3:15 pm
washington in pyongyang did say the dialogue will continue and as an apparent gesture of goodwill the u.s. and south korea are suspending their annual joint military exercises the pentagon says this is to reduce tension and to advance denuclearization on the korean peninsula but the drills have nots in fact been counseled rather replaced by another set of exercises. take stock of the second trump him summit. the talks in hanoi between trump and care more complete failure a blowout. trump says the talks failed because of what he says were unreasonable demands they wanted the sanctions lifted. in their entirety and we couldn't do that but that is not how north korea remembers the meeting because the word what we proposed wasn't the removal of all sanctions but they were partial removal we proposed to the united states articles of sanctions that impede the cereal and economy and the law of our people so with conflicting information about what
3:16 pm
actually took place at the meeting between the two leaders we've now got the u.s. state department issuing an explanation of the explanation after the talks flopped in hanoi trying to jumped on a plane to alaska it was certainly not singing a song of peace as he praised the troops america does not see conflict but if we are forced to defenders we will fight and we will win in an overwhelming fashion you are a powerful warning to the world to never strike american soil you are a warning that everybody knows about it nobody wants to play with you would think that with the utter trainwreck that was the talks with pyongyang that donald trump would be cruising for a bruising when he got back to the united states however that doesn't seem to be the case the epic failure seems to have been met with pretty broad approval both democrats and republicans seemed rather chipper about it it's a good idea to try to. get not get him anything was
3:17 pm
a little bit that he was proposing the north koreans walk away thinking you know they've got they've won and gradually they will see their sanctions regime begin to erode then they've won and frankly that would be unfortunate i was smart to expose the north korean delegation to the god of our economic prosperity that could be possible it's a good thing that he walked away rather than agreeing to something that was badly flawed democratic presidential candidate tossing gabbert seem to stand alone invoicing disappointment kim jong un has clearly stated that he is holding on to these nuclear weapons as his only deterrent against the united states coming. and waging a regime change war in north korea so well you know i'm deeply concerned about the fact that this summit yesterday ended without an agreement it's not surprising because of this policy this regime change war policy might pompei o laid out the washington consensus with rather sharp terminology america has
3:18 pm
a responsibility to protect itself by pushing back against those evil nations and those evil leaders who intend to do real harm to the world yes much like george w. bush with his rhetoric about evil doers donald trump is not setting himself up to winning nobel peace prize any time soon but most of the political establishment that normally hates donald trump seems to think that that's a ok mop and artsy new york. political expose told us that the trumpet ministrations hawkish stands up a roading north korea's trusted white house promises. it was not no deal versus bad deal it was a missed opportunity and the real question remains whether what was it that caused president or chairman kim for that matter to stand up and walk away hour and a half early i think there's a crisis in confidence between north korea in the us you know kim knows what's
3:19 pm
going on in the world and he looks around and he sees unfortunately and depressingly the united states simply doesn't keep its word around the world trump is going to trying to show success. he and that i think was one of the considerations in the discussions in in vietnam over over north korea missiles the reality is is a trump is looking to make a deal and to show international success and to so that he can have something to come back to and to offset the turmoil the inter the political turmoil he's facing back home but if we've taken over isis in syria then the question remains what about the troops u.s. troops who are there in syria what will happen with them those are questions that remain unanswered. veering off script still in terms given a two hour speech at the conservative political action conference but it seems

3:22 pm
that nobody came in with a hawk nobody no white coat came in and sedated them and say would you lads when you were at least wait let the russian thing gome now i'm not trying to tell people what to do but one could argue that there are some things that president dr has said that might be garrulous a peak and controversial your might want to go there this is trump arrangement but here is a trump hyphen putin hyphen russia during obeys since this weird kind of a connection it's an obsession an obsessive compulsive. reaction that they can not let go we while the u.s. media continues to hunt for a link between the president and blood in the putin double terms disgraced former lawyer michael cohen failed to provide any evidence of pollution with russia when
3:23 pm
he testified before congress on wednesday members of the house accuse him of being a liar cohen previously pleaded guilty to lying to congress about trump's supposed connections to moscow this time though he pulled no punches when talking about his former boss. today i am here to tell the truth about. he is a racist. is a con man. and he's a cheat mr trump knew i was directed to trump moscow negotiations throughout the campaign and lied about it and i have never asked for nor would i. hard from president trump ladies and gentlemen how on earth is this witness credible he's a fake witness the presence here is a travesty and you have a history of lying over and over and over again he said we were in search of the truth i don't believe that michael coleman is capable of telling the truth he lied to congress through false statements and written statements he lied to congress
3:24 pm
through his testimony he didn't gamble to fight his false statements by releasing him refuting his lies to the public with. michael caine was a trump confidant for more than a decade after his moment in the spotlight to begin a three year prison sentence in the spring for tax and banking for old as well as lying to congress he discussed his testimony with former us republican congressman michael popped all at the silly season and in the silly season silly things happen this is a little early. something that you'd see in the silly season cohen is willing to use the word racist and criminal and liar and anyone who's willing to speak in that absolute in that strongest terms in washington will always have an audience on one side or the other there was just an angry man who wanted to be chief of staff who didn't get to be chief of staff who was furious he couldn't make a ton of money off the trump name after trump was elected president has decided
3:25 pm
