3:00 pm
in that horrific war american and british service members bravely shed their blood alongside one another in defense of home and in defense of freedom and together we achieved a really special magnificent victory and it was total victory prime minister man i have just come from a very productive nato summit that was truly a productive summit where my top priority was getting other nato members to pay their full and fair share and the prime minister was right there with me i want to thank you prime minister for the united kingdom's contribution to our common defense the u.k. is one of the handful of nations five out of twenty nine not good but it's going to get better really fast in addition to the united states meeting the two percent g.d.p. minimum defense spending commitments during the summit i made clear all nato allies
3:01 pm
must honor their obligations and i am pleased to report that we have received substantial commitments from members to increase their defense spending and to do so in a much more timely manner in our meetings today the prime minister and i discussed a range of shared priorities including stopping nuclear proliferation i thanked prime minister may for her partnership in our pursuit of a nuclear free north korea has been a tremendous help the prime minister and i also discussed iran we both agree that iran must never possess a nuclear weapon and that i must halt and we was do it and i'm going to do it and she's going to do it and we're all going to do it together. we have to stop terrorism to scorch we have to stop terrorism and we have to get certain countries and they've come a long way i believe the funding of terrorism has to stop and it has to stop now
3:02 pm
and i encourage the prime minister to sustain pressure on the regime and she needed absolutely no encouragement because she in fact also encourages me and we're doing that or were doing that together very closely coordinated the united kingdom and the united states are also strengthening cooperation between our armed forces who served together in battlefields all around the world today the prime minister and i viewed several u.s. u.k. special forces demonstration. we saw some demonstrations today frankly that were incredible the talent of these young brave strong people. we saw it at the royal military academy at sandhurst seamless cooperation between our militaries is really just vital to addressing the many shared security threats we have threats far different than we've ever had before they've always been out
3:03 pm
there but these are different and they're severe and we will handle them well we also recognize the vital importance of border security and immigration control in order to prevent foreign acts of terrorism within our shores we must prevent terrorists and their supporters from gaining admission in the first place border security is a national security problem and in the united states we are working very hard to get the democrats to give us a couple of votes so we can pass meaningful and powerful border security i also want to thank prime minister may for pursuing fair and reciprocal trade with the united states once the brics that process is concluded and perhaps the u.k. has left the e.u. i don't know what they're going to do but whatever you do is ok with me that's your decision and whatever you're going to do is ok with us just make sure we can trade
3:04 pm
together that's all that matters the united states looks forward to finalizing a great bilateral trade agreement with the united kingdom this is an incredible opportunity for our two countries and we will seize it fully. we support the decision of the british people to realize full self-government and we will see how that goes very complicated negotiation and not an easy negotiation that's for sure as strong and independent united kingdom like a strong and independent united states is truly a blessing on the world prime minister may. i want to thank you again for the honor of visiting the united kingdom a special place my mother was born here so it means something maybe just a little bit extra maybe even a lot extra and we had a wonderful visit last night i think i got to know the prime minister better than at any time we spent a lot of time together over a year and a half but last night we really i was very embarrassed for the rest of the table we just talked about lots of different problems and solutions to those problems and it
3:05 pm
was a great evening as we stand together this afternoon at checkers we continue a long tradition of friendship collaboration and affection between ourselves and also between our people the enduring relationship between our nations has never been stronger than it is now so madam prime minister thank you very much it's been an honor thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you. and we will. we're going to take full questions each off with laura. and thanks very much prime minister and mr president laura can spark b.b.c. news mr president you seem rather to have changed your chin from what you said earlier this week when you said that on the current brecht's it plan that would probably kill the possibility of a trade deal with the u.k. our countries are meant to have a special relationship yet you publicly criticized the prime minister's policy and
3:06 pm
her personally for not listening to you this week is that really the behavior of a friend and prime minister isn't the problem for you that some of the things mr trump has said about your breakfast plan are rights it will limit the possibilities of doing trade deals easily in the future can you also tell us how it felt for him to criticize you in the way he did in that interview maybe i'll go first because i didn't criticize the prime minister have a lot of respect for the prime minister and unfortunately there was a story that was done which was you know generally fine but it didn't put in what i said about the prime minister and i said tremendous things and fortunately we tend to record stories now so we have it for your enjoyment of you like it but we record when we deal with reporters it's called fake news and we solve a lot of problems with the good old recording instrument but what happens is that the prime minister is a really just said she's going to make a decision as to what she's going to do the only thing i ask of interest is that we
3:07 pm
make sure we can trade that we don't have any restrictions because we want to trade with the u.k. and the u.k. wants to trade with us we're by far their biggest trading partner and we have you noticed a tremendous opportunity to double triple quadruple that so if they going a slightly different route and i know they do want independence it's going to be independents it's just your definition but if they're going to go a certain route i just said i hope you're going to be able to trade with the united states i read reports. where that won't be possible but i believe after speaking with the prime minister's people and representatives and trade experts it will absolutely be possible so based on that i. based and based on just trade in general and our other relationship which would be fine but the trade is a little bit tricky we want to be able to trade and they want to be able to trade and i think we'll be able to do that and i think she's doing
3:08 pm
