The CIA Just Scored a Major Victory in Its War Against Trump
The slow burning coup against the president continues
by ANDREW DOBBS


On December 21 of last year I published a piece on Defiant called “The CIA-FBI Election Feud Looks a Lot Like Prelude to a Coup.” The article argued that U.S. security agencies were taking sides in domestic politics, that there was significant daylight between Trump and Vice President Mike Pence on these issues and that in other countries or circumstances we’d be anticipating a coup d’etat.

In the two months since then events have only reinforced my analysis. There is a dangerous, anti-democratic division deep within the US imperial state that threatens Donald Trump and his regime’s continued existence in a way that will not prevent the devastation he poses. It will accelerate and heighten it.

My coup theory was prescient. Last week, President Trump’s National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn, resigned after leaked intelligence indicated that he lied to Vice President Pence last year about his conversations with Russian diplomats.

Flynn was a notorious critic of the CIA, and the CIA hated him in turn — forcing him out as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency under President Obama. The leaks that did him in this time almost certainly came from the Agency.

This needs to be very clear: the CIA appears to have both removed a major critic of it within the administration and sent an unambiguous message about their own political position and capabilities. But they did so in a way that underscored the power and authority of Mike Pence, who appears to be closer to its politics than the president. All this underscores what I said in December about the risk of a coup.

Conventional wisdom has caught up to that analysis, and the most cynical elements of U.S. politics are actually low-key supporting just such a coup. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told Rachel Maddow that Trump should watch out because the deep state had “six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”

On the Right we have Bill Kristol, founder of the Weekly Standard and notorious pimp for American military aggression. Last week he tweeted “Obviously strongly prefer normal democratic and constitutional politics. But if it comes to it, prefer the deep state to the Trump state.”

These are only a couple of examples; the point is that the concept of a CIA-led coup against the duly — if unfortunately — elected President of the United States is now treated as a realistic possibility in American politics. When I wrote that piece I half-expected to look back in a couple of weeks and cringe at how off-base I was. Instead, I’m unsettled to see how closely I predicted things.

Since then, the divisions between the two agencies have become structural. On one hand Trump kept FBI Director James Comey in place. He even singled him out for praise at a White House event, joking “he’s become more famous than me” before literally embracing him and patting him on the back.

On the other hand Trump has battered the CIA. Trump went to the Agency’s headquarters in Virginia on the second day of his presidency, stood before its memorial to agents killed in action and spoke mostly about his own election victory and the size of his inauguration crowds. He made it all about him in front of a memorial to its war dead.

Speeches aside, the CIA’s formal power has also eroded under Trump. He removed its experienced director, James Clapper, and downgraded the position by taking it off the principals committee of the National Security Council. He replaced them, notoriously, with Steve Bannon.

This conflict could be resolved if the differences between the sides were merely philosophical. But there is a real conflict of interests occurring here. Both sides are committed to protecting the present ruling class, of course, but the distinct roles played by the CIA and FBI in the pursuit of those aims have produced ideological differences that create distinct political alliances not easily resolved.

The best way to understand these distinctions is as the difference between a cop and a soldier. The FBI is a police agency, and so its primary role is the suppression of internal enemies of the ruling class. Thanks to the FBI’s past suppression of working class and poor people’s political organizations, resistance by these enemies is typically disorganized and random.

The key strategy for keeping dissidents scattered is to justify a persistent state violence against “guilty until proven innocent” communities. The two main thrusts of this strategy today are the Drug War — which justifies mass incarceration targeting Black and Latino families in particular — and a multi-faceted characterization of non-white immigrants as threats to national security.

For Latin American immigrants this means the international dimension of the Drug War and manufactured crises around the Southern border; for Asian and African immigrants we have Islamophobia and the so-called War on Terror. All these police campaigns intersect to label all communities of color as criminals or terrorists of one sort or another.

