Sister of slain El Paso couple calls Dems ‘pure evil’ and ‘monsters’ for not welcoming President Trump



Sister of slain El Paso couple calls Dems ‘pure evil’ and ‘monsters’ for not welcoming President Trump

Vibora (Deborah) Anchondo is grieving the loss of her brother and sister-in-law who were killed as a crazed gunman went on the rampage in a Walmart in El Paso on Saturday, Aug.3. They were killed shielding their 2-month-old son from the gunfire, and when Vibora Anchondo learned President Trump was coming to El Paso to pay his respects, she found comfort in that thought.
Her anger was ignited when she discovered some Democrats from El Paso were objecting to the president’s visit, using the visit as a part of their political agenda, and she took to Facebook to voice her feelings.

One woman personally affected by the mass murder in El Paso, Texas, last Saturday is outraged over the “pure evil” exhibited by Democratic politicians who refused to welcome President Donald Trump to the city.

Deborah Anchondo is the sister of Andre Anchondo, who, along with his wife Jordan, heroically died while shielding his 2-month-old son from bullets during the shooting.

Deborah took to Facebook to tear into Democrats for their divisive comments towards President Trump.

She said it's time to heal and unite, not play politics immediately after the tragic shooting.

Deborah also slammed local Democratic politicians who said Trump is not welcome in El Paso.

“It’s such a shame that two of our local politicians (I refuse to say their names as they don’t deserve it) are saying that our President is not welcome on Wednesday,” she posted Tuesday.

“I cannot believe how these monsters are using the tragic event to push their political agenda,” she added.

Her post got more gut-wrenching from there.

“I lost my brother and sister-in-law on Saturday. My family and I are living a horrible nightmare. The visit from our President will be more than comforting to my family. He will not be here for a political agenda. The two monsters from El Paso, who do not deserve to be mentioned by name nor even the nicknames I have for them, are just pure evil,” she wrote.

“My brothers body was still laying at Walmart on Saturday night when they decided to make this into a political issue and push their agenda by blaming our President for this. Rather than focusing on the situation and the individual who destroyed the lives of many, these evil people selfishly turned this into a political war. I’m equally as angered by those two as I am with the person who took my brother and his wife from me, typing this I think I feel more animosity towards those two evil politicians.”

Remarks by President Trump Before Marine One Departure






Remarks by President Trump Before Marine One Departure

South Lawn

9:49 A.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: So, we’re doing very well with China. We’re talking to China. We’re not ready to make a deal, but we’ll see what happens. But, you know, we’ve been hurt by China for 25, 30 years. Nobody has done anything about it. And we have no choice but to do what we’re doing.

It’s working out very well, as you know. We called them on manipulation and they brought their numbers back, and they brought them back rapidly. And they were able to do that because they manipulate. But that’s — so it’s called “monetary manipulation.” Not good.

But what happened and what’s happening with China now — we have an open dialogue. We’ll see whether or not we keep our meeting in September. If we do, that’s fine. If we don’t, that’s fine. But it’s time that somebody does what we’re doing.

And I said, the American taxpayer is not paying for it. We had a big day in stock market yesterday, but the American taxpayer is not paying for it.

What China is doing is, by depressing their currency and by pouring tremendous amounts of money into their system, they’re paying for it. The prices have not gone up. So when the Amer- — in fact, in some cases, they’ve gone down because the devaluation, plus the money supply — the amount of money that they pour in, which is a form of manipulation — has more than compensated for an increase in price.

So, as I said — and everybody questioned it — in the case of China, the tariffs have been amazing. We’re taking in billions and billions of dollars. Now, China has had their worst year in 35 years now. It was in 26 years, but now it’s in 35 years. I want them to do well. But as of this moment, they’re having the worst year that they’ve had in many, many years — in decades. And really, we’re just bringing the system back into order.

We have all the cards. We’re doing well. Our country is doing fantastically well. You look at Europe; they’ve got problems. In fact, the biggest problem we have is the fact that a lot of other — continents, frankly — but a lot of other countries are not doing well. But we’re doing great, and we continue to do great. Our companies are poised. They have a lot of cash. Our system is beautiful.

Q Mr. President, the NRA has been a strong supporter and ally of yours, going all the way back to the campaign. Can you take a position at odds with the NRA on background checks?

THE PRESIDENT: I think I could, but I don’t think I’ll be there. I have a great relationship with the NRA. They supported me very early, and that’s been a great decision they made. We have Justice Kavanaugh. We have Justice Gorsuch. And they feel very strongly about the Second Amendment.

The NRA has made a great decision in supporting me, and nobody else would have won, aside from everything else. I have a very good relationship. I’ll change it: I have a great relationship with the NRA. I have a lot of respect for the people at the NRA. And I have already spoken to them on numerous occasions. Numerous occasions.

And, frankly, we need intelligent background checks, okay? This isn’t a question of NRA, Republican, or Democrat. I will tell you, I spoke to Mitch McConnell yesterday. He’s totally onboard. He said, “I’ve been waiting for your call.” He is totally onboard. I spoke to senators that, in some cases, people — friends of mine — but pretty hardline senators. Hardline. And when I say that, I say that in a positive way. Hardline on the Second Amendment. And they understand.

We don’t want insane people, mentally ill people, bad people, dangerous people — we don’t want guns in the hands of the wrong people. I think that the Republicans are going to be great and lead the charge along with the Democrats.

I spoke yesterday to Nancy Pelosi. We had a great talk. I spoke to Chuck Schumer. We had a great talk. And Chuck Schumer, in particular, loves my China policy, as you probably know. I said, “I can’t believe it. You actually like something that I’m doing.” He said, “Not ‘like.’ Love.”

So Chuck Schumer is — he’s great on the China situation, which we are winning and winning big. And China wants to do something, but I’m not ready to do anything yet. Twenty-five years of abuse. I’m not ready so fast. So we’ll see how that works out.

But on the background checks — on background checks, we have tremendous support for really commonsense, sensible, important background checks.

Q Mr. President, you expressed support for background checks after Parkland. Why is now different?

THE PRESIDENT: Time goes by. I don’t think I’m different, but I think the Senate is different. I think other people in the House are different. I think that people that maybe had their arm up a couple of years ago, maybe they feel differently. I don’t think I feel any differently.

I think with a lot of success that we have, I think I have a greater influence now over the Senate and over the House.

Q Can it get done now? Can it get done now?

THE PRESIDENT: I think we can get something really good done. I think we can have some really meaningful background checks. We don’t want people that are mentally ill, people that are sick — we don’t want them having guns. Who does?

Q Mr. President, but if the NRA does not support that effort, will you fight them on it?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, we’ll see where the NRA will be. But we have to have meaningful background checks. You know, in the case of — in both cases, it’s possible they wouldn’t have been caught.

But in the one case, we also have to talk about age, because he did things that were very, very bad in Ohio, in Dayton. He did some things that were really bad. His school knew about it. When he turned 18, everything was expunged. We’re going to have to get rid of that because you can’t have that barrier. If they would have had that barrier, they would have been able to see. But because he was a minor, it was expunged. We’re going to have to get rid of that barrier.

I think this: I think a lot of really meaningful things on background checks will take place, including red flags, including a lot of other very, very important items. And the Republicans are looking at it very seriously. And I really believe that the NRA — I’ve spoken to them numerous times — they’re really good people. They’re great patriots. They love our country. They love our country so much. And, frankly, I really think they’re going to get there also.

Q Mr. President, when you talked to Wayne LaPierre — you talked to him several times — did he warn you that background checks could cost you, politically? And did you say to him, “Forget politics, we have to do something now”?

THE PRESIDENT: No. No. I had a good talk with Wayne. And I like Wayne. And, you know — as you know, they supported me very early — far earlier than anybody thought possible, especially me not being a politician. And that support has paid off. We now have two Supreme Court justices that are phenomenal — Kavanaugh and Gorsuch. And, I mean, they’re phenomenal people, and they’re big believers in the Second Amendment, which Wayne is also and which I am.

I mean, there’s been — there’s been no President that feels more strongly about the Second Amendment than I do. However, we need meaningful background checks so that sick people don’t get guns.

Q Will he support you? Will Wayne support you?

THE PRESIDENT: I think, in the end — I think, in the end, Wayne and the NRA will either be there or maybe will be a little bit more neutral, and that would be okay, too.

Look — look, the NRA has, over the years, taken a very, very tough stance on everything, and I understand it. You know, it’s a slippery slope. They think you’ll prove one thing, and that leads to a lot of bad things. I don’t agree with that.

I think we can do meaningful — very meaningful background checks. I want to see it happen.

So I’ve got a lot of support. And I also have the support of other people on the other side. And I think the Democrats and Republicans have a chance to really come together.

Q On Mississippi, why wasn’t there a better plan in place to deal with the migrant children in Mississippi? Why was there family separation?

THE PRESIDENT: The reason is because you have to go in; you can’t let anybody know. Otherwise, when you get there, nobody will be there. But a big factor is to let people outside of the country that want to come in legally — illegally into our country, where they come in in caravans where they surge the border — which, by the way, we have the numbers way down right now, if you see, because Mexico has done a fantastic job.

Mexico has 26,000 soldiers, right now, on the border. They have been fantastic — because of tariffs. But I don’t care what it is, because Mexico — in fact, I’ll be calling the President at a certain point. I just hope they keep it up. Because if the Democrats will change the laws — which I was thinking about putting together, as you know, with the gun situation. So we have immigration and we have, let’s say, some of the things we’re talking about right now — you have them together.

But I want people to know that if they come into the United States illegally, they’re getting out; they’re going to be brought out. And this serves as a very good deterrent. If people come into our country illegally, they’re going out. They’re not coming in illegally and staying. We have bad laws. They may get in — although we’re being very tough — but they may get in, but it doesn’t matter because they’re going out. And when people see what they saw yesterday, and like they will see for a long time, they know that they’re not staying here.

Q (Inaudible) black Americans give you another chance in 2020?

THE PRESIDENT: Oh, I think they really like — you know, it’s really amazing because African American unemployment just came out very recently — the lowest in history. It’s the best — the best numbers in history. African American employment — and Hispanic and Asian, too — have more people working today than ever worked in the history of our country.
Plus, I did criminal justice reform, which President Obama could not get approved — which the media never talks about. If President Obama got criminal justice reform done, it would be front-page stories all over the place. I got it done. I think that African Americans appreciate it.

So I got that. I have the best unemployment numbers. I have the best employment numbers for a lot of people. But for African Americans: number one that we’ve ever had.

One other thing we did, aside from criminal justice reform: Opportunity Zones. And they are doing unbelievably well. And you’ll see that, and you’ve already seen it. But Opportunity Zones. And the biggest beneficiary there is African Americans.

Q (Inaudible.)

THE PRESIDENT: I think so. Yeah. I do.

Q Mr. President, do you plan invite your Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky to the White House? And what would be your advice for him —

THE PRESIDENT: Who are you talking about?

Q The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky.

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah.

Q Do you plan to invite him to the White House? And what would be your advice for him on how to communicate with Vladimir Putin to stop the conflict in Eastern Ukraine?

THE PRESIDENT: I think he’s going to make a deal with President Putin, and he will be invited to the White House. And we look forward to seeing him. He’s already been invited to the White House, and he wants to come. And I think he will. He’s a very reasonable guy. He wants to see peace in Ukraine. And I think he will be coming very soon, actually.

Q Did you watch Mr. Biden’s comments overnight? And does it make you want to change your own rhetoric?

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah, he comments — look. Look, Joe is not playing with a full deck. He made that comment. I said, “Whoa.” I saw it because I was on — something; I had a television. I saw his comment. Joe Biden is not playing with a full deck. This is not somebody you can have as your President. But if he got the nomination, I’d be thrilled.

Q What are you going to do, Mr. President, to keep conservatives from being banned on Twitter?

THE PRESIDENT: We’re looking at that right now. We have a lot of these companies coming in a little while, as you know.

Q What are you going to say to them?

THE PRESIDENT: We’re going to be very tough with them. They’re treating conservatives very unfairly.

Hollywood — I don’t call them the “elites”; I think the elites are people they go after, in many cases. But Hollywood is really terrible. You talk about racist — Hollywood is racist. What they’re doing, with the kind of movies they’re putting out — it’s actually very dangerous for our country. What Hollywood is doing is a tremendous disturbance to our country.

We have now, in a little while, all of the heads of the biggest companies coming in, and we’re going to talk to them. They treat conservatives and Republicans totally different than they treat others. And they can’t do that.

Q Will the Trump administration devalue the U.S. dollar?

THE PRESIDENT: No. We don’t have to. We have such a strong dollar. The problem is, our dollar is at a level that it makes it hard. But the advantage to doing what we have is money is pouring in because we have the safest currency in the world. We have the standard of the world.

But because it’s so strong — it’s gotten so strong because other countries have problems — it makes it harder for our manufacturers.

So if we lowered the interest rate by the Federal Reserve, that would automatically bring down the dollar a little bit, and it would make it easier for Caterpillar and these companies.

But we have the greatest currency in the world. No, I wouldn’t do that.

Q Are you thinking of cancelling the trade talk next month with China?

THE PRESIDENT: So, China wants to settle this deal. They’ve had the worst year that they’ve had in many, many decades. And it’s getting only worse. Thousands of companies are leaving China. They would like to make a deal. I’m not ready to make a deal.

Q But are you willing to cancel the talks next month?

THE PRESIDENT: Maybe. We’ll see what happens. Right now — right now the talks are scheduled in September. Whether or not we’re talking about China, whether or not they’re cancelled, we’ll see.

Look, as I said, our people are not paying for these billions and billions of dollars that came in, $16 billion of which I gave to the farmers because they were targeted by China. And that’s just a small fraction of what we’ve taken in.

So they are not — because what China has been doing — they’re a currency manipulator — they’ve manipulated the value of their currency, and that’s where the money comes. And also, they put tremendous money into the system.

So if you look, prices have not risen. Our people have not paid. So all of these guys that say, “Oh, Trump, Trump, Trump…” — they don’t know what they’re talking about.

Now, China is unique. That doesn’t mean it happens with other countries. It probably doesn’t. But the prices have not gone up. In fact, we have virtually no inflation in our country. If the Federal Reserve would bring down interest rates over a period of time —

Q How much?

THE PRESIDENT: I would love to see a point or even a little bit more than that. If they would stop quantitative tightening, we have a rocket ship.

I mean, we’re doing well without it, but we’re being handcuffed by the Federal Reserve. If they would stop that, it would be incredible.

Q Mr. President, do you want to expand South Korea and Japan Military Information Agreement? Will you support them?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I hope that South Korea and I hope that Japan start getting along with each other. You know, they’re supposed to be allies. And it puts us in a very difficult position. South Korea and Japan are fighting all the time. They’ve got to get along because it puts us in a very bad position.

With that being said, I got a very beautiful letter from Kim Jong Un yesterday. It was delivered — hand-delivered from —

Q What did it say?

THE PRESIDENT: It was a very positive letter.

Q What did it say?

THE PRESIDENT: I’d love to give it to you. I really would. Maybe — maybe sometime I will.

Q Kim Jong Un mention of a next meeting and a summit talk?

THE PRESIDENT: I think we’ll have another meeting. He really wrote a beautiful, three-page — I mean, right from top to bottom — a really beautiful letter. And maybe I’ll release the results of the letter, but it was a very positive letter.

Q Any decision on Huawei?

THE PRESIDENT: We’re not going to do business with Huawei. We’re not doing business with them. And I really made the decision. It’s much simpler not to do any business with Huawei. So we’re not doing business with Huawei. That doesn’t mean we won’t agree to something if and when we make a trade deal, but we’re not going to be doing business with Huawei.

Q When will you nominate someone to replace Coats? Are you looking at Maguire, Hoekstra?

THE PRESIDENT: Maguire is excellent. Admiral. Highly respected. A great leader. He’s Acting right now. Sue did a great job. I like Sue Gordon very much.

I think that, over a period of time — I’m in no rush because we have a great Acting.

Q Have you interviewed Hoekstra?

THE PRESIDENT: I like Hoekstra a lot. I spoke to Senator Burr about different people. He’s head of intelligence. And we’re — I’m working together with Senator Burr and the whole committee. I want to get somebody that everybody can really come together with. I like Pete Hoekstra a lot. He’s great. He’s doing a fantastic job in the Netherlands right now.

Q You had mentioned it was down to three. Is it more than two?

THE PRESIDENT: No, I will tell you: That’s a job that everybody wants. DNI. Everybody. But I’m dealing — I’m dealing with the committee. I’m dealing with, really, Senator Burr a lot. And we’ll come up with somebody that’s great. We have a lot of choice. A lot of people want the job.

Q Tension between Japan and South Korea, are you concerned?

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah, I’m concerned that they’re not getting along with each other. They have to get along with each other. If they don’t get along, what are we doing? They have to get along with each other. It’s very important.

South Korea and Japan have to sit down and get along with each other. Otherwise, what are we all doing?

Q Are you considering moving troops from Germany to Poland?

THE PRESIDENT: So, Poland has been a great, great friend of ours. They’ve offered to build a military base at the cost of many billions of dollars. No money put up by the United States whatsoever. They’ve offered to fund our troops and lots of other things — the way it should be. Not the stupid deals that we made with all these other countries that take advantage of us.

So, Poland has been terrific. And we’re going to be going to Poland very soon. I’m sure you’re going to be going with us. I had a great experience in Poland the last time I went. In fact, some of you actually said the speech was one of the best ever made in Europe by an American President. Hard to believe that you actually said that. When you said that, I was, like, in a state of shock.

Q On the fundraiser tonight, did Stephen Ross say anything about potentially cancelling, given the controversy?

THE PRESIDENT: No. Stephen Ross is a great friend of mine. He’s a very successful guy. We were competitors but friends in real estate, in New York, in the old days. He’s a great guy. He is — by the way, I think he’s probably more inclined to be a liberal, if you want to know the truth. But he likes me, he respects me. We’re doing a fundraiser there. We’re doing another fundraiser with another friend of mine. And I understand the fundraiser was totally sold out, and it’s very successful.

Q Your reaction to the controversy, people boycotting?

THE PRESIDENT: I don’t think — I think it makes Steve much hotter. I explained — I didn’t speak to him yet; I’ll see him in a little while. The controversy makes Steve Ross hotter. He’ll figure that out in about a week. But he’s very happy. He’s got a very successful — a lot of people are going.

We have two fundraisers. One is Steve; one is another gentleman. And I guess they’re going to raise 11 or 12 billion — million dollars. Not billion. Million.

I’m getting used to saying “billion.” We’re talking about a lot of money.

Q When you talked about age restrictions to buy guns, 18 months ago you supported buying long guns at the age of 25, raising the age. Are you considering bringing that back now?

THE PRESIDENT: We’re not talking about anything specific. I can tell you there’s tremendous goodwill for meaningful — I’m talking about “meaningful”; add that word — meaningful background checks so that sick and demented people don’t carry around guns.

You have to remember — and I’ve said it — it’s a big mental illness problem. And the gun doesn’t pull a trigger. A mind — a sick mind pulls a trigger. So we want to take that out of the equation.

Q Do you support the Toomey-Manchin bill or the House bill? Will you lift your veto threat?

THE PRESIDENT: We’re looking at Toomey-Manchin. Actually, if you look, there are many bills that have been put in over a period of four, five years. They went nowhere. But there’s never been a President like President Trump.

Q Mr. President, will you call Congress back into session to pass (inaudible)?

THE PRESIDENT: I don’t think we’ll need to. I may. Leadership is dealing along with me right now. By the time you call them back, they’re going to be back anyway. I don’t think we’ll need to call them back. I think we’ll have a very good package by the time they come back and they can start debating and voting on it then. So I really don’t think, for the extra little time, it matters.

Leadership is doing a really good job — Mitch McConnell, Kevin, Nancy. I spoke with Nancy Pelosi yesterday. I spoke with Chuck Schumer yesterday. There’s a lot of goodwill about this issue.

Q And do you think that — I mean, do you need to give a speech to do something to marshal support for this?

THE PRESIDENT: I don’t think so. No. No.

Q Will you lead the charge?

THE PRESIDENT: I think we have a lot of support. I mean, I’m very fortunate. In the Republican Party, I’m at 94 percent approval rating, so that helps. But I have a great relationship with the Republican senators. And I really think they’re looking for me to make — give them a signal. And we’re going to have great support, and I think we’ll have the support from the Democrats also.

Q Mr. President, you also said this after Parkland. Why should Americans believe you now?

THE PRESIDENT: No, no. I never said what I’m saying now.

Q (Inaudible) background checks after Parkland.

THE PRESIDENT: What I’m saying — what I said, though: You have tremendous opposition from many people on both sides. I see a better feeling right now towards getting something meaningful done. Meaningful. And we did do things after Parkland, but it wasn’t to the same level that I’m talking about now.

You know, we did do the Fix NICS and various other things. So we did do a lot of work after Parkland. But I think we have now a chance to do something, really, much more meaningful —

Q Support among Republicans or —

THE PRESIDENT: — having to do — having to do, as you know, with background checks.

Q Mr. President, it’s almost back-to-school season. What is your message to young children and teenagers who are anxious or nervous about going back to school after these mass shootings?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, my message to young children going back to school is: Go and really study hard, and someday you’ll grow up and maybe be President of the United States or do something else that’s fantastic.

They have nothing to fear. They have nothing to worry about. In addition, we’re in constant contact with states, with state governments. And they are really doing a great job. We have this so much better than it was two and a half years ago. Two and a half years ago, when I came in, it was really not a good situation. I think we have a very, very good system right now. That doesn’t mean that there’s not going to be some crazy person, but that’s what we want to do. We want to take the guns out of the hands of crazy, demented, sick people.

Q (Inaudible) assault weapons ban — will you be telling the NRA to stand down?

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah, we’re not looking at that right now. We’re really looking at very meaningful background checks. I think it’s going to happen. There’s great, great support. But we’re looking at very, very meaningful background checks.

Q What is the advantage to having Maguire as the head of DNI versus Gordon?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, Admiral — as you know, Maguire — Admiral Maguire is a very talented man. He’s a great leader. As an Admiral, was always a great leader. He is a man who is respected by everybody, and he’s going to be there for a period of time. Who knows? Maybe he gets the job. But he’ll be there for a period of time — maybe a longer period of time than we think. We’ll see.

We’re dealing with Senator Burr. We’re dealing with the committee. We’re dealing with probably 9 or 10 people that want the job very much. You know the name of almost every one of them. They’re truly outstanding. Everybody wants DNI. Everybody wants it.

And I will say that the Admiral is such a great choice from the standpoint of now. And maybe he goes further. We’ll see what happens. But we’re dealing with the committee and Senator Burr. We have people, all of whom you know — highly respected people. We’ll be making a decision in the not-too-distant future.

Q Thank you, Mr. President. Are you still committed to naming Eugene Scalia Secretary of Labor? And when will you send a nomination to the Senate?

THE PRESIDENT: So, Eugene Scalia is a highly respected lawyer in Washington. His father, as you know, was the great, great, great Supreme Court Justice. Even the people with not his views would say he was a great gentleman, a great man.

Eugene Scalia — Gene Scalia — has had a fantastic career. As you know, he’s our appointment for Labor Secretary. I think — so far, it’s been received very well. He is a very — he’s one of the finest minds and lawyers in Washington. And I will say, so far, that’s been received very well.

Q On North Korea, this letter to you, did Kim Jong Un make any promises about stopping the ballistic missile testing that he’s been carrying out?

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah, he gave me a great letter. I would love to give you, but, I don’t know, I don’t think it would be appropriate. But it was a very personal letter.

Q Talked about missile testing?

THE PRESIDENT: It was a great letter. He talked about what he’s doing. He’s not happy with the testing. It’s a very small testing that we did. But he wasn’t happy with the testing; he put that in the letter. But he also sees a great future for North Korea. And so we’ll see how it all works out.

In the meantime, I say it again: There have been no nuclear tests. The missile tests have all been short-range. No ballistic missile tests. No long-range missiles. We got back, and we’re getting back — as we speak, we’re getting back a lot of our fallen heroes. You know that. They’re coming back into and through Hawaii. And we got back our hostages.

So I thought the letter — I just got it yesterday. It was hand-delivered and it wasn’t touched by anybody. They literally take it from North Korea to my office. We have a system. It’s the old-fashioned system. You don’t have to worry about leaks. Something nice about that system.

Q Mr. President, what do you mean that he wasn’t happy with the missile tests? He carried them out. He ordered them.

THE PRESIDENT: No, he wasn’t. He wasn’t happy with the tests — the war games. The war games on the other side, with the United States. And as you know, I’ve never liked it either. I’ve never liked it. I’ve never been a fan. You know why? I don’t like paying for it. We should be reimbursed for it, and I’ve told that to South Korea. But I don’t like it either. But I said, “Do this,” because this was a big test. This was a turnover of various areas to South Korea. I like that because that’s what should happen.

Q Several countries issued travel warnings to United States. And Japan specifically said gunfire is potentially everywhere in the U.S. What is your reaction to that?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I can’t imagine that. But if they did that, we’d just reciprocate. We are a very reciprocal nation, with me as the head. When somebody does something negative to us in terms of a country, we do it to them.

Look, our country has been taken advantage of by foreign countries, even allies — including allies, and in many cases, more than anybody else. We’ve been taken advantage of for many, many years, and it stops. It stopped.

Q In your view, Mr. President, should Colin Kaepernick get an opportunity to play in the NFL?

THE PRESIDENT: Only if he’s good enough. Yeah, if he’s good enough. Why would he play? If he’s good enough. And I think if he was good enough — I know the owners. I know Bob Kraft. I know so many of the owners. If he’s good enough, they’d sign him. So, if he’s good enough — I know these people — they would sign him in a heartbeat. They will do anything they can to win games.

So I’d like to see it. Frankly, I’d love to see Kaepernick come in if he’s good enough. But I don’t want to see him come in because somebody thinks it’s a good PR move. If he’s good enough, he will be in.

Q Are you worried about global markets pulling back at all?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, the global markets are not as good as our market. Our market has been really good.

Q Are you worried about the effect — the (inaudible) effect to the U.S.?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, it always — it’s never positive. Although, you could say it puts us in an even better position. I view it differently. I mean, most people would say that’s a bad thing. I would say the fact that other countries aren’t doing really well — China, in particular. China is doing horribly. Horribly. First time that anyone can remember. They are having a year like they never had. Almost — you know, go back, 30, 40 years. They’re having one of the worst years ever. The numbers are phony. They’re not doing 6.2; they’re doing a totally different number.

Q What do you think they’re doing?

THE PRESIDENT: Maybe neutral. Maybe even —

Q Does Democrats calling you and your supporters a white nationalist, a white supremacist, help you?

THE PRESIDENT: I don’t think it helps. First of all, I don’t like it when they do it because I am not any of those things. I think it’s a disgrace. And I think it shows how desperate the Democrats are. Look, right now, I’m working with the Democrats on meaningful background checks. That’s a big thing. Hopefully, we can do something. But — so I don’t want to focus too much on that.

I will say this: For them to throw out the race word again — “racist, racist, racist.” That’s all they use — to anybody. They called Nancy Pelosi a racist. She’s not a racist. They call anybody a “racist” when they run out of cards.

I’m winning in the polls. They’re desperate. They’ve got lousy candidates. They’ve got bad candidates. I mean, I watched the debates. I mean, I look —

Q (Inaudible.)

THE PRESIDENT: I look — well, I mean, Joe Biden can’t answer a simple question. Something is going wrong with him. I mean, the only — the only thing is — I mean, a lot of people think that he was the one that wanted Bob Mueller to testify because it made Joe look intelligent. Okay?

Q Is your base supporting background checks?

THE PRESIDENT: I think my base relies very much on common sense and they rely on me, in terms of telling them what’s happening. I think meaningful background checks — I don’t just say “background checks.” Because we passed background checks a number of times, meaning the Democr- — but everybody knew they weren’t that strong.

Q Do you want to expand the law?

THE PRESIDENT: I think meaningful background checks are a real positive. Politically, I can’t tell you. You know, I don’t know — good, bad, or indifferent. I don’t care, politically. I don’t want to have crazy people having guns.

El Paso Regional Communications Center
El Paso, Texas

4:53 P.M. MDT

Q Mr. President, can you tell us about today and what you’ve seen?

THE PRESIDENT: We had an amazing day. As you know, we left Ohio. And the love and the respect for the office of the presidency, it was — I wish you could have been in there to see it. I wish you could have been in there.

And it was no different here. We went to the hospital — just came from the hospital. We were there a lot longer than we were anticipated to be. It was supposed to be just a fairly quick — we met with numerous people. We met with also the doctors, the nurses, the medical staff. They have done an incredible job — both places. Just incredible.

And the enthusiasm, the love, the respect, and also the — telling me, “Let’s see if we can get something done.” And Republicans want to do it and Democrats want to do it.

And, by the way, here is a great hero. This man — the job he did. You all know who it is. Everybody — the whole world knows who you are now, right?

PRIVATE FIRST CLASS OAKLEY: Yes, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: So you’ll be a movie star, the way you look. That’ll be — hey, that’ll be next. Who knows, right?

PRIVATE FIRST CLASS OAKLEY: Yes, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: But what a job. What a job you did.

PRIVATE FIRST CLASS OAKLEY: Thank you, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: There are a lot of heroes. There are a lot of heroes. A lot of people did just incredible work. Now we’re going in, I believe, Chief, and say hello to some of your folks.

POLICE CHIEF ALLEN: Yes, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: This is one of the most respected men in law enforcement, and I want to thank you very much.

POLICE CHIEF ALLEN: Thank you, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much.

Q President Trump, you said today was about healing and unity, and you’ve attacked a number of your critics — Vice President Biden, Senator Brown, Mayor Whaley, as well as various members of the media. Can you explain why you chose to take that tone?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, they shouldn’t be politicking. Yeah, they shouldn’t be politicking today. I had it with Sherrod Brown. He and the mayor, Nan Whaley, they asked to go in — “Could we possibly go in and make the tour with you?” I said, “Yeah, let’s do it.”

They couldn’t believe what they saw, and they said it to people. They’ve never seen anything like it. The entire hospital — no different than what we had in El Paso — the entire hospital was — I mean, everybody was so proud of the job they did because they did a great job. They did a great job here.

And then I said goodbye. I took them in, at their request. We made the tour. They couldn’t believe it. She said it to people. He said it to people.

I get on Air Force One, where they do have a lot of televisions. I turn on the television, and there they are, saying, “Well, I don’t know if it was appropriate for the President to be in…” You know, et cetera, et cetera. You know, the same old line. And they’re very dishonest people and that’s probably why he got, I think, about zero percent and he failed as a presidential candidate.

We’re going to go in and see some very brave people. And I wanted to meet this hero before I did anything. And we appreciate it.

President Trump Addresses The Nation and responded to two mass shootings that took place over the weekend







President Trump Addresses The Nation and responded to two mass shootings that took place over the weekend


Speaking from the White House Monday morning with Vice President Mike Pence by his side, President Donald Trump addressed the nation and responded to two mass shootings that took place over the weekend. Dozens of people were killed and severely wounded in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas.

