President Trump Remarks During Cabinet Meeting…

President Trump delivers remarks at the beginning of a cabinet meeting today. Several topics are covered including the safe return of three American detainees from North Korea; and the upcoming summit.

[Transcript] 11:37 A.M. EDT – THE PRESIDENT: Okay, thank you very much. We have a lot of things happening, as you know. But last night was a very big night for the Republican Party. Every candidate that we wanted won, and they did very well. There was tremendous enthusiasm.

And with the economy going so strong and so good with all of the things that are happening, including a tremendous foreign affairs picture. If you look at what’s going on with so many different elements, including the fact that, right now, flying back are three, what they were calling “hostages.” We call them “fine people.” Three really fine people. Seemed to be healthy.

They’ll be landing at two o’clock in the morning at Andrews Air Force Base, and I’ll be there to greet them. Mike will be with me. It will be, I think, a very special time — because nobody thought this was going to happen. And if it did, it would be years or decades, frankly. Nobody thought this was going to happen. And I appreciate Kim Jong-un doing this and allowing them to go.

We’ve picked a time. We’ve picked a place for the meeting, or “summit,” as you like to call it. And I think it’ll be very successful. But as I always say, “Who knows?” Who knows what’s going to happen. But it’s going to be a very important event.

Again, I think this is something that nobody thought was going to happen for years or more. And I really believe it’s going to be a great thing for North Korea, a great thing for South Korea and Japan. I want to thank President Xi. He was very helpful to us two days ago on something very specific. President Xi of China. China has been very helpful.

And we’re working trade with China. And they’re doing okay because they’re helping us, and I guess they’re probably doing a little bit better because they’re helping us. But they have really helped us on North Korea. We appreciate it and we appreciate President Xi.

I just spoke to President Moon and explained what was taking place with respect to the three gentlemen. And President Moon of South Korea was very, very happy to hear it. He, likewise, has been incredibly helpful.

So the relationships we have with Prime Minister Abe, President Moon, President Xi, I think it all goes into what is taking place right now. And we very much look forward to having the meeting between the United States and North Korea. And that will be announced over the next couple of days as to timing.

We have a lot of things going on within our country. We’ve very much toughened up the border, but the laws are horrible. The laws in this country for immigration and illegal immigration are absolutely horrible. And we have to do something about it — not only the wall, which we’re building sections of wall right now. We have $1.6 billion. We’re fixing a lot of wall that basically is non-existent because it’s been ripped to pieces. It was poorly built and it wasn’t — it was really only temporary, in some cases.

San Diego has asked us to go forward with their section of the wall in California. And rather than not doing that and letting them lobby for us with Governor Brown, we decided to do it. And we’ll have a little bit less of a lobby, but we’ll have a lot of people happy in San Diego.

We have, I think, the numbers coming out from the economy. And you’re seeing what’s going on; they’re extraordinary. The stock market is up almost 35 percent from the election, but I think companies are doing even better than that, and they’re really ready to rock.

The conference we had yesterday was a very important one. You look at the deal that we had with Iran, it was a one-sided deal that ultimately was going to lead to nuclear proliferation all over the Middle East. And they were talking about it; other countries were talking about it. It was going to lead to that. They are all very happy at what I did. That was a one-sided deal that we spent $150 billion and $1.8 billion in cash on getting done. And it was not good, and it was not appropriate.

And we’ll see how we do with Iran. Probably, we won’t do very well with them, but that’s okay too. They’ve got to understand life, because I don’t think they do understand life. If you look at what’s happening in the Middle East with Syria, with Yemen, with all of the places they’re involved, it’s bedlam and death. And we can’t allow that to happen.

So we have terminated a terrible, terrible deal that should have never, ever been made. And we will be putting on among the strongest sanctions that we’ve ever put on a country. And they’re going into effect very shortly. They’re mostly constituted and drawn already, and we’ll just have to see what happens.

But we can’t allow a deal to hurt the world. That’s a deal to hurt the world; that’s not a deal for the United States. That’s a deal to hurt the world and, certainly, Israel. You saw Benjamin Netanyahu get up yesterday and talk so favorably about what we did.

