China State Media Says Biden's Early Policy 'Smacks of Trumpism'

"Campaign Republicans sought to portray Joe Biden is likely to be soft on China, but an editorial in Chinese state media this past week Says the Biden administration policy toward Beijing Quote smacks of Trumpism Bloomberg Economics reporter Shawn Donnan has been tracking trade policy. He joins me now for some insight into what to expect, Shawn. It is always a pleasure. Thanks so much for joining me. Thanks so much for having me. Okay, let's start on Capitol Hill. Lawmakers considering Biden administration nominees, including Katherine Tie By those pick for U. S Trade representative. You've been following this hearing. What is your takeaway Ben from her appearance before lawmakers. It's really interesting. What we're seeing from the Biden administration is a real change in tone around trade. At the very least, we're still not Getting a whole lot of specificity in terms of what sorts of policies they're going to do. What Tangible steps they're going to take when it comes to dealing with China and other trade problems that they threw US faces But way heard from Katherine Tie this week is a real effort to portrayed administration. That wants the focus on getting rid of the chaos and trade policy that some people, really, especially in the business community, really agonized about what kids Trump administration and moving towards something more delivered is more process driven. Uh, probably smarter is their their their idea. Now she had made a pretty strong case for China to live up to the trade agreement. It has already eat with then President Trump. Where's that now? Yeah. So we're in this really interesting situation. Where President Trump if you remember in January of 2020 find this deal with the Chinese. He called the phase one deal in which the Chinese committed to, uh, to step up their purchases of American products. Everything from farm Exports to airplanes and other manufacturer kids on go also to make some changes and how they enforced intellectual property rules. And so on. And then, of course, we got the pandemic and everything kind of went askew. Um, but one of the big questions surrounding the Biden administration coming in is are they gonna make, you know? Are they gonna Look at that deal and use that as the basis of the economic relationship with China and the way that the Trump administration with them. Are they gonna seek to make China live up to that deal, and it's purchased commitments and other things like opening up its market financial services companies out of the U. S also You know the type provisions? Well, what we heard from Katherine tie this week. Is that well, that's the deal that we have with China, and that's the deal that we're gonna be. We're gonna be asking them tow live up to you. So that's the first step. We know that they're gonna Um, they're gonna enforce that deal. That's what Katherine pies signaling. But then there are all these questions about what comes back. Of course, Phase One implies that there's a phase two. And right now, this huge questions about whether we ever see of face to agreement, and that's gonna be down to what the Biden administration chooses to do it face to agreement would really get into some of the structural issues. In the relationship and the ways that China competes unfairly, according to American businesses, And those are things like the subsidies that the Chinese Communist Party gives to, Uh both state and private companies and united China in the form of cheap electricity. Cheap loans on Shawn So you know, we're getting a little bit of a hint, but a lot of questions still left Now, a lot of this and you touched on this briefly. I want to dig a little bit deeper. These agreements are often about enforcement, not just words. But how they're going to have some teeth now, What are you expecting from the Biden administration when it comes to trade with China and enforcing those deals? Yeah. So one of the features that Bob Lighthizer of the President Trump's U. S trade representative was very proud of in the China agreement was an enforcement mechanism that there was a way for the US to, uh hold China accountable and impose tariffs and another punitive measures. If China didn't live up to the deal, we don't yet know what the Biden administration is going to do. We haven't yet had that situation. Where, Um, we're looking at an enforcement case. But that's ah, huge question that we also know that the Biden administration may choose to take another route in terms of enforcing a deal like this or taking on China, another in other issues. Trafford Ty used to be the chief China enforcement officer at the U. S Trade representative. Office. She's the one she was the lawyer who was literally arguing before the World Trade Organization cases on behalf of the US against China. One thing she said this week is that By administration expect to engage and take a leadership role at the World Trade Organization again. And so that means that the administration made may choose to go there rather than the bilateral route, which kind of took the U. S and China outside of the existing global trade rules.

A decision House Republican Conference chair Liz Cheney says is up to that organization, he says we fell in January, 6 I don't. I don't believe you should be playing a role for the party.

