Spalding: Trump knows where we need to go with national security strategy


AND THAT’S THE ANGLE. HERE TO RESPOND AND RETIRED BRIGADIER GENERAL ROBERT SPALDING AND LIEUTENANT COLONEL JAMES CARAFANO FROM THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION. JAMES, YOU BELIEVE THAT BOLTON WAS ACTUALLY PROMOTING TRUMP’S AMERICA FIRST POLICIES BUT IF THAT WAS THE CASE, WHY IS HE GONE?>>FIRST OF ALL, MY HEART IS BROKEN. IT IS LIKE THE CAPTAIN AND NEIL BREAKING UP. I LOVE THE YIN AND YANG BOLTON AND TRUMP. THE DYNAMISM WORKED REALLY WELL. THE FIRST POINT IS, LET’S REMEMBER BEFORE IT WAS KELLY, MATTIS, TILLERSON, THEY KEPT THE PRESIDENT FROM DOING THESE CRAZY THINGS AND THOSE GUYS ARE COMPLETELY GONE AND OUR FOREIGN POLICY IS EXACTLY THE SAME. NOW THAT BOLTON IS GONE, IT WILL BE EXACTLY THE SAME. THAT’S BECAUSE IT’S TRUMP’S FOREIGN POLICY. ALTHOUGH IT DIDN’T WORK OUT AND I’M SAD ABOUT THAT, THERE WERE THINGS BOLTON REALLY DIDN’T — PULLING OUT OF INF.>>Laura: HE WAS GREAT ON CHINA. BOLTON ON CHINA, FABULOUS. WE ARE SIMPATICO ON THAT ISSUE. SPEAK A REALLY STRONG ON BREXIT, HELPED PUSH BORIS JOHNSON ON BREXIT.>>Laura: YOU SEE WHAT I’M SAYING, GENERAL? WITH THE NEWS BROKE, IT DIDN’T SURPRISE ANY OF US BUT THE MEDIA ACTED LIKE PENCE RESIGNED OR SOMETHING. IT WAS WILD TO SEE THE CHAOS. YOU WERE THERE WERE McMASTER, YOU ARE AT THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL WHEN McMASTER WAS THERE SO WHAT DO YOU SAY? SPEAK OF THE PRESIDENT INHERITED CHAOS. WE’VE HAD POOR FOREIGN POLICY, NOT THINKING ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON IN CHINA. BASICALLY INTERVENING JUST ABOUT EVERYWHERE AND THE PRESIDENT SAID STOP. WE’RE GOING TO ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING MORE LIKE OUT OF EISENHOWER’S PLAYBOOK. HUSBAND OUR RESOURCES, STRENGTHEN THE ECONOMY, WORK ON THE INDUSTRIAL BASE, GET PREPARED FOR THIS ECONOMIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL COMPETITION WITH THE CHINESE AND WE ARE GOING TO STOP BEING EVERYWHERE, EXCEPT THE NATIONAL SECURITY’S ESTABLISHMENT SAID NO.>>Laura: HAVE THEY NOT OPPOSED HIM ALMOST EVERY STEP OF THE WAY?>>EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.>>PEOPLE FORGET H.R. HAD A GOOD YEAR. HE PUT A GOOD STRATEGY ON THE TABLE.>>Laura: LA LA LA LA LA.>>TRUMP IS STILL FOLLOWING THAT STRATEGY.>>Laura: I MET HIM. HE’S VERY NICE. IT’S NOT PERSONAL BUT IT’S ABOUT THE PRESIDENT’S AGENDA. HE WAS ELECTED AS A REPUDIATION OF BOTH OBAMA AND BUSH ON FOREIGN POLICY. I’M SORRY. A LOT OF PEOPLE, BUSH FRIENDS OF MINE, LOVE THEM DEARLY. I WAS A BIG SUPPORTER OF THE IRAQ WAR I THINK IT WAS A COLOSSAL MISTAKE. AFGHANISTAN, WE’VE GOT TO GET OUT OF AFGHANISTAN. WE CAN’T STAY IN OR 19 YEARS. I’M SORRY. YOU THINK WISHES TO BE THERE WITH MORE TROOPS? BECAUSE A POINT ABOUT H.R. LEAVING WIFE I DID A GOOD JOB FOR THE TIME AND HE WAS THERE AND FOR BOLTON, YOUR POINT IS RIGHT. THEY ARE NOT MOVING FAST ENOUGH FOR THIS PRESIDENT. THE PRESIDENT HAS A A HAS A PA THE PRESIDENT HAS A A HAS A PN AND HE WANTS RESULTS.>>Laura: HE IS FINE WITH OPPOSING VIEWS. HE THRIVES IN PART ON HEARING FROM LOTS OF INPUT BUT THEN HE MAKES A DECISION AND WHEN HE FEELS UNDERMINED AFTER US, PEOPLE ARE LEAKING TO THE MEDIA AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, THAT’S WHAT HE DOESN’T LIKE. I WANT TO PLAY SOMETHING FROM RAND PAUL. THIS IS WHAT HE SAID TODAY ABOUT THREATS PERHAPS DIMINISHED AROUND THE WORLD WITH BOLTON’S DEPARTURE. WATCH.