Trump's Senate impeachment trial moves to opening arguments

"Trump committed a massive crime against our Constitution and our people and the worst violation of the presidential oath of office in the history of the United States of America. That is lead impeachment manager Jamie Raskin of Maryland today. He and his fellow House members presented opening arguments in Day two of former President Trump's impeachment trial in the U. S. Senate. Call the former president on insider in chief who reveled in the chaos of his supporters of the capital on January 6th joining us now to talk about the day or NPR congressional reporter Claudia Chrysalis and NPR's senior political editor and correspondent. Domenico Montanaro. Could have you both. Here. Thanks. Thanks. Claudia, you were actually in the Senate chamber today, where the 100 senators as jury members sit silently listening to the House. Impeachment managers make their case describe the mood for us. It was clear much of the time that I was in the chamber that the members were very engaged. For example, they were watching lead manager Jamie Raskin, in his presentation very intently reminded me of the chamber yesterday when Raskin was giving his emotional remarks. About the day he and his family experienced here. During the insurrection. I was seated on the Republican side of the chamber. Republicans were intently watching him and the other managers and that includes those who say they won't be voting to convict Trump like Mike Rounds of South Dakota, Republican member of the Senate. Also, Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell was also watching. Very closely even watch some of these videos of the president's past statements on a television screen on the chamber floor. Many members were taking notes, and this includes those who have voted for the constitutionality of the trial, among them, Ben Sasse of Nebraska had a pile of no cards on his desk. Domenico. The Democrats were making the arguments today. I know you've been watching since the beginning of these proceedings yesterday what stood out to you compared to yesterday's testimony. Well, only later in the day here, have we gotten some of the personal passion and emotion that we had yesterday about the violence on January? 6th? Mostly today, Democrats had been methodically mounting, pretty dispassionate case to show Trump is the reason for why all of this happened. They claim that it's not just isolated to January 6th and tick through numerous things for months and months. That this was months and months in the making that Trump laid the groundwork before the election and drove it home after after that election and was aware of what was being planned. Um, it kind of really makes me wonder how and what the trump lawyers they're going to say in rebuttal, aside from saying that Democrats are being selective and use the word on that they didn't say that he used the word peaceful. In his speech on January 6th. Claudia tell us more about how the Democrats are actually building their case here. Yes, they're focused on showing the timeline of how Trump built a crowd of people who distrusted the election and believed they were following his orders. Jonah Goose, one of the managers of he's, a House member of Colorado. He also talked about this. Let's take a listen. Senators is clearly was not just one speech. Didn't just happen. It was part of a carefully planned months long effort. With very specific instruction. Show up on January 6th. Get your people to fight the certification. So from manager to manager they're building this case each piece building on the next the beginning, middle and end and today mark the beginning of that story. He made a point of connecting directly to their share terror that day, and this was especially apparent is, Domenico noted in the late afternoon when managers have shared dramatic sounds. And footage video footage from the day of the insurrection that the public has not seen before. This was sounds from police scanners of officers pleading for assistance. Pleading for their lives. It's seen as they were being assaulted by the mob. There's video footage from Capitol security cameras showing the mob breaking into the capital and another stunning moment where we see Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, walking outside of the chamber, running into an officer being told they need to clear out quickly and he is running. Behind this officer to escape the mob. Wow well yesterday, Trump's lawyers dismissed the House managers arguments, calling Democrats accusing Democrats of trying to cancel the former president by stifling his freedom of speech. Medical. What did the impeachment managers say about that claim right? Trump's lawyers yesterday said his speech was protected by the First Amendment. But Jamie Raskin, the lead impeachment manager, who we heard from earlier You know, he's a constitutional law professor, And he argued that the quote factual premise and the legal underpinnings of that claim are all wrong, He said. Incitement to violence is not protected speech, and here's how he put it with a familiar phrase. It's more like a case where the town fire chief Who's paid to put out fires sends a mob not to yell fire in a crowded theater, but to actually set the theater on fire. And who then, when the fire alarms go off in the calls, start flooding into the fire department asking for help does nothing but sit back, encourage the mob to continue its rampage and watch the fire spread on TV. Clea and delight. You know,

