How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism - burst 1

"Chaos in afghanistan upton as president biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the taliban today august seventeenth. We will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy. The buckles in modern history. Good afternoon. i'm meeting. Kim and this is the outspoken oma quote. Joe biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades and quote. Who said that not trump not a partisan congressmen or republican operative. That was robert gates. The former secretary of defense under president obama for three years and today as we see significant foreign policy the buckle unfolds in afghanistan that quote is once again reaffirmed now quickly dive into some basic background information as to what is transpiring in afghanistan back in mid april president biden announced immediate withdrawal all american troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. Obviously september eleven was chosen dates because that was to recognize the anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks and which led to the immediate was occupation of afghanistan because at the time afghanistan was harboring osama bin laden on august fifteenth. The taliban took over the capital of kabul effectively toppling. Afghanistan's governments later afghan. President ghani fled the country right before taliban leadership storm the presidential palace and thousands of afghan citizens fled to kabul international airport to skip the taliban. Now while oldest was transpiring. President biden was in camp david and he was strong criticized because he didn't have a strong message or strong immediate message in response to all of this so he traveled back to washington. Dc to address the nation from the white house one of the biggest elements that he was criticized for in the speech was the blame game in which he played and one of the obviously notable people in which she blames forwarded the buckle in afghanistan was trump and sort of implied some blame to bush and obama. He said quote when i came into office. I inherited deal that president trump negotiated with taliban on the his agreement. Us forces would be out of afghanistan. May i twenty twenty one. Just a little over three months after i took office. Us forces had already drawn down during trump administration from roughly fifteen thousand five hundred american force to two thousand five hundred troops in country. The taliban was strongest militarily. Since two dozen one the choice i had to make as your president was added to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season and quote. And but if you actually look at the deal that trump's state department may with taliban it's not what biden actually described in his address at a nation. Mike pompeo who was secretary of state under president trump said in a recent interview that the deal of the taliban was strictly conditional which meant that deal was was strictly predicated on the taliban committing to a peaceful transfer of power in order for america to withdraw after that commitment to a peaceful transfer of power appel said in a recent interview quote we would have demanded the taliban actually deliver on the conditions that we let out in the agreement including the agreement to engage in meaningful power sharing agreement some that which we struggled to get them to do but made it clear it was going to be required before we completed requirements to fulfil foley withdrawal and unquote. And you know there are some criticisms of the deal. Mike pompeo made with the taliban. Obviously the taliban actually pursuing a peaceful transfer of power from the afghan government was not going to happen. I mean we actually thought. That was being overly idealistic. So people had that criticism upon pales deal but even if biden did not agree with the policy that trump's state departments made in efforts to come to some sort of consensus with the taliban he kind of reversed it. I mean he was president for seven months. Which meant that. He'd independence day department and independence defense department and he could have used his powers as the chief executive to to reverse a deal that the previous administration made i mean for his entire time as president of the united states reversed nearly every single policy. That trump did while he was president. So this is no exception. I mean he should own up to the flaws of the policies in which he tried to pursue in addition to to trump he also blamed the afghan military. He said quote. The truth is but this did on for the more quickly than we had anticipated. So what happened. Afghanistan political leader escape up and fled the country the afghan military collapse. Sometimes we're not trying to fight if anything developments at the past week reinforced the ending. Us military involvement in afghanistan. No was the right decision. American troops cannot ensure not be fighting a war and dying in award. Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves and quotes. This is honestly one of the most politically cynical things that i've ever heard biden say the afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. Fifty thousand afghan military soldiers died in darndest entire two decades of us occupation of afghanistan. And the reason why they cannot successively defend themselves against the taliban was because biden himself pulled out a contractors and basically destroyed the afghans dependency on us military which are obviously undermined the ability of afghan military to counter act opposing taliban forces. According to the wall street journal quote in the wake of president biden's withdrawal decision the us pulled its airports air support intelligence and contractors servicing afghanistan planes and helicopters. This meant that afghan military simply cannot operate anymore and quote. Admittedly afghan leadership was significantly underprepared in the wake of the draw because as by afghan officials did not believe america will draw however according to andrew watkins a senior analyst for afghanistan and at the international prizes group research advocacy organization. There was no evidence that the taliban significantly increased their manpower and argue. The only reason why there's summer offensive was successful was due to a lack of us. Air strikes which meant that biden's administration shorter significant blame for the dismantling of the afghan government. What biden actually expect to happen when he pulled the entire the tire. Us presence from afghanistan if the afghan military dependent so much on the us occupation of afghan for the viability of their own independent military force. Then of course when they pulled out of afghanistan. The afghan military by itself was not sufficient enough to defend against the taliban if you're pulling out intelligence contracts that were vital for the dependency of the afghan military than have military is expected to fall when the taliban was advancing to the nation's capital and one of the other things that addition to buy actually blaming everyone except for himself for the marco afghanistan biden also discussed casualties in the in the afghan occupation. He said quote. Lemme ask those who wanted to wanted us to stay. How many more how. Many thousands more of american daughters and sons are willing to risk and quotes according to abc news. There's not been a single american combat death since february eighth twenty which was eighteen months ago. That's not to belittle the two thousand three hundred twelve american soldiers that lost life in afghanistan. But it is the suggests that thousands of stationed american soldiers in the lead up to the afghanistan pull out were not being bogged down by precipitous warfare in combat honestly by contrast more than fifty one thousand taliban fighters were killed by american armed forces which shows a major power imbalance in military superiority between taliban in american forces but aside from that by reportedly sent five thousand additional troops back in afghanistan to aid withdrawal despite his call for not putting sons and daughters at risk he just said that it was egregious to put american sons and daughters at risk for filled mission. So what is different about the five thousand additional troops. He sending back into afghanistan. Aren't those sons and daughters. Also at risk and to add insult injury tens of thousands of american citizens have been left behind it in afghanistan in the withdrawal according to the washington according to wall street journal an estimated ten thousand fifteen thousand new citizens remained in afghanistan so yes it is tragic. Every single american soldier died in. afghanistan is a tragedy. No one is disputing dance but suggests that afghanistan was a present danger to the current military soldiers. There from february twenty is simply not true and biden. Really closer to speech with i think when idiotic things that he said in his entire speech close with kohl's diplomacy he said quote. We will continue to support the afghan people we will lead before. Diplomacy or international influence in or humanitarian aid will continue to push for regional diplomacy and engaging prevent violence and instability will continue to speak out for the basic rights at the afghan people of women and girls just as we speak all around the world and quote and my question is just how. How can you negotiate with radical barbaric terrorist group that subject it's ethnic religious and gender minorities to brutal torture and murder. How can you negotiate with democratic for cystic regime. That is responsible for thousands of american lives. I mean honestly gonna ask nicely are gonna get on your knees and begged them to treat the afghanistan woman fairly. I mean i don't understand why biden continues to believe that's diplomacy instead of for actually using military forces is the correct way to go and this brings us back to. What was this for honestly at the end of the day with withdrawn. Us military forces from afghanistan he effectively reversed two decades of foreign policy and the initial mission of counter terrorism and preventing a staging ground for al-qaeda according to the pentagon united states government has been eighty three billion dollars in bolstering the afghanistan government and which is effectively gone to waste. I mean we spend easily billion dollars to bolster an afghan military but the afghan military is so reliance on the american forces to to help them to secure them. But when the american forces are removed from the afghan military to aid them than the billion dollar investment goes down the drain and now according to you defense and state department officials six billion dollars in military equipment including eight hundred fifty mine-resistant ambushed protected vehicles were abandoned in withdrawal which six billion dollars in. Us military equipment is now in the hands of taliban and other terrorist organizations additionally chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley addressed congressional leaders and said that they will move the terrorist threats in afghanistan from medium according to axios which meant that. Obviously you're going to see a rise in terrorism and afghanistan and now that the taliban effectively controls its governments and to add insult injury the inside reports that taliban militants released thousands of prisoners from afghan prisons with links to islamic jihadist groups and al qaeda. So what has changed in the past two decades. We've tried to counter terrorism. We tried to decrease the the influence of kind of effectively imprisoning or killing al qaeda militants. We tried to decrease the the power of the taliban and we tried to effectively counteract attacks by the islamic jihadist groups. But it seems to me after this withdrawal after the dust settled what is going to be. The state of afghanistan will be similar to the state of afghanistan when we first invaded and his brings me to a new york times article which discussed heavier mackey. Who was a former first class army. Special forces soldier with several afghanistan deployments and will shot twice and he said in an interview with the new york times quote. I sacrificed a lot. I saw death every day every year. And the guys. I soaked with new would probably come to an end like this. But the chaos and made his andre after everything we gave. I just wish that had been away to leave. With honor and quote for people like mackey. There is a question that rang in numerous veterans. What was it for the situation. Afghanistan has become similar to america. I evaded two decades ago. All the bloodshed in lives lost in pursuit of counter-terrorism only define the terrorism revitalize. This president has trade the continuing efforts of veterans and committed a damaging dereliction of duty as commander in chief of the armed forces is devastating. What is happening in afghanistan and we can only hope citizens in afghanistan. Remain safe in this critical juncture. All right before we signed off. I like to extend a special.

