President Trump Participates in a Roundtable Discussion on Protecting American Workers

President Trump Participates in a Roundtable Discussion on Protecting American Workers


The President: Thank you. It’s a great honor
to be here with you. And I love this state. We came this close
from winning this. (Laughter) One more speech —
oh, one more speech. (Applause) But we’re winning
Minnesota next time, I have no doubt about it. We’ve done a lot for Minnesota. (Applause) And they are very
special people. I want to thank Kevin McCarthy,
our Leader, for joining us. You’ve done
a fantastic job, Kevin. Thank you. (Applause) As well as Congressman
Tom Emmer. (Applause) Tom, thank you. And Jason Lewis, who have
really done a great job. (Applause) Thank you, Jason. We’ve kept you a little busy,
I think, but you’ve done great. Jason, Tom, thank you very much. And, Kevin, always. Thanks also to Deputy Secretary
David Bernhardt, St. Louis County Commissioners Keith Nelson and Pete Stauber. Where’s Pete? Where is he? (Applause) And we’re going to have
a very exciting time in about 45 minutes. I hear there’s a big crowd — a lot of people
being turned away. We can’t do that. We’ll put up a screen outside
or something, fellas. (Laughter) I want to also thank Mayor
Robert Vlaisavljevich. This is a great group
of names they gave me. (Laughter) And by the way,
you were so fantastic. You were given a quote today
in the New York Times about helping
this incredible state. I appreciate it, Robert. And Andrea Zupancich
and Ray Klosowski — (laughter) — and President of the
Duluth Seaway Port Authority. And Kelsey Johnson. Oh, Kelsey. (Laughter and applause) Kelsey. Kelsey Johnson. Oh, I love that name — Johnson. (Laughter) But seriously, you guys really
gave me some beautiful stuff and we appreciate it very much. We appreciate what you said. Also, President of the Iron
Mining Association of Minnesota. And, Kelsey, iron mining
is really booming now, with what we’ve done. And it’s so important
and I appreciate your support. You said some wonderful things. And we’re making
a big difference, right? Ms. Johnson: Yes, we are
thank you. The President: It’s a hot —
hot place. Ms. Johnson: Yes, sir. The President: And it wasn’t
so hot about two or three years ago. (Laughter) Ms. Johnson: It wasn’t so hot,
you’re right. The President: In fact,
we can be exact. About 16 months ago,
it wasn’t doing so well. (Laughter) We’re joined by wonderful union
members and workers at the great American steel
and iron mining companies: Adam Morse, Dean Carlson,
and Mike Tichy. And also, we have
Craig Jussila. Where’s Craig? I love that name. That’s not bad, right? Jussila. That’s pretty good. Good, that’s about the easiest
one they gave me today. (Laughter) Today, we’ll hear from citizens
who are thriving as a result of our efforts
to put American workers first. We’re putting America
first again, folks. You know, we’re respected
again, as a country. Okay? (Applause) We have the worst trade deals
in the history of the world. We gave away our country, but we’re taking it
back for our workers, for our companies, for our jobs,
for our money, for our taxes. It’s incredible. And you know, we have
a lot of friends. But our friends,
in many respects, Kevin, treated us worse on trade
than the enemies. And we are doing
a lot of things about it. We’re renegotiating trade
deals left and right, and they’re all coming back. You know, we have, I want
to say, right on our side. We also have the fact that
we have been taken advantage of for many, many years,
and it’s not happening anymore. Not happening anymore
and you see it. And you see it going on. And it’s not happening anymore. (Applause) Our economy is booming. We’ve created more than 3.4
million jobs since the election. If I would have said
that during the election, those people back
there — fake news — (laughter) — I would have — they would
have said there’s no way. Look, he exaggerates. I would have said 3 — I wouldn’t have said 3.5. I would have said 2. I would have said
1 million jobs. We created 3.4 million jobs
since the election. And I will tell you,
if the Democrats got in, instead of having
an almost 40 percent increase in stock markets and all of the things
that you see every day — and that’s despite
a little disruption on trade because people
don’t understand it. The reporters
don’t understand it. A lot of the stock markets
don’t understand it. But we are way up in every way. And if I wanted
to be nice and easy, just let them continue
to take advantage of us. But ultimately,
we’d be paying the price. It was time to do
something about it. So, the trade is going
to be fantastic and we’re going to end up
with really great trade deals. And fair trade deals,
I don’t even mean great. I’m not looking — great. I’m looking for
fair trade deals. They are so far out of balance
and out of whack. And they’re going to be changed. So, 3.4 million jobs
since the election. Unemployment claims are at
the lowest level in 44 years. (Applause) And African American
unemployment and Hispanic unemployment
are at the lowest level in recorded history — in the history of the country,
the lowest level. And women unemployment,
lowest in 21 years. And if we keep going,
within about a month or so, it’ll be the lowest,
also, in history. Wages are rising
for the first time. So, the employers — I’m not sure the employers
are too happy about that, but it’s a good thing, wages. For years — I mean,
I’d go out and I’d campaign, I’d talk about people
making more money 21 years ago
than they made today. Well, now, their wages,
for the first time in about 19 years, are going up. And our workers deserve that. We had people
working three jobs, two jobs, and they were doing worse
than they did 20 years ago. That’s not happening anymore. The heart of our America First economic agenda
are massive tax cuts, which we got we got with Kevin
and all of the folks up here. We got approved —
not since Ronald Reagan. And ours our bigger and our plan
is much bigger and our reform — we got ANWR. We got the individual
mandate knocked out. That was the beautiful
Obamacare disaster — (applause) — where you paid a fortune
for the privilege of not having to buy Obamacare. Can you believe it? So, you paid a lot of money
for the privilege of not having to pay
for bad healthcare. So, we’ve done a real job and we
just got association healthcare approved which is going
to be incredible. You associate
as companies, as people. And you’re going to get great healthcare —
highly competitive — at a much lower price
than you’ve been paying. It’s all kicking in right now. We actually beat Obamacare. It was done and then
one gentleman decided to go like this at the final moment
late in the morning. I’m sure you don’t know
who I’m talking about. (Laughter) But that’s fine because we’ve
just about killed it anyway. It is a horror show —
Obamacare. So, we have that and we’re
going to be announcing another healthcare
in the next two weeks done by Secretary Alex Azar, who’s one of
the great executives and he decided to come over here
at a very substantial pay cut and run something like it’s — like playing a violin
by a great, talented person. He’s done an incredible job. And we’re going to be
announcing healthcare — another form of healthcare —
in about two weeks, and it’s going to be
very exceptional. We’ve done things, in terms
of health, that have been — you know, if you had a problem, you had a kind of
a health problem that was just real — you had to go to different
countries to look. We have Right to Try. For years, they’ve been
trying to get this approved. Right to Try. You’re terminally ill, you want
hope, you want your health back, and we have these
incredible drugs in the pipeline which we — by the way, we’re taking them
from many years into a much shorter
period of time — by we have a right to try. We’re now, instead of going — people were going to
other continents to see if they could get helped
and get help. And we now have the right
where you can go and we give you things
that look promising and a lot of people
are very happy about that. And a lot of this
is going to work, too. I mean, very importantly,
it’s going to work. So it’s called Right to Try. Just passed recently. And that’s something that, to
me, was always very important. I could never understand
why they’re going to Africa and Asia and Europe and all over the world
to try and get help when we have
the greatest medicine in the world right here. And the great doctors. And, Kevin, I would
never have believed that was going to be so hard. Majority Leader McCarthy: It
was. The President: But there were
lots of problems. The insurance companies
had problems. The healthcare companies
had problems. The pharmaceutical
companies had problems. But we worked it out. And now you have it, and you
have it at the highest level. So it’s something, I think,
hopefully you don’t need it. Okay? Hopefully nobody needs it. But at least, if you’re in this
very unfortunate position, you have a real good shot. At the heart of our America
First agenda are the tax cuts and
the reduction and regulations. I think the reduction
and regulations are as big a factor
in the country’s success as anything that we’ve done,
including the tax cuts. We’ve cut more regulations —
and we have regulations; you need regulation. We want the cleanest air that
