President Donald Trump on Tuesday told reporters that the Obama administration’s vetting process for steel plate engravings on the U.S. dollar was not done properly and that the U-S-B-4 steel plate is a “fraud” in the country.
Trump was speaking in the Roosevelt Room at the White House, where he was receiving a briefing from senior adviser Kellyanne Conway.
He had said during his recent visit to the country that he wanted the steel plate replaced by the new one that would cost $20 billion.
Trump also called out the Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for not doing enough to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
“It is a fraud,” Trump said.
“It’s a fraud in this country.
I mean, there is nothing wrong with that.
I have nothing against steel plate.
I love steel plate and I do.
You can put a $20bn steel plate on the dollar and people will love it. “
There is nothing like steel plate in this world.
You can put a $20bn steel plate on the dollar and people will love it.
I can’t say it enough, and I have to say it.”
The president also criticized the Obama-Clinton foreign policy team for not going after the “big fish” of the Middle East, Iran, and North Korea.
“The biggest fish is the Islamic State, which has got to be dealt with.
We have to get that out of the hands of ISIS, which is a terrible organization.
We need to start getting those people to go to Iran and we have to deal with the Islamic state there,” Trump added.”
And then there is North Korea, which we have got to stop.
There is a lot of bad things happening in that country, and it is a total disaster.
The Obama administration was not doing a good job in that regard.
So they didn’t do a very good job there,” he added.
Trump’s speech was the first he had given since his administration announced that it would stop using the $1 trillion gold standard, which was originally intended to replace the U,S.
The move has caused an outcry in the United States, with many Americans angry that they were told by their elected officials that the gold standard was an idea created by former President Barack Obama.
Trump said he would continue to use the gold price as a currency, as he has for years, and added that he would look into “all options.”
“We will do our best to work with the Treasury Department and Congress to make sure that this thing never happens again,” Trump told reporters.
The president was also asked if he would be willing to talk with Iran about its nuclear program.
He said he was “absolutely” willing to work out a deal to keep Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.
“I’m sure they’re willing to do that.
And I would be happy to do it.
But I think the best thing for our country is to just stop it,” Trump responded.
