said yes to mr. trunk I regret all the help and support
I gave him along the way I am ashamed of my own failings February the 27th 2019
Michael Cohen Donald Trump’s lawyer and trusted sidekick for the last decade
appeared before the US Congress his statement was a bombshell against the
president’s Kevin accused Trump of cooperating with Russia during the
election campaign as well as several tax crimes he also described to Donald Trump
as a racist a con man and a cheat I am ashamed because I know what mr. Trump is
he is a racist he is a con man and he is achieved you know a little impressed by
that frankly could have he could have gone all out he only went about 95
percent instead of a hundred percent so Devo ah Michael Kern was talking
about Donald Trump the president of the United States himself was thousands of
kilometers away from Washington on a trip in her Nonie the Vietnamese capital
to meet with the North Korean leader Kim jong-un in what was the second summit
between the two leaders but I think having a fake hearing like that and
having it in the middle of this very important summit is really a terrible
thing this is a summit that has been dismissed by most of the media as a
failure and this leaves us with a big question well was the Hanoi summit
really a failure where exactly did the negotiations between the United States
and North Korea ends up well let’s take a look alright so there are some exceptions but
generally sequels never as exciting as the original right control well it looks
like something similar happens in Hanoi just eight months after the historic
first meeting in Singapore donald trump and kim jeong-hoon they saw each other
again expectations at this time a concrete agreement would be reached with
deadlines goals and objectives however antonyms happen the summit ended hastily
without any specific understanding on the one hand North Korea demanded that
all international sanctions be eliminated in exchange for dismantling
its main nuclear complex not the only one it has the young beyond complex safe
center dedicated to the production of plutonium and uranium fuel for North
Korea’s nuclear weapons on the one hands the United States demanded that North
Korea take the first step dismantling all of its nuclear programs production
and development centers including all the clandestine centers after this they
would contemplate lifting the international sanctions as you can see their positions weren’t
entirely compatible North Korea didn’t want to give up its nuclear program in
the United States wasn’t willing to make concessions at all the dilemma that we
were confronted with is the North Koreans at this point are unwilling to
impose a complete freeze on their weapons of mass destruction programs so
to give many many billions of dollars in sanctions relief would in effect put us
in a position of subsidizing the ongoing development of weapons of mass
destruction in North Korea a State Department officials speaking to The
Washington Post but don’t think this came as a surprise it’s true Donald
Trump did seem very upbeat thinking that in exchange for guaranteeing a splendid
future for North Korea with investments and economic developments it managed to
convince Kim jong-un to change his ways I’ll check this out our United States
team has arrived in North Korea to make arrangements for the summit between Kim
jong-un and myself I truly believe North Korea as brilliant potential it’ll be a
great economic and financial nation one day Kim jong-un agrees with me on this
it will happen Donald Trump but the truth is that his team was much less
optimistic North Korea will seek to retain its WMD capabilities and is
unlikely to completely give up its nuclear weapons and production
capabilities because its leaders ultimately view nuclear weapons as
critical to regime survival both Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and
national security adviser john bolton have expressed their doubts about being
able to reach an agreement the fact is that this is what every
media source has been told and is the reason why the summit was considered a
true failure but hold on a second because the question we want to answer
is well was it really a failure well yeah it kind of was but also know if you’e let’s be upfront about this on
visual politic we don’t exactly sympathize with Donald Trump but we
always want to be objective which is not the same as being neutral so we believe
that we can give you three reasons why the summit’s unlike what most of the
media have said wasn’t an absolute failure so listen up objective Vietnam
although it often goes unnoticed with more than 90 million inhabitants Vietnam
has not only become one of the fastest growing economies in the world in the
last three decades but it’s also become increasingly important to the United
States yes it may be surprising but these two countries that less than half
a century ago worth protagonists of one of the longest and harshest wars in
history and out to significant economic and political partners you’re more proof of this tight
relationship in March of 2018 the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson set
sail for four days in Danang it was the first visit to Vietnam by a US military
ship since the end of the war in 1975 the point is that Donald Trump’s visit
it didn’t have only one goal but rather to allow me to explain the White House
took advantage of this trip to strengthen its ties with the Vietnamese
government Trump met both the presidents and the Prime Minister and presided over
a symbolic act in which several Vietnamese airlines commissioned more
than twenty billion dollars to purchase aircraft and services from American
companies in particular Boeing in addition they mapped out free trade
agreements and the sale of billions of dollars of military equipments that’s
because the United States wants to turn Vietnam into one of its most important
partners in this area of the world both politically and economically why well
because Vietnam is growing by leaps and bounds
further it’s very open to trade it’s got unfriendly relations with China and its
