President Trump Delivers Remarks During Cabinet Meeting…

Earlier today, prior to a closed meeting between Secretary of State Tillerson and U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley, President Trump delivered remarks to the full cabinet within the White House Cabinet Room.

During remarks (transcript below) President Trump announced that North Korea will be designated as a state sponsor of terrorism, re-instituting a legal designation previously dropped by the Bush administration.

.

[Transcript] 11:40 A.M. EST – THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. We just returned from a historic 12-day trip to Asia. Everywhere we went, the American delegation was greeted with tremendous hospitality and tremendous respect. People are respecting our country again, believe me.

We brought back more than $300 billion worth of deals, which could reach well over a trillion dollars within a very near future. That means jobs for the United States at a very high level.

As you know, we’ve just come up with the best job performance in over 17 years. But this is a lot more jobs, and we think the number is going to actually get a lot better. We’re going to also put a lot of people that have not been able to find jobs, we’re going to put them back to work — because they’re not registered right now; they’ll be registered in a positive sense.

Japanese car companies will be opening up and expanding their plants in our country. We worked very closely with Prime Minister Abe on that. We’re renegotiating our bad trade deal with South Korea, and we’ve started talking about bilateral trade with many countries in Asia.

And most importantly, we’ve made clear to all countries that we cannot continue to be treated unfairly when it comes to trade any longer. It’s not fair to our companies, and it’s not fair to our workers. Last year, we lost over $800 billion on trade — on trade deals with other countries. So we had a negative number, a trade deficit of almost $800 billion with other countries. That’s not going to be happening. That’s changing. And I explained that to them. From the standpoint of Asia, they understand it. Every one of them understand it.

One of the primary goals of our trip was to pursue the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. I want to begin this morning by meeting and by talking about the fact that we will be instituting a very critical step, and that will start right now. Today, the United States is designating North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism. It should have happened a long time ago. It should have happened years ago.

In addition to threatening the world by nuclear devastation, North Korea has repeatedly supported acts of international terrorism, including assassinations on foreign soil.

As we take this action today, our thoughts to turn to Otto Warmbier, a wonderful young man, and the countless others so brutally affected by the North Korean oppression. This designation will impose further sanctions and penalties on North Korea and related persons, and supports our maximum pressure campaign to isolate the murderous regime that you’ve all been reading about and, in some cases, writing about.

Tomorrow, the Treasury Department will be announcing an additional sanction, and a very large one, on North Korea. This will be going on over the next two weeks. It will be the highest level of sanctions by the time it’s finished over a two-week period.

The North Korean regime must be lawful. It must end its unlawful nuclear and ballistic missile development, and cease all support for international terrorism — which it is not doing.

Today, Cabinet discussions will also focus on crucial domestic policy issues. I want to congratulate the House of Representatives for passing a vital and historic tax cut last week, and I’m very hopeful the Senate will do the same very soon.

We’re going to give the American people a huge tax cut for Christmas. Hopefully that will be a great, big, beautiful Christmas present.

With the Democrats giving us no votes for tax cuts, for purely political reasons — obstructionists — it will be up to the Republicans to come through for America. I think they will. I hope they will. It’s up to the Senate. And if they approve it, the House and the Senate will get together — I’ll be there right in the middle of it — and we will come up with a bill that will be spectacular for growth and spectacular for the people of this country.

Our tax plan will be bring urgent relief to hardworking families. We’ll reduce rates, increase the amount of income taxed at a rate of zero, expand the Child Tax Credit — very important, and simplify taxes as most family will be able to file on a single sheet of paper. We’ll restore America’s competitive edge so we can bring back our jobs. We want to bring our jobs back to our country. We were decimated over the last 40 years. We want to bring our jobs back to the United States.

We’ll go from being one of the highest-taxed nations in the world to one of the lowest-taxed nations in the world. Corporate rate will be reduced from 35 percent all the way down to 20 percent, which will make us competitive again, and companies won’t be leaving our country. Finally, our tax plan will return trillions of dollars in wealth to our shores so that companies can invest in America again.

At the same time, we’re working to reduce wasteful government spending. We will hear from budget director, Mick Mulvaney, who is working with my Cabinet to find taxpayer savings in each and every department.

The Cabinet members that are with us today are working on getting reductions through their various departments, and we think we’re going to be able to save a lot of money — even lower than the budgets, in the budgets that we’re submitting.

