hello everybody great to be back in New

0-06

York with all of our friends and some

0-10

great friends outside the building I

0-11

must tell you I want to thank all of our

0-14

distinguished guests who are with us

0-17

today including members of our cabinet

0-20

Treasury Secretary Stephen minuchin OMB

0-24

director Mick Mulvaney and of course our

0-27

transportation secretary who is doing a

0-30

fabulous job Elaine Chao thank you all

0-34

for doing a really incredible and

0-38

creative job on what we’re going to be

0-41

discussing today which is infrastructure

0-44

we’ve just had a great set of briefings

0-48

upstairs on our infrastructure agenda my

0-52

administration is working every day to

0-54

deliver the world-class infrastructure

0-56

that our people deserve and frankly that

0-59

our country deserves that’s why I just

1-03

signed a new executive order to

1-05

dramatically reform the nation’s badly

1-07

broken infrastructure permitting process

1-11

just blocks away as the Empire State

1-13

Building it took 11 months to build the

1-17

Empire State Building but today it can

1-20

take as long as a decade and much more

1-22

than that many many stores where it

1-25

takes 20 and 25 years just to get

1-28

approvals to start construction of a

1-32

fairly routine highway highway builders

1-36

must get up to 16 different approvals

1-38

involving nine different federal

1-40

agencies governed by 29 different

1-43

statutes one agency alone can stall a

1-46

project for many many years and even

1-48

decades not only does this cost our

1-52

economy billions of dollars but it also

1-55

denies our citizens the safe and modern

1-57

infrastructure they deserve this

2-00

over-regulated permitting process is a

2-02

massive self-inflicted wound on our

2-06

country it’s disgraceful denying our

2-10

people much-needed investments in their

2-12

community and

2-13

just want to show you this because it

2-15

was just showing me and I think I think

2-16

I’m going to show it to the media both

2-21

real and fake media by the way this is

2-24

what it takes to get something approved

2-26

today melanne you see that so this is

2-31

what it takes permitting process flow

2-33

chart that’s a float yard so that can go

2-36

out to 20 years this shows about 10 but

2-39

that could go out to about 20 years to

2-41

get something approved this is for a

2-44

highway I’ve seen a highway recently in

2-47

a certain state I won’t manage to

2-48

mention its name it’s 17 years I could

2-52

have built it for 4 or 5 million dollars

2-54

without the permitting process it costs

2-58

hundreds of millions of dollars but it

3-00

took 17 years to get it approved and

3-04

many many many many pages of

3-09

environmental impact studies this is

3-11

what we will bring it down to this is

3-13

less than 2 years this is gonna happen

3-16

quickly that’s what I’m signing today

3-17

this will be less than 2 years for a

3-20

highway so it’s going to be quick it’s

3-24

going to be a very streamlined process

3-27

and by the way if it doesn’t meet

3-29

environmental safeguards we’re not going

3-31

to approve it very simple we’re not

3-34

going to approve it so this is maybe

3-36

this one will say let’s throw the other

3-38

one away would anybody like it from the

3-40

media would anybody like that long

3-42

beautiful chart you can have it

3-44

so my executive order also requires

3-47

agencies to work together efficiently by

3-50

requiring one lead agency for each major

3-54

infrastructure project it also holds

3-58

agencies accountable if they fail to

4-00

streamline their review process so each

4-02

agency is accountable we’re gonna get

4-05

infrastructure built quickly

4-09

inexpensively relatively speaking and

4-11

the permitting process will go very very

4-13

quickly no longer will we tolerate one

4-16

job-killing delay after another no

4-19

longer will we accept a broken system

4-21

that benefits consultants and lobbyists

4-25

at the expense of hard-working

4-26

Americans now I knew the process very

4-29

well probably better than anybody I had

4-31

to get permits for this building and

4-33

many of the buildings I built all of the

4-34

buildings I built in Manhattan and many

4-36

other places and I will tell you that

4-40

the consultants are rich people they go

4-44

around making it very difficult they

4-46

lobby Congress they lobby state

4-49

government city governments to make it

4-51

very difficult so that you have to hire

4-52

consultants and that you have to take

4-55

years and pay them a fortune

4-56

so we’re streamlining lining the process

4-59

and we won’t be having so much of that

5-01

anymore no longer will we allow the

5-02

infrastructure of our magnificent

5-05

country to crumble and decay while

5-09

protecting the environment we will build

5-11

Leeming new roads bridges railways

5-13

waterways tunnels and highways we will

5-17

rebuild our country with American

5-19

workers American iron American aluminum

5-23

American steel we will create millions

5-27

of new jobs and make millions of

5-29

American dreams come true our

5-32

infrastructure will again be the best in

5-34

the world we used to have the greatest

5-35

infrastructure anywhere in the world and

5-38

today we’re like a third-world country

5-41

we are literally like a third-world

5-43

country our infrastructure will again be

5-47

the best and we will restore the pride

5-51

in our communities our nation and all

5-55

over the United States will be proud

5-56

again so I want to thank everybody for

5-59

being here god bless you god bless the

6-01

United States and if you have any

6-04

questions we have Mick you could come up

6-07

here please come on up Mick Mulvaney if

6-13

you have any questions please feel free

6-15

to ask

6-19

because they’re not taking their job

6-22

seriously as it pertains to this country

6-25