"These barbaric slaughters are an assault upon our communities, an attack on our nation and a crime against all humanity. We are outraged by this monstrous evil, the cruelty, the malice, bloodshed and the terror. Our hearts are shattered for every family whose parents, children, husbands and wives were ripped from their arms and their lives. America weeps for the fallen. We are a loving nation and our children are entitled to grow up in a just, peaceful and loving society," Trump said, calling law enforcement who responded to the shootings American heroes. "Together we lock arms to shoulder the grief. We ask God in heaven to ease the anguish of those who suffer and we vow to act with urgent resolve."

"In one voice our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy," he continued. "These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America."

President Trump called for action to solve mass shootings and urged Congress to put partisanship aside to come up with solutions.

"Now is the time to set destructive partisanship aside," Trump said. "Our future is in our control. America will always rise to the challenge....it is not up to mentally ill monsters, it is up to us."

"Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun...I am open and ready to listen and discuss all ideas that will actually work and make a very big difference," he continued.

President Trump gave a detailed outline of what the White House is doing in the meantime to solve this problem.

"The internet has provided a dangerous avenue to radicalize disturbed minds and perform demented acts. We must shine light on the dark recesses of the internet and stop mass murders before they start," he said, directing Attorney General Bill Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray to fully investigate.

President Trump also urged social media companies to develop tools to detect mass shooters and advocated for a death penalty against mass shooters that is delivered "quickly and decisively."

President Trump also sent his condolences to the Mexican government after a number of citizens were killed in El Paso.

The flags at the White House have been lowered to half-staff and will remain there until Thursday in honor of the victims.

President Trump Makes an Announcement on EU Trade







President Trump Makes an Announcement on EU Trade

Remarks by President Trump at Signing of a U.S.-EU Trade Agreement


Roosevelt Room

2:13 P.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Well, thank you very much everybody. We appreciate it. A wonderful day, and a wonderful deal for a lot of people. Today, we’re signing a breakthrough agreement that will make it easier to export American beef into the European Union. We’ve been under negotiation for quite a while. And our beef farmers, we didn’t think were being treated fair, but the European Union stepped up and we appreciate it. And we have great representatives here with us today.

This is a tremendous victory for American farmers, ranchers, and, of course, European consumers because American beef is considered the best in the world.

We are delighted to be joined today by Ambassador Robert Lighthizer, Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Censky, the European Union’s Ambassador to the United States Stavros Lambrinidis, and Representative of the Presidency of the Council of the EU Jani Raappana.

I also want to thank Senator John Hoeven, my friend, for being here, along — where’s John? John. Good job, John. Along with the President of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, Jennifer Houston. Thank you, Jennifer. And the President and CEO of the United States Meat Export Federation, Dan Halstrom. Thank you, Dan, very much. Congratulations.

The agreement we sign today will lower trade barriers in Europe and expand access for American farmers and ranchers. In year one, duty-free American beef exports to the EU will increase by 46 percent. Over seven years, they will increase by another 90 percent. In total, the duty-free exports will rise from $150 million to $420 million, an increase of over 180 percent.

My administration is standing up for our farmers and ranchers like never before. We’re protecting our farmers. We’re doing it in many ways, including with China. You may have read a little bit about China lately.

Agricultural products and exports have increased by more than $10 billion, and beef exports have increased by more than 31 percent. In another major win, we fully opened the Japanese market to U.S. beef. We also opened markets in Tunisia, Morocco, and Australia. I think you’re pretty happy about all of that, right? You’ve never seen anything like that happen before, have you? Huh?

MS. HOUSTON: We have not.

THE PRESIDENT: Not with your other Presidents, you haven’t. (Laughter.)

And we’re reducing burdensome regulations that unfairly impact agricultural producers. When our farmers became victims of unjustified retaliatory tariffs from China and other countries, we provided $28 billion, over a two-year period, in relief. They were targeted, and we took care of our farmers and ranchers. And I signed a historic farm bill, which provides our farmers with certainty and the kind of certainty that they need while supporting increased agricultural exports.

The agreement that we are about to sign keeps one more promise to the great patriots of American agriculture. These are indeed patriots. They’re always targeted first by other countries to try and take advantage of the United States. They’re the first to be targeted, but we take that target off their back.

Opening markets for our farmers is about more than just an industry, it’s about a way of life. Generations of hard work, passion, and dedication have gone into making America the largest producer of high quality beef anywhere in the world, by far. We’re proud of our farmers and ranchers. We love our farmers and ranchers. And with this announcement, we take one more step in giving them the level playing field that they have — looking — they’ve really been looking forward to this for many, many years. You folks know that. They want a level playing field. That’s all they want. And nobody can beat them. So I want to thank you all for being here.

And now I’d like to invite a very great gentleman, a friend of mine, and somebody that’s done a fantastic job for our country, Ambassador Lighthizer, to say a few words. And we’ll follow that up with some of the very high officials from the European Union. Thank you very much. Bob? Thank you.

AMBASSADOR LIGHTHIZER: Thank you, Mr. President, for being here today and for your leadership in making trade policy work better for all Americans, but particularly our farmers and ranchers.

I’m pleased to be joined today here by Mr. Jani Raappana, the Deputy Chief of Mission at the Embassy of Finland — the EU member state that currently holds the Presidency of the Council of EU — and Ambassador Stavros Lambrinidis, the Ambassador from the EU.

This agreement will nearly triple the duty-free access of American ranchers to high quality beef in Europe. Initial estimates indicate that U.S. beef will grow by over $270 million a year once the agreement is fully implemented.

With this new, exclusive country-specific quota, American ranchers have a guaranteed market share in Europe. We look forward to the European Union approving this agreement expeditiously.

AMBASSADOR RAAPPANA: Good morning. Mr. President, Ambassador Lighthizer, ladies and gentlemen, I’m honored to be one of the signatories of this EU-U.S. hormone-free beef agreement.
Thanks to this new arrangement, a very substantial amount of existing quota will be ring-fenced for the USA. This provides a solution to our longstanding dispute in the WTO.

Let me underline that the negotiations for this agreement we are conducting is good spirit and it’s a great example of how the multilateral trading system can work for settling trade disputes.

With this agreement, the EU reaffirms its commitment to a positive transatlantic trade agenda and a new phase in the EU-U.S. relationship.

The agreement will be announced to the European Parliament, and we hope to obtain soon — obtain the consent as soon as possible.

I would also like to highlight that strengthening the EU trade relations with the U.S. is a priority of the Finnish presidency.

Finally, I wish to thank all the negotiators on both sides for their efforts. Thank you very much. Thank you, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. Very much. Thank you. Thank you very much.

Please.

AMBASSADOR LAMBRINIDIS: Mr. President, Ambassador Lighthizer, dear friends from the American farming community, ladies and gentlemen: Today is about delivering real, positive, tangible results in the transatlantic trade relationship — the strongest, biggest relationship in the world.

Our companies, our farmers, make more money investing trading with each other than we do with anyone else in the world.

But, Mr. President, last year in the Rose Garden with President Juncker, you said you wanted more. You wanted to strengthen this relationship for the benefit of all Americans and all Europeans. And, in this spirit, we’re here today signing this agreement.

Indeed, it can more than double the hormone-free beef exports of U.S. farmers to the EU. This is a great day for American farmers. It’s a great day for European consumers.

And, of course, we’re working on so many other areas of progress. In soybeans, exports to the European Union have seen a massive increase over the past year. LNG exports have seen a significant boost, as well, in shipments, fortifying security of supply and diversity.

And we’re working on many other things: fortifying the WTO, negotiating on regulatory matters, including standards. Mr. President, I mention standards because, for us, it’s a highlight of the fact that trade is not just about money, it is also about values. It’s about making sure that high standards are used and upheld to deal with unfair competition.

And as we are dealing with fair competition here today, there are countries around the world that are not simply exporting cheap, subsidized products; they’re also trying to export cheap labor standards, weak governance, poor environmental standards.

And the agreement that we signed today shows us, as partners, we can solve problems. And as partners, together in the spirit of this partnership, we can also try to shape a world that is based on strong, open values and strong, open rules.

Thank you very much. It’s a great honor for the European Union to be here.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much.

AMBASSADOR LAMBRINIDIS: Oh, may I say, I asked for a hat. (Laughter.)

THE PRESIDENT: I like those hats.

AMBASSADOR LAMBRINIDIS: And they told me —

MS. HOUSTON: We’ll make that happen.

AMBASSADOR LAMBRINIDIS: They told me I don’t deserve it.

THE PRESIDENT: We’ll get you one. (Laughter.)

MS. HOUSTON: Yeah, we can make that happen.

AMBASSADOR LAMBRINIDIS: I have not earned it yet, they say. (Laughter.)

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. John, please.

SENATOR HOEVEN: Well, thank you, Mr. President. This is what our ranchers and our farmers, our producers across this great country, are after. These are the kind of agreements that really make a difference. And that’s what this is about. This is about access to markets. We produce the highest-quality beef anywhere in the world. They have great hats, but they have great cattle. They do a great job. Our ranchers across this country are absolutely the best in the world. So when we get access to markets, then they can really go to town and outcompete really anybody, anywhere.

So whether it’s the ranchers or farmers, whether it’s livestock, whether it’s crops, this is the kind of agreement we need. Again, I want to express appreciation to the President and to his whole team — to Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue, certainly to USTR Lighthizer, to Ambassador Doud, to the whole team. They’re working very hard on behalf of agriculture.

You know about the assistance they’re providing, but that assistance is because our farmers and our ranchers have been targeted by China and other countries. So the administration and USDA is standing up for our farmers while they’re negotiating these kinds of agreements. And I’m anxious to see what they can do with Japan.

And we’ve got to get the USMCA through the Congress. We need the House to bring it up. The Senate is ready to go. We’re ready to pass it with a big, bipartisan vote.

But each of these steps are critically important for our farmers. And again, on behalf of all of us in the Senate that work in agriculture, this is what we want — these kind of agreements — tripling what we can put into the beef that we can export to Europe under this agreement between the United States and Europe.

So again, congratulations. And on behalf of agriculture, thank you.

THE PRESIDENT: Great, John. Thank you very much.

MS. HOUSTON: Yes, this is a great day for — (the President lowers the microphone) — thank you — (laughter) — for America’s cattlemen and cattlewomen. And thank you, Mr. President, to you and all of your trade team for your diligence. Because, for years, it’s been difficult for us to get access to the European Union because of some non-tariff and restricted tariff trade practices.

And we want them to be able to enjoy the high-quality beef that our American farmers and ranchers produce everywhere, that’s enjoyed by the rest of the world. And we’re so excited that our European families — and thank you to all that — are going to be able to enjoy that high-quality beef.

Thanks again, Mr. President, for your support of America’s farmers and ranchers and all to your trade team. And to you all, thank you.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Thank you very much.

Please.

MR. KESTER: Well, that was unexpected, but — (laughter).

Thank you, Mr. President. I’ll — my name is Kevin Kester. I’m immediate past president for National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, and I’m a rancher from California. I’ll just briefly say that I’m a fifth generation. I have a seventh-generation family on the ranch. And we will directly benefit from this new agreement with the European Union. And so we’re very thankful to that.

So thank you to the EU, and thank you, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. Congratulations. Very Good.

Please.

MR. HALSTROM: Thank you, Mr. President. I’m Dan Halstrom, President and CEO of the U.S. Meat Export Federation. And on behalf of all of our members in agriculture throughout the United States, and our beef producers especially, we’d like to say thank you. This is an honor and a great day for us, with our European Union friends, for expanded access. And we really do appreciate everything that the President and the administration is doing on behalf of the farmers of America. So, thank you.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much.

Steve, please.

DEPUTY SECRETARY CENSKY: Thank you. Steve Censky, Deputy Secretary of Agriculture. And I again wanted to express my appreciation and our appreciation on behalf of all of U.S. farmers and ranchers for the leadership of you, Mr. President, for making it a priority to stand up and fight for market access for U.S. producers. This is a great day to celebrate, and we look forward to more wins like this.

So thank you very much, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Great job, Steve.

(The agreement is signed.) (Applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Congratulations. And we’re working on deal where the European Union will agree to pay a 25 percent tariff on all Mercedes-Benz’s, BMWs, coming into our nation. So, we appreciate that. I’m only kidding. (Laughter.) They started to get a little bit worried. They started — thank you.

Congratulations. Best beef in the world. Thank you very much.

President Trump Signs H.R. 1327, The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund


President Trump kept America’s promise to all those who answered the call to serve during and following the September 11 terrorist attacks. Surrounded by first responders and the families of victims, the President signed into law a permanent authorization of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.

“We have an obligation, and it’s a sacred obligation, to the families and first responders of 9/11,” the President said in the Rose Garden.

In the wake of those attacks, more than 2,000 of these brave men and women have died from illnesses related to the toxic fallout from that day. Nearly 18 years later, thousands more fight the same battle.

Now, these heroes and their families will always have the financial support they need.

President Trump Delivers Remarks About Mueller and DemoRATS Witch Hunt





President Trump Delivers Remarks About Mueller and DemoRATS Witch Hunt

South Lawn

4:24 P.M. EDT

Q Mr. President, what’s your reaction to the testimony?

THE PRESIDENT: So we had a very good day today. The Republican Party, our country — there was no defense of what Robert Mueller was trying to defend, in all fairness to Robert Mueller. Whether his performance was a bad one or a good one, I think everybody understands that. I think everybody understands what’s going on.

There was no defense for this ridiculous hoax, this witch hunt that’s been going on for a long time — pretty much from the time I came down on the escalator with our First Lady. And it’s a disgrace what happened. But I think today proved a lot to everybody. In fact, some of my biggest opponents wrote things today that I wouldn’t have believed they would have written, and I appreciate that they did that.

This has been a very bad thing for our country. And despite everything we’ve been through, it’s been an incredible two and half years for our country. The administration, our President — me — we’ve done a great job. We’ve got the strongest stock market, the best unemployment numbers, the most number of people ever working in the history of our country right now — almost 160 million. Our military has been rebuilt and getting even stronger.

We’ve done a great job, and we’ve done it under this terrible, phony cloud. A phony cloud; that’s all it was. And they should be ashamed of themselves. Absolutely ashamed. And you know who knew it was a phony cloud more than anyone else? It was Schiff and Nadler and Schumer and Pelosi — every one of them. They all knew it was phony stuff.

And if you look at the polls, the polls are showing it maybe more than anybody else or anything else. And I’ve had my best polls, and I don’t say why. But people see what’s gone on in our country with this whole thing. I’ve been going through it for three years — for three years — all the nonsense.

So this was a very big day for our country. This was a very big day for the Republican Party. And you could say it was a great day for me, but I don’t even like to say that. It’s great.

I’ll tell you what: I very much appreciate those incredible warriors that you watched today on television — Republicans — that defended something, and defended something very powerful, very important. Because they were really defending our country. More than anything else, they were defending our country. But they were warriors, and they’ve been warriors for a long time.

And everybody knew it was a hoax, especially the Democrats. I wish we could be a fly on the wall in those rooms where the Democrats would go in and talk before and after meetings, and they’d be laughing and smiling and say, “Can you believe that we’re getting away with this?” But, in the end, they didn’t get away with it.

Yeah.

Q Mr. President, Robert Mueller specifically testified that he did not exonerate you. Why do you continue to say that he does?

THE PRESIDENT: So, there is no such a thing. He didn’t have the right to exonerate. And, you know, it’s very interesting: People mention exoneration. That was something where he totally folded because he never had the right to exonerate. And it was covered very well by Congressman Turner and put to a conclusion.

We were — if you take a look at not only the report, beyond the report, take a look at not what he said but what he was forced to say. And even your networks and your network and your network and your net- — every one of these networks, they put up their hands. You know, we had a couple of cases with — actually, we had about six cases where they asked our people, our representatives’ television networks, “Please, don’t come in tonight. We’re not going to be doing much on it.” And the reason they’re not: because it’s over.

Go ahead.

Q Mr. President, sir, do you regret, sir — two questions for you. Are you concerned you could be indicted out of office? And do you regret talking so much about WikiLeaks, given Robert Mueller called that problematic?

THE PRESIDENT: So, WikiLeaks is a hoax, just like everything else. And all of those problems having to do with crime were the biggest hoax of all. It was a witch hunt. A total witch hunt. And when you saw Robert Mueller’s statement, the earlier statement, and then he did a recap, he did a correction later on in the afternoon. And you know what that correction was, and you still asked the question. Do you know why? Because you’re fake news. And you’re one of the most.

And let me just tell you, the fact that you even asked that question, you’re fake news. Because you know what? He totally corrected himself in the afternoon. And you know that just as well as anybody.

Kaitlan. Kaitlan.

Q He said your written answers were not “generally truthful.” What was not truthful in your written answers to the Special Counsel?

THE PRESIDENT: I don’t know whose answers weren’t. I guess his answers weren’t. Because if you look, the whole report — you take a look at what they did: Some of the things that he didn’t even know about; some of the things he didn’t even know what was going on.

But you know, in the end, what he did, he actually, probably, came through for himself. The performance was obviously not very good. He had a lot of problems. But what he showed more than anything else is that this whole thing has been three years of embarrassment and waste of time for our country. And you know what? The Democrats thought they could win an election like this. I think they hurt themselves very badly for 2020.

Q Did Donald Trump, Jr. — did your son, Donald Trump, Jr., speak with Robert Mueller?

THE PRESIDENT: Did I what?

Q Did your son, Donald Trump, Jr., speak with Robert Mueller?

THE PRESIDENT: I don’t know. I really don’t know.

Q How do you not know?

THE PRESIDENT: I never — I don’t know.

Yeah, go ahead.

Q Mr. President, are you concerned about what was said —

THE PRESIDENT: I mean, frankly, whether or not he did, it wouldn’t matter to me —

Q How would you not know?

THE PRESIDENT: — because he did nothing wrong. He did nothing wrong.

Q But how would you not know?

THE PRESIDENT: Because it’s so unimportant. It was always a very unimportant meeting. It was only important to the fake news.

Go ahead.

Q Mueller said you could be charged once you leave office.

THE PRESIDENT: No, he didn’t say that.

Q Yes, he did.

THE PRESIDENT: Again, you’re fake news. And you’re right at the top of the list, also.

Let me just tell you —

Q That is what he said, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: — go back to what — it’s not what he said. Read his correction.

Q That was not his correction. His correction was about exonerating you.

THE PRESIDENT: Read his correction.

Q It was about exonerating you. That was not about if you could be charged after you leave office.

THE PRESIDENT: If you read his correction, you’ll find out. That’s why people don’t deal with you because you’re not an honest reporter.

John.

Q Mr. President, do you believe that — there are some Democrats who are saying that Mueller’s testimony today could form the basis for an impeachment investigation? What do you say in response?

THE PRESIDENT: They are devastated. The Democrats lost so big today. Their party is in shambles right now. They’ve got the Squad leading their party. They are a mess — where even you take a look at scribe and you take a look at so many of the people that were the most outspoken, and they say this was a devastating day for the Democrats. And you know it, John, and everybody else knows it. This was devastating day for the Democrats.

Q Are you concerned, Mr. President, that after you leave office, you could be indicted?

THE PRESIDENT: No, no. A very dumb and very unfair question.

Q Why is that?

THE PRESIDENT: Because if you look at his correction, he took that totally out of play. He made his decision based on the facts, not based on some rule. So you shouldn’t even ask that question because you know it’s a phony.

Go ahead.

Q Do you think the Democrats are trying to (inaudible) and keep (inaudible)?

THE PRESIDENT: The Democrats had nothing, and now they have less than nothing. And I think they’re going to lose the 2020 election very big, including congressional seats, because of the path that they chose.

Now, who knows where it goes. From what I hear, they’re giving up. But I just say, I know them too well. They’ll never give up. They’ll go back into the room and they’ll try and figure something out. This whole thing has been — honestly, it’s been collusion. It’s been collusion with the media. It’s been collusion with other countries. This has been a disaster for the Democrats, and I think we’re going to win bigger than ever.

Now, I’m — I’m going to West Virginia, one of the great states. A state that’s doing — if you look at percentage up, I think it’s number one or number two in the country. And nobody would have believed that. West Virginia is doing great. So, I’m going to West Virginia.

We did have a big case today. You know, we won the asylum case in Washington which, frankly, you should be asking about that because that’s the real deal.

I can’t believe how nice you are today. Go ahead, give me a question.

Q Thank you. My question, Mr. President, is: Do you believe that even though he backed away from it, that you, after you leave office, could face indictment for obstruction?

THE PRESIDENT: No, because we did nothing wrong. The answer is very simple. Nothing was done wrong. This was all a big hoax. And if you look at it today, nothing was done wrong.

Now, I believe what you’re going to find — you’re going to find a lot of things that were done very wrong. But that’s going on now. That’s something you haven’t been writing about, and that has to do with the other side’s — that has to do with a thing called “investigate the investigators.” Let’s see what happens. That’s going to be very interesting.

Q Do you think Robert Mueller did a good job in this investigation? Where are you at on that now?

THE PRESIDENT: Look, I think Robert Mueller did a horrible job, both today and with respect to the investigation. But in all fairness to Robert Mueller, he had nothing to work with. You know, you can be a builder, but if they don’t give you the right materials, you’re not going to build a very good building.

Robert Mueller had no material. He had nothing to work with. So, obviously, he did very poorly today. I don’t think there’s anybody — even among the fakers, I don’t think there’s anybody who would say he did well. I looked at your people; they’re saying it was devastating for the Democrats.

And even, I will tell you, the two most nauseous and nauseating networks — whose ratings have both gone down, way down — even they said this was a really bad day for the Democrats.

So, Robert Mueller did a poor job. But in all fairness to him, he had nothing to work with.

David.

Q Mr. President, do you regret not talking to Mueller now that you’ve seen him in action?

THE PRESIDENT: Look, I saw what he did to people — how he ruined people’s lives because they didn’t remember a date or something very minor. He ruined people’s lives.

The Democrats, they took people and they destroyed their lives. They went bankrupt because they couldn’t afford the legal fees, and they were good people — many, many people.

So when you ask me that question, all they have to do is — see how nice this weather is? If I made a mistake and said I was talking to the media and it was a little bit rainy, a little bit overcast, they’d say, “Well, we have to do — he lied.”

Let me tell you, I’ve seen what they’ve done to people. I’ve seen how they’ve destroyed people like General Flynn and so many others — what they’ve done to people. No, I did the right thing.

Q You said Mueller did a “horrible job.” (Inaudible) about the report today. Why is that?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, Mueller had no material. Sure. Mueller had no material to work with, and he did a horrible job. Obviously, his presentation was way off. But that’s okay. It didn’t matter. He had no material. There was nothing done wrong. In fact, things were done right. There was nothing done wrong.

And certainly — I mean, look, I read the papers and I read the press and I read the Internet, and if you see what’s going on the Internet, if you listen to the Internet, this was one of the worst performances in the history of our country. So, you know that. You know that very well.

But I don’t think anybody could have done a good performance. He had no material. It was a fake set of facts that the Democrats used — and others — to try and do really an illegal overthrow. But we’re going to find out about that.

Q On the asylum ruling, what does this mean for your plans going forward?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, the asylum is a big —

Q And what are you going to do about Guatemala?

THE PRESIDENT: Say it?

Q What are you going to do about Guatemala?

THE PRESIDENT: So, the asylum is a very big ruling. That was a tremendous ruling today. We appreciate it. We respect the courts very much. That helps us very much at the border. The numbers are way down at the border, which is a good thing. Apprehensions are way down because Mexico has now 22,000 soldiers. And they’re — they mean business because they know what happens; the alternative is not good for them.

It’s also good for Mexico, what they’re doing, because the cartels have been running all of the border for years and years. And Mexico is saying — and the President is saying, “We got to clean it up.” So they’ve got 21,000 soldiers. They’ll probably put up more.

But this ruling today on asylum is a tremendous ruling.

Q What are you going to do about Guatemala? Guatemala. What are you going to do about Guatemala?

THE PRESIDENT: So, Guatemala gave us their word. We were going to sign a safe third agreement and then, all of a sudden, they backed up. They said it was their supreme court. I don’t believe that. But they use their supreme court as the reason they didn’t want to do it.

So we’ll either do tariffs or we’ll do something. We’re looking at something very severe with respect to Guatemala. I’ve already cut all payments; I did that a year ago. I cut all payments going to Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala. We used to send them $500 million for nothing. For nothing. They didn’t do anything except set up caravans.

So, Guatemala we’re going to take care of and it won’t even be tough. We’re going to do — we’re looking at a couple of different things. One of the things very heavy is, as you know, Mexico has put 6,000 people on that border.

Q Mr. President, what do you say at the — Robert Mueller, he said that he — that lying from your inves- —

THE PRESIDENT: Let me just tell you something.

Q — Mr. President, he says that lying —

THE PRESIDENT: I know, you’re always — you always have a question.

Q — he says that lying — he said that lying by White House aides and campaign aides —

THE PRESIDENT: You mean my White House aides lied?

Q They said that your White House —

THE PRESIDENT: What about his aides? What about — what about Mueller’s aides?

Q He said that White House aides and campaign aides lied and that your answers were generally untruthful. What do you say to that? He’s accusing you and your campaign of lying.

THE PRESIDENT: He didn’t say that at all. You’re untruthful when you ask —

Q He specifically said, “generally untruthful.”

THE PRESIDENT: You are untruthful. When you ask that question —

Q He completely said that.

THE PRESIDENT: When you ask that question, you’re untruthful. And you know who —

Q But quoting, “generally untruthful.”

THE PRESIDENT: — else is untruthful? You know who else is untruthful? His aides. And Weissmann was untruthful. And Weissmann got caught just like he did with Arthur Andersen, where he lost in the Supreme Court nine to nothing. His aides were very untruthful. And they put Mueller —

Q But were your aides lying and impeding the investigation, Mr. President?

THE PRESIDENT: — and they put Mueller — not at all. They put Mueller in a very bad positon. His aides put him in a very bad position.

And if you were ever truthful, you’d be able to write the truth.

Q Mr. President, have you called Boris Johnson? Have you called Boris Johnson?

THE PRESIDENT: No, I haven’t. No, but I’m very happy. I haven’t called Boris but I’m happy that he won. I’m very, very happy.

Q (Inaudible) indictment for Strzok and Page and the investigators that you are referring to?

THE PRESIDENT: So what happened with Strzok and Page, meaning the two lovers, it’s a disgrace because they had a lot of text messages, and Mueller illegally deleted those text messages. And they didn’t get too much into that because he forgo; he didn’t really know; he didn’t know too much. He didn’t know anything.

But Strzok and Page were texting. Don’t forget, they were the ones with the “just in case she should lose, we’re going to have an insurance policy.” This is the same Strzok and Page. So that was a very, very bad situation. What they did and what Mueller did — he deleted their text messages back and forth, probably thousands of them. That’s a serious problem. They shouldn’t have been allowed to do it.

Q How did Mueller affect the 2020 election? How did Mueller affect the 2020 election?

THE PRESIDENT: I think it’s going to help us because everyone sees now that this thing has been going on for so long. In all fairness to Mueller, this has gone on long before Mueller. This has gone on from sometime after we came down the escalator and I got great poll numbers. Because from the beginning, I was leading. And this really took place sometime right after we came down the escalator — the First Lady and myself. And I will tell you something: I think it’s going to have a huge negative impact on 2020 for the Democrats.

Remarks by President Trump at Turning Point USA’s Teen Student Action Summit 2019



Remarks by President Trump at Turning Point USA’s Teen Student Action Summit 2019

Marriott Marquis Washington
Washington, D.C.

11:34 A.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you.

AUDIENCE: USA! USA! USA!

THE PRESIDENT: So, let’s have a good time, right? (Applause.) Let’s have a good time.

I’m excited to be here today with thousands of proud, young American patriots. You’re great people. You’re great people. (Applause.) You’re the future. You’re the future.

On behalf of my entire administration, thank you to everyone at Turning Point USA’s Teen Student Action Summit. What a group. (Applause.) What a group. They don’t realize there’s more of you than there is of them. They just haven’t figured that out yet. (Applause.) They’ll understand. They’ll figure it out someday. They’re still trying to figure out what the hell happened. What happened? (Applause.) How did this happen?

You’ve come to our nation’s capital from cities and towns across America. You’ve given up a big part of your summer, which many young people are not willing to do, and we understand that too. But what you’re doing is fun and it’s important. So important.

You’ve paid and paved your own way to get here. And, in some cases, it wasn’t easy. And you’ve done it for all of us. You’ve done it for one simple reason: You are loyal to our nation, you are devoted to your fellow citizens, and you will always put America first. (Applause.)

I want to thank my great friend — and he’s a young friend; he’s a pretty young guy — Charlie Kirk. (Applause.) I said, “How old are you, Charlie?” He’s a young one. He gave me a number; I won’t say. But he’s younger than he even looks. But I want to thank Charlie. He’s an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He’s done an amazing job. He’s done something that is just incredible for somebody, really, of his age. You need tremendous talent to do what he’s done, building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. And I want to thank you, really, Charlie. Incredible job. (Applause.)

The young leaders here today are part of a movement unlike anything in the history of our nation. There’s never been anything like this. And the fake news doesn’t even talk about it because —

AUDIENCE: Booo —

THE PRESIDENT: No, but when I say it, they don’t correct me. They don’t say, “Oh, he gets a Pinocchio.” They can’t because it’s true. It’s true. You know, they can find fault with anything, but they never — they never talk about that because we won. You know, there have been some pretty good movements. And they won New Hampshire, or they won a state someplace. (Laughter.) But they didn’t win the whole ballgame.

And you saw what we won, and you could see it; we could feel it. We knew it was going to happen because it’s a movement about reclaiming your future, rebuilding your country, and restoring your destiny, and renewing the values that are the true source of American greatness. We lost those values, and we’re getting them back rapidly. We’re getting them back rapidly.

Just backstage, a gentleman — very rich gentleman, in this case — came up, sitting in one these rows, I assume. Yeah. There he is. He said, “Sir, thank you for saving our country.” (Applause.) I said, “Thank you very much.” And, you know, I said, “Thank you very much.” And I looked at Charlie and I said, “Charlie do you have any idea how many people say that?”

I gave the commencement address at the Air Force Academy recently, and at Annapolis the year before. (Applause.) And they said, “Sir, would you like to shake the hands of all the cadets?” I said, “How many are there?” “One thousand one hundred.” I said, “Yeah, that sounds okay.” (Applause.) I say, “Do other Presidents do it?” “Yes, they do.” “Do all of them?” “Yeah, they do.”

