>> that's right. >> we hope you make good memories. >> inside politics with john king starts right now. >> the president and the playmate. >> were you in love with him. >> yeah. >> do you think he was in love with you? >> he was, yeah. >> talking about buying her silence and first helsinki and now the white house. the president offers vladimir putin another summit gift. >> what is putin blackmailing president trump with? putin appears to be president trump's puppeteer xbl no place like -- kansas? a road test for the democratic resistance. >> this is the defining moment, not just for the state of kansas but for this nation.
5:01 am
>> this country is in the midst of a political revolution in kansas, in vermont and in the bronx. >> inside politics, the biggest stories sourced by the best reporters now. >> welcome to inside politics, i'm john king. to viewers in the united states and around the world, thank you for sharing your sunday. president trump is angry at the feds and at his long time personal lawyer, big legal questions now about a secret recording in which candidate trump discusses buying the silence of a playboy center fold. >> i think somebody is lying and i can tell you it's not me. it's a little hurtful. i guess i understand because he's trying to protect his family, his image and things like that. >> were you in love with him? >> i was, yeah. >> and do you think he was in love with you? >> he was, yeah. >> plus, global fallout and
5:02 am
major white house turmoil. vladimir putin gets a second summit invite, this one at the white house as the president tries to escape his horrendous helsinki reviews. >> dan koet coats came to me and some others that said they think it's russia. i had president putin, he said it's not russia. i will say this, i won't see anybody reason why it would be. the sentence should be i don't see any reason why it wouldn't be russia, sort of a double negative. so you can put that in and that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself. >> the democratic resistance has a new mel lennial star. does this help turn red districts blue or remind middle america why it so often votes republican? >> they said what we did in the bronx no one would care about it in kansas. because we want to be a nation that allows improved and
5:03 am
expanded medicare for all. foreign nations that will not stop until every child is born with the opportunity to go to college or trade school free of cost. >> with us this sunday, to share their reporting and insight, lisa layer of the unitassociate press. why does president trump refuse to be tough with vladimir putin and refuse to consistently call out the russian leader for who and what he is? but first, the tab lloyd stunning that closed the week and take a look here, the subject of front page headlines across america. president, secret recording, payoff and playmate are words one does not expect to find in the same sentence but that is where we find ourselves this saturday. there are giant legal and political questions as a result. your favorite president did nothing wrong and part of a presidential tweet that made
5:04 am
clear the anger at the both long time loyal michael cohen and authorities that seized this and other recordings during a raid at his home and office. cohen isn't talking about his lawyer tweeted that it would be wrong to believe what the president is saying about this, ending the tweelt with this taunt, why so angry? that was made at trump tower two months before the 2016 election. cohen we're told suggests playing karen mcdougall to buy the rights to the story, she had a an affair with then businessman trump in 2006. the president asked cohen how such an arrangement would work? the president in the past denied the affair and denied any knowledge of payments to mcdougall. you start there. what has been said on the preside president's behalf, no of sosom clearly not true.
5:05 am
what is the legal jeopardy for the president now? >> that's one of the big questions going forward, whether or not any of this involves campaign finance law perhaps and anything more significant implicating wlorpt michael cohen will corporate against the president among other issue u.s. the president is concerned otherwise he wouldn't is tweeted he did. michael cohen may have done something illegal even though it's not illegal to record a conversation one way under new york law. but there's the legal side and also the political side. the president campaign was dishonest and lied to the american public about his relationship with karen mcdougal, we know obviously it existed, there was no such relationship before. this comes the same way they completely denied the stormy daniels situation. the president said he had no knowledge, knew nothing about this payment, rudy giuliani said he did know about this payment. he was involved with it. so clearly there's a lot of questions at the white house.
