Chris Wallace asks Pompeo about the NYT report on Rosenstein

‘Fox News Sunday’ anchor Chris Wallace asks Secretary of state Mike Pompeo on Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein allegedly recording of President Trump talk secretly.

In front of President Trump, the New York trip Sunday for an important meeting with other world leaders at the U. N. General Assembly, Secretary of state Mike Pompeo Fox News said in no uncertain terms that the US will “win” their ongoing trade dispute with China.

Pompeo, who formerly served as the trump card of the Director of the CIA, also warned that “we have a real danger for foreign agents, who will try to harm to America,” before the midterm elections, and took a hard line on Iran and North Korea during the wide-ranging interview with host Chris Wallace of “Fox News Sunday.”

“The trade war by China against the United States for years,” said Pompeo. “Here is what is different in this administration. If you would like to this is called a trade war, we are determined to win it.”

China withdrew the proposed free trade with the United States this week, as tensions between the two countries have increased. On Monday, the White house, a new tariff is announced to 200 billion dollars in Chinese imports and, in retaliation, China imposed its own taxes on $ 60 billion in U.S. goods. In response, Trump has said that additional tariffs on an additional $267 billion in imports.


“As far as you want to this is called a trade war, we are determined to win it.”

“We come to a result that is forcing China to behave in a way that, if you want it to be a power-a global power, transparency, the rule of law-said they have not the intellectual property stealing — the basic principles of trading around the world: fairness, reciprocity,” Pompeo. “These are the things that President Trump has said that his counterpart, he likes a lot. These are the things that the American people are demanding, and American workers deserve.”

Margins on Chinese theft of intellectual property was a rare issue of bipartisan consensus on Capitol Hill. In June, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-NY, praised trump said for the beat back in China, in an interview that “China is taking total advantage of the United States. They steal our intellectual property, cyber-theft.”

Talks on Iran and North Korea, which were expected to dominate the U. N. General Assembly. Last month, Trump the participation of the United States ended up in the Obama-era nuclear deal with Iran, rhyme posing brusing sanctions, the upended economy of the country and threatened the ruling government stability. Further sanctions on oil are set to go into force later this year and do even more damage.

Trump, who has long been called, the said to speak a “horrible” arrangement would be willing the leadership at the U. N., Pompeo with Iran, but he suggested that the conversation will not be very much.


“The President said he will talk with anyone, if we have a constructive conversation,” Pompeo said Wallace. We want Iran to stop the large-world’s largest state sponsor of terror, but make no mistake about it: there is no indication that they do not intend to do this. Just these last couple of weeks, you are come to the American interests within Iraq, in Basra and in Baghdad.”

The talks would come at a particularly tense time between the U.S. and Iran: Armed robbers with a military parade in the southwestern Iranian city of Ahvaz on Saturday, raided, killed at least 24 people-including eight members of the revolutionary guards — and wounding 53, state media said.

Iranian foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Pompeo counterpart, blamed the episode on a regional, country and their “US masters” apparently referring to Saudi Arabia and Israel.

“With reference to the attacks on night, I saw the comments from Zarif,” said Pompeo. “If you accuse a security-related incident at home, others, is a huge mistake. And the loss of innocent life is tragic and I wish Zarif would ensure the safety of his own people, rather than uncertainty around the world causes.”

Pompeo added: “we talk a lot” this week in New York on the progress made with North Korea.

“We have now reached, is the task of the missile test, the cessation of nuclear tests,” said Pompeo. “We now have the remains of 55 Americans. We are in deep discussions on the next steps in the denuclearization. President Moon [Jae-In] traveled to Pyongyang for the third time in this past week and made progress. We continue to make progress. All of these are the right steps forward. It is the right way.”

During the Moon’s visit to North Korea, the country’s dictator, Kim Jong-Un said reports of him that he wanted to said a second summit with President Trump, the Pompeo, the United States, “work.” Moon also spoke directly to the North Korean public are discussed and a peaceful future between the two countries.

Critics have charged, however, that the Trump management followed through on his promise to extract meaningful concessions from North Korea — including the elimination of the country nuclear Arsenal — since Trump is the historic first meeting with Kim in Signapore this summer.

“The administration, the position has not changed one iota from the time that we in this discussion,” Pompeo, she insisted. “I don’t want to be in the details of the negotiations that are underway. But we have talked about, special facilities, and in particular the weapons systems, these talks are in progress. And we are hopeful that we will deliver this result for the world.”

Pompeo also responded to a New York Times report that the Deputy attorney General Rod proposed by Rosenstein in the last year, secretly recording President Trump expose chaos in the White house and to bring members of the Cabinet invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office. Rosenstein has decided to denied the report, and a source in the room told Fox News that the remark was “sarcastic.”

“I’m not going to comment on that in any way, other than to say: I’ve pretty clear my since the beginning of the service here in this government, if they are not on the team, if you don’t have the support of this mission, then maybe you should find something else to do,” said Pompeo.

Talk to wear a wire to the President, Pompeo, flatly said, was “not even remotely,” the behavior of a team player.