On the other side of this, of course, is the assumption that white, native-born, Christians are safe but under attack. The FBI helps organize a national law enforcement network to reinforce the narrative. Trump rode to power on these very same messages, and the FBI’s cultural identification with them made the bureau open to collaboration with his campaign and now his presidency.

The CIA is a collection of soldiers. Troops in an empire of this sort have a different primary task — they exist to project the empire’s power and extract value from subject nations. The American strategy for accomplishing this has been to establish and sustain global military, political and economic hegemony.

Hegemony is one of those words that a lot of smart folks love to throw around but when you ask them to define it they resort to versions of “I know it when I see it.” Think of it as a dominance so extensive and unchallenged that it becomes common sense; it’s “just the way things are.” That’s how U.S. power has been for a couple of decades now.

The CIA knows that anywhere any other country can establish power apart from the United States people in that region — and around the world — can envision a world where America’s empire is not in charge. Even minimal, isolated alternatives to U.S. power threaten that strategy.

Trump is fucking with this program.
Most notable is his alliance with Russia, primary proponent of a “multi-polar” global order. His resulting skepticism of NATO is synonymous with a skepticism of U.S. global hegemony. Indeed, opponents of American rule the world over often use NATO as shorthand for U.S. militarism.

Also important are Trump’s recent high-profile meetings with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Abe is an arch-nationalist and advocate for Japan’s rearmament. Such a move would create a clear political pathway for Japanese withdrawal from America’s imperial sphere. Now there are many imperialists in the CIA who favor Japanese rearmament, but they recognize the sensitivity of the matter. Trump is clearly not playing any complex games of great power politics.

So what is he doing? Well, in the first place it appears that he may not have any idea and this is when the CIA would normally be pulling him aside to learn about the birds and bees and cluster bombs of how the U.S. reproduces its global “greatness.” Yet they do not seem to feel safe doing so because Trump’s ignorance is a willful one driven by his personal financial stake in getting rich off of deals cut with America’s rivals.

There’s that mystery stake in Rosneft, the Russian oil monopoly and newly secured trademark protections in China among many other opportunities to come. His daughter, still managing part of his business, met with him and Abe the first time around.

This is the contradiction between the cops at the FBI and the soldiers at the CIA — Trump himself. Normally their tasks dovetail perfectly. But right now the Trump demagogic appeal is advancing the FBI’s cultural nationalist strategy while his self-dealing is undermining the CIA’s project of unquestioned global hegemony.

The man is the problem, which suggests that the simplest solution will be the man’s removal.

So how does such a nightmare come to pass? The first step to removing someone’s power is to neutralize the key individuals and structures supporting them. Flynn was the first piece, and already Trump’s first choice for a replacement — Retired Vice Admiral Robert Harward — said fuck no. He could see where things were headed between the administration and the security state. Best to stay as far away as possible.

Getting at other internal supporters will mean more leaks and more anonymously sourced stories targeting them for discredit and disgrace. Behind the scenes the CIA and allies may also be engaging in extensive blackmail; the Flynn story had that subtle mention by The Washington Post’s source that the Kremlin could have blackmailed Flynn. The source had the information too, and so this hints at one of those “it’d be a shame if something were to happen to you” scenarios.

Trump has few external support structures — with one major exception I’ll get to in a moment — and so once key administration officials are neutralized Trump’s reign will be imperiled. His key institutional outside support comes from the finance sector, but there’s no reason to think that Pence would be any less helpful to them. Note that the dirt on Flynn was weeks old but only leaked after the Senate finally approved Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin — the bankers are assured of continuity regardless of what happens next.

The one exceptional element of all this is Trump’s deep support in the reactionary white middle class. They form the primary basis for U.S. imperialism and the audience for a reactionary media establishment that is generally impervious to the scandals breaking against the administration. Trump immerses himself in this media environment, a habit which only reinforces his native narcissism and makes him invulnerable to attempts to shame him.