5:06 am
>> all happening at the same time frame, last couple months of the presidential election, the payment to stormy daniels and national eninquirer ended up making a payment, should they buy the rights -- i'm sorry i interrupted. >> what you do reporting in trump world, people are perpetually concerned about michael could hen. thought he was going to come in the white house and early down reince preiebus and others said this guy doesn't need to be in here all the time. he was the back man and fixer in new york and folks in washington do not know what this guy knows and what documents he possessed and how many conversations he taped and how he behaved for decades or one decade or more as the president's lawyer. if you talk to people around the president you hear concern about michael cohen and can see from the tweet this weekend, he's not concerned about michael cohen. this is the one who told associates he doesn't feel the president has been loyal enough to him and complaining about his
5:07 am
legal by h bills and not someone in the president's corner anymore. when you have someone top fix certificate the right word, it's not good for you. >> also, the whole point of a fixer as i understood it not having one myself unfortunately is that the fixer fixes things without the principal knowing and that was what we heard from republicans around trump, the president doesn't necessarily know what cohen was doing. this tape blows that up. so that really -- that blows up any sort of plausible deniable. he knew what was going on and was involved and that's a big problem considering as you rightfully point out, nobody knows what other tapes exist, what they are about or what's coming at all. but i would imagine that they are likely going to be conversations with the president and that seems pretty problem theic for the white house. >> the president -- i'm sorry. >> so this incident to me in isolation is difficult for me to get excited about or get into a
5:08 am
lather about. it seems unsurprising to me. we knew during the campaign that the president was dishonest and knew he was a flan derer and surrounded himself like me like michael cohen. the response seems typical, doesn't necessarily signal concern, it signals he's thin skinned and the guy is getting anywhere his skin. what strikes me is the possibility of what does this guy have on him in the future? is there something bigger than this incident that exists because this to me doesn't seem like anything all that significant. >> the question becomes is there some either campaign finance or banking record violation in terms of how the money was moved around. that would be the question going forward. the president is mad, up in bed minister new jersey, you saw the tweets yesterday and also trying to change the subject as he often does tweeting about other things, including last night the rigged witch hunt and this morning at it again. last night it was headed by the
5:09 am
13 angry democrats, no collusion or obstruction. it's interesting, i know from a conversations he's had with friends, he's mad at michael cohen and used choice words describing his long time friend and fixer and just for a little context, the president lashing out and calls it the witch hunt and calls it rigged. this is the president's own fbi director speaking publicly again this week saying sorry, boss, not the way i see it. >> i to not believe special counsel mueller is on a witch hunt. i think it's a professional investigation conducted by a man that i've known to be a straight shooter in all of my interactions with him and past life and government and certainly since then, so i don't think it's a witch hunt. >> how does that play with the boss when these guys repeatedly get asked about this at a time where you see the stories in the newspaper again today, releasing of the documents in the carter page fisa warrant, the president says they show one thing and if you read the documents they don't say what the president says they show at all.
5:10 am
you can sense a tension as we get more activity out of the special counsel's office, tension in the white house. >> the president's rhetoric on the investigation puts folks like christopher wray in a tough spot. he has tons of thousands of agents that he's responsible for that don't see it as a witch hunt. the president -- he can't really publicly sharply disagree with the president eernl because the president can fire him. there you saw him trying to walk the line without repudiating the president and saying here's what i think the facts are, right? when the president's messaging exercise on this probe is actually pretty successful. he has lots of people convinced it is a witch hunt. you've seen a profl numbers go down for robert mueller's probe and some of the charges not true about this investigation, and then you have folks who are playing it out, rod roysenstein chris mueller, because when he's president of the united states, he tweets these sorts of things, it's hard to go against a guy who paid your check or keeps you
5:11 am
in office. >> the risk to do that, does not put pressure on russia for allegedly, these russians were indicted for hacking and attacking the american elections, the president has still note called or attacked the -- raised any concerns about what was found eight days ago by these indictments, instead he's been continuing to attack. this is a rigged witch hunt to suffice -- to help his own political purposes. >> but as josh points out, it is kind of smart pr because in the end, particularly in democrats win the house, this is likely to be a political process. if democrats win the house and they decide to pursue some kind of impeachment action, which is certainly what the grass roots of their base wants them to do, it becomes a political game in washington. laying out the president's narrative how is setting up for this moment. the thing is there's been no counter narrative because the investigation, robert mueller, has been a black box. so the question is what happens once we start hearing from
5:12 am
mueller, once the investigation starts speaking. then there's pushback to the narrative and does the dynamics of that -- do those polling numbers start to shift. >> are we having the same conversation at the ends of november as we're having now, i think it's a big question. up next here, despite the helsinki mess, putin gets a second summit invite. stunning even some members of the president's inner circle. when they say you're not ready... that's the time to really shine. ♪ elvive extraordinary oil. in just one use, elvive revives dry hair. in just one use, sometimes a day at the ballpark is more than just a day at the ballpark. stadium announcer: all military members stand and be recognized. no matter where or when you served, t-mobile stands ready to serve you. that's why we're providing half off family lines to all military.

