8:13 pm
commence her role in this regard, and furthermore -- commence or it role -- commensurate role, furthermore with the refugees, there have been many challenges in the world. this will be a serious issue with japan and united states. but japan and the united states and the international community must work hand-in-hand. of course there are , disagreements. but we should not close down the dialogue just by pointing to the differences and ignoring common interests and goals. .e need to have a dialogue whatere are disagreements, is mostly desired by those are challenging the international order -- we should not close the

8:15 pm
world and region, the future of japan and the united states. thank you. pres. trump: thank you very much. we're going to be a few questions unless you don't want to ask any questions, if that's possible. where is the new york post? daniel? >> i am curious about yesterday's ruling in the ninth circuit court. has it caused you to rethink your use of executive power and how will you respond? will you sign new executive orders and perhaps a new travel ban? and mr. prime minister i am , curious to your reaction of america's withdrawal from the tpp. do you think that has weakened america's position in asia and how do you envision any kind of trade deal with the president working out? pres. trump: question was
8:16 pm
-- your question was unrelated to what we are here for, but i will answer it. we are going to keep our country safe. we are going to do what is necessary to keep our country safe. we have a decision that we think will be successful and it should not have taken this much time, because safety is a primary reason that i am standing here today. the security of our country. the voters thought i would give it the best security. so we will be doing something very rapidly having to do with additional security for our country. you will be seeing that sometime next week. in addition, we will go through the court process and ultimately i have no doubt that we will win that particular case. >> now, in the world, we are also facing the issues of refugees and terrorism. we need to work closely together on these global issues.
8:17 pm
japan has always played our own role. going forward, we would continue to work with international to execute our responsibility in a commensurate matter. and each of our countries has immigration control, as well as policies on immigration and refugees. those have to do with semantic affairs of the country, so i would refrain from making any comment. blake, fox. >> thank you, mr. president. i would like to pick up where daniel left off, if you don't mind. you said earlier this week that
8:18 pm
have learned a lot in the past two weeks that terrorism is a far greater threat than people understand, but we are going to take care of it." basically, you have learned information and now that your executive order is temporarily on hold, do you feel as confident now as you did at any point that you will be able to protect the homeland? and mr. prime minister, i would like to pick up about tpp. do you feel it is a mistake that the united states has at least signaled its intention to withdraw from the deal? thank you both. pres. trump: i feel totally confident that we will have tremendous security for the people of the united states. extreme vetting, which is a term i developed early in my campaign because i saw what is happening. while i have been president , which is for a very short
8:19 pm
time, i have learned tremendous things that you can only learn , frankly if you are in a , certain position, namely the president. and there are certainly threats to the country that i will not allow to happen. i can tell you we will not allow , that. so we will be going forward and continuing to do things that will make our country safe. it will happen rapidly and we will not allow people into our country who are looking to do harm to our people. we will allow lots of people into our country that will love our people and do good for our country. it is always going to be that way, at least during my administration, i can tell you that. >> on tpp, we are fully aware of president trump's decision.
8:20 pm
on economic issues, will be working with old -- relations,conomic how can we how can we develop and grow our relationship? about how we will work out the trade. i'm quite optimistic that the and results will be seen from that. now, we need to make sure it is a free and fair set of rules for the free trade regime. that was the reason for and the purpose of the tpp, that has not myself -- changed. i myself believe that. >> thank you. have a question for prime
8:21 pm
minister abbe. -- abe. for the automotive market in japan, as far as foreign exchange, there have been remarks discussing the discrepancy in your position. what were the discussions, were you able to narrow down the gap? and president trump has said that he will make the estates a -- the united states a great country. what is meant by the great country? and prime minister, what do you when you say that the united states is a great ally for you? >> for the trump administration the new genesis will be built , between japan and the u.s.. in awkward to put forth -- in ader to put form -- forward strong message, i have released a new framework for economic dialogue. we were able to agree on this.
