Did we know that he is an unstable man. Who has nuclear weapons atonement truck now the. Back to deal with an unstable man who has nuclear weapons what could possibly go wrong. But this is loved this is a country that is supported by China that is the only way that face that this dictatorship. States propped up. And so the way we're gonna get a solution here is that we got to deal with the Chinese Government and we've got to find a way. For the Chinese Government to deal with Korea so that we can. In that part of the world that really is our only chance in the area. And that's why it is. That this whole does these other lions and whims with China. Are really so disturbing. And so.

But what it also is about at its heart is about opportunity. So I'm a kid mind. Parents we struggled a lot. I my daddy ended up as a maintenance man my mom worked a minimum wage job at fears. I wanted to go to college in there was no money for college when I finally made it through its I graduated from a commuter college. That cost fifteen dollars a semester.
