3:41 pm
i won't even mention north korea in that. great -- we have a good chemistry together. jong in, we have a great chairman ken, we have a great chemistry. we are well on our way. we signed an agreement that said we will begin the immediate denuclearization. ok. we already got back the hostages and i thought, obama got back hostages. he paid to get them back. they did not say that. they said but obama got them differently,ittle in green. in cash. how do you do that as president?
3:42 pm
when i was campaigning, people become to me with tears in their eyes and say would it be possible to get back the remains membersather, of family that died in the korean war. exactly have a great relationship over there. >> [laughter] >> this was the before the election. i said, i will tell you what, i will try. as we negotiated different points in singapore, i asked german can if it would be possible to do that. it was the last thing i asked. -- i said do mind you mind, would i be able to get the remains back from so many years ago and he said i will do that and you probably read, they have already done 200 people.
3:43 pm
thank you. [applause] >> thank you, that is so nice. call fromtly i got a the prime minister of japan. is so thankful, there are no rockets flying over japan. they were flying right over japan. they were not so happy. the japanese are great warriors. that was not a good thing and they are so happy that they were
3:44 pm
having rockets and testing rockets, they have not had a rocket for tests in seven months, a longtime now, used to be every week would have another nuclear test rocket test. they blown up their nuclear site, they have gotten rid of the process of getting rid of the engine site for ballistic missiles. a special kindng of a situation where hopefully in the future -- because, you look at it from many standpoint, north korea has tremendous potential. chairman kim sees that and a lot a tremendous things are going to happen. we were really helped by south korea. we were tremendously helped by japan. we were really helped by china. now we have to work on our trade because it has been very tough on our country.
3:45 pm
our presidents did nothing about it and we probably lost $500 billion in trade to china. think of it. we have started a process and i think that will work out because we have a very good relationship. i think it will work out. we are working on a nafta deal and nafta has been a disaster. mexico makes over $100 billion per year. you see these numbers. $100 billion. nottrillion, not million, it, $100 but think of billion per year on trade in mexico. of that tax of 17%. a lot of car companies went very and they sent them back over the border and virtually no tax and we lost a tremendous amount.
3:46 pm
now they make a big percentage of our cars. it is not fair so we are renegotiating nafta and i think when it's finished, it will be a fair deal, it has got to be fair, we can't do this. canada charges us 275% arab on dairy products. tariff on dairy products. you probably read the prime minister is a nice guy but we can't have it. percent, we can't have it because that is a barrier. they tell the farmers up in wisconsin and all of the different places we don't want your product. 275 is like having a. of which they do you have working on we are canada, mexico, the european union.
3:47 pm
we are working on china. everybody now is coming back. on, u.s.eel tariffs steel is building six plants or expanding. a steel company today announced a $500 million plan and that is the first plant built in many years. that is a long time. the steel industry started and we need steel in this country. we need steel including for national defense. we have to have steel. a lot of things are happening. trade stuff is coming along, just starting, but it will because we are the piggy bank that everybody likes to rob from, and unfortunately and we have great allies, great friends, we protect them for a very small cost. we protect them for a tiny fraction of what it would cost, which is unfair but we want get into that.
3:48 pm

3:51 pm
low coming through. we want people to come in through merit. we want a merit-based system so they can help us. numbers ofmendous companies. we have a 3.8 unemployment number which nobody thought was possible. we have a 3.8 -- we need people to come in but they have to be people that love this country and can really help us to make america great again, which is what we are doing. since election day, we have created -- this is hard to believe because nobody -- the -- if i would've said this during the campaign, have created 3.4 million new jobs since election day.
3:52 pm
have said that during the campaign prior to the election, they would have said you have to be kidding. unemployed claims are at a 44 year low. unemployment for african americans is the lowest level in history. remember i used to say, what do you have to lose? -- african went americans voted for democrats. tremendous crime, bad education, bad this, bad that. i am reading 10 different points . income levels, homeownership, everything, and i said, vote for me. what do you have to lose?
3:53 pm
we did very well. those numbers went up. up enough so we won the election. americanhe african unemployment lowest in the history of the country. hispanic -- any hispanics in the audience? hispanic unemployment the lowest in the history of the country. unemployment, the lowest in 21 years and shortly it will be the lowest in history. the lowest in 21 years. that is down to 3.6%. nobody would believe the numbers. over 3 million people recently got off food stamps because we are doing so well. that's a big number. after years of stagnation and makingown, people were
3:54 pm
more money relatively speaking 20 years ago than they were making two years ago and after years of stagnation, wages are rising again. jobs are looking for people. small business optimism has reached an all-time high. the highest it has ever been recorded. we have signed the biggest tax cut and reform in the history of our country. dean and -- i will tell you, dean really helped. he was fighting hard. you are fighting hard. that was not easy. opponent tell you, his wants to raise taxes. she wants to raise taxes. think of it. it is ridiculous. should we mention her name or not? >> [shouting]
3:55 pm
>> i have a great nickname for her but i will not say it. [shouting] >> we should not do it. jackie. >> [applause] you don't want her as your senator. you don't want her as your senator. that name did not come from me. that is a name that people have known because people that know her caller wacky jackie. she wants to raise taxes and i think somebody said she is in nevada now campaigning with pocahontas.
