Amid unprecedented economic growth, the Trump administration has continued to work for the prosperity of all Americans. During the traditional Thanksgiving Turkey Pardon Tuesday, President Trump thanked all those who made the country’s recovery possible.
“During this Thanksgiving, we extend our eternal gratitude to the doctors, nurses, healthcare workers and scientists who have waged the battle against the China virus, he stated. “And we give thanks for the vaccines and therapies that will soon end the pandemic.”
The President’s promise comes as three pharmaceutical companies, Astrazeneca, Pfizer and Moderna, all released promising news about their coronavirus vaccines in the last week.
Before the highly-anticipated Rose Garden event, however, a record-breaking day for the Dow resulted in a surprise press briefing, where the President took a moment to share the latest evidence of economic recovery.
“The stock market Dow Jones Industrial Average just hit 30,000, which is the highest in history,”he stated. “We’ve never broken 30,000 and that’s despite everything that’s taken place with the pandemic…I’m very thrilled with what’s happened on the vaccine front.”
The President remarked that the 30,000 mark was a “sacred” milestone that economists never considered possible even in the best of financial times, much less in the thick of a pandemic. President Trump noted that his administration had routinely done the impossible.
“And it’s the 48th time that we’ve broken records in during the Trump administration and I just want to congratulate all the people within the administration that worked so hard,” he stated. “And most importantly, I want to congratulate the people of our country because there are no people like you.”
President Trump later shared a message from his campaign, highlighting the record as evidence of the “Great American Comeback.”
