President Trump Welcomes Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte To The White House…

Moments ago President Donald Trump welcomed Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte to the White House for his first official visit.


[Transcript] Oval Office – 12:28 P.M. EDT – PRESIDENT TRUMP: Okay, thank you very much. Its my great honor to have Giuseppe Conte of Italy. He’s a man who’s doing a fantastic job. I really want to thank you very much for being here. We’ve become friendly over the G7 meetings and some phone calls.

And I agree very much what you’re doing with respect to migration and illegal immigration, and even legal immigration. Italy has taken a very firm stance on the border, a stance a few countries have taken. And, frankly, you’re doing the right thing, in my opinion. And a lot of other countries in Europe should be doing it also. Some have taken that stance a long time ago, and they’re doing a lot better.

So I just want to thank you, Giuseppe, for being with us. It’s an honor. We have a lot to talk about having to do with trade, having to do with our military. You’re ordering planes, lots of planes. The United States has a very large deficit, as usual, with Italy — about $31 billion. And I’m sure we’ll straighten that out pretty quickly.

But we find it a great honor to have you with us. Thank you. Thank you, Giuseppe.

PRIME MINISTER CONTE: Thank you. It’s a big honor for me, of course. And thank you for this kind invitation, for your warm hospitality.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: You’ll always be treated warmly. Okay? Thank you very much, everybody. Thank you.

      The Italian Interior Minister–the Conservative, Trump-supporting, *young* Conservative leader of the Liga Nord/Northern League that is aligned with the center-right 5 Star party to form this current government that was sworn in on July 2nd and began working that day–Matteo Salvini is not only closing ports to the Soros-backed, NGO human trafficking ships from northern African countries (only 15K illegals in 2018 versus 85K that had arrived on Italy’s shores by this time in 2017), meeting with leaders in these countries which are points of origins for NGOs that they don’t support either, BUT he has now made a plea to the Italian citizenry to MAKE MORE ITALIAN BABIES as the Italian, along with the rest of the godless EU, birth rate has dropped so alarmingly…now *that* is a comprehensive Interior policy that all Italians can support, and one put forth by a brilliant and visionary Italian leader, Signor Salvini.

      Conte is a good man, but many great things are to come from Salvini–who will hopefully inspire other European leaders and bolster those who have already braved EU and Globalist intimidation.

      I wrote this on July 8th and absolutely stand by it!

      Brexit is a complete joke and Nigel Farage is absolutely right about PM May and her government. For those hoping the U.K. 🇬🇧 would be the one that takes down the European Union 🇪🇺and Globalism, you will be sadly mistaken. They are too far gone and there is no turning back for them.

      The European Union 🇪🇺 took the biggest punch in the face when the Italians formed their new government. Matteo Salvini is considered the DJT of Italy 🇮🇹. With the Italians joining the countries of Poland 🇵🇱, Hungary 🇭🇺, Slovenia 🇸🇮, Czech Republic 🇨🇿, Austria 🇦🇹 etc. as well as our country, the European Union 🇪🇺 and Globalism are truly starring at their extinction!

      From the article linked above:

      Salvini said on his Facebook page:

      “Two more ships with the flag of the Netherlands, Lifeline and Seefuchs, have arrived off the coast of Libya, waiting for their load of human beings abandoned by the smugglers. These gentlemen know that Italy no longer wants to be complicit in the business of illegal immigration, and therefore will have to look for other ports [not Italian]where to go.”

      Last week Italy already barred the Aquarius, a ship that carried 620 migrants. Later Spain offered to accept the ship in its port and allowing the migrants into the country. It is expected to arrive in Valencia on Sunday.

      During his election campaign, Salvini vowed to put Italians first and protect the country against illegal immigration. He promised to deport 500,000 migrants within 5 years.

      I totally agree. These clowns are making the USA look stupid. Give the media-rats and the press-anderthas printed guidelines on protocol and decorum during official meetings. If those guidelines are violated, the particular press-anderthal loses their press credentials. If the next press-anderthal from the same media-rat outfit violates the guidelines, that media group loses their press passes, period. JMHO

    I’m happy to report that I saw no brown shoes or sparkly socks anywhere near the Italian Prime Minister.

    I have no doubt that President Trump noticed this and will treat PM Conte accordingly; serious dress means PM Conte is ready for serious business.

    (I’m only partly joking about the shoes and socks. This guy really strikes me as “here on business.”
    Okay, Lady Treepers. Brief break in the serious political content portion of the comment thread. What’s the superficial vote on PM Conte’s looks? Hot or not? 🤷‍♂️

          I have a $3.00 ~30yr. old spiral bound paperback book from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Wild Resource Conservation Fund (*) & Game Commission called “Woodworking for Wildlife”. For bats the one or two designs they gave indicated the most important thing is to place it in early April in a location where it can reach at least 80-90 degrees F. during the day, about 12-15 feet off the ground.

    Giuseppe Conte – Wikipedia

    “During his speech before the investiture vote in the Italian Senate on 5 June, Conte announced his willingness to reduce illegal immigration and increase the contrast to human traffickers and smugglers. He also advocated a fight against political corruption, the introduction of a law which regulates the conflict of interests, a new bill which expands the right of self-defense, a taxes reduction and a drastic cut to politics’s costs, thanks to the annuities’ abolition.[61][62][63] Conte also proposed to lift off the international sanctions against Russia.[64]”

    I was there 2.5 years ago and here were my observations then:
    * Italians despise the migrant invasion. They were calling it the “muslim menace”
    * The way Italians talk, you would think the barbarian invasion happened recently. They often said the barbarians “made a real mess of the place” and they equate the immigrants with the barbarians.
    * Police presence in Italy is very, very heavy. There are 3 different forces and each are everywhere and heavily armed. They have no problem chasing the immigrants who are illegally selling knock off goods and alike, through the streets of some of the cities like Florence.
    * Police in Rome around the Vatican are more lenient than elsewhere because, as I was told, the Pope has asked the police to backoff around the Vatican. As a result, immigrants selling cheap goods will swarm you especially if you are alone and stop. That can’t get away with that in places like Florence where the camo-clad police chase them away from the corners.
    * There are few immigrants south of Rome – I am guessing the Southerners simply don’t tolerate them. Therefore, they are in Rome and up.
    * When I was in Rome, there were signs everywhere for a huge rally they had that next Sunday opposing open immigration. The billboards where provocative.

    What we are seeing now was completely predictable. They leftist traitors in Italy are a lot less prevalent and vocal than here (if they exist at all). The Italians were fed up even then and you could see things were coming to a head.

    That reporter towards the end shouting, “We’re leaving! We’re leaving!” is illustrative of their entitled attitude. They should be allowed to stand around in the WH shouting like sailors on leave, because they hate PT. The fact that they have to be literally shouted down and thrown out is evidence of how out of bounds they are. They’re also total hypocrites. There are several YouTube videos of Obama press conferences in which he derides reporters, who treat him with biblical levels of deference.
