Trump wants a deal with Iran, downplays North Korea missile threat


TUESDAY MORNING. OUR TOPLY OUR TOP STORY THIS HALF HOUR, U.S.-IRAN TENSIONS. PRESIDENT TRUMP STOPPED SHORT OF SUGGESTING REGIME CHANGE.>>I’M NOT LOOKING TO HURT IRAN AT ALL. I’M LOOKING TO HAVE IRAN SAY NO NUCLEAR WEAPONS. WE HAVE ENOUGH PROBLEMS IN THIS WORLD RIGHT NOW WITH NUCLEAR WEAPONS. NO NUCLEAR WEAPONS FOR IRAN. I THINK IRAN HAS TREMENDOUS ECONOMIC POTENTIAL AND I LOOK FORWARD TO LETTING THEM GET BACK TO THE STAGE WHERE THEY CAN SHOW THAT. I THINK IRAN — I KNOW SO MANY PEOPLE FROM IRAN. THESE ARE GREAT PEOPLE. IT HAS A CHANCE TO BE A GREAT COUNTRY. WITH THE SAME LEADERSHIP. WE’RE NOT LOOKING FOR REGIME CHANGE. I JUST WANT TO MAKE THAT CLEAR. WE’RE LOOKING FOR NO NUCLEAR WEAPONS. MARIA: AS YOU HEARD, THE PRESIDENT SAID THAT A DEAL WITH IRAN IS STILL POSSIBLE. JOINING ME RIGHT NOW IS RETIRED GENERAL, GENERAL JACK KEANE. THANKS FOR JOINING US.>>GOOD TO SEE YOU. MARIA: WHAT IS YOUR EXPECTATION FOR IRAN? YOU I MEAN, THE PRESIDENT SAID JUST THERE A MOMENT AGO, I DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS A SLIP OF THE TONGUE OR WHAT, BUT HE SAID WE ARE WILLING TO MAKE A DEAL WITH IRAN. WE JUST DON’T WANT ANY NUCLEAR WEAPONS. SO WHAT MIGHT A DEAL LOOK LIKE?>>WELL, FIRST OF ALL, HE GOT OUT OF THE JCPOA OR THE NUCLEAR DEAL IN 2015 BECAUSE HE THOUGHT IT WAS A LOUSY DEAL. ANYBODY THAT IS ADVISING HIM WIL TELL YOU IF YOU’VE GOT A LOUSY DEAL, REPLACE IT WITH A BETTER ONE. HIS INS INTENTION HAS ALWAYS BEEN, TO IMPOSE A BETTER DEAL ON IRAN. AND THAT’S WHAT HE’S BEEN DOING SINCE LAST YEAR WHEN HE WALKED AWAY FROM IT. HERE’S WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. THE SANCTIONS THAT HE IS EM POSING ON IRAN ARE — IMPOSING ON IRAN IS DUE TO THE AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR IN THE REGION, SUPPORTING HAMAS, FIRING 400 ROCKETS INTOS ISRAEL, THE HEZBOLLAH ENCROACHING ON ISRAEL, SUPPORTING THE MILITIA IN IRAQ, WHERE THEY FORCED THE CLOSURE OF OUR CONSOLATE. THEY FIRED A ROCK T THEY FIRED A ROCKET AT OUR EMBASSY IN BAGHDAD. RECENTLY, IT’S BELIEVED BY THE COUNTRIES IN THE REGION, THEY SABOTAGED TWO TANKERS IN THE GULF OF OWE MAN GULF OF OWE -AN GULF OF OWE –N GULF OF OWE — OMAN. IRAN’S BEHAVIOR HASN’T CHANGE DESPITE THE SANCTIONS. WE’VE HAVE TO STAY ON TOP OF THEM. THE NUCLEAR WEAPONS WOULDN’T BE AS BIG OF AN ISSUE IF IRAN WASN’T A ROGUE STATE. THAT’S THE CENTRAL ISSUE. THEIR BEHAVIOR IN THE REGION. MARIA: THE PRESIDENT’S WELL AWARE OF THIS. LET’S MOVE ON TO NORTH KOREA, SPEAKING OF ROGUE. RECENT MISSILE TESTS THERE AS WELL CATCHING THE ATTENTION OF THE WORLD. WHILE IN JAPAN, PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS ASKED ABOUT THE RECENT LAUNCHES. LISTEN TO HIS ANSWER.