Trump: A lot of people disagreed with Bolton’s tactics, ideas
Trump: A lot of people disagreed with Bolton’s tactics, ideas Trump: A lot of people disagreed with Bolton’s tactics, ideasEveryone, I’m Elaine quijano President Trump Mark the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, alongside survivors and First Responders during a wreath-laying ceremony at the Pentagon. Today, during his speech, the president commented on peace talks, the Taliban that were supposed to take place at Camp David last weekend. Mr. Trump said they were called off because the Taliban had recently killed the US soldier in his remarks, the President issued a warning to those who threaten the US come back to our country. We will go wherever they are and use power, the likes of which the United States has never used before and I’m not even talking about nuclear power. They will never have seen anything like what will happen to them. Trump’S remarks as his National Security team is in flux. Yesterday, the president ousted his National Security advisor John Bolton, but you disagreed on a number of policy issues in Iran, North Korea and Afghanistan. What sources tell CBS News the president became especially irritated with Bolton after an axio story, suggested the president wanted to use nuclear weapons on Hurricane. With your Trump says, the story is Bolton or those close to him leaked it to the Press. Mr. Trump is now searching for his fourth National Security advisor in nearly three years. Cbs News has also confirmed at least three of both. His top aides have resigned as well. The president wished Bolton well, but he explains why he decided to let Fulton go and he said right of that year, and I told him John if too many people they’re not getting along with people and a lot of us, including me, disagree with some of your Tactics and some of your ideas – and I wish you but I’d like you – to submit your resignation and he did that. Let’S bring in Ben Tracy at the White House know how to see in Arlington, Virginia and Natalie Andrews on Capitol Hill respondent for Politico and Natalie is a congressional reporter for the Wall Street Journal. Welcome to all of you been I’d like to start with you. What more can you tell us about the president’s disagreements with John Bolton office today was probably the nicest thing he said today about John Bolton. It was really a scathing takedown of his former National Security advisor and the president didn’t explain some of the disagreements. President Trump is very much enjoying his engagement with Kim Jong Moon. It is also no secret that John Bolton was very much against this sort of Engagement with North Korea. He is famously said that the way you know him the North Koreans are lying is when they open their mouths to speak John Bolton, there was no love lost between him and the North Korean, and he once said you know they can follow the Libyan. The Libya model, with the approach North Korean that really upset the North Korean and President Trump today went out of his way to say that that was a big mistake. Did John Bolton made that he is made these negotiations with the North Koreans harder? But the present really spared there were very few kind words for somebody that is work very closely with the president for many many months now how the president said today, he disagreed with Bolton has been said: I’m using that so-called Libyan model with North Korea, nuclear weapons Bolton brought up that idea go ahead and listen to some of that. Is it a requirement that Kim Jong own agree to give away those weapons before you give any kind of concession? I think that’s right, I think we’re looking at the Libya model of 2003-2004. We’Re also looking at what North Korea self has committed to previously a model that that were using, that I wouldn’t, but I don’t think we’re going off of there’s, not a cookie-cutter model on how this works until told the President Trump model he’s going to run this. The way he sees fit Sonos anyone know who has this standing to voice. Opposition to the president’s ideas on foreign policy face is probably the most influential person in his inner circle now and National Security, but what the president does not like is when, after he has made a decision, someone goes out there and try to undermine him in the Media or in other sectors, and so that’s what his prostrate Southwest Fulton, it wasn’t necessarily that they just disagree on everything. It was the way Fulton would go out both him and his people and use the media and say things that the president fell for undermining his decision. Here is how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell react. The departure of John Bolton personally, I’ve always appreciated and clear advice. He possesses something crucial ability to understand the world. The way it is he knows there are many threats to American interests and there’s those threats will not recede if we retreat. The Republicans are really surprised yesterday Lane when they heard this news, we broke the news to them, because many of us reporters in the Capitol at heard the tweet, tweet and Republicans hadn’t, and they were upset they noticeably when they heard about it. He was told he said when he was asked: who did he want to replace them both, and he said John Bolton. He wants him back soon, so there was a real live in the capital of surprise and people who were a little uncertain about what would be next. This does Ella Mike Pompeo, who is rumored to be considering a senate run. So there’s a little bit of instability and what might happen next interesting, alright Republican and independent, they met with Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, where they confronted him about the murder of journalist Jamal khashoggi. We should note, on this day, 15 of the 90 concerned about this administration’s posture when it comes to dealing with Saudi Arabia, has definitely been a lot of unhappiness with these on Capitol Hill, and I think that increasingly, he has got a real problem when he comes To the US Congress, but that being said that National Security establishment, the president executive branch they’re all in with them at the critical partner, and it doesn’t really matter when it comes to the because for them having Saudi Arabia on our side is a huge deal. In part because their top concern is Iran and the Saudis are opposed to Iran looking at the potential gun legislation, something we certainly heard on in the month since the shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton Ohio. Let’S listen to some of that short. Of time there a lot of things under discussion, we’re looking at some things that are very strong and we have to do it in a bipartisan way and we’ll go and see what happens. We’Re looking at the whole gun