Transcript for Trump holds informal press gaggle on FBI report, North Korea and more
Don't usually it happens this energy I think what we it was a disgrace our thinking goes down as the worst FBI director in history by far this nobody plus. And I think I do wish you tremendous case by Farrakhan. You don't past about I don't know why I think actually if you if you take a look. What he totally exonerated here. Through it physical overcome injury. Completely at 12 and then picked off three totally it senator. If anything you're saying is correct what she did is they tried to pretend it didn't happen. I when he got out there and I would had the greatest news conference history they tried to ten days generation didn't happen now. This generation was incorrect because there's no way they could reject that number of emails in just a few days. What have you remembers what election he went out and he exonerated here. And they'd need to talk about it that was the greatest political mistake yeah I'd win all of that being said captain I want Wisconsin. When Michigan I went states that. You know republic hasn't won him many decades years. She. Didn't do that job and having it be good if it could agree to but the fact the. Little as the president and by all our polity president of Fox News report this week that. I did deputy attorney general rob rose and kind of news here is pushing back and threatening to investigate. The congressional investigators who just want documents do you think that that. Well I hope that's not so are they getting documents and I purposely did you see what I've done week. North Korea had with the State Department Mike campaign coach running so well. It's I have just running so well. I have purposely because of this ridiculous witch hunt. I have said I'm going to stay away from the Justice Department is deliciously did so I wanted to stay away now that does it have to because they don't have to like getting. But I don't like you people decision image of hearings. That I'm doing anything I think that the a report yesterday it may be more important than anything you're totally exonerates me. There was no collusion there was no obstruction. And if you read the report you'll see. Yeah well I'm yours yeah I know what you'll really see. It you'll see bias against me and billions and tens of millions of my always. That is really just. Yeah the end it all doom and yet if you look at the FB. And you what did you pulled the accurate and the real lefty. Those guys love me and I love my. And Mueller are you thinking of how but I think I think that whole investigation. Owens is look. The problem with the smaller investigation is everybody's got massive conflicts. You have Fleischman was that Hillary Clinton's funeral meaning her party that turned into a camera. And that was screaming and crying into Illinois and how can you have people like this so yup I go on the thirteen angry Democrats. Who have. Tremendous animosity and here's the good news I did nothing wrong there was no collusion there was no obstruction. The IG report yesterday went a long way to show that and I think that even collar investigation has been totally discredit. And so. Passionately about the circumstances that lag time I. I don't want your death in the same breath you're defending now can Johnson's human rights records. How can you do your life. Because I don't want to see nuclear weapons destroy unions and rock. Music I don't want to be extradited because number I don't want to see a nuclear weapon. Destroy you and your family I want to have a good relationship with North Korea I want to have a good relationship with many other countries. And what I've done if you remember if you're fair which most of you are right. Shouldn't your fare when and people but we will probably going to war with north Koreans and we. I hear it if we did millions of people would have been killed. Academy Awards the hospital she was 600 that Seoul has when he easily as people thirty miles off the border. You would have had 304050. Million people killed who knows what would have happened. I came in that was what I inherited they should have never heard that you have been so long before it got there. I did agree jet this week. The big news at all human the only thing they sure that I gave up one maverick gets sick he gave us a luncheon and gave up I met. I actually had great chemistry can give us a lot. You haven't had a missile tests didn't sevens and you haven't had a fight you haven't had a nuclear test. Did eight and a half months you haven't had missiles flying outreach opinions. He gave us the remains of a great heroes I have had so many people begging me. Parents and fathers mothers daughters sons. Wherever I went could you please get there remains at my boy back. They're giving them back nobody thought that was possible yeah. Right pilots typically hears all this doing so much for us and now. We're well under way to get denuclearization and the agreement says there will be total denuclearization. Overdue insert foot that. So the only thing. I did was I bet. I got along with a great is buoyed we have a great chemistry again. It's a good thing now yeah. I love its people it is killing I can't speak to that I can only speak to the fact that. We signed an incredible agreement it's great and it's going to be great so total not because now the North Korea can develop and North Korea can become. A great country economically I think can become whatever they want but they won't be nuclear weapons and it will be a big deal yeah. Well yeah offered to halt. The military exercises self that without you little Jessie and his eligibility would do here is look at military I go to war games. I hated it from the day I can I sit why aren't we being 100 screens to work it just might turn the isn't it. They like is it we didn't we pay millions and millions of dollars from plains we'll of this. It's my dad I sit I'd like to hold. Because it's they had to be negotiating in doing it cost us a lot of money saved a lot of money. That's a good thing for so big guy with the united what do you mean it's now one user you wish Americans would soon about it and he's I'm kidding here understands. Now the US homeland you would see it. And bring out the bar yeah. Disagree and feel that way. Yeah. Well look at the battle of the united and former campaign manager under former lawyer down Romeo and legal troubles very well I feel badly about. A lot of because I think a lot of experience and I look at some of them when they go back several years that's kind of put has nothing to do with our campus. But I feel so I think I feel a little bit about it they went back twelve he has to get things that he did twelve years ago. The Oklahoma out of fort works for me for a very short period of time he worked for Ronald Reagan he worked for Bob Dole he worked for John McCain has termed it. He worked for many of the Republicans which he worked for knew what drove 49 days or something. A very short period. I feel badly for some people because they've gone back twelve years to find things about somebody. And I don't think it's right I don't think it's right that they burst into a lawyer's office on a weekend and early in the morning I'd never heard that before. I mean could you imagine if they burst into Barack Obama's lawyer's office it would not be acceptable it would not be acceptable. I mean that's really a terrible thing. Now I feel badly a lot of those people I feel badly for general Flynn he's lewis' helps he's lost his life. And then some people say he lied and some people say he didn't lie and then. Really it turned out maybe he didn't do. But how can you. You do that because. And who has lied boys come because they lied tremendous amount yeah. Bradley is there any consideration at any point of apart and I want to talk about that I want to talk about. Look sir I do want to see people treated fairly.

Grant avenue like a little hotel he's your lawyer. No examples like everybody AG Edwards a lawyer and not when I always liked Michael. Are you he's a good person you and I think he's offered you to wonder what I know you're asking a question and joined in just want to know if you're worried if he's gonna cooperate with federal you know and a creator did nothing wrong got nothing about it and yeah. I shouldn't dictate this statement about don't let you must not talk about it. You know what that means I can tell relevant it's a statement to the New York Times the phony failing new Yorker just. Just waiting to clearly not a statement to a high tribunal judges. Consensus statement.

We now have a very good relationship would North Korea. When I came into this job it looked like war not because of me but because if you remember the sit down with Barack Obama that you want to admit this. He said the biggest problem with the United States has and by far. The most dangerous problem and he said to me that we've ever. Because of its North Korea now that was shortly before it entered office. I have solved that problem that we're getting it. Memorialize. Adults it's my problem is largely self and part of the reason is we signed a very good. Our legal argument and doctors and more importantly in the document.
