In his first one-on-one television interview since being sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, President Donald Trump told ABC News anchor David Muir that Mexico would be paying for the proposed border wall and that negotiations between the two nations would begin “relatively soon.”
“Ultimately, it will come out of what’s happening with Mexico … and we will be in a form reimbursed by Mexico, which I’ve always said,” Trump said.
During the interview, which took place at the White House this morning, Trump said that Mexico would pay the U.S. back “100 percent.”
He confirmed that U.S. taxpayer dollars would be used to start the construction but said reimbursement would follow.
“All it is, is we’ll be reimbursed at a later date from whatever transaction we make from Mexico,” he said. “I’m just telling you there will be a payment. It will be in a form, perhaps a complicated form. What I’m doing is good for the United States. It’s also going to be good for Mexico. We want to have a very stable, very solid Mexico.”
When asked about the start of construction, Trump said it would happen in “months.”
“As soon as we can, as soon as we can physically do it,” he said. “I would say in months, yeah. I would say in months — certainly planning is starting immediately.”
Donald Trump Pledges ‘America First’ Creed, says ‘You will Never be Ignored Again’ … And Power Back to the People!!!
TRUMP CHIDES WASHINGTON POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT AND PLEDGES POWER BACK TO THE PEOPLE …
President elect no more, now President of the United States Donald J. Trump. In his inauguration speech, Trump ripped the Washington, DC political establishment class and promised to return the power back to We the People. President Trump stated an ‘America first’ creed and ‘you will never be ignored again’. This is why Trump was elected. Let this be a warning to Republicans and Democrat politicians alike.
Donald J. Trump preached the populist and nationalist message that fueled his presidential campaign in his first remarks as the 45th president of the United States, pledging an “America first” creed.
“The forgotten men and women of this country will be forgotten no longer,” the businessman and former reality television star said in front of the U.S. Capitol on Friday.
As raindrops fell on the crowd gathered on the National Mall, Trump said he planned to “transfer power from Washington, D.C.” to the people, taking swipes at politicians, some of whom stood just over his shoulder. He told Americans that “you will never be ignored again,” repeating his campaign pledges to push companies to return jobs to the U.S. and to rebuild American infrastructure.
UPDATE I: Trump criticized those in Washington who he said had forgotten those who bore the cost of the actions of politicians.
“We are transferring power from Washington DC and giving it back to you, the people,” said Trump.
LOOKS LIKE A MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE HOPEFUL ABOUT 2017!!!
Yet another story the liberal MSM will not tell you about. According to a new Morning Consult survey, 72% of Americans say they feel hopeful about 2017. One would think that with all the negative media stories of Trump and the unwillingness of the LEFT to accept Trump as president that this number would be a lot lower. But maybe, just maybe the mood of the country is much like the 2016 presidential election … a change and move away from Obama and the Left to the message of hope and Making America Great Gain that won Donald Trump an electoral landslide.
Nearly three-quarters of Americans, or 72 percent of those polled, say they are feeling hopeful about 2017, according to a new Morning Consult survey.
Sixty-one percent of respondents say they are feeling optimistic about the upcoming year, and 51 percent of people are feeling excited.
But half of the respondents say they are feeling anxious about the coming year, according to the poll.
Twenty-three percent reported feeling sad and 19 percent reported feeling angry going into the new year.
Less than half of respondents say they are feeling peaceful or relaxed about the coming year, and a quarter reported feeling indifferent.
Eighty-one percent of Americans say they are concerned about the nation’s political atmosphere, and 64 percent are worried about world affairs.
Still, 55 percent say they think 2017 will be a better year than 2016, with 59 percent saying they expect to do better financially in 2017.
Donald Trump First Stop on His ‘Thank You Tour’ to The Poeple for electing Him President in Cincinnati, OH
DONALD TRUMP THANKS THE PEOPLE …
At a Thank You rally in Cincinnati Ohio yesterday, Donald Trump wowed the crowd and thanked the people for electing him president. Trump stated, “We made history and the real work begins, .. although we did have a lot of fun fighting Hillary”. That was met by chants from the crowd of “lock her up.” Trump also called for all people to come together and focus on what unites us not divides us.
”THANK YOU” Rally in Cincinnati, Ohio (12-1-2016)
The first stop in President-elect Donald Trump’s “thank you tour” quickly turned into a victory lap for the real estate magnate to revel in his surprising win and bash the naysayers that believed he had no shot at the White House.
Trump’s Thursday speech in Ohio largely mirrored the popular rallies that were a mainstay of his presidential campaign. The businessman boasted about his upset of Hillary Clinton, railed against the media, and chided politicians that counted him out or refused to back him.
“Our victory was so great, we have the House, we have the Senate, we have the presidency,” Trump said at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati. “People are constantly telling me and telling you to reduce our expectations. Now is not the time to downsize our dreams.”
He set his eyes on the “dishonest” media and the conventional wisdom that a blue wall in states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin would buoy Clinton no matter what happened.
“How about when a major anchor who hosted a debate started crying when she realized that we won?” Trump asked the booing crowd, referring to ABC News’ Martha Raddatz, who appeared to tear up during election coverage as Trump’s victory became apparent.
“[The media] was saying for months there was no way that Donald Trump can break that blue wall. We didn’t break it, we shattered that sucker. Man, that poor wall is busted up.”
And he criticized news outlets for waiting too long to call states like Pennsylvania, even when it became clear he was set to win.
Trump also took a shot at Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who was a vocal opponent of the president-elect and never endorsed him, saying he didn’t get support from “the upper echelon of politician” in the state.
Trump’s off-the-cuff remarks may have taken his own team by surprise: He announced at the rally that he was in fact tapping retired Marine Gen. James Mattis for Defense Secretary. The news had broken hours before in reports from CNN and Military Times, but Trump spokesman Jason Miller tweeted that no decision had been made. Trump told the crowd to keep the announcement under wraps, as it wasn’t supposed to be made public until Monday.
Michigan Secretary of State Posted Results … Donald Trump Wins Michigan by 10,704 (Trump Wins Landslide Election 306 to 232 in Electoral College)
THE COUNTING IS FINALLY OVER IN MICHIGAN AND TRUMPS WINS AS EXPECTED ON ELECTION NIGHT … LANDSLIDE WIN FOR TRUMP 306 TO 232 …
Donald Trump has been declared the winner in Michigan. Even though the election took place Tuesday, November 8, 2016, the Michigan Secretary of State has finally posted results Wednesday, the day before a long extended Thanksgiving holiday, Republican Donald Trump has defeated Hillary Clinton 2,279,543 to 2,268,839 and captures the 16 electoral college votes. The addition of the 16 electoral college votes to the Trump ledger now provides The Donald with a landslide electoral college win over Clinton and a mandate. The Left is still complaining and refusing to come to grips with the will of the people vote and are referencing that they will challenge the vote totals in the battleground states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, North Carolina. But wasn’t it Hillary Clinton and Democrats who railed on Trump following the 3rd presidential debate for not accepting the will of the people? Oh the hypocrisy.
