November 24th local time, U.S. President Trump briefly entered the White House briefing room for a one-minute impromptu speech, which was Trump’s first speech since the U.S. Federal General Administration (GSA) allowed Biden to start the transition of power.
CNBC : Trump suddenly appeared at the White House press conference on the 24th, touting the Dow Jones Industrial Average breaking through the 40,000 mark for the first time, and then left 62 seconds later without informing reporters in advance or answering any questions. U.S. media pointed out that this was the shortest speech in history since he appeared on the rostrum of the White House press conference.
At the press conference, Trump said: “I just want to congratulate everyone that the Dow Jones Industrial Average has just reached 308 points, which is an all-time high. Despite the outbreak just now, we never broke through 30000 points. It’s a divine number, and no one thinks they can meet.” Trump said: “This is the ninth record-breaking since the beginning of 2020, and the 48th time in Trump’s presidency.
I want to congratulate all those who have worked hard in this regard in the U.S. government, and I also want to congratulate the people of this country, because no one can do like you. Thank you all. Subsequently, Trump turned around and left the briefing room, followed by Vice President Pence of the United States.
It is understood that the three major stock indexes of the New York stock market opened high on the 24th, among which the Dow Jones Industrial Average broke through the 30000-point integer mark for the first time.
Founded in 1896, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is composed of 30 large-cap blue chip stocks in the U.S. stock market. It has long been regarded as a barometer of the U.S. economy.
The index broke through the 20,000-point integer mark for the first time in January 2017, and hit a previous all-time high of 29,964.29 points in the 16th of this month.
