"The global public square welcome to all of you in the United States around the world. I'm Zaccaria and today on the show. Tony Blair and Condoleeza Rice will start with the former prime minister of the United Kingdom on the chaos caused by Brexit exit and Boris Johnson what really is going on and how would it and also what advice would he give to the meters of his Labor Party Condoleeza Rice the former secretary of state former national security adviser when and she said President Bush the world came together to tackle the terror threat after nine eleven now it is coming up how does rice rape president trump on his foreign policy but first here's my take as he moves onto his fourth national security adviser in less than three years. It's become clear that Donald Trump's foreign policy is in shambles. It has produced turmoil. Oh but achieved almost nothing despite all the boasts there are no new deals with China Iran North Korea the Taliban or between the Israelis he's in the Palestinians just uncertainty disappointment and lots of bruised feelings trump informed the world that he was a great deal maker yet other than minor changes to Nafta and the US Korean trade pact. He has achieved little. There are many reasons for this. The trump administration has been chaotic and undisciplined bringing the ethos of a mom and pop real estate shop to one of the world's largest and most complex institutions the United States federal government government the central problem however is that trump is a bad negotiator with both Kim Jong UN and the Taliban he gave away crucial leverage bridge right from the start the North Koreans have wanted one on one meetings with the US precedent for decades trump gave away that prize right away hoping hoping to charm came into giving up his nuclear weapons so far came one trump zero with Afghanistan trump excoriated created president Obama for announcing deadline for troop withdrawals and yet he's done something similar repeatedly announcing his eagerness to quit and then being surprised prized the Taliban sought to press its advantage considered trump's model on Ghanistan. He fired John Bolton apparently because bolden objected did to making a deal with the Taliban except that trump then cancelled talks with the Taliban if agreeing with Bolton anyway with Bolton gone trump it does have the opportunity to act on his instincts and get something a new Iran deal. Let's face it. His reimposition of sanctions on Iran has it's been surprisingly brutally effective but Iran is a proud ancient civilization and I can't regional power it will not simply surrender it might agree to a new deal one that achieves more than the Obama code but for this to work trump will have to overrule some of his most hawkish advisors and find a path to a real negotiation. The Iranians will likely sit down only if sanctions of suspended during the negotiations is there will want to describe any changes that are made as additional measures to implement the existing deal rather than a new deal. Whatever that's what diplomats therefore trump's go should be get the Iranians to agree to extend the time horizon of key parts of the deal by approximately five years. He will not be able to make much headway on Iran's ballistic missiles. Iran views them as its defense against the vast Saudi military on Iran's other regional activities its support for his ball for example it might well be willing to talk but trump will have to consider whether this would extend the negotiations into an interminable imitable conversation involving Israel and the Broader Middle East most important to get an Iran deal trump would have to work against his fundamental mental urge always to claim total victory. Maybe that works in business where there are single transactions though it may explain why so few businesspeople businesspeople ever do business with trump again anyway. Foreign Policy is not about solo transactions. It's about long term. Relationships both sides have their own domestic politics and constituencies each needs to be able to say it has achieved success if trump can stomach that he could could emerge with something rare in his tenure so far an actual foreign policy win for more go to CNN dot com slash read and read lead by Washington Post column this week and let's get started.

"Can't get a leg up china's going to lead when we talk about climate change china's going to lead will not until you can breathe in beijing and so i think we sometimes overstate some of this numb yes i would have stayed in the paris agreement i would have stayed in uh in the tpp but i don't see these as disasters for american foreign policy i will tell you that on the iran deal of while again uh perhaps just two to keep from having the trouble around decertification i might have said certify i didn't support that deal so i understand why the administration looking at it a new says we have a deal that uh yes it does some good things on the nuclear side but when you look at iran in the middle east when you look at the troublemaker that the iranian regime is whether it is in yemen or in syria when you look at the fact that that money that was unfrozen uh and by the way this is what the protesters in iran found out when that budget came out is going to help paul salamone and the cubs force in lebanon or in syria you ask yourself uh was given the given the nefarious intent of the regime there would it be better if they had nuclear weapons right now but i i will tell you i think that this is an opportunity for the europeans uh and us to say their way to improve the steel i would look hard at questions verification eide lockhart again at taking off uh restraints on weapons sales advanced conventional weapons sales on missile technology down the road i would look hard at whether we're just buying time at the expense of looking and seeing that we actually have a rainy and regime with better capability down the road uh rather than saying well we should just certified the deal in state with the deal as it is i do think that there is an opportunity for europe in the united states to look again and you know what the iranians have the same incentives.

