Trump holds presser discussing possible executive order for additional stimulus
The united states. Donald, j. Trump. Thank you very much and it's a great honor to have everybody, here and. I know the press. Was not quite expecting, this so i appreciate, your being able to attend we have. A. Terrific. Number of things and some very positive, things to tell you tonight i want to begin by giving an update on the economy. Economic, health is vital to, public health. That's why our, strategy, to kill the china virus, is focused, on protecting, those. At greatest, risk. While allowing, younger and healthy americans. To safely return, to work and, safely, returned, to school, very important. We added, 1.8. Million new jobs in july, exceeding, predictions, for the third month in a row. And adding a total of over, 9.3. Million, jobs since may. And i will say that the job growth that we've seen over the last three months 9.3. Million. Is the single greatest three-month, period of job creation. In american, history, that's big stuff, that's big news and great news. Over the past three months the united, states has surpassed, market, expectations. By a total of 12, million new jobs. Over the last three months the united states, has added. 623. 000. Manufacturing. Jobs remember, you'd need a magic, wand to get manufacturing. Jobs. And we're getting them even in. A pandemic. Which is. Disappearing. It's going to disappear. And, 639. 000. Brand new construction. Jobs. Over half of the new jobs, are full-time, jobs and wages, are up, by 4.8. Which is terrific, unemployment, has fallen. By nearly 30 percent, since april. Think of that 30. Since april hispanic, american, unemployment, has decreased by nearly 32, percent. Jobs held by african, americans, which were hit especially, hard by the shutdowns. Incredibly. Hard. Increased, by nearly 1 million, over the past three months and that's also. A record that's a job record, african-american. 1 million. It's a job record. We must, ensure, that the progress, continues. My administration. Has enacted, over three trillion, in historic. Relief. Since china allowed the virus, to infect the world. So we've contributed. Three trillion.
Dollars. My administration. Continues, to work in good faith. To reach an agreement, with democrats, in congress, that will extend unemployment, benefits, provide protections. Against. Evictions. A terrible, thing happens with evictions. Not fair. It wasn't, their fault, that. We were infected, with this disease, from china. And get relief, to american, families, yet tragically, nancy, pelosi, and chuck schumer continue. To insist, on, radical, left-wing, policies. That have nothing to do with the, china, virus, nothing to do with it at all. So you have a. Virus that comes in. And you have people, in congress, that don't want to help, our people. If democrats. Continue to hold this critical, relief hostage, i will act under my authority, as president, to get. Americans. The relief. They need. And, what we're talking about, is deferring. The payroll, tax. For. A period of months till the end of the year and i can extend it, at a certain period, hopefully, i will be here to. Do the job we're going to do the job we've been doing a job like nobody could. Nobody would actually. And so we're going to have the payroll, tax go. Till the end of the year and it'll be retroactive. To july, 1st. So we're going to go back to july 1st and, it'll go to the end of the year payroll, tax. At the end of the year, it may be extended. We're going to enhance. Unemployment. Benefits, through the end of the year. So, unemployment. Benefits, will be that's a big one. Will be. Brought out to the end of the year. And defer, student loan payments, and forgive, interest, until, further notice. So, students, who are paying student, loans and in many cases, are not even allowed to go back into their colleges. Extend the eviction. Moratorium. We will be extending, that. So people aren't evicted. Not their fault. We had a, lengthy. Discussion. This morning with president macron, of france concerning, numerous subjects, but in particular. The, catastrophic. Event which took place in beirut, lebanon. Horrible, horrible event. At 3 p.m this afternoon, i spoke with president.
