Thank you very much. Please come on up with Larry. Robert Steve coming up Good afternoon. We've had a tremendous today's year will be heading back right after this conference and just concluded some additional meetings. We had a lot of them and a bus has treated us really beautifully. It's been in tremendous success everyone stuck in about an America's unprecedented economic success. It's really The Talk of the Town. So to speak since my election Americans gained over

7 million new jobs. The unemployment rate is now the lowest in over half a century. The average unemployment rate for my Administration is the lowest president in recorded history, which is very nice with some good ones. We have some bad ones too, by the way. Unemployment rates among African-American Hispanic American asian-americans has reached a record low in the history of our country the lowest African-American youth unemployment has reached the lowest in the history of our country. So proud of that African American poverty numbers have plummeted to the

lowest rate ever recorded. Doing really well unemployment rate for women has reached the lowest level in almost 70 years. And the veterans unemployment rate dropped to a record low. Unemployment rate for disabled Americans has reached its all-time record low also deserve. Workers without a high-school diploma have received the and achieved the lowest unemployment rate ever in recorded history. And it's so important without a high-school diploma. A lot

of great people that don't have a high school diploma. So we have record low unemployment a record number of Young Americans Janelle employed. We have the highest number of people working in our country that we've ever had before. We've never had anything even close. We're almost up to 160 million and we've lifted 10 million people off of welfare and You know all about food stamps. We talk about it all the time, but millions and millions of people don't need food stamps anymore said that we flipped them off which we have but they don't need them anymore. They have jobs here. They're

doing really well do u.s. Stock markets have soared and they reach the highest point that they've ever ever had. We made at least 19 trillion dollars in terms of wealth in terms of wealth creation for a country beyond the stock markets. And there we are now by far the biggest economy in the world that China would have caught us. They were getting very close. It was anticipated that in 2019 is for many years. I'm not telling any secrets by 2019 China would become the largest economy in the world and right now with much larger,

but we have a great new deal with China great deal. We have I would say our best relationship that we've ever had with John on top of everything else and we're starting phase to phase one turned out to be much bigger than we anticipated because we have intellectual property protections. We have many of the financial deals and aspects of the financial details that we wanted. We got done and other things in addition to the farmer's we've got the total complete package for the farmers. And we think that'll that we we estimate that'll be anywhere between 40 and 50 billion

dollars the number. I think it's going to be closer to 50 been in the most I've ever done is 16. So we go from 16 to anywhere from 40 to 50 billion that they'll be purchasing where an economic Powerhouse like Actually, we've never been jobs factories companies are pouring back into the United States. That's one of the reasons I've been in Davos is we have had conversations with other leaders of other countries where we've traditionally had tremendous deficits. I say you have to move factories and plants back here. They took a lot of them. They actually took a lot of

them and are they going to move them back? And then I got to move them back to companies are coming back cuz everybody wants to be here, but the country's also understand that we have to balance out our trade and we're doing incredibly well in that way and one of the people that was very important for me to meet from the World Trade Organization is Roberto Azevedo and he is a highly respected man. He happens to be this gentleman right here. I thought I'd have to say a few words, but the World Trade Organization is you know, I've had a dispute running with them for quite a

while because our country has it been treated fairly John is viewed as they develop. Nation India's Beauty as a developing Nation will not be as a developing Nation as far as I'm concerned. We're developing Nation to but they got tremendous advantages by the fact that they were considered developing and we weren't and they shouldn't be but if they are we are and we're talking about a whole new structure for the deal or we'll have to do something but the World Trade Organization has been very unfair to the United States for many many years.

