EPIC Bilat #4- President Trump Speaks With President Ivan Duque Marquez of Colombia….

This is great. Perhaps one of the best bilat video segments in the administration so far.  President Trump is talking with President Ivan Duque Marquez of Colombia on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.   The media start asking questions that have nothing to do with U.S. Columbia relations. POTUS asks President Marquez if it’s ok to keep answering the questions, effectively turning into a mini-presser.

Relaxed and confident, MAGA President Trump delivers.  Columbia, Venezuela, Iran, North Korea, Democrats, Judge Kavanaugh… etc.  MUST WATCH:

[Transcript]  – 11:32 A.M. EDT – PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much. It’s a great honor for me to be with President Duque, who had a tremendous victory. He won by a lot. They love him in Colombia. And it’s an honor to have you with us. And I just want to congratulate you. That was a very big and powerful victory.

PRESIDENT DUQUE: Thank you, Mr. President.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: So the people are agreeing with what you stand for and what you do stand for. Very, very powerful against drugs and drug trafficking. And you’ve been a friend to the United States, and we look forward to working with you, Mr. President.

PRESIDENT DUQUE: Thank you so much, Mr. President. I appreciate those words, and I also want to thank you for your interest in the best of our country. We want to strengthen the ties between Colombia and the United States. We cherish democratic values. And we also share this important effort against illegal drugs throughout the world.

So I commend your words, and I thank for the response and the support we’ve gotten from your administration in Colombia.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you, Mr. President.

PRESIDENT DUQUE: Thank you so much, Mr. President.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Good luck. Good luck.

Q President Trump, have you thought about a military intervention to Venezuela — or in Venezuela?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, we’re looking very strongly at Venezuela. It’s a horrible thing that’s going on there. It’s a very disruptive, dangerous — it’s a horrible place right now. And this used to be — I remember not so long ago, Mr. President, that was the richest country in South America by a lot, and now it’s a country that’s going through tremendous turmoil. People are dying. People are being killed. They’re also dying of hunger and lots of other things. The medical is in horrible shape.

We will always be looking at it. We have been looking at it. And we’ll see what happens.

But what is going on in Venezuela really is unacceptable. And I know from the standpoint of Colombia and other nations fairly close by, it’s very unacceptable also.

Q What’s the most important thing for Maduro to do? What should Maduro do?

Q Every option is still on the table, Mr. President? Every option is still on the table against Maduro’s regime? Every option, including military option?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: But, see, Maduro — if you look at it, you’re asking about the regime. The Maduro regime is obviously is not doing the job.

First of all, it’s brutal, and people are seeing what’s happening. It’s a horrible, horrible thing to witness. It’s one of the truly bad places in the world today. And there are some other pretty bad places. But it’s not acceptable to us, and it’s not acceptable to many of the surrounding countries. Many of those countries, including Colombia, are taking in refugees who are literally starving. They’re literally starving.

It’s having a big impact on other countries. So — and they’re doing a very good job with what they have to work with. They don’t have that much to work with, but they’re doing a good job. They’re trying to help.

Q What do you want Maduro to do? What should Maduro do?

Q Is the United States (inaudible) Colombia’s drug policy?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: What I want — what I want and what we’ve discussed, and one of the reasons I was so happy to see the President’s victory — that was a great victory and there was a very worldwide, world-renowned victory because of his strong stance on drugs.

Now, if he comes through, we think he’s the greatest. If he doesn’t come through, he’s just another President of Colombia. (Laughter.) But I think he’s going to come through. I really do.

PRESIDENT DUQUE: Let me add something there, Mr. President. And I think this is a very important message. Yesterday, 130 countries signed this amazing declaration. So we’re not going to drop the towel. And we want to continue the efforts against illegal drugs. It’s not only prevention but it’s also dismantling the cartels. So we’re very committed.

And since the first day of our administration, we’ve begun with very important policies to dismantle those cartels in Colombia. And also, we’re going to face prevention.

And something very important, Mr. President, that I want to share with all the press corps here: We are going to sign a decree this week that allows the Colombian police to confiscate any of those in Colombian streets, because we don’t want to see more consumers in Colombia. We don’t want to see more families being destroyed by illegal drugs.

Q Are you going to talk about FARC and ELN, the peace process?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Are you asking me that question? We’re going to be talking about everything.

PRESIDENT DUQUE: But let me —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: We’ll be talking about everything.

PRESIDENT DUQUE: Mr. President, if I may take that.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Go ahead.

