Trump Cabinet meeting
3:43PM Oct 21, 2019
Okay, thank you very much like a cabinet baby. We'll have a few questions after race and we will get them in the
background Father in heaven. We're so thankful for the many blessings that she's going to show upon us. In this country. We're thankful for the people of courage, who have been here before us. That was hard for the rights of our country. We thank you for President Donald Trump, who also exhibits great courage
and face of constant criticism
we asked her to have the strength to endure
and the wisdom to be
and to recognize you as the sovereigns of the universe with the solution to everything and the people are President the vice president can be advisors give us all understanding heart, and a compassionate
those are the things that America great
and help us all to recognize and the nation that separates separation of church and state
means that the church does not dominate the state and the state does not domestic church. It doesn't mean that they cannot work together to promote
of loving your fellow man.
Caring about your neighbor,
developing your God given talents
to God combined
with the people around and the values
and principles that govern us.
If we do those things,
we will always be successful. We thank you for hearing After
the economy is doing fantastically well. It's getting close to another record. We've had many records since we went office. We're getting very close to another record. I don't know if anybody saw the household median income for eight years and President Bush in rows $400 for eight years of President Obama in rows $975. And for two and a half years of President Trump Damn it down is two and a half years. It Rose $5,000 not including $2,000 for taxes. So it was let's say 7000. So it's two and a half years were up 7000 compared to 1000, compared to 400. And that's for eight years and eight years. That's a number that just came out. But that's a number that I don't know how they can be any dispute already. I've never heard of a number like that, meaning the economy is doing fantastic. We need for our farmers or manufacturers or frankly unions and non unions. We need us MCA to be voted on. If it's voted on, pass, it's up to Nancy Pelosi to put it up, but she puts it up, it's going to dance. It's going to be very bipartisan. It's something that's very much needed in the hundreds of thousands of jobs. Mexico and Canada have approved that it's done. They're waiting for our approval. And we can't seem to get the votes. I call them to do nothing Democrats, I mean that they've done nothing. But this is something they can do very easily, will give them bipartisan approval, some credits or the credits they want, but they have to be able to do it. So the economy is doing fantastically well. We want to vote on us MCA. We have other trade deals that we've done. We've South Korea, which is a fantastic deal turned out even better than we thought. South Korea was a terrible deal. The person in charge of that particular deal Hillary Clinton, if you've heard of her, she's the one that's accusing everybody to be a Russian agent. Anybody that is opposed to as a Russian agent, so that's a scam that was pretty much put down. Don't see. I don't know Chelsea, which said the Russian agent. I don't know Jill Stein. I know. She likes environment. I don't think she likes Russians. If she doesn't like them, I know she's not a asset. You call her an asset of Russian history for a sec. There's something wrong with it. But I think that Kelsey Gabbert probably got helped quite a bit by this there. I think we will have because it shows the four and a half years and we ended up winning I had to go through two and a half years. If you would have done this earlier, people would have realized what a scam it is. Everybody's a Russian Russian into a Russian asset. The economy again is at a level that it's never been a we are doing, whether it's household income, whether it's almost any chart and I think maybe the best of all is unemployment, unemployment is reached historic lows. African American, Asian American, Hispanic American reach numbers that nobody ever thought would be possible at the lowest ever in history. So, if you're black Indians fan, if you're Asian, anyway, African American, Hispanic, a lowest in history. For women, the lowest and 71 years the best. When I say lowest, I'm talking about the best, both the best unemployment numbers and the best employment numbers. Either way you want to come you can say both because it's destined but as far as employment is concerned, we are the most People working today than ever before in the history of our country. We've had this close to 160 million people. So it's some incredible things are happening. Syria, we will be giving a much fuller report. My Secretary of Defense Esper, and a different people that are very much involved.
My pants Vice President, we're having very good news coming out the ceasefire is holding
the Kurds are moving out to safer areas beyond the safe zone, as we call it. Having a safe zone is not a bad thing. It's a good thing. And plenty of Turks have been killed because of conflicts on the border. So you know, you have to look at it both ways. But the ceasefire is absolutely holding some services but very little, relatively speaking. Of course, if you watch the fake news, it's like pretty pretty wild. Truly holding on watch these pundits that have been working on this thing for 20 years, they've been working on the Middle East for 20 years. They don't know what they're doing and they're telling you what to do. And say, What did Trump get out of it? What did he get out and I'll tell you what to get out of it. We won't be fighting it will bring our soldiers back home there was supposed to be there for 30 days. And they've been then up to 10 years in Syria. 10 years, but we're supposed to go in to a quick kit on ISIS and come out. As far as ISIS is concerned. When I took over November 2016. ISIS was all over the place. I'm the one meeting It was me. And this administration, working with others, including the Kurds, and captured all of the people that adopted about like, President Obama was a mess. And I was told that you went home and everybody told it would be years before you ever did what I did. In about a month and a half after I started. I went over to Iraq. I met with a general Now we figured out a plan and it was done within a month and a half. So I'm the one that should be captured. And I'm the one that knows more about it than you people are there for the fake funding. But I sort of have to smile to myself. I've done a couple of people on watching these people that I've been watching the point of view second much in the same place, just a little bit older and a little bit grayer. I've been watching them for one year saying about the Middle East, and they've been wrong, and everything they've ever said. And now all of a sudden people are starting to say, you know what Trump is doing his thing. And we have tremendous, tremendous power, because since the election of 2016, November, since that beautiful day, our country's picked up in value trillions and trillions of dollars of work for us in three years of balance numbers and nobody would believe numbers of I would have said it on the campaign trail. I would have been I would have been a Story aided by the fake media excoriated the numbers are far greater than anything but even if you hear that movie household median income, wandered down this breaking news $975 for eight years $7,000 for two and a half years. Nobody's ever seen on this. Larry Tucker was going to speak in a minute. And he's going to tell you that one of the ways right.
