U.S. will defend troops and interests after rocket attack in Iraq, Defense Secretary says

"Understand and respect the reservations that some of you have expressed about having another recently retired general at the head of the department of defense the safety and security of our democracy demands competent civilian control of our armed forces the subordination of military power to the civil. I spent my entire life. Committed to that principle. Retired general. Lloyd austin at his confirmation hearing to become the nation's first black defense secretary now on the job just over six weeks. We sat down to discuss the obstacles facing the military across the middle east the kovin pandemic and extremism within the ranks. But i began by asking him about his transition from army four star general to civilian chief of the armed forces lloyd illustrations years in uniform stretched from the halls of west. Point to the battlefields of iraq. Where i shed a ride out of baghdad with him back in twenty eleven. How does your combat experience your forty one years in uniform guide you now as a civilian leader you certainly come into the position With a great appreciation for the complexities of combat and you also have an appreciation for the impact that combat has not only on the country that you're fighting in but also on the resources of the country set are actually fighting. We wanna lead with diplomacy in every case but if deterrence fails and you must fight you fight to win and so you wanna make sure that that your your troops are properly resource properly trained and focus the right way so that they can not only win but when decisively during his forty one years in the army it was not just combat that tested austin. He broke through many racial barriers. Along the way. I can remember going to a bus station with my mother and looking at the restrooms that were male female in colored. That's kind of how we started. How i started as a child and to rise to To be able to rise to position of secretary of defense in my lifetime is quite incredible. But you have to ask yourself you know why it took so long to have an african american secretary of defense. What we wanna make sure happens going forward is that i am not the last african american secretary of defense that we create those opportunities in our ranks for african americans and hispanics to rise to the very highest ranks in our military and to that end. Battling extremism is high on his agenda. I wanna turn to to january. Sixth more than forty veterans have been arrested from that day. You have asked for one day standdown for everyone to talk about extremism. What are you hearing in terms of extremism in the ranks. I just got an initial brief bag from From our service secretaries on on how they're conducting the stand down they're all going about it in a in a bit of a different way as you would expect great initiative They're all doing great work. They're having some really in depth conversations with their troops on On values on the oath that we took on the importance of unit cohesion. This is not about You know political parties or political political beliefs. This is behavior that can really tear at the fabric of our institution And so we want to make sure that our troops are reminded of of what our values are reminded of the oath that we took coming in and and my belief my strong belief martha is at ninety nine point nine percent of our troops embrace those values and are focused on the right things and are doing the right things each and every day and want him move to iraq. This week we saw a second significant attack with those ten rockets. Do you know who did it. And what kind of responses might we expect. We're still developing the intelligence. They're encouraging the iraqis to move as fast as i can to investigate the incident and they are doing that but you can expect that we will always hold people accountable for their acts. We wanna make sure that Again we understand. Who's responsible for this The message to those that that would carry out such a such an attack. Is that you know. Expect us to do necessary to defend ourselves. We'll strike if that's what we think we need to do. At a time and place of our own choosing we demand the right to protect our troops has iran been given the message that this is not an escalation when we retaliate. iran is Is fully capable of assessing You know the strike and and our activities and draw their own conclusions but what they should draw from. This again is that we're going to defend our troops and are responsible be thoughtful. It will be appropriate. We would hope that they would choose to do the right things

"Mike the Iraqis working everyone in the Obama Administration and even in Congress to get this accomplished in a cable dated January Eighth Ford said Ambassador Christopher Hill explained to attorney general holder.

