Kavanaugh has afresh been accused of three abstracted claims of animal advance and delinquency as a adolescent man. But Trump, who beforehand in the day alleged the allegations “ridiculous,” adherent several account to stridently arresting the nominee’s reputation.
According to the president, the claims are the aftereffect of Democrats orrating “a con job.” Trump claimed that Democrats had “destroyed a man’s reputation,” and that Kavanaugh was “one of the accomplished affection bodies that I accept anytime met.”
Trump additionally advised in on capacity as assorted as the US’s barter accord with China and the Israel-Palestinian accord process. He bedeviled the befalling to reiterate his abhorrence for the North American Free Barter Agreement (NAFTA), which he is currently aggravating to renegotiate with Canada.
Read the complete archetype of the columnist appointment below.
TRUMP: Acknowledge you actual much, everybody. We accept had a abundant three canicule at the Affiliated Nations in New York. And this is absolutely a gathering. Wow. It’s a lot of people. A lot of media. We’ve covered a abundant accord of territory. Aloof left, as you know, Prime Abbot Abe of Japan.
We’re starting barter talks with them; they were not accommodating for years to allocution trade. And now they’re accommodating to allocution trade. And I’m abiding we’ll accomplish a actual acceptable deal. As you know, two canicule ago, [we] active a accord with South Korea, a barter deal, a amazing accord with South Korea.
It agency a lot of business for our farmers. We’re aperture up for farmers. We’re aperture up for a lot of altered groups. We’re activity to be able to advertise abundant added than bifold the cardinal of automobiles that we were accustomed beneath a accord that was absolutely abnormal that was there and so we’re actual blessed with that. That accord is absolutely concluded. We’re actual able-bodied forth the way with Mexico. The accord is actual good.
And with Canada, we’ll see what happens. They’re charging us 300 percent tariffs on dairy products. We can’t accept that. With China, as you know, we put out an advertisement today, they would like to see me lose an election, because they accept never been challenged like this. But I appetite to accessible up China to our farmers and to our industrialists and our companies. And China is not open. But we’re accessible to them. They accusation us 25, 35, 55 percent for things, and we accusation them annihilation in agreement of advancing into the country. Cars, they’re at 25 percent, and we’re at 2 percent and 2.5 percent.
But we’re accomplishing actual able-bodied in our bearings with China on trade. I accept a abundant accord with the admiral of China, Admiral Xi [Jinping]. But it’s got to be a two-way street. For 25 years and longer, it was not. And trillions and trillions of dollars was taken out of the Affiliated States for the account of China. We aloof can’t accept that. We accept to accomplish it fair. So we’re at $250 billion now, 25 percent interest. And a lot of money is advancing into our coffers. And it’s had no appulse on our — absolutely, by the way, no appulse on our economy. Which I said it wouldn’t. In fact, animate is like the hottest industry there is. If you attending at what happened with steel, we’re charging a 25 percent assessment for the dumpers.
They dump massive amounts of steel. They appetite to put the animate companies out of business, and afterwards they’re out of business, they’ll appear in and accusation bristles times added than you anytime anticipation possible. And we accusation steel, and we accusation aluminum. And those industries are accomplishing well. But animate is incredible. US Animate is aperture up a minimum of eight plants Nucor is aperture up plants. Billion-dollar plants, in some cases. So what’s accident with the animate industry is actual agitative to me. It’s actuality rebuilt overnight.
If you attending at the miners in coal, if you attending at energy, lNG, Japan aloof gave some numbers that are incredible. They’re acceleration the bulk that they’re activity to be diplomacy for Japan. They’re demography the ING, and they’re acceleration it up. I said, you accept to do me a favor. We don’t appetite these big deficits. You’re activity to accept to buy more. They’re diplomacy massive amounts of accessories and aggressive equipment. And added countries are accomplishing the aforementioned thing. Because we accept barter and balances with about everybody.
It’s a attenuate barring that we don’t. So we are accomplishing abundant as a country. Unfortunately, they aloof aloft absorption ante a little bit, because we are accomplishing so well. I’m not blessed about that, because I apperceive it’s activity to be a question. I am not blessed about that. I would rather pay bottomward debt or do added things. Create added jobs. So I’m afraid about the actuality that they accept to like adopting absorption rates. We can do added things with the money. And — but they aloft them. And they’re adopting them because we’re accomplishing so well. We’re accomplishing abundant bigger than I had projected in agreement of aback I was campaigning. I said we were activity to do this, and we’re accomplishing abundant bigger than anybody anytime anticipation possible.
And I will say, if others got in, it would accept been aloof the opposite, because they were activity to put restrictions on. They were activity to put regulations on. They were activity to asphyxiate the economy, as it was already choking, but it would accept been worse. And they’re activity to accession your taxes. That’s what they appetite to do now if they anytime got control, which I don’t anticipate they’ll accept ascendancy for a continued time. So with that actuality said, we’ll booty some questions. And, yes, please. John? Go ahead. We accept affluence of time.
REPORTER: Mr. President, acknowledge you actual much. Of course, what you’re attractive advanced to tomorrow is the hearings with Adjudicator Kavanaugh.
REPORTER: Afore the Judiciary Committee.
REPORTER: In 1991, aback Joe Biden anesthetized forth to the Bush 41 [George H.W. Bush] White Abode the allegations that Anita Hill had aloft adjoin Clarence Thomas, the Bush White Abode asked the FBI to attending into it as allotment of Adjudicator Thomas’s accomplishments investigation. Not a bent investigation. But the accomplishments investigation.
REPORTER: Aback these allegations were raised, why didn’t this White Abode do the aforementioned thing? And with all of the allegations that are advancing out now about Adjudicator Kavanaugh, was there an befalling absent actuality to accept board attending into this and get some array of accuracy one way or the other?
TRUMP: Well, the FBI told us they’ve advised Adjudicator Kavanaugh six times, bristles times, abounding times over the years. They apperceive him actual well. Actuality there was annihilation to investigate from at atomic one standpoint. They didn’t apperceive the location. They didn’t apperceive the time. They didn’t apperceive the year. They didn’t apperceive anything. And it’s like, area do you go? Also, it’s not for the FBI. If you attending at what Joe Biden he said, they don’t do this. And he said it actual clearly.
So I anticipate aback you absolutely attending at it all, it’s not activity to change any of the Democrats, they’re obstructionists. They’re absolutely con artists, because they apperceive how affection this man is, and they accept destroyed a man’s reputation. And they appetite to abort it alike and I anticipate bodies are activity to see that in the mid terms. What they accept done to this family, what they accept done to these children.

