Ex-House Rep. Michele Bachmann exalts Trump: We will ‘never see a more godly, biblical president’


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.)

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

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.

President Trump Has Kept His Promises



President Trump Has Kept His Promises

By: Robert L. Wilkie
Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs


Not since President Lincoln has another president done more to 'care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan'


The facts are clear: No president has done more in two years to strengthen our military and reform the Department of Veterans Affairs to better serve our nation’s heroes than President Donald Trump.

From pushing the Islamic State terrorist organization to the brink of defeat, to increasing troop strength and modernizing our military’s equipment on the battlefield, Trump sends a strong signal to any country or terrorist group that confronting the United States or our allies is a losing proposition.

Until Trump, no candidate in history had made serving our veterans the centerpiece of a presidential campaign. In office, Trump has kept his promise, improving the lives of America’s veterans through a number of key initiatives that enact more reform across the organization than at any other time in decades.

These impactful reforms include the MISSION Act, which provides real health care choice to eligible veterans, and the Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, which makes VA one of the most accountable agencies in the federal government.


Trump has also done more in less than two years to improve transparency for veterans than any of his predecessors. In contrast to every other health system in the nation, VA now posts wait times online for every VA medical center across the country, and it updates them on a weekly basis. The agency is also the first hospital system in the nation to post online its opioid prescription rates, accountability and settlement information, and chief executive travel.

Under Trump, VA is also adopting a joint electronic health record system that aligns with the one used by the Department of Defense. This transition will result in all Defense and VA patient data residing in one common system, better integrating information across components and enabling seamless care as those who fight for our country’s freedoms transition back into civilian life.

Make no mistake: President Trump has kept his promises to keep our country safe, revitalize our military, and reform VA. Not since President Lincoln has another president done more to “care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan,” just as our nation deserves.

Trump's Nationalism Is Undoing Decades of GOP Failure





Trump's Nationalism Is Undoing Decades of GOP Failure

Townhall


One thing the American Right has forgotten through their bromides in favor of hyper individualism and the meandering status quo-ism is that humans are inherently collective beings. Now while things like land collectivization and seizing the means of production are terrible as public policies, humans do yearn to connect with others under the banner of a shared, common culture, language, background, and history.

Families, tribes, churches, fraternities, and other voluntary organic collectives are an integral and necessary part of the human experience. One such collective, I argue, is more important than all of those. It is the nation. Without a strong nation, all else collapses beneath it. When Americans are united amongst a common patriotism, everything else seems to fall into place. When they are not, the Constitution becomes little more than a piece of paper and society crumbles.

The neoliberal and neoconservative consensus - indeed, two wings on the same bird of prey feasting away at what's left of the health and prosperity of America - have pushed a false ideology upon us. This ideology rewards rampant consumerism instead of thrift. It rewards selfishness at the expense of the greater good. It has caused free-falling birth rates, widespread cultural degeneracy, a fractured and atomized populous, the dumbing down of society, and now jeopardizes the future of Western Civilization as we know it.

This consensus is under attack like never before. With the legacy media faltering and public rage on the uptick, the perfect storm was formed and the inconceivable effect of President Donald Trump happened. This has sent shockwaves through the world, as the madman-in-chief dances to the beat of his own drummer. But there is clearly a method to his madness. He has re-introduced nationalism back into the public zeitgeist at a time when it is desperately needed. This is the antidote to the failed Republican dogma that has allowed the left to grow so formidable over the years.

Conservatives, many of whom are well-meaning polite individuals, fell into the trap of being assimilated to the establishment and adopting their value system. After years in the Beltway, they grew to care more about how some cocktail parties viewed them than doing what was right for their nation. Unfashionable issues on borders, foreign policy, trade, etc. can get you isolated in Washington DC and quickly out of a job. These conservatives were happy to cling to their think-tank credentials, their media perches, their bureaucratic positions, and other establishment spoils while America was pissed away on their watch.

Groups such as libertarians on the other hand were once the insurgents pushing back against the conservative status quo, but once they achieved a bit of success, they fell into the same trappings. They began to moderate themselves at the behest of political consultants, grew comfortable in their government posts, became accustomed to the attention and accolades of the spotlight, and could shortly no longer be differentiated from the establishment. Now, they are situated on the sidelines as irrelevant as they ever were with very few exceptions.

Trump's aggressive push for nationalism will make it difficult for the mistakes of conservatism and libertarianism to be replicated once more. By keeping the focus on 'America First', it makes it difficult for special interests and oligarchs to co-opt the phenomenon he built. When the Koch Brothers propose globalist trade deals under 'free market' pretenses, it was difficult for a tea party conservative or libertarian to mount an effective argument against that policy. But for a nationalistic Trump Republican, it is second nature. If it doesn't put America first, the policy must be rejected every single time without exception.

Trump's message discipline is admirable. Although he may get caught in the weeds while making attacks on Twitter, he never loses focus of the big picture. It's not about big government or small government. It is not about a set of esoteric principles that are no longer germane. It is not about maintaining the facade of prestige within rotting government institutions. It is only about making America as independent, secure, healthy and prosperous as possible. Nationalism is the only possible defense of Western Civilization against radical leftist globalism. We are blessed to have a President in the oval office who understands that reality.

Never backs down. Lives rent free in the dims heads. Always inside the dims OODA loop And when he strikes ......It is unexpected and devastating .


And now and then he drops a gem, like when he was down in Florida the other night, and says to the audience.

Trump-”So, show me by hands who’s voted yet.”

Almost everyone in the room raises their hands.

Trump-”Oh, My! Show me again. How many people have already voted?”

Just about the entire room raises their hands.

Trump-”Then what the hell am I doing here?”

Or last night, he’s lamblasting the media for not saying on little thing positive about his accomplishments, and he’s rattling them off.

He finally stops and says:

Trump-”Well, if no one is going to talk about the great things I’m doing, I guess I’ll just talk to myself.”

President Trump INCREDIBLE Speech at Our Pledge to America’s Workers Event at White House



President Trump INCREDIBLE Speech at Our Pledge to America’s Workers Event at White House

‘This is the blue-collar, middle-class Trump Economy’

As Larry Kudlow sat with President Donald J. Trump and Ivanka Trump in the White House State Dining Room, he revealed a telling fact about the new American economy under the Trump Administration.

“We are looking at blue-collar wage increases [that] are rising faster than white-collars,” said Kudlow, Director of President Trump’s National Economic Council. “Now, I’m not against white collars, but I’m saying this is the blue-collar, middle-class Trump Economy”—one where manufacturing and other industries that fuel prosperity in America’s heartland are thriving once again.

In the past, that wasn’t always the case. Too often, economic growth would concentrate in the hands of a wealthy few rather than lift up all American workers.

Just over three months ago, President Trump made it clear that his Administration wouldn’t let that happen during this economic boom. In July, he unveiled his Pledge to America’s Workers, calling on private companies and associations to expand programs that educate, train, and reskill Americans from high-school age to near-retirement.

Ivanka Trump has helped lead the charge, traveling to more than 14 states to visit job centers and technical education programs across America. She was also instrumental in helping shepherd the Perkins Career and Technical Education Act through Congress this summer, marking the program’s first modernization in more than a decade. Perkins CTE authorizes more than $1 billion in vocational and career-focused education funding for more than 11 million American students.

Since July, more than 160 companies have answered the President’s call to invest in career-development opportunities for our workforce. This summer, Walmart pledged 1,000,000 such opportunities. IBM pledged 100,000. FedEx pledged more than 500,000. And today, President Trump announced that the total number of commitments under the Pledge now exceeds 6 million in just over 3 months.

“The previous Administration said there won’t be any more manufacturing jobs—you’re going to need a magic wand and all of that,” President Trump said today. “Well, we had the magic wand, because we have almost 600,000 manufacturing jobs since the election. And it’s going to go much, much higher than that.”'

Halloween at the White House 2018




Halloween at the White House 2018

On Sunday, October 28, 2018, the South Lawn will fill with little ghosts and goblins, witches, dragons, and other imaginative costumes as the Trump Administration celebrates this year’s Halloween at the White House.

Gates will be open to military families, and local schoolchildren with their parents from 4:30 to 7:30 PM (tickets were distributed by the Department of Education and the White House Military Office).

Cornstalks as tall as the Truman balcony will hang from the White House columns, while colorful fall foliage drapes the South Portico staircases. A sprawling harvest of decorative pumpkins, gourds, and hay bales will be on display for the trick-or-treaters.

The President and First Lady will hand out commemorative candy in front of the South Portico, and several departments and agencies will be in attendance along with a variety of fun items and activities for the children to participate in. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will have a moon carpet set up on the South Lawn, and robotics displays will be set up by First Lego Robotics League from the Department of Education. The Department of Transportation will hand out paper airplanes, the Department of Agriculture will feature a tractor for the kiddos to explore, and the Department of Health and Human Services will have emergency vehicles on display. Children will also be able to see the Presidential Limo known as “The Beast,” which is being brought in by the United States Secret Service.





Before departing the grounds, children will be invited to explore a hay bale maze.

Adding to the festive holiday atmosphere, the Rolling Strings – the United States Air Force Band – will play traditional Halloween songs and modern tunes.

For those of you who are not familiar with Illinois, Murphysboro is in the heart of what is known locally as “Little Egypt”, which has the Mississippi river to the west and the Ohio river to the south. Accessible by Interstate from a couple different directions. the region was settled by people from Georgia back in the 1800’s, and in many ways, is much more like Georgia than most of the rest of the Midwest.

This is where people still fly the confederate flag - in Illinois! There are lots of coal miners.

The #Walkaway Movement begun by one man, Brandon Straka, and it has grown exponentially




Americans are coming together the weekend of Oct. 26-28th to #WalkAway from the Democratic Party. WalkAwayMarch.com


The #Walkaway Movement begun by one man, Brandon Straka, has grown exponentially.

This group is populated by Americans who have become fed up with the leftist/Marxist/Socialist/Communist side of things and who are now pro-America, pro-conservative, pro-right side of things.

Many in the movement are African Americans and/or are gay like Brandon - and they have "seen the light" and are walking away from the Demonrats.

This has taken a great deal of courage on their part since to walkaway often means losing one's friends and family.


The March will begin with speeches and music at 12 noon and then will march and then will have more speeches and music at about 2:30.


Dinesh D’Souza will be a main speaker but there are many speakers.

More information about the speakers and events can be found
here: https://walkawaymarch.com/



Chrissie aka Wild Thing's comment...........


Thank you Brandon for opening so many eyes! Tell minorities on the left, who have been told their whole lives that they are not welcome on the right because of the bigotry and hatred, that they are welcome. Tell them there is a seat at the table on the right for everybody. This is a movement of Patriots from all walks of life .

WE ARE ALL AMERICANS and we will not surrender our country.

President Donald Trump Remarks following shooting near the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania




President Donald Trump focused on the "hate in our country" following a shooting near the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where multiple people were killed. Trump also stated that the death penalty and an increase in armed guards could have prevented the shooting.


Police from across the city of Pittsburgh are responding to an active shooting situation at the The Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill.

Police have requested that residents stay inside their home as they have exchanged gun fire with a suspected gunman.

When officers arrived the gunman reportedly shot at them, forcing officers to use their vehicles as a shield.

The Synagogue was reportedly full of people for a Saturday service and police say they’ve received several calls from people barricaded inside the Synagogue.

10 killed in Pennsylvania synagogue shooting

Gunman opens fire at Synagogue, kills at least 8. Shooter is reportedly in custody.

At least 10 people were killed after a gunman opened fire at Pittsburgh's Tree of Life synagogue. According to the report, the gunman yelled "All these Jews need to die".

The gunman has been preliminarily identified as 46-year-old Robert Bowers. The shooting reportedly happened during a circumcision ceremony and over 12 people were shot. 80 people were in the Synagogue during the shooting. Bauer also shot three police officers.

The attack was condemned by President Trump, who tweeted that he is "Watching the events unfolding in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Law enforcement on the scene. People in the Squirrel Hill area should remain sheltered. Looks like multiple fatalities. Beware of active shooter. God Bless All!"

"I was heartbroken and appalled by the murderous attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue today," said Prime Minister Netanyahu.

"The entire people of Israel grieve with the families of the dead. We stand together with the Jewish community of Pittsburgh. We stand together with the American people in the face of this horrendous antisemitic brutality and we all pray for the speedy recovery of the wounded."

Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett condemned Saturday's grisly shooting, tweeting that "The State of Israel and the Israeli government received with shock and pain the reports of the terrible attack on the Jewish community in Pittsburgh. We anxiously follow the reports and pray that the event will end soon."

"At the same time, I have now instructed the Ministry of Diaspora Affairs to prepare to assist the community in every possible way. Our hearts are with the families of those killed and injured. May the memory of the murdered be blessed. "

Israeli officials say that Prime Minister Netanyahu is closely following the situation in Pittsburgh. The shooting was also condemned by Jewish Agency Chairman Isaac Herzog.

"A terrible massacre during the Shabbat service at the Etz Hayyim Synagogue in Pittsburgh," said Herzog. "We at the Jewish Agency are sore and distressed by the disaster of the warm Jewish community of Pittsburgh. The Jewish Agency is ready to assist in any way to the Jewish community in Pittsburgh and expresses its deep sorrow over the loss of life and the injury to the wounded."

Amazing Trump Prayers - FLOTUS shocked us all with the Lord's Prayer

Quote below from QANON

There has been a constant focus on prayer for our POTUS. For many years we were under this dark cloud of depression and it appeared that there was no way out. All roads pointed to the USA with no hope or future.
Then, out of nowhere, we had someone who could defeat the enemy of our Nation. One of the first things that made me feel that we could be restored was when our FLOTUS delivered her prayer in the hangar in Florida. I was stunned. I was filled with tears.
This video showcases some of those prayers and shows what our focus should be on...prayer.

Imagine at age 72, addressing one rally after another with energy and enthusiasm, that is a wonder to watch and hear. If it had been Hillary - people would have been physically carrying her around with doctors and attendants just to support her even to stand up let alone speak coherently without medication.

President Trump vows to send as many troops to the border ‘as necessary’ to stop caravan

President Trump vows to send as many troops to the border ‘as necessary’ to stop caravan

USA Today


During an interview with USA Today yesterday, President Donald Trump “vowed to send as many troops as necessary to the U.S.-Mexican border to block a growing caravan of Central American migrants, calling their trek ‘an assault on our country,’” David Jackson, Susan Page, and John Fritze report.


HOUSTON – President Donald Trump on Monday vowed to send as many troops as necessary to the U.S.-Mexican border to block a growing caravan of Central American migrants, calling their trek “an assault on our country.”

In an exclusive interview with USA TODAY aboard Air Force One, the president said there were “people from the Middle East” in their ranks, reiterating a claim he made without evidence in a morning tweet. The president declined to say whether his assertion was based on intelligence agencies or some other source.

While Trump has made unsubstantiated charges that Democrats had funded the migrants, he said the television footage that showed them straggling north was rebounding to the political benefit of Republicans in the midterms. The caravan could be seen on a TV, tuned to Fox News, on the wall of his office aboard the presidential aircraft.

“I think this could be a blessing in disguise because it shows how bad our laws are,” he said. “The Democrats are responsible for that.”

That was akin to the unexpected political repercussions of the bitter Senate confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh, now a Supreme Court justice. The controversy helped energize GOP voters in advance of the Nov. 6 elections, he said.

How many troops was he prepared to send to the border?

“As many as necessary,” he replied.

Trump has pummeled Democrats for weeks on immigration, harping on a proposal raised by some in the liberal wing of the party to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Though the idea is unlikely to ever become law, Trump has used it to paint Democrats as soft on crime and border security.

"In that caravan you have some very bad people and we can’t let that happen to our country," Trump said.

This is a note from someone that tried to go to the rally...........

"I got there about an hour and a half before he arrived. Big mistake when I arrived all the parking was gone in both parking lots had to walk 3 miles about a quarter mile up I ran into the end of the line. The end of the line was 2 miles long. I decided I was probably not going to get in LOL and walked up the line to the front just to see the crowds. It was massive I have not seen that many people even at some of the best concerts I've been to. The Hanger supposedly held 4000 there was at least that many outside. Walked 6 miles tonight just to see him and did not get lucky enough to this time. Next time I will be taking the day off and going early in the morning"

Continued Photos of Kanye West Visit to See President Trump in Oval Office



Kanye gives President Trump, Ivanka, and Jared 'Make America Great', 'Make Earth Great Again', and 'Travel Space Again' Hats!

"They tried to scare me to not wear this hat, my own friends, but this hat it gives me, it gives me power,' Kanye West asserted. 'You know, my dad and my mom separated, so I didn't have a lot of male energy in my home. And also, I'm married to a family that, you know – not a lot of male energy going on. It's beautiful though,' he said, breaking into nervous laughter as he spoke about his wife Kim Kardashian West and her family.

The rapper said that he loves Hillary Clinton but the slogan 'I'm with her' didn't empower him to be the kind of man or father he felt his son deserved.

'I love Hillary. I love everyone, right? But the campaign "I'm with her" just didn't make me feel, as a guy that didn't get to see my dad all the time, like a guy that could play catch with his son,' he said. 'It was something about, when I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman. That's my favorite super hero. He said the hat is like a Superman cape and said that Trump made him a billionaire.

West told Trump, 'I love you,' as he came around to give him a hug. The president informed him that the didn't want to put him in a bad spot. West said, 'I'm standing in this spot and I love this guy right here."

President Trump, Kanye West, Jim Brown and Kid Rock spoke to reporters in the Oval Office Followwd by Lunch Together




President Donald Trump and rapper Kanye West spoke to reporters in the Oval Office Thursday afternoon before their lunch meeting.

“Trump is on his hero’s journey right now,” West said. “He might not have thought he’d have a crazy mother-fucker like Kanye West run up and support, but best believe — we are going to make America great.”

West wore Trump’s campaign MAGA hat, urging Americans to rally around the president. He said that the hat was his “superman cape” allowing him to do whatever he wanted.

“We have to release the love throughout the entire country and give opportunities,” he said.

Kanye West spoke for about 20 minutes speaking his support for Trump and took questions from reporters.

“I don’t answer questions that are simple soundbites. You are tasting a fine wine, it has multiple notes to it,” he said. “You better play 4D chess with me like Minority Report.”

Trump praised Kanye’s remarks, which had to be edited by TV censors before it was aired on cable news.

“He can speak for me any time he wants. He’s a smart cookie,” he said. “He gets it.”

“It was from the soul,” West replied, “I just channeled it.”



Comments by Chrissie.........


Jim Brown is revered by older blacks and Kanye has a huge following with young blacks.

I like this........."Kanye says when he puts on his MAGA hat he feels Luke Superman!"


I really admire the courage he has shown while being subjected to withering criticism and insults from the "tolerant" left. He’ll be subjected to even worse after this meeting.

Trump, Kushner to meet with Kanye West at White House

The Hill

Rapper Kanye West will meet with President Trump and senior adviser Jared Kushner on Thursday, the White House confirmed early Tuesday.

“Kanye West is coming to the White House to have lunch with President Trump and he will also meet with Jared Kushner. Topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence, and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, according to a pool report.

West, who has become one of Trump’s most vocal celebrity supporters, will meet Kushner before having lunch with Trump at the White House, two people familiar with the plans told The New York Times on Monday.

The musician reportedly wants to discuss furthering job opportunities for former convicts with the administration officials.

West also hopes to discuss with Trump how to increase the number of manufacturing jobs near Chicago, where he grew up, the Times reported.

Kushner, who is also Trump's son-in-law, has met with West’s wife, reality star Kim Kardashian West, to discuss his focus on overhauling the criminal justice system.

Kardashian West met with Trump in the Oval Office in May to urge him to pardon Alice Marie Johnson, a grandmother serving a life sentence in prison for a nonviolent drug offense.

Trump and West also met following the 2016 presidential election.




Hosted on Fotki


West in April called Trump his "brother" and said they are both “dragon energy.”

The rapper left social media again on Sunday after he was criticized for delivering a pro-Trump speech following his performance a week earlier on “Saturday Night Live.”

West during his speech claimed "SNL" cast members had "bullied" him and urged him not to wear a "Make America Great Again" hat onstage.