Some of the senators, I watch them now as they say, “Oh, he shouldn’t have done it.” But they don’t say it — the Democratic senators — they don’t say with their full throat; they don’t say it with heart. Because they have one problem: They were totally against it. Like Chuck Schumer was totally against the deal. He voted against the deal. He was fighting with Obama. In fact, I remember reading at the time they ended up in a fight together over this deal because he wanted to protect Israel. And he knows this deal is very bad for Israel and very bad for the Middle East. But I know that they voted against it, and then you’ll see Chuck Schumer say, “Oh, he shouldn’t have ended the deal.” It’s like, oh — perhaps he changed his mind. But, by the way, the deal only got worse.

So we have a lot of exciting things happening, and I think that’s going to be an exciting thing. And perhaps — and Iran will never say it because they’re great negotiators. Kerry never had a chance against the gentleman he was negotiating with. The first time I saw that man, I watched him on a certain show — a show of an anchor who is no longer with us. He was taken down. But it was an interesting show. And I looked at him, and after about three minutes of watching the show, I said, “There’s no way that Kerry can negotiate against this gentleman.” And that turned out to be a fact.

So we’re going to make either a really good deal for the world, or we’re not going to make a deal at all. And Iran will come back and say, “We don’t want to negotiate.” And of course, they’re going to say that. And if I were in their position, I’d say that, too, for the first couple of months, “We’re not going to negotiate.” But they’ll negotiate, or something will happen. And hopefully that won’t be the case.

So I just want to let you know the United States is strong. Our military is in a position that we haven’t had in a long time. We have $700 billion approved and $716 billion for next year, numbers that we’ve never had before. We’re rebuilding our military to a level that it’s, frankly, never been. And these are good times to have a strong military, and hopefully we’ll never have to use it. You know, peace through strength, which I believe in very strongly.

So we’re honored by the fact that the three gentlemen are coming home, and I look forward to seeing you — probably, some of you, maybe a lot of you. It’ll be two o’clock in the morning. It’ll be quite a scene, and it’ll be — to me, it’s very exciting because it represents something. It represents something very important to this country.

People never thought a thing like this could happen and can. People never thought you were going to have a situation where we’re having serious and positive communication with North Korea, and we are. What happens? Who knows. We have a chance at something really great for the world and great for North Korea, and great for everyone.

So I want to thank you all for being here, and we will see you at two o’clock in the morning. We’re very excited.

Q When is the summit going to take place?

THE PRESIDENT: We’re going to announce that in three days, Jon. Within three days.

Q Within three days?

THE PRESIDENT: We’re just working arrangements.

Q Will it be the DMZ?

THE PRESIDENT: It will not be there, no.

Q Do you deserve the Nobel Prize, do you think?

THE PRESIDENT: Everyone thinks so, but I would never say it. (Laughter.) You know what I want to do? I want to get it finished. The prize I want is victory for the world, not for even here. I want victory for the world. Because that’s what we’re talking about. So that’s the only prize I want.

Q Could something still scuttle this meeting, the summit?

THE PRESIDENT: Everything can be scuttled. Everything can be scuttled. Doesn’t mean — a lot of things can happen. A lot of good things can happen, a lot of bad things can happen. I believe that we have — both sides want to negotiate a deal. I think it’s going to be a very successful deal. I think we have a really good shot at making it successful. But lots of things can happen. And, of course, you’ll be the first to know about it if it fails.

But I think we have a really good chance to make a great deal for the world. Thank you very much.

Q What are you going to do if Iran starts up their nuclear program again?

THE PRESIDENT: Iran will find out. They’re going to find out. I don’t think they should do that. I would advise Iran not to start their nuclear program. I would advise them very strongly.

If they do, there will be very severe consequence. Okay?

Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you.

      So it wouldn’t be that surprising to hear that an “earthquake” (or several) happened to destroy their underground nuke facilities. It’s amazing how accurate those “earthquakes” can be.

        If the US has the technology to strike from space (Rods from God), then it is truly a game changer. Pinpoint elimination of the threat, with a simultaneous offer for peace, could redefine international relations. Is this why Trump is calling for a US Space Force, a new branch of the US military?

