-day nation's trip to asia. i want to zero in on china. i think the relationship between the united states and china is very, very important. and president trump seems to have a love/hate relationship with president xi jinping in china. he he has very warm rapport when it comes to can xi. they rolled out the red carpet. with china, they're trade abusers, they have stolen our wealth, stolen our jobs, our intellectual property. even more knew answered than that we saw him on the trip saying one thing. then he got to china and they did this great forbidden city tour, a great welcome and he backed off a little bit and said china is not to blame. it is past administrations. got bad reviews over that. a >> annie, swallows the china trip. what is it? >> in my mind you go back to north carolina and his base. they did a focus group in north carolina where it turned out only one in ten were willing to defend donald trump. you never see any sort of cracking. >> what do you put it down to? >> embarrassment. so many people said they were embarrassed by this president. these are republicans. the

diplomacy and attempt to get china to get this under control, unlikely, or, hugh, we're going to have to live with it and create a very impressive deterrent regime that would make it impossible in kim jong-un's mind that he would actually use that weapon against the united states. i think we're going to end up on number three. >> this interview, i want to talk about china. but the people's republican of china is becoming a blue water navy. what would their reaction be, admiral, if we came to a shooting conflict with north korea given the array of weaponry that the fleet has dispatched there? >> they would be deeply concerned about two things, the flow of refugees out of north korea which would impose enormous economic burdens on their region which abuts north korea, and secondly they would be deeply concerned about the possibility of the reunification of that peninsula. that's what they want to avoid because they fear the creation of a mega state much as east germany and west germany came together to create this juggernaut in europe. their game, china's, is to avoid a shooting war becaus

quote things came out of the president's very successful summit with president xi of china that were different, that were different from past efforts to work with china, which has always been the desire, right, to work with china on the north korean problem. the three things that came out of that are, first of all, that north korea, kim jong-un, armed with nuclear weapons, is a threat not only to the united states, not only to our great allies, japan and south korea, but also to china. so that's a big acknowledgment. the second thing was that the goal, the goal of working together with them cannot be the freeze for freeze, where we freeze our training and then they freeze their program. they're at a threshold capability now. freeze for freeze doesn't work anymore. it's intolerable. the goal is denuclearization of the peninsula. that's the second big thing. the third big thing that came out of it is china acknowledged they have tremendous coercive economic influence here. they may not have a great political relationship with kim jong-un, who does these days? they recognize that they d

. last year, he said he was going to dig a hole to china. at&t is working with farmers to improve irrigation techniques. remote moisture sensors use a reliable network to tell them when and where to water. so that farmers like ray can compete in big ways. china. oh ... he got there. that's the power of and. >>> welcome back. i'm hugh hewitt. white house press secretary sean spicer is on the way out and obamacare is still the law of the land. spicer disagreed over the hiring of anthony scar much chi. now senator collins of main, mike, announced they would block the opening of debate on the alternative to obama, one that was backed by 47 of the senate's 52 republicans. these four republican senators with assists from republican dean heller of nevada and ron johnson unraveled it. what's left is, well, obamacare. absent some sort of legislative lazarus obamacare remains the law of the land. spicer's departure caused a lot of talk, but the senate appeals of republican power from 2010 forward is overturned. with it republican credibility as a governing party. joining me for autopsy and

book. it is about chain's efforts to build up these artificial islands in the south china sea. they are creating forward-based military platforms, potential places for them to put large weapons, air strips. it put them in range of u.s. military allies and u.s. military themselves should there be some sort of large peer-to-peer, china versus the united states or china versus an ally. he started working on it before we have been paying attention to north korea and china. >> "crash back" sounds fascinating. a thin line has to be washed. will civilians will be able to absorb what he's writing and talking about? >> it is less about the military and more about the foreign policy piece of it. crash back refers to when a ship has to stop dead in the water to avoid collision. but that is sort of the only real military piece, that and talking about the chinese military assets. mike is a really good writer who knows how to talk to a general audience from his years of covering the military. >> that is a terrific recommendation. "crashback" definitely goes on my list. thanks to my wonderful pane

