3:02 am
trump is eager to attend the g-7. the administration late last night the president was cutting his trip short, not attending a number of sessions on climate change and the environment. today the president is expected to hold bilateral meetings with his french and canadian counterparts, justin trudeau and emmanuel macron. he will be aggressive in defending his america first policies, some which the united states's closest allies call insulting and offensive. president trump cutting his time at the g-7 sum pheutd shomit am war of words with two closest allies. one source telling cnn as late as thursday afternoon, president trump was questioning why to even attend the summit at all, asking aides what the point would be after president macron sent this pointed message, quote, the american president may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing awe
3:03 am
six-country agreement if need be. the president's advisers told him canceling the trip entirely would look like he was backing away from a fight that he started. one source says mr. trump told aides he will enter the talks swinging. then firing off a number of tweets, please tell president trudeau and president macron they are charging massive tear and i was create nonmop tear barriers before noting, look forward to seeing them tomorrow. >> we're talking everything through. there may be disagreements. i regard this as much like a family quarrel. i'm always the optimist. i believe it can be worked out. >> reporter: president trump calling trudeau indignant after he vowed to confront mr. trump over tariffs. >> translator: i think his actions are hurting his own citizens. it is american jobs which will be lost because of the actions of the united states and its
3:04 am
administration. >> reporter: the harsh rhetoric in stark contrast of the optimism president trump is expressing ahead of the summit with kim jong-un. >> i think i'm very well prepared. i don't think i have to prepare very much. it's about attitude, willingness to get things done. >> reporter: but president trump also reiterating that he is willing to walk away from negotiations. >> if they don't denuclearize, that will not be acceptable. we cannot take sanctions off. >> maximum pressure is absolutely in effect. we don't use the term anymore because we're going into a friendly negotiation. you hear me saying we're going to use maximum pressure, you'll know the negotiation did not do well, frankly. >> reporter: the president suggesting that the summit could be extended and that he would not hesitate to invite kim to the white house if talks go well. >> i think it will be well received. i think he would look at it very favorably. so i think that could happen.
3:05 am
>> reporter: and president trump heads directly to singapore tomorrow before his summit with kim jong-un. some of the brightest diplomatic fireworks may happen on friendly territory here in singapore for the g-7. >> we'll be watching that arrival very, very carefully to see, you know, how warm -- >> the body language. >>ed body language. >> we are very into the body language. will there be another manshake? >> may be they can separate their physical from their emotional relationship. maybe they can. some people can. here to discuss is david sanger. he's national security correspondent for the "new york times" and reporter and editor at large chris cillizza. >> and body language expert. >> noted. >> the president going to quebec, going to the g-7 for a much shorter time. well, at least a little bit of a shorter time than previously anticipated. obviously deeply uncomfortable
3:06 am
about what may happen in the next 24 hours. >> you know, i've covered g-7 summits now for a few decades. i've never seen a leader leave early with no clear outside reason. i've been to some where a terrorist incident or something caused people to leave. but in this particular case, it's clear that the president, first of all, didn't want to go. secondly, doesn't want to get into this argument. and thirdly, is incredibly angry at two leaders with whom he thought he was building up a good relationship, trudeau and macron. and he's had pretty harsh conversations with the two of them. they were sort of the last two who thought that they could actually go deep with it. he's also leaving before any of the discussions on environment, any of these issues central to what the other six members of
3:07 am
the g-7 had in mind. so imagine what's happened here, which is basically the president is saying i'm going to come in to lecture you, and then i'm going to leave. >> chris cillizza, the fight is already under way. we don't have to wait until we read the body language. it's already happening and playing out on twitter. here's what the president said yesterday at 7:44 p.m. about prime minister trudeau. prime minister trudeau is being so indignant bringing up the relationship that the u.s. and canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things. but he doesn't bring up that they are killing our agriculture. that was preceded before that macron had tweeted this. the american president may not mind being isolated but neither do we mind signing a six-country agreement if need be because they represent values, an economic market which has the
3:08 am
weight of history behind it and which is now a true international force. well, this will be interesting. >> yeah. i mean, donald trump is in i think pretty simple to understand if you don't overthink it. which is he likes people who say and do things he likes and he doesn't like people who say and do things he doesn't like. i just don't think it is much more complicated than that. this temper i'm going to take my ball and go home because he thought trudeau and macron were two people who were going to do what he wanted, right? he knows angela merkel in germany, for example, they never had the warmest relationship. he has low expectations there. but these two, they would nice visits at the white house. everything went perfectly fine. remember, he was at bastille day with macron.
