"As far as I can tell. They sort of made Cem Cem big noises about things like user fees, which I think means told or public private partnerships, which I think also means told on people who use roads, bridges, airports, that kind of thing. The Democratic Party is not crazy about about polls for infrastructure projects. They think that's like regressive way. Toe finance these things, um, regressive, meaning it would impact floor income people more than than higher income folks. They would rather raise taxes on corporations and the wealthy. We know where the GOP draws the line. Do we know where President Biden draws the line? Is he willing to compromise to a point? Yeah, well, you know the president. I think I think all sides recognize the president has kind of a strategy here that nobody's really talking about. Everybody knows is on the table where he could Could reach some sort of a smaller deal with Republican on the infrastructure piece of his of his proposals and passed something on the order of maybe a trillion dollars. That doesn't that maybe doesn't even involve tax. Think maybe it's all of deficits funded. Um, so then he would have bipartisan accomplishment to brag about. On Ben. Later in the year, he would get together with Democrats and past whatever else they could through a process called reconciliation, which which allows them to pass things through the Senate without any Republican votes and without a filibuster. They're limited in what they can pass. Using reconciliation That has to be has to change spending levels. Federal spending levels, basically or change tax rate to get tickets to reconciliation, But but I think he could get a lot of stuff a lot of additional spending through through Congress, using reconciliation after Makes a deal with Republicans on infrastructure and we are talking to Alex Wayne. Alex is the White House editor for Bloomberg News. And Alex. We were just talking about this earlier in the show with our Daybreak Asia host president by the meeting with South Korea's leader next week. And from the White House perspective. Why is this important? What do you think the White House is going to accomplish here? Yeah, I think there's a signal the White House is sending here and that the president's first two in person meetings. With foreign leaders will be with the prime minister of Japan on both Koreas. Later, he's trying to develop a new strategy a new regional strategy to confront North Korea. Of course. His predecessor, Donald Trump, tried to reach a nuclear deal with North Korea and a pair and I think three summits with Kim Jong on. He wasn't successful. North Korea's continued to build nuclear weapons and build its arsenal. Um this administration I don't think has arrived at a at a at a out of plan to confront Him song on and the North Korean nuclear threat. And so that's what that's what these meetings are about. With, with, with the leaders of Japan and South Korea, developing a regional strategy to deal with Alex Before I let you go. I just want to ask you a little bit more about the future of the Republican Party. We saw representative list Cheney ousted from the leadership of the House Republican Party, replaced by a least a phonic. My question for you is where this may go from here We've We've seen some rumblings from former Republican officials trying to start maybe a third party talking about a new mandate for a new conservative party. Is that getting any traction Does that have legs? Is that making any waves within the traditional Republican Party? I have to admit, I am I'm a little surprised at how at how strongly the Republican Party is lashing itself to former President Donald Trump. Um, he remains a very influential people, person and Republican politics, but he's enormously unpopular among most Americans after his lies about the election outcome in 2020. And his incitement of the riot at the Capitol in January six. I really question whether it Zounds politics for for the Republican Party to tie it's often it's the foreign president like this. Liz Cheney was deposed from her job because she challenged the former president. She blamed him for the riot. Publicly, she said publicly that his claims about the election were lies. And she was punished for that. Elise Stefanik. The person who has replaced her is a strong trump supporter. She's she's actually more of a moderate Republican on policy issues than Cheney is, but But really that the test here in this leadership this leadership debate was whether you're an ally of the former president Annalise Stepanek is because Chinese not and so it's Tiffany got the job. I know, but that sends a message to voters. You know that the Republican Party at least here and you know, here in Washington is still the party of Donald Trump on Di Don't know How. How Well that message. How well that That time of the former president's going to serve them in the 2022 men Church. Okay, we're gonna watch it with you, Alex. Thank you so much for taking the time. Thanks. White House editor Alex Wayne. And that is what is going on in the nation's capital. Now for more of our political news coverage Tune into balance of power with David Westin weekdays at noon Wall Street time on Bloomberg Radio. I maybe Morris, this is remember John.

