guys deserve a o lot of credit. paul: that's it for this week's show. thanks to my panel and especially thanks to all of you for watching. ngi'm paul gigot, hope to see yu right here next week. ♪ ♪ arthel: well, the 2020 spotlight turning to iowa tonight in about three hours from now. new york democratic kirsten gillibrand will take the stage for a fox news town hall in dubuque. this comes as gillibrand struggles to stand out from the nearly two dozen other candidates. hello and welcome come to a brand new hour inside "america's news headquarters," i'm arthel neville. eric: hello, everyone, i'm eric shawn. senator gillibrand was able to meet the threshold to qualify for the debate later this month, but she's still lagging behind in fundraising and donor
1:01 pm
support. she ranks near the bottom of all the major polls, so she is hoping that tonight's town hall here on the fox news channel could be a turning point for her campaign. peter doocy is live in dubuque, iowa, where the event will be held later on in about three hours from now. hi, peter. >> reporter: hi, eric. senator gillibrand does not appear to be one of the democratic candidates for president on president trump's radar yet, but he is on hers. and now she is sharpening the language that she is using to describe the president that she hopes to challenge. >> he does all of this because he wants you to believe he's strong. he is not. our president is a coward! >> reporter: gillibrand sits at 0.3% support in the real clear politicses average of polls and is hoping to break through with a new plan that offers two years of free public college in exchange for one year
1:02 pm
of public service or four years of free public college in exchange for two years of public service. but she isn't offering any details about how that would be paid for. instead, writing on, quote: my proposal draws on the model of the g.i. bill which has provided access to opportunity for generations of americans who have defended our nation through military service. a national investment we must always be working to improve and expand for our men and women in uniform. gillibrand argues that new hampshire and iowa are two states this program should be really a attractive to because too many young iowans don't have enough attractive options to stay in the state. it's going to be really interesting to see how that plays out, because iowa's governor -- kim renolingsdz, a republican -- told us they've recently rolled out lots of alternatives for young people here. >> we're doing some really unique things with registered apprenticeship programs in our high schools where students, for
1:03 pm
instance, if they participate in the welding apprenticeship program, they actually are earning $50,000 the last two years of high school. >> reporter: gillibrand is making her way here from california where she shared the stage with many other democrats running for president, but tonight she's got the stage to herself, just her and chris wallace and a few hundred people from the neighborhood here in dubuque. eric? eric: all right, peter, these town halls we've been having with the democrats have been hugely successful, so we'll see if this one follows up on that tonight. thank you, peter. arthel: all right, eric. despite backlash from both parties, the white house is defending president trump's threat to slap new tariffs on mexico if mexico does not do plaintiff more to stop central american migrants from crossing the border south of the u.s. in an exclusive interview with maria bartiromo on "sunday morning futures," vice president mike pence says both congress and mexico will need to do more to address immigration. >> congress needs to step up and
1:04 pm
bring about the kind of reforms that'll close these loopholes and end that magnet that drug cartels and human traffickers are using, and we'll continue to call on mexico and take actions necessary to see to it that mexico does their job to insure that this mass exodus and humanitarian crisis comes to an end. arthel: let's go to garrett tenney live at the white house with more. hi, garrett. >> reporter: hey, arthel. this weekend mexico's president suggested he is open to doing more to stop the flow of migrants coming to u.s.' southern border and also said he is hopeful and optimistic that this week's summit in d.c. with administration officials to discuss the tariffs will produce good results. but today president trump cast some doubt on just how much progress can come out of those talks when he tweeted: mexico is sending a big delegation to talk about the border. problem is they've been talking for 25 years. we want action, not talk. they could solve the border crisis in one day if they so desired, otherwise our companies
1:05 pm
and jobs are coming back to usa. the white house also doubling down on the president's threat to hit mexico with new tariffs despite strong opposition from business leaders and gop if lawmakers including louisiana senator john kennedy who earlier today on cbs' "face the nation" said that he is concerned that it is a mistake, and he said it could jeopardize the u.s.' credibility going forward when it comes to future trade negotiations. >> my experience with the president is he's a very smart man. i wouldn't call him risk-averse. [laughter] he's been known to play with fire but not live hand grenades. and if he slaps a 25% tariff on mexico, it's going to tank the american economy. and i think the president knows that, and i don't think he'll do it. >> reporter: despite that, today administration officials said that the president is dead serious about these tariffs and that he does plan to go forward with them if mexico does not do more to secure the border.
