Nov 04 2017

The American people voted to elect an outsider who is capable of implementing real, positive, and needed change – instead of a lifelong politician beholden to special interests. If they were interested in continuing decades of costly mistakes, another establishment politician more concerned with putting politics over people would have won.feedback

Nov 03 2017

The mere suggestion is an affront to Chair Yellen. The president chose a highly qualified nominee, and has expressed only the utmost respect for her service.feedback

Look, the point he was making is that he supports, or would support that, but he wasn't necessarily advocating for it.feedback

Nov 01 2017

That's not what he said. He said that process has people calling us a joke and a laughing stock. Particularly for someone to be a known terrorist, that process should move faster. That's the point [Trump] is making. That's the frustration he has.feedback

Nov 01 2017

This is something that, frankly, the president has been talking about for a long time. This isn't a new policy. This isn't a new position. This isn't a new conversation.feedback

Nov 01 2017

General Kelly was simply making the point that just because history isn't perfect doesn't mean it's not our history.feedback

Nov 01 2017

There's a time and place for political debate, but now is a time to unite as a country.feedback

Oct 31 2017

My thoughts are with the victims of today's horrific attack in Manhattan and their loved ones.feedback

Oct 31 2017

Our approach has been to be cooperative and responsive and to see this come to a quick conclusion. Have we been aggressive in our comments and our feelings towards the Clinton campaign and the DNC? Yes. But that's where our aggression is seen and nowhere else.feedback

Oct 31 2017

The media continue to want to make this and push that this is somehow a racially charged and divided White House.feedback

I'm not aware that any change would be necessary at this time.feedback

Oct 31 2017

There is clear evidence of the Clinton campaign colluding to smear the president and influence the election.feedback

Because you don't like history doesn't mean that you can erase it and pretend that it didn't happen.feedback

It was extremely limited. It was a volunteer position.feedback

Oct 30 2017

Oct 30 2017

The nine reporters yelled at the tenth and made him feel bad. So the next night the tenth man didn't show up for drinks, and the nine sat down and had their beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They no longer had enough money between them all to even cover half of the bill.feedback

Oct 30 2017

The 10 reporters drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement. Since you're all such good customers, I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20.feedback

Oct 30 2017

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how our tax system works. The people who already pay the highest taxes will naturally benefit from a tax reduction, but not the largest percent benefit. Taxing them too much – attack them – and they might start drinking overseas, where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.feedback

Oct 30 2017

I haven't had any conversations with him about that. I think we should let the process play through before we start looking at those steps.feedback

Oct 26 2017

The President has demanded unprecedented transparency from the agencies and directed them to minimize redactions without delay. The National Archives will therefore release more records, with redactions only in the rarest of circumstances, by the deadline of April 26, 2018.feedback

Oct 26 2017

He gave his account of what took place.feedback

Oct 25 2017 - Trump Presidency

This is obviously a growing epidemic that the president is very committed to fighting against. He has been working with his policy advisers and his team diligently, and all of the relevant components and agencies.feedback

Oct 25 2017

The president is taking that decision very seriously.feedback

Oct 24 2017

The rule would harm our community banks and credit unions by opening the door to frivolous lawsuits by special interest trial lawyers.feedback

Oct 24 2017 - Trump Presidency

The real Russia scandal? Clinton campaign paid for the fake Russia dossier, then lied about it & covered it up.feedback

Oct 24 2017 - Trump Presidency

Corker "was probably just trying to get a headline on his way out the door.feedback

Oct 24 2017 - Trump Presidency

Imagine how incredible and how many good things we would be doing, if people like Senator Bob Corker got on board and started doing their job instead of doing so much grandstanding on TV.feedback

Oct 24 2017 - Trump Presidency

Those are certainly individuals that he's looking at. The president is taking that decision extremely seriously, and he's being very thorough in the process, and he'll have an announcement on it soon. He's talking to a lot of relevant stakeholders and individuals about this.feedback

Oct 24 2017

If you want to get into a debate with a four-star Marine general, I think that's something highly inappropriate.feedback

Oct 23 2017 - Trump Presidency

General Kelly said he was 'stunned' that Representative Wilson made comments at a building dedication honoring slain F.B.I. agents about her own actions in Congress, including lobbying former President Obama on legislation. As General Kelly pointed out, if you're able to make a sacred act like honoring American heroes about yourself, you're an empty barrel.feedback

Oct 22 2017 - Trump Presidency

He wants to lower premiums. He wants to provide greater flexibility. He wants to drive competition. He likes the idea of block grants to states.feedback

Oct 21 2017

Our understanding is that those comments were not directed towards the president.feedback

Oct 20 2017

I think [Kelly] addressed that pretty thoroughly yesterday.feedback

Oct 18 2017

The sentiment of the president was very clear. He took the time to make a call to express his condolences and to thank the family for this individual's service.feedback

