longer. perhaps china will put a heavy move on north korea and end this nonsense once and for all. it appears to be the first successful test of an icbm by the north and represents a significant step forward for the country's weapons program. the missile flew for about 39 minutes before crashing into the sea of japan within japan's exclusive economic zone. on state run media, north korea says that the nation is now a, quote, proud nuclear state. officials say they believe the test was of a two on stage missile with a range of at least 3500 miles and possibly more than 4100 meaning alaska is now within its range. >> admiral -- >> chilling. >> -- we've been knowing for some time that north korea was going to cause a serious threat. barack obama in his meeting with donald trump after donald trump got elected told him in the oval office you're worried about obamacare, obamacare is not going to keep you up at night, north korea is. well, here we are six months later. and now north korea apparently has the ability to deliver a nuclear weapon to alaska. what is our move? >> as we've talk

in asia? the great wall of china! it's incredible! [announcer] welcome to laura mckenzie's traveler. looks like a movie, doesn't it? hi. i'm laura mckenzie, and welcome to china, a country that's really fascinating to me because it's a mix of so many different time periods. for example, you can be on a bullet train going 250 miles an hour one day and the next in an ancient fishing village that hasn't changed much in a thousand years. you know, here in china, you don't just see places, you experience cultures, and i can't wait to show it to you. [laura narrating] china-- where a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. a collection of historical sites, colorful cities, and fascinating cultures. a country where fishing villages and rice paddies give way to skyscrapers and bullet trains. the landscape here is as diverse and beautiful as the people, from the mountains of xian to the harbor of hong kong. historically, china was ruled by a succession of dynasties-- families who passed power down through generations. but in the early part of the 20th century, civil war and ja

bursting. here you got china's bubble may be bursting a bit. but for the most part, aren't we in fairly solid state economically? smr well, joe, here's the good news. they called yesterday black monday, it was just crazy. today in europe they're calling it turn around tuesday because after the european stock market has bounced back and if you look at how s&p 500 futures are trading, it suggests we will see the dow and s&p 500 rebound a bit today. the bad news, though, is they are saying this is raising three big questions that investors should be looking at right now. firstly, what on earth is happening in china? because the reality is china has been powering a lot of global growth and people are very concerned not just about the economic slow down but the loss of control by the government of the markets. secondly, people also are saying, well, if you look at how the u.s. stockmarkets are moving recently, it's really got ahead of where the economy is. >> right. >> it's a big run up. >> so this is actually, even though a lot of us certainly aren't happy about, you know, our retirement sa

president continuing to play the china card here, working closely with beijing to put pressure on these guys. a lot of mystery whether this was a failed launch or american cyber capabilities had something to do with it. >> how about a third option? how about china? you know china is there. china already sent a message. we know you promise add launch here. it would be in your best interest for this launch to not be successful. >> that's certainly true, not be successful. in a funny way, even more worried about north korean missile advance than we are about nuclear warhead advance. we think they have got pretty much the weapons. worried about long-range missil missiles, accuracy. it could be the missile test failed. they have had failed missile tests before. what it shows is essentially the entire conversation changed. for a couple decades this has drifted. north korea advanced. what the administration has done is say we're not going to tolerate this. secretary of state says strategic patience is over. this has now come to a head. what we're basically telling china, if you don't wan

? china. china is the strategic beneficiary of this latest bout of american isolationism and protectionism. that's what historians are going to write. ind why everyone is focused on how inappropriate this was about american politics and kim jong-un. it won't help to deal with north korea. the real story will be the united states abdicating its position. we will pay an economic and strategic price literally for decades to come. >> making china great. >> i sense that you may have comments you would like to make on these matters. the president of the united states has been on this trip. almost every day he has managed to take some kind of shot at his predecessors or people involved in his current government in some cases, certainly in past governments. in this case i thought the most shocking thing about this on some level was to wake up over the weekend and have him take ong clapper, comey and brennan and essentially feel like, again, once again his instinct is to side with vladimir putin over his entire intelligence community. not just to do it but on foreign soil. speak a bit

