Listen: America, United States And Jake Tapper discussed on Joe Walsh
"Longer threatened by a row court, the international criminal court. That's my focus for this morning. What I hope we can talk about today. All right. Let me let me turn to that question. And then I'll come back to a couple of others that I have the international criminal court today said that they will not investigate the US for allegations of alleged war crimes and ghanistan. Amnesty International said this was a quote craven capitulation to Washington's bullying and threats and abandonment of the victims. Why do you disagree with Amnesty International? If somebody committed a war crime, why should they not be held responsible? I should note that this isn't just about Americans. It's also about Afghans as well. That's exactly right, Jake. It's about a much broader people. Let's let's be very clear that with respect to America in particular. We'd inside the treaty for the IC has no jurisdiction over our people spent trying to exert it. You know, this Jake as well as I do when Americans misbehave, whether it's our military intelligence officers. We have a robust democratic process that holds them accountable. You've seen to that for those that misbehaved there is no way any need for the ICT intervene. Frankly, this was this would have been a political effort to try and take on the people who were acting on behalf of the United States in ways that were completely consistent with our laws and try and hold them accountable ways. Completely inappropriate. I am very pleased that the icy made this decision today. It's the right one. No that Americans are found to have done things that are unlawful or against the laws of war. The US system will always hold them accountable. But the icy is not the right place to do it. We didn't. Sign up for that. And they had no authority over these people. I'm glad that they recognize that. And it's important for people understand the international criminal court on Friday rejected the move by one of its politicized. Prosecutors to try and charge Americans work rhymes. We are not a part of that trae we refuse to surrender jurisdiction over our soldiers, sailors, airmen, marine coast, not gonna do it wouldn't be prudent. The is she she has a limited role in my view to do things like go after the dictator Sudan who was overthrown last week. Not to invent another forum for anti American anti Israeli sentiment to rage. Among the hard left on the international scene. Can you play cut number sixteen for me, please cut number sixteen? Or did we same? I got it mixed up. Let's then go. They started talking about Latin America cut number thirteen. Number fourteen. I think that President Trump's decision makes perfect sense. We'll get this. Right. Jake. We're going to stop spending hundreds of millions of dollars of US taxpayer money's and ending up with the same result. We've ended up for for for too long. I think I think the data that you described proves this point it describes what we were doing simply didn't work. Well, the Dan is right. What you're doing doesn't work. You think you ought to think about another path forward you'd agree with that? Wouldn't you say I would for what I got from customs and border patrol folks border protection, folks, using sate department data was money went to El Salvador homicides went down by fifty percents and fewer migrants were coming from El Salvador. I take your point that not all the governments of the northern triangle countries are doing everything you want them to do. But it seems to me just based on your agency's data that you giving money to also alva- door was helping to reduce violence in that country and helping to reduce migrants coming from El Salvador to the United States. Take the American taxpayers have been enormously generous to each of those three countries for an awfully long time. We're prepared to continue to do that. But we've got to see things change. We've got to see reality real outcomes on the ground check. When we see that. I promise you Americans will continue to be jenner's will continue to make sense with how we spend our dollars. And we will get good outcomes. It's not it's not enough to spend money and have wishful thinking, President Trump understands that we need to see actual change actual outcomes when we see those when we see those nations engage in that kitties that were deuce the outflow of migration from their nations. The American people will continue to be incredibly generous. They always have been. The secretary of state was making the argument upping aid, which is always the reaction. The left doesn't necessarily do anything to stop the exodus towards the American border. And that President Trump has threatened to cut off aid to Nicaragua and L Salvador and Guatemala because they don't do enough in their own countries to stop this. And there are some metrics that they're going to measure and the secretary of state went further with Jake tapper about the president's use of every available means to stop the border crisis. Cut number fifteen."
