President Trump and Poland’s President hold joint press conference, live stream


WORKERS AT DISNEY, AMAZON, WAL-MART, AND THE FAST FOOD INDUSTRY STANDING UP, STANDING UP AND FIGHTING FOR A LIVING WAGE OF AT LEAST $15 AN HOUR AND THE RIGHT TO HAVE A UNION. THEY ARE THE YOUNG PEOPLE TAKING ON THE FOSSIL FUEL INDUSTRY AND DEMANDING POLICIES THAT TRANSFORM OUR ENERGY SYSTEM AND PROTECT OUR PLANET FROM THE RAVAGES OF CLIMATE CHANGE. THEY ARE WOMEN WHO REFUSE TO GIVE CONTROL OF THEIR BODIES TO LOCAL, STATE OR FEDERAL POLITICIANS. THEY ARE PEOPLE OF COLOR AND THEIR ALLIES DEMANDING AN END TO RACISM AND MASSIVE RACIAL INEQUITY THAT EXIST THROUGHOUT OUR SOCIETY. THEY ARE IMMIGRANTS AND THEIR ALLIES FIGHTING TO END THE DEMONIZATION OF UNDOCUMENTED PEOPLE AND FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM. NOW WHEN WE TALK ABILITY OLIGARCHY LET US BE CLEAR ABOUT WHAT WE MEAN. RIGHT NOW IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA THREE FAMILIES CONTROL MORE WEALTH THAN THE BOTTOM HALF OF OUR COUNTRY, SOME 160 MILLION AMERICANS. THE TOP 1% OWN MORE WEALTH THAN THE BOTTOM 92%. 49% OF ALL FLU INCOME GENERATED TODAY GOES TO THE TOP 1%. IN FACT INCOME AND WEALTH INEQUALITY TODAY IS GREATER IN THE UNITED STATES THAN IN ANY TIME SINCE THE 1920’S. WHEN WE TALK ABOUT OLIGARCHY IT’S NOT JUST THAT THE VERY RICH ARE GETTING MUCH RICHER. IT IS THAT TENS OF MILLIONS OF WORKING CLASS PEOPLE IN THE WEALTHIEST COUNTRY ON EARTH ARE SUFFERING UNDER INCREDIBLE ECONOMIC HARDSHIP, DESPERATELY TRYING TO SURVIVE. TODAY NEARLY 40 MILLION AMERICANS LIVE IN POVERTY AND TONIGHT SOME 500,000 AMERICANS INCLUDING MANY VETERANS WILL BE SLEEPING OUT ON THE STREETS. ABOUT HALF OF OUR COUNTRY LIVES PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK AS TENS OF MILLIONS OF OUR PEOPLE ARE IN ACCIDENTS, A DIVORCE, A SICKNESS OR A LAYOFF AWAY FROM ECONOMIC DEVASTATION. WHILE MANY PUBLIC SCHOOLS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY LACK THE RESOURCES TO EDUCATE OUR YOUNG PEOPLE THEY ARE THE MOST HEAVILYIMPRISONED PLACE ON EARTH. AFTER UNBIDLCORPORATE GREED WE HAVE AN ECONOMY THAT IS BROKEN AND UNFAIR. EVEN WHILE MACRO ECONOMIC NUMBERS LIKE GDP, THE STOCK MARKET AND THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE ARE STRONG. MILLIONS OF MIDDLE CLASS AND WORKING CLASS PEOPLE STRUGGLE TO KEEP THEIR HEADS ABOVE WATER WHILE AT THE SAME TIME, THE BILLIONAIRE CLASS CONSUMES THE LION SHARE OF THE WEALTH THAT WE ARE COLLECTIVELY CREATING AS A NATION. IN THE MIDDLE OF A SO-CALLED BOOMING ECONOMY, REAL WAGES FOR THE AVERAGE WORKER HAVE BARELY RISEN AT ALL AND DESPITE AN EXPLOSION IN TECHNOLOGY AND WORKER PRODUCTION, THE AVERAGE WAGE OF THE AMERICAN WORKER IN REAL DOLLARS IS NO HIGHER THAN IT WAS 46 YEARS AGO. MILLIONS OF PEOPLE IN OUR COUNTRY TODAY ARE FORCED TO WORK TWO OR THREE JOBS JUST TO SURVIVE. HERE IS SOMETHING QUITE INCREDIBLE THAT TELLS YOU ALL THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE RESULTS OFCAPITALISM. ALL OF US WANT TO LIVE LONG, HAPPY AND PRODUCTIVE LIVES BUT IN AMERICA TODAY THE VERY RICH LIVE ON AVERAGE 15 YEARS LONGER THAN THE POOREST AMERICANS. IN 2014 FOR EXAMPLE, IN WEST VIRGINIA, ONE OF THE POOREST COUNTIES IN THE NATION. LIFE EXPECTANY FOR MEN WAS 64 YEARS. IN FAIRFAX COUNTY, VIRGINIA, A WEALTHY COUNTY JUST 350 MILES AWAY, LIFE EXPECTANCY FOR MEN WAS 82 YEARS, AN 18 YEAR DIFFERENCE. THE LIFE EXPECTANCY GAP FOR WOMEN IN THE TWO COUNTIES WAS 12 YEARS. THE ISSUE OF CAPITALISM OF IS NOT JUST AN ACADEMIC DEBATE. POVERTY, ECONOMIC DISTRESS AND DESPAIR ARE LIFE THREATENING ISSUES FOR MILLIONS OF WORKING PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY. WHILE THE RICH GET RICHER, THEY LIVE LONGER LIVES. WHILE POOR AND WORKING FAMILIES STRUGGLE AND OFTEN LACK PROPER HEALTH CARE, THEIR LIFE EXPECTANCY IS DECLINING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MODERN AMERICAN HISTORY. THE AMERICAN DREAM OF UPWARD MOBILITY IS IN PERIL. IF WE DON’T TURN THINGS AROUND OUR YOUNGER GENERATION WILL FOR THE FIRST TIME IN LIVING MEMORY HAVE A LOWER STANDARD OF LIVING THAN THEIR PARENTS. THAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. GLOBALLY THE SITUATION IS MORE SHOCKING WITH MOST OF THE WORLD’S WEALTH CONCENTRATED AMONG A VERY FEW WHILE BILLIONS OF PEOPLE HAVE ALMOST NOTHING. TODAY, THE WORLD’S RICHEST 26 BILLIONAIRES, 26, NOW OWN AS MUCH WEALTH AS THE POOREST 3.8 BILLION PEOPLE ON THE PLANET, HALF OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION. THE STRUGGLE WE ARE FACING TODAY IS NOT JUST ECONOMIC. ACROSS THE GLOBE THE MOVEMENT TOWARD OLIGARCHY RUNS PARALLEL TO THE GROWTH OF REGIMES LIKE PUTIN IN RUSSIA, MOHAMMED IN SAUDI ARABIA, THE PHILIPPINES, BRAZIL AND HUNGARY AMONG OTHERS. THESE LEADERS HELD CORPORATEERS REDIRECT POPULAR ANGER ABOUT INEQUALITY AND DECLINING ECONOMIC CONDITIONS INTO VIOLENT RAGE AGAINST MINORITIES WHETHER THEY ARE IMMIGRANTS, RACIAL MINORITIES, RELIGIOUS MINORITIES OR THE LGBT COMMUNITY. TO SUPPRESS THE SET THEY ARE CRACKING DOWN ON DEMOCRACY AND HUMAN RIGHTS. IN THE UNITED STATES OF COURSE WE HAVE OUR OWN VERSION OF THIS MOVEMENT WHICH — IS BEING LED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP AND MANY OF HIS REPUBLICAN ALLIES WHO ARE ATTEMPTING TO DIVIDE OUR COUNTRY UP AND ATTACK THESE VERY SAME COMMUNITIES. HOW SAD IT IS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP SEES THESE LEADERS AS FRIENDS AND ALLIES. THE PLAY BOOK BY THE WAY IS NOT NEW. THE CHALLENGE WE CONFRONT TODAY AS A NATION AND AS A WORLD IS IN MANY WAYS NOT DIFFERENT FROM THE ONE WE FACED A LITTLE LESS THAN A CENTURY AGO DURING AND AFTER THE GREAT DEPRESSION OF THE 1930’S. THEN AS NOW, DEEPLY ROOTED AND SEEMINGLY INTRACTABLE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL DISPARITIES LED TO THE RISE OF RIGHT WING NATIONALIST FORCES ALL OVER THE WORLD. IN EUROPE, THE ANGER AND DESPAIR WAS ULTIMATELY HARNESSED BY DEMOGOGUES WHO FUSED CORPORATE, RACISM AND XENEPHOBIA IN A POLITICAL MOVEMENT THAT DESTROYED DEMOCRACY AND ULTIMATELY MURDERED MILLIONS OF PEOPLE INCLUDING MEMBERS OF MY OWN FAMILY. WE MUST REMEMBER THAT THOSE WERE NOT THE ONLY PLACES WHERE DARK FORCES TRIED TO RISE UP AND CAPTURE POWER. TODAY WE ARE ALL RIGHTLY REPULSED BY THE SIGHT OF NEONAZIS MARCHING IN VIRGINIA AND HE WITH ARE HORRIFIED BY HOUSES OF WORSHIP BEING SHOT UP BY RIGHT WING TERRORISTS. ON FEBRUARY 20th, 1939, OVER 20,000NAZIS HELD A MASS RALLY NOT IN BERLIN, NOT IN ROME BUT IN MADISON SQUARE GARDENS IN FRONT OF A 30- FOOT BANNER OF GEORGE WASHINGTON IN NEW YORK CITY. NEW YORK CITY. BACK THEN THOSE AMERICAN [INAUDIBLE] COULDN’T REPLICATE THE SUCCESS OF THEIR BRETHREN ACROSS THE OCEAN BECAUSE WE IN THE UNITED STATES, THANK GOD, MADE A DIFFERENT CHOICE THAN EUROPE DID IN RESPONDING TO THE ERRORS, SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CRISIS. WE REJECTED THE IDEAS OF HITLER AND WE INSTEAD EMBRACED THE BOLD AND VISIONARY LEADERSHIP OF FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT, THEN THE LEADER OF THE PROGRESSIVE WING OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. TOGETHER WE HAVE ORGANIZED LABOR, LEADERS IN THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY AND PROGRESSIVES INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, ROOSEVELT LED A TRANSFORMATION OF THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AND THE AMERICAN ECONOMY. LIKE TODAY THE QUEST FOR TRANSFORMING CHANGE WAS OPPOSED BY BIG BUSINESS, BY THE POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT, BY THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND BY THE CONSERVATIVE WING OF FDR’S OWN DEMOCRATIC PARTY. HE FACED THE SAME SCARE TACTICS THEN THAT WE EXPERIENCED TODAY. RED BAITING, XENOPHOBIA, RACISM AND ANTI SEMITISM. IN A FAMOUS 1936 CAMPAIGN SPEECH, ROOSEVELT STATED, AND I QUOTE, WE HAD TO STRUGGLE WITH THE OLD ENEMIES OF PEACE, BUSINESS AND FINANCIAL MONOPOLY, SPECULATION, RECKLESS BANKING, CLASS ANTAGONISM, WAR PROFITEERING. THEY HAVE GUN TO CONSIDER THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES AS A MERE APPE NDA GE TO THEIR OWN AFFAIRS. WE KNOW NOW THAT GOVERNMENT BY ORGANIZED MONEY IS JUST AS DANGEROUS AS GOVERNMENT BY ORGANIZED MOB. ROOSEVELT CONCLUDED — AND I QUOTE, NEVER BEFORE IN ALL OUR HISTORY HAVE THESE FORCES BEEN SO UNITED AGAINST ONE CANDIDATE AS THEY STAND TODAY. THEY ARE TOGETHER IN THEIR HATE FOR ME, AND I WELCOME THEIR HATRED. [APPLAUSE] THAT WAS — THAT WAS FDR IN 1936. NOW DESPITE — THOUGH IT DOES SOUND — I MUST SAY IT DOES SOUND A LITTLE MODERN, DOESN’T IT DESPITE THAT OPPOSITION, BY RALLYING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FDR AND HIS PROGRESSIVE COALITION CREATED THE NEW DEAL, AND CREATED AN ECONOMY THAT WORKED FOR ALL AND NOT JUST A FEW. TODAY NEW DEAL INITIATIVES LIKE SOCIAL SECURITY, UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION, THE RIGHT TO FORM A UNION, THE MINIMUM WAGE, PROTECTION FOR FARMERS, REGULATION OF WALL STREET AND MASSIVE INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS ARE CONSIDERED PILLARS OF AMERICAN SOCIETY. WHILE HE STOOD UP FOR THE WORKING FAMILIES OF OUR COUNTRY, WE CAN NEVER FORGET THAT PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT WAS REVILED BY THE OLIGARCHS OF HIS TIME WHO B ERA TED THESE EXTREMELY POPULAR PROGRAMS AS SOCIALISM. SIMILARLY IN THE 1960’S WHEN PRESIDENT JOHNSON BROUGHT ABOUT MEDICARE, MEDICAID AND OTHER EXTREMELY POPULAR AND IMPORTANT PROGRAMS HE WAS ALSO ATTACKED BY THE RULING CLASS OF THIS COUNTRY. HERE IS THE POINT. NOT ONLY DID FDR’S AGENDA IMPROVE THE LIVES OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE BUT THE NEW DEAL WAS HUGELY POPULAR AND HELPED DEFEAT FAR RIGHT EXTREME ISM. FOR A TIME. TODAY AMERICA AND THE WORLD ARE ONCE AGAIN MOVING TOWARD THE SAME RIGHT WING FORCES OF OLIGARCH, RACISM ARE ON THE MARCH, PUSHING US TO MAKE THE WRONG CHOICE THAT EUROPE MADE IN THE LAST CENTURY. TODAY WE NOW SEE A HANDFUL OF BILLIONAIRES WITH UNPRECEDENTED WEALTH AND POWER. WE SEE HUGE PRIVATE MONOPOLIES OPERATING OUTSIDE OF ANY REAL DEMOCRATIC OVERSIGHT AND OFTEN HELPED BY TAXPAYERS. WITH THE POWER TO CONTROL ALMOST EVERY ASPECT OF OUR LIVES. THEY ARE THE PROFIT TAKING, GATE KEEPERS OF HEALTH CARE, OUR TECHNOLOGY, OUR FINANCE SYSTEM, OUR FOOD SUPPLY AND ALMOST ALL OF THE OTHER BASIC NEEDS OF LIFE. LET US NAME THEM. THEY ARE WALL STREET, THE INSURANCE COMPANIES, THE DRUG COMPANIES, THE FOSSIL FUEL INDUSTRY, THE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX, THE PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX AND GIANT AGRO BUSINESS. THEY ARE THE GROUPS WITH UNLIMITED WEALTH WHO SURROUND OUR NATION’S CAPITOL WITH THOUSANDS OF WELL PAID LOBBYISTS WHO TO A VERY SIGNIFICANT DEGREE WRITE THE LAWS THAT WE LIVE UNDER. TODAY WE HAVE A DEMOGOGUE IN THE WHITE HOUSE