RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
O’REILLY: “Hi, I’m Bill O’Reilly. Thanks for watching us tonight. Donald Trump, commander-in-chief, that is the subject of this evening’s talking points. As we reported last week, president’s job approval numbers are likely to go up because he took strong action against Syria after Assad gassed his own people. Right off the bat, Mr. Trump 3% and a new CBS news poll that is likely to rise even further this week. When CBS asked do you approve or disapprove the U.S. launching missiles against Syria, 57% approved. 36% disapproved. 8% don’t know. Do you have confidence in Donald Trump’s ability to handle a situation in Syria? 41% confident, 54% not confident confident. Finally, do you think it’s necessary for Congress to approve any further attacks in Syria, a whopping 69% say it is. Congress should get involved. Britain’s Tony 5% do not feel it’s necessary. There are new development on the military front this evening. U.S. warships are heading for the Korean peninsula because the nutty dictator of that country continues to test ballistic missiles and violate international law. Also, two warships in the eastern Mediterranean continue to monitor Syria. There’s also an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf, the George W. Bush. You can see the President Trump and the Pentagon sending signals, if the world order is threatened on, America may respond. It’s a damn shame where the only country willing to take that stance. There’s no reason for Russia to prop up Assad and Syria, the man’s a war criminal. Also China does not try to control the north Korean situation when it absolutely could. Staunch allies like Britain, Australia, to help us out but it’s on a limited basis. Unfortunately, policing the world falls to America with all the danger and expense that entails. President Trump would be wise to respond. As the attack on Syria worked and was approved by most of the world who care about protecting innocent people. Yes, Russia and Iran are now threatening the usa, but so what? Those countries have thrown in with the devil and we cannot back away from their bluster. However, confrontation with Russia is not what anybody wants or needs. So President Trump would be wise to talk to Vladimir Putin quietly, try to get the guy to wise up perhaps by helping his economy. Iran truly a hopeless situation and, but they don’t want to commit suicide. The new treaty will eventually play out as one of the great mysteries. It is likely the North Korea will be the next problem we have to deal with. They test a nuclear device, again in violation of international law, something will have to be done. Donald Trump convinced the Chinese to partner up with us against North Korea in, would end the problem and get the world order and for business. Again, it’s a mystery why the Chinese will not exert their strength and influence on North Korea. Coming up, President Trump gained a measure of respect for his acts against Syria. U.S. Military is gearing up, but caution should be the word. And that’s the memo.”