We’ll be working on healthcare, infrastructure, and welfare reform. We’re looking very strongly at welfare reform, and that will all take place right after taxes — very soon, very shortly after taxes. So we’ll be submitting plans on healthcare, plans on infrastructure, and plans on welfare reform — which is desperately needed in our country — soon after taxes.

Today, we’ll also discuss the opioid epidemic that is ravaging so many American families and communities. Last week, I was proud to nominate Alex Azar to serve as the next Secretary of Health and Human Services. I urge the Senate to swiftly confirm his nomination, and I want to thank Acting Secretary Eric Hargan for serving with such devotion and for doing such a great job in the meantime. Thank you very much, Eric.

Finally, I want to wish the American people a truly happy and blessed Thanksgiving, especially to our brave men and women serving in our military and our Border Patrol and ICE agents along the very dangerous southern border. As you heard, we lost a Border Patrol officer just yesterday, and another one was brutally beaten and badly, badly hurt. Looks like he’ll make it, but very, very badly hurt.

And we talk about the wall — we’re going to have the wall. It’s a part of what we’re doing. We need it. It’s rough territory. That’s where the drugs are coming in. A lot of things are happening along the border — the southern border — and we’re going to straighten it out.

We’ve already reduced the numbers — and you see the numbers — they’re back to 78 percent down from what they were. And those numbers will get better and better but we have to stop the massive drug flow from pouring in. And my respect to the families that were so badly hurt yesterday, because they were devastating. Those two families were devastated.

I just want to wish everybody a very, very Happy Thanksgiving. We’re going to be working very hard during the recess in Florida. We’re going to Florida. And I want to thank you all for being here, and let’s start our meeting. And to the media, to the press, thank you very much. We appreciate it. Thank you. Thank you very much.

    I know, I know…they are the enemy of liberty and justice in our country because they are the propaganda arm of the democrats/socialists/communists that make up the Democrat party.

    The people of West Virginia have no idea that he brought them so much wealth in his dealings overseas and sooner or later a democrat will take credit for it and the MSM will promote THAT falsehood all week long.

    • sundance says:

      Ivanka Trump is a White House emissary, and will be representing the White House in India. Both Ivanka Trump and Jared Trump represent the White House to groups, nations and heads of state who are more familiar/comfortable with messages carried by internal family members.

      For decades U.S. policy has been messaged by diplomats the rest of the world views to be tenuous and politically motivated in their interactions. One of the benefits from personal emissary engagement is a level of particular confidence in the message that is delivered. In essence, they are viewed, by the cultures they engage, as more reliable and trustworthy than the more historic parseltongue politicians from other administrations.

      Personal diplomacy is a particular skillset in the Trump administration that has not been utilized with effectiveness up until now. With the increased level of trust follows an increased level of confidence in the purposeful plan within the communication.

      We didn’t elect a talker, we elected a do’er. The personal emissary is a reflection of the Trump administration that the message is direct, certain and true.

      The approach is paying huge dividends. Look around.

      Hope that answers your question.

      Warmest regards.

          Most Asian and Latin American countries are “high context” cultures where *family* is king. Trump’s having his daughter and son-in-law represent her father and his father-in-law shows that kind of respect and cultural engagement.

          And do you really think Ivanka and Jared, both millionaires ON THEIR OWN need a job? Do you really think this is nepotism? You already knew the answer to your question, didn’t you? But you just wanted to distract again with a classic trolling maneuver: “Trump is great, BUT . . . .” and the “but” is far-fetched, drive-by inanity.

      Heroin is an ‘opiod’. Fentanyl made in illegal drug labs is an ‘opioid’ People die from them every day. The press lumped those deaths in with the handful of people who obtained fentanyl legally and died. The media used to call it an ‘epidemic’ until someone looked it up and found out that an epidemic is a widespread INFECTIOUS disease. The media just renamed the ‘epidemic’ to ‘crisis’. There is no opioid ‘crisis’, either. Its just more fake news spin.

Wilful depression of the spirit HAS been endemic in a large part of our population. clinton telling coal miners told their lively hood was to be destroyed for example. obama telling us manufacturing jobs were gone forever another. I lived through this in the carter years and a second time with obama.

