Donald J. Trump quotes
I'm quoting highly respected people from highly respected television networks. The New York Times had a front-page story, which they actually reduced, they took it, they took it the word wiretapping out of the title, but its first story in the front page of the paper was wiretapping. They then dropped that headline, and they used another headline without the word wiretap, but they did mean wiretap. When I said wiretapping, it was in quotes. It is just a good description. But wiretapping was in quotes. What I'm talking about is surveillance. I didn't say that. I was referring to a newspaper.
It's important to realize how we got to Obamacare in the first place, back in 2009 and 2010, House and Senate Democrats forced through a 2,700-page health care bill that no one read and no one understood. They ignored the public, they ignored the voters, and they jammed a massive failed health care takeover right through Congress.
My prayers and condolences are with his family and friends.
Under my presidency, we will accomplish complete American energy independence.
Call your local representative or senator: Let them know you're behind our plan.
I don't think anybody should listen to me because I haven't really focused on it very much. My inclination would be to get out, because you know, just go it alone.
I think that Britain will separate from the EU. I think that maybe it's time, especially in light of what's happened with the craziness that is going on with immigration, with people pouring in all over the place I think that Britain will end up separating from the EU.
Go to Brussels. Go to Paris. Go to different places. There is something going on and it's not good, where they want Shariah law, where they want this, where they want things that – you know, there has to be some assimilation. There is no assimilation. There is something bad going on. You go to Brussels – I was in Brussels a long time ago, 20 years ago, so beautiful, everything is so beautiful – it's like living in a hellhole right now.
Americans were told Obamacare would bring down prices and increase options. You were told that you could keep your plan and keep your doctor. You were given many, many false stories, the fact is you were given many lies. Go with our plan, it's going to be terrific.
Wiretapping was in quotes. What I'm talking about is surveillance. I guess, I can't be doing so badly, because I'm president, and you're not.
Nowruz means 'new day' in Persian. It is an occasion to celebrate new beginnings, a sentiment that is particularly meaningful for so many Iranians who have come to our country in recent decades to make a new start in a free land. For many years, I have greatly enjoyed wonderful friendships with Iranian-Americans, one of the most successful immigrant groups in our country's contemporary history.
Every American child has a right to grow up in a safe community, to attend great schools, to graduate with access to high-paying jobs.
I somewhat do. I very much appreciated the fact that they found what they found.
As I said throughout the campaign, I am pro-life and I am deeply committed to investing in women's health and plan to significantly increase federal funding in support of nonabortion services such as cancer screenings. Polling shows the majority of Americans oppose public funding for abortion, even those who identify as pro-choice. There is an opportunity for organizations to continue the important work they do in support of women's health, while not providing abortion services.
Somewhat vindicated. I somewhat do. I must tell you I somewhat do. I very much appreciated the fact that they found what they found.
This means more to me than anybody should understand. Every American child has a right to grow up in a safe community, to attend great schools, to graduate with access to high-paying jobs.
I very much appreciated the fact that they found what they found.
It's like the weather. When we had the drought, it's 'We're gonna have to start taking showers with the neighbors.' And now it's 'Oh my God, there's dams breaking.' Things cycle. From this moment on, it's going to be America First.
California, in many ways, is out of control.
I'm coming after you.
The courts are not helping us, I have to be honest with you, it's ridiculous. Somebody said I should not criticise judges, OK, I'll criticise judges. If something happens blame him and the court system.
Ted Cruz didn't win Iowa, he illegally stole it. That is why all of the polls were so wrong any why he got more votes than anticipated. Bad!
Big day for health care. Working hard! A loss is not acceptable, folks.
When he asked me at the end of that conversation to be secretary of state, I was stunned.
I'll get Congress. I've been getting politicians to pass whatever I wanted for my whole life. You know, it's sort of interesting, nobody has more experience dealing with politicians than I do. I've been dealing with them all my life. Whether it's big New York City zoning deals – which, by the way, are probably tougher than most of the things I'll be dealing with with foreign countries.
Honestly, a loss is not acceptable, folks.
We're doing well. I think we're going to have some great surprises. I hope that it's all going to work out. The American people gave us clear instructions. It's time to get busy, get to work and get the job done.
I somewhat do. I must tell you I somewhat do. I very much appreciated the fact that they found what they found, I somewhat do.
Unfortunately Obamacare is making their lives so much more difficult, as you all know and putting enormous barriers in the way of helping patients, who we are going to help and get this thing done, and get it figured out. We'll see what happens.
We obviously condemn today's attack in Westminster. We applaud the quick response of British police and first responders. I know the British government is investigating ... I know our homeland security and national security teams are in contact with them. We are continuing to monitor the situation. We are in touch with officials in the British government ... We're going to provide the assistance we can with the British government to try and get to the bottom of this.
These are the conservative solutions we campaign on and these are the conservative solutions the American people asked us as, a group, to deliver. I think we're going to have some great surprises. I hope that it's going to all work out.
If [there's] coordination, then this scandal becomes Watergate-like.
I ask for your support. You can blame me if you want. Mark did you hear that? You can blame me.
And I don't care if the press prints that. We had a great meeting and I think we are going to get a winner vote. They want a tremendous health care plan, that's what we have. There's gonna be adjustments to it, but i think we'll get the vote on Thursday.
Oh Mark, I'm gonna come after you.
He's a good guy. And I look forward to working with him so we can get this bill passed, in some form, so that we can pass massive tax reform, which we can't do till this happens.
We're trying to add it to this bill and if we can't, we'll have it right after.
These were people who walked into meetings and talked about, gave their thoughts on all kinds of issues, usually raising hell, and then walked out of those meetings with no responsibility other than to talk a good game. They really didn't have the responsibility to carry out any specific duties except to kind of give their thoughts on what should or shouldn't happen.
We want a very big tax cut, but cannot do that until we keep our promise to repeal and replace the disaster known as 'Obamacare'. This is our long-awaited chance to finally get rid of 'Obamacare'. We're going to do it; we're going to do it. It's time for Democrat leaders in Washington to take responsibility for the disaster that they and they alone created.
We're going to be doing some trade deals as soon as we get the health care finished – oh, I'm looking forward to these trade deals.
Our main thrust is we have to get rid of ISIS. We're going to get rid of ISIS. It will happen. It's happening right now.
We (would) love to see more funds so that we can quickly (regain) prosperity and stabilization in these areas. It's not an easy job. It's a very tough job. Your soldiers are fighting hard. I know Mosul is moving along. ... We will figure something out.
As we speak we are preparing new executive actions to save our coal industry and to save our wonderful coal miners from continuing to be put out of work. The miners are coming back.
One of the things I did ask is, Why did President Obama sign that agreement with Iran?' because nobody has been able to figure that one out. But maybe someday we'll be able to figure that one out.
There's no percentage gain going forward, so people, they're pulling back a little bit. They're just waiting to see if there is some story.
We've got to get it done for a lot of reasons.
Oh, he must have had a tough night when he went home that night.
He played more golf last year than Tiger Woods. We don't have time for this. We have to work. I'm going to be working for you. I'm not going to have time to go play golf.
I'm going to be working for you. I'm not going to have time to go play golf. What is it, over 300 rounds? Hey, look, it's good. Golf is fine. But always play with leaders of countries and people that can help us! Don't play with your friends all the time.
We will give our military the tools you need to prevent war and, if required, to fight war and only do one thing. You know what that is? Win. Win! We're gonna start winning again.
Grump Tower. It's a duplex can-dominium. I tried to be nice to you people! You got two weeks. Pack up and leave. This neighborhood does not deserve a Grump Tower anyway. I've got a reputation to think of.
Grump's the name. Ronald Grump. I'm a builder.
Don't forget your suitcases.
Trust me, you won't miss all this.
Congratulations Eric & Lara. Very proud and happy for the two of you!
James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!
You know, we have to keep our talented people in this country.
The real story that Congress, the FBI and others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information. Must find leaker now!
The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!
Frankly, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin has built up their military again and again and again. Their military is much stronger. He's doing nuclear, we're not doing anything. Our nuclear is old and tired and his nuclear is tippy-top from what I hear.
I want to thank Matt Schlapp and his very, very incredible wife and boss, Mercedes. When I watch them on television defending me, nobody has a chance.
He had a crazy policy of self deportation which was maniacal. It sounded as bad as it was, and he lost all of the Latino vote. He lost the Asian vote. He lost everybody who is inspired to come into this country.
I think it's personally not a good thing. I think it's a terrible thing. And, you know, maybe he should find a country that works better for him. Let him try; it won't happen.
Mere size is no sin against the law.
I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.
Some are good and some are rapists and some are killers.
People knew that he represented various countries, but I don't think he represented Russia, but represented various countries. That's what he does. People know that. That's Mr. Manafort, by the way, a respected man, a respected man, but I think he represented the Ukraine or Ukraine government or somebody, but everybody knew that.
Nobody ever talks about the fact that it was in quotes, but that's a very important thing. If the press would cover me accurately and honorably, I would have far less reason to 'tweet.
I said 'nuke' them, not nuke them.
He's acting badly. He's acting very, very badly.
Our two nations share much in common, including our desire for prosperity, security, and peace.
When a certain line is crossed, we have a civic duty not to be quiet.
This ruling makes us look weak.
They'll be out of here so frickin' fast!
Nevertheless, Germany owes ... vast sums of money to NATO & the United States must be paid more for the powerful, and very expensive, defense it provides to Germany!
Despite what you have heard from the FAKE NEWS, I had a GREAT meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
I am a trader, I am a fair trader, I am a trader that wants to see good for everybody worldwide, but I am not an isolationist by any stretch of the imagination. So I don't know what newspaper you are reading, but I guess that would be another example of, as you say, fake news.
And by the way, aren't our borders getting extremely strong? ... We've already experienced an unprecedented 40 percent reduction in illegal immigration on our southern border, 61 percent – 61 percent since Inauguration Day. Sixty-one percent; think about it. And now people are saying we're not going to go there anymore 'cause we can't get in, so it's going to get better and better.
Already, because of this new business climate, we are creating jobs that are starting to pour back into our country like we haven't seen in many, many decades. In the first two job reports since I took the oath of office, we've already added nearly half a million new jobs. And believe me, it's just beginning. Many (NATO) nations owe vast sums of money from past years and it is very unfair to the United States. These nations must pay what they owe.
I like him. We had our run ins, as you probably have heard, initially. But I think he is very much -- he wants to do the right thing. That I believe 100 percent.
Our military is more important to me than a balanced budget.
Many nations owe vast sums of money from past years, and it is very unfair to the United States.
He would believe very strongly in extreme military strength. He wouldn't trust anyone … he wouldn't trust our allies; he'd have a huge military arsenal, perfect it, understand it. Part of the problem is that we're defending some of the wealthiest countries in the world for nothing.
We're losing hundreds of billions of dollars a year while they laugh at our stupidity.
Secret Service did a fantastic job last night.
North Korea is behaving very badly. They have been 'playing' the United States for years. China has done little to help!
I said a long time ago that Nato had problems. No1 it was obsolete, because it was designed many, many years ago. No2 the countries weren't paying what they're supposed to be paying.
All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind. You should be talking to Fox.
We want to make sure we have the workforce development programmes we need to ensure these jobs are being filled by American workers.
I reiterated to Chancellor Merkel our strong support for NATO, as well as the need for our NATO allies to pay their fair share for the cost of defense.
We're going to win. We're going to keep our citizens safe. The danger is clear. The law is clear. The need for my executive order is clear.
I want to thank all the business leaders that have joined us to discuss a subject that's very important to me: Training our workforce for the 21st century, especially in respect to manufacturing jobs. Here in the United States, companies have created revolutionary high tech and online courses.
At least we have something in common.
Germany has done very well in its trade deals with the U.S., and I give them credit for it. Virtually any country we do business with – it's not exactly good for our workers. The U.S. has been treated unfairly and that's going to stop.
Our Budget Blueprint insists on $54 billion in reductions to non-Defense programs. These cuts are sensible and rational. In these dangerous times, this public safety and national security Budget Blueprint is a message to the world – a message of American strength, security and resolve. This Budget Blueprint follows through on my promise to focus on keeping Americans safe, keeping terrorists out of our country and putting violent offenders behind bars.
As we stand together with our Irish friends, I'm reminded of that proverb. This is a good one. This is one I like. I've heard it for many many years, and I love it. 'Always remember to forget the friends that proved untrue. But never forget to remember those that have stuck by you.
I said, wait a minute, there's a lot of wiretapping being talked about. I've been seeing a lot of things.
