I thought it was a good thing. Then the professor center. Did you know those writers had a colonial mindset? They were Racists and bigots center subconsciously brainwashing you. It only got worse from there, as she realized that every one of her classes at the Ivy League school was infected with what she saw as anti American propaganda reminiscent of the sort she'd grown up with. This story is stunning. She's a North Korean defector from a sworn nuclear powered enemy, the United States, one of the worst human beings on planet Earth. Kim Jong UN Tubs.

Uk ambassador to north korea Let's start with an overview of how serious that nuclear threat is at the moment. John i understand that north korean leader kim jong has slowed down missile testing. Yes he has slowed it down. But i think that's lost because he believes that he's already got to lucy where he wants. He's also Put a halt to nuclear testing. But that too is because he claims he's now cost a workable nuclear warhead. I think the The big our outstanding issue is submarine launched missiles He's tested a couple But i suspect that Particularly if he doesn't get his own way with the united states we may see some further testing of those and they of course overcome all the problems and long range lamb business because you can simply tell your submarine to within short-range missile range. You're talking and off you go right. Well joe biden's recently reviewed his policy on north korea. What we know about that. Frankly not a great deal The announcement talked about it calibrated and practical approach. Which of course means really very little. There's been almost no detail released over the policy review.

"The severity of the so-called crime. And this is how North Korea keeps people from speaking out, because while you may be willing to criticize the regime and take the punishment from that as anybody going to be willing to risk their parents and their children future freedom as well. I mean generally the answer is no and defectors who have spoken to have said to me that in North Korea if you object to the system, you don't try to change it. You try to leave like that as the outlet for that you try to escape the. Pression rather than get rid of the repression is the structure to encourage people to spy are inform on their neighbors eb, -solutely anybody in North Korea could be an informant. And the way the whole system is structured is to create this so at a household level. There are neighborhood groups of about forty households always led by busybody middle aged woman, whose job, it is to keep tabs on everybody in her unit and is a joke and North Korea. That, that woman knows how many spoons you have in your kitchen like she knows so much about you and your life. She knows how many spoons are in your kitchen this that household SP of it. But then with an every workplace every school, every government department, there are also groupings there, where people are supposed to go and embark on self criticism sessions with a will criticize themselves for maybe not being a. Vow to Nuff, follow of Kim Jong UN or they will also be encouraged to read on other people this, so there is this real system set up to encourage people to tell on the people like that, and to win brownie points for doing so, but also the level of surveillance in terms of take -nology their cell phones now in North Korea, but this software in them to be able to keep tabs on what people are doing the hostess designed to spy on everybody at every ten and I was stunned by this fact every house has a radio on its wall. That can't be turned off or to another station. It's the government station. That's right. Yeah. The every house has the I've seen this radio and actually taking video of one time when I went into a showcase apartment, it spouts political propaganda all the time. The dial cannot be changed. The volume can be tuned, up and down, but never off. So there is really no escaping the system. Do we know the scale of, of labor camps, or reeducation centers, people have big there? We don't know for sure, but the estimates something between one hundred twenty thousand, maybe as many as a quarter of a million people are housed in these camps. We can save from satellite imagery, that they continue to exist. In fact, that they have been consolidated under Kim Jong UN's when you look from the sky, you can see the barracks, where people that kept you can often see the minds with people are forced to work next to the camp. So these camps still continue to exist. They are, you know, really, really cruel places where people are forced to work for hours on end with very, very little food. And with very little prospect of release. If you're in one of the most severe political prison camps. Kham John was clearly man, not to be trifled with. I mean, he can be ruthless and one of the most dramatic stories involves the murder in an airport of his half brother Kim Jong nam remind us of that. And tell us what was the point of this. Right. So it was February of two thousand seventeen and Kim Jong nam who had been living in kind of quasi exile. For a couple of decades, almost by that stage. He was standing there at a at the airport taken counter when he was suddenly attacked from behind by two young women who at a chemical weapon called VCX on his face..

We have the leverage to ensure that China adheres to the rules of the road stops manipulating their currency stuff onto markets, including bars in the United States, but going into loan right now is hurting the United States disproportionately anyone imagine that voice being president of the United States.

