Donald Trump puts economic growth at centre of his 2020 campaign

Trump laid out the central pillar of his 2020 re-election campaign on Tuesday, telling the Economic Club of New York that his policies have generated a boom in growth and jobs. “We have delivered on our promises and exceeded our expectations by a very wide margin,” Trump said. Meanwhile, US stocks rose as investors measured the likelihood of a partial trade deal between US and China. Earlier, the S&P500 pushed through 3,100 for the first time, partly on hopes the presidents would make positive comments on trade.
