"We've watched over the last eighteen months. What a pandemic can do to an economy. Industrial production is out of wack. Small business revenue is down. Addictions are up and people aren't spending as much. President biden says his latest efforts to rein in covert nineteen with a vaccination mandate or testing requirement for companies with more than one hundred. Employees is not only a health imperative. It's vital to help jumpstart are faltering economic recovery. Let's check in with ali vel she. Msnbc anchor and economics correspondent for more welcome. Thanks good to be back with you. Yeah alley let's look at where the economy stands right now. There are some very positive signs of a few months back but that is somewhat shifted. What is the recovery. Compared to economists and officials had hoped we would be right now so the interesting part is actually better off than most people thought we would be a year or year and a half ago right. We thought it would be twenty twenty two before we saw sort of a full recovery. We've already seen wages up. Which is typical of a tight. Employment market People are finding it. Hard to businesses are finding it hard to find employees We've we've also seen Unemployment go down to five percent now is in the threes before the The pandemic but we really thought we'd be well into two thousand twenty two. the problem is the trajectory. The slope has changed if things were getting. Were opening fast. People were spending money things. Were getting back to normal and the delta variant has completely changed that around. It's threatened two things one is people and they're spending and being out there. The other thing is it's made it very unclear. What parents should do about their kids. Because there's this back to school thing where. A lot of schools want to reopen but some schools don't have mask mandate some states. Allow them to do so. Parents are concerned and kids under twelve. Can't get vaccinated so all of this is affecting consumer psyche right now. The economy is generally speaking was moving in the right direction and could be again but the delta variant is is slowing it down. It's been it's been a substantial hiccup. How much does this slowdown in. Recovery differ between places with high and low vaccination rates. Well it's it's interesting because places with low. Vaccination rates are seeing much more covert and as a result are feeling harder hit but there are also the places where there are no lock down there are generally speaking no restrictions. So you know where you see. People pulling back is in dining and entertainment and things like that but in some of those places. They're not pulling back because they they've never pulled back or they're not imposing restrictions so it it's kind of unusual. The map of where cova is exploding. Right now is not necessarily the map of where things are slowing down. Because it is the states that had lockdowns and mandates early that are in some cases doing it again places like new and california and yet the explosions in cova are in a lot of other states in most cases in the south they're still large barriers preventing people though from coming back to the workforce childcare stagnant wages. How much of this slowdown do you attribute to. The delta variant I think it's i think the issue of childcare and school is a very very big one because there are people who are thinking about going back to work after the year that they've had and they're unsure about what the school situation is going to be. Because there's so much debate about it so you may know what your school district is doing. But there's so much debate at the state level the national level about How to deal with kids and masks and things like that then. I think some parents are holding off as much as they can before returning to work. Now remember there are a lot of americans who've been working from home and they're still in the game this is about people who have been unemployed Or you know chose to leave their jobs. Are there more hesitant than you would expect to get back into the job market right now. We are seeing wages increase as a result which is interesting because there's been such a long battle about increasing. The minimum wage at the federal level with the minimum wage at the federal level is still seven dollars and twenty five cents but no employer can find someone to work for that kind of money. These days i want to go back to something you said about places where we see high on vaccination rates and and spending in those areas. There's a drop in spending though in areas with high vaccination. How do you think biden's plan addresses. The issues. consumers have in those areas. Is it hesitancy to go out and spend or the belt so you'll see it. The hesitancy tends to be in dining and entertainment in heavily vaccinated parts of the country. A lot of virus wary americans including those who've been vaccinated who are worried about getting Grow virus that is spread by by large unvaccinated population. Even in places like new york They've pulled back on some of their economic activity. Even though infection rates among vaccinated people in highly vaccinated states is very low your likelihood of getting vaccinated getting ill and suffering a substantial illness. If you've been vaccinated is low but play places like new york. For instance or massachusetts people are pulling back a little bit in less vaccinated states like texas for instance that have experienced a large wave of delta infections. The rising hospitalization and death rates are not really driving economic activity as much as they did in previous waves. So it's it's it's definitely an instance of what's actually happening is not the thing that's driving behavior. It's what people think is happening. So if you live in a place where you just don't believe that this kobe thing is a threat you. You're maintaining your economic activity so much to talk about alley. Vel she allie vel she. Msnbc anchor and economics correspondent as always. Thank you my pleasure. Here now is production of npr in wb. You are. I'm tanya mostly and i'm scott. Tong this is here now..

