a two hour unscripted speech to explain after the break. back skies are one for my guide to financial survival this is. a device used by professional scallywags to earn money. that's right. not accountable. to the. global economy you need to protect yourself and get in for. lost its moral compass and maybe if to put more values into the system my true. multinational institutions are living in the dark ruled it's like.

having always. come to action so we need to put back to the system and we need stronger leadership and better leadership. trump a north korean leader kim jong un along with their retinues and thousands of journalists descended on the capital of vietnam for a bilateral summit the much hyped talks failed to produce any deal on north korea's denuclearization or the lifting of u.s. sanctions against pyongyang trump and kim just unable it seems to agree on but despite little had. washington and pyongyang did say that the dialogue will
2:15 pm
continue and as an apparent goodwill gesture the u.s. and south korea suspending their annual joint military exercises the pentagon says that's to reduce tension and to advance denuclearization on the peninsula but the drills have not in fact being counseled rather replaced by another set of exercises to scale him open take stock of the second trump summit. the talks in hanoi between trump and cam were complete failure or well bob trump says the talks failed because of what he says were unreasonable demands they wanted the sanctions lifted. in their entirety and we couldn't do that but that is not how north korea remembers the meeting what we proposed wasn't the removal of all sanctions but they were partial removal we proposed to the united states articles of sanctions that impede the symbol of economy and the law of our people so with conflicting information about what actually took place at the meeting between the two leaders we've now got
2:16 pm
the u.s. state department issuing an explanation of the explanation after the talks flopped in hanoi trump jumped on a plane to alaska it was certainly not singing the song of peace as he praised the troops america does not seek conflict but if we are forced to defend ourselves we will fight and we will win in an overwhelming fashion you are a powerful warning to the world to never strike american soil you are a warning that everybody knows about and nobody wants to play with you would think that with the utter trainwreck that was the talks with pyongyang that donald trump would be cruising for a bruising when he got back to the united states however that doesn't seem to be the case the epic failure seems to have been met with pretty broad approval both democrats and republicans seemed rather chipper about it it's good that the trend isn't good not getting many things was a little bit that he was proposing the north koreans walk away thinking you know
2:17 pm
they've got they've won and gradually they will see they were sanctions regime begin to erode then they've won and frankly that would be unfortunate i was smart to expose the north korean delegation to the god of our economic prosperity that could be possible it's a good thing that he walked away rather than agreeing to something that was badly flawed democratic presidential candidate toasting gabbert seem to stand alone invoicing disappointment kim jong un has clearly stated that he is holding on to these nuclear weapons as his only deterrent against the united states coming. and waging a regime change war in north korea so you know i'm deeply concerned about the fact that this summit yesterday ended without an agreement it's not surprising because of this policy this regime change our policy my pompei all laid out the washington consensus with rather sharp terminology america has a responsibility to protect itself by pushing back against those evil nations and
2:18 pm
those evil leaders who intend to do real harm to the world yes much like george w. bush with his rhetoric about evil doers donald trump is not setting himself up to winning nobel peace prize any time soon but most of the political establishment that normally hates donald trump seems to think that that's a ok mop and artsy new york. political expose told is the trump ministrations who. owns approaching north korea's trust in white house promises. it was not no deal versus bad deal it was a missed opportunity and the real question remains whether what was it that caused president or chairman kim for that matter to stand up and walk away hour and a half early i think there's a crisis in confidence between north korea in the us you know kim knows what's going on in the world and he looks around and he sees unfortunately and
2:19 pm
depressingly the united states simply doesn't keep its word around the world trump is going trying to show success he and that i think was one of the considerations in the discussions in in vietnam over over north korea missiles the reality is is a trump is looking to make a deal and to show international success and to so that he can have something to come back to and to offset the turmoil the inter the political turmoil he's facing back home but if we've taken over isis in syria then the question remains what about the troops u.s. troops who are there in syria what will happen with them those are questions of remain unanswered back at home varying off script stunning trumps given a two hour speech at the conservative political action conference but it seems that there's been little change to the topics with the russia probe dominating.
2:20 pm
america is winning again. america is respected again. say something like russia please if you can get us hillary clinton's e-mails. so everybody's having a good time mom laughing we're all having fun and then that fake c.n.n. and others. russia to go good. moral collusion with russia the collusion delusion. had a nasty business transaction with robert muller a number of years ago i said why isn't that mention he wanted the job as f.b.i.
2:21 pm
director i mean these are things that are out there. it was in america first in many cases it was america last we are reversing decades of blunders and betrayals you know i'm totally off script right now. and this is how i got elected by being off script. but this hand was apparently also found with putin accused of being the man behind the speech. how many pieces parts of president putin's to do less was president trying trying to accomplish today he was also saying things that really look like lattimer putin scripted his speech these people some of them millionaires billionaires the best the brightest squad made up giving you the best and they actually said that nobody came in with a hawk nobody no white coat came in and sedated them and say would you lads when
2:22 pm
you were at least wait let the russian thing go home now i'm not trying to tell people what to do but one could argue that there are some things that president drop has said that might be care isapi can't controversial you're my one to go there this is trump arrangement but there is a trump hifi and putin hyphen russia during syndrome this is a preoccupation a pavlovian obeys and it's this weird kind of a connection it's an obsession an obsessive compulsive. reaction that they can not let go. while the u.s. media continues to hunt for a link between the president of the team and putin donald trump's describes former lawyer michael cohen first provide any evidence of collusion with russia when he
2:23 pm
testified before congress on wednesday members of the house accused him of being a liar cohen a previously pleaded guilty to lying to congress about term suppose connections to moscow but this time he pulled no punches when talking about his former boss. today i am here to tell the truth about. he is a racist. is a con man. and he is a cheat mr trump knew of and directed the trump moscow negotiations throughout the campaign and lied about it and i have never asked for nor would i accept a pardon from president trump ladies and gentlemen how on earth is this witness credible he's a fake witness his presence here is a travesty and you have a history of lying over and over and over again he said we were in search of the truth i don't believe that michael coleman is capable of telling the truth he lied
2:24 pm
to congress through false statements and written statements he lied to congress through his testimony even able to fight his false statements by releasing him refuting his lies to the public with it. because it. was a trump comfort zone for more than a decade after his moment in the spotlight he'll begin a three year prison sentence in the spring the tanks and banking fraud as well as lying to congress we discussed his testimony with former us republican congressman michael patrick flanagan. as we call it in the united states when election season comes near we call it the silly season and in the silly season silly things happen this is a little early. something that you'd see in the silly season cohen is willing to use the word racist and criminal and liar and anyone who's willing to speak in that absolute in that strongest terms in washington will always have an audience on one side or the other there was just an angry man who wanted to be chief of staff who
2:25 pm
didn't get to be chief of staff who is furious he could make a ton of money off the trump name after trump was elected president has decided after all that he needs to get even in a vicious new york stupid sort of way and so he's going to come to congress and lie some more he's been disbarred for lying to the state of new york despite of the polls his law license because he's a liar a man who took their promise who took that oath and then took another oath in front of congress and has lied constantly can't be trusted ever to tell the truth even if he is telling the truth it will require cooperation substantiation and some backup and none of that was provided i say without say it was appreciated here on vent with the dice and often are. play. play.
2:26 pm

