Trump comments on US-China tensions, upcoming Ohio rally


THE PRESIDENT ADDRESSING THAT AND A LOT MORE WITH REPORTERS MOMENTS AGO. LISTEN.>>Reporter: WHY THE TARIFFS NOW? ABOUT TO NOSEDIVE –>>President Trump: I’M NOT CONCERNED. I EXPECTED THAT A LITTLE BIT BECAUSE PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND QUITE YET ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED. WE HAVE TAXED CHINA ON $300 BILLION WORTH OF GOODS AND PRODUCTS BEING SOLD INTO OUR COUNTRY. CHINA EATS IT BECAUSE I HAVE TO PAY UP BECAUSE WHAT THEY DO IS THEY DEVALUE THEIR CURRENCY AND THEY PUSH MONEY OUT. OUR PEOPLE HAVEN’T PAID, AS YOU KNOW, WE ARE ALSO CHARGING THEM 25% ON $250 BILLION. WE ARE TAKING IN MANY BILLIONS OF DOLLARS. THERE’S BEEN ABSENTLY NO INFLATION AND FRANKLY IT HASN’T CAUSED OUR CONSUMER ANYTHING. IT COSTS CHINA. WHAT IS HAPPENED IS A LOT OF COMPANIES ARE MOVING OUT OF CHINA SO THEY CAN AVOID — CHINA HAS HAD A ROUGH — THIS IS THEIR WORST YEAR IN 27 YEARS, ACCORDING TO YESTERDAY’S “WALL STREET JOURNAL.” I DON’T WANT THAT BUT WHEN MY PEOPLE CAME HOME, THEY SAID WE ARE TALKING. WE HAVE ANOTHER MEETING IN EARLY SEPTEMBER. I SAID THAT’S FINE. BUT IN THE MEANTIME, UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THERE IS A DEAL, WE’LL BE TEXTING THEM. AND WE ARE GETTING VERY GOOD NUMBERS FROM THE BORDER. 21,000 SOLDIERS SUPPLIED BY MEXICO AND I WANT TO THANK MEXICO. THEY ARE DOING A GREAT JOB. THAT NUMBERS ARE WAY DOWN AT THE BORDER.>>Reporter: NORTH KOREA APPARENTLY LAUNCHED THEIR THIRD MISSILE IN A WEEK. IS KIM TESTING YOU?>>President Trump: IS VERY MUCH UNDER CONTROL.>>Reporter: WE START NEGOTIATIONS AGAIN?>>Reporter: [INDISTINCT]>>President Trump: LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION. RIGHT, WRITE, RIGHT, SURE. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY WHEN CHINA FOR THE LAST 20 YEARS HAS BEEN TAKING HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OUT OF OUR COUNTRY AND WE HAD A PRESIDENT THAT WOULD NEVER DO ANYTHING, NUMBER OF PRESIDENTS THAT WOULD NEVER DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY? FOR MANY YEARS, CHINA HAS BEEN TAKING MONEY OUT BY THE HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS A YEAR. WE HAVE REBUILT CHINA. NOW IT’S TIME THAT WE CHANGE THE GROUND. IF THEY DON’T WANT TO TRADE WITH US ANYMORE, THAT WOULD BE FINE WITH ME. IT WOULD SAVE A LOT OF MONEY.>>Reporter: DO YOU BELIEVE THAT XI IS SLOW WALKING THIS?>>President Trump: NO, I DON’T KNOW. I THINK PRESIDENT XI, SOMEONE I LIKE A LOT, I THINK HE WANTS TO MAKE A DEAL. FRANKLY HE’S NOT GOING FAST ENOUGH. HE SAID HE WAS GOING TO BE BUYING FROM OUR FARMERS. HE DIDN’T DO THAT. HE SAID HE WAS GOING TO STOP FENTANYL FROM COMING INTO OUR COUNTRY. IT’S ALL COMING OUT OF CHINA. HE DIDN’T DO THAT. WE’RE LOSING THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE TO FENTANYL. THIS WAS TIME AND VERY IMPORTANTLY, YOU KNOW THIS MORE THAN ANYBODY. YOU’VE BEEN COVERING IT A LONG TIME. FOR MANY YEARS, CHINA HAS BEEN TAKING OUT HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS A YEAR AND REBUILDING CHINA. IT’S TIME THAT WE REBUILT OUR COUNTRY.>>Reporter: DO YOU STILL TRUST HIM? DO YOU STILL TRUST XI?>>President Trump: THE ONE THING I HAVE TO SAY AND YOU HAVE TO SAY THIS, WHAT CHINA IS DOING IS THEY ARE DEVALUING THEIR CURRENCY AND THEY ARE PUMPING MONEY OUT LIKE THEY’VE NEVER DONE BEFORE, AND THEY ARE PAYING FOR THESE TARIFFS. WE ARE NOT.