Trade Dispute With China Settled: US President Donald Trump

DAVOS: Thousands of miles from his Washington impeachment trial, President Donald Trump took center stage at Davos to tout the success of the U.S. economy, while criticizing the U.S. Federal Reserve on Tuesday.

Trump, marking his second meeting of global political and business leaders at the World Economic Forum (WEF), also told a packed auditorium that trade deals struck this month with China and Mexico represented a model for the 21st Century.

“The Fed raised rates too quickly and has lowered them too slowly,” Trump said of the Federal Reserve, taking aim at the central bank’s policy decisions.

In a wide-ranging address pitched to appeal to the Davos crowd, touting the achievements of his administration despite his unorthodox approach, Trump picked up on some of the themes he voiced when he first addressed the WEF two years ago.
