Fresh "macron" from John Batchelor
"In finance with the French presidency, so he's introduced to the center of the center. He marries Bridget in 2000 and seven He's a man on the gull and then in 2000, and he makes the decision to join Rothschild's, which is why he gets a reputation among the politicians as the banker. What does That time at Rothschilds in which he did very well, making a deal that made him a million euro your reporting here. What did he learn? What does you remember from being a banker, But I think it's you know, there's those who had identified my car as being a future. Politicians saw it as a time when he was making contact, and he was making some money for himself so that he wouldn't Have to rely on others, and I think that that is what comes away from talking to people as I did, who worked with him at the time that he didn't want to be beholden to anybody. He's this is somebody who wants to be his own person. He doesn't want to be in anyone's debt, and that part of you know the earning of the money. Was to make sure that he could leave the life He wants to lead without having to be owned. Or oh, anybody. And I think that that you know that that as much as the context that he made as much as you know, reputation he was beginning to earn for himself that that is what comes away. When I come away with from from those those years he spent at Rothschild's investment bank. He rejoins of the politics the political life because he's introduced a mutual friend, a senior mentors friend, a diplomat to Francois Hollande. Who will become president of France and invite of the young Emmanuel Macron into what we call an American administration to the palace and depart and five and finance is always the Finance Ministry. But strikingly these many years later, Holon remembers macron on unhappily. Why so well, ultimately because macron betrayed Francois Hollande. You know, this is a guy who joined from school loans team before when nobody believed that Holland was capable of winning that election. That he then went to work for him and was did a great job at the Eliza Palace. To the extent that Hollande then promoted him to become economy minister that propelled him into the public eye. Don't forget nobody really knew him. But he was just an advisor, But there he was a launch of set him off, given him a public position in government. And that was when macron really begun to sort of become a household name in France. Well, you know, it was then. Well, Holland was still president that macron decided having occupy this job for a couple of years that he was going to set up this This This instance of this organization? Whatever. We didn't know what it was this thing called R Marsh. It wasn't really a political party. But you know, with retrospect, it was very clearly the first step on the way to macron running for the presidency, which he ultimately did He quit government and having said to alarms, You know, this is just a think tank. This is just a sort of you know, Uh, this isn't a political party. It's just a movement. He then turned it into a vehicle for running for the presidency and In doing so made it absolutely impossible for Francois Hollande to run himself. There wasn't there wasn't a space for him to do it. So I think in that respect, you know he was. Holland was his mentor, and then Macron turned and ran against him. The Decision to form on marsh on the go on the move Philosopher on the move is April of 2016. And the significance there is that he found that it Ami on even though he has no intimate relationship with the Senate, adding more. I believe his father lives there, but most of his family's moved away. Is two siblings. His sister and his brother are no longer there. I believe, but what's important is a year later in the presidential contest, and when we come back A critical revelation of macron is, um takes place and the contest with marine Le Pen in the spring of 2017.

"Of Revolution Francais. And this is the story of the president of France. Emmanuel Macron, who is extremely well educated and, in fact graduated from the supremely important state, a school college university in France. That brings us all of the leadership of France. He graduated. It's called the E N A. The the National Administration school where they train the leadership. But He comes from us A red Brooke working class city. A man in the north and Sophie introduces us in 1977 with the birth of young Emmanuel Jean Michel Frederic Macron to the fact that a man had had a communist mayor. For 20 years. What is it in a million that the French would know immediately? That coming from their means you're one kind of thing. What? What? What do we understand about the town, Sophie? Working town a lot of industry in the past industry that's closed, so a sort of sense of decline. On the one hand, it's also part of the summits in the battlefield, So I think that's also part of its, uh, identity. I think it's seen as, uh, you know, part of an area of France that has been in decline, and that has struggled. It's not. This is not such a smart Sheikh, uh, you know, suburbs of Paris or or, um, the left bank intellectuals familiar? It's really much more sort of an average kind of town. Mom and dad are both physicians and Dad remains a physician. You say As a public publication of this book, his his grandparents are even more compelling. I believe one of his grandparents, his paternal grandfather. Was an Englishman who married a French woman following the first words that do I remember that correctly? So of eating you do it. You do. He was in English. He was a butcher from the town of Bristol in England, who had come over to France during the fight during the first World War and ended up marrying the French. The French woman, does he she met there. And and that was that's that That's part of Emmanuel Macron's inherited. Yeah, that's the father, but the mother and beg pardon if I mispronounced the no gays? No, the no