Trump’s full speech declaring a national emergency for border wall funding

Trump’s full speech declaring a national emergency for border wall funding


-Before we begin,
I’d like to just say that we have a large team
of very talented people. In China, we’ve had
a negotiation going on for about two days. It’s going extremely well. Who knows what that means, because it only matters
if we get it done, but we’re very much working
very closely with China and President Xi,
who I respect a lot. Very good relationship
that we have. And we’re a lot closer than
we ever were in this country with having
a real trade deal. We’re covering everything — all of the points that people
have been talking about for years
that said couldn’t be done, whether it was theft or anything
— anything — the unfairness. We’ve been losing on average
$375 billion a year with China. A lot of people think
it’s $506 billion. Some people think
it’s much more than that. We’re going to be leveling
the playing field. The tariffs are hurting China
very badly. They don’t want them,
and frankly, if we can make the deal,
it’d be my honor to remove them. But otherwise, we’re having
many billions of dollars pouring into our treasury, and we’ve never had
that before with China. It’s been very much
of a one-way street. So that’s happening,
and the relationship with China is very good, but I think they finally
respect our country. They haven’t respected us
for a long time — not for a long time. The UK and the US, as you probably have been
seeing and hearing, we’re agreeing to go forward and
preserve our trade agreement. You know all of the situation
with respect to Brexit and the complexity
and the problems, but we have a very good
trading relationship with UK, and that’s just been
strengthened further. So with the UK, we’re continuing
our trade, and we are going to actually be
increasing it very substantially. As time goes by, we expect that
the UK will be very, very substantially increased as it relates to trade
with the United States. The relationship there,
also, is very good. We have a lot of great
announcements having to do with Syria and our success with the
eradication of the caliphate, and that’ll be announced
over the next 24 hours, and many other things. A lot of positive things
are going on. We’re going on a summit, and you know all
about the summit. It’ll be in Vietnam, Hanoi,
and we’ll be meeting at Hanoi. I think a lot of you
will be going, I suspect. And I hope we have
the same good luck as we had in the first summit. A lot was done
in the first summit. No more rockets going up. No more missiles going up. No more testing of nuclear. Get back our remains,
the remains of our great heroes from the Korean War. And we got back our hostages. But we hope we’re going to be
very much equally as successful. I’m in no rush for speed. We just don’t want testing. The sanctions, as you know,
remain. Everything is remaining. China’s been helping us,
and Russia’s been helping us. And South Korea I think
you can say has been — we’ve been working very closely
with South Korea, with Japan. But China, Russia on the border
have really been at least partially living up to what
they’re supposed to be doing, and that’s okay,
as per the United Nations. So we will have a meeting on
the 27th and 28th of February, and I think that will be
a very successful one. I look forward to seeing
Chairman Kim. We have also established
a very good relationship, which has never happened,
between him or his family and the United States. They have really taken advantage
of the United States. Billions of dollars
has been paid to them. And we won’t let that happen, but we think that North Korea
and Chairman Kim have a tremendous potential
as an economic force, economic power. Their location between
South Korea and then Russia and China right smack
in the middle is phenomenal, and we think they have
a great chance for tremendous economic
prosperity in the future. So I look forward to seeing
Chairman Kim in Vietnam. Today, I’m announcing several
critical actions that my administration
is taking to confront a problem that we have right here at home. We fight wars that are
6,000 miles away, wars that we should have
never been in in many cases, but we don’t control
our own border. So we’re going to confront
the national-security crisis on our southern border, and we’re going to do it
one way or the other. We have to do it, not because
it was a campaign promise, which it is. It was one of many,
by the way — not my only one. We’re rebuilding the military. Our economy is thriving
like never before. You look at other economies. They’re doing terribly,
and we’re doing phenomenally. The market is up
tremendously today, not that that’s anything but —
you know, ’cause I’ll go back in,
and they’ll say, “Oh, the market just went down.” But the market is getting close
to the new highs that we created. We have all the records.
We have every record. But we’re getting close to that
point again where we’ll create new records. So our country is doing
very well economically, and we’ve done a lot. But one of the things I said
I have to do and I want to do
is border security, because we have
tremendous amounts of drugs flowing into our country, much of it coming
from the Southern border. When you look and when
you listen to politicians, in particular certain Democrats, they say it all comes through
the port of entry. It’s wrong, it’s wrong. It’s just a lie. It’s all a lie. They say walls don’t work. Walls work 100%,
whether it’s El Paso — I really was smiling, because the other night,
I was in El Paso. We had a tremendous crowd and —
tremendous crowd. And I asked the people,
many of whom were from El Paso, but they came
from all over Texas. And I asked them.
I said, “Let me ask you the — as a crowd, when the wall
went up, was it better?” You were there, some of you. It was not only better,
it was like 100% better. You know what they did. But that’s only one example. There are so many examples. In El Paso, they have close
to 2,000 murders right on the other side
of the wall, and they had 23 murders. It’s a lot of murders, but it’s not close
to 2,000 murders, right on the other side
of the wall, in Mexico. So everyone knows
that walls work, and there are better examples
than El Paso, frankly. You just take a look
almost everywhere. Take a look at Israel.
They’re building another wall. Their wall is 99. 9% effective, they tell me —
99. 9%. That’s what it would be
with us, too. The only weakness is they go
to a wall, and then they go
around the wall. They go around the wall and in,
okay? That’s what it is.
Very simple. And a big majority
of the big drugs, the big drug loads
don’t go through ports of entry. They can’t go
through ports of entry. You can’t take big loads,
’cause you have people. We have some very capable
people, the Border Patrol, law enforcement looking. You can’t take human traffic,
women and girls — you can’t take them
through ports of entry. You can’t have them tied up
in the back seat of a car or a truck or a van. They opened the door.
They look. They can’t see three women
with tape on their mouth or three women
whose hands are tied. They go through areas
where you have no wall. Everybody knows that. Nancy knows it. Chuck knows it.
They all know it. It’s all a big lie.
It’s a big con game. You don’t have to be very smart
to know you put up a barrier, the people come in,
and that’s it. They can’t do anything,
unless they walk left or right and they find an area
where there’s no barrier, and they come
into the United States. Welcome. We’ve detained more people. Our border agents are doing
such incredible work. Our military has been
incredible. We put up barbed wire on top of certain old walls
that were there. We fixed the wall, and we
loaded up with barbed wire. It’s very successful. But our military has been
fantastic, and I want to thank them,
and it’s very necessary. We’ve broken up two caravans
that are on their way. They’re in the process
of breaking up. We have another one that
we haven’t been able to break up yet. We’ve been actually
working with Mexico much better than ever before. I want to thank the President. I want to thank Mexico. They have their own problems. They have the largest
number of murders that they’ve ever had
in their history, almost 40,000 murders —
40,000. And they got to straighten
that out, and I think they will. But I just want to thank
the President, because he’s been helping us
with these monstrous caravans that have been coming up. We had one that was up
to over 15,000 people. It’s largely broken up. Others have gotten through,
and in Tijuana, you have a lot of people
staying there. If we didn’t have the wall up
and if we didn’t have the wall secured and strengthened, they would have
walked right through. They’d be welcomed
to the United States. One of the things we’ve saved
tremendous — just a tremendous amount on
would be sending the military. If we had a wall, we don’t need
the military, ’cause we’d have a wall. So I’m going to be signing
a national emergency, and it’s been signed
many times before. It’s been signed
by other presidents. From 1977 or so, it gave
