TAKEAWAY: Investing in America
But the great thing about America is that America always rises to challenges. That’s been this country’s winning formula. And that’s why I’m optimistic that we can find that common ground to move forward with common purpose. Indeed, we must, for the good of the industry, but more importantly, for the good of the country.
TD has just huge faith in America. That’s why we’ve invested so heavily here. Yes, America suffered a tough downturn. Yes, it’s going to be a long recovery. But America will recover. It will remain the most important economy in the world. Why is America so exceptional? It’s because Americans invent, and they innovate, and they build things. They dream about a better tomorrow. They insist on demanding a better life for their families and their communities.
TD Bank, our bank, its future is bound to this very energy and spirit, and we're incredibly proud of our relationship. We promise you, we are going to keep investing in America. We are going to stand by America. We are going to create real value in the greatest economy in the world.