case family. That's right. Uh, they, the grandmother and the mother. Those are the interesting lines that we need to follow the grandmother, her mother. In other words, Emmanuel Macron's great grandmother cannot read a ride. His grandmother then devotes herself to being an educator, a teacher and headmistress, and that's Monette and the mother. Francois is a physician doesn't practice physician of a doctor ship. She's a social worker. And so he has a mom and dad who are doing very well in a million, And you say that it's a comfortable life there, skiing there their music lessons, and that's why Emmanuel Macron knows his music. He can debate Bach versus Motors are just on a whim. That's who he is. All right. But he spends his childhood in books with his grandmother. Manette. What does that mean to him? What does it mean to Monette? Well, I think what has came through to me through and talking to people who know knew him as a child who were at school with him that this was an unusual child. He was clearly sociable and had friends, but he also spent a huge amount of time by himself. Reading and with his grandmother, who became such an important influence in his life. I mean, I think she's she made. She found a way to channel or that interest into reading and into books, and they were incredibly close to each other. I think it's sort of important not to give an idea that this was, you know, a tough childhood. I mean, Anya is a working class town, but he got a minimum. Michael did go to the private Catholic school there. There is a kind of Bush Um, element to the town, and that's that's where he That's where he grew up. So this wasn't this wasn't a time of sort of deprivation. In any sense. This was a comfortable background as you said, and this relationship with the grandmother was, it was extraordinary, even to the point where a few weeks ago as president now in his fourth year, Emmanuel Macron went back to the school where his grandmother Was headmistress and talked to teachers that were still who are still there who remembered her and that I think just chose to you quite what a strong bonds. It was that the two of them forged and which led to the real sort of literary awakening for the young macron. He's an intense reader and his grandmother reads to him. She recent millionaire I I'm in awe of a grandmother who receive mode here in the afternoon when you could be out playing tennis, but he had in high school and love pro. They call it LA Pro. His high school jazz talked by Jesuits, he meets his drama teacher. She's not as immediate teacher she runs a drama class, and that is Brigitte. And the way you presented. There's some mystery to this. But immediately the teenager, the 15 and 16 and 17 year old becomes devoted to Bridgette and she returns his affection. Eventually. That's the unusual twist here if I really correctly now All these years later, Brigitte and Emmanuel, remember this matter? It's important to them. How so, Sophie? What? Well, we have a minute before we turn to Macron is, um what? What did they remember about those first years together? Yeah. I think that what happened into their relationship, which was clearly shocking to a lot of people. She was married. She had three Children. The it was the bonds that brought them together. They it was so, uh, it was. It was so unsettling for the both of their families. That I think it helped them build a kind of shell around themselves and a bond that has lasted and it has been a a way of resisting all the difficult things that have happened since before the presidency and during the presidency. I think they built the shell at which is sort of protected them. I think appreciate provides you a quote where she says that We? We got to be tough because of the derision. In fact, his parents went to her. I believe at one point and asked her to break off until he was 18. So she and Emmanuel Macron and Brigitte Whose name at the time she was part of a family are well to do family. They make chocolates. They still make chocolates and Amazon. They learn to close to take care of themselves. And so we're now going to go to the back to the politics. Because now we have a, uh, a precocious son of the friends, provinces. But how does he come to the center of French power? The palace? The book is Revolution Francais. Sophie Petr is the author. Request.

"I mean, sometimes the way to think of Johnny Halliday, who actually is a Belgian origin, but the French adopted him. He sort of the French Elvis Presley. I mean, that's only a little bit of an exaggeration, but just to give you a sense of how much this meant to people, and he had it was indeed live on TV, and you had Harley Davidsons coming down the channels of easy in honor. These were his supporters, Johnny Halliday supporters so Macron. It'd have set this whole thing up. He understood that This was part of the the more populous as a cultural identity of France. And in a way, I think that that again was to surprise people it was to to try and build a two sides of what he thought. French national cultural identity was all about. It was this philosophy and intellectual thinking, as well as literally higher, high high end literature on the one sign, but on the one hand, But it's also about being in touch with popular culture and people who the French really had taken to hearten, and I think that's what he was trying to do with that extraordinary speech. An athlete dexterous athlete. A man who can talk about Paraclete in public and not smile and a man who can celebrate Johnny Halliday. That is macron, but we need to go back to the beginning. Where he came from, and his influences in a provincial town of Paris and industrial provincial town. So if the Petr is the author, she is the book is Revolution Francais. Request for to reinvent a nation. This is Emmanuel Macron, the the current president of France, whom we can presume will run for re election within the year. And when we come back December of.

