Subject: Travel Pool Report #3 - More quotes from Trump/Abe bilat
Asked at the end of the pool spray about his comments on Germany ("Did you say that Germany is very bad ?"), POTUS did not say a word.
"We will be discussing many things including of course North Korea which is very much on our minds.
We will be discussing terrorism but I think we will really in particular be focused on the North Korea problem.
It's a big problem.
It's a world problem and it will be solved at some point.
It will be solved, you can bet on that"
About his relationship with PM Abe :
"It's of course a close partnership and collaboration, and friendship. We've developed a great friendship. And I look forward to being with you and spending some time with you and I’ll be seeing today, and I'll be seeing you many times over the weekend"
"There is one unfortunate thing I have to confess, this time around we will not be able to play golf together"
"I would like to congratulate you on your successful visit to the Middle East region as well as your participation in the NATO summit, and through your visit to the NATO summit, and through your visit I understand that you have demonstrated robust commitment to ensuring global security and I highly value your commitment.
"Of course as you mentioned, we are going to talk about the North Korean issue, but also we are going to cover" other issues.