>>HE BELIEVES LIKE I DO THAT NORTH KOREAS HAS TREMENDOUS ECONOMIC POTENTIAL. LIKE PERHAPS FEW OTHER DEVELOPING NATIONS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. AND I THINK THAT HE IS LOOKING TO DEVELOP THAT WAY. HE KNOWS THAT WITH NUCLEAR THAT’S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. ONLY BAD CAN HAPPEN. HE UNDERSTANDS THAT. HE IS A VERY SMART MAN. HE GETS IT WELL.>>YOU’RE NOT BOTHERED BY THE SMALL MISSILES?>>NO, I’M NOT. I AM PURSUING THAT. MARIA: JAPAN’S PRIME MINISTER SAID THE TESTS VIOLATED THE SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION. HE CALLED THEM EXTREMELY REGRETTABLE. HOW DO YOU SEE IT?>>I AGREE WITH THE PRIME MINISTER ON THAT, PRIME MINISTER SABE. THOSE MISSILES CAN RAZE JAPAN. I THINK WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS SAYING IS THAT KIM IS TRYING TO GET OUR ATTENTION BY ESCALATING, IF YOU REMEMBER A FEW WEEKS AGO A SMALL ANTI-TANK WEAPON, NEW WEAPON, THEN A ROCKET AND THEN A ROCKET OF GREATER RANGE, A MISSILE FOLLOWING THAT AND NOW A SHORT RANGE BALLISTIC MISSILE, ALL THAT ESCALATION IS DESIGNED I THINK TO LEVERAGE PRESIDENT TRUMP TO A ASSIST KIM IN HIS NEGOTIATIONS. HE WALKED OUT WITH AN EMPTY DEAL THE OF LAST TIME. HE DIDN’T GET SANCTION RELIEF. THAT’S WHAT HE’S TRYING TO GET HERE. IT IS A SERIOUS VIOLATION OF U.N. RESOLUTION, THE PRESIDENT DOESN’T TAKE IT THAT SERIOUS BECAUSE HE THINKS IT’S A NEGOTIATING PLOY. MARIA: SO IT FEELS LIKE OVER THE WEEKEND IT WAS THIS GROWING ITALIAN ISSUE WAS THE MAIN MACRO STORY. THERE WAS A COMMENT FROM ONE PLAYER THAT SAYS HE’S NOT IN FAVOR OF SANCTIONS FOR ITALY. BUT THERE ARE ISSUES AROUND TRADE. SO IT’S NOT JUST U.S.-CHINA TRADE WE’RE WORRIED ABOUT. THE PRESIDENT IS TRYING TO DO A TRADE DEAL WITH JAPAN. HE NEEDS TO DO A DEAL WITH EUROPE. HOW ARE YOU SEEING ALL OF THESE TRADE UNCERTAINTIES, GENERAL, BECAUSE I RECOGNIZE THE PRESIDENT LIKES TO BRAG THAT WE’RE GETTING ALL OF THIS REVENUE BECAUSE OF THE TARIFFS. BUT THIS UNCERTAINTY IS KEEPING A HOLD ON MARKETS PROGRESSING.>>YES, I THINK MOST OF US LOOKING AT THAT, EVEN FROM A NATIONAL SECURITY PERSPECTIVE, WE RECOGNIZE THAT THE STRONG ECONOMY ACTUALLY PROVIDES US SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF IMPACT ON NATIONAL SECURITY. I MEAN, THE ENGINE OF CAPITALISM WHICH DRIVES OUR ECONOMY CLEARLY HELPS TO PROVIDE US WITH THE KIND OF MILITARY CAPABILITY THAT WE NEED AND THE TRUMP DEFENSE BUILDUP IS ESSENTIAL TO DIG US OTT OF THE HOLE THAT WE’VE BEEN IN FOR THE LAST EIGHT TO 10 YEARS. MOST OF US LOOKING AT IT FROM THE LENS OF NATIONAL SECURITY WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE TRADE AND TARIFF DISPUTES TO END AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, TO MAKE SURE THIS ECONOMY