Trump resumes news conference after shooting outside White House
President Trump was pulled away from the podium Monday during a briefing with the media when a shooting happened outside the White House. Within minutes, he returned to resume that update.
thing is probably pretty unusual, but, uh so it seems to me it seems to be from what I was said, there was a shooting. It was law enforcement shot. Someone seems to be the suspect, and the suspect is now in the way to the hospital. I can't tell you the condition of the suspect. There was nobody else injured. There was no other law enforcement injured. And I just want I will get on to the press conference. But I do want to thank Secret Service that they are fantastic job. They do. From what? I understand the interest. Yes, that's what I understand. I don't You have to ask weapons. You'll have to get. They'll have. They'll have a detailed, maybe a briefing for you outside later. I don't know. I didn't ask that question. It might not have had anything to do with me. It might have been something else, but it was on the outside of the premises. The world the as you know, the fencing, especially the new fencing that they put up, is very powerful. But it was on the outside of the White House. Okay. And they'll have a full report secret service. In a little while, we'll have a full report. I seem rattled. It's unfortunate that this is a world, but the world's always been a dangerous place. It's not something that's unique in the world has been. You look back over the centuries, the world has been a dangerous place, very dangerous place. And, uh, it will continue, I guess, for a period of time. This is differently about your personal safety inside the White House. No, I feel very safe with Secret Service. They're fantastic people. They're the best of the best, and they're highly trained. I don't know if anybody got to walk outside, but there were a lot of terrific looking people ready to go if something was necessary. People at the highest level of law enforcement, there's nobody like these people. So they just wanted me to step aside for a little while just to make sure that everything was cleared outside because it was right in this area. So why did you decide after that? Has obviously created a lot of commotion. What made you decide to come back and continue to breathe? Well, I didn't even think about not coming back, I said. am I able to go back? And they said you'd have to wait a little while. I waited a little while is, you know, in the are Oval Office area. And, uh, I said, can I get back down? They said yes. And they have a lot of fortification as just in case, but it was one person was outside. How far? We're going to be giving you a full briefing in a little while. I can only tell you they're gonna give you a briefing. It was outside of the premises near the fence, but outside of the progress is so pretty. Pretty. So I was telling you that the Dow Jones on the S and P 500 or now 50% above the March level NASDAQ is setting new records. It's already broken the record. Despite the situation of having the China virus we have, new jobs are rising and unemployment is falling faster than nearly anyone thought. And over the past three months, we've created over nine million jobs, and that's a record of three months record. If you add it up, it's a three month record by far, and we've beaten expectations by 12 million or 12 million above expectations, which is pretty remarkable today. We had great reports on new job openings on There's clearly a housing boom, which has been incredible numbers in both housing and an automobile boom. We've rarely seen anything like it, and it's going on right now. In America, inventories are at rock bottom, used car sales or record levels. Then we will have rebuilt. We're doing a rebuilding like nobody's ever seen. It's a big plus for manufacturing and construction. So constructions getting close to record territory manufacturing's doing very well. The car companies are doing great, very happy for Michigan, the state of Michigan. We have a lot of car companies moving in. A lot of plants are being built and expanded in Michigan and Ohio. There is no reason why the economy can grow at a 20% pace in the third quarter. That would be a record, and interestingly, it will be a number that's going to be announced before November 3rd. It gets announced probably around November 1st, which is very interesting, but it's it's going to grow in a very substantial pace based on all of the numbers we're looking at and probably a lot more substantial than we originally thought. We're creating new incentives or work in jobs that were also providing much needed assistance to those who are still suffering from the effects of the pandemic. Contraction. And the contraction is now. Well, we have the pandemic. We have a lot of great things happening in terms of the vaccines, and therapeutics is, you know, I think will be making tremendous progress over the next period, off a few months and certainly before the end of the year. I think we'll have a A vaccine before the end of the year, very substantially. And we may have a therapeutic resolve. Mint very quickly, very, very quickly. And frankly, that's the one I'd rather have faster. Because you go in, you give a transfusion or a shot two people that are very ill and they'd be able to come out of the hospital the next day or a few days later. If the States participate in our core sharing unemployment plan, we are going to be doing something very, very interesting. With all of