7:07 am
putin knows all eyes are on the united states. he has seenhe transatlantic divide and the trade war and trade problems between the u.s. and europe and so he sees a mvide. he als see an opportunity tofr divide the presiden his own administration. despite what we think the president's administration bas actualn pretty tough on russia. the question is can president putin begin to divide the president, divorce the president from his own administration and his administration's policies. >> we'll seehat happens on monday in lski. thanks for your perspective this morning. appreciate it. nowato an upd on the story that has had us on the edge of our seat for more ttwn o weeks. after an amazing rescue, the thai soccer team.