"SNL" cast member Pete Davidson mocked his speech on the latest episode of "SNL," calling it “one of the worst, most awkward things I’ve ever seen here.”

"He wore it all week, like, nobody told him not to wear it," Davidson said. "Like, I wish I bullied you. I wish I would've suggested that it might upset some people, like your wife, or every black person ever."

Gorgeous First Lady Melania visiting Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt

Hosted on Fotki




While visiting Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt, Mrs. Trump wove in her child-focused “Be Best” campaign.


Mrs. Trump met with Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the Egyptian president, and Entissar Mohameed Amer, the Egyptian first lady at the presidential palace in Cairo. The two first ladies, along with Mr. Sisi, met for about an hour in the ornate palace with tight security.


Mrs. Trump visited Nairobi National Park, home to black rhinos, lions, leopards, cheetahs, buffaloes, giraffes and zebras, among other animals. Flanked by Secret Service agents, the first lady watched zebras graze, with the skyline of Kenya’s capital on the horizon. Despite the leisurely safari, Mrs. Trump drew criticism from the LEFT AND THE LEFT MEDIA ASSHOLES....... for wearing a white pith helmet, which is closely associated with colonialism in Africa.


Workers at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi spend years bonding with orphaned elephants. Mrs. Trump helped feed the young elephants milk from giant bottles.


Cheerful children greeted Mrs. Trump at an orphanage in Nairobi that cares for 130 children and promotes women and children’s health. The first lady handed out “Be Best” blankets and teddy bears, and read stories to children.


After arriving in Malawi’s capital, Lilongwe, to much fanfare, Mrs. Trump visited the Chipala Primary School. Roughly 8,000 students attend the school, which employs just 75 teachers, according to the White House.

Mrs. Trump landed at Kotoka International Airport in Accra, Ghana, on Tuesday morning, greeted by a troop of cultural dancers, children waving American and Ghanaian flags, and Rebecca Akufo-Addo, the first lady of Ghana. Lillian Naa Adai Sai, 8, presented Mrs. Trump with a bouquet of flowers.


Mrs. Trump’s motorcade drew onlookers from the busy streets of Accra as it made its way to Greater Accra Regional Hospital. The first lady handed out teddy bears to children and visited the maternity ward, accompanied by Ms. Akufo-Addo.


Two hours before Mrs. Trump arrived at the Emintsimadze Palace in Cape Coast on Wednesday, several of her aides delivered traditional libations, meant to help the chiefs of the Fante people, who primarily live in Ghana, communicate with their ancestors.


Alongside crashing waves, Mrs. Trump toured Cape Coast Castle, a somber memorial site that formerly housed Ghanaian slaves before they were transported to the Americas by the British.

“This is a very special place,” Mrs. Trump said when asked about her visit. “I will never forget the incredible experience and the stories that I heard from the gentleman.”

“What happened so many years ago, it’s really a tragedy,” she added.

First Lady Melania Trump’s heartfelt visit to Africa

This week, First Lady Melania Trump is on her first solo international trip, visiting the African nations of Ghana, Malawi, Kenya, and Egypt. Wrapping up her first stops in Accra and Cape Coast, Ghana, the First Lady took her “Be Best” message to the children of Malawi today.

Lilongwe, Malawi, is known as the “warm heart of Africa.” This afternoon, Mrs. Trump was greeted at the airport by the First Lady of Malawi, Gertrude Mutharika—and her granddaughter, who handed Mrs. Trump a beautiful arrangement of flowers.

During a ceremony at the Chipala Primary School in Lilongwe today, Mrs. Trump spoke on the importance of educating and empowering youth. The children’s willingness to learn was moving: More than 8,000 students attend Chipala Primary School. The facility has 22 classrooms, with an average class size of about 106 students per class.

“The growth and success of a country starts with educating our children,” the First Lady said. “The positivity and passion to learn was so evident in each classroom, and I appreciate the time everyone took to show me around the school.”

The First Lady continued her journey this evening, arriving in Kenya for a two-day visit.

"We Honor Work" - President Trump Speaks to the National Electrical Contractors Association




"We Honor Work" - President Trump Speaks to the National Electrical Contractors Association

Remarks by President Trump at National Electrical Contractors Association Convention


THE PRESIDENT: Thank you, folks. (Applause.) I’ve paid you so much money over the years. David, I’ve given them so much money. That’s all right. And you did a good job. Please.

MR. LONG: As a memento for us of him being here, we have created him a hardhat with the Presidential Seal, the American flag, NECA, and our convention logo. You could use this in Washington from time to time. (Laughter and applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: I will use it. I will. That’s beautiful. Thank you, man. Thank you. (Applause.) Thank you. I don’t want to put it on because I’m afraid that I’ll mess up my hair. That would be terrible. (Laughter.) Did I have a good hair day? Or — I don’t know. Yes? Come on. (Laughter.) Got to do it. (Applause.) Thank you, man. Is it still okay? I think so.

Thank you, everybody. Please sit down. And it is true — I told David, “David, I paid these guys so much money over the years, built so many beautiful buildings.” And you know what? The job you do is incredible.

I’d go to some of those switchboards and I’d go to some of those connectors, and I said, “These are smart people. Putting that together, these are smart…” — and you are, you’re smart people and you’re talented people. Few people could do what you do, that I can tell you. So, thank you. (Applause.) Thank you. That’s true.

And thank you, David. I’m thrilled to be in the great city of Philadelphia. I went to college here at the Wharton School of Finance — U of Penn — with thousands of our nation’s most skilled and talented workers — the electrical contractors who make our country run. So true.

I also know from firsthand experience, America’s electrical contractors are the best in the world. Nobody even close. And now — (applause) — that’s true. Nobody close. And now, you have a friend and an ally in the White House. And you do. You have a friend. (Applause.)

I want to thank John Grau, Dan Walter, Mark Mazur — well, that’s a very interesting name, Greg Rick. Where — who’s Greg Rick? Where’s Greg? (Laughter.) Stand up. I love that name. “Greg Rick.” They have a lot of problem back-and-forth, I’ll bet, huh? Over your life, huh? (Laughter.) They call you “Rick”; they call you “Greg.” (Laughter.) And he’s a good man. And the incredible leadership team at the National Electrical Contractors Association. You have great leadership.

With your help, we will protect this noble trade for many generations to come. And you’re protecting it yourself with your talent.

I also want to thank a very special group of people who always get the job done and get it done right — the proud members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. Thank you very much. (Applause.) Thank you.

And speaking of energy, we are honored to be joined by Energy Secretary Rick Perry — where’s Rick? He’s around here. (Applause.) Stand up, Rick. Great job he’s doing. Doing a great job.

And Alex Acosta, as you know, Secretary of Labor. Alex. (Applause.) Thank you, Alex. He just developed two incredible healthcare plans that really work and they’re really popular. Thank you very much, Alex.

As well as two tremendous leaders from Pennsylvania, Congressmen G.T. Thompson and the great Lou Barletta — going to be your next senator I hope. (Applause.) Thank you. Thank you, G.T. Thank you, G.T. And thank you, Lou. What a job you’re doing.

I’ll tell you what, if he’s your next senator, you’re going to have no more problems. He is a doer. So, I’m very proud of you, man. Great job. And I hear you’re doing well, and I’m proud.

Also here with us are members of the Mississippi congressional delegation. In fact, I’m going there with the delegation. I’ll be there tonight.

People say, “Where do you get this energy?” You know where I get it? I love doing it, actually. If you love doing it, it’s easy. Right, David? (Applause.) If you don’t like doing it, not so good.

Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith — where’s Cindy? Cindy. (Applause.) Thank you, Cindy. I hear you’re doing really well. A man who always does well, Senator Roger Wicker. (Applause.) Roger. Been a great friend of mine from the beginning. Thank you, Roger. And Representative Gregg Harper. (Applause.) Thanks, Gregg. Thank you, Gregg.

This is really an incredible time for our nation. We are respected again. We are respected again, like we haven’t been respected in many, many decades. (Applause.)

We have the best economy in our history. Stock market today just hit another record high. That’s the hundred — I think its 103 times since I’m President that we’ve hit a new high. And hopefully, next year at this time we’ll hit many more. (Applause.) But that’s not a bad number, right? I think we’re up to 103. And if I’m off just by a little bit -– like if it’s 102 — it’ll be headlines. “Trump exaggerated.” (Laughter.) That’s why I always say “I think it’s around…”

With a Republican Congress, we’ve added more than 4 million new jobs since Election Day, and lifted 4 million Americans off of food stamps. Those are tremendous numbers. (Applause.)

Jobless claims are at a 50-year low. And the stock market, as I just said, is at an all-time high today. African American, Hispanic American, and Asian American unemployment rates have all recently achieved their lowest levels ever recorded. (Applause.) That’s pretty good.

That’s a very hard soundbite to beat, right, if you’re the opponent of Trump? When you say “highest and best numbers we’ve ever had.” And we have created over 50,000 new jobs in electrical contracting. That’s pretty good. That’s pretty good. Nobody thought that was going to be happening. (Applause.) And it’s going way up. It’s going up very fast.

America’s –- and just remember this –- America’s economic revival would not be possible without the men and women in this room. Would not be possible. I’ve built so much. I’ve done so much business with you. I’ve watched the things you’ve done and it’s incredible.

We are truly grateful to our electricians, our wiremen, linemen, engineers, technicians, journeymen, contractors, and apprentices –- oh, I love that word. That was a great — I love the word “apprentice.” (Applause.) I love that word.

You know, I did that show 14 seasons, and then I left. They wanted to sign me for three more seasons. I said, “No, I’m going to run for President.” (Laughter.) It’s true.

So they replaced me with a big, big movie star. And it didn’t last too well. It was gone like –- quickly. But I love that name. “The Apprentice.”

Who keep the engine of American prosperity running full speed ahead. We’re also fixing decades of disastrous trade deals that have plundered our factories and stolen our wealth and our jobs. What’s happened here over the last 20, 25 years, and more is horrible.

But we’re changing it all. We’ve added 400,000 new manufacturing jobs since the election. And that number, very shortly, will be up, David, to 640,000. Big things are happening currently. (Applause.)

And if you remember, the past administration said those are jobs that you’re not going to be adding. “You’re going to need a magic wand.” Do you remember that? Magic wand. There was no magic wand; it’s good policy and other things.

We are in the midst of a manufacturing renaissance –- something which nobody thought you’d hear –- which means more jobs for our great electrical contractors.

Yesterday, we made history by announcing an incredible, brand new trade deal to replace the horrible NAFTA deal that drained our country of jobs and companies. As I have said many times — (applause) — NAFTA was one of the worst trade deals ever made in any country at any time.

And now we have a great trade deal. And we have deal that is also good for Mexico and good for Canada. And we have a good partnership with the three. And it worked out. It all worked out. (Applause.)

As you probably noticed, and read, and saw, there were a little tough negotiations. But you know what? It all worked out. And we’re now on the right track. And we did a great deal with South Korea. It’s all working out.

Now, as you probably have heard, we’re looking at China and other countries, and we’re straightening out some of these horrible deals that stole our wealth, stole our jobs, stole so much from us. Actually, in many ways, stole our dignity as a country. (Applause.)

Our landmark new trade agreement is called the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA. Like YMCA; or United States Marine Corps, with an “A” at the end. (Laughter.) I liked the way it sounded. I didn’t want to use the name “NAFTA,” because NAFTA has been so bad for us. I would watch 20 years ago, 10 years ago, 15 years ago — you look at New England where the factories were devastated. People forget. People forget. You still have empty buildings all over the country from NAFTA, so I didn’t want to use the name “NAFTA.”

USMCA is the most advanced, modern, and balanced trade agreement ever negotiated. It is also the largest trade deal the United States has ever made. And we think it’s the largest trade deal ever made in the world — $1.2 trillion in commerce a year.

The USMCA will protect American workers, substantially increase exports of American agriculture. Our farmers are so happy. I spoke with Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa this morning. She was so happy. And the farmers and agricultural people are thrilled. They didn’t know if we’d ever be able to make a deal or certainly a fair deal for them. They’re thrilled. And this deal will revitalize, also, the American auto industry.

One thing I wanted was, I don’t want any incentives to get companies to leave our country; fire everybody; move to Mexico, or Canada, or someplace, and build cars and send them in — no tax, no nothing; and, in the meantime, we end up with nothing except unemployed people. Not going to happen anymore. That’s what I wanted in this deal. It was so important. (Applause.) It was so important.

Do you remember those days? You all remember those days? When everybody was leaving the country? Going to make a product, send it in, and we end up with unemployed. That’s about all we got out of it — no nothing. So those days are over, folks.

Last week, I also stood beside President Moon and announced a new trade deal with South Korea that will increase exports of American-made cars very, very substantially; increase exports of agriculture; and also medicine, which is very big and very important business.

We’re preparing to start negotiations, right now, with Japan. And we have taken the toughest-ever actions in our history against China’s very abusive trading policies and trade practices.

China has been taking out of our country $500 billion a year and it was time to stop. Nobody ever did it. It’s crazy. (Applause.) Nobody ever did it — $500 billion a year. And we’re going to have a great relationship with China, but we have to be fair to ourselves, also.

After years of rebuilding foreign countries, we are finally rebuilding our country, and we are doing it with — (applause) — American aluminum, American steel, and with our great electrical contractors. It’s true. But we’re rebuilding our country. (Applause.) Yep.

We’re committed to revitalizing our infrastructure and strengthening our electrical grid. It’s so important.

Last week, I proudly signed legislation to completely rebuild the United States military. We’re purchasing the finest equipment on Earth, and it will be all made right here in the USA. We make the best equipment in the world. (Applause.) We make the greatest military equipment in the world — greatest missiles, greatest rockets, greatest planes, best rifles, best ships. We make the best military equipment, by far, in the world.

And it’s made also — much less importantly, in this case, David — but it’s also made with American jobs, which is very good. Normally jobs is number one. When it comes to military, we’ll put jobs at number two. We need the equipment, right? Probably seldom so much as these times.

And interestingly — I hope we never have to use it — but you know what assures that, or at least almost assures that? Having the most powerful military, by far, that we’ve ever had means we’l probably never have to use it. It’s very simple. (Applause.) We learned that — we learned that a long time ago, right? We learned that a long time ago.

Another critical element of national security is energy security. And, Rick Perry, you’re doing a great job. I’m proud of you. Very proud of you. He was the governor of Texas for 12 years. He was not only a great governor; he was a great cheerleader. And he ran for President — he was nasty against me, wasn’t he, though? Wow. (Laughter.) He was tough. And you’re doing great, Rick. We appreciate it very much. (Applause.)

We are now the single largest producer of oil and gas anywhere in the world. This was very recent. (Applause.) Took a lot of regulations off. We have plenty left. But we took regulations off which allowed us to do things that we would never have been able to do. Think of it: We’re the single-largest producer of energy in the world. Did you ever think you were going to hear that? This all happened very quickly.

We’ve ended the war on clean, beautiful, Pennsylvenle [Pennsylvania] — hey — your clean, beautiful, Pennsylvania coal. Right? It’s beautiful. It’s clean. What they can do with coal today is incredible. And we have more of it than anybody in the world and we’re producing energy-rich Pennsylvania shale.

To get you more contracts and more jobs, we’ve slashed a record number of regulations. And we’ve approved immediately — like first day, first week — the Keystone XL Pipeline and the Dakota Access Pipelines. That’s 48,000 jobs in one day. Boom, boom. Had to sign something.

Those companies have never had it so good. That was dead. Both of them were dead. And I came along. I think it could’ve been my first day, Rick. Right? But close. And we signed it — 48,000 jobs immediately. And better than riding it on top, on the railroads. Better environmentally. You know, they talk about the environment.

And right now, our air is record clean. And our water is crystal clear. And that’s what we want. But we don’t want stopping jobs. We don’t want to do what some people wanted us to do — mostly, our foreign competitors.

And I’ve ordered federal agencies to dramatically speed up the federal permitting process so that you can get approvals much more quickly. We have the time down to one half of one half already. It used to take 20 years to get a highway approved; we’re close to two years, and I’d like to get it down to one.

And that doesn’t mean they’re going to approve it. But if they’re not going to approve it, somebody doesn’t have to give up their entire life going through an approval process only to have a 3 to 2 vote — “we’re not going to approve it.” (Applause.) So, we’re going to be close to one year, from twenty.

My administration has also taken historic action to make healthcare more affordable. Through Association Health Plans — that’s Alex — we are allowing businesses to band together and to buy much more affordable insurance for their employees, including across state lines — meaning you have tremendous competition. You have to see these insurance companies. They’re going crazy — sort of like the fake news media. They’re going crazy. (Laughter and applause.)

I used the term last night “loco” — in order to get the business — meaning you’re getting good deals. They’re getting great deals.

We opened up short-term, limited-duration plans so that individuals can buy the plan they want and the plan that they need at tremendously reduced costs. We’ve done great with that.

And we’ve eliminated much of Obamacare. And most importantly, we’ve eliminated the individual mandate. It’s gone. That was the thing in Obamacare that was just no good, where you paid a fortune for the privilege of not having to pay a fortune to have bad health care. Right? You know, guys are paying thousands of dollars so they don’t have to buy healthcare. (Applause.) We’ve gotten rid of it. Gone. That was a big one.

Thanks to our actions, I am pleased to announce that, for the first time since Obamacare was passed, premiums are not going to go up next year. We have done everything in the book. They are actually going to go down somewhat. And if we weren’t here, if you had another administration — they were going up another 122 percent, 153 percent, 70 percent, 80 percent.

And you look at what we’ve done, just through management of healthcare, and it’s not good stuff but we’ve keep the premiums down to the lowest number that they’ve been. So we’re very happy with that. A lot of people are very happy with that. (Applause.) Thank you.

And we’re strongly protecting your Medicare. We oppose efforts from Democrats to raid Medicare to fund socialism, robbing seniors of their benefits. Medicare belongs to the seniors who have earned it and paid into it for their entire lives. (Applause.) They want to take it away — the Democrats. And we will always protect Americans with preexisting conditions. That’s a major part of what I’m all about. (Applause.)

At the heart of our economic revival are the massive tax cuts passed by Republicans in Congress. We didn’t get one Democrat vote. And those tax cuts are one of the reasons the economy is doing so well. But you’re talking about a lot of money in the pockets of everybody in this room. A typical family of four earning $75,000, as an example, will see an income tax cut of more than $2,000, slashing their tax bill in half, and, in many cases, much more than that. (Applause.) Big difference.

And small businesses can now deduct 20 percent of their business income — one of the most significant small business tax cuts in the history of our country. Very big cut. Big incentive. (Applause.)

Capital investments are soaring because you can now immediately deduct every penny spent on new equipment. You can do one-year expensing. Nobody thought that was ever going to happen. In fact, I should leave and go back into business maybe. (Applause.) If you would have told me that when I was a private businessman, maybe I wouldn’t have run for President.

One-year — think of it — one-year expensing. Normally, you write it off over 30, 40 years. One-year expensing. That’s an incentive to go out and do what you have to do. And I always said that was going to be one of the most important things in the package. That was a small clause that a lot of people didn’t talk about. And I said, “That’s going to be one of the most important.”

And bringing back trillions of dollars from overseas — money that was going to be spent in other parts of the world. Apple is bringing back $230 billion. They’re building plants all over the United States, and a great — from what I hear, a great campus, they call it. So many things are happening. But billions and billions of dollars is being brought back into our country — money that could never have been brought back under the old system.

And from now on, small business owners will be spared from the deeply unfair estate tax, also known as the “death tax.” (Applause.)

So if you have a small business or a farm or something — and you love your kids — now, if you don’t love your kids, it doesn’t help you. (Laughter.) Because if your kids don’t treat you good, don’t leave it to them. Give it to somebody else. (Laughter.) So it doesn’t help.

But if you love your kids, which probably 82 percent of you do — according to most (inaudible) — (laughter) — you can now leave your small business or your beautiful little farm or whatever it is that you’re so proud of — you leave it to your kids, and they don’t have to go out to the bank and borrow to pay the tax and end up losing it in a foreclosure. It’s such a big thing. A lot of people don’t talk about it, but we were able to get it.

So the estate tax — and the death tax, which is sort of the same thing — but gone — essentially gone for small business. So that’s great. (Applause.) A very big thing.

