speak to and i think that hopefully we'll get lucky but maybe that won't happen. but we're prepared. wand to do this because nikki haley, ambassador to the united nations, has been very special to me. she's done an incredible job. she's a fantastic person very importantly, but she also is hmebody that gets it. she been at the united nations from the beginning with us, right from the beginning and woed with us so the campaign. it's been really a long time, very intense. the told me probably six months ago, maybe a end of the year at the end of a two-year period, i want time off, take a little break. she's been a very successful novernor of south carolina for eight years and t she did this and this was possibly more ldtense with what's going on in the w and very dangerous and
a lot of things. but she's done a fantastic job and we've done a ftastic jobs together. we solved a lot of problems. at the beginning north korea was a massive problem and now we're moving along. it's moving along really .nice i can speak for secretary of state mike pompeo. he thinks the world of nikki. e're all happy for you in -- way but we hate to lose hopefully you'll be coming back at some point. maybe in a different capacity, can you have your pick. t i just want to let you know. so at the end of the year, nikki will be leaving and we'll be in constant touch.en er you have any idea, you'll call me you know all the players. she got to know the players, china, russia,india. she knows everybody on a very
first-name basis and they like her, except for maybe a couple, which is normal. they can't all like you. t they do. and maybe more importantly they respect her. so, nikki, iust wand to tell you that we will miss you. we'll be speakingim all the but we will miss you nevertheless and you have done a fantastic job. thank you very much. >> thank you. i want to say, first of all, i want to thank the president for just allowing us to come out and talk to you this way. it has been the honor of a lifetime i said i am such a lucky girl to havebl been to lead the state that raised me and to serve a country i love so search has really been a blessing and i want to thank you for that. but i'm most excited. look at the two years, look at what has happened in two years teth the ustates on foreign policy. ow the united states is respected. countries may not like what we do but they respt what we do.
they no that if we say we're going to do something, we follow it through and the president proves that, ihetherwas with the chemical weapons in syria, nato, saying other have to pay their share, whether it was the trade deals, they get that the president means tbusiness and they folloough with that. but if you look at just these two years at the u.n., we've cut 1.3 billion in the u.n. budget. sudan, an arms embargo, which was a long time coming.e th north korean packages, the largest in a generation, done in a way that we can denuclearize north korea, a i think you look at the anti-israel bias and the strengths and courage that the president showed in moving
the embassynd showing the rest of the world, we will put our embassy where we want to put our embassy. all of those this have made a huge difference in the u.s. standing but i can tell you that the u.s. is strong again and the u.s. is strong in a way that should make all americans very proud. i do want to say that it's not just the president iant to thank. the family in general, the first lady has been nothing but very, very kind to me. i can't say enough good things about jared and ivanka. jared is suc a hidden genius that no one understands. i mean, to redo the nafta deal the way he did. what i've done working with him on the middle ea peace plan it is so unbelievably well done. and ivanka has been just a great friend and they do a lot of things behind the scenes that wish more people knew about. we're a better country because they e in thisadministration. i also just have to say
certainly thank to you my family. michael is a saint and my two little ones, i adore them. and the team sacrificed a lot and they have a lot of heart and anallyd to make america proud. with that, i'm not leaving until yearend of the my goal is that we make sure everything is in good place for the next person to come in. i'm proud t have been part of the team. i don't have anything set to ere i'm going to go. i was governor for six years and we dealt with t hurricane, a thousand year flood ash church shooting, a school, shooti there was a lot. to come in and do two years of russia, iran and north korea, it's been eight years intense time and i'm a believer of term limits. i believe tou have be
selfless enough to know when y have to step aside and let the next person in. for a of you asking about 2020, no, i'm not running in 2020 but what i can tell y is i will supporting this one. >> reporter: you have a list of accomplishments. why would you want to leave that behind? is it a personal situation because you've been away from your family for snowing. >> my family is very supportive. there's no personal reasons but i think it's very important f government officials to understand when it's time to enep april side. i have g everything i've got these last eight years and i do think that sometimes it's goo to rotate in other people who can put that samnd energy power into it. a lot of people are going to want to say there's a lot of reasons why i'm leaving. the truth is i want to make sure that this administration, the president, hassthe stron
person to fight. it was a blessing to go into the u.n. with bod armor every day and defend america and always do that. i'll never tly step aside from fighting for our country but i think it time. >> why make the announcement now as opposed to after mid terms? >> well, nikki is goi to be staying until the end of the year, which will be just about two years. i just think and as nikki wassp king, i was thinking when we came into office, it was almost inevitable in t minds of many that we were going to war with north korea. if you ask president obama, i'm sure he'll tell you that wa h b fa biggest problem when we sat and met right here. lt thatked like a real problem.d iran loo like a real problem. it was a question of when would th take over the middle east prior to my coming here.s now iran fighting for their lives. they've got riots in all their cities.
