So this council will focus on ensuring equity for women and girls on diverticular Lee women and girls of color.

"The house, But as November 3rd becomes November 4th the 2020 election is far from over. Please stay with us. All right, let's bring in NPR. White House correspondent Aisha Roscoe now Hey, Aisha. Hello. All right, so we're still seeing all the important battleground states not called yet. What are you hearing from Republicans about their thoughts So far is everyone's just waiting and waiting and possibly looking for tow, waiting for days after this. Well, Republicans are projecting some confidence. You know, obviously, this night has not gone or has gone in a way that that the campaign is happy with s O far. Obviously, we're still waiting for calls in swings in key swing states. But they're looking at. You know the numbers in Florida and Ohio and they feel like they have been able to do well, even though polls were showing, you know, hire a tie or things being closer, right? I mean, the fact that we still don't know what the results are in so many of the battleground states. I mean, can you describe how that is actually good news for the Trump campaign because It's felt like even the president went into tonight, almost sounding like he was managing expectations, saying things about how embarrassing it would be to lose to Biden. So what does the fact that we're all still waiting mean in terms of good news for the Trump campaign? It means that you know, this isn't some blue. This is is not looking like a blue wave at this point. You know, this is not, you know, solidly wrapped up tonight. We knew and had been, you know, saying that it was totally possible that this could go into you know, more days and that everything might not be known tonight. But the fact that things unknown tonight shows that that President Trump You know, even though he did have a narrow path, all you need is one path right? And so far, no path has been ruled out from him from for him, You know, based on a piece calls? Well, let's talk about in particular for big battleground states. I'm talking about Pennsylvania, Wisconsin. Michigan and Arizona. Remind us why, especially in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin in Michigan. We could be looking at a very long wait. What is it? That happens in those particular states? That means that votes are going to take a longer time to get counted? Because they're waiting to count those critical mail in votes and those you know, mail in votes could you know there's a huge partisan split? On DH. There's a thought that you know by then could do much, much better in the mail in votes in those states and creating this sort of you know what they called a red mirage. Where if you count the votes on Election Day, it would look like President Trump had done really well. But then when you bring in the mail in votes that could change the story, and that could change the direction. And so that is. You know why those states air looking differently and why we look like we have to wait right, especially in states like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan. They didn't start counting those male and votes. Until at least election day. Where at least the day before Election Day. I want to ask about the Corona virus because there was so much polling in the days leading up to this election that showed widespread disapproval. Over the way this administration has handled the pandemic. Is it still too early to say that the pandemic ultimately didn't drive away a lot of Trump's support? What would you say? I would say that it's still too early. We still have a ways to go to see how you know what what impact the pandemic actually had on the vote. But what we do see is how deeply partisan this country remains. And how entrenched the political differences are so that you know, even with all that has happened. You know, When you look at Ohio President Trump was up 8% you know A and that hasn't called yet. But if it were to be around that range that's around the rain. She won Ohio and 2016. So with everything that has happened Voters still ended up in in the same place, and so so that sort of thing does bring into question, But I think we have a large country and we still have a ways to go to see the real impact. I'm curious Asia. You've been a political reporter for quite some time now. Did you see any distinct differences with the way President Trump campaigned in 2020? Compared to the way he campaigned in 2016? Or was he essentially running the same race? In many ways he was running the same race. But he was there was a different set of grievances. His politics or his political appeal has always been about grievance. But the grievances that he was talking about in 2020 were Ah, lot of it works sort of his personal grievances. You know, he was upset about the Russia investigation. And, you know, upset about media coverage and upset about, you know, so there was a lot of focus on that said about the way he's been, you know, covered when it comes to the Corona virus, So it was a lot about him. But he was also making the case that he was able to get a lot done before the pandemic and that he could do it again. And that if you you know that he was willing That he had what was needed for the country to try to feel the economy back up again that he would make America great again on DH that so he was making that argument and also still kind of running as an outsider, even though he is president right well, given that he was running in many ways a very similar race to the one he ran in 2016. Did you get the sense that there was any substantive attempt on the Trump campaign's part to expand the president space this time around? There was outreach to black voters to Latino over voters. And I'm sure that they would argue that that that outreach especially to Latino voters has has paid off. You know, so far, you know, they did put out this platinum plan for for Black America where they would, you know, tell us about the war. What was that about what they said that they would have more investment in black businesses that they would, you know, look at things like, you know, making Juneteenth a federal holiday on and that they would, you know, look at policing and things of that nature. But the big part of it was economic that they would try to create. You know millions of jobs for black Americans, and that they would invest more in black owned businesses. And so that was there a pitch too. Black voters. But it was also about, you know, really knocking down Joe Biden and making the argument that he's been around for 47 years that he has not delivered for black people, and therefore he does not deserve your vote. It was really less of an appeal about voting for trap and more of an appeal against Joe Biden. That is NPR's Asia, Roscoe. Thank you. Thank you. Let's go back to NPR.

