2:53 am
their ballistic missile program. i can't stress enough how badly this deal has hurt american security. the american government has got to figure out what to do because we cannot allow either of these countries to have the ability to coerce the united states. heather: how to do we get to this point? is one political party to blame over the other? >> both political parties deserve a lot of the blame because neither one did something to stop the programs. on all of this there was bipartisan work that put pressure and sanctions on iran over the years but it was the obama administration that released those sanctions because of the iran deal and we are suffering the consequences. we have got to get the ballistic missile defense system in place and invest in the ones that protect the united states homeland because the obama administration cut the missile defense budget especially the piece that protect the united states homeland and half. we have got to reinvest in that and get sanctions back on and come up with credible deterrent
2:54 am
mechanisms the countries know the united states won't allow them to have these programs come to fruition. heather: what would those credible resources be? we have seen sanctions not working. >> there are more sanctions on iran piece because of the iran deal, we have to start ramping them up again. on the north korean piece we have to put pressure on china. china has to understand they cannot be the enabler of north korea so more sanctions on china but you have to have wargames with our allies to show these countries the united states is willing to build a coalition and threatened them with force if we need to. heather: we are running out of time. i want to touch briefly if we have time on the announcement yesterday the president made in terms of transgenders and how you see that working into what is going on in the world today. >> i agree with donald trump's decision to reverse the last-ditch effort of the obama
