THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. What an amazing audience this is. (Laughter.) So many young faces that represent the future of leadership in our country. So true. Melania and I are deeply honored to join you. And, Melania, thank you for being here. (Applause.)
So as you know, Melania is a very highly accomplished woman and really an inspiration to so many. And she is doing some great job. In fact, I shouldn’t say this, but her poll numbers went through the roof last week. (Laughter.) What was that all about? Through the roof. (Applause.) She has to give us the secret, Mike, right? (Laughter.) Anyway, I appreciate it very much.
My Cabinet is full of really incredible women leaders. Administrator Linda McMahon, who has been a friend of mine for a long time -- (applause) -- long time. She’s done an incredible job in business, by the way. Administrator Seema Verma, Secretary Betsy DeVos, and, of course, my good friend from South Carolina who is a very tough competitor, I want to tell you -- Nikki Haley, Ambassador. She is doing fantastically well. (Applause.) And we’re also joined, of course, by Florida Attorney General, highly respected, Pam Bondi. So I want to thank you, Pam. Thank you. (Applause.)
Elaine Chao, our Secretary of Transportation, who’s a real expert. She was Secretary of Labor, but she said, I really wanted to be Secretary of Transportation. That’s a real expertise, and she’s doing incredibly. She would have been here, but she’s celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Department of Transportation right now as we speak. And we’re going to work on infrastructure and we’re going to put up one of the big and great infrastructure bills of all time. (Applause.) We’re going to get our infrastructure fixed in our country, and we’re going to rebuild our country, and that’s what we need. Lots of jobs, also. (Applause.)
And I want to thank Ford -- you saw their big announcement yesterday. And so many others are announcing tremendous numbers of jobs. (Applause.) They’re not leaving our country anymore, folks. They’re not leaving; they’re staying and they’re building right here.
So we really have these incredibly strong and dedicated leaders, and they’re with me and they’re with us. And I’m very happy about it. And I want to thank you as being representative, very much, of our group. Thank you all very much. Thank you. (Applause.)
And I’m so proud that the White House and our administration is filled with so many women of such incredible talent. This week, as we conclude Women’s History Month, we honor a great woman of American history. Since the very beginning, women have driven -- and I mean each generation of Americans -- toward a more free and more prosperous future.
Among these patriots are women like the legendary Abigail Adams -- right? -- (applause) -- who, during the founding, urged her husband to remember