you can have, and we have that. We want crystal clean water,
So important. But it was crazy
what was happening. You couldn’t do anything. You know about it from
the mining industries and all of the different work
that you’ve had stopped and that now is going forward. So much work is going
forward in Minnesota and in so many other states. So, we have a regulation
situation that has been not fully implemented, because we have — statutorily,
we have certain lengths of time. You can’t do anything
after 90 days, and you have to wait
another 120 days. But we’ve cut out massive
numbers of regulations. More regulations
than any President in the history of our country. And that’s four years,
eight years, or, in one case, sixteen years. We’ve done that in 500 days
and we have more to go. (Applause) As you know, in Minnesota
we’ve set a record on expansion of American energy. We’re now an exporter of energy
for the first time. We’re actually selling energy,
which we hadn’t done. We’re trying to take
care of ourselves. We’re much less reliant
on faraway lands that we always had to protect. And now we’ll protect
our friends, but we’re not
protecting our enemies. You saw that with the Iran deal
that we terminated, and rightfully so. It was a horrible deal
for our country. So, we have fair and reciprocal
trade for American workers. We want to be treated
in a reciprocal way — it’s so important. We have other people
that will charge, as an example, 375 percent tariff
on dairy products, and we charge very little,
that’s not reciprocal. That’s really a barrier
to our farmers and to people selling
to those other countries. So, we want reciprocal trade. And the era
of economic surrender for the United States is over. It’s just over. And just to finish up,
national security, we had $700 billion
approved for our military. We had $716 billion approved
for next year, for our military. We needed that. I hated the last budget, except I loved what happened
to our military. And sometimes you’ll take
a little bit of a hit in order to take
care of military. Without the military,
we’re not here. We have the most powerful
military that we’ve ever had — very shortly, on line. We’re ordering planes,
we’re ordering ships, we’re ordering a lot
of different things. The finest equipment
in the world. We make the best equipment. And it also means jobs —
secondarily, in this case. Jobs, in the case of military,
to me, are secondary. But we’re making and building
the finest planes and ships and everything else
in the world for our military. We will have the most powerful, the strongest military
that we’ve ever had. And hopefully we’ll never
have to use it. You know, when you’re
in that position, you don’t have to use it. When you’re in a weak position,
you probably do. And bad things happen. So, the military
is taken care of. We want to have
a very strong border. As you know, I signed
an executive order this morning letting
families stay together. The laws are horrible. We have the weakest, most pathetic immigration laws anywhere in the world. Nobody has laws like we do. Mexico — which makes over
$100 billion a year with us — but we’re changing that — Mexico, with the NAFTA deal,
makes a fortune. They have very powerful
immigration laws. They could stop
the immigration on the spot, but they choose not to do it. I made them do it with respect to the caravan
from three weeks ago, where 2,000 people started and
about 100 people got through. But they could stop. They have
a 2,000-mile journey up Mexico. Mexico doesn’t stop the people. Well, we’re not going
to put up with it, and I’m going to make it a part
of NAFTA that they have to. In the meantime,
we’re working on laws, on making them very strong. But we have to make
them compassionate. We hire thousands of judges. No other country does this. Judges. We don’t want judges;
we want Border Patrol. I want Border Patrol. If they’re not supposed
to be in the country, they’re not supposed to be. Now, they can enter at your port
of entry, and that’s fine. But we have to have
control of our borders. And once we lose our borders,
we lose our country. We don’t have a country. And once we ease up and say, oh,
gee, everybody please come up, we’ll have millions
of people flowing through. You have plenty of problems
up here in Minnesota with respect
to people coming in. And you’ve had a lot of problems
and a lot of difficulty. And it’s probably
one of the reasons that I almost won Minnesota, which hasn’t been won
by a Republican statewide in a long time. And you will — you’ve seen
a big difference already in Minnesota. Tremendous difference. A lot of things have happened. Incredible things
have happened having to do with immigration in Minnesota
since we got in. So, we have to have strong
borders, totally strong. We can’t put with the nonsense. At the same time,
we’re doing it with compassion. And I signed an executive order
keeping families together, because I think that’s probably a very important
thing to be doing. And I also think that
it’s the right thing to do. But we haven’t let up. We’re very, very powerful
at the border. We’re going to need the wall,
it has to be built. We got to stop the drugs
from pouring in. We have to stop people
from coming in, if they’re not
authorized to come in if they don’t go
through the process. You know, we have
tremendous numbers of people that have waited for years
and years and years to come in. And they’ve gone
through a process, and it’s been a hard process
and a long process. And then you have people
coming over the border, and all of a sudden
they’re in our country. It’s a very unfair situation,
and we’re going to stop it. We’re going to have laws by the
time — as soon as I can do it. This has been going on
for many, many decades. This hasn’t started here. This is a disaster
for many decades. So, we worked and did
a great job on North Korea. We did a great job
on the economy. And as I said,
if the other group got in, your economy would have
gone down the tubes because they would have put
more regulations on, more taxes. They wouldn’t have
given you a tax decrease; they would have given you
a massive tax increase. Nancy Pelosi came out
the other day, she wants everybody
to pay much more taxes. She wants to end the tax cuts and she wants people
to pay much more taxes. You do that, you will
totally kill this economy. You’ll kill the country. So instead of going up — and
you’ll see what the numbers are; they’ll be released
fairly soon for the quarter. But if you look at GDP
at 3.2 percent — and I think they’re
going to go much higher. I mean, we’re doing so well. But if I would have said
3.2 percent to those people back there,
nobody would have believed it. And we’re doing 3.2 percent. We were at 1.2, and I’m telling
you, we were headed down. We were going down because
I sort of love the way they say, Obama did the economy, Obama. If Hillary Clinton got elected, our economy would be
a disaster right now. It would be a total disaster. And our trade deals
would have gotten worse instead of gotten better. So, we’re very proud
of what we’ve done. We’re very proud of this state and the people of
the state of Minnesota. They are incredible people. And you have some
tremendous stories to tell. And maybe we’re going
to start, Kelsey, with you, and you’ll sort of lead us
around the table, okay? Thank you very much. Thank you
for everything you’ve done. Appreciate it. Ms. Johnson: Thank you. And I can’t thank you enough
for the Section 232 and the steel tariffs. We have definitely
seen an increase in our overall productivity, and we’ve had a lot
of employees called back, not only in our iron mines but also in our
steelmaking facilities. And that has really been
a real benefit to this area. We thank you very much
for taking that very seriously and raising that issue
both here in the United States but internationally, as well. The quotas were a good answer, but I think that this is
a very solid answer and we’re very,
very appreciative of that. The President: Well,
I don’t like the quotas as much as the tariffs —
I never have — because the quotas mean
you might run out of material. I never want to run
out of material. But, you know, we have,
on steel, 25 percent; on aluminum, 10 percent. And I will tell you, I’ve had — the head of U.S. Steel
called me the other day, and he said, we’re opening up
six major facilities and expanding facilities
that have never been expanded. They haven’t been opened
in many, many years. And the steel industry is doing
unbelievably well, very quickly. Quicker than I even thought. Aluminum, the same thing. And we’ve done it
with other products too. But in particular,
steel and aluminum, you can’t lose these industries. We need these industries. We need them
for national defense. We need them
for a lot of reasons. So, thank you very much. Ms. Johnson: Yeah,
we really appreciate it. (Applause) The President: Please. Mr. Morse: My name
is Adam Morse. I’m a production truck driver
with U.S. Steel Minntac. I wanted to thank you
for your America First policies. It’s really helping
our industry a lot. The President: And I love
your hat. Mr. Morse: Yeah, thank you. The President: I love that hat. (Laughter) Wow, it’s beautiful. Mr. Morse: The tax plan
is working, and I’m seeing a difference
