G20 Bilat #4 – President Trump Talks to Chancellor Merkel…

People from the White House are scheduled to talk to Merkel’s bosses on Tuesday December 4th, so it’s likely Chancellor Merkel wants to know what the conversation will be about.

.

[Transcript] Buenos Aires, Argentina – 1:41 P.M. AST – PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, thank you very much everybody. It’s a great honor to be with Chancellor Merkel, who is my friend. We have a great relationship and a great working relationship, I think very important. And we are talking trade. We’re talking defense. We’re talking about many things.

We have a tremendous trade imbalance, but we’re going to get that straightened out. It’ll be better and better, I think, as time goes by. Our military relationship is very good. I think we all understand each other.

And it’s an honor to be with the Chancellor. She’s done an incredible job. Highly respected by everybody, including me. So I just want to say it’s a great honor, Angela. Thank you very much.

CHANCELLOR MERKEL: You’re welcome.

(As interpreted.) Well, let me say I’m very glad we have the opportunity for this bilateral meeting. We shall address issues related to trade, multilateral issues, and also fair trade and the World Trade Organization. We will also talk about bilateral relations, Ukraine, Syria, and the violations of the INF treaty by Russia.

So there’s quite a lot to do, quite a lot on our plate for this relatively short time.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Good. Thank you very much. Thank you very much everybody. Thank you.

Q Mr. President, have you spoken to President George W. Bush?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Yes, I have. And Jeb also. And I expressed deepest sympathies. Angela and I were just talking about it. He was a wonderful man. And you may want to just explain your little meeting with him. I found it very interesting.

CHANCELLOR MERKEL: Yes. I was in (inaudible), in the White House, visiting George Bush. And he’s the father, or one of the fathers, of the German unification, and we will never forget that.

THE PRESIDENT: I found that very interesting.

So we extended our best wishes. And he was — he was a very fine man. I met him on numerous occasions. He was just a high-quality man who truly loved his family. One thing that came through loud and clear, he was very proud of his family and very much loved his family. So he was a terrific guy and he’ll be missed. And he led a full life, and a very exemplary life too, I will say.

And we’ve decided — as you know, we were going to have a big press conference today, which I actually looked forward to because we’ve made tremendous progress at the G20 with many nations. And we were going to have a very big press conference, and out of respect for President Bush, we’ve cancelled it here and we’ll have it back in Washington at some time in the near future. Sometime after the funeral service. Okay?

Q Do you regret any of your comments about Bush or his family in the past?

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much, everybody. Thank you.

Q Mr. President, are you still planning to meet with President Xi today?

THE PRESIDENT: We will be meeting with President Xi tonight. I will be, and my group — small group. And he will have a small group of representatives and we’ll be talking about a thing called trade, and probably other things also. But primarily trade.

And it’s a very important meeting. But again, the fact that we lost a President who truly was a wonderful person, a wonderful man, a great man, it really puts a damper on it, to be honest with you.

So we’re going to have the meeting tonight, and then I’ll be going back to Washington. And we can all meet sometime during the week or shortly thereafter.

Thank you all very much. Thank you.

END – 1:45 P.M. AST

      No need for regret to the total fake family “of Texas…….

      Suspected this knowing human nature of political animals and American political history post WWII to 2008.

      “….What really happened? It was the pilots job to hold the plane level and slow it down so the crew could get out. Most certainly, the radioman was helping the gunner with his chute when Bush panicked and left the plane. Then the plane rolled into a dive giving the crew no chance. This story went through the fleet and all the Avenger pilots i knew were shocked at what they heard. I heard speculation of a Courts-Martial.

      Bush was very young. By his own admission, he reacted under stress. It is terrifying to have the cockpit fill with smoke. Possibly, he can be excused for reacting to fear and accepting it as another war time tragedy – but he has been glorified on the History channel, a book is being published, and worst of all, an aircraft carrier is to be named for him. This is unbelievable!! Bush performed badly and was certainly no hero.

    What can you expect from a country who wants to ban men standing up to urinate? Merkel has neutered her country and given it to the refugees. I am in awe that our great President can keep a straight face while paying Merkel unearned compliments!

    I know our President will remind Angela that because her country only contributes 1% of the required 2% GDP towards NATO, their military equipment is in dire need. That POS plane ✈️ that had to land was one of their military planes. If the PM’s plane ✈️ is in terrible shape, just imagine everything else.

    Our President will also send his regards about how putrid their 3rd Quarter real GDP rate was compared to ours.

    Our President will also remind her that her country will be in a major recession for the remainder of her miserable term as PM.

    From the article linked above:

    Economists are taking an increasingly pessimistic view of the German economy, with the top German institutes last month revising down their 2018 growth forecast and warning that an escalation of trade friction involving the United States could cause a major recession in Germany and Europe.

    A source has also told Reuters that the government will revise down its growth forecasts for this year and next. The government is expected to announce its updated growth projections on Thursday.

    She’s trying to project comfort but clearly isn’t comfortable. A lot of fidgeting, including with the paper and the pen. In the beginning, she puts her hand to her hair.
    At 3:32, as Trump mentions meetings about trade, she completely pulls away from him.
    This is not a confident individual and Trump knows it.

