Whitehouse Trade Advisor Peter Navarro says Democrats or treating workers as hostages so they can negotiate a massive stimulus deal. Navarro tells Fox News President Trump wants to see action now on enhanced unemployment benefits. The administration and Democrats are at an impasse as they try to put together another Corona virus stimulus Bill President Trump Against concerns that his administration could ban Tic TAC, the popular social media APP. Microsoft has expressed interest in buying Tic Tac. On our Komal news line this morning, maybe sees Catherine Faulder's Catherine. Good Morning. Good morning. You're right. The president told reporters on Friday that he plans to ban Tic tac in the United States through executive authority and just to give The listeners of sense here of the concern. The administration has this APP, which allows users to film in chair short videos of themselves along to accompany music. It's owned by the Chinese company called Fight Dance, and This relationship has caused the Trump Administration. As well as lawmakers across the side of the aisle, both Republicans and Democrats to accuse this act of being a security threat. We heard from the White House chief of staff last months talking about this Mark Meadows, he said. There's a number of administration officials are looking at the national security risk as it relates to Tic Tac and a couple other app that he mentioned, he said, specifically as it relates to the gathering of information. On American citizens by a foreign adversary. So that's the main concern that the administration has here. You mentioned that Microsoft, the U. S based company is looking to buy Tic Tac.

He would take action on Saturday. We still haven't heard from him on this. There appears to be negotiations going on behind the scenes between Microsoft And the White House. Microsoft, in a statement confirms that their CEO has spoken to the president and they said they understand his concerns and that Microsoft is committed their statements requiring picked out Subject to a complete security review, so we'll have to see what comes of those conversations. Does the president actually have the power to ban an APP? It's a good question. So many legal experts that I've been reading that while he might not just have that blanket authority to say Sorry. I'm completely banning that. What he does have the power to do is punish them. Hey, can sanction tic tac or bite dance, the company that owns pick talk, for example. So the tools the executive tools that he has, While he might not be able to say we're not having in the United States anymore, he could take severe action against them, which the administration has that previously with other China based companies that they believe we're posing a security risk. Now, if the U. S did ban pick talk, for example, we wouldn't be the first major country to do so. India actually banned the APP in late June. Catherine Thanks for the update this morning.

"Thanks for making this part of your day, third day of August. Frank lenses that the editor's desk Greg has the day off Amanda Factor. Congressional Democratic leaders and Trump Administration officials will continue talks today after making little progress on a Corona virus relief package over the weekend. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have spent days negotiating with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and White House chief of staff Mark Meadows over the weekend. Pelosi made it clear she has no interest in a one week extension of the $600 unemployment supplement that expired on Friday. California Congresswoman Karen Bass tells NBC's meet the press. Her breath of experience makes you ready to be just one heartbeat away from the presidency. Bass is reportedly one of Joe Biden's potential vice presidential pick. So I have worked across racial lines. I've worked across political lines and I have focused on really my goal, which is to Get work done on behalf of the American people. ABC News Political analyst Steve Roberts is with us this morning. Morning, Steve Good morning. And you know, Karen Bass is definitely on the short list. But the problem here is that hardly anybody knows who she is. I mean, I'm willing to bet anybody listening to us. Maybe 1% knows who carried passes. She is chairman of the Black Caucus in the Congress. She's very well regarded. But that's the problem. You know? How did you take someone who's never run beyond one small congressional district in Southern California and coach them up to run a national campaign in a matter of weeks? I mean, it's just a few weeks before Labor Day in the campaign flips into fast forward, and that's the problem with so many of the people who are by the short list and the only person who really Has running their show campaign and who has the experience is Senator Harris of California was run statewide number of times First Attorney general and Senator she did run for president. She didn't run a particularly good campaign. But I think that as the campaign evaluates the possibilities of the fact that she has that experience is gonna weigh heavily with him. Do you think she's going to be the pick? I do? Um, I think it has to be a black woman, so I would eliminate Elizabeth Warren. He's also too old anyway in her seventies, the whoever is picked Amanda Is not only going to be the vice presidential candidate. She is going to be the leader of two major shifts in the Democratic Party. One is generational remember during the campaign for the leading Democratic candidates for president. Biden, Warren Sanders. Bloomberg There were all over 70. The Democratic Party has a weak bench when it comes to the next generation. Whoever is nominated as vice president automatically becomes the leader of the next generation. There's also a huge demographic shift. Ah, taking place when Ronald Reagan was elected president. The electorate was 88% white. It was 70% in the last election, and every campaign going forward. The percentage of white voters is going to continue to drop. So whoever is picked not only runs this fall, but as a leader of a major shift in Democratic Party. That's why the choice is so important. As you mentioned we only have a few months before Election Day. How will this change the race if it all? Depends on who the candidate is. But I think the single most important thing that Democrats are hoping for is that this pic energizes the African American vote. That's why I think it's almost certainly has to be an African American. Look, there are white candidates who are very highly regarded Senator Baldwin of Wisconsin governor with more of Michigan, with the pressures of building too important to the Black lives matter movement This week, 50 black clergyman wrote a letter to by insisting that's their words, insisting that the choice being African American, and it's absolutely central The Democratic hopes to maximize the turnout of black voters. One of the key reason Hillary couldn't lost was even though she got 89% of the black vote at 94% of black women. They didn't turn out in the same numbers as they had for Barack Obama. Democrats want to reverse that It's going to be absolutely critical in swing states like Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania. And that's what they that's the main thing they wanted to accomplish with this pick. All right, Steve, thanks for your time is always ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts. Come.

