6:17 pm
president has the evidence he needs to confront putin if heto chooseo so, but history -- the history, it's interest, you know, when edward snowden got offered asylum in russia after the dustup of allhe stolen material, intelligence material, withinays president obama cancelled a planned summit with putin as sort of aetaliation for that decision to provide sylum for that, so there' precedent to basically using a summit as a way to palize, you know, pulling, but, remember, president trump wanted the summit. asn't putin asking, this is trump's sdg. people wanted to send his national security ade.ser over th the president wants to do this, but i think this puts enormous pressure on him. politilly the safer thing to do would be to cancel the summit, to show plic outrage and to sort of push back on the suspicion that p someple have that somehow he's in cahoots. if you want to push back on that suspion, best thing to do, cancel the summit. >> but he's not doing the
6:18 pm
politically safe thing. >> no, that's right. >> and hs been antagonistic about this investigation and he wants to go meet with him so can ask putin about this. >> the most amazing thing about the indictments this morning y,that robosenstein pointed out, by the i briefed the president earlier this week. >> before he left town. >> so the president had this information when he was asked multiple times during the week bolt nato and the uk trip about putin and he referred to it as a witch-hunt and hoax. this is -- 12 russian intelligence officers werect in today for essentially evading the american democracy. the first reaction w yould think would be outrage. hard stop, period. it is sort of one of those things that the initial white hoe statement was noting what wasn't said in the indictment. y with here what is nob the campaign. >> no americans. >> and you're sitting there going shouldn't the first reaction officially be this is outrageous that -- that a oreign -- that
6:19 pm
nationals interfered in our democracy. that should be the first hard st , let the campaign put out the spin about the campaign. >> well, the word outrageous has been attached to our president a lot this week as he was on nato, people are calling wrecking ball tour and the comments he made about theresa may, and so, you know, what if it was that strategy about and what is he leaving -- what kind of debris field is h leaving as he moves on to scotland? >> look, i think the biggest debacle is what happened in the uk with the president essentially doing this interview and knives theresa may -- i think the most logical idea here is that he just -- he thought him sa no trade deal would be enough to sort of push her out, that there would be a vote of no confidence and he would get an ally in bores johnson as prime ministee i think found out literally nernight, oh, no, no, no, while theresa may may not be
6:20 pm
that popular in her governmen e noboe wants to be in charge of brexit right now. it is the duty that nobody wants. >> right. >> and i think suddenly the reason he had to make nice today wasn't for diplomatic reasons. he may have unintentionally strengthened her hand polically by pubically chastising her and looking like he pulled the rug out and somehow declaring boris johnson his preferred prime minister. the worst thing that could have happen bores johnson. you saw the protests in london today. >> 100,000. >> no american president has gotten crowds like that. >> does he actually care about the relationship? >> i think he's looking for allies. i think he cares, but i do tatnk e sees this as transactional. he thinks that -- by t way, look, european politics is going through the same thing thatic am politics is, there's a migration and immigration in culture, the code word of, you lly changing ultu
6:21 pm
is leading to like-mind politicians getting elected in austria and like-mined politicians in italy and hungary and maybe he thought he could get like-minded politician in the i think what he's looking for is re western leaders that actually share his transaxa world view, more bilateral most of these current european leaders, the multi-lateral and the belieors in n and the believers in sort of democratic and americanp leaders in the world. e> it's a nato meeting like n other. >> yes. >> he made nato interesting again. >> yeah. >> i mean, you know, i was really excited the other day and got to spe all the time in nato and talking to former national security adviser stevea ey, had a whole half hour on nato. >> wow.