the presidents the power. There’s rarely been a problem. They sign it.
Nobody cares. I guess they weren’t
very exciting. But nobody cares.
They signed it, for far less important things
in some cases — in many cases. We’re talking about an invasion
of our country with drugs, with human traffickers, with all
types of criminals and gangs. We have some of
the greatest people I know. They’ve been with me from
the beginning of my campaign, almost from the first week,
the angel moms. Unfortunately,
we have new angel moms. One incredible woman
just showed me her daughter who we’re talking about killed
in the year of 18. I said, “I haven’t
seen you before.” She said, “No, I’m new.”
I said, “That’s too bad.” It’s too bad. It’s so sad. Stand up, just for a second. Show how beautiful
your girl was. Thank you. I have such respect
for these people — angel moms, angel dads,
angel families. I have great respect
for these people. These are great people. These are great people. They’re fighting for their
children that have been killed by people that were illegally
in this country. And the press
doesn’t cover them. They don’t want to, incredibly. And they’re not treated the way
they should be. They’re fighting
for other people, ’cause they don’t want
what happened to their children or husband or anybody — we have one young lady
whose husband — please, stand up. Her husband was just killed
in Maryland. Incredible man, just killed. Beautiful children. Won’t be seeing
their father again. These are brave people. These are people that —
they don’t have to be here. They don’t have to be
doing this. They’re doing it
for other people. So I just want to thank
all of you for being here, okay? I really do.
I want to thank you. Incredible people. Last year, 70,000 Americans
were killed, at least — I think the number
is ridiculously low — by drugs, including meth and
heroin and cocaine, fentanyl. And one of the things that I did
with President Xi in China when I met him in Argentina
at a summit, before I even started
talking about the trade — it was a trade meeting.
It went very well. But before I talked about trade, I talked about something
more important. I said, “Listen, we have
tremendous amounts of fentanyl coming into our country.” Kills tens of thousands
of people, I think far more
than anybody registers. And I’d love you to declare it
a lethal drug and put it
on your criminal list. And their criminal list is much
tougher than our criminal list. Their criminal list,
a drug dealer gets a thing
called the death penalty. Our criminal list, a drug dealer
gets a thing called “How about a fine?” And when I asked President Xi,
I said, “Do you have a drug problem?” “No, no, no.” I said, “You have 1.
4 billion people. What do you mean
you have no drug problem?” “No, we don’t have
a drug problem.” I said, “Why?” “Death penalty. We give death penalty
to people that sell drugs. End of problem.”
What do we do? We set up blue-ribbon
committees, lovely men and women. They sit around a table. They have lunch, they eat,
they dine, and they waste a lot of time. So if we want to get smart,
we can get smart. You can end the drug problem. You can end it a lot faster
than you think. But President Xi has agreed
to put fentanyl on his list of deadly, deadly drugs. And it’s a criminal penalty,
and the penalty is death. So that’s, frankly,
one of the things I’m most excited about
in our trade deal. If you want to know the truth, I think maybe there’s
no more important point. We’re going to make billions
of dollars with this trade deal. It’s going to be great
for our country and great for China, I hope. Their market’s down
close to 40%. Our market’s way up. We’ve picked up
since my election trillions of dollars of worth —
trillions — many trillions. And China’s lost
trillions of dollars. But I want it to be good
for China, and I want it to be good
for the United States, so we’ll see what happens. China’s coming here next week,
by the way. They’re coming home,
the traders, and then China
is coming here next week. And, then, I’ll be meeting
with President Xi at some point
after that to maybe — for some remaining deals. We’ll make them directly,
one on one, ourselves. So, we’re going to be
signing today and registering
national emergency, and it’s a great thing to do, because we have
an invasion of drugs, invasion of gangs, invasion of
people, and it’s unacceptable. And by signing
the national emergency, something signed many times
by other presidents — many, many times. President Obama —
in fact, we may be using one of
the national emergencies that he signed having to do
with criminal cartels. It’s a very good emergency
that he signed, and we’re going to use parts of
it in our dealings on cartels. So that would be a second
national emergency, but in that case,
it’s already in place. And what we really want
to do is simple. It’s not like it’s complicated. It’s very simple. We want to stop drugs
from coming into our country. We want to stop criminals
and gangs from coming
into our country. Nobody’s done the job
that we’ve ever done. I mean, nobody’s done the job
that we’ve done on the border. And in a way, what I did by
creating such a great economy — and if the opposing party
got in, this economy
would be down the tubes. You know, I hear a lot of people
say, “Oh, well. But maybe the
previous administration –” Let me tell you,
the previous administration, it was heading south,
and it was going fast. We would have been down
the tubes. The regulations were
strangling our country — unnecessary regulations. By creating such
a strong economy — you just look
at your televisions and see what’s
going on today. It’s through the roof. What happens is more people
want to come. So we have far more people trying to get
into our country today than probably
we’ve ever had before, and we’ve done an incredible
job in stopping them. But it’s a massive number
of people. If we had the wall,
it would be very easy. We would make up for the cost
of the wall just in the cost of the fact that I would be able
to have fewer people. We wouldn’t need all of
this incredible talent, some of whom are sitting
in the first row. You wouldn’t need all of
this incredible talent. We would get thousands
of law-enforcement people, including Border Patrol. You put them in different areas. You have them doing
different things, law enforcement
and Border Patrol. And I want to thank
law enforcement, and I want to thank
Border Patrol, and I want to thank ICE. ICE is abused by the press
and by the Democrats. And by the way, we’re going
to be taking care of ICE. You know, we talked
about the new bill. We’re going to be
taking care of ICE. They wanted to get rid of ICE, and the bill is just
the opposite of that. A lot of good things happening. So that’s the story. We want to have a safe country. I ran on a very simple slogan —
Make America Great Again. If you’re going to have drugs
pouring across the border, if you’re going to have
human traffickers pouring across the border
in areas where we have
no protection, in areas where we
don’t have a barrier, then very hard to make
America great again. But we’ve done a fantastic job, but we haven’t been
given the equipment. We haven’t been given the walls. And in the bills, by the way, they didn’t even fight us
on most of this stuff — ports of entry. We have so much money, we don’t
know what to do with it. I don’t know what to do with all
the money they’re giving us. It’s crazy. The only place they don’t
give us much money — $1. 375 billion. Sounds like a lot,
but it’s not so much, although we’re putting it to much better use
than it used to be. A lot of the past
administrations, it was easy to get.
They didn’t build, or they didn’t do
what they could have done. It would have been great. It would have been great
to have done it earlier, but I was a little new
to the job, a little new to the profession. And we had a little
disappointment for the first year
and a half. People that should have
stepped up did not step up. They didn’t step up,
and they should have. It would have been easy. Not that easy, but it would
have been a lot easier. But some people didn’t step up. But we’re stepping up now. So we have a chance of getting
close to $8 billion. Whether it’s $8 billion
or $2 billion or $1. 5 billion, it’s going to build
a lot of wall. We’re getting it done. We’re right now in construction
with wall in some of
the most important areas, and we have renovated
a tremendous amount of wall, making it just as good as new. That’s where a lot of the money
has been spent on renovation. In fact, we were restricted
to renovating, which is okay. But we’re going to run out of
areas that we can renovate pretty soon,
so — and we need new wall. So, I want to thank everybody
for being here. I want to thank in particular the angel moms and dads
for being here. Thank you very much. We have great respect for you. The real country,
our real country, the people that really love
our country, they love you. So I just want you to know that. I know how hard you fight, and I know how hard
a fight you have. I also want to thank all of the
law enforcement for the job you do. Believe me, our country loves
