Tax bombshell reveals Trump's image is a sham
"In federal income tax is the year he ran for office and paid zero income taxes at all in many other years. Threatened to undercut his campaign. But the allegations go to the very heart of Mr Trump's appeal, especially among blue collar voters in states like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin in Michigan, who propelled him to the presidency in 2016. Joining us now is a B C's, Adam, Kelsey and first off How did Mr Trump get away with not paying his taxes? Well, Jeff what it comes down to is ah lot of reductions in the amount of taxable income that President Trump has because he takes so many loans because of so many investments in companies that that Are not necessarily under his name. He can write off. Ah, lot of the income that ends up coming back into him. So what you've got here is 10 out of the past 15 years for which The New York Times had these tax records from 2017 going all the way back to 2000 to 10 of those 15 years, President Trump As you mentioned did not pay federal income taxes. There was ah, year or two in which he did pay tens of millions of dollars in taxes to the IRS actually returned that to trump upwards of $70 million in a refund that he claimed he was due again, based on some risky investments that he made the the IRS rules and regulations allow into claim those as Boston coming. Those were returned. So now that $70 million is the subject of an audit, there's a debate between the president. Oh, and his own federal government over how much you may have to pay back. But the bigger picture that you were mentioning is that this really strikes at the heart of what's so many Trump supporters liked about him that he was a successful businessman, a self proclaimed billionaire and looking through these financial records, it would. Actually it paints the picture of somebody who, instead of being worth billions of dollars could oh, upwards of billions of dollars to several different Ah, loners of money. You've got hundreds of millions of dollars and Loans for buildings that President Trump owns in New York City and across the country that are going to be coming due in the next couple of years. It's raising some questions today about whether or not it's such a good idea to have a president United States it would be on the hook for such a big deal coming up. Is anything in the president's tax is illegal. What did we find any legal wrongdoing? There was all hit all his deductions and everything he did above board. Ah, lot of it is above board. And that's that's one of the major criticism that's being levied today Is that the same Ah senators, congressmen who are criticizing President Trump for pains so little were in some ways the architects of the affluent tax loopholes that he and his accounts were able to take. But there are some questions about some of the moves. He's made one in particular, that's been getting a lot of traction and social media for the past 24 hours. His payments that President Trump me do his daughter Ivanka. She's obviously an employee of the Trump administration. She was receiving a regular salary, but in addition was receiving money for consulting work that President Trump then turned around and tried to take off his taxes basically as a refund, So there's some questions there. About whether you know that this double dipping is potentially fraudulent, and whether either Ivanka Trump shouldn't have been receiving those consulting fees or of President Trump shouldn't have been writing those off tax. How is the president defended his actions. All the kneejerk reaction yesterday was that this was fake news to which critics of the president said. Well, if this isn't true, if these aren't your tax returns, all you need to do is turn over your realtor tax returns and proved that the New York Times is wrong on this. Obviously, the president hasn't done this and then The resulting hours we've seen, you know a lot of deflection. We've seen the president and his Children going on television and talking instead about Joe Biden and his son, Hunter and Hunter Biden dealings with With Russia and with businesses in the Ukraine so instead of kind of head on addressing these issues, trying to distract the media if you will to talk about different matters instead. But I wouldn't anticipate that with the first presidential debate coming up about 24 hours from now, Tuesday evening, we're certainly gonna cure President Trump have to answer for this situation. All right. That's a B, C's and Kelsey. Thank you so much for joining us. Come on

New York, Hawaii and Jersey filing suit toehold disruptions ahead of November's presidential election. Controversy swirls around Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is set to address the Republican National Convention from Jerusalem. Adam Kelsey is covering this story for ABC News and spoke with comas Jeff Pooja Democrats in particular, but probably not exclusively. Not so happy about this. Why is that Democrats feeling as this is an improper use of Mike Pompeo time while he's in the midst of a trip for a trip to the Middle East? Ah, and also potentially a violation of the Hatch Act, which prohibits executive branch employees from involving themselves in any political activity. President Trump vice president Pence are obviously excluded from that law. But Mike Pompeo, a basically would need to take off his secretary of state and make it abundantly clear that he is acting as a private citizen if he chooses to engage in any political activities. Democrats are basically saying that that's impossible while he's in Israel, and he's going to be delivering The speech tonight, a pre taped address, But he's going to be doing so from Jerusalem, and Democrats are saying it's impossible for him to be off the clock while he's in the middle of this trip. Now, Pompeo has said that again. He's doing this as a private citizen that the Trump campaign is paying for all the logistics surrounding the speech, you know, not the rest of the trip throughout