"Your story says that the administration is looking for new talks at big changes looking for big changes in economic Chinese economic policy. What sort of changes does the Trump administration wanna to see? Fundamentally they want Beijing to stop its pressure on US companies to transfer technology with Chinese partners. That's the number one complaint. But then. Things to eliminate or least to curb quite a bit subsidy for Chinese state on terms. To change regulations. So that phone company speaker, you have company find kiss advantage in Chinese market to China into buying more US grades who goes on and on. But those are the basics the president has been holding out threats of potential tariffs against China. Let's let's look at the other side on this water. China's concerns over their trade relationship with the US. Well, first of all China like every other country hates the attack. So they want to Cavs today suspended and then removed number one because the economy. And what they want aside from that isn't really well. In terms of what they want out of the US want easier. Out of investments into the US want. By more eye-catching US goods, and then there's a very long ending requests. But more than that. Honestly. I just wanted to go back to where they were. You know, we're not at the pressures of the new Cold War. Whereas it's not detraction peoples in the global economy -bility more than anything is Chinese goal you and your your colleague at the Wall Street Journal Ling Ling way reporting that the talks have been conducted via telephone for several weeks. But that it's unclear whether the discussions will produce any agreement the president, President Trump and Chinese president Xi Jinping are scheduled to have dinner on Saturday night. Outside of any other. Occasion for and announcing agreement. What do you think comes out of that dinner? You know, I have no idea. And I don't think anybody has any idea including the president's top advisers knitting, including the south. You know, what's being done by the negotiators on both sides is to set something up, but Trump is at most unpredictable when in a one on one meeting, so anything anybody can come out of that. That we come along with the glow that we just discussed today could be that they decide no deal whatsoever. Moves along with it. Gas or they come up with a lot of verbiage. That sounds kind of like a deal with the markets. Really amount to much and again, it's just difficult difficult to predict normally in any other administration democratic or Republican by this point. They would have had to deal basically ready to the key leaders to sign have known that ideal was going to be. They would have cut off relations before that. This is one of the many way to which President Trump is different from his predecessors. Well, just before you headed to the g twenty meetings in the president announcing that he's canceling a planned bilateral meeting with Russian President, Vladimir Putin. He will meet with several other world leaders. Angela Merkel of Germany Shinzo of Japan. Is it your expectation that most of the conversation? The president's interested in is on economic issues on trade in particular. Sure. I mean, I think everyone realizes at this point that President Trump has a special affection, especially interesting trade. I think talk about. The US wants Whitney. Talking about free trade agreement turn out to be nothing. But that that's an issue for the two countries. Germany extensions representing in union when it comes to trade issues that'll be big question Mark between the two countries in both Germany and Japan have a common interest in the sense that the president is also threaten many times to impose tariffs on imports. Those with in particular countries, Germany, South Korea, and Japan, and we're not at the point where those tests this perspective cast of been approved by the country's named are really like. Bob Davis is senior editor with the Wall Street Journal. You can read his reporting on this on other issues at wsJcom. He's on Twitter at Bob Davis. One eighty-seven thanks so much for joining us. Thank you. The g twenty meetings. Britain's Sky News is tweeting that Reuters reports a senior British officials saying Prime Minister Theresa may is open to meeting with Saudi Arabia's crown prince Mohammad bin Salman at the g twenty in Argentina the Senate yesterday in a bipartisan vote advanced a resolution that would withdraw US support from Saudi led forces in Yemen State Department spokesman Robert palladino responded with the administration's you on the issue. Absolutely not the secretary spoke on this yesterday newest clear, the time is right for us to end this violence, and so we don't want to give Iran any further caused continue to fund and supply arms. So we are pushing. In supportive of special Representative, please. Further. When would the time? For the for the for congress to act on ending support for the Scotty campaign. We are is there would there ever be a good time in the civilisation's view is for congress to weigh in on this matter, or is this something that you think. The congress should have no business. Absolutely not. We welcome. The views of the congress. This matter procedural, we welcomed the news of the congress on the secretary has made quite clear that for the Iran backed Hootie rebels to be able to establish something akin to what led Lebanon's Hezbollah has done in Lebanon in the Arabian peninsula, would be destabilizing damaging to American interests and to our allies and partners in the region. I get that. But you say you welcome us of congress and get Europe, the miss make clear that the president will we we appreciate the views of congress. Of course, we were. You don't. I mean, the op Ed that the secretary wrote in the Wall Street Journal was published yesterday was extremely harsh. When after the members of the Washington Salal songs, and