What they didn’t say is they start and then they peter out and they go back. Because it’s — it’s tough. It was really hot. That sun was beaming down. And I’m just one hand. And some of these guys are great athletes. And some of the women — they had some women in the class that were — their hands were very strong, okay? (Laughter.) And they’re all shaking. And, you know, they’re a little nervous, maybe; they’re meeting the President. They’re shaking strongly and — “Sir.” But, you know, with shaking 1,100 hands and saluting. We’re saluting, shaking, turning, spinning. They’re coming at all different directions. (Laughter.) I felt like a great fighter pilot. (Laughter.)

But I stood up there for the whole thing. I said, “There’s no way that other Presidents have done that.” He said, “No, no, they do it but they leave after about 50 or 60 people.” I said, “Why didn’t you tell me that?” But I’m glad I did it. (Laughter.) But I did the same thing — I did the same thing at Annapolis the year before. Great place. Just great. (Applause.) And I shook the hands of, I think, 1,011 at Annapolis. And it’s really something great.

But so many of these young, incredible people — they’re like you — so many of these young, incredible people, they come, “Sir, thank you for saving America.” “Sir, thank you for saving America.” “Sir, thank you for saving our country.” So many of them — it’s not rehearsed; it’s just — that’s what they feel.

And you know what? Somebody had to do what I did. It’s not pleasant. We have a deep state. We have bad people. We have sick people.

I watched, just this morning, this Tlaib — Tlaib.

AUDIENCE: Booo —

THE PRESIDENT: From Michigan, right? It’s a great state. We won Michigan. There is no way she stands for the values of the people of Michigan.

But I watched her this morning; she vicious. She’s like a crazed lunatic. She’s screaming. This is before she got into Congress. Who elected her? She’s screaming like a total lunatic at one of our rallies. It’s like I’m giving a little rally, and she starts screaming. And this was — this is not a sane person, folks, when you look at that. (Laughter.) And this is what we’re up against. You have some of that.

Now, the Democrats, I guess, are forced to embrace her. And I called it “AOC Plus 3.” Okay? AOC — “AOC Plus 3.” (Applause.) Not that AOC is a bargain, because she’s not. I mean, she’s no bargain. Look, I mean, I — we’ll go into it at some point. I’ll tell you all about AOC. I got more on AOC. (Applause.) AOC. AOC.

But it’s — you know, what’s going on with that Party having to embrace them. And your other friend from an incredible state, right? A state that I’m going to win: Minnesota. You know that one, right? (Applause.) And you know why I’m going to win the state? Because of her. I almost won it last time. We came within just about a point. That’s a very — because Minnesota is a very hard one for a Republican to win. And when we almost won it — one more night — I wanted to go there one more time. I said, “I’m telling you, “We’re going to win Minnesota.”

You know who thought I was going to win Minnesota? You know who thought I was going to win Michigan and Wisconsin and North Carolina? Bill Clinton. He was telling everybody, “You better be careful.” He told people — from what I hear, he said, “The one you don’t want to run against is Trump.” And they would say, “Why? Oh, no, that’s good. We want to run against…” “No, no, you don’t.” You know, I actually knew him pretty well. We got along very well until I decided to run for office. (Laughter.) We actually got along.

But they didn’t want to listen to him. But he was the only one with the instinct the rest didn’t have. So he came back and he said, “You know he’s doing very well in Michigan. You could have a problem.” They said, “No, don’t worry about Michigan. We haven’t lost Michigan in decades.” And he came back, he said, “You know…” — he was in Wisconsin or something — but he said he hears that I’m doing well in Wisconsin. They say, “Forget it. A Republican can’t win Wisconsin.” And then we won Wisconsin. Then he came back — (applause) — he came back.

And I say this with a certain old-time affection because I had a very good relationship with him before doing this. You know, now it’s a little harder for him to have a good relationship. But he said, “You don’t want to run against Trump. Don’t run against Trump.” And they were saying, “No, no, that’s okay. We like that.”

Remember, President Obama, “He will not win. He will not win.”

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Liar!

THE PRESIDENT: Okay, this is — he goes, “Liar.” (Laughter.) That’s — yeah. (Applause.) Hey, did Obama get a Pinocchio? That’s right, Obama said, “He will not win. He will not be your President.” The anger was unbelievable. You know, what? He’s right. He was a liar. Did you give Obama a Pinocchio, Washington Post? He said, “He will not win.” (Applause.)

AUDIENCE: Booo —

THE PRESIDENT: These papers — these papers are so bad.

So yesterday we had a story in one of the papers that I thought was good but they’re really not, you know, when you analyze it. There’s almost not too many of them that are. The wall. We’re building a lot of wall. But we — (applause) — well, let me just finish. But there are areas where they have walls that are falling down, walls that are in such bad shape. We’re trying to renovate as much as we can.

And we have a provision: We can renovate but we can’t build new. So we’re taking all these areas. And generally speaking, when you have an old wall that’s falling down, it’s in a better location for a wall. That’s why they had it there in the first place as opposed to an area that’s empty. You know, typically that will be true.

So these walls are old, they’re crumbling, they’re of no use. They’re falling down. So we rip it up, build brand new foundations, pour brand new, beautiful footings, and take a wall that’s two or three feet high, mostly laying on the ground, some of it only for cars – you know, to stop cars from cars from coming across. Just a metal spike.

So we’d rip it out; it would take about a minute. And we’d put in deep foundations seven feet deep, and we put in 30-foot bollards, and they’re loaded up with concrete. Because inside, you know, I like doing — one of the reasons they said, “But you said you’re going to build a concrete wall.” So actually, inside the steel we have — so we have both. We have steel and we have concrete. (Applause.)

And I was saving that for later because the only thing they could do is, “He’s building a steel wall. It’s not concrete.” “Oh, sorry about that, folks.” (Laughter.) You know. And you do have to have vision. It’s very important. You know, it’s — you can’t just have a blank wall. You have to have vision. It’s much better for the security to have the vision.

Anyway, so we’re building the wall. So they come out with saying, “Donald Trump has built almost no wall.” What a lie that is. And we’re building — (applause) — we’re building 50 miles here, 50 miles there. Fifty — all in the right locations, because there used to be walls but then we had to take them down.

In some cases, if they’re good enough, we’ll renovate it because we can do it for a lot less money. But generally, some of these walls are worthless. I mean, literally, you just drive right over them. They’re laying down on their side.

They gave me no credit. But if you read the story, they’ll say, “While he has renovated a lot of wall…” Well, that’s not even a renovation, let’s face it. That’s a brand new wall. It’s all brand new wall. It just shows you how dishonest this fake news is. And this is what we have to deal with. This is really what we have to deal with. But get used to it. Many of you are going to be in politics. Just get used to it, okay? Get used to it.

Together — is this true? — we believe in the American Constitution and we believe judges should interpret our Constitution as written. You’ll be seeing this. (Applause.) We believe in religious liberty, the right to free speech, and the right to keep and bear arms. (Applause.) Second Amendment. What a group.

AUDIENCE: USA! USA! USA!

THE PRESIDENT: Look, look. Look, they are in the process of trying to take your arms away. You have the Second Amendment. They will —

AUDIENCE: Booo —

THE PRESIDENT: They will do damage to the Second Amendment the likes of which nobody even thought of. That’s where they’re coming from. Just remember I said it. Hopefully they never get the chance. And that’s why the election coming up — I always said this is the most important election — 2016 — most important election that we’ve ever had. And it was certainly the coolest. That’s for sure. (Applause.) But it was, I believe, the most important election because our country was going wrong. It was going wrong.

And when you see all the incredible numbers coming up and all the success that we’re having, and all the fact that we’re respected all over the world. We have a really good man who’s going to be the Prime Minister of the UK now, Boris Johnson. (Applause.) Good man. He’s tough and he’s smart. They’re saying “Britain Trump.” They call him “Britain Trump.” And people are saying, “That’s a good thing.” They like me over there. That’s what they wanted. That’s what they need. (Applause.) That’s what they need. He’ll get it done. Boris is good. He’s going to do a good job.

I think Nigel is someplace in this audience. Where is Nigel? Where is he? Nigel Farage. He’s here someplace. I saw him. I said, “What is he doing here? He’s a little older than most of you.” Where is he? Nigel. Nigel. I’ll tell you what: He got 32 percent of the vote from nowhere, over in UK. Nigel — thank you, Nigel. (Applause.)

I said, “What’s Nigel doing here?” He’s a little older than you folks, but he did a great job. And I know he’s going to work well with Boris. They’re going to do some tremendous things.

But we believe in the American Dream and not a socialist nightmare that these people are trying to put on our shoulders. (Applause.)

And we know that strong nations must have strong borders. And we’re building a strong border against so much. You have no idea. Every time I announce, as an example, a section of wall, I get lawsuits. They sue me. You know who sues me? Congressmen. Congressmen. I get sued by Nancy Pelosi. We won that suit. Can you believe it? I won that. I won that. (Applause.)

We won a couple of them. But we have suits on the border. We had one judge — they always sue in the Ninth Circuit. You know what that means, right? They sue in the Ninth Circuit, which is sort of like an automatic victory. Although we did win one last week in the Ninth Circuit. Nobody can even believe it. Can you — you know what’s happening, right? Do you know what’s happening?

So, as of today — this is so important. There are those that say it’s the most important. I would say war and peace and security — that’s the most important. But they say the most important thing a President can do is the selection of Supreme Court justices, right? (Applause.) Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. We have two. Already, we have two. Some have gone a long time, and they haven’t had many. And they haven’t had any, in some cases. So we have two already. And they’re great, and they’re good.

But, you know, what people don’t talk about: I’ve just signed the 124th federal district judge — federal judges — under me. (Applause.) And within a couple of months, I’ll be up to 147. Think of that: 147. Because, normally, when you become President, you go in and you say, “Do I have any judges to appoint?” “No.” You know, they’re all — because it’s such an important thing.

Because these district judges — they’re the ones who do the trials. I mean, this is big stuff. And then you have Court of Appeals judges. Then you have the Supreme Court judges.

So we have two in the Supreme Court. We have many appeals court judges — many — that we’ll have appointed. The courts are a whole different thing.

But I was up to — I will be up to 147, not including the 2 Supreme Court justices. Now, percentage-wise, I blow everybody away except one person. One person I’ll never beat. You know who the one person is?
AUDIENCE: George Washington!

THE PRESIDENT: Who?

AUDIENCE: George Washington!

THE PRESIDENT: George Washington. He’s got 100 percent. George Washington. (Applause.)

But we’re going to have a tremendous percentage. And after six more years, it’ll go to a level that nobody will even be close. (Applause.)

But George Washington is hard to beat because he put in 100 percent. He was there first, so he had (inaudible). (Laughter.) But I have many more than George Washington. Remember that. George Washington didn’t put in too many, but he had certainly the highest percentage. He’ll never — that will be a record that will never be broken.

We believe that every young American should love our country, honor our history, and always respect what? Our great American flag. (Applause.)

How about the Betsy Ross? You know, isn’t that terrible, where they’re trying to take your heritage away from you like that? Isn’t that terrible?

AUDIENCE: Booo —

THE PRESIDENT: Isn’t that terrible? And then you see the picture of President Obama with the same exact flag up. He should have taken it down. Why didn’t he take it down? It’s, really, very unfair what they do. They try and demean and belittle, and they’re very good at it. They’re better at that than they are at politics. They’re better than that than they are at policy.

Look at their policy. They want open borders, which means crime, which means drug —

AUDIENCE: Booo —

THE PRESIDENT: — drugs and human trafficking, which is a phenomena that you would think is thousands of years old, and that would have been their prime. No, their prime is now because of the Internet. Women — mostly women — are being trafficked. And they go not only in this country, all over the world. It’s never been like this before. Human trafficking — they snatch women and they traffic women and they sell women.

And we can’t get the Democrats to even give us a modicum of the money we need at the border, especially for the wall. I’m taking money from here and there and there and there. Let’s take it from here. We have all these different sources coming from all over the place because they won’t approve it.

And five years ago, they all wanted it. Six years ago, seven years ago, they all voted for it. They never got it built, but they all voted for it. And today, they make it so tough. You have to see. I’m doing everything I can. And we’re doing well with it. But there should just be one nice, fat sum where I can get the best four or five contractors — not worry about “I gave it out, but I have a lawsuit. And if the lawsuit happens, I have to undo it.”

How do you give a contract out where you have a contractor and he’s going to build 67 miles of wall — we have one case — but we’re being sued, our funding source, because we’re taking it from a certain area? And so we’re being sued. So we have to wait for the suit. I mean, how would you like to be building like this? It’s not good. It’s not good.

But we’re getting it done anyway. But they should say, “It’s not working without the wall.” You got to have — when they bum-rush you — they did that last week; they rushed in, a tremendous, large number of people. By the way, you know why they’re coming up, right? Because we have created the strongest economy in the history of our country. So they’re coming up because they want a piece of the economy. (Applause.) They’re not coming up for safety and this and that.

Do you ever see these people? They fly their flag. They come up from Guatemala — who, by the way, went back on their word to us. They were all set to sign a safe third agreement, and then today, or yesterday, they announced they can’t do it because they got a supreme court ruling — their supreme court. Right? They got a — in other words, they didn’t want to sign it.

So they’re supposed to sign what’s called a safe third. That’s a good thing for us, okay? That’s all I have to tell you. And they went back. So we’re going to do either tariffs or we’re going to do a form of tax, or we’re going to use our ban. You know, we — people don’t realize we won the ban.

You know, I saw one of the journalists — we’ll call him — who happens to be back there, I believe. One of — look at those cameras. Isn’t that terrible, or good or whatever?

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Fake news!

AUDIENCE: Booo —

THE PRESIDENT: Look at all those cameras. Wouldn’t it be great if they told the truth? (Applause.) They have such a low credibility. They started off very high, and then I ran and their credibility is so low you wouldn’t believe it. But that’s okay. But wouldn’t it be nice if they — think of it — think of it: What would be — what would be if we had an honest — I don’t want a media that’s for me or — I just want an honest media.

So we have our best poll numbers today that we’ve ever had. Can you imagine how good our poll numbers — with all the things that we’ve done — how good our numbers would be if we had just a fair media?

AUDIENCE MEMBER: One hundred percent!

THE PRESIDENT: Because they can take any — (laughs) — he goes, “A hundred percent.” (Applause.) Who said that? Stand up. Huh? Yeah. He goes, “One hundred percent.” And, you know, what? I like your long hair. It’s very nice, actually. (Applause.) Good. Thank you. Thank you. That’s funny.

So, above all else, we know this: That, in America, we don’t worship government, we worship God. (Applause.) Right? (Applause.)

AUDIENCE: One squad under God! One squad under God! One squad under God!

THE PRESIDENT: No, I’m not disavowing that. They’d like me — “Would you disavow that?” No, thank you. (Laughter and applause.) The squad. No, it’s very good. Very true.

Remarks by Vice President Pence Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing ...Kennedy Space Center, FL



Remarks by Vice President Pence Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing ... Kennedy Space Center, FL


Kennedy Space Center
Florida

1:30 P.M. EDT

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Governor Ron DeSantis, First Lady Casey, Administrator Bridenstine, Director Cabana, General Selva, distinguished members of Congress, Marillyn Hewson, the dedicated men and women of NASA, and especially Rick Armstrong and the members of the Neil Armstrong family, and Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin: It is my great honor to be here with all of you today. (Applause.)

It’s great to be back here at the John F. Kennedy Space Center, as Vice President and as Chairman of the National Space Council, with my wonderful wife Karen, to celebrate — (applause) — to celebrate with all of you the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing a half a century ago that will be remembered forever. (Applause.)

And I’ve been looking forward to this day, but allow me to bring greetings from another great space enthusiast and a great champion of American leadership in space. I begin today by bringing greetings from the 45th President of the United States of America, President Donald Trump. (Applause.)

Today, our nation pays tribute to the three brave astronauts who sat atop a 360-foot rocket that lifted off from Pad 39A 50 years ago this week — two of whom walked on the moon 50 years ago today.

We also gather to pay tribute to the nearly 400,000 Americans — engineers, technicians, designers — whose sacrifices and dedication made it possible for Apollo 11 to complete what another president called “the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure upon which mankind has ever embarked.” Let’s hear it for all those who supported these three brave astronauts 50 years ago. (Applause.)

When President Kennedy challenged the nation in 1961 to put a man on the moon and return him safely to the Earth before the decade was out, it’s important to remember that our country was not yet ready to meet that challenge.

We didn’t have the rockets or the launch pads, or the spacesuits or the lander. We hadn’t even invented many of the materials or tools that we would need. Not only did we not have what we needed, we didn’t even know what we needed.

But President Kennedy summarized that epic endeavor in one simple sentence: “We choose to go to the moon.”

And make no mistake about it: The moon was a choice. An American choice. (Applause.) And like every time the American people make up their mind, once that decision was made, American ingenuity, grit, and determination — the achievement was inevitable.

The only challenges that remained were challenges of engineering and science. The moon didn’t come easily, and it didn’t come without costs. And it did not come without grave danger or without sacrifice.

To this day, Americans grieve the loss of three brave astronauts of Apollo 1 who were lost in a fire on the launchpad in January of 1967. And we think of them and their families even today.

The risks for Apollo were so great, the odds were so long, that many feared that even if our astronauts made it to the moon, they might not make it back.

In fact, history records that President Nixon prepared a speech in the event of a tragedy, where he would explain to the nation that the mission had failed.

But, of course, the mission didn’t fail. After all — with 400,000 men and women behind the mission at NASA, and with the hearts and prayers of the American people — how could it fail? (Applause.)

For at the controls of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module, known as Eagle, stood two great Americans: Mission Commander Neil Armstrong and a man who is with us today, Lunar Module pilot Buzz Aldrin. (Applause.) And circling overhead in lunar orbit was Command Module pilot Michael Collins. (Applause.)

Just picture it: Fifty years ago today, at almost exactly this hour, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were about halfway into their powered descent on the final leg of their landing on the moon. There they were, standing beside one another in a capsule not much bigger than a couple of telephone booths, just minutes from touchdown.

They thought they were ready for every contingency. After all, as Buzz told me just a few days ago, they had spent two years intensively training for this moment, and they’d run almost 600 simulated landings all designed to be more difficult than the real thing.

Eagle had just finished its rollover to position itself for final approach, when all of the sudden, Neil Armstrong called out to Houston that Eagle had a “1202 Alarm.” The problem was nobody on board or in Houston had any idea what a “1202 Alarm” was.

Eagle’s flight computer was overloading. Not only could they not see the moon out their windows; they couldn’t know for certain how far they were from the surface. Not a good way to fly.

And yet, how calm they were. Working with the team back here on Earth, they quickly resolved the problem without betraying the slightest anxiety. People all over the world were watching, with no idea that anything had gone wrong. That, my friends, is what they used to call the “Right Stuff.” (Laughter.)

You know, there’s a reason Neil Armstrong, as well, was called the “Ice Commander” in his day. When the original landing area turned out to be so full of large boulders that landing there would have doomed the mission and the crew, history records that Neil Armstrong calmly took control of the Lunar Module, skimmed along the top of the surface of the moon in search for a safe place to touch down. And by the time he found a safe spot, known to all of us as Tranquility Base, Armstrong and Aldrin had only 17 seconds of fuel remaining.

Like every one of my generation, I remember that day. Six hundred million people around the world were watching their TVs and listening to their radios, waiting with admiration, anxiety, and wonder. And I was one of them — a little boy sitting in front of our black-and-white television in the basement of our home in Indiana.

When those first snowy images of Neil Armstrong stepping off the bottom rung of the ladder beamed down to Earth at 10:56 p.m. on Sunday, July 20, 1969, they made an indelible mark — not just on my imagination, but on the imagination of my generation and every generation to come.

It was a moment so rich in meaning that, upon hearing Neil Armstrong’s first call from Tranquility Base, even the era’s greatest newsman, Walter Cronkite, could only shake his head and utter two words: “Oh, boy.”

All at once, the nation held its breath — as through the crackling broadcast we listened to, we heard Neil Armstrong use those immortal words: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

In that moment, the men of Apollo 11 did more than help expand our understanding of Creation, and they did more than win the Space Race. They brought together our nation. And for one brief moment, all the people of the world were truly one.

Now, true to their creed, astronauts have never liked the idea of being called heroes. Yet for all they did — and for all the risks they took — if Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Mike Collins are not heroes, then there are no heroes.

We honor these men today, and America will always honor our Apollo astronauts. (Applause.) They were heroes all. (Applause.) We honor the men of Apollo 11 by remembering their epic voyage and telling their story. But we also honor them by continuing the work they so nobly and courageously advanced in American space exploration.

Apollo 11 was followed by five more successful moon missions culminating in the final historic journey of Apollo 17 — America’s last trip to the moon. As we honor our Apollo 11 astronauts, we are also honored today to be joined by Apollo 17 astronaut Harrison Schmidt. Thank you for your courageous service. (Applause.)

As Harrison and I have discussed about his mission, while the last words spoken on the moon might not be as well-known as the first words, his fellow astronaut Gene Cernan said more perhaps than anyone could’ve known at the time. It was a challenge to our time.

As he stepped off the moon on December 17, 1972, Gene — he said these words, and I quote, “As I take man’s last steps on the moon for some time to come, history will record…that America’s challenge of today has forged man’s destiny of tomorrow.” And then he ended by saying, “We leave the moon as we came and, God willing…we shall soon return with peace and hope for all mankind.” (Applause.) Those were words of challenge in 1972.

And in our time, as President Trump said, this generation of Americans knows that it is “America’s destiny to be…the leader amongst nations on our adventure into the great unknown.”

And standing before you today, I am proud to report, at the direction of the President of the United States of America, America will return to the moon within the next five years, and the next man and the first woman on the moon will be American astronauts. (Applause.) We’re going back.

After more than 45 years, where one administration after another chose to limit America’s space program to low Earth orbit, President Donald Trump has changed all that.

Early in this administration, the President revived the National Space Council within the White House to coordinate all space-related activities across the government, including matters related to national security. And we’ve been hard at work.

The Space Council has helped bring together skilled leaders in business and industry to revive and renew America’s commitment to human space exploration. And I’m pleased that many members of our Users’ Advisory Group for the Space Council are with us today for this historic occasion. Join me in welcoming these dedicated and distinguished Americans. (Applause.)

The President also signed Space Policy Directive 1, “challenging NASA to lead the return of Americans to the moon, send the first Americans to Mars, and enable humans to expand and deepen our reach across the solar system.” It is our mission.

And as I speak to you today, I’m proud to report we’re investing in new rockets, new spaceships. We’re working with private companies around this country to develop the new technologies of the future by unleashing the burgeoning private space industry that dots the landscape of this historic center and this nation.

And within the next year, we will once again send American astronauts into space on American rockets, from American soil. (Applause.)

Already, we’ve given our human exploration missions a newfound sense of urgency not seen in more than a generation.

And, last year, NASA and American innovators began an accelerated design process for both the lunar orbital gateway and the lunar surface base — all of which we will need to support Americans on the moon and to train and prepare to send Americans to Mars.

And while we’ve made great strides in advancing the President’s bold vision for space — unlike in years past, we will have the budgets to match it. And that’s why I’m especially grateful today to be joined by some of the greatest champions of American leadership in space in the Congress of the United States: House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, Congressman Robert Aderholt, Congressman Brian Babin, Congressman Bill Posey, and other distinguished members of Congress. Would you please rise and allow us to express our appreciation for your strong support of renewed American leadership? (Applause.)

With strong bipartisan support, this President has already signed into law the largest NASA budget ever. And on this historic occasion, I’m told that we’ve also achieved a critical milestone in our effort to go to the moon and beyond.

Today, thanks to the hard work of the men of NASA — men and women of NASA and of American industry, the Orion crew vehicle for the Artemis 1 mission is complete and ready to begin preparations for its historic first flight. (Applause.)

In the coming years, American astronauts will return to the moon aboard the Orion, and they’ll return with new ambitions. We will spend weeks and months, not days and hours, on the lunar surface. This time we’re going to the moon to stay — and to explore and develop new technologies. We will extract water from ice in the permanently shadowed craters of the South Pole. We will fly on a new generation of spacecraft that will enable us to reach Mars, not in years but in months.

Americans are leading in space once again. And today we’re reminded — we’re reminded how American leadership 50 years ago, and the accomplishment of Apollo 11, inspired our nation. As the President said, it “ignited our sense of adventure” and “steeled our belief that no dream is impossible, no matter how lofty or challenging.”

And as Buzz Aldrin said today, in his words, “Looking back, landing on the moon wasn’t just our job, it was a historic opportunity to prove to the world America’s can-do spirit.” (Applause.)

But as we lead in human space exploration again, we’ll carry not only American ingenuity and pride, but most importantly, we’ll carry America’s ideals into the vast expanse of space — ideals of freedom and liberty.

Apollo 11 is the only event in the 20th century that stands a chance of being widely remembered in the 30th century.

A thousand years from now, July 20, 1969 will likely be a date that will live in the minds and imaginations of men and women, as long as there are men and women to remember — across this world, across this solar system, and beyond.

So, today, we remember the heroes of Apollo 11 and all the heroes that supported them in their mission — some 400,000 Americans.

But today, we also reaffirm our commitment to “unlock the mysteries of space” and to lead. And as we continue on this American journey, we go with the same resolve and determination of those who have gone before. And we go with faith.

Faith in the courage of this new generation of astronauts — men and women of the character and caliber of those who have gone before. They’re remarkable pioneers who will carry American leadership into space.

Faith in the ingenuity of the men and women of NASA and all of those across the American space enterprise, whose creativity and tireless efforts in the days ahead will match that of their forebears who created and invented new ways to explore and expanded human understanding with American leadership.

And finally, I believe, as we go forward — and as millions of Americans believe in their hearts, and have throughout the generations — that we’ll go forward with faith that as those pioneers put on the spacesuits and climb aboard the rockets, that we’ll believe that even if they rise on the wings of the dawn, even if they go up to heavens, that even there His hand will guide them, and His right hand will hold them fast. And that’ll be our prayer.

Today, we mark the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. We celebrate the heroic astronauts who accomplished that extraordinary feat in human history — and all those who supported them.

And today, we resolve, for the sake of all they accomplished, that America will lead in space once again. And this nation will once again astonish the world with the heights we reach and the wonders we achieve.

So may God bless the crew of Apollo 11 and all who supported them on their historic journey. May God bless this new generation of pioneers and all who will support them. And may God continue to bless the United States of America. (Applause.) Thank you.

President Trump Delivers Remarks on Citizenship and the Census






President Trump Delivers Remarks on Citizenship and the Census

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much everyone. Are you a citizen of the United States of America? “Oh, gee, I’m sorry, I just can’t answer that question.” And that’s after spending billions and billions of dollars. There used to be a time when you could answer questions like that very easily. There used to be a time when you could proudly declare, “I am a citizen of the United States.”

Now they’re trying to erase the very existence of a very important word and a very important thing: citizenship. They’re even coming after the Pledge of Allegiance in Minnesota. I’m proud to be a citizen. You’re proud to be a citizen. The only people who are not proud to be citizens are the ones who are fighting us all the way about the word, “citizen.”

Today I’m here to say we are not backing down on our effort to determine the citizenship status of the United States population. I stand before you to outline new steps my administration is taking to ensure that citizenship is counted so that we know how many citizens we have in the United States. Makes sense?

We will defend the right of the American people to know the full facts about the population size of citizens and non-citizens in America. It is essential that we have a clear breakdown of the number of citizens and non-citizens that make up the U.S. populations. Imperative.

Knowing this information is vital to formulating sound public policy, whether the issue is healthcare, education, civil rights, or immigration. We must have a reliable count of how many citizens, non-citizens, and illegal aliens are in our country.

The Department of Commerce sensibly decided to include a citizenship question in the 2020 Census, as has been done many, many times throughout the history of the United States.

Unfortunately, this effort was delayed by meritless litigation. As shocking as it may be, far-left Democrats in our country are determined to conceal the number of illegal aliens in our midst. They probably know the number is far greater, much higher than anyone would have believed before. Maybe that’s why they fight so hard.

This is part of a broader left-wing effort to erode the rights of the American citizen. And it’s very unfair to our country.

The Supreme Court ultimately affirmed our right to ask the citizenship question. And, very strongly, it was affirmed. But the Supreme Court ruled that we must provide further explanation that would have produced even more litigation and considerable time delays.

The case is already in three federal district courts that have been, to be totally honest, extremely unfriendly to us. These delays would have prevented us from completing the census on time. It’s deeply regrettable, but it will not stop us from collecting the needed information — and I think even in greater detail and more accurately. Therefore, we are pursuing a new option to ensure a complete and timely count of the non-citizen population.

Today, I will be issuing an executive order to put this very plan into effect immediately. I’m hereby ordering every department and agency in the federal government to provide the Department of Commerce with all requested records regarding the number of citizens and non-citizens in our country. They must furnish all legally accessible records in their possession immediately.

We will utilize these vast federal databases to gain a full, complete, and accurate count of the non-citizen population, including databases maintained by the Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration.

We have great knowledge in many of our agencies. We will leave no stone unturned. The Census Bureau projected that using previously available records, it could determine citizenship for 90 percent of our population or more.

With today’s executive order, which eliminates long-standing obstacles to data sharing, we’re aiming to count everyone. Ultimately, this will allow us to have an even more complete count of citizens than through asking the single question alone. It will be, we think, far more accurate.

The Census Bureau can use this information, along with information collected through the questionnaire, to create the official census. In other words, as a result of today’s executive order, we will be able to ensure the 2020 Census generates an accurate count of how many citizens, non-citizens, and illegal aliens are in the United States of America. Not too much to ask.

This will greatly inform a wide array of public policy decisions. This information is also relevant to administering our elections. Some states may want to draw state and local legislative districts based upon the voter-eligible population.

Indeed, the same day the Supreme Court handed down the census decision, it also said it would not review certain types of districting decisions, which could encourage states to make such decisions based on voter eligibility.

With today’s order, we will collect all of the information we need to conduct an accurate census and to make responsible decisions about public policy, voting rights, and representation in Congress.

In everything we do, we will faithfully represent the people of the United States of America.

I would like now to introduce Attorney General Bill Barr to the podium. Thank you. Thank you, Bill. (Applause.)

ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR: Good evening. Thank you, Mr. President. And congratulations on today’s executive order, which will ensure that we finally have an accurate understanding of how many citizens and non-citizens live in our country.

As the Supreme Court recognized, it would be perfectly lawful for the federal government to ask on the census whether individuals are citizens of the United States. And it’s entirely reasonable to want to know how many citizens and non-citizens there are in the United States.

In fact, the federal government has routinely asked questions relating to citizenship ever since the 1820s. But while the Supreme Court correctly recognized that it would be entirely appropriate to include citizenship questions on the census, it nevertheless held that the Commerce Department did not adequately explain its decisions for doing so on the 2020 Census — because, as the Supreme Court recognized, the defect in the Commerce Department’s decision was curable with a better record.

The President asked me to work with Secretary Ross to determine whether there remained a viable path for including a citizenship question on the census. I did so.

In my view, the government has ample justification to inquire about citizenship status on the census, and could plainly provide rationales for doing so that would satisfy the Supreme Court. And therefore, there is no question that a new decision to add the question would ultimately survive legal review.