WHO FOR CHEAP POLITICAL GAIN IS A TEMPTING TO DEFLECT THE ATTENTION OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AWAY FROM THE REAL CRISIS THAT WE FACE AND INSTEAD IS DOING WHAT DEMOGOGUES ALWAYS DO AND THAT IS TO DIVIDE PEOPLE UP AND LEGISLATION HATRED. >> IF YOU WANT TO KEEP LISTENING INTO THE SENATOR YOU CAN KEEP WATCHING AT CBS NEWS.COM/SANDERS. FOR NOW WE WILL GO TO WHERE THE PRESIDENT IS SET TO TAKE QUESTIONS ALONGSIDE THE PRESIDENT OF POLAND. LET’S LISTEN IN. >> BACK TO THE WHITE HOUSE. WE HAVE BECOME FRIENDS. WE LAST HOSTED THEM IN WASHINGTON IN SEPTEMBER. IT’S WONDERFUL TO SEE YOU BOTH AGAIN. THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU. GREAT HONOR. SINCE OUR LAST MEETING THE UNBREAKABLE BONDS BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND POLA ND HAVE GROWN EVEN CLOSER. THIS YEAR IS AS OUR NATIONS MARK 100 YEARS OF DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS THE ALLIANCE IS STRONGER BY FAR THAN EVER BEFORE. EARLIER TODAY THE PRESIDENT AND I SIGNED A JOINT DECLARATION AFFIRMING THE SIGNIFICANT DEFENSE, COOPERATION BETWEEN OUR NATIONS AND AS THE — AS THE DECLARATION MAKES CLEAR THE UNITED STATES AND POLAND ARE BOUND BY A STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP AND BY DEEP COMMON VALUES AND A VERY STRONG AND ABIDING FRIENDSHIP. OUR PEOPLE ARE UNITED BY THE ENDURING TIES OF CIVILIZATION, CULTURE AND HISTORY. WE RESPECT THE RULE OF LAW, REVERE INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS AND PRIZE OUR TIMELESS TRADITIONS. WE EMBRACE COUNTRY, FAITH, FAMILY AND FREEDOM. OVER THE PAST CENTURY BRAVE AMERICAN AND POLISH PEOPLE HAVE STOOD TOGETHER TO DEFEND OUR LIBERTY AND OUR NOBLE WAY OF LIFE. WHEN I WAS LAST IN POLAND I WAS VERY PROUD TO STAND AMONG VETERANS OF THE WARSAW ESPECIALLY RISING AND RECALL THEIR INCREDIBLE COURAGE OF NAZI TYRANNY. WE HONOR THE SACRIFICE OF ALL THOSE WHO CAME BEFORE TO SAFE GUARD OUR INDEPENDENCE. AS STATED IN THE JOINT DECLARATION THE UNITED STATES AND POLAND CONTINUED TO ENHANCE OUR SECURITY COOPERATION. POLAND WILL SOON PROVIDE FACING AN INFRASTRUCTURE TO SUPPORT MILITARY PRESENCE OF ABOUT A THOUSAND AMERICAN TROOPS. THE POLISH GOVERNMENT WILL BUILD THESE PROJECTS AT NO COST TO THE UNITED STATES, THE POLISH GOVERNMENT WILL PAY FOR THIS. WE THANK THEM FOR THEIR PARTNERSHIP IN ADVANCING OUR COMMON SECURITY. THE BURDEN SHARING, ALSO EXTENDS TO THE NATO ALLIANCE, WHERE IT IS AMONG EIGHT ALLIES INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES MEETING THE MINIMUM 2% OF GDP. THAT’S FOR DEFENSE SPENDING AND POLA ND — THERE AND YOU HAVE BEEN THERE FROM A VERY EARLY DAY THAT WE APPRECIATE THAT VERY MUCH. WE HAVE BEEN THERE ALSO. THERE HAVE BEEN A TOTAL OF EIGHT. EIGHT OUT OF 28. THE REST ARE COMING ALONG. NATIONS HAVE PAID MORE THAN $100 BILLION MORE TOWARD THE NATO DEFENSE. LAST MONTH I WAS VERY PLEASED THAT POLAND ANNOUNCED THE INTENT TO PURCHASE 32 AMERICAN F-35 FIGHTER AIR CRAFT LIKE YOU JUST SAW. MOMENTS AGO WE WITNESSED THAT IMPRESSIVE FLY OVER OF CUTTING EDGE F-35 AS IT FLEW OVER THE WHITE HOUSE AND CAME TO A PRETTY CLOSE — CLOSE TO A HALT OVER THE WHITE HOUSE. I WOULD SAY WHAT’S WRONG WITH THAT PLANE IT’S NOT GOING VERY FAST. IT’S AN INCREDIBLE — INCREDIBLE THING WHEN YOU CAN DO THAT. THAT PLANE CAN LAND DEAD STRAIGHT AND IT’S ONE OF THE FEW IN THE WORLD THAT CAN DO THAT. CONSIDERED TO BE THE GREATEST FIGHTER JET IN THE WORLD. I APPLAUD THE PRESIDENT’S EFFORTS TO STRENGTHEN AND MODERNIZE THE DEFENSES OF POLAND AND ON THEIR PROGRESS OF MEETING CRITERIA FOR ENTRY IN TO THE VI A WAIVER PROGRAM. WE SIGNED AN AGREEMENT, A SIGNIFICANT AND NECESSARY STEP FOR POLAND INTO THE PROGRAM. WE STILL HAVE SOME WORK TO DO. WE HOPE TO WELCOME POLAND INTO THE VISA WAIVER PROGRAM AND THAT’S A BIG DEAL. BOTH OF OUR NATIONS UNDERSTAND THAT IMMIGRATION, SECURITY IS NATIONAL SECURITY. IN OUR MEETING THE PRESIDENT AND I DISCUSSED THE VITAL ISSUE OF ENERGY. RELIANCE ON A SINGLE FOREIGN SOURCE OF ENERGY LEAVES NATIONS AT RISK TO COERCION AND EXTORTION. WE SUPPORT THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE BALTIC PIPELINE WHICH WILL HELP EUROPEAN COUNTRIES DIVERSIFY THEIR ENERGY SOURCES. IT’S DESPERATELY NEEDED THAT’S THE WAY TO GO. DURING THE PAST YEAR POLAND HAS SIGNED APPROXIMATELY $25 BILLION WORTH OF NEW CONTRACTS WITH UNITED STATES FIRMS TO BUY MORE THAN SIX BILLION CUBIC METERS OF NATURAL GAS. TODAY OUR NATIONS JUST SIGNED ANOTHER CONTRACT FOR ANOTHER TWO BILLION CUBIC METERS WORTH APPROXIMATELY WORTH $8 BILLION. BETWEEN THE PLAINS AND THE NATURAL GAS AND OTHER THING THAT POLAND IS DOING. POLAND IS DOING VERY WELL. WE APPRECIATE IT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. MR. PRESIDENT. OUR COUNTRY HAS SIGNED AN AGREEMENT TO EXPAND UNITED STATES, POLISH, CIVIL NUCLEAR COOPERATION WHICH WILL LIKE WISE ADVANCE POLA ND’S ENERGY AND SECURITY AND DEEPEN THE TIES. ECONOMIC RELATIONS BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND POLAND ARE THRIVING. WE ARE COMMITTED TO FURTHER EXPANDING COMMERCE — PERHAPS MY FAVORITE WORD. ACROSS MANY CRITICAL AREAS FROM DEFENSE AND DIPLOMACY TO ENERGY AND ECONOMICS. WE ARE REACHING NEW HEIGHTS IN 2019. OUR LONGSTANDING PARTNERSHIP DEMONSTRATES THE POSSIBILITIES FOR THE WORLD WHEN TWO STRONG AND INDEPENDENT NATIONS UNITE IN COMMON PURPOSE AND IN COMMON CAUSE. IT’S AN HONOR TO HAVE YOU WITH US. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR BEING HERE. WE BRING IN A VERY EXCITING NEW ERA IN UNITED STATES POLISH ALLIANCE. IT’S A SPECIAL ALLIANCE WITH SPECIAL PEOPLE. WE BUILD A FUTURE OF PROMISE AND PROSPERITY FOR THE AMERICAN AND POLISH PEOPLE AND OUR RELATIONSHIP IS AN EXTRAORDINARY ONE. IT’LL REMAIN THAT WAY FOR A LONG TIME. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. PRESIDENT. . >>>MR. PRESIDENT, WONDERFUL FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. MINISTERS. ALL GUESTS, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. FIRST AND FOREMOST. TOGETHER WITH MY WIFE WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR. PRESIDENT, DONALD TRUMP, THANK YOU ALSO TO THE FIRST LADY FOR THIS INVITATION TO WASHINGTON. THANK YOU FOR THIS POSSIBILITY OF HOLDING ANOTHER WITH IN THE LAST TEN MONTHS OFFICIAL VISIT TO THE UNITED STATES HERE AT THE WHITE HOUSE. THIS DEMONSTRATES HOW CLOSE AND HOW GOOD CONTACTS ARE TODAY BETWEEN POLAND AND THE UNITED STATES. MR. PRESIDENT, ALL OF US HOPE THAT YOU WILL VISIT US IN POLAND IN SEPTEMBER AND THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TOGETHER TO REMEMBER THE MEMORY OF THOSE WHO FELL AND WHO PERISHED DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR WHICH STARTED ON THE 1ST OF SEPTEMBER IN 1939, IN POLAND THROUGH THE ATTACK OF NAZI GERMANS ON OUR COUNTRY. SOON OUR COUNTRY VANISHED THERE THE MAP OF EUROPE AFTER THE ATTACK OF THE SOVIET UNION AGAINST POLA ND TOGETHER WITH NAZI GERMANY. THAT IS OUR HISTORY. IT’S A VERY DIFFICULT ONE. TODAY WE FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT THE TRUE ALLY OF POLAND AND SAY TRUE ALLY OF FREE EUROPE IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WHO HELPED THAT VERY EUROPE IN SUCH A HUGE WAY TO WIN THE SECOND WORLD WAR AND LATER TO ESTABLISH AN INDEPENDENT FREE WORLD WHICH LATER TURNED IN TO THE EUROPEAN UNION. IT EXISTS UNTIL THIS DAY AND THANK GOD AND THANKS TO THE SUPPORT OF THE UNITED STATES. THROUGH THE SUPPORT OF PRESIDENTS SINCE 1989, THANKS TO THE GREAT MOVEMENT OF SOLIDARITY AND THE GREAT DETERMINATION OF THE POLISH NATION. ALSO POLA ND WHICH FREED ITSELF FROM BEHIND THE AYRAN CURTAIN WHICH LED TO THE COLLAPSE OF THE CURTAIN THROUGH THE VOTES OF THE PEOPLE IN 1989. IN THOSE ELECTIONS PEOPLE SAID NO. POLAND CAN BY A INDEPENDENT COUNTRY. A COUNTRY WHICH WANTS TO BUILD THE EUROPE COMMUNITY AND A COUNTRY WHICH ALSO WANTS TO BUILD THE ATLANTIC COMMUNITY. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY KEY ELEMENT OF PEACE AND GOOD COOPERATION ACROSS THE GLOBE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. PRESIDENT. THANK YOU THAT YOU ARE AMONG THOSE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES WHO UNDERSTANDS HOW IT WORKS PERFECTLY. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN THE UNITED STATES LOOKS AT EUROPE, WHEN IT LOOKS AT THE SECURITY OF THE EUROPEAN STATES IT PLAYS A KEY ROLE FOR THE PEACE AROUND THE GLOBE. IT’S OF KEY IMPORTANCE FOR A PEACEFUL DEVELOPMENT OF DEMOCRATIC STATES AND COMMUNITIES. THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT FOR THIS EXTREME KINDNESS TOWARD POLAND AND PERFECT UNDERSTANDING OF POLISH MATTERS. DURING YOUR VISIT TO POLAND. DURING YOUR MEMORANDUM ORABLE SPEECH THAT YOU GAVE AT THE MONUMENT OF THE WARSAW UP RISING. OF HISTORIC DURATION TO — THEY SHOWED WHAT POLAND MEANS AND WHO POLES ARE. THANK YOU FOR SAYING THOSE WORDS BACK THEN AND THANK YOU FOR THE POLICY WHICH IS DOING DONE RIGHT NOW WHICH DEMONSTRATES THAT YOU ARE THIS KIND OF MAN AND THIS KIND OF POLITICIAN WHO WOULD NOT ONLY SPEAK BUT TO WHOM FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANT ARE THE DEEDS. THE MOST IMPORTANT ARE THE DEEDS AND WHEN YOU SAY MR. PRESIDENT MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN IT MEANS MAKE [INAUDIBLE] AND THIS IS IMPORTANT. THE AGREEMENT THAT WE ARE SIGNING, HENCE TWO AGREEMENTS CONCLUDED TODAY OF UNDERSTANDING WHICH WE SIGNED JUST A MOMENT AGO. ONE OF THEM I SIGNED PERSONALLY CONCERNS THE SECURITY AND MILITARY COOPERATION AS YOU SAID, THERE WILL BE MORE AMERICAN TROOPS IN POLAND. THIS IS GOING TO BE AN ENHANCED COOPERATION. ITS GOING TO BE AN ENDURING PRESENCE WHICH HOPEFULLY WILL INCREASE SLOWLY IN TERMS OF THE NUMBER OF TROOPS AND IN TERMS OF INFRASTRUCTURE WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT. THANK YOU ALSO FOR THAT DECISION TO ESTABLISH THE DIVISION HEAD QUARTERS IN POLAND. THIS IS OF HUGE IMPORTANCE TO POLAND. TO THE BALTIC STATES AND TO ALL THOSE, TO WHOM — ENHANCED FORWARD PRESENCE WAS ESTABLISHED OF THE UNITED STATES AND OTHER NATO STATES, ALONG THE EASTERN FLANK. THANK YOU FOR THE REMAINING AGREEMENTS, THANK YOU FOR THIS AGREEMENT WHICH TALKS ABOUT — PREVENTING AND COMBATING SERIOUS CRIMES. IT MOVES US CLOSER TO A WAIVER PROGRAM. TO POLES IS SO IMPORTANT, OF SUCH IMPORTANCE. THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT FOR ENERGY COOPERATION THAT WE HAVE IN TERMS OF SUPPLIES. WE TALKED ABOUT THIS IN 2017 IN WARSAW DURING A MEETING. THAT GAS FROM THE UNITED STATES SHOULD BE DELIVERED TO POLAND AND IT’S DELIVERED WE ARE SIGNING MORE CONTRACTS. GAS TANKERS FROM THE UNITED STATES ARE COMING TO THE PORT WHICH TODAY — AND THE GAS FROM THE UNITED STATES — IT HAS BECOME A FACT IN POLAND IN OUR PART OF EUROPE. THANK YOU THAT THERE WILL BE MORE SUPPLIES, I’M VERY HAPPY ABOUT THAT. TO US IT MEANS DIVERSITY OF SOURCES OF SUPPLIES, ALSO THE DEVELOPMENT OF GAS SECURITY TO US. IT MEANS GOOD BUSINESS. JUST AS I DID — IS A GOOD BUSINESS FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. ALSO FOR THE AGREEMENT. NUCLEAR ENERGY USED FOR CIVIL PURPOSES. I HOPE THAT TOGETHER WE WILL BE ABLE TO DO THIS PROGRAM WITH THE BENEFIT FOR PROSECUTE TEXT WITH THE BENEFIT FOR PROTECTION ACROSS THE GLOBE AND FOR THAT DEVELOPMENT OF THE SECURITY OF MY HOMELAND. I’M DEEPLY GREATFUL FOR THIS VISIT. I’M PLEASED THAT BECAUSE THAT HAVE WE ARE ABLE TO SHOW THE GOOD COOPERATION WE HAVE BETWEEN POLAND AS PART OF THE EU AND THE UNITED STATES. I BELIEVE THAT THANKS TO YOUR INCREDIBLE VIEW OF THE EUROPEAN MATTERS AND YOUR UNDERSTANDING TO OUR POLISH MATTERS, AND TO OUR HISTORY THIS WILL DEVELOP BETTER BETTER ALSO WITH THE BENEFIT — FOR THE UNITED STATES WHOSE INTERESTS YOU ARE REPRESENTING. ALSO THE REST OF THE WORLD. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> . >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WE WILL TAKE A FEW QUESTIONS. EMERALD. OAN. . >> THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT. >> THANK YOU. >> EARLIER — IN THE OVAL OFFICE BEFORE YOU DID YOUR MEETING WITH THE PRESIDENT YOU WERE QUITE CRITICAL OF GERMANY AS YOU TALKED ABOUT POSSIBLY MOVING TROOPS GERMANY TO POLAND. DO YOU THINK DOING A MOVE LIKE THAT WILL PUT PRESSURE ON GERMANY TO MEET THEIR DEFENSE SPENDING REQUIREMENTS >> NO IN ‘T DO THINK SO. I JUST WILL — TELL YOU VERY STRONGLY THAT I THINK GERMANY IS MAKING A GREAT MISTAKE BY RELYING SO MUCH ON THE PIPELINE. I THINK IT’S A GREAT MISTAKE FOR GERMANY. GERMANY — IS RUNNING THEIR AFFAIRS AND — THEY WILL DO JUST FINE. I WAS CRITICAL. I HAD BEEN CRITICAL OF IT. IT’S A GREAT AMOUNT OF ENERGY. AT THE SAME TIME HAVING NOTHING TO DO WITH GERMANY, POLAND SAID THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO BUILD A FACILITY, A GREAT FACILITY AND WOULD LIKE TO HAVE YOU COME TO THAT FACILITY. WE WILL BE THERE WITH A LIMITED FORCE. WE WILL BE THERE AND WE APPRECIATE POLAND DOING WHAT THEY ARE DOING. IT’S A GREAT LOCATION. IT’S A GREAT — IT’S A GREAT PLANT, GREAT FACILITY AND WE — IT’S OUR HONOR TO BE THERE. POLAND HAS BEEN A GREAT FRIEND OF OURS FOR A LONG TIME. WHEN WE WERE THERE NOT SO LONG AGO IT WAS A VERY SPECIAL DAY. I THINK IT WAS A SPECIAL DAY FOR POLAND ALSO BUT FOR OUR COUNTRY. I APPRECIATE THAT AND OUR RELATIONSHIP IS JUST A VERY STRONG ONE. >> IF I MAY WOULD YOU IND ULGE ME WITH ONE MORE QUESTION >> GO HEAD. >> YOU SAID YOU GOT ANOTHER LETTER FROM NORTH KOREA. TODAY WE HEAR OF THE POTENTIAL THAWING RELATIONS BETWEEN SOUTH AND NORTH KOREA. COULD YOU GIVE US AN UP INDICATE ON WHAT IS IN THAT LITTER IS THERE A THIRD SUMMIT IN THE WORKS >> JUST WROTE ME A NICE LETTER. UNEXPECTED. SOME DAY YOU WILL SEE WHAT WAS IN THAT LETTER. SOME DAY YOU WILL BE READING ABOUT IT. MAYBE IN A HUNDRED YEARS NOW, MAYBE IN TWO WEEKS. WHO KNOWS. IT WAS A NICE LETTER. I APPRECIATED IT. OKAY >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> IF I — YOU SAID YOU WERE THANKFUL FOR THE COMMITMENT THAT THE PRESIDENT MADE FOR MORE TROOPS TODAY. YOU HINTED THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE. WHAT IS THE NUMBER OF TROOP THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE IN POLAND UNITED STATES TROOPS >> THIS OF COURSE IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE THE DECISION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. THIS IS GOING TO BE THE DECISION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. >> IN TROOPS. >> THANK YOU. >> IT ALWAYS IS GOING TO BE UP TO THE UNITED STATES TO DECIDE HOW MANY TROOPS WILL BE SENT TO POLAND TO WHICH — ALLIED NATION. I NO HE THIS DEPENDS ON THE NEED AND ON THE REAL SITUATION ON THE GROUND. WE ARE VERY PLEASED THAT A UNITED STATES TROOPS ARE PRESENT BY GIVING EVIDENCE TO THE STRENGTH OF THE ALLIANCE. THE UNITED STATES SOLDIERS ARE KINDLY TREATED IN POLAND. THEY ARE RECEIVED AS FRIENDS AND WE ARE HAPPY THAT THEY ARE SERVING IN OUR COUNTRY. WE WOULD LIKE THOSE BONDS TO BE TIGHTER AND WE ARE TRYING TO CREATE THE BEST POSSIBLE CONDITIONS FOR AMERICAN SOLDIERS. . >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH PRESIDENT TRUMP, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I HAVE QUESTIONS FOR BOTH OF YOU. HOW DO YOU PLAN TO ENHANCE UNITED STATES MILITARY PRESENCE IN POLAND. LAST YEAR YOU PROMISED YOU WOULD ENHANCE A MILITARY COOPERATION, TRAINING, INTELLIGENCE, MISSILE DEFENSE AND IT’S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. PEOPLE OF POLAND STILL REMEMBER YOUR INCREDIBLE SPEECH IN WARSAW. WHY POLAND IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT ALLY FOR YOU >> I JUST HAVE A VERY WARM FEELING FOR POLAND. I ALWAYS HAVE. IT’S NOW EVEN BEYOND THAT BECAUSE OF THE RELATIONSHIP WHICH WE HAVE DEVELOPED WITH THE PRESIDENT AND FIRST LADY. IT’S JUST — THEY ARE INCREDIBLE PEOPLE. HARD WORKING, SMART — WHAT THEY HAVE DONE WITH THE COUNTRY OVER THE LAST FIVE YEARS HAS BEEN SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD HAS WATCHED AND HAS MARVELED AT. I JUST LIKE POLAND. HE ASKED ME — I SAID I WILL CONSIDER IT. NOW BECAUSE OF HIS LEADERSHIP WE ARE ABLE TO DO THAT AND THAT’S FINE. IT’S GREAT FOR ME. >> WE CAN — WE WILL SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER IN SEPTEMBER IN WARSAW. >> WE ARE LOOKING SERIOUSLY AT GOING BACK TO POLAND. WE ARE THINKING ABOUT GOING BACK IN SEPTEMBER. >> THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU. PRESIDENT. >> QUESTION MR. PRESIDENT, SO FAR WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT A ROTATION OF TROOPS IN THE COUNTRY. RIGHT NOW WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ENDURING OR PERMANENT PRESENCE. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN IN CONCRETE TERMS AND WHEN CAN BE EXPECT THE ADDITIONAL TROOPS TO ARRIVE >> I UNDERSTAND THAT IN THE FOLLOWING WAY. WE ARE DOING — VERY CALM BUT CONSISTENT POLICY IN TERMS OF SECURITY THAT THE PRESENCE OF — THE UNITED STATES IN POLAND. THE MILITARY PRESENCE, THE PRESENCE OF UNITED STATES TROOPS WHICH TODAY — IS ABOUT 4,500 TROOPS. ON A PERMANENT BASIS, IT’S AT ROTATIONAL PRESENCE. IT IS — BACK TO BACK PRESENCE. THERE’S NO MOMENT — NO AMERICAN TROOPS IN THE TERRITORY OF POLAND. TODAY WE SIGNED A DOCUMENT IN FURTHER COOPERATION, JOINT COOPERATION — REGARDING THE UNITED STATES POSTURE IN THE REPUBLICAN OF POLAND THIS IS A BREAKTHROUGH CHARACTER BECAUSE IT — MOVES US. SO FAR WE SAY THAT THE AMERICANS WERE TESTING THE SITUATION IN POLAND. HOW IT LOOKS, HOW IT FEELS. WHAT ABOUT LOGISTICS. IF IT’S POSSIBLE TO SUSTAIN POLAND AND OBTAIN THE GOALS AND DO THE TASKS OF DEFENSIVE NATURE. I THINK THAT — THE — THE COMMANDERS OF UNITED SATES ARMY ARE CONVINCED THAT THIS IS POSSIBLE. TODAY THE DOCUMENT SPEAKS ABOUT THIS ENDURING PRESENCE. THE PRESENCE WHICH IS A FACT AND WHICH WILL STAY THERE. IT’S A — THIS IS MOST BENEFICIAL FROM TODAY’S PERSPECTIVE TO TRAIN SOLDIERS THROUGH ROTATIONAL PRESENCE. BY HAVING ROTATIONAL PRESENCE MOVE CAN COME TO A COUNTRY, BE PRESENT THERE, LOOK AT A CORN — AT THE CONDITION IN PLACE IN A GIVEN COUNTRY. THIS IS BENEFICIAL FOR THIS. A DEVELOPMENT OF THE ARMED FORCES. THIS IS — AN ENDURING PRESENCE. IT’S DOING THIS PARTICULAR WAY. WE HOPE IT’LL DEVELOP ONE THOUSAND TROOPS. MENTIONED BY THE PRESS TODAY WHICH IS — ALSO THE NUMBERS SPECULATED IN THE AGREEMENT SIGNED TODAY WHICH IS DIFFERENT. IT’S NOT ONE SINGLE UNIT. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT SPECIAL OPERATION FORCES, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT LOGISTICS, ALSO ABOUT TALKING ABOUT THE ALREADY MENTIONED DIVISION HEADQUARTERS. THERE IS A MULTITUDE OF FORMS IN WHICH THE UNITED STATES IS GOING TO BE SLOWLY EVER MORE PRESENT IN OUR TERRITORY FROM THE MILITARY STANDPOINT. THIS WILL HAVE DIVER FIELDS OF COOPERATION. WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT JUST ONE SINGLE BAIT. A MORE FULL COOPERATION. HEALTH PROTECTION AND OTHER ELEMENTS HAPPENING. THERE IS THIS MISSILE DEFENSE FACILITY BEING BUILT. TALKING ABOUT THE ELEMENTS OF POLISH AMERICAN COOPERATION. THERE’S MORE ELEMENTS AND THE NUMBER IS GROWING. I’M VERY HAPPY WITH THAT. >> LET’S SEE. WHO DO I LIKE NOBODY, THAT’S THE END. GO HEAD. YEAH. >> ME MR. PRESIDENT. >> I WASN’T POINTING TO YOU BUT YOU CAN GO. HERE WE GO. >> POINTING TO. >> I WAS ACTUALLY POINTING TO MY FRIEND WITH THAT BEAUTIFUL HAT ON BUT THAT’S OKAY. >> ALL RIGHT. >> YOU GIVE UP YOUR QUESTION >> YOU WILL GIVE UP YOUR QUESTION >> WE CAN SHARE IT. >> WE WILL SHARE IT. >> WE WILL SHARE IT. >> YOU SEEM TO SUGGEST YESTERDAY THAT — YOU ARE ESSENTIALLY COMMITTING TO NOT SPYING ON NORTH KOREA. IS THAT WHAT YOU MEANT. >> NO IT’S NOT WHAT I MEANT. IT’S WHAT THEY SAID AND IT’S DIFFERENT THAN MAYBE YOUR UNDERSTANDING. I THINK WE ARE GOING TO DO VERY WELL WITH NORTH KOREA OVER A PERIOD OF TIME. I’M IN NO RUSH. THE SANCTIONS ARE RUN. WE HAVE OUR HOSTAGES BACK. OUR REMAINS ARE COMING BACK. YOU SAW THE BEAUTIFUL CEREMONY WITH MIKE PENCE. WE ARE GETTING THE REMAINS BACK. THERE’S BEEN NO NUCLEAR TESTING WHATSOEVER. THEY WOULD LIKE TO DO SOMETHING. I DID GET VERY — AS I SAID YESTERDAY A VERY NICE LETTER FROM — CHAIRMAN KIM AND I THINK WE ARE DOING VERY WELL. WHEN I TOOK OVER I WILL TELL YOU IT LOOKED LIKE IT WOULD BE WAR WITH NORTH KOREA. YOU KNOW THAT. EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT. IT WAS GOING TO BE QUITE BRUTAL. A STRONG FORCE. THE STRONGEST FORCE IN THE WORLD. THE STRONG FORCE. WE STARTED OFF A VERY ROUGH RELATIONSHIP. WE HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP RIGHT NOW. WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. I’M IN NO RUSH. I’M IN NO RUSH. THERE’S BEEN NO NUCLEAR TESTING WHATSOEVER. WHEN I TOOK OVER IT WAS NUCLEAR TESTING ALL THE TIME. IF YOU LOOK BACK TO THE LAST FOUR, FIVE, SIX YEARS, GO BACK FURTHER THAN THAT. NO FAIRNESS TO PRESIDENT OBAMA. GO BACK 20 YEARS, 15 YEARS, IT WAS REALLY A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION. I CONSIDER IT TO BE DIFFERENT NOW. I MADE CHANGE. YOU ALL KNOW IT. I WILL BE VERY QUICK TO TELL YOU EXACTLY WHAT IS OING ON. I MADE CHANGE. RIGHT NOW WE HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP. I THINK PROBABLY BETTER THAN WE HAVE HAD FOR 25 YEARS, MAYBE FOREVER. YOU KNOW THEY HAVE BEEN THERE A LONG TIME. THE GRANDFATHER, THE FATHER, THE SON, AND THEY HAVE BEEN THERE FOR A LONG TIME. NOBODY HAS DONE ANYTHING BUT ME. WE WILL SEE HOW IT ALL TURNS OUT. I HOPE IT TURNS OUT WELL FOR YOU AND FOR EVERYBODY. >> AND I WILL GIVE MY FOLLOW UP TO JEFF VERY QUICKLY. PRESIDENT — THANK YOU. DO YOU SEE RUSSIA AS AN ALY FOR ENEMY >> YOU TALKING TO ME >> PRESIDENT DUDA. >> THAT WAS A SET UP QUESTION. . >> I WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE RUSSIA TO BE A FRIEND OF POLAND BECAUSE IT IS OUR GREAT NEIGHBOR. IT