Pence talks potential US response to Iran, NYT article on Justice Kavanaugh


MARIA: WELCOME BACK. OUR TOP STORY THIS HALF HOUR, CHINESE NEGLIGENCE OTHER CHINESE NEGOTGENCE OTHER CHINESE NEGOTIANCE OTHER CHINESE NEGOTIATOE OTHER CHINESE NEGOTIATORSOTHER CHINESE NEGOTIATORS AHER CHINESE NEGOTIATORS ARER CHINESE NEGOTIATORS ARE BACK IN WASHINGTON FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF TRADE DELIBERATIONS. I SPOKE WITH VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE ABOUT WHAT’S DRIVING THE PRESIDENT TO GET THIS DEAL DONE AND DONE RIGHT.>>PRESIDENT TRUMP’S APPROACH FIRST AND FOREMOST IS ABOUT DEFENDING THE AMERICAN ECONOMY AND THE TRUTH IS, WITH $500 BILLION TRADE DEFICIT, THAT’S ABOUT 50% OF OUR OVERALL INTERNATIONAL TRADE DEFICIT, MARIA, AS YOU KNOW. AND WITH INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY THEFT, FORCED TECHNOLOGY TRANSFERS, FOR TOO LONG CHINA HAS TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF THE AMERICAN ECONOMY AND THOSE DAYS ARE OVER UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP. MARIA: I WANT TO SWITCH GEARS AND ASK YOU ABOUT BRETT KAVANAUGH. ONE LAST QUESTION HERE. THIS UPCOMING WEEK WE’LL GET MINISTERS HERE. DO YOU EXPECT THE CHINESE TO EXPLAIN WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE IN ORDER TO DO A DEAL, SINCE THEY’RE THE ONES WHO RENEGED. WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT FROM THESE MINISTERS THIS UPCOMING WEEK?>>LOOK, I THINK WHAT IS HAPPENING TODAY IS DIALOGUE AND THAT WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE WEEKS THAT ARE AHEAD AND WHEN THE PRINCIPALS MEET NEXT WEEK IT WILL CONTINUE AS WELL. I THINK PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS MADE HIS POSITION VERY CLEAR THAT IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT OPENING THE MARKETS, IT’S ALSO ABOUT DEALING WITH WHAT WE CALL STRUCTURAL ISSUES THAT REALLY WAGE WAR ON AMERICAN PRIVATE PROPERTY AND JOBS IN A VERY REAL WAY. WE’VE GOT TO CORRECT THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY THEFT. WE’VE GOT TO END THE FORCED TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER. THOSE ISSUES HAVE TO BE ADDRESSED. BUT LOOK, THE ATMOSPHERE AS I TALK TO OUR TEAM, THE ATMOSPHERE IS GETTING BETTER. CHINA RECENTLY LIFTED TARIFFS ON AMERICAN PORK. MARIA: THEY NEED TO DO IT. THEY’VE GOT 250 MILLION DISEASED PIGS. THEY NEED OUR PORK, RIGHT?>>WE TOOK THAT AS A POSITIVE SIGN OF THEM OPENING THEIR MARKETS TO AGRICULTURAL GOODS. THERE ARE PLANS FOR THEM TO BEGIN BUYING MORE AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS FROM THE UNITED STATES AND THE PRESIDENT RECENTLY DELAYED OUR NEXT ROUND OF TARIFF INCREASES IN RECOGNITION OF THEIR 70th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION. SO THE ATMOSPHERECS ARE IMPROVING BUT I CAN TELL YOU AND I CAN TELL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS GOING TO STAND FIRM IN OUR NEGOTIATIONS WITH CHINA AND DEMAND THAT CHINA OPEN THEIR MARKETS OR WE’LL CONTINUE DOWN THE PATH AND THE ROAD THAT WE’RE ON AND THAT IS FRANKLY USING ACCESS TO THE MOST PROSPEROUS ECONOMY IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD AS A LEVER TO MOVE CHINA AND OTHER COUNTRIES FORWARD. MARIA: LET ME SWITCH GEARS, PARDON ME. ONCE AGAIN, JUSTICE BRETT KAVANAUGH’S CHARACTER IS BEING DEBATED, DESPITE THE FACT THAT THE NEW YORK TIMES LEFT OUT A CRITICAL POINT IN TERMS OF THEIR REPORTING. WHAT’S YOUR REACTION TO WHAT HAS TAKEN PLACE?