"Even if on the substance, it's not actually a victory, and it's not actually a wall. Because the one thing that President Trump does not want to be seen as a loser in this negotiation in general, but particularly in this negotiation. So whether that means getting a little bit of money for border security, and sort of declaring that there's a wall. Now, you know being able to take a picture in front of offense and saying it's a wall there's going to be some sort of movement that. Allows him the latitude to say to his base, which is again, we know this the group that he cares most about well, actually, one regardless of what the fake news is telling you we could go for hours judging from our call board on exactly this question. I'm going to take one more before we moved to Robert Muller versus BuzzFeed Barbara in courtly manner. You're on WNYC, the northern suburbs are engaged in this issue. Hi, barbara. Hi, thanks for taking the call longtime listener first-time getting through. John. I was thinking that they should take some kind of a deal but naked permanent citizenship for dreamers. And I think Christian a Christian gillibrand mentioned it was more than what he was saying was three million and also the temporary protected status for stations and other make them all permanent residents, and I just generally into shut down and give Trump money for the wall, which he has at times said that it included some wall some samba fans some drawings on electron IQ. So I believe he likes to use the word wall when he talks about something across the border. But I think when it comes down to the details of where the actual placement of barrier will be depending on the topography, and where it is like in the desert versus in an urban area. I think that that is up for. For debate. What actually that will be? I don't see when Trump says. Well, I don't think he reality. We're talking about the concrete wall that people and myself here in my mind, and he started to say that baba thank you so much 'cause again. He did say at places along the border where it's going to be the most useful. And that he's coming off of concrete wall to steal slats. I'm not sure why that makes a difference to people. But it does I guess he in at least in his calculation. Any chance that there's something along the lines of what Barbara is suggesting make the offer that he just made for the dreamers and for the TPS recipients more permanent. And and then the Democrats say yes to this limited funding for the wall. Plus, there's a world in which that makes sense. And there's certainly a number of Democrats who might be willing to listen to that kind of an argument. And that's actually what the White House has suggested that they might try and do, but it's really important to remember here that one of the reasons that we got into this situation in the first place is because President Trump was feeling pressure from some of the more conservative commentators and already even what he came out with Saturday. Was that Coulter pushing back saying he was gonna turn into we thought we elected Trump, but we really elected, Jeb, exactly. And so this is exactly where I'm going with this which is that if he is looking to try and sweeten the deal for Democrats. There might. Be a lot of moderate Republicans, and certainly a number of more moderate Democrats who might be willing to at least sit down and have conversations around the margins on this. But the people who he listens to most the radio host, the conservative radio host the television. Hosts those are the people who are going to be angriest about it. All right last issue for this segment. The BuzzFeed article released Thursday, citing two unnamed federal law enforcement sources who say there is documentary evidence that Trump told Michael Cohen to lie to congress about Trump having a business deal in the works with Moscow throughout the campaign and Trump himself lying about it to the public Colin has pleaded guilty to lying to congress about that. If Trump directed Cohen to lie, and this is why the story is such a potential bombshell. If Trump directed calling to lie, it would be a very serious crime. But on Friday night, the Muller office dropped its own bombshell on buzzfeed's bombshell Muller's office said quote, BuzzFeed. Description of specific statements to the special counsel's office and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office regarding Michael Collins, congressional testimony are not accurate, unquote. Wow. So after the special counsels rebuke, BuzzFeed editor, Ben Smith went on Rachel maddow's show on MSNBC and stood by the article here is twenty seconds of their exchange. You said that you've spoken with the sources for this story since publication and since the response tonight from the special counsel's office your sources since publication. Okay. And there's no you're starting your sources are not backing off what are reporters. And are you confident that these sources are in a position to know what they tell you. They know. Yes, we are. And the BuzzFeed editor said this about the special counsel statement. It is not totally clear. What it means? I think we would we would like to know what I mean. I don't want to speculate on the motive when you when you aren't really clear on what it means now for the record. Ben