Trump says calls to investigate Biden is about fighting corruption


UNITED STATES.>>President Trump: SO THE UNEMPLOYMENT NUMBERS JUST CAME OUT AND THEY ARE THE BEST NUMBERS WE’VE HAD IN OVER 50 YEARS. THE UNEMPLOYMENT NUMBER IS DOWN TO 3.5%. SO THAT GOES WAY, WAY BACK. WE HAVEN’T HAD NUMBERS LIKE THIS IN A LONG TIME. WAGES ARE UP BY ALMOST 3%. THAT’S A FANTASTIC INCREASE FOR EVERYBODY OUT THERE WORKING. WE’RE VERY HAPPY ABOUT THOSE NUMBERS. THE STOCK MARKET IS SUBSTANTIALLY UP AS IT WAS YESTERDAY. AND OUR COUNTRY DOES WELL. EUROPE IS NOT DOING WELL. ASIA IS DOING POORLY TO PUT IT MILDLY. AND WE CONTINUE TO DO VERY WELL. WE’RE THE MIRACLE. THE UNEMPLOYMENT NUMBERS JUST CAME OUT, 3.5% UNEMPLOYMENT AND THAT IS A TREMENDOUS NUMBER. THE LOWEST IN OVER 50 YEARS. SO VERY HAPPY. I THINK REALLY VERY IMPORTANT. AGAIN I’LL SAY WAGES ARE UP. WHEN I WAS RUNNING, WAGES WERE NOWHERE. THEY WERE GOING DOWN. PEOPLE WERE HAVING TWO AND THREE JOBS AND MAKING LESS MONEY THAN THEY MADE 20 YEARS BEFORE. NOW WAGES ARE UP. WE’RE VERY HAPPY ABOUT THAT. ONE OTHER THING HAVING TO DO WITH POLAND. POLAND IS A COUNTRY, GREAT PEOPLE. WE HAVE A LOT OF POLISH AMERICANS LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES. I’VE JUST SIGNED — I WILL SOON BE SIGNING AND SIGNED CERTAIN PRELIMINARY APPLICATIONS. WE’LL BE GIVING A FULL VISA WAIVER TO POLAND. THAT MEANS PEOPLE FROM POLAND CAN EASILY TRAVEL THERE AND PEOPLE FROM HERE CAN GO BACK AND FORTH. PEOPLE FROM THE U.S. AND PEOPLE FROM POLAND CAN GO BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND POLAND. SO THEY’VE BEEN TRYING TO GET THIS FOR MANY, MANY DECADES. AND I GOT IT FOR THE POLISH PEOPLE IN HONOR OF THE POLISH PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES AND IN POLAND. SO WE’RE VERY HAPPY WITH THAT.>>FOUR PINOCCHIOS BY THE POST FOR LYING. ADAM SCHIFF.>>THAT’S GOOD. HE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN THEM 2 1/2 YEARS AGO. THAT’S A NICE QUESTION. LET ME SHAKE YOUR HAND. COME HERE. THAT’S A VERY NICE QUESTION. I FIGURED THAT WAS A TRICK QUESTION, RIGHT?>>WHAT DOES YOUR LETTER TO PELOSI SAY?>>President Trump: WE’LL BE ISSUING A LETTER. WE’VE BEEN TREATED VERY UNFAIRLY AND VERY DIFFERENT FROM EVERYBODY ELSE. IF YOU GO OVER ANY ASPECT OF LIFE YOU WILL SEE HOW UNFAIRLY WE’VE BEEN TREATED. WE HAVE DONE A FANTASTIC JOB. EVERYTHING TO ME IS ABOUT CORRUPTION. WE WANT TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED WITH 2016 AND AS YOU KNOW THERE IS A LOT OF WORK GOING ON WITH THAT. I DON’T CARE ABOUT BIDEN’S CAMPAIGN BUT I CARE ABOUT CORRUPTION. HIS CAMPAIGN THAT’S UP TO HIM. POLITICS, THAT’S UP TO THEM. I DON’T CARE ABOUT POLITICS. POLITICS AS I THINK I MADE CLEAR AND YESTERDAY SOMEBODY ASKED ME A QUESTION AND I GAVE AN ANSWER. BUT ALWAYS IN THE FORM OF CORRUPTION. WHAT I WANT TO DO AND I THINK I HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO DO IT, PROBABLY A DUTY TO DO IT. CORRUPTION. WE’RE LOOKING FOR