    I read a comment here a few days ago about the tax reform effort in Congress and how the whole discussion of going after waste and fraud seems to have slipped away. Here’s a tidbit from the President’s comments up above:

    “At the same time, we’re working to reduce wasteful government spending. We will hear from budget director, Mick Mulvaney, who is working with my Cabinet to find taxpayer savings in each and every department.

    The Cabinet members that are with us today are working on getting reductions through their various departments, and we think we’re going to be able to save a lot of money — even lower than the budgets, in the budgets that we’re submitting.”

    I suspect Mick Mulvaney can sniff out “wasteful government spending.” He seems to be really good with numbers and a pretty savvy guy. I bet the Trump Administration ends up cutting more government waste than any other administration when it is all said and done.

      Sylvia, and we need to cut even more waste from Congress! In any case, there are way too many duplicate departments and we are wasting a lot of money on unneeded and often lazy employees. Take away the public unions in DC employees as well as teacher unions and a lot of money will be in our favor and we rid of what we don’t need. The fed employees are earning more than most American workers. Why? No need to have them or their union(s).

        Changing that to “SOME fed workers earn more than…” would be a more truthful statement. You have the ones at/near the top who make ridiculous wages while the peons doing the work are struggling.
        Can you imagine someone exiting college with all the debt of getting their Master’s degree being told they qualify for a position that pays maybe $27k a year? Yet that same agency, through diversity programs, will place a barely English- literate, no degree female in a GS-13 (or higher) position making a generous 6 figures.
        And when that agency is told to cut back their spending, they keep the diversity positions and refuse to fill the actual worker positions when employees quit for better paying jobs. Then they scream “I told you so!” when the work isn’t being done and they either get their budgets back or continue punishing taxpayers by delaying FOIA requests, not clearing trails in national parks, etc.
        And you are absolutely right that there should be no unions for federal employees.

    I love the reverse psychology our President is using with Jeff Flake(y), Bob Corker and Lucifer himself. By stating that Flake will vote NO to the Tax Reform Bill puts him and the other two on notice. Unlike Repeal and Replace, our President is getting out in front of these RATS.

    I think our President is at a point where he realizes that he has single-handedly gotten our Economy to a point where 3% GDP is realistic for the 2017 year and 3.5% to 4% will occur in 2018.

    At that point, he will campaign in those states were Democrats are most vulnerable in the Senate in 2018. Every candidate running against a Democrat can run a simple 30 second ad stating that the Democrat voted NO to Tax Reform and if elected, our President will get a YES vote.

    Our President can easily make the case that if Tax Reform were to be passed by the new Congress, 6% to 7% GDP will be on the horizon. How could people call him crazy especially since he was able to produce 3% in his first year and is closing in on 4% for his 2nd year.

    Our President has positioned himself into a win-win scenario no matter what happens with Flake, Corker and Lucifer. We will see DRAIN THE SWAMP on steroids in 2018!

      This may be why the President wants to get the vote as soon as possible and a “bill” to his desk by December.

Animated GIFs tax the enduser in all possible ways, hard storage ( since all are first downloaded into the user cache and played from there, except in some rare cases of portable browsers ), live RAM memory and most importantly in realtime CPU processing ( except for those using a browser allowing disabling of certain elements like GIFs ) as they continuously loop.

              Do the math. If a thread page has like 10 or 20 animated GIFs, it easily could be 100, 200 even 500 MB of downloaded resources spent in the hard cache, that alone will take 20 to 50 seconds to download at common broadband speeds of 1-2 MB/s, ( i.e., the page loads slower ). Naturally we’re not talking about smileys and other small animated GIFs which are only a few pixels in length and width by a handful of frames.

              This is *not* true for the ( current implementation of ) YouTube plugin. It only creates a container frame and uses a static placeholder still image JPG of approximately 500 KB and a static link to play/pause ( stream ) the content *from* Google. They are careful about this because had they implemented full downloading of the video before playing it then they would be committing copyright violations and be distributing content far worse than Napster ever did ( they didn’t ). 🙂

              However, what most people mistake for wasting bandwidth is usually accounted for by the larger number of canned boilerplate Javascript files included in default code for most web pages these days ( e.g., plugins for YouTube, Twitter etc. ), each of which can pull in a huge number resources, which is bad enough, but some are so poorly written that they essentially are runaway circular loops burning up CPU that can be used for other things. among these are the devious ways they attempt to prevent the user from right-clicking, saving elements, going ‘back’ into the cache, seeing what’s under a link, etc. The sum total is that we have allowed the powers-that-be to devolve the internet back to the single-tasking days of old, i.e., a browser or even a webpage believes it is the only application running on a user’s computer and everyone else be damned. But that’s another story.

