It’s not just the president.
It’s President Trump.
In an interview with CNN, Trump was asked why the US has not been the dominant force in the Asian sports world for so long.
We’re not even close.””
We’re not the most successful.
We’re not even close.”
The president said the United States has lost out on a number of opportunities in Asia over the last few decades, including not being able to host the Summer Olympics.
“I think we’re going to have a big problem, frankly, in the next two years,” he said, adding that the US will need to create a stronger relationship with Asia to help bolster the region’s standing.
“We need to make sure that when we’re invited to a meeting, we’re there and we’re being treated fairly.”
While Trump said the US was “not the most important” sports nation, he did mention China.
He said the country has not always been the best at producing winners in the global sporting arena, though he acknowledged that it has improved greatly in the past decade.
“But it is, as I said, I think, we are not the number one, but we’re certainly a number one country in terms of production of great athletes,” Trump said.
“In terms of sports in general, it is quite good.
I’ve heard people say that in China.
But I think it’s going to be an interesting year, and I think the United Kingdom is going to win.
But China, I’m sure, is going in a very big way.”
He also said that the UK is “probably going to get a lot of people” interested in hosting the 2020 Summer Olympics, although the country would likely not be invited because it is not part of the group of participating nations.
The US sports ministry has said the Games are on hold, with no timetable for resumption.
In his speech, Trump also said he believes the United Nations should be more inclusive in its pursuit of international cooperation.
“The United Nations is the great institution, the only institution that has the capacity to help create peace, stability and prosperity,” Trump told the conference.
“To be successful, it must be inclusive of the different groups.
The United Nations must not be afraid to work with any of the various groups and try to make them better.”
In the interview, Trump said that “there’s no other way” than to have an “open-minded approach” to the issues facing the world.
“If we’re talking about climate change, if we’re dealing with trade, if I’m dealing with the economy, I need to talk about that,” he told CNN.
“Because otherwise, you’re not going to deal with the world the way you should.”
Trump also said the world must look at the US in the context of the broader issues at play in the world today.
“And I think we can be a beacon of light, a beacon that people can look at and say, ‘Look, we have to do something about this,'” he said to CNN.
