S. Korea trade agreement substantially had spending American auto exports it's been a tremendous difference that was a terrible agreement that we renegotiated it and is now a very good agreement for the United States it was not a good agreement for the United States at all today's signing of the US Japan trade agreement in US Japan digital trade agreement bills on these incredible success is to the benefit of both of our nations and I have to say that well we here and because of the fact that we're talking about agriculture ethanol and the farmers of Nebraska and Iowa and all of the different places that wanted it we've we've come to an agreement and it's going to be I guess about getting close to sixteen billion barrels or something like that I sell out that's a lot of say it again sixteen billion gallons a lot that's a lot that's a lot of gallons so I think they so they should like me on an island I think so and also and very importantly we've taken a tremendous amounts of money in the form of terrorists from China China has eaten the cost of those tariffs because they've devalue their currency and they've also pumped a lot of money into their system deflation is we have no inflation if anything it's going below the number so therefore we're entitled to an interest rate cut to help the fed does that his would be like a rocket ship and we're already strongest economy in the world and doing better than just about any economy in the world and a lot of people are asking just to see could but would like to see it interest rate cut a very substantial one and whatever else they want to do but we would be a rocket ship and if you look at from the time I got elected if you go to November ninth the day after the election were up close to sixty percent in the market which is numbers that are pretty much unheard of because it's a fairly short period of time our country is doing really well but we are taking care of our farmers out of the billions and billions of dollars that we've got you know about that so we giving that twelve billion from the year before twelve billion and that's compliments of China thank you very much and sixteen billion of this last year then they will see what happens next year maybe by that time is straight now but the farmers and ranchers were targeted to put it mildly by China and it's nice that they're coming back and by the way China is also coming here on their representatives are coming on Thursday and Friday Bob and so you'll start some negotiations and the relationships very good as to whether or not we make a deal I don't know but this is certainly good possibility but the relationship is is a very good one but we've taken in billions of dollars and of those many many more billions we're giving sixteen billion to our farmers because I asked Sonny Perdue I said Sonny what was the amount of money that last year that the farmers were hurt you said Sir let me get back to you get back to me the number sixteen billion dollars I said that's okay we're gonna take sixteen billion out of the terror of so we're gonna give it to the American farmer and I think they appreciated that it never gets reported by the fake news as I say but never gets reported never I don't know why they don't want to do it and then it should be as you know if we took twelve billion from the year before and it also came from large amounts of terrified terrace and people were actually saying I've read a report today I believe in the Washington times where they talked about the tremendous amount of money that has actually come in from terrorists and it's been a number that we've never even seen before in this country we've had we've had a tremendous amount of money coming in and some of the Republican senators and that's not a bad idea said one we give it because we have a lot of money left over after taking care of our farmers and what we're doing is we're bring it right up to the level that the farmers were targeted by so in theory they should be that should be in some way a level playing field the amazing thing about the former and we have had been with so many they don't even want that right they just want a level playing field they don't even want sixteen billion dollars I think almost anybody else Larry Kudlow one sixteen billion dollars the farmer doesn't want to they want a level playing field they want to play the game the way it should be played and I think we're probably pretty close to doing that too but in the meantime no other president would get sixteen billion dollars and twelve billion dollars for the American farmer rancher that I can tell you so maybe we should great work I don't know right your work it was all of us everybody standing up here frankly under the terms of the agreement today Japan is committed to dramatically increase market access to American food and agricultural exports it's a very dramatic number it's one of the larger trade deals ever signed as a result a hundred and twenty six million Japanese consumers will have greater access to high quality American almonds blueberries corn wine poultry and egg products beef pork we'd and so much more anything else you folks can think of doing the show anything Steve anybody now if they're not that's it all.