IS A COUNTRY MUCH BIGGER THAN POLAND WITH A BIGGER POTENTIAL THAN POLAND IN EVERY SINGLE RESPECT BUT FOR WHEN — I BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE MORE COURAGE IN US. THAT WE ARE MORE BRAVE, MORE COURAGEOUS AND ARE ABLE TO FIGHT UNTIL THE END. THIS IS WHAT WE DEMONSTRATED IN WORLD WAR II AT BATTLE — WE DEMONSTRATED THAT IN THE WARSAW UP RISING, IN MANY OTHER PLACES AROUND THE WORLD WHERE POLISH SOLDIERS DIED TO MAKE SURE POLAND IS FREE AFTER THE SECOND WORLD WAR. THIS DIDN’T HAPPEN. WE FUND OURSELVES UNDER THE RUSSIAN OCCUPATION. EVEN THEN FOR ALMOT 20 YEARS AFTER WORLD WAR II THERE WAS THIS ABOUT ANTI COMMUNIST UNDERGROUND THAT BOUGHT AGAINST THE UNDERGROUND. WE CALL THEM UNBREAKABLE SOLDIERS. THEY WERE DUG UNDERGROUND TO MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND THEIR REMAINS SO THEY COULDN’T HAVE GRAVES BUILT. WE WERE ALWAYS FIGHTING AND KNEW HOW TO DEFEND OURSELVES. HISTORY WAS BRUTAL TOWARD US. WE NEVER HAD A GREAT FRIENDSHIP WITH RUSSIA. RUSSIA WAS ALWAYS LOOKING OUT TO TAKE OUR TERRITORY. IT POLAND DIDN’T EXIST BECAUSE PART OF THE TERRITORY WAS TAKEN BY RUSSIA. POL ES WERE SENT EAST AND THEN CAME AN AGGRESSION ON THE RIGHT — ON THE WAR IN POLAND WHICH ROSE. IS IT WAS US IT WHO STOPS SOVIETS AT WARSAW BY THE BRAVERY OF POLISH SOLDIERS. WE DEFEATED THEM DURING A GREAT BATTLE AND THEN CHASED THEM BACK TO THE EAST AND THEN THEY TOOK THEIR REVENGE IN 1939 BY ATTACKING US TOGETHER WITH NAZI GERMANY AND MURDERING OUR OFFICERS. AS YOU CAN SEE, THIS FRIENDSHIP IS A VERY DIFFICULT ONE. TODAY WE ARE IN THE FOLLOWING SITUATION. RUSSIA ATTACKED GEORGIA. THEN IN 2014 ATTACKED UKRAINE AND THESE ARE FACTS. THESE ARE FACTS WHICH ARE BELONG TO THE RECENT HISTORY. WE WITH LIKE RUSSIA TO BE OUR FRIEND BUT UNFORTUNATELY RUSSIA AGAIN IS SHOWING IT’S VERY UNKIND, UNPLEASANT FACE AND WE WOULD NOT WANT TO BE PART OF THE RUSSIAN SPHERE OF INFLUENCE AND I’M HAPPY WE CAN SPEAK BOLDLY IN POLAND THAT WE TRULY ARE FIRST AND FOREMOST IN TERMS OF POLITICS PART OF THE WEST. WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PART OF THE WEST IN TERMS OF COURAGE. WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PART OF THE WEST BECAUSE IT IS FROM THE WEST FROM WHICH WE [INAUDIBLE] CHRISTIANITY IN 966 AND SINCE THAT TIME WE HAVE BEEN PART OF THE WEST OF EUROPE AND PART OF THE GREAT CHRISTIAN CULTURE OF EUROPE. WE HAVE TO STICK TO THIS WEST IN TERMS OF POLITICS. THIS IS WHAT WE WANT. THIS IS THE BINGEST DESIRE OF POLISH PEOPLE TO BE PART OF THE WEST, ALSO IN TERMS OF POLITICS. THANK YOU, THAT THE UNITED STATES IS SUPPORTING US IN THIS RESPECT. MAYBE WE HELP ALSO BECAUSE OF WHAT WE ARE DOING AND DOING FOR POLAND. I HOPE THAT POLAND WILL HAVE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP WITH RUSSIA. I HOPE WE WILL HAVE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP WITH RUSSIA AND BY THE WAY, CHINA AND MANY OTHER COUNTRIES. WE LOOK FORWARD TO DOING THINGS ON NORTH KOREA JUST TO GO BACK TO THE ORIGINAL PART OF YOUR QUESTION. WE WILL SEE HOW THAT WORKS OUT. I DO WANT TO SAY THOUGH WE ARE IN NO HURRY. DESPITE OUR TRADE DIFFERENCES RIGHT NOW WE THOUGHT WE HAD A DEAL AND UNFORTUNATELY THEY DECIDED THEY WERE GOING TO CHANGE THE DEAL AND CAN’T DO THAT WITH ME. SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN. I THINK 2 WILL BE SOMETHING VERY POSITIVE. WE THINK WE WILL GET ALONG WITH A LOT OF COUNTRIES THAT DID NOT RESPECT US VERY MUCH BECAUSE THEY WERE RIPPING US OFF FOR YEARS. THEY AREN’T RIPPING US OFF ANYMORE. >> THANK YOU. REGARDING CHINA. WHAT IS YOUR DEADLINE IF YOU HAVE ONE FOR CHINA TO MAKE PROGRESS ON TRADE BEFORE YOU IMPOSE THE TARIFFS ON THE OTHER $325 BILLION IN GOODS IN. >> WE ARE GOING TO BE MEETING. THE PRESIDENT AND MYSELF. WE HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP. AGAIN HE IS FOR CHINA AND I’M FOR THE UNITED STATES. IT’S A BIG DIFFERENCE. WE THOUGHT WE HAD A DEAL. WE DIDN’T HAVE A DEAL AND I WOULD NEVER MAKE SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE LESS THAN WHAT WE ALREADY HAD. WEHAD CHINA OPENED UP TO TRADE. THAT’S A BIG THING. THEY HAVE NEVER DONE THAT BEFORE. WE HAD — PROPERTY THEFT TAKEN CARE OF AND TAKEN CARE OF BEAUTIFULLY. ALL OF THE SUDDEN THOSE THINGS STARTED TO DISAPPEAR AFTER THEY WERE NEGOTIATED. THAT IS — YOU KNOW THAT’S THEIR DECISION. I THINK THEY HAD TO DO IT AGAIN AND WE HAVE 25% ON $250 BILLION OF GOODS COMING IN TO THE UNITED STATES AND THEY — WE HAVEN’T HAD INFLATION. YOU KNOW THEY KEEP SAYING THAT — THAT THE AMERICANS ARE PAYING FOR IT. NO. NO. VERY LITTLE. WHAT IS REALLY DOES MEAN IS THAT A LOT OF THOSE COMPANIES THAT ARE IN CHINA WILL MOVE BACK TO THE UNITED STATES. YOU HAVE CAR COMPANIES, GM AS AN EXAMPLE THAT BUILT PLANTS IN CHINA. THAT DOESN’T WORK OUT WELL WHEN YOU HAVE THE TARIFFS WALL UP. THEY WILL HAVE TO GET THROUGH THAT AND CAN’T. MAYBE THEY WILL START BUILDING PLANTS IN THE UNITED STATES INSTEAD. I THINK THAT WE WILL END UP MAKING A DEAL WITH CHINA. WE HAVE A VERY GOOD RELATIONSHIP THOUGH IT’S A LITTLE TESTY RIGHT NOW AS YOU WOULD EXPECT. I THINK THEY REALLY HAVE TO MAKE A DEAL. A LOT OF COMPANIES ARE LEAVING CHINA AS YOU KNOW. IT’S — ALL THE REPORTS AND THEY ARE GOING TO VIETNAM AND VARIOUS OTHER PLACES AND THEY ARE ALSO COMING TO THE UNITED STATES TO MAKE THEIR PRODUCT. THEY DON’T WANT TO PAY THE TARIFFS. THERE IS NO TARIFFS IF YOU DO IT IN THE UNITED STATES. PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE THAT. YOU KNOW THEY SAY THAT THE TARIFFS BUT THERE IS NO TARIFFS IF YOU DON’T DO IT — IF YOU JUST DO EXACTLY AS I SAID. YOU BRING YOUR COMPANY BACK TO THE UNITED STATES. AS FAR AS MEXICO WHICH IS A VERY BIG TOPIC YESTERDAY AND NOW PEOPLE ARE FINDING OUT THAT THE REPORTS THAT WERE WRITTEN WERE FALSE. WE WOULD NEVER HAVE HAD A DEAL WITH MEXICO WITHOUT IMPOSING TARIFFS. ONCE THEY WERE IMPOSED AND THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THIS DEAL FOR 20 YEARS, 25 YEARS. THE OLDER REPORTERS, THOSE GREAT REPORTERS WITH THE VERY GRAY HAIR IN THE BACK, YOU KNOW WHO I’M TALKING ABOUT. THEY KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. YOU WOULDN’T HAVE MADE THE DEAL. WE HAVE A GREAT DEAL WITH MEXICO. I THINK WE HAVE A BETTER RELATIONSHIP RIGHT NOW WITH MEXICO BECAUSE THEY RESPECT US AGAIN. YOU WOULD NEVER HAVE HAD THAT DEAL IF I DIDN’T IMPOSE THE TARIFFS. THOSE TARIFFS WERE READY TO GO ON MONDAY MORNING. WE MADE THE DEAL ON ESSENTIALLY SUNDAY NIGHT. THAT EXTRA LITTLE PAGE OF THE DEAL THAT YOU SAW THAT I HAD GAINED SUCH RESPECT FOR YOU PEOPLE WHEN I HELD IT UP TO THE SUNLIGHT AND IT WAS CLOSED YOU WERE ABLE TO READ IT THROUGH THE SUNLIGHT. THAT WAS NOT ANTICIPATED BUT REGARDLESS, I MEAN YOU KNEW ENOUGH OF WHAT IT SAID. I DIDN’T DO IT ON PURPOSE. WE HAVE A LOT OF STRENGTH AND 45 DAYS IF WE DECIDE TO USE THAT STRENGTH MAYBE WE WILL AND MAYBE WE WON’T. THERE’S A LOT OF POWER RIGHT NOW ON THE BORDER. I WILL SAY THIS. MEXICO IS RIGHT NOW DOING MORE FOR THE UNITED STATES ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND ALL OF THE PROBLEMS OF CRIME AND OTHER PROBLEMS ON THE BORDER THAN THE DEMOCRATS. WE CAN SOLVE OUR PROBLEM ON THE BORDER IN 15 MINUTES IF THE DEMOCRATS WOULD SIT DOWN, STRAIGHTEN OUT ASYLUM WHICH IS A TOTAL MESS BUT VERY UNCOMPLICATED, STRAIGHTEN IT OUT AND GET RID OF THE LOOPHOLES IT. WOULD TAKE, JEFF, 15 MINUTES. THANK YOU. DEADLINE FOR IMPOSE. >> I HAVE NO DEADLINE. MY DEADLINE IS WHAT’S UP HERE. WE WILL FIGURE OUT THE DEADLINE. >> OKAY. >> NOBODY CAN QUITE FIGURE IT OUT. >> AND IF I COULD JUST THROW ONE YOUR WAY. YOU SAID EARLIER THAT DEMOCRACY IN POLAND WAS STRONG. NOT ALL OF YOUR EUROPEAN URINE COUNTERPARTS AGREE WITH THAT. HOW IS FORCING SUPREME COURT JUSTICES TO RETIRE EARLY CONSISTENT WITH DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES AND PRESIDENT TRUMP — IS THAT SOMETHING THAT YOU SUPPORT >> NO.>> ITS HARD TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION. WHAT IF PEOPLE — I THINK ALSO IN THE UNITED STATES DID NOT UNDERSTAND THIS PROBLEM. THEY HAVE NOT GROWN UP IN A COUNTRY SUCH AS MINE. I WAS BORN IN 1972 IN A POLAND. WRAP WHEN SOMEONEN ROLLED AS MEMBER OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY ABOUT WHO FOLLOWED THIS PEOPLE’S POWER. WHO WAS — THE SUPREME AUTHORITY AND THIS IS WHAT WAS HAPPENING FOR MANY YEARS. AS YOU KNOW A SOLIDARITY MOVEMENT GREW. PEOPLE WERE IN PRISON AND TORTURED AND KILLED DURING THE MARSHALL LAW AND AFTER AS WELL. OPENLY OR — IN A SECRET WAY. THIS IS — THIS WAS THE REALITY OF POLAND UNTIL 1999. NOW IMAGINE THAT NOT SO LONG AGO, A FEW YEARS AGO I WAS SURPRISED TO FIND THAT IN THE POLISH SUPREME COURT THERE’S A GROUP OF JUSTICE WHO WERE ISSUING SENTENCES AS JUDGES, MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY BEFORE 1990 WHO WERE EVEN PASSING SENTENCES DURING THE MARSHALL LAW, SENTENCING PEOPLE TO PRISON BASED ON THE LAW OF THE COMMUNIST MARSHALL LAW. WHEN I WAS ASKED IF THE COURT NEEDS TO BE REFORMED I SAID YES. IF POLAND IS SUPPOSED TO BE A COUNTRY WE WANT IT TO BE FOR THE CHILDREN AND THE GENERATION BORN AFTER 1999 THEN FOR GOD’S SAKE THOSE PEOPLE HAVE CAN SEE, UNFORTUNA, ALTHOUGH 30 YEARS HAVE PASSED, THEY HAVE INFLUENCE, THE INFLUENCE THEY WERE BUILDING AFTER 1989 WHERE THEY ASSUMED A NEW IDENTITY OF AN ELITE OF A NEW STATE. SO THIS INFLUENCE IS STILL STRONG. THIS IS WHAT I CAN SAY AND LET ME ASSURE YOU OF ONE THING. FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS ABSOLUTELY RESPECTED IN POLAND. THERE IS EVERYTHING THAT’S FUNCTIONING IN A NORMAL DEMOCRACY. POLICE DO NOT USE TEARGAS AGAINST PEOPLE. PEOPLE CAN EXPRESS THEY’RE NOT PLEASED WITH SOMETHING. PLEASE ASK POLISH JOURNALISTS WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME. IT DIDN’T BECAUSE IN POLAND, WE RESPECT THE RIGHT TO DEMONSTRATE AND TO EXPRESS THIS IS ONE OF THE ELEMENTS OF DEMOCRACY IN POLAND. THERE’S ABSOLUTELY FREE AND JUST ELECTIONS. ALL THE STANDARDS ARE RESPECTED. THIS GOVERNMENT HAS CERTAIN STANDARDS OF ACTION, NOT EVERYBODY SUBSCRIBES TO THOSE STANDARDS. BUT THIS IS THE NATURE OF DEMOCRACY. WHEN YOU HAVE ONE SIDE OF THE POLITICAL IN POWER, THEN PEOPLE MAKE A DIFFERENCE CHOICE, AND ANOTHER SIDE OF THE POLITICAL STAGE COMES TO POWER. THERE’S NOTHING EXTRAORDINARY ABOUT THAT AND THIS IS THE CHANGE HAPPENING IN POLAND. WHEN SOMEBODY WINS THE ELECTIONS, THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO IMPLEMENT THE PROGRAM, WHICH THEY ANNOUNCE BEFORE THE ELECTIONS, EXCUSE ME, HOWEVER, REALIZING IMPLEMENTING THE PROGRAM, WHICH I THINK IS AN OBLIGATION RESTING ON AND EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED IN POLAND.>>MR. PRESIDENT, YOU SAID JUST A MOMENT AGO THAT POLAND WILL JOIN THE VISA WAIVER PROGRAM SOON. HOW SOON?