Greta Van Susteren Interviews President Trump…

A lengthy interview (recently released) between Greta Van Susteren and President Donald Trump at the G20 summit in Argentina.  The topics include: the USMCA trade agreement; the conflict between Russia and Ukraine; overall global trade; issues within the global climate change economy; Brexit, China, the U.S. economy and immigration.

As most CTH readers are aware MAGAnomic policy, economic nationalism, is the largest focus of President Trump.  Beyond all other issues, this is the POTUS priority. Within this interview the president walks through the geopolitical issues and interests for the U.S. economy.  Well worth watching:

    As much as they are hoping for a downturn in our Economy, all indications are showing that the Economic Train isn’t slowing down but rather is picking up speed.

    One of the biggest indicators was just released (ISM Manufacturing Index (PMI).

    From the article linked above:

    The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) manufacturing index (PMI) came in at 59.3% in November, easily beating the 57.2% consensus forecast. The forecasts range was 56.0% to 58.3% and the headline is an increase of 1.6 percentage points from the October reading of 57.7%.

    The New Orders Index came in at 62.1%, an increase of 4.7 percentage points from the October reading of 57.4%, while the Production Index registered 60.6%, a 0.7 percentage-point increase compared to the October reading of 59.9%.

    This real GDP rate currently being forcasted for the 4th Quarter will put us well over 3% real GDP rate for 2018. The last time that occurred was 2005.

        Giving them the rope to hang themselves….

        President Trump does not attack a problem head on. He takes the lumps out. He uses Sun Tzu, The Art of War

        “O divine art of subtlety and secrecy!
        Through you we learn to be invisible,
        through you inaudible,
        and hence we can hold the enemy’s fate in our hands.”

        President Trump tried the straightforward method of getting a wall and the ReBOOBlicans blocked him. So now he is going to take on the deeper problem and correct not just the lack of a wall but the forces BEHIND mass migration.

        NAFTA was one of those forces SEE: Small Farmers And The Doha Round: Lessons From Mexico’s NAFTA Experience NAFTA banckrupted 75% or more of Mexico’s small farmers BUT did not give them the ‘promised’ sity jobs. INSTEAD those jobs were shipped to China. President Trump is undoing that damage.

        Sex and Drug Trafficking is the other force:

        “Trump just dropped the bomb on pedophiles and sex traffickers with this official statement on Whitehouse.gov: https://www.sgtreport.com/2018/03/trump-drops-bomb-on-sex-traffickers/

        “President Donald J. Trump is Working to End Human Trafficking – My Administration will focus on ending the absolutely horrific practice of human trafficking. And I am prepared to bring the full force and weight of our government, whatever we can do, in order to solve this horrific problem. ~ President Donald J. Trump”

        Trump’s Executive Order for Military Tribunals
        “….What does Trump’s new Executive Order published on March 1, 2018 mean? It gives new powers to the Department of Defense by allowing civilian courts and lawyers to be used to augment military staff during military tribunals. It also alludes to the current law allowing Martial Law to be declared during times of National Emergency or during any threat to National Security. We are already declared, via Executive Orders, to be in a state of National Emergency. Are we going to have military tribunals of US civilians? Is this akin to Martial Law?

        For the first time in history, experienced civilians to take part in the US Military court-martial process—thus clearing a path for mass “Deep State” arrests whose trials and sentencing would not impact the normal flow of the US Military justice system.

          Immigration crackdown shifts to employers as audits surge

          “WASHINGTON (AP) — Immigration officials have sharply increased audits of companies to verify that their employees are authorized to work in the country, signaling the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration is reaching deeper into the workplace to create a “culture of compliance” among employers who rely on immigrant labor….”

          A Treeper in the last couple days mentioned NJ State Attorney announced they would not cooperate with ICE so ICE responded by saying they will do more raids….

          President Trump has tried withholding funds from sanctuary cities but got blocked by the courts. With luck he can withhold funds from the Catholic, Lutheran… ‘Charities’ that are ‘helping’ illegals. I expect Maxine Waters is dumb enough to sponsor a bill removing money from ‘religious charities’ …

          “We will end the sanctuary cities that have resulted in so many needless deaths. Cities that refuse to cooperate with federal authorities will not receive taxpayer dollars, and we will work with Congress to pass legislation to protect those jurisdictions that do assist federal authorities.” — President Trump

          Source: A speech on immigration in Phoenix in August 2016

          The NINTH CIRCUS STRIKES AGAIN!

          …President Donald Trump’s executive order to withhold federal funds from so-called “sanctuary cities” violates the Constitution’s separation of powers principle, said a federal appeals court as it sided with a lower court’s determination.

