ByteDance Says It Won. Trump Says Not So Fast. TikTok Continues For Now.

"Okay, here's what I can tell you. You can still use tiktok as of this moment president trump since we last spoke said he approved Oracle's bid for the US. Operations of tiktok quote in concept, and so essentially the US delayed the planned tick tock band by about a week as Oracle Walmart looked to take a twenty percent stake in Tiktok globals planned pre IPO round as well as of course, the deals to host talks us user data and computer systems quoting Bloomberg I approve the deal and concept trump told reporters Saturday as he left the White House for a campaign rally in Fayetteville north. Carolina if they get. It done. That's great. If they don't, that's okay too and quote the new company which will be called tiktok global has agreed to funnel five billion dollars in new tax dollars to the US and set up a new education fund which trump said would satisfy his demand that the government receive a payment from the deal quote they're going to be setting up a very large fund. He said that's their contribution that I've been asking for an quote Oracle plans to take a twelve point, five percent stake in the new tiktok level. While Walmart said, it has tentatively agreed to by seven point, five percent of the entity. Walmart's. Officer Doug Macmillan will serve on tiktok global's board of directors. The retailer said in a statement for of the five board seats will be filled by Americans according to the statement tic TACs. Owner Bite dance is seeking evaluation of sixty billion dollars for the APP, according to a person familiar with the matter Oracle and Walmart would pay a combined twelve billion dollars for their stakes. If they agreed to that asking price, the final valuation has not been set as the party's worked out the equity structure and measures data security. The person said terms are still in flux and the proposed valuation could still change and quote. Yet more about that flex in a second but more about that five billion dollar payment to the government. The president mentioned I. Guess That's the key money by another name that he was asking for all along except that seems to have come as news to at least most of the parties involved Oracle later confirmed it to a degree but quoting Dan primack on twitter. More about tiktok quote Payments Number One the Education Fund is not to fun trump's patriotic history project number two, the five billion dollar figure is not codified anywhere and no one expects it to be anywhere near that big number three, the five billion dollars to the Treasury is anticipated payroll taxes over an unspecified period. Of Time, there will be an education focused effort using tick tock short video format distribution tool, but there is no dollar amount tied to it with trump seeming to inflate the payroll tax figure with the Education Fund remember Tick Tock doesn't have five billion dollars at least not until its IPO wants to complete within twelve months and quote. So. Again has this all been Kabuki theatre make the president think he's getting his key money. Give a politically connected firm, a sweetheart deal, and even if the five billion dollars is really not going to be five billion dollars again, we have the president of the government forcing the investment of private property, giving it to favourite entity and essentially asking for a kickback exactly. What happens in Banana Republics Super? Oh and about that whole thing being inflex bite dance. This morning was asserting that it is maintaining majority ownership and control over tick tock global and will not transfer any source code or technology to Oracle or Walmart so essentially waving a flag saying they won. Quoting the Financial Times bite that set on money that it would maintain majority ownership and control of tiktok global contradicting statements by Donald trump oracle, and Walmart after it agreed a deal with the companies to continue operating in the US Oracle, the US technology group, and Walmart, the world's biggest bricks and mortar retailer said in a joint statement at the weekend that Tiktok level would be majority owned by American investors and quote however while they're state combined with the equity held by. Long standing US investors by dance might mean, American investors would be the biggest financial beneficiaries, direct majority ownership and control of the business is set to remain with the Chinese company in a statement released on January tat chow by dances Chinese social media platform. The company said tiktok global would be a quote one, hundred percent fully owned subsidiary. The company added that after raising funds ahead of a potential initial public offering, it would have an eighty percent stake in the company and quote. So maybe that wasn't a good thing to go spouting off about because this either means now the deal is really off. Because the Chinese side really doesn't want it or else the deal is off because the president isn't going to be pleased about that more in just one second or else everyone is just GonNa declare victory and. Meaningful has actually changed my money's on that but hard to tell at this point because to conclude. About thirty minutes ago. President trump. said, he would not approve a tick tock deal bite dance ceded control, and well I don't know.