>>WE THINK FAIRLY SOON. WE’RE DOING WELL WITH IT. IT’S A COMPLEX SITUATION AS YOU KNOW. WE’RE GETTING VERY CLOSE. WE ALLOW VERY FEW COUNTRIES TO JOIN. POLAND IS ONE WE’RE THINKING ABOUT ALLOWING IN. SO WE’LL BE MAKING THAT DECISION OVER THE NEXT PROBABLY 90 DAYS.>>SIR, WILL YOU HOPE OR DO YOU THINK THAT MAYBE WHEN YOU’RE IN POLAND IN SEPTEMBER YOU’LL MAKE THE ANNOUNCEMENT?>>I THINK IT’S A VERY GOOD IDEA. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR GIVING ME THAT IDEA.>>THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.>>MR. PRESIDENT, THE VISA WAIVER PROGRAM APPEARED ON MANY OCCASIONS BUT THEN IT DID NOT COME INTO PRACTICE. HOW OPTIMISTIC ARE WE ABOUT THE WORDS BY PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP?>>I’M LOOKING AT THESE WORDS OPTIMISTIC. I’M OPTIMISTIC ABOUT THAT. I THINK THIS IS THE FIRST U.S. ADMINISTRATION WHICH HAS TREATED THIS PROBLEM IN SUCH A SERIOUS WAY AND SUCH A COMPREHENSIVE WAY. WHEN WE TALK TO THE PRESIDENT, THE PRESIDENT EXPRESSES DEEP CARE ABOUT THAT. WHEN I TALK TO THE U.S. AMBASSADOR, SHE LOOKS AT THE PROBLEM ALL THE TIME AND I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAW BINDING THE UNITED STATES BECAUSE THIS IS SOMETHING I WANT TO STRESS VERY STRONGLY, ACCORDING TO THE LONG BINDING THE UNITED STATES BY ALL THE ACTIONS NECESSARY, SUCH AS THE SIGNING OF THE AGREEMENT ON PREVENTING SERIOUS CRIMES, I BELIEVE THROUGHOUT ALL THESE SANCTIONS, THERE’S VISA WAIVER PROGRAM COVERED POLES IS GOING TO BE POSSIBLE SOON. IT CAN GOING TO BE POSSIBLE BEFORE THE END OF THE FIRST TERM OF PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU VERY MCH. [ APPLAUSE ]>>WE HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO PRESIDENT TRUMP AND PRESIDENT DUDA OF POLAND DISCUSSING A JOINT DEFENSE DECLARATION THEY’VE SIGNED. PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS POLAND WILL CONSTRUCT A FACILITY TO HOUSE A THOUSAND U.S. TROOPS. POLAND WILL PAY FOR IT ENTIRELY AND THEN THE U.S. WILL SEND THE TROOPS. POLAND HAS ALSO AGREED TO BUY MORE THAN 30 F-35 PLANES. ALL OF THIS IS FROM THE POLISH PERSPECTIVE, AN EFFORT TO FEND OFF ANY IDEAS OF RUSSIAN AGGRESSION. FROM PRESIDENT’S PERSPECTIVE, REWARDING POLAND FOR PAYING ITS FAIR SHARE OF NATO PROTECTION, WHICH IS SOMETHING THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN CRITICAL OF OTHER COUNTRIES FOR NOT DOING, NAMELY GERMANY. HE FLOATED THE IDEA OF MOVING SOME TROOPS IN GERMANY OVER TO POLAND. HE HOPED FOR A FULL ACTIVE U.S. MILITARY BASE THERE IN POLAND. CBS WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT WEIJIA JIANG WAS AT THE PROFESSOR AND JOINS US NOW. CAN YOU GIVE US MORE DETAIL INTO WHAT THE TWO LEADERS HAVE AGREED UPON TODAY?>>THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE EXPECTED, A NEW DEFENSE DEAL FOR THESE TWO COUNTRIES, NAMELY THE PURCHASE OF 32 F-35 AIRCRAFT FIGHTERS. IN FACT, THE PRESIDENT TOOK A VICTORY LAP QUITE LITERALLY EVEN BEFORE THIS PRESS CONFERENCE BECAUSE THERE WAS A FLYOVER HERE AT THE WHITE HOUSE AND WE SAW ONE OF THOSE AIRCRAFTS FLYING OVER IN A CEREMONY FOR THE PRESIDENTS AND THE FIRST LADIES HERE. THEY AGREED TO DEPLOY AN ADDITIONAL THOUSAND U.S. TROOPS TO POLAND AS YOU MENTIONED, TANYA. WHAT’S INTERESTING IS THE WHY THAT WAS NOT MENTIONED, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS PERIPHERALLY. PRESIDENT TRUMP DID NOT CLARIFY THE MESSAGE HE’S TRYING TO SEND TO RUSSIA AND TO VLADIMIR PUTIN WITH THIS DEAL. OF COURSE THE REASON WHY THIS DEAL EXISTICIZE BECAUSE POLAND AGREES THERE’S ADDITIONAL RUSSIAN AGGRESSION, NOT ONLY THAT THREATENS THEIR COUNTRY BUT IN THE REGION, ESPECIALLY SOMETHING THEY’VE BEEN MONITORING SINCE THE ANNEXATION OF CRIMEA YEARS AGO AND OF COURSE THE PRESIDENT HAS HAD SORT OF A GRAY LINE WHEN IT COMES TO THAT. IN FACT, BEFORE THEY MET IN HELSINKI, THE PRESIDENT REFUSED TO ANSWER WHETHER OR NOT IT WAS PART OF POLICY THAT IT WAS PART OF RUSSIA OR UKRAINE. ALL THAT TO SAY THE PRESIDENT WAS NOT TOUGH ON RUSSIA, NOT TALKING ABOUT THE NEED TO BEEF UP SECURITY IN THE REGION BECAUSE OF HEIGHTENED SECURITY. THE TWO ALSO TALKED ABOUT ENTERING POLAND INTO THE VISA WAIVER PROGRAM WHICH WOULD ALLOW PEOPLE FROM POLAND TO TRAVEL HERE WITHOUT A VISA. THE PRESIDENT SAID HE’D BE MAKING A DECISION ON THAT FRONT IN THE NEXT 90 DAYS OR SO.>>IT’S INTERESTING HE DID NOT COME DOWN MORE HARSHLY ON RUSSIA. HE EVEN SAID I STILL HOPE FOR A GOOD RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN POLAND AND RUSSIA, A GOOD RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE U.S. AND RUSSIA. RUSSIA HAS BEEN INCREASING ITS PRESENCE IN CRIMEA, HAS IT NOT?>>EXACTLY. IT HAS BEEN INCREASING ITS OWN MILITARY THERE WITH WEAPONS AS WELL AS TROOPS AND THAT IS WHY THERE’S CONCERN THERE ABOUT WHY THEY’RE DOING THAT AND THAT’S SOMETHING PRESIDENT TRUMP DID NOT ADDRESS DIRECTLY. BE MEETING FACE-TO-FACE WITH PUTIN AT THE END OF THIS MONTH. SO WE’LL BE WAITING TO SEE WHAT SORT OF MESSAGE HE DELIVERS AFTER STRIKING THIS DEAL WITH POLAND AND OF COURSE WHEN IT COMES TO MEDDLING IN THE U.S. ELECTIONS. THE PRESIDENT ALSO TALKED ABOUT OTHER ISSUES. NORTH KOREA, TRADE, ENCOMPASSING BOTH MEXICO AND CHINA. SO THERE WAS SOME NEWS. HE SAID AGAIN THAT HE IS CONSIDERING A POSSIBLE MEETING WITH KIM JONG UN. HE REFUSED TO SAY WHETHER HE COMMITTED THAT THE U.S. WOULD NOT SPY ON KOREA AS HE IMPLIED YESTERDAY. HE SAID THAT’S NOT WHAT HE MEANT. REMEMBER, WHEN HE’S SPEAKING ABOUT NORTH KOREA, HE’S SAYING HE KNOWS SHE’S SPEAKING DIRECTLY TO KIM JONG UN AND THERE’S A POSSIBILITY THOSE TWO LEADERS WILL MEET WHEN THE PRESIDENT TRAVELS TO SOUTH KOREA LATER THIS MONTH AS WELL, AFTER THE G-20 SUMMIT.>>A LOVELY LETTER, HE REFERRED TO, BUT HE WOULD NOT DISCLOSE THE CONTENTS OF THAT LETTER.>>HE SAID HE RECEIVED THIS, QUOTE, BEAUTIFUL LETTER YESTERDAY. IT’S ONE OF MANY BEAUTIFUL LETTERS KIM JONG UN HAS APPARENTLY WRITTEN TO PRESIDENT TRUMP WHO SAYS WE MIGHT FIND OUT IN TWO WEEKS WHAT IT SAID, WE MIGHT FIND OUT IN 100 YEARS WHAT IT SAID. HERE’S WHAT IT PROBABLY DID NOT SAY, HOW IT PLANS TO GIVE UP ITS EXISTING NUCLEAR WEAPONS. THAT’S THE BIG QUESTION WE ASK OVER AND OVER. WHAT’S KEEPING PRESIDENT TRUMP AT THE NEGOTIATING TABLE IF HE’S NOT SHOWN EVIDENCE HE’S ACTUALLY DISMANTLING THOSE WEAPONS? TODAY HE REPEATED AGAIN THAT KIM HAS KEPT HIS PROMISE NOT TO DO TESTING ON INTERBALLISTIC WEAPONS. SHOWING GOOD FAITH IN KIM JONG UN AHEAD OF THE POSSIBILITY THEY MEET IN JUST A COUPLE WEEKS.>>I JUST WANT TO ASK YOU QUICKLY ABOUT ONE COUNTRY THAT KEPT COMING UP. GERMANY. IT SEEMS PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS ALSO EAGER TO SEND A MESSAGE TO GERMANY TODAY AND WHAT WAS THAT MESSAGE?>>SINCE PRESIDENT TRUMP TOOK OFFICE, EVEN BEFOREHAND, HE HAS BEEN VERY TOUGH ON NATO AND SPECIFICALLY ON THE COUNTRIES IN NATO AND HOW MUCH THEY SPEND. HE’S BEEN PARTICULARLY CRITICAL OF GERMANY FOR NOT TRIBUTING THE 2% OF ITS GDP AND THAT’S WHY AGAIN TODAY HE’S SAID THEY NEED TO DO MORE, THEY NEED TO BE PAYING MORE. SO WHEN THE DISCUSSION CAME UP ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF MOVING TROOPS TO POLAND, HE WAS ASKED DO YOU THINK THAT WILL BE ENOUGH TO PUT MORE PRESSURE ON GERMANY WHEN IT COMES TO DEFENSE SPENDING? AND HE SAID NO. HE’S MADE IT KNOWN HOW HE FEELS ABOUT THAT SPENDING, WHAT STEP HE MIGHT TRY TO TAKE TO CONTROL IT.>>WE’RE GOING TO TAKE A QUICK BREAK NOW. YOU’RE STREAMING CBSN.>>>DONALD TRUMP, JR. HAS FINISHED TESTIFYING BEFORE THE SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE. THIS WAS HIS SECOND APPEARANCE BEFORE THE PANEL. HIS FIRST WAS IN 2017. YOU’LL RECALL THE COMMITTEE SUBPOENAED TRUMP, JR. AFTER A BACK AND FORTH, HE EVENTUALLY AGREED TO COME IN. TODAY DON, JR. SAID HE HAD NOTHING TO CORRECT FROM HIS PREVIOUS TESTIMONY.>>NOTHING NEEDED TO CHANGE. IF THERE NEEDED TO BE CLARIFICATION BECAUSE MICHAEL COHEN, WHO LETS NOT FORGET IS SERVING TIME RIGHT NOW FOR LYING TO THESE VERY INVESTIGATIVE BODIES, I’M HAPPY TO DO THAT. I DON’T THINK I CHANGED ANYTHING OF WHAT I SAID BECAUSE THERE WAS NOTHING TO CHANGE. I’M GLAD THAT THIS IS FINALLY OVER, WE’RE ABLE TO PUT SOME FINAL CLARITY ON THAT AND I THINK THE COMMITTEE UNDERSTANDS THAT.>>CBS NEWS CHIEF CONGRESSIONAL CORRESPONDENT NANCY CORDES IS ON CAPITOL HILL. HI. WHAT WAS THE SCOPE OF THE QUESTIONING JUNIOR FACED TODAY?>>I CAN TELL YOU WHAT WE ASSUMED THE SCOPE OF THE QUESTIONING WAS BUT WE DON’T KNOW FOR SURE BECAUSE IT WAS A CLOSED DOOR HEARING AND WE WILL NOT GET A TRANSCRIPT OF WHAT TOOK PLACE, POSSIBLY FOR MONTHS, POSSIBLY NEVER. WE UNDERSTAND THE REASON DONALD TRUMP, JR. WAS ASKED TO COME BACK AND TESTIFY AGAIN, AFTER FIRST TESTIFYING BACK IN 2017, IT’S BECAUSE THERE WERE SOME DISCREPANCIES IN WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT A FEW KEY ASPECTS OF HIS FAMILY AND HIS BUSINESS INVOLVEMENTS WITH RUSSIA AND WHAT OTHER WITNESSES HAVE SAID TO VARIOUS COMMITTEES HERE ON CAPITOL HILL. THIS COMMITTEE, THE SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE, RUN BY A REPUBLICAN, RICHARD BURR OF NORTH CAROLINA, ASKED HIM TO COME BACK AND TESTIFY. AND AS YOU MENTIONED, HE DIDN’T REALLY WANT TO DO THAT. THERE WERE CONCERNS THAT PERHAPS HE COULD GET HIMSELF IN HOT WATER IF HE CHANGED HIS ANSWERS. POSSIBLY GET HIMSELF IN HOT WATER IF HE DIDN’T CHANGE HIS ANSWERS. BUT HE WAS IN THAT HEARING FOR SEVERAL HOURS AND WHAT YOU PLAYED IS WHAT HE SAID WHEN HE CAME OUT. WE STILL HAVEN’T HEARD FROM THE SENATORS ABOUT WHAT HE SAID. FRANKLY THIS IS A COMMITTEE THAT’S GENERALLY PRETTY TIGHTLIPPED SO WE DON’T KNOW IF WE’LL LEARN ANYTHING FROM THEM ABOUT WHAT HE SAID.>>YOU MENTIONED THOSE DISCREPANCIES. THERE WERE QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER HE FACED THE RISK OF PERJURING HIMSELF. WAS DON, JR. CONCERNED ABOUT THAT?>>I ASKED HIM THAT VERY QUESTION AS HE WAS WALKING AWAY FROM US. ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT PERJURY CHARGES? HE SAID HE IS NOT. HOWEVER, WHAT WE KNOW FROM TALKING TO HIS TEAM, PEOPLE FROM HIS TEAM, FOLKS IN HIS INNER CIRCLE, THERE WAS SOME DEBATE ABOUT WHETHER HE SHOULD TRY TO HOLD OUT AND AVOID TESTIFYING ONCE AGAIN OR GO AHEAD AND DO IT. HIS FATHER, THE PRESIDENT, HAS SAID REPEATEDLY THAT HE THINKS IT’S VERY UNFAIR THAT HIS SON WAS CALLED BACK INTO TESTIFY, THAT HE’S A GREAT PERSON AND THAT HE DOESN’T HAVE ANYTHING TO EXPLAIN AND AS HE JUST REPEATED IN THE PRESS AVAILABILITY HE HELD AT THE WHITE HOUSE, HE THINKS THE ENTIRE MUELLER INVESTIGATION WAS A BIG NOTHING BURGER AS DONALD TRUMP, JR. HIMSELF IS FOND OF SAYING.>>SWITCHING GEARS A LITTLE BIT, WE KNOW THE WHITE HOUSE HAS INVOKED EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE OVER MATERIALS RELATED TO THE ADMINISTRATION’S PUSH TO ADD A CITIZENSHIP QUESTION TO THE 2020 CENSUS. THE HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE WANTED THOSE DOCUMENTS FROM THE JUSTICE AND COMMERCE DEPARTMENTS, BUT IT NOW DOESN’T APPEAR THEY WILL GET THEM. PLEASE REMIND US WHY THESE DOCUMENTS ARE SIGNIFICANT AND WHAT HAPPENS NOW.