3:56 pm
she is campaigning with elizabeth warren. they wanted me to apologize. >> no. apologize to pocahontas. jackie is campaigning with pocahontas. do you believe this? in your state. they don't know how to say nevada. they don't how to say it. she called it nevada. that, that is not the senator you want. your senator has to deal with your president and her president loves the state but i am not increasing taxes.
3:57 pm
you have a democratic party, really a democrat -- i don't like the word democratic because it is not a democratic. you notice however one cause of the democratic. it is not democratic, it is called the democrat party. it does not flow as easily. it sounds nicer, the democratic party but we are talking about people that want tax increases. they want open borders. they have to have open borders. they want people coming in. we take them out of this country by the thousands. they are flowing. we take them out by the thousands and we have the toughest border you can have considering the laws are the worst in the country. our immigration laws are a laughingstock. we are only people people walk in and put a foot in. please, would you like to register? other countries say get out of
3:58 pm
here. they have to do that. we say they want to hire now 5000 more judges so that a person puts their toe on the land and we have to go to trial. this is crazy what we are doing. i don't want charges, i want border patrol, i want ice. we do not want judges. the problem is that i have said it, we have great people in the house, republicans. we get the tax bill. we get one vote from democrats, the terms of the senate and in terms of the house, they get a vote and we cut taxes massively and these companies that are all moving back now, chrysler is coming back, so many companies are coming back, that's why we need jobs that we need jobs because we have all the companies. we have so much happening they are coming to ohio, they are coming to pennsylvania, all over. it is incredible to see what is
3:59 pm
going on. it in the right way. we have to have strong borders. -- fornot ever allow instance, if i got appeared today and said, we want everybody to come, we want to take care of everybody -- >> no. >> that me tell you what would happen if i said that. they will put it on where they won't do and trump said we want everybody to come. these are the most dishonest people. they are among the most dishonest people on earth. but if we did that, everybody you -- if we did that, would have -- you are right. the word is overrun. we would have millions pouring through our country. with all of the problems that would cause. with crime and schools. all i havellions -- to do is say yes, got to take care of everybody, do what you
4:00 pm
want to do. if they see any weakness, they will, by the millions. we are going to have the wall, we are going to have the wall. we are ready started. -- we already started. that wall. build that wall. tosident trump: we are going have that wall. $1.6 billion, we started it, we are fixing it. we will build it for a lot less money than these people think, a lot less money. but we are getting the wall are going now for our second portion. it is brutal dealing with the democrats. they want to do nothing. -- political people sometimes you probably go home and say, why do i like it?
4:01 pm
, we are think about it dealing with a group of people who don't want to improve anything. if i said as an example, we gave them everything they wanted they would say don't approve it. because they think immigration is being weak on the border, which is therefore allowing tremendous crime to come into our country. they think that is a good issue for them. on theathetically weak border -- i don't think it's a good issue. i may be wrong, i may have gotten elected because we are strong on the border. [applause] so we sign amp: tax bill, and the cut was great. but we also have one of the great sites in the world for energy.
4:02 pm
got rid of the obamacare disastrous individual mandate, where you pay a fortune for the privilege of not paying health insurance. this is one of the great disasters, the individual mandate gone. has anybody realized that? where you pay a lot of money for the privilege of not paying. and you get no health care. and we just opened with our great labor secretary, department of labor, cooperative and association health care. it's going to be low cost, much better than obamacare. in anotherdoing more two weeks, different forms of health care. up.acare is going every time you see it increased that is obamacare. obamacare is on its last legs. it was done. repeal and replace obamacare, it
4:03 pm
was done until early in the morning a man walked in and he said thumbs down. .hat was not good and nobody knew he was going to do that. he campaigned on repeal and replace. years repeal for and replace. nobody talked to him. nobody needed to, it was a done deal. he walked in, thumbs down. gutted it anyway. if you see your numbers go up, for those that are remaining, it's the democrats fault. immigration, that's the democrats fault. we won't get one vote. if we gave them every single thing they want they will say we don't want it. it is.
4:04 pm
remember their word, resist. resistance their word. remember what our word is? lots of different words. ours is approved, get it done. their word is resist. to resist everything. they think that's going to help them get into office. i don't think so, especially when it comes to raising taxes, when it comes to having weak borders and crime. and i have horrible health care. we got rid of the individual mandate. obamacare, it is almost now a thing of the past. happened a few months ago, but we got a little surprise. one of the biggest things we have done is a record number of