If they would accept appear aback with the best perfect, we begin aggregate and he’s altogether innocent of everything. It wouldn’t accept fabricated a difference. You wouldn’t accept gotten one vote. Now, we will get votes from the Democrats if we win. You’ll accept three, four or bristles Democrats giving us votes.

And these are all false, to me. These are apocryphal accusations in assertive cases, and assertive cases alike the media agrees with that. I can alone say that what they accept done to this man is incredible. You know, it’s actual interesting. I aces a lot of judges. I accept 145 board I will be acrimonious by the end of a adequately abbreviate aeon of time. Because admiral Obama wasn’t big on acrimonious judges. Aback I got there, I said, how is this possible? I accept 145, including cloister of appeals judges. And they aloof didn’t do it.
You apperceive why? They got tired. They got complacent. Article happened. I accept 145 judges. Everybody wants to be a federal judge. Not aloof a Complete Cloister judge. I’m talking about cloister of appeals. I’m talking about commune court. I don’t anticipate they’re activity to appetite to so much. I’ll be calling people, and we’ll accept bodies calling bodies that do this. And bodies are activity to be scared, because we could say it about you. 35 years ago, you met — and you ability apperceive — you ability not apperceive what’s activity on.
What is activity on? Why did they adjournment so long? Why did Senator [Dianne] Feinstein adjournment until the hearings were over and accomplish this case? Why didn’t she accompany it appropriate at the beginning, aback you ask about, as an example, the FBI. Why didn’t they accompany this appropriate at the beginning? During the hearing? You would accept had all the time in the apple for the FBI. It would accept been fine.
Now, the FBI, as you know, did investigate this time, as they accept bristles or six added times. And they did a actual complete investigation. But this is a big con job. And I would adulation to be in the allowance with the Democrats, aing the door, you guys are all away, outside, waiting.

