4:00 pm
he's going to have no problem with that yes place. thank you mr president i did actually russia question but i want to quickly clarify is hundreds k.'s also going to need to wait till the very end or is it possible the u.s. would drop their extradition effort when what miss manning from while away the top i just gave we did that was a discus we did discuss what way but we didn't discuss her situation ok thank you. all russia respectfully it seems like maybe you didn't really mean it when you said yesterday don't meddle in our elections mr president and then you go. you have to take a look at the words i did say and we had a discussion we had a great actually we had a great discussion president putin myself i thought it was really a tremendous discussion i think they'd like to do trade with the united states and they have great products they have great land they're very rich land a lot of oil
4:01 pm
a lot of minerals and the kind of things that we like and i can see trade going out with russia we could do fantastically well we do very little trade with russia which is ridiculous frankly so i could see some very positive things happen here but as per your question though i did say it and i did discuss it a little bit after that. yesterday former president jimmy carter suggested that your presidency is illegitimate and that you only got the white house with help from russia russia actually russians are shia isn't it crazy ok jimmy carter look. he's a nice man he was a terrible president he's a democrat and it's a typical talking point he's loyal to the democrats and i guess you should be. but as everybody now understands i won not because of russia not because of
4:02 pm
anybody but myself i went out i campaigned better smarter harder than hillary clinton i went to wisconsin i went to michigan the night of the vote i had 32000 people at 1 o'clock in the morning on election day. i won michigan i won wisconsin i won pennsylvania i won states that traditionally haven't been won by a republican field many years haven't been won by a republican and this had nothing to do with anybody but the fact that i worked harder and much smarter than hillary clinton that now i'll say this. jimmy carter. i was surprised that he would make a state i saw there was not the big thing but i saw the statement and it's you know a lot of democrats like to make that statement he's been trashed within his own party he's been badly trashed i felt badly for because you look over the years his party has virtually he's like the forgotten president. then i understand why they
4:03 pm
say that he was not a good president look at what happened with the rand it was a disaster water ran did they him they tied him up in knots. the reason ronald reagan probably became president so you know it's a democrat talking point your place. jim. yes mr president if i could follow up on the question about your comments with a lot of your putin about russian meddling you did seem to be joking there with the russian president taking that to be wrong and what is it with your coziness with some of these dictators and autocrats at these summits with mohamed bin solomon the the crown prince of saudi arabia when you were asked about the case of jamal khashoggi you did not respond to that question in front of the i don't know what we have to be afraid of were you afraid of offending him on that subject no no don't i don't really care about offending people. i sort of thought you know that. you
4:04 pm
passed up an opportunity and by the way congratulations i understand your book is it doing well it's doing very well mistress another i'll get you an autographed copy good send i want to see it yes or yes send me a copy. no i get along with everybody except you people actually i get along with a lot of people. i have a tremendous relationship with president xi nobody else would have the deal that we were getting tens of mit of billions of dollars from china coming in lot of things that body and despite that we're moving along toward something that could be very historic but i get along with president putin i get along with mohamed from saudi arabia look i spoke to saudi arabia when the old prices a year ago were getting very high and i wasn't so nice and i said you gotta get some more oil into the system because what's happening is no good and they did and people are driving at you know very low numbers right now you haven't seen in the
4:05 pm
old days you'd have spikes where the gasoline went to $5.00 and more and it wasn't so wasn't so good a but i also get along with people that would be perceived as being very nice you have a lot of very nice leaders of countries. i was with i wrestle with islam and i was with prime minister made today i was with so many a year take a look new head of australia look at japan prime minister abbie's a fine they're all fine as far as i'm concerned some are stronger than others some are tougher than others and a lot of us thought if i but if i may the president on the case of democracy show we have a lot of journalists in this room who object to what appears to be saudi government's complicity and perhaps orchestration of the assassination and dismembering of a journalist you know and when you were given the opportunity to call muhammad and stalin out on that you did not do it did you do it privately. so you do you agree
4:06 pm
that it is despicable for a government to kill a journalist and that yes i do i think it's horrible or anybody else by the way you know but i think it's horrible and if you look at look into saudi arabia you see what's happening 13 people or so have been prosecuted others are being prosecuted they've taken it very very seriously and they will continue to and i've let everybody know i'm not i'm very unhappy about that whole event but if you look at what's going on and right now within saudi arabia they're prosecuting additional people there's a lot of things happening at the same time i will also say and nobody said nobody so far has pointed directly a finger at the future king of saudi arabia i will say i spoke to his father jim i spoke to his father at great length. they've been a terrific ally they're creating millions of jobs in this country they're ordering
4:07 pm
equipment not only military equipment but $400000000000.00 worth of than actually even more than that over a period of time worth of different things and with that being said i'm extremely angry and unhappy about a thing like that taking place but as of this moment more than 13 people are being prosecuted and i hear the numbers going to be going up but it's a good question yes please. thank you mr president i think. it's very good to know that for the further escalation of treat tensions china and can share some details of you interaction with president xi at this time and also if i may and other quick question on those korea do you think it's possible that there would be a 3rd one on one with him and came within this year what might happen tomorrow i mean to be a we will call it a summit will call it a handshake if it does happen i don't know that it will but it could happen i know
4:08 pm