you, and they respect you greatly. And we’re giving you
a lot of surplus. We’re giving you surplus
military equipment, which a lot of people
didn’t like giving previous to this administration, but hundreds of millions
of dollars of surplus equipment. And as we get it, as you know,
we send it down, and you have much
better protection. But I really appreciate
you being here. So, the order is signed,
and I’ll sign the final papers as soon as I get
into the Oval Office, and we will have
a national emergency, and we will then be sued, and they will sue us
in the Ninth Circuit, even though
it shouldn’t be there, and we will possibly
get a bad ruling, and then we’ll get
another bad ruling, and then we’ll end up
in the Supreme Court, and hopefully
we’ll get a fair shake, and we’ll win at the Supreme
Court, just like the ban. They sued us in
the Ninth Circuit, and we lost, and then we lost
in the appellate division, and then we went to
the Supreme Court, and we won. And it was very interesting,
’cause yesterday, they were talking about the ban,
’cause we have a ban. It’s very helpful,
Madame Secretary. Is that right? Without the ban,
we’d have a bigger problem. We have a ban on certain areas,
certain countries, depending on what’s
going on in the world. And we won,
but somebody said, “President Trump lost
on the ban.” Well, he was right.
I lost at the lower court. He didn’t say that
we ultimately won at the United States
Supreme Court. They didn’t want to say that.
They didn’t want to go that far. They were saying how I lost. The person sitting
right up here, “Donald Trump
lost on the ban.” Yeah, I did, and then
I lost a second time. You should have said that, too. And then it went
to the Supreme Court, and I won. Didn’t want to take it that far, but we won on the ban,
and we won on other things, too. The probably easiest one to win is on declaring
a national emergency, because we’re declaring it
for virtual invasion purposes — drugs, traffickers, and gangs. And one of the things
is to finish — we have removed thousands
of MS-13 gang monsters — thousands. They’re out of this country. We take them out
by the thousands. And they are monsters.
Okay. Do you have any questions? Yeah. John, go ahead. -Yes. You were prepared. Mr.
President, a lot of the money — -You’re saying I was prepared? -With the microphone.
-Oh. I thought you meant
I was prepared. I couldn’t believe
you said that. People don’t like saying that. -You were prepared
for questions. -I am prepared.
I’m always prepared. -A lot of the money that goes
to count towards your $8 billion is money that’s being
reprogrammed in the DoD budget. How can you guarantee
to military families and to our men and women
of the military that none of the money that
would be reprogrammed to a wall will take away from other
technology, other renovations, construction that is desperately
needed in our military? -Yeah.
So, John, we had certain funds that are being used
at the discretion of generals, at the discretion
of the military. Some of them haven’t been
allocated yet, and some of the generals think
that this is more important. I was speaking
to a couple of them. They think this is
far more important than what they were
going to use it for. I said, “What were you going
to use it for?” And I won’t go into details, but didn’t sound
too important to me. Plus, if you think, I’ve gotten
$700 billion for the military in year one,
and then last year $716 billion. And we’re rebuilding
our military, but we have a lot, and under
the previous administration, our military was depleted — badly depleted,
and they weren’t spending — I mean, they had
a much smaller amount of money. So when I got $700 billion
and that $716 billion. And this year, it’s going to be
pretty big, too, because there’s few things more
important than our military. You know, I’m a big deficit
believer and all of that, but before we really start
focusing on certain things, we have to build up
our military. It was very badly depleted. And we’re buying all new
jetfighters, all new missiles, all new defensive equipment. We have — We’ll soon have a military
like we’ve never had before. But when you think about
the kind of numbers you’re talking about —
so you have $700 billion, $716 billion —
when I need $2 billion, $3 billion out of that
for a wall — which is a very important
instrument, very important for the military because of the drugs
that pour in. And as you know, we have
specific rules and regulations where they have drugs, and what you can do
in order to stop drugs, and that’s part of it, too. We’re taking a lot of money
from that realm also. But when you have that kind of
money going into the military, this is a very, very small
amount that we’re asking for. Yeah, go ahead.
Go ahead. ABC.
Not NBC. I like ABC a little bit more —
not much. Come on, ABC. Not much. Pretty close.
-Mr. President,
what do you say to those, including some of
your Republican allies, who say that you are violating
the Constitution with this move and setting a bad precedent
that will be abused by possibly Democratic
presidents in the future? Marco Rubio has made this point.
-Well, not too many people. Yeah, not too many people
have said that. But the courts
will determine that. Look, I expect to be sued. I shouldn’t be sued. Very rarely do you get sued
when you do national emergency. And then other people say,
“Oh, if you use it for this, now what are we using it for?” We’ve got to get rid of drugs
and gangs and people. It’s an invasion. We have an invasion of drugs
and criminals coming into our country
that we stop, but it’s very hard to stop. With a wall,
it would be very easy. So I think that we will be
very successful in court. I think it’s clear. And the people that say
we create precedent — well, what do you have, 56? There are a lot of times —
Well, that’s creating precedent. And many of those are far less
important than having a border. You don’t have a border,
you don’t have a country. You know, we fight —
before I got here — we fight all over the world
to create borders for countries, but we don’t create a border
for our own country. So I think what will happen is,
sadly, we’ll be sued, and sadly,
it’ll go through a process. And, happily, we’ll win —
I think. Go ahead.
Let’s go. Let’s hear it, NBC.
Come on. -Thank you, Mr.
President. I just want to say, in the past, when President Obama tried
to use executive action as it related to immigration,
you said, “The whole concept
of executive order, it’s not the way the country
is supposed to be run.” You said, “You’re supposed to go
through Congress and make a deal.” Will you concede that you were
unable to make the deal that you had promised
in the past, and that the deal you’re ending
up with now, from Congress, is less than what you could have
had before a 35-day shutdown? -No, look,
I went through Congress. I made a deal. I got almost $1. 4 billion when I wasn’t supposed
to get one dollar — not one dollar. “He’s not going
to get one dollar.” Well, I got $1.
4 billion. But I’m not happy with it. I also got billions and billions
of dollars for other things — port of entries,
lots of different things — the purchase
of drug equipment — more than we were
even requesting. In fact, the primary fight
was on the wall. Everything else,
we have so much — as I said,
I don’t know what to do with it, we have so much money. But on the wall, they skimped. So I did — I was successful,
in that sense, but I want to do it faster. I could do the wall
over a longer period of time. I didn’t need to do this. But I’d rather do it
much faster. And I don’t have to do it
for the election. I’ve already done a lot of wall,
for the election — 2020. And the only reason
we’re up here talking about this is because of the election, because they want to try
and win an election, which it looks like they’re not
going to be able to do. And this is one of the ways they think they can
possibly win, is by obstruction
and a lot of other nonsense. And I think that I just want to
get it done faster, that’s all. Okay, uh —
-Where is the wall being built? -Yes, ma’am, go ahead. -Thank you, Mr.
President. -Thank you.
-Roberta Rampton from Reuters. I wanted to ask about China. Do you feel that enough progress
has been made in the talks to head off the increase in
tariffs scheduled for March 1? -Well, you know, you’re talking
to the wrong person, because I happen
to like tariffs, okay? I mean, we’re taking in billions
and billions of dollars in tariffs from China. And our steel industry now,
as an example, we tax dumped steel — much of it comes from China —
at 25%. Our steel industry is
so vibrant now again, they’re building plants
all over the United States. It’s a beautiful thing. And from a defensive standpoint, and from any standpoint,
you need steel. You know, you can do
without certain industries. Our country cannot do
without steel. So, I love tariffs, but I also
love them to negotiate. And right now, China is paying
us billions of dollars a year in tariffs. And I haven’t even started. Now, here’s the thing — If we make a deal,
they won’t have to pay. You know, it’ll be a whole
different story. They won’t be paying that,