And it's a fascinating thing to watch for a number of reasons, because you know, the military industrial complex is a very real thing. Dwight David Eisenhower warned us about it many years ago. Joe Biden is the military industrial complex candidate, obviously, and you know Barack Obama and he's going to be there poodle and he doesn't know what's going on. He's the guy that led to the complete withdrawal of American troops from Iraq, which led to the rise in the spread of Isis and the genocide of the Yazidis and the industrial scale rapes and decapitations and enslavement. And you know that was Joe Biden's contribution to the world while he was vice president. Pretty amazing stuff. But he's definitely the military industrial complex figure that President announces he's drawing down the number of troops by January. 15th Inauguration day, of course, January 20 and it's um It's remarkable to watch now Dan Crenshaw, who I like and have respect for all I know people that aren't such big fans of his butt.

It honestly is And we'll get We'll get into that in the elections. We've got all kinds of things going on in the elections as well. Ah little stop and start. Go stop go situation in Michigan yesterday when a county went to certify their election, the news media you'll be surprised to learn, has blamed the Republicans for the hick up there. That's a big surprise. The Um Um uh, Democrats should Democrats away. We got Lindsey Graham is under under attack because he gave a fist bump to Campbell Harris, which I guess means Secret. Secret code of some kind of secret code ball of some kind going on there, and Emmanuel Macron macron. As from much as he is known in French and then you'll not grown is the president of all of France, which is another country altogether. And they get lots of radical Islamic jihadi terrorist mass murders of innocents. Decapitations of elderly women and things like that. And Emmanuel Macron was doing an interview of magazine interview and he went after the U. S news media. The American news media for legitimizing the left wing violence in the streets of the United States of America. Emmanuel Macron is on the side of reason and even brought up the Enlightenment, which I always do. And how the Democrats in the media in America are anti enlightenment, their anti free speech they want to regulate speech criminalized speech because they're really little fascists. This is Lefty's You know, Herr Hitler's party was the Socialist Workers Party. After all, just by the way. Then again, it would have met what Macron said. I don't think I've ever agreed with macron in the past, but now we have a point of agreement myself and French President Emmanuel Macron. He from Munch, Isn't he in French? All Francais All francais?

"The wrong way. But what's your sense of what he sees as France's role in those places where France was formerly the colonial occupier? It's a very interesting question because I think my call Stan on this very sensitive issue of France's role in its former colonies I essentially in west Africa in grab is quite midland. On the one hand very much in line with traditional French foreign policy we were once colonizers. Colonizers, of course, but we want to keep very close ties with those countries and of course, for obvious economic political and military reasons for that is no change. I think they all did it meet the on Chirac South Jersey were all in line with the sort of again, very earliest way of looking out former colonies and relationship with them. But I think it is also swore to be in a number of occasions where Michael has acted very differently from his predecessors and I think inaudibly when it comes to the French colonial past. which hasn't been to date very much debated at least in the media in the French. Even. In terms of inner, how the spares is taught to youngsters in schools in France and particularly the Vaccine Newell Geria- and I think that is been the kind of liberal modernizer president that some hoped to find when he was elected three years ago and unfriendly. If you take a jerry, he's been very first president to acknowledge that. Yes. France had misbehaved in Algeria notably it's the military. There was the ones who formerly acknowledged widespread use of torture in Jerry which no president before including left wing president Mitterrand would have absolute knowledge. You weren't as meeting the widow of Mogi Soda who was a young, very well known in France young communist activists, and if sympathizer who was arrested tortured and killed by the French military -nology so that meeting was symbolically in my opinion very strong and of course, you don't make yourself any friends by doing that because, of course, mainstream of the political class and also a lot of French media didn't like it so. From time to time east surprises, the people around him but. On, the whole I would say there's no changes very much to sort of traditional Stan. You know this used to be our colonies were no longer the colonizers but. We have vested interests there to defend a won't be any different from the previous president. So, if we we've also seen him taking a lead in places which are less obviously Francis Sphere of influence recently, obviously speaking up on behalf of those demonstrating against President Alexander Lukashenko in Belarus. He ordered naval craft and aircraft to Greece to make some sort of gesture of defense against Turkey dispute over mineral rights in the eastern Mediterranean, what do you think he sees his role very is he leading France EZE asserting himself was the de facto leader of Europe the Western World in general why does he think all of those things are his problem or his department? Well it's an age old problem in. France where age all at least as far as post era under googlers, and that's the tension between what is the French perception of the European interest in what's other Europeans perception of the European interest and that's a constant source of tension in French. Foreign policy making not just under macron. But I mean it does underlie that macron very much to speak on behalf of Europe in his dealings in the near neighborhood and all those. That you mentioned the reason that he feels he has to intervene is that this is on Europe's doorstep to