i think he'd like to do it and i wouldn't mind doing it at all and going to be i am literally visiting the d.m.z. and so but i will hold as per your question about president xi he's a brilliant leader is a brilliant man and you know better than i he's probably considered to be one of the great leaders in 200 years in china and we just have a very strong he's tough but he's good we have a very good relationship and i said you know we can't have it where the united states loses this kind of money for the privilege of building up china it has to be a fair deal and he understands that but as he said nobody ever came to us it's true no what the president came to this would by presidency could be a lot easier not only for that but for many other reasons be a lot easier but i don't want to be easy it's a point in time have a chance to do things that nobody else has ever done so we're making a deal with china or we're tempting and if we don't we'll go back into you know we
4:09 pm
have a tremendous ripe field of tremendous money that would be coming into our country but i have a feeling that over a period of time and again i'm not rushed and i told him i want to get the deal right it's extremely i would even say complicated but very intricate. but in the meantime i think our farmers are going to end up being the great beneficiary and what i did with the farmers because they did was a certain amount of money i went to sonny perdue who is our secretary of agriculture sits and how much money in the best year did china spend on our farms in our farms buying he said the best year about $16000000000.00 i said ok well we're taking in much more than that now every year in tariffs and i took $16000000000.00 out of those tariffs and essentially out of those tariffs and
4:10 pm
we're distributing it among farmers who have been hurt because they've been used as a pawn so that china could get a good deal but in the end the farmers are going to be the biggest beneficiary but i've made up for the fact that china was you know targeting our farmers because they know the farmers like me and i like them i love them and they settle of me i guess when you get right down to it and it was 1x6bb it's a lot of money but i took it out of the tariff money essentially and we that we are in the process of distributing the farmers could not be happier other than their own usual haddam around the table many of the farmers and the 5 weeks ago they said we don't want money we want just a level playing field i said you're right most groups want money they'll take any anyway you want to give it to them they'll take the farmers are in a class by themselves in so many ways they don't want subsidies they don't want to
4:11 pm
hand out all they want to do is have a level playing field they're unbelievable people and as i said they're unbelievable patriots john. thank you mr president for the quick follow up you made this very public invitation to kim jong un the whole be about sign if you doesn't show up no of course i thought of that because i know if he didn't everybody is going to say oh he was stood up by chairman camp now i understood that it's very hard to he follows my twitter and us it's very hard yeah following us because we got a call very quickly. a lot of people follow it but you know. they've contacted us a bit like to see if they could do this and what i thought about for you know extended just a quick hello and we get along i get along with him and i get along with other people like you know for instance and jim's question it's a fair question but i really have great relationships with everybody i think you
4:12 pm
know i said a long time ago that maybe i'll be a sleeper in foreign policy and if you look at what's happened in foreign policy now we are working on iran we'll see what happens i think they'd like to make a deal i think they'd be very smart to want to make a deal but we're going to see what happens i'm ok i have all the time in the world they're doing very poorly they were doing they were very brutal when i 1st came in 800 sites of confliction meeting where they were behind but i think on foreign policy if you look at what's happening and the other thing that's happening is we're not being taken for suckers anymore i mean we have countries where we lose on defending them because we defend a tremendous percentage of the world and they don't pay us for it and then on top of it we lose money with that same country and trade and it's all changing and they understand it's changing and they expect it to change they can't believe honestly like i'd ask prime minister abi and said how did this happen where you send as billions and billions of dollars worth of cars and other things and we send you
4:13 pm
practically nothing he said nobody ever complained same thing with china i said you know. you send a card to us which arduous sensually nothing that's 2 and a half percent but basically you don't have to their ways around that so you send a car to us and you pay nothing we send a car to you made in the united states and we have to pay 45 percent tariff how did that happen he said we just kept lifting it lifting it lifting it i mean that being honest with me we just kept lifting it and nobody called but i call i call and i want to ask you about the debate you clearly saw at least some of the democratic debate yeah i'm sure you saw the exchange between joe biden and camila harris on the issue of federal lossing a federally mandated busing biden thought that was a bad policy he tried to stop it kamel harris said it was an important part of desegregation including in her own experience where do you stand on that issue of
4:14 pm
federally mandated costs for 1st of all before you get into that i thought that. she was given too much credit. he didn't do well certainly and maybe the facts were necessarily honest i think she was given too much credit for what she did wasn't that outstanding and i think probably he was hit harder than he should have been head by and i thought he was had actually harder and as far as that i will. i will tell you in about 4 weeks because we're coming out with certain policy that's going to be very interesting and very surprising i think to a lot of people jennifer you have a question do you think karl has to be a tough opponent for you given what you saw on that debate. you never know who's going to be tough you never know when that you think is going to be tough turns out to be not much and sometimes you think one and i've seen it because look i had 70
4:15 pm
we had actually a total of 18 have a lot of people think 70 governor of virginia remember. the governor of virginia was in there long previous governor but of the 18 you know many of them were. all their lives they wanted to be politicians i never thought about being a politician until about 2 days before it so i threw rocks a. little before that but not too much before and they. you know the you looked at some of them the very talented you look at their resumes it's like great and sometimes the ones that i thought would be the toughest were not the toughest of all that i could write a book i should write a book but some of the people that i did in the republican because we had sort of a similar thing with 18 instead of i guess they had 2425 but some of the ones that i thought would be absolutely absolutely without question the toughest turnout i don't think they were tough at all others that a lot of people said weren't tough they were tougher i think she was given far too