the things that we announced on Saturday. I have to repeat what they are, you know very well we've had. We've had some tremendous success already. If you look at what's happening with the stock market and people are very thrilled at what we're doing, we'd like to get the Democrats, too focus on other than what they're focusing on, which is a bailout of poorly running states that many great running said states that are setting records and, uh, let's see what happens with respect to that. But Thea, we're looking at also considering a capital gains tax cut, which would create a lot more jobs. So we're looking very seriously they capital gains tax cut and also, uh, at an income tax cut for middle income families. We're looking at expanding the tax cuts that we've already done, but specifically for middle income families, and you'll be hearing about that in the upcoming a few weeks and I think it'll be very exciting. So capital gains tax is going to be a lot of a lot of people put the work and it would be a cut in the capital gains tax and also a cut in the bill income income tax. So I now want to just discuss ah little quick brief and then we'll take a few more questions, but we took some who wouldn't know we were gonna take questions before we started. Right that right, Jennifer. But that's the way it happened. Sometimes we want to discuss if we might. The China virus and the world continues its fight against this horrible plague. Countries in every continent are seeing increases in cases. We have a rapid increase only in cases where it's very interesting because we're so far ahead of testing. We have more cases. If we had much more, testing would have fewer. But we feel that having testing is a very important thing. It's a great a great record toe have in many ways, we we've tested, I guess close to 65 million people right now and nobody's even close to that number. No other country is close. India would be second at 11 million and they have 1.5 billion people. So we, uh we have the number one testing anywhere in the world by far, and we also have, I think, the highest quality test. We have a lot of different ones, but we have the highest quality, including the short term in the lab test lab tests take a little bit longer, and Dr Berks was telling me a little while ago that we're down to two days and 2.5 days on getting your result on the lab test. The other ones. You get him in five minutes to 15 minutes, so that's exciting. But countries in every continent are seeing increases in cases in recent days. Cases of rapidly increase in Japan and Australia, unfortunately, and they're now experiencing higher peaks that they did in March to the south of the border of our border. Cases have continued to surge in Mexico, Central America, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Brazil and throughout Latin America. Truly the hot spot. It's posing a major challenge for this continent. Latin America is now the region with the most number of confirmed cases by far, despite a relative scarcity of testing. So when you think of that, that means it's, uh, it's pretty much on fire having a hard time, and we're helping them. We're sending them tremendous numbers of ventilators which were making by the thousands every month, and we're helping Latin America very much. It's hard for them to come into the country because we have big sections of wall up. Now the new wall is being built, which people don't talk about. They used to talk about nothing but the wall now that it's being built. They're not talking about it so much. But it's helped us goes, were up to almost. We're getting close to 280 miles, 280 miles in the most important areas. So that's helping us a lot in terms of not having people come in tow the country who are infected with the Corona virus. This global trend underscores the persistence of the virus, including in nations that apply the strictest and most punishing lockdowns. You have nations that are really tough one the lockdowns, and they're getting hit very hard. That's why my administration is pursuing a science based approach that protects the most vulnerable preserves hospital capacity and focuses on the delivery and development of treatments and ultimately, the vaccine. I feel strongly that we will have a vaccine by the end of the year and it will be put in service, maybe even as we get it, because we're all set militarily. We're using our military to distribute the vaccine and logistically, there's nobody like this group of people. I meet with them a lot and they're ready to go. As soon as they have it, they'll be going. But more importantly, the therapeutics, As I said, I think the therapeutics could be great. Initially speaking, I think that would be I had my choice. But you can have them both. You're gonna have them both. You can have it both very soon, too. At the same time, we urge all Americans to apply common sense mitigation. You'll know what that mitigation is. Everybody knows it by heart. Now, nearly half of all of the deaths from the China virus in the United States have occurred in nursing homes and long term care facilities. That's why we have delivered funding equipment and rapid testing to our nation's nursing homes to protect those at high risk. We're very focused on nursing homes and senior citizens areas anywhere that we have seen your citizen to a very, very focused. We've delivered over 1800 rapid point of care testing devices. Those are very quick and shipped over 700,000 tests to nursing homes. Nursing homes are being protected like never before