News Brief: Presidential Debate, EPA Changes Clean Water Rules

"Now we know what it looks and sounds like when all the Democratic presidential contenders share the same stage that's right the ten leading leading candidates met in Houston Texas Joe Biden who's been leading in the polls stood near the centre. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders stood to either side. Now it'd be hard to say that anybody decisively one debate so many months before actual voting but this event did seem to highlight genuine differences among Democrats including those three the at center stage. What were the differences well? NPR POLITICAL REPORTER ASTHMA Hollywood is in Houston Good Morning Aspe- and our senior political editor and correspondent Dominica Montinaro was watching Ching to Dominica Good morning to you and let's start with you Dominica. What did you see is? Those candidates spoke well. I mean you know the big thing here is that this was the strongest debate eight at least to start for Joe. Biden was crisper than he's been. He seemed ready to go on the attack but he also got some help early on and that's a big part of why is able to do better from amy cloche are the senator from Minnesota. She really decided to Kinda hug the moderate lane and seemed to put a floor under Biden in didn't wind up turning turning into a pylon like it has an other debates pylon Joe Biden and instead there was this division in the Democratic Party was several candidates on either side and asthma something in close to I I think close to half an hour of disagreements on a single big issue healthcare that's right and we've seen other healthcare debates in the first chew debates but what I think is unique about this. One is at the focus of the healthcare conversation for much of this campaign cycle has been concentrated on the progressive left specifically around around Bernie Sanders Medicare for all plan last night. Biden was much more aggressive in defending his ideas around healthcare and I want you to take a listen to specific bite of what he had to say. I think I know that the senator says she's for Bernie Yeah. I'm for Barack. I think the obamacare worked. I think the way we added to it replace everything that's been cut at a public option guarantee that everyone will be able to have affordable assurance. I guess we should clarify. Senator says she's for Bernie. He's he's referring to Elizabeth. Elizabeth Warren yes exactly and you know the Biden. Campaign sees this argument as a clear strength for him in war and world and people sort of laugh at the idea that health insurance people like their health insurance company. They'll say people like their doctor. They like their nurse and Massachusetts. Senator doesn't really want to take the bait in specifically wind Biden is pushing around this idea of taxes and costs which is something we saw last night. They feel like that's an intellectually dishonest honest argument about whether or not taxes on the middle class will go up the thing that really you ought to look at total cost but I would say look a lot of voters aren't going to get that distinction between between costs and and taxes kind of lost in the details what they're essentially acknowledging your taxes would go up aren't they but they're saying your other cost your other healthcare costs would go down in many cases so we've got Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren favouring Medicare for all but as Dominica mentioned Joe Biden was not the only person saying wait but let's do something a little more a little more moderate here and Dominica just mentioned actually specifically Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar who defended many times this idea of healthcare Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has made a point of saying he wrote the Damn Bill around Medicare for all so he knows that people are mischaracterizing it well. Here's what Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar had to say about that while Bernie wrote the bill I read the bill and on page eight age eight of the bill. It says that we will no longer have private insurance as we know it. I don't think that's a bold idea. I think it's it's a bad idea and this idea of eliminating choice is something we also heard from south. Bend Indiana me or Buddha judge who tied his idea his plan called a medicare for all who want it and basically he says that you should trust the American voters to do what they want to have the sense to choose what they opt for okay so quite substantive debate bait there. Maybe not a lot that was new but people could sit there and look at the differences between the candidates. Now we mentioned that there were ten Democrats on stage but sometimes it seemed seemed almost like there were eleven. Let's listen I WANNA give credit I to Barack Obama for really bringing us this far. We we all know huge debt to President Obama who fundamentally transformed healthcare in America and of course we owe a debt of gratitude to President Barack Obama Dominica at sounds like President Obama had a pretty good bay. It's quite a difference from what we've heard in past debates when they've been pretty critical of Obama's tenure as not progressive aggressive enough of those newly warm feelings tell me they recognize Biden still in the lead and just how important older black voters who've been really supporting Biden are to who wins this nomination. I mean President Obama is still very popular within the Democratic Party and a lot of voters who we've talked to on the campaign trail sorta chafed at this idea that there were sort of dismissing him especially with President trump in the White House. They're saying well. How far do they want to go? we kind of liked to what