    Poor idiot Merkel thinking Bush was behind german reunification. Vernon Walters was quoted one month before the wall came down that reunification was not on the cards. Hell, germany was the linchpin of the sacred Cold War. Genscher and Gorbachov “colluded” to bring the end of World War 2 to a final end. And Bush was shocked! Genscher brought him a chunk of the wall, and Bush said “How nice”. HA!!!!!

    “Hey there childless commie! How’s that open borders globalist thing going for you in Germany?”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angela_Merkel

    In 1968, Merkel joined the Free German Youth (FDJ), the official communist youth movement sponsored by the ruling Marxist–Leninist Socialist Unity Party of Germany.[25][26][27] Membership was nominally voluntary, but those who did not join found it difficult to gain admission to higher education.[28]

    Later, at the Academy of Sciences, she became a member of its FDJ secretariat. According to her former colleagues, she openly propagated Marxism as the secretary for “Agitation and Propaganda”.[31]

    Have you noticed that the meetings with heads of state always follow a pattern, especially in the statements before and after. Trump says how much he admires the fish he is about to gut and how he really believes they like each other and will go forward with mutual admiration and cooperation.

    In between he takes the other official to the American woodshed and gives them a few whacks about where their country stands in relation to American military and economic power and the leverage it gives him to speak to them about how the cow ate the cabbage. His demands are negotiable only as far as they proceed with the advantage of American interests.

    The stunned head of state comes out and reads off the script Trump has written about how much they appreciate the friendship of President trump and how they look forward to their future cooperation. Meanwhile Trump is sitting slouched in a nearby chair with a fierce and grumpy look on his face as he checks to make sure the fish is getting the words right. Some of the heads of state keep looking over with a beseeching smile, looking for approbation.

    Trump says how much he admires the fish and how he really believes they like each other and will go forward with mutual admiration and cooperation. End of Story. MAGA

      There is no preordained allegiance among nations that’s what they don’t get

      The difference between ]nations[ and ]baseball[ is that all swear allegiance to the ]same[ before the game.

      Ladders and webs meant swap the LABELS/VARIABLES for whatever u like.

      The IC can use this to route cells cults whatever… I assume they have. In these long past time words is just pointing out that there would be allegiances sworn between sub parties before undertaking an endeavor. I hope they used this.

      up and down ladders and webs.

      In baseball it’s the flag. For family it’s blood. It goes on and on depending on ones belief system it might end in a god (finitum)

      For example: in journolist at some point they must have agreed upon what they set out to do. A web vertex. SCCI is a vertex.

      It’s just a network break down into language.
      The language deciphers the web

    AAG Whitaker spent the last week in Memphis, Nashville, and Cincinnati, setting up new task forces designed to find and prosecute those trafficking in Fentanyl. The last big Fentanyl bust were Chinese traffickers, and AAG Whitaker made a point of the DOJ’s focus being on the source of the Fentanyl – China.

    Tonight, President-For-Life Xi agrees to cooperate in the Fentanyl designation as a controlled substance.

    Merkel looks very stressed and fidgety. What a nightmare for her. Her world is falling apart.

    Trump has swept past all of the globalist chaff and countermeasures with these parties: the Swamp, China, Wall Street, CoC, Canada, Mexico, Germany, the EU, and the list goes on. It’s quite remarkable. Japan’s a tough nut, but we’ll get there.

    The beauty of his strategy is that he lets his negotiating partner find their own way to facilitate MAGA. They become his partner, even if they don’t want to be.
    Normally I’d expect there’d be a downside for us on the backside of these trade policy revisions, but with Trump I believe mitigatory strategies are part of the overall strategy. Reagan’s tax bill in 1986 set us up for unmitigated disaster. Similarly with Bush 41’s Gulf War, and Clinton’s Glass-Steagall repeal. Trump knows how to game the process through all the way to the end, surface the downside and then plan for it.

    Looking at the body language of Merkel in that pic shows me a woman nervous, insecure but angry underneath at the same time.
    Everything she thought was successful following the global agenda is falling apart. Like Macron next door the German deplorable also organizing a yellow vest protest against Merkel realizing they were railroaded.
    Merkel is panicking and has now offered every refugee willing to deport themselves back to their homeland one year free rent, free repatriation and additional cash assistance.

    Why she was en-route to Argentina the Deutsche Bank was raided, executives dismissed stretching the raid into a second day. Money laundering on a massive scale is the charge.

    The issue about Ukraine and Russia must be unnerving her since it was a FF by deep state. The plan of the ships entering Russia’s part of the waters was to blow up Putin’s bridge via nuclear device and the Ukrainian diver on the tugboat.
    Russian intelligence picked up the threat involving the black op by the UK, NATO and Ukrainian government which we all know is run by the CIA/Nuland ergo military intervention by Putin and his military taking all the sailors on the three ships and ships as well. They remain in Russian territory.
    It looks that president Trump is fully informed and cancelling his meeting with Putin in Argentina was a calculated move to keep the deep state in the dark of his knowledge.

    I was fascinated by the newly elected Brazilian government who gave the finger to the Marxist climate change pushers refusing to sign or participate in that hoax. They also cancelled the upcoming climate conference in their country Brazil. Yes the rep used the word Marxist climate hoax which made me smile.
    Another ally of our president!