What to expect in Trump's historic second impeachment trial

"Now Democrats and Republicans are gearing up for another momentous impeachment trial beginning tomorrow, the two sides are hammering out the details of the unprecedented second trial of former President Donald Trump. We're joined now by NPR senior political editor and correspondent Domenico Montanaro. Domenico. We've simply never seen this before. In American history. A president impeached twice the second time after he's left office. However, senators preparing for this occasion Well, you know they're going to be the jury, and we've already seen that 45 Republicans have sided with Senator Rand. Paul, who brought this measure forward that believing that this is unconstitutional for Senate to even bring it forward. Well, we're gonna see tomorrow. Them starting this trial. We know that the house impeachment managers on the democratic side are trying to push a, you know. Shortened case one heavy on video and emotional pleas from you know, recalling the events of January 6th to try to make it, You know, sort of somethingto, you know, almost try the president. Before the public to convince them rather than just the senators. I see. And they will be led by representative Jamie Raskin and again the charges for inciting a riot. Aside from that emotional appeal, I mean the nuts and bolts. How are they gonna make the case? You said the president, a singularly responsible not just based on his rhetoric at the January 6th rally at the lips of the White House when the pro Trump mob then stormed the capital, but also his role in false claims that set the groundwork for this and this false grievance that they had That that the president had a right to say that there was that the election was stolen from him, even though there was no evidence for that, and that that groundswell that was the whole reason why they were there in the first place, and that the president's responsible for that. So his culpability is sort of a substance of the case against him. But there's also this procedural point and as you said Domenico 45, Senate Republicans voted to dismiss the trial before it even began claiming that just from a process standpoint, you can't convict a president who isn't in office anymore. Let's hear Trump ally Lindsey Graham. And the way he put it on face The nation yesterday. If you believe you committed a crime, he can be prosecuted like any other citizen. Impeachment is a political process would never impeached a president. Once they're out of office. I think this is a very bad idea. So Domenico, he says. It's a bad idea. On the other hand, he like all of these members of Congress had very scary experience just last month, so I mean to Republicans think Trump should face any consequences. Then you know, some have called for censure. But on the case of president, you know it's interesting. Lindsey Graham leaves out the case of Ulysses S. Grant, swore secretary in 18 76, who was tried after he resigned and the impeachment managers back then thought that this had settled the case because the Senate had voted back then. Uh, that it was that they did have jurisdiction. Now it was controversial. Back then the trump lawyers who have just put out their 75 page. Brief responding to some of the charges. You cite this case and said that you know, essentially because Belknap wasn't convicted by two thirds and because most of the senators back then Didn't think that they had standing. Almost the senators who voted to acquit him thought that he didn't have standing that. That's enough to say it's unconstitutional, even though the majority of the senators voted to convict him. So it was a controversy back then, and it's still a controversy today. I see some details there of the arguments that the former president's defense team is going to make. How about a few other process things Domenico in the moment that we have left because we need other things to get sorted out like how long the trial is going to take whether both sides can call witnesses where those things stand. We're not sure how long this is going to go on. You know, all signs are that it could be a week or so on. Do you know I really think that what's interesting is going to be how the Trump Team how their lawyers go down this path. They're going to make what looks like a narrow constitutional argument that a former president can't be tried and then impeachments mainly about removal and not disqualification from office because if they go down the path Of the election fraud that that could shake loose some Republicans, and there's only just a glancing mention. Of even the election fraud and the president's rhetoric on one line and one page of the 75 page brief. That's NPR senior political editor and correspondent Domenico Montanaro. Domenico. Thanks You're

House impeachment managers reject calls to dismiss case against Trump after his attorneys label it ‘political theater’

"President Trump's defense team wants the Senate to dismiss the case against their client, saying the impeachment trial that begins tomorrow is unconstitutional since Trump's already out of office. Lawyers lay out their assertions. In a five page brief. In response, House impeachment managers emphatically dismissed the defense's arguments. NPR's Domenico Montanaro reports on how the prosecution plans to proceed this week. We know that the House impeachment managers on the Democratic side are trying to push shortened case one heavy on video and emotional pleas from recalling the events of January 6th. To try to make it almost try the president before the public to convince them rather than just the senator's NPR's Domenico Montanaro. The insurrection staged by pro Trump extremists over a month ago resulted in multiple deaths. Including that of a U. S. Capitol police officer.

