UNGA Bilat #10 – President Trump Meets With President Zelenskyy of Ukraine – Video and Transcript…

A much anticipated bilateral meeting between President Donald Trump and Ukraine President Zelenskyy. [Video and Transcript Below]

.

[Transcript] – PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, thank you very much, everybody. We’re with the President of Ukraine, and he’s made me more famous, and I’ve made him more famous. (Laughter.) I will say he’s got a great reputation. He’s very, very strongly looking into all sorts of corruption and some of the problems they’ve had over the years. I think it’s one of the primary reasons he got elected. His reputation is absolutely sterling. And it’s an honor to be with you.

And we spoke a couple of times, as you probably remember. And they’d like to hear every single word, and we give them every single word, and then they’ll say, “Well, about today?” I think the press would like to stay in the meeting, but we have lots of witnesses, if you’d like to have it.

But the country of — our country is doing phenomenally well. We are — we have the best economy we’ve ever had. We have the best employment numbers that we’ve ever had. We have now almost 160 million people working, which is more than we’ve ever had. So we’re doing very well in every respect. And I have a feeling that your country is going to do fantastically well. And whatever we can do. You just take care of yourself. Thank you.

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: Thank you very much. Thank you very much, Mr. President.

Thank you very much. It’s a great pleasure to me to be here, and it’s better to be on TV than by phone, I think.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Yeah. (Laughter.)

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: And, Mr. President, thank you very much. And I’m not the first time to stay in New York —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Right.

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: — but I know that you’ve never been in Ukraine.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: That’s right.

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: And your predecessor also — how do you say it in English? — didn’t find time; I mean that. (Laughter.)

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Right.

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: So, can you give me a word that you will come to our great country?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, I’m going to try. (Laughter.) And I know a lot of people — I will say this: I know a lot of people from Ukraine. They’re great people. And I owned something called the Miss Universe pageants years ago, and I sold it to IMG. And when I ran for President, I thought maybe it wouldn’t be the greatest thing to own the Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants. But it’s a great thing. And we had a winner from Ukraine, and we’ve really had — we got to know the country very well in a lot of different ways. But it’s a country, I think, with tremendous potential.

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: Yes, I know it, because I’m from this country.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Right. (Laughter.)

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: And I want to thank you for the invitation to Washington.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Right.

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: You invited me. But I think — I’m sorry, but I think you forgot to tell me the date. (Laughter.) But I think in the near future.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: They’ll tell you the date.

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: (Laughs.) Yes, they know before us. And I want to thank you — to thank you, especially, Mr. President, to USA, to your government. Like I said, I know many people, many faces, like the Second Family, after you — my Ukrainian family, we know each other.

Thank you for your support, especially now when — you know, when we have two — really, two wars in Ukraine. The first one is with corruption, you know. But we’ll fight — no, we’ll be winner in this fight, I’m sure. And the priority — my priority is to stop the war on Donbass and to get back our territories: Crimea, Donbass, Luhansk.

Thank you for your support in this case. Thank you very much.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, thank you very much, Mr. President. If you remember, you lost Crimea during a different administration, not during the Trump administration.

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: Yeah. So you have chance to help us.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: That’s right. I do. But that was during the Obama administration that you lost Crimea, and I didn’t think it was something that you should have. But that was done a long time ago, and I think it was handled poorly. But it’s just one of those things.

One of the elements that we discussed is the United States helps Ukraine, but I think that other countries should help Ukraine much more than they’re doing — Germany, France, the European Union nations. They really should help you a lot more. And I think maybe, together, we’ll work on that. They have to feel a little bit guilty about it because they don’t do what they should be doing.

You’re very important to the European Union. You’re very important — strategically, very important. And I think they should spend a lot more in helping Ukraine. And they know that also, and they actually tell me that, but they don’t seem to produce. So I’m sure you’ll talk to them, and I’ll certainly be talking to them.

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: Thank you very much, Mr. President. And, you know, now we need — I want to tell you that we now (inaudible) the new country. And, I’m sorry, but we don’t need help; we need support. Real support. And we thank — thank everybody, thank all of the European countries; they each help us. But we also want to have more — more. But I understand, so only together, America and EU — only together we can stop the war. And, you know, we are ready. We just want to tell that we are — remember that we are the biggest country in Europe, but we want to be the richest one. It’s true; it’s in my heart.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, you know, you have great people in Ukraine, and you have very talented people —

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: Very smart.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: — in terms of manufacturing, in terms of some of the things they do. And we’ll be doing — we’re doing trading already, but we should be doing a lot more trading with Ukraine. But you have very talented people. They make great things. You’re at the top of the line, really. So that’s very important.