One of the millions of small businesses that is thriving thanks to tax cuts is Wilson Construction Company in Canby, Oregon. Stacy Wilson runs the business with her family, and she joins us today. Stacy, please come up and tell us about the incredible growth that you’ve seen since the institution of our tax cuts. Where is Stacy? Go ahead, Stacy. Come on up. (Applause.) From Oregon.

Thank you, Stacy.

MS. WILSON: Thank you. Wow.

THE PRESIDENT: (Inaudible.)

MS. WILSON: Thank you very much. Wow.

THE PRESIDENT: I’ll put that down.

MS. WILSON: Thank you. Wow. Truly an honor. Thank you so much, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: It’s my honor.

MS. WILSON: As Mr. President said, my name is Stacy Wilson. We own an electrical contracting company out of Canby, Oregon. We are a midsize company that is family-owned. My grandfather started the company 65 years ago in Oregon and Washington. And my father, Don Wilson, has really made it what it is today — a nationwide company that specializes in transmission, distribution, and substation projects nationwide.

We employ about 500 employees. And thanks to Mr. Trump and the tax reforms and the general confidence in the economy, I guess, we have really been able to invest more in our employees and grow our company in the last year. We’re investing more in employee wages and benefits and bonuses. We’re spending millions on equipment and assets. And, in general, we’re just seeing a huge increase in work that is coming out because utilities are spending more to update this aging infrastructure.

So thank you very much.

THE PRESIDENT: Well, thank you so much.

MS. WILSON: It’s made a huge impact. And — (applause) — so we are looking to grow about 20 to 30 percent more in employees just in the next few months. We have a lot of large projects that are starting. And this will make, I think, a big difference in — really, these incentives that are good for businesses are really important for our employees but also the communities we work in. And we’ve really been thankful and have seen this since President Trump has been in office.

So, thank you so much for this opportunity and this great acknowledgement. I never thought I would be up here, so thank you. (Laughs.) (Applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you, Stacy.

I see that, you know, Stacy comes up — no notes, no nothing, nothing to read — and gives a speech better than the politicians, folks. (Laughter.) The politicians, they walk up with papers; everything is scripted. They read it. They stutter. Look at her, she’s, like, great. (Applause.)

Okay, now she’s famous too, so she’ll probably become a governor of Oregon. (Applause.) She’ll become a governor, or a senator. Great job. Very impressive. That’s very impressive.

Another success story in this world, in this great land of ours, is Arcadia Electric in Ridgewood, New York. That’s right where I grew up — right near where I grew up. Company president Steve Gianotti is with us. And, Steve, could you come up and tell us about that great success that you’re experiencing, especially recently? Thank you, Steve. (Applause.)

MR. GIANOTTI: Good afternoon, everyone.

First, I’d like to thank President Trump for his perseverance in helping us with his fiscal policy, which have enabled my company, Arcadia Electric, to bid on more work, and take on more jobs that we’re able to do now because we have more coming that’s available to us, more than ever before.

And as a result of that, we have been able to keep our 120 people employed. But next year, we anticipate hiring 25 percent more hardworking union workers, middle-class workforce that will — (applause) — bring our company to approximately 150 employees, which we’re very proud of. They work hard. They’re the safest, hardest, union workers. And their professional abilities is what makes us successful.

And for that I have to, again, thank the President of the United States for his perseverance and for enabling us to get this work and to change the regulatory policies that he’s been doing — that he spoke of earlier. This is all helpful to us. So, President Trump, thank you very much. (Applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: Thanks. Thank you, Steve. Great job.

We want to give every citizen the opportunity to achieve their American Dream. That’s why we’re committed to expanding apprenticeships, and on-the-job-training, and vocational education — you know, a word that you don’t hear that much. I’m bringing it back. Because when I was growing up — (applause) — I had so many vocational schools, and you don’t hear that anymore. (Applause.)

You hear “junior college.” You hear all sorts of names, but the vocational is what I understood and that’s what I like. And I had people that went to school with me, and, in some cases, they weren’t great students. But they could take apart an engine blindfolded, put it back together 15 different ways. They were so much more talented than the “A” student. We would have been “D” students. And that’s what they want to do, and that’s what they love, and it’s called “vocational.” So we’re bringing that word back a lot.

But you have tremendously talented people that are, frankly, making a tremendous living — making a lot of money. And we love those people. They’re very special, so we’re bringing back the word “vocational.” And we’re bringing it back strong. (Applause.)

My administration is making a historic investment in workforce development. We established the National Council on the American Worker, and I recently signed a bill to provide more than $1 billion annually for vocational education. (Applause.)

Employers all across the country are signing our Pledge to America’s Workers, expanding job opportunities for more than 4.2 million Americans. And that number is soon going to reach 10 million Americans, including 60,000 Americans who will have access to apprenticeships and on-the-job training thanks to the National Electrical Contractors Association. Thank you, David. (Applause.) Thank you, David.

And one of the countless Americans who has experienced the tremendous benefits of an apprenticeship is Liam Nickelaides — a proud Air Force veteran, a National Guardsman, and a member of Philadelphia’s own Local 98. Liam, please come up. Tell us your great story, please. (Applause.)

MR. NICKELAIDES: Yes. How is everybody doing today? (Laughter.)

So, as an apprentice, it’s a pretty easy schedule. Mondays, you wake up at 4:20 in the morning. Tuesdays, you wake up at the same time, you give a speech in front of a couple thousand people and the President of the United States. (Laughter and applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: That’s great.

MR. NICKELAIDES: For me, my apprenticeship experience has been a pretty good one. When I went to get a job with Local 98, as a member of the Air Force National Guard, I told them that there’d be a good chance that I’d be deploying pretty often. And I told them that during my interview. And I really thank God for the opportunity that they still gave me to get a job and to train me in their union.

So, I thought that maybe it would be just words that I’d get from Local 98. That, yeah, they support the military, but I didn’t really know if I could believe it. But I was able to deploy for three months — short little deployment. And upon my return, I was able to get pushed right back into the education program with the Local 98. And I’m back working — (applause) — upon arrival, back in the United States. And tomorrow, I’m waking up at 4:20, and going back to work again. (Laughter and applause.)

So, thank you. (Applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: Is he a natural? Huh? (Laughter and applause.) Thank you, Liam. Good luck with everything. Wow. That’s so great. That’s so great. They don’t even seem nervous, you know? (Laughter.) They come up here — no notes, no nothing. I think it’s great. Thank you very much.

And I want to thank you to everyone here today for your investment in America’s future, and for your devotion to the American worker. So important. Hardworking citizens like you who have always been the backbone of our nation will always be the most important factor in our nation. You make it grow, you make it work.

You power our homes, you light up our skylines, and you make the glory of America shine for all the world to see. You take pride in your work, and America takes pride in all of you in this big, beautiful room.

You pour out your hearts to earn a living, you create loving homes for your family, and you teach your children to cherish our values and to cherish our great American flag. (Applause.) Always.

In a house not far from where we are today, Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, and forever changed the course of human history. Today, we reaffirm our nation’s founding truth: In America, the people govern.

The men and women who go to work each day are not only powering our economy, they are powering our nation and they are powering our freedom. (Applause.)

America will always be a nation of great builders. Because in America, we honor work. We honor grit. We honor craftsmanship. We honor the men and women who turn dreams into reality with their own two, beautiful hands. In America, we honor all of you. (Applause.)

With cable, copper, wire, and steel, you are the ones lighting America’s path forward. So important. So important. You may not even understand how important it is, what you do. You are the ones rebuilding this land that we love. You are the ones who are making America greater than ever before.

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

The Joint Statement signed by President Trump and Kim Jong Un








The Joint Statement signed by President Trump and Kim Jong Un

Joint Statement of President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea at Singapore Summit

Statement from First Lady Melania Trump on Newly Released Information from the Department of Health and Human Services



Statement from First Lady Melania Trump on Newly Released Information from the Department of Health and Human Services


Today, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released information on how States can cover the cost of treating babies suffering from neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). NAS occurs when babies are exposed to opioids or other addictive drugs during pregnancy, and then experience painful withdrawal symptoms during their first few weeks of life.

It is our responsibility to do all we can to ensure our most vulnerable are protected. This past year, I visited Lily’s Place in West Virginia, where addiction recovery treatment is available to the entire family. “Be Best” is dedicated to bringing attention to successful programs like Lily’s Place because our nation needs more programs like these to help struggling Americans. I am proud to support HHS in its continued efforts to combat the opioid epidemic. I encourage States, hospital groups, and nonprofits to click here to read more on the benefits and waivers available to help these babies and their parents.

Press Conference by President Trump After G7 Summit




The United States will not allow other countries to impose massive Tariffs and Trade Barriers on its farmers, workers and companies. While sending their product into our country tax free. We have put up with Trade Abuse for many decades — and that is long enough.


Press Conference by President Trump After G7 Summit

Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu
Charlevoix, Canada


THE PRESIDENT: Well, thank you very much. I appreciate it. We’re getting ready to make a big trip. We’re just leaving, but we wanted to have a little bit of a conference just to announce what’s happened, how we’ve done. And I think it’s been very, very successful. We’ve concluded a really tremendously successful G7 and would like to provide you with an update.

And you know the gentlemen up are the legendary Larry Kudlow and the legendary John Bolton. And we had a good meeting, both on defense and environment and, frankly, on tariffs, which are what we’re here for.

First, I’d like to thank Prime Minister Trudeau for hosting this summit. It has worked out to be so wonderful. The people of Canada are wonderful, and it’s a great country, and a very beautiful country, I might add.

We tackled a variety of issues and opportunities facing our nations. At the top of the list was the issue of trade — a very important subject — because the United States has been taken advantage of for decades and decades, and we can’t do that anymore.

We had extremely productive discussions on the need to have fair and reciprocal — meaning, the same. People can’t charge us 270 percent and we charge them nothing. That doesn’t work anymore.

I made a lot of statements having to do with clarity. We want and expect other nations to provide fair market access to American exports, and that we will take whatever steps are necessary to protect American industry and workers from unfair foreign trading practices, of which, really, there are many. But we’re getting them straightened out, slowly but surely.

We also discussed the issue of uncontrolled migration and the threat that it poses to both national security and other groups and countries, and our citizens and quality of life. We’re committed to addressing the migration challenge by helping migrants to remain and prosper in their own home countries. A wide array of national security threats were addressed, including the threat of Iran. The G7 nations remain committed to controlling Iran’s nuclear ambitions — with or without them, those ambitions are going to be controlled — along with efforts to combat terrorism and extremism and those who spread this deadly ideology.

The nations of the G7 are bound together by shared values and beliefs. That came out loud and clear. Each of our nations is totally unique with our people and our own sovereign obligations. But we can coordinate together and achieve a common good — a good for all — good for all of our people, all of our nations.

We’re linked in the great effort to create a more just, peaceful, and prosperous world. And from the standpoint of trade and jobs and being fair to companies, we are really, I think, committed. I think they are starting to be committed to a much more fair trade situation for the United States, because it has been treated very, very unfairly.

And I don’t blame other leaders for that. I blame our past leaders. There was no reason that this should have happened. Last year, they lost eight-hundred — we as a nation, over the years — but the latest number is $817 billion on trade. That’s ridiculous and it’s unacceptable. And everybody was told that.

So I don’t blame them; I blame our leaders. In fact, I congratulate the leaders of other countries for so crazily being able to make these trade deals that were so good for their country and so bad for the United States. But those days are over.

In just a few minutes, I’ll be leaving for Singapore. I’ll be on a mission of peace, and we will carry in, really — in my heart, we’re going to be carrying the hearts of millions of people, people from all over the world. We have to get denuclearization. We have to get something going. We really think that North Korea will be a tremendous place in a very short period of time. And we appreciate everything that’s going on. We appreciate the working together with North Korea. They’re really working very well with us.

So I say — so far, so good. We’re going to have to see what happens. And we’re going to know very soon.

So I’ll be leaving — as soon as we’re finished with this conference, I’ll be leaving. And I very much look forward to it. I think it’s very important for North Korea and South Korea and Japan, and the world, and the United States. It’s a great thing. And we’ll see what happens.

Okay. Any questions? Yes, yes.

Q Mr. President, you are about to embark on what may be the most important meeting you’ve ever had in your life. What’s in your gut? Steel nerves or butterflies? Can you describe how you feel?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, there’s always everything. It’s really — you know, this has probably rarely been done. It’s unknown territory, in the truest sense. But I really feel confident. I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people, and he has that opportunity. And he won’t have that opportunity again. It’s never going to be there again.

So I really believe that he’s going to do something very positive for his people, for himself, his family. He’s got an opportunity, the likes of which I think almost — if you look into history — very few people have ever had. He can take that nation, with those great people, and truly make it great. So it’s a one-time — it’s a one-time shot. And I think it’s going to work out very well.

That’s why I feel positive, because it makes so much sense. And we will watch over, and we’ll protect, and we’ll do a lot of things. I can say that South Korea, Japan, China, many countries want to see it happen. And they’ll help. They’ll all help. So there’s a great — there’s really — this is a great time. This has not happened in all of the years that they’ve been separated by a very artificial boundary. This is a great opportunity for peace, and lasting peace, and prosperity.

Yes, ma’am.

Q Mr. President, did you raise bringing Russia back into the G7 during your meetings? And when have you last spoken to Vladimir Putin? Do you expect to meet him in Vienna this summer?

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah, I have not spoken to Vladimir Putin in quite a while. It has been discussed. We didn’t do votes or anything, but it has been discussed. Some people like the idea of bringing Russia back in. This used to be the G8, not the G7. And something happened a while ago, where Russia is no longer in. I think it would be an asset to have Russia back in. I think it would be good for the world. I think it would be good for Russia. I think it would be good for the United States. I think it would be good for all of the countries of the current G7.

I think the G8 would be better. I think having Russia back in would be a positive thing. We’re looking for peace in the world. We’re not looking to play games.

Okay. Question? Yes.

Q Mr. President, you said that this was a positive meeting, but from the outside, it seemed quite contentious. Did you get any indication from your interlocutors that they were going to make any concessions to you? And I believe that you raised the idea of a tariff-free G7. Is that —

THE PRESIDENT: I did. Oh, I did. That’s the way it should be. No tariffs, no barriers. That’s the way it should be.

Q How did it go down?

THE PRESIDENT: And no subsidies. I even said no tariffs. In other words, let’s say Canada — where we have tremendous tariffs — the United States pays tremendous tariffs on dairy. As an example, 270 percent. Nobody knows that. We pay nothing. We don’t want to pay anything. Why should we pay?

We have to — ultimately, that’s what you want. You want a tariff-free, you want no barriers, and you want no subsidies, because you have some cases where countries are subsidizing industries, and that’s not fair. So you go tariff-free, you go barrier-free, you go subsidy-free. That’s the way you learned at the Wharton School of Finance. I mean, that would be the ultimate thing. Now, whether or not that works — but I did suggest it, and people were — I guess, they got to go back to the drawing and check it out, right?

But we can’t have — an example — where we’re paying — the United States is paying 270 percent. Just can’t have it. And when they send things into us, you don’t have that. I will say, it was not contentious. What was strong was the language that this cannot go on. But the relationships are very good, whether it be President Macron or with Justin. We had — Justin did a really good job. I think the relationships were outstanding.

But because of the fact that the United States leaders of the past didn’t do a good job on trade — and again, I’m not blaming countries; I’m blaming our people that represented our past. It’s got to change. It’s going to change. I mean, it’s not a question of “I hope it changes.” It’s going to change, a hundred percent. And tariffs are going to come way down, because people cannot continue to do that. We’re like the piggybank that everybody is robbing. And that ends.

In fact, Larry Kudlow is a great expert on this, and he’s a total free trader. But even Larry has seen the ravages of what they’ve done with their tariffs. Would you like to say something, Larry, very quickly? It might be interesting.

MR. KUDLOW: One interesting point, in terms of the G7 group meeting — I don’t know if they were surprised with President Trump’s free-trade proclamation, but they certainly listened to it and we had lengthy discussions about that. As the President said, reduce these barriers. In fact, go to zero. Zero tariffs. Zero non-tariff barriers. Zero subsidies.

And along the way, we’re going to have to clean up the international trading system about which there was virtual consensus of agreement on that. And that will be a target. And these are the best ways to promote economic growth, and we’ll all be better at it, and we’ll all be stronger at it.

So, I myself was particularly gratified to hear my President talk about free trade. Thank you, sir.

THE PRESIDENT:
Thank you.

And it’s very unfair to our farmers. Our farmers are, essentially — whether it’s through a barrier, non-monetary barrier, or whether it’s through very high tariffs that make it impossible — and this is all over the world. This isn’t just G7. I mean, we have India, where some of the tariffs are 100 percent. A hundred percent. And we charge nothing. We can’t do that. And so we are talking to many countries. We’re talking to all countries. And it’s going to stop. Or we’ll stop trading with them. And that’s a very profitable answer, if we have to do it.

Yes, sir.

Q Thank you, Mr. President. Another question on trade. You just said that you think that the tariffs are actually going to come down, but it does appear that these various countries are moving forward with retaliatory tariffs on the U.S. Did you get any concessions or any agreements with any of these countries not to move forward with those tariffs? And are you willing to not move forward with —

THE PRESIDENT: Well, if they retaliate, they’re making a mistake. Because, you see, we have a tremendous trade imbalance. So when we try and bring our piece up a little bit so that it’s not so bad, and then they go up — right — the difference is they do so much more business with us than we do with them that we can’t lose that. You understand. We can’t lose it.

And as an example, with one country we have $375 billion in trade deficits. We can’t lose. You could make the case that they lost years ago. But when you’re down $375 billion, you can’t lose. And we have to bring them up.

So there’s very bad spirit. When we have a big trade imbalance and we want to bring it up to balance — just balance — and they keep raising it so that you never catch, that’s not a good thing to do. And we have very, very strong measures that take care of that, because we do so much. The numbers are so astronomically against them in terms of anything, as per your question. We win that war a thousand times out of a thousand.

Yes. Yes, sir.

Q Are you close to a deal on NAFTA? Your Press Secretary said (inaudible).

THE PRESIDENT: So two things can happen on NAFTA. We’ll either leave it the way it is, as a threesome deal with Canada and with the United States and Mexico, and change it very substantially — we’re talking about very big changes. Or we’re going to make a deal directly with Canada and directly with Mexico. Both of those things could happen.

If a deal isn’t made, that would be a very bad thing for Canada and it would be a very bad thing for Mexico. For the United States, frankly, it would be a good thing. But I’m not looking to do that. I’m not looking to play that game.

So we’re either going to have NAFTA in a better negotiated form, or we’re going to have two deals.

Q And does it have to have a sunset clause in it?

THE PRESIDENT: It will have a sunset. You have the two sunsets. I mean, you have an ISDS provision and a sunset provision. They’ve been very heavily negotiated. You have two sunsets, two concepts of sunset. We’re pretty close on the sunset provision. Okay?

Q Like five years or —

THE PRESIDENT: Well, we have one that’s five years; you know it very well. You’ve studied this very well. Congratulations. That’s right. You have one group that likes to have five years, and then a renegotiation at the end of five years. And you have another group that wants longer because of the investments. But we’re pretty close.

Yes, sir.

Q Mr. President, David Herszenhorn with Politico Europe. Just to come back to Russia for a second. Something that happened that got them kicked out of the G8 was the invasion and annexation of Crimea. Do you think that Crimea should be recognized as Russian (inaudible)?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, you know, you have to ask President Obama, because he was the one that let Crimea get away. That was during his administration. And he was the one that let Russia go and spend a lot of money on Crimea, because they’ve spent a lot of money on rebuilding it. I guess they have their submarine port there and such. But Crimea was let go during the Obama administration. And, you know, Obama can say all he wants, but he allowed Russia to take Crimea. I may have had a much different attitude. So you’d really have to ask that question to President Obama — you know, why did he do that; why did he do that. But with that being said, it’s been done a long time.

Q But you would allow Russia back into the G8 with Crimea still (inaudible)?

THE PRESIDENT: I would rather see Russia in the G8 as opposed to the G7. I would say that the G8 is a more meaningful group than the G7, absolutely.

Yes. Yes, ma’am.

