7:06 am
symmetric to what we did. the obama administration kicked out 35 diplomats, allegedly those who were actually working as intelligence officers. this reduction is over 700. most of those will be russian employees but that's a drastic cut. that's the embass yea of iran. it it will be harder to do business in russia as a result of this. >> jeremy, you feel this is boilerplate that there might be some positive relationship to be had between vladimir putin and donald trump, or president trump, and this is kind of trump or putin saying, business is business. >> trump was forced to sign this bill and putin knows it. i think, matt, that the bromance will continue. russia is getting a lot of return on its investment. it's getting examine effectively what it wants in syria. we agreed to scrap a program that would push assad out of the way. it's also getting what it wants vis-a-vis nato. and our president's response to defending nato has been tepid. and russia likes that. >> michael, you have been
7:07 am
obviously a chief diplomat in russia. if you were to expel 755 diplomats and staff, how does that impact the way the u.s. does business with russia? diplomatically? >> it's huge. when i was ambassador, we had to close down the u.s. agency for international development. that was only 70 people. but that was very, very difficult. and i want to remind you, it hurts russians, too. remember, you go to the embassy to get your visa. that's the biggest section. it's going to take longer for russians to get their visas to come to the united states. this has a boomerang effect that hurts russians, as well. >> let me go to you, jeremy, on north korea. another crisis facing this white house. president-elect trump famously said, north korea just stated it's in the final stages of developing a well capable of reaching the u.s. it won't happen.
7:08 am
what is president trump learning about the north koreans? >> 14 tests. they have cleared most of the technical hurdles that can build an icmb that can go downtown chicago, denver, maybe new york. the last piece would be to miniaturize their nuclear warhead and put it atop that icbm. >> president trump said, the obama administration policy of strategic patience has come to an end. please explain to me what the difference is between the obama administration's approach and the trump administration's approach to north korea is. >> i'm not sure we know what the trump administration's approach is yet, hoda, but the trump administration has before it probably in meetings this week in the situation room a very stark choice. either to step a nuclear armed north korea that can hit the united states, or take military action pretemp preemptively. i would think they would look for a symbolic strike on one
