Trump to Piers Morgan: I'm 'making up for' not serving in Vietnam
"As the rule of seventy five years since d day, President Trump traveled to London for talks with British leaders, and in an interview on good morning Britain host Piers Morgan, asked Trump about his lack of military service in Vietnam. Fan of that war that war was not something. Generally. Have minded that at all. I would've been it but I think I make up right now I look for seven hundred billion dollars I gave last year, and then this year, seven hundred sixteen billion dollars. I think I'm making up for rapidly because we're rebuilding. Our
Buy the bullet: global defence spending
"Hello and welcome to the intelligence on economist radio. I'm your host. Jason Palmer every weekday. We provide a fresh perspective on the events shaping your world. The first of may brings out protesters all over the globe campaigning for better labor conditions. But in France weekly demonstrations by the so-called issue lay zone have been going on for months. Yesterday's mayday gatherings. Brought out a violent fringe that threatens the Jones message and president of annual Macron's attempts to address it. And we take a look at a new study that tries to measure, which English speaking country produces the most bullshit. But I. Last week. China's navy celebrated its seventieth birthday in grand style. As president Xi Jinping peered through binoculars into rain and mist a flotilla swept through the South China Sea. Nine. Winds there. What this moving you. Rose of white clouds, sailors stood on worships and saluted Mr. g who was aboard a brand new destroyer China has also boasted of its nuclear submarines and says it's building a new aircraft carrier America sees China as a growing rival, not just a military threat, but also economic one and the contest is being felt by America's closest allies in Britain yesterday. Gavin Williamson the Defense Secretary was fired by Prime Minister, Theresa may. He was accused of leaking details of how the country plans to let hallway a Chinese tech firm. Build part of its future five g mobile phone network. In response to that plan. America has threatened to cut back intelligence sharing with Britain. Beyond this America and China are leading the world in rearmament race. As a new report makes clear essentially the will to spending enormous sums of money on defense. Shizhong Joshi is economists defense editor this is the report by the Stockholm International Peace Research institute Cypriots Swedish thing Tang, and what it says this year is that global defense spending in twenty eight teen walls one point eight trillion dollars. Now, obviously that's a loss of money to put it in context of just how much it's the highest amount in real terms since sippy began this exercise in nineteen eighty eight and collecting these figures the end of the Cold War. It is seventy six percent higher than nine hundred ninety eight which was the peak of the post Cold War peace dividend when western countries began slashing on forces slashing spending. So you can see just how far we've come in the last twenty years. Also, just how much things have changed geopolitically and who's spending this one point eight trillion dollars, well essentially to. Countries are spending a leading the charge. That's America and China surprisingly America is heading shoulders above everyone else. It will spend about seven hundred sixteen billion dollars this year. That's significant increase from last year it out spends the next eight or so countries combined which gives you a sense of just how far ahead it is. Now, China is well behind spends a fraction of that. But it's military spending growing very quickly. It grew at an average of ten percent every year between two thousand and 2016 between two thousand fourteen in two thousand eighteen churned out. More ships ships with greater tonnage than the entire Indian Japanese navy. So that gives you a sense of just how rapidly they growing. And is this grew spread also among other nations or only American to the growing. It is great will that's provoking response. Particularly in Asia in Asia, for example, with seeing huge spurts among other countries. India for example, now. Spends more than any country in Europe. And I think Indians very proud of the fact that they are outspending not only countries like France, Germany, but also their old, colonial master Britain. Modern and invincible. Of whom stupefaction? Residency is Joel Indian skies ever own words. But Asia, Shirley, isn't the only place where governments want to to be up their defenses. No on Marshall Europeans. Have also been tooling up in recent years. They're obviously very worried by Russia, particularly after Russia's annexation of Crimea in two thousand fourteen they've been spending substantial amounts of quite quickly. If you're one single country its military spending would be four times that have Russia. In fact, it would be the second biggest military power in the world. So back to China, which has been spending money hand over fist as you say. But the their capabilities are still much much weaker compared to America's is there. Some sense of of when China might sort of outpace America will it'll be many many years before it can actually equal American spending. But I would say China gets to concentrate most of its military forces in its front garden in the western Pacific America has global commitments. So could we have a situation where Chinese forces in Asia? Outmatch American forces. Absolutely. We could have that very soon. Indeed. Depending on what America does depending on how China stretches capabilities so beyond America, China is is there anywhere where this would've frenzy of military spending. We'll kind of change the league table. I think we've seen a few changes taking place to Saudi Arabians in the Middle East have been spending huge amounts in the past ten years to the point where they are. Now, the third biggest spender in the world that obviously is going to have a major impact on the Middle East. If you look at Turkey, I think they've also been on a spending spree, and I think in Europe, one of the most interesting countries in eastern Europe, which of course, it's closer to Russia more about Russia's influence, and that's Poland. Police spending has been rising very quickly. They've been buying lots of American weapons, including an American Ed defense system, and they have been at the vanguard of some of this military spending spree in central and eastern Europe that we've seen in recent years. So looking at all these numbers is it's a global trend is everyone spending more. No, I think there's some pretty interesting places. West