Q How persuasive did you find the Europeans and Canadians when they made the case to you that you shouldn’t use national security as a justification for tariffs?

THE PRESIDENT: They virtually didn’t even make that case. I mean, my case is the fact that it is national security; it’s our balance sheet; it’s our strength. It’s absolutely national security. And, you know, if you look at our — just take a look at our balance sheet. We’re going to have a very strong balance sheet very soon because of what we’re doing.

We have the strongest economy that we’ve ever had in the United States — in the history of the United States. We have the best unemployment numbers. Black unemployment, the lowest in history. Hispanic unemployment, the lowest in history. I don’t mean the lowest in the last 10 years or 20 years. The lowest in the history of this country. Black unemployment is doing the best it’s ever done. Hispanic doing the best. Women are now up to 21 years. Soon it’s going to be the best ever in its history — in the country’s history.

We have to have deals that are fair, and we have to have deals that are economic. Otherwise, that does, in fact, affect our military. Okay?

Q How do you make that case for autos?

THE PRESIDENT: Oh, it’s very easy. It’s economic. It’s the balance sheet. To have a great military, you need a great balance sheet.

Yes, sir. Go ahead.

Q As you were heading into these G7 talks, there was a sense that America’s closest allies were frustrated with you and angry with you, and that you were angry with them and that you were leaving here early to go meet for more friendlier talks with Kim Jong Un in Singapore. And I’m wondering if you —

THE PRESIDENT: It’s well put, I think.

Q — if you view it the same way. And do you view the U.S. alliance system shifting under your presidency, away —

THE PRESIDENT: Who are you with, out of curiosity?

Q CNN.

THE PRESIDENT: I figured. Fake News CNN. The worst. But I could tell by the question. I had no idea you were CNN. After the question, I was just curious as to who you were with. You were CNN.

I would say that the level of relationship is a 10. We have a great relationship. Angela and Emmanuel and Justin. I would say the relationship is a 10. And I don’t blame them. I blame — as I said, I blame our past leaders for allowing this to happen. There was no reason this should happen. There’s no reason that we should have big trade deficits with virtually every country in the world. I’m going long beyond the G7. There’s no reason for this. It’s the fault of the people that preceded me. And I’m not just saying President Obama. I’m going back a long way. You can go back 50 years, frankly. It just got worse and worse and worse.

You know, we used to be a nation that was unbelievably cash-flow-oriented. Had no debt of any consequence, and that built the highway system. We built the interstate system out of — virtually out of cash flow. And it was a lot different.

No, we have a very good relationship, and I don’t blame these people, but I will blame them if they don’t act smart and do what they have to do — because they have no choice. I’ll be honest with you, they have no choice.

They’re either going to make the trades fair, because our farmers have been hurt. You look at our farmers. For 15 years, the graph is going just like this — down. Our farmers have been hurt, our workers have been hurt. Our companies have moved out and moved to Mexico and other countries, including Canada.

Now, we are going to fix that situation. And if it’s not fixed, we’re not going to deal with these countries. But the relationship that I’ve had is great. So you can tell that to your fake friends at CNN.

The relationship that I’ve had with the people, the leaders of these countries, has been — I would really, rate it on a scale of 0 to 10, I would rate it a 10. That doesn’t mean I agree with what they’re doing. And they know very well that I don’t. So we’re negotiating very hard, tariffs and barriers.

As an example, the European Union is brutal to the United States. They don’t — and they understand that. They know it. When I’m telling them, they’re smiling at me. You know, it’s like the gig is up. It’s like the gig is up. They’re not trying to — there’s nothing they can say. They can’t believe they got away with it. Canada can’t believe it got away with it. Mexico — we have $100 billion trade deficit with Mexico and that doesn’t include all the drugs that are pouring in because we have no wall. But we are. We started building the wall, as you know. $1.6 billion — and we’re going to keep that going.

But a lot of these countries actually smile at me when I’m talking. And the smile is — we couldn’t believe we got away with it. That’s the smile. So it’s going to change. It’s going to change. They have no choice. If it’s not going to change, we’re not going to trade with them.

Okay, how about a couple of more? Go ahead in the back.

Q Thanks, Mr. President. Eliana Johnson with Politico.

THE PRESIDENT: Yes. Hi.

Q Going into these talks with Kim Jong Un, do you have a clear objective of what you want to get out of them?

THE PRESIDENT: I have a clear objective. But I have to say, Eliana, that it’s going to be something that will always be spur of the moment. You don’t know. You know, this has not been done before at this level. This is a leader who really is an unknown personality. People don’t know much about him. I think that he’s going to surprise, on the upside, very much on the upside. We’ll see. But never been done. Never been tested. Many people — world leaders — I’m talking about world leaders that have been right next to him have never met him.

So we’re going in with a very positive spirit. I think very well prepared. I think — and, by the way, we have worked very well with their people. They have many people right now in Shanghai; our people have been — in Singapore. Our people have been working very, very well with the representatives of North Korea.

So we’re going in with a very positive attitude, and I think we’re going to come out fine. But I’ve said it many times: Who knows? Who knows? May not. May not work out. It’s a good chance it won’t work out. There’s probably an even better chance that it will take a period of time. It will be a process.

Q Is there a particular outcome that you would look for from this initial talk to judge whether you think things are going well?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I think the minimum would be relationship. You’d start at least a dialogue. Because, you know, as a deal person, I’ve done very well with deals. What you want to do is start that. Now, I’d like to accomplish more than that. But at a minimum, I do believe, at least we’ll have met each other. We will have seen each other. Hopefully we will have liked each other and we’ll start that process.

So I would say that would be the minimal. And the maximum, I think you know the answer to that. But I think that will take a little bit of time.

Okay? Yeah.

Q How long do you think that it will take you to figure out whether he’s serious about (inaudible)?

THE PRESIDENT: That’s a good question. How long will it take? I think within the first minute I’ll know.

Q How?

THE PRESIDENT: Just my touch, my feel. That’s what I do. How long will it take to figure out whether or not they’re serious? I said maybe in the first minute. You know, the way — they say that you know if you’re going to like somebody in the first five seconds. You ever hear that one? Well, I think that very quickly I’ll know whether or not something good is going to happen.

I also think I’ll know whether or not it will happen fast. It may not. But I think I’ll know pretty quickly whether or not, in my opinion, something positive will happen. And if I think it won’t happen, I’m not going to waste my time. I don’t want to waste his time.

Yes, ma’am.

Q Are you concerned about all that just like giving Kim the meeting, that he’s getting a win as a (inaudible)?

THE PRESIDENT: No, no, no, no. That’s only — only the fake news says that. You know, this — look, we just three hostages back. We paid nothing. They came back. They’re happily in ensconced in their homes with their families. They’re the happiest people in the world right now.

We have gotten — you know, we haven’t done anything. Everyone said — you know, the haters, they say, “Oh, you’re giving him a meeting.” Give me a break, okay? There’s nothing. I think if I didn’t do this, it would be — and it’s never been done before, you know. It’s never been done before. And obviously, what has been done before hasn’t worked.

And this is something — I can’t stress this strong enough. You know, I talked about tariffs that previous people — and I’m not looking to criticize people that were preceding me — but on tariffs, it should have never happened.

Well, the same thing on North Korea. We shouldn’t be in this position. We shouldn’t be in this position on tariffs. We were hundreds of billions of dollars down to other countries that, frankly, were never even negotiated with. They never even got spoken to.

I asked a top person in China, how did it get so bad? He looked at me, he said, “Nobody ever talked to us.” They were missing in action, our leaders.

Well, a very similar thing, if you think about it, took place with North Korea. This should not be done now. This should have been done 5 years ago, and 10 years ago, and 25 years ago. It shouldn’t be done now.

Q Have you spoken to Kim at all in the last —

THE PRESIDENT: I can’t comment on that.

Okay, one more question.

Q A follow-up on North Korea. Will you raise of the gulags with Kim Jong Un and —

THE PRESIDENT: We’re going to raise every issue.

Q — and the (inaudible) and kidnappings?

THE PRESIDENT: Every issue is going to be raised.

Q Mr. President, we’re sitting here, and kind of you’ve attacked the U.S. press back home, but you’ve also done it on foreign soil. I guess I want — I’d like to ask you why you do that. Do you think —

THE PRESIDENT: Because the U.S. press is very dishonest, much of it. Not all of it. Oh, I have some folks in your profession that are with the U.S., in the U.S. — citizens, proud citizens; they’re reporters. These are some of the most outstanding people I know. But there are many people in the press that are unbelievably dishonest. They don’t cover stories the way they’re supposed to be. They don’t even report them, in many cases, if they’re positive.

So there’s tremendous — you know, I came up with the term, “fake news.” It’s a lot of fake news. But at the same time, I have great respect for many people in the press.

Thank you all very much. I appreciate it. Thank you. Thank you.

President Donald J. Trump and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan




President Donald J. Trump and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan


PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much. Today I’m greatly honored to welcome my good friend, Prime Minister Abe of Japan, to the White House. Over the past 16 months, the Prime Minister and I have worked closely together to address common challenges, of which there are many; seize opportunities; and advance the interests of our nations. Today, we have had another deeply productive and very valuable discussion.

We have developed not only a strong working relationship over the last year and a half, specifically 503 days, but a great personal friendship. I was honored by the tremendous hospitality the Prime Minister showed me when the American delegation went to Japan last year. It was really something very special. And we had the Prime Minister and Mrs. Abe as our guest at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach.

The steadfast alliance between Japan and the United States is an enduring force of peace and stability in the Pacific region and around the world. From the beginning of my administration, the Prime Minister and I have been working to expand our cooperation in a range of areas, including defense and commerce, which is what we discussed today.

As I prepare to meet next week with Kim Jong Un — and I want to bring up the fact that the Prime Minister Abe and, also, President Moon of South Korea were extremely helpful, cooperative, and they’d like to see something happen. It would be great for North Korea, South Korea. It would be great for Japan, the United States, and the world. Our partnership has been invaluable in reaching this important moment, and we will continue to be in very close communication in the weeks ahead, including the issue of Japanese abductees, which I know is of great personal importance to Prime Minister Abe.

I hope the upcoming meeting in Singapore represents the beginning of a bright new future for North Korea and indeed a bright new future for the world. The denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula would usher in a new era of prosperity, security, and peace for all Koreans — for North and South — and for people everywhere.

Prime Minister Abe and I are also working to improve the trading relationship between the United States and Japan — something we have to do. The United States seeks a bilateral deal with Japan that is based on the principle of fairness and reciprocity. We’re working hard to reduce our trade imbalance, which is very substantial, remove barriers to U.S. exports, and to achieve a fair and mutually beneficial economic partnership. And we’re on our way.

The Prime Minister was telling us just moments ago that they’re buying billions and billions of dollars of additional products of all kinds — military jets, airliners from Boeing, lots of farm products. We’re going to be doing a lot more business with Japan, which is what everybody wants to see.

There’s never been a better time to invest in the United States. Thanks to our massive tax cuts, historic deregulation,a strong trade policy, which has just really begun — because I will tell you over the years it has been an extraordinarily weak trade policy — the opening of American energy, and a return to the rule of law, our economy is absolutely booming. Best it’s ever been. Unemployment is at the lowest level in nearly half a century. And for African American and Hispanic American workers, unemployment has reached its lowest level ever recorded.

We welcome and encourage Japanese investors to open new plants and factories in the United States. And that will happen. The Prime Minister has told me that will happen. We want new auto plants going into Michigan and Pennsylvania and Ohio — and many of our states that have them and some that don’t. And they’ll be doing that.

Japan has also remained a critical partner in our efforts to promote a free and open Pacific region where sovereign nations uphold the rule of law, respect the rights of their neighbors, and honor the interests of their people. These core principles allow diverse nations to thrive and prosper altogether in one beautiful, peaceful atmosphere. We’re all happy about it. It’s what’s happening now.

Prime Minister Abe, it is a true privilege to work with you. You’ve become my great friend. I want to thank you for being here at the White House for our meetings today. So productive. I’m also very proud to say that the bonds between our nations are stronger than ever before. And I know that, together, we can unlock incredible new opportunities, achieve remarkable new prosperity, and ensure the safety and security of our citizens for a very, very long time to come. And that’s what we intend to do.

Thank you very much. Thank you. Mr. Prime Minister, thank you.

PRIME MINISTER ABE: (As interpreted.) Mr. President, I am so grateful to you for this meeting that you offered with great hospitality at such busy time as G7 Summit and U.S.-North Korea summit meetings are upcoming. I also would like to express my appreciation to the people of the United States for always warmly welcoming us as your ally.

In five days, U.S.-North Korea summit is to take place. First of all, I would like to pay my deep respect to the outstanding leadership of President Trump as he made this decision that no past Presidents were ever able to accomplish.

In the last 18 months, we really spent many hours to discuss this issue. We shall never repeat the past mistakes. While this thought is completely shared between us, we are able to witness an historic talk which will take place shortly.

Today, with President Trump, our discussion was focused on the issue of North Korea. What should we do as we approach the upcoming U.S.-North Korea summit, as well as for the peace and stability of Northeast Asia after the summit? On this topic, we took a good amount of time and carried out in-depth and candid exchange of views. I’m not able to talk about the details of what we discussed, but one thing I can say is that Japan and the United States are always together. I strongly hope that this historic summit in Singapore be a resounding success.

There is a beautiful port town, Niigata, facing the Sea of Japan. A mere 13-year-old girl living there was abducted by North Korea. Forty-five years have passed since then, during which time family members single-mindedly prayed for her return and kept on waiting. The parents became old. Remaining time is slipping away. It is the long-held desire of the Japanese people to have her and all of the abductees come home so that the parents, while they are healthy, can embrace the girl and other abductees again in their arms.

Of course, I wish to directly face North Korea and talk with them so that abduction problem be resolved quickly. To this end, I am determined to take all possible means.

On behalf of the citizens of Japan, I would like to thank President Trump and the people of the United States for their understanding and support toward the resolution of the abduction issue.

Japan will continue to ask for complete implementation of the successive United Nations Security Council resolutions. There is no change at all for Japan’s policy to seek comprehensive solution of the abduction, nuclear and missile programs, and to realize real peace in the Northeast Asia. This is what Japan strongly hopes for.

Now, a major step forward is about to be taken. Donald, President Trump, you are about to make a new history. Not only Japan, but the whole international community is strongly looking forward for the United States-North Korea summit to open doors toward peace and stability of the Northeast Asia.

North Korea abounds with rich natural resources. North Korea has a diligent workforce. If North Korea is willing to take steps toward the right direction, North Korea can see a bright future ahead for itself. Japan, based on the Japan-North Korea Pyongyang Declaration, is prepared to settle the unfortunate past, to normalize our diplomatic relations, and to provide economic cooperation. Japan wishes to play the role as much as possible. Donald, I value highly your strong commitment to world peace and prosperity.

In closing, I wish to add that Japan stands ready to make every effort to assist you for the success of U.S.-North Korea summit. Thank you.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Appreciate it. So we’ll take a few questions, if we can start.

John Roberts, go ahead.

Q Mr. President, on the subject — and I have a question for the Prime Minister as well. On the subject of North Korea, how far are you willing to go, in terms of economic security, political guarantees with Kim? Are you willing to move down the road toward normalizing relationships, normalizing relations with North Korea, as the Prime Minister suggested he was willing to at some point?

You teased us, as well, out on the South Lawn here last week. You said that you might sign a peace deal to end the war. Where are you with that? And what was in the letter?

PRESIDENT TRUMP:
Well, the letter was just a greeting. It was really very nice. Perhaps I can get approval to put it out. It was really a very warm letter, a very nice letter. I appreciated it very much. And nothing other than: We look forward to seeing you, and we look forward to the summit, and hopefully some wonderful things will work out.

So it was really very warm, very nice. We appreciated it.

I think, John, that we are going to — we’re going to have a great success. I don’t think it will be in one meeting. I think it will take longer than that. This has been going on for many, many decades.

This is something that should have been solved by other Presidents, as I’ve said often before, long before this point. They waited until the last second. And they shouldn’t have waited. This should have been solved by many others. I’m not just saying President Obama; I’m saying other Presidents. A long time ago, this could have been solved in a lot easier manner and a lot less dangerous manner. But it wasn’t. So I’ll solve it, and we’ll get it done.

As far as the Prime Minister is concerned, we will agree and we have agreed that we’re going to be helping — if the deal is done, we’re going to be helping North Korea. We’re going to be working with China. We’re going to be working with South Korea.

President Xi of China has been terrific. The border has been certainly more closed than ever before. I’d like them to close it a little bit more, but it’s been more closed than ever before. China has never worked with us this way. And, you know, I give him a lot of credit because, as you know, we’re in a dispute as to the imbalance of trade. It’s a massive imbalance in China’s favor. It’s been that way for many decades, and it should have also been handled by previous Presidents. But it wasn’t, so we’ll handle that too.

But I give President Xi tremendous credit, and I give President Moon tremendous credit. He really would like to see something happen. They’ve been living with the threat of war from their beginning, and it doesn’t make sense. And I really believe that Kim Jong Un wants to do something. I think he wants to see something incredible happen for the people of North Korea.

So we have a lot of great opportunities right now. Shouldn’t have waited to this point, but we have a lot of great opportunity.

John, please.

Q Again, Mr. President, would you be willing to go so far as to normalize relations with North Korea? And what about the idea of signing some sort of an agreement on the 12th to end the war?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, it could be. We could sign an agreement. As you know, that would be a first step. It’s what happens after the agreement that really is the big point.

But, yes, we could absolutely sign an agreement. We’re looking at it. We’re talking about it with them. We’re talking about it with a lot of other people. But that could happen. But that’s really the beginning. Sounds a little bit strange, but that’s probably the easy part; the hard part remains after that.

Q And normalizing relations?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Normalizing relations is something that I would expect to do, I would hope to do, when everything is complete. We would certainly hope to do that.

I know that Prime Minister Abe and President Moon have told me, very strongly, that they are going to go and they will help them economically, tremendously. Japan has a tremendous stake and so do they. We, on the other hand, are very far away. We’re very, very far away.

But Japan will be helping. I believe China will be helping economically, also. And I think China wants to see something very good happen, very positive happen. And certainly, South Korea has already stated their intentions. They will be very helpful.

So there are lot of good factors lined up for North Korea. A lot of tremendous factors that give it tremendous potential. It has tremendous potential because the people are great. And we would certainly like to see normalization, yes.

Q And, Prime Minister Abe, if I could address you as well. We know how important an issue the abductees is for you. President Trump said at Mar-a-Lago during your last meeting that it’s a very important issue for him as well. We know about the medium-range ballistic missiles. Did you get an assurance from President Trump that he would address both of those in his first meeting with Kim?

PRIME MINISTER ABE: (As interpreted.) Today, we had long hours of discussion with President Trump. Good amount of discussion. On the issue of abduction, I was able to have a detailed discussion, and I think President Trump fully understands the situation. He supports the position of Japan.

Last year, President Trump visited Japan. On that occasion, he met with the families of abductees. I told you about the 13-year-old girl abducted. The mother of this girl met with President Trump, and very seriously he intently listened to the voices and views of the family members. So President Trump, amongst the world leaders, I think he is one of the leaders who understands the issue the most — greatest.

So at the upcoming summit, the importance of abduction would be explained to Mr. Kim Jong Un.

What about the medium-range missiles? As I said earlier on in my statement, the Security Council’s resolution must be implemented. All weapons of mass destruction and all ballistic missiles — these are the words used in the resolution of the Security Council. In other words, the Security Council resolution must be completely implemented. On this point, between Japan and U.S. and international community share the same view. I am convinced about it. Thank you.

Mr. Katsumi of TBS, please. Next question, please.

Q (As interpreted.) Thank you. My name is Yusa from TBS Television. I have question for both President Trump, as well as Prime Minister Abe. You have not used the language of applying the largest pressure on North Korea, but are you continuing with a deal with the sanction? And the denuclearization, you will be asking for that? And what is the deadline for the denuclearization?

And my question to Prime Minister is how to apply pressure to North Korea and the tone of the language. Are you in full agreement, complete agreement with the United States?

