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

trump can do with immigration reform what richard nixon did in china. i know that democrats, for reasons they believe to be appropriate, are coming up with this resistance effort, but i think nancy pelosi needs to meet with paul ryan. i think that mitch mcconnell and chuck schumer need to have a meeting, call a truce and say, hey, we're going to do whatever we need to do on each side, but we're calling a truce on immigration reform. the president needs to meet with four of them, not just our side, but four of them, and agree on a program 37 if he wants this wall, listen, at this stage of the game, i think, you know, we're willing to spend that unnecessary money as long as we find a compassionate, fair answer to the 12 million people who are living here with an uncertain future. >> so, before the inauguration, al, you told "the tampa bay times" that because his approval rating in terms of trump was so low that the president was "going to have to do well and do well early," and a survey monkey poll says 46% of adults approve of his handling of the job while 32% disapprove. how do you think

they want to make sure the message is clear that the current u.s. policy has not changed toward china. and by extension toward taiwan, which means the u.s. formally recognizes only the people's republic of china. we have an informal and business relationship with taiwan. but this is a very sensitive issue. we have to remember how sort of contentious the u.s./china relationship is to begin with. so they are not wanting to talk about this. the chinese foreign minister has said they let it be known, they were not pleased with this call. the white house isn't commenting on this. it's been a while since a phone call could stir this kind of international turmoil. but it does suggest a couple different scenarios. either donald trump intentionally wanted to sort of rattle the international norms by making this call or receiving this call, which was a range. these are scheduled calls. >> that's a good point staffers bring up. >> yes. and clearly, taiwan wants to highlight this, because it elevates their status in the world. to be seen as on equal footing with a future president. so there are m
