President Donald Trump touted the achievements of his young presidency in his latest weekly address, including the steps he's taken to curb illegal immigration.

Trump, who is currently in Florida holding a summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping, covered border security, keeping America safe, and foreign policy in a speech that was close to four minutes in length.

"We inherited a full-fledged border crisis. It was a disaster. Yet with quick and bold steps, we have so far exceeded even the most bullish predictions for the progress we could make in so short a period of time," Trump said.

The president then referenced a 64-percent reduction in illegal immigration that's occurred at America's southern border and the apprehensions of criminal aliens across the country by ICE officers.

"Much work needs to be done to reverse decades of harm caused by open borer policies from Washington," Trump said. "But with time, dedication, and effort, we will get the job done and save countless lives in the process."

Trump spoke about his America first foreign policy as well, saying his administration is working to improve its partnerships with other nations.

"Providing security for the American people also means restoring America's standing in the world. From the very start of my presidency, I've worked to strengthen our alliances and improve our relationships all around the globe," Trump said.

"In matters both economic and military, we understand that a strong America is in the best interests of the world. That is why it is so important that as we strengthen international partnerships, we ensure their partnerships deliver real results for Americans and the American people."

It's unclear when the speech was taped, but the president did not mention Thursday night's U.S. missile attack on a Syrian air base — which came two days after the Syrian government allegedly attacked its own civilians with chemical weapons.