The problem is that any new decision would be subject to immediate challenge as a new claim in the three ongoing district court cases. In addition, there are injunctions currently in place that forbid adding the question. There is simply no way to litigate these issues and obtain relief from the current injunctions in time to implement any new decision without jeopardizing our ability to carry out the census, which we’re not going to do. We’re not going to jeopardize our ability to carry out the census.

So as a practical matter, the Supreme Court’s decision closed all paths to adding the question to the 2020 census. Put simply, the impediment was not — it was a logistical impediment, not a legal one. We simply cannot complete the litigation in time to carry out the census.

One other point on this: Some in the media have been suggesting, in the hysterical mode of the day, that the administration has been planning to add the citizenship question to the census by executive fiat without regard to contrary court orders or what the Supreme Court might say. This has been based on rank speculation and nothing more.

As should be obvious, there has never been under cons- — this has never been under consideration. We have always accepted that any new decision to add a citizenship question to the census would be subject to judicial review.

Turning to today, I applaud the President for recognizing in his executive order that including a question on the census is not the only way to obtain this vital information. The course the President has chosen today will bring unprecedented resources to bear on determining how many citizens and non-citizens are in our country, and will yield the best data the government has had on citizenship in many decades. That information will be used for countless purposes, as the President explained in his remarks today.

For example, there is a current dispute over whether illegal aliens can be included for apportionment purposes. Depending on the resolution of that dispute, this data may be relevant to those considerations. We will be studying this issue.

Congratulations again, Mr. President, on taking this effective action.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much, everybody. Thank you, Bill. (Applause.) Thank you very much.

President Trump on social media bias: ‘They’re playing with a lot of minds’






President Trump on social media bias: ‘They’re playing with a lot of minds’

President Trump lashed out at social media “censorship” and “bias” Thursday and threatened legislation if Silicon Valley doesn’t change its ways.

“I am directing my administration to explore all regulatory and legislation solutions to protect free speech and the free speech rights of all Americans — that’s you people in this room,” he said at a “social media summit” at the White House.

“We hope to see transparency, more accountability and more freedom — that’s on both sides,” he continued.

Trump invited a host of right-wing media and online personalities to the summit, including Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk, Fox News’ Diamond and Silk, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe and Lila Rose, the founder of anti-abortion organization Live Action.

Representatives from Facebook, Google and Twitter were not invited.

The president accused them of having an anti-conservative prejudice.

“We have terrible bias. We have censorship like no one has any understanding, nobody can believe,” he said. “They’re playing with a lot of minds and they’re playing unfairly.”

But he called the invitees “online journalists and influencers” and said they are “challenging the media gatekeepers and corporate censors to bring the truth to the American people.”

Trump, who has 61.9 million followers on Twitter, touted the summit on the messaging site earlier Thursday, saying a “big subject” will be the “tremendous dishonesty, bias, discrimination and suppression practiced by certain companies.”

“The Fake News is not as important, or as powerful, as Social Media. They have lost tremendous credibility since that day in November, 2016, that I came down the escalator with the person who was to become your future First Lady,” he said in one of several tweets.

The president suggested that the tech companies are putting the brakes on his and other conservatives’ social media feeds.

Democrats panned the “social media summit” saying they haven’t seen evidence that ­conservative voices are being ­silenced.

“If someone wants to show me some empirical data, instead of some alt-right member’s paranoid claims, I’d appreciate it. In the meantime, it would be great if President Trump would get serious about antitrust,” Rep. David Cicilline of Rhode Island, who is investigating the conduct of tech companies, said in a statement.

In a light moment, Trump remarked about his critics who call him out for misspellings in his tweets.

“I’m actually a good speller, but the fingers aren’t as fast as the brain,” he said.

Awesome to see our Great Military on display. We should see more of it. It's going to one of the best 4th of July celebrations that Americans has had the chance to take part in in the past century. I do believe that it'll rank right up there and maybe even surpass the first 4th of July celebration which took place right after WW2 back in 1946. What a great time to be alive and better yet, what a great time to be an American. From me and all that have served and all which are American citizens and American patriots I do believe I can speak for us all when I say, thank you pres Trump.

HISTORIC....US President Donald Trump has become the first US president to step into North Korea






US President Donald Trump has become the first US president to step into North Korea

Donald Trump became the first sitting American president to set foot in North Korea, briefly crossing the border in the Demilitarized Zone after meeting the country’s leader Kim Jong Un for the third time.


SEOUL, South Korea — Taking an unprecedented step onto North Korean soil, President Donald Trump announced Sunday that Washington and Pyongyang will relaunch stalled nuclear talks during an extraordinary last-minute meeting with Kim Jong Un.

Side-by-side with Kim in the heavily-fortified demilitarized zone, Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to cross the 1953 armistice line separating North and South Korea, then joined Kim for a roughly 50-minute meeting.




Commander In Chief walking bravely 'solo' while Kim still had his security around him......

This was an 'IMPRESSIVE' Move by Potus and signaled 'BRAVERY' and "TRUST" which Kim noted immediately!.... Potus spoke volumes in that walk solo that not only Kim understood but every N.Korean soldier understood!

No other American President had the courage to go behind enemy lines. Trump is a gift from God. Our POTUS has great big Cohones. Titanium ones.

That's my fierce, fearless President and his wonderful, beautiful wife, the First Lady of the United States! Trump is a sincere caring man.
I do not understand people who say they cannot understand Melania when she talks. There is no problem understanding one single word that lady speaks. Those remarks are just launched attacks and are meaningless. She is magnificent. Beautiful inside and out.
When Trump worked to build his own business, everybody loved him. As soon as he wants to help rebuild the country, they all hate him. Figure that one out.
I love them as a couple. They are both wonderful human beings. We couldn't be luckier to have him as our President. I'm very very proud that Mr Donald Trump is our President and just as proud of our first lady. So beautiful wise and caring. God bless them and their families.

President Trump tweets Iran made 'big mistake' after shooting down US drone




Trump tweets Iran made 'big mistake' after shooting down US drone

President Trump tweeted Thursday that Iran made a “VERY BIG MISTAKE” by shooting down a U.S. spy drone in the already tense oil-rich region.Hours earlier, U.S. officials said an Iranian surface-to-air missile shot down the unmanned military surveillance drone. “IRANIAN REPORTS THAT THE AIRCRAFT WAS OVER IRAN ARE FALSE,” the U.S. Central Command said in a statement. “THIS WAS AN UNPROVOKED ATTACK ON A U.S. SURVEILLANCE ASSET IN INTERNATIONAL AIRSPACE.”

Fortunately, the U.S. Navy “flight crew” of this Triton was operating it from Naval Air Station Jacksonville, in Florida, with ground crews in the Middle East for launch, recovery and maintenance. The Tritons have a lot of automatic features but they don’t fly themselves except in back-up mode.

Still, the unprovoked attack on the U.S. Navy Triton was unquestionably an escalation by Iran.

The Triton was on the look-out for Iranian naval attacks, and it was guarding commercial shipping, US and allied naval vessels. The Triton is not your backyard drone. It’s really an unmanned plane derived from the U.S. Air Force RQ-4 Global Hawk and optimized for maritime work. The MQ-4 Triton has a wingspan of 130 feet and at 32,000 lbs., it weighs as much as a city bus or Class 7 truck.

Was the Triton in international airspace? Probably. The Triton didn’t need to loop over Iran’s land mass to carry out its overwater mission.

And get this. Triton is unarmed. This surveillance asset posed absolutely no threat of any kind to Iran. Except, of course, for revealing Iran’s naval activity.

More than any other single factor, Iran’s military activity is breaking apart the 2015 nuclear deal. Iran has acted foolishly, again.

Claiming the Triton shoot-down is yet another sign that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard under the direct command of the Ayatollah is spoiling for a fight.

This shoot-down and Iran’s celebration of it will help the Trump administration make the case with Great Britain, France and Germany that Iran can’t be trusted.

Aerial surveillance is already making a difference. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has overruled her foreign minister and acknowledged “strong evidence” of Iran’s involvement in the tanker shipping attacks, according to Germany’s Deutsche Welle newspaper on June 18.

So the Triton, and its surveillance team-mates are doing their job well.

People are lining up for President Trump's event on Tuesday





People are lining up for President Trump's event on Tuesday.

People are camping out and waiting in line to get into the Amway Center to see President Donald Trump speak live and kick-off his re-election campaign.

Ticketed supporters will be allowed in on a first-come, first-serve basis, according to the Trump campaign.

“It’s like 30 hours, but it’ll be worth it,” said Gary Ruot, Trump supporter, about camping out for the event.

“We know that there’s gonna be a lot of people here, so we decided to get here early and we’re hoping to get really close and close as possible as we can get to Trump,” said Nathan Gunn, Trump supporter.

“We’re gonna glamp, because we’re at a hotel,” she said.

Galez and her four sisters drove up from Miami, but they got a hotel and are taking turns sitting in line.

Galvez says the dedication will pay off when she sees Trump.

“The whole experience, I hear it’s fantastic,” she said.

Nathan Gunn is only 16 years old, but he turn’s 18 just in time to vote in 2020.

He’s excited to hear the President’s message.

“I hope to just experience this with all the people here and get to know more people and basically hear what Trump has planned for 2020,” Gunn said.

But these Trump fans are in for a rough 24 hours.

Rain and heat are in the forecast.

“Especially our out-of-towners who are not familiar with the heat and humidity,” said Rich Wales, Orlando Interim Fire Chief.

Orlando emergency responders are expecting a busy day ahead.

“In the event of an emergency, Orlando fire department will be onsite. We’ll have personal, paramedics, firefighters inside the venue, as well as outside the venue,” he said.

Supporters say they’re in it for the long haul.

“Rain or shine, we’re going to stay here no matter what,” Ruot said.

Doors open at the Amway Center on Tuesday at 5p.m.

For those who can’t make it inside, the Trump campaign is hosting a block party across the street from the arena complete with food, live music and big screens to watch the rally live.

Trump to announce re-election bid at Amway Center


ORLANDO, Fla. - More than 40 hours before President Donald Trump will announce his re-election bid in Orlando, supporters started lining up outside the Amway Center.

Eight Trump supporters started camping out Monday morning, with the first one showing up at 2:30 a.m. The rally is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Tuesday.


Gary Beck, a Trump supporter from Panama City, was the first in line.

"There's going to be a bunch of people, and it's going to be pretty intense," Beck said. "The electricity is going to be high. It's time for America to get back on its feet and be made better than it's ever been before."

Trump tweeted Monday that the rally "looks to be setting records," with more than 100,000 ticket requests. The Amway Center seats 20,000.

"We are building large movie screens outside to take care of everybody," Trump tweeted.

The visit marks Trump's first campaign event in Orlando since he ended his 2016 presidential campaign with a "Thank You Tour" stop at the Central Florida Fairgrounds.

Trump's last visit to the Orlando area was in October 2018 when he spoke at the International Association of Chiefs of Police at the Orange County Convention Center.

Ticket requests for the event have quadrupled the capability of the Amway Center, which holds 20,000 people. The president said in a tweet last week the event will be “the hottest of them all,” with 74,000 ticket requests already made for the event. He upped that number to 100,000 in a tweet Monday morning.

“Orlando rally entry is on a first-come, first-serve basis, so a ticket doesn’t necessarily guarantee entry," McEnany said in a statement to News 6 partner Florida Today.

Campaign security and U.S. Secret Service will close the entrance once the building reaches capacity, according to Amway Center.

Viewing outside Amway Center

"There will be screens outside the venue to watch the rally once capacity is reached,” McEnany said in her statement, which also noted that a "Trump tailgater" would be held outside starting at 10 a.m.

What not to bring

Leave your laser pointers and air horns at home. There is a list of items attendees are asked not to bring into the venue. Click here for the full list.

Timeline

Doors to the Amway Center open at 4 p.m. and the event starts at 8 p.m.

Parking

Parking around the Amway Center will be extremely limited due to security for the event. Attendees are encouraged to car pool, rideshare and take advantage of public transportation. Find more on that later on in the story.

Parking in city-owned garages will only be available for purchase on site on the day of the event on a first-come, first-served basis, according to the Amway Center.

Sunrail

SunRail will operate its normal service schedule until 10 p.m. Tuesday. After 10 p.m., SunRail will operate three northbound and three southbound trains departing from the Church Street Station.

President Trump says former ICE acting director and Fox News contributor Tom Homan is coming back to the White House as a 'border czar.'






Trump says Tom Homan is returning to White House


President Trump says former ICE acting director and Fox News contributor Tom Homan is coming back to the White House as a 'border czar.'

The president said that Homan would take a “border czar” position and would report directly to him.

“He’ll be a border czar, he’ll be very much involved with the border, he’ll be reporting directly to me, he’ll be probably be working out of the White House but probably spending a lot of time at the border,” Trump said. “He’s a good man. Done a good job.”
Homan served as the acting director of ICE in the Trump administration in 2017 before he joined Fox News Channel as a contributor in August 2018.

Trump also said he was not committed to nominating Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan to take the job full time.

“He is doing a very nice job, we’re going to see, I’ve got to get used to him, because its a very important thing to me, the border,” he said.

Trump noted that he was bringing in other “tough” people to handle immigration, such as Mark Morgan to lead ICE and Ken Cuccinelli at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.

“Ken Cuccinelli just took over, he’s fantastic, he’s as tough as you get, he’s smart,” Trump said.

Happy Birthday President Trump, the best President our country has ever had.




HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRESIDENT TRUMP!!!!


The 45th President of the United States
Donald J. Trump

"We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will Make America Great Again!"

- President Donald J. Trump

Donald J. Trump is the very definition of the American success story, setting the standards of excellence in his business endeavors, and now, for the United States of America.

A graduate of the Wharton School of Finance, President Trump has always dreamed big and pushed the boundaries of what is possible his entire career, devoting his life to building business, jobs and the American Dream. This was brought to life by a movement he inspired in the people of America when he announced his candidacy for President of the United States in June 2015.

This movement would ultimately lead to one of the most unique Presidential campaigns in history. Ever the leader, Trump followed no rule book and took his message, “Make America Great Again” directly to the people. Campaigning in historically democratic states and counties across the country, Trump was elected President in November 2016 in the largest electoral college landslide for a Republican in 28 years.

President Trump is working hard to implement his ‘America First’ platform, continuing his promise to the American people to lower taxes, repeal and replace Obamacare, end stifling regulations, protect our borders, keep jobs in our country, take care of our veterans, strengthen our military and law enforcement, and renegotiate bad trade deals, creating a government of, by and for the people.

He is making America First, again, restoring our nation’s faith, ushering in a bright, new future now and for generations to come.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she would like to see President Trump “in prison” during a contentious meeting with senior Democrats over whether to launch impeachment proceedings, a report said.

Pelosi was speaking with House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler at the meeting with Dems when the two clashed over whether to allow Nadler’s committee to start an impeachment inquiry, according to Politico.

“I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison,” Pelosi said, according to the paper.

U.S., Mexico Reach Deal to Avoid Tariffs

President Trump's tariffs against Mexico have been "indefinitely suspended," he was proud to report on Friday night.

According to the new agreement Mexico will be deploying national guard troops throughout the country and to the border and will be "taking decisive action to dismantle human smuggling and trafficking organizations as well as their illicit financial and transportation networks. The two countries will also reportedly be working closely to follow Migrant Protection Protocols.

This means that those crossing the U.S. Southern Border to seek asylum will be rapidly returned to Mexico where they may await the adjudication of their asylum claims. Mexico will also offer jobs, healthcare and education according to its principles.

Remarks by President Trump on the 75th Commemoration of D-Day





Remarks by President Trump on the 75th Commemoration of D-Day

Normandy American Cemetery
Colleville-sur-Mer, France

June 6, 2019

12:07 P.M. CEST

THE PRESIDENT: President Macron, Mrs. Macron, and the people of France; to the First Lady of the United States and members of the United States Congress; to distinguished guests, veterans, and my fellow Americans:

We are gathered here on Freedom’s Altar. On these shores, on these bluffs, on this day 75 years ago, 10,000 men shed their blood, and thousands sacrificed their lives, for their brothers, for their countries, and for the survival of liberty.

Today, we remember those who fell, and we honor all who fought right here in Normandy. They won back this ground for civilization.

To more than 170 veterans of the Second World War who join us today: You are among the very greatest Americans who will ever live. You’re the pride of our nation. You are the glory of our republic. And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. (Applause.)

Here with you are over 60 veterans who landed on D-Day. Our debt to you is everlasting. Today, we express our undying gratitude.

When you were young, these men enlisted their lives in a Great Crusade — one of the greatest of all times. Their mission is the story of an epic battle and the ferocious, eternal struggle between good and evil.

On the 6th of June, 1944, they joined a liberation force of awesome power and breathtaking scale. After months of planning, the Allies had chosen this ancient coastline to mount their campaign to vanquish the wicked tyranny of the Nazi empire from the face of the Earth.

The battle began in the skies above us. In those first tense midnight hours, 1,000 aircraft roared overhead with 17,000 Allied airborne troops preparing to leap into the darkness beyond these trees.

Then came dawn. The enemy who had occupied these heights saw the largest naval armada in the history of the world. Just a few miles offshore were 7,000 vessels bearing 130,000 warriors. They were the citizens of free and independent nations, united by their duty to their compatriots and to millions yet unborn.

There were the British, whose nobility and fortitude saw them through the worst of Dunkirk and the London Blitz. The full violence of Nazi fury was no match for the full grandeur of British pride. Thank you. (Applause.)

There were the Canadians, whose robust sense of honor and loyalty compelled them to take up arms alongside Britain from the very, very beginning.

There were the fighting Poles, the tough Norwegians, and the intrepid Aussies. There were the gallant French commandos, soon to be met by thousands of their brave countrymen ready to write a new chapter in the long history of French valor. (Applause.)

And, finally, there were the Americans. They came from the farms of a vast heartland, the streets of glowing cities, and the forges of mighty industrial towns. Before the war, many had never ventured beyond their own community. Now they had come to offer their lives half a world from home.

This beach, codenamed Omaha, was defended by the Nazis with monstrous firepower, thousands and thousands of mines and spikes driven into the sand, so deeply. It was here that tens of thousands of the Americans came.

The GIs who boarded the landing craft that morning knew that they carried on their shoulders not just the pack of a soldier, but the fate of the world. Colonel George Taylor, whose 16th Infantry Regiment would join in the first wave, was asked: What would happen if the Germans stopped right then and there, cold on the beach — just stopped them? What would happen? This great American replied: “Why, the 18th Infantry is coming in right behind us. The 26th Infantry will come on too. Then there is the 2nd Infantry Division already afloat. And the 9th Division. And the 2nd Armored. And the 3rd Armored. And all the rest. Maybe the 16th won’t make it, but someone will.”

One of those men in Taylor’s 16th Regiment was Army medic Ray Lambert. Ray was only 23, but he had already earned three Purple Hearts and two Silver Stars fighting in North Africa and Sicily, where he and his brother Bill, no longer with us, served side by side.

In the early morning hours, the two brothers stood together on the deck of the USS Henrico, before boarding two separate Higgins landing craft. “If I don’t make it,” Bill said, “please, please take care of my family.” Ray asked his brother to do the same.

Of the 31 men on Ray’s landing craft, only Ray and 6 others made it to the beach. There were only a few of them left. They came to the sector right here below us. “Easy Red” it was called. Again and again, Ray ran back into the water. He dragged out one man after another. He was shot through the arm. His leg was ripped open by shrapnel. His back was broken. He nearly drowned.

He had been on the beach for hours, bleeding and saving lives, when he finally lost consciousness. He woke up the next day on a cot beside another badly wounded soldier. He looked over and saw his brother Bill. They made it. They made it. They made it.

At 98 years old, Ray is here with us today, with his fourth Purple Heart and his third Silver Star from Omaha. (Applause.) Ray, the free world salutes you. (Applause.) Thank you, Ray. (Applause.)

Nearly two hours in, unrelenting fire from these bluffs kept the Americans pinned down on the sand now red with our heroes’ blood. Then, just a few hundred yards from where I’m standing, a breakthrough came. The battle turned, and with it, history.

Down on the beach, Captain Joe Dawson, the son of a Texas preacher, led Company G through a minefield to a natural fold in the hillside, still here. Just beyond this path to my right, Captain Dawson snuck beneath an enemy machine gun perch and tossed his grenades. Soon, American troops were charging up “Dawson’s Draw.” What a job he did. What bravery he showed.

Lieutenant Spalding and the men from Company E moved on to crush the enemy strongpoint on the far side of this cemetery, and stop the slaughter on the beach below. Countless more Americans poured out across this ground all over the countryside. They joined fellow American warriors from Utah beach, and Allies from Juno, Sword, and Gold, along with the airborne and the French patriots.

Private First Class Russell Pickett, of the 29th Division’s famed 116th Infantry Regiment, had been wounded in the first wave that landed on Omaha Beach. At a hospital in England, Private Pickett vowed to return to battle. “I’m going to return,” he said. “I’m going to return.”

Six days after D-Day, he rejoined his company. Two thirds had been killed already; many had been wounded, within 15 minutes of the invasion. They’d lost 19 just from small town of Bedford, Virginia, alone. Before long, a grenade left Private Pickett again gravely wounded. So badly wounded. Again, he chose to return. He didn’t care; he had to be here.

He was then wounded a third time, and laid unconscious for 12 days. They thought he was gone. They thought he had no chance. Russell Pickett is the last known survivor of the legendary Company A. And, today, believe it or not, he has returned once more to these shores to be with his comrades. Private Pickett, you honor us all with your presence. (Applause.) Tough guy. (Laughter.)

By the fourth week of August, Paris was liberated. (Applause.) Some who landed here pushed all the way to the center of Germany. Some threw open the gates of Nazi concentration camps to liberate Jews who had suffered the bottomless horrors of the Holocaust. And some warriors fell on other fields of battle, returning to rest on this soil for eternity.

Before this place was consecrated to history, the land was owned by a French farmer, a member of the French resistance. These were great people. These were strong and tough people. His terrified wife waited out D-Day in a nearby house, holding tight to their little baby girl. The next day, a soldier appeared. “I’m an American,” he said. “I’m here to help.” The French woman was overcome with emotion and cried. Days later, she laid flowers on fresh American graves.

Today, her granddaughter, Stefanie, serves as a guide at this cemetery. This week, Stefanie led 92-year-old Marian Wynn of California to see the grave of her brother Don for the very first time.

Marian and Stefanie are both with us today. And we thank you for keeping alive the memories of our precious heroes. Thank you. (Applause.)

9,388 young Americans rest beneath the white crosses and Stars of David arrayed on these beautiful grounds. Each one has been adopted by a French family that thinks of him as their own. They come from all over France to look after our boys. They kneel. They cry. They pray. They place flowers. And they never forget. Today, America embraces the French people and thanks you for honoring our beloved dead. Thank you. (Applause.) Thank you. Thank you.

To all of our friends and partners: Our cherished alliance was forged in the heat of battle, tested in the trials of war, and proven in the blessings of peace. Our bond is unbreakable.

From across the Earth, Americans are drawn to this place as though it were a part of our very soul. We come not only because of what they did here. We come because of who they were.

They were young men with their entire lives before them. They were husbands who said goodbye to their young brides and took their duty as their fate. They were fathers who would never meet their infant sons and daughters because they had a job to do. And with God as their witness, they were going to get it done. They came wave after wave, without question, without hesitation, and without complaint.

More powerful than the strength of American arms was the strength of American hearts.

These men ran through the fires of hell moved by a force no weapon could destroy: the fierce patriotism of a free, proud, and sovereign people. (Applause.) They battled not for control and domination, but for liberty, democracy, and self-rule.

They pressed on for love in home and country — the Main Streets, the schoolyards, the churches and neighbors, the families and communities that gave us men such as these.

They were sustained by the confidence that America can do anything because we are a noble nation, with a virtuous people, praying to a righteous God.

The exceptional might came from a truly exceptional spirit. The abundance of courage came from an abundance of faith. The great deeds of an Army came from the great depths of their love.

As they confronted their fate, the Americans and the Allies placed themselves into the palm of God’s hand.

The men behind me will tell you that they are just the lucky ones. As one of them recently put it, “All the heroes are buried here.” But we know what these men did. We knew how brave they were. They came here and saved freedom, and then, they went home and showed us all what freedom is all about.

The American sons and daughters who saw us to victory were no less extraordinary in peace. They built families. They built industries. They built a national culture that inspired the entire world. In the decades that followed, America defeated communism, secured civil rights, revolutionized science, launched a man to the moon, and then kept on pushing to new frontiers. And, today, America is stronger than ever before. (Applause.)

Seven decades ago, the warriors of D-Day fought a sinister enemy who spoke of a thousand-year empire. In defeating that evil, they left a legacy that will last not only for a thousand years, but for all time — for as long as the soul knows of duty and honor; for as long as freedom keeps its hold on the human heart.

To the men who sit behind me, and to the boys who rest in the field before me, your example will never, ever grow old. (Applause.) Your legend will never tire. Your spirit — brave, unyielding, and true — will never die.

The blood that they spilled, the tears that they shed, the lives that they gave, the sacrifice that they made, did not just win a battle. It did not just win a war. Those who fought here won a future for our nation. They won the survival of our civilization. And they showed us the way to love, cherish, and defend our way of life for many centuries to come.

Today, as we stand together upon this sacred Earth, we pledge that our nations will forever be strong and united. We will forever be together. Our people will forever be bold. Our hearts will forever be loyal. And our children, and their children, will forever and always be free.

May God bless our great veterans. May God bless our Allies. May God bless the heroes of D-Day. And may God bless America. Thank you. (Applause.) Thank you very much.

We love you President Trump! So proud to have the BEST President and First Lady in world history! Thank you for all of your hard work and sacrifices for us. God Bless and protect you both and your family ALWAYS!




President Donald Trump delivered a moving address during the 75th-anniversary commemoration of D-Day in Normandy, France, on Thursday.

The president took the stage shortly after French President Emmanuel Macron and addressed the crowd, which included 60 American veterans who were present on D-Day when the American forces stormed the beaches of Normandy. “You are the pride of our nation, you are the glory of the republic, and we thank you from the bottom of our heart,” Trump said to applause.

The president honored the troops from other countries before asserting, “And finally, there were the Americans.”

“They came from the farms of a vast heartland, the streets of glowing cities and the forges of mighty industrial towns. Before the war, many had never ventured beyond their own community. Now, they had come to offer their lives halfway across the world,” he said.

The president declared that the soldiers who came to Normandy that day “knew that they were carrying on their shoulders not just the pack of a soldier, the but the fate of the world.”

Trump took time to honor several of the American veterans present by name, including former Army medic Arnold Raymond “Ray” Lambert, who is now 98 years old.

Lambert was one of just six men who survived from his landing craft, was shot in the arm, had his leg ripped open by shrapnel, and suffered a broken back, but he continued to attempt to save others on the beach and in the water for hours.

“Ray, the free world salutes you,” Trump said as the crowd gave Lambert a standing ovation.

The president paused his speech at that point to walk over to Lambert and shake his hand. Lambert responded by tipping his “D-Day veteran” hat to the president, according to the White House print pool.

The crowd continued to cheer for Lambert, and the president solemnly said, “Thank you, Ray.”

President Trump reads prayer from FDR on D-Day anniversary


As dawn broke on June 6, 1944, German soldiers defending the French coast at Normandy beheld an awe-inspiring sight—the largest amphibious invasion force in history massed in the waters of the English Channel. The long-awaited invasion of northwest Europe was underway.

The giant invasion had taken years to organize. Hundreds of thousands of men and millions of tons of weapons and equipment were transported across the Atlantic Ocean to Britain in advance of the operation. The invasion force consisted chiefly of Americans, Britons, and Canadians. But troops of the Free French and many other nations also participated.

The invasion was the culmination of Franklin Roosevelt’s Grand Strategy, especially his decision to pursue a “Germany First” policy and his insistence—in the face of Churchill’s preference for a peripheral strategy—that the operation go forward in 1944.

The Normandy invasion established a solid “Second Front” in Europe. Its success left Hitler’s armies trapped in a vise, fighting the Red Army in the East and an expanding Anglo-American-Canadian force in the West.

During the tense early hours of the invasion, FDR monitored reports from the front. That evening, he delivered a statement to the American people. It took the form of a prayer, which he read on national radio.





Franklin D. Roosevelt’s D-Day Prayer

On the night of June 6, 1944, President Roosevelt went on national radio to address the nation for the first time about the Normandy invasion. His speech took the form of a prayer.

The date and timing of the Normandy invasion had been top secret. During a national radio broadcast on June 5 about the Allied liberation of Rome, President Roosevelt made no mention of the Normandy operation, already underway at that time.

When he spoke to the country on June 6, the President felt the need to explain his earlier silence. Shortly before he went on the air, he added several handwritten lines to the opening of his speech that addressed that point. They read: "Last night, when I spoke to you about the fall of Rome, I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our allies were crossing the Channel in another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far."


President Trump reads prayer from FDR on D-Day anniversary

President Trump marked the D-Day anniversary by reading an excerpt from a prayer President Franklin Delano Roosevelt delivered to the nation by radio on the evening of June 6, 1944, in which he spoke to the country for the first time about the Normandy operation.


Text of Radio Address - Prayer on D-Day, June 6, 1944:

My fellow Americans: Last night, when I spoke with you about the fall of Rome, I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our allies were crossing the Channel in another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far.

And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer:

Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.

They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest-until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men's souls will be shaken with the violences of war.

For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and good will among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.

Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.

And for us at home -- fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers of brave men overseas -- whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them--help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice.

Many people have urged that I call the Nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts.

Give us strength, too -- strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contributions we make in the physical and the material support of our armed forces.

And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.

And, O Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our sons; Faith in each other; Faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.

With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

Thy will be done, Almighty God.

Amen."



D-Day: A Turning Point in World War II

The D-Day invasion opened up the long-awaited Second Front against Hitler. The United States and its allies had launched the greatest amphibious invasion in history on the shores of France. Over 150,000 soldiers, sailors, and airmen stormed the beaches of Normandy beginning a campaign that would end with the unconditional surrender of Germany in May 1945. In August, a second Allied invasion force landed on France’s southern coast. Soon Paris was liberated, and by the fall, Allied armies were poised to cross the German border.

Our President and First Lady spoke to American service members on the USS Wasp, docked in Japan






In honor of Memorial Day, the President and First Lady spoke to American service members on the USS Wasp, docked in Japan. “Today, the unbreakable resolve of [our fallen] heroes lives on in every American who wears our great uniform,” the President said to a crowd of 1,000 American sailors and Marines.

“On behalf of all Americans, we thank you.”


Remarks by President Trump and the First Lady in Memorial Day Address to Troops Aboard the USS Wasp


THE FIRST LADY: It is wonderful to be with you today. This has been a very enjoyable and productive visit with the Japanese people. And we are thankful for the incredible hospitality that we have received.