>>THIS IS ONE OF THE KEY INVESTIGATIONS THAT THE HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE HAS UNDERTAKEN. THIS IS THE COMMITTEE THAT BASICALLY ACTS AS SOMETHING OF A WATCHDOG OVER THE ADMINISTRATION AND THE COMMITTEE CHAIR, ELIJAH CUMMINGS, AND MANY DEMOCRATS, ARE VERY KEEN TO UNCOVER WHY EXACTLY THE COMMERCE DEPARTMENT ADDED FOR A TIME A QUESTION TO THE UPCOMING U.S. CENSUS ABOUT CITIZENSHIP. THEY BELIEVE THE COMMERCE DEPARTMENT WAS ACTUALLY ACTING AT THE BIDDING OF WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS WHO WANTED TO ASK THAT QUESTION FOR POLITICAL REASONS. AND DEMOCRATS SUSPECT TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR THIS PARTICULAR ADMINISTRATION TO ROUND UP PEOPLE WHO MIGHT NOT BE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES. SO THEY WANT TO SEE E-MAILS. THEY WANT TO SEE DOCUMENTS. THEY WANT TO SEE A PAPER TRAIL BECAUSE THE COMMERCE DEPARTMENT HAS SAID ACTUALLY IT WAS THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT THAT ASKED FOR THIS TO BE ADDED TO THE CENSUS. DEMOCRATS DON’T THINK THAT’S THE CASE. THEY’VE PUT OUT THIS BLANKET REQUEST FOR ALL KINDS OF DOCUMENTS RELATED TO THIS QUESTION AND THEY SAY THEY’VE BEEN STONEWALLED. THEY WERE ALL SET TO HOLD BOTH THE SECRETARY OF COMMERCE AND ATTORNEY GENERAL IN CONTEMPT TO TAKE A VOTE. THEY’VE POSTPONED THE VOTE BECAUSE OF THE BACK AND FORTH WITH THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT. THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT SAYING HEY, YOU DIDN’T EVEN GIVE US ENOUGH TIME TO NEGOTIATE WITH YOU OVER WHAT DOCUMENTS WE WOULD GIVE YOU, WHICH DOCUMENTS WE WOULDN’T. SO THE VOTE HAS BEEN POSTPONED BY A FEW HOURS TO SEE IF DOJ CAN REALLY PRODUCE ANYTHING THAT WOULD SATISFY DEMOCRATS, IF NOT, THE VOTE WILL TAKE PLACE THIS AFTERNOON.>>DEMOCRATS BELIEVE THE CENSUS QUESTION IS A POLITICAL MOVE ON THE APARTMENT OF THE ADMINISTRATION, CORRECT?>>RIGHT. THEY BELIEVE THIS IS AN ADMINISTRATION THAT HAD IT OUT FOR IMMIGRANTS OF ALL STRIPES BEFORE THE PRESIDENT TOOK OFFICE. THEY SAY THAT WAS EXEMPLIFIED BY SOME OF HIS COMMENTS ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL AND THEY BELIEVE HE AND HIS CLOSE ADVISORS WERE PUSHING TO THIS CHANGE TO THE CENSUS EVEN BEFORE THE PRESIDENT OFFICIALLY TOOK OFFICE AND THAT’S WHAT THEY’RE HOPING TO FIND EVIDENCE OF IN THESE E-MAILS, THESE DOCUMENTS, IF THEY CAN EVER GET THEIR HANDS ON THEM. IT’S GOING TO BE MORE DIFFICULT NOW THAT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IS SAYING THE PRESIDENT HAS EXERTED EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE OVER ANOTHER LARGE CACHE OF DOCUMENTS.>>THE PRESIDENT ALSO COMMENTED ON THE CENSUS ISSUE TODAY AND HERE’S WHAT HE SAID.>>I THINK — AND I’M NOT OVERLY INVOLVED IN THAT. THAT’S REALLY A LEGAL MATTER. I THINK WHEN YOU HAVE A CENSUS AND YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO TALK ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT SOMEBODY IS A CITIZEN OR NOT, THAT DOESN’T SOUND SO GOOD TO ME. CAN YOU IMAGINE? YOU SEND OUT A CENSUS AND YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO SAY WHETHER OR NOT A PERSON IS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN. IN POLAND, THEY’D SAY THEY’RE EITHER POLISH OR THEY’RE NOT. I DON’T WANT TO GET YOU INTO THIS BATTLE BUT IT’S RIDICULOUS. I THINK IT’S TOTALLY RIDICULOUS THAT WE’D HAVE A CENSUS WITHOUT ASKING BUT THE SUPREME COURT IS GOING TO BE RULING ON IT SOON. I THINK WHEN THE CENSUS GOES OUT, YOU FIND OUT WHETHER OR NOT AND YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO ASK WHETHER OR NOT SOMEBODY IS A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES.>>ULTIMATELY THIS IS A FIGHT THAT WON’T GET RESOLVED UNTIL THE SUPREME COURT WEIGHS IN, WHICH IT’S SET TO DO SHORTLY. CORRECT?>>THAT’S CORRECT. THERE’S GOING TO BE A POLITICAL DEBATE THAT REMAINS. DEMOCRATS WILL SAY THAT QUESTION IN AND OF ITSELF IS AN INTIMIDATION TACTIC MEANT TO MAKE EVEN LEGAL IMMIGRANTS FEEL SOMEHOW THREATENED, MAKE THEM FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE, AND YOU’LL HAVE AN ADMINISTRATION ARGUING AS THE PRESIDENT JUST DID THAT THE U.S. HAS EVERY RIGHT TO KNOW HOW MANY UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS ARE LIVING WITHIN ITS BORDERS, AND HE SAYS THAT’S NOT A STRANGE OR UNUSUAL QUESTION AT ALL.>>NANCY CORDES IN WASHINGTON. WE THANK YOU.>>>PRESIDENT TRUMP AND FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN HELD SIMULTANEOUS RALLIED IN IOWA WITH BOTH CAMPAIGNING LIKE IT’S ALREADY 2020. THE TWO TRADED ATTACKS IN WHAT COULD BE A PREVIEW OF A CONTENTIOUS PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION SHOULD BIDEN SECURE THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE SLOT. HERE’S SOME OF WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY ABOUT EACH OTHER.>>I BELIEVE THAT THE PRESIDENT IS LITERALLY AN EXTENTIAL THREAT TO AMERICAN.>>I’D RATHER RUN AGAINST I THINK BIDEN THAN ANYBODY. I THINK HE’S THE WEAKEST MENTALLY. SLEEPY JOE. HE WAS SOME PLACE IN IOWA TODAY AND HE SAID MY NAME SO MANY TIMES, PEOPLE COULDN’T STAND IT ANYMORE.>>THIS IS A GUY WHO DOES EVERYTHING TO SEPARATE AND FRIGHTEN PEOPLE.>>JOE BIDEN THOUGHT THAT CHINA WAS NOT A COMPETITOR OF OURS. JOE BIDEN IS A DUMMY.>>IOWA FARMERS HAVE BEEN CRUSHED BY HIS TARIFF WAR WITH CHINA.>>ALAINA SCHNEIDER IS NATIONAL POLITICAL REPORTER AT POLITICO. SHE JOINS ME FROM ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA. JOE BIDEN MAY WANT TO COMPETE AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP BUT HE STILL HAS TO FEND OFF 23 OTHER DEMOCRATS. WHAT’S THE RATIONALE BEHIND FOCUSSING ON THE PRESIDENT HERE?>>I THINK BOTH TRUMP AND BIDEN SEE THIS AS POLITICALLY ADVANTAGEOUS TO THEM TO GO AHEAD AND FOCUS ON THE GENERAL ELECTION. FOR BIDEN, IT’S A MATTER OF IGNORING THOSE MORE LIBERAL CANDIDATES OR LESSER KNOWN CANDIDATES THAT MIGHT PULL HIM TO THE LEFT ON A NUMBER OF ISSUES THAT HE DOESN’T NECESSARILY WANT TO ADDRESS OR BE POINTED OUT, MAYBE THAT HE’S NOT AS PROGRESSIVE ON. IN THE CONTEXT FOR TRUMP, HE’S ALREADY STARTING TO ROLL OUT SIMILAR ATTACKS AGAINST BIDEN THAT HE USED DURING 2016, ALREADY TALKING ABOUT HOW BIDEN IS RELATED TO CROOKED HILLARY IN HIS WORDS. I THINK HE’S REALLY TRYING TO USE THIS ALREADY AS A MEANS TO SPEED AHEAD AND USE LINES OF ATTACK THAT WORKED IN 2016 THAT HE HOPES AGAIN WILL WORK IN 2020.>>TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN MANAGER TOLD CBS NEWS PRESIDENT TRUMP IS FIERY THIS MORNING OVER WHAT HIS CAMPAIGN BELIEVES ARE UNFAIR POLLS SHOWING HIM TRAILING SIX DEMOCRATS NATIONALLY. HERE’S HOW HE ADDRESSED THOSE POLLS AT THE WHITE HOUSE TODAY.>>WE HAVE GREAT INTERNAL POLLING. THERE WERE FAKE POLLS RELEASED BY SOMEBODY THAT IT’S RIDICULOUS. WE ARE WINNING IN EVERY SINGLE STATE THAT WE’VE POLLED. WE’RE WINNING IN TEXAS VERY BIG. WE’RE WINNING IN OHIO VERY BIG. WE’RE WINNING IN FLORIDA VERY BIG. THERE WERE FAKE POLLS EITHER PUT OUT BY THE CORRUPT MEDIA, AS MUCH OF THE MEDIA IN THIS COUNTRY UNFORTUNATELY IS CORRUPT. I HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT, MR. PRESIDENT. SOME OF IT IS EXCELLENT BUT SOME OF IT IS VERY BAD. YOU’RE GOING TO SEE THAT ON ELECTION DAY.>>HOW SERIOUSLY SHOULD THE PUBLIC TAKE THESE KINDS OF POLLS THIS FAR OUT?>>POLLING THIS FAR OUT IS GOING TO BE VERY FLUID. WE’RE GOING TO SEE IT SHIFT AND CHANGE OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS. EVEN AMONGST THESE PRIMARY CANDIDATES, THOSE POLLS ARE GOING TO CHANGE. POLLS ARE A SNAPSHOT FOR WHERE THE ELECTORATE IS IN THIS MOMENT IN TIME. AS MUCH AS HE’D LIKE TO DISMISS, TRAILING PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES ALREADY IN KEY BATTLEGROUND STATES, THAT MEANS HE’S PROBABLY NOT DOING AS WELL IN THOSE PLACES. IT’S A WARNING FOR HIM AND ONE HE DOESN’T NECESSARILY PUBLICALLY LIKE TO ACKNOWLEDGE BUT CERTAINLY PRIVATELY, SOMETHING THEY’RE TAKING VERY SERIOUSLY AND SOMETHING DEMOCRATS ARE QUITE EXCITED ABOUT.>>THERE IS A CLIP I’D LIKE TO PLAY FROM KAMALA HARRIS TALKING ABOUT HOW SHE’D PROSECUTE TRUMP IF SHE’S ELECTED INTO THE WHITE HOUSE.>>YOU’VE BEEN VERY CLEAR YOU WANT IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS TO BEGIN. WOULD YOU WANT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, NOW THAT HE’S NO LONGER A SITTING PRESIDENT, TO GO FORWARD WITH THOSE OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE CHARGES?>>I BELIEVE THEY WOULD HAVE NO CHOICE AND THAT THEY SHOULD. YES. THERE HAS TO BE ACCOUNTABILITY. LOOK, PEOPLE MIGHT QUESTION WHY I BECAME A PROSECUTOR. I’LL TELL YOU. ONE OF THE REASONS, I BELIEVE THERE SHOULD BE ACCOUNTABILITY. EVERYBODY SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE AND THE PRESIDENT IS NOT ABOVE THE LAW.>>PRESIDENT OBAMA DECLINED TO PROSECUTE MEMBERS OF THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION OVER THE IRAQ WAR EVEN THOUGH A LOT OF DEMOCRATS WERE CALLING FOR THAT. HOW BIG OF A BREAK FROM TRADITION WOULD THIS BE?>>I THINK IT’S CERTAINLY A BREAK FROM TRADITION BUT ONE THAT HARRIS WILLINGLY AND WANTS TO MAKE, IN PART BECAUSE THIS IS NEW FOR LIBERAL VOTERS WHO WANT TO SEE THIS PRESIDENT PROSECUTED IN SOME FORM. THEY WANT TO SEE HIM BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE IN THE WORDS OF KAMALA HARRIS. LEANING ON HER OWN PROSECUTORIAL CREDENTIALS SHE SAID, AND POINT OUT I’M WILLING TO GO FURTHER IN ADDRESSING THESE CONCERNS AROUND THIS PRESIDENT THAN SOME OF HER PRIMARY OPPONENTS ARE WILLING TO SAY AS OF YET. IT’S ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HOW FAR SHE’S SAYING SHE’S WILLING TO GO TO HOLD THIS PRESIDENT ACCOUNT NL.>>WE’RE ALSO GETTING A NEW POLL FROM THE EARLY PRIMARY STATE OF NEVADA TODAY. JOE BIDEN LEADS THE PACK WITH 36% AND ELIZABETH WARREN HAS JUMPED INTO SECOND WITH 19%. ARE WE SEEING HER MOVE PAST BERNIE SANDERS IN THE HORSE RACE?>>NEVADA IS A PARTICULARLY DIFFICULT STATE TO POLL BUT I DO THINK THESE ARE NUMBERS SHE AND HER TEAM ARE INCREDIBLY EXCITED ABOUT IN PART BECAUSE IT’S SHOWING THE MOMENTUM WARREN HAS BEEN ABLE TO LEAPFROG OVER BERNIE SANDERS IN AT LEAST ONE OF THESE EARLY STATES. IT’S STILL FLUID AND THESE POLL NUMBERS ARE STILL GOING TO MOVE, BUT IT’S A REFLECTION OF THE ENERGY SHE’S BEEN ABLE TO BUILD OUT PARTICULARLY IN THE LAST COUPLE MONTHS. RALLYING AROUND THIS IDEA THAT WARREN’S GOT A PLAN. AND THAT’S ONE SHE’S BEEN ABLE TO LEAN INTO AND DRAW SOME CONTRAST AND DIFFERENCE FROM BERNIE SANDERS.>>WE THANK YOU.>>A QUICK PROGRAMMING NOTE. MY COLLEAGUE ELAINE QUIJANO WILL SPEAK WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA’S FORMER FAITH OUTREACH DIRECTOR. HE THINKS JOE BIDEN MADE A MISTAKE WHEN HE REVERSED HIS STANCE ON THE HYDE AMENDMENT. THAT’S AT 5:00 P.M.

