I discussed ways to enhance our cooperation in the fight against Terror that also has to do with border security I want to thank the Italian people for Italy’s contributions to counter-terrorism and

with that I just want to again thank you very much for coming to the White House my great honor thank you good afternoon for this world Hospitality only 2 months after the formation of my government I think I take it as a sign of a special the special attention to Eataly it to me as well. I forgive me but I don’t want to renounce the privilege of speaking in my wonderful language now oh I would like to families and all the members of the families of fruit to the victims of the fires that took place recently in California I’d also like to say a very very affectionate the very long line it goes way back and today we have strengthened it even more and I’m extremely happy about this and with this very fruitful encounter here in the United in the other White House we have made another step ahead in order to intensify our cooperation are work together to make it even more adequate a visa fee of the geopolitical economics situation in the world from June 1st if there’s another element that brings us even closer the United States and Italy my government and the Trump Administration are both governments that represent change they were chose and by citizens in order to change the status quo and to improve their life conditions there’s so many things that bring us together that unify us and Italy as in the United States we are doing what we had promised during the Electoral campaign and we are working in order to give answers to the expectations of our citizens so that we won’t disappoint them and we don’t betray armende in Italy in the United States we are proving that change is possible Donald and I have concentrated on a number of topics and we both have agreed upon and reach the following results which in part were already I mentioned today we will have made a great Step Ahead we will start working in Italy it’s a directorship booth as at work in the Mediterranean Italy and the United States I would say that we are almost twins countries in which Italy is becoming a reference point in Europe and a privileged interlocutor for the United States for the main threats and challenges that we have before us terrorism after all the crises that we see in the Mediterranean and in particular in regards to Libya secondly the American Administration also recognizes that Italy has a leadership role as a promoter country that will lead to the stabilization of Libya and of course this was a great respect for the lid population with the United States we will be working in order to reach these results and we will decide what needs to be done in view of this result I am truly thankful to you Donald for your support thirdly in terms of immigration I also describe the president Trump the Innovative approach that Italy has put forth and the European union now has a response ability do not leave the weight of the management of immigration on the shoulders of the countries of first arrival like Italy is and as you heard a president Trump say we appreciate this country ocean which is provided by the Italian government which is providing food good result we are talking about an approach to multi-level approach in order to try to resolve the phenomenon of immigration not because an emergency bad because this is a structural approach I want to underline this is in line with the position of President Trump which goes from the respect and dignity of people to make sure that fundamental rights are protected and it wants to make sure that these rights are trampled over because these people are the hands of criminal bath I also want to underline that the world today more of the exchange of human beings is going to be celebrated I also told president Trump that I’m very satisfied for the understanding that was reached very recently between ourselves and the price at the European commission junker I believe that this understanding is fundamental and that we start we have to work upon it immediately bringing our efforts together to make sure that European American Italian citizens I receive the benefits of a more Equitable trade relationship which is completely reciprocal and once again as far as Russia is concerned you know that Italy is favorable to a dialogue with Russia but Italy also considers that the dialogue between the United States and Russia is fundamental so that we couldn’t have a positive results in a more global Spectre the for stability and security purposes in terms of energy security president Trump and I also found ourselves in agreement with the need to make sure that there is a greater diversification for the sources of energy and to make sure that the roots the energy roots are Diversified as well and finally I personally am sure that we can increase and improve the relationship with the United States at all levels and in particular in the in the space and Aerospace the field we also already have a great partnership between of the attack space agency another so we hope that Aerospace will bring together American Technology Italian technology so that we can launch new aircraft that cross the atmosphere and will be able to bring the United States and Italy and together in an hour and a half this is a project that I’d like to