Smith was scheduled to be on with us here this morning, which we were promoting over the weekend. So many of you heard that so for those of you anticipating that he canceled yesterday, citing a personal thing. So it may really be a personal thing or there may be some internal flux there before they come out again on the story. I don't know but gave to Benedetti from New York magazine pinch hitting for Ben Smith on short notice. Thank you so much how much do you know about what the special counsel somewhat cryptic statement? Matt, I know as much as anyone does which is not much their statement, as you said is cryptic and has been has said is cryptic. But I think there seems to be a lot of pushback from the BuzzFeed side, which essentially says, you know, they may be pushing back on the idea that day, the Muller office knew about this and knows about this specifically, but not that the substance of it is necessarily wrong. The overall report that Trump. Allegedly directed Cohen to lie here. So this has turned into sort of a media story. But of course, the substance of it, we don't know the degree to which Muller is denying it. But again, this has been said before but it bears, repeating the very fact that Muller felt compelled or molars office felt compelled to say anything here is extremely interesting because they had not said anything at all. Now. Of course, you have Republicans particularly those around the White House, essentially cheering this saying more fake news reporting Busby, doesn't know what it's talking about. But then again, you did have regionally Yanni go out there and say well actually now d- negotiations over the Trump Tower in Moscow were happening throughout the entire campaign, which of course, is where a lot of the substance of this actually began, and that's actually at the heart of all this and the BuzzFeed article does seem to have had at least one affect already it drew out Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani onto the Sunday shows to disclose one additional fact that the Trump Moscow talks lasted through the entire campaign. Beyond June, which I think was the previous impression. So here's Julianne Giuliani answering question on CNN state of the union from the hosted tapper in his written answers. President Trump's written answers special counsel, Robert Mueller's questions what did President Trump have to say about the Trump Moscow project? He acknowledged that they had conversations about it throughout twenty fifty twenty sixty November two thousand. Answer. Right. Those questions he answered those questions fully, and I think to the satisfaction of the special counsel. So yes through the election Giuliani said on several shows yesterday, and he reveals their Gabe that Trump said that under oath in his written responses to Muller. What does it mean? Right. Well, there are two different investigations or two different lines of the investigation that we have to keep in mind here. One of the reasons that the BuzzFeed report was treated as such bombshell. Is that it was seen largely in the public eye at least as clear evidence of obstruction of Justice that is separate from the collusion side of this investigation. The collusion side is the side that's going to be interested in the idea that President Trump was pursuing a business deal that would personally enrich him throughout the campaign as he was promoting policies that would have been favorable to Russia. Therefore, you know, in theory at least looking at trying to sweeten the deal for himself. Now, that's again on the collusion side, not on the obstruction side. It's a little bit harder to draw the direct conclusion that well there was collusion because of this. But it is yet another piece of evidence, and the fact that Rudy Giuliani went out and admitted that or said that so declarative -ly ended the fact that we know now that President Trump did admit that to Muller's team in his written testimony is very significant. And we shouldn't overlook that. Obviously to be continued. So gave the Benedetti national politics correspondent for New York magazine. Thank you so much. Thank you.

Is none other than Nicola Benedetti herself. Hi, hi there. Thank you. Also joined by w creative director in front of the show. Clemmie Burton hill who is invited Nicola to be part of a new initiative at w q x Arza tell us what this initiative this artist advisory board, Honey. Yeah, advisory. Group sounds rather formal it's actually going to be a very informal merry band of co conspirators. We so often as you. And I often talk about Allison on this show. Think about classical music is being this rather elite practice perceive that it's only open to. Those in the know, and you know, if you're in the club, then great everyone else forget about it. And one of the things that frustrates me. So much about that perception, and I understand why people have that perception is that they're all these incredible artists out there who stand for the very opposite of that who are all about opening up this art form who all about telling stories and using it as a real tool that can actually you know, it can can reap all sorts of benefits whether it's social cohesion. Whether it's connecting disparate people from different backgrounds and communities and all sorts of other things