decisions they didn't want to face, like china. >> as we talk about these two leaders and then mattis and till areson and kelly, the only problem is when you talk about the mags ality of the leaders and a will the of this conversation, i honestly did not know which leader you were talking about, l it was trump and the north korean leader. and that's the sort of the elephant in the room, that we are dealing with a president that some might argue is very hungry for war or is hungry to make unhinged decisionsand i'm not sure how much influence our foreign policy leaders have over that ultimately had a decision is made. you remember over a year ago general hayden staying on our show that it was quick, it's quick when it happens. so there's in part was. sfm a major nuclear tests. north korea has a strog mag nrngs south korea, i have told them their talk of frj to discuss north korea. thank you. the ups. sf sfrj. >> pretty extreme measures being talked about. and i'd just point out that the justice department went on the record after an investigation that cost money stay. complete lie. >> and w

sign if somebody's running for president of the united states doesn't know that china's had nuclear weapons for 50 years? >> a red flag for some voters, ç yes. >> could you imagine -- we're going to play a clip. herman cain actually and everybody's focused on the sexual harassment charges and the woman wants to talk -- and we're going to get to that in a second. but it seems to me, willie, is far more disturbing that a guy who wants to be commander in chief -- again, far more disturbing now from what we know. obviously if he sexually harassed two women, that's disturbing. but the fact that the guy wants to be commander in chief does not know -- and we know he'll backtrack today because once again he's showing his ignorance in foreign policy, and then he backtracks. he didn't know when he was on pbs that china had nuclear wes. weapons. could you imagine if sarah palin had made this sort of mistake? and why is it that people like sarah palin get absolutely destroyed -- as most democratic candidates would -- and yet herman cain makes these mistakes one day after another and keeps sail

thursday and friday with the president of china, he's facing a lot of tough decisions without a lot of leverage. these poll numbers give him less leverage rather than more. >> shane, what we're looking at, also, is a number of different foreign policy crises. the questions surrounding the white house itself, the questions that erupted yesterday over susan rice. do these poll numbers make a difference in the big picture? >> i think they do. these are all converging at one time. they put trump in a box and how he can respond to them. these are not new problems. the north korean nuclear issue is something he inherited from obama. the syrian issue, what did he do yesterday? he criticized the obama administration for its weak stance. these are in his court now. he's the chief foreign policy official. this is up to him. though his poll numbers are low, that doesn't change the necessity for him to respond forcefully. >> you can't overstate the importance of these numbers to the president himself. his stump speech for many, many months consisted him solely pulling a piece of paper out of his p

meeting of his presidency today with the leader of china. joe, what did you make of the president's statement from the rose garden? >> i think yesterday we talked about the president's unf unfortunate statement coming out of the white house talking about president obama. yesterday he righted himself, said what he needed to say, saying it's my problem now, it's on my shoulders. i think he heard the criticism attacking obama and how tone deaf it wasality the time. there are a lot of people, not only across the world, but a lot of people in america who i'm sure were heartened by the fact that this president wasn't going to say what every politician has said for the last five years, there's been a genocide in syria. that is, oh, it's just too hard and that's really -- we're sad and it's a shame, and we can't help them over there, we can't do anything. i think the president said that his mind was changed and he was going to seek action. it can only lead us to hope that he will work in other arab country ts and work with our european allies and figure out some way to bring relief to the s

discussing yesterday, may in fact be china. the whole guiding theme of this strategy is that we're saying to china this is so important to us, that north korean missiles are intolerant to the president, either you help us deal with it diplomatically or we're going to deal with it ourselves militarily. that depend on the chinese thinking we really mean it, we'll do it. >> and the president retweets a post saying "potus being unpredictable is a big asset." >> he shouldn't tweet that. >> and donald trump retweeted that. that's what i think you're saying, a madman, the unpredictability. >> if you tweet that you're unpredictab unpredictable, you're giving away the script. come on, trump. >> i was struck by the fear that this is less-than-rational behavior coming out of the ovals office, not the white house but the oval office. and general hayden's words in the "new yorker" magazine is that president trump has little interest in the world, their fear is that the accidental start of a war could easily occur. >> i'm hearing that same fear, mike. the president is just sort of racing toward
