obama getting a reception. certainly the bush family was close with the saudis, and president george w. bush and h.w. bush both received this kind of welcome. i think the saudis wanted this visit to go well. they wanted to make sure that president trump was treated like a very important leader, someone that they wanted to restore the relationship with after the acrimony, and i think largely they did that. i think the smile on the president's face was genuine, that he felt that he was being treated, you know, like the leader he feels he deserving to be treat ed some of the backlas has been partly because president trump when he was a citizen criticized that first lady michelle obama didn't wear a head scarf. this is what he tweeted -- many are people say -- but they were insulted. we have enough enemies. give us a reality check on this, elise. >> president trump didn't declare his candidacy at that point, but certainly he was considering it. i think it's another thing, it's the rhetoric of being a citizens or a candidate versus governing. it's up to every woman who is in an official del

as becoming reckless with force, they've got to go back to how the george h.w. bush administration handled it going into kuwait and kicking saddam out of there some years ago when jim baker was secretary of state. they very carefully laid the groundwork before they took action. they went to the u.n. and all of the countries in europe and went around the middle east and collected money to help pay for it and built up international pressure so it looked like that was -- everybody agreed that was the right way to do it and wound up united states got paid more money than it cost. you know, it does seem to me in this particular instance they need to bring china into the game much more fully and visibly. chinese can talk directly to the north koreans and put together a peace conference of some sort. and we need to get the chinese pushed into strengthening sanctions but this is a moment of great delicacy. senator mccain is absolutely right, this is a far more urgent problem for american foreign policy than is the syrian situation, isis situation which will go on for a fairly long time. >>

your take on the meeting between bannon, kushner and priebus? >> if you go back to george washington, the first president of the united states, he had this situation going on with thomas jefferson and alexander hamilton and it has persisted in every administration throughout to this moment. these are normal tension that is can revolve around points of you view. they're there. the important thing to remember is the single most important thing is the president of the united states. it's donald donald trump. he gets to run it. just remember at the end of the day it's the president. >> do you think people should care whether there's infighting? it's nothing new that there might be staff shake-ups? >> i do think it's important and while white house rivalries are as old as the presidency it self, and sometimes they can work, i do think that we should care about this it because of the exceptional bitterness of the knife fight this early in an administration. we've had a proxy battle of apparent leaks in the media vicious from team bannon and team kushner all weeklong and this lev
