The American dream is back and its better than ever and there is no one better than the American middle class today, Mr. Trump said.

In a special address at the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual summit, he said since he last addressed Davos two years ago, the U.S. has enjoyed the great American comeback that he had predicted.

Today I am proud to declare that the United States is in the midst of an economic boom the like of which has never been seen before, he said.
