Trump, British PM Boris Johnson meet at the United Nations


LISTEN IN.>>President Trump: THANK YOU VERY MUCH, EVERYONE. IT’S GOOD TO BE WITH MY FRIEND, BORIS JOHNSON. JUST GOT A POSITION THAT IS HAVING A VERY GOOD TIME WITH. IS IT TOUGHER OR EASIER? HE SAID, “IT’S WHAT I EXPECTED.” HE’S DOING A FANTASTIC JOB. NOT EASY, BUT DOING A REALLY GOOD JOB. I THINK HE WILL MAKE GREAT PROGRESS, OCTOBER, COME NOVEMBER. GREAT PROGRESS.>>Prime Minister Johnson: OCTOBER. THIS>>President Trump: IS ALSO GOING TO START THE SHOW IN NOVEMBER. BUT IT LOOKS TO ME LIKE HE IS MAKING GOOD PROGRESS. IT’S AN HONOR TO HAVE YOU HERE. WE WILL BE DISCUSSING TRADE, AND WE CAN QUADRUPLE OUR TRADE WITH THE U.K. I THINK WE CAN REALLY DO A BIG JOB. BOB LIGHTHIZER IS HERE, OUR TRADE REPRESENTATIVE. YOU ARE TRADE IS HERE. THEY ARE SCHEDULED TO CONTINUE NEGOTIATIONS. WE COULD HAVE SUBSTANTIALLY MORE TRADE WITH THE U.K. AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO DOING THAT. WE’LL TALK ABOUT OTHER THINGS, ALSO. GREAT TO HAVE YOU BOTH.>>Prime Minister Johnson: THINK AVENUE>>Prime Minister Johnson: THANK YOU VERY MUCH IT’S GREAT TO BE HERE AND WE CAN MAKE A LOT OF PROGRESS QUITE FAST. WE HOPE TO GETTING THERE, REMEMBERING THE NHS IS NOT — EVERYTHING ELSE, THERE’S A HUGE AMOUNT WE CAN DO. I WILL ALSO TALK A BIT ABOUT IRAN AND DO SOME OF THOSE DIFFICULT ISSUES WHERE WE SHARE A COMMON PERSPECTIVE. WE WILL DIAL THINGS DOWN BUT ALSO MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE IN THE GULF DON’T GET THE WRONG IDEA ABOUT WHAT THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH. THAT’S A COMPLICATED ISSUE. THEY’RE HERE TO MAKE PROGRESS THERE, AS WELL.>>President Trump: WE WILL TALK ABOUT MANY THINGS AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO IT. WE WILL START IN JUST A MINUTE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, EVERYBODY. THANK YOU.>>Reporter: MR. JOHNSON, SOME OF YOUR CRITICS ARE SAYING YOU SHOULD RESIGN BECAUSE HE MISLED THE QUEEN WITH REGARD TO SHUTTING PARLIAMENT DOWN. HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO THAT?>>Prime Minister Johnson: AS I SAID EARLIER ON — THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AS I SAID EARLIER ON, LET’S BE ABSOLUTELY CLEAR — WE RESPECT THE JUDICIARY IN OUR COUNTRY. WE RESPECT THE COURTS. I DISAGREE PROFOUNDLY WITH WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY. I THINK IT WAS ENTIRELY RIGHT TO GO AHEAD WITH A PLAN FOR A QUEEN’S SPEECH. WE HAVEN’T HAD A QUEEN’S SPEECH FOR 400 YEARS. WE’VE GOT A DYNAMIC DOMESTIC AGENDA WE NEED TO BE GETTING ON WITH. MORE FLEETS ON THE STREETS, INVESTMENT IN OUR NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE, IMPROVING OUR EDUCATION. WE NEED TO GET ON WITH THAT. FRANKLY, I THINK WE NEED TO GET ON WITH BREXIT. THAT’S THE OVERWHELMING VIEW OF THE BRITISH PEOPLE, WHETHER THEY ARE READY TO LEAVE. THEY WANT THIS THING DONE BY OCTOBER THE 31ST. THAT’S WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO.>>President Trump: IT WAS A VERY NASTY QUESTION FROM A GREAT AMERICAN REPORTER. [LAUGHTER]>>Prime Minister Johnson: WAS NOT AN AMERICAN REPORTER? I THINK HE WAS ASKING A QUESTION, TO BE FAIR, A LOT OF BRITISH REPORTERS WOULD HAVE ASKED. [LAUGHTER]>>President Trump: I KNOW HIM WELL, HE’S NOT GOING ANYWHERE. DON’T WORRY ABOUT HIM. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?>>Reporter: DO YOU THINK HE’S DEALING WITH THE JUDGES?>>President Trump: I THINK HE’S DEALING VERY WELL. I WATCH THEM CLOSELY, HE’S A FRIEND OF MINE. I TEND TO WATCH FRIENDS CLOSER THAN ENEMY. THE ENEMIES, YOU HAVE TO WATCH IN A DIFFERENT WAY. I THINK HE’S DOING WELL, IT’S A COMPLICATED SUSPECT SUBJECT. THEY TOOK A VOTE, AND I HAPPEN TO BE THERE. I MADE A PREDICTION, IVAN DONNA EVEN THAT WAS A LONG TIME AGO. IT TAKES A MAN LIKE THIS TO GET IT DONE. THEY HAVE TO GET IT DONE, OTHERWISE — IT WOULD BE A TERRIBLE THING TO DO IT ANY OTHER WAY. I DON’T SEE ANOTHER VOTE, I DON’T SEE ANYTHING HAPPENING. I THINK IS GOING TO GET IT DONE.