but we’ll have a fair deal. There won’t be
intellectual-property theft. There won’t be so many
other things that have gone on. And no other President
has done this. No other — You know, we didn’t
have a deal with China. You had the WTO, one of the worst trade
deals ever made — probably even worse than NAFTA,
if that’s believable, which is, you know,
hard to believe, because I think NAFTA
was just a disaster. It was a total disaster
for our country. And now we made the USMCA, which is going to be
a terrific — a great deal. And by the way, the USMCA,
from Mexico — that’s United States,
Mexico, Canada — that’s where the money
is coming from, not directly but indirectly,
for the wall. And nobody wants to talk
about that. Because we’re saving billions
and billions of dollars a year, if Congress approves that deal. Now, they might not
want to approve a deal just because they’ll say — One of the things
I’m thinking of doing — this has never been
done before — No matter how good a deal I make
with China, if they sell me Beijing for one dollar,
if they give me 50% of their land and every ship that they’ve built
over the last two years — which is a lot —
and they give them to me free, the Democrats will say,
“What a lousy deal. That’s a terrible deal.” Like, ZTE, I got a billion — more than a billion-dollar
penalty in a short period of time. And the Democrats said,
“Oh, should’ve gotten more.” When I made that deal, I said,
“This is incredible.” I just got — I got over
a billion-dollar penalty, plus they had to change
their board of directors, they had to change
their top management, but they had to pay over
a billion dollars. I said, “What a deal.”
It took like a week. And the Democrats
didn’t even know there was a problem with ZTE. I’m the one that fined them. I’m the one that settled it. Over a billion dollars. And President Xi called me, and he said it would be
important to him if they could get a deal. And we made a deal — paid —
like, in a short period of time. The Democrats went out and said, “Aw, they should’ve
done better.” So what I’m thinking of doing
is getting Chuck Schumer, getting Nancy Pelosi,
having them bring two or three of their brilliant
representatives, and we’ll all go down together, and what we’ll do
is we’ll negotiate. I’ll put them in the room
and let them speak up. Because any deal I make
with China, if it’s the great– it’s going to be better
than any deal that anybody ever dreamt possible,
or I’m not going to have a deal. It’s a very simple. But any deal I make with China,
Schumer is going to stand up and say, “Oh,
it should’ve been better. It should’ve been better.” And you know what?
That’s not acceptable to me. So I’m thinking about doing
something very different. I don’t think it’s ever been — I just don’t want
to be second-guessed. But that’s not even
second-guess. That’s called politics. Sadly, I’d probably do the
same thing to them, okay? But any deal I make,
toward the end, I’m going to bring Schumer —
at least offer him — and Pelosi. I’m going to say,
“Please join me on the deal.” And, by the way, I just see
our new Attorney General is sitting in the front row. Please stand up, Bill. [applause]
Such an easy job he’s got. He’s got the easiest job
in government. Thank you, and congratulations. That was a great vote yesterday.
Thank you very much. -Mr.
President — -Yes, go ahead, go ahead.
-In your remarks, sir, you said that you were too new
to politics, earlier in your administration, when you would have preferred
that this be done. Is that an admission of how you
might be changing on the job? And —
-Well, I’m learning. I mean, I am learning. Don’t forget, it’s not like
I’ve done this for — A senator came into my office
and said, “Sir, I’ve been running
for office for 30 years. I’ve won seven out of seven. I did lose a couple
when I was younger.” I said, “Well, I’ve won one
out of one. But, you know,
I never did politics before. Now I do politics.” I will tell you, I’m very
disappointed at certain people, a particular one, for not having pushed
this faster, but I’ve learned — -Are you referring
to Speaker Ryan, sir? -Who?
-Speaker Ryan. -Let’s not talk about it.
-Okay. -What difference does it make? But they should have
pushed it faster, they should have pushed it
harder, and they didn’t. They didn’t. If they would have, it would
have been a little bit better. In the meantime,
I’ve built a lot of wall. I have a lot of money,
and I’ve built a lot of wall. But it would have been nice
to have gotten done. And I would like to see
major immigration reform, and maybe that’s something
we can all work on, Bill, where we all get together and do
major immigration reform — not just for a wall,
for a barrier. For port of entry,
for other things. We have a real problem.
We have catch-and-release. You catch a criminal,
and you have to release them. We have so many other things. You have chain migration,
where a bad person comes in, brings 22 or 23
or 35 of his family members — because he has his mother,
his grandmother, his sister, his cousin,
his uncle — they’re all in. You know what happened
on the West Side Highway. That young wise guy drove over
and killed eight people and horribly injured — nobody talks about that —
horribly — like, loss of legs and arms —
going 60 miles an hour. He made a right turn into a park
on the West Side Highway, along the Hudson River
in New York. He had many people brought in because he was
in the United States. It’s called chain migration. And then you have the lottery. It’s a horror show, because when countries
put people into the lottery, they’re not putting you in; they’re putting some very bad
people in the lottery. It’s common sense. If I ran a country,
and if I have a lottery system of people
going to the United States, I’m not going to
put in my stars. I’m going to put in people
I don’t want. The lottery system
is a disaster. I’m stuck with it.
-Mr. President, could you tell us —
-It should have — wait. It should have never happened.
Okay. -Mr.
President, could you tell us to what degree some of
the outside conservative voices helped to shape your views
on this national emergency? -I would talk about it. Look, Sean Hannity has been
a terrific, terrific supporter
of what I do, not of me. If I changed my views,
he wouldn’t be with me. Rush Limbaugh —
I think he’s a great guy. Here’s a guy who can speak
for three hours without a phone call.
Try doing that sometime. For three hours, he speaks. He’s got one of
the biggest audiences in the history of the world. I mean, this guy
is unbelievable. Try speaking for three hours
without taking calls. Taking calls is easy. “Okay, I’ll answer this one,
I’ll answer that one.” He goes for three hours, and he’s got an audience
that’s fantastic. -Should they be —
-Wait. -Should they be
deciding policy, sir? -They don’t decide policy. In fact, if I went opposite — I mean, they have somebody —
Ann Coulter. I don’t know her.
I hardly know her. I haven’t spoken to her
in way over a year. But the press loves saying
“Ann Coulter.” Probably, if I did speak to her,
she’d be very nice. I just don’t have the time
to speak to her. I would speak to her.
I have nothing against her. In fact, I like her
for one reason: When they asked her,
like right at the beginning, “Who is going to win
the election?” she said, “Donald Trump.” And the two people that asked
her that question smiled. They said, “You’re kidding,
aren’t you?” “Nope.
Donald Trump.” So I like her, but she’s off
the reservation. But anybody that knows
her understands that. But I haven’t spoken to her. I don’t follow her.
I don’t talk to her. But the press loves to bring up
the name Ann Coulter. And you know what?
I think she’s fine. I think she’s good,
but I just don’t speak to her. Laura has been great —
Laura Ingraham. Tucker
Carlson has been great. I actually have a couple
of people on CNN that have been very good.
I have some on MSNBC. The other day, they did
a great report on me. I say, “Where the hell did
that come from?” I think it was the only
one in over a year. So, the crazy thing is,
I just had, as you know, Rasmussen —
52% in the polls. It’s my highest poll number. And people get what we’re doing. They get it.
They really get it. And I’m honored by it. Yes, Jim Acosta. -Thank you, Mr.
President. I wonder if you could comment
on this disconnect that we seem to have
in this country, where you are
presenting information about what’s happening
at the border — calling it an invasion,
talking about women with duct tape
over their mouths, and so on — and yet there’s a lot
of reporting out there, there’s a lot of crime data
out there, there’s a lot of Department
of Homeland Security data out there
that shows border crossings at a near-record low —
-That’s because of us. But it’s still —
– That shows undocumented immigrants committing
crime at lower levels — -It’s still massive
numbers of crossings. -That shows undocumented
criminals — or undocumented immigrants
committing crime at lower levels
than native-born Americans. What do you say to —
-You don’t really believe that stat, do you?
Do you really believe that stat? -What do you —
Well, let me ask you this — -Take a look