Ayon. Of lebanon, to inform, him that three large, aircraft. On the. Are on the way, and they're, fully loaded. Fully loaded. With medical supplies. Food, water, and. Many other things. Lots of emergency. Equipment, also, first responders. Technicians. Doctors. And nurses. Are on their way. This was an event like. The world has not seen, for a long time. Horrible, event. We'll be having. A conference, call on sunday with president, macron. Leaders of lebanon, and leaders, from various, parts of the world everyone, wants to help. We spoke to, a lot of people they all want to help. The united, states, is. With authorities. On. The ground right now in lebanon. To identify, further health and humanitarian. Needs and we will provide further, assistance. In the period to come. We're working very closely, with their government, with their leaders. And on behalf of the united, states, i want to extend. Our condolences. To all of the families. A much larger, number of families than anybody would have thought and than anybody. At first thought. But all of those families, who lost. Loved ones. Relatives. Friends. In this horrible, tragedy, we stand firmly with the people of lebanon, and will continue, to offer our full support. Through this very difficult, time we have not seen anything, like this. In a long time. As you know earlier, this week i met with american, workers, at the tennessee, valley authority. Who have been laid off by the leadership. At the. Tennessee, valley, authority. As you know this, is. A. Form of utility. It's been around for a long time since fdr. And. The head person. Not controlled, by government. But it sort of, semi-public. In a sense. Gets paid the highest. Salary, in the world. Of government. Uh it gets eight million dollars a year that's not a bad amount of money. It's eight million dollars, a year. And. We are. Not. Accepting, that, even though, we're not the ones that appoint him. Or her, but in this case him. We're not accepting, somebody getting paid eight million dollars a year this has been going on for many years. And we will. Do something about that and we're already in negotiations. Right now. Including. Possible, termination. They and hundreds, of their fellow american, tech workers, the workers, at the tva. Were being terminated, from their positions. On top of. All of this and on top of the eight million dollar salary, and a chief of staff who makes much more than a million dollars a year. But on top of all that they were being terminated. From their positions, these incredible, people. In order to train. The lower-cost. Foreign workers, imported to replace, them how's that for a, law. And this was set up originally, to create jobs and economic, development. And now. They're getting fired and they're supposed to train people. For. A much lower who get a much lower, salary. It's crazy. This was a grave, injustice. I fired the chairman of the board in response. On friday i fired the chairman of the board. Along with one other board member. That's, the one thing we have we have the right to fire. Board members. And i made it clear that if they did not swiftly. Reverse, course. I would continue. With these firings. Of the board members. And we just were informed, that. They have agreed to change, course. Totally. And today i'm proud to announce that a major, victory, for the workers, of. Tennessee. And kentucky. And other, areas. That are covered, great states. Great states. That the leadership, of the tva, has cancelled, all of the layoffs, and given hundreds of american, workers their jobs back. They're being rehired, as we speak. In this administration. We live by two rules, buy american, and hire american, you can't do that, can't fire all our workers and hire people back. From other. Far away parts of the world. At lower prices. Especially, when they have to train. The people, and they can never train them as good as what you have because they've been there for many years they've done a fantastic, job, and they love the tva.
We Had a lot of people in the office the other day a lot of the, media was covering it they love. The tennessee, valley authority. So. And they're so proud to work for it but this happened and it was a terrible, thing so now they're going to get their jobs back they're all going to be getting their jobs back. Nearly every nation on earth continues, to combat, the virus. A number of countries, are seeing a, surge in new cases. Including, japan. The philippines. Major parts of europe cases, continue, to surge, in latin america, it's right now the most infected. Place anywhere in the world. They've more than doubled in recent. Days. Latin america, is doing. Very little testing. They're not really equipped to do that it's tough. In the united, states more than 80 percent, of. Jurisdictions. Report declining. Cases, we're doing. Very well you don't hear that too, often from the media but we're doing very well we have a very large country, very complex, country in a sense. More than half of america's. Counties, report, fewer than 20 cases, last. Week. So if you look at that more than half of america's. Counties, report. Fewer than, 20 cases, last week but, we have to remain, vigilant, we're doing very well but we have to remain. Vigilant. Nationally. The percentage, of emergency, room visits, with the coronavirus. Symptoms, is. Down to almost half, what it was in july. The southern, states that were very strong hot spots, not long ago arizona, texas, florida. Continued, to show. Significant. Improvement. Including, increased, availability. Of, hospital, beds. Arizona. Now has the smallest, number of coronavirus. In patients. Since mid-june. It's gone the governor was up. And. We had a great meeting. Governor, ducey. And the meeting was uh terrific, but. Since, mid-june. So they're doing well and it's going down heading down very rapidly, actually. Texas, is