Very seldom. I don't know what newspaper you're reading, but I guess that would be another example of, as you say, fake news. The negotiators for Germany have done a far better job than the negotiators for the United States, but hopefully we can even it out. We don't want victory, we want fairness.
We're going to have a health care plan that's going to be second to none.
Only because everyone knows it's on its last, dying feet, the fake news is trying to say good things about it, the fake media. There is no good news about Obamacare. Obamacare's dead. And there is no good news about Obamacare. Obamacare's dead. Now, we could wait for six months or a year, and let it happen. It's not the right thing to do for the people. And we're going to take care of people at all levels. So I just want to let the world know I am 100 percent in favor. Obamacare is not an alternative. It's not there. It's dead. Dead.
I'm 100 percent behind this. We made certain changes but frankly very little.
All of these no's or potential no's are all yeses.
I don't know what newspaper you're reading, but I guess that would be an example of fake news.
We've got to keep our country safe. You look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's happening last night in Sweden. In addition to winning the electoral college in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.
An 'extremely credible source' has called my office and told me that @BarackObama's birth certificate is a fraud.
I'm accepting no salary. That's not a big deal for me.
Well, you know, I love to read. Actually, I'm looking at a book, I'm reading a book, I'm trying to get started. Every time I do about a half a page, I get a phone call that there's some emergency, this or that. But we're going to see the home of Andrew Jackson today in Tennessee, and I'm reading a book on Andrew Jackson.
I never have. I'm always busy doing a lot. Now I'm more busy, I guess, than ever before.
I know it well. The Irish immigrants and their descendants have made right here in the United States and throughout the world.
We want to be known as the best small country in the world for business. We will compete for mobile business from the U.K. that sees the value of and need for locating in the EU.
I think that maybe I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Twitter, because I get such a fake press, such a dishonest press.
I made – and I was on for 14 seasons. And you see what happened when I'm not on. You saw what happened to the show. It was a disaster.
Would you like to go first? Nice friendly reporter.
I've spent a lot of time at St Patrick's Day parades over the years, I will tell you that.
A budget that puts America first must make the safety of our people its number one priority â because without safety, there can be no prosperity.
We will take care of our people, or I'm not signing it. If we're not going to take care of the people, I'm not signing anything.
We are going to take our case as far as it needs to go, even to the Supreme Court. We are going to win. I will not stop fighting for the safety of you and your families. Not today, not ever. We're going to win it. We are going to win it. We are going to apply common sense. We are never quitting and we are never going away.
I'm sure you've all heard the big news that we're going to work on the CAFE standards so you can make cars in America again. We want to be the car capital of the world again. We will be, and it won't be long. Believe me.
Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. And this is the protection of the nation from foreign terrorist entry into the United States. We all know what that means. Protection of the nation from foreign terrorists' entry into the United States. That's big stuff.
Politically speaking, a lot of us know that.
Let me say to you that as a member of the European Council, what we want to do is to work with America.
It's very preliminary. A lot of things aren't consistent. But these are going to be negotiated. ... We will take care of our people or I'm not signing it, OK, just so you understand. It's going to get all mixed up and we're going to come up with something. We always do.
The House legislation does so much for you. It gives the states Medicaid flexibility and some of the states will take over their health care. Governor Rick Scott in Florida said, just send me the money. They run a great plan. We have states that are doing great. It gives great flexibility.
The bill that I will ultimately sign – and that will be a bill where everybody is going to get into the room and we're going to get it done – we'll get rid of Obamacare and make health care better for you and for your family.
The House has put forward a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, based on the principles I outlined in my joint address, but let me tell you we're going to arbitrate, we're going to all get together, we're going to get something done. It's going to get all mixed up and we're going to come up with something. We always do.
This ruling makes us look weak – which by the way, we no longer are. Believe me. Just look at our borders. We're going to fight this terrible ruling, we're going to take our case as far up as it needs to go, including all the way up to the Supreme Court.
We're going to arbitrate, we're all going to get together, we're going to get something done.
This is watered-down version of the first one. This is a watered-down version. And let me tell you something, I think we ought to go back to the first one and go all the way (through the legal system), which is wanted I wanted to do in the first place.
This is in the opinion of many an unprecedented judicial overreach.
We're having problems with the Muslims, and we're having problems with Muslims coming into the country.
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my 'wires tapped' in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism! Because I don't want to do anything that's going to violate any strength of an agency.
The New York Times wrote about it. Not that I respect The New York Times. I call it the failing New York Times. But they did write on January 20 using the word wiretap.
Let's see whether or not I proved it. You looked at some proof. I mean, let's see whether or not I prove it. I just don't choose to do it right now. … I think we have some very good stuff, and we're in the process of putting it together, and I think it's going to be very demonstrative.
I have no idea where they got it, but it's illegal, and they're not supposed to have it and it's not supposed to be leaked. It's certainly not an embarrassing tax return at all, but it's an illegal thing they've been doing it. They've done it before, and I think it's a disgrace.
It's certainly not an embarrassing return at all.
Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time! Because the song means so much to me and the message means so much to me, and what we're going through right now means so much to me, I wanted to do it justice. And I knew what was in my mind would do it justice.
It's finally happening. Fiat Chrysler just announced plans to invest $1 BILLION in Michigan and Ohio plants, adding 2,000 jobs.
We're going to stop the jobs from leaving our country. It's not going to happen anymore, folks. Already, we're seeing jobs coming back. Since my election … just today, breaking news, General Motors announced that they're adding or keeping 900 jobs right here in Michigan.
We are proposing a budget that will shrink the bloated federal bureaucracy – and I mean bloated – while protecting our national security.
Remember folks: if we don't do anything, Obamacare is gone. It's gone. It's gone.
This ruling makes us look weak which, by the way, we no longer are. The law and Constitution give the president the power to suspend immigration when he deems - or she, or she. Fortunately, it will not be Hillary.
The need for my executive order was clear. I was elected to change our broken and dangerous system and thinking in government that has weakened and endangered our country and left people defenseless.
The assault on the American auto industry, believe me, is over.
Andrew Jackson had a great history. They say that his campaign and his whole thing was most like mine. That was interesting. . . That's the great Andrew Jackson, who actually was a great general, and he was a great president – but a controversial president.
Does that sound familiar to you?
I don't like the idea of taking taxpayer money to run a campaign. I think it's inappropriate.
Wiretap covers a lot of different things. It's certainly not an embarrassing tax return at all.
The Senate's broad, bipartisan support for General McMaster affirms that he is the right person for this job.
This is going to be a new era for American jobs and job creation. The assault on the American auto industry is over. We want you to make great cars. And if it takes an extra thimble full of fuel, we don't want that to stop making it. Sometimes it's a tiny amount of fuel. It's a very small thing we're talking about.
My administration will work tirelessly to eliminate the industry-killing regulations, to lower the job-crushing taxes and to ensure a level playing field for all American companies and workers.
Does anybody really believe that a reporter, who nobody ever heard of, went to his mailbox' and found my tax returns? FAKE NEWS!
The Republicans, frankly, are putting themselves in a very bad position – I tell this to [Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price] all the time – by repealing Obamacare.
Despite this substantial income figure and tax paid, it is totally illegal to steal and publish tax returns.
Among the most important issues from Germany's point of view, regarding the world's economy, is the issue of resilience. That's our top priority.
Does anybody really believe that a reporter, who nobody ever heard of, went to his mailbox' and found my tax returns? @NBCNews FAKE NEWS!
We're going to load it up. You're going to get a lot of equipment.
I saw those numbers. You like me, and I like you.
They are not the Republican people that our representatives are representing.
And don't forget, when I say wiretapping, those words were in quotes. That really covers, because wiretapping is pretty old fashioned stuff, but that really covers surveillance and many other things. And nobody ever talks about the fact that it was in quotes, but that's a very important thing.
Twitter is a wonderful thing for me, because I get the word out … I might not be here talking to you right now as president if I didn't have an honest way of getting the word out.
I think you're going to find some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next two weeks.
Remember this. If we didn't do it the way we're doing it, we need 60 votes, so we'd have to get the Democrats involved. They won't vote, no matter what we do, they're not going to vote. So we're doing it a different way, a complex way, it's fine. The end result is when you have phase one, phase two, phase three, it's going to be great. And then we get on to tax reduction, which I like.
I think Andrew Jackson had a great history, and I think it's very rough when you take somebody off the bill.
You know, the only one that cares about my tax returns are the reporters, OK? They're the only ones. I won. And became president. I don't think they care at all ... I think you care.
This foundation cannot be undermined.
We're gonna show great heart.
At this moment, the laws are set, and I think we have to leave it that way.
We're gonna come up with a new plan that's going to be better health care for more people at a lesser cost. Everybody's got to be covered.
I think I have to by law take $1, so I'll take $1 a year.
Are you ready? Do you have your pen?
My opinion of the media, it's very low. I think the media is, frankly, made up of people in many cases, not in all cases, are not good people.
Save Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security without cuts. Have to do it. I'm not going to cut Social Security like every other Republican. I'm not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid. Every other Republican is going to cut. Even if they wouldn't they don't know what to do because they don't know where they money is. I do. We have a very false economy. … The only thing that is strong is the artificial stock market.
We are in a big, fat, ugly bubble. … The only thing that looks good is the stock market. But if you raise interest rates even a little bit, that's going to come crashing down.
You take a look at what's going on with the stock market. Trillions of dollars of value have been created since I won the election – I mean, trillions.
If rates go up, you're going to see something that's not pretty. It's all a big bubble.
That's not true. I'm sure a lot of very high quality people died.
Sir, please, everyone in California is dead.
I don't even know that I have to deliver a punchline to that, but it's sort of ironic. Who would've thought a year ago that Ted Cruz would be having dinner with my father and I basically have zero contact with him at this point?
I think she made one very catastrophic mistake and that was taking all of these illegals, you know taking all of the people from wherever they come from. And nobody even knows where they come from.
Secret Service did a fantastic job last night. We're having some great discussions. The economy is doing very, very well. Generally speaking we're doing very well.
It's going to be straightened out fast.
We must act now to save Americans from the imploding Obamacare disaster. This is the time we're going to get it done. We're working together, we have some great results. And we have tremendous spirit and I think it's something is just going to happen very shortly.
I'm looking at two-state and one-state, and I like the one that both parties like ... I can live with either one.
We must act now to save Americans from the imploding Obamacare disaster. As bad as it is now, it will get even worse.
Don't believe those phony numbers when you hear 4.9 and 5 percent unemployment. The number's probably 28, 29, as high as 35. In fact, I even heard recently 42 percent. The terrible jobs report that just came out shows the number of people not in the workforce increased by another 425,000 people last month.
You live in your poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed, what the hell do you have to lose?
Ninety-four million Americans are out of the labor force.
This is something that was done to a large extent because of our policies and the policies of this new administration. I said we're bringing back jobs. This is one big example of it.
Since my election, Ford, Fiat-Chrysler, General Motors, Sprint, Softbank, Lockheed, Intel, Walmart and many others, have announced that they will invest billions of dollars in the United States and will create tens of thousands of new American jobs.
I am working on a new system where there will be competition in the Drug Industry. Pricing for the American people will come way down!
We are already winning again, America! Buy American & hire American are the principals at the core of my agenda, which is: JOBS, JOBS, JOBS.
You can get any job done through sheer force of will.
45,000 construction & manufacturing jobs in the U.S. Gulf Coast region. $20 billion investment. We are already winning again, America!
As I said throughout the campaign, I am pro-life and I am deeply committed to investing in women's health and plan to significantly increase federal funding in support of nonabortion services such as cancer screenings. There is an opportunity for organizations to continue the important work they do in support of women's health, while not providing abortion services.
There is no decision so far (regarding a border adjustment tax) so we need to wait and see what the future will bring.
I'm not saying I agree with everything he's doing. I do agree with what they're doing with the banks. ... Beyond that, I'm not so sure I agree with it, because I -- I am worried, ultimately, about inflation.
The fact is that Obama went limping across the finish line. He should have chosen Hillary. It would have been a much different race, I believe. Right now, it looks to me like McCain is probably winning.
I think he's doing great. I think Hillary is a great [secretary of state] appointment. I think that some of the others are just great appointments. ... You watch. So I think he's doing a great job.
He's working very, very hard on many, many fronts. It would be nice if he could focus on one, but he wasn't really given that option.
I certainly think he is a very capable guy and a great speaker. I was watching one of his speeches, and it was absolutely terrific. I think he's inexperienced at this point, but we will see what happens.
I want him to show his birth certificate. ... There's something on that birth certificate that he doesn't like.
I think it's great. ... A lot of people ask me, was the stimulus necessary? I think we would probably be in the Great Depression No. 2, which we probably are already. If they did in 1929 what they're doing now, you probably wouldn't have had a depression.