"I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm Rachel Martin. This year's presidential election saw the highest voter turnout in 120 years, two thirds of eligible voters cast ballots. Have still means a third did not, which is almost 80 million Americans who didn't participate. NPR partnered with Pepsis and the Middle School of journalism at Northwestern University to survey nonvoters to find out why they didn't show up and vote. NPR's Domenico Montanaro analyzed the results and he's here with us. Good morning, Domenico. Hey, Rachel. What's the reason? Why did people say they didn't participate this year? Well, you know, Look, it is a lot of people, which is why we were curious to do this survey considering the narrative of this being such a record turnout. You're which it woz, you know, Look, a lot of non voters are just outside the system. They don't trust politics. Aren't interested in it. They aren't even registered to vote. They don't like the candidates, and they don't think that their vote makes much of a difference. They're less engaged in their communities less likely to volunteer or be part of civic groups and they trust Even their local leaders and local governments less than people who voted. The bottom line here is that this is a group that's pretty disengaged. Take the presidential election, for example, it was everywhere. Obviously, record setting $7 billion were spent to put it front and center. And yet non voters didn't pay much attention. Just 38% said They followed the news of the campaign at least somewhat closely, compared to 79% of people who voted so clearly, as you've indicated. These are people who aren't engaged in civic life. But tell us a little bit more about who they are. Overall nonvoters tend to be younger than voters. 35% of the non voters in this survey were between the ages of 18 and 34. Non voters are more likely to be Latino make less money. Be less likely to own a home or be married, which, of course, can affect economic power, and they have lower levels of education. What really jumped out, though, is that a quarter of non voters in the survey are Latino compared to voters, Latinos or just 7%. In this poll. So you know, really a lot of them are just sitting it out. Latino non voters are more likely than others to say they don't have an interest in politics and just half of Latinos in this survey were registered to vote far below black and white Americans. About eight and 10 of them are registered. Is there anything that these Americans say would motivate them to vote in the future? You know, there really isn't a lot when we asked that question, the top answer was none or nothing more than a third of non voters said that it's a group really who are tremendously disaffected, Disengage, don't believe politics can make a difference. There were some things that could help like showing the government was cleaned up or making election day and national holiday. You know, the 70% of non voters are actually not registered to vote and thought that maybe being automatically registered to vote could help on Dawn Lee. A quarter of them said that Campaigns had reached out to them at all this year. Latinos in particular, the largest growing group in the U. S, but voter outreach and voter registration efforts were really hampered this year by the pandemic. So when so many people don't participate in the democratic system through through an election. What does that mean for representation in our democracy? Yeah, I mean, like there are there are strong socioeconomic correlations when it comes to who votes and who doesn't and as a society everything we really have to think about. You know the fact that big portions of Latinos, for example, the largest growing group in the country? Outside the political system that's making policy decisions about their communities. And you know that kind of thing only perpetuates the types of policies that keep things the.