PRESIDENT DUQUE: And this a very important message: ELN is a terrorist group that has been killing Colombian people. They have been introducing kidnappings in the last 17 months while they were negotiating with the past administration.

And I have said they have to put an end to all their criminal activities and they have to free all the persons that are kidnapped. Otherwise, there will be no chance for any negotiation with them.

Q President Trump, are there going to be more sanctions for Venezuela, Maduro, and his (inaudible)?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: We’re spending a lot of time and effort on Venezuela. A lot of time and effort.

What is going on in Venezuela is not acceptable on a humanitarian basis or on any basis. So we’re looking at that very, very strongly, yes.

Q How are the plans going for the second summit with Kim Jong Un?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: So we’ve been communicating, and we are doing very well with North Korea. And we have some very good feelings going on with North Korea — far greater than the media understands or knows. And I’m not blaming the media for that. Actually, in this case, I’m not all, because we have been doing communication. Letters have been going back and forth, and conversations have been happening.

And I can only say — you know, look, in the end, who knows? Who knows? But I can say this: We’re doing very well. Far better than anybody would understand.

Now, if you just take a look at the outer signs — no nuclear testing, no missiles, no rockets, hostages back.

We’re getting back the remains of our great heroes from many, many years ago. Already some have been notified. Some families have been notified that they found, in many cases, the grandfather, or whoever it may be, the family member. But we’re getting back the remains.

And it was a really — Vice President Pence went to Hawaii and he did an incredible job. That was one of the most beautiful ceremonies. I’ve had people come to me — in fact, just today, they came to me and they said, that was one of the most beautiful ceremonies they’ve ever seen. The remains coming back, the way the military handled it, Mike’s dignity, it was an incredible — really, a very important event, in my opinion. But it was so beautiful.

But many people have told me that. Many people have said that was one of the most beautiful things that they’ve seen and it was very special. And we’ve gotten that back, and a lot more of our great heroes will be coming back. They’re working very hard to do that.

I can only say — you know, I listen to commentators, and I’m not blaming them because we can’t tell them, and we don’t want to tell them what’s going on. But we’ve had communication that nobody will know about that is extraordinary.

And if you look at just last year, at this exact time, my words were slightly different having to do with the events taking place in North Korea. Slightly different. I was going to point that out but I didn’t even want to. I didn’t want to bring up the past.

But there’s —

Q Mr. President —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Excuse me — but there’s been a tremendous difference if you look at from one year to the next. A tremendous difference. And again, far greater than anybody really would understand, because we know what’s happening behind the scenes.

Q Could the same trajectory happen with Iran, where you criticized them very heavily today, but a year from now you could be talking to them?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, I hope we have a similar trajectory. I think Iran should be something that happens. They’re not doing well.

So when I became President, if you look at the day before, or the day after, but if you look at that period of time — less than two years ago — everybody looked at Iran as they’re just going to take over the Middle East.

I’d speak to General Kelly; I’d speak to everybody. Everybody would just — it was like: They’re going to take over the Middle East. They’re going to take over Syria, they’re going to take over Yemen, they’re going take over Iraq. They’re going to take over everything.

And that’s not happening. Remember the statement, “They’re looking for the Mediterranean”? That’s very far away. They wanted to have the Mediterranean as part of their doorstep. Not going to happen. It’s not going to happen.

And Iran is a much different country today than it was a year ago. Now they have riots in the street. They have horrible inflation — the worst in the world. They have — their currency is a disaster. Everything about Iran is failing right now.

They’re, frankly, bringing back their warriors, their soldiers, because they have no choice, because their country is rioting in every city. They have other problems. They’re not looking for the Mediterranean so much anymore.

So I think that, at some point, they’re going want to negotiate. I have said “no,” so far. It was me that said, “no,” not them. The media covered that incorrectly. But these are — that’s relatively a minor mistake by the media. But it was me that said “no,” not them.

And I think that at some point we will have meaningful discussions and probably do a deal. I don’t see how it works for them otherwise, because otherwise they’re going to be in the worst economic trouble of any country anywhere in the world. Okay?

Q Mr. President —

(Cross-talk.)

PRESIDENT TRUMP: You don’t mind this, do you? You don’t mind this? Do you?

PRESIDENT DUQUE: No, no, no.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I have to ask Colombia if he thinks — have you ever even thought about Iran? (Laughter.)

See, the nice part about that — you can worry about drugs and do a great job, but you don’t have to worry about Iran and various other places.

PRESIDENT DUQUE: We don’t have to worry about (inaudible).

Q President Trump, would do you think of sending troops to Colombia and maybe from there managing —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Say it again. What?