All of a sudden, the hearings are over. And the rumors alpha advancing out. And afresh you accept this added con artist, [Michael] Avenatti, appear out with addition adorableness today.

And whether it was a man or a woman, 30 years ago, 36 years ago — in fact, they don’t alike apperceive how abounding years ago, because cipher knows what the time is. That’s a continued time.

These were women that were quoted adage bad things about me. Not the affliction things about me.

And you apperceive what? The New York Times would not address that their adventure was fake. These women said abundant things. Not alone did they not say the bad stuff. They said abundant things about me. Advanced page. And those women — they’re absurd women. They went on television, and they didn’t appetite to. And I didn’t ask them. And they said the New York Times fabricated it up. They gave apocryphal quotes. And they went on a lot of shows. They were absolutely incensed, and they couldn’t accept it. That’s why bodies apperceive that a lot of the account is fake. And a lot of the bodies sitting actuality are fake. But 20 percent of them are wonderful.
REPORTER: If I could aloof absolutely ask that question, Mr. Trump. You didn’t let me ask my question.

But let me aloof explain. China now — put on $250 billion, and they’re advantageous 25% on that. They’re advantageous billions and billions — this has never happened to China. And I like China. And I like Admiral Xi [Jinping] a lot. I anticipate he’s a acquaintance of mine. He may not be a acquaintance anymore. But I anticipate he apparently respects — from what I hear, if you attending at Mr. Pillsbury, the arch ascendancy on China, he was on a acceptable show. I won’t acknowledgment the name of the appearance — recently.
And he was adage that China has complete account for Donald Trump and for Donald Trump’s very, actual ample brain. He said Donald Trump, they don’t apperceive what to do. Never happened. One affair they are aggravating to do is they’re aggravating to argue bodies to go adjoin Donald Trump. Because a normal, approved political actuality that has no abstraction of what the hell he’s accomplishing would let China abide to booty $500 billion a year out of our country, and clean their country. They were architecture 29 massive bridges, like the George Washington Bridge. They’re architecture things that we don’t body any more. But we’re starting to body them again.
And our abridgement now is hotter than it’s anytime been. I don’t apperceive if you saw the aplomb levels this morning that aloof came out. Fantastic.

But remember, he was arena with aught absorption money. He was arena with funny money. That’s easy. I’m arena with adequately big-ticket money.
So aback he does that, the bodies that account are bodies that absolutely in their accomplished life, they would save 10, 15, 20% of their salary, put it in the bank. Those bodies got killed, because they put their money in the bank, they were activity to alive off the interest, and there was no interest. Now those bodies are starting to get interest. And those are the people, frankly, that deserve to — you know, they did a abundant job. The bodies that did it right, the bodies that did the best job, got aching the most. So in one sense, I like it. But basically, I’m a low absorption bulk person. I abhorrence to acquaint you. Yes, go ahead.
REPORTER: Mr. President, you accept addition affair tomorrow with Rod Rosenstein.

You know, I alarm it a witch hunt. And it is a witch hunt. If you attending at the FBI statements with [Peter] Strzok and his lover, Lisa Page.

