President Trump Signs the U.S. – Japan Trade Agreement & U.S. – Japan Digital Trade Agreement

The President: Well, thank
you very much everybody. I want to start by wishing
my very good friend, Prime Minister Abe of Japan,
a very happy birthday. He’s 39 years old today. (laughter) So please
extend my wishes to the Prime Minister. He’s a great gentleman and
we have had tremendous success. As you know, in addition
to what we’re talking about today, they’re
building — Japan — many car plants in the United
States, which they weren’t doing for a long time. And they’re building in
Michigan, Ohio, lots of different states. And we just appreciate
it very much. Been a tremendous
investment. But we’re here to talk
about a little bit of a different purchase, and
that’s good as far as we’re concerned. And I want to thank
you very much. Very much. Thank you. (applause) So we’re
gathered here today at the White House this afternoon
to discuss a very strong and groundbreaking
achievement for the United States and Japan: the
signing of the new U.S.-Japan Trade Agreement
and the U.S.-Japan Digital Trade Agreement. Digital is becoming a very
big factor in the world. These two deals represent
a tremendous victory for both of our nations. They will create countless
jobs, expand investment and commerce, reduce
our trade deficit very substantially, promote
fairness and reciprocity, and unlock the vast
opportunities for growth. In the United States,
these deals are a game changer for our farmers
and our ranchers — we love our farmers and we
love our ranchers; we’ve been working very hard on
this — providing them with significantly
enhanced access to a critical foreign market. In a moment, I’ll be
really honoring a lot of the folks in the room that
are here with us from farm country, ranch country. And we’re going to be
witnessing a historic signing by Ambassador
Robert Lighthizer and Ambassador from Japan —
a long trip, but you just got here —
Sugiyama of Japan. And we’re grateful to both
of you for the outstanding job you’ve done and all
of the people that were involved with both of
you, your staffs and your representatives. Thank you both very much. Bob, thank you. Thank you very much. It’s a lot of work. We’re also delighted
that Secretary of Transportation
Elaine Chao is here. Where is Elaine? (laughter)
Where is Elaine? Hi, Elaine. Secretary Chao: Sir. The President: Great. She’s busy. (laughter) Doing
a fantastic job. Thank you — Secretary
Chao: Thank you, sir. The President: —
very much, honey. Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Stephen Censky is here. Where is Stephen? Deputy Secretary
Censky: Right here. The President: Stephen? Hi, Stephen. Deputy Secretary Censky:
Good you see you. The President: Great job. Thank you very much. Spoke to Sonny last night. We’re doing well. A very great gentleman, a
very popular man too, in the world and especially
his wonderful state, Steve Daines. Steve, I saw
you back there. (applause) Hi, Steve. Hi, Steve. I also should — I saw
your poll numbers. You are strong. (laughter) You’re
doing good. And that’s a good decision
by the voters, I can tell you. Thanks, Steve. Representatives Jodey
Arrington and Kevin Hern. And thank you, fellas,
for being here. As well as, North Dakota
Governor Doug Burgum. Doug, thank you. Thank you. Participant: Over there. The President: Thank you. Doug? Where’s Doug? Good, Doug. Good job. Say hello to your wife. Governor Burgum: I will. The President: North
Carolina Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest. Hi, Dan. Hi. We just approved that last
amount of money for the hurricane. Lieutenant Governor
Forest: Thank you. The President: You know
about that, right? Lieutenant Governor
Forest: Yes, Mr. President. Thank you. The President: Iowa Lieutenant Governor Adam Gregg. Adam, great job. Lieutenant Governor Gregg:
Thank you, Mr. President. The President: Great job. And many other state
and local officials. We have some tremendously
respected people here — political people. I want to extend a special
welcome to all of the leaders here today
representing American farmers and ranchers
benefitting from this deal — this is a tremendously
important deal and a very big deal — including
those from our beef, pork, poultry, wheat, dairy,
and corn associations. I would particularly
like to recognize Zippy. Zippy Duvall. He’s been with us
from the beginning. Zippy? Zippy? Mr. Duvall: Hey,
Mr. President. The President:
Where’s my Zippy? Hi. Very good. Thank you for being here. Mr. Duvall: Thank you. The President: Zippy is
always — he’s always — he’s always here trying to
make good deals for your folks, right? Mr. Duvall: Yes, sir. The President: He’s the
President and CEO of the American Farm
Bureau Federation. And we’re doing
really well. I — in fact, we’re doing
a deal with — a big deal with Japan. But, you know, China is
big — buying again. You see that China
is buying very big. Mr. Duvall: We see
that, Mr. President. The President: A lot of
people don’t like to talk about that, but China is
in the market buying very big -agricultural. We’re also joined by
several senior leaders from our nation’s top
technology companies, including Chris
Padilla of IBM. Hi, Chris. How are you? How’s IBM doing? Mr. Padilla: Doing
very well, sir. The President: Very good. You have a lot to do with
farming, too, I know, right? Mr. Padilla: We do. The President: With all of
those programs that you do. Smart farming. Very smart farming. Peggy Johnson
of Microsoft. Peggy, thank you very
much for being here. Please say hello, too. And Craig Albright
of Business Software Alliance. Thank you very
much, Craig. We appreciate it. We do appreciate your
support, and it really is now smart farming. In fact, going to MIT
doesn’t hurt either, right? When you’re a
farmer nowadays. It’s incredible
what they do. From day one, my
administration has fought tirelessly to achieve a
level playing field for the American worker. In addition to the
agreements we’re signing with Japan today, we
reached a tremendous agreement with Mexico and
Canada to replace NAFTA with the new USMCA. And hopefully that’ll
get done in the not-too-distant future. Everybody wants it. Manufacturers want it,
farmers want it, even unions want it. People want it. And that’s a great deal
for all of the countries, but in particular, it’s a
great deal for us and our workers. We’re also completely
renegotiating — and now we’ve completed that
and signed it — the U.S.-Korea Trade Agreement
to substantially expanding American auto exports. It’s made a tremendous
difference. That was a terrible
agreement, and we renegotiated it and it’s
now a very good agreement for the United States. It was not a good
agreement for the United States at all. Today’s signing of the