whether it's Turkey eastern Mediterranean. Obviously, even Lebanon and certainly Russia Belarus. These are issues that directly impact Europeans, and the stability of this region is a source of major concern people around Micron very worried when they look at the role that Turkey's playing and obviously rush Surrey's longer running issue but if You look at Macron's behavior elsewhere or his way which he puts in place foreign policy when he went to China last year for example, he very much wind twenty European is his trip. He wanted to send a message that this wasn't just the French president speaking this a European voice he took with him a German minister. For example, he took them a European Commissioner as well. So I think that you have. That constant tension and sometimes it blows up. It can be very difficult to Cleveland across Russia policy has caused a lot of anxiety in. Baltic. States and Eastern Europe places that feel very much threatened by an assertive Russia and macro. When he makes comments like he did to the economists last year that he said that NATO was in a state of brain death, those countries in the east of Europe that rely. On the North Atlantic security umbrella I feel extremely have felt extremely uncomfortable and macron starts making those sorts of remark. So one of the reasons he was in Lithuania recently was Detroit and calm. There's fierce. He met we had split liner to Connor Sky in the Belarus opposition leader specifically to try to ensure that he wasn't just supporting a less Atlanta system motor pro Russian position, but his efforts to start up. Dialogue with Russia do make people uncomfortable there, and so I think the will be that was has been up to a point this conflict or at least tension between what the French think is the European interest and what some of his fellow Europeans think it is. Philippe. I know we have been talking about foreign policy here and we will talk about foreign policy more shortly but I'm just wondering if you think there's any part of macron that figures that what he's doing in terms of foreign policy is necessary to the execution of his domestic policy. Now, the name of Charles de Gaulle has come up a few times already this episode funnily enough and the goal as you probably know once wrote that and I quote France, he's not really herself unless in the front rank, only vast enterprises are capable of counterbalancing the ferments of dispersal which are inherent in her people. Yes quite. Think. There are some differences between the two men different times to start with. It was the star of the then e C first name given to the U., and there was no such thing. As you know, the major powers, we're not together with the US China India. They were not at the time major political power. So it's a different world and France. Could still play this card of being allegedly or arguably even a major. That's no longer the case that's why I think you've got a number of people in France now saying, well, hang on it's all very fine. That's SORTA the activism on the world stage but probably issued pay more attention to what goes on in our big issues economy social. There's the. COVID Nineteen Crisis Sword I think this is also another difference at the time of the goal. The goal was not very much hands on type of presidents would not get involved in day-to-day political affairs. You will concentrate on foreign affairs. McCoy doesn't have this luxury. Now you need absolutely to step in on regular basis and dress the nation to speak about very. Mundane issues such housing, the number of beds and hospital I think the goal would have never done that and I think that's why I think it's a little bit of more difficult in a sense for my corny shouldn't probably overstate is recalled the whatever your attempts to do an awkward stage because I don't think all sort of consolidated its position for reelection. Sophie as a final thought as macron contemplates, he's geo-strategic. Chessboard might there be any part of metal that he's kind of hoping Donald Trump gets reelected because there has been a gap obviously American global leadership. These laws full years macron has clearly not been shy about urging. France, to fill that gap, would he see a more reengaged United States as a partner role perhaps even arrival? He's somebody who's pragmatic and he is an opportunist as well and I would say that he will work with whichever American president is elected and he tried to do that with trump i. don't think for a moment although he could never say so that he would want the reelection of trump but I also think that he doesn't date disengagement of America from Europe and from interested in. The North Atlantic alliance to trump you know he under Obama. We already saw that beginning to happen with the pivot to Asia, and I think that the French are very conscious of that macron don't forget was in the presidency working as an advisor to Francois loaned at the time when Obama laid down the red line about use of chemical weapons in Syria, and then in the end didn't. Act and that's stayed in macron's mind was a very strong moment for him and understanding I, think the use of threat and how you can't make empty threats you have to be for them through. So I don't think that they would be expecting even under president. Biden. For there to be a major shift in the solder structural way in which the US relates to Europe and equally I. Don't think macro himself is supped narcissists that he would see only a sort of downside to having a stronger American leadership on the global stage. You know France finds itself. Often when he talked to advisers in the you find there's a sense of frustration that it's so difficult to find partners to work with at the moment at least he's trying I mean this is something that you feel. That brexit has made Britain pretty absent on the world stage America America's the same urkel is around but not for so much longer and I think the French need partners they want partners whether it's dealing in the near neighborhood or or further afield. So I think that the French would work well with the President Biden if that's the outcome macro would be pragmatic enough to try and keep going despite all the difficulties that international relations present at the moment.