>>Reporter: DO YOU STILL TRUST PRESIDENT XI?>>Reporter: [INDISTINCT]>>President Trump: SOMETHING IS PROBABLY HAPPENING WITH HONG KONG, BECAUSE WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT’S GOING ON, THEY’VE HAD RIOTS FOR LONG PERIOD TIME. I DON’T KNOW WHAT CHINA’S ATTITUDE IS. SOMEBODY SAID THAT AT SOME POINT THEY’RE GOING TO WANT TO STOP THAT. THAT’S BETWEEN HONG KONG AND THAT’S BETWEEN CHINA BECAUSE HONG KONG IS A PART OF CHINA. THEY WILL HAVE TO DO WITHOUT THEMSELVES. THEY DON’T NEED ADVICE.>>Reporter: TO THE U.S. GOVERNMENT — MR. PRESIDENT, SIR.>>Reporter: THE DATE OF SEPTEMBER 1 ON THE TARIFFS.>>President Trump: NO, NO, SEPTEMBER 1. THE REASON IS IT TAKES A LONG TIME FOR THE SHIPS TO COME OVER AND IT’S A PERIOD OF TIME SO I’M GIVING THEM A 4-WEEK PERIOD OF TIME BEFORE THE TARIFFS GONE BUT WE ARE TAKING TARIFFS ON 10% ON OVER 300000000025% ON 250 BILLION. IT’S BEEN PROVEN THAT OUR PEOPLE ARE NOT PAYING FOR THOSE TARIFFS.>>Reporter: DO YOU STILL TRUST PRESIDENT XI?>>President Trump: GO AHEAD.>>Reporter: [INDISTINCT QUESTION]>>President Trump: SHORT-RANGE MISSILES, WE NEVER MADE AN AGREEMENT ON THAT. I HAVE NO PROBLEM. WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. THESE ARE SHORT-RANGE MISSILES. THEY ARE VERY STANDARD.>>Reporter: WILL YOU CONTINUE NEGOTIATING WITH THEM, SIR?>>President Trump: GO AHEAD. GO AHEAD.>>Reporter: [INDISTINCT QUESTION]>>President Trump: CONGRESSMAN RATCLIFF IS AN OUTSTANDING MAN. HIGHLY RESPECTED BY EVERYBODY THAT KNOWS HIM.>>Reporter: [INDISTINCT QUESTION]>>President Trump: WE HAVE NOT CHANGED ON HUAWEI. WE CAN DO BUSINESS ON NONSECURITY THINGS WITH HUAWEI. ANYTHING HAVING TO DO WITH NATIONAL SECURITY, WE ARE NOT DEALING WITH HUAWEI.>>Reporter: AT YOUR RALLY TONIGHT, SIR.>>Reporter: [INDISTINCT QUESTION]>>President Trump: I HAVEN’T ACTUALLY HEARD THAT. I KNOW THERE’S A LOT OF THINGS GOING ON THAT SAY A PIECE OF IT BUT I DON’T KNOW. I HAVEN’T SPOKEN TO THEM ABOUT THAT. I WOULD FRANKLY BE SURPRISED BECAUSE WHAT JAMES COMEY DID WAS ILLEGAL, SO I WOULD BE SURPRISED BUT I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THAT.>>Reporter: IN CINCINNATI AT YOUR RALLY TONIGHT, ARE YOU PREPARED TO TELL YOUR SUPPORTERS TO STOP IF THEY BEGIN CHANTING SOMETHING PROBLEMATIC?>>President Trump: I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN. I CAN TELL YOU I’M GOING TO CINCINNATI. THE ARENA IS A VERY LARGE ONE, AND WE’VE SOLD OUT AND WE CAN SELL IT OUT PROBABLY TEN TIMES FROM WHAT I HEAR. THE APPLICATIONS FOR SEATS, AS YOU KNOW, NEVER HAD AN EMPTY SEAT. THE APPLICATIONS ARE VERY BIG. I HAVE NO IDEA. WE HAVE A GREAT GROUP OF PEOPLE. THEY LOVE OUR COUNTRY. THEY LOVE THE JOB WE ARE DOING. WHEN THEY SEE THE KIND OF PEOPLE THAT WANT TO REPRESENT US FROM THE LAST TWO NIGHTS, THAT’S NOT WHAT THEY WANT. I DON’T KNOW. I CAN’T TELL YOU WHETHER OR NOT THEY’RE GOING TO DO THAT CHANT. IF THEY DO THE CHANT, WE’LL HAVE TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS.>>Reporter: WE STOP THEM?>>President Trump: I DON’T KNOW THAT YOU CAN STOP PEOPLE. I DON’T KNOW THAT YOU CAN. WE WILL SEE WE CAN DO. I WOULD PREFER THEY DON’T BUT IF THEY DO IT, WE’LL HAVE TO MAKE A DECISION THEN.>>Reporter: DO YOU HAVE A MESSAGE FOR THEM NOW BEFORE THEY GO IN?>>President Trump: I DO HAVE A MESSAGE. MY MESSAGE FOR THE PEOPLE I’M GOING TO. WE HAVE OVER 100,000 APPLICATIONS FOR WHATEVER THE SIZE OF THE — I THINK IT’S A 14,000 SEAT ARENA. WE ARE WAY OVER 100. I THINK 122,000 APPLICATIONS FOR THOSE SEATS. DO YOU KNOW WHAT MY MESSAGES? I LOVE THEM. BUT I THINK THEY LOVE ME. I ACTUALLY THINK THEY LOVE ME.