U.S.-Japan Trade Agreement and U.S.-Japan Digital
Trade Agreement builds on these incredible successes
to the benefit of both of our nations. And I have to say that,
while we’re here, and because of the fact that
we’re talking about agriculture, ethanol, and
the farmers of Nebraska and Iowa and all of the
different places that wanted it, we’ve
come to an agreement. And it’s going to be, I
guess, about getting close to 16 billion barrels. Right? Something like that. That’s a lot. Lieutenant Governor Gregg:
Sixteen billion gallons. The President:
That’s a lot. Say it again. Lieutenant Governor Gregg:
Sixteen billion gallons. The President:
That’s a lot. (laughter) That’s
a lot of gallons. So I think they — so they
should like me out in Iowa and all of the
different places, huh? Lieutenant Governor Gregg:
Very appreciative of your actions, sir. The President: I think so. And also, and very
importantly, we’ve taken in tremendous amounts
of money in the form of tariffs from China. China has eaten the cost
of those tariffs because they’ve devalued their
currency and they’ve also pumped a lot of money
into their system. Deflation is — we
have no inflation. If anything, it’s going
below the number so, therefore, we’re entitled
to an interest rate cut. I hope the Fed does that
because we’d be like a rocket ship. And we’re already the
strongest economy in the world and doing better
than just about any economy in the world. And a lot of people are
asking us the secret. But we’d like to see an
interest rate cut — a very substantial one. And whatever else
they want to do. But we would be
a rocket ship. And if you look at from
the time I got elected — if you go to November 9th,
the day after the election — we’re up close to 60
percent in the market, which is numbers that are
pretty much unheard of because it’s a fairly
short period of time. Our country is
doing really well. But we are taking care of
our farmers out of the billions and billions of
dollars that we’ve gotten. You know about
that Zippy, right? Mr. Duvall: Yes, sir. The President: So we’re
giving $12 billion from the year before
— $12 billion. And that’s
compliments of China. Thank you very much. And $16 billion
this last year. And then we’ll see what
happens next year. Maybe by that time
it’s straightened out. But the farmers and
ranchers were targeted, to put it mildly, by China. And it’s nice that
they’re coming back. And, by the way, China is
also coming here on — their representatives —
they’re coming on Thursday and Friday,
Bob, I believe. And so you’ll start
some negotiations. And the relationship
is very good. As to whether or not we
make a deal, I don’t know. But there’s certainly
a good possibility. But the relationship
is a very good one. But we’ve taken in
billions of dollars. And of those many, many
more billions, we’re giving $16 billion to our
farmers because I asked Sonny Perdue — I said,
“Sonny, what was the amount of money that
— last year, that the farmers were hurt?” He said, “Let me get back
to you.” He got back to me. The number was
$16 billion. I said, “That’s okay. We’re going to take $16
billion out of the tariffs and we’re going to give it
to the American farmer.” And I think they
appreciated that. It never gets reported by
the “fake news,” as I say. But it never
gets reported. Never. I don’t know why. They don’t want to do it. And then, Zippy, as you
know, we took $12 billion from the year before. And that also came from
large amounts of tariff and — tariffs. And people were actually
saying — I read a report today, I believe in the
Washington Times, where they talked about the
tremendous amount of money that has actually
come in from tariffs. And it’s been a number
that we’ve never even seen before in this country. We’ve had a tremendous
amount of money coming in. And some of the Republican
senators — and it’s not a bad idea — said, “Why
don’t we give it?” Because we have a lot of
money left over after taking care of
our farmers. And what we’re doing is
we’re bringing it right up to the level that the
farmers were targeted by. So, in theory, they should
be — it should be, in its own way, a level
playing field. The amazing thing about
the farmer — and I’ve been with so many — they
don’t even want that, right? Mr. Duvall: That’s right. The President: They just
want a level playing field. They don’t even
want $16 billion. I think almost anybody
else — Larry Kudlow — wants $16 billion. The farmer
doesn’t want it. They want a level
playing field. They want to play the
game the way it should be played. And I think we’re probably
pretty close to doing that too. But in the meantime, no
other President would get $16 billion and $12
billion for the American farmer or rancher —
that I can tell you. So — Mr. Duvall:
Thank you. The President: — maybe
it was your great work. I don’t know. Right? Mr. Duvall: Your
work, Mr. President. The President:
It was all of us. Everybody standing
up here, frankly. Under the terms of the
agreement, today Japan has committed to dramatically
increase market access to American food and
agricultural exports. It’s a very
dramatic number. It’s one of the larger
trade deals ever signed. As a result, 126 million
Japanese consumers will have greater access to
high-quality American almonds, blueberries,
corn, wine, poultry, and egg products, beef, pork,
wheat, and so much more. Anything else you
folks can think of? Do you want to
shout it out? Anything? Steve? Anybody? No? Senator Daines: Beef. The President: Beef. Did I not say that? Participant: Ethanol. The President: Ethanol. (Laughs.) Yes. (laughter) That’s an
interes- — let me think about that one. Once this agreement enters
into force, Japanese tariffs will be completely
eliminated, so that Japan will not be charging us,
as they have, for many, many years — and that’s
— we appreciate it — and substantially reduced over
90 percent of the United States agricultural
exports. That’s a big thing because
we’re getting charged a lot of tariffs. And it’s okay for us to
charge, but we can’t have other countries charge. Our farmers, ranchers, and
growers will now be able to compete fairly in Japan
against major competitors worldwide. In addition to these
agricultural agreements, the extraordinary digital
agreement that we’re signing — so, that
digital agreement is a very big deal in its own
right — we’re signing today, sets standards on
the $40 billion in digital trade between the United
States and Japan. And we just won a big —
talking about digital and talking about the Internet
— but we just won the big case, as you know. And you people would
really know, right? But that was a big case
that we won on net neutrality. Just won it. And that’s a — going to
receive — maybe they won’t even appeal it,
because it’s a very hard case to appeal, but it was