Q Would you think of sending troops to Colombia, and maybe from there trying to manage the relationship with Venezuela? Maybe getting closer —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I don’t want to say that. I don’t like to talk about military. Why should I talk to you about military? I’m going to tell you like President Obama — he used to say exactly what he was going to do — and then it would be 10 times tougher to do it. I don’t do that. (Laughter.)

Q But how —

(Cross-talk.)

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Quiet. Hey, excuse me. Just quiet for a second.

Q I’m sorry.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: You’re so — nice and easy, I’ll come to you next. Okay?

Q Okay. Thank you.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Go ahead.

Q President Trump, President Duque, insofar as the demands against Maduro in the International Court, are you going to support as well?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I can’t understand your question. What?

Q The President Duque is supporting a demand — a claim against Maduro in the —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: A claim? A claim?

PRESIDENT DUQUE: We’re denouncing him at the International Court.

Q His denouncement.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, if he’s denouncing them, that’s fine. I mean, I’m denouncing him. Everybody is denouncing him. So if you’re denouncing him, join the crowd. Right? (Laughter.)

Yes, go ahead. Go ahead.

Q President Trump, I’m sorry, I don’t want to talk about the military action again, but how dangerous is Maduro’s regime for national security? And what you are going to do against him to stop him?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, it’s dangerous for their security. It’s dangerous for their people’s security. It’s a regime that, frankly, could be toppled very quickly by the military if the military decides to do that.

And you saw how the military spread as soon as they heard a bomb go off way above their head. That military was running for cover. That’s not good. I don’t think the Marines would have run. What do you think, General Kelly, do the Marines run when they hear a bomb go off?

GENERAL KELLY: They don’t know how to run.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: They don’t know how. (Laughter.) You know what they do? They run toward the bomb. Right? That’s even better.

Q Mr. President, did you see Judge Kavanaugh’s interview last night?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I saw Judge Kavanaugh last night.

Q Can you give us some thoughts, sir?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I think he’s just a wonderful human being. I mean, I think it’s horrible what the Democrats have done. It’s a con game they’re playing. They’re con — they’re really con artists. They’re trying to convince — you know, they don’t believe it themselves, okay? They know he’s a high-quality person. They don’t believe it. It’s just resist and obstruct.

They’re playing a con game, and they play it very well. They play it, actually, much better than the Republicans. They’re lousy politicians, and they have lousy policy. They don’t know what the hell they’re doing. They want to get rid of ICE. They want to get rid of law enforcement. They don’t want to take care of our military. They want to raise your taxes. But they’re good at one thing — they’re good at one thing: that’s obstruction and resisting and con.

He’s one of the highest quality people. You know, when he said that really what he was focused on was trying to be number one in his class at Yale, to me that was so believable. I understand college very well, and I understand being number one in your class, and I understand a lot of things. When he said that, I understood exactly what — he was so truthful. And I think it came out. I mean, I hope it came out.

But for the Democrats to be trying to make him into something — let’s be nice about it — that he’s not. He’s a high-quality person. He’s a great intellect.

You’re also not seeing him on his footing. This isn’t his footing. He’s never been here before. He’s never had any charges like this. I mean, charges come up from 36 years ago that are totally unsubstantiated.

I mean, you, as watching this, as the President of a great country, Colombia, you must say, “How is this possible?” Thirty-six years ago? Nobody ever knew about it? Nobody ever heard about it? And now a new charge comes up, and she says, “Well, it might not be him.” And there were gaps, and she said she was totally inebriated and she was all messed up. And she doesn’t know it was him, but it might have been him. “Oh, gee, let’s not make him a Supreme Court judge because of that.”

This is a con game being played by the Democrats. Also, take a look at the lawyers. These lawyers are the same lawyers that have been fighting for years. They keep fighting. Take a look at the lawyers. And it’s a shame that you can do this to a person’s life.

And I’ll tell you, maybe even more important, who is going to want to go before the system to be a Supreme Court judge or to be a judge, or to be even a politician? I can tell you that false accusation and false accusations of all types are made against a lot of people. This is a high-quality person.

And I certainly hope — I certainly hope — it would be a horrible insult to our country if this doesn’t happen. And it will be a horrible, horrible thing for future political people, judges, anything you want. It would be a horrible thing. It cannot be allowed to happen.

And the Democrats are playing a con game. C-O-N. A con game. And it’s a shame. And they know it’s a con game. They know he’s high quality. And they wink at each other. They’re winking. They know it’s a con game.

Go ahead.