Guy is just not ready for primetime. So obvious by nudity problem just like shoot him away. That fella. Good folks, folks. And also those this audio about China. He's a what a slur in their China. What are you saying may be quiet because I he's a giant president has got to stop working blue. All right. What's next? Now. We've got to go to North Korea where there's two story. We've gotta go to North Korea. We have to because there's two big stories about it. Number one. We seized a North Korean ship. That was the big news last night. I'm sorry. Mr. It's like to reds with you. He's the giant. Say we seized a ship. That was transporting coal hotter ban right now. You you. We have all these restrictions in place. Where they they shouldn't be able to sell coal, and they do it under the radar by using some of these ships, and they pretend the ship all the logs and everything the ship is supposed to have something appropriate on it. But if you stop it, you find out that they're selling coal things are not supposed to be doing. So we've actually seen used that ship. What does it call it something like wisdom, the ghost wisdom or something like that somebody look it up? So we've got a strange name. But so that's a big deal that we've actually seized that ship courses comes in the wake of the their test-firing missiles all of a sudden now almost a ragged, man. I was Trump feel about Kim right now. Do you have nobody's happy about it? But we'll take a good look, and we'll see who will say the relationship continues. But we'll see what happens. I know. They wanna negotiate that talking about negotiating. But I don't think they're ready to negotiate this a side story here. That's on ABC news. Apparently. No when we walked from that lasts. Summit. And apparently there's a lot of demands that we could meet, but one of the smaller ones that was found Kim Jong UN wanted famous US basketball players as part of denuclearize. Apparently, not only Kim Jong UN. But the dad Kimmel Kim Jong Il an all confused kim-il-sung was the first one views autumn is the historian here. So I will you not hurt when it comes to Puerto Rico, North Korea autumn, Scott. Kim. Founded Kim was Kim Il Sung. Right. And then and then then then then his son was Kim Jong Il, Kim Jong Il. And now, we have Kim Jong UN. Kim jong. Okay. And the dad and the son not the founding Kim are big basketball fans. And it turns out in the story it find out that the dad Kimmel's, Kim Jong Il. Kim jong-il. He tried to convince Clinton to get Michael Jordan to come over there. They all love the bulls and Kim Jong and always wears a bull. So that's the whole Dennis Rodman thing.

"We know where your secret testing facilities. Are we know where everything is, you know, it's funny because when the when the two of them came out initially instead of that round table. Kim Jong UN look a little edgy. To me. The first time. I mean, he was smiling and everything like that. And it's almost as though he was in a position where he didn't want to be. And then I go back to the two or three days before the summit where he reportedly had a meeting with some Chinese officials and the reports coming back for that. The the red Chinese were telling Kim Jong UN look you play hardball here and push back as much as much as you can. And it it almost looked to me now in retrospect that Kim Jong UN and that initial appearance look like he won't. Wanted to do more. But couldn't because the what the rich because let's face it. The North Koreans. Don't do anything without the blessing of of red China calms. Yeah, you're right about that. President also said that Kim promised him. There would be no further testing. The fact is that he also said he's not going to do testing. And he said that recently, and he said it again to be just a little while ago. He doesn't wanna do testing. He's not going to do that. That's a big thing. No rockets. No anything. And I believe when he tells me that I will take him at his word. I think if there's any further testing that scuttles the next summit, and I don't think Kim Jong UN wants that the one thing that the president said, and I don't believe I believe the president. I don't believe Kim Jong on this has to do with Otto warmbier. I don't believe that he would have allowed that to happen. Just wasn't to his advantage to allow that to happen. Those prisons are rough rough places and bad things happened. But I really don't believe that. He was he I don't. I believe he knew about I don't think he's a person on the planet. That does not believe that Kim Jong didn't know about auto warmbier you have an American in custody. You're darn tooting. He knew now did he know what kind of torture kind of things were being performed on that I can't speak to. But this is a guy that executes his own family members. This is the guy that killed people with an anti aircraft gun in an execution. So I don't believe it for a second Frank that Kim Jong on did not know about the fate of Otto warmbier. I think what the what the Trump is doing is trying to maintain this relationship that he believes is a cordial one with Kim Jong UN, and even if it means that that he asked too tall a little white lie here that doesn't maybe wanna upset Kim Jong UN into to the point where he's going to be reluctant to pursue Andy. It's probably what he told the president. I didn't know anything about it. If I would have stopped it or would not have happened under my watch. But but again, we don't know you look at the pattern of what he has done the human rights violations. And now he is executed members of his own family. He's again any level of care compassion for auto warmbier. I'm sure that. Anything like that? He would have known about six forty five hundred WCBS, traffic.

