President Trump Participates in a Bilateral Meeting with the President of Romania


President Trump: Well,
thank you very much, everybody. It’s an honor to be with
the President of Romania, who’s highly respected
and done a great job. And I hear there’s a
little political season going on in Romania, but I
would imagine you’re going to do very well because
you’re very talented, you love the people. And we’ve had a great
relationship with Romania. The United States and
Romania have gotten along better than ever before. So, I want to
thank you for that. And we have a big trade
business going on, to be honest with you. We have – we do a lot of
trade with Romania, and they’re very
talented people. We buy, they buy. And you have a lot of
Romanian people in the United States,
very importantly. And they’re
tremendous people. They work very hard. Very, very successful. How many do you have
in the United States? Do you know? Has anyone
figured that out? President Iohannis: We
have quite a lot of Romanians in the
States, yeah. President Trump: I think
I know most of them, actually. President Iohannis:
(Laughs.) Very good people. President Trump:
Yeah, they are. They’re a great people. President Iohannis: Maybe
quarter of a million or so. President Trump: Yeah. It’s a lot. It’s a very large
population. But they – and they
love Romania, too, I will tell you that. They never forgot Romania. They’re very much inclined
that way, and that’s a good thing. Well, I want to thank
you, Mr. President, for being here. It’s a great honor. Thank you very much. PRESIDENT IOHANNIS:
Thank you so much, Mr. President. Great pleasure to be here. President Trump: Would you
like to say something? President Iohannis: Yeah,
I would, just on the line that it’s great to be
back here with you, Mr. President. And now we have the
opportunity to talk about our very good
strategic partnership. And under your strong
leadership, we progressed and we will
continue doing so. This is very important for
us, and I think we are on the right path, and I
thank you for that. President Trump: I think
we are on the right path. A lot of interesting
things happening also in your country, but we
appreciate the trade. And we’re going to have a
big meeting in a little while after this. We’re going to have a
private meeting, and we’re going to have a meeting in
the Cabinet Room with a lot of your officials. President Iohannis: Yeah. President Trump: And we
look forward to that. Yes, any questions? John? The Press: Mr. President,
what sort of contingency steps or plans is the
White House thinking about to stave off any kind
of economic slowdown? We’ve heard that there’s
been some talk of a payroll tax cut kicked
around, some other tax cuts. You’ve been talking about
a cut in the Fed rate, quantitative easing. What are you looking at? President Trump: Well, I’d
like to see a cut in the Fed rate because that
should’ve happened a long time ago. I think they’re being very
tardy in not doing in and not having done it sooner. They raised too quickly. And, you know, I’ve been
quite vocal on that. They also did
quantitative tightening, which was ridiculous. And so – and despite that,
you know, if you look – I guess you could call it
“normalized” – but if you look, our economy is
doing fantastically. And if you take a
look at the previous administration, they
weren’t paying interest. They had no
interest rates. They had loosening,
not tightening. And, frankly, it’s
a big difference. And our economy
is incredible. Our jobs – you look
at the jobs market. But you have to be
proactive, and so we really need a Fed cut
rate, because if you look at what’s going on with
the Europe – European Union, as an example,
they’re cutting. You take a look at Germany
and what they’re doing, and what they’re paying –
I mean, they’re actually doing something inverse. They’ve never seen –
nobody has ever seen it before. And we have to at least
keep up to an extent. So, right now, we’re
paying a very much higher rate of interest, and we
didn’t follow the world. And generally
speaking, that’s okay. But you can’t have that
much of a disparity. So we’re looking
for a rate cut. We could be really greatly
helped if the Fed would do its job and do a
substantial rate cut also. They were doing
quantitative tightening; very bad to do. They should do easing
– actual easing. No tightening. Or at a minimum, they
should be doing nothing about that. But they have to
do a rate cut. The other thing is, you
know, we’re looking at various tax reductions. But I’m looking at that
all the time anyway – tax reductions. That’s one of the reasons
we’re in such a strong economic position. We’re, right now, the
number one country anywhere in the world,
by far, as an economy. Europe has got a lot of
problems, and Asia has got a lot of problems. If you look at China,
China has had the worst year they’ve
had in 27 years. And they want to make a
deal with us, but I can tell you I’m not
ready to make a deal. Unless they’re going to
make the right kind of a deal, I’m not ready
to make a deal. So I don’t know, but I
will say this: Something will happen. It may be soon; it may
be a little bit later. But China very much
wants to make a deal. The Press: What kind
of tax cuts would you look at? We’ve heard again a
potential cut in the payroll tax, indexing
capital gains. What would you accept? President Trump: Well,
you know, we’ve been talking about indexing
for a long time. And many people like
indexing, and it can be done very simply. It can be done
directly by me. And so we’ve been