OFFICIALS THOUGHT JUST TWO PEOPLE WERE INVOLVED IN THE INCIDENT. THIS COMES HOURS AFTER POLICE MADE A SECOND ARREST IN CONNECTION WITH THE SHOOTING. THE INVESTIGATION INTO A MOTIVE FOR THE ATTACK IS STILL UNCLEAR. CBS NEWS CORRESPONDENT MOLA LENGHI IS IN SANTO DOMINGO WITH THE LATEST.>>POLICE HAVE DETAINED AT LEAST FIVE PEOPLE FOR QUESTIONING SINCE SUNDAY’S SHOOTING. THAT HAPPENED RIGHT HERE AT THE DIAL BAR AND LOUNGE IN THE ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT OF SANTA DOMINGO. ORTIZ WAS SITTING RIGHT HERE ON THIS PATIO DECK WHEN THE MOTORCYCLIST APPROACHED. THE GUNMAN HOPPED OFF. APPROACHED ORTIZ AND SHOT HIM IN THE BACK. POLICE ARE STILL INVESTIGATING WHETHER ORTIZ WAS THE INTENDED TARGET OF THE SHOOTING. THE FIRST SUSPECT WAS TRANSFERRED TO COURT IN SANTO DOMINGO YESTERDAY. POLICE SAY EDDIE GARCIA WAS THE MOTORCYCLIST WHO BROUGHT THE SHOOTER TO ORTIZ. HE CHARGED AS AN ACCOMPLICE TO AN ATTEMPTED MURDER. GARCIA’S LAWYER SAID HE DID NOT KNOW WHAT HE WAS ABOUT TO TAKE THE SHOOTER TO WHEN HE PICKED THE SHOOTER OFF. IN BOSTON, ORTIZ TOOK HIS FIRST STEPS IN THE HOSPITAL WHERE HE’S RECOVERING WITH THE HELP OF HIS FAMILY.

