Departing the White House, President Trump took just one question, from John Roberts on the intelligence used to justify the Soleimani airstrike:
"Well, first of all, I think it's been totally consistent. But here's what's been consistent: We killed Soleimani, the number one terrorist in the world by every account. Bad person, killed a lot of Americans, killed a lot of people. We killed him. And when the Democrats try and defend him, it's a disgrace to our country. They can't do that. And let me tell you, it's not working politically very well for them. So we killed the number one terrorist in the world, Soleimani, and it should have been done 20 years ago. We'll see you at the game."
Trump opened his remarks saying:
"The stock market is way up, the country is doing really well, and we'll see you at the game."