Back in November, I visited the USS George H.W. Bush, one of our nation’s great aircraft carriers at work in the Atlantic Ocean. It is a privilege to once again join with you, our incredible sailors and Marines, on the USS Wasp at work, here in the Pacific Ocean.

Thank you for your service and sacrifice and all that you do on behalf of our country. May God bless you and your families.
I’d now like to introduce my husband, your Commander-in-Chief, the 45th President of the United States of America. Mr. President? (Applause.)

AUDIENCE: USA! USA! USA!

PRESIDENT TRUMP: What a group. What a group. This is a tough bunch of people, right? (Applause.) And that’s good. That’s very good.

And I want to thank you, Melania. You’ve been really the talk of Japan. They’re not covering me. I’m a little bit upset with her right now. (Laughter.) No, they love you in Japan, honey, and we appreciate it very much. She really works very hard. They love our First Lady, and they love our First Lady back home.

I want to just tell everyone before we even begin: At ease! At ease. Just relax. We have plenty of time. Plenty of time. We’re going to have a little fun. And I’m thrilled to be aboard the USS Wasp with the brave sailors and Marines, the Seventh Fleet. Special, special people. Thank you very much. Great job. Thank you. (Applause.)

And I have to wish you all a very Happy Memorial Day, right? Memorial Day — very special back home. And I always like to be back in the U.S., as you do, for that day. But we did a lot of great things for the last three days in Japan. So we’re working together. You’re working. I’m working. We’re all working together.

As President, I have no higher honor than serving as your Commander-in-Chief — and the extraordinary men and women of the American Armed Forces.

This has been a truly amazing and unforgettable visit to Japan. Melania and I are profoundly grateful to Their Majesties the new Emperor and Empress. I had the great honor of being their first state guests. That was a big honor for our country. We’re also deeply thankful to our cherished friends and treasured partners, Prime Minister and Mrs. Abe. Very, very great people. Our thanks as well to Ambassador Hagerty and his wife Chrissy. Thank you very much. Thank you, Ambassador. Thank you, Chrissy. Thank you very much. Great job you’re doing.

Today, we’re proud to be joined by the many outstanding military leaders. We have a lot. These are very incredible ones. I especially want to thank the Commanding Officer of USS Wasp, Captain Christopher Herr. (Applause.) They like you, Christopher. They like you a lot. That’s very good, Christopher. (Laughter.) And the Command Master Chief, Kevin Guy. (Applause.) Popular people. That’s great. Wow. Great leaders.

My thanks as well to Lieutenant General Kevin Schneider, Commander of the U.S. Forces Japan. Thank you, Kevin. (Applause.) Thank you.

Vice Admiral Phil Sawyer, Commander of the U.S. Seventh Fleet. (Applause.) And, you know, they’re all such good-looking people. You have all this media over here. They’re going to end up in Hollywood. They’re going to leave us. Some of them will be picked for Hollywood, right? And they won’t do it. They like this better — and I agree.

Rear Admiral Gregory Fenton, Commander of the United States Naval Force Japan. Thank you. (Applause.) Thank you, Gregory. Thank you. Great.

Rear Admiral James Pitts, Commander of the Submarine Group 7. (Applause.) And you know we’re doing a lot of big submarines right now. We’re building a lot of them. I’ll tell you, the best in the world. Not even a contest. Right? It’s really something. I just saw plans for one. But they’re no longer the little submarines that we think about. These are incredible machines, right? Thank you very much.

Brigadier General Todd Dozier, Deputy Commander of the 5th Air Force. Todd. Thank you, Todd. (Applause.)

Rear Admiral Fred Kacher, Commander of Task Force 76. Thank you very much. (Applause.) Thank you very much. Great. Great leaders.

Captain Jim McGovern, Commander of the Amphibious Squadron 11. And Captain Jeffrey Kim, Commander of Fleet Activities, right here. Thank you very much. (Applause.) Thank you. Great.
Together, these officers are leading the most fearsome group of American warriors this side of the Pacific. We have more than 1,000 sailors and Marines from the Seventh Fleet here today, including hundreds who serve on this impressive assault ship, USS Wasp. (Applause.)

Also joining us are sailors from the following ships: USS Shiloh. (Applause.) USS Chancellorsville. (Applause.) USS Mustin. (Applause.) USS Barry. (Applause.) You love those ships, don’t you? Huh? (Laughter.) USS McCampbell. (Applause.) USS Benford [Benfold]. (Applause.) Thank you, fellas. That’s great. Great pride.

Finally, I want to recognize our many shore-based commands here today, including large contingents from Navy Region Japan. Thank you very much. (Applause.) We like them. We like them. The Fleet Anti-Terrorism Security Team. (Applause.) The Naval Intelligence Operations Center. (Applause.) Fleet Logistics Center Yokosuka. (Applause.)

The Ship Repair Facility. I’ll bet you guys do a good job. Do they do a good jobs with the ships, right? (Laughter.) Repairing them. Huh? (Applause.)

So then, let me ask you a question. Catapult — right? The catapult system. Do you like electric or steam?

AUDIENCE MEMBERS: Steam!

AUDIENCE MEMBERS: Electric!

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Steam. Who said “electric”? There’s one guy back there. (Laughter.) Okay, I really need this information because, you know, we’re building carriers. We’re building one. They’re using an electric catapult and an electric elevator. Number one, I can’t imagine, in the case of battle — it must be very delicate, okay? And, you know, steam has only worked for about 65 years, perfectly.

And I won’t tell you this because it’s before my time by a little bit, but they have a $900 million cost overrun on this crazy electric catapult. I said, “What was wrong with steam?”

I would like to know — all of the folks that know exactly what I’m talking about, the catapult system — steam or electric?

Ready? Steam. (Applause.) Electric.

AUDIENCE MEMBERS: Yeah! (Laughter.)

PRESIDENT TRUMP: He works for the enemy. (Laughter.) He’s all right. We’ll — ooh, you might be in danger. I better be careful. (Laughter.)

No, we want to go with steam. You know, they’re always coming up with new ideas. They’re making planes so complex you can’t fly them. (Laughter.) You know that. No, it’s — I really mean it. They want to show next, next, next. And we all want innovation, but it’s too much.

But there’s never been anything like the steam catapults. And I went to the Gerald Ford, which is under construction now for a long time. They’re having a problem with their electric catapult. And I was talking to the catapult people, and they said “steam.” In the meantime, we’re spending all that money on electric, and nobody knows what it’s going to be like in bad conditions. You understand.

So I think I’m going to put an order. When we build a new aircraft carrier, we’re going to use steam. I’m going to just put out an order: We’re going to use steam. We don’t need — we don’t need that extra speed. You know, they were saying — one of the folks said, “No, the electric works faster. But, sir, we can only get the plane there every couple of minutes.” So, really, what they did was wrong.

And we make mistakes, but, generally speaking, we get it right. But when we make them, we have to correct it. So we’re going to put out an order: We want to use steam.

The military doctors and nurses from the U.S. Naval Hospital Yokosuka, and many more. (Applause.) So many people. So many great, great people.

Every Marine and sailor standing on USS Wasp is the face of American strength and power in the Pacific.

The Seventh Fleet is America’s largest forward-deployed naval fleet. Together, you are 70 ships and submarines strong, with 140 aircraft, and 40,000 of America’s finest sailors and Marines. Did you know that about yourselves? Not bad. It’s very impressive.

With us today is Marine Staff Sergeant Daniel Patterson. Where’s Daniel? Where’s Daniel? Get over here, Daniel. (Applause.) Tough-looking guy.

Every single generation of Staff Sergeant Patterson’s family has served in the United States military, all the way back to the Revolutionary War. But Staff Sergeant Patterson was the first to choose the Marines.

AUDIENCE: Oo-rah!

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Right? (Laughs.) After completing two tours of duty in Afghanistan, Staff Sergeant Patterson requested another overseas tour — this time wanted to go to Japan. He knows that America needs — and what they need is daring and mighty warriors in the Pacific, and he’s a daring and mighty warrior.

Staff Sergeant Patterson, today, you and your fellow Marines and sailors of the Seventh Fleet are confronting this region’s pressing security challenges with unmatched courage and valor. You know what’s going on. You know where we’re talking. You know what we’re talking about. We really appreciate your being here.

Daniel, I’m going to do something that you didn’t expect. Say a few words, Daniel. (Applause.)

STAFF SERGEANT PATTERSON: Well, it’s such an honor and a privilege to be here with you, Mr. President. And I definitely didn’t expect this. And it’s an honor and privilege to serve with my fellow sailors and Marines and drive our mission forward that General Smith and the Commodore and Colonel Brodie has kind of laid out for us. And we know why we’re here and we know what we — who we need to egress. Because if we don’t, we let ourselves just sleep on it for even a second, then we won’t be the ultimate power in the world.

So thank you very much and thank all of you. (Applause.)

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Good job, Daniel. He’ll be running for political office within two weeks. Look. (Laughter.) Daniel, great. Thank you very much. Great job.

Every day, the men and women of the Seventh Fleet live out their motto: “Ready Power for Peace.”

You face down terrorism and render aid in the wake of devastating natural disasters. And I’ve seen what you do. Incredible.

You proudly patrol the Yellow Sea, the Sea of Japan, the East China Sea, and the South China Sea. You defend your homeland and our allies against missile attack with our most advanced radar and weapons systems in the world. We have equipment, missiles, rockets, tanks, planes, ships. Nobody in the entire world can build them like we do. Nobody. It’s not even close. You know that better than anybody.

Here in the Pacific and around the globe, we want our armed forces to have the tools, resources, and equipment you need and that you deserve.

That’s why we have given our Seventh Fleet new, American-made, F-35B Marine fighter aircraft. Very stealthy. You know that, right? The enemy has a problem with it. You know what the problem is? They can’t see it. (Laughter.) Other than that, it’s a fair fight. (Laughter.) Just like my one, and this one right here. That just came out. Beautiful.

Last year, USS Wasp made history when it became the very first ship to deploy these cutting-edge aircraft. I want to congratulate you all. And you’re getting a lot of brand new ones. We’re getting brand new equipment.

You know, when I came two and a half years ago, we had planes that were so old they didn’t make parts for them anymore. You don’t have that anymore. You don’t have that. We’re getting all new beautiful equipment. We need it. We need it. Peace through strength, right?

In April, USS Wasp also became the first ship to deploy F-35Bs in the Balikatan Naval exercise with the Philippines and with Australia.

Later this year, the USS Wasp returns home. We will be sending the men and women of the Seventh Fleet our most formidable amphibious assault ship: USS America.

USS America will soon be sailing these Pacific waters, and I am pleased to say that she will also be carrying the most beautiful F-35Bs on her deck. Brand new. Brand new.

My administration is committed to ensuring that America’s military strength forever remains second to none.

Over the past two years, we have made historic investments in our military with $700 billion. Right, General? That’s billions, right? No more millions. Not when it comes to our military. It’s a little bit scary. With a “B.” Scary. You know, it used to be millions; now it’s billions. And that’s the way it has to be, because we have to protect our country and we have to protect our allies.

And last year, $716 billion. So, this year, we’re going up. And in a very short period of time, our military will be completely rebuilt and stronger, bigger, better than ever before. Won’t even be close. And we’re very close. And when I took over, we were very depleted. And you people knew that better than anybody. We were depleted. It’s the only word I can use to describe it. It was not a good situation. But we’re going to be very close. Right now, we’re very close. Very shortly, we’re going to be at a level the likes of which we’ve never been before.

This includes money for five new guided-missile destroyers, four new nuclear-powered fast-attack submarines. That’s the one you want? Okay. We got them. We’ve got four of them. You only wanted one; we got you four. And 163 brand new F-35 Joint Strike fighter jets.

As Prime Minister Abe and I discussed yesterday, Japan also plans to equip the Japanese Self-Defense Forces with 105 F-35 aircraft, which would make Japan’s F-35 fleet the largest of any U.S. ally. The U.S.-Japan alliance has never been stronger. The relationship between your President and the Prime Minister of Japan — he’s a great gentleman; great man — is a fantastic one.

This remarkable port is the only one in the world where we’re — American naval fleet and an allied naval fleet, headquartered side-by-side — a testament to the ironclad partnership between U.S. and Japanese forces.

Together, you are advancing freedom on the high seas, shielding our nation from dangerous weapons, and preserving the peace that generations of valiant American warriors gave their lives to secure.

One of those intrepid Americans was Private First Class John Schaeffer. Born and raised in Tower City, Pennsylvania, Private Schaeffer was a member of a group of U.S. Army Special Forces who fought in the Pacific during World War II under the legendary command of General Frank Merrill. Good General? Good General? Pretty good, right? That’s what they say. Are you better? Huh? (Laughs.) Just be as good.

Although Private Schaeffer sadly perished in the Battle of Burma, his deep love of country endures in someone very special with us today, his grandnephew, Senior Chief Petty Officer Daniel Schaeffer. Where’s Daniel? Should I get him up? (Applause.) And I want to thank you very much for the incredible job you’ve done. We picked a couple of people that are outstanding. Please say a couple of words.

SENIOR CHIEF PETTY OFFICER SCHAEFFER: Sure.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Please.

SENIOR CHIEF PETTY OFFICER SCHAEFFER: Thank you, Mr. President. This is amazing to have recognized my family. But I know a lot of others have families that served as well.

Memorial Day is that time where we honor our fellow Americans who pay the ultimate sacrifice. So, you know, thank you for all my shipmates and fellow Marines that are out here today, it’s a great day. Thank you, Mr. President.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much. (Applause.)

Two great jobs. And that’s not easy. They don’t know they’re coming up. You didn’t know, did you, huh? You had no idea. And you both did it. They didn’t choke. We don’t like chokers, do we? We don’t like chokers. We don’t like chokers.

On this Memorial Day evening in the United States, Americans are concluding a sacred day of remembrance, reflection, and prayer. Citizens all across the country came together to decorate the graves of our fallen heroes and to honor their selfless acts of courage.

The citizens of our country are incredible. They love our country, and they love you. They love you. You have no idea how much they love you.

Down through history, from America’s earliest days, fearless Americans have said goodbye to their loved ones, gone off to war, and stared down our enemies, knowing that they may never, ever return. Memorial Day links every grateful American heart in eternal tribute to those brave souls who gave their last breath for our nation, from Concord to Gettysburg, from Midway to Mosul.

Today, the unbreakable resolve of these heroes lives on in every American who wears our great uniform. Each day that you serve on these rolling but beautiful seas, you honor their sacrifice, you carry on their righteous duty, and you continue their noble legacy.

Our republic endures because of brave men and women who are willing to lay down their lives to defend us all. Our freedom is earned through the blood, and sweat, and toil, and sacrifice of great American patriots just like you.

As we honor America’s fallen warriors, we pledge our unwavering devotion to all of those who serve our nation in uniform.

Throughout this region — from Yokosuka, to Guam, to Singapore, to Okinawa, to Busan — the Seventh Fleet is holding the line and defending the peace.

Among the sailors and Marines the USS WASP, you serve as warfare officers, naval aviators, Marine riflemen, air-crewmen, corpsmen, machinist mates, avionics tech —

AUDIENCE: Ooh!

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Go ahead. You can do it. (Laughter.) Ordnance technicians. (Applause.) Okay. (Laughter.) Where are the avionics guys? (Applause.) And gals. Huh? Right there? Good. That’s complicated business, right? Got to be pretty good. Cooks, fire control men and women, intelligence specialists.

You are the strongest, toughest, best, and bravest. Do you agree with that?

AUDIENCE: Yeah!

PRESIDENT TRUMP: You better. You are the ones keep going and striving, and keeping America safe, and strong, and proud, and free.

You defend our freedom, our families, and you defend our great American flag. (Applause.)

You show the world the force of American might and American heart. And you prove, across these perilous waters and far beyond, that there is no match on Earth for the awesome power and glory of the American Navy and the United States Marines. (Applause.)

To the men and women of America’s Seventh Fleet: The First Lady and I have been deeply honored to be with you all today. On behalf of all Americans, we thank you, we salute you, we honor you, we cherish you, and we stand with you now and forever.

Thank you to the proud sailors and Marines of USS Wasp. (Applause.)

God bless you. God bless our military. And God bless the United States of America. Thank you very much. (Applause.)

President Trump Attends the Sumo Wrestling Cultural Program


President Trump attended a sumo tournament in Tokyo on Sunday, watching the action from a specially prepared seat near the ring, and presented an American-made trophy to the victor.

He climbed into the raised ring to present the newly made trophy, informally dubbed the "Trump Cup," to the winne .

"In honor of your outstanding achievement as sumo grand champion, I hereby award you the United States President's Cup," Trump said before handing a certificate to Asanoyama .

The president, wearing black slippers instead of leather shoes, took the ring via a staircase instead of using the steps cut into the ring's clay, bowed slightly and smiled to the crowd. He lifted the 60 pound trophy with some help, and handed it to the newly-crowned champion.

Actor Jon Voight Disgussing His Support for President Trump










Jon Voight is a longtime Republican who supported Trump during his 2016 White House bid, eventually going on to make an appearance at a concert in Washington, D.C., to celebrate Trump's inauguration the following year.

"And President Lincoln, who sits here with us ... I'm sure is smiling knowing America will be saved by an honest and good man who will work for all the people, no matter their creed or color," Voight said during the event on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on May 27, 2019

The actor was appointed by Trump in March alongside former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) to the board of trustees of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

President Trump called press into the Rose Garden





President Trump called press into the Rose Garden ...regarding Congress and House Democrats for their investigations into the Mueller report.

President Trump on Wednesday demanded Democrats end what he called their "phony investigations" before he'll negotiate with them on issues like infrastructure, as he delivered a fiery statement from the Rose Garden after a meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer was cut short.


The president railed against the various congressional probes during his solo appearance, and rejected Pelosi's allegations moments earlier of a "cover-up." “So I just wanted to let you know that I walked into the room and I told Sen. Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, I want to do infrastructure,” Trump told reporters. “I want to do it more than you want to do it. I would be really good at that. That's what I do. But you know what? You can't do it under these circumstances. So get these phony investigations over with.” Earlier in the day, Pelosi told reporters “we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up—a cover-up.”

"Instead of walking in happily into a meeting, I walk in to look at people that have just said that I was doing a cover up," Trump said. "I don't do cover-ups.” Trump, who stood at a podium displaying a sign that said “no collusion, no obstruction,” also lashed out at media for their coverage of the Russia probe.

“This whole thing was a takedown attempt at the president of the United States, and honestly you ought to be ashamed of yourselves for the way you reported so dishonestly,” he said.

Donald Trump is Awakening the American Dream by Robert Davi




Donald Trump is Awakening the American Dream

by Robert Davi


Actor, singer, Hollywood conservative and Breitbart columnist Robert Davi.



On June 15, while Donald Trump was announcing his candidacy for President of the United States, I began to write.

My article was published here on June 16, and I was way out front in how Donald Trump would resonate with the American people. Needless to say, I received tons of flak and ridicule. Also, the majority of pundits smirkingly dismissed it as an absurdity to think Trump would make a serious run.

Well, my dear fellow Americans, it is now two months since he made his announcement and I must say—while I feel there are some terrific candidates—Trump towers over all like a colossus

For years I have heard people say “what America needs is someone who is successful to run the country,” “is this the best America has to offer?”, ” there is so much scrutiny in running anyone who is very successful would never run,” etc., etc. Enter Donald Trump.

Trump is a force of nature with a love for America that has made him sacrifice his very successful life. He now brings a message of bold, forceful, positive energy. I do not like when I hear him referred to as “bombastic.”

When pundits refer to him this way it is because the Donald does not fit into the cookie cutter way they perceive politics, and his direct, no nonsense style is criticized to minimize his message. While I listen to all the candidates speak, Trump inspires the most confidence. I believe he will be able to negotiate with other world leaders. I believe he can inspire the confidence to bring Americans together and reset our national will. I believe he is exactly what America needs right now.

We do not need another politician who has no life experience, but is mired in the bureaucratic thinking that keeps the status quo. I want someone who can build, and Trump has proven he can build and negotiate. But even more, Trump has what Reagan had: the ability to communicate and inspire confidence.

While I intently listen to some very good candidates speak, I feel ok nice, fine, good, but I am not excited. They may say the right things, but I really do not feel they have the force of personality or experience to “Make America Great Again.” Herein lies the strength of Donald Trump.

I watched Trump on Meet the Press and was quite impressed. Chuck Todd pressed him on several issues, and whether you agree with Trump’s ideas or not, he comes across as absolutely authentic, not political.


While Todd attempted to trap Trump—and expected him to come across as unlikable or clueless—Trump answered honestly and directly. He had Todd stumped. Watch Chuck Todd’s face, you will see a subtle look of perplexity and frustration that he wasn’t able to make the Donald look, well, un-presidential.

In fact, I say that Donald Trump came across as a potential Leader of the Free World that will have to be reckoned with. He is a man who wants and will get some of the best America has to offer to negotiate with other countries . How refreshing. I for one have watched bureaucrats and politicians make bad deals and sell out this country.

It is time we have a leader that does not apologize for wanting America to reclaim its destiny and this is resonating with a wide range of people, not just the “angry Americans ” the media would have you believe .


Legal immigrants who came to America—hoping to live the dream it was built on—are pulling for Trump. For instance, Ali and Sayeed, who work in the gas station I usually get my gas from are talking about how they are for Trump. Women who are nurses, lawyers, and hockey moms are speaking of Trump while getting their morning breakfast drink at Starbucks.

Its time we galvanize behind a man who has the energy, personal charisma, vision, and real-world experience that can help pull America out of the quicksand that Progressives, the current administration, and weak political thinking by both parties have stuck us in.

Recently, I read that Glenn Beck was asking conservative pundits: “These are smart people. What am I missing? Why are you for Trump?”

Well to Mr.Beck and those asking similar questions, let me say this. For years I have heard politicians seemingly say the “right things” and have a consistent point of view. I have heard wonderfully intellectual answers to issues that sound great but are too nuanced to resonate on a deeper level.

Most politicians, while well-meaning, speak with a “forked tongue.” Im tired and bored of this. I like the plainspeak of Donald Trump. Some folks make it seem like you are a leper if one has a change of heart or personal growth on certain issues based on life’s circumstances. Well let me say—thats a lot of HOOEY! No one has talked about America with the kind of positive strength that I am hearing from Trump.


My question is what are you not hearing? For years, we needed someone who can use popular culture to bring a message that will resonate across the aisle. Trump has been on the inside of business, he knows how the sausage is made and let’s us know it. I want someone with the strength of character that will grind up Washington and serve it up to the American people. One must also take note of Trump’s family, his children are not rejecting him, they do not resent him, it is not easy being a father and Trump’s children seem to be hard working and nice people. As they say, the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.

America, we need someone who will not let the failed ideologies of the Left further erode the values our nation was built on, and who isn’t afraid of going up against the status quo. Instead of waiting for Trump to fail, I say let’s all help him succeed—for in doing so we just may be able to wake up the American Dream.

Interview of Trump's Ex-Butler Tony Senecal






Donald Trump former butler Tony Senecal has much to tell, like when a young Mr. Trump and first wife Ivana, had four butlers waiting on them hand and foot.

Senecal, who served Trump for almost 20 years, told IE: "The man sleeps maybe three or four hours a night." Senecal describes Trump as a man always on the move and rarely relaxes.

Trump does have his pet peeves. "People being late," according to the butler is one of them. He also says Trump doesn't tolerate sloppiness in others or himself.




One man who really knows what Donald Trump is like is his private butler, Anthony Senecal. Before retiring a few years ago, he worked at Mr Trump's lavish Mar-a-Lago estate for three decades.

Trump admin gets pro-abortion language removed from UN anti-rape resolution



Trump admin gets pro-abortion language removed from UN anti-rape resolution


The Trump administration secured the removal of pro-abortion language from a United Nations resolution against rape in war zones Tuesday by threatening to veto the measure if the final version contained a notorious euphemism for abortion.

The UN Security Council had been debating updates a resolution first approved in 2013 to combat the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war. The United States objected to a reference in the document calling for “comprehensive health services, including sexual and reproductive health” for “survivors of sexual violence,” on the grounds that “reproductive health” is a longstanding term of art for abortion and related services.


The Trump administration would not publicly discuss ongoing negotiations, but Foreign Policy reports that an internal State Department cable explains its position.

America remains “strongly committed to preventing conflict-related sexual violence and holding responsible persons accountable” and agrees “more needs to be done to deter the recurrence of such crimes and assist survivors,” the cable said, but “cannot accept unamended explicit, or implicit, references to ‘sexual and reproductive health’” because “we do not support or promote abortion.”

“If we let the Americans do this and take out this language, it will be watered down for a long time,” an unnamed European diplomat complained to The Guardian. “It is, at its heart, an attack on the progressive normative framework established over the past 25 years.”

The US threat to veto the resolution succeeded in getting the language removed from the final resolution Tuesday, US News reports. The finalized text "ended up in a place that is closer in line with the White House's priorities,” an administration aide said.

Complaining that the change was “intolerable and incomprehensible,” France’s UN Ambassador Francois Delattre admitted that the “reproductive health” language was all about abortion, by blasting the Security Council for failing to acknowledge that rape survivors “should have the right to terminate their pregnancy."

The Trump administration has consistently worked to defend life and oppose abortion at the UN, from resisting pro-abortion agenda items and reducing foreign abortion funding to affirming that abortion isn’t a human right and promoting abstinence education.

Ex-House Rep. Michele Bachmann exalts Trump: We will ‘never see a more godly, biblical president’

“Donald Trump has had the courage in the fortitude, and I will say to your listeners in my lifetime I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump,” she said.

“He has so impressed me with what he has done, and we haven’t even talked about Israel. He is highly biblical. And I will say to your listeners, we will in all likelihood never see a more godly, biblical president again in our lifetimes. So we need to not only be praying for him. We need to support him, in my opinion, in every possible way we can,” she concluded.

Bachmann served four terms in Congress before announcing in 2014 that she will not be seeking re-election. She served as one of Trump’s evangelical advisers during his 2016 presidential candidate.

President Trump Attends the Greek Independence Day Celebration





President Trump Attends the Greek Independence Day Celebration

Such a wonderful POTUS, God has blessed us with!




THE PRESIDENT: Wow. That’s a nice crowd of people. So we were just given this great hat. You know what that says? Huh? “Make Greece Great Again.” Right? (Applause.) Right?

Okay. Thank you all very much. A great honor to be here. And so many of my friends celebrate Greek Independence Day.

We’re deeply privileged to have with us His Eminence, Archbishop Demetrios, who’s been a friend of mine for a long time. (Applause.) It’s a great honor. To all the members of the Greek Orthodox community, welcome to a very, very special place called the White House. You’ve been hearing about it for a long time. You’ll be hearing about it for a long time. But it is a very, very special kind of a home. It becomes home, and there’s nothing like it.

We’re also grateful to be joined by Greece’s Ambassador to the United States, Haris Lalacos. Where’s Haris? Thank you very much. (Applause.) Great job. As well as the Ambassador from Cyprus, Marios Lysiotis. Lysiotis. (Applause.) Hi. How are you? Thanks, Marios. And the appointed Ambassador from the European Union, Stavros Lambrinidis. (Applause.) Thank you very much.

I want to thank the members of my Cabinet for being here also this evening. Thank you to Secretary Alex Azar. Where’s Alex? What a job he’s doing. (Applause.) First time in 51 years, prescription drug prices have come down. First time that’s happened. (Applause.) That’s Alex Azar. Thank you, Alex. Great job.

Secretary Elaine Chao. Where’s Elaine? (Applause.) Great job Elaine is doing. Where is Elaine? Thank you, Elaine.
Secretary Betsy DeVos, who has done fantastically. (Applause.) Thank you. Education. Education. Very important. Right, Betsy?

Acting Secretary David Bernhardt, who’s going to be a permanent secretary very soon. David? Where are you, David? Where is David? He’s here someplace. Thank you, David. (Applause.) Along with Representative Chris Pappas. We really appreciate it very much. (Applause.)

Today, we commemorate the Greeks’ long struggle to regain their independence from a foreign empire. (Applause.) On March 25th, 1821 — it’s true. (Applause.) Yeah, we have an honorary Greek in the room: Mr. Howard Lorber. I call him an honorary Greek. (Applause.) And Harry LeFrak is here someplace, who’s my guy. Hi, Harry. We have a lot of great honorary — they all want to be Greek, you know? (Laughter.) They all want to be Greek.

On March 25th, 1821, Greek patriots rose up and fought to liberate their country, restore their sovereignty, and reclaim their destiny. Right?

This evening, we also celebrate the countless ways Greek Americans strengthen and uplift and inspire our nation. You live by the values that are the foundation of America’s greatness. You really do. You honor hard work. You love your families. You enrich your culture. And you embrace the American Dream and you keep faith in the blessings of Almighty God. And that’s great. (Applause.)

The United States — and all of Western civilization — has been profoundly shaped by the extraordinary achievements of the Greek people, stretching all the way back to ancient times. Long time. It’s a great culture.

Greek poets and philosophers like Homer and Aristotle have helped humanity pursue truth, and virtue, and justice. Ancient Greece achieved extraordinary feats of architecture, geometry, map-making, and so much else that has inspired all wonders of the world. And Greece is the birthplace of democracy. Have you heard that? (Applause.) Have you heard that?

As a famous Greek historian wrote, “Happiness depends on being free, and freedom depends on being courageous.” And you are courageous.

In every generation, Greek Americans have summoned the courage to defend our freedom. Today, we are honored to be in the presence of Greek Americans who have served in the American Armed Forces — many, many great Greek Americans — (applause) — including Senior Airman Gregory Manuel, who is currently a reservist with the 42nd Intelligence Squadron. I love that word. Where is Gregory? Where are you, Greg? Look at him. Handsome guy. (Applause.) Handsome guy. Good. Thank you very much for being here, Gregory. And Major Carl Hollister, who served in the Army for more than 20 years. And we’re very proud of Carl. Where’s Carl? (Applause.) Carl? Thank you. Thank you, Carl.

To Gregory and Carl, and everyone who has defended America and its uniform: We applaud your patriotism and we salute your noble service to our nation. We very much appreciate it. Thank you very much. Great job. (Applause.)

Americans of Greek descent have made lasting contributions to every arena of American life — in business, science, education, music, religion, and sports. You know, they didn’t say “sports.” I added sports. (Laughter.) I know a lot of great athletes. It’s true. I added that one. They didn’t have that on. That’s not good. (Laughter.) Going to have to fire that writer. Get out of here. You’re fired. (Laughter.) They’ve done a great job in sports. Great athletes.

Here with us today is George Marafatsos. George was born in the mountains of Sparta, Greece. (Applause.) When he was 10, his family immigrated to the United States. He earned money — a lot of money — helping out his grandfather’s barbershop.

Today, George has built a successful construction business and has served for more than 30 years as a parish councilmember at Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church in Silver Spring, Maryland. (Applause.) Where’s George? George? Where are you, George? Good job. Have you made a lot of money in construction, George? Was that better than the barbershop, or did you like the barbershop better? (Laughter.) See, he covers all fields, from barbershops to all sorts of things. Good. That’s great. We love the construction business, too. (Laughter.)

