Trump speaks to press after threatening government shutdown


WITH REPORTERS ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF A GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN. HERE WE GO.>>BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I THINK IT WAS A FRIENDLY MEETING.YOU SAW THE BEGINNINGS OF IT. IT WORKED OUT TO BE GOOD. I LIKED THEM FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME AND I RESPECT THEM BOTH. WE MADE A LOT OF PROGRESS. IF YOU LOOK AT CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM, THAT’S A BIG THING. WE’VE BEEN LOOKING TO DO THAT FOR MANY YEARS AND THEY HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO DO IT. HOPEFULLY WE’VE DONE IT SOON IN A BIPARTISAN WAY. THE BILL AS YOU KNOW, YOU PROBABLY HEARD TODAY, WAS PUT UP BY MITCH McCONNELL HAS BEEN TERRIFIC AND IT’S GOING TO BE VOTED ON VERY SHORTLY, MAYBE FRIDAY. VERY, VERY SOON. WE’RE LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT. WE MADE TREMENDOUS STRIDES ON THE FARM BILL. WE’RE WORKING ON BORDER SECURITY. YOU KNOW, REPUBLICANS WANT VERY STRONG BORDER SECURITY. HONESTLY, THE DEMOCRATS, MOST OF THEM, HARD TO BELIEVE, MOST OF THEM WANT OPEN BORDERS. THAT LEADS TO CRIME AND OTHER PROBLEMS. ONE OF THE PROBLEMS THAT PEOPLE DON’T TALK ABOUT, YOU HAVE A TREMENDOUS MEDICAL PROBLEM COMING INTO OUR COUNTRY. TREMENDOUS PROBLEMS. PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT. I DON’T LIKE TALKING ABOUT IT, BUT THESE ARE THE DIFFICULTIES OF WHAT THEY WANT TO DO. SO WE WANT STRONG BORDERS, WE WANT PEOPLE COMING INTO OUR COUNTRY LEGALLY THROUGH A PROCESS. WE WANT PEOPLE THAT ARE GOING TO LOVE AND HELP OUR COUNTRY. I DON’T THINK THEY FEEL THE SAME WAY OR MAYBE THEY JUST DON’T WANT US TO GET A VOTE. COULD BE THAT, TOO. IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THEY DON’T WANT SOME FORM OF PROTECTION. WITH THAT, I HAVE TO SAY I THOUGHT IT WAS A VERY GOOD MEETING. WHEN YOU LEFT, WHEN THE PRESS LEFT, WE HAD A FAIRLY LONG MEETING AND WE DISCUSSED A LOT OF GREAT SUBJECTS. MIKE, COME OVER. MIKE PENCE.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>I DON’T MIND. I COULD HAVE DEBATED CHUCK SCHUMER FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME. HE WAS SAYING IT’S YOURS, IT’S YOUR IDEA. I SIDE I DON’T MIND. I DON’T KNOW. WHAT DO YOU THINK? WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? I DON’T MIND HAVING TO ISSUE OF BORDER SECURITY ON MY SIDE. IF WE HAVE TO CLOSE DOWN THE COUNTRY OVER BORDER SECURITY, I ACTUALLY LIKE THAT IN TERMS OF AN ISSUE, BUT I DON’T WANT IT TO BE AN ISSUE. I WANT IT TO BE SOMETHING THE COUNTRY NEEDS. IT’S NOT AN ISSUE. IT’S SOMETHING THE COUNTRY NEEDS. IT COMMON SENSE. WE NEED PROTECTION. WE NEED BORDER SECURITY. WE NEED SECURITY FROM DRUGS POURING INTO OUR COUNTRY. THEY’RE COMING IN THROUGH THAT SOUTHERN BORDER. WE NEED THE WALL. WE NEED BORDER SECURITY AND PART OF BORDER SECURITY IS A WALL. I DON’T MIND OWNING THAT ISSUE. CHUCK’S PROBLEM IS THAT, YOU KNOW, WHEN WE LAST CLOSED DOWN, THAT WAS HIS IDEA. HONESTLY, HE GOT KILLED. HE DOESN’T WANT TO OWN IT. I SAID RATHER THAN US DEBATING WHO IS OWNING IT, I’LL TAKE IT. I’LL TAKE IT. IF WE CLOSE DOWN THE COUNTRY,LY TAKE IT BECAUSE WE’RE CLOSING IT DOWN FOR BORDER SECURITY AND I THINK I WIN THAT EVERY SINGLE TIME. OKAY? THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH. I APPRECIATE IT.

