"He's been saying that they need more aid in New York and that he hopes That leader. Schumer will be able to deliver that for them, which is just another thing that he can add to his worries back home. So let me bring it back to the president and Senate Republicans because he had told GOP lawmakers that he has quote an open door and an open mind to their ideas. But are those just words? Or is the White House committed to bipartisanship when it comes to this nearly $2 trillion coronavirus plan? You know, I don't think they're just words particular when it comes to President Biden, and he really Is committed to bipartisanship. But, uh, this is a very tough bill to force. The Republicans do not want another two trillion package after the theories that they called the bills that they saw the past year and so it is putting Joe Biden in a difficult place. I know that a lot of Republicans think that while the president himself seems to really want to compromise with them, they worry that Democratic lawmakers and even people within the White House who worked for Biden are trying to pull him farther to the left. And so we're starting to see some of this play out more. I do think that we should have more answers soon on whether President Biden is willing Tol cave to certain demands. There's been talk of changing the threshold the income threshold for the stimulus check on Dawson negotiations on other areas, and so if there is a deal, I know that President Biden and his team are hoping it'll still look a lot more like the deal that he had put forward and proposed originally. But I think we have to watch. Wait and see really how these negotiations play out Elena train. She covers the White House and Congress. Her work available and access dot com here in Washington.

"Congressional leaders reaching a $900 billion stimulus compromise and to go in depth on how this whole thing came together. I'm joined now by White House reporter for Axios covering the president and Congress. Elena Train. Elena. Thank you so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us. I know you've been following this whole issue closely. This is something that's been going on for months. Now. What was it that really led to a deal coming together? Well, good morning, right? And thank you for having me on. Really. I mean, I think a ton of the benefit From past coronavirus relief gradually Excuse me. Coronavirus. Relief legislation is expiring at the end of this year, and so they really need To get their act together. I mean, granted. This has been eight months in the making. I've been covering this, um Repeatedly over the past year. This is something that Congress tried to do in July and failed trying to do earlier in the fall and failed on and so, ah, lot of skepticism that they would be able to make this deal that they're expected to vote on today, but it's happening, and I think the big thing here was the election after The election, Democrats dropped their demand to go a bit lower down on their price tag. They previously wanted nothing lower than 2.2 trillion. Of course, the deal that will be voting on today is around 900 billion on. That's because Democrats argue that this is a down payment or a starter package. Um and not You know the final relief. They want much more comprehensive early. But this is a start because there will be a president Joe Biden in office in January so that their case that they're making for it, and a big group of bipartisan lawmakers as well really came together and kind of I got the ball rolling again after the election to create this framework that both sides could agree on. And so I think that's really what gave it the MO mentum toe where we're seeing a vote finally happened in the days just before the holidays, and that leads me right into my next question. Who are the players in Congress who have really been front and center during these negotiations? Well previous book prior to the election. When these were going on, it was really House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin Post election And the majority leader, Mitch McConnell took a much more front and center role, and he's been really leading the Republican side of these negotiations. So Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are kind of the two Big people that we followed, as well as the Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and House Majority on Excuse me, House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy. And so those are the four people who have really been heavily involved in this the White House. Also some involvement. They are the ones who pushed Um to include stimulus checks on the Republican side that they have had some heavy involvement as well. But really Senate leader McConnell and House Speaker Pelosi are the ones who have been The man kind of calling the shots. Yeah, I'm joined by Elena Train White House reporter for Axios covering the President and Congress. We're talking about today's top story. Congressional leaders reaching a $900 billion stimulus compromise. So you mentioned Democrats. They are viewing this as an initial package that They think will lead to another bigger package. Once President Electro Biden is in office Republicans, they have to be happy with this deal. I'm assuming for the most part, because you know, this was not the 2.4 trillion or 2.2 trillion, or even the $1.8 trillion deal that was being floated before the