a terrific job by the way. thank you mr president and just to confirm what the president has said laura there will be no limit to the possibility of us doing trade deals around the rest of the world once we leave the european union on the basis of the agreement that was made here at checkers in that i've put forward to the european union and just to be clear that is an agreement that delivers on the brics it votes that we had in two thousand and sixteen here in the u.k. that delivers what i believe is at the forefront of people's minds when they were voting to leave the european union so at the end of these negotiations we will ensure that free movement will come to an end the jurisdiction of the european court of justice here in the u.k. will come to an end the sending of vast sums of money every year to the e.u. will come to an end we will come out of the common agricultural policy we will come out of the common fisheries policy and we will ensure by not being in the customs union that we are able to have an independent trade policy and do those trade deals around the world and as you've heard from the president the united states is keen
3:09 pm
for us we're keen to work with them and we will do a trade deal with them and with others around the rest of the world it's president . jonathan swann. jonathan swan from axis mr president two questions if i may on the first one now your british trip is coming to a close i could you tell us the three or four things she hoped to achieve in your meeting with vladimir putin and the second question what's the benefit to america of having tens of thousands of american troops stationed in europe thank you so i'll be meeting with president putin on monday and we go into the meeting with a tremendous meeting that we had with nato most of you have reported it correctly it was certainly it was testy at the beginning but at the end everybody came together and they agreed to do what they should do and actually what they've committed to do which you fully and here to you didn't have
3:10 pm
a problem but some people did and we left that meeting i think probably more unified and wealthier as a group than ever before so we go in strong. we'll be talking to president putin about a number of things ukraine will be talking about syria will be talking about other parts of the middle east i will be talking about nuclear proliferation because we are. massively you know you know what we've been doing we've been modernizing and fixing and buying and it's just a devastating technology. and they likewise are doing a lot and it's a very very. bad policy we have no choice but we are massively big and they are very big and i'll be talking about nuclear proliferation
3:11 pm
that would be a great thing if we could do now it's not only us it's not only russia and the united states it's other countries also but we're the two leaders we would be the leader they would be second i guess china would be third i think we'll all be talking about that i think the me jonathan. i think that would be a tremendous. tremendous achievement if we could do something on nuclear proliferation and we'll be talking about other things i know you'll esko will we be talking about meddling and i will absolutely bring that up i don't think you'll have any g i did it i did it you got me there won't be a perry mason here i don't think but you never know what happens right but i will absolutely firmly ask the question. and hopefully we'll have a very good relationship with russia i you know i think having and the prime minister would agree if we have a good relationship with russia and with china and with other countries that's a good thing not a bad thing so hopefully that will happen. ok. the
3:12 pm
benefits of. the troops where they where well look there is a benefit there's a psychological benefit and as a military benefit there's also a benefit not to do it i mean i was prepared to do things that would have been somewhat harsh yesterday a lot of people were surprised that nato all came together at the end but it wasn't a threat i mean it was just an unfair situation the united states was paying you know anywhere from seventy to ninety and i choose ninety depending on the way you want to calculate we were paying ninety percent for the of the cost of nato and nato is really there for europe much more so than us that helps europe where the no matter what our military people your military people say helps europe more than it helps us that being said it is a great unifier you know we have twenty nine countries and there was a lot of love in that room so i think and we have a lot more than you know jonathan when you say ten thousand troops we have a lot more than ten thousand troops how much are tens of either just
3:13 pm
a ten thousand because in germany we have fifty two thousand troops and we have we have a lot of troops in europe that being said we're helping europe they're helping us we're all together and i'm fine with it. thank you and and by the way very importantly they're now paying their way in a much more rapid fashion yes thank you francis. from the set of the times promised a one with a you agree with the president the author states that immigration has damaged the cultural fabric of europe and president perhaps you could elaborate on that what you mean by that. in your fans. i think it's been very bad for europe i think europe is a place i know very well and i think that what has happened is very tough it's a very tough situation i mean you see the same terror attacks that i do we see him a lot and we just left some incredible young men men and women at sandhurst and
3:14 pm
they were showing the cells and they were showing us things that frankly twenty years ago nobody even thought about probably a lot more recently than that nobody even thought about i just think it's changing the culture i think it's a very negative thing for europe i think it's very negative i think having germany and i have a great relationship with angela merkel great relationship of germany but i think that's. very much church germany i think it's very much hurt other parts of europe and i know it's politically not necessarily correct to say that but i'll say it and i'll say it loud and i think they better watch themselves because you are changing culture your changing a lot of things you're changing security it's a look at what's happening i mean you take a look at look at what's happening to different countries that never had difficulty never had problems it's a very sad situation it's very unfortunate but i do not think it's good for europe
3:15 pm
and i don't think it's good for a country where as you know far superior to anything that's happened before but we have very bad immigration laws and we're i mean we're doing incredibly well considering the fact that we have virtually don't have immigration laws we have we have laws that are so bad i don't even call them laws i call them it's just like you just walk across the border you walk across the border you would put one foot on the land and now you're tied up in a lawsuit for five years it's the craziest thing anyone's ever seen so i would just make that recommendation to europe i've made it very loud and clear i made it yesterday twenty nine countries total and that's the way i feel. the u.k. has a proud history of welcoming people who are fleeing persecution to our country we have a proud history of welcoming people who want to come to our country to contribute to our economy and contribute to our society and over the is overall immigration
3:16 pm
has been good for the u.k. it's people with different.