in my paycheck. So thank you for that. And you’re right
about regulation. We are — if certain groups
get their way about sulfates
and regulations in Minnesota, we’re going to be out of a job,
and the Iron Range will suffer. We’ll be out of business. So again, on that,
with regulation, we thank you for reducing them and giving us a chance
to do our job. The President: And you know
we’re working very hard on opening up that area so that we can explore it
and see what’s there. And I think we’ll
be able to do it. We have one further approval
to get, as you know very well. And Pete is working
on it very hard. And I think we’re going to
really produce something. We were talking about it just
a little while ago, coming down. I think we’re going
to be able to that. I made a call already,
we’ll get it done. That’s a big, big important
thing for our country and for Minnesota. So, we’re going to get
that done for you. Okay? Thank you. (Applause) Pete. Commissioner Stauber: Mr.
President, thank you for coming to
the great state of Minnesota, and for coming to our port and seeing the men and women
that have built America. Our union workers have
built this country, and the steelworkers
won World War II. Our Iron Range produced
the most steel, and we won World War II because of the men and women
on the Iron Range. And Mr. President,
you mentioned — you were taking about the land
(inaudible). We are on the cusp
of doing something great. We have the biggest precious
metals mine in the world, and we are going to mine
precious metals, and we will do it safely. We have the greatest
freshwater lake in the world, Lake Superior,
which we all love — The President: Right. Commissioner Stauber: —
and we will keep that pristine. So, I appreciate
your time coming here and speaking to the folks here
on the port, and the Iron Range, and the building
and construction trades folks. I will also add that
we have a great industry as well in the timber — in our logging
and timber industry that is vitally important. We need to be able
to cut 100 percent of the sales on our federal
forests, rather than half. That’s going to keep
the good people in work. (Applause) The President: Right. And as you know,
we’re working on that, Pete. And we’ve come
a long way on that. And it is, it’s among the most
valuable pieces of land in the world that you have
right here in Minnesota, but you can’t touch it. And people want to explore it, and they want to see
what they can do. So, we’re going to be
working on that. That’s going to probably happen,
I want to let you know. It’s probably going to happen. Commissioner Stauber: Great,
greatly appreciate it. The President: And
congratulations. Good luck on your race, and I know you’re
going to do very well. Proud of you. Commissioner Stauber:
Thank you, sir. The President: Thank you. (Applause) Please. Deputy Secretary Bernhardt: Mr.
President, at the end of last year, you issued an executive order of developing a strategy for critical minerals. The President: Right. Deputy Secretary Bernhardt:
And you recognized that the United States, despite its vast
natural resource wealth, was very dependent on foreign
sources for critical minerals. And your direction to us
at Interior was to do additional mapping, and look at streamlining
our permitting processes, and creating greater
access of federal lands. And we have been
rigorous and relentless in doing that
and driving that forward. And we believe that you
may have inherited a mess, but this is an area where we
really truly can fix America. The President: Right,
we will do that. And we’ve made a lot
of progress, as you know, in a very short period of time. Somebody said, coming over, that the previous administration
took away your way of life. And I said, wow, that’s such
an incredible statement. That’s such a tough statement. But there’s a lot
of truth to it. In a certain way, your way
of life was taken away, and livelihoods were
taken away for no reason. And if you do
what you want to do, it will be better,
and the land will be better. So, we’re going to be —
I think we’re going to be closer than anyone
understands or thinks. We’ve done it with
so many other elements of what we’ve touched
with the administration, so I think we’re going
to be able to pull that off, and we’re working
very hard on it. Okay? Thank you very much. Please. Mr. Tichy: Mr. President,
it’s an honor, and it’s great to —
you’re a man of your word. Through the campaign,
you promised to put the American
worker first, and I just want
to thank you for that. All of my fellow miners. I’ve been in this
industry for 42 years, and I’ve went through
bankruptcies with different — I worked for (inaudible),
and we went bankrupt. Cliffs came in
and invested $75 million. And all them job losses were because of this imported
steel and dumping. And I just want to thank you
on behalf of my fellow workers for your administration’s
tariffs on the steel. It’ll certainly help. And just, again,
being a man of your word, and putting
the American worker first. The President: Well, that’s
very nice, thank you very much. That’s really good. Thank you. And, Jason, you and Tom
have really helped us get there, and you’ve been fighting
for this state so hard. And you don’t play games. These two people,
they don’t play games. And we have another one,
Sean Duffy. I don’t know
if he’s in the room — Majority Leader McCarthy: He
went to the rally. The President: Oh, he’s at
the rally already, see? He didn’t want
to bother with us. He’s already at the rally. We have a lot of people
going to that rally, I think. How many people
do they expect? Like nine thousand,
ten thousand? That’s only because
that’s all it could handle. It’s more, but that’s
all it could handle. Jason, go ahead. Representative Lewis: Well,
Mr. President, thank you so much
for coming to Minnesota. And you will win
Minnesota in 2020. I can guarantee you that. (Applause) The President: I hope so,
I hope so. Representative Lewis: You know, just to piggyback on
what the President said, the previous administration
had passed some-600 major rules with a significant
economic impact. That’s $100 million. That’s one rule
every five days. The Federal Register
had 97,000 pages in it by the time
Obama was done. This administration,
under President Trump and this Congress, went in there
and repealed those — many of those
executive branch rules with 16 signed
Congressional Review Acts going back into the
previous administration undoing those rules. Up until the 115th, up until
President Donald J. Trump, the Congress had done one CRA. We did 16 in 500 days. (Applause) That’s repealing about $3.7
billion of rules and regulations that were hampering
energy and mining and manufacturing
in Minnesota. So, for that, we just
thank the President, and we’ve got more
to do in the 115. And Kevin has been
a great leader. But we’re going to
continue this job, because, folks,
we’ve only just begun. (Applause) The President: Great,
thank you, Jason. Good job. You’ve done a great job. Thank you, Jason. Please. Mayor Zupancich: Hi,
thank you again for coming. This is truly a great honor for not only myself but my town, as well. We’re in Northern Minnesota,
a small town, and our biggest fear
and concern right now is the withdrawal
of the proposed — the withdrawal proposal
which is affecting 235,000 acres of exploratory mining. And we have over
4 billion tons of copper and precious metals
that we have the largest supply. But not only does that affect,
as everyone knows, the defense and everything
that goes along with it, but those mining leases
contribute billions of dollars to our school trust funds
for the K-12 education system for the entire state. So, without that,
we don’t have that money for the school
trust funds as well. So, it’s twofold and our town
has potentially two mines — additional mines —
on top of Cleveland-Cliffs, awesome company
Northshore Mining. We have a lot to gain and we have even more to lose
if this doesn’t happen. And we want to see our town
continue to thrive to what it was once
and even better so. The President: Good, thank you. You’ve gone through
the Department of Interior. I hear you’re pretty far along. And now you need Department
of Agriculture — surprisingly, actually. But it’s now up
to Secretary Perdue. And I know he’s looking
at it very strongly, and I think
you’ll do very well. Mayor Zupancich: Well,
and we also have a hat for you here, too. The President: Oh, I like that. (Laughter) Mayor Zupancich: Do you? Good. (Laughter) The President: Thank you,
thank you very much. (Applause) Mayor Zupancich: Thank you
very much. The President: Thank you very much. Please. Mr. Jussila: Mr. President,
my name is Craig Jussila, which I’m glad you got
my last name right. The President: I got it. Mr. Jussila: Because a lot
of people don’t. The President: I got it. Mr. Jussila: But I work
for Cleveland-Cliffs up in Silver Bay, and the taconite
facility at Northshore Mining. I’m a ship loader
and heavy equipment operator. And I’m a 4th generation miner,
it runs deep in my family. It’s really important to us
to keep these jobs going. I put my two kids through
college with the money I make. And my dad worked there;
he started there in 1962. So, there’s been a Jussila
working in Silver Bay since 1962. And I’m also a city councilor. And back in 2015, the plant was