Oct 18 2017

I think General Kelly is disgusted by the way that this has been politicized and that the focus has become on the process and not the fact that American lives were lost. I think he's disgusted and frustrated by that. And if he has any anger it's towards that.feedback

Oct 18 2017

He thought it was respectful and he thought the president did the best that he could under the circumstances to offer condolences on behalf of the country. Just because the president said 'your guy,' I don't think he didn't know his name. He said the hardest job he has is making calls like that.feedback

Oct 18 2017 - Trump Presidency

President Trump spoke to all four of the families of those who were killed in action in Niger. He offered condolences on behalf of a grateful nation and assured them their family's extraordinary sacrifice to the country will never be forgotten.feedback

Oct 18 2017

We've said all along that we want something that doesn't just bail out the insurance companies but actually provides relief for all Americans. This bill doesn't address that fact.feedback

Oct 18 2017 - Trump Presidency

Just because the president said 'your guy,' I don't think that means he doesn't know his name.feedback

Oct 16 2017

Obviously, any time one of the members of our great military are injured, wounded or killed in action, that is something we take very seriously . . . We're continuing to review and look into this.feedback

Oct 16 2017 - American politics

They're on another vacation right now. I think that we would all be a lot better off if the Senate would stop taking vacations, and start staying here until we actually get some real things accomplished.feedback

Oct 16 2017 - Trump Presidency

The President's travel will underscore his commitment to long-standing United States alliances and partnerships, and reaffirm United States leadership in promoting a free and open Indo-Pacific region.feedback

Oct 12 2017

The president has repeatedly said he doesn't care about his business, he cares about the country. The president's position on athletes standing for the National Anthem is about respecting the flag and the men and women of the military who sacrifice to defend it and nothing else.feedback

Oct 12 2017

A lot of times you have opinions that are being presented as news, and they're not.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - Iran

Sen. Corker worked with Nancy Pelosi and the Obama administration to pave the way for that legislation and basically rolled out the red carpet for the Iran deal, and those are pretty factual.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - Iran

He worked with them on that INARA legislation that rolled that out. That's what helped, I think, put things in motion. He may have voted against the deal ultimately, but he not only allowed the deal to happen, he gave it credibility.feedback

Oct 10 2017

That's what he's talking about, we are the highest corporate taxed country in the developed economies across the globe.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - Trump Presidency

We would certainly support the NFL coming out and asking players to stand, just as the president has done. We support the national anthem, the flag and the men and women who fought to defend it, and our position hasn't changed on that front. We're glad to see the NFL taking positive steps in that direction.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - Trump Presidency

Maybe you guys should get a sense of humor and try it sometime.feedback

Oct 09 2017

We see a problem with any stories that are inaccurate or untruthful being presented to the American people as facts.feedback

Oct 08 2017 - North Korea

I wouldn't say that he's messing with the press. I think that North Korea, Iran both continue to be bad actors.feedback

Oct 07 2017

The President believes that the freedom to practice one's faith is a fundamental right in this country, and I think all of us do. And that's all that today was about. Our federal government should always protect that right. And as long as Donald Trump is president, he will.feedback

Oct 06 2017

I think you can take the president protecting the American people always extremely serious. He's been very clear that that's his number one priority.feedback

Oct 06 2017

He certainly doesn't want to lay out his game plan for our enemies. So if you're asking, is the president trying to do that? Absolutely. I mean, I don't think that's a secret.feedback

Oct 06 2017

There's a process for how to deal with Puerto Rico's debt. It will have to go through that process to have a lasting recovery and growth. This is a process that was put in place and set up under Obama. The president wants it to go through that process, and that's the stage we're at on that.feedback

Oct 06 2017 - Iran

That's what his team is focused on and that's what he'll be rolling out to address that as a whole in the coming days.feedback

Oct 05 2017

We would look at taking any step we could to prevent something like this from happening again. We want to be a part of the conversation moving forward.feedback

Oct 03 2017

What these people did for each other says far more about who we are as Americans than the cowardly acts of a killer ever could.feedback

Oct 03 2017

He saved my life. I want everyone to know what a kindhearted, loving man he was, but at this point, I can barely breathe.feedback

Oct 03 2017

The memories of those who displayed the ultimate expression of love in the midst of an unmanageable act of hate will never fade.feedback

Oct 02 2017

There's a time and place for a political debate, but now is the time to unite as a country. There will be certainly time for that policy discussion to take place, but that's not the place that we're in at this moment.feedback

Oct 02 2017

We are monitoring the situation closely and offer our full support to state and local officials. All of those affected are in our thoughts and prayers.feedback

Oct 02 2017

When the bullets began raining down from above, Sonny shielded her from danger, selflessly giving up his life to save hers.feedback

Sep 30 2017

We have the votes on the substance but not necessarily on the process, which is why we're still confident that we can move health care forward and get it done in the spring.feedback

Sep 28 2017 - Republican Party

I know where the president stands on specific issues, and I don't see any parallels on that front.feedback