And without agina wouldn't be trying to channel wouldn't be where they are right now. I'm in China that was the vehicle that they used and I give them great credit and I also don't give the people that were in my position Greg Reddick is frankly they let that all happen. But the vehicle was the World Trade Organization and Roberto and I have a tremendous relationship and we're going to do something that I think will be very dramatic know he'll be coming with a lot of his representatives to Washington sometime maybe next week or the week after and we'll start working on it. So I'd like to

introduce just for briefly Roberto and say a few words of behalf of the WTO. And then I'm going to introduce Larry Kudlow to say exactly where we are in terms of our economy some of you know, but we've had some tremendous numbers just over the very recent past. So please Roberto Well, thank you. Mr. President and I think it's fair to say that we have been saying for quite some time that if the most electoral system if the WTO is to deliver its in performance role in today's global economy. It has to be updated. It has to be changed. It has to be

reformed. This is an agenda that is squarely before members. I don't think anybody in Geneva misses the point. I think they understand that the decision has not been functioning properly in many areas. That's something that we're trying to address. I'm very happy that the in the conversation today with President Trump. He agreed that this is something that needs to happen to them at your house or change. We are committed to affect those changes and this is something that we're serious about then I am going to be together with President Trump as soon as possible discussing what needs

to change what needs to be Affected in the WHL and we're committed to doing that and of course, I will be talking to all the other WTO members making sure that they all understand that this is serious. This is a path that we all have to be on together. If we want to make the double chill relevant and Performing to today's requirements frankly. So thank you very much. Mr. President. It's an honor to be with you and with everybody else. Thank you. Larry Flynt's lawyer, Thank you, sir. So I think we're coming into the new year was a lot of

positive momentum in the economy. And again, I want to repeat what president speech yesterday. He's a transformational free enterprise policies lower tax rates across the board deregulation energy Independence and breaking down trade barriers for better deals for exporting just recently we've seen all the confidence surveys are strong consumer confidence business confidence small business confidence the huge stock market rally which continues is I believe a sign of business and consumer confidence and predicting an even stronger economy in

2020. Also lately housing markets are very strongly seen some huge numbers in new housing starts and existing and new home sales. That's a great Omen. So leading indicator and even with softness and Manufacturing last year. We're seeing Audi i8 Yes Market surveys for PMI manufacturing up for straight months for the US and then I think that's a terrific sign of a comeback. I think the president's trade deals have inspired a lot of confidence among large and small businesses. And I think it's going to add at least a half a

point to GDP this year. I think we're going to be moving into the 3% So we still have to cope with this slow down and bowing. We'll see how that plays out. But I think usmca and the China deals are going to add a lot of growth this year and the years ahead and the great part about this to me. I've been around for a while is when you look inside look under the hood in this growth spurt with three and a half percent unemployment and virtually no inflation, which itself is a remarkable development. It is the American middle class. It is the

American blue-collar middle-class. They have the fastest wage growth. Thank you very much. Please come on up for bird on Larry. Robert Steve coming up Thank you very much. Please come on up, Roberto and Larry. Robert Steve coming up Good afternoon. We've had a tremendous. Thank you very much. Please come on up, Roberto and Larry. Robert Steve coming up Good afternoon.

understand that this is serious. This is a path that we all have to be on together. If we want to make the double chill relevant and Performing to today's requirements frankly. So thank you very much. Mr. President. It's an honor to be with you and with everybody else. Thank you. Larry face Larry, Thank you, sir. So I think we're coming into the new year with a lot of positive momentum in the economy. And again, I want to repeat what president speech yesterday. He's a transformational free enterprise policies lower tax rates across the board deregulation energy

Independence and breaking down trade barriers for better deals for exporting just recently we've seen all the confidence surveys are strong consumer confidence business confidence small business confidence that huge stock market rally which continues is I believe a sign of business and consumer confidence and predicting an even stronger economy in 2020. Also lately housing markets are very strongly seen some huge numbers in new housing starts and existing and new home sales. That's a great Omen. So leading indicator and even

with softness in manufacturing last year. We're seeing Audi i8 Yes Market surveys for PMI manufacturing up for straight months for the US and I think that's a terrific sign of a comeback. I think the president's trade deals have inspired a lot of confidence among large and small businesses. And I think it's going to add at least a half a point to GDP this year. I think we're going to be moving into the 3% So we still have to cope with the Slowdown and Boeing. We'll see how that plays out. But I think usmca and the China deals are going to add a lot

