7:07 am
change that our president is taking to afghanistan. in the past, the last administration in particular, we had a changing strategy and changing tactics on the ground. there were artificial timetables for the withdraw. conditions on the ground, the drive toward a stable and peaceful afghanistan will drive american policy and will drive american decisions in the region. >> you say this is a departures from the past, the obama administration. the editor of breitbart tweeted, trump's afghanistan speech was obama's speech minus the deadline and the details. he says this strategy is similar to the strategy of barack obama. >> the truth is that the last administration engaged in a short-term surge in afghanistan and announced a timetable for withdrawal, literally emboldening the enemies.
7:08 am
that region is home to 20 different terrorist organizations that are recognized by our national government. we haven't been sending a clear signal about american commitment and reserve. taking in the view of his generals and key diplomats and state department, president trump sent a message of resolve and commitment. he said to the people of afghanistan, we are with you. to pakistan, he needs to step up. he is calling on india to be a better and strategic partner. it's a new strategy driving towards the objective of a stable and peaceful afghanistan in the long-term. >> without a timeline, this is an open-ended commitment on a war that has dragged on for 16 years. >> the pentagon in june made a request for nearly 4,000 troops to deploy in the reege gioregio.

7:10 am
to do more in pakistan. they have to stop terrorists and stop letting them operate been their borders. will he go one step further and declare pakistan a state sponsor of terrorism? >> pakistan needs to do more. we think back to the time that the mastermind of 9/11, osama bin laden, was found, living in a compound in pakistan, literally within a few short miles of their military academy. we're aware that terrorist elements that attack our troops attack innocent civilians and afghan forces, will bring violence and race across the border. what the president said to pakistan, we're putting them on notice. they have to step up as a partner, if they want to see the unite continue to partner with them, for security in the region, they need to do more to
7:11 am
confront the terrorist organizations that are using, particularly northern pakistan, waziristan area, as a safe haich haven. >> have you ever met a neo-nazi or a white nationalist or a white sprupremacist that you consider to be a fine person? >> never in my life have i met anyone associated with white supremacist or the kkk or neo-nazi movement, would i have anything other than contempt for. >> i can't remember meeting people in that category. i see them on television. as the president has made clear, we have denounced those organizations. >> but the president said that there were fine people on both sides of that rally in charlottesville. when he said those words, you obviously didn't agree with them. did they offend you, those words? >> say again. >> obviously, the president said he thought there were fine
7:12 am
people on both sides of that rally in charlottesville. when he said that, you just told me you don't agree with that. did the president o frieffend y? >> the president and i were very clear that we denounce bigotry and hatred in all its forms. he said there were fine people on both sighs of that rally. >> the president denounced white supremacists, neo-nazis and the kkk repoetedleatedlrepeatedly. he did it on sunday. on monday. and in a press conference tuesday. there was no moral equivalency. >> and when david duke heard the comments made by the president on charlottesville, he thanked the president. how can you be thanked by david duke, a white supremacist, and not be on the wrong side of the issue. >> i can't account for the views of that person or their
7:13 am
conditions. the president disavowed david duke long ago. and we disavow him, as well. the point is, i think is disc s disconcerting to the american people, our views of the bigots, the president rejected, he likened america to personnel. he said when one has patriotism for your heart, there's no room for bigotry or hatred. that's the core of this president. the core of this administration. >> you're a loyal defender of this president and you should be defended for that. other top leaders have rebuked him. business leaders have rebuked him for his comments on charlottesville. you continue to defend him. are you putting your loyalty above and in front of what's in your heart and your gut? >> i know this president. i know his heart.
7:14 am
and i heard him. i heard him on the day that the charlottesville tragedy haed wh happened when he denounced hate and violence. i heard him on that monday. and i heard him like tuesday, like millions of americans did, where he condemned the hate and the bigotry that was evidence there. >> but went back to say there was blame on both sides. >> we'll continue to do that. we understand. we understand that criticism comes with this job. and this president has the kind of broad shoulders to be able to take it. but last night, i thought what you heard the president do, in addition to announcing a new strategy that we believe is going to advance the security and the safety of the american people, advance stability for south asia for this generation and the next. what you heard this president do, and what he will continue to do, to call america to unity.
7:15 am