a tremendous victory in terms of speed and in
terms of investment on the Internet. This deal is remarkable in
that it will ensure that Americans have a level
playing field in trading cutting-edge products and
services, such as videos, music, e-books,
and software. These comprehensive
provisions meet the gold standard of digital trade
rules that were set in the landmark USMCA. And, again, we hope that’s
going to get voted on. We hope that Nancy Pelosi
gets it voted on because everyone wants it, and
she’ll have to make her own decision. Let her make her
own decision. But I can tell you the
American public is tired of Do-Nothing. And we are doing a lot,
and the Democrats are doing nothing. Thriving commerce between
the United States and Japan is essential to
advancing opportunity and prosperity for our people. The United States and
Japan are the world’s largest and
third-largest economies. Together, our nations
comprise nearly one-third of the entire globe’s GDP. Japan is America’s
third-largest agricultural export market, and this
makes it even bigger. And America is Japan’s
foreign investor, and that’s what I was talking
about — all of the plants that are going up
all over the country. I said to Prime Minister
Abe: “Please, we need auto plants.” And I said that
right at the beginning when I first met with him,
and immediately liked him a lot. And they’ve
really produced. They’re doing a lot of
plants, not just auto. Many, many — many, many
plants and factories are being built in the United
States by Japan and Japanese companies. These agreements will
ensure that our economic partnership flourishes
brighter than ever before. I think we’re probably at
a stage with Japan where I don’t think our
relationship has ever been stronger or better
than it is right now. In the months ahead,
our teams will continue negotiations on remaining
areas of interest to achieve a final and very
comprehensive agreement. We’re working on
that right now. There’s some big, big
things that we’re working on. And I’d like now to
invite Ambassador Robert Lighthizer to provide
further details on these historic deals. And I want to thank
you very much. I want to thank everybody
in the room for being here. And thank you very much to
the media for being here too. Thank you. Please, Robert. (applause) Ambassador
Lighthizer: Well, thank you very much,
Mr. President. Thank you for helping us
get this agreement across the finish line. But more importantly,
thank you for reorienting trade policy in the United
States in the direction of America’s workers,
farmers, and ranchers. For too long, we had lost
our way, quite frankly. And during the last almost
three years, you’ve brought us back. And I’m very grateful for
that, and I’m grateful to have been a part of it. I want to thank, if I can,
a few people on my team. We had a huge
group involved. Jeff Gerrish and Greg
Doud, my — two of my deputies; Michael Beeman;
Sharon Bomer Lauritsen. And then there are lots of
other people who gets a lot of credit
for doing this. Let me just quickly
make the point that the President has already
made: This is a very big trade deal. This is about 55 billion
dollars’ worth of trade. With this, we’ll have more
than 95 percent of the GDP that would have
been in TPP. So it’s very
important for farmers. It’s also important
for digital trade. Japan is the biggest
market for United States in beef, pork, wheat. And it’s a substantial
market in a variety of other things, including
potatoes, which weren’t mentioned, and a lot
of the nuts and other products. It also affects
wine and the like. So we see — we think
we’ll have substantial additional sales as
a result of this. So, thank you again,
Mr. President. It’s a pleasure — it’s
an honor for me to be the person who gets
to sign this. I would like now to turn
it over to — the podium over to Ambassador
Sugiyama, who is not only the Ambassador from Japan
to the United States, but also was very active in
actually getting this deal across the finish line. So thank you very much. (applause) Ambassador
Sugiyama: Well, frankly speaking, I must tell
you that I feel really daunting, and I feel
very much tense. And I couldn’t feel more
honored to be here in this signing ceremony place
in the White House, Mr. President. In front of this top
leadership, no ambassador couldn’t feel as
I just told you. Mr. President, Ambassador
Lighthizer, and members of Congress, and members of
Cabinet, and governors, distinguished guests, and
ladies and gentlemen: Actually, I couldn’t
forget the time when Mr. President and my Prime
Minister Abe declared, just about one month and
— one year and one month ago, something in the
sideline of UNGA last year, to declare that we
should, sooner than later, kick off a bilateral
trade agreement. That was 13 months
ago or something. And with some reasons, I
think it took (inaudible) something like six months
to wrap things up by Mr. President and my Prime
Minister in New York on the 25th of last month to
declare that, politically, it was all done. It was only remaining, you
know, legal (inaudible), technical sort of things. And then, my people and
Bob Lighthizer’s people, and your people and
everybody, spent 24 hours, day and night, to finalize
everything so that we are able to have, today,
for the formal signing ceremony day, to sign up
the (inaudible) trade agreement, as well, as
Mr. President rightly mentioned, important thing
is plus digital trade agreement, as well as
other related, attached document (inaudible). Actually, I had to sign 16
or 18 places prior to this — (laughter) — with my
very beautiful fountain pen. Actually, Mr. President
was kind enough to give me a really, really memorable
pen to sign with — with his really good
signatures. So, to me, as Bob
Lighthizer was kind enough to mention that, from the
stretch I was in, in the (inaudible), and then Bob
Lighthizer and my Minister Motegi — their team and
our team seemed to be sometimes very much — you
know, tense discussions, something which is quite
not abnormal, because after all, this
is a trade deal. But, basically, based upon
the fundamental friendship and trust relations
between the two leaders, Mr. President and my Prime
Minister Shinzo Abe. And plus, Ambassador
Lighthizer and his opposite number,
Minister Motegi, and us. So we have had a really
serious and fierce sometimes debates, which
is really natural. But really, a (inaudible)
was something to go to try to target the same target
to gain, for both of us, a beneficial outcome, which
is something that I feel very much honored to
sign this afternoon. So — and then, as
Mr. President and Lighthizer — Ambassador
Lighthizer mentioned, we have — well,
Mr. President, unfortunately, we are
outnumbered by the people you have here —