Q Should the second accuser be allowed to testify on Thursday? Would you welcome that?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, I look at the second accuser — the second accuser has nothing. The second accuser doesn’t even know — she thinks, maybe, it could have been him, maybe not. She admits that she was drunk. She admits time lapses. There were time lapses.

This is a person and this is a series of statements that’s going to take one of the most talented, one of the greatest intellects, from a judicial standpoint in our country, going to keep him off the United States Supreme Court.

You know, I said something this morning: He has the chance to be one of the greatest justices ever in the United States Supreme Court. What a shame. And what a shame it is for the so many other people whose world that isn’t. That’s not his world, and it’s not their world.

These are legitimate people. They’re not in the world of con, and the world of obstruct, and the world of resist. He never thought this was even a possibility. He’s startled. He can’t believe this is happening.

His wife is devastated. His children are devastated. I don’t mean they’re, like, “Oh, gee. I’m a little unhappy.” They’re devastated. And it’s because these Democrats — and they know. They know. When I see Schumer, who never even saw this woman, “I believe her 100 percent,” and I see these other senators that I deal with on a daily basis — I know them better than they know themselves — it’s just a game for them. But it’s a very dangerous game for our country.

Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you very much.

END – 11:50 A.M. EDT

      100% agreed. MY President speaks for ME! Yes … in plain speech … this is a CON job on Kavanaugh. A … C-O-N … con job. Because that’s ALL the Demoncraps have … LIES and FAKERY. Brett Kavanaugh has led a life of TOTAL integrity. Nothing whatsoever in his entire life suggests he is even capable of this behaviour. And if there is one thing Democrap Sluts HATE … it’s morality and integrity. These screaming harpys live lives of sluts and pigs … then look to blame someone (read: men) for their shortcomings. This “victim” lived a life of a slut, that is in verifiable evidence. So much of a slut, that she needed (still needs) years of therapy. She must just HATE a righteous, upright, successful man with a successful marriage and beautiful children like Judge Kavanaugh. Their HATE for a righteous Christian man must just seethe within their veins.

      Tru Dat. The last few minutes of the President’s response was direct, from the heart, and absolutely undeniably true. Reminded me of Clarence Thomas’s words in calling out Teddy KKK and his democrat comrades in their attempt to lynch “an uppity Negro who dares to think for himself”. The evil emanating from the modern day democrat party and the dem operative media is palpable. It smells of sulphur and serves the Prince of Lies.

        This is why he is POTUS. Can you imagine any other Republican candidate being this strong and blunt?

        Also, Trump nails it when he say’s that the Dems are playing a dangerous game. However, they will only continue to do so if there are not serious ramifications for this outrageous smear. Its up to us to vote these bastards out. But shouldn’t any lawyer representing these women be disbarred for bringing this kind of garbage forward? Kavanaugh is a sitting Federal judge. Can you just smear a Federal judge without a shred of evidence without any consequences? Even if they are not successful in preventing Kavanaugh’s confirmation, the Dems are signalling to any future SCOTUS nominee that they will make their lives a living hell and perhaps some will decline – and I have to say that I wouldn’t blame them – but if you disbar these schiester lawyers, perhaps they will think twice about this sort of baseless crap.

Thus legitimizing her claims and sinking Kavanaugh. She should NEVER been allowed a televised public spectacle to “make her case”. This circus tent is NOT what the Senate is supposed to be.

          If ANY (R) Senator still had any BALLS … and the BEST interest of the Amican Justice system … they should go RIGHT at her handlers, and rip em a new for this ridiculous shit show.

We’re in the final stages of a life and death battle. Kavanaugh and his family are on the front lines. I’d like to hear from people who are out of the direct line of fire but on the battle field fighting for him and for POTUS. Imho when the battle is raging and there is only 42 days left to win the comments of value are reports from local battlefields that uplift and encourage.

      I have been thinking about Kavanaugh’s young daughters. They are being attacked they are being frightened they are being threatened and they see their father and mother being attacked. Do these idiot Dems that claim to care for women have any idea what this is doing to these young girls ? this is every bit as bad as any assault on a young woman which they claim dishonestly that they are trying to protect. I truly hate what these ignorant facist degenerates are doing to this family and their children. But I am sure that Kavanaugh prevail and that this will be a lifelong lesson to his daughters that you fight through this Haze of corruption.hate and ignorance because it’s the right thing to do. May God bless his family protect them and give comfort and protection to these young girls.

