And I believe her dress was actually handmade by her mother for her. So that makes it even more special. You came up with this hashtag tweet your thoughts. How did this all start? So I was really excited when I heard that she was gonna wear her dress at her swearing in. And then the backlash on Twitter was immediate and fierce people were calling it. I American nasty comments about promoting sharia law and Palestinian heritage, and these sorts of unbelievable things because she's Muslim because she she's Muslim. Right. And so what can I say me, for example, there's so much diversity among Palestinians. I'm a Palestinian Christian. So I decided that I wanted to try to promote awareness of what this dress means and a little bit about Palestinian culture. So I'm had this movement to sort of educate people. And also celebrate her chief man they were people who participated in our campaign who were Jewish who are Muslim who were Christian Buddhists who were eight Theus what were your favorites? Or what were the things that? You're seeing I saw several women who posted pictures of their. Sobh's that had been made by their great-grandmothers. One woman posted a soap that was a hundred years old. People asking questions about what the dresses mean. Actually the other day. We just posted a map of Palestinian areas that somebody made an on the map is superimposed the pieces of fabric. So you can look at address and see where the person is from based on the map. Oh, wow. And what did you tweet? I tweeted a picture of myself wearing a beautiful job that I just received last year from my aunt and she had made for me in the West Bank. And I was thrilled to wear that. So it wasn't just congresswoman snap who wore cultural. Garments Representative Deb Holland. Who's one of the first native American women in congress along with cherise? David's she wore traditional Pueblo address Representative hand, Omar, she's the first woman Smalley American Muslim to wear his jab the religious headcovering in congress. So it's a record year for women women of color. You're a woman of color. What was it like to see that? I love seeing these women bring their heritage with them to the government. You know, we need to recognize that there are differences among us. Those differences don't have to be obstacles between us. They can be moments for celebration.

"Orange. You're looking ahead to twenty nine thousand nine tonight. But with two thousand eighteen over we can now look at what is the stupidest thing Donald Trump said in two thousand eighteen and so long list, but one candidate's marched to twenty eighteen we're Trump said trade wars are good and easy to win. Okay. And so you know, that statement is now we're living with that right now in November of two thousand eighteen zero American soybeans were sold in China. None. We'll see the final total for December might also be none for American farmers in the heartland key parts of this country. They spent years building up those soybean bark. It's though right now, my home state of Indiana, the price for soybeans is lower than the cost of farmers planting them, so they're losing money on every soybean, they planted, and that's gonna really hurt. It's pinching farmers out there. It's pitching farmers in the heartland. And it's the consequence of the trade war. Donald Trump started any promised it would be easy to win Jared Bernstein. I think maybe you're you might have. The same experience. I do which is that I've never seen a federal elected official at any level of come into office with an understanding a full and working understanding of international trade when I was working in the Senate finance committee with jurisdiction over international trade. I watched that learning curve in in a lot of senators you watch it in new presidents because new presence frequently the one I was working with a governor of Arkansas had no experience in this. And for most people it's actually a pretty quick learning curve because people like you sit them down and take them through it. We have not seen Donald Trump. Learn anything about this object in two years of the presidency. Donald Trump's not gonna learn anything about anything from anyone. I think that's that's pretty much baked in the cake. And unfortunately, he has some advisers who understand this either. And I think the apple cases really interesting in. This regard Lawrence. The problem is that globalization what I would have tried to explain to someone in that position is that globalization at this point is an omelet that can't be unscrambled unscrambled when it comes to these trade flows. That doesn't mean that it's all good. It has downsides. And we have to do a lot to help the workers who've been hurt by Trump doesn't do that. What you can't do is punish the trade flows themselves because at the end of the day, you're going to end up hurting American companies American stock markets, investors and workers themselves and you end up trying to pick winners and losers within your own economy. Which is something that all Republicans have always believed government is really terrible at and government has proven. It's pretty terrible that we're going to end it there.

Americas heartland issues referendum on Trump

"Today. We're bringing you a story from America's heartland the midwestern state of Kansas US voters will head to the polls tomorrow for the highly anticipated midterm elections. And there are a number of battleground races to watch one of them being Kansas third congressional district. What's happening? There is happening in a lot of places across the US many traditional Republicans. Suburban voters are rejecting politicians who've align themselves with President Trump, and in some cases, the rallying behind non traditional candidates as a sort of referendum on the president's policies. The F T Jennifer Siegel spoke with data journalists Brooke FOX who's been covering this race. Br grew up in Kansas near the district and last month. She went back to talk to voters. So Brooke tell me about Kansas City for someone who's never been there. What do they need to know about this district? So the city sits on the border of Kansas and Missouri. The third congressional district in Kansas City is mostly made up of the suburbs of the city. It's pretty well known in the area as being more affluent district, although it does include more urban less affluent areas as well, but on the whole UC higher levels of income higher levels of education than you would see in other districts in the state a lot of people that currently live in Kansas City, generally have family roots somewhere in farming. And a lot of them have moved to the city as a result of job opportunity there that is in more the professional in management industry versus in the agriculture industry, and give us a sense of the political landscape there. What is voter registration look like in this district. It's pretty close to being split down the middle. Slightly more majority to Republican side. This district is not Representative of the rest of the state because the rest of the state represents more rural districts. This district is Representative of what you find it other suburban districts around the country, so areas close to big cities. I think off hand counted maybe five or six suburban districts where you're seeing a democratic challenger outpolling, a Republican incumbent, and that's that is happening across the country, not necessarily just in Kansas. Right. And we seem to be seeing a trend where Republicans who have historically been in safer seats are facing competitive challengers on the left, but let's talk about the key race in this district. It's four seat in the house of representatives told me about the candidates, so Kevin Yoder. This is his fifth time running to be a congressman for this district. And he is pretty well known for being a budget guy. He's fairly moderate compared with other Republicans, and he is facing. A very strong challenge from a woman named cherise David's she's lesbian. She's a native American woman, and she's also a former professional MMA fighter. So she sort of a surprising candidate she's never run for office before, but she did work as a fellow in the White House in the department of transportation. So she does have some political experience in her background. So you talked to quite a few voters in this district. One of them was a man named Steve rose, and he's pretty frustrated with Kevin Yoder, the incumbent tell me a little bit more about Steve. And what he told you Steve rose is a columnist in the Kansas City area who has voted for Kevin every time he's run in the past. But this year, he's frustrated because he thinks that the congressman is voting too closely aligned with Donald Trump's policies, and that that's not reflective of what the district wants. And here we used to be. It's no longer Maher is now Trump junior more he's inset with Trump the more. He's also with is this for Steve rose told me that there's nothing that Kevin Yoder has really done to merit a frustrated public that what they're frustrated with his Donald Trump and the more closely. He is viewed as being aligned with him is where he he's going to run into trouble. So voters there seemed to be issuing a sort of referendum on the president. I put the referendum question to several people in the district. And they all emphatically said, yes, this is a referendum on the president and this idea of a referendum. What's the driving force behind it? I did talk to quite a few people who are moderate Republicans themselves. And a lot of them are switching party lines to vote for the democrat. They just like to see someone stand up to Donald Trump, essentially don't think that Donald Trump necessary. Appeals to a lot of these more centrist voters in the suburban districts.