workforce has very low labor costs in other words it’s a perfect country to
flood with dollars although I’m not sure how chumps are going to cope with the
fact that the United States has a trade deficit with Vietnam of almost forty
billion dollars for its part Vietnam aims to receive all of those dollars to
accelerate its developments its autonomy from China and its leadership in
Southeast Asia I know a is desperate for a better
relationship with Washington and would like to free-trade agreement with the
Trump administration to ensure it is not entirely dependent on Chinese markets
and consumers Vietnam also would love to purchase large amounts of advanced US
military equipment Harry Jake as Yanis director of Korean studies at the center
for the national interest well what better way than giving Vietnam the
prominence and political influence of hosting a summit of this type and if
they also use its strength and Thai as well that’s even better
wouldn’t you agree well that’s precisely what happens cards on the table
in a visual politic video about the Singapore summit we explained how North
Korea’s concepts of what denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula means and how it’s
very different from what the rest of the world understands North Korea has no intention of giving
up its nuclear weapons at least not in such a straightforward way it’ll
probably come as no surprise when I say that the North Korean regime is a cruel
dictatorship with an absolutely abominable track record when it comes to
human rights isolated from the rest of the world and ruled with an iron fist by
three generations of the family of the current leader Kim Jong oh we’re talking
about a country where citizens can be sent to prison for simply watching
reading or listening to international media it’s a country where any dissent
or disagreement about the government’s can lead to brutal re-education and
forced labor camps it’s a country with a state that exploits its own people by
making them work in semi slavery conditions while despite all of this
Donald Trump’s desire to push through his precious agreements along with his
predilection for dictators and authoritarian positions glossed over the
true nature of the policies of Pyongyang everyone’s looking out for their own
interests no one’s looking out for the interests of North Korea’s citizens Brad
Adams Asia director of Human Rights Watch be very surprised very smart very
good negotiator really he’s got a great personality he’s a you know funny guy
he’s a very smart guys a great negotiator
he loves his people not that I’m surprised by that but he loves his
people don’t let anyone think anything different he speaks and his people sit
up at attention I want my people to do the same while thanks to this failed summers the
cards have remained on the table Kim Jong Un’s regime has no intention of
giving up its power or its nuclear weapons and let’s make this clear
forcing North Korea to acknowledge the stance publicly actually strengthens the
United States for any future negotiations now any expectations for
subsequent agreements have drops and that was needed actually it was a very
productive two days but sometimes you have to walk washington has gained the
upper hand in the negotiations which they will continue to flex because they
know North Korea desperately needs to overcome its sanctions now this all
leads us to our third point the reforms everything depends on the
reforms folks just thirty years ago Vietnam was in an even worse situation
than North Korea the country was shattered by Wars and suffering from a
blockade from China the United States Europe and even its Southeast Asian
neighbors his economy it was literally sunk leaving about 70
percent of its inhabitants to live in extreme poverty since then things
they’ve changed a lot today only around 3 percent of Viet
Nam’s population lives in extreme poverty
that’s an SIV reduction 70 percent to 3 percent well the fact is that Vietnam
unilaterally implemented its own reform plan known as the DOE Moy they started
doing this even before they reconciled with the international community that is
they were doing this while they were suffering a blockade from the United
States and what could be a better example for North Korea
what better action to involve Vietnam in this process and set it up as an example
it’s a great way to let Pyongyang know what they could achieve the success of
the Vietnamese economy is due to its decision to normalize relations with the
United States in 1995 I would say to our North Korean friends as long as they
have a conflict with the United States they will not be able to develop their
economy properly Major General Wynn LaVon and Cuong
former director of the Institute of Strategic Studies at the Vietnamese
Ministry of Public Security we told you in several videos which will link to in
the description that Kim Jong young seems determined to promote economic
reforms and open North Korea what better way to persuade him than by showing him
the results firsthand no revolutionary tasks stand before us other than the
improvement of the economy and people’s daily lives Kim Jong un folks the United
States it seems to know that the North Korean problem will only be solved with
a new strategy that focuses more on trade than on weapons maybe the summit
didn’t have the expected results but does that mean it was a failure the
answer is not so clear at first glance especially if we consider the White
House’s new strategy we are not going to invade North Korea we are not seeking to
topple the North Korean regime we are ready for a different future it’s bigger
than denuclearization I’m absolutely convinced and more importantly the
president of the United States is convinced that it’s time to move past 70
years of war and hostility on the Korean Peninsula there is no reason for this
conflict to persist any longer Stephen our vegan the US Special Representative
for North Korea so what do you think do you support the Trump administration’s
strategy towards North Korea well leave your answer in the comments below as