CORRUPTION. WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT BIDEN AND HIS SON DID AND YOU LOOK AT OTHER PEOPLE WHAT THEY’VE DONE. I BELIEVE THERE WAS TREMENDOUS CORRUPTION WITH BIDEN BUT I THINK THERE WAS BEYOND. BEYOND CORRUPTION, HAVING TO DO WITH THE 2016 CAMPAIGN AND WHAT THESE LOW LIFES DID TO SO MANY PEOPLE TO HURT SO MANY PEOPLE IN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN, WHICH WAS SUCCESSFUL DESPITE ALL OF THE FIGHTING US. DESPITE ALL OF THE UNFAIRNESS. WE’RE LOOKING AT CORRUPTION, WE’RE NOT LOOKING AT POLITICS. WE’RE LOOKING AT CORRUPTION.>>WHAT DID YOU SAY TO THE CHINESE ABOUT THE BIDENS?>>President Trump: I DON’T KNOW SOMEBODY SAID A LONG TIME. WAS IT IN TO 2017? YOU WOULD HAVE TO TELL ME WHEN. ALL I CAN TELL YOU THIS, WHEN I SPEAK TO FOREIGN LEADERS I SPEAK IN AN APPROPRIATE WAY. IF YOU NOTICE THEY DON’T MENTION THE CALL THAT I HAD WITH THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE. THEY DON’T MENTION THAT. BECAUSE IT WAS SO GOOD. THE ONLY TIME THEY MENTIONED IT WAS WHEN ADAM SCHIFF MADE IT UP. YOU TALK ABOUT PINOCCHIOS, THAT SHOULD GET 10 PINOCCHIOS. HE MADE UP A STORY. IT WAS A PHONY STORY, ADAM SCHIFF. SO THEY DON’T TALK ABOUT THAT ANYMORE. WHEN THIS CAME OUT IT WAS QUID PRO QUO. WELL, THERE WAS NONE. ALSO YESTERDAY THE AMBASSADOR WHO I HEARD WAS TREMENDOUS AND A TREMENDOUS PERSON, HE WAS 100% FOR WHAT WE’RE SAYING, 100%. IF YOU LOOK HE ALSO SAID THERE WAS NO QUID PRO QUO. THAT’S THE WHOLE BALLGAME. BUT NOW THE DEMOCRATS DON’T BRING THAT UP ANYMORE BECAUSE THEY LOST. LOOK. THEY NEVER THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO RELEASE THE PHONE CALL BETWEEN THE UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT AND MYSELF. WHEN I RELEASED THAT CALL, THEY WERE JUMPING AROUND LIKE YOU WOULDN’T BELIEVE. THEY DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO RESPOND. THEN THEY FOUND OUT — THEN THEY FOUND OUT THAT THE CALL ITSELF WAS SO BAD FOR THEM. IT WAS A PERFECT CALL. THERE WAS NOTHING — WE HANDED THAT CALL OUT. WE’VE HANDED THE CALL OUT TO PEOPLE AND THEY SAY WOW, THIS IS INCREDIBLE. WE’RE VERY PROUD OF THAT CALL. WHEN I SPEAK TO A FOREIGN LEADER I SPEAK IN AN APPROPRIATE MANNER. NOW, WE’RE ALSO DOING TRADE DEALS WITH CHINA AND WE’RE DOING DEALS WITH A LOT OF PEOPLE FOR THE COUNTRY. SO I’M NOT LOOKING TO INSULT PEOPLE, I CAN TELL YOU THAT. WE COULD PROBABLY FIND THAT OUT. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION].>>President Trump: THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. I WANT TO DO A TRADE DEAL WITH CHINA BUT ONLY IF IT IS GOOD FOR OUR COUNTRY. IT COULD HAPPEN. AS YOU KNOW THEY ARE VERY MUCH COMING OVER NEXT WEEK, AS I UNDERSTAND IT. I WOULD LIKE TO DO A TRADE DEAL WITH CHINA BUT ONLY IF IT’S A GREAT TRADE DEAL FOR THIS COUNTRY. ONE THING HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE OTHER.