Trump unleashes on ‘The Squad’ in impassioned media comments


>>IF YOU GO BACK TO THE FOUR CONGRESS WOMEN, THE THINGS THAT THEY HAVE SAID ABOUT OUR COUNTRY ARE TERRIBLE. WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT ISRAEL ARE JUST TERRIBLE. I DON’T KNOW. I CAN’T SAY FOR SURE BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY THEY HATE OUR COUNTRY. IT’S A DISGRACE WHAT THEY SAID. YOU CAN’T TALK THAT WAY ABOUT THE UNITED STATES AND I THINK FRANKLY TO SAY THAT ABOUT ISRAEL. WE JUST GAVE THE EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM, MAKING JERUSALEM THE CAPITOL OF ISRAEL. I JUST GAVE GOLAN HEIGHTS, RECOGNIZED GOLAN HEIGHTS. I DID ALL OF THIS FOR ISRAEL. AND OMAR — I FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE BUT OMAR PUT IN SANCTIONS BILL AGAINST ISRAEL AND OTHER THINGS BEYOND SANCTIONS. SO WHEN I HEAR THAT, YOU JUST CAN’T TALK ABOUT OUR COUNTRY THAT WAY. WHEN PEOPLE ARE ANGRY AT THEM, I FULLY UNDERSTAND IT.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S GOOD OR BAD POLITICALLY. I DON’T CARE. WHEN PEOPLE SPEAK SO BADLY, WHEN THEY CALL OUR COUNTRY GARBAGE, THINK OF THAT. THAT’S WORSE THAN DEPLORABLE. WHEN THEY CALL OUR COUNTRY GARBAGE, I DON’T CARE ABOUT POLITICS. I DON’T CARE IF IT’S GOOD OR BAD. MANY PEOPLE SAY IT’S GOOD. I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S GOOD OR BAD. I CAN TELL YOU THIS. YOU CAN’T TALK THAT WAY ABOUT OUR COUNTRY, NOT WHEN I’M THE PRESIDENT. SO I THINK THEY SAID HORRIBLE THINGS. THEY’RE ANTI-SEMITIC. YOU LOOK AT THE KIND OF STATEMENTS THAT THEY MADE ABOUT ISRAEL, IT’S A DISGRACE.>>THEY HAVE FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS TO SAY WHAT THEY WANT ABOUT OUR COUNTRY. THAT’S WHAT THE CONSTITUTION GUARANTEES. DO YOU SEE NOT AGREEING WITH YOU AS THE SAME THING AS HATING THE COUNTRY, SIR?>>YEAH, THAT I HAVE FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS. THAT DOESN’T MEAN I’M HAPPY ABOUT THEM SAYING — WHEN THEY SAD BAD THINGS ABOUT US, WE CAN CERTAINLY FEEL — AGAIN, WE HAVE FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS ALSO. WE CAN CERTAINLY FEEL AND SAY WHAT WE WANT.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>WE’RE GOING TO BE SPEAKING WITH THE U.K. THIS IS ONLY GOING TO SHOW WHAT I’M SAYING ABOUT IRAN. TROUBLE. NOTHING BUT TROUBLE. REMEMBER THIS, THE AGREEMENT, THE RIDICULOUS AGREEMENT MADE BY PRESIDENT OBAMA EXPIRES IN A SHORT TIME. IT WAS A SHORT-TERM AGREEMENT. WHEN YOU DEAL WITH COUNTRIES, YOU HAVE TO DEAL IN 50 YEARS AND 100 YEARS. NOT THE SHORT TERM. THAT WAS A RIDICULOUS AGREEMENT. IT GOES TO SHOW YOU I WAS RIGHT ABOUT IRAN. LET’S SEE WHAT HAPPENS. IT’S NOT AMERICAN SHIPS. IT’S U.K. COULD BE ONE, COULD BE TWO. WE’LL BE SPEAKING TO THEM. THEY HAVE A NEW PRIME MINISTER COMING SOON. THAT’S A GOOD THING FOR THE U.K.