"President Emmanuel Macron is not unique among French leaders in entertaining grandiose notions about his country's singular place in the world charles-de-gaulle believed that France cannot be France without greatness and wrote of its exalted and exceptional destiny for Napoleon. The word impossible is not French. Emmanuel macron is a banker by background rather than a warrior, but he seems to share with his swashbuckling predescessors. The conviction that France is a great power and should behave like one in recent months alone macron has met with the Democratic opposition leaders of Belarus dispatched warships and fighter jets to Greece as it butts heads with Turkey and perhaps most startlingly invited himself to Lebanon within forty eight hours of the warehouse explosion which devastated. Beirut. In August, all of which is to say nothing Francis outreach economic and military to its former colonies in West Africa. Last month macron. told the UN General Assembly that the world as it is today cannot come down to a rivalry between China and the United States macron appears to have a firm idea of at least one of the nation deserving of a seat at the top table. But what does Emmanuel macron see as France's role and the reasons that France should play it? This is the foreign desk. Sides is tremendous self confidence and self belief and attempt explain Michael's standing foreign affairs to look at the way he positions themselves very much in line with disproportional French way being the well and seeing the place of France in the world think which again comes from Charleston gold and this typically. French here you bring. Will European and International Initiative. To bring money on out directly to people. A chance indepth. What is today at because? All The fear and. Anger you have. He's against politicians. He does have something of a track record of being swayed people do think in particular when you look at foreign policy, it's founded question and it's important to understand the way in which you know he persists see keeps going he's never quite given up that hope that he might be able to be the one to persuade a foreign leader to behave in a different way. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew my guest today are Sophie pedder and Philippe. Malia. Philly. Malia is a professor of French and European Politics at University College London and Sophie Pedder is Paris Bureau chief for the Economist and author of revolution full say Emmanuel Macron and the quest to reinvent a nation Sophie I'll start with you. Is there a way you can define Emmanuel macron's broad foreign policy vision is there a macron doctrine? I think I would start by putting it in the context of Europe and how he sees France and Europe and European the world I think that that his starting point I think that he sees the rise of China as a world power, the disengagement or at least the sort of volatility of the United States on the other hand and the need for Europe to exist as a geopolitical forces in the world in the face of this, and then he sort of situates that in the sense of the sort of instability in the immediate neighborhood around Europe Turkey Middle East etc, and I, think the everything that he's been trying to. Do in Europe is about reinforcing Europe's ability to act as a strategic player in the world, and he sees that in a very traditional French way I think, as your amplifier of the French voice you know in Britain we often find that quite difficult to understand but in France, it's absolutely standard. Foreign Policy Doctrine is that Europe is a way in which France can amplify his voice and be heard in the world. So I think you know everything that macro has done and some of it is controversial. Some of it less so is about to my mind strengthening Europe on the basis of the franco-german relationship and making Europe a sovereign. Geostrategic and increasingly autonomous player in the face of a sort of shifting world as we it Philippe? Do you think it's all straightforward and utilitarian even or do you think macron perceives it? There's some sort of French values underpinning his foreign policy outlook that he wants to project to the world. I think there's always a mix of ideas idealism I would even say or ideology because I don't think it'd be to piecemeal to call it a doctrine but ideas for sure and of course, also the par the other side is what's best for France. You know because, of course, a statesman's and the president of a country such as Franz doesn't do it just for purely out reasons where he goes to some. Foreign countries or propose some help. It's also how best serve the French interests and I agree with Sophia. Traditional French way at least since the goal to use the the you really as a way to amplify France's political way to. Say I think the critics in France and outside of France strays that with Michael Michael Punches above its weight and France's political weights in the world by doing what he does because of course, he's undertaking where you're going to