nuclear deal? >> and china. >> i'm sure he is happy to call up mexico and strike some new deals as a result. we don't know that i will ld to more prosperity. that is not clear, and trump hasn't really taken steps to clarify any of this. he hasn't sort of laid out his foreign policy in a big address or any sort of comprehensive way. he has done sort of interviews here and there. the plans during the campaign were left vague. perhaps deliberately. he is not giving assurances. >> i was skimming spanish newspapers this morning regarding the mexican president's decision not to come across mexico, across latin america, over to spain. a lot of those countries saying good for him for cancelling that meeting amid the uncertainty, amid the disrespect that they believe he was shown. we should all take cue from mexico on what to do here. yes, democrats on capitol hill who represent texas and other border states, other business leaders have warned china is ready, willing, and already there not only in mexico, but across latin america, building factories, exporting goods. they are more than happy

wall and maybe the government will shut down. backed away from that. talked about the one china policy or criticizing the one china policy and make diverting from that. that didn't happen. china is a currency manipulator. that didn't happen. so because he says so many things that sort of end up not being true or not coming to fruition, i think sometimes it's his words in some ways might not hold the same weight as a previous president who didn't speak in that sort of way. >> that's kind of dangerous if kim jong-un interprets that, that in these domestic spending things, with a show down that's not belligerent towards you. if kim jong-un thinks president trump is not serious, this goes nowhere. i think part of the calculation is the president wants to convince kim jong-un he is serious. the military posture is going to stay. it you need to back off. stop meftitesting missiles and i'm willing to come to the tail. not just to talk. come to the table for negotiations about dismantling the program. >> i do think he's starting to realize how much his words do matter. in the reuters in

shifts in his policy on china this week, and, yes. as we watch merkel here, i mean, a lot of talk about trump's meeting with putin and this may be actually the most important one and xi. >>> compared to a lot of leaders we've seen trump meet with, she doesn't pull punches and not afraid to sit or stand side-by-side in a news conference and make clear she doesn't agree with his world view and the statements she's made in germany ahead of her own elections coming up about the united states not being a reliable partner, it's a catchy sound bite, but when you really think about that, when you think about the fact the strongest country in europe does not see the united states as a strong partner, we're talking about a complete shift in the global dynamic when that happens and seen her reach out to china, importantly, to fill some of this void. >> a great point. getting through this, overly wonky and economic, but if the united states pulls back, says we'll reconsider every one of our trade agreements and angela merkel said you can't look at u.s./germany trade, we're a part of the europ

which the entire world has joined us in, and with the engagement of china and russia, two of north korea's closest neighbors, that they can begin to persuade the regime that they need to reconsider the current pathway they're on. >> reporter: even as administration officials are saying today that the president's words yesterday were not planned, fire and fury, that it was not surprising, but not an expected formulation or an intentional new american threat with some meaning behind it. just to be clear, when you look at the military options here, and we have said this many times on the air before. they are not only horrific, in that you have the chance of enormous collateral damage, civilians in south korea, u.s. troops stationed there as well. but there's also a handicap here in that u.s. intelligence inside north korea is not great. they don't know for sure where all the nuclear forces are buried as it were, where they are hidden. that's by design, north korea has mobile launchers, they move them around, they're buried under ground, so that hampers the effectiveness of any militar

about it, but this indicates there is no diplomatic progress although they praised china saying they are putting pressure on north korea. it's symbolic and important with president trump saying i'm not backing down. you only get to the table if you agree up front, no nuclear weapons. >> it is literally a material thing that came on the heels of this asia trip. that is something the people were asking. what comes out of this trip and all the making nice with various leaders is one thing and building relationships is one thing, but what comes out of this? this sounds like one of the signals and it's worth noting concessions have not worked. that is the philosophy. we are doing this a different way and there is a solid argument for doing it. >> does it matter is the question? some thought the president might announce they speak to the parliament and might announce along the way. he clearly waited perhaps to judge the reaction of the other leaders. i would note we are in the longest stretch without a north korean missile test. no one can figure out why kim jong un does what he does.