3:09 am
so i think it's a combination of them not doing what he wants and him expecting that they would do what he wants. i don't think it's more than that. he's incredibly transactional and it is based on how people treat him personally. >> the stunning discrepancy between what we saw with macron and the president earlier, we can put that up so you can see the pictures. these men have a fond close relationship. there was hugging, kissing, dandruff picking. both went out of their way to show, literally show us how close they are. enough david sanger, emmanuel macron is talking about subtraction. international diplomatic subtraction. make the g-7 basically the g 6 plus one. that is a major major
3:10 am
development with its closest allies. >> they always had the united states at the center of it as the world's largest economy. then it was essentially the countries trying to come around it around one economic policy and in common political efforts. you will remember that after the fall of the berlin wall, it was then ex paneled for a while to the g-8. and it was going to bring in russia as a full partner. well, obviously that fell apart. and now you have the sense of america first being america alone. when you see a statement like macron's saying we're heavily happy to have a statement come out from the g-6 who share common values, the implication being the united states does not share those values. and that gets a little bit beyond a family breach.
3:11 am
>> all right. chris, let's talk about what president trump does seem to be quite optimistic about, and that is the summit with kim jong up. he was asked how one prepares for a historic summit like this. and here's what the president had to say about his preparation. >> i think i'm very well prepared. i don't think i have to prepare very much. it's about attitude. it's about willingness to get things done. but i think i've been praeurepa for the summit for a long time, as has the other time. i think they have been preparing for ah long time also. this isn't a question of preparation. it's a question of whether people want it to happen, and we will know that very quickly. >> this reminds me of when john and i were on the quiz show. john prepared by studying history, presidential history, american history. i decided to go big on perm personality. >> i did good on the first one
3:12 am
and then john cleaned up after that. >> john is always doing his book learning, alisyn. donald trump has made a lifetime out of street smarts over book smarts. i would say if you needed three words to describe him it's about attitude is three pretty good ones. he has built a brand sort of in the marketplace and now in the political marketplace. eggheads and nerds are the ones who study policy briefings. he goes by his gut, his instinc instincts, and that has gotten him president. i do think it is a different thing when we are talking about nuclear weapons in the korean peninsula and a historic meeting. no american president has ever sat down with a north korean leader. but it's not surprising. i think it's odd but not surprising. this is who this man is.
3:13 am
he has utder confidence in his ability to do anything and everything, even when the facts suggest he might not should have that confidence. >> david sanger, we have a short time left, but tell me where the line is now on what may be the crucial thing which is certifiable, verifiable denuclearization. >> it's a great question. because when we are out in singapore next week, john, this is really the only test. and i think what's going to happen in the summit, you have two leaders coming in who very much want the summit to be a success. so they will talk about peace, peace agreements, and they will leave the details of what irreversible denuclearization, verifiable denuclearization is all about to mike pompeo and other negotiators. and the risk here is that is always where agreements with the north koreans fall apart. >> all right. david sanger, chris cillizza,
3:14 am
thank you very much. >> i have two words, football scholarship. >> that's what you got? you got to that school you call harvard. a staffer arrested in a leak investigation as justice departments seize e-mail and phone records belonging to a "new york times" reporter. what are all of the implications here? this is awe big story. we have a lot more on it next. i'm very proud of the fact
3:15 am
that i served. i was a c130 mechanic in the corps, so i'm not happy unless my hands are dirty. between running a business and four kids, we're busy. auto insurance, homeowner's insurance, life insurance policies. knowing that usaa will always have my back... that's just one less thing you have to worry about. i couldn't imagine going anywhere else. they're like a friend of the family. we are the cochran family, and we'll be usaa members for life. save by bundling usaa home and auto insurance. get a quote today. this is the story of green mountain coffee roasters dark magic told in the time it takes to brew your cup. first, we head to vermont. and go to our coffee shop. and meet dave. hey. why is dark magic so spell-bindingly good, he asks? let me show you. let's go. so we climb. hike. see a bear. woah. reach the top. dave says dark magic is a bold blend of coffee
3:16 am
with rich flavors of uganda, sumatra, colombia and other parts of south america. like these mountains, each amazing on their own. but together? magical. all, for a smoother tasting cup of coffee. green mountain coffee roasters packed with goodness.
3:17 am
3:18 am
a long time senate intel committee staffer haob arrest e arrested for lying to fbi agents. it is james wolf and details his contact with three reporters, including a "new york times" reporter that he acknowledges having a personal relationship with. they have seized years worth of her e-mail and phone records during this investigation. let's talk about this. chris cillizza is still with us. and brian karem. brian, what do you make of this story? >> well, it's dangerous. it's a continuing policy from the obama administration and from others. the on 'bama administration they have jail whistleblowers. on this he is definitely in agreement with. it's scary. as you know, i spent time in
3:19 am
jail. >> i remember. >> it's not pleasant, and it's very frightening and very chilling for the first amendment. so the president continued his march towards his kingliness and demanding information from reporters. in this case it's particularly onerous because they went behind someone's back and seized things without even a subpoena. alisyn, that's scary when it comes to what you're allowed to do and what you shouldn't be doing as a member of the government. and it is prior restraint and it is also very chilling for anyone who wants to be a reporter in this country. it's frightening. i can't think of enough words to describe how doggone bad it is.