the Middle East, but they are in charge of everything that's going on tonight and then it's no different. And you know any other member of the government taking part in this convention, but Basically this is an unprecedented move by sitting Secretary of State Department, of course, also has always throughout history tried to basically make itself non political pride, trying to present a united front to the rest of the world rather than getting involved in this presidential election on DH, tipping their hand at some level of bias here, so it'll be interesting to see what is included in popular remarks. But in the meantime Democrats pursuing an investigation now into what went into the planning of this speech. What is Pompeo himself for the Trump Administration for that matter, or the Trump campaign, said about this criticism? Well, Republicans hold kind of shrugging their shoulders at this and arguing that this isn't a big deal that Pompeo by the end of the day. When you're getting ready to take this speeches is off the clock, and he can do whatever he wants, just like any other private citizen. But at the same time, Republicans went after Democrats in the past for what they were labeling Hatch Act violations as well. One of the most notable ones was beyond Castro, who At one point last year was in the running for the Democratic presidential nomination. Back when he was secretary of Housing and Gruban Development, hey was accused by Republicans of talking up Hillary Clinton's campaign back in 2016 while he was in the midst of housing and urban development business. So these these accusations go back and forth every four years or so that members of the executive branch not be waiting. It's politics, but Have I mentioned before? The State Department, in particular, has always tried to show I away from this. Pompeo actually sent a memo out two State department employees a few months ago, reminding them not to get involved in any political activities. Ah, lot of Democrats now labeling him a hypocrite because he is going to be doing this. That's ABC is Adam Kelsey, and that's comas. Jeff Pooja.

Adam Democrats have to be pleased at how this first night unfolded. Okay, I hear you, but I'm here. Okay, Adam, if you could, uh, what do you think about the first night? Democrats have to be pleased with what they saw and heard. Well, really impressive the way that they covered quite a bit of ground everything from racial justice to the economy. We heard a little bit about healthcare from Bernie Sanders. Just a few minutes ago, Andre had the inclusion of of those former Republicans speaking about the way in which they've been disappointed by Donald Trump by his actions, by the way that the country is in a state of disunity and why they're defecting to Democrats. Of course, a lot to talk about the current virus pandemic is well strong remarks from Andrew Cuomo, who Stickley compared the federal government to the virus and says in not so many words, that the federal government is sick right now, and it cannot be cured unless there is new leadership. And then, of course, the star of the show, the former first lady Michelle Obama, wrapping up her remarks just a second ago. Always, you know, one of the most beloved political figures in this country and and and setting the stakes for this election, rather clearly saying that the United States can either take a step back towards decent. See under a Joe Biden presidency. Or they can have four more years of turmoil. A message when delivered by Michelle Obama is really going to hit home, I think with lots of voters Yeah, You know, One thing we're not hearing is a lot of Trump bashing. Now there seems to be an obvious set to go. I, as Michelle Overland said made a lot different than, say, Philadelphia. Do you think maybe there was a lesson learned that that didn't work? We gotta kind of method out without just constantly meant mentioning the president. Yeah, well, I certainly think a big part of that is not trying to demonize former Trump voters who may be thinking about voting for Joe Biden. I think the last thing they want to do is make you know, potentially hundreds of thousands. Americans in swing states like Michigan and Wisconsin and Ohio feel bad about themselves feel bad about taking a chance on President Trump four years ago because those airboats that they're going to desperately need come November, so there certainly was criticism of the president, but many speakers did not mention him by name. The former Republican governor of Ohio. John Kasich, who was a big speaker tonight made on Ly passing reference to the president while talking about kind of the situation overall in Washington, D C and why he's supporting Joe Biden. And I think that was really important for Democrats as well because as much as they might want to focus and talk about President Trump, There are a lot of Democrats who voted for other candidates in the presidential primary. Who still maybe warming to Joe Biden and so a sales pitch on their behalf. You know, particularly from somebody like Bernie Sanders to sell to the progress Sieves that are out there that why Joe Biden is the right candidate for them.

Joining us live with the very latest, Adam Was this a surprise to anybody considering the senator's background or long pedigree and the fact that she's worked With Biden son Beau in the past. Well, I would say that Joe Biden certainly took his time did his due diligence and deciding who was going to be on the ticket with him in November, But Kamala Harris is somebody who was a front runner all along. One of the key issues that was working in Harris's his favor is the fact that she ran a relatively successful presidential campaign last year. You may remember some of her strong debate performances, including going after Joe Biden's record on race relations and on busing early last summer. She faded a little bit into the winter dropping out in December. But this is somebody who the Biden campaign is not. Going to have to coach up between now and November.

