(CNSNews.com) – President Donald Trump used his speech at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in Indianapolis to lash out at Democrats for pushing the Russian “collusion delusion.”
“America’s future has never been brighter, and yet, Democrats have never been angrier, especially now that their collusion delusion has been exposed to the world as a complete and total fraud. It’s been the greatest political hoax ever in our country. Instead of working with us to rebuild our infrastructure, lower drug prices, which by the way, this year for the first time in 50 years, drug prices went down. It’s going to down a lot lower,” he said.
“And instead of working with us to fix our trade deals - which I’m doing without them - and continue creating millions and millions of new jobs - which we’re doing at a level that people have not seen before, that people don’t even believe - Democrats are obsessed with hoaxes, delusions, and witch hunts,” Trump said.
Trump said the “bad apples” tried for a “coup,” but that “didn’t work out so well.”
“Every day of my administration, we are taking power of Washington, D.C., and returning it to the American people where it belongs. And you see it now better than ever with all of the resignations of bad apples. They’re bad apples. They tried for a coup, didn’t work out so well. And I didn’t need a gun for that one, did I? All was taking place at the highest levels in Washington, D.C.,” he said.
“You’ve been watching. You’ve been seeing. You’ve been looking at things that you wouldn’t have believed possible in our country – corruption at the highest level, a disgrace – spying, surveillance, trying for an overthrow, and we caught them,” Trump added.
The president touted the economic success of his administration, announcing that the gross domestic product grew at an annual rate of 3.2 percent, exceeding economists’ expectations.
“Our economy is now the hottest anywhere on the planet Earth. Just this morning, we learned that the GDP smashed expectations with the economy growing at an annual rate of 3.2 percent in the first quarter, always the worst quarter for whatever reason – 3.2,” he said.
“And if we kept the same interest rates and the same quantitative easing that the previous administration had, that 3.2 would have been much higher than that, but they hadn’t hit these numbers in 16 years. We had a tremendous increase in inventory investment - you know what that means - and listen to this, a very big increase in net exports,” the president said.
“Blue collar jobs recently grew at the fastest rate in more than three decades. Nearly five million Americans have been lifted off of food stamps since our election. Wages are rising fast, and the lowest paid workers are making the biggest percentage gains of all,” he said. “Unemployment recently achieved its lowest rate in 51 years, and very shortly, it should be its lowest rate in the history of our country.”
He also said unemployment for African-Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanic Americans is at the lowest levels in history.
