>>ky just for him up, you mentioned that -- you mentioned that no one had pointed the finger at him, but actually the cia did, the intelligence community. >> i cannot comment on the intelligence community. i'm not -- i guess i'm allowed do what i want to do in terms of that. right? we can declassify unlike hillary clinton, she decided to just give it out. we can declassify. the truth is i don't want to talk about intelligence. but i will say this, a lot of people are being prosecuted and they are taking it very seriously. and they have done a great job in saudi arabia from the standpoint of women and from a lot of different things happening in saudi arabia. one of the other things very important with saudi arabia that not only are they afternon ally only have theyspeak!$!nt tremes
amounts of money and bought tremendous amounts of military equipment that we can use, but they very much changed their ways as to financing terror which i can't say for a lot of other countries, iran and other countries in that area, they financing terror. it is harder for iran because iran doesn't have the money they used to have and they were given $150 billion, $1.8 billion in cash, but saudi arabia has come a long way in terms of reform. please, in the gold. yeah, you. right. >> thank you very much, mr. preside president. i'm with chinese business news. just a followup on huawei. you say that you will discuss huawei entity livsting soon. is it a possibility that huawei will be removed from the entity list? >> i don't want to talk about
it. we are looking at that very carefully. you huawei is very much in play in tell terms of our country and the intelligence community. i just think it is inappropriate. i will say that we are not -- other than what i told you already, we are not making it a big subject. we'll save it for later. >> and a question on the big picture of u.s./china relations, what do you think u.s. and china should see each other, are we strategic partners, are we competitors, enemies? >> no, i think that we'll be take strategic partners. i think that we can help each other. if the right deal is struck, we can be great for each other. if china would open up, you are opening up a -- you know, largest market in the world and right now china is not open to the united states. but we're open to china. that should have never really been allowed to happen. okay, yes, please.
>> that you thi >> thank you, mr. president. you plan it go to moscow next spring as president putin invited you. >> yes. >> and do you degree with him that western style liberalism is obsolete? >> i haven't heard him say that, but he did invite me to russia for the defeat of nazis. russia lost he said 25 million people. i have heard 50 million people. but he said yesterday that russia fighting the nazis, they lost 25 million people. you would know better than anybody, peter. but it was a tremendous -- you know, they suffered greatly. and they are having a 75th you could really say celebration of the defeat of the nazis. and he invited me and i said i would give it very serious consideration. russia went through a lot.
they lost i guess far more than anybody fighting the nazis in terms of people. and he did invite me. and i said that we would get back. but we will give dla very serious consideration. okay? thank you. >> financial "times" right before arriving here was that western style liberalism is obsolete. i know you probably haven't read it. >> he may feel that way. he sees what is going on. and if you look at what is happening in los angeles where it is so sad to look and what is happening in san francisco and a couple of other cities which are run by an extraordinary group of liberal people. i don't know what they are thinking. but he does see things that are happening in the united states that would probably preclude him from saying how wonderful it is. at the same time, he congratulated me as every other leader of every country did for what we've done economically because we probably have the strongest economy we've ever had and that is a real positive. but i'm very embarrassed by what
i see in some of our cities where the politicians are either afraid do something about it other they think it is votes or -- peter, i don't know what they are thinking. but when you look at los angeles, when you look at san francisco, some of the other cities -- and not a lot. not a lot. but you don't want to spread. and at a certain point i think the federal government maybe has to get involved. we can't let that continue to happen to our cities. ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much. i'll see some of you in south korea. maybe at the dmz. but it has been an honor. thank you all very much. thank you. >> the u.s. president donald trump in osaka speaking in a wide ranging interview with reporters there this following the g-20 summit, the speaking on everything from his talks with china regarding trade, speaking on iran, speaking on a possible handshake with north korea. a lot to ask you fdiscuss. jim sciutto has been following
this. and nic robertson also there. both in osaka following this news conference. gentlemen, we heard a lot. where to start. first jim, let's talk about what we heard with the u.s. president speaking on china and the trade tensions. we hear that the talks have been positive between the two leaders. what more did you take from this? >> an important point is china, but before that, i do want to highlight his comments on russian interference in the 2016 election. we saw in effect fundamentally a repeat of the president's helsinki moment here because when the president was pressed as to whether he in private with vladimir putin was more serious about warning russia away interfering in u.s. elections, more serious than his joking moment with putin yesterday, the president said putin denies it totally. you will remember that iswhat -t
phrasing in helsinki. seeming to say that putin's denial is credible despite what u.s. intelligence agencies, democratic and republican lawmakers and committees have found on russian interference in the election. it was a press conference full of comments and news frankly from this president, but that phrasing for the u.s. president to treat the russian president's denial of interference in the election when the u.s. has concluded very definitively that russia interfered is remarkable. and harkens back to that helsinki moment. but on the china issue, certainly important. we see the outlines of a deal if you want to call it that that got these negotiations going again. the president saying here is what he is giving china in effect. he will not impose new tariffs as he had threatened to do. he will also he said make it easier for chinese students to come to the u.s. he says that the chinese have said that it had become more difficult. but crucially he said that with