hello and welcome to worlds apart adam smith the four father of modern economics the one sad death resentment is the safeguard of justice and the security of innocence the latest wave of resentment that produced cracks it and don't trump is open discounted as populism or russia's plotting but isn't it and then they have a terrible and authentically western response to the injustices and abuses of globalization while to discuss that i'm now joined by frank you're going to retire founder and chairman of harasses the global visions community mr richter's good to talk to you thank you very much for the time music for having me now i know that you worked for a number of european multinationals in china you saw globalization up close and personal and you usually speak very favorably about it but i wonder if that's not their vantage point bias if you happen to observe with let's say from the american

midwest wouldn't your views be a little bit different. me currently experiencing a crisis of globalization the deep seated resentment of globalization is spoiling over old white create portion of the rule is perceiving to itself a school work station loses this resentment is excited to fight by the movement in france but also by the rise of donald trump and i guess most of those who voted for donald trump globalization to those one of the things that we usually hear about globalization is that it lifted millions of people out of poverty and that is undeniable nobody argues but if you happen to be had of a multinational company it would have also benefited your bank account in very very generous ways whereas if you are a blue collar worker who saw his factory closed and a shopping mall opened in its place what did bad fits of globalization be just as apparent well globalization is here to stay there's no doubt about it but i think
2:30 pm
we have to redefine globalization and maybe catalyze the benefits of globalization you put it right. the anglo-saxon model of capitalism and the globalization eastern crisis even so we have seen an economy crowe's over the last few would take it's not everybody is spending fitting from globalization we see a shrinking of the middle class in america and in europe and even saw on the surf ace a lot of economic success the middle class are shrinking and less people who can really benefit from globalization well let's talk about why that happened as asian clearly has benefited export oriented economies like china or germany much more and much more evenly than imports oriented economies including the united states is it really surprising that that the pushback against globalization or the current form of globalization with the region eight in america wasn't of balun to.