And the other thing is I’ve heard you actually have — over the last fairly short period of time, you’ve really made some progress with Russia. I hear a lot of progress has been made. And just keep it going. It’d be nice to end that whole disaster.

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: First of all, I want to tell you, before — before the relations with Russia — I will prolong, just one minute — I mean, you have to know — I want world to know that now we have the new team, the new parliament, the new government.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Right.

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: So now we (inaudible) about 74 laws, new laws, which help for our new reforms: land reform, big privatization. They did the law about concessions. Did — we (inaudible) general for security, and we launched the Service Secretary.

Is it right Service Secretary?

AIDE: Yes. Anti-corruption court, as well.

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: An anti-corruption court. As we came, we did — we launched the anti-corruption court. It began to work on the 5th of September. It was — you know, it was — after five days, we had the new government.

So, we are ready. We want to show that we — we just come. And if somebody, if you — if you want to help us, so just let’s do businesses cases. We have many investment cases. We’re ready.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: And stop corruption in Ukraine, because that will really make you great. That will make you great personally, and it’ll also be so tremendous for your nation, in terms of what you want to do and where you want to take it.

Thank you very much. It’s a great honor.

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: Thank you very much, Mr. President.

Q President Zelensky, have you felt any pressure from President Trump to investigate Joe Biden and Hunter Biden?

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: I think you read everything. So I think you read text. I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be involved to democratic, open elections — elections of USA.

No, you heard that we had, I think, good phone call. It was normal. We spoke about many things. And I — so I think, and you read it, that nobody pushed — pushed me.

Yes.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: In other words, no pressure.

Q President Trump, would — President Trump, would you like Mr. Zelensky to —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Because you know what? There was no pressure. And you know there was — and, by the way, you know there was no pressure. All you have to do it see it, what went on on the call. But you know that. But you can ask a question, and I appreciate the answer.

Go ahead.

Q Mr. President, would you like President Zelensky to do more on Joe Biden and investigate (inaudible)?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: No. I want him to do whatever he can. This was not his fault; he wasn’t there. He’s just been here recently. But whatever he can do in terms of corruption, because the corruption is massive.

Now, when Biden’s son walks away with millions of dollars from Ukraine, and he knows nothing, and they’re paying him millions of dollars, that’s corruption.

When Biden’s son walks out of China with $1.5 billion in a fund — and the biggest funds in the world can’t get money out of China — and he’s there for one quick meeting, and he flies in on Air Force Two, I think that’s a horrible thing. I think it’s a horrible thing.

But I’m going far beyond that. I know the President, and I’ve read a lot about Ukraine. I’ve read a lot about a lot of countries. He wants to stop corruption.

He was elected — I think, number one — on the basis of stopping corruption, which unfortunately has plagued Ukraine. And if he could do that, he’s doing, really, the whole world a big favor. I know — and I think he’s going to be successful.

Q Mr. President, on Rudy Giuliani, why do you think it’s appropriate for your personal attorney to get involved in government business?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, you’d have to ask Rudy. I will tell you —

Q You mentioned it to the President here.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I will tell you this, that Rudy is looking to also find out where the phony witch hunt started, how it started. You had a Russian witch hunt that turned out to be two and half years of phony nonsense.

And Rudy Giuliani is a great lawyer. He was a great mayor. He’s highly respected. I’ve watched the passion that he’s had on television over the last few days. I think it’s incredible the way he’s done.

What he’s at is he wants to find out where did this Russian witch hunt that you people really helped perpetrate — where did it start. How come it started? It was all nonsense. It was a hoax. It was a total hoax. It was a media hoax and a Democrat hoax. Where did it start?

And Rudy has got every right to go and find out where that started. And other people are looking at that, too. Where did it start? The enablers — where did it all come from? It was out of thin air. And I think he’s got a very strong right to do it. He’s a good lawyer; he knows exactly what he’s doing. And it’s very important.

Q Mr. President, do you believe that the emails from Hillary Clinton — do you believe that they’re in Ukraine? Do you think this whole thing originated —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I think they could be. You mean the 30,000 that she deleted?