huawei, this company supplies an enormous amount of sophistication equipment around the world which u.s. intelligence views it as a national security threat, they believe that the equipment has back doors that allows china to listen to conversations, et cetera, the president said that he will allow u.s. companies to sell again to huawei, which is in effect helps huawei. he says it is about u.s. jobs, but it is a concession there. and he said that he is at least considering taking huawei in effect off a banned list, that is a remarkable concession here particularly because you are in effect mixing national security concerns with trade concerns here. that is a big concession to china. the students and also the delay of new tariffs. what the u.s. is getting in return according to the president apparently is china's pledge to buy a tremendous amount, those are the president's words, of food and
agricultural product. so we're seeing the outlines of what got the talks back on track. a lot of concessions from the u.s. i would say a busy news conference, but those were certainly two very important points from my perspective listening to the president. >> there were a lot of headlines coming out of this news conference. you started with his comments on russia. mr. trump's words essentially saying, quote, i said it, i said the words with regards to russian election meddling. i want to remind our viewers exactly what happened during that exchange. we have a sound bite where the president spoke on it. let's play that now. >> i did say it. we had a discussion. we had a great -- actually, we had a great discussion. president putin and myself. i thought it was a tremendous discussion. i did say it. and i did discuss it a little bit after that. >> so jim, he did say it. >> he says that he did bring up
meddling. basically he says -- you'll remember the moment yesterday where when he was asked about warning russia from interfering in the elections again, that the president made a bit of a joke saying i'm saying to him right now, don't medal dle in the election. putin was smiling as well. certainly not a serious handling of what is a serious issue in u.s. intelligence. about you the wo but the words that followed the clip you just aired is where the president said once again that president putin denies it totally that he interfered in the election. that is not the view of the u.s. government or national security apparatus. and again democratic and republican lawmakers on the hill. so that is a remarkable thing to do. and you remember the criticism that the president got after helsinki. but does that mean that the u.s. president doesn't believe that russia interfered?
it is possible. it is possible. hard to say. >> jim sciutto live for us in osaka. jim, stand by. let's bring in nic robertson. nic also live in osaka. and one of the big headlines as well, the u.s. president traveling from japan to seoul, set to meet with moochb jn jae- there. but he has signaled that he would like to possibly shake hands with the north korean leader. listen and we'll talk about it on the other side. >> kim jung-un was very receptive. he responded. and so we'll see. tomorrow we're going to the dmz. i said while i'm there, i'll shake his hand. we ha we get along. there has been no nuclear tests. no long range ballistic tests. gave us back our hostages and a lot of good things are happening over there. so we'll see. i can't tell you exactly.
but they did respond very favorably. >> and nic, again this is a president who values highly relationship, bilateral relationships with leaders, bilateral talks. also photo-opes very important. but the question, are those getting the job done when it gets down to concrete solutions. >> certainly doesn't seem to be. if you listen to the rhetoric over the past week or so coming from the north koreans, it has been very critical of the people that president trump is entrusting with actually negotiating a way forward. they have been accusing secretary of state mike pompeo, special representative to north korea as well, you know, as piling on way too much pressure on to north korea. so from that perspective, you know, president trump is going into this and it is a photo-op that will work for chairman kim perhaps more than for president
trump. remember what happened when the south korean leader, president moon, met on the dmz with kim jung-un. and it was something that really worked to kim jung-un's advantage. yes, that is something that president moon wanted. he wanted the visibility that this is a relationship and a moment in time where we can try to work with north korea. but kim jung-un shook his hand, they stepped over the border. it was very theatrical. little substance although those two countries have worked more closely together subsequently. but this is what president trump was asked about, he was asked would he step over the border, actually physically into north korea sort of from the south korean side of the dmz to the north korean side and he said without even sort of hesitating for a second that he would do that. when you do that, you move into kim's space. you move into the area that he is most comfortable in, you move
into him owning the narrative in a way. but remember that kim jung-un only in the past week or so met with president xi of china in pyongyang. so these are going to be two big victories for him domestically. but nothing on the substance of what president trump is trying to chief and no indication that this will precipitate only the continued slow rolling that kim jung-un has applied to his relationship with president trump ever since their first highly talked about and highly covered summit in singapore. so on substance, it doesn't seem to add anything. certainly theater. >> nic robertson, stand by for us. let's bring in jim sciutto again. jim also in osaka following this. and jim, jim acosta was in the room. jim acosta asked the u.s.