Adam Let me ask you. Is there any reaction that you've seen or heard there in those parts? Ah, mostly positive reaction from the Democratic Party so far from every wing of the party, Bernie Sanders out with a statement congratulating Kamala Harris some of the other finalists to be Joe Biden's running mate like Susan Rice and Val Demings, sending their well wishes to Harris's well on even Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton. Obviously no strangers to the Democratic Party presidential ticket, wishing her well but backlash, of course on the Republican side. With members of President Trump's campaign, putting out a statement a short while ago saying that Harris eyes a far left progressive. She is trying to drag Joe Biden to the left to that wing to that Bernie Sanders wing of the party. Obviously, they're gearing up to attack her when Vice President Mike Pence states are on in a debate later this fall, and Adam, you know everybody's waiting to hear that first Street or to see that first week from President Trump, right? Yeah, We're still waiting on it. At this point. He has not signed in a personally but we're expecting for him to certainly comment on this pic. He had some words for Kamala Harris last year.

Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer is dead, set on the $600 unemployment number kept millions out of poverty. That's the it's probably the number one reason people have stayed out of poverty. GOP Senator Rick Scott problem we have is the Democrats don't want to do a deal. They could. We could have done an extension last week of employment. Schumer blocked it. We could have way. Agreed we had a proposal to pay 2/3 unemployment threw the in the year shimmer blocked it so they don't I don't want to do a deal. Adam Kelsey, Our ABC news correspondent in Washington, breaks it down for US Senate and negotiators in the lighthouse continue to be stalled. I would say that the wheels are not moving at this point. It's seven straight day, the Treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin, and White House chief of Staff Mark Meadows heading up to Capitol Hill to meet with Democratic leaders. And what continues to be at the center of this impasse is the negotiation over those expanded unemployment benefits that expired last week. Unemployed Americans nearly 30 million of receiving an extra six Dollars per week from the government that money ran out at the end of July. And Democrats want to keep that going. Pandemic continues all the way until January. But on the Republican side they want to reduce that amount down $200. They continue to argue that in some cases unemployed Americans are making more money out of work than they were. If they returned back to the job. They see that Americans need incentive to get backto work, you dick economy back building, so we heard a few compromise proposals from Republicans. A couple of days. But as I mentioned Democrats really not budging on that $600 number, I said, we believe in the $600. I'm not negotiating in front of you. They want to keep this thing going until January, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying just yesterday that she is not very hopeful that a deal is going to get done by the end of the week. So this is something that might drag on melons. August So Adam. I've heard some people say, well, the Democrats what 600 Republicans want 200. Can they meet in the middle of for 100 you would certainly think it's that easy, You know, meet in the middle. You know, both sides have their points the Democrats saying as well. That $600 could be a boost to the economy could little extra spending money for the folks who were out of work. But what it comes down to me, this is a supplement that the federal government is providing on top of state unemployment, a cz well and state unemployment pay outs are different State by state you've got Like California, where you guys are. That's a little bit more generous with unemployment payments. You got other states in the Midwest and the South that provide monies are depending on where you live, you might be in a better or more dire situations of the Democratic argument is, you know, while we could put those two numbers in half and provide for $100.400 dollars, because little way or a long way, depending on Where these unemployed workers lived. So ah lot more complicated negotiations going on behind the scenes as opposed to just kind of split that number. Yeah, OK. Well, Adam Kelsey, their ABC news correspondent in Washington.