Q Yes.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Yeah, I think they could very well — boy, that was a nice question. I like that question. (Laughter.) Because, frankly, I think that one of the great crimes committed is Hillary Clinton deleting 33,000 emails after Congress sends her a subpoena. Think of that. You can’t even do that in a civil case; you can’t get rid of evidence like that. She deleted 33,000 emails after — not before — after receiving the subpoena from the U.S. Congress.

I mean, I have never heard — now, she’s done far worse than that. Although, I don’t know how much worse it can be. But there were many other things she did that were wrong. But that’s so obvious. She gets a subpoena from the United States Congress and she deletes them. And then she said, as I remember it, that, “Oh, well, they had to do with the wedding and yoga.” She does a lot of yoga, right? So they had 33,000 emails about the wedding of her daughter and yoga. I don’t think so.

How she got away with that one is just — but it’s one of many. And it’s corrupt government. Because we have corruption also, Mr. President. We have a lot of corruption in our government. And when you see what happened with Hillary Clinton, when you see what happened with Comey, and McCabe, and all of these people — we have a lot of things going on here too. Hopefully, it’s going to be found out very soon. But I think that a lot of progress has been made. A lot of progress has been made.

Q Will the military aid continue? Can you assure that it will continue in the future?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, we’re working with Ukraine. And we want other countries to work with Ukraine. When I saw “work,” I’m referring to money. They should put up more money. We put up a lot of money. I gave you anti-tank busters that — frankly, President Obama was sending you pillows and sheets. And I gave you anti-tank busters. And a lot of people didn’t want to do that, but I did it.

And I really hope that Russia — because I really believe that President Putin would like to do something. I really hope that you and President Putin get together and can solve your problem. That would be a tremendous achievement. And I know you’re trying to do that.

Q President Zelensky, in the phone call, you said that you would look into Joe Biden — you would ask your prosecutor to look into the matter. Have you had that conversation —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, I think — no, I haven’t. But I think that — I think this —

Q I’m asking President Zelensky.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I think that somebody, if you look at what he did, it’s so bad — where his son he goes to China, he walks away with a billion and a half dollars. He goes to Ukraine and he walks away with $50,000 a month and a lot of money in addition to that. And the whole thing with the prosecutor in Ukraine.

And he’s on tape. This isn’t like “maybe he did it, maybe he didn’t.” He’s on tape doing this. I saw this a while ago. I looked at it and I said, “That’s incredible. I’ve never seen anything like that.” Now, either he’s dumb, or he thought he was in a room full of really good friends, or maybe it’s a combination of both, in his case.

Q President Zelensky —

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: I heard your question. Thank you very much. Don’t cry.

I mean that we have independent country and independent general security. I can’t push anyone, you know? That’s it. That is the question — that is the answer. So I didn’t call somebody or the new general security. I didn’t ask him. I didn’t push him. That’s it.

Q Do you feel obligated to fulfill your promises to President Trump?

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: Just — sorry.

Q (Speaks Ukrainian.)

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: (Speaks Ukrainian.)

(As interpreted.) Obligated to do what? (Speaks Ukrainian.)

Q (Speaks Ukrainian.)

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: (Speaks Ukrainian.)

Q (Speaks Ukrainian.)

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: (Speaks Ukrainian.)

PRESIDENT TRUMP: You want to just —

PRESIDENT ZELENSKY: I’m sorry.

(As interpreted.) Concerning the investigation, actually, I want to underscore that Ukraine is an independent country. We have a new prosecutor general in Ukraine — a highly professional man with a Western education and history to investigate any case he considers and deems appropriate.

While we have many more issues to care about and to tackle, we have (inaudible), we have Maidan, we have corruption cases, as President Trump rightly mentioned about that. So we know what to do, and we know where to go and what to tackle.

Q President Trump, is it appropriate to ask the Attorney General to be involved in this matter?

THE PRESIDENT: Go ahead.

Q Did you ask House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to find a way out of impeachment yesterday?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Not at all. No. Look, she’s lost her way. She’s been taken over by the radical left. She may be a radical left herself, but she really has lost her way. I spoke to her about guns yesterday. She didn’t even know what I was talking about. She’s not interested in guns.

