. 1 "I like, I like the idea of keeping the congress informed, but I do not have to do that."
Within the first 30 seconds of the interview, Trump says he does not need Congressional approval to launch a military action against Iran. And off you go!
. 2 "I like to keep them, they have ideas for intelligent people, they will think a little bit."
Donald Trump offers his thoughts to the congress. Really.
. 3 "Well, I think we may need military action, we'll see what happens."
. 4 "We had between 1
. 5 "So we'll see what happens, I hope it works, I think it will work out someday, they can do it very fast, they can last a long time, but they have a lot of problems."
] This detailed geopolitical analysis of the current state of Iran was presented to you by the President of the United States.
. 6 "Well, it was a very nice letter, and it was actually a happy birthday, if you want to know the truth, it was my birthday, and he sent me a nice letter, happy birthday, which was nice. "
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is not a dummy. He knows that the way to Trump's heart is through flattery and subservience. Hence a "nice" birthday card.
. 7 "He is, he does that, he does not have it, look, there's something else, he's a different person than four or five years ago, and he was not that hot four or five years ago." President of the United States, making vague references to the totally unproven idea that something is wrong with Joe Biden, the leader of the Democratic Presidential candidacy in 2020!
. 8 "But there's something going on in his brain."
And now Trump drops every subtlety in suggesting that Biden is wrong with him. If you do not believe me, read the next sentence by Trump below.
. 9 "I think he left, he's different, I mean, we've all known him for a long time, I do not know him, but I've seen him for a long time, and frankly he looks different, he sounds different, and he thinks differently . "
If you do not believe Trump suggests something is wrong with Biden, then give me a credible explanation of what the President means when he says he's absent and he thinks differently." Yes, I thought so.
10th "Apart from that, I hope he's fine."
So, apart from the fact that Biden has an undiagnosed problem with his brain, Trump wishes him well !
11. "I seek nothing in this debate."
NBC should use this later this week in their promotional materials for the Democratic debates. "I'm not looking for anything" – Donald Trump.
12 The Big Things I See Is The Biggest Tax Cut In History And this country. One of the great things is to get rid of the tax cut and increase the taxes of all. "
13." So many people are beginning to say that I'm right. "
Oh , right?
14. "Would I do that? Naturally. Do you have a recommendation? "
15. "I have already selected a good list 'I have a nice list of great, very talented people.'
16. "No, if we can get him, you know if we can approve it. They could not approve of him. "
This is Trump's answer to this question:" You would not see hypocrisy if you put forward a candidate in the run-up to the presidential election given what happened to Merrick Garland? "It is important to note that McConnell has refused to meet with Garland, and much less to hold confirmation hearings for him, so the idea that" they "could not approve him was never meaningfully tested. (Also, "If we can get Him." Just say.)
17. "I mean, we have the Senate. We have a great senate. We have great people. If we could approve it, I would definitely do it. No, I would do it much sooner. I would do it. "If there were three more days left, I'd hope someone could do it in three days, okay?"
In this quote, Trump completely exposes the supposed GOP defense because he Garland did not vote – because it was too close to a choice, as a outgoing president could select someone for a lifelong appointment. What Trump admits, intentionally or not, is that the only thing that counts here is whether or not you can confirm your SCOTUS selection there. The goals justify the means.
18th I mean, I disagree with him, I think a lot of people disagree, you may even disagree with him, but no, I would not agree with him with respect. "
The question? "The FBI director disagreed – he disagreed with the Attorney General on espionage, he said that your campaign was not spied on, what is your confidence in the FBI director right now?" Good rest of the day, Chris Wray!
19th "No, the conditions are much better than under President Obama, but because our economy is so good, you know we have the lowest unemployment rate in 51 years." happened: Trump is asked about the deplorable conditions for children in some prisons on the border. He quickly accuses former President Barack Obama of his blunted speech about the lowest unemployment rates for many minorities. Empathy, your name is not Donald Trump.
20th "I adopted Obama's policy, it was a separation policy, I'm the one who put it together."
21st "And, by the way, we've built a lot of walls, you see that. Did you like my tweet, the other one …"
"Did you like my tweet?" – The President of the United States
22. "I mean, you look at my Hispanic numbers, they were great and because the Hispanics understand the border better than anyone else."
23rd "Well, he's wrong, if I wanted, but I'm not kidding."
The Trump says that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, whom he (!) Has named, is wrong about Trump's ability to fire him. Of course Trump does not intend to fire Powell. But if he wanted to get rid of him, well …
24. "The Fed was awful for me and yet I got through and you know, it's one of those things."
25th "I know that my son loves football when you have the big stars like Ronaldo and some of those stars, and you know some of the Messi."
"Some of the Messi" is my favorite quote. Ever. From anyone.
26th "Well, I think much has to do with economics, I mean, who pulls more?"
27th "We have to go through the six years, or whatever it may be, if I want to take some of your compatriots with you, say, go through the six, 10, 14, maybe 18 years, whatever it takes . "
28th "Well, look, I have a lot of respect, even Mount Rushmore, so they had fireworks for many, many years, not many, many years."
The question? "Do you think you should be on Mount Rushmore, sir?"
29th "They ended it a long time ago, but they did not want it, but they did not have any fireworks, because, I do not know, I think they thought the stone would catch fire, it does not do it Nobody was able to figure out why, but it was a very strong no. "
30th "Bergdorf Goodman is a crowded store and I've never been on the floor I remember selling women's clothes on the floor Okay But Bergdorf Goodman is … and that's about 25 years ago, but." This shop is full.
This is a very interesting breakdown of Bergdorf's.
31. "I will say it with great respect, Number One, she is not my type."
32 "I think it's a crazy thing for people to do to make such false allegations. I really do. "
33." If a reporter is faked, there are a lot of them, fake; some of them are in many cases not even called to confirm anything. "
34." She becomes governor. She becomes governor. She will not talk to us anymore. It's going to be too high. "
Donald Trump talks about his outgoing spokeswoman Sarah Sanders, and that too is super normal!
35" If she ran for the governor, she would have my approval, yes, she would mean mine Have approval. I mean, I do not know she will run, but I think she should. She'll probably, but I think she should, I mean, she's very popular. "
Follow this logic: If Sanders is running for the governor, Trump will support her → she could not run → she will probably run → she should run → she is very popular … Got it?
36. "Anyway, have a good time, guys."
This is an amazing way to end an interview or an encounter, and if I leave work today, I'll go to The Point Posse and say : "Whatever, have a good time, people." And, oh yeah, that feels like a good ending.