He again stressed the importance of an appeal and again mentioned that a blackwater employee had killed his bodyguard for its cables. One that the Iraqis were looking for political cover and believed that judge. Urbina. Decision would inevitably harm. US Iraqi relations. But as we learned, it was a lot more complicated than needing to look tough against the American occupiers for your constituents. Gina. During our research, I read a fascinating book by Emma skied. She's a WHO, loudly protested the war. She was right there marching up in front and London. But she eventually went on to play a key role in the American war effort. She served as a key advisor to general break, Odierno, and the Coalition Provisional Authority. Skyros of the relationship between the two countries was about to come undone any way, and for reasons that had nothing to do with Raven to three. Here's the guy giving a lecture at Yale University in two, thousand and fifteen. In during the surge, the level of violence Iraq decreased dramatically. And, we Iraqis for the country's on the right track is going to go in the right direction. In twenty ten, the national elections were held. High Participation. On the results were very, very close, very, very close contested results. Unfortunately the US didn't. The rights of the winning block to have I, go trying to form the government as instead the government insists instead the US government insisted on keeping the incumbent Noel Malachy in power, and why did they do that? Do you think? I think because it had paid the easiest. Obama had campaigned to end the Iraq war. Seemed easier to keep the incumbent, rather than trying to help a new government be formed with a new leader unfortunately malachy then went on to follow very sectarian policies. Alienated the Sunni population, there were widespread protests and the Islamic state loosed power. Keep in mind Emma Sky saying here. It's outrageous. The US government suppressed the will of the Iraqi people. To keep. Malecki. In power two, thousand ten. Just because it was the easiest option to keep our troops and security contractors from getting kicked out of Iraq. We did a deal with the devil. Granted. It was the devil that we knew, but the price was the lives and freedom of for American veterans. So. Who was Malecki and why one American Selena Iraq. So badly if we were supporting his regime. And why are we bending over backwards? To satisfy him. Let's take that first question. President George W, Bush had to overlook quite a track record of anti-americanism when he chose Nouri Al Malecki to lead post occupation Iraq, Malecki, had spent the previous three decades in exile in Iran and Syria Malecki lead the Islamic Dowa parties, covert operations mainly against Saddam? Hussein's government those activities included attacks directed by his Iranian government sponsors and they included the bombings of the US and French embassies in Kuwait in one, thousand, nine, hundred, three. NFL Qambar was the head of the Iraq National Congress. That's the main opposition to Saddam Hussein. In Washington DC. He served as a member of Paul, Bremmer Governing Council in Iraq and as the deputy military attache in Washington in the post Saddam. Iraqi. Government entity was the spokesman for the Deputy Prime Minister and Advisor for National Security. Issues. For the deputy head of the Iraq parliament. So what I'm saying here is and defied has a deep knowledge of this puzzling decision. Here he explains how Bush an ambassador Zalmay, Khalilzad put Malecki and power, and why Obama and Biden kept him there. was appointed by the US embassy. Baghdad. He was He didn't know he was going to be a prime minister. They call them at night and he called him. Come in. And they're not stable. They told him you making the prime. minister. He's Sporting.

What Bush was any of that Indian and he was kind of not open. The door wide open for them. The only difference. Obama. Open the door white for them. Because Obama, he does that they and would be difficult for the public. Because he was done you.

In fact, he boasted to die his deep understanding of the Iraqi people in the centuries of conflict in the middle. East. Needless to say Skye was a bit underwhelmed and unimpressed. With Joe. Biden, she saw his view rather simplistic. But the question remains. Why Would Malik run our troops and contractors out of Iraq? If we were protecting his regime, the best answer and the one we found most often. was articulated by Ali Canary who advised five US ambassador's was the longest serving American in Iraq. He was one of the advisers who begged. To replace Malecki with a leader who wasn't so anti Suny. And so cozy with. Iran.

"So is there from the streets of Baghdad what's particularly interesting is the perspective of the country's young generation generations at those born in the late nineties and early two thousands who make up a fair chunk of the crowd out on the streets typically there a group that has experienced a huge amount of upheaval during their upbringing the two thousand and three Iraq war and often office meant that they have lived through multiple phases of violence high youth unemployment and widespread corruption what I do know a former BBC Baghdad correspondent is someone familiar with young Iraqis grievances he's been covering the protests in Baghdad and speaking of young people that to try and build a clear picture and joins me now I'm aware that about some of these young people entering the kinds of things they've been saying to you I think the key thing to remember about this generation of people who are out on the streets protesting is that they're not tied down by the divisions and grievances of the pasta made most of those around on the streets and that tens of thousands of at the peak of these protests I mean not just Baghdad but many of the cities around the country take in the south and they they were either not born at the time of the US invasion all they were just toddlers and so all of the kind of the the the the the the the fighting