John Bolton's Damning Indictment of Trump
"Police reform two Supreme Court rulings to Juneteenth many of the week's biggest stories involved the president of the United States we're starting off with a new book by his former national security adviser John Bolton who did not testify in the impeachment proceedings but who broke his silence this week with his new book coming out next week the room where it happened is his account of working under president Donald Trump in it Bolton warns of the president being taken advantage of by foreign adversaries I think Putin thinks he can plan like a fiddle I think Putin is smart tough I think he sees that he's not faced with a serious adversary here I don't think he's worried about Donald Trump he claims the president's only focus was winning again in twenty twenty I think he was so focused on the reelection that longer term considerations fell by the wayside describing his presidency in terms of obstruction of justice as a way of life John Bolton said Donald Trump simply isn't up to the job the president may well be a superb deal maker when it comes to Manhattan real estate dealing with arms limitation treaties on strategic weapons dealing in many many other international security issues are things far removed from his life experience Fulton disputes the book contains classified information but top Intel officials warn it could cause grave damage to national security both gave his first interview to ABC chief foreign correspondent Martha Raddatz it's airing at nine o'clock Sunday night this week I talked to Martha about her interview the significance of Bolton's accounts and what it all might mean for the country this book there is so much in it for everything from president trump is a radical irrational foolish stunningly uninformed was there any one thing that stood out in this beside some of those comments the book is just briefly job drop paying page after page and the interview is as well John Bolton says this is just a book of facts what happened during his seventeen months in the White House I think it's so important to remember he is the highest ranking official who's written such a comprehensive book like this while a president is still in office he told us he concluded from all that he saw that the president isn't fit for the office of president I don't think he has the confidence to carry out the job there really isn't any guiding principle that I was able to discern other than what's good for Donald trump's re election was very firm about that and that is an extraordinary statement for someone to make about a sitting president yeah I'm structure of justice as a way of life expelled on them he talks a lot about what happened during the Ukraine back and forth John Bolton of course as you remember did not testify during the impeachment hearings and he's been heavily criticized for that but he says he thinks that the hearing should have been expanded they should have looked at other things that the president has done with foreign leaders if he does not say that they are are impeachable but he says it's possible their peach bowl and he's talking about relationships with with China with other foreign leaders with Turkey and he says some of these foreign leaders cannot wait to get in a room alone with president trump without aids without Bolton so they could make a better deal for themselves what does that mean as somebody who has covered global affairs for such a long time as you have looking forward for even just the next few months of this presidency or possibly the next four years if the president is reelected all when it comes to foreign policy in American security one of the things the president said is that parts of this book are classified and that they could harm national security and when you ask John Bolton about that I mean he clearly says a lot about what was said inside the rooms with these foreign leaders because John Bolton was there trump says he's a liar but whatever those stories are out there and I said look doesn't that harm national security that John Bolton is writing about foreign leaders and he said look it's not anything those foreign leaders don't know I think what John Bolton says about the president not being prepared for these meetings those are alarming statements I am I'm sick of my own preparation for that was that for the Singapore summit in the Hanoi summit and and you really want to read up on those things and you know John Bolton saying the president did not and wasn't prepared for them but foreign policy in the country Bolton will say it's been harmed if there is another four years it could be harmed further according to Bolton what's the overall reason for this book do you think I can only tell you what John Bolton says and he said he wanted to get just the facts out of what he saw that he thought they were important to get out that he thought it was important for people to hear what the president said and John Bolton clearly is concerned about the presidency and about the future I think that is why he wrote this book it is almost six hundred pages all I can say is that John Bolton insists he did not write this to settle scores he says he wrote it to let the American people know what goes on in the White House with president trump

Bolton book says Trump asked Chinese president for reelection help
"Yesterday there was that anvil of a tell all book from former trump national security adviser John Bolton dropping in media reports including an interview on ABC ABC's political director Rick Klein is here and Rick start with the court rulings a president who presumably planned to boast to supporters in the upcoming rally an election that he fill the courts with conservatives but two big losses your thoughts yeah it's a strange it's a strange situation for him because on one level you're right this could demoralize supporters have been so proud of these pics I and it's kind of strange for the president to have these blows dealt to him I basically citing him for a lack of confidence governance company governance among other things on the other hand did he really want to deport hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants that that existed dreamers right before the election he really want to get people to lobby fired he doesn't I think personally care that much about the social issues in it maybe the Dodge some legislative and legal bullets here and he can now turn this into a rallying cry he's at he's tweeting this just this morning as I'm sure you've seen that Todd maybe the courts have it out against Donald Trump and eventually turned into a different rallying cry at the rally tomorrow yeah well an apparently everybody has it out for him including John Bolton and let's take that up the president is