President Trump Impromptu Presser Traveling to Quantico…

Yesterday President Trump met with all prior leadership of the Secret Service in the Oval Office. Today President Trump heads to FBI HQ to give them attaboys. Tonight President Trump heads to Camp David for the weekend.

President Trump paused on the South Lawn for an impromptu presser while headed to Marine-One, prior to his departure to the FBI HQ at Quantico Virginia, to talk to the media pool.  Strong comments about FBI’s prior leadership. Video and Transcript:

.

[Transcript] THE PRESIDENT: Well, it’s a shame what’s happened with the FBI. But we’re going to rebuild the FBI. It will be bigger and better than ever. But it is very sad when you look at those documents. And how they’ve done that is really, really disgraceful, and you have a lot of very angry people that are seeing it. It’s a very sad thing to watch, I will tell you that.

And I’m going today, on behalf of the FBI, their new building. But when everybody — not me — when everybody — the level of anger at what they’ve been witnessing with respect to the FBI is certainly very sad.

Q Should Roy Moore concede?

THE PRESIDENT: I think he should. He tried. I want to support — always, I want to support the person running. We need the seat. We’d like to have the seat. I think we’re doing very well on the tax. We’ll see what happens. But I think we’re doing very well. It’s something that’s going to be monumental. It will be the biggest tax decrease, or tax cut, in the history of our country.

But as far as Roy Moore, yeah, it’s certainly — I would certainly say he should.

Q Is the special counsel biased?

THE PRESIDENT: You’ll have to make that determination. We’re hoping for a very — let’s put it this way: There is absolutely no collusion. That has been proven. When you look at the committees, whether it’s the Senate or the House, everybody — my worst enemies, they walk out, they say, “There is no collusion but we’ll continue to look.” They’re spending millions and millions of dollars.

There is absolutely no collusion. I didnt make a phone call to Russia. I have nothing to do with Russia. Everybody knows it. That was a Democrat hoax. It was an excuse for losing the election, and it should have never been this way, where they spent all these millions of dollars.

So now even the Democrats admit there’s no collusion. There is no collusion — that’s it. And we got to get back to running a country.

What we have found, and what they have found after looking at this, really, scam, is they found tremendous — whatever you want to call it; you’re going to have to make up your own determination — but they found tremendous things on the other side. When you look at the Hillary Clinton investigation, it was — I’ve been saying for a long time — that was a rigged system, folks. That was a rigged system.

When you look at what they did with respect to the Hillary Clinton investigation, it was rigged. And there’s never been anything like it in this country that we’ve ever found before. It’s very, very sad. Very, very sad.

Q Mr. President, when did you find out that Michael Flynn lied to the FBI? When did you find out?

THE PRESIDENT: What else is there? You know the answer. How many times has that question been asked?

Go ahead.

Q Have you seen the final tax bill?

THE PRESIDENT: I have. I have seen it. I think it’s going to do very, very well. I think that we are going to be in a position to pass something as early as next week, which will be monumental.

Q Marco Rubio, Mike Lee?

THE PRESIDENT: I think they’ll be great. They’re great people. They want to see it done. I know them very well. I know how they feel. These are great people and they want to see it done, and they want to see it done properly.

Go ahead.

Q Do you support talks with North Korea without preconditions?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, we’re going to see what happens with North Korea. We have a lot of support. There are a lot of nations that agree with us — almost everybody. We can’t let that happen. And we’re going to see what happens with North Korea. We hope it works out.

Q (Inaudible) child tax credit?

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah, I think we will. I think we will. The child tax credit, just so you understand, the Democrats have done nothing in terms of children, in terms of child tax credit. We’re putting in a tremendous child tax credit, and it is increasing on a daily basis.

Q How was your call with Vladimir Putin?

THE PRESIDENT: It was great. He said very nice things about what I’ve done for this country in terms of the economy, and then he said also some negative things in terms of what’s going on elsewhere. But the primary point was to talk about North Korea, because we would love to have his help on North Korea. China is helping. Russia is not helping. We’d like to have Russia’s help — very important.

Q About Michael Flynn — would you consider a pardon for Michael Flynn?

THE PRESIDENT: I dont want to talk about pardons for Michael Flynn yet. We’ll see what happens. Let’s see. I can say this: When you look at what’s gone on with the FBI and with the Justice Department, people are very, very angry.

Thank you very much, everybody. Thank you.

END 9:27 A.M. EST

    Trying very hard to understand the “child credit” reference. Many comments here yesterday in regard to Little Rubio on the scene again did NOT support “child credit” giving money to those who do not pay taxes seemed to be what was wrong. But it did not seem to be a problem for President Trump.

      I think President Trump is trying to close the deal. If he can get 80%-90% of his package, he’ll close the deal. The ‘child credit’ may or may not not be a deal breaker. Prepare for a shutdown if it is.

      And don’t think for a New York minute that President Trump won’t go back to the table for more if we can get some supportive (R)s elected in 2018.

    I love our president so much. To be alive at this time, watching him kick ass (pardon) is a great gift from above.

    I’ll never question any decision he makes because we know his heart is in the right place.

    So our President and his team where able to close the deal and now have not only Marco Rubio on board but Bob Corker from TN as well! Folks by Thursday next week, our President will have the opportunity to sign his first big piece of legislation. Another promise kept for the American people.

    He will absolutely close out the year at 3% GDP during his first year in office! Next year he will reach 4% GDP and we may very easily be humming at 5% to 6% in 2019 and beyond!

    Absolutely amazing!

    Gotta say I love that photo with POTUS and all of the former secret service agents. They know they have his respect. Glad to see that it looks like we may just have the votes in the senate. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we can pass it with flying colors in both chambers even if we do need VP’s help in the senate.