"Oh, eight out of Friday at news ninety six point five WDBO will get another check on the mad rush home and the weekend forecast. First we want to welcome in Adam Kelsey, he is at the conservative political action conference happening now in Maryland, Adam great to speak with you. Thanks for joining Orlando's evening news. I don't know why maybe because the president was just in Vietnam with the North Korean nuclear summit. But it seems like we haven't had as much lead up to the CPAC this year as we have in the past couple of years. But if you go back even further than that. I mean, this event has really evolved into like must be Republican event. Right. Yeah. The one what they call. It is just gathering of American conservatives in the country. And like you mentioned I think it under the radar not just because of President Trump's summit. North Korean leaders on this week? But also because of the testimony of his former attorney Michael Cohen kind of distracted attention away from what was going on here in Maryland. But what was going on here is that the president's base is really focused on getting him reelected in twenty twenty in talking to people here. You would never know that there are these kind of controversy swirling around him. They pushed aside. The Muller report is if it's nothing they pushed aside the Coen testimony from earlier this week calling him a liar. They're focused on the economy, which continued to say is grooming on unemployment at record lows and Mike Pence was here today as well really having a focus on southern border security. He's maintaining that they're going to get that wall at all costs in not issuing a threat, but challenging other Republicans on Capitol Hill to make sure that President Trump's emergency declaration season place, and they have the funding for that wall. There's always a lot of passion at this event. And I specifically remember last year. Year. I mean, very passionate gathering there. But is there more so now because of the Michael Cohen thing people are really really passionate about what's happening with President Trump will it. Permanent home supporters are are somewhat defensive, you know. Somebody underdog despite his wealth and his team but somebody who entered the presidential race back in two thousand fifteen as an outsider. This was a convention of outsider screwing longtime people who couldn't get a seat at the table. Now that he's an office that passion is manifesting itself. Innate defense of his legacy on preemptively, basically saying that's the reason why the economy still good. He's been the reason why the military has been so successful against ISIS, and then pushing back against this idea that Democrats have made inroads certainly over the past year. Democrats are successful during the term elections. Already looking ahead to twenty twenty. But when you talk to here at the convention don't push back, and they'll say to the Republican party that President Trump the White House the administration as long as you're certainly passionate on that. And I believe the president will be speaking there tomorrow that obviously the highlight of the weekend. Adam Kelsey for us at the CPAC convention in Maryland. Adam thank you very much. Thanks,.

As ABC correspondent at Kelsey stands by political correspondent for him out of Washington here momentarily, so we had to bail and Patrice Akhara make room for him. And I guess still waiting for the race in Georgia the governor's race where Stacey Abrams has yet to concede. Not sure how close that is. But. All right. We have Adam Kelsey standing by. We do on phone or is Dan phone. It is. All right. Adam Kelsey, good to talk to you. How you doing, sir? Doing. Well. How are you? Thank you. All right. You probably have seen this on Twitter that the president has now endorsed Nancy Pelosi for speaker of the house. Yeah. It's interesting to see him, basically lent. His endorsement to somebody who is so despised by Republicans. But that's obviously the reason I he wants to put Nancy Pelosi in charge because she is a villain. She's somebody that he can play off of when he's running for election in twenty twenty. You see it in an ad across the country are Republicans basically warning their constituents that you don't want San Francisco liberal in the mold of Nancy Pelosi, representing your district. So maybe not surprising to see the president trying to use her as the villain once again. It's just interesting that first thing in the morning. I won't say popped into his head. It might have been part of the plan all along who knows? Now, we had Democrats in battleground states members of the Senate here anybody who opposed the confirmation of judge cavenaugh has lost their race to what degree do we think? That's the reason they were in tight races to begin with correct? Yeah. We're we're trying to feel that out over the course of the last couple of weeks and Senator how do you hike camp? In North Dakota was the first person that we saw today hit in the polls because of her vote on the bread Cavanaugh hearings. But to see it play out in Missouri. Claire mccaskill was actually pulling pretty well in recent days in Indiana. Joe Donnelly, another sitting member of the Senate again was pulling pretty well in recent days, obviously shows you what an impact it had. And then on the flip side Senator Joe Manchin in West Virginia who voted for the confirmation break avenue. He ends up getting reelected one of the most red states in the country. Generally, speaking, all across the country things kind of played out the way, the polls suggested I mean the tight races with a tight races. Whether that's governorships in Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina. I guess some of these are still up in the air. Stacey Abrams has yet to concede there. So the tight races where the tight races. But generally, the polls much more accurate than they were two years ago. Yeah, we we. I would agree that that we were somewhat on track. This year some of the pickups like I mentioned before Missouri. Indiana flight surprises, given what we've seen in recent days. But it looks like the house of representatives is gonna come in and of