coming days. in light of this, secretary of state rex tillerson today urging china to use its leverage to restrain its ally. >> i am hopeful that china as a great country, a world power, will decide on their own and will take it upon themselves to use that very powerful tool of oil supply to persuade north korea to reconsider its current path towards weapons development, reconsider its approach to dialogue and negotiations in the future. that is a very powerful tool. and it has been used in the past. and we hope china will not reject that or discard that. >> nbc pentagon correspondent hans nichols joins me now. hans, what more do we know about north korea moving these missile launchers? put it in context for us. >> the rhetoric hasn't changed out of north korea. we saw that overnight with their hot language on japan and the u.s., and their activity hasn't changed, visa vis their ballistic missile program. what u.s. intelligence officials have seen is this idea they're moving assets around, they're moving hardware around, they may be preparing some sites. that's consistent with the kind

this outlaw regime and i applaud china's latest action to restrict its trade with north korea. and in particular i applaud china for breaking off all banking relationships with north korea, something that people would have thought unthinkable even two months ago. i want to thank president xi. here in the western hemisphere we have seen the heartbreaking tragedy of socialist rule in venezuela. spain has been especially helpful in promoting the interests and well being of the venezuelan people and we thank you for your efforts. we hope our friends in the eu will soon follow the united states, canada and many latin american nations in sanctioning the maduro regime. the citizens of venezuela have endured political unrest under maduro oppressive regime. together spain and the united states hope for peace for the restoration of democracy and for the release of all political prisoners. wherever socialism spreads misery follows. the people of venezuela deserve a future of freedom. these are great people. in the economic arena we support trade that benefits both spain and the united states

relationship of a foreign leader to the press. we saw that in china there were no questions taken when the two leaders appeared for what in the united states would typically be a joint statement and then taking questions. so, we do see a different approach to how to handle the press on overseas trips. what we have not seen from president trump publicly is defending the role of the press in these sort of settings where there's a chance to observe the two leaders to ask a relevant question. we have not seen him publicly stand up for the access that the united states certainly would typically want to represent around the world as one of the american values when an american president travels, especially in places where press freedoms are not upheld. so, it is hard to know in that instance what the president heard, didn't hear. sometimes there's the translation issue. it's hard to know exactly what he was thinking at that time but we know he has not publicly spoken out urging that his counterparts would be more willing to take questions. we have heard that the president came back on air for

the rise of china that his place in the white house no longer seemed to fit in the new order being brought about by john kelly. what is also notable to me in the statement from the press secretary, is that it indicates that john kelly, the chief of staff, and steve bannon, the outgoing chief strategist agree this would be his last day. this is a signal this is a john kelly move. the president has to sign off on such a thing, but this is a reordering of power inside the white house. there was voices in both parties loudly calling for his ouster, but there is a longer track record of that. so on a muggy, summer friday, when the president is probably in a skiff, a secure room at camp david for several hours now, that all of this is playing out and he is probably without his phone. he will emerge from this, perhaps we will hear a statement from him like when reince priebus left the white house. perhaps we will hear from the president. if he chooses to speak with the pool, but it is a day long predicted and a day that has come to pass for a significant change in the trump white house. >

own country. china has strong interest in pakistan. having a stable secure future pakistan is in a lot of our interests. they are a nuclear power, we have concerns about their weapons, the security of their weapons, there are many areas in which we believe we should be having very productive dialogue that serves both of our interests and regional interest as well. so this is -- again, this is not a situation where the u.s. is saying, look, it's justus and you. what our approach to bring these reasonable approaches is to bring all the other interests into this effort. much as we've done with north korea i think too often we try to disstill these issues. we have to encourage the circle of interest and bring others into the effort as well. that's what we'll be doing with pakistan as well. >> thank you, mr. secretary. thank you, everyone. >> rex tillerson speaking to reporters after the president's speech last night, trying to clarify exactly what he meant about his afghan policy, since the president gave away very little details about that, we did get a little more information from re

? china has no interest of inflating the region and it's very clear that russia one way or another assisted north kor n koreans and this is classic of kgb again. we have a problem, we can help you solve it but you have to pay us back. >> good to see you. please come in more. we enjoy having you around. coming up next, did donna brazile's new book throw a wrench in the virginia governors race days before the election? i'll speak live to democratic candidate and current lieutenant governor ralph northam. stay with us. nuclear war, accused of obstructing justice at the fbi and of violating the constitution by taking money from foreign governments and threatening to shut down news organizations that report the truth. if that isn't a case for impeaching and removing a dangerous president, then what has our government become? i'm tom steyer, and like you, i'm a citizen who knows it's up to us to do something. it's why i'm funding this effort to raise our voices together and demand that elected officials take a stand on impeachment. a republican congress once impeached a president for far

north korea. he has gotten china and russia to sign on. we have tremendous gains throughout iraq and syria. >> his vision is creating calm around the world and -- >> going into the weekend the president sent principles for dreamer's legislation up to capitol hill included in it was a provision for building the wall. the president had earlier said he would do the wall at a later time and with security measures and then do the wall later. did he change the goal posts? >> the president stating priorities for what responsible immigration reform should look like and that includes three big priorities what he promised congress he would lay out. that's what he did. i don't think we have been inconsistent on that front and certainly not unclear. the president has talked about his priorities repeatedly and in this case over the weekend laid them out in a very detailed fashion. >> is he insistent that the wall be part of any type of legislation? >> i'm not going to negotiate from the podium with you guys. that is something for the president and congress to work out. we are laying out our prior