4:16 pm
much credit for what she did that was so out of the can what she said and i think was read out of a box and i thought that he. did respond great i wouldn't say it was one i this was not winston churchill we're dealing with ok but but it wasn't it wasn't i don't think nearly as bad as it they portended it to be jennifer to thank you mr president you could i clarify your negotiations and what you agreed to with china on water away did you agree that while we consult the u.s. or that u.s. companies can sell to us companies can sell their equipment to our way of talking about equipment where there is no great national emergency problem with it but the u.s. companies can sell their equipment so we have a lot of the great companies in silicon valley and based in different parts of the country that make extremely complex equipment we're letting them sell to our way
4:17 pm
and then on turkey cerner turkey face sanctions if it goes ahead with the us 400 purchases ok so the turkey is an interesting case because it is another one jim that i get along with very well and it's a tough cookie ok. right president hurdle one he's tough but i get along with him and maybe that's a bad thing but i think it's a really good thing because frankly. he wanted to wipe out he has a big problem with the kurds as everyone knows and he had a 65000 man army at the border and he was going to wipe out the kurds who helped us with us as we took out the caliphate we have 100 percent of the caliphate and i called him and i asked him not to do they are against natural enemies of his or turkey's and he has and that are they had they were they were lined up to go out and wipe out the people that we just defeated the isis caliphate with and i said you can't do that can't do it and he didn't do it so i have
4:18 pm
a relationship but let me test so he does during the obama administration he wants to buy our patriot missile they wouldn't sell it to him he wants to buy even though he's a member of nato and. theory could be an ally of the respected the president he and he's got a big army is you know of their fighters turkey's big fighters and we're working on it live province together because he doesn't want to see 3000000 people killed and neither do i in syria but when i mention that there was another thing i mentioned folks to president putin i said please take it easy with it live as you know they've been circling that i think if i didn't put out a statement 6 months ago that would have been catastrophic but there have 30000 terrorists and it live province if 3000000 people and you know getting terrorists is ok but you don't want to kill 3000000 people or a 1000000 people to get the terrorists so do it so we get along great but what
4:19 pm
happened with turkey and i will tell you when it's fair when it's not fair he wanted to buy the patriot missile president obama's group said no he kept wanting to but they kept saying no no no. i can buy it now i needed it for defense in it so he then went to russia and he bought the s 400 made a deal to buy it because he couldn't get it they wouldn't allow him to buy it they would like this administration meaning this administration previous to mine would not let him buy it so he goes out he goes to russia me makes a deal for the s 400 let's assume it's not nearly as good but he made a deal he paid a money a lot of money put up a lot of money and he put it as soon as he bought it people went back to him from our country and they said listen we don't want you to use that system because it's not the nato system etc etc you know all the reasons we don't want you to use that system do us a favor we'll sell you the picture he said it's too late i already bought it there
4:20 pm
was nothing he could do he already bought it in the meantime he bought over $100.00 f. $35.00 the greatest fighter jet in the world it's stealth you can't see it it's real hard to beat something when you can't see it but he bought over 100 people 116 but he bought over 100 a lot and he has options for more and now he wants to livery he's paid a tremendous amount of money upfront to lockheed our company our jobs everything and now they're saying. he's using the s 400 system which is incompatible with our system and if you use the s 400 system russia and other people can gain access into the genius of the f. 35 but honestly i'm all for a country but he treated very unfairly he was told you can't buy it you can't buy it you know it's the old secret when you can't have something all of a sudden he heads up going getting something else and then they were they said 1st
4:21 pm
they said we'll sell it to you could have it in 4 years then they said we'll get you immediately but he said i can't do it i bought i'd spend a fortune on buying another system similar system from russia the problems he already bought the planes and the planes aren't compatible from our standpoint not from the standpoint of compatibility but from our standpoint national security was so it's a mess it's a mess and honestly it's not really earl once for so now we have breaking news donald trump loves turkey and then to lead this turkey that let's outrank is on the side of turkey instead of the united now i'm not you don't i love our country but i have to tell you president of the one. who has done he gave me our pastor back pastor brunson nobody else could get him back remember they couldn't get him back president obama is in jail for 35 years he's going to be in jail forever pastor bronson it was an innocent man i called him and
4:22 pm
after a very short period of time pastor bronson was standing in the oval office with me and he was back so you know he's been from my standpoint and he's a tough guy ok when you talk about that he's tough but i get along with him. i think he was unfairly treated we were told you can have it. and then after a board another system we were said we said we'll sell it we'll give it to you right away but he couldn't use it then but by that time he had already bought the plan so it's a complicated deal we're working on it we'll see what we have there one last thing on china yes kill it so there was a negotiation on wall way welcoming students holding off on tariffs so it sounds like china is a great buy more act but it's a lopsided agreement or what more do you know we don't really agree on china is actually a good question. i did agree to allow our companies jobs i like our companies selling things to other people. so i really lead that to happen very complex
4:23 pm
things not easy this is not the things that are easy to make very few companies are able to do it but a tremendous amount of money or companies are very upset you know these companies are great companies you know all of them. but they weren't exactly happy with it but were allowing that because that was a national security we're allowing them to sell a but we agreed to leave that till the end while way is a complicated situation we agreed to leave that we're leaving or way toward the end we're going to see we'll see where we go with the trade agreement yes please. thank you i have a question about order but i just wanted to follow up quickly on the question about bussing do you see it as a viable way of integrating schools does that relate to the policy that has been sampling or they've done for a long period of time you know there are there are that many ways you're going to get people to schools so this is something that's been done in some cases it's been done with a hammer onset of