"As his incentive, and there's a little bit of issue there. I think because you have this summit here in Vietnam. It's another communist country. It's one of the fastest growing economies in the world. This is a booming capital city, high end hotels and luxury shops and the residents essentially saying Aaron this could all be yours. If you give up your nuclear weapons a lot has to happen after that though economic reforms in North Korea that perhaps Kim Jong Hoon is not willing to do. Because it would mean he would have to give up that very tight control. He has over his country private property, private business foreign investment things like that. So while the president's using this as that drive to get him to work toward denuclearization experts told us it's unclear if Kim Jong UN would even accept that ABC's.

We've got ten year. Treasuries falling the tenure down eight thirty seconds yield right now two point six six percent s&p up appoint little change their up less than one tenth of one percent.

West Texas intermediate crude down one point one percent fifty to twelve a barrel. I'm Charlie Pellett. And that's a Bloomberg business flash. Thank you, Charlie. We're live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studio, President Trump is set to meet North Korea's Kim Jong UN in less than three weeks. So what's the biggest question hanging? Over the second summit. Why are they even having it? Joining us to tell us. Why is Larry Lieber Bloomberg news national security editor so Larry why a second summit? Well, I think to keep the momentum going and also because President Trump believes that diplomacy counts on him that he's a master negotiator. And he has to be there himself. That's not what traditionally would be advised. You usually have the sherpas of the experts to go she eighters and the foreign ministers negotiate when everything's ready for the ceremony, then the leaders way in that's not the Trump way to work. And it'll be another test of whether that makes a difference when they meet in Hanoi on the twenty seventh twenty eighth has any progress been made since the first summit as far as North Korea giving up nuclear weapons. Well, they continue which was the case before had not to test missiles or conduct nuclear underground tests or above ground. It's had been threatened at one point. So you have that continuation of them holding back. Some of the US is continuing to hold back not doing joint exercises with South Korea. But there hasn't been a fundamental step forward, the most important thing maybe that they are starting to talk to secretary Pompeii. Oh, but also to Stephen big in the former Ford Motor Company executive whose the official US on voi-. Now, they spurned in. They couldn't be bothered to talk within the essentially stood him up. But now they are engaging. And he predicts that there will be what he called concrete deliverables subsidiaries coming out of this summit. So that the both sides are sort of on the line for that. Now, what might those be those concrete deliverables? Do you have any idea? No, well, the one. The thing that the US head said was a first step. But soon was the first step was for North Korea to declare its weapons, it's inventory. So it would all be on the table. But also, the US intelligence agencies could see how honest they were big North Korea's position is if we do that then it's just a target list. The USO that's off the table. Whether they will make some more steps some more promises to hold back on the the uranium processing different locations or provide other assurances to the US. That's the question. They're side for the US side. The question is will they move toward some farmland some peace talks for the Korean war of one thousand nine hundred fifties. So we may see some back and forth. Those things that would keep the process going President Trump as you mentioned suspended major military drills with South Korea as part of the first summit is that ongoing. Or is that something he? Might renew again at the second summit. Well, I think it's something that he would continue his view. Those are those are sort of provocative warlike moves, which is the north greed position. That's a position that was quite upsetting to former Defense Secretary James Mattis, he's not there anymore. There is an argument in the Pentagon that you do need the practice together to to keep up your rowdiness. But I think there's every indication that the president's position for the time being we'll keep continue to be. Let's hold off of these exercises. And see if that produces the right atmosphere in these talks when Trump approached the first summit, he was very sort of laissez faire about it. He said I've been prepared for this. My whole life was one of the quotes is he approaching the second summit in the same way. Well, at least he is visibly publicly. You know, he tweeted on Friday, a one of these boosterish tweets, it's Kim Jong UN will become a great economic powerhouse his country will. And I have gotten to know him in fully understand how capable he is. So we still have this Trump idea that it's a personal relationship. They send each other these warm letters. But as I said, I think he is where aware he's briefed that there are real behind the scenes negotiations going on. So even if the bravado is it's a whole knee. It's all Donald Trump and Kim Jong sitting down behind the scenes, he's well aware that there are specific being associated. That's at least a step forward. When you look at the pictures of this is it more of a boost for Kim than it is for President Trump because he gets this boost in his global stature. Well, the President Trump gets to did sue boast at least for now that he's he's headed off what he says was about to be a war. But yes for Kim Jong UN he had he remains a pariah to the world on human rights on his new. Clear threat. And yet here we have a president praising him as a as a wonderful guy who will be a great economic powerhouse and the legitimacy that gives Kim around the world, but also internally to boast to his own people that the US president is paying tribute to me and my importance on the world stage. He's a winner on that already. So the real question is whether North Korea is actually prepared to give up its nuclear weapons and Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence told a Senate panel last month that Kim was unlikely to do that because he viewed nuclear arms as critical to regime survival is that not what the rest of the administration believes. Well, they believe there's some hope that they believe they have to try. But really, you know, President Trump went after briefly the intelligence agencies for saying, I think incorrectly that they disagreed with them on Iran is a threat that was. The North Korean comment was probably the most significant our intelligence agencies believe that that regime can't survive without its nuclear weapons, and they'd have to totally change their dealings with the world that also internally that's a pretty negative assessment. And it's one that's very much with that very much at odds with what the president is trying to do. All right. Thanks so much. Larry as always, that's Larry Lieber -ties. Bloomberg news national security editor coming up on Bloomberg politics, policy, power and law. Investors will be hoping that the US and China can put trade talks back on the road to a deal. After President Trump said, he's unlikely to meet president gee before a March first deadline that would avert.