speak in detail with the American Administration I thank you for your attention maybe a bigger place Steger concetti IQ daily color thank you mr. president to follow up on what you were saying shut down sir are you saying that you would be willing to shut the government down in September if it does not fully fund 25 billion dollars worth of your border wall and also delivered all of the immigration priorities that you listed in your Tweet or are you leaving soon room for negotiation there but this is been many years this isn’t just Trump Administration where new is been many years even decades we have immigration laws we have border security we have all sorts of things going on that are it’s disgraceful we are doing a phenomenal job with setting records but we have laws that don’t work so we’re working around those laws and it’s unfortunate I have to take my head off to the Border trolls for the law enforcement to ice which really has been maligned by the Democrats the job they do they go into these MS13 nests bad bad people killers in many cases and they go in their fearless and they do an incredible job and they get them out they they go to jail if they get out of the country so I want to just take my hat off the ice in the brave people that have really been maligned by the Democrats we need water security without a border as this gentleman can tell you also cuz the Prime Minister really was it was a very big factor in his win at other peoples within Italy but it was a big factor in my went we need border security borders includes the wall But it includes many other things we have to end the lottery we have to end the chain the chain is like a disaster you bring one person in the end up with 32 people we have to end these horrible catch and relief released principles where you catch somebody you take their name and you release them you don’t even know who they are and then they’re supposed to come back to a court case where they want us to hire thousands of judges the whole thing is ridiculous and we have to change our laws and we do that through Congress so I would certainly be willing to close it down to get it done as you know we are already improving things in various bills including going to be taking care of the military we always put the military and law enforcement very high but I would be certainly willing to consider a shutdown if we don’t get proper border security thank you please is the 25 billion dollars to red line for you unlike President Obama I just went great border security mr. prime minister here in the United States stat the president’s appearance at the G7 and NATO damage our relationship with those institutions as a member of both of those institutions what is your assessment of the president’s appearance at both see I love you set the oven and Night Owl at night oh we had fruitful exchange of views and opinions and of positions I think that Physicians and stances which are expressed with Clarity and provide a contribution to review well established positions are more than welcome there is a fruitful exchange we had a plutonic change both of the G7 Summit and Mater salmon in different Frameworks Summit to we agreed on the need for reform in the W2 out of the System of the Down it’s a year older sister Matt you can understand that applying those same rules after yes that with the Privileges are granted when I mention country clearly means having a system which is not well-functioning and thought well rational nature geoscience taken by President Trump which I personally share fairly Express the position of the need to rebalance the expenditure states which proportionate these are absolutely reasonable positions and stances and I personally take them into great account and I will be personally the carrier the message and I’ll try and make the address understand this position says what we must negotiate United States to find out the balance in the interest of Italian citizens but I do want to thank you for what you just said because it’s been very unfair to the United States with a very good G7 meeting that’s where Giuseppe and I became friends I think we were probably more closely aligned than anybody else in the room but in every respect I would say it was very good and nato in particular I went to Nato and NATO was essentially going out of business because people weren’t paying and it was going down down down you just have to look at the line I came along last year and in a fairly nice town I said you got to pay and I paid 40 for a billion dollars more and this year I said it in a little bit stronger tone and they’re paying hundreds of billions of dollars more over the years and NATO will be strong again and if you speak to secretary-general stoltenberg I think he’s the biggest fan of trump because he said we couldn’t collect money until president Trump came along and he said last year we collect 44 billion dollars and this year the money is pouring in but it’s like the prime minister’s that we really talk about imbalance we were treated very unfairly the United States was treated very very unfairly because we’re children anywhere from 70 to 90% of the cost of native that’s not fair it’s not fair especially when you take Germany and Germany’s paying 1% a little more than 1% and they’re buying and paying tremendous amounts of money to Russia so we’re supposed to protect countries