the world sees what the president is doing. one occasion i remember was the first trip to china, which was in 2009. and the president -- it was a bit of a disaster. the president did a town hall meeting in shanghai, which half of china couldn't even see because it was blocked off and the chinese wouldn't let half the people come in. didn't go and see any dissidents for example. when reagan went to moscow he went to see dissidents, etcetera, etcetera. and then he had this press conference, which was not really a press conference at all but him and hu standing there kind of looking around and it went into this massive discussion of mutual cooperation and that kind of stuff. the chinese often talk about that in public. the president was staring around looking at, catching people's eye in the front row. he was very bored. the press coverage was absolutely brutal on that. and i kind of didn't do that story because i figured we were all flying around in the same plane. everyone is going to ride over the disaster. i have to come up with something different at least as a foreign journal

federal agency that wants to shut it down. american companies are free to go create jobs in china. but they are not free to create jobs in the south carolina. the administration has 219 rules in the works that will cost the american economy $100 million each. under the current washington agenda, our economy is going to take a hit from the government of at least $100 million at least 219 times. it is reasonable to ask, is it wise to be doing all of this right now. the current regulatory burden coming out of washington far exceeds the government also andstitutional mandate i destroy job creation in our country at a time when we can least afford it. the current tax code discourages investment and reward special interest. at a time when it is clear that the tax code needs to be fundamentally reform, the first instinct to come out of washington is to come up with a new host of tax credits that make the tax code more complex. it is theal aspect, spending binge going on here in washington. it has created a massive debt that threatens our ability to create jobs and to prosper. some still denie

companies have resented the role of the internet, tied -- china, russia iran and others. they have argued it is unfair the government has the ultimate control over the underlying content of the internet and have been trying for years to move that protection away and give regulatory oversight to the u.n. or another agency. the reason they have been unable to censor the global internet and can censor their internet in their own countries as china and russia do, they devote enormous resources to censoring the internet in their own countries. the reason they have never been able to do it outside of their countries is because of this ultimate u.s. control over internet addresses and numbers. the obama administration announced that it planned to give up sanctions on the internet ending -- ending the contract with icann to handle that access of the internet. when that happened, there was a lot of opposition to it. there were a lot of countries that have long wanted control over the internet and the u.s. had done a great service by keeping the internet free. congress through budgeting laws

countries. your efforts to further build a constructive relationship with china will set a backdrop for the region and beyond. you have personally pushed for the transpacific partnership, together with chile and new zealand, into what will be a major trading group linking both sides of the pacific. i know that america has many preoccupations both at home and abroad. some americans are anxious and frustrated with economic uncertainty and the uneven results of globalization, trade, and foreign engagement. but the u.s. has many investors and friends in the region. these strengthen the united states. singapore fervently hopes the u.s. will stay engaged and maintain its indispensable role in the asia-pacific. in particular, we hope, and i'm sure the president shares this hope, that congress will ratify the tpp soon. not only will the tpp benefit american workers and businesses, it will send a clear and vital signal that america will continue to lead in the asia-pacific and continue to enhance partnerships that link our countries together. singapore's own ties with the united states have

making friends for us and we are not borrowing money from china. that's the kind of thing that makes sense. that's the kind of thing we also should be doing in south and central america so that they won't feel the need to come here. the other thing we need to be isnking about in that regard sealing our borders. the fact of the matter is, having gone down there recently and looked at how -- anybody could get through there. the fences they have would barely slow me down when i was a kid. there's no border guards. the border guards are all 70 miles inland. why are they called border guards if they are not on the border? and when they capture people, ice tells them to release them. a lot of those people are not from honduras and mexico. somalia from iraq and and russia and many of them are hardened criminals. it seems like our federal government is actually fighting against the sheriff's and these people who are down there and look in -- i sat with some of the families and they told me the horror stories about how frightening it was. they are some incredibly brave americans to do that. w

some of them. but the test is -- is is so critical that it is worth borrowing money from china to pay for? right now we are funding most of these things by borrowing money from people that will demand interest and pay back at some point. i will eliminate a lot of programs. the -- even the ones that i like. no. 2, there are programs that we need to keep in place that can be run far more efficiently as we return to the states. one of those is medicaid, for instance, the program for the poor. taking last year's no., inflating it, saying to iowa that there's a mandate and you cover it. you structure that and give the state time to organize programs of that nature. just out of medicaid, making that change, growing it out of state direction saves $100 billion per year. there are 47 different work force training programs that have been put in place in the federal government. the gao did an evaluation of those programs. they did not find any of them to be effective. i would take all of that money, bundle it, send it back to the states and say that you craft year-round programs to train your o