"And the president is empowering. Much more confrontational scenario to unfold that will not help us with North Korea with the where in fact, this administration after all the bluster and show Intel this meeting, and Singapore has zero definition of where the weapons are with the north of how much weaponry they have of what they're doing today where we know from our intelligence community that North Korea's continuing to build weapons testings they need to right now, they're building. And so. That does not make the region of the world safer. Yeah. And on the North Korean point we did make concessions the meeting itself was a concession something that they've urine for a huge concession and the freezing of exercises with South Korea. Right. We made concessions. That's absolutely accurate. And by the way, Kim Jong UN's father and grandfather, Kim Jong Il, Kim Jong UN both of them desperately wanted to have a meeting with the president have a summit together and presidents, Republican and democrat alike, conservative liberal, like nurse said, no, we're not gonna do that. Until we have clarity about the direction. We're moving in. You know, I listen to you, and you talk about the sort of lack of sophistication of the president's foreign policy. But I I imagine calling it sophistication. I mean, that's one of those elite words that right where I'm going. Well, I'm not I don't believe it's a lack of. Sophistication lack basic knowledge. All right. It's very simple realities. His his supporters would say, you know, all you smart guys you've owed for the war in Iraq. No, I didn't when I voted for was a process that President George W Bush didn't follow I voted for series of promises. That empowered the president to leverage Saddam Hussein to let the inspectors in. And if he didn't we have the threat of force hanging over that. When we were told was they would exhaust the remedies of diplomacy. They would bring together legitimate coalition. They wouldn't go forward without legitimate. And they didn't do that. They broke you call this. The worst mistake of your was the worst voted turned out to be the worst vote. Absolutely. Because it empowered him to do something that where they didn't follow the things I said they were going to do. So yes, I regret that. But because you know, what people say is now were in your seventeen Afghanistan where you're what fifteen in. There's a difference. I mean.

"We we struggled for good thirty minutes. I would say to try and figure out something to talk about other than North Korea. But then we ultimately decided we still have to talk about North Korea, a whole bunch of great ideas. But they're all ideas that will be better next week. That's right. So that's why we gave you gave the listeners a little bit of a foreshadow is the right word for what's coming up next. Yeah. I think so just to. Just to apologize. Because really I think I'm tired of North Korea to heal and not tired of North Korea as a country. I am tired. Of being in the same deadlock. That we have been in since June, and that many of us predicted would occur from the get-go when this whole process started in March like I am tired of saying the same thing over and over again. I don't know. How do you feel Aaron? I mean is this just what like life dealing with like Middle Eastern. I are issues is like I mean a little bit. I mean, you just in the stasis. There's no real movement. The issues are the same. And the conundrums or at least fallacy in how the both sides are approaching this just don't seem to ever be reconciled. But I guess that's why they call it diplomacy. I guess, you know, for listeners every year, the leader of North Korea in this case, Kim Jong who in the last few years gives a speech on New Year's day, and that is the speech in which Kim Jong outlines the priorities for the coming year. And it's usually a very good indicator of what to expect. So in two thousand seventeen can made clear that they were going to do an ICBM test. And hey that happened and into eighteen can make clear that he was ready to talk and that there was going to be a newfound focus on the economy, and that they were gonna shift away from testing, which was very politically provocative to the mass production of these systems, which which they did. So we all kind of tuning in to see what two thousand nineteen holds. And it's worth talking about the speech in some detail because doing propaganda and Alice's is important. It's kind of big part of what we do. I know. Focus on the satellite images allot, but you know, reading with North Korean say is is as important. But you know, my main takeaway is it's not really anything different than what the North Koreans have been saying at lower and less authoritative levels since the fall. Yeah. I think the the. I mean, I is I read it. He seemed to be trying to strike a balance between. Continuing with some of the pledges. He made the two thousand eighteen propaganda speech. But also signaling some of his discontent about how the US has handled it side in these weird negotiations that are going on with the Trump administration. Right. And I think you know, the kind of. The important fact to keep in mind in interpreting what Kim Jong is saying is understanding where the North Koreans think the negotiations are at the moment, and that's hard to do because particularly people who are supportive of the president tend to misrepresent what happened at Singapore. And so then it becomes a kind of you know, I it becomes a partisan food fight. If you're trying to explain what the North Koreans thing happened because they think something very different happen. Right. Whereas Donald Trump. Continually says North Koreans agreed give up their nuclear weapons, which I don't think they did the North Korean certainly don't think they did..

