Trump backs Israel in denying Omar, Tlaib entry


HANDS. BEFORE WE HAVE PRESIDENT TRUMP, LEAVING THE WHITE HOUSE MAKING A FEW REMARKS.>>President Trump: WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A LONG PERIOD OF WEALTH AND SUCCESS. AS YOU KNOW, CHINA IS DOING VERY POORLY. THE TARIFFS HAVE REALLY BITTEN INTO CHINA. EXCEPT FOR THE REPORTERS WHO WANT TO MAKE IT LOOK THAT WAY, BUT THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT’S HAPPENING. THE TARIFFS, WE’VE TAKEN IN CLOSE TO $60 BILLION IN TARIFF MONEY. THE CONSUMER HAS NOT PAID FOR IT. NOW, AT SOME POINT, THEY MIGHT HAVE TO PAY SOMETHING. WHO REALLY UNDERSTANDS THAT IS OUR GREAT FARMER, THE FARMERS OF THIS COUNTRY REALLY UNDERSTAND THAT WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT CHINA AND WE ARE DOING SOM ABOUT CHINA AND WE ARE DOING SOT ABOUT CHINA AND WE ARE DOING SOI ABOUT CHINA AND WE ARE DOING SOG ABOUT CHINA AND WE ARE DOING SOA ABOUT CHINA AND WE ARE DOING SOO ABOUT CHINA AND WE ARE DOING SOT CHINA. WITH THAT BEING SAID, I THINK WE ARE HAVING VERY GOOD DISCUSSIONS WITH CHINA. THEY VERY MUCH WANT TO MAKE A DEAL. WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. WE MADE A DEAL AND THEY DECIDED NOT TO MAKE IT. NOW I THINK THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY AGAIN. I THINK THEY REALLY MISSED THE GREAT OPPORTUNITY. I THINK THEY FEEL THAT THEY MADE A MISSED A GREAT OPPORTUNITY.>> >>President Trump: I’M OL>> >>President Trump: I’M OY INVOLVED FROM THE STANDPOINT THAT THEY ARE VERY ANTI-JEWISH A THAT THEY ARE VERY ANTI-JEWISH D THAT THEY ARE VERY ANTI-JEWISH T THAT THEY ARE VERY ANTI-JEWISH E THAT THEY ARE VERY ANTI-JEWISH Y THAT THEY ARE VERY ANTI-JEWISH A THAT THEY ARE VERY ANTI-JEWISH E THAT THEY ARE VERY ANTI-JEWISH V THAT THEY ARE VERY ANTI-JEWISH R THAT THEY ARE VERY ANTI-JEWISH Y ANTI-ISRAEL. I THINK IT’S DISGRACEFUL THE THINGS THEY’VE SAID. THIS IS NOT JUST A ONE LINE MISTAKE. WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT ISRAEL AND JEWISH PEOPLE IS A HORRIBLE THING, AND THEY’VE BECOME THE FACE OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY. SO I DID ABSOLUTELY PUT OUT A VERY STRONG STATEMENT. I THINK IF YOU LOOK AT THEIR LANGUAGE, IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT THEY’VE SAID, IF I EVER SAID IT, IT WOULD BE A HORRIBLE, IT WOULD BE A HORRIBLE MONTH, TO PUT IT MILDLY. THE THINGS THAT THEY’VE SAID, OMAR, KHALID. I CAN’T IMAGINE WHY ISRAEL WOULD LET THE MEN, BUT IF THEY WANT TO LET THE MEN, THEY CAN, BUT I CAN’T IMAGINE WHY THEY WOULD DO IT.>>DO YOU WORRIED THAT A TRADE WAR WILL PITCH THE ECONOMY INTO A RECESSION?