Q Will you reach a deal on the package before you leave for the G20?
THE PRESIDENT: You all never believed from the beginning I’d ever get anything done. I think we’ll get a deal.
Q Are you accepting losing — going from 12 years [sic] to 4 years [sic] of paid family leave?
THE PRESIDENT: I’m not going to get into — like I wouldn’t be — if I negotiated with you guys all along, I wouldn’t be as far along as I am. I’m hopeful. I think we’ll get a good deal.
Q Are you concerned about Chinese hypersonic missiles?
THE PRESIDENT: Yes.