(laughter) — because you are here in the States. We are in Washington. But nonetheless, we have
three gentlemen from Japan Commerce Association of
Washington, D.C.: Tetsuo Iguchi, Toshiba
Corporation. Here they are. And then, two Mitsubishi
Corporation: Go Eguchi and Akihiko Nakazono. And these are the guys who
are kind enough to join us. As I told you, repeatedly,
we are unfortunately slightly outnumbered —
(laughter) — but they are kind enough to come over
to see this signing ceremony because of
the importance for the Japanese business and
Japanese market and all Japan. Thank you, Mr. President. And thank you everybody. (applause) Ambassador
Lighthizer: I’m not doing this until you tell me. The President: Go ahead. (laughter) I do want to
pay compliments, though. Look at these five
gentlemen right there. Right there. That’s central casting. They are very
tough negotiators. (laughter) Tough
negotiators. Good. Congratulations. (The agreements are
signed.) (applause) Well, that’s a big one. That’s a very big one. And I’d like to just
introduce, if I might, some of the folks here. As you know, Ambassador
Gerrish and Doud have been introduced. And great job, fellas. But Bruce Kettler,
Director of the Indiana State Department
of Agriculture. Eddie Settle, Commissioner
— Chairman of the Wilkes County [Board of
Commissioners], North Carolina. And that’s a lot
of territory. That’s great stuff. Where are you? Good. Congratulations. Tony Kurtz, State
Representative, Vice Chair of the Wisconsin Assembly
Committee on Agriculture. Good job. Good job, Tony. Go back and
say you did it. You’re going to be — you
can run for anything, right? Barbara Glann, National
Association of State Department of Agriculture. Barbara, congratulations. Ben Scholz, National
Association of Wheat Growers. It’s a big — that’s
a big deal, Ben. Mr. Scholz: (Inaudible)
we’re ready to sell wheat. The President:
They’re ready. They’re ready to buy
it, I’ll tell you. They’re going to
buy a lot of wheat. Jennifer Houston, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. Ms. Houston:
Mr. President. The President: Good. I thought that was you. I could tell with the hat. (laughter) Kevin Ross,
National Corn Growers Association. Congratulations. Mr. Ross: Thank
you, Mr. President. The President:
Fantastic job. Randy Mooney, National
Milk Producers Federation. Mr. Mooney: Back
here, Mr. President. The President: Great job. Good, Randy. David Herring, National
Pork Producers Council. And, David, you are a very
big beneficiary to things that are going on, but the
pork is off the charts — the numbers. Aren’t they? It’s going good. Mr. Herring: This is
wonderful news for our pork producers
in this country. The President: Yeah. Mr. Herring: Japan has
been our number one value market for many years. And it’s just
great momentum. It creates tremendous
opportunity in rural America. The President: And China
is a big buyer right now, right? Mr. Herring: Pork is
starting to move to China. The President: Yep. I know. China — they’re going
to be a very big buyer. It’s already happened. Kody Carson —
thank you very much. Mr. Herring: Thank you. The President: Kody
Carson, National Sorghum Producers. Where is Kody? Great. Good job. Good job. Are you happy
about this one? Mr. Carson: Extremely
(inaudible). The President: You
said the right thing. I got to be careful. (laughter) Mr. Carson:
With China and Japan in the market — The
President: Oh, I know that. It’s great. Mr. Carson: (Inaudible.)
The President: This is going to be phenomenal. This — Julie Anna Potts,
North American Meat institute. Thank you. Thank you,
Julie, very much. Ms. Potts: Thank you. Darren Armstrong, U.S. Grains Council. Hi, Darren. Mr. Armstorng: Thank
you, Mr. President. It’s a great deal. The President:
Thank you very much. Yeah, it’s great. Thank you very much. Hobey Bauhan, Virginia
Poultry Federation. Hobey, thank
you very much. MR. BAUHAN: Thank
you, Mr. President. The President: Tom
Nassif, Western Growers Association. Mr. Nassif: Right
here, Mr. President. The President: Good. Thank you, Tom. Mr. Nassif: We’re going
to bring fresh produce. The President: You
better believe it. Thank you. Congratulations. Say hello to everybody. Tom Stenzel, United Fresh
Produce Association. MR. STENZEL: Yes, sir. Thank you. The President: Tom,
thank you very much. Saw you back there. Vince Peterson, U.S. Wheat Associates. Vince? MR. PETERSON: Sir,
thank you very much. The President: Thank you
very — congratulations. It’s going to be
a lot of wheat. MR. PETERSON:
A lot of wheat. The President: A lot of
wheat going to Japan. And Fred Wacker, Montana
Stockgrowers Association. Mr. Wacker: Right
here, Mr. President. The President: Fantastic. Thank you very much. Mr. Wacker: Thank
you so very much. The President: Fantastic
job you’ve all done. And again, my friend. Senator Daines: Thank you. The President:
Great job, Steve. Okay, so we’ve had a
tremendous success. Likewise, we’re having
a lot of successes. We have tremendous
success at the border. I want to thank Mexico for
what they’ve been doing. You look at the numbers;
they’re tumbling down. This is one on
catch and release. Look at that. See that, fellas? Catch and — would you
say that’s pretty good? I’d say it’s pretty good. I’d say it’s pretty
amazing, Steve, even for your — from your
standpoint, Steve, fellas. That’s some number, huh? Getting down
to almost zero. Look. So it was not doing so
good for a long time. Catch and release. We had no help from the
Do-Nothing Democrats, so we did it with Mexico. We did it with Guatemala. We did it with — I mean,
we did it with some countries that really
stopped — El Salvador; Honduras; and others
— other countries — countries that are signing
safe third agreements, which nobody thought
would be even possible. And the border is
really doing well. And again, Mexico, today
has 27,000 soldiers. Twenty-seven thousand. I want to thank the
President of Mexico, because he’s been great. But the border is
really looking good. The wall is
moving rapidly. Large sections are
being built every day. More contracts are
being given out. We’re — we’re doing it
in about 17 different sections, because it’s
over 450 miles long -the area we have to close up. And it could even hit
500 at some point. And we expect to have
anywhere between 4- and 500 built, hopefully by
the end of next year. It’s going up
very rapidly. It’s a very — it’s
a very powerful wall. It’s got everything
you can have. It was — and the Border
Patrol just left, actually. We were going over
some of the numbers. And we gave them every
single element of the wall that they wanted. We had mountain climbers
come in to climb — do you believe this? We had different samples
put up and we had mountain climbers,
literally, come in. “Which is the hardest