"Now, politics policy power and law continues with MS Amy Morris. Thank you, Greg. And we are live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studio, you know, the idea that China might don't more than a trillion dollars in US treasuries to retaliate against the Trump administration. Tariffs is they dismissed this as improbable the nuclear option, but you know, it might have to happen anyway, not as retaliation. But just so China can protect its own currency. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is hoping that the president strategy produces a win. Ultimately, nobody went to trade war unless there is an agreement at the end. After which tariffs go away. Okay. So Bloomberg news White House team leader, Alex Wayne joining us now from our Bloomberg ninety nine one studios here in Washington DC, and it sounds almost like Senator McConnell in that sound bite. At least I was a little unsure is always there. Yeah. Right. So I'm wondering if the president may be losing any support for this tactic or the strategy among the GOP, everybody lockstep. I mean, I don't I don't think he ever had you ever completely had support from the GOP. I trade strategy. It's it's it's not something he's ever gone to congress to to get vote on just something. He's done. He's embarked on this trade war with China without without consulting with congress dot getting an impassive thing without their sign off. And he can do that as the president. So now, it's really the onus is on the GOP. They're back him or not. And for the most part. They are. Okay. So at this point, the the US and China is far as we know we're not talking at least nine making a talks at a stalemate. So, but we're still seeing. The back and forth continuing on on Twitter. Tariff threats brings us up to speed on where things stand now. So the the the new US tariffs are in place as of last Friday, they they raise tariffs on two hundred billion worth worth of Chinese goods from ten percent to twenty five percent. The Chinese have set out the products, they'll they'll retaliate against though, their impose new tariffs on US products. Non expert on on that list of products. But I believe it is pretty narrowly targeted at things that will cause the president political pain like cultural exports from the midwest. Hence guys like Chuck Grassley of Iowa raising a lot of alarms at the White House about the escalating trade war. The next step is in June. I think it's actually June one Bill later, the the US prepared according to the president to slap tariffs on everything else. China experts in states, and that would include stuff that is not really yet causing pain for American consumers. We would start applying tariffs to phones, for example, exported from from China unless unless apple get some sort of a waiver from the from that that transhipped tariffs that's causing a lot of concern among business lobbyists in Washington. Among a lot of Republicans, and even among some administration officials Steve Mnuchin, we believe is not a big fan of this. Larry cudlow, probably not too excited about tariffing, everything that China experts the US, oh, but the president has dismissed a lot of these concerns as this being just a squabble among friends, he called it a little squabble among friends that she trade the trade war being dismissed. Of it. Or is he trying to settle everybody down? Like, I don't want you to get in the president's head. You can't do that. But what that comment half? Well, he's he's a tariff, man. He's told us that. So, you know, it's Sean, Sean, John and had a smart story yesterday about about whether tariffs are are a tool for the president to get a deal out of China or whether tariffs are really the president's goal. He the president himself has has expressed a lot of ambivalence about whether there's even a trade deal with China. And he said that if we just stay in a situation where we're we're applying tariffs Todd their exports. He's he's pretty fine with that. So I don't know that he's trying to calm market so much as to telegraph to the American people to financial markets that the current state of play might be the permanent state of play. We're going to talk a little bit more about the Russian investigation. And some of the Macintoshes going on Capitol Hill that's coming up. But before we get there. I wanna talk to you about the tweet. Tweets because right now, we're not seeing a whole lot of tweets about Russia. The president they've shifted over to China. What's that tell you? I got to put a byline on that story. Russia tweets have for have since the beginning of Trump's administration outnumbered trade related tweets by by a lot. And that's that's probably no surprise to many people. Just in the last couple of weeks, though, China and trade tweets have started out pace. Russia. Tweet says the as the trade war has has glided. But I I don't really expect that to last. I think. I think probably I think Russia could take the lead again, or we might even see more tweets about Iran, or or whatever. Whatever subject is hot at the moment. Okay. Thank you. Alex. Alex, Wayne, the White House team leader for Bloomberg news following the tweets and following everything that's going on with the trade and White House in general just ahead on Bloomberg politics policy power in law. It looks like President Trump's son. Here's come simply, it's the sun will be testifying on Capitol Hill. After all we're going to find out how at first we check the latest world and national headlines. Let's go to Bloomberg's prominent EMMY, thank you the status of the trouble. Boeing seven thirty-seven max is being discussed before the house transportation subcommittee today with acting Federal Aviation administrator. Daniel L will testifying in the US the seven three seven max will return to service only when the FAA's analysis of the facts and technical data indicate that it's safe to do. So today's hearing comes amid new reports on a meeting between bullying officials. And airline pilots shortly after the first deadly crash involving the plane audio recordings reveal pilots asked Boeing to take action to prevent another accident. Boeing executives resisted rounding the planes at that time, Senator Lindsey Graham. The chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee says he's introducing legislation to crack down on a flood of immigrants from Central America being apprehended at the southern border Senator Graham called the current situation on the border horrible and said his legislation would slow the flow of people to the southern border solution will stop the problem. And I'm willing to work with Democrats to do some things they wanna do. But the status quo must stop ground says his legislation would stop asylum applications at the border send unaccompanied minors back quicker allow for families to be detained longer.

"The president's wrath, plus Democrats and Republicans strategists described their parties path to victory in twenty twenty. But first the latest round of US China trade tots wrapped up in Beijing. This week Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin called them productive meeting. Spirits. Become shock to Washington. We go. Okay. That's a little bit hard to hear. But what he was saying is that they're going to continue them in DC, and they wanna make some substantial progress. Bloomberg news White House editor Alex Wayne joining us now in our Bloomberg ninety nine one studio here in Washington DC of I just want to start off with some of the basics a little thirty thousand foot view here. How transparent are they talked. We tear oh transparent up to. Well. That kills my next question. We don't we don't really get a good idea of where they are finding agreement and where they are fine. They're they're not this has been going on for a few months. Now, the US delegation goes to Beijing for a few days, and they say they had very productive talks the Chinese come to Washington for few days, and they save had very productive talks. And yet there's no deal. We're still in the middle of a trade war. We don't know what what the roadblocks are. We don't know what they've agreed to. We don't know what is left to be agreed to we do know that from from Bloomberg reporting that the White House is hoping to have hosted a summit with she possibly mar-a-lago like a month ago to to put the finishing touches a trade deal on it didn't happen at delayed. So so this week. There was a change though. Mick Mulvaney, said Monday and LA Milkin conference that that the the. The the US might walk away from the talks if a deal isn't wrapped up pretty soon. Actually, I was going to ask you about that. I wonder if that undermines the talks as they're going on. I don't know it's you know, without knowing what is left being ago. She hated it's hard to know, whether the White House is trying to prod the Chinese into, you know, wrapping up. What few details remain or whether they're so hopelessly at loggerheads that the White House is genuinely prepared to give up. I mean, Trump has said famously tariffs man, he presumably is happy to remain in a trade war for the indefinite future. And just keep the the I think it's twenty five percent tariffs now on on on Chinese imports. Okay. So while we don't really know where they are finding agreement and where they're really at loggerheads. We do know that there are boxes to be checked. There are parameters that they have to meet to be able to come to an agreement. We know what they are. I mean, there's there's some things the US is looking for some of them easier than others. The easy stuff is they'd like the Chinese to buy more American products, especially agricultural products. You know, there's there's some suspicion that the president mainly wants the Chinese to buy more, soybeans, etc. In order to boost his reelection chances in twenty twenty because that's where that's where his his his support is strongest in the in the midwest, the cultural heartland of the US. The more difficult things that the US would like the Chinese to do is to to stop what the US says is of American companies intellectual property. And as far as we can tell again zero transparency, but as far as we can tell that issue hasn't really been addressed at all these talks. Okay. So let's talk about what happens when they come to DC. I'm going to assume that they're still closed door meetings. No, transparency more of the same just on the east coast yet. There's usually a photo spray. The a photo op, I guess you'd call it where the the the the negotiators get together. And report brought in it take some photos, the reporters shouting questions. Adam somebody like Steve Mnuchin says the talks are very productive having everybody who leaves the room see where I'm going with. This is what is it that the reporters who are covering this who are trying to put this all together and make it make sense to the American people. What is it? You're looking for that will give you some sort of clue as to how they're going, but their third in the cards close to the vet their documents being created from these talks. We know that there are they've got like a draft trade deal that is going balancing back and forth between the US and the Chinese. It'd be great to see some of that language to see to see something on paper. That is being kept very close by both sides. And if she's in being shows up at mar a Lago will know there must be a deal. Yeah. I mean, eventually if they're if they make a deal, they'll presumably tell the the American public what it is. And it'll be maybe it'll even be presented to congress as as a as Nashville trade deal. I don't think they having seen what happened to brach Obama when he after negotiated the the trans-pacific trade deal. I don't think they're inclined to do something that requires a Senate approval. It seems to me that there is a deadline, but it is not an unflinchingly rigid. Flex keeps keeps changing it's like, you know, at one point it was the woman, you know, tobacco even further. There was a deadline of March one at which point if there wasn't a deal on the US was supposed to like double its tariffs on Chinese imports Trump lead that let that one slide because he he determined that that they were making progresses says so the deadlines keep coming and going, and we we don't see any sign of a real deal.