bending is is shrinking stagnating. The first example is the Middle East. Having said that Saudi Arabia. It was on this spending spree for the last ten years that slowing down. Sippy says that military spending the Middle East shrank by one point eight percent. In two thousand eighteen Saudi Arabia is planning on cutting spending after a number of years of growth, Iran is planning on cutting spending. Although we we don't have data for a few big countries like the United Arab Emirates and Casio. I think Africa's another good example military spending in Africa in two thousand eighteen shrink for the fourth consecutive year. And of course, as we know they're they're big protests in ALgeria and Sudan the military's under pressure from protesters to give way to civilians that could have an impact on on military budgets. I think finally the one I'd like to mention which is really interesting is Russia. Russia has modernized its armed forces over the last decade invested in lots of shiny new weapons. Sippy now says that his slowing. Down at that that boom in Russia is coming to an end. It's calculation say military spending in Russia shrunk by three and a half percent last year. Okay. Some of that could be to do with the fall of the ruble. This little probably spending a lot in ruble, terms. But I think what we all seeing is that the years of Russia plowing money into its military driven by oil that is slowly coming to an end, and that will have an impact, of course, on the European military balance. I mean, it's it's tempting to imagine that more spending on arms makes conflict more likely. There's just simply more more guns and weapons in more hands. What's your take on the Wilbur one really gave us a strong association between alms racing and conflict? We thought the Germans and the British and others competing supremacy. In your building up ships building up weapons and that played a role in contributing to willed, we'll one I think the political science the sort of social science around. This is a bit more complicated. I don't think there is necessarily clear connection between rapid arms racing. And outright conflict. Some people would say actually countries build up weapons, they feel they can deter their adversaries, they feel more secure. They don't feel the need to be vulnerable into lash out. So the association is complicated. What I would say is. I think there's a kind of cycle relationship between mistrust and building homes, the more countries don't trust each other like the US and China over China's island building and in competition in Asia, the more they build up weapons to prepare for the possibility of a clash the more. They build up weapons the less they trust each other. Thank you very much for coming in. Thank you very much.

"To gallery furniture. What happened? Why it happened? Jimmy Barrett sheriff fryer explain it now back to Houston's morning news. All right. Indeed. We continue Bob brand sitting in for Jimmy alongside Shera. Hope you ever the great morning today. So here's the deal and sheriff feel free to opine on this. I don't really want me opining at this hour always want to. Unless it's on die hard with it. Yeah. I mean, I don't think anybody could argue that the United States military is tasked with securing this country. That's job. It's job is security to make sure that it's people are safe to make sure that our our interests are safe to make sure that our homeland is protected, and we are supposed to be protected against invasion, foreign invasion. It does not have to be armed uniform wearing invaders it can just be invaders. It is their job to protect does do people realize how much extra money was put into the last defense budget a ton of extra money. Here's the here's what I'm talking about. This is from this summer citing last year. Forbes citing the the excuse me, the military budget last year, congressional Democrats did what might seem like a surprise. They voted overwhelmingly with Republicans for a massive defense authorization. Sixty percent in the house eighty nine percent in the Senate to approve a seven. Sixteen. This is for the fiscal year seven hundred sixteen billion dollar military spending Bill for twenty nine thousand nine fiscal year. The house passed the Senate passed it. That's eighty two billion dollars higher than the current budget was at that time, which was itself more than the Trump administration had requested. So if the Trump administration had requested an amount that was then exceeded by eighty two billion or more given what I just said that means there's a ton of extra money in the military budget that was not targeted or appropriated for specific military. Use in matters of equipment are matters of overseas necessities. And so on how why can we not take twenty five billion of that eighty two billion and say this is defense. This is national security. We have to make sure that we can repel boarders. Or in this case invade? Offers or illegal aliens crossing our borders. You don't this is this is what they do this military. Does why don't we just have the military build a dog on? Well, we don't have to make another nickel of requests in the federal budget or in these spending Bill share that the democrat. Then the Democrats can hold up anything. This is a military matter. Well, I was saying at the time back then when when the president, you know, reluctantly signed it, but he didn't he signed it with relish. And as you recall, he had the secretary of defense Mattis mad dog Mattis, they're being point man on all of this. So there was never a question in my mind that this was maybe some art of the deal that was going on. And now we've got Mattis stepping out. So was there a bone of contention over this? We we we may find out somewhere in the future. But I would still say this. If you want me to open line, indeed, we live on a border state that gets the the bulk of this invasion by illegal, the Democrats. And liberals had very effectively turned this to a people against people battle over the poor people just coming here for a better life. We see it more. I think in this state as the invasion that is organized, and it is groups, and it is activist and it is cartels. And this is nothing less than a true, invasion, military style. A form of terrorism. If you would and they're using the individuals the people as their soldiers for it. But that's not who's driving this. No, it's not. A military matter. I agree with every single word. And that's what I'm saying. I don't see how anybody could poke possibly object to that other than we hate Trump. So we're going to say, no, it's not anyway. But with with any reason with any logic with any common sense with