"Well as as has but as were you our allies don't always agree on what we we pulled out in the bush administration of the kyoto accord you would've thought the world was indy actually it didn't the united states went on to do what the united states is going to do whether we're in the paris climate accord or not we are going to continue to lower our admissions we're going to continue particularly statebystate this is where federal is would you pull that are that i personally would not have pulled out of the agreed about the because i think it was not worth the trouble of pulling out but i will tell you that i don't think the paris accord pulling out of the paris accord woods the united states will walk away from its commitments which seems pretty david let's let's be fair the former secretary of state who helped to negotiate the tpp didn't defender than the election that tells you something about the politics of trade today and that goes back to the point that i made earlier when we're in a situation and in which you have an election and no major candidate i it whether it's the the democrat uh hillary clinton or the republican donald trump or bernie sanders there i figured i was stake well yeah i do too but i'm just saying this is not i i agree with what you're saying yeah i think that there's been a neglect of the impacts of globalization and until you deal with that you're going to have this kind of reactionary to it that said there are consequences to pulling out of that agreement what are going to be long as long standing eighty but when people say china is now going to take up the mantle of global leadership on fill in the blink free trade i say to them with the nationalist economic policies chinese half where their markets are still closed in large segments where if you talk to american ceos this days uh they favour their national champion sue.

"You see him speak out with all due respect uh david more strongly on iran than president obama did and so i think you will start to see that uh the understanding that our values and our interests are actually leaked uh will become more and more evident when you come to a saudi arabia you do have the beginnings of reform in saudi arabia i don't know where it's going to end up but i do know that when a regime i don't care if there are friends when a regime starts to educate women so that more than half of the students and university or women uh they're not going to sit there and not be able to drive they're not going to live with the world that they want stewart that their mothers new in saudi arabia and so i'm confident that actually uh we're going to see more reform in the middle east should lesage warned form person suit the foreign policies not much different uh we've withdrawn from a number of global agreements paris climate accord the trans pacific partnership which seems like a great boon to china which is moving into that vacuum uh the president has refused to certify the iran agreement all these things have separated us from our allies you right in your book when you lose if you lose britain euroloan well we've lost britain in many instances here we've been on the we've been rebuked by our friends and our allies many times and feels like those global alliances aren't what they were all i finished second stats us where our allies beep beep test for what we did as.

"About enemies are adversaries absolutely i would hope that that begins to translate into understanding that democracy is in and of itself a stabilizing force that yes it is true that you deal with uh friends and allies differently when we were dealing with the egyptians for instance i'll give you an example i gave a speech in cairo remain in two thousand five calling right there in egypt calling on the egyptians to lead the middle east toward democracy yes it was aimed at uh hosni mubarak and i still believe to this day had hose mubarak mubarak made some of the changes that he started he would have had a gentler retirement than'regional on have echoed some of your themes of our years later but you know that when people come to say it come to you and say well how can you even deal with mubarak or how can you of and deal with the saudis you understand data's in fact as allies we do have to deal with regimes that don't have the democratic structures that we wish they do so that there is a difference you know uh this president went to saudi arabia and his message was quite different than your message his message was we're not gonna tell you how to live what to do what to believe and sawn he basically was saying and this is how it was interpreted and this is how it was celebrated in saudi arabia he basically was saying we're not gonna we're not going to advocate for human rights any more we're not going to play the role of met we're not going to do to you what condoleeza rice did what barack obama did we're not going to make those points this an early time steel for the administration and i just want to point out again and i'll come back to saudi arabia that is interesting things are happening in saudi arabia but this is a time when uh when you say to the president then on what basis to you criticise madero in venezuela well if you're just going to leave people to their own devices you have no reason to criticise added is doing and so you see him speak out actually quite strongly about venice.