at our federal prisons. -I believe in facts
and statistics and data, but — -Any more?
Quick, let’s go. -Let me just ask you this:
What do you say to your critics who say that you are creating
a national emergency, that you’re concocting
a national emergency here in order to get your wall, because you couldn’t get it
through other ways? -I ask the angel moms.
What do you think? Do you think
I’m creating something? Ask these incredible women, who lost their daughters
and their sons. -This is real.
-Okay? Because your question
is a very political question, because you have an agenda. You’re CNN, you’re fake news,
you have an agenda. The numbers that you gave
are wrong. Take a look at our federal
prison population. See how many of them,
percentagewise, are illegal aliens. Just see. Go ahead and see. It’s a fake question. Yes, go ahead. -Can I ask a follow-up? -Thank you, Mr.
President. Just to follow up on that,
unifying crime reporting statistics —
numbers from your own Border Patrol,
numbers from this government — show that the amount
of illegal immigrants are down, there is not violence
on the border, and that most — -There’s not violence
on the border? -There’s not
as much violence as — -Oh, really?
-Let me — Wait a minute, wait a minute.
-You had 26 people killed — -Let me finish
the question, please. Let me finish the question,
please. -Two weeks ago,
26 people were killed in a gunfight on the border — -I understand
what you’re saying. -A mile away from where I went.
-I was there. I understand.
That’s not the question. The question is —
-Do we forget about that? -No, I’m not forgetting
about it. I’m asking you to clarify
where you get your numbers, because most of the DEA crime
reporting statistics that we see show that drugs
are coming across at the ports of entry,
that illegal immigration is down,
and the violence is down. -Okay.
-So, what do you base your facts on? -Okay, let me —
Come on, let’s go. -And, secondly —
-No, no, you get one. -Well, the second question is —
-Just sit down. Wait, sit down.
sit down. -Could you please answer it?
-Sit down. You get one question. I get my numbers
from a lot of sources — like Homeland Security,
primarily. And the numbers that I have
from Homeland Security are a disaster. And you know what else
is a disaster? The numbers that come out
of Homeland Security, Kirstjen, for the cost that we spend
and the money that we lose because of illegal immigration
— billions and billions
of dollars a month. Billions and billions
of dollars. And it’s unnecessary. -So your own government stats
are wrong, are you saying? -No, no, I use many stats. -Could you share
those stats with us? -Let me tell you, you have stats
that are far worse than the ones that I use. But I use many stats, but I
also use Homeland Security. All right, next question.
-And do you — Wait a minute. Just a quick follow-up.
-Go ahead — no — go, please. -Thank you, Mr.
President. I just want to bring you back
to China for a second. The White House put out
a statement today talking about
the March 1st deadline. The other day, though,
you gave the possibility that maybe this could slide. Are you eyeing
a possible extension — 30 days, maybe 60 days? What is the status there?
-Very good question. So it’s a very big deal. I guess you could say
it’s like — must be the biggest
deal ever made. If you think, trade with China,
how big does that get? Although if you look,
the USMCA is right up there. But it’s very complicated. There are many, many points
that we’re bringing up that nobody ever brought up
or thought to bring up, but they’re very important,
because we were on the wrong side
of every one of them. There is a possibility
that I will extend the date. And if I do that, if I see that
we’re close to a deal or the deal is going
in the right direction, I would do that at the same
tariffs that we’re charging now. I would not increase
the tariffs. -Let me also ask you
about the debt, sir, because it’s gone from a shade
under $20 trillion from when you took office. Now it’s a shade
over $22 trillion, and heading in
the wrong direction. What are your plans
to reverse it? -Well, it’s all about growth.
But before I — -Growth only? –Really focus on that —
and you have to remember, President Obama put on more debt
on this country than every President in the
history of our country combined. So, when I took over,
we had one man that put on more debt than
every other President combined. Combine them all. So you can’t be
talking about that. But I talk about it because
I consider it very important. But, first, I have to
straighten out the military. The military was depleted. And if we don’t have
a strong military — that, hopefully, we won’t have
to use because it’s strong — if we don’t have
a strong military, you don’t have to worry about
debt; you have bigger problems. So I have to straighten out
the military. That’s why I did the
$700 billion and $716 billion. But growth will
straighten it out. You saw last month,
the trade deficit went way down. Everybody said, “What happened?” Well, what’s happening
is growth. But before I can focus too much
on that, a very big expense is military. And we have no choice but to
straighten out our military. -Is growth the only answer, sir,
or is [inaudible]? -Yes, ma’am, go ahead. -Thank you, Mr.
President. On North Korea,
back on the last summit, you guys came out with
a pretty general agreement. -Yes.
-I was wondering what you thought has, you know, been accomplished
since the last summit. And then —
-A lot. -Are we going to be seeing
anything concrete on denuclearization? -A lot has been accomplished. We’re dealing with them,
we’re talking to them. When I came into office,
I met right there, in the Oval Office,
with President Obama. And I sat in those
beautiful chairs and we talked. It was supposed to be
15 minutes. As you know, it ended up being
many times longer than that. And I said,
“What’s the biggest problem?” He said, “By far, North Korea.” And I don’t want to speak
for him, but I believe he would have gone
to war with North Korea. I think he was ready
to go to war. In fact, he told me
he was so close to starting a big war
with North Korea. And where are we now? No missiles, no rockets,
no nuclear testing. We’ve learned a lot. But much more importantly
than all of it — much more important —
much, much more important than that
is we have a great relationship. I have a very good relationship
with Kim Jong-un. And I’ve done a job. In fact, I think
I can say this — Prime Minister Abe of Japan
gave me the most beautiful copy of a letter
that he sent to the people who give out a thing
called the Nobel Prize. He said, “I have nominated you,” or “Respectfully,
on behalf of Japan, I am asking them to give you
the Nobel Peace Prize.” I said, “Thank you.” Many other people feel
that way, too. I’ll probably never get it,
but that’s okay. They gave it to Obama. He didn’t even know
what he got it for. He was there for about
15 seconds, and he got the Nobel Prize. He said, “Oh, what
did I get it for?” With me, I probably
will never get it. But if you look at
Idlib Province in Syria, I stopped the slaughter
of perhaps 3 million people. Nobody talk about that. They don’t talk about that. Russia and Iran and Syria
were going to go in and perhaps destroy
3 million people in order to get
45,000 terrorists. And I heard about it
from a woman who had her parents and her brothers living there,
and she said, “Please, please.” And I thought — I said,
“No, it can’t happen. What are you talking about?”
“No, they’re going to get –” And I come home,
and I read a certain paper where the story was there
that they were actually forming to go into — to really —
to really do big destruction. And I put out a statement that,
“You better not do it.” And in all fairness to Russia
and Iran and Syria, they didn’t attack. Or they’re doing it surgically,
at least. Saved a lot of people. We do a lot of good work. This administration
does a tremendous job, and we don’t get credit for it. But I think the people
understand what we do. So, Prime Minister Abe
gave me — I mean, it’s the most beautiful
five-letter — five-page letter. Nobel Prize —
he sent it to them. You know why? Because he had rocket ships
and he had missiles flying over Japan,
and they had alarms going off. You know that. Now, all of a sudden,
they feel good, they feel safe. I did that. And it was a very tough dialogue
at the beginning — fire and fury,
total annihilation, “My button is bigger than yours”
and “my button works.” Remember that?
You don’t remember that. And people said,
“Trump is crazy.” And you know
what it ended up being? A very good relationship. I like him a lot,
and he likes me a lot. Nobody else
would have done that. The Obama administration
couldn’t have done it. Number one, they probably
wouldn’t have done it. And number two, they didn’t
have the capability to do it. So I just want to thank
everybody. I want to wish our new Attorney General great luck and speed,
and enjoy your life. Bill, good luck. A tremendous reputation. I know you’ll do a great job.
Thank you very much. And thank you, everybody.
Thank you very much. Thank you.