discuss that I'm sure is being seen to take an interest in various parts of the world and very intricate. Issues and I think that's probably a departure with his predecessors Sofi Macron as you will obviously know better than most people having literally written the book is not. Generally a man who comes across as lacking in confidence in his own abilities. How much of his foreign policy outlook in his foreign policy projection is based on the belief in himself as somebody able to accomplish things on the world stage listen interesting one, this one and I. Think you know foreign policy analysts don't like to personalise over personalized international relations but I think you're macron's cases for at least looking at the way he has tried to play some of the fellow world. Leaders since he was elected. If you think back to twenty seventeen when he first took office the first meeting with Donald Trump remember the knuckle crunching handshake. If you think back to the first time, he welcomed Vladimir Putin to side. This was extraordinarily such a grand setting a former royal palace to welcome the Russian leader it was I, think all about trying to use a form of flattery, a form of personal chemistry in order to try and bring pressure to bear on foreign leaders. That has had mixed effects and there's two examples are good ones because I'd not sure it's. Very easy to point to anything much that microbes be able to extract from trump three and a half years down the line and from Putin as well. It's it's been an extremely mixed pattern, but I think that it.

In fact, McCaw says reference to protections against the US was a reference to cyber intelligence capabilities in any event, it was a typical Trumpian move designed to get attention which it did. I asked Macron weather a clash between him and Trump was inevitable. We had a very good discussion to s- moaning, and in confirmed an front of suppress said he was he was a K. I think there's that mean that his tweet was a mistake. His tweets, and I always prefer having thyroid discussion or answering questions at making my my diplomacies tweets bets that I think we had a very clear discussion e is in favor of a bitter burden-sharing with within native. I agree with that. And I think that's not to have a better better sharing. Office do need more Europe. And I think there's a big mistake would to be very direct. 'cause you what I don't want to see is European countries. Increasing the budget in defense in order to by Americans on other arms all Matt tales coming from your industry. I think if we increase other jet is to have to build our autonomy and to become net whole sovereign border from credibility TV's viane people in the visa rest of the word. And I think it's for I think you'll prison is riots regarding that, and I think I'm right to precisely promote this idea one. I do believe is that if at this stage Europe has to become a more consistent and most suffering IMO United in democracy far. And today, it's not it's a case, we build something very. Original during the past seven decays bets. Arisen new step for wall to be organized. And this is a case today. Let me ask you about your relationship with Donald Trump. He says that now that he's he's made up with you. After the tweet he says, you have lots in common. And I'm wondering what that is. Because he calls himself, a nationalist he draws on this populace forces, and you describe yourself often as one of the great opponents of these forces of nationalism in populism. So what do you think you have in common? That Botha's outsider of the classical positions. I would say and arrive from from the business side. He was not the favorites. And it was an unexpected candidates. And I was pretty mentioned the situation in France hubby because we'll very much in line in the fight against terrorism, and we would very closely together following this this line. We know where we disagree, and we offer right for that on climate on trade on the internet. But we we work very well together because we have ferry wriggle on direct discussions. But obviously, you rights I would say I'm patriots. I do believe in the fact that peep out people are very important and having French people is different from John. German people. I'm not a believer in sort of thump. Globalise in without in differentiation. I think it doesn't it's very inconsistent. And it's extremely it makes people very nervous. But I'm not an a nationalist. Which is different for me from being the patriots. I do defend my people, I do defend my country. I do believe that we have a strong identity, but I must hung believer in cooperation between the different peoples. And I'm assume believer of the fact that this corporation is good for everybody where the nationalists. I'll sometimes mush more. Based on the union approach and is a low of the strongest which is not my case. Pull up y'all difference. Do you think it matters to have a personal relationship with Donald Trump because of all foreign leaders? You certainly seems to warm toward you..

