President Donald Trump held a joint press conference with the president of Finland, Saudi Niinistö. Topics included NATO, the Arctic, Russia, NATO, Hurricane Harvey, FEMA, and NAFTA, among others. President Niinisto twice deflected leading questions from reporters asking him to give Trump advice on Russia. When Fox News’s John Roberts asked Trump about the president’s pardoning of Joe Arpaio, Trump’s lengthy response included pulling a piece of paper from his breast pocket on which he had written a list of pardons that presidents Clinton and Obama had given to criminals and terrorists. The list included Marc Rich who, Trump pointed out, Clinton pardoned after Rich’s wife donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Clintons. Trump also told a reporter from One American News that “one way or the other, Mexico’s going to pay for the wall, that’s right. It may be through reimbursement, but one way or another Mexico will pay for the wall.”
