WELCOME BACK. AS PRESIDENT TRUMP TOURED STORM RAVAGED AREAS, LET’S BRING IN POLITICAL ANALYST SUSAN McGRATH. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE YOU GUYS. LET’S START WITH NORTH KOREA THIS MORNING. IT IS ON A LOT OF PEOPLE’S MINES. ANOTHER MITCHELL LAUNCH ON FRIDAY — MISSILE LAUNCH ON FRIDAY AND THE PRESIDENT IS CONTINUING TO TALK ABOUT MILITARY OPTIONS. WHERE IS THIS CRISIS HEADED? WE ARE IN A BIT OF A BOX. THE UNITED STATES HAS VERY FEW OPTIONS. THE BEST THING WE COULD PROBABLY DO IS INCREASE OUR SANCTIONS BECAUSE WE DON’T WANT TO GET INTO NUCLEAR WAR. IT’S A DIFFICULT SITUATION. Reporter: DO YOU THINK THERE IS A POSSIBILITY OF A NUCLEAR WAR? WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WE ARE DEALING WITH WITH KIM JONG-UN. THE MILITARY IS RESPONDING WITH NEW TECHNOLOGY. WE HAVE NEW DEFENSE TECHNOLOGY WE ARE USING SUCH AS X-RAYS AND MICRO TECHNOLOGY TO HOPEFULLY BLOW UP A NUCLEAR MISSILE THAT WOULD COME AT US. THE MILITARY OPTION HAS TO BE EXPLORED AND THE MILITARY IS GETTING READY FOR IT BECAUSE YOU CAN’T HAVE DICTATOR MAKING THREATS THE WAY HE IS. I THINK BOMBAST MEETS BOMBAST WITH THE PRESIDENT OF NORTH KOREA AND DONALD TRUMP WHO LIKES A REDDER — USE RHETORIC A LOT. THEY SAID THEY WOULD NOT DEFEND NORTH KOREA IF ATTACKED. Reporter: WHY IS IN CHINA DOING SOMETHING MORE? THEY HAVE AGREED TO THE SANCTIONS AND 80% OF THE PETROLEUM AND ENERGY FOR NORTH KOREA COMES FROM CHINA AND THEY HAVE AGREED TO SANCTIONS. THEY ARE AND THEY ARE JUST DOING IT IN A GRADUATED SINCE. THEY DON’T WANT NORTH KOREA WIPED OFF THE MAP BECAUSE I MEAN SOUTH KOREA WOULD BE A UNIFIED COUNTRY ON THEIR BORDER. I THINK IT IS IN CHINA’S BEST INTEREST AND HOPEFULLY THE PRESIDENT WILL TONE DOWN THE RHETORIC. Reporter: THERE ARE ISSUES LIKE THE DEBT CEILING AND DACA . IS THIS JUST STRATEGIC OR UNPREDICTABILITY? I DON’T KNOW THAT DONALD TRUMP HAS A STRATEGY OUTLINED. I THINK IT IS MORE UNPREDICTABILITY. FOR DEMOCRATS IT IS GOOD FOR US BECAUSE WHAT IS HAPPENING IS IT IS DIVIDING REPUBLICANS AND THAT WILL BE GOOD FOR POLICY AND ALSO GOOD FOR THE 2018 ELECTIONS. Reporter: IS A DIVIDING REPUBLICANS? WHEN A DEBT CEILING PROPOSED BY THE DEMOCRATS AND THEN WITHIN THE HOUR THE PRESIDENT ACCEPTS IT. BUT THE BOW FOR DONALD TRUMP IS HAPPY TO SEE THIS BECAUSE THEY ARE HAPPY FOR THE GRIDLOCK. THE PRESIDENT MADE A DEAL. Reporter: IF THE PRESIDENT IS NEGOTIATING DIRECTLY? IF WE ARE TO MOVE THE COUNTRY ALONG, AND I THINK THE PRESIDENT HAS SAID THIS. WE DO HAVE TO SEEK SOME KIND OF UNITY BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND THAT’S WHAT HE IS DOING WHETHER THE REPUBLICANS LIKE IT OR NOT. THE REPUBLIC THAT’S THE PRESIDENT AS A REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT AND THEIR PRESIDENT. I THINK THAT TRUMP RAN AS A DEALMAKER. WHEN HE COULDN’T DEAL WITH THE REPUBLICANS, HE WENT TO THE NEXT BEST OPTION WHICH IS THE DEMOCRATS. CHUCK SCHUMER AND NANCY PELOSI HAVE BECOME PARTNERS ON THE DEBT CEILING AND THEY HAVE PARTNERED ON IRMA AND THEY ARE PARTNERING ON DACA AND BORDER SECURITY. THERE IS NO REASON WHY THEY CAN’T CONTINUE . CHUCK SCHUMER SAID, HE LIKES ME. REMEMBER DONALD TRUMP IS NOT A TRADITIONAL REPUBLICAN. HE IS PROBABLY A NEW YORK DEMOCRAT. HIS PERSONALITY IS CLOSER TO CHUCK SCHUMER THEN TO PAUL RYAN ANY DAY IN THE WEEK. Reporter: A NEW YORK DEMOCRAT? THAT’S INTERESTING. THE PRESIDENT RESPONDED TO WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN CHARLOTTESVILLE GOING BACK TO HIS THEORY THAT BOTH SIDES WERE TO BLAME AND HE STATED THAT MORE PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT HE IS RIGHT. SO THE QUESTION IS, WHY CAN’T THE PRESIDENT LET THIS GO? I HAVE ONE MORE QUICK QUESTION, WHY CAN’T THE PRESIDENT LET IT GO? YOU CANNOT SEPARATE HIMSELF FROM HIS BASE. DURING HIS CAMPAIGN, HE CANNOT REFUTE THE ENDORSEMENT FROM DAVID DUKE. HE SAID, I DON’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT HIM. HE CAN SEPARATE HIMSELF. I THINK HE DOESN’T WANT TO BE WRONG. ONCE HE SAYS SOMETHING, HE WILL NEVER BACK AWAY FROM IT. Reporter: I’M GOING TO ASK SUSAN AND BARRY THIS, WHAT YOU THINK OF THE PRESIDENT AT THE YEAR-END FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS WEEK? — AT THE U.N. FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS WEEK? HE COULD HAVE THE MENTALITY THAT HE OFTEN HAS AND THROW A BONE TO NATIONAL GROUPS AROUND THE COUNTRY. I THINK THIS HAPPENS EVERY YEAR AND I THINK THE PRESIDENT CAN SHOW THAT WE ARE NOT UNILATERAL. Reporter: THANK YOU FOR
