11:32 am
wants to you'd be very surprised a very smart very good negotiator wants to do the right thing you know he brought up the fact that in the past they took dialogue far they never went they never were like we are there's never been anything like what's taken place now but they went down the line billions of dollars was get were given and you know the following day the nuclear program continued but this is a much different time and this is a much different president in all fairness is very important to me this was one of the perhaps one of the reasons that i want i campaigned on this issue as you know very well john ok. whoever those people are i can't i cannot see you with all the lights but you don't look like either of the two yeah go ahead sure. thank you mr president first of all thank you very much appreciate it. how to tell the. peace treaty and we can go and i said well at
11:33 am
a certain time i will i said that will be a day that i look very much forward to at the appropriate time and i also will be inviting chairman kim at the appropriate time to the white house i would i think it's really going to be something that will be very important and he has accepted i said at the appropriate time we want to go a little bit further down the road but what we signed today was a lot of things included and then you have things that weren't included that we got after the deal was signed i've done that before in my life we didn't put it in the agreement because we didn't have time and i think most of you have been headed out the agreement or soon will but i know you have not ok well if you could have those agreements passed that we just finished them just a little while ago but if you could have the agreements passed out well we'll see what we're talking about yes or go ahead. i was thinking to aggressively. you
11:34 am
what part did japan play and it duction this or come up as also the fate of the christians and yes question when will you be doing an interview with japanese t.v. fifty thousand american troops in japan it's true again the fifty thousand great troops it's yeah it did abduction absolute lives prime minister avi's one of his certainly other than the whole the new king subject is certainly his i would say his main point and i brought it up absolutely and they're going to be working on that it will be we didn't put it down in the document but it will be worked on. christians yes we are brought it up very strongly you know franklin graham spent spent and spends a tremendous amount of time in north korea he's got a very close to his heart it did come up and things will be happening thank you great question yes john.
11:35 am
thank you mr thank you john we're turning to the question of human rights you spoke very powerfully on the issue during your state of the union address right sure that you had to factor in the first lady's box with the crutches who escaped and you at that point said north korea as more readily oppressed its people than any other regime on earth do you still believe that is the case having having sat down with kim jong il and it doesn't change that you and i believe it's a rough situation over there there's no question about it and we did discuss it today pretty strongly i mean knowing what the main purpose of what we were doing is the new king but discussed it in a pretty good length will be doing something on it it's it's rough rough in a lot of places by the way not just there but it's rough and we will continue that and i think ultimately we'll agree to something but it was discussed at length
11:36 am
outside of outside of the nuclear situation one of the primary topics they think that changed to bring on this glorious talk i think it will change i think it probably has to but i think it will yeah thank you thank you very much. steve that you steve right there sir thank you what time table do you envision for the nuclear is ation that in the meantime you are you thinking about easy and sanctions well you know scientifically i've been watching in reading a lot about the senate does take a long time to you know pull off complete d. nuclear ization it takes a long time scientifically you have to wait certain periods of time and a lot of things happen but despite that once you start the process it means it's pretty much over good use of that's the good news and that's going to a very very soon i believe it's going to start very soon we will do it as fast as it can mechanically and physically be done steve the sanction of the sanctions will
11:37 am
come off when we are sure that the nukes are no longer a factor. sanctions played a big role but they'll come off at that point i hope it's going to be soon but they'll come off they as you know and as i've said the sanctions right now remain but at a certain point i actually look forward to taking them off and they'll come off when we we know way down the road where it's not going to happen nothing's going to happen ok yes go ahead please thank you mr thank you waste this is for thank you very much congratulations to everybody by the way congratulations to everybody because you signed a document with john it's essentially a piece of paper yesterday we were briefing from the secretary of state like ohio and said the following many presidents previously aside all four pieces of paper only to find that the north koreans either didn't promise for thought they had or
11:38 am
actually all those promises what makes this time get well you have a different administration you have a different president you have a different secretary of state you have people that are you know it's very important to them and we get it done the other groups maybe it wasn't a priority i don't think they could have done it if it was a prairie frankly i don't think they honestly could have done it even of a was a priority and it would have been easier back then would have been for me it would have been much easier if this were ten years ago were five years ago and i'm not just blaming president obama i mean this goes back for twenty five years that should have happened i was given a very tough hand i was given this i was given the iran deal. and plenty of other problems but we are doing really well on the iran deal i have to be honest we i did it because nuclear is always number one to me nuclear is number one but on the iran deal i think iran is
11:39 am
