4:00 am
the rate comparisons... and flo in a boat. ♪ insurance adventure awaits at "progressive on ice." tickets not available now or ever. who used expedia to book the vacation rental which led to the discovery that sometimes a little down time can lift you right up. expedia. everything you need to go. if there's a theme so far to president trump's visit to osaka, it's his sunny relationships with dictators. in the space of a single day, president trump made light of russian interference in the 2020 election to putin's face. >> he lost the election, and he was put into office because of russian interference. >> thank you on behalf of a lot of people. i want to congratulate you.
4:01 am
you've done a spectacular job. >> praised the saudi prince who many believe was involved with the murder of jamal khashoggi. >> what about the murder of jamal khashoggi, the crown prince? >> thank you so much, i appreciate it. >> and tweeted hopefulliy about seeing kim jong-un again if only just to shake his hands, if only. >> if you do meet kim jong-un at the dmz tomorrow, would you step across the border into north korea? >> sure, i would. i would. i feel very comfortable doing that. this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. >> good saturday morning to you. president trump has landed in south korea. the question is will he now go to north korea next. >> and the question is out because the president tweeted an invitation to meet north korean leader kim jong-un at the dmz for a handshake. that's something no other president has ever done. there were a lot of other
4:02 am
headlines coming out of the g20 as the president gave an hour and 14-minute press conference. >> president trump said trade talks are back on with china with new tariffs on hold. he pushed back on the idea that he was joking about election meddling with vladimir putin and said the murder of jamal khashoggi made him angry while defending his relationship with the man the cia says ordered the murder. >> live from osaka, diplomatic editor nic robertson now. nic, as you watched that press conference, i know -- what stood out to you first and foremost? >> reporter: you know, i think the president's notion of trying to sort of hook up casually with kim jong-un, the north korean dictator, at the dmz by means a tweet just putting it out there and kim responding quickly, i think that kind of stood out. the president when he was asked about it because if kim jong-un does show up there, he's going to wants president trump to step across the line and be the first
4:03 am
sitting president into the territory of north korea. the president saying that he would be comfortable doing that. but then realizing that he could be setting himself up for a fall, he was asked the question would you worry if he didn't show up, he said, no, he wouldn't be worried about that. another thing that stood out is where he tried to defend president putin. he said again president putin denied that his meddling in the u.s. elections, this is when the intelligence services of the united states believe russia is about to do it again in the 2020 elections. what president trump had to say about trade in his conversation. it was a big concern. president allaying concerns at least for now saying that the trade talks are back. but laying out what he will and won't do. this is what he said -- >> we will be able continuing to negotiate, and i promise that for at least the time being we're not going to be lifting tariffs on china.
4:04 am
we won't be adding an additional tremdoendous amounts -- we have $350 billion left which could be taxed, could be tariffed. and we're not doing that. we're going to work with china on where we left off to see if we can make a deal. >> reporter: but where the pet seemed to be put on the spot was his relationship with president erdogan of turkey. erdogan buying the sophisticated surface-to-air missiles from russia that are incompatible with the fighter jet that turkey is buying for the united states. president trump saying he didn't want sanctions, he didn't want to have the relationship between the two countries interfered upon if turkey receives the missile systems this month. president erdogan saying he
4:05 am
believes he got a signoff on president trump that there wouldn't be a price to pay if the missiles are delivered. and of course president trump speaking about the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi, essentially defending the saudi crown prince who he said no one's pointed the finger at, yet both the cia and the u.s. representative have said that the crown prince bears some responsibility. >> nic, thank you. still want to go to cnn correspondents paula hancocks now. she is in south korea. as we talk about, paula, what might happen between the president and kim jong-un in north korea, what are we hearing from south korea about the statement? >> reporter: just a couple of minutes ago, trump's convoy passed here in downtown seoul, about a mile away from the blue house. we'd imagine he is at the blue house now meeting with south korean president moon jae-in. they'll be having a dinner this
4:06 am
