We spoke to the USS Monterey — great ship, great missile ship. We spoke to a lot of different folks from the Air Force, the Army — just now, a little while ago at Mar-a-Lago.”
“Your whole, long life, the stock market is higher than its ever been. And that means your 401(k), all of the things that you have, whether its — even if you’re in the military, you have a country that’s really starting to turn.“