of growth this year and the years ahead and the great part about this to me. I've been around for a while is when you look inside look under the hood in this growth spurt with three and a half percent unemployment and virtually no inflation, which itself is a remarkable development. It is the American middle class. It is the American blue-collar middle-class. They have the fastest wage growth. And in fact, the lower-wage folks are getting the fastest wage increases exceeding a significantly, but from what their managers are making and I would add also as a

present is indicated in this stock market rally. I know it's commonplace to say it only helps if you're rich people that is just not true over half the households in this country on shares to 401k and Ira and brokerage accounts and so forth you look at the numbers and the ca just published a great slide book on this the bottom 50% has had a 47% increase in their net wealth consumer net wealth between home prices and share prices. And that is a booster rocket to this economy is not only gives them confidence. He gives them some

serious spending power and the consumer spending numbers veritas. So ours is an optimistic message, and I think the president really carried the day in his speech yesterday. Thank you, sir. Thank you very much. Larry. Even when you think that soon it'll start pretty soon. It's already started to a certain extent. I asked them to do it. John is going to be purchasing more than 250 billion dollars worth of goods from our current units Madison. Those are numbers and nobody's ever heard of before and that number can grow. I can grow with time. It's going to grow substantially I

predict and then you have the usmca Mexico Canada and that's a massive numbers were talking about there and we made a deal with Japan 40 billion dollars and we made a deal with South Korea. That's a tremendous deal. Also. There was a horrible deal. We turned it into her a really good deal. So it was really something while we were in Davos most of you know, this we met with the world leaders of various world leaders and putting the president of the European commission who were going to start negotiating a trade deal with

because the European commission was frankly as many ways tougher than China. I say that respectfully but that's the way it is taken advantage for a long time. And so we're going to have a deal I suspect we're going to be able to make a deal otherwise rough to do something else and then they'll are they going to make a deal. They haven't wanted to negotiate with past presidents, but they going to negotiate with me the president of the Swiss Confederation who's been very nice and terrific the president of Kurdistan. We had a tremendous meeting along with president

sahle of Iraq prime minister of Pakistan and president ghani of Afghanistan. In addition. We met with many of the Business Leaders of both that breakfast today and lunch yesterday and dinner yesterday many of you were at those meetings at least for a little while and tremendous numbers of jobs will be coming into the United States a lot of these leaders. He said that the biggest Business Leaders in the world And this morning was very inspirational lemon and these companies are really going to expand and it was a request of

mine. But we did we've been very good to them. They're all doing very well and we have companies from Europe companies from Asia now coming to the United States. That's where the action is. As one of them said that's where the action is. So it's really been it's really been great. And now we'll be going we'll be leaving and going back to Washington. Okay? Yes. Jamaica well, I change the way I look at it. It's a disgrace and they talked about their tremendous case and it's all done their tremendous

case. They had no case. It's all a hoax the con job like shift. He's a corrupt politician now, I'll leave that to the Senate sends going to have to answer that. I have great respect for the Senate as a body and many of the individuals a great respect. So I'll leave that to the Senate but this is the greatest Witch Hunt this started from the day. I came down with the future first lady and the day we came down the escalator this started and I watch the they've been driven crazy. You know, what's driving him crazy all of these record numbers on unemployment African-American Asian-American

you take a look at static American is numbers that nobody's even believing they look it at all of this that look at it this tremendous success the likes of which they've never seen before in this country. And it's driven the Democrats crazy as Congressman green said Al Green, he's a beauty as Congressman green said we got to beat him by impeachment this we can't beat him in the election. And I hope that's true because honestly, they can't beat me in the election. I don't think they can I know what they are. I know what I'll be running against one way or the other. It's one of

them and I think we're going to do very well. But I think we're going to do well because nobody's done in the first three years less than three years because a lot of these numbers were taken from two months ago. They ended two months ago and less than three years. Nobody's done that kind of numbers we've done so I'm going to head back and I'll be watching it but it's really going to be up to the Senate we're going to have them make that determination. Please president job. You were the keynote speaker here, but you scared some of the spotlight with a Scandinavian

