BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): The emergency meetings that Secretary of State [Mike] Pompeo was forced to cancel and have with our European allies put off in the short-term, Germany and Greenland, and then he went quickly to Iraq. And then he met with our European allies to simply say, look, look at the evidence we have of what Iran is up to. Are you still interested in staying with this agreement, even though within 60 days they have also pledged to enrich uranium, which is a violation of the plan you are holding to. And for those who say the president should never have left the plan, well maybe the previous president should have passed the plan. He did not have the Senate approval of 60 votes. He lost key Democrats. He had 40 votes. And had he put the treaty and had it passed, the president would have had to overturn it. Instead he had a piece of paper which he thought was not worth what it was printed on.
