He emphasized the Republican Senate victories and urged US President Donald Trump on a bilateral bipartisan deal on Wednesday at the White House in Washington, at the first press conference following the previous mid-term election.
The Republican Partyman Trump tried to lower his party’s parliamentary losses, stressing that the Republican Party had been in the most difficult position for decades, as many have now withdrawn from politics. He also pointed out that the victory of the Democrats Democrats was helped by the great donors and – as he said – some “special interest groups”. The mid-term elections in 2018 were a “historic challenge”, he said. On the results of the election, Donald Trump reiterated his opinion on the morning’s Twitter entry: those Republicans who did not accept the politics he poses. He noted: voters “clearly condemned” those Democratic senators who were against the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh, a magistrate.
He was deeply grateful for the expected President of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, a Democratic Party politician, praising the work of the California politician so far. The press conference later – responding to journalistic questions – praised Pelosi’s talent.
The chairman stressed: he agrees with Nancy Pelosi, who urged cooperation and unity Tuesday evening. The president said that “wonderful opportunities” will be opened for bipartisan cooperation. For example, you mentioned the health insurance law or the agreement on limiting medicines. The bipartisan agreement on infrastructure investments is also important.
Trump stressed that the two sides must cooperate in securing the security of borders, advocating the construction of a wall planned for the US-Mexican border, and even urged to cooperate on environmental issues, unlike its earlier position. “Environmental protection is of the utmost importance to me,” he said.
Answering this question, Trump reiterated that there was no collusion with the Russians during the 2016 US presidential election. He said that he would have been able to disband at any time the special committee led by Robert Mueller, who was involved in the collusion between co-workers of the campaign team and the Russians, but did not.
Responding to another journalist, he stressed that he now has no intention of dismantling the committee, carrying out his work, but he would like to miss it. “It is a shame and embarrassment for this country,” he said, and reiterated his earlier view that the Mueller committee’s activities are also influenced by conflicts of interest.
He did not want to give specific answers to questions about the government’s transformation, but also resolved the questions that led to the departure of Jeff Sessions, Minister of Justice and Cabinet Chief John Kelly. “I am very happy with the current government,” he said, but added that this work is very exhaustive, so it is understandable if one leaves. There will be changes, he said, as “nothing is in stone”.
At the unusually long – over two-hour – press conference, Donald Trump sometimes talked with the press, sometimes courting the journalists. Speaking about CNN’s news broadcast, he repeated that whoever “reports” is “the enemy of the people”. CNN employee Jim Acosta said, “You’re a rough, horrible figure and you should not work at CNN.” He also interrupted the reporter who wanted to ask whether he was counting on Robert Mueller’s criminal proceedings against him.
Later, he told the journalists with a smile: they would stay as long as they wanted to, but talk to him if they were already hungry. Some reporters have “rewarded” Trump.
The chairman rejected the question of the reporter of public television (PBS), which he referred to as being a nationalist in the election campaign, which many people identified with the supremacy of white supremacy. Does this mean that the president supports white nationalists? asked the Afroamerican reporter of PBS. Trump queried the question as a racist.
In response to questions from journalists, the president went to North Korea. He said he was “not in a hurry” with the agreement with Phanj, and is inclined to abolish sanctions, but he is still waiting for North Korean responses. Earlier this year, he predicted a new meeting with Kim Jong Un, a North Korean leader.