personality he’s a you know funny guy he’s a very smart guy he’s a great
negotiator he loves those people not that I’m surprised by that but he loves
his people and don’t let anyone think anything different he speaks and his
people sit up at attention I want my people to do the same

  2. I will despise him and forever be ashamed and embarrassed that he was able to steal the election through the Electoral College just for the way he acted during his juvenile campaign of bullying insults lacking any substance. A person is what they are when they are at their worst but agolf twitler seems to continuously be setting new lows. agolf twitler's entire election is racist Amurdikkka's reaction to a black American having served with great dignity as our President. If you did not vote for Clinton it tells me a lot about you. I am not one of his brain dead base of deplorables.

    Would Agolf Twitler have been able to steal the election had he released his tax returns?

    Agolf Twitler is a traitorous lying hypocrite for not being patriotic and releasing his tax returns and prove to the American citizenry that he is working for us and not Putin. Remember this; Agolf Twitler does not even trust his base of ignorant, racist, KKKonservative rethugliKKKlans enough to release his tax returns. This was a huge red flag to the majority of Americans that voted. ‘I don’t even want to get into the well-documented fact that race, more than Roe vs. Wade created the current iteration of white evangelical politics.'

  3. I'm really curious to understand your research process for these videos. I would wish one day you would make a video or post describing it. Love your content 😀

  4. Hi! Your videos are really good. I was wondering if you could cover a potential Unified Ireland, because
    1- There is a clause in the good Friday agreement that allows the people of Northern Ireland to vote for a unified Ireland.
    2-There was a majority remain in Northern Ireland during the brexit votes.
    3- Irish reunification has always been an issue, and was one of the causes of the civil war, when the government was divided on why it only got 26 of 32 counties.
    4- Nobody on either side of the Irish border wants a hard border, and the DUP can’t agree to anything because they just don’t want to.
    5- A hard brexit impacts Ireland the most.

    This would be an interesting topic to cover. I also have a few questions about it too.

    1- How will Ireland pay of N.I’s debt?
    2- Does Ireland have enough money to pay off the debt?
    3-Will the UK try to hold on to N.I? Or will they let it go.
    4-If the UK let NI leave, could Scotland also attempt to leave?
    5- What will happen in the aftermath?
    6- Would Sinn Fein come to power? They may be the smallest out of F.G FF and themselves, but if there is an Ireland reunification, then they would be the biggest party in Ireland, and hold majority power for the first time in Irish history

    Thank you

  5. If you’re trying to win over the NK Dictator, wouldn’t you be flattering him in front of world media? Or would you rather that Donald Trump says, Eh.. the dictator from NK? He sucks, he’s got concentration camps, exploits his own people. F**k him, he’s a nobody. Lol, I doubt that would make Kim want to continue discussions.

  6. I think a majority of Americans and the World agree (Despite the obvious 'TRUMP card' pun intended) Talking to Kim Jong Un (despite how oppressive he is to his people and how little is actually moving forward) It's changing the political position between United States and North Korea. Kim Jong Un of North Korea just has to understand America is far over with the Korean Conflict. Vietnam showed America has been willing to move on from the Vietnam war and do better. USA is more than capable to move on from war. We showed it so many times. Yeah we still have conflicts, but the public has spoken. Kim just has to see the writing and the obvious. And it's better for the people.

  7. It's refreshing to see a bit of positive reporting on Kim and Trump. I'm not a big fan of either of them but I'll admit that I'm also pleasantly surprised that they have actually exceeded my expectations so far.

  8. why was the Cohen part in the first two minutes added? was pretty irrelevant to video's title or content

  9. Trump has a strategy ??? Don't be ridiculous !!! This child shoots from the seat of his pants and takes pride of doing so. It's hilarious !!! May the love and the peace of Jesus be with us.