I really believe that Obama will be a great president, and I hope he is.
I don't know if he'll admit this, but he likes me. I like him. But he's got some wonderful qualities,'. Well, he's a star. I mean, he's really, really done an amazing job in a very short amount of time. The question is experience.
I'm really torn. Number one, as a human being, I like to see people -- it's inconceivable that you know people are sick, like you or I get sick or the kids get sick and you bring them to a doctor -- inconceivable that you know 31 million people can't do that. ... On another level, it's really going to cost a lot of money in terms of competitiveness with this country.
It was as if, after an unexpectedly rich meal, investors had to take their time to digest it. As a result, central banks once more stepped back from the limelight.
This will be investigated, it will all come out. I will be proven right.
This is Masa of SoftBank from Japan. He's one of the great men of industry, so I just want to thank you very much. Crooked Hillary says we must call on Saudi Arabia and other countries to stop funding hate. I am calling on her to immediately return the $25 million plus she got from them for the Clinton Foundation!
If this happened … this is the largest abuse of power that, I think, we have ever seen.
Today, I'm very proud of myself.
We've saved taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars by bringing down the price of … the fantastic – and it is a fantastic – new F-35 jet fighter. We'll be saving billions more on contracts all across our government.
We strongly support NATO, an alliance forged through the bonds of two World Wars that dethroned fascism, and a Cold War that defeated communism. But our partners must meet their financial obligations. And now, based on our very strong and frank discussions, they are beginning to do just that. In fact, I can tell you the money is pouring in.
I got to see a lot of those markets on the campaign. I think I've probably been in all of them over the last 18 months.
How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!
Roy had a whole crazy deal going, but Roy was a really smart guy who liked me and did a great job for me on different things. And he was a tough lawyer, and that's what I wanted. Roy was a very tough guy.
Arnold Schwarzenegger isn't voluntarily leaving the Apprentice, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me. Sad end to great show.
The first meeting Jeff Sessions had with the Russian Amb was set up by the Obama Administration under education program for 100 Ambs... Just out: The same Russian Ambassador that met Jeff Sessions visited the Obama White House 22 times, and 4 times last year alone.
My job is not to represent the world. My job is to represent the United States of America.
I am calling upon members of both parties to pass an education bill that funds school choice for disadvantaged youth, including millions of African-American and Latino children. These families should be free to choose the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school that is right for them. Betsy's going to lead the charge, right?
We should start an immediate investigation into @SenSchumer and his ties to Russia and Putin. A total hypocrite!
I believe an easing of tensions and improved relations with Russia – from a position of strength only – is possible, absolutely possible.
It makes no sense to introduce an agreement with border restrictions or tariffs.
I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it.
We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs.
Education is the civil rights issue of our time. We want millions more to have the same chance to achieve the great success that you're achieving. The love you have for what you do is really fantastic.
Jeff Sessions is an honest man. He did not say anything wrong. He could have stated his response more accurately, but it was clearly not intentional.
They lost the election and now, they have lost their grip on reality. The real story is all of the illegal leaks of classified and other information. It is a total witch hunt!
We will work with our allies, including our friends and allies in the Muslim world, to extinguish this vile enemy from our planet.
I have no relationship with Putin.
Nobody builds better walls than me, believe me.
This great aircraft carrier provides essential capabilities to keep us safe from terrorism and take the fight to the enemy for many years in the future.
I am calling for one of the largest defense spending increases in history.
We are going to have very soon the finest equipment in the world. Our Navy is now the smallest it's been since, believe or not, World War I. Don't worry. It's going to soon be the largest it's been.
And there are 85 million hard-working Americans who would agree with that [rolling back regulations]. We have to address the issues of over-taxation and over-regulation and the lack of access to credit markets to get our small business owners thriving again. Rolling back the overtime regulation is just one example of the many regulations that need to be addressed to do that. We would love to see a delay or a carve-out of sorts for our small business owners.
The public doesn't believe you people anymore. Now maybe I had something to do with that. I don't know. But they don't believe you. If you were straight and really told it like it is . . . I would be your biggest booster.
I was close to Schumer in many ways.
Sessions "could have stated his response more accurately, but it was clearly not intentional. This is a total witch hunt!
I just spoke with Navy and industry leaders and have discussed my plans to undertake a major expansion of our entire Navy fleet, including the 12 (aircraft)-carrier Navy we need. We also need more aircraft, modernized capabilities and greater force levels. Additionally, we must vastly improve our cyber capabilities. We are going to have very soon the finest equipment in the world. We will give our military the tools you need to prevent war and, if required, to fight war and only do one thing. You know what that is? Win. Win.
I am sending the Congress a budget that rebuilds the military, eliminates the defense sequester and calls for one of the largest increases in national defense spending in American history.
Right now, American companies are taxed at one of the highest rates anywhere in the world. My economic team is developing historic tax reform that will reduce the tax rate on our companies so they can compete and thrive anywhere and with anyone.
Hopefully it's power we don't have to use, but if we do, they're in big, big trouble.
Thank you very much, we are here to start the process. It begins as of now, and we'll have tremendous success. Thank you very much.
I don't think so. To keep America safe, we must provide the men and women of the United States military with the tools they need to prevent war.
Ben is going to work with me very, very closely. And HUD has a meaning far beyond housing. If properly done, it's a meaning that's as big as anything there is, and Ben will be able to find that true meaning and the true meaning of HUD as its Secretary.
I just spoke to [Defense Secretary James Mattis] ... who reconfirmed that, and I quote, Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemies.' Ryan's legacy is etched into eternity.
People are dying in vain because this country isn't holding their end of the bargain up, as far as giving freedom and justice, liberty to everybody. That's something that's not happening. I've seen videos, I've seen circumstances where men and women that have been in the military have come back and been treated unjustly by the country they fought have for, and have been murdered by the country they fought for, on our land. That's not right.
Since November 8th, Election Day, the Stock Market has posted $3.2 trillion in GAINS and consumer confidence is at a 15 year high. Jobs!
But our slow and burdensome approval process at the Food and Drug Administration keeps too many advances, like the one that saved Megan's life, from reaching those in need. If we slash the restraints, not just at the FDA but across our Government, then we will be blessed with far more miracles like Megan.
Must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees.
He's the head of the IRS. And he's a very good man. And while I'm a strong conservative and a strong Republican, he's a friend of mine.
I have no idea how it looks, but I think it looks good. It's a great-looking hat, just like this is a great-looking ship.
The time is right for an immigration bill if both sides are willing to compromise. I believe Republicans and Democrats can work together to achieve an outcome that has eluded our country for decades.
The time has come to give Americans the freedom to purchase health insurance across state lines.
They told me – without even complaining because they have been mistreated for so long that they have become used to it – that it is very hard to do business with other countries because they tax our goods at such a high rate. They said that in one case another country taxed their motorcycles at 100 percent.
There's very little bidding on drugs. We're the largest buyer of drugs in the world. And yet we don't bid properly. We're going to start bidding.
While we may be a nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil. Lincoln was right – and it is time we heeded his words. I am not going to let America and its great companies and workers, be taken advantage of anymore.
The stock market has gained almost $3 trillion in value since the election on Nov. 8th, a record.
The first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, warned that the 'abandonment of the protective policy by the American Government [will] produce want and ruin among our people.
Real and positive immigration reform is possible.
The time has come for a new program of national rebuilding. America has spent approximately $6 trillion in the Middle East, all this while our infrastructure at home is crumbling. With the $6 trillion, we could have rebuilt our country twice, and maybe even three times, if we had people who had the ability to negotiate, . Crumbling infrastructure will be replaced with new roads, bridges, tunnels, airports and railways gleaming across our very, very beautiful land.
Ryan's legacy is etched into eternity. For as the Bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one's life for one's friends. Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country, and for our freedom – we will never forget him.
The challenges we face as a nation are great. But our people are even greater. And none are greater or braver than those who fight for America in uniform.
According to data provided by the Department of Justice, the vast majority of individuals convicted for terrorism-related offenses since 9/11 came here from outside of our country. We have seen the attacks at home – from Boston to San Bernardino to the Pentagon and yes, even the World Trade Center.
Obamacare is collapsing ... imploding Obamacare disaster.
Currently, when we ship products out of America, many other countries make us pay very high tariffs and taxes – but when foreign companies ship their products into America, we charge them almost nothing or almost nothing.
Each American generation passes the torch of truth, liberty and justice, in an unbroken chain all the way down to the present. That torch is now in our hands. And we will use it to light up the world.
I can understand people saying that. This was a mission that was started before I got here. This was something that was, you know, just they wanted to do. They came to see me. They explained what they wanted to do, the generals, who are very respected.
Tonight, I am also calling on this Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare with reforms that expand choice, increase access, lower costs, and at the same time, provide better health care. Obamacare is collapsing – and we must act decisively to protect all Americans. Action is not a choice – it is a necessity. So I am calling on all Democrats and Republicans in the Congress to work with us to save Americans from this imploding Obamacare disaster. Everything that is broken in our country can be fixed. Every problem can be solved. And every hurting family can find healing, and hope.
Our citizens deserve this, and so much more – so why not join forces to finally get it done? On this and so many other things, Democrats and Republicans should get together and unite for the good of our country, and for the good of the American people.
We will shortly take new steps to keep our nation safe and to keep out those who would do us harm.
Switching away from this current system of lower-skilled immigration, and instead adopting a merit-based system, will have many benefits: It will save countless dollars, raise workers' wages, and help struggling families – including immigrant families – enter the middle class.
We are providing a voice to those who have been ignored by our media, and silenced by special interests.
By finally enforcing our immigration laws, we will raise wages, help the unemployed, save billions of dollars, and make our communities safer for everyone. The time is right for an immigration bill if both sides are willing to compromise.
Nations around the world, like Canada, Australia and many others have a merit-based immigration system. It is a basic principle that those seeking to enter a country ought to be able to support themselves financially. Yet, in America, we do not enforce this rule, straining the very public resources that our poorest citizens rely upon. According to the National Academy of Sciences, our current immigration system costs America's taxpayers many billions of dollars a year.
Switching away from [America's] current system of lower-skilled immigration, and instead adopting a merit-based system, will have many benefits: it will save countless dollars, raise workers' wages, and help struggling – families including immigrant families – enter the middle class. I am going to bring back millions of jobs. Protecting our workers also means reforming our system of legal immigration. The current, outdated system depresses wages for our poorest workers, and puts great pressure on taxpayers.
Currently, when we ship products out of America, many other countries make us pay very high tariffs and taxes – but when foreign companies ship their products into America, we charge them almost nothing. The stock market has gained almost three trillion dollars in value since the election on November 8th, a record.
We must restore integrity and rule of law to our boarders.
Dying industries will come roaring back to life. Heroic veterans will get the care they so desperately need ... Crumbling infrastructure will be replaced with new roads, bridges, airports and railways gleaming across our beautiful land.
The "time for trivial fights is behind us.
Buy American, and hire American.
When we celebrate our 250 years of glorious freedom, we will look back on tonight as when this new chapter of American greatness began. The time for small thinking is over.
Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country and for our freedom. We will never forget him. Ryan is looking down right now, you know that, and he's very happy, because I think he just broke a record.
It's been a little over a month since my inauguration, and I want to take this moment to update the nation on the progress I've made in keeping those promises.
I [had] thought, Oh, gee, I don't have experience. I don't know enough. I don't.
We are also taking strong measures to protect our nation from radical Islamic terrorism.
Ryan's legacy is etched into eternity.
The time has come for a new programme of national rebuilding. I will be asking the Congress to approve legislation that produces a $1 trillion investment in the infrastructure of the United States – financed through both public and private capital – creating millions of new jobs.
Finally the chorus became an earthquake, and the people turned out by the tens of millions, and they were all united by one very simple but crucial demand, that America must put its own citizens first.
Bad ones are going out as I speak tonight. It is not compassionate, but reckless, to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur ... We cannot allow a beachhead of terrorism to form inside America – we cannot allow our nation to become a sanctuary for extremists. Solving these, and so many other pressing problems, will require us to work past the differences of party. Everything that is broken in our country can be fixed. Every problem can be solved. And every hurting family can find healing, and hope.
The time for small thinking is over.
We should help Americans purchase their own coverage, through the use of tax credits and expanded health savings Accounts – but it must be the plan they want, not the plan forced on them by the government.
We are a country, that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms.
I am here tonight to deliver a message of unity and strength, and it is a message deeply delivered from my heart. A new chapter of American greatness is now beginning. A new national pride is sweeping across our nation. And a new surge of optimism is placing impossible dreams firmly within our grasp. What we are witnessing today is the renewal of the American spirit.