Q Did it even come up or no?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I’ll tell you what: Nancy Pelosi is not interested in guns and gun protection and gun safety. All she is thinking about is this. She’s been taken over by the radical left, the whole Democrat Party. And you take a look at what’s happening in the media today. The whole party is taken over by the left.

And thank you very much. My poll numbers have gone up. But I don’t want it to go up for this reason. When they look, and when you see what’s happening, people are really angry at Democrats. They’re really angry at the Democrat Party.

And things like, as an example, drug pricing — getting drugs down — things like gun safety, infrastructure, the Democrats can’t talk about that because they’ve been taken over by a radical group of people. And Nancy Pelosi, as far as I’m concerned, unfortunately she’s no longer the Speaker of the House.

Thank you very much, everybody. Thank you. Thank you very much.

    The warmth/empathy between Ze and Trump was a surprise.

    Both of them going from reality tv stars to President of a democracy over the wishes of corrupt & entrenched elites they have to use to get what they were elected to do accomplish makes the peas in the same old in a lot of ways.

    Ze fishing publicly to get a date certain for a Trump state visit to Ukraine showed a lot of moxie.

    I like the cut of the Ukrainian President’s sails.

      Pelosi outed herself as more or less powerless, evidently concluding she has to defer to the ultra-leftist contingent. On losing control of the steering wheel she’s functionally not any longer much of a SoH. Henceforth I’d expect the House to devolve into greater degrees of chaos, here on out even less of a chance of getting anything done.

      Not good for the Democrats, but worse, not good for the country. All impeachment all the time, what an incredibly moronic way to burn to the ground any speck of goodwill the Democrats still had. The history of this era just got even more freakish than it ever was before.

          Of course, that is the real reason they’re pursuing impeachment. But very likely that’s going to go over very poorly with voters. Even in Democrat strongholds there will be voices of sanity. Anyway where it counts the number of people “red-pilled” is in all probability going to be very substantial. In the near future I expect to see ad campaigns hitting Democrats hard, the pressure is going to be relentless.

          I can’t see how their impeachment effort will benefit Democrats in any way.

No doubt he’ll keep increasing the firepower as long as necessary.

            The plan was to overwhelm the polls with the angriest democrat base ever, and Nancy knew it only had a chance of working if they didn’t actually proceed with impeachment. The strategy was to keep dangling the red meat in front of the base. Every dem soundbite has, up until now, been scripted to whip up the base, no matter how detached it may seem to the rest of us. They know they aren’t hitting high enough numbers with independents on policy, and doing nothing protects the kleptocracy until, hopefully, they beat Trump next year.

            If impeachment hearings begin, they lose the advantage when the rest of the voters become enraged enough storm the precincts on election day. The dems can’t make the case, and Nancy knows it. Unfortunately for her, the new kids on the block actually believe the crap they’ve been fed for the last nineteen years, and they do. And they’ve got a hot chick with a twitter account to lead them.

              Seems to me the Democrats miscalculated. AFAICT Trump supporters are already “enraged” by the Democrats’ lies and manipulation. Furthermore we’re more than familiar with their “dirty tricks”, none of us are fooled in the slightest.

              Good ‘ol Nancy is indeed between that gigantic rock and proverbial hard place. Then again it’s a conundrum of her own manufacture. Unwilling to stand up to her unruly children in the House she inevitably had to succumb to them.

              So now what do the Democrats do? Whichever way they go is fraught with risks. Drop the impeachment circus? The leftists will vilify Nancy and crew. Go down the impeachment slippery slope? President Trump and the sane Republicans will have the Democrats for lunch. (But of course that might happen anyway…)

              Like Rudy said, the Dems fell into a trap. Not that I feel a bit sorry for them. Politically speaking, I truly wish them only the very worst.

    I have come to the conclusion that there are just not enough smart democrats to over-come Trump’s genius. He has them all by the short and hairys. He exudes incredible confidence for a man under attack from all sides 24-7. He obviously know much more than he is letting on about these Ukrainian “investigations.”

    “DOH! Did You Know There’s a Treaty Between the USA & Ukraine Regarding Cooperation For Prosecuting Crimes?
    Posted on September 25, 2019 by DCWhispers
    My goodness. It was passed when Joe Biden was a member of the U.S. Senate and then signed by then-President Bill Clinton.

    A comprehensive treaty agreement that allows cooperation between both the United States and Ukraine in the investigation and prosecution of crimes.