"I'm not down on your paper paper for dramatic effect limited the problem that makes a noise love it has read the news today leaders he preferred to talk to leaders he didn't and might have a different a different on the margins. Right there'd be like I remember you know you could be outside the oval and there'd be like always on a call with this person it's going to be Merckel and macron laughing about it what a dumb fuck we put in the White House also by the way it's we we're pulling for the foreign leader to pull one over on it if he does that means you know maybe he convinced have those issues they had to go she added a lot of those issues are not relevant to a nuclear deal like if the United States all of a sudden some trading partner came to us and said hey are sure you want something longer than a ten years we'll go prove that you can get that kind of deal go work on it that's the whole point like can you get that and that was the whole problem with the criticism of the OBAMAS deal in the first place doing bad things in Syria in their funding a rebel group in Yemen against like yes the Obama administration had the same exact concerns with those things but there's no reason to tear up the Iranian nuclear deal which is about nuclear weapons to get those things dealt with it's just not really appoint of leverage and he's and he's going about it in a stupid way it's just it's so self defeating let's move from one potential nuclear disaster to another North Korea Kim Jong Hoon said this weekend he would suspend nuclear missile tests North Korea has apparently dropped its demand the US removed troops from South Korea as a condition for giving up nuclear weapons and north and South Korea are set to meet this week how big of a deal is this has trump tweeted his way to peace so the the reporting on this is all over it really is I think trump claimed that North Korea degree to denuclearize but that's not true they said they essentially suspend nuclear tests and suspend CBS tests ahead of the summit so they would suspend testing of nuclear what have they done this before they pause before a freezes its unless you take some very concrete steps it's a easily reversible thing like hey we didn't test a icbm today literally just not testing isn't exactly it doesn't mean they're not going to continue their nuclear weapons program but the north has for a very long time said that its idea of denuclearization is essentially they'll get rid of their nuclear weapons if we remove all troops from the Korean Peninsula and we get rid of our nuclear umbrella our policy of protecting South Korea and Japan so that's a big lift and what Kim Jong Un saying is essentially trump apparently according to Wall Street Journal is going to say to him you have to dismantle nuclear arsenal before you get sanctions relief it's not a sanctions relief for a free he's of nuclear tests and missile tests which is what happened before we've given them you know that they've said that they'll it's called a freeze for freeze will freeze they freeze testing and we will freeze sanctions or give them some relief on grain subsidies or of the hell it would be and then they just do it anyway so that was where Bob Gates would always say you can't buy the same horse twice ruined what's non which is always true with trump right you like okay is trump lying is he ostentatiously mischaracterizing with some kind of purpose is the purpose to ferry career lying Lila too so it's a bunch of people live but then I my my feeling about it was that it actually doesn't really matter because the difference between ally the truth in this case about what they're saying they're willing to give up is all just posturing anyway ultimately this is about a bunch of kind of markers people are setting down before talks begin and before you know the contrary of whatever a deal would be would before we learn what the contours of an eventual deal could possibly look like at some point in the future I have to say like you know coming away from this. sort of coming around to saying we don't know and I think we should be humble about North Korea specifically because I do not believe right now that the trumpet minutes Craciun is doing very poorly and certainly not doing worse than an Obama Administration or Clinton administration or Bush administration I think it has it's the chaos and and nonsense of trump but ultimately what we're talking about is seemingly intractable problem and there does seem like there is real movement and that is something no I mean they're not doing worse but this confusion that we're talking about right now is why you sort out the terms of what these head of state level talks are going to be before you have the hawks and if trump really thinks he's going to go into this thing and charm Kim Jong UN out of his nuclear weapons which he views as the most critical thing is he's forgetting the fact that this is the Doodoo like you know he murderers senior officials who piss them off by shooting them with anti-aircraft guns or any saw us as a as a cool aspect so to your point like there have been you know during the Clinton administration they were high level meetings and there was a temporary freeze that they cheated on the certainly in the Bush administration as well there were six party talks happened you bomb ministration so we're in this cycle of boom and bust of activity I'm really really glad that they're pushing for more activity I support it but like there I'm in the trump administration so far it seems like they are doing something a little different in reasonable we went through this with the whole dreamers debate to maybe this is like normal and he's GonNa actually get it deal on this whatever and then like they end up disappointing when he goes crazy now this is obviously