8:11 am
m jong-un. they would come with conditions. he knows kim jong-un should know that he is not messing around. >> though he didn't spell out whathe conditions were. it does seem to be some what of a turnaround. they have required north korea to say they will give up their nuclear program before. we seem to be in a new phase. south korea wants to reduce tensions before the winter olympics next month. a significant decision to put off south korean-u.s. military exercises until after the olympics. there does appear to be some kind of reduction in tensions as we head into talks between south korea and north korea. >> except on the president's twitter feed.dinary yesterday. the president of the united defend his own sanity. in front of reporters and in front of the nation. this has now become a partisan issue with some democrats in congress introducing legislation

8:13 am
the 25th amendment. >> not even close. not anywhere close to that right now, no. >> the price tag of the wall is reportedly going to be $18 billion. the president says he's not going to extend daca unless democrats agree to the wall. so somewhat the luke likelihood that any of this gets done? >> and the clock is ticking. the government shutdown is approaching on january 19th. the democrats say they want daca included in any bill to keep open the government. i think the big question right now is, is a compromise possible with some kind of border security beef-up that the president can call a wall and the democrats will say is not a wall? i don't know the answer to that question right now. but i think that is what is at the heart of these negotiations. >> it's art of the deal time. thank you, george. >> thank you. george has a big show coming up. he'll go one on one with u.s. ambassador to the u.n. nikki haley. and senators sanders and cotton. >> plus the powerhouse "roundtable" breaks down the