'cause crabfest will be gone in a snap. and now bring home the seafood you crave with red lobster to go. call or order online today. to russia now, who's your vaddy? that's the tongue in cheek of the new york daily news mocking the president as a pawn of vladimir putin. that was in more polite terms the big debate in washington and many global capitals. he was weak and defer ent shal in helsinki. not calling out russian attacks or russian aggression against its neighbors, facing a revolt from his own team and political party, he claimed he misspoke. >> dan coats said they think it's russia. i have president putin, he just said it's not russia. i will say this, i don't see any reason why it would be. i said the word would instead of
5:17 am
wouldn't. the sentence should have been i don't see any reason why i wouldn't or why it wouldn't be russia. >> but the president's cleanup was anything but clean. he still said others might also have meddled and answered no when asked if russia is still meddling. so this to clean up the cleanup. >> haven't condemned putin specifically. do you hold him personally responsible? >> well, i would because he's in charge of the country. >> but any hope the president was about to turn tough was quickly dashed and new invitation for a second putin summit this one at the white house. >> getting along with president putin, getting along with russia is a positive, not a negative. now, with that being said, if that doesn't work out, i'll be the worst enemy he's ever had. the worst he's ever had. >> it was a dizzying week. what did we learn about russia policy?
5:18 am
anything? >> i think we learned that russia policy in this administration operates on parallel tracks. there is the president's policy, which he doesn't seem to share with his senior national security team. i don't know we've ever seen that before. and which is a bit concerning and then so we've got the president's policy on one side and out of the senior national security on the other side operating on parallel tracks. >> there's a lot we don't know too. there's a lot -- they had a private one on one meeting that we really are getting more information about from what the kremlin is reading out that what the white house is reading out. there are -- >> happened again yesterday. >> secretary of state spoke to -- counterpart lavrov and russian foreign ministry put out a lengthy statement. administration crickets. we may learn more this week, prapsz they can shed more light about exactly what happened but the president is trying to have the second summit suggesting it was the dirt r first summit was a great success.
5:19 am
but if the public comments are any indication about what he said privately, i'm not sure that would give anyone any reassurance he was talking tough to putin and in line with his national security leaders are saying. >> you have clearly the national security guys trying to reassure allies and reassure the country the taking this seriously and interference in the election, immediately undercut not only by the president and his -- i believe you called it a week of walk-backs, but also what the government is actually doing, right? who's handling it? dhs has a piece, doj has a piece. but normally in these situations, this is a serious thing. there would be a point position, some kind of coordinated effort to get a handle around what the interference was and how do you stop it from happening again. that is not what's going on as far as anybody knows from the government. that is really problematic. >> the disconnect here, that his administration does not even know if there were any deals
5:20 am
made. one of the senior military officials said we're not sure exactly what he said behind closed doors and the president takes a far warmer tone towards putin than anyone else in his own party in washington, voted 98-0 against him, mitch mcconnell, paul ryan, you know, all of these see putin as a thugist strong man. the president thinks behind closed doors he can charm him anne get vladimir putin to do things other leaders haven't been able to. we saw the same thing with kim jong-un in north korea. called him terrific rvegs talked about his personality and deal making skills. he's killed his own family and starved his own people. there could be more nefarious reasons but one likely observation, he thinks they are smart and shrewd and when he's over there, he's charming to their face to try to get something out of them.
