the situation with pentagon press secretary john kirby we begin with fox team coverage trey yingst on the ground in ukraine in his conversation with ukraine president. the first to rich at the white house for. >> the united states is telling americans in ukraine is past time to leave the country. president biden warns russian plate president vladimir putin of swift and's consequences of russia invades ukraine for. >> the cost to russia both in terms of reputational cost and economic costs could be profoundly. >> russian troops have effectively surrounded ukraine as american officials any invasion of ukraine could come at any time. even before the olympics and next week. >> we cannot pinpoint that at this point. we cannot pinpoint the hour per. >> the white house as president biden spoke with russian president vladimir putin for about an hour saturday but officials say the conversation offered no fundamental change in the dynamics. state department is evacuating
most of the u.s. embassy staff is still in ukraine. >> we are continuing to draw down our embassy. we have also been very clear that any american sauce and left in ukraine should leave now for. >> the senior officials of the u.s. ascending 3000 additional soldiers to poland joining 1700 already dispatch there. the goal to reassure nato allies and deter any aggression against nato's eastern flank. the white house is stressed no american troops will fight in ukraine. russia has complained about its security with a nato expansion. russia already invaded ukraine in 2014 and seized crimea. also attack neighboring georgia in 2008. senior administration official said the u.s. is committed to de-escalation. but also said the white house is clear eyed about what is going on here especially given russia's massive military buildup, sandra. busy rich reporting for the white house forest, thank you
right now let's turn to trey yingst live in keio forest. hi trey. quick sandra good morning freda russian invasion could just be hours away. both countries continued military exercises. russian forces conduct live tank drills and of the border of ukraine. they are part of a massive troop buildup that american intelligence officials believe could invade at any moment. >> the truths that we have different information and now the best friend for enemies that is panic in our country for. >> ukrainian president zelensky downplayed the threat of invasion when asked by fox news for those older troops to launch a military exercises much like the russians for. >> we are less than 15 miles of the border of crimea right now where the ukrainian national guard and local police are conducting military exercises. >> on saturday at several thousand people marched the streets of kyiv send the ute
training national anthem reading putin is a war criminal. but despite the looming shadow of war, life in the capitol city of 3 million people mostly continues as normal. there is no panic buying no stockpiling. >> who live normally just like before. we do not make any preparations for anything extraordinary, we know it may happen but we hope it will not. >> the dick's can i steer is difficult to describe people behind me in the capitol of kyiv are having lunch and cafés will just a few hundred miles away there are russian tanks staging along the border and conducting drills, sandra. >> all right trey yingst reported from keio forest thank you. pentagon press secretary john kirby, admiral thank you for being here. there was clearly as we all witnessed a tone change on friday when jake sullivan briefed from the white house and the escalating situation on the ukraine border paid what specifically has the pentagon seen in recent days
that would suggest putin could invade ukraine any day now. >> i think jake talked about this is a combination of factors one we are seeing in plain sight continued accumulation of russian military capabilities along the border with ukraine and belarus he continues to add force capability well over 100,000 right now and over the last few days even more. number two i think a mosaic of the intelligence we are seeing. not speaking to it specifically we have good sources of intelligence they are telling us things are building now to crescendo opportunity for mr. potent. >> are we specifically sharing that intelligence with our ukrainian counterparts? it is remarkable he to hear trey yingst talk about the cafés filled, the bars and restaurants are packed and ukrainian people are going about their daily lives as normal but. >> i can say we are absolute sharing your information and
perspectives with ukrainian leadership as well as our nato allies and our partners in the region. we have been very transparent about what we are seeing, what our perspectives are and quite frankly listen to them about what they are seeing as well. >> specifically on the intelligence multiple new outlets including german newspaper are reporting the u.s. secret service, the cia and the pentagon have received intel of an exceptionally detailed invasion plan scheduled for this wednesday just a few days away. can you confirm or deny those reports? >> i am not in a position to confirm those reports sandra think you can understand we want to be careful about publicly talking about intelligence, sources, methods and that kind of thing bear point back to it jake said on fridays absolutely right. we believe a major military action could happen any day now. and again these assessments are coming from a variety of sources. not exclusively just inside intelligence but also what we are seeing in plain sight too. more than one 30,000 troops be