one to climb?” The panel — the steel
panel on top makes it very difficult. It’s called an
anti-climb panel. I never thought I would be
doing this for a living: anti- — (laughter) — we
built an anti-climb panel. Without the panel, they
get across it easy. With the panel, it’s not
so — it’s not easy. So, anti-climb
panel at the top. And the border is
coming along well. The economy is
doing great. We’re doing — as I said
before, we’re the hottest economy in the world. We’re the largest
economy in the world. We’re up $15 trillion, at
least, since the election. Fifteen trillion. And China is down,
probably, 22 or 24 trillion. So I think China might
have caught us if my opponent had gotten in. By now, they would
have caught us. And now it’s going to be
a long time before they catch us, if they
ever catch us. I don’t think anybody
is going to catch us. If we’re smart,
nobody will catch us. So with that being said,
if you have any questions on the trade deal, please. Anything on the trade
deal, specifically? Yeah, please. The Press: Do you have any
predictions about China? Do you expect a whole new
offer or any optimism? The President: Well, they
want to make a deal. They’re down three and a
half million jobs since we started doing what we do. And their supply chain is
really cracked and broken. And they want
to make a deal. Now, they’re coming to see
us on Thursday and Friday. We think there is a chance
that we could do something very substantial. Bob, I think
you think that. We’ll see what happens. But, in the meantime,
we’re taking in billions and billions of dollars of
tariffs every month and we’ve never had this. We never took in 10 cents
from China and we’re taking in billions of
dollars and tens of billions a year. And on October 15th, as
you know, it goes up from — up to 35 — I
guess, it goes to 35. It’s going to — it’s
going to raise fairly substantially. We could always do it
a lot more, but we’ve decided not to. So that’s the story. And I think that they will
— they’re coming to make a deal. We’ll see whether or not a
deal can be made, but it’s got to be a fair deal. Look, we’ve lost $500
billion a year for many, many years on average. If you include
intellectual property theft and all of the other
things that took place, it’s incredible that past
administrations could have allowed it to happen. We’re talking about $500
billion — not million; that’s a lot, too — $500
billion a year, for many years, taken out
of our country. We rebuilt China. They did a great job
and I don’t blame them. I told President Xi, “I
don’t blame you one bit.” I blame the people that
ran this country to allow that to happen. And they understand that. But we don’t let
that happen anymore. So, we’ll see
what happens. We’re going to have a
very important meeting. And they have their
top people coming in. And I have my top
people doing the job. And if I don’t think
they’re doing a good job, I’ll fire them and I’ll go
over and take their place. (laughter) Okay? Yeah, please. The Press: On Hong Kong,
sir, are the Hong Kong protests linked, in your
view, to the China trade negotiations in any way? The President: Well, we’d
like to see a very humane solution to that. I hope that’s
going to happen. And, you know, Hong Kong
is very important as a world hub — not just for
China, but for the world. And you have great
people over there. I see they’re flying
the American flags. They even have signs:
“Make China Great Again.” “Make Hong Kong Great
Again.” (laughter) And I’m saying, “Get those signs.”
But they have, you know, tremendous signage and
tremendous — they have a tremendous spirit
for our country. They have a lot of
American flags, a lot of Trump signs. I’d just like to see a
humane deal be worked out. And I think President Xi
has the ability to do it. I sort of said that I
think if he met — he’s a very convincing man, and I
think if he met with some of the leaders — that
could be one problem, you don’t seem to have a
specific leader of the group. But I really think
they can do something. We just want to see
a humane solution. The Press: Did you tell Xi
Jinping in any way that you would be quiet about
Hong Kong protests during the course of these
negotiations? The President:
No, I didn’t. But I do say that
we are negotiating. If anything happened bad,
I think that would be a very bad for the
negotiation. I think, politically, it
would be very tough maybe for us, and maybe for some
others, and maybe for him. But, no, I think that
they have to do that in a peaceful manner. It’s — now, I will say,
the first time I saw it, if you look — a number
of months ago, I saw 2 million people. I’ve never seen
anything like it. We talk about crowd size. That was serious
crowd size, right? The crowd size is much
smaller now, so maybe that’s saying something. But hopefully they can
work out something that’s amicable. Yes, sir. The Press: Mr. President,
would you accept a partial trade deal with China? There has been some talk
today about whether or not it could be headed
in that direction. The President: Well, it’s
a very good question. I think it’s not what
we prefer at all. They are starting to buy
a lot of our agricultural products. You see that. They’re coming in very
strong on pork, also — very, very strong —
and in particular. But on other products,
that — so, I don’t know if you call that a
“partial.” We don’t have an agreement. My inclination is
to get a big deal. We’ve come this far. We’re doing well. Again, the fact that
they’ve done what they’ve done with their currency
— the devaluation — it really has not
increased prices. And now we’re
talking China. It doesn’t mean that in
all cases that happens; other countries prices
increase, but in the case of China that
hasn’t happened. And they put a lot of
money into their goods. They want to keep
their people working. I understand
that very well. But I think that we’ll
just have to see what happens. I would much
prefer a big deal. And I think that’s what
we’re shooting for. Can something happen? I guess, maybe. Who knows? But I think it’s
probably unlikely. Okay? The Press: Mr. President,
on Syria — on withdrawing forces in Syria —
The President: Yeah. The Press: — why are
you siding with an authoritarian leader and
not our Kurdish allies? The President: Well, I’m
not siding with anybody. We’ve been in Syria
for many years. You know, Syria was
supposed to be a short-term hit — just
a very short-term hit. And we were supposed
to be in and out. That was many,
many years ago. And we only have 50
people in that area. That’s a small sector. And I don’t want those 50
people hurt or killed or anything. I don’t want anything bad
to happen to our people. And I told that to
President Erdogan. I said, “Don’t hurt any of
our — any of our people get hurt, big trouble.”