>>I THINK THE THREAT OF WAR AROUND THE WORLD IS GREATLY DIMINISHED WITH BOLTON OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE. I THINK HE HAD A NAIVE POINT OF VIEW FOR THE WORLD THAT WE SHOULD TOPPLE REGIMES EVERYWHERE AND INSTITUTE DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENTS AND WE WOULD MAKE THE WORLD PERFECT OR REMAKE THE WORLD IN OUR IMAGE. FRANKLY, IT JUST DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY.>>HERE’S WHERE I DISAGREE. IT IS TRUMP’S POLICY, NOT BOLTON. TRUMP DOESN’T WANT TO FIGHT USELESS WARS.>>Laura: BOLTON WASN’T GOING TO LAUNCH A THERMONUCLEAR WEAPON. IT IS THE PRESIDENT’S DECISION AND THE PRESIDENT MADE THAT POINT SEVERAL TIMES OVER THE LAST SEVERAL MONTHS. I WANT TO TALK NOW ABOUT WHAT JIM ACOSTA SAID IN SCOLDING STEVE MNUCHIN TODAY. WATCH. I THINK WE HAVE IT.>>NATIONAL SECURITY TEAM.>>THAT’S THE MOST RIDICULOUS QUESTION I’VE EVER HEARD. THE NATIONAL SECURITY TEAM WHICH IS WHAT YOU ASKED, CONSISTS OF THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR, THE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE, THE SECRETARY OF STATE, MYSELF, THE CHIEF.>>Laura: SO HE LISTED ALL THE PEOPLE IN THE NATIONAL SECURITY APPARATUS, POORLY UNDERMINING WHAT THE MEDIA WAS TRYING TO DO WITH THIS STAFF DEPARTURE WHICH IS LONG IN THE COMING. GENERAL.>>I THINK BACK IN 2014 WE LOOKED AT WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH, WHAT WAS HAPPENING WITH CHINA AND EVERYTHING GOING ON WITH THESE INTERVENTIONIST WARS THAT WERE GOING ON AND WE REALIZED WE NEEDED TO BE FOCUSED ON BUILDING THE COUNTRY, BUILDING OUR STRENGTH, AND THE PRESIDENT, IT WAS STRANGE BECAUSE 2016, HE STARTS TALKING ABOUT INVESTING IN THE COUNTRY, BUILDING THE STRENGTH, TAKING CARE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. EVERYTHING WE HAD BEEN LOOKING AT IN THE PENTAGON. HE HAS THIS KIND OF SIXTH SENSE OF WHERE WE NEED TO GO WITH THE STRATEGY. I HAVE TO SAY.>>Laura: THE PEOPLE OF THE COUNTRY, JAMES, I THINK EVERY POLL SHOWS THIS. THEY DON’T THINK IT’S 1994 ANYMORE. IT’S NOT TOO THOUSAND THREE ANYMORE. WE ARE $20 TRILLION IN DEBT. AND YET WE HAVE FOLKS, FORMER BUSH PEOPLE RUNNING WEBSITES LIKE WE’VE GOT TO PUT MORE TROOPS IN AFGHANISTAN. I HEARD IT THE OTHER NIGHT, MIGHT’VE BEEN ON THIS NETWORK. I AM MOST FELL OVER. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THOSE DAYS ARE GONE AND THEY ARE NEVER COMING BACK.>>SAYING WE NEED TO TAKE THEM OUT AND THEN WE NEED TO PUT THEM BACK IN. THE DISCONNECT. WASHINGTON FOCUSES ON THE PROCESS AND THOSE COMMENTS, WE DON’T LIKE HIS STYLE POINTS, WHAT AMERICANS LOOK AT IS HE DELIVERING AND THEY LIKE THAT HE’S DELIVERING.>>Laura: I’VE GOT ONE MORE THING I WANT TO PLAY IF WE CAN. I WANT TO PLAY THIS. CONDOLEEZZA RICE WAS ON “CBS THIS MORNING.” SHE WAS DOING THE ROUNDS. SHE HAS A BOOK OUT. SHE WAS GIVING A BUNCH OF KIND OF FUN INTERVIEWS AND THIS IS WHEN I THINK THE PRESIDENT MIGHT’VE MISSED THIS PARTICULAR CLIP. LET’S WATCH.>>I HAVE SEEN THE RETURN OF WATER CALLED THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE. POPULISM, I WILL CITE NATIVISM, NOT NATIONALISM. ISOLATION AND PROTECTIONISM. WE HAVE DONE THAT BEFORE. THE LEAD TO A DEPRESSION AND WA WAR.>>THE GREAT DEPRESSION IS HERE. IT’S BEEN HERE SINCE 2001 WHEN CHINA AFTER THE WTO. WE LOST 70,000 FACTORIES, 3.4 MILLION MANUFACTURING JOBS. WE CAN’T EVEN MAKE CIRCUIT BOARDS FOR F-35’S. THAT’S HOW POOR OUR INDUSTRIAL

  1. Trump has no f*****g clue about national security strategy. He can barely draw a half circle with a Sharpie. Oops…too soon, MAGAsheep?

