Look, I was on the phone call. I’m on almost every phone call
with the president, with every world leader. – Can you assure your allies, Greece,
other countries of the Balkans, – the US allies – that they will not be
subject to political pressure based on their willingness or
unwillingness to help the interests of the US president? – What’s the question? To do what?
[laughter] No, no, you’re going to be under
enormous political pressure, let me assure you, right? This is what we do. We work together in a political
environment to achieve what the Greek people want, right? And America tries to advance
its interests around the world and I am confident that I feel pressure. When I talk to your foreign minister,
he pressures me all the time. [laughter] It’s totally appropriate.
– OK. – Right? Isn’t that right?
It’s totally right. Go ahead and admit it. You can say.
It’s completely right. [applause] Yeah, it’s OK, it’s OK.
I understand, it’s OK, it’s fine. Nations do this. Nations work together and
they say, ‘boy, goodness gracious, if you can help me with x,
we’ll help you achieve y’. This is what partnerships do.
It’s win win. It’s better for each of us. I’m not offended when your
prime minister asks me, ‘can you help us with x?’
