Office of the Press Secretary

Oval Office

2:12 P.M. EST

     THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you very much for being here.  We have a very big moment because we have Danny Burch back home, where he should be.

He was in Yemen, in a very horrible situation -- a captive, a prisoner.  You can call him whatever you want, but it wasn't good.  He was there for 18 months -- even a little more than 18 months -- and we got him out.  And we had some great help from UAE and all of our friends.  But we got Danny out.  And he's just come home, said hello to his family, his beautiful son.  Thank you for being here.  And it's nice to see your father back where he belongs.

I want to thank our Vice President for being here.  I want to thank Mitt Romney -- Senator Romney, Senator Graham for being here.  They were in the office, unrelated to this, and they heard about this and they know the story of Danny.  This is a very big story in our country, what they did with you.  But we got him out, and we're very happy about it.

And, Danny, welcome home.

MR. BURCH:  Thank you so much.  It's great to be here.

     THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you very much.  Thank you very much.

     MR. BURCH:  (Inaudible.)

     THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you, Danny.  (Applause.)  Would you like to say something?

     MR. BURCH:  Gosh, it's great to be an American.  (Applause.)

     THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you, Danny.  Appreciate it.

     Thank you all very much.  Mike -- Mike, do you have anything to say while we're here?

     THE VICE PRESIDENT:  Just, I'm so proud of this team -- the State Department team.

     Mr. President, you've made it clear to the wider world that when Americans are detained anywhere in the world, we want them home.  And we work urgently to do that.  And we've seen great successes over the last two years.

     And Danny's homecoming is just one more statement about the priority that you and our administration, our entire team, place on bringing Americans back from captivity.

So it's an honor to be here with you.  And, Danny, it's an honor to say, "Welcome home."

     MR. BURCH:  Thank you, sir.  I appreciate it.

     THE PRESIDENT:  Well, I will say, Danny, we're 20 and 0.  We've gotten a lot of them out.  And they shouldn't have been there -- Aya from Egypt, and many others.  North Korea.  We have a few negotiations going on right now.  I won't tell you where because we don't want to blow the negotiation out the window, but we have a few negotiations going.

I love doing it because I love the end result.  This is the end result: a happy man with a happy family.

     Lindsey, would you have anything to say?

     SENATOR GRAHAM:  Congratulations.  You've got a very good hostage negotiator.  And to the Yemen people, I'm sorry you’re having to go through what you’re going through.  And thank you for taking Iran on.  I appreciate that, Mr. President.  The root of most evil in the Mideast is Iran.  Thank you.

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, would you say maybe a few words?  You worked very hard.

MR. O’BRIEN:  Sure, Mr. President.  Thank you.  And this wouldn’t happen with all of these hostages and detainees without the support of the President.  The President has had unparalleled success in bringing Americans home without paying concessions, without prisoner exchanges, but through force of will and the goodwill that he’s generated around the world.

So thank you to the UAE, which assisted President Trump in this important rescue.  And, again, I'm honored to be here with you today, sir.

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you.  That's so nice.

MR. O’BRIEN:  And welcome home, Danny.

MR. BURCH:  Thank you, sir.

THE PRESIDENT:  The Ambassador said that he’s the greatest hostage negotiator in our history.  And I say, “Don’t say it because they’ll never write it.  They’ll never write it.”

Mitt, would you say something?  Please.

SENATOR ROMNEY:  I’d be happy to.  I congratulate the administration, the President, the Vice President, for making this such a high priority.  Welcome home.  It’s wonderful to have you back in our wonderful land.

Thank you also to Robert O’Brien and the entire team at State and the administration that’s working to find ways to bring our hostages home.  It’s a great and important work, and we very much appreciate it.  It’s wonderful to have one of our own come back to our shores.

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you very much, Mitt.  And, Robert, again, congratulations to everybody.  Keep it going.  We have some other ones going right now that nobody knows about, but we’re going to pull it off.

And I really -- you’re doing a fantastic job.  Thank you very much.

MR. O’BRIEN:  Thank you, sir.

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank all very much.  Thank you.  Thank you.