PRIME MINISTER ABE: (As interpreted.) President Trump has stated that we are implementing sanctions, and those sanctions are very strong sanctions. He also stated that until North Korea takes the action, the sanctions will not be lifted. And Japan is in full agreement and Japan’s position is perfectly in alignment with the United States.

And in our summit meeting this time, we had in-depth discussion with President Trump as to how we should respond to the North Korea and ask for the future policy on North Korea.

Inclusive of the U.S.-North Korean summit meeting, we have detailed coordination aligning our positions. As I have already mentioned, Japan and the United States are always together. Japan and United States will be in full alignment to seek success for the historic U.S.-North Korea summit meeting in Singapore.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Yes. Thank you very much. Maximum pressure is absolutely in effect. We don’t use the term anymore because we’re going into a friendly negotiation. Perhaps after that negotiation I will be using it again. You’ll know how well we do in the negotiation. If you hear me saying we’re going to use “maximum pressure,” you’ll know the negotiation did not do well, frankly. There’s no reason to say it.

We, in the meantime, haven’t removed any sanctions. We have a list of over 300 massive, in some cases, sanctions to put on North Korea. And I’ve decided to hold that until we can make a deal, because I really believe there’s a potential to make a deal. And I just don’t think it’s nice going in under those circumstances.

But, yes, the campaign hasn’t changed. China has continued to hold the border. We, again, would like them to do more in that sense. But they’ve been really good, and the President has been very good. But maximum sanction is there. We are leaving all of the existing sanctions on. We have many, many sanctions to go, but I don’t want to use them unless it’s necessary. And I don’t think it will be necessary, but we will soon know. Okay? Thank you.

Saagar Enjeti. Where’s Saagar? Daily Caller.

Q Thank you, Mr. President. I have a question for the Prime Minister as well. Mr. President, under what — you’ve said repeatedly that you are willing to walk away from the negotiations if they don’t do well. Under what exact conditions would you be walking away from that summit? And if the summit does go well, will you be inviting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to the United States?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, the answer is yes to the second part of your question. But certainly if it goes well. And I think it would be well received. I think he would look at it very favorably. So I think that could happen.

All I can say is I am totally prepared to walk away. I did it once before. You have to be able to walk away. If you’re not going to be able to walk away — we didn’t walk away from the horrible Iran deal that was signed. And if you look at what’s happened since I signed that deal, Iran — and in all fairness, I say it with great respect for the people of Iran — but Iran is acting a lot differently. They’re no longer looking so much to the Mediterranean. They’re no longer looking so much to what’s going on in Syria, what’s going on in Yemen and lots of other places. They’re a much different country over the last three months.

And again, I say that with hope that maybe something can happen. But when you mention sanctions, we’re putting sanctions on Iran, the likes of which nobody has ever seen before, including, frankly, North Korea. That would have been the next phase, if we did it or find it necessary to do.

But nuclear to me is always first. And we’re going to be fine, with respect to Iran. But we also, Saagar, got something out of it that’s very important. A lot of the people that write about this, some of whom I have respect for, but they haven’t picked it up: Iran is not the same country that it was a few months ago. They’re a much, much different group of leaders. And I hope at some point they’ll come to us and we’ll sit down, and we’ll make a deal that’s good for them, and good for us, and good for everybody. And it will be great for Iran. I expect it to be — I want it to be great for Iran.

But if they would have walked — our side — from some of the horrible provisions that you know as well as I do, and probably everybody sitting here knows, we could have had a great deal. Nothing wrong with a deal, but there’s something wrong with that deal. We had a great opportunity to make a phenomenal deal.

So I am totally prepared to walk. It could happen. Maybe it won’t be necessary. I hope it won’t be necessary to walk because I really believe that Kim Jong Un wants to do something that is going to be great for his people and also great for his family and great for himself.

Okay? Thank you very much.

Q Sir, if you do invite him to the White House — or to the United States, would it be here at the White House or at Mar-a-Lago?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Maybe we’ll start with the White House. What do you think? (Laughter.)

Q Mr. Prime Minister, you are the only major world leader not to have a sit-down or a planned sit-down with Kim Jong Un. You hinted in your address today that you would be willing to do so on the matter of abductees. Do you have any plans currently to do so? And would it be focused solely on abductees, or would you be willing to have a separate denuclearization discussion with Kim Jong Un directly without the United States? Thank you.

PRIME MINISTER ABE: (As interpreted.) Of course, on the issue of abduction, we have to resolve this problem. With Abe administration, this is of the highest priority. And if anything contributes to that resolution, if the talk leads to the solution of the problem between U.S. and North Korea or between Japan and North Korea, the meetings we wish to have on the issue of abduction in the final analysis Chairman Kim Jong Un and me, between Japan and North Korea, problem has to be solved. Of course, for Japan, missile issue and nuclear issue very important.

Nuclear issue, missile issue, regarding these issues, at the U.S. and North Korea summit meeting — first and foremost, I’m hopeful for the progress. And then, on the issue of abduction, we will liaise — we will collaborate with the U.S. and international community. And Japan, ourselves, must talk directly with North Korea in the final analysis. I am determined about that.

Mr. Hayashi?

Q (As interpreted.) Thank you, Prime Minister Abe. I have question to Prime Minister as well as President Trump. Starting with Prime Minister, you have already mentioned to a certain degree on the abduction issue. In order to hold Japan-North Korea summit, the premise is that you need to obtain results for the abduction issue. What kind of concrete pathway are you envisaging to hold the summit meeting?

In your meeting with President Trump today, have you asked President Trump to raise the question of abduction at the U.S.-North Korea summit meeting in Singapore?

Next is my question to President Trump. You have — Kim Jong Un has maintained this position that the abduction issue is something that already had been resolved. So what kind of explanation has been given to the United States on the abduction issue in the North Korea to U.S. via consultations? And how should we approach North Korea in order to seek solution for the abduction? And what did you convey to Prime Minister Abe today in this regard?

PRESIDENT TRUMP:
You know, I can speak first because I will tell you, on the Prime Minister’s behalf, that he very much talked about abduction. It was preeminent in our conversations. He talked about it long and hard and passionately. And I will follow his wishes, and we will be discussion that with North Korea, absolutely. Absolutely.

Prime Minister, go ahead.

PRIME MINISTER ABE:
(As interpreted.) Now, at our Japan-U.S. meeting we had in Mar-a-Lago in February, today, once again, as President Trump has mentioned already, I have explained on the abduction issue once again and I have conveyed to him the earnest wish of the families of the abductees. And President Trump once again has stated that the abduction issue will be raised at the upcoming U.S.-North Korea summit.

Now, at the U.S.-North Korea summit meeting, as to the concrete matters to be discussed, I would like to refrain from mentioning this at this juncture. But in any case, Japan’s (inaudible) position were explained at length, and President Trump has given his understanding, and he has promised that the issue will be brought up at the summit meeting in Singapore. And I am delighted of this.

President Trump and the international community — I would like to closely work with President Trump as well as the international community to seek solution to the issue. In solving the abduction issue, Japan itself needs to have direct consultation with North Korea. I have not changed my resolve in doing so.

And under this decision and resolve, what will be conducive to solve the abduction issue — of course, I will have to think about the summit meeting for Japan-North Korea summit meeting. If we are to have the summit meeting, the nuclear, the missile, and what is more important, the abduction issue — the solution to all these issues must be resolved. And I hope that we will be able to realize a summit meeting which would lead to solution of the problems.

But first and foremost, we need to seek advancement for the abduction, nuclear, and missile programs. Japan and U.S. should closely cooperate with each other so that we will be able to see great success for the historic U.S.-North Korea summit meeting. And Japan would like to give our all-out efforts in support.

Thank you.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I’d like to just close by paying my highest respect and regards and love, frankly — I’ve gotten to know them very well — to the Warmbier family, the incredible family of Otto Warmbier, who was a brilliant, beautiful, terrific young man. And he has not died in vain, I can tell you that. He has not died in vain. So to the Warmbier family, our love and our respect.

Also, I’d like to say that we were tremendously successful in getting our three hostages back. And I’m very thankful to the cooperation that we received from North Korea. And the three United States citizens are now very happily ensconced in their homes with their families. They’re very happy. They didn’t think this was going to happen. And frankly, it would never have happened, but it has.

So I just want to wish them well also. They had a tough journey, but I really respect the fact that we were able to work with the North Korean folks and get them out. They’re very, very well ingrained already. They’re back into — they were telling me they’re now going to movies and they’re going out to dinner, and they’re back. They’re back in our country, and it’s a terrific thing.

I believe we’re going to have a terrific success or a modified success. But in one form or another, if it all goes — and things can happen between now and then — but I know many of you are going. And I look forward to seeing you there. I look forward to traveling with you. It’s a long way. But I really believe that we have the potential to do something incredible for the world. And it’s my honor to be involved.

Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you.

Kim Kardashian West Visits President Trump at White House





Kim Kardashian West Visits President Trump at White House about the case of Alice Marie Johnson.

Kim Kardashian talks about her meeting with President Trump, says "The President seems to have a passion" for prison reform..

Kim Kardashian West met with President Trump at the White House Wednesday about sentencing and prison reform, Mr. Trump confirmed in a tweet Wednesday night. The White House had offered few details about her visit.

"Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing," Mr. Trump tweeted.

Kim was advocating for a pardon for Alice Marie Johnson, a great-grandmother serving a life sentence for a nonviolent drug offense. Johnson has spent more than two decades in prison. Vanity Fair first reported the Kardashian sister would be visiting Washington and meeting with White House officials.

A member of Johnson's legal team told CBS News White House reporter Jacqueline Alemany the meeting between the president and Kardashian was very "positive," but the president did not make a decision during the meeting about whether or not he will move forward with a pardon.

President Donald Trump Defunds Planned Parenthood, Will Cut Almost $60 Million in Taxpayer Funding ~ GOOD!





President Donald Trump Defunds Planned Parenthood, Will Cut Almost $60 Million in Taxpayer Funding


Life News


The Trump administration is announcing new regulations today to partially defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses of tens of millions of tax dollars. This is the second time Trump has taken steps to revoke taxpayer funding for the nation’s biggest abortion business — after yanking taxpayer from from International Planned Parenthood during his first week in office.

The United States spends about $260 million in Title X funds annually for family planning for low-income individuals, and Planned Parenthood is a huge recipient of those funds, as much as $50-$60 million annually.

But under the proposed “Protect Life Rule,” Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses would not receive any of those tax dollars unless they completely separate their abortion business from their taxpayer-funded services, The Washington Examiner reports. That would mean housing their family planning services elsewhere — potentially in separate buildings and coordinated by separate staff and organizations from its abortion enterprise.

“This proposal does not necessarily defund Planned Parenthood, as long as they’re willing to disentangle taxpayer funds from abortion as a method of family planning, which is required by the Title X law,” a Trump administration official said. “Any grantees that perform, support, or refer for abortion have a choice – disentangle themselves from abortion or fund their activities with privately raised funds.”

Of course, Planned Parenthood is unwilling to do so. Abortion is its primary focus, and it already is threatening a lawsuit to stop the defunding. However, the proposal is modeled after similar Reagan administration rules that the U.S. Supreme Court upheld in Rust v. Sullivan in 1991.

Planned Parenthood Vice President Dawn Laguens quickly slammed the proposal with an absurd claim that her abortion chain is the only place women can go for basic health care.

“This is an attempt to take away women’s basic rights, period,” Laguens said. “Under this rule, people will not get the healthcare they need. They won’t get birth control, cancer screenings, STD testing, and treatment, or even general women’s health exams.”

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser refuted this by pointing to the growing number of community and rural health centers that far outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities.

“We thank President Trump for taking action to disentangle taxpayers from the abortion business,” Dannenfelser said. “Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business, is responsible for more than 300,000 abortions a year and has been receiving $50-60 million in Title X taxpayer funds annually. The Protect Life Rule doesn’t cut a single dime from family planning. It instead directs tax dollars to Title X centers that do not promote or perform abortions …”

Here’s more from the Washington Examiner:

The proposal, which is being filed with the Office of Management and Budget, is based off a policy from when Ronald Reagan was president. An administration official denied that the proposal would contain a “gag rule” preventing doctors from counseling women about abortion, as several news reports have stated, though acknowledged that the rule would no longer contain a mandate that clinics must counsel and refer for abortion. …

The Department of Health and Human Services said that the proposal was being filed in order to “ensure compliance” with laws that prohibit federal funds from going toward abortions. The amount the federal government spends on family planning services, including birth control, STD testing, and cancer screenings, will not be cut. The program covers 4 million low-income people.

Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins praised the proposed rules.

“You can really see how insidiously entangled the abortion industry is in our government run healthcare programs when abortion allies in Congress get apoplectic because family planning programs don’t require a sales pitch to end the lives of family members,” Hawkins said. “The Trump Administration has every right to require that Title X programs focus on healthcare, not abortion …”

The proposal comes amid strong pleas from grassroots Americans and members of Congress to defund the abortion giant Planned Parenthood. In April, 154 U.S. House members sent a letter to HHS Secretary Alex Azar asking for a rule to prohibit tax dollars from being use to promote abortions.

Title X funds are supposed to be used to help low-income women and men receive birth control, cancer screenings and other health care services. While the tax money cannot be used to pay for abortions, it indirectly funds Planned Parenthood’s vast abortion business.

The Trump administration has cut several other streams of funding to Planned Parenthood as well. Soon after Trump took office, he signed the Mexico City Policy to prevent the funding of groups that promote or perform abortions overseas.

Senate Intel Committee endorses CIA Dir. nominee Gina Haspel to get full Senate vote





Senate Intel Committee endorses CIA Dir. nominee Gina Haspel to get full Senate vote


The Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday recommended Gina Haspel be confirmed as CIA director, and now the full Senate will later vote on her nomination.

President Trump nominated Haspel to the post, and her confirmation process has been under intense scrutiny.


The CIA’s post-9/11 enhanced interrogation program that Haspel was involved with, as well as torture methods and waterboarding, have been contentious topics generally split along party lines. But some Democrats announced their support of Haspel on Tuesday, which indicated she would garner the Senate’s approval and be named CIA director.

The committee on Wednesday voted 10 to 5 to recommend Haspel to the full Senate. Of the 100 U.S. Senators, 51 are Republicans and 49 are Democrats; while two Republicans said they would not vote for Haspel, five Democrats have indicated they would support her nomination.

Haspel spent 33 years in the Central Intelligence Agnency, and if confirmed, she would become the agency’s first female leader.

Haspel, 61, is the acting CIA director, and she has yet to be confirmed by Congress after facing backlash from politicians over her intelligence career.

She ran a black-site prison in Thailand where a high-level terrorist was detained and tortured in 2002.

Mohammed was captured in March 2003 and was kept at CIA prisons in Afghanistan and Poland. He was tortured by the CIA, including being waterboarded.

Haspel has pledged not to implement an interrogation program of that kind again.

“Having served in that tumultuous time, I can offer you my personal commitment, clearly and without reservation, that under my leadership CIA will not restart such a detention and interrogation program,” she said.

US Embassy in Jerusalem thank you President Trump




Vice President Mike Pence
It was in Jerusalem that King David consecrated the capital of the Kingdom of Israel. Since its rebirth, the modern State of Israel has called Jerusalem the seat of its government. President Trump & the American people acknowledge this historic truth w the opening of the US Embassy.






President Donald J. Trump Keeps His Promise To Open U.S. Embassy In Jerusalem, Israel


FULFILLING A PROMISE: President Trump kept his promise by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and opening the U.S. Embassy there.

On December 6, 2017, President Trump kept his promise, announcing that the United States would begin recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and officially open our Embassy there.

Congress urged the President to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel with the bipartisan 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act – a call unanimously reaffirmed by the Senate in 2017.

After decades of past Presidents committing to move the Embassy to Jerusalem on the campaign trail, only to renege on those promises while in office, President Trump has fulfilled his promise to support one of America’s strongest allies.

More than two decades of waivers delaying the Embassy move brought us no closer to a lasting peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.

President Trump has made clear that old challenges demand new approaches, and that he will keep his word to the American people.

On May 14, 2018, the United States officially opened our Embassy in Jerusalem, Israel, 70 years to the day that President Truman recognized Israel as an independent country, making the United States the first nation to do so.

President Trump has recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and advanced peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Announcing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is simply a recognition of reality.

Israel is a sovereign nation and, like every other sovereign nation, has the right to choose its own capital. Yet for 70 years we neglected to extend this basic courtesy to Israel that we extend to other countries.

Jerusalem is the seat of the modern Israeli government. It is the home of the Israeli Parliament and the Israeli Supreme Court. It is the location of the official residence of the Prime Minister and President, as well as the headquarters of many government ministries.


STRIVING FOR PEACE: The Trump Administration continues to work to achieve a comprehensive peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

The Trump Administration remains committed to achieving a lasting and comprehensive peace agreement.

Recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is a necessary condition for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

President Trump has been clear that his recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel does not mean the United States has taken a position on final status negotiations.

The Trump Administration believes that such decisions should be worked between Israelis and Palestinians.

The Trump Administration supports the status quo at Jerusalem’s holy sites.

FULFILLING PROMISES QUICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY: After announcing the United States’ recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, President Trump quickly and efficiently opened the Embassy in Israel at a low cost to taxpayers.

President Trump opened the Embassy in Jerusalem in just six months, compared to the seven to ten years expected to build an entirely new and secure permanent embassy.

Initial modifications allowing the Embassy to open on May 14, 2018, cost just $400,000.

United States diplomatic staff in Israel has worked around the clock to ensure the Embassy was ready to open by May 14, 2018.

The Trump Administration has begun updating all Federal Government maps to reflect Jerusalem’s status as Israel’s capital under American policy.

To celebrate the opening of the United States’ new Embassy in Jerusalem, the Trump Administration sent a high-level delegation, led by Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan and including Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin, Senior Advisor Jared Kushner, Senior Advisor Ivanka Trump, and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt.

Israel considers naming new Jerusalem train station after President Donald Trump



Israel Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz announced Wednesday his plans to name a new train station near the Western Wall after President Donald Trump

“The Kotel [Western Wall] is the holiest place to the Jewish people, and I have decided to name the train station leading to it after US President Donald Trump, in recognition of his brave and historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital,” Katz said, according to Ynetnews in Israel, referring to Trump’s recent decision to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
What’s the story?

If the railway project is approved and built, it would be a two-mile extension of the soon-to-be-opened high-speed railway that runs between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, the Jewish Press reported. It would include two underground train stations including the City Center station and the Donald John Trump, Western Wall station near the Cardo in the Old City’s Jewish Quarter.


The high-speed railway project connecting the two cities has faced numerous delays and has been under construction since 2001.
What’s the approval process for the project?

The new project Tuesday received preliminary approval Tuesday, according to the Jerusalem Post.

“This project is now awaiting a discussion in the National Infrastructures Planning Committee,” Transportation Ministry spokesman Avner Ovadia told the Post. “When it is discussed there, it means that it receives priority in its advancement and in carrying out the project.”


It could take up to a year for final approval and at least four or five years to construct, barring any delays, Ovadia said.


The high-speed railway project connecting the two cities has faced numerous delays and has been under construction since 2001.

Pres. Trump, First Lady Melania, VP Pence, Second Lady Karen meet three released prisoners from N.Korea



Pres. Trump, First Lady Melania, VP Pence, Second Lady Karen meet three released prisoners from N.Korea



Trump and Melania give them heroes' welcome as they land back at U.S. Air Force base

Kim Jong-un released Kim Dong-chul, Kim Hak-song and Tony Kim – who were greeted as heroes in the U.S.
Trump and Melania personally met with them after their plane from Pyongyang arrived at 2:00 a.m.
President said: 'These are great people. Frankly, we didn't think this was going to happen, but it did'
Trump aims to sit down with North Korean dictator in late May or early June and thanked him personally.

Donald Trump welcomed three Americans imprisoned in North Korea back to the U.S. in the wee hours of Thursday morning, and said words most observers thought no American president would ever utter: 'We want to thank Kim Jong Un.'

The president and his wife Melania arrived at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington at 2:00 a.m. to greet Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, and called them 'incredible people.'

In extraordinary scenes, Trump and the first lady clapped and cheered as the men walked down the steps with their arms in the air and giving triumphant 'V' signs signifying both peace and victory.