  10. North Korea is not that demonic country that the media used to portray them. North Korea is like Vietnam – suffered from american war, but unlike Vietnam koreans were left separated… Peace is the problem solver not war rhetoric!

  11. A lot of Americans conception of our relationship with Vietnam is off base all they can see is the war in reality look at our relationship with Britain for a better summation sure we fought a catastrophic war with them but similar long-term goals and fellow feeling as well a beneficial economic relationship can really change things

  12. This nut says the USA was not willing to make concession at all. You only make concessions when you’ve gotten something from the other side. Being Brit you don’t get this I guess ohh wait you can’t even get concessions and make deals in your own parliament so I guess international negotiation would escape you. Really though stop and thing since the talks there are still no missile test. North an South Korea are talking people have gotten to see families cross boarders. North Korea and the usa have not sat down and talked in a high level talk ever? It’s not surprising there is no agreement still things have cooled way down in that area talks are still going on . A win for no one but a win for the people with the cross hairs pointing at them. Even England didn’t listen to the usa when we first talked about splitting. Right now seems like things are better but not perfect

  13. Thanks Simon for an objective opinion, I don't like Trump at all. But even a stopped or broken watch is right twice a day…

  14. Hi Simon,

    A very insightful video as usual. I request you take a stab at the recent Indo-Pak standoff, considering the world was at the verge of a Nuclear war just a month ago.

  15. Even a idiot like Trump gets lucky sometimes. So yes, talking to the N Koreans and offering a normalising of relations is a good idea. We know of course it's just global grandstanding by Trump but a good idea is still a good idea, even if it's accidental.

  16. I feel that this whole thing is a ruse by the North.The North knows that there nukies are the only thing preventing us from turning there country into another Wal-Mart so why would they even consider dismantling them??

  17. The Hanoi summit was not a failure as it sent the message that we will not rollover like all the previous administrations when threaten. It was a test by Kim Yung Fatboy of President Trump and President Trump played it brilliantly. President Trump is a damn genius and he makes the opposition look like Morons. President Trump plays 4-D Chess while his opponents are playing Checkers or with themselves. What do you expect as most of his opposition are failed lawyers that have been able to con their constituents to continue to vote them into office.

    After another four years of President Trump, I wonder how much of the Democrat Party will be left. Would it not be something if after President Trump leaves office in 2024 his son Donald Trump Jr. runs for the Presidency and gets elected. That would be another eight years of the Trump dynasty. It could happen if the economy is still strong and more foreign affairs victories have happened. Would love to see the reactions from the Leftist Collective.

  18. The problem is trump knows alot more then they think he knows. When trump tells him what he knows then kim is supprised and gets pissy,trump is not stupid and understands how kim works.

  19. Its always amusing when the left pretends to not understand why Trump butters up people he has to deal with, as if virtue signalling would help such a situation.
    But we've seen their false authority and credentials exposed in the last week. CIA Brennan was bluffing no different than Tom Arnold with the russia conspiracy, doesn't matter how far up you go, the critics weren't coming from a rational place, not just irrational, frankly dangerously demented by any standard.

  20. Thank you for being Neutral and Objective about this event and the wider context. It seems to be a lot of media about Trump is misleading and paints him as a Comic Villain. More and more I’m starting to guess my opinion on Trump isn’t accurate or close to what reality is. Does anyone feel similarly?

  21. It's all about money and power. So If both can keep their power and make money in the process, they'll even spend a night together , make a tape or two and it'll be a happy
    end.

  22. After the Hanoi summit,a few foreign media reported that Kim Jung un wanted a partial lifting of sanctions in exchange for destruction of a NK testing facility.But,Trump wanted complete verifiable denuclearisation.In addition,Bolton threw in chemical and biological weapons at the last minute.
    It was the first Kim knew of these weapons and subsequently terminated talks.
    Reuters is now reporting essentially the same thing-trump wanted Kim to hand over all NK's nukes.

  23. I think Simon was spot on ! Everyone knew that Kim was not going to give up nukes and Trump was not going to lift sanctions. So I think they met to show the world each others stance and get it officially on record.

  24. Very bias.
    European and Americans are always good.
    Asians are bad.
    Unsubscribe pls. Useless craps.

  25. Gotta take everything Cohen said with a grain of salt. Guy was convicted for perjury here in the states before he testify to congress about trump. The guy is a liar. And has been found guilty by our judiciary system.