4:24 pm
a velvet glove and you know that's part of it but this has been certainly a thing that's been used over the i think of if vice president biden had answered the question somewhat differently it would have been a lot it would have been a different result because they really did hit him hard on that one so but it is certainly a a primary method of getting people to schools and is it does it relate to the policy that you're going to unveil that you just floated it relates to everything we're doing and you'll be hearing about it in over the next couple of months or the next couple months ok and i want to ask you about the border it seems like there's officially a week to go into the ice raids begin under that deadline that you impose young given that you have a july 4th recess is it realistic to think that you're going to get a deal to actually reform the asylum long now because we could do it in 15 we could do it year i say to people used to say 45 minutes i say 15 but we could do it quickly we could do it in a day we could do it in an hour we could reform asylum very quickly we could get
4:25 pm
rid of the loopholes very quickly these are horrible loopholes and the reason that mexico's so good because they do have very very tough immigration they don't have the kind of things and the kind of stupidity that we had we were somebody touches one foot on our santa we now have to bring them into a court we then have to register them we then have to catch and release them and they go and they live in our country then there's supposed to come back in 3 years for a court case and about 2 percent to come back or as you know very you know it just as well as anybody i really. maybe better than most but the fact is they come back but nobody comes back 2 percent come back it's a horrible system now what we're doing is they come in illegally and we're bringing them out legally but at the request of some you know very good democrats they asked me if i could hold it and i did for a couple of weeks and we have a week left but other than the fact that we did get in
4:26 pm
a very bipartisan way we got it and i appreciate speaker pelosi because she really worked with us it was humanitarian money and we they didn't have any money and were running don't forget that nobody's ever had this problem before we're running hospitals we're running so many different things for for the kids and the kids are brought up because under the laws the kids are used legally years to get other people to come in if you have a child. it's much easier to come into our country it's easy anyway but if you have a child it's much easier so we have these kids who have been absolutely abused horribly abused and we could stop that with a minor change in the law it's a terrible thing that they're not doing it so here's what's happening so i said earlier let's see if you could give that to us now in the meantime we did we just got it approved last night so we have the 4 to have 1000000000 house in humanitarian aid and that's good so we have that but we can have that number go way down if we step people from coming up for instance if we had walls up and if we had
4:27 pm
it hard the father and the beautiful daughter who drowned and you know the real grabs a very tough you know that has moments where it can be very calm and then all of a sudden it becomes totally violent then people get swept away but if they thought it was hard to get in they would be coming out there would be coming up and so many lives would be set so essentially if they would change the laws and i said it would take us an hour but let's give you 2 weeks at the end of the 2nd week we'll be removing people legally removing another layer still planning for that deadline that deadline is still in our list for unless we do something pretty miraculous but the democrats it seems to me they want to have open borders and for the life of me i cannot figure that it's one thing because i want people to come into our country we need to because we have all these companies coming and you know we have foxconn in wisconsin we have so many companies coming in order companies just today i was
4:28 pm
with president abi tell me another auto company is going to build a big plant there the people so i'm all for that the only problem is that they have to come in through a process they have to come in illegally it's also very unfair you have millions of people online for years trying to get into a country they take tests they study they they know well a lot about our country they read they do it they have to go to a very complicated process and these people have worked hard. they've been on line for 789 years and then somebody walks in and they're you know welcome to the united states it's really honestly it's very unfair but yeah we will be removing large numbers of people people have to understand yes the laws are you know week the starting in a week after you know it's sometime after july full of the deal that was just passed does nothing to make well that's different that's not a turnout that's that's a different that's humanitarian we needed that just to take care because we're running now hospitals have been the border patrol these are incredible people
4:29 pm
they're doing what they you know nobody ever thought they were going to be doing this and people are coming up the reason people are coming up is because we're doing so well as a country in past years we were doing well past years bex ago is doing but you know they took 32 percent of our car business that we do a bit of the way we're doing in the past now with the hot country in the world and people are coming up because they want to piece of that action and the other reason children are coming up is because we had a separation policy ok under president obama with separation president obama built those cells they were in 2014 they were built they all said oh look at horrible that it turned out that it was built by president obama and i'm not blaming anybody i'm not blaming him i just say this they had a separation policy i ended it but when i ended up put out a statement i think it's going to bring more children up because you're ending it you're saying now the child can stay with the parent so i said ending it is nice in
4:30 pm
one way but in terms of what we're doing it makes it even tougher but the really bad thing is the cartels and i really think that mexico because you know they did 6000 now they're doing 16000 on our border i think that mexico is looking to swamp the cartels and those kind of numbers will do it would be a great thing what mexico is doing for us is right by the way without the tariffs they would have done it actually been after we've been after them for many years to do it but they have really so far it's only a week the numbers are way down and so far a lot of good things have happened yes or plus. yes please in the 2nd round thank you just for us to question if you like me to leave now or here's the thing i can state we can do this we want a long time my only problem is us i don't need stories he stayed up there too long if i stay up there quickly they say why did he not give us more time if i stay up