>>Reporter: SIR, ON BIN LADEN, SIR.>>Reporter: [INDISTINCT QUESTION]>>President Trump: HAVE THEY ACCEPTED THE OFFER OR NOT? THAT IS UP TO PRIME MINISTER MODI. I THINK THEY ARE FANTASTIC PEOPLE. AND KHAN AND MODI. IF THEY WANTED SOME ONE TO HELP THEM AND I SPOKE WITH INDIA TO ABOUT IT. IT’S BEEN GOING ON, THAT BATTLE, FOR A LONG TIME. IF I CAN, IF THEY WANTED ME TO, I WOULD CERTAINLY INTERVENE, YEAH.>>Reporter: WAS THE U.S. GOVERNMENT INVOLVED WITH THE DEATH OF HAZMA BIN LADEN?>>President Trump: I CAN’T COMMENT ABOUT THAT BUT HE WAS VERY THREATENING TO OUR COUNTRY. HE WAS SAYING BAD TINGS ON OUR COUNTRY. I WILL LET YOU MAKE YOUR OWN COMMENT ABOUT IT. I DON’T COMMENT. I WILL SAY HAMZA BIN LADEN WAS VERY THREATENING TO OUR COUNTRY, AND YOU CAN’T DO THAT. AS FAR AS ANYTHING BEYOND THAT, I HAVE NO COMMENT.>>Reporter: MR. PRESIDENT , ROBERT MUELLER SAID LAST WEEK — [INAUDIBLE]>>President Trump: YOU DON’T REALLY BELIEVE THAT, DO YOU? I SPOKE WITH PRESIDENT PUTIN OF RUSSIA YESTERDAY. THEY ARE HAVING MASSIVE FIRES IN THEIR FORESTS. THEY HAVE TREMENDOUS — I’VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT. IT’S VERY BIG. I JUST OFFERED OUR ASSISTANCE BECAUSE WE ARE VERY GOOD AT PUTTING OUT FOREST FIRES FRANKLY. IF THEY SHOULD NEED IT, I OFFERED OUR ASSISTANCE. WE HAD A GOOD TALK, A SHORT TALK BUT A GOOD TALK AND I THINK HE APPRECIATED IT. WE WOULD BE ABLE TO HELP THEM. THESE ARE MASSIVE FIRES LIKE I HAVEN’T SEEN. THAT WAS THE PRIMARY IMPORTANCE OF THE CONVERSATION. I THINK THEY VERY MUCH APPRECIATED IT.>>Reporter: ON THE FED, SIR.>>Reporter: RUSSIA INTERFERING IN THE ELECTIONS…>>President Trump: I WATCHED MUELLER. I’M NOT SURE MUELLER KNOWS WHAT’S GOING ON. HE SAID NO COLLUSION WITH US, NO COLLUSION. ULTIMATELY NO OBSTRUCTION BECAUSE IT LED TO NO OBSTRUCTION BY A VERY SMART GROUP OF PEOPLE, INCLUDING OUR ATTORNEY GENERAL. NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION. AS FAR AS MUELLER’S PERFORMANCE, YOU WOULD HAVE TO SAY IT WAS NAVY NOT SO GOOD — MAYBE NOT SO NAVY NOT SO GOOD — MAYBE NOT SG NAVY NOT SO GOOD — MAYBE NOT SO NAVY NOT SO GOOD — MAYBE NOT S.>>Reporter: WHY WASN’T A QUARTER GRADE CUT GOOD ENOUGH?>>President Trump: OUR COUNTRY IS DOING VERY WELL. WE ARE SETTING RECORDS IN EVERY WAY. INCLUDING EMPLOYMENT, UNEMPLOYMENT AND WE HAVE NO MORE PEOPLE WORKING IN THE UNITED STATES THAN EVER BEFORE. THE STOCK MARKET, IT WILL TAKE A LITTLE HIT BUT IT WILL BE PHENOMENAL BECAUSE ULTIMATELY IT WILL BE MUCH BETTER BECAUSE OF WHAT I’M DOING. SOMEBODY SHOULD HAVE DONE THIS WITH CHINA LONG TIME AGO. IF THEY DECIDED NOT TO DO IT. THEY MADE A BIG MISTAKE. BUT I WILL SAY THIS. THERE’S NEVER BEEN A TIME IN HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY LIKE WE HAVE RIGHT NOW. THE HIGHEST NUMBER OF PEOPLE EMPLOYED. BEST EMPLOYMENT NUMBERS FOR AFRICAN-AMERICANS, HISPANICS, WOMEN, FOR EVERYBODY. THE BEST NUMBERS WE’VE EVER HAD. OUR MILITARY IS BEING REBUILT AND IS ALMOST FULLY REBUILT. IT’S GOING TO BE AT A LEVEL IN A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, STRONGER AND BETTER THAN EVER BEFORE WITH NEW AIRCRAFT, NEW MISSILES, NEW EVERYTHING. HOPEFULLY WE DON’T HAVE TO USE IT.>>Reporter: WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THE DEMOCRATIC DEBATE LAST NIGHT? THE CHARGE FROM CONGRESSWOMAN GABBARD THAT YOU ARE ASSISTING AL QAEDA.