>>WELL, THE NEW YORK TIMES SHOULD BE ASHAMED. TO PUBLISH A STORY SMEARING JUSTICE BRETT KAVANAUGH AND OMIT THE FACT THAT THE ALLEGED VICTIM HAS NO RECOLLECTION OF THE INCIDENT IS OUTRAGEOUS. IN FACT, I HEARD THAT THEIR NEWS DEPARTMENT WOULDN’T EVEN PUBLISH IT IN THE NEWS SECTION, THEY ACTUALLY PUBLISHED THE STORY IN THEIR OPINIONS SECTION. BUT THAT WAS AN UTTERLY UNACCEPTABLE ACT BY THE NEW YORK TIMES AND THEY’RE RIGHT TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE PUBLICLY FOR IT. MARIA: SHOULD PEOPLE BE FIRED?>>LOOK, THE PRESIDENT HAS SAID THAT AND I AGREE WITH HIM. I THINK ANYONE RESPONSIBLE FOR LEAVING OUT THAT KIND OF A MATERIAL FACT, THAT THE INDIVIDUAL THAT OTHERS ON THE BASIS OF HEARSAY, THE INDIVIDUAL TO WHOM THIS SUPPOSEDLY HAPPENED HAS NO RECOLLECTION OF IT HAPPENING, TO LEAVE THAT OUT OF A STORY ABOUT A SITTING JUSTICE OF THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES IS — IT’S AN ACT OF JOURNALISTIC MALPRACTICE. BUT WHAT’S WORSE IS TO SEE LEADING DEMOCRATS FOR PRESIDENT, DEMOCRATS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT, ACTUALLY ADVOCATING THE IMPEACHMENT OF JUSTICE BRETT KAVANAUGH OVER THESE DISCREDITED ALLEGATIONS. THIS IS — I MEAN, WHAT DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES FOR PRESIDENT ARE DOINGS IS A DISGRACE AND IT’S NOTHING SHORT OF AN ATTACK ON OUR INDEPENDENT JUDICIARY. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MAKES AMERICA TRULY SPECIAL IS THE THREE BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT. WE JUST CELEBRATED CONSTITUTION DAY, 232nd ANNIVERSARY OF THE SIGNING OF THE CONSTITUTION. AN INDEPENDENT GOO YO INDEPENDENT GOO YOUINDEPENDENT GOO YOU HDEPENDENT GOO YOU HAVPENDENT GOO YOU HAVEENDENT GOO YOU HAVE DDENT GOO YOU HAVE DEMNT GOO YOU HAVE DEMOC GOO YOU HAVE DEMOCRAOO YOU HAVE DEMOCRATS WHO ARE SEEKING THE HIGHEST OFFICE IN THE LAND WHO ARE TAKING DISCREDITED ALLEGATIONS AND USING THAT TO CALL FOR THE IMPEACHMENT OF A SITTING MEMBER OF THE SUPREME COURT. I MEAN, IT IS BY THE MEDIA AND BY DEMOCRATS, IT IS AN ACT OF DESPERATION AND I BELIEVE IT’S AN ATTEMPT TO INTIMIDATE JUSTICE KAVANAUGH DURING HIS TENURE ON THE COURT. BUT IT WON’T WORK. AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW THE TRUTH OF IT. JUSTICE BRETT KAVANAUGH IS A GOOD AND DECENT MAN. HIS SERVICE IS A CREDIT TO THE HIGHEST COURT IN THE LAND AND PRESIDENT TRUMP AND I ARE GOING TO STAND WITH HIM. MARIA: THEY WANT TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT TRUMP AS WELL. YOU’VE GOT JERRY NADLER PURCHASE SEWERING THAT RIGHT NOW — PURSUING THAT RIGHT NOW. HOW ARE YOU GOING TO GET ANYTHING DONE WHEN YOU’VE GOT THE OTHER SIDE CONSTANTLY TRYING TO TAKE DOWN THE PRESIDENT AND DO YOU HEAR ANY PLANS FROM ANY OF THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES THAT MAKE SENSE TO YOU THAT YOU COULD SAY, WELLING COULD SAY, WELL,NG COULD SAY, WELL, WE COULD WORK WITH THAT AND MAYBE WE CAN BUILD ON THAT.