Talk a little bit about cubs baseball with thomas. The p. a. announcer for the spring training for the cubs like all throughout the eighties. Like with harry carey next to him and everything so excited. Talk tom on the show Jockey declan carol gonna join us later on this week. We had declan on fact. I know exactly when we had him on november of two thousand eighteen. The reason i remember because he was the. I gotten to miami for the first time to go to gulfstream park west and he was the first guest interview. I remember interviewing him and brandon stable from this kind of shady hotel in hollywood because my gulfstream reservation didn't start till the tuesday night and i just some reason. I have a vivid memory of interviewing brandon stable and declan carol in there but When we interview he was of just getting started. He's obviously well on his way now and had a really big few days at arlington park this weekend. And so we'll talk with him about Riding in arlington and how his career is going to write some big races the wintertime down at the fairgrounds. So we'll talk with declan. Carol about all of that horse player thursday. A friend of mine is coming on the dark horse chris. Sorenson longtime horse racing nation blogger writer. Reporter did some handicap and work at colonial. I think for a day think he just did a day. Maybe it was the season though but love the dark horse. We'll talk with him. He is Trying to think of how to put this he someone who similar to me found benefit in a lot of the stuff we talk about with inside the pylons and then all a lot of the stuff we subsequently talked about here on the show. And so i'm kind of curious to talk with him. Just in how his frame of reference on betting has changed he. Someone who only plays turf races primarily almost never plays horizontal bets plays mostly win and exact abets and focuses mostly on the turf. So we'll talk about that I feel like most players. Don't do that. We all kind of play what we're given and whatever tracks we want but he someone who's Surfaced guy so. I think he does play some dirt racing but we'll we'll talk to him on thursday for our horse player thursday segments. That's what we got coming up this week again Off next monday from oriel day but will be back in the swing of things for the rest of the week so we can recapping and of course Big day out of churchill with downs after dark program. We talked with james and scott on friday. Show about the The racist there looks like a big crowd. It is nice seeing crowds again and you know i was watching the hockey playoffs over the weekend in nashville. It was packed to the gills. I know the canadian Places still aren't allowing anybody in. And i think there's is there any states anymore where there aren't people attending sports and even the mariners and washington for a while was one of the more restricted states. That you can even get half full to mariners games but Nice to see crowds. And like i said Racing under the lights. Churchill is always exciting in the feature event the winning colors stakes for the phillies and mirrors Sprinters and it was a bit of a showdown franks rock head and -sconsin both In this race in. I'm really billed as a two-horse race right three to five on frank's rocket and even money on -sconsin who was coming off that second place finisher gombeen we We hadn't seen franks rockets a second place. Finish it oakland back in april. Let's take a listen. To travis jones call of the winning color stakes from churchill downs and off had stumbled badly coming out of the starting gate than his off last goodie beginning for rising seas and with that franks red cat comes onto graham second and tipsy gal joins them three across detract from third three and a half lengths back to -sconsin fourth and slow. Starting headland is at the back in fifth. There's fine for lungs to go. Rising seas shows the way down the backstretch run. Franks rocket not pressuring sitting back while second. There's four furlongs left tipsy gals in the clear racing. Third scancen moves over to the side for the run around the fire. Turn twenty one in three. Was the opening quarter mile. There's three furlongs to go and here comes. Franks rocket to crank up the pressure on rising seas. Tipsy cows trying to stick with them the three of them take out of the quarter pole. -sconsin is not far behind and she switched outside fourth headland fifth top of the stretch rising seas still in front. Franks rakhat trying to get by. -sconsin burst on the scene. Here comes -sconsin now fourth. And now i and now second and -sconsin rocketing by the pacemakers -sconsin in front rising seas back in the second franks record is third headland and tipsy gow -sconsin score so franks rocket with a nice victory in the winning keller stakes. I actually hit play on my recorder here and did like a whole six or seven minute talk about the race and apparently i hit play twice because i hit start stop did not record any of it so i'm gonna talk about it again in my head but for the first time for you guys. It's rare that happens. I think for the most part. I usually get it out and one take. There's i mean there's actually quite a few times where have to edit through but builds a two horse race and certainly was not to race. I mean yeah rising seas get up for a second but this one horse race -sconsin just completely running with it settled nicely. Franks rock broke just a touch slower and kinda rushed up and was up part of the early pace but i mean. I don't know that you can make excuses. I mean she. Was you know that she was up there on a hot pace but this was this was a one horse battle of -sconsin just completely blew their doors off. -sconsin right now is going so well and you know at least the last couple starts at just seems to love churchill. I mean look they take her to keeneland you know is it the surface or was the fact that she was running against great one competition both times and and kind of couldn't keep up with them. i'm not sure she's been okay. At ellison keeneland at kind of similar levels had optional claiming races run. okay before. but there's just something. I don't know if it's timing. I don't know what it is but she seems to love churchill downs and obviously as ed said last week a lot of the locals very happy when the local guys win and greg foley be a trainer certainly a local churchill guy as far as franks rockets concern. I mean it's hard to say she's bad form. She won nicely in her seasonal debut in the american beauty and kinda thought she was just going to be set for a big season here now again. She hasn't run poorly. She was beaten three quarters of a length but she hasn't run. I think like what people were expecting you know. She rattled off three straight wins last year. Great twos and threes that were and didn't by open links at saratoga belmont and there's an expectation that she is going to be you know was going to be a major player on this division and maybe it was just the who she was running against their the new york sprint division royal charlotte and horse like that. Maybe it center. I'll maybe they're just not representative of what that level normally means new york. You know 'cause like i said. She did beat by by rising seas. The ben colbert trainee and abandoned. Kind of been a little heater now and you know off to a bit of a slow start a churchill downs but obviously got a nice run out of this horse who was making a bit of a jump up in class but As far scott's concern i gotta think they wanna stay at churchill and Would think that that's just kind of the plan going forward for her. She's been so good there and obviously they probably still have I would think there's gotta be a stake in and around stephen foster weekend as we get closer to the end of the meat here at legendary churchill downs the other feature was the cure tana steaks and it was temple city tear. You know this is a mile and a half turf race. And i always feel like these. I like in general when riders kinda open up and try to steal races This was one where it didn't necessarily work out. What's interesting is every horse in this race was coming out of like one of a couple of races all from the same weekend at keeneland like everybody in this race at round the twenty second or the twenty third of keen last time out so familiar foes data and miguel made a tried to steal it. The open fifteen or sixteen lengths. They go forty eight to the half a mile a half raisin it almost worked and like i said i don't hate when guys try to steal races on the far turn in the early stages but i guess my own half race. It seems like it works less often than maybe a mile and a sixteenth petard steal away in a mile and a sixteenth usually..