a different country now than it was three or four months ago i don't think they're looking so much to the mediterranean i don't think they're looking so much yet syria like they were with total confidence i don't think they're still confident right now but i hope with that big set i hope that at the appropriate time. after these sanctions kick in and they are brutal what we've put on iran i hope that they're going to come back and negotiate a real deal because i'd love to be able to do that but right now it's too soon for that yes please you also talk establishing better relations. streaming about. how long before that good question hopefully soon but we'll have to get things moving first very little bit early for that we have to get things moving yes i. when you get your stopping working so your heart stopping the military exercise. here we've
11:40 am
done exercises for a long period of time working with south korea and we call them wargames i call them war games and they're tremendously expensive the amount of money that we spend on that is incredible and south korea contributes but not one hundred percent which is certainly a subject that we have to talk to them about also and that has to do with the military expense and also the trade so we're doing that we actually have a new deal with south korea terms of the trade deal but we have to talk to them and we have to talk to many countries about treating us fairly but the war games are very expensive we pay for a big majority of them we fly in bombers from guam i said it when i first said where are the bombers come from guam nearby i said oh great view by whiz near by six and a half hours six and a half hours it's a long time for these big massive planes to be flying to south korea to practice
11:41 am
and then drop bombs all over the place and then go back to guam i know a lot about airplanes it's very expensive and i didn't like it and what i what i did say is and i think it's very provocative i have to tell you jennifer it's a very provocative. situation one when i see that and you have a country right next door. so under the circumstances that we're negotiating a very comprehensive complete deal i think it's inappropriate to be having war games so number one we save money a lot and number two. it really is something that i think they very much appreciated. what we've got and you know i've heard that i've read some of the people that i don't know maybe they really mean it i don't i don't always want to go against the press because i just don't especially not today this is too important but i notice that some of the people are saying that the president has agreed to meet he has given up so much to give up nothing i'm here i haven't slept
11:42 am
in twenty five hours but i thought it was appropriate to do because we've been negotiating for literally round the clock with them and with us and with john and with mike and a whole team of very talented people but we haven't given up anything other than you're right i agreed to meet and i think the meeting was every bit as good for the united states as it was for north korea but i just wrote down some of the things we got and they you know they sure they got a meeting but only a person that dislikes donald trump would say that i've agreed to make a big commitment sure i've agreed to take a period of time and come here and meet and that's good but i think it's great for us tonight as a country and i think it's good for them but what did they do to justify
11:43 am
this meeting secured commitment for complete de nuclearization that's the big thing they secured the release of three american hostages they already gave them to us two months ago these people now living happily back in their homes with their families and it was pretty rough for them. to put it mildly secure the commitment to recover the remains including the zero of fallen heroes and they giving a commitment to starting it immediately to recover the remains and i just went through how many people asked me about it i was amazed actually so many people would ask me is it possible is it possible at that time we had no relationship to chairman kim or to anybody else in north korea you know it's a very closed society so we're getting the remains back secured the halt of all missile and nuclear tests for how long has it been seven months you
11:44 am
haven't had a missile go up for seven months you haven't had a nuclear test you haven't had a nuclear explosion i remember a nuclear event took place eight point eight on the richter scale and they announced i heard it on the radio they announced that a massive you know of earthquake took place somewhere in asia. and then they said it was a north korea and then they found out it was a nuclear test i said i never heard of a rector scale in the high eights and if you look there has been no missile launches they've blown up their missile area that's going to take place that has not been written into the contract we're going to give you the exact details on that but they secured a halt of all missiles and of all nuclear tests they secured the closure of their single primary nuclear test flight test site all three of them there in an area
11:45 am
that's common around each other they secure the closure they secure the commitment to destroy the missile engine testing site that was not in your agreement i got that after we signed the agreement as it did me a favor. we've got this missile engine testing site we know where it is because of the heat we it's incredible the equipment we have to be honest with you i said can you close it up you can close it up we maintain the ability to continue to apply sanctions so we're applying sanctions now i had three hundred sanctions that i was getting ready to put on last week and i said you know i can't really put on sanctions when i'm meeting with i thought it would be very disrespectful three hundred very big ones powerful ones and i said it would be disrespectful so jennifer when you look at all of those things that we got and when we got our hostages back i didn't pay one point eight billion in cash like the hostages that
11:46 am
came back from iran which was a disgraceful situation what took place so we've gotten a lot so when i hear somebody in the media say that president trump has agreed to meet like it's not a big deal to meet i think we should meet on a lot of different topics not just this one and i really believe a lot of great things can happen yes go ahead. there. was a lot this wasn't too long ago those things that define success. are nor are you giving up your well that's what they're doing when you talk about sure that's what they're doing and when i don't think think yeah. or are. you know i didn't honestly you see right to secure those details. because there's no time i'm here one day we're together for many hours intensively but the process
11:47 am