President Obama had to do. I guess we should be explicit about this of course Joe Biden. Having Been Barack Obama's vice president naturally associated with Obama's record Glenn he's wrapped himself in President Obama and everyone else has sort of seeded the lane which was kind of jaw dropping to be totally honest. There was also a difference last night on gun laws Beto total rourke Democrat of Texas noted early on that his city. I'll pass oh just suffered a mass shooting just weeks ago and he was pretty definite about assault style rifles hell yes. We're GONNA take your fifteen. Ak47 what does he want to do. And how does that. Compare to the other candidates on stage so he's proposing a mandatory gun buyback program Stephen you heard that line was so enthusiastically received in the debate hall all but that that just shows you. It's really popular maybe with the activist base of the Democratic Party. Most of the candidates do agree on some sort of version of voluntary gun buyback back program but our work is going further with this mandatory idea. I think what's really interesting. Is that when you look at the broader electorate mandatory Tori gun buybacks are really controversial recent. NPR PBS Newshour Mayor's poll found that forty six percent of Americans are against Congress passing such legislation Asian forty five percent are in favour and really the divide splits along partisan lines Dominica one of the question for you. We've talked about the five or six leading candidates. It's did anybody a little bit further down in the polls standout. All you know you look at over work. I mean he certainly was in full remote reboot mode of his candidacy and all these other candidates are starting to feel the heat and they were really trying some hail Marys yet Andrew Yang with this competition to give out a thousand dollars to to ten different people. Amy Klobuchar went for broke in the moderate Lane it who Leon Castro forcefully going after Joe Biden at several turns so you had a lot out of these candidates realizing that votes are going to be cast shortly and had to take some risks last night the Medico s Mahala. Thanks so much you're welcome. That's that's. NPR's here's dominicos Montinaro and NPR's Esfahan. The trump administration is changing what qualifies is as the waters of the United States the head of the Environmental Protection Agency signed off on the repeal of an Obama era era regulation for many years federal law has aimed to limit pollution in lakes and rivers the administration of President Obama extended that rule in ways that would regulate pollution on wetlands and smaller waterways they were to be regulated in part because they flow into the bigger waterways. EPA Administrator a straighter Andrew Wheeler argued that rolling back that rule would reassure farmers and home builders and landowners NPR's brought is covering this story for us and he's on the line naked morning hey steve what regulation exactly so what scrapping regulation that was finalized in the waning days of the Obama Administration called the waters of the the US rule or for short okay because you know as well as I do Steve Every federal policies only as strong as its acronym. That's not on August acronym. I got but anyway go basically with the waters United States did was tried to define which rivers streams wetlands and lakes should deserve protection under the Clean Water Act the clean water act itself largely limits pollution in big navigable waterways. That's the term in the actual statute but court decisions including a ruling from the Supreme Court left the door or open for protections to expand off of those bigger waterways so like you said not just the river but the stream that feeds into it or the wetland next to it and Obama wanted to basically officially officially extend federal water protections to that larger connected water system with this regulation. I guess we should just underline the basic problem. Here is gravity. You want to protect the rivers. The Big rivers offers you WANNA protect the big lakes but essentially all land I mean everything flows downhill into something and so how do you how far you extend that protection inland. Why did the trump trump administration consider Obama's approach to be a power grab? Well you know this change was not terribly popular with a number of groups farmers developers minors they saw all this is they did many Obama environmental regulations as a federal land grab in an overreach of what the Clean Water Act was actually intended to do and look the rules certainly expanded federal water protections to new waterways but was I think was as is the case with a lot of these policies one way or the other There's a lot of rhetoric where the on the ground impact is a a little harder to discern part of that be in this rule is because it was immediately challenged in court by some of the groups that we just mentioned and the trump administration was clear from let's start that this rule was one of its top environmental targets so in some ways it was kind of a dead rule walking. Oh so we never really found out how much landowners and other other people might have been affected had this rule been fully implemented. No it was only implemented in two thousand fifteen and and and was challenged by a number of states so do we have any sense now of how landowners and other people will be affected now that the rule is conclusively debt again say you know those groups are groups are thrilled ruled by this decision. EPA Chief Andrew Wheeler announced repeal to applause at the National Association of Manufacturers Headquarters yesterday but this rule like many many of the trump administration's regulatory rollbacks is going to be challenged in court so at the end of the day the impact is probably going to be discerned by court decision very very briefly as my drinking water is supposed to be affected by this again hard to say you know in the media the federal water protections are GonNa Revert back to where they were in nineteen