looking at that. As you probably have
heard, I can do it directly. So we’re talking
about indexing. And we’re always looking
at the capital gains tax, payroll tax. We’re looking at – I would
love to do something on capital gains. We’re talking about that. That’s a big deal; it
goes through Congress. Payroll tax is something
that we think about and a lot of people would
like to see that, and that very much affects the
working – the workers of our country. And we have a
lot of workers. Right now, by the way, we
have more people working today than we’ve ever had
before in the history of our country. We have almost 160 million
people working today. I think the word
“recession” is a word that’s inappropriate
because it’s just a word that the – certain people
– I’m going to be kind – certain people, and the
media, are trying to build up because they’d love
to see a recession. We’re very far
from a recession. In fact, if the Fed would
do its job, I think it would have a tremendous
spurt of growth. A tremendous spurt. The Fed is psychologically
very important. Less so, actually, but very
psychologically important. And if the Fed would do
its job, which it’s really done very poorly over the
last year and a half, you would see a burst of
growth like you’ve never seen before. And that would be lowering
interest rates and maybe putting some – if you look
at what China is doing, if you look at what Germany
is doing, if you look at what so many countries are
doing – putting some money in, because we want
to compete with these other countries. So I think that we
actually are set for a tremendous surge of
growth, if the Fed would do its job. That’s a big
“if,” frankly. But they should – the Fed
should – the Fed should be cutting. And I would say they
should say, at a minimum, 100 basis points over
a period of time, not at one time. But over a period of time. The Press: Mr. President,
can the country afford tax cuts when we’re
already running trillion-dollar deficits? President Trump: Well, I’m
not talking about – I’m not talking about doing
anything at this moment. But indexing is something
that a lot of people have liked for a long time. And it’s something that
would be very easy to do. And a lot of people
have been talking about indexing for many years,
and it’s something that I am certainly
thinking about. I can say that a majority
of the people in the White House, at the level that
does this kind of thing, they like indexing. So it is something
I’m thinking about. Payroll taxes – I’ve been
thinking about payroll taxes for a long time. Whether or not we do it
now or not is – it’s not being done because of
recession, because we are – legitimately, if we had
a cut in interest rates by the Fed – if they would do
their job properly, and if they would do a meaningful
cut, because they raise too fast, you would see
growth like you’ve not seen ever in this country. Now, if you go from the
election – that great November 8th day – if you
go from November 9th to present, you’re talking
about almost a 60 percent increase in the
stock market. You’re talking about
unemployment numbers that are the lowest in history,
in many categories, and, overall, almost the lowest
ever, in the history of our country. I think it was 1969. And we are set to
surpass that number. I mean, our country
is doing very well. When I spoke to the
President, we were just walking in and he said,
“Congratulations on the great success of your
economy and your country.” And I appreciated that. But our country is
doing very well. The Press: Mr. President,
would you agree strengthening American
military forces in Romania? President Trump: Well,
it’s one of the things we’ll be talking about
today, I assume. You might be
bringing that up. But it’s something
we’ll talk about. The Press: Mr.
President, next year, you host the G7. Would you like to have
Vladimir Putin back in the G7 and make it
the G8 again? President Trump: So it was
the G8 for a long time, and now it’s the G7. And a lot of the time, we
talk about – we talk about Russia. We’re talking about Russia
because I’ve gone to numerous G7 meetings. And I guess President
Obama, because Putin outsmarted him – President
Obama thought it wasn’t a good thing to have
Russia in, so he wanted Russia out. But I think it’s much
more appropriate to have Russia in. It should be the G8,
because a lot of the things we talk about
have to do with Russia. So I could certainly see
it being the G8 again. And if somebody would
make that motion, I would certainly be disposed
to think about it very favorably. But, as you know, for
most of the time, it was the G8. It included Russia. And President Obama didn’t
want Russia in because he got outsmarted. Well, that’s not the way
it really should work. The Press: Mr. President,
two years ago, you said that including Romania in
the Visa Waiver Program is a subject that
should be discussed. President Trump: Yeah. The Press: In this
meeting, will you discuss this issue? President Trump: We’ve
spent a lot of time on it. We’ve spent a lot of time
discussing it already. Our countries have been
discussing it, and we’re going to – we’re taking
it up today in a very important meeting
right after this one. Do you like the idea? It sounds like you
like the idea, right? The waiver – do
you like the idea? Okay. No, it’s something
we’re thinking about. The Press: Mr. President,
on Venezuela, is the White House in contact with
the Maduro regime – President Trump: Yes. The Press: – with his
number two, Cabello? President Trump: Well,