the United States faces a unique range of challenges that requires our constant vigilance. America is the largest at risk population of any developed country, by far 1.5 million residents of nursing homes about five times out of the United Kingdom and other European countries. Our country also has a higher prevalence of underlying conditions at this virus targets. Yet we have fewer deaths for Capita than the United Kingdom and most other peer nations in Western Europe. So that's an important. We have fewer deaths per capita than the United Kingdom and most other nations in Western Europe and heading for even stronger numbers. But one person is too much, as far as I'm concerned. Should have never been allowed to happen. Should have never been allowed to escape China nationwide. We continue to see encouraging signs. In the last seven days, nationwide cases declined by 14% hospitalizations decreased by 7% fatalities decreased by 9%. Arizona and Florida improving rapidly, with fewer patients coming to emergency rooms by far as well as decreasing cases, decreasing fatalities and expected and expanded hospital capacity. So we have an expanded hospital capacity. It's, uh it's pretty dramatic when you look at it, meaning we have more room should we need it. So a lot of tremendous work has been done in Texas. Likewise, the number of patients going to emergency rooms has dropped from July by more than 2/3. That's a lot. Nevertheless, we continue to monitor Texas very closely. Terrific governor, terrific people working on that whole situation in Texas, especially at its test positivity rate, which rose over 20% this weekend. Overall cases in Texas air coming down and have stabilized in the border County's. That's again, where you have the wall and your next Teoh, in some cases, the wall. In some cases, you'll have it very shortly. You'll have it all built within a number of months. But those areas were hit very hard, and they're likely cases from Mexico that come in back and forth from the border to come in legally. As doctors have found more effective ways to treat patients, the fatality rate continues to improve. Texas has won six the fatality rate of New York and New Jersey that they had in April and the you look at New York and New Jersey. They worked very very hard but very heavy density and a lot of different kinds of difficulty. The fatality rates in Florida and Arizona are between 25 33% of the peak rates of New York and New Jersey. Again different different climate, a different grouping, the different density tremendously different density. In California, the situation is starting to stabilize and improve. Throughout the major metropolitan areas. Statewide hospitalizations continued to decline very substantially, with about 20% fewer in patients Now. Then, on July 21st California starting to really show signs of correcting. We're monitoring regions with increasing cases, including Boston, Chicago and the Midwest, and we're monitoring them very, very strongly and very, very hard. I do want to say that, uh, I think at the end of a fairly short period of time, you're gonna be in very, very good shape all over our country. Every loss of life is tragic, and all nations must work together to defeat this horrible virus. My administration is going to continue to save as many lives as possible. We are working round the clock. Everybody of It's incredible how hard they're working, and people from other countries were working with them. Also, when they're working very hard, this is something that's now attacked 188 different countries. There are a wide range of factors that determine how the virus impacts the nation, such as age underlining conditions. Underlying conditions is a very big one of you. If you're sick in any way, If you're especially, they say heart and diabetes, that's not a good thing to have you, uh, if you're going to have this, if you're going to catch it. So we're trying to protect especially those people that have problems with their heart or diabetes and levels of pre existing immunity resulting from past exposure to other viruses, which happens. We must stop politicizing the virus and instead be united in our condemnation of how this virus came to America, how this virus came to the world, and we're going to figure it out and we're gonna find out, and we're very angry about it. On the therapeutics and vaccine updates, three vaccine candidates are currently in phase three clinical trials, something that would have been impossible under the previous administration or any other administration and several others a showing considerable promise. We have great companies, very well known companies. I think everyone in this room would know these companies, but they're the biggest and the best in the world, and we're working with other foreign countries, companies and countries that have have been really working very closely with us. We're trading. We're not looking Teoh. Do anything would come up with the answer and we really don't. We don't care. We want to come up with the answer. It's one of ours or one of theirs. It's OK. We have to come up with the answer and were very close to getting it. Some people think we have it. We may have it. We have the best scientists in the world racing to develop a safe vaccine that will end this pandemic, save millions of lives, and that's millions of lives all over the world and end the harm inflicted by this virus to our society and all other nations. Last week, the N. I H began a clinical trial of rendez Severe, paired with another