the battles that have gone on since their two thousand three invasion don't mean anything to them and people I was talking to a sable they've lost about Saddam Hussein I don't care about Saddam Hussein I don't care what my parents told about Saddam Hussein because he's no longer relevant and and they they have simply had enough with the the the the new order that is taken to this taken hold but is in power as a result of the US invasion of bots having said that just like many other parts of the world to corona viruses now having its effect that and I think increasingly it's looking like these protests are going to subside because of the threat of the virus which is the rising cases in Iraq in the short term one imagines that will be the case but in the longer term I mean some of the the issues that they also exercised about I'm not gonna go away I'm certainly not in the trunks are very possibly they can get worse because the the the rocky government relies overwhelmingly on oil for its for its revenues and of course if one knows the fuel prices plummeted dramatically in the last week or so they said that he's going to be have a knock on effect in terms of making all these problems worse unemployment it'll also probably make the government's that that the protest is a trying to replace its going to make them actually to get even more and so I mean this has been an astonishingly violent protests I mean that's the thing that's it that's it they've been going since October now Mr around six hundred people have been killed instilled expects stuck it out because that because the government has been so determined not to not to get in but you know now the stakes are even higher and you could see even more violence and even more deterioration in Iraq and what about Sunni versus Shia the country's often seen within those parameters perhaps more by people outside than inside what are these young people say on that subject we see that that that's another sign that you've got this sort of the the contrast between the generations because when I was that recently talking to protesters are they on this is a cross sectarian protester hello adult of the time because the people who were there not worrying about whether you will see whether the people around them a Sunni or Shia that is that parents that their parents divisions that's the way they see it bots of course it is still the sheer leads governments in in Baghdad that is in controlling the scene seeing things to some extent through that person because the sheer with a major I feel we have lost Andrew at that point but I think you've had a affair flavor from him of those protests in Baghdad and the views of the young people that he's been speaking to in Iraq in the last few months nearly twenty four minutes past the hour let's turn our attention to the world of sports coronavirus again this the spread of aids led to the cancellation of almost all of the big sporting events due to take place this weekend Alastair Ross

US Embassy was fast-moving required some quick decisions from the Pentagon and from President Trump. But that was not the only headline commanding the president's residents attention over the New Year's holiday. ABC's Cure Phillips was there with the president as he marked the New Year with guests at his mar-a-lago resort actually had kind of red carpet setup. Kiro was right there and Kira. He's also hearing new threats from North Korea right so all of a sudden things on his plate. How is he responding? Well exactly I mean here. He was celebrating grading his big New Year's Eve party right this flashy soiree and mar-a-lago and then he wakes up to a new year an election year with foreign policy issues. It's sort sort of like. Okay here's my New Year. WAKEUP call you mentioned Iran and what happened there in Iraq With the American Embassy will now Kim Jong Hoon is is warning that North Korea could reveal a new strategic weapon. Kim Jong Hoon promising a new strategic weapon threatening shocking action saying his country could end the moratorium on missile and nuclear weapons testing that is basically code for. Hey I'm testing an intercontinental missile. That could theoretically they deliver a nuclear warhead to the US. I have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un. I know he's sending out certain messages about Christmas presents and I hope this Christmas present is a beautiful vase. That's what I'd Light Cabanas. As opposed to something else now look we have been covering the story of North Korea for a really long time and every year There is usually a threat like this that comes to North Korea. But as we hear this Sir I mean we have watched the sort of diplomatic love affair between the President and Kim Jong UN number one sentence denuclearization that was done in Singapore Singapore. And I think he's a man of his word so we're GONNA find out but I think he's a man of his word and obviously with this new threat in the New Year That could impact that relationship Brad. Well obviously you know the president's got those foreign issues he's also got domestic things on his table including you gotta think impeachment and the impeachment trial coming up and I feel like for the last. Few Months Rudy. Giuliani was kind of he who should not be named by the White House since he started so much of this and and yet they're he was right in front of you at the president's winter residence. act to tell you something there. You never know what you're going to get from from Rudy. Giuliani and I will tell you when he does decide to talk to you. It is always extremely colorful so there he was coming into the red carpet. I called him over and I asked him. Hey what do you think about this impeachment trials. The president wants you to testify in the trial. Would you testify in the trial. I would testify. I would Due demonstrations I'd give lectures that. Give some Asians or I do what I do best. I tried the case and then he walks off it really care. It doesn't matter as far as I'm concerned I'd be very happy with the trial because