Obama, Netanyahu Meeting Comes With Baggage

President Barack Obama once again finds himself in the middle of a high-stakes, tension-fraught meeting with a key leader from the Middle East.

Must be Monday.

Just days after a historic phone call between Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, the U.S. president is scheduled to meet with his Israeli counterpart, Benjamin Netanyahu, at the White House late Monday morning.

CNN's Christiane Amanpour spoke with "New Day's" Chris Cuomo  about the situation and gave her analysis.

Amanpour says, “It can’t just be smiling while spinning, spinning being the centrifuges in Iran. There has to be substance, and of course, to everybody’s interest, there has to be substance.”