president about the killing and dismemberment, brutal murder of jamal khashoggi and the also president essentially said that he felt bad about it, that he was angry that it happened, but still defended his relationship with mohammad bin salman, the crown prince of saudi arabia. here is a bit of that exchange. we'll talk about it on the other side. >> i asked him what was happening. and he was telling me that -- i think he said 13, but could be more. i think he said more in the works. that there are large numbers of people being prosecuted. he is very angry about it, he is very unhappy about it. and i did mention to him very strongly and he answered very strongly. but they are prosecuting large numbers of people. that was a bad event. >> the u.s. president also saying no one has pointed the finger at bin salmmohammad bin that not the case though. the cia certainly in their investigation has raised questions around that. and there is that photo-op where president trump was standing
side by side with mbs. >> reporter: it appears that we know the president's position on the murder of jamal khashoggi. and that that is not going to get in the way of the president's relationship with the crown prince mohammad bin salman. the president referred to him in this press conference as future king of saudi arabia. there are questions -- there were questions following the murder as to whether the u.s. would withdraw their support from the crown prince as the heir apparent to the throne. the president in effect taking the crown prince's word that they are investigating this, they will find the cull pretties and as you say falsely stating that no one has pointed a finger at the crown prince when in fac and as you say falsely stating that no one has pointed a finger at the crown prince when in fact that is the cia's assessment that he likely directed it. and also the u.n. investigation found evidence that the crown prince was behind this. but the bottom line for this president appears to be that the overall relationship as well as
the trading relationship trumps credible evidence of crown prince being involved in this murder. one more point just on a different suggest again one of the many headlines that i think could get lost in what was a very busy news conference, the president there saying that he wants to renegotiate the u.s./japan defense agreement, a bedrock of this long alliance going back to world war ii saying that it is not fair that the u.s. will come to japan's defense if it is attacked but that japan will not come to the u.s. defense if the u.s. is attacked. i think it shows a fundamental misunderstanding of the agreement. the u.s. has that agreement, its to make it unnecessary for japan to have nuclear weapons to respond to its neighbor china's nuclear weapons. the u.s. president saying he wants to renegotiate a decades long defense agreement with one of its closest allies.
that is news. >> there were important moments and that was one of them. these important alliances and agreements that are in place also. and we'll get on to this later. but when speaking about busing, he described it as the primary method of getting people to school. so that is one of the headlines for sure that we'll talk about. jim sciutto live for us in osaka and also nic robertson. gentlemen, thank you. stand by. we'll be back with you in a moment. you're watching cnn continuing coverage, the u.s. president in osaka, japan. these folks don't have time to go to the post office

you're watching cnn, breaking news following the u.s. president who just spoke at the g-20 summit, a wide-ranging news conference there in osaka, japan. and he spoke on many different topics. he spoke on north korea, a possible meeting with kim jung-un as he travels to south korea to meet with the president of that nation there as he leaves the g-20. he spoke on russia essentially saying that he did say the words
to the russian president, he did say not to meddle in the u.s. election that is coming up. he spoke on china as well. and that is key here because that is a main headline coming out of this g-20. the president saying that the talks were positive and that the united states will allow u.s. companies to sell parts, information, to huawei, a controversial company in the eyes of this u.s. president and president trump saying that china will be inclined to purchase agricultural products from the united states. let's listen to just a bit of what he said during this news conference and we'll continue right after that. >> we will be continuing to negotiate and i promise that for at least the time being we're not going to be lifting tariffs on china. we won't be adding an additional, you know, tremendous amount of -- we have i guess
$350 billion left which could be taxed or could be tariffed. and we're not doing that. we're going to work with china on where we left off to see if we can make a deal. >> and as we continue this hour, let's bring in our guests to talk more about it. leslie vinjamuri and also the chair of the department of political science in youngstown. leslie, let's start with you. certainly the markets will be relieved to hear that talks will resume between the united states and china. >> absolutely. there wouldn't be any clarity or confidence as to where those will go because there as been so much volatility in the trade talks. but just the fact that they will actually restart talks, that there is an open question as to