"Celebration your little. Stay at home christmas party. So we'll do that okay. Then next week. I know everyone else is going to be on vacation. I will be here monday. Tuesday wednesday will be here live. Yup so that would be december. Twenty eighth twenty ninth and thirtieth live shows not only here but because i'm a glutton for punishment i'm also guest hosting the broadcast brad friedman those three days so i'll be working my butt off and i've got some ample poundage there to work off so monday tuesday wednesday next week we will also be live with new shows then thursday and friday of next week new year's eve and new year's day new year's eve our fifth wedding anniversary i guess i was just so excited about it. I jumped the gun a little bit. I'm taking those two days off. Haven't figured out yet what we're doing. I may do one like best of show. Just because and one like Another music show just. Because i can't do it when we're live because i can't do the music show on youtube because i get copyright violated and the blow me off the ad all my god. Did you see this. These snuck in this bill. And i'm not sure if it's in the covid relief part of it or the omnibus part of it but there's a whole i think it's in the omnibus part of it. There's a whole section in this bill. That basically says what i did the twenty seconds of the don henley song that i played the got me booted off of youtube for three months could get me thrown in jail seriously. There's a provision in that bill. Let me see if i can find it. That is the one who alerted me to it. Because she tweeted over a story that says there's a provision buried inside the omnibus funding bill. That would make streaming content for which you don't own the copyright like movies or song. Perhaps a felony with jail time of up to ten years and she was bitching she tweeted. She said members of congress have not read this bill. It's over five thousand pages. It arrived at two pm today. And we're told to expect a vote on it in two hours. This isn't governance. it's hostage-taking so the copyright laws are already fucked up when it comes to the internet. We know that there's the digital millennium copyright act that was passed as the name suggests about twenty years ago. That is all screwy. And that's why there's all these i play. Twenty seconds song. I get a copyright notice. You know that most of them don't violate me. Like don henley didn't get kicked off of youtube for three months but what they do do is take whatever. Revenue is is generated by your views. And i don't run ads. But youtube does whatever whatever revenues generated and they appropriated basically they confiscated because they said you ran my content. I can take your stuff. So that's what happens with youtube with this copyright stuff. This was just snuck in that bill. Nobody knew it was there and here we are. That's something that needs to be fixed along with a lot of other things. But i digress. So anyway that's the schedule we're here live today live tomorrow. Special music programming audio only thursday and friday and renson repeat next week to all right. So we're here. You can always you know check in with me like i said i know if i'm here i miss. We'll be working. As if i wasn't working i'd be painting and that's okay too right all right so let's get on with it. There's stuff going on. Donald trump is getting further and further unhinged with each passing day. I'm just. I'm blown away by stuff. We're learning with each day. That goes by. I get more and more disillusioned with the corporate media choices that we have but there are few people on the msnbc that i like. One of them is allie. Vel she can. I find this cream. What happened to the screen. I had up. I thought i had a screen where i could share with you. Well let me play the audio alley. Vel she went a little berserk on this. What's happening inside the white house right now. Where donald trump is meeting with the the crazy contingent of the house republicans. I mentioned this to yesterday. matt gaetz. Louie gohmert. who else was there. You know. the usual suspects crazies were there and along with michael flynn. And what's her name. The crazy woman who are encouraging basically a coup an alley val. She went a bit berserk on them. When you use the military to overturn election. It's a coup role in enforcement of anything having to do with civilians and their democracy also not normal that these conversations about a coup are ongoing maggie haberman of the new york times reports the disgraced crackpot of a lawyer sydney how this afternoon discontinued talk. Coup has gone on long enough that some senior white house officials are actually afraid thanks. Senior admitted administration officials. Who refused to go on. The record told acts yes that when trump is quote re tweeting threats of putting politicians in jail and spend time talking to conspiracy nuts who openly say declaring martial. Law is no big deal.

"It came out we are deplorable and they came out by the million shirts sold like crazy. Is it just. Happens and now it's happening with Biden because it's a crime family. Franklin. Him accusing other people being a crime family is some rich shit. No he was pausing for them to chant lock her up I see. And did they didn't hear them? They were okay yeah. They didn't have it Mike properly. So and then so you remember Allie vel she he's a reporter for MSNBC. Trump is taken to mocking him because he was covering protests in Minneapolis and got hit with a rubber bullet. Trump calls him not the bravest guy this coming from Corporal Bone Spurs who in the bunker when people were protesting outside the White House. Because you know we have to be asked in the federal government has to be said, and then we did a great job in Minnesota. Minneapolis. I mean I should've told us to go there. We could have early would have been nice. It would have saved a lot of destruction remember the CNN anchor Belsey. He said we are here. They don't want to talk about riots because it's bad for them. You know we are here at a peaceful demonstration and behind him over the entire city is burning down. Flyer. That look like Berlin. On its worst say the whole place was burning down and then he said the military has formed what was A It was a great group of people you saw that the national, Guard And was one, two, three, all of a sudden. They started one line to Liza and they just march forward at tear-gas. Didn't felt she get hit on the knee with teargas and they went there they said he's down felt she didn't even know who to help belts US I just remember. diller shave job at his head.

Says, he brought up Minnesota and who set fire to that polices. The police precinct turns out it was a right wing active is who set fire to the police precinct, which was the time. So we didn't really cover a whole lot of the of the last debate. On the show a Daniel Dale who is the CNN fact Checker he breaks it down pretty simply. Ridge Dan. Let's start with the big picture on how much the candidates got right or wrong tonight. Wolf President trump was better behaved tonight but he lied more this was just a bombardment of dishonesty much of which for four at his campaign rallies about subjects big and small important stuff like the coronavirus pandemic about Biden's policies.

"Joining US tonight. We really appreciate it. Must Thank you Lawrence. We're going back to Allie. Vel She on. The streets have been Now can you hear us? And can you tell us what you're seeing? Yes where about a block away now from a building that is fully involved in a fire as you can see with problem. We had last night with fires. It's difficult for the fire. Department getting came in under police escort and they were Justice we're throwing things at them so we've got an issue here and then the fires a block away. You see some police barriers being what the crowd is now moving toward the fire. I see how twenty seven straight now avenue. There are more people coming down this way so we have a fully engulfed fire in a area which doesn't have any space between the buildings. This is what happened last night. Yeah the autozone catch fire. He had a building next week. Catch fire you got another building beyond mass catch fire and that we've got Several buildings between where I am in a block away and that is a fully fully involved. Fire that entire building you could see the smoke and you can see those flames is burning but I will tell you again lawrence. There are five. Police officers on the top of that precinct may seem to have gotten back onto the roof and there's no other police presence here. There is a police in beers to be a police. Escort of the firefighters over there. This is potentially other flashpoints so a lot of tension around here a lot of protesters who've been protesting peacefully all day and have their signs have stayed a little bit further back there. Still some tear gas canister. We're seeing some more flashbacks from the beliefs with this crowd behind me. But they're still pushing toward the police station and tried to protest there. There's another crowd there. That's going toward that. We do know what. Do Not know what started this particular fire but it is raging now and there is danger to the buildings around it so south. Minneapolis Right. Now is still a very very tense place in All Directions? Lawrence Ellie. Stay SAFE AND WE'RE GONNA come back to you as the situation develops. We're joined now by Gilani.