>>WELL, WE’RE WORKING IN GOOD FAITH ON PASSING THE USMCA AND WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO WORK WITH SPEAKER PELOSI ON THAT. I HEARD ACCOUNTS TODAY SHE’S WAS AS US FROM AS TS FROM AS TRAFROM AS TRAITOM AS TRAITED WITH THE CIRCUS OF THE HEARING THAT TOOK PLACE THIS WEEK AS ANYBODY ELSE. I MEAN, TO HAVE A FORMER CAMPAIGN MANAGER FOR THE PRESIDENT COME IN AND BERATE HIM AFTER ROB HE EARTH AFTER ROBERE EARTH AFTER ROBERT EARTH AFTER ROBERT MARTH AFTER ROBERT MUETH AFTER ROBERT MUELLER ALREADY PRESENTED HIS REPORT, THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT CONCLUDED NO OBSTRUCTION, NO COLLUSION, CASE. MARIA: THIS IS AFTER TWO YEARS.>>HUNDREDS OF INTERVIEWS, FOOL COOPERATION, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOCUMENTS OUR ADMINISTRATION PROVIDED AND THE CONCLUSION BY THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT WAS CLEAR AND YET DEMOCRATS ARE CONTINUING TO ALMOST MINDLESSLY DRAG THIS MATTER ON AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AREN’T HAVING IT. MARIA: MR. VICE PRESIDENT –>>I THINK IT’S ONE OF THE REASONS, MARIA, WHY WE’RE NOT ONLY GOING TO REELECT PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR FOUR MORE YEARS NEXT YEAR BUT I BELIEVE WE’RE GOING TO ELECT A REPUBLICAN MAJORITY BACK TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AND REELECT THE MAJORITY IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE BECAUSE WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF THIS ADMINISTRATION, WITH REPUBLICAN MAJORITY OF CAPITOL HILL, AND HOW WE WERE ABLE TO REVIVE THE ECONOMY, REBUILD OUR MILITARY, AND WITH THE STRONG MAJORITY IN THE SENATE TO THIS DAY, WE’VE SEEN 150 CONSERVATIVES CONFIRMED TO OUR FEDERAL COURTS AT EVERY LEVEL INCLUDING TWO JUSTICES OF THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES, ALL OF WHAT WE WERE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND AMERICA’S STANDING IN THE WORLD. CONTRAST THAT WITH THE TENURE OF DEMOCRATS DURING THE TIME OF THEIR MAJORITY IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. IT’S JUST ONE HEARING AFTER ANOTHER, ONE — MARIA: IT’S ABOUT TAKING THE PRESIDENT DOWN.>>ONE ATTACK OF THIS PRESIDENT AFTER ANOTHER AND I THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE HAD ENOUGH. EVERYWHERE I TRAVEL ACROSS THIS COUNTRY I HEAR ENTHUSIASM FOR THE PROGRESS THAT WE’VE MADE, STRONG SUPPORT FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP AND I CAN’T WAIT TO GET OUT THERE TO CAMPAIGN WITH THIS PRESIDENT FOR OUR RE-ELECTION BUT ALSO TO CAMPAIGN FOR ALL THESE GREAT MEN AND WOMEN RUNNING TO RENEW REPUBLICAN MAJORITY IN THE CONGRESS. MARIA: WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THESE NEW FOX NEWS POLLS THAT SHOWS THE PRESIDENT LOSING TO CERTAINLY THE TOP CANDIDATES, THE HOPEFULS, BERNIE SANDERS, YOU’VE GOT HIM LOSING TO BIDEN AND EVEN ELIZABETH WARREN.>>WELL, THE ONLY RESPONSE I HAVE, MARIA, IS THAT ALL THE POLLS WERE WRONG IN 2016. AND THERE’S ONLY ONE POLL THAT MATTERS. AND I HAVE THE SAME FEELING. IN FACT, THE PRESIDENT AND I OFTEN TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT AS WE TRAVEL AROUND THE COUNTRY AND YOU SAW IT IN NEW MEXICO THIS WEEK AGAIN, AND I’VE SEEN IT AT THE RALLIES I’VE BEEN WITH THE PRESIDENT, I THINK THERE’S MORE ENTHUSIASM TODAY FOR WHAT THE PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BEEN ABLE TO DO FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAN THERE WAS EVEN WHEN PEOPLE WERE RALLYING AROUND HIM AS A CANDIDATE WITH PROMISES OF WHAT HE WOULD DO. I HEAR IT ALL THE TIME. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SEE, WE’RE STANDING TALL IN THE WORLD AGAIN, WE’RE STANDING WITH OUR ALLIES, WE’RE STANDING UP AGAINST OUR ENEMIES, WE’RE REBUILDING THE MILITARY, WE’RE GIVING THE MILITARY RESOURCES THEY NEED TO ACCOMPLISH THEIR MISSION, DEFEND OUR COUNTRY. THE ECONOMY IS SOARING, 6 MILLION NEW JOBS, UNEMPLOYMENT. MARIA: IT HAS TO CONTINUE. WE ARE SEEING A SLOWDOWN.>>CONSERVATIVES ARE ON OUR COURTS. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW THAT’S ALL BEEN A RESULT OF A PRESIDENT WHOSE LABORED AND WORKED TO KEEP HIS PROMISES AND I REALLY DO BELIEVE, WHATEVER THE POLLS SHOW, THAT COME ELECTION DAY 2020 WE’RE GOING TO GET FOUR MORE YEARS OF PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND WE’RE GOING TO WORK OUR HEARTS OUT TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE A LOT OF SUPPORTERS ON CAPITOL HILL AND STATE HOUSES AROUND THE COUNTRY. MARIA: THIS IS MY FINAL HE QUESTION. PEOPLE ARE WORRIED ABOUT IRAN. IS THE U.S. GOING TO RESPOND TO IRAN ATTACKING THE SAUDI OILFIELDS.>>MARIA, AT THE PRESIDENT’S DIRECTION WE ARE RIGHT NOW EVALUATING THE EVIDENCE ASSOCIATED WITH THE YOU ATTACK OF THIS LAST SATURDAY ON SAUDI ARABIAN OIL FACILITIES. IT WAS THE LARGEST ATTACK ON GLOBAL OIL INFRASTRUCTURE IN HISTORY. AND SECRETARY OF STATE ARRIVED THIS WEEK. HE’S CONSULTING WITH SAUDI ARABIAN OFFICIALS. WE’VE HAD INVESTIGATORS ON THE GROUND WORKING CLOSELY. THE PRESIDENT HAS DIRECTED THE TEAM TO GET THE FACTS. THIS CLEARLY, THE SAUDIS HAVE CONFIRMED THAT THE MISSILES AND DRONES THAT WERE USED HERE WERE IRANIAN MISSILES AN DRONES BUT WHAT WE’RE SEEKING TO IDENTIFY IS WHERE THEY WERE FIRED FROM. THE HOUTHIS HAVE TAKEN CREDIT FAR TO THE SOUTH IN YEMEN. THERE’S SOME EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY OF THAT. THE PRESIDENT HAS DIRECTED THE TEAM TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF IT. WE’RE GOING TO BE IMPOSING NEW PUNISHING SANCTIONS ON IRAN FOR A WHOLE RANGE OF ACTIVITIES IT’S CONTINUED TO CONDUCT ACROSS THE REGION AND WHATEVER ACTION THE UNITED STATES TAKES WILL BE A DECISION FOR THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES BUT I CAN PROMISE YOU, I THINK THERE’S TWO THINGS YOU CAN OBSERVE HERE. FIRST, OUR MAXIMUM PRESSURE CAMPAIGN IS WORKING. THE IRANIAN ECONOMY IS LITERALLY COLLAPSING. MARIA: HOW IS THIS NOT SEEN?>>AND THE ACTIVITIES IN THE REGION REGARDING OIL TANKERS, THEIR SUPPORT FOR HOUTHIS, THEIR CONTINUED SUPPORT FOR TERRORISM ARE ALL EVIDENCE OF INCREASING DESPERATION BY THE IRANIANS AND WHILE THE PRESIDENT SAID IT’S LIKELY THIS ATTACK ACTUALLY ORIGINATED IN IRAN, WE’RE GOING TO GET TO THE FACTS AND WHATEVER ACTION THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP DETERMINES IS PROPER, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN BE CONFIDENT THAT WE’RE GOING TO DEFEND OUR INTEREST. WE’RE GOING TO DEFEND OUR TROOPS. AND WE’RE GOING TO DEFEND OUR ALLIES IN THE REGION. MARIA: VICE PRESIDENT PENCE,