>>President Trump: NOBODY KNOWS WHAT SHE MEANT BY THAT. I THINK EVEN YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T LIKE THAT STATEMENT, JOHN. IF YOU REMEMBER A SHORT WHILE AGO, I DEFEATED ISIS. WE HAVE 100% OF THE CALIPHATE. YOU’RE ALWAYS GOING TO HAVE SOMEBODY AROUND. RIGHT NOW WE HAVE CAPTURED OVER 10,000. WE HAVE 2,500 ISIS FIGHTERS THAT WE WANT EUROPE TO TAKE BECAUSE THEY WERE GOING BACK INTO EUROPE. FRANCE, GERMANY, VARIOUS PLACES. WE HAVE RIGHT NOW 2,500 ISIS THAT WE CAPTURED. WE HAVE CAPTURED 100% OF THE CALIPHATE. WE’VE DONE A BIG JOB ON AL QAEDA AND EVERYBODY ELSE. FOR HER TO MAKE THAT STATEMENT IS RIDICULOUS FRANKLY.>>Reporter: CAN YOU STILL NEGOTIATE WITH KIM JONG UN?>>President Trump: FOR HER TO MAKE THAT STATEMENT IS SO RIDICULOUS. SHE HAS TAKEN A LOT OF HEAT ON IT BECAUSE NOBODY HAS DONE MORE AGAINST THAT WAR THAN I HAVE. WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF ISIS FIGHTERS THAT WE WANT EUROPE TO TAKE, AND LET’S SEE IF THEY TAKE THEM. IF THEY DON’T TAKE THEM, WE’LL PROBABLY HAVE TO RELEASE THEM TO EUROPE.>>Reporter: AND YOU STILL NEGOTIATE, SIR. CAN YOU STILL NEGOTIATE WITH KIM AFTER HE HAS DONE THIS WEEK? CAN YOU STILL NEGOTIATE WITH KIM AFTER WHAT HE’S DONE NOW?>>President Trump: YES, THESE ARE SHORT-RANGE MISSILES. WE NEVER DISCUSSED THAT. WE DISCUSSED NUCLEAR. WE TALKED WHAT IS NUCLEAR. THOSE ARE SHORT-RANGE MISSILES. SURE. A LOT OF OTHER COUNTRIES TEST THE KIND OF MISSILE.>>Reporter: DO YOU STILL TRUST PRESIDENT XI?>>10%, NOT 25. HE SAID A QUARTER POINT WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH.>>President Trump: EVERYONE SAYS THAT SO TOUGH NOW YOU’RE SAYING I SHOULD’VE DONE MORE. I DID MORE THAN ANYBODY THOUGHT WITH THE FIRST 250 BILLION. THE 10% IS FOR A SHORT TERM PERIOD, AND THEN I CAN ALWAYS DO MUCH MORE OR I CAN DO LESS DEPENDING ON WHAT HAPPENS WITH RESPECT TO A DEAL. I’M VERY HAPPY THE WAY IT IS RIGHT NOW. MY PEOPLE CAME BACK. THEY ARE GOING TO MEET AGAIN IN SEPTEMBER. I SAID LOOK, IF YOU MEET, THAT’S GREAT BUT IN THE MEANTIME, WE’RE GOING TO PAY — THEY ARE GOING TO PAY A TARIFF AND IT WILL BE A VERY SUBSTANTIAL TERROR. IF YOU REMEMBER WHEN I DO 25%, I DID IT IN STAGES. THIS CAN ALSO BE LIFTED ULTIMATELY IN STAGES OR CAN BE TAKEN OFF. BUT IT CAN BE LIFTED IN STAGES. SO WE ARE STARTING AT 10% AND IT CAN BE LIFTED UP TO WELL BEYOND 25%. WE ARE NOT LOOKING TO DO THAT NECESSARILY. THIS WOULD BE DONE IN STAGES. I PUT ON 10%, 10% ON 300, APPROXIMATELY 300 BILLION. WE ALREADY HAVE A 25% TARIFF ON THE FIRST 250 BILLION. THE 10% FOLLOWS THE 250 BILLION AT 25%.>>Reporter: SPEAKER PELOSI.>>Reporter: ARE YOU CONSIDERING A BLOCKADE OF C’S [INDISTINCT] THE AMOUNT OF FOREIGN INVOLVEMENT WITH CHINA AND IRAN.>>President Trump: YES, I AM.>>Reporter: SPEAKER PELOSI, SIR.>>Reporter: THE MUELLER HEARING. … THEY WANT TO LAUNCH A HOUSE INQUIRY.>>Reporter: NO ONE HAS MENTIONED THIS QUESTION TO ME IN SO LONG. UNTIL LAST NIGHT AT THE VERY END, WASN’T MENTIONED IN THE DEBATES. PEOPLE AREN’T EVEN THINKING. IT’S A HOAX. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THAT. YOU KNOW IT’S A HOAX, RIGHT? NOBODY HAS MENTIONED IT TO ME. ONE THING I WILL SAY THAT YOU HAVEN’T COVERED, TWO DAYS AGO A HIGHLY RESPECTED GEORGE IN THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK IN MANHATTAN CAME OUT WITH A DECISION ON THE WHOLE RUSSIA HOAX AND HE SAID EXACTLY THAT. IT’S A HOAX. YOU WANT TO READ THE DECISION. THIS IS A DECISION BY A JUDGE WHO IS HIGHLY RESPECTED WHO WAS APPOINTED BY BILL CLINTON WHEN HE WAS PRESIDENT, AND HE CAME OUT AND HE SAID IT’S A HOAX. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT IT IS. THIS WAS THE CASE BROUGHT BY THE DEMOCRATS AGAINST ME, NOBODY WANTS TO TALK ABOUT IT. YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE IT’S FAKE NEWS.>>Reporter: YOUR SON-IN-LAW JARED KUSHNER.>>Reporter: THE INS READING.>>President Trump: WE DIDN’T DISCUSS THE INF. WE DISCUSSED THE FOREST FIRES IN SIBERIA AND OTHER PARTS OF RUSSIA. I SAID WE HAVE THE GREATEST EQUIPMENT. IF WE CAN HELP US PROMOTE — IF WE CAN HELP YOU, LET US KNOW. I SAID IF WE CAN HELP YOU.>>Reporter: BUT WE ARE PULLING OUT OF THE TREATY TOMORROW.>>President Trump: WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. BY THE WAY, I WILL SAY RUSSIA WOULD LIKE TO DO SOMETHING ON A NUCLEAR TREATY. THAT’S OKAY WITH ME. THEY WOULD LIKE TO DO SOMETHING, AND SO WOULD I.>>Reporter: [INDISTINCT QUESTION] YOUR RESPONSE TO ELIZABETH WARREN’S COMMENTS.>>President Trump: I HAVE WATCHED ELIZABETH WARREN. SOMETIMES REFERRED TO AS POCAHONTAS WITH HER PHONY ANCESTRY SHE DIDN’T HAVE. I WATCHED HER AND TO ME SHE DOESN’T HAVE CREDIBILITY. IT’S POSSIBLE I WILL HAVE TO RUN AGAINST HER. EVERYTHING SHE DID WAS A FRAUD. SHE GOT INTO COLLEGES. SHE GOT TEACHING JOBS. SHE SAID SHE WAS OF INDIAN HERITAGE. IT TURNED OUT TO BE A LIE. ELIZABETH WARREN REALLY HAS A BIG LACK OF CREDIBILITY.>>Reporter: [INDISTINCT QUESTION]>>President Trump: I DIDN’T REALLY LOOK. I THINK THAT KAMALA DIDN’T DO WELL LAST NIGHT. I THINK THAT BIDEN DID OKAY. HE CAME THROUGH. HE CAME LIMPING THROUGH, AS THEY SAY ABOUT SLEEPY. HE LIMPED RIGHT THROUGH IT. HE GOT THROUGH IT. I THINK HE WAS OKAY. I THINK KAMALA HAD A BAD NIGHT LAST NIGHT, I WOULD SAY. IT’S REALLY BOILING DOWN TO FOUR OR FIVE OF THEM, LET’S FACE IT. I DON’T SEE ANYBODY COMING FROM –>>Reporter: DO YOU HAVE A MESSAGE ON THIS ANNIVERSARY.>>President Trump: I HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT FOR POLAND. AS YOU KNOW, THE PEOPLE OF POLAND LIKE ME AND I LIKE THEM AND I’M GOING TO BE GOING TO POLAND FAIRLY SOON AND I KNOW THEY ARE BUILDING AN INSTALLATION AND THEY’RE PUTTING IT ALL THE MONEY, 100% OF THE MONEY. THEY ARE BUILDING SOMETHING VERY NICE FOR THE UNITED STATES TO HAVE.>>Reporter: ON NANCY PELOSI. HOUSE SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI, I DON’T KNOW IF YOU SAW, SHE DESCRIBED JARED KUSHNER AS A KIND OF BALTIMORE SLUMLORD. BECAUSE HE OWNS PROPERTY. DID YOUR SON-IN-LAW BEAR ANY RESPONSIBILITY?>>President Trump: THE RESPONSE BILL THEY ARE THE PEOPLE WHO RUN BALTIMORE FOR SO MANY YEARS. OBVIOUSLY HEADED UP BY ELIJAH CUMMINGS. THEY’VE RUN BALTIMORE INTO THE GROUND. WE HAVE GIVEN BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO BALTIMORE. THE PEOPLE OF BALTIMORE APPRECIATE WHAT I’VE DONE FOR THEM BY BRINGING THIS UP. IT’S THE NUMBER ONE CITY PROPORTIONATELY IN THE UNITED STATES ON CRIME. I SAW A STATISTIC THAT IT’S WORSE THAN HONDURAS. I THINK THE PEOPLE OF BALTIMORE, THEY REALLY APPRECIATE WHAT I’M DOING. THE MONEY WAS STOLEN OR MISSPENT OR WASTED. A LOT OF THINGS HAPPENED, A LOT OF BAD THINGS. THE GOVERNMENT FOR MANY YEARS HAS BEEN VERY GOOD BALTIMORE. WE HAVE TO HELP THE PEOPLE, ELIJAH CUMMINGS HAS NOT HELPED THE PEOPLE. MAYBE AT SOME POINT WE WILL GET TOGETHER AND WE WILL GET IT STRAIGHTENED OUT. WHAT HAPPENED IN BALTIMORE IS DISGRACEFUL AND IT’S NOT ONLY