we’re – we are in touch. We’re talking to various
representatives of Venezuela. We’re helping Venezuela
as much as we can. We’re staying out of it,
but we are helping it, and it needs a lot of help. It’s an incredible
tribute to something bad happening, and
the something bad is socialism. And it’s amazing because,
15 years ago, it was one of the wealthiest
countries. Now it’s one of the
poorest countries. It has oil reserves; it
has a lot of things going, but it’s a very sad
thing what’s happened. They don’t have water. They don’t have food. And we are helping a lot. We are talking to the
representatives at different levels
of Venezuela. Yes. The Press: To Cabello? President Trump: I don’t
want to say who, but we are talking at a
very high level. The Press: What’s the
status of the trade deal that you want to seal with
Boris Johnson at the G7? President Trump: So, I
spoke with Boris Johnson. I think he’s going to be
a great Prime Minister. I think he’s going to
do a fantastic job. I’ve known him. A lot of people know
that we have a very good relationship. I think he’ll
be far superior. I think he’ll do something
that will be a very – I think he’s going to be
very important for the UK. I think he’s going
to be very important. Dealing with the European
Union – I hate to say this to you, but dealing with
the European Union is very difficult. They drive a hard bargain. They’re represented by
Jean-Claude, who is a friend of mine, but
he’s a tough man. He’s a very, very
tough man, and he’s a great negotiator. And we have all the cards
in this country because all we’d have to do is tax
their cars and they would give us anything they
wanted because they send millions of Mercedes over. They send millions
of BMWs over. But we’re talking to the
European Union and we’re going to see if we can
work something out. But I will say this:
Dealing with the UK, they have not treated
the UK very well. That’s a very tough
bargain they’re driving, the European Union. That’s a very
tough bargain. And I think that UK has
the right man in charge right now – the right
person in charge, in the form of Boris. The Press: And if I can
turn to Afghanistan: What is your current
thinking on pulling out the United States troops? President Trump: Well,
we’re talking to the government of Afghanistan,
we’re talking to the Taliban, and we’re
talking to others. And we’re looking at
different things. We’ve been there
for 18 years. It’s ridiculous. We have taken
it down a notch. We’re at about 13,000
people right now – 13,000 Americans. NATO has some troops
there too, by the way. And we’re having
good discussions. We’ll see what happens. We’ll see what happens. Look, it’s 18 years. We’re like – we’re not
really fighting; we’re a – almost more of a police
force over there. It’s been so many years. But we’re like
a police force. And we’re not supposed
to be a police force. And as I’ve said, and I’ll
say it any number of times – and this is not using
nuclear – we could win that war in a week if
we wanted to fight it. But I’m not looking to
kill 10 million people. I’m not looking to kill 10
million Afghans, because that’s what would have
to happen, and I’m not looking to do that. But it’s a war that has
been going on for almost 19 years now, and,
frankly, it’s ridiculous. But, with that being said,
it’s a dangerous place, and we have to always
keep an eye on it. The Press: It sounds
like you’d like to pull completely out,
if you could. President Trump: I’d
like to look at various alternatives. One of the alternatives
is going on right now. We’re talking about a plan
– I don’t know whether or not the plan is going
to be acceptable to me. And maybe it’s not going
to be acceptable to them. But we are talking. We have good talks
going, and we’ll see what happens. This is more than other
Presidents have done. But we have
brought it down. We are bringing some
of our troops back. But we have to
have a presence. Yes. The Press: Mr. President,
could you clarify your position on enhanced
background checks? After El Paso and Dayton,
you seemed to be fully in support – President
Trump: Right. The Press: – of
enhanced measures. When you were leaving
Bedminster, you seemed to suggest that we already
do have strong background laws, which a lot of
people read as you dialing back (inaudible). President Trump:
Well, we do have. I mean, I’m not doing
that to be cute. We have very, very
strong background checks right now. But we have, sort of,
missing areas and areas that don’t complete
the whole circle. And we’re looking at
different things. And I have to
tell you that it is a mental problem. And I’ve said it a hundred
times: It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger;
it’s the person that pulls the trigger. These are sick people, and
it is also that kind of a problem. And we’re looking at
mental institutions, which we used to have. Like, as an example, where
I come from in New York, they closed up almost
all of their mental institutions – or many of
them – and those people just went onto
the streets. And they did it for
budgetary reasons. Well, New York is not
unique; they’ve done that in many places. The Press: Would you
support either of the House bills that were
passed earlier this year? President Trump: Well,
I’m not going to get into that. But we are in very
meaningful discussions with the Democrats. And I think the
Republicans are very unified. We are very strong on
our Second Amendment. The Democrats are not
strong at all on the Second Amendment. I would say they’re weak