Sep 28 2017

At @ricardorossello request, @POTUS has authorized the Jones Act be waived for Puerto Rico. It will go into effect immediately.feedback

Sep 26 2017 - North Korea

We have not declared war on North Korea and, frankly, the suggestion of that is absurd.feedback

Sep 26 2017

All White House personnel have been instructed to use official email to conduct all government related work. They are further instructed that if they receive work-related communication on personal accounts, they should be forwarded to official email accounts.feedback

Sep 26 2017 - Immigration

We will be putting out specific principles that the White House supports and would like to see done legislatively.feedback

Sep 25 2017

I think it's always appropriate for the president of the United States to defend our flag, to defend our national anthem and to defend the men and women who fought and died to defend it.feedback

Sep 25 2017

If the debate is really for them about police brutality, they should protest the officers on the field that are protecting them instead of the American flag.feedback

Sep 25 2017

The federal response has been anything but slow. In fact, there has been an unprecedented push through of billions of dollars in federal assistance.feedback

Sep 25 2017 - Obamacare

We know we can't live with the Obamacare status quo. It's a complete disaster.feedback

Sep 18 2017

If you want to see chaos, come to my house with three preschoolers. This doesn't hold a candle to that. Just to be clear, that's not an open invitation to come to my house. But if you guys want to schedule babysitting time, I'll be happy to work that out.feedback

Sep 18 2017

You've got a guy who really wants to do more to help working moms and working women, and I don't think there's any better example that he could show than empowering the ones within his own administration.feedback

Sep 18 2017

I spend a lot of time around the president, and I've never felt anything but respected and empowered by him to do my job. Can he be tough? Yes. But he's equally tough on men. People want to say 'Oh, he's tough on women' – no, he's tough on everybody.feedback

Sep 18 2017 - Trump Presidency

When the president gets hit, he's going to hit back harder.feedback

Sep 17 2017 - Facebook

I don't have anything for us to wade in on a private company.feedback

Sep 16 2017

There has been no change in the United States' position on the Paris agreement. As the president has made abundantly clear, the United States is withdrawing unless we can re-enter on terms that are more favourable to our country.feedback

Sep 15 2017 - Trumpcare

I can't think of anything worse than having government more involved in your healthcare.feedback

Sep 14 2017 - Deportation

While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to.feedback

Sep 14 2017

I think if there's ever a moment where we feel someone's broken the law, particularly if they're the head of the F.B.I., I think that's something that certainly should be looked at.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Trump Presidency

The memos that Comey leaked were created on an FBI computer while he was the director. He claims they were private property but they clearly followed the protocol of an official FBI document. Leaking FBI memos on a sensitive case, regardless of classification, violates federal laws, including the Privacy Act, standard FBI employment agreement and nondisclosure agreement all personnel must sign. I think that's pretty clean and clear that that would be a violation.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Trump Presidency

The Department of Justice has to look into any allegations of ... whether or not something's illegal or not. That's not up to me to decide. What I've said and what I'm talking about are facts. James Comey – leaking of information, questionable statements under oath, politicizing an investigation. Those are real reasons for why he was fired, and the president's decision was 100 percent right.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Republican Party

The president is the leader of the Republican Party and was elected by Republicans. He beat out 16 other candidates to take that mantle on. And certainly I think one of the strongest voices. And so the idea that the Republican Party ideas are not represented in that room is just ridiculous.feedback

Sep 13 2017

I think there is no secret Comey, by his own self-admission, leaked privileged government information. His actions were improper and likely could have been illegal. That's not the President's role. That's the job of the Department of Justice, and something they should certainly look at. I'm not here to ever direct DOJ into actions that they should take.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Turkey

That is one of the more outrageous comments that anyone could make and certainly is something that is a fireable offence by ESPN. I'm not going to speak for that individual but I know that the president has met again with people like Senator Scott who are highly respected leaders in the African American community. He's committed to working with them to bring the country together. I think that's where we need to be focused; not on outrageous statements like that one.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Trump Presidency

I don't tweet a lot about politics. I do tweet more about social issues, which I consider to be issues of morality. Racism isn't politics. Racism is an issue of right and wrong.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Refugees

The massive displacement and victimisation of people, including large numbers of the ethnic Rohingya community and other minorities, shows that Burmese security forces are not protecting civilians.feedback

Sep 11 2017

Steve always likes to speak in the most extreme measures, and I'm not sure that I agree with that. The administration has been clear, we're hoping Congress will step up and address [DACA] with comprehensive immigration reform. We're happy to answer any questions you might have.feedback

Sep 11 2017 - Trump Presidency

It's been shown in the days that followed that the president was right in firing Director Comey. Since his firing, we've learned new information about his conduct that only provided more justification for that firing, including giving false testimony, leaking privileged information to journalists, [and] he went outside the chain of command and politicized an investigation into a presidential candidate.feedback

Sep 11 2017 - Trump Presidency

The president was right in firing Director Comey. I think that Steve always likes to speak in, kind of, the most extreme measures.feedback