It’s terrible. We accept bent bodies accomplishing things that are terrible. I would abundant adopt befitting Rod Rosenstein. Abundant prefer. Abounding bodies say I accept the appropriate to absolutely blaze him. He said he did not say it. He said he does not accept that. And cipher in this allowance believes it.
By the way, I accord with the bodies in this room. I was with Mike Pompeo before. We were ambidextrous at a actual aerial akin with Japan. And I was adage things that cipher in the allowance alike understood. And I said them a continued time ago and I was right. He said, that’s not the 25th Amendment that I’m attractive at. I anticipate I can say that for Mike.
REPORTER: So you don’t anticipate anyone in your administering has anytime discussed application the 25th Amendment adjoin you.
TRUMP: I don’t anticipate so. Well, yeah, enemies, sure.
REPORTER: Within your administering or your Cabinet?
TRUMP: They’ll use annihilation they can! They’re not in adulation with me. They’re not activity to exhausted me in the election. They apperceive that. They’re not activity to exhausted me. The bodies that I’m attractive at are complete ablaze weights. I dream of active adjoin those people. Maybe they’ll appear up with somebody that’s not. They’re not activity to exhausted me. I’m adjoin what they appetite to I’m in favor of law enforcement. I’m in favor of assurance and aegis and low taxes. I appetite low taxes. I appetite borders. We’re accepting addition $1.6 billion in borders. I appetite borders. We’ve spent 3.2, and we’re accepting addition 1.6. And afresh eventually we’re accepting the accomplished affair and we’ll complete the wall.
They don’t appetite that. They don’t appetite that. They don’t appetite the things that I have. Now, I charge say. I apperceive abounding of the Democrats. They’ll say things and afresh flash at me. And, again, it’s the aforementioned old story. They’ll say things, they don’t beggarly it, it’s politics. The acumen they don’t appetite me is because they appetite to run the show. They appetite it. It’s power, it’s whatever you appetite to alarm it.
But what they accept done actuality is a disgrace. A complete disgrace. And what they do — I apperceive it’s interesting. In one case, they say, he’s a fascist, he’s demography over the government, he’s the best able admiral ever. He’s a abhorrent animal being. He wants to booty over the complete government and he’s activity to do it. We can’t stop him. That didn’t work. The aing week, he said, uh, he’s incompetent. I said, adjournment a minute, in one case I’m demography over the world. And in the added case, he’s they approved that for a week. That didn’t work. Look, these are actual backbiting
people. These are con artists. And the columnist knows it. But the columnist doesn’t address it. That’s a lot of hands. That’s a lot — Steve, go ahead. Here’s a actual high-quality person, this man. But he’ll apparently hit me with a bad one. Go ahead, accord it to me, Steve.
REPORTER: You’re accepting belletrist from Administrator Kim [Jong Un]. Why do you accusation a additional acme with the North Korean baton so and what do you — what would it be for?
TRUMP: Because I like him. So I accustomed two belletrist from Administrator Kim. At some point, I’ll, you know, accord these letters. They’re absurd letters. They’re — they’re belletrist that are arresting in the faculty of his activity for absent to get this done. I absolutely accept he wants to get it done. I may be wrong. I heard somebody on a assertive arrangement aftermost night, I won’t acknowledgment which one, say, why has admiral trump accustomed so abundant to North Korea? I said, adjournment a minute. I asked Sarah Huckabee, amuse alarm this person. I gave nothing, added than I met. What did I accord them? I didn’t do what Obama did, accord $1.8 billion in banknote to get aback four hostages. I got aback our hostages. I haven’t paid them anything. I haven’t paid them ten cents. But he wants to accomplish a accord and I would like to accomplish a deal. We absolutely accept a actual acceptable accord together. A lot altered than the aftermost time he was at the Affiliated Nations. That was a little bit rough.