whatever the experts the foreign policy. Policy experts are not experts, but the the the community at large. So it's pretty clear that you don't call it catalog. It's pretty clear that you don't welcome. Off of a different opinion or opposing views to what have so I just curious how you can get stay with this. Great base that you welcome. This week. We. Secretary has made clear our position on on on on the violence in the humanitarian disaster that has taken place in Yemen. And we just announced additional measures to. Help alleviate some of that situation. And it's actually quite significant. It's worth mentioning one hundred thirty one million in emergency food assistance to the people of Yemen. And that and that is why we support the special Representative. And we think the timing is right. And we are back to Capitol Hill. It's a lame duck session in congress, Flint still plenty of work going on including oversight hearings FEMA administrator Brock long testified today on lessons he and his agency learn from their response to hurricane Maria in the fall of twenty seventeen here's some of his opening comments. I think it's important for me to tell you what a successful response and recovery looks like because it it. It involves a partnership involves a whole community. It's a lot more than just FEMA anybody's expecting that is just FEMA who comes in. And does the response and the recovery they're mistaken? Emergency management like a chair that supported with four legs. One leg is the federal government. The second leg is the state and local governments. The third leg is the private sector and non-governmental organizations in the fourth leg is prepared citizenry this properly insured, and it involves neighbor helping neighbor when all four legs of those chair to that chair present than disaster response and recovery goes pretty well, we've seen that model take place in California, or as as congressman Ross said in Florida, we've seen it take place in a lot of the communities. The common denominator for for the formula of success. That was not was what was present going into Puerto Rico, unfortunately. And now, I'm working every day to make sure that all four of those legs are a part of that chair because of one one leg is missing that chair becomes less stable, and we've got to do everything we can to bolster state and local capability. Private-sector capability and incorporates him into meaningful fashion entire plans. And that's what I'm what I'm dealing and also like talk about the magnitude of the recent disasters in what my staff has been diligently working on and pushing forward tremendous individuals, and they bust their rear ends for Americans every single day, and I'm proud of him. And let's talk about the magnitude of this. We have five hundred and fourteen open disasters across half this globe. From the Mariana Islands. All the way to the Virgin Islands. We've seen six major landfall and hurricanes five in the most historic wildfires. In the last fifteen months that's on top of seventy five declared total disasters last year sixty eight this year, and we've also provided support to one hundred thirteen wildfires. My staff has been busting their rear ends to sell it to help others. The average deployment of my staff is one hundred and thirty six days as they go out to take care of people and try to put people's lives back together. And I think that that should be recognized. I really do this agency is doing everything that he can't push. Forward to help people before during and after disasters. But he goes back to what is a partnership in the whole community the FEMA had Brock long. Dr Lynn, Goldman of the George Washington school of public health were pressed by committee ranking member Elisha Cummings of Maryland on the response to twenty-seven teens hurricane Maria. A lot of this is about you take we take the dollars that we have. And then we use them effectively and efficiently. One of the things is this we're committed here is. Dealing with waste fraud and abuse. And I think you will agree with me that the issue that I raised about the meals somebody did something wrong, and that was a waste of our dollars. But I wanna I wanna come back. I just wanted to make sure you don't get that confused at like an opportunity for question. I've got this information is misinformation on that tribute contract. Fema FEMA paid for fifty thousand dollars worth of meals from that from that from that vendor. And the bottom line is we only we put forward two hundred and twenty five thousand dollars one hundred and fifty six million dollar. Limit was a cap we never we never wasted hundred fifty six million dollars is a matter of fact, we spent two hundred and twenty five thousand dollars if I remember correctly for fifty thousand meals we cancelled the contract because we put redundancy and all of our contracts, there's more than just one food vendor. We have multitude of pre-event contracts that we've expanded. And so there's a lot of misinformation in the in the lead. I have some questions on that that I'll send to you. I want to ask you about some things that really concerned me George Washington University released an independent study this summer. That put the death count and Puerto Rico from hurricane Maria, a two thousand nine hundred seventy five American deaths. This is devastating and raises many questions. That's a Goldman. I'm coming right back to us. But Dr Goldman can you explain how your researchers reach their conclusion briefly? Well, basically, it was the statistical effort that involved looking at deterrents of death over the ten years prior to the storm within that season of the year adjusting for agent sex in the very sharp demographic changes that have been a crane on the island in some total. There were two thousand nine hundred and seventy five more than would have been expected in a year that did not have hurricane..