approved antiviral drug and anti inflammatory drug. You know that room death severe has been very successful and now they're experimenting with others, including anti virals and anti inflammatories, and they're having some very interesting success. We've secured enough room de severe to treat over 650,000 patients. On Saturday, I took executive action in its signing to save American jobs and support American workers. I signed directives to give a payroll tax holiday with the understanding that after the election on the assumption that it would be victorious for an administration has done a great job. Uh, we will be ending that tax will be terminating that tax. On the other hand, the other group wants to raise taxes, and they may want to leave it. Will you pay it? But the payroll tax is a big deal for people. It's a tremendous saving for people, and we're going to be doing it, and we intend to terminated at the end of the appropriate period of time. It's for those making less than $100,000 to the end of 2020 to provide an extra $400 per week also in unemployment benefits and to extend the freeze on home evictions. We want to extend the freeze so people aren't evicted. It's not their fault that the virus came from China its China's fault and to suspend payments on student loans through the end of the year and then beyond and again, you know, they're paying interest on loans and they're not allowed to go to their college. So we're going to suspend payments on student loans through the end of the year and then another extension, most likely because it's not fair to the students to to have to pay when colleges aren't doing the job of getting open. And I think probably many of them could be open. So I want to thank you all. I'm sorry for the disturbance before things happen. And, uh, if you like, we take a few questions. Yeah, President appreciated. Haley said earlier today that you've been working around the clock, so there's no delay to get these investment unemployment payments to Americans. Can you give me your timetable? Are we talking next week? Two weeks a month. So, Mr Secretary, you're saying when with a weaker to, most of the states will be able to execute the way. Gentlemen, you know everybody you know Russell, you know. But this is Scott Atlas. Do you know that God is a very famous man who's also very highly respected Stanford, and he's working with us and we'll be working with us on the Corona virus. And he has, uh, many great ideas. And he thinks what we've done is really good, and that will take it to a new level. And so it's great to have Scott working along with us, and we appreciate it very much. Thank you very much, really. We've had some great discussions, if you don't mind. Convention states have all the governor signed onto this. Uh, we just had a meeting with governors and they were very anxious to get money for the people in their states. And if they depending on the state, we have the right to do what we want to do, we can terminate the 25% or we don't have to do that. So we'll see what it is depends on the individual state. But a lot of money will be going to a lot of people very quickly. And I've instructed the Secretary of the Treasury to move as quickly as you can, right? So we'll get it done yet. Please. I wanted to just ask you to be here on the incident outside. There's a fairly significant perimeter around the White House that does it concern you at all that someone threw his arm was able to get so close that you needed to be? I don't know. He was closer. He or she? I don't know. It was a year she But, uh, I have such confidence in these people. They're so good and I don't think the person breached anything was on the outside ground, so I don't believe anything was breached. I asked that question so they were relatively far away. Virus. 97,000 Children tested positive for the virus in the last two weeks in July, according to Paediatrics. Give you any pause about schools reopening for in person because they may have, as you would call it, a case and maybe a case. But it's also a case where there is a tiny it's a tiny fraction death a tiny fraction, and, uh, they get better very quickly. Yeah, they have. They may have it for a short period of time, but as you know, the the seriousness of it in terms of what it leads to is is extraordinarily small, very, very much less than 1% believe that are essentially, Yeah, I think that for the most part, they do very well. I mean, they don't get very sick. They don't catch it easily. They don't get very sick. And according to the people that I've spoken to, they don't transported or transfer it to other people. Uh, we're certainly not very easily so yeah, I think schools have to open. We want to get our economy going. We have incredible numbers. Despite this, if we could get this going, I think it's a very important thing for the economy to get the school's going. Jonathan going Miss President in Ohio a few days ago, you said Joe Biden has hurt. He's against God. The vice president has said that he's a man of deep captain faith that credited for helping him endure. And that's personal tragedy. So So what did you mean by that? You say that your father's against Well, if you look at the manifesto that that they've come up with and if you look at their stance on religion and things having to do very importantly, with aspects of religion and faith, I don't think a man of deep religion would be agreeing to the Bernie Centers plan. You take a look at what they have in, and you just you can't put that into the realm of a