And there’s the great Elaine Chao. Good. Hi, Elaine. Elaine came. I was very upset when I didn’t see you here, Elaine. Secretary of Transportation. She’s fantastic. (Applause.) Maybe George can build you a couple of roads, right? (Laughter.) Under budget and ahead of schedule. Okay?

Also here with us is Aphrodite Skeadas. (Applause.) For more than 40 years, Aphrodite has served the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society. (Laughter and applause). I worked on that one. I had to get it right. I don’t know if I did or not, but I tried. (Laughter.) She’s helped lead efforts with more than 20,000 women across the country to feed the homeless, provide scholarships to students, and to help families in times of need.

To Aphrodite and every woman who serves with The Society, thank you for bringing hope to American families. And that’s what you’ve done. Where’s Aphrodite? (Applause.) Where is she? That’s what I thought. Thank you very much. Great job.

Today, we’re also grateful to be joined by Father Kosmas Karavellas. Father Kosmas was born in Greece to parents who had fled communist Albania. When he was five years old, his family arrived in the United States on the Fourth of July. Good day to arrive. When he was a young man, sitting in church, a little girl came up to him and said, “I really love the Christ in you.” Soon after, he decided to become a priest. Where are you, by the way? Right? Right? Where are you? Yes! (Applause.) I knew I liked you when I met you backstage.

Now, for more than 33 years, Father Kosmas has served the Greek Orthodox community in Annapolis, Maryland. Is he doing a good job? Doing good? (Applause.) He said, “Yes!” You’re okay. He said “outstanding,” actually. That’s very good. Can’t do better than that, right? Thank you very much. He helped build a new church, and he’s ministered to countless souls.

Father, today we express our immense gratitude for your lifetime of service. You’re an incredible man. I’ve heard it from many people in this room. Thank you very much. (Applause.) Thank you very much.

Each of these remarkable individuals represent the stories of so many Greek Americans in the room. Many of them are in this room with us right now. And are you having a good time? Is everybody having a good time? (Applause.)
You have devoted your lives to your families, your communities, and to our country. Through your grit and your drive, and your will to succeed — you are very, very competitive people, I can tell you that. (Applause.) They don’t ever quit. You don’t ever give up. That’s what we want.

You’ve brought jobs and promise to cities and towns across America. And you’ve deepened the bonds of affection and renewed the pride of patriotism that unites us as one people, one family, and one glorious nation under God. (Applause.)

I want to thank you. God bless you. And again, I want to wish all of you a joyous Greek Independence Day. (Applause.) Thank you.
Thank you for being at the White House. Thank you all for being at the White House.

AUDIENCE: USA! USA! USA

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Thank you. You know, we — if I might say, we have an economy that’s as good as it’s ever been in our history. (Applause.) We have unemployment numbers — (applause) — we have unemployment numbers that are setting records and doing phenomenally. We have a country that’s the envy of the world, from an economic standpoint and from many other standpoints. We’re doing better than we’ve ever done. Is that right, Howard? I think you can speak to it. And, Harry, you can speak to it.

We know there’s never been — rarely, certainly — there’s rarely been a time like this, economically. The world is talking. When presidents and prime ministers and other come to see me, they all say, “Congratulations on this great economy that you’ve built.” And they try and do the same thing. And it doesn’t work out so well, but that’s okay. But they’re trying.

But we have — (applause) — we have an economy that’s as good as it’s ever been. We have car companies moving in. Many, many car companies. I was with Prime Minster Abe of Japan.

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Four more years!

THE PRESIDENT: Four more years. (Laughs.) I was with Prime Minister Abe. They’re sending many companies. Toyota just announced a $13.5 billion investment in the United States. They’re opening up more plants and expanding. (Applause.) And many other companies. So, we’re very proud of it.

But now, before I sign the Greek Independence Day proclamation, which I look forward to doing — I’ve now done it already twice; this is my third time. You know what that means? Time flies. Look how this happened. And I wouldn’t miss it. I wouldn’t miss it. I was supposed to be at another event today. I said, “You mean…” — the people came over — I said to them, “You mean I won’t be able to be there for my Greek friends?” They said, “No, sir. Not this time. But next year.” I said, “No, no, no. I’m doing it this time.” So — (applause.)

So I’d like to invite a friend of mine, Archbishop Demetrios, to say a few words. And then we’re going to sign this great proclamation. Thank you all very much. Thank you. Thank you. (Applause.)

President Trump Welcoming the 2018 College Football Playoff National Champion Clemson Tigers to the White House



This is why we love PRESIDENT TRUMP Thank you God Bless you MAGA !!- Chrissie





President Trump Welcoming the 2018 College Football Playoff National Champion Clemson Tigers to the White House


THE PRESIDENT: Wow! Wow, what a group. Look at that quarterback. Oh, I want to be the agent of that tall, handsome quarterback. (Laughter.) Six-foot-seven. They say great athlete, and he’s accurate. That’s nice. Great job. And you’re 18?

MR. LAWRENCE: Yes, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: Boy, that’s some — you got a good future. (Laughter.) Good future. Congratulations, that’s fantastic. And, Coach, congratulations. I mean, the whole thing.

You —

MR. CLEMENTS: Thank you, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: And the coach — you. What a job, huh?

COACH SWINNEY: Thank you, sir. (Applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: What a job. What a job, Coach. (Applause.)

So, thank you all. We had a little something different. You know, we had to make a decision. We could have seen you in about two months, and I know a lot of you are off to all sorts of camps and they’re all checking you out. And you’re going to be wealthy as hell, in some cases. (Laughter.) In other cases, you’re going to be coming back and you’re going to have another great year. I don’t know if you can ever do 15 and 0. I hear that’s a first time, right?

COACH SWINNEY: Yes, sir

THE PRESIDENT: Fifteen-and-oh.

COACH SWINNEY: Yes, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: Has that ever happened before? I don’t think so. (Applause.) So, I don’t know, but you’ll do as good, right? You’ll do as good.

But — so, I had a choice: Do we have no food for you? Because we have a shutdown. Or do we give you some little, quick salads that the First Lady will make along with the Second Lady. They’ll make some salads. (Laughter.) And I said you guys aren’t into salads.

Or do I go out — Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott — do I go out and send out for about 1,000 hamburgers? (Laughter.) Big Macs. So we actually did. We bought 1,000 — Burger King, all American companies. Burger King, Wendy’s, and McDonald’s. We have Big Macs. We have quarter-pounders with cheese. We have everything that I like, that you like. (Laughter.)

And I know no matter what we did, there’s nothing you can have that’s better than that, right? (Laughter.) And so we ordered. We literally have — and I don’t know, have they started eating and devouring?

AUDIENCE: Yeah!

THE PRESIDENT: I wanted to see — so, it was piled up a mile high. I just wanted to see what was left. I saw it at the beginning. How much is left back there? How much? They go, “Not much.” (Laughter.)

Well, I want to thank you. I want to thank you for being here. We’re truly thrilled to welcome to the White House the 2018 College Football National Champions, the Clemson University Tigers. Very famous team right now, the way you’re playing. (Applause.) Very famous team. Unbelievable. Unbelievable.

We had such a wonderful time two years ago. I got to know your President, I got to know your coach. And — very special people. Really, very special people. What a job you’ve done, I’ll tell you what. And, Coach, what a job you’ve done. Very — very unusual.

You know, there are other teams with a lot of talent, and they’re watching us tonight on live television. You got a lot of (inaudible). (Laughter.) They’re watching us and they’re saying, “We’ll get them next year.” (Laughter.) And maybe they will, but I don’t think you think so, Coach. Right? You feel good about next year, right?

COACH SWINNEY: Yes, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: How many are coming back next year?

COACH SWINNEY: Enough. We got enough. (Laughter.)

THE PRESIDENT: Enough. They’ll have — and a couple of new ones coming in, I’ll bet.

COACH SWINNEY: (Inaudible.)

THE PRESIDENT: Nobody is going to feel bad. That’s good.

Well, we’re going to have you back. And you’re going to be back. And I said that to you last time. But last year — we skipped a year — but I said to the coach last time — I said, “You’ll be back.” And it turned out to be pretty soon.

To the University President, Jim Clements; Board Chairman Smyth McKissick — where is Smyth? Come on, Smyth. You got to get up here, Smyth. Come on. I mean, you are the chairman. (Applause.) Dan Radakovich. Where’s Dan? Athletic Director. Come on, Dan. Get up here, Dan. (Applause.) Coach Dabo Swinney. Everybody knows Dabo. Is he doing a good job? You’re going to keep him for this season? (Applause.) Huh? You’re satisfied with his results, right? I would think.

And all of the incredible players here. And you are incredible athletes, incredible players. Congratulations on your stunning victory against a great team and your second national championship in three years. Pretty incredible.

Joining us today, we have a few of our biggest fans: Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin, who is doing a fantastic — where’s Steve? (Applause.) Couldn’t make your team. We would never be able to make your team, that I can tell you.

Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, who is a great player. He was in the Rose Bowl, actually. Matt Whitaker right here. (Applause.) I won’t tell you whether he won or lost in the Rose Bowl, but they played a good game, right? And he’s a — he was a great football player.

Senator Lindsey Graham. (Applause.) Lindsey?

Acting Secretary of Defense, Pat Shanahan. A big fan of yours, too. Pat. (Applause.)

Another great friend of mine, and Lindsey’s and everybody — and is a highly respected man, big football fan: Tim Scott. Senator Tim Scott. (Applause.) Thank you, Tim. Thanks.

Congressman Jeff Duncan. (Applause.) Thank you, Jeff. Great. Hi, Jeff.

Also with us is our new Chief of Staff and a former congressman from the great state of South Carolina, Mick Mulvaney. He’s doing a fantastic job. Thank you, Mick. (Applause.)

And we have a lot of other great politicians here. Great successful politicians. And I have to say, what you’ve done is very inspiring to a lot of people — to everybody.

The Clemson Tiger football team has earned its place in the history books as the first team since 1897 to finish the season with an undefeated 15 and 0 record. Eighteen. Can you imagine that? That’s a long time ago, Coach. (Laughter.) Yeah, just do as well next year. (Laughs.) That is really — 1897.

The senior players on the team have won 55 games over the past four years — an incredible fact. You’re tied with the Alabama seniors for the most wins in Division I history.

And the biggest win of all came in the final game between these two titans — they are titans — with a jaw-dropping 44 to 16 Clemson win over the Alabama Crimson Tide. And Alabama went in, and they felt confident. But, boy, right from the beginning, the job you did.

Trevor Lawrence — where’s Trevor? Trevor Lawrence. (Applause.) There’s Trevor. That’s what I thought. Showed why he’s among the best in college football, despite being a 19-year-old true freshman, throwing for 347 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions. And, by the way, as I remember, a couple of not-bad runs, right? They said you’re a great athlete, aside from everything else. And you’re also an accurate thrower. It’s nice to see.

This season, he racked up more than 3,200 yards in the air, which is tremendous. And it’s certainly not a bad way to start a college career. Has there ever been a start like this of a college career for a quarterback, Coach — I think, as a freshman? That’s pretty good, right?

COACH SWINNEY: Don’t think so.

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah. I think the coach is satisfied. He feels good. (Laughter.) Trevor, he likes you, okay? You’ll be — I don’t think you’re worried about — he’s not being — he’s not worried about being beat out next season, I don’t think, at the beginning. I don’t think so. Although, there are probably a couple of guys in here, Trevor, you got to be careful, right? There are probably — who’s gunning for him? Who? Whose hands? A couple of guys. Oh, look at them. I know how that stuff works. That’s all right. Good luck to everybody. (Laughter.) Hey, lots of luck right now. It’s a little — great.

The good news for Clemson fans is that he won’t be eligible for the NFL draft for another two years, okay? Good. Great career.

Wide receiver — I watch you — Hunter Renfrow began his career — where’s Hunter? Hunter. Great. (Applause.) Great job, Hunter — as a walk-on. He finished it with two receptions in the championship game, and he was drawing coverage all over the place, wasn’t he? I could see that. They were talking about it. They were all over you. Drawing coverage anywhere he went on the field, which made it a lot easier for some of the other folks. So, great job. Great job, Hunter. Fantastic.

Defensive coordinator Brent Venables is here today. Where’s Brent? (Applause.) Where’s Brent? Wow. And I’ll tell you, he didn’t get a very good location here. That’s — are you okay back there, Brent?

MR. VENABLES: I’m good. Yes, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: Okay. (Laughter.) Three times, your defense stopped Alabama cold in the red zone. True. An incredible feat — a feat that people said couldn’t happen. Alabama averaged 48 points per game this season. Clemson’s defense held them to just 16 in the championship game. Amazing.

Cornerback A.J. Terrell played a leading role, with eight tackles, a forced fumble, and a big 44-yard interception return for a touchdown that put Clemson on the board and set a course — and really set the course for the game. Right from the beginning.

Coach Swinney says that “all of us have greatness inside of us” no matter who we are or where we come from. And, gentlemen, you proved that so much this season. The entire season. Not just the one game — one game was incredible — but you proved it over a full season. No bad moments.

It takes a special leader to bring out the greatness in others. Dabo Swinney is just that kind of a leader. I knew that when I met him two years ago. I said, this guy is a special guy. He inspires. He’s a very unique guy. Isn’t he? Really a unique guy. And he’s getting a little embarrassed over here. (Laughter.) It’s true, Coach. It’s true.

So, Coach Swinney has brought Clemson eight consecutives, 10-win seasons — and I know the competition that you have — three Bear Bryant Coach of the Year awards, and now, a third national championship. And that’s really incredible. Really incredible.

The most important thing is he’s helped countless young Americans set high standards for themselves, reach for excellence, and achieve their full God-given potential.

After the championship game, Dabo — something was really, truly profound, people saw. He said, “When you get a young group of people that believe, that are passionate, that love each other” — that’s six-foot-nine and weigh 397 pounds of pure muscle — (laughter) — he didn’t say that, by the way, that’s — I add that, okay? You know, that helps too, Coach, right? I mean, in all fairness, that helps. (Laughter.) “That sacrifice, that are committed to a singleness of purpose, you better look out, great things can happen.” And that’s what happened. Incredible people. You’ll always go down as winners. The biggest winners. Fifteen-and-oh.

What a beautiful message for our country: If we believe in each other, if we love each other, if we are committed to making life better for all of our citizens, then great things will always happen for America.

We know Coach Swinney is right, because you proved it with your incredible victory and, really, your incredible victories over a long period of time — not even this season.

So to all of the amazing athletes here today that wiped out more food than any human being has ever seen before, including me — (laughter) — I’ve never seen so much -– thank you for inspiring America. You really have.

Fellas, you inspire our country. That was an inspiration. Tim Scott, Lindsey Graham, all of you here, I think that was a great — Congressman, right? That was an inspiration for our country, especially from two senators that happen to come from your state. They were very happy, I will tell you. They were very, very happy people. Very proud.

Congratulations once again to the National Champions, the Clemson Tigers — one of the best teams ever in the history of college football.

Now I’m proud to introduce your coach, Coach Swinney, and your University President, Jim Clements. Very special people. You know, it’s very funny — I meet people and I say, “Hello, how you doing? Everything good? See ya. Best of luck.” And that’s the end. I remembered these two people. They’re very special people. And they prove that by winning like nobody else has been able to win.

And, by the way, Clemson is also a great, great school. So, thank you very much for being at the White House. It’s a very special place; built in 1799. And it just has a special feel about it. It’s just really an incredible — an incredible building. It’s an incredible home.

Thank you all. It’s your home. Thank you very much for being here. And, Coach, please say a few words. (Applause.)

COACH SWINNEY: Thank you, Mr. President, for this opportunity. What a fun day it’s been. It’s an honor to be a part of this tradition. And to be honest with you, it’s really cool that football can create an opportunity like this. And I stand here before you as a guy from Pelham, Alabama, and I’m looking at all these young people from all over this country. And I have to look at my mom, because I came to Washington, D.C. on a train, in the fifth grade, and we didn’t — she didn’t have enough money to come with me. But here we are now, many, many years later, and we’re getting to have a chance to have a moment like this.

So, football matters. And football, and the relationships through football, created this opportunity. And for that, I’m so thankful.

It’s been an unbelievably crazy week. Literally, a crazy week. But it’s great to receive this recognition, to see this team honored for its amazing season.

One week ago today, as a matter fact, we were at the stadium getting ready to go, but — getting ready to kick it off. But one week ago today, we all enjoyed a magical and historic moment as our team became the first 15 and 0 team in modern football history.

And one of the things that we talked about, and you guys know, is — you know, we say all the time: Greatness is not your destiny, greatness is not your right; it’s a decision. You know, we always say: Championships are won when the stands are empty; champions are made when nobody is watching.

And this team — this team right here made a decision to be great, and was special from day one. We had our goals, and y’all all know what our goals are. But more importantly, our daily commitment was greater than those goals. And that’s what it takes to do something special.

And our staff — all of our staff is here — what an amazing job our staff did. It says in Proverbs that, “Where there is no counsel, the people fall. But in the multitude of counselors, there is safety.” And we’ve been so consistent at Clemson because I’ve got a multitude of good counselors. A lot of good people. Unbelievable staff. Great continuity. A bunch of great, young people that buy in and choose to be about the right things and to think the right way, and to lay it on the line for their university and for each other.

And people talk a lot about X’s and O’s in my business. You know, we talk a lot about X’s and O’s. But this game, to me, is really about hearts and souls. And last Monday, you saw on full display the heart and soul of this team. They played with a will to win that just would not be denied.

And one of the things that we talk about all the time, in Colossians 3:23: Whatever you do, you do it with all your heart. It doesn’t matter what you’re doing; you do it with all your heart. Because when you do things with your heart, you go above and beyond; you do the extra. And this team, they put their heart into it, and they went above and beyond in every area. We always say, the fun is in the winning. And it is in the winning. But to me, it’s how you win that matters the most.

On the field — hey, 15 and 0, there’s really nothing else you can say. We had 13 of those wins by 20 points or more. Our seniors, 55 wins in a four-year period — most in the history of college football. We had the number-one scoring defense in the country. And we had the most points ever scored in Clemson history.

But off the field — so it’s not just winning. It’s how you win. Off the field, this very same team that set out to be the best ever, they had the best ever team GPA in the history of our Clemson program. We had 66 guys make a 3.0 or better. Our record, previously, was 56. They shattered it. They went above and beyond in every area.

We won the AFCA academic award, number one out of 130 teams. We won the top academic award, awarded by the American Football Coaches Association. And then, in New York, back in December, Christian Wilkins won the Academic Heisman, which goes to the top student athlete in all levels of football.

So when I tell you this team was committed to excellence in all areas, they were truly committed. And in the end, that’s what we’re all going to be defined by. That’s what our program is going to be defined by; not by these trophies. Our program is going to be defined by the type of men that leave our program. And what they do when they get out in the society, the type of future presidents they become, and governors, and CEOs, and coaches, and teachers, and NFL players — whatever it is — that’s what our program is going to be defined by.

We got a quote that we kind of live by. We started the season and kind of talked about this quote. And I don’t know who said it, but it says this. It says: What you can vividly imagine and ardently believe, and enthusiastically act upon, will inevitably come to be. This team dreamed big, they believed big. And last Monday, you saw them enthusiastically act upon that dream and belief.

But my favorite part of this team, and what I’ll always remember, is that they truly enjoyed the journey. I can’t tell you how many times we kind of hit pause. A lot of times, with young people, everybody wants to hit fast-forward. But this team, we hit pause a lot, and really, truly enjoyed the journey. And it really made it so much spec- — more special for me. And in the end, that’s what it should be about: just finding joy in the journey of whatever it is that we’re doing.

So I want to close, and I really want to give this perspective to our team and, really, to anybody who’s listening. This is a quote. And the whole college football world was captured by Tyler Trent. He was the Purdue football fan that was battling cancer. You probably saw that he just passed, just recently. And here’s what he said. He put out a quote, and he said:

“Though I am in hospice care and have to wake up every morning knowing that the day might be my last, I still have a choice to make: to make that day the best it can be.

Yet, isn’t that a choice we all have every day? After all, nobody knows the amount of days that we have left. Some could say we are all in hospice, to a certain degree. So why don’t we act like it? Where is your gratitude? With Christmas coming up, what are you thankful for?

I had to write my will recently, and I’m just grateful that I can give my family Christmas presents, maybe even for [the] last time. Let’s not forget that my doctors gave me three months to live almost two and a half months ago. So why can’t we live grateful lives? Why can’t we make every day count like it’s the last?”

So for this team, and all you guys moving on, and even the guys coming back, that’s what I would say, is go live and be great today. In order for your Sunday to become a reality, you just got to be your best today and truly enjoy the journey, because I always believe the best is yet to come.

So, President Trump, I can’t thank you enough for this very special opportunity, and all the dignitaries here, to honor our football team on something that we earned and something that happened all the way on the other coast, in California, one week ago. What a special moment we will remember for the rest of our lives. But it pales in comparison to the relationships and the journey that it took to get there.

But on behalf of our team, our staff, the Board of Trustees, our president, and our AD, I want to thank you so much for this opportunity that you gave us. Thank you. (Applause.)

MR. CLEMENTS: Thank you, Coach, for those kind words. Thank you, Mr. President, for your kind and inspirational words. Thank you, Mr. Vice President, for being here.

Good evening. Go Tigers! I’m only stepping up because the President asked me to come on up. So I’m going to go ahead and add to my thanks.

Mr. President, it is great to be back at the White House, for the second time in the past 19 months, with our football team to celebrate our national championship. Mr. President, I appreciate very much your kindness and your hospitality, and the fine dinner that you served us, and for inviting us to be with you today. It is an honor and a privilege to be standing here in the White House as we celebrate the accomplishments of this amazing group of men who represent Clemson so well, on and off the field.

I do want to thank, if I can, Mr. President, our Board of Trustees for their outstanding leadership. We’re blessed at Clemson to have an incredible Board who cares deeply about Clemson academics and athletics. So I do want to thank the entire South Carolina congressional delegation for their strong support of our great university.

And I know, Mr. President, you pointed them out, but in particular I do want to thank Senator Lindsey Graham and Senator Tim Scott for being here this evening and for always supporting us.

I also want to thank Congressman Jeff Duncan, a proud Clemson alumnus and former Clemson football player who does an outstanding job in our home district. Would you please help me thank them for all they do for the university? (Applause.)

And, Mr. President, I do also want to thank our Governor, Henry McMaster, for his leadership of our great state. The Governor was not able to join us tonight due to a scheduling conflict, but he did want me to pass on to you his warm regards.

Tonight, we honor these young men and these coaches who are a wonderful example of the high standards we set in everything that we do at Clemson, from athletics to academics. These student athletes, as you know, worked incredibly hard to accomplish their dream of being the number-one college football team and the only one in the modern era to go a perfect 15 and 0. And I want you to know, gentlemen, you made the Clemson family proud along that journey.

And, Mr. President, our players succeed in the classroom, as well. We had 26 players on this team who earned their degree. That was more than any other team to play in a bowl game. And this championships, as I said, on Saturday was truly a team victory — from our student athletes who worked so hard on the field and in practice, to our coaches, to our recruiting staff, to the social media team, to our faculty, to the academic advisors in the Nieri Center, to the medical staff and trainers, to the facilities team, to the support staff, to our donors, and all of those who worked in any way, shape, or form for this program. All of them played an important role in making this happen.

And, of course, I’m very thankful that this team is led by Coach Dabo Swinney, a man of great integrity and of the highest character, who is on a serious mission that goes beyond football. And he cares so very deeply about developing his players into young men who will be successful in life.

And I do want to acknowledge and thank our outstanding Athletic Director, Dan Radakovich. His leadership has taken Clemson athletics to the highest level possible.

Coach Swinney has a motto that all of you know, and many of us at the university have adopted that, and this is: Best is the standard.

At Clemson, we strive every day to live up to that standard across the entire university. The success of our football team and athletics, in general, has helped to elevate the entire profile of our great university. We’re at an all-time high in almost every possible measure, from academic rankings, to applications, to retention rates, graduation rates, fundraising, research funding, ACT scores, SAT scores, and so many other measures.

We are determined — all of us in this room and back at the university — to keep pushing every single day to make a difference and to take Clemson to greater heights and service to our students, to our home state of South Carolina, and to this great country.

Thank you again, Mr. President and Mr. Vice President. Thank you for inviting us. Thank you for recognizing the Clemson University National Championship team. May God bless you all. And go Tigers. (Applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: And as your president said, that president, he has done some job. We can never forget the great job he’s done as a school, as a university. That’s a fantastic — a fantastic place, with an unbelievable reputation on its own.

I think we’re going to take the entire football team down to another special place, the Oval Office. And I remember two years ago — (applause) — two years ago, Coach, we did that. And a lot of other Presidents don’t do that. And we did it, and it seemed to have worked, right? (Laughter.) Whatever it was. Because they all wanted to come back.

So we’re going to go; we’re going to take the team down. I thought before I did that, I’d ask Senator Lindsey Graham and Senator Tim Scott — two people that have represented your state very, very well and that love your team, and very special friends of mine.

So maybe I’ll start off with Tim and Lindsey, and say a couple of words. And we’re going to travel down to a very, very important location, the Oval Office. Okay? We’ll do that. We’ll take pictures. Good? He likes that. Good. (Applause.)

Please, Tim. Please.

SENATOR SCOTT: Well, God bless you. How many of you guys are incredibly excited to be at the White House? (Applause.) (Laughs.) How many are looking forward to going down to the Oval Office? (Applause.) How about we all — how about we all give President Trump an amazing round of applause for being here tonight? (Applause.)

My comments will be quick. South Carolina is so proud of Clemson University, and specifically the athletes who represent us so well off the field as much as you do on the field. I can’t say it any better than Dabo said it himself a few weeks ago; maybe it was championship night. He said, if you put God first, others second, and then yourself, amazing things can happen. This is a fulfillment of that mission. (Applause.)

SENATOR GRAHAM:
Well, they said be short. I started this speech short and I’ll end it short. (Laughter.) You can tell this is an educated crowd.

So I grew up in Central South Carolina. Anybody know where that’s at? (Applause.) Yeah. So when the Tigers played, it was good. My dad owned the liquor store, so every Saturday was good for business.

I went to Pelham, Alabama on vacation, Dabo. (Laughter.) So, Tim has an incredible story. Mr. President, you have an incredible story. But these young men here, you have a story that nobody else can tell. Go Tigers. (Applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you, Lindsey. Thank you, Tim.

So, Coach, let’s go on down to the Oval. And if the team would just follow — I’m going to say, follow your coach. Well, follow your coach. But let’s go to the Oval. Let’s take some really great pictures that you’re going to have for a long time. A long time.

And, ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much. A tremendous honor. Thank you. Thank you. (Applause.)

President Trump at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s 100th Annual Convention, New Orleans, Louisiana





President Trump at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s 100th Annual Convention, New Orleans, Louisiana

President Trump Speech at Farm Convention in New Orleans

HE PRESIDENT: That’s such a great song. We should just let it play, right? (Laughter.) We had a little luck with that song. And he’s terrific — a good supporter. We appreciate it.

We really appreciate this, too. I know you have a record crowd; that’s nice. It’s always nice to set records. And I want to thank Sonny. And he’s setting records. We’re setting records together for farmers and for agriculture. We’ve had so many good weeks and good days, and it’s only going to get better because we’re doing trade deals that are going to get you so much business, you’re not even going to believe it. Your problem will be: “What do we do? We need more acreage immediately. We got to plant.”

But I will say, we are doing some things with trade that are going to have a tremendous impact. You’re going to be doing business with Canada, you’re going to be doing business with places where it was very, very difficult to do business. It was very unfair. And a lot of great things are going to happen.

So, I want to really thank everybody here, and I want to congratulate a very, very good and exciting football team that I watched yesterday, the New Orleans Saints. (Applause.) You know, it’s — I can see there’s a little group over here. I know who I’m talking to. The rest of the room is going like, “Eh, I don’t want to talk about that.” (Laughter.) But you have to say, Drew Brees — he’s one hell of a quarterback and it was a tremendous game. And so congratulations to the folks from this area and from this great state. (Applause.) It’s a great state.

I’m thrilled to be here in a state that I’ve had a lot of luck with — and I love a lot of people in this state; I know a lot of people — for, really, a truly historic occasion. This is the 100th annual convention of the American Farm Bureau Federation — 100 exactly. If it was 99 — although, I was here for 99, too, I have to be honest, right? I like the farmers. What can I do? I like farmers. (Applause.) Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much.

For 100 years, this organization has faithfully represented the men and women who are the backbone of our country, truly.

Let us all show our appreciation for a very dear friend and a leader — a great leader — Zippy Duval. Where’s Zippy? Zippy. (Applause.) Where is, Zippy? What a job he does. He only called about 100 times to make sure I’m coming. (Laughter.) Thank you, Zippy. Great job.

On this special anniversary, we gather to celebrate America’s proud farming heritage. Through your sweat, through all of your work, the strength of your hands, and the faith in your hearts, the American farmer feeds, and fuels, and sustains our nation. So true.

We are joined today by Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards. Thank you, Governor, for being here. Thank you. Thank you, John Bel. (Applause.) Thank you. Along with many members of Congress who are true champions of American agriculture.

An incredibly talented man, a great doctor — he knows more about healthcare than anybody, and he’s somebody that — he’s really helped us out in so many different ways. And he’s yours: Senator Bill Cassidy. Bill? Thank you very much, Bill. (Applause.) Appreciate it.

A woman who had a tremendous victory — she came in for a short period of time. She was appointed, and it’s always hard when you’re appointed. If you look — I don’t know about this, Cindy, but you take a look — they don’t do too well. You did very well. You won in an incredible state: Mississippi. Cindy Hyde-Smith, thank you. That was a great win. (Applause.)

A brilliant guy — he’s very deceiving. My wife said, “I love watching him on television.” And I said, “Who?” “John Kennedy.” I said, “John Kennedy? I don’t know.” But, you know, I thought maybe she was talking about the other John Kennedy. She was talking — this is a man who is totally brilliant. You know, I don’t know if you know what this means: Oxford. Right? He went to Oxford. Oxford is a very — I’m very much into the world of schools. Oxford — you have to be very, very smart to go to Oxford. And he’s very smart.

He also loves this state. He loves the people. We gave a rally the night before he won that was incredible. And I looked — and I looked at that crowd. We had to have 40,000 people or more at a hangar — an airport hangar. I said, “You know, John Kennedy? You’re going to win.” And he won and he won big. And he’s my friend. John Kennedy. Thank you, John. (Applause.) Oxford. “Oxford John.” (Laughs.) Great.

Congressman Ralph Abraham. Thank you, Congressman. Where are you? Congressman? (Applause.) Great job you do. He does a great job.

Congressman Garrett Graves. And you know Garrett. Thank you, Garrett. Good job. Young, strong, smart. (Applause.) We got a lot of good politicians down here.