we did nothing wrong and I tried to ask the president about that when he came onto the red carpet but he would only take a few questions. He did talk about Iran. He did talk about impeachment But didn't have a comment about rudy. Giuliani saying hey. He'd love to testify. I can't really imagine Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell actually wanting Giuliani within a fifty mile radius of the Capitol as goes down but there are still questions about whether there will will be witnesses at all. Republican Senators Susan Collins from Maine said they would like witnesses. They've criticized McConnell for coordinating with the White House as they plan all this cure Phillips Silken of the Florida Sunshine see what clouds around the corner. Thanks so much you got it. mm-hmm a lot of new rules went into effect on January first because they were scheduled that way for a long time. Well this past New Year's Eve we learned a new national policy on vaping is set to take effect early in the New Year and this was not part of some longstanding plan. This new enforcement action from the Food and Drug Administration will suddenly ban pretty much every flavored. VAPE POD on the market setting off yet another scramble for this industry to start twenty twenty. ABC Stephanie Ebbs Covers Federal Agencies. She's been on the vaping vaping beat for months now and some Stephanie. These changes were first reported by the Wall Street Journal. How're the expected to work? Well by the president confirmed on New Year's Eve that the administration situation plans to roll out this new policy. It's very different looking than what they originally started talking about. In September when the president and the Secretary of Health and Human Services wanted this strong ban to stop kids from accessing these these vaping in nicotine products. We'll take take it off the flavors for time certain certain flavors We're GONNA protect our families. We're GONNA protect our children and we're going to protect the industry know what they're talking about now can split hairs a little. They're talking about banning flavored vape pods for those jewel like devices that look like a USB but not e liquids that are seen as is more popular among adults in Houston those older vaping devices. There's little canisters with like the jail that you can get into swapping out. Yeah exactly if you've ever seen a vape show show or adults with the kind of more bulky square looking devices that's an e liquid. They're sold in adult only shop so by the administration will likely argue especially with the tobacco age going up later this year. It's not as important to focus on those as those one time use pods that are really popular among teens but essentially every flavor that goes out the door certain ones that stay. It's pretty much every flavor with a big caveat that they are allowing menthol and tobacco oh flavored pods to stay on the market. We want the tobacco flavored. E cigarettes to remain available for adults who may be using e cigarettes to be off of combustible tobacco Baco they would be banning mint which is one of the most popular flavors of course mint and Menthol are very similar. So there's some concern that the most products could be basically basically relabeled and sold as Menthol and it's important to note that the most popular company with the largest market share jewel has already pulled a lot of their sweet flavors members from the market. So it is a big impact of pulling these these flavored products like fruits mango pineapple. But it's kind of unclear how. How big of an impact or how lasting everything safe? They're going to be going very quickly back onto the market so the flavors will come off. They're going to be checked. The president has said had that this will just be temporary as the FDA reviews applications to allow them to be sold again. And so the last time you and I talked about this Stephanie. Speaking of the president he kind of backed off of of a very similar proposal or wider-ranging proposal. I suppose I presume you kind of have to sign off on this his administration. What changed his mind? Oh absolutely so. When they first announced a full ban of every flavored vaping product there was immediate reaction from the pro vaping community? It is are largely adults that acknowledged that nicotine is a big problem but they also say that fourteen year had it using flavor paddock's you know having this as an alternative to traditional cigarettes is better for adults. FDA hasn't definitively ruled on the health impacts yet because these products haven't been around as long as combustible testable cigarettes and one other thing that Brad is at the president reference. A lot of people dying from vaping people have died from this. They died from vaping. We think we understand. Why more than two thousand four hundred people have been hospitalized with vaping related lung injuries according to the CDC today that's presumably a reference to the vaping related illnesses and lung injuries that the Center for Disease Control has been tracking now? US Health officials are describing their latest findings as a breakthrough suggesting vitamin E acetate may be the culprit the CDC says that those injuries and illnesses are primarily attributed to illicit or illegal thc containing they products not nicotine and tobacco. There is an adultery substance in there. That's very hazardous for the lungs. So the change we're talking about. Today is more about addiction and keeping teens off tobacco than reducing the rest of those injuries from illicit products and in fact outside of mar-a-lago yesterday you had signs reading strawberry. Kiwi saved my life and no government. You can't hit hit my jewel though the president's apparent sympathy for the industry that you heard there it's also angered a lot of health groups across the country. Stephanie APPs thank you thanks bad happened here last thing. We talked about some of the strange rules of international diplomacy earlier. Will they do not they get the cover escape story.

