"Saying This is a hard time I care about you. I'm helping you. I think of those programs went out Toe Red America. They would see that Joe Biden is not the doom of America, which they've a lot of people have convinced themselves he is, but there's actually someone who can help you. I do think that's the beginning of turning around. They're not gonna listen. They're not gonna touch the reality until they feel that somebody cares and sees and hears them. And these air. This has to be done physically, not just with words. Jonathan? Yes, I I agree with that completely and talk about a person who is the person for the time. I mean, if anything, if there is a word to describe President elect Joe Biden, it is empathetic. I think it was the one thing the one big attribute that he had. That was his calling card in this election that he was someone who when he spoke, and people looked at him, they felt in their bones that he felt in their bones. Whatever issue that was hurting them, he felt he felt their pain. And it's in every speech is in every comment. It's in every it'll be in every policy, and I think if the Biden Harris administration pushes forward and keeps empathy at at the top of their agenda at the top of what they have to say to the country, I think they will succeed in showing all of America that they care about them. So David finally, is it? Is it a good thing for Joe Biden to begin his presidency back to impeachment, with an impeachment trial in the Senate competing for attention? And for time and everything for that matter. Yeah, I am. I completely support impeachment. Think is the right thing to do, I think would be a bad thing to have the trap in the Senate. Joe Joe Biden has to pass that legislation. We just had a horrifying report. 10 minute sale on Cove. It That was horrifying on so we need to solve that problem. We need to pass this piece of legislation. $1.9 Trillion, a very complicated piece of legislation. I think it's got a lot of things. A lot of Republicans can support. Ah, lot of things. Joe Manchin, the West Virginia can support And so you can get. I think that Bill can be supported, and we get $1.9 trillion out the door to the American people. But it's not gonna be easy Lift and maybe in a Senate trial eight takes up a lot of time. It'll stoke all the flames. The Republican Party will find it very easy just to go in opposition mode. I'd love to think that we can at least have a couple months of action before they go in opposition mode, and I'm afraid the trial will do that. Jonathan. What about what about that is a trial necessary? Yes, it is necessary, And this is my first time disagreeing with my friend David. It is necessary for what I said. The reason I said before, because of the message it would send to someone who might try it. Try what President Trump did. In the future. You know, people elect senators to come to Washington to do hard things and over the last few cycles. What we have seen is a Senate that gets nothing done unless it's confirming judges or voting on inconsequential legislation. They come here to do hard things. And there's nothing harder right now than holding a sitting president soon to be not sitting president but to hold a chief executive responsible for very bad acts, but also to help a nation that is reeling from a global pandemic. And then the subsequent economic implosion. David, I'm going to give you the last word unless you leave time for Jonathan again. What about the argument? He's making that this. This is something the country needs to do. Yeah, I just think we're our legislative capacities are not very high right now and doing a pretty confrontational and violent, not violent but a confrontational impeachment. At the same time. We're trying to pass very complicated and a lot of research resistance legislation. I just think that's too heavy lift from us. And so we have to choose in my view. And I choose the covert release them. All right, Jonathan, you get 15 seconds. I hear you, David. I just hope the Senate I hope the Senate does both. They can do both. Yeah. Jonathan Capehart. David Brooks. We thank you both. As the U. S death toll to covert 19 reached another milestone. We want to take a moment now to remember some of the individuals we've lost to the pandemic. George Whitmore. Love nature and spending time outdoors. He first learned how to rock climb from roommates while it pharmacy school in San Francisco. George soon became an expert climber and in 1958 was part of the first ever team to scale El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. His wife said. He was a humble and frank leader. He believed his.

I'm Laxmi, saying the coronavirus pandemics knocked more than a year off the average life expectancy in the United States. Researchers at the University of Southern California and Princeton Of calculated the largest single year decline and roughly 40 years. The decline in life expectancy is estimated to fall by more among Latinos and African Americans. Meanwhile, a new survey reveals more people are taking better care not to get infected. Here's NPR's Rob Stein. Researchers at northeastern northwestern Harvard and Rutgers University's have been surveying about 20,000 people nationwide every month since the pandemic began. In the latest survey, the researchers find that mass wearing hit an all time high in the past month, and fewer people are doing risky things like going to work in the gym, eating in restaurants and spending time inside with people they don't live with. But the researchers say the amount of careful behavior still remains far below what it was in the spring and far too low to contain the virus, especially with new, apparently more contagious strains Emerging Rob Stein.

Anna Wintour defends Vogue’s controversial Kamala Harris cover

"It's been a busy week for vogue and anna winter. I spoke with her last friday about her thirty two year. Tenure as editor in chief of vogue. We also discussed february cover featuring vice president-elect kamala harris the very next day the february cover leaked and internet react and not in a good way in the photo harris's standing in front of a green and pink backdrops in a black jacket skinny pants pants and converse sneakers which have become famous and social media the twitter reactions. I saw were overwhelmingly negative. Some took issue with the styling oppose others with the lighting only spoke last week. Winter told me that she found the cover welcoming and relaxed but the general consensus online was that it was too casual that it did not rise to the historic occasion of the first woman. Vice president the first black woman vice president that it was disrespectful. It's certainly didn't bode well for conde nast or for winter. Who is been here before having been accused of racially insensitive coverage and workplace discrimination by some of our staff just seven months ago according to people familiar with the matter on both sides. There is not a written formal agreement in place. These people also say the vice president elect team had an expectation of a different cover. One in which harris is wearing a blue suit and standing in front of a gold backdrop. It's a more stately and serious photo and one that is clearly more fitting for a vice president by sunday. That photo was released as a digital cover along with the one that was originally leaked at the time of this recording. People familiar with the matter said the photo with the sneakers will be the only physical cover they added. That vogue is considering using the more formal portrait in a second print edition after the cover leaked. I went back to winter for comment. She said quote. Obviously you've heard and understood the reaction to the print cover and i just want to reiterate that it was absolutely not our intention to in any way diminish the importance of vice president-elect incredible victory we want nothing but to celebrate vice president-elect harris's amazing victory and the important moment this is america's history and particularly for women of color all over the world. She also said there was no formal agreement about what the choice of the cover would be and when the two images arrived at folk all of us felt very very strongly that the less formal portrait of the vice president elect really reflected the moment that we were living in which we are in the midst as we still are of the most appalling pandemic is taking lives by the minute and we felt to reflect this tragic moment in global history. A much less formal picture something. That was very very accessible and approachable and real really reflected the hallmark of the biden harris campaign and everything that they're trying to and i'm sure it will achieve. I'm not exactly sure with the pandemic has to do with it. But here's my conversation with anna winter and just as a reminder again. This interview was recorded before the cover leaked. Can you tell me about the cover. Shoot and how you got her to do this. Well we're very on it that we have current vice president elect on the cover. I think by the time we published. She will be the vice president. And obviously it's a historic moment for women of color for america and it was an ongoing compensation for time and obviously with everything that was going only the election. We were thrilled when we knew that she would make the time for the shoot and honored and we had featured her invoked before and obviously covered the campaign and many different ways of the campaign season. And we very much wanted to have this cover around the time of the inauguration because we felt that it would be cia moment of celebration and joy pitcher directly. Did you picture yourself. No that was done by my features team and they were in touch with her office but it was very much a compensation between bogan the vice president alex office. I can't believe i'm asking this. But what is she wearing. Well the favorite item of clothing that she's wearing on the cover for me is that she's wearing sneakers. Well of course converse. That's right and the picture was taken by a wonderful young photographer talent. Who had previously photograph beyond safe for us and also wildly successful december cover of harry styles and he had the wonderful idea putting her in front of the colors of sorority which sort of like pink and green and she's standing in a black pant suit and a white t shirt and and seko's is this. Her clothing is these. These are close. Yes and she looks fantastic. Did you want to put her in other clones or we were very open. I mean i think that she has a very assured sensus style. I if you look at any images of her during the campaign season is she has a very strong sense of self what she wants to wear so she was very clear on what she wanted to wear. And on the inside pictures. She has a super chic blue Michael kors pantsuit. And i think it's very much in character And i think that the the kaaba itself is so charming and so relaxed and for me so surprising and so real. And as i listened to the president elect and the vice president elect talk about embassy and unity and bringing people together to me that this covers symbolizes. That i feel it's a very welcoming image.