besides so I wanted to rally some of these artists who I'm most excited by and who I feel most inspired by when it comes to really I suppose standing for something bigger than themselves. So yes, they are among the world's greatest classical artists, but they're showing up for humankind. And actually what they do on stage is inextricable from the sort of what they also do off stage. Nikola Benedetti is I think the shining exemplar when I think of the talk of you like you're not here. Thank you. This is easy. She's is modest and humble musician. She's dying right now embarrassment. You know, what I think about someone who really uses the role as a musician to do good for the world. She's such a wonderful example of that so much so that her majesty the Queen just on it with an extraordinary accolade, a CB next op Dame, essentially to on the source of work that Nikola has been doing around music education. So that's what the advisory group is all about we have a bunch of very exciting upcoming projects that w cakes called quite announced. Stay tuned, and I'll be calling on people like Nikola to help advise my strategy and creative agency week afford. Now Nikolai for people who can't see you on the radio. I think Jessica Biel plays you I love maybe in the movie, I've Nicola Benedetti your beautiful woman. You're thirty one thirty two thirty one. Yes. So when did you first pick up a when I was four so I don't remember life before it. I actually was just copying. My sister. My parents were not musicians, and I didn't have any exposure to classical music or that kind of cultural artistic surroundings. And my sister saw a violent thought it was the most beautiful thing she had ever seen. Didn't know how it sounded for four years asked to play my sister. And I began on the same day, I'm left handed. So it was a little bit of a traumatic beginning, but after the first couple of lessons, I go. I got the hang of it and and relatively quickly fell in love with the sound of the violin which can be a challenge because anybody knows who's tried to play that instrument. It sounds pretty horrific at at the beginning. It's very easy to make an ugly. So. Yeah. I had good teaching. What are your challenges is the left hand violinist? I don't actually know. Because obviously, I've never tried to play as a left handed violinist. I've always just played the way everybody plays. But but there's all sorts of theories about that. I mean, the the use of both hands are extremely complex, and you need a lot of dexterity from left, and right, but. I think there's something a little more natural about leaning to the act of playing with left hand being the Boeing arms. So I guess there's something a little bit officer about it. But I I don't know any different. When did you realize this was going to be your life's work? This was your calling. It wasn't just something that you enjoy and you happen to be good at I had no moment of realization only many moments of never questioning that. This was what I wanted to do from the age of when I was nine years old. I auditioned for a specialist music school, and that required leaving home and being in a very intense environment where you would be practicing amongst school subjects four to six hours during the day. And I in that involved home-sickness and a lot of I wouldn't quite say hardship. But things that you wouldn't necessarily want to do as young person, but my priority, and my memory of that time is just anything to allow me to play better. I was happy to do. So that's kind of been been been always the way. I remember one time my mom. Fighting with me over over practicing. It was like one of the few times I didn't want to practice. And and and she said, well, you don't have to play the violin at all. And it was like the most hurtful thing anybody had ever said to me, it was just pure pain out of your lungs. Yes. I am. I think I didn't argue but practice for awhile after that. Mom sounds like a smart lady. Let's listen to a little bit of your work. This is from our colleagues at NPR you were you had a tiny desk concert. It's so exciting. This is just you and your violin at her desk at NPR headquarters. Let's take a listen..

Canadian officials are huddling as we speak that if Donald Trump doesn't in his words back down that they will respond with clear here though is that they will respond economically. But my goodness is it going to have a political pushback. You know is interesting in speaking about Speaker Paul, Ryan, who is pushing back against this saying it will start a trade war. There are many GOP leaders saying, Look, we don't want any part of the Trump tariffs and Canada plans to really hit that message home with their targeted retaliation. Here they will hit GOP states. They will hit swing states, they will hit industries. Perhaps even in Paul, Ryan's Wisconsin. That'll make it clear that this isn't going to work anyone, you know for anyone now having said that stuff, neat time and time again from these negotiations, we've heard rhetoric from lie has are We've always heard the same thing. He has always been pessimistic and Freeland from Canada as always been perhaps a bit too optimistic. What we heard is that she was fighting back, fighting back, hard in saying, Look, we want this to be a win, win, win. The minute it becomes.