  1. PresTrump's in his element. His answers to all unrehearsed questions are as cogent and succinct to all even to idiots like me.
    More power to him.

  2. Economics 101 Who has the piggy bank. Answer we do. Who makes the rules. yep you got it we do. Why can't Democrats git it.

  3. i love the magnificent oak in the backround. it represents him and what this country is about. not the trashed streets of baltimore where i was born.

  4. Iโ€™m waiting for Trump to say, thatโ€™s a stupid question; why would you ask a stupid question you fake news!

  5. I love this man๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  6. Usually a country could protect its internal market through imposing a higher duty to be paid on a particular class of imports. Such import tariffs are to protect their own particular production, i.e. in certain selected areas.
    Trump's higher tariffs are in some areas to protect domestic production but for example with China it is not.
    Can anyone explain what's the point with the tariffs on Chineese goods that only will make them more costly to buy for the average American consumer?

  7. In 2012, the day Obama was Sworn In for his Second Term, 100% of America could reasonably assume their choice for 2016 would be a Bush, or a Clinton. President Trump has exposed and defeated that insidious Nepotism, and now we have normal people who actually believe they can be President. Our current President saved our Meritocracy.

  8. Please take Kilmeade off THE FIVE.??? I stopped watching in the morning, because of Brian.
    I am a Constitutional Conservative. I cant stand Kilmeade and his devotion to Israel. AMERICA FIRST!!!!!

  9. I don't care what anyone says, Trump has some massive balls. He can certainly hold his own and is great under pressure. And he says exactly what he thinks/wants. These reporters make themselves look like idiots. He's done a lot of good for our country and they ignore it all. They go out of their way to make him look bad. Then they wonder why the public distrust the media.

  10. Why is there always a fire truck outside the Whitehouse? Every single video. And the helicopter is always running.

  11. Have to laugh at the reporter desperately asking ……and asking….and asking "Do you still trust President Xi?"
    Ask the people in Hong Kong,lady.

  12. Mr.Trump is a very CLEVER man. May be he is GENIUS.
    You see the interview, a lot of news-guys ask all the different questions, critical questions, pressure questions, and he answer them PERFECTly, No FLAW.
    Not a lot of people can do that.
    And not a lot of people with the age 72(?) can answer that PERFECTly.

  13. Trump will end up losing in Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia and Florida in 2020!๐Ÿ‘

  14. The only GUY in the world to stand-up to China's bullying. Eventually China will respect the position of Strength Trump comes from.