"Good evening the. US Embassy in Tehran invaded and occupied Iranian students. Americans inside have been taken prisoner. His new and according to a student spokesman will be held as hostages. You might remember the Iranian Revolution back in the day when protesters stormed our embassy in Tehran. Are People were. We're trying to burn documents if they could escape eventually. Iranians got in and took American hostages but over the last forty eight hours. Another crowd gathered around the. US Embassy. See Things got scary a lot of these crowds. They started protesting outside the embassy and managed to get right up close to the building surrounding owning it. This time it back they heard shouting down down. USA just outside the embassy got so serious that president trump authorized the deployment of nearly a thousand troops to defend the place and while Baghdad is the capital of Iraq. This had everything to do with Iran next door. ABC's foreign correspondent. James Longman joins us. Now he spent a Lotta time near that that embassy and so james how to control. Did this get. I mean absolutely extraordinarily out of control. I mean almost unprecedented absolutely amazing that these these protesters were able to get anywhere close to what is supposed to be one of the most secure embassies in the world if not the most secure the days of rage outside this building ties fund fires lit. US troops having to shoot take asked to disperse these protesters. The crowds are able to climb the smash down the reception area in some pictures console at security personnel. Having to hunker down inside pictures absolutely incredible. They go well beyond the stuff that you normally see. If people burning American flags though we've seen not to and president trump pat to send in something like seven hundred fifty soldiers from the eighty second airborne division which is based in Fort Bragg. Now it's on top of more than one hundred marines that when flown in to bolster the marines are already there so this has gotten wildly out of control. We think things die down for the moment but certainly totally unprecedented. And so James you say how did this start. How did this get so big so quick? Yes so on Friday. We gotTA rewind slightly to Friday of last week when in the north of Iraq. About thirty rockets rockets were fired at a base in cook where Americans work and one contractor was killed there. The Americans identified. This group is KC has bullets in Iranian backed lacked militia group working in Iraq. A department defense took offensive actions in defense of our personnel and interests in Iraq. And so as a result over the weekend They the Americans deployed F. Fifteens to hit their basis in both Iraq and in Syria strikes were successful volt. Twenty five of their fighters were killed and many more injured and so that group then held funerals in Baghdad For these fighters autism off to the funerals. They came to the embassy to attack the country. They held responsible for the deaths of of their fighters. So all this kind of happened as a result of that first attack last Friday. I don't think anybody thought it was going to get a serious this. Because what we've seemed to have witnessed witnessed is effectively the tacit approval of the Iraqi authorities allowing this group to get so close and it goes to the heart of the issue so entrenched inched is Iran in Iraq's politics that basically the Iraqi security services two to one side the way I'm confused James because when when I think about Iraq and Iran traditionally those two sides do not get along we were bombing what we thought were Iranian sponsored terror groups why would Iraqis be protesting protesting with Iran against the US in Baghdad. Well you've got to think of it. Less as Iraq versus Iran and more as Sunni versus Shia Shia when Saddam Hussein a Sunni was removed. It basically empowered. The Shia who found allies in the massive shear power is Iran right next door and basically ever the since his removal the Iranians have entrenched themselves in every Paul toll of Iraqi politics. Most of the Iraqi cabinet has has links to Iran the military leadership for months Iran and Israel. They've been fighting something of a shadow war inside Syria but Israel says this is the first time Iran which has sent thousands of troops to Syria to prop up the regime of Bashar. al-Assad has directly attacked across that border. This is a country Iran which works to weaken the the power structures of its neighbors in order to gain power there. It's not just in Iraq. So that is what this is about. And so when you look at the Iran on strength in the Middle East then you've only got to think that hostilities are only going to get worse as this New Year progresses. So what we're supposed to be these targeted tit. For TAT attacks attacks on Iranian sponsored terror groups now becomes a firestorm literal firestorm in the center of Baghdad on American turf. James Longman thank you thanks. James brought up the stakes there. I want to dive deeper into that with Colonel Steven Gerrard formerly of the Marine Corps and of the State Department now he's ABC News contributor attributed and so colonel gathered. I've seen the movie argo. Are we in a place where embassy in Baghdad is now just going to be the site of Iranian based protest test in Iranian beast attacks obviously the. US quickly quickly gets concerned about another Tehran. Or another Benghazi. Good Morning I'm George Stephanopoulos and we were coming on the here because we have just learned that the US ambassador to Libya has been killed. It happened overnight when angry militants stormed the US consulate in Benghazi Libya. They fired shots at the building on fire. But this is quite different. This is in Iraq. Iraq is Is a country that needs the US to be there. does not WANNA have the US lead Does not want to be seen as has being the puppet of Tehran so if they had allowed the Iranian backed protesters into the US embassy. That would have been Even bigger political problem vested political problem. I think it all comes back to the point here. Brad is this is all about domestic Iraqi politics and it really isn't about the US. Iran attempting to deflect all the anger occur within the Iraqi people towards the US and away from Iran security forces. Police and the army have been firing live rounds at protested protesters' as volleys of tegas protests. All around Iraq now and these have not been about the. US has been about the Iraqi government and when people showed up to protest that they shot. Right I mean we've seen