ready to raid against the border pray. >> ukrainian president is insisting they would be privy to the intelligence that is leading the united states to believe the situation is escalating as quickly as it is. you said you're sharing information for you sharing specifically intelligence many ukrainians are saying we are still in confusion and chaos there is a country quickly been very transparent with ukrainian leadership about our perspectives and what we are seeing. i think i will leave it at that. sandra: one security at briefed reporters after the phone call yesterday said there's no fundamental change in the dynamic that is unfolded now for several weeks. is that a sign after that phone call yesterday at that time running out for diplomacy? >> is certainly not a sign things are moving in the right direction. certainly not assign mr. putin is any sign to de-escalate the
tension. it certainly recommit ourselves to a diplomatic path forward. it is not gives any cause for optimism. >> vice chancellor, said today admiral we may be on the verge of war in europe their words, germany chancellor's going to be traveling to moscow twos issue well known to meet with vladimir putin. is this a last ditch effort to avoid all out war in europe it. >> out if i was a last ditch but certainly we recognize the time component here seems to be shrinking. that gives us all cause for concern. but again we have set it we still believe it today. there is still a time and a space for a diplomatic path forward but we still believe to de-escalate and find a peaceful way out of this. we still believe there is an opportunity these moves by our european allies to try to engage mr. putin democratically. >> president biden had pretty
stark warning to americans currently in ukraine saying they should leave now and that u.s. troops will not be deployed inside ukraine to help evacuate them if they stay. >> that is exactly right. this is the time if you are an american citizen in ukraine you really should be making your way out. again we believe a major military action could be only days away could happen any day now quite frankly. now is at the time to be in ukraine. he should make plans to leave immediately. as the president has said the u.s. troops will not be fighting in ukraine. now we have added some forced posture of ready a very robust forced posture of 80000 troops. add some to that to reassure allies and deter aggression against the nato alliance. there is no plan, no expectations troops are going to be going into ukraine. >> this is what the president had to say this week in a new interview, listen. >> what are your plans towards american citizens who are in ukraine and might be there during an invasion?
what scenarios would you put american troops to rescue and get americans out? >> were not that's a world war when they start shooting at one another we are in a very different world than we've ever been in for. >> not even simply evacuating americans? >> know how do you do that how do you find them? this is not like i'm hoping he is smart enough not to infect you anything that that would negatively impact on american citizens. >> so admiral come outside of a military evacuation what assistance can americans expect that they struggle to leave ukraine? >> the state department set up information portals on their website and at the embassy there which is still in kyiv to assist americans with and whatever they do even his financial assistance. the state department is very much focused on this, willing to assist americans. and sandra i would say again this is not a new mantra for us. we are urging them to leave
right now for the state department has done nothing but transparent over the last several weeks to leave ukraine the need not to go there. there's plenty of time to do this there's plenty of infrastructure in ukraine right now to do that. the airports are still running, the railroads are still running, the highways are still open there is plenty of opportunities for americans to jule leave they really need to take these warnings and advisories very seriously. >> plenty of time to still impose new sanctions on russia which you have been against, the white house has been against it. it's only being used to deter russia as a consequence of a deed invade. considering diplomacy seems to not be working at this point, would you be supportive of imposing sanctions preemptively? >> we have talked about this, sandra, few if it is a deterrent use it before the aggression is made or the transgression is made you lose your deterrent effect. if you punish someone for seven they have it done at the will go ahead and do it.