The upshot of all this is that Trump will not resign of his own accord. His lifelong experience has been that when he wallows in mire that would shame any decent person his profile raises and he becomes more powerful. His more recent experience is that when all the smart people are certain his political life is over he wins anyway. There seem to be few, if any, circumstances that would drive him to give up power voluntarily.

If the CIA really is doing what sounded crazy in December and trying to eliminate the individual threat to its global strategy, it has limited options. One is to produce a scandal that leads to impeachment, but 19 senators would have to vote to convict. Most of these senators only have to keep the GOP base happy to keep their jobs, and it is hard to emphasize just how much this base will hate any impeachment push. The votes just won’t be there for this option.

That leaves either a marginalization in place — where Trump is still technically in power but de-fanged and isolated — or extralegal removal. The presidency has been empowered too much for the former option to be viable, leaving the latter. This would mean the final, undeniable, public death of the constitutional order, and securing it would necessitate a major public crackdown — unpredictable in its nature.

These are the sorts of things Chuck Schumer and BIll Kristol either welcome or can’t foresee. Trump’s reign must come to an end as quickly as possible, and precipitous or extralegal terminations of his rule are viable, exciting options. But they must be led by the people — this is a form of the democratic process, an extraordinary form that underlies all the others. The CIA’s vision is the precise opposite.

The good news is that the people of this country are starting to check and see what they are really capable of. Here in Austin, 20,000 public school students went on strike last Thursday to protest deportations. That’s one of literally thousands of examples of resistance popping off in this country right now — none of it needing the Democratic Party or elected politicians or well-heeled NGOs to run things. It’s something even the CIA can’t scheme around.

This is the hope for the future: a world without Trump, without a deep state, without white supremacy or empire or any of the other wicked institutions that made his rise possible. A world where democracy is not assassinated, but rather revived.

It’s a world defined by the one thing we can easily predict: defiance.

pa koliko sam ja cuo on je zapravo rekao da je pitanje consenta uzasno komplikovano te da su mnogi underage homoseksualci imali neku 'father figure' (sto bi reko pokojni djordj) koja im je pomogla na putu seksualnog samoostvarenja te da u tom kontekstu treba posmatrati i optuzbe za sexual abuse u katolickoj crkvi (uz konstataciju da ocu majklu moze zahvaliti za svoje oralne vestine). 

e sada - taj odnos mladi/stari ljubavnik nije tu bezveze vec je posledica potpune izopstenosti homoseksualnosti i koja onda poprima gotovo oblike zavere ili tajnog ucenja. milo de milo zapravo podrzava bagru koja i ne dozvoljava tinejdzerima da istrazuju svoju seksualnost i da zavise od 'inicijastickih' vestina starijeg prijatelja.

Free access to four articles by newly appointed US National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster.


Date: 21 February 2017

By the Survival editors


H.R. McMaster has a long association with Survival, including as one of our Contributing Editors, in which role he has been writing regular book reviews on war, conflict and the military.
In light of his appointment by President Donald Trump as National Security Advisor, we thought it would be helpful to lift the paywall for four of his longer contributions to the journal. We are grateful to our publishers, Taylor and Francis, who have made the following articles free-access until the end of March 2017.

‘On War: Lessons to Be Learned’, Survival, vol. 50, no. 1, February–March 2008, pp. 19–30.
Leaders should also abandon the belief that wars can be waged efficiently with a minimalist approach to the commitment of forces and other resources. The belief that progress toward achieving objectives in Afghanistan and Iraq could be achieved by doing just enough to establish security and help nascent governments and security forces assume responsibility for ongoing conflicts betrayed linear thinking, neglected the interaction with determined enemies, ignored other sources of instability, and was based on a misunderstanding of the nature of those conflicts. Consequences of linear thinking in Afghanistan and Iraq included overestimating indigenous forces’ capabilities, underestimating the enemy and the associated expectation that the coalition could soon reduce force levels and shift to an exclusively advisory effort. A short‐term approach to long‐term problems generated multiple short‐term plans that often confused activity with progress.
Read more here.