"Everyone redlining if you remember was the term where banks took hold neighborhoods and said people in these neighborhoods of poor. They're not going to be able to pay off their mortgages. Tell them you're salesman. Don't go into those areas and then Congress got involved as local elected officials as well and said Oh. That's not fair. These people should be able to get credit and once you started pushing in that direction. Bank started making more and more loans where the credit of the person buying. The house wasn't as good as you would like Bloomberg's presidential k. Let me stop and hold on by BUBBA. Sorry I cut it there so so that was the the audio from two thousand eight. This was less than a month. After everything crashed. That was the end of August. This was September and Michael Bloomberg was saying that the he he blaming the whole crisis of the crash on the end of red lining when they could no longer discriminate. Obviously You heard Me Brzezinski. Come in here. I can't read it with a straight face. She did this. She gives the Bloomberg campaigns. Excuse for the comment. Bloomberg's presidential campaign has refuted the context of the conversation claiming that he listened stead quotes saying that something bad. The financial crisis followed something. Good which is the fight against redlining that he was part of Kashmir the campaign said that Bloomberg was attacking predatory lending opposite world. God can you imagine if he's the nominee and we get to at least self-proclaimed billionaires? I know he is Donald Trump not so sure but to lie prodigiously. Go figure more and Michael Bloomberg coming up in a few minutes. But there's more news to get to yesterday. I know look. We all tuned out of C. Span once the impeachment trial ended but their stuff going on and perhaps yesterday would have been a good day to watch because the Senate Judiciary Committee had Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in the hot seat. He was grilled by Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon about why the Treasury Department. This just happened in the last day or two. The Treasury Department gave Senate Republicans pretentiously damaging financial information related to Joe Biden on hunter immediately. When they ask for it but they've blocked democratic requests for trump's tax returns for oh. I don't know it seems like three years now. I want to start with what I think is a cleared double standard with respect to responding to requests on Congressional oversight. The request from the Democratic Chair with a firm legal basis yep was met with nothing but legal foot-dragging the request that came from the Republican chairs got VIP treatment. They got no response out the door in a flash so it looks to me like there's a double standard eight you all are tipping the scales of Congressional oversight. What am I missing Mister Secretary the house? Disclosure of tax returns is subject to protection twenty-six. Usc Sixty one zero three on the advice of counsel As we've documented we had significant concerns. That's very different than I believe what? You're referring to as SARS requests. Which on a bipartisan basis. We have responded to thousands of SARS requests to the committees from both Republicans and Democrats on an equal basis. So as we said Treasury does not process Greg Carey York Stonewalling Party about stonewalling there. S really not at all. You got to committee chairs. One gets no response with legal authority. That's the Democrat. The Republican gets a quick response. And that's how it works or doesn't work as case is but wait. There's more senator. Sherrod Brown is also on the Senate Judiciary Committee and he attempted Mnuchin to get Mnuchin to explain why the nomination of former US attorney Jesse Lou to a Treasury Department post was abruptly pulled on Tuesday just two days before she was scheduled to testify before the Senate got word last night. Jessie Liu whom we're going to do a hearing in banking for nomination she was I'm inexplicably and suddenly withdrawn by the nomination by the president. Last night well think under president was withdrawing in undersecretary of your department. I believe it was two days ago days ago. Can you tell me why are nomination was withdrawn? Of course not. I think you know. She's not a power at the president's direction and we don't comment when nomination as a matter of policy combinations are withdrawn which happened for a variety of different different administration. So you don't have any knowledge or knowledge of why she was withdrawn again. What I've said is is a is a matter not going to give you a second chance. Some secretary prior to position this. Maybe you don't I don't know was the US she was us. Attorney for the district issues involved in the cases of three of Mr Trump's convicted political district. Kids Mr Stone. Mr Flynn absent any plausible explanation for his withdrawal this nomination even though you claim. I hope you know you're more or less under oath. You claim to have known it for another stop on the president's personal retribution tour an attempt to ensure that she did not come before the Banking Committee tomorrow to ensure to TNT. Answer under oath questions about those prosecutorial decisions when Prosecutors Scaling Back Sentencing Recommendations of Mr. Flynn was senior. Doj official suddenly intervening yesterday to reverse in make more lenient. The sentencing recommendation of career. Prosecutors for them withdrew. One of them actually resigned. It tells us a lot of retribution is PR tour for the White House's personal retribution. Tour. The president's engaged in started with with the prayer breakfast of all places and then then the East Room and then as a tax and colonel mocking his accent. The unannounced the surprise unexplored unexplained withdrawal. Jessie Liu and I would hope you would give an explanation. Yeah that's that's the one that the counter the one that everyone assumes that is the president is she's part of the president's personal retribution tour so I'm hopeful that it even this hearing or later you will help us and tell us the real reason. Yeah right but don't hold your breath part of the president's personal retribution tour. Yup and so. What did Jessie Liu today? She said take this job and shove it she resigned. She said really your nominate me for this thing. Two days before my confirmation hearing you withdraw the nomination. I quit good for her following the four prosecutors who quit. It's a trend. I see a trend. In another sign of the growing financial crisis in print. Journalism mcclatchy filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy protection. In case you don't know mcclatchy. They own about thirty newspapers across the country including Miami Herald. This is a big deal. Mcclatchy as opposed to some of the other so called you know Newspaper companies a is actually a good journalistic endeavor. And so this is. This is disturbing. That's not good news. Hey there's an update on Jim Jordan situation. A former captain of the Ohio State University wrestling team told members of the Ohio House Civil Justice Committee that Congressman Jim Jordan was not only aware of allegations of sexual abuse that took place at the university in the nineteen eighties and nineties but that he begged others to cover up his involvement. The man the former captain who was speaking. There's audio out there. I don't have it. I didn't pull it because it was just long and I could have tightened it up a little bit. But he said Jordan cried on the phone with him begging him to basically have as back. Hey this is good news. The House gave the era temporary new lease on life by voting to remove a nineteen eighty two deadline for ratification by the states. The approval pushes the issue to the Republican controlled Senate where removing the deadline is unlikely to find support. But the Virginia General Assembly last month became the thirty eighth state to ratify the equal