McEnany: 

  • This is not something that the White House is in control of 

  • Says the protests have been more peaceful because of the actions that have made from the administration

  • Says Trump has noticed the protests are becoming more peaceful 

Press: “On Hong Kong; Can you say when will the administration revoke Hong Kong’s trade status? Do you think that move will be the only thing the administration does? Is there something else planned? Do you think that China will listen? Are you seeing any signs of China relenting on Hong Kong?” 


McEnany: 

  • No updates have been heard

  • No announcements with the timing 

  • Says Trump has been clear, China has replaced it’s promise of “One country, two systems” with “One country, one system” 

Press: “A week after what we saw in Lafayette Park last Monday night, are there any people here in this building who believe that or does the President believe that perhaps things went the way they shouldn’t have gone? Is there any regret on the part of the President or  anyone here about how people were treated, people who were peacefully protesting, and how they were rushed out so violently?” 


McEnany: 

  • “No regrets on the part of the White House.”

  • AG Barr is the person who directed the move of the perimeter Monday night 

  • Before the protestors were moved, the law enforcement gave 3 warnings to move back some did but some began to throw objects 

“Park Police acted as they felt they needed to at that time, in response, an we stand by those actions.”

    Press: “You do know that the burning of St. Johns happened on Sunday night, and a lot of violence that you’re talking about, that happened on Sunday night. What he was asking about was Monday, when, as anyone who was down there knows, it was almost exclusively peaceful, especially the moments before the chemical munitions were used on those protestors. So do you just want to clarify that about the burning of St. Johns?”


    McEnany: 

    • Says the burning on St. Johns is what made the decision to move the perimeter

    • “When you hurl objects at the police, when you don’t move after three orders given, Park Police acted appropriately.” 

     

     

    Press: “As you had noted, the President talked about the protests, he’s talked about the death of George Floyd, But he still hasn’t given a formal address to the nation. Why is that? Are there plans for him to do that anytime soon?”


    McEnany: 

    • When Trump was in Florida, last Saturday, addressed the nation by mentioning the death of George Floyd was a tragedy, it should’ve never happened, and spent seven minutes about this topic

    Press: “Obviously we’re hearing a very optimistic message from the President about the b numbers, and the stock market recovery. But in an executive order on Thursday night, the President said that, without intervention, the U.S. faced the likelihood of a long economic recovery with persistent high unemployment. I’m just wondering why are we hearing two messages from the President and how the American people are supposed to feel about the economy for the rest of the year?”  


    McEnany:

    • Says Thursday is a great example of what Trump wants in the future like we had: 
      • Rearing economy 
      • Paychecks growing for low-income workers  

    • Says markets and employers believe they can open their doors in Trump's economy 

    Press: “New York city began reopening it’s economy today after a very long lockdown. Does President Trump think we need another coronavirus stimulus package? If so, what would he want to see in it before he signs it?”


    McEnany: 

    • Says Trump has been somewhat open about phase 4 and had a meeting last week at the White House about this topic

    • Trump wants to see several things happen one of which is Payroll Tax Holiday directly advantages low-income workers 

    Press: “Would President Trump support an actual increase in police funding to help offset some of the damage that would be waged on departments that are defunded across the country?”


    McEnany: 

    • Trump does not want to defund police in any way, shape, or form

    • Her and Trump recently talked about how violent crimes have dropped throughout the country 

    Press: “I wanted to ask you about the Defunding the Police movement that’s going on. How does it impact the crime scenario here?”


    McEnany: 

    • Our police is described as Blue Line

    • Says they have done a lot since 2018: 
      • Murder arrests 11,970
      • Robbery arrests 88,130
      • Aggravated assault 396,800 
      • Violent crime arrests 495,900

    Press: “Does President Trump urge Prince Andrew to comply with his Department of Justice’s request for an interview in the case against Jeffery Epstein? ”


    McEnany: 

    • NO COMMENT

    Press: “Is there any thought being given to returning to, if not a daily coronavirus briefing, frequent coronavirus briefings? On the reopenings, President said some weeks back that he would continue to monitor the situation and that if any states were doing things that he didn’t think were appropriate, he would step in to intervene?”


    McEnany: 

    • Dr. Birx gave new information saying new cases have stabilized and more cases are being caught by looking closely and keeping up with finding asymptomatic cases

    • Today it was seen that the lowest new mortality report since the end of March 
      • Less than 500

    • Without police departments there will be more killing, gangs, drugs etc. There are good cops & bad cops. The bad cops need to be weeded out & dealt with legally. ALL LIFES MATTERS.