election. This is much closer to what Senate Republicans had offered up Ah, couple of months ago. Yes, That's right. And that's why many Republicans are calling this a win. I know my sources within Mitch McConnell's office are trying to portray this as such, They say that the 900 Million dollar deal eyes very similar to the bill that was put out in July by Mitch McConnell. And there are a lot of similarities. Of course. Democrats argue that the main thing that Republicans had to give up in this negotiation was liability protections for businesses that was previously a red line for Republicans on DIT is a major concession, but Democrats have to concede on more funding for state and local governments, which was their red line in many ways. On, of course, that that price tag number 2.2 trillion. Coming down to 900 billion is a massive, um Decrease from from what they've been pushing in from their bottom line number. But again, they do hope that this is a down payment. That's how they're selling in. The Democrats are trying to be confident in this deal, and I think from their perspective, they don't think it's enough. But they're trying to argue that it does the job for now, and it is what will pass and I think that's the key thing here. Both sides needed to come to the table and compromise and some Big priorities, and that's the deal that we're seeing today. Did it help that This deal is part of obviously a larger overall spending package. And there was a lot of pressure to get these things done because of course, you know, not getting them done could lead to a government shutdown. Yes. Unfortunately, that is the way that Congress operates. They need a deadline that threatens a shutdown of the government toe. Really get things done and again also, I think we always see this play out right before the holidays. I've said it before I'll say it again. I think the holidays are one of the best motivators to get. Politicians and lawmakers on Capitol Hill to finally agree to something because they're all so eager to get out of town and be with their families. And so, um, yes. I mean, it is a bit remarkable. They've had to pass three. Short term. Continuing resolutions just continue to keep the government open. It was supposed to, um, last week was the first time that they had a sign that continuing resolution to avert a shutdown. They find another one on Friday night and then another one last night, Um, just to make sure that the government was funded for and a lot of amount of time. It just shows the pressure of the timeline that they're working within 100%. That is what is helping force them into making a deal. And while we're seeing all these late nights On the health of these leaders. I'm joined by Elena Train White House reporter for Axios covering the president and Congress. There was a bipartisan group that came together like you mentioned after the election that really took the lead on all of this. A bipartisan group of senators. Is that something that you know now that they essentially have a win here, eyes that something that could lead to more working groups like that. In the future to try to get other things done. Definitely I think that, um And I think this is something that The vice president elect Joe Biden and his future administration are going to be pushing. He he called himself. Um, he wants to be a unifier. He wants to unite Republicans and Democrats and have more bipartisanship. Of course, time will tell if he's able to actually do that..

"On W T O P. President elect Joe Biden has spent recent weeks announcing nominees for his Cabinet and other prominent positions. But what happens of Senate Republicans refused to confirm these people or even hold hearings for them. Axios Who's reporting some GOP members are unwilling to commit to confirmation hearings and votes while election challenges from President Trump continue to play out. Axios congressional reporter Elena Train broke the story and joins us a little earlier on Skype to explain what's going on. There's not as much interest as we've seen in the past, and I think it's not that much of a surprise just given How polarizing politics has become in these processes have become in the past several years. I've been on the hill for the past few days and over the past several weeks talking with different senators, particularly those Republicans, who matter about how quickly they want to get this done, and one big thing that is typical when a new president takes office is having these confirmation hearings for their nominees prior to the inauguration, so that once Ah president takes office he can formally Nominate them, get the paperwork in and get them into their roles as quickly as possible. Some Republican senators are saying they don't think that they should hold any of these hearings or even commit to confirm some of these nominees before the inauguration, even if some of the legal challenges that we're seeing the president and his team put forth continue now, of course, A lot of people are saying won't that be over soon? The electoral college votes on Monday, Congress is expected to certify The electoral college votes in January. But not a lot of Republicans are willing to say that this will be over anytime soon. And so I think if that drags out, it could potentially be a problem here. Worst case scenario from the Democratic perspective that Joe Biden is in office January 20th without his team ready to go