"From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles and I'm Mary Louise Kelly in Washington. The presidential contest has narrowed. Vice President Joe Biden is currently ahead with recent winds in the Blue All states of Michigan and Wisconsin. And meanwhile, officials in Pennsylvania so they may may be able to announce a winner tonight, but it is not over yet. President Trump still has a path to reelection. And to talk through that. Let's bring in NPR's election expert Domenico Montanaro hate Domenico Hey, Mary Louise. I want to go to the latest vote counts with you in just a sec. But first, the president spoke this evening he appeared at the White House. He made a lot of false claims. About how voting and vote counting have gone. What did you make of it? You know, you really can't say stunning anymore because this has become all too typical eyes, assault on democracy. And just not what's reflective of what's actually going on in the country Currently, I mean, you have a lot of Workers in the states, Republicans and Democrats who are working putting in long hours who are trying to get an accurate vote count, and that's what everyone in this country should want. It should be done diligently and, frankly, it's what's made the United States You know, a model for democracy and what separates us from corrupt countries around the world on DH for the president of the United States to do thatjust undermines that completely. OK, tell us where things actually stand tonight. We're still watching several key states and they're still counting ballots. What's the latest? They are, and we are watching a cz, the foot count titans in Pennsylvania and in Georgia and in Arizona, by the way, where they continue to count votes, and guess what President Trump His picking up votes there so in Pennsylvania right now. Boy. The margin is super tight. We're talking 63,700 votes now. Another little batch just came in to make it that make it. So you know if Joe Biden Joe Biden's willing winning about 78% of the ballots in Pennsylvania today if he were to continue at that pace, but let's put a little lower but 70% of what's remaining about a quarter million ballots. He would wind up with about 36,000 lead. Ah, when all is said and done, that is mighty close. Ah, and I don't think that we're going to see any kind of a call there this evening on that, Unless things speed up rapidly, Nevada still close. Obviously, we're not seeing much there. Coming in. It's 11,000 vote difference. We're probably not going to find out a lot more until tomorrow. Arizona, though 58,900 votes that has been steadily going in President Trump's direction. Increasingly, the AP has called Arizona but keeping an eye on it. Yeah, so mighty close in a number of states and just tease out what you just said about Arizona because there's some confusion over this. The AP has called Arizona We had NPR follow. The AP is calls and so we have said Joe Biden has won Arizona. Not every news organization is doing that. There's still questions about that state. Right, And you know, we're just gonna watch it, and the AP says they have no reason to pull back their call at this point. But if they do then that would that would bring Joe Biden's total down to 253 making Pennsylvania all the more important because if he were to hold his leads Biden of Arizona and Nevada then he would get 2 to 70 without needing Pennsylvania. But If not, then Pennsylvania's where it comes down to it, But by the way, Georgia we have to watch just 3500 votes now separated so close. I know. I know. I can't keep my eyes off Georgia. And that is really you know, there's a lot of electoral votes there, and I think it really does encompass the demographic shift that we've seen in the country in across the Sunbelt states, Georgia was such a hotly contested place. And Stacey Abrams in 2018 came up just short and put in so much work and effort to get people to go and vote and they've done so again. And, you know, I mean, it really could be. You know, a state where again we see perhaps a recount. On DH. Biden could potentially take a leave there. Oh, already lots to watch for tonight. Sounds like still tomorrow, including both as both candidates trying to get these 270 votes somehow under their belt. That's NPR's Domenico Montanaro. Thank you. Thank you. As we dig Mohr into why Americans voted the way they did. We had to support a Texas this heavily Latino county on the U. S. Mexico border has been reliably democratic for generations. But this year it flipped and went for President Trump As John Burnett reports. What happened there underscores the difficulties Democrats have had with locking down the Latino vote. And turning Texas Blue Zapata County is a hardscrabble land of ranchers, oil field workers and bass fisherman. It's 93% Hispanic and hasn't voted Republican in a presidential race since it went for Warren G. Harding a century ago. Until 2020 Trump once Zapata and did better than expected up and down the winding Rio Grande. While Biden underperformed. He carried the South Texas border counties by only 11 points compared to Hillary Clinton's 44 point spread in 2016. Joe Gutierrez ranches and owns an oil field construction company in town. The Trump supporter inserts a plug of tobacco on his jaw and ruminates on the results. I think people are tryingto wait. The country up as to you know what Democrats don't own is, you know, like Joe Biden said. If you vote for Trump, you're not black. You know, You cannot put people in that situation. We're not owned by nobody. No party armed with poles and conventional wisdom. Analysts counted this region solidly in Biden's bucket..