Their first steps back on American soil came hours earlier, in Alaska, when the plane carrying them home stopped to refuel.

On the tarmac in suburban Maryland, Trump said: 'These are great people. Frankly, we didn't think this was going to happen, but it did. It was important to get these people out. This is a special night for these three really great people.'

Trump also thanked Kim Jong-un for freeing 'the folks early.' calling it 'a wonderful thing' and adding he believes the North Korean despot 'really wants to do something' and bring the hermit kingdom 'into the real world.'

He said: 'We're starting off on a new footing. I really think we have a very good chance of doing something very meaningful, and if anybody would've said that five years ago, 10 years ago, even a year ago, you would've said, 'That's not possible.'

'My proudest achievement will be when we denuclearize that entire [Korean] peninsula,' he added.

The freed trio were joined by a translator who relayed their sentiment that being home felt 'like a dream' and that the men were 'very, very happy' to be freed. They later gave President Trump a round of applause.

Kim Dong-chul, speaking about his time in North Korea, said: 'We were treated in many different ways. For me, I had to do a lot of labor. But when I got sick, I was also treated by them.'

Hi @brhodes. This is my humvee from Iraq. It was blown up by an Iranian EFP that amputated my right arm and destroyed my left hand. You gave them billions and removed sanctions despite knowing they were killing Americans. That is your legacy. You have blood on your hands.

Statement from Vice President Mike Pence on the Release of Three Americans

Thanks to President Trump’s tough minded diplomacy, three Americans held hostage in North Korea are coming home. While our administration is encouraged that North Korea freed these innocent hostages, we will not let off the pressure until we achieve full denuclearization. Our Secretary of State Mike Pompeo did a remarkable job overseeing the release of Kim Dong Chul, Tony Kim, and Kim Hak Song – and to them I say: safe travels and welcome home. This is a proud and memorable moment for America.

President Donald J. Trump is Ending United States Participation in an Unacceptable Iran Deal



President Trump announced that he will reinstate the 'highest level' of sanctions on Iran, withdrawing from the nuclear deal and sending a warning to any country helping Iran procure nuclear power.


President Donald J. Trump is Ending United States Participation in an Unacceptable Iran Deal

The Iran Deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.

President Donald J. Trump

PROTECTING AMERICA FROM A BAD DEAL: President Donald J. Trump is terminating the United States’ participation in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran and re-imposing sanctions lifted under the deal.

President Trump is terminating United States participation in the JCPOA, as it failed to protect America’s national security interests.

The JCPOA enriched the Iranian regime and enabled its malign behavior, while at best delaying its ability to pursue nuclear weapons and allowing it to preserve nuclear research and development.

The President has directed his Administration to immediately begin the process of re-imposing sanctions related to the JCPOA.

The re-imposed sanctions will target critical sectors of Iran’s economy, such as its energy, petrochemical, and financial sectors.

Those doing business in Iran will be provided a period of time to allow them to wind down operations in or business involving Iran.

Those who fail to wind down such activities with Iran by the end of the period will risk severe consequences.

United States withdrawal from the JCPOA will pressure the Iranian regime to alter its course of malign activities and ensure that Iranian bad acts are no longer rewarded. As a result, both Iran and its regional proxies will be put on notice. As importantly, this step will help ensure global funds stop flowing towards illicit terrorist and nuclear activities.

IRAN’S BAD FAITH AND BAD ACTIONS: Iran negotiated the JCPOA in bad faith, and the deal gave the Iranian regime too much in exchange for too little.

Intelligence recently released by Israel provides compelling details about Iran’s past secret efforts to develop nuclear weapons, which it lied about for years.

The intelligence further demonstrates that the Iranian regime did not come clean about its nuclear weapons activity, and that it entered the JCPOA in bad faith.

The JCPOA failed to deal with the threat of Iran’s missile program and did not include a strong enough mechanism for inspections and verification.

The JCPOA foolishly gave the Iranian regime a windfall of cash and access to the international financial system for trade and investment.

Instead of using the money from the JCPOA to support the Iranian people at home, the regime has instead funded a military buildup and continues to fund its terrorist proxies, such as Hizballah and Hamas.

Iran violated the laws and regulations of European countries to counterfeit the currency of its neighbor, Yemen, to support the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force’s destabilizing activities.

ADDRESSING IRANIAN AGGRESSION: President Trump is committed to ensuring Iran has no possible path to a nuclear weapon and is addressing the threats posed by the regime’s malign activities.

President Trump will work to assemble a broad coalition of nations to deny Iran all paths to a nuclear weapon and to counter the totality of the regime’s malign activities.

Nations must work together to halt the Iranian regime’s destabilizing drive for regional hegemony.

In Syria, the Iranian regime supports the Assad regime and is complicit in Assad’s atrocities against the Syrian people.

In Yemen, the regime has escalated the conflict and used the Houthis as a proxy to attack other nations.

In Iraq, Iran’s IRGC sponsors Shia militant groups and terrorists.

In Lebanon, the Iranian regime enables Hizballah to play a highly destabilizing role and to build an arsenal of weapons that threatens the region.

The Administration’s actions are directed against the malign behavior of the Iranian regime, not against the Iranian people, who are the regime’s longest-suffering victims.

President Trump is making clear that, in addition to never developing a nuclear weapon, the Iranian regime must:

Never have an ICBM, cease developing any nuclear-capable missiles, and stop proliferating ballistic missiles to others.

Cease its support for terrorists, extremists, and regional proxies, such as Hizballah, Hamas, the Taliban, and al-Qa’ida.

End its publicly declared quest to destroy Israel.

Stop its threats to freedom of navigation, especially in the Persian Gulf and Red Sea.

Cease escalating the Yemen conflict and destabilizing the region by proliferating weapons to the Houthis.

End its cyber-attacks against the United States and our allies, including Israel.

Stop its grievous human rights abuses, shown most recently in the regime’s crackdown against widespread protests by Iranian citizens.

Stop its unjust detention of foreigners, including United States citizens.



Wild Thing's comment..............

Another promise kept by President Trump. Grand slam by Trump.The message President Trump sent is America matters.This decision more than anything, restores American leadership. We’re no longer leading from behind.

I love my President. I got teary this time. He has brought America’s standing back.

President Trump brilliantly and concisely laid out the case against Iran. He properly killed the horrible deal. And, significantly, he imposed maximum sanctions, leaving Iran no breathing room and no negotiating options for modifying the deal.

This is a REAL President. Thank you God!!!

President Donald J. Trump Proclaims May 7, 2018, as Be Best Day



President Donald J. Trump Proclaims May 7, 2018, as Be Best Day


On Be Best Day, we encourage and promote the well-being of children everywhere. In an increasingly complex and inter‑connected world, nothing is more important than raising the next generation of Americans to be healthy, happy, productive, and morally responsible adults. This begins with educating our children about the many critical issues they must confront in our modern world that affect their ability to lead balanced and fulfilled lives.

Our Nation’s children deserve certain knowledge that they are safe to grow, learn, and make mistakes. Adults must provide them with the tools they need to make positive contributions in their schools, with their friends, and in their communities.

From every corner of our great country, we hear inspiring stories of Americans rising up to meet the challenges of our time, many of which have an especially pronounced effect on our children. On the inaugural Be Best Day, we highlight two of these challenges: negative social media behavior and the opioid crisis.

Children who spend large amounts of time on social media are more likely to report mental health issues than those who spend time on non-screen activities. Technology, of course, plays a critical role in the economic and social development of our country. We must, however, recognize that it can also be used to harm. Be Best Day reminds us to emphasize the importance of using technology in positive ways.

Additionally, opioid dependence, addiction, and abuse are at a point of crisis in America today. We all share a moral imperative to confront this crisis, and to help those families and children affected by it. Be Best Day affords an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of healthy children and pregnancies, including the risks neonatal abstinence syndrome poses to the long-term health of children.

Today, on Be Best Day, let us commit ourselves to the critical task of building a better future for our children. We redouble our efforts to promote well-being and acts of encouragement, kindness, and respect. We highlight the importance of responsible use of social media; and we confront the crisis of opioid misuse that is robbing so many of our children of their potential.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim May 7, 2018, as Be Best Day. I encourage Americans to take time to understand the many issues children face on a daily basis — both through personal interactions and through social media. I encourage parents to better understand the harmful effects of drug misuse on our youth, and also to find opportunities to support and celebrate our children. I encourage adults and parents to talk to children, and to get involved in programs that help educate our youth on the unique challenges related to growing up in today’s world.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this seventh day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand eighteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.

DONALD J. TRUMP

Remarks by the First Lady at the Launch of the “Be Best” Initiative



It also encourages parents to discuss the importance of being safe & responsible online with their kids.

White House

MRS. TRUMP: Thank you. Good afternoon. Welcome to the White House. As a mother and as First Lady, it concerns me that in today’s fast-paced and ever-connected world, children can be less prepared to express or manage their emotions and oftentimes turn to forums of destructive or addictive behavior, such as bullying, drug addiction or even suicide.

I feel strongly that, as adults, we can and should be best at educating our children about the importance of a healthy and balanced life.

So today, I’m very excited to announce BE BEST, an awareness campaign dedicated to the most valuable and fragile among us –-our children. (Applause.)

There is one goal to BE BEST — and that is to educate children about the many issues they are facing today. If we truly listen to what our kids have to say, whether it be their concerns or ideas, adults can provide them the support and tools they need to grow up to be happy and productive adults who contribute positively to society and their global communities.

At the same time, children deserve every opportunity to enjoy their innocence. Every child should know it is safe to make mistakes and that there are supportive adults and friends nearby to catch them if they fall. We also need to be mindful that they should learn to trust in themselves and their own emotions.

I believe our responsibility lies in the critical time before a child reaches adulthood. Let us teach children the importance of all aspects of their wellbeing, which includes social, emotional, and physical health.

There are too many critical issues facing children today, so the three main pillars of BE BEST will include wellbeing, social media use, and opioid abuse.

Together, I believe we should strive to provide kids with the tools they need to cultivate their social and emotional health.

We can and should teach children the importance of social and self-awareness, positive relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.

Once a child understands these vital skills, they will be able to communicate openly with one another and instill positive feelings of mutual respect, compassion, and self-esteem.

Let us teach our children the difference between right and wrong, and encourage them to be best in their individual paths in life.

Take, for example, Christian Bucks, a young man from York, Pennsylvania who is here with us today. When he was in second grade, Christian introduced the “Buddy Bench” at his elementary school to address loneliness and help other kids build new friendships. The Buddy Bench allows classmates to connect during recess and helps ensure that no student feels lonely. If a child sits on the bench, it signals other students to come over and ask them to play.

Christian’s school and community embraced the Buddy Bench, and today, at least one can be found in all 50 states.

Thank you, Christian, for your commitment to kindness. You should be very proud of your work, which is — I know has helped countless children. (Applause.) Please, stand up. Bravo.

I’d also like to talk about Orchard Lake Middle School in West Bloomfield Township, Michigan. I visited the school in October as part of National Bullying Prevention Month to speak to its students about the importance of being kind.

While I was there, I visited their Viking Huddle Class, which focuses on social emotional learning and teaches lessons about respecting others, inclusion, and being kind.

While I was there, I visited their Viking Huddle class, which focuses on social-emotional learning and teaches lessons about respecting others, inclusion, and being kind. As part of BE BEST, I plan to highlight ideas and programs such as Buddy Bench and the Viking Huddle class, with the hope that other schools or community groups will be inspired to replace [replicate] their efforts and take steps to improve the wellbeing of our children. We have invited some of the Viking Huddle class here today.

Thank you all for being and taking time here with us in the White House. (Applause.)

As we all know, social media can be both positively and negatively affect on our children. But too often, it is used in negative ways. When children learn positive online behaviors early-on, social media can be used in productive ways and can affect positive change.

I do believe that children should be both seen and heard, and it is our responsibility as adults to educate and remind them that when they are using their voices, whether verbally or online, they must choose their words wisely and speak with respect and compassion.

As an example, Kalani Goldberg, an 8th grade student from Arizona posted a video to her social media account to share the challenges she faced from bullies. In the video she said, “Every day, you are hurting me. Every day, you are hurting each other. So please stop. Stop hurting me.”

Kalani and her family have joined us here today, and I am happy to report that since posting her video, many have watched it and, most importantly, people have reached out to offer support and kindness. Thank you, Kalani, for being brave enough to share your story, and also for using your experience to bring positive change. Please stand up, Kalani. (Applause.)

I first learned about the real consequences of our nation’s opioid epidemic during my husband’s campaign. Since then, I have met with and learned from many people who have been affected by this true crisis. In October, I travelled to West Virginia to tour Lily’s Place, the nation’s first nonprofit infant recovery center.

Lily’s Place puts a priority on the whole family so that infants born dependent on drugs are given the best opportunity to thrive. They have been successful in this endeavor because parents are also given the support and tools needed to recover and succeed. Lily’s Place is a testament to the extraordinary work that everyday people can do when they put their mind to it.

I will use BE BEST to bring attention to programs such as these in order to encourage conversation and replication.

In February, I went to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in Ohio and a panel of doctors briefed me on the devastating effects that opioids are having, but also their important research on neonatal abstinence syndrome.

I am pleased to say that representatives from both Lily’s Place and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital are here today. Thank you. (Applause.) Thank you for being here, and thank you for your heroic work on behalf of children.

I want to thank the many people I have met with and learned from over the past year while researching these vital topics on behalf of children.

This includes the Cabinet Secretaries who have joined us here today, as well as representatives from Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Snap, Amazon, National Safety Council, and so many more.

I would like to thank the President, the Vice President, Karen Pence, and other members of the administration, as well as the members of Congress who are here today. I am honored to have you all with me, and I look forward to working together on the behalf of children in the coming years.

In my time as First Lady of the United States, I will make every effort to be best at championing the many successful well-being programs in existence today that teach the tools and skills for emotional, social, and physical well-being.

I will also work to shine a spotlight on the people, organizations, and programs across the country that are helping children overcome the many issues they’re facing as they grow up.

I will continue speaking with leaders in the technology industry about children’s online habits and raising awareness around the importance of positive behaviors. I will continue to work with those who are fighting drug addiction.

And most importantly, I will continue to travel and speak to children directly about both their victories and difficult realities they face.

My hope is that together, we can be best at helping children and families find effective ways to educate themselves and support each other.

I am asking you all to join me in providing support and guidance to our children so that we can make a real difference. How we raise and educate our children on a variety of topics will provide the blueprint for the next generation.

Together, let’s encourage children to dream big, think big, and do all they can to be best in everything that they do.

Thank you all for being here today. God bless you, your families, our children, and God bless the United States of America. (Applause.)

And now, it is my pleasure to call my husband to the stage to sign a proclamation calling today, May 7, BE BEST Day.

South Korea president says Trump deserves Nobel Peace Prize



South Korea president says Trump deserves Nobel Peace Prize

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean President Moon Jae-in said U.S. President Donald Trump deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to end the standoff with North Korea over its nuclear weapons program, a South Korean official said on Monday.


“President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize. What we need is only peace,” Moon told a meeting of senior secretaries, according to a presidential Blue House official who briefed media.

Moon and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Friday pledged at a summit to end hostilities between their countries and work toward the “complete denuclearization” of the Korean peninsula.

Trump is preparing for his own summit with Kim, which he said would take place in the next three to four weeks.

The Trump administration has led a global effort to impose ever stricter sanctions on North Korea and the U.S. president exchanged bellicose threats with Kim in the past year over North Korea’s development of nuclear missiles capable of reaching the United States.

In January, Moon said Trump “deserves big credit for bringing about the inter-Korean talks. It could be a resulting work of the U.S.-led sanctions and pressure”.

Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize just months into his presidency, an award many thought was premature, given that he had little to show for his peace efforts beyond rhetoric.

Even Obama said he was surprised and by the time he collected the prize in Oslo at the end of that year, he had ordered the tripling of U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

As well as Obama, three U.S. presidents have won the Nobel Peace Prize: Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Jimmy Carter

Moon’s Nobel Prize comment came in response to a congratulatory message from Lee Hee-ho, the widow of late South Korean President Kim Dae-jung, in which she said Moon deserved to win the prize, the Blue House official said.

Moon responded by saying Trump should get it.

Trump on Monday suggested his planned meeting with Kim take place at the Peace House on the border between North and South Korea.

The upcoming Trump-Kim meeting was the main subject of a private walk and chat that Kim and Moon had during their meeting at the border, the official said.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday that Trump would maintain a “pressure campaign” of harsh sanctions on North Korea until Kim scraps his nuclear weapon program.

Jobless claims running at lowest levels in 45 years





Jobless claims running at lowest levels in 45 years


Jobless claims ran at historic lows to end April, a great sign for the economy.

After hitting the lowest level since 1969 the week before, new claims for unemployment benefits rose just 2,000 to 211,000 in the last week of the month, the Department of Labor reported Thursday morning. That number was well below the 224,000 that forecasters had expected.

The past two weeks' very low readings drove the monthly average for claims down to 221,500. That's the lowest since early 1973.

Then, during Richard Nixon's presidency, the labor force was about half the size it is today.

Low new claims mean that few people are getting laid off, and consequently that net job creation is high.

Also, the total number of people claiming unemployment benefits dropped to generational lows in April. Altogether, 1.76 million people received benefits during the third week of the month, the lowest such mark in 44 years. Benefits are available for up to 26 weeks in most states.

The report is a good sign for Friday's jobs report for the month of April. Before Thursday's report on claims, investors expected a strong showing for the April jobs report, with around 190,000 new jobs.

With Pompeo in Charge, Watch the State Department Get its Swagger Back



With Pompeo in Charge, Watch the State Department Get its Swagger Back


“Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is on a mission to help the State Department ‘get its swagger back,’” Jackie Gingrich Cushman writes in Townhall. She explains that Secretary Pompeo’s leadership style “is direct and engaging and appears committed to bringing real change to the State Department.”

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is on a mission to help the State Department "get its swagger back." Its charge is "to be professional, to deliver diplomacy, American diplomacy around the world," Pompeo told European allies at NATO headquarters last week in Brussels. His personal charge is "to build that esprit and get the team on the field so that we can effectuate American diplomacy."

Pompeo comes to the job well prepared. He graduated first in his class at West Point, served in the Army and earned a law degree from Harvard University. He served three terms as congressman from the 4th District of Kansas before becoming director of the CIA. He is direct and engaging and appears committed to bringing real change to the State Department.

His first week in office has set the pace and allows us a view into his perspective. Since being sworn in last Thursday, Pompeo has traveled not only to Brussels, but to Riyadh, Tel Aviv and Amman. He made many public appearances, answered numerous reporters' questions and referred often to his mission.

On May 1, Pompeo addressed the State Department employees for the first time as Secretary of State. In his public remarks this past week, he has clearly articulated that his goal is for the State Department "to deliver President Trump and America's foreign policy around the world, to be the diplomatic face that achieves the outcomes that America so desperately needs to achieve in the world."

While in Brussels, Pompeo laid out the U.S. perspective and resolve regarding NATO. "This alliance has been an essential pillar of American security interests for decades," he said. "Some of our strongest bilateral partnerships are encompassed within this alliance, and I made it clear today that the United States is eager to continue to lead here in NATO."

Pompeo clarified Trump's support for Article 5, under which the alliance's members consider an attack on one country as an attack on all of them. "Our commitment...to the collective defense under Article 5 of the Washington Treaty remains ironclad...Threats to our common security come from many sources and we must address them all to keep people safe around the world."

Pompeo also said that other NATO members should increase defense spending and burden sharing. Regarding Russia, Pompeo stated that "The United States has made abundantly clear that NATO should not return to business as usual with Russia until Moscow shows a clear change in its actions and complies with international law." Pompeo also articulated that terrorism had to be defeated jointly.

In Riyadh, Pompeo said Iran is "the greatest sponsor of terrorism in the world, and we are determined to make sure it never possesses a nuclear weapon."

While in Jordan, Pompeo stated "we do believe the Israelis have the right to defend themselves, and we're fully supportive of that." He also noted that "we remain deeply concerned about Iran's dangerous escalation of threats to Israel and the region and Iran's ambition to dominate the Middle East remain."