rights amendment. That's the threshold needed for a proposed amendment to be added to the constitution. So we should be there if we had a Democrat in the White House if we had a Democrat control of the Senate. Hey women fellow women we'd be equal in the eyes of the law. What a concept. What a concept K. One other thing before we get Howie Klein on the line. Because I know I bitch with how it seems every week about the media bias against Bernie Sanders. But it's really getting out of control. I played for you some of Chuck. Todd's nonsense yesterday. I won't burn with it again but I'm gonNA play for you one other thing. This is Jim Messina now the MSNBC has you know is well has been featuring not only Jim Sina no not Kenny. Loggins but David Plov the architects of Barack Obama's campaigns Who are both seem to be You know well I guess what what what. Obama turned out to be which is a centrist. Sorry not a progressive and so Jim Messina jumped on the Msnbc bandwagon of you know anybody but Bernie we know. Here's a few things we know. Bernie Sanders won the popular. Vote in Iowa. I mentioned this earlier in the program by six thousand votes and somehow in Iowa math that gave P. Buddha judge a point. One percentage point one tenth of a percentage point win over. Bernie Sanders that. That's that's creative now for you So you know. They're calling it a Buddha judge win although come on anybody else if it was if it was you know Joe Biden who got Bernie Sanders numbers. They wouldn't be calling it a Buddha judge win. Just saying and then Bernie wins in New Hampshire and despite what chuck towed says a win is a win. He said at the other day like they're gonNA say a win is a win. How do you know how how ridiculous of them to claim a win is a win? Because you know in this case it's Bernie Sanders so a win campy a win and then they get Jim Messina on the air. Who SAYS FORGET BERNIE? This was a stellar night for Amy Klobuchar. Because she came in third and actually the guy who wasn't even on the ballot at all Michael Bloomberg he was the real winner of the night. I couldn't make this stuff up. I try is a very big deal. That turnout is higher than two thousand eight. That shows you a base and a party that has united very excited and the second number of that. I think people need to watch you. Know over fifty. Five percent of voters voted for a moderate candidate. They said the most important issues. Who can beat Donald Trump and that? L- you're looking at the big number. The big winner last night could be mayor Bloomberg because he gets ready for battleship Bloomberg in this unbelievable spending. That's about to come our way. He's sitting back here ready to make a case that he's the best candidate so we are in early days And it's going to be very interesting. Moving forward unbelievable but it's totally believable. If you watch. Msnbc that's what you get. By and large there are few honest brokers on that channel. I think Chris Hayes is one I actually think Katie Tours one. I used to think Allie vel. She was one but boy. Did I get into a twitter fight with him this past weekend because his show was all go? Go Pete. Go go anyone but Bernie. It's really it's journalistic. Malpractice is what it is. So allie vel. She is not on my respected journalists. Lists anymore not even close. And that's a shame. I used to like him but there was one other thing I wanted to tell you about before we get Howie Klein on the line and I can't think of what it is so well. I'm it'll come to me when you always here so I'll tell you what. Let's not wait any longer. Let's go ahead and start mixing up those dirty. Debbie's are you.

"You've been very focused in the work that you've done on not not letting people sort of succumb to doom and gloom very focused on optimism and washes US gone through charts about adoption of like you know alternate energy and it's also the case that like you know Michiko emissions of doubled in the last thirty years they keep going up. What do you do with that. There's a there's a part of critique. That says it's all broken. It's all going in the wrong way all deluding ourselves. Something truly disruptive in radical has to happen. Will I believe that but how do you get from here to there. There's no doubt first of all that that when the future of humanity is at risk despair is simply another form of denial. It's also true that anyone offering a pollyanna ish version of false. Hope is also in engaging in a an exotic form of denial. The truth is this. We have suffered offered losses. Some of which regrettably are unrecoverable. There are more losses yet to come that are now inevitable no matter what we do that's the truth of our situation but we still retain the ability according to virtually virtually every scientist an expert in this field that I know to avoid the truly catastrophic civilization ending consequences that would occur. Where are we not to act so being honest with ourselves about the damage that has been done has to be accompanied by an absolute salute character based determination say hell yes? We're going to do our best and we're going to get started as quickly as we can and do it as well as we camp. Dan and I don't know any other way to do it. I also believe that in the in the famous phrase rays of Rudy Dornbush the late economists at Mit things take longer to happen than you think they will but then they happen faster than you thought they could. and I'll give you a couple of the districts just five years ago one year before the Paris Agreement Electricity Christie from solar and wind was the cheapest source in only one percent of the world today five years later. It's the cheapest cheapest source of electricity in two thirds of the world in another five years that will be true virtually everywhere in another ten years it it is projected to be cheaper than electricity from existing fully depreciated fossil fuel plants some of which are already being shut down with useful life remaining because it's just cheaper to get the electricity from saw the sun and the wind coupled with battery storage which is also coming down in price now. It's definitely true that the optimism about that is based on new insulations but it's now beginning to shift over to the closing of existing fossil fuel plants. You can look at electric transportation same story with Electric Vehicles Sixteen countries have have enacted policies requiring the legal phase out making it illegal after a certain day to sell gasoline or diesel engines engines requiring electric vehicles within five years half the buzzes in the world are GonNa be electric now. Is it having fast enough. No and this is not ought to speak to manufacturing and regenerative agriculture and sustainable forestry and all the things that have to be done and yes. It's an extra analogy that has to be priced but also we have a whole system for measuring what's valuable to us that doesn't just exclude lewd the polluting consequences of carbon dioxide but excludes the value of everything that's not easily monetize and financialised and we have to change that system as well final question for you. Is there someone in the Democratic field that you feel best gets this problem centers this problem that you're the most confident. I'm not asking for. An endorsement post sounded like that. I'm asking you just asking me to pick one well. I void the word earn your I'm asking look I think if you take the problem seriously any as seriously as certainly you I do and I think increasingly younger people do that. The next president states if you know if it's not this is basically going to have to wake up every morning with this the first thing they think about. There's just no way around that. Is there someone in the field or are there multiple people in the field that you feel confident that that's the case about. We'll forgive forgive me for for really and truly avoiding singling out one candidate. I'm trying to not do that for a lot for a lot of reasons