6:34 am
relations with asia? >> absolutely and i spoke with a former diplomate earlier and said it was a really bad signal to the nations of this region that obama didn't come. and again because of the ttp negotiation the united states is pushing this forward and want the negotiations done by the end of the year and said that will impact us directly and also sends a signal if there is an american pivot both economically and militarily and involvement in asia why can't the president come a couple of days and we know the reason is because the government is partially shut down but it's very -- sending a bad signal he was not able to come and john kerry filling in the role but really not having the weight obama would have if he were here and also giving the sales pitch for tpp in his speech to the ceo members today. so it's really a glaring omission that president obama is not here. >> and not envy of you being
