The options are you looking at to get humanitarian assistance to venison yeah? I had a very good talk with president putin, probably over an hour, and we talked about many things. Venezuela was one of the topics and he is not looking at all to get involved in venezuela other than he'd like to see something positive happened for venezuela and i feel the same way. We want to get some humanitarian ai ...
right now. People are starving, they have no water, they have no food. This is mr. prime minister, one of the richest countries in the world 20 years ago, and now it's they don't have food and they don't have water for their people, so wewant to help on a humanitarian basis, and i thought it was a very positive conversation. I had with president putin on venezuela we're talking about a nuclear agreement where we make less and they make less, and maybe even will we get rid of some of the tremendous firepower that we have right now we're spending billions of dollars on nuclear weapons numbers like We'Ve never spent before we need that, but and they are also - and china is frankly also - we discussed the possibility of a three-way deal instead of a two-way deal and china i've already spoken to them. They very much would like to be a part of that deal. In fact, during the trade talkswe started talking about that, they were excited about that, maybe even more excited than about trade, but they felt very strongly about it. So i think we're gon na probably start up something very shortly between russia and ourselves and maybe just start off, and i think china will be headed down. The road we'll be talking about non-proliferation, we'll be talking about a nuclear deal of some kind and i think it'll be a very comprehensive one meddling issues that came up in the mullah report with mr. today we discussed that he actually sort of smiled when he said Something to the effect that it started off as a mountain and it ended up being a mouse buthe knew that because he knew there was no collusion whatsoever.

So pretty much that's what it was. Excuse me, i'm talking, i'm answering this question. You are very rude, so we had a good conversation about many different things. Okay, we didn't discuss that really didn't discuss it. We discussed five or six things. We also. We went into great detail on various things, especially, i would say, the nuclear, especially maybe venezuela, we talked about north korea at great length and pretty much that's. It also discussed trade. We intend to do a lot of trade with russia. We do some right now. It'S up a little bit but he'd like to do trade and we'd like todo trade and getting along with russia and china. Getting along with all of them is a very good thing, not a bad thing.

It'S a good thing. It'S a positive thing getting along with other countries, including your country, by the way, but getting along with countries is a good thing and we want to have good relationships with every country. I don't know that's up to our attorney general, who i think has done a fantastic job. Yeah go ahead. Yes, please well! I'D like to. I know people from slovakia and they're incredible people. I would love to it's a beautiful country and it's doing very well. It'S doing very well yeah yeah, please! Well! The tariffshave been a necessary thing for me to do, because in the case of the european union, they have not treated us right, we're losing 181 billion dollars a year. We happen for many years and the european union has not treated us properly, but we'll see what happens with regard to tariffs on cars with the european union, we haven't made a decision on this it'll be discussed next week say it again say it again. Well, i think i have a very good relationship with some of the press and unfortunately, some of the press doesn't cover me accurately. In fact, they go out of their way to cover me inaccurately. So i don't think that's a freepress.

I think that's a dishonest press and i want to see a free press. I mean today i was happy to see on the front page of the new york times for the first time where they were talking about spying and they were talking about spying on my campaign. That'S a big difference between the way they've been covering, but that's a big story. That'S absurd, bigger than watergate as far as i'm concerned. So i want to see freedom of the press and i get treated fairly by some press, but i get treated very unfairly by other press and, frankly, i think that's very dishonest. And i don't consider that when you have stories that arepurposely written badly in many cases very much on purpose, i mean you look at it. That'S not free press, that's the opposite of free press that'll all be determined over the next week or so. But you know i will say this: there's been no president in history that has given what i've given in terms of looking at just a total witch hunt. There i call it the russian hoax. It turned out to be no collusion, no obstruction. It was a total hoax and yet i was transparent. We gave one point four million documents we gave hundreds of p.

Well, i let him interview the lawyer, the white house lawyer for 30 hours, think of that30 hours. I let him interview other people. I didn't have to let him interview anybody. I didn't have to give any documents. I was totally transparent because i knew i did nothing wrong. It turned out. I did nothing wrong, no collusion with russia, think of it 35 million dollars they spent they wasted over a period of two years, no collusion no obstruction. Thank you all very much. I appreciate.