right where we expected ABC news partner five thirty eight dot com. I had had edited around thirty five thirty six seats. We're at twenty eight right now still a few outstanding in California should come in. I write about their. So I haven't seen much as far as west coast numbers are concerned other any surprises anywhere. Any one thing? You could point to and say, well that wasn't entirely expected. I won't point to the west coast, but I will point to Oklahoma congressional district flipped. It went to the democrat in that race. We had one hundred and eight congressional races that we were watching last night you Oklahoma fifth. Congressional district wasn't even on the list. And that was the one we were scrambling for last night trying to learn a little bit more about the candidates, and again, Oklahoma state, usually think of as a very red state elected a Republican governor last night, but Democrats day one seat there is there a good sized city in that district. Yeah. We're we're talking center of the state not so far from Oklahoma City. That's a that's a city with some changing demographics where we're seeing more young people more diverse population. So in that sense, maybe not so surprising. But like I said we had one hundred and eight different districts across the country that we thought would be more competitive than that one that one really sneaked up on us. So as looking ahead in this case to Washington and the president and to what degree he might work to get along. Well with a democratic house mean the Pelosi thing obviously is is a ploy. I'm waiting to see what her response to that would be, but the degree to which you think the president would reach out to Democrats what we see Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer on the Senate side make some visits to the White House in the past couple of years. They've had some conversations with the president and we've had a few moments in which it seemed like President Trump was willing to reach across the aisle only to be rebuffed by his own party as far as immigration health care. The economy goes. Some VAT disagreements there, but I think the one issue that they may be able to work on together is infrastructure, and that's something that President Donald Trump campaigned on in two thousand sixteen he hasn't been able to get anything I substantially Pat in the interim, I Democrats want to fix the same highways wanna fix the same airports that he does. I so it'd be interesting to see if they can do some negotiating there and Pat an infrastructure Bill, and then to what degree will they held him for investigations. I mean, you have people out there who will omit constituents who will one impeachment which isn't going to happen. But as far as. Full speed ahead with investigations investigating the Russian connection, which likely isn't they're going after his taxes. How far do you think they can or should push it? Yeah. Well, we're going to see in two specific committees. I think some form of action house intelligence committee likely to be chaired by California Democrat, Adam Schiff. I'm sure there's documents that they want to subpoena. I'm sure there's people that they wanna talk to you that they haven't been able to over the course of the Russian investigation. That's to keep an eye on. We've already heard from congressman Elijah Cummings. He's likely to be the chairman of the house oversight committee. He's going to be the one who maybe wants to take a look at the president's taxes and see if there's any funny business going on there. All right. Listen, I appreciate your time. Adam Adam Kelsey, and we'll talk again down the road some point see now, eight forty five right now at seven hundred w w story away from politics that hasn't gotten that much attention. We come back to Halloween, and there was at one story because each Halloween you have these concerns about you know, whatever somebody puts poison in your kids candy, and there was one story in Halloween. About a kid who supposedly got meth poisoning from someone's whose house he went to. And when I first heard it, the BSN kind of went up as a, you know, I think that's got something to do with dad. There's only one case out there any cables ever poisoned supposedly by Halloween candy, and it was a father who poisoned his own son number the the candy pixie sticks straw at the top of its full of sugar. The dad put whatever killed the son like cyanide or something in the in the pixie stick. Well, this one it turns out it was the data. Again, it was in in Ohio. Braille and car well was the five year old tested positive for meth after trick or treating police have arrested his dad Twenty-four-year-old father cambric car Carwell charged him with possession of math and evidence tampering. Police said, well, we're not dif- definitively saying have little boy ingested the methamphetamine. We're extremely confident. He did not ingest any candy from trick or treat. That was tainted earlier that was the case turns out, his parents are both recovering drug. Addicts railings mother said I'm not covering up the truth. The case was suspicious from the start. They said the boy had barely eaten any of his candy only chomped down on some toy vampire teeth when he started shaking and lost control of his limbs. His parents that he was having a seizure took him to the hospital. They didn't know he had ingested any methamphetamine apparently at that point. According to the mom said the left side of his face. It just got droopy then he fell couldn't move his arm. Didn't know where he was didn't know what he was doing dodgers performed the drug test and found the meth in his system at that point. So the boy now's doing fine. He's home. He's back at school not showing any ill-effects long-term, but dad's gonna be off to prison at some point. On the public doesn't have to worry about tainted. Halloween, candy, again, it had nothing to do with that. They say it's safe for kids to dress up go out and grab some sweets. It's going to be fine. So that was your first instinct is well. Congratulations to you. We were right? It's eight forty eight. Checking traffic, let's go Jason Earhart round the UCLA traffic.