Now, a couple of things: I think there’s a lot of
pressure on Turkey. They have been fighting
with the PKK for many years. They’re natural enemies. If you read today, a
couple of reports saying that when President Obama
started this whole thing — as you know, it was
started by President Obama — he created a natural
war with Turkey and their long-time enemy, PKK. And they’re still there. And they’re still hating
each other beyond anybody’s belief. But I have told Turkey
that if they do anything outside of what we would
think is humane — to use the word a second time; we
talk about Hong Kong, we talk about this — they
could suffer the wrath of an extremely
decimated economy. And I’ve done it once. I did it with
Pastor Brunson. You remember the
Pastor Brunson? And they wouldn’t give
Pastor Brunson back, and they ended up giving
Pastor Brunson back pretty quickly. Their currency fell at
record levels and lots of other things happened. And it was good. I have a very good
relationship with President Erdogan. I want to see it happen. I will tell you this
though: We defeated ISIS. And when I wanted to —
when we were at 96 and 95 and 97 percent, I sort
of said, “Let the other countries in the area
finish it off.” And I was met with a lot of anger
from some people in our country. I said, “All right. I’ll finish it off.” And
I got together with our generals. I flew to Iraq. I got together. And we did it
very quickly. Far quicker than any
general from here told us we could do it. We have some great
people over there. They did it quickly. And I said to the European
countries, “You’ve got to take your ISIS…” You
know we have 60,000, maybe even 70,000 people — that
includes families, that includes wives of fighters
that were killed. We have many fighters
that were killed in the battles. And we took it. Over 100 percent of the
caliphate, I took over quickly. Nobody else was — it was
a mess when I came to office. And I think most of you
would agree to that. It was a real mess. I took it over. But then I said, “What are
we going to do with these 60- to 70,000 people that
are being held and being guarded and we can’t
release them?” And many fighters also. And I said, “I want them
to go back to Germany, to France, to different
European countries from where they came.” And
I said to the European countries — I said to all
of them, “Take the people back.” And they
said, “No, no, no. We don’t want to do it. We don’t them back.” I
said, “Well, they came from Germany or they
came from France. Take them back.” And
they’re so used to the United States being a
sucker, being a fool — we’re talking about
billions and billions of dollars. You’re talking about life. You’re talking about so
many things, so many elements — and
elements of complexity. Because they’re going to
walk back into Germany. They’re going to go back
into these countries from where they came. So I said, “Take them
back.” And they said, “No.” And then I said
again, “I’m going to give you another 30 days. Take them back.” And they
kept saying, “No.” Maybe they won’t be
saying “no” now. I don’t know. So I told President
Erdogan, “You got to — it’s going to be your
responsibility.” Now, really, who’s responsible
— it’s really Russia, it’s Turkey, it’s Iran,
it’s Iraq, and it’s Syria, and anybody else in
the neighborhood. Okay? We call it the
“neighborhood.” It’s not a friendly neighborhood. But these countries
should do it. Now, ISIS is the sworn
enemy of all of these countries. Many of them they hate far
more than they hate us, and those countries hate
them at the same level as we do. They’re — they’re
terrible, terrible, savage killers. I said, “Take them back.”
But these countries are rich, in most cases. They’re powerful. They’ve got armies. They can do the work. But we’re not bringing
50-, 60-, 70-, or even 10,000 people to
Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. We’re not going to paying
them for the next 50 years, or paying to take
care of them for the next 50 years. So we told Europe — we
did a great service to the world. And we did a great service
to Europe in particular, where so many of these
fighters came from. We said, “Take them
back.” And, you know, unfortunately, like NATO,
they take advantage. NATO, as you know, I got
the Secretary General Stolheim [Stoltenberg]
said — and, I think, very loudly — the Secretary
General of NATO, said that because of what I did,
they have paid over $100 billion more money
toward NATO defense. But that’s still
not enough, okay? It’s still not enough. Not fair. Because United States pays
far too much, relative. And obviously, NATO
affects them more. But, like NATO, like trade
with the European Union, which is a very tough
group to trade with — very, very tough group. Almost as tough as
Japan — not quite. (laughter) But they are a
very tough group to trade with. They take advantage. And I said, “Look,
you take them back. We’re not — we’re
not going to do this. We’re not going to put in
Guantanamo Bay and put them all over our
prisons.” So, right now, we’re at a position where,
if Turkey does anything out of what they should be
doing, we will hit them so hard on the economy. But when you talk about
soldiers — we only had 50 soldiers in the area. I think the area was —
it’s a very small area and — very small area. But we only had 50
soldiers there. I don’t want them to be
in a bad or compromising position. And I will tell you this:
Everybody respects our country again. If we want to go in, if we
have to go back for any reason — because
bad things happen. But we’re 7,000
miles away. These ISIS people —
whatever you want to call them — these people
are right there. They’re right there. They’re touching many of
these countries that I just named. Iran, as an
example, hates ISIS. And ISIS hates Iran. Iraq, you know
all about that. Turkey, Syria — let
them take care of it. Let them take care of it. We want to bring our
troops back home. It’s been many,
many years. It’s been decades,
in many cases. We want to bring our
troops back home. And I got elected on that. If you go back and look at
our speeches, I would say, “We want to bring our
troops back home from these endless wars.” And
we’re like a police force over there. We’re policing. We’re not fighting;
we’re policing. We’re not a police force. We’re the greatest
military force ever assembled because of what
I’ve done over the last three years with $2.5
trillion, Mr. Ambassador, we’ve spent on our
military — $2.5 trillion. But we’re not going
to be there longer. And we’re going to be
watching Turkey and we hope that them and all of
the other countries — or some of the other
countries, including the European Union — goes in
and does whatever they’re supposed to do with these
captured ISIS fighters and families. Okay? The Press: Mr. President,
