the likes of which the world has never seen before. America’s thriving, America’s flourishing — and, yes, America is winning again like never before.”
President Trump’s speech at Davos will be historic and set a new framework for the world to look at America and understand America. The American economic record under Trump is so amazing that other leaders might want to listen and learn how they could apply it to create jobs.

“Just last week alone, the United States concluded two extraordinary trade deals, the agreement with China and the United States-Mexico-Canada agreement, the two biggest trade deals ever made,” Trump said. “These agreements represent a new model of trade for the twenty-first century — agreements that are fair, reciprocal, and that prioritize the needs of workers and families.”
“America’s economic turnaround has been nothing short of spectacular,” Trump continued. “When I took office three years ago, America’s economy was in a rather dismal state. The experts predicted a decade of very, very slow growth — or maybe even negative growth — high unemployment and a dwindling workforce and very much a shrinking middle class.”
“Millions of hardworking, ordinary citizens felt neglected, betrayed, forgotten.” Trump added. “They were rapidly losing faith in the system.”
“Exactly!” Limbaugh exclaimed, continuing to applaud Trump’s speech. “What were they being told? ‘America’s best days are behind us. America’s best days may not have been legitimate. We’re in a new era of decline mandated by world conditions. The United States finally must pay the price for all of its sins that it has committed that led to its superpower status.’ Yada yada yada. Obama’s crowd said, ‘We’re the ones to manage the decline so the pain will be as limited as possible on you.’”
How could anyone listen to Trump's lucid and thrilling speech at Davos today and conclude this man is anything but brilliant?
Compare that performance to Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden bumbling and stumbling all over their words.

‘It isn’t necessary to see the world this way’
“That’s just three years ago that Trump came along and said, ‘This is not necessary! It’s not necessary to see the country this way.”
“It isn’t necessary to see the world this way,” Limbaugh emphasized.
So while Democrats focus on trying to tear our country apart with their impeachment sideshow, Rush Limbaugh says Donald Trump just showed the world how he is actually making America great again.
Given this contrast, which party do you think might look most attractive to American voters in November?