5:21 am
i don't think he necessarily understands how these folks interact and operate. >> to get what out of him? the russians are saying that the president -- the two presidents are on the same page when it comes to syria. excuse me? that they are on the same page when it comes to russia's role in the middle east? excuse me. no public comments about ukraine at all. it is very rare to get any bipartisan agreement in this town in these days but this past week on capitol hill, you did get it. the republicans and democrats say the president's russian performance in helsinki was weak. >> it was offensive. it was a showing level of submission before a dictator, before vladimir putin -- >> it's imperative that he understand that he's misjudging putin. i don't think he was prepared as well as he should have been. >> most americans when they have their home broken into, they upgrade their security system and don't invite the bur kblaer over for dinner. >> i've seen the russian intelligence and you know, manipulate many people in my
5:22 am
career and i never would have thought that the u.s. president would be one of them. >> striking there, the last part, former cia operative, will hurd, in a tough race, politics are interesting this year. the level of critique and condemnation, we haven't seen that, maybe a little bit post charlottesville would be the only comparison i would think of. will anything come of it? will they do anything about it? >> the one thing that may come of it, sanctions package being discussed in the senate right now, mitch mcconnell wants to at least -- the committee process to be begin. there's a bipartisan bill by marco rubio and van holen that could possibly get traction. you'll neat support in the house and white house's support, so there's a long way to go. there was that resolution that was passed in the senate to reject the notion of letting russians interrogate any
5:23 am
americans but republicans did block another symbolic resolution to rebuke the president more broadly on russia, what happened in helsinki. so it's unclear what more -- >> you heard quickly from vladimir putin comes to washington in the fall, not coming to capitol hill, they don't want any part of that. just words or actions? >> frankly republicans have a bit of a problem on this issue because prds trump is chanpresi changing what the republican party stands for. when you look at the numbers, more republicans now say that they are okay with having warmer relations with russia and approve how he handled the summit this past week. you have republicans in capitol hill who are playing by the old rules and pretrump rules and that's not where the base necessarily is anymore. and that's something that they are really going to have to finess, you did see more outrage from republicans this week than you have seen on previous issues but it was far from a universal
5:24 am
condemnation. >> to that point, new abc poll this morning, overall approval, just 33% of americans approve, 8% of dems and 33% independence and 66% of republicans. if this president is touch with with the republican base, we'll see what happens there and marco rubio will be on "state of the union" next. the challenge of working for a president who does what he wants when he wants. politicians are saying the darndefendant things courtesy of the fbi director, christopher wray. >> pretty common to meet somebody and have them introduce themselves, i just want you to know, we're all praying for you. i always say thank you and then my third reaction is, i haven't seen tv in the last two hours. is this all of the other stuff or something new happened? friends, colleagues, gathered here are the world's finest insurance experts.