  15. Get with President Trump.
    He is WORKING properly for The USA.

    Previous POTUS have lost the WILL to fight personally against Unrighteous causes of Criminal Governments & NGO's.

    The USA people have been deceived into agreeing to agreements, which secretly remove the POWER of self determination & WEALTH from the Actual People of the USA by their Congress, which they have VOTED into office to Represent them.
    Don't get fooled again.

    Give President Trump a Chance.

    Communist China has taken OUR rights in exchange for cheap goods and cheap labor.

    The Snakes wear the Sheep's WOOL Clothing now.

  16. Our West๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ message to POTUS Don J Trump & 17 We Love and admire your dedication to โ€˜We The People.โ€™ Donโ€™t underestimate your Following/ support from
    non-Americans
    A Patriot Salute from the True North
    Alberta Rocky Mountains

  17. Heh… are you going the stop the crowd from chanting something problematic. Cut me some slack…. EVERYTHING is problematic to the left. No, he isnt. Not one moment will be spent buying into the lefts hysterical babbling nonsense. Get over it.
    Do you trust China??? Are you kidding? In God we trust. All others will pay cash. Its classic. Dont be stupid.

  18. The best president in the USA history. I just love this man and I will die for this country and his love for this country.

  19. Be ready for severe economic and social turmoils with these improper strategies. the turmoils which America havenโ€™t seen before

  20. Trump has balls. Previous media submissive presidents ball-less. Media steamed they get called out for being fake and getting called out on it. What surprises me these dumb asses are doing the same stuff that got Trump elected in the first place. They underestimate us. Americans can see through it all. God bless America!!!

  21. to his credit – trump was opining about china 20 – 10 – 5 years ago
    and now here he is doing exactly what he said he was planning to do
    when a candidate – we do need him to win in 2020 – and we need another
    president like him for 8 years after – his actions will prove to be correct over a longer
    time frame than his presidency will allow – we dodged a bullet on this one

  22. The press and media hate him but canโ€™t get enough of him. Falling over themselves clamoring for a piece. Heโ€™s got them eating out of his hands promoting his message.

  23. Remember when TRUMP made a very strong WARNING in front of the world leaders at the UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY…when he said…"that if ROCKET MAN will not STOP launching NUCLEAR MISSILES test over the air space of Japan and Guam…I have no choice but to OBLITERATE the nation of NORTH KOREA from the face of the earth"? Remember how the DICTATORSHIP of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA APPARATUS together with their partners in crime from the DEMOCRATS were in a FRENZY calling TRUMP a WAR MONGER and that he will start WORLD WAR III? Did TRUMP strong WARNING cause WORLD WAR III? What it cause is 2 summit meetings with KIM and TRUMP made HISTORY by being the first US President to set foot in NORTH KOREA. Fast forward…now as USUAL…the DICTATORSHIP of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA APPARATUS were in FRENZY once again calling TRUMP as SOFT on KIM and TOUGH on CUMMING(the infamous African-American congressman)…because NORTH
    KOREA is launching MISSILES in their own territory. The DICTATORSHIP of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA APPARATUS wants to INFLUENCED the decision making and thinking process of TRUMP like what they always do to traditional POLITICIANS who were AFRAID of them. But TRUMP being TRUMP did not OBEY the COMMAND of the DICTATORSHIP of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA APPARATUS…because he knew that they want him to fail…actually they want to get RID of TRUMP by all means necessary. Instead…TRUMP acted prudently by saying that what NORTH KOREA is doing is just NORMAL and LEGAL since they are testing their MISSILES in their own territory and not over the air space of Japan and Guam which if they did…will be a violation of INTERNATIONAL LAW…and he will not tolerate that. TRUMP is the SMARTEST President alive on earth today…because he never follow what the DICTATORSHIP of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA APPARATUS wants. He is not AFRAID of them. In fact…he even EXPOSED their modus operandi to ALTER and INDOCTRINATE the MINDS of the people with the use of their most potent and lethal weapons…the FREEDOM of the PRESS…by simply calling them…"FAKE NEWS". Yes…TRUMP knew that it is not costing the US GOVERNMENT a single centavo to just observe what NORTH KOREA is doing…so long as they don't threaten the LIVES of AMERICANS. At the same time…the US GOVERNMENT may even make BILLIONS of DOLLARS from what NORTH KOREA is doing. Simply because…the two RICHEST country in ASIA…JAPAN and SOUTH KOREA may BUY more powerful and more lethal but very expensive MISSILES made in the USA to DETER the NORTH KOREANS from acting CRAZY. Come on. Do you think that the filthy rich nations like SOUTH KOREA and JAPAN will BUY expensive military ARMS from Communist RUSSIA? Yes…by acting prudently and by not listening to the provocations of the DICTATORSHIP of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA APPARATUS…TRUMP is actually making the world a safer place to live and at the same time…MAKING AMERICA RICH and GREAT AGAIN. Just like the good old days when GEN. EISENHOWER rules the world. Simply put…let the COLD WAR begin again…because it's the only way to STOP NUCLEAR WAR…and to STOP the REAL OWNERS of the DICTATORSHIP of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA APPARATUS from RULING the world and ENSLAVING humanity.
    The COLD WAR being a REAL THREAT to mankind will put the power back to the people to decide on what to do to protect mankind. At the same time…it will curtail the power of the DICTATORSHIP of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA APPARATUS from making FALSE THREAT of how the world will END…like their absurd but money making idea of CLIMATE CHANGE and GLOBAL WARMING. Yes…the DICTATORSHIP of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA APPARATUS were offering themselves as an alternative to god because they were the only entity that can STOP the end of the world. My GOD…I would TRUST more the RUSSIANS and the AMERICANS who possess some of the most POWERFUL and LETHAL THERMO NUCLEAR ARSENALS on earth to DICTATE how the world will END than the very EVIL and DIABOLICAL pseudo defenders of mankind…the DICTATORSHIP of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA APPARATUS.