also threatening legal action to prevent his former national security adviser John Bolton from publishing that tell all book the room where it happened it's supposed to be released to the public Tuesday but the cat way out of the bag with interviews he characterizes the president as ill informed driven almost exclusively by his desire for reelection easily influenced by dictators here's your colleague Martha Raddatz add the full interview is going to air Sunday night how would you describe trump's relationship with Vladimir Putin I think Putin thinks he can plan like a fiddle I think Putin is smart tough I think he sees that he's not faced with a serious adversary here I don't think he's worried about Donald Trump well I think they did this kind of judgment from former national security adviser is almost without precedent while the president is still in office to say that he is unfit for office at the catalog confirmation in essence of the charges that brought the impeachment inquiry and a roughly similar situation regarding China it is damning it is devastating I look president has weathered plenty of books before by people like James call me all the way through Arosa but what makes this may be different is the the timing and to have this now dove tail with Joe Biden's messaging about the president of being unprepared for crises as played out with over nineteen and this tense moment around race relations it challenges the president in a fundamental way and he is out there tarring John Bolton I'm saying he's a liar and and it made things often is is out for profit motives but he's going to have to answer for lots of specifics here as well as the general sense that a growing number of Republicans will say that this president just doesn't know what he's doing will ease some of the allegations the president didn't know that Finland isn't part of Russia but you mentioned China it barely according to Bolton trump pleaded with Chinese leader xi to help him win reelection by buying lots of stuff from American farmers and this is from a president who was impeached although not removed from office but impeached for inappropriate relationship with a foreign leader but the well Rick didn't matter to his base or fervent Republican backers like Jim Jordan are you hearing that any of this matters I don't think it's surprising the people that were inclined to to not believe the president a way I think where it has a greater impact is in how the cumulative efforts of of so many folks have to draw on the shortcomings of this White House and you have a Republican group out there that's been a trolling the president with ads in Washington and elsewhere questioning his fitness for office I don't think that John Bolton or really anyone is capable of of of a mass defection among the trump base but for lots of orders you might have questions about his is ready yes or maybe just be weary of the drama surrounding Donald Trump I'm John Bolton it offers an important piece of evidence from someone who literally was in that room when it happened

Obama pushes Trump’s button on the economy and Trump responds
"President trump is fighting back at former president Barack Obama who's taking credit for the trump economy Obama tweeted Corey Levin years ago today near the bottom of the worst recession in generations I sign the recovery act paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history end of quote president trump's national press secretary respond it quote president trump reversed everything failed obamacare economic policy and with that reverse the floundering Obama Biden economy Obama and Biden orchestrated the worst economic recovery in modern history end of quote let's explore the showing that what you hear over and over and over again is how Obama laid the foundation for the trump economy but for the wonderful things that Obama did lord knows where we would be may I remind you of some of the things that so called experts like mark Cuban the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and experts like Paul Krugman the economist who also writes a column for The New York Times both predicted economic disaster in the event the president trump came in great to have you with us and let's put politics aside we're just talking about this notion on the street that seems to be early prime one out there that the trump presidency could actually hurt stocks what you're calling for though is very dramatic and drastic a fifty percent decline over his presidency would be four years so let's get through the the back of the envelope calculations here how do you get there it it would definitely fall yes for two reasons I mean you saw it when they call me email came out with a with the market and and so trump's temperament which I think is a significant issue for the market whenever you have a clue I would handicap if trump wins I would handicap the the likelihood that the probability that he would say something stupid and offensive during a four year term multiple times at a hundred percent because markets were reassured Marley Clinton was doing okay it markets markets would be very destabilized by conflict for instance particularly as if the on likely event happens and trump wins you will see a market crash of his star performer proportions I thank them for causing it it's made for the incoming trump was to be elected it would be a rise in on the stock market arrives Russian until that I mean I I have my trumpet John in the event Donald wins I have no doubt my mind the the market thanks and now the reason this is relevant is because Donald Trump of course a plan to reverse obamacare lower taxes lower corporate taxes those are not the kind of thing for the point was promising so therefore they assume that by doing those things he was going to crash the economy I find it fascinating that Obama and the Democrats taking credit for the economy more with a set up that the trouble due to economy and how many times have you heard them say that president trump has been quote undoing Obama's legacy even doing a bomber's legacy how do you take credit for having undone his legacy left wing black host of shows on be on PBS and on NPR Tavis smiley in twenty sixteen I'm sad to report that in every single leading economic category black America has lost ground over the last decade in every major economic category we've lost ground to this book comes out he said in two thousand six so clearly this book was out before mama shows up to win two thousand eight so the book was never about Barack Obama being this ten year update it's not about him now but it is true that doubt over these last ten years most of that on his watch black America has lost ground in the major economic indicator categories that is true given the credit this is B.