stabilizing. And improving, rapidly, with some progress. In the rio. Grande valley and. Other, communities, along the border with. Mexico, that had shown the biggest, increases, in hospitalizations. And deaths. Florida, is also stabilizing. Its statewide, positive, test rate. Continues, to decrease, from 13, percent, on july. 23rd, to 8 percent, this week. Florida's, done very well. It's going down it's heading down, actually, quite rapidly. And even miami, which was the hottest spot. In florida. Is heading downward. But florida, has done. Very well texas, has done very well and rapidly. And arizona, has done incredibly, well so, arizona's. Really been. A very rapid drop. New jersey and new york remains stable, with less than one percent of emergency, room visits, due to the. China virus. The illness. Took a devastating. Toll, on both states as you know, while both states. Really. Took the brunt, of the infection. Earlier, this year thankfully, we have not seen a resurgence. They've been doing a good job everybody's, working, very hard both governors, are working very very hard we're in touch with them we're. Supplying, them with a lot of. Supplies, as needed if needed. But they're needing very little right now they're in, very good shape. We will continue, to monitor, the new cases. Throughout this crisis, my administration. Has provided, extraordinary, support. Of people. Equipment. Medical, supplies. To the people of new jersey. The people of new york and to. The people of every state all of our states. We're carefully. Monitoring, california's, central, valley.
As Well as san diego, los angeles, sacramento. And san francisco. Which are. Starting, to. Stabilize. And, go down. We're carefully, watching, regions, from increasing, cases, including, boston. And chicago, as well as the midwest, we're watching them all very carefully. It's vital that all americans, work together to protect, the vulnerable. For this reason, we've delivered, vast amounts of protective, equipment, and testing, supplies, to nursing homes all across, america. We're focused, very much on the elderly, especially, the elderly, where they have. Heart problems. Or. Diabetes. Problems diabetes, is a big problem. Approximately. Half of all deaths have occurred in nursing homes and, long-term. Care facilities, it's an incredible, number when you hear half of the deaths have been in nursing homes and, long-term. Care facilities, and i will tell you that i met with. Owners, and. Representatives. Of nursing homes and they are very very, vigilant, they're doing a very good job now they've really. Done something that i think is special, they're doing very well in terms of. The virus. They're working very hard and. A, lot of things happened a lot of forces, came together, and hit the nursing homes very hard. But the representatives. Of nursing, homes in some cases the ownership, of nursing homes are working very hard the federal government, and the private sector. Have delivered more than 9 million, n95. Masks. 27, million surgical, masks. 3 million, face shields. 20 million, gowns, and. 668. Million, gloves. To new jersey alone think of that. We provided, 3.4. Billion dollars to the state of new jersey. In emergency. Relief funding, so we happen to be in new jersey, right now so those are great numbers the governor is working very hard. Governor murphy's, doing a good job we're working very closely with them. We've also provided, nearly five billion dollars, to new jersey, hospitals, and health care facilities. And through the paycheck, protection, program, that you all know so well. We provided, 23, billion dollars, to support more than 250. 000 new jersey. Small businesses, a lot of the small businesses, that you see that are opening now and going to do well. They're there because of what we did with paycheck, protection. On therapeutics. And vaccine. Updates. Three vaccine, candidates, have now moved, into, phase, three trials this would be years ahead of schedule. We have, done wonders, with the fda. I want to thank the fda, and all of the great people there and dr hahn. But. We have phase, three trials, already going on, which is uh most people would have said impossible, to even think about today pfizer. Announced that it will manufacture. Gilead's. Drug, remedia. Where we've had tremendous, success. Last week alone my administration. Procured, and distributed. Over one hundred and twenty thousand, vials of rem to severe. Enough to treat more than nineteen, thousand, patients. Plasma. Treatments. Continue, to show. Incredibly. Encouraging. Results. Really, incredible. What's going on. And if you can go to a blood bank if you've had this disease, and. And beat it. And there are a lot of people that have. If you could go to a blood bank. And donate, that would be a tremendous, help. The united, states, is only five percent, of the world's population. But we have conducted, over 25, percent, of the world's, testing, think of that five percent, and, we've given 25 percent of the world's testing. Any, proper global, analysis, of confirmed, cases. Must really take this into account, because we're constantly, showing, cases, cases, cases, cases, are up. Well the reason cases are up because we're doing, one of the reasons, we're doing a lot of testing, we're doing much more testing than anyone else. Close to 65. Million, tests. Where other countries, have done, very little testing, they'll test people if they get sick, they'll test people if they go into the hospital, they'll test certain, people, we're doing, tremendous, testing. And we're especially, doing big testing, at the nursing homes. Over the last week the testing, turnaround, times have declined, significantly. As our, major commercial, labs have begun pooling samples. And we've also been able to send out, many more of the tests, which are the 5-minute, to 15-minute, result, tests.