5:29 am
welcome back, not just what the president does that causes so much disruption and controversy, often how he does things is just as important and controversial. like inviting vladimir putin to the white house without telling some top members of your own national security team or as four of cnn correspondents tell us here, turning the traditional global world order on itsz head. >> in the days before president trump met with president putin, british prime minister asked president trump to raise the issue of the poisoned former russian spy here in the uk. it's not clear if that happened in the closed door nearly two hour meeting between president trump and president putin. british officials have been quiet since that meeting. they would have hoped that president trump would have pushed president putin on that issue of attacking the u.s. elections because president putin is believed to have attacked uk democracy and uk
5:30 am
elections as well. trump seen to britain in some ways as a weakening ally. >> i'm atika shubert. the world is no longer alion the super power of the u.s. to keep world order. this kind of sums it up after the nato summit, a monsterous president trump looking to devour chancellor angela merkel. at the nato summit, trump berated merkel for spending less than 2% on defense and also made the extraordinary claim that germany was under the total control of russia. as president trump is attacking allies and embracing adversar adversaries, she says europe has to stay united a take a bigger role in saving the world' problems. >> people are trying to shrug off president trump's comments not coming to the defense of this nato member. but really it strikes at the
5:31 am
heart of a real issue here before this tiny coastal enclaf joined the nato alliance, russia tried to exert influence, even some say stage a coup in october 2016. russia lost out and joined nato all the same but still there's a real delicacy over this particular issue. foreign minister saying that they are trying to laugh this off and still feel article five applies and still feel safe but also accepting this may well have been music to russia's ears. >> i'm matthew chance in moscow, one of the few places outside the white house where that helsinki meeting has been so highly praised. the russian foreign minister called the talks magnificent. better than super. president putin has been slightly more restrained saying that useful agreements were made. the kremlin is also grounded on critics of president trump, accusing them of sacrificing ties with russia for political gain. concerns are growing here that a
5:32 am
backlash in the united states could eventually made the tense relations with washington even more strained. interesting perspective. too matthew chance's point, russian foreign minister saying better than superer. one of the big surprises in washington, the public discord among members of team trump how the president did this. the fact he had the long one on one private meeting, only translators in the room with vladimir putin and russians characterized all of these agreements and common ground. u.s. side still scrambling. listen to the director of national intelligence dan coats when he was asked, is this the right way to do it. >> asked me how that ought to be conducted and i would have suggested a different way. but that's not my role. that's not moi job. so it is what is it is. >> vladimir putin is coming to the white house in the fall --
5:33 am
>> say that again. >> okay. >> yeah. that's going to be special. >> that -- the entire conversation but that particularly caused a lot of problems inside the white house. you're putting a reporting team yesterday saying it was received poorly inside the white house. one official saying coats has gone rogue. he tried to clean this up, some press coverage mischaracterized my -- no way meant to be disrespectful or criticize the actions of the president. is he in trouble? >> that was about as convincing as trump's walk back on tuesday saying he left out a word. but that was a truly astonishing moment. not only because coats wasn't informed but you have somebody who works for the president essentially mocking him on a national stage and for as much as people may object to the way trump goes about things, i mean, he is still the president and if
5:34 am
somebody disagrees -- if somebody works for him disagrees to something he does to the point they want to criticize him publicly they should step down. >> dan coats actually said -- >> not the substance. >> the substance of his remarks. and one of the things that is missed and goes to the point that some of the correspondents were making earlier. coats in the interview made very clear they tried to tune out all of the noise above them. put the news on the shelf and work with allies because they are trying to reassure the al lyles over the concerns they are hearing. >> the translation of that is we ignore what the president says in tweets. >> exactly, ignore what the president says -- >> great organizational chart. >> the united states still stands what it always stood for. that is a really remarkable statement for someone so high up and you look -- also what senator mcconnell said when he came to the mikes talking to reporters the last tuesday, when he tried to reassure european allies that america is still with europe, this after the
5:35 am
president called the eu a foe. you're hearing top level officials close to the prtd trying to make that case that nothing is really changed even though the president has. >> i would say with the president in europe, we did the nato and then we went to london and helsinki. it was kind of remarkable, you had mattis and others telling allies we're committed to nato and want nato and you have the president demanding now 4% of gdp spending instead of 2%. throwing the meeting into an emergency session. then declaring a victory, somehow inexplik by and leaving, he criticized theresa may and she's she would have handled brexit better. oh, it was fake news, didn't criticize her and get to helsinki, he does what his team doesn't want him to do, hundreds of pages of briefing material, let's be tough on -- >> that was first mistake. >> let's be tough on president putin, he doesn't. i mean, what you often see when you watch him, whatever the folks around him tell him to do
5:36 am
or suggest he does, he does the opposite. somewhat contrarian, a lot of beliefs he has in nato not a good organization or eu doesn't like, multilateral trade deals and feelings about theresa may. he's not going to change them. so there's all of these briefings and efforts to get him to be somewhat in a boxg, when he goes on the world stage, he doesn't really follow what he's told to do at all. >> a lot of aides telling the other allies, don't worry, we'll take -- pay no attention, we'll take care of it. >> up next, medicare for all? free college and a government mandated pay raise? is that peing with moral clarity or road map to democratic defeat in the heart land? lenge to your healthy routine and see how activia yogurt with its billions of live and active probiotics may help support your digestive health so you can take on your day. start the activia probiotic challenge today. it works or it's free!