"Elect Joe Biden, taking heat and prays for his choice to lead the Transportation Department. He nominated former rival Pete Buddha judge as his secretary of transportation. Biden says he wants to create thousands of green jobs by making environmentally friendly retrofits and Public work improvements, and he's hoping to revive the economy that way. Over the past few weeks, Vice President Harrison I have been announcing nominees to our cabinet there people of the highest character, varied experiences and backgrounds. Gonna help us beat this pandemic. Keep us safe is secure and build our economy back better than ever. Woz. Include longtime colleagues and new faces and new voices. Include people who share my views and those who have different views. They include people who supported my campaign from its earliest days and people ran against me. I'm also mindful That the eyes of history are on disappointment. Knowing that this is the first time in American president has ever sent an openly LGBT Q Cabinet member to the Senate for competent for confirmation. I remember watching the news 17 years old in Indiana. Seeing a story about an appointee of President Clinton. Name to be an ambassador attacked and denied a vote in the Senate. Because he was gay.

Fauci says to give COVID-19 vaccine to Biden, Harris, Trump, Pence

"He's 78 years old. He says he doesn't want to skip to the front of the vaccine line. But Willie and should he is the incoming president. How does this work? Well, it sort of depends on what we think of as skipping the head of the line, because, uh, if you were the president elect of the United States, there's a pretty short line in front of you. No matter what, Um Because there are seriously issues of continuity of government and I don't even think it was Inappropriate for the Trump administration, though they've since reversed it to say we should get vaccinated look continuity of government matters. Now, this trump White House could have taken much more precautions much more seriously, internally and externally and had fewer cases of coronavirus. True. Still for the maintenance and the effectiveness of government. I think the White House currently the incoming biting transition team, and every senior person on that should get back to making earlier rather than later. Because it matters that they're available and there to do the job at the highest levels of the American government, So I don't think it's a political matter. That should be one that is pointed at the Trump White House or the incoming Biden White House. I do think it's just a matter of Do we want people at the top of our government to be the healthiest they can be to handle this situation? I think the answer universally is yes. So Is there a line that super long in front of the President elect? No, there isn't so moving to the front of that. If you will doesn't seem to me to be a political issue, it seems ah good governance issue. I agree with you. Let me ask you about the line. Where do we draw the line? The vice president, members of Congress staff who helped them the Supreme Court. Local legislators. Where should the line be? It's an interesting and very valid question. Because look not everyone is equal. I would I would say this. I mean, this is this is a great question. I'm giving you the top of my head answer, clad, not burrow down. I don't know if there's any legal definitions that have to be dealt with, But I would say President, vice president and all senior staff Would say, every governor in every state of the union I would say the speaker of the house and the leadership in Congress and then You know, hold off a little bit, but Hold off for how much longer look Um Congress and state legislatures have equities and responsibilities. But are they Maurin important than Frontline? Health care workers? No. Are they more important than protecting those who have been? Most seriously affected and we're death rates proportionately have been very high nursing homes. No, so I think you get those populations first, and then you move to the upper echelons. Of the federal and the national Legislatures at the highest levels there. Reagan file members of the state Legislature, You got to wait a while You got to be like me. Yeah, Springtime summer time. So I guess I'm not vital. I'm not. I'm not, you know crucial to Ah, America's success where the Corona virus is concerned. I'm an ordinary Person like everyone else, and I want a lot of state legislatures right around my end of the line sometime this spring or summer. Hey, major, You're a baseball guy. Did

Biden, Harris are Time's 2020 'Person of the Year'

"Go from here. That's the colossal question. Before president-elect joe biden who was named times person of the year along with vice president elect kamala harris. He's not the first person of the year to be tasked with the future of america. Almost every u s president since the franchise began in nineteen twenty. Eight has been named person of the year at least once excluding calvin coolidge. Herbert hoover and gerald ford but biden is likely the first in a generation to inherit such a crescendo of course trophies. A worsening pandemic that's brought a staggering loss of life widespread unemployment and an economic crisis a global climate crisis a reckoning over the continued pervasiveness of systemic racism and growing misinformation blurring fact and fiction during an interview with time editor in chief and ceo. Edward felsen thal at queens theatre in wilmington delaware. The president-elect discussed his partnership with harris the coming covid nineteen vaccine rollout. His thoughts on pardons and more here are excerpts. From biden's interview edited for clarity on restoring america's middle class if my plan is able to be implemented whole plan. I think it's going to go down as one of the most progressive administrations in american history. We've lost the idea that when ordinary people do well. Everybody does better. It's important that we focus on the things that provide opportunity pardoning donald trump. my justice department will make decisions based on the facts there. The people's lawyers. They're not my lawyers. I'm never going to pick up the phone. And say pardon so. And so or go out and prosecute so. And so. But i lived through gerald ford's pardoning of richard nixon. I think that the law and the circumstance should take its effect. I'm not suggesting. Trumpy prosecuted. Or not. But i would not be engaged in that prematurely. How the pandemic has changed him and us. What's been reinforced is my absolute commitment. That everyone is entitled to health care. It's not about whether or not it's a privilege it's a right. We're the only country in the world that has come out of every crisis stronger than we went into the crisis. I predict we will come out of this crisis stronger than when we went in finding vaccine. Hesitancy the words of a president matter. Whether they're good. Presidents are bad. They matter i joined the three presidents who said they would be publicly vaccinated because i think people will realize that we have to reinstate confidence that science is real if someone with the reputation of anthony fauci and the leading scientists of the country said this vaccine works they should take choosing kamala harris. She is straight as an arrow. She is really really bright. She is tough but yet she has a heart. That understands what it's like to be on the other side of prejudice. She also was an immigrant's daughter who was raised in a strange way like i was. We were taught that we could be anything. Don't give up just move. Keep pushing. And i just found her to be someone who. If in fact something happened to me i knew they could take over. That's kamla

Does Trump have any options after Supreme Court rejects Texas lawsuit?

"Us. Now is marc elias. He's founder of democracy docket. he's a veteran. Democratic voting rights attorney. He has played a key role in the biden campaigns. Legal effort to fight these bogus election challenges and he has been very busy. He's litigated over. Sixty post-election cases thus far mr lyons thank you so much for making time tonight. I know you're probably exhausted. I appreciate you being here. I am exhausted but like all of us also breathing a huge sigh of relief. Not that this was ever redoubt But it's good to have it behind us and rachel. Thank you for everything you've done to keep shining at a light on us. Oh well let me ask you about how the quality of the light the. Because i am not a lawyer and i do know that what happened tonight at the supreme court. I've seen people who are lawyers who are very good at this sort of summarizing it in different ways. Let me just give you a chance to tell me if i said any of that wrong or if you think there's an easier or better way to explain what this court ruling was tonight and how it went down i gotta right. I mean i think the the the takeaway is that the supreme court ruled nine zero against the president against the state of texas which was doing his doing his bidding here Seven at the justices said you. Don't get in the courthouse door to the justices. Say as a matter of of of rule we think any state always gets in the door get said the ability to file this against gets a file a lawsuit of this kind but we wouldn't grant here Your motion for expedited treatment. We wouldn't grant your motion for an injunction. We wouldn grant to your motion for administrative stay so even even if this got the door we wouldn't we wouldn't do anything to advance at any further so to me. It's a clear Nine zero results and mark. Do you think that this is just the first of a whole bunch of cases that they will figure out ways to get to the supreme court. There will be more. Obviously there was the pennsylvania case just a few days ago that supreme court also held the door shut on. There's i don't think anybody thinks there's been any substantive case in any jurisdiction in any court anywhere in the country that's going to get to the supreme court because the courts gonna have a hard time on the merits. But do you think they are going to try to get arizona case or some other case as many cases they can to keep coming up before the courts just sort of indefinitely. Yeah i mean just The last twenty. Four hours we've seen the arizona contests cases case in state court That was filed to contest the election. That The trump trump's team lost at the trial court lost in the arizona supreme court by the way the arizona supreme court not known for its liberal bent And that they now Fashioned an appeal to the us supreme court That they filed today and the cracking conspiracy case out of georgia. I saw they had filed in the spring for block typically filing a lawsuit his Just a matter of filing fee the in the supreme court. It's even less than that. So they can file these cases but they're not going anywhere and i think after today even though many of us predicted that this case wasn't going anywhere i think it's fair to say Al's cracking conspiracy. Nonsense is not gonna Knocking occupied much time with the supreme court. Market is remarkable scene. You and your colleagues basically win sixty straight here It was amazing to see it to be a dozen straight and then twenty then thirty and then forty and it just keeps going. They've just lost at every level and in some cases been really quite chastised by judges hearing these cases about how how bad they aren't how pointless they are they. Just there's they've had no traction whatsoever. And i have to ask you now of landmark moment with the court having made this decision tonight if this is more than just wins and losses if you think the volume and the pace and the unrelenting nature of what they're doing despite consistent rejection says something about our democratic process and the two parties that's different than who we might have thought we were coming into this. Yeah it's a really good question is the thing that troubles me most about where we are you know i was asked a few days ago. How many lawsuits. They're typically filed by a by a cam candidate or money. Can't they lose an election. I said the answer zero like we can't live. This seem more money. The fact is i. I was counsel for john. Kerry is now council hillary clinton's. I've sat in that room with candidates who have lost closer elections than donald trump. Lost here and you weigh those options you you say. Is there something that can be done. But at the end of the day our system relies on the fact that when candidates lose and it is clear they lost that they can see both for the peaceful transition of power which is which is part of it but also for the continuance of democracy of the democratic system is the norm of accepting election results and this was not a close election. I love to say that we won fifty seven lawsuits because me and the other ripple lawyers involved were grave warriors but the fact is we won because joe biden harris one virtually landslides in these states. I mean these were not close elections. And so what i am worried about is that trumpism has so infected the republican party that this is what the republican party is.