Trump Administration Weakens Climate Plan To Help Coal Plants Stay Open

"Trump administration's rolling back of some Obama era efforts at targeting coal fired power plants and their pollution, which contributes to the climate changing the Environmental Protection Agency chief Andrew Wheeler says it's a sign that quote fossil fuels will continue to be an important part of the mix in the US energy supply. Of course, there's been a lot of coal plant closings. In fact, it's been reaching record numbers in the last couple of years, owing to competition folks in the industry say, from sheep or natural gas and renewable energy and some of the utility companies are closing down their old coal coal coal-fired plants on their own not because they even have to rip because they've become inefficient, and it's cheaper to use natural gas which comes right here from the. United States of America. So no foreign. No foreign influence there for the most part with the natural gas. So that's what's happening out there in the world, but it's a different situation in Washington, where there's a lot of talk about this this morning. So we thought we'd like to hear what you think about this. You think this is this can bring back the coal industry after a couple of years of the Trump administration. There are fewer coal miners now than there were on inauguration day. This is an attempt to bring back jobs in the coal industry, and to keep the fossil fuel industry alive. And there, you know, there are jobs, a lot of jobs involved with that not so much in the coal industry, but in fossil fuels, in general, so we'd like to know what you think about this. I'm not sure how much of an impact actually will have in the long run, because, as I mentioned, states, are moving on their own to enact all kinds of regulations on fossil, fuel emissions, and the utility companies themselves are cleaning up their act. Even even going beyond with the federal government has been mandating. Because it makes sense for them economically to do so, but as always the human factor, what about the jobs that get displaced there are, of course, new jobs in renewable energy, but it's easy to say, well, you know, move from one job to the other, it's a little harder when you're actually the one whose job has disappeared. So call us at eight hundred seven three six three six six six and while you're doing that we're going to find out some of the details on what happened yesterday from correspondent Bill. We're before leading the EPA Andrew Wheeler was a coal lobbyist. The contrast between our approach and the green new deal or plans like it couldn't be clearer rather than Washington telling Americans, what type of energy, they can use, or how they can travel, even what they can eat. We are working cooperatively with the states to provide an affordable. Dependable in diverse supply of energy in reality American coal consumption. Is that a forty year low that because a regulation, but competition for the first time ever more powers now being generated by? Cleaner, cheaper renewables. A free market trend President Obama tried to accelerate with a tough carbon cap called the clean power plan. But after several groups, sued, a conservative supreme court majority kept those rules from taking affect and today, the EPA killed them. Instead, they will give states three years to come up with their own pollution standards are air and water are the cleanest, they've ever been by far. In fact, the American lung association says the air has gotten measurably worse in the last two years, and four in ten Americans are now breathing unhealthy air at according to a New York Times analysis. This is just one of eighty three rules being rolled back and everything from toxic chemicals to endangered species to the climate crisis. So scientists can't help but worry. That's correspondent Bill. We are on the action taken yesterday and some of the reaction to it. We are now at twenty minutes before the hour on first light our number is eight hundred seven three six three six six. Six doesn't take a lot of your own energy to punch those numbers onto your phone and give us a call this morning and tell us I area action to that. So giving it back to the states. Is that such a bad idea giving it to the states who have most direct responsibility to their citizens, and perhaps the most responsive to what their citizens in each state wants and with the ability now apparently to conform more to whatever the local conditions are whatever they local air conditions there. Although air does not recognize state borders and boundaries. It goes wherever it wants to go. So, you know, it's a, but it is turning, it back over to the states is not necessarily mandating what they have to do. Some states will probably go farther. Some states may just leave it alone. And of course, the world is changing on its own away from from fossil fuels, and that's the long term sweep. Of history that we can see coming. But the question is, how do we make a transition and keep everybody employed as much as possible and take care of the air as well. Eight hundred seven three six three six six six we'll be back with your calls in two

