President Trump made his America-first pitch at the World Economic Forum in Davos today, touting the strength of the U.S. economy, telling the other world powers: "There has never been a better time to hire, to build, to invest and to grow in the United States."

Why it matters: Trump used the speech to reaffirm America as the leader in the global economy, but kept with his administration's motto in assuring the other countries that "America First does not mean America alone."
