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

of. i will say this, i think china has been working very hard. >> patrick, let me start with you. a lot of folks suspected one of the reasons the trump administration dropped this massive bomb in afghanistan was to send this message to north korea. what do you say to that? and if not north korea, then who else? >> the message really, all the messages are being sent to china right now, because china is the decisive player. they're the ones with influence over north korea. the trump administration has sent mixed messages to china. until the bombing of syria and this recent bomb was dropped in afghanistan, in the chinese media the talk was how trump was a paper tiger. he had raised the one china policy and questioning it, and backed down. he raised the question of china is a currency manipulator and backed down. now maybe some of these moves in syria and afghanistan have changed that calculus. the tone in the chinese media does seem to have picked up on that. >> they seem to take him more seriously? >> yes. at least they're trying to figure out how serious he is. >> gale, i want to sho

. their meeting will be about north korea certainly and notably china's president is not a part of that but president trump and president xi will have a separate meeting. the fact you've got japan and south korea meeting with president trump minus china, there are a lot of diplomatic signals in that, that suggest china needs to do more. the president is frustrated with china not doing more to prevent further case from the north and we'll see how that plays out. day is late and we're six hours ahead of new york and washington, so not much left on the agenda but very substantive meetings on this first day with the president and first lady here in hamburg. >> kelly o., thank you. let's get back to keir simmons for just a moment. just after 7:00 in hamburg, germany. you can see the pictures. we don't have keir simmons just yet. but you can see the thousands, tens of thousands who have assembled. keep in mind according to keir a significant number of the folks you see there are members of law enforcement as well. they were fully anticipating this massive protest here ahead of the g-20 so it

from china, if it pursues this reckless policy of nuclear weapons development and very dangerously for us, the missiles that can deliver those nuclear packages to places like hawaii and eventually the west coast of the united states. i take this threat very seriously. but i don't believe that we alone are able to really put the pressure on this north korean regime that needs to be placed. now, the north koreans are always interested, not just kim jong-un, but his father, before him, were always interested in trying to get americans to come to negotiate, to elevate their status and their position. and we should be very careful about giving that away. you should not offer that in the absence of a broader strategic framework to try to get china, japan, russia, south korea, to put the kind of pressure on the regime that will finally bring them to the negotiating table with some kind of realistic prospect for change. as christian said, there was a negotiation in the '90s that put an end to one aspect of their nuclear program. two ways to make it, plutonium, uranium, shut down the plutonium

of china but the willingness to stop north korea from expanding its nuclear capability. obviously past presidents have had this issue and barack obama on his way out of office repeatedly warned now president donald trump that north korea was one of the most grave and complicated threats he would face, and tillerson beginning to come into his own as a public official and grow into the office was much more about the urgency of using diplomacy but something must be done quickly. there's a sense of an amped up concern with north korea. the obvious threat to the region where we have so many allies, so the president is in some ways playing the bad cop and the secretary of state a bit more of the good cop and they represent a range of the u.s. policy and thinking right now when it comes to north korea. stern and willing to move, i think, are the under pinings of what that is with the help of china as president trump has urged the chinese president to intervene. >> jacob, let me come to you. trump in atlanta here. the next 30 or 45 minutes or so the day before his 100 days in office. tell