whether there will be additional tariffs, certainly not now. so i think that progress is significant. that was the number one item that people have been -- that the business community certainly globally been waiting for. and remember part of this is driven by the fact that there has been pushback within the united states on this very tough trade context between the u.s. and china because it is eroding business confidence and really raising very serious questions about growth. so i think trump is certainly responding in part to that. >> and paul the same question to you, but with an eye to 2020. huh importa how important is it for this u.s. president to have some stability as we get closer to this election? >> as we said for many years when we look at elections, it is the economy. and if the economy starts to go downhill, that is very bad news for president trump's
probability of being reelected. so he has to worry about the effect of the tariffs. what we are right now vael back in december. this is what happened at the end of the last g-20 meeting and that the president agreed to hold off on raising tariffs. last time he gave us a three month sort of window that he then extended. this time there isn't any specific window. but we're kind of back to where we were. we had the may announcement that tariffs would be increased from 10% to 25%. and we're sort of on hold there. >> it was also important to point out that president trump has signaled to north korea that he is open to a meeting, a handshake at the dchlmz with ki jung-un. let's talk about that and the significance, leslie. because if that does happen, how significant will it be just for the continued relationship, the talks, the optics between these
two nations. and if it doesn't happen, will this be a way for president trump to essentially say, well, hey, he stood me up, which could then almost just play into the fact that it didn't work out so well in the last summit where president trump left early. >> well, there are several things here. first of all, one gets the sense with this tweet and then the further statement that nobody else really knew that it was coming, that one doesn't get the sense that it was well considered, that trump's advisers knew, that the allies knew. and in terms of what it does, undoubtedly these face-to-face meetings are something that the north korean leader has wanted. it gives him legitimacy. it's been very important to him. but at the same time, it hasn't produced anything in substantive terms. we've seen no substantive developments, no progress on the question of denuclearization which is the number one thing that president trump has wanted to achieve when it comes to north korea. so very little movement.
and giving something away that is very valuable, that the u.s. has to offer, which is that face-to-face meeting. so i don't see this as an intelligent step. >> and paul the same question, the complete verifiable denuclearization of tpeninsula. are we close to that? >> i think this is sort of off the cuff, that he will be in the dmz, so maybe he can meet with chairman kim. we'd like to see progress. truth it here in tokyo, we haven't seen any missiles fly over in a while, so that is certainly a positive thing. anything that moves along the talks is a good thing. >> another key point that was raised, and i'd like to get your thoughts on this, leslie, the disagreement or whatever the situation that is playing out with turkey, president trump saying that turkey bought the
s-400 system from russia, turkey also bought the stealth fighters from the united states. and president trump essentially saying, hey, under the previous administration, that is where the problem started. your thoughts on that. >> well, this is, you know, another example of where when the president doesn't want to actually address the issue, he does tend to refer back to policies or strategies that he's inherited. which at this point well over two years into his administration isn't the kind of answer that you would expect. but he is not taking a hard line on a number of these sorts of deals with leaders and countries in which we're seeing significant regression on any number of liberal value where there are very serious issues. so unsurprising, but i think the justification is problematic. >> leslie and paul, appreciate
your time and insight. so many topics to cover. we'll stay in touch with you throughout the next several hours. in the united states and around the world, you're watching "cnn newsroom" live. still ahead, president trump heads to south korea in the coming hours and we will go live to seoul as we come back to get a sense of what is to come. stand by. from l'oréal paris.ra voluptuous volume. intense length. feathery-soft lashes. this is what paradise looks like. lash paradise mascara from l'oréal paris. take your lashes to paradise. since my dvt blood clot i was thinking... could there be another around the corner? or could it turn out differently? i wanted to help protect myself.
my doctor recommended eliquis. eliquis is proven to treat and help prevent another dvt or pe blood clot... almost 98 percent of patients on eliquis didn't experience another. ...and eliquis has significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis is fda approved and has both. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. what's around the corner could be surprising. ask your doctor about eliquis.