we want jobs manufacturing in this

6-28

country if you look at some of those

6-30

people that you’re talking about they’re

6-32

outside of the country they’re having a

6-35

lot of their product made outside if you

6-37

look at Merck as an example take a look

6-39

where excuse me take a look at where

6-41

their product is made it’s made outside

6-44

of our country we want products made in

6-47

the country now I have to tell you some

6-48

of the folks that will leave they’re

6-51

leaving out of embarrassment because

6-53

they make their products outside and

6-55

I’ve been lecturing them including the

6-57

gentleman that you’re referring to about

6-59

you have to bring it back to this

7-01

country you can’t do it necessarily in

7-04

Ireland and all of these other places

7-06

you have to bring this work back to this

7-09

country that’s what I want I want

7-11

manufacturing to be back into the United

7-14

States so that American workers can

7-16

benefit I didn’t I wanted to make sure

7-26

unlike most politicians that what I said

7-29

was correct not make a quick statement

7-32

the statement I made on Saturday the

7-34

first statement was a fine statement but

7-37

you don’t make statements that direct

7-39

unless you know the fact it takes a

7-42

little while to get the facts you still

7-44

don’t know the facts and it’s a very

7-46

very important process to me and it’s a

7-50

very important statement so I don’t want

7-52

to go quickly and just make a statement

7-54

for the sake of making a political

7-55

statement I want to know the facts if

7-57

you go back to my effect I brought it I

8-01

brought it I brought it as I said on

8-06

remember the Saturday we condemn in the

8-09

strongest possible terms this egregious

8-12

display of hatred bigotry and violence

8-15

it has no place in America and then I

8-18

went on from there now here’s the thing

8-20

as to excuse me excuse me take it nice

8-22

and easy here’s the thing when I make a

8-26

statement I like to be correct I want

8-28

the facts this event just happened in

8-30

fact a lot of the event didn’t even

8-32

happen yet

8-33

as we were speaking this event just

8-35

happened before I make a statement I

8-37

need the facts so I don’t want to rush

8-40

into a statement so making the statement

8-42

when I made it was excellent in fact the

8-45

young woman who I hear is a fantastic

8-48

young woman and it was on NBC

8-51

her mother wrote me and said through I

8-56

guess Twitter social media the nicest

9-00

things and I very much appreciated that

9-02

I hear she was a fine really actually an

9-06

incredible young woman but her mother on

9-08

Twitter thanked me for what I said and

9-11

honestly if the press were not fake and

9-14

if it was honest the press would have

9-16

said what I said was very nice but

9-18

unlike you and unlike excuse me unlike

9-21

you and unlike the media before I make a

9-23

statement I like to know the facts they

9-28

don’t say what not at all

9-47

I think the country look you take a look

9-49

I’ve created over a million jobs in some

9-52

president the country is booming the

9-55

stock market is setting records we have

9-56

the highest employment numbers we’ve

9-58

ever had in the history of our country

10-00

we’re doing record business we have the

10-02

highest levels of enthusiasm so the head

10-06

of Walmart who I know was a very nice

10-08

guy was making a political statement I

10-10

mean you know because I want to make

10-17

sure when I make a statement that the

10-20

statement is correct and there was no

10-22

way there was no way of making a correct

10-26

statement that early I had to see the

10-28

facts unlike a lot of reporters I didn’t

10-34

know David Duke was there I wanted to

10-37

see the facts and the facts as they

10-39

started coming out were very well stated

10-43

in fact everybody said his statement was

10-45

beautiful if he would have made it

10-47

sooner that would have been good I

10-49

couldn’t have made it sooner because I

10-51

didn’t know all of the facts frankly

10-54

people still don’t know all of the facts

10-56

it was a really important excuse me

10-58

excuse me

10-59

it was very important to me to get the

11-03

facts out and correctly because if I

11-05

would have made a fast statement and the

11-07

first statement was made without knowing

11-09

much other than what we were seeing the

11-12

second statement was made after with

11-14

knowledge with great knowledge there’s

11-16

still things excuse me there’s still

11-19

things that people don’t know I want to

11-21

make a statement with knowledge I wanted

11-23

to know the facts okay

11-26

two questions was this terrorism and you

11-29

tell us that your feeling about it your

11-30

chief strategy well the driver of the

11-32

car is a disgrace to himself his family

11-36

in this country and that is you can call

11-40

it terrorism you can call it murder you

11-44

can call it whatever you want I would

11-46

just call it as the fastest one to come

11-49

up with a good verdict that’s what I’d

11-50

call it

11-51

because there is a question is it murder

11-53

is a terrorism and then you get into

11-55

legal semantics the driver of the car is

11-59

a murderer and what he did was a

12-01

horrible horrible inexcusable thing I

12-11

never spoke to mr. Bannon about it I

12-18

like mr. Bennish he’s a friend of mine

12-20

but mr. banek came on very late you know

12-23

that I went through 17 senators

12-26

governors and I want all the primaries

12-28

  1. Bannon came on very much later than

12-30

that and I liked him

12-33

he’s a good man he is not a racist I can

12-36

tell you that he’s a good person

12-38

he actually gets a very unfair press in

12-40

that regard but we’ll see what happens

12-43

with mr. Bannon but he’s a good person

12-46

and I think the press treats him frankly

12-47

very unfairly

12-56

[Music]