100 thoughts on “Trump’s full speech declaring a national emergency for border wall funding

  1. I love our president. I love his family and love him as a human being. God bless em. Happy Presidents’ Day (first time ever saying that).

  2. Hate it or love it. The truth hurts. A wall will work. So put your views aside about Trump. Accept that you voted him. And let him do his work. It’s working. So stop the fake news

  3. i agree 100%. the Pill farms, quack DRs and street dealers need either life in prison with no chance of parole or the death penalty their choice !!!!! I am so sick of the BS in this country ! Liberals and paid off politicians have cut the dick and balls off our Great country !!! we have become a lipstick wearing waxed balled eagle tranny of a nation ! no wonder all the other nuclear powers laugh at us !

  4. He knows it all, not his generals, not his hand picked administration. He should just fire every one and run the country himself. "Heil Trump".

  5. This guy is insane and i find it frightening he still has people who believe him, instead of actual facts and statistics.

  6. A president who does not put on a show to please the media but puts on a jacket to work for the people whether some love him or hate him.

  7. As a speech and debate coach listening to this guy gives me a headache. Completely irrespective of politics I cannot fathom for the life of me how anybody is convinced by his incoherent rambling.

  8. When you Die you will leave all your Vanities behind. When you Die you will leave the Country with the wall behind . your Racists behavior are just Temporary

  9. the reason we hear that drug only come through ports of entry is because, those the illegals smuggling through open spaces, are not caught, or very difficult to caught. Here is San Diego, the border patrol found a drug smuggling house. There were tunnels under the earth for miles. You could not believe to what extent these smugglers will go to get the drugs in the USA

  10. God he's such a fucktard, it's painful to watch a dumpster fire everytime he gives a speech. It's embarrassing to see him on the national stage.

