though he repeatedly criticized china throughout his campaign. and matt, what all do you know about what mr. chi and mr. trump talked about? >> reporter: well, this was very much an introductory phone call along the lines of lots of the other phone calls president elect trump has had since his victory in the u.s. in terms of this call, we have received statements from both sides. chinese state media saying president chi has said it is proved that to cooperate is the only right choice. while president elect trump released a statement saying that he believes the two will have one of the strongest relationships for both countries moving forward. so, both sides saying the same thing. very much an introductory phone call. but as you said, china was one of the president elect 's favorite targets during the campaign. you can imagine while this was an introductory phone call, it may have felt awkward as well. >> and how different does china think its relationship is likely to be with the united states given the criticism that he directed at china throughout his campaign? do they assume that

that are made in china and other parts of the world that are not america, but we learned this week, in addition that trump's businesses have once again taken steps to hire foreign workers, trump's mar-a-lago club have filed documents to bring in additional foreign workers under the h 2 b visa program. is this a program for tproblem the president? >> i think all of us have this goal to buy american. we have to think this thing through. you have to go beneath the surface to get -- i get shirts at walmart, i get them for $7 sometimes. amazing goals, target the same way. the thing is, the money you save for ordinary working people is enormous amounts. it's somewhere between $800 to $1,000 a year the ordinary person saves. a lot of that stuff isn't made here, but those people are richer because they got their shirts a lot cheaper. it used to be a regular button up shirt might be 20, $25. and still might be in some places and at walmart is $7. that savings allows working class people to have a savings, to get a television set, buy gas for their truck, go on vacation. we can't get too caught

china, egypt, saudi arabia, the philippines. i know that's not your position, but that is his, this double standard. does that bother you at all? >> well, the one thing i would say to you is that they challenge the world to do more, to create stability in their own regions and the western hemisphere is the region we're in and i would say as international security interest to have human rights and democracy in our region because the absence of those two things leads to migratory pressure on the united states is created by instability in the western hemisphere so there is a national security interest in our region in creating stability and democracy and the other thing i would say is, if you look at the western hemisphere, 30 years ago, the majority of the countries were governed by dictatorships or strong men. today every country in the hemisphere has had at least one free and fair election in the last decade and a half or so except for one, the island of cuba, and so hopefully we're getting closer to the day when that happens there as well. >> let's turn to health care. one of your

america, in the middle of the night, no, not the united states. china maybe, not the united states. >> let's talk about guns, back in 1993 you proposed some of the strictest gun control laws in the country, including a statewide ban on some forms of semiautomatic rifles, a waiting period to buy handguns, prohibition against gun ownership for anyone under 21. to your positions on strict gun control fit in with a libertarian party platform that opposes "all laws at any level of government restricting, menlgsteres or monitoring firearms?" >> i'm a lifelong homeowner and finance owner and i don't think the proposals were out of the main stream at all. i distinguish between you know, hunting guns and guns that really don't seem to have any hunting purpose or potential purpose so that was the distinction i was drawing there, but that's an area where i think gary and i can find a common ground. i'm not worried about that issue. >> governor william weld, that u so much, goed luck to you and governor johnson. we look forward to seeing you out there on the campaign trail. >> thanks so much,

quote with president xi but you look at the fact we don't have an ambassador to china, we don't have an ambassador to japan, we don't have an ambassador to s south korea. we're doing all these things and the white house is fundamentally broken. we're not prepared to take on the challenges. whether or not it's the meeting or whether or not it's his staff or whatever, we are fundamentally unprepared on the world stage. >> there are people acting in those roles just not formal. >> can we at least give him credit for engaging with china especially when it comes to north korea? i know that there are so many things that people would prefer for him to do a little bit better about you that's why he got elected. he got elected because he wasn't the regular politician. they wanted somebody to feel -- >> i think as a country though, i understand not being a regular politician but when we're expanding our military footprint, we're on the verge of war in three different countries which with all due respect to president trump, president obama or anybody else, democrat or republican that fundamentally

. the key i think to this situation i think president trump understands this, is dealing with china. china now receives about 80% of the imports of north korea. they are virtually the only ally that north korea has, and what china has got to understand is that they have got to put incredible pressure, work with the entire asian community, in telling north korea that they have got to cease their efforts of develop intercontinental ballistic missiles and more nuclear weapons. i think china has the capability of doing that, so the partnership with china and other countries in that region is what we have got to focus on. >> as you note, president trump has seemed to follow that basic that china is the key, after he met with chinese president xi, an editorial in a semiofficial chinese newspaper warned that north korea, warned north korea specifically that it must rein in its nuclear ambitions or risk losing vital chinese trade. it wrote "chinese society will be willing to see the united nations security council adopt severe restrictive measures that have never been seen before such as re

quote when it comes to dealing with china. the ball is in their court. they're either going to go along with us and the rest of the international community and say, yes, we think that what north korea did was wrong or they're not. the president knows what all his options are. all the options are on the table, as always with president trump. and i think we'll handle it accordingly. ammunition comes in multiple forms. and i think we always have to look at what those options are ahead of what the actions are going to be by china. >> what if the chinese don't go along with that u.n. resolution? >> i think there will be a response. if they don't go along with that, the president has made it clear that he will start looking at trade relations with china. so, we have to see. i think that president trump, president xi meeting is extremely important right now and extremely timely. and i think it's going to be telling in the next few days what happens and what that relationship is going to look like. and you'll see how the u.s. responds accordingly. >> ambassador nikki haley, thank

. would you impose sanctions on china or india for not sanctioning iran? >> i would not call china and russia allies and our foreign policy as a nation is not subject to what china or russia wants to do or anybody wants to do. we have our own foreign policy that needs to be in the security interest of the united states. i would never enter this negotiation that iran would stop activities and stop capabilities and sponsoring terrorism. none of these conditions have been met. $150 billion is going to be delivered to the iranian regime that they will use a substantial portion of to help assad and help them carry out all sorts of terrorist activities this to a government that has the blood of over 1,000 service men in their hands because they were building the ieds less than a decade ago. >> let's go to another point of policy. tomorrow, the cuban embassy is going to open as part of president obama's efforts to normalizests. you called president obama's policy a victory for oppression. would they shut down the cuban embassy? >> i would end that until such time as they held the democrat