4:31 pm
for 2 hours ill say he stayed up too long i mean if you promise you're not going to say i said because everybody's got a hand up and if you want i'll go on should i go on or should i not go on what do you think a little more and you're not going to say he went on too long as we have time you know i have a flight that actually leaves pretty much what i wanted to. ok let's go over xmas present to questions about the watch a week ago you called off a strike because you were concerned it would kill iranians disproportionately absolute proportionately did the military leaders provide you with any alternative that you have some derelict oil rig that could have been hit no no no i hadn't any of the oh yeah i have but i have 50 alternatives i have many alternatives and i mean you know what you don't know what the sites where you said oil rig you don't know what the sites were but but i had many older know the military lives that are great when we chose and designated certain areas that we were thinking about ice
4:32 pm
and how many people are going to die i mean i'm talking about on the other side that means a lot to me to ok how many people are going to die they said probably about 150 you don't know could be much worse than that could be less too i guess but it could be much more than that because this is heavy stuff going in and we would have been 100 percent we have the greatest military in the world i deal with them all the time these people are incredible people. the lethal. and hopefully we don't have to use it much when we've spent you look at the numbers 716000000000 dollars this year we had planes that was so old so we did now we have brand new f. 35 we have brand new super hornets and f. 180 and i mean the equipment we have is incredible the army now has beautiful new things everything is we have a military that's really great hopefully we don't have to use it very much but no they came in and they said this and i asked a question and they came back
4:33 pm
a short time later and they said about 150 people i said that's really disproportionate i don't like it but 2nd question is that here at the g. 20 summit. what can you tell us has the ball been moved in any particular direction towards easing the tensions with iran in some of the meetings that you well i've had a lot of countries come up to me france has come up. if you look at. president mccrone good guy he came up to me and said you know i do a lot of business been in france does a lot of business with iran i'd love to go see them as anybody can see him i don't mind talking i think talking i'm not going to say oh don't talk to him don't talk to him i do think john kerry should not have been talking to him i think that's delaying this process a lot i think he violated the logan act actually but i think john kerry speaking to iran a lot. maybe saying things like gee you know if you wait another 15
4:34 pm
months maybe trump will lose the election and then you can deal with a person that's a lot easier than trump he'll deal with a staff that will give you everything you want and that makes it a little tougher for me to make a deal but that's ok. please go. mr president you're the week you tweeted out your displeasure with the supreme court's decision on the census and you suggested you may seek the i think it's i think it's very unfortunate are you are you in fact going to do the try to lay what we're looking at that legally because there escalus to census and you know the census was shocking to me i figured it would be you know not expensive to do a sense it's billions of dollars you know that right billions billions they go to knock on doors of every house in the country and they get everything they're not allowed to ask whether or not somebody is a citizen of the united states how horrible and ridiculous is that so we are looking at that yeah sure you know there's always hope for us in
4:35 pm
a real decision that won't the so it is who is like now right now. it depends on it depends on what happens i guess it was it was a very strange decision it was a very very sad decision not in terms of voting down in terms of just a very sad because it was so convoluted it was to get to that decision had to be very very hard with a judge that just said it's your guys who are playing politics and not hey who's really playing politics ok check it out you tell me who's playing politics you're going to place. as president i think i heard you mention earlier jeff or with the e-mail it's been a while i think i heard you mention that with vladimir putin you had said he's spoken election interference privately as well do you give do you speak in a stronger tone to tell me oh no i just dropped by the other day we talked about you know we've talked about it before you know he denies it totally by the way just
4:36 pm
a bit how many times can you get somebody to deny something but he has in the past a night it he's denied it also publicly but we talked about it we talked about a lot of other things i tell you we talked about something that i think is very important and that's putting a cap on what he's buying and we're buying from a nuclear standpoint and other arms control we talked a lot about arms control and i think he'd like to see arms control and so it would i think it makes a lot of sense what was the context in which it had its did you really do you read what was in the model report that you sort of articulate to him at all or is a very good report i mean it was a good report ahead 18 people that hated me i had muller who was totally conflicted and obviously didn't like me we had he was totally conflicted and yet no obstruction no collusion and you know there was a good report yes splits and you know democrats want to do over or 5. they want to get it right they're working to get it right they want to do over or 5 yes
4:37 pm
a place at it's all were turner's present trump your ministration just a velvia economic portion of the deal of the century my question to you so why were no palestinians members of the white house peace committee well they are a very important part of it but they don't really have to be we're just getting started. we have. and as you know we have a very good david friedman great gentleman one of the most successful lawyers in new york who loves israel david friedman jason greenblatt who worked for me and my company great great lawyer great talent jarrett questionnaire and with me being president if you don't get that deal done it will never happen we'll have to see what happens but i think the palestinians basically i'm not sure i know they want to make a deal but they want to be a little bit cute and that's ok i fully understand where they're coming from as you
4:38 pm