"Bulgaria is a small and mysterious country. It's one of those lands that Americans just don't visit very much. It's long faced east impact in communist times it was famously subservient to the USSR. But. Of course, there's lots more to see in Bulgaria and you can learn about a fascinating culture. When you go there to Bulgarian guides, joined us in our studio to help give us a better insight and a little better appreciation of the cultural. Bulgaria. We're joined by Stephan Bush job and you're. Stephanie thanks for being here. Thank you our pleasure now. Americans we don't know as much about Bulgaria as we know about Poland or Germany or Italy, or Greece that. It's not in the news it's signing country of about seven million people probably, not not a lot of Bulgarians have emigrated to the United States like Polish people. So many know when I think of Bulgaria I think of a back in the communist times a little country that was more friendly with Moscow, than the other countries in eastern Europe in fact, your leader little sort of an communist dictator two-door shifts of Shipka He. Actually proposed that Bulgaria joined the USSR and become the Sixteenth Republic. Is that true that? Yes that's still in the early nineteen sixties shifts for wanted us to be so close to the Soviets. So he proposed to become the sixteen republic. Why so subservient? The USSR you know because as a small country, we have always tried to find our big brother because you're right there in the middle of the Habsburgs and Russia and and. The meat of all those crossroads and your. Little so easy to gobble up if you're a big giant country absolutely, but fortunately, the Soviets were in the middle of the Cuban missile crisis saw they were busy and they were not interested in having trouble themselves Khrushchev or whoever was the dictator say There's a joke in becan communist time. The biggest animal in the world was the Bulgarian pig because the head was in Bulgarian. The body was in Moscow I. Was that funny. So many years ago he mentioned the pick when you have the body of the pick of the good meat is there. So we produced Oh the good stuff food and it was expected to the Soviet. Union. So practically, this is the reason why still nowadays in Russia they remember all those fruits and very funds legal, Gary, all good stuff that came from Bulgaria. So the big shot in Moscow and wind as well. Of course, all the Bulgarian wine. Oh, the best bogere in one when Russia. Well today you don't have that problem. You've got wonderful traditional food and drink and and Yuri. What is one thing we should remember about the food of Bulgaria when we visit incredibly fresh everything is fresh. What's been out of the garden? What's IT traditional? A traditional meal I I remember some beautiful soups. You must have a salad. You must argue with Salads and a little bit of Brandy. As world it goes with the Salads. We always have the strong alcohol first, and then we go to the wine and then we go to the beer you start with the strong alcohol yes, we do. We do. Why is that Stephan? It is deep tradition. What my parents belief is that when we have a trunk alcohol to open your perceptions the food, this is the best way to taste it when you have a few sips of follow traditional. Brandy. Code. Of Akia. So when I'm cooking, if people have the strong alcohol, I can actually eat my food. It helps it helps a lot. Gary is the only country in the European Union that has this surreal alphabet I was in Bulgaria when you're on May twenty fourth, that's big celebration. Why does Bulgaria have this unique alphabet and what's the cultural background of that? I remember that day because we were actually fuming Bulgaria episode into our in my hometown. So it is really important to understand these different alphabet because this is an alphabet which helped to spread the Christianity because it's surreal religious named after Saint. And who was his side and his brother Metallica's Methodius and Cyril. So they innovated this alphabet so they could write down the holies holy scripture scriptures and people could read them exactly in idea to have the Christianity. Kuo's to the heart close the.

This was meant to avoid a hard border with the Irish Republic, which remains part of the e you many Brits were unhappy with it, but the deal was agreed and turned into a treaty under the second stage. Britain's had a transition period of the year in which to negotiate a new trade deal with the block that period is drawing to a close negotiations of gone well, and the British government. This week tried to change its commitment on Northern Ireland in parliament, the Northern Ireland, Secretary Brandon Lewis made a startling.

