WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) – President Donald Trump paid a post-Christmas visit to firefighters in Florida on Wednesday.

The president says the firefighters are “great people” who do “a fantastic job,” and he is thanking them for their service.

Trump also says the country is “doing well,” with the stock market and 401(k) retirement plans rising.

He says the United States is a “big, beautiful ship” that his administration is turning around.