idled because of steel imports. We all got laid off
it’s not a good feeling. So now, with your tariffs, we don’t have to worry
about that anymore, hopefully. You know, we’ll keep
on going strong. And I’m happy to announce
that Cleveland-Cliffs is spending $75 million
in Silver Bay to make a new pellet that we’re
going to produce there for DR-grade iron ore pellets. They can go directly into —
The President: That’s right. Mr. Jussila: —
electric arc furnaces. So that’s — it’s really good. And it’s clear that your actions
are letting this happen. And I hope you come away
from your visit to Northeast Minnesota
with a full appreciate of how important
these jobs are. I mean, they keep us going. And lastly, we’d really
like to thank you and appreciate your commitment
to the trade enforcement, and that you keep on doing it. The President: Thank you
very much, Craig. That’s beautiful
and I appreciate it. And, you know, I want to
tell you about the tariffs. People don’t talk about this. Not only has the steel
industry come back; the aluminum
industry come back. You look at solar panels. You know, solar panels
were — it was dead. They were all
coming in from China and putting our companies
out of business and not high quality, either. It was not what we want. And we had, I believe, 32 plants and almost every one
of them was closed. And now they’re
starting to open again. We did tariffs on solar panels. We did tariffs
on washing machines. They were dumping
washing machines. Would you believe this? It’s actually a big business. But they were dumping washing
machines all over the country, and our companies were
going out of business and leaving the country. They were all leaving
and going to other places to make the washing machines. Now they’re all coming back, and that business
is a vibrant business, and it’s going to very soon
be a very big business and a very vibrant
business again. But one thing nobody talks about is the money that’s pouring
into the Treasury. You know, these tariffs —
you’re talking about billions and billions of dollars, and money is pouring
into the Treasury. We forgot about that. Nobody ever mentions it
and nobody mentions the jobs. But the jobs in steel
and aluminum, and iron ore, and all of
the different industries that, you know,
they go to make this up — it’s a tremendous
thing happening. A beautiful thing happening. And again, Kevin understands
this because he sees it, but we have billions of dollars
coming back into our Treasury. And foreign nations were just
ripping us left and right. And honestly, we had Presidents that didn’t
do anything about it. They didn’t — they didn’t understand it. It wasn’t their thing,
but they didn’t understand it. But it was going to
destroy our country. So we’re not
letting that happen. Thank you, Craig.
I appreciate it very much. Please. (Applause) Mayor Vlaisavljevich: Mr.
President, I can appreciate
this visit here. On behalf of Eveleth
and the surrounding area, I’ve been mayor there off
and on for 16 years. But when I first heard
about your ideas of tariffs and fair trade, I knew that was going to bring
stability to our main industry, because other than taconite, our main export is our
young people from school; there are no opportunities. And to speak for
everyone else here, we have some opportunities. Some copper-nickel projects
we’re on the verge of starting. And their caught — bogged down
in the bureaucratic swamp. And I think they need
a jumpstart, because when environmentalists
are not so much concerned about the environment as one
of these projects starting up, their fear is they won’t
perform as advertised, and meet specification.
The President: Right. Mayor Vlaisavljevich: And that
will bring us the economic diversity we like to see up here. So, if we do have problems, we’ll have a diverse
mineral base to fall back on and we’ll never again have
this feast-or-famine economy. And I think you got six years
to get this done for us. (Laughter) So we’re banking on it. (Applause) Again, thank you. The President: Thank you,
Mr. — thank you for you
nice statements — of all places,
the New York Times. That was really —
that was really great. Yeah, give that over,
give that over. Mr. Klozowoski: Thank you
for your visit. The President: Thank you,
thank you. Thank you very much for
those statements, by the way. Yes. Mr. Klozowoski: Mr. President,
a couple of success stories. You probably saw that large flag hanging off of the boom truck
when you came in. The President: That’s right. Mr. Klozowoski: That company
is called Altec. And if you look closer,
you saw a hiring sign on there. We recently completed
an agreement with those folks. We built them a $3.5 million
addition to their warehouse. They, in turn, contributed
$14 million with a commitment to put 300 jobs
in the next three years. They were already at 100. And we just signed
that agreement, and we haven’t
started digging yet and they’re asking
for more space, so — The President: Big difference Mr. Klozowoski: It’s a — that’s a success story. Another one is, we’ve set up
an intermodal freight area here at Duluth —
never been done before — where we are now handling
containers from the West Coast. We have the capability to ship
anywhere and anytime, with anything,
as a result of that capability. The customers that
we’ve been used to — our old tried-and-true
customers — have experienced expansion because of the new tax structure and the lack of regulations. And they’re coming to us
with more business than we’ve seen in the past. We’ve got new customers
coming from within our area and outside of our area
looking for more — for our logistics
capability here. By the way, these logistics guys
in the high-visibility shirts there with Lake Superior
Warehousing — our partners —
have done all this. The President: Great. Great. Stand up. (Applause) Thank you. Thank you, fellas. Thank you very much. Great job, great job. Mr. Klozowoski: We had expected
modest gains in our container operation. But it’s exceeded that. We are now looking to increase
our container yard again, with a large expansion. And the highway department
is looking at an intersection that is up here
at the intersection of I-35. It’s become a priority project
because they anticipate a two- to three-fold increase in truck
traffic coming out of the port. We’re shipping cargo out of here
and receiving it — that never thought of before. And it’s all due
to the economic boom. People are feeling that
and are using us. The President: Well,
thank you very much. And the expensing
was a big help. (Applause) I know the expensing is — you know,
the one-year expensing, that’s one of the — I think that’s going
to be the superstar of all of the different
clauses that we do. Very simple clause,
but one-year expensing, that helps people that have
businesses just like yours. And it’s been pretty amazing. I will say this: They were
dumping steel into our country. Like dumping it,
dumping it, dumping it. And people said,
oh, that’s terrible. But where it’s
really terrible is, after you lose all
your steel industry and after you lose all
your aluminum industry, then they set any price
they want because you’re gone. So, they dump it,
they ruin your industry, and then they dump —
not so freely anymore — they increase prices
to a level that you can’t pay. And that’s what
would have happened. But we never let them
get to that second step. That second step would
have been devastating. (Applause) What happens. Tom Emmer. Go ahead, Tom. Thank you for that letter. And you’ve done a great job. Representative Emmer: My wife
sent me a note, when I showed her the picture
that you had read her letter. And she said she’s in love. So, I think I have a problem. (Laughter) Mr. President, Jason is right —
Jason Lewis — you are going to win
Minnesota next time. You will be
the first Republican — (applause) — since 1972. And the reason is this: We can listen to all
these great stories, but on behalf of my state and the people
who live here that I love, you are a leader at a time when there are so few
leaders around the world. The people that you see
in this room right now, and the people who
are sitting up here, have been dying for somebody
to hear them, to listen to them, and to understand
what they need. Instead, they’ve had academics
and intellectuals patting them
on the head for years, telling, We got this,
we’ll take care of you. And they’ve been killing
their livelihoods up here in the great north
and all across this country. God bless you for
following through and talking to the forgotten men
and women of this country. And thank you so much, it’s
an honor that you’re serving. (Applause) The President: Thank you. Very nice. Thank you. I appreciate it. Very nice, thank you. Please. Mr. Carlson: Mr. President,
I want to talk about the jobs. Now, the copper-nickel mining with PolyMet and Twin Metals — great jobs. Great-paying jobs
with great benefits. But it’s not just those people who are benefitting
from this building and mining that’s
going to take place. There’s secondary
and tertiary jobs that they supply
all of the mines, and they’re going to have
to hire more people. And they, as well,
have very good-paying jobs that they can support
their families on. So, it’s very important to have
these mines take place and help revitalize
