3:11 pm
that donald trump has been a lot more proactive than barack obama when it comes to russia and ukraine, he has sent to lethal weapons and advanced artillery to the ukrainians, president obama refused to do that. on the other hand he has made it very clear that he understands russia has much more direct interest then in crimea, i would be curious to hear what jennifer has to say, but i do not think that he will get much more deeply involved. >> and canceling that meeting and the g20, saying that it was ukrainian action, people speculated whether there was more to the cancellation or not. what you think? how big of an issue will it be here at the defense forum? >> i think it will be one of many flash points that they will be discussing. if you look at where we were a year ago, november 29th, 2017 and they had just fired their third intercontinental ballistic missile. all of the content at the forum was how did it deter
3:12 pm
north korea, now it is going to center around defense budget. that's where you will see a lot of flash points, because you have a new defense strategy that articulates that we are going to have to focus on and to deter russia and china, but it comes at a time when you just have the $716 billion budget of one of the largest of all time, and already the president is talking about having the defense department cut by 5% when they just start to deal with the readiness issues. you have a new democrat coming in as the head of the house armed services committee, adam smith wants to cut the defense budget, so the tension will be how do you do more with less budget? >> bret: there was are some amazing stories about the state of the u.s. military right now, charles is on my mind, here he is in 1986 talking about the reagan doctrine. >> i think it has now come to mean this policy of support for
3:13 pm
guerrilla movements, it is our leaf in liberation, and it amounts to a very significant shift in our history of containment. it is a new way to contain the soviet union, it is containment aimed at the latest acquisitions of the soviet empire. >> and he kind of explain that, chris, you are covering the white house during that time, is there a trump doctrine? >> let me also say that the reagan doctrine when it came to the russians was we win, they lose. and i think that president trump has a very different view of the world. first of all, america first, and we have alliances and adversaries, but we have a very narrow focus on what helps our country, and we see this with our enemies and our adversaries, for instance, nato. ronald reagan talked in a mormon enormous amount about it,
3:14 pm
president trump has much more of a tropical transactional sense of what our relationship is with nato certainly then ronald reagan did, it is america first, very narrow, take a look at saudi arabia, obviously we are horrified by the murder of jamaal khashoggi, but we have national security so we will put up with a lot of stuff. >> did you see the moments where the crown prince gave a high five to vladimir putin before one of those meetings today? i think we have that tape, it was quite interesting, there it is. almost saying i have your back, i don't know what that message was? >> i remember my interview with putin, and i said how come it is so many people that oppose you end up dead, and i wondered if they were thinking the same thing. >> this will be a lot of fun this weekend. >> it will be interesting, the one thing that reagan did not do as he did not cut the defense budget, so to cut 5% out of this defense budget is $30 million, what will that do to readiness
3:15 pm
and deterrence, that's what the discussion will focus on. >> bret: thank you very much, i will be interviewing the defense secretary tomorrow, you can see that on the fox news channel, the reason why charles krauthammer is on my mind is because his son will join us for his new book "the point of it all." he has completed the book, he edited it, but it was his father's book that he finished as he passed, the first time he is talking about it 6:00 monday. two earthquakes measuring 7.0 and 5.7 rocking anchorage today, incredible pictures and video at the damage done, still coming in from alaska as a neighbors to the north of me in california captured these images of the quake. no injuries have been reported, but dan springer joining us live from the northwest bureau with a look at the aftermath. good evening. >> good evening, still assessing the damage in and around