and as american workers compared to china and the debt create problems for your and products? with the idea of the -- how are we supposed to compete with the labor and wages lost compared to year and over there? >> if i understand the question, can the u.s. base compete with the competitor based in a different part of the world with a different labor standards? is that the labour -- is that the nature of the question? it is an issue, no doubt about it. there are parts of the world with lower cost of capital and lower unit labor rates than we have. that's a statement of the problem, not a reason to give up. what we need to do is look at where we want to compete. there are some sectors where we cannot allow our product technology or manufacturing technology bring enough to that sector to make a sustainable business out of it and we will exit those businesses. but we have found that there are enough places thanks to our intellectual property where we can create a product that has value for the consumer in those developing regions where they are willing to pay price of the u.s. manufac

now of downgrading the military, china is moving into my region now. fiji is a client state. they are training the military. ago, the australian minister was up in china for talks and a top chinese general said to him now is the time for australia to choose. do you want an american godfather or a chinese godfather? if you are smart, you will choose china because we are the region. folks, around the world your allies are being forced to make a choice. countries like israel, great britain, germany, canada, japan, they are all basically freaking out because the leadership they see coming out of your white house, they see that your president seems to love the bad guys of the world more than he loves them. and that is causing huge instability folks. we have japan which is now rearming. they were never supposed to rearm after world war ii but they are now rearming because they cannot trust obama to protect them from north korea and china. look at how many of your allies climbed aboard when obama wanted go into syria. that shows where american prestige has gone. vladimir putin, the old k

like humanity -- serbs, russians indians, amish the people's republic of china. it's broadly troubled but it's hard to know how to help. as you work upstream toward home you're more closely related. the big river is like your nation, a little out of hand. the lake is your cousin. the creek is your sister. the pond is your child. and for better or worse, in sickness and in health you are married to your sink. then there's the late, great carl sagan. your wonderful scientist, environmentalist. anyone who used to watch him on television will remember he used to talk about billions and billions of stars. he would make nature and science come alive. he was a wonderful man. he said this. he said anything else you are interested in is not going to happen if you cannot breathe the air and drink the water. don't sit this one out. do something. you are by accident of fate alive in an absolutely critical moment in the history of our planet. that would be my message to you guys, the younger people in the room. it's not like me saying okay we're handing over this problem to you. this is g

advertisements attacking jon huntsman for speaking mandarin. as you know, he was the ambassador to china and is fluent in that language. i have seen advertisements criticizing him for speaking that language, implying that he would be too great of a friend to china. host: edgar, welcome to "washington journal." caller: i wanted to make just a few comments. i am a conservative republican they used to be a libertarian. to begin with, i believe in the newt gingrich assessment of mitt romney. i read his book, where he said the highest we could spend on defense would be gross domestic pot -- product at 6%. the chinese have developed a stealth fighter, and they criticize ron paul. innocent american citizens die in car accidents, as far as legalizing narcotics. and the economy, we will need to reform the federal reserve, but not put an end to it. a national currency generates huge economies of scale. my vote would be for the more experienced and knowledgeable speaker of the house, newt gingrich. thank you very much. and your program is great. host: let me use his comments to let the audience see

and china, to apply the strongest set of sanctions iran has ever faced. those sanctions brought iran to the negotiating table. it cuts off pathways to a weapon and its ability to a bomb, congress would be wise to support it. on the other hand, if iran is found to be cheating, it's leaders must know we stand ready to his to do the full array of sanctions that decimated their economy. but no threat probably better illustrates the unintended consequences of a mindless rush to war and a lack of understanding than the emergence of i since. containing, degrading and defeating ices will require an integrated approach. an approach focused on military power and political solutions. the invasion of iraq along with the disbandment of the iraqi army and military will be remembered as one of the most tragic, deceitful, and costly blunders in u.s. history. we are still paying the price of a war pursued under false pretenses and acquiesced to in the words of dr. king -- by the appalling silence of the good. in confronting isis, we must avoid mission creep, that is true. and we must be mindful

