>> overnight, one of kim jong un's top official seen heading to the united states is talks between white house officials and negotiators are expected to continue through today so as final preparations are put on the high-stakes summit how does china factor into these talks. joining me is dr. rebecca grant who we always appreciate having. this is very interesting when you look at the relationship between china, south korea and north korea so i would begin
with the china element in all this and how it would benefit. >> china can benefit from decreasing tensions. for a long time north korea was china's buffer state but now that china has become a global military power their relationship with north korea can shift so anything that provides better economic development opportunities, opportunities for china and could maybe over time lead to fewer us military forces in the pacific. that is all good for china. >> and china is north korea's main trade partner but with sanctions that are in place the exports to china are down 75% since the trump administration imposed these sanctions. >> that is correct and china is a full partner in supporting tough un sanctions. china has not given north korea
economic prosperity giving kim jong in the choice to denuclearize and bring in western private investment and better economic of elements, also china doesn't need this reckless rogue state with nuclear weapons. they need a solution in north korea as much as everyone else does. >> that is what i wanted to transition into next, what would be a bad result for china in all this? >> china's worst nightmares collapse of the north korean regime because china has a long border with north korea. the last thing xi jinping once is refugees and the crisis in north korea. that is the nightmare, anything that will transition to a more stable position for north korea is good for china and north korea and south korea unifying would not be good for china because that could put more influence of the united states in the region.
>> it is a delicate matter. we see kim jong un raising the issue of security guarantee. we don't know what that would look like but this the security solution has to be acceptable to china as well. south korea deployment for missile defenses so there's a rearrangement of military balance going on and china has to be comfortable with the end result. >> this is what the foreign ministry had to say. we think a person-to-person encounter between the leaders of north korea and the us is the key to solving problems but at the same time donald trump and others accused china of being a factor that derailed negotiations and derailed the summit this past weekend. >> the fact remains china is the single most influential country governing what north korea can do. we have seen the meetings go on. china has been very quiet about what they said and we really do
need china's cooperation at this delicate time. i would not be surprised to see another summit, korean peace agreement and china participating in that. patty: 1 looking at other things going on with the singapore summit, increased aggression in the south china sea and trade negotiations going on right now with china so it factors in. thank you for joining us, we appreciate it. the time is 18 minutes after the top of the hour. protesting patriotic rules, liberals igniting a firestorm and as a boycott of nfl games, the reason will have your blood boiling, honoring the stars and stripes every single day. meet the 5-year-old girl who can teach most adults a thing or two

republican candidates on the ballot come november who served our country but with a growing decline in veterans in congress which party has the upper hand to push their candidate through to washington? here to debate is a veteran of the armed services, kathy barnett and for me army ranger robin pyro. thank you for joining us. this is a great topic which i was excited to see we were going to talk about this. let's look at the numbers and how they changed in terms of veterans serving the country in congress, the senate. we go back to 1971 where 78% the number of veterans in the senate and it have gone down in 2017 to just 19% and look at the house, similar numbers 1971-72% down to 18% in 2017. why do you think the numbers of dough drastically dropped? >> one reason is these politicians get into office and
never leave office, people with 10 years up to 20, 30, 40 years later still holding those offices. as a veteran we have a tremendous amount we can still offer our nation. pushing the narrative, identity politics alone, not the reason we should be voting for anyone. we need to check with their principles are and how they will align themselves come november. >> you said the uniform is a great equalizer. >> absolutely. it teaches us. the first thing we learn in basic training is we are all equal. the only differences we recognize are in rank. we have to work with people of different socioeconomics, gender, race, religion, everything. we learn we all have one mission so that is who you want in office because we can work
across party lines to get the job done. >> in terms of working across party lines who do you think is better able to do that? >> this is the issue, we learned over the past year and a half the title democrat actually means something, it is not an empty label. the title democrat means resistance to this presidency, a party, the hurt feelings of ms 13 over the lives of the greater community. we need to take off our pink put on our thinking caps and put into voting booth recognizing beyond identity politics, that is manipulation. i am a black woman but being a black person is one aspect of who i am, it is not all of who i
am, solely because i'm black is myopic and small in their thinking. when we go to the loading booth we need to think beyond the label entitlement actually know who these people are. patty: heather: the resistance is becoming synonymous with democrats. is that a danger to them as we head and the midterms? >> you better believe it. i have been on countless times on this network saying we have got to move past the notion of resistance. people that can get that done are the veteran candidates. kathy is right about the democratic party pushing resistance but who is not doing that are the veterans. we know how to work with everyone. we are democratic veterans, the best qualified to do so.

thinking about their loved one that paid the sacrifice to have the freedom we do. heather: the organization has raised $15,000 so far. >> we presented angels of america's fallen a check with $15,000, making a commemorative shirt, you buy a t-shirt for percentage of the proceeds to go back to the charity and also had all the servicemembers submitted that may have made the ultimate sacrifice. pretty incredible, pretty emotional. heather: i am from charlotte i worked at charlotte motor speedway, i love nascar. i love how nascar is so patriotic and you just experienced firsthand what it