And by the way, other areas and countries in
Europe is very, very poor.
Very poor. China is doing very poorly worst year they've had in 57 years. I wonder why? I wonder why. I'm here you can't figure it out. And we're doing great. We're taking in billions and billions of dollars in some giant and they're reading with us because they the value that comes and they're pouring money into the economy because they don't want to lose a jazz but they always ended up having a terrible year worse than 57 pages. They say that is force. And they announced that they have the worst numbers they've had in 20 years. They announced six, I don't think it's six, I think it's probably minus something could very well be minus could very well be a negative territory. But we're doing great. And by the way, the dealer judge is coming along very well, they want to make a deal because they sort of have to make a deal. I think they have to make a deal because the supply chain is going down, the tubes supply chain is broken. Like you've never seen anything broken before. It's broken. So our soldiers on Syria, they're moving out very nicely. ISIS is being held by the Kurds. And I have an absolute commitment from Turkey that they're watching them just in case so we have a double we have the courage to watch it. As you know, most of the ISIS fighters that we capture We not Obama week, the week after that need our pledges yesterday, working with others, including the church, and we help them help again, we help the curse at work with the curse of death. So we have to curse in all ages, and we have the courage and we never gave the courage and commitment that we'd stay for them for 400 years and protect them. They've been fighting with the terms to three Hundred Years of people know, and nobody ever committed, gee, if you do this, we're going to do that we're going to stay with you forever. Nobody ever said that. But when I watch the respondents that that always are trying to take a shot, I say they say, why are we getting it? You know, we're getting at it. We're bringing our soldiers back home. That's a big thing. And it's going to probably work, but if it doesn't work, you're going to have people fighting They've been fighting for 300 years. It's very simple. It's really, really simple. We're going to put you on soldiers.com. So far there hasn't been one drop of blood shed during this whole period by an American soldier. Nobody would kill. Nobody got their finger is the nothing and the only way Rather, I think not expedition being rather intelligent and just leaving leaving certainly zooming in security oil. You remember I didn't want to go into iraq i was just submitted by the power went but I always was speaking against going into Iraq was not a great decision. I always say he's only did he say businesses do you want to keep the and we'll work something out with occurred so that they have some money, they have some cash flow, maybe we'll get one of our big oil companies to go in and do a proper have some cash flow, which they basically don't have right now,
Not a big ol area, but everybody's fighting for whatever there is. So we have a lot of good things going on over there. And they go in very well, as far as the continuation of the WeChat will be the Russian deal will be similar deal. Now I find out as I said before that they've tried to make other people into Russian agents Russian ISIS has no credibility. Now they have what you'd be extremely easy to be because I have a perfect problem. I made a perfect call not a default perfectly. Like the friend of mine is a great lawyer. So did you notice that the the subject of all of the specifics, because the way you use the trenches and this is like a perfect call, you must have known this was going to happen? No, I didn't mention it to my doctor
friends and then you say
By the way, said there was no pressure. There was no blackmail. There was nobody
in Congress for it. I have to tell you yesterday was great. It was great what he said. A lot of respect for him. Because he said, you know, you know this one Ukrainian said and pressure. I haven't heard one Ukrainian, not one say that there was pressure of any kind. They haven't even been reports of it to Africa. Nobody's even said and the reason you haven't heard that because there is no fresh cover And what happens is I release the conversation and that through ship the ship off cookies, a corrupt politician, chef is a corrupt politician that threw him off. Because he made up a lie. He may not want to say if I can be solution. And they went before the United States Congress. And he said, a made up story. It was fabricated, totally fabricated. They say he's a screenwriter. Well, this was screaming It was a fabricated story. So he made up a lie.
I released they never thought that I do this. I released a transcription
then by stenographers of the exact conversation and now the game was up and the other thing is the whistleblower and the other whistleblower and informer all these people that simple just career. You know why they disappear Because they talked about another good Hello conversation that I never had. They made up a conversation. Now if you looked at the whistleblower report, and you look at the actual transcribed conversation, the actual conversation banana, and you couple that with the president saying that that was a perfectly fine conversation I don't even know his you know what they're doing. He didn't even know about the money not being paid. Okay. I think that came out somewhere that the money he didn't know but then you also have his foreign minister saying no is a very good conversation. There was no anything. There was no pressure whatsoever. So there's a phony investigation. I watched a couple of people on TV today talking about it. They were talking about what a phony deal is what a phony investigation that is. And the republicans have to get tougher and fight. We have some very great fighters but they have to get tougher and fight because the democrats are trying to hurt the Republic. important for the election, which is coming up, where we're doing very well. We had a record, grab the history of the rain. It's the biggest crowd they've ever had. And we had 20,000 people outside and we were doing great election, we saw what happened in North Carolina, we picked up two seats that people didn't make a little bit of picked up. I was two weeks ago, last weekend, Governor that people thought was okay, went down. And now he's got a big election, he was under 50%. Nobody thought that was going to happen. We're doing very well. But a lot of the songs that are made up between the gallery shift a shift, it was a funny guy from a politician.