Sep 11 2017

I think we may be answering more questions on Steve Bannon, now that he's not here, than when he was. But go ahead.feedback

Sep 11 2017

I know he has seen clips of it, but I don't know that he watched the entire thing.feedback

Sep 09 2017 - Immigration

The goal is that Congress makes a permanent fix and that Congress actually does their job, and that we have responsible immigration reform that takes place over these six months.feedback

Sep 08 2017 - Trump Presidency

The president is committed to working across the aisle and doing what is needed to best serve the American people.feedback

Sep 07 2017 - Trump Presidency

The President encouraged Congressional leaders to find a more permanent solution to the debt ceiling so the vote is not so frequently politicized.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - North Korea

Now is not the time for us to spend a lot of time focused on talking with North Korea, but putting all measures of pressure that we can. And we're going to continue through that process.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - Republican Party

If Congress doesn't want to do the job they were elected to do, maybe they should get out of the way and let someone else do it.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - Immigration

I don't think the president's been shy about the fact that he wants a wall, and certainly something he feels is an important part of a responsible immigration package.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - Immigration

The president wants to see responsible immigration reform, and he wants that to be part of it. But again, we can't take a one-piece fix. We've got to do an overall immigration reform that's responsible, and frankly, that's lawful.feedback

Sep 03 2017

The national security team is monitoring this closely. The president and his national security team will have a meeting to discuss further later today. We will provide updates as necessary.feedback

Sep 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

The president's very much committed to building the wall.feedback

Sep 01 2017

He'd love some suggestions from the folks here and I'd be happy to take those if any of you have them. But as I said, he'll pledge proudly a million dollars of his own personal money to help the people of both Texas and Louisiana.feedback

Sep 01 2017

If they were there, it would be dangerous and they have to keep an eye on it and take it seriously, but for right now the people don't seem to be there, so a tree falling in the woods, if you will.feedback

Aug 31 2017

As I said, he'll pledge probably $1 million of his own personal money to help the people of both Texas and Louisiana.feedback

Aug 31 2017 - Trump Presidency

He would like to join in the efforts that a lot of the people that we've seen across this country do.feedback

Aug 30 2017 - United Nations

We believe in free press and think it is an important part of our democracy, but the press also has a big responsibility to the American people to be truthful. Their job is to report the news, not create it. Is it not 'dangerous' for the media, to create false narratives and overzealous attacks against the president that the American people chose to be their leader? The president is focused on growing our economy, creating jobs, securing our border and protecting Americans. Since those are also the priorities of most Americans, hopefully the media will make covering them theirs.feedback

Aug 29 2017 - Trump Presidency

That's a big part of what today will be about, the coordination between local, state and federal officials and laying the groundwork for the recovery effort.feedback

Aug 26 2017 - Trump Presidency

It's only natural the president would have a discussion with administration lawyers about legal matters. This case would be no different.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - Trump Presidency

Andy does an incredible job of finding those hidden gems and trying to amplify those positive messages.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - Sanctions

The Maduro dictatorship continues to deprive the Venezuelan people of food and medicine, imprison the democratically-elected opposition, and violently suppress freedom of speech.feedback

Aug 24 2017 - American politics

It's our job to inform Congress of the debt ceiling and it's their job to raise it.feedback

Aug 24 2017 - Mexico

The president's committed to making sure this gets done.feedback

Aug 24 2017 - Trump Presidency

General Kelly is instilling processes to ensure that the president has the information and analysis he needs to make decisions.feedback

Aug 22 2017

There will be no discussion of that today at any point, and no action will be taken on that front at any point today.feedback

Aug 18 2017 - Trump Presidency

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve's last day. We are grateful for his service and wish him the best.feedback

Aug 10 2017 - Trump Presidency

You can see the president's tweets. Obviously there's some frustration. I don't have anything more to add.feedback

Aug 10 2017 - Trump Presidency

Certainly nothing has changed in the president's thinking. He's made clear how he feels on that front.feedback

Aug 10 2017 - Twitter

You can see the president's tweets. Obviously, there's some frustration.feedback

Aug 09 2017

It's very disappointing, yet entirely predictable to learn The New York Times would write off a draft report without first verifying its contents with the White House or any of the federal agencies directly involved with climate and environmental policy. As others have pointed out – and The New York Times should have noticed – drafts of this report have been published and made widely available online months ago during the public comment period. The White House will withhold comment on any draft report before its scheduled release date.feedback

Aug 09 2017

I'm not sure about any potential funding of a campaign. But I think that Sen. Flake would serve his constituents much better if he was less focused on writing a book and attacking the president, and [instead on] passing legislation.feedback

Aug 09 2017

General Kelly and others on the NSC team were well aware of the tone of the statement of the president prior to delivery. The words were his own. The tone and strength of the message were discussed beforehand. They were clear the president was going to respond to North Korea's threats following the sanctions with a strong message in no uncertain terms.feedback