        But I’m not convinced that a super-weapon is the game changer in this case. Instead, it is the rapprochement between China and the US to work out a solution in Korea, to the benefit of all parties. Kim has met twice with Xi. No DPRK leader has visited China twice in such a short time, if ever. Xi shut off the economic pipeline to the DPRK…Trump said it was a 93% reduction, so no wonder Kim is not only jumping but asking “how high?”

        This is more than a game changer.

        Trump and Xi seem to be aiming for a paradigm shift if peace truly breaks out on the Peninsula.

        Abe met with Korea and China reps for the first time in many years yesterday, the first trilateral in about seven years. Why is that? Historical issues that Japan seems unable to come to grips with, for example, every year Dietmembers visiting Yasukuni with the offensive museum next door with another worldview of the Pacific War.

        Peace in Korea will have a huge impact the US-Japan Alliance…the only other Asian disputes are over uninhabited rocks that were previously under Imperial Japanese administration until Potsdam. Kuriles/Northern Territories with Russia, Dokdo/Takeshima with Korea, and Daiyu/Senkaku with Taiwan/China. Same with the South China Sea. Japan should join the peace train and give up on old Imperial possessions that are mostly uninhabited.

    Hypocrisy, lies, and dangerous rhetoric designed solely to hurt the President without regard for the safety of America, and the world.
    Senate minority jerk chuck schumer was vehemently against the agreement when the marxist obama was proposing it, now magically, he is lamenting its loss.
    Because schumer, and the democrat party yield all logic to their primary goal, which is to destroy the Constitutional Republic of America. They are against anything that makes America stronger

      As Ted Turner, founder of CNN and the UN Foundation bluntly put it during an interview with Audubon magazine.
      “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” – Source: The book You Don’t Say, by Fred Gielow, 1999, page 189.

      The US government did radiation exposure experiments on US Citizens. My Mother was one of their unknowing victims.

      “[…]The conclusions of this 2005 Chernobyl Forum study (revised version published 2006i) are in line with earlier expert studies, notably the UNSCEAR 2000 reportj which said that “apart from this [thyroid cancer] increase, there is no evidence of a major public health impact attributable to radiation exposure 14 years after the accident. There is no scientific evidence of increases in overall cancer incidence or mortality or in non-malignant disorders that could be related to radiation exposure.” As yet there is little evidence of any increase in leukaemia, even among clean-up workers where it might be most expected. However, these workers – where high doses may have been received – remain at increased risk of cancer in the long term. Apart from these, the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) says that “the great majority of the population is not likely to experience serious health consequences as a result of radiation from the Chernobyl accident. Many other health problems have been noted in the populations that are not related to radiation exposure.”[…]”

      Remember Congress (until PDJT) refused to pass a bill to harden our electrical grid.

    As I read and study the Bible , I notice that God is a God of contrasts . He deliberately creates contrast in order to highlight the truth to as many people as possible . It just seems to me that God is deliberately highlighting the contrasts between Pres. Trump and Pres. Obama . This is exactly what all of the liberals , and the progressives , and the socialists , and the rinos , and the never-trumpers feared . They always knew , in their heart of hearts , that they were never really on the side of middle Americans . Now they are constantly being exposed for all of the world to see their true colors : red , pink and watermelon green ( green on the outside but red on the inside ) . We are seeing , in real time , what a Pres. can do when he is totally committed to putting America first . Make America Great Again , by putting America first , and not a globalist agenda . Compare and contrast Carter and Reagan , Obama and Trump . Case closed .

    “Some of the senators, I watch them now as they say, ‘Oh, he shouldn’t have done it.’ But they don’t say it — the Democratic senators — they don’t say with their full throat; they don’t say it with heart. Because they have one problem: They were totally against it. Like Chuck Schumer was totally against the deal. He voted against the deal. He was fighting with Obama. In fact, I remember reading at the time they ended up in a fight together over this deal because he wanted to protect Israel.”