any facts how anybody can debate that. And even if we don't want to phrase it that way that this is an invasion by foreign countries using citizens or non military personnel to be the invaders, even if you don't wanna phrase it that way, even if it is just. You know, literally, thousands and thousands, and quite frankly, there's roughly twenty two million illegals living in this country right now, not all of them invading across the border, some of them, visa, overstays and other things. But, but regardless of whether we term it that way, the point is this country has a right to protect itself, and to know who's coming and who's not, and if we can't control who's coming in who's not and vet who's coming and who's not because they're just skipping across the border or swimming across the river, or whatever the case might be. Then we have a right for national security purposes to protect that border and that fund those funds should very much come from the national security budget. I e the Pentagon budget. I think the president could put everybody back to work right now and the quarter government shutdown and put everybody back to work and say don't worry about it. I'm going to sign the CR that you guys gave me without any extra military funding. Or excuse me, any a border wall funding because we've got the border wall wall funds in hand eighty two billion dollars over what are requested budget was in the defense budget. Well, defense push will come to shove, you know, once we get through this holiday season and the people who are getting long furloughs right now and enjoying their holidays knowing they will get paid. Ultimately when they start feeling the pinch. Well, then you're going to see some action. And you know, if they don't pass something we don't know what all is in what they're trying to pass. You know, there is a lot of programs in a lot of Democrats who have plans in there in money that's coming to their districts that won't become into their districts. If they don't get this Bill passed. That's very true. That's very true. And then of course, there's going to be the conservative side was going to say wait a minute, by the way is continuing funding for Planned Parenthood in this Bill exam. Maybe we don't want. So so there are other issues as well. But as it pertains to this border wall, I'm waiting for the president to just say, we got the money don't worry about it. It's all good. I only needs twenty five billion number for this wall. They'd done the optics of the people the poor people at the border in your heart goes out to them. But don't forget the same. Organizers who were in those other countries bringing them here, they've got operational centres within our country and they're operating at basically as thugs and criminals. No question about it. It's five twenty four. Let's move on. Let's get you moving with your drive..

And this is what people are talking about congress talk about look man, we dropped the ball on repealing ObamaCare. We dropped the ball on the wall. Planned Parenthood is still funded. These are the things that got the president elected. But it won't just be the president that pays the price. The Republican party is going to pay the price Jill in Phoenix. Welcome to the conservative circus. Hijo? Would you would you would you continue to support the president? Even if he steps away from this latest promise. I will continue to support President Trump, regardless of death rates here because pretty much everything else that he said he was gonna do he dared, and I I'm just floored at everything going on right now with the house with congress. I just for data to I will step away from I will not support any of them. I I'm Jeff. So you're saying you support the president, but you will no longer support congress, especially Republicans in congress because of the way they'd be behaved the last two years year got it right there. That is exactly it. I mean, look what President Trump has done everything he said he was going to do. He did. Now, look at even today, the stock market look at everything drop have you noticed all of this stuff is going to heck. Jill you know, what it is not that. I want to you know, put on that tin foil hat, but yeah, isn't it amazing? How the fed has stepped in and talked about how they're going to raise interest rates. What how does the second time in how many months, and then threatening to do it again next year which purposefully put the brakes on the economy and Trump? Unlike other presidents have called them out is sort of like the deep state is working overtime to sabotage the success of this president. Let's go to Brian in Phoenix, Brian you're next to the conservative circus. We have Brian on the line. Brian welcome to the conservative circus. All right. Let me see this is right there. Okay. Let's go to Tim in Phoenix. Tim, a welcome to the conservative circus. Meena? Hey, hey. If this wall thing doesn't come through if the president steps back from his pledge of last week would he lose your support? No, absolutely not. I think people are overreacting about this. Trump has come through with more promises than any president in my lifetime as ever had. And he has Brian knows that fight him. He's got the nutty liberals Democrats at fight him. He's only one man. And would if that's the case. Deny anything you're saying, let me ask you this. If the president knows this he knows he doesn't have the vinyls. He knows he doesn't have the support of the establishment. Then why would he come out last week and say and say if I don't get this money for shutting down the government? I'll put it on my shoulders gladly do it only the back away yesterday. Well, that that was disappointing for sure, but he's also a salesman, and he might have been bluffing. But I think he's got an ace up his sleeve because he's gonna take money out of seven hundred sixteen billion dollar military budget and all of that. And you know, what the Democrats are saying today, they'll say that they'll blocked at every turn it woman that he's not allowed to do it even we even have cowl rove say he's not allowed to do that not not that. I believe I'll them because we watch President Obama do something similar reappropriated funds. But do you think that this deep state, and these Democrats and these establishment Republicans are going to let him do that? Well, they're gonna fight like heck did not let him, and they they definitely know how to fight in the trenches a whole heck a lot better than the Republicans because the Republican congress is spineless. And that's the real problem. That is the real problem. I agree with you one hundred percents that is the real problem. Six zero two two.

