[Pres Trump Response About Sec Pompeo’s Dog Walker Sounds So Stupid]
[Reporter:] And then, Mr. President, Secretary Pompeo was reportedly under investigation both for having staffers do personal errands, like walking his dog and picking up his dry cleaning, and concerns that he may have subverted the will of Congress with Saudi — deals with — Saudi arms deals. Are you concerned that he may have made this request to avoid an investigation (inaudible)?
[President Trump:] Well, I don’t know anything about it. I heard about it the same time maybe you heard about it. I don’t know anything about it. I mean, you mean he’s under investigation because he had somebody walk his dog from the government? I don’t know.
[Reporter:] Are you worried (inaudible)?
[President Trump:] It doesn’t sound — I don’t think it sounds like that important. I mean, you have a man that’s supposed to be — and he’s a brilliant guy, number one at West Point, number one at Harvard, I believe — Harvard Law School — or close. And — but he was number one at West Point. Number one at Harvard Law School, or very close to number one. And they’re bothered because he’s having somebody walk his dog, is you’re telling me? I didn’t know that. I didn’t hear that. I didn’t know about an investigation.
But this is what you get with the Democrats. Here’s a man supposed to be negotiating war and peace with major, major countries, with weaponry like the world has never seen before. And the Democrats and the fake news media — they’re interested in a man who is walking their dog. And maybe he’s busy and maybe he’s negotiating with Kim Jong Un — okay? — about nuclear weapons, so that he’d say, “Please, could you walk my dog? Do you mind walking my dog? I’m talking to Kim Jong Un.” Or “I’m talking to President Xi about paying us for some of the damage they’ve caused to the world and to us. Please walk my dog.” To who? A Secret Service person or somebody, right?
I don’t know. I think this country has a long way to go. They — the priorities are really screwed up when I read this.
Now, I don’t know anything about the investigation, but you’re just telling me about walking a dog. And what did you say? Doing dishes?
[Reporter:] Saudi arms deals, sir.
[President Trump:] What Saudi arms deals? Explain.
[Reporter:] Congress passed a law to restrict sales to Saudi Arabia over certain arms out of concern —
[President Trump:] Yeah?
[Reporter:] — over their use in the Yemeni crisis. So the question is whether Secretary Pompeo tried to subvert the deal with actions that he may have taken (inaudible).
[President Trump:] I don’t think so. I mean, I think that when somebody pays us a fortune for, you know, arms, we should get the deal done. I will tell you that. I don’t — I don’t know what you’re talking about.
I know this: that we have countries that want to buy our arms, and we make it so difficult for them that they end up going to Russia and China. And under my administration, if they’re friendly countries, I try and make it as easy as possible. If they want to buy our fighter jets, and if they want to give us billions and billions of dollars — and they have other alternatives, including China, Russia, and others — I think we should make it as easy as possible for them, and we should take the jobs and take the money because it’s billions of dollars.
And in past administrations, they waited so long that people wouldn’t even want to do business with us. And one of the things that we’ve done, and we make the greatest equipment in the world by far, and especially now under this administration because we’ve upped the scale a lot, as you know, and we bought a lot. We’ve totally rearmed our military — $1.5 trillion.
But if somebody wants to give us billions of dollars to buy an airplane or a number of airplanes and missiles, and all of the other things that we make better than anybody in the world, we should take the money and we should make the deals fast. I would certainly say that.
[Reporter:] Even if it leads to human rights abuses?
[President Trump:] Why don’t you take your mask off? You know, you’re — just for a second, please.
[Reporter:] Even if they —
[President Trump:] Don’t worry about Jeff. Jeff, why don’t you move out of his way so he doesn’t infect you, please?
[Reporter:] Sure. Even if they —
[President Trump:] I don’t want you to become infected.
[Reporter:] Even if it results in human rights abuses? That was Congress’s concern with these (inaudible).
[President Trump:] Human rights?
[President Trump:] I don’t know. That, I don’t know. I mean, you know, you’re telling me something that I never heard of. Now you’re talking about human rights abuses. You’ll figure something out, I’m sure.
Look, he’s a high-quality person — Mike. He’s a very high quality — he’s a very brilliant guy. And now I have you telling me about dog walking, washing dishes. And you know what? I’d rather have him on the phone with some world leader than have him wash dishes, because maybe his wife isn’t there or his kids aren’t there. You know. What are you telling me? It’s terrible. It’s so stupid. You know how stupid that sounds to the world? Unbelievable.
