William Cohen on Trump's "disheartening" response to Charlottesville
Former Secretary of Defense William Cohen calls President Trump's reaction to Charlottesville "disheartening" and thinks a divided country undermines national security. The Republican lawmaker also served in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, and has had a hand in shaping history. He explains why Trump is right to ask China for more help against North Korea, and why a unified Korean peninsula is in China's best interest.