"Who's used. It's a tiny last week Kim Jong UN released his new year message. What did we hear? And what did we say? Well, even visually. It was quite a contrast with previous speeches. So instead of seeing him standing up a podium we had him in this big raw the stately room. Overseeing of course, by pictures of his grandfather and father and his wearing this western suit. He's sitting in this leather armchair. And the impression you have is really much more of a leader who is part of the international realm. Somebody who's been out there has met a US president is in this world, and is really addressing a message as much to that outside international community as he is to his own country people, and what did he say? On that. He be that the woman. Under you got Kim. Jon in just said, look, I'm always ready to sit down with the US president again will. That's not surprising. We knew that. But he says if the US miscalculates our patients, if it forces us down this path of it puts pressure upon us, then we've really got no option, but to explore a new way, it's really a microcosm of everything that's happened over the last year so last year with tensions too high. He made this very chilling statement about a nuclear button on my desk. There's from somewhere. But at the same time, of course, he was indicating that he was interested in a reproche Mon he made this over chore on the Winter Olympics in Seoul. And of course, that's what's helped to pave the way towards North Korea's participation and not let of course to the Singapore meeting with Donald Trump himself seven thirty five in the morning, if you're just waking up we're continuing our breaking coverage ahead of the meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Hoon in Singapore. Security measures are at an all time, high President Trump and Kim Jong Hoon or right here in the same city there hotels, or now, let's the half mile apart on the agenda for North Korea's nuclear arsenal. And the Trump White House has been both raising hopes and lowering expectations about what will be accomplished here in the coming hours. They met one to one and one of the most alarming things perhaps is that Trump told people off towards so don't worry about the notes because I've got a great memory. So it will be fine. When I think, that's pretty terrifying. Prosper? Victim it sold. Have great memories of. I don't have to tell meaningful discussions. Where will we know? They came out with the statement at the end of it. But it was pretty weak stuff. Men. Trump was sort of up and praising Kim showman for running his country tough, which is quite the euphemism. For some of the atrocities that the UN reports have described his retailer anybody that takes over a situation. Like he did at twenty six years of age, and is able to run it and run a tough. Really it seemed as if Trump was under the impression that North Korea had kind of committed to denuclearization will it's when it talks about sit of denuclearization. What North Koreans is something that is crucial. It's staged and above all is reciprocal. It's not saying, you know, let's check out on UK's tomorrow. What the US is still sort of talking about is. Well, it's got to be verifiable. It's got to be final. They're talking. About North Korea getting rid of that weapons of mass destruction. Remember that this is a country which was flattened by US booms in the Korean war in the fifties. And it's seen what's happened around the world. So what happened in Iraq? And also saw what happened in Libya, and I think the lessons it really took from that is that you get weapons of mass destruction. And you hang onto weapons of mass destruction. But we've seen is that they've come out of twenty eight teen with a summit with the US president, which in itself was this extraordinary coup for them. They gave nothing they made no concessions to win that and they were treated as if they were the equal on the world stage of the United States. I think the other key point is that South Korea put in a huge amount of work here in making this possible. And in trying to calm things me South Korea's in a very unin viewable position. Because of course, they're sort of the most vulnerable point and all of this and the moon Jae in administration really hard sought from the first to retract the north..

Is almost like a showcase city. It's only delete of the elite who get live that sort of the luckiest North Koreans.
