7:51 am
secretary. >> i think when you look at general mattis who's got respect on both sides of the aisle, both sides are saying they like this pick. of course he does need to get a waiver because normally the rule is you've got to be out of the military at least seven years before you could head up the department of defense. but i think that waiver which both the house and senate would have to give is something mattis can get to another retired general for secretary of state. but i think mattis in particular, some of the other picks, i think so far traditional republicans in particular for the most part are pretty happy with what they've e show a later this morning.

7:53 am
publicly kept railing against the company, they thought it might be bad for business. >> i've got you for one more min minute. quick question about the call with the leader of taiwan. was this a strategic move by the trump campaign or did they not quite understand the implications of it? >> there you go, my first question for the vice president-elect. you know, if you look at what was said to the prime minister of what the president of taiwan heard, i think the question is, you know, is president-elect trump shaken up some of our foreign policy norms? he ran as a candidate whoai we'll find out from the vice president-elect if this is part of that agenda. >> thank you so much for your time. again vice president-elect