"America's coal industry, Environmental Protection Agency, chief Andrew Wheeler signed the measure yesterday in front of an audience of coal miners and legislators, we can't deny the fact, the fossil fuels will continue to be a key part of the energy mix, both at home and abroad, uses rising worldwide, the new measure sets no emissions targets. Instead, it's designed to let market forces guide the US towards cleaner energy, energy. Scientists say the world must rapidly cut back on missions to defuse the existential threat from climate change environmental groups in the state of New York have promised to challenge the administration in court over this, I'm joined now by Joseph Goffman. He worked at the EPA in the Obama administration helped craft the clean power plan. Thanks so much for being. With us. Thank you for having me. Thank you. And your colleagues reporting this story is the director of the Andrew Wheeler, right to fossil fuel still occupy necessary place in America's energy landscape. They occupy place within within a large diverse inflexible electric grid. They can be or should be and some to a large extent are being paired with much cleaner energy sources. So what, what is your response to this decision, you had to have seen this coming? Yes, I think we did see it coming. I think they're multiple responses. I this is pretty devastating in terms of its impact on climate change policy. Because what the did yesterday was really two things, I it removed from the books clean power plan, which had been one of the most, if not de most serious, comprehensive national. Policy to deal with greenhouse gas, emissions that lead to dangerous dangerous climate change and replace that policy replaced. What was really intended to be a long-term foundation with a policy that, that is designed to do nothing in two designed almost two point two future policymakers that they can do nothing. The administration says that this is about the, the market taking the lead, but the market has already moved away from Colin towards alternative enter energy solutions to, to a pretty significant degree in which case is this really is this move really gonna make much difference in practice. Well, it's again a two point answer ironically, despite the rhetoric or contrary to the rhetoric this, this rule would actually interfere with market forces, because it would compel states and utilities to go back and. Visit the citizens they've ordered made about whether or not put additional money into coal-fired power plants as opposed to continuing to invest in clean energy. The market is delivering a lot of good news here, but the market is not policy. What the clean power plan did in BPA should be doing now is looking at the innovation and the progress that yes, already reading to lower missions and building upon that progress just go ahead just briefly seconds remaining. Do you think this is something that will be addressed at the state level? Stay to are being more ambitious about implementing their own versions of the clean power plan. Some state some states are doing it, but what you want if you want to deal with climate change is a uniform national policy that slats level playing field. Give all gives all states at targets, and let's figure out how to reach those we'll have to leave it there. Just Goffman, executive director of the environmental and energy law program at Harvard. Thank you. Thank you. The US Olympic Committee has a board meeting today in Chicago, and it's going to need to answer some tough questions. The organization has faced a lot of criticism over how it is dealt with sexual abuse scandals. Alexandra Starr, has that story this week members of congress arrived in Colorado Springs home to the US Olympic Committee there. They demanded changes. Democratic congresswoman Diana get heads the committee, that oversees the USOC when the very body that congress created to care for athletes becomes more concerned about winning and protecting. Brand than the athletes themselves. It is time for change more than three decades ago. Congress created the USOC and gave it a monopoly over the Olympic trademark that has been interpreted to mean everything from the phrase go for the gold to the five rings in two thousand sixteen the USOC took an almost three hundred fifty million dollars mostly from marketing fees, and broadcast rights. Nancy Hogshead may car leads champion women and advocacy organization. She says giving the USOC such a marketable property and exercising, little oversight ended up shortchanging athletes, the administrator class has taken all the cookies for itself. They stay in the five star hotels, and are really treated like semi royalty less than a tenth of the USOC is revenues go directly athletes. Hugs had made car says the organization has a lot of leverage over. Spiring olympians. They have to be obedient and subservient in order to make the team, swimmer BJ Bedford, who wanna gold medal at the Sydney games in two thousand says the fact that the Olympics, hold such alert can make young people vulnerable to predators within sport. The Olympics was starts with a dream. There's nothing I wouldn't have done and not puts athletes at risk because if someone says, do this and I'll get you to the Olympics. It's really hard to say no, that's a reference to the sexual abuse scandals that have roiled Olympic sports. The most notorious case was former gymnastics team, Dr Larry Nassar who molested more than five hundred girls and women under the guise of medical treatment judge. Rosemarie Aquilina, who presided over Nassar's trial, supports shaking up the USOC athletes cannot thrive in a broken system that values money and medals over the safety of athletes. We need to flip the script the proposed legislation would convene a panel to investigate the assoc- it would then make recommendations to reorganize it. This is not the only reform circulating on Capitol Hill, their discussions of creating an inspector general to permanently oversee the US Olympic movement. Hand Xiao is chair of the USOC's athlete advisory council. He's.