Pompeo recognized "President Trump's maximum pressure campaign and the work that has been done all around the world to apply pressure to North Korea. We are encouraged by President Moon and Leader Kim Jong-un's stated goal of complete denuclearization." He reinforced that "our objective remains unchanged. We're committed to permanent, verifiable, irreversible dismantling of North Koreans' weapons of mass destruction programs without delay."


Pompeo referred several times during his trip to choices that all countries have, along with the consequences of their choices. "We would love nothing more than them [Russia] to rejoin, right, the democratic world and behave in ways that they're not doing today. So very much prepared to have that dialogue; it's their choice if they want to be part of that or not."

For North Korea, "Kim Jong-un's going to have to make a decision," said Pompeo. "He's going to have to make a big decision. Does he want the pressure campaign to continue? ...Or is he looking for something big and bold and different, something that hasn't happened before?"

Pompeo also understands that "the United States diplomatic corps needs to be in every corner, every stretch of the world, executing missions on behalf of this country."

While Pompeo has yet to clearly lay out the tactics that will be needed for the State Department to get its "swagger back" he has made great strides in a week.

But, by clearly articulating the president's foreign policy, providing clear choices to other nations, and reaffirming the importance and reach of American diplomacy, with a focus on execution and outcomes. Pompeo has made a real start.

President Trump Signs Order to Protect Religious Freedom, Establishes New White House Faith Initiative



President Trump Signs Order to Protect Religious Freedom, Establishes New White House Faith Initiative

“During the annual National Day of Prayer commemoration at the White House on Thursday, President Trump signed the latest executive order of his presidency, to establish a faith-based office, the White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative,” Emily Tillett reports for CBS News.

“Prayer has always been at the center of the American life. America is a nation of believers, and together we are strengthened by the power of prayer,” President Trump said at the Rose Garden ceremony.


In the Washington Examiner, Paul Bedard writes that “top White House advisor Jared Kushner this week helped to tighten evangelical community ties to President Trump, this time over sentencing and prison reform.” Bedard reports that evangelicals have said that the “White House has kept the door open to them.”

President Trump Calls the U.S.-France Relationship ‘Unbreakable.’ History Shows He’s Right



Hosted on Fotki">


President Trump Calls the U.S.-France Relationship ‘Unbreakable.’ History Shows He’s Right.


merica’s relationship with France predates our founding as a country. From the days of Benjamin Franklin and General Marquis de Lafayette to the modern day with Presidents Donald J. Trump and Emmanuel Macron, U.S. and French leaders have long shared common values on a range of economic and security-related issues.

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump welcome the French President and his wife, Mrs. Brigitte Macron, to the White House on April 24. The occasion marks the first official State Visit under the Trump Administration, as well as the first State Visit from France since President Francois Hollande came to Washington in 2014.

The two couples will meet for a scenic tour of the monuments in our Nation’s capital Monday evening before the official visit begins. They will then travel to the home of President George Washington in Mount Vernon, Virginia, for a private dinner before participating in the State Arrival Ceremony on the White House South Lawn Tuesday morning.

French settlers came to the American continent as early as the 1500s. When the American colonists were fighting for independence, France supported our Revolutionary War with military and economic aid from 1775 to 1781. French leaders also formally recognized our new Nation as early as 1778.

Some of America’s most prominent Founding Fathers—Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson—served as U.S. diplomats to France. French style was incorporated throughout early American art and architecture, including at the White House. While refurbishing the structure after the fire of 1814, President James Monroe ordered a suite of French furniture for what is now the Blue Room. And one of America’s icons, the Statue of Liberty, was a gift from France in 1886.

Much of our Nation’s modern-day relationship with France dates to World War II, including the post-war institutions that underpinned both the Western order and our ideological confrontation with communism. France and America were two of the original five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council. The countries are party to several of the same multilateral groups, including the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), G-7, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

The two countries also enjoy a strong trade relationship: France is America’s third-largest trade partner in Europe. When President Trump met with President Macron in Paris last year, the two leaders agreed to pursue a trading environment that was free and fair for workers in both countries.

“Both President Macron and I understand our responsibility to prioritize the interests of our countries and, at the same time, to be respectful of the world in which we live,” President Trump said. “The friendship between our two nations—and ourselves, I might add—is unbreakable.”


President Trump’s remarks came as he enjoyed the hospitality of President and Mrs. Macron in France for Bastille Day. Now, President Trump and the First Lady have an opportunity to welcome the Macrons to Washington and strengthen this enduring bond even further.

More Praise for President Trump’s Commitment to Border Security


WTAS: More Praise for President Trump’s Commitment to Border Security

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte: “President Trump has demonstrated his commitment to restoring the rule of law by directing his Administration to enforce our nation’s immigration laws. The President’s strong action has caused illegal immigration to drop significantly at the U.S.-Mexico border. In addition to this progress, we also need to improve our nation’s immigration laws and provide more tools to further reduce illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and human smuggling. The House of Representatives recently passed the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act and Kate’s Law. These bills combat dangerous sanctuary policies that allow criminals to remain on our streets and punish felons who repeatedly enter the U.S. illegally, respectively. Both of these bills would dramatically improve public safety and I call on the Senate again to pass them without delay. The House Judiciary Committee has also approved a number of bills to strengthen the enforcement of our immigration laws within the interior of the United States, reform the refugee and asylum programs, and ensure unaccompanied minors who make the dangerous journey to the U.S. are safely returned home. The House must pass all these bills to provide the Trump Administration the tools needed to secure the border and enforce our immigration laws, and to ensure that future administrations do not ignore immigration enforcement laws.”


Rep. Kevin Cramer: “Actions speak louder than words. Due to President Trump’s commitment to renewing border security, apprehensions are down 46% in the short time since he took office. Indeed, we are a nation of immigrants, but unlike our previous commander and chief, President Trump is setting the record straight that all immigrants must come here legally – the way our ancestors did. But, the President can’t do this alone. We in the House of Representatives passed Kate’s law, the No Sanctuary Cities for Criminals Act, and provided the full White House requested amount of $1.6 billion towards building the border wall. It’s up to the Senate now to act and fulfill our promise to the American people.”


Rep. David Rouzer: “Strengthening our national security begins right here at home. Under the leadership of President Trump and with a Republican majority in the House and Senate, a $1.5 billion boost for our border security is now law. This will also enable the federal government to hire more agents, enhance technology, update infrastructure, help deter and prevent illegal aliens from crossing our borders, and stem the flow of illegal activities, such as the smuggling of drugs, into our country. I’ve also voted for measures, such as Kate’s Law and the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act, to increase the penalty for deported criminals who re-enter the United States, protect law-abiding citizens and withhold federal grants from cities that do not comply with federal immigration laws. I applaud President Trump’s efforts to fulfill his campaign promise to make the security at our southern borders a top priority, and I look forward to continuing to work with him to implement his comprehensive strategy to secure our nation – both at home and abroad.”


Rep. Bruce Westerman: “Our nation’s southern border has lacked necessary security and control for too long. I have toured the border first hand and will be making additional trips. While the brave men and women of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection do an outstanding job with the resources at their disposal, they are unable to prevent the immense flow of illegal immigrants, deadly narcotics, and illicit contraband from pouring into our country. President Trump today proved he is serious about securing our borders and protecting American citizens at home. I applaud his efforts and pledge to continue working with him in the months and years to come as we bring real security and control to our southern border.”

Rep. Doug Collins: “Sanctuary cities and illegal criminals have been put on notice. From 2016 to 2017, illegal border crossings fell 52% for the period covering February to March. A human smuggler based at our southwest border reports that his business is at an all-time low. He’s considering a career change. At the same time, the House continues to work with President Trump to strengthen immigration enforcement policy through legislation like Kate’s Law and the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act, and it’s clear that 2017 has brought new perspective to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. As President Trump visits our southern border and we consider the status of illegal immigration into our country today, we realize that the safety of Americans and the rule of law are once again non-negotiables.”


Rep. Pete Olson: “Texas like Arizona is on the front lines of our nation's border security crisis. For too long, our border patrol was hamstrung by policies of the Obama Administration that emboldened illegal border crossings by drug cartels and criminal aliens seeking to harm our communities. Through executive action and working with a Republican Congress, President Trump has taken important steps to turn the tide and these steps are working. This year, the Immigration Customs and Enforcement Agency has already removed over 2,700 criminal gang members, compared to 2,057 in all of 2016. The House has passed Kate's Law to expand penalties for returning deported, illegal immigrants who commit more crimes, and a bill to block funds for sanctuary cities. We also passed a spending bill that funds President Trump's border wall. I urge my Senate colleagues to stand with our President and pass these bills as well. I thank President Trump for taking a strong stand to secure our borders and protect the American people.”

Yes it matters.... remember our First Lady represents our country and it is important how she presents herself. The wacky things Michele Obama wore were IMO horrible and in very bad taste. It is so wonderful to finally have a First Lady that loves fashion, knows what it is and loves our country. Unlike the America haters we had for 8 miserable years.I will always remember as a little girl I would hear the news talk about Jackie Kennedy.

The president just made a titanic foreign policy shift. The media missed it.



The president just made a titanic foreign policy shift. The media missed it.


By Newt Gingrich

This newspaper’s legendary former publisher, Philip Graham, famously described journalism as the business of writing the “first rough draft of history.” This week, as President Trump gave a historic speech in Saudi Arabia before the leaders of more than 50 Muslim-majority nations, journalism’s first draft missed the history almost entirely.

While the media focused on the ephemeral questions — whether the president would use campaign rhetoric in a diplomatic setting, or how the trip would affect the Obama legacy — they largely missed the real drama of the moment: a titanic shift in U.S. foreign policy occurring right before their eyes.

Trump stood before an unprecedented gathering of leaders to do something far more significant than utter a single phrase or undermine his predecessor’s record. He was there to rally the Muslim world, in his words, “to meet history’s great test” — defeating the forces of terrorism and extremism. He did so in a way that no American president ever had before. While extending a hand of friendship to Muslim nations, he also issued them a clear challenge: to take the lead in solving the crisis that has engulfed their region and spread across the planet. “Drive out the terrorists and extremists,” he urged them, or consign your peoples to futures of misery and squalor.

To find a comparably dramatic moment in the history of U.S. foreign policy, we have to look all the way back to 1982. That June, 35 years ago next month, President Ronald Reagan stood in the Royal Gallery at the Palace of Westminster in London and called on the West to rally in defense of freedom and against communist aggression.

In that one speech, Reagan predicted the fall of communism and reinvigorated the Western alliance. “We see totalitarian forces in the world who seek subversion and conflict around the globe to further their barbarous assault on the human spirit,” Reagan said. “What, then, is our course? Must civilization perish in a hail of fiery atoms? Must freedom wither in a quiet, deadening accommodation with totalitarian evil?”

Reagan declared his speech a turning point in history — and it was. On Sunday, Trump, too, declared that his challenge would be a turning point, one way or another. And he posed to that assembly in Riyadh an equally dramatic choice. It was, he said, “a choice between two futures” — the path of civilization, or the path of evil and death.

“America is prepared to stand with you” in the fight against terrorism, Trump pledged. “But the nations of the Middle East cannot wait for American power to crush this enemy for them. The nations of the Middle East will have to decide what kind of future they want for themselves, for their countries, and for their children.”


Never before has an American president tried so clearly to unite the civilized world, including the nations of the Middle East and Africa, against the forces of terrorism. Never before has an American president issued so direct a challenge to those nations to do more in the fight. And never before has an American president so plainly put the ultimate responsibility for eradicating terrorism on the nations of the region. In doing so, Trump’s speech implicitly repudiated the approaches of his two immediate predecessors and promised instead what he characterized as a “principled realism,” based on a clear-eyed view of America’s interests, security and limits.

That this decisive shift in U.S. foreign policy occurred on a foreign trip within the first four months of the administration is all the more impressive. Reagan didn’t take his first international trip until well into his second year. And unlike President Barack Obama’s early speech to the Muslim world in 2009, Trump backed up his words with action.

The United States and Saudi Arabia signed a $110 billion arms deal, the largest in U.S. history, which will bolster the kingdom’s ability to contribute to counterterrorism operations across the region. This will reduce the burden on the U.S. military and send a clear message that this administration takes the threat of Iran seriously. The agreements also included a new commitment to crack down on terrorism financing in the Persian Gulf states, as well as hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of Saudi investment in the United States.


Journalists and Washington bureaucrats, who are so deeply embedded in the establishment that they can’t see out of it, may see Trump’s call to action as a distracting sideshow from a status quo they can’t imagine changing. And yet this week, it already has. Foreign leaders and the American people alike can see in this trip the core of a new, reality-based foreign policy.

President Trump and First Lady Meet with Pope Francis at the Vatican



President Trump and First Lady Meet with Pope Francis at the Vatican

This morning, President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump participated in an arrival ceremony at the Vatican after arriving in Rome, Italy, last night.

President Trump met with His Holiness Pope Francis and later with Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin. In their meetings, the President focused on how the United States, the Holy See, and the international community can work together to combat terrorism.

The Pope and the President discussed how religious communities can combat human suffering in crisis regions, such as Syria, Libya, and ISIS-controlled territory. President Trump affirmed that the United States and the Holy See share many fundamental values and seek to engage globally to promote human rights, combat human suffering, and protect religious freedom.

The President also renewed the commitment of the United States to fighting global famine. As he relayed at the Vatican, the United States is proud to announce more than $300 million in anti-famine spending, focused on the crises in Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, and Nigeria.

I want to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of the hospital, who all do such beautiful and critical work.”

The First Lady added, “Upon landing in Belgium, I learned a young boy and his family who had been waiting for a heart transplant was informed that the hospital has found a donor.

Netanyahu’s wife talking to Trumps: ‘They love you’ despite what media says

During President Trump’s visit to Israel, the wife of Israel’s prime minister reportedly complained to first lady Melania Trump that the mass media hates them both, but that “the people love us.”

Channel 2, a 33-year-old commercial TV station based in Jerusalem, reported the comments Monday after the president and first lady landed at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv.

Trump has referred to the American media as “fake news” and “the enemy of the American people.”

For his part, Netanyahu has accused Israel’s mass media of attempting to remove him from the government and publishing leaked quoted from confidential conversations.


While the president and first lady were being escorted to Air Force One following their visit, Trump reportedly told Prime Minister Netanyahu that Melania was a big fan of his wife.

Sara Netanyahu was said to have replied to President Trump, “I love her. I’m also her fan. I talk every place about her, how great you are.”



Sara Netanyahu reportedly said to the Trumps, “You know, in Israel, all the people like us. The media hate us, but the people love us, like you.”

“I am very excited for the upcoming trip. This will not just be an opportunity to support my husband as he works on important matters of national security and relations, it will also be my honor to visit and speak with women and children from different countries, with different perspectives,” Melania Trump was quoted as saying in a statement from the Office of the First Lady.

The president and first lady, along with son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump, will visit Saudi Arabia and Israel, then travel to Sicily, Vatican City and Italy before concluding the trip in Belgium.


The first family will return to the United States on May 27.

In addition to her speech to military families, Melania Trump also has several other speeches planned during the G7 summit in Taormina, Sicily and the NATO summit in Brussels, Belgium.

The first lady will join her husband at some events but her full schedule isn’t being released due to security concerns.

She has said she will spend much of her time speaking with both women and children.

A native of Slovenia, which was part of Yugoslavia until 1991, Melania Trump speaks Slovene, Serbian, French, German and Italian in addition to English.

President Donald J. Trump Proclaims the Third Saturday of Each May as Armed Forces Day



President Donald J. Trump Proclaims the Third Saturday of Each May as Armed Forces Day.


ARMED FORCES DAY, 2017

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A PROCLAMATION


For almost 70 years, our Nation has set aside one day to recognize the great debt we owe to the men and women who serve in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. On Armed Forces Day, we salute the bravery of those who defend our Nation's peace and security. Their service defends for Americans the freedom that all people deserve.

This year, we also reflect on the 100th anniversary of our Nation's entry into World War I. More than 4.7 million Americans would ultimately serve in the United States Armed Forces during that terrible conflict. Their sacrifice has not been forgotten. One hundred years later, we face different threats and challenges. But our safety and security, and the defense of our way of life, rest in the same able hands of our Armed Forces.

Because our Armed Forces must constantly adapt to new threats, our Nation is committed to ensuring they have the tools and resources they need as they train, deploy, and fight in defense of our country and defending our values. This is why my budget calls for a $54 billion increase in national defense spending.

Today, we salute our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen for their dedication as they carry out the extraordinary duty of protecting our country. We also pay tribute to the families who serve alongside them, lending their steadfast love and support.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States, continuing the tradition of my predecessors in office, do hereby proclaim the third Saturday of each May as Armed Forces Day.

I invite the Governors of the States and Territories and other areas subject to the jurisdiction of the United States to provide for the observance of Armed Forces Day within their jurisdiction each year in an appropriate manner designed to increase public understanding and appreciation of the Armed Forces of the United States. I also invite veterans, civic, and other organizations to join in the observance of Armed Forces Day each year.

Finally, I call upon all Americans to display the flag of the United States at their homes and businesses on Armed Forces Day, and I urge citizens to learn more about military service by attending and participating in the local observances of the day.

Proclamation 9452 of May 20, 2016, is hereby superseded.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this nineteenth day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-first.

DONALD J. TRUMP

White House Movie Theater Opened for East Wing Tours for the First Time in History




White House Movie Theater Opened for East Wing Tours for the First Time in History

At the direction of First Lady Melania Trump, visitors to the East Wing are now being treated to a new piece of history along the tour route. Beginning today, the self-guided tours in the East Wing include the White House movie theater.

"The White House belongs to the people of this country," stated First Lady Melania Trump. "I believe everyone who takes the time to visit and tour the White House should have as much access to its rich history and wonderful traditions as possible. It is my hope that our visitors truly enjoy the newest piece of the tour."

In July 1942, the East Terrace cloakroom was converted into a movie theater under the direction of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In 1982-1983, during the Reagan administration, a major remodeling introduced 51 seats in tiered rows. The most recent refurbishment in 2004-2005 was inspired by theater interiors of the early 20th century.

To commemorate today's opening, the White House Visitors Office passed out White House candy to children, and spoke with some of the visitors. Ginna Felts from Nashville, Tennessee said, "The history of this is all so exciting. To think that so many Presidents and their families have watched movies or entertained guests in this room, and to be one of the first to see it is just amazing."

Dan White, visiting from Denver, Colorado, was especially excited by the movie theater, exclaiming, "We're witnessing history!"

President and Melania Trump Host Active Duty Spouses and Mothers at White House


White House Movie Theater Opened for East Wing Tours for the First Time in History


On Military Spouse Day, we honor military spouses for their invaluable contributions to the defense of this great Nation. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan first recognized this day with a proclamation, honoring the exemplary service and immeasurable sacrifices of our Nation's military spouses. This long overdue tribute gives thanks to those who, since the formation of our Republic, have served our country with selfless support. Military spouses have been, and continue to be, a steady, strong presence on the home front and in the hearts of our military men and women.

Most military spouses hold no rank and wear no uniform, yet humbly serve our Nation with distinction. They endure deployments for weeks, months, and years at a time, sometimes with little warning, and they must brace themselves for the uncertainty that comes with goodbye. When duty calls, they shoulder the full day-to-day responsibilities of managing a household and often of parenting ‑‑ many times with little or no support. They face frequent relocations, which interrupt their careers and educational pursuits and require them to leave churches, homes, and friends. Most difficult of all, military spouses live with constant worry about the daily risks our military forces take for our country. Military spouses navigate these and other challenges with uncommon grace and inspiring strength.

My Administration will focus on supporting and increasing opportunities for military spouses. I urge American businesses to create opportunities for hiring, training, and promoting military spouses, and to identify ways to keep them employed following relocations. These women and men have skills and experiences valued by employers and coworkers alike. They give so much of themselves to our country, and they deserve our enduring respect and appreciation in return. I have pledged to our Armed Forces to have their backs, and that means providing for our military spouses as well.

On this Military Spouse Day, we recognize the exceptional women and men who have shared their loved ones with our country. We honor them for their service, praise them for their sacrifices, and offer them our gratitude and prayers on behalf of a grateful Nation.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim May 12, 2017, as Military Spouse Day. I call upon the people of the United States to honor military spouses with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twelfth day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-first.