know i've ended the money to. that was we were paying them $550000000.00 a year and i handed them money because a year ago i heard they were saying nasty things they said wait a minute we're trying to make a deal we're trying to help them and they're saying these nasty things we're not going to pay elf if a deal is made we would go back on a humanitarian basis not so different from the border because you see the problems and what's going on it's terrible but i think we have a very good chance of making a deal and lot of people think that's probably the toughest deal of all and it may very well be the toughest deal of a lot of people think it can be made i mean over the years a lot of people would say that's a deal that can't be made no matter what but you know hey i like we're going to try but i really believe that i want to other negotiators from past years for many many years have been trying to make this deal and i said to. do you ever take the money away because they were always very hostile and they said no we wouldn't do that
4:39 pm
that's inappropriate or why is it inappropriate i mean they're saying bad things why is it inappropriate and what i've done is said look as long as you're not negotiating and if you don't want to help make peace we're not going to pay you so let's see what happens i think they want to make a deal and i've had a very good relationship with some of their leaders and obviously have had a good relationship with israel now. the transaction was thrown up in the air a little bit because of what happened with bibi netanyahu is election they thought he won and then all of a sudden they couldn't put together the coalition and now they're back to campaigning again so that was something that came up that who would've expected that maybe something will happen faster but you know that's going to be going on for about 3 months there's a good chance we could there's a chance i don't even say good chance on that one because people say it's the hardest deal i've heard when i was young i'd say you know what do you think of this
4:40 pm
that's tougher than israel and the palestinians make it in the us is that is like the metaphor that they used to use that is the excuse for a deal that was very tough to make so it's probably about the toughest deal to make i actually think that there's a good chance your simplistic white shirt. no the gentleman behind you ok. will get you thank you god that's the man i'm looking at the metrics of us popular financial times can i just ask 1st one clarification sure you say you're taking all way off the commerce tomato now we're going to be talking about war what we are going to be supplying equipment from our companies our companies make billions and billions of dollars worth of equipment but we are not discussing wall way with president xi yet i want to see before we start getting into that i want to see where we end up we have to look we don't have a national security problem which to me is is paramount very important are you taking hallway off the commerce department entity list we're talking about that we
4:41 pm
have a meeting on that tomorrow or tuesday and my question is you talk a lot about the economic on the trade practices of china you're very critical you don't talk so much about the national security concerns about china well what do you worry about tacos for that and i think that goes without saying i mean look what i've done liquid who's done what i've done i took z.t. e off if you remember i was the one i did that was a personal deal and then president xi called me and he asked me for a personal favor which i consider to be very important he's a leader of a major country and it was very important to him having to do with where the employees are located and his relationship to that area and it was 85000 employees and they were almost out of business and he agreed to pay $1200000000.00 penalty and some other things including a board change and including some management changes it's after the z.t. that which is a you know much smaller than one way but it's very big and they paid us a $1000000000.00 to $1200000000.00 i mean part of the problem is then the democrats go out and say if i get $200.00 trillion dollars that say this was terrible what
4:42 pm
a terrible deal because that's the way politics is it's sort of said but you know we got 1200000000 and we closed it we opened it and and we had certain changes made as you know. they made changes to the board he changed the board they made management changes and they paid a lot of money and they also have to buy american products buying american product is very important to me it's big it's big that can i just have to deploy a good blue blue shirt. stephanie miller with every day you know we're going to continue onward yes there's anybody say no. thank you sir stephanie man with the german television one question we just left angola i know he's another friend of my people don't have one time we have a great relationship i hope you know that we had often spent a lot of time together to you praise this g.
4:43 pm
20 summit extremely successful yet it was 19 against one summit if we look at climate change why is it that you still think ignoring the dangers of climate change is in the interest of i don't ignore it so we have the best numbers that we've ever had recently and i'm not looking to put our companies out of business i'm not looking to create a standard that is so high that we're going to lose 2025 percent of our production i'm not willing to do that we have the cleanest water we've ever had we have the cleanest air you saw the reports come out recently we have the cleanest air we've ever had but i'm not willing to sacrifice the the tremendous power of what we've built up over a long period of time and what i've enhanced and revived i'm not i'm just not willing to do that and they understand where i stand and you know i'm not necessarily sure i agree i can tell you i'm not sure that i agree with certain
4:44 pm
countries what they're doing because i think they're losing a lot of the power of what they can do with factories and with and i'm not talking about political power although that comes with it i'm talking about the powering of a plant it doesn't always work with a windmill. when the wind goes off the plate isn't working it doesn't always work with solar because solar is just not strong enough and a lot of them want to go to wind which has caused a lot of problems and you know the problem with wind is the united states was subsidizing these when towers all over the place because when does it work for the most part doesn't work without subsidy and i don't want to be subsidizing things that don't have to be subsidize the united states is paying tremendous amounts of money on subsidies for wind i don't like it i don't like it i don't want to do that . we'll take a few more go ahead go ahead. is there 2 questions on iran please 11 question iraq ok well iraq's
4:45 pm
a better one place it will to start iran says that it will be on the verge of violating the threshold for you writing their richmond at the g c b j c v.o.a. soon as potentially next week what will you be your response when that happens you'll see that a fall it's all i can do that's all i can do now but that's that's all i can do i can only say yossi we cannot let iran have a nuclear weapon to skin to place. thank you mr president silly i mean those are really let in america you met yesterday with president putin and they read out this is the you touch the subject of venezuela can you expand a little bit of what it was said during the meeting about venezuela and also well 1st of all we're following venezuela very closely it's a catastrophe it's what socialism can do i use it all the time i mean it's what socialism can do it was one of the richest countries 20 years ago it's got among