‘The Uncertainties of Strategy’, Review Essay, Survival, vol. 57, no. 1, February–March 2015, pp. 197–208.
It is in their inherent moral components that recent Western strategies may be deficient. What percentage of the populations in countries engaged in the 14-year effort in Afghanistan could even name the three main Taliban groups with whom their soldiers have been engaged? The professed war-weariness among populations who have sent only a small percentage of their sons and daughters to fight in recent wars may derive from a failure to communicate effectively what is at stake in those wars and explain why the efforts are worthy of the risks, resources and sacrifices necessary to sustain the strategy.
Read more here.

‘Photography at War’, Review Essay, Survival, vol. 56, no. 2, April–May 2014, pp. 187–98.
In her introduction, Tucker observes that photographs ‘have been essential in gaining public support for war efforts and in the loss of that support’ (p. 2). They will remain so, but it seems that editors' ability to use the selection of photographs to influence public opinion will diminish as the means of distributing wartime photographs continue to proliferate. The public's access to wartime photographs, and thoughtful presentations of wartime photographs as in War/Photography, might not only help resurrect the value that societies place on virtuous sacrifice in war, but also help bridge what many see as a growing gap between soldiers and their societies, especially as so many in the US and European armed forces return to civilian life after service in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Read more here.

‘Ancient Lessons for Today’s Soldiers’, Review Essay, Survival, vol. 50, no. 4, August–September 2008, pp. 177–90.
Beyond the utilitarian need to maintain ethical standards, if Western soldiers compromise their standards (and the standards of the societies they represent) when confronting terrorists, it may be argued they have already lost. Values education can ring hollow unless it is pursued in a way that provides context and demonstrates relevance. Robinson's Military Honour and the Conduct of War, Sherman's Stoic Warriors, and Coker's The Warrior Ethos provide that context and demonstrate the relevance of ethics to war, warriors and the societies that warriors pledge to serve.

Trampara is back on track što se tiče ispunjavanja obećanja:


WASHINGTON — President Trump has directed his administration to enforce the nation’s immigration laws more aggressively, unleashing the full force of the federal government to find, arrest and deport those in the country illegally, regardless of whether they have committed serious crimes.

Documents released on Tuesday by the Department of Homeland Security revealed the broad scope of the president’s ambitions: to publicize crimes by undocumented immigrants; strip such immigrants of privacy protections; enlist local police officers as enforcers; erect new detention facilities; discourage asylum seekers; and, ultimately, speed up deportations.

The new enforcement policies put into practice language that Mr. Trump used on the campaign trail, vastly expanding the definition of “criminal aliens” and warning that such unauthorized immigrants “routinely victimize Americans,” disregard the “rule of law and pose a threat” to people in communities across the United States.
Despite those assertions in the new documents, research shows lower levels of crime among immigrants than among native-born Americans.

The president’s new immigration policies are likely to be welcomed by some law enforcement officials around the country, who have called for a tougher crackdown on unauthorized immigrants, and by some Republicans in Congress who have argued that lax enforcement encourages a never-ending flow of unauthorized immigrants.
But taken together, the new policies are a rejection of the sometimes more restrained efforts by former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush and their predecessors, who sought to balance protecting the nation’s borders with fiscal, logistical and humanitarian limits on the exercise of laws passed by Congress.

“The faithful execution of our immigration laws is best achieved by using all these statutory authorities to the greatest extent practicable,” John F. Kelly, the secretary of homeland security, wrote in one of two memorandums released on Tuesday. “Accordingly, department personnel shall make full use of these authorities.”

The immediate impact of that shift is not yet fully known. Advocates for immigrants warned on Tuesday that the new border control and enforcement directives would create an atmosphere of fear that was likely to drive those in the country illegally deeper into the shadows.