  1. But what about the kids and famliy .. How would you feel like if I came in your house and take your kids from you…You would not like that . everyone just don't like other people that don't look like you. This is one thing I love everyone I mean everyone and everything. I don't look at you and think you should leave… I think everyone should love everyone.. If you put the wall up they are still gonna come some how or some way… Just stop and think about everything and just put the money where it needs to be.. He'll give me some of it. Y'all love just sending it everywhere help the people that needs it…. And every year y'all shouting down it nothing new its every year.. And trump your wife ain't from USA. Why are you trying to stop everyone coming in… Don't you love your wife?? Like I said before I love everyone and my family and kids…. Please help the people that needs it… That wall don't need anything they are still gonna make it over…. I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!! AND I HOPE YOU HAVE A MARRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!

  2. A FOX NEWS REPORTER. FOR A UNITED STATE'S AMBASSADOR?? TO THE DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTERS GIVE YOURSELF AN APPLAUSE. FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE .

  3. Why don't we put a stop to giving welfare medicaid section 8 our tax dollars for the 69% of people who illegal. . In one year we can have the Wall paid ten over. It's disgusting. Why do i have work and get my money to pay for them to live? Please put a end to this.

  4. how more racist can building a wall on the mexico border be? what about cananda ohh right they are white so cananda is ok? if its border security shouldn't it be both borders? this president is so racist and stupid how could you as a republican stand by him?

  5. Build the wall so illegal immigration wont be an issue anymore ..I rather have my taxes go to that than funding housing and welfare to illegal immigrants

  6. The gov't runs all drugs now and the drugs are lab made and are way worse than the natural or likeable drugs of the past, the illegal drugs today are killers and way more addictive. Also, the doctors are the real pushers working for the Gov't., turning a blind eye to the harm of their prescriptions .

  7. What is a wall to people fighting for their lives, who brave crossing the Rio Grande, the killer desert, and the “big” oceans? A wall! Such an archaic idea! An old mans idea! What about new tech? Radars, drones, something intelligent. If we are really “afraid” of people bringing crime, disease, etc, a wall, against that fear, is as effective as a humongous Bandaid! Trump is not taking border security seriously, otherwise, he would be willing to consider other options. It is all a distraction from real issues! It is a 5 billion tantrum! I want my taxes to be used wisely. No wall!

  8. Wow, how refreshing, Donald Trump will actually ask, "What do you think". The others just stick to their nonsense. IF you bring Trump a better idea that accomplishes putting America and Americans in a better place he will change his mind. He doesnt care who brings the idea. Which is truly refreshing. Democrats are stuck on stupid.

  9. Look at all the diseases making a come back after over 60 years children are dieing they say they don't have any idea where these illnesses are coming back if you have half a brain you know.

  10. Again, lies . . . NO ONE wants “open borders”. I just wish he could “win” (like he loves to do) WHILE telling the truth., but that means being a mature, self-aware, compassionate person which he is not.

  11. so none of the “down” votes show up in the comments . . . very strange . . . oh, yeah, need to lie and cheat to win . . .