  26. I like the channel but your efforts at virtue signalling by emphasizing your dislike of the president I voted for and will again, is becoming tiresome.

  27. their population eats grass and their country still uses windows 3.11 or windows 95 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! making ppl believe north korea ever has been a threat is the biggest lie of our generation

  28. YOU CAN TAKE NORTH KOREA DOWN WITH A LITTLE SAILING BOAT AND A IPHONE , BRAINS PPL TURN THEM ON JUST SOMETIMES

  29. THIS CHANNEL AND THIS WHOLE YOUTUBE THING UR DOING ON UR PS4 OR PS3 OR SMELLY PC , IS 1 THING AND 1 THING ONLY PPL NEED TO WAKE UP TO THAT FACT THEY WANNA MILK THE WORLD DRY OF THE LAST BIT OF OIL AND GAS THEIR IS BEFORE THEY MAKE THE REVOLUTION TO WIND , SUN AND ELECTRICITY AND THEY GONNA USE EVERY PUPPET SHOW EVERY LIE EVER TRICK IN THE BOOK EVERY RELIGIOUS SCAM TO KEEP THE WORLD ITS PPL SMALL AS LONG YOU ARE WATCHING YOUTUBE GARBAGE AND BUSTING UR NUTS OF SMALL POTATOS THEIR EATING THE BIG PIE AND IT DOESNT MATTER IF UR BLACK BROWN YELLOW WHITE OR WHATEVER RELIGIOUS NONENSE U FOLLOW THEY WANT U TO EAT ROTTEN POTATOS AND THEY WANNA EAT PIE , EVERY LEADER IN THE WORLD WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN INCLUDING KEEPING U IN UR LITTLE SMALL BOX BELIEVING GARBAGE LIKE THIS AND YES SAME GOES FOR MYSELF

  30. Since what we've tried in the past has only increased hostility and suspicion towards the USA, even from our allies, a new approach is probably worth pursuing. We are not going to recreate the world in our image despite our stubborn efforts to do so. We need to show a little humility and learn from past mistakes. We need to acknowledge the differences between the East and West, and from one country to another, adjusting our foreign policy accordingly. Politics is the oldest strategy game in the world, and has the highest stakes. Despite, or because lives are literally on the line adaptable strategy is essential. Our predictable unwillingness to adapt our strategies so we can feel morally superior is exactly what is being use to undermine our best efforts by making us appear as tyrannical and intolerant and aggressive as those we accuse. At this point we're lucky to get whatever small wins that we can and start making friends again instead of more enemies. Perhaps Trumps unpredictability is an asset when dealing with the Putins, Kims and Jinpings of today's world. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

  31. hahahahahaha………Have you forgotten that China can still ally with NK? Not to mention Putin……..USA gain upper hand……..hahahahahaha? Holy Moly

    The same presenter who says Australia has no crisis…….hahahaha……OK, this presenter is far more saner than Chris Chappel of that fucking American uncovered

    Seriously I am looking at these………I find it inspiring…….hahahaha

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwQkQxvWilk

    Australia got no crisis……hahahaha

  32. Trump’s presidency is lot more successful than his public image. It’s better to come out of a negotiation without a deal, than with a bad one.

  33. Found your podcast, good stuff, makes me feel as though I am studying for Jeopardy with a friend! Keep going!

  34. The problem with this Youtube channel is the Music. I ask why do you have music as a distraction in your videos.

  35. As a British afghan I know first hand that having issues with the United States will be the biggest problem for any countries development economically and politically so it is better for north Korea to accept United States offer n get rid of there nuclear weapons . What is the point of having a nuclear weapon while your people suffering and you know your country gone have a better future and better life without it. It will be guaranteed by international community. .. north Korean regime knows there nuclear weapon is not going to do any damage to the main land US.. maybe it hit south Korea and kill his long last brothers n sister . But the is not what a good leader will do so north Korea is better off giving up on this ….

  36. the location is significant Vietnam should be held as an example for north korea if Vietnamese relations with America was normalized north korea can do the same the return unification and economic development

  37. 4:40 Visual Politik ok, we know that Donald Trump is not your dream president of USA, but satirize someone's voice in moments like that is much below your normal standards.