>>President Trump: NO. BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF DOLLAR DOLLARS. I THINK THE LONGER IT GOES, THE STRONGER WE GET. I HAVE A FEELING IT’S GOING TO BE, CHINA HAS LOST MILLIONS OF JOBS. THOUSANDS OF COMPANIES ARE CLOSING IN CHINA. I DON’T KNOW. MAYBE THEY WANT TO DO THIS. THEY’D LOVE TO HAVE SOMEONE LIKE BIDEN, WHO DOESN’T KNOW WHAT HE’S DOING. HE SAID, OH, WE WANT TO BUILD UP CHINA. WE WANT TO BUILD UP CHINA. THEY GIVE US A VERY STRONG CHINA. CHINA HAS TAKEN OVER $500 BILLION A YEAR FOR MANY YEARS FROM OUR GOVERNMENT. THAT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN ANYMORE.>>HOW CONCERNED ARE YOU ABOUT A VIOLENT CRACKDOWN BY THE CHINESE IN HONG KONG?>>President Trump: I AM CONCERNED. I PUT A METAL OUT LAST NIGHT. I SAID THAT I GET ALONG WITH HIM VERY WELL. PRESIDENT XI. IF HE SAT DOWN WITH THE PROTESTERS, A GROUP OF REPRESENTATIVE PROTESTERS, I BET HE’D WORK IT OUT IN 15 MINUTES. I BET HE’D WORK IT OUT VERY QUICKLY. I KNOW IT’S NOT THE KIND OF THING HE DOES, BUT I DON’T THINK IT WOULD BE A BAD IDEA. I REALLY BELIEVE THAT IF HE GOT DOWN, HAD A LEADERSHIP ROLE, IF HE SHOULD DOMINIC SAT DOWN WITH THAT LEADERSHIP ROLE, I BELIEVE HE’D WORK SOMETHING OUT VERY QUI HE’D WORK SOMETHING OUT VERY QUK HE’D WORK SOMETHING OUT VERY QUY HE’D WORK SOMETHING OUT VERY QU. I DON’T WANT TO COMMENT ABOUT WHO I SPOKE TO, BUT I THINK MY SOCIAL MEDIA STATEMENT PRETTY WELL SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. I FEEL THAT THEY ARE SO ANTI-ISRAEL, SO ANTI-JEWISH. AGAIN, IF OTHER PEOPLE MADE THAT STATEMENT, THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN HELL TO PAY. BUT I DID SPEAK TO PEOPLE.>>CHINA HAS SO THAT THEY WANT TO RETALIATE, THAT THEY ARE GOING TO RETALIATE BECAUSE OF THE TARIFFS. WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSE TO THAT?>>President Trump: IF THEY DID RETALIATE, WHICH I DON’T THINK THEY WILL DO, I DON’T THINK THEY’LL RETALIATE, BUT IF THEY DID, WE HAVE THE ULTIMATE FORM OF RETALIATION. I THINK THERE ARE VERY FEW JOBS LEFT IN CHINA, BECAUSE WE’D BE ABLE TO STEP IT UP. JUST SO YOU UNDERSTAND, I’VE BEEN VERY MILD ABOUT IT. VERY, VERY MILD. THERE’S A LONG WAY I CAN GO, AND SOMEBODY HAD TO TAKE ON WHAT WAS HAPPENING WITH CHINA. WE CAN’T ALLOW CHINA TO TAKE OUT OF OUR COUNTRY $507 MILLION EVERY YEAR. , NOT INCLUDING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND SO MANY OTHER THINGS. WE ARE HAVING VERY GOOD TALKS WITH CHINA. I THINK THINGS WILL HAPPEN, BUT WE’LL SEE.>>IF THEY DO RETALIATE, DO YOU WANT YOUR TEAM TO MEET WITH THEM IN SEPTEMBER AS PLANNED?>>President Trump: THE MEETING IS STILL ON, AS I UNDERSTAND IT. THEY WOULD LIKE TO DO SOMETHING. I WILL TELL YOU THAT. THE TALK WE HAD A FEW DAYS AGO WITH MY TWO REPRESENTATIVES, NOBODY KNEW WHAT WAS ON THAT TALK EXCEPT FOR MYSELF, CHINA, AND THOSE TWO PEOPLE. THAT WAS A VERY GOOD CONVERSATION.>>CUT INTEREST RATES?