hundreds of people now killed. According to reports because these protests we did not see that kind of reaction from the Iraqi police these last few days I mean why why. Why the devil? Yeah it's actually it's actually It's almost humorous if you look at the way that the Iraqi police stepped aside and allowed the Iraqi protesters to come in towards the compound. This was fully coordinated with the government. The government In Iraq had to do something thing to appease their masters in Tehran appease the protesters two peas those on the political side. They need so. This was all quite carefully staged and they gave limits. This is why you didn't you see any of the Iraqis tried to go into the compound itself This this was this was staged as a Hollywood set. And so the idea of letting civilians blow off steam also not getting too entangled with Iran and meanwhile president trump saying. It'd be bad free Ron to mess with us. We'll see what happens next even gang. Your thank you. Thanks.

"Outside of our embassy in Baghdad this is orchestrated by the Iranian regime these are the kinds of tactics that they use forty years ago they stormed our embassy and then here we are forty years later and they're directing these terrorist groups to then attack our embassy so the president took very decisive action and put in place the necessary forced protections and for our people our diplomats and our and our embassy it was the right thing to do and today the situation is much better how concerned are you about the relationship between Iraq Iran in this situation well the we've seen recent protests in Iraq against the Iranian domination in Baghdad so we have seen thousands of of Iraqis rise up against money in domination Iran has been running an expansionist foreign policy for some time president trump is standing up to that and the regime is not used to being told no but for the last three years we put in place the kind of sanctions and other deterrent measures that have weaken the regime and we can that's proxies so the regime does not enjoy the support of the Iraqi people you had a handful of terrorists who were at our embassy yesterday but that does not represent the views of the Iraqi people who want Iran out now while hook was diplomatic about Iraq's responsibility GOP congressman mark green told fox news he thinks it's a bad idea to pull troops out of the Middle East right now because Iraq has not stepped up to the plate I think it's proof that this president you know who uses a very proportional measured response when he's confronted with these kinds of situations if you look at the drone attack when they shot down our drone he essentially refused to do a Connecticut strike been and and used a basically a computer virus to destroy their their missile launchers and then they attack us we had eleven rocket attacks against American forces inside Iraq in the in the region and we responded with five attacks on their campus now they're escalating it even more and and has been said many times this is organized by the I. R. G. C. supported Hezbollah militia there were uniforms in the crowd yesterday from the images that I saw flags of those units this is an orchestrated terrorist event and you know the president is right he's not going to allow another big guys especially not now I mean it would clearly be interpreted by Iran as appeasement as running away just as we did you know after small yeah I mention small yet but you know Bill Clinton basically pulled all our forces out as soon as we got a black eye and that empowered bin laden to say these Americans will stick and fight so we cannot do that especially now we've got to stay what we need is Iraq to step up and be the allies that we certainly treated them you know they were invaded by ISIS and we came back and basically liberated them from ISIS so they need to do their job to protect our forces in our assets in our embassy now hundreds of militiamen and supporters attacked the embassy on Tuesday protecting our pro testing I should say airstrikes against an Iranian backed militia that killed twenty five fighters the U. S. says that Malaysia is responsible for a rocket attack on an Iraqi military base that killed a US contractor here at home the market will start the new year with new highs when trading resumes but can the bowl run continue well into twenty twenty well White House adviser Peter Navarro says he sees a continued expansion despite record deficits and an inability to rein in spending well well pet lectures do have consequences Joe and and when we did negotiate that appropriations bill we had to deal with the democratic house and that led to a lot more spending that we otherwise war they had but you know I think I think twenty twenty here's here's the difference between by Donald J. trump and maybe the old roaring twenties what what trump is designed to turn the Republican Party into the party of the working class what he's brought about is a structural revolution that continues in terms of restructuring our economy going back to the future manufacturing we have a strong defense industrial base we have a trade policy based on America's first and not having the U. S. treated as a piggy bank yeah we got a half a trillion dollars a trade deficit to get down we do that that's going to be a growth machine so structure way we're gonna be sound through through the twenties and a again it's it's all good and it's it's a strategy Joe that dates back and not just to that day after the election you and I sat together and make that prediction but throughout the campaign this economy stems from the DNA of the trump campaign it goes back to the seven jobs plan promises in June of twenty sixteen and those four points in the economic compass the S. and P. five hundred finishing in the year up twenty nine percent that was the best showing since twenty thirteen the Dow at a twenty two percent and the nasdaq advanced thirty five percent of people judges camps as he raised more than twenty four point seven million in the last three months he now has a staff of five hundred people nationwide is campaign said Wednesday raised seventy six million since he launched his bid including more than two million contributions from over seven hundred thirty three thousand people that potentially places the south bend mayor above many of his democratic rivals including Joe Biden it does not put him above Bernie Sanders more on that in a moment now former Hillary Clinton adviser Philippe Reines told MSNBC although Biden's poll numbers remain strong Biden has a cash flow.