from Russia but they are paying Russia billions and billions of dollars for the energy not good not a good situation and I so the bottom line is the NATO countries are now paying a lot more money and there’s become a lot stronger because of it and I appreciate your answer thank you please also may I add something I’m saying that as a person has a great you just speeding does a lawyer you’ll have a president who has a strong supporter and the advocate of the interests of the American people American country is a great day but she ate her and I’m told Maria Luisa Rosie Hawkins from Addison wants to ask a question? Italian economy under performs regularly in the US economy what do you think would reunite the Italian economy and what role do you think the EU should play on it and president what do you think president Trump for me that would work and Italy as well yeah but he conomic development in addition to borders Economic Development you need borders also but you have a man that’s going to do a terrific job have no doubt about it at all he knows how to sell he knows how to promote really agree product because they make among the greatest products I won’t mention their names but they are great I have some of them and Italy makes great product and I think it’s going to do very well economically and we’re there to help we have had record I’ve been here for a little more than a year-and-a-half and we’ve had record numbers we’ve had record we had numbers that nobody believed possible especially if you look at one particular fact that was not reported very much a trade deficit 52 billion dollar reduction in the trade deficit for the border and I think probably sleeping action treasure is here and Mike Pompeo I think nobody would have thought that would be possible so quickly 52 billion dollar reduction in the trade deficit for the quarter I think that Italy is going to be able to do the same thing slightly different numbers but the same thing what role do you think the European Union should play in their readmission of and we got along very well very well I think they’re going to treat us very fairly and we’re going to treat them fairly but as you know it’s been a one-way street that European Union has totally taken advantage of the United States we can’t let that happen not fair to the United States and by the way Italy has a 31 billion dollar Surplus with the United States meeting we have a 31 billion dollar trade deficit with Italy and we discussed that it will work something going to work something out okay thank you gross figures of the American economy we discussed that before with Domino’s somehow these are systems which cannot be compared because their magnitudes very different but the same spell ambitious at the same time as the government leader I’m ambitious for my economy to do a lot much more than what was done in the past we are preparing is here so structural reforms which we will be submitting to the attention of our European partners that too I do not want the tax reform to be set aside it was a leverage in this country for economic growth and Jenny represent constructed represents a laboratory, gross about working also on streamlining and simplifying right type Administration regulations will try to eliminate some Pockets we are trying to speed up the Civil trials are the procedures that the proceedings are all sectors that together with the citizenship income which was supposed people lose her job to find a new one with all these are all the reforms that we considered to be a positive Elementor to represent an economic liability for our country which can then try and reach the grocer we’ve done obviously the massive tax cuts but maybe equal to would be the tremendous Cuts in regulation and I know it really well and they have a lot of Regulation and I have no doubt that the Minister Giuseppe will be working very hard on that but I think Giuseppe I can say from our standpoint one of the most important things we did was cutting massively these horrible regulations and I believe so strongly in the environment I want the cleanest air that play is water the cleanest everything the best everything but you had 10 regulations for every point in some cases it was ridiculous it would take many years to get a highway or Road approved we have that way down we have it down to two years and it’ll hopefully be down to one enemy rejected but at least it’s going to go quickly so we want regulation but it’s got to be cut to a minimum and do the trick and I think that Italy will follow suit I know they look at it very strong and they’re going to follow okay thank you thank you very much Roberta rampton of Reuters please Roberta thank you book a bit about Iran today and your discussions and I’m wondering if you could tell us what you think around needs to do to reduce some of the tension and you’ve met with the leaders of North Korea and Russia are you prepared also are you willing to meet with president to Ani and under what conditions and have there been any preliminary discussions about something like that better than anybody can say it speaking to other people only when you’re talking about potentials of war and death and famine and lots of other things you meet there’s nothing wrong with meeting we met as you know with chairman Kim and you haven’t had a missile fired off at 9 months we got our prisoners