As Rodger Stone to see him said that his first loyalty is his family in this country president Trump is meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin later this month Russian election meddling or earlier we spoke with some tech report who said the meddling is continuing the reporting is showing that so do you expect this to be a big discussion point between the 2 president they are going to have to somehow address is 16th in terms is definitely something that is going to be carefully observe the point of her 3 is that this is not just about Russia’s involvement in the meddling in the u.s. election but it’s also extending far most of National Security concerns whether it’s their annexation of Crimea Singapore when the president of North Korea leader Kim Jong Min and finally I would know the importance at the private sector place here in working with government officials have Republicans and Democrats alike and how they have to better prepare themselves all every all of those parties private sector included are going to be watching for that July 16th meeting to see what type of signals President Putin as well as president Trump are signaling towards the private sector only watched meeting from a lot of sources Kevin’s really thank you