Testing, Samples, from multiple, patients. In one batch is also something that we're very focused, on and doing but, uh in the not-too-distant. Future we'll have. So many tests where it's a quick test they call it a quick test five minutes to 15 minutes, so we won't even have to worry too much about. The process, of sending, and receiving. Because if you figure it takes a day to send and a day, to receive, and let's say a day at the laboratory. That's three days right there, and the other tests you can have them in. Five to 15, minutes over the next two weeks i'll be pursuing, a major executive, order requiring. Health insurance, companies, to cover all pre-existing. Conditions. For all customers, that's a big thing. I've always. Been very strongly. In favor, we have to cover pre-existing. Conditions, so we will be pursuing, a major. Executive. Order. Requiring, health insurance, companies, to cover all pre-existing. Conditions. For all of its customers. This has never been done before, but it's time the people of our country, are properly, represented. And properly, taken, care of. This follows a series of executive, orders to lower. Drug prices, and lower prescription, drug prices, and significantly. We had the. Only. Year. Which was last year where drug prices, went down in 51, years. But we're talking about. Going down, at a level that nobody has even thought possible, now. Even though the drug companies are running very big ads on me but that's usually a reason. They're not too happy. They can't be too, thrilled. But they've made a lot of money, over the years and. Prices just go up not fair. This includes, a landmark, executive, order requiring, drug companies, to. Change americans. And charge americans. No more than. They charge to foreign countries. So they have to charge americans. No more than. They charge. To foreign countries, that means our country, can't be charged, more. So if germany, gets, drugs at a very small. Or low price. And we're paying. Many times that price in the united, states because, we pay for all of the research, the development, the promotion, and other things. We will get what's called a favorite nations, laws we're going to have and i signed a favorite nation's, laws. So that the united, states which is the number one purchaser, of drugs, by far in the world biggest purchaser, in the world, not even close. You have other countries, that are bigger. If you look at india china, etc. Not too many. But we have countries, that are bigger but not even close, in terms, of. Ordering, drugs, we're the number one country in the world. But we have a favorite nation so if somebody, has a. A drug. In many cases, it comes from a plant. The same plant. It comes from it's the same pill it's the same. Medicine, or medication. Uh whatever the lowest. Country, charges so if germany, charges, ten cents for a pill and we charge. Two dollars, and i only use germany as an example. Then we get that. We get that for, 10 cents so what's going to happen is that's going to go up a little bit and ours is going to come down a whole lot. So it's, favored nations, and i will tell you that big pharma is not happy. For too long we've been forced to subsidize. Cheaper drug prices, in foreign countries. We've subsidized, them to a level that nobody can believe nobody talked about it everybody, wondered how come every president, that runs for office says they're going to lower drug prices. And they never do they go through the right roof. Over the last administration. They went up. Like, skyrocketing. Skyrocketing. That's biden. Biden's not going to be able to do it, he has no clue. So what's happening. Is, we are going to be. Working, to. Get rid of all the subsidy, to foreign, lands and we're going to give. Essentially. All of the benefit. That frankly, they have as great negotiators. Those, benefits, are going to go to our people, so, it's called a favored nations, clause, and. Uh, you can look it up and you can see and. Nobody's, had the courage, to. Uh. Institute, it to. Call it because. It's a very big it's a very big step. But it's something, that is going to drive drug prices down 50 60 maybe even 70 percent. Talking about numbers that are unbelievable, i also signed an executive, order stopping. Middlemen. From taking, advantage, of. Medicare, patients, by charging, higher prices, to them and pocketing, the discounts. For themselves, these are some of the richest people. In the world. Everyone, talked about middlemen i've heard about them for years. On. Prescription. Drug prices. Middlemen. I guess you'd have to say to be politically, correct, middle men and women. But you never heard the middle, woman, before you heard middlemen, that's the. Term. And you know say what you want about the drug companies but at least the drug companies, produce.
