      Remarks by President Obama and President Peña Nieto of Mexico After Bilateral Meeting

      National Gallery of Canada
      Ottawa, Canada

      11:44 A.M. EDT

      PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, I just want to thank President Peña Nieto and the members of his delegation for an excellent discussion preceding our trilateral meeting.

      Before I discuss the importance of the U.S.-Mexican relationship, let me just publically extend my deepest condolences to the people of Turkey for the terrible attack that took place in Istanbul. I had a chance to speak to President Erdogan earlier today to discuss with him not only how heartbroken we have been by the images of the injured and those killed, but also to reaffirm our strong commitment to partner with Turkey, with NATO, with the broad-based alliance that we have structured around the world to fight ISIL.

      It’s an indication of how little these vicious organizations have to offer — that beyond killing innocents, they are continuing losing ground, unable to govern those areas that they have taken over. That they’re going to be defeated in Syria, they’re going to be defeated in Iraq. They are going to be on the run wherever they hide. And we will not rest until we have dismantled these networks of hate that have an impact on the entire civilized world.

      And I know that that view is shared by Mexico. It’s shared by Canada. It’s shared by all the people of this hemisphere. And it’s shared in every region of the world. So we stand with the people of Turkey, and we intend to do what’s necessary to make sure that these kinds of terrible events are not happening.

      Now, on a happier note, the cooperation that’s been taking place between the United States and Mexico across a whole range of issues has been outstanding. We had the opportunity to discuss the continuing strength of our business, commercial, trade and people-to-people ties.

      3:18 P.M. EDT

      PRIME MINISTER TRUDEAU: Good afternoon, everyone. Thank you for joining us today. President Obama, President Peña Nieto and I have just wrapped up a very productive meeting. The tone of the meeting was friendly, as you might expect among friends, but also a little poignant. We’re obviously thrilled to have President Peña Nieto here for his first visit to Canada as President of Mexico. Yet, at the same time, it’s a little sad that this will be the last chance for all three of us to get together in this capacity, given President Obama’s impending retirement — (laughter) — something he pointed out to us more than once, I should add, usually with a little smile.

      But I do want to once again thank both leaders and their delegations for coming to Ottawa and for being truly open to the discussions that took place today. One of the first items we discussed was our common respect for diversity and our firm support for LGBTQ rights, especially in the wake of the shootings earlier this month in Orlando.

      (Speaks French.) (As interpreted.) The United States and Mexico both lost citizens in Orlando. That tragedy has strengthened our determination to protect the rights of LGBTQ people, and we urge all leaders throughout the world to do the same.

      We also talked about the need to ensure a clean and prosperous future for all of our people and for all people in the world.

      (Speaks English.) We are unanimous in our belief that on this issue, North America can — and indeed must — lead the way.

      Today, we resolved — we turned that resolve into action with a negotiation of an ambitious and enduring North American Climate, Clean Energy, and Environment Partnership. This partnership will see our countries stand side by side as we work toward the common goal of a North America that is competitive, that encourages clean growth, and that protects our shared environment now and for generations to come. It’s a partnership that lays out some very clear deliverables and that identifies realistic paths to achieving them.

      PRESIDENT OBAMA: Thank you so much. Thank you. (Applause.) Thank you, everybody. (Applause.) Thank you so much. Thank you. Please, everyone have a seat. Thank you. (Applause.) Thank you so much.

      Good evening. Bonjour. Mr. Prime Minister, Mr. Speaker, members of the House, members of the Senate, distinguished guests, people of Canada — thank you for this extraordinary welcome, which temps me to just shut up and leave. (Laughter.) Because it can’t get any better than this. (Laughter.) Obviously I’m grateful for the warm welcome. I’m extraordinarily grateful for the close working relationship and friendship with your outstanding Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, and his extraordinary wife, Sophie.

      But I think it’s fair to say that much of this greeting is simply a reflection of the extraordinary alliance and deep friendship between Canadians and Americans.

      Justin, thank you for your very kind words, and for the new energy and hope that your leadership has brought to your nation as well as to the alliance. My time in office may be nearing an end, but I know that Canada — and the world — will benefit from your leadership for years to come. (Applause.)

      So Canada was the very first country that I visited as President. It was in February. (Laughter.) It was colder. (Laughter.) I was younger. (Laughter.) Michelle now refers to my hair as the Great White North. (Laughter.) And on that visit, I strolled around the ByWard Market, tried a “beaver tail” — (laughter) — which is better than it sounds. (Laughter.) And I was struck then, as I am again today, by the warmth of the Canadians. I could not be more honored to be joining you in this historic hall — this cathedral of freedom. And we Americans can never say it enough — we could not ask for a better friend or ally than Canada. (Applause.) We could not. It’s true. It is true. And we do not take it for granted.

      That does not mean we don’t have our differences. As I understand it, one of the reasons the Queen chose this site for Parliament was that it was a safe distance from America’s border. (Laughter.) And I admit, in the War of 1812, American troops did some damage to Toronto. I suspect that there were some people up here who didn’t mind when the British returned the favor and burned down the White House. (Laughter.)

      In more recent times, however, the only forces crossing our borders are the armies of tourists and businesspeople and families who are shopping and doing business and visiting loved ones. Our only battles take place inside the hockey rink. Even there, there’s an uneasy peace that is maintained. As Americans, we, too, celebrate the life of Mr. Hockey himself, the late, great Gordie Howe. (Applause.) Just as Canadians can salute American teams for winning more Stanley Cups in the NHL. (Laughter.)

      AUDIENCE: Ooooh —

      PRESIDENT OBAMA: I told you I should have stopped after the applause. (Laughter.)