Don’t forget, that time they said, oh, Trump is adage these abhorrent things. He’s activity to get us into a war. You are activity to accept a war if I wasn’t elected, you would be in a war. And Admiral Obama about said the aforementioned thing. He was accessible to go to war. You would accept had a war and you would accept absent millions, not thousands. You would accept absent millions of people. Seoul has 30 actor people, 40 afar and 30 afar from this actual alarming border. If I wasn’t elected, you would accept had a war. Admiral Obama anticipation you had a acceptable war. You apperceive how aing he was to acute the activate for war?
Millions of people. With me, cipher is talking about cipher is talking about that. We accept a actual acceptable relationship. He brand me, I like him. We get along. He wrote me two of the best admirable letters. Aback I showed one of the belletrist — aloof one — to prime abbot Abe, he said, this is absolutely a groundbreaking letter. This is an absurd — this is a celebrated letter. And it is a celebrated letter. It’s a admirable — it’s a admirable allotment of art. And I anticipate we’re activity to accomplish a deal.
Will we accomplish a deal, Steve? I don’t absolutely know. But I anticipate we’re activity to. In the meantime, and I accept said it — I don’t appetite to bore you. No rockets, no missiles, no nuclear tests. You know, for over a year. Area you haven’t seen. Afore I got here, everybody in this allowance anticipation you were activity to war. And afresh what happened, it was funny. They said, he was terrible! He was so asperous with Administrator Kim! Kim Jong-un. He was so rough! It’s terrible.
Well, I had a abundant affair with Admiral [Vladimir] Putin. And on that one, they said, he was too bendable with Admiral Putin. I had a abundant meeting. It lasted for two hours. We discussed everything. Ukraine, Syria, Israel and Israel’s protection. We had a abundant meeting. They capital me to end up in a battle match. And you apperceive what, if I was killer-tough with admiral Putin, they would accept said, he was too tough. You can’t win with these people, but you accumulate going. And in the concurrently we —
REPORTER: How continued do you anticipate it will booty North Korea —
TRUMP: Steve, I don’t appetite to get into the time game. You apperceive why? I told Mike Pompeo. I said, Mike, don’t get into the time game. We chock-full him. They’re demography bottomward plants, they’re demography bottomward a lot of altered testing areas. They’re activity to booty bottomward some more. You’ll be audition about that actual soon. I don’t appetite to go advanced of myself. But you’ll be audition about it soon. They accept no absorption appropriate now in testing nuclear.
You know, we had a case aloof about aback I was advancing into office, you’ll bethink it, area there was a massive — they anticipation it was an a abundance confused over an inch-and-a-half. We’re talking about mountains. North Korea is actual mountainous. Admirable land. Beautiful. This abundance absolutely shifted. It shifted. And somebody anticipation it was an and afresh they begin out, no, this was nuclear testing. Confused a mountain. I’m talking about austere stuff. Austere size.
When I came in and absolutely afore I came in, and alike at the alpha of my — because aback I was accepting articulate acquaintance — you know, contests earlier, I assumption you could alarm it, with administrator Kim, which we both smile at now and we beam at. But everybody anticipation that was a abhorrent thing. We’ve had abounding presidents who were clumsy to do anything. Annihilation at all. With North Korea. We now accept a acceptable relationship. We accept a acceptable relationship.
And best importantly, all of the things that you’ve been audition about, the abhorrence stories. In my opinion, they’re gone. Now, could they alpha up again? Yes. I’m a accord guy. Could they start? Yeah. Could be we don’t assignment it out. I anticipate — I accept it appropriate here. I anticipate that what we’ve done abaft the scenes, which cipher absolutely knows about, and I don’t accusation you for not alive about. Claimed letters, clandestine letters. But adage they appetite to get it done. We apperceive abundant added than the media for a change. Abundant more.
But if you saw what’s activity on abaft the scenes, I anticipate you would be actual impressed. We were a country activity to war. I absolutely accept that Admiral Obama would accept that he said it’s by far his bigger problem. Aback I sat with him above-mentioned to activity to office, activity into office, he said to me, that’s by far the bigger problem. And he said to me that he was actual aing to activity into war.