Administration officials said some of the new policies — like one seeking to send unauthorized border crossers from Central America to Mexico while they await deportation hearings — could take months to put in effect and might be limited in scope.

For now, so-called Dreamers, who were brought to the United States as young children, will not be targeted unless they commit crimes, officials said on Tuesday.
Mr. Trump has not yet said where he will get the billions of dollars needed to pay for thousands of new border control agents, a network of detention facilities to detain unauthorized immigrants and a wall along the entire southern border with Mexico.

But politically, Mr. Kelly’s actions on Tuesday serve to reinforce the president’s standing among a core constituency — those who blame unauthorized immigrants for taking jobs away from citizens, committing heinous crimes and being a financial burden on federal, state and local governments.

And because of the changes, millions of immigrants in the country illegally now face a far greater likelihood of being discovered, arrested and eventually deported.
“The message is: The immigration law is back in business,” said Mark Krikorian, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which supports restricted immigration. “That violating immigration law is no longer a secondary offense.”

Lawyers and advocates for immigrants said the new policies could still be challenged in court. Maricopa County in Arizona spent years defending its sheriff at the time, Joseph Arpaio, in federal court, where he was found to have discriminated against Latinos.

And courts in Illinois, Oregon, Pennsylvania and several other states have rejected the power given to local and state law enforcement officers to hold immigrants for up to 48 hours beyond their scheduled release from detention at the request of federal authorities under a program known as Secure Communities, which Mr. Trump is reviving.
“When you tell state and local police that their job is to do immigration enforcement,” said Omar Jadwat, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, “it translates into the unwarranted and illegal targeting of people because of their race, because of their language, because of the color of their skin.”

Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, said on Tuesday that the president wanted to “take the shackles off” of the nation’s immigration enforcers. He insisted that the new policies made it clear that “the No. 1 priority is that people who pose a threat to our country are immediately dealt with.”


In fact, that was already the policy under the Obama administration, which instructed agents that undocumented immigrants convicted of serious crimes were the priority for deportation. Now, enforcement officials have been directed to seek the deportation of anyone in the country illegally.

“Under this executive order, ICE will not exempt classes or categories of removal aliens from potential enforcement,” a fact sheet released by the Department of Homeland Security said, using the acronym for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “All of those present in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to immigration arrest, detention, and, if found removable by final order, removal from the United States.”

That includes people convicted of fraud in any official matter before a governmental agency and people who “have abused any program related to receipt of public benefits.”
The policy also expands a program that lets officials bypass due process protections such as court hearings in some deportation cases.

Under the Obama administration, the program, known as “expedited removal,” was used only when an immigrant was arrested within 100 miles of the border and had been in the country no more than 14 days. Now it will include all those who have been in the country for up to two years, no matter where they are caught.

“The administration seems to be putting its foot down as far as the gas pedal will go,” said Heidi Altman, policy director for the National Immigrant Justice Center, a Chicago-based group that offers legal services to immigrants.

In the documents released on Tuesday, the Department of Homeland Security is directed to begin the process of hiring 10,000 immigration and customs agents, expanding the number of detention facilities and creating an office within Immigration and Customs Enforcement to help families of those killed by undocumented immigrants.

The directives would also revive a program that recruits local police officers and sheriff’s deputies to help with deportation, effectively making them de facto immigration agents. The effort, called the 287(g) program, was scaled back during the Obama administration.

The program faces resistance from many states and dozens of so-called sanctuary cities, which have refused to allow their law enforcement workers to help round up undocumented individuals. In New York, Mayor Bill de Blasio in a statement on Tuesday pledged the city’s cooperation in cases involving “proven public safety threats,” but vowed that “what we will not do is turn our N.Y.P.D. officers into immigration agents.”

Under the new directives, the agency would no longer provide privacy protections to people who are not American citizens or green card holders. A policy established in the last days of the Bush administration in January 2009 provided some legal protection for information collected by the Department of Homeland Security on nonresidents.