Questions remain after Trump's speech on Iran
"The president's speaking to the American people today tonight the White House releasing these new images of the president and his top national security advisers in the situation room last night after the Iranian attack. Late today his staff briefing members of Congress about what led to the deadly drone strike. Roy then caused Iran to retaliate. One angry Republican senator afterward calling it the worst briefing he's ever heard while serving in the Senate here's ABC's chief White House correspondent Jonathan Jonathan Karl. The president stepped before the cameras today flanked by the military leadership and made his first comments about Iran's attack on US facilities in Iraq Iraq. Now Talking Peace Not War. Iran appears to be standing down which is a good thing for all parties concerned at a very a good thing for the world. The president is standing down to after monitoring the attack last night in the situation room. The White House releasing these photos today he I decided he would not strike back at Iran instead he called for economic sanctions and suggested what he really wants is negotiations with Iran's leaders. We must must all work together toward making a deal with Iran that makes the world a safer and more peaceful place. Still he defended. It is decision to order the strike. That Killed Qasim Sulejmani last week in recent days he was planning new attacks on American targets but we stopped him but the the White House still hasn't revealed to the American public any evidence Sulejmani presented an imminent threat today. The president's national security team gave closed door or classified briefings to Congress. Democrats left thoroughly unconvinced and one of the harshest reviews came from a Republican senator. Mike Lee of Utah Utah. Probably the worst briefing of seen at least on a military issue in the nine years I've served in the United States Senate one of the messages we receive from the briefers. I was do not debate. Do not discuss the issue of the appropriateness of further Miller military intervention against Iran. And then if you do you'll be emboldening. Iran it's un-american. It's unconstitutional and it's wrong. Words from a Republican senator late today Giancarl live at the White House and John Senator. Mike Lee says he's so angry that will now support a measure to limit the president's ability to wage war in Iran. Both the House and the Senate are are soon be expected as soon vote on resolutions that would limit the president's ability to take military action on Iran without first getting congressional approval. It's unclear whether that would pass in the Republican controlled Senate and of course even if it passed both chambers David it would almost certainly be vetoed by the president. Already giancarl with us from the White House again tonight John on thank you heard. President trump saying we are ready to embrace peace when it comes to Iran but how the Iranians respond. ABC's chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz. She's bed in Tehran for days. Now and Martha with us live again tonight. And what are you hearing underground Martha Well David Tonight. The threat of all out war here certainly seems over for now. The Foreign Foreign Minister tweeting that Iran has concluded proportionate measures with its retaliatory strikes adding that Iran does not seek escalation or war but they are a long way from any sort of negotiations as president trump suggested they simply don't trust him and there is still fiery rhetoric coming from officials here on live TV today. Iran's supreme leader calling the Iranian missile strike a slap in the face delivered to America and calling calling for all US troops to get out of the Mideast. So David a heat may be turned way down this standoff with Iran is far from over David Martha Raddatz in Tehran. Hey Ron Martha thank

Navy Secretary forced out after Trump's war crimes intervention causes division and chaos in military
"So this is right now. Probably the the world's most famous talk yesterday. President trump congratulated America's favorite member of the Armed Services Code Him. The dog help take out the leader of Isis. And we just gave Conan a metal plaque. And it's really uh and I actually think exactly what was going on the mall. That was all smiles. That is not the mood at the Pentagon right now because while Conan might have a job former Navy secretary Richard Spencer does not to wash now where the navy sector has been forced to resign resigned at odds with President trump and his Pentagon secretary over the handling of navy seal warcrimes case as we reported yesterday so I went back to president. Trump's defense of navy seal convicted deposing with the corpse of a prisoner a teenager. Spencer's boss defense. Secretary Mark S. Burt originally said this was all about not respecting the chain of command but yesterday we started hear from the president himself and exactly how this forced resignation went down. ABC's chief global affairs correspondent. Martha Raddatz is with us. So Martha I mean what have we learned over the last twenty four hours. Well the president clearly is the one who ordered the Pentagon to let Eddie Gallagher keep his seal Triton Pin with any gallagher. Did you know that story Mary. Well they wanted to take away and I said No. You're not gonNA take it away. He was a fighter. He was one of the ultimate fighters tough guy and secretary criterion Esperer. The defense secretary said okay. Basically I give up. We're not gonNA have this review where it was possible that he could have lost that Trident. Pin meaning his signifies. He's a seal but more than that his rank which provides benefits as well and I was going to confuse Martha