אקעי, נישט ממש ליגענט אבער זייער מיסליעדינג. ביים דרשה צו דערקלערן א נאציאנאלע עמערדזשענסי האט טראמפ פארציילט מיט שטאלץ אז דער יאפענעזער פריים מיניסטער האט אים איינגעמאלדן אז ער האט אים נאמינירט פאר די נאבל שלום פרעמיע, א יאפאנעזער צייטונג גיט אבער איבער בשם קוועלער אז דאס איז נאר געקומען נאכדעם וואס דער יר"ה האט אים בכבודו ובעצמו געבעטן אז ער זאל אים נאמינירן... (אויב וועט זיך דער באריכט ארויסשטעלן אלץ אומריכטיג וועל מיר עס אי"ה אריבערפירן אין די מידיע בייעס אשכול.)
But much more importantly than all of it — much more important — much, much more important that that is we have a great relationship. I have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un. And I’ve done a job. In fact, I think I can say this: Prime Minister Abe of Japan gave me the most beautiful copy of a letter that he sent to the people who give out a thing called the Nobel Prize. He said, “I have nominated you…” or “Respectfully, on behalf of Japan, I am asking them to give you the Nobel Peace Prize.” I said, “Thank you.” Many other people feel that way too. I’ll probably never get it, but that’s okay.
They gave it to Obama. He didn’t even know what he got it for. He was there for about 15 seconds and he got the Nobel Prize. He said, “Oh, what did I get it for?” With me, I probably will never get it.
But if you look at Idlib Province in Syria, I stopped the slaughter of perhaps 3 million people. Nobody talk about that. They don’t talk about that. Russia and Iran and Syria were going to go in and perhaps destroy 3 million people in order to get 45,000 terrorists. And I heard about it from a woman who had her parents and her brothers living there, and she said, “Please, please.” And I thought — I said, “No, it can’t happen. What are you talking about?” “No, they’re going to get…” And I come home, and I read a certain paper where the story was there that they were actually forming to go into — to really — to really do big destruction. And I put out a statement that “you better not do it.”
And in all fairness to Russia and Iran and Syria, they didn’t attack. Or they’re doing it surgically, at least. Saved a lot of people. We do a lot of good work. This administration does a tremendous job, and we don’t get credit for it. But I think the people understand what we do.
So Prime Minister Abe gave me — I mean, it’s the most beautiful five letter — five-page letter. Nobel Prize. He sent it to them. You know why? Because he had rocket ships and he had missiles flying over Japan. And they had alarms going off; you know that. Now, all of a sudden, they feel good; they feel safe. I did that.