on day one. That is the worst case scenario. I mean, well, it could even be worse not just day one. But even some days or weeks into his administration. Most people say, you know, that's unlikely. No one wants a president in place that doesn't have Have a team in place to help him tackle the biggest issues that, of course, ah, company a presidency. But that would I'd say is the worst case scenario. Now we'll see if this ends up happening. I think one thing that a lot of senators Republicans included to continue to bring up is that this is not the time to have these battles were in the middle of a pandemic. It is important more than ever to make sure that Joe Biden has his team around him. Who can support him to get these important things done. So I think only time will tell it once we get to join you. But it could be a battle on January 5th. The Georgia Senate run offs take place and that could really change all of this. The Senate majority does hang in the balance. With those two seats of both Democrats winning those races. It will be a 50 50 split in the Senate and Kamila Harris, who will end up being the vice president could make that tie in favor of the Democrats. And so we wouldn't see is much of an issue here. The other problem about the Georgia Senate races is that because they're January stiff, they knew committee chairman and committee Staff will not be announced or put in place until after that timeline, which only leaves just a few days to get some of these hearings rolling before the inauguration on January 20th so short timeline to do a lot of this important work. Axios reporter Elena Train on Skype tonight as President Trump continues his efforts to overturn the 2020 election. More Republicans are adding their names to a lawsuit against four states that President elect Biden won. Today. 106 House Republicans signed a court filing, which encourages the U. S. Supreme Court to hear arguments in the lawsuit filed by Texas is Republican attorney general. The suit seeks to throw out millions upon millions of votes in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. All 50 states have certified their election results. Attorney General Bill Bar has said there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud. About to get underway with Thursday night football and one of our area's largest school district says it will soon go back to distance learning that's all ahead for you tonight. Super.

"A lot is on the line tonight. As the president tries to make up some ground in the swing states. He needs to hang onto, and Joe Biden tries to maintain his polling lead for more on tonight's final presidential debate. Let's go to Nashville and check in with our very own. I already a reporter will Clark to get a sense of what the situation is like on the ground will What have you seen and heard throughout the day today? Ah, well, just within the last few minutes, we've received word from the White House press pool on some information regarding that topic. The hunter Biden investigation, Tony Koblinsky and I'm I'm probably mispronouncing that it's named that we're probably going to get very familiar with over the next few days is a guest of the Trump campaign here at the debate tonight. He came in And spoke with White House press pool for about seven minutes of note. He is meeting with the Senate committee tomorrow to discuss the information he has On the hunter biting case, and he has three phones he says he's going to share with that committee that he brought with him to the debate tonight. So, uh, there seems to be maybe an effort of the president, too. To get inside of Joe Biden heads just by who was in maybe the first couple of rows of the audience was very reminiscent of back in 2016 when the president following the access Hollywood tape controversy brought some of Bill Clinton's accusers to a debate. This certainly has that same kind of feel to it. Have you seen either of the candidates or their families throughout the day today? I went out and I saw Airforce one land here in Nashville earlier this afternoon, and most of the Trump family Wass on board the flight. Jared and Ivanka, most notably, and then kind of surprisingly, Melania Trump was on board. The flight is whether to be her first public appearance after she missed that trip to Pennsylvania, still dealing with some of the residuals. I'm their battle with covert 19. So she is in Nashville presumably will be in the debate home tonight. Uh, we know that the president came through here earlier and did a very brief walk through of the venue. And then went to a closed door round table fundraiser at the downtown Nashville Hotel, Uh, before, presumably taking it easy for a little bit and then making his way out here to the bell my campus. We also learned earlier today that both the president and former vice President Joe Biden have tested negative for covert 19 in advance of tonight's debate. What is the feeling like on the ground among those who were there by the venue? Things are a little bit different, of course, because Of the pandemic. But is there a sense of excitement that that city is holding the final presidential debate for this election? Yeah, I think that Nashville still feels like this is a big deal. I think the people who were Belmont still feel like it's a big deal and that granted, they wish that it was more of an open format. They've hosted debates before, so they know what a AH normal