Q    How are the trade talks going with China?

THE PRESIDENT:  Going okay.  We’re moving along.  We’re discussing that with Lindsey and Mitt.  They’re moving along well, and we’ll see what happens.  They’re either going to be a good deal or it’s not going to be a deal.  But I think they’re moving on very nicely.

Q    Mr. President, is North Korea breaking a promise by rebuilding a key missile launch site?

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, we’re going to see.  It’s too early to see.  But we have to solve a problem.  We have a very nasty problem there.  We have to solve a problem.  The relationship is good.

I would be very disappointed if that were happening.  It’s a very early report, and we’re the ones that put it out.  But I would be very, very disappointed in Chairman Kim.  And I don’t think I will be, but we’ll see what happens.  We’ll take a look.  It’ll ultimately get solved.

Thank you all very much.  I appreciate it.

Q    What’s your message to Republicans who choose to vote against your national emergency declaration?  What’s your message to Republicans who have already chosen to vote against it?

THE PRESIDENT:  We’ll have to see how the vote goes.  We’ll see how the vote goes.

“In 2019, the Trump administration will continue leveling the playing field, balancing international trade relationships and securing strong deals. Thanks to promises made and kept by President Trump, the trade future has never looked brighter for America.”
How Team Trump is keeping promises on trade
By Peter Navarro
New York Post
March 5, 2019

Last Friday, President Trump unveiled his grand strategy for American prosperity: the 2019 Trade Policy Agenda. This forward-looking report from the US Trade Representative maps out America’s deliverance from the bad deals, weak guardrails and sluggish growth that have handicapped decades of international trade.

On Jan. 20, 2017, the Trump administration inherited a broken global trade system in which overseas competitors and governments stole our technology, unfairly subsidized national champions and dumped their products into our markets. US multinationals responded by offshoring jobs and leaving good workers and American manufacturing strongholds in the lurch. After China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001, it failed to fully abide by WTO rules and the damage grew. The US would subsequently shutter over 70,000 factories and lose millions of manufacturing jobs.
In its first two years, the Trump administration has rapidly turned this situation around.
The International Trade Commission has more than doubled its investigations of foreign subsidies harming American firms compared to President Barack Obama’s final two years. As a result of these investigations, the United States has imposed tariffs on targeted agricultural and manufactured goods to offset unfair trade practices even as President Trump has taken bold action to protect America’s steel and aluminum producers in the interests of national security.
The ongoing China negotiations likewise show that the administration’s trade strategy is highly effective in encouraging countries to address their most egregious trade practices.

The new United States Mexico Canada Agreement will improve copyright and patent protections for US companies and entrepreneurs while encouraging auto manufacturers to shift production to the United States. Ford, Fiat Chrysler, and Volkswagen have all expanded their production in the United States in anticipation of USMCA passage.

The results are undeniable: Last year, the United States created 284,000 new manufacturing jobs, the largest increase in 21 years. Today, our nation is growing faster than any other G-7 country and generating new opportunities for America’s blue-collar workers and middle-class families who have too often been left behind.

Statement from the National Security Advisor Ambassador John Bolton
The United States strongly supports the democratic transition in Venezuela led by Interim President Juan Guaido and the National Assembly and is pursuing several new diplomatic and economic initiatives in support of that transition.  The United States is putting foreign financial institutions on notice that they will face sanctions for being involved in facilitating illegitimate transactions that benefit Nicolas Maduro and his corrupt network.  We will not allow Maduro to steal the wealth of the Venezuelan people.

Yeah, This Looks Like a Border Crisis

“More than 76,000 migrants crossed the southern border illegally last month, the highest number in 12 years. So much for all those media ‘fact checks’ arguing that there’s no emergency to justify President Trump’s wall,” the New York Post editorial board writes.

“Why are they coming in such vast numbers? Because smugglers have put them wise to how to take advantage of recent court decisions to claim asylum and remain here indefinitely.”