  11. We want to stop drugs coming into this country so I will pull money from the anti narcotics budget to build a useless wall. This fucktard is an embarrassment to the entire world.

  12. 22:16 I saw this on Twitter and thought someone just edited the pitch as a joke. That's actually how he really delivered it? Jesus

  13. Nobody could open a dialog with NK. He was tough and strong..not only got the bowl-head-boy to the table but now NK and SK have a regular dialog for the first time in 50+ years… NK was and still is our #1 threat. Make no mistake… Our steel is also a matter of National security which is so complex I can't explain here. Which in turn boosts the production of coke (fuel) needed to fire steel. Which boosted coal production. steel is needed almost everywhere with the new factories coming back home. BTW Coal is Not a bad fuel pollution wise if the Newest scrubbing technologies are used. It gets a bad rap from The left.. The product will burn clean and consume itself almost entirely (some as much as 92%) with the by-product being ecologically safe and needed in other areas. So nothing goes unused. (Despite Leftest arguments using old technology reports.) This wall is needed in key areas and has been for last 4 elections. I hate seeing the National Emergency act used on it though. I just wished everybody could drop damn politics and just build the wall. Everyone knows we need it. And if Central America folds totally economically those Caravans are going to be a lot higher then in the thousands. At that point the wall will desperately be needed. Let's build it as a security measure while we're working on propping up Central and South America economically. The real poll show at 74% of the people want it. And that's not a Fox News or a CNN poll. But put it through Congress and do it right.

  14. I wonder if, while inventing democracy, the Greeks ever considered the possibility that an ignorant, stupid, self-centered, moronic clown like Trump would become president at some point in history… SAD!!!

  15. Ok this move is reminiscent of an autocrat in the making , but I just can't believe this particular person despite his flaws, and this particular country will actually become some kind of corrupt South American, African or Russian dictatorship.

  16. Im still trying to give this man a chance, but its tough when he declares a national emergency and says "I didnt need to do this, but Id rather do it much faster"

  17. LMAO! I will miss Trump. He's one of the funniest idiots with a lot of good ideas to destroy America. sorry for you folks!

  18. Look at the beaty little eyes you can see its deception it's all for a plan. Not for us the people. Abraham Lincoln said he feared for his people from a tyranny and he wasnt around anymore to tell people why.. Wake up people.

  19. I can understand why people would think they like him. Just like Obama. It's trying to reach the normal average American Citizen and what we feel and that we are ignored and we need protection and realizations of issues but it's just a speech. It's all for something else not us. It never has been and never will be. WAKE UP PEOPLE! Ephesians 6:12 King James Version (KJV)

    12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    King James Version (KJV)

    GOD BLESS US ALL AND I HOPE WE ALL OPEN OUR EYES THROUGH THIS AND SEE THE TRUTH.

  20. Also the reporter he attacked because he asked if he was concocting and making things seem worse to get his wall, he attacked him a nd said it's fake news. It's not fake news. He wont answer the questions because A. WHERE IS THE PROOF THAT THERE IS A THREAT SEVERE ENOUGH TO DECLARE NATIONAL EMERGENCY B. HE PLAYS ON A FEW VISTIMS FAMILYS SYMPATHY TO MAKE HIS PLIT C THEY WILL NEVER ANSWER QUESTIONS THEY CAN NOT BACK UP WITH REAL EVIDENCE NOT JUST A FEW STORIES BUT SOLID PROOF. THERE ARE WAY MORE IMPORTANT ISSUES AT HAND THEN THIS. TO QUOTE MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN YOU WOULD LISTEN TO ALL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NOT FOLLOW SOME AGENDA MEANT TO DESTROY AND STOP READING OFF THE HIDDEN I PAD HE OBVIOUSLY KEEPS LOOKING DOWN. ANYTHING FAKE NEWS IS SOMETHING THEY WON'T ANSWER

  21. Is he underscoring the severity of his national emergency decision or playing it down? I can't tell. It's like he's saying, "yeah, I'll be diverting billions of dollars out of government funding, but don't worry, no one's cared in the past!"

  22. The Prime Minister of Japan apparently nominated Donald Trump for the Nobel prize. [49:01] "You know why? Because he had rocket ships and missiles flying over Japan." No. The reason Abe nominated you is because your administration made a point to ask Abe to nominate you. And "rocket ships"? Does the DPRK even have a space program?

  23. I live by the border in AZ and he is flat out lying.
    This is a rally, not a press conference. Praising himself, putting down others with the kind of language and speech pattern one uses when talking to 2nd Graders. SMH

  24. I can’t believe that he said that he didn’t have to this, but that it would make the process of building the wall quicker! Declaring a national emergency means that you do HAVE to do it, there is no other way, and that it’s an absolute emergency. For example 911 or hurricane Karina. This is an abuse of presidential powers, and is absolutely insane!

  25. Pretty rambly but I think it's the first time he's used notes. He's trying to do the job properly since everybody can't get over the fact that he's not a typical politician. But, I've noticed that he generally is not a cruel man. I think he cares about the human trafficking more than he lets on. If nothing was going on at the border, the Mexicans wouldn't be digging tunnels as fast as they can if there was nothing going on. Some of those tunnels are really nice, high enough to stand in with junctions. Do you know how hard it is to tunnel? You can bet your bottom dollar that there is something bad going on down there.

  26. Is he on crack or meth? He is talking about keeping out drug dealing illegal criminals and his own illegal alien grandfather sold drugs and was a pimp!

  27. I know Trump does not know how to manage money but in the government you can't just steal money from parts just to get your way, the man child needs to go he is delusional and I see why he has gone bankrupt six times it's very easy to see the man has no creativity except for that singing bit that was pretty good lol.

  28. i just heard trump spill out something that's not talked about it's the supply of military weapons to police departments around the country. the weapons supplied would include weapons of mass destruction tanks, grenades just what ever they want all that can be and more than likely will be used on the american people our police are not trained in law but instead urban warfare you see there plan is to control the american people by force and death

  29. where is the emergency declared for homelessness???? we have cities that look like third world conditions, while we have more than 18 million homes sitting EMPTY

  30. I agree this is not trumps best performance, but in the end he is still doing something about this problem that has been kicked down the road . I remember on 9/11, 18 years ago i was in an elevator with mostly Democrats and they were deeply concerned about the security of this country. Now they want open borders, gender neutrality, late term abortions, socialism and Medicare for all? I don’t even think Democrats know who they are anymore let alone where they are headed.