a number of Republicans, including — including
Nikki Haley and Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell
were very critical of this decision today. Mitch McConnell put out a
statement saying, wish you would recon- — exercise
leadership and reconsider, and suggested not doing so
would be reminiscent of what the Obama
administration would do. Would you respond
to that, sir? The President: Yeah. The Press: And also, did
you – The President: Sure. The Press: Did you consult
with the Joint Chiefs of Staff when you
made this decision? The President: Sure. I consulted
with everybody. I always consult
with everybody. If you remember, about
eight months ago, I talked about doing this. And we kept 2,000 people
there, and then slowly brought them out. But once we captured ISIS,
I didn’t see — I don’t want to stay there
for the next 40 years. It’s not going
to do anything. The end game is
going to be the same. I have great respect for
all of the people that you named. And they have their
opinion, and a lot of people do. And I could also name many
more than you just named of people that totally
are supportive. You see the names coming
out; people are extremely thrilled because they say
it’s time to bring our people back home. We’re not a police force. They’re policing the area. We’re not a police force. The UK was very thrilled
at this decision. As you know, they’re
over there — they have soldiers over there also. And others. But many people agree
with it very strongly. And I understand
both sides of it. I fully understand
both sides of it. But I campaigned on the
fact that I was going to bring our — our soldiers
home, and bring them home as rapidly as possible. I, we, all together, you
— we defeated and took over 100 percent of
the ISIS caliphate. Everybody said that was
going to be an impossible thing to do. I did it, and I did it
quickly because we have a great military now. When I took over our
military, we didn’t have ammunition. I was told by a top
general — maybe the top of them all —
“Sir, I’m sorry. Sir, we don’t have
ammunition.” I said, “I’ll never let another
President have that happen to him or her.” We
didn’t have ammunition. Now, we’ve captured ISIS. We’ve done what
we’ve done. We had 50 soldiers in the
area you’re talking about. And I said, “We want to
bring our soldiers back home. It’s been a long time.”
Again, we were supposed to be in there for a
— just a tiny spot. Like, a 30- to
90-day period. That was many years ago. It’s time. The Press: Mr. President,
the Kurds themselves have lost thousands of fighters
in battling ISIS. The President:
That’s true. And we’ve lost a lot
of fighters, too. The Press: Can you
guarantee their safety? The President: Well,
we’re going to try. If you look at some of the
Kurds, as you know, that was — that’s a natural
enemy of — of Turkey. It’s — you know,
specifically, as I said. I mean, they have
natural enemies. They’ve been fighting each
other for — somebody said, today —
hundreds of years. I mean, one historian said
they’ve been fighting for hundreds of years. We interject ourself into
wars, and we interject ourselves into tribal wars
and revolutions and all of these things that are very
— they’re not the kind of thing that you settle the
way we’d like to see it settled. It just doesn’t — it just
doesn’t work that way. But hopefully, that’ll
all be very strong and strongly done. We’re spending tremendous
amounts of money. I can tell you, the two
countries that are most disappointed that we’re
leaving are China and Russia because they love
that we’re bogged down and just watching and spending
tremendous amounts of money instead of
continuing to build our forces. We have tremendous new
weapons under development now. We have weapons that
nobody can even believe. We’re going to be making
some stops over the next four or five weeks. Some we show, some
we don’t show. But we’ve rebuilt
our nuclear. We’ve renovated and
rebuilt nuclear. We’re building submarines
the likes of which has — they’ve never been even
thought of before, the genius of them. Hopefully and hope to God
we never have to use them. But we are doing
what we have to do. But we’ve been there
for many years. Long — many, many, many
years beyond what we were supposed to be — not
fighting, just there. Just there. And it’s time to
come back home. But I can understand
the other side of it. But if you go by the other
side, that means we should never, ever come home. We should never,
ever come home. And, you know, I have to
sign letters often to parents of young soldiers
that were killed. And it’s the hardest thing
I have to do in this job. I hate it. I hate it. Afghanistan. I signed one the other
day — Iraq, Syria. They get blown
up by mines. They get taken
out by a sniper. And I have to write
letters to people. And we make each
letter different. Each person is different. And we make them personal. But no matter what you
do, it’s devastating. The parents will
never be the same. The families will
never be the same. People are killed. Many people are
still being killed. It’s going to go on that
way for perhaps a long time. And we’re willing to do
what we have to do, but there has to
be an end game. And if you stay, it’s
going to be the same thing. Eventually, you’re
going to have to leave. It’s going to be
the same thing. So, I think what we’re
doing is the right thing. A lot of people
agree with me. A lot of people
agree with me. And again, you go back and
see my speeches, a big part of my speech and
always — when I won what some people consider to be
a surprise election — now I just see a poll that
just came out where I’m up massively with
independent voters. I don’t know if it’s this
or because of the hoax, you know, that’s going on
with Nancy Pelosi and her — her friend,
Adam Schiff. He’s another beauty. He got caught lying
all over the place. He doesn’t know
what to do. He’s a mess. Right now, he’s a mess. And everybody knows it. Just all you have to do is
a little good reporting, you’ll see he’s a total
mess because he got caught. But, you know, we have to
do the right thing for our country, whether it —
whatever it may be. And I just think that’s
the right thing. I respect both opinions. The problem with the other
opinion is: When do we leave? When do we leave? We’re going to
stay there forever? Yeah, Jeff. The Press: Mr. President,
the White House Counsel’s Office is preparing
a letter to — The President: Yeah. The Press: — to Speaker
Pelosi about the impeachment inquiry. What do you hope to
achieve with that letter? The President: Well, first
of all, the impeachment inquiry is a scam. The conversation that I
had with the Ukrainian President Zelensky was a
very good conv- — it was a very cordial, very
good conversation. The mistake they made