we believe there is a deterrent effect by keeping them in reserve and we have been very clear with the international community and with mr. putin about the severity of the economic consequences that he could face. sandra: imposing sanctions before putin were to invade a set off the table? >> right now we are not considering a preemptive sanction regime. >> finally went to ask about the washington post reporting they were through a request able to dig up a 2000 page report. they were reporting on the declassified documents on afghanistan speaking of transparency, that do back u.s. commanders that said president biden's team was indecisive during that crisis, during the evacuation. what is your response to that as a description of that analysis is the exit of afghanistan and it shows in full detail. >> i think we need to keep
these documents in perspective. they're basically interview documents that are meant to assist our investigation into the bombing which we of course unveiled and revealed a couple of weeks ago. that's of the source of the talk to investigators did not think they're going to become public for they were not talking to reporters are talking to investigators were trying to get at a very deadly and they were talking about appropriately what they saw there at the airport paired with a experience and they are in and afghanistan in real time. their valuable documents that use for much larger after action review the pentagon is conducting right now. what was happening over the doha agreement was signed in for every 2020 and a larger strategic level. i would also add here in washington we have been planning for evacuation as far back as april. there was no effort by washington and certainly not the national security council specifically to slow down that planning, to slow down those positioning of forces we did
in the summer to slow down the actual execution of the evacuation. so again these were documents that assert impressions and perspectives which are very important down at the tactical level we need to conduct a larger more strategic level after action review to get at the scent of it. were doing that. sandra: admiral kirby from the pentagon appreciate your time this morning, thank you very much for. >> my pleasure thank you. pentagon press secretary john kirby there we thank you for joining us. energy security of courses met the center of this entire conflict. from a very energy state louisiana senator bill cassidy. welcome and welcome back to fox news sunday good to see you. >> hey, thanks for having difficulty just on my interest pentagon press secretary on the splitting tensions excluding tensions with russia and ukraine what would your take away from what you just heard? >> yes. this is a culmination of the united states kind of de-
arming when it comes to energy diplomacy. think about it, less than a year ago under the previous administration we were not only energy independent that we are poised to have the ability to make the east you energy independent. less then a year we have lost that ability so russia has the leverage over the eu to blackmail them and turning a blind eye. you could argue they're trying not to but germany's response has been quite muted to this apparently pending invasion. i would say this is a culmination of a failed energy geopolitical policy. sandra: on that note general kain and others have said is as much a leverage as we make it out to be considering and gas is not yet flowing through that nord stream2 pipeline. it's not currently a revenue source for vladimir putin. is it as much a leverage as many are making it out to be that pipeline?
>> there still nordstrom one there still liquefied natural gas shipments and by the way energy prices are much higher in europe right now than they traditionally are. it does have an impact on individuals pocketbooks and upon their economy. we've already seen a kind of hint of that leverage. it could obviously increase should the russians decide to further exploit you. >> strongly encouraging me and what we heard us talk about this a moment ago encouraging americans in ukraine to leave as soon as possible. says there's no prospect for u.s. military evacuation from inside ukraine. so, should the u.s. be doing more about this? >> i agree the president one 100%. use some common sense but we should not be endangering our soldiers or marines et cetera because somebody decides not to evacuate until after the fact. get out. if there is a pending invasion
use common sense, leave. >> art center the president this week vowed to end that pipeline if russia invades ukraine. germany said it is united with the u.s. in that decision but he did so standing next to president biden at the white house. so, if that pipeline is we just discussed remains halted germany will lead on other former nations as you know for a significant amount of their energy needs. what can we be doing as a country today knowing the resources that we have and can tap into as you just mention paired what can we be doing to prepare for what will likely be an energy crisis in europe if russia does invade. >> we must resume using america's resources, ramping them up in order to provide a replace that which russia would provide paid by the way that means beginning to lease in the outer continental shelf off of louisiana for the long development of oil and natural gas and public lands on the inland.
speeding up for the lng export facilities also include permitting for the renewable right now this administration is putting the ability of the u.s. to expand its energy supply. we are paying more for gas and natural gas. it's why the eu is. we have to ease that not only for ourselves but for the eu. >> your home state of louisiana provides more natural gas exports than any other state. and of course we know you have access to whole lot more. if you are the republican senators met this week with the eu commissioner for energy. are there any promises made that we will be able to meet europe's energy needs in the future? >> senators cannot promise that the administration slow walks everything by every means possible to decrease u.s. energy production.
now, the administration can take laws that are on the book interpret them in such a way sometimes in direct conflict with the stated means of the cloth to slow down production for that is what this administration is doing. they are doing it in the name of lowering carbon intensity so now germany is burning coal and said natural gas. not only are weakening more carbon intensity were also putting our european allies at the threat of economic downturn and allowing them to be leveraged by russia. this administration energy policy is a failure in terms of the climate. in terms of national security, the economy in terms of you name it. >> senator, i want to move onto the great mask debate. we saw a lot of it this week. and indeed this week we saw democrat and republican governors alike dropping or winding down their indoor or school mask mandates. in your state right now, louisiana the governor has encouraged mask wearing they
are. but schools can't opt out of mask as long as they filed the quarantine guidelines. if the cdc and the white house are still recommending wearing masks and areas will share the map of department of health that indicates community risk right now is very high all over the state. so it should kids be wearing masks in louisiana schools, sir? >> we have to follow the science. if the science says masks is of marginal benefit but that the cost of the child is of more than marginal costs, then we have to follow the science. and i will just say that. because clearly what's happened over the last year children have suffered from it locked out of school and some say from wearing the mask. i am a dark, that is what i believe that's what we should do. >> that's what makes a very unique senator, right? we've seen some major battles playing out over who has final
say on mask mandates for the children, schools or the governors? in your home state there left up to local school districts. is that the right approach senator or should they be able to supersede local authorities and whizzing recently in states like virginia? >> i am a conservative i think he or she who governs closest to those governs, governs best. i do think that should be a local decision i said that as it wrapped rib conservative. sandra: great to have me send joanie's my great state of louisiana, senator cassidy thank you very much. and up next we will bring in our sunday group to discuss the russia/ukraine conflict the russia/ukraine conflict and growing inflation in the that's a pretty tight spot. watch this. of course your buick parks itself. that's so you. it's just up here on the right. of course you know where we're going. that's so you. i kinda got a sixth sense. and a head up display.