Aug 09 2017

If I spout off talking points, then nobody pays attention. It's my personality. But also, that's how I feel like it's easiest for me to communicate on behalf of the president.feedback

Aug 09 2017

I've toted it with me through a lot of offices now. Yeah, I think for now. We'll see what happens.feedback

Aug 09 2017

I've grown up with the press, in the press. I've never seen the level of hostility that this press corps has to the president.feedback

Aug 09 2017

Certainly I think it's more helpful if we can have a little more calm, back-and-forth dialogue.feedback

Aug 08 2017 - Christianity

I didn't know it was going to be such a controversy. I was like, what has happened in America when a kid writes a very innocent, nice letter and it turns into, like, handwriting specialists and psychologists? Oftentimes, people want to make politicians perfect. And that's one of the actual beauties of Christianity, is understanding that no one is.feedback

Aug 08 2017

We have no two days that are alike, which I love.feedback

Aug 08 2017

But you should see the hundred stories I deal with before going out there. Some of the most outrageous claims with no facts, no sourcing. It's like, an unnamed source close to the White House.' I'm like: 'What does that mean? The guy that works at the coffee shop across the street?' You have to give me more than that.feedback

Aug 08 2017 - Christianity

I certainly didn't approve of a couple of the comments. But at the same time, we were looking for a commander in chief, not a pastor.feedback

Aug 03 2017

One of the most important roles – not just as press secretary but in any position – is to convey honesty and transparency to the American people, and that's the image I'm most focused on. My focus is less on the people in the room and more about the people in America. I try to be relatable and convey the president's message directly to the people across the country.feedback

Aug 02 2017

They were actually direct – they were direct conversations, not actual phone calls. I wouldn't say he lied. That's a pretty bold accusation.feedback

Aug 02 2017

The president had no knowledge of the story and it's completely untrue that he or the White House had involvement in the story.feedback

Aug 02 2017 - Russia

The statement that was issued was true and there were no inaccuracies in the statement.feedback

Aug 02 2017 - North Korea

The president obviously has been very outspoken about how he feels about North Korea. We are weighing up and keeping all options on the table and as we have said it many times before we are not going to broadcast what we are going to do and until that happens.feedback

Aug 02 2017

I think what's hurting the legislative agenda is Congress's inability to get things passed.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - Fracking

There was no follow-up. It was a disclosed to the proper parties. The Democrats want to continue to use this as a PR stunt and are doing everything they can to keep this story alive and in the papers every single day. The president, the American people, they voted America first, not Russia first, and that's the focus of our administration.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - Trump administration

To ensure that we have robust economic growth and promote fiscal discipline, the Trump administration believes it's important to raise the debt ceiling as soon as possible.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - Democratic Party

It doesn't bother me that the press secretary would take a meeting with somebody involved in the media about a story. The president had no knowledge of the story and it's completely untrue that he or the White House had involvement in the story. Beyond that, this is ongoing litigation and I'd refer you to the actual parties involved, which are not the White House.feedback

Aug 01 2017

General Kelly has the full authority to operate within the White House, and all staff will report to him.feedback

Aug 01 2017

We take all cyber related issues very seriously and are looking into these incidents further.feedback

Aug 01 2017

The president weighed in, as any father would, based on the limited information that he had. He certainly didn't dictate, but like I said, he weighed in, offered suggestion like any father would do.feedback

Aug 01 2017

He was simply making a comment, making a joke, and it was nothing more than that. It wasn't a directive, it was a joke. There's a very big difference.feedback

Jul 31 2017 - Trump-Putin

Right now we're reviewing our options, and when we have something to say on it, we'll let you know.feedback

Jul 29 2017 - American politics

I think we've still got a good relationship. We're going to continue working with the party and doing what we came here to do.feedback

Jul 29 2017

I saw nothing but roughly 40,000 to 45,000 Boy Scouts cheering the president on throughout his remarks and I think they were pretty excited that he was there.feedback

Jul 29 2017 - Trump Presidency

I don't know why people don't like you.feedback

Jul 28 2017 - Trump Presidency

I don't know if [Trump] has an opinion on what they should do between the two of them. I think the president as always enjoys healthy competition and conversation, and he sees that as such.feedback

Jul 28 2017

With that competition, you usually get the best results.feedback

Jul 28 2017 - Sanctions

He has now reviewed the final version and, based on its responsiveness to his negotiations, approves the bill and intends to sign it.feedback

Jul 27 2017

The president wants him to do his job, do it properly. He wants him to be tough on the intelligence leaks and he wants him to move forward.feedback

Jul 27 2017

Again, I was at that event and heard nothing but a lot of cheering and probably one of the most energetic crowds I've seen in front of the president, and so I don't have anything to add. I haven't seen the statement from the Boy Scouts, so I can't comment any further than what I saw firsthand, and that was a lot of individuals, roughly 40 to 45,000, as reported, cheering the president on.feedback