on the Second Amendment, and we have to be
careful of that. The Democrats would, I
believe – I think they’d give up the
Second Amendment. And the people that – a
lot of the people that put me where I am are
strong believers in the Second Amendment –
and I am, also. And we have to be very
careful about that. You know, they call it the
“slippery slope,” and all of the sudden, everything
gets taken away. We’re not going to
let that happen. The Press: President
Iohannis – President Trump: Yeah, go
ahead, please. The Press: For Mr.
President Iohannis, will you discuss the issue
of the fight against corruption in Romania
with President Trump? Will you discuss
this issue? President Trump:
Please, go ahead. President Iohannis: Well,
I hope so, because we have good results. And I want to share those
with President Trump. President Trump: And
what is your question? The Press: I was asking
about the fight against corruption in Romania. President Trump: So nice
to have a question about Romania. The Press: So I ask – I
ask you, will you discuss this issue, the fight
against corruption, with your Romanian counterpart? President Trump:
Sure, I will. Sure. The Press: Last time
you praised President – President Trump:
Sure, I will. Of course, I will. The Press: Last time you
praised – President Trump: But I think that this is
a man that can solve the corruption problem
in Romania. And he’s made big strides,
from what I hear. I haven’t been
there recently. But he’s made
very big strides. And I think he’s the
man that can solve the corruption problem. There are a number of
really terrific countries like Romania, but they
have a tremendous corruption problem. And I’ve heard you’ve
made tremendous progress. President Iohannis:
W did, sir. The Press: Mr. President,
what’s the status of your foreign aid cut package? Do you still support
cutting (inaudible)? President Trump: Well,
we’re looking at it. And we’re looking at
it in different ways. And we’re talking to
Republicans and Democrats about it. And certain things we can
save and certain things – it probably could be,
you know, a pennywise. Maybe it’s a pennywise. We’ll see. But we are looking at it. And we have some
things that are on the table very much. And we’ll let you know
over the next, probably, sooner than a week. The Press: Mr. President,
your administration has been taking steps to make
it easier to discriminate against LGBT people
in the workforce. Are you okay with
those actions? President Trump: Well, you
know, I just got an award and an endorsement
yesterday from a – the exact group, a group. They gave – you saw that. They gave me the
endorsement yesterday. And I was very honored
to – is it Log Cabin? The Log Cabin group. And I was very
honored to receive it. No, I’ve done very well
with that community. Some of my biggest
supporters are of that community. And I think they – and
I talk to them a lot about it. I think I’ve done really
very well with that community. As you know, Peter Thiel
and so many others, they’re – they’re
with me all the way. And they like the
job I’m doing. And I just got a big
endorsement from the Log Cabin group. Yeah. The Press: Mr. President,
you keep insisting that your trade war with China
– the trade war with China is not affecting the U.S. economy. But a lot of economists
disagree with that. And they worry that
if China goes into a recession, they’ll
pull us down with it. President Trump:
Well – well, okay. Let me – let me
tell you something. Number one, we’re doing
very well as an economy. But somebody had
to take China on. You know, I read and I
see so much and I read so much, and I’ll see
these economists saying, “Oh, give up. Give up on China. Give up.” China has been ripping
this country off for 25 years – for
longer than that. And it’s about time,
whether it’s good for our country or bad for our
country short term. Long term, it’s imperative
that somebody does this because our country cannot
continue to pay China $500 billion a year
because stupid people are running it. So I don’t mind
this question. Whether it’s good or bad,
short term, is irrelevant. We have to solve the
problem with China because they’re taking out $500
billion a year-plus. And that doesn’t include
intellectual property theft and other things. And also, national
security. So, I am doing this
whether it’s good or bad for your – your statement
about, “Oh, will we fall into a recession
for two months?” Okay? The fact is, somebody
had to take China on. My life would be a lot
easier if I didn’t take China on. But I like doing it
because I have to do it. And we’re getting
great results. China has had the worst
year they’ve had in 27 years. And a lot of people are
saying the worst year they’ve had in 54 years. Okay? And frankly, I don’t want
that to happen, but it does put us in a good
negotiating position, doesn’t it? And China wants to make
a deal, and that’s good. But they have to make a
deal that’s fair to us. It can’t be a deal
that’s not fair to us. And you should be happy
that I’m fighting this and I’m fighting this battle,
because somebody had to do it. We couldn’t let this go –
I don’t even think it’s sustainable to let go
on what was happening. They were stealing all
of our intellectual property ideas. The theft was incredible. They call it “intellectual
property theft.” And they value it at
$300 billion a year. Who knows how
they value it? I know how to value
dollars; I don’t know how to value intellectual
property theft. But they have experts that
say it’s at least $300 billion a year,
