President Trump Impromptu Presser Departing White House…

Chopper pressers are the best pressers.  As President Trump departs the White House en route to Osaka Japan for the G20 summit, the president delivers answers questions from the press pool on current events.  [Video and Partial Rough Transcript]


[partial rough transcript] President Trump – “I spoke with Nancy Pelosi and we had some conversations having to do with the bill for humanitarian aide at the border for the children. We’re moving along very well with the bipartisan bill in the senate, spoke to a lot of people and we’re doing very well, we’re very far along. The House is getting it together with the Senate to get something done. It’s humanitarian aide it’s very important, and I think a lot of people are starting to realize I was right when I said there was a the crisis at the border, it wasn’t a manufactured crisis.”

“I’m heading to Japan, Osaka, and were going to be meeting with a lot of people from different countries many of whom have been taking advantage of the United States, but not so much anymore, in fact not at all anymore.”

[In response to inaud. Q]: “The Mueller things never stops, there was no collusion … it never ends it goes on and on … the criminal activity was on the other side …. With the insurance policy by Strzok and his lover Page … At what point does it end? It’s a disgrace. No obstruction! No collusion! Now the democrats want a do over. They had a do over in the House, that didn’t work, we had a do over in the Senate, that didn’t work.”

Q: Who will you be meeting with at G20?

A: “I’m meeting with Russia, I’m meeting with China, I’m meeting with many countries … We’re meeting with China, just so you know China has been paying us billion sand billions of dollars, before I got here they never paid us 10 cents.

Q on Iran

A: Iran can do whatever they want, it’s fine, I have plenty of time. Iran is in economic distress, they’re in an economic disaster right now. Whatever they want is fine with me, I have all the time in the world. They could solve it quickly or they could solve it 10 years right now .. In the meantime they have very strong sanctions and they deserve those sanctions, they have to do what’s right for their people, but I don’t think they care for their people. They’re selfish and they’re stupid.

Q: Will you be meeting with Kim Jong Un?

A: I’ll be meeting with, uh, a lot of other people, not quite him, but I may be speaking to him in a different form. I’ll be going to South Korea after G20 and I’ll be there for about a day, we have a lot of meetings planned with a lot of different countries.

    Strong work from POTUS.

    Media is in a frenzy now as they try to get POTUS’ polls down ahead of the Mueller testimony. Hence the focus again on migrant children and what I call “atrocity porn” (in this case, the photo of the deceased father and child).

    Karl Rove, of all people, made a good point on Hannity (think it was) last night. Since the Mueller report came out, POTUS’ polls have stabilized and people have moved on from impeachment. For the Coup, the Dems, and the Media they have to work extremely hard to fight that equilibrium in order to get people fired up to go back on the impeachment train. So it’s time to pull out all the stops, like the mentioned photo as well as the non-credible sexual assault woman.

    Likely to be a rough July. But POTUS is standing still in the storm. Staying calm, on message, not hiding out or ducking the press.

    Very eager for Stephanie Grisham to get on the job. Think she will be a huge asset.

        Economy is great. As long as Powell does what he should, all will be extremely good.

        Reason for the stuff like “Consumer sentiment down” is because of the China Reneges On Deal in May. That tanked the markets and sentiment, which bled into June and will bleed into July. Hopefully it ends there.

        Every recent “doom and gloom” crash in the markets and subsequent economy ‘gloom’ outlook has been tied to moves by China. But if Powell does his job, we will soon decouple from China entirely, whether they make a deal or not.

        The media knows this, too. Which is whey they are playing up a Trump-Powell “feud” so that Powell will (in their minds, for the good) go against Trump and not cut rates as he should.

As far as I know there has been no autopsy or medical examination to determine if the victims were: related; drowned by accident; murdered; or that drowning was the cause of death.

          Bystanders say the man put the 13-month old on the river bank alone, and headed back to the other side for the mother, and the toddler was petrified to be left alone so followed the father back in the water. If that is true, how dumb is that. These are the low I.Q. types that the Dems want to flood into this country. People who are easily manipulated with a few handouts. What won’t people do when they hear that something is FREE? E.g. these little store front churches in NYC make their money off of politics, which includes handing out free groceries. Of course its one of the biggest scams. People drive up in BMW’s and other late model vehicles packed up with people who stand in line round the block for the handouts. Nowadays they’ve added onions, other fresh produce and even fresh fish and meat at some of these outlets.

          Then on Sunday mornings congregants sit for hours while the preacher indoctrinates and brainwashes them even more. These churches tell people how to vote, who to vote for, so of course the local politicians make sure they get the govt cheese, potatoes and macaroni etc. for them to hand out. The illegal immigrants don’t have to stand in those food lines in the baking sun or biting cold, they have cards they can exchange for food, or the local muslim run grocery will give them cash for a $15-20% discount off the value of the card.