And the media buys, because unfortunately, the media is corrupted so
literally, so much anger, such a big percentage of it. It's such a shame, some great reporters and great journalists, but some really bad people. So that's the story. The economy is good. We're doing well with getting Finally, after 10 years, again, 30 days to 10 years, and we're getting out. Nobody, none of our people are engineering. It's very smooth thus far. And I think that you're going to see something that's going to be good. Remember this if turkey misbehaves, I don't think they will. But we have a power that nobody felt we had to the extent 12 sanctions, willpower entirely. Hello, the product coming here. They send tremendous amounts of scale to the United States and other things. We will terrify them and we will sanction them and but I don't want to use that as address because Mike Pence and our Secretary of State Michael Bay, they went out of the associated very good five day ceasefire. I'm sure we needed a little extension and would be happy but our powers are power of economics right now. we rebuild the military since November of 2006. The military was totally depleted from being in similar situations like this for so many years, our military was depleted to a level that we had very little ammunition that was actually no we had no ammunition. Now we have more ammunition that we've ever had. Our military is a stronger, stronger than it's ever been probably stronger than ever. And in a few short months, as the equipment pours in from the money, we spent two and a half trillion dollars, it will be it will be at a level that it's never even come to us. It's a big difference. All made in the USA, or made in the USA.
So we are very well. And if anybody has any questions for
president, we make him a limited number of troops in Syria. We maintain a limited number of troops in Syria
is going to be necessary. I don't want to
you know, we had 28 people said 50 was
you had an army in both sides of the so it's good to have been like that. I don't think it's necessary. Other than that we secure the oil in a little different section, but we disappeared, you know. And the other reason that region where we've been asked by Israel and Jordan delete, a small number of Phillips is a totally different section of Syria, near Jordan, and close to Israel. And that's a totally different section. That's a totally different mindset. So we have a small group there, and we secured the oil Other than that, there's no reason for in our opinion, and, again, the Kurds are going to be watching. We're working with the Kurds with good relationship with the Kurds. But we never agreed to, you know, protect the courage we squander them for three and a half, four years. We never agreed to protect the courage for the rest of their lives. Remember this? When Iraq was fighting because everybody thought we were going to fight with the parents. I said, Well, it's a little strange, and we're fighting with the cards when we just spent $4 trillion on Iraq. And now we're going to be fighting around So what I did is they said, we're not going to take a position, let them fight themselves. I thought the currents would do very well. I don't want to know their parents will do very well. Well, Iraq move in and the graves left. They didn't fight because they didn't have us fighting. A lot of people are good when they fight with us, you know, when you have $10 billion worth of airplanes, shooting 10 miles in front of your line, it's much easier to fight. But with that, they were a good helper. We were a great help to them do. They will find a nice as you know, they hated ISIS. So they were fighting ISIS. But we never agreed with an agreement that said we have to stay in the Middle East for the rest of humanity for the rest of civilization to protect them. And we have protected them. We've taken very good care of them. And I hope they're going to watch over ISIS because that's again, most of its not in the safe zone as we go. Some places called demilitarized zone and the oldest With all areas like this, a demilitarized and our relationship with the courage is good. And they're going to be safe. And I will say this is shooting into stock for a couple of days. I don't think the parents would have moved I don't think frankly, you would have been able to make a very easy deal with Turkey. I think when it started for a few days, it was so nasty. But when we went to Japan, and when we went to the Kurds, they agreed to do things that they never would have done before the shooting started. They didn't go through two and a half days about I don't think they would have done it. I think you couldn't imagine doing and people have been trying to make this deal for years. But you're close to making it we'll see what happens. Again, they've been fighting for 300 years that we know. We have engaged. So why should we put a soldiers in the midst of to large groups, hundreds Thousands potential people? I don't think so. I don't think so. Yes. You said no. Republicans need to get tougher and fight. What are you talking about? democrats fight dirty. I think the democrats allows you politicians with lousy policy. They want open borders. They don't care about Brian. They want sanctuary cities. They don't care about drugs. They don't care about almost any. They don't care about us MCA. How about that? I think they're lousy politicians, to two things, they have divisions. And they stick together. They don't have Mitt Romney in their minutes. They don't have people like that. They stick together. You never see them break off. You never see somebody go out and that's why I respected so much what I watched with will hurt today. Because he was one of the few that didn't seem to be there. And yet he made a statement. He said, Well, I haven't seen any complaints whatsoever. From the Ukrainians, it will be brilliant. And they didn't tell any of our investors.
This thing is all about a letter. That was perfect.
You never hear the letter anymore. It was all about whistleblowers. You never hear what happened to the list of all the gold, because they've been just reading. What happened to the informant? And where's the IG? Why did the IG read the letter? read the transcript? You could have gotten it? I guess I assume I would have declassified it for if I had to do that. Why didn't he read this? And then see that the whistleblowers account was totally different than the life that he would have said, oh, there's no problem. The whistleblower gave a false account. Now you have to say, well, do we have to protect somebody that gave a false account? You know, these whistleblowers? They have them like their angels. Okay. So do we have to protect somebody that gave a totally false account of my conversation? I don't know. You tell me We have to protect the informant. Now I happen to think there probably wasn't an informant. You know, the informant went to the whistleblower, the whistleblower the second and third hand information, you remember that there was a big problem, but the information was wrong. So was there actually an informant? Maybe the informant were shift it, could we shift the shift? In my opinion is possibly can. Why didn't shift say that he had a staff or his staff or what did he said that he met with the whistleblower? He knew all about the whistleblower. Why did he say he's a crooked politician? Very bad for our contract? This whole thing is very bad for our country. In the midst of that I'm trying to get out of wars. We may have to get in wars to Okay, we're gonna have to get in wars. We're better prepared than we've ever been. Before Rambo something they'll be hit like they've never been hit before. I mean, we have things we're looking at, but can you imagine I have to fight off these things. Slow lives the same time I'm negotiating this very important thing that should have been done during Obama and bush and even before that. Alright, so that's where we are.