DONALD J. TRUMP

Thank you President Trump and VP Pence....100 Days of American Greatness





100 Days of American Greatness

Source.... GOP Blog

Since January 20, President Trump has been working nonstop to revive America’s economy, fight for American workers, and protect our nation -- despite extreme opposition from the mainstream media to a degree no president has ever witnessed.

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

Optimism in America’s economy is soaring thanks to President Trump’s commitment to strengthening American industry, promoting business and innovation, and bringing jobs back to our country.

Delivering on his promise to put American workers first, President Trump immediately withdrew the United States from Obama’s job-killing Trans-Pacific Partnership that would have resulted in a second NAFTA. He has also slashed red tape in Washington, signing an executive order that mandates two regulations must be eliminated for every one introduced.

President Trump ordered the construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines, sparking a revolution of American energy and an end to our dependence on Middle East oil.

Because of President Trump’s pro-growth policies that make it easier to do business in America, companies such as Ford, Exxon Mobil, and Charter Communications have agreed to make new investments in our own country rather than overseas. Our President’s leadership has resulted in hundreds of thousands of new jobs for American workers and has earned the most positive assessment of America’s economy since 2007.

Securing Our Border

Following through on one of the most critical issues of his campaign, President Trump has cracked down on sanctuary cities that break the law by harboring illegal immigrants, began deporting the more than two million criminal illegal immigrants living in our country, implemented guidelines to end the practice of catch-and-release, and signed an executive order to begin building the border wall between the United States and Mexico. Illegal Immigration at the U.S.-Mexico Border is at its lowest in 17 years.

Committed to Conservative Principles

President Trump nominated a highly respected, eminently qualified executive cabinet, lauded as the most conservative in history. Conservatives such as Jeff Sessions, Ben Carson, and James Mattis are working with President Trump to lead our nation with strong principles and a clear vision.

Following the selection of an exceptional cabinet, President Trump announced his nominee for Justice Scalia’s vacant Supreme Court seat: Judge Neil Gorsuch. A preeminently qualified man of irreproachable character and a strict constitutionalist, Judge Neil Gorsuch was swiftly confirmed as the Supreme Court’s 113th Justice, fulfilling one of President Trump’s most critical campaign promises.


Making America Safe Again

President Trump has strengthened America’s standing in the world by concentrating on strategic diplomacy and ensuring that our foreign policy reflects his mottos of “America First” and “peace through strength.” He has met with foreign leaders including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni of Italy, and President Xi of China, reaffirming America’s position as leader of the liberated world and unifier of free, democratic people. His bombing campaign against key ISIS transit channels in Afghanistan took a decisive step forward in the fight against ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and other radical Islamist insurgent groups that threaten freedom in the Western world.


President Trump has also stood up for our heroic veterans who put their lives on the line for the sake of our country. He signed a bill extending the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act to give veterans the choice to seek medical attention outside of the VA medical system and additionally added much-needed transparency and accountability to the bureaucracy.

During his first 100 days in office, President Trump has exhibited a clear vision, resolute leadership, and an uncompromising dedication to the American people just as he promised throughout his campaign. His commitment to the needs of America’s veterans, his work to promote women entrepreneurs, and his championship of the American workers have proven him the right leader to put “America First” and get the job done.

Joint Statement from President Donald J. Trump and President Mauricio Macri



Joint Statement from President Donald J. Trump and President Mauricio Macri


President Donald J. Trump hosted President Mauricio Macri of Argentina today to discuss ways to deepen the close partnership between the United States and Argentina. President Trump welcomed Argentina’s growing leadership role on the world stage and the political and economic reforms recently implemented by the Argentine Government, which have improved the environment for investment, trade, and long term economic development. President Trump offered his support to President Macri as Argentina prepares to host the World Trade Organization Ministerial and assume the G-20 Presidency.

The two leaders underscored their continuing commitment to expanding trade and investment between the United States and Argentina. Recognizing the importance of trade in agricultural products to the United States-Argentina bilateral economic relationship, the Presidents directed their Cabinets to expeditiously chart a path forward to resolve pending bilateral agricultural issues, based on scientific principles and international standards. The leaders further expressed their desire to see significant future growth in two-way trade of agricultural and industrial products to the benefit of producers and consumers in both countries.

They also pledged to strengthen our partnership to combat narcotics trafficking, money laundering, terrorist financing, corruption, and other illicit finance activities through the newly established Argentina-United States Dialogue on Illicit Finance. Recognizing the benefits and risks of our increasing dependence on networked information, the leaders discussed the increased importance of cooperation on cyber policy. They agreed to launch a new bilateral Cyber Working Group, which will protect the security and economic interests of both countries, companies, and Internet users.

The two Presidents raised their strong concern over the deteriorating situation in Venezuela, and they agreed to work closely together to preserve democratic institutions in that country.

President Trump told President Macri that the United States will launch the Global Entry Trusted Travelers Program in Argentina in May, facilitating the expedited entry of pre-vetted, low-risk Argentine travelers through United States ports of entry. Argentina will be just the tenth country in the world admitted to this special program, which facilitates rising business and tourism ties while allowing United States border security personnel to focus resources on other potential risks.

Finally, at President Macri’s request, President Trump delivered a large tranche of declassified documents relating to human rights abuses in Argentina during its military dictatorship.

President Trump FULL REMARKS on Holocaust Remembrance Day





President Trump FULL REMARKS on Holocaust Remembrance Day ........President Trump on Holocaust Remembrance Day: "Today we mourn, we remember, we pray and we pledge never again."

Remarks by President Trump at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum National Days of Remembrance

United States Capitol
Washington, D.C.

11:30 A.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. Thank you. Friends, members of Congress, ambassadors, veterans, and, most especially, to the survivors here with us today, it’s an honor to join you on this very, very solemn occasion. I am deeply moved to stand before those who survived history’s darkest hour. Your cherished presence transforms this place into a sacred gathering.

Thank you, Tom Bernstein, Alan Holt, Sara Bloomfield, and everyone at the Holocaust Memorial Council and Museum for your vital work and tireless contributions.

We are privileged to be joined by Israel’s Ambassador to the United States, friend of mine -- he’s done a great job and said some wonderful words -- Ron Dermer. The State of Israel is an eternal monument to the undying strength of the Jewish people. The fervent dream that burned in the hearts of the oppressed is now filled with the breath of life, and the Star of David waves atop a great nation arisen from the desert.

To those in the audience who have served America in uniform, our country eternally thanks you. We are proud and grateful to be joined today by veterans of the Second World War who liberated survivors from the camps. Your sacrifice helped save freedom for the world -- for the entire world. (Applause.)

Sadly, this year marks the first Day of Remembrance since the passing of Elie Wiesel, a great person, a great man. His absence leaves an empty space in our hearts, but his spirit fills this room. It is the kind of gentle spirit of an angel who lived through hell, and whose courage still lights the path from darkness. Though Elie’s story is well known by so many people, it’s always worth repeating. He suffered the unthinkable horrors of the Holocaust. His mother and sister perished in Auschwitz. He watched his father slowly dying before his own young eyes in Buchenwald. He lived through an endless nightmare of murder and death, and he inscribed on our collective conscience the duty we have to remember that long, dark night so as never to again repeat it.

The survivors in this hall, through their testimony, fulfill the righteous duty to never forget, and engrave into the world’s memory the Nazi genocide of the Jewish people. You witnessed evil, and what you saw is beyond description, beyond any description. Many of you lost your entire family, everything and everyone you loved, gone. You saw mothers and children led to mass slaughter. You saw the starvation and the torture. You saw the organized attempt at the extermination of an entire people -- and great people, I must add. You survived the ghettos, the concentration camps and the death camps. And you persevered to tell your stories. You tell of these living nightmares because, despite your great pain, you believe in Elie’s famous plea, that “For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.”

That is why we are here today -- to remember and to bear witness. To make sure that humanity never, ever forgets.
The Nazis massacred 6 million Jews. Two out of every three Jews in Europe were murdered in the genocide. Millions more innocent people were imprisoned and executed by the Nazis without mercy, without even a sign of mercy.

Yet, even today, there are those who want to forget the past. Worse still, there are even those filled with such hate, total hate, that they want to erase the Holocaust from history. Those who deny the Holocaust are an accomplice to this horrible evil. And we’ll never be silent -- we just won’t -- we will never, ever be silent in the face of evil again. (Applause.)

Denying the Holocaust is only one of many forms of dangerous anti-Semitism that continues all around the world. We’ve seen anti-Semitism on university campuses, in the public square, and in threats against Jewish citizens. Even worse, it’s been on display in the most sinister manner when terrorists attack Jewish communities, or when aggressors threaten Israel with total and complete destruction.

This is my pledge to you: We will confront anti-Semitism (Applause.) We will stamp out prejudice. We will condemn hatred. We will bear witness. And we will act. As President of the United States, I will always stand with the Jewish people -- and I will always stand with our great friend and partner, the State of Israel.

So today, we remember the 6 million Jewish men, women and children whose lives and dreams were stolen from this Earth.
We remember the millions of other innocent victims the Nazis so brutally targeted and so brutally killed. We remember the survivors who bore more than we can imagine. We remember the hatred and evil that sought to extinguish human life, dignity, and freedom.

But we also remember the light that shone through the darkness. We remember sisters and brothers who gave everything to those they loved -- survivors like Steven Springfield, who, in the long death march, carried his brother on his back. As he said, “I just couldn’t give in.”

We remember the brave souls who banded together to save the lives of their neighbors -- even at the risk of their own life. And we remember those first hopeful moments of liberation, when at long last the American soldiers arrived in camps and cities throughout occupied Europe, waving the same beautiful flags before us today, speaking those three glorious words: “You are free.”

It is this love of freedom, this embrace of human dignity, this call to courage in the face of evil that the survivors here today have helped to write onto our hearts. The Jewish people have endured oppression, persecution, and those who have sought and planned their destruction. Yet, through the suffering, they have persevered. They have thrived. And they have enlightened the world. We stand in awe of the unbreakable spirit of the Jewish people.

I want to close with a story enshrined in the Museum that captures the moment of liberation in the final days of the war.
It is the story of Gerda Klein, a young Jewish woman from Poland. Some of you know her. Gerda’s family was murdered by the Nazis. She spent three years imprisoned in labor camps, and the last four months of the war on a terrible death march. She assumed it was over. At the end, on the eve of her 21st birthday, her hair had lost all of its color, and she weighed a mere 68 pounds. Yet she had the will to live another day. It was tough.

Gerda later recalled the moment she realized that her long-awaited deliverance had arrived. She saw a car coming towards her. Many cars had driven up before, but this one was different. On its hood, in place of that wretched swastika, was a bright, beautiful, gleaming white star. Two American soldiers got out. One walked up to her. The first thing Gerda said was what she had been trained to say: “We are Jewish, you know.” “We are Jewish.” And then he said, “So am I.” It was a beautiful moment after so much darkness, after so much evil.

As Gerda took this solider to see the other prisoners, the American did something she had long forgotten to even expect -- he opened the door for her. In Gerda’s words, “that was the moment of restoration of humanity, of humanness, of dignity, and of freedom.”

But the story does not end there. Because, as some of you know, that young American soldier who liberated her and who showed her such decency would soon become her husband. A year later, they were married. In her words, “He opened not only the door for me, but the door to my life and to my future.”

Gerda has since spent her life telling the world of what she witnessed. She, like those survivors who are among us today, has dedicated her life to shining a light of hope through the dark of night.

Your courage strengthens us. Your voices inspire us. And your stories remind us that we must never, ever shrink away from telling the truth about evil in our time. Evil is always seeking to wage war against the innocent and to destroy all that is good and beautiful about our common humanity. But evil can only thrive in darkness. And what you have brought us today is so much more powerful than evil. You have brought us hope -- hope that love will conquer hatred, that right will defeat wrong, and that peace will rise from the ashes of war.

Each survivor here today is a beacon of light, and it only takes one light to illuminate even the darkest space. Just like it takes only one truth to crush a thousand lies and one hero to change the course of history. We know that in the end, good will triumph over evil, and that as long as we refuse to close our eyes or to silence our voices, we know that justice will ultimately prevail.

So today we mourn. We remember. We pray. And we pledge: Never again.

Thank you. God bless you, and God bless America. Thank you very much. Thank you. (Applause.)

Top Highlights From Sunday’s Shows Discussing President Trump




Top Highlights From Sunday’s Shows

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus on NBC’s Meet The Press: “[President Trump] is fulfilling his promises and doing it at breakneck speed.”

CHIEF OF STAFF REINCE PRIEBUS: “First of all, if you look at the promises he made on immigration, you have border crossings down by 70%. You look at TPP, one of the first executive orders the President signed was getting out of TPP. You look at ethics, that was one of the bullet points. You had every employee of the West Wing signed an ethics pledge that said you’re not going to lobby for five years after you leave this place, and you’re never going to lobby for a foreign country. Look at Neil Gorsuch, first 100 days a Supreme Court justice is sworn in, first time since 1881. And if you just give me one minute, I won’t drone on. But, this idea about major legislation not being passed within the first 100 days, Barack Obama had a prebaked stimulus package that started in October … passed in February, it was pre-baked. George Bush didn’t get any major legislation until June. Clinton, August 10th. Bush 41, a year and a half later. Reagan, August 13th. Carter, 658 days after he took the office. Nixon, one year. Johnson, 225 days. Here is the deal, the President signed over 28 bills already. Health care may happen next week; it may not. We’re hopeful it will. As far as border security, you said the military. We have right now in the CR negotiating one of the biggest increases in military spending in decades. So, he is fulfilling his promises and doing it at breakneck speed.”


OMB Director Mick Mulvaney on Fox’s Fox News Sunday: “We’re talking about historic accomplishment by this administration in the first 100 days.”

DIRECTOR MICK MULVANEY: “What I think folks don’t realize is we’ve signed more legislation into law in the first 100 days than anybody in the last 50 years. We’ve put out more executive orders than any previous administration in the last 50 years and importantly, these are not creating new laws. Most of these are laws getting rid of other laws. Regulations getting rid of other regulations. We are reducing the role of government in your life during the first 100 days, and we are doing so on truly historic basis. Then you add Justice Gorsuch. No president has ever had a Supreme Court Justice confirmed in 100 days, and we’re talking about historic accomplishment by this administration in the first 100 days...”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on ABC’s This Week: “The President is honoring his promise to end the lawlessness at the border.”

ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS: “I think the President is honoring his promise to end the lawlessness at the border. The first thing we need to do is to stop the additional flow of illegal people into our country. Many of these are involved in criminal enterprises, hauling drugs, and that kind of thing. We need to end that and then we have to wrestle what to do about people who have been here a long time. But, I would say that the President is honoring his commitments to the American people, to fix this border and we’re going to stay at it. The Border Patrol is working very hard and so is the Department of Justice. We’re going to back them up.”

Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly on CNN’s State Of The Union: “We're looking for bad men and women and we're doing that very, very effectively.”


SECRETARY JOHN KELLY: “As I’ve said repeatedly, Dana, the illegal aliens that we're going after are not, if you will, simple, simply here illegally. We’re actually going after the very people that the sheriff references, in terms of criminals, that happen to be here also illegally. And would just highlight the fact that, you know, you can report crimes and not give your name. I mean, the 9-1-1 process is anonymous, if you want it to be. … I hear this a lot – that the reports are down and all that. I would just again tell the illegal immigrant community, if you are simply here illegally, we don't really have the time to go after you. We’re looking for bad men and women and we're doing that very, very effectively.”

President Trump Meeting with U.N. Security Council Ambassadors






President Trump Meeting with U.N. Security Council Ambassadors


THE PRESIDENT: This is a very, very important and powerful group of people, and it’s really wonderful to have you with us. And I have to say, welcome to the White House. It’s a privilege to have all of the ambassadors and their spouses. You know, they were going to leave out the spouses, and I said, you must bring your spouses. (Laughter.) You know, I heard there were a lot of very angry spouses -- (laughter) -- and this is their first time to the White House. So it’s a great honor to those of you that brought your wife or spouse.

As you know, the United States holds the presidency of the Security Council this month, and I’m glad that we are continuing the tradition of hosting the Council’s ambassadors in our nation’s capital. It’s our great honor, believe me.

I want to thank Ambassador Nikki Haley for her outstanding leadership, and for acting as my personal envoy on the Security Council. She’s doing a good job. Now, does everybody like Nikki? Because if you don’t -- (laughter) -- otherwise, she can easily be replaced. (Laughter.) No, we won’t do that, I promise. We won’t do that. She’s doing a fantastic job. And everyone, I see -- even as we took pictures before -- the friendship that you’ve developed, all of you together. That’s really a fantastic thing.

The mission of the United Nations and the U.N. Security Council is to maintain international peace and security. These are important aims and shared interests. But as we look around the world, it’s clear that there is much work for you to achieve. You’re going to be very busy people, I suspect, over these coming months and years.

Our nation faces serious and growing threats, and many of them stem from problems that have been unaddressed for far too long. In fact, the United Nations doesn’t like taking on certain problems. But I have a feeling that people in this room -- and I know for a fact that Nikki feels very, very strongly about taking on problems that really people steered away from.

I encourage the Security Council to come together and take action to counter all of these many threats. On Syria, the Council failed again this month to respond to Syria’s use of chemical weapons. A great disappointment; I was very disappointed by that.

The status quo in North Korea is also unacceptable, and the Council must be prepared to impose additional and stronger sanctions on North Korean nuclear and ballistic missile programs. This is a real threat to the world, whether we want to talk about it or not. North Korea is a big world problem, and it’s a problem we have to finally solve. People have put blindfolds on for decades, and now it’s time to solve the problem.

For the United Nations to play an effective role in solving these and other security challenges, big reforms will be required. In addition, we must also take a close look at the U.N. budget. Costs have been -- absolutely gone out of control. But I will say this: If we do a great job, I care much less about the budget, because you’re talking about peanuts compared to the important work you’re doing. You really are. You’re talking about the most important things ever. And I must say, I’m a budget person. You see the way I’m talking about NATO, the same thing, but if you do a great job at the United Nations, I feel much differently about it because we’re talking pennies compared to the kind of lives and money that you’ll be saving.

The United States, just one of 193 countries in the U.N., pays for 22 percent of the budget and almost 30 percent of the United Nations peacekeeping, which is unfair. We need the member states to come together to eliminate inefficiency and bloat, and to ensure that no one nation shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden militarily or financially. This is only fair to our taxpayers.

I look forward to a productive discussion about our shared role in keeping the peace, advancing reforms, and getting everyone to do their fair share.

I also want to say to you that I have long felt the United Nations is an underperformer but has tremendous potential. There are those people that think it’s an underperformer and will never perform. I think -- and I think especially I’m so happy with the job that Nikki is doing and our representatives -- but Nikki and the group -- and I see the relationship that she has already developed.

I think that the United Nations has tremendous potential -- tremendous potential -- far greater than what I would say any other candidate in the last 30 years would have even thought to say. I don’t think it’s lived up -- I know it hasn’t lived up to the potential. I mean, I see a day when there’s a conflict where the United Nations, you get together, and you solve the conflict. You just don’t see the United Nations, like, solving conflicts. I think that’s going to start happening now. I can see it. And the United Nations will get together and solve conflicts. It won’t be two countries, it will be the United Nations mediating or arbitrating with those countries.

So I see fantastic potential and fantastic things ahead for the United Nations. And I have to say, it’s a tremendous honor to know you and to meet you. And Nikki has given me a little briefing on each and every one of you, and I must tell you -- I will tell you, you know, I’m a very blunt person, if she didn’t like I would tell you right now -- (laughter) -- but she gets along with everybody and respects everybody in this room.

I’ll end by saying that -- unless you would rather not do it -- so we have an office in the White House, you may have heard of it, called the Oval Office. So what we'll do is we'll go down as a group and we'll take some pictures in the Oval Office. I know you’ve never seen it. Nobody seems to get to see the Oval Office very much, but we’re going to show you the Oval Office. So we’ll go down, take some pictures of the Oval Office, and we’ll have a good luncheon, and we’ll talk about the United Nations and we’ll talk about peace.

Thank you all very much for being here. It’s a great honor, and I’m glad you brought your spouses. Thank you. (Applause.)