"You add the average of twenty five thirty seats that are usually picked up. I mean it should be a really good year for republicans but then you wonder. Is it going to look like eight years. When bill clinton was elected president. Are you know he lost it. Ninety four republicans picked up a few and ninety eight but he got elected. You look at barack. Obama had a huge loss in two thousand ten to the tea party but he got elected in two thousand eight and two thousand twelve. And then you just wonder whether again Republicans could win in two thousand twenty two and that would set them up to go even further down the trump road and when the national election comes along then we could possibly see the same thing that happened with bill. Clinton and with barack obama both getting reelected despite the fact that get drubbing. The first midterm again getting way ahead of ourselves but again that's what strategies about. You can talk about tactics how we win next year. You can talk about strategy. How does the republican party plan for the next ten years. They're just not doing that.

Iran’s president blames Israel for killing nuclear scientist and vows to respond at the ‘right time’

"Joe biden could be facing a crisis in iran when he takes office the runs top. Nuclear scientists was killed. Daytime ambush friday. The scientists was considered the architect of iran's secret nuclear program that was halted in two thousand three while. Nbc news has not independently confirmed details surrounding his death. Iran's foreign minister has implicated israel in the attack but israel has not commented on the allegations. Join me now now. You're a hawk former state. Department senior adviser and host of sirius. Xm that global experience treat a policy of the quincy institute for responsibility in statecraft and author of losing it. Enemy and colonel lawrence wilkerson former chief of staff for secretary of state colin powell. So i'd like to start with you. Treat it what exactly is happening right now. What are we hearing. Well the latest is happening. Is that the iranian president. I've come out with a statement. Essentially saying that iran is not going to walk into what he called a trap by israelis to escalate and and create a war because that is in his assessment with the israelis wants But it is not clear if that is the view of other elements inside the country. Some of this debate is starting to be taking place in public in which the argument that is made by the other side is that these assassinations continued to take place precisely because in their view the iranians have not responded harshly enough to previous attacks and the only way of preventing future. Attacks is to respond harshly. This one if that happens however than there is a very significant risk for a major esscalation potentially war which according to ruhani is what the Always looking for curl wilkerson. How unusual would it be for the notes to have not been informed of this. Do you believe that the white house knew that this was going to happen. It would be extremely unusual. Maria theresa I have to believe that was informed Trump's whole effort now seems to be to be foul the recent election. So i don't think he's very attentive to but my peyot at sectors state is and i'll remind your viewers of what's up their defense robert gates Now my chancellor. William and mary that the saudis are willing to fight the iranians for the last dead american. And i would add bb netanyahu too much in yahoo in that. I think that's what we're looking at here. They want as a major outcome. A war as a middle ground outcomes they want a bombing campaign by the us against toronto nuclear facilities and as a minimum amount They want to foreclose any possibility of the new president. Joe biden reentering the joint comprehensive plan of action the nuclear agreement with iran and. It looks like they're well on that road to success to follow up on that. Because i think the what the colonel stating is quite implicates the perhaps the role of the white house in this we know that any who has been a very strong ally of donald trump donald trump has been very clear that he is an ally of israel but also want also was the one that was responsible for pulling us out of the nuclear deal with iran. And the idea that we're hearing possibly is that donald trump perhaps did this. No had israelis did this informing donald trump. But also is this netanyahu's attempt to do something under this current administration that he knows me not able to do with a biden administration will the binding administration has certainly picked up a where. The obama administration left off in terms of wanting to return to diplomacy and use the tools of diplomacy to box in bad actors. If we rewind we know. The iran nuclear deal was less about iran's as a terrorist nation and more about eliminating the ability for iran to get a nuclear weapon. That yahoo was opposed of the saudis. Were closed. But this was a coordinated effort between european countries including russia and the united states with the united states. Pulling out that really opened the door. Before is israel and the saudis to look to other avenues to influence the united states. You also had with trump national security adviser john bolton who was in iran war hawk and so some of that still remains netanyahu just last week was meeting and talking with mohammed bin salman the crown prince of saudi arabia. So they're looking at a ticking time clock of being able to behave in ways in which the international at least the united states will not be speaking up. An opposing their efforts so That's the key thing is how much can they. Box in. A biden's options By engaging the united states under a trump administration or while trump is still commander in chiefs treatise of the. Us has done officially commented on what occurred. What is your take when this idea that. Perhaps the trying to do is box in the president elect wyden. I think that's absolutely correct than i think it's also correct would counter wilkerson said that There was probably some sort of implicit green light from the trump administration for netanyahu. Go forward with this. However it's also important to recognize that. Netanyahu must also have calculated that biden. Probably does not have the political will to inflict impose a cost netanyahu if he does these things to box in biden and i think it is up to the biden administration to prove netanyahu wrong. Because i doubt that netanyahu would have gone down this path unless he felt that it was pretty much cost fee from him not just from trump but also from biden

Whats Working Right Now with YouTube SEO

"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about what is working right now with Youtube. Seo. So just F- I just reminded for everyone youtube is still the second largest search engine in the world. Again, it's owned by Google. So Neil, what is working right now 'cause with Youtube you've got what about seven hundred thousand subscribers right now. The biggest thing that I found that works with Youtube. Seo like everyone talks about the key words you need to put the keywords in your title you need have attractive thumbnails for CTR's, and that's all the stuff that everyone's doing. It's just like traditional Seo right you know this better than anyone else everyone can modify their Meta tags everyone can create content that's ten minutes long or everyone can write two, thousand, four blog posts but the big trick that I found that really boost your ranking see youtube opposite attritional Google. Seo which traditional Google, CIO, slow, and steady wins the race in Youtube, Seo whoever does really well in the first twenty, four hours of the video being released tends to win the race and you can get your rank is literally the day you pop up the video doesn't have to take months even for competitive terms, it literally be days. The real question is, how hard can you push the video in the first twenty four hours and what I mean by that is, can you do email blasts, push notification blasts and? FACEBOOK MESSENGER blasts, text blasts, anything. You can't