Mr. President for the troops,
initiative to different parts, a different method. Ultimately, we're bringing them home yet we're bringing our troops back home. I got elected on bringing our soldiers that come outside very popular within the Beltway, because you know, Lucky doesn't like it. And these great military companies don't like it to number a popular and outside development. My largest cheer in Dallas, I have 25,000 people close in that arena for wicked bread. I had so many people outside of the thousands. My largest cheer that night was building the wall. Number one horribly, horribly, horribly, horribly wounded warriors. So toughest thing I did toughest thing is sending letters. I sent many letters home to parents and I speak to parents. And I said many letters home to parents, their, their son or daughter has been killed over the Middle East. For YO there are times to fight and there are times not to fight their times to be spot. We have tremendous economic power, and we're using our economic power much more powerful in certain ways then playing with with guns. Much better. Much better for everybody and actually much better for humanity. Okay.
Thank you. President
was a very simple situation. I own a property in Florida. I was going to do it at no cost or given three, if I got a rule in this is a question as to whether or not you're allowed to give it because it's like a contribution goes on to
actually get a rule.
But I would have given it for nothing. It's a lot of a lot of money, I wouldn't give it away, like I give away my salary, I give away my salary. It's I guess, close to $450,000. I give it away. Nobody ever say give you a salary. Now what comes up because it is I give away my presidential salary. They say that no other president is dumb. And I'm surprised to be honest with you. They actually say that George Washington may may have been the only other president that did, but see whether or not Obama gave up his salary. See whether or not all of the other of your favorites give up this out of the ashes. Now, they say it's the only one they think George Washington did, but they say no, so I give up a lot of money. $450,000 was the end. I give that up. So I have a place that's in the best location and burgeoning real estate. Much better than you even understand when you see my financials. jumped in at the right time. You'll say man is much better than this guy knows right here Milicic because he was in the private sector he does he knows very much what I have. He would tell you someday maybe he'll tell you but a very good a real estate is Miami. This facility everybody would have had their own bedroom. Everybody in the g7 would have ever known. It was so good Florida loved in the love economic development. It's it's not because it's it's a beautiful place it's new it's been totally rebuilt. It's everything's got massive reading rooms are limited for security because it's on you know, hundreds of acres. best location right next to the airport, Miami International, one of the biggest airports in the world. Some people say it's the biggest but one of the biggest airports and more 70 minutes away. They would have been great. But the democrats were British even though I would have done it free. Save the country a lot of money. Then they say oh, but you'll get promotion. If you don't think I get enough promotion I get more promotion that any human being that's ever lived. I think I get I think I wouldn't have that. I think I can say that fair research I think I get more promoting the any human being. That's typically some good some bad.
People would like to give me only good for people that don't like me to do anything, but that's the way life is. I don't need promotion.
Okay, but I was willing to do this for free and they would have it would have been the greatest g7 ever. And I would have said to my family, because they run my business though I don't run my business. I actually put all the stuff in trust. They run my and I didn't have to do under no obligation did I don't know. You know, George Washington. He ran his business simultaneous a while he was dressing. Many other presidents. There weren't too many really rich presidents, but there were a few They ran their business. Hey, Obama made a deal for a book. Is that running a business? I'm sure he didn't even discuss it while he was president. Yeah. He has to deal with Netflix. When did they start talking about that? That's only, you know, a couple of examples. But other presidents if you look, other presidents were wealthy, not huge. Well, George Washington was actually considered a very, very rich man at the time. But they ran their businesses George Washington, they say in two desks, he had a presidential desk and a business desk. I don't think you people with dysphonia monuments laws. And by the way, I would say that it's cost be anywhere from two to $5 billion to be present. And that's okay between what I lose and what I could have made, I would have made a fortune. If I just ran my business. I was doing it really well. I I have a great business and the best route but between what I learned And often some properties to rouse an example. The route was setting records when I bought his own different careers, setting records, it was going to there was nothing why it was making a fortune. And then what happened, I announced, I'm going to run for office. And all of us, as I say, we got to build the wall, we got to have borders, we got this, we got to have that all of a sudden, people, some people didn't like it. They thought the rhetoric was to them. And it went from doing right to doing fine, it does very nicely. Now. It's actually coming back I understand very strongly, but the route was setting records. And I knew this would happen, most of the stuff that they have, because now instead of having 100% of the market that loves you, and they love your brand, and it's luxury, and it's great. Now you have 50% of the market, that's called politics. I fully understood that. So it's costly between $2,005,000,000 and if I had to do again, I do it in an instant, because who cares if you can afford it? Whatever. It says a man. If I had this to do again because I'm making a big difference for the country, the country is stronger now than it's been in many years, maybe ever. Our military is rebuild our economy is hitting records. As I said best unemployment numbers. Best employment numbers is strong. We're bringing our soldiers back home from the endless wars. We're doing great. So whether I was $2 billion $5 billion
more or less doesn't make any difference to
you Richard doesn't matter. I'm doing this for the country. I'm doing it for the people that show up I haven't had an empty seat at a rally I always say what is the rally it's in a certain place Okay, just get the biggest the week. I go into these massive basketball arenas, like in Dallas where the Mavericks and fill it up and center record set a record almost every place I've been because we just need a little small stage. We don't need basketball courts, I think was and I take Less than musicians because they have bands. I don't know if they
set the world record for somebody without a guitar. Okay. I don't have
a sister. And you know those people are the pole and I had great balls. I have my best balls now. I think it's because people think that it's terrible what they're doing.
