of u.s. china policies. i have been talking to sources familiar with the president thinking who say that his transition team, president-elect trump, way before he was elected, did not talk to the possibility of having some contact with taiwan. really tried to send a strong signal to china. we heard him talk habit that on the campaign trail. he called china a manipulator. it is a foreign policy blender, it is something he stumbled into. part of the narrative is to try to push back against that sharp criticism. look, a lot of foreign experts say it is not about sending a strong signal to china. it is a complicated relationship. it is one that's in term of the the relations. what exactly of the fallout will be in the region in the wake of that phone call and president-elect trump continues to hold meetings here at trump tower. it is a busy day. his transition officials insisting he's going to take his time because it is a decision that's so significant and of course, that pick will have a lot to say about his policy towards china. >> kristen, i was going to say no one reputable that i

director whom you know well said this is real, this will bite, this is china's central bank basically agreeing to go with the system that the obama treasury used to get the international banking system known as the s.w.i.f.t. system against the rogue state. >> so it does work? >> basically means if i can paraphrase steve mnuchin at a briefing today, either decide if you're a nation or a bank, whether you want to trade in dollars and deal with the u.s. or deal with pyongyang's currency in pyongyang. you can't do both. so you want if deal in the world economy, which china does, which russia presumably does, you can't also deal with pyongyang. this would, if effectively monitored, actually cut off the flow of resources to north korea and cripple eventually its very expensive military system. that said, there's been a lot of cheating before. >> joe, all this military talk back and forth reaches this kind of fever dream crescendo and it's hard to walk back from that. so did you welcome the talk of diplomacy? did you welcome these new sanctions? >> it's a thin ray of hope, the pre

react well to 1 on one meetings with powerful men. he did with ping from china and decided not to label china a currency manipulator as he vowed to do during his whole campaign. he did the same thing with the general of nato and said nato's no longer obsolete after i was in office for two months and just because he had these personal meetings. and i think the kremlin understood trump's psychology to do this. so if they could get him in a room and jump start the talks. >> what is it like to watch this play out given your experience? >> where to begin. the idea that president putin can swing leaders, that was the way they talked about obama and putin in the early days and the record's pretty clore that president trump is influenced by these individual meetings. i wrote a piece for the post saying you hope it's learning but it often times looks like it's just ad-libbing and that meeting. they have a lot of hope on that. the problem is there's this big 800 pound guerilla that won't be dismissed from the room just because he fired fbi director comey and that is we need to know the fact
