Transcript for Trump administration takes on North Korea, DACA
For more on all the big stories of the morning let's bring in Matthew dowd. Matt, good morning. Let's start with the d.r.e.a.m.ers. Could ending this program be particularly perilous for the president. I think the president is in a really difficult situation right now. The country instead of looking for a commander in chief is looking for a chief of compassion and that program affects 00,000 people. He has kicked the can down the road and looks like he'll give it to congress. The president is in a difficult bind. He promises base one thing but I think he knows the country wants something else today. He seems to have been struggling with this quite publicly. Let's get back to North Korea. President trump has spoken with some seriously bellicose language talking about fire and fury. Has he possibly boxed himself in with these aggressive remarks? Well, I think not only he's boxed himself in but our country has boxed themselves in. This is a problem that's ongoing for the last 30 years and I think it's time that we finally come to the conclusion as, yes, he's going to have a nuclear weapon and how do we deal with that? We have to deal wit that through some sort of deterrents or containment. The president has to come to the conclusion that North Korea has a weapon. What do we do now in dealing with that. Matt dowd, we always appreciate your analysis. Thanks for joining us.