A Product they produce, the pill they produce the medicine, the medication. But, these people make. Billions, and billions, of dollars, i don't know who they are but they're very rich. But they won't be so rich anymore this executive, order requires. These 30, billion, dollars in discounts, to go straight to the american, patients. So the middlemen is going to be knocked out. And i'm going to lose a lot of friends even though i have no idea who these people are. On opioids. I'm pleased to announce that my administration. Invested, an additional, 100, million dollars to fight the opioid, crisis, in rural america. In the midst of the china virus, pandemic. We also keep fighting to end the opioid. Epidemic. And we've done very, well we've done it was prior to the virus we're down 18, 19 and 20 percent. But when you think about it that means that you have 80 percent, and that's not acceptable. The wall is going up we have, 276. Miles of wall, it's having a tremendous. Impact, on drugs coming into our country already. It'll be finished. Toward the end of the year. And it's had a very very, big impact, on portland. Finally i'd like to. Address that situation. Portland, is a disaster, it's been a disaster, for, many many years. Brave federal law enforcement, office single-handedly. The officers, they single-handedly. Saved the federal courthouse, in portland, from. Lawless. Writers. And agitators. And anarchists. That's what they are. You know when you find molotov. Cocktails. In somebody's, knapsack, and they say no i'm just here to have a good time. These are really. Sick, disturbed, people. The disgraced, mayor of the city has ordered the. Police, to stand down in the face of writers. Leaving. His citizens, at the mercy of this mob, he was at the mercy of the mob too if you saw him go out there the other day it was terrible. He went out there and they wanted to rip him apart. But fortunately he had five people with him. Called security. Mayor wheeler, has, abdicated. His duty and surrendered, his city to the mop. As a result the mob descended, upon, a police precinct, and tried to burn it down tear it down rip it down. An act of attempted, murder. Left-wing, violent, extremism. Poses, an increasing, threat to our country. And, we stop, it, no idea how much we stop. But it's an ideology. We have to stop. When you. Commit, arson. This is a quote from the mayor. He's come a long way just made this quote. When you commit arson, with, an accelerant. In the. Attempt, to burn down a building. That is occupied. By people. Who have intentionally. Been trapped, inside. You're not a, demonstrator. Or you're not demonstrating. Said, mayor whelan. You are attempting. To commit murder that's come a long way, he's come a long way when he made that statement. What you're seeing in portland, is the radical, left's agenda, in action. Portland, is their. Road map for america. If the radical, left gets in. And they. Treat. Joe biden as a puppet, he's merely a puppet. But if the radical, left gets in they look at portland, as. A. Thing that they want that's what they want. Why. Who knows doesn't matter, it's a different, thinking. But it's a mess. And, i want to thank homeland security, they've done a fantastic. Job we had our people go in they stopped. Any intrusion, into the courthouse. And, the courthouse, was saved and other federal buildings were saved. And. We would like to be asked by the mayor and the governor. We will go in and stop, the problems, in portland, in 24, hours just like we did in minneapolis. After they. Really hurt that city. But, the national, guard went and did a phenomenal, job it was over in. Three hours. After watching, six days of horror. It ended in three hours, you all saw the scene of them walking right down the, street.