And the legend from Louisiana — a man who’s got a lot of courage. He was playing second base and it didn’t work out so well for him that day, but I have never seen anybody with more strength and really more courage than Steve Scalise. Steve Scalise. (Applause.) He got hit hard. He got hit hard. He never even thought about quitting.

He — I was there the night, in his hospital. And they didn’t think he was going to make it. And I looked at him; he wasn’t looking too good, I have to tell you. This is the first time I’m telling you this, Steve; you weren’t looking too sharp. And his wife loves him, because she was a mess. She had tears pouring down. I’ll tell you a couple of these little facts. Your family loves you, Steve.

But all of a sudden, he started making a little progress, a little more. Worked so hard. And then, a few months ago, he was in a baseball game. And it was the Republicans against the Democrats. He’s playing second base. And he didn’t have great mobility, to be honest. In other words, moving like a foot to his right, a foot to the left — that was about it. And he gets the first pitch of the game. This is in a stadium, and a lot of people watching, and it’s on television. And they put him at second base for one play.

And the first hit is a smash — ground ball — hit at Steve. And I’m pretty good at this stuff; I look, I say, “Oh, that’s going right to second base.” It went right in him — right at him. He bent down, stopped that ball, threw it to first. The place went crazy. And he then walked off the field in great triumph. (Laughter and applause.) Who could have done that but my Steve, right? (Applause.) That was incredible. That was incredible.

He’s a courageous guy. He’s a great guy. He’s also a really fine person. So, Steve Scalise — what you’ve been through, Steve, is incredible. And congratulations. Incredible job.

As you all know, there is currently a tremendous humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border. It’s tremendous. It’s been there for years. It’s been there for decades. But because of what we’re doing and because of how well our country is doing —

And please sit down. Please. I’m just looking — and then the media — the fake news — they’ll say, “He got no standing ovations.” You know why? Because everybody stayed standing. (Laughter.) Wait until you see that. It’s true. Oh, they’ll do it. They’ll figure something out. (Applause.) That’s true. (Applause.) That’s true. (Laughs.) (Applause.) That’s true. They can figure it out.

They can take the best thing — I go home, I say, “Darling, I did such a great job. Wait until you see the news tomorrow on something.” (Laughter.) North Korea, China. We’re doing great in the trade deal. China — this, that. They can make anything you do look bad.

But I was watching as you’re standing. And I said, “You know, if they sit, it’s probably better for me, because every once in a while, they’ll stand.” (Laughter.) The other way, they’ll say, “The crowd did not appreciate him. They didn’t give him one standing ovation.” (Laughter.) Anyway, thank you very much.

Women and children are being ruthlessly exploited at our southern border by vicious coyotes — who would think of this? Human traffickers. Now, when you hear the words “human traffickers,” you think about 1,000 years ago, 2,000 years ago. You wouldn’t think it’s worse today in the world — this is a world problem — than it’s ever been.

And the reason it’s worse is because of the Internet. They target young women. They target young children — the Internet. And they come in through our southern border into our country. And they’ll have women taped — their mouths with duct tape, with electrical tape. They tape their face, their hair, their hands behind their back, their legs. They put them in the backseat of cars and vans, and they go — they don’t come in through your port of entry because you’d see them. You couldn’t do that.

They come in through our border, where we don’t have any barriers or walls. And they drive right in and they have no problems. And we’ll get that stopped. We’re going to have a wall. We’re going to have a barrier. We’re going to have something that’s going to be very strong. (Applause.) One of the most important things.

And I’ve built a lot of wall. You saw it the other day. They kept saying, “You didn’t build wall.” I said, “I built wall.” So I actually decided I’d better put a picture for you to see. But we built a lot more than that. And we renovated a lot of pretty good stuff that we made good again. It was in very bad shape.

But we’ve done a lot. We want to finish it because, you know, you can’t have openings. Because if you have an opening, they go here and they just sort of go over this way. They find the open spot, they come in. And we have to build — what we have to build — probably a total of 550 miles including the renovations.

And we’ve done a lot of work. People don’t talk about it. I don’t talk about it because, until we’re finished, the big thing is we have to get it done.

And we’ve had great support from John, your senator; Bill, your senator; from everybody. We’ve had tremendous — Steve is working hard in the House. Your congressmen are working really hard. Really hard. Because it’s common sense. What we’re talking about is common sense.

Last month alone, 20,000 migrant children were illegally brought across our borders. Twenty thousand. One in three women are sexually assaulted on the journey up from Honduras or Guatemala or El Salvador. Think of that. Think of that. Hard to believe.

Vast quantities of lethal narcotics are being smuggled across the border. Most of the drugs coming into our country come in through the southern border — and much of it comes through areas that are not your portals — including meth, and cocaine, and heroin, and fentanyl. Heroin alone, if you look at the heroin epidemic — it’s an epidemic — heroin alone kills 300 Americans a week. And 90 percent of it — at least — crosses our southern border. It comes in through our southern border.

And I’ve spent a lot of time with Secret Service and with Border Patrol and ICE — incredible people — and they show me the methods that they use — how they hide it. They put it in hubcaps. They put it in engines. They put it in areas you wouldn’t believe. They’re brilliant, in many ways. They’re brilliant. You wouldn’t even think of what they do to get things in. And we can stop it. But we can’t stop it if we’re going to play politics. And the numbers you’re talking about are peanuts compared — you’ll make the money back numerous times a year.

In 2017, drugs killed over 70,000 of our fellow citizens — think of that, that’s like a football stadium loaded up — and imposed costs on our society in excess of $700 billion dollars.

In the last two years, ICE officers arrested 266,000 illegal aliens — think of that — with criminal records, including 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent murders or killings.

The crisis of illegal immigration impacts all Americans — threatening public safety, overwhelming public resources, straining our local schools and hospitals, undermining U.S. workers, and claiming countless innocent lives. And I will tell you, I want people to come into our country, but they have to come in legally. They have to come in through a process. (Applause.) Thank you.

As President, the defense of our nation is my highest and most important duty. And this is the defense of our nation, just like we prepare for other nations that you think more traditionally is what that sentence refers to.

When it comes to keeping the American people safe, I will never, ever back down. I didn’t need this fight. This is a rough fight. We’re dealing against people who think that if they can stop me from building the wall — again, we’ve already done a lot of work — but they think that’s a good thing for 2020, because they’re not going to win.

They think if they can stop me from building the wall, that’s good. This is the reason why they don’t want the wall built — because they all know it works. They all approved it numerous times. I mean, Chuck Schumer had his hand up every time this would come up. The senators know this. They’re only doing this because of the 2020 election because I said I’ll build the wall and I’m going to build the wall.

And it’s only one of many things that I promised. I mean, if you look at — (applause) — I got you the biggest tax cut — beyond the Ronald Reagan tax cuts. ANWR, getting rid of the individual mandate, the biggest cuts in regulations in the history of our country — and we’re going further. (Applause.) That might be the biggest reason that our country is doing so much better than other countries and why we’re doing so well.

But they view this as a political thing because this was one of the big things I — I said, “We’re going to do tax cuts. We’re going to do regulation. We’re going to do…” And, you know, we’ve done most of what we said. One of the — that’s a lot of news back there. One of the folks back there said that “He’s actually done more than he promised.” It’s true. I have actually done more than I promised. We’ve done a lot. Even with the veterans. (Applause.) A lot of veterans in Louisiana.

We got Veterans Choice. We got Veterans Choice approved, which is pretty amazing. They’ve been trying to get that for years and years — decades and decades.

And we got Accountability — VA Accountability. When you had somebody treating our veterans horribly, you couldn’t do anything. You couldn’t fire them — whether it’s unions, or whether it’s civil service, or whatever it may have been. But for decades and decades, somebody could do anything they wanted. They can steal, they could abuse our veterans, they can be sadists, they can do whatever they want and you couldn’t fire them. And I got Accountability approved. Everyone said you couldn’t get that — too much power against it. We got it done, and now we can say, “Jim, you’re fired. Get out of here. We don’t want you taking care of our veterans.” (Applause.) That was a big thing. A lot of help from those people.

So we got a lot done, but they view the wall as being a big item that, if I don’t do it, you know, it’s a negative. It’s a negative. And I’m not doing it for that reason. I’m doing it because we have to do it. It’s common sense. We have to do it.

If you look at the caravans coming up, if you look at what’s going on — you take a look. If we didn’t have some of those walls — the military has been incredible. They came up and they built some barriers — they kept thousands and thousands of people from overrunning various sections of our country. We’ve done a great job at the border, but we need that extra — we need that barrier because you can’t do this.

You can have all the people you want dressed in military. You can have ICE. You can have Border Patrol. If you don’t have that barrier, there’s not a thing you can do. You know, they all say, “We like technology.” I like technology, too. But we can have all the drones in the world flying around; we can have all the sensors in the world, but if you don’t have a strong steel or concrete barrier, there’s no way you’re going to stop these people from rushing.

Last week — and we have no idea who they are. And you got some — I’m sure — very good ones, but you got some real bad ones.

Last week, I traveled to McAllen, Texas to tour the border and meet with the heroes of ICE and Border Patrol. These great patriots made clear what they need from Congress and to end this terrible crisis. And we will end it. We will end it. You know, when we have proper security, people aren’t going to come, except for the people we want to come because we want to take people in to help our farmers, et cetera. Very important. We’re going to make that actually easier for them — to help the farmers. (Applause.) Because you need these people. No, you need these people. We’re going to make it easier. (Applause.)

I mean, I’m glad I told you that because, you know, look, you’re in that business and a lot of people don’t understand this. You need those — you need people to help you with the farms. And I’m not going to rule that out. I’m going to make that easier for them to come in and to work the farms. You’ve had some people for 20, 25 years. They’re incredible. Then they go home and they can’t get back in. That’s not going to happen.

But we’re keeping the wrong ones out, okay? We don’t want the wrong ones coming into our country. And, for that, it’s going to be almost impossible to get in. For the people that work the farms, that have been here, that have gone through this very short but good process, that are going to help our country, it’s going to be easier for them to get in that what they have to go through now. So just remember that. (Applause.) I know a lot about the farming world. And, if I don’t, Sonny teaches me.

They explained that there is no substitute for a wall — these are the ICE people and the Border Patrol people — or a physical barrier. There is no substitute. Where a barrier exists, illegal crossings plummet dramatically.

In El Paso, they had — it was one of the most dangerous cities in the country. A wall was put up. It went from being one of the most dangerous cities in the country to one of the safest cities in the country overnight — overnight. Does that tell you something? (Applause.) And I can give you many examples of that.

They say it’s “medieval” — a wall. It is medieval. So is a wheel. I always say “a wheel.” But every time I look out, they all have wheels. You know, they may have gone electric and they may have done lots of different things, but every car I’ve seen still has wheels. (Laughter.) Wheels work and walls work. You know, there’s some things you can’t beat. (Applause.)

That’s why we’ve asked Congress to fund a steel barrier, or whatever you want to call it. This barrier will stop illegal activity, while directing lawful trade, travel, and commerce to our ports of entry. These ports are America’s doors, but doors only work when you have strength. We need strength. Right now, we have weakness.

They’re forming a new caravan in Honduras. Honduras is not helping us. They could stop it. We send them hundreds of millions of dollars a year — El Salvador, Honduras, and other places — Guatemala — hundreds of millions, but they don’t help us, like so many nations. We help them; they don’t help us. We don’t even get their votes often when we need their vote in the United Nations. They don’t vote for us. Why? Because the wrong people are asking them.

So those days are over. So I said just before I came — we’re looking at a whole plan — why are we sending them money if they’re allowing caravans to form right in the middle of their cities? Why are we sending them money? (Applause.) A lot of changes have been made in this country in less than two years, I will tell you that. A lot of changes. And really good changes — changes that people like you, with common sense and smarts, fully understand. And that’s why we’re liking where we are and the country is changing very rapidly for the better.

As part of our overall border security plan, we have also asked Congress to approve cutting-edge technology to detect drugs. There’s incredible technology today. So when these cars do come in through the ports of entry, you have technology today that’s so incredible. We don’t use it. We don’t have it because our leaders decided not to spend the money. Well, you make it back every month — probably more than that — because the drugs coming through the southern border are destroying the fabric of our country. It’s so bad. It’s so bad. (Applause.) So we have to stop it. This technology is incredible.

To fund more agents — we’re putting that high on the list — officers, beds. Believe it or not, we’re one of the only countries — I say “one,” because every time I say something else they’ll say, “Oh, well, there was a country that also did it.” Somebody comes into our country, they touch one foot on the ground, and we have to catch them. It’s called, “catch.” We then take their names and we bring them to a court — can you believe this? — and we release them. But, see, we’re trying to do “catch-and-hold.” “Catch-and-not-release.” But you have to release. So we release.

And they go into our country, and then you announce — these are the laws — then you say, “Come back in three years for your trial.” Tell me, what percentage of people come back? Would you say 100 percent? No, you’re a little off. Like, how about 2 percent? (Laughter.) And those people, you almost don’t want, because they cannot be very smart. (Laughter.) Two percent. Two percent. Two percent come back. Those two percent are not going to make America great again, that I can tell you. (Laughter and applause.) Crazy.

So we have that and we have chain migration, where somebody comes in, and then his mother comes in, his father comes in, his grandmother comes in, his uncle comes in, his cousins come in. We had a guy — a radical Islamic terrorist in New York — area I know very well — driving down the West Side highway. Beautiful — Hudson River to his right. We built this gorgeous park all along the river. It’s gorgeous. People are running; they’re in great shape. We ought to all — some of these guys in the front row, they should do it with me. We could run. (Laughter.) Some of my friends over there. Sonny — maybe Sonny and I will go take a jog. (Laughter.)

But you know what? I’ll tell you, these are people that are great people, and they’re running and they keep — and this horrible person, going down 60 miles an hour down a highway, decides, “Oh, that’s nice. We’ll make a right turn.” Hits a whole group of people purposely, screaming all sorts of things that they scream. And 8 people died; 12 or 13 were injured.

Nobody talks about the injured. You know, some of the injured lost legs, lost arms. You know, this is — they say, “Oh, well, 12 were injured.” You know, like, injured — you think, like, a headache. No, no. They lost arms. They lost legs. One lost two legs. So 12 were horribly injured. And he’s allowed to have his family come here. So they checked, and they said that he had about 22 people came in — chain migration. In other words, because he’s here — so a whole group of people come in. And we don’t want that.

We have another one — the lottery. The lottery. We take people from countries through the lottery. Now, this is common sense. Do you think the country is giving us their finest? No, they’re not. No, they’re not. They’re giving us the opposite of their finest. And we have a lottery system. “Oh, let’s pick him out. Oh, wonderful.” Doesn’t work out too well, this lottery system.

But this is the law. This was passed by Democrats and, I guess, Republicans. You know, maybe they voted — who knows? But these are laws that have to be changed. These are — these are sick, demented laws that we have to change. We can’t allow this to keep happening. The people that are sent to our country are not the people that we want. They come in through the lottery. They come in through chain migration. Think of it: This man that killed 8 people and so badly injured 12, they say he’s about 22 relatives coming in that are here. And take a look at how well his relatives are doing. It’s not a good picture.

So we have to change our laws. It’s very hard because the Democrats don’t want to change them. But I hope that common sense and people like this can persuade them, because it’s gotten to a point where you have to. We really have no choice. And we’re fighting hard. We’re fighting very hard for you. We’re making a lot of progress, I can tell you that. (Applause.)

Here with us today is Jim Chilton from Arizona. Jim’s ranch runs along the U.S-Mexico border. The deadly — very deadly — Sinaloa cartel, one of the most vicious drug cartels anywhere in the world, runs a major drug trafficking route right through Jim’s ranch. Many of these routes used to run through San Diego until the wall was built by us, by me. (Applause.) Sorry about that, Jim. (Laughs.) I think Jim has just got angry at me; he just heard that. Sorry, Jim. Because now, what they did, they went to Jim’s ranch. I think I cost him a lot of money. Maybe he won’t stand up after all. But it’s a very sad situation.

In the last two years, the cameras on Jim’s ranch have captured roughly 1,000 pictures of major drug packers, they call them. For years, these criminals have damaged Jim’s property, injured his livestock, and started dozens of fire, which Jim estimates cost more than $2 million dollars in 2017 alone.

Last June, a Border Patrol agent was checking sensors on the Clinton’s — and Chilton’s ranch when he was shot multiple times by these sinister drug traffickers. Multiple times. And they don’t even think about. By the way, they shoot — it’s not like, “Oh, gee, I committed a terrible thing.” They don’t even think about it. They don’t even think. They wake up the next morning and they couldn’t care less.

As Jim has said, “Every time I leave the ranch, my wife doesn’t know whether I’ll ever return.”

I would like to ask Jim to come up and say a few words. Jim, please come up. Thank you. (Applause.)

MR. CHILTON: Mr. President, we need a wall. (Applause.) I would say we need a wall all around all the length of the border. We’ve got to stop the drug packers bringing drugs in to poison our people. And I would say to Speaker Pelosi, walls are not immoral. (Applause.) In fact, I’ve traveled around the world, and the biggest wall I’ve ever seen is around the Vatican. Now, you can’t tell me that the wonderful priest and officials of the Roman Catholic Church, including the Pope, are immoral. They have a wall. Why can’t we? (Applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you, Jim. (Applause.) Thank you, Jim. And I’m sorry for your problems, but we’ll get it straightened out.

The government remains shut down for one reason and one reason only: The Democrats will not fund border security, our safety, our national security. People come from many countries.

When I was at the wall the other day, Border Patrol said they have 150 people they caught that day who weren’t from Mexico. I said, “That’s a strange statement.” They said, “No, these are the people that weren’t from Mexico.” And I was surprised. Three were from Pakistan. Four were from another Mid-East — two Mid-East countries. And many of them were from other countries, including China — countries all over the world. A hundred and fifty of the people, as he said, were not from Mexico. Now, they caught many, many more, but that’s a 150 people coming from companies that — you know, really, countries that you wouldn’t believe.

They will not approve the measures we need to keep America safe — the Democrats. We can’t do that. We can’t do that because this is of paramount importance to our country. And again, I could take it nice and easy. I could enjoy myself. I could relax. I’ve been in the White House because I think it’s very important to be there. And other people went on a nice, wonderful vacation over the weekend. They had a great time. I would have loved to have been with them. I didn’t like the look of it. I would have loved to have been with them. But we have a very big problem.

This should have been done by other Presidents. Just like the moving of the embassy to Jerusalem should have been done — it was promised by many other Presidents. (Applause.)

Just like we’re doing the job on North Korea, just like we’re doing the job with China — we’re getting it done. We’re getting it done. We’re getting it all done. But it would have been nice if other administrations were able to do it. But we have to do the border.

In the meantime, the USDA is doing everything in its power to help farmers deal with the ongoing shutdown. We thank you for your support and patriotism. And we fight to defend our nation. We are fighting very hard to defend our nation.

And many people that aren’t getting a payment, that aren’t being paid, have let us know in the strongest of terms — a big amount — they said, “Sir, what you’re doing is of paramount importance. Do the job right, and we are with you, 100 percent.” You’d be surprised at how many people have said that. And it’s not easy for them, but it’s a lot of people. (Applause.)

So I’m asking all of our citizens to call your Democrat lawmakers and ask them to pass a bill that secures our border, protects our country, and now reopens our government. Because as soon as they do that, we reopen our government. You would think that would be a very simple task.

On every front, we are fighting for our great farmers, our ranchers, our growers. We are fixing broken trade deals that are horrible. I saw what was going on in Canada — the way you were treated. Horrible. And they treated their farmers great. Great. We changed it with the new trade deal we made with Mexico and Canada.

And opening up new markets to export — many, many new markets are being opened up. We’ve eliminated a record number of job-killing regulations. And the farmers got hit probably as hard as anybody.

We’re reversing harmful federal intrusion. And to keep family farms in the family, we have virtually eliminated the estate tax, also known as the “death tax.” (Applause.) Thank you. Thank you.

Small business owners and corporations and others — small business — it was a terrible thing that was happening, where your parents — you love your parents — they’re farmers — they love their farms. Everybody loves their farm. The kids — they want to grow up on the farm. They want to someday run the farm, own the farm. And they couldn’t because they had very large estate taxes to pay. So they go out and borrow money, and then it turned a little bit bad. And all of the sudden, they’d end up losing the farm because they had to pay the estate tax. We got rid of it, folks.

So if you love your children, you’ll like me. If you don’t love your children, and you weren’t going to leave the farm to them, it probably doesn’t matter too much, okay? (Laughter.) Does anybody here not love their children? Wow, that’s a lot of people — not one? Okay, you don’t want to say. That’s all right. (Laughter.)

That’s like a lot of the people that went to the polls; they voted for Trump. (Laughter.) They said, “We don’t want to talk about it.” Then we won. We won two years ago. In November, we won. (Applause.) And everybody is trying — they’re still trying to figure out what happened. We don’t have to talk about it. We know what we’re doing.

We’re ensuring that ethanol remains a vital part of America’s energy future, with E-15. And we’re making it available year round — all 12 months. That was a big, big difference for the farmers. (Applause.)

Chuck Grassley, Joni Ernst — your senators — a lot of great people were very strong on that. And it also creates additional, because, if you noticed, I think we saw $1.75 for gasoline today, coming in. I like to do that; I’m one of these guys. (Applause.) I’m riding in this incredible car, and I’m driving, and I’m looking at gas stations to see how much is the gas. How many other Presidents — you think Hillary Clinton would have done that? I don’t think so. I don’t think so. (Laughter and applause.)

I’m in the Beast — the world’s most expensive car. It’s like being in an army tank that goes 50 miles an hour, right? I’m in the Beast and I’m looking at gas stations. I say, “Fellas, slow up. I can’t see.” (Laughter.) They say, “$1.75.” That didn’t happen by accident, folks. That didn’t happen by accident. People think it does; it doesn’t. Nothing happens — very few, very little happens by accident.

Nobody else would have done what we did for the farmers, with the estate taxes and so many other things.

In the two years before my election, agricultural exports dropped by nearly $23 billion. Remember that: Before I got here, it was heading south. A lot of people say, “Oh, gee, how are we doing?” It was going bad. If you go back 15 years, soybeans were more expensive 15 years ago than when I got into office. They were less. Now they’re up nearly $14 billion.

In December, just a few days before Christmas, I was proud to sign the Farm Bill. We got it done. That wasn’t easy either. (Applause.) That was not easy. Senators, Congressmen, thank you. That group did it. (Applause.) That was not an easy one, John and Bill, was it, huh? That wasn’t easy.

But we got it done. The first to be passed, on time, in over 30 years. Got it done. And I’ve authorized Secretary Perdue to be strong on work rules for the Food Stamp program, through regulations allowed by the bill. So I know you have a great Secretary. He’ll do what’s right.

The Farm Bill delivers for our farmers on a wide range of key priorities. On critical farm programs, such as crop insurance, you will have the support you need to plan for the future. It increases the amount farmers can borrow so you can expand and improve your businesses.

It also secures the $600 million commitment we made to build a modern, effective, rural broadband across America’s heartland. You’re not well serviced. (Applause.) That’s something the great, great middle part of our country has been complaining about for a long time. You’re not properly serviced. You will be now. You will be now. That bill is a great bill for the farmer.

Last year, when I spoke to you, we had just passed our historic tax cuts. Here with us today is Kalena Bruce from Stockton, Missouri. Kalena is a rancher, and also an accountant for local farmers. Under our new tax plan, which lowers rates for small businesses and doubles the tax child credit — so important, that child tax credit. You know who fought for that? A young woman named Ivanka Trump. That’s all she wanted. “Dad? Dad? We have to get that passed, Dad.” (Applause.) I said, “Okay, Ivanka. Okay. Okay.” (Laughter.) It turned out to be so popular.

Kalena has seen that many families will save upwards of $4,000 in taxes this year alone. Kalena, I want to thank you and all of those incredible people that you represent. And just keep up the great work. Where is Kalena? Where is Kalena? She’s around here someplace. Hi, Kalena. Thank you very much. Great job. Thank you very much. (Applause.)

We’re also leading the most sweeping regulatory reform at any time in our history. The U.S. Department of Agriculture rolled back almost $400 million in regulatory costs last year alone. And this year, they’re projected to more than double those savings.

We’re saving farmers and ranchers from one of the most ridiculous regulations ever imposed on anybody in our nation: the Waters of the United States rule. (Applause.) Disaster — other than the title. Such a beautiful title. It was a total kill on farmers, on builders, on everybody. It was a total kill. Sounds so nice.

In fact, I looked at John Kennedy, when I signed that. I said, “John, I’m going to get killed for this one.” Because what we did was take something — the “Water of the United States.” How beautiful is that? And yet, everything inside was a total kill on you — and other businesses, by the way. (Applause.)

And we didn’t get killed, did we, John, huh? We didn’t. They love it. So many people have come — and, you know, the time when I signed that bill, I had ranchers, farmers, and some homebuilders behind me. And these are tough people. They were strong, tough men and women. And half of them were crying because we basically — our government stole their property. They couldn’t do anything. They couldn’t build. They couldn’t do anything.

They were crying. I said, “What are you crying about?” The one guy — I don’t think he cried in his whole life. I don’t think he cried when we was a baby. He was crying. (Laughter.) He said, “Sir, you gave me back my life. You gave me back my property. They took it away — environmentally, took it away. And you’re going to do the right thing.”

In the audience today is Val Wagner from Monango, North Dakota. Val — (applause). (Laughs.) It’s a good place. (Laughter.) You have a great new senator, by the way. (Applause.) A great new senator. Really great. Val and her husband would love to expand their farm for their four boys, but under the Waters of the United States rule, they would have to pay tens and of thousands of dollars in fines because of the “prairie potholes” on their land. Do you all know what “prairie potholes” are? Yes, you do. I don’t, but it sounds bad. (Laughter.)

To Val and to every farmer, we are going to keep federal regulators out of your — out of your tanks — your stock tanks, your drainage ditches, your puddles, and your ponds. And you know exactly what I’m talking about. You could have a pond — a little pond — and they consider it a lake. (Applause.) And you’re regulated as though it were a lake.

We’re going to get government off your backs so you can earn a living and support your families doing what you love. And I know what you love. Farmers love what they’re doing. (Applause.)

We also passed legislation to rebuild our water infrastructure, including our nation’s inland waterways, which carry more than 60 percent of our agricultural products.

We are replacing one-sided, unfair trade deals. We have so many nations — it’s a one-sided deal. With China, every year, for many years, we’re losing $375 billion — not million, billion dollars. We’re working on that very strongly. You see what’s going on. We’re doing very well.

We have the European Union — they don’t treat us right. They treat our farmers terribly. You can hardly sell into the — they have barriers and they have tariffs that are massive. But with the farmers, they don’t want your product. We’re working with them; they have to treat us fairly. We’re losing $151 billion a year with the European Union.

It sounds so nice, right? “The European Union.” And then the press gets angry. They say, “Donald Trump is not treating the European Union fairly.” Well, that’s because they’re not treating us fairly, folks.

I want to be nice. In fact, they said my poll numbers are very bad in Europe. I said, “They should be.” (Laughter.) No, seriously. They said, “When he started off, he had 87 percent.” That means you could be the king of any country. Now, they (inaudible) because I’m representing our country; I’m not representing those country — you know, one of those (inaudible). (Applause.) True.

It’s true. They said, “His poll numbers have tanked.” And I said, “Oh, damn it. What’s going on? Damn it.” And then I said, “Oh, it’s in Europe. That’s okay.” (Laughter.)

No, we get along well with them. And they’re a lot of great people and great leaders. But, look, I’m not blaming them. I don’t blame China. I mean, China — $375 billion a year, we lose. It’s really more than that, but that’s like the conservative number. I think it’s $504 [billion]. But I’m giving you conservative because I don’t want to be criticized for using wrong numbers, right? (Laughter.)

But I don’t blame China. I was in China making a speech, and President Xi — who’s a friend of — great guy. But he represent them; I represent us. And he’s sitting over here. And I’m talking to this massive crowd of people. And I’m talking about how China is bad, bad, bad. And I’m saying, “Boy, this is — this could be dangerous.” (Laughter.) I’m in China. I’m in Beijing doing this. And I’m saying, “I don’t like this.”

But I looked at him, and I realized — actually during that speech — it’s not his fault or their fault. It’s our fault for allowing that to happen. It’s our leaders’ fault. (Applause.)

Over the last 15 years, we’ve seen a continual decline in the U.S. share of agricultural trade all throughout the world. You know that. It was all going in the wrong direction. It’s changing now. Wait until you see what happens. If we do the right deal with China, you’re talking about massive — they’re already backordering, right? They’re already back. I told them. I said, “You got to start ordering. You’re going to order.” They’re going to order, and they’ve already started.

We’re turning all of that around with fair trade deals that put American farmers, ranchers, and, in fact, put America first. That’s what I’m interested in: America first. (Applause.)

We just opened Argentina to American pork exports — pork — for the first time in a quarter of a century. They needed something; I said, “You have to open it up to pork.” And they said, “Okay.” I said, “Why didn’t you do it before?” They said, “Nobody ever asked us.” (Laughter.) A lot of it is that. You would be amazed. Nobody ever asks.

India and Morocco have both opened their markets to our poultry exports. We do so much for them. It’s incredible.

Japan opened its market to U.S. exports of potatoes from Idaho — (applause) — and lamb from the great state of Texas, yes. No, they just opened up. We asked them. We said, “You got to open up. Sorry.”

U.S. beef has been shipped to Brazil for the first time since 2003. They’re going to have a great new leader. They say he’s the Donald Trump of South America. Do you believe that? (Applause.) And he’s happy with that. If he wasn’t, I wouldn’t like the country so much. But I like him.

And we opened China to American beef for the first time in many, many years. We’ve taken — (applause). You know that. But that was before the trade deal. Don’t even worry about it. This is — that’s peanuts compared to what we’re talking about.

We’ve taken the toughest-ever actions to confront China’s unfair trade practices that hurt American farmers and ranchers. This includes China’s theft of trade secrets from American agri-business. I couldn’t believe how complicated your business is — with the seeds and the genetic farming. It’s incredible. People don’t know this. But your secrets were being stolen by China, and, in all fairness, other countries.

We want a fair deal for American farmers — removing China’s arbitrary bans on agricultural imports, safeguarding our intellectual property, and providing fair market access to all American producers.

We have also made history by finalizing an agreement to replace the horrible NAFTA with a brand new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, called the “USMCA.” A whole different world. A whole different world. (Applause.) NAFTA was one of the worst trade deals ever made by a country. It killed our country.

This landmark trade deal will increase exports of wheat from Montana, dairy from Wisconsin, chicken from Georgia, and products from farmers and ranchers all across our country.
As part of the USMCA, Canada agreed to give fair treatment to American wheat farmers. They will now grade American wheat just like they grade their own wheat. (Applause.) Which, to me, doesn’t mean much, but, to farmers, it means a lot. That’s what they tell me. I said, “What can we do?” They said that would be a big thing — on wheat.