"Personal ties off today. Amanda Factor. Corona virus cases, they're still soaring with the US setting a new record. Yesterday, Florida alone accounted for more than 15,000 cases, pushing its total to just under 270,000 cases since the outbreak began. President Trump is encouraging police to take a stronger stand with what he calls radical left politicians. The president took to Twitter this morning to say never in history have police been treated so badly as they are in Democrat run cities Cities, which he said are a mess. New polling finds political polarization continuing to rise ahead of the 2020 election. Let's go to our camo news line, ABC News Political analyst Steve Roberts is with us. Good morning, Steve Money Man on your right and covers 20 years, So we have a lot of data turn line interesting among Republicans. The percentage that calls themselves conservative has moved from 50% to 70%. On the Democratic side, not quite so pronounced with still estate chef to the left. Ah, now 43% of Democrats call themselves liberals, up 12 points. And polarization is a cliche. We know that I think it has many, many factors, including the way people get information about politics. They're getting it from social media. They're getting it from Echo chambers that we enforce the prejudices not from Neutral observers like Walter Cronkite, But the other implication of this brand is hollowing out of the U. S senate there eventually. No moderates left. You have The Very vibrant tradition of Northeast Republicans from New England. They used to be 34 or five of them. They were the deal makers they were the pragmatist is only one left. Susan Collins of Maine see faces of very difficult reelection night. They used to be a lot of, uh, moderate to conservative Democrats from the South. And there's only one of them left that stuck Jones of Alabama, he's almost certain Children. So you want to know why the Senate has been so paralyzed in the face of so many problems in recent years. The survey gives you want answers. Do you see us digging out of this divider? Is this just how things are now? Well, I always believe that There's nothing permanent in politics. You know, everybody is quick to say this is a permanent chef's a permanent realignment, and it turns out 5 10 years later. It's just back and And the reason for this is for you for two reasons. One is despite these numbers. America is still basically a moderate country. The 40% of Americans call themselves moderates, and that is still where the center of gravity is in American politics. But the fact is that these voices on the extremes both the left and the right to get magnified that get amplified on social media. That's the nature of social media. Donald Trump has proven that The more outrageous and edgy and even nasty you are, the more people pay attention to your social media, but I don't think this is necessarily a permanent change. The most powerful Phrase in American politics is it's time for a change. Americans are always looking for something new. In the end, Every every trend gets reversed except expansion of the franchise celebrating the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage rights movement, highlighting that march toward more access to the ballot box by African Americans. That change is permanent. But otherwise everything changes in politics. We always enjoy chatting with you. Thank Steve ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts.

threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit more energy I think the campaign line about I'm the candidate of those who have been left behind it counted out is a defective and powerful line really echoes of a bill to written of nineteen ninety two the comeback kid although Biden's hardly a kid he's more the comeback teaser than the comeback kid and also this line of of of appealing to the concepts of dignity and civility and normalcy I think they provide a fairly stark contrast to the president who's in the oval office now but Biden is still Biden it was all of his flaws but at this point he's the Democrats best hope and it's gonna be very difficult for Sanders to capture Steve thanks for your thoughts again this morning ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts it's also worth noting that this morning one of the former

"Frank Lenzi is at the editor's desk. Greg has the day off. Amanda factor. There will be no additional punitive measures against Saudi Arabia over the killing of Washington Post journalist, Jamal kashogi, President Trump says while the US does not condone the killing he's not canceling one hundred ten billion dollars in arms sales to destroy the world economy, and I'm not going to destroy the economy for our country by being fully with Saudi Arabia ABC's. Karen Travers joins us from the White House on the KOMO Newsline. Karyn good morning. Good morning. So the president really lengthy statement about Saudi Arabia, simply titled America first yesterday and reaction was quite swift. It was in the president then follow that up with comments on camera here at the White House. He took a lot of questions, and you know, he is a lot of criticism from Republicans to and Republicans have been really tough demanding. The president do more to punish Saudi Arabia. But the president certainly making it clear yesterday. He's not going to cave to those demands. The president called that statement America first, but the scene reaction from Republicans like rand Paul who say it read like Saudi Arabia. I not America first. Bob, corker Republican. But also a critic of the president said it was a press release for Saudi Arabia, not for the United States. The president doubling down this morning on Twitter saying that there is just too much economically financially at stake with oil prices and weapons sales for him to jeopardize the US Saudi relationship. But it's also another example of the president not taking an intelligence assessment, and believing what an ally has denied to him the CIA Cording to the Washington Post says the crown prince of Saudi Arabia ordered the killing of Jamal kashogi the president said yesterday, maybe he did maybe he didn't. There is no sign the president will waiver on this certainly not right now. It'd be hard to see him backing down from this that said a couple of weeks ago in the immediate aftermath of the kashogi murder. The president was talking much tougher that whoever was behind this. This was a terrible thing they should be punished. And now with all signs pointing to the crown prince being the one behind this. He is much much lighter on what he wants to do big news that came out yesterday, the New York Times reporting that earlier this year, the president told his White House lawyer that he wanted to prosecute Hillary Clinton and the former FBI director James Comey. What's the fallout from that? This is certainly something the president vowed to do while he was campaigning for the White House. He has recently talked about using the Justice department to go after James Comey. But the New York Times says that the White House counsel at the time, Don Mcgann scuttled the president's request to move forward on this. The White House legal team wrote a memo warning the president that prosecuting political enemies would have very significant consequences and could spark talk of impeachment up on Capitol Hill. This of course comes as the. Presidents really facing a lot of criticism from Democrats who are now, of course, in charge of the house in January because of forcing Jeff Sessions to step down as the attorney general and appointing Matt Whitaker to lead the Justice department. We know that Whitaker has expressed significant skepticism about the Muller investigation. Well, the first family is now in Florida's air anything public on the agenda for the president nothing for the next couple of days. He's going to spend the long holiday weekend with family. I think you can expect he will hit the golf course. Sunny, Florida and also tweet ABC's Karen Travers, do you get a break for the holiday? I hope I'll get a little bit. But I'll be here tomorrow and Friday, happy thanksgiving. Thanks to ABC's. Karen Travers with us from the White House. Komo news time five twenty. Trying to get to our propel insurance money update. Is it a correction or something more serious? Well, that depends on who you ask. Economists say.
