do you get china? and there are those who have surmised that the president was speaking just as much yesterday to china as he was to kim jong-un. how do you get china to partner with us in this particular endeavor, knowing full well that the idea of a unified korea scares them? >> well, craig, i don't think the way to get china to partner with us is to scare them that an american president might take a preemptive attack on north korea. they have vested interests there. they know they need to do something. i think president trump, in terms of his previous tweets saying i've tried to talk to china, they haven't been helpful. that has put them on notice. they don't want korean unification. i thought secretary tillerson's statement last week, where he said, look, we're not looking for regime change in north korea. that was meant to calm the chinese and make them feel like they can get into the water and start helping us. >> doug, really quickly here. and you mentioned this -- you allude todayed to it a few moments ago in terms of their technology. the knowns and the unknowns. what's your

about trade and we're sick of the trade deficit we have with china. the problem is, these things are not as simple to fix as the president makes them out to be. china's currency, they used to manipulate it in a way to create a trade surplus, now it's about china's weak economy. it's not like they're doing something they can just stop doing. and then the president has a lot of other requests to china. it wants china to be helpful with north korea. the president has tried to stake out a hard line with china and wling blinked when he he said china and taiwan are one country. to even get on the phone with china, the president had to say he did support the one china policy. so this is definitely an effort to move the conversation. >> currency manipulation, jobs, trade, david, these are the kinds of populist messages that really resonated with a lot of voters during the campaign, argue wably those are some of t major reasons donald trump is in the white house today. how real is the worry that all of that is getting lost amid the incessant conversation about russia and ties to russia and th

the foreign policy plans for china but let's begin with breaking news on that deadly warehouse fire in oakland, california. we just learned from officials that 36 people died in that blaze and they expect the number to rise. the cause of the fire still unknown. and recovery efforts have been stopped because the building is so unstable. >> just after midnight, we had some crews doing some surveilling and reconnaissance on the next door roof and noticed a slight lean in the parapit at the top of the exterior wall. for us as firefighters working under a wobbly potentially collapsing exterior wall is extremely dangerous. >> nbc's steve patterson is outside of the warehouse. >> reporter: the death toll increasing from 33 to 36 people. this was already one of the worst fires if not the worst fire in oakland history in a place that's known for fires. the 1991 oakland hills fire killed 25 people and that number already 36 and the most heartbreaking thing to hear on scene is they certainly almost assuredly expect that number to increase as they continue to comb through the building. the next

the one belt, one road forum in china. and what you hope to get out of that. >> so america first didn't mean america alone ever. so what we have done is advanced the president's agenda in national security by strengthening alliances by burden sharing. americs dot have to bankroll everythi, and our allies and partners are grateful for the president's leadership in asking them to do more. so there's an alliance in which each of the members are doing their fair share. the president has done a great deal to strengthen our alliances. and america first didn't mean america not leading. so for america to secure and advance its interest, that requires american leadership. and so the president's leadership has been welcomed in all the places that we'll be visiting on this trip. and his agenda, i think he laid out in the campaign, is being operationalized and implemented by his cabinet with the assistance of our team in the white house. >> two questions. first -- [ inaudible ] -- and also to nbc news yesterday, the president said that general mattis and his other generals would be announcin

his column this morning. they would much rather prefer to have china do the heavy lifting here. that it's in china's interest. i think it's part of the messaging strategy. the reason they gave me an exclusive interview was to get some focus on the messaging strategy, which is china, step up, or we'll step in. and that's a very dangerous situation. we also talked candidly. we're not talking about thousands of casualties. we're talking about hundreds of thousands or millions of casualties if it's a shooting war on north korean soil. >> yeah, so we have been talking for a while, david, about how there is no good military option. in fact, no not just are the military options not good, they're pretty awful, and they are deadly. so you do write in your column today, and i like the way you start it. here's a contrarian thought. president trump had the right instinct to insist china help resolve the nightmare problem of north korea. make your case. >> well, i think that president trump's instinct after campaigning angrily about china, china's economic rape of the united states. he called it

sanctions. this rare case in foreign policy where the u.s. is on the same page with china and russia. imposing sanctions against north korea for its threatening missile launches. the u.s. managed to coax china, russia and the rest of the u.n. security council to unanimously agree on a billion-dollar bite out of north korea's export revenue. following two icbm tests at the beginning and end of july. north korea not taking that punishment well. threatening the u.s. the country's official news agency issued this statement. there is no bigger mistake than the united states believing that its land is safe across the ocean. nbc's kristen welker joins us from bridge water, new jersey, where she is with president trump, who is on his working vacation. or as he would say, he's not on vacation at all. but we'll talk about that later. kristen, i understand that president trump spoke with secretary rex tillerson today, what, an hour-long conversation? >> reporter: an hour-long conversation, which included the newly installed chief of staff, john kelly. sort of underscores the new role of the chi

russia and china. china is the key to this. president trump's conversation with the leader of china just last week is being seen as significant, but in the end this missile test and north korea developing a missile it says is a medium to long range missile, more sophisticated than previous tests, north korea says, as well as there was a political message here, aimed directly at the new administration, it's no coincidence people think the missile was fired towards japan, falling into the sea short of japanese waters at the same time as the president was meeting with the prime minister of japan and the world is watching to see how washington responds and particularly how president trump responds. his response over the weekend limited perhaps cautious but how will this play out in the weeks and months to come? because the real fear is that north korea is vowing to develop a long range missile, a nuclear capable missile able to reach the mainland of the u.s. >> keir simmons in seoul, south korea. elliot engel the ranking member on the house foreign affairs committee. congressman, good t

have reached an impasse with china to get them to put more pressure on north korea. how are you going to get them to and what is president trump going to say to president xi on that issue? >> we did have a pretty good exchange on north korea. i would say the russians see it a little differently than we do. so, we are going to continue those discussions and ask them to do more. russia does have economic activity with north korea. i would also hasten to add, russia's official policy is the same as ours, a denuclearized korean peninsula. there is a difference in terms of view of tactics and pace and so we will continue to work with them to see if we cannot persuade them as to the urgency that we see. i think with respect to china, what our experience with china has been and i have said this to others, it's been a bit uneven. china has taken significant action and then, i think, for a lot of different reasons, they paused and didn't take additional action. they have taken some steps, then they paused. there, i think, in our own view, there are a lot of, perhaps, explanations why those pau