back so many things have happened so positive but meeting with people I had a great meeting in my opinion of course the fake news didn’t cover it that way but had a great meeting with President Putin of Russia I think was a great meeting in terms of the future in terms of safety and economic development and protecting Israel and protecting everybody I thought it was a great meeting great meeting with NATO I just explained it a hundreds of billions of dollars more money will be paid into NATO the coffers of NATO and much already has so I believe in meeting I would certainly meet with her and if they wanted to meet I don’t know that they’re ready yet they’re having a hard time right now but I ended the around the other was a ridiculous I do believe that they will probably end up wanting to meet and I’m ready to meet anytime they want to and I don’t do that from strength or from weakness I think it’s inappropriate thing to do if we could work something out that’s meaningful not the waist of paper that the other deal was I would certainly be willing to make do you have preconditions for that meeting good for them good for us and good for the world no preconditions if they wanted me to tell me prime minister but stay with the need to stabilize Olivia I wanted to ask if you and the president discussed working together on energy production in Libya in some way did you discuss oil production in Libya do you see a way for the United States become involved there tops with Italy’s help we discussed the problem of stabilizing Libya obviously off the security to be guaranteed for the whole of the area you see it’s not only a problem of the migration routes of the migration routes from Africa concentrate in the Libyan the area but it’s also the problem of security in general because I threw the migration routes territory we didn’t discuss in details other problems certainly it is Our intention to respect they leave in population we’re not driven by economic interest we’re not driven by the problem of energy Supply interest and from this point of view I can announce I’m going to organize in agreement with the president Trump I’m going to organize a conference on Libya we would like to deal and discuss all of the issues relating to the Libyan people protagonist in the whole lot of the Mediterranean now we are going to discuss economic aspects Auto social aspects of civil rights the problem of constitutional process of issuing and passing closest to go to a neighbor Libya and particular to get to democratic elections in a condition of the atmosphere stability I’m told that they don’t bother from stomp Alice Tampa wants to ask a question thank you I have a question to president Trump 3 pending issues on the table with one of them is sanctions are to Russia Italy the two main parties and Italy said that they want to live to the sanctions on Russia what’s the official position by the government government is asking for these actions to be kept gas pipeline at the American Department Officer to continue with the work why there are some ambiguous positions in Italy relation this project and the F-35 program what is Italy going to do will Italy confirm the program I’m going to answer in relation to a sanction on Russia I’m going to repeat what I said before because I’m already taken government is not changing and disrespected we are open to dialogue with Russia we do believe that Russia is plays a fundamental role in international geopolitical I was thinking that Russia can be kept out of President stop Trump said if we want to solve problems we cannot choose the counterparts to deal with we must accept and seat at the table with those who are pacifically is concerned from the agreement , I disconnected to the implementation of the means cracked pavement so it is clear that it is Unthinkable today to left overnight however the position of my cabinet has been stated that straight away is it to make sure that these system of Sanchez doesn’t affected the civilized society doesn’t affect the economy of the small and medium-sized Enterprises in Russia Italy from this part of your hazard tradition of intensity relations with Russia in this respect so you know that to stress once again with finals Bateman sanctions against Russia or not and cannot represent an end second issue Transit reotic pipeline and I reported to him that my government is fully aware of the fact that this is strategic work in terms of energy Supply to Italy and to the south of Europe on the Mediterranean area we are perfectly aware of that fact that this can provide a contribution also in the renewal of the energy system and the elimination of cold which is part of a program at the same time broccoli and told president come from that there are some uncertainties I buy local communities and face that directly and not trying to avoid them at once back to Italy as soon as possible I will discuss the issue with the comfort of ministers and I will go and meet the local mayor’s the local trying to find a solution which will take into account the concerns of local communities as far as the third party just concerned at 35 as you know do you know this is a program which was decided in Twilight 2002 that the agreement was signed in 2002 so it’s a great big terms of talking about needs for defense and security as a government we are Tom Sibley evaluating this a file as