What Is the President of China Thinking About Donald Trump?

The missile strike on Syria was not planned, but it just happened to coincide brilliantly with the president of China's visit to the US. What was the conversation like when the two leaders met for dinner? China's president must clearly realize that he's no longer dealing with Barack Obama.

Enjoy the complimentary clip or read the transcript for details.

GLENN: Yeah, the world can change overnight. Are you prepared? Because it's not just about Syria. This is also about North Korea.

Now, here's where it gets brilliant, and I'm not sure that this was planned by Donald Trump. You have to be a master strategist to have this all come together this way. A couple of things.

Notice we're leading not with the Democrats or the Republicans using the nuclear option. Gorsuch is going to be confirmed here in just a few minutes and nobody's talking about the nuclear option. That is one of the biggest stories, perhaps one of the biggest political stories of our lifetime because what it will mean for the Supreme Court for the next guy who gets out, which is probably going to be Kennedy. We're not talking about it. We're talking about a missile strike. Brilliant.

Two. Last night he was having dinner -- Trump was having dinner last night with the president of China. The president of China, the big topic last night and today is what are we going to do with North Korea?

Now, Donald Trump has said I'm going to unilaterally strike North Korea. That's crazy talk. Because North Korea will attack. They have eight nukes. They could launch a nuke. But even if they don't, they will attack South Korea, and they can level Seoul within two and a half hours. Millions will die. The last thing we want is a unilateral attack and lobbing some missiles from a ship off the coast into North Korea. Especially without the support of China. Remember, it was China that was really the force with the communists in the 1950s. That's why we have north and South Korea. China will block us. We have to have China onboard. China does not want this happening on their border.

So now, this morning, in Mar-a-Lago, the president of China is getting up, and they're having a little breakfast staring at each other. Last night when the president in Mar-a-Lago said "Excuse me, just a second, I have to speak to the American people."

He went, and he said I told you -- this is obviously not what he said. But I told you that when a president draws a red line, a president has to follow through on it. I told you this was unacceptable, and I'm just enforcing the red line that our last do nothing president refused to enforce.

He said it was unacceptable, I said it was unacceptable. I don't care what the rest of the world think so. I don't care if it's Russia on the other side, I'm launching.

He basically says that to the American people. Well, he says something different to the American people but that's what he was saying to China. China.

So he walks back with the president of China, and that's what the president of China heard. Yeah, I don't really care about Russia. I just saw that this was wrong, and we're not going to tolerate it, and I don't care what the rest of the world think so.

Now, what is the president of China thinking about Donald Trump? This is a -- and I don't -- they rehearsed this for two days. So this is something they had been working towards since the gassing. So this was not planned in advance for this, it just happened to fall into brilliant, almost providential timing.

So what are the conversations with China going to be?

Now the president of China realizes crap, we are not dealing with Barack Obama. We are not even dealing with a guy who I think is necessarily sane. He's a guy who said the one China policy, out. And, by the way, I don't care what you say. You're cheating us with trade. I want a better trade deal. And, oh, by the way, I'm willing to lob missiles and go to war alone in North Korea.

The president of China -- remember, their mind-set is entirely different. The president of China is looking at that saying "If I'm looking at the next 500 years, I need to get past the next four with this guy. And this guy just might do it.

This worked out really well if you are in the United States and concerned about war with North Korea. This possibly gave us the upper hand at the talks with China today because China does not want a war, and they certainly do not want the United States going in there unilaterally.

Mark my words. Neither do I. I don't want a war. I don't -- we have known about North Korea and if I may go back in a time tunnel and repeat the words of a monologue I gave in about 2003, you must take care of North Korea now because there will be a time when you have no good options, and they will have nuclear weapons. You have to be tough with them now on sanctions. Well, that time obviously is 14 years ago.

We do not want a war with North Korea. We do not want a war with China. We do not want a war with Russia. And the most disturbing thing I heard from the president last night was regime change. We want regime change.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Can Frustrated Conservatives Learn from the Tea Party? | Matt Kibbe | Ep 92

The nation was shocked as the "Save America" rally in Washington, D.C., devolved into a siege of the U.S. Capitol. The day after, as heads were still spinning, Glenn sits down with Matt Kibbe, host of BlazeTV's "Kibbe on Liberty," to look at what led to this: Woke authoritarianism is in power, lockdowns are unending, and the Left has finally found out how to weaponize fear. The media is all too happy to watch the country burn, as long as the Left is holding the torch. But Glenn and Matt remember the lessons learned from the Tea Party, Martin Luther King Jr., and other movements that found success through peace. Conservatives and libertarians must find a path forward so we have more 9-12 marches, fewer stormings of the Capitol, and real change from those who believe they rule over us.

Here's how the left used COVID-19 to DESTROY us & our kids

COVID 19 was used to not only destroy businesses, morale, and education but to destroy us and our kids, too. The left is in control of nearly everything now, and they've used that power to make us feel alone. Glenn says he believes a miracle could happen to turn this great nation back towards the principles on which it was founded — BUT, we must turn back towards God first. Life DOES have meaning and tomorrow WILL be better.