Hello, see? shifty Shane Schumer, these people are trying to destroy the country. It's a very bad thing with the President of the United States should be allowed to run the country not have to focus on this kind of crap, while at the same time doing a great job when Syria and Turkey and all of the other things that were good North Korea, okay, maybe someday but I'll tell you what, if somebody else became president, with that same mindset that then you'd read now be in a big war with North Korea. You don't hear too much about it good happen could happen. I don't know. I always say who knows. Steve, who knows. But in the meantime, North Korea is like him. He likes me to get wrong. I respect him. He respects me. You could end up in a war. President Obama told me that he said the biggest problem, I don't know how to solve it. He told me he doesn't matter. So I said, Did you ever call them not? Actually 11 times. But the man on the other side, the gentleman on the other side did not take his call. Okay. lack of respect. But he takes my call. Thank you very much.
What's the plan for the g7 Now
we'll look at other locations. I don't think it will be as exciting. They wouldn't be as good and of course, the country of Fortune because it's very expensive. I know. France had a budget of many, many millions of dollars. They just did. They did a great job. But France had a budget of many, many millions of dollars. It's going to cost you a fortune for the country. I was willing to do it for free. But people didn't like that they thought I may get some promotional value. I need promotional bags.
I don't need promotional guy. What do you say? See?
It's a Turkey. Turkey
Well, I think they want to any democrat wants to because they're not going to begin the election. So of course they want to create Why would they want to reach me? It's so it's so illegitimate. It cannot be the way the founders our great founders meant this to be what I see this guy, Congressman Al Green, say we have to impeach him. Otherwise he's gonna win the election. What's that all about? But that's exactly what they say.
We have to impeach him because otherwise he's gonna win. I'm gonna win the election. Look at the strongest economy ever. It's the economy stupid, right? At the strongest economy, in the history of our country.
Okay, it was Records over 100 times I think it's like 180. But over 100 times we've had the highest stock market in history since November eight
over 100 times. And by the way, today, I got elected the following day from there until January 20. The market went through the roof. You know why went through the roof, because they got rid of Obama, and they got rid of Clinton. And if anybody else in any of these people that I've been watching on the stage that elected your 401 K's would be down the tubes, they go down, not 20% but 30% they go down 7098 you destroy this country. You destroy the country. So I think they want to impeach me, because the only way they're going to win. They've got nothing. All they have is a phone call is perfect. All they have is a whistleblower who's disappeared. Where is it? He's done. When they have a second whistle blow the second whistle Well, it's got all it's going to Then they have an informant on the informant is wearing suit. They're interviewing. They're interviewing ambassadors who I'd never heard of. I don't know who these people are. I never heard of them. And I have great respect for some of them.
One of them said just recently,
very, very highly respected men. I'm not going to get into the names, but I said, No, no, we were very, very bothered by Joe Biden and his son. back during the Obama administration, he said we were very supposed to be there witness. Soviet many of these people were put there during Obama during Clinton during the never Trump or Bush era, you know, yeah, they're never Trump or but you have heard of those. Those people might be worse than never Trump is. Because this is the dialogue fast, they're on artificial respiration. I take a beach with Dave Bollywood pitch and they want to do it as quick as possible. And that's pretty much the story that we're covering and support.
Do you are you looking behind it? I think I've been working. So do you run the risk of alienating any? Oh, I don't think so already. Oh, there's
no, you know, I have to do what I have to do. I'll tell you what, I want to bring our soldiers back home. If people want to leave them there. I'll take that every day. Well, I know you are adults. All I know is the place went crazy when I said what Brynn our soldiers back home. Within this little area is a very unique area. They may feel that, but I have to do what I got elected on and I have to do what I think is right now, if I got elected on something, I think I was wrong. I'd second guess myself. I change. But they want our soldiers back home. And I think we can do as well or better. Frankly, let them think got it. They've got to keep going at each other. It's artificial to have the soldiers walking up and down but we do big countries. And by the way, I'm Just important. Larry Kudlow is going to say a few marks if you want. Would you like to stay for Larry? Because he's a great great remark maker. After that all day, Larry get up and you

point I want to make right at the start. You put out some great numbers

maybe ever, Larry, but maybe ever. I don't. I have to go back to
I don't think it's ever been done, but it's a long way survey 65,000, almost 66,000.
That is the middle of the middle.
So I think that's very important than the increase of roughly 8% never done before. And actually, if you look at the composition of wage increases, the biggest gains have come in the middle quintiles, the fourth and fifth, the lowest 10% of the biggest increase Not the highest wages, my biggest games, which is what really matters to individual people.
So I think that

Talk about the movies model.

out of the booth and wrap up here. America is working, as you said 6 million jobs 500,000 some odd manufacturing jobs and
let me make this point. Been working hard on this trying to convince my
former colleagues and the

That almost never happens. But let me
go under the bus just for a second.
Besides the payroll numbers, there's another survey from which unemployment

which tends to ask individual family members, small business entrepreneurs and start a household survey in the last four months is exploded. And it is averaging close to 400,000 per month. Now, the word

of business and financial economists believe the household survey is your leading indicator tells me sir is going to be in for another take off on the jobs Wages nonsupervisory production wages up 3.5% when we're leading indicator, the housing market, which has been solved for over a year, now seeing single family
sales 10 sales now shown several months of steady increases, that's good leading indicator that the economy is going to be speeding up, not slowing down. All this in the face of a few years, very tight monetary policy and the rest of the world is not growing. Basically, you're in recession, the rest of the world virtual session because of our incentive mind policies. Because of our emphasis on trade and energy and deregulation. We are growing twice as fast as the rest of the world and the numbers are telling me to make you ready for another take. Destiny may be voiceprint, another pick up after a quarter or two of softness. So I think we're in pretty good shape, sir.