Jul 27 2017

I was at that event, and I saw nothing but roughly 40 to 45,000 Boy Scouts cheering the president on throughout his remarks, and I think that they were pretty excited that he was there and happy to hear him speak to them.feedback

Jul 27 2017 - Iran

The administration supports sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea. We continue to support strong sanctions against those three countries. And we're going to wait and see what that final legislation looks like, and make a decision at that point.feedback

Jul 27 2017

I'll always do my absolute best to truthfully answer your questions and deliver the president's message.feedback

Jul 27 2017

This is a White House that has a lot of different perspectives, because the president hires the very best people. They're not always going to agree. There are going to be a lot of different ideas. Unlike previous administrations, this isn't groupthink. We all come and have a chance to voice those ideas, voice those perspectives, and have a lot of healthy competition. And with that competition you usually get the best results.feedback

Jul 27 2017

Now I know Anthony's probably a little bit disappointed that he's not up here today. But since he did some TV this morning he was able to go ahead and get his hair and makeup done, so I think he'll be OK.feedback

Jul 26 2017 - LGBT

Look, I think sometimes you have to make decisions, and once he made a decision, he didn't feel it was necessary to hold that decision, and they're going to work together with the Department of Defense to lawfully implement it.feedback

Jul 26 2017 - LGBT

That's something that the Department of Defense and the White House will have to work together as implementation takes place and is done so lawfully.feedback

Jul 26 2017 - Immigration

He's obviously disappointed but also wants the attorney general to continue to focus on the things that the attorney general does. He wants him to lead the Department of Justice. He wants to do that strongly. He wants him to focus on things like immigration, leaks and a number of other issues, and I think that's what his focus is at this point.feedback

Jul 25 2017 - Trump Presidency

That frustration certainly hasn't gone away. And I don't think it will.feedback

Jul 23 2017 - Ukraine Crisis

We support where the legislation is now, and will continue to work with the House and Senate to put those tough sanctions in place on Russia until the situation in Ukraine is fully resolved.feedback

Jul 23 2017 - Obamacare

The president is committed to repealing and replacing Obamacare. Inaction is not an option and the president was making that clear yesterday and speaking not just to the people in the room but to the American people.feedback

Jul 20 2017

Clearly, he has confidence in him or he would not be the attorney general.feedback

Jul 20 2017

The president's making clear that the special counsel should not move outside the scope of the investigation.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - Russia

To act as if this were some secret is absolutely absurd.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - Syria conflict

I think that once again, the Russia fever has caught up with the media and everybody ran out and tried to create a story that simply didn't exist. To try to create that there was some kind of private conversation in a room with 40-plus people seems a little bit ridiculous. Not that I'm aware of.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - Syria conflict

They had a brief conversation and I'm not going to get into the specifics of the conversation but again, this was a social dinner where the president spoke with many world leaders as is the purpose. I think it would be incredibly awkward for them to all be at a dinner and not speak with each other.feedback

Jul 18 2017 - Afghanistan

I think this is already going over the cliff and doesn't need a push by the president.feedback

Jul 14 2017 - Twitter

We don't comment on ongoing litigation.feedback

Jul 13 2017

There's nothing that I'm aware of at this time.feedback

Jul 13 2017

We continue to call on the Chinese authorities to grant him full parole and to release his wife from house arrest and provide them the protections and freedoms, such as freedom of movement and access to appropriate medical care consistent with Chinese constitution, legal system, and international commitments.feedback

Jul 12 2017

In the current form, the legislation poses a number of risks to the U.S. government's ability to conduct foreign policy.feedback

Jul 12 2017

I think Democrats are trying to play political games, and I think it's ridiculous. I think it's actually undermining the credibility of the media.feedback

Jul 11 2017

I'm not sure, Peter. I'd have to check.feedback

Jul 10 2017 - Sanctions

Sanctions specific to election meddling were discussed.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - Trump Presidency

Our goal is not to pressure but simply to be helpful if possible in this very difficult and heartbreaking situation.feedback

Jul 02 2017

The president in no way form or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence. If anything, quite the contrary.feedback

Jul 01 2017 - China

No, at this point the president has not made a final decision in regards to the tariffs issue.feedback

Jun 30 2017 - Twitter

The president has been attacked mercilessly on personal accounts by members on that program ('Morning Joe'), and I think he's been very clear that when he gets attacked he's going to hit back.feedback

Jun 30 2017 - Twitter

The American people elected a fighter; they didn't elect somebody to sit back and do nothing.feedback

Jun 30 2017 - Women

I am a woman and I have been attacked by the show multiple times, but I don't cry foul because of it.feedback

Jun 29 2017

I think if anything has been inflamed, it's the dishonesty that often takes place by the news media.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - American politics

Unfortunately there was some confusion with the RNC, and due to the logistical challenges bringing in the press at this late moment is not going to be possible.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Trump Presidency