"Thirty three partly cloudy, Saturday thirty three Sunday, partly to mostly cloudy, high of forty Waukesha, thirty two Milwaukee thirty four WTMJ. Midterms. Come and go for the most part if a recount here and there, but the nation has voted joining us live is ABC news political correspondent, Adam Kelsey WTMJ. Good morning, Adam. Hey, good morning. Thanks for having me. So what do we read is the outcome of what most everyone was taking last night as a referendum on President Donald Trump? Well, I would say that things between the house and the Senate went a bit as expected, obviously a decent night from Republicans in the Senate able to extend that majority by a couple of seats Democrats right now picks up picked up twenty eight seats in the house, and we're expecting that to increase by a few as well. But I think maybe the most interesting thing was how large the turnout was one hundred and thirteen million people voted in this midterm election. And that's nearly fifty percent of the voting eligible population. We've never even had a midterm election before over one hundred million people. So I think that goes to show you whether it's in support of President Trump in opposition to President Trump. People across this country feel very passionate about voting, and it showed the numbers last night. Adam how important it was the women's vote in this election? I think it was key particularly for Democrats in house races. And some of these suburban districts that went for Hillary Clinton back in two thousand sixteen or twenty five of those districts that went for Hillary Clinton while reelecting Republican members of congress right now Democrats have been able to flip fourteen of those. And then in a broader sense, we're seeing a more diverse group of winners last night than we've ever seen before. Ninety eight women were elected to the house of representatives last night. A lot of them backed by very strong, female supporters. We're going to have at least one hundred two outstanding races feature to women on each side. So seeing that we're going to have a more diverse congress than ever a lot of that has to do with a diverse. Electorate pushing candidates who represent them. We are live with ABC news political correspondent, Adam Kelsey and WTMJ. Speaking of women Nancy Pelosi is in line. The next speaker or issue do Democrats with somebody else right now. The only democrat that we know that has thrown her hat in the ring is Nancy Pelosi. If you asked me to put a bed on it. I would say that Nancy Pelosi makes the most sense for right now. She's the only one with leadership, and she could perhaps be a bridge to the next generation. Now, if you were to ask me who is that next generation who's the one member of congress, you stands out who might want to be speaker of the house. I'm not sure I could tell you. I think we're gonna see a name emerge at some point in time that perhaps we weren't expecting a congressman Tim Ryan from Ohio challenge Pelosi. I the last time that the Democrats were in power, but he hasn't spoken out yet. So it'll be interesting to see where already seeing President Donald Trump endorsing her candidacy tweet this morning, but he's clearly just trying to ruffle some feathers and portray her as a villain governor's race in Georgia atom even at early yesterday morning. There were reports of all kinds of problems with voting machines and polling places being shut down. Is there a good chance for a recount in Georgia? Do you think? Well, it's going to be interesting. We're going to need to see if Brian campus. St George and the Republican candidate if he even finishes with at least fifty percent. I right now we've got him at fifty percent to Stacey Abrams is forty nine percent. Georgia's one of these states where if neither candidate gets fifty fifty percent, we're going to get a runoff anyway. So complicating matters on top of that is that as secretary of state Brian Kemp overseas elections, there have been a lot of calls that he needs to recuse himself. Given the fact that he's involved. So if he finishes over fifty percent, and he's declared the winner that's the case in which I would see Abrams pursuing a recount Democrats. They had a pretty good shot at Senator Ted Cruz in Texas, but the incumbent one last night, what does that say about the democratic party's future in a chance at what many software four Democrats is a bit of low hanging fruit. Well, I'll say this Ted Cruz about is unpopular a Senator as they come at nationwide. The fact that he only won that seat by three percentage points, maybe doesn't bode so well for Republicans in the future, Texas is a demographically changing it's becoming younger a lot of Hispanic voters were backing. Over overwork the democratic candidate in that race. So even though Ted Cruz able to hang on. I think Texans need to. Maybe reevaluate the candidates that they're putting up and find some of these more moderate Republicans who can cross over and appeal to that changing electorate back to the house rue second. Adam the big debate. Now is what happens with Democrats in control of the house. Do they legislate or do they choose to investigate and open up all kinds of probes into the Trump administration? We'll certainly as far as legislation goes, we're going to see a lot of gridlock. If Democrats are trying to pursue issues that are are partisan. They're not gonna make a lot of progress if they wanna pursue healthcare. They wanna pursue immigration because Republicans in the Senate would block it on something maybe bipartisan like infrastructure. That's that's somewhere where we could see some negotiations things moving forward. But as far as investigations go to committees to keep an eye on house intelligence committee, which likely be chaired by California Democrat, Adam Schiff, certainly some documents. They're going to want to subpoena. People are gonna wanna talk to you in connection to the Russian Russia investigation. And then on the house oversight committee. We're already seen Maryland congressman Elijah Cummings likely going to be the chair committee. He said that he's interested in learning a little bit more about President Donald Trump stances ABC, those political analyst Adam Kelsey joining us live on WGM J M. Thank you so much great.