Our job is not over because obviously the biden harris administration is not official. Have not been sworn in yet but as you see.

Justice demands dot com. So thank you because we are one hundred percent convinced. I without getting into details. I know we would not have had the meeting with the transition team. Had we not created that website and so so many people said wh- why are you. Why are you pressing them now. Some people said give them a break. Give them a vacation Wait until they're inaugurating is like no no They're making key policy decisions today and they are announcing every day actions that they're going to take on day one actions that they're gonna take in the first one hundred days and if you wait until they're inaugurated you are way too late and everyone who cares about the decisions that that administration will take from all types of fields there. Lobbying them right now. You don't wait until they take office.

The you know a foot in the door and we were grateful dad. They assembled a serious team of decision.

Were the district attorney's of philadelphia. Boston san francisco in central florida. Larry krassner Rachel rollins chase a bodine. and aramis. ayala. We also had policy writers on our team and civil rights attorneys from the grassroots law project and organizers from the grassroots law project that were there and so we had about ten people on our end they had a think nine people on on their side and there were a few things that surprise me. i we. We wrote a an agenda for the meeting in basically a policy paper for the meeting and in spite of sending it repeatedly before the meeting it appeared that maybe only one or two people in the meeting had had a chance to look at it. I'm not saying that as this of course. They are swamped. And i told my wife the same. You know what i just told you. And she said sean you know how many times before meetings have you just been unable to review the documents that people sent you to prep. And that's true and and i've never been a part of a presidential transition and so it threw me for a loop that none of them had seen any of the document that we sent them and so everything we said. I had hoped that they would have some familiarity with what i was telling them. And for the most part with just a few exceptions for the most part. They didn't because they they hadn't read it or hadn't gotten it and that made it. That threw me for a loop from the beginning and it took me a couple of minutes to realize like oh. None of them have read our proposal. And i don't think that it was this. And i'll tell you why one again i honestly earnestly think that this incoming administration has one of the toughest jobs of any presidential administrations.

"States are attempting to contract the number of tests they do in order to improve throughput rates because as many of listeners may know at the in. July. We often had people waiting seven to ten days, which is next to useless for test. The the problem is we actually need lots of tests. We don't just need ones that come back in a timely fashion. There are tests that can be done more quickly and produced in larger scale, but the FBI won't approve them because they're not as accurate as the test we're doing. But if we have to make trade offs and clearly we do then the trade offs, we should be making getting as many tests as possible doing them constantly in order to overcome the inaccuracy problem rather than letting people who have covid walk around not knowing it. For my rent trump supporters like to say that while Biden ahead in the polls, trump has more enthusiasm on his side and the implications that will lead to a better turnout result for the president and indeed, if you asked voters, are they enthusiastic about voting for the candidate they intend to vote for they're more likely to say that if they're trump voters that if they're Biden voters but there's a new poll question from the Research Center I think may shed more light on who could have an enthusiasm problem this fall they ask. Supporters of each candidate whether they would be angry if the other candidate want and sixty one percent of Biden supporters say they'd be angry if Donald Trump is reelected only thirty seven percent of trump supporters say they would be angry if Joe Biden is elected in this era of negative partisanship one of the most important things that motivates voters is fear and disgust and anger toward the candidate on the other side.

Think what Megan said is exactly right. You know China has evolved and the direction that China is heading. It has evolved if you went back ten years ago or twenty years ago were a lot more optimistic in Reps. I think reasonably. So for the prospects of of China moving in a more cooperative direction with the United States has really changed game A number of issues have emerged from China simply being more wealthy and therefore more assertive. So we have to adapt to that and I think that question for the by administration is going to be. How do you shift gears from this flailing move? Very bellicose approach that the trump administration has taken not back to saying well, these things aren't really an issue. Let's just all get along the saying look the some of these things that trump has responded to. Actually in many ways, wrongheaded Lee and other ways odd. Nonetheless, real issues and they're not going away whether it's the South China Sea or whether it's our. Taiwan or what's happening in Hong Kong or or or chronic trade imbalances between the United States in the rest of the world not dimensioned China. I think that what kinds of issues how do bring more effective leverage on these issues working with other countries but also just thinking strategically about you know what is what is really a good thing for us to do what's effective for us to do and what's not effective for us to do and that was I outlined a couple ideas that? I think we have to play it by ear to use a Chinese phrase This is how they describe perform is we have to cross the river by feeling stones, and so they going to be some things that we do that are in turn out to be not very effective. We're going to have to turn it up. Impressed rapid notch, other things where we might have to dial it down a notch. Be Flexible and that's the big question and when you say, you know when they say the Chinese favor Biden today fire favor Biden because he thinks he's days, GonNa be soft on China. That's one possibility the other possibility is that you know will be he'll have a much more effective. Approach and maybe China won't like it. So much I'm trying to make heads or tails of why China might or might not support president trump's reelection. There's evidence on both sides to suggest China would support him or not. I could see all the reasons why China wouldn't want A. President Biden why they would support trump he kinda just like outlines what is negotiating strategy is on twitter all the time he's kind of a unifier. Well, the this gets into the issue of China's view on this or Xi, Jinping's view on this is subjective and so you know what the priorities that he's pushing right now for China and the way the world is not necessarily the way that previous Chinese leaders have or everyone in China's season. Now he's in charge, and so he gets make those walls. But I think extremely important when we say China would prefer. Biden Resin trump. You know that's not needed there. Right. That's not the stay at their assessment of the situation is corrected terms of what their ancient. With Their perception of what they're through your should be is correct Patrick.

We all accept or you're not not twenty four hours after Democratic nominee for president. Joe Biden. Announced Senator Kamala. Harris. has his running mate birtherism to plano immediately begin. So as you might remember, birtherism is point Oh was the racist conspiracy theory that Barack Obama wasn't an American citizen and therefore not qualified for the presidency. that. Same arguments be made with Senator Harris and let's be very clear. She's an American citizen like Barack Obama is she is fully qualified to be vice president and possibly president if you don't like politics or ideas, that's totally fine. But when the right resorts to what Jake Apac around Paul Pearson called the three Rs Resentment Racial Ization and rigging, it's because they're out of ideas and no, they can't win the GOP faces a demographic cliff and their solution to keeping power is to define away citizenship and voting rights of millions of people of Color White House economic adviser. Larry Slow said it clearly and out in the open voting rights are liberal left ring listless and not our game.

