President Donald Trump saluted Women's History Month Wednesday by paying tribute to "American women in every generation who have shown extraordinary grit, courage and devotion.

"Our present generation stands on the shoulders of these titans — and that's what they were and are, titans," Trump said at the White House, flanked by many women who are serving in his Cabinet, including United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

He also thanked first lady Melania Trump for attending the event and expressed amazement at the "so many young faces that represent the future of leadership in our country" who visited the White House.

"My Cabinet is full of really incredible women leaders," the president said. "I'm so proud that the White House and our administration is filled with so many women of such incredible talent."

He lauded such historical women figures as Abigail Adams, Harriet Tubman and Susan B. Anthony.

She "dreamed of a much more fair and equal future and an America where women themselves, as she said, should help to make laws and elect the lawmakers," Trump said of Anthony.

"That's what's happening more and more. Tough competition out there."

The president also pledged that "my administration will work every day to ensure that our economy is a place where women can work, succeed and thrive like never before.

"That includes fighting to make sure that all mothers and all families have access to affordable child care.

"We want every daughter in America to grow up in a country where she can believe in herself, believe in her future and follow her heart and realize her dreams," he said.

"And we want a country that celebrates family, that celebrates community and that creates a safe and loving home for every child. Every child.

"That's what we want."