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>IN THE PAST YOU SAID THAT AMERICA IS THE LAUGHINGSTOCK OF THE WORLD. WHY IS IT OKAY FOR YOU TO CRITICIZE AMERICA BUT NOT –>>I BELIEVE PEOPLE ARE GREAT PEOPLE. I BELIEVE EVERYBODY IS GREAT. I LOVE OUR COUNTRY. I’M REPRESENTING OUR COUNTRY. PEOPLE CAN’T GO AROUND SPEAKING ABOUT OUR GARBAGE. THIS IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. WE HAVE THE STRONGEST MILITARY BY FAR. WE HAD A DEPLETED MILITARY. WE SPENT $700 BILLION LAST YEAR AND 700 THE YEAR BEFORE. WE HAVE A GREAT POWERFUL MILITARY. WE HAVE THE GREATEST ECONOMY ON EARTH, NOT EVEN CLOSE. YOU CAN’T SPEAK ABOUT OUR COUNTRY THE WAY THOSE FOUR CONGRESSMEN, THEY SAID GARBAGE. THEY SAY THINGS ABOUT ISRAEL THAT IS SO BAD. I’M NOT GOING TO REPEAT IT. THEY CAN’T GET AWAY WITH THAT ACT.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>THESE WOMEN HAVE SAID HORRIBLE THINGS ABOUT OUR COUNTRY AND THE PEOPLE OF OUR COUNTRY. NOBODY SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO THAT. IF THEY WANT TO DO THAT, THAT’S UP TO THEM. I CAN’T IMAGINE THEY’RE GOING TO DO VERY WELL AT THE POLLS. I SAY THIS: IF THE DEMOCRATS WANT TO EMBRACE PEOPLE THAT HATE OUR COUNTRY, SO FAR LEFT THAT NOBODY HAS EVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT, IF THEY WANT TO EMBRACE PEOPLE THAT ARE SO ANTI-SEMITIC AND ANTI-ISRAEL, THEY WANT TO DO THAT, THAT’S UP TO THEM. BUT I DON’T HAVE TO DO THAT. I THINK WHAT THEY SAY AND WHAT THEY HAVE SAID IS A DISGRACE TO THEM, TO THE DEMOCRATS AND FRANKLY TO OUR COUNTRY.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>A LONG TIME AGO, YEAH. I HAD A FALLING OUT. I DIDN’T GET ALONG WITH HIM.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>I DON’T REALLY KNOW. I’D HAVE TO LOOK INTO IT. IT’S A LONG TIME AGO.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>I DO THINK WE HAVE BIGGER PROBLEMS THAN PLASTIC STRAWS. IT’S INTERESTING ABOUT PLASTIC STRAWS. YOU HAVE A LITTLE STRAW. WHAT ABOUT THE PLATES, THE WRAPPERS AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT ARE MUCH BIGGER AND MADE OF THE SAME MATERIAL? SO THE STRAWS ARE INTERESTING. EVERYBODY FOCUSES ON THE STRAWS. A LOT OF OTHER THINGS TO FOCUS ON. IT’S AN INTERESTING THING. TALK UP.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>SO SECRETARY MNUCHIN DID HAVE A CALL WITH THE CHINESE COUNTER PARTS. HAD A VERY GOOD TALK. WE’RE DEALING WITH CHINA, DOING VERY WELL, NOT DOING WELL. THEY HAD THE WORST YEAR IF 27 YEARS. WE’RE DOING WELL. LET’S SEE WHAT HAPPENS. OUR FARMERS ARE DOING WELL. I’VE TAKEN SOME OF THE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF TARIFFS THAT WE COLLECT FROM CHINA, WE COLLECT BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF FEES AND TARIFFS. I GAVE IT TO OUR FARMERS.