lethal that people were shocked to hear what gas it was, that crosses many, many lines, beyond the red line. >> reporter: mr. trump also argued if president obama had launched military strikes in 2013 in confirm to the first chemical attack things might be different now. >> i think the obama had a great opportunity to solve this crisis when he said the red line in the sand. >> a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons. >> assad crossed that red line in 2013 killing more than a thousand people with gas. president obama backed off after the british parliament failed to support a military strike and congress bached. at the time mr. trump supported staying on the sidelines saying president obama, do not attack syria. there is no upside. >> the status of president assad will be decide the by the syrian people. >> reporter: as recently as last

7:08 am
with their mother. even in the hell of syria's civil war this attack was notable for his bar ba rich. men, women and children left gasping for air and foaming at the mouth. autopsies on three of those who lost their lives were carried out at this institute. they died after being brought into the country for treatment with around 30 others. >> reporter: survivors who had been brought here to turkey can be tested for a chemical agent but across that border inside the war zone gathering evidence is more difficult and more dangerous. the streets are now unnaturally quiet. two days after these astrosty, many of its residents have fled but some are taken samples from the scene of the attack. they want to prove what it was that killed their loved ones.

7:10 am
happened recently. that is assad. that is an atrocity and the russians are enable that. when the russians came in, charlie, you remember this, the russians said that they were going to do what they ought to have done which is to promote -- facilitate a political transition in which assad is moved out, the structures of the syrian state, not the regime but some basics of governance remain and the syrian opposition becomes part of the government and restores this country to the decency that its people deserve. they didn't do that. instead they fueled the civil war. >> so what can can we do? >> for one thing right now is i think that additional sanctions on russia would that some on the hill are calling for is appropriate. the russians have responsibility for doing this. >> responsibility meaning they carried out the attack? >> no.
7:11 am
they've enabled. i don't have any reason to say that. it's clear the assad regime did. they didn't come in to end the civil war, they joined the civil war on the side of assad. >> but the trump administration says that the obama administration missed a great opportunity to solve the crisis in syria. what's your response when you hear that? >> i wasn't secretary of defense at that time, but we are where we are today and that's where i'm realistic about where i was at secretary of defense and i thought it was important that we keep the pressure on the russians to do what they're supposed to do e. meanwhile, in the rest of syria, don't forget we have american troops there today who are very successful doing what has to be done -- >> in syria? >> destroy isil and iraq because -- that's necessary because those -- that's not a civil war there intent upon
7:12 am
attacking americans and we need to protect ourselves and we need to destroy isil in iraq and syria and we need to destroy the state and idea that there can be an islamic state. that's important. we're doing that at the same time. in the civil war our approach has been to try to promote an end to the civil war and not to fuel the civil war. >> not to take out assad? >> again, the russian said they were going to do was move assad aside and the members of the regime -- >> hold on a minute. five days before this attack happened, president trump abandoned the goal of pressuring assad to leave power. that was a shift in u.s. policy. do you think that that sent a message that allowed assad to carry out that attack? >> i can't say that. this is assad's responsibility. i think it is important for us to have clarity about our policy
7:13 am
and consistents in the anunsation of our policy. >> we should talk about north korea. >> you know a lot about nuclear policy. do you believe the north koreans now have the capacity to deliver a nuclear weapon to america's coast? >> i'm certain they're trying to get that capability, charlie. >> how close are they? because some are saying they're this close? >> i believe that they are intent upon getting there and what we need to do about that and are doing about that, we've long anticipated that is we stay one step ahead of them. that's charlie why we improved our missile defenses of our own territory, in both their number and quality. that's why we're deploying the so-called cad system in north korea, that's why we have 28,000 troops on the korean peninsula. i'd like to see the chinese, especially, turn the north koreans around for reasons i can
7:14 am
explain. i'm not optimistic about that but we've tried for 20 years. it's worth continuing to try but in the meantime we have to deter and defend ourselves. we stand strong in the korean peninsula. there's troops there right now as we sit here right now, it's evening there, they're motto is fight tonight and of course nobody wants a war there. >> but it means they're ready. >> they are ready. if war came to the korean peninsula, first of all i'm confident that we would win. we would destroy north korea's military and destroy their rejiem but it is an intensity of violence that the world has not scene since the last korean war. it's a very congested area, many, many civilians would be killed in the process in this process so it's not something you can deal with lightly but we are ready. >> president trump has a big meeting of course today, tomorrow, this weekend with president xi jinping of china.
7:15 am
the last missile test that the north koreans launch, we saw the secretary of state issue a statement that the u.s. has spoken enough about north korea. we have no further comments. has the u.s. spoken enough about north korea. did you find that statement unusual? >> i think what's important is what we -- is to act and i mean that we've long been clear in opposing north korean nuclear missile but also their general aggression and provocative posture on the korean peninsula. i think that much is clear. what isn't clear to me is whether the chinese will ever do exercise what they uniquely have, which is carrots and sticks that could influence the be-havre of kim jong-un. >> why do they not do that? >> i think there are two reasons, charlie. both of which -- they fear the near term more than the far
7:16 am
term. a lot of us are like that. and it's a natural tendency but they know this is trouble in the long run and select a frog boiling in the pot, they haven't jumped and the reason they haven't jumped to your question is two fold. one is they don't want to see a collapse of north korea and they don't want to see a war on the korean peninsula because they know that would result in a unified korea quite likely -- >> we're out of time but remember the president of the united states, donald trump said if the chinese are not prepared to go with us, we're prepared to go alone. >> i believe today will be -- he said he was going to be dealing with the chinese on that as well as very important economic -- >> tlad trade and other issues. >> thank you. >> good to see you. >> likewise. >> the president has reversed one of his more controversial moves. his strategist steve bannon was
7:17 am
removed in a reorganization announced yesterday. bannon denied reports he threatened to quit if he was taken off the committee. the new national security adviser mcmaster led the changes. and now that flynn is going, there's no need for bannon to stay. >> more than 20 million merngz are in the path of a severe weather warning this morning. tornadoes were reported from georgia to indiana yesterday. the strong wind level buildings flooded the road there. severe weather is a threat today from south carolina to new jersey. in the northeast flood watches and warnings are in effect. reported twister tore through several buildings. mark good morning. >> reporter: when the manager of this fertilizer store heard the bad weather was heading this way. it was the right call to send him employees home. 90 minutes later the storm was here and this is what the business looked like.