religious group of people. I will say that. And I think it's one of the reasons why if you look at polls, which I'm not a big believer in polls, I wouldn't if I was. I guess I wouldn't be standing here right now on. By the way, our poll numbers are going up very rapidly, as you know, and Josie going down very rapidly. He'll have to come out of the basement. It looks like pretty soon because that it's one of those things. But no, if you look at the manifesto, I call it the Manifesto. A lot of people are calling it the manifesto. My opinion. It's further left then where burning was before so normally he'd be left and you bring it somewhere a little bit toward the center. But some of the things that they have down there, and I'm not only talking terms of religion, I'm not talking, even in terms of religion. But some of the things they have in the agreement made. And this was an agreement made by Bernie Sanders and Joe. Uh, it's a terrible thing would be a terrible thing for a country. It will destroy our country. We will go into a depression. We will put on regulation. We will double in triple taxes. We will. It will be terrible for healthcare. Just terrible. You have 180 million people lose their healthcare. It will be a terrible, terrible thing for a country. Okay, Yeah. Please ask your question about something you said in Bedminster as well. He said that you're planning to issue an executive order to ensure that health insurance companies prevent our cover people with pre existing conditions. And you said that that had never been done before. But that's that's not the case, because that is the law under the Affordable Care Act. So my question is why you need to issue exactly over a lot that is already office. I didn't say I said, as an executive order, as you said said, as an executive order, it hasn't been done before. We want to. We want to be able to assure people that pre existing condition is always taken care of, As you know, we've done tremendous things having to do with the individual mandate. We got rid of the individual mandate from Obamacare, which really ended obamacare, as it would be officially known, because the individual mandate was the biggest part. It was also the most unpopular part where you pay for a terror terrible privilege of over paying for insurance. You pay not to have to pay for your healthcare. And that was a disaster for people and a very unpopular that was called the individual mandate. And we terminated that and officially terminated that. And that was something that we have been given thanks for by many, many people. But the individual mandate will always be with us. The individual mandate termination will always be. They can't start it up. In fact, I don't even believe you'll have to tell me. I don't believe it's been challenged when we ended it and pre existing conditions. The Republicans are 100% there, and I'll be issuing at some point in the not too distant future Avery Strong statement on that, probably in the form of an executive order. Thank you water. If it's already a part of it just a double safety net. And just to let people know that the Republicans air totally strongly in favor of pre existing condition, taking care of people with pre existing conditions. It's a It's a signal to people. It's a second, uh, it's a second platform we have free. Existing conditions will be taken care of 100% by Republicans and the Republican Party. I think I actually think it's a very important statement. Yes, please still intend to try to hold on in person G seven meeting in the United States at some point in August in September, and you already sent out invitations to do so. We haven't sent out invitations were talking to them, as you know, is on the phone with many of them yesterday with respect to Lebanon, which is truly one of the saddest, most catastrophic things I've ever seen. And they have no idea how many people have died having revolution right now in that country. It's just a terrible thing. And but I was yesterday eight o'clock in the morning, way had our time. We had a a big teleconference call. Some of those people were there. I'm much more inclined to do it sometime after the election. We were going to do it in September. They'd like to do it. We could do it through teleconference so we could do it through a meeting. But I sort of am now suggesting I told my people yesterday, Actually, what do we do it sometime after the election, when things are a little bit, uh, you have a little more time to think about it because it's very important. The G seven is very important to that meeting. I don't know, but we have invited a number of people to the meeting. I certainly would invite him to the meeting. I think he's an important factor, but we will invite that certain people that aren't in the G seven. Some people have already accepted, but we're gonna be doing it after the election. I think it's a better atmosphere to have a G seven. I think it's a lot. No, I think it's just a better, calmer atmosphere to have a G seven yet. Please, I want you actually have you spoken to any Democrat since Friday. They reach out to it all about restarting. Would you reach out to them? one of eight there want to negotiate, have a new proposal. We're more than happy. They're hurting people very badly. This would have been so easy for them to do. And I saw that Senator Schumer said today on a show, you know, what show? But he said today on the show that we should be we should do something. But, you know, where has he been for how many weeks weeks have you been