THE PRESIDENT: Hello, everybody. Were going to The Villages in Ocala, Florida. We have a big crowd. Were going to be talking about healthcare. Were doing a lot of work on healthcare. Were very successful at it. And so were going to be speaking to the great people of Florida. And I think theyre very happy with the job were doing.
Q Mr. President, first question, what did you
Q What exactly, specifically, is inaccurate in the whistleblowers complaint?
THE PRESIDENT: What?
Q What exactly is inaccurate in the whistleblowers complaint?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, if you look at the whistleblowers complaint, its totally inaccurate because the conversation that I had was absolutely perfect. And most people that have read it say the same thing. The whistleblower never saw the saw the conversation. He got his information, I guess, second- or third-hand. He wrote something that was total fiction. And now, when people see that, theyre not happy.
Q Do you want to restrict investment flows into China and have Chinese stocks delisted?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, were looking at a lot of different things. China is coming in next week. Were going to have a meeting with them. Well see. But were doing very well.
Some of the numbers, I think, are being affected by all of the nonsense, all of the politics going on in this country by the Democrats. I call them the Do-nothings. They do nothing for this country. They dont care about this country. But the numbers, really, are looking very good, going into the future.
So, well see. I have a lot of options on China. But if they dont do what we want, we have tremendous tremendous power.
Q Mr. President, what exactly did you hope Zelensky would do about the Bidens after your phone call? Exactly.
THE PRESIDENT: Well, I would think that, if they were honest about it, theyd start a major investigation into the Bidens. Its a very simple answer.
They should investigate the Bidens, because how does a company thats newly formed and all these companies, if you look at
And, by the way, likewise, China should start an investigation into the Bidens, because what happened in China is just about as bad as what happened with with Ukraine.
So, I would say that President Zelensky if it were me, I would recommend that they start an investigation into the Bidens. Because nobody has any doubt that they werent crooked. That was a crooked deal 100 percent. He had no knowledge of energy; didnt know the first thing about it. All of a sudden, he is getting $50,000 a month, plus a lot of other things. Nobody has any doubt.
And they got rid of a prosecutor who was a very tough prosecutor. They got rid of him. Now theyre trying to make it the opposite way. But they got rid
So, if I were the President, I would certainly recommend that of Ukraine.
Q Have you asked President Xi to investigate at all?
THE PRESIDENT: I havent, but its certainly something we can start thinking about. Because Im sure that President Xi does not like being under that kind of scrutiny, where billions of dollars is taken out his country by a guy that just got kicked out of the Navy. He got kicked out of the Navy; all of a sudden, hes getting billions of dollars. You know what they call that? They call that a payoff.
Q In your view, Mr. President in your view, should the White House comply with any congressional subpoenas associated with the whistleblower complaint?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, I leave that to the lawyers. I can say, though, that Schiff has now been proven to be a liar. Weve known it for three years, because theyve been trying to impeach for three years. Hes a li- hes a stone-cold liar. So I leave that to the lawyers. Thats up to them to decide. But the whole investigation is crumbling.
Q Can you still work with Congress to get other work done? Can you still work with Congress?
THE PRESIDENT: I can. Yeah, I can.
Q How can you do that? How?
THE PRESIDENT: You got I
Q Mr. President, Pakistan is urging (inaudible) talks with the Taliban. Are you going to do that?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, we have a real problem. Weve been hitting the Taliban very, very hard. And, as far as Im concerned, they still havent recovered from killing 12 people one of happened to be a great American solider from Puerto Rico. They still have not recovered, and they probably never will.
Q Mr. President President Trump, what is McConnell what is McConnell telling you about impeachment? Has he assured you that Senate Republicans wont vote for it?
THE PRESIDENT: No, but I read Mitch McConnells statement yesterday, and he read my phone call. And, as you know, he put out a statement that said that was the most innocent phone call hes read. And I spoke to him about it, too.