"Think sounds good to to to try to impress voters. Minute here. So we can expect the Democrats to make some political hay out of this once again, right? Of course, of course, there are they already are they're, you know, they're they are accusing this administration of cutting taxes for people at the expense of lower income, folks. And meantime, they are going to continue to hammer healthcare despite the president's comments that he's going to make the Republican party the party of health. Yeah. Well, that's just another sort of example of Trump tossing out things that he thinks sounds good whether or not they're actually underway in the White House or in congress. There is no Republican healthcare plan. There is no plan in the White House or among Republicans in congress to protect people with preexisting conditions.

"Aiding other individuals in this report, we do know, according to attorney general William bar that he could submit a summary of this report to congress as soon as this weekend. But Alex Wayne my question to Jackson Patrick now. Alex Wade Whitehouse editor of Bloomberg news. He just said the issue of impeachment. There could be details in this report. And I don't want to speculate. But I do want to foreshadow the contours of this debate are being drawn. Now the issue of impeachment not off the table, right? There were we're already hearing as we mentioned the Schumer and Pelosi statements saying they want all the information the backing information that went into this report because to be honest right now, I don't even think we have a page number of how long this report is there could be basically a huge appendix to this that went in to this and was involved in the investigation. This is simply an explanation of not process. Cuting anyone else? But there's a lot of information that lawmakers still want to to receive and also to make public. I mean, this is clearly news that the White House is going to describe as a huge vindication for the president. But we don't know necessarily anything about the possibility of impeachment or anything else that plays into it. Now, we're in the stages of a presidential campaign. Of course, go. In addition to the possibility of impeachment. There is still a wide ranging investigation going on by the southern district of New York and Manhattan into the the Trump organization and possible criminal behavior by people associated with that with that company that could yet entangle the president or members of his family. So while they are apparently safe from Bob Muller and DOJ headquarters here in Washington. There's there's another investigation that they start to worry about. And then investigation means that you can't you can't part and their pardons. Right. A believe it when that's a federal investigation. Trump could pardon them for that. It's that then you do that that does raise yet another investigation. I'd I'd forgotten about the New York state attorney general is is doing some some probes of of of her own into particularly I think the Trump Trump organization's relationship with Deutsche Bank. And yes, those if she brings state charges, I think it's a she policies if I'm screwed that up if she brings charges those we don't think could be pardoned by the president. But I, you know, I think that might be an issue. I would rise to the sprinkler. All right. I want to reset. But I I wanna get a we're going to be have continuing coverage news as it's happening. The special counsel has concluded their investigation. They have submitted it to the attorney general William bar. The attorney general has said that he is going to have a years. Notified congress that he's received the report he could submit a summary of this report as soon as this weekend, two members of the Senate and House Judiciary committees. And we also learning within the last half hour that special counsel is not recommending nor is the special counsel dating. Any other additional diamonds that are coming? Let's I got a reset from my colleague Martin Takara Martin. Well, thanks, Kevin before he departed the White House today for his mar-a-lago resort. The president was asked about the great expectation. The report would come out soon. No collusion. There was no obstruction. Everybody knows it. And he had this to say about Democrats separate oversight negotiate investigations, the continuation.