  24. it's about time to stop every country around the world of taking America for a free ride thank you, President Donald J Trump,

  25. five mns of that trump thing is five mns in hell–who the fuk does think he is king or something ,whatta a fukin jerk off-worst pres in the history of this otherwise great nation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! really hope it ends sooner rather than later.

  26. Has any other president ever said they love their supporters? If John "all you need is love" Lennon were still alive, he'd be so conflicted over Trump.. hmm, well I think I'm a Democrat and against Trump's seemingly anti human stance on Mexican illegal immigrants but I'm very much for his love of his supporters.. soooooo conflicted…

  27. President Trump is always so respectful of other people when talking about them; And positive about them and hopeful for them.

  28. If we are so good at putting out forest fires to the extent we want to help Russia with theirs: why have we left our own to burn for years in states like CA?

  29. Trump, Your people don't want to talk about anything because they think that it will cost them money!, have a nice day pal,,,

  30. President Trump makes remark? Remarkable. …BREAKING NEWS, ALIENS TAKE AREA 51 HOSTAGE. WE'RE AT WAR WITH MARS. (for everyone flying an F-18, or better please subscribe for further updates…..of Malware. Will smith…Looking at ya.

  31. need to be jail time for leader of china for bring the drug over here,they buy time so +d.m.c can give them a favor and contin… stolen tax payer money

  32. I think our duly elected president Donald John Trump is actually right. Personally I do love him and it brings tears of joy to my eyes many times when he speaks.

  33. please sir governor America again for 2020 please. so that there shall be more peace in the world. amen ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

  34. Elizabeth Warren have no credibility ? But surely Donald Trump that lies all the time has ๐Ÿ˜€ What a joke.

  35. No doubt America is going down and a lot of ignorant people are following. I dont know what vision they have but i'm sure their situation did not improve an inch under Trump but they like he talk dirty. Tsk. I really feel sorry for you.

  36. Because of this jerk,custom and border patrol are now seizing all packages comming from china,2 days ago I received 2 packages that said :taken and distroyed by customs and border patrol,now a week earlier maybe 2 weeks,I received my stuff from china,Oh how I hate this creep,he is going to make it where the poor want be able to by food.๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ’ฉ

  37. You tell em ' Trump and Fox news if you are not white ……we hate you !!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜€

  38. Eventually, China cannot live without USA. Period. China's biggest market is the US consumer market. No country matches the US market.
    President Trump is the only President has guts and daring and stand against this evil monster, China which is preparing itself to take the whole world.
    China has been making significant infrastructure investments in Africa, eying the market there 10 yrs from now.
    Unfair trade practices have to be stopped.
    We, the US consumer is spoiled by consuming cheap goods from China. Worrying about laptop and smart phone price rise?? Come on, we
    can live without them. This is not the bread and butter. If US wants to win in this trade war, Americans have to suffer a bit, give up our
    luxuries for some time and China will be coming kneeling down. So, be patient and be patriotic guys. USA USA USA !!!!

  39. Trump is a good president,The biggest enemy of Americans is not China but Wall Street. The industry in reconstruction is a long and painful process,But if Americans continue to rely on Wall Street finance, they will not be able to beat China,Because you don't realize that the days when Americans get nothing for nothing are over.

  40. hahah "Sometimes referred to as Pocahontas." lol I died. I love him. You know I really hated him when he was just a tv personality, but as the President he Rocks! This country is the envy of the world again and it's because of him.

  41. This is No Way to Win a Trade War with China. Beijing is preparing its people for hardship and explaining the necessity of a protracted national struggle against Washington. The Trump administration was right to confront Chinaโ€™s systematic economic predation, but its chosen approach has little chance of meaningful success.