1:06 pm
arthel? arthel: hey, garrett, meanwhile the president is poised to go to u.k. tonight where he is looking past brexit, i understand, the make a direct trade deal with the brits. tell us more about that. >> he'll take off to u.k. tonight, tomorrow he'll head to buckingham palace where he will meet with the queen. even ahead of this visit he has plenty to say about u.k. politics including brexit, and he told the sunday times in an interview if the u.k. decides to leave the e.u. without a deal, the u.s. stands ready to step in quickly to fill that hole with a trade deal of its own. >> but i will say that we have the potential to be an incredible trade partner with the u.k. you know, we're doing relatively little compared to what we could be doing with the u.k. much, i think, much bigger than european union. >> reporter: of course, later on in the week on thursday president trump will celebrate or honor, rather, the 75
1:07 pm
anniversary of d-day at normandy with other european leaders. arthel: garrett tenny, thank you very much. eric: meanwhile in washington, the controversy continues over special counsel robert mueller's first public remarks on whether or not president trump obstructed justice in the russia investigation. as you know, mr. mueller left that up in the air, and the result is a democratic party leadership that is divided on the potential of impeachment proceedings. >> and i feel like we have a moral obligation now to investigate this president. impeachment proceedings will give us more legal leverage to be able to get the information congress needs to get to bottom of what his administration has done while they're in office. >> the speaker has not reached the conclusion, and i haven't either, that it's best for the country to put us through an impeachment proceeding that we know is destined for failure in the senate. now, that calculus may change if the president continues to stonewall it. eric: will the democrat do it?
1:08 pm
a commentary writer for the washington examiner joins us. you wrote that six presidential candidates backed impeachment hearings, now that's up to ten, and you've got a slew of house democrats and one republican, but is that at this point, considering a republican senate and the lack of other issues, even realistic? >> right now it's not considered real realistic, and house speaker nancy pelosi has attempted to make democrats look reasonable and rational by going the route of these congressional investigations with the attempt of trying to, basically, make them look like they're being diligent and thoughtful in investigating president trump and his administration. but it's largely a facade because the ultimate conclusion and the goal that they've always had is to impeach trump. and you can make the argument that it's actually a 2020 campaign strategy, to impugn his reputation. eric: so, basically, you're saying that even if it never happens, they can continue talking about it, and that would be a major campaign issue for
1:09 pm
them? >> it could be because right now if house speaker pelosi goes for impeachment, the likelihood that it actually reaches the senate and the senate actually convicts the president and removes him from the office, at that point you're looking at, basically, a strategy in which the democratic nominee at that point could use that to say, hey, this president was impeached by the house, therefore, you should elect me and, therefore, there's going to be ample evidence that democrats would, you know, benefit politically in this move. eric: well, you know, bill clinton came out of his impeachment situation with higher poll ratings. you know, obviously, richard nixon resigned. so what would be the impact on such a candidacy? could it boomerang on them? >> absolutely. and bill clinton is a perfect example. trump is, in many ways, kind of playing this game of impeachment talks because it does help him politically. and at this moment the cnn released a poll that 41% of americans support impeachment
1:10 pm
while 54% actually disapprove. so there seems to be this talk, this narrative that, you know, more republicans -- i'm sorry, more democrats who come out to say they're for impeachment, and then you have justin amash, the sole republican, they're trying to make this vocal minority the majority. eric the president has said that he doesn't like the i-word and doesn't even consider this a possibility. but how does it help him? there have been some articles that say he basically, secretly actually wants it because it keeps it going. is that even realistic? >> well, his approval numbers have been going up. they may not be over 50%, but they're certainly into the mid 40s at this moment, and that's certainly been beneficial to him in terms of trying to get the support of his republican base. and the way that voted -- the base that voted for him in 2016. many people don't really care about, say, things like tariffs. there's a good chunk of republicans who do, but it's largely about trying to curb the
1:11 pm
immigration problem, it's about getting beneficial trade deals to the united states, and they don't care about what he's actually done or the inner workings of the white house, they care about results. eric: meanwhile, "the wall street journal" the other day, the editorial page weighed in on this and talked about robert mueller in which everyone thought he would say something during the ten minute remarks in which he took no questions and it, to some, had the opposite effect. here's what the journal says: he has weighed in for the democrats though he doesn't have to be politically accountable as he skips town. house speaker nancy pelosi, isn't this fortunate? the media and back bench pressure will build on her to open an impeachment inquiry to charge donald trump with obstructing an investigation that wasn't obstructed into a conspiracy that didn't exist. if you were going to take bets, do you think she will be forced into a corner to start impeachment hearings? >> that's only if these congressional investigations turn up something that might be
1:12 pm
advantageous to them to start impeachment proceedings. so far they haven't, and you have to look at this as a -- if they don't really, if these congressional investigations don't get the results that they desire, then they can basically use this term that they've been using over the past couple of weekes of a trump cover-up and basically saying they can't get any of these investigations completed because trump is covering it up. or if they do get the results they want, they also can say that trump is covering it up. so in many ways, that helps them to move towards impeachment proceedings, but speaker pelosi has a pretty big burden on her -- eric: and for right now she's holding the line, but certainly doesn't mean it won't be an issue that can be used in the campaign. sirjaj, thanks for joining us. arthel: we are learning new information about friday's mass shoot anything virginia beach as investigators search for a motive. the community holding a prayer vigil last night for the 11 civil servants and the contractor who were killed.