"Expects new coal fired power plants to open as a result of a major new regulatory change Environmental Protection Agency, chief Andrew Wheeler says, he expects that increase in coal plants has resulted the repeal of the Obama era clean power plan for seventeen is somewhat surprising new poll from USC Dorn Saif today painting, a picture of a Democratic Party that appears willing to back pragmatism over pope, progressivism, the poll asked Democrats nationwide several questions, but the most interesting answer came to this question, regardless of whom you support for president in twenty twenty who do you think has the best chance of winning and the answer was a white politically moderate, middle aged male? I talked with USC political science professor, Bob shrum prefer. A man by seventy two thirty. They prefer a white American by sixty eight to ten for a teen axe. Nineteen for an African American three for an Asian American. I don't think this indicates any kind of prejudice. I think what it indicates is that people were traumatized by Trump's victory and twenty sixteen. They're terrified about beating him and determined to be in twenty twenty and they're fundamentally playing it safe. They're saying let's find somebody that we think can be Trump, that's reflected in our other finding which is when we asked people, which candidate was most likely to be Trump. Joe Biden was eighty six percent thought he could definitely or probably beat Trump only three percent thought definitely not no one else came. Came close to that a Bernie Sanders was at sixty definitely or probably, but only seventeen percent definitely. But he had forty percent of people who doubted that he would be Trump. Everybody else's below that. So that's why Biden in my view is leading and all these polls right now, also the composition of the party is quite interesting. When you ask people how they identify themselves. You have twenty seven percent of democratic primary voters saying they're moderate, conservative forty percent saying they're liberal or progressive, and only ten percent saying their democratic socialist. Let me ask you this question. You say that, that it's not biased. But I'm wondering if in fact, the people who support women or candidates of color might actually be saying that a white middle aged, moderate male is more likely to win because of their assumptions about other voters bias. Yes, I think that's true that we asked that. The question regardless of who you support yourself. But one of the things that's interesting is while you have greater support for a minority candidate among minority groups you have greater support for a woman candidate among women. It's also true that overall among those those groups. A plurality prefer a white male candidate with government experience. But as Bob shrum, and I were having that conversation cable news on the internet were on fire with criticism from Senator Cory Booker, and others over front runner, Joe Biden's examples of how opposing sides can work together because Biden had mentioned to segregationists, senators that he had decades ago, been able to reach consensus with Booker for one is calling for an apology from Biden. Well, coming up at four fifty three, we'll hear more from USC professor Bob shrum on why this poll indicates that Biden will likely ride out the storm for twenty now news ninety three point one.

"It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin. When an artists finds their song climbing up the billboard charts, it usually costs for celebration in the case of the robber lil- knows ex and his viral hit old town road. It's also been a cause of controversy. Blends genres and its debut on three different billboard charts illustrated that very fact, but then billboard decided to just remove the song from the hot country songs chart a lot of critics did not like that decision. One bit. They say it's proof that the music industry doesn't afford black artists. The same creative license as white artists. And Sam Sanders is the host of the news and culture podcast. It's been a minute. And he is with us to talk about this Sam. Hey, isn't that the catch? Yeah. I found myself to sit in grooving before we get into the whole controversy. We have to understand where this came from. Right. Explain. Yes. So old town road is a tick tock phenomenon and tick tock is social media app that let you make these really highly edited videos of yourself usually lip synching dancing, the popular songs, and that's how the song blew up. I all right. How does it even get there? So low MAs x first released old town road independently on YouTube and soundcloud, and I tunes back in December. But it broke out because a lot of young mostly white kids who like country began to make videos of themselves set to this song onto tuck wanna blew up on tock it blew up on streaming and then radio begins to play it. And then all of a sudden country radio has a country hit on its hands by a black rapper. And that was a big deal. I mean, what was the big deal about that? People were mad about it. There's this blah called saving country MU. Music and this writer there Kyle the triggerman coronial he called old town road nothing more than internet memes. And he said it's not qualified as a country song. It's just a rap song with the trap beam. And he wasn't on the felt that way because after making an appearance on the billboard country chart for a week where it hit number nineteen billboard pulled old town road from that chart. They said the song has references to country and cowboy imagery, but it does not quote embrace enough elements of today's country music. So I guess that gets to how we define any kind of musical genre. I mean, I guess to a certain degree billboard has a point the song is a rap song. Right. Oh, yeah. The song is definitely a rap song. But who decides what is or isn't country music? Very subjective. And lots of folks are saying, hey billboard. Hey country, you allow white artists to get on these charts with songs that aren't quite country. All the time. There are artists like Sam hunt who was. Clearly, influenced by hip, hop artists. Like Taylor swift who make country songs that were more pop than country over. Yeah. Yeah. But all those artists Rachel, they're white. So what is the say about the state of country music? So I talked with Shane Morris. He worked in Nashville for years doing digital artist development. And he says part of the pushback against Naza and this song. It wasn't just race. It was also the industry being afraid of how this guy emerged on social media without going through the Nashville gatekeepers. Hip hop is totally cool with new artists come out of nowhere country, still not so much like a sound cloud for independent country. The fans don't adopt music at the same way, very much are given what they're supposed to like. And then that's that. And so the question is can country music catch up with hip hop in everyone else in make peace with this. Brave. New world Sanders is the host of it's been a minute. Sam thanks as always.