“The nation’s top manufacturers have for the ninth consecutive quarter given the Trump economy a thumbs up, setting record industry optimism of the economy and predicting positive growth unseen during the Obama administration,” Paul Bedard reports for the Washington Examiner. “The past nine quarters . . . have seen record optimism, with an average of 91.8 percent of manufacturers positive about their own firm, compared to an average of 68.6 percent during the last two years of the Obama administration.”
“U.S. employers need to enhance the skills of their current and future workers for the economy to remain on its robust growth trajectory, said Ivanka Trump, ahead of a meeting Wednesday with prominent business executives, educators and governors,” Eric Morath writes in The Wall Street Journal. Ms. Trump will convene the first meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board this afternoon.
“Over the past several years, technological advancements like electronic health records (EHRs), cloud computing, and connected smart devices have made the long-held vision of improving patients’ access to their medical records a genuine possibility,” Senior Adviser to the President Jared Kushner, White House Deputy Chief of Staff Chris Liddell, and CMS Administrator Seema Verma write in Fortune. “A new rule issued by President Donald Trump’s administration will help turn this vision into reality.”
“First lady Melania Trump is challenging journalists to cover the opioid crisis as often as they publish ‘idle gossip and trivial stories.’ She made the request while speaking in Las Vegas Tuesday at an event with conservative commentator Eric Bolling, whose 19-year-old son died from an overdose in 2017,” Caitlin Yilek reports in the Washington Examiner.

Border at ‘breaking point,’ New York Timesreports

Two and a half weeks after President Donald J. Trump declared a National Emergency to address the crisis on our border, mainstream media outlets have dug into the numbers—and the personal stories—surrounding America’s broken immigration system.

What they’ve found comes as a shock to many Americans who never knew the trauma felt by those living in the shadows—including both U.S. citizens and migrants alike:
  • “More than 76,000 migrants crossed the border without authorization in February, more than double the levels from the same period last year and approaching the largest numbers seen in any February in the last 12 years,” The New York Timesreported today.
  • On Sunday, The New York Times published firsthand accounts of “the hidden nightmare of sexual violence on the border,” citing President Trump’s quote that “one in three women are sexually assaulted on the dangerous trek up through Mexico.”
  • On February 15, after President Trump’s border announcement, CNN’s Jim Acosta spoke with an “angel mom” immigrant whose only son was murdered by a previously deported criminal alien. “President Trump is completely correct on this issue—we need to protect this country,” she told CNN.
This morning, the Department of Homeland Security released staggering numbers that put these stories in context. American law enforcement officers are apprehending more than 2,000 aliens every day at our Southern border. All told, U.S. Border Patrol has apprehended over 268,000 individuals since the beginning of this fiscal year in October—a 97 percent increase from the previous year.

Democrat leaders are holding firm. “There is no crisis at the border,” the Democrat House Majority Leader insisted a little more than a week ago. To their credit, however, more journalists are starting to simply tell the stories of what’s happening on our border—and letting Americans decide for themselves what they think about it.

These reports are welcome. The ongoing humanitarian and security disaster at our border shouldn’t be a partisan issue, and the heart-wrenching stories it causes shouldn’t be told only by conservative media. A modern, safe, and secure immigration system would be a bipartisan triumph that renews Americans’ faith in Washington.

The only thing standing in our way is the political will.

Our country is facing a growing emergency at the border.

It is time to end this national tragedy

This afternoon, President Trump confronted a solemn crisis by signing an executive order to help end the national tragedy of veteran suicide.

The numbers are hard to believe. Each day, an average of 20 service members and veterans die by suicide. In 2016, the suicide rate among veterans was one and a half times higher than it was for other American adults, a toll that has taken far too many of our heroes.

Given the scale of the problem, the Federal Government must work with partners across all levels of the public, private, and non-profit sectors. To accomplish that, President Trump announced today that his Administration will develop a public health roadmap to cultivate outreach with every single American veteran—replacing a passive system wherein the onus for engagement is placed on veterans themselves.

“To every veteran: I want you to know that you have an entire nation of more than 300 million people behind you,” the President said from the White House today. “You will never, ever be forgotten. We are with you all the way. I think you know that.”

President Trump’s call to action: It is time to end veteran suicide.