"The RNC has been relocated twice as President Trump attempted to hold as normal convention as possible during the pandemic. Today, he visited the original host city Charlotte, North Carolina, where a few 100 Republican delegates gathered to make his nomination for a second term. Official. We didn't do this for any other reason other than respect for the state of North Carolina, because we said we wanted to hold our convention in North Carolina, and I think you're gonna remember that, frankly, on November 3rd NPR. White House reporter Aisha Roscoe is going to be covering the convention all this week. Hey there, Asia Hello. You know, I want to start here. The president's campaign has been criticizing Democrats for their convention last week, saying they painted this very grim picture of America and that this week Republicans will have a more positive message. Is that what we heard from the president today? Not really. It was not the uplifting, optimistic message that the campaign promise. Trump's remarks today really felt like a rally with Trump talking mostly off the cuff for nearly an hour and really going into a lot of grievances. He was complaining about mail in voting, continuing to say a lot of things about that method of voting. That is not true. Andi was already creek critiquing the media coverage of the convention, saying its not getting enough attention on TV. Hey, did talk about wanting to make sure that he visited North Carolina and person even though they couldn't have their really big gathering there. He tried to draw a distinction between him and biting on that. Because Biden didn't travel to Milwaukee, where the Democratic convention was supposed to be hailed. But this speech today is really just one of several that Trump will be making this week and his form looks acceptance speech will be on Thursday, and that will likely be much more script. It was he talking about the Corona virus about the pandemic, because, as we've already said, but has overshadowed this convention, it overshadowed the Democrats last week, the whole campaign. What's he having to say about that? He's arguing that much of the country is doing well in the economy is rapidly recovering. There are really questions about how fast the economy will improve, and currently there are still millions out of work and struggling right now. But Trump repeated some of his accusations today that there are Democratic lawmakers who are intentionally holding back their economy. Here's more of what he had to say. On November for you know these Democrat governors they love shut down until after the elections, though, because they want to make our numbers look as bad as possible. There is no evidence for that. But Trump has continued to personalize the corona virus response and make it all about what he perceives is others doing to him. He's also seized on a comment from Joe Biden. That he would that Biden would shut down the economy if health officials advise him to do so.

We have two bits of news now about the Corona virus. The first is from Hong Kong, where researchers have documented a case of re infection with the virus, and we also have more on the latest therapy for the disease that is blood plasma from people who have recovered. Joining us to talk about this is NPR science correspondent Richard Harris. Hi, Richard. Sorry first, Let's talk about this patient who has been infected twice. What is the story there? Well, the case involves a 33 year old man who got sick with covert 19 back in March. He had a sore throat fever, headache and cough lasted three days, and he tested positive for the Corona virus. How long after his symptoms resolved. He took a trip to Europe. When you return to Hong Kong in July, he was tested at the airport and they found he was infected again. Scientists at the University of Hong Kong analyze the virus and determined that this second infection had been caused by a different strain of the virus. Okay, so this was not a recurrence of his original infection, but a second infection. What are the broader implications of that? Yeah, it is a little unsettling to think that an infection doesn't protect you indefinitely from a second infection, But that's actually not that surprising. One way to look at this is that his immune system was primed and ready toward off a second infection in this case and had no symptoms the second time around, which is a sign that the immune system did what it was supposed to do. And remember, this is a single case report. So we have no idea if this was a fluke, or if it's something we should expect to see more of in the future. Okay, Somethingto watch there. Let's also talk about the blood product that the FDA has just authorized to treat covert 19 Tell us more about this plasma treatment. Well. People who have recently had covered 19 condone it. Blood plasma, which includes antibodies that target the corona virus, Tens of thousands of people have been given this material called convalescent plasma as an experimental treatment..

