quote week's summit in florida, look at this, a report in the stars and stripes makes this point. china is reluctant to go too far due to fears that a north korean regime collapse could lead to a refugee crisis and possibly bring u.s. forces closer to its borders. what change would you expect china to make moving forward? >> i think the united states expects too much of china when it comes to north korea. because china is north korea's largest trading partner and because it shielded north korea from harsher sanctions in the past, washington tends to think that china can deliver a deal on north korea. what i think the new administration really needs to focus on is working with china to enforce the sanctions on the books and coming up with a joint strategy for talks. that should include an effort to try and freeze north korea's nuclear and missile programs and put something on the table as a benefit for north korea if it's willing to take those steps. >> when you listen to water cooler talk among my friends and family, here's what scares people. north korea is believed to be developing a lon

day with the treasury secretary, steven mnuchin with a message i think largely aimed at china. here he was on fox news this morning. >> i did speak with the president, and it's clear that this behavior is completely unacceptable. we've already started with sanctions against north korea, but i'm going to draft a sanctions package to send to the president for his strong consideration that anybody that wants to do trade or business with them would be prevented from doing trade or business with us. >> so north korea's most important business partner is china, so file that away for a second. then later in the day you had the president asked whether he planned to attack north korea come out with a statement that said we'll see, not taking it off the table. that statement clearly aimed at the north koreans themselves, making it clear the president hasn't ruled out military force. then you pick up with mattis, who laid this out in more clear terms talking, obviously, to the north koreans and america's allies, saying our commitment is ironclad, the security council backs us and any attempt w

when global growth rates were weak already, this doesn't help. when we attend the g20 summit in china later this year, one of the major topics, which is something i've continually advocated for during the 7 1/2 years i've been president is we all have to look at what we can do to boost global demand. whether it's the united states adopting a more robust budget for infrastructure improvements and fixing water systems in flint, michigan, or repairing airports that are not as efficient as they should be, or rebuilding our power grid so that it can take advantage of clean energy. whether it's germany, a country with a surplus doing more in terms of spending or europe as a whole lifting some of the austerity constraints placed on them, whether it's china shifting to more consumer based as opposed to trying to export its way out of problems. there are going to be a whole host of measures that all of us can take to fortify the global economy. and that should be a top priority of ours. with respect to the actual brexit negotiations, my main message to david cameron, angela merkel and others i

conflict. it may be don't be a tweet to a debate over the korean peninsula. china should be more helpful which led to that country to have storm clouds gathering. as you may know, his twitter account went quiet after north korea did launch a missile test which allegedly failed. trump has proven reticent. no white house statement. jim mattis released a statement that said he is aware, but had no further comment and no tweets about north korea though trump has tweeted five times since that last night. the rare quiet moments do stand out. the chinese philosopher said silence shows great strength and one observed said it's the weak who starts riots and the strong move quiet. is trump taking that approach? does the calm after the storm reflect the limits of tough talk? or look, there are other possibilities. maybe this is another one of those fleeting tactics in a foreign policy that seems to only react to other countries' actions without thinking through and planning out an action plan of its own. now we'll talk about the politics of all this in a moment. but first, on the foreign po

believe that south korea and japan will put up with this much longer, perhaps china will put a heavy move on north korea and end this nonsense once and for all. so what specifically does the president mean by a heavy move? well, the white house isn't saying. but we know the administration has really been pressuring china to try to turn up the heat on north korea. president trump spending the early days of his presidency trying to foster a relationship with the president of china through a series of meetings and phone calls. now the reality check, the fact that they don't feel as though these efforts have been working and it comes amid new tensions between the united states and china, just last week, in fact, the administration announced a new round of sanctions including on a chinese bank. that infuriated china. over the weekend, president trump had a stern conversation with the president of china. expect more tough talk when he meets them at the g-20 summit in the coming days. but as hans was pointing out, there aren't a whole lot of good options here. they have put a lot of sanctio

, specifically on trade policy. so, for example, trade violations against china in front of the world trade organization, labelling china a currency manipulator. these are moves the campaign believes will play as overtures to companies here in the united states who feel exploited by chinese trade practices. it's also a way, i'm told, by a senior aide familiar with the crafting of this speech to drive a wedge, the campaign believes, between hillary clinton and union workers. blue-collar working class voters, the very people trump needs in places like pennsylvania in order to have a shot at beating hillary clinton come the fall. polling shows he is fairly neck in neck with her in pennsylvania according to the new q poll out last week. he then heads to ohio, his first stop in the key battleground in eight weeks since he became the presumptive republican nominee. for context, hillary clinton has been in ohio three times in the last three weeks. it's interesting when you look at the stage behind me, it's different staging than what we've seen from trump before. normally he has big rallies forhe

interests to discuss with the philippines because china is trying to dismember that country. we have a mutual defense treaty with manila. so we have to talk to him. but cozying up, no. because as senator mccain said, our interests are our values and our values are our interests. and duterte has been responsible for killing thousands perhaps ten of thousands of drug dealers in what is essentially state sanctioned murder. so we should talk about these things and we should talk when them in public because human rights discussions in private with the chinese, with duterte, they don't really work very well. with what these leaders are concerned about is their public image. that is where the united states can really move them in better directions by talking about this in front of the world. >> and gordon, put the philippines in context for us. how important is the philippines to the u.s.? >> philippines right now is critical. because china is trying to take over the south china sea. that is a body of water which somewhere between $3 trillion and $5 trillion of commerce passes each year. they

japan, the president of china and late last week had the president of south korea here at the white house. this has been issue number one for the president when it comes to really all of asia. remember, the president was already upset with north korea over the otto episode from a few weeks ago. this continues to ratchet up the tensions and puts north korea potentially at the top of the g-20 checklist for the president when he gets to germany later this week. >> let me ask you about the other matter that you've been following and that is the meeting between vladimir putin and donald trump. it's going to take place on friday afternoon. what's on the agenda and what isn't and really the question i'm trying to get to is the discussion of russia interfering in the u.s. election going to be on the agenda? >> reporter: that's a good question and the white house has not said for sure one way or the other whether that will be something the president brings up. the official line was there hadn't been an agenda set for this meeting, but it's been fascinating to watch the diplomatic dance aroun