negotiated, like four, And, uh, they should do something would have been so much easier than doing it the way we did it. But we did something that's, Ah, very important. And frankly, it's been well received very well received earlier today. Considering Gettysburg as a venue for your speech for the artsy what you're thinking behind that is a possible location. Well, I think it's been to get his numerous times the national park. It's a national historic site. It's incredible, you know, it's the history. It's incredible, actually, to me, Um, it was very important place and is a very important place in our country. So we're looking at that and we're looking at the White House. The White House would be very much easier for Secret service. You see what just went on here? They're all here. Just like you have your seats. They have their seats at the White House, so there wouldn't be any expense or any extraordinary expense. Uh, and the White House would be a lovely place to do it. Also least expensive place that you could do. It would be at the White House that this is a government, a government expense. And, you know, look, I I watch also with governments. I watched to make sure that we do what's right. But we're looking at Gettysburg. Oh, we're looking at the White House, and we have other sites to, but I think these would treat to really beautiful sex. Jennifer, you envision having an audience for that speech? You could You have plenty of room at both locations. I see. John Roberts. John, Uh, you're outside. You said you heard shots fired before. Two shots in rapid succession just after. And they were shots Pretty much. You definitely know the difference. You know the difference. You thought they were shots. John definitely sounds like your report inside when I went inside, uh, it's a good report. to thank you very much. Appreciate it. Uh, Jennifer, please update on China. Do you think your administration will respond to the sanctions that China announced this morning on American officials? Well, we've already responded in many different ways. Where we're talking a lot about China. We shouldn't have been talking about China. We did a phase one deal, and it was a wonderful deal. And all of a sudden it means very little in the overall import of things. They should have never allowed what happened to the world, including us. But this was released into Europe, and it was released into the U. S. And it was released all throughout the world. But it wasn't released into China and we were doing numbers that will, you know, just were incredible. And we hope to be able to do them, perhaps even next year. We're gonna have an incredible year next year. But that will never pay for the loss of life in our country and all over the world. So we are review China differently than we did eight months ago. Very much different. Yes, please. Still any consideration of delisting Chinese companies is that on? Do you listing Delisting Way. Never comment on specific people. No, nothing's delisting extreme. Oh, I'm sorry. Yes, so just to be clear way did make the recommendation, and the SEC will be putting out yes, as as of the end of next year if they do not fully comply. And that's Chinese companies, any other countries, they all have to comply with the same exact accounting where they will be delisted on. Also, and Jennifer were also talking on the W T. O. The World Trade Organization. China's treated much differently than we are. They should have been handled many years ago when it first happened. But they're treated as a as a nation that's developing that treated as what they call a developing nation, which gives them tremendous incentives and advantages over and above what the United States gets and over above what other countries get. Also, this is a developing nation. I don't think so. I don't think for purposes of what we're talking about, it should be, and we are putting in, and we've already put in a request that China should no longer be declared a developing nation and have advantages over the U. S. And I told them that a year ago and I told them that two years ago and we put it in very powerfully that they should not have advantages over other countries. Frankly and sure they're not gonna have any more advantages over this should have been done by numerous presidents a long time ago because it gives them a tremendous, a tremendous boost over everybody else. And it's a very unfair situation. No, we are upset with China because of what they did. China was not good and China will be. If you look at what's going to happen, whether it's Iran, Iran will make a deal with us in a month after the elections over if we win the election. But the greatest dream in the world is that Joe Biden wins because they will own this country. China will own this country. North Korea will own this country, they will own our country and they're all waiting to see the election and if we make a we have a win in on November 3rd, we will have a deal with, in my opinion, Iran within one month and I don't know that we wanna have a deal with China to be honest with you. So I'm saying to myself, G But China wants us to lose very badly. And you know who else is not happy with us winning Russia, The phony people that tell the story of the fake news stories about Russia? It was just reported the numbers. I raised $400 billion extra in NATO. You know that we went from 132 $400 billion that's a year in order to strengthen up NATO. Nobody says that we became the biggest energy exporter we are now. If you look at what we have, we're