"If Florida goes blue, it's over": Trump and Biden campaign in Florida

"When Joe Biden traveled to Florida yesterday, he explicitly referred to the electoral map, he said. If Democrats win Florida four days from now, quote it's over. It would be very hard for President Trump to reach the 270 electoral votes that decide the presidency. The president knows this, too, and also campaigned yesterday in Florida, which not coincidentally, he has made his new home state. We are going to win Florida. We are going to win for more years when you use your power. Power of the vote. We literally are going to change the course of this country for generations to come. So that's one state on the electoral map and let's look across NPR's final version of that map, which is out today. NPR senior political editor Domenico Montanaro is with us, Domenico Good Morning. Morning, Steve. So, what do you see on that map? Well, like you say Biden has the advantage when our map shows is that, with states leaning or likely to go in either candidate's direction, Biden now leads with 279 electoral votes. The 125 that to 70 is obviously over the threshold needed, eh, so that if the president is going to win, he's gonna have to win all of the toss up states and one of those states that's leaning in Biden's direction, and it's not completely out of the realm of possibility. He's certainly within striking distance in those competitive states. We made two big changes in this map. We put two important states. In the toss up category, Arizona and Texas. Not all these toss ups are created equal, though we hesitated with Texas because of its history of voting Republican hasn't gone for a Democratic president since 1976 and Trump wanted by nine points in 2016. But look, it's been remarkably close. Early Voting's been through the roof, lots of young voters, lots of Latinos turning out on DH, You know, Biden has been leading consistently in Arizona, also since early March. Polls are within the margin of error there. So to keep that, Ah, competitive. Trump is certainly pulling out a lot of stops, and it looks like you know, Right now it's a toss up because you made the change in Texas and some other changes You see, toss up states that air now leaning blue. You see traditional red states that air now toss up states. That's the way the map is moving. But you mentioned that the president could still win this. Absolutely. I mean, like I said, all the toss up states are pulling within the margin of error. So when you see a state that's within two or three points, one way or another, which is where a lot of those states in the middle are. That's not much of a lead at all. So I understand Democrats being very nervous and the outcome is certainly not clear.

Biden outperforming Trump in all key swing states, polls say

"Competing tonight for eyeballs. The candidates were supposed to have a debate. Instead, they're speaking at two different town hall forums on two different TV networks at the same time. President Trump There's pressure to persuade some voters to his side. That's underscored by a new NPR PBS NewsHour Marist poll out today, showing Biden jumping to a double digit lead nationally. NPR's senior political editor, Domenico Montanaro joins us now. Hey, Domenico Hales. All right, So we have been seeing the president slide in other polls since the first debate since his illness. What did our poll find here is very similar to other national polls. Biden is now up 54 to 43. That's the highest Biden has gotten in our poll since it began tracking the race in February. Trump notably has gotten has not gotten above 44% in any of those poles. And the president is running out of time, frankly, to turn things around. The thing that stands out in this poll is Biden now is actually narrowly winning white voters by a 51 to 47% margin. Trump one white voters by 20 points in 2016. If Biden were to get that high, it would be the highest recorded for any Democrat even since Jimmy Carter and that could indicate a very big blue wave building up and down the ballot. That's you know, big, of course, because Trump is still within striking distance in key swing states and those will decide the electoral college. We don't know how things are going to go over the next couple of weeks, but white voters are somethingto. Watch for Why Biden. Khun do well in those places. But Baba, But can we just remember for a moment? What happened in 2016? I mean, Hillary Clinton was up by what about 10 points at this point in the race? I guess what I'm wondering is how much should we be reading into this lead? Biden has in the polls right now. Sure. Well, you know the phrase out, believe it when I see it. Well, yeah, I see it, but I'll believe it. When it happens, Anything can happen here. And when you talk to Democrats, they're not satisfied with the poles. Many aren't even looking at them. And they want this election not to be close. So they're doing everything they can. To make that happen. You know, Clinton certainly had a significant lead at this point, not quite this wide, but that race tighten significantly in the final couple weeks. We have to remember, so that's something to watch. But they're really a few reason reasons why 2020 is not 2016 1st. There's been far less volatility in the polls. This time around, there are far fewer undecided voters are poll shows. Just 5% of people are persuadable, meaning people undecided or who could say they know they might change their minds? Third parties don't seem to be playing as much of a factor. And, frankly, surveys and are reporting are telling us that Biden is just better liked than Hillary Clinton overall, Huh? Okay, well, I want to