In fact, my colleagues
or my former media colleagues may or may not agree, but I'm happy to go to facts, which is what I'm interested in here. And, of course, it's not breaking those low tax rates supply side.
But I do want to bring in my
friend and colleague
restaurant of OMD, because
part of this is the regular
We've cut regulations more than any administration in history, and that's in two and a half years. So two and a half years, we've got more regulation than any administration in the history of our country. And they've been for eight years and one case for more than that. So that's been pretty good. Thank you very much. Rust, belt
like gangbusters. result in your commitment to the director for initiative. So numbers for our group here 921, you said a commitment of two for two to regulatory issues for everyone. We're now nine and closes our third year. That is $50 billion and cost savings up from $33 billion. And that's just for those who are regulatory party. So when you look at the economy wide cost savings is $220 billion of savings for regulation, the regulatory initiative in the pipeline. And that's just the first round right now we're going through a process to figure out what's next. We want to be finishing the Big E regulatory initiatives this year that you ran are going to go forward this year with some exciting things to make sure infrastructure permitting happens much quicker basis. Vice President's gonna be leading a task force with governors to really multiply the efforts that they're doing on the state level things like auction Patient licensing, make sure that hairdresser in Montana who doesn't have to go to moves, doesn't have to go through 1000 hours of training when she moved to Idaho. That's the kind of thing that we want to multiply between the states and the federal government feels really expanded the work that you've been doing. So we're excited about that. And we can't think of the regulatory issues without thinking about the work that Andrew Wheeler doing at EPA. So we want to talk to you about
here and if you want, okay, then I think we'll be stuck with us.
Thank you is progressing I'm here to update you on the implementation of your executive order regarding water for us. As you know, understand Water Act EPA regulation and discharge includes the nation's navigable waters also known as water the
for voters and 2015. The Obama administration illegally expanded voters to include things such as dry channels don't close when it rains, isolated ponds, ditches, that's meant that meant that the vast majority of the nation's water to the fall under the federal control. The Iowa farm bureau estimated that nine 7% Institutions of Ireland would have fallen under federal control. North Dakota agriculture commissioner estimated over 90% of North Dakota would have been on federal control. The Obama EPA claim that the roles and interests of water quality was really about power power in the hands of the federal government, who upset the federal state partnership. Expanding borders would have meant more landowners would have to attain costly federal permits for activities on private property. The permit process can cost anywhere from 30,000 to $300,000 for a water permit, and it takes one to two years or more. So the 2015 rule was your investigation. 31 states have posted Mr. President, you knew that the Obama voters power grab his trouble from the get go. When you took office. You may be asked us to fix the problem. EPA and the Department of Army are implementing your bonus executive order
and as soon as two step process
last month, Army Corps and already James and I signed the final step one rule with repealing 2015 2015 rule is no longer on the books, we revert back to the previous on water definitions prior to 2015. We are working on finalizing step two or new proposed what is definition that we proposed last December, the proposal will clearly define what is a federal wetland as well as what is not, which is just as important, and it will limit where federal regulations apply. Or overreaching goal is that a property owner should be able to stand on his or her property vehicle itself themselves, whether or not that the Federal waterway to hire outside consultants to do that for now. We receive over 600,000 comments on our proposal. And we tend to finalize our proposal this one.
Thank you very much. And
I know you're working on the small refineries getting that straightened away so that it's going to be terrific for the small refineries. They've been hurt for a long time. And we gave them waivers for this year and that will that's helped them a lot. Welcome that make sure the small refiners happy. And for the farmers, ethanol now has been fully a growth we spoke with donors We spoke with. Very importantly, as we spoke with Chuck Grassley and the ethanol whole situation with ethanol that has been going on for so long for so many years. We have that downwards, finish that broke down and we're getting things ready to center. Perhaps you could just talk about the wall for our fathers. We've done a couple of things.
First of all, committed to and fulfill your father for making the 15 year round. That's what really needed to build infrastructure
that's 50% increase
in investment usage, which will happen before the economy with their hands on. We've also bounced up a small refinery waivers with the farmers and RFS, and once they fully understand what you've done
here, they'll be fine.
They seem to be very happy. They they deserve to be happy. They've gone through a lot. They were targeted by China, as you know, and we took some of the money out of the 16,000,000,012 billion for the last year. And we gave it back to the farmer they don't even want it. They just want a level playing field but they were targeted unfairly by China. Now China is buying tremendous amounts of product agricultural product. They've started maybe Bob light house, you could give us just a little update. I noticed that the today john has sent out a statement that the deal is coming along very well that they expect to have a deal. And you were talking about Jonathan. yesterday. We had we had Debbie low Morning, Sir Richard and I will be talking to our contact on
Friday who is making great progress our as you
say Our target is to have phase one deal gone by the time
you go to show a while there's still some some issues we have
Well, one little example is the farmers. So they were told that I was told that we could get $20 billion a year in purchase the biggest I've ever done the 16 is what I've heard is what they've said that we could get 20 gig in India from China, the China purchases was a unit of agricultural product, I'll be grateful
for my people 20 billion done, and I said, I want more. They said the farmers can handle it down the biologic tractors
to buy more land and the biologic tracks.
But I want more. And I said we want 60 billion to 70 billion, and we agreed to 40 to 50 billion. So they wanted 20 billion, I got 40 to 50 billion and they've already started by and that's just the way it goes. If I want to thank China for that and they have started the by So while we're figuring to do And that's going well, we hope decided probably in Chile when we have a summit in Germany,
or wherever that may be.