"Nine right now at seven hundred. Brian calms, you stuck his head in the door and said that. Trump. Just endorsed Nancy Pelosi speaker of the house and guest here in just a couple of minutes. As ABC correspondent, Adam Kelsey stands by political correspondent for him out of Washington here momentarily, so we had to bail and Patrice Akhara make room for him. And I guess there's still waiting for the race in Georgia. The governor's race where Stacey Abrams has yet to concede. Not sure how close that is. But. All right. We have Adam Kelsey standing by. We do on phone or is the phone. It is. All right. Adam Kelsey, good to talk to you. How you doing sir doing? Well. How are you? Thank you. All right. You probably have seen this on Twitter that the president has now endorsed Nancy Pelosi for speaker of the house. Yeah, it's interesting to see him a lend his endorsement is somebody who is so despised by Republicans. But that's obviously the reason I he wants to put Nancy Pelosi in charge because she is a villain. She's somebody that he can play off of when he's running for election in twenty twenty. You see it in an ad across the country. Republicans basically warning their constituents that you don't want another San Francisco liberal in the mold of Nancy Pelosi representing your district. So maybe not surprising to see the president trying to use her as the villain once again. It's just interesting that first thing in the morning. The. Silence popped into his head. It might have been part of the plan all along who knows? Now, we had Democrats in battleground states members of the Senate here anybody who opposed the confirmation of judge Cavanaugh has lost their race to what degree do we think? That's the reason they were in tight races to begin with correct? Yeah. We're we're trying to feel that out over the course of the last couple of weeks and Senator Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota was the first person that we saw to get hit in the polls because vote on the bread cavenaugh hearings. But to see it play out in Missouri. Claire mccaskill was actually pulling pretty well in recent days in Indiana were Joe Donnelly, another sitting member of the Senate again was pulling pretty well in recent days, obviously shows you what an impact it had. And then on the flip side Senator Joe Manchin in West Virginia who voted for the confirmation of break Cavanaugh, he ends up getting reelected one of the most red states in the country, generally speaking across the country things kind of played out the way the polls suggested I mean the tight races with a tight races. Whether that's governorships in. In Florida, South Carolina or North Carolina. I guess some of these are still up in the air say Stacey Abrams has yet to concede there. So the tight races where the tight races. But generally, the polls are much more accurate than they were two years ago. Yeah, we I would agree that that we were somewhat track this year some of the pickups like I mentioned before Missouri Indiana slight surprises, given what we've seen in recent days. But it looks like the house of representatives is gonna come in and of right where we we expected ABC news partner five thirty eight dot com. I had had pegged at around thirty five thirty six seats. We're at twenty eight right now still a few outstanding in California. So it should come in. I write about their. So I haven't seen much as far as west coast numbers are concerned other any surprises anywhere. It's only one thing you could point to and say, well that wasn't entirely expected. I won't point to the west coast, but I will point to Oklahoma the fifth congressional district flipped. It went to the democrat in that race. We had one hundred and eight congressional races that we were watching last night you Oklahoma fingers. National district wasn't even on the list. And that was the one we were scrambling for last night trying to learn a little bit more about the candidate. And again, Oklahoma state usually think of as a very red state Republican governor last night, but Democrats take one seat there is there a good size city in that district or. Yeah, we're we're talking center of the state not so far from Oklahoma City. That's the city with some changing demographics where we're seeing more young people and more diverse population. So in that sense, maybe not so surprising. But like I said we had one hundred and eight different districts across the country that we thought would be more competitive than that one that one really sneaked up on us. So as looking ahead. In this case to Washington and the president and to what degree he might work to get along. Well with a democratic house mean the Pelosi thing obviously is is a ploy. I'm waiting to see what her response to that would day, but the degree to which you think the president would reach out the Democrats will we see Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer on the Senate side make some visits to the White House in the past couple of years. They've had some conversations with the president and we've had a few moments in which it seemed like President Trump was willing to reach across the aisle only to be rebuffed by his own party as far as immigration healthcare. The economy goes some VAT disagreements there, but I think the one issue that they may be able to work on together is infrastructure, and that's something that President Donald Trump campaigned on in two thousand sixteen he hasn't been able to get anything substantial Pat in the interim, I Democrats want to fix the same highways wanna fix the same airports that he does. So would be interesting to see if they can do some negotiating there and patent infrastructure Bill and then to what? Degree will they held him for investigations. I mean, the people out there who will constituents will want impeachment, which isn't going to happen. But as far as. Full speed ahead with investigations investigating the Russian connection, which likely isn't they're going after his taxes. How far do you think they can or should push it? Yeah. Well, we're going to see in two specific committees. I think some form of action house intelligence committee likely to be chaired by California Democrat, Adam Schiff, I'm sure there's documents that they want us appear. There's people that they wanna talk to you that they haven't been able to over the course of the Russian investigation. That's wanna keep an eye