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>FALSE INFORMATION. FAKE NEWS. I TALK ABOUT IT BUT THEY DIDN’T ADVISE ME. THEY TOLD ME BUT IT’S FAKE. WHAT YOU’RE SAYING, FAKE NEWS.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>RAND IS A FRIEND OF MINE. I HAVE 53 VERY GOOD FRIENDS. THEY’RE IN THE SENATE. I ALSO HAVE A LOT OF FRIENDS. YOU SAW THAT THE OTHER DAY WHEN THEY BROUGHT A RIDICULOUS VOTE UP AND ONLY FOUR REPUBLICANS OUT OF HUNDREDS VOTED AGAINST. SO I HAVE A LOT OF GREAT FRIENDS. I’M 94% IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. RAND IS A FRIEND OF MINE. RAND ASKED ME IF HE COULD GET INVOLVED. THE ANSWER IS QUESTION. OTHER SENATORS ASKED ME TO GET INVOLVED, I’D SAY YES DEPENDING WHO THEY WERE. WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. I HAVE MANY PEOPLE INVOLVED. IRAN IS GOING TO WORK OUT VERY NICELY. IRAN IS SHOWING THEIR COLORS. GOING TO WORK OUT NICELY. IRAN IS IN BIG TROUBLE RIGHT NOW. THEIR ECONOMY IS CRASHING. IT’S COMING TO A CRASH. THEY’RE TRYING TO BRING SOLDIERS BACK HOME BECAUSE THEY CAN’T PAY THEM. BAD THINGS ARE HAPPENING TO THEM. IT’S EASY TO STRAIGHTEN OUT OR VERY EASY FOR US TO MAKE IT WORSE.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>YOU KNOW WHAT IS RACEST TO ME? WHEN SOMEBODY SAYS THE HORRIBLE THINGS ABOUT OUR COUNTRY, THE PEOPLE OF OUR COUNTRY, ANTI-SEMITIC, THAT HATE EVERYBODY, THAT SPEAK WITH SCORN AND HATE, THAT IS REALLY A VERY DANGEROUS THING. I THINK THESE FOUR CONGRESS WOMEN, I COULD SAY SOME WORSE THAN OTHERS, BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE STATEMENTS THAT THEY HAVE MADE, WHAT THEY CALL THE PEOPLE OF OUR COUNTRY AND OUR COUNTRY GARBAGE, WHEN THEY HIT ISRAEL THE WAY THEY HAVE HIT ISRAEL SO HARD, SO HORRIBLE, I THINK TO ME THAT IS A DISS GRACE. WE SHOULD NEVER FORGET IT. WE’RE DEALING WITH PEOPLE THAT HATE OUR COUNTRY.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>NO, I DON’T. LET ME TELL YOU, THEY HAD AN IMPEACHMENT VOTE THE OTHER DAY. A BIG WASTE OF TIME. IT’S A DISGRACE. NO OTHER PRESIDENT SHOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH IT. THE VOTE WAS A TOTALLY LOPSIDED VOTE WITH MANY DEMOCRATS VOTING IN FAVOR. AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED, THEY ALREADY TOOK THEIR IMPEACHMENT VOTE AND THE IMPEACHMENT VOTE WAS SO LOPSIDED, IT WAS A MASSIVE VICTORY. YOU KNOW WHAT? AT SOME POINT THEY HAVE TO STOP PLAYING GAMES. THEY’RE JUST PLAYING GAMES. YOU KNOW, I WON’T BE WATCHING MUELLER.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>WE’RE LOOKING AT ZIMBABWE RIGHT NOW.>>[QUESTION INAUDIBLE]>>THE FIRST LADY FEELS VERY STRONGLY ABOUT OUR COUNTRY. SHE THINKS IT’S HORRIBLE WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT ISRAEL AND HORRIBLE WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT OUR COUNTRY, THESE CONGRESS WOMEN. THEY CANNOT CALL OUR COUNTRY AND OUR PEOPLE GARBAGE.
