"Democratic congresswoman Jan Schakowsky encapsulating a sense among critics after the speech for the president's calls in his address to move forward together. The light the way he's actually governed. Lima four reporting. Well, let's pick out one of the foreign policy points from that address. Here's what President Trump had to say about US relations with North Korea. If I had not been elected, president of the United States. We would right now in my opinion being a major war with North Korea much work remains to be done. But my relationship with Kim Jong UN is a good one. Well, let's speak now to Mark Fitzpatrick. Joining us live from Washington, he's an associate fellow at the International Institute for strategic studies. He was a senior State Department official in charge of non-proliferation. Welcome to NewsHour. What what do you make of President Trump saying that he is responsible for averting a major war with North Korea? Well, it's it's almost laughable. Because a year ago a year and a half ago. Many analysts myself included thought that a war was very possible. Fifty fifty chance because of partly because of his rhetoric about a fire and fury and talk in the White House at that time about a bloody nose strategy. He then went on to reconcile with Kim Jong Lynn, so he averted the crisis that he had contributed to, but he likes to take credit for that kind of thing creating a crisis, and then averting it. Indicates that North Korea has less up on nuclear activities since he and Kim Jong UN signed this joint statement, which some regard is pretty vague the statement on denuclearization. What's your view of where we're at in terms of what North Korea has done. Well, they haven't really load up much at all. The one thing they have lit up on is a nuclear testing. They haven't tested for over a year, and they haven't been launching missiles, and that's a good thing. But there's no sign that they've led up on their building of nuclear weapons on their development of of better nuclear weapons they've they've closed a testing site, but without any international verification. So when he said, there's a lot more to be done that part is certainly true. There's a great deal more to be done. If we ever get to the goal of denuclearization. And what are we then to make of the key challenges ahead of the summit that President Trump announced in Vietnam. I'm not very optimistic that the summit will produce more than the Singapore summit produced which was a great photo opportunity for both presidents, but didn't really create anything specific. Trump's team has been trying hard to get more specificity his kion boy to North Korea. Stephen big was finally allowed to meet with his north grand counterparts. So he's in North Korea. Now trying to get trying to put some meat on this big promise of denuclearization. And maybe just maybe they will achieve some progress in defining what North Korea means by that. And whether North Korea really would be willing to close Yongbyon as they said they would exchange for corresponding measures. And then with those corresponding measures would be is the big item on North Korea's mind. Just very briefly the view from South Korea is much more optimistic than you seem to be outlining. Well, South Koreans are optimistic because Trump is right that they're they're not talking about war right now, south greens are not living in a state of tension, and their president is been seeking reconciliation and he deserves much of the credit for the easing of tensions. But unless North Korea takes real steps toward denuclearization. The sanctions that the world has imposed on North Korea will will not be relaxed, and it will be in a status a status of of a presumed positively without any specificity to it. Mark Fitzpatrick who is joining her joins us live from Washington DC from the International Institute for strategic. Studies was also, of course, a senior State Department official in charge of non-proliferation. Thanks. Well, let's go back to that state of union address. What does it actually achieve does America need one a tool, I've been speaking to Mitch Daniels, whose former Republican governor of Indiana now, president of Purdue University he thinks it's no longer fit for purpose? What did he think though of the latest address? Oh, I'm not sure the world needs another theater critic this morning out. I'll say, I guess because my complaints for the state of the union are generic rather than specific to last night or to any recent president. No, I got I was fairly typical you had. It was too long. It was. I would say reasonably poor quality in terms of the rhetoric. There was lots of play-acting in the audience and a lot of attention to that by those covering it. So I think I thought it had all the elements that, unfortunately, I believe have drained the civic value out of this particular ritual, a reason that among many others, I know have suggested it ought to be discontinued in favor of a formal written statement as as we want. So what why do you think it it? It should be just got rid of. Why why what's your why did you feel so strongly about that? First of all, it's not required. It's not contemplated by our constitution. Only a report to congress. And that's what we had for our history until at the dawn of the modern age. Politicians saw not propagandistic opportunities in it began converting it more to that purpose. I'm a big fan of civic occasions and ceremony which reminds us as as as Americans our good fortune and all those things we have in common. This the state of the union as it's evolved. I believe only doesn't serve that purpose. But in some ways runs counter to it is more likely to promote cynicism in its viewers than than citizenship and patriotic unity. But you could argue that it could be exactly what you're asking. It should be that it is down to the political culture that has made it what your criticizing. I agree. But I think it would be state to the sign up to the severe turn. Our current political culture has I hope temporarily taken lack of civility sharp division personalization of policy differences, all that because the state of the union, I think it's been deteriorating for quite a long time and has become steadily less and less of a occasion for of unity and dignity. But but I wonder whether you would consider that. What we see in the platform that the state of the union addresses is the cotton thrust of politics as it has existed. I would you know. You know, I was thinking I rather admire the way few Brits do things your house of Commons is a free for all and full to molten actual debate. And so forth. Quite a contrast boring. Unwatchable procedure dominated proceedings of of our congress. But you're ceremonies are rich with tradition respect and uplifting occasions, and we have it exactly the opposite way. At least with regard to this ceremony. We we should put the rambunctious stuff in the process. And and where it belongs and not in. What is supposed to be a? An occasion for a national convening. Well, that's an interesting perspective on what happens in house of Commons here. Former Republican governor of Indiana Mitch Daniels will return to the state of union address and speak to someone who very firmly supports President Trump before the end of the program. You're listening to NewsHour. It's.
