Center for Security Policy President Frank Gaffney joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Wednesday’s Breitbart News Daily to discuss President Trump’s Asia trip, China, and other political developments.

“It’s an opportunity for the President to show the flag, quite literally,” said Gaffney of Trump’s Asia trip, “in a lot of places where it needs to be shown.”

Added Gaffney, “particularly allied countries that are now feeling threatened by Communist China and its proxy, North Korea. and I think the time he spent in China, the time he spent with allies of ours” and others “are all the things I think we want the President of the United States to be doing.”

Gaffney also said he thought Trump “acquitted himself well” during the trip but added that the crisis with North Korea is at a crisis point.

He also went on to discuss the growing threat from China, economic and otherwise, as well as the Uranium One scandal, adding that he hopes Attorney General Sessions will begin to hold the Clinton’s to account for any alleged corruption.

Breitbart News Daily airs on SiriusXM Patriot 125 weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Eastern.