          Under the Constitution, spending power rests with Congress. Without congressional authorization, the Trump administration “may not redistribute or withhold properly appropriated funds” in order to carry out its own policy goals, said the opinion written by Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Chief Judge Sidney R. Thomas. The case was decided 2-1 on Aug. 1.

          “The administration has not even attempted to show that Congress authorized it to withdraw federal grant moneys from jurisdictions that do not agree with the current administration’s immigration strategies. Nor could it,” Thomas wrote. “In fact, Congress has frequently considered and thus far rejected legislation accomplishing the goals of the executive order.”….

          https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/promise/1400/cancel-all-funding-sanctuary-cities/

          If this goes to the Supreme Court it could get interesting because the sanctuary cities are acting to BREAK US IMMIGRATION LAWS and also acting to put US citizens at risk. They are acting to Deprive American Citizens Of Rights Under Color Of the Law Under those conditions is the federal government OBLIGED to FUND CRIMINAL ACTS????
          ……

          OH, and do not forget a Federal Government SHUT DOWN‼️
          How long would all those ‘sanctuary cities’ and ‘religious charities’ last WITHOUT the massive flow of Taxpayer DOLLARS? How long before a heck of alot of the SJW would stick around and not retire or quit? 😈 (And yes they do get Unemployment bennies.)

          Do not be at ALL surprised at a long government shut down.

        The problem with the Wall and changing Immigration Policies is that you will need the Democrats to come across the aisle. With them taking the House, they don’t have to bring a Bill to the floor. You will have to give a lot in return. Amnesty for the Dreamers plus some other things. Will our President’ Base go for that. If they don’t, it will never get done.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 32% of American Adults say, looking back, it was a good idea for the federal government to provide bailout funding for General Motors. Forty percent (40%) think it was a bad idea, while 28% are not sure.

      While it’s good to see that some have awakened to the farce that the bailout was, it should be 98% who see it, not just 40%. I grew up in a solid GM family and drove their vehicles for years (I even still have one old one in storage). But, even with substandard quality these last few decades what really caused them to lose me ever going back to them was the bailout. Essentially Bush and Obama gave the company to the unions and burned the investors. I have no interest in buying from a company like that. And, when I learned that Toyota has cars with more American parts than any American car company, plus they build them here, I moved my buying to them so that it would feed more American families. The added bonus was that I’ve found them to be better built than I could imagine. I drive a lot and I drove one 390,000 miles and then sold it, the next one 170,000 miles and sold it, and the current one has 155,000 miles on it and none have needed any major repairs, just maintenance like oil changes, tune ups, and tires. And while they are Japanese engineered, the fact that they are made in America and employ Americans to assemble them makes me feel good about driving them. It’s just too bad that no American-based company offers the same benefits of buying from them.

      In an alternate universe where Hiliary had won, this might have still occurred. Maybe even been worse.

      The difference would be – Hiliary’s govt. would bail them out with billions of taxpayer dollars (more “too big to fail”).

      I am suspicious that is one of the reasons that GM made business decisions that led down the road to this – because those decisions were based on thinking they could get more of taxpayer’s continual bail-out funding (much like the EU funding their socialist utopia on our backs, etc.).

      The wall is a symbol and appropriate in some locations. But if the wall has a big door and millions of visas, nothing will change. We have to cut down on legal immigration numbers. They are way too high and much more damaging to the US citizens than even the illegals.
      H1B, H2B, Opt are easy fixes via EO. Legal green card numbers must be changed by law.

        None of that matters unless the DS is gone. Realize, votes are irrelevant today. They don’t matter because the process is so corrupt. There is no such thing as “depriving Democrats of votes,” as we just saw in the mid terms. That’s my point. MAGA is over in 2020 unless the DS is crushed, everything Trump has done will vanish. As it stands right now, the DS controls the 2020 election. Trump will be a one termer if they have their way…and they will if they are not essentially destroyed by then. And as I have posted before, winning will not happen via intrigue, leverage, pressure, or chess games. Mueller means nothing. Trump can throw him in jail today if he wanted. Same with Senate confirmation, same with Dem House. Winning will happen only via brute force. ie: troops rounding up DS traitors. The DS plays for keeps, there is no leverage vast enough to beat them. You must kill them or jail them. President Trump is trying to do it by finesse & leverage so as to save the country from melting down. I get that, but don’t think it will ultimately work well enough. We need to win, win big, win now. Delay gives DS more time for countermeasures. Have to go full John Wayne on them to make victory happen. jmho

        Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!

        — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 29, 2016

        This of course set off the lefties.