if you look at the disposition of forces in belarus and brush on the other side ukrainian border from the north into the east. the russians are in a position to be able to mount a military action in ukraine any day now. >> is white house national security adviser jake sullivan adopting a more urgent tone as he discusses the prospects of military action in eastern europe. it is time now for sunday group to recent of the wall street journal and author of the new book the black boom, joanna former obama white house official and jury executive washington editor of the wall street journal. welcome to all of its great to spend the sunday morning with you. joanna i'll start with you first. we heard friday a major shift in town from the white house communications on ukraine when jake told and stepped up to the microphone at the white house friday. did you make of that
heightened sense did you sense the urgency from the administration we heard from him? it's wonderful to see you again. great to join jason on the super bowl sunday. i'm absolutely concerned about we should all be concerned. now some french i packed the thing about china the next hot 100 years. this wasn't about russian feuding and renovating it crane it's china watching russia invade ukraine. those subsequent events that could happen. we've got russia and china now saying to all of us that working together in artificial intelligence, on internet, on climate, and all these things. so while i appreciate the administration is moving forcefully lease are still planning into and four-year
segments went russia and china are looking at the next century. sandra: gerry i'm curious from you whether or not the white house may look back and think they got this wrong. if russia does not invade, will they be accused of overhyping the situation not showing enough of what they knew? considering ukrainian president zelensky has been demanding to know what the u.s. knows that is leading to this escalating tone coming from the white house. >> i don't think that is likely i think the white house strategy here is to make innovation less likely by yelling at the top of their voice and invasion could be coming and therefore use that as a deterrent factor gets vladimir putin. and so novel strategy and maybe working. some people think there won't be an invasion vladimir putin could blink very think it's in part to keep it in perspective
if this happens i'll be potentially the largest land war in europe since world war ii. one of the things of vladimir putin may be thinking is he's already waiting to some extent because it is hurting the ukrainian economy simply by unmasking troops the investment dries up and ran out the grading government was keeping of reserves to defend its own currency. there may be an element here of vladimir putin wanting people to get alarmed that helps stabilize ukrainian government may build to what he wants is a changing and without having to invade the. >> it doesn't seem about talking to admiral kirby a moment of the white house is considering sanctions as a preemptive still being used as a deterrent of vladimir putin is to invade. should be beasts considering sanctions now? >> absolutely. not just sanctions.