get views in the first twenty, four hours. If you get a lot of traction in those views watched the video, they watch other videos on Youtube Bay comment because they liked the video will find is the video starts ranking really high. Yeah. If you think about it I, mean these social media tools are all created by human beings. Right. How do these algorithms work? If you think about Lincoln if I post something Lincoln or someone's share something with me, they're always sharing with. The bunch of people want a bunch of people to like it. They want a bunch of your comment. They want a ton of engagement initially, right? That's what these algorithms looking for. They're looking for the initial rush. So you're lucky enough you're fortunate enough to have audiences across the MLS. If you have push notifications to Neil's point earlier, that's good for you. Now here's the flipside tonight. Love you might be saying, well, what have we don't have an audience while I just spoke to a guy yesterday new you should definitely check. Out This podcast I think you would enjoy it. My spoke to a guy named George Gammon very successful entrepreneur was doing like twenty four million bucks a year in the retired bought of a bunch of real estate and now moved Medellin Colombia. Now in St Bart's but points this he does a really good job of teaching macroeconomics and Learning Economics in college all I did was I went to distinct called the ECON- tutor and he just gave the answers and we all copy the answers and we went into class and We all got a beep is hilarious. My point is I didn't understand much about economics, and then now I'm realizing the current climate, you have to have a really strong understanding of macroeconomic. So this guy went, he's youtube channel. This guy's audience at all from two hundred subscribers is at one, hundred, sixty, five, thousand subscribers now he did it all organically why is he so successful? It's because his level of content nobody's doing anything like that right now nobody's breaking down macroeconomic and making it super simple. It's always like three. Simple steps, right. That's what he does is topics are really good. It's not like he has amazing headlines All the time, and then I found out from yesterday he's like, yeah, I spent about twelve hours on each food.

"Campaigning for reelection as former national security adviser is calling him quote unfit for office joining me now. Someone who has worked for eight different presidents president trump not among them former defense secretary under presidents George W Bush, and Iraq Obama Robert Gates Secretary Gates is also the author of a brand new book exercise. Of Power Available Bookstores Amazon Right now secretary gates. Thanks for joining US I'm really interested in getting your reaction to what Bolton is saying about President trump. Specifically, his asking Chinese, President Xi Jinping to help him win. Re election and also offering to help Turkish president, Irwan avoid a Justice Department probe of Turkish owned bank. Do you believe Bolton the White House is denying it and what was your reaction when you heard of these allegations? I. Don't know whether what he's written is true or not. I've read that he takes copious notes. and but I would say that if those allegations are true, that's that's pretty Pretty disappointing in. A real real mistake. Frankly in my view I. think that The president's I worked for? Obviously, we're always interested in reelection, but as I rode some years ago in my experience with the president's Bush, forty, three, the second president, Bush and President Obama, I never once saw them make a decision in the situation room. based on domestic politics I know that they had domestic politics in mine, and it was a factor in their decisions, but I never saw blatant decision along those lines. It's interesting. Bolton says he, he can't think of any decision that was ever made without trump's reelection in mind. I'm really interested in your reaction. To what Bolton says that President Trump said. To President Xi about these concentration camps in China. For. A predominantly Muslim, ethnic group in China Bolton writes quote with only interpreters president. She had explained to trump why he was basically building concentration camps in. Jhang according to our interpreter. Trump said that she should go ahead with building the camps, which trump thought was exactly the right thing to do, and you have called the United States quote the defender of human rights in the world. Do you still believe that's true? Well I certainly think we need to be. And I make the point in the book I. Don't. I think that we need not. We shouldn't be the world's policeman. We shouldn't interfere. Militarily and other countries. In order to bring about democracy, or or to move the process along on the other hand, we always have to be an advocate for human rights for political freedom, and and so I think any effort to agree to or or sympathize with building in effect, concentration camps would be. would be pretty shameful. Your New Book have Right here exercise of power. Is You're quite critical of President Obama even more so of president trump. You're right of trump quote. The appeal of our ideology was further reduced by President. Trump's approach to foreign policy in which US advocacy for human and political rights silenced in subordinated to doing deals with other governments, intended to singularly advantage the United States and its economy of obviously the allegations made in the Bolton Book. Back up that impression. What do you think another four years of of Donald Trump's foreign policy would mean for the role of the US in the world. The, basic theme of the book is the importance of continued us. international leadership not necessarily as I said being the world's policeman, but just like with the corona virus. If the United States doesn't lead people working together different countries working together, no other country is in a position to take that position to provide that kind of leadership, and so I worried. Worried particularly about the president's attitude toward allies and friends, no one's pressed our allies more for to increase defense spending than I have, and we need to keep the pressure on the, but at the same time having allies is critical to our leadership position, and frankly it's a unique advantage. We have over both Russia and China. They. They don't have any allies. and. I worry that the rate we're going, neither will we so I I'm worried that there's a lack of understanding of the importance of a our international leadership role, and be the importance of allies and friends and summating and sustaining that role. Peter Navarro. The president's trade adviser just accuse China of spawning the coronavirus. Instead. It's an open question as to whether not it was created purposefully. The president has also threatened to withdraw funding from the World Health Organization. What do you think of the kind of leadership that you're calling for in the book? You talk about how it should not just be military. There's all sorts of different kinds of ways for the United States to exert leadership. What do you think about? The role of the United States when it comes to fighting the coronavirus pandemic? The. Only answer to dealing with. Problems in organizations like the World Health Organization and other international organizations is to reform and restructure them not to walk away from them. When we walk away from these institutions, we give the Chinese open field running they can. They can move their people in and the question is. How do you shape the international environment to support your own national interests, and it's through these institutions that we're able to shape the international environment, and so the answer is not to pick up your football and go home because you don't like the way the games been played, but to get back in there and figure out how to fix what's wrong. The book is exercise of power. The author is former Defense Secretary Robert. Gates thanks so much for joining us. We really appreciate it. Thank you. Doing?.