1:13 pm
police also revealing why it took more than half an hour after the first shots were fired until the gunman was captured. jackie heinrich with more now live in our new york city newsroom. >> reporter: still a lot of unanswered questions for the victims and their families. police still don't know why the suspected gunman opened fire on his colleagues. this morning confirming that dewayne craddock had not been fired from his job, and his employer was also not in the process of firing him. the virginia beach community is mourn z those 12 people killed, 11 city employees and a contractor who was trying to file a permit. at the scene dozens of police and fbi agents who recovered two legally-purchased handguns -- one with a suppressor and several empty magazines. investigators also found more weapons in the gunman's home. the discussion now turning political after at least 16 democrats running for president encouraged lawmakers to enact gun safety laws, but both local
1:14 pm
police and the trump administration countered those calls saying this particular case likely could not have been prevented with more gun control. >> i'm a member of major city chiefs. we did publish something about a year and a half ago. i don't think most of that would have mattered in this particular case. >> there are things the government can do, and there's things this government is doing, but we're never going to protect everybody against everybody who is deranged. >> reporter: last night the community came together to pray, reading each victim's name aloud followed by a moment of silence at a vigil. four people are still recovering at two local hospitals in critical condition, one of them taking a turn for the worse after a surgery. authorities still not given any information on those victims who are still in the hospital. arthel? arthel: jacqui heinrich, thank you. eric: nine days after a mother of five from connecticut went missing, police have arrested her estranged husband and his girlfriend on charges connected to the woman's disappearance. the 50-year-old was last seen dropping her children off at
1:15 pm
school on may 24th. christina coleman live in our los angeles bureau with the very latest on this developing story. hi, christina. >> reporter: hi, eric. well, they are charged with hindering a prosecution and tampering with evidence in relation to disappearance of jennifer dulose, her estranged husband, 51-year-old and his girlfriend, a 44-year-old, are being held on $500,000. they're scheduled to appear at norwalk superior court tomorrow. police escorted the husband from his luxury home last night. he has two homes in farmington, connecticut. police searched both this weekend. in the past 48 hours, state police also obtained dna samples. but for the past two years, they've been locked in a contentious custody battle over the couple's five children. jennifer has been missing since may 24th. she was last seen dropping her kids off at school but failed to show up for two appointments later that day. by 7 p.m. her kids reported her
1:16 pm
missing. when jennifer filed for divorce, she told the court in one of nearly 500 filings she was afraid of how her husband would react. she said, i'm terrified for my family's safety, especially since discovering the gun as my husband has a history of controlling, volatile and delusional behavior. since her disappearance, a massive search for leads. her 2017 chevy suburban was found close to a local park that police searched with dogs and drones. jennifer is the mom of two sets of twins including three sons and two daughters all under the age of 13. now at this point her kids are reportedly staying with their grandmother who hired an armed guard and a vigil is scheduled tonight for their mother. eric? eric: christina, thanks so much. arthel: chaos erupting in venice, italy, today when an out of control cruise ship rams a boat full of tourists.