situation. So been, what is your sense? He is there an urgency with in the White House to go ahead and support some kind of gun legislation over the last couple of weeks. Give these very vague statement saying things are being worked on in Congress, were having meetings were talking to people on the hill. You didn’t see his sense of urgency from the President right after those shootings when he talked about wanting meaningful background checks and then play within a couple of days after several calls with the NRA, and then you heard the president say things like. We already have strong background checks, maybe that’s not what we need now. He seems to be kind of, but finally saying I’m not going to go out there and put anything on the floor. If the president is not going to support that, so the Senate is telling the president, let us know what you’re actually for and then we’ll consider voting on it. But until that happens I don’t figure to see much action on the hill. So now, let me ask you: house, Democrats are weighing 3 gun control bills, in addition to the already passed background checks Bill. What are the? What are those are those well. I think the fact that the house Democrats are moving forward on their own legislation shows that there’s really not communication happening on either side of the capital with each other house. Democrats are looking at possibly bringing up the assault weapons ban and the bill has more than 200 sponsor, so that could be something that we see. Last night, the house Judiciary Committee debated on these run-flat the beta two bills that are sore like extreme protective orders. That would prevent someone from being able to get a gun if they’d been convicted of a hate crime, and they also looked at Banning, like high-capacity magazines, which they point to the date at Satan shooting in August, as something that perhaps this bill could prevent. Show me ask you, the President also announced today a new effort to fight vaping. What more can you tell us about that didn’t want the FDA to work towards Banning flavored e-cigarettes. Otherwise, Known is vaping. The president said this has become a big problem, a big problem. Very fast, and that’s because in recent weeks, we’ve seen a report of about 6 deaths due to vaping and hundreds of other illnesses. The president talked about this, especially as it relates to young people that these flavored products are really targeted towards teenagers and middle schoolers. This is something that first, lady cares a lot about. 2. She was sitting next to the president. While he made this announcement today, and there was a bit of an awkward moment when the president said she has a son. That’S why she cares about this course. They have a son together and he corrected himself after he said that, but this is something that he does care about you this morning and now it does look like the White House is trying to force. Some action will see what comes of that time. The last race of the 2018 election ended last night Republican Dan Bishop defeated Democrat Dan McCready in North Carolina’s, 9th District by 2 points in a district that the president won by 12 points in 2016. We know the president campaign there this week. Is the White House worried about the close margin there, president? Today, I really giving him a lot of credit for the Republican pulling that race out there saying that the president was the difference-maker there that he helped kind of right. The ship of that campaign in the rally that he did earlier this week, they say put him over the top, but that is erased really should never have been in a place of needing to be safe. That is a very strong Republican District in to win. If I only two points is not a good sign for the president, so you can imagine his campaign will be dissecting. Those results there are results that show that the demo I did very well in the suburbs – and that is a big concern for the president’s re-election of him, losing especially some of those Phoebe female, Suburban voters. So they’ll be looking very closely at the results of this election. I trying to kind of read the tea leaves for what may be ahead president next year and Natalie Andrews. Thank you all very much. Today, marks 18 years since the September 11th terrorist attacks that left nearly 3,000 people dead. As a remember the victims of the attack CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell spoke with three former Chiefs of the Department of Homeland Security. Here’S a preview been 18 years since 9/11. We’Re here at this very solemn Memorial, the thread has changed dramatically. We phase increasing homegrown threat. What’S happened to our homeland has evolved significantly the last 18 years from what I referred to as terrorist directed attacks to smaller-scale terrorist inspired attacks inspired either by a terrorist group overseas or by extreme when violent nationalism. In fact, that type of attack is now outpacing attacks. Inspired by Foreign terrorist organizations how to say, I view the agency with a fair amount of Despair and dismay. I think our old agency has become overly politicized. It is overwhelmed with the image Mission, which is itself overly politicised, very very emotional, not confirmed. How does that hamper or hurt our national security? The reality is, if you don’t have a confirmation, you’re living day-to-day, and that affects not only your ability to plan strategically received by other agencies in other departments and even other countries. You all agree. Climate change is a big threat World example when you’re talkin about global warming as a whole that affect migration patterns that affects areas of the world where the agricultural economy has been lost and therefore they are perhaps more ripe for the rise of terrorism, terrorist recruitment. So they’re all kinds of Downstream effects from global warming, 14 months away from the next Presidential. How concerned are you that foreign governments are going to do everything they can to cause chaos with the trying to play this game too? A new thing to watch out for his so-called deepfakes, which is the use of artificial intelligence to completely fabricate what appeared to be real video and audio clips of real people. But the campaign is now and we are probably, as we speak, suffering from the foreign influence on our democracy through pushing out extremist views and fake news. The three former Homeland Security secretaries have sat down together for an interview. You can see more of Nora’s conversation tonight on CBS n. Are special coverage begins at 8 p.m. Eastern President Trump weighed in on the ouster of his National Security Adviser John Bolton, saying people within his administration disagreed with a lot of his tactics and ideas on foreign policy.
