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
That’s great news and I appreciate the heads up. Thanks so much and I now look forward to it again.
[insert crude joke about what Biden and Alyssa Milano have in common here]
I am not interested in an Obamacare replacement. Why would anyone want more Government involvement?
After the changes at the VA, changes in permitted uses of tax-advantaged health reimbursement accounts(HRAs), the changing rules requiring medical price transparency and the decrease in drug prices as well as a movement to require the USA to have favored Nation pricing I would sat POTUS has had a significant impact. If Congress cooperated in the slightest even more would have be done.
Trump’s small-business health insurance plan was excellent but was stymied by a judge. We will see whether it resurfaces. If Noname had not gave America the finger there would be no Obamacare and the small business plan would be in force.
I’m going to the Rally in Dallas on the 17th and can’t wait.
Let me tell you, read that short Q&A, this is a great President, he’s just flat out great.
Every line he says, “Like a Boss.” Just a great fighter for America.
...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...
And there it is.
If youve ever wondered how members of Congress and elected office holders all across the country become multi-millionaires overnight, you have your answer.
It’s like Trump is playing Whack-A-RAT, as these candidates fall by the wayside one by one.
You’re very welcome for the heads up.
Hope your favorite team wins this evening.