is now going to take place and i would be surprised mike if they haven't even started already they have started they blew up this sites they blew up the testing say so but i will say he knew prior to coming you know this wasn't like a surprise it wasn't like we've never discussed it we discussed it mike discussed it varies at very strongly with his counterpart in north korea they knew that this was let's say they didn't agree to that i couldn't sign any ago there was no agreement it could have been signed so they understood that and it wasn't a big point today because really this had been taken care of more than any other thing because it was all about this this has been taken care of before we got here so when we brought that up today you see the language it's very strong it's in the document yes ma'am thank you thank you and military
11:48 am
consequences or north korea if they don't. well i don't want to talk yeah i know that's a tough thing to talk about because i don't want to be threatening i don't want to be threatening they understood that and you've seen what was perhaps going to happen and you know seoul has twenty eight million people we think we have big cities you look at new york where it has eight million people we think it's a big city so it has twenty eight million people think of it and it's right next to the border it's right next to the d.m.z. . it's right there i mean if this would have happened i think you know i've heard all one hundred thousand people i think you could a loss twenty million people thirty million people this is really an honor for me to be doing this because i think you know potentially you could have lost you know thirty forty fifty million people the city of seoul one of the biggest cities in the world is right next to the the border. well at that
11:49 am
time we needed perhaps fire and fear because we could not have allowed. that kind of capability from the standpoint of the united states and certainly japan was a going to allow to either japan is right next door. yeah. today yeah we had it made up by some i hope you liked it i thought it was good i thought it was interesting enough to show. one in english and one in korea and we had it made up. i showed it to him today actually during the meeting toward the end of the meeting and i think he loved it they were given we didn't have a big screen like you have the luxury of having we didn't need it because we had it on a cassette and an i pad and they played it and. about eight of their representatives were watching it and i thought they were fascinated
11:50 am
but i thought it was well done i showed it to you because that's the future i mean that could very well be the future and the other alternative is just not a very good alternative it's just not good but. i showed up because i really want him to do something now i don't think i had to show it because i really believe he wants to i think he wants to get it done yes. how staten island ferry doing ok. he wrote the best story about me with the staten island ferry and after that he's never written a good story i don't know what i don't know what happened it's a long time ago mr president it's been a busy week for you on the international stage you're leaving that summit here and think of having tarmon and on it the talented man you left the g. seven summit a few days ago in canada having to terminate that prime minister to its we and dishonest what do you say to america's allies who worry that you might be jeopardizing our long term alliances and who worry that you might be treating our
11:51 am
historic friends as enemies and our historic enemies and friends well versus first so i think it's a very fair question i had a very good meeting with as you seven and i left the meeting and i'll be honest we are being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries very first seriously now the united states because of bad management of the because of presidents that didn't care about trade or didn't understand it or whatever reason for many years with china being obviously the most successful at it but the european union the second one hundred fifty one billion way was they were represented at the meeting and we're being taken advantage of own tray canada does have. very big advantages over us in terms of trade deficits we have a big trade deficit with canada i was reading where oh it's actually a soap with not a surplus it's either seventeen but it could actually be one hundred you know they
11:52 am
put out a document i don't know if you saw it they don't want me to see it but we found it perhaps they were trying to show the power they have it's close to one hundred billion dollars a year loss with canada they don't take our farm products many of them they charge what was two hundred seventy percent but somebody told me the other day that a few months ago they raise it to two hundred ninety five percent for dairy products and it's very unfair to our farmers and it's very unfair to the people of our country the workers the farmers the companies and we are not able to trade they have tremendous barriers up they have tremendous tariffs so when i put in a countervailing tariff just to get us up a little bit so the balance isn't so much it's like this they said all that so terrible i said what's terrible we have to catch you a little bit we have to have a little balance even if it's not complete we have to have a little balance i say this with many countries. anyway we we came we finished the meeting really everybody was happy and i agreed to sign something i asked for
11:53 am
changes i demanded changes that those changes were made in fact the picture with merkel who i get along with very well where i'm sitting there like this that picture was we're waiting for the document because i wanted to see the final document as changed by the changes that i requested it was a very friendly i know it did look friendly and i was reported like sort of nasty both ways i was angry at her actually we were just talking the whole group about something unrelated to everything very friendly waiting for the document to come back so i could read it before i leave anyway i left it was very friendly when i got on to the plane i think that just and probably did know that air force one has about twenty televisions and i see the television and he's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the united states and i say push him around we just shook hands it was very friendly look countries cannot continue to take advantage of us on trade the numbers are out over the last couple
11:54 am
of years and over the last many years but over the last couple of years this country has lost eight hundred billion dollars on trade with other countries the biggest one being china eight hundred billion dollars one hundred fifty one billion with the european union they don't take our agricultural products barely they don't take a lot of what we have and yet they send mercedes in to us they send b.m.w. xin to us by the millions it's very unfair and it's very unfair to our workers and i'm going to straighten it out and it won't even be tough. thank you. go ahead. i would like to involve congress yes and no i have