[ dogs howling ] seriously? embrace the mischief. say "get pets tickets" into your x1 voice remote to see it in theaters. ♪ ♪ arthel: the justice department not charge julian assange for his role in exposing cia spying secrets, this according to a new report from politico. but the founder of wikileaks still faces a slew of charges for disclosing state secrets. assange faces 17 counts of violating the espionage act. the law was enacted in 1917 during world war i and makes it a crime to disclose national security secrets without permission. now, it never touched on press freedom until the 1971 pentagon papers case when the supreme court ruled the government can prosecute newspapers that publish classified information under this very law.
1:22 pm
the assange case is raising new concerns about whether more journalists could face charges. joining me to discuss this is judy miller, she's add adjunct fellow at the manhattan institute and also a fox news contributor. judy, nice to see you. >> nice to see you, arthel. arthel: i want to start here, judy. first of all, are the assange indictments fair and lawful, and was the espionage act the way to go? and also tag on are you surprised that the justice department had reportedly decided not to charge assange for his role in exposing some of the cia's most secret spying tools? >> well, on the latter question that you asked, i was not surprised that the justice department does not want to proceed with that indictment and actions because the cia has never addressed the authenticity of those documents, and it doesn't want to discuss them or how they were obtained or
1:23 pm
anything about them in an open court. so i was not surprised that the department decided that it had enough against julian assange not to pursue this other matter as it's called, the classified vaults documents. that doesn't surprise me. what does surprise me is the government's decision and the justice department's decision to go after julian assange for parts of the espionage act that really put a lot of journalists in danger. now, first of all, i want to tell you i do not believe that julian assange is a journalist. if he worked for "the new york times," "the washington post" and had encouraged sources, taught them how to crack a pass code to get into a government database, they'd be fired. so julian assange is not a responsible journalist. that being said, the government
1:24 pm
action still raises very serious concerns because the indictment, the superseding indictments that were issued last week, say that it's a crime, and he committed a crime by, quote, soliciting and encouraging sources to give him classified information. now, that's what we do. [laughter] that's what journalists in the business of cracking national security stories do for a living. and, therefore, some have argued and many have argued -- and i tend to agree -- that this puts all of us in danger despite julian assange's obvious problems and his dubious journalistic credentials. arthel: yeah, to your point, judy, many other news organizations obtained the exact same documents from wikileaks which, again, was not approved by the government, but they did not reveal confidential sources. also, as you well know during president george w. bush's second term and frequently
1:25 pm
during president obama's tenure, the doj used the espionage act more frequently to target officials, not actual spies who leaked information to reporters and made its way, that information made its way to public sphere. so do the assange indictments impinge on freedom of the press or national security journalism? again, pointing out that he's not a journalist. >> they could, because if a lot of these leak investigations that are underway actually produce indictments, many more of us could be charged. you know, i went to jail in an effort ten years ago to protect a source, and i'd be willing to do so again. but i'm afraid that the espionage act itself makes the publishing or the soliciting of such information a crime. my solution is let's get the congress to get its act in order here and pass an amendment to espionage act of 1917 that
1:26 pm
distinguishes between journalists and spies and protects journalists and the free flow of information. now, do i think that's going to happen? no, i don't. this congress can't seem to do anything. that's what should happen, however. arthel: well, that's interesting you say that, because i want to pull up a quote from georgia kneel jaffer -- georgia meal jaffer. here it is, quote: for the purposes of press freedom what matters is not who counts as a journalist, but whether journalistic activities -- whether performed by a journalist or anyone else -- can be crimes in america. the trump administration's move could establish a precedent used to criminalize further acts of national security journalism. the charges rely almost entirely on conduct that investigative journalists engage in every day. the indictment should be understood as a frontal attack on press freedom. your last words, judy, on that. >> i think that i agree with
1:27 pm
him, and i agree that even though julian assange is no journalist, certainly not a good journalist if you think he is one, i think what's happening raises really profound challenges for the first amendment and for the free flow of information to public. after all, this is what we do, and this is what the public needs to know. if a government or a corporation can say we're going to make it impossible or criminal for the public to get this information, then i think the democracy that we live in suffers, and that's what i'm worried about even though i still particularly like julian assange. arthel: you spent 85 days in jail to protect a confidential source at the time, judy miller -- >> i did. [laughter] arthel: thank you. good talking to you. >> thank you. eric: a brave and courageous crusader for the truth. well, if you disappoint if kim jong un, you don't get fired, you get killed. that, at least, is the claim.