IS SUSTAINED. MARIA: I MEAN, WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. BUT THE U.S. — THE E.U. PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS ALSO I GUESS WEREN’T AS BAD AS SOME PEOPLE THOUGHT. WHAT ABOUT THE PRESIDENT’S VISIT TO THE U.S.S. WASP, ON-BOARD THE PRESIDENT SAID THE NEW ELECTRIC CATAPULT DESIGN IS ALL WRONG. POLLING THE CROWD TO SEE IF THEY LIKE IT OR THE STEAM SYSTEM THAT’S BEEN USED FOR YEARS. WATCH THIS.>>THEY HAVE A $900 MILLION COST OVERRUN ON THIS CRAZY ELECTRIC CATAPULT. I SAID WHAT WAS WRONG WITH STEAM? I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW. ALL OF THE FOLKS THAT KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT, THE CAT PUT SYSTEM — CATAPULT OR ELECTRIC? READY? STEAM? [ CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ]>>ELECTRIC? HE WORKS FOR THE ENEMY. MARIA: THE PRESIDENT HAVING FUN IN JAPAN. GENERAL, YOUR REACTION.>>HE’S PUTTING HIMSELF IN THE MIDDLE OF A DISPUTE. A LOT OF MILITARY TECHNOLOGY IS ONE OF A KIND TECHNOLOGY, NOT FOUND IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR. IT TAKES YEARS TO WORK OUT BECAUSE IT’S SO COMPLICATED. OUR HISTORY IS COMPLICATED NEW TECHNOLOGY, WE HAVE PROBLEMS WITH IT, BUT WE SORT IT OUT. I SAY STICK WITH THE NEW ELECTRIC MAGNETIC TECHNOLOGY. IT’S CONSIDERABLY SAFER, ENABLES US TO GET PLANES OFF THE DECK QUICKER, ENABLES US TO GET LIGHT AND HEAVY PLANES OFF THE DECK. STEAM IS NOT AS RELIABLE, IT’S MORE DANGEROUS, WE GET SAILORS HURT AND DOESN’T HAVE THE FLEXIBILITY DEALING WITH DRONES. I WISH THE PRESIDENT WOULD BACK OFF, LET THE NAVY SOLVE THE TECHNOLOGY PROBLEMS. THEY WILL SOLVE IT. MARIA: I’VE SPOKEN WITH SECRETARY MIKE POMPEO A NUMBER OF TIMES ABOUT CHINA, REALLY FOCUSED ON THE NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT AND THE RISKS AROUND NATIONAL SECURITY AS RELATES TO CHINA. GIVE ME IN A NUTSHELL YOUR THOUGHTS ON CHINA AND WHAT THEY’RE DOING IN TERMS OF THEIR OWN MILITARY, TRYING TO COMPETE WITH THE U.S., GENERAL.>>FIRST OF ALL, THEY HAVE TWO THRUSTS. ONE IS THE ECONOMIC THRUST WHICH YOU’RE AWARE OF THAT YOU SEE AS A PREDATOR AROUND THE WORLD, TAKING ADVANTAGE OF NATIONS, MAKING MAJOR INVESTMENTS. THE SECOND IS THEY ARE GROWING QUICKLY AS THE LARGEST MILITARY IN THE WORLD AND ALSO BEING TECHNOLOGICALLY CAPABLE TO THE UNITED STATES. THEY CAUGHT US IN A LOT OF THE ADVANTAGES THAT WE HAVE HAD. THEY CLEARLY HAVE A MILITARY CAPABILITY THAT IS BEGINNING TO DOMINATE THE PACIFIC REGION. AND THAT’S WHAT CLEARLY IS ON THEIR MINDS AND REPLACE THE UNITED STATES AS THE GLOBAL POWER IN THE WORLD TODAY. IT IS THEIR MILITARY THAT’S GOING TO HELP THEM DO THAT AS WELL AS THEIR HUGE ECONOMIC ENGINE. MARIA: WHICH TAKES YOU BOOK THE SOUTH CHINA — BACK TO THE SOUTH