Honestly, I think this is about the president appearing on the world stage with Kim Jong on they make some progress on the margins toward improving the relationship between the US and North Korea. But there are still big misunderstandings. Really between the two sides on on even what nuclear disarmament means to the US denuclearization means the North Koreans get rid of all the nuclear weapons not they publicly declare to the world what they had. And they they agree to verification that this stuff has been destroyed. The North Koreans seem to think it means. Something else. So there hasn't been really any movement toward trying to get the two sides to agree in some of the lower level negotiations to set up this summit. Yeah. No, eight months after the first summit. They still haven't agreed to basics like what is denuclearization. Look like, so no, there's there's not been a lot of groundwork laid for the summit that's only been about two weeks since three weeks since Trump announced he would go to Hanoi for for this meeting, and I would not expect very much to result. Because even in the run-up to this meeting with the president himself says said he's in no rush whatsoever to reach a final deal with Kim. So I mean other than you know, getting their pictures taken or whatnot. What are we expecting to come out of this? I think the US is pretty satisfied with Kim just laying off the sabre-rattling. He's not testing missiles, he's not firing missiles over Japan. He's not testing nuclear weapons anymore. That's kind of a win from from the US perspective. Because it did look like we are on course, for a war with North Korea even into to Trump's first term, nobody should forget, the the fire and fury stuff and the little rocket man remarks as his UN speech. So I think it's I think it's a win for Trump and for the US that tensions have subsided. But actually achieving denuclearize North Korea. Looks like something that is far off in the distant future. At the same time, though is the president under any pressure to come up with something more substantial than what he got from the first summit in Singapore with leader Kim, where they got that one and a half page document that they both signed that to the minds of many observers didn't really amounts a whole lot. Yeah. You know, I don't I don't think there is much pressure. You know, what the president was not under pressure to meet with Trump again with Kent with Cam again. And so I don't think there's much pressure to to deliver any specific outcome from this meeting now that it's about a now that's going to happen. It's it's you know, it's he's in he's sort of in an enviable position. We the US is maintaining pretty severe sanctions on North Korea. The Chinese and the Russians may be helping the North Koreans cheat those sanctions to keep their economy afloat, but we can say that we were holding them account holding them to account for their nuclear program, and they're no longer threatening us. And that's that's a win for the president. And at the same time. You know, he's the president has gotten input from people the likes of which are South Korea's president, the prime minister of Japan. They want to see certain things at least discussed at this summit. Could anything come in that regard? I don't know Kim has done a couple of he's made a couple of symbolic gestures returning. Some US capped is turning a small number of US remains in the Korean war. Maybe he shows up with some abducted Japanese citizens or at least records of their existence because the prime minister Japan has pressured Donald Trump to try to resolve that issue between them. But I don't think South Korea, for example. I was going to get a peace treaty. Which is what what I believe the South Korean government would really like to see results from all this. What will you be looking for for our biggest question is why are you having this? Meaning what what what do you want out of it personally that the White House hasn't really explained? What the what outcomes they expect to get from this? Meaning and the president hasn't said either it's just kind of like he's going to meet his good friend, Kim Jong UN. I it's it's just clear why this meaning is even happening in what the president expects from those those would be my top questions. And then we'll be looking forward to seeing forget any that clarity, Alex, Wayne. Thank you very much. Thank you. That's Bloomberg White House team leader, Alex Wayne, and that is what's happening in the nation's capital. I'm Nathan Hager.

"All right. Thank you, Greg. And we are live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studio, and we are taking a closer look at. Sanctions sanctions that the US has now lifted on three firms these three firms are tied to Russian tycoon Oleg, Derek pasta treasury lifting the sanctions on the companies, but dare pasta himself is supposed to be under the sanction he'll remain under the sanctions his property will remain blocked, and Peter we are bringing in Bloomberg White House team leader, Alex Wayne to talk with us a little bit about how all of this is going to fit not just with treasury and not just with the sanctions. But also with the Muller investigation. Yeah. That's right. Amy, and this is controversial move because the treasury department has lifted the sanctions on the company's not on this oligarch himself, but does lifting the sanctions on the company on the company's help him out indirectly. And for more on that. Let's bring in our White House team leader, Alex, Wayne, so Alex. Yes. So treasury announced it was ending these sanctions yesterday. This wasn't unexpected. They have of course, this since December Chuck Schumer tried to block it and the Senate. He he arranged a vote to to I guess sort of interfere with disapprove of treasury lifting sanctions on these companies failed narrowly, but it failed. So treasury was able to move forward. It it it costs der pasta some money, but rest assured, he is still very much a billionaire the other side of that as you were saying that the congressional Democrats their argument is that he's divestiture. And I'm using little everybody quotes there that there that's a sham because he just handed over to his buddies to the Kremlin. And he's not really disgusted in the way that the sanctions would have him be. It's funny to the to the shareholders to the remaining shareholders. And and plus in Russo R, Derek pastas, ex wife and her father. Also as part of this deal treasury required. Ian, plus two treasury required. Those two people to. Give their shares to trustees American appointed trustees. In order to try to ensure that Derek pasta can't exert control the company through his loss. Let's look at the treasury's arguments for doing all this worthy. Sanctions hurting, the global aluminum market in particular in conjunction with some of the tariffs that are on imported aluminum. No question. And that's that was the point that sort of one the day policy-wise the sanctions punish therapa a little bit. But they really did did I guess greater harm to the global aluminum market to workers at at these aluminum, not just resolve. But at aluminum finishing companies around Europe, it just it just didn't turn out to be that great a policy. It. Didn't it didn't really further American goals. Very well, and it caused a lot of pain to a lot of people other than this this one wealthy Russian. So let's pick it apart a little bit. Then is does that mean that in this case he was too big to sanction? I mean, what sort of message definitely that question. You know, that this was Roussell is one of the largest companies that that that treasury ever tried to to sanction like this. And it it backfired. So it does raise the question. I think whether there's a limit to US sanctions as a as a tool foreign policy. I am trying to find a quote for aluminum here on the Bloomberg terminal. I got gold, but I assume that from reading our story this morning prices are down. That's all I know. But does it send a message then to other not just oligarchs, but people who have really those sorts of investments in those sorts of companies that big much of that much of a stakeholder. Or is that not even the intent? Yeah. I mean, I think if you if you engage in criminal or special suspicious behavior in the world, I think you should still be concerned that treasure is gonna come after you or the US government is going to come after you. I don't think. This this hurt their pastas pocketbook. No question. But. Yeah. You know, it's probably the US is going to be on is not going to be able to crush you. I mean, they're they're plenty people around the world who operate under US sanctions and do just fine. Thank you very much. Lots of rich people under US sanctions. And they're they're doing just fine around the world. Is there any concern that the president might have intervened here because scratching my head? What you can't see them radio. He's kind of said nice things about flat. Amir putin. Certainly a lot of hinting of that by Democrats. But no, we don't have evidence that Trump commanded Steve Mnuchin to lift these sanctions Trump didn't really need to Mnuchin was under a lot of pressure from from the aluminum market, and and and interests in that world to to to take the step, and it looks like companies are also stepping up agreeing today's transparency measures there and the story on the Bloomberg terminal. Calling it unprecedented transparency into their operations taking extensive ongoing auditing certification and reporting requirements, so. I the the the US seems to have gotten very involved in the plus Roussell business now, I suppose that's a positive. All right. Alex, Wayne, Bloomberg White House team leader is always a pleasure. Thank you for bringing us up to speed on this story coming up on Bloomberg politics, policy, power and law, the White House dropping consideration for judicial nominees affiliated with Democrats are blue states previously put forward by former President Obama, I we check the latest world and national headlines.