Trump and Democratic rival Joe Biden will participate in separate town halls tonight on different television channels, but at the same time Trump will appear on NBC, which added the program after Biden was already slated to be on ABC. At that time. NBC says the decision was based on fairness and up business considerations. It wanted Trump to appear at the same time, as Biden did on its network last Thursday. Two men were originally scheduled to debate tonight. But after debate, organizers said thie events should be virtual because Trump was being treated for covert 19 Trump refused to participate. A new NPR PBS NewsHour Marist poll shows Democrat Joe Biden, increasing his advantage over President Trump. With less than three weeks to go until Election Day. NPR's Domenico Montanaro has more Biden has now taken a double digit lead over President Trump in the poll 54 to 43%. That's the highest level of support Biden has achieved in the polls since it began tracking the race back in February. Side's advantage is driven by strong support from black voters, whites with a college degree women and people who live in cities and suburbs. Biden's also winning independent voters and now white voters narrowly. That performance of white voters is helping Biden toe leads in key swing states. Biden's margin is more narrow among Latino voters. He leads with them, but not by as much as Hillary Clinton did in 2016. That's something a watch in the final weeks is both campaigns try to get out the vote. Domenico Montanaro.

And he said, lawn order with justice where people are treated fairly, and then Trump continued to say he won't say lawn order and tweeted it even this morning, so it's just doesn't make much sense. Domenico Montanaro. Thanks So much for your time. Welcome. Well, last night was maybe a landmark and American politics will take it up again today, but first fires are burning in California in Napa and Sonoma County. The glass of fire continues its rampage through wine country in Shasta County. The state is calling for backup for the Zog Fire. Alice Wolfe Lee has been reporting for analysis. We know the dog and glass fires are just two of nearly 30 that are burning. Start with dog. What's the latest? Well in the far northern part of the state. The Zog fire has burned more than 50,000 acres and steep, rugged terrain up there is making containment difficulty. Firefighters are continuing to focus on saving homes and other buildings and then the glass fire. It's just 2% contained and it's burned more than 48,000 acres. Firefighters will be putting their energy towards securing that fire line. There is some good news in the glass fire that in Santa Rosa The city of Santa Rosa. Some evacuations were downgraded and one other thing that's been happening during these fires up here is there's more information available in Spanish. Then there has been in past years, I spoke to a Cal fire spokesperson who was able to give interviews in both English and Spanish. And there are Spanish speakers at the evacuation centers and also answering the public information phone lines. And this is incredibly important for the large Spanish speaking community here, and much of them work in places like Harry and David's. You know people who enjoy that product. You know, many of its workers are being hit hard by these fires thousands of people who've had to flee some for the second or third time. What are you hearing from them? Is there a sense Some might not go back. The evacuees I spoke with in Napa County said they had already been evacuated at least once this summer. They've all been evacuated before previous times. I spoke with one man who said evacuation has become a ritual for his family. He said he'd been evacuated four times this year, he said he loves where he lives. But he's thinking seriously about moving his family somewhere else. And I have heard the same thing from many other.