rallying against his visit. paula hancocks is following that story and paula is live in seoul. what are you seeing? >> reporter: george, there are some sporadic protests, not just anti-trump, but a number of people pro trump as well. so certainly a fair group of people who support what the u.s. president is trying to do with north korea. we are expecting the u.s. president to touchdown here in seoul. he will be heading for a dinner with the south korean president moon jae-in and then he will be here tomorrow as well. but of course all the things that we were expecting have been completely overshadowed by what we have just heard from the u.s. president, the fact that he has put this invitation out to the north korean leader to meet him when he goes to the dmz, the demilitarized zone, saying that he hopes that he will be there, saying that he was asked in fact would you step across the border, the military demarcation
line, with kim jung-un, and he said sure, i'd be comfortable with that. let's listen to a little more of what the president had to say. >> kim jung-un was very receptive. he responded and so we'll see. because tomorrow we're going to the dmz. i said while i'm there, i'll shake his hand. we get along. there has been no nuclear tests. no long range ballistic tests. gave us back on yur hostages wh was great and a lot of good things are happening over there. so we'll see. i can't tell you exactly, but they did respond very favorably. >> reporter: and we also heard on statement media faster reaction than i think i've ever seen from the north korean media, the vice foreign minister saying that it was a very
interesting suggestion and saying that it would push the relationship between the two leaders further forward. but also said that they did want an official invitation. of course north korea isn't quite so fast and loose for these kind of invitations and the protocol as the u.s. president is. but he did say during that press conference that he did get a call from north korea or at least someone within his administration did. so it appears as though we could see a very interesting and historic once again meeting on sunday. >> it is known that the north korean leader was not happy with how the last summit ended. the u.s. president leaving early to the surprise of kim jung-un. what would you say, paula, to the suggestion that this could be an opportunity for kim jung-un to decide to meet or not decide to meet and leaving president trump to effectively say, hey, i was stood up.optics there, one for one, you know. what are your thoughts on that?
>> reporter: well, this is certainly a massive decision for the north korean leader and probably one that he didn't think that he would have to make. this is very unusual. certainly not the usual way of doing diplomacy, not way that north korea is used to dealing with the united states. but he knows as well as we all know that this is not your conventional u.s. president. mr. trump was asked about that in the press conference, what happens if kim jung-un decides not to show at the dmz. to which the president said, well, it doesn't matter, he doesn't think that it would be seen as a bad thing and that he went on to point out that kim jung-un clearly follows him on twitter and that moment was passed. but you're right, there was some animosity, there was hostility, there was humiliation on the part of north korea after the hanoi summit ended without agreement. and there was certainly surprise as well. so not much has changed when it comes to denuclearization or what has happened on the ground,
but we'll see what happens tomorrow. >> paula honest coancocks live awaiting the president. president trump spoke about watching the democratic debates that were happening back home while he was in japan. mr. trump says a clash between two of his potential democratic rivals because given too much attention. listen. >> i thought that she was given too much credit. he didn't do well certainly. and maybe the facts weren't necessarily on his side. i think that she was given too much credit for what she did. it wasn't that outstanding. and i think probably he was hit harder than he should have been hit. biden, i thought he was hit actually harder. >> mr. trump also when asked about busing during that news conference, he described busing as a primary method of getting people to school. so not really addressing this very important issue that
happened and was decided many decades ago. the former vice president had struggled to explain why he opposed federally mandated busing as a way to integrate schools. keon laue has details. >> reporter: joe biden defending his record on civil rights after an intense exchange. >> i respect senator harris, but we all know that 30 seconds to 60 seconds on a campaign debate exchange can't do justice to a lifetime committed to civil rights. >> reporter: speaking to the rainbow push coalition, a civil rights organization. >> i never, never, never ever opposed voluntary busing. >> reporter: kamala harris challenged biden's past. >> there was a little girl in california who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools. and she was bussed to school
every day. and that little girl was me. >> we want to have this campaign on who supports civil rightrigh i'm happy do that. i was a public defender. i didn't become a prosecutor. >> what is it that turned that made you discuss that some. >> i just think that on some of these issues, it is that the american public deserves to know how we come at our priorities. there are millions of people in our country who have personal experiences with this and that voice needs to be on the stage. >> reporter: a breakout moment fueling a throwback tweet and making headlines. >> america does not want to witness a food fight, they want to know how we are going to put food on their table. >> reporter: but harris had a debate stumble of her own. >> who here would abolish their private health 14ur7bs in favor of insurance in favor of a government-run plan? >> reporter: after the debate,
harris tried to explain her answer. >> so the question was would you be willing to give up your private insurance. >> that is not how it was asked. that is what you heard, right? >> that is certainly what i heard. >> reporter: the medicare for all plan harris supports would effectively eliminate private insurance with few exceptions such as for elective surgery not covered by the federal plan. the topic has tripped her before. >> i don't know if your insurance company will cover this. let's eliminate that. let's move on. it was in the context of let's get rid of all the better bureaucracy. wr . >> reporter: and pete buttigieg was asked a question about the officer involved shooting in south bend, indiana where he is mayor and the question is why black officer representation, the percentage of officers who are black in south bend, has not improved while he's been mayor. and the mayor saying very simply, quote, because i