    It appears President Trump was following the law to the letter when it comes to unearthing the long-standing corruption that has swirled in Ukraine and allegedly involves powerful Democrats like Joe Biden and others.”

    Reported by Congressman on Laura Ingraham … the whistleblower complaint is public. It reaches the same conclusions the DEMs do, source material is the same call record we have plus two or more mass media press stories, NYT and WaPo.

    Solomon was just on Hannity. He says there is a paper trail that shows that Biden or US government officials fabricated the claim that the prosecutor that Biden got fired was corrupt. That is Biden’s story, and that was the MSM talking points back when the conflict of interest was first reported. But the guy wasn’t corrupt, team Biden made it up!

        What’s missing right now for the average American voter is an explanation of WHY POTUS wanted the dope on Biden since Biden is out of office. Most voters who don’t know anything about the coup because they get their news from the MSM don’t understand that there was a Ukraine link in Clinton’s/Obama’s/Biden’s/ the Dems’ attempt to frame POTUS. Hell, they don’t know there was a frame job taking place at all because that case hasn’t been made to them yet.

        Thus, while most Americans would see nothing illegal in the issue being raised by POTUS with the president of Ukraine, they might feel POTUS looks small and vengeful in attempting to get Joe Biden.

        Because we read this blog religiously, it makes sense to us, but not to them.

    Great chemistry between President Trump and President Zelensky.

    Idiot press: “President Zelensky, have you felt any pressure from President Trump to investigate Joe Biden and Hunter Biden?

    Zelensky: You can read text. I heard your question, don’t cry.

    I really hope Ukraine can provide the evidence we are seeking.

    This was an interesting press conference to watch.

    My brother’s widow is from eastern Ukraine, her mother is still there, she just went to visit for a month this summer. She also used to work in Moscow.

    I’ve asked her some politics, she says Russia supports Putin like 80-90%, they love him. I’ve asked her what does Russia say about our President? She says they say he’s a buffoon. So they must have bad press also. I asked her what Ukraine thinks of Putin. She says they hate him. I asked her why, she said it is because of Crimea “he just took it, without asking”. When my brother married her, she had been living and working in Moscow, identified herself as Russian, even when she came over here. But I think since the Crimea takeover, that was when she strictly identified as Ukrainian. She still has friends in Russia and has recently become an American citizen.

    I’m mentioning this because in watching the conference here, it looks to me that part of the corruption that this new Ukrainian President wants to address is to stop further Russian aggression and to get Crimea back. I think this guy is looking hopeful to the U.S. for help in this. And I can’t say that he got it. I think our President kind of said, well that happened during the last administration. I also dare say, that Pres Zelensky probably wouldn’t be favorable to Putin when he is trying to get territory back and clean out corruption. And I wouldn’t be sure the Ukrainian people would support favorability to Russia at this time, unless it means Russia being fair to Ukraine and treating them with the respect of an independent and sovereign nation. I hope they reach peace and workability, but I do believe Ukraine is looking to get its territories back from them. President Zelensky mentioned achieving energy independence, so perhaps that is one angle to gain some strength on Russia.

    Bottom line is, Ukraine views Putin as an enemy and they feel bullied by Russia. I don’t know how they are going to achieve their goals, we certainly don’t want a war with Russia over it, but I think their battle with Russia is kind of like us with China. I think our days of POTUS being buddy buddy with Pres Xi are over, Panda face notwithstanding. I wouldn’t have any expectation that Ukraine is going to be friends with Putin.

    My wife and I adopted two children from the Ukraine in 2001. Of the $45K or so at least 6-7K was converted to cash (US dollars) by the Ukrainian lawyers and I always felt that it was for the purpose of “greasing the skids” to get the adoption through the state and local agencies and more importantly the courts in Kiev and Sevastopol (a city in Crimea that two children in Detsky Dom #1 we adopted. Putin subsequently took this area over in 2014).

    Listening to Zelensky talk about corruption in the Ukraine and his desire to remove it vis a vis Trump’s having to deal with the corruption in the US is so humbling and embarrassing. Our corruption problem under the democrats and left has eclipsed anything the Ukraine has.

    The US has truly become and we are a banana republic….

    • I know what you mean J Gottfred, but hopefully we can clean things up without shooting and killing a bunch of people.

      Every time a banana republic or one of those eastern European countries (lovely as they are) try to clean things up it seem to involve putting some one up against a wall and firing at will.