  12. “A shutdown falls on the President’s lack of leadership. He can’t even control his party and get people together in a room. A shutdown means the President is weak” — Donald Trump, 2013

  13. Why do you believe his lying ass He is a demented with demented followers. Breaking laws left and right. Unable to read. Lies and can’t stop pos

  14. Those righteous loudmouth commenters, braying about 'immigrants invading our country and stealing our jobs" should come downstairs sometime with me at dawn, in the rain and cold. I am 70 years old. I spent 30+ of those years as a building super. And I invite y'all to hang out…watch, as a car pulls up outside, and a young undocumented man or woman (usually from Mexico, Ecuador, or West Africa)… on a dead run in the dark, dashes out, pitching a rubber banded NY Times by a building front door, then sprints down the street – tossing others, all along the way. Far as the eye can see. Carrying large stacks of newspapers on his/her shoulder, or an overloaded hand truck into big high rise apartment houses. This happens each morning – everywhere in lower Manhattan, and elsewhere throughout the metropolitan NY area. Their employer is one of the City's largest newspaper delivery services. Those workers earn minimum wage, (if that) no benefits, no insurance, no chance for advancement, nothing. This is how many undocumented people begin, willingly accepting jobs the rest of us shun, in disdain. So If I were you I'd be careful how you deride the life circumstances of persons you will never meet, or know.. BTW If any of you want THAT job – (ones these 'dirty immigrants' are 'stealing' from Americans..I mean) delivering papers in the the icy pre-dawn, 24/7, 365? I can hook you up. I know the bosses; I also speak Spanish.

  15. Okay, I don't agree with Trump 95% of the time. But hear me out. I don't trust him, what-so-ever. To the many publicly known inconsistencies, that he brings upon himself. Even if he compromised his really personal values, for the backing off a political campaign through United

    He says one thing, does another.

    I don't care, if some news is biased. I don't care if I disagree with other people on ever changing issues. Let's be honest, It's hard to stay on top of the political rhetoric, no matter which side of the isle you're on.

    I personally, side with the left. Not because of my upbringing, where I've lived, what I've accomplished.

    By watching the world around me, talking to people…. Families in crisis, employees that need to do their jobs, businesses that people rely on… I've heard a many great personal stories.

    A common theme, over the years, that I've taken to heart, is one, that regardless of how you see the world, whether or not your daily routine actually has political values that you can say you stand for.. Or, the alternative….

    Life happens. No one has a perfect path to an easy life. Instead of making every journey an individual one, we all work together. Who's pockets are bigger… Just won't work.

    Ultimately, creating legal citizenship, so it's available to anyone that seeks asylum, should be our core principle. Especially if that individual really cares about how to contribute to others in life.

    We're missing out of one of humanities core heart driven values… And that's to suffer.

    There are so many great struggles around the world, that condition the hearts of people, to care for those around them. Sense of community.

    How can anyone fail, if everyone treats their peers like family?

    A dream? Probably. Spare me your bleak outlook.

  16. You idiots do realize regular, hard working people work for our government. They won't get paid. U wouldn't be saying "shut it down" if u worked for government.

  17. I'm mexican, but if I was an American I would've voted for Trump, for sure. With the last elections down here in Mexico, we see our President truly doing all he can to make changes for good. Let me tell you, even though President Trump is not the most loved guy around here, I can see him really trying to help the American people.

    You guys need to support him to make those good changes. And yeah, the wall is a good thing. Guns in Mexico from the US so the narco can fight the police here and protect the drugs later taken into the US and so on and so forth. That is not some crazy idea from a bad President, that's a President who has the balls to call things by its name.

  18. I Love my president…. We are strong again… Listen my fiancee is in the Philippines and we are waiting for 90 Visa legally and it may take 9 months but that's good because our President has time to make sure there are no Shenanigans. And that it's not a fake marriage… Trust me you have to provide tons of documents from both countries and you should because if you are honest and have nothing to hide than there's no worries… God bless America

  19. The government don’t shut down. The government checks still out . The government still gets payed and the military and law enforcement. He thinking of the country he putting us first .

  20. This guy is a gift a true gift from God. We've needed him for some time. Maybe not so PC in his wording but who really cares? Not me! 2020 he will also get my vote!

  21. 咱们先不管他讲的对和错,就他这个年纪讲的话完胜习近平! 这两个人感觉年纪反了,习近平讲话感觉更像老人!

  22. What a moron. I am not even american and I hate that douche. When he is gone the whole world will be saying good riddance to bad rubbish.