"The Sunday. Sit Down podcast. I get together with legendary actor Samuel. L. Jackson to talk about his prolific career in Hollywood and bringing shaft back to theaters. You can get it now for free wherever you download your podcasts. Welcome back the CDC in the White House. Corona virus taskforce aren't talking about it much, but the United States is in the midst of another surge of Kobe, nineteen cases twenty-five states in Puerto Rico. Have seen spikes of more than ten percent over the last two weeks. Overall, we have seen more than two million confirmed cases in the United States and one hundred sixteen thousand people have died since February. What does this all mean for the hopes of getting back to something approaching normal in the near future joining me now our Var allergist, Joseph Air, who recently recovered from Covid Nineteen, an infectious disease physician. Dr He'd. Of Boston. University welcome back to meet the press to both of you Dr. let me start with you. Because I would like you to share a little bit about your recovery from cove nineteen. What should Americans take away from your experience? Well first of all you know I could not have any underlying conditions and you know I'm not like a triathlete or anything like that, but I was generally very healthy could run exercise probably four or five times a week that being said I did not expect if I got covid nineteen that I would get ill because I don't have any of those underlying conditions. I'm forty two years old, so you wouldn't think clinically that I would. Would be one of those people that would get so very ill. I can say that that seven to eight days prior to me hospitalizing myself when I was doing this seventh, the self treatment that was the worst I've ever felt. They probably spent twenty three out of twenty four in bed, and obviously I developed the secondary pneumonia at the end, and so the struggle in reading and everything also I was shocked at how severe my illness! Illness got you know without having those underlying conditions that we've discussed so many times, and so what I would take that is you know everyone that younger everyone that is going out without mask now I'm being very cavalier with that and ignoring this kind of ungoing pandemic, and we use the analogy and the band played on with HIV into response early days. That's really the analogy. We should be using with corona virus right now to a much. Much greater extent, and so those people that are young and think they're invincible or people that just don't think it's going to affect them that greatly, even if they do get it I can say that my own experience was the complete opposite to that it. Really you know I can't say that I had a brush with death, but it was enough to put me in the ICU for four days in the hospital for six is. For. Both of You Dr Patel I to you. We're seeing spikes. In states across the country. We've broken it up by region here and you can clearly see the northeast and the Midwest those are going down, but when you break it up in the south, and the West, both of those curves are going up. What does this tell you Dr? Daily about what we're going? What the rest of the summer is GonNa look like. Check some of the benefits that the states in the south in the West hat is that when the coastal states had their peaks. We all lockdown for some states, we walked down around the same time, and so the lack of movement protected them from that influx and new cases coming in, and now we've all opened up the evidence to me in the south in the West, some of the other places is that we open to early in those states that we didn't have the ability to basically trace down the chain of transmission and stop them once people started mingling again. The most worrisome thing for me is the fact that hospitalizations are going up, you know. Know, we've talked about Arizona. They're about eighty four percent in inpatient bed us. In, in North Carolina, they're they're inching it eighty percents or seventy nine percent, and so it's not just the cases the fact that at this point hospitals are at risk of getting overwhelmed, and that is basically signaling to me that this dates are already behind in these should consider potentially whether they should be rolling back at least not progressing with further reopeing. Should they be rolling back reopening or considering lockdowns in certain counties with a lot of disease activity? You Dr Fair. There's obviously been quarantined fatigue, and you have a whole bunch of local officials and state officials who politically don't want to have to pull back or are tired of doing this. Had we at the beginning had a better more aggressive testing and contact tracing. Could we have been? been able to sort of have regional shutdowns at the beginning of this so that we would then there'd be more comfort today for instance for Texas shut down because they didn't shut down before. Is this back to our initial blindness to where this virus was three months ago? I absolutely and you know I can say you know one of the things that we you and I spoke about very early on was the need for a nationwide shutdown and I explained at the time that unless all do it. It's really moved to do it in one place, and not another, with the United States in our porous borders between the states, and so i. think that you know having not done that early on, we missed a huge opportunity to contained and even potentially radical this virus. We can't truly. Truly eradicate it because we're always going to have travel in and out of the United States and vice versa, but that being said we could have truly mitigated affects, and we missed that opportunity so now we have so many cases that as I said earlier this week that we risk the virus becoming endemic to the United States and that's going to have a lot of derivative effects to it. Such countries banning the United States ended citizens from travelling to it. You know because we're the covid one thousand nine hotspot. So, I was just GonNa. Say Use this word endemic with me the other day. Dr Fair I W- meaning. We're not gonNA. have waves I mean I heard one of the trouble or not at a second wave. No, we're not going to be one long continuous. Until we get the deal with this vaccine at this point. Is that your assessment? You know I just think that we at this point in time we have so many people that have this virus we are not on. We're not not only not putting down. Stricter measures where loosening the measures we had in place. So those cases are going to continue to rise, and once you get past a certain number with a virus like this which can be either see no, we don't see that yet with it. Being seized all, but once it gets so ingrained in the population would. There's there's not a point where we can come back from that other than getting a vaccine in place, and you know they're just means that we're going to have it in the country until the vaccine is here. Dr Bailey It's clear that. We're going to see political rallies and indoor facilities whether public health officials think.

"Institutions of authority in this country and how they eliminated, desegregation broke the back of it how the civil war led to the freedom of African Americans in this country, his approached yesterday at West Point is what we'd like to see a whole lot more of because it was constructive. It is important that all three levers of government work together to solve what is in fact, the original sin of this country if we do that? I think the American people will celebrate neither party, but but the that we worked together as one country. Senator Scott considering that that the trump campaign sort of. Ended up planning a rally in Tulsa of all places on June eighteenth. They've since moved it. But I'm curious. Do you June teeth were federal holiday already? You know sort of marked in a way that you we one of the ways we use. Our federal holidays is for remembrance for Education for for things like that. A mistake like that wouldn't have happened. I do think the more information we have. Obviously if there was a national holiday, you're hitting the nail on the head. We would all know about June eighteenth. We'd all have an opportunity to celebrate it, and frankly there'd be fewer mistakes on day. One of the aspects of our legislation frankly is providing resources in a very similar fashion that as it's done at the Holocaust museum we WANNA. Do something of the African. African American Museum to celebrate June teeth and Oklahoma Tulsa Oklahoma race riot and one hundred years ago next year. We think the more education and information that we provide the better people behave in all corridors of this nation, but specifically within the law enforcement community, so we have an opportunity to do that in our legislation, we provide some resources for that historical perspective and understanding that I what about federal holiday closer together. Well listen I'm open to. I've been talking to my friends. Throughout the country including at the White House I think that's a brilliant idea that conservatives in the house. Be Interested in that, so you never know what may happen. Senator. Tim Scott Republican. South Carolina we look forward, do they? Unveil more this next week on police reform. We taken a look and watching. Thanks for coming on showing your perspective forward to. The clearing of protesters from Lafayette Square nearly two weeks ago. President Trump's photo opportunity at a nearby church led to condemnation by dozens of military leaders and on Thursday, a continued when the chairman of the joint. Chiefs Mark Milley publicly regretted taking part in the incident. Should not have been their. Presence, in that moment, and in that environment created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics. Joining me now is Robert Gates who served as secretary of defense for both President George, W Bush and Barack Obama. He's also the author of a New Book Exercise of Power Secretary Gates. Welcome back to meet the press General Milley's. Speech. Late this week after sort of a a number of attempts to to to put some distance between what happened. Your reaction was it appropriate and did he do it soon enough? I think he really wrestled chuck with. How to respond when he realized. How. The appearances of him being present for that photo op. Seem to the rest of the country I think I I've known mark. Milley for a long time, and he's a man of great integrity, takes his responsibilities as an a political military officer very seriously I think the important thing was that he made the statement. made it with all sincerity, and frankly I think that plus his statement written statements to. Senior commanders around