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.

Marxist Methods: Debunking the Left's LIES About Critical Race Theory

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

'They believe their job is to REMAKE your child': WSJ writer warns public schools may be LOST to woke trans activism

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

Is California ‘PURPOSEFULLY’ destroying this small business?

It seems like some politicians are purposefully trying to destroy the lives and dreams of certain Americans, specifically small business owners. Dave Foldes spoke to Glenn over six months ago after THIS audience raised thousands of dollars for his restaurant that refused to close: Cronies Sports Grill. Now, despite making progress in his administrative battle against LA, the city of Agoura Hills, California is coming for Cronies instead. And the reasoning is INSANE. But Foldes isn't giving up, and neither are his supporters. It's the ultimate David vs. Goliath showdown.

Trans Activism Will End Your Parental Rights | Abigail Shrier | Ep 110

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it is incredibly dangerous. Just ask Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier. Her book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — just like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, Shrier argues it could end your parental rights for good. She is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy number one to the activists. Recently, the American Booksellers Association even called sending her book to others "a serious, violent incident." Abigail joins Glenn to lay out just how slippery this slope has proven to be and what we — conservatives and liberals — must do to protect our children.