"Let's bring in Domenico Montanaro. He's senior political editor here, Domenico. Thanks so much for being with us. Things got what is the Party tried to put across in these opening moments of Tuesday night. Well, you know, so far, we've seen a lot of diversity, some young elected officials, you know, really sort of across the spectrum and what we're going to see to tonight a little bit now coming up is these presidents who you know, are going to be talking Bill Clinton, former president, former President Jimmy Carter. You know, it's interesting because Bill Clinton is somebody who used to speak for 40 50 minutes at a time at these conventions, and he's getting less than five minutes, maybe a little bit of a testament to some of the baggage he carries with the new light cast on you. No allegations of sexual assault and harassment from his time in public life after the me to movement but also just where the party is headed. You know, so I think it's going to be fascinating to see what they both say. And now we're going to hear from back to back presidents, former President Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton and admire Joe Angio for many years. And most recently, I've worked with them on tackling the demands faced by the more than 53 Million unpaid can give us in our country who are juggling work and family responsibilities and putting their own physical and mental health and well being at risk. Jonah's well, too will the saris and struggles Of being a family can't give from Joe's Tam as a young widower thrust into single parenthood with a demanding job to he and Jill caring for their own parents, and that's on a boat at the end of their lives. He knows caregiving is hard, even on good days. Joanna also know the challenges of caregiving for those who serve in the military and returned with physical and invincible woman's. And we know those caregivers need a leader in the white half Jimmy and, uh, voting for Joe because he recognizes the challenges facing our families and has the heart and the talent to make life better for all Americans. President 1976% most effective support understanding But decades he has been my loyal and dedicated friend. Show has experience charge and bring us together and solve murders is a person with integrity. Judgement was understand someone who is committed to what is best for the American people leader and here's the right person. But his moment in the nation's history he understands that understand dignity, our sessions rates. Chamber, not only vision, their actions, whatever that's what we need in these uncertain times. Nobody realizes that many American lives to save these day. He's a mash and testing and recommended about matters must be on next. Good evening. The president's an election is the world's most important job interview. If he had we hired leader to help us solve problems creates is former President Bill Clinton. Are kids better tomorrows? It's a tall order this year. With the covert 19 outbreak on the path to killing 200,000 people and destroying millions of jobs and small businesses. Out of Donald Trump responded. At first, he said the virus was under control and would soon disappear. When it didn't he was on TV every day bragging on what a great job he was doing. Our scientists waited to give us vital information. When he didn't like the expert advice, he was given an order. Only when covert exploded and even more states that he encouraged people to wear masks. Then many more were dying. When asked about the surgeon death, he shrugged and said it is what it is. We didn't have to be this way. No. Coded hit us much harder than it had to. We have just 4% of the world's population. 25% of the world's covered cases. Unemployment rate is more than twice as high South Korea's 205 times the United Kingdom's more than three times your pants. Donald Trump says We're leading the world. Well, we are the only major industrial economy to have its unemployment rate triples. At a time like this, The Oval Office should be a command center. Instead, it's a storm. Is only chaos. Just one thing never changes his determination to deny responsibility and shift the blame. The buck never stops there. Now you have to decide whether to renew his contract to hurt someone else. If you want a president who defines the job is spending hours a day watching TV zapping people on social media. He's your man. Nine. Distracting and demeaning works great if you're trying to entertain or inflame But in a real crisis, it collapses like a house of cards. Covert just doesn't respond any of that. To beat it. You've got to actually go toe work deal with the facts. Our party is united and offering you a very different choice. Goto work president A down to Earth get the job done Guy, A man with a mission of type responsibility, not shift the blame. Concentrate. Not distract you light, not divide. Our choices. Joe Budden.

"It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. In washington. And I'm David Greene in Culver City, California. Former Texas congressman Beddoe Aurora has joined the ranks of the Democrats running for president in twenty twenty. He made the announcement this morning in a video with his wife sitting beside him and followed up with his first campaign. Stop in Iowa. I am all ears right now. There's no sense in campaigning. If you already know every single answer, if you're not willing to listen to those whom you wish to serve, and that's what about me here along with hopefully a Cup of coffee. So I am joined by NPR lead political editor Domenico Montanaro to talk to us about this high Dominica. Good morning, David. Okay. So an announcement video long full of a lot of policy pronouncements. Would you make of it? Well, it's definitely optimistic. You know? I mean when you look at this democratic field, and you think of it as a a lot of people who are fighters who want to go against President Trump who believed the country needs to go in a different direction auroras doing that too. But in kind of this optimistic way, you saw him sitting there on the couch with his wife holding hands while he looks like he wants to kind of get outside and hold a major rally. He's promising to do that March thirtieth in El Paso, but he spent the night, by the way in Iowa. So no surprise there. That's something something happening that state coming up in a number of months. That's where you go. When you when you're getting ready to run for president. I guess I'm so he's a Texas native. He's from a border district immigration. I mean, something he talks about a lot. And let's listen to some of what he said in the announcer. Video all of us wherever you live can acknowledge that if immigration is a problem. It's the best possible problem for this country to have and we should ensure that they're all lawful paths to work to be with family and to flee persecution. This a winning issue for him. It's fascinating because Republicans have really been using immigration as a wedge issue with Democrats and being able to fire up their base. It's certainly going to be something of a controversial line. That'll catch a lot of Republicans ears. But I guess, but his point is that the country is so attractive to other people that they want to come to the US. Sure, something needs to be figured out what to do with it. But he's trying to paint an optimistic picture of what the country is. And remember this is somebody who during the during that Texas Senate campaign even people like Barack Obama praised him for leaning in on thorny issues. And certainly appears he's ready and willing to do that again on immigration. So that Senate bid. I mean, he came close to beating incumbent Republican Ted Cruz a lot of people said I mean close was almost a victory, but he lost. I mean as a former congressman failed Senate candidate. Now is that a good resume to have if you want to be a successful presidential candidate. But it is odd because you know, the old saying is like what you come close as close as only good in grenades. Horseshoes? Exactly. And you know, the fact is he's going to have to overcome what he's most famous for which is a loss to Ted Cruz. Yes. It was a close campaign. He raised presidential amounts of money. Let's see if he can match the enthusiasm levels that he had during that campaign. The big crowds. Let's see if he can match the kind of money that he raised. Remember Bernie Sanders has already raised something like ten million dollars or more within this first forty eight hours. So let's see if better working come close to some of that. So it's a crowded field to say, the least how many Democrats do we have at this point more than a dozen. You've got fifteen people now in the race. And the big name that we're all still waiting on is Joe. Biden the former vice president it really is a wide ideologically diverse field that is forming. Okay.