>>DO YOU WANT THE HOUSE TO PROCEED WITH AN OFFICIAL IMPEACHMENT>>President Trump: THEY’VE TAKEN AWAY OUR RIGHTS THE WAY THEY’RE DOING IT. IF THEY PROCEED. THEY WILL JUST GET THEIR PEOPLE — THEY’RE ALL IN LINE. EVEN MANY OF THEM DON’T WANT TO VOTE THEY HAVE TO FOLLOW THEIR LEADERSHIP. WE’LL GET IT TO THE SENATE AND WE’LL WIN. THE REPUBLICANS ARE UNIFIED. THE GREATEST WITCH HUNT IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY. WE BEAT THE ONE THAT STARTED IMMEDIATELY. WE WENT THROUGH TWO YEARS OF MUELLER AND THAT CAME OUT LIKE A 10, PERFECT. A FEW DAYS GO BY AND THEY START THIS NONSENSE. THIS IS JUST AS RIDICULOUS. SO THE DEMOCRATS UNFORTUNATELY THEY HAVE THE VOTES. THEY COULD VOTE VERY EASILY EVEN THOUGH MANY OF THEM DON’T BELIEVE THEY SHOULD DO IT. I DO BELIEVE — I DO BELIEVE THAT BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY ARE DOING WITH PELOSI AND THEY’RE REAL LEADERS, AOC PLUS THREE. THAT’S THEIR REAL LEADERS. I BELIEVE THEY’LL PAY A TREMENDOUS PRICE AT THE POLLS. WE SAW THE FIRST GLIMPSE OF IT TWO WEEKS AGO IN A GREAT STATE NORTH CAROLINA. WE SAW A GREAT, GREAT GLIMPSE OF WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. BECAUSE IN NORTH CAROLINA WE HAD TWO RACES. ONE GENTLEMAN DAN BISHOP WAS DOWN BY 17 POINTS WITH THREE WEEKS AGO AND HE WON EASILY. AND THE OTHER MAN AS YOU KNOW GREG MURPHY WAS UP BY A VERY LITTLE BIT AND WON BY A MASSIVE AMOUNT, SOMEPLACE IN THE 20% OR SOMETHING, MAYBE HIGHER. SO I THINK YOU GOT YOUR FIRST GLIMPSE OF WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. AND THE BIG KEY IS THAT I HAVE TO CAMPAIGN THERE. BUT IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED IN NORTH CAROLINA, TWO RACES, WE WON BOTH OF THEM AND WE WON THEM EASILY. ONE WAS ALMOST TIED AND THE OTHER ONE WAS A BIG, BIG LEAD AND THAT ONE TURNED AND THE TIE BECAME A LANDSLIDE. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>President Trump: I DON’T KNOW ABOUT MITCH. I HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT FOR MITCH MCCONNELL. I SAW HIS STATEMENT AND HE THINKS THIS IS RIDICULOUS. HE THINKS IT’S UNFAIR. I SAW HIS STATEMENT YESTERDAY THAT HE PUT OUT WHERE HE READ MY PHONE CONVERSATION AND HE THOUGHT IT WAS A WONDERFUL CONVERSATION. IT WAS. BUT SEE, THE DEMOCRATS DON’T TALK ABOUT THAT ANYMORE. THEY TRY TO GO TO OTHER THINGS. THESE PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR ANYTHING THEY CAN GET BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY WILL LOSE THE ELECTION. WE’RE IN ELECTION SEASON NOW. FOR THEM TO BE DOING THIS NOW, IT HAS NEVER BEEN DONE. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>President Trump: WE’RE DEALING WITH NORTH KOREA. THEY WANT TO MEET AND WE’LL BE MEETING WITH THEM PROBABLY BEING SET UP AS WE SPEAK. WE’LL LET YOU KNOW. BUT NORTH KOREA WOULD LIKE TO DO SOMETHING, IRAN WOULD LIKE TO DO SOMETHING. A LOT OF COUNTRIES IN A GOOD POSITION. DESPITE THE WITCH HUNT, WHICH HURTS OUR COUNTRY AND AMERICA. IRAN WANTS TO DO SOMETHING, NORTH KOREA WANTS TO DO SOMETHING, AND CHINA WOULD LIKE TO DO SOMETHING. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>President Trump: THAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO ASK — IS THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT INVESTIGATING JOE BIDEN? THAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO ASK ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR. BUT I CAN TELL YOU JUST AS AN OBSERVER, WHAT I SAW BIDEN DO WITH HIS SON, HE IS PILLAGING THESE COUNTRIES AND HURTING US. HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE AS AN EXAMPLE, JOE BIDEN NEGOTIATING THE CHINA DEAL IF HE TOOK IT OVER FROM ME AFTER THE ELECTION? HE WOULD GIVE THEM — WAIT. HE WOULD GIVE THEM EVERYTHING. HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE THAT? JOE BIDEN WOULD JUST ROLL OUT THE RED CARPET AND GIVE THEM EVERYTHING. SO AGAIN, THIS DOESN’T PERTAIN TO ANYTHING BUT CORRUPTION. AND THAT HAS TO DO WITH ME. I DON’T CARE ABOUT POLITICS. I DON’T CARE ABOUT ANYTHING. BUT I DO CARE ABOUT CORRUPTION. AND TO HAVE SOMEBODY TAKE OUT A BILLION HALF DOLLARS OUT OF CHINA WHO IS TOTALLY UNFIT. HE IS UNFIT TO HAVE HIM GET A BILLION AND A HALF DOLLARS, TO HAVE HIM AND NOW I’M HEARING THE NUMBER OF $50,000 A MONTH. NOW I’M HEARING THE NUMBER OF $50,000 A MONTH IS VERY LOW. IT’S A MUCH HIGHER NUMBER THAT BIDEN’S SON WAS GETTING PER MONTH. IN FACT, IT’S MUCH HIGHER. FOR HIM TO — AND FOR HIM AS A TOTAL — FOR HIM AS A TOTALLY UNQUALIFIED PERSON TO BE GETTING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS A MONTH IS VERY, VERY SAD. SO AGAIN, IS THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT INVESTIGATING THAT? I JUST DON’T KNOW. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>DO THE DEMOCRATS HAVE THE VOTE TO IMPEACH?>>President Trump: I THINK THEY FOLLOW THE LEADER. I GIVE THE DEMOCRATS CREDIT. A LOT OF THEM DON’T WANT IT. YOU KNOW THAT. A LOT OF THEM THEY CALL THEM TRUMP DISTRICTS WHERE I WON AND THEN THEY WON AFTER WHEN I WASN’T RUNNING. I’LL WIN THEM BIG. IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT HAS HAPPENED WITH MY POLLS THEY’RE THROUGH THE ROOF. YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE OF THE PHONY WITCH HUNT. IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE FUNDRAISING. WE’VE SET A RECORD, THE REPUBLICANS, BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF IT. I GOT A CALL THE OTHER NIGHT FROM PASTORS, THE BIGGEST PASTORS, EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS. THEY SAID WE HAVE NEVER SEEN OUR RELIGION OR ANY RELIGION SO — CHURCHES ARE JOINING, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE. YOU KNOW THAT IS TO A LARGE EXTENT BECAUSE OF YOU AND YOUR PARTNER THE DEMOCRATS. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>President Trump: I THINK THIS. WE HAVE GREAT — WE HAVE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP IN THE SENATE. I HAVE A 95% APPROVAL RATING IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. I BELIEVE THE SENATE AND I HAVEN’T SPOKEN TO THAT MANY SENATORS. BUT I BELIEVE THE SENATORS LOOK AT THIS AS A HOAX, A WITCH HUNT. IT IS A DISGRACE. SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED. JUST LIKE RUSSIA COLLUSION DELUSION SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED. THAT WAS A WITCH HUNT AND JUST LIKE THAT SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED. SO I THINK IN THE SENATE, I THINK THEY FEEL THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS BEEN TREATED VERY, VERY BADLY. NOW, IN THE HOUSE THEY HAVE THE MAJORITY. THEY ALL VOTE WITH AOC AND PLUS THREE. NANCY PELOSI IS PETRIFIED OF THEM. SHE IS AFRAID SHE WILL LOSE HER POSITION. NANCY PELOSI WILL LOSE HER SPEAKERSHIP RIGHT AFTER THE ELECTION WHEN THE REPUBLICANS TAKE OVER THE HOUSE. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE TEXT MESSAGES INCLUDE HOLDING OFF A –>>President Trump: THE ONE TEXT MESSAGE. I DON’T EVEN KNOW MOST OF THESE AMBASSADORS. I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW THEIR NAMES. THE TEXT MESSAGE — THE TEXT MESSAGE THAT I SAW FROM AMBASSADOR SUNDLAND WHO IS HIGHLY RESPECTED WAS THERE IS NO QUID PRO QUO. HE SAID THAT. HE SAID BY THE WAY, IT ALMOST SOUNDED LIKE IN GENERAL. BY THE WAY, THERE IS NO QUID PRO QUO. THERE ISN’T. NOW FOR BIDEN THERE WOULD BE. BUT LISTEN TO THIS. THERE IS NO QUID PRO QUO. THAT WAS THE TEXT MESSAGE THAT I SAW AND THAT NULLIFIED EVERYTHING.>>HAVE YOU ASKED FOREIGN LEADERS FOR ANY CORRUPTION INGAITIONS THAT DON’T INVOLVE POLITICAL OPPONENTS>>President Trump: WHAT I ASK FOR AND WHAT I ALWAYS WILL ASK FOR IS ANYTHING HAVING TO DO WITH CORRUPTION WITH RESPECT TO OUR COUNTRY. IF A FOREIGN COUNTRY CAN HELP US WITH RESPECT TO CORRUPTION AND CORRUPTION PROBE, AND — I DON’T CARE IF IT’S BIDEN OR ANYBODY ELSE. IF THEY CAN HELP US. IF BIDEN IS CORRUPT, IF HIS SON IS CORRUPT. WHEN HIS SON TAKES OUT BILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND HE HAS NO EXPERIENCE. HE JUST GOT FIRED FROM THE NAVY. WHEN THEY DO THAT, THAT’S NO GOOD. SO — JUST TO FINISH YOUR QUESTION. ANYTHING HAVING TO DO WITH CORRUPTION I FEEL I HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO DO THAT.>>IS ANYONE ADVISING YOU IT IS ALL RIGHT TO SOLICIT THE HELP OF OTHER GOVERNMENTS TO INVESTIGATE A POLITICAL OPPONENT.>>President Trump: HERE IS WHAT’S OKAY. IF WE FEEL THERE IS CORRUPTION, LIKE I FEEL THERE WAS IN THE 2016 CAMPAIGN, THERE WAS TREMENDOUS CORRUPTION AGAINST ME. IF WE FEEL THERE IS CORRUPTION, WE HAVE A RIGHT TO GO TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY AND JUST SO YOU KNOW, JUST SO YOU KNOW, I WAS INVESTIGATED. I WAS INVESTIGATED. ME, ME, IN MY CAMPAIGN. I RAN, I WON. I WAS — YOU WON’T SAY THAT, WILL YOU? I WAS INVESTIGATED. I WAS INVESTIGATED AND THEY THINK IT COULD HAVE BEEN BY U.K. THEY THINK IT COULD HAVE BEEN BY AUSTRALIA OR BY ITALY. SO WHEN YOU GET DOWN TO IT, I WAS INVESTIGATED BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, I WAS INVESTIGATED. SO WHEN THESE PEOPLE TALK — AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED, WHAT I WANT TO LOOK AT AND WHAT WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE ANYTHING HAVING TO DO WITH CORRUPTION. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>President Trump: I VIEW CHINA AS SOMEBODY WE’RE TRYING TO MAKE A DEAL WITH. WE HAVE A VERY GOOD CHANCE OF MAKING A DEAL WITH. WE HAVE HAD GOOD MOMENTS WITH CHINA AND BAD MOMENTS WITH CHINA. RIGHT NOW WE’RE IN A VERY IMPORTANT STAGE IN TERMS OF POSSIBLY MAKING A DEAL. IF WE MAKE IT, IT WILL BE THE BIGGEST TRADE DEAL EVER MADE. IF WE MAKE IT. BUT I VIEW CHINA AS SOMEBODY THAT WE DEAL WITH ON THE WORLD STAGE. I WOULD LIKE TO GET ALONG WITH CHINA IF WE CAN. IF WE CAN THAT’S GREAT. IF WE CAN’T, THAT’S OKAY, TOO. WHAT WE’RE DOING IS WE’RE NEGOTIATING A VERY TOUGH DEAL. IF THE DEAL IS NOT GOING TO BE 100% FOR US WE AREN’T GOING TO MAKE IT. AND I WILL — AND I WILL SAY THIS. I WILL SAY THIS. CHINA VERY MUCH WANTS TO MAKE THIS DEAL. CHINA IS GETTING KILLED. THE TARIFFS ARE KILLING CHINA. WHAT HAS HAPPENED IS THEY HAVE NOW 3 MILLION LOSS OF JOBS, IF YOU LOOK AT THEIR SUPPLY CHAIN IT’S A DISASTER. COMPANIES ARE GOING TO OTHER COUNTRIES INCLUDING US. CHINA RIGHT NOW IS A TOTAL DISASTER. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>President Trump: NO, NO, NO. LET ME TELL YOU. I’M ONLY INTERESTED IN CORRUPTION. I DON’T CARE ABOUT POLITICS. I DON’T CARE ABOUT BIDEN’S POLITICS. I NEVER THOUGHT BIDEN WAS GOING TO WIN TO BE HONEST. I PICKED SOMEBODY ELSE A LONG TIME AGO. AND WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. BUT I NEVER THOUGHT BIDEN WAS GOING TO WIN. BUT I DON’T CARE. FRANKLY IF HE WON I WOULD BE VERY HAPPY AND AN EASY OPPONENT. BUT I NEVER THOUGHT BIDEN WAS GOING TO WIN. I DON’T CARE ABOUT POLITICS. WHAT I DO CARE ABOUT IS CORRUPTION. THIS WHOLE THING IS ABOUT CORRUPTION. THIS WHOLE THING IS — THIS WHOLE THING IS ABOUT CORRUPTION. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>President Trump: THIS IS ABOUT CORRUPTION. THIS IS NOT ABOUT POLITICS. THIS IS ABOUT CORRUPTION. AND IF YOU LOOK AND YOU READ OUR CONSTITUTION AND MANY OTHER THINGS, I HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO LOOK AT CORRUPTION. I HAVE AN ACTUAL OBLIGATION AND A DUTY. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>ARE YOU GOING TO COOPERATE WITH THE HOUSE?>>President Trump: THAT’S UP TO THE LAWYERS. THE LAWYERS HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING SO UNFAIR AND UNJUST. I’VE BEEN PRESIDENT NOW FOR ALMOST THREE YEARS AND I’VE BEEN GOING THROUGH THIS FOR ALMOST THREE YEARS. IT HAS ALMOST BECOME LIKE A PART OF MY DAY. BUT IN THE MEANTIME WE HAVE THE BEST ECONOMY WE’VE EVER HAD. WE HAVE THE BEST JOB NUMBERS WE’VE HAD IN 51 YEARS. THE BEST UNEMPLOYMENT NUMBERS THAT WE’VE HAD IN A HALF A CENTURY. THE BEST NUMBERS THAT WE’VE EVER HAD AFRICAN-AMERICAN, HISPANIC AMERICAN, ASIAN AMERICAN, WOMEN, EVERYTHING. WE HAVE THE BEST NUMBERS THAT WE’VE HAD IN MANY, MANY, MANY DECADES. AND YOU KNOW WHAT? PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT. PEOPLE ARE WORKING, THEY ARE MAKING MONEY, IF YOU LOOK AT ONE VERY IMPORTANT NUMBER THAT WAS JUST ANNOUNCED, WAGES UP 3%. THAT’S UNHEARD OF. IT’S GREAT. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>President Trump: I DIDN’T HEAR YOU. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>President Trump: WE’RE INVESTIGATING CORRUPTION. WE’RE NOT INVESTIGATING CAMPAIGNS. I DON’T CARE ABOUT HIS CAMPAIGN. AS I SAID, I DIDN’T THINK — I DIDN’T THINK AND I DON’T THINK BIDEN IS GOING TO WIN. I DON’T THINK. MAYBE TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, WHEN YOU SAY WHO IS GOING TO WIN? I WOULD RATHER NOT MAKE A PREDICTION. I HAVE A FEELING ABOUT SOMEBODY. I DIDN’T THINK — I’VE WATCHED BIDEN OVER THE YEARS. BIDEN IS NOT THE BRIGHTEST PERSON. I NEVER THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO WIN. I NEVER FELT HE WAS GOING TO WIN. IF YOU LOOK AT HIS OTHER TWO CAMPAIGNS HE WAS A 1 PERCENTER. HE GOT VERY FEW VOTES. HE GOT TAKEN OFF THE GARBAGE HEAP BY OBAMA. SO IT’S ONE OF THOSE THINGS. BUT I NEVER THOUGHT THAT BIDEN — I DIDN’T THINK BIDEN WAS GOING TO WIN. I GUESS EVERYBODY HAS A SHOT BUT I DON’T THINK HE WOULD BE FRANKLY MY TOUGHEST OPPONENT. AND JUST TO FINISH OFF, JUST TO FINISH OFF, I DON’T THINK THAT HE WILL WIN. I DIDN’T THINK HE WAS GOING TO WIN AND I DON’T THINK HE IS GOING TO WIN. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT FACING ELIZABETH WARREN>>President Trump: FINE. SHE IS A SOCIALIST AND MAYBE WORSE THAN THAT. I HAVEN’T SEEN BIDEN’S POLL NUMBERS. LOOK, JOE BIDEN WAS NEVER GOING TO MAKE IT, ALL RIGHT? HE WAS NEVER GOING TO MAKE IT. HE TRIED IT TWICE. WHEN I ANNOUNCED I WENT TO NUMBER ONE DAY ONE AND I STAYED THERE THE ENTIRE PRIMARY SEASON. I NEVER WAS OFF CENTER STAGE. I WAS NEVER GIVEN CREDIT FOR THAT BUT THAT’S OKAY. THE ONLY ONE THAT GAVE ME CREDIT WAS STEVE. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>President Trump: THEY WERE TRYING TO SET UP A MEETING. HE WANTED SANCTIONS LIFTED AND I SAID YOU MUST BE KIDDING. WE HAD — ROUHANI WANTED A MEETING AT THE U.N. WE DID TALK. I DIDN’T SPEAK TO HIM PERSONALLY. OUR SIDES TALKED. HE WANTED SANCTIONS LIFTED OR PARTIALLY LIFTED AND I SAID NO. [INAUDIBLE QUESTION]>>President Trump: WE’RE WATCHING VENEZUELA VERY, VERY CLOSELY. THE PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING AND WE ARE WATCHING IT VERY CLOSELY. WE ARE ALSO GIVING BIG AID TO VENEZUELA. ONE THING. I’M GOING TO WALTER REED HOSPITAL. WE’LL BE GIVING OUT FIVE PURPLE HEARTS TO UNBELIEVABLY BRAVE YOUNG PEOPLE AND I’M GOING TO MEET YOU. SOME OF YOU ARE GOING OVER. SO WE CAN TALK FURTHER OVER THERE. ALTHOUGH WHEN WE’RE THERE I WOULD LIKE YOU TO RESPECT THE PROCESS. WE ARE GIVING OUT PURPLE HEARTS TO VERY BRAVE PEOPLE. WOUNDED WARRIORS, PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN — THEY ARE JUST INCREDIBLE PEOPLE. I WILL BE BACK HERE IN PROBABLY