  38. 7:00 usa navy is supporting vietnamese claims in the south china sea. usa oil companies have deal with vietnam to exploit the oil in the contested area. 14:00 trump has no strategy except a good tv show. usa wants nk to get rid of its nukes. nk will not. the more countries the usa places sanctions on the more likely world will dump the dollar.

  39. Don't mock peoples voices. You know how disrespectful that is. Come on. I like a lot of your guys videos but you guys are also really really biased
    Not objectived

  40. If you want people to comment on your video just change your shirt and do a bad Donald Trump voice.

  41. I’m korean (south) american, and I support trump administration’s strategy on north korean relations. In fact I think trump does way better job than the South Korean government

  42. That guy who reads Trump's tweet sounds like a condescending twat. Not that I love Trump, but this is beyond pathetic. Have some standards. BTW, in case you haven't notice, there is a formula. Go woke, get broke. You are on that path. Do you wanna get broke?

  43. I dont understand why this channel always shills Trump, arent you objective? Very sad and dishonest imo! Give the man some credit especially after all the falls accusation of leftist channels like this!

  44. Kim has been to china many times, he doesn’t need to go to vietnam to see how to reform. This goal of creating anti chinese ring is unrealistic.

  45. North Korea will not reform. At least not before they come up with enough excuses to explain to its people why the South is so rich, how why the people should not throw away Kim, which to me is impossible to achieve. Although they struggle economically under sanction, but with the support of China, Kim will live happily as it is

  46. As a Korean citizen I must say Simon sees it right. We have been living in almost two years without annoyance of major North Korean military provocation (ye….they fired some missiles recently and that's why I use the word MAJOR) and growing real hope of real reconciliation with our northern brothers. The historic lessons of Vietnam is well recieved by Korean public, especialy by the well educated young ones. We think economic incetive for both regime in Korean peninsula surely lead to a surprising deal in not a far future. Even the so called failure of Hanoi summit didn't affect much, general public here just having been more patient for this long term historic game's end.
    For your reference I am a security guard of one of US army's northern most garrisons in Korea and no one here expresses the genuine fear of war like two years ago. Current rotational brigade soldiers (3rd brigade of 1st armored division from Elpaso) just complaining boredom and lack of recreational activities!!

  47. well it's a plan time will tell everyone else has been blown off by the Korean regime and they have always reneged after they get what they want so they can't be trusted they have to prove to us their going to keep their end whatever deal they agree too!

  48. So, the fact that the cards are on the table means something? No. It doesn't. That's because it was known what those cards were for quite some time before Trump's presidency. Your second reason means nothing. Also, did you know that North Korea HAD TO REPORT to the US about its nuclear program in the past? Now Trump gave up that obligation North Korea had. North Korea has the upper hand. The US didn't gain any advantage. North Korea did. North Korea said they're not going to give up nuclear weapons and the US said "fine, you don't have to report to us about your nuclear program either". What kind of victory is that? Expectations for any future negotiations weren't that high since the US was constantly destabilising other countries for years if not decades. The US doesn't have any leverage over North Korea in future negotiations.

    About your 3rd point, those reforms will not lead to a denuclearisation of North Korea.

  49. Vietnam will again become the battleground for the battle between the US and China. Vietnamese people hate China but the Government loves China for obvious reasons.

  50. Hey Cohen now that you’re a convicted felon in prison sure your ashamed. Otherwise you would be living high on the hog proud of your position.

  51. So he’s got a positive attitude… better then being negative… Trump is a worldly man… with worldly ways and strategies… not the second coming…

  52. Yes, good strategy I think, especially considering that Trymps opposition planned to use north Korean weapons to further their own political brand of terrorism
    Trumo successfully extinguished thier sully threats
    Surly this is more of a progess in the right direction

  53. usually the "other voice" enerves me and bothers me, but ok, it is a mater of taste. But on 4:54 he is just plain disrespectfull. I am not for or against Trump, as I live on the other continent and have my own politicians to worry about, but mimnicing someone's voice in that way while quoting him/her – unacceptable for "unbias" reporter. So if you want me and hundreds of thousands of other smart people watching you to take you seriously – think about these things, @Visualpolitik EN

  54. the trade deficit isnt a problem. Let them earn as long as they are US allies.
    The problem w China is, they got too big headed and that the trade deficit was due to their own strength hahaha it wasnt.
    And now, that punch bowl is being taken away and re distributed to others.