on a much bigger scale and with much higher stakes but I find myself just looking at the whole thing it'd be like Yeah cool it's good so far but the whole fucking fall apart and he's second so I hope that like way down the road I can look back and be like yeah they did good I would love to be wrong I would love to be wrong the altar of his very fucking scary for the world for big they're not driving this car they're not in control of this process like Kim Jong invited some South Korean officials he did this sort of gambit at the Olympics to show them walking together we followed up on that by inviting some South Korean officials up to his house they got hammered on Soju or whatever had this meeting where they made this offer meet with trump the South Koreans walk into the Oval Office and trump basically accepts the meetings with Kim Jong UN before the meanings even over and then has him announce it so he's like flying by the seat of his pants going for a press hit and hopefully it all works out but boy there's a better way to run a railroad like that's just like do I wish that instead of trump going to these negotiations is it was Brock Obama or President Hillary Clinton Bill Clinton Yeah I mean of course these signs are promising but ultimately it hinges on the worst person America's essential so there are some risks had three hundred and thirty million people who are like you go the other the other thing this ties back to the Iran deal because part of this is not about personnel most of this is not about personalities at all it's about brutal interest and Kim can look around the world and say why on earth what I give up this nuclear weapon Libya gives up a program peacefully American politics changes and then we cut off you being dragged through the streets Iraq claims to have a program Saddam Hussein talk to me that there are reports that Kim Jong Un wants to think about giving this up in the first place like I just don't I don't comprehend how that fits with his interest I just I suspect that ultimately hasn't really yeah he just thinks he besides donald trump fortunately these North Korea negotiations are being run by Benghazi Conspiracy Theorists Mike Pompeo in warmonger John Bolton we learned this morning chaired an anti Muslim think tank known as the gates don't institute which has pushed fake Islamophobic News that was amplified by Russian trolls lovely organization luding headlines like Germany confiscating homes to use for migrants and a piece that argued Somali refugees returning Sweden into the rape capital of the West Pompeo who's we're going to be our next secretary of state also on crazy Frank Gaffney is radio show in warned that there's homegrown Islamic conspiracy against America that's growing in small town America so this is the man who will be our next secretary of state thanks to a change of heart by Rand Paul and a bunch of Senate Democrats were up in eighteen like joey Manchin Heidi heitkamp and Joe Donnelly voting yes what do we think about this Mike Pompeo secretary state you know Dan pfeiffer had a small we're the only people who are right on the Internet so the point that Dan made before I was really interrupted by the classic interrupters Tommy Never fucking word in the this is that this is supposed to be cynical that they're somehow doing the you don't actually give a shit about whether Mike Pompeo good secretary of state I don't believe mansion I don't believe these people like oh I think he's going to be great they're doing it of cynicism that to sort of appeal to prove that they're not obstructions to their more moderate states but why on earth do you think that the how politics works today who votes based on how you voted for a secretary of state a year ago what are you talking about it's not cynical it's naive it's naive to believe that this will help you vote how you mansions weak on national security ad he voted for Pompeo we have to back off it is the fair thing to do yeah let's just as Garland for his thoughts on how how it'd be a bad person and support these kinds of groups also national security risk which is if Bolton or pompilio think they could belittle or antagonize or and salt a billion people he is crazy we need to engage with members of the Muslim community build communities that transcend religion in the US and abroad like build support among Muslim populations abroad. spread stop the spread of anti-american anti-democratic sentiment you're C- directors should know this your national security advisers should get it did get it h. r. McMaster me was in Iraq he rebuked his troops for using the term Haji or any sort of like anti Islamic anti Iraqi language and when he got the NFC job he said he disliked the term no longer allowed to reference him he does not exist anymore never did John Bolton has always been national security adviser on HR on McMaster we'll let you know so it's or Anti-christian we would not even be considering that person's nomination not for now we have a secretary of state and fucking national security adviser who are crazy people crazy bigoted anti Islamic people and their influence is growing in aim example of what we see between the kind of supposedly responsible parts of the Republican establishment and Fox News which is you don't say what Sean Hannity says you don't say what having a anxious riled up base that has been made to fear a whole group of people one point one point two five billion people on planet or oded language which is is bigoted but his Tommy said dangerous for our national security stupid America's brought to you by comedy central's the daily show with Trevor Noah we interviewed him we interviewed us that was cool for into the pot trevor Noah he's really funny there's one show that could make sense of this insane world you should watch it.