But we'll be able to sign a completed document with john on phase one and then we start working on phase two. And actually things in phase two are easier than phase one. But it's so big like as an example of the agricultural products and so big that we go through phases with the good but actually the things in in the second phase in many ways a lot easier when things are the first phase so we'll see how that goes. On. I think I was a mama's enough me sir. We can't be just that much. The Father's don't know that. It was originally from 22 potentially $50 billion. It'll be brought more more as a volunteer will be brought brought it will be bought that anytime in our history by far that's on top of the Japan deal that we just spent. Japan is buying a tremendous amount of Ag and other things from our country and our farmers are farmers have been great. They never wavered. They said the President is doing the right thing was sticking with the President. I didn't see any but they looked. Some of the networks. They looked, they looked all over for somebody that could speak negatively about the president and those farmers. Suddenly they stop. They said, nobody's doing the right thing. It may be hurting us, but he's doing the right thing. And I think in many ways, the farmer maybe is going to be the biggest beneficiary of what we're doing. Certainly one of them. I think our country is going to be the biggest beneficiary. Secretary, could I ask you to talk a little bit about drug pricing because we've cut it down a lot. And we had the first year of ever where prices actually went down. And we had democrat support. We could get them way down, but we don't have a lot of democrat support. And we can talk about
this. Sure. So we've had the third year in a row under President Trump's leadership but historic levels of really generic drugs. Those are the affordable alternatives to brand drugs for approaching three Thousand generic drugs approved on your tenure, that led to just in the first 18 months of your term
$26 billion of savings
for people for those who are horrible alternatives. And as a result, we have seen now, for the first time in 51 years, the largest decrease in prescription drug pricing under the Labor Department's inflation index, the largest decrease in 51 years. working with Congress, of course, tried to wrap the bipartisan package there that were an agreement on about 80% of the items were probably the most flexible party in the negotiations between the Democrats and Republicans and radical the real saving for the American people. But we're not stopping we're continuing to work on your scheme to bring drugs in and out of it and for drugs, and how we can make sure we're getting the same kind of deals for the American senior that the other developed countries you're getting and you're called most favored nation status. So rotten egg
Celebrate the years that other countries have much lower drug prices. And we did. So I said to a couple of governors, including Rhonda Santas, the Florida very much into go to Canada, where the prices of 50% buy from Canada will give you the approval. And we're working on those final approvals. So cannabis because of arcane rules, and because of protecting the middleman and protecting drug companies, frankly, other countries have prices that are much, much lower, you know, more than 50% in some places, Canada is pricing is much lower. So I told Rhonda said this, I told other governments go to Canada go to other countries buy the same product, same exact manufacturing many times manufactured in the same plant. And a bill will cost you 50% or less than it does in the United States. And it shows you how bad people run our country and we're going to get tremendous price cuts and your And we're in the process. And I'd like you to speed that up, Alex, if you could really speed it up, because Canada is loving to sell, and thereby the exact same product for 50%. That means people are going to get a 50% reduction in GoPros. So, in some cases, subsets of the most hard to believe how this country was taken advantage
by, frankly, everywhere,
in every different way. Okay. So thank you. And I'd like as Jeanne Scalia to maybe speak, he is a highly respected gentlemen and one of the best lawyers in the country
focused on labor law and these
down Department of Labor Secretary, and it's great to have you on our first meeting. Thank you first meeting. We got we got the past with a massive majority of people.
that's that's a massive
great honor to join you like president and the cabinet, the important work you're doing for the American people, including On the economic front, you mentioned some of those numbers really are virtually unprecedented, as you said, in some cases, unprecedented unemployment numbers since we've been tracking for African Americans, Americans, the lowest unemployment rate rate for women's generations. And as Larry said, for those of the lower end of the economic scale, they particularly are enjoying these benefits Americans who don't have a high school degree at the lowest unemployment rate ever seen. And this has been in part because of your efforts to bring about deregulation to the employers to grow off more jobs. I want to mention to that we're doing for labor partners in a vote as a result of executive orders and these issues, Mr. Fred First has to do with what we call Association health plans. And this is for small employers who are employed 10s of millions of American workers are critical to our economy, but they find it hard to provide reasonably priced health care to their workers. So what we did was we reduced some regulatory hurdles that stood in the way of small employers coming together, forming an association, working with the local Chamber of Commerce, for example, to provide health care through that association, that association can give the economies of scale
of a larger company,
okay has leverage of the larger company. It has another way that we can tailor the benefits available to these employees at the small at the small employers. The CEO is estimated that about 4 million Americans will benefit from these programs, and that they'll have pre premium reductions as much as $2,000 as result plan. I should say, some disgruntled state attorneys general business happened before Mr. President, they sued over one of the regulatory initiative. But I'm also pleased to say that my favorite Attorney General, yours, my former boss, Bill bar, his lawyers, the justice department are defending this litigation right now we shouldn't. And we've got a related plan, what we call Association retirement plans. And this again, this is a result of an executive where you issue Mr. President, same concept, but smaller employers come together, achieve economies of scale, exercise and leverage in negotiating to offer 401k plans are about 40 million Americans don't have a retirement plan, don't have a 401k plan. This will make it easier for them to get those plans. So Mr. President or two examples of steps that are helping the economy, they're
deregulating, but as I've described,
their healthy workers get healthier, they're retiring so
it's a big thing on the floor, which is very important. You
will go in the water.
