THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you all very much.  I appreciate you being here.  We have a number of bills that we’re signing and things that we’re doing today.  It’s a busy day.  And then I guess tonight will be a rather busy night.  We look forward to it.

I also want to thank everyone else who’s with us today.  In fact, I have some names, and I’ll read some of them off, because not everybody knows everybody.  But we have Leader McCarthy.  Representative Barbara Comstock.  Lamar Smith — thank you, Lamar, very much.  I appreciate it.  Joni Ernst, who’s been a terrific, terrific senator.  A very talented woman, and a very good military person.  A very good military person.  And, Deb Fischer, thank you very much.  Thanks.  We also have Senator Barrasso and Senator Boozman.  Joni, we said hello.  Deb, we said hello.  Heidi Heitkamp — thank you, Heidi.  Senator Jim Inhofe.  Senator Pat Roberts.  Senator Dan Sullivan.  Representative Bob Gibbs.  Bill Shuster.  And Representative Lamar Smith.  We really appreciate you being here.

James S. Brady Press Briefing Room

3:07 P.M. EST

MS. SANDERS:  Good Afternoon.  Sorry for the delay.  Obviously, I never want to step on anything the President is doing, so I wanted to wait until he finished.  The President has obviously got a full day and night planned, so I’m going to try to keep this short so that you guys can get focused on his speech coming up later.

First off, and I know Sean briefly spoke about this yesterday — and, by the way, just for clarification, he is not here, clearly, because he is up on the Hill briefing House and Senate communicators about the speech and previewing that for them right now.  But Sean mentioned this yesterday, and I’m sure that it stuck with me, but the story has developed further.  I wanted to address the tragic shooting in Kansas.  The President is keeping the family of the victim, who was senselessly, killed in his thoughts, and we’re praying for the full and speedy recovery of those who were wounded.

1:38 P.M. EST

MR. SPICER:  Hey, guys.  You saw the President signed an executive order today, another important step towards eliminating job-crushing regulations and keeping the government agencies accountable by getting America back to work, just as he promised to do.  This afternoon, he’s meeting with Governor Kasich.  The President of Peru, as I mentioned yesterday, will be swinging by.  Over the weekend, the President is going to be continuing to work on his joint address.  He’s hosting a dinner in the State Dining Room of our nation’s governors.  And the First Lady has a bunch of activities planned.  There’s a ball Sunday night that the First Lady is hosting for the governors and their spouses.

And as I mentioned yesterday — and I think that’s kind of it.  So with that, let me —

Q    What is he going to talk to Kasich about?

MR. SPICER:  This is something that they wanted to get together after the election and catch up, and discuss sort of the issues and agenda that the President is implementing, and hopefully how some of these things — I think coal will probably come up.  But we’ll try and see if we can get a readout of that afterwards.  We generally don’t provide readouts of that, but let me see what I can do.

Oval Office

PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Well, thank you very much, everybody.  It’s a great honor to have President Kuczynski with us from Peru.  Peru has been a fantastic neighbor.  We’ve had great relationships — better now than ever before.  And I have known him for quite a while through reading about the work that he’s done, and I believe he’s here to get an award at Princeton.  An award for what?  Explain, please.

PRESIDENT KUCZYNSKI:  For being an alumnus who did okay, I guess.  (Laughter.)

PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Yeah, did very okay.  And your daughter goes to —

PRESIDENT KUCZYNSKI:  Alex?  Oh, my other daughter, Susie, goes to Princeton.

PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Right.  That’s exactly right.

PRESIDENT KUCZYNSKI:  She wants to study medicine.

PRESIDENT TRUMP:  And I assume she’s very proud of you getting the big award tomorrow, right?

PRESIDENT KUCZYNSKI:  Right.  And Alex went to Columbia.

PRESIDENT TRUMP:   That’s great.  Good students, good children.  So a very, very special man, and it’s an honor to have him in Washington, at the White House.  And we’re going to talk some business.  I understand they’re going to be buying quite a bit of our military — some of our military vehicles.  And they are great vehicles.  I just looked at it and we’re approving it.  And use them well.  Use them well.

And if you’d like to say something, Mr. President, please.

PRESIDENT KUCZYNSKI:  Well, I’m happy to be in Washington.  I lived here for a while.  I lived in New York.  We greatly respect the U.S.  We have excellent relations.  And Latin America needs to grow more, and we’re going to talk about how to do that.  Maybe you have a few ideas.

PRESIDENT TRUMP:   I guess I do.  I guess I do.  And we have a problem with Venezuela.  They’re doing very poorly.  And so we’ll be talking about a lot of different things.

And thank you all for being here.  Thank you.

THE PRESIDENT:  I love this place.  Love you people.  So thank you.  Thank you very much.

First of all, I want to thank Matt Schlapp, and his very, very incredible wife and boss, Mercedes, who have been fantastic friends and supporters, and so great.  When I watch them on television defending me, nobody has a chance.  So, I want to thank Matt and Mercedes.

And when Matt called and asked, I said, absolutely, I’ll be there with you.  I mean, the real reason I said it — I didn’t want him to go against me because that one you can’t beat.  So I said, absolutely.  And it really is an honor to be here.