"Josh Barrow on the right is Meghan mcardle calm the Washington Post on the left is Dory in Warren President of the Center for Community Change. Last week, the National Counter Intelligence and Surveillance Center released its assessment of foreign efforts to influence the presidential election. The report noted that various Russian linked entities are trying to boost president trump for reelection and undermined Joe Biden's candidacy. It also noted that China and Iran appear to prefer that trump be defeated. A lot of Democrats have been critical of. The way this assessment was rolled out conflicting China's largely overt influence efforts with the more covert tactics used by the Russians, but the China assessment is interesting in its own right. My view has been the trump's tough post with China has been largely act that he's fixated on the sale of agricultural products while failing to push China on more important American interests and that the president is sought personally to flatters Uson paying and ignore his bad and worsening human rights record. So in light of that, why would China prefer that trump not be reelected? Patrick CHOVANEC joins us. Now Patrick is an economic advisor at silvercrest asset management, and he's an adjunct Professor at Columbia University's School of International and public affairs formerly, he was professor at Sing While University Beijing Hi Patrick. Hello Patrick do you think it's true that China prefers a Biden presidency and if so why do they prefer it? So that's one assessment and I think first of all, you've got to sit when you ask what do people in China think about trump. It's like asking, what do Americans think about trump? There's there's a wide range of us and it's evolved over time. if you WANNA ask what the Chinese leadership thinks about trump I do think that they are very frustrated with the trump administration. Now, you could say if you were a trump supporter that that's because he's taken really tough stand in that Biden Tak- in easier stand on China you could alternately say that it's because they just don't see him as reliable negotiator anymore negotiating partner. So you know to some extent it's in the eye of the beholder I do think that the Chinese leadership has gone from. The assumption that they could make a deal with trump the view that he not really somebody who they can make a deal with. President Trump lose Hong Kong we. In, in recent weeks trying to force through this new national, security law they've been arresting pro-democracy activists. Is there something that the trump administration that the United States government could have done to protect Hong Kong's status to China back there I don't think Hong Kong was. America's to lose in the sense that you know it's. China we're not going to go to war to to stop China firm exerting its authority in Hong Kong how it pleases that that said. Ere consequences to China. Moving away from one country, two systems destroying the foundation of what makes Hong Kong Special in attract an attractive place to do business. And I think. A lot of people in Hong. Kong. Have welcomed the trump administration's hard stance towards China at the same time trump himself has been You know hasn't always spoken up for American values in the way that maybe you know previous presidents would have. So it's one thing. You can get back to kind of one of the questions that you raise is you know how how tough is trump China or Russia or any other country? There seems to be two tracks into missed in administration. There are people who work in the administration who tend to be very, very tough on China and want to wish hard line policies, and then there's trump and trump sort of varies from day to day. It's he's very strong his rhetoric and he thinks it's useful to be rhetorically on China at the same time he seems Kinda like it admire Xi Jinping. And wants to do it deal with him if he can, and it's been frustrated by his inability to to kind of get them to do what he wants. So you know I, think you see the same thing with Russia where sue tracts there's what trump says. There's what you know policy makers in administration try to push until trump. You know pulls the rug out from under. US You said on the show a few weeks ago that you like American policymakers underestimated the impact on US workers from the China, trade. Sort of it seems to me like there's been an ongoing failure in in a number of ways to understand and respond to China that predates trump. Do you see Joe Biden being able to get a better handle on that than Obama and Bush and Clinton did before him. I doubt it. But you know I remain hopeful I think it's really hard to know until people get in I mean look at. When? When trump was running in some ways you would have thought he would have been much tougher on. China. than he was I think it's hard to know until people get into office and they're confronted with all of the constituencies and the competing and dress, and the fact that there's other stuff they WANNA do So I think that very much remains to be seen but I think that it is certainly true and this is an insight that I take from Patrick actually who I am an avid follower of. That I think that we have kind of systematically mishandled. are trying to relationship by being too complacent. Until, trump but then we've just gone to this kind of flailing and making symbolic gestures and not really thinking strategically about the relationship and I. think that's something that Patrick noted the other day that you know if you actually really want to go after China you really WanNa lock them down you really want to force them into a corner. What do you need? You need allies everywhere else and instead of making China has priority and building up those alliances so that he could then. Isolate China he went shredded our alliances. So Germany doesn't care about what we say. You know we we. He's done this with with Korea with Japan. He's he's actually weakened the tools that we had to make China behave in ways that we think are better either for us or for the world or even just for the Chinese and that I think is one of the great tragedies of his presidency is that in fact he?.

"Suddenly think that this is a really bad idea the principal position obviously is the executive orders are a lousy way to do policy the fact is that for a bunch of reasons including congressional gridlock It's not just congressional gridlock over the past. You know since Nixon, we've been arguing about the the expansion of executive power in the United States and it has waxed and waned over the years. But I think when you look at the drawbacks of it, it's not just that we the constitution gives Congress power and Congress should use it. It's that if you look at the the kind of tax that that both Obama. And now, trump had to take in order to make these things even vaguely constitutional like the way deferring the payroll taxes pointless. But it's the only way you can do it by executive order. So he's doing it and I think it goes to a broader problem, which is that Congress because Congress is now turning over so fast because it changes hands every few years, no one in Congress ever wants to make a deal. They would much rather outsource to executives of their own party so that they never have to take responsibility for anything that happens and then spent a lot of time sort of grandstanding and hoping that someday they will have control of the White House, both houses of Congress, and then they can do everything they want instead of taking half of doing deal with the opposition. Now, it's completely poisonous. It has led us to this point. We need to find a way to walk back from it but I don't think we're willing to anytime soon during I think the democratic response to these executive orders has been. Interesting in the in the Democrats in Congress have have exclusively emphasized the insufficiency of these orders that they're not really going to provide the help that they are supposed to provide that the benefit is not large enough. They're not intending to sue to block the president from from usurping what is supposed to be a congressional power, and I'm wondering what you make of that strategy. Obviously, they don't want to be seen as opposed to action to help people that the president is trying to take but it does seem to me like it's the do we really want Democrats signing onto the idea that the? Could do this sort of thing and just that it wasn't good enough. Well, are probably disagree a little bit with Megan in terms of the expansion of executive power because I don't think it is I think performance art it's symbolic and it's empty. And it's not a real solution. And I think that's the Democrats position is to really begs the question. Okay. President trump signed these executive orders. When we get to election day, there's a very simple question Ronald Reagan's hot us are you better off now than you were a couple months ago and if the answer is no people are going to be really pissed and angry I. think that's Really. The case on two aspects of this one is his proposal to channel forty, four billion dollars for disaster from disaster relief to cover the funding to states have to provide the rest in terms of this new unemployment insurance system. Oh. My goodness isn't it. I could've sworn him as Haida hurricane season right now. So you're going to channel that money away. From people who are going to need it as canes hit the coast that's that's really smart politics. Yeah. Good luck with that, and then second and I know we're GonNa get to the eviction moratorium that's just a study. That's a study bill. Basically, it's a study it's GonNa do nothing to prevent millions of people from being affected. So it's begging the question. Are you better off on election day November than you were in August when he signed executive orders let's talk a little bit about the payroll tax The president has been characterizing this as as a payroll tax cut he's been saying that he's going to terminate the payroll tax which finances social security and a good chunk of Medicare. Indie what is the actual effect of this order going to because my understanding is that it allows employers Delay Payment of the employee side of the payroll tax, which could theoretically increase people's paychecks. But there are certain reasons to suspect that employers might be reluctant to actually take that offer and do it. Yeah. That's right. I mean. There's a lot of reason to doubt that employers want to deal with the administrative headache ultimately are legally liable for paying the taxes. What happens if a worker separates from employment between now and the end of the year at the employer typically don't have easy access to engaged that a former employee So I I think this is going to be a really chaotic experienced running employer who chooses to take it up, and you know it's also got a limit on which workers can essentially be opted in right now, buddy employers although you know some of the employer groups even pushing for workers have that option. So there's an income threshold so it's not even all your workers. but you know when you think about the impacts really if it's if the money is paid back, promptly be a minimal but nevertheless, some potential impact on social security trust funds with the earnings otherwise uninterested the money would have garnered during the period that taxes were deferred but the real risk in many ways is the long run arrests from the promise you mentioned right where the president said that. If reelected, he's not going to use the payroll tax anymore to finance security attacks. Almost certainly when you think back FDR's wisdom in putting in place has helped protect the program from attacks. It helps people feel like they've paid in in a meaningful sense and it at that. They deserve those benefits the worker in were win working household that put in the necessary time in. Should get those benefits so I think that there is a real risk now that's. Relatively modest. But a big risk going forward yet. This is why would contest your idea that this isn't really an expansion of executive power here because I with I, think it is a very large assertion of executive power to say I'm GonNa take tens of billions of dollars there were appropriated for one program and use them for a different purpose and here I think I, think we're going to be saved on the payroll tax thing by some of those implementation difficulties where you know employers are afraid that if they don't send the tax now in the taxes, still legally do next year that they're going to be on the hook for paying it but if the president was able. To set up a more clever more successful way of getting people to actually withhold this tax, it would create a huge mess next year and there would be significant political pressure to forgive a lot of the taxes that were supposed to be legally collected even though he wasn't able to get Congress to actually pass a law cutting the tax so it would seem to me that it would set a precedent that if there was a tax, the president didn't like he could just find ways to not collect it and essentially override congress on the rules on what tax law should be I. Think this is I think this is a really substantial expansion of what the executive thinks that..

