Trump says walls got a bad rep because other walls were less attractive than his are: "It was crazy what they were putting up. In fact, I happen to think that the walls they were building were so unattractive and so ugly that walls got bad names. OK? If that means anything."
Trump with a novel use of "lame duck": "We have a chance to really make a deal, a real deal with China. We've never been in this position before. We've always been the - the lame duck. And we're not the lame duck anymore. We've gone up tremendously in value as a country."
Trump: "I could live receiving billions and billions of dollars a month from China [U.S. importers pay the tariffs]. China never gave us 10 cents [there were tariffs on China before, including high-profile tariffs imposed by Obama]."
Trump says he's generally not inclined to show flexibility on the March 1 deadline with China, but if they're getting close to a "real deal," he could let it slide for "a little while."
Here is Trump's proposal for a parade or non-parade:
Trump: "Socialism does not work too well. And we don't want that as part of our country and as part of our heritage. We just can't have it. Everything would come to an end and rapidly and then all of a sudden you'd see things happening and you'd say 'What's going on.'"
South Korea has agreed to pay the US $924 million per year for the US troop presence there, up from $830 million this year. Trump said again today, "They agreed to pay yesterday $500 million more toward their defence."