All the biggest announcements from Ubisoft's Forward event

"Forward was yesterday a bunch of stuff got announced. We want to give you a recap of it. immortals. Phoenix rising was revealed of course, gods and monsters re renamed redone. It's covering the December third I. It's coming to deep breath playstation for playstation five, xbox one series series s switch PC. An Stadia on December third stadium however is getting demo before launched that'll be exclusive. Stadia it'll be a unique island. It's coming sometime later this year before December third busing you liked what you play this game yeah. No I enjoyed it like I've said this before, but it's basically you be Saas version breath wild and I think that very much shows each and every way where you have so many of the mechanics and ideas from breath while the climbing and like the the they have a shrine Like replacement in in Gaza and immortals Phoenix rising, they have the open world that is filled with puzzles and all this stuff play lot somewhere at ease. But then also if you'll. If. You'll structured like a Yousof game and I was actually talking to my roommate Michael about this last night. But he was very much like seems like breath breathalyzer came out and it it copied a lot of what you saw is doing and we saw Admiral Hey we can be. Doing I feel like that's a pretty apt way to put it almost when you look at the towers and stuff breath wild. Stuff manifest this. Game though has me excited. For I'm. Coming to next Gen, I think is exciting. I N necessarily expected not to, but this plus came out in. February and so I think I had the question of all right what does this release look like and so that's an exciting thing I. wonder if it looks better, I wonder how I wonder what the differences between the two skews It also coming to switch is really exciting because I was thinking they revealed that surprise me you know especially with the breadth of wild similarities that coming to switch I think is going to be interesting for that audience to see how people will take to it whether people flocked to order people are put off to put off by it. I. My my thing in this isn't me knocking it right breath. The wild part of that game I thought was the journey across the island and making it feel like you're making big steps watching What we saw last night from Phoenix rising. It seemed like traversing the island in getting around seemed quicker. Is that an apt description or is that just what made to look like? I think that's apt but I also wonder how late in the game that is because when I jumped in halfway through I, wonder if we're at the beginning of the game, does heal a lot slower because that is my thing with breath to you a breath breath the wild. One. Of The wild one. Breath wild felt like one of the biggest open world games I played even though it probably like in scale of the map, it probably isn't as like it probably isn't that big you know in reality but the way in which they approach like that journey aspect of it makes it feel like it's huge near exploring all these different things in that like you know you really feel like you're going. Through journey because you're kind of exploring that world slowly and meticulously, and you know, they give you the the paraglider thing early in the game breath wild Ryan so like they give you some of those those those tools to explorer in like go through the island quicker. But even even with that Econo, still feel like you're tracking few and You know really getting everything out of the map. Immoral Phoenix rising when I was playing did feel a bit like quicker and did feel be onto the next thing right? You feel like you are going to the next class breath while didn't really have A. The has system, but it's not as traditional and strict as. A. Lot of other similar open World Games try immoral Phoenix rising does seem to have a quest system that is a bit stricter in terms of, hey, go do this thing called the next question? Do this thing called? The next. Which? I think a lot of people who may not have liked breath wild for that are going to like a moral phoenix rising for its structure. But I think that also means that you might be exploring this game at a particular pace is probably going to be a bit quicker. I don't think it is going to be the man. What is this? What we're here I'M GONNA I'M GONNA check this out like this who unique thing that you've never seen before that that that blows your mind I don't know how those moments you're gonna get but you are going to have like open world puzzles and things that are discoverable just maybe not on the level of breath. Wow. Okay I had zero hype for this game and then washing shows like Oh shit I'd like to play that and I think December's time for to after like the run to black Friday new consoles or out every starting to chill and settle for the holidays.

No. Yeah. This seems like it has a fun like it seems like a fun combination of quite a few ubisoft games. Right has a lot of steep in.

You know when you look at when you look at the colors i. I want to know more about what structure of the game is like. Is it battery Al is a like fog is, is it just you're doing a bunch of different activities that that scale based on how many players? There are ten players to thirty whatever I'm more curious about that. But from the stuff they show they show a game that was very similar to graffiti from Tony Hawk. Where graffiti is the game where like it's a multiplayer game where if you do a trick on a ramp or like on a grind or whatever yellow then color that the ramp or or the grind your color, and you are essentially doing as matrix all over the map as you can in order to take over the map versus your opponent almost kind of platoon ish in a way. They showed a game battle is very much that we've made me go. Oh, snap. All right. This seems like it has a lot in in terms of the different, the different ways in which you can have fun. So all about it looks cool. It looks like it's going to grow over time I'm surprised it's coming out so soon.