"Protesters smashed down a door and set fires. The State Department says the embassy itself was not breached and has not been evacuated. Washington Washington is blaming Iran for the protest. Wait Iran. But we're talking about Iraq. It's all really confusing. Said help explain. I'm joined by the world's Chris Wolf Chris. Who are these protesters well cow pictures? Show and witnesses say that these are mostly men who belong to a pro Iranian militia group called Qatar Hezbollah most not carrying carrying weapons but many all wearing those uniforms of that organization and carrying their flags. This is the same group. Carol that was bombed by the. US Air Force on Sunday and the same group that allegedly attacked the US base near Kirkuk on Friday killing a US contractor so just to recap events wise we had Friday the attack on the US base. which killed an American Eric on Sunday the US retaliates there s strikes and then today we have the assault on the embassy compound so going back to that Friday attack at the US base? Why would this this Iraqi militia group that is loyal to Iran attack a US base We don't know for sure but there have been dozens of similar attacks over the past few months against. US targets in Iraq. Not as big as this. which involved thirty rockets that the? US government says the attacks are being directed by Iran. Iraq's big neighbor to the east Iran's and going broke under the pressure of the global use embargo on oil sales Trump's maximum pressure campaign. And it's been trying to find ways to put pressure back on on the US to relax those sanctions and one of the ways it's using is to have its friends around the Middle East region Goff. US targets Oh so real proxy anything Iran using a militia group in Iraq to go after US interest there too in some roundabout way pressure the US to lift sanctions or to who deal with Iran. Right yes so indirect pressure campaign okay. Another question is why are there even any armed militias roaming around freely in Iraq at this point yeah let alone once controlled by a foreign country like Iran. We have to go back to two thousand fourteen. That's when Isis the Islamic state movement annihilated one third of the the Iraqi army in a single battle so the Baghdad government appealed to the masses of Iraqis to help defend the capital and hundreds of thousands of people formed these ad hoc walk militias and they did play a critical role in the fight against Isis. But these are not just like well armed neighborhood watches. Many were formed by political groups. Many were sponsored armed and trained by Iran so this was tolerated by the US in Baghdad because of the emergency need to to fight Isis but they would never D- mobilized is Georgia's armed so the events this week they show a real anger at the US by Iraqis. What's at the root of that well? Let's be clear. There is no single Iraqi Iraqi point of view rather Iraqis a complex mosaic of regional ethnic religious and political interests. So it's difficult to generalize but historically many dislike the fact act of US conquest and occupation from two thousand and three but the specific complaint. Today is that the. US is attacking bombing this pro-iranian militia. This is is the first time that the. US has taken this direct kind of military action in Iraq against any target other than Isis for almost a decade and many Iraqi see it as an affront to the country's sovereignty and the pride but we must remember that Iraqis are also plenty mad at Iranian influence to the been massive bloody demonstrations in Baghdad throughout throughout most of this year against corruption and Iranian influence. And those have been much bigger than demonstration today at the US embassy. The world's Chris Wolf thanks so much. You're welcome I'm Carol. It's already twenty twenty.
