Trump on Olympics: 'I'll be there' in 2021

Description:

President Trump discusses a phone call he had with Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe about the delay of the Olympics due to the spread of COVID-19.


The Tokyo 2020 Olympics have officially been postponed to no "later than summer 2021" due to the fallout from the global coronavirus pandemic. The decision affects Japan in more ways than one.
Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano says he supports President Trump's decisions to commute former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's prison sentence and pardon financier Michael Milken and former New York Police Department Commissioner Bernard Kerik.
In last night's CBS News Democratic presidential debate, candidates spent much of their time ganging up on Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in an effort to derail his momentum ahead of the South Carolina primary on Saturday and Super Tuesday next week. CBS News political correspondent Ed O'Keefe joins CBSN from Charleston to break down the heated debate.
Obama chief speechwriter Cody Keenan reacts to Trump's wild, reality show-style state of the Union speech that ended with the text being torn in half by Speaker Pelosi. Aired on 02/4/20.