We will soon begin the construction of a great, great wall along our southern border.
Recent threats targeting Jewish community centers and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, as well as last week's shooting in Kansas City, remind us that while we may be a nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all of its very ugly forms.
Nobody knew that health care could be so complicated.
Tonight, as I outline the next steps we must take as a country, we must honestly acknowledge the circumstances we inherited.
The EPA so-called Waters of the United States rule is one of the worst examples of federal regulation, and it has truly run amok, and is one of the rules most strongly opposed by farmers, ranchers and agricultural workers all across our land. It's prohibiting them from being allowed to do what they're supposed to be doing. It has been a disaster. With today's executive order I'm directing the EPA to take action paving the way for the elimination of this very destructive and horrible rule.
There's a big agenda to get done through Congress and I think bridge building is necessary. You either have one or the other – you have specifics or you have 'let's put a bridge out so we can work together on this.' I don't think we can have neither.
According to the National Academy of Sciences, our current immigration system costs America's taxpayers many billions of dollars a year. Since my election, Ford, Fiat-Chrysler, General Motors, Sprint, Softbank, Lockheed, Intel, Walmart and many others have announced that they will invest billions of dollars in the United States and will create tens of thousands of new American jobs. Ninety-four million Americans are out of the labor force.
The time for small thinking is over. It is not compassionate but reckless, to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur.
The time is right for an immigration bill as long as there is compromise on both sides.
Well, this was a mission that was started before I got here. My generals are the most respected that we've had in many decades, I believe, and they lost Ryan. I met most of the family, and I can understand people saying that. I'd feel you know, I'd feel – what's worse?
But again this is something they (U.S. military officials) were looking at for a long time now.
Well you never know what's happening behind the scenes, you're probably right, or possibly right, but you never know. No, I think that President Obama's behind it, because his people are certainly behind it. And some of the leaks possibly come from that group. You know some of the leaks, which are really serious leaks because they're very bad in terms of national security, but I also understand that's politics, and in terms of him being behind things, that's politics, and it will probably continue.
You can't con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don't deliver the goods, people will catch on. You have to convince the other guy it's in his interest to make the deal.
I'm very good to people who are very good to me. But when people treat me badly or unfairly or try to take advantage of me, my general attitude, all my life, has been to fight back very hard. The risk is that you'll make a bad situation worse, and I certainly don't recommend this approach to everyone.
This budget will be a public safety and national security budget, very much based on those two with plenty of other things, but very strong, and it will include an historic increase in defence spending to rebuild the depleted military of the United States of America at a time we most need it.
I think the money is going to come from a revved up economy. I mean you look at the kind of numbers we're doing. If I can get that up to 3 [percent] or maybe more, we have a whole different ballgame.
I think President Obama is behind it because his people are certainly behind it.
I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn't get the act together at the end.
Maybe I change it during the speech.
In terms of messaging, I would give myself a 'C' or a 'C-plus'. My messaging isn't good. A lot those jobs I don't want to appoint. They are unnecessary to have.
If I can get [growth] up 3 [percent] or maybe more, we have a whole different ballgame. That's what we're looking to do.
I mean you look at the kind of numbers we're doing, we were probably GDP of a little more than 1 percent and if I can get that up to 3 or maybe more, we have a whole different ball game. It's a whole different ball game.
We have come up with a solution that's really, really, I think, very good. I have to tell you, it's an unbelievably complex subject. Nobody really knew that health care could be so complicated.
I can understand people saying that. I say, What do all these people do?' You don't need all those jobs. That's not a bad thing. That's a good thing. We're running a very good, efficient government. I also understand that's politics. And in terms of him being behind things, that's politics. And it will probably continue. I'm changing things that (Obama) wanted to do. He "would have handled it differently than Sean. But Sean handles it his way and I'm OK with it.
I mean, you know, there are things you can do that are a hell of a lot worse than that, I'll be honest with you. We have sort of ideas. But don't forget, we have people from other campaigns, we have people from other governments. We've got a lot of people here.
We're going to spend a lot more money on military. We're going to get involved in negotiating. We're going to be able to get, I think, a lot more product for a buck and I'm going to be very, very serious about it.
As part of my pledge to restore safety for the American people, I have…directed the defense community to develop a plan to totally obliterate ISIS. Working with our allies, we will eradicate this evil from the face of the Earth.
We're going to start spending on infrastructure, big.
2017 is going to be a catastrophic year for Obamacare for patients. We have a plan that's going to be fantastic. A very competitive plan, costs will come down, health care will go up very substantially. People will like it a lot. It's going to be special. I think you're going to like what you hear.
My first budget will be submitted to the Congress next month. This budget will be a public safety and national security budget, very much based on those two with plenty of other things, but very strong, and it will include an historic increase in defence spending to rebuild the depleted military of the United States of America at a time we most need it.
Tax reform is going to be major, simple and wonderful, but we can't do it until we do health care.
There was something very special missing.
I'm going to have a big statement tomorrow night on infrastructure. We spend $6 trillion in the Middle East and we have potholes all over our highways and our roads ... so we're going to take care of that. Infrastructure – we're going to start spending on infrastructure big. Not like we have a choice. It's not like, oh gee, let's hold it off.
I haven't called Russia in 10 years.
We must work together to save Americans from Obamacare.
Russia talk is FAKE NEWS put out by the Dems, and played up by the media, in order to mask the big election defeat and the illegal leaks.
We're going to be speaking very specifically about a very complicated subject. I think we have something that is really going to be excellent. We've made a lot of promises over the last two years, and many of those promises already are kept so we've very honored by that.
Koch has achieved something quite miraculous. He's presided over an administration that is both pervasively corrupt and totally incompetent.
Bernie's guy, like Bernie himself, never had a chance. Clinton demanded Perez!
Congratulations to Thomas Perez, who has just been named Chairman of the DNC. I could not be happier for him, or for the Republican Party!
I will not be attending the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!
We're all part of this very historic movement. A movement the likes of which actually the world has never seen before.
And I said, Jim, let me ask you a question, how's Paris doing?, Paris? I don't go there anymore. Paris is no longer Paris.
Take a look at what's happened in France. I have a friend, he's a very, very substantial guy, he loves the city of lights. He loves Paris. Hadn't seen him in a while.
We've defended other nations' borders while leaving ours wide open, anybody can come in. We're going to build a wall, don't worry about it. We're building the wall, we're building the wall. In fact, it's going to start soon. Way ahead of schedule, way ahead of schedule.
Excessive regulation is killing jobs, driving companies out of our country like never before. Every regulation should have to pass a simple test; does it make life better or safer for American workers or consumers?
We're going to put the regulation industry out of work and out of business. And by the way, I want regulation. I want to protect our environment. I want regulations for safety. I want all of the regulations that we need and I want them to be so strong and so tough. But we don't need 75 percent of the repetitive, horrible regulations that hurt companies, hurt jobs.
We are going to keep radical Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country.
They shouldn't be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody's name. Let their name be put out there. I loved the commotion. And then they did these polls where I went through the roof and I wasn't even running, right? But it gave me an idea. One by one, we're checking off the promises we made to the American people. As we speak today, immigration officers are finding gang members, drug dealers and criminal aliens and throwing them the hell out. You're going to love it.
I certainly support a form of tax on the border. What is going to happen is companies are going to come back here, they're going to build their factories and they're going to create a lot of jobs and there's no tax.
Obamacare covers very few people.
The fake news doesn't tell the truth. It doesn't represent the people. It will never represent the people and we're going to do something about it.
I'm against the people that make up stories and make up sources. They shouldn't be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody's name. You're going to love it.
You see what's happening at the border. All of a sudden for the first time we're getting gang members out, were getting drug lords out. We're getting really bad dudes out of this country and at a rate that nobody has ever seen before. And they're the bad ones. And it's a military operation.
The FBI is totally unable to stop the national security 'leakers' that have permeated our government for a long time. They can't even find the leakers within the FBI itself.
We will not be deterred from this course.
Over $700 million. Do you think Hillary would have cost you $700 million? I assume you wanted her to win.
We're gonna do something about it.
Our country will be great again.
People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate. There has been so little trouble.
They can't even find the leakers within the FBI itself. Classified information is being given to media that could have a devastating effect on U.S. FIND NOW.
By the way, Ron Paul cannot get elected, I'm sorry.
I am really inclined. I want to do it so badly.
People go, they use the bathrooms that they feel is appropriate. I think that local communities and states should make the decision ... The federal government should not be involved.
No, I like the two-state solution. But I ultimately like what the both parties like. People have been talking about it for so many years now. It so far hasn't worked. I like this two-state solution, but I am satisfied with whatever both parties agree with.
It's very late. We're very angry at what he's done, and frankly this should have been taken care of during the Obama administration.
Just another bad deal that the country made, whether it's START, whether it's the Iran deal ... We're going to start making good deals.
We have to let other countries give you a level playing field.
And you're going to be doing pipelines now, you know that, right? We put you heavy into the pipeline business because we approved, as you know, the Keystone pipeline and Dakota, but they have to buy, meaning steel, so I'll say U.S. steel, but steel made in this country and pipelines made in this country.
Everything is going to be based on bringing our jobs back. The good jobs, the real jobs. They've left.
I actually said to my people, find a country where we actually do well. So far, we haven't found that country. It's just losses with everybody and we're going to turn that around.
We have to be treated fairly by Mexico.
Unfortunately, the budget we're essentially inheriting is a mess. The finances of our country are a mess.
We must do a lot more with less.
I'm a conservative, but don't forget: This is called the Republican Party, not the Conservative Party.
Moreover, in light of the Government's shifting interpretations of the Executive Order, we cannot say that the current interpretation by White House counsel, even if authoritative and binding, will persist past the immediate stage of these proceedings.
We're going to be announcing something over the next, I would say, two or three weeks that will be phenomenal in terms of tax.
If you see someone getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously. Knock the hell out of them. I promise you I will pay for the legal fees. I promise. I will say that people who are following me are very passionate. They love this country, and they want this country to be great again.
Before we do the tax – which is actually very well finalized – but we can't submit it until the health care statutorily or otherwise. So we're doing the health care – again moving along very well – sometime during the month of March, maybe mid-to-early March, we'll be submitting something that I think people will be very impressed by.
We have to build the wall. We have to stop drugs from pouring in.
We have to get the prices down.
There are a lot of killers. You think [the US is] so innocent?
Rest assured that your President and this Administration value the importance of renewable fuels to America's economy and to our energy independence.
Honestly, it's fantastic.
The so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous cases, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!
The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centres are horrible and are painful, and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil.
My statement as to what's happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden. The FAKE NEWS media is trying to say that large-scale immigration in Sweden is working out just beautifully. NOT!
I think we're really coming to a point where you're going to see things change. I think the president is going to have to give at least some hint of details. If he just gets up and says 'I'm still working on this package and it's wonderful,' the market will be disappointed.
We're building up to a very, very important time here.
I will tell you that anti-Semitism is horrible, and it's going to stop and it has to stop.
There has never been a presidency that's done so much in such a short period of time.
We are going to lower taxes on American business so it's cheaper and easier to produce products and beautiful things like airplanes right here in America.
It Has to Stop.
We have to have a safe country. We have to let people come in that are going to love the country. This is about love. This building is about love. And we have to have people come in that are going to love the country, not people that are gonna harm the country.
You don't know where it's coming from, but I hope they catch the people.
If we kept the oil you probably wouldn't have ISIS because that's where they made their money in the first place. So we should have kept the oil, but OK. Maybe we'll have another chance.
Your reputation is amazing. I will not let you down.
The FAKE NEWS media is trying to say that large scale immigration in Sweden is working out just beautifully. NOT!
We should have kept the oil. But okay. Maybe you'll have another chance.
To the victor belong the spoils. So we should have kept the oil. But, OK, maybe you'll have another chance.
Here's the bottom line. We've got to keep our country safe. You look at what's happening. We've got to keep our country safe. You look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's happening last night in Sweden.weden. Who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible.
You look at what's happening in Brussels. You look at what's happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris. We've allowed thousands and thousands of people into our country and there was no way to vet those people. There was no documentation. There was no nothing. So we're going to keep our country safe.
We've got to keep our country safe. You look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this?
I always used to say, keep the oil. I wasn't a fan of Iraq. I didn't want to go into Iraq. But I will tell you, when we were in, we got out wrong. And I always said, in addition to that, keep the oil.
When the media lies to people I will never ever let them get away with it, I will do whatever I can that they don't get away with it. They have their own agenda and their agenda is not your agenda.
Life is a campaign. Making our country great again is a campaign. They're doing the wrong thing for the American people.
