News conference by @POTUS underway.
“Last night the Republican Party defied history,” begins @POTUS.
Without his #MAGA rallies there might have been a blue wave, asserts @POTUS.
At news conference @POTUS names those of the @GOP who lost and didn’t “want to have any embrace” with him. #Midterms2018
“I give her a lot of credit. She works very hard,” says @POTUS of @NancyPelosi.
“They can play that game but we can play it better,” says @POTUS of @TheDemocrats and threatened investigations, mentioning “leaks of classified information.”
“If they’re doing that” then he and @GOP won’t cooperate on legislation with @TheDemocrats, warns @POTUS.
“It really could be a beautiful bipartisan situation,” says @POTUS.
“I think we have a very good chance” of bipartisanship, predicts @POTUS.
“I’d rather answer that at a little bit different time,” replies @POTUS when asked about job security for @jeffsessions and Deputy AG Rosenstein.
Asked about releasing his personal tax returns, @POTUS insists he’s still under IRS audit.
“I consider it to be an invasion,” says @POTUS of the migrant caravans, responding to @Acosta question.
“That’s enough,” @POTUS says to @Acosta three times and calls him “a really terrible person” and has the microphone taken away from him, orders him to sit down and says “when you report fake news you’re an enemy of the people.”
“Sit down” @POTUS says to @PeterAlexander and then takes a follow-up question from him.
“I could have ended it anytime I wanted and didn’t,” says @POTUS of Mueller investigation. “I think it’s very bad for our country and a shame.”
“They should look at the other side also.”
“Sit down. I didn’t call on you,” @POTUS says to @AprilDRyan. “Such a hostile media.” (She tried to ask about “voter suppression.”)
“I don’t understand what you’re saying,” @POTUS replies to a reporter with an accent.
“I think people like me,” @POTUS says the result off the #Midterms2018 demonstrate.
“Mike, will you be my running mate?” says @POTUS. “The answer is yes” he says after the @VP assents.
“We’re going to make a full report” on whether any evidence if #China and #Russia meddled in #Midterms2018.
“That was President Obama’s regime” which allowed #Russia to take #Crimea, says @POTUS.
#Midterms2018 was close to a total victory for the @GOP (despite losing the House), claims @POTUS.
On his promised 10% tax cut for the middle class, @POTUS says he’d still love to see it but doesn’t have the votes right now.
Despite Kremlin saying he’ll lunch with Putin on Sunday @POTUS says he doesn’t think anything one-on-one is scheduled.
“People leave,” replies @POTUS when asked about pending staff changes. “We have many people lined up for every single postion.”
“If I make a mistake, cover it but cover it fairly,” @POTUS says to reporters, again insisting he isn’t getting adequate media coverage for his successes.
“God plays a big factor in my life,” replies @POTUS to a question.
“Say hello to Shinzo,” @POTUS tells a Japanese reporter.
“There’s no rush whatsoever” to conclude a denuclearization pact with the #DPRK. “Sometime in early next year” he’ll meet Kim Jong Un again.
“We want to see it heal,” @POTUS says of the bitter division in the US.
“I think I am a great moral leader.”
“I came in here as a nice person” and was confronted by hostile reporters “jumping out of their seats,” says @POTUS.
“This was a great victory for us,” says @POTUS of the #Midterms2018.
“That’s such a racist question,” when asked by @Yamiche of his use of the term ‘nationalist’ and its perceived connection to white nationalists.
“I retired him. I’m very proud of it. I did the country a great favor,” says @POTUS of @JeffFlake (in answer to a question from @fran_chambers.)
“I’ve never used a racist remark,” declares @POTUS and then shuts down the @YahooNews reporter asking the question, who cited claims from several people including @MichaelCohen212.
Asked about access to polls, @POTUS replies “I thought it was very efficient.” #Midterms2018
“We’re looking at it very seriously,” replies @POTUS on whether he’ll sign exec order on birthright citizenship.
“I believe all hate is a problem,” says @POTUS.
“The people of our country are very happy with the job that I’m doing,” says @POTUS.
And that’s it after an hour and 26 minutes.
During the long news conference word came that @jontester had fended off a challenge from @MattForMontana of the @GOP. #Midterms2018 #Montana
