we picked a place for the meeting or smum hit as you would like to it. who knows what is going to happen. but it's going to be an very important event and nobody thought it was going to happen for years or more. and i really it's going to be a great thing for north korea, south korea and japan. thank president xi on something that is very specific. china has been very helpful and we are working on trade with china and they are doing ok and they are helping us. but they have really helped us on north korea. we appreciate it and we appreciate president xi. i spoke to president moon and
what was taking place to the three gentlemen and he was happy to hear it. he likewise has been incredibly helpful. the relationships we have with moon ent abe, president and president xi and we look forward to having the meeting between the nunes and north korea and that will be anouped. as to timing, we have a lot of things going on within our country. we have very much toughened up the borders. and we have to do something about it. not only the wall that we are building sections of wall right now. we are fixing a lot of wall that
built xistent and poorly and only and san diego has asked us to go forward with their section of the wall in california and letting them lobby for us with governor brown, we decided to do it. and we will have a lot of people happy in san diego. we have, i think the numbers coming out from the economy and e what is going on, they are extraordinary. the stock market is almost up 35% from the election but the companies are doing doing better than that and ready to rock. the conference we had yesterday was a very important one. you look at the deal we had with iran, it was a one-sided dial
that was going to lead to nuclear proliferation all over the middle east and they were talking about it. it was going to lead to it. they were all very happy of what i did. it was a one-sided deal that we innt $1 poun billion in cash getting done and it was not good and not appropriate and see how we do with iran. probably we won't do very well them but that's ock too. they have to understand life. because i don't think they understand what is going on. emen and all the places, it is bedla mmp and death. we can't allow it to happen.
e have terminated a terrible deal that should have never ever been made. and we will put among the strongest sanctions a country d going into effect very shortly. and mostly constituted and drawn already and we'll have to see what happens. but we cannot allow a deal to hurt the world. hat's not a deal to help the united states. and you saw benjamin netanyahu and salk so favor bring about what we did. some of the senators, i watched them now and said he shouldn't have done it. they don't say it with the full throat or heart because they have one problem. they were totally against.
chuck schumer was against the deal. he was fighting with obama. and there was a fight over this deal because he wanted to protect this deal. he knew it was bad for the middle east. but i know they shot voted gets it and chuck schumer said perhaps he changed his mind. but the deal got worst. we have a lot of things exiting that things happening. nd perhaps, the iran are great negotiators. and never had a chance against the gentleman. i watched him on a show of an anchor who is no longer with us. and taken down. and i looked to him after three minutes and no way kerry can
negotiate against this gentleman. so we are going to make a really good deal for the world or not make a good deal for the world. d iran will say, there is no negotiation. but they'll negotiate. or something will happen. and hopefully that won't be the case. the united states is strong. our military is in a position we haven't had in a long time. haven't ion numbers we had before. rebuilding our military to a level that has never been. and good times. and hopefully we will never have to use it. peace through strength. so we are honored by the fact
that the three gentlemen are coming home and i look forward to seeing them, maybe a lot of you, it will be 2:00 in the morning. it will be quite a scene and to me, it's very exciting. it represents something very exciting to this country. people never thought it could happen. and people never thought we would have a situation where we re having serious and positive communication with north korea. who knows. we have a chance of what is happening for everyone. so i want to thank you all for being here at see you at 2:00 in the morning. indiscernible]

[snerble] president trump a lot of good things can happen and a lot of bad things can happen. both sides want to negotiate a deal. we have a really good shot at making it successful and a lot of things can happen but you will be the first to know. we have a good chance. thank you very much. snerble]