it's blowing up their inflation, their economy is in tatters and at some point they'll probably come and want t make a real deal. the ridiculous deal they made was unacceptable to me. but what a difference between iran whe we firstcame, i'd like to say the day before we came and also if you look at north korea, there was a deal that there was something that -- it was aotentially devastating problem and now the relationships are very good. secretary of state mike momio just left, had a great meeting, also was in china, had a really ve good meeting with north korea and chairman kim and we've just made a lotes of pro on so many other front also. and i think the world, as nikki said, the world is really respect the united states again, much more so than they have in
many, many decades. we are respected again i can tell you. and people want to be on our side. even if you look at the votes in the united nations,otes that o would normally go no tes, we're gottietting very strong v now. i wanted to thank nikki. whenou write it out on a piece of paper that ambassador haley ll be leaving, people say what's going on? this is right way to do it. when yy think someb has done a terrific job, i felt this was an appropriate way of doing and we both liked it. i just want to thank the ambassador. i just want to thank nikki, okay. >> reporter:ou who are thinking about for a successor? >> a number of people would l.e to do it's a great position. i think it's become maybe a more
glamorous position than it was two years ago. i wonder why. she's made it a more blglamorou position and a more important position. i' be talking also to nikki about that and to the general about that and to my sfaiy staf. we have many people that are very, very nterested in doing it. >> reporter: are you frustrated by t actual -- >> no you're talking about north korea. are you with? >> reporter: [ inaudible ]. >> who? >> it's amazing the med tiaheya thing and what we in three months of negotiation?
you have no rockets flying, no missiles flying, they're closing up different areas of north korea. we're getting the remains back of our great heros, we got our hostages back and i didn't pay $1.8 billion like the previous administration, i paid nothing. but i havee agreed to and i have agreed to spend time. but how long has it been since left singapore? it was three months or so. that's the media saying how can wee negative? i think it's amazing. you have no nuclear tests, no rockets a a very good relationship with chairman kim, which is very important. i like him, he likes me, the relationships good. mike pompeo had a ry, very good meeting. i spoke to him at length
yesterday. he'll be coming back, he'll be backtonight. so i think we've made incredible progress. beyond incredible. some of the press really covers itccately and right but some of the press really doesn't. john. >> do you want to take this opportunity to tell us when your next meeting with kim will be? >> well, they're setting up the meeting and we'e announcing that probably a different lotion. singapore was fantastic. but we'll probably be a different location.ld >> w you get him to mar-a-lago? >> that would be fantasti i thinke would like that. people doesn't realize the importance of the first meeting. we said point number one denuclearization. for some reason t press doesn't pick that up. that was actually point number
one. they've agreed to denuclearization. and theynue to agree. they continue. we haven't removed sanctions, as you know people said what have we done? we haven't removed sangwctions. have very big sanctions. > >> any chance it could be on u.s. soil? >> that's a two-way street. on their soil also. i think the country of north korea is going to be a very successful country. it's going to incredibly economically certainlif success. i want to make i that way. other countries, entrepreneurs, banks, they're calling, wanting to go there and wanng to invest at some point. when chairman kim makes that decision, i think he's going to
unleash something that's going to be spectacular, really spectacular. i think he knows it and that's one of the reasons we're having very successful nversations. >> reporter: when will ambassador hal be leaving? >> i would say we'll name a successor within the next two or three weeks. maybe sooner. >> reporte mr. president -- [ inaudible ]. >> i have not. no, i haven't. but i will bee at s point. i know nothing right now. i know what everybody else does, nothing. >> reporter: what's your response to shillarngclinton saast night's swearing in of judge kavanaugh was -- >> i s guess never got it.
that's why she lost. >> reporter: what's your prediction for gop and how's your stamina? >> if you people saw a 5% dropoff, you would say there's something wrong with the president. ing to make a big announcement tonightn iowa. we're going to be making a very big announcement. i have to say the farmers are so thrilled with usmca, the new agreemen i don't use the word nafta because nafta was a disaster for our country. il lostons and millions of jobs, thousands and thousands of factories a plants and b for farmers. you look what happened. farmers over the last 1ea have only gone down. now they're going too up. we just opened up mexico, just opened up it's great for our farmers. i'm going to iowa bnight.
