President Donald Trump declared on Tuesday that he has the “absolute right” to “get the hell out of there” if necessary.
“I have absolute power.
We’ll get the hell off of this place.
If we need to get them off the streets, we’re going to get ’em off the street.
We have absolute authority over the entire planet.
We’re going get them.
It’s the only thing I’ve ever done in this country, and it’s the best thing that’s ever happened,” Trump said.
“They have to be in there, we have to get rid of them.”
Trump made the statement in response to questions from reporters as he exited the White House for his weekly news conference on Fox 8, where he also discussed Hurricane Harvey and the “disaster that is happening” in Texas.
“If we have a humanitarian situation that needs to be solved, I will be ready to get those people off the roads, get them on the highways, get ‘er done,” Trump told Fox News.
“We are going to be doing what we can, we are going on the roads.
But I have absolute control.
We are going get ‘um off the highways.”
Trump also told Fox 8: “I will not be in any way responsible for what happens on our highways.
That is a different situation.
That’s not the role of the president.”