"Thanks for being here this morning. Good to see you Heidi. Thank you as well. Still ahead here on morning. Joe today is one year since hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico, Governor Ricardo Reseda was marking the anniversary with a special requests for President Trump statehood, the governor joins us next to make that case on morning, Joe. The recovery and all of the efforts we've made in Puerto Rico. It's been an incredible tough situation, but we fought and we are winning that one big. We stead with water Rico, and we are helping them to rebuild stronger and better than ever before. And that's what's happening to thank you. President Trump is at a lot to say about Puerto Rico over the past year, bouncing between criticize the island's infrastructure management and praising his own response to hurricane Maria. And just last week he went even further calling into question the death toll from the storm, which according to George, Washington University study stands at nearly three thousand. We'll speak with Puerto Rico's governor in just a moment. But first, let's bring in the dean of the Milken institute school of public health at George Washington University, Dr Lynn Goldman. She's co, author of the study that ultimately led to the revision of the official death toll for hurricane, Maria, Dr. Goldman, thank you for being with us this morning. I would just wanna read again for audience President Trump's tweet of last week. He wrote when Trump visited the island territory. Last October officials told them in a briefing. Sixteen people had died from Maria. He's quoting the Washington Post there. He goes on to write this long after the hurricane took place over many months. It went to sixty four people then like magic, three thousand people killed. He goes. On they hired GW research to tell them how many people had died in Puerto Rico, how would they not know this? This method was never done with previous hurricanes because other jurisdictions know how many people were killed. Fifty times. Last original number no way writes the president. He also blamed Democrats for the death toll. Let me just get specify a little bit let you answer directly the president's tweet, but the term excess deaths in your study. Two thousand nine hundred seventy five excess deaths. What does that term mean? Exactly what that really means is that compared to a normal year when there had been no hurricane, we would have expected that two thousand nine hundred seventy five people who lost their lives between September of twenty seventeen in February of twenty eighteen wouldn't would not have died and so that we could therefore tribute those debts to hurricane Maria, either directly or indirectly. And so what do you say to the president, questioning that methodology and calling it magic. Well, there's no real magic to it at all. We are able to look at the officially certified deaths that come from the government of Puerto Rico, were able to understand been debt number of people on the island at any given time migration, eight percent of the people in Puerto Rico actually left the island between September twenty seventeen and February twenty eighth. We had to factor that in we can look over past years. The patterns of death by season by year and use mathematical modeling to make sure that we aren't being caught unaware by some kind of random fluctuation. And so it's actually fairly precise science that we can apply to this to be able to come up yesterday, but it's really exactly two thousand nine hundred seventy five. It's it's very close to that within a fairly small margin of error. It's testicle excess. Dr Goldman, if you could. First of all, how long did you study a research study take to put together? That's one question. The second question is, could you please explain to people who are legitimately confused about how this number exploded to the number that you came up with how easy it is to to find people deaths to find cat Cadillac deaths of people who died as a result of being deprived.