iran? the sanctions on the central bank because it is more difficult for russia and china and other actors to help them upgrade the sanctions. if we decided we want to impose penalties to deter them from terrorist activities, and reimpose sanctions on the central bank, that that will be a material breach to the accord. secretary kerry: no. mr. flake: ok, that will not. assuming this goes into effect, we are going to need desperately need a regional security framework. you have touched on and some discussions are already going on. i would just encourage you that i understand the problem with 535 secretaries of state can't have that, but i would encourage you to reach out to at least the relevant committees here as that framework is put in place to make sure that it can conjure longer -- and you are -- endure longer than just the first few years. we all know to have the best 42 to move ahead, it is best to have congress involved. and there are many points between 535 secretaries of state and proper consultation with the relevant committees, at least -- secretary kerry: i couldn't conc

deny the fact that she is older, but their china to co-opt some of the criticisms that will be raised against her. as the caller was earlier asking questions about her age and health, they are trying to get out ahead of that sort of thing. they are crafting a different strategy. some people think it is a little too generic. you see the speech described as something any candidate for senate or congress could have given and not a presidential speech. as josh also pointed out, i think a speech like that is not where you will get dollars and cents figures about how much she wants to raise the minimum wage. it is a broad brush. host: to new york, a democrat, you are our last. go ahead. caller: i am proud of hillary and what she said yesterday's beautiful. i want to tell her to keep on fighting for the democratic party. host: all right. let's hear from both of our reporters on what they're watching next for 2016. guest: the big question is whether jeb bush can get question -- traction. they get a bump in the poll. walker has an announcement, he certainly has momentum from his speeche

did they come from? they came from china. investigators traced more than 70% of suspect counterfeit electronic parts back to china. the committee report concluded that china is the dominant source for counterfeit electronic parts infiltrating the supply train -- supply chain. that the chinese government knows about that that does nothing to stop it. we know how quickly consumer electronics become obsolete. it is a matter of months, not years, yet we build weapon systems that last for decades. this means that many of their electronic parts become obsolete. the situation sometimes forces contractors to rely on riskier suppliers beyond original manufacturers, authorized dealers, and trusted suppliers. my amendment would incentivize the dod and suppliers to reduce risk and craft effective remedies in cases of obsolete parts. mr. chairman, i would like to thank you for allowing this amendment, and i yield back. >> the gentleman yields back. ms. davis recognized for two minutes. >> thank you, mr. chairman. i bring this to your attention largely because we had a bipartisan delegation of wo

, the numbers of people brought into the near and middle-class in china and india and many other countries. a century ago this month, the battle of verdun was just beginning. the most excruciating chapter over hebrew -- of a horrific war that would cause 37 million casualties and kill one german and one frenchman out of every five. -- 75 years ago, to be precise, millions of refugees were streaming not into europe, but out of europe. seeking refuge from a confrontation with fascism that would climax in unprecedented savagery and the holocaust. 50 years ago, half of europe hidden behind the iron curtain. a quarter of a century ago, europe was witness to a brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing that would rage for years. my friends, we cannot come to munich, to a security conference, and ignore the underlying message of this history. this moment is not as overwhelming as people think it is. we know what needs to be done. most importantly, we have the power to do it. the transatlantic community is not strong because we somehow have been exempt from tragedy or strife. we are strong beca

simplify but donald trump has simplified it. he said your jobs went to china and i will bring them back. what is interesting is the issue about coal that donald trump has said i'm going to bring back the coal industry and he has but he hasn't been real explicit how. part of it is to remove regulations which is seen to help kill the coal industry but what that would do is make coal more plentyful which would bring the price down which is killing coal now because it has been brought down. so this idea if you get rid of the regulations coal comes back it's not that simple. host: yesterday when donald trump made his announcement we knew ahead of time that he was choosing indiana governor mike pence. he was critical of hillary clinton's support for nafta. however, his running mate mike pence has spoke about the benefits of nafta for his state of indiana. do you think that matters? guest: i don't think so. i think mike pence was more there to reassure ohio's social conservatives and the nation's social conservatives than anything else but you do raise an interesting issue that trade has been