11:55 am
a good relationship with justin trudeau i really did other than he had a news conference that he had because he assumed i was in an airplane and i was in watching he learned that's going to cost a lot of money for the people of canada he learnt you can't do that you can't do that we left we had a very good relationship i've had a good relationship with justin i have a good relationship with oh i have a very good relationship with merkel but when nato we're paying four point two percent she's paying one percent of the much smaller g.d.p. than we're we're paying four point two percent on a much larger we're paying for i mean anyone can say from sixty to ninety percent of nato and we're protecting countries of europe and then on top of it they kill us on trade so we just can't have it that way it's unfair to our taxpayers and to our people but no i don't have a good relationship with justin and i have a i think a very good relationship with chairman kim right now i really do i think i hope it's good because if it is we're going to solve
11:56 am
a very big problem i think we've gone a long way to solving it today should we keep going for a little while. so i don't know it's up to the legendary sarah huckabee sanders should we keep going sarah ok we'll go well i don't care hey you know it just means we get home a little later in the evening right yeah go ahead sure but i'm at the present now we you and i sit and i society type of thing or welcome to the country thank you very much enjoyed beautiful country i did i just have a high about you describe it as a process what is the next ongoing dialogue yes oh we're getting together next week to go into the details at the secretary pompei oh yeah next week with john bolton and our entire team to go over the details and to get this stuff done we want to get it done he wants to get it done. we're also working very much with south korea
11:57 am
we're working with japan we're working with china to a lesser extent but we're working with china. and. i would come back ledley your prime minister was fantastic we're with him yesterday he's done a great job it was very welcoming and really probably had it probably made a difference actually it's a great place thank you very much yes ma'am and thank you. what what about that first interaction with chairman ken morning that if that means you decide not to walk away after that you would know within the first met him i've said that about relationships i've said that about people you know in the first second now i was generous i said five seconds but you know in the first second in some cases sometimes that doesn't work out. but sometimes it does from the beginning we got along but this been a lot of groundwork this wasn't like we went and we started talking about as you know we didn't just come in and start talking about these very complex subjects
11:58 am
that have been going on for seventy years. we've been discussing this for months and you know once the rhetoric stopped once they did a great a great thing you know north korea did a great thing by going to the olympics because the olympics and president moon will tell you this the olympics was not exactly doing great people didn't feel like being bombed out of the opening ceremonies you know they weren't exactly selling tickets and as soon as as soon as the chairman chairman kim said let's participate in the olympics it sold like wildfire and was a great success at olympics it was a great success he did a great thing. but since that time pretty much since that time because as you know we're delegation came from south korea who had just met with north korea they came to the white house they told me lots of things including the fact that they'd be willing to do you know we have one of their great people here today. that they were
11:59 am
willing to be new and once that started we have been so we have been really talking about that from the end of the olympics when the whole delegation came to say various things including the nokia if i may affect question in the document that you signed earlier today north korea agreed to commit you are in station to borrow a phrase that you used to criticize your predecessors and political opponents how do you ensure that north korea is not all talk no action well i think can you ensure anything can i ensure that you're going to be able to sit down properly when you sit down i mean you can't ensure anything all i can say is they want to make a deal that's what i do my whole life has been deals i've done great at it and that's what i do and i know when somebody wants to deal and i know when somebody does and a lot of politicians don't that's not their thing but it is my thing i mean again this really could have been done i think easier
12:00 pm
a long time ago but i know for i just feel very strongly my instinct my ability or talent they want to make a deal and make a deal is a great thing for the world it's also a great thing for china because i can't imagine that china has you know is happy with somebody having nuclear weapons so close so you know and that's china was very helpful so i think he wants to make a deal can anybody be certain but we're going to be certain soon because the negotiations continue ok thank you very much. go ahead. mention. right and you write yes here. we say. no ability whatsoever to hear or see this press conference the one hundred pounds of north koreans kept network lights you betrayed them by digital marketing the regime in pyongyang now i think i help them because i think cheap things will
12:01 pm
change i think i've helped them there's nothing i can say all i can do is do what i can do we have to stop the nuclear ization we have to do other things and that's a very important thing so at a certain point hopefully you'll be able to ask me a much more positive question or make a statement but. not much i can do right now at a certain point i really believe he's going to do things about it i think they i think they are one of the great winners today that large group of people that you talk about i think ultimately they're going to be one of the great winners as a group yes are going to you know would you ever consider removing the sanctions without significant improvement in the human rights situation no one significant improvement i want to know that it won't be happening and again once you start that process there will be a point at which even though you won't be finished for a while because it can happen scientifically or mechanically but you're not going to be able to go back you know once we reach that point i'll start to give that
12:02 pm
very serious thought yes go ahead go ahead go ahead you first did you also the cost the cost so did you write the.