8:22 pm
as far as other discussions we , will be having that during lunch. in any case, between president trump and myself, on u.s. and japan economic relations, we have already agreed that we will have vice president pence and the deputy prime minister discuss fully the economic relations between the two countries. and we are looking forward to good results ensuing from the debate between the experts. as for the foreign exchange, we will have the secretary treasury and minister continue close communication with the united states to continue to become a great nation. the role played by the estates -- the united states and the responsibility to go with it,
8:23 pm
the world over is filled with increasing uncertainty. states will become a great america and a good and strong ally that will be good for japan. we need to do this not only for our two nations, but to continue the peace and prosperity of asia-pacific and the united states will be even greater. we welcome that. pres. trump: thank you. i will say that -- you have seen it -- ever since i won the election and become the president-elect i have been , telling car companies and other companies, many companies, to come back to the united states. they have been coming back in. big announcements are going to be made over the next two or three at a time. some of you already know what those announcements are.
8:24 pm
we lost a lot of our factories and plants. those factories and plants will be coming back. jobs will be coming back to michigan and ohio, pennsylvania, north carolina and so many other places where we have lost so many jobs. those are the people who were so good to me and now i'm being good to them. and so we have had a tremendous number of announcements, we've had forward and general motors and general motors, many others intel made a major , announcement, they did that because what is happening with our tax structure which is going along very well. we are going to have some very big news over the next short. -- short period of time. but we are a nation of tremendous potential, the expression "make america great again," i will tell you it will be greater than ever before. and i just want to thank the
8:25 pm
prime minister for friendship. we developed a great friendship when we met in new york city at trump tower. we spoke for a long, long period of time. when i greeted him today, i was saying -- i shook hands but i grabbed him and hugged him because that is how we feel, we have a very, very good bond. very, very good chemistry. i will let you know the changes, but i don't think you will. -- it will. [laughter] pres. trump: i\ want to thank the prime minister for being here. we are going to be meeting your wife and i look forward to that. i want to thank everybody in the room. we are going to have a tremendous relationship, long-term relationship, of mutual benefit with japan. thank you all very much. thank you. yes, certainly. go ahead.
8:26 pm
>> i have a question for president trump. the obama administration had to and emphasizea asia china has taken a hard line , stance in the south china sea and north korea has armed the missiles and nuclear development. some countries in asia are concerned about the commitment of the united states in asia. so against this backdrop, as was mentioned earlier for the trump , for theation situations in asia, how would you respond to the increasing difficulty hearing? -- here? and president, you have repeatedly said about china taking on currency and foreign exchange policies that are not good for the united states. do you think that will change in the future?
8:27 pm
pres. trump: i had a very, very good conversation yesterday with the president of china. it was a very, very warm conversation. i think we are on the process of getting along very well. i think we will also be very much of a benefit to japan. so we had a very, very good talk last night. we discussed a lot of subjects. it was a long talk. we are working on that as we speak. we have conversations with various representatives in china. i believe that will all work out very well for everybody. china, japan, the united states, and everybody in the region. as far as the currency devaluation, we have been complaining about that for a long time.
8:28 pm
and i believe that we will all be eventually and probably much sooner than many understand or inc. -- think -- we will all be at a level playing field. that is the only way to spare. -- it is fair. that is the only way you can fairly compete in trade and other things. we will be on the field and we will all be working very hard to do work for the country. but it has to be fair. and we will make it fair. i think the united states is going to be an even bigger player then it is right now, by a lot, when it comes to trade. a lot of that will have to do with our tax policy which you , will be seeing in the not-too-distant future. right now nobody knows what , policy we have, we will have a very much incentive-based policy. we are working with congress, paul ryan, mitch mcconnell.
8:29 pm
i think people will be very, very impressed. and this also has a lot to do with business, we are also talking about health care, where we can get great health care for the country at a much reduced the peopleoth receiving the health care and the country, because the country is paying so much and obamacare, as you know is a complete , disaster. so we will end up with tremendous health care at a lower price and i think people are going to be extremely happy. difficult process, but once we get going -- and as you know, tom price was just approved a few hours ago. we finally have our secretary, now we get down to the final strokes. again i want to thank everyone , for being here. i want to thank mr. prime minister, what an honor. what a great honor it is. let's go to florida. [applause]
8:30 pm
8:31 pm
>> after the joint news conference, the prime minister and the president moved on to palm beach, florida. en route, the president was once asked again about his immigration order. pres. trump: hi everybody, hi. everything good?