where they steal it. Somebody had to do
something with China. Obama should have done it. Bush should have done it. Clinton should
have done it. They all should
have done it. Nobody did it;
I’m doing it. So what do you say? “Oh, my trade deals
are causing them.” My trade deals aren’t
causing a problem. This is something
that had to be done. The only difference
is I’m doing it. I could be sitting here
right now with a stock market that would be up
10,000 points higher if I didn’t want to do it. But I think we have no
choice but to do it. And a lot of people that
really know, people that love our country, they’re
saying, “Thank you very much for taking it on.” And we’re winning because
they’re having the worst year they’ve
had in decades. And it’s only
going to get worse. China has lost 2 million
jobs in the last month and a half because they’re
moving – the people, the companies are moving to
non-tariffed countries. They’ve lost over 2
million jobs in a very short period of time. They’re going to
lose a lot more jobs. And if I didn’t help
certain companies – there are American companies
like Apple – for a very short period of time, I
may help them, only until they do what they have to
do, which is probably move from China. Because this would
be a very short term. If I didn’t help them,
they would – I mean, they would be – they would
have a big problem. Here’s the thing: Somebody
had to take on what China was doing to the United
States economically. We’re winning big. I took it on. And it should have
been done by previous Presidents, but
I took it on. And I’m happy to do it
because it had to be done. And the smart people say,
“Thank you very much.” And the dumb people
have no idea. And then you have the
political people, and they go with the wind. But they all know – even
Senator Schumer said, “Wow, Trump is doing a
great job with China.” I couldn’t believe that. But Schumer thinks I’m
doing the right thing. And he’s doing the right
thing by saying it because he knows that China was
a big economic threat. And they were taking all
of that money that they were making from us, and
they were building planes and ships and lots
of other things. And we can’t
let that happen. The Press: Mr. President,
on China, there is a new study out of Australia
that suggests with the current Chinese military
posture in the South China Sea, Indo-Pacific region,
it could wipe out most U.S. bases within a
number of hours. Is that something that
keeps you up at night? President Trump: Well,
nothing keeps me up at night. I’ll tell you, we could
wipe out anything we – we have the most
powerful in the world. And when I came in two and
a half years ago, we were in a very bad position. Now we’re in a very
strong position. We got $700 billion and
$716 billion and then $738 billion. We have the strongest
military in the world right now. And we’re getting very
close to finishing that whole rebuilding. We’ve rebuilt
the military. Right now, there’s nobody
that’s even close to us, militarily. Not even close. The Press: So it doesn’t
concern you at all that the Chinese military –
President Trump: No, because they’d pay a price
that they wouldn’t want to pay. The Press: Is John
Sullivan your choice for U.S. ambassador (inaudible)? President Trump: He’s
somebody that’s being put up and respected
very much. To Russia? The Press: Yes, sir. President Trump: Yeah. Very respected. The Press: So,
he’s your pick? Or you’re still –
President Trump: Well, I know that Mike Pompeo
likes him very much. And he’s very respected. He could very well be. Yeah. The Press: Okay. Thanks. The Press: What about
Huawei, Mr. President? Do you think partners,
like Romania here, should look into the business of
Huawei in order to make a good decision whether – President Trump:
They’re doing that. Romania is doing that. The Press: Mr. President,
Afghanistan again. The Taliban are
talking to the U.S. but they’re not talking
to the Afghan government. If the U.S. were to draw
down and the Taliban went on the offensive,
would the U.S. come and rescue, say,
the Afghan government? President Trump: Well, the
Taliban does not respect the government, the
Afghan government. They have no respect for
the Afghan government. And I understand
that and I know that. And they haven’t been
exactly getting along for a long period of time. But we’ve been a
peacekeeper there, in a way, for 19 years. And at a certain point,
you have to say, “That’s long enough.” I go to Walter Reed and I
see young men that step on a bomb and they lose their
legs, they lose their arms, and in some case,
they lose both and their face on top of it. And they’re living. And again, we could win
that, but I don’t want to do what we would
have to do to win it. And I think most people
agree with me on that. The Press: Would you
commit to protecting the Afghan government,
should they? President Trump: Right
now, what we’re doing is we’re negotiating with
the government and we’re negotiating with the
Taliban, and we’ll see what happens from it,
what’s coming from it. I will say this: The
Taliban would like to stop fighting us. They would like to
stop fighting us. They’ve lost a lot. But we’ll see
what happens. And, remember,
it’s a tough place. The Soviet Union became
Russia because of Afghanistan. That’s what happened. Very simple. They became Russia
because of Afghanistan. Somebody would say, “Oh,
well, would Russia go in?” I said, “If they
want, let them. I think they tried
that before, however. Didn’t work out too well.” The Press: Can the
Taliban be trusted? Or could we be right