Let us move past the differences of party and find a new loyalty rooted deeply in our country.
They have their own agenda, and their agenda is not your agenda. We will do something next week, I think you'll be impressed. If you have a college education, you can understand it. If you have a high school education you can understand it, if you were a bad student in high school you can understand it.
I have many, many that want the job, they want to really be a part of it. I'll make a decision over the next couple of days.
To make America great again is absolutely a campaign. It's not easy, especially when we're also fighting the press. Don't believe the main stream (fake news) media. The White House is running VERY WELL. I inherited a MESS and am in the process of fixing it.
Will be having many meetings this weekend at The Southern White House.
Looking forward to the Florida rally tomorrow. Big crowd expected!
Don't believe the main stream (fake news) media. The White House is running VERY WELL. I inherited a MESS and am in the process of fixing it. America is going to start winning again, winning like never ever before. We're not going to let our country be taken advantage of anymore in any way, shape or form.
America is going to start winning again, winning like never ever before. We're not going to let our country be taken advantage of anymore in any way, shape or form. General Keith Kellogg, who I have known for a long time, is very much in play for NSA – as are three others.
I've made it a point to cut through the media's noise and go straight to the American people. It worked during the campaign, and it will work again over these next four years.
This is our mantra: buy American, and hire American. We're going to save billions and billions of dollars. Most important, we are going to have a great product from both Boeing and Lockheed.
The FAKENEWS media ... is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People! The name says it all. Dreamliner, great name. Our country is all about making dreams come true. As your president I'm going to do everything I can to unleash the power of the American spirit and to put our great people back to work. This is our mantra: Buy American and hire American.
I inherited a mess.'' But many economists suggest nothing could be further from the truth.
We are going to fight for jobs. We are going to fight for our families. The name says it all. Dreamliner, great name. Our country is all about making dreams come true. As your president I'm going to do everything I can to unleash the power of the American spirit and to put our great people back to work. This is our mantra: Buy American and hire American. America is going to start winning again, winning like never before.
Just like you built this incredible airplane behind me, we're going to rebuild this country and ensure that every forgotten community has a bright future. God bless America, and God bless Boeing.
The leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake, because so much of the news is fake.
Do you want to set up the meeting? Are they friends of yours?
ISIS, to me, is really not a hell of a lot different than the militia movement in the U.S.
Rush Limbaugh said one of the greatest ever. Fake media not happy!
I'm looking at a two state and one state, and I like the one that both parties like. I'm very happy with the one that both parties like. I could live with either one.
Maybe it's not, and that's OK, too.
We had a very smooth roll-out of the travel ban. But we had a bad court. We had a bad decision. We had a court that has been overturned again, I may be wrong but I think it is 80% of the time, a lot. We had a bad decision.We are going to keep going with that decision, we are going to put in a new executive order next week.
I am the least anti-Semitic person that you've ever seen in your entire life.
Tax reform's going to happen fairly quickly. We're doing Obamacare. We're in the final stages.
We got 306 because people came out and voted like they've never seen before so that's the way it goes. I was given that information. Actually, I've seen that information around.
We're doing Obamacare, we're in the final stages. So, we will be submitting sometime in early March, mid-March.
We'll take care of It, folks. We're going to take care of it all. I just want to let you know. I inherited a mess.
It's a mess. At home and abroad. A mess. Jobs are pouring out of the country. You see what's going on with all of the companies leaving our country. Going to Mexico and other places. Low pay, low wages.
I fired him because of what he said to Mike Pence, very simple. Mike was doing his job. He was calling countries and his counterparts, so it certainly would have been OK with me if he did it. I would have directed him to do it if I thought he wasn't doing it. I didn't direct him, but I would have directed him, because that's his job.
The leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake. You know, first everybody got excited because they thought he did something wrong. After they thought about it, it turned out he was just doing his job. I can tell you, speaking for myself, I own nothing in Russia. I have no loans in Russia. I don't have any deals in Russia.
The press has become so dishonest that if we don't talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people.
We had Hillary Clinton give Russia 20 percent of the uranium in our country. You know what uranium is, right? It's a thing called nuclear weapons and other things. Like lots of things are done with uranium, including some bad things.
Drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars. We're not going to let it happen any longer.
The greatest thing I could do is shoot that ship that's 30 miles offshore right out of the water.
The fake, horrible reporting makes it much harder to make a deal with Russia.
Nobody that I know. This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine. To the best of my knowledge no person that I deal with does.
I hope that we'll be able to straighten that out without using anybody else.
The only thing they can do is delay because they've screwed things up, royally.
The press – the public doesn't believe you people anymore. Now, maybe I had something to do with that. I don't know. But they don't believe you. But you've got to be at least a little bit fair, and that's why the public sees it. They see it. They see it's not fair. You take a look at some of your shows and you see the bias and the hatred. Tremendous disservice. Well, I don't know, I was given that information. But it was a very substantial victory, do you agree with that?
We will be issuing a new and very comprehensive order to protect our people.
So, I'm looking at two-state and one-state and I like the one that both parties like. I'm very happy with the one that both parties like. I can live with either one. If Bibi and if the Palestinians…if Israel and the Palestinians are happy, I'm happy with the one they like the best.
The NSA and the FBI should not interfere in our politics. Information is being illegally given (to newspapers) by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?) Just like Russia.
I would love to meet with the black caucus, I think it's great. I actually thought I had a meeting with Congressman Cummings and he was all excited and then he said, Oh I can't move it might be bad for me politically. I can't have that meeting.
I have to deal with a lot of politicians, don't forget. And I have to convince them that what I'm saying is, is right.
We're going to show great heart. DACA is a very, very difficult subject for me, I will tell you. To me, it's one of the most difficult subjects I have.
I will not back down from defending our country. I got elected on defense of our country.
Nobody that I know of. We're a very powerful nuclear country, and so are they. That's why we did it quickly. Would have wasted a lot of time, and maybe a lot of lives. I didn't direct him (to make the call), but I would have directed him because that was his job. Comprehensively protect our country. SEE YOU IN COURT! Maybe we won't and that's OK. So they made up a story - RUSSIA. Fake news! Low-life leakers. Leaking, and even illegal classified leaking, has been a big problem in Washington for years. Failing @nytimes (and others) must apologize!
I've also worked to install a Cabinet over the delays and obstruction of Senate Democrats. You've seen what they've done over the last long number of years.
This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine. Russia is fake news. This is fake news put out by the media.
ISIS has spread like cancer, another mess I inherited.
To be honest I inherited a mess. It's a mess. At home and abroad, a mess.
I didn't direct him, but I would have directed him if he didn't do it. The leaks are real. The news is fake.
The "level of dishonesty is out of control.
Comprehensively protect our country. SEE YOU IN COURT! Maybe we won't and that's OK. So they made up a story - RUSSIA. Fake news! Low-life leakers. Leaking, and even illegal classified leaking, has been a big problem in Washington for years. Failing @nytimes (and others) must apologize! The spotlight has finally been put on the low-life leakers! They will be caught! Classified information is illegally given out by 'intelligence' like candy. Very un-American!
The man I'll be announcing for labor is a star, great person. Low-life leakers.
It was just a heads-up to expect some executive orders, that's it.
The Democrats had to come up with a story as to why they lost the election, and so badly (306). So they made up a story - RUSSIA. Fake news! Low-life leakers. Leaking, and even illegal classified leaking, has been a big problem in Washington for years. Failing @nytimes (and others) must apologize! The spotlight has finally been put on the low-life leakers! They will be caught! Classified information is illegally given out by 'intelligence' like candy. Very un-American!
It is a Chinese-centric Asia nowadays. The exports of Taiwan, South Korea, to China are much more important than to the U.S. All the Asian countries for them, exports to China are the key, tourists from China are the key.
Believe me, if I become president, oh do they have problems. They're going to have such problems.
There is nothing the political establishment will not do, and no lie they will not tell, to hold on to their prestige and power at your expense. For those who control the levers of power in Washington, and for the global special interests they partner with, our campaign represents an existential threat. It's a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class ... and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities.
From intelligence, papers are being leaked, things are being leaked – it's criminal action, criminal act, and it's been going on for a long time.
You know that, right?
I think we're going to make a deal, it might be a bigger and better deal than people in this room even understand. That's a possibility. So let's see what we do.
That doesn't sound too optimistic, but he's a good negotiator.
SEE YOU IN COURT!
I think it's very, very unfair what's happened to General Flynn, the way he was treated, and the documents and papers that were illegally, I stress that, illegally leaked.
The United States will encourage a peace and really a great peace deal. We will be working on it very, very diligently. But it is the parties themselves who must directly negotiate such an agreement.
Gen. Flynn is a wonderful man, I think he's been treated very, very unfairly by the media – as I call it, the 'fake media,' in many cases. And I think it's really a sad thing that he was treated so badly….
You're going to see a lot of love. We're looking at it with great care.
Other than H&R Block, I think people are going to love it. Crimea was TAKEN by Russia during the Obama Administration. Was Obama too soft on Russia? @MSNBC & @CNN are unwatchable. @foxandfriends is great!
This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton's losing campaign.
My administration remains very focused on economic growth issues.
Costs are out of control. Cancel order!
They are here illegally. They shouldn't be very worried. I do have a big heart. We're going to take care of everybody. We're going to have a very strong border.
The embassy is not an easy decision. It has obviously been out there for many, many years, and nobody has wanted to make that decision. I'm thinking about it very seriously, and we will see what happens.
The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?
We're actually taking people that are criminals, very, very, hardened criminals in some cases with a tremendous track record of abuse and problems.
We have a very outstanding trade relationship with Canada. We'll be tweaking it. We'll be doing certain things that are going to benefit both of our countries. It's a much less severe situation than what's taking place on the southern border, on the southern border for many many years. The transaction was not fair to the United States.
Reince is doing a great job. Great. Not a good job. A great job.
We have a very outstanding trade relationship with Canada. We'll be tweaking it. We'll be doing certain things that are going to benefit both of our countries. It's a much less severe situation than what's taken place on the southern border.
North Korea is a big, big problem and we will deal with that very strongly.
Tax reform will not change our charitable giving.
In order to create economic growth and lots of very good, well-paying jobs, we must ensure that our economy is a place where women can work and thrive, and I think that's happening in the United States much more so.
We don't want our country to have the kind of problems you see taking place not only here but the rest of the world. American and Canadian troops have gone to battle together, fought wars together and forged the special bonds that come when two nations have shed their blood together – which we have.
We have a very outstanding trade relationship with Canada. We'll be tweaking it. We'll be doing certain things that are going to benefit both of our countries. It's a much less severe situation than what's taking place on the southern border. It's a much less severe situation than what's happening on the southern border. The "outstanding trade relationship with Canada.
I said at the beginning we are going to get the bad ones, the really bad ones, we are going to get them out.
America "is deeply fortunate to have a neighbor like Canada. The full power of women can do better than anybody else. The "system is not working so well for entrepreneurs.
The crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise. Gang members, drug dealers & others are being removed!
We're gonna open the mines.
I just want everybody to understand, and fully know, that the United States of America is behind Japan, our great ally, 100 percent.
Why did I have to wait to have this guy tell me?
Having a great time hosting Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the United States.
When I do, just like with the F-35 FighterJet or the Air Force One Program, price will come WAY DOWN! Our legal system is broken! '77% of refugees allowed into U.S. since travel reprieve hail from seven suspect countries.' (WT) SO DANGEROUS!
They're taking a lot of heat. But you know what? They're also getting a lot of popularity out of it. I think they're going to do very well. Tom's a winner.
We are committed to the security of Japan and all areas under its administrative control and to further strengthening our very crucial alliance. The bond between our two nations and the friendship between our two peoples runs very, very deep. This administration is committed to bringing those ties even closer.
I believe that will all work out very well for everybody, China, Japan, the United States and everybody in the region.
It's a decision that we'll win, in my opinion, very easily and, by the way, we won that decision in Boston.
He better be careful.
Snowden is a spy who should be executed.
We also have a lot of other options, including just filing a brand new order. We need speed for reasons of security. So it could very well be that we do that. I'd like to surprise you.
I want Israel to be reasonable with respect to peace. I want to see peace happen. I would like to see a level of reasonableness of both parties, and I think we have a good chance of doing that. Every time you take land for settlements, there is less land left. I am not somebody that believes that going forward with these settlements is a good thing for peace. The embassy is not an easy decision. It has obviously been out there for many, many years, and nobody has wanted to make that decision. I'm thinking about it very seriously, and we will see what happens.
Unfortunately, we have a nuclear world now.