Author Since: Mar 11, 2019

  1. As I've said before in other posts pence is by far one of the most credible smart vice presidents I've ever seen or heard speaking, hes a true patriot to the president and this country

  2. Interviewer: So, President Trump, what country are you trying to start a war with? Trump: Iran. Interviewer: And when you were drafted for Vietnam what did you do? Trump: I RAN!

  3. There is no Democrat Party anymore, they are officially Socialists/Communists. It will be interesting to see how many votes they actually get

  4. Good decent people are ostersized now day if ur a liar a crook well we will believe those lies rather then the truth, lies wash down the stream truth has to have explanations ,

  5. It’s an attack on one of the third branches of government. They are communists!!! And that’s no bullshavic!!! Not trying to be funny! They hate the republic.

  6. with this type of statesman, the country is beyond repair. the Judeo-Talmudists as their other half, the Judeo-Zionists, know this. for them, the only "usefulness" left in the nation is to defend their "printed" wealth, keeping some purchasing value to "their" greenbacks. the price of this evil intent is the risk of ending up under the nuclear bus.

  7. Does anyone seriously believe that the U.S military are going to say we will retaliate against Iran on this day? More likely a statement like Last night at 3.00 am a Saudi led coalition attacked Iranian Republican guard, oil production, military bases and the Supreme Council in well coordinated lightning strikes resulting in a complete collapse of Iran.

  8. Thank you Mr VP Pence. I have Trust and Faith in you and President Trump. It's an undeclared War….but we still intend to WIN VICTORY, please GOD! I am a kiwi in Australia- can't wait to see you separately or together here>

  9. For all we know the Deep State is blowing up those oil fields because they think there are two things that can take President Donald Trump down, the destruction of our economy or starting a war, so they can blame President Donald Trump.

  10. People ask me what I am doing for my future and retirement, I tell them learning the Chines language and teaching my grandchildren the same….

  11. Michael Wake up, no re-election without a Peace Deal for a Thousand Years,

    That is the reason you were elected.