evening. and of course what the south korean president heard, the facts that mr. trump has tweeted he wants a meeting, has offered this handshake across the border to kim jong-un, that will delight the south korean president. he wants nothing more than more engagement between the north and the united states. of course there has been some remarkable things said about what could happen if the u.s. president and the north korean leader do end up at the dmz together. >> if you do meet kim jong-un at the dmz tomorrow, would you step across the border into north korea? >> sure, i would. i would. i would springfiefeel comfortab that. i would have no problem. >> reporter: that's an historic statement. if he does, that he would be the first american president to step foot on the north korean side of the area, an area that's been tense in the past. he used to have the north and
4:07 am
south korean soldiers facing off against each other, a matter of feet away from each other. now we know that they have taken all the armament out of that part of the dmz at this point. certainly that will be an historic photo opportunities. >> as it something that we're watching now. president trump as he gets there to meet with the president of south korea, moon jae-in. he is there now, getting ready for dinner. are you looking at them as he steps out of his motorcade. it will be interesting to see what south korea does with this information that it's very possible president trump will meet with north korean president kim jong-un. we have not heard from kim jong-un as to whether that will happen. they will be meeting tonight. obviously an awful lot of things on the agendas with us now. analyst and columnist for the "washington post" joining us. when you heard that, josh, him
4:08 am
saying he'd be comfortable stepping over that line, he would have no problem doing that, what would the u.s. get out of a move like that? >> reporter: it's not clear what the united states would get out of it, but it's very clear what donald trump would get out of it. and that is simply another extension of his nuclear talks with kim jong-un which don't seem to actually be producing the results they have when kim jong-un reduced his nuclear stockpile. last night when the president was tweeting about this, i contacted my sources in the u.s. and south korean government the, and they both said they had no idea what president trump was tweeting about. it seems as if he made this up on the spot. and sort of came up with this on his own. didn't even consult the north koreans. we can say this is donald trump trying to extend his nuclear diplomacy and put on a show outside the actual negotiations and the coordination that you
4:09 am
would usually see between the u.s., south korea, and north korea, in a meeting of this level. >> north korean was taken offguard. they didn't know it was happening. the president's administration didn't know it was going to happen. let me ask you this -- what happens if kim jong-un does not respond? >> reporter: if kim jong-un doesn't show up it's a huge embarrassment for president trump because he said it publicly. the trips to the dmz are often kept in secret because they often don't work out. the fact that he's now just decided to tweet out this invitati invitation, if kim jong-un accepts, fine. if he doesn't accept, there's a lot of egg on donald trump's face and on the reputation of the united states. >> would a kfrconversation, if meeting happened, would it have to include some nuclear diplomacy for it to be seen as successful? it -- it only can't just be, hi, how you doing? >> again, it depends what your
4:10 am
goal s. for president trump the process is the success. he just wants to keeps this going. he wants to keep the show on. a hands -- a handshake is enough. for the officials from the south koreans and probably north koreans, they're going to want substance out of this meeting. why would anyone think there could be any substance when the meeting wasn't actually scheduled or negotiated or planned. it was just a presidential tweet while he was on a trip. >> okay. i want to switch to china here because the president talked about china, as well. saying today we had a great meeting with president xi, saying they're going to continue to negotiate. the president said, i promise that for the time being we are not going to be lifting tariffs on china. we're talking about $350 billion at stake. he said $16 billion of tariffs he is going to give to farmers in the u.s. as aid.
4:11 am
at the end of the day, the u.s. really is still paying all of those tariffs because it's getting passed down to the consumer here. how plausible is this promise that the president is making? >> reporter: the president of the united states has the ability to give farmers a bunch of money. it's not plausible to say that that money is coming from china because china doesn't pay the cost of it, none of it. what more broadly the meeting is a huge win for xi jinping. not only did he get a delay in tariffs. he also got the president to say that the united states would resume selling to huawei, the huge chinese tech company. he said that -- it was also a result of the meeting that president trump said -- praised xi for continuing with the trade talks. so what you have here is a set of concessions by president trump with no real benefit that he could see. a vague promise to buy more american part products.