but I'll tell you this. I I am really impressed that virtually all of the candidates in this field have made the climate crisis a top priority some of the top priority so many of them have presented elaborate plans in sufficient detail that it would have been unthinkable just a few years ago and I think that it's reshaping the political dialogue ugh between the two parties we talk about polling earlier you know sixty seven percent more than two thirds of millennial. Republican registered registered voters say hey this party has got to change. Shaw on Climate Multiple Chapters of the College Republicans have a petition the RNC to change its climate policy and warned it that they're gonNA lose young voters if they do not we're seeing seeing a real sea change here and the the the aphorism from Rudy Dornbush that I mentioned earlier is now playing out in the medical. Whole world is well? It took a long time without much change but now I think things are changing. Kind of a dam is breaking and people are changing swiftly vice-president scrape pleasure. Thank you very much thank you. cliven private lives and toward next to these students here rather twenty. Thank reactions the candidates right after this. I'm Ben I'm a freshman at George Sound so history. Congr- Oh my question for you is. Why did you vote for the keystone? Pipeline as fossil fuel jobs are replaced by environment environmentally sustainable jobs as president. How do you plan to make sure that these workers are trained to compete and a new greener industry recently. The International Organization Station for Migration has projected that between twenty five million and one point five billion people. We'll have to leave their homes. By two thousand fifty to climate change people from the poorest and smallest nations will likely be forced to migrate. I as the United States is leading the world in carbon emissions. What role do you believe the United States must play in regards to these inevitable. Climate migrants sounds great. Question is a great question. Minority and low income neighborhoods and communities in transition are disproportionately targeted by industries that fall all the path of least resistance when deciding where to locate hazardous waste sites and other polluting facilities. How would you regulate these corporate actions in order to fight environmental racial and socio canonic injustice. What measures would you take not only to reduce co two emissions but to assist stated day outdoor and indoor workers from these heat witnesses back here in Georgetown University joined by the students. We had a forum this morning. We had a whole Gotcha candidates talking. We gotTA talk for thirty minutes my colleague Allie vel she and I and then these students asked as you can see from that clip a bunch of incredible questions. I would just wanted to check in with them and see see what they thought. You were you at the form. Yes anyone particularly strong tutored as anyone that you've felt stood out. I have to say Bernie any sanders. I mean it's clear that everyone's passionate about climate change. Thank you but it has to be Bernie Sanders. Who is the most passionate out of all but I I still keep asking. Who has the actual policy changes? That are realistic that will bring the change. Even if it's radical it has to be realistic but do you do you worry about. How much do you think about the political constraints which I think a lot of people get obsessed with including myself understandably. But how much do you think about when you're hearing whether it's Bernie Sanders or others. Do you think oh there's Mitch McConnell. Go for that and we'll be able to get the votes for that. I actually do think about it. We have to be realistic about it. We we want to bring the climate. Change is as soon as possible and US being a global superpower. It's us that's GonNa make the changes but the problem is bipartisan bipartisan politics. It's difficult and we have to be realistic about which policies policies will pass today. I less was there a policy. We'll see or an answer that was given today that stuck out to you. Particularly I would say more of like Bernie. Sanders is very much hard on climate change which I think is good but I believe Leeann Castro was. It was really stood out because he was one of the people who mentioned about environmental racism. This is acting people of color more than anything else that I think that a lot of people tend to be Republicans unstinted forget that and they leave us out of the narrative people usually don't listen to low income people of color so I think that emphasizing that this is affecting us us. No one's GonNa really care until it starts hitting them. How old are you because I just turned twenty one so you're gonNA vote. You're GonNa vote of course are are you. GonNa vote in the primary I'm GonNa. Do you have an undecided voter. You have a candidate that you're looking at. I I'm stuck between Elizabeth. Warren and Castro stroke so I'm let me see what happens with thanks a lot. How about you you were you were there today. What do you think about the gap that we kept coming back to. Between what the what what has to be done in what what our politics can do. I think what was said a moment ago that you know even if something is radical we have to take the change that is even if it isn't immediately seeming politically feasible. We need to take the biggest upset we can immediately immediately to try and change the world before things fall apart major issues like the major issues that come from climate change like mass migration people having to lose their homes with just the way that our world is going to change in future generations being impact in the way that we can't imagine radical is right so you want to see you wanna see pushing big ideas ideas. You want to see them going out past the third frontiers what might be possible and then if they have to compromise. That's are definitely a how much you like in your inner psychological logical life worry about climate change. I mean seriously like how is it a source of anxiety for you. I would say so I mean you think about things like down the road twenty five fifty fifty years from now when you were growing up or when you're getting older and you have a family you when you have kids and you start to wonder will my kids have a planet when my kids have the same. I'm we imagine that they won't have the same world that we do and it's really up to our current leaders to pick up where the past has dropped off and run with with the ball right like we needed to make take action now because of that enormous anxiety that is resting. I can imagine a lot of our our heads at this time so I'd say it's that they work art. Thanks it's really well done. Do you ask you that same question. You're at the forum today right. Say let's do you. How how much do you follow as you. How much do you think about it. How much does it occupy mental space for you. Occupies my thoughts I'm here at Georgetown to set you climbing wall seem at the School of Foreign Service because the US the leader and work with countries all over to to address these issues this issue. What did you think of the discussion today about the international dimensions because we kept coming back to that. Obviously it's an enormous part of the US is about twenty percent of emissions at this point. Were their ideas their you liked years. You didn't like things that stuck out. I did appreciate that it was the international Russian especially because climate change is a national security issue. We saw that especially from Castro climate refugees but I think plans great. We need to know if they're going to make this a commitment. Will this top priority. Will they use their political capital in their first first year in that comprehensive climate change and how will they do that if it's a divided congress. It really comes down if they can make it happen. Do you feel we were pushing. Everyone on is.

