National security and the Trump White House. How the new administration is handling challenges from Russia to North Korea to terrorism.
Let’s step back for a minute here. We’ve got the national security adviser to the [resident of the United States out after 20-some days. Reports all over of chaos in the National Security Council. The president coordinating response to a North Korean missile test in full view of diners on the terrace at Mar-a-Lago. The general in charge of U.S. Special Operations lamenting “unbelievable turmoil.” Is this just politics? Are we safe? This hour On Point, national security and the Trump White House. — Tom Ashbrook