4:46 pm
the largest oil reserves in the world and there are the food they don't have water it's really actually incredible i discuss it with i've discussed it with almost every leader this week and we discuss venezuela because we don't ever want that to happen to us or their countries ok go ahead and you mentioned that change of regime takes time in that in business or like sure text but here think that it is a possibility people are leaving venezuela it's like going to be a ghost town it's a very bad thing that's happening in venezuela nobody's seen anything quite like it actually specially from the standpoint that they were so wealthy they've gotten i know so many people from venezuela living in miami they're incredible people they're incredible incredible that a lot of them live in doral miami it's they call it little venezuela i know them so well these are people that know hard workers warm which is it's just incredible and
4:47 pm
to see what's happening to venezuela is heartbreaking really hypericum president do you think that it is a time for change the strategy in these the bill believe that one way though is the person to leave the country you have back you my sure you have a lot of strategies i have 5 different strategies i could change any moment but in the meantime we're helping them from the standpoint of aid we're getting as much as aid is we can i think they're making a big mistake because they're not making the aid very easy as you know you know that make it easy to get to people. but people are starving to death and they're their water they have no water they have no water they have oil but they don't have any water. no we have a lot of things. in store if we have to do that we don't want to do anything but you know we don't want to get involved to the extent that you may be thinking but we have a lot of alternatives we have 5 different alternatives for venezuela. and we'll see what happens it's still very poorly and we're dural is doing very poorly obviously
4:48 pm
it's not just at work it just don't work it. yes ma'am. so from where you politico any to come are political i just wanted to follow up on the questions that were asked jim asked about question question question about how . the crown prince that you met with earlier today i didn't hear you answer the question did you raise the killing of. him and why was there yes i asked him what was happening and he was telling me that i think he said 13 but could be more and i think he said more in the works that there are a large numbers of people being prosecuted he's very angry about it he's very unhappy about it and i did mention it to him very strongly and he answered very strongly but they're prosecuting large numbers of people that was a bad event and certain i just certain i just follow up eventually you mentioned that the intelligence community that no one had pointed the finger at him but
4:49 pm
actually the cia did the intelligence communities i cannot comment on intelligence community that i just i'm not. probably guess i'm allowed to do what i want to do in terms of that we can declassify unlike hillary clinton she decided to just give it out we can declassify the truth is that i just don't want to talk about. intelligence but i will say this a lot of people are being prosecuted and they take a very serious lever there and they've done a great job in saudi arabia from the standpoint of women and from a lot of different things happening in saudi arabia one of the other things very important saudi arabia that not only. are they an ally not only have they spent tremendous amounts of money coming into our country and they have been a good ally and they have actually brought tremendous amounts of military equipment that we use and they were able to years but they're also very much now changed their ways as to financing terror which i can't say for
4:50 pm
a lot of other countries if you look at iran if you look at other countries in that area they're financing terror now it's harder for an. because iran doesn't have the money they used to have and they were given $150000000000.00 they were given $1800000000.00 in cash but saudi arabia's come a long way it terms of reform so the arabia really has come a long way. place in the gold. you write. thank you very much mr president i'm tight i don't see waste time as he made a business news organization in china just the lobo follow up all huawei you say are going to discuss hallways and to do listings are is a policy which is that it's a possibility that he's going to be removed from the least is going to remove from the entity least i don't want to talk about it now i mean we're looking at that very carefully while we're is very much in play in terms of our country and in
4:51 pm
terms of intelligence and the intelligence community we know a lot about war but i don't want to mention that right now i just think it's inappropriate i will say that i would not make it other than what i told you already we're not making it a big subject we're going to save that for later and another question on the big picture of us china relations oh what do you think u.s. and china should be there are we a strategic partner is are we competitors are we enemies whatever way you know i think we're going to be thank you strategic partners i think we can help each other i think in the end we can have the right deal is structured we can be great for each other if china would open up you're opening up a tremendous you know the largest market in the world and right now china is not open to the united states but we're open to china that should have never really been allowed to happen ok yes please there. and you mr president up on russia you plan to go to moscow next spring as president putin invited you as you
4:52 pm
agree with him that western style liberalism as it's been defined over the post-war period is now obsolete and no water relevant to today's world well i haven't heard him say that but he did invite me to russia for the. defeat of nazi s.s. a break the defeat of nazi you know russia last he said 25000000 people i have actually heard 50000000 people but he said yesterday that russia fighting the nazis there lost 25000000 people you would know better than anybody peter. but it was a tremendous you know they suffered greatly and they're having a 75th. day you could really say celebration of the defeat of the nazis and he invited me and i said i would give a very serious consideration there was a russia went through a lot they lost. i guess far more than anybody fighting the nazis in terms of people and he did invite me and i said we would get back but we will give that very
4:53 pm