  1. This general must be senile, how much of a military budget will satisfy him exactly? we're already up to spending levels of the full steam push of the Iraq war, and we spend more than the next 10 countries combined….

  2. The reason President Donald Trump is downplaying the Korean missile launches he can't respond to it yet because our government has just confirmed that Nancy Pelosi has been selling them missiles it's all part of the chess game folks

  3. No war, no war, no war, no war, no war………………That is why Trump was elected. No regime change, no regime change, no regime change, no regime change………………

  4. This president is a genius,. History will play this out. What is unfortunate is there are many far lesser people in power positions. The president holds a big stick! ( Theodore Roosevelt, I think) talk softly ,but carry a big stick!! He's a peace maker. Surrounded by chicken Hawks. I it's really very sad doesn't have full backing.😎😇Capt. Jac ☠️🏋️

  5. Here is my wish Democrats traitor they better leave President Trump alone, let him doing the important thing for the country!! Stop bother him!! Stop traitors!! There is no witch to the witch hunted!! We’re so sick and tired of Russia…Russia…Impeach…Impeach…It  waist our taxpayer & our time!! Enough is enough!! Sick DemoRats!!

  6. But we want regime change be included in your agenda by the people of Iran. But I tell you president, these mullahs wont come into negotiation table, because the would dig their own graves.

  7. 0:08 Trump made it clear….the only thing clear is that all is obfuscated, blurred, and manipulated…

  8. at first treating with military forces , maximal pressure and then backing down and begging
    for negotiation.
    That is the politik of the most stupid government of the world

  9. of all the DC elites who is the smartest, cleverest, most honest and trustworthy………………………………………………..hint starts w a T ends w a rump….(thinkaboutit)

  10. It Iran fault they can't just launch missiles on another country. If Iran want their people to have better life they should use that money for their betterment and not for making nuclear. They should stop making nuclear missile.

  11. The Saudis and Israel are making more out of the Iranian situation in the hopes that they'll be able to sucker America into becoming involved in THEIR regional dispute. They want us American taxpayers to pay for giving Iran a beat down.

  12. President Trump wants to end these senseless wars and is willing to negotiate in good faith to secure peace in the world but he also understands that it will not be easy because of past administrations that did not always negotiate in good faith or from a position of strength. We finally elected a strong competent leader that wants to bring peace and prosperity to all people in the world. The communist news networks and both political parties are corrupt and dysfunctional and have tried to undermine President Trump. Unfortunately there are some cultures that do not negotiate in good faith and you must be prepared to use force only when all other options have failed to produce the necessary results. President Trump has the support of the people and will continue to do what is in the best interest of America. Q the truth.

  13. even if he sucked the irani president's d*** he wouldn't get what he wants. Iran shits on the US.

  14. Shame on American policy. Shame on the funder of terrorism in the world. Shame on that nation who came to middle East and make war there.Shame on people, who are trying to make tensions between Shia and Sunni in the middle East just for there life by US.
    Shame on this f..cking fake news.