Brexit: Government refuses to drop plans to override parts of Brexit deal

"The U. K. left the European Union in January. It was possible to detect a faint sigh of relief even among those British people who thought the endeavor various combinations of reckless vainglorious, foolhardy, petulant, and self destructive at least and at last it was imagined. We now knew what we'd be dealing with a transition period some sort of new deal and a reduction of turbulence. The UK government this. Week announced it had other ideas planning to override sections of the withdrawal agreement. It had itself negotiated signed and won election on the back of joining me to attempt to identify what fresh hell. This is Naomi O'Leary. Your corresponded at the Irish Times and lands price former director of communications at ten Downing Street Naomi with all g recognition that there may be a number of answers to this question of varying degrees of decorum. What is the UK's government doing? Well, my understanding is that it's introducing an internal markets bill that will unpick. A couple of aspects that were agreed with the EU in order to avoid a border join across the arden. So this would include. Customs arrangements on state aid agreements on I mean by the UK's own admission because they rolled agreement was passed in his comments on signed by those sides it's international law. So this would be breaking international by their own admission. Let's. The as ninety points out the UK government has admitted that would be breaching international law. They did specify that it was a very limited and specific way. So that's fine. Apparently It's one of the great questions attending, Boris? Johnson. Administration. Is there a strategy discernible or are they just winging this? Was this always the plan basically? I think has to assume there is some sort of strategy but quite deliberately, it is so opaque that those looking in from the outside, find it very hard to discern what it is. That we may come to the end of this year to the end of December and look back and say, well, actually, there wasn't the strategy and they would just blundering white. You giving a very good impression of simply plunder their way through, but they are not stupid. And we assume that there is method to their madness. Now, about methods may simply to be as disruptive as possible this stage in in. In order to Let's try to secure the deal again today still with the intention of trying to get the deal to give you a new one. That I've spoken to or listen to seems to be able to determine which it is still time. That's it. It's never wanted to deal that looks away play the of European Union. They deliver take disrupted to the prospects of deal because frankly. Happy to go. Without one. But? What has the response to this development being in I mean we'll talk about the rest of the EU shortly but in Ireland in particular because for obvious reasons island republic, there was always going to be more affected by the fact of Brexit than any other EU country. I think initially an many people struggle to believe that this was really what the UK was doing that they were going to go through with this because you know a lot of figures in the civil service in government in Dublin have very long relationships with people in the UK with which have been constructive. kind of goes against the their experience of Britain so far to a large extent up. So I, think there was initially hesitant to overreact to kind of see, but once the bill was made public all. The really have reacted with shock because this this way more than the sort of Saber rattling that everyone expected in terms of talking up no deal on shouting might sovereignty and everything that was kind of priced in this really fundamentally to the heart of the. Western order. People don't. Respect international law. It kind of puts in question a lot of the assumptions that the current global order is based on. I'm just to name a few for example, the fact Gibraltar is still in UK Homs let's based on an international treaty that even though Spain doesn't like it. has accepted. And that's just one small example, the UK itself relies on this concept that. International treaties can't unilaterally changed by one side lawfully, it relies on it all the time. Lunch just to elaborate on that point of Naomi's might even if this is just a slightly devil-may-care negotiating gambling might have effects in the real world. Niamey mentions there the treaty of you tracked onto which spying grudgingly ceded sovereignty of Gibraltar to the United. Kingdom. But also within the last twenty, four hours, one almost admires the bras neck. We've seen the UK's foreign secretary reminding Iran of its international obligations. vis-a-vis, its nuclear treaty might this actually have real world impacts whether it is Gibraltar. Iran Hong Kong. A number of other places. I've been I think it might very well, not necessarily any other states would see this as a green light for them to reach national all all treaties that they have signed with the United Kingdom and other countries but set you going forward when it comes to trying to foam which agreements or whether it's trade agreements or security related agreements or whatever else it might be that the kingdom will be seen as an unreliable untrustworthy partner those. If, we say in terms that we are willing to break traditional goal this time that why should get any time in the future so we will see threats from the United States and. about about this, being a very significant roadblock to a free trade agreement with those countries. Now, we have just signed one with. Japan. He's just been announced that the United States go to preacher is leaving with Japan. It probably doesn't amount to us not which is government with like this. Super believe. But the standings of the United to International. has already been severely damaged, and that's why there's some very very senior figures in the Conservative Party former prime ministers, and little house. but the house tested deposits as well. Who say this is a statue. Niamey talks trade talks ideas due to resume on Monday, but especially bearing in mind. What Lance was just saying about the UK, turning itself into an increasingly on reliable interlocutor, and that's on top of the last few years of just extraordinary nonsense the has had to deal with is there a possibility or indeed? May We already have arrived at that point of the European Union basically losing patients with this entire thing? Obviously, the EU as twenty seven nations is probably more equipped to deal with the chaos of no deal than the UK is one nation. Right now, it's a bit of a game of chicken because I think neither side wants to be the one to call ice because they don't want to take the blame i. But yet they eat. You has given UK basically an ultimatum of the end of the month to reverse this plan. or they say that they will take legal recourses available under the withdrawal agreement I'm which include fines and things like that to try and bring the UK back in line Basically, they've been saying all year the an agreement relies on the past agreements being enacted and that's the fundamental trust is essential for anything being agreed and the reason they've been saying that I think because there was always a bit of a suspicion that something like this could. Happen though nobody wanted to believe it because the likes of ours Johnson on his cabinet ministers would occasionally say things that didn't make sense. The didn't fish with what they had agreed thing that there wouldn't be taxes on when they would be in the Irish Sea So I think the EU is going to wait and the they're they're not pulling out of the the talk. Yes. But the chance of them succeeding I, think in everyone's view with extremely spam at this point.

