President Trump and Chancellor Merkel of Germany at G-20

Buenos Aires, Argentina...Well, thank you very much everybody. It’s a great honor to be with Chancellor Merkel, who is my friend. We have a great relationship and a great working relationship, I think very important. And we are talking trade. We’re talking defense. We’re talking about many things. We have a tremendous trade imbalance, but we’re going to get that straightened out. It’ll be better and better, I think, as time goes by. Our military relationship is very good. I think we all understand each other.





And it’s an honor to be with the Chancellor. She’s done an incredible job. Highly respected by everybody, including me. So I just want to say it’s a great honor, Angela. Thank you very much.

CHANCELLOR MERKEL: You’re welcome.

(As interpreted.) Well, let me say I’m very glad we have the opportunity for this bilateral meeting. We shall address issues related to trade, multilateral issues, and also fair trade and the World Trade Organization. We will also talk about bilateral relations, Ukraine, Syria, and the violations of the INF treaty by Russia.

So there’s quite a lot to do, quite a lot on our plate for this relatively short time.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Good. Thank you very much. Thank you very much everybody. Thank you.

Q Mr. President, have you spoken to President George W. Bush?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Yes, I have. And Jeb also. And I expressed deepest sympathies. Angela and I were just talking about it. He was a wonderful man. And you may want to just explain your little meeting with him. I found it very interesting.

CHANCELLOR MERKEL: Yes. I was in (inaudible), in the White House, visiting George Bush. And he’s the father, or one of the fathers, of the German unification, and we will never forget that.

THE PRESIDENT: I found that very interesting.

So we extended our best wishes. And he was — he was a very fine man. I met him on numerous occasions. He was just a high-quality man who truly loved his family. One thing that came through loud and clear, he was very proud of his family and very much loved his family. So he was a terrific guy and he’ll be missed. And he led a full life, and a very exemplary life too, I will say.

And we’ve decided — as you know, we were going to have a big press conference today, which I actually looked forward to because we’ve made tremendous progress at the G20 with many nations. And we were going to have a very big press conference, and out of respect for President Bush, we’ve cancelled it here and we’ll have it back in Washington at some time in the near future. Sometime after the funeral service. Okay?

Q Do you regret any of your comments about Bush or his family in the past?

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much, everybody. Thank you.

Q Mr. President, are you still planning to meet with President Xi today?

THE PRESIDENT: We will be meeting with President Xi tonight. I will be, and my group — small group. And he will have a small group of representatives and we’ll be talking about a thing called trade, and probably other things also. But primarily trade.

And it’s a very important meeting. But again, the fact that we lost a President who truly was a wonderful person, a wonderful man, a great man, it really puts a damper on it, to be honest with you.

So we’re going to have the meeting tonight, and then I’ll be going back to Washington. And we can all meet sometime during the week or shortly thereafter.

Thank you all very much. Thank you.

          HAHAHAHA LYING CROOKED RINO MUELLER HAHAHAHA
          Mueller Connected To Manafort, Podesta Brothers And Russian Front Group In The Ukraine… But No Recusal?

          The leader of the corrupt and criminal Special Counsel in Washington, Robert Mueller, is connected to Paul Manafort whom he is prosecuting.
          He is also connected to Manafort’s business partners in the Ukraine – the Podesta Brothers – who are connected to Hillary Clinton – and a Russian ‘foundation’ in the Ukraine labeled the Party of Regions.
          But, for some reason, only Manafort sits in solitary confinement?
          The Washington Examiner reported in July 2018 that –
          Tony Podesta, founder of the now-shuttered Podesta Group and brother to former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, has been offered immunity by special counsel Robert Mueller to testify against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, according to a report.
          Fox News’ Tucker Carlson announced on his show Thursday evening that two separate sources confirmed the offer.
          “In other words, for a near identical crime, Bill and Hillary’s friend could escape and emerge completely unscathed while Paul Manafort may rot in jail. Only one of them made the mistake of chairing Donald Trump’s presidential campaign,” Carlson said.
          The Examiner continued –
          Manafort and Podesta’s firms worked together in a public relations campaign for the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine nonprofit, which was believed to be backed by the pro-Russian and oligarch-funded Ukrainian political group Party of Regions. Sources who spoke with NBC News in October said the Podesta Group became of significant interest because it may have violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act. FARA states Americans who lobby for foreign governments, leaders, or political parties must disclose their activities with the Justice Department.
          However, someone tipped off the creepy Podesta brothers, because just before the Mueller arrested Manafort, the Podesta Group filed a number of forms retroactively.
          Manafort was not so lucky, as he was arrested and charged by Mueller for not filing the exact same forms.
          In May of 2018, Judicial Watch released new documents from the U.S. Department of State showing the Podesta Group worked on behalf of the pro-Russia Ukrainian political group “Party of Regions.” The documents also showed longtime Obama and Clinton counselor John Podesta lobbied on behalf of his brother’s firm.
          But creepy John Podesta held a ‘get out of jail free’ card because he was Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager. To date the Podesta’s, even though they worked with Manafort in the Ukraine, have received no indictments or arrests and have remained relatively out of sight and probably are on an extended vacation.

    He has o.c.d, an addiction to soda pop, eats ketchup with everything including a good steak so flapping his hands about and fiddling isn't much a suprise. The guys a freaking lunatic.