    Now Deliver or four and out

  12. First we allow big Pharma to have a field day with the American people Creating the opiate crisis Then we switch to Afghanistan $50 billion a year Heroin sales wonder whose Profiting

  13. I want to KNOW who are they polling? They claim they pole EVERY DAY!! I have not talked to one, NOT one single person, that has been ask, and I talk to ALOT of people!! Do they call land lines? If they do that is a VERY limited number of Americans. They are usually home bound. How are they getting the NUMBERS? Everyone I have talked to backs OUR GREAT PRESIDENT!! I DO NOT BELEIVE THEM!!! GOD BLESS!!!

  14. If you people out there vote for ANY democrat in ANY election you should be totally ashamed of yourself for allowing those effin bastards to ruin our American way of life! Please THINK about your fellow Americans and vote 100% REPUBLICAN!!!! MAGA TRUMP 2020 & KAG

  15. Trump accomplished many goals in the face of total opposition from the left. He is more popular than ever . POLLS are total bunk !!

  16. For the love of GOD . CUT OFF THEIR FOOD NOW!!!!!!.When their people are hungry they will rise up and take care of the problems themselves. But no we keep sending them food . WTF

  17. Lol NBC viewers looks genius in compare with Fox ones 😂
    Yanks are dummy,thanks god this regime is falling a part, zionists media are good.

  18. You talk about the 3 branches of government making our country what it is so why doesn't the Trump Administration abide by their purpose.and you and Trump are the biggest offenders and what about the 17 other women who have accused Kavamaugh?? He isn't exactly a choir boy and I don't know of any woman who was drugged with alcohol and drugs (HGB) being able to remember anything. So excuse me while I go and renew my subscription to the NYT

  19. When we are talking, we are not shooting or dropping bombs. Let Saudi Arabia defend themselves from Iran. It's their war, and as President Trump said, "we are Not the worlds Police". I think China is wishy washy but they want to deal with Trump. They are losing way more than we are. This is where Trump is king, in making deals to benefit Him (US). Relax, we are not at war at this point.

  20. Demon crats sorry sorry Democrats jaskasses are objective and terristic unsafe to this Union can't any one see this in power hello. How much more evidence do you need.

  21. It don't matter what a TURD does, his TURD BUDDIES will defend to the end.
    tRumpty Dumbpty is going to have a "GREAT FALL OFF OF THE INVISIBLE WALL"
    Pense is much like Lewendowski
    he didn't read the Mueller Report.
    This is an embarrassing reality that tRumpty Dumbpty and Mike Dence are the
    DUMBEST PRESIDENT AND VISE PRESIDENT IN U. S. HISTORY!

  22. of course trump will send a few thousand US troops to their deaths to help his muslim brothers, just like bush did before him. the ones who financed 911 are the republicans best mates because they stand for everything they do, MONEY

  23. I was in business with Chinese,know all about😈 how they operate. President Trump has their measure, and it's killing their plan of global domination by 2025.

  24. Pence can talk about anything he wants…but he keeps being a pedophile…and he planned an assasination on president Trump……a person that should be prosecuted and jailed for what he did…..!

  25. So tell me what u have done to make this country better or more secure, other then eat ur microwave dinners in ur basement I'd love to me u and have a real conversation but my guess u would not do that, u have little to nothing to stand on but ur lower lip, and that's all u have , I'm 6.4 60 years old in great shape beat cancer I believe in God my my guess u don't, or I'd head a different words , I see people like u every day I saved ur family u and ur freinds from the take over of socialism from other countries but my guess is u like ur free I don't want to work give me my entitlement

  26. Looks like the letter VP Pence received at Poppy Bush's funeral service put him on the right track – at least until he sees an opening.

  27. There should be absolutely ZERO military response from the USA, and no assistants to the Saudi's either. Its not our fight, the Saudi's have plenty of capability to respond forcefully.
    When will we stop being the muscle for western big Oil/Energy? When will we stop spilling our kids blood, and spending our treasure for a resource we no longer need?

  28. We are very happy President Trump has resisted the pressure to make war. This could not have been easy and hope the world notices he needs political capital.