america votes in 107 days and this is the map democrats are most confident about changing in the trump mid-term election. this is the house of representatives after the 2016 midterm election. you see the blue on the coast but look at middle america. a lot of red out there, why there's a big debate in the democratic party. kt resistance, bernie sanders like supporters, sell their message out here? is it too dangerous for democrats to be talking about medicare for all, free college tuition, can you sell that in places that have consistently made the republicans the majority in the house? well, the resistance took the road show to kansas near the end of the past week. one democratic district hopes of turning a second district blue and to the democrats who say
5:42 am
dial it back to the key to the big blue wave in 2018 is not scaring away republicans, unhappy with president trump, especially out here in red america, listen, liberal icon bern mee sanders and new millennial partner say no thanks. >> and they say what did in the bronx no one would care about it in kansas. what this moment requires of us is for every day people to do more than they've ever done before to reclaim the sole of this nation. >> we must have gotten off at the wrong stop because people told me that kansas was a republican state, doesn't look like that today. we all going to create a government which represents all of us, not just wealthy campaign contributors. >> you hear the energy in the room but this is a huge source of tension and debate in the
5:43 am
democratic party. can you sell that in red america or is it a huge risk to be going into red america and sounding so liberal? >> right, i mean this is a younger more -- with the exception of bernie sanders of course, a younger more oppositional force in the democratic party coming up that's nademanding not only generational change but also repudiating the centerism and liberal of the obama era and in some ways they've already won. when you look at the 7,000 people playing with potential runs for president in 2020 on the democratic side, a lot of them have embraced a lot of the planks, single care health care, federal jobs guarantees. it does feel that's the way the party is moving but the midterms will be a really big test of that. >> it's tension within the party right now. if you talk to republicans they believe the one chance they have of keeping the house is that a
5:44 am
lot of these candidates will be campaigning on issues out of the mainstream and they believe they can win because of that. still, it's very difficult for the republicans to take -- i mean, at the maps and energy from the democratic base but this is going to be the debate going into 2020, how much do you play work with a trump administration, how far left do you go? because if you don't, you will get -- there will be candidates who go further left and they will energize the base and drive the debate in the democratic party heading into 2020. >> she's understandably has become a spokeswoman, millenn l millennial. and this is her in a pbs interview and republicans say huh? >> right now, what we have this no holds bar, wild west hyper capitalism. what that means is profit at any cost. capitalism has not always existed in the world and it will not always exist in the world.

when the country started we were not a capitalist and does not operate on a capitalist economy. >> it is words like that, interviews like that that bring this. socialist rising on the front of the drudge report. mitch mcconnell saying wouch out voters this is what the democrats will bring you. applaud candidates who say what they believe. in one way give her credit. in another way, can you sell it in the heart land, why the republicans have the majority? >> she's not far enough into the political system to be like shading and politicking and much like trump actually. but you know, in the same way that conservatism or conservative movement is dead and overtaken by populism, i think democrats are ripe for the same thing happening, maybe not in 2018 but in 2020. that said, i don't think socialism is populism. i don't think that these sort of socialist views are going to be salable in the heart land.