>>President Trump: EVERY COUNTRY ALL OVER THE WORLD IS CUTTING. I DON’T MIND IF WE ARE HIGHER. WE ARE AT BETTER CREDIT, BUT WE ARE WAY TOO HIGH. HE RAISED THEM TOO FAST, AND HE ALSO QUANTITATED, QUANTITATIVE TIGHTENING. THAT WAS A BIG MISTAKE. $50 BILLION A MONTH. THEY PUT US IN A POSITION, AND INTERESTINGLY, EVEN WITH NORMALIZED INTEREST RATES, PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS PAY NOTHING. WE HAVE A MUCH BETTER ECONOMY. YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT OUR ECONOMY, ALSO, FROM THE DAY AFTER MY ELECTION. BECAUSE WE PICKED UP TREMENDOUS STEAM THE DAY AFTER THE ELECTION. THAT’S NOT ATTRIBUTABLE TO PRESIDENT OBAMA. THEY ONLY DID THAT BECAUSE OF U US. NOT FROM JANUARY 20TH. IT’S FROM NOVEMBER 9TH, THE DAY AFTER THE ELECTION. WE PICKED UP. THE FACT THAT I ONE, LIFTED OUR ECONOMY GREATLY. IF I DIDN’T WIN, IT WOULD GO DOWN. FRANKLY, IF, FOR SOME REASON, THAT HAPPENED IN THE 2020 ELECTION, YOU’LL SEE THIS ECONOMY GO DOWN THE TUBES. I WILL TELL YOU THAT RIGHT NOW. STAY GOOD YOU HAVE ANY IDEA ON WHEN CHINA IS GOING TO FOLLOW THROUGH ON THEIR PURCHASES AND CRACKDOWN ON PATANOL?>>President Trump: THEY WANT TO FOLLOW THROUGH VERY QUICKLY. THEY HAD A SPECIAL REPRESENTATIVE ACTUALLY COME OVER AND TALK TO US. THEY WANT TO START DOING THAT VERY QUICKLY. I’LL BE HONEST. I’M NOT THERE YET. NOT CHINA. I’M NOT THERE YET. WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. I REALLY WOULD LIKE TO SEE CHINA ANY HUMANE WAY TO SOLVE THE IN HONG KONG. HUMANELY SOLVE THE PROBLEM IN HONG KONG. I THINK THEY CAN DO IT VERY QUICKLY. I SAID YESTERDAY, I REALLY HAVE A LOT OF CONFIDENCE IN PRESIDENT XI. I KNOW IF HE SAT DOWN WITH THE REPRESENTATIVES, I HAVE NO DOUBT HE WOULD SOLVE THAT PROBLEM QUICKLY.>>DID YOU ENCOURAGE THEM TO REJECT THE CONGRESSMAN? IS MIKE I DON’T ENCOURAGE OR DISCOURAGE. I THINK THAT IF ISRAEL ALLOWED THEM TO COME IN FOR NORMAL REASONS OTHER THAN THOSE REASONS, I REALLY BELIEVE THAT IT WOULD BE AT PRESENT, TERRIBLE THING FOR ISRAEL. THEY WANT TO DO BOYCOTTS. THEY’VE SAID HORRIBLE THINGS ABOUT JEWISH PEOPLE. THEY’VE SAID HORRIBLE THINGS ABOUT ISRAEL AND ISRAELIS. I THINK IT WENT WOULD BE AT I THINK IT WENT WOULD BE AR I THINK IT WENT WOULD BE AI I THINK IT WENT WOULD BE AL I THINK IT WENT WOULD BE AE THING TO LET THESE PEOPLE WHO SPEAK SO BADLY ABOUT ISRAEL COME IN. THE DEMOCRATS DON’T WANT TO DO ANYTHING TO CONDEMN THEM. IF THEY WERE, IF THIS WERE TEN YEARS AGO OR IF THIS WERE MAY BE A DIFFERENT TIME OR A DIFFERENT PEOPLE WHATEVER, THEY WOULD BE CONDEMNED FOR THE THINGS THEY’VE SAID. THEY’VE SAID SOME OF THE WORST THINGS I’VE EVER HEARD THOUGHT ABOUT ISRAEL. SO HOW CAN ISRAEL SAY, ALL, WELCOME. I DON’T THINK IT WILL BE A GOOD THING FOR ISRAEL.>>DO YOU THINK THAT HE NEEDS TO RESIGN?>>President Trump: I DON’T KNOW THE SITUATION WITH STEVE KING. SUPPOSEDLY, I HAVEN’T BEEN BRIEFED ON IT, BUT IT WASN’T A VERY GOOD STATEMENT.>>I THINK YOU ARE GOING TO MEET JOHNSON. ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE SOME DECLARATION ABOUT YOUR INTENT TO SEAL A TRADE DEAL WITH HIM?