reddish coomber anger. She has some very harsh words. She had some very strong words here. That's the United States and other industrialized countries need to do more. You still feel that you're doing enough about. How old how old is she? Repeat me out on Time Magazine. I think that she has a message but I would have loved to have seen her. I did not. No, not at all. I think what is I think aspects of Adar? I think that some people are they put it at a level that is unrealistic to a point. You can't live your lives. We

want to have the cleanest water on Earth. We want to have the cleanest air on Earth are numbers is used to love we had record numbers come out very recently. Our numbers are very very good are environmental numbers are water numbers are our numbers on are our tremendous we have to do something about other continents we have to do something about other countries when we are clean and beautiful and everything is good. But you have another continent where the fumes are rising at levels that you can't believe. I mean, I think Greta autofocus are those places, but we are

doing better right now than we've ever done in terms of cleanliness in terms of numbers. We have a beautiful ocean call the Pacific Ocean with thousands and thousands of tons of garbage flows toward us and that's what are by other countries so I think Greta has to start working on those other countries, by the way, congratulations on your show and then a very wise decision if I do for an interview whenever open well even talk to the lawyers about it, but I will tell you this nothing here. I had a very innocent conversation with a very fine gentleman from the

Ukraine and it was based on that people don't even want to talk about the conversation. I got to watch glimpses in between all of these meetings and I just told you about I got to watch glimpses of what is taking place wasting time and Washington and I watched you don't talk about my conversation. They don't talk about my transcripts. Remember this when shift made up the phony story and it repeated it to Congress and the world and it was a totally funny story that I released the transcript there was supposed to be a second whistleblower what happened to him. There was way otherwise I

want to your show weight. It was supposed to be an Informer what happened to the Informer all of these people disappeared and when they saw this transcript, they said we got problems, but they want ahead because they were already there because they they had a phony, Kentucky. Did Story made up? So here's a story did nothing wrong. It was a perfect conversation. It was totally appropriate the best lawyers in the world of looked at it. The Department of Justice has looked at it given it a sign off. It was nothing wrong. They never thought I was going to release the

conversation. They probably didn't think we had transcribers are we had to transfer transcribe your tapes, but they never thought we're going to release it when we released that conversation all hell broke out with the Democrats because they say wait a minute. This is much different then Shifty shift told us so we doing very well. I got to watch enough. I thought our team did a very good job, but honestly, we have all the material they don't have the material. Power or

obstructions. They objected open-ended a criteria of power is what was the pens but if you take a look at this and from what everybody tells me all I do is a modest I make great deals. I've made great deals for our country. Now we're working with the WTO. You're probably surprised by that but there's been a long-term abusive situation to the US I make great deals for a country and their honest deals and when you read that transcription and by the way can wasn't one call. It was two calls. Nobody likes to talk about that. There was one call which was perfect. And then

there was a second call I guess a couple of months later, which was perfect. The president of Ukraine and said it was perfect the foreign minister of Ukraine said it was perfect. So if we have a transcription we have to call and we have the person on the other side of the call saying he was going to his the other thing they got their money long before schedule. They got all their money what nobody says is very important to me. Why isn't Germany paying why isn't UK paying? Why isn't France Bank? Why are the European nations Bank? Why is it always the

sucker United States? That's one and the other thing I wanted to check very carefully and is very important is corruption. And we do that to this was a perfect call and I think we're doing very well. What to say to China trade deal we expect the human rights in Hong Kong we are we can do something. But again, we're doing a trade deal and it's very big deal phase one is done phase two is there being discussed we are discussing aspects of your question is did the principal at

one point you demanded a witness, by the way, when we have the head of the World Trade Organization here and he has to listen to this nonsense about a call. That was perfect and nobody talks about I never see them talking about the transcription. I never see them talkin about the call because there's nothing to say you read it. Somebody should just sit there and read it and everybody's going to say you mean that's an impeachable event if that were impeachable Lyndon Johnson would have had to leave office in his first day.