>> they welcome some of these kind of far drk further left arguments like the movement on the left, the folks in the white house are hoping that happens and people -- that picks up steam and cherishing that fight. i mean, some of these you know, the further left ideas, the white house -- i don't know if they can, we'll see in 2020, rightly hopes the party moves to the left and they think it's in their benefit and the president says that privately, mocking bernie sanders and elizabeth warren. they could pick up steam and that could bite him but that's where the sent. seems to be in summer 2018. >> maybe think we can sell this? that's why we have elections 107 days. our reporters share next, why president trump may already be losing his patience with kim jong-un. ♪

one last trip around the inside politics table. a little something from the notebooks to get you ahead of the big political news around the corner. >> i went down to virginia's seventh district, richmond, suburbs of rich mobbed to the blue ridge mountains to see how the president's latest moves on russia were playing with voters and what i found what you would expect. republicans are sticking with him. that's what we've seen from polling and what's happening on the democratic side was interesting. obviously they are opposed to what the president has done but the constant walk backs and controversies are providing weekly shots of adrenalin to the democratic base. what you see is protesters have become volunteers and who are likely going to become voters and that's exactly what worries republicans particularly in places like those richmond suburbs where they have a tea party congressman up against a democrat whoos an undercover cia officer. they are a little bit nervous about the race and that's a race if they are nervous about that
5:52 am
race, it looks far worse for things that are much tighter battle grounds. >> couple of great ones. >> president trump's supreme court nominee, the skews on executive power coming more into light after documents were submitted to the senate judiciary committee. we learned yesterday that about a couple of decades ago, he argued that the case involving the nixon watergate tapes was wrongly decided and that was another a unanimous decision ordering the tapes to be turned over. this comes after we reported last week what his concerns about an independent counsel different than a special counsel but raised concerns about enty outside of capitol hill raising the conduct of the president. how does he view a mueller investigation and also a big question, how many more documents is he going to submit to the senate judiciary committee. he touched millions of
5:53 am
documents, the judiciary chairman said he's only going to ask for relevant documents and democrat want all of the documents. so it will be another big fight going forward. >> with president trump we turn from the snornlg korea summit, everybody could sleep well and declared peace on the peninsula. that's not been the case. the north koreans have been absent in the negotiations and canceled meetings and demanded money and done what many experts expected the north koreans would do. we have a story today looking how the president is frustrated at the stalled negotiations with who gave him the verbal promises but aren't doing anything in return. i think it will be something to continue watching because you have foreign policy with russia obviously, north korea is a troubled hot spot for the president. made all of these grand ioss claims about what's happened in north korea but on the ground it seems little has happened. >> you can't tweet away a

nuclear -- doesn't work that way. >> i'm looking ahead to john kelly's one year anniversary on the job and assessments of his tenure coincides with a particularly turbulent week at the white house. we have to say if john kelly went in with any illusion he could tame this president, he no longer has that illusion but that being said, there are a few people who have been with this president the whole way, including john kelly. so i think this president has found people who can work with him over the long term. john kelly, secretary of defense, jim mattis, secretary of state, mike pompeo, so there are people who can work with this president. but nobody who can change him. >> that's a great way to put it. haven't seen a lot of change. i want to close by wuishing a happy birthday to an american hero, eight presidential campaigns ago, bob dole is 95 today. that is a remarkable achievement especially for a son of kansas wounded and left for dead on an

italian hillside in 1945. if you don't know his story, i suggest you study it. we can all learn a humbling lesson from 70 plus years of living in constant pain but always putting country and service first. it's a story that yes, includes asking the media where is the outrage about bill clinton but not once calling the media the enemy of the state. a story that includes many sharp partisan battles but not one breath spent attacking institutions that make america great. our president i'm told plans a happy birthday dweet to senator dole today. it would be a much better gift if he would take time to study how this great american went about his business. >> thanks for sharing your sunday morning. state of the union up next. jake sits down with carter page and with republican senator mark row cube toshi marco rubio. have a great sunday. let's begin.