country. we say to china, come to our naval academy, but then we kick them out to work for the chinese military. let's staple a green card to their diploma, at one of the key things. an act with a stem visa -- these are not going to solve all the problems. there are things around the dream act and comprehensive immigration reform that people will debate for some time. but focusing heavily on this issue that is about entrepreneurship and job creation is important. there are opportunities in the next month or two to work on the house and senate, where there is enormous overlap. we agree that something is important for the nation to focus on, people essentially agree on 80%, 90% of the solution. how do we make sure the politics, particularly in an election year, don't get in the way of the right policies for our nation? i encourage, i am optimistic, but it will take everybody working on this and focusing it together. aaronson and young, which has its entrepreneur of the year for every year, ast previous winners to come to washington later this month, at a march on washington to ma

office in china. we consider it a very strong marketplace for what comes out of north dakota. that is how that started. the exporting side into china and when you do that, there is a reciprocal agreement that develop. it is very strong that way. china is a huge market. no doubt about it. there are certain the opportunities available in north dakota. we had a regional office in north dakota. and china is a huge market to develop for investors coming into north dakota. they may come or may not be her own company in, but they will bring capital into north dakota to invest into existing companies. that is a very strong component. that we callgram export assistance. we take graduate level students from there is countries internationally and replace them in companies in the state of north dakota on a part-time basis. china, we have students from china who come here, work with the companies, understand what they are doing, where they are going, they want to remain, or they want to go back to china and so that relationship really a strengthened between our what iss here and happening back

would be a strategic blunder, it would empower iran and china long-term and you can see china is one of the major beneficiaries of all of these years of efforts in afghanistan. the greatest victory for the united states since world war ii, the greatest strategic victory has been the cold war where we were able over a period , of years to face down and expansionist soviet union with a strong military but not -- not allowing this to become a fighting war. we had ancillary wars, i for the -- fought in one and was wounded in one in vietnam and korea. but basically we put together , the right sort of overall strategy so this thing didn't blow up. with respect to the middle east, in the situation with isis, the first question we have to resolve -- and i think we have -- is whether or not any of these entities constitutes a threat to the united states rather than simply locally, and i think isis has crossed the line. i think we can fairly say that now. then, the question is, what sorts of activities will stop them? what sorts of activities will diminish their attractiveness as one of a number

: with respect to china, the american consumer is funding the building of their military and their economic prowess. did we ever talk about not only having them pay for what they pay for what that -- pay for what they know at the u.n., -- u.n.? ambassador power: the fact of the matter is we as a nation have an interest in global health security, because of the globalized economy, goods of people are crossing the border. i think it doesn't really get at the core national security linkages and human security linkages that exist in 2015. i would note on peacekeeping that peacekeeping is a major prosecution, it is not all forces that are going in and protecting civilians. we are taking advantage of the global system as well, in order to ensure issues of shares security are being patrolled and demand about -- patrolled and manned by other individuals that americans. peacekeeping share that we pay still leaves the rest of the shares. to put aside the fact that there are other countries going to the dangerous places. other countries are paying 72% of the bill. if you look at nato expense

country first. he criticized me while he was out raising money. for serving my country in china. yes, under a democrat. like my two sons are doing in the united states navy. i want to be very clear to the people here in new hampshire. i will always put my country first. i think that is important. [applause] we serve art -- >> we serve our country first by doing everything in our power to promote an agenda does not include president obama's agenda. i think the decision to work for president obama -- i do not disrespect your decision. the person who should represent our party, running against president obama, is not someone you called him a remarkable leader and went to be his ambassador in china. >> this stage is divided, david, because of attitudes like that. [applause] the american people are tired of the partisan division. there is no trust left among the american people and the institutions of power. we have had enough. we have to change our direction in terms of coming together as americans. let's talk substance. named three areas where americans will feel a real pain in order to

also china, we have a return to great state competition. lookthat means is when we a certain areas when you look at it through the lens of not just a failed a by proxy warfare as well. i think we're seeing certain echoes of that. we will need to be able to learn the lessons in the past of what does and does not working proxy me oure and refra approaches. and focus on how do you keep a lid -- how do you win a competition they keep a lid on it from escalating. >> thank you all. >> general, just a follow-up on your comment. you say we would have to take some actions to reassure our allies, other nations in the region in the middle east. what actions with those be? >> i think we need to reach out to saudi arabia and the united arab emirates, kuwait, jordan, and egypt and sit down with them and say we are here. i think some of the things we're talking about -- >> we say that all the time. >> and then put in place -- when you look at it and look at egypt, perhaps some of the best comments i've heard on a strategy for egypt is how you give them stability? how to get them security? you have to