He does not want them to know what he's doing to clean air and clean water in the rest in his department of interior end up EPA. He does not want them to know how he is hurting them. So keeps the subject on the wall is a master of diversion. Pelosi spoke as new lawmakers from both parties settled into the capital combat veterans many women people of color and others posed for photos, quite dramatic scenes late in the day. President Trump emerged from the White House. I have never had so much support as I have in the last week. Over my stands for border security for border control.

"Were watching primary results tonight in four states Minnesota Wisconsin Connecticut and Vermont a. Campaign in Minnesota has been rocked in recent days with allegations, of domestic violence against congressman Keith, Ellison, whether he wins or loses the primary for state attorney. General those questions could persist since. He's also a leader in the, Democratic National Committee with more on that another primaries being decided tonight we're joined by NPR lead political editor Domenico Montanaro welcome to the studio hey there there are a lot of, racist to sort through we're going to start in Minnesota and. With those allegations, against Ellison what more, have you learned Well we know here is the son of former? Ellison of a former Ellison girlfriend wrote a Facebook post three days ago saying that he, has seen a video showing Ellison dragging his mother off the. Bed by her feet yelling and cursing at her to get out. Of the house the former girlfriend Karen Monaghan. Has tweeted that everything, her son said. Is true but she's so far declined to release the video because she said it's humiliating and traumatizing Ellison himself is not only, a congressman, but vice chairman. Of the Democratic National Committee he vehemently denies the allegations he confirmed in a statement that he had a, long term relationship with Monaghan but that the video does not. Exist he said because I never behave this way and any characterization otherwise is false what has the DNC. Said so far about these allegations I reached out to the, DNC this afternoon and they got, back, to me and said these allegations recently came to light. And we are reviewing them all. Allegations of domestic abuse are disturbing, and should be taken seriously Now that. Came, after I spoke with the former communications director at the DNC Luis Miranda. Who told me quote the party has no choice but to suspend him at a minimum until, they figure out what's going on frankly it would, be malpractice he said not to we've made it clear we're. Going to take, these accusations seriously at a minimum is what that would say, and he said that we set too high a standard not to take the seriously and look this reflects a lot of what, I've heard from democratic strategists this afternoon who. Said that they think these. Allegations have to be taken seriously but that some in the party have actually, grown a little bit skittish after the. Response to, Senator Al Franken who was let go and some people didn't feel. Within the party that he was treated fairly on the? Republican side of things where are they trying opportunities to make gains right well this has, been a year where we've talked a lot about potential democratic. Gains but tonight we'll set up potentially competitive governor's races in Minnesota And Connecticut Republicans think they have a shot in both of those states and there are. Two, house seats in Minnesota where the Democrats have decided to seek other office rather than face reelection Trump we should, point out one those districts, in two thousand sixteen which has showed that Minnesota is trending Republican overall much. More, so in recent elections. Trump only, lost the, state by two points.