Republican allies to block expanded access that if they didn't win, it will be the biggest threat to his reelection. He went on Fox business and said in an interview and I quote.

Particular they are motivated so good luck with the strategy like keep doubling down on defunding the post office and see what happens on election day. Let's take a break I'll be back with Dory and worn at the center for community change and Meghan mcardle with the Washington Post to talk about the congressional stalemate over coronavirus aid and the president's executive orders they're supposed to get around. This is left right and. You're hearing from our left right and center, and we want to hear from you to Tweet us at LLC, kcrw, and download the free kcrw. APP to listen to left right and center on demand. I'm only unto the point. If America ever used its thousands of nuclear weapons, it would be suicidal and a nuclear war. There could be no winners. Everybody is a loser. All of civilization is at stake. We've known that for seventy five years, but our weapons of mass destruction are still on hair trigger alert and just one man president trump has the power to push the button. Is it finally time to make the world safer? An are to the point podcast Back again with left right and center, I'm Josh Barrow of New York magazine on the right is Meghan mcardle columnist at the Washington Post on the Left Historian Warren. President of the Center for Community Change at the end of last week with Republicans and Democrats unable to come to terms on a new coronavirus aid package the president signed floor executive orders that he characterized as an alternative way to support the economy. Without Congressional action at least one of these orders is likely to do more or less. What is advertise suspending payments and interest accrues on many kinds of student loans through the end of the year. Another purporting to extend a moratorium on fictions does little beyond telling federal agencies to explore what they might be able to do in this area. Then there are two orders that supposedly entail sweeping presidential action in tax and. Spending areas ordinarily reserved to Congress's power. The President says he is suspending the payroll tax for the last four months of the year even though Congress expressed approximately zero interest and a payroll tax holiday, he also says he will take tens of billions of dollars of unused disaster relief funds to pay for a partial extension of enhanced unemployment benefits with a three hundred dollar weekly enhancement instead of six hundred dollars but. There are major legal and practical barriers to these policies actually happening to discuss those indeed Gupta joins us now India's Co, executive, director of the Georgetown Center on poverty and inequality. Hyandi Hijaz underlined to be here. So let's start with the unemployment order administration officials have been saying that people on unemployment benefits dropped sharply at the end of July we'll be getting these three hundred dollar weekly enhancements pretty soon is that true? Look. This executive order is in many ways in ill-conceived it's grossly insufficient. Its yield targeted excluding some of the lowest paid workers in some of the. Generous States and I think probably illegal I. think that you'll see some states try with all the challenges already facing getting out unemployment benefits pandemic unemployment assistance benefits so. I would expect some payments to some workers in some states but this is just a tiny tiny fraction of what we could have gotten through a bipartisan agreement. But so I, guess there's two key issues here. One is legality and that issue may go unresolved because it's not clear who is going to sue whether somebody who has actually standing to be heard in the courts to suit a block this. So it might we might not ever know if it was illegal, the administration may be able to just do it anyway but there also these. These administrative issues that you allude to that it's already been difficult for state unemployment agencies to process changes to unemployment benefits rules during a time when so many more people than normal are claiming unemployment benefits. A lot of states have been basically saying that they can't implement this or that they don't know if they'll be able to implement it. My understanding is this is different from the way the last one worked it would require states to set up a new program and so even if they try to do it, how quickly is that something that they can do? That's right. Josh look the administration has had to jump through a lot of hoops in. Sort of twist aspects of the Stafford Act, which essentially governs disaster benefits and. In doing so it has put forward a program that is absolutely unprecedented it. When we talk about. Putting aside the question of whether it's legal or not. I think one of the striking aspects of the administration's executive order is that they quickly violated some aspects of the law, but then or trying to see if they can not quite violate other aspects of the law. But when they saw that states were unlikely to comply, for example, with the requirement of twenty, five percent match from states. This administration started bending over backwards to find ways to get states to participate. But at the end of the day, the administration has made clear that states can't essentially use their unemployment worker's right now. So these are the folks already running pandemic unemployment assistance in the regular unemployment insurance program unless they use them for overtime hours. So you can't have them just sort of work as they would otherwise also process claims for this new program. You'd either have to hire new workers. Engage, workers who aren't otherwise working on unemployment benefits or use these workers for overtime hours. So that alone is going to be challenging. Never mind the fact that several states I think are going to struggle with the match requirement. Megan didn't Republicans us to oppose the sort of expansion of executive power. Yes and it turns out that they'd only oppose it when they don't hold the presidency I know that all of our listeners are going to be completely shocked just as they are probably completely shocked to realize that Democrats, who really really enthusiastically endorsed Obama's really expensive and novel use of executive orders..

"It's a very serious concern and it goes to the broader discussion of when you can't win on the issues when you can't win fair and square in a competitive election. What do you do you either lie or you cheat or you de-legitimize and so this is an very explicit attempt and it's not like it's secret. The president himself has said as well as his advisor Larry Lewis Economic Advisor why they don't like voting rights why? They want to defend the post office because they think that for more people to have the chance to vote by mail, it will disadvantage them into competition in terms of the election and what we know is one, it was fun vote by mail was fine and trout to do it. Now, Sutton, there's worries and second the empirical research shows that vote by mail is a by is bipartisan behavior. The Republican Party, is not even unified on this question, the Ohio governor and other officials, and in the Republican Party want expanded by. The president and the White House and his advisors don't want it. They want to death on the post office. So this is just a blatant attempt to try to rig the rules because they cannot win on the substance of their ideas and their governance and their policies. Megan does that sound right to you? Not Exactly there's a lot going on here. So I would say the first thing is that Republicans have a long-standing antipathy to the post office because it is a sucking chest wound in in the federal budget, it's not as bad as the big entitlement programs but. They underfunded their pensions and now year by year, the revenue is not going anywhere their main business. Their most lucrative business was first class mail and it's to a first approximation. No one wants to send letters to like grandma anymore and so you know that has been a long term Republican priority. It is a difficult lift to get them to increase funding for the post office right now, the second thing is that there is an element of trump's What trump said the other day Trump's syntax is not entirely Y- there is a way to listen to that equally plausible to hear him saying they're insisting on this money for vote by mail, but I don't think we should do vote by mail. So No, I'm not going to fund something I. Don't think we should do. The third thing is that the media and Democrats are primed to go off at like the Dark Knight of Fascism descending every time trump says anything and look I. Think some of the things he said recently, incredibly disturbing his his his suggestion that we delay the the election I'm not saying that trump doesn't have authoritarian instincts I. do think that American institutions are robust to that, and I, doubt that the funding for the post office is really would standing between us and fascism the fourth thing I would say. Is that this is ridiculous, it's ridiculous on so many levels. First of all you know as Duran says, there's not any clear partisan divide but in vote by mail, it may even slightly benefit Republicans. So if for Republicans are trying to do this to voter suppression, it's the worst possible vehicle to do that. But the other thing is this too good to zoom out just a little bit. We're in the middle of a pandemic people are home more than ever before being they're getting stuff shipped to them. They need the post office it should be a noble if you can find money to do a payroll tax, not cut but deferment, then you can find twenty, five, billion dollars for. The. Post Office this is really stupid and the fact that Republicans have chosen this hill. The Diane I think does speak to the fact that they are really bad at running the election that trump has left them in such a bad way. The is unable to focus on real issues and real campaign topics, and here's where I do agree with Dorian is that like why are we talking about this? Why aren't we talking about actual issues? Why isn't Donald Trump trying to actually do something about the pandemic instead of fixating on the stupid post office during I take Megan's point that I think the President and Republicans have multiple motivations here I'm sure the president views it as a positive With the question of whether to sort of Squeeze in Starve the post office that he thinks it might interfere in an election where whatever the historical trends are. You certainly see more Democrats telling pollsters they intend to vote by mail in this election than Republicans but I I'm I'm sort of with Meghan that I doubt the efficacy of this as a strategy to actually. The election comes in part because these issues where it's like, you know, Republicans are trying to stop you from voting have historically been a galvanizing thing for Democrats trying to to build turnout, and I'm wondering about the extent to which the you know the the national furor over this that I think will only build going into the fall as people keep noticing their their mail being. Late, and obviously, elections are far from the core function of the post office and it matters in its own right If people aren't getting their mail like they're supposed to, I, just I see this is something that is likely to backfire politically on Republicans for doing it. Well, that's the problem is I think it's a stupid strategy because it will backfire and here's the part. That's that's troubling. It's true. President trump has been saying the quiet part of the strategy out. Loud. That's the problem. So he tweeted quote..