The new policies also target unauthorized immigrants who smuggle their children into the country, as happened with Central American children seeking to reunite with parents living in the United States. Under the new directives, such parents could face deportation or prosecution for smuggling or human trafficking.

Officials said that returning Central American refugees to Mexico to await hearings would be done only in a limited fashion, and only after discussions with the government of Mexico.

Mexican officials said on Tuesday that such a move could violate Mexican law and international accords governing repatriation, and immigrants’ advocates questioned Mexico’s ability to absorb thousands of Central Americans in detention centers and shelters.

Highlights of Reuters interview with Trump

Here are some of the highlights of the Reuters interview with U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday.

ON HIS DECEMBER TWEET SAYING THE UNITED STATES SHOULD EXPAND ITS NUCLEAR CAPABILITY

"We've fallen behind on nuclear weapon capacity. And I am the first one that would like to see ... nobody have nukes, but we’re never going to fall behind any country even if it’s a friendly country, we’re never going to fall behind on nuclear power. And I did tweet that. It would be wonderful, a dream would be that no country would have nukes, but if countries are going to have nukes, we’re going to be at the top of the pack.”

ON NEW START DEAL WITH RUSSIA

"It's a one-sided deal like all other deals we make. It’s a one-sided deal. It gave them things that we should have never allowed. ... Just another bad deal that the country made, whether it’s START, whether it’s the Iran deal, which is one of the bad deals ever made. Our country only made bad deals, we don’t make good deals. So we’re going to start making good deals.”

ON RUSSIA'S DEPLOYMENT OF A CRUISE MISSILE IN VIOLATION OF ARMS CONTROL TREATY

“To me, it’s a big deal ... If I meet (Putin), if and when we meet, I would bring it up. It’s a big deal. Because it’s a violation of an agreement that we have.”

ON CHINESE MILITARY ACTIVITY IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA

"I know exactly what's going on between China and North Korea and everybody else. But I don't like talking about military strategy in newspapers ... I'm not liking it. This didn't take place under the Trump administration, this took place under the Obama administration. Many things took place that should not have been allowed. One of them is the building of a massive, you know, massive military complex in the middle of the South China Sea. And don't forget I've only been here for four weeks. This is something that took place and has been started three years ago and you were in a much better negotiating position three years ago. I am not happy about it."

ON ALLEGED CURRENCY MANIPULATION BY CHINA

“I think they’re grand champions at manipulation of currency. So I haven’t held back. We’ll see what happens.”

ON CHINA HALTING COAL IMPORTS FROM NORTH KOREA

"Well, we appreciate that. You know, I have a very, very good, I’ve had very good phone calls with the president, President Xi, and I’ve had very, very good talks with him, and the call is a start. But we have a very big problem and a very dangerous problem for the world with North Korea. ... I think China has tremendous control over North Korea. Whether they say so or not is up to them, but they have tremendous control over North Korea. I think they could solve the problem very easily if they want to.”

ON NORTH KOREA'S MISSILE PROGRAM

“It’s very dangerous and something should have been done about it years ago. It’s very dangerous and very unacceptable. ... And very unfair to Japan.”

ON TALK OF ACCELERATING MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM FOR JAPAN AND SOUTH KOREA

"There's talks of a lot more than that. We’ll see what happens. But it’s a very dangerous situation, and China can end it very quickly in my opinion. ... It’s one of many things that can be done. Missile defense is one of many things that can be done.”

ON WHETHER MEETING WITH KOREAN LEADER KIM JONG UN IS A POSSIBILITY

“I guess ... I would never say no. It may be very late. It’s very late in the picture right now. ... We’re very angry at what he’s done, and frankly this should have been taken care of during the Obama administration.”

