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.


Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'


How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…


Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.


'HARMFUL CONTENT': How King Biden Is KILLING the Constitution

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