Has this incentivize in any way, the trade representatives from Canada and Mexico to concede any points? The Not so far. The the the threat of tariffs, If Trump President Trump goes through with them next week, would only through ice on already fragile negotiations enough. The And I think the irony of of these tariffs Stephanie is the red states that got Trump into the White House would probably be hit the hardest you're talking about farmers in the Midwest, A An auto workers in the rust belt of the United States. And even in the southeast as well with farmers in auto workers there, It's a very a trade heavy area. The other irony is that we're not action. Early talking about punishing China with these specific steel tariffs, Paula, Obviously, Canada and Mexico are US allies. I wonder if there's any sense. I mean, the markets are clearly shaking off the feeling that there is going to be a trade war, at least today that that could change. But is there a sense among Canadian officials that this may be bluffing on the part of the Trump administration? I think they certainly hope so, but they've they learn anything from the Trump administration is just take them at their word and take it at Donald Trump's word alone and not as the point that they are still hanging on what he says. They still do not rule out the possibility that those tariffs will be imposed later this week. Now, if that happens, That doesn't mean Donald Trump on changes mind again. But it has been interesting to see the market shrugged this off. I think they were definitely bolstered by the Speaker Ryan saying he wasn't with it and certainly seeing it. Some of the more Let's say alarmist predictions from some of the companies in the United States saying, Look, this is going to cost Americans more everywhere. Even if it will help some steel and aluminum workers. Having said that seventy everyone has to be reminded here. This is the political script. The Donald Trump is writing and he will ride this out for several months. Even if it does appear to be hurting the economy, if he thinks it will help him politically. And that is the only thing that Canadian officials right now are banking, Paula Newton from Ottawa and. Trickle less Thanks a lot will the proposed a tariffs threaten many foreign companies that invest heavily in the US luxury carmaker Rolls Royce and its parent company. BMW could be badly affected by steel and aluminum tariffs speaking on quest to express earlier the Rolls Royce, chief executive stressed the importance of his company's contribution to the US economy. Roses, part of for the BMW group best you might know, and the BMW group is a major investor when it comes to the United States, not only in plant facilities, but also when it comes to generate jobs. For many, many Americans said, I think the BMW group brought quite some wealth into the United States. And with that, I would love to leave it because let's wait and see how that really pans out. Finally, tactful answer. There is really a Prime Minister. Benjamin Netanyahu has left a widening corruption, probe back home to visit another administration mired in controversy and chaos here in the US President Trump welcomes his Israeli counterpart to the White House. Speaking to reporters that pair celebrated the planned opening of a new American embassy in Jerusalem. Mr Trump claims that move will cost significantly less than the proposed one billion dollars. He said it'll cost two hundred fifty thousand dollars. In fact. And the president says he may even attended the opening ceremony himself or Lieberman has been following this story from Jerusalem Orient watching these two leaders needed as always amusing a PM Netanyahu seem to really bend over backwards. A flatter Mr Trump this time comparing his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital to the Balfour agreement. Uh, did anything it surprising come out of the meeting Warren. Not really exactly as we expected Netanyahu is often directed a tremendous amount of flattery towards Trump. And this was certainly no different. They hit their talking points. And this was as much as this was about the substance of what was said. It was also about the optics of it. These two leaders getting along well Netanyahu and Trump are popular with each other's voter basis. It was all about that picture. The two of them smiling together, shaking hands Trump said he may attend the opening of the embassy in May. It's the first time he said that, although we fully expect to be here in May for the simple reason, that is an easy win for Trump. It's an easy win for Netanyahu and these two leaders get along famously well, so Netanyahu made it clear. He wants to talk about Iran in combating the nuclear deal that they did mostly pro in private or Netanhyahu made a short statement about it right at the beginning. But it was pretty much on point in terms of what we expected from these two leaders are. Anna. You've been following Netanyahu's his political turmoil at home. And right before he left, there was a development and one of the corruption cases against him some bad news. It appears for Prime Minister Netanyahu. Can you bring us up to speed on that? It actually happened after he left. It happened a few hours, Just a few hours before Netanyahu and Trump met in Washington. And that's that a third one of Netanyahu's confidants turned state's witness agreeing to work with investigators in another blow to the prime minister. It seems These blows in these developments against the prime minister and his inner circle are coming every few days. No ever since police said they had enough evidence to indict him in two separate investigations who still has the support of his coalition at this point. So it doesn't have to worry about some leaked somebody toppling the government while he's gone, but it's another blow against Netanyahu in this comes just a couple of days after he was questioned under caution In another Graf Perot meeting. He is a suspect now in three different corruption investigation. All right Orrin LeBron reporting from Jerusalem are and thanking we did here from the opposition as well. Prime Minister Netanyahu Hill was