"From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish. And I'm Ari Shapiro. President Trump traveled to Texas today to keep making his case for a barrier on the southern border. His trip comes with Republicans and Democrats no closer to an agreement to end the partial government shutdown now in its twentieth day, and it's affected. Our even being felt at sixteen hundred Pennsylvania Avenue. Thank you for calling the Whitehouse comment line due to the lack of appropriations funding from congress federal government shutdown. That's the message you get if you call the White House switchboard with no end in sight federal workers will officially miss their first paycheck on Friday and Trump is warning Democrats to negotiate with him or he will try to build the barrier without Congress's approval. NPR's Aisha Roscoe covers the White House and is here in the studio with us. Hi, Asia, I'm tempted to ask what the state of play is on negotiations. But are there even is happening at this point? They're happy some negotiations, but things are really where they have been for the past few days or maybe even. Where they've been since the start of the shutdown. Basically, there seems to be no real movement towards some type of compromise right now. Vice President Mike Pence talked to reporters today, and he said at this point the White House is not open to a big deal that would exchange some concessions on the so-called dreamers for money for a wall or barrier. And he also shot down the Democrats plans to open parts of the government while lawmakers continue to debate how to handle border security pin said the White House will not agree to sign off on any bills and kind of a piecemeal fashion. There was little burst of activity with for publican Senator Lindsey Graham, he was trying to put together a bipartisan compromise and Graham was in some talks with leadership today, but those talks quickly fell apart. And now Graham is urging Trump to use his emergency powers to build. The wall 'em with that the Senate is adjourned for the week. So barring something extraorde. Inari happening. This shutdown is going to drag into next week and on Saturday will be the longest shutdown ever. And President Trump took his message to the border today to mcallen, Texas. What did he say there what he was really trying to drive home? This idea that there is a crisis at the border and that a barrier is necessary to deal with it. He had a round table where he had family members who had loved ones killed by someone in the country illegally talking, and he really pushed back against the Democrats arguments that this is manufactured emergency. What is manufactured is the use of the word manufactured, it's manufactured by them every single of the negatives. But then not winning because it's it's common sense. So at his roundtable, Trump had these firearms and bags of what looked like drugs and money. They were on display in front of him. I guess this was seemingly to represent the contraband that's being seized at the border. But it's worth noting that out that government figures show that most of the heroin that comes across the border into the US actually comes through legal ports of entry and not through parts of the border without barriers just in our last minute. What about the possibility of declaring a national emergency and building the wall that way without congressional support. So we don't really have a timeline on when that decision will be made. But it's still on the table and Trump is making clear that this is the path he intends to take if he can't cut a deal with congress. It would cause his legal and political firestorm. But Trump seems kind of you this or may seem to view this as a way for him to agree to reopen the government, and then he could still. Tell his base that we're fighting for this wall. He actually said it will be surprising if he doesn't if he doesn't declare a national emergency. If there's no compromise NPR's Aisha Roscoe. Thanks. Thank you. This is the week that many government workers will miss their first paycheck, and as the shutdown has gone on. We've been hearing from a lot of them who say they are living paycheck to paycheck for some the promise of back pay doesn't solve the problem of paying your phone Bill or your mortgage or putting dinner on the table for your family today. We wanted to better understand why so many people live paycheck to paycheck in America. So we've called on at least gold of the Economic Policy Institute. She studies wages, poverty and inequality. Welcome to the program. Thank you so much. So for economists what's the definition of living paycheck to paycheck? It's a great question. I would say there's not a uniform understanding among economists. But one thing I would say is that there's a Federal Reserve study that asked families whether or not they could cover an unexpected expense of four hundred dollars. So if all of a sudden, you had to pay four hundred dollars would you have enough money to be able to cover that and four in ten adults if faced with an unexpected expense of four hundred dollars for either not able to cover it or had cover it by selling something or borrowing money such as putting it on a credit card. So I think the idea that they don't have enough money to cover that that is pretty widespread that suggests about forty percent of Americans have that problem, we've been hearing from a lot of federal workers who are worried about missing a paycheck, and you know, some of these people have good jobs fulltime work, long term employment. Can you be middle class or even wealthy and still live paycheck to paycheck? Yes. Absolutely. We know it costs a lot to get by across this country. When you figuring things like housing costs food medical care, maybe childcare transportation, an everyday there are families that go without. But if you don't have that paycheck that shock it could be a paycheck. It could be a health shock could be a large car repair. Any of those things can lead to total financial destabilization for many workers. In their families. And we're not just talking about poor families. These are middle class families that could be destabilized by not having that paycheck. But you have the president adding the strength of the US economy, right? The unemployment rate has been a historic low. Why are so many people still running out of money every month? Well, it's really harder to save the economy today because most workers haven't seen significant increases in their pay to be able to increase their standard of living giving them any sort of cushion to save. So yes, it's true. We have seen the economy improve. And the statistics that I said it before those are better than they were at the depths of the great recession, then some more people have jobs, and that's all great more people returned to labor force, but we have seen stagnation and pay. We have seen that workers. They need both parents to support a family, right? That those are longer term trends because we have seen stagnation and worker pay and in family incomes, so without additional resources to draw on families often to have to resort to sub optimal solution such as payday lending or going without recommended. Medical treatment or leaving school that a degree but racking up lots of debt. So these are lots of problems that middle class families face today. What's interesting about this is here, we are all these years after the economic meltdown and that conversation about people needing to save and create a financial cushion. But you're saying it's actually harder to do that. Even if more Americans wanted to or tried. Yes. Absolutely. Because people's pay is just barely enough to make ends meet and for many people, it's not enough to make ends meet. And so being able to afford childcare there's been a lot information about you know, how expensive it is for many families. So that one expense can really make or break. What it takes, you know, put food on the table. So I think that there are a lot of things that are happening to families today. They're being stretched incredibly thin and losing this paycheck for these federal workers. Not just the federal workers. Also, the federal contractors federal contractors that are out of work because the partial government shutdown won't be getting that back pay. So it's not even a question of putting off getting that money. It's a question of. Never getting it in the first place. At least gold is a senior economist with the Economic Policy Institute..
