Jun 14 2017

No, I have a great job right now. Serving the president has been a dream come true. I come into work each day and I'm very excited to be in the White House.feedback

Jun 07 2017

Yesterday was actually a very good day for us on tax reform. We agreed on the schedule, we agreed on our objectives and we agreed on a time frame. We're all on board to do it this year.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Trump Presidency

Jun 02 2017 - Fracking

The price of natural gas because of the technological advances we've had in the United States, and all the fracking development in what we've done to create an abundance of natural gas, has made the price of coal less favorable today. That could change very quickly.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

At some point in the cycle, coal will be competitive again. We want to be in the coal business because we know there's a cyclical nature to all these commodity prices. And when coal is the feedstock of choice, we need to have that feedstock to be globally competitive. But I did get caught off guard when [Blankfein] started tweeting last night.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

I'm confident that Congress will get the ceiling raised, on Friday, addressing what's become a yearly will-they-won't-they discussion as conservatives threaten to default on the federal debt to try to rein in government spending. At the end of the day, the deficit ceiling has to be raised. This is money that the Congress appropriated. They chose to spend the money. In a perfect world you would love to have a clean debt ceiling. But if we need to get things attached to get it through, we'll attach things.feedback

Jun 01 2017

Coal doesn't even make that much sense anymore as a feedstock. Natural gas, which we have become an abundant producer, which we're going to become a major exporter of, is such a cleaner fuel. Compliance with the terms of the Paris accord and the onerous energy restrictions it has placed on the United States could cost America as much as 2.7 million lost jobs by 2025, according to the National Economic Research Associates. This includes 440,000 fewer manufacturing jobs – not what we need.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Trump Presidency

May 27 2017

May 27 2017 - Syria conflict

We're not going to comment on Jared. We're just not going to comment.feedback

May 27 2017 - Trump Presidency

I don't know. What you're asking me to do is tell you what's inside the president's mind. I'm not qualified to do that. One thing you have to admit. I'm not sure that's true.feedback

May 27 2017 - French election 2017

They understand where we are, we understand where they are and it's most important that we continue to work together.feedback

May 27 2017 - China

The president, since he left New York [he later corrected himself to say Washington] has been dealing with foreign leaders, he's been dealing with jobs, he's been dealing with economic growth, he's been dealing with diplomacy, he's been dealing with unfair trade, he's been dealing with Paris [climate agreement], he's been dealing with China. His agenda has been overflowing. He's been fully consumed with what's going on here.feedback

May 27 2017 - China

May 26 2017

The last levels we put out in the Paris agreement were levels that would be constraining to our economic growth. But then you get into the whole discussion on Paris, is it non-binding, is it not non-binding, can you change your levels, how easy is it to change your levels. Coal doesn't even really make that much sense anymore as a feedstock.feedback

May 26 2017 - Trump Presidency

Can be a manufacturing powerhouse and still be environmentally friendly.feedback

May 26 2017 - Trump Presidency

I think he's leaning to understanding the European position. Look as you know from the U.S., there's very strong views on both sides. Both sides are running ads. So he knows that in the U.S., there's very strong opinions on both sides, but he also knows that Paris has important meaning to many of the European leaders. And he wants to clearly hear what the European leaders have to say.feedback

May 26 2017 - Trump Presidency

May 26 2017 - Trump Presidency

If those things collide, growing our economy is going to win. He wants to understand how we can bring back manufacturing, bring back jobs, but still be environmentally friendly, but not have a restriction enforced upon us that makes absolutely no sense.feedback

May 26 2017 - German economy

He said they're very bad on trade, but he doesn't have a problem with Germany. He said his dad is from Germany.feedback

This is a middle-class tax bill. We're eliminating the deductions that were added to the tax legislation over the years to favor the wealthy. The wealthy have deductions. Middle-income people and lower-income people don't have deductions.feedback

The median income in the United States today is about $56,000. You take the $24,000 away from the $56,000, you've got taxable income of $32,000. At a 10 percent rate, that's $3,000 of tax.feedback

Apr 26 2017

In 2017, we are still stuck with a 1988 corporate tax. This isn't going to be easy. Doing big things never is. We'll be attacked from the left, we'll be attacked from the right. But one thing is certain. I would never bet against this president, he will get this done for the American people.feedback

Apr 26 2017

We know this is difficult. We know what we're asking for is a big bite.feedback

Mar 12 2017 - Federal Reserve

The Federal Reserve is an independent agency and they operate as such.

Nov 15 2016

We are part of a global monetary system today. And we've got many other major central banks around the world still with a zero interest rate policy, and quantitative easing.