>>President Trump: WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A GREAT DEAL MADE. I JUST SPOKE TO HIM YESTERDAY. I’LL SPEAK TO HIM AGAIN. HE AND I ARE ARE VERY MUCH ALIGNED. WE FEEL VERY GOOD ABOUT EACH OTHER. I THINK WE WILL MAKE A FANTASTIC TRADE DEAL WITH THE U.K. WE SHOULD DO MUCH MORE BUSINESS THAN WE’RE DOING WITH THE U.K. THEY ARE PROBABLY, I DON’T WANT TO SAY OUR CLOSEST, BECAUSE I DON’T WANT TO INSULT OTHER PEOPLE, BUT CERTAINLY THEY ARE ONE OF OUR CLOSEST ALLIES. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A FANTASTIC RELATIONSHIP WITH THE U.K. AND WE ARE HAVE DONE MY GOING TO HAVE A GREAT TRADE DEAL. WE HAVE A LOT OF THINGS TO DISCUSS. A LOT OF THINGS TO DISCUSS. I DON’T KNOW. COREY LEWANDOWSKI, I THINK WOULD BE TERRIFIC IF HE RAN. BUT I DON’T KNOW IF HE’S GOING TO RUN. I SPOKE TO HIM ABOUT A WEEK AGO. FRANKLY, I THINK IT’S SOMETHING HE’D LIKE TO DO. BUT I DON’T KNOW IF HE’S GOING TO DO IT. I THINK YOU’D BE VERY GOOD. HE LOVES NEW HAMPSHIRE. HE LOVES OUR COUNTRY. IF HE DID, I THINK IT WOULD BE VERY FORMIDABLE. WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT THAT VERY CLOSELY. WE ARE LOOKING AT THE WHOLE GUN SITUATION. I DO WANT PEOPLE TO REMEMBER THE WORDS MENTAL ILLNESS. THESE PEOPLE ARE MENTALLY ILL. NOBODY TALKS ABOUT THAT. BUT THESE ARE MENTALLY ILL PEOPLE. PEOPLE HAVE TO START THINKING ABOUT IT. IF YOU LOOK AT THE 60s AND 70s, SO MANY OF THESE INSTITUTIONS WERE CLOSED. THE PEOPLE WERE JUST ALLOWED TO GO ONTO THE STREETS. THAT WAS A TERRIBLE THING FOR OUR COUNTRY. THEY CLOSED THEM. CITIES COULDN’T AFFORD THEM, AND THEY CLOSED THEM. I CAN TELL YOU, IN NEW YORK, THEY CLOSED A LOT OF THEM. PEOPLE WENT OUT. THEY WENT ONTO THE STREETS. IT’S A TERRIBLE THING. BUT A LOT OF OUR CONVERSATION HAS TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT WE HAVE TO OPEN UP INSTITUTIONS. WE CAN’T LET THESE PEOPLE BE ON THE STREET. SO WE HAVE A TREMENDOUS CROWD IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. IT’S ALL OVER THE PLACE. EVERYBODY’S SAYING, WOW. OUR COMPETITOR HAS VIRTUALLY NO CROWD. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS. BUT I THINK WE ARE GOING TO DO VERY WELL IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. NEW HAMPSHIRE SHOULD HAVE BEEN WON LAST TIME. EXCEPT WE HAD A LOT OF PEOPLE, AND AT THE LAST MOMENT, WHICH WAS A RATHER STRANGE SITUATION. THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE COMING IN FROM LOCATIONS UNKNOWN. BUT I KNEW WHERE THE LOCATION WAS. I THINK WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A TREMENDOUS SUCCESS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. THESE ARE GREAT PEOPLE. THE RELATIONSHIP IS VERY GOOD. WE ARE LOOKING AT IT. I FEEL VERY BADLY. WE ARE LOOKING AT IT VERY STRONGLY. PEOPLE FEEL VERY STRONGLY ABOUT IT. I WANTED TO SEE WHERE THE DEMOCRATS STOOD. WHERE THE DOMINANT DOMINANT REPUBLICAN STOOD. HE HAS BEEN THERE FOR SEVEN AND A HALF YEARS. THAT’S A LONG TIME. WHAT HE DID WAS TERRIBLE. BUT IT’S A LONG TIME. IT’S A LONG TIME.