4:12 am
that is exactly what the chinese government wanted. that is exactly what hawks inside the u.s. administration feared was that president would get into the room with xi, make a bunch of promises, give up a bunch. concessions, and de-- bunch of concessions, and derail what the u.s. is placing on china. especially with regard to huawei. >> there are real concerns about how that could be used for spying, not just in the u.s. but elsewhere. so how does the president -- how does the president explain that and brush off his own intel? >> reporter: that's right. as far as the state department and the intelligence community and the defense department's concerned, wow w-- huawei is a national security issue. they've traded that for farm product sales. you can't explain that except to say that he's trying to make a deal. it undermines the argument that this is a real national security
4:13 am
issue. if you're just trading it away. it's not the first time that trump has done that and probably won't be the last. >> when we look at the bigger picture here, the president is talking an awful lot about a lot of foreign policy and we're paying a lot of attention, the nation is, to 2020. how does everything that he is doing this morning, right now, with all of these issues, with china, with north korea, with russia, with jamal khashoggi, how does that play for him politically? >> reporter: yeah. i would say with the exception of the saudi arabia example because i think most americans and i know i count myself among them, put off that the fact that president trump president trump is overlooking the murder of jamal khashoggi and praising the saudi regime. >> that plays well. that exception in mind, i think all of his moves are to bolster his 2020 prospects. having peace with north korea,
4:14 am
that's a good campaign issue. in taking down the -- ratcheting down the pressure of the u.s. and china's relationship, that's bad for national security, but it's good politics. you know, we can see that the president, as he gets closer to his election, he's trying to wrap up the more contentious farm policy issues so he can run on solving. the problem, of course, is that he's not kuehl solving them. he's tapering amy never. that will make them work in the long run. but not politically. his political thstature and prospects are his number-one priority. >> we're seeing on the screen there the president as he has arrived at the blue house with president moon jae-in. they're getting ready for a meeting and dinner tonight. and the foreign minister of south korea has talked about this offering that president trump has made to jordan jong to meet him in the dmz -- kim jong-un to meet him in the dmz, an interesting proposal. what do you think, josh, this
4:15 am
means to south korea? >> reporter: yeah, well, south korea, especially president moon, was very invested in this u.s.-naep nuclear negotiation process. they wanted to succeeds. president moon has put a lot of his own capital into this process. it stands to reason that he would be very much in five of a meeting, why not? that's a good photo opportunity. it means the talks are still alive. it means there's a prospect for nuclear -- a nuclear deal. however, it's totally clear that he was caught offguard. when you have the president of south korea talking about a meeting between the american president and the north korean leader in his own country and he's not aware of it, that can't be good. >> right, what is the trustworthy factor here? for moon and for -- president moon and for trump? >> reporter: i mean, there is nobody in the world including president trump who knows what president trump is going to do
4:16 am
from minute to minute. that's a hugely destabilizing factor in all of american farm policy and for all these of these countries. they don't know how to deal with it. they don't know how to deal with trump. they're trying to manage him and get him to do things they want. sometimes they succeed and sometimes they don't. the unpredictablity is a huge risk. president trump and has people will say unpredictability is an asset. if he's not doing it, nobody knows what he's doing, and if it can change back and forth on a dime. white approximately moon may be happy -- while president moon may be happy with president trump, if it doesn't result in a meeting, they're both going to be hurt. president moon did not say in the policy because he wasn't consulted. that is, you know, dysfunctional and incompetent practices of foreign policy. it's not to say it won't work
4:17 am
sometimes. we've seen the president trump style can get things done. but it really is no way to run a railroad. >> josh, victor blackwell here, as we're watching live on the right side of the screen, pump -- we see members of the administration there, as well. secretary pompeo, we saw treasury secretary there. steve mnuchin also, white house advisers, jared kushner and ivanka trump. and the president will be sitting down with moon jae-in. this will be closed to the press after he we have a couple of official -- after we have a couple of official photos with president moon and president trump, as well. you talk busy how excited president moon must be about this tweet from president trump inviting kim jong-un to the dmz, but he more than likes to. he neds this, right? he ran on relation with north korea. he needs this economically, he needs sanctions to be lifted, as well, so they can continue to work north korea. is he getting everything he
4:18 am
wants from the trump-kim relationship? he also wants the korean war to end. how happy is moon likely with the fruit of the trump-kim relationship thus far? >> reporter: well, you're absolutely right. president moon has done nothing short of bet his entire president oh this process. that is -- presidency on this process. that is in a way handing his future to donald trump and kim jong-un, probably most risky thing you could think of to do as a world leader. now he's gotten a lot of what he wants. and president trump has been aggressive and very willing to move forward with this north korean diplomacy. again, there's an argument for that. and in a sense, it's working. but on the other hands, north korea has not done anything to
4:19 am
reduce its nuclear stockpile, toward denuclearization. it's clear that the talks have stalled. president trump doesn't have ideas to unstall them. he came up with his own ideas and tweeted without talking to anybody. if you're president moon, you have to have some encouragement. president trump seems so invested in this process that he's willing to do new things. we shouldn't say they won't work until they do or do not work. you know, on the others hands, president moon is in a very bad position politically inside his own country. the economy is lowing, his opposition is gaining steam, and you know, he must be sitting there thinking, what have i done putting my political future in the hands of donald trump and kim jong-un. these guys don't operate the way that anyone else operates. and actually the chances that they're going to come up with something are probably very low. >> closing the doors here. and again, this is closed to the press. we saw as much of this dinner that we're going to see.