"I'm not actually sure what she really brings the ticket except not scaring off suburbanites maybe. You know the thing about Kamala Harris is that if you look at her record, it's pretty clear that she doesn't really stand for anything in particular except election she's very interested in getting elected and doing whatever she thinks will make voters happy and you saw this in the campaign where she was four Medicare for all and then choose against it and it was clear. She didn't really care about Medicare for all. What she thought was that she was assuaging the Sanders supporters that she might be able to bring them on board by standing for it. She immediately tried to walk it back when it turned out that in fact, like this scared the hell out of suburban voters. And I think that's been a pattern in her career where she's a tough prosecutor right up to the point where that becomes politically inconvenient and then she's like well I didn't mean any of that. That was mistake. And I think the problem for Biden is that he's already got those voters so up he's got the centrist voters who just want someone who's basically a Democrat but reasonably within the party platform, she doesn't bring any the activists on board. They're not very fond of her and I think that frankly it doesn't matter that much. I think he can get elected no matter who he nominates I think he could have gotten elected Bernie Sanders or She's not eligible but you know someone like that on the ticket. Because trump is so bad but I think you know. The the truth is that if Biden goes for two terms actually it is more likely than not that she will succeed him in the presidency. And that means that this matter is more than it does for normal president. You know we we spent a lot of time at the vice presidential pick because it's the last bit of drama to be running out of the election until November. But the fact is that it's not really clear that vice presidents do that much for campaigns They're just someone you have to have on the ticket. It's nice to to make a unity vote, but it's not really clear that she is. I doubt frankly that she's going to have any more power in the by administration than Biden did in the Obama Administration and I think she is going to spend a lot of time waiting for something to happen to him maybe and doing a lot of speeches but otherwise keeping a much lower profile than perhaps Kamala Harris would. Herself prefer during what do you make what? What Megan said there about it being unclear exactly. Where Kamala Harris stands ideologically something that we heard from a lot of her critics within the Democratic Party during the primary do you buy that I know that your organization has done some initiatives with her in the past? Where is commonly Harris? How progressive she? She has a record people score records, and Congress, you can look it up. Google it she's a very liberal senator. I will say and some borough will critique her for that. She's been out there leading the charge around frankly immigrant rights around. People particularly with her lift act, which was a it would expand. It earned income tax credit, which outside of social security is one of the most significant anti-poverty programs in American history. So it would expand the tax credits, provide Americans with direct cash monthly and it would expand WHO's eligible. So it's a way to essentially provide an income floor for the poorest of Americans going far up into the middle class. So she has a record just to say she has a record we could. Google it. What's interesting though as I do think, none of the old rules apply like we could have said the same thing about Donald Trump two, twenty sixteen and a twenty in the primary like he can't win because of all these political norms, he shattered the norps the norms of our political rules have been shattered and in terms of consistency what she stands for trump also has a problem. If you remember he donated six thousand dollars Tacoma Harris when he was four, her so did Ivanka. Trump now everybody's against their. So all the right has is birtherism reborn smear. Her is not being a citizen come after her nasty ad Hominem attacks calling her nasty woman. This is not a debate about ideas from the right and from the trump campaign, it is a personal attack campaign. We should acknowledge she's well in the Senate she is sponsored four bills, two of which involved memorials, one of which involves how we count deaths from emergencies and the other one waived fees are victims passport. Fees for victims of national emergencies, which she is most famous for in the Senate is, in fact, playing tough earrings rate acting like a prosecutor going after Brad Kavanagh that's where she is actually made her name. Let's. Let's talk about the issues. Let's talk about her record on on criminal justice because I mean during when I asked you about her being progressive and you go to some of her economic policy agenda items this was a key area in the primary wish where she sort of. Took heat from both sides because of the different aspects of her record Is. She. Is She a tough on crime prosecutor or is she a criminal justice reform or is she both? What do you make of that record? Is that a progressive record and does she have any issues? When talks about that? You know this this is a choice where the where Biden was not going to sort of Hugh to the center and try to appeal to swing voters does come Harris have a problem that matches some of the problem. That Biden had on the left in the primary where he's not trusted by progressive activists on certain issues as she trusted on those issues. I think that is her biggest weakness. Let's just put it out there and it's not you know it's common knowledge. She was a very aggressive prosecutor at San Francisco Da and s California Attorney General, and I would say now is the moment to turn that weakness into a strength and I actually think her strength. As. A prosecutor doesn't intimidate the trump campaign and the right because they can't just say she's a soft on crime person, which is what they love to do. It's partly why they've been bumbling in their strategy this week once she was announced because they don't know what to do with her. So I would say, how does she make that criticism that valid criticism by many people on the left and especially people in the Movement for Black Lives Okay That has been your record you really really law and order you're really aggressive. Now, how do you transform that to say look since she was a prosecutor, there has been an incredible movement for criminal justice reform that has emerged. How do you now say that was my record it was a different time I have seen the light and I'm going to be the biggest advocate of criminal justice reform going forward that would mobilize particularly black voters in this moment. Megan I think Dorian is right about the the response to Comma from Republicans being a little bit flailing in the past week, and I think this is a key area. It's they can't decide. Do they want to attack her a soft on crime or as someone who was too tough on crime and the thing is if you put both of those attacks out at the same time, you can sort of make her look like a person in the sensible center. You can. But you can also make her look like which she is, which is someone who is tough on crime when she was running voters like that and so she was tough on crime when it was rewarding at the ballot box when she was as soon as she left office, she stopped being tough on crime and this is sort of like the Kerry John Kerry. I voted for the bill before I, voted against it. and. I, think that really does describe her political career pretty pretty accurately. But again, I don't think it matters that much I think that you know this is something that we're going to focus on for a few days. But attacking Biden's vice presidential choice is just fundamentally not gonNA move the dial for voters. I WanNa talk a little bit about the post office because the president appointed a political supporter to be postmaster general since he did that there's been a lot of concern about changes implemented nominally to save money that. Are Delaying Mail delivery in certain places, the post office has instructed employees to avoid overtime until it unsorted mail sit for delivery the following day instead adjusting their schedules to sort it. The president has continued to attack mail in voting, and instead the post office doesn't have the financial resources to handle a surge of mail in ballots even as he blocks democratic proposals for financial assistance to the post office, this has a lot of Democrats alarmed about the possibility that his actions will lead to undelivered and rejected ballots in an. Election Democrats are especially likely to vote by mail during how serious a concern is this..