    POTUS illustrates the power of habitually telling the truth. No need to raise his voice or carry on, or make threats or defenses. Just say what is so in a timely way.

    The truth teller who has the ability and willingness to deal with reality on all fronts has effectiveness and power that weasels don’t. Those who are accustomed to “averaging things out”, compromising, manipulating, and being duplicitous as a habit are driven bonkers in the presence of such a man.

      Someone forecast that the parties were bound to divide on support for Israel as on ‘Right to Life’. No Dem can oppose abortion in any meaningful way; Israel will always be found wanting by moral pretenders and the Muslim Brotherhood fifth column.

      That’s going to put some interested players in a tight spot. Worms like Schumer and the AIPAC Dems will twist and slither. They have no future.

    Take away President Trumps keen business savvy, his razor sharp analytical mind, his bold determination & his almost spooky foretelling ability, & you’re still left with the crux of what Trump is all about & what he represents

    And that’s unbridled honesty coupled with common sense, true common sense, the kind that comes from someone with no alternative motives involved

    If you’re America’s President, you should be for America & always put America & Americans first. That’s real common sense & most Americans would answer “of course”

    Everything the President said here & most everything he says anytime always brings up the thought in my head of “of course”

    Americans who love America don’t put politics or ideology before what’s good for the country & the American people, like most politicians do. They don’t think about their political affiliation, their party or what others may think, like most politicians do. They say if it benefits Americans, then “of course”

    Trump will try to make friends with those outside of America, give them valid reasons for seeing things his way & will try to turn foes into allies, but he’ll never do the wrong thing for America. That’s simple born & bred American common sense

    President Trump doesn’t have a bullshit meter. He doesn’t have to weigh what he says before speaking or plan out speeches that appease everyone, because there’s only one audience he cares about, & that’s the American people

    He speaks like me. He speaks like you. He speaks like all of us, just regular folk with only the best interests of America & her people at heart

      Very well said. President Trump IS one of us.

      And the elite, by definition, aren’t.

      And though they love their imagined position, their isolation, evil, depravity, and growing lack of influence is driving them crazier…

    There has been a background question since the last election as to what obamas “legacy” will be.
    I’m thinking that he could be the very first president of the United States to live long enough to see every single thing that he enacted during his term overturned and thrown into the bin with the used diapers.

    What is wrong with the two men flanking our great president? He is announcing the greatest news and they are sitting there looking like their best friend just died.

    One man decides to make a difference and look what he achieves….
    Shame on our recent past presidents and our elected officials in Congress who broke our trust and did nothing to help Americans.They almost made me believe the job was too hard, too difficult, unattainable.
    Shame on you!!!
    God bless President Trump!

    “The prize I want is victory for the world”

    Yes, Mr. President, peace and prosperity for all who are willing to work toward those initiatives.

    I know the world got a lot safer for my children and future grandchildren when we came together and made our voices heard on Election Day.

    The (second) shot heard around the world.

    We of an academic persuasion view historical inflection-points in context-and-perspective. By Rule of 36, the postwar period ended yesterday, the 72nd VE Day from 1946. Just so, from 1789 to 1861, Constitutional ratification to Civil War, was 72 years; the late, unlamented Soviet Union persisted 72 years from 1917 – ’89. For good socio-cultural/economic reasons, this 24-year, three-generation demographic constant is inviolate.

    Anyhoo… for what it’s worth, we’re seeing posts comparing Trump to Charles Martel “the Hammer”,
    outnumbered 3-to-1 by Moorish Saracens at Tours in AD 732, whose victory preceded Charlemagne as Holy Roman Emperor, “the father of Europe” crowned AD 800 in Aachen (Aix-la-Chapelle). As Saracens gave way to Vikings, “heathen men”, from 799, Europe’s Continental Stage was set through Hastings in 1066 and medieval culture’s Anglo-Nordic aftermath.

    Bit of a stretch, wot? But stranger things than a Trump Renaissance have happened, and –let’s just say– the current tide of strictly unassimilable Muslump interlopers could use a broadsword swipe or two. Providence works in mysterious ways… but when The Hammer falls, it may as well be Thor’s as Charles Martel’s.