4:20 am
let's go to paula hancocks also there. josh roggin, thank you for being with us, and stand by in casee need come back to you. paula, to you. we saw a couple of weeks ago japan rolled out the red carpet including the initial reduction to the new emperor and empress of japan after the abdation because of the cloudiness and the need that abe has for this close relationship with trump. how will this compare to that? what are we expecting from moon considering how much he has invested in the trump relationship now that president trump is in south korea? >> reporter: there's no doubt that he is rolling out the red carpet. just from the champagne or the cocktail reception, you could see in in the grand of the blue house there. i understand there was a famous golfer there, playing to something that president trump has dear and close to his heart. there was also a kpop ban, we're
4:21 am
hearing from legal media reports, one of ivanka trump's children, a favorite. there's no holding back to try and impress the u.s. president. no matter the pictures at the moment, they could be overshadowed by what we might see tomorrow, what we might see sunday here. as the u.s. president said he's going to the dmz. we have to wait and see if kim jong-un will meet him there. it is significant, the president that the apparently has -- it seems off the cuff, invated him to heat at the dmz. this was the fastest north korean reaction i've seen. usually takes a day or two for kcna to react. this was within hours that the deputy foreign minister said it is a very interesting suggestion. also saying that it could really push the relationship between these two leaders forward. and it's remarkable when you consider just a couple of days ago, kcna was slamming the u.s.,
4:22 am
the trump administration, slamming secretary of state pompeo. kwou of course, being careful not to say anything about the u.s. president as-seen in the president. if we see the president at the dmz, he said he's comfortable with, stepping over the mdl, the military declaration line, into the north korean side of the dmz, he will be the first sitting u.s. president to do so. and that will be remarkable. it will delight the south korean president. he did it just last year with kim jong-un. he held hands, and they stepped across the border, stepped forward again all smiles. that's a photo opportunity i think the u.s. president would love. >> a photo opportunity for the u.s. president -- what would claim the bigger win if that happens? kim jong-un or president trump? >> for kim jong-un, it would be huge. it would be another vindication of the way that he is going.
4:23 am
he can play this tomly, he can play it internationally. it is another step in the legitimatization of this north korean leerpd. you can't under-- leader. you can't underestimate how important it is for him. remember, he hasn't had to do anything or give anything up. there would be no conditions put on this third meeting. we've heard mr. trump saying let's not call it a summit, it's more like a handshake. the fact that there's a possibility, that there could be this third meeting and nothing has changed on the ground. there have been no accepts further toward denuclearization. we're in the same position as we were in february after the hanoi summit when the leaders wauklke away without agreement. when north korea or offered to give up the yongbyon facility in return for sanctions relief. that wasn't good enough for washington at the time. mr. trump wanted more. he wanted some of the undisclosed sites as part of the
4:24 am
deal. nothing's changed, and president trump has gone into that. >> the president has offered a formal invitation beyond the tweet that he sent that surprised everybody. >> as part of the record speed response that paula talked about, they mentioned that there have been no official proposal while the president says here's your official proposal. meet me at the dmz. paula happen sox in seoul. thank you. >> thank you. president trump says, quote, we're right back on track." after his much-anticipated meeting with xi jinping ping? we'll discuss that and the g20 developments with diby didebbie dipgle next. so simple, so good. get the recipes at

4:28 am
not legitimately elected. >> he's been trashed within his own party. he's been badly trashed. i felt badly for him because you look over the years, his party has virtually -- he's like the forgotten president. and i understand why they say that. he was not a good president. >> well the comments are a direct response to president carter who was asked about russia's interference in the 2016 election. >> there's no doubt that the russians did interfere in the election. and i think the interference although not yet quantified, if fully investigated, would show that trump didn't win the election in 2016. he lost the election. and he was put into office because the russians interfered for o his behalf. >> this morning, president trump says the trade talks with china are back on the table and now tariffs on hold after bone of te most highly anticipated meetings

4:30 am