the world about an the apolitical nature of the American military send a powerful signal. And reemphasize the importance of the military staying out of politics, and frankly not getting used you know all the president's that I worked for like to use the military a prop think this president's probably taken that to a new level but but the military has to be very sensitive about being exploited in that way. You know another aspect that's come under scrutiny with the military on one hand as an institution, and it's an extraordinarily. It's perhaps more integrated than any other major institution in this country and yet this week we just had the first ever military chief. To beat confirmed to be ahead one of the military branches. Being, African American so. How far behind you think the military has been at least on its upper levels. And why is that you've seen it? What do you think that is? Is that a systemic racism issue? I don't know if it's systemic racism in the military, the military for a long time was out in front of the rest of the country when it came to integration into offering opportunities for African Americans and other minorities but I. Think one of the points that General Milley has made this week is that the military is going to have to pay more attention to how it moves? Officers. Minority officers into the most senior positions there have always been a individuals who have been successful Colin Powell, as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Lloyd Austin, who was the commander in Iraq, while I was during part of the period when I was secretary, so there have been a number of African Americans, but as you point out, this is the first African American service chief in all honesty. The first four star woman was appointed while I was secretary, and that was pretty far into the process as well so I. Think I think the military is really focused on now. How more? Regularly, minorities and particularly African Americans are moved into the most senior positions in the military. I'm curious of your take on the movement to change. The names of the southern military institutions the banning of confederate paraphernalia in the Marines. are all of these things that you think are. WHOSE TIME HAS COME I think I. think that. The. Opportunities are presented by events and I think we now have the opportunity. Particularly to change the names of our military facilities. I've always I've always puzzled over the fact that we don't have a Fort George. Washington or a Fort Ulysses s grant. So I think the time has come, and and and I think that. There is the opportunity not only to. Name some of these places for some of our great generals of the twentieth century, but also individuals such as African American, and other minority met a medal of honor recipients, and so on. We've done that in naming ships. We just haven't done it with our with our facilities. You've had some tough words on both of the two potential. Men Who are meeting. in the next presidential election here's what you wrote about. Joe Biden in two thousand fourteen. Joe is a man of integrity and capable of hiding what he really thinks. In one of those rare people you know, you could turn to for help in a personal crisis, still I think he has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades. Does that make them. More in your mind is that is that make it hard for you to support him for President? Well, I think the important thing is qualities. Character is important I have a lot of policy disagreements, frankly with the former vice president but I think one of the things that people will be weighing. This fall is probably the character of the of the of the two contestants. Well. Let me put up what you said about President Trump in twenty sixteen You were pretty tough on him as well. Let me read this quote. He said he is stubbornly uninformed about the world, and how to lead our country and government, and temporarily temper temperamentally unsuited elite are men and women in uniform. He is unqualified and unfit to be commander in chief. You said this September of two thousand sixteen as your assessment of him changed. I would say this check first of all, unlike his three predecessors and I write about this in the book. At least he hasn't started any new wars and he has robustly funded. The military I supported his outreach to North Korea. It hasn't come to anything, but I thought there was bold booth and everything else had failed and the previous twenty five years. I thought he's challenging. China was was about time. But. They're also the other side of the coin in terms of some of the things he says. His Treatment and words about military people and military heroes like John McCain that I admire a lot that are really troublesome. I'm just curious in your in this case. Is this a case where character trumps policy for you? Well I think that's going to be up for the up to the voters of the country. Secretary Gates I'm going to leave it. There I'm glad you brought up North Korea. If I had more time, I was GONNA. Ask you about an interesting comment from your book about North Korean about whether it is time for us to accept accept them as a nuclear power any among the many interesting things you write about I. Encourage folks to pick it up. secretary gates. Thanks for coming on and sharing your perspective sir. Thank you, Chuck. Coming up a surge in.

"Defense Secretary retired marine general and war hero. James Mattis was confirmed by an overwhelming ninety nine to one vote in the Senate. But Patrick Shanahan who was Mr. Madison's number two at the Pentagon. We'll face a much tougher road to become President Trump's newest Defense Secretary Pentagon correspondent, Ben Wolfgang at the Washington Times, says, among other things skeptical lawmakers will zero in on his lack of military experience, Ben explain compared to what James Mattis, went through a little over two years ago, you know, early twenty seventeen at the outset of the Trump administration. Mr. it had a pretty easy road to conservation. By voted ninety nine to one. He had widespread respect both sides of the aisle of people who are familiar with him from the days of military service. And so the hearings some tough questions as there, always are, but things were pretty smooth. Sailing offer James Mattis, that's not going to be the case here for Patrick Shanahan for a number of reasons. Democrats are still we some Republicans say what mostly Democrats are really hung up on his long career with Boeing's spent more than thirty years. Following an even though he was cleared by the Pentagon inspector general in a conflict of interest investigation. There are some lawmakers on the hill who are not satisfied with that. And then and it's still he's kind of acting as a basically a Boeing Schill is done defense department that he's gonna get absolutely hammered for that. But even more so than that, Gordon, I think he's gonna get. He's gonna get a lot of lack for President Trump's foreign policy. Even though you know, the Pentagon doesn't make policy they carry out policy and one the military, but with the tensions right now. You're saying with Iran with the failed US intervention in Venezuela with, you know, things seemed to be going downhill with North Korea, the missile tests, and that's not even convention things, like the, the trained gender policy that has a lot of progressives up in arms and the troops in the border, that continues to sort of be flashpoint for the broader immigration debate in around President Trump. So all of those things are the intersection of sort of President Trump's policies, and the military and Patrick Shanahan, this is gonna be the opportunity for lawmakers to hammer given all that certainly Mr. Shanahan is aware of all this, how, how does he prepare? How does he respond or push back? Well, that's that's what is fascinating to me and fascinating to a lot of people observing, this whole process is the fact that he's never been through anything like. Vista for not, not the keep bringing up games that the comparisons are, are notable here. He's not had been before congress many, many times through his decades of military service has defied about his work in Iraq at his other exploits as a four star general Marine Corps. General Patrick Shanahan had never done any of that prior to the hearing that you went through in twenty seventeen to become deputy Defense Secretary and that wasn't nearly as this is going to be. So I I'm sure that, you know, talking to people, the Pentagon, he's going through a pretty in-depth profits prepare for seventies questions, and how he's gonna handle, you know, getting hit of all these policy points. The Democrats are gonna use as they hammer the president. So I, I know he's going through a, a pretty intensive process right now to prepare for it. But he's never been Surrey thing quite like this before. So it remains to be seen if he's up for the challenge. Speaking with Ben Wolfgang Pentagon correspondent at the Washington Times about his piece entitled, Patrick Shanahan faces. Bumpy road to confirmation as Defense Secretary, he's not the first non-military guy to be in that role. Right. Oh, absolutely. Not. Then when you talk to people political observer and retired military, folks. No quick to point out to you that, hey Jim bats was more the exception than when it comes to running who defense department. You don't have to go back. You know, very far to see folks like Robert Gates or even Chuck Hagel. During the Obama administration was gone for a little over a year. I think it wasn't. You course, came from the political realm, having been a Senator. So it's not unusual to have folks from academia, occasionally from politics, certainly from the defense industry of the business world to be in charge of the Pentagon. I think what's, what's different here is that she Shanahan is coming in following in the footsteps, and James Mattis, you did have all that military experience. The respect the cable on with it, and be glad we more importantly, that thing. So controversial with everything. The Trump administration is doing and things are so tense right now in South America in Asia in the Middle East. So that you would think that you wanted to make the argument that if there's ever a time when we should have a military man or woman wanting the Pentagon, maybe visit. But instead, we have Patrick Shanahan. So but, but you're right. It's, it's not fair to say that he's some sort of outlier in home to experience. In fact, you could say that he's probably more more common this type of person is more common than than Jim Mattis was it's been Ben Wolfgang Pentagon correspondent at the Washington Times. Twenty.

