going to great lengths if he feels slighted in trade disputes. the confirmations in jeopardy. one key republican says he won't get behind them. the pentagon acknowledging a second attack on soldiers in niger last year after the deadly ambush by isis fighters. this is just now coming to light. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm bigeldave briggs. we will discuss the national walkout in a moment. what a strong showing of kids across the country. we start with some eye popping comments. donald trump on trade suggesting how far he is willing to go in talks with american allies. two major admissions and at a private fund-raiser in st. louis. >> the president said he made up facts with canadian prime minister justin trudeau.
2:02 am
retelling a stoiry he told before. he said the u.s. has a trade deficit with canada. he admitted he did not know if that is the case. >> for the record, the united states has a trade surplus with canada. the president launched an attack on close american allies, including south korea. including that country ripping off the u.s. for decades. the president appeared to threaten pulling american troops stationed in south korea if seoul does not make concessions on trade that he wants. >> trump said we lose money on trade. we lose money on the military. we have right now 32,000 soldiers on the border with north and south korea. let's see what happens. for more on that story. let's bring in david mckenzie live in seoul. this is a president who, you know, was elected to rock the boat. in terms of the korean peninsula he is doing that. >> reporter: that is right, christine.
2:03 am
he said from the moment he was brought into office he wanted to get hard on south korea when it comes to trade. get tough on the issues. to include the many u.s. troops at the demilitarized zone just 38 miles to the north of me is a controversial move even in private. president trump is now looking toward the high stakes meeting with kim jong un, the leader of north korea. and to throw trade and troops in the mix may complicate the mix with south korea. the foreign minister on the way to d.c. to have meetings with the acting secretary of state because rex tillerson was fired and meetings with ivanka trump. the longer there is awa wait on word, the more nervous the south
2:04 am
koreans will get. there are meetings in sweden and they hold interests at heart with north korea. a lot of behind the scenes momentum. the comments potentially won't be seen as useful in the korean peninsula right now. >> david, thank you so much. >> joining us here is the senior correspondent for bustle.com. >> glad to be heere. >> this is the fear when the president talked about the direct meeting with kim jong un. shooting from the hip and pulling troops from the korean peninsula. that brings feel to people in the ridegion. how important is this issue? >> it is very important to the south koreans and u.s. and the military and families. as you noted, it comes at an
2:05 am
intense time with the u.s., south korea and north korea. while these meetings are planned and negotiations as to what pre-conditions will agree to and all of that is hashed out, this is a powerful remark. on the heels of a few of the remarks the president put out. >> kim jong un wants a drawdown. the president is dangling something beneficial. >> everything they want. >> you watch the president on the diplomatic front is interesting. as justin trudeau and his story where the president walks in and says we have a trade deficit with canada. we don't. we don't. it makes it difficult to figure out how the president is negotiating and the deals he is making when the basic facts are not right. >> christine, it mays it difficult for reporters and difficult for his staff. it makes it difficult for our allies meeting with the
2:06 am
president. he said exemptions can be offered on steel and aluminum tariffs. we see the meeting with trudeau how the meetings go. the president's view is america first. what that means is he has a view and he says allies are here to serve the united states. you see him pulling away and saying this is not in the american trinterest. this is something he has been doing for the last 14 months. >> if the president is getting a better deal on nafta, he will look good in the end. if there is no trade war. >> exactly. if there is no trade war. that is a big if. >> that's the carrot. this is something i'm looking at with the appointment on larry kudlow. he agrees these can be a tool. negotiating better deals in the interest of the united states. they have different opinions

2:08 am
walkout we saw across the country. one month after the shooting at parkland at stoneman douglas high school. it was incredible to see the students take action around the world as we reported. the question being how do they turn this into action? they have the march for our lives on march 24th in d.c. how do they turn this into policy? congress member be care about come l dollars and cents and votes. >> so many wanted to tell me about walking through the streets. the signs they were holding and shirts they were wearing and how pedestrians stopped and took photos and cheered them on. i saw this all. the question is what happens next. they point to the march on march 24th. they are getting buss to bri bu ohio. you see the enthusiasm. you see the enthusiasm around the efforts closer to home. another walkout on april 20th.