arthel: relentless flooding continues to wreak havoc across the midwest and southern plains. officials now urging residents to be prepared to flee amid fears that rising river waters could swamp roads and cut off evacuation routes. we have fox news team coverage. meteorologist adam klotz is standing by at the fox extreme weather center with the forecast, but first, casey steagall is live in conway, arkansas. casey? >> reporter: hey, arthel, this is treasure hills, one of these quaint suburbs of conway arkansas, one of the many areas throughout this region that has taken on a whole lot of flood water. i want you to see what's going on back here live in the background. you can see this house that is basically surrounded by a wall of sandbags that they've made to try and keep the water out. they even have pumps running to
1:33 pm
try and divert it away. and they tell us that the water is not in the house just yet, fortunately. but if you follow me over this way, and this is all about elevation, as you know, this house is slightly higher than this one, and you can see the results because this home has practically been engulfed by the flood waters. the faulkner county sheriff took us out early this morning and showed us some of these neighborhoods that are only reachable by boat. we saw home after home water logged, a lot of farmland underwater, and it could have a devastating impact on the local agriculture industry. now, most evacuations around the state have been voluntary, and many residents are electing to stay. we met one man who told us he's at least had time to prepare, which is something that he is grateful for. >> that was one advantage, if you can say that, to this flood is we did have enough warning that people were able to, like i
1:34 pm
said, we got all of our furniture out of our house. you had time to do a lot of that. in '16 we didn't have as much time, so we got enough food and generators. but whenever they turn the power off at my house, i said, i'm outta the here. >> reporter: outta there once the power went off. you know, a lot of focus the has been now placed on the levees all across the state of arkansas up and down the raging river because we've already seen one or two that have been breached because of these record amounts of water fall and water that's moving through the river. and a few others down in and around the little rock area are said to be leaking, so there is a great concern that there could be additional levee breaches as these historic rainfalls and water continue making their way downstream. eric, arthel? back to you guys.
1:35 pm
arthel: hey, casey, how are you getting to your location? >> reporter: so we are on a road that is still open. you have to go around kind of in some grass, but it's blocked off by the national guard. we have special permission to be in here through the sheriff's office. and this is an area that is, again, you have some houses that are up a little higher, and you have some that are a little lower. so the key, obviously, when you drive around and try to find locations to go live from, we try to look for some higher ground because in some areas, arthel, this water can come up very, very quickly, as you well know. arthel: i do well know that. okay, casey steagall, thank you very much. we're going to get the forecast now because, thanks, casey, it's not looking good for the week ahead. meteorologist adam klotz is live in the weather center and, adam, i very well know how much the rising water can happen quickly. that water can come out of nowhere. >> reporter: it really can, and there's such a huge area that we're talking about that's
1:36 pm
just inundated with all of this rain. these are our river gauges across the mississippi. everything here in these pink or purple colors, that is major flooding. this is the arkansas river, and you notice pretty much every gauge at major flood levels, and there's all this water back behind it, it all has to go somewhere and, unfortunately, we're adding more water to it in the week ahead. here's what's currently happening right now, there are some areas where there's the possibility of severe thunderstorms. this is in the mid-atlantic, a big area highlighted in this yellow box. winds up to 60 miles an hour, maybe some hail, definitely heavy rain stretching all the way back off towards the west, we're paying attention to another area where from texas running all the way up into some of the mountain states where you could see some of these big, severe thunderstorms. but you see and you really notice this isn't a horribly widespread event. this is our future radar, mostly dry in the middle of the country for today. this is your sunday forecast. but if i add the entire week coming up ahead, it becomes a bit of a bull's eye.