Even the NFL — you know, the NFL, for many years, was having a hard time with Canada, having to do with the Super Bowl. I heard about it, and I asked about it. And it was a lot of money, but it was tiny compared to the overall deal with Canada and with Mexico. So, as one of the things, I said, “You got to treat the NFL fairly.” You know, it’s a great American company. And we had the dispute over the National Anthem, and that seems to have worked out properly, which is great, which I give them credit for now.

And I said, “Listen, when you go to Canada, you’re going to ask for this thing because they’re not treating our company right.” Any company — I don’t care, but that was the NFL. A big company. A great American company. I said, “You’re not treating them well.” We asked for it; in one minute, we solved a problem that they’ve been working on for many years. Total success. And they called up, and they thanked me. But it’s something that I want to do for American companies. It’s easy, it’s short, it took a few minutes, and we got it. They were fighting for years.

Canada also agreed to end unfair trade practices that hurt American dairy exports.

Also here today are Cris and Gary Peterson, and their son Ben and daughter-in-law Nicki. More than 140 years ago, Gary’s great-grandmother began their farm in a tremendous state — I love this state. Remember when they say, “Donald Trump has won the state of Wisconsin”? That state hasn’t been won by a Republican in so long. Bill, you don’t remember any wins there, right? That was a long time ago. That was even before your time. Right, Bill? A long time. And they said, “Donald Trump…” Remember that? Was that a great evening or what? “Donald Trump has won the state of Wisconsin.” (Applause.) We love Wisconsin.

Today, the Petersons have more than 900 dairy cows. Like so many of our great farmers, the Petersons have faced a number of threats to their farm and to their entire way of life.

For years, NAFTA made it difficult for dairy farmers like the Petersons to export milk, ice cream, cheese, and many other dairy products. Under the USMCA, the Peterson family will finally have the level playing field that they should have had for many years. They have it now.

Together, we urge Congress to support American agriculture, stand up for American workers, and hopefully they will approve the USMCA quite quickly.

You know, the one thing I worry about — it’s almost — no matter how good something is, they might not want to approve it, but they’ll approve it. This one — I think it’s going to be very tough for them not. But I think that — I hear it’s in very good shape. And it replaces something that has been so bad to our country. This is a great deal.

As we reverse the damage of decades of unfair trade, we are also providing up to $12 billion in relief to protect our farmers from unfair foreign retaliation. And you saw that recently with Sonny Perdue, where we were helping out during a very unfair period of time when people were actually trying to affect our election. Nobody brings that up. In this case, it was China. I haven’t heard too much about that. Have you heard anything about that? But they were. And we helped our farmers out.

No one understands better than our great farmers that the tough choices we make today reap rewards for centuries to come.
More than 200 years ago, this very city was at the center of America’s negotiations during the legendary Louisiana Purchase.
No one knew how it would all turn out, but President Thomas Jefferson acted decisively for the American people. After months of negotiations, we got what no one ever imagined possible. Not only did we gain New Orleans, we doubled the size of the United States; we secured new parts and ports — new parts of the map and globe that we never thought, and new ports, very importantly for American agriculture; and we made our nation the greatest farm country on God’s Earth. And it remains that. And it’s now, for the first time in a long time, getting better. (Applause.)

Our nation was founded, settled, and built by farmers. (Applause.) From the fields of Pennsylvania to the hills of Tennessee — (applause); from the plains of Missouri — (applause) — to the Big Sky of Montana — (applause); and from the marshes of Florida — (applause) — to the fertile valley of California — (applause) — farmers have always led the way. (Applause.)

The American farmer embodies the timeless values of America. You believe in hard work and self-reliance. You follow the rules, obey our laws, and respect our great American flag. (Applause.) You support our communities, raise loving families, teach your children right from wrong, and you are always loyal to this magnificent nation that we so love.

Now you have a government that is loyal to you, finally, in return. (Applause.) Because we know that government’s first duty is to our own citizens.

We are fighting for the American farmer, and we are fighting for the American Dream, and for products made and grown with pride right here in the USA. It’s what we’re fighting for. (Applause.)

We are defending a cherished legacy, and we are preserving a beautiful way of life passed down from mothers and fathers to sons and daughters, from generation to generation. You are the keepers of this noble tradition. You are the guardians of this majestic heritage.

We are standing up for the men and women who work the fields, till the soil, and harvest the land. We are protecting your rights, your freedoms, and our glorious Constitution.
And we are doing it all with love in our hearts, joy in our souls, and trust in our God. (Applause.) Thank you. Thank you.

To all of the farmers here today and across our country, the greatest harvest is yet to come. The future for America’s farmers is bigger, better, bolder, and brighter than ever before.

I just want to thank you all for being here. I’m so honored to have had this kind of a turnout, this kind of a record. I want to thank the American Farm Bureau for the incredible job they do. I’m proud to be a great friend of the farmer, of the rancher, of the people who so nobly do what you do.

God bless you all. God bless our farmers. God bless the United States of America. Thank you very much everybody. Thank you. (Applause.)

Brand New President Trump Ad: Walls Work




Brand New President Trump Ad: Walls Work

LMAO I love how Trump did this ad!

Acosta mocked for border reporting: 'Exactly – walls work!'

CNN Chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta was mocked on social media after his report from a steel wall from the border "didn't show anything resembling a national emergency" in the area of the border that the president will be visiting Thursday in McAllen, Texas.

"I found some steel slats down on the border," wrote Acosta on Twitter. "But I don’t see anything resembling a national emergency situation.. at least not in the McAllen, Texas, area of the border where Trump will be today."

Republican lawmakers and media members, including President Trump, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and former CNN political analyst Peter Hamby took to Twitter to suggest Acosta was unknowingly making the president's argument for funding from Congress to build a steel wall in order to stop what he calls a "humanitarian crisis" at the border.

"Dear Diary..." President Trump mockingly tweeted when sharing Acosta's report.

"Exactly — Walls work!" wrote Vice President Pence's spokeswoman Alyssa Farah.

"[B]arriers work! Great job Jim!!!" posted White House spokesman Hogan Gidley.

Remarks by Vice President Pence After Meeting with Congressional Leadership on Border Security



Remarks by Vice President Pence After Meeting with Congressional Leadership on Border Security


THE VICE PRESIDENT: Thank you all for coming out. We’ll make a few brief remarks, and then happy to answer a few questions.

We just ended a very short meeting in the Situation Room. The President invited the Republican and Democrat leadership here to Capitol Hill because we are facing not only a partial government shutdown, but we are also facing a humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border.

This past week, the President and I, and these leaders, met on two separate occasions. All those in the room directed staff to spend the entire weekend working over proposals. At the President’s direction, we incorporated Democrat ideas and language in our proposal, and made an offer to resolve this impasse and address the crisis at our southern border.

And today, in this brief meeting, we heard once again that Democratic leaders are unwilling to even negotiate to resolve this partial government shutdown or address the crisis at our southern border. They demanded once again that, before any negotiations could begin, that we would have to agree to reopen the government.

And the President called the question in the meeting. He asked Speaker Pelosi that if he opened things up quickly — if he reopened the government quickly, would she be willing to agree to funding for a wall or a barrier on the southern border. And when she said no, the President said goodbye.

Now, I know there’s millions of Americans — hundreds of thousands of federal workers that are as disappointed as we are that the Democrats are unwilling to engage in good faith negotiations.

Look, the American people know we face a serious humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border. And this President, our entire administration, working with these Republican leaders, is going to continue to drive forward to bring about the kind of reforms that will see to the safety and security of the American people.

But what the President made clear today is he is going to stand firm to achieve his priorities to build a wall — a steel barrier on the southern border — add additional personnel, additional resources, additional reforms to stem the crisis that we face on our southern border. And we’re very grateful for these Republican leaders here and others that were gathered with us for their support.

HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER MCCARTHY: I want to clarify a few things as I just listened to Senator Schumer. I know he complained the time that you had cameras in the meeting. I think we need to bring them back. Because what he described the meeting to be was totally different than what took place.

When we entered the room, the President — again, calling all the leaders together to solve this problem; he even brought a little candy for everybody. He started off talking a little bit about wanting to get this solved — he even spoke last night, saying 45 minutes; he says, “But I think we can do it in 10.”

“I want to turn the floor over,” the President said, “to Speaker Pelosi and Schumer. Tell us what offer you have.” Because we all had in our hands — from the weekend’s work of the Vice President and every office had staff there, about where we were — the different offers, the increases in the work that you’ve done to secure this border.

So we turn to Speaker Pelosi. She began to argue whether we even have a crisis or whether facts are truth. Turn to Schumer again, who said, “We just have to open the government up.” The President would go back and forth in a negotiation in a very respectful way. I saw Schumer continue to raise his voice. The President then turned to the Speaker and politely asked her, “Okay, Nancy, if we open the government up, in 30 days, could we have border security?” She raised her hand and said, “No, not at all.” The President calmly said, “I guess you’re still not wanting to deal with the problem.”

The President wants to solve this problem. That’s why he continues to bring us down. That’s why he’s put offers on the table. Not once have the Democrats offered anything back.

The entire time I’ve been in these meetings, they want to just argue so people can present a fact. They want to argue and debate whether what comes across the southern border.

People are hurting. And as I’ve said before, I will work with anyone that wants to move America forward, that wants to secure our border. This is the goal that everybody in that room — every Democrat said in that room they’re for border security. But you ask me: What American believes border security does not have some form of a barrier? It’s only the Democrats sitting in that room, have I ever found.

And the way they have displayed, and their behavior, is embarrassing to me. And the way to come out to this floor and talk about a meeting in a manner that did not take place in there is disturbing to me.

I want to solve this problem. People are hurting. So I tell the Democrats, “Get back into the room. Let’s not leave. Let’s solve this problem.” Just as the President said, it doesn’t even take 45 minutes. We’re here and we want to work.”

SENATOR THUNE: Well, Leader McCarthy, I think described it very accurately. We all came to this meeting. I heard the President say last night that this could be solved in 45 minutes. And I had hope, coming to this meeting today, that that’s what was going to happen; that we were going to sit down and the Democrats were going negotiate in good faith, and we were going to come up with a resolution.

And they obviously had not moved an inch, and haven’t moved an inch. And they’ve accused the President of not being willing to negotiate. But the President has been more than willing to negotiate.

He’s had the Vice President here, the last two weekends, meeting with members, meeting with members of staff, trying to move the ball down the field and get us on a path where we can get a solution.

And the answer today to the President’s question — and that is exactly how it was phrased — and that is that Speaker Pelosi, “If I were to open up the government today, 30 days from now would you support any funding for border security for a wall?” And she said, “No.” And I think the President clearly interpreted that, as he rightly should have, as clear evidence the Democrats have no interest right now in trying to solve this problem. They clearly want the political issue.

REPRESENTATIVE SCALISE: Well, first of all, I thought the President was very calm in trying to continue to put different options on the table to solve this serious crisis at our border. Last night, he laid out some of the problems and challenges that we’re facing as a country and how we can get a solution.

Today, what he did was start to offer some more ideas. And, look, our teams worked over the weekend. And we could talk about terms all day long, but as some point, the other side has to put a counteroffer on the table. “No” is not a valid answer if you’re serious about solving this problem.

And so, as the President started off laying out not why he wants $5.7 billion, but why the experts who are tasked with securing our nation have said it’s going to take $5.7 billion to secure the border and deal with this crisis, including building a wall — when Nancy Pelosi last week — her only answer was to jokingly say she’d support a dollar.

Now, the American people who are watching this shutdown, the families who are going to be missing paychecks this week, it’s not fair to them to jokingly say, “You’re going to willing to only offer a dollar to solve this problem when you haven’t given any serious credible counteroffer?”

The President has laid out many different options. The President has even said he’ll change the definition of a wall to work with Democrats. He’ll move off of the number. He even sent the Vice President down, weeks ago, to offer a negotiation that would involve a lower number than what our national security experts have said. And not one single time have the Democrats offered a counter, other than to say “a dollar.”

And so today, when the President — and, by the way, nobody slammed their hand on a table. To mischaracterize some of the things that happened in that meeting is not fair to this process. But at the same time, when the President looks at Nancy Pelosi and says, “If I give you another 30 days, will you be willing to support some funding for a wall to secure the border?” And she says, “No.” Not “Well, maybe a little bit more than a dollar,” not some serious counteroffer, but flat-out “no.”

That’s not an acceptable answer to a serious crisis at our border where we’re seeing people dying, where we’re seeing the drugs that are pouring in and the families all across this nation that are being touched in a very negative way by the drugs and the opioids; when you’re going to see paychecks being missed. And there is a quick way to solve this problem, and not once have the Democrats offered a single counteroffer.

And the President has offered multiple times to negotiate in good faith, and the Democrats haven’t given one counteroffer. That’s not an acceptable answer. They need to come back to the table with some kind of serious, credible alternative.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: You want to take this?

SECRETARY NIELSEN: Sure. Just quickly to add, I just — I think, on behalf of the Department of Homeland Security, I’m just thoroughly disappointed. This is a crisis. It is a humanitarian crisis. It is a security crisis. And the reality is that walls work. Everywhere we have put up a wall, illegal immigration has been reduced 90 to 95 percent. Do you want to stop the smuggling between ports of entry? You need a wall. Do you want to stop the human misery that’s pulled between the walls? You need a wall.

We have addressed the ports of entry. The Vice President worked all weekend, personally, with congressional staff. We came up with an offer that would secure the ports of entry by checking every single vehicle for drugs. But the criminals also come between ports of entry. It’s not an “or”; it’s an “and.” We need security at the ports of entry and we need security between the ports of entry.

So I will let you take questions, sir. But this is a crisis. It’s up to the United States Congress to do their job, to take the leadership that the Vice President and President are taking, and fix this on behalf of all Americans.

Q Mr. Vice President —

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Please. I can’t hear you.

Q Mr. Vice President, you said at the beginning that the President is standing firm on his demands for his border wall. How is that compromise, in this context?

And what are you going to say to — I mean, 800,000 federal workers are not getting their first paychecks this Friday; TSA workers, Secret Service agents — people whose job it is to protect people. What do you say to them this week as we’re going into 20 days of a shutdown?

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, I’d say to every American that this President and this administration takes very seriously our solemn obligation to do what’s necessary to protect the American people and uphold our laws.

The offer that we put at the President’s direction, on the table — the offer that was in front of Democrat leaders again today in the Situation Room — represents a combination of approaches. Certainly there is the President’s wall — a steel barrier on the southern border — that the President has put his number on the table. But we’ve added additional resources for personnel, additional reforms, humanitarian assistance, changes in our asylum laws, some of which was informed by our earlier discussions with Democrat leaders.

We’ve been working in good faith over the last three weeks to resolve not just this partial government shutdown, but to address what is an undeniable crisis at our southern border. Even the Washington Post called it a “bona fide emergency.” We have 60,000 people a month being apprehended at our borders, and two-thirds of them are now families and unaccompanied minors. That’s not a situation that our Border Patrol system was ever designed to deal with.

And so we need reforms, we need changes. We need a wall, a physical barrier. But what I think would have to be distressing to 800,000 federal workers and to tens of millions of Americans is the answer in all of this from the Democrats is, “We will not negotiate.”

Q How does it help, then, Mr. Vice President —

THE VICE PRESIDENT: I’m sorry?

Q How does it help that the President walked out of the room? How is that getting closer to a solution?


THE VICE PRESIDENT: I think the President made his position very clear today that there will be no deal without a wall. There will be no deal without the priorities the President has put on the table. But if you could look at the proposal that the President directed us to offer this weekend after spending two days with senior staff, two meetings with leadership, it reflects Democrat priorities as well.

But, frankly, as we continue to hear about the idea that Congress — and I know there’ll be votes tomorrow — that the House will take up bills to open portions of the government, and the President literally called the question — he said, “If I opened up the government quickly, would you agree to border security and a wall?” The Speaker of the House said, “No.” And at that point, I think the President thought there was no longer any reason to be talking at this meeting.

But as we said afterwards, and we had conversations with the leaders before they left, is we hope they will come back to the table.

I’d say to every American looking on who shares our frustration: Call your congressman. Call your senator. If you think the Democrats should be negotiating in good faith to resolve this partial government shutdown and to address the humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border, then you ought to call your congressman, call your senator, and tell them, “Come back to the table.”

And I will tell you, the door here at the White House is wide open. We’re ready to sit down with these leaders and with Democratic leaders and resolve this issue.

Please.

Q My question to you is that Democrats said that the President was slamming his hands on the table, and then he walked out. Could you talk a little bit about — could you just categorize what the President did in the meeting? And also, are we any closer then, do you think, to having a national emergency declared if the meetings are going like this and they’re so contentious?

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, the President walked into the room and passed out candy.

REPRESENTATIVE SCALISE: (Laughs.) That’s true.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: It’s true.

HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER MCCARTHY: He never raised his voice.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: But I don’t — I don’t recall him ever raising his voice or slamming his hand.

But this is a President who feels very strongly about his commitment to see to the security of the American people. He brought the whole issue of illegal immigration to the center of the national debate when he sought this office. And we actually saw a decline in illegal immigration at our southern border in our first year in office.

But the reality is, because of the lack of reforms, because of the lack of a wall, because of the loopholes in our laws today, we are now seeing a precipitous rise in families and unaccompanied children being driven by human traffickers and cartels — individuals who are exploiting vulnerable families, encouraging them to make the long and dangerous journey up the peninsula.

And you could hear the President say this is a crisis of heart and soul, and he feels this passionately. And he left the room today because Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that even if he gave her what she wanted, she would never agree to the border security priorities that we have on the table, and that was unacceptable.

Please. Right here.

Q Mr. Vice President, is the President now closer to declaring a national emergency? Will he do it?

THE VICE PRESIDENT: I know the — the President has made it clear that he’s looking at that. He believes that he has the authority to do it.

Q It seems like it’s deadlocked.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: But I think the President’s — the President’s belief — and I know it’s the belief of these Republican leaders as well — is that Congress should just do their job.

Hey, look, politics is the art of the possible. I served in the Congress for 12 years. I remember times when there were strong feelings on emotions. But eventually, leaders came together, sat down with Presidents, oftentimes in opposite political parties. They heard each other’s priorities, they negotiated agreement, and they moved forward. That’s what the American people expect us to do today.

But when the Speaker of the House comes to the table with the leader of the Democrats in the Senate — after we’ve made days of good-faith negotiations with an offer on the table — and they’re only answer is they will not negotiate until we reopen the government; and when the President says, “Well, if I gave you exactly what you’re asking for, would you agree to border security and a wall,” and they say, “No” — I think the American people deserve better. I think these leaders know the American people deserve better.

And I can promise the American people: This President, and Republicans in the House and the Senate, are going to continue to stand firm until we get the resources and the reforms necessary to end the humanitarian crisis on our southern border, to end the security crisis on our southern border. Then, and only then, will we end this partial government shutdown.

President Donald J. Trump’s Address to the Nation on the Crisis at the Border





President Trump Addresses the Nation.......We're with you President Donald Trump!

THE PRESIDENT: My fellow Americans: Tonight, I am speaking to you because there is a growing humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border.

Every day, Customs and Border Patrol agents encounter thousands of illegal immigrants trying to enter our country. We are out of space to hold them, and we have no way to promptly return them back home to their country.

America proudly welcomes millions of lawful immigrants who enrich our society and contribute to our nation. But all Americans are hurt by uncontrolled, illegal migration. It strains public resources and drives down jobs and wages. Among those hardest hit are African Americans and Hispanic Americans.

Our southern border is a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs, including meth, heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl. Every week, 300 of our citizens are killed by heroin alone, 90 percent of which floods across from our southern border. More Americans will die from drugs this year than were killed in the entire Vietnam War.

In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records, including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings. Over the years, thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country, and thousands more lives will be lost if we don’t act right now.

This is a humanitarian crisis — a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul.

Last month, 20,000 migrant children were illegally brought into the United States — a dramatic increase. These children are used as human pawns by vicious coyotes and ruthless gangs. One in three women are sexually assaulted on the dangerous trek up through Mexico. Women and children are the biggest victims, by far, of our broken system.

This is the tragic reality of illegal immigration on our southern border. This is the cycle of human suffering that I am determined to end.

My administration has presented Congress with a detailed proposal to secure the border and stop the criminal gangs, drug smugglers, and human traffickers. It’s a tremendous problem. Our proposal was developed by law enforcement professionals and border agents at the Department of Homeland Security. These are the resources they have requested to properly perform their mission and keep America safe. In fact, safer than ever before.

The proposal from Homeland Security includes cutting-edge technology for detecting drugs, weapons, illegal contraband, and many other things. We have requested more agents, immigration judges, and bed space to process the sharp rise in unlawful migration fueled by our very strong economy. Our plan also contains an urgent request for humanitarian assistance and medical support.

Furthermore, we have asked Congress to close border security loopholes so that illegal immigrant children can be safely and humanely returned back home.

Finally, as part of an overall approach to border security, law enforcement professionals have requested $5.7 billion for a physical barrier. At the request of Democrats, it will be a steel barrier rather than a concrete wall. This barrier is absolutely critical to border security. It’s also what our professionals at the border want and need. This is just common sense.

The border wall would very quickly pay for itself. The cost of illegal drugs exceeds $500 billion a year — vastly more than the $5.7 billion we have requested from Congress. The wall will also be paid for, indirectly, by the great new trade deal we have made with Mexico.

Senator Chuck Schumer — who you will be hearing from later tonight — has repeatedly supported a physical barrier in the past, along with many other Democrats. They changed their mind only after I was elected President.

Democrats in Congress have refused to acknowledge the crisis. And they have refused to provide our brave border agents with the tools they desperately need to protect our families and our nation.

The federal government remains shut down for one reason and one reason only: because Democrats will not fund border security.
My administration is doing everything in our power to help those impacted by the situation. But the only solution is for Democrats to pass a spending bill that defends our borders and re-opens the government.

This situation could be solved in a 45-minute meeting. I have invited Congressional leadership to the White House tomorrow to get this done. Hopefully, we can rise above partisan politics in order to support national security.

Some have suggested a barrier is immoral. Then why do wealthy politicians build walls, fences, and gates around their homes? They don’t build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside. The only thing that is immoral is the politicians to do nothing and continue to allow more innocent people to be so horribly victimized.

America’s heart broke the day after Christmas when a young police officer in California was savagely murdered in cold blood by an illegal alien, who just came across the border. The life of an American hero was stolen by someone who had no right to be in our country.

Day after day, precious lives are cut short by those who have violated our borders. In California, an Air Force veteran was raped, murdered, and beaten to death with a hammer by an illegal alien with a long criminal history. In Georgia, an illegal alien was recently charged with murder for killing, beheading, and dismembering his neighbor. In Maryland, MS-13 gang members who arrived in the United States as unaccompanied minors were arrested and charged last year after viciously stabbing and beating a 16-year-old girl.

Over the last several years, I’ve met with dozens of families whose loved ones were stolen by illegal immigration. I’ve held the hands of the weeping mothers and embraced the grief-stricken fathers. So sad. So terrible. I will never forget the pain in their eyes, the tremble in their voices, and the sadness gripping their souls.

How much more American blood must we shed before Congress does its job?

To those who refuse to compromise in the name of border security, I would ask: Imagine if it was your child, your husband, or your wife whose life was so cruelly shattered and totally broken?
To every member of Congress: Pass a bill that ends this crisis.
To every citizen: Call Congress and tell them to finally, after all of these decades, secure our border.

This is a choice between right and wrong, justice and injustice. This is about whether we fulfill our sacred duty to the American citizens we serve.

When I took the Oath of Office, I swore to protect our country. And that is what I will always do, so help me God.
Thank you and goodnight.

First Lady Melania Trump, first lady and role model, rises above Democratic pettiness





First Lady Melania Trump, first lady and role model, rises above Democratic pettiness

by Tammy Bruce


Despite the efforts of a miserable American media and liberal establishment to malign her, first lady Melania Trump continues on with work that endears her to the American public.

Her agenda as first lady is expansive, focusing on children and the importance of all aspects of their lives, from self-esteem to education to health care. Our nation has a first lady who is smart, beautiful and a person of faith. She is committed to her family and to this nation.

Her sense of self-worth is not reliant on whether or not she’s on the cover of Vogue or invited to certain cocktail parties. She is her own woman -- strong, independent, and won’t be bullied.

And for today’s liberals and Democrats, that is her crime.

Mrs. Trump has suffered ignominious insults and attacks, first as candidate Donald Trump’s wife, but inexplicably even more so as the first lady. Yet, it is her reaction to the critics that sets her apart and highlights just exactly how ugly others become when jealousy and envy take root.

For two Christmases now, we’ve enjoyed her sense of style, which has transformed the White House into a dazzling reminder of the beauty of the season.

But even Christmas decorations, and daring to create an elegant and inviting environment at the nation’s house, elicits petty whining by the chattering class.

During an interview at an event to talk about the opioid crisis and its impact on young people, she was asked about the “controversy” spun by the media and Democrats (but I repeat myself) over the White House Christmas decor. Her answer was classic Melania Trump, leading with grace, “We are in the 21st-century, and everybody has a different taste,” she said. “I think they look fantastic. I hope everyone will come over and visit it. In real life, they look even more beautiful.”

What we are watching is the return of “Mean Girls,” those who hounded the new girl in high school who dared to be prettier, smarter and nicer than they were.

In an effort to damage the reputation of the horribly more interesting girl, they would taunt their target in the hallways, spread rumors and tell lies. In the pre-Twitter world of bullying, these jackals would scrawl their 140-character insults, threats and abuse by using a Sharpie pen on her locker.

Clearly, all tactics of the insecure and jealous. In other words, they are today’s Democrats but at 14 years old.

We’ve come to expect pettiness from the usual suspects in media and politics. But now former first lady Michelle Obama, a woman who sets the tone for Democrats, has apparently revealed her famous “when they go low, we go high” encouragement of her husband’s supporters was just a skit.

Piers Morgan, the former CNN host, now a presenter on ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” and admirer of the Obamas, wrote a scathing column for the Daily Mail expressing his shock and dismay at Mrs. Obama for “going low” with her attacks on Mrs. Trump.

He wrote, “Just when I thought there was one person in public life that soared effortlessly and admirably above the incessantly ugly partisan trash-talk that pervades every second of American airspace these days, Mrs. Obama has let me down. And frankly, she has let herself down too. Appearing on last night’s Jimmy Fallon show, Michelle inexplicably decided to plunge the b----y knife firmly into the back of her successor as first lady, Melania Trump.”

Morgan then described Fallon seemingly wanting to hear what Mrs. Obama was thinking as she and her husband were boarding Air Force One one last time after leaving the Trump inauguration.

“But before he could even finish the question, Michelle interrupted with a sneering: ‘Bye Felicia!’ Fallon collapsed with laughter and the audience whooped with joy …, ” continued Morgan, who then explained the phrase originated on a television show and is a dismissive smear young people especially would understand.

Morgan then detailed a number of other negative public comments Mrs. Obama has made targeting Mrs. Trump.

“How sad to now see the same Michelle Obama, a woman I greatly admire, now herself go so low simply to belittle her successor, flog a few more books and further line her already bulging pockets,” he concluded.

In his first inaugural address, President Abraham Lincoln expressed his belief that we could trust in the better angels of our nature. Today, we have too many examples of Democrats encouraging and appealing to the worst in people.

We can choose to reject that toxic environment and look to role models -- like Melania Trump -- who encourage us to stay focused and rely on our better angels to make the world a better place.

Thank You President Trump! 2018 Ends with 312,000 Jobs Created in December; Strong Year for the Job Market



2018 Ends with 312,000 Jobs Created in December; Strong Year for the Job Market

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released its final monthly Employment Situation Report of 2018, marking a great year for American workers and the economy as a whole. Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 312,000 jobs in December (see figure), far exceeding market expectations (180,000) as well as besting the average monthly additions from 2017 (182,000) and 2016 (195,000).

Continuing the historic streak of positive jobs gains, 2018 experienced more job creation than the previous two years, with 2.6 million new jobs over the course of the year compared with 2.2 million in 2017 and 2.3 million in 2016. Furthermore, this growth was consistently strong throughout the year; the economy has added over 100,000 jobs every month in 2018, just the second time since 2000 that this has occurred for a full calendar year. Since President Trump was elected in November 2016, the U.S. economy has created 5 million jobs.

There were job gains across many industries in December, including significant gains in education and health services (82,000), leisure and hospitality (55,000), and in manufacturing (32,000). Manufacturing has been a bright spot since President Trump’s election, and now averages 20,000 new jobs per month compared to 8,000 per month in the four years prior. The 284,000 manufacturing jobs created in 2018 was the most the industry has added in a calendar year since 1997. The widespread employment gains across industries also occurred for 2018 as a whole. The professional and business services (583,000) and education and health services (517,000) industries produced over half-a-million jobs each. Employment in the leisure and hospitality industry increased by 306,000 jobs. Construction employment rose by 280,000 jobs.

Wages are also rising, indicating that workers are taking home bigger paychecks. Nominal average hourly earnings rose by 3.2 percent over the year. This matches October, which posted the largest 12-month growth in nominal average hourly earnings since April 2009. The most recent inflation data from November using the Federal Reserve’s preferred Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) price index found that prices increased by 1.8 percent – suggesting that real wages are rising (December inflation data will be available later this month).

A separate household survey released by BLS shows that although the unemployment rate increased by 0.2 percentage points (p.p.) to 3.9 percent in December, it went up for the right reasons: more workers are coming off the sidelines and looking for work, signaling that the U.S. economy continues to hum along. The labor force participation rate, which measures the share of the civilian non-institutional population who are in the labor force (either employed or looking for work), rose by 0.2 p.p. over the month to 63.1 percent in December. Despite the unemployment rate uptick, the unemployment rate remains near historic lows. This is only the 13th month since 1970 that the unemployment rate has been below 4 percent, with 8 of these instances occurring under President Trump in 2018.

The strength of the labor market in 2018 also was widespread, affecting people of all backgrounds and education levels throughout the nation. Over the course of the year, multiple new records for low unemployment rates within demographic groups were set. In December 2018, the unemployment rate for Hispanics fell to a series low (4.4 percent), matching October 2018. Record low unemployment rates were also achieved this year for African Americans (5.9 percent in May), Asians (2.2 percent in May), and individuals with less than a high school degree (5.0 percent in July). In November 2018, the unemployment rate for teens (ages 16 to 19) was at its lowest rate since 1969. The November 2018 unemployment rate for individuals with a high school degree but no college fell to its lowest rate since 2000, while the October 2018 unemployment rate for individuals with some college education dropped to its lowest rate since 2001.

The continued low unemployment rate and the consistent employment gains of more than 100,000 jobs every month in 2018 demonstrate the effectiveness of the Administration’s economic policies. As workers continue to come off the sidelines, there also remain opportunities for sustained employment growth as we enter the new year.