We will be doing something very rapidly having to do with additional security for our country. You will be seeing that sometime next week. You could only learn, frankly, if you were in a certain position, namely: president. Would I rather have North Korea have them with Japan sitting there having them also? You may very well be better off if that's the case. In other words, where Japan is defending itself against North Korea, which is a real problem.
Ultimately, I have no doubt that we'll win that particular case. We're going to win the case. 3-0.
LAWFARE: 'Remarkably, in the entire opinion, the panel did not bother even to cite this (the) statute.' A disgraceful decision!
Well, I want Israel to be reasonable with respect to peace. I want to see peace happen. It should happen. After all these years. ... Maybe there is even a chance for a bigger peace than just Israel and the Palestinians. I would like to see a level of reasonableness of both parties, and I think we have a good chance of doing that.
See you in court, the security of our nation is at stake!
Chris Cuomo, in his interview with Sen. Blumenthal, never asked him about his long-term lie about his brave 'service' in Vietnam. FAKE NEWS!
We have a situation where the security of our country is at stake and it's a very, very serious situation so we look forward ... to seeing them in court. We're going to win the case. 3-0.
We have a situation where the security of our country is at stake and it's a very, very serious situation so we look forward ... to seeing them in court. We're going to win the case.
Our airports used to be the best, now they're at the bottom of the rung. We have an obsolete plane system, we have obsolete airports, we have obsolete trains, we have bad roads. We're going to change all of that.
Lowering the overall tax burden on American businesses, big league, that's coming along very well and we are way ahead of schedule, I believe, and we are going to be announcing something I would say over the next two or three weeks that will be phenomenal in terms of tax. So we want to help you realise these goals by rolling back burdensome regulations, and you people are regulated probably as much as almost anybody, although I can think of a couple of industries that are even worse.
I hear the government contracted for a system, that's the wrong system. It's way over budget, it's way behind schedule and when it's complete it's not going to be a good system.
He asserted incorrectly then that it had allowed Russia to continue to produce nuclear warheads while the United States could not.
These dangerous times require a determined attorney general.
His comments were misrepresented. And what you should do is ask Senator Blumenthal about his Vietnam record that didn't exist after years of saying it did. Courts seem to be so political and it would be so great for our justice system if they would be able to read a statement and do what's right. And that has to do with the security of our country, which is so important. Big increase in traffic into our country from certain areas, while our people are far more vulnerable, as we wait for what should be EASY D!
To make sure that there would be enough Chinese nuclear weapons to survive a U.S. first strike and not be neutralized by U.S. missile defense, China may have an increasing incentive to adopt the launch-on-warning posture.
My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person – always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!
[The American people] have great respect and admiration for the people in this room and the people that you represent. And don't let anyone ever tell you different. Don't let the dishonest media try and convince you that it's different than that, because it's not.
Richard Blumenthal, who never fought in Vietnam when he said for years he had (major lie), now misrepresents what Judge Gorsuch told him?
Our airports are like from a third world country. You land at LaGuardia, you land at Kennedy, you land at LAX, you land at Newark, and you come in from Dubai and Qatar and you see these incredible – you come in from China, you see these incredible airports, and you land – we've become a third world country.
See how beautiful my hands are, look at those hands. Those are powerful hands. (They can) hit a golf ball 285 yards.
The threat from radical Islamic terrorism is very real.
Courts seem to be so political and it would be so great for our justice system if they would be able to read a statement and do what's right. And that has to do with the security of our country, which is so important. We have to allow you to do your job. And we have to give you the weapons that you need, and this is a weapon that you need and they're trying to take it away from you. Big increase in traffic into our country from certain areas, while our people are far more vulnerable, as we wait for what should be EASY D!
I don't ever want to call a court biased.
I have to be honest that if those judges wanted to, in my opinion, help the court in terms of respect for the court, they'd do what they should be doing.
Right now, we are at risk because of what happened.
No one in America should be punished. We've allowed too many young lives to be claimed. A bad high school student would understand this. Courts seem to be so political.
If the U.S. does not win this case as it so obviously should, we can never have the security and safety to which we are entitled. Politics!
We're going to have a round of golf, which is a great thing. That's the one thing about golf. You get to know somebody better on a golf course than you will over lunch.
I actually can't believe that we're having to fight to protect the security, in a court system, to protect the security of our nation.
Radical Islamic terrorists are determined to strike our homeland, as they did on 9/11, as they did from Boston to Orlando to San Bernardino and all across Europe. It's gotten to a point where it's not even being reported, and in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to report it. They have their reasons. And you understand that.
Who is the state senator? Do you want to give his name? We'll destroy his career.
Betsy DeVos is a reformer, and she is going to be a great Education Sec. for our kids!
You know, we weren't supposed to do very well in your state and we lost by 1 point. I say if I went there one more visit, we would have won – we would have won Minnesota.
Who is the state senator? Do you want to give his name? We'll destroy his career. I don't know Putin, have no deals in Russia, and the haters are going crazy - yet Obama can make a deal with Iran, #1 in terror, no problem!
We're going to take it through the system. It's very important, it's very important for the country regardless of me or whoever succeeds at a later date. We have to have security in our country. We will see.
People "were pouring in.
You've seen what happened in Paris, in Nice, all over Europe it's happening. It's gotten to a point where it's not even being reported. And in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to report it. They have their reasons and you understand them.
I don't know Putin, have no deals in Russia, and the haters are going crazy - yet Obama can make a deal with Iran, #1 in terror, no problem! Freedom, security and justice will prevail. We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism and we will not allow it to take root in our country. We're not going to allow it.
We'll have to, well, de-fund. We give tremendous amounts of money to California. California in many ways is out of control. Obviously the voters agree or otherwise they wouldn't have voted for me.
And, in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to report it. They have their reasons, and you understand that.
We protect those who protect us, and we will never, ever let you down.
The way the show is going now and you look at the kind of work they're doing, who knows how long that show is going to be on. It's a terrible show.
America stands with those who stand in defense of freedom. We have your back every hour, every day, now and always. That also means getting our allies to pay their fair share but a very unfair (share) to us. We strongly support NATO. We only ask that all of the NATO members make their full and proper financial contributions to the NATO alliance which many of them have not been doing.
I think so, yes. And I think before the end of the year I would like to say yes.
You want to be a legitimate president, sir? Then act like one.
Freedom, security and justice will prevail. We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism and we will not allow it to take root in our country. We're not going to allow it.
Freedom, security and justice will prevail. To these forces of death and destruction: America and its allies will defeat you.
I'm going to set up a commission to be headed by Vice President Pence and we're going to look at it very, very carefully.
Well I respect a lot of people but that doesn't mean I'm going to get along with them. He's a leader of his country. I say it's better to get along with Russia than not and if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS which is a major fight and Islamic terrorism all over the world, major fight, that's a good thing. Will I get along with him? I have no idea. It's very possible I won't. A lot of killers. We got a lot of killers. You think our country is so innocent? You think our country is so innocent?
Take a look at what we've done too. We've made a lot of mistakes. I've been against the war in Iraq from the beginning. A lot of mistakes. OK but a lot of people were killed so – a lot of killers around believe me.
I say it's better to get along with Russia than not.
I call my own shots.
What do you think? Our country's so innocent?
Will I get along with him? I have no idea.
It's really a bad situation, it's really bad.
You look at what China's doing, you look at what Japan has done over the years. They play the money market, they play the devaluation market and we sit there like a bunch of dummies.
Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting. I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.
They breed crime, there's a lot of problems.
You have to stick up for your friends, right? Once you've done it, there's a lot less pressure.
Just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. If something happens blame him and court system. People pouring in. Bad!
I would like to say by the end of the year, at least the rudiments, but we should have something within the year and the following year.
He's using your words. When you use the word and he uses them back, it's circular using of the word and that's from you.
The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!
The judge showed no signs of backing down. The judge opens up our country to potential terrorists and others that do not have our best interests at heart. Bad people are very happy!
There are a lot of killers. We've got a lot of killers. What do you think? Our country's so innocent?
We will work with Ukraine, Russia, and all other parties involved to help them restore peace along the border.
What is our country coming to when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into U.S.?
As far as BuzzFeed, which is a failing pile of garbage, writing it, I think they're going to suffer the consequences. They already are.
Japan has made noteworthy contributions to regional security and to the alliance, and the United States deeply appreciates Japan's contributions. But make no mistake: In my meeting with Japanese leaders, both our nations recognize that we must not be found complacent in the face of the challenges we face.
We expect to be cutting a lot out of Dodd-Frank. Frankly, I have so many people, friends of mine, that have nice businesses that can't borrow money. They just can't get any money because the banks won't let them borrow because of rules and regulations in Dodd-Frank.
We have some of the bankers here. There is nobody better to tell me about Dodd-Frank than Jamie [Dimon], so you gonna tell me about it. We expect to be cutting a lot out of Dodd-Frank because, frankly, I have so many people, friends of mine, that have nice businesses, they can't borrow money, they just can't get any money because the banks just won't let them borrow.
Don't believe these phony (employment) numbers. The number is probably 28, 29, as high as 35 (percent). In fact, I even heard recently 42 percent. I think it's going to continue big league.
Nothing is off the table.
And all of this hatred stuff directed toward him – it's not good for him. It's not good.
I haven't eased anything.
We believe the world's best country should have the world's best infrastructure. We will build new roads, and highways, and tunnels and airports and railroads across the nation. We will fix our existing product before we build anything brand new.
Dodd-Frank is a disaster. We're going to be doing a big number on Dodd-Frank. There's nobody better to tell me about Dodd-Frank than Jamie, so you're going to tell me about it.
Great spirit in the country right now. We're very happy about that. We're bringing back jobs, we're bringing down your taxes, we're getting rid of your regulations.
Sometimes I have the impression that the new administration does not know the European Union in detail but in Europe details matter.
A new radical Islamic terrorist has just attacked in Louvre Museum in Paris. Tourists were locked down. France on edge again. Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on the Apprentice ... but at least he tried hard!
Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching!
If people want to come and harass their family or whatever I'll be there with them.
Iran is playing with fire – they don't appreciate how 'kind' President Obama was to them. Not me.
Thank you, @samsung! We would love to have you!
Potential changes in federal Medicaid funding should not erode benefits, eligibility, or coverage compared to current law.
I will get rid of and totally destroy the Johnson Amendment and allow our representatives of faith to speak freely and without fear of retribution.
In the coming days we will develop a system to help ensure that those admitted into our country fully embrace our values of religious and personal liberty and that they reject any form of oppression and discrimination.
I would like to speed it up if possible. You're the folks who can do it. We are working very, very hard and will be very soon, as soon as we get the go-ahead – we have the 90-day period that we have to think about.
We're going to streamline the FDA. We have a fantastic person that I think I we'll be naming fairly soon. He's going to streamline the FDA and you're going to get your products either approved or not approved but it's going to be a quick process. It's not going to take 15 years.
When I ran for president, I had to leave the show. They hired a big, big movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to take my place. And we know how that turned out. The ratings went right down the tubes. I want to just pray for Arnold if we can.
The world is in trouble, but we're going to straighten it out, OK? That's what I do - I fix things. Believe me, when you hear about the tough phone calls I'm having - don't worry about it. Just don't worry about it. We're taken advantage of by every nation in the world virtually. It's not going to happen anymore. All nations have a moral obligation to speak out against such violence. All nations have a duty to work together to confront it, and to confront it viciously, if we have to.
Our nation has the most generous immigration system in the world. There are those who would exploit that generosity to undermine the values that we hold so dear. There are those who would seek to enter our country for the purpose of spreading violence, or oppressing other people based upon their faith or their lifestyle - not right. We will not allow a beachhead of intolerance to spread in our nation.
But you can also say, Why are we doing this?
You have much to contribute to our politics, yet our laws prevent you from speaking your minds from your own pulpits. An amendment, pushed by Lyndon Johnson many years ago, threatens religious institutions with a loss of their tax-exempt status if they openly advocate their political views.
Believe me. When you hear about the tough phone calls I'm having, don't worry about it. Just don't worry about it. They're tough. We have to be tough. It's time we're going to be a little tough folks. We're taking advantage of by every nation in the world virtually. I don't want these people. This is the worst call by far.
I want to just pray for Arnold if we can.
Some people didn't like Rex because he actually got along with leaders of the world. I said, No, that's a good thing. I think he's going to go down as one of the great, great secretaries.
It must be stopped, and it will be stopped. It might not be pretty for a little while.
Do you believe it? The Obama administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia. Why? I will study this dumb deal!
If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view - NO FEDERAL FUNDS? Iran has been formally PUT ON NOTICE for firing a ballistic missile. Iran was on its last legs and ready to collapse until the U.S. came along and gave it a life-line in the form of the Iran Deal: $150 billion.