3:20 am
ali is a reporter for the "new york times" now. she was at buzzfeed before, chris, when these were published. the statement from the attorney it is always disconcerting when records are obtained through a grand jury or other legal process. whether it was really necessary will determine on the nature of the investigation and the scope of any charges. he is on a crew sawed against leaks of all kind. >> i would say just wait, john. >> i love you, chris. >> my guess is we will hear from him in the very near future. the obama administration
3:21 am
prosecuted whistle-blowers very aggressively. but donald trump, he has put emphasis on the leaks of what he believes to be classified information in the james comey case, it's not clear the information was classified. but what he would call classified information, remember john kelly was brought in at least at some level as chief of staff. his main thing that he talked about coming in was i'm going to limit leaks. these leaks are damaging. in many cases they are illegal. this is the natural extension of that policy. >> one of the things, john, we should point out, is the prosecutor, he says those are very common words used by prosecutors when they want to go after reporters. i wouldn't even look at that language and take it seriously because the simple fact of the matter is the government believes they can get information that they want from us whenever they want it. and of course that's not true or should not be true. and while you may have a leak or
3:22 am
a whistle-blower in the government, and by the way there is such thing as a whistle-blower's act to protect those people, going after reporters sends a chilling message. this administration has already declared it's the enemy of the people and fake news, and they would like to continue that. >> i'm glad we have you here to lay this case out so clearly. >> obviously we will follow this as we get more information. we want to move on to a built of a stir rudy guiliani caused yesterday, chris, with his words in israel where he was saying, you know, really denigrating things about stormy daniels and why she wouldn't be credible because of her line of work. he also during that said basically look at donald trump's three wives and how wonderful they are. why would you ever believe someone who claims to have had an affair with him. he said this about the first lady. this is what rudy guiliani, the president's lawyer said. she believes in her husband. she knows it's not true.
3:23 am
i don't even think there is a slight suspicion that it is true. then the first lady's office put out this interesting response to that. i don't believe mrs. trump has ever discussed her thoughts on anything with mr. giuliani. this is notable and interesting on many levels, chris. why would she feel the need to issue a statement when all rudy guiliani says she believes her husband. why not just leave it at that? >> i would point -- some people are saying it's just a factual statement. she hasn't talked to rudy guiliani. i would say she has never talked to him about anything is the tell there. in terms of what that -- that was meant to be a shot across. there's no two ways about it. rudy guiliani is freelancing all over the place. whether it's about melania trump, his comments about north korea and kim jong uskwropbjong
3:24 am
daniels. he is freelancing. it suggests to me at least in the near term, the president of the united states supports what he is doing. >> in this case, i think the key here is that the first lady's office chose to put out a statement. they might as well have put the flame emoji on it. i mean, this was absolutely to say, rudy, you back off here. you are not talking for me. >> yeah. i think the bottom line, chris makes the point, the bottom line factor, rudy guiliani is the court jester. and the president and him may have talked about what to say. and i guarantee you rudy guiliani and the president have -- his freelancing is an appearance. they may not have talked to the first lady. but i giuliani and the president are talking. but a a court jester is useful, look over here, don't look over here. while rudy guiliani is ranting and raving at betsy devos tearing down the department of
3:25 am
education. you have scott pruitt. >> let's talk about scott pruitt. chris cillizza. >> it is like a character out of quentin tarantino movie. >> i came in early for this story. "washington post" reporting scott pruitt, epa administrator, member of the president's cabinet, asked his security council to go find a certain kind of lotion that he likes. >> did you say lotion? >> lotion. >> when does dry skin become a security risk? is it dry skinned, cracked skin, chafed skin? >> it is amazing to me he still has a job not based on anything other than even the most -- >> he's doing what the president wants him to do. >> he should be gone. right. the reason is he continues to do -- he continues to execute on donald trump's vision of what
3:26 am
the epa should do and should not do. >> that's why he's there. >> it is him trying to obtain a chick-fil-a franchise is not the biggest -- while in office -- is not the biggest story of the week. >> no. and while we're looking at that. again, while we're looking at blue smoke and mirrors, g-7 is going on, mueller's investigation is going on, he's sitting down with north korea, we're laughing and looking at the side show. and that's okay with donald trump. that's what he wants us to do. he does not want us to look at the facts and look at the issues. he'd rather have us talking about chick-fil-a and, you know, the lotion in the basket. but the reason why he remains there, pruitt is there to destroy the epa. he's doing it. there are people in the epa i've known for years who are disgusted and scared as to what's happening. the same with rick perry. the same with mulvaney, destroying everything for consumer protection.