"Greg Jarrett. You're listening to Bloomberg markets with Lisa Abramowicz impulse weenie on Bloomberg radio. We are broadcasting live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studios. President Trump is expected to sign an executive order today that will direct the US government prioritize artificial intelligence in its research and development spending. A key question. How will this affect the software industry is this a welcome development. How much money could get funnel joining us now Craig Albright, vice president for legislative strategy with the Software Alliance based in Washington DC lobbying organization for software industries, Craig we really appreciate you being here. I'm just wondering starting with this executive order that President Trump is expected to sign today. What's your sense of exactly how much money it could unleash and how beneficial it could be potentially to the software industry? Lisa. Thanks for the question. Thanks for having me on you know, we'll see the executive order isn't out yet. And and we'll see when it comes out. I think it'll be very welcome in the sense that he misses is trying to prioritize RND in artificial intelligence. I mean step one is getting a mapping of where is the research being done in the government. Are there things that could be scaled or the things to be it can be combined? So it's really welcomed that the administration is going to be putting out something to be able to prioritize artificial intelligence are. So crazy software industry thinks about its policy priorities in two thousand nine hundred nine clearly data privacy, data security, data integrity issues that must be right at the top of the list, certainly for consumers. What is your sense as to how much the software industry writ large favors any type of regulatory oversight of data privacy? Thanks for the question. The separate issue completely supports oversight of data privacy. I mean, most of our companies have called for comprehensive federal privacy legislation for a number of years. I mean, the the reality is the technology moves a lot faster than policy and on this issue in issues across the board. What we do is we push to try to give policy to catch up. There's been an explosion of what we call the data economy. Every industry is relying on data. Businesses of all sizes are relying on data to try to compete, and there's just a a lot of data available and a lot of data services that come along with that. And there's questions about how is this data being used and those are natural questions in terms of our companies we strongly support federal legislation comprehensive federal legislation. We think we need a strong federal standard that can be established and give people confidence and provide long term stability to the market. So these products, so Craig what has been the roadblock to getting these. These policies implemented is simply to social media platforms themselves, the Facebooks of the world pushing back. Well, I think what we've seen is a real crescendo of the of the last several months the continues to build into the where where it is. This time seems to be actually building there's bipartisan support, and we have a group of four senators in the Senate who are who are digging in, you know, it's clearly a priority for a variety of members of congress. So we see some fresh momentum behind this and and being a priority for for this coming year, Craig it's interesting because you're talking about how legislative involvement in the software industry can be a positive. I'm just wondering where you're concerned from your constituencies where they're standpoint in terms of oversight and regulation and trying to crack down on a variety of different practices. I mean, where do you see where do you see that influence coming in? Concerned it our industry has is not strong privacy protections because they're in our industry has is that what laws come out or sometimes really messy and ambiguous and can actually conflict with itself. And so what we're hoping is that in the at the federal level. We can have a process that serious gets a lot of input and can have very strong, clear federal standards, and then we can have one clear federal standard as opposed to letting states experiment, and which may be experimenting with ideas that are sound when they actually execute their. They may not be workable. So our hope is that we can achieve a lot that's workable who benefits from the system being maintained the way it is right now. Well, we think that if we pass federal privacy legislation. It's win win win for everyone. I mean consumers want to understand how the data's being used our companies our businesses they want long-term predictable stability in markets for the services they provide. So there's a real win for companies as well if you can establish these high standards that people are comfortable with and give them confidence in how these services are being used. It's helpful to the government because they have a clear standard, and they can enforce to it. So we we see the possibility of federal privacy legislation as as having positive is it can be done in the right way. So Craig the US trade delegation is back in in China this week and clearly one of the big issues on the table is technology, whether it's data theft or technological espionage. What do you and your software constituents believe will come out if anything out of these trade negotiations in terms of tech? Well remains to be seen. You know? We're we're looking at media reports like like, you are sort of waiting to see if there can be an agreement. I think you know, there's there's different understandings of of how far along they may be. But I think what we would like to see again is is long term stability to the markets and technology is certainly being discussed. But in terms of where the terrorists are being applied. And where some of the rhetoric is coming from. You know, we're we're more observers in this space, and in our hope is that solution and get out of a trade war. Excellent Craig Albright. Thank you so much for the update on policy trends for the software industry. Craig is the vice president legislative strategy BSA the Software Alliance based in Washington DC, Craig thanks so much for joining us. I think the big issue coming out of here is going to be some of these tech issues. And I don't think that we're going to get any meaningful movement at these these trade talks disappointed that's kind of where it's heading. Let's head to our ninety nine. One studios in Washington DC to Nathan Hager for world and national headlines Nathan where talks over border security, Paul will continue this afternoon at congressional negotiators.