one of the problems i've had with the biden strategy as they taken off the table is strong with deterrence we can put for which is the threat of u.s. troops in ukraine if russia invades. once that is off the table it weakens our hand considerably. i think that is part of the problem. vladimir putin was looking what happened in afghanistan. our clumsy at best exit from there. even our decision to exit he was witnessing. and i think he senses a weakness. he senses division and is an opportunist. i agree with gerry about the consequences of going in the economic consequences to your. europe cannot just be facing an energy crisis here. it could be facing a refugee crisis for the some 44 million people in ukraine from the date share a border with four european union countries. if russia invades millions of people could flee ukraine into
europe. europe is a crisis this could dwarf that. i understand the lack of interest in helping us out here because they are so energy dependent on russia but they could pay a price for that hesitancy. sandra: him to give thought from each of you on inflation some pretty big numbers this week showing 7.5% was the biggest jump we have seen in u.s. inflation as a nation in 40 years this is a reality for many american families to you gerry from the wall street journal, what are we doing about this to bring the consumer crisis down? >> the study we came out that said the average family household has $276 and months and cost because of inflation right now. this is real it's across the board everyone feels it. the difficult part for the biden administration is not a lot in the short run you can do about it. one thing they can do it some are urging us a few more
things to get the supply chains untangled. reduce pressure on at least one point that's added to the inflationary spiral. sandra: a lot of pressure on the federal reserve as well. joanna, quick that from you on inflation. you got these massive price hikes but yet the white house is pushing a spending bill trying to do so at least across the finish line. >> look i agree with gerry at one present is not responsible for inflation. we are still feeling the effects from closing the global economy in march 2020. i think president biden is doing everything he can to address it. going back really quickly on the point of president biden be responsible for potent aggression president trump undermine our intelligence agency to pollutant. i think a lot of blame is there and think we as americans need to come together focus on the next 100 year strategy for american dominance. sandra: jason report that from you've got to leave it there. >> this is why americans are
still sour on the economy for the wages a rep that is troop up those wages been gobbled up by inflation. this is going be a political problem for democrats of the head into the election by. >> keep shows up in the number one issue for voters in a midterm election year. one might want to take notice you're good to have us all here today to our panel thank you very much. up next to your to do the pandemic we are stink states across the political spectrum rollback mandates will discuss
republicans who have rollback statewide mass commanded by their actions going against recommendations for the white house and cdc. joining us not factors driving these decision the governor of colorado. governor welcome great debbie back on fox news sunday. >> great to see you, sandor paid. >> your state has not had a statewide mask mandate since last year in december you say the emergency is over. if left in the mandate decisions up to local officials but this weakness on number of democratic governors follow your lead part however the white house has a different take as well some other democratic governors, take a look at what the president said this week. >> i committed i would file the science. the science as put forward by the cdc. and that federal people. i think it is probably premature it is a tough call. >> the governor, does the divide cause confusion for people in states like yours
who are not under mandatory mask requirements? >> in colorado we have an added requirement for over a year the cdc puts out his guidance their recommendations on science. the cdc does not mandate anything. it is really been up to the local governments and in some sense and governors to determine when or if people need to wear a mask. the most important thing is that should be an individual decision. people should be empowered with the information they need to protect themselves. the truth is if you are at risk i use my parents as an example they are 77 and my mom has some respiratory conditions. yes they use medical grade masks when they're out around others but that should be an individual decision based on the science and the data. sandra: of governor, is a white house getting this issue wrong? celexa cdc is putting forward guidance but it's not mandated for anybody crates they should not and do not mandate mask
for any bites very heavy thing for any level of government to try to tell people what to where it should only be under extreme circumstances the cdc sticks to the guidance no political interference from the biden's hopefully is no political interference the trump of the ministration get that message out hopefully it's one individuals will look at and take into account will live with the profile for cracks you reference the cdc they maintain in their stand that children should still be wearing masks in the classroom. >> i think what the white house is doing and should be doing is saying look at the cdc guidance. again, and districts where it wearing is not required its nearly every district in colorado some parents with their kids to work masks for an extra level of safety. maybe they are asthmatic, maybe they have a pre-existing condition for those are all reasonable decisions there's no right or wrong here. there's something more important whether you were mask or not and that is
civility and respect through someone who does not like wearing a mask, respect those who do. if you like someone wearing a mask please respect those who don't for a quick sound like little common sense right governor? will see if that is in place when many of these changes take place the transition could be difficult. okay governor brand-new numbers released this week showing the nationwide inflation spike to a 40 year height last month. 7.5%. president biden offered his take of what is the price hikes to consumers. >> the reason for inflation is the supply chains were cut off meaning the products for example automobiles, the lack of computer chips to be able to build those automobile so they can function they need those computer chips. >> your state is suffering from one of the highest inflation rates in the nation, sir. is the president right on this issue? is there more to these high