expected to ask, asked for US, help to prevent Iran from draining a greater foothold in Syria will. I asked former Israeli foreign minister sippy. Any how big an issue that is. It's important to understand that it's not only a trip to Israel. I hear about Iran and Turkey narrow Bicknell less than I hear it in the Abreu Uh, this is a trip to the region and even to the world, uh, the idea We are talking about Syria. Uh, this is a day after, uh, and the the outcome cannot be Iran control Syria, and we heavy, Ron, and these controlled in Iraq. And in Syria and Lebanon, It's unacceptable. And I believe that the whole of say of Russia now, uh, since it's becoming very, um, uh, a very big in in Syria, I think that those should be in understanding in an agreement that, uh, we doubt any connection to us at whether we stay So go, uh, the need east to take Iran out of Syria and to minimise the tsar controlling the rated. Do you think that there should be more military intervention on the part of the US? I think we are not even there. It's important to to say that everything is on the table. Sometimes those a needs to speak about the use of force in order to prevent the use of force. Uh, but now we are Multi-vendor of frankly, the United States is not very active in the region, unfortunately. And it's time for the United States will conduct the Rita and then to deal with the some of the problems that we are all facing this at the meaning go for the leadership of the United States. And when it comes to Syria, Iran, Uh, there is a very commend, frankly, in the Middle East there is no very cubicle, Roland, so. And so the the Russians said there and therefore it's time to be more active when it comes to the Middle East. Let's talk about another potential leadership vacuum. You're the chief negotiator for Israel for many years during peace talks with the Palestinians ever since the US announced that it would be moving its embassy to Jerusalem. The Palestinians have not wanted to engage with the US. At least we don't know that they have publicly. Donald Trump said today that with Jerusalem off the table that gives us an opportunity for peace. The president also said that Palestinians are showing a willingness to come back to the table. I know that you must have contacts on the Palestinian side. So let me ask you tippy, Do you see any sign that the Palestinians are willing to come back to the table with the US as a as a negotiator? My feeling is the after the corrosion of Jerusalem, the Reserve fear on the Palestinian side, the bully would sealed. Over we'd be note, balanced and doubtful. The US can do is to speak with the Palestinian soil, send messages to do to throw the bulldozer likely. As long as the deal is really the ultimate deal between the Israel in the Palestinian and doesn't take in consideration the political problems of Netanyahu in the air. Well, Well, let's talk about that. How much Ed deep water is Netanyahu in politically and I have to ask you this if indeed Netanyahu ends up being indicted. Are you and your party preparing for the possibility of a snap election? Listen, this is the decision. We are all waiting for the decision of. Um, the legal, the legal is to the governmental were, um, the those that need to make the decisions. But it is clear that there is a connection that the more we have more information about what's going on in the boat to corruption that you teach this disturbing. Uh, I don't know whether we are going to face elections in the new future future. We've been, uh, the next few days This is the decision Netanyahu can can may. Uh, but I must say that this Well isn't great democracy and the nobody's above the low. And this is something that this really should big crowd off. Even those who supports Netanyahu and how you hope they understand that even though these are quite difficult Dem's dais for them. Sippy Livni speaking to me earlier now turning to Europe, the major markets are sizeable gains. Thanks to a rally late in the session. Germany's DAX surged one and a half percent. Germany's Social Democratic Party has voted to form a coalition with Uncle Merkel's Christian Democrats. So stability They are not the story though in Italy where stocks fell zero point four percent. Italian politics has been flung into an era of uncertainty. A populist revolt is threatening to upend the established political order. There Ben Wedeman reports on the aftermath of Italy's general election. It was a moment of joy three to five star movements thirty one year old leader, Luigi denial, and the numbers came in. UPI. A movement born just nine years ago, New by anger over corruption bureaucracy and economic decline is now the country's most powerful political force taking almost a third of the fractured electorate. He's a young emotion doco may seem to more Do you hope to Iraq. Tie-ins chose to break with the old system says pensioner unafraid Bill de Benedetti daughter. The other big winner was the Euro skeptic rapidly anti immigrant go or the legal, their share of the vote has more than quadrupled in cattle, General Dostam. But she's a it's clear yesterday. The Italians gave us a precise mandate of the League's leader McHale said veal, declares quality photos. Colombia to-to everything changes. This newspaper headlined announces while another paper throws up its hands with a body banner meaning roughly What a mess. The country is right for radical change. Incomes have been stagnant for a quarter of a century unemployment remains stubbornly in double digits. The young are leaving the country in record. Numbers can add value that you They go to Spain, England, American anywhere. As long as they can find a stable job, There's nothing stable here. Any more says, Rome resident Amandio Jida when he was buying any, give their area at all, let you love the last traditional parties still standing on a centre-left Tito Democrat, Gordon Democratic party saw its share of the vote fall from twenty five percent in two thousand thirteen to nineteen percent in Sunday's vote and Monday evening.

Never newspaper columnist must see more Franco says the guardians of the status quo only have themselves to blame.