back to where to we were pre-9/11? President Trump:
Nobody can be trusted. Nobody can be trusted. The Press: Are you worried
that we couldn’t be back to where we were pre-9/11? President Trump: In my
world – in this world, I think nobody
can be trusted. The Press: But could we
be back to where we were pre-9/11 with the Taliban
in complete and total control of Afghanistan? President Trump: Well,
that’s what we have to watch. And we’ll always
have intelligence, and we’ll always have
somebody there. But you can say that about
a lot of places, Jon. You know, doesn’t have
to be that sector. But that does seem to be
the Harvard University of terrorism. Okay? It seems to be. And we’ll always
have somebody there. And if the Taliban were –
were really right in what they’re saying, they would
stop that from happening. Because they could stop
that from happening very easily. Okay? So, we’ll see. The Press: The crisis
between India and Pakistan – President Trump:
It’s a big deal. The Press: – and I know
you’ve had some number of discussions – is
that solvable? President Trump: Well,
they’ve been having this – these talks for hundreds
of years, even under different names. But this is –
but it’s Kashmir. And Kashmir is a very
complicated place. You have the Hindus and
you have the Muslims, and I wouldn’t say they
get along so great. And that’s what
you have right now. And you have millions of
people that want to be ruled by others, and
maybe on both sides. And you have two countries
that haven’t gotten along well for a long time. And, frankly, it’s a very
explosive situation. I spoke to Prime
Minister Khan. I spoke with, yesterday,
also, Prime Minster Modi. They’re both
friends of mine. They’re great people. They’re great people. And they love
their countries. And they’re in a very
tough situation. Kashmir is a very
tough situation. And, you know, we’re
talking about – this has been going on for
decades and decades. Shooting. I don’t mean shooting like
shooting a rifle, I mean like major shooting of
howitzers, of – you know, of heavy arms. And it’s been going on for
a long period of time. But I get along really
well with both of them. As you know, Prime
Minister Khan was here just recently. And I was with – I’m
going to be with Prime Minister Modi. I’ll be with him over
the weekend in France. So, you know, I think
we’re helping the situation. But there’s tremendous
problems between those two countries, as you know. And I will do the best
I can to mediate or do something. Great relationship with
both of them, but they are not exactly friends
at this moment. Complicated situation. A lot has to do
with religion. Religion is a
complicated subject. The Press: On Israel,
Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, yesterday, said that the
United States should rethink its policy of aid
toward Israel after she and Congresswomen Tlaib
were denied entry. Congresswomen Tlaib was
later allowed to come in, but she decided not to. Should there be
any change in U.S. aid to Israel? President Trump: No. And you should see the
horrible things that Tlaib has said about Israel,
and “AOC plus three.” That’s what I call it. “AOC” – just take
“AOC plus three.” And you should see the
things that the four of them have said about
Israel over the last couple of years. I mean, Omar is a disaster
for Jewish people. I can’t imagine, if she
has any Jewish people in her district, that they
could possibly vote for her. But what Omar has said,
what Tlaib has said. And then, yesterday, I
noticed for the first time, Tlaib
with the tears. All of a sudden, she
starts with tears. Tears. And I don’t buy it. I don’t buy it. I don’t buy it for a
second because I’ve seen her in a very vicious mood
at campaign rallies – my campaign rallies – before
she was a congresswoman. I said, “Who is that?” And I saw a woman that was
violent and vicious and out of control. And all of a sudden, I see
this person who’s crying because she can’t
see her grandmother. She can see her
grandmother. They have her permission
to see her grandmother, but she grandstanded and
she didn’t want to do it. So, that’s a
decision of Israel. That’s not – a lot of
people are saying that was my decision. That’s a decision
of – of Israel. They can let them in if
they want, but I don’t think they want to. When you read the things
that they’ve said about Israel – how bad. And if you look at their
itinerary before they found out – you take a
look at their itinerary, that was all going to be
a propaganda tour against Israel. So, I don’t blame Israel
for doing what they did. I have nothing
to do with it. But I don’t blame them
for doing what they did. I think it would’ve been
very bad to let them in, including the four – I’m
talking about all four – but these two that wanted
to get in: Omar and Tlaib. And I think it would be a
very bad thing for Israel, but Israel has to do
what they want to do. But I would not cut
off aid to Israel. And I can’t even believe
that we’re having this conversation. Five years ago, the
concept of even talking about this – even three
years ago – of cutting off aid to Israel because
of two people that hate Israel and hate Jewish
people – I can’t believe we’re even having
this conversation. Where has the
Democratic Party gone? Where have they gone where
they’re defending these two people over the
State of Israel? And I think any Jewish
people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows
either a total lack of knowledge or
great disloyalty. All right? Thank you very
much everybody.

