Hi everybody. I’m Ian Bremmer. And I am here with your World In 60 Seconds. It’s what I do every week.
I’ve got your questions, they’re right here. I’m usually wearing a blazer, no tie.
It’s kind of the way it works. Why don’t we get started, right now. As like, the most violent, lacking infrastructure and governance and horrible treatment of women, place in the world . . . Except, President Trump really wants to
end an 18-year long war. And John Bolton is no longer national security advisor so it’s gonna be easier for Trump pull off. I suspect there’ll be more negotiations.
Something Trump really wants to do before he has his re-election bid is say:
“I’ve ended the war in Afghanistan.” Mission accomplished. Well, not really. I mean, parliament actually, through legislation said that
Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, has to ask for extension. French President said: “I refuse unless there is some
form and change to the status quo.” We are as muddled as we were two weeks ago. Heck, two years ago. Still a lot to watch there. No, but they’re gonna get small and
the reason they get smaller is in part because the
students are going back to school, in part because Xi Jinping and the executive, Carrie Lam, has said “yes” on the initial demand which is: End that new extradition law. And that means that is going to be harder to maintain the level of support for the protesters, demonstrators, that you’ve had over the
course the past several months. That’s your World In 60 Seconds.