It's a political event and they've chosen to keep that separate.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Trump Presidency

He's raising money for the party. I don't think that's abnormal for any president.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Syria conflict

The military chain of command was also fully aware of the statement as it was being prepared and later released.feedback

Jun 27 2017

We couldn't comment on the decor at Trump Golf clubs one way or another.feedback

Jun 27 2017 - Syria conflict

All relevant agencies ... were involved in the process from the beginning.feedback

Jun 27 2017

If it is accurate, I think it's a disgrace to all of media, to all of journalism. I think that if we have gone to a place where the media can't be trusted to report the news, then that's a dangerous place for America. And I think if that is that place that certain outlets are going – particularly for the purpose of spiking ratings, and if that's coming directly from the top, I think that's even more scary.feedback

Jun 27 2017 - Obamacare

The president is optimistic that Republicans will live up to the promise that they've been making to the American people for seven years by repealing and replacing Obamacare. The message from the statement yesterday was extremely clear. I think it was pretty black and white.feedback

Jun 27 2017 - Russia

If anything has been inflamed, it's the dishonesty that often takes place by the news media.feedback

Jun 27 2017 - Fake news

The constant barrage of fake news directed at this president, probably, that has garnered a lot of his frustration.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - Twitter

I think the president's statement via Twitter today is extremely clear and I don't have anything to add to the statement itself.feedback

Jun 21 2017

That is not what she said. She only talked about visits with confirmed dates and we do not yet have a confirmed date.feedback

Jun 20 2017 - Trump Presidency

I think anytime the president can talk directly to the American people, that's a good thing. It's good for the president, and it's good for the American people to be able to get a message directly from him.feedback

Jun 20 2017

We have sought input from many people as we look to expand our communications operation. As he did in the beginning, Sean Spicer is managing both the communications and press office.feedback

Jun 08 2017

In terms of the mood in the White House, I would say that it's a regular Thursday at the White House. We're carrying on. I can definitively say the president's not a liar.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Sanctions

We believe that the existing executive branch sanctions regime is the best tool for compelling to Russia to fulfill its commitments.feedback

Jun 08 2017

We're carrying on, focused on the things that the president was elected to do.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Trump Presidency

I can definitively say the president is not a liar.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Trump Presidency

If it receives one, it will do its best to work with the committee to accommodate the request to the fullest extent possible consistent with these interests.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Trump Presidency

He's going to continue moving forward with exactly what the people of this country elected him to do. And he's not letting the distractions get in the way of that.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Trump Presidency

I can't imagine the president not standing by his own statement.feedback

Jun 07 2017

I think social media for the President is extremely important. It gives him the ability to speak directly to the people without the bias of the media filtering those types of communications.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Trump Presidency

I did find the timing of the release a little bit interesting, directly after testimony.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - Twitter

I think it's just the obsession over every detail of the president's tweets.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - Trump Presidency

I don't think that's actually true. The media wants to spin it that way.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - Trump Presidency

He was looking to, again, match the demands laid out by the 9th Circuit and, for the purpose of expediency, to start looking at the best way possible to move that process forward.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - London

Not at all, and I think to suggest something like that is utterly ridiculous.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Trump Presidency

In order to facilitate a swift and thorough examination of the facts sought by the Senate Intelligence Committee, President Trump will not assert executive privilege regarding James Comey's scheduled testimony.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Nordstrom vs. Trump

I think social media for the president is extremely important. It gives him the ability to speak directly to the people without the bias of the media filtering those types of communications. He, at this point, has over 100-plus million contacts through social media, on all those platforms. I think it's a very important tool for him to be able to utilize.feedback

May 14 2017

He did have a conversation with the deputy attorney general on Monday where they had come to him to express their concerns. The president asked that they put those concerns and their recommendation in writing, which is the letter that you guys have received. People in the Justice Department made a very strong recommendation, the president followed it and he made a quick and decisive action to fire James Comey. He took the recommendation seriously. And he made a decision based on that. No.feedback

Sean addressed in briefing.feedback

May 12 2017 - Russia

And we think that we've actually, by removing Director Comey, taken steps to make that happen.feedback

May 11 2017

I've heard from countless members of the FBI that are thankful and grateful for the president's decision. I'm sure some people will be disappointed. But I've heard from a large number of individuals and I don't even know that many people in the FBI. The president knew Mr Comey was not up to the task. He wanted someone to bring credibility back to the FBI.feedback

May 11 2017

People in the Justice Department made a very strong recommendation, the president followed it and he made a quick and decisive action to fire James Comey. He took the recommendation seriously. And he made a decision based on that. No. He had already made that decision. He'd been thinking about it for months, which I did say yesterday and have said many times since. ... the recommendation I guess he got from the deputy attorney general just further solidified his decision and, again, I think, reaffirmed that he made the right one.feedback

May 11 2017

We want this to come to its conclusion, we want it to come to its conclusion with integrity. And we think that we've actually, by removing Director Comey, taken steps to make that happen.feedback