Kennedy would have had to leave offices first day. It's a hoax and you understand. It's a hoax better than anybody at the house and that's the way it is. You're going to play you said repeatedly to American then after a Ron retaliated for the soleimani strike. No Americans were injured. We now know at least 11 u.s. Service men were airlifted from a can you explain the discrepancy know I heard that they had headaches and a couple of other things but I would say yeah and I can report it is not very serious. Very serious

brain injury. They told me about it numerous days lady that has after s Department of Defense know I don't consider them very serious injuries relative to other injuries that I've seen I've seen what a run is done with their roadside bombs to our trips. I've seen people with no legs and with no arms. I've seen people that were horribly horribly injured in That area that wore in fact medications put those bombs put there by solemn and he is no longer with us. I consider them to be really bad injuries. No, I do not consider that to be that injuries now.

Timeline for that and if you don't get that time yet, there is one. Are you automatically going to go to Paris or is there another is there another Avenue other than I don't have a timeline, but maybe I do in my own mind and they have to move relatively quickly but they have to treat us fairly. The European Union was formed pretty much for this reason. I suspect you know, if you really think about it. Why was it formed a form their Aeroplane company, which does very nicely and now it's doing better than ever because Boeing has not had a good time of it. They have

they have they better start recovering fast. I hope they do they have some good people in there. Now. They have great people in the company, but they have some good people eating it now, so hopefully that'll be taken care of a but I know I have a a date in my mind. And it's a fairly quick date and if we're unable to make a deal then we'll do even better will do even better in 50 billion and more for many years hundred fifty billion more. I mean really more than that with the European Union. They have trade barriers where you can trade they have tariffs all over the place. They

make it impossible. They are frankly more difficult to do business with vingina. We have a great relationship with China. Now, we had some testing moments Jessie be on to test a worse than a lot of people would understand but we got it done and I think phase two will go nicely also, but with the European Union and frankly, I'll be honest. I wanted to wait till I finish China before I went to work on. respectfully Europe But you're up here. So beautiful. I guess a lot of us come in directly from Europe is not nice, but they are actually more difficult to do business with in China.

All you have to do is ask Boris, but I think Boris is going to be okay, too. I think he's going to come after 8. I think he has had a lot of guts. He's done a terrific job. I think he's in a good position which they would have never been able to do before Boris. I have a date. I have a very specific date in my mind. before I do they wanted to make a deal. This is our nation or country. Wanted to make a deal under President Obama. The EU refused to talk to him. And then they

said no no. No, we like it the way it is. Of course, they like it the way it is that making 150 billion, + right? And as you know President Bush was desperate to make it the other wouldn't even talk to me to talk into It will have a deal if we don't have a deal will do even better. Yes or no. Which country? So we have a travel ban. It's a very powerful man and a lot of heard a reporter recently. Say he lost the band in Fort they didn't say that we wanted in the Supreme Court I'd say that's a little deceptive John when you he said he lost the

travel ban. I didn't lose the travel ban. The travel ban was lost in the lower courts and one in the Supreme Court 2 years ago. Now we are we're adding a couple of countries to it. We have to be safe. Our country has to be safe. You see what's going on in the world. Our country has to be safe. So we have a very strong travel ban, and we'll be adding a few countries dealer. Games about the region or are you going to pick to be an aspiration? Regards to the proceedings going on in the Senate. Would you like to see this over quickly? Would you like to see a thorough examination the fact what

did you make of the distance between White House counsel that cipolloni and jerrold Nadler last night and are you absolutely against John Bolton? What you're asking a lot of questions, first of all jerrold Nadler. I've known him a long time. He's just lays bag. Everybody knows that Pat cipolloni is a high-quality human being I was very impressed with Fathead great emotion yesterday. That's a brilliant guy, but I've never seen that emotion and that's real emotion. That's because he knows this is a hoax And that I was very proud of the job. We did I've known I've known