"This is Josh, Barrow and welcome to left right and center. You're civilized yet provocative antidote. The self contained opinion bubbles that dominate political debate. It is the second week of August and this week Joe Biden got a running mate California Senator Comma Harris. The Biden campaign mentioned does a lot of public suspense before settling on the most obvious choice a choice that fits well within the Biden campaign strategy of avoiding unnecessary risks and trying to appeal to his broader swath of the electorate as possible unlike. A lot of the other candidates that Biden considered Harris has a big national profile and the typical level of experience that you would expect if someone of vice president or president, she's been vetted through the media and her strengths and weaknesses as a candidate are well known. So most likely no surprises here. Harris alienates few potential Biden voters unlike other possible who might have been seen as too far to the left or too close to the center she's also a historic pick should be the first woman. To serve as vice president and she's the first black woman and first Asian American person ever on a major party national ticket. This isn't a contradiction but I think it says something interesting about where we are as a country that she is both a historical pick in this way, and also the safest most consensus candidate that Biden could have chosen to talk about that I want to bring in our left right and center panel is always I'm your center I'm joined by Meghan mcardle calmness the. Washington Post on the right and left Dory and Warren President of the Center for Community Change Hello Great to be with you thanks for having me during what do you make of the choice of Comma Harris I think it's fascinating and exciting from a democratic and progressive perspective because it shows I that Democrats aren't making the same mistake they did in two thousand sixteen by attempting to appeal to we might think of as a nonexistent swing voter by taking no risks as essentially what Hillary Clinton did. This pick shows that I think the Democratic Party and former Vice President Joe Biden in particular are recognizing that Americans I want leadership that reflects the diversity of the country and that this could potentially be a. Pick for base voters I want to go back to something you said at the top Josh around the most obvious pig let's just remember. I don't think we would say this is the most obvious pick. So it's sort of a side of how much at least the Democratic Party has shifted over the last four years and frankly the country and then I think on the other side in terms of the Republican Party in the trump campaign. I think they'd have a strategy for her and so I think what we're now seeing as their bumbling around trying to you know, use all sorts of epithets and birtherism to Plano and Castro's non-citizens. There's just a lot of Michigan that's happening on the other side because I don't think they expected this conventional wisdom pick to be the pick. During I thought one thing that was interesting about this choice because the president said that he was surprised that Biden Pick Kamala Harris which is. A little weird because it was she was presumably leading the VP veepstakes the the whole way through. But I think that trump looks at this and there's a significant risk that Harris overshadows biden on the ticket and certain ways. Certainly Republicans already one of the things they're saying about it is that you know it's really really she's going to be running the show and then it's this weird double thing where she's going to be running the show and then she herself as a puppet of. And the left and that sort of thing but it's Certainly she. She has such a high profile and there are certain Democrats who are also eager for that sort of narrative basically that you know people who weren't that eager about Biden in the primary Maybe they see this as Harris is the thing that is motivating them here, and so I think that the trump but frankly a lot of other politicians would have looked at that and said, you know I want a pick that really says that I'm in charge I don't want people to be able to say that I'm overshadowed by vice presidential candidate and I think it's interesting that Biden wasn't. Wasn't put off by that and went ahead and chose her I. think it shows a certain maturity and if you think about what trump is predictably doing, he's calling her meat he's he's using all his favorite sexist attacks. He's sort of like the boy who cried wolf. These things about so many women nasty women. It's a rerun of the last time. A woman pissed him off and Biden picking. Harris. Shows a level of maturity and willingness to work with those who have differences compared to themselves as remember. Harris criticized Biden on his shortcomings and instead of whining and crying about it like the the crybaby and the White House he chose to work with our in picker knowing the full risk that she might overshadow him I think we should all be taking notes of that kind of political maturity. The other point here is for all the attacks that are gonNA come comma. Harris on Senator Harris. On the one hand there, you could make the case that there's a question empirical question will she be pre? We'll see increase turnout among particularly black voters are not on the other hand, the more trump attacks, her the more. There will be a rallying fact around her Megan, what do you make of this?.

"Today Joe Biden and Kamala Harris made their first appearance together as running mates for the Democratic presidential ticket. CARMELA. As you all know is smart. She's tough. She's experienced. She's a proven fighter for the backbone of this country. The middle class for all those who are struggling to get into the middle class. Connell. Knows how to govern. She knows how to make the hard calls. She's ready to do this job on day one. After the most competitive primary in history. The country received a resounding message that Joe was the person to lead US forward. and. Joe. I'm so proud to stand with you. And I do so mindful. Of all the ROIC ambitious women before me. Who sacrifice determination and resilience makes my presence here today even possible. This is a moment. Of Real consequence for America, Harris's pick is historic and has prompted reactions from around the World Harris's father is Jamaican. Her mother is from India. She's the first black woman and the first woman of South Asian ancestry on a major party presidential ticket in the US Also, Reacting Wall Street. Financial leaders were anxiously awaiting Joe Biden's pick for vice president, our tech money and politics reporter Emily Glaser has been speaking to many of them and joins me now. So Emily you bet on the phone with business leaders all day. How would you characterize their reaction? This leaders are generally really happy that Comma Harris was chosen as Biden's VP pick for a couple of reasons. But basically, they view her as a pragmatic person or realist who while she has been tough on big. Business in the past looks at the nuance issues and takes each thing at a time versus having a blanket approach as you know, the wealthiest bad or big businesses bad. We've seen president trump and his campaign try to paint Senator Harris as a radical left wing Pick Wall Street doesn't seem to see it that way. Definitely not a lot of what I. Heard from folks on the phone text messages emails. But that she's moderate, she sent her even though people don't like using those words that much anymore and that's similar to how they think about Biden and a lot of the reasons why think financial leaders are happy and pleased and cheering on this Harris pick is that she does represent a move away from. The. Far Left Progressive Part of the Democratic Party the part that Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Are In and so they're relieved that you know things like more financial regulation or really taking back see right now it's all about economic recovery and harassed and Biden have said they think big business is good if the economy recovers and business recovers, that's good for. Everybody. You know it's interesting because after Biden made his announcement yesterday, we heard Praise from people like Senator Warren and Senator Sanders. We know Senator Harris has pledged to be tough on big banks as California Attorney General. She pushed for a big settlement with banks for their role in the foreclosure crisis. What about her record makes Wall Street thinks she's a moderate. It's a great question look like you said, she's touted her tough on banks record. But when you actually break it down, what folks in the financial community are saying is that she's made no secret that there's wrongdoing she will prosecute her background as a prosecutor, but it's also important to keep in mind that her big bank settlement was very nuanced and she did claim a lot of credit for it got brought a lot to. The State of California but we had reported earlier last year that she wasn't always really doing as much of the substance of the negotiations and she was doing a lot that solidified. The Big Bank settlement is helping her record as a politician. So when I spoke with bankers and financial executives last night and today they were saying look she's GonNa take swings at us. We get that it's politics. We're not gonNA take it personally. When there's wrongdoing you know she says she's going to prosecute. We got that but she's not going to have a blanket approach as all banks are bad or all wealthy people are bad. What were some of her other policies on the campaign trail and what do they tell us about her stance toward the financial industry. Healthcare was a really big wine and let's not forget healthcare with the most important issue on the campaign trail. Now, in coronavirus times, it's shifted more to economic recovery. But Harris struggled with this event she failed to really clearly state what her plan was initially, and then once she did she basically said she would have a government run health care plan that would still allow for private insurers an even mentioned that she proposed taxing financial transactions to pay for that. Health care overhaul. So that's something that certainly is out there would really impact the financial sector. Another one that was really big was her so called three. I'm agenda in the beginning of the primary when she was on the trail, she often would attack president trump a lot but she changed strategies partway through an efforts to really appeal more to the every man, every woman and the middle class and mentioned things like gender pay equality breezing teacher salaries and things. Like that that she hoped would get her more voters. She's also being welcomed warmly from the tech world. What can you tell us about that? You know, let's not forget that Kamla Harris has been a politician California in the bay area for a while she was district attorney. She was Attorney General She's been California senator since two thousand sixteen she knows tech executives in Silicon Valley and his raise money from them for her races for a number of years she. Also, lives part time in southern. California with her husband Doug Hav who is an corporate entertainment lawyer. So she's got these deep ties to the media telecom tech and entertainment world folks that have fundraise for her for years. They know her they think she's tough but fair and are very excited and already planning fundraisers now that she's the VP pick, she's also shown that she can raise big bucks from Wall Street donors. How might that help the Biden campaign overall? I think it will help double down on a lot of the money that they need. I saw an invite for recent fundraiser that has the high amount at two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. This is big money we're talking about a lot of the Biden fundraisers in recent weeks have raised millions while Harris and Biden do overlap on a lot of donors whether from the financial tech media entertainment world, a lot of them have known. Harris. For a really long time supported her during the primary and may be willing to give even more money than they already have to the Biden campaign now that she's on the ticket. That was WSJ's tuck money and politics reporter Emily Glazer. And finally, if you canceled a flight because of the pandemic and you're still waiting on a refund, you're not alone. As struggling airline's cling to cash billions of dollars in.