prices consumers are paying? >> it's hard to say he doesn't get part of it right. clearly the supply chain issues both the trucking and international trade are part of the cause you see people you have fees are thrilled to see senator kelly at the national ever put forward and suspend the national gas tax it saves 18 cents a gallon. were trying to similar thing in colorado to avoid a 2-cent a gallon for young gases will try to cut fees on a lot of other services people need it. sandra: you bring up the gas taxes is really interesting. to bring some relief at the local level there in your state you suggested delaying a new gas tax. this is just a month after you signed into law. is that an admission that was about eight in the first place? >> knows of the time to increase the gas tax verbally fought for in that bill was a lowering the gas tax paired
but we got in the bill was a lowering vehicle registration fees in colorado by $11.50. we want to continue the reduction of $11.50 a vehicle registration fees and of course have always been supportive of cutting the gas tax. >> i want to move on to crime there's been a lot of big stories at the national level in the news this week. they ignore state colorado falls very low on the list of safest places in the nation ranked 39th safest estate in america it let's with us in a violent crime numbers since 2019 in colorado murders are up 48% break assaults up 34%, robberies are up 15%. you said your goal for colorado stream at ten state in america. it enters a public safety plan of action to hopefully reach that goal. however the colorado fraternal order of police and the shares of colorado are not embracing your plan for they are citing concerns of anti- law enforcement sediment. how do you plan to bridge the
gap between your plan and law enforcement to combat the rising crime rates in your state sir? >> result many, many police chiefs and sheriffs are fully supportive of our plan. a plan fundamental invests in helping retain and recruit law enforcement. we have sheriffs department, police department 70 -- 80% capacitive early retirements they cannot successfully recruit and train. we need and help to make sure we have the police on the ground we need to protect her from us in colorado to make our state where the safest. in addition to that we need investments in behavioral health, and diversion, and making sure we can prevent crimes before they occur by having youth intervention programs and programs within our prison walls it's a thoughtful approach law enforcement is a big part of it there's a lot more to it. at the crime issue is simple it would've been solved who we
are committed to losing a police chiefs, sheriffs and experts across the country to have a data-driven appointment colorado the safest states. sandra: thank you for joining us on fox news and it's always good to speak with you thank you for. >> always good to see you thank you sander. >> up next will bring back our sunday group on the rise of convoy protest in canada and elsewhere.
will have on americans if it continues? gerry to you first. >> look, it's hard to have an impact producing auto plants having to slow down or shut down temporarily not just in canada but the u.s. as well but when that happens people lose a work they lose their paychecks for it is not necessarily great way to win support for your cause for the truckers honestly. i think that is just beginning starting in the auto industry is not only going to be the auto industry if this continues you're going to see ripple out across the supply chain at a time or talk about supply chain disruptions already. when part of the answers that problems get more trucks on the roads not fewer. >> you've got to wonder, what the white house is saying behind the scenes to canadian prime minister trudeau as this movement seems to be gaining traction and spreading. >> it isn't. someone who grew up in buffalo, new york which is right on the canadian border, frankly i'm a little
embarrassed that our neighbors to the north known for their friendliness or exercise in the kind of rebellion usually associated with the americans pretty wish more americans were adopting the civil disobedience added to the truckers have. the larger message as even canadians are fed up with the emergency covid nonsense. it is time to end these mandates. it's not just in canada we are seeing in europe, brussels were seeing it in new zealand. and people want their freedom back. i think that's the message being seen yet cents but even at the provincial level and can adjust and trudeau sing pushback from members of his own party on these mandates produce time to rethink them. >> too that point we aren't seeing the start to pop up in new zealand, there is a convoy protest happening in france. police had to deploy, be deployed to fired tear gas to disperse some of the crowds there. truckers in the u.s. are now,
johanna potentially playing their own convoys as seems to be spreading. several gridlock and traffic ahead of the state of the union address, what would a biden administration firm your view, what should their response look like to that? >> look, i think you have to be consistent that shutting down traffic is not okay with the protests. look, we've seen a number of protests shut down traffic it's interesting to me the right and the left say they're okay with one side not the other. no one should shut down traffic. the truth is when protesters have a problem with the president and the president's mandate they're taken out on the people. so the american people are the ones to suffer. i really hope this doesn't happen pretty healthy by demonstration takes a strong stance to prevent any shutdowns that will impact average americans.
i think the bigger issue is always political polarization of a pandemic. that by even in virtue of us having this conversation continues. we all need to take a step back. listen to exactly what we need to do to come together, overcome this pandemic and move forward together for. >> listening is always good. pacific countries able to do that will some republican politicians, gerry the peaceful purchase including former president trump which lead to even more attention for these protests. what is the impact of some right wing support expressed from the u.s.? >> it is a two edge sword producer of the going to see more politicians latch onto this is got a populist appeal. president trump is certainly done that. it's a little like the tea party movement that started out with bailouts morphed into a larger populist cause. the dangerous and far right groups are latching onto this as well print that could turn it darker and maybe even violent that is the danger i think.