Jerry Nadler for a long time. Suppose many of my jobs. I got them all built very successfully built the New York and but so we have yet another fight, isn't it? Isn't it? Amazing? Isn't it? Surprising isn't it amazing? But if you look at it, you know other aspects of other parts of your your question, I think that the I would rather go the long way. I would rather interview Bolton. I would rather interview a lot of people the problem with John is that it's a national security problem. You know, you can't

have somebody who's at National Security and if you think about it John he knows some of my thoughts he knows what I think about leaders and what happens if he reveals what I think about a certain leader and it's not very positive and that I have to deal on behalf of the country's going to be very hard. It's going to make the job very hard. He knows other things and I don't know if we left on the best of terms. I would say probably not, you know, I don't like people testifying when they didn't leave on good terms and that was due to me not do to him. And so we'll see

what happens. But when you have a national security what you could call it presidential prerogative, you could just call it the way I look at it. I go at National Security for national security reasons executive privilege, they say so that would John would certainly fit in. When you're a national security advisor like this gentleman is doing a fantastic job Robert. I just think it's very hard and I've always gotten along. I've actually gotten along with you and I didn't get along with other people a lot of other people but when he knows my thoughts on certain people and other

governments and we're talking about massive trade deals and Warren peace and all these different things that we talked about. That's really a very important national security problem. I think having somebody other people and Mick Mulvaney is probably around here someplace. I'd love to have make though, but I think that he's really expressed himself very well. When he did a Chris Wallace interview. That was a very very powerful interview. That was a long tough. Chris has a tough interview or very talented guy and you know, I think it's not much he can add he's been he's been great. I would

like to have I'll tell you what I don't like that. I'd love that Mike Pompeo testify. But again, that's a national security from but I'd love that Mike Pompeo, but it's a national security problem. I'd love to have Rick Perry Rick Perry has asked me I'd love to testify please. Let me testify because he knows this is all I see understand it better than most and Rick Perry would love to testify but we dealing with National Security. We're dealing with one other thing. Our country has been tied up with this hooks from the day. I came down the escalator. We've been

fighting it. I've been fighting it from the day. I've been elected I would say probably long before it could be long before I came down the escalator. That's some people upset that which is hard to believe. It's hard to believe. We've been fighting this I would rather have personally, I'd rather go the long route. It's horrible for our country. Our country has to get back to business. We have people that are corrupt like Adam Schiff who Miss go to other men Miss quotes makes up a safe and he had no idea that I was going to release the transcript. You never thought I do that and for

that I thank the president of Ukraine cuz we got their approval. He had no idea I was going to do that but piece of corrupt people some of them and some of them are just playing the political game. But if you look at the poll numbers, my phone numbers are the highest I've ever been if you look at the funding numbers, if you look at what the money raised by the Republican party is just set a record nobody's ever done this before. It's because of the impeachment hoax. How many chicks?

What happened? Way about him now and 3 love harness and come forward and said that you knew everything that he was doing in your soul like a groupie. He shows up at fundraisers. Okay, so I don't know anything about him. I watch Beauty really is a terrific person. Great crime fighter the best Marin the history of New York City by far solve the crime problem in New York, and I think it's very unfair the way the media is treated Rudy Giuliani. I will say this parnis. I don't know other than he probably

contribute to the campaign along with tens of thousands of other people and I take I mean, I was this weekend I was taking pictures with hundreds of people there that contribute to the Republican party and I stand there and I take pictures and every once in a while. I look at somebody I say gee I wonder when that picture is going to be in the New York Times or the Washington Post or on Fox. Do you know what's up which one of those things? I think Rudy is a high-quality person. Cuz I don't want I don't want there to be a conflict. I'd love to have it in my dream. But you know, he could be

a witness at some point if this whole sham continues, I would love to everybody on the team by team just so you understand, but I'd love to have him up there but it could be that he'd have a conflict. It could be a but Rudy Giuliani is somebody that I think the Press has been very unfair to greatest marriage initiative New York think of it. And what are the greatest crime-fighters of the last hundred years and he hates to see what's happening because he knows corruption really better than anybody. Okay, go ahead. So come Stars a terrific man. I did make that