Uh Just. It was actually. An unfortunate. View but an incredible, view of, how to do things. So we would be able to solve the portland. Situation. Immediately, but we are. Supposed to be asked if we're not asked and if it continues, we'll have to make a decision, but it's a very easy thing for us to do we could stop it very quickly, it's been going on now for 76. Days. But our buildings, are very secure. If the democrats. Controlled, in. Washington, the democrats, control, of washington. They'd pass. With all of the, things they do legislation. Gutting, every single police department, in america. They truly do many of these people wanted to fund the police department. At a minimum they're going to stop money from going to the police department but in many cases they actually wanted to fund completely, the police department. No city no town. And no suburb, would be safe. Your suburbs, would be a disaster, your cities your towns would be a disaster. They want every city to be a portland, or to be a chicago. Which is totally out of control, and we're waiting for the mayor we've sent people in to help them. From an intelligence, standpoint. But, we're waiting for them to call the governor, the mayor. We could do a very good job in chicago, nobody's ever seen anything like that, this country. And yet, nationwide. Numbers are good despite the chicagos, and the portlands, and frankly the new yorks when you look at what's happened in new york. 348. Increase, in the last number of months. Nobody's seen anything like that so sad to me it's so sad, because i love new york. And it's so sad and all it is is horrible, horrible, incompetent. Management. By. Politicians. That truly don't know what they're doing. So just like we saved the courthouse, we will save the united, states of america. And. A vast majority. Of people agree with me. A vast majority. Most people, they don't speak up as much as they could. But we know they're there and everybody else knows they're there too. So with that i'll take a few questions, from the media they've been here. For a long time and they've been waiting outside for a long time and they wait for these moments. It's always a lot of fun. Please go ahead. No you go ahead. Oh thank you mr president i have a couple of questions on the negotiations, with capitol hill.
These Executive, orders you mentioned do you have a timeline, on when you're going to sign them or, you know it could be by, the end of the week they're being, drawn by the lawyers right now, they work very nicely. Uh it would be nice to be able to do it with the democrats, but they're really. Just interested, in one thing and that's protecting, people that have not done a good job in, managing, cities and states, and. Nothing to do with covet, nothing to do with, or little to do, they want to be able to. Make up for many many years in some cases decades, of bad management, we can't do that so that's what they want they want to do that and we don't want to do that are you concerned, that about the legality, of these executive orders no not at all no somebody, well you always get sued i mean everything you do you get sued i was sued on the travel ban. And we won i was sued on a lot of things when we won so we'll see, probably, we get sued but. People feel that we can do it jeff go ahead, thank you sir. Mr president, the intelligence, agencies, today said that russia. Is already meddling in this year's election, to hurt joe biden. And that china is considering, meddling. To hurt you, do you believe that intelligence. And what do you plan to do about it it could be i mean i could be, very much i think that, the last person russia wants to see in office, is donald trump because nobody's been tougher on russia than i have ever. Uh. Well i don't care what anybody, says that nobody. Nobody, with any common sense would say, do it look at what we've done with our military, look at what we've done in exposing, the pipeline, with billions of dollars, going to russia. Look at all of the things we've done with nato. Where i've raised 130. Billion dollars a year from countries that were delinquent, and now they're paying all of this money, and the 130. By the way. 130. Billion dollars not million billion, goes, to 400. Billion over a few years. And that's all, uh money to protect against russia.
Uh China would love, us. To have an election where donald trump. Lost to sleepy joe biden they would dream they would own our country. If, joe biden, was president, china would own our country. And you said another country what was the third country, no just those two no no you didn't you didn't say then the report the report said iran, also. But you didn't say that, iran would love to see. Iran would love to see me not be president. And i'll make this statement. If and when we win. We will make deals with iran, very quickly, we'll make deals with north korea very quickly, and whatever happened to the war in north korea you haven't seen that have you. If. I didn't win the election, in 2016. Our country, would now be maybe would be over by now but, in war with north korea everybody said oh trump will get us at war not just the opposite. And we actually have. A relationship. With north korea which is something that. Was never established. By, the previous, administration. You would have been in war with north korea and it would have been a very bad war. So north korea. Whether you look at iran. Every one of them, will make a deal with us very quickly iran is dying to make a deal but they want to see because they'd much rather make a deal with biden. Because if they make a deal with the united, states if china. Makes a deal with the united states with biden. In