on. We've already heard from congressman Elijah Cummings he'd likely to be the chairman of the house oversight committee. He's going to be the one who maybe wants to take a look at the president's taxes and see if there's any funny business going on there. All right. Listen, I appreciate your time. Adam Adam Kelsey, and we'll talk again down the road, some point CNN, great things are happening. You betcha. Eight forty five right now at seven hundred w w story away from politics that hasn't gotten that much. Attention. We go back to Halloween, and there was one story because each Halloween you have these concerns about you know, whatever somebody puts poison in your kids candy, and there was one story in Halloween. About a kid who supposedly got meth poisoning from someone's whose house he went to. And when I first heard it, the BS antenna kind of went up as a, you know, I think that's got something to do with dad. There's only one case out there were indicators ever poisoned supposedly by Halloween candy. And it was a father who poisoned his own son over the the candy pixie sticks straw at the top of its full of sugar. The dad put whatever killed the son like cyanide or something in the in the pixie stick. Well, this one that turns out it was the data again. Gallion ohio. Braille and car well was the five year old tested positive for meth after trick or treating police have arrested his dad Twenty-four-year-old father cambric car while charged him with possession of meth and evidence tampering. Police said, well, we're not definitively saying a little boy ingested the methamphetamine. We're extremely confident. He did not ingest any candy from trick or treat that was tainted earlier. That was the case turns out his parents are both recovering drug. Addicts Brandon's mother said I'm not covering up the truth. The case was suspicious from the start. They said the boy had barely eaten any of his candy only chomped down on some toy vampire teeth when he started shaking and lost control of his limbs. His parents look at he was having a seizure took him to the hospital. They didn't know he had ingested any methamphetamine apparently at that point. According to the mom is said the left side of his face it just gotten droopy, then he fell couldn't move his arm. Didn't know where he was didn't know what he was doing doctors performed the drug test and found the meth in his system at that point. So the boy now is doing fine. He's home. He's back at school not showing any ill effects long term, but dad's going to be off to prison at some point. On the public doesn't have to worry about tainted. Halloween, candy, again, it had nothing to do with that. They say it's safe for kids to dress up go out and grab some sweets. It's going to be fine. So if that was your first instinct as well. Congratulations to you. We were right? It's eight forty eight. Check traffic. Let's go Jason Earhart round, the UCLA traffic.

"Morning news. We are continuing our election coverage this morning less than a week to go six days. Exactly the midterms who will take control of congress. Let's check in with ABC news political correspondent, Adam Kelsey. Good morning. Adam good morning. Thanks for having me. Yeah. What do you see on national level? Can you tell if there's going to be any kind of a wave or maybe just a trickle on either side? Boy, it seems like with the news cycle changing every few days some of these races. Just keep going back and forth. I think our best guess right now is that the Democrats look pretty good in their quest to take back the house of representatives. But then on the flip side Republicans might even expand their advantage. I in the Senate. So if you think things are gridlock in Washington right now, just wait until we have a democratic house in a Republican Senate things could slow down more than ever Adams. Shouldn't they be disappointed, meaning Democrats? It seems like to me. They don't have a what I consider a very good message. It's it's basically that everything that the president does is bad. And and and go on that. I would think if they wanted this big Blue Wave they would have been better in the messaging, but we're hearing there is not going to be much of a wave. Yes. Certainly the backlash to president. Trump was something that really motivated Democrats over the course of the first year of his presidency. But when it comes to getting folks out to the polls, you really need to like, you said have that concrete message in the closing weeks of these campaigns. We've seen Democrats make it about healthcare. I think we're public have responded the best they can which is that they've been trying to protect protections for people with preexisting conditions. So that's been a major issue across the country. But like you said when it comes down to it Democrats are hoping that it's just backlash against President Trump that turns people out next Tuesday. Yeah, you brought it up the number one issue for voters is health care. I'm sure to the chagrin of the president. It's not immigration is it working at all for him trying to change the conversation. Talking about that caravan talking about the fourteenth amendment. Does that help? I it's interesting to see him making that the issue over the course of this past week because those are issues that his base cares about his base was always gonna come to the polls. It was always going to vote for their Republican candidates anyway. So it's surprising late. You said that Republicans may be aren't trying to find some of these crossover issues where they can win over some of the moderate and independent voters. They can rely on the strong read Republicans in every election. No matter what an immigration is. Is that issue that really targets them? Adam before we let you go the mail bombs the synagogue shooting has that had any impact so far and people in the midterms will there there's definitely be gun control conversation going on for the past couple of years. You look at a state like Florida where the parkland shooting was with such major news down there for cer- for so long. They've got a couple of competitive Senate and gubernatorial races, I would expect it to make an impact in states like those. But there are some other states where gun control is not gonna make inroads that Democrats. Maybe hope it does ABC news political correspondent, Adam Kelsey. Thanks again for the time. Thanks, E S and H now apart.
