This congress will be briefed by top officials of the administration on iran and it's happening this afternoon. Joining us now is florida. Senator rick, scott senator scott will be in that meeting today. Now you've always favored mr. senator a tough stance on iran, but you don't want to go to war with them. Do you? Oh absolutely not you know. Our military op should never be the first option by the ...
way steward those poor panda bears. When they go back to china, they will not have as good a lifestyle they will have. I'Ve been i've been to china zoos before it's. Nothing like the san, diego zoo, but going back to iran we're gon na have abriefing this afternoon. I look forward to see hearing that i've read. I'Ve read the intelligence report.

Let'S remember iran is not our friend you're. Like then you're like the bully and in your neighborhood, when you're going up there just causing problems they're like the thugs causing problems, they're yelling, death to america, they want to get rid of israel. We'Ve got to stand up to them and i'm glad the president is doing that, but the policy which i mean what not have been talked about is containment. You know you know block them in so they can't mess around in the rest of the mideast that they're kept in their little box containment, that's the best policyisn't it well in. Let'S remember, they're not staying in their own box they're in venezuela. You you've seen the pictures of the children dying in venezuela, maduro starving as citizens to death. Iran has helped them, along with china and russia and cuba and hezbollah. So we have got to do everything we can to make sure that iran does not get nuclear weapons. Iran has would they have to struggle with their economy, so they cannot take. You know, take their their profits and their assets and do more bad things. They'Ve already done enough bad. So it's i look forward to the briefing i'm glad the person standing up to iran.

We have got to stand forfreedom and democracy in this world. I think the last time you were on the program you call for a naval blockade of venezuela. Did that happen. Are we doing that? It'S not happened yet, but we need to do it. I mean every day children are dying in venezuela every day. I'Ve been the border. I just got back from colombia last week. Again, it's it's. It'S just pure genocide and it's being supported by all the bad actors. China, iran, cuba's the biggest bad actor down there. We'Ve and the only reason they're there is: they want access to the venezuelan oil. They don't care about the people of venezuela.

They have no concern about them. They'Re theones that are defending maduro right now. We'Ve got a blockade, the ports in cuba, so they do not have any access to any venezuelan oil. So we've got a forced cuba to act responsibly. We'Ve got it, i mean this is what president trump is doing. He needs to do this. He needs to. We got to make sure, there's there's world order where we promote democracy and freedom in this world. Maybe that can come up in the meeting this afternoon block a little venezuela, okay. Mr. senator, as always. Thank you very much for joining us, sir.

We'Ll see you again soon, thanks to it. Yes, sir.