Takeaways from Congress’ first Washington DC hearing on Capitol riot

"What went wrong looking into the security lapses. That happened before the Capitol riot last month with us to talk about the latest on these hearings on Capitol Hill is CNN, Washington correspondent Ryan Nobles. He joins us on Skype. So Ryan, these investigations are really just beginning. But have we learned anything so far? What the takeaways from day one. Yesterday's hearing was pretty explosive on many levels. Nick you heard from many of these officials from the various law enforcement agencies, some who have been forced out of their jobs. About what went wrong on that day. And what was perhaps the most shocking was that there was intelligence on the table that some of these agencies, the FBI and other agencies had taken in a lot of social media chatter from people that had said that they were specifically Coming to Washington with the goal of storming or causing chaos at the Capitol, and that information never made its way down to Capitol police sergeant in arms on other various law enforcement agencies, the Washington metro, much Politan Police department and they were never able to use that information to help prepare and as a result, they you know, the these leaders just were not prepared for the overwhelming crush of people that descended on the Capitol that day. On and you basically what lawmakers came to the conclusion that there needs to be a better flow of information to the folks that are gonna be making decisions about how to protect the capital in the future. There was some finger pointing that occurred yesterday, too, and that's getting a lot of attention. Yeah, That's right. You know, you had Capitol police saying something different What this Senate sergeant at arms, said Metropolitan Police seem to have a different perception is to have that information flow came down. And then one of the big things Joan that no one seemed to be able to agree on is when the National Guard was called in for reinforcement in and why it took so long for the National Guard to actually make it to the capital. To help protect the members of Congress and people that were at the Capitol. And then why the National Guard wasn't there even ahead of all of this s O. You know, this is just the beginning of this process. You know, this is one hearing, they said today or yesterday should say that there's gonna be another hearing that will involve the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. And then, of course, Speaker Pelosi is in the process of drafting legislation that would form a 9 11 style commission to look into all of this. It's gonna be a long time before you know all the information comes out as to what exactly went wrong in January Sex. Okay,

"You know too little too often right. I heard you mention the would d platforming. Can you tell us what that means. Yeah sure i mean. I don't have the very Like an academic. I'm standing of it. The my understanding of it as a person is about. It's a sort of like Action you can take against like people whose views a harmful and necessarily You know and it should be should be done when they're definitely going to be violence Yes so essentially sort of like you know access to a platform so that could be like i'm Like say i was a regular host on your show If i suddenly tend to not so you keeping your show Be meeting performed so That also can apply to Twitter and facebook They by let's take some come that form a and i guess pro. Trump supporters are saying that d platforming trump is like an infringement on their freedom of speech. And it's a form of censorship. Would you say I think censorship really applies to I mean as far as like the like. I mean i'm not a constitutional lawyer but as far as i understand it. The like the context. Censorship applies to government censorship. In the us and it it doesn't apply to companies Choosing how You know how platforms And you saw tun status. I think all this is ridiculous. 'cause i don't think we should See so much of our al freedoms to corporations or governments necessarily but You know like the thing is that They like these. These companies are entitled and legally on legally entitled suicide economies that for them It's not what the first amendment's about It's not it's not it's got nothing to do with You know legal rights. Americans have but The real thing that they are. It's it's just a it's just something that they scream about to try to get some purchase. In my opinion it should be or really because The the real thing that them out about it they they don't have They're being told that they can't do their nazi stuff out in the open anymore and they're also losing an effective tool that Also listening and effective tool which know help them organize and helps them playing things that will like you know like physical actions which that will get them what they want. And as far as i'm concerned like i the the argument is and we should Just recognize that it's It's disingenuous in an attack for what is not when is that. They say that they're doing which is protecting free speech. And because it's so easy to dunk on these people for being Credits right because you like. Oh this isn't free speech. Is it like you know like it's so easy to do but i. I think that's not really necessary. Because then you get bogged down into some this This discourse which is not really what it's What they're actually trying to say if you could go back a bit earlier when you were talking about michael mccomb cormac and him kind of comparing black lives matter to what happened at the capitol hill. I'm there were politicians who came out and we're like no cormac saying Inflammatory it's not like it's not this is on ustralian is an shelly and and can you also see something like what happened in the us. Happening here i'm like i don't think It's like strategy. Seems to be a very slow moving political place. Like i don't think i'm i feel like if we were coming to that sort of like Like open political violence. I think something probably would give before that because like i mean even Mr neoliberalism scott morrison like a job seeker before like letting us little stop know must killed in to do so but like you know you get it So i typically think You know political violences is less likely In the same way that we're seeing in the us But that is not to say that like it isn't australia is like decided that it's on astrology and be like You know black people's lives. Timeout is like totally false because It's a very nicely so this rally we will we were born on. This country was born out of like dispossession genocide You know like the absolute disregard for black bodies in this country black lives and to say it's a strategy is wrong It's against that. What else stated values is multiculturalism accepting everyone but if you look poss- what people say and like how people actually acted It's it's hard to think about. This country actually is accepting does want to sort of be a successful pluralist You know like ethnically clearly this country because it's not really you know it's still We still have like by people You know black. Be la k. I'm digits people being killed by police in disproportionate numbers the showing additional disproportionate numbers and You know all the closing. The gap targets Not really closing It it's hard to say that like that's not what australia is because it is what we like. We your country but You know it's just a it's easy you know. It's what they really trying to say. I guess like it's not what it it wants to be. No one none of us to be like that Except for you know obviously benefit from it but It's just Yeah i think it's a stupid thing to say understand why they Absolutely and no one ever wants to see themselves as like a racist nation wakes up and goes oh where racist country on like the kennedy. What numbers as well which is really really powerful austrailia So you read this article. That i was having a read of in the junky. It's called the westwood liquor. Neil liberalism and white supremacy and. It's destroying us so Just like at the start of your article. Just want to quote a line that you say that i feel like i'd love you to expand on so you say the insurrectionists didn't wake up on january six and simply decide to walk in the seat of power of the republic i'm where does neoliberalism fit in what we saw last week or show complicated question but I'll try to be six distinct possible but Anyway i'm like. I think you can join a very clear line from the like from the alien nation and the The deteriorating or stagnating conditions of like you know the average person in Just like every country in the west and the the racist like that was saying against minorities like these like over the past fifty years coming into sort of like you know Engaged on this This This project sort of like saying okay. So what we're going to do is we're going to get get our hands out of all these services to provide and the private companies do it And you know sort of in doing this. Like i like outcomes have not necessarily going up apart from you. Know like the wealth of shareholders and executives. And all that sort of thing so you sort of watching like the costs who like really rule loss get better and better but like with stack nettie like how you know for someone like me.