13-08

us getting good health care well I don’t

13-21

know I can’t tell you I’m sure Senator

13-23

McCain must know what he’s talking about

13-25

but when you say the alt-right define

13-28

all right to me you define excuse me

13-38

what about the alt left they came

13-40

charging at the as you say the alt right

13-42

do they have any semblance of guilt what

13-49

about the fact that came charging that

13-51

they came charging with clubs in the

13-52

hands swinging clubs do they have any

13-55

problem I think they do that was a

14-00

horrible horrible day wait a minute I’m

14-03

not finished

14-04

I’m not finished fake news that was a

14-07

horrible day I watched those very

14-15

closely much more closely than you

14-16

people watched it and you have you had a

14-20

group on one side that was bad and you

14-22

had a group on the other side that was

14-23

also very violent and nobody wants to

14-26

say that but I’ll say it right now you

14-29

had a group you had a group on the other

14-30

side that came charging in without a

14-33

permit and they were very very violent

14-41

what you call the alt left is the same

14-44

as neo-nazis I owe those people all of

14-47

those people excuse me I’ve condemned

14-50

neo-nazis I’ve condemned many different

14-53

groups but not all of those people were

14-56

neo-nazis believe me not all of those

14-59

people were white supremacist by any

15-01

stretch those people to protest the

15-07

taking down of a statue robert e lee so

15-10

excuse me and you take a look at some of

15-13

the groups and you see and you know it

15-15

if you were honest reporters which in

15-16

many cases you’re not but many of those

15-18

people were there to protest the taking

15-21

down of the statue of robert e lee so

15-23

this week it’s robert e lee i noticed

15-26

that stonewall jackson’s coming down I

15-28

wonder is it George Washington next week

15-31

and is it Thomas Jefferson the week

15-33

after

15-33

you know you oh you really do have to

15-35

ask yourself where does it stop but they

15-38

were there to protest excuse me you take

15-41

a look the night before they were there

15-43

to protest the taking down of the statue

15-46

of Robert Ely infrastructure question go

15-48

ahead the property lease they up I would

15-52

say that’s up to a local town community

15-56

or the federal government depending on

15-58

where it is located

16-05

I think they’ve gotten better or the

16-08

same I look they’ve been frayed for a

16-10

long time and you can ask President

16-12

Obama about that because he’d make

16-14

speeches about it but I believe that the

16-17

fact that I brought in it will be soon

16-20

millions of jobs you see where companies

16-22

are moving back into our country I think

16-25

that’s going to have a tremendous

16-26

positive impact on race relations we

16-29

have companies coming back into our

16-31

country we have two car companies that

16-33

just announced we have Foxconn in

16-35

Wisconsin just announced we have many

16-37

companies I say pouring back into the

16-40

country I think that’s going to have a

16-42

huge positive impact on race relations

16-45

you know why it’s jobs what people want

16-48

now they want jobs they want great jobs

16-50

with good pay

16-52

and when they have that you watch how

16-54

race relations will be and I’ll tell you

16-56

we’re spending a lot of money on the

16-58

inner cities we’re gonna fix we’re

17-00

fixing the inner cities we’re doing far

17-01

more than anybody’s done with respect to

17-04

the inner cities it’s a priority for me

17-06

and it’s very important

17-14

I’m not putting anybody on a moral plan

17-16

what I’m saying is this you had a group

17-18

on one side and you had a group on the

17-20

other and they came at each other with

17-22

clubs and it was vicious and it was

17-24

horrible and it was a horrible thing to

17-26

watch but there is another side there

17-29

was a group on this side you can call

17-31

him the lefty you’ve just called him the

17-33

left that came violently attacking the

17-36

other group so you can say what you want

17-38

but that’s the way it is there’s Blaine

17-46

yes I think there’s blame on both sides

17-48

you look at you look at both sides

17-50

I think there’s blame on both sides and

17-53

I have no doubt about it and you don’t

17-55

have any doubt about it either oh and if

17-59

you reported it accurately you would say

18-13

but you also had people that were very

18-17

fine people on both sides

18-19

you had people in that group excuse me

18-21

excuse me I saw the same pictures as you

18-24

did you had people in that group that

18-27

were there to protest the taking down of

18-29

to them a very very important statue and

18-32

the renaming of a park from robert e lee