Northeastern Minnesota. And on top of that —
(applause) — it has national
security implications. You know? Really, national
security not just — we don’t want to rely
on our enemies. But we need to rebuild
our infrastructure. And what a great
resource to build with our own
homegrown materials, homemade materials, and rebuild the infrastructure
of America. The President: That’s right. Thank you very much. Mr. Carlson: Thank you. (Applause) The President: You know, I say
it so much and it’s so sad, but we have $7 trillion
in the Middle East. You might as well
throw it out the window. Seven trillion dollars. And now you want to build
a road in Minnesota or you want to do
something for peanuts — it’s like you have to fight
for every nickel and dime. It’s ridiculous. That’s why I’m so happy with
what we did with the military, with the $700 billion and 716 the second year —
billion dollars. But I appreciate
what you’re saying, and we’re starting
infrastructure. We’ve already passed some
very good infrastructure bills. We’re working on airports. We’re like a third-world
country with our airports. It’s ridiculous, we led the way
years ago — many years ago. And now you land in airports
in China and in Saudi Arabia and in different places, Dubai, and you look at these airports
and you say, this is incredible. We’re like a third-world country
with our airports. Not going to happen,
so, we’re rebuilding airports. We’re building
our control systems and doing a lot of work already. But what is happening is growth. And growth really solves
just about all the problems. And the growth is far beyond
what anybody thought. Nobody thought they’d see growth
like the kind of growth — during debates
I would talk about — we’d have a debate
and I’d talk about growth, and nobody knew what
I was talking about. Well, the growth
has been far bigger than anybody ever
thought possible. And the numbers — you know,
if we go up one point in GDP — one point — it’s $3 trillion
and it’s 10 million jobs. Think of that, one point. And we’ll see
if we hit the fours. But we’re going to be very close
to hitting the fours. And if we would
have said fours — if we would have said twos,
nobody would have believed it. But I think we’re going to be
starting to hit fours. So, we’ll see. Those numbers are going
to start coming out over the next number of months and over the next
number of years. But I think we’ll even
go higher than that. So, thank you
with what you said. I appreciate it very much. Thank you. (Applause) Yes, sir. Mr. Nelson: Thank you,
Mr. President. First of all, it is
a tremendous honor and a privilege
to have you come. Welcome to St. Louis County. The President: Thank you. Mr. Nelson: Mr. President,
on behalf of the women that I represent, I was asked to ask you
one question: How’s the First Lady feeling? The President: She’s
doing great. She went through a pretty
big thing, but she came out. I mean, she’s really — great doctors at Walter
Reed Medical Center. She is doing fantastically well. She’s all — 100 percent. (Applause) Thank you. Mr. Nelson: Mr. President,
the great thing about being last is I’ve gotten to hear
pretty much all of the concerns that we have up here
in Northeastern Minnesota. But I really want to touch
on a couple of things. And I have to tell you that
the people that I represent — and that district, by the way, in St. Louis County produces the vast majority
of taconite pellets in these United States
of America. And if you look back
in that second row there, you will see the people that are
the general managers of each and every one of those
taconite plants. Mr. President — The President: Stand up. I want to see. Stand up. Good job. (Applause) Mr. Nelson: You will also see
the general manager of what is going to be
the first copper-nickel mine in Northeastern Minnesota,
Jon Cherry. The President: Good. (Applause) Good luck. Mr. Nelson: And we also have
with us here today representatives
from the building trades. These are the men
and women who — they’re not temporary jobs,
Mr. President. They’re permanent jobs
in temporary locations, building this great country. So, when we have (inaudible) and these building
trades folks out here, they’re seeing the difference
that you’re making. We in Northwestern Minnesota, we’re sick and tired
of the bureaucrats telling us what we can do
with the lands that we cherish. And, Mr. President, we have some
of the cleanest lakes, streams, and rivers in the
United States of America. And we’ve been mining here
for 100 years. So, Mr. President,
when you get back inside that Beltway out there, stay on top
of those regulations. The President: We will. Mr. Nelson: Get them off
our back even more. And I promise you, this Iron Range will make
this country proud. The President: Very good,
and I know that. (Applause)
I know that. So, what you’re saying
is you don’t need the bureaucrats from D.C. — (laughter) — to come and tell you
how to take care of your beautiful
lakes and rivers. And nobody has more than you do. We — I agree
with that 100 percent. Mr. Nelson: And if I can
just talk fair trade for just a second. In about six months, you’re going to take from the St. Louis county board probably one of
the best commissioners we’ve had in 20 years, okay? I want something back, okay? (Laughter) Participant: Trade Pete? Mr. Nelson: I want something
back, Mr. President. (Laughter) The President: We made a
good deal. We made a good deal. (Applause) You’re right. That’s great. That’s great. Pete is outstanding and loves
this state, loves this country. So, good. We’re going to spend a lot of time together today. It’s going to be very exciting
in about an hour from now. Right, Pete? Thank you very much. Great. Mr. Nelson: Thank you,
Mr. President. The President:
Beautifully said, Kevin? Majority Leader McCarthy: Well,
I don’t want to talk to you; I want to talk about you
to all of you. What a difference one
administration makes, right? What a difference
one President makes. (Applause) Now, I get to see him
behind closed doors, and out front he’s no different. The facts don’t lie. So, he set a goal
and he surpasses all the goals. He said, for every
one new regulation you want to propose,
you got to cut two. You know what he’s averaged? He’s cut 22 for every
new one that’s proposed. (Applause) You talk about unemployment — in the last 49 years
in this country, unemployment has only been
below 4 percent seven months in 49 years. But two of those seven months
were April and May of this year. Think about how far we’ve gone. (Applause) Now, come Friday is our
six-month anniversary of the Tax Cuts
and Jobs Act bill. We didn’t name it; he did. And you know what? He was right. Look at what the tax
cuts have done. Just created
its one-millionth job. Look at the jobs
that are being created and look at the money
that is going back and the raises is going forward. Now, we’re not far
from the Iron Range, and that’s what
you all talk about. Our first Republican President
was a guy named Abraham Lincoln, and he referred to those
founders of the creation of the creation
of our country — that generation —
as the Iron Men, because they fought for
the foundation and the values. We know who the iron men
and women are today; they’re the workers. They’re the people
who care about — want to take their
children to school, what to send them to college,
want to buy the house. But I think they you’re
going to be successful because I believe
we got an iron President today. (Applause) The President: Thank you,
so nice. Well, this has been an honor,
and I look forward now to going. We’re being led to this big, beautiful arena with lots of people. Not going to have
any empty seats. We don’t like
to see empty seats. That’s never a good sign. And it’s — I was watching
on one of the newscasts, about four hours ago, people lined up
to get in there, Pete. So that’s a tribute
to all of you — Jason, Tom, you,
Sean, all of you. But this is a very special
part of the country. It’s a great part
of the country. And, you know, we got elected — I think one of the
greatest phrases ever, Make Again Great Again. Make America great again. And we’re doing that. That’s what we’re doing. We’re making
American great again. And for our next campaign
we have a new slogan, which — I think we can’t use
Make America Great Again, because that would be like, Gee, we didn’t do it
the first time? (Laughter) It’s going to be very simple:
Keep America Great. (Applause) Because that’s what we’re doing. Keep America Great. So that will be in
another two years. We’ve gone through 500 days, and now you add 10 to it,
so it’s about 510 days. And I don’t think there has
been an administration in the first 500 days
that’s been close, between regulations, and taxes, and Supreme Court
Justice Gorsuch, and many, many judges,
and so much other things, and rebuilding our military, and doing so many things. And we’re very proud of it. And I’m very proud
of this state. This is a great place. This is an incredible place. And we will fulfill
all of our promises. We’ve done most of them,
and I appreciate the nice words. And I really do appreciate
those beautiful words coming from a former Democrat
especially, right? (Laughter) I read, “Former Democrat.” But you are very special people. And thank you very much. It’s been an honor. Thank you. (Applause)