  1. Those unions and NY general attorney Leticia James is suing the feds and Trump Administration for the public charge rule. U.S citizens should get all benefits, not foreigners

  2. The Arabs are Ishmael's children and God said his hand will always be raised against his brothers. The Arabs have ALWAYS fought and WILL always fight and they want to destroy their half brothers Israel.
    We need to pull out and let them fight amongst themselves. IT IS NOT THE JOB OF THE US TO BE THE WORLD POLICE. If the countries around they have a problem with terrorist then let them band together and fight them. We have trained them for decades now, now let them loose.

  3. Thank you sir for protecting the 2nd Ammendment from the Democrats who would gladly use it to disarm the public and sell us to the same globalists that Obama, Bush, and McCain worked for…

  4. We are such uneducated country lacking the most elementary rules of ethics and social grace by asking all kind of stupid domestic questions at the wrong event especially at an international state level between two presidents where all questions suppose to pertain to that meeting. I was watching the Romanian president showing so much class and tolerance towards these fucking amateur journalists which constantly were trying to embarrass Trump with all kind of cheap and ghetto questions. Again I have to hand it to the Romanian president for not buying into the journalist's game but contrary provided gracefully short and sharp answers to let them know what a sad example are for today's press.

  8. After a shooting Democrats always ask, "What are you going to do?!" Well, what do they expect? The police in Dayton showed up and killed him dead as a hammer. Done. El Paso? He immediately surrendered to the first men with guns that he encountered. We will have a fair trial. If he is found guilty we have the death penalty in Texas, and use it. Done. What else can we do? Nothing. We don't need any more gun laws. We need to get rid of the ones we have. We need more people to exercise their rights. We need to recognize our God given, constitutionally guaranteed to keep AND BEAR arms. They are no good at home in the closet or the night stand when something like this happens. Both of these shooters went to places where they knew ordinary people would probably not be carrying guns. This needs to change. We need to eliminate barriers for people to defend themselves. We need to return to the gun culture that once thrived in America. The one that existed BEFORE 1968. Back then nobody would pull any nonsense like this. We need to undo the decades of cultural damage done by the liberals.

  9. How do you keep criminals from getting guns? Put them in prison. How do you keep the mentally ill from getting guns? Put them in a mental institution. If these people are too dangerous to have guns then why would we want them to have knives, hammers, gasoline, or cars? These laws restrict law abiding citizens instead of protecting them. The threat isn't guns. The threat is dangerous people.

  10. The solution to keeping guns out of the hands of convicted murders isn't a background check. It's the death penalty.

  11. If you deem someone safe to release into society then why shouldn't they have the same rights as everyone else?

  12. In 2015 there were an estimated total of 15,696 murders committed in the United States. It is estimated that firearms were used to stop about 2 million crimes. How many more murders would there have been if we couldn't defend ourselves?

  15. I absolutely LOVE listening to our Great President Trump! If people would only listen to him and do what he suggests the world would all be much happier and much more peaceful. I love listening to his simple common sense wisdom. These are clear thinking sharp minded opinions that once were commonly held in our nation but no longer seems to be as strong in our post Christian lunacy.

  16. Add the buying Denmark crazy talk to all of this:
    COVFEFE.

    "โ€œI was down there, and I watched our police and our firemen,
    down on 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center, right after it came
    down."

    Trump Said Revolutionary War Troops 'Took Over the Airports' during his Fourth of July โ€œSalute to America" speech.

    โ€œI always wanted to get the
    Purple Heart. This was much easier.โ€ .