18-35

to another name George Washington was a

18-39

slave owner was George Washington a

18-41

slave owner so will George Washington

18-44

now lose his status are we gonna take

18-46

down excuse me are we gonna take down

18-49

are we gonna take down statues to George

18-51

why how about Thomas Jefferson what do

18-54

you think of Thomas Jefferson you like

18-55

him okay good

18-57

are we gonna take down the statute

18-59

because he was a major slave owner now

19-01

we’re gonna take down his statue so you

19-03

know what it’s fine

19-04

you’re changing history you’re changing

19-06

culture and you had people and I’m not

19-09

talking about the neo-nazis and the

19-11

white nationalist because they should be

19-12

condemned

19-13

totally but you had many people in that

19-15

group other than neo-nazis and white

19-18

nationalists okay and the press has

19-21

treated them absolutely unfairly now in

19-24

the other group also you had some fine

19-27

people but you also had troublemakers

19-29

and you see them come with a with the

19-31

black outfits and with the helmets and

19-34

with the baseball bats you got a you had

19-37

a lot of beds you had a lot of bad

19-38

people in the other groups we were

19-42

saying you were saying the press has

19-43

treated white nationalists unfairly

19-45

there were people in that rally and I

19-47

looked the night before if you look they

19-50

were people protesting very quietly the

19-55

taking down of the statue of Robert Ely

19-59

I’m sure in that group there were some

20-01

bad ones the following day it looked

20-02

like they had some rough bad people

20-06

neo-nazis white nationalists whatever

20-09

you want to call them but you had a lot

20-11

of people in that group that were there

20-12

to innocently protest and very legally

20-15

protest because you know I don’t know if

20-17

you know they had a permit the other

20-19

group didn’t have a permit so I

20-23

we tell you this there are two sides to

20-25

a story I thought what took place was a

20-28

horrible moment for our country

20-31

a horrible moment but there are two

20-33

sides of the country

20-34

does anybody have a final does anybody

20-36

have any leaven infrastructure what

20-38

makes you think you can get an

20-39

infrastructure bill you didn’t get

20-40

healthcare we came very close with

20-43

healthcare unfortunately john mccain

20-45

decided to vote against it at the last

20-47

minute you’ll have to ask john mccain

20-49

why he did that but we came very close

20-51

to health care we will end up getting

20-53

healthcare but we’ll get the

20-55

infrastructure and actually

20-56

infrastructure something that i think

20-57

will have bipartisan support on i

20-59

actually think I actually think

21-01

democrats will go along with the

21-03

infrastructure to the family of the

21-07

victim of the car now be reaching out I

21-11

was very i I thought that the statement

21-14

put out the the mother’s statement I

21-17

thought was a beautiful statement I was

21-20

tell you it was it was something that I

21-23

really appreciate it I thought it was

21-25

terrific and really under the under the

21-27

kind of stress that she’s under and the

21-30

heartache that she’s under I thought

21-32

putting out that statement to me was

21-34

really something I won’t forget thank

21-36

you all very much thank you thank you

21-47

no I own a house and where is it oh boy

21-50

21-53

21-55

winery I mean I know a lot about

21-59

Charlotte’s well Charlottesville is a

22-01

great place that’s been very badly hurt

22-03

over the last couple of days I own

22-07

actually one of the largest wineries in

22-09

the United States it’s enjoys overcome

22-17

the racial divides as well I really

22-18

think jobs can have a big impact I think

22-20

if we continue to create jobs over a

22-23

million substantially more than a

22-24

million and you see just the other day

22-27

the car companies coming in with Fox you

22-29

know fuck I think if we continue to

22-32

create jobs at levels that I’m people

22-35

i’m creating jobs i think that’s gonna

22-37

have a tremendous impact positive impact

22-39

on race relations and what you said

22-42

today how do you think that will impact

22-43

the racial sort of thing are they

22-46

working they’re gonna be making a lot of

22-47

money much more money than they ever

22-48

thought possible that’s gonna happen and

22-51

the other thing be very important I

22-53

believe wages will start going up they

22-55

haven’t gone up for a long time I

22-56

believe wages now because the economy is

22-59

doing so well with respect to employment

23-01

and unemployment

23-03

I believe wages will start to go up I

23-05

think that will have a tremendously

23-07

positive impact on race relations