  2. After what trump has done to these children and families, there is no country on the planet that thinks the US is a moral model who should be listened to. NK Kim fed his uncle to dogs, but the uncle wasn't a 6 month old baby held hostage for an ignorant wall. Duterte in the Phillipines may be summarily killing drug users and dealers, but trump is kidnapping children with no plans to ever reunite them. Kim and Duterte are scum below the level of manure, but trump is worse because his victims are infants, toddlers and children. Any trumptards want to defend him?
    18 usc §§1201 kidnapping and 1203 hostage taking are high crimes in addition to 18 USC §242 which specifically addresses aliens. and §241 which covers conspiracy to deprive rights under color of law. trump is a criminal before the whole world.

  16. So tired of the bullying. I do not wear it on my sleeve but I have no fear of telling someone that I am a deplorable. The left is going so crazy. I cannot beleive that there are any moderate democrats left. I just want to know what they are for. I know what they are against.

  17. The Democrats work to destroy jobs, knowing that when people do not have a pay packet they earn't, they do not have a voice, they are dependent on the state, and that is where they Democrats want them, under the rule of the Democrats.

He is robbing America blind with his crooked swamp…..he'll lie about anything and everything and it has been proven he's a racist. Look once a dictator gets in you'll never get rid of them. Act now before it's too late. His die hards remind me of the person who has been scammed by someone they think loves them but will never admit it because they dont want to believe it. Then it's too late. Stick with him and my friend you will be so sorry.

  20. The enemy is not just Democrats, but affluent Quisling, Environmental Lawyers, check out Kevin Haroff, Marten Law, SF and him as Vice Mayor, Larkspurg, Marin County. He and his ilk, live like princes, but keep out the poor. Make it a destination for the Mexicans at the border. they need to see reality. It is not there for those who live in luxury.

  21. I really do have some very good ideas that would do us a lot of good. Creating employment threw the creation of garden dome homes and revitalizing deserts and sea domes and fish farms… I would really like to put my dreams to work as soon as I can get to work ,but I need hiring for 10%

  22. Dear Donald, your the greatest president of all time and that means the navy will name a great aircraft carrier after you. Be very careful young man,,, Hillary will get a job on that ship just so that she can scuttle you. Think of it, she’s prepared to go down on you just to get even,,, that’s about the most horrible payback anyone ever did!

  23. Love you President Trump. I'm so thankful that you are our President. Thank you everything!!!!! KMAG!!!! Keep fighting -WE'RE BEHIND YOU!!!!

