Asked about his cancelled meeting with the Taliban at Camp David and if it was his advisers that talked him out of holding the meeting on U.S. soil just ahead of the 18th anniversary of 9-11.
The President said, “no, actually in terms of advisers I took my own advice,” [shocking I know].
He went on to say he likes the idea of meeting and has already met with a “lot of bad people,” adding he thinks meeting is a “great thing.”

He once again stated he will be prior to 2020 election releasing a complete financial report that “will be extremely complete.”
As the News Blender reported on Monday, a report from Friday explained that the House Oversight Committee has been since April, investigating how much tax payer money is being used to support Trump’s Turnberry Gold Resort located in Scotland.
Asked about profiting off the presidency, Trump promises that "at some point before the election," he will be "giving out a financial report of me … I'm going to give out my financial condition & you'll be extremely shocked that the numbers are many many times what you think." pic.twitter.com/pC1gIHWjVY— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) September 9, 2019
Live Feed 1 Fox News.
Live Feed 2 PBS News Hour.
CNN Fact Checker Daniel Dale will be live tweeting fact checks of what is typically a 90 minute speech.
In fairness as Dale notes often, most of the claims the President makes in rally speeches have been made before, several, several, several times.
What we might hear new tonight?
How the fake news was obsessed with President Trump’s false warning to Alabama.
How if Obama had planned to meet with the Taliban to stop a war, he’d have been given another Nobel Peace Prize for just having the idea.
That's just how I live my life, so yes, both https://t.co/ERi446bUWd— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) September 9, 2019