Yes, thank you very much, Mr. President, because of the focus that you and the first leak and the entire cabinet administration have placed on providing the justified drug to the crisis in our nation, we are happy to report the first decline in 30 years of overdose deaths due to drugs, defined a 5.1% of the overall
consumerization 24% 24% reduction in overdose deaths in Ohio 23%. In Pennsylvania, we found that 90% of Iowa 17% in Kentucky 11% of the amateur and 90% in the state of West Virginia,
these are really incredible numbers. I mean, you're not going to report them. So we're just wasting say well, but those are good numbers.
But this action is turning in the right direction. Now the so we have Mr. President, the most significant bipartisan accomplishment in my view, your presidency is HR six, and we're on the year anniversary of HR six every single day we have loaded for HR 16 green ones running for president. It is the largest investment dollars in prevention education, treatment and recovery and surveillance interdiction, international system and wardrobe crisis. Part of the education and equipping America is called feedback day. The Drug Enforcement Agency GA runs to take back days and here the next one is this Saturday. Since the Trump administration got into office, we've collected 4.6 million pounds of unused prescription drugs that support just 4.6 million drugs that will be something 14 6 million pounds. That's the way to 18 Boeing 727 aircraft just collected so it is a drug supply and demand crisis. We have partnered with over 5000 law enforcement agencies and due to private sector partnerships with CBS Friday, Google, Walgreens, Walmart and the rest. We have 8300 total size nationwide now that Google will map out for us if you just take me to the computer, take back my John's returns. prescription opioids, they will show you locations in your area tell you how to drive a walk, there is a safe way of returning your drugs. I need this marketing and more compassionate way for people to return unused or needed expired pills that happens on Saturday in cabinet has been so consistently and so deeply involved in one thing, each and every one of them for this effort and to present it as well as the first week and also I'm happy to report that CBS has filled his commitment to double the number of T fat sites. And in our effort to make everyday feedback day, people don't need to wait any longer for every six months. Walgreens CVS, they've got two seats away. Safe, safe, safe, safe, where you're delaying the distribution of pharmaceuticals to make sure it's going to the person it's intended to happen to be part of the NFL two weeks ago, send out a message to all of its NFL clubs, equipping them to show our Trump administration public service announcements on a bad day, along with graphics and the NFL Network is involved. Finally, Major League Baseball last week agreed to show DS take back in public service announcement this Friday during the World Series. Thank
you very much go here and take birthday is a big deal. And we've been talking about it for a long time. Nobody's ever done it. But it is really good. Alex wants to mention just one additional thing,
just on the deregulation agenda. deregulation is a key part of that great health care that you promised the American people this vision of a personalized, affordable Patient Centered system that interview the patient in the center and in control, treat you like a human being not like a number because if you're focusing on the bureaucracy, that's not focusing on the patient. So we've delivered to $12.5 billion of regulatory savings that's over half of the entire government. Give you an example. We have freed up 40 million hours of doctor and nurse to not be doing the paperwork 40 million hours of agree on things by donations and stuff. incredible thing where there was people delivering that that level of deregulation here.
And something that some people think could be as big or bigger than healthcare is transparency. We're doing transparency. And you want to give just a one minute update on that transparency and pricing and transparency on the quality of your dollar.
Yeah, so this is something the president's office so the transparency of his initiatives on transparency could be bigger than any kind of health care individual health care plan that you might have. What he means by that is what we have proposed is making all of the hospitals rates, what they have negotiated with the individual ensure transparent and available so that you the patient would know before you go to the hospital, what some things that have cost you on your actual insurance plan. And then we'll do that with insurance regulations that your insurance company will send you before you go to the doctor's office in advance explanation of benefits. It tells you the list price, the negotiated price, and what you'll pay out of pocket. We're going to Make this information available to you as individuals, this is going to empower you. This will shake up the entire healthcare system to put the patient at the center. So you have the right to create a real consumer experience in healthcare, unlike what we've had for the last 15 years.
And just and as our as a trade do start taking in these traders are incredible. Whether it's North Korea, South Korea, North Korea is going to be probably some things that we will go through to some interesting information on North Korea.
And a lot of things are going on.
And it's going to be a major rebuild at a certain point. South Korea is getting much more involved with us than we ever thought in terms of the economy and in terms of the vaping a lot of money is being spent down there. They're going to be doing it real estate
doing tremendous purchase rather tremendous deficit with them. And we're slowly getting one of these deficits with deficits with everybody. But as the trade deals start kicking in with China, especially phase one with the farmers and, and with the banks, the banking system financial services, as they start kicking in, you will see a tremendous difference. In the economy, the economy is already by far number one. So if I weren't elected by right now, China would be the largest economy in the world. It was expected it was set by many people that China would right now they were expecting around the second year of this term. Not only are they the biggest economy in the world, but they are way, way, way, far away.
much bigger than the China become. And we're getting bigger than
now, at 1.4 billion people. I guess you'd call that an advantage. But we have an economy like I think we have the strongest economy we've ever had. And I think in the way the economy Read the military and all the other things is done. There's nothing like it. But when trade deals start kicking in. And as I said the South Korea didn't kick in, and things are happening with that that are very positive. But as they begin, you'll see tremendous numbers, tremendous changes, because the trade deals we had was so pathetic. They were so bad. I used to sit back and say no, my guys had it. Somebody actually negotiate these deals, how did they even negotiate? This was done at a level that it's not even understandable why people were allowed to do it, how they were allowed, how they got fast. But we're making great deals and when they get get the economy as good as it's been going. I think, Larry, I can say that as good as it's been doing. It's going to be even better than that. So our country is doing fantastically well. Perhaps better than ever before. Thank you all very much. Thanks.
Tricky I've noticed the end of next year.
We're done. Thank you guys.
