How The Senate prepared to open a trial trial against him, President Donald Trump ignored the issue and instead boasted about the economy on Tuesday in a campaign speech at a global forum.

“The United States is thriving, the United States is flourishing and, yes, the United States is winning again as never before,” Trump said at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Subsequently, the president refused to involve journalists about the political trial. When asked if his legal team would seek a quick dismissal of the charges of political trial, Trump said “this is all a total hoax, so I’m sure everything will work out.”

Trump does not plan to see the Senate trial while in Switzerland, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said: “You have a full day here in Davos, but the staff will inform you periodically.”

Instead, Trump used his Davos speech to promote his presidency, proclaim that “the American dream has returned” and present statistics such as the low unemployment rate, currently at 3.5 percent. The president sought to keep the focus on what he called an “economic boom like the world had never seen before.”

Trump spoke hours before the senators adopt the rules for the Senate political trial. The House accused Trump on December 18 for two articles of political trial: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Democrats accuse Trump of trying to bribe Ukraine to investigate an internal political rival, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, and retain the country’s assistant.

In a session with the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, Trump said: “We are going to talk about a good trade agreement” with Europe.
