Trump’s News Conference at the United Nations – September 26 2018

During an 83-minute Trump-special news conference on the periphery of the United Nations General Assembly, Trump unloaded on a large number of topics. Amongst the topics Trump discussed were his tariffs on China, how he didn’t like the raising of interest rates, how he had been accused of sexual assault, false allegations, his “beautiful” letters from Kim Jong Un, Judge Kavanaugh is a “tremendous genius,” the “evil people” – some of whom are Democrats, and how the UN weren’t laughing at him, they were laughing with him.

On tariffs on China

“With China, as you know, we put out an announcement today. They would like to see me lose an election because they’ve never been challenged like this. But I want to open up China to our farmers, and to our industrialists, and our companies. And China is not open. But we’re open to them. They charge us 25, 35, 55 percent for things, and we charge them nothing, in terms of coming in to the country.”

“Cars, they’re at 25 percent, and we’re at 2 percent and 2.5 percent and don’t even collect it, but we collect it now. So we’re doing very well in our situation with China on trade. I have a great relationship with the president of China, President Xi.”

“But it’s got to be a two-way street, and for 25 years, or longer, was not. And trillions and trillions of dollars was taken out of the United States for the benefit of China, and we just can’t have that. We have to make it fair. So we’re at $250 billion now, at 25 percent interest, and a lot of money is coming into our coffers.”

And it’s had no impact on our — absolutely, by the way, no impact on our economy, which I said it wouldn’t. In fact, steel is like the hottest industry there is. If you look at what happened with steel, we’re charging a 25 percent tariff for the dumpers. They dump massive amounts of steel.”

On interest rates

“So we are doing great, as a country. Unfortunately, they just raised interest rates a little bit, because we are doing so well. I’m not happy about that, because I know it’s going to be a question. I am not happy about it. I’d rather pay down debt or do other things, create more jobs. So I’m worried about the fact that they seem to like raising interest rates. We can do other things with the money.”

“And — but they raised them, and they’re raising them because we’re doing so well, you know. We’re doing much better than I had projected, in terms of when I was campaigning. I said, “We were going to do this. And we’re doing much better than — than anybody ever thought possible.” And I will say, if others got in, it would’ve been just the opposite because they were going to put restrictions on, they were going to put regulations on. They were going to choke the economy, as it was already choking, but it would’ve been worse, and they were going to raise your taxes. That’s what they want to do now, if they ever got control, which I don’t think they’ll have control for a long time.”

On sexual assault allegations against himself

“I was accused by four or five women who got paid a lot of money to make up stories about me. We caught them and the mainstream media refused to put it on television. They refused to even write about it. There were four women, and maybe more. I think the number’s four or five. But one had her mortgage paid off her house, $52,000. Another one had other things happen. And the one that reported it I believe was offered $750,000 to say bad things about me.”

“And she’s the one that reported it. This woman is incredible. She reported instead of taking the money. So I’ve had numerous accusations about me.”

On being famous and false allegations

“I’ve had a lot of false charges made against me. I’m a very famous person, unfortunately. I’ve been a famous person for a long time. But I’ve had a lot of false charges made against me, really false charges. I know friends that have had false charges. People want fame, they want money, they want whatever. So when I see it, I view it differently than somebody sitting home watching television where they say oh, Judge Kavanaugh this or that.”

On his letters from Kim Jong Un

“We have a very good relationship. He likes me. I like him. We get along. He wrote me two of the most beautiful letters. When I showed one of the letters, just one, to Prime Minister Abe, he said this is actually a groundbreaking letter. This is an incredible — this is a historic letter. And it is a historic letter. It’s a beautiful — it’s a beautiful piece of art.”

“And I think we’re going to make a deal. Will we make a deal, Steve? I don’t really know. But I think we’re going to. In the meantime — and, I’ve said a — I don’t want to bore you, no rockets, no missiles, no nuclear tests, you know, for over a year we — you haven’t seen.”

On Judge Kavanaugh

“He’s a tremendous man. He’s a tremendous genius. He’s a great intellect. He was, I believe, number one at Yale. Is that a correct statement? Number one in his class at Yale. He was a great student in law.”

On the Democrats treatment of Judge Kavanaugh

“Somebody could come and say 30 years ago, 25 years ago, 10 years ago, 5 years ago, he did a horrible thing to me. He did this, he did that, he did that and, honestly, it’s a very dangerous period in our country. And it’s being perpetuated by some very evil people — some of them are Democrats, I must say — because some of them know that this is just a game that they’re playing. It’s a con game. It’s at the highest level. We’re talking about the United States Supreme Court.”

 “This is a very big moment for our country because you have a man who’s very outstanding, but he’s got very strong charges against him, probably charges that nobody’s going to be able to prove,” the president said. “It’s happened to me many times, where false statements are made.”

On How the United Nations weren’t laughing at him, they were laughing with him

“And I was in front of a large group of highly professional people, most of whom are from either other countries or the United Nations, people that aren’t big into clapping, applauding, smiling. And I heard a little rustle, as I said our country is now stronger than ever before — it’s true. I mean, it is true. And I heard a little rustle and I said it’s true.”

“And I heard smiles — and I said, oh, I didn’t know that’s be like a — they weren’t laughing at me. They were laughing with me. We had fun. That was not laughing at me.”

“So the fake news said people laughed at President Trump. They didn’t laugh at me. People had a good time with me. We were doing it together. We had a good time. They respect what I’ve done. The United States is respected again.”