AstraZeneca pauses coronavirus vaccine trial, shares slip on rollout doubts

"No Work? No pay no food coronavirus lockdowns have forced many people all over the world to wonder where their next meal's will come from according to Matthew True. Scott Oxfam International's head of Humanitarian Policy About one hundred and twenty one million people have been pushed to the edge of starvation. This year not of course is across the main hotspots you would expect Yemen Democratic Republic of Congo of Gunston Venezuela, south. Sudan we're also seeing hunger coming up in otherwise middle income or developing countries. India South Africa Brazil CETERA. Look at a situation in the world where you have about sixty sixty, one percent working in the informal economy when that denied that daily income forced to stay at home they no longer get that income and that forces them into some of the negative coping strategies and that's what makes this crisis so unique. People. Couldn't travel to work which meant they couldn't make money and they couldn't buy food but this isn't just a short term problem. Is it Yeah and it has sort of long term impacts where, for instance, if you take people who are living day to day selling milk, if they can't sell milk for a few days, it gets point whether then have to do something to have food and income then have to sell their means of income. So selling the cow which had been providing them and then conquered back to generate income and same happens instead of urban areas where people who had been, for instance, taxi drivers after. So long of not being able to take fares and give taxi rights eventually then have to start selling off assets to cope and that's where we're really. Seeing potential long-term structural breakdown, and as you say, this is a problem that existed before the pandemic. So how do we tackle it this time around does it require new solutions? It does with sort of proposing three solutions. The I of course is that we need to increase humanitarian aid drastically the U. N. Global Humanitarian Appeal has called for about ten point, three billion dollars in humanitarian aid. But only about twenty, four percent of that is funded. So less than a quarter, the second thing that we can do is cancelled some of the debt that could free up up to a trillion dollars, and then of course, the final thing is. Exactly, as you say, we do need to change how system works. We need to build a more fair and more robust food system. We need to build a system that's ready to deal with the climate shocks that's able to produce sustainable food. One that supports a small-scale Farmers Informal Workers, Matthew Scott head of humanitarian policy at Oxfam International. Thanks for your time. Thank you so much

What we did that the mission was and it still taken very seriously to save the Republic to save this American Republic. Commissioner. Save the American public not just politically culturally and spiritually, and that's why I get as aggressive as I do. That's why Lindsey Graham just got us aggressive is he did on the Senate confirmation committee. Will you see it? He's on fire. He's on fire. He's talking Republicans should be talking pretty much every day take a lesson. It's unbelievable. Now, he's within the belly of the beast on the subject matter at hand. But his resolve anger around the Bs that's going on. That's pretty much how we approach it here because it is frustrating to see what could be done and what's not getting done. What could be done and isn't. Lee has to say Lee welcomed on the edge. I wanted to point out had mentioned here at during the press conference yesterday. I like the way Trump was taking over. He did not get the chance to start. Interruptions. Totalism play games Trump. He's he's a warrior, and that's that's needs take a lesson. Instead, they run from that they're terrified they go.