Jared is such a good kid and he'll make a deal with Israel that no one else can. He's a natural dealmaker - everyone likes him.
I didn't come here to say, Oh, my goodness, if I don't do this, I might not get re-elected.
It is an extraordinary résumé, , as good as it gets.
Iran is rapidly taking over more and more of Iraq even after the U.S. has squandered three trillion dollars there. Obvious long ago!
You have a bunch of bad hombres down there. You aren't doing enough to stop them. I think your military is scared. Our military isn't, so I just might send them down to take care of it. We have some bad hombres here, and we're going to get them out.
If we end up with that gridlock I would say, If you can, Mitch, go nuclear.
As the owner of the club, I do not want them to utilize the club nor do I want their dues.
During this month, we honor the tremendous history of the African-Americans throughout our country, throughout the world if you really think about it, right? And this story's one of unimaginable sacrifice, hard work and faith in America. I'm proud to honor this heritage and will be honoring it more and more.
Depending on their age, a justice can be active for 50 years, and his or her decisions can last a century or more and can often be permanent.
Everybody is arguing whether or not it is a BAN. Call it what you want, it is about keeping bad people (with bad intentions) out of country!
I had a very bad experience.
Every other country lives on devaluation. You look at what China's doing, you look at what Japan has done over the years. ... They play the money market, they play the devaluation market and we sit there like a bunch of dummies.
The justices that I'm going to appoint will be pro-life. They will have a conservative bent. They will be protecting the Second Amendment. They are great scholars in all cases, and they're people of tremendous respect. They will interpret the Constitution the way the founders wanted it interpreted. And I believe that's very, very important.
It was never even touched. So I think it was a disgrace, but that's the way the press is.
A lot of the media is actually the opposition party. They're so biased. It's a disgrace.
We get practically nothing compared to the cost of this. Why are we doing this?
You're going to get your prices either approved, or not approved. But it's going to be a quick process. It's not going to take 15 years.
Judge Gorsuch has outstanding legal skills, a brilliant mind, tremendous discipline and has earned bipartisan support.
Brexit's going to be a wonderful thing for your country.
I'm not going to let that happen.
When you get these terrorists you have to take out their families.
Nancy Pelosi and Fake Tears Chuck Schumer held a rally at the steps of The Supreme Court and mic did not work (a mess)-just like Dem party!
We have to get the prices way down.
This is a president who does not have respect for the rule of the law. That's something that bothers a lot of people.
The U.S. drug companies have produced extraordinary results for our country, but the prices have been astronomical for our country.
You know that I am not a person who breaks promises.
They should be ashamed of themselves!
We cut approximately $600 million off the F-35 fighter, and that only amounts to 90 planes out of close to 3,000 planes.
These are big pipes. Now, the only way I can imagine they [ship them] is they must have to cut them. Because they're so big, I can't imagine – they take up so much room – I can't imagine you could put that much pipe on ships. It's not enough. It's not long enough.
So I assume they have to fabricate and cut, which hurts the pipe, by the way.
The Democrats are delaying my cabinet picks for purely political reasons. They have nothing going but to obstruct.
This is not about religion. This is about terror and keeping our country safe. There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim that are not affected by this order.
Only 109 people out of 325,000 were detained and held for questioning. Big problems at airports were caused by Delta computer outage. If the ban were announced with a one week notice, the 'bad' would rush into our country during that week. A lot of bad 'dudes' out there!
The seven countries named in the Executive Order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama administration as sources of terror.
They've been horribly treated. Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible, at least very tough to get into the United States? If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible and the reason that was so unfair, everybody was persecuted in all fairness, but they were chopping off the heads of everybody but more so the Christians. And I thought it was very, very unfair. So we are going to help them.
To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting. This is not about religion – this is about terror and keeping our country safe. There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim that are not affected by this order.
If the ban were announced with a one week notice, the 'bad' would rush into our country during that week.
I noticed Chuck Schumer yesterday with fake tears - I'm going to ask him who was his acting coach, because I know him very well. I don't see him as a crier.
We're cutting regulations massively for small business, and for large business. But they're different.
America is a proud nation of immigrants and we will continue to show compassion to those fleeing oppression, but we will do so while protecting our own citizens and border. This is not about religion – this is about terror and keeping our country safe. . I have tremendous feeling for the people involved in this horrific humanitarian crisis in Syria. My first priority will always be to protect and serve our country, but as President I will find ways to help those who are suffering.
I have made my decision on who I will nominate for The United States Supreme Court. It will be announced live on Tuesday at 8:00 P.M. (W.H.).
Only 109 people out of 325,000 were detained and held for questioning. Big problems at airports were caused by Delta computer outage ... protesters and the tears of Senator (Chuck) Schumer. Secretary Kelly said that all is going well with very few problems. MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN!
America is a proud nation of immigrants.
We will again be issuing visas to all countries once we are sure we have reviewed and implemented the most secure policies over the next 90 days.
I want to take the opportunity to make it unequivocally clear that our position has always been, and remains so now and at all times, that the US embassy should be here, in Jerusalem.
Americans are saddened this morning with news that a life of a heroic service member has been taken in our fight against the evil of radical Islamic terrorism.
Our country needs strong borders and extreme vetting, NOW. Look what is happening all over Europe and, indeed, the world - a horrible mess!
Most of the people standing behind me will not be able to go to work.
It's working out very nicely. We're going to have a very, very strict ban and we're going to have extreme vetting, which we should have had in this country for many years.
So it really is a massive success story in terms of implementation on every single level.
I think it's going to be very successful. That's big stuff.
It's working out very nicely. You see it at the airports, you see it all over.
The United States is responsible for the United States' policy on refugees.
We're gonna come up with a new plan that's going to be better healthcare for more people at a lesser cost.
We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas. We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country and love deeply our people. He has stated publicly that he does not necessarily believe in torture or waterboarding, or however you want to define it. ... I don't necessarily agree. But I would tell you that he will override because I'm giving him that power. He's an expert.
We'll see what happens. As far as the sanctions, very early to be talking about that.
I am a people person. I think you are also, Theresa.
They gave it to a woman who's not done the right thing in Germany. Nice woman, I like her, I like her. I better like her, I may have to deal with her. Look, Putin likes me, I want her to like me too. I have friends, I just left people from Germany and they don't even want to go back. Germany's being destroyed by Merkel's naïveté or worse. But Germany is a whole different place and you're going to have a problem in Germany.
As far as the sanctions, very early to be talking about that. But, we look to have a great relationship with all countries, ideally. That won't necessarily happen… But if we can have a great relationship with Russia and with China and with all the other countries, I'm all for that. That would be a tremendous asset. No guarantees, but if we can, that would be a positive, not a negative.
I happened to be in Scotland… cutting a ribbon, when Brexit happened. I said- this was the day before, you probably remember- 'Brexit is going to happen' and I was scorned in the press for making that prediction.
It's something that I have the right to do. It's something I can impose if I want. So I'm not against something like that but with respect to Mexico, something else could happen which would be much more positive for both Mexico and the United States.
It sends a message that if we work through this trade agreement, that golf course is going to be pretty important.
We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas. We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country and love deeply our people. He has stated publicly that he does not necessarily believe in torture or waterboarding, or however you want to define it. ... I don't necessarily agree. But I would tell you that he will override because I'm giving him that power. He's an expert. We're no longer going to be the country that doesn't know what it's doing.
Mexico has taken advantage of the U.S. for long enough. Massive trade deficits & little help on the very weak border must change, NOW!
If we can have a great relationship with Russia and with China and with all countries, I'm all for that.
I don't know the gentleman, I hope we have a fantastic relationship. That's possible, and it's also possible that we won't.
We're no longer going to be the country that doesn't know what it's doing.
I think we have a very good relationship, the president and I. We are going to be working on a fair relationship and a good relationship.
We're no longer going to be the country that doesn't know what it's doing. He has stated publicly that he does not necessarily believe in torture or waterboarding, or however you want to define it. ... I don't necessarily agree. But I would tell you that he will override because I'm giving him that power. He's an expert.
A lot of people are gonna be showing up.
He shouldn't be doing it. He won't be doing it. If you get along and if Russia is really helping us, why would anybody have sanctions if somebody's doing some really great things?
Let it be an arms race.
I don't have my commerce secretary. They want to talk trade. So I'll have to handle it myself.
All you have to do is stay.
We're lacking submarines and we're going to build new submarines but the price is too high so I'm cutting the prices way down.
We're working on a tax reform bill that will reduce our trade deficits, increase American exports and will generate revenue from Mexico that will pay for the wall if we decide to go that route.
I think the person I pick will be big, big. I think evangelicals, Christians will love my pick.
I have no idea how they are doing. I don't really care. I'm in a lot of things. I may be in a few funds. I have no idea if they are up or down. I just know that they have been very good over a period of time.
But developing commercial ties strengthens the moderates in Iran. We want to reinforce them to show the population that the deal is good for them because the radicals won't be able to say that they have got nothing from it.
I say, let's put that little clause in, like it's a one-sentence clause, but that clause is going to attract a lot of people, and we're going to make that pipe right here in America, OK?
If people want to build pipelines on our land, we want the pipe to be ... manufactured here, but you will see a level of quality that you're not going to see when they bring the pipe from far distances, have to bring it in small chunks, and then fabricate it on the land. Give me a break. We can do much better than that and we're going to do it much better, and it's going to end up costing less money. Believe me. I was sitting at my desk and I'm getting ready to sign Keystone and Dakota. I say, where's the pipe coming from? And I won't tell you where, but you wouldn't be happy.
I am meeting with the prime minister tomorrow as you know – Great Britain – so I am meeting with her tomorrow, I don't have my commerce secretary… they want to talk trade – so I have to handle it myself which is ok.
Believe me, we're going to have a lot of trade deals. If that particular country doesn't treat us fairly, we send them a 30-day termination, notice of termination.
We're taking them out of a big jam, big jam. We're putting ourselves at risk to a certain extent because we're taking it off their platter. But I think, congressmen, I think we have no choice ... We have to get it going. I'm serious if we waited two years it's going to explode like you've never seen an explosion ... That's politically what we should do but we don't want to do that.
Philadelphia's murder rate has been "terribly increasing.
Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!
We're working on a tax reform bill that will reduce our trade deficit, increase American exports and will generate revenue from Mexico that will pay for the wall, if we decide to go that route. I will not allow the citizens or the taxpayers of the United States to pay the cost of this defective transaction, NAFTA, one that should have been renegotiated many years ago, except that the politicians were too preoccupied to do so.
Does torture work? And the answer was 'Yes, absolutely.
And I said a long time ago that NATO had problems. Number one: it was obsolete because it was designed many many years ago. Number two: the countries weren't paying what they're supposed to pay.
We will be starting negotiations having to do with NAFTA. We are going to start renegotiating on NAFTA, on immigration and on security at the border.
Ungrateful TRAITOR Chelsea Manning, who should never have been released from prison, is now calling President Obama a weak leader. Terrible!
The U.S. has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico. It has been a one-sided deal from the beginning of NAFTA with massive numbers.... If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting.
If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting.
I think that Europe has made a tremendous mistake by allowing these millions of people to go into Germany and various other countries.
From this day forward, it's going to be only America first.
If TPP were to be implemented, Japanese carmakers such as Toyota and Honda could have benefited, based on the current tariff of 2.5 percent imposed on exports.
I want to thank the Secret Service, they don't get enough credit, they're amazing people.
You have people registered in two states. They're registered in a New York and a New Jersey. They vote twice. There are millions of votes, in my opinion. Of those votes cast, none of them come to me. None of them come to me.
Amazon is getting away with murder, tax-wise.
We hear you, we see you and you will never ever be ignored again. They have to stop it. We have to stop it. We are going to save lives on both sides of the border.
We have to fight fire with fire. Does torture work? And the answer was yes, absolutely.
I will build a great, great wall on our southern border and I will have Mexico pay for that wall, mark my words.
We will not accept any renegotiation of the free trade agreement. There is always the possibility of abandoning the treaty, and then governing the commerce between the United States and Mexico with the rules established by the World Trade Organization.
We're going to start renegotiating on NAFTA, on immigration, and on security at the border. And Mexico has been terrific, actually terrific. And the president has been a really very amazing. And I think we're going to have a very good result for Mexico, for the United States, and for everybody involved.
We've been talking about this right from the beginning.
There will be a payment; it will be in a form, perhaps a complicated form.
There will be a payment, it will be in a form, perhaps a complicated form.