"A big indictment against stone. Who is now the sixth person in Trump's orbit that. The Muller has charged long story short. It is yet again a busy busy news day. And here to help us dissect it is Josh barrow, host of KCRW's left, right and center and business columnist for New York magazine. Josh, hey, Steve. How are you? I'm well. Happy friday. We're also joined by Alex Wayne White House editor over a Bloomberg. Hello to you, Alex. How you doing? I'm well again Friday, it seems like we get a lot of big news on Friday these days. So let's start Josh with the government shutdown deal. What what does this include? What are we seeing here? It is a complete fold from the president. What is what they will do is they will reopen the government for three weeks. And there is no new money for his wall and contrary to what he's been saying throughout this entire process that he will not sign a funding Bill that does not provide money for the wall. And I think what happened was the president. Somehow got this idea in his head from his son-in-law, Jared Kushner that by offering some temporary protections for people who had been covered by the DACA program. That's the program that protects people who came to the United States has an authorized immigrants when they were children some protections for for other immigrants who previously had protection in the US if you package that and some new restrictions on asylum with money for the wall that you'd get a whole bunch of Democrats would come over and vote for there was never any indication that there was any substantial interest in that from Democrats, and it really took this vote that happened on Thursday. We're only one democratic Senator the conservative democrat Joe Manchin from West Virginia crossed party lines to vote for the president's proposal on that that that Kushner had nothing up his sleeve that there was nothing that the Democrats were going to get on board with on this. So it was basically he was going to be stuck with a shut down as long as he was unwilling to sign a Bill that didn't fund the wall his poll numbers have been significantly deteriorating. And as the shutdown becomes more acute in. There are more direct effects on government services, including what we saw today with the air. Traffic control showed up slow down along the east coast. He was going to have to fold sooner or later, and it seems that he has finally picked sooner Alex. Let's talk about what else has changed because I know Trump wanted to make a deal, but he also could have signed this a month ago or longer right back before Christmas. Yeah. I mean, basically, we got we gotta we got got a CR that in February fifteenth instead of February eighth that was the deal that was on the table back before Christmas instead of thirty five day shutdown in between those dates, I it's hard to make much sense of this. Do you think the Roger stone arrests had anything to do with that something that we'll get to in a moment, something they change the topic a little bit I wouldn't draw direct line between that but this president hasn't been known to try to change headlines sometimes so it's not impossible that that he wanted to you wanna tear redirected attention to an issue other than stone. There are rumblings in Washington today that now the state of the union will go on on Tuesday. Josh what's that gonna be like, well, I wonder how prepared the president is for it. I mean, normally there's weeks and weeks of planning that go into what's going to be discussed in a state of the union. The president's remarks today in which the the news you had to deliver was fairly short that he had agreed that they would reopen the government and that the house and Senate are supposed avocado. Silence committee. That's supposed to try to come up with some bipartisan agreement about border security funding over the next three weeks. He instead Ronald on for a long time about all the reasons that he thinks is so important, and what materials the wall, she made of and how the wall should be see-through in certain places because that's important for security and these like bizarre rambling tales he tells about specifics of human trafficking and claims about women being bound up with duct tape at the border and all of these things. So I I suspect you would see a lot of content like that in a state of the union address, the president could use it as sort of a pitch for, you know, please please congress send me money for my wall. But it's something that we've all heard over and over duct tape thing Josh twice in his speech today in the rose garden, and it's the thing. That's that's been a feature over and over reporters who were there at the White House where we're saying that there was in the teleprompter at had been scrolling, and it just stopped when he got to that point. And there were brackets around the just said discuss human trafficking. This is this is a yarn that the president likes to tell. So I think you know, I think we'd be likely to see a lot more of this. If there is in fact, a state of the union address, he was certainly knitting a lot today in the rose garden. I wanna play a clip of tape from the very end of the president's speech where he says that we have no choice, but to build this wall or steel barrier, if we don't get a fair deal from congress. The government will either shut down on February fifteenth again or I will use the powers afforded to me under the laws and.