Police haven't been here and almost a week, and this has just become a complete sprawl of activists and a Lotta people joining in on kind of taken over this major intersection. There's a lot of people here tonight and it's probably one of the busier nights. So tell me now where you are. Is this being called Chaz or is it chop? You know that is is a bit of confusion.

We're not trying to separate ourselves from the United States, and so the name has now been called the Capitol Hill organized protests. Also debate some people calling it the occupied protests. As of right now, the very latest is people saying you know this is not an autonomous zone. This is an organized protest. Okay, and this all started about a week ago. Right Casey. Last Sunday night there was still tear gas and Flashbang right here in this intersection and Monday night. The police were called out of the East precinct. They left around six o'clock.

"I actually am sort of a Weirdo Curto in that I actually came out of school with my MBA. And so I didn't start off in politics. I started off as an associate buyer at macy's and there's a black woman and these two shutouts and that's right. I used to be the MS neck wear buyer. But they're at a black woman boss who in there were not a lot of us in our space in for you to make it to buy or was a really big deal and she would be on me to not touch my keep my mouth when trying to build an excel sheet. She said use the She was stand over me and like make me use the control keys. That was very important because when I had so much of the job up I needed to be quick and I need to be fast. And she trained me privately. She was hard on me privately. I had to present. And she would make me present to her and I would you know so basically wannacry baseball but you know I thank God that she was tough and got together privately and then when we were or in the presentation she totally had my bag. I mentioned earlier. Cars Wilson when we started in DC. She looked at me she said Keenan. You're going to have a hard time. I'm in DC and you know she's like A soothsayer in this and she said to me she said you liked to get things done and people don't always like I to get things done and I just want you to prepare yourself for that. But and she mentored me in that way and then like Angela mention there. The men in my life like other mill hill staffers at our friends they joke in there. Like you guys got this underground Rogo and of women because we get together and we you know we figured out if you want to have women of Color in jobs. They've gotTA know about it. They've got to be prepared for it and you've got to tell women there's some science behind you know this about asking. Women got ask woman run like seven times or something similar the jobs I figured out that. You've gotTa tell US staffer a woman of color. I could see you as the L. D. four and she's like really I don't know if I'm not I'm not ready and you have to be a sort of inside. No I think you can do this. And then I've been the benefactor of that sort of thing I would say for me. I think having other women of Color in your office office actually helps a lot when you're not the only one to provide a counter in terms of the advice that other people are giving you so I remember you know. So in my first 'til office when I was working for Senator Hagan and had a conversation and my ldl was like you don't need to go to Grad School. You could just you know. Just pounded for several years whatever work it out CETERA and there was a black woman who was in. La My office and She pulled me to the side and she she was like. Don't listen to him. He's a white man. You're black woman. You're going to Grad school because they're paying for it and you're gonNA come back and it's going to be fine and then that was like such valuable experience to be able to hear just just in terms of somebody breaking down like the rules that exists for one group do not not necessarily exists for you in a very sad reality but it's true and sometimes you need somebody to share that reality with you so so like everybody here. I have two sets all start with. I think the very first black woman that I saw that like just made me be like I. I need to be like this. I was a baby. Staffer work for the Blackhawks. I was this song and she was communications director and she did very similar. Things pulled me to the side but there were a couple of key things that I just sort sort of stuck out throughout my whole career so the one. She went away for like a month and I was like a staff assistant. I was green and Shit. And she said to me like you're going to have to deal with press while I'm away for a little bit. I knew that on the hill to give your contact list was was a big deal. You know you're not supposed to give me she goes. These are my relationships and I have worked very hard to maintain them. And you can't can't take that away from me so remember that throughout your