May 11 2017

We had an official photographer in the room, as did they.feedback

May 11 2017

Frankly, he'd been considering letting Director Comey go since the day he was elected.feedback

May 11 2017

The president will be meeting with Acting Director [Andrew] McCabe later today to discuss that very thing – the morale at the FBI – as well as make an offer to go directly to the FBI if he feels that that's necessary and appropriate.feedback

May 11 2017

I think that Director Comey has shown over the last several months and, frankly, the last year, a lot of missteps and mistakes. As you've seen from many of the comments from Democrat members . . . they thought he should be gone. Frankly, I think it's startling that Democrats aren't celebrating this, since they've been calling for it for so long.feedback

May 11 2017

How could he have, considering the fact that most of the people declaring war today were the very ones that were begging for Director Comey to be fired?feedback

May 11 2017 - Russia

Any investigation that was taking place on Monday is still taking place today.feedback

May 11 2017

We don't believe this to be an accurate account. The integrity of our law enforcement agencies and their leadership is of the utmost importance to President Trump. He would never even suggest the expectation of personal loyalty, only loyalty to our country and its great people.feedback

May 11 2017

I don't see it as a conflict of interest and neither do many of the legal scholars who've been commenting on it over the last hour.feedback

May 11 2017

Proper protocol was followed in this procedure.feedback

May 11 2017

The rank and file of the FBI had lost confidence in their director.feedback

May 10 2017

Frankly, he'd been considering letting Director Comey go since the day he was elected. Nobody wants this to be finished and completed more than us.feedback

May 10 2017

I think it has been an erosion of confidence.feedback

May 10 2017

No, the president had lost … confidence in Director Comey and frankly he'd been considering letting Director Comey go since the day he was elected. How could he have, considering the fact that most of the people declaring war today were the very ones that were begging for Director Comey to be fired?feedback

May 10 2017

Trump "had been considering letting Director Comey go since the day he was elected. The president was wearing a different hat. The circumstances change when you become the president.feedback

May 10 2017

Frankly, it's kind of getting absurd. There's nothing there. We've heard that time and time again.feedback

May 10 2017

Let's put it behind us, let's move on and let's focus on what we need to do to turn our country around.feedback

May 10 2017

Frankly, if that's going to continue, it's going to continue whether Jim Comey is there or not.feedback

May 09 2017

He's simply retiring from public service. He spent 30 years in public service and 10 in the private sector.feedback

May 08 2017

The bottom line is the president is the president no matter where he goes. And he doesn't get to control the level of costs in security that may come along with that.feedback

May 08 2017

The president, over the last several months, lost confidence in Director Comey. The DOJ lost confidence in Director Comey. Bipartisan members of Congress made it clear that they had lost confidence in Director Comey. And, most importantly, the rank-and-file of the FBI had lost confidence in their director.feedback

May 05 2017

The president was complimenting a foreign leader on the operations of their healthcare system. It didn't mean anything more than that. I think he believes that they have a good healthcare system for Australia. What works in Australia may not work in the United States.feedback

May 05 2017 - Women

We left on very good terms and wish her the very best and certainly hope for great things for her in the future.feedback

May 05 2017

The president has made very clear that the opioid epidemic in this country is a huge priority for him.feedback

Apr 25 2017

Unlike his predecessor who abused executive authority to expand the size and scope of the federal government in an end run around Congress, President Trump is using his legal authority to restrain Washington bureaucrats.feedback

Apr 19 2017

The president has been pretty clear about where he is on releasing his tax returns. People knew that before they voted in November, and he still won overwhelmingly. The American people are a lot more concerned about their own taxes than President Trump's, and that's what he's focused on.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - Turkish referendum result

The president's number one job is to keep Americans safe. And if he needs to work with countries like Turkey and others to do that, that's his priority and what his focus is.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - Democratic Party

I wouldn't use the word referendum. I think he hopes to have a Republican elected.feedback

Apr 14 2017

We are focused on dealing with the problems keeping Americans up at night, not the overblown palace intrigue stories the media is obsessed with.feedback

Apr 08 2017 - Syria conflict

Once again this is completely false story driven by people who want to distract from the success taking place in this administration.feedback

Apr 06 2017

There are many serious issues at hand, which the president has been totally focused on, and the only conflicts his advisers are concerned with are those that are impacting the lives and safety of Americans, as well as the citizens of the world.feedback

Mar 29 2017

I've spent a pretty good deal of time around him, and he has been nothing but respectful and deferential.feedback

Mar 29 2017

There are a lot of 25-year-olds in the White House. Are you going to be writing about all of them?feedback

Mar 22 2017

We're open to changes that help make the bill better.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Russia

We do not feel it's appropriate to comment on someone who is not an employee at the White House.feedback

Mar 21 2017

The fact that he has spent more time in states he won is just understanding basic math.feedback

Mar 19 2017

He intended to play a few holes and decided to play longer.feedback