Who's the lesson to be learned well in this press conference instead when I go for reelection? I'm sure to get the backing of all the liberal press and media because one for me. Business pretty much.

"National international and local news tomorrow on morning edition. It's here. And now are we watching a soft coup? Or are we watching Republican Trump appointees cover their butts going to authors and newspapers instead of quitting and going public that op Ed in the New York Times from an anonymous conservative Trump appointee claims the president is acting in a manner detrimental to the Republic describes a quiet resistance in the president's inner circle people vowing to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while swatting Mr. Trump's misguided impulses until he's out of office. Then there's the forthcoming Bob Woodward book same claims, including a top aide stealing a policy letter off the president's desk. So it won't be implemented. Knowing Trump will forget it isn't that a coup. Let's bring in Julian zealots her professor of history and public affairs at Princeton University. Hi, julian. Hi, thanks for having me and David fromm staff writer at the Atlantic. Former George W Bush speechwriter longtime Trump critic author of the book Trump, accuracy, the corruption of the American. Republic. David welcome to you. Thank you so much, and I want to start with you you and others are writing it is a coup. But you say a cowardly and dangerous one. He just briefly make your case things will be worse after this op, Ed not better. The president's paranoia will be inflamed. It will be harder to give the president good advice against destructive action. The op Ed writer said we're here to thwart him. So the next time somebody says to President Trump don't do this or that unwise thing, and they are genuinely unwise things the president will thank is does this person have my interests at heart or not. And meanwhile, everyone in the administration will be hastening to produce profit professions of loyalty to the president independent thought will be even more snuffed out and the relatively normal people will be under greater suspicion and the time servers and weirdos will be empowered. Also, that's what you say will be the results of this. But Julian do you agree with the conclusion that it is a coup? Well, it isn't it isn't in that. It's clear that. Seems at least high level officials are working to subvert the president or to trick the president or to distract the president the president which I think David is reminding us still has power. So in some ways, it's the worst of all worlds. And that's why this is a inbetween situation where I do think the publication of the op Ed which I'm not sure what the aim really was of the person writing it will simply make matters that much more volatile the op-eds a little like the Republican congress these days. It's warning about what's going on. It's complaining a little bit about what's going on. But in the end, I'm not sure it's going to actually constrain the president. Well, but it seems to be to reassure the American people that there are as the writer says adults in the room who again are trying to thwart the presence every move. But as you both know others are writing that it's not a coup. It's cowardice your colleague, David Adam Serwer in the Atlantic. This isn't resistance. It's public relations. It's enabling it's Republicans positioning themselves to say, we told you so right. I think we shouldn't presume that the letter the author writer is necessarily a highly strategic person or has great judgment though, they might be lacking. Both those things they might not understand. But there is certainly a kind of self serving quality to this that the op Ed writer wants us to understand that the people in the Trump administration should not be regarded as pariahs and who's making that argument. We're all glad. James Mattis is on the job. The trouble is that many of the people in order to keep their position end up doing. Harmful things the question. It bothers me most is once people leave. Why are they more effective? I mean, we learned from Bob Woodward, Gary Cohn. It wasn't a policy letter that the practice. Nash off the president has it was literally a directive cancelling the US, South Korea free trade agreement an astonishingly disastrous self destructive thing the president. Then forgot all about it. If Gary Cohn knows I the president was contemplating second the president. So mentally impaired that you can you can remove a piece of paper like this from his desk. And he forgets all about it. Why Gary Cohn simply complaining about it? Bob, Woodward, months after the fact, why isn't he a front of a congressional committee? He giving speech at the council on foreign relations. Why is he saying this president is mentally impaired? He cannot remember his own policies five minutes after they disappeared from his Julian why isn't he as the operator said enacting the twenty fifth amendment? I mean, the writer says there were early whispers in the cabinet of invoking the twenty fifth. No one wanted to precipitate a crisis, and we're remembered the twenty fifth amendment nineteen