He read my phone call with the President of Ukraine. Mitch McConnell he said, That was the most innocent phone call that Ive read. I mean, give me a break. Anybody that reads it says the same thing. And the only people that dont understand it is when they look at the false, fabricated, fraudulent statement made by Shifty Schiff.
Q Mr. President, Vice President Biden Vice President Biden said that hes not going anywhere. He has said that youre not going to destroy his family. What do whats your response?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, I think Biden is going down. And I think his whole situation because now you may very well find that there are many other countries that they scammed, just like they scammed China and Ukraine. And basically, who are they really scamming? The USA. And its not good.
Q He said he was carrying out the official policy
THE PRESIDENT: And thats probably why China, for so many years, has had a sweetheart deal where China rips off the USA because they deal like people with Biden, where they give their son a billion and a half dollars. And thats probably why China has such a sweetheart deal that, for so many years, theyve been ripping off our country.
Q Do you support SB-206 the college athletes getting paid? Or do you side with the NCAA and the schools? And do you think this should be a federal law?
THE PRESIDENT: Were looking at it. Were looking at very closely. Its under study.
Q Has North Korea gone too far this time with the ballistic missile? Is that too far?
THE PRESIDENT: Well see. They want to talk, and well be talking to them soon. Well see.
So Im going to yes?
Q Mr. President, why did recall the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine? Was she a problem? Why did you recall her?
THE PRESIDENT: I heard very bad things about her. And I dont know if I recalled her or somebody recalled her, but I heard very, very bad things about her for a long period of time. Not good.
Thank you. Ill see you in Florida. Ill see you all in Florida.
10:24 A.M. EDT
Trump’s rally tonight is going to be AWESOME!
The helipad format has forced Big Media to ask actual questions instead of giving speeches.
What will his announcement be like? “In the interest of preserving the privacy of my family going forward,.... I have elected to withdraw.”
“Because Trump is so evil, we are afraid for our safety by me staying in the campaign”??
This will be interesting. I bet crazy Joe has a team working on it now.
Trump knows things before he teases the media - Biden is done.
“To avoid causing a distraction that would interfere with the Democrat party’s great plans to take away your guns, ruin your healthcare, and tank the economy, I am “suspending indefinitely”...and endorsing Poca...I mean Senator Poca...aw dammit that fake Indian woman with the shrill voice”.
Really? His Obamacare replacement was due out in August. Maybe he'll talk about that in Florida.
Don't you love this man? Any other of these GOP bum politicians would have backed down, with these questions esp when you see that they're coming at him from all sides, including the likes of people from his own party...
But he double downs...
Our president is a very fast learner. He gave them a chance to do the right thing, and they squandered the honor and privilege to be on the WH Press Corps.
Now, they’re just a bunch of gaggling voices with no face.
Dem ticket will be Warren and the Army major babe.
Trump delivered a great speech today at the Villages on Medicare and signed an executive order.
No actual rally tonight, though.
Will have rallies the next two Thursday nights.
Next week in Minnesota and the following Thursday in Dallas.
Damn, I was looking forward to that. Thanks for telling me though and now I can ignore the news tonight.
Tonight? Where at?
You’re most welcome.
Sorry you are disappointed, but PDJT’s event took place a couple hours ago this afternoon.
Hope you will be able to enjoy both of the upcoming rallies, each of which will be starting at 7 PM CT or 8 PM ET.
Yeah, I agree, my newsworthy portion of the day is pretty much done.
Will probably keep listening to Hannity, check Howie Carr and Mark Levin—and wait to see what’s on tap for tomorrow.
It’s me again.
Just thought you’d might like to know that President Trump’s event today in Florida about Medicare will be repeated on CSPAN tonight at 8 PM ET.
Hope you’ll be able to enjoy this second chance to see what you were looking forward to . . .
if it is, the black vote stays home
And CSPAN keeps just about everything archived on their website if, like me, you plan to be watching baseball this evening.