              Frankly, I believe there is a whole lot more to this story. All the hype about the child dying in the father’s arms is horse manure. Anyone who knows anything about what happens when people drown would know quite well with all the thrashing and flayling about in the water gasping for air, it would be impossible for that man to have held onto that child as depicted in the photo.
              Did they die? Yes.
              Did they die together as depicted ? NO!
              How did they really die?
              Were they sacrificed for a sad sob story?
              Was that child really the man’s? (Pausing for a moment to consider what he did in taking the child in the river in the first place does not seem to be in keeping with what a loving parent would do.
              Did the coyote’s get rid of them for non-payment of their fee and then use the opportunity to stage the photo? For sure the photo was staged.

              Recent news stories revealed the coyote’s were taking disabled people and throwing them into the river on the Mexican side to force border patrol to rescue them. Cayotes don’t want to be bothered with handicapped and disabled people.
              Coyotes are notorious for kidnapping or executing clients who do not pay.

              If the story is true about it being a mother a father and a child, the mother was obviously complicit. She would have to know that once the man crossed the child would be alone on the other side when he came back for her. A DNA test is needed for both the dead man as well as the woman claiming to be the mother. And the woman should be charged if the real mother, with endangering the welfare of an infant. If it was an American mother putting her child in such a dangerous situation she would be sitting in a jail cell right now.
              Too many things do not add up. Its a tear jerk story for the Left to exploit for their ’cause’.
              But on close examination there are too many holes.
              PEOPLE NEED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR ACTIONS AND SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES. What the governments in South America and Mexico should be doing, is using that photograph to tell their people, THIS MAY BE YOU. STAY AT HOME AND DO NOT TAKE THAT JOURNEY.

        Rushing to unsubstantiated conclusions and flooding the msm with the negative narrative is the objective of the leftists, and it succeeded. Any facts contrary to the already published desired messaging that later emerge and contradict the tragic story line will be either be ignored or discounted.

        I am reminded of the saying (paraphrased) that damaging lies travel around the world before truth gets its shoes tied to chase them.


    • Battleship Wisconsin says:

      Firing up the Democrat’s voting base for 2020 is where the impeachment hearing ballgame is at. That’s what all these hearings are about — including Mueller’s upcoming testimony on July 17th.

      Every Democrat I know believes that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the 2016 election and that he obstructed justice in an attempt to cover it up. It is impossible for them to believe Hillary Clinton could have lost for any other reason.

      The only disagreement among these Democrats is how President Trump can best be removed from office. One alternative is by impeachment and a forced resignation, the other is by winning the 2020 election.

      Those Democrats who realize Trump can’t be removed by impeachment and a subsequent forced resignation know that keeping the Russia collusion and obstruction of justice narratives alive is one useful propaganda tool among several for turning out enough Democrats in 2020 to ensure Trump is defeated at the polls.

      Because fully mobilizing their own voter base is their true objective, the Democrats in the Congress and their allies in the media will never let loose of the Russia collusion and obstruction of justice narratives, regardless of how much Spygate material is eventually released.

      For those of us who are Republicans or independents, the whole thing has already become a theater of the absurd. It will become even more absurd as we move through 2019 into the spring, summer, and fall of 2020.

      But remember, those Democrats who push false charges of Russia collusion and obstruction of justice, and those millions of Democrats who believe every word of it, don’t see themselves as being either unethical or misinformed.

      Rather, they are simply doing what has to be done to remove Donald Trump from office by the most expeditious means now available to them, which at this point depends upon convincing the Democrat’s own voter base to come out in huge numbers in November, 2020.

          Another possibility is that those who “actually believe the Russia Collusion narrative”* do so because they keep watching and have become programed to believe the various Media Propaganda outlets preaching Trump hate 24/7 and causing a mass outbreak of TDS. At least that is my impression from reading and sometimes confronting their pathetic postings on PotUS’ Twitter feed.

          The Yanni/Laurel comparison doesn’t hold water, because that allows for the possibility that both sides are correct (unless you feel it is consistent with mass brainwashing through propaganda causing the left-tard’s distorted world view). Also, it’s not strictly a Liberal vs Conservative alignment but contains a huge element of Trump hate and TDS.

    After decades of wimps, puppets and traitors as “President”, it’s so refreshing to see this

      The root cause of the need for humanitarian aid is bad immigration law. IMO, the President is forced by political optics to team with Pelosi to support the appropriation. It may be the right thing to do morally, but it perpetuates and facilitates the chaos on the border without treating the cause.

      Moreover, expecting the Dems to participate in creating any positive, immigration-related legislative response in less than two weeks is laughable. I am confident that even the deportation of a few thousand criminal illegals will be an acceptable price to the Dems in exchange for continuing the inflow of millions of invaders.

      The Dems’ controlling the House guarantees continuation of a very porous border and protection of those who breach it.
