tell me trump wants to use the relationship with russia to rethink how the u.s. engages with china and how it frames itself with the rest of the world including with europe. he sees russia has an ally potentially in not only rethinking world order but -- >> a lot of reporting over the weekend about how putin's tactics that we saw here over the summer in hacking the dnc, are used all over the world. >> right. >> they're used in europe. >> sure. >> so is trump being played for a fool or is he just willing to let this go to get the other things he wants? >> well, signal intelligence has been going on forever. the issue is disclosing it to wikileaks and places like that, using it for something other than intelligence gathering. i think one of the things that we're seeing here with john mccain and lindsey graham, two guys with serious military histories, and amy klobuchar, a democrat, is a reminder to americans who may have forgotten that this expansionist russia has been something we've been dealing with for a very, very long time and the two things that vladimir putin real he doesn't

presidency. he has china to worry about and north korea, and syria, and g20, and germany and angela merkel. what was he doing thinking about john podesta, someone i imagine most americans are not thinking about? >> well, i think two scenarios, one of them not so subtle. he knows he will have to raise this russian hacking issue, it's uncomfortable. so he goes ahead and attacks the primary victim of the russian hacking, which was john podesta, you combine them with the intelligence agency and these are all things that would be quite pleasing to putin. the other thing is he just may have had a bizarre dream about podesta and randomly decided to tweet it out. you choose. >> i have to say for people watching the story you're really right to be confused about this. john podesta never worked for the dnc. he had nothing to do with their server. the cia was not looking for it. what do you make of the fact that there was just nothing true about the tweet? >> yeah, the president seems to have confused two different elements of the story. there were two big hacks here, one of the democratic nat

wish we would have a little more help with respect to north korea from china, but that doesn't seem to be working out. the year of strategic patience with the north korean regime has failed. as far as north korea is concerned, i don't know. we'll see what happens. i don't like to talk about what i have planned. we'll handle north korea. we're going to be able to handle north korea. it will be handled. we handle everything. >> then there is this. perhaps the most sobering quote of the evening came during an interview with a nuclear expert, the head of a global security foundation. he was interviewed on "the rachel maddow program" earlier tonight. >> the seriousness of this situation cannot be overestimated. not because they could hit us out of the blue that could take out los angeles or seattle. you have two insecure, inexperienced, impulsive leaders in control of a vast amount of destructive force, squaring off in the most heavily militarized area on earth. what is trump going to do now? >> that got our attention for good reason, and with that, let's bring in tonight's starting pane
