Here are some things the president said today.

“I didn’t pound on tables. I didn’t raise my voice. That was a lie.”

“When I said Mexico will pay for the wall in front of thousands and thousands of people, obviously they’re not going to write a check, but they are paying for the wall indirectly many, many times over by the really great trade deal we just made.”

“I don’t have temper tantrums.”

“I’m a professional at technology.”

“If we don’t make a deal, I mean, I would say 100% but I don’t want to say 100%... it would be very surprising to me that I would not declare a national emergency.”

“Look, you can all play cute, and I say 80% of you are possibly in cooperation with the opposition party. I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous.”

“The wall that we’re doing is very, very hard to penetrate.”

“I have the absolute right to declare a national emergency. I haven’t done it yet. I may do it. If this doesn’t work out, probably I will do it. I would almost say definitely.”

“Compromise is in my vocabulary, very strongly.”

“I find China, frankly, in many ways, to be far more honorable than Cryin’ Chuck and Nancy.”
