"Do you think your trade or trade deal will pass through Congress sir?
7. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President:
"I think so, but you know if it doesn't we have lots of other alternatives. But I do think so. I think if they're fair, which is a big question, but if it's fair on both sides the Republicans love it, industry loves, our country loves it. If it's fair it will pass. I think it'll pass easily, really easily because it's a great deal."

9. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President:
"OK. Let's go. Come on. You want to I guess get off trade. I don't think people are falling asleep with trade. I think it's, to me it's the most exciting thing you can talk about right, Joni, right. All right let's go."
"Thank your Mr. President. In a tweet this weekend you said it is incorrect to say that you're limiting the scope of the FBI investigation into Judge Kavanaugh. But your own statement on Friday made it very clear you said This investigation must be limited in scope. So which is it?"
11. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President:
"Well, no I didn't say anything on Friday. What I said is let the Senate decide whatever they want to do is OK with me. And also, the FBI. I think the FBI should do what they have to do to get to the answer. At the same time, just so we all understand, this is our seventh investigation of a man who has really you know you look at his life until this happened. What a what a change he's gone through, what his family's gone through. The trauma. For a man that never had any accusation, any he's never had a bad statement about him. He's led ... I mean I think he was number one in his class at Yale. He was number one in his law school at Yale. And then what he's gone through over the last three weeks is incredible. So, I want the FBI ... this is now their seventh investigation. So it's not like you know just starting. I want them to do a very comprehensive, investigation. Whatever that means according to the senators and the Republicans and the Republican majority. I want them to do that."
During a Rose Garden news conference called to highlight the revamped US-Canada-Mexico trade agreement, President Donald Trump insulted a female reporter for ABC News telling her that she "never" thinks even before she had a chance to ask her question.
As ABC reporter Cecilia Vega, turned to pick up a microphone, Trump joked in front of an open microphone that she was "shocked that I picked her. Like in a state of shock."
When she replied, "I'm not, thank you Mr. President, " the president appeared to mishear her and responded, "that's OK, I know you're not thinking, you never do."
Vega responded: "I'm sorry?"
Vega tried to ask a question about the FBI investigation of sexual assault allegations against Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, but the president initially insisted she ask about trade.
He returned to Vega later in the news conference for a Kavanaugh question.
