5:20 am
know why, we are hopeful that the secretary can come back with those. there needs to be process of steps that we can verify that north koreans are acting from good faith, from their perspective, they need to trust us too. they want to see the economic sanctions, they want to see relief, that want to make sure we don't want to take over the country. a lot of mistrust on both sides and a lot of trust that needs to be gained in really important meetings. pete: morgan, a lot of people see you on fox and don't know that you served overseas. >> i want to thank people who have served overseas, i know what it is to spend holidays away from families, thank you, thank you to men and women serving overseas. pete: well done. >> go navy. pete: go army all the way. president trump has a message for them. anne harris faulkner live from