he did the ban. and it -- the president's foreign policy, trade policy, i -- the things i think he needs to do that i have supported. but the problem with the policy is it's chaos. as you're saying it's not clear what he has done or hasn't done. we should ban them. they are a threat to our national security. and the president needs to take seriously our relationships with all of those different countries. and you know, my scolding the president saying take it seriously i guess is a little -- you don't make jokes about putin interfering in our russian elections. you don't say we're going to do this. china is a threat on our national security. there was a reason they were put on that list. and then sent out mixed signals as you're at this kind of conference. even in nafta, if the middle of serious negotiations that need to happen, he throws grenades on
4:31 am
tariffs. our trade policy, our foreign policy, needs to be a little more consistent. speak. >> speaking of inconsistent, president the put this out in a tweet to kim jong-un, he writes, if chairman kim see this, i would meet him at the border/dmz just to shake his hands and say hello. and the president has gone the additional step in this conference at the end of the g20 in saying i'd be comfortable with taking a step into north korea and have no problem with that. should the president meet with king at the dmz? second question, should he take that step, make history, be the first sitting president to go into the country? >> you know, the president's a disrupter. i was thinking about all of this after i saw that tweet. first of all, i don't think that you should -- he is a disrupter. and maybe, you know, he shouldn't be, in my mind, we should not be doing foreign policy. especially with despots by
4:32 am
tweets. up into the dmz, up into the demilitarized zone. that is one of the most highly charged -- it is the most highly charged place i've been, and frankly, i felt like i was looking at evil. i know that he is throughing to broker -- trying to broker a deal or trying to -- i've got a friend that i really do trust who is trying to ensure that we make sure north korea doesn't have nuclear weapons, that we try to ensure that we have stable policy. i don't know what i think. it -- i know what he's trying to break through. i don't think this is the way to do foreign policy. let's see what happens. if something good comes of it -- >> let me ask you this -- would it be harmful for the foot do it? there are many people -- for the foot do it? there are many saying why would he step into north korea. there's another apg tongle to
4:33 am
approach this, nothing else has worked thus far including summits in hanoi and in singapore. why not be the first president to do it? >> i'm a -- i actually try to be a disrupter at times, too, although i know you need this level of consistency. you need to have other people in the room. if it were -- this is -- someday i might say that step, maybe it is the first step toward ensuring we do get korea to denuclearize. here's the problem -- you're dealing with two unstable men. and i don't know what's going to happen in the foreign policy, and it doesn't consistent, we don't know what the next thing is going to be. >> yeah. >> so that's my problem with this president on his foreign policy. and heiss dealing with the despot. he isevil man when he steps into neigh. there is evil. -- into north korea.
4:34 am
there is evil. >> this goes to your committee on environment and climate change, that's the climate crisis. listen to this exchange with the president over essentially the rest of the g20 nations and the u.s. on the future of climate. >> we have the cleanest water we've ever had. we have the cleanest air. you saw the reports recently. we have the cleanest air we've ever had. but i'm not willing to sacrifice the tremendous power of what we've built up over a long period of time and what i've enhanced and revived. i'm not -- i'm just not willing to do that. >> there was the reporting that the french president would not sign to a communique that didn't have a strong statement about addressing the climate choice is. we know this president's history. the balance between industry and environment is not new. what's your reaction to what you heard from the president there? >> i have thought from the beginning that this was a serious mistake for him to

withdraw from the paris accord. look it i am somebody that deals with this issue and has to thread the eye of that needle every single day. i represent the auto industry. and i do want to protect jobs in this country. but there are jobs as we develop newer technology. you know, this -- i'll give an example of something that us from trace me deeply. this president bad mouths electric vehicles regularly. our growth market, if we want to support our companies in the united states of america for the autos, their growth market is electric vehicles. china, india, western europe, are mandating them. that's where they're going. carbonless. when he doesn't support newer technologies, support american innovation in technology, he's hurting america. i'm disappointed in what he did. i certainly hope that coming out of g20, we'd see something happen on climate change. >> the president made a lot of headlines. we'll see if he'll beat them

she was given too much
4:40 am