  • wow , he talks with emphasis and points with the fingers
    everything hes saying must be truth
    oh God , what are the limits of dumbness ?

  • Trump is using a combination of executive privilege and our own judicial system to block the Femocrats from doing anything ….. Brilliant 👍 And he can do it because he’s NOT a career politician.

  • Elizabeth Warren 2020. Pete Buttigieg wants to politicize the Supreme Court and add justices. Unconstitutional!!!

  • old farts in office yet nothing gets done enough white power in some other dimension hilary won i got russian nuclear bomb dam

  • Bernie yes you are right millions live under poverty, but since Trump has been in office 7 million less people need the equivalent of food stamps. Also for previous two administrations showed no positive real income advancement.

  • Yes Bernie Fairfax, VA. has higher income and longer life spans. Many of these people are lobbyist and lawyers. Most of the Democrat House of Representatives and Senators are lawyers that live outside Washington, D.C.. Bernie you are good at throwing out numbers with no prospective of reality and history.

    Die ganze weld besteht wegen der kompletten Politik nur aus Krieg egal aus welchen Ländern Politiker sind nur herschsüchtig und kriegmacher

  • Familienhunde Hamburg says:

    Wozu wollt ihr alten Säcke den noch Krieg und macht wen eure alten Körper eh in den nächsten 10 Jahren zerfallen

  • Familienhunde Hamburg says:

    Ich hoffe das eine Umweltkatastrophe kommt die alle zusammenschweisst und davon ablenkt nur an krieg zu denken das mein größter Wunsch auch wenn es skurril klingt

  • Sabine Around the World says:

    Has Mexico paid for the Wall, yet? It's two and half years later. Do we have Healthcare for all, with preexisting conditions, just wondering. When will the country unite, instead of being the most devided since the Civil War. Will our President address Russia about their election interference, taking away America's right to choose our own President. Will our President make any deals with North Korea, China, Iran, the Middle East etc, instead of having useless visits with them costing many millions of our dollars for nothing. He seems to be juggling all these deals in the air, nice job, but where are the deals landing, in the end. Trump is all talk and no action from day one. Viva the Democrats. One of them will have to clean up the mess just like Obama did after Bush. Time flies.

  • Hey Bernie when does the living wage not become living wage? When you raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour it's going to cost $25 to buy a freaking Big Mac and $40 to buy a gallon of gas so it really doesn't matter what the minimum wage is because everything is going to go up like crazy do you want a phucking pay 40 bucks for a Big Mac? Come on Bernie you know this is b*****

  • Boyd Gilbreath says:

    It's Trump pretending to be a President who knows anything about diplomacy. Trying to make up in a few minutes for two and a half years of merely being extremely offensive to the world and losing billions and billions of dollars for our country. Nope, nobody cares , nobody is fooled. Trump is fooled into thinking there are no intelligent people in this country. So obvious, so weak, so fake, pathetic!

  • Old hack talking trash and selling snake oil I wonder why he never went back to China if he liked those food lines so much lol

  • We are standing firm behind Donald.

  • Whoever set up the uplighting for these shots gave us a whole new perspective on the face of DJT. His heavily sprayed-down hair cantilever also takes on a new look, defying both gravity and the light breeze. Meanwhile the President of Poland, Andrzej Duda, only 47 years old, has hair that cannot compete with Don's. In 25 years, when he gets to Don's current age, he will probably be completely bald, just like Russian superstar Gorbachev.

  • WWIII is on its way. Donald and the Republicans want to see this country burn. Along with the rest of the world. China & Russia are now in position to take control of the world, with help from trump and the Republicans. The fall of American, the day democracy died 11/04/16.

  • Taking information from a foreign government. How is that NOT conspiracy? If this isn't enough, WHAT WILL IT TAKE?

  • kasia chalupek says:

    I wonder why President Duda did his speech in the Polish instead of English language. He speaks very well in the English language. President Duda you are a well-spoken gentleman. Next time make sure that everybody knows that Poland and polish people are lovely.

  • Brooke & Jody Hayes says:

    THANK GOD we got to hear part of an intelligent speech first instead of Trump's usual nonsensical ramblings.

    #BERNIESANDERS2020 Now that's what a real President sounds like!!! 🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲👏👏👏👏

  • Trumpp sends US troops to help Poland – a new war? The world is in danger. First Trump sends troops to stop Iran and now he sends troops in the wrong direction to stop Russia but the problem is Iran. Does not Iran attack ships in the oil region today?

  • tarrasteno ⵜⴰⵔⵔⴰⵙⵜⵉⵏⵓ says:

    Trump is trying to milk Poland like Saudi Arabia by pushing the Poles to buy more US weapons and gas !!!!

  • Trump does not believe the polls because he sat down with the president of Poland and he never said anything about it

  • Duda is not a respectable president – he is a puppet in hands of one insignificant person who keeps internal politica war in Poland.

  • Jordan Policicchio says:

    I wish Trump was my president. Justine Trudeau makes my great country a laughing stock but I assure you he does not represent our people. Come October I have faith we will take our country back just like our strong American brothers to the south. God bless President Trump!!

  • Leuze Michael says:

    the North Stream 2 can nobody Stop.
    no matters what Trump and Duda say and want.
    It is the best solution for Germany.
    Duda can Call Trump and they can Cry together like Babys but Germany will Never Stop it.
    It is our right.

  • God bless United States of America 🇺🇸, President Trump, and Duda.