, before china built militaryized islands, before north korea had tested intercontinental ballistic missiles. before syria had become the epic civil war radiating throughout the middle east. they had $100 billion in free cash. we should not allow hands to be tied by what was passed in 2011. we should settle our budget based on the threats we have today and strategy needed to counteract. >> that brings me to where i want to end. >> like me, the president was a civilian. you're a warrior. you've been in contact. you have been in the heart of baghdad where people are shooting at you. do you have confidence in the president as commander in chief? >> i do. he has handled himself pretty well so far. north korea is not a problem president trump is making. it is one of president clinton in 1994 he signed a deal with north korea that is probably just as bad as the iran deal that president on 'bama signed. we kukked the can down the road with president bush and owe mow bottom ma's obama's tenure. it is the best option we have right now while secretary mattis and generdunford work on keepin pr

unreported win for the president. he moved from south korea to china to vietnam. what do you think of this trip? >> the meetings in and of themselves are of course newsy and significant. but the way that his rhetoric has changed, he's talking more about potentially actually negotiating. there hasn't been a test. north korea hasn't tested in 54 days now. think about the last nine months what we have been seeing out of them. >> i want to show a clip of with what i did with leader mcconnell last week. here's what he said about senators who cannot win, candidates. >> this particular element you're referring to specializes in losing elections. look, this is about winning elections. and the only way you make policy is win elections. people lose. people who win come here and make policy. so that's what this is about. >> so josh, what should the president say about roy moore? >> mitch mcconnell is right. the president said if the allegations are true -- >> that's not enough. should he say get out? >> he should. the reason they are offering a little bit of caveat, alabama is crucial. it would

? >> i'm looking ahead to the president's trip to asia. he will go to five nation, including china, japan, south korea, philippines, and vietnam. i think that will be a very important trip given our tensions with north korea and the role that china has to play in that. so that is something i'm very interested in right now. i'm reading "three days in january" by bret baier. it go the book is really about eisenhower's life and governing style. it is a fascinating look at a man who was so cautious, very measured. sometimes he got in trouble with that. sometimes people thought they needed a hard hitter and he wouldn't speak out against mccarthy, tprupbs, when they thought he needed to. it is a fascinating read. i'm not yet done with it. >> how about you, particular mccarthy -- alberta. >> i've got a couple of things in the cooker that i can't talk about. but what i can talk about and i have to be careful talking about it, i have had two interviews with mr. scalise, one at his rehabilitation facility a couple weeks ago and one after he returned on thursday. so that full interview in his

officers last year. the 20th century was a grade yard with china probably the biggest mass cull her of innocence, russia and germany not far behind. when the berlin wall came down, there was a fleeting hope that we reached the end of history and the on going expansion of lit see would bring about a peaceful 21st century, full of technological marvels and a rising economic prosperity across the globe. instead we had 9/11, an eruption of ancient hait reds, the new technology has amplified extremists, often monetized them and made the world a more perilous and unpredictable place. now the most radical regime, north korea, has nuclear weapons and missiles and iran seems poised to be in the same place in a short period of time. there's really only one solution, lincoln's solution, one articulated in his second inaugural address, an attitude of malice towards none and charity towards all. perhaps we can all add that to our to-do list for this week. thanks for watching today. keep the conversation going on see you next webbing on saturday see non-drowsy allergy pill.r

heading to tokyo, china, and the philippines. looking ahead to that, what does that mean for this president, what does it mean for the united states and what posture does president trump take after that trip on north korea? >> i have been talking to a lot of democratic strategists conducting polls in the battleground races. donald trump is more popular than they thought. paul ryan, mitch mcconnell, less popular than they thought. they would do an advertising blitz. >> house is in play? >> house is in play. very much in danger. >> you believe the house is in play? >> i do. there are enough sets, enough incumbents getting dragged down. not because of trump but because the republican party is split. a lot of republican voters won't show up. >> to al better tax yes or no? >> i actually think that the senate might be more in play than the house, believe it or not, as friendly as the map is. it is is a lack of results. >> courtney, what are you working on? >> nukes, spooks, and war. >> it's a book. >> i'm watching closely the situation in northern iraq where it looks like there is a pos

, and washington d.c. someone there for two years and leave. the amount of time you spend in china when he was working for barack obama was longer than the ambassador before and after him and so it's not like he was in a hugely unusual step of the criticism you brought up actually hurt him when they were considering someone to run the olympics. successfully ran a business and jonathan junior who has bounced around. that worked against him. i think politically it's a little different though. >> will take a couple more questions. >> in 2016 there are 15, 20, 25 republican candidates seeking the candidacy may be 30 with donald trump in the lead. in the july 2016 republican convention we see a deadlocked convention. can you see a scenario where a romney movement emerges because here's an individual who's been bringing together candidates who just yesterday said the number one mistake in my campaign in 2012 is not reaching out to minorities. someone has got the money, organization name recognition a head of the party can you see a scenario. >> as a reporter i would love to see a deadloc