        ‘Luv’ the name of this blog — ‘Liberal America since 1776’ (Shows how ill educated these idiots are.)

        “…Jeez! Where to start? Let’s try this line of logic, though it will no doubt be completely lost on Trump: Burning an American flag is protected under the First Amendment. This was decided in the 1989 case Texas v. Johnson. The Chief Justice of the United States, William Rehnquist, who was as conservative as they come, wrote in his decision that any statute or law which criminalizes the desecration of an American flag directly violates a person’s First Amendment privileges as outlined by the Bill of Rights, …

        As if that wasn’t bad enough, Trump spokesperson Jason Miller then went on CNN this morning and doubled down on Trump’s moronic ranting, telling Chris Cuomo:

        “I think most Americans would agree with me that flag burning should be illegal. It’s completely despicable.”

        I don’t think it should be illegal, Mr. Miller. And this is settled law! We had this debate when George H.W. Bush was pushing for a Constitutional amendment to make flag desecration illegal. That was back when Poppy Bush was trying desperately to prove he was a tough guy instead of a wimp.

        Perhaps most of all, this needs to be said: a flag is nothing more than a piece of cloth. I constantly see people wearing variations on the flag as shirts or caps, yet no one says anything about it. What gives the flag intrinsic value are ideals it represents. And to burn or walk on an American flag in no way threatens the precious ideals we hold so dear–freedom, liberty, the right to disagree, the right to assemble, the right to speak out….”

        How is that for very twisted logic? And yet THAT is what is being taught.

        Oh and it used to be ILLEGAL to use variations on the flag as shirts or caps when I was a kid. Or to let a flag touch the ground.

        Hey Dude THIS IS THE LOGIC:

        burn or walk on an American flag = I HATE the U.S.A.
        ∴ RENOUNCE you citizenship and LEAVE.

    Greta is one of the very few good journalists remaining. How she phrases her questions, hearing and listening the answers to her queries before asking another question are missing in today’s current so-called reporters or journalists.

    A journalist without an agenda is so pleasant to see. I forgot what it was like.

    I watched and was not disappointed. Typical Greta interview. All about substance. Smart, informed questions. And she wasn’t dressed like she was working the streets. Business attire just like the President. Where does she work? Where is her work displayed? Internet? You Tube? I need to know because more and more I am turning to the web for news and information. I watch Fox and Friends in the a.m., Greg Gutfeld on Sat night and Levin on Sunday night and that is IT for me and Fox News. I hate their “panels”. I learn nothing from them. I despise the “Fox Format”. I like Tucker but am not interested in him giving some lefty loon a soap box while Tucker makes faces and then destroys him with cogent argument. Just not my cup of tea. What Greta does is real journalism.
    Where are the Sinclairs? Why are they not challenging Fox? Now that Fox is just another MSM venue, there is a place for a Roger Ailes type network.

  22. I always admired Greta. Despite her politics (?) , she conducted herself as a journalist . Same mold as Sheryl Atkinson.. and Kathleen Parker .
    Three of the best.

    I hope someone puts this amendment to the 2019 DHS budget on PDJT’s radar so he can veto the bill if necessary.

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/12/03/dhs-opposes-gops-stealth-bill-outsource-college-graduate-jobs/

    There were 4 issues in the 2016 campaign: 1) internal displacement of American workers through illegal aliens and special visa programs, 2) external displacement of American workers through NAFTA and TPP, 3) formation of an America-first foreign policy, and 4) reversing the concentration of power in DC by eliminating Obamacare, opening up the health insurance market nationwide, and getting Washington out of Americans’ daily lives by eliminating federal regulations.

    PDJT has an excellent record on all of them. Now comes a Uniparty challenge on the first issue, trying to displace 300,000 American tech workers with foreign workers. American white-collar tech jobs cannot be bargained away for a border wall or anything else. It’s peoples’ lives on the line here.

    Watch this one very closely.

    Like it or not, President Trump must expand his base. Every sewer rat is a committed living brain donor. That leaves a small pool of independents and the biggest fish in the pond is still immigration. No dumb daughter comments, no backtracking and an iron fisted commitment to barring and exporting any and all things illegal.

  28. What a pleasure to view this interview conducted by a grown-up!

    Pres. Trump’s comments on Putin were so much more astute than prior Obama or Bush. POTUS is not assuming that he can “see into Putin’s heart via his eyes” or other nonsense. President Trump bluntly (and accurately) states that he does not know what Putin will do.

    It was a shame that Putin and POTUS could not meet as there are many issues to discuss, but given the provocations with Ukraine not meeting was the right decision. And then Putin and MBS grinned and high fives each other–such nonsense but click bait for the presstitutes.