"And now for the news that took over the Internet yesterday Joe Biden has announced Kamla Harris as his vice presidential pick. She shared the moment on twitter today. I started. Keith you. Right, you ready to go to work Harris was Biden's expected choice for vp but maybe not the most progressive option in the past she said that she's not a democratic socialist distancing herself from the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democratic Party, her tax proposals have included a six thousand dollar tax credit to families making less than one hundred, thousand dollars a year and eliminating tax cuts for corporations in the top one. Percents that said, her policies are likely to Echo Biden's on the campaign trail as Biden's former competitor Comma Harris is on record criticizing him as is often the case in a presidential campaign. One of her most well known critiques was in the First Democratic primary debate a little over a year ago when she took on Biden's record of working with senators who supported segregation I do not believe you are a racist. And I agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of minden common ground but I also believe and it's personal and I was actually very was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country miscarriage my position across the board I did not praise racist it's not true. Is President Biden. Today do you agree today? That you were wrong to oppose blessing in. America. Do you agree now the election itself, it'll be one like no other in a year like no other in the CNBC change research states of play survey only about fifty percent of those polled expressed confidence in mail and voting during the pandemic at any rate Carmela Harris pack has stirred up this role reactions from Washington choose probably Nastier than even Pocahontas to Joe Biden I would think that he would have picked to Wall Street to California her home state and all the social media posts in between we. Heard from Illinois Senator Dick Durbin. The Democratic Whip. This is the first of two interviews today on box about Biden. Harris. Twenty twenty. Here's Andrew Ross Sorkin good morning to you San Juan. We do want to understand how you think this changes the dynamic not just of the election if you think it does. But in terms of her positions on the economy, you go back and you look back when she was running against a Biden G had a number of different views one of which was to to. To tax trading on wall. Street. For example, what do you think our impact is going to be in terms of policy? Well, first things first a heartbeat away from the presidency issue ready. Attorney General for the largest state in the United States of America of member of the Senate, as well as the Judiciary Committee intelligence? Committee I didn't working with for years. I can tell you though she's not high in seniority. She was very high mutual respect we have four her. Internal for political. Views. Let's be honest Joe Biden is going to be the leader of the effort and leader that decision making she's going to be an integral part of it in terms of the campaign couldn't ask for more. Here's a proven national candidate in spin around. In worked up my state as well as others jazz a march France are now excited us can be joining stuff. Center. What what do you make though of some of the personal interpersonal dynamics intramural squabbling at play? There was a view that one of the things that Vice President Biden wanted was a partner in the same kind of partnership way that he had. With, with with with President Obama and some skepticism about whether, he's going to have that same kind of relationship given some of the public shots they have taken frankly at each other or that she has taken at him in a view that she may be. She may have even greater aspirations you might, as you might imagine and. That creates trust a trust issue I said word about Biden Obama. I was involved in the early stages of the Obama presidential campaign sitting in our view with him in Florida with the League Legal Pad, checking off the names of potential running mates. So I kind of knew the process from the beginning he made the final decision for sure and relationship between Biden Obama started burger it turned out to be great and I think the relationship between. Joe Biden, income the Harris is going to mature and evolve in that same way. Normal people don't understand sometimes this world politicians. We can fight like cats and dogs. We comes to primaries Victor and the day after the primary decision decided that personally just ahead, the heated words with is going to be an ally in something burning important huge. That's the nature of this business. You can disagree with someone just disagreeable. What what do you make of the idea and it's it's a critique from the left. E.. Even more left if you will that that this. that. This ticket. Is it is almost to moderate. I can just tell you this. There is a level of commitment energy enthusiasm to bring a new president to the United States of America likes the which I had never seen in terms of the left and the Democrat. Party early, Sanders has been a trooper since he's withdrawn met with by working movers forward to make sure we have victory November third, we are trying to tell everybody here whatever your minor differences may be. We have a major responsibility to bring new leadership since. The move this country forward to rebuild this economy and first foremost deal with his coronavirus. In fact away you know this audience. Senator is a oftentimes business audience business interests trying to understand what it means to the economy, what it means to business what made me to the markets. Speak to her views about. Wall Street and banks. You know one of the first things that that that Biden put out about her was that she took on the big banks. Clearly. There's questions about taxes and then as you just said, you know Bernie Sanders getting behind. How how much does Biden get behind? Bernie Sanders put out a plan just last week to tax billionaires who've made money during the pandemic. Judgment on whether any of those things are good or bad. I'm just wondering where you think the the the Biden ticket will ultimately come out on those issues. Let. Me Tell you this to my friends in the business. The biggest single devastating statistic, which you should remember it as this United States has between four and five percent of the world's population we have twenty five percent of Kobe infections. The rest of the world is looking to the United States will say, what have you been doing for six months? A lot of doing things which have reduced the rate of infection and death in our counties starting to recover the United States still other wrote in many respects. So from our friends the business candidate please don't overlook the obvious we needed a leader who can mobilize and Unify the American people in in striking you into this corona vars that as we move forward, we need to build jobs good paying jobs in America I know Joe Biden come Harrison community to them. I hope my friends in the business community. Realize that is a key or our democracy restored for generations skull and talking about our our economy just tell us where you think the stimulus measures really stand right now after president trump put those executive orders in place I know there's obviously a big fight about that. But what's the Betty? What's your betting line on? Where this goes, we made it clear with our leadership close in Shimmer were willing to go halfway. That's the nature of compromise.

"Two axes today. Big News with the big ten for many people. The start of college sports. This fall was supposed to be a return to some sort of normal. But after months of coming up with failed solutions to deal with the health crisis, go to college conferences have postponed their seasons. Jeff Tracy is a sports reporter at Axios? Jeff. What's the latest well as you said, the big. Big, Ten and PAC twelve have officially decided to postpone their fall seasons. That's football and their other sports. Those are two of the really big college football conferences, the others being the big twelve, the SEC and the ACC and those other three are still going on as plan to actually try to go forward with their fall schedules. What about the financial implications of this? I mean financial implications are massive college football really does fund the rest of the school in many cases with TV deals that are in the billions of dollars, and so losing this season is huge. It can't be understated. How big of a financial problem that really is for a lot of these schools in what our players saying do they WANNA play? Oh. Yeah. Players Really WanNA. Play although they WANNA play. If. Health is the first and foremost thing on the schools and teams minds. They've been discussing forming a union, which is a huge thing for these athletes who are obviously unpaid, very talented athletes who make a ton of money for their schools and they've started to sort of realize that they have a little bit more power than maybe their schools would hope they had realized so I definitely do not. Not think that we've seen the last of efforts to get a little bit more of the Pie that they feel that they're earning. Of course, at the heart of all of this is the idea of player health and I wonder what we're learning now about the potential long-term effects of the virus on any professional athletes who've had it and recovered yet Eduardo Rodriguez, he's a pitcher for the Boston red. Red Sox, he got the coronavirus and recovered from it and actually pitched the first game of the season this year, and then he was shut down and it turns out that he has Myocarditis, which is heart inflammation, and that's really scary, and that's the professional athlete. At least he's taken care of financially if we're talking about college kids who already are fighting to earn any scrap of money they can. Can, and suddenly there may be going to be asked to to play a sport that could cause them to get this virus that could ruin their lives. Really I mean, even athletes in the peak of their physical condition can get really really scary complications and when you're talking about football players who are these really big hulking guys. That's a lot of weight to put on a potentially damaged heart. Tracy covers sports axios. Before we leave you today. Every August the earth passes through a field of ice and dust from comet swift tuttle. And as that debris burns, it creates a brilliant meteor shower. It's called the PERSEUS and it's lit up the night sky for the last two, thousand years. The Earth moves through this dream in the same part of its orbit each year. So the perseus are always active in our sky during the second half, of July, and most of August. Last night was the start of its peak, but you'll be able to see some fireballs through the next week.

And so that is the goal here is to try to provide a little bit more own to both the US and the global economy but there are questions about how much help can provide given the rates have been at a very low level for a long time time and so you know the question is maybe interest rate. Increases still slow down the economy but you don't see the same benefit when rates. Go down so that's one of the questions to be determined here okay. That's the feds side. You've talked to a few business owners. How did they feel about an interest. straight cut helping their business or not helping their business. Most businesses say look. We'll take it we borrow money. We have debt lower. Debt costs will help at the margins sure but what they really want to see is there orderbook turning around that hasn't been the case for a lot of manufacturers US firms in the construction sector this year and so the real question the real test is going to be can not just the Fed but other U._S. U._S. Policymakers put global growth back on a better track because it has been slowing down quite a bit this year Europe Europe and Asia are not looking good some of that could be because the trade tariffs and other disruptions in supply chains from the trade negotiations is ongoing it could also reflect the fact that the Fed raised interest rates several times in two thousand seventeen and twenty eighteen and that also is You know going to slow down the economy strengthens the dollar which tends to make it more expensive for exports and and a lot of other countries have debt in dollars so it can slow down growth in emerging market economies. That's The Wall Street Journal's Nick. Tim Rose speaking with with Charlie Turner U._S. stocks fell on Wednesday.