charge they would own our country. Look what i've done i've taken, billions, tens of billions, of dollars from china. China was having the worst year they've had in 67. Years, and we were having the best year we've ever had. With big tax cuts with big regulation. Cuts. We've rebuilt, our military. We became. Independent. In terms of energy, with the energy, leader of the world. Uh we were having the best year we've ever had by the way african-american. Asian-american. Hispanic-american. Unemployment, numbers the best in the history of our country. All things and many other groups too including, women. Including, high school diploma, no high school diploma, college, diploma. Everybody, was doing better, the last thing that russia wants. And china wants. And iran, once. Would be for donald trump to win yesterday, just to follow up what do you plan to do about that interference, sir. Uh. Well we're going to look at it very clear, closely, you tell me that this came out a little while ago. And i've heard that it came out it came out just a little while ago, and we're going to look at that very closely, but you started, off with. Russia. Why don't you start off with china. Do you think china is maybe a bigger threat, i mean i think maybe it is i mean you'll have to figure it out but we're going to watch, all of them we have to be very careful. The biggest risk that we have is male in balance, because with the mail-in ballots, called universal, mail-in ballots. It's much, it is a much easier thing for a foreign power. Whether it's russia. China. Iran. North korea. Many others, people, countries, you wouldn't expect. It's much easier for them to forge ballots, and send them in it's much easier for them to cheat. With universal. Mail-in, ballots. So i think one of the things we'll have to look at is exactly, that but, that's a big problem. That's a big problem you saw in new york they called the winner but they have no idea what the vote is please go ahead, mr president we've watched these negotiations. Go on for weeks, do you think if you had been more directly involved we would be in a different position i'm totally involved, no they call me all the time they tell me how they're doing with nancy and chuck. But in my opinion they're just using it as an excuse. To try and you know chuck schumer came out with a strong statement, today that you have to get back into school because it's good for the economy but he doesn't do it he's in practice what he preaches. No my people, steve mnuchin. And. Our, wonderful, chief of staff mark meadows. They're constantly, on the phone with me i'm totally. Involved, with it, and. We are going to do it in a way that's just much easier, we gave them their chance. But they view it as an election. Enhancement. You know you talk about foreign countries. Cheating on the election well the democrats, are cheating on the election because that's exactly what they're doing, if you look at what they're doing even with these negotiations. That's an influence, and an unfair, influence, on an election. But we're going to win anyway yeah please go ahead when was the last time you spoke to speaker pelosi, though we're at this historic, moment why haven't you spoken well we'll see we'll see what happens but right now they're not ready and they're not ready because frankly i don't think they care about.
People, I think they care about their politicians. That have done a terrible job running the cities and states democrat. Cities and states. That are bleeding, money, that have been so badly, run you take a look at, baltimore. And you take a look at so many different cities including, the ones i've, already, mentioned. Take a look at what's going on. And, they want lots of money to. Keep, keep it going for many years they've been bad. So all i'm doing is we're having it out we're finally having it out. Yeah please, mr president if you uh. Go ahead on your own on. Uh. Unemployment, insurance. Uh i'm wondering about where you're going to get the money to pay for that without congress, and, will people still get six hundred dollars we have the money, we have the money we'll still get 600. A week. Uh i won't say that yet you'll see that when it happens but we have the money. We have it justin, we have plenty of money yeah please go ahead thank you mr president, you said that the pandemic, is disappearing. But we lost 6, 000 americans this week, and just in this room, you have, dozens of people, you're not following the guidelines, in new jersey which they you should not have no they don't. Have. You're wrong of that because it's a political, activity they have exceptions, political, activity. And it's also a peaceful, protest. So when you have, and as you know. They asked if they could be. You know they a number of, and to me they, look like they all have pretty much all have masks. But uh. You know you have an exclusion, in the lord says peaceful, protest, or political, activity, right, in fact specifically. Yeah it says, exactly, political, activity, or peaceful protest. And you could call it political, activity, but i i'd call it peaceful, protest because they heard you were coming up. And they know the news is fake they understand, it better than anybody. And. They asked whether or not. They asked whether or not they can be here like the question about russia. He doesn't mention iran, was in the report, he doesn't mention or he mentions very late that china was in the report. Because that's the way they are they're not. If the press, in this country. Were honest, it wasn't corrupt, if it wasn't fake, our country would be so, much further ahead, but we're doing really great. Thank you all very much, thank you. Is. Uh.