because originally Mark Asper that defense secretary saying. Hey Guy Brand under me Richard Spencer Kinda went behind my back and talk to the White House about this deal but the deal was let gallagher. Keep us pain. which would from the words of Richard Spencer it really sounded like he is not on board with US Navy seal or what the White White House is doing it? It's all very confusing and secretary. Asper made clear that he and Mark Milley the chairman of the Joint Chiefs wanted. The process has to go forward. Wanted to allow the Navy to review gallagher and whether he deserved to keep that tried to pin and his rank doc and benefits defense secretary. espy says he fired Spencer for going around him. In dealing with the gallagher issue what happened according to Esber. Is that Secretary Spencer. The Navy Spencer who is a trump appointee was talking to someone at the White House White House folks and saying look just let the review go forward But in the end he'll keep his Trident Pin Navy Secretary Richard Spencer just issued a statement saying he quote cannot in good conscience obey in order he believes violates his sacred oath. What does this whole controversy mean for president trump then and his role as commander in chief? I listened closely to the President from the Oval Office US on Monday. I think what I'm doing sticking up for our armed forces and there's never been a president that's going to stick up for them and has like like I have including for him to say look. They wanted to take his pin away. And I said you're not going to take it away. He was great fighter. And then you have a system where these warriors with him get put in jail for twenty five years. I'm going to stick for our warrior. I will stick up for the warriors. Okay thank you very much. Everybody those I people in Special Warfare Community who are totally against gallagher keeping that trident say that is not what their culture promotes their culture promotes order and discipline that when the fighting gets tough no matter how mad you are and how angry at that Isis fighter in what all those horrible people stand for. You're a better person and I've been asked him. I mean you know people in the military how I mean. Did you have a ballpark idea of how many of them agree with the president. That guys like gallagher kind of get a bad rap and that our soldiers need more leeway in the fog of war with prisoners of war. I mean are there are a lot of voices like that. I have not really talked to anyone. No one is reached out. In any way saying gallagher was a great guy we are back with Fox News alert update in the case of Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher and he certainly says he has his supporters and we have seen them. I'm trying to encourage people to join the most elite forces. This is a perfect example of how you can destroy that recruitment but I I was in touch with someone I vastly vastly respect. WHO's been in the navy seals for decades and he said the leaders of the special warfare community will feel like they've been chopped off at the knees he's by having the president's Stop Dish Review the jury acquitted gallagher on the most serious charges but convicted him proposing an picture next the body of a teen Isis fighter? They've already taken away about a hundred and Fifty Trident since twenty eleven for lesser offenses. And this this community is so proud of how they got there what they do and what they stand for and there are many of them who do not believe leave that Eddie Gallagher stands for that anymore. The plan is for him to retire soon but he will retire with that pin on his
"martha raddatz" Discussed on Talk Radio WPHT 1210
"Asked the question that was asked was why didn't they spend more time investigating and everything like this. And I I'm I'm telling you the reason they didn't want to they needed something to get you and me and everybody else in America. Stop talking about the BuzzFeed story. How do I know him, right? Martha Raddatz Martha Raddatz ends an interview with a Republican Senator James Langford. Sunday as she fills in for unbiased journalist, George Stephanopoulos on ABC's this week cut three teenage Trump supporters taunting a native American veteran at the end of the indigenous peoples March here in Washington, your state has one of the highest native American populations. What's your message to those teenagers and has the president created this environment doing things like calling Elizabeth Warren Pocahontas? Well, I would say a couple of things about the video one is obviously they mean sitting awkwardly close to someone that doesn't seem natural to be able to have that don't see him. Taunting him. I see him just standing there staring at him. I would say there are a lot of rallies that I've seen you don't think that would be intimidating to have the teenager. No, certainly I do that wasn't trying to say that that was saying that is intimidating standing awkwardly close to him. But I've seen lots of rallies events or obscene, individuals yelling and screaming and people's faces in trying to be able to intimidate them. So I've seen a lot worse than that. That is highly disrespectful. Not only to a native American Jomon, but any older. For a teenager to do that, the key issue that I would say is in our culture, for whatever reason in our current culture. Whether it's on social media, whether it's at events, I see people trying to stop hate with more hate now. Obviously Senator Lankford do not see the whole video by the time. He was making those comments on Sunday the media's pushing the narrative there so by the time the Sunday show with Martha Raddatz on ABC news is there more than enough time for ABC news producers to go and watch the full video.
