"Than a half million homes and businesses already White House. Press secretary Sarah Sanders has Paul manafort's guilty pleas today have nothing to do with President Trump or his twenty sixteen campaign. The president's former campaign chief pleaded guilty to conspiracy against the US and conspiracy to obstruct Justice. Well, who is likely to blink first the trade war between the US and China Washington Post reporter, David Lynch joining us on the KOMO Newsline. David you're writing today that China might be able to withstand a trade war far longer than the White House thinks why is that the case? Well, the the president has been saying lately that because the Chinese stock market is off quite sharply this year the Chinese economy that used to be slowing a bit. But that's evidence that the US is winning in the trade war or may have leverage to secure a better deal at the bargaining table. And when you drill down into some of the specifics, it's not clear that that's really the case. The administration certainly is playing hardball. That's been sort of the approach here on many of these things has that strategy worked in the past and conflicts like these. Well, it's it's hard to say there isn't much evidence of success. So far, President Trump is really completely overall US trade policy. So we didn't really got about a year and a half worth of evidence and trade negotiations in general take a long time. So it's certainly possible that whether in the NAFTA talks with Canada, and Mexico, which are still continuing or in talks with the European Union or in talks that have yet to resume with China certainly possible that the president could secure some wins there. But there have been a big achievement for David Lynch with the Washington Post joining us now, I'll negotiation stand right now are there. Some talk scheduled another been some discussion that perhaps the secretary of the treasury might get involved, right? The the US has the administration has reached out to China again and invited them to return to the table. We've had a couple of around to talks. Thus far the results have been a little bit disappointing that the Chinese have complained repeatedly that they're not quite sure what would get the president to say. Yes. What would be enough, and they also are a little confused as to who they should talk to whether it's the Treasury Secretary Mnuchin who again is the one who is extended to most recent invitation, but who doesn't have the portfolio for trade that blogs to Bob lighthizer, the US trade Representative. So that's left the Chinese a little bit puzzled over who to cut the deal with. And they're aware that within the administration. There's a division between officials like Mr. lighthizer and Peter Navarro's, a key White House adviser who favor of a real tough approach to the Chinese and more market financial market oriented folks, like secretary of treasury. Who are a little more concerned about the potential damage to markets to American multinationals do a lot of business China. You can read more online at Washington Post dot com with that piece by David Lynch. Our KOMO news time twelve forty eight directly wanna go right to the KOMO news line now and the Tacoma school district's Dan voelpel joining us now live with some very good news in Tacoma and share with our listeners because school's going to start Monday. Yes, we've been waiting and finally heard that about ninety nine percent of the members of the Tacoma Education Association ratified the agreement today. So we will be definitely starting school on Monday. Dan, I was going to ask real quickly. Are you able to provide any details because I know earlier in the week they had rejected your last contract offer as of two days ago. What was it that, you know, finally got deal through here? Our teachers and other certificates staff, which includes nurses and specialists will get a fourteen point four percent overall increase this year. In addition next year, they'll get a three percent increase. We wanted to to work next year's increase in because we needed some predictability for the school district's budget. I wanted to ask you as well, I know you, and I've been speaking a lot over the last couple of weeks, Dan in there, you're concerned about this raise causing deficits for the district unless lawmakers do something to help you out, and that is still very true. A couple of things happened this week that allowed us to get to this point number one. We received a joint letter from eight of our local representatives in Olympia who said that they were committed to working on fixing in the states funding formula. And in addition as part of the settlement today with our teachers the TA the school district and the WEA all committed to working together to go talk to our legislators in Olympia about fixing that funding formula. So we hope that that this entire effort collaboratively will help to come public schools in the future. Probably got about ten seconds.

One northwest Senator calls internment camps for kids complete with barbed wire. Come us. Ryan Harris has more from the US Senator Jeff Merkley, a democrat from Oregon tells MSNBC that money is part of what's known as a reprogramming notification to the appropriations committee.

So we're going from the horrendous policy of ripping children out of their parents arms to a new strategy building internment camps that would be funded through ice FEMA. Director Brock long tells ABC's. Good Morning, America. The ten million does not come from their twenty five billion dollar disaster relief fund instead comes from the agency's administrative funds. Just an attempt to divert away from the life safety. The issues at Florence. It's a non issue spokesperson for the house appropriations subcommittee that oversees homeland security which includes both FEMA, and I says that they get dozens and sometimes hundreds of these reprogramming requests each month.