statement because frankly I didn't think that Bill Clinton should have been impeached. And I thought it was terrible. I didn't know kuenster but I didn't think that Bill Clinton should be in page should have been impeached and I was pretty vocal about that. I didn't know Ken but what I did know is he was very smart. It was very tough. He was very talented but in a certain way, I was sticking up for Clinton for Bill Clinton and you know, I still feel that way. I mean what he did was nothing good. It was a lot of lying going on there. A lot of things a lot of bad things that

with me. There's no lying. There's no nothing bad. They don't even have a crime. They said this is the only one that's ever been impeached and he didn't commit a crime. I didn't commit a crime and then you get into high crimes and misdemeanors, but I didn't commit a crime. So now I have great respect for 10, but I didn't think frankly that Bill Clinton should have been impeached. Show up at your trial any day left to go with that big red one that big beautiful. I don't know. I'd sort of Love sit right there and stare their corrupt faces. I'd love to do it. I don't know. Don't you talk

in because I may you may convince me to do it, but I think they might have a problem. I think they might and by the way, I think I think they've they've done a really good job, and I think the other side has so lied. I watch the lies from Adam Schiff. He'll stand to look at a microphone. It'll talk like you so aggrieved. Easter guys decent major sleazebags are very dishonest people very very dishonest people when somebody will make up a statement that I made when you remember the statement 8 * quid pro quo e x think of it. How can

you say a time that would mean I was asking somebody eight different times for the same thing. What kind of a conversation would that be? If you ask once that would be fine. Yes twice, that'll be how can you ask eight times it would if they would say you're a loony toon right? And then he said, I think he finished by saying don't call me. I'll call you that I said that he made that safe and don't call me. I'll call you and he didn't say he made it up now. Ultimately he had to innocence apologize. He can hardly apologize but he had to apologize because fortunately we

had a tape. We had the transcripts. I am so happy that I had the transcripts because it showed he's a liar and he's a fraud and they continue to just go on and on but this has happened to me with the Russian hoax. This is happened to be I call it the Witch Hunt greatest Witch Hunt in American history and the Mueller report which exonerated totally there was no collusion after all that two years. There was no collusion. And then what happened to Jill Stein from the green party gets called a Russian agent by crooked Hillary and

then Tulsi gabbard. I don't know either of them, but I know they're not Russian agents gets called a Russian agent. This is what these people do they do mean And the Press plays in because the Press largely is their partner and you know, one thing if we could straighten out the press in our country, we would we would have a place that would be so incredible depress depress is so dishonest so corrupt. I read it all the time. So I don't my bed sores what I deserve best or sometimes. But when I do something great or good Let It Be written about good same thing with other

people. The corruption and the media as I call it the fake news media is unbelievable. And hopefully everybody is going to sort of learn a lesson people got Pulitzer prizes for their coverage of me and it turned out they would totally wrong other people. Sean Hannity rushbo a lot of great people lot of great writers. They got it, right. They didn't get Pulitzer prizes, but they got it, right the Russian hoax was a terrible thing. The dossier was a phony deal paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC and used in the fisa Court's totally illegally know it's a terrible thing that happened. This

was a takedown attempt. At a sitting president of the United States and we caught them. So, let's see what happens. Delaying the State of the Union at the impeachment trial for Bob Woodward. I guess he's doing another book on Trump at this time. I'll actually give him an interview. Did you enjoy this ride you I said not to join you should know you act like you're winning and you one I'm doing it because it's very important what I'm doing. I consider what I've done here with this whole Witch Hunt from day one with the insurance policy with a horrible statements made between

struck and page in McCabe and Comey who lied to Congress and did so many other bad things. He lied any leaked. When I finish I think that this is going to go down as one of the greatest things I've done for our country. These are bad corrupt people. These are bad people and very bad for our country. Thank you very much everybody. Thank you. Thank you very much.