  2. "Trump knows…"
    Doubt it!
    Trump works for everyone who pays his bills. And after decades of money laundering for Russian oligarchs who do you expect Tronald Dumb is working for?
    Congrats American friends for having a Putin puppet at the red button.

  3. A TRUE LEADER HAS THE CONFIDENCE TO STAND ALONE
    THE COURAGE TO MAKE TOUGH DECISIONS
    THE COMPASSION TO LISTEN TO THE NEEDS OF OTHERS
    HE DOES NOT SET OUT TO BE A LEADER
    BUT BECOMES ONE BY THE EQUALITY OF HIS ACTIONS
    AND THE INTEGRITY OF HIS INTENT.
    THIS IS AMERICA'S CHOSEN PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP !

  4. Trump is playing chess and everyone else is scratching their heads and playing checkers.
    Trump is a genius at winning debates and making his opponents make fool's of themselves.

  5. Ah yes the guy who leaked an image showing our satellite surveillance capabilities. The guy who leaked on twitter information about US informants abroad who needed to be extracted for their own safety. The guy who can't get his facts straight, lies without remorse, and even stoops so low as to mislead the public about a dangerous storm because he didn't want to admit he made a mistake.

    This guy doesn't know *#@! about national security. Youtube, get this nonsense out of my recommendations feed.

  6. I'm surprised Fox News keep referring to the media as if they ain't part of the media. This is wrong description. Rather, other news agencies should be used.

  7. Funny, when the General mentioned that this country isn't capable of manufacturing the circuit boards for military hardware, the interview jump-cuts to the end…

  8. Yes – it''s Trumps policies – not Bolton's. Bolton doesn't want to get on board – Bolton wants war – Trump doesn't – sorry Bolton; you can't undermine me – got no time for disloyalty and Swamp behavior.

  9. Trump has done more for America than any other politician. He is far more trustworthy in the matters of national security than your other politicians, who are always leaking stuff to their friends, friends that often turn out to be foreign spies.

  10. Too many cavemen control the Pentagon,NSA,NSC…The CIA,hmmm,explodin' cigars,droppin' LSD on troops n citizens,asssassinations??? That was late 1950's thru 1960's fast-forward to Y2K to current mind altering psychological dubious n diabolical control/behaviour modification apps them n big tech,defence contractors as well as media corporations like Sony,IPhone,Android…READ SAFETY n HEALTH WARNING for PlayStation games ability to induce epileptic seizures by use o' colors!Deepstate is still dug in like fleas',Facebook launchin' television commercials? Defence contractors are worse than them hoodrats on welfare n foodstamps!

  11. Condoleeza is JUST PLAIN WRONG. For example: the 'isolationism' she talks of (in the period of post WW1 and pre-WW2) no longer exists. Rather it is the opposite: with the huge growth of the internet, trade, commerce and relationship exchanges – the modern situation is the opposite of that period. America CANNOT isolate itself from the world – but it can PUT AMERICA FIRST in all the types of exchanges (information, trade, commerce and relationships (family, civil, legal and diplomatic)). Inappropriate analogies lead to inappropriate conclusions. I like the lady but she is not thinking modernly – respect her, and she's written a book – good for her – it may be based on good information but the analysis is awry. Confirmation bias means we look in our grab-bag of evidence for what we want to see and ignore or discount the rest.

  12. I think it's clear that most people are absolutely disgusted with government. I think you all need to leave and stop being welfare recipients.

  13. ​The Trump derangement syndrome is a virulent disease

    Best president ever, Donald Trump. 💯MAGA 2020 KAG
    Keep up the great work you are doing, SIR

  14. "Before, it was the axis of adults; right, it was Kelly, Mattis, Tellarson, and HR; they kept the President from doing all of these crazy things." Oh, I see. So now the president can't stand on his own, like a child he needs to have somebody to keep him in check, so he doesn't do crazy things. I'm glad you straitened that out for us.

  15. TRUMP IS PROMOTING ROUTHCHILDS BANKSTER GANGSTER'S OF THE ILUMITI ZIONIST OF ISRAEL FOR ZIONISM FIRST.???. THEY ARE TRAITORS IN DC IN OUR U.S A. GOVERNMENT TODAY.??? "COMMITTING TREASON".

  16. Well, I heard that China is making the same mistake that America did in 2001, China is shipping its manufacturing into Africa step by step, as salary of Chinese workers rise up as high as America workers, those factories just move to low salary place.
    Just the nature of business, chasing lower cost.

  17. Is Mark Zuckerberg the President now? He's trying to get rid of the Federal Reserve and replacing it with Libra. He will be your King everyone.

  18. FOX is a tool to keep people ignorant just as the GOP wants so they get votes.
    Sen. Kerry Roberts (R): "If there is one thing we can do to save America today it's to get rid of our institutions of higher education right now…. And cut the liberal breeding ground off."
