President Donald Trump has long predicted he will build the greatest economy in American history again, this time saying in an exclusive sitdown with Newsmax TV that it will be "mind-boggling."
"We created the greatest economy in the history of our country," Trump told "Spicer and Co." in an interview with former press secretary Sean Spicer at the White House on Wednesday. "You know that very well, you were a part of it.
"We did something that, frankly, nobody thought was possible, and we'll do it again, and even better with a little time.
"And, in September and October, you're going to start seeing numbers that are going to be mind-boggling. I see it already, it's happening."
Trump said a series of unfortunate events like the coronavirus pandemic and civil unrest are twisting the narrative of how the country had done under his first term.
"I would like to have fair press, basically, because the numbers are obvious. They're there. If I don't say it, if I don't go on shows like this and other shows, I won't get those numbers out."
Trump, near the end of the interview with Spicer, credited a number of "superstars" in his administration, particularly with regard to economic growth, deregulation, and tax reform.
"I am already partially through rebuilding our economy a second time," Trump added. "We're going to have an economy very soon – not as people say 'will it be in 10 years' – it will be soon. It will be next year.
"We're going to have a phenomenal year, next year, unless a guy like [Joe] Biden wins and you know they want to raise everybody's taxes through the roof.
"What's that all about? You'll kill it. You'll totally kill what will be soon another golden goose."
Trump called the coronavirus shutdown "artificially closed" the U.S. economy.
"We did the right thing, but now it's time to open," he concluded.