>>Reporter: MR. PRESIDENT, WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION WHEN HE HEARD THE U.K. SUPREME COURT DECISION?>>President Trump: I HAD NO REACTION. FOR HIM, IT’S IN THE THIRD DAY AT THE OFFICE. HE’S A PROFESSIONAL. IT’S JUST ANOTHER DAY IN THE OFFICE.>>Prime Minister Johnson: ANOTHER DAY IN PARLIAMENT. [LAUGHTER]>>President Trump: WE HAD, BORIS, THE FIRST COUPLE OF MONTHS I THINK WE WERE 0 FOR 7 WITH THE SUPREME COURT. SINCE THEN, WE WON THE WALL, ASYLUM, SOME OF THE BIGGEST ONES. WE’VE HAD A GREAT STREAK. WE STARTED OFF 0 FOR 7. AS YOU WILL REPORT BACK THE FIRST TIME COMMON YOU WERE SHOCKED THAT WE WON. WE HAVE WON A LOT OF DECISIONS. I’M SURE THAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN TO YOU.>>Prime Minister Johnson: WE ARE NOT COUNTING OUR CHICKENS, WE ARE FULL OF RESPECT, AS I SAY, FOR THE JUSTICE. WE ARE GOING TO PUSH ON AND RESPECT WITH THE COURTS HAVE TO SAY. BUT WE WILL GET ON AND DELIVER BREXIT. I THINK THAT’S WITH THE BRITISH PEOPLE WANT.>>President Trump: IN OTHER WORDS, HE’S BEEN VERY NICE TO THE COURT. HE HAS TOTAL RESPECT FOR THE COURT. REPORT BACK ON A SEPARATE SUBJECT, CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHY AID TO UKRAINE WOULD STOP?>>President Trump: I THINK OTHER COUNTRIES SHOULD BE PAYING, ALSO. WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE O WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE L WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE Y WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE O WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE E WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE P WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE A WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE I WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE G WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE T WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE O WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE U WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE R WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE I WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE E WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES THE ? I’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS A LONG TIME. NOT ONLY WITH RESPECT TO UKRAINE, BUT A LOT OF COUNTRIES. FRANKLY, WHY ISN’T GERMANY — I JUST MET WITH THE CHANCELLOR — WHY ISN’T GERMANY, WHY ISN’T FRANCE? WHY AREN’T THESE COUNTRIES PAYING? WHY ARE WE PAYING ALL THE TIME? NO ONE HAS GIVEN MORE TO UKRAINE. PRESIDENT OBAMA USED TO SEND PILLOWS AND SHEETS. I SEND ANTITANK WEAPONS. A LOT OF THINGS TO UKRAINE. WE THINK IT’S VERY IMPORTANT. BY THE WAY, I DON’T KNOW IF YOU KNOW IT OR NOT, THAT PAYMENT WAS MADE. BUT I WANT TO GET OTHER COUNTRIES. OTHER COUNTRIES SHOULD ALSO PAY. FRANKLY, IT AFFECTS THEM MORE. THERE’S A BARRIER, A WALL BETWEEN RUSSIA AND THE U.K. AND THEY DON’T PAY. WHAT ARE THEY NOT PAYING? WHY IS IT ALWAYS THE UNITED STATES THAT’S PAYING? I MADE THAT LOUD AND CLEAR. I TOLD THAT THE MICK MULVANEY, I TOLD TO A LOT OF PEOPLE. I TOLD HER TO A LOT OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE. I TOLD IT TO MIKE, TWO MIKES. I TOLD TO DECEIVE. I KEEP ASKING THE SAME. I TOLD HER TO WILBUR ROSS. I KEEP ASKING THE SAME QUESTION. WHY IS IT THE UNITED STATES IS ALWAYS PAYING THESE FOREIGN COUNTRIES, AND OTHER FOREIGN COUNTRIES THAT, FRANKLY, ARE MUCH MORE AFFECTED, THEY ARE NOT? I SAY, “ALTHOUGH, LET’S GET OTHER PEOPLE TO PAY.” THE PEOPLE SAID, “PLEASE, CAN BE PAID?” THERE WAS NO QUID PRO QUO. THE LETTER WAS BEAUTIFUL, IT WAS A PERFECT LETTER. UNLIKE BIDEN. BY THE WAY, WHAT HE SAID WAS OVER. ASK HOW HIS SON MADE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM UKRAINE. MADE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM CHINA, EVEN THOUGH HE HAD NO
