you realize for example on the economic side of things china is the number one importer of north korean coal, i think to see enemy curtail some of that has a real economic impact on the region. there is a lot of economic and political pressure points that i think china can utilize. we've been very encouraged with the direction they're going. >> that's a significant part of this strategy of course. so on one hand you have the tough talk from the president from sean spicer, from the vice president, standing along the dmsz. there is increasing relis on china they looked at whamd over the weekend, the possibility there was some sort ofuclear test. this there wasn't. they constantly talk about the relationship the president built with xi and many hours of conversations when he was at mar-a-lago and then subsequent conversations by phone. so tough talk prepared to do anything, not taking anything off the table. but also looking to china to be a big player in this, kersten. >> that's for sure case case kris you and have been talking about this throughout the day. the administration is t

the president of china last night and cast it as a productive conversation, he said as they deal with menacing north korea. the first time we heard him describe north korea as a menace. he did that because of recent provocations by north korea. it launched another nuclear test. there are concerns it could, in fact, launch a sixth nuclear test. so president trump aiming to take a tough tone with china to get china to ramp up the pressure on north korea. so far, brian, there haven't been any tangible results as it relates to that. we know the two leaders also met last week in mar-a-lago. clearly the president didn't feel as though they were on the same page when it came to north kor korea. what we saw in the wake of the meeting last week was a host ofg if china doesn't act, the united states is prepared to act alone. we pressed sean spicer, press secretary, on what specifically does that mean? does that mean military action, does that mean sanctions? so far he hasn't filled in those blanks. those are among the questions that president trump will be asked today. i would anticipate. as it

president trump. we saw it on china, we saw it on nato. before the last 24 hours, of course, we saw syria last week, some changes in direction here, it seems, from this new administration. white house press secretary sean spicer asked today what it all means. >> what should the american people make of these shifts and are there any policy areas that are nonnegotiable? >> well, i think, you know, respectfully, i think you can look at what you're referring to as a shift in a lot of ways and if you look at what's happened, it's those entities or individuals in some cases are issues evolving toward the president's position. >> so spicer trying to downplay the idea of shifts here, but we have really seen in terms of the policy trump is pursuing some major wholesale reverses from some of the most memorable statements and promises that he made back on the campaign trail. in many cases, these were responses that drew criticism from establishment republicans during the campaign. they were very nervous about the direction trump was talking about going as a candidate. it was candidate trump wh

the more important thing is china's role in the south china sea and the fill pee philippines trying to stop china from gaining influence there. my understanding is trump is much more concerned about that part of things. the control of the south china sea, than he necessarily is about what's going on with north korea. that being said, north korea is the sexier subject. that's probably one reason the administration is trying to bring that into the conversation. >> so you're getting here in the united states you're getting all sorts of blow-back to the idea of trump meeting with and inviting duterte over to the white house. here's the twist maybe people didn't necessarily expect, though, duterte's response so far has not exactly been warm and enthusiastic. he says me might be too busy to even come. can you -- is there a reason that you can think of, i mean, usually we're used to foreign leaders, especially in a situation like his, being honored by the legitimacy that a visit to the white house sort of bestows on them. here he is sort of saying, eh, i'm not sure i'm going to do it. >> h

officials from the united states. >> the dustup over the one china policy happened during the transition. >> a lot of things happened during the transition. that was something where president obama was retaliating. one president at a time as everyone says. for what? for the allegations by the u.s. intelligence agencies that russia was interfering in the u.s. campaign. so, again, if folks sometimes get lost on all the legal words, this was a significant recusal of an attorney general saying, i'm going to step out of the campaign investigation if there is one because i might be compromised, and it is not, to my plain reading of the words, a statement about any other inquiries that might exist about anything after election day. >> chris matthews remains with us from washington. chris, a day is a year in this new time line of this administration. what do you make of the "times" piece? >> the news is marching. what i think voters don't like, right, left and center, is rolling disclosure. that is the phenomenon where politicians admit to things once they're exposed but never a day b

countries in europe or china or russia. from their perspective, iran will do what it's supposed to do. it's difficult to undo something that is working than undo something that is not working. when you are not responsible for something, it's easy to call it a terrible deal. when you are responsible for it, preventing iran from getting a nuclear weapon, you are more likely to look at the facts. that is going to be true in other circumstances. for example, the paris agreement. there is talk about the possibility of undoing this agreement. you have 200 countries that signed up for this thing. the good news is that what we have been able to show over the last five, six, eight years is that it's possible to grow the economy really fast and possible to bring down carbon emissions as well. it's not just a bunch of rules we set up. you have got utilities that are pulting in solar panels and creating jobs and the big three who have seen record sales and are overachieving on the fuel efficiency standards we set. turns out people like not having to fill up as often and save money at the pump. even if

with people who are not your allies. with china, with russia, with others who might not be in the ally orbit, but factor in the world. if you can make alliances in certain areas, even if it's not in every area, there should be some commerce and some ability to have a dialogue and an ability to establish what the parameters of a relationship are. i think we should be talking to china, we should be talking to now, has that gone over the line to be too much or too many tentacles throughout? i don't know. but i do think it would be wrong for us to shut down any diplomatic communication with countries that are not necessarily our alley, but with whom we have certain relationships that can be productive. and i think the fact that john huntsman is going to be our ambassador to russia is a very sound choice because he has experience as an ambassador in china. and he had very good ratings. he's well regarded. and he really knows the world. so i think that president trump should be given a lot of credit along with rex tillerson, our secretary of state, for appointing someone like john huntsman t

about how trump is going to conduct diplomacy. russia, china are places where you can see him have confrontations with republicans in his own party on questions like this. i think we are entering a new era in diplomatic communication. >> in these final few weeks, part of this is that president obama on his way out is trying to get on the record with certain things whether it was the action with israel in the united nations and the response to russia over the election hacking and that's something trump has shown no appetite for and obama wants to deal with this before he leaves office. >> it sets up lines where if trump makes different decisions, the headline is going to be trump departs from previous u.s. policy and where the obama administration was. that's if they do follow-through and put public sanctions and put public punishment for the hacking. if donald trump tries to undo it, it is more difficult. because he has lindsey graham and john mccain republicans saying you shouldn't be doing that. >> kacie hunt, thanks for stopping by. >> with world events and deaths of iconic star