  23. What you people do not understand is the long game.
    The whole world is watching you people.
    China, and god forbid even russia is looking like a safer bet at present than the US is.
    Get rid if this moron and then try to make america great again. This guy is running the US into the ground.
    Look at the international media, the world is not just sick and tired if the US, we are laughing at you.
    The US is finished, china is the next super power. Good luck.

  24. The choice is clear shut down the government or shut down the border. Shut both down for all I care. This nonsense of UN led invasions into every democracy around the world HAS TO STOP.

  25. Is it or aint true or that the majority of illegal immigrants come here legally and just stay when the visa expires? The wall will stop that nicely.

  26. When this dufus finally gets the wall built, he needs to climb over to the other side of it, and don't come back. He'll be right at home with all those criminals in Mexico. Maybe he can steal a few billion more down there, and never have to answer for it.

  27. The reality is that both Trump and his supporters don’t care about government or the people of this nation.
    All they focus on is Trump.
    Being a Trump supporter is not like being a “conservative” or a “liberal”. It is not about ideas or policy proposals or principals. It’s not really even political. Being part of Trump’s support base is only about worshiping and accommodating Trump at all times. It is a cult of personality.

  28. Its like NATZI GERMANY.. Conservatives only have half of fox news and half of alternatives media.. Soon they will tell us what stations to listen to.. Nancy and Chuck are stazi officer's

  29. Shuts downs:Who was president? Gerald Ford 10 days
    Who was president? Jimmy Carter 12 days
    Who was president? Ronald Reagan 2 days
    Who was president? Bill Clinton 21 days.
    Who was President? Barack Obama. 17 days

  30. "PRESS LETS GO. MAKE YOU'RE WAY OUT(before you ask Trump a single question making him look bad)"

    Also.. how does it make sense to shut down the government if border security is paramount? Wouldnt shutting it down make the problem even worse? 🤔

  31. Who are the people behind him in this press conference? And 3 Priests? Who are they? What is up with the huge cross necklace and the pimped out one behind him?

  32. Having a leader is hard in America , too many groups wanting it their way and throwing tantrums if they dont get it .Get behind your president and your country , at least until the next election then vote again , remember every time since the first president there has been a winner and a loser ,not so hard to swallow its the constitution .

  33. While Ronald Reagan and our founder fathers must be rolling over in their grave, Russian Vladimir Putin and the Russian military simply can’t believe their luck.. The Russian New Agency recently reported that Putin has slept the best in the last two years than he ever has.  I wonder why?

  34. No one noticed he has Jesuit priests around him?? 🤔🤔 One wearing a necklace with Lucifer on it in a cross🤔🤔

  35. People, wake up and pay attention. Look at the wolf's dressed as sheep in the back. Father's in the back. Government and church don't go well at all. Look at what happened to Rome. May yah (Jesus) be with us all.

  36. He says he would shut it all down if he had to for the security of our boarder he womt do it of necessary so meaning the Democrats are blowing this out of proportion

  37. Can anyone explain to me WTF is this two preacher doing next to Trump and why there is not Jesus Christ on the Cruz

  38. Is anyone see something weird on this video ,,,,,if not let me tell you what's those guys on his right looks like preacher but they are not ,,,i never see a cruz with not Jesus Christ on it that's not good that other guy can't see what's on his ,,,,,,this is really creepy and his talking that a lot people is going hungry and sick like it he ready knows thats goint to hapen

  39. JUST IN…Trump Cave hahahaha what a loser! Ran like a dog beetween his legs. Not a penny for his wall, reopening Govt. A loser as always. Without the russian hackers, like last November midterm, he is and always be a loser.

  40. Feel bad for the few Trump cult followers. They followed him because they keep on losing in life, hoping Trump is the "Mesiah", only to lead them to more depressing situations. Trump is like the new Jim Jones. Dont drink the Kool Aid! Go back to the light!!!

  41. Haha whatever you say, Trump caved today-what a coward. No balls at all. So no walls , not a penny..Pelosi slap your Trump, Govt reopening. Trump after begging, got nothing. Love it!!! Like a dog with his tail between his legs. 🤣😂🤣😆