I am answer venture Johnny the world news editor and this week, we're looking at transatlantic relations as the Trump administration appears to turn its back on its traditional European allies in a sign of Washington's shifting allegiances, the US president on Monday, welcomed Hungary's, illiberal leader, Victoria, Alban to the White House days, after his secretary of state abruptly cancelled a meeting with Germany's Angela Merkel joining me on the line from Washington DC is Dmitri, Sevastopol, oh, the F, Washington bureau chief and from Belene guy. Chaz on our between VERA chief my first question goes to you Dimitri. Donald Trump was fool of praises for Victoria ban on Monday. He congratulated him for his quote block up against refugees from Syria, and he's work to protect the Christian communities. Can you give us a bit of details and explain why this visit is so important and telling we'll, I think one of the things that we've learned about Donald Trump over the last two years. This is one of the things that many Europeans have concerns about is, he seems to want to solve up to leaders who are far -tarian strongmen, you know, very hard line. You know, there's a long list, whether it's early on in Turkey or on in Hungary Kim Jong on North Korea, who Donald Trump said he fell in love with or Vladimir Putin in Russia Trump when he meets these leaders at least publicly doesn't criticize them for some of the things that they're doing their own countries to threaten democracy on the other hand, he seems willing to criticize Anglo Myrtle, or Theresa May or president McConnell, France. So there's a kind of cost me come seems to like something to these strong, tough solitary leaders. And yet, he at the same time he seems to be dismissing some of the concern. Means pushing away, European allies of America who have helped maintain the kind of peace across the trans Atlantic now for seventy years. As you said, the relationship has fuss deteriorated since Donald Trump kimchi office. The US needs key. European is have diverge on a number of issues. Can you list them for us? I mean, it's really wide from climate change trade, Iran. Well, I mean, from the very beginning, it's a long list, one of the things that President Trump today early in his presence. He was he withdrew the US from the Paris climate accords which sent ripples across Europe and the rest of the world later on in his tenure, he withdrew America from the around nuclear deal that America and some of its European allies had signed with Tehran in twenty fifteen on that has led to convert more bellicose stomps on Iran. He also has been incredibly critical of NATO now in criticizing NATO. He's not the first president, President Obama and President Bush frequently said that NATO allies needed to pay more for their defense. I remember travelling to your puts on rump sell the Robert Gates and they were constantly sending this message of Europeans. But Donald Trump has done it in a much more aggressive way. And I think one of the most heading examples was last summer in Brussels out of NATO summit, he was very critical. Angela Merkel both in public meetings and in private meetings and he's shocked many of the leaders who were in the -tendance. So I mean, there are other issues there as well to do with hallway and five G telecom networks and other things. But I think there's some of the main ones that have really created a false lines in the transit onto relationship guy intending to, you know, defense. Secretary of state. Mike Pompeo cancelled a meeting with medical less tweak invoking rising tensions in the Middle East. What was the reaction in betting? I think those zoo Hora that it was seen very much as a snub, it was supposed to be his first trip to Berlin, since he became secretary of state, and it was very hotly awaited. And he just didn't turn up. And I think there was shock that he then went on to Britain. And even so they all Tricia Canterbury. So, you know, even just in Welby was more important to him as a priority. Angela Merkel those real dismay, lots of Coventry in the German press, basically saying that the US German relationship is now, basically in TATA's on, what are we going to do about this, this feeling of crisis really in a relationship, which has been one of the main pillars of Germany's post-war identity really for seventy years now. Why do you think that Mr. Trump targeted Gemini, in particular among its European on is what's your assessment of that? Well, they're personal reasons as well as political reasons. The chemistry between Angela Merkel and Donald Trump has never really worked. You know, she really comes across as associate professor, and he's like the naughty boy who didn't do his homework, he doesn't like being lectured, and Michael does have a tendency to lecture, one of the first thing she did when he was elected president. She sent him a message saying will look forward to working with you, but very much on the basis of our shed values of respect for human rights, and democracy, and so on that was perceived. As a real slight to Donald Trump. Basically a smackdown saying you're going to have to behave need didn't take Hymie to that. But there are other aspects. It's not just the chemistry America is very antagonist very exercise by Germany's failure to meet its commitment, which gave in two thousand fourteen to spend two percent of its GDP on defense. It's nowhere near that target and in fact recently published its budget estimates for the coming years, and it looks like it's actually going to go down as a percentage of GDP is spending on the military. So that was seen as a real red rag to Donald Trump's bull. And he's also, I mean, there's a very famous interview he did with playboy magazine from the ninety s where he complained about how many German cars that were on Fifth Avenue in New York, and he's had Macedo and BMW in his science for many, many years. So it didn't surprise the Germans a tool that he started talking about imposing. Import tariffs on European cars, and he's been complaining for longtime about the size of the German, current account surplus, which, of course, a lot of Germany's allies in Europe of also join attention to over the years. What do you think all the far reaching consequences for Germany? What are the Germans, what kind of lesson? They're drink from this facility longer term. Do you think there's a realization that Germany, and Europe must be more independent from a defense point of view, or, you know, foreign policy point of view? What is your sense? Absolutely. I was at a conference, whether we're talking about this and one speaker said Germany's success is built on three elements integration with the EU the transatlantic security guarantee on Germany's access to open Mockus worldwide and Trump threatens all of those three things. So there's a sense, here that there's, it's kind of existential threat posed by Trump's America first ideology tool. All those things that have made Germany, such a huge success over the last few decades. So that definitely is a feeling that they have to respond in some way. I mean it's very tentative at the moment, though, I mean, for example, that talking about developing much more of a kind of foreign policy. Competence in the EU and more of a sort of independent defense posture, and, you know, maybe getting rid of unanimity, and you decisions on foreign policy, so that they can have more qualified majority voting not come thing, but it's all relative tentative. And even when they do talk about building up their defense capabilities that gets them in hot water with the Americans. We wrote the story saying, how America was criticizing the latest initiatives for military cooperation between EU countries, the Pescara the permanent structured cooperation initiative, and EDF the European defence fund because they feel that it's not really compatible with NATO that it produces. Much duplication and diversion of scarce defense resources and it sets up a necessary competition between NATO in the EU. And so the sense of frustration in Europe over this is light. You tell us we need to do more far defense, and then we try and do it you complain. So the relationship has Radi scrunchy at the moment as we can see on the number of different fronts. Exactly. So they have this quantity move from the US. Do you want to jump in Dmitri? It's true that every time Europe speaks about more independence on the security from the US gets angry and gets a letter warning. But on the other hand, you know, you get a sense that the US is kind of retreating from Europe. What's your interpretation? Well stuffing element of Donald Trump