countries already, china, pakistan, russia, you have so many countries that have them. now, wouldn't you rather in a certain sense have japan have nuclear weapons when north korea has nuclear weapons? and they do have them. they absolutely do have them. >> and now he has the biscuit. donald trump has what every president has had before him during the nuclear age, a card with codes necessary for launching nuclear weapons. that card is supposed to be in his pocket at all times. i say supposed to be because this is donald trump. we now have a president who for the first time in history we cannot be sure is always actually in possession of the biscuit because he's donald trump. that card with the nuclear codes, the biscuit, is the most important thing that is passed from one president to another. there are reports that donald trump is still using his personal cell phone, which is unsecured and a wildly reckless way for a president to communicate. so donald trump's respect and understanding of the national security issues that are now his responsibility are not as clear as some might like the

. where was the g20 statement condemning north korea which would have put pressure on china and russia? other leaders expect to do. they were prepared to back it but it never came. he was an uneasty lonely awkward figure at the gathering you got the strong sense some of the leaders are frying to find the best which to worked around. what did we learn? we learn donald trump has pressed fast forward on the decline of the united states as a global leader. he managed to isolate his nation and confuse and alienate his allies and diminish america. he will seed that power to china and russia, two authoritiarian states that will forge a very different set of rules for the 21st century. some will cheer the decline of america but i think we will miss it when it's gone. >> msnbc foreign affairs cribber christopher diggy with join us next with the world's reaction to donald trump at the g20 and the investigation of russian interference in our election. ♪ ditching the cover-up for good? that's cool. showing off my arms? that's cool. being comfortable without a shirt? that's cool. getting t

grounded diplomacy that he has done with iran. similar to what president nixon did with china. it's just as profound, just as important for the united states. this is narrative on the republican side that it somehow shows weakness about president obama. you know i spent a lot of time in the mid east and in china. and what shows weakness there from their perspective about us, what showed real weakness was that the united states deployed hundreds of thousands of troops to iraq and afghanistan, spent over a trillion dollars and failed. that showed weakness. what obama has done with iran has actually shown real strength. and we have the chinese president in fact is going to go to iran in about a week or so to follow in president obama's footsteps to try to solidify this deal with iran and the world is actually taking -- following america's lead in p r pursuing this kind of diplomacy. this is strength through leadership. what we had before with trillions of dollars wasted, hundreds of thousands of troops sent, thousands of american troops killed let alone all the iraqis and afghans, that show

hacking in the presidential election. >> in early september, i saw president putin in china. i felt that the most effective way to ensure that that didn't happen was to talk to him directly. and tell him to cut it out, there were going to be some serious consequences if he didn't. our goal continues to be to send a clear message to russia or others not to do this to us, because we can do stuff to you. but it is also important for us to do that in a thoughtful, methodical way, some of it we do publicly. some of it we will do in a way that they know, but not everybody will. >> joining us now, the man who sn knows just what we can do, retired general brett williams who was operations director from 2012 to 2014. what are the options in a retaliation here? >> yeah, lawrence, you know, there are a lot of things we could do. what i would like to see us do is put together a number of thoughtful actions, both overt actions that would assure the american people and our friends and allies and other subtle actions that would not be visible that would be part of an overall leverage of the elemen

permanent normal trade relations with china are enormously important issues. >> patrick thornton, i wanted to show video of bernie sanders talking about nafta and where he's angrily ranting against it. we talked about nafta, you could not tell the difference. and in these midwest battleground states, nafta was a huge issue. and it seems like hillary clinton got saddled as the nafta candidate, even though she did not vote for it, had nothing to do with it. she was first lady when nafta went through, but it seems like bernie sanders found a way to talk to those voters about that kind of issue. >> yeah, he definitely tapped into that an a little bit differently, and i think there was also a failure on either side, really, the republican party has certainly been more pro-trade than the democrats, to actually defend trade, and i think that left, you know, clinton a little bit vulnerable. one of the things clinton didn't do a good job either is talking about a lot of these jobs and factories and jobs that have left ohio and other parts of the midwest haven't gone to mexico or china. they'

lot of reporters who worked in china, russia and cuba might have a pretty good advantage covering the trump administration. >> have you seen footnotes in a newspaper article before? i never have. what i'm interested in, it clearly indicates to me the times realizes they are dealing with something they have never dealt with before. they are working on this and having discussions how to handle this. do you think the media needs more of that or has a good grip how to handle the trump presidency? >> for the last ten years, i ha been writing presidents and how the press covers leaders who don't tell the truth. i think they have been scared to use the word "lies" and scared to say something was a false statement. often it is four or five paragraphs and you have to have somebody else say it is false so therefore it is a he said-she said situation. donald trump, this is one 0 his great accomplishments has pushed the major news organizations to think of putting in the headline, in the lead that he said something that was false, that was not true, that was inaccurate. i think that they need

the world, the soviet union, china, you could start the clock from the day we started selling coca cola and levi's in moscow and beijing, you could start the clock on how long that dictatorship would remain with that kind of strength. we saw the soviet union collapse. we have seen china liberalized dramatically over the years, opening up to more and more capitalism all the time. >> and yet with all that experience, somehow we believe that the exact opposite policy was going to work in cuba. i didn't understand it then, i don't understand it now. so let the place with american tourists and american business people, dangerous american ideas, which americans are not úrk shy to express, and this is the result. we've seen it happen again and again and again. but we haven't tried it in cuba. maybe we'll try it now. >> levi's, coca cola and american movies, that's how you bring down a dictatorship. >> something say we ought to receive something in exchange of this, that we ought to get some concession from the cuban government. we all need to remember this is a sanction or prohibition on

the normal allies plus china saying it is a good deal and the gop congressional leadership you have all of the candidates with their overthe top rhetoric and the government of israel netanyahu has said he is against the deal. i think it has become stark in that way. the president's, the calm tone of the president's defense and the humorous tone of his wonderful video valerie plame is part of is contrasted with the increasingly shrill tone that reached its peak with mike huckabee. >> can i jump in? let me add, important to what he was saying is that there is -- and this doesn't get much play but there is broad bipartisan con sen zuns us is among nuclear policy experts and i would not say anyone in the gop presidential field falls in to that category that agree this is a good deal. the nuclear experts say, yeah this is the best way to stop iran from getting a nuclear weapon bringing them back in to the international community and then we can begin to actually exert some leverage on their behavior. >> nuclear expert donald trump spoke on the technicals of this tonight on fox news sayin

countries like russia or china voting with them they wouldn't have the majority of that group. >> phyllis bennis your reaction to the deal. >> i think the technical points that professor bunn was just talking about is important but the broader, most important aspect is that this deal this agreement is a huge victory of diplomacy over war. it gives us clear evidence that diplomacy works. and that's really important in an era when we're hearing constantly there is no military solution, whether it's to isis or the crisis in syria, libya and iraq and yet the only strategy we see being opposed tends to be a military strategy. so this is a very important example of why the point that is made is true there is no military solution and there is in fact a negotiated diplomatic solution. so i think that point is by far the most important aspect. now, separate from that there's a host of other issues. not least is looking ahead to the future. this could be a moment of a beginning. i don't think we should be looking at this agreement as the end. this is just the beginning of what could be a whole new