energy independent, so many different things. Our military is stronger than it ever was. We spent $2.5 trillion on our military. I exposed the terrible deal between Germany and Russia on the pipeline. Nobody even knew about the pipeline. Nord Stream, Nord Stream two. Nobody knew about it. Nobody talked about it. I said, What's this all about? So we protect Germany from Russia and Germany pays Russia billions of dollars a year for energy, and it's a big portion of Germany's energy. If I was a person that was a German citizen. I would not be happy with that deal because there is a very big disadvantage. So, uh, no, Russia would not be happy. And I can tell you that China would not be happy at all That we've taken in tens of billions of dollars is your head of the treasury, Steve, We've taken in tens of billions of dollars from China. We never took 10 cents from China and never not even 10 cents and $28 billion we gave to our farmers because they were targeted by China, They were actually targeted, and we gave $28 billion. Compliments of China toe are great farmers and ranchers because they were unfairly targeted by China in order to make a better deal with us. I said, we're not going to do that. We're gonna Instead of making a better deal, we're gonna tear if you at very high numbers 25% 10% and actually numbers that could go up a lot. And, uh, we had a lot of money left over after giving the 28 billion to to the farmers and ranchers and some others frankly, way had many, many billions of dollars left over and we're still receiving that money, even though we made the deal, was still receiving that money. So if if we win, the election will have deals with a lot of countries very fast. They're just waiting to see who wins, because they are hoping they are hoping that Joe Biden wins Sleepy Joe. And if he wins, you know what's gonna happen. China will own us are markets will crash. The 401 case will go down to practically nothing. Stocks will go down to practically nothing. Remember stocks, the's big companies. They're owned by millions of people that are carpenters and policemen and farmers and lots of other people. And, uh, they are the ones that benefit by having a good stock market, probably more than anybody else. But the 401 case, the stocks. The economy will be in a shambles. They want to raise taxes. They want a triple taxes. They want to raise the corporate tax, but they want to raise all tax is ultimately, they can't pay for what they want to do anyway, and what they're going to do is destroy your healthcare and destroy so many other things we're gonna have 180 million people that air so happy with their private health care. They're gonna lose it under this crazy plan that these people are proposing. So you will have a crash like you've never seen before. And I've been very I've been very good at predicting these things yet. Please, you just mentioned President Putin on possibilities inviting your own darts. In essence, Evans has said that Russia is currently planning will, actually meddling in the election. Have you raised that directly? They said China, Russia, Iran and probably others. But because of the fake news, they seem to think Russia plays the best. So what? They dio too, right? Well, I'm just saying the way the politicians look. The other day they said the three countries they said China and Russia and Iran, and some reporter got up and said, Russia is meddling. I said, Well, didn't mention China and Iran. Why didn't you mention them to? So so I don't know. You know what I'm telling you? I'll tell you who's meddling in our elections, the democrats of meddling by wanting and insisting on sending mail in ballots with his corruption, all over the place. If you check what happened in New York. A small, relatively small race with Carolyn Maloney, and they called her the winner of the other day because I was mentioning it at conferences and getting a lot of action on that statement. So they called her. They declared her the winner, and they have no idea who won. And the person her opponent is very angry. But they had mail in voting and they had hundreds. And I think even thousands of ballots that are missing that were fraudulent. Take a look at the Carolyn Maloney race. Take a look at Paterson, New Jersey. Take a look now at this one in Virginia, where they mailed out 500,000 applications and they go into people that aren't supposed to be getting an application. Yeah. Please, God. Thank you, Secretary. Europe again, right? Sweet. Do you have any updates on when the travel restrictions with you're gonna be listed? Seems strange. Were offering exemptions for professional athletes, but not pay one visa holders. So call. We try and do the best we can. You have big sporting events, and that's good for our economy. That's good for us and they do talk about certain exemptions and then make sure everyone's perfectly tested and everyone comes in 100%. But, you know, we do make certain accommodations because you do have star athletes and that means a good thing for the country. That's economic development, etcetera. But we are working very closely with Europe and with other countries to see what's the best time. You don't forget I was the one that turned Europe off because they really they lead the way they let it, much more so than we did. We were months following them, and, uh, in terms of they got hit earlier than we did quite a bit earlier than we did. So I put the restrictions on Europe. I put the restrictions on China, which was a great thing to do in retrospect were