north korea will be sharply sanctioned. but what was significant about yesterday, he also said china's central bank ordered its branches not to do business with north korea. so the chinese element there could be a significant shift. now, this morning we have an escalating war of words, president trump tweeting this, kim jong-un of north korea who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people will be tested like never before. that volley came after one by north korea's leader, kim jong-un, late last night, steph, a rather statement by the north korean leader in which he said president trump is unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country and he's surely a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire rather than a politician. i will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged u.s. dotard with fire. a lot of folks went online and looked up the definition of dotard. dave murphy, our great producer looked it up. this is from dictionary.com. a person, especially an old person exhibiting a decline in mental faculties, a weak mental state or fool

an insurance firm in china once that became public, the firm backed out and said there is this conflict and we don't want to get involved. we do have some reporting that some talks were under way with saudi arabia. so, maybe, maybe that's where this goes which gets incredibly naughty. you have an ongoing blockade right now reshaping the politics and the history of the middle east. right now as qatar can't get supplies from the areas where it's blockadede it's turning to turkey and it's resetting the political, why is it happening? >> what can be done, ryan. jared kushner can make the argument, i don't have ties with my family business any more. my brother-in-law is running it or and you seen the trump son smile and say we can have no conflicts of interest. >> rex tillerson could be given authority to actually try to solve this diplomatic crisis rather than having kushner intervene. you could have him recuse himself. >> you could have him recuse himself. we'll see if that happens. ryan, great reporting. >>> i'm stephanie ruhle and i'll see you again at 11:00 a.m. with my friend

korea is actually not a bad one. sort of a good cop, bad cop situation, trying to pressure china to leverage north korea, that's not a bad approach. but he's completely under cutting the secretary of state. the good cop, so nothing left but the bad cop. so at the end of all that it makes the chance of war much more likely. and one of the most disturbing things that senator corker said, i'm going to get to that, he was aware of the personal cases where the president's behavior has under cut the prospects of talks with north korea. that would be tragic. second thing is, look, i've been in the room when the president legislative agenda is at stake. a guy like bob corker is going to do the right thing, he's going to do what he thinks is right for the people of the united states of america. but sometimes you face judgment calls. sometimes it's a close call. and it's kind of 5050. and you could go either way on the merits. that's when the president looks us in the eye and appeals tour personal loyalty. your need to support him as president, to do what he thinks is right for the country. a

the approval of china and russia. symbolically, that's a big deal, but does it actually hold any weight when you think about north korea and who runs that country? >> well, stephanie, i think it's important to separate out the difference between the symbolic effect of these sanctions and the practical effect. the symbolic effect is actually quite significant. we have china negotiating the terms of these sanctions right alongside the united states. and that sends a powerful message to north korea, which does 90% of its economic activity with china. and beyond that, china acts as a sort of diplomatic and security protector for north korea. it's really their buffer to the world, the filter through which north korean money and any kind of diplomatic access typically runs. and for china to be really, you know, shaking its finger at north korea here and saying not only are you doing something wrong by violating u.n. resolutions, the ballistic missile tests and the nuclear tests, but we're going to allow fairly broad economic punishment against you for it. that is significant, but now t

weekend, general, does that in any way to you indicate that china's influence and that president xi's hand is at work here? >> yeah. no doubt. so i think the diplomatic engagement has been pretty adept on the part of the administration, but i'd also say, again, that, you know, to understand the north koreans you have to understand this is a criminal oligarchy, so this young, overweight, untried, fearful of his generals, kim jong-un, wants to survive intact with his elites still getting, you know, good brandy and tv sets. so there's some room to believe that negotiations, if we give him a way out, to save face, might well reduce the threat of the situation. but chris, again, they're not giving up their nuclear weapons, period. that's not going to happen. the question is, can we get them more in line with the international community and less of an immediate threat to build icbms that can strike the u.s.? that's where they're headed right now. >> and part of that, robert, obviously, is tied into it all as we were saying is the dependence on china and during the campaign, president trump
