But the hour-long remarks were light on energy policy and heavy on stump speech material and off-script riffs, as Trump touched on everything from his love of trucks to his assessment of his potential 2020 rivals. The meandering speech came on a day when the president had already attacked a CNN anchor, endorsed a controversial World Series hero’s potential congressional bid and defended his parroting of a conspiracy theory surrounding the apparent suicide of his onetime friend Jeffrey Epstein.

WASHINGTON — President Trump announced on Tuesday that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and is preparing to reinstate In theory, the so-called “Iran deal” was supposed to protect the United States and our allies from the lunacy of an Iranian nuclear bomb, a weapon that

Here are some of Trump's most off-key comments:

On the supposed benefits of natural gas over renewable energy: “When the wind stops blowing, it doesn’t make any difference does it? Unlike those big windmills that destroy everybody’s property values, kill all the birds. One day the environmentalists are going to tell us what’s going on with that. And then all of a sudden it stops. The wind and the televisions go off. And your wives and husbands say ‘Darling, I want to watch Donald Trump on television tonight. But the wind stopped blowing and I can’t watch. There’s no electricity in the house, darling.'”

Sooo Boring!" Trump tweeted from aboard Air Force One. "The LameStream Media will die in the ratings and clicks with this guy. It will be over for them, not to mention the fact that our Country will do poorly with him.

Former President Barack Obama on Friday launched a direct attack on President Donald Trump during a speech at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Please give it up for Amaury once again for that outstanding introduction. I have a bunch of good That's not how things are supposed to work.

The president's speech on energy policy also made clear that he still doesn't know much about energy policy. But even putting all of these relevant details aside, let’s not miss the forest for the trees: Trump peddled discredited nonsense about energy policy during a speech devoted to energy policy.

On his construction chops: “I was a good builder. I built good, I love building, in fact I’m going to take a tour of the site.”

On doing some campaigning: “I’m going to speak to some of your union leaders to say ‘I hope you’re going to support Trump, OK?’ And if they don’t, vote ‘em the hell out of office because they’re not doing their job — it’s true.”

On his love of trucks: “I love cranes, I love trucks of all types. Even when I was a little boy at four years old, my mother would say, 'You love trucks.' I do, I always loved trucks, I still do. Nothing changes — sometimes you know you might become president, but nothing changes — I still love trucks. Especially when I look at the largest crane in the world, that’s very cool. You think I’ll get to operate it? We’ll put the media on it and I’ll give them a little ride, right?”

On pundits suggesting he might not leave office willingly: “Can you imagine if I got a fair press? I mean, we’re leading without it, can you imagine if these people treated me fairly? The election would be over. Have they ever called off an election before? Just said look just let’s go, go on, four more years. You wanna really drive them crazy, go to hashtag third term, hashtag fourth term, you’ll drive them totally crazy.”

Trump Takes Credit For Plant Announced 5 Years Before Presidency

Trump Takes Credit For Plant Announced 5 Years Before Presidency President Donald Trump gave a speech at a petrochemical plant under construction northwest of Pittsburgh Tuesday in which he took credit for the $6 billion facility first announced in 2012 - five years before he became president. "This never would have happened without me, without us," Trump said at the Royal Dutch Shell ethylene cracker plant in Potter Township, Beaver County. "Remember that, and remember that Pennsylvania has the best numbers they've ever had in the history of the state. That's for a very good reason. You know what that reason is? Hello, here I am.

From the get- go , it was clear Trump wasn’t even going to pretend to give the affair a patina of With that out of the way , he launched into a rant riddled with “alternative facts” about immigrants, voter Trump was seemingly referring to a group of Central-American migrants traveling through Mexico to

Trump attacks his opponents in Maryland speech Jump to media player President Trump railed against the inquiry into alleged collusion between his campaign and Russia. 'You weren't supposed to do that!' He went just a little off script . Here's a tiny flavour of what he said.

On Trump’s perceived trade imbalance with Japan: “They send us thousands and thousands — millions of cars, we send them wheat. Wheat. That’s not a good deal. And they don’t even want our wheat, they do it because they want us to at least feel that we’re OK, you know, they do it to make us feel good.” (This assertion is false.)

On the price tag of the presidency: “This thing is costing me a fortune, being president. Somebody said, 'Oh he might have rented a room to a man from Saudi Arabia for $500.' What about the $5 billion that I'll lose — you know, it’s probably gonna cost me, including, upside, downside, lawyers, because every day they sue me for something. These are the most litigious people. It’s probably costing me from $3 to 5 billion for the pleasure of being — and I couldn't care less, I don’t care. You know if you’re wealthy, it doesn't matter, I just want to do a great job.”

On his pledge to salvage manufacturing jobs: “You guys, I don’t know what the hell you’re gonna do. You don’t want to make widgets, right? You don’t want to make — do you want to learn how to make a computer? A little tiny piece of stuff... You put it with those big beautiful hands of yours like… You’re gonna take these big hands, gonna take this little tiny part. You’re gonna go home, ‘Alice this is a tough job.’ Nah, you want to make steel and you want to dig coal, that’s what you want to do!”

In other words, by today’s standards, going off script is just part of what makes a speech feel contemporary. And whether you agree with his words or not, the same is still true of Trump . “ Trump is going to speak to his audience and they will respect and appreciate anything he says,” says Smith.

He proceeded to reread the statement he initially gave in response to the protest, conveniently leaving out the part where he blamed “many sides”—both For a speech that began, ostensibly, as a call for unity, Trump ’s rally was filled with barbed attacks on all variety of people who he said had no place in

On the amount of the press at the event, at about a quarter to 3 in the afternoon: “That’s a lot people back there for like an 11 o’clock speech. That’s a lot of people.”

On the Oscars: “Like the Academy Awards during the day. It used to be — you know the Academy Awards is on hard times now, you know that right? Nobody wants to watch it. You know why? Because they started taking us on, everyone got tired of it. It’s amazing, that used to be second after the Super Bowl and then all of a sudden now it’s just another show, because people got tired of people getting up and making fools of themselves and disrespecting the people in this room and the people that won the election in 2016.”

On attacking Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden, potential 2020 rivals: “I did it very early with Pocahontas, I should have probably waited. She's staging a comeback on Sleepy Joe. I don't know who's gonna win, but we'll have to hit Pocahontas very hard again if she does win. But she’s staging a little bit of a comeback. What a group. Pocahontas and Sleepy Joe.”

On Mexico deploying soldiers to stem the flow of Central American migrants: “I want to thank Mexico, it’s incredible. We have close to 27,000, you think of that. We never had three — I think we had about two and a half soldiers, one was sitting down all the time. We had nobody.”