you know it is already a process of odor to being issued that which is taking place and these orders are issued not yet because the work is ready complex or we will continue to follow this file and will make all the necessary choices in a very cautious way in view of the needs of defensive security Administration on Russia will remain as is so mr. prime minister I hope you going to be able to do that competing Pipeline and we are already talking to the European Union about building anywhere from 9 to 11:40 which they will pay for it so that we can ship G over to various parts of Europe and that will be more competition but these sanctions on Russia will remain as is okay thank you very much everybody thank you thank you that was President Donald Trump taking a couple of questions pastor of Italy some news to get to hear on a Monday on ABC News political director Rick lines on your by Justin Fishel Serena Marshall we got Tara palmeri joining us as well from the White House and a bunch of headlines from over the weekend into today the president talking to about the government shutdown about Robert Mueller with the Paul manafort while about to begin to maneuvering around the Supreme Court nomination if I Cavanaugh as well but the news out of this brief Q&A that we just heard is the president expressing an interest in meeting with the president of Iran yeah that that would be new and really a 180 from what we saw last week just the game last week don’t forget he was basically threatening a huge all-caps Twitter threat about so it’s so it’s a bit of a reversal it’s easier to fit a pattern to be like you you like create this hysteria do a meeting and then claim like everything’s fine now we remain Smith in what it would look like we saw the fire and fury and the Caps locks tweets and then suddenly they sat down together and came to some kind of an agreement the question here though is if he meets with her honey does that actually mean anything because in a raw none like in North Korea the president doesn’t hold a whole lot of power words he actually had the power to negotiate for the country and around you how the Ayatollah Khomeini actually be the one to make those final decision and so that’d be a big question of who the president of meeting with and then whether or not they didn’t want to meet wait for some key decision points after having ripped up the Uranian nuclear deal is this coming as a bit of a surprise that’s open this or do you feel like it’s just up a piece for the president of the generic for anybody surprised to hear him you know he calls it the wrong deal a waste of paper but you know he said many people might say the same thing about the deal that he did in Singapore with Kim Jeong hoon and it’s just really it’s a piece of news right now and it would just mean that we are continuing the dictator tour if we end up in her on course I was only one sheet of paper that North Korea deal there reindeer North Korea deal the president I greeted the political environment should I eat for the pizza it on camera take a listen to what he said it’s part of his opening statement a few minutes ago as far as the border is concerned and personally if we don’t get border security after many many years of talk with in the United States I would have no problem doing a shutdown a merit-based system getting rid of the lottery system chain migration that isn’t simply just here some money for your border wall that is comprehensive immigration reform and that’s something that they try to do in 2013 at the most recently that they passed in the Senate included almost 30 billion dollars for border security at Hoss’s 68 232 it never went anywhere in the house and now suddenly we’re going to try and get comprehensive immigration reform as part of a budget deal in the next month or so it seems unrealistic but it’s some drawing that no problem if he thinks that this is most welcome to wear that that’ll just hurt the numbers in the midterms but if he thinks that this is a rallying cry this juices that kind of energy that the Democrats have now then that’s the strategy he is an unconventional politician and this would be truly on connection given that full 25 billion dollars and closed-end earlier this year when they and I think we’ve got John Carl joining us from that room with the president just wrapped up and John what’s your take on the likelihood of a government shutdown I know you were talking about this event on GMA we’ve heard it before from the president any reason to take this more seriously I don’t think so it’ll be a government shutdown before the election I thought it was notable that the president in his tweet and also again here today I did not put a time frame on that government shutdown there the Congressional leadership met with the president last week they agreements among themselves a strategy agreement essentially two to push off the fight over wall funding until after the election I don’t see any indication from what the president said here today or from what he said in his tweet that that necessarily has changed I mean we’ll have to see he was asked directly if he was saying that he would shut the government down before the election and he did not answer that popping in the president’s Twitter feed in the last couple of days he is fired up on the Robert Mueller front a whole series of tweets about the