"You see how important it is. And so that is the focus making sure we take back. You know, we windows twenty three house seats, making sure that we protect those vulnerable Democrats in red states, making sure that we elect statewide state local candidates across the country, and I just wanted to add. I think it says a lot. In the question with the question. On Sarah Sanders and not being able to categorically deny and say, the president did not use the n. word which is really remarkable since we are living in two thousand eighteen that she was not able to do that. And we know watching Sarah Sanders this past year behind the podium in the White House in that White House press briefing room that she does stick her neck out in many, many times, even on things she doesn't. She's not sure that is true dot seem, you know, making her look like a liar, many times. And so for her to not say that he that she couldn't guarantee that the that he did not say the n. word I think, says volumes just watching Sarah Sanders this past year, I want to ask Alice one last question and we swore to each other leash. We were not gonna let this whole Amoroso gate. You take up the whole segment, but it's it is so compelling and I, first of all, I have to make a correction yesterday on the air. I think I said that on the campaign workers. Heard the tape. They did not. They heard about the tape and they were discussing what to do with the tape. But Alice, I, you know, I just wonder if anybody who watch the apprentice at all knows that I'm Rosa was always set up as the villain of that show. She was like the correlative ill of the apprentice, and then it was stunning to see the president embrace her and bring her into his campaign which makes me and you know, some people wonder, well, is there still maybe something like that going on now? I mean, how could he have hired morosi you know, given the way speaking about her now and given the role that she played a villain, maybe there's something else going, do you worry that there's another shoe to drop about the relationship between these two people? In my view, I, I have you'd their relationship. A is a mutual admiration society which they've cashed in their membership, but she used him and he used her. She used him to have access and power, and to be able to certainly be able to have. Wedding showers at the White House, and he used her as a way to bridge into the African American community and give the appearances that he is trying to make inroads with that community and it. It's not a surprise that we've had to former reality TV stars for all intensive purposes or backstabbing, fame seeking money, grubbing people in the stars of collided. I, I don't trust on Russa any more than I trust the a lot of things that have happened here. But if she had a tape of this, I can't imagine that she wouldn't have already released it. So I, I don't believe a lot of what she says, but if she can produce a tape, then we're in a whole different. She's trying to get the tape from the apprentice. So we'll let let's let that one go. At least let's move onto President Trump signed a seven hundred sixteen billion dollar defense Bill on Monday. The Bill is named after Senator John McCain here, the president is speaking yet for Trump. After years of devastating cuts were now rebuilding our military like we never have before. We want to note that the president made no mention of Senator McCain who is undergoing treatment for brain cancer. He issued the what's called a signing statement where he objected to four of the eight provision in the Bill. This is just after he signed the Bill and they have to do with Russia. Corinne. I wonder what you and how you would advise Democrats to respond to that caveat. I mean, it's not surprising. His relationship with Russia is, you know, incredibly troubling because Russia's clearly our adversary, they attacked the cyber attack our election as we all know two years ago in two thousand sixteen and they continue to do so, I and I have to say something about John McCain him not even mentioning John McCain. You don't have to be a Republican or or democrat is not a partisan issue. John McCain is a is a hero. He was literally blown out of the sky..