Stay twenty six at the partially US government shutdown safe to say a lot of government workers are saying stop dragging this out because we'd like to get back to work no signs from the president nor congress to end this shutdown. So now what Alex Wayne is White House editor at Bloomberg news. He drives us on the phone from our bureau in the nation's capital, Alex, Jason I've been in the break kind of talking about some of the things that we've been reading about this government shutdown and kind of what's next and where we go from here. They're talking about the state of the union whether or not, you know, the president hasn't been invited to do. So or may not be invited to do. So so where are we in this process? What are you kind of watching out for the consequences are piling up? You've got TSA shutting down concourses airports around the country federal workers or withdrawing from their retirement accounts at much higher rates than usual that things are happening in the state of the union may get called off. Letter from Nancy Pelosi this morning was less of a request to the White House. And more of a kind of politely worded announcement. So tell us about that before we move on. I wanna I wanna. To ask you about that. Because if you know I had forgotten Carol now, again, we're sort of talking about this earlier in this idea of the mechanics of this or essentially that the house, you know, the congress essentially invites the president to come speak to a joint session, right? That's how this works resolution. It feels like this is a reassertion or a reminder by speaker Pelosi in this case that these are co equal branches of government, right? Yeah. I mean, you know, she's only the leader of that. Right. Equal branch of government. But she does control the house chamber where the president is supposed to give the speech. And so essentially, the house speaker the president's deliver the state of the union, it's not even a resolution interesting, and she could not invitation she came just up to that line today by very strongly suggesting that they do something different this year. Like when you get invited to a dinner party like, yeah, I'm sorry. It's just not gonna work out. Meantime, you know, this is the one thing we look at so many different things from, you know, a very high perspective. But when you get on the ground, you think about all the people who are being impacted, right? They've missed one paycheck so far getting ready to miss a second paycheck. We're seeing lines of people government workers lining up for food. You know medicine, you know, whether or not they can access or pay for medicines that are necessary for either themselves or family members. I mean, this is real and this, you know, God forbid that we see something that's a really significant impact somebody getting hurt as a result of this effect on the economy is growing to the White House said yesterday that that the economic impact is about double what they initially estimated. We're losing I think point one three percent of GDP growth per week shutdown process. So yeah, there are there real effects here. And I think the folks to look at I believe our Senate Republicans, I think those are the folks that are starting to get a little weak-kneed about the shutdown. Right. And so what would they do? They would just come up with something that they felt like could pass the Senate take it to the house or how does this negotiation? Go do you think? Yeah. I mean, look worse case, I think if you see a complete collapse in the Senate, there would be a continuing resolution CR, we call it that would fund the government for some extended amount of time. Maybe for the entire year would pass both chambers. Go to the president he'd veto. It would come back and they'd override him. President because you did see just reminding people you we did see Lindsey Graham and Chris coons right of Delaware, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. Opposing parties essentially put forth an idea for what was it three weeks? Yeah. Losy plan. This is what has. Exactly, she says, you know, reopened all of the government except for the H S T T H S open pass a Bill for d h s for the next month, and we'll negotiate border security and short of that she's not willing to negotiate at all because the Democrats feel strongly the president shouldn't be able to hold federal workforce hostage to get his his policy objectives passed into law, politically who's getting hurt more here. Is it President Trump and the and the Republicans or is it the Democrats are a little bit. Both polls show. No question. It's the president or Republicans. We did a story about this. The other day there were six different polls over the weekend that showed by a fairly strong. Well, there they're overwhelming numbers of people who who blamed the president versus Democrats is something like fifty three fifty low fifty percentages blame the president no way thirty seven percent blame Democrats, which is which is meaningful any signs of hope from what you're reporting or your your reporters reporting shows from the White House. No, not from the White House. I think I think to the White House appears to be pretty content with the situation they're in. They've they've passed abundance. They've created much of work arounds to keep the essential services going into cushion the impact of the shutdown on regular Americans. And I don't I don't. I'm not convinced that anybody in the White House cares, particularly whether whether hundreds of thousands of quote, unquote, any central federal workers are are missing work. Wow. Well, we appreciate the update and all your ongoing work you and your team Alex Wayne White House editor for Bloomberg joining us on the phone from our bureau in. The nation's capital day twenty six right now, we've got equity averages they are across the board. And I've got the down the S and P hovering near its highs of the session.

