“They would like to see me lose an election because they have never been challenged like this,” @POTUS says of #China.
“A lot of money is coming into our coffers” from tariffs on the “dumpers” from #China, according to @POTUS.
“Unfortunately they just raised interest rates,” @POTUS says of the @federalreserve. “I’m not happy about that.”
“The FBI told us they investigated Judge Kavanaugh six times” over the years, says @POTUS in response to @johnrobertsFox, adding there’s nothing to investigate here.
Several Democrats will vote to confirm Kavanaugh, predicts @POTUS.
Lawyer @MichaelAvenatti is “another con artist,” says @POTUS.
A bit of a back and forth with @Acosta who suggests @POTUS take a question from a female reporter next.
“I could pick a woman (for #SCOTUS) and she could have charges made against her from many years ago,” responds @POTUS to @Acosta question.
“I can’t tell you. I have to watch tomorrow,” @POTUS responds when asked if he thinks all three Kavanaugh accusers are liars. “They could be convincing.”
“If he thought he was guilty of something like this, sure” responds @POTUS if there is any chance he could withdraw Kavanaugh nomination.
“I’ve been accused, I believe it was by four or five women, who were paid to make up stories about me,” says @POTUS. “I never met these people.”
“The New York Times did false reporting.”
“A lot of the people here are fake,” adds @POTUS.
“We have evidence. It’ll come out,” says @POTUS of #China election interference.
#China “has respect for Donald Trump’s very, very large (pause) brain.”
“I’m talking to him. We had a good talk,” replies @POTUS when asked if he’ll fire Rosenstein when they meet tomorrow. “I may delay that. But my preference would be to keep him.”
“They’re not going to beat me,” @POTUS says of political enemies, adding potential 2020 opponents “are lightweights.”
“I’ve received two letters from Chairman Kim,” says @POTUS describing the correspondence as “wonderful.”
“If I wasn’t elected you have had a war” on the Korean Peninsula that would have caused the deaths of millions of people, assets @POTUS.
“I don’t want to get into the time game” on #DPRK denuclearization, adds @POTUS.
During their meeting @BarackObama told him he was “very close to going into war” with the #DPRK, @POTUS says at news conference.
“‘Con job’ probably the nicest phrase I’ve ever used,” responds @POTUS to query from @SkyNews on his language about Kavanaugh accusers.
“Women are so angry and I frankly that they like what the Republicans are doing.”
Kurdish reporter asking question.
“The Kurds are great fighters,” responds @POTUS and praising them for helping to defeat #ISIS.
Confirms he rejected meeting at #UNGA with @JustinTrudeau, contending “Canada had treated us very badly” in trade talks. “We’re not getting along with their negotiators.”
“With Canada, it’s very tough.”
And @POTUS calls on another “Mr. Kurd.”
No country has changed so much as #Iran, contends @POTUS, criticizing the #JCPOA as “one of the dumbest deals ever made.”
Iranians can’t buy bread and there’s “rioting in the streets,” says @POTUS. “At some point they’re going to have talk.”
“The failing New York Times. Stand up,” says @POTUS calling on @Yamiche.
“I heard a little rustle. I heard smiles...the fake news said ‘people laughed,” explains @POTUS of the chuckles during his #UNGA speech.
Back to praise now of #SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh and how “women were paid to say bad things about me.”
“In honor of a paper I once loved,” he’ll allow a question from the @nytimes after he calls on @TruNews.
“I’m glad I got it out,” @POTUS says of his “two state solution” for Israelis and Palestinians. “Nobody wanted to say it. It’s a big thing to put it out.”
“You’re doing very well, say ‘thank you Mr. Trump,” @POTUS exclaims to @MarkLandler.
“I think I'll stop at that,” jokes @MarkLandler in response and asks a #China question.
“It all started with the WTO” and US officials who let #China “get away with murder.”
“It’s a very big cultural moment,” @POTUS says of the tension surrounding the Kavanaugh hearings. “Honestly, nobody knows who to believe. ...It’s a con game at the highest level.”
“There’s nothing beyond Supreme Court. This is beyond Supreme Court,” adds @POTUS. “In this case you’re guilty till proven innocent.”
And that’s it after 81 minutes.