Former Bush doctor killed on bike was likely targeted, cops say
"News I'm Mark garrison and for Bo Interesting developments in this murder in Houston of. A prominent heart doctor who was. Gunned down on. A bicycle, let's. Go, live, to Texas. Now ABC's Jim. Ryan good morning. Jim hey Mark The crime, happened one week ago. Today Dr Mark house connect he's a cardiologist well known around the Houston area well known a rum cardiac, circles around, the country a former doctor to ex president George H W Bush he was riding his bike to work again in one week ago today when another bicyclist came alongside him passed him then stopped turned. Around and fired into the body of Dr house. Can hit, him. Three, times Oh wow yeah house died right, to then, and there he was rushed to the hospital. Not too far away but it, was it was too late to, that point so this crime has gone unsolved for a week despite the presence of quite a. Bit of surveillance, video. And images that have been published including images. Of the shooter himself riding along on his bicycle with a big green backpack on his back, new you, can make out a lot of features this guy and yet they're still have been. No arrests and as far as we know no. Suspects even, question about this but. There's some word this morning that now they're at least? Saying that the doctor, was targeted it wasn't. Random correct doesn't look like it was a random. Thing, I don't think anything was even taken from, him as he was lying there, bleeding to death the. Houston police chief yesterday tweeted that there is a high probability that the doctor was targeted those are the, words are, the police chief himself so they're they've broadened their investigation they've changed tactics a bit who did This Dr know who were some of his patients did. He have a, grudge. Share did did anyone have a grudge against. Him so it's much more beyond just a random crime to looking at some sort of conspiracy, Mark and, have yeah and I guess from what we're finding out they must know more than. They're telling if if if the police chief is. Pretty adamant, that yeah he was. Targeted but but won't say anything else You're onto, something yeah Twitter is is kind of a nice. Way to do that because the? The? The tweet went on to say no? Other information is available etcetera so he didn't hold a news conference something or something you know didn't answer. Questions. About it he just put out the tweet, saying it looks as though he was targeted now certainly he's trying to keep up interest in, this, case although interests, around Houston is very high anyway Both. Because of the prominence of this person because. Nobody's, been caught five. Thousand dollar. Reward for information that leads to an arrest so far though the shooter has gone undetected unquestioned apparently plus away the crime. Happened is so interesting I mean it is almost as if he knew the doctor house connect. Would be on a bicycle at a certain time and he goes bicycling besides him. Beside, him and then passes him and turns around and opens fire that's a very. Unusual way to assassinate somebody yeah and certainly right it looks it looks as though they knew what his route was. Going, to be that he would be riding his bike to work you only lives about a half mile away from, the hospital where he was, practicing. That day and so it looks as though this was, well planned, and and quite literally executed. Now the the pictures of the suspect, that are out the ones I had seen. It looked like it would be hard to identify the. Guy or there's some that are better now Well there's one yes there was taken from a boss say Houston transit Bosnia they all have surveillance cameras it's remarkable how many cameras there are yeah yeah so. You know, what they what the police have to, end up doing. Yes they look at the crime. Scene they, look at bullet casings and all the rest but they also look around neighborhoods for the presence of cameras they, look at bus routes to see if a, bus that might have a surveillance camera came trolling by. Ensuring up did so and they're obviously also. Making, appeals for anybody. Else who. Might have dashboard cameras lift drivers often have them in and that could have picked up something but this more clearer image. Does come from the transit from a boss and it shows him riding what appears to be. Kind of a silver ten speed wearing a white hat Tim gane khaki shorts green. Shirt, and and this big backpack on his back and okay so there is a. Little more for them to go one that's that's good all right it is certainly a bizarre crime And of, course, this doctor was pretty famous having, treated, president, George, H. W Bush right yeah I. Mean there are pictures every time the. Story. Runs. There there is a picture of famous picture of Dr house connect standing? There. In his lab coat standing there. Alongside George H W Bush and they're having a, laugh and Bush had all sorts of respect for him he. Tweeted out condolences to the family and and shock on his own part that this was letting had happened to not only his. Position but to his friend and you know they've been volunteers all over the, neighborhood where this happened friends of Dr house connect he was well known. Well respected as a as a cardiologist well liked among the people in, the neighborhood where he lived and in the places where he was working really a mysterious crime Jim thank. You so much thank, smart Yep, ABC's Jim Ryan in Texas so it was a. Week. Ago today that a well known heart doctor Dr house connect. Was pedaling to. Work at. A prestigious medical center and Hughes Guy pedals. By him on. Another bike then, turns around and opens fire and kills him, and the only major, development? Now. Is the, police chief Aaron Houston is saying this was a. Targeted attack against that Dr not saying how he knows that but that is somewhat of a breakthrough now they've just got to figure, out who it is flying had a grudge against the doctor it's eleven minutes.