— the opponents, the opposition, the Democrats,
the radical Left, deep state, whatever you want
to call them — they came out with a whistleblower
report before they saw the conversation. Had they waited one day,
Nancy Pelosi wouldn’t have made a fool out of
herself, and she would have been able to
say what I said. Because when she saw it,
she said, “This is not what the whistleblower
said.” I had a very, very congenial, nice
conversation with a man that I like. And he ran on corruption. Because, as you know,
Ukraine is known as a very corrupt country — one of
the most in the world, shockingly, because I
know Ukrainian people. It’s surprising to me. But it’s known as one
of the most corrupt countries. And under the past
leadership, it was having a lot of difficulty. This gentleman — the
current President, the new President — ran on the
basis of anti-corruption, as you know. I think it was his
single-biggest thing. And we had a great
conversation, but it wasn’t reported that way. The only reason I would
have released a letter — because I think it’s
terrible to have to release a letter that you have with the leader of a country. I think it’s a
terrible precedent. But the whistleblower
report or whatever the news was, was so off. It was so horrible. I said, “I never said
that.” I said, “Let me see it.” We have a
stenographer report. We have a very, very
word-for-word report of what I said;
I released it. And almost everybody that
read it said it’s either perfect or
really very good. But it’s a very normal,
nice conversation. And when you see that the
President of Ukraine, President Zelensky, said,
“There was no pressure put on me whatsoever.” His
spokesman came out two days ago — said there was
absolutely no pressure put on the President. I didn’t tell
him to say that. There was no
pressure put on him. All you have to do
is read the report. The problem is, I released
it a day after they had already made their
big statements. And again, it’s
a big scam. And I think Adam Schiff
should be investigated for what he did. He took to the great
Chamber — Congress — and he made a speech. And his speech
was a fraud. Everything he
said was a fraud. He went out as
though I wrote it. He defrauded the
American people. He defrauded Congress. He defrauded himself
and his family. He made a speech as — it
was a horrible speech. I said, “What is this go
— what’s going on here?” I think he’s having some
kind of a breakdown. Because he got up and made
a speech that bore no relationship to what
the conversation was. And I’ll tell you, a lot
of people heard that speech and a lot of people
thought that’s what I said because they
heard his speech. Because they’re not going
to read a three- or four-page conversation. They don’t have
access to it. But I thought it was one
of the — I thought it was a terrible thing, where
he’s going up speaking as the President of the
United States, saying things that I never said. And the meaning
was horrible. And the whole
thought was horrible. And then, the
whistleblower, he did — through his committee,
through himself — he met with a whistleblower. They never said that. They never
talked about it. And Nancy Pelosi knew
all of this stuff. I mean, she’s as guilty as
he is because she knew all of that. She knew everything
about it. And she didn’t do
anything about it. And I’ll tell you what:
They should really be looked at very strongly
because what they did is unthinkable. What they did to this
country is unthinkable. And it’s lucky that I’m
the President, because I guess — I don’t know why
— a lot of people said very few people
could handle it. I sort of thrive on it. You know why? Because — because it’s so
important that we get to the bottom. We went through the whole
Mueller scam — two and a half years. We went through that. And I had three, four days
where it was, like, over. And then I’m walking into
the United Nations, and they released it
as I’m walking in, Mr. Ambassador. I’m walking in. I’m going to meet with —
I won’t name, but one of the top leaders
of the world. And I see up on the screen
and people start screening about this scam called
“impeachment.” You can’t impeach a President
for doing a great job. You can’t impeach a
President for having the lowest and best
unemployment numbers that we’ve had in 51 years. You can’t impeach a
President for tax cuts and regulation cuts and
creating — and even the Ambassador would say —
the strongest economy in the world. We have the strongest
economy in the world. This is a scam. And the people
are wise to it. And that’s why my polls
went up, I think they said, 17 points in the
last two or three days. I’ve never had that one. I’ve never had that one. So, I think it’s very
sad for our country. I think it makes it
harder to do my job. But I do my job, and I do
it better than anybody has done it for the first two
and half years, based on results. I mean, you look at not
only the unemployment numbers — look at the
employment numbers, Jeff. We have — we’re up to
almost 160 million people are working. And now, today, we’ve
signed the deal with Japan, which is
such an honor. And you have a great
country — a great, great country. And to have you partake in
our agricultural product and digital is a
real honor for me. So thank you very much for
coming all this distance and — to be here. And I look forward to
seeing you for many years to come. Please, again, wish Prime
Minister Abe a happy birthday. He’s a very special man. Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you. (applause)

  10. President Trump, dont answer their stupid ignorant questions at a trade meeting! They dont listen to what you say,the are just disgusting! The only questions to answer are questions about the trade agreement! How many dozens of times have you given the moron fake news non-listening idiots the same damned answer! You will never be impeached!

  11. The greatest thing Trump could have done during this speech, toward the end would have been to intentionally separate his scandal away from all those people standing behind him. They all seem quite uncomfortable. It unfortunately takes away from a mostly positive speech.

  21. Business, is a way to describe what the presidency is all about and basically everything is doing business. We have the greatest Businessman in the World as our GREATEST PRESIDENT THAT EVER LIVES. Even wars is all business and business strategy.

  22. I wonder if PM Abe would find it appropriate for me, a veteran, to be compensated for the miserable time I had in the U.S. military, in the form of healthcare that gives access to all medical specialists and procedures.

I got both injuries in the service and the VA refuses to do anything about them. As far as I'm concerned, veterans healthcare still sucks donkey balls.