  • Hearing a major world politician talk about 'corruption' is like watching a carnivore talk about not eating meat, give me a break. Corruption is the only reason any of these guys are in power, they wouldn't of been put in power in the first place if they did not have at least a little bit of corruption involved in the process.

  • You can say that again it is extreme corruption and the Democrats should be ashamed of themselves get nothing done Democrats trying to put the blame on our president The Democrats are being exposed for the rats that they are and trying to blame our president for their corruption that stems back to Joe Biden his son and Obama and Hillary good grief the corruption is being exposed and Trump is going to get to the bottom of it go Mr. Trump you got my vote 🗳

  • A President who has concentrated on building the business called America. Flush out the corruption and help marginalised Americans get jobs and security.and what do all the biased press care about?? …

  • There is even a treaty with Ukraine adressing corruption signed by Bill Clinton in which is written the President even is obligated to investigate corruption! He did not only do the absolute RIGHT thing, he was even obligated to do so.

  • Why all questions are not relevant for the USA peoples??? Why not questioning the President on real issues??? Infrastructure, scholing systems, inner city progressive. healtcare, housing programs, opportunity zones……THAT is what i want to hear in they’re questionings…not the useless crap which is no issue after the 2020 elections anymore

  • It's pretty bad when a sitting U.S. President has to go to a foriegn government for help in investigative matters about a former sitting vice president Joe Biden and his son. Can you imagine if he went to the FBI? which is what any president should be able to do and get a fair shake but no not Trump they the FBI and other intelligent agencies are all out to bring him Trump down, Shame on the DNC and CNN they are trying to hurt this country because they can't get over the fact that they lost in 2016.

  • What a great president Trump is. I love the fact we have a shrewd successful businessman doing the negotiating when it comes to foreign politics. It's too bad so many people are trying to smear him.

  • I am certain that Trump – being a 'stable genius' – knows exactly how to fight corruption:
    1: He should sack his whole staff and administration
    2: He should resign
    That's all it takes 🙂

  • Greetings from Portugal. If you love the USA, you must love this President. In Europe, we are also bombarded with fake and distorted news about Trump. It is a shameful bias. Every tweet, action or intention is always distorted to make Trump look bad. If you love your country you should vote Trump. You will make a favour to all peoples of the world. Democrats are crazier everyday. Good luck with that!

  • Keep on them, Mr. President! We support you getting to the bottom of the democrat's crimes against you and the American people. ❤❤❤

  • Wanderson Deoliveira says:

    TRUMP 2020! NO SOCIALISM HERE! DRAIN THE DEMOCRATIC SWAMP!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  • The pastors need to quit demonizing cannabis and disavow the drug war, waged across America, that has become the sole precipitator of the police vs citizen mentality.

  • China is sending their trade delegation on October 11. If no trade deal is reached, tariffs on some of their goods are due to rise to 35% on October 15.

  • Why all these scams and plots to distract The American People at these critical times?

    Why all this cross-culturally politically motivated scams and plots continuously netted to negatively affect President Trump and Colleagues performances and popularity?

    Why all these uncivil malicious behaviors and practices to distract and to shake up the trust of The American People in their President and leadership performance and resolve?

    Why all these scams and plots against The American People and their Leaderships never stop and disappear to let The American People and their Leaderships move forward towards leading The United States forward towards peace, role of law and prosperity?

    Again as usual, it is sad to see The United States Democratic Party becoming a platform for cross-cultural Demagoguery, scams and politically motivated plots to distract, waste times & resources and to destabilize The American People and the world at large dreaming to smear and to shakeup the reputations, credibility, popularity and outstanding performance of President Trump and Colleagues.

    It is unfair to witness The United States Democratic Party becoming a platform for the entire world mules, fabricating, setting up and making up politically and economically motivated scams and plots to shake up and to smear The United States and their Leadership.

    We wonder, when The United States Democratic Party restores its accountability, reputations and credibility to focus on The United States best national interests and people's well beings, instead of becoming a cross-cultural platform for the entire world mules negatively shaking up and harming The United States performance and image in the world arena as a leading nation?

  • Lawrence Rodriguez says:

  • kiddiescripterkiller says:

    I like these press conferences, just wish he would do it farther from the helicopter, the engine sound is annoying.

  • Dems cannot believe that anyone could have any motive beyond power and winning an election. The idea of fighting corruption is the last thing on their minds. Trump has no personal reason to be concerned about Biden; Biden was never a threat.

  • Herman Demianenko says:

    So Republicans are basically saying that a sitting president can ask a foreign country to investigate his political opponents with no questions asked and no accountability to the American people. Isn't that what banana republics do?

  • Michael Alan Lydeen says:

    I watch the facts.
    I synthesize the data over 60 years of receiving news.

    I don't NEED to be told what to think. Cause I think!

    Propoganda, Dogma, Rhetoric are being pushed by ALL media outlets everywhere.

    Add up your facts and invest your funds accordingly.
    False facts will cause you to loose your investment funds.

    Believing is NOT knowing.

  • Trump had the deal. Then the Democrats talked impeachment. We in Iowa are going to be upset if the deal is spoiled by this impeachment talk. This is upsetting. How Trump keeps going with all the neg. press.

  • The dumbass so=called reporter asks if Trump is investigating anyone other than a political enemy…when the dem-asses have been attacking him since before the inauguration… ridiculous… go ask the demonrats that question you moron