>>BACKGROUND CHECKS?>>President Trump: I’VE BEEN DEALING WITH MITCH McCONNELL AS A MAN WHO WE HAVE HAD TREMENDOUS SUCCESS WITH APPOINTMENTS. WE ARE GOING TO BE UP TO 179 FEDERAL JUDGES WITHIN THE NEXT TWO MONTHS. NOBODY WOULD HAVE BELIEVED THAT WAS POSSIBLE. THAT’S BECAUSE PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS UNABLE TO GET THEM COMPLETED. I INHERITED ABOUT 1:30 EIGHT EMPTY SEATS. NOBODY CAN BELIEVE IT. WE WILL HAVE THEM ALMOST ALL FILLED WITH TREMENDOUS CHARGES. THEY WILL BE FILLED WITHIN THREE MONTHS. TWO SUPREME COURT JUSTICES. THAT’S SOMETHING THAT NOBODY WOULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE. I WANT TO THINK VERY MUCH PRESIDENT OBAMA FOR THAT.>>I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT BACKGROUND CHECKS.>>President Trump: I HAVE BEEN SPEAKING TO MITCH ABOUT THAT. I’VE BEEN SPEAKING TO EVERYONE ABOUT IT. WE DON’T WANT TO SEE CRAZY PEOPLE OWNING GUNS. BUT I ALSO WANT TO REMEMBER THAT MENTAL ILLNESS IS SOMETHING THAT NOBODY WANTS TO TALK ABOUT. THESE PEOPLE ARE MENTALLY ILL AND WE HAVE TO STUDY THAT ALSO. BECAUSE, IT’S THEM. THE GUN DOESN’T PULL THE TRIGGER. THEY PULLED THE TRIGGER. WE HAVE TO LOOK VERY SERIOUSLY AT MENTAL ILLNESS AND WE ARE DOING THAT AT A LEVEL THAT HASN’T BEEN DONE BEFORE.>>THE SENATE MAJORITY LEADER. IS THERE ANYONE ELSE YOU ARE TALKING TO?>>President Trump: I’LL TELL YOU, IT’S BEEN AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE. THEY WANT TO SEE SOMETHING HAPPEN, AND BASICALLY, IT’S VERY SIMPLE. THEY DON’T WANT TO HAVE INSANE PEOPLE, DANGEROUS PEOPLE, REALLY BAD PEOPLE HAVING GUNS. REPUBLICANS AGREE WITH ME I WOULD SAY PRETTY MUCH UNIFORMLY. I’M AFRAID THAT IF WE CAME UP WITH A GOOD DEAL, I THINK THE DEMOCRATS THEN MIGHT OP IT AND THEN DO THINGS THAT CAN’T BE DONE AND THAT THE PUBLIC WHEN IT WANT DONE. I HOPE THAT WHEN IT HAPPENED, BUT THAT’S HAPPENED IN THE PAST.>>DO SUPPORT UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS?>>President Trump: I SUPPORT STRONG MEANINGFUL BACKGROUND CHECKS WERE THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE INSANE, PEOPLE WHO ARE MENTALLY ILL, PEOPLE WHO ARE BAD, BAD PEOPLE, LIKE THIS GUY IN PHILADELPHIA, WHO HAS BEEN ARRESTED MULTIPLE TIMES, HE’S A BAD GUY. WHERE PEOPLE LIKE THAT WOULD NOT HAVE GUNS. FRANKLY, PEOPLE LIKE THAT SHOULD BE LOCKED UP. HE SHOULDN’T HAVE EVEN BEEN ON THE STREETS. THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>WAS NOT WHO YOU TALKED TO IN CHINA?>>President Trump: I WILL SPEAK TO HIM. WE HAVE A CALL SCHEDULE SOON. WE WILL BE SPEAKING TO HIM VERY SOON. I REALLY BELIEVE THAT HE CAN WORK IT OUT. I KNOW HIM WELL.