sixty seven it allows for the removal of a president who can't fulfill his duties and obligations. They are describing a man who can't do that your thoughts. Well, well, that's right. There is a mechanism in place, and the op-ed even discusses the fact that this was contemplated. But they didn't want to precipitate what they say is a constitutional crisis. So they haven't moved forward with this. The cabinet has the ability to move forward with a recommendation. You know that the president isn't fit to serve and congress can allow this to to move forward and the vice president would take power, but they didn't do that. So what we have. Instead is I mean, you can think of the picture of this room full of officials taking things from the president, and and and trying to prevent him from taking actions. They are telling us are are dangerous. So I don't know what the answer is. But if what they say is true, then there's a strong argument that that mechanism should be invoked. It's a little like impeachment. The there are mechanisms that can be used. So I'm not sure why. If if this is true, they're not being used in the language, you know, people can Google, but whenever the vice president and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as congress may by law provide transmit to the Senate and the speaker of the house of representatives. They're written declaration that the president is unable to discharge the. Powers and duties of his office, then it kicks in this this mechanism and instead of taking it to congress. They're taking it as we said to authors and newspaper writers, but David they say that they are trying to keep the government afloat that they're they're trying to run a second track government, and they feel they're being patriotic. Look, we all think the relatively normal relatively honest relatively patriotic relatively uncompromised members of the Trump administration for their service. Obviously, it could be a lot worse. We're we're glad to have people who are trying to do their best. And who remember the great traditions of this country? But let's also understand how much harm is being done right now, we have a global trade war. We have NAFTA that is about to be dissolved. No thoughtful, South Korean can feel safe after learning that the president wants to abandon the defense of South Korea and wants to tear up view of South Korea free trade agreement and what they what is operatives produce our declarations of loyalty to the president from secretary Mattis secretary seat Pompeo, Paul Ryan denounce, the op-ed writer account. Even the first lady never speaks. And obviously has very little time for this president even she gave a statement of loyalty today, the president is I think he's impaired with public opinion. But he's a little stronger a little with a somewhat tighter grip on power today than forty eight hours ago. You're going to have to ask you. If this is reminding you of another time when I heard the word impaired another time, I'm thinking of James Schlesinger, and Richard Nixon. Sure, you know, the two moments that have been discussed are Richard Nixon, especially in that final year when there are all kinds of fears slashing jerk Kissinger who are trying to control what was going on in the White House fears. The president had lost control is also a nice article in the Atlantic today. Looking back when they were concerns about Reagan for it for the same thing. But, but this seems I if this is all correct, it seems even worse because this is both about a president consumed with a scandal. It's about a president who is not fit to serve that is the charge that's being made. And and in some ways, we're fortunate things aren't worse. If this is all the case, but we can't rely on officials who we don't even know who they are to be making decisions and not being accountable. That's the whole point of the democratic process. So this is not really a solution. And in the end, it didn't work with rich. Richard Nixon, Richard Nixon resigned. If you wanna historical parallel, the closest one is not Nixon, and it's not Reagan. It's Woodrow Wilson last months of his pregnant presidency when he had a stroke. When he was not in charge of the government. And when his wife and doctor kept secret this impairment and the tried to function in one thousand nine hundred nine hundred twenty without a president. And the result of it was a series of decisions that put us on the road to the great depression. To encourage. This summer saying that this could actually empower Donald Trump because he's already tweeting out. I'm draining the swamp in the swamp is trying to fight back not noting that this isn't the swampy said he'd go to fight this. These are his people these are his appointees that's around him. But some are saying that this might empower him we're hearing from people saying didn't we already know this? So we'll take this up again fascinating Julian seltzer professor of history in public affairs at Princeton, Julian thanks as always thank you and David from a staff writer theatlantic will link you to his writing also author of the book Trump accuracy, the corruption of the American Republic, David thanks as well.

