In just a moment and democratic Senator from New Jersey Cory Booker today announcing his intention to run for the White House. President Trump held a meeting on human trafficking on the southern border this morning before sitting down with secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, this comes after Pompeo's announcement that the US would withdraw from a historic Cold War era, nuclear arms control treaty because of ongoing violations. Russia's violation puts millions of Europeans and Americans at greater risk. It aims to put the United States at a military disa-. Advantage ABC's. Andy Field has more on this and other stories is he joins us on the KOMO Newsline. Andy, do we know what some of the specific violations are according to the US.

Although Russia as yet to live they done these things. It doesn't pose an extraordinary sorts of United States, but it does violate the treaty. And that's why the president is doing this.

And it's hard to see how this doesn't happen here in Virginia. Especially Gillespie the Republican candidate who ran against him for governor is opposition party could have easily found just dug into a Roth northern old yearbooks because it was right there in the yearbook picture of him with other pictures of him during his medical school years and nineteen Eighty-four. It's really studying looks day and age that someone who's a public servant a doctor someone who served in the military. Head done this at some point. And no one had discovered this here. He says, quote the behaviors on keeping with.
