"I’m a tremendous fracker, coal, natural gas, alternate energy, wind – everything, right?"

Two things:
1) This White House cannot be trusted on ANYthing any of them say;
2) What reporters were allowed on the plane?;
3) It was "off the record" and yet, for some reason, Trump wanted them to print it.  Gee.

4) Oh, yeah: there are numerous typos - is that Bloomberg's fault, or is this exactly what they got from the White House?
In an unusual episode, the White House on Thursday released its transcript of some of his comments, after Trump asked a reporter in Paris why she hadn’t reported on what he’d said the night before.


Q When were you last in Paris? When were you last in France?

THE PRESIDENT: So I was asked to go by the President, who I get along with very well, despite a lot of fake news. You know, I actually have a very good relationship with all of the people at the G20.

And that was the last time he was in France?

And there's this lovely mashup (why do they want to print this again?  Oh wait - it's not "they"; it's "he".)
[China] an 8,000 year culture. So when they see 1776 -- to them, that’s like a modern building. The White House was started -- was essentially built in 1799. To us, that’s really old. To them, that’s like a super modern building, right? So, you know, they’ve had tremendous conflict over many, many centuries with Korea. So it’s not just like, you do this. But we’re going to find out what happens.


[Y]ou make reciprocal deals, you’re talking about hundreds of billions of dollars. But before I did that, I wanted to give it a good shot. Let’s see. And they helped us. I have a very good relationship with him. I think he’s a tremendous guy. But don’t forget. He’s for China. I’m for the U.S. So that’s always going to be.
And this:
Somebody said, what cards do you have? I said, very simple -- trade. We are being absolutely devastated by bad trade deals. We have the worst of all trade deals is with China.


But the biggest strength we have are these horrendous trade deals, like with China. That’s our strength. But we’re going to fix them. But in terms of North Korea, our strength is trade.
Apparently he doesn't know what having cards means.  Or strength.

And this:
And I think what’s happening is, as usual, the Democrats have played their card too hard on the Russia thing, because people aren’t believing it. It’s a witch hunt and they understand that. When they say "treason" -- you know what treason is? That’s Julius and Ethel Rosenberg for giving the atomic bomb, okay? But what about all the congressmen, where I see the woman sitting there surrounded by -- in Congress.
Yeah, I got nothin'.
One of the things with the wall is you need transparency. You have to be able to see through it. In other words, if you can’t see through that wall -- so it could be a steel wall with openings, but you have to have openings because you have to see what’s on the other side of the wall.

And I’ll give you an example. As horrible as it sounds, when they throw the large sacks of drugs over, and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don’t see them -- they hit you on the head with 60 pounds of stuff? It’s over. As cray as that sounds, you need transparency through that wall. But we have some incredible designs.
Maybe you should just go read it. Good luck.

And yes, he's still complaining about Hillary.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
