Trump: US needs strong dollar
US President Donald Trump said in Davos that the dollar will strengthen over time under his leadership.
"The dollar is going to get stronger and stronger, and ultimately I want to see a strong dollar," Trump said in an exclusive interview with CNBC from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
"Our country is becoming so economically strong again and strong in other ways, too.," he added.
Trump's latest remarks about the dollar diverge from his past comments. Last April, Trump said he was worried the dollar was "getting too strong."