"alex wayne" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"Including Comcast dish AT and T direct TV all plan to raise rates again in the new year moved could boost revenue, but does risk alienating subscribers who have their scissors out to cut the cord. That is a Bloomberg business flash politics policy. Power law continues. Thank you, Greg. We're live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studio, President Trump and the top leaders of both parties from the house and Senate are meeting at the White House right now to try to negotiate an end to the partial government shutdown which is in its fourteenth day. Joining us to tell us what is going on is Alex Wayne, Bloomberg news, White House team leader. Have you heard anything about the meeting? We didn't see any pictures this time, Alex, all quiet. We don't know whether it's ongoing, but we haven't seen any of the members of congress come to a set of microphones that are set up on the White House driveway. So we we think they're probably still still still talking. Is that a good sign in terms of taking it out of the public spotlight? And maybe finally getting down to brass tacks. If you will. Yeah. I think so I mean, I think probably the the more often they talk and the longer each each meeting goes on the better. For for federal employees who are out of jobs for Americans who want to visit national parks and take advantage of other federal services that aren't available right now. Alex, Republican congressman, Mark meadows. Who's Trump confidant predicted that the shutdown will last months is that the general feeling in DC and around the White House? Yeah, he's not the only one we've heard that from quite a few people that that that time line is measured in months, not days or weeks. Look the two sides appear to be very far apart on a on a solution. I think Democrats are very angry that that Trump has essentially taken the federal workforce hostage to force them to vote for a wall. And and they're not they're not willing to budge on that. I think Nancy Pelosi said last night, she would give him one dollar for the wall as a single dollar pushed into that too. Yeah. So I, you know, the democratic position is reopen the government, and then we can talk about the wall. And we we are going to hear the the newscasts coming up a soundbite from the deputy White House press secretary HOGAN Gidley who is basically saying that their expectation is that today with this meeting they can reach some sort of accord are they in parallel universes or what? Seems like it. I don't I don't know where Hogan's coming from it that honestly, I don't know how he what tea leaves. He's reading that. I'm not that that say they're going to reach some agreement today. I mean, you the best chance right now, I think for for any kind of an agreement it's probably some larger immigration deal wraps in dreamers, and and dealing with with border issues, dealing with asylum, probably dealing with all the kids coming across the border, and that's gonna that's gonna take time to put together. I think that sort of a deal would would mean reopening the government pretty quickly, but without any money for the border wall. And simply a commitment from Democrats to to work with the president on on a broader immigration package is majority leader Mitch McConnell showing any signs of voting on the package that the house that the house that bills dead. It's not gonna go anywhere. But you know, it's survival. Yeah. Oh, yeah. But it, but it served as. It was it was kind of a statement and a strategic move by by Nancy Pelosi is here. She basically said that Senate. Here's a piece of legislation passed this and the government's reopened. Now, a broader immigration deal would possibly result in the Senate taking up that Bill and passing it if if the president agrees to sign it, but but right now McConnell is kind of you know, he's sort of sidelined himself. And this and this whole thing he's kind of like just letting the Democrats fight it out with White House. A lot of reporters have been asking whether they might fold in the DACA deal rented. Is the White House highly resistant of that or is that a possibility democrat. So I don't I don't think there's I don't think they can simply put in some kind of a dreamer provision into the spending Bill on caught call it done. Democrats have resisted any kind of a sort of half-measure for the dreamers. You know, some just like temporarily extending their status in exchange for some money for the wall. They don't wanna do that Democrats have offered twenty five billion dollars for for border security, including a wall. If Trump who agree to legalize the dreamers. Millions of them. And there's there's not much middle ground there else. I wanted to get your reaction to President Trump calling a or rather Sarah Sanders calling a press conference yesterday and then President Trump appearing with border patrol agents. What was the what was that supposed to be? Yeah. That was a stunt by the president and. You know, it was kind of a kind of a. The as as reporters as journalists. I think we felt a little misled because the the White House did announce it as a briefing they told us that there would be a briefing in like five minutes. Sarah comes out says, well, here's the president and some border patrol officers standing behind him. I don't really know the the propriety at having on duty active duty border agents, backing the president on a on a political dispute, but set that aside when the president appears in the White House briefing room and reporters are simple to hear from him the reporters expect to get some questions answered and he refused. He he just made a statement and then walked out of the room. So. We felt a little misled. It's always an interesting time there in these years. Thanks so much. Alex pleasure to have you on. That's Alex, Wayne, Bloomberg news White House team leader coming up on Bloomberg politics, policy, power and law. Caller's gone will finally get his day in court after almost two months in prison in Japan after his shocking arrest, but first let's get a check on the latest world and national headlines. Bob moon is here for that. Bob and intense political scramble begins with words longtime Republican Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas will not seek reelection in two thousand twenty after a decades long career in congress a person with knowledge of the eighty two year old lawmakers decision told the Associated Press that Roberts will make the announcement today Roberts faced pressure to step aside in part because he would have been eighty four when facing voters in two thousand twenty and as we've been discussing President Trump and congressional leaders are meeting again at the White House at this hour as the government shutdown heads into its third week deputy White House press secretary hope. Gidley is washing optimism that today's meeting will result in a way to reopen. The government I think we can come to solution here if they would just acknowledge the situation that exists on the border that most Americans understand that most people now see with the video of people coming across this border. She can just do that. I think we can come to solution that actually benefits the American people. He was talking about Nancy Pelosi. The newly in reinstalled house leader Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer on his way to meet up with the president suggested majority leader Mitch McConnell is ducking his responsibilities because he's afraid of the presidency rational temper, President Trump can keep the government Chuck there for a long time. The president needs intervention leader McConnell and Senate Republicans are just the right ones to intervene and as negotiations.

On shutdown, Trump vows to wait as long as it takes for wall funding

"On the partial government shutdown unless congress funds his proposed border wall, and he wouldn't say whether he'd accept less than five billion dollars for the project a deal to fund shuttered government departments still seemed out of reach today. The sixth day of the partial shutdown Bloomberg White House team leader, Alex Wayne says, the Democrats aren't looking for a deal. I don't think Democrats are in any mood to compromise. Because on January third they take over the house at which point they could pass. Pass a continuing resolution, and they'll just reopen the government and keep it running at last year's funding levels. The Senate is scheduled to reconvene this afternoon. And there are no votes planned in the house. In fact, there may be few senators around today. Russia's says it tested a

G20: Trump meets with Xi at bilateral dinner; Saudi Crown Prince welcomed by Putin

"Talking about the global economy security so much more increased tensions. So definitely stoked by the US, specifically president Donald Trump's trade war. So let's get into this with our own Alex, Wayne, he is White House team leader joining us from the nation's capital, Alex. I think we all know what we're all waiting for is that dinner between trial and Chinese president Xi Jinping on the weekend. So tell me kind of where we are based on the kind of the news flow so far. He's got a couple of meetings with leaders, including dodge tina's, Argentina's, president Japan's Prime Minister any sign of this this NAFTA rewrite the deal he calls the US Mexico Canada agreement. The U S M. A pass congress. Right. I mean, that's one of the issues that seems to be coming to the fore. Now, he signed it he touted. But there's still a ways to go here. Right. Sure is. Yeah. And it's not even gonna get to congress until Democrats take over the house. Right. So I would not I would not bet a lot of money that the US MCI becomes an effective treaty. So what are the things we wanted to make sure we asked you about Alex says, you know, we we've seen a kind of the Tableau of the world leaders all getting together and seeing each other. They have you know, what they affectionately call the family photo where everybody gets together. But the lead into that was if I was sitting around my kitchen table at home, my kids would be looking at it and saying awkward. What was going on down there? You know for for once Trump wasn't the most isolated guy. One of these one of these summits. I don't know if you saw Mohammed bin Salman he was sitting by himself. The crown prince of Saudi Arabia, right? And then and then Putin and admit NBS had this weird high five handshake thing, you know, to two guys alleged of murdering their screen each other admitted national summit. Trump seems to be so far getting along. Okay. With people. He hasn't. He hasn't issued a tweet and salting the host nation like you did before you ride and Franceschi weeks ago. Right. So we'll see how it goes. I, you know, like, he says we'll see we'll see what happens and part of it obviously has to do with what he says on the way out. I mean, I think back to the g seven in Canada. If I remember that. Typically, the communique