3:27 am
the trump administration has an agenda, and it's to tear down protections. it is to destroy regulations, it's to tear down the federal government and the people he's assigned to do it are doing it. we're laughing and looking at the side show while they're continuing on their agenda. that hasn't changed. there is a bit of madness but a bit of brilliance in how you do that. >> while we're laughing, just to be clear, the lotion is one part of this ridiculously long list. >> i think we can do both. >> you can laugh and look. >> we can laugh and look. i haven't seen demands like this since mariah carey's greenroom. it is similar to the kind of water he wants, the lunch he wants, where he wants to eat, the thread count, the kind of mattress. i was thinking what is this reminding me of? oh, yes, the leaked reports of mariah carey's greenroom. >> you rarely see a politician
3:28 am
who has -- remember, they've been there for 16 months. that is not four years worth. that is 16 months. %-p member so overtly use the power of his office for sort of potentially personal gain and then just violate the boundaries of what is professional to ask your staff where the government pays your salary. and the lotion ask, which is clearly not professional. >> he is merely the most corrupt individual to ever be in government office. and i've been covering government for 30 some odd years. i cannot see anything more loathesome than pruitt. >> he has soft skin. brian, chris, thank you for being with us. appreciate it. >> sure. >> on this show, we do both. we look at the policy and the side show, the lotion side show. >> i think i went to that once in vegas. heading to hostile territory,

disarray" ambassador richard haass. your twitter game is strong. the g-7 summit is that prince, the famous recording artist, might have called this the group formerly known as 7. the president has done something pretty major here. >> i think this was the straw that broke the camel's back. it didn't happen. it began with this speech, america first, getting out of the paris climate pact, out of the iran nuclear deal. now the tariffs done in the name of national security imposed on allies, i think that's what did it. >> hold on a second. i'm trying to find the president's tweet. when the president spells it out in terms of what's being done wrong to the u.s., it's a compelling case. he said things like canada never mentions the fact that they charge 300% on dairy. they hurt our farmers, kill our agricultural.
3:34 am
he spells out all the in dignities they have done in terms of tariffs. >> there are legitimate trade disputes. you don't resolve them unilaterally, with tariffs, using a national security argument. so, again, we have something called nafta. if you have issues with canada, that's the framer. he does have legitimate beeves on trade. but there is a way to go about it and not treating people as enemies. >> you call it the straw that broke the camel's back. macron has done back flips to reach out to the president the last 24 hours. >> that honeymoon is terminating. >> they may not be holding hands. but they said i'm fine if it's just six. >> the consequences in the near term are mostly economic.

the longer term effect is more interesting. you see the psychological change in europe. this is the beginning of a different world. this suspect the end of the post world war ii world. they can wake up and assume they would be more than not in league with the united states. mr. trump represents a very different united states. not just in foreign policy. but look at what is going on domestically. i wouldn't underestimate this. >> he will be skipping the environment change and environment portion of the event.

thing the president said about iran yesterday. he basically said that the united states pulling out of the iran nuclear deal has had an immediate impact in the u.s. favor in terms of forcing iran to do different things. listen to exactly what he said. >> iran is not the same country that it was a few months ago. they're a much, much different group of leaders. and i hope at some point they'll come to us and we'll sit down sand make a deal good for us an good for them and good for everybody, and it will be great for everyone. >> it's the same group of leaders. >> i don't see it. they are talking about reopening their nuclear program in ways that had been shut. no change in the political aderip it might make it more difficult

are you still angry that the president burned the white house down. >> i think the president was probably joking. everyone knows it was the russians who burned the white house. >> he has the win there. he knows they didn't. but does the president know that canada did not burn down the white house in the war of 1812? the canadian prime minister justin trudeau, the president told the prime minister, didn't you guys burn down the white house? joining me of "don't know much about history" author, thank you very much for being with us. i don't know if the president was joking or not. but give us the very short version of how canada did not burn down the white house in the
3:44 am
war of 1812. >> good morning, john. dust off your history books. it is one of the obscure moments for most of us. we don't know much about history. it was the second war between the united states and the british. what happened was the united states invaded canada in 1813 and burned down work, modern day toronto. so the burning of washington, d.c. by the british in 1814 was really in retaliation for that act. he isn't a jeopardy contestant. sit having a full world view. history does matter. and i think that's the real issue here. >> that begs the question, what is the president's relationship with history? and if you'll bear with me, we

3:46 am
