President Trump took to Twitter to wish Americans a happy Thanksgiving and touted the surging stock market, job growth, a vow to build a border wall and a new Supreme Court justice as evidence of his administration’s accomplishments.
“HAPPY THANKSGIVING, your Country is starting to do really well. Jobs coming back, highest Stock Market EVER, Military getting really strong, we will build the WALL, V.A. taking care of our Vets, great Supreme Court Justice, RECORD CUT IN REGS, lowest unemployment in 17 years,” Trump wrote on the site.
A few minutes later Trump, who is spending the Thanksgiving holiday at his exclusive Florida resort, posted one more tweet.
“MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!,” it said.

And building a wall along the Mexican border was a top rallying cry for Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign.