      But in a world where too many borders are a source of conflict, our two countries are joined by the longest border of peace on Earth. (Applause.) And what makes our relationship so unique is not just proximity. It’s our enduring commitment to a set of values — a spirit, alluded to by Justin, that says no matter who we are, where we come from, what our last names are, what faith we practice, here we can make of our lives what we will.

      It was the grit of pioneers and prospectors who pushed West across a forbidding frontier. The dreams of generations — immigrants, refugees — that we’ve welcomed to these shores. The hope of run-away slaves who went north on an underground railroad. “Deep in our history of struggle,” said Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Canada was the north star… The freedom road links us together.”

      We’re bound as well by the service of those who’ve defended us — at Flanders Field, the beaches of Normandy, in the skies of the Balkans, and more recently, in the mountains of Afghanistan, and training bases in Iraq. Their sacrifice is reflected in the silent rows of Arlington and in the Peace Tower above us. Today we honor those who gave their lives for all of us. (Applause.)
      We’re linked together, as well, by the institutions that we’ve built to keep the peace: A United Nations to advance our collective aspirations. A NATO alliance to ensure our security. NORAD, where Americans and Canadians stand watch side by side — and track Santa on Christmas Eve. (Laughter.)

    Stonewall Riots – 45th Anniversary

    June 28, 1969 – The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours at the Stonewall Inn, in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City. They are frequently cited as the first instance in American history when people in the homosexual community fought back against a government-sponsored system that persecuted sexual minorities, and they have become the defining event that marked the start of the gay rights movement in the U. S. and around the world.

  6. First Quarter U.S. Economic Growth Exceeds Previous Estimate

    June 28, 2016 — 5:30 AM PDT Sho Chandra – bloomberg

    The world’s largest economy expanded more than previously projected in the first quarter as improved performance in trade and business investment more than made up for weaker consumer spending.

    Gross domestic product, the value of all goods and services produced, rose at a 1.1 percent annualized rate, compared with a previously estimated gain of 0.8 percent, a Commerce Department report showed Tuesday in Washington. Corporate profits at the start of the year were also revised up, giving a brighter picture to gross domestic income.

    The economy shows signs of accelerating so far this quarter as the drivers of growth have switched, with consumer spending rebounding while business investment lags behind. While gains in employment and low borrowing costs are helping propel household demand, uncertainty in the wake of Britain’s vote to leave the European Union is a longer-term risk to already-weak corporate outlays and exports.

    “Consumer spending looks to be bouncing back fairly strongly,” said Ryan Sweet, a senior economist at Moody’s Analytics Inc. in West Chester, Pennsylvania,, who correctly projected the gain in GDP. “The economy can weather the impact of Brexit.”

    • Third Estimate of Gross Domestic Product for the First Quarter of 2016

      JUNE 28, 2016 AT 9:30 AM ET BY JASON FURMAN

      Summary: Real GDP growth was revised up to 1.1 percent at an annual rate in the first quarter.
      First-quarter economic growth was revised up 0.3 percentage point to 1.1 percent at an annual rate. Strong growth in residential investment boosted real GDP growth, but weakness in business investment—exacerbated by weak foreign demand and low oil prices—weighed on growth. Going forward, increased uncertainty, including uncertainty regarding the consequences of British voters’ decision last week to leave the European Union, underscores the importance of proactive policy steps to strengthen the U.S. economy. The President will continue to take steps to strengthen economic growth and boost living standards, including promoting greater competition across the economy; supporting innovation; and calling on Congress to support investments in infrastructure and job training and to pass high-standards free trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

      FIVE KEY POINTS IN TODAY’S REPORT FROM THE BUREAU OF ECONOMIC ANALYSIS (BEA)

      1. Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grew 1.1 percent at an annual rate in the first quarter of 2016, according to BEA’s third estimate

      2. First-quarter GDP growth was revised up 0.3 percentage point at an annual rate

      3. While growth in consumer spending slowed somewhat in the first quarter, monthly data through May point to a pickup in the second quarter.

      4. Real State and local government purchases—which had faced challenges earlier in the recovery—increased 3.2 percent at an annual rate in the first quarter

      5. Real private domestic final purchases (PDFP)—the sum of consumption and fixed investment—rose 1.1 percent at an annual rate in the first quarter, a slower pace than in recent quarters

    Statement by Press Secretary Josh Earnest on the Terrorist Attack at Ataturk International Airport

    The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms today’s heinous terrorist attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport in Turkey, which appears to have killed and injured dozens. Ataturk International Airport, like Brussels Airport which was attacked earlier this year, is a symbol of international connections and the ties that bind us together. Our deepest condolences go out to the families and loved ones of those killed, and we wish a speedy recovery to those injured. We remain steadfast in our support for Turkey, our NATO Ally and partner, along with all of our friends and allies around the world, as we continue to confront the threat of terrorism.

  12. Consumer Spending in U.S. Rose 0.4% in May, Income Growth Cooled

    6/29/16 Victoria Stilwell – bloomberg

    Consumer purchases moderated last month after the biggest advance since August 2009 as American households realigned outlays with slower income growth.

    Personal spending climbed 0.4 percent in May after a 1.1 percent jump a month earlier that was more than initially estimated, Commerce Department figures showed Wednesday in Washington. Incomes climbed a less-than-forecast 0.2 percent.

    Even with the smaller advance in spending, steady job growth and a nascent pickup in wages will probably bolster household purchases after a first-quarter slowdown. With rising global uncertainty expected to stymie business investment, a resilient consumer will needed to keep the U.S.’s growth prospects intact.

    The report shows “an economy where the consumer is doing relatively well,” Joseph LaVorgna, chief U.S. economist at Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. in New York, who correctly forecast the gain in spending. “The consumer will do okay because the household sector is in very good fundamental shape.”
