John Negroponte is one of the leading diplomats of our age. When he was a young man, he was at Henry Kissinger’s side in Vietnam. He had a Latin American career, including the ambassadorships to Mexico and Honduras. He was also ambassador to the Philippines.
In the George W. Bush years, he was ambassador to Iraq, and ambassador to the U.N. He was also director of national intelligence and deputy secretary of state.
Jay talks with him about the Philippines – the new sheriff in town. And about the infernal problem of North Korea. And China and Japan.
Then they talk about Venezuela, that miserable state. And Mexico and NAFTA. And Europe and Putin.
Finally, there are general questions, concerning “America First,” “globalism,” a new “American century,” etc.
John Negroponte is a voice of experience, and a crystal-clear talker as well.