  15. Joe Bidden is a corrupt; low IQ; hypocrite and a dangerous opportunist. POTUS is trying to keep a megalomaniac from nuclear war and the MSM worry about Bidden's sensitivities.

  16. If the negotiations with China were successful, North Korea would behave totally differently ..

    The rockets from North Korea is China's desperate input to the negotiation.

  17. North Korea has great potential BUT IRAN not so much.. Trump: just walk away and let them beg for a Deal… Pakistan can :0(

  18. I guess this chicken head just noticed that Iran is not Iraq. Iran nation is together not like Iraqis who got fooled by America and killed their leader😕. It's not easy fake news.

  19. Trump must bring America to war with Iran… AIPAC/Israel have ordered him to do so… And he happily agreed – that's why he appointed Bolton himself…

  20. Trump is supporting the two states that have actually attacked and killed Americans: Saudi Arabia – 9/11, and Israel – The USS Liberty…

  21. I can't take another year of this nonsense deals and talks. Trump is incompetent. Please Republicans save your party.

  22. When are you going to figure out that Trump is a psychopath? Don't believe me? Google "20 traits of a psychopath."

  23. The reformers in Iran will lose the next election because of Trump decision pulling out from the deal ….. the conservatives of Iran will held power AND good look with another Ahmadi Najad , ….the conservatives will likely are going to retaliate from Israel for bombing their ally and individuals in Syria. Honestly Rawhani is a weak leader …

  24. From the very first presidential trip, to Saudi Arabia, Israel
    and Rome, Donald Trump has said he doesn’t wish to be involved in the inner
    working of any country. The question of regime change is silly and shows you
    missed what his fundamental beliefs are.

  25. Lol Iraq backs Iran and trump starts pleading for deal…. USA is strong but not strong enough to fight multiple wars. Fake news and fake trump are only here for entertainment.

  26. GUYS CHECK THIS!!
    This is the STATE of caos for ABC, CNBC, NBC, CNN, CBS, TIME, Wall Street MSNBC,Journal and the Times after the
    Collusion Illusion they have not news only garbage:

    TODAY'S NEWS :
    -Famous Athlete stated I used to sleep with up to six women a week and “paid for plenty of abortions over the years,”

    Famous Actress/Actor/Singer is in rehab, in wellness retreat to work on some personal issues."

    This Winter temperatures will be cooler than average on both U.S

    -Hurricane season in the Caribbean officially runs from June 1 to November 30, peaking in August, September, and October.

  27. Trump has noticed there are so many missiles and s-300 and 400 in iran and now he want to deal with iran.

  28. He gonna make the same deal as Obama but gets to put his name on awwww look at the little baby 😂😂😂 dummy!

  29. Iran's nuclear ambitions must be stopped. They support so many terrorist . Hamas in Israel, Hezbollah in Lebanon. and many others. Iran must be stopped and if sanctions work ,Great.

  30. Their is no way the United States can stop another country from acquiring nuclear weapons! For all anyone knows, Iran could already have nuclear weapons in dismantled form, as in, no one would know what all those funny looking parts are! North Korea had nuclear weapons long before anyone actually knew they did! All what nuclear weapons provide is a fool's hand because they bring total destruction upon the nations who tries to use them! 🇨🇦😊

  31. Again forgot about human rights and people of Iran ? A terrorist regime which has the blood of people on his hand the USA president sitting on the same table and talking and negotiating with them ,what happened to the blood of the soldiers got killed
    No negotiating with killers and yes to regime change

  32. You can take any one thing that Donald Trump has accomplished and make an argument for a successful presidency around that one thing and Donald Trumps list of accomplishments is so long it would rival War and Peace

  33. Why would Putin prefer Trump over Clinton in 2016 election when it was clear that Trump who campaigned on the promise of removing the Iran -Clinton Obama backed nuclear deal . Russia backing Iran would never collude in the election favoring Trump, an advocate of scrapping the nucler deal all together. If anything , Iran and Russia for this reason alone would prefer Clinton over Trump.