  24. – Korean -2-1. 가정과 교회 · 국가를 무너뜨리는 10가지 전략…  자유를 추구하는 세계인들, 특히 미국인들과 기독교인들이여 !!! 다음 글을 읽어보고 지난 세월 세계 곳곳, 특히 대한민국에서 일어난 일들과 지금 일어나고 있는 일들과를 씨줄 날줄 엮어보고 자유를 지키고 기독교적 가치관을 지키시라!!!  ***가정과 교회 · 국가를  무너뜨리는 10가지 전략<사탄숭배자 앨리스 베일리(Alice A. Bailey 1880-1949)가 ‘10가지 플랜’이라는 책으로 전파>  //01. 교육 시스템으로부터 하나님과 기도를 제거하라. 커리큘럼을 변경시켜서 기독교문화의 속박으로부터 아동들을 해방시켜라. 아동들이 학교에 가는 목적은 장래의 인생을 감당할 준비를 하려는 것이고 아동들은 학교와 교사를 신뢰하며 거기에 우월적 가치를 둘 것이기 때문이다. 그런데 교육에서 성경과 하나님을 배제한다면, 아동들은 인생을 살아가는데 있어서 하나님이 필요하지 않다는 신념을 무의식적으로 가지게 될 것이다. 아동들은 학교당국이 중요하다고 인정하는 것에만 중시하여 초점을 맞출 것이며, 하나님은 그저 있어도 없어도 되는 부차적인 존재로만 여기게 될 것이다. (현실) : 1962년 6월25일 미국연방대법원은 정교분리원칙을 내세워 공립학교에서 하나님과 성경을 가르치는 것에 금지판결을 내렸다. 주기도문과 수업 전 기도는 금지되었다. 오히려 미국의 일부학교들은 힌두교에서 나온 초월명상법을 가르치고 있는데, 이는 아동들을 의식전이 상태로 만들어 귀신들과 접촉시킨다. 아동들은 명상 가운데 ‘안내자영’을 만난다고 하는데, 그것은 곧 귀신이다. 하나님 아닌 귀신과의 교제를 학교가 장려한다. //02. 아동들에 대한 부모의 권위를 축소시켜라. 부모와 자식 사이에 의사소통을 끊어라. 부모들이 자신들이 지키는 기독교적전통을 자녀들에게 물려주지 못하게 함으로써 부모의 전통이라는 속박으로부터 아이들을 해방시켜야 한다. 이를 위해 다음의 구체적 방법을 사용하라. <앨리스 앤 베일리가 제시한 구체적인 방법들)>. ①. 아동권리를 과잉되게 신장시켜라.  (현실) : 남아공화국은 1997~1998년에 UN이 제정한 유니세프헌장의 아동권리를 국내법에 받아들였는데, 그 이후 부모나 교사는 아동을 가르치고 명령할 수 없다. 아동들은 부모에게 “나는 그런 말 듣고 싶지 않아요. 내게 말하는 대로 하고 싶지 않아요.”라고 말할 수 있으며, 교사에게 “내게는 권리가 있습니다. 그런 식으로 말하지 마세요”라고 말하며, 부모와 교사는 그에 대한 아무런 대책이 없다. 이 같은 아동권리선언이 일부교육감들이 만든 학생인권조례에 그대로 들어와 교육에 파괴적인 영향을 미치고 있다.  ②. 아동체벌을 폐지하라. (현실) : 실제로 오늘날 선진국 대부분의 나라에서는 아동이 아무리 잘못해도 체벌할 수 없게 법으로 금지된 실정이다. 한국의 학생인권조례 역시 체벌을 일체금지하고 있다. ③ 교사들을 10가지 전략의 실행요원으로 사용하라. 교사들이 아동들에게 “네 부모는 너에게 기도하고 성경 읽으라고 가르치고 강요할 권리가 없다. 너는 너다. 너는 너 자신을 발견해야 한다. 자아실현을 해야 한다”고 가르치게 하라. (현실) : 서양에서는 아이가 7세가 되면 교사가 “너는 부모의 신앙을 따를 것인지 말 것인지 선택할 자유가 있다. 부모는 자기신앙을 네게 강제할 권리가 없다”라고 가르친다. //03. 기독교가정구조 또는 전통적기독교가정구조를 파괴하라. 국가의 핵심적 요소를 가정이라고 할 때 가정을 깨뜨리면 국가를 깨뜨릴 수 있다. 기독교적가정구조의 속박으로부터 사람들을 해방시켜라. <앨리스 앤 베일리가 제시한 구체적인 방법들>. ①.성문란을 조장하라 ②.광고, TV, 신문, 잡지, 영화산업을 이용하여 젊은이들에게 성적쾌락이 인생에 있어서 최고의 즐거움이라고 선전하고 미화시키고 조장하라.<선전전략>. 혼전성교나  난혼을 장려하고 미화하라.  그리고 혼외정사 등 불륜에 대해서도 사람들이 긍지를 느낄 수 있도록 육욕적인 사회분위기를 만들어라. (현실) :  이 같은 전략은 전 세계적으로 엄청난 성공을 거두어 오늘날 광고는 거의 벌거벗은 젊은 여자를 이용한 섹스 모티브로 흐르고 있으며, 모든 매스 미디어 가 섹스 코드를 중심으로 하고 그 경향은 날로 심해져가고 있다. //04. 프리섹스 사회를 만들고 낙태를 합법화하고 낙태하기 쉽게 만들라.  낙태전문병원을 만들라. 학교 안에 간이진료소를 만들라. 사람들이 섹스의 쾌락을 누리려면 그에 따르는 불필요한 두려움에서 해방되어야 한다. 즉, 원치 않는 임신으로 인하여 그들의 섹스가 방해 받지 않아야 한다.   교회의 낙태금지주장은 그들의 권리를 부정하는 것이다. 아이를 가질지 말지에 관해서 선택할 권리는 그들에게 있다. 한 여성이 임신상태를 원하지 않는다면 그녀는 태아를 없앨 자유를 가지는 것이 당연하다. (현실) : 오늘날 낙태는 거의 모든 나라에서 일상화되고 있으며 몇몇 국가에서는 강제 실행되기도 한다. 피임제나 피임약과 함께 낙태는 인구조절의 유력한 수단이 된지 이미 오래다.  //05. 이혼하기 쉽게 만들고 이혼을 합법화하라. 평생결혼의 개념으로부터 사람들을 해방시켜라. 남녀 간의 사랑은 ‘사랑결합(Love Bond)’이라는 신비로운 신체-정신적 연결을 통해 이루어진다. 그것은 마치 난소로부터 발생하는 난자와 같아서 당신이라는 시스템을 경유하면서 당신 안에서 사랑의 호의를 클릭하는데, 세상에는 당신의 그 ‘사랑결합’에 응답할 수 있는 한 사람이 있다. 당신이 그 사람을 만나면 당신 안에 있는 모든 것들이 클릭하게 되며 이때 만나는 그 사람이 바로 당신의 짝이다. 만일 당신이 그 사람을 놓치면 그 사랑결합 사이클이 지나갈 때까지 수년간 결코 행복하지 못할 것이다. 그러므로 당신이 행복하려면 어떤 대가를 지불하더라도 그 사람을 붙들어라. 그가 기혼자라 해도 당신 것으로 만들어라. 짝이 엉뚱한 곳에 있다는 것은 심각한 잘못이다. 그리고 만일 일정기간 함께 살다가 그 사랑이 이미 죽었음을 알게 된다면 당신은 성경적계명의 속박에 얽매이지 말라. 기회는 다시 오지 않는다. 당신에게 필요한 것은 쉽게 이혼하고 재혼할 수 있는 방법과, 이를 통해 또 다른 사랑결합의 생성을 허용하는 것이다. 인생은 즐기라고 있는 것이다.  <2-2. 가정과 교회 · 국가를  무너뜨리는 10가지 전략>로 계속…