"So the cheers went on for a while there as you hear some men as Cemento prone to do start attending USA USA alley. No, you gotta jump off. What were you thinking? During that. I thought that was a brilliant move by Donald Trump. He took credit for something that I inherently had no hand in but actually had a very big hand in because of the reason that that all those women ran it is a little bit like me taking credit for this beautiful sunny day in New York today. But he he did it and he pulled it off and he had the entire house cheering for something. He said and Nancy Pelosi and through. Doing. So I think history will show that may have been the win moment for the president. And before I get your response. Just thank Allie. Allie vel. She MSNBC host co host was Stephanie rule of L. She rule in the one o'clock hour on MSNBC and host and anchor of his own our at three PM on the weekdays alley. Thank you very much. We really appreciate it. I absolute pleasure and Anita Kumar White House correspondent for politico. What did you think about the contrast of democratic women wearing white and the men wearing the customary uniform of dark, suits and never mind that there are so many women in congress now because so many women in America, see Trump as a misogynist? So how weird was that moment to witness? It was a weird vote. I agree with Allendale. It was sort of a brilliant moment. Right. He's taking credit for something. That's not Joan. But you know, they didn't have to respond, right? You know, you saw Nancy. Pelosi behind him. Most of the time sort of winter lips tightly closed kind of trying to not express anything. And she took it. She took that moment. All the women took that moment. And I think they were all just celebrating the fact that they were there. It was a moment. There was a sea of white, and they and they took it it ended up being sort of like Trump was saying taking credit for them. And and it seemed like they sort of let it, but I think they were just celebrating the moment. It was funny because you saw later after the speech women on Twitter and just in conversation talking about how you know. I think Kristen gillibrand Senator who is looking at a presidential bid. And a couple of years says, you know, President Trump doesn't seem to understand that the female jobs. He created were democratic women in congress. So it was just it was just a funny moment and probably a good moment for everybody. Like, the one one of the only good moments in the speech where everybody was sort of celebrating. And in a way, Trump is responsible for there being as many women in congress as they are. Because so many women in America are so disgusted with his policies. And behaviors so Anita Kumar White House correspondent for politico. We really appreciate your time after staying up late covering the speech and doing this with us for half. A thank you very much.

"There's a lot more to say, and we'll play more clips of Trump's Stacey Abrams and California attorney general heavier Basirah who gave a Democratic Party response in Spanish listeners hold off on costs for the moment. We'll take them in a little while. Our first guest today are Anita Kumar White House correspondent for politico and Allie Vel she MSNBC hosts part of the Vail. She and rule weekday anchor team with Stephanie rule in the network's one o'clock hour, plus alleys own our at three PM, Anita and alley. Thanks so much for the time today. Welcome to WNYC. Thank. Can we talk about that weird defensive moment about investigations, I ally, what did it even mean that he paired war an investigation as the only things that can stop legislation? We'll probably I think what we've learned in the last two years is that there's an audience that that takes the president at his word. So when he says things like that, you know, one of the latest things that he's been talking about is that the wall is being built that there's lots of wall being built, and there's a percentage of Americans probably close to thirty percent who believed that they take him at his word because they've come to disbelieve the media. So when the president says something like that, there's no intellectual economic historical basis for that. It actually doesn't make sense to most people. Those those functions should be working investigative and oversight functions should be working and the economy can work. There's actually there's virtually no connection between the two. In fact, if I were to argue I would say war wild terrible, generally actually gives you an economic boost. So it didn't make any sense whatsoever. Ever and Anita. He actually did say with war. There can't be peace. That was one little weird part of that that stretch. But do you know, the White House correspondent who wrote that speech with its ungrammatical on matching singular and plural in that moment. Maybe it's picky to talk about the English. But I mean, it was tended to be a high publicity highlight the only thing that can stop. It are foolish wars politics or ridiculous partisan investigations that was in the print attacks and text than on his teleprompter. Right. We have been we have been told that Stephen Miller one of his top aides who people might know. He's behind a lot of the immigration policies at the White House. Put out wise one of the authors. I don't think. A speech of this magnitude this length is written by one person. But I think he was the primary author that of course, the president also is involved. I'm not saying that he's writing every line. But he doesn't look at it make notes send it back that sort of thing and Allie apparently though, it didn't see this with my own eyes. I must have looked over Twitter or something just wrong moment. But when Trump said that line, I I understand congressman Adam Schiff chair of the house intelligence committee began to laugh and Pelosi from the podium signaled with her hands for him and other Democrats in the chamber not to. Yes. What did you make of that? Well, so we had heard some reporting ahead of time that Nancy Pelosi had spoken to her gosh members. Obviously the women were wearing white in support of women's voting rights, but she had sort of said, let's let's not take the attention away by antics and responses and things like that. And it was interesting to watch Nancy Pelosi through the whole thing. Not only not having frustrated responses or I rolls. But at the point where Donald Trump made his comment about how many women had been elected, which was really a moment. She got up and applauded Donald Trump for that. When in fact, one might argue the reason there are as many women elected as there are today was because of the strong position that so many women have taken since the election of Donald Trump. So I suppose he could be applauded for that. Because he's a he's a bit of a cause for it. But that growth in the number of women in in the congress was actually in opposition to Donald Trump, not not because of him, right? But the Democrats decided I guess under the leadership of Pelosi indicating to look like the dignified party last night and avoid taking Trump's bait to overreact. Which after all is exactly his and Steve Bannon playbook, that's entirely, right? And I think that it was a successful move. One of the things that's happened. With all the people who doubted, Nancy, Pelosi's strength and vigor in. Ability to do her job in a lot of the new progressives in congress felt that it was time for somebody else. Somebody younger the the skirmishes with Donald Trump since she's become speaker seemed to have invigorated her by some accounts, she won round one by forcing Donald Trump's hand into and then out of the shutdown and with a just over a week to go until we may have another one she seems to be in a strong position. So I think they are really hoping not to compromise with sideshows that that occupy the media. No, Joe Wilson moment for a state of the union. Another contrast last night was that Trump never mentioned the government shutdown. Stacey Abrams did like this making lively livelihood of our federal workers upon for political games is a disgrace the shutdown with a stunt engineered by the president of the United States. One that defied every Tenet of fairness and abandoned not just our people, but our values and here's another state. Abrahams clip that also shows how never mind what the solutions are the two parties can't even agree on what the problems are. Let's be clear voter suppression is real. From making it harder to register and stay on the rolls to moving and