  34. What a shame it is that we have this president in office that accomplishes so much just imagine the things we could do for this country and abroad if the Democrats would just work with him…..he has already proven that he IS willing to give Dems. What they want to get what he wants but God forbid we have a situation where everybody wins

  35. Japan owned both Koreas , lower China (Manchuria) at one point….. still hatred exist between all parties — each believe the others are east of skin…..maybe NoKo joins SoKo to infiltrate the biggest economy in the world , then takes SoKo over from the inside???

  36. Israeli Funding to Donald Trump was to Start a War with Iran because Iran is Israel only main enemy that can threaten Israel with real Weapons but Let's see if American Government will Fight for Israel only time will tell.

  37. If Trump want a deal with Iran Trump should take this wish to grave. He had a deal, he screwed it up. Now he has to wait after he looses election.

  38. If they violated the UN agreement why isn't the UN dealing with these weapon tests instead of everyone looking to the US?

  39. They are great people there a few here in Australia I worked with a few and they are family people but there leader is greedy Trump is right

  40. Can't wait for the looney left to pounce on the President saying people in Iran are great. They pounce on everything! 😡😡😡

  41. Israel and Saudi want the US to topple the Iranian gov. Trump knows this but he also understands that he must appease AIPAC and the Saudi cash-cow. This embargo on Iran is literally a shy step from war that Trump can afford but can't sustain on the long run because he knows that the world is looking unfavourably at the US since its withdrawal from the nuclear deal initially. US relations are deteriorating with China and Russia also after a short spell of positive intentions after Trump took over. He's containing the mess until his next term.

  42. The US was first to produce nuclear weapons and was first to use them. Iran & any country should have nuclear weapons when everyone else has them. Natanyahu, UAE, Saudia Arabia, Bolton, Pompeo were pushing for war and now asking for peace out of the blue. Straighten up people….

  43. Nothing matters until we wake up to the lefts agenda. One world order and one borders. Nothing else matters

  44. Its so funny that the US is accusing iran of supporting Hezbolla. The US is supporting ISIS and Al-Qaeda in syria. So hypocratic

  45. Give us all a break Trump. You surround Iran with missiles, ships, troops, GET REAL. YOU'RE PROVOKING THE WORLD TO UTTER DESTRUCTION. GET SOME BALLS AND EXECUTE SOME CRIMINALS. COWARD.

  46. Kim is running out of advisors, he just executed 6 and threw 3 into forced laborreeducation camps.

  47. This is a Liar and Propgandist of the highest order. Only dimwits and dishonest people believe this General

  48. Chinese have no experience in naval warfare, that’s why we should hit them now, hit them hard and sink every warship they have. Better now then later, because once they have the advantage, they are not going to wait around. They are just dying to crush the U.S. Remember Tiananmen Square (their own people) and off the coast of Vietnam when they shot the unarmed soldiers with 50 caliber machine gun’s on their home turf. This is what the Chinese are capable of. They shot and ran over their Chinese citizens with tanks, serious, tanks. You think a country like this will think twice about killing you ? C.C.P. are the biggest liars in the world. They can never be trusted. They openly hate God, they persecute Christians by the millions.

  49. The US President is doing a great job in establishing peace in the entire world. Countering such good move shall backfire the wrong decision makers. Countries like Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Japan, China, Pakistan and other countries which are exploiting the good people and causing sufferings to their own people and creating violent atmosphere should be careful hereafter while opposing any good move by the US. It is the moral responsibility of each country to be well behaved with it's citizens and the entire world. Otherwise when their time is up, they shall come at the receiving end of huge calamity. Every country should immediately correct the violent activities and ensure peace for the good people and also stop exploitation of women and children. The US president Donald Trump's heroic decisions are commendable and we hope he is able to keep contributing towards the development of the world.
