In America, when we get knocked down, we don’t stay down. In the last 80 years, America has experienced 13 economic recessions. And fought back with 13 economic expansions. It was never easy, but it was always possible. If you’re bullish on America, and we are, then you’re bullish on getting up and coming back.

That’s not a belief. That’s history.
