BigNews.Biz - Feb 17,2017 - Remarks by President Trump in Listening Session with Members of Congress
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all for being here. I had a lot of good discussions this morning. I'm negotiating a lot of contracts that are saving billions and billions of dollars for the American people and for all of us, and I'm very proud of it.
You know, the F-35 fighter jet, the Air Force One program, which was totally out of control and now it's back where it's supposed to go, and many other things. In addition, I had a very good phone call this morning about a major plant that's moving back into the United States. We'll be talking about it soon.
And what I do have is a little free time at about 12 o'clock. So I don't think the press will want to show up, but I think I'll have a press conference probably at 12 o'clock in the East Room. We had a little time in between things. So if the press would like to show up -- will anybody show up to that press conference? (Laughter.) Historically, they didn't care about these things. For me, they show up. So I think 12 o'clock in the East Room of the White House we'll have a press conference.
I just want to thank you folks for coming today. This was good. This was scheduled a long time ago -- some of my very, very early supporters. And I've been your supporter also. We're doing really well. The fake-news media doesn't like talking about the economy; I never see anything about the stock market sets new records every day. I never see it. But I think the people understand it.
We're giving a speech in Melbourne, Florida on Saturday. I think it's going to be around 4 o'clock. and I hear the tickets, you can't get them, but that's okay. It's better than you have too many, right? So it's going to be great. I look forward to that. So that will be Melbourne at 4 o'clock.
I really appreciate you folks. You folks have been so great. And right from the beginning, and, Tom, right at the beginning. Just about every one of you, right at the beginning. Some of you were a little after the beginning. (Laughter.) But we forgive. But we forgive.
Let's go around, just for the media, and you'll introduce yourselves and then we'll start talking, and I'll see the media back at 12 o'clock.
CONGRESSMAN COLLINS: Well, Mr. President, we're all honored to be here. This is really our Trump caucus reconvening for the first time in a little bit, but our first meeting was the first part of March. Duncan Hunter and I both endorsed you on February 24th, a week from tomorrow. So it’s the one-year anniversary. But this is the Trump caucus, reconvening, and we’re just so honored you’re taking time out of your busy schedule to be with us.
THE PRESIDENT: These