And millions of bodies — not — you know, they say, oh, bags of people. No, no, not thousands. Millions of bodies would accept been killed. And that could accept larboard — you’re appropriate aing to China. That could accept been a Apple War actual easily. Appropriate now we’re in a abundant position. I don’t appetite to comedy the time game. I told Mike Pompeo, don’t let them do that to you.
I haven’t accustomed anything. And all of a sudden, we got back, it was a few weeks ago. I anticipate we were aback like two-and-a-half months from the summit, which was a abundant success. And bodies are screaming, what’s demography so long? I said, oh, I get it. You’ve got to accept the media. I’ve been ambidextrous with the media all my life. Too much. Too much. They’re screaming, and I saw that. And our guys were — and not Mike, but our guys were being, oh, well, we’re alive this fast. I said, I’ve got all the time in the world. I don’t accept to blitz it. There’s no — you know, abeyance of sanctions. We’ve got the sanctions on. I didn’t booty any sanctions off.
I did see a anchorman aftermost night, a guy I like, personally, a lot. And he asked a catechism to Admiral Moon [Jae-in] of South Korea. He said, why did the admiral accord so much? I didn’t accord anything. I gave nothing. What accept I given? Added than some time. Yes, I flew to Singapore. We had a meeting.
Now, giving would be if I took the sanctions off. I didn’t appetite to do — if you ask Accepted [James] Mattis for a year-and-a-half, I said why don’t we stop these ridiculous, in my opinion, the military, I alarm them the aggressive games. If I told you how abundant those amateur cost, and frankly, I told South Korea, you should be advantageous for these games. We pay for them. They say, well, we fly the planes in from a abbreviate ambit away. I said, area is that? Guam. Oh, huh. How continued a cruise is that? Seven hours. Oh, great. We’re aerial these massive bombers. I’ve capital to stop this for a continued time. I accede that an asset.
But we accept done — we’re extenuative — by the way, aloof for the aborigine — we’re extenuative a fortune. And if we accusation them, we can alpha them up immediately. If I anticipate we accusation them, I’ll alpha them afore the generals will alpha them. The actuality is, this anchorman said that. I said, what accept we done? I haven’t accustomed anything. And we’re absolutely on to the cusp. I anticipate we’re absolutely activity to do article that’s activity to be actual important.
But we’re not arena the time game. If it takes two years, three years, or bristles months. Doesn’t matter. There’s no nuclear testing, and there’s no testing of rockets. Yes, ma’am, go ahead. Go ahead. Please. This is the one that was comatose with every nice affair I said. So watch this question.

But alike that, because China is a actual appropriate place.
Iran is a actual appropriate place, but I anticipate there’s been no country that’s afflicted so abundant as Iran. In the aftermost six months aback I took off the abhorrent Iran nuclear accord as they alleged it, one of the dumbest deals anytime fabricated — as an example, why didn’t they booty affliction of Yemen in the deal?

It said that they were actuality amidst and they were activity in and starting absolutely the aing day, they were activity to bead bombs all over the abode and conceivably annihilate millions of bodies in adjustment to get 35,000 terrorists.
I put out on amusing media and elsewhere, I gave Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, everybody these orders, don’t let it happen. I said, don’t let it happen. That doesn’t beggarly they can’t be selective, they can’t be — you know, go in. They’ve got to do what they’ve got to do with terrorists. I accept they’re terrorists, but don’t annihilate millions of people, and it stopped. You saw that. Cipher is activity to accord me credit, but that’s okay. That’s okay, because the bodies know. I accept had added Syrians acknowledge me for that. This was about four weeks ago I put that out.

And I meant it, too. I meant it. Millions of bodies accept been saved, and I gave today abundant acclaim to Iran — I don’t apperceive if you heard that.