One percent I'm, Charlie pelletan that is a Bloomberg business, flash all right Charlie thank you with midterm elections in the US coming in November and a new president in Mexico Mexico taking office in December the two countries are, nearing a deal on new rules for cars sold. Under NAFTA one. Of the major sticking points and, talks to. Revise the trade agreement speaking at a US S. chamber of commerce event this week commerce secretary Wilbur Ross discuss the progress or media close. To completion negotiations are with NAFTA particularly with Mexico we're very. Pleased that, the new. President in Mexico, wasted no, time at, all in pulling is new trade team sir McGregor is Bloomberg news economic policy team leader. She joins us now for more on this story from our Bloomberg ninety nine one studios, in, Washington DC so Sarah how would. The US and Mexico settle the their. Differences over, cars so that's the big question right now what what is in this deal you know. We're hearing that. That the US Mexico are getting. Closer to, some, sort of agreement on autos and there are so many contentious issues in these NAFTA talks but without. A doubt autos is. Probably going to be the hardest one for them to agree on so it is. Significant that if they are getting closer to some to some sort of idea of what they'd Want that basically the lion's share of the US trade deficit with Mexico is cars and we. All know by now that the, trade deficit is really big car parts right and car parts and we know that the trade, deficit, is. Trump's the, thorn in Trump's side when when he talks. About trade so it's really at the. Cracks of redoing this deal so it really can't be overstated how important it would be if Mexico and the, US can can find an, agreement on that but. The big question is where is candidate seems like the US and Mexico are sort of in the boardroom. Right now, at the negotiating table and Canada's in the waiting room and can? They even make deal over cars without. Involving Canada Mexico is the biggest? Source of, car imports to the US Canada's right behind it at number two so how how this practically, would happen it's not clear right now but it would be. Significant if there's some, progress so tell us what the sticking points have been in this area of. Automobiles and auto parts so the US at one point you know had said they want a significantly larger portion Parts of a car percentage of a car to be built from North American made. Parts so they wanted something, like seventy five percent from the current agreement was sixty two point five percent Mexico wanted a little bit lower lower than that and I think also. The US really wanted to make sure that these these parts? That basically the value of the car was coming from higher wage work Trump's biggest one of his. Biggest concerns has been US jobs going. To lower costs Mexico in, the automotive sector in the manufacturing sector and I. Think the US wanted to try and guarantee that higher wage labor was going to be an. Aspect of this agreement put into, writing now so that those jobs could be in America Do you have any idea why the Trump administration has shut Canada out of this out of these talks and are the Mexicans on board with keeping the Canadians out at this point Well I think big turning point was the election of the new president in Mexico to lie I Trump himself has said he's spoken with Anglo since he was elected. And it really seems like there's a priority right now in Mexico as well to get a deal before. This new president in this new administration in Mexico takes over on December first so I think that was a little bit of a more of a willing partner with Mexico right now and, also the US has been pretty vocal. About the fact that Canada has, sort of tried to tried to go a little bit around them to influence lawmakers in the US industry groups and and the US doesn't like that it, wants to negotiate with Canada and it thinks it's, sort of, a little bit of a, sneaky way that candidates taken. To try. And get its voice across by, talking to these congress people who are then trying to go to Trump you know complaining about. NAFTA and saying make a deal with Canada that's great and so I think you know there's there's kind of been a little bit of tension there between the Trump administration will pay Back there So what's next So you know still candidates says, and even, Mexico you know this is. A trilateral deal we want to try and keep this NAFTA as. A trilateral agreement so one element of this is that some people are thinking about is that the Trump administration would wanna get Mexico onboard with a. Deal over autos like I said earlier is a really tough a tough. Nut to crack and once he has Mexico on, board with it hoping to, draw in Canada, then, in say look we've we've agreed between the US and Mexico over one of the hardest, issues are, you you know put.