getting, I mean, that's that was a very important day, Dr Fauci said. That was one of the most important days and a lot of people didn't want me to do it. But we first put ban a ban on anybody from China coming in and then we put a ban on Europe coming in, but we're working very closely with Europe to see when that will all come off. Please. If 160,000 people have died on President Obama's watch, do you think you would have called for his resignation? No, I wouldn't have done that. I think it's, uh I think it's been amazing what we've been able to do. If we didn't close up our country, we would have had 1.5 or two million people already dead. We've called it right now. We don't have to close that. We understand the disease. Nobody understood it because nobody's ever seen anything like this. The closest thing is, uh, in 1917. They say, right, the great the Great Pandemic and certainly was a terrible thing where they lost anywhere from 50 to 100 million people probably ended the Second World War. All the soldiers were sick. It was It was a terrible situation, and this is highly contagious. This one is highly highly contagious. No, if I would have listened to a lot of people, we would have kept it open. And by the way, we keep it open now all the way to keep it open. But we would have kept it open and you could be up to a 1,000,000 half of two million people right now, 1.5 to 2 million people. Our people have done a fantastic jobs, are consultants and our doctors, you know, with disagreements and with a lot of things happening. What we've done with ventilators has been amazing. What we've done with medical equipment has been incredible. We've supplied the governor's nobody. Not one person in this country that needed a ventilator didn't get it. And, you know, at the beginning there was a big shortage of ventilators. Nobody had stockpiles or anything comparable to what you had have. So, uh, we would have lost if you think about it. You had mentioned 100 and 60,000 people multiply that times stand right now. I think it would have been unsustainable and unacceptable, but that's what would have happened had we kept it open. So, no, I think we're a very large country. We are one person, I said all the time. A lot of people like to leave that at one person is too many. It should have never happened, but they've done it really an extraordinary job. They'll never be given the credit. And I'm not talking about May. The people that have worked on this so hard will never be given the credit. But they've done an extraordinary job with a very large, diverse country, really an extraordinary job and a lot of the governors who, as you know, they sort of do the micro in their states. And they go up. And I think I can tell you that a lot of the governors have done an extraordinary jump to Yeah, please. Did you have the U. S. Ambassador Rizzio to focus peace efforts eliminating ethical terrorists? Brazil. You have to eat. You can ambassador in Brazil to focus his efforts to lower to eliminate at a no tear in Brazil. We haven't really discussed that too much, but at some point we probably will be. And we don't want people tariff ing us. And if they terrify us, although I must tell you have a very good relationship with President Paulson Aro, he's great and I hear he's doing well. He's recovered from having cove it having Cove in 19 as they say, and that's great and sending my regards. I think that as far as Brazil's concerned. If they do tariffs, we have to have an equalization of tariffs, and we we are going to be presenting something having to do with tariffs and fairness and fit terrors because we have many countries for many years that have been charging US tariffs to do business and we don't charge them and it's called reciprocity. It's called reciprocal tariffs, and you may be seeing something on that very soon. Did you have one oil? Thank you stuff. So I have an opinion question for you. Joe Biden is set to announce his running mate any time now. We expect many of your supporters feel that the reason that Obama's former s a Susan Rice on top of by his list that she confessed cover up a lot of the Obama gates of crimes that have taken place during your What are your thoughts? What is your opinion? You? Do you subscribe to that line of thought? How do you feel about it? Well, look, the Obama campaign spied on our campaign and they've been caught all right. Now let's see what happens to them. But they have been caught. They've been caught red handed. It's probably treason. It's a horrible thing. They did. It probably never happened before. At least nobody got caught doing it. But they used the intelligence agencies of our country to spy on my campaign, and they have been caught. And, uh, there are a lot of people involved. I don't want to say how much she's involved. Frankly, if he chooses here, that's fine. But that's a potential liability. We'll see. But, uh, President Obama knew about it. Joe Biden knew about it. Call me. Do about it. Brennan, Clapper, the whole group. They all knew about it. Lisa Page, her lover struck. They all knew about it, and we have it documented. We haven't in Tex. We have it in all sorts of forms. They knew about it. It was a terrible thing. Should have never happened and should never be allowed to happen again. To a president, that should never happen again. This was a set up like we've never seen. I think it's a political crime of the century, and they've been caught. So let's see what happens to them all. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you.
