a very controversial decision how do you think and that's played us well it was controversial it's still controversial but i would depend that decision that he may win i think i know the reasons for one is that if we had overthrown saddam hussein we would be responsible for running and governing iraq for a long time that's what happened to his son he had to run iraq at a real way through saddam hussein his father thought that was an odd wise move and really it was the second is you want iraq to be a counterweight to we were on a saddam hussein when he was leader of iraq for a long time for me to be wrong and he was it was really counterweight between two major powers in the middle east when saddam said he was overthrown in iraq really not with art there was no real counter which we won except saudi arabia or way on so he wanted to preserve the iraqi regime essential to counter the power of the growing power of iran and when saddam hussein was eventually removed from power
2:01 pm
iran became much much more influential but i want to read you something that george bush sr said after the end of the cold war he spoke about a new weld order he said a new world order can imagine new era free of from the threat of terror stronger in the pursuit of justice and more secure in the quest for peace an era in which the nations of the wild east and west north and south can prosper and live in harmony a wild weather rule of law supplants the rule of the jungle what you think you would make of the world we live in today and the decisions being made in washington d.c. . well you don't have to guess too much both bushes look on their inside were critical of donald trump and his foreign policy of values and his legacy trumped repudiates that rule for the united states he doesn't really believe that the united states has to be the leader of the world or that we have to defend the world order it's very expensive it's very difficult and it has led to the wants of american losses so trump does not defend that or both of the bush's did that was really essential
2:02 pm
to do it as they lie on that now is i want to ask you do you know much about what we might be expecting with regard to funeral arrangements and who might be attending from the white house we don't buy george that will trump has never been an admirer of george h.w. bush george h.w. bush i'm pretty sure i never voted for the i think he indicated that he couldn't vote for donald trump because the two were very far in foreign policy about i don't know left from will attend or not it's a difficult decision for him if he does he'll be criticized he doesn't believe in more criticized he's a very different kind of president and represents a very different image of the republican party george h.w. bush and his son were an image of the republican party really of the tests that republican party doesn't exist anymore now that trump has taken it over and we don't know exactly how trump who play a role in
2:03 pm
a few more arrangements or in the discussion of the legacy of the first president bush bill schneider speaking to us that from washington d.c. thanks so much for your time and reflections though and so what can serve as a former white house aide to george bush sr he believes he'll be warmly or mended around the wild. i think it will be remembered very fondly very warmly for this tyrant office the only get one terrorist president of the united states but it was a time of stability for the united states and it will be critical with with whatever the persian gulf crisis with other with a loss of life and having a great humanitarian heart i don't think that he would be so pleased with with some of the things are headed the united states i don't think that he viewed pleased with some of the challenges the way some of the charities have been addressed by the current president i think you would have any difficulty. he wanted very much
2:04 pm
to bring people together again ever to try to brace really americans together and to make america a place that was welcome to the rest of the world so he was somebody for a world war two many many years ago but he for world war two i don't think he ever forgot experience and he wanted to see a world where there was less conflict and where people were more in harmony with each other so he was somebody who tried to great or if you were still president and all that he'd be at least was over some of what he sees and you know essex so what happened for instance in charlottesville a couple of last year i'll use going now i suppose he would not be pleased with that rule nobody would believe the response but i believe the worst form of i've found to be a great man so i. understand what it meant to lead the country and he did it
2:05 pm
in a very selfless way not at all so either talk about himself never always like to be kind of a behind the scenes look at the work that he did speak for itself certainly does about who will be remembered very warmly grip of the united states. in other news trade deals dancing and protests day one of this year's g. twenty summit had a toll leaders from the world's top economies are in argentina for the annual event but the topics dominating this year's discussions are in fact those not on the formal agenda latin america editor lucien human reports from one of their. leaders of the world's most powerful nations wrapped up day one of the g. twenty summit with the aside this is a theater a venue that helped mask some of the bitter disputes that divide them inaugurating the summit earlier host president. called for the spirit of the g. twenty to prevail it was founded in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine with the
