President Trump, surrounded by critics at the G7 summit, shined like no president has in a long time. His assertion of Power was clear and strategical.
While the majority of the media refuses to give Trump any proper credit. Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney has a message for Americans.
“No matter what you read and hear from the media, this G-7 was all about Trump re-aligning the world — reshaping the world economy with America’s interests first and foremost,” said Varney on Fox Nation’s “My Take.”
After President Trump’s news conference, at the conclusion of the summit on Monday, CNN’s Jim Acosta said, “I think perhaps one of the biggest headlines coming out of this press conference that we just witnessed here in France is that the President would not be pinned down on this question of climate change.”
Varney said that analysis misses the point. “Trade was the headline issue … A deal with Japan — they will import a lot more of our agricultural product. Britain gets a major trade deal after Brexit, and there’s dialogue with Germany on car tariffs as well, but the most important — China,” stressed Varney.
At the press conference Monday, President Trump said, “China wants to make a deal. And I tell this to President Xi [Jinping] who I really respect … I told him very strongly, I said ‘Look, you’re making $500 billion a year and stealing our intellectual property…We can’t make a 50-50 deal … If it’s not better, I don’t want to do business.”
Varney believes that it is time for America’s European allies to get on board with the President’s agenda. “Europeans are frankly scared of America. Their economies are sinking. They’ve entered the fantasy land of negative interest rates. Their money is pouring over here, and they just don’t know what to do. My advice — jump on the Trump train and quit whining about Iran and climate change,” advised Varney.
Trump was then prompted to answer a question regarding his relationship with Putin.
One reporter in France then questioned Trump as to whether it would be politically damaging in 2020 for him to welcome Russian President Vladimir Putin back to the G7 summit during America’s upcoming hosting of the next summit.
Trump took the chance to respond by showing us why Americans elected him and why they’ll do so again – he’s more than just a politician.
“I don’t care about ‘politically,’” Trump replied. “A lot of people don’t understand this, I ran one election and I won — happened to be for president.”
Trump then took the moral high road, adding that no matter the outcome of 2020, he would do the right thing. He also said that he is not basing his current decisions as president towards assuring himself a reelection and is instead – again – focused on doing the right thing.
“I’m going to run another election, I think I’m winning based on polls that we see, whether I win or not, I have to do the right thing,” he said. “I don’t do things for political reasons.”
Throughout his presidency, Trump has acted on his campaign promises despite many things remaining unpopular with the global elites.
He killed the Iran nuclear deal, despite many world leaders and advisers begging him to allow it to continue. The president also withdrew from the Paris Climate deal and from the Trans-pacific Partnership trade deal proposed by former President Barack Obama.
Trump defended his actions against China on trade and his willingness to allow Russian President Vladimir Putin back into the G7 summit of world leaders.
“I do nothing for politics,” he said. “I know a lot of you are going to smile about that, I do nothing for politics, I do what’s right and people like what I do.”