getting a little bit of taste of his own medicine, sometimes when the European say that they want to their own defense capabilities. But I think it's also important to stress that this issue between the US and Europe on defense spending it really isn't just Donald Trump issue. And he is the one who is addressing it in a much more assertive, much more aggressive on some people would say overly aggressive way. But it's something that has stretched back now for more than a decade in the US the US than constantly saying to the European countries, particularly Germany because it is the biggest economy in Europe that they need to spend more. So I think it's an issue that's not going to go away, even if Donald Trump loses the election in twenty twenty I think a democratic president will be much friendlier to traditional US allies and I was just in New Hampshire on the campaign trail with Cory Booker and Beethoven, Joe Biden on all of them were talking about the need to rebuild on to strengthen American alliances with Europe. But notwithstanding that I still think. Whoever's president after twenty twenty is still going to put pressure on Europe to spend more money on defense, and if Germany and some of the other countries who haven't miss this two percent target haven't reached it, then I think you're still going to have tensions on that issue just to go back to one thing that guy said, I really do think the car issue is critical. I mean Donald Trump has how the being his bonnet about cars for a long time at the end of this week. He's going to potentially decide whether to put tariffs on imports of European cars. So this really is something that's a trade relationship is something that really gets him. And also when he was in Europe last year. Another thing that he criticized glimmer pool for is the Nord Stream two pipeline that will bring Russian gas into Europe and Donald Trump and some of his team are saying you want us to spend money to defend you against Russia, and yet, you're buying Russian gas on the other hand, the European say, hold on a second. You're the president who has criticized by the Putin, for orchestrating a campaign to interfere in the American elections. So there's a lot of things crossing the Atlantic and. It's very hard to see how any of this gets any better while Donald Trump is in office tensions, are escalating in the Middle East over Iran, with rising threat of war, and some echoes of cheese than three when the US in some European countries disagreed, on whether to war with Iraq. Dictates us Adam Hussain to meet you what all the broader security ramifications of this poor transatlantic relations. Are we entering a new testing phase? Well, the big question that's emerged in the last few days in Washington is are we returning to the early years of the Bush administration where it appears that there was a constant drum beat among Iran hawks for the US to take military action against Iran. Now, we know that on both in the national security advisor has asked the Pentagon to dust off its war plan for Iran. Not the caveat there is at the Pentagon has funds for everything, and there periodically dusting them off. But when a story comes out that they're dusting them off, Iran at a time when Mike Pompeo secretary of state. John Bolton and others are being very aggressive in the rhetoric towards around it raises questions as to whether the US is contemplating taking most reaction, and I think, not something that would be a huge divide across the transatlantic. I mean as much tension as two walls, when George W Bush invaded Iraq. You remember relations then between George W Bush Gertrude or Germany were extra very odd because since the war in Germany. But I think we would see something that will be exponentially worse. If the US did take any kind of military action in Iran. So people are watching very closely right now to see whether this is just on both in on the hawks making bellicose noises. Just too scary round or whether there's actually something fundamentally happening behind the scenes. My thanks to Dmitri and guy that was really fascinating. And that's it for this week till next week goodbye.

Thanks for having me elmhurst. Right. Elgin, elgin. I dunno. I was blanking on the name there. But so Judson starting this new speaker series? It's part of the world leaders Fordham, which which judge in a certainly known for and you are hosting Mark Cuban later this week the billionaire shark himself is coming to jets university in Elgin this Thursday, you it's now you say you only have French speak in the series show. How is it that your friend of Mark Cuban's? That's a good question Mark, and I have gotten to know each other. Pretty well over the last couple of years, and actually I'm going to go into more detail. But for for your listeners, we met on Twitter, you'll kidding. And the rest is his he doesn't respond to my tweets Mark with just keep trying keep trying. How is it that you got to the situation because you are two thousand four graduate of Jetson? And then went off to work were you part of the government. We will contract with Pentagon or I was a federal employees. Okay. Was an aide to Robert Gates when he was the secretary of defense. And so I was part of a unique task force that deployed to Baghdad alongside our servicemembers. So I was a civilian and deployed into Baghdad fourteen times between seven and ten in. Our our our job was to sort of, you know, Jenner portrays counterinsurgency strategy was clear and hold with the military than civilians would come in and build you don't win. You order Zealanders Witt will advising to help rebuild their economy. You don't win wars by guns and bullets you win wars by create. Getting jobs and putting them back to work. So it was a it was a wonderful enrich experience. I lived in Saddam's palace. Temporarily swam swimming pool watch movies in his home theater. You came home and went to civilian medal for your work the secretary offense global war on terrorism medal in it was a tremendous honor. What do you think those of us who didn't serve there or go? There misunderstand about the whole thing in Iraq at the time. When we were there, I wanna get typical. But you know. Ninety eight percent of a rock was sick here. Araki's trusted their police force there were community organizations protecting the community and the people and so overall it was actually a rock was getting back on its feet again. And unfortunately, we've just seen we've seen sort of that that reverse. So you bring that experience to the series in new sit down with a guy like Hubin. What do you talk about? No, good question. We're going to be talking about everything we're gonna be talking about life current events politics. The big question is Mark keeping going to run for president. And he said just sit on CNBC is watching the ten minutes ago that he's still open to the idea. He's still up into the idea. People don't realize he said this very publicly if he were to run for president he'd run as a Republican everyone thinks that because he came out for Hillary Clinton in two thousand sixteen that he's a democrat. He's not he's more middle of the road kind of guy. He would need to run as a Republican because there's no the papers not long enough to add another democrat to the race. I don't think it's a long list. But you know, I I asked Mark I said how? The world is the son of a truck driver grow up and have friends like Mark Cuban is I'm going to be launching this brand new speaker series at might alma mater Jetson university in elegant, and I would love to be my first guest to really kick this event off. And he said, let's let's do it in may about entrepreneurship in many ways and scholarships for diversity at the school. Right. Tell me about Judson and entrepreneurship now. That's a great question in Jetson is really starting to carve out in niche in terms of entrepreneurship entrepreneurial studies, they have their own version of shark tank and said, this is just another way to shed light on what they're doing in terms of entrepreneurship in diversity. And so Mark really understands that he's actually waving has about one hundred thousand dollars appearance fee. He's waving that to come out for free to make sure that we raise awareness and enough money. So every penny from ticket sales sponsorships every penny is going towards diversity NAFTA premiership scholarships for students at jets today. I like the idea like the idea of this new series. Ratio. Wish you great success added. A how do people find out more information? They can go to Judson, you dot EDU on the main page, and they can click on the conversations for.