  25. – Korean -2-2. 가정과 교회 · 국가를 무너뜨리는 10가지 전략 //06. 동성애를 대체생활방식으로 만들라. 섹스의 쾌락은 인간최고의 즐거움이어서 누구도 이 즐거움에서 제외되어서는 아니 되며, 누구도 그 즐기는 방법에 제약을 받아서는 안 된다. 사람들은 스스로 원해서 선택하는 것이라면 그것이 동성애든지 근친상간이든지 수간이든지 피차 쌍방이 합의하기만 하면 전부 허용해야 한다. (현실) : 동성애와 동성결혼을 이미 여러 선진국들이 합법화하였다(18개국). 이제는 동성애를 하나님 앞에서 가증한 것이라거나 죄라고 말하면 “증오발언”으로 분류되어 불법행위로 체포되어 처벌받고 있다. 한국도 동성애를 합법화하려는 차별금지법을 일부 국회의원들이 발의하여 이를 반대하면 처벌하려고 추진 중이다. //07. 예술의 품격을 떨어뜨려 ‘미친 예술’이 되게 하라. 예술이야말로 문화를 변화시키는 중요한 열쇠이다. 인간의 상상력을 더럽히고 타락시키는 새로운 형태의 예술을 긍정하고 장려하라. 왜냐하면 예술은 인간영혼의 언어로서 자신의 영을 회화, 음악, 드라마 등의 형태로 표현하는 것이기 때문이다. 그러므로 예술을 더럽고 난잡하게 만들면 영혼도 같이 난잡해지며 기독교적가치관은 축출 당하게 된다. //08. 미디어를 활용하여 반기독교적가치관을 선전하고 인간의 사고방식을 바꿔라. 인간의 사고와 태도를 바꾸는데 가장 효과적인 최대의 경로는 매스 미디어이다.  신문, 잡지, 라디오, TV, 영화, 광고, 옥외광고판을 이용하라.  유신론에서 무신론으로 사고방식을 바꿔야 한다. (현실) : 매스 미디어를 통해 음란, 폭력, 기타 세속적인 자료를 널리 퍼뜨리고 광고하는 일에 엄청난 돈이 투입되고 있다. 결혼보다 혼외섹스 장면이  80~90배 더 많이 미디어를 통해 나타나며, 마치 성문란이 인간의 자연스러운 행위인 것처럼 사람들을 세뇌시킨다. TV 드라마로 동성애가 전 국민에게 방영되고 있다. //09. 종교통합운동을 일으키라. 다른 종교들을 장려하여 기독교와 대등하게 하라.  기독교만이 천국에 갈 수 있는 유일한 길이라는 기독교의 주장을 공개적으로 분쇄하라. 그리함으로써 기독교는 격하될 것이고 여타종교들이 신장될 것이다. 기독교와 예수를 격하시키고 다른 종교와 그 교주들을 격상시켜라. 인간이 자신의 미래와 운명을 결정짓는다는 점에서 인간을 중시하는 인본주의사상을 부각시켜라. 자신이 어떤 존재가 되고 싶은지 선택할 권리가 인간에게 있으며 또한 그렇게 되도록 스스로 만들 능력이 있으며 자신의 목적을 결정할 권리를 인간이 가지고 있다고 말해 주라.<뉴에이지 운동>.  //10. 각국정부로 하여금 위의 모든 사항들을 법제화하도록 하고 교회로 하여금 이러한 변화들을 추인하도록 하라.<동성애에 대한 차별금지법을 뜻함>. 교회는 위의 사항들을 추인하도록 그 교리를 변경시켜야 하며, 사람들을 변화에 적응시켜서 이러한 무신론적 인본주의체제 안으로 편입시켜야 한다. 이러한  인간의 의식주와 사상가치가 기독교 아닌 인본주의에 철저히 입각하도록 만들어야 한다. (현실) : 각국 특히 선진국정부들이 성경에 반하는 법률들을 계속해서 제정하고 있으며 교회는 하나님의 말씀을 세상과 타협해가고 있다. 현재 위의 10가지 조항들 다수를 법률로 제정한 국가들이 많다. 이러한 일들은 대다수 사람들이 그 실체를 명확히 인지하지 못하는 가운데 슬그머니 이루어졌다. 마치 찬 물이 든 가마솥의 개구리가 천천히 올라가는 온도변화를 감지하지 못하여 밖으로 뛰쳐나가지 못하고 몸이 서서히 삶겨져서 뒤늦게 발버둥 치다가 죽어 가듯이, 오늘날 많은 이들이 죄악과 부도덕으로 영혼이 서서히 죽어가고 있는데도 자기들의 이 같은 상태를 거의 인식하지도 못하고 있는 형국이다. 이것이 뉴에이지이다.   <<<오늘날 가정과 교회, 국가에서 일어나는 위기의 '숨겨진 실체'(기독일보 장세규 기자 입력 2017. 06. 19.)의 수동연세요양병원 염안섭 원장의 '가정·교회·국가를 무너뜨리는 10가지'와 펌)사탄숭배자 엘리스 베일리의 가정, 교회, 국가를 무너뜨리는 10가지 전략 (http://paulp.egloos.com/11172311)을 참고하여 재정리 함.>>>***@@@ <<<지금 자유대한민국은 분별력이 없는 개돼지들이 우글거리는 거대한 가축장이 되어가고 있다>>> @@@

  31. Any person who approves of open borders, and could careless about American citizens including themselves are globalists, fighting for the new world order to come in. Thank God, He has mercy on this great nation because of the prayers of those who can discern what was about to happen. The plans of the enemy to finish off America and other countries have been brought to an abrupt halt. God has given us a reprieve so we can use this time to reach more of those who have lost hope. God is using President Trump to restore everything that has been stolen from America.The book, "The Killing of Uncle Sam" exposes everything corrupt, beginning with a brainstorming session from Cecil John Rhodes on June 2, 1877. His purpose was to bring the entire uncivilized world under British rule. The plans of the globalists have been set back for several years!!! This is why we see so many hyped, crazy, vicious comments, and demonizing of the President to get him out of office as quickly as possible.God has shut the plans of the globalists down!!!!!

    To my understanding, U.S. has no way of stopping Chinese steel and aluminium pouring to U.S. without increasing tariffs to Canada and Mexico. Why???

    Chinese send metal products to Canada and Mexico and then, use NAFTA free trade practices to dump them to the U.S. cheaply. This benefits investor class but not the ordinary American people and American national security. The price we pay for a car is going up and not going down though Chinese dump metal products using NAFTA. We pay doubled the price for the same car that we used to buy 18 years ago. This is true for anything else… We see prices go up and real income goes down as jobs and manufacturing going out of the country.

    If free trade is the norm, let all parties have open tariffs. That's what Trump proposes…We have different specialties and let the market forces decide trade balances. However, it doesn't work; and very stupid if so called trade agreements post 270% tax to U.S. and expect zero taxation reciprocally. President Trump needs free and fair trade with reciprocity.

    Any nation can huff and puff but U.S. would ultimately win as they are still the largest market. Trump use that common sense and he would navigate interim hiccups through other means such as petroleum, currency and interest rates… that guy knows playing multi dimensional Chess 🙂 …

    Trump wants to give life to inner cities where many low income and black workers lost their jobs due to metal and coal plants closure during past two decades.

    On the other hand, U.S. almost lost all technology infrastructure related to metal manufacturing and if a war between U.S. and China happens someday; there's a huge risk of a shortage of engineering infrastructure and skilled labor in metal industry and the U.S. will have to depend on our possible future enemies for metal supply. That's why it is a security threat and it is multi-dimensional; ranging from immigration, technology, financial, information, currency and so on…

    President Trump sees long range and applying correctional strategies when U.S. economy is strong. No leader can work on tariffs with energy and metals when the economy is weak but do it when all goes well before it is too late.

    When metal industry starts up… feeding industries starting from coal prospers and all of these are inter related…

    Go Trump! Make America Great Again!

  39. Does anyone understand why Theodore Roosevelt put a stop to strip mining and clear-cutting of natural forests in America? All this talk of mining raw materials safely is bull shit. Can't be done. It doesn't matter what machines are provided to keep polution out of lakes and streams, It is how much rain and flooding mother nature dicides to dish out.
    No matter where you mine there are small underground streams and springs, all up in them there hills and that is what will fill with this mining refuse and enter the lakes and streams, not to mention that we are already having problems with Coyotes and bear and deer all across America, but this will also distroy the natural nesting grounds of birds and smaller land creatures. That is what the most intellegent Theodore Roosevelt forseen and put a stop to strip mining to start with before it was to late to save what was left.. Now with Trump signing this protection away, it won't be long till we have truly distroyed our selves… Mark my word.

  40. I hope everyone knows that when Trump signed the protection of our natural forests away… It is up for grabs. Anyone wanting to buy with the highest bid will be the one that will get it. You think Bill Cllnton made a boo boo with the free trade agreement, you ain't seen nothing yet.

You will be MY President at least for the next 6 years, see if you can get a third term. I’ll vote for you as long as you are willing.

  46. I voted for Obama the first Time because he promised transparency. Psshhh, transparency?!? NOT!!
    You Mr. President are giving far more transparency than any thing Obama ever promised us. Thank You President Trump for NOT being a politician!! Thank you for not being Muslim!! Wouldn’t have voted for a Muslim to start with. Thank you for keeping the Bad Guys out of MY country. Thank You for transparency. And most of all, THANK YOU FOR BEING MY PRESIDENT!!!