ON THE BORDER ADJUSTMENT TAX PROMOTED BY REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS

“It could lead to a lot more jobs in the United States. ... I certainly support a form of tax on the border because everybody else does. We’re the only country, we’re one of the very few countries, possibly the only country, that has no border tax. And that’s not a tax to the consumer, because that’s going to be a tax to companies and it’s going to be a tax to other countries much more so than it is to the consumer. That’s a tax to other countries. And what will happen is, don’t forget there is no tax if we make our product in the United States. So I don’t consider it a tax. That’s a tax if companies are buying their product outside of the United States. But ... if they make their product in the United States, there is no tax. So what is going to happen is companies are going to come back here, they’re going to build their factories and they’re going to create a lot of jobs and there’s no tax.”

ON THE TARGET FOR THE CORPORATE TAX RATE

“We’re going to have a corporate tax cut ... anywhere from 15 to 20 percent (as a target for the corporate tax rate). ... We're going to have other things that are very good and we’re going to have a tremendous regulatory cut because the regulations are piled up on top of each other and you’ll have many regulations for the same thing within different industries and it’s out of control. The regulations in this country are out of control. And it makes it hard for businesses to even open in the United States. We’re going to get rid of a lot of the unnecessary regulations.”

ON TAX REFORM AND OBAMACARE

"We're going to submit legislation. We’re going to be working with Congress to do legislation, yes. .... We're mandated to do the healthcare first. We have to. And that's for budgetary reasons. So the healthcare will come first. It's moving along really well. I would say before the middle of March. ... We have a very, very good healthcare plan which will give great healthcare to great numbers of people. We have to also remember, Obamacare is a disaster. It doesn't work. It just doesn't work. So we have a plan that will be a far better plan which will cost people less money, which will cost our country less money also 'cause Obamacare is very expensive for the country. And we will be submitting sometime during the month of March. ... It'd be repeal and replace. ... The tax reform comes immediately thereafter."

ON THE ECONOMY AND BUDGET DEFICITS

"The economy, we have close to 100 million people that are not working. We're going to get the economy revving again through meetings like I had today with the biggest companies in the world and the biggest manufacturers in the world, through tax reform, and through regulatory reform, and it will take a little period of time, but yeah, we're going to have, I mean, we had massive deficits under Obama, under President Obama, massive deficits, and until it gets kicked in, there'll be some deficits but something which we can very easily handle."

ON MEXICO AND THE NAFTA TRADE DEAL

"We have a $70 billion trade deficit with Mexico, which is unacceptable. Unacceptable. On top of the $70 billion, many of our jobs and companies have fled to Mexico, and that, and they sell their product back in the United States. It's just not acceptable. So, hopefully, we'll be able to work something out with Mexico, we'll see. Maybe we will, maybe we won't. ... We have the right to do a lot of things that I haven't done yet. We have a lot of rights that people don't know about and they never did know about until I came along."

ON THE TWO-STATE SOLUTION IN ISRAEL

"I like the concept of the two-state solution. People have been talking about it for so many years now, it so far hasn’t worked. But I am satisfied with whatever makes both parties happy."

ON SUPPORTING THE EUROPEAN UNION AS A GOVERNING BODY?

“I do, sure. I have very good relations with the EU. But I thought that the UK would pull out of Brexit and I was right. ... But the EU, I’m totally in favor of it. I think it’s wonderful, if they’re happy. If they’re happy – I’m in favor of it.”

ON NATO MEMBERS PAYING 2 PCT OF GDP FOR THEIR OWN DEFENSE

"Remember the first time I talked about NATO, I said they all owe money? The first time anyone ever asked me a question about NATO ... I said two things: It’s obsolete because it doesn’t cover terrorism. They have now opened up a division to cover terrorism, solely because of me. And experts on NATO that do nothing but study it said, 'You know, Trump is right.' And I knew nothing about NATO, I mean, I knew very little about NATO. ... But you watch what’s going to happen. They’re paying. They’re paying big league. ... They owe a lot of money. Many countries owe a lot money. Number one, 2 percent is a low number, and number two, only five countries are paid up.”
