President Donald Trump is taking aim at critics who say he is being unfair to Americans, even if he is trying to be fair.
“I am being fair,” Trump told supporters in Phoenix on Tuesday, his first public speech since he took office.

Trump and Democratic rival Hillary Clinton are competing for the Democratic presidential nomination, with Trump holding a narrow lead in the polls and Clinton in the middle.
Trump has made many promises, from building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to a ban on Muslim immigration, to ending all trade with countries that do not pay for the border wall.

“When we get down to the final four, we will get down and dirty and we will tell them exactly how we are going to do it,” he said at the time.
“If we do it right, we’ll win, we won’t lose.”