closing polling places to rejecting lawful ballots. We can no longer ignore these threats to democracy. So Anita KOMO from politico to hear Stacey Abrams, our central problems revolve around inequality rigged, even more by the Trump tax Bill. She used the word rigged while to Trump inequality was never mentioned and our problems come mostly from immigrants, Iran and socialism. How you hear the contrast and its political implications. Yeah. I mean, definitely there were certain things. I mean, there were two totally different totally different things that they focused on, you know, Stacey Evans also mentioned two things about gun. She had many things that she mentioned that he didn't mention at all, and you and you hit a couple of those. But this was what the president wanted to. This is what he's going to campaign on. This is what he wants to push for the next year. He he dealt a lot with immigration, but not the repercussions of that meeting, the shutdown and a lot of people pretty upset about that. A lot of Democrats were upset about it. I know Senator Mark Warner who represents Virginia a lot of federal workers. I thought we were supposed to here so Lucien to this impasse, which there might be another government shutdown in another week or so, but we didn't hear that part. So, you know, the the White House had assured us last week that he would offer a bipartisan way forward that was there. Were there words on this possibility of a shutdown how to fund the wall, or do whatever they want to do to make a deal, but we didn't hear that particular part of it? No. In fact, he invoked bipartisanship and unity at the very beginning of the speech, and then went on to give kind of a typical Trump nationalist address, not that he's the only politician ever to invoke unity as an abstract idea. And then go on to appeal to his base. But he certainly did that last night. So for both of you, and Anita I as a matter of political analysis who were they each talking to last night. Did you think that Trump was primarily doing what he usually does just trying to stoke the fires of his base that thirty five percent or whatever it is to keep them, loyal and inflamed? Or was he trying to, cultivate, any kind of? A bigger audience with this big platform before he went for reelection presumably in twenty twenty on the Stacey Abrams side, I've heard so much analysis that they picked her to encourage her to run for US Senate from Georgia in twenty twenty. But I feel like it must also be more than that. The Democratic Party establishment wanted Stacey Abrams out there. To look certain way or to deliver a certain message or some combination. So who who do you think he was actually trying to address? Sure, I think the president had two different speeches in one. Right. Maybe that's why eighty minute. I mean, he definitely wise had moments where he was talking to his base that immigration talk with what he has talked about before his talk about trade and China ending endless wars. I mean, those are the things that he's talked about for a long time. He talked about in twenty sixteen. He's talked about the first two years, and those are things that member piece of people that are, you know, have been supportive of him want to hear any plans on campaigning on that. But there were definitely moments where he tried to appeal to other people, and those were the more patriotic moment if you will that you were talking about talking about the holocaust survivor. And the little girl who had brain cancer. I mean, there were definitely those feel good moments that you're used to in the state of the union address. But is that going to resonate beyond? You know, a few hours another day. That's how long the state of the union. We'll probably be around tomorrow. We'll be talking about something else. I don't think that that's going to he may have tried to appeal to a broader off. But I don't think it's going to last because this is President Trump the next day today. He'll be off doing something else. They'll be disparaging someone or until someone or tweeting about something. They just announced that he's having his I make America great again rally Monday in Texas. No, I think, you know, by by the first this year, he'll be he'll be off, you know, doing more of a parties in parties and talk, but it was an interesting speech because it was a little bit of both. We Stacey Abrams. It was clear that they the Democratic Party thinks that she is a rising star. I heard all sorts of last night about how this woman should run for president. And that she really has a future in the party. But you're right. It is someone that the the type of person it was her message was good. But they also wanted to portray a type of person, right? This is someone win working class roots. She she said that she went between I think middle class and working poor. And she that beginning of her speech described that her biography, and what it was like growing up and things that she's learned from her family. And I thought they, you know, the Democratic Party thinks that she has a good message to share about the values that they want to represent now L E L she same. Yes. So I think that whenever I hear who's giving the response it always gives me a little chill because that that can be the kiss of death. That is just as often worked against somebody as for them..

All dead inside the Trump women. No, these are hard line conservative types. Right. The president can kill anybody. He wants the president talked about shooting people on Fifth Avenue. I mean, this is ingesting data president could could beat up a first lady and not be indicted for that could sexually abused or children and not be indicted for that could do the most heinous of things and never been dying. I mean, what is your job? Our job is to get the facts, we crave the truth. We value the truth, you crave for the truth. Like, I crave for a veggie burger a black bean veggie burger, you guys wouldn't know what to do with the truth his organizations need to hold tight.

Wouldn't that be thing if we had a civil war? War in America. That would just be crazy. Don't see that on the air. What are you doing? Oh, three Joe and make it did get married to this year. So it's somewhat makes that bless gross kind of not really the context of that. I'd almost want to give it he tried to hold her hand. Now, if we broaden it out from Joe and Mika there's plenty of other complete lunatics who work at MSNBC going back towards the beginning of the year. There was this clip that I really like Stephanie rule an alley Vel sheet, you know, Chelsea Belgian he's the Baldy with the glasses and these a little weird up and they were talking about Trump arriving at Davos for a big diplomatic whatnot. And they were talking about how he was greeted when he entered the room and Allie Vel, she I guess took it a little too far and had to back back a little because he told the truth. But you saw what happened when the president came in? You know, people had their phones they were taking pictures at a rock concert. Frankly now that is not to say that it was a warm welcome. It was to say it was like a rock star. Welcome in that while everybody wanted to see Donald Trump. It was a warm Okamoto's rockstar. Welcome a warm, welcome. You know, how these Rockstars are often welcomed in a very cold emotionless way, except everyone wants to see them and pushes people out of the way to meet them. You know, like Rockstars do and Stephanie rule got a little hung up on rockstar thing. We should point out. It may be a rockstar caliber reception. There's a rockstar as president no leather pants, shredding t shirt. He's still in his classic statement. Blue today, not a red wine. That's right. The to Dallas. I don't think anyone's imagining the president coming to Davos and leather except for seventy rule because that's weird. I'm just saying like to her rockstar equals leather pants. I get that connective tissue. But she really got stuck on. She is I think daily picturing, Donald Trump and leather pants. Just saying and another alley bell. She here with Adam Schiff, Adam shiftless, Chris Plante, calls them the mural familiar with his many deeds, and they were talking about. Well, let's let me play this first and see if you can guess like it's one of these everyone will remember where they were when Trump destroyed the country be one of those days where all Americans are gonna remember exactly where they were when they heard that press conference taking place congressman Adam Schiff, thanks for making the time.