    Texian, we are seeing how the scoundrels are trying to change our Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence Having studied with Chinese doctors and one said the worst 10 yrs. of his life because professionals (his family) were sent to the agriculture areas and knew nothing about growing food so millions starved to death, and the farmers sent to the city and knew nothing about business so even more millions starved to death. Or, as my husband says, the only good thing Mao did was required education for the people and believe me they value education and why so many are so much smarter than our ill-educated students. The communists/globalists want America in their hands to rape us and enslave us but too ignorant and/or stupid to realize they will be the ones to suffer if they continue along this track because we are AMERICANS!

      You have got it exactly correct Carrie2.

      The University of British Columbia is a first rate University in Vancouver.

      The vast majority of students are Asian high achievers, their parents have them in numerous extra curricular activities.

      I believe the average marks to get into U.B.C. are in excess of 90%

      It is known as a “ no fun” school. Schooling for them is a serious business.

    • More millions starved to death, according to my Chinese Chinese language teacher from Beijing, because Chairman Mao declared that Communism was a success and therefore rice would be free for all.

      Well! the rice disappeared immediately, she said, with a scornful laugh at the utter ignorance of Chmn Mao. As intellectuals, she and her husband were sent to the country, but in the disorder caused by the young Red Guards, their two children were abandoned and had to fend for themselves while their parents were in jail and working on farms.

      The Cultural Revolution was such a dreadful period for the Chinese, that to this day those who suffered through it, don’t “remember” it, much like many Holocaust survivors.

    I hear those cameras “clicking” at every press conference, and my question is:

    Why do the press need to take thousands of photos of Pres. Trump reading a statement? Are they just trying to make themselves appear to have a purpose in life? Is this “make-work” for photographers? There is no logical explanation.

    Other people their age are designing complex computer systems and performing brain surgery. These people are photographing a sitting man? What value is this adding? The sound is extremely annoying, and it’s a job that his 6 year old granddaughter, Arabella, could do.

    So disappointing to see “Javanka” sitting in the background. When I heard Ivanka interviewed by Tucker Carlson a couple of weeks ago, I didn’t agree with one thing she said. She’s a true, hard-left progressive true-believer. Scary that those two are involved in the administration.

  23. Chris Matthews: “… The other day when Trump came out with that tax bill of his, Pelosi said, or was it Chuck Schumer – it doesn’t matter … – ‘It’s a Ponzi scheme.’ Oh, you original little person,” said Matthews. “I am so tired of these people. Say something human. Say something that means something to you. Relate to people about what this tax thing will mean to their lives. They don’t even bother. It’s too much work. …”

    I want to support Trump in every way, and feel hugely grateful he’s our president. But I always have to keep my eyes open. Blind support is not the right road. So the one problem I had with his remarks was that North Korea is guilty of state sponsored terrorism because they’ve assassinated foreign leaders. I remind myself with open eyes that the US has assassinated many foreign leaders too. My hope is that Trump will conquer the CIA and put an end to this uncivilized practice.

    Treepers may be interested in this documentary just posted online from Channel News Asia. Very well done.

    Evidently, China’s Special Envoy Song Tao went to DPRK bearing gifts, but left empty-handed. Reports say he never was given an audience with Supreme Leader Rocketboy.

    This designation for NoKo means a wee bit more than meets the eye.

    Pres Trump is now authorized to use military force against NoKo using the AUMF (Authorization for Use of Military Force) against terrorism.

    Good-for-nothing Congress allowed Bush and Obama to use the AUMF at will, against any country their teeny weeny hearts desired.

    Now that Donald J. Trump is President, worthless Congress has threatened to end the AUMF, and has even contemplated passing a law forbidding the President use of atomic weapons w/o prior Congressional approval.

    Pres Trump has just called their bluff.
    And the best part is, Congress is too stoopid to realize what just happened. Betcha China and NoKo realizes it, though.

    Well-played, Pres Trump, well played.