The products of the territory of any contracting party imported into the territory of any other contracting party shall be accorded treatment no less favorable than that accorded to like products of national origin in respect of all laws, regulations and requirements affecting their internal sale, offering for sale, purchase, transportation, distribution or use.
I will be making my Supreme Court pick on Thursday of next week. Thank you. Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures.
If Chicago doesn't fix the horrible 'carnage' going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds! This American carnage stops right here and stops right now. If Mayor can't do it he must ask for Federal help!
The murder rate in the United States is the largest it's been in 45 years.
We will build our own pipeline. We will build our own pipes, as we used to in the old days.
Sometimes it takes many, many years and we don't want that to happen. If it's a 'no,' we'll get a quick 'no.' If it's a 'yes,' it's like, let's start building.
I am to a large extent an environmentalist, I believe in it, but it's out of control. And we're going to make a very short process, and we are either going to give you your permits or we're not going to give you your permits but you're going to know very quickly. And generally speaking we're going to be giving you your permits. So we're going to be very friendly.
We are bringing manufacturing back to the US, big league, we are reducing taxes very substantially and we are reducing unnecessary regulations. We want regulations, but we want real regulations, that mean something. We're going to make the process much more simple for the auto companies and for everybody else that wants to do business in the US. I think you gonna find this to be [we will go] from very inhospitable to extremely hospitable.
To begin with, the whole push for renewable energy is being driven by the wrong motivation, the mistaken belief that global climate change is being caused by carbon emissions. If you don't buy that – and I don't – then what we have is really just an expensive way of making the tree-huggers feel good about themselves.
We have a very big push on to have auto plants and other plants. I want new plants to be built here for cars sold here!
A photo delivered yesterday that will be displayed in the upper/lower press hall. Thank you Abbas! Let's start building. We have some outstanding candidates. And we'll pick a truly great Supreme Court justice.
We're going to approve energy infrastructure projects like the Keystone pipeline and many more.
We will pick a truly great Supreme Court justice. Sometime next week. Probably making my decision this week, we'll be announcing next week. We have outstanding candidates. I think the people of this country did not want to see what was happening with the Supreme Court, so I think it was a very, very big decision as to why I was elected.
From now we are going to start making pipelines in the United States.
We're going to put a lot of people back to work; we're going to use common sense.
We are going to have trade, but we're going to have one on one. And if somebody misbehaves, we'll send them a letter of termination. 30 days and they will either straighten it out or we're gone.
We are going to renegotiate some of the terms. And if they like we will see if we can get that pipeline built - a lot of jobs, 28,000 jobs, great construction jobs. We are very insistent that if we are going to build pipelines in the United States, the pipes should be built in the United States.
We are going to be imposing a very major border tax on the product when it comes in. We think we can cut regulations by 75 percent. Maybe more. When you want to expand your plant, or when Mark wants to come in and build a big massive plant, or when Dell wants to come in and do something monstrous and special – you're going to have your approvals really fast.
A company that wants to fire all of its people in the United States, and build some factory someplace else, and then thinks that that product is going to just flow across the border into the United States - that's not going to happen.
This is a group I know well.
If that happens, we are going to be imposing a very major border tax on the products when it comes in.
As you know, I have a no-conflict situation because I'm president, which is – I didn't know about that until about three months ago, but it's a nice thing to have.
We will be cutting regulation massively. We are gonna have regulation and it will be just as strong and just as good and just as protective of the people as the regulation we have right now: The problem that we have with the regulation we have right now is that you can't do anything.
No Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust ... shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.
Heather Wilson is going to make an outstanding secretary of the Air Force.
What we want to do is bring manufacturing back to our country ... That doesn't mean we don't trade because we do trade. We want to make our products here.
I have a running war with the media. They are among the most dishonest human beings on Earth. And they sort of made it sound like I had a feud with the intelligence community. It looked like a million and a half people. Whatever it was, it was. But it went all the way back to the Washington Monument.
Busy week planned with a heavy focus on jobs and national security. Top executives coming in at 9:00 A.M. to talk manufacturing in America.
We're going to start some negotiations having to do with NAFTA.
Great thing for the American worker. We are going to be imposing a very major border tax on the product when it comes in. We think we can cut regulations by 75 percent. Maybe more. When you want to expand your plant, or when Mark wants to come in and build a big massive plant, or when Dell wants to come in and do something monstrous and special - you're going to have your approvals really fast.
But with the faith in each other and the faith in God, we will get the job done. We will prove worthy of this moment in history. And I think it may very well be a great moment in history.
Tornadoes were vicious and powerful and strong, and they suffered greatly. So we'll be helping out the state of Georgia.
It's time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers never forget, that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots. We all enjoy the same glorious freedoms.
Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy.
Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn't these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly.
We have to get rid of ISIS we have no choice. Radical Islamic terrorism. And I said it yesterday, it has to be erradicated just off the face of the earth. This is evil, this is evil.
I am with you 1, 000 percent.
January 20, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.
I am so behind you, and I know that maybe you haven't gotten the backing that you've wanted. You're going to get so much back ... You'll say, Please, Mr. President, please don't give us so much backing.'.
We had it looked like a million and a half people. Whatever it was, it was – but it looked like it went all the way back to the National Monument.
I am honered to serve you, the great American People, as your 45th President of the United States!
The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.
This is a movement and now the work begins.
This American carnage stops right here.
People that weren't so nice to me were saying that we did a really good job today.
It was busy but good – a beautiful day.
I call on members of the Senate to fulfill their constitutional obligation and swiftly confirm the remainder of my highly qualified cabinet nominees, so that we can get to work on behalf of the American people without further delay.
If I'm doing a movie, I'd pick you, Gen. Mattis.
Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs.
I can only tell you this, the polls started going up, up, up, but they didn't want to give us credit because they forgot about a lot of us. Well, you're not forgotten anymore.
We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones, and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.
Remember the old days? A deserter, what happened?
Today's ceremony has very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one president to another or from party to another.
When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.
That all changes starting right here and right now.
The "carnage stops right here and right now.
I'd be the last one to use them.
Keep the illegals out.
We have a lot of smart people. I tell you what, one thing we've learned, we have by far the highest IQ of any Cabinet ever assembled.
If you provide true medical differentiation coupled with a strong intellectual property position, I think the U.S. will continue to reward this kind of innovation. If you don't offer that then, frankly, I think it is the right thing that prices should come down.
It's going to probably be very difficult to issue legislation on drug pricing.
Clearly, the industry has an obligation to deliver value-creating innovation and it needs to price it at a level that is deemed to be acceptable.
The tweets will be what they will be, but the subject matter of the tweets has been a challenge before the election and I think it will remain a challenge after the election.
I think we are in good position to prove the value of our products but, of course, there will be challenges.
It's very difficult to understand what all those comments and tweets will end up being.
Pricing will remain a challenging issue for those of us who are in the research-based pharmaceutical industry, as well as a challenge for the overall healthcare system in terms of what it can afford.
The new administration has been pretty vocal about supporting innovation. They understand that when you spend money on research and you develop intellectual property there needs to be some level of return for that investment. I believe, based on who the president-elect has put in place around him, that there is a clear understanding of investment and return on investment.
Industry has to price in an empathetic way. Just because you can demonstrate value doesn't mean it is affordable.
I'm cautiously optimistic but at the same time... realistic that we have events and we need to be able to react to those events.
I will see you at 11:00 A.M. for the swearing-in. THE MOVEMENT CONTINUES - THE WORK BEGINS!
I would talk to them first.
We can't continue to allow China to rape our country, and that's what they're doing.
I don't care, frankly, if it's going to be beautiful, or if it's going to rain like crazy. Makes no difference to me. I have a feeling it's going to be beautiful. You're going to cheer me on, but I'm going to be cheering you on because what we've done is so special. All over the world, they're talking about it. All over the world.
Justice Roberts turned out to be an absolute disaster.
What he did with Obamacare was disgraceful, and I think he did that because he wanted to be popular inside the Beltway.
Might be a mess, but they're going to see that it's my real hair.
I think I outworked anybody who ever ran for office.
From growing up on a farm to being governor of a big agriculture state, he has spent his whole life understanding and solving the challenges our farmers face, and he is going to deliver big results for all Americans who earn their living off the land.
A lot of people didn't give us much of a chance.
Let it be an arms race. We will outmatch them at every pass and outlast them all.
I just want to let the world know we're doing very well together.
And when the arc of progress seems slow, remember: America is not the project of any one person.
They say it's not presidential to call up these massive leaders of business.
I think it's very presidential. And if it's not presidential, that's OK. That's OK. Because I actually like doing it.
Honoring the U.S. debt is the most important thing.
They've taken our jobs out of Pennsylvania. We're going to be bringing them back, folks. Believe me.
That's going to hurt I would say mostly the United States.
Because of what's happening and the spirit and the hope, I was just called by the head people at Sprint and they're going to be bringing 5,000 jobs back to the United States and taking them from other countries.
Hopefully we're going to get a million people. We're going to really make a big statement.
So when people misrepresent me, because the press is very dishonest, unbelievably dishonest, and when people misrepresent me, ... I have at least a way of saying it's a false statement. Now if the press were honest – which it's not – I would absolutely not use Twitter. I wouldn't have to.
Like, for instance, when John Lewis said, you know, he's never done it before where he skipped an inauguration. Well, he has. It turned out to be a lie. So I'm able to say that.
But I get very dishonest media, very dishonest press and it's my only way that I can counteract.
They're politically protected, but not anymore.
The system is horizontal it applies to everybody, the system that is perceived to be fair to someone, isn't fair to someone else. That's the beauty of negotiations at a multilateral level - you try to strike a balance - the balance is never perfect for anyone.
We have so many people that want to go in so we'll have to just have to pick the people to go into the room - I'm sure other people will be thrilled about that. But we offered a much larger room because we need a much larger room and we offered to do that, but they went crazy.
The press went crazy, so I said, Let's not move it.' But some people in the press will not be able to get in.
Oh, that's sad to look at that. I want to buy it. I want to buy it.
They were willing to send their young people to Afghanistan to fight, not because they were attacked, but because we were attacked. And we should never forget that.
Our companies can't compete with them now because our currency is too strong. And it's killing us.
The same people who did the phony election polls, and were so wrong, are now doing approval rating polls. They are rigged just like before.
WRONG (or lie!). He boycotted Bush 43 also because he 'thought it would be hypocritical to attend Bush's swearing-in....he doesn't believe Bush is the true elected president.' Sound familiar!
Anytime I hear border adjustment, I don't love it. Because usually it means we're going to get adjusted into a bad deal.
There are people who have given a lot of their lives to fight for the communities that have been consistently under attack whether it's under a democratic or republican administration. To deride or dismiss people who are fighting for a better world is the height of cynicism.
We have hundreds of billions of dollars of losses on a yearly basis – hundreds of billions with China on trade and trade imbalance. We don't make good deals anymore.
We should not develop a habit of retreating to the harbor whenever encountering the storm, for this will never get us to the other shore of the ocean.
This is the biggest challenge in the world today.
Let's wait and see what happens. Don't let's jump ahead of ourselves. I want to be prudent. He won't be worse than Obama, that's all I dare say. Obama has left the world plagued by terrorism. In Latin America, he will be remembered for three coups.
I think it's tougher than he thought.
If you want to build cars in the world, then I wish you all the best. You can build cars for the United States, but for every car that comes to the USA, you will pay 35 percent tax.
We're going to work very hard to get it done quickly and done properly.
I believe others will leave ... I do think keeping it together is not gonna be as easy as a lot of people think.
When you think that you're 46 million there, I'd rather just let that build up and just keep it @realDonaldTrump, it's working.
I think Brexit's going to end up being the great thing. And I predicted it – but the heat I took was unbelievable. And I said – it's because people don't wanna have other people coming in and destroying their country. I thought the UK was so smart in getting out.
I have great respect for her (Merkel), I felt she was a great great leader. I think she made one very catastrophic mistake – and that was taking all of these illegals, taking all of the people wherever they come from – and nobody really knows where they come from.
For one thing, I think nuclear weapons should be way down and reduced very substantially, that's part of it.
The Congress can't get cold feet because the people will not let that happen.
Was this the leaker of Fake News?
We're going to have insurance for everybody. There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can't pay for it, you don't get it. That's not going to happen with us.
We are moving into an era where a lot of people get their information through tweets and soundbites and some headline that comes over their phone. There's a power in that. There's also a danger – what generates a headline or stirs up a controversy and gets attention isn't the same as the process required to actually solve the problem.
If they [EU countries] hadn't been forced to take in all of the refugees, so many, with all the problems that it .. . entails, I think that you wouldn't have a Brexit. I think people want ... their own identity, so if you ask me ... I believe others will leave.