He's so good at this. The US has made a breakthrough with Mexico which the president is describing away at odds with reality while also threatening candidate in a way. His negotiators might just ignore Trump's super casually said he'll be terminating the existing deal until we hear more. I'd be skeptical, but he's actually doing that. It is very clear that he does not know what he's talking about and that he's making this up as he goes. I expected Trump to oversell and miss sell what has happened, but he has exceeded my expectations and was bugging me as a side note here is that it despite this, every news organization is reporting this as a trade deal. It is still even today Reuters put out trade deal that it is not a deal. It is is a pre pre amble for a free deal? Yeah, it's it's not a deal. It's it's an outline sort of maybe it's like it's like what he did with everything else with with North Korea with everything he does is it sounds like he's, he says, it's a deal.

"The bull on Wall Street is running toward history. The s. and p. five hundred hidden all time high today and tomorrow marks three thousand four hundred and fifty three days since the index hit a low point in March of two thousand nine depending on how you measure it will be the longest bull run ever in the US edging out the historic gains of the nineteen. Ninety s joining us now is Allie Vel she MSNBC anchor and economics correspondent Holly hey, Jeremy. I'm a little jealous of Austin by the way. I know it is a lovely, lovely city, great place. There are a lot of factors behind this bull market, but you know, when you look at it, low interest rates, boom in technology companies, the president's tax cuts. Is it all of the above yet? It's all of the above. I would say though that the low interest rates is the biggest part of it because the one thing that's been a constant for the last nine years has been the low interest rates and what that ends up doing because I interest rates went solo. They were. They were close to zero. The net effect is that interest bearing investments are of no value. So people who otherwise would find the stock market risky really had nowhere else to go because we put your money in a Bank. You would actually be losing money, vis-a-vis inflation. So of all of the factors, and they're all significant low interest rates. And that's something is coming to an end. Now has been the most important factor in this bull run. Now some people would say a record high in the stock market. Great. And some people might look at that say, oh, we're in trouble. Yeah, and I think both can be true. This is a long bull run of the market. It's not the highest. It's not the biggest gains. This rally has been three thousand four hundred fifty two days long. It's been a three hundred twenty two percent increase, but it's not as long or as high as other rallies have been. But really when you look at stocks, you should be looking at what they cost relative to how much the company's earn and the the PE ratio. Right now. That's what it's called. The price. Earnings ratio stands at nine teen. The long term average is seventeen point six. So one might say compared to history, it's a little high, but in two thousand when the market popped it was at twenty six or nineteen. Long-term average is under eighteen. The really extreme views are twenty six. What does this mean for people who do not have money invested in the stock market? Not a whole lot about half of Americans have money invested in the stock market, but even that's a bit of misrepresentation because most of the money in the stock market is held by a very small percentage of people who are actually investor. So about ten percent of the population really gets most of the gains in the stock market, it's still remains on the in the long term, the best way to make money that isn't your normal source of income. But I would say this that, you know it's getting a little long in the tooth and everybody should know how to sign into their account that holds their 401K or their IRA because you do have to. Look at it and rebalance it every now and then so that when a downturn inevitably comes, you're in a bit of a good position. You've at least taken some of your winnings off the table. We'll and one of the worries right now is the trade war, especially the trade war with China. There's gonna be a meeting tomorrow. US and Chinese officials are sitting down, excuse me today for the first time in months to talk about the tariffs. I just in the thirty seconds. We have you think there's going to be a deal. I think they both understand both China and the United States of this is not going to be good for either economy in the long term. So something has to be done. But you know, this is escalated to quite a degree. It could actually threaten markets. I'm not sure I'd hold my breath for an immediate solution to this Alabel bell.

"Welcome back on the last thing before we go on a monday night is trouble on the other side of the atlantic when you think about it it was the brexit vote two years ago that was our first big indication that we might be witnessing something of a prairie fire as we near the end of the second decade of this new century if our times have indeed just been redefined as a battle between norms and tearing down those norms whether to stay in the home we've built or burn it down then you could argue that it all started with brexit which like the trump election months after that was the first vote that stunned the establishment when the people of the uk voted to leave the eu two years later that hasn't happened because decoupling is complicated the choice before the uk appears to be somewhere between full on divorce versus staying good friends versus staying together for the sake of the kids well tonight the government of the prime minister theresa may is in trouble and so two is brexit theresa may has suffered some cabinet resignations most notably this morning the foreign secretary boris johnson resigned now respectfully to americans who don't follow uk politics closely he may be more widely referred to as the guy with the hair johnson is a bona fide intellectual and icon a class in a big backer of brexit he is worried the prime minister is too attached to the eu the prime minister has filled the vacancies to her cabinet but she must now watch her flank as leader of the conservative party it's been said by headline writers for the better part of the last two years at remains true breaking up is hard to do and it's less certain tonight for the eu and the uk and a reminder our president is due to arrive in the uk this coming thursday so that is our broadcast for us tonight my thanks to my friend steve kornacki and allie vel shoot for allowing me to sneak away from here for a few days are thanks to you for being here with us and good night from nbc news headquarters here in new york.

"The federal deficit is expected to soar past one trillion dollars in twenty twenty according to a new report from the congressional budget office and in the next ten years the country's debt will be almost as great as its entire annual economic output this is the latest cbo assessment after republicans passed a one point five trillion dollar tax cut last year and since both parties agreed to a one point three trillion dollar spending bill last month so what are the implications of so much debt let's bring in allie vel she he's msnbc anchor and economics correspondent he's also co host avila she in rural alley welcome back it's good to have you as i go to talk to you so let's be fair and just say that there were trillion dollar deficits in the obama administration but we'll get to that we can talk about it but there's also been some reporting in the past day or so that suggests the looming death that the cbo is describing could trigger an economic crisis in the coming years what are you hearing let's give a little perspective one is obviously the deficit is one year shortage in the debt is the accumulation of all of those shortages what the cbo is saying is that economic growth is going to average one point nine percent per year for the next ten years now that's very different during the campaign president trump was promising four five and six percent and his people have routinely been saying three percent one point nine percent is not terrible a mature economy it just less than what the president has been promising so that's the issue we're going to have lower economic growth than we thought and the tax cuts caused cost money so they're going to add one point six trillion dollars to the deficit the promise has been all the strong economic growth will offset that and won't be as bad as that well what the congressional budget office is saying is that it will be as bad as so it's not that was not part of the promise by the way the report projects that interest rates because of this are likely going to rise could you walk us through that is it because that once you get huge deficits you start turning on the end.