career. So that's one moment and I think that that has really I do that. Every single thing I do. He was probably the longevity of my career has sort of existed because I build real relationships with people and in a transactional world and we would all all admit that. That's sort of my gift in that. I've learned to do that over and over again by the second one is sort of you know Dubbed from this is that we have what we call like our sister mentors So there was when I was middle of career. We were sort of looking around and we're reliable. Who's our hose are the person that we're going to model our career actor and I think you know I? This was when I mean I don't know ten fifteen years ago there. This room would not exist. It wouldn't have and so we really took care of each other. We found jobs for each other. We corrected everybody's resumes. We found like we would push you when you were crying. We'd pick people back up. I mean and it has stopped throughout these years and I think even now when someone quits his job or is not doing well we figure out ways even just like we'll find them seat mommy or a contract position or whatever it is that allows them to stay in this work but also that Ab- lifts them and reminds him that there's somebody else said Is Looking out for them. I think that that was that was a harder lesson to learn throughout my career is like sort of the. Take that leap. But it's a lot easier when you have a soft paste the land with a group group of women who are taking care of you and I have so many women obviously but the one that comes to mind That has impacted me. Most recently gently is my predecessor The woman who had the job before I did The chief of staff role is Linda ship and She was also an API. Okay woman In this leadership position and she was really the first time that I saw what A woman of Color An API woman could look like in leadership she was you know she was serious. She was always had the right answer. She was so good about providing feedback and she was a strong leader but then she was also compassionate. So I think she showed me a lot about how to emulate that and be That type of manager and leader as well and you all have hit on this and some way or another but it is being the only round round the room and the lack of diversity on Capitol Hill and it has has gotten better but we know there's always room for improvement and all of you have really great important roles.

He was probably the longevity of my career has sort of existed because I build real relationships with people and in a transactional world and we would all all admit that. That's sort of my gift in that. I've learned to do that over and over again by the second one is sort of you know Dubbed from this is that we have what we call like our sister mentors So there was when I was middle of career. We were sort of looking around and we're reliable. Who's our hose are the person that we're going to model our career actor and I think you know I? This was when I mean I don't know ten fifteen years ago there. This room would not exist. It wouldn't have and so we really took care of each other. We found jobs for each other. We corrected everybody's resumes. We found like we would push you when you were crying. We'd pick people back up. I mean and it has stopped throughout these years and I think even now when someone quits his job or is not doing well we figure out ways even just like we'll find them seat mommy or a contract position or whatever it is that allows them to stay in this work but also that Ab- lifts them and reminds him that there's somebody else said Is Looking out for them. I think that that was that was a harder lesson to learn throughout my career is like sort of the. Take that leap. But it's a lot easier when you have a soft paste the land with a group group of women who are taking care of you and I have so many women obviously but the one that comes to mind That has impacted me. Most recently gently is my predecessor The woman who had the job before I did The chief of staff role is Linda ship and She was also an API. Okay woman In this leadership position and she was really the first time that I saw what A woman of Color An API woman could look like in leadership she was you know she was serious. She was always had the right answer. She was so good about providing feedback and she was a strong leader but then she was also compassionate. So I think she showed me a lot about how to emulate that and be That type of manager and leader as well and you all have hit on this and some way or another but it is being the only round round the room and the lack of diversity on Capitol Hill and it has has gotten better but we know there's always room for improvement and all of you have really great important roles. So what are some ways that you working to make sure you're not the only brown rural no room and bringing people along with your especially those younger staffers color..