serious consideration he cannot thank you many of the financial times right before arriving here was that western style liberalism is obsolete i know you probably haven't read what i get him a feel that way but he sees what's going on and i guess if you look at what's happening in los angeles where it's so sad to look at what's happening in san francisco and a couple of other cities which are a run by an extraordinary group of liberal people i don't know what they're thinking but he does see things that are happening in the united states that would would probably pretty clued him from saying how wonderful it is at the same time he congratulated me as every other every other leader of every country did for what we've done economically because we probably have the strongest economy we've ever had and that's a real positive but i'm very embarrassed by what i see in some of our cities where the politicians are either afraid to do something about it or they think it's votes
4:54 pm
or i don't know what peter i don't know what they're thinking but when you look at los angeles. when you look at san francisco when you look at some of the other cities and not a lot not a lot but you don't want to spread and. at a certain point i think the federal government maybe has to get involved we can't let that continue to happen to our cities. ladies and gentlemen thank you very much i'll see some of you in south korea maybe at the d.m.z. but there's been an honor thank you very much thank you. so if you're just joining us here on c.n.n. you've been listening to u.s. president donald trump speaking at some length to reporters at a news conference at the close of the g. 20 summit there in osaka japan he spoke on a range of ongoing issues chief among them north korea and the possibility of another meeting with kim jong un when he goes to south korea after this the ongoing trade dispute with china the standoff with iran and his discussions with a number of leaders there particularly russian president vladimir putin kimberly
4:55 pm
how get. the news conference and she joins us live now kimberly let's talk 1st of all about north korea he confirmed there the possibility of another meeting of a 3rd meeting with kim jong un. and whether that might happen is an open question but it's clearly something that the president would like to have. that's right certainly this is something the president's very eager to have happen and that's why we saw that rather spontaneous invitation over social media on twitter by donald trump donald trump saying in the press conference that he knows that kim jong un the north korean leader follows his twitter feed so was the surprising that in fact we saw a very comparatively speaking quick reply from north korea saying that they were awoken to that suggestion although they've not seen any sort of formal
4:56 pm
announcement or agenda from the united states side delatour talking about this so saying and acknowledging that he believes the north korean leader is receptive to potential meeting that could take place in the demilitarized zone of course donald trump now leaving osaka he is headed to seoul where on sunday he'll be meeting with the leader there. but now potentially also i had shake when. the north korean leader briefly maybe only 2 minutes according to donald trump in his twitter and elsewhere this is certainly something he talked about during the press conference. i understand that we may be meeting with chairman king came. and there was. spoke with the people kim. is a. very receptive responded and so we'll see because tomorrow we're going to the d.m.z. i said well i'm there i'll shake his hand we get along there's been no nuclear
4:57 pm
tests there's been no long range ballistic tests. gave us back or her seizures which was great and a lot of good things are happening over there so a lot of know will be there and we'll see it's a present from there speaking about his interest in the possibility of meeting once again with the north korean leader but of course the ongoing trade dispute with china another big big issue there at the at the g. 20 summit something that is of great concern to a number of leaders and the potential that may be doing to the global economy confirming the early reports in the chinese media that they would hold off the u.s. would hold off on imposing any new tariffs at this point and restarting trade talks . yeah that's the big headline here and that meeting between u.s. president donald trump and chinese president xi. this was really what all eyes were
4:58 pm
focused on in this final day of these meetings between the the world's most powerful leaders and the news coming out of that as you mentioned that essentially things are going to move forward again of course the talks between china and the united states had stalled now according to the u.s. president they're going to continue negotiations he feels that in his interactions with the chinese president that there was a willingness to make a deal but we also heard from donald trump that sticking point at the crux of this is not just trade but in the words of donald trump national security concerns about huawei a company that the united states is heavily identified as being responsible in their eyes for backdoor espionage intellectual property theft being a vehicle for that so this is still the sticking point so donald trump says that there is going to be a movement now in terms of moving forward on discussions there were to pick up where they left off but at the same time when it comes to walk away that sounds
4:59 pm
like one of the issues that will be to addressed last because it is one that is so difficult for both sides from the chinese standpoint certainly they are concerned because they have been blocked from the u.s. market it sounds like though on the united states side there has been some relief for some of the silicon valley suppliers and producers who make intercut parts that perhaps are the components of technologies that while ways using it sounds like they will no longer be banned from selling their products which will certainly be good news in the united states not necessarily the kind of news though that many in asia would want to hear but still this u.s. president putting a positive spin on things moving forward saying that they do believe that there is an opportunity to resolve this trade dispute that has been escalating for sometime between the world's 2. largest economies. very lengthy a question and answer session the president had with reporters he was off several times about the killing of the saudi journalist. and what he
5:00 pm
who he believed was behind that what did what he had to say there. yeah many attempts by reporters to press donald trump he had a great opportunity when he met with the saudi crown prince early here in a sock on saturday morning to have to do what the cia has done what the u.s. congress has done and the united nations as of last week has done that is point the finger at the saudi crown prince for ordering the killing of jim but as we heard from the president not only did he dodged that question saying that nobody has pointed a finger at the saudi crown prince but he also went on to say that he can't talk about intelligence and he literally avoided the question well at the same time giving space for saudi arabia to act as if they are prosecuting this in a meaningful way.