witch hunts of the illegal he calls it is legal and illegal scam of a Witch Hunt the Mueller probe Bonnie the president’s attorney was out this morning and I want to play this and get your reaction to it John because I left a lot of people confused about the timeline the sequence of events will take a look at vertically on it Rudy Giuliani president Trump’s attorney former New York City so John Carlyle did a bit of a bit of a shift in the explanation from Rudy Giuliani on this whole collusion Frontier is also suggesting that there may have been another meeting to discuss that the Trump Tower meeting to discuss what the information that they thought they get for the Russians it seems like picking up lot that they’re trying to simplify yeah he sure does and I don’t think the president’s talking points I think you’ll agree have been perfectly consistent on this I don’t know if you heard him say that there is no collusion president not the collusions not a crime there’s no collusion but obviously there were a lot of questions here to ask you how do you know joint press conference the president has not answered questions and sometime I be there been precious few White House briefings by the press secretary and you had all these developments related to the special counsel the president argument this is a rigged witch-hunt Escalade an argument saying that smaller himself is conflicted lots of questions about that what is the average what is he talking about lots of questions about Michael Cohen and yet not a single one of those questions was asked her at the press conference the president occupied by all of this it does seem like this is a very big week with Paul manafort on trial because you say you calling illegal witch-hunts can whatever you want back to Joseph they don’t even hear the word collusion during this hearing of it will be really interesting cuz we’ll get a full layout of his finances will have more than 35 Witnesses mother’s going to call five of those getting immunity so we’ll definitely get some kind of inside look at this man was chosen as the president’s campaign manager who did run the the 2016 which has gotten so much attention now that Colin says that Trump knew about that meeting ahead of time which is his latest activation which is obviously one thinks I got Trump so irritated this weekend and we saw just said that unleash those tweets Rudy Giuliani over the weekend on this Michael Cohen Affair they’re quite fired up over over Cohen we’ve seen the White House aides and including Rudy Giuliani go to war with Michael Cohen once one of the president’s closest confidant honorable man and lawyer those were the words from Rudy Giuliani to George Stephanopoulos and now he’s calling him a liar and suggesting that the tape that he handed over to prosecutors those 12 tape we’re doctors he said that is Trump’s legal team actually hired expert examine the tapes to see why it appears that certain portions were taken out of it I mean if you listen to it takes it’s very clear that it cuts off right at the end right in the middle of when they’re talking about how to pay off this a Playboy bunny will let is an affair with with Trump’s but you know it’s really incredible he told me that they have ended their joints defense agreement and they’re not sharing information and that means that Cohen no longer has the financial support of the Trump campaign when dealing with his League you know you can only imagine how their mountain right now considering the southern district of New York is investigating him for fraud and financial crimes another note today awesome news on the Supreme Court Front remember we do have a confirmation battle that is looming the Democrats concerns over. Cavanaugh’s positions on some privacy issues now Rand Paul says that he is on board that helps the Republicans cuz they can’t afford to lose any of them they still only have 50 votes so if they get every single that’s still a big question so they are going to see Brad Kavanagh lose some Democrats in fact that’s happening today he’s meeting with Joe manchin voted to confirm the presidents and this will probably come down at 2 news on Obamacare that’s really we’re going to see this issue come up between whether Mansion can get behind him or not know he did have a vote on Obamacare ruling it was two to one that actually isn’t obamacare’s favor when he was on the federal bench but he kind of Captain South away from making a Distinction on if you supported Obamacare in that ruling now there’s a lot to this currently being had in Texas against United States against the call for pre-existing conditions they’re saying now that you don’t have the Mandate that everybody has have Healthcare there should be no man take that you have to cover pre-existing conditions and the US attorney general Jeff sessions has said we’re not going to defend this law so I trained generals from Democratic states have stepped up to defend the Obamacare law which means going to be in front of the Supreme Court you’re going to see another ACA fight at up there on Capitol Hill and his vote could be the deciding factor which is what really is going to be the determining factor of mansion can get behind capsule come out and say something afterwards we’ll look forward to all of that thanks for being hereThe president and Italian PM deliver remarks at the White House.