  31. President, RESPECT! Even if my own body is destroyed, if the next generation will be better, let 's die dearly heartily, if it thinks crazy it would be crazy! I think myself that it is better than the media of the current professional career

  32. Talk about a wall always reminds me of China. Then there was Hadrian's Wall. The Chinese used convict slave labor to build theirs. Now that's a lot of slavery. Walls are not an effective defense. The offer some border control. The real wall is the police and border patrols. These have been been neutered by liberal public policy. Other than that, it is a nice symbol. Remember the Maginot Line? It held up well, but the Germans went around it. The missile defense system is similar. Technology obsolesces such things. Ever see a flying saucer? Ultimate missile defense. Of course they don't exist. Neither did the Bomb until it went off. UFOS at the AFB gate shut down at least one missile command in the USA. In Russia, a UFO spun up a missile launch. They managed to turn it off with fire axes or something. So the wall is largely for a false sense of security. Maybe it will pare down the numbers. Curious MOSLEM infiltration gets no mention. Has the Muslim Brotherhood Mein Kampf been forgotten?

  33. Trump is really smart if u haven’t figured out why he declare emergency
    U see what obama did in Mideast with his regime change aka Arab spring created millions of refugees flooding Europe Asia n America, esp europe
    Trump gonna do the same thing but to South America, Venezuela, so wall will stop the refugees if Venezuela becoming Syria
    Imagine South America becoming Syria, Libya, it will be like zombie apocalypse at southern border so USA need a very strong wall to keep them out

  34. Dear Mr president Trump . ..we HAVE SOMETHING FAR MORE greater TO WORRY ABOUT THAN A WALL BUT A WALL SHOULD BE ON A TOP FIVE LIST. NUMBER ONE SOULD BE TO STOP OIL DRILLING AND NUMBER TWO SHOULD BE FRACKING FOR NATURAL GAS . IT DOSENT TAKE A GENIUS TO REALIZE IF YOU TAKE 20.OO00 GALLENS OF OIL FROM WITHIN THE EART THAT ALONE LEAVES A HUGE VOID AND THEIR IS NO WONDER SINK HOLES ARE OPENING ALL OVER THE WORLD AND LAKES AND RIVERS ARE DISSAPEARING COMPLETELY . AT THIS POINT THE EARTH IS LIKE A HUGE CHUNK OF SWISS CHEESE .AND YOU WONDER WHY SO MANY CATOSTROPHIC THINGS ARE HAPPENING MORE FREQUENTLY LIKE EARTHQUAKES AND VALCANO ERUPTIONS AND BAD AND MYSTERIOUS WEATHER . AND ELECTROMAGNETIC DISTURBANCE OUT OF CONTROL ACTUALLY IT MAY BE TO LATE ANYWAY MAYBE EVEN PAST THE POINT OF NO RETURN .WICH THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR EARTH COLLAPSING AND CAUSING MAJOR TSUNAMIS ARE PEOPLE SO MONEY HUNGRY THAT THE DON'T REALIZE THEY ARE DESTROYING THE VERY THING THAT KEEPS EVERYONE OF US ALIVE AND STABLE AS A MATTER OF FACT THE OIL WAS IN THBE EARTH FOR A REASON AND OF THE STRANGE SOUNDS PEOPLE ARE HEARING ALL OVER THE WORLD IS THE EARTH CORE STILL TRYING TO SPIN THE WAY GOD INTENDED AND RUN LIKE A WELL OILED MACHINE BUT!!! WITHOUT THE OIL THAT WAS IN THE EARTH IT CAN NO LONGER FUNCTION PROPERLY . FOR INSTANCE WHAT HAPPENES IF YOU BOUGHT A BRAND NEW CAR AND DROVE IT EVERY DAY BUT NEVER PUT OIL IN IT ?????

  35. According to the Center for Immigration Studies:

    There are currently 26 states (half the country) providing 174 sanctuary cities/counties which account for 334 electoral college votes. Keep in mind that only 270 are needed to win the presidency. Are you aware that Democrats voted yesterday on a bill that would ensure the voting rights of illegal "immigrants."

    The Democrat party has declared war on the citizens of the United States. The structure is already in place. The border is wide open, immigration laws are impotent, and Illegal "immigrants" are flooding these territories at record numbers. They are poised to steal the 2020 election and control every election thereafter, effectively reducing the U.S. to a single party socialist dictatorship with the Democrat party in complete and total control.

    The crisis at the border is real.
    The crisis at the border is a manufactured crisis.
    The crisis at the border is a politically motivated crisis.

    And the facts clearly show who created it, why, and to what end.

    But no, you go ahead and post another duck face…it's important…

    Share this with everyone you know or you will look like a Hillary supporter in 2016 as your states electoral college votes go to the Democrat party! Trump cannot get re-elected without YOUR help.

  36. He talks like he's actually doing something unbelievable it almost seems like he's dividing and breaking everything down. We the People united we stand divided we fall

  37. You are the only one who thinks uou are doing a good job and you are not stipid to think the. People are stupid。Remove the N. Korean san tions and you need not worry about denuclearisation. Also illegal sanctions for Iran and Russia. You are creating crime and destruction of otherwise thriving economies like Russian s. I would advice Russia and Iran do the same to D Trump. The increase in excise tax to protect domestic industries is daylight robbery. Worst than Somali prirates. American thieves ans plunderers. Becoming a rogue state.CHAMPION of everything bad and evil. The wrath of God will wipe AMERICA from the world map because of this mad president.

  38. Forget about the boarder prison boy what about your fraudulent tax return ! All the Republitards will be saying I knew it all the time he was self made criminal !!!

  39. I can't believe all the ignorant comments. I don't know why he even tries. It seems like people actually want this country to go to hell, practically begging for it even. Amazes me how uneducated and misinformed people are, by the time they realize their mistakes, it will be too late.

  40. TRUMP lied about his National Emergency to stop the caravans from invading America. Now, 1,000 illegal immigrants are being sent to Miami Florida once a month, 1,000 are going to Buffalo New York once a month, thousands are being bussed into Arizona and thousands are being bussed into New Mexico. Also, 1,000 a month are going to be flown into 2 separate counties in Florida too. Thanks TRUMP, you will NOT get my vote in 2020.

  41. It still amazes me that Democrats still do not understand this speech.

    Drugs bad, gangs bad, and illegals who use up our resources are bad. You have to speak to Dem's like they are five year olds.

  42. In the United States, the government debt reached $ 22 trillion on Tuesday local time, a new record. This appears from data from the Ministry of Finance.
    In particular, the tax cuts from President Donald Trump, who approved Congress in December 2017, caused the debt to rise sharply recently.

    US government debt has been swelling for decades and growth has been accelerating among several presidents in recent years. There are disagreements among economists about when that government debt will begin to weigh on the US economy.