1:37 pm
all of these areas that we're most concerned about, very widespread. looking at spots getting up to 6 inches, at least 3 inches -- 6 inches in the week ahead. which means this has to go back to arkansas river where we're seeing all that flooding today and eventually has to make its way down the mississippi. flooding is going continue to be an issue for the next couple of weeks at least. arthel: i feel for them. eric? eric: turning to north korea now. there is a report, unconfirmed for days now, that the lead negotiator for the regime was executed because of the two recent summits with president trump did not achieve the dictator's goals. reports that previous north korea diplomats that suffered the same fatal fate, though, have proven wrong, so we'll see. and the u.s. is trying to confirm this latest one. just the prospect that your job security could end not with a firing, but fatally, sends a
1:38 pm
chilling message around the globe. it's no wonder that kim's top diplomat in our country, kim song, keeps his mouth shut whenever i ask him about the fate of the young american, otto warmbier. do you have any reaction if new york city names your street otto warmbier way? >> no. eric: he is north korean ambassador kim song. he uses the u.n. to lash out against the united states but refuses to talk about a young american victim of his government. otto warmbier, the 22-year-old ohio student who a federal judge ruled was arrested, forced to give a false confession, then tortured and beaten to death at the hands of the regime. anything to say at all, sir? >> i have nothing to comment. eric: no apology, no words of comfort, nothing from the regime's top diplomat in our country. and when given another chance yesterday, we received only stone-faced silence. ambassador, yes, eric shawn at
1:39 pm
fox news. does your government have any plans to apologize for the torture and killing of the young american, otto warmbier? and do you have any statement for the warmbier family, sir? will you prosecute those who are responsible for his torture and murder? is there anything you want to say? okay, any more questions? okay, you, please. eric: that news conference a week before last, at that news conference the ambassador told the press corps that he does hope to have another chance to answer questions, though we're not holding our breath. so what is it like to be a member of kim jong un's diplomatic corps, and what are they really used for? gordon chang joins us now, author of "losing south korea." it seems that if the ambassador had said anything, we look at it as being rude or arrogant or heartless, but if he said something, it could mean his -- >> so if he said anything conciliatory to you, he probably
1:40 pm
would have been yanked back to pyongyang, put in a concentration camp with his family, parents, children. so, you know, that clearly would be an event that he wants to avoid. and, you know, as you say, for us it might be just words, but for the regime which is so insecure, this is critical. eric: what do you make of these reports that at least four of the diplomats who were involved in the negotiations with the president and the administration have been executed? do you believe it? is it possible or just -- other people in the past have shown up months later. >> it's plausible, but it's confirmed. the report that you're referring to just referred to a sickle, unnamed -- single, unnamed source. no even description of the person. that really leads a lot of people to question it. but also there are some factors which indicate it could have occurred. so, for instance, the communist workers' party paper, most authoritative publication in north korea, talked about
1:41 pm
anti-reregime, anti-revolutionary elements, that they would meet the stern judgment of the state, and they only use that language when they kill people. so, clearly, something's up, you know? and i think that probably there was the execution of at least one of these individuals, maybe not all five. but the point is clearly there's turbulence. whether there were executions or not, there is turbulence. eric: one with of the officials, very high ranking, met with the president in the oval office in january. let's take a look. this is when he brought a message to chairman kim from -- from -- to president from chairman kim. >> this is a more significant development, that the president called him north korea's second most important leader. and being number two in north korea is a very dangerous occupation.

spy for north korea. i wouldn't really call him a diplomat, but certainly he's a right-hand man, and his disappearance -- and we haven't seen him for more than a month -- is an important story. eric: why would kim be disappointed he thought he would get a deal at the summit? >> kim probably thought that he could push the united states around, and there are a number of reasons why he would think that, but i think he was certainly deluded. and, you know, we've found from president trump that he keeps his adversaries off balance. even though he may say nice things about them, nonetheless, trump has been plague -- playing kim well. nonetheless, i think right now he's at a point where he doesn't know what to do, and he does need sanctions relief. eric: what do you think it'll take to break the frozen impasse right now that the talks apparently are at? >> i think it'll be much more tougher sanctions enforcement by the united states not only on north korea, but also can china,
1:43 pm
russia and south korea, because they've been all openly violating sanctions. i think that if we put kim at a choice where he either keeps his weapons or his life but not both -- eric: how does he do that? >> really cuts off the money flow to north korea. so far the u.s. has cut about half the money flow, but we could do a lot more, and we need to do a lot more to make kim really decide that he's got to give up his weapons. eric: should we give hem that message before we do it or just go ahead and try that? >> just go out and do it because they don't believe us. eric: do you think it, finally, will end with some type of resolution, or this'll just continue the way it is? >> really depends on the president of the united states. the president can disarm kim without the use of force if he shows the political will to do it. he really needs to go after the chinese, and that has been something that american presidents have been reluctant to do. eric: that is the message from gordon chang. always good to see you, thank you for your insight. >> thankses, eric. arthel: all right.
