More quotes from the presidents pool sprayas always please check everything I have sent against the final transcript:

On trade, the president said he has powerful trade policies and told business leaders some of you probably love them and a couple of you probably dont because youre on the wrong side of the border.

But if youre from this country, youre loving whats happening. The steel industry, as an example, is one of the hot industries of the world right now. Whats happened to steel in the United States, where we have plants opening up literally on a daily basis. Nobody thought that would be possible.

As you know were doing record, and close to record, GDP. Nobody thought would be anywhere above, even close to 2, and were at 4.1. And I think were going much higher. And as trade deals come in, we can go much, much higher.

Coming back to the topic a minute later, he said, We anticipate this next quarter to be, this is just an estimate, but already theyre saying it could be in the fives.

I think were gonna be, very shortly in the fives. Again, numbers that people wouldnt have believed, I really think we can go much higher than in the fives, once we get trade deals that are rational and sane and good for our country. And not even good for our country, just fair for our country.

He brought up drug companies, saying he wanted to thank Pfizer and numerous drug companies for cutting the increase back to nothing after he said he wasnt happy about it, and they heard that.

They never did that before. They asked for an increase in drugs, they actually posted it, it was increased, and I was not happy, because we want to get drug prices down.

He said thats a first than anyone can remember. Like I said, the office of president must be very powerful to be able to do that, because these drug companies are very, I mean look, theyre great, but theyre prices are too high. And we are announcing next week which was going to get them down really, really substantially, but we didnt think was appropriate, and we want to just thank them. The whole group of them; they know who were talking about.

Full quote to Boeing: I think Boeing has to like me a lot. I think everybody in this room frankly likes me. Well keep it that way.

On Melania: Could I ask the great first lady, she has been so caring, so loving, so good to people, and you know I was in Ohio the other night, and theres so many signs, we love our first lady, we love our first lady, Melania please stand.

FLOTUS stood to applause and said: Well welcome to Bedminster. Its great to have to you have here. And were looking for a good discussion tonight. And I just want to thank the president for doing an incredible job and for all of your help. Thank you very much.

Newsmax' Chris Ruddy said to laughter: "I am an enemy of the people that actually supports Donald Trumps policies.

At the end of the spray, just before the questions, the president came back to GDP.

I have to say the policies of the other administration would have been more regulation and much higher taxes. And what youre witnessing now could never have happened. And growth has taken us out of a lot of problemsyoure gonna see super growth very soon when its all set, when its all, its like a fine-tuned machine. But youre gonna see some really super growth.

Were in a little bit of a fight with China right now. And weve gone up, and I dont want them to go down, because Im big fan of President Xi, a friend of mine, but theyre down 28 percent since we, the last 3 or 4 months, and we want them to do well, but we want them to treat us fairly. They have not treated us fairly for many decades, which is the presidents fault. I take responsibility for my time, and I couldnt let that happen.

He predicted that ultimately the U.S. would have a fantastic trading relationship with China and claimed its all working out.

POTUS briefly mentioned Iran: Iran is a whole different country since we got rid of one of the worst deals that I have ever seen. Much, much different country.

North Korea: Were doing well. He said suggested that critics needed to be patient. Theyve been working on this thing for 40 years. I left 3 months ago. He said that he got the hostages back, no missiles are flying over Japan, no nuclear tests are taking place and we have a good relationship with North Korea. So, well see how it works. I have a feeling that China now is not happy, and maybe theyre doing a little bit of a number, but well figure that out.