"A tation i always hear pundits romanticising the trump voters some type of noble forgotten man or suggesting that maybe there's something that the rest of us are missing now i realize the when i'm about to say is probably controversial to suggest but is the ugly truth that no one wants to admit perhaps that there exists a huge part of this country that just frankly isn't very bright uh i won't accept that and because people okay every person look obviously we all very in intelligence and other other attributes there many there many things go to making good human being beside brains we all know terrible people were very clever and um uh we on a good people who don't have a lot of academic skills um but that figure came of of howth uneducated trump voter cain was what referenced the trump primary voter in the very early part of the republican primaries oak as trump won that his voting base came to overlap more and more with rest of the re with regular republican party and now um i mean a lot of people of exit of the republican party in response to trump and now it is donald trump's uh party i i don't think anybody should look at any other group of people is somehow to foolish to govern themselves but all americans are subject different kinds of pressures and the trump voters are in places where there are there's a health crisis unlike anything ever seen in the united states a wither our economic pressures where they feel that they are being culturally disrespected that's that's very important to a lot of people to feel that that um you know just so there there you are a trump in the trump successful man in an unsuccessful place coping with addiction and early death and all the problems you see around you and then you're told that oh on top of everything else you need to apologize for your white privilege leave think i don't feel very privileged and i don't appreciate being lectured thank you very much by.

"A f three tries to keep the team functioning as a team doesn't make personal donald trump is all about ego he and he has no policy ideas in the usual sense that term so if somebody doesn't submit to him he attacks them in the most personal possible way because he just wants to cause pain and rious assert his own power over them but without much of a sense of actually trying to achieve anything will whether it's congress or the media or even various conservative institutions i want to get your opinion on something a who were the worst offenders in terms of enabling elevating and legitimizing trump both during the election and now that he's president now that he's president probably the most important offenders are the republican donor elite uh the people who during the campaign tried to stop him than after the election have made their peace with him um and but they've done things like they write checks to his inaugural campaign committee which you know completely secret money uh and they have decided that they can use donald trump to get things done and not only are they doing that but they are preventing the congress from acting in a way to enforce ethical standards all the press while there was also certainly a good deal of culpability on the part of fox news and they seem to have gone out of their way now to avoid alienating archie italy fickle trump voter to the point of largely ignoring the russian investigation but if the trump demographic is as you point out in the book poorly educated and low income at what point might this start to actually effect to add revenue and perhaps could that financial hit be the thing that finally brings fox back to a place of responsible journalism and maybe holding the president a little more accountable on fox is always had a struggle with responsible journalism um there are people there who want to do it the audience doesn't care about it and the dollar's flow fastest to the most irresponsible voices fox is also become terrified of the risk of losing its audience too alex jones breitbart even more.

"The day the president get something called the president's daily brief which is fill the most precious secrets of the united states that briefest typically read by the president usually the vice president almost always the chief of staff certainly the national security adviser uh maybe one or two others in the administration bill clinton let first lady hillary clinton read it eight slightly redacted form of the brief is made available to former president donald trump has made that brief available to fourteen people including his son in law who is so compromised by chinese money while you know as a cia person that donald trump boastfully blurts precious secrets in order to impress the russian foreign minister and you know he's watching fox and friends anyways not reading the brief he wants short he what simple he wants lots of pictures get into the habit of leaving stuff out i mean if the president asked you point blank uh you would tell him but if he doesn't know what to ask for he can't ask for kenny so i i do think this probably deterioration in the quality of information that is flowing to the white house and i do think that there is some tendency among the military to get into the habit of of independence and the the dangerous all bureaucracies wanna slip the leash of their political masters the mill and militaries are no exception this can become a habit and that is dangerous and he he and perhaps in a similar way to the way that the military views trump i think many republicans in congress initially approached trump's victory with a similar logic in that maybe this is a man who has no real ideology of his own so we might be a useful idiot whole signed whatever we put in front of him do you think it's worked out the way they planned what he has certainly been willing to submit to the republican agenda remember how donald trump came to the fore in 2015 '16 but promising to be a different kind of republican he wasn't going to cut entitlements he was going to put middleclass economic concerns the top of the agenda on he was going to be tough on immigration he's going to have a new approach on trade so he.