    You could tell President Trump was getting upset at the very end when speaking of Mrs Kavanaugh and their children and rightly so. I think the Dems and their MSM henchmen are completely alone in their advocacy of these lying women. The American people see and get what is happening here and these 11th hour sexual assault accusations where ever they turn up are getting old and transparent.

    Martha Mccallum never should have gone there. Judge K never should have been put on the spot to answer such a question in front of the world. (I’m sure every knows the question referencing) With his grace and such honest and forthright person he still fully answered. Shameful…
    I like Martha, but that was a low point for her and a shot at the Judge IMHO.
    I blame this primarily on the 3 idiots, Murkowski, Flake and Collins if not for their indecisive political BS, this family would not have been put through this.

      It was sickening and very disturbing to see a great American be stripped bare. Boy oh boy did the nasty left zero right in on that very passage … that monotonous late night stubble face couldn’t ‘resist’ going straight to the gutter where they live. Not terribly different from how terrorists operate when they film demoralization. Something profound is missing in people who cannot recognize they have lost their humanity. Soulless.

      PT saying they are in a different “world of con” “world of obstruction” “world of resistance” really coined it. People watching that last nite were appalled at JK’s revelation and pained that anyone could be subject to this kangaroo social justice hit job. It enrages normal people and it feels like that may be what’s building. Revulsion. It’s under people’s skin and rattling our bones… not to be ignored or forgotten.

        Keep talking about the vicious, Satanic, freak show the Democrats are putting on whenever you are in public. I advise framing your remarks as “the Democrats really need a lesson that this is NOT OK. They need to have a huuuge midterm loss. No wonder so many Democrats have joined the #walkaway movement.” This framing avoids triggering strangers who may hate Trump and Republicans. It allows them to remain open to a conversation.

      I respectfully ddisagree. Senator Grassley and McConnell have been pitch perfect in the way they’ve handled this. They’ve given the Democrats all the rope they need to hang themselves. They’ve allowed the Democrats to reveal how vicious they are. They’ve allowed time for apolitical people to tune in and be shocked. If they’d tried to push things none of this would have happened and they would have given the Left a convincing narrative that old, white, Republican men don’t care about women and protect rapists. Thankfully the Senators care about winning and were willing to ignore their idiot, non strategic, base.

        How about a different viewpoint on BO and Kerry? Let them run with those foolish enough to listen to them. Think about the damage those leaders who follow their advise are doing to their own countries.

        Canada, Turkey, Iran and all those who have listen to their advice are in or about to be in economic meltdown. I can’t think of a faster way to destroy the leaders and/or the countries that wish us ill. Nor a quicker way to bankrupt those who fund them.

    The most interesting thing was not that PDJT remembered the President of Columbia was also there for a bilat and asked his permission to continue answering US centric questions rather than about drugs and Venezuela. That was second most interesting thing because it shows his total situational awareness, always inside the other’s OODA loop.

    It was that the entire international press (many here with heavily Spanish accented English, of course) are following PDJT on NoKo, on Iran, on SCOTUS! Shows that PDJT has in less than two years moved USA back to its proper place at the global center of trade, economics, foreign policy, and just about everything else. China’s bid for second place is falling short in multiple ways, while Germany and Russia have just about been removed from the leadership game board.

    And third most interesting (FWIW) was PDJT always giving copious credit to others when due. In this mini 17 minute presser, the President of Columbia, Kim, General Kelly, and VP Pence. And discredit when due, like specifically to Chuck Schumer. Lesser Lions would not do so. By comparison, Obama’s most recent ‘rally’ ~30 minute speech had (IIRC) 113 I or me references to delight the ~700 who ‘packed’ his 7000 seat venue. This stark contrast is why.

    I listened to the last 5 minutes of President Trump’s endorsement of Judge Kavenaugh several times. It was heartbreaking, because I don’t think I’ve ever witness a speech by him where he showed hist heart and feelings on his sleeve and the total pain he feels Judge Kavenaugh is going through and the devastation of his wife and daughters. He can’t help but take it personally. He nomination him. It has touched him greatly.

    His intensity of truth in exposing the resistant and obstructing Ds was equally as touching because it was strong truth with intense feeling. Everyone in the room was quiet. Everyone believed him, what he said.

    May God bless those that bless Him and curse those that curse Him (Deut 27/28). May God’s will be seen to His glory in fulfillment of His Word in those verses. May He utterly destroy the evil presented against Judge Kavenaugh. May God eliminate it and it be His will that J. Kavenaugh be totally exonerated and exalted to the Supreme Court to bring God’s righteous to this country through our justice system. I pray this in Jesus Name, Amen.