    …Mr Apple…. Dayton is Toledo… โ€œAlcaidaโ€ …

    โ€œI mean, had Andrew Jackson been a little later
    you wouldnโ€™t have had the Civil War. He was a very tough person, but he
    had a big heart. He was really angry that he saw what was happening with
    regard to the Civil War. He said, โ€˜Thereโ€™s no reason for this.โ€™ (Andrew
    Jackson DIED 20 years BEFORE our Civil War) โ€œDidnโ€™t you guys burn
    down the White House?โ€ Referring to Canada that didn't even exist in
    1812…..
    โ€œGreat president. (Abraham Lincoln) Most people donโ€™t even
    know he was a Republican. Does anyone know? Lot of people donโ€™t know
    thatโ€…..
    'Really Good Speller' ….โ€œTwo Corinthians, right?"….

    FFS Trump is a GOD DAMN EMBARRASSING MORON.

You promised that you will finish all terorism.my brother and his wife got killd in this party . Now his 3 kids are alone over there can you help them ? Can you give them a little happiness??

  18. You don't mess with our Constitution. Period! The people who designed and slaved over that document knew real tyranny, bloodshed, the price of war, being shutdown when speaking out, etc…. If you destroy even one amendment you set a legal precedent to dismantle every singleย amendment in itย and before you know it we have no more constitution. When it comes to this document there will be NO NEGOTIATION!

  20. Thank You President Trump for your work at making the country prosper again. Pres Trump is right, any Jewish Democrats that vote for the current Democrat party, is either ill informed or uninformed, to the hatred of Israel, from those two congress women, Omar and Tlaib, who are the voice of the Democrat Party.

  24. So i wonder what goes thru the mind of other presidents watching all the media ask questions to POTUS instead of them. Bet they thinking my God im glad its him and not me. Lol

  25. I love how the president does these meetings after he meets with leaders, BUT Why the press has no ability to asks questions regarding the meetings seems so disrespectful to visiting presidence. I am sure it has to do with the fact that they are ignorant about all things in the countries visiting and are to lazy to do basic research. Trump should not take questions during these platforms until media can learn how to behave.

  26. President Trump PLEASE get us Americans OUT of Syria & Afghanistan completely! You know for a fact that it was CIA not Assad who was responsible for the last 2 chorine chemical attracts on his people! Americans can no longer be fooled by false news/facts; we are now Aware! No more war! Leave Assad alone!

So we have the greatest economy in US history, the economy is in fantastic shape, best ever, record-breaking unemployment numbers, consumer confidence is at an all-time high like no one could have predicted – and the Federal Reserve is a bunch of idiots who don't know what they are doing? Got it.

  39. Donal Trump is never a good person. If there were a good man who would do right justice, he would have said that he would not kill anyone. The way Muslims are dying uniquely in Kashmir.India. Donal Trump does not watch TV what happens in the country. There will be no one to eternity. We practice Islam. I don't care for anyone. Now in all countries.

  40. What about those visa Mr. Trump? ๐Ÿ™‚ We basically sold off everything we had in this country, our natural gas reserves included, do we not deserve the visas?

  41. Soetoro was a Sad-Sack.
    I'm Sorry.
    I take it back.
    He was an NWO-4Th Reich Agent, PURPOSELY ruining America. 70K Businesses LEFT America to make it in other countries BC of:
    -Over Regulation
    -Overly Taxed
    I'm listening to the History of Rome.
    The Senators and the Caesaes, WHEN THEY WANTED TO, used the same FACTORS as Dr. Ben Carson LISTED last month in the Trump Cabinet Meeting, to REVITALIZE the Economy:
    -Reinvest in BLIGHTED Communities
    -Deregulation
    IT'S SEEMS that the Senators of TODAY are PRETTY much the same A-holes of 2000 yrs. ago in Rome.
    It's NOT like our Senators are STUPID.
    Especially the Democratic Ones.
    THEY KNOW THEY SHOULD'VE BEEN INVESTING in the LOWER CLASS Communities, but like the Historian describes, the Senators PURPOSELY KEPT THE PEOPLE IN MISERABLE CONDITIONS AND BROUGHT IN FOREIGNERS TO KEEP THEM BUSY FIGHTING BC OF CLASHING ANTITHETICAL CULTURES (SHARIA VERSUS THE CONSTITUTION) AND OVERWORKED THEM SO AS TO MAKE THEM TOO TIRED TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT THEY WERE GETTING FLEECED.

  42. Mercedes cars are most expensive cars, richest US people are buying these cars because of Mercedes high quality products, and I beleive Trump owns some of these cars. So even if US add more taxes on Mercedes imports rich people will keep buying them. For Japanese and other european cars it's another story. So be careful with Germany.
