President Trump, joined by Vice President Mike Pence gave brief remarks in the White House briefing room Tuesday touting the Dow hitting 30,000, a milestone nearly 125 years in the making.
“I just want to congratulate everybody. The stock market, Dow Jones Industrial Average, just hit 30,000, which is the highest in history. We’ve never broken 30,000, and that’s just, despite everything that’s taken place with the pandemic.
I’m very thrilled with what’s happened on the vaccine front, that’s been absolutely incredible. Nothing like that has ever happened, medically, and I think people are acknowledging that, and it’s having a big effect.
But the stock market’s just broken 30,000, never been broken that number. That’s a sacred number 30,000, nobody thought they’d ever see it. That’s the ninth time since the beginning of 2020. 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 work so hard. And most importantly, I want to congratulate the people of our country, because there are no people like you. Thank you very much, everybody. Thank you.”
