Following are key excerpts from Blunt’s interview:

“These people have lied to three American presidents in a row and now have gotten to this point. And the message that the president sent was for him, but it was also for the neighborhood and particularly, I think, for the Chinese who should have been listening. …

“[I] think it is important not to take things off the table. Presidents, over the years, who have been most successful in foreign policy, like Reagan and Eisenhower, never took things off of the table. Now, they didn’t speak in that exact language, but they both always made it clear the United States would do whatever the United States needed to do… I think that's exactly what the president is doing, while others like Rex Tillerson, and at the U.N, and other places we work these other channels, they should not assume that we’re going continue to let them do whatever they want to do and then black mail us out of what they might do.”