"The report, the I've seen those reports that I can't comment one way or the other about what folks are working on for the president behind the scenes that's all covered by executive privilege, but I can tell you that the president had very promising call with presidency. We're looking forward to him having a very productive meeting when they meet at the g twenty meetings. Alex, Wayne is Bloomberg news White House team leader. He's in our Bloomberg ninety nine one studios in Washington, and he is not covered by executive privilege. So. Is this a real policy effort by the president or just politics before the midterms as some of his critics say, yeah. Hard to tell hard to tell it's always hard to tell you know, based on based on what you've heard from our sources, he has told his his cabinet to to draft up some potential terms for a deal that he could that he could reach at the g twenty. But there's a lot of skepticism about this. A lot of skepticism about this. I, you know, there's the big sticking point still is is China's theft of technology from from US companies and the force technology transfers, they they make US companies go through in order to get into business in China. China hasn't shown any indication they're gonna they're gonna stop those practices, and until they do Trump would look weak. If he if he agreed to any deal short of that, Alex, what has been happening with the trade relations with China over the past six months has been. Now, there's been hardly anything. The last time. Trump, and she spoke was in may. And if you remember. But

Trump On EU Auto Tariffs, I Just Want Fairness For Americans

"Hey, you listen to Biden's briefing every day. I had relevant stories and topics news to share with you and now onto the bravery. Trump tariff threat on European cars, escalates global trade war by Jenny Leonard, and Richard Bravo for Bloomberg news with assistance by Ben sills, Alex Wayne and Ryan bean President, Donald Trump, threatened a twenty percent tariff on cars, imported from the European Union. Unless the block removes import duties and other barriers to US goods escalating global trade war. The EU warned could endanger three hundred billion dollars in commerce based on the tariffs and trade barriers, long placed on the US and it's great companies and workers by the European Union. If these tariffs and barriers are not soon broken down and removed, we will be placing a twenty percent tariff on all of their cars coming into the US build them here Trump said in a tweet on Friday, the EU plan to retaliate according to a European Commission memo obtained by Bloomberg and introduction of. US tariffs would be met with the equivalent penalties imposed by affected trading partners. It said shares of Volkswagen AG dime. L'oeil AG and BMW AG fell in Frankfurt and US auto companies, erased earlier gains in New York trading Trump's tweet came hours after the EU impose tariffs on about three point, three billion dollars of American products in response to his barriers to imported aluminum, steel, the European tariffs target politically resonant products, including twenty five percent duties on Harley, Davidson, motorcycles, Levi Strauss, and company, jeans and bourbon. The EU measures cover a total of around two hundred categories also including various types of corn, rice, orange juice, cigarettes, cigars t-shirts, cosmetics boats, and steel trade war. Trump's latest salvo against the European auto. Oh industry threatens to broaden a trade war that he's already sparked with China. The US has pledged to impose twenty five percent tariffs on thirty four billion dollars in Chinese goods on July sixth and China vowed to retaliate. In the same amount of US imports, the US may justify the auto tariffs on the grounds of national defense just as it did in March when imposing duties on global imports of steel and aluminum Trump initially exempted the EU from the metal tariffs, but let the temporary reprieve expire after negotiations with the Europeans fell apart America's ambassador to Germany. Rick Grenell is in Washington this week seeking deal on auto levies. He spoke to White House trade advisor, Peter Navarro, commerce, secretary. Wilbur Ross US Trade Representative, Robert lighthizer, and Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin about reducing existing tariffs on cars shipped between the US. In Europe, two zero, their support in the administration and from German carmakers for such an idea. But no agreement has been reached yet. Rarely used the Commerce Department in may started investigating whether imports of cars and light trucks hurt America's ability to defend itself by a rotating, the country's auto industry. If the findings show a threat to the US a nineteen sixties era. Trade law gives the president of thority to impose import restrictions without congressional approval. Many lawmakers have been critical of Trump's use of the trade law which was rarely applied before he took office Ross during a Senate hearing on Wednesday faced heated questions from GOP lawmakers who argued there was no merit to claiming auto imports threaten the country's defence capabilities Bill Reinsch, senior adviser at the center for strategic and international studies in Washington and former. Commerce official said the president's tweet may undermine his government's argument for auto tariffs, having ordered an investigation into whether auto imports are a national security threat. He has now undercut that by reaching his conclusion before the investigation has barely begun. Reinsch said it's a classic case of ready fire aim, and it will only lead to litigation in the US and a loss at the WTO. When we are inevitably taken, they're buying European the Washington trade association for BMW dime, learn and Volkswagen's operations. In the US warned consumers will be harmed by higher tariffs, consumers fare best when tariffs are low Gloria Burke west spokeswoman for the alliance of automobile manufacturers said in a statement, the group also represents General Motors company and Fiat Chrysler automobiles and v Trump's tariff rhetoric further undermines US auto market alr-. Ready in its second year of decline. After record sales in twenty sixteen said Cody Lusk president of the American international Automobile Dealers Association. He pointed to dime Lewis decision on Thursday to pare its profit outlook as an early example, you're already going to see prices going up incrementally as a result of the steel and aluminum tariffs in the auto sector said Lusk, whose group represents foreign branded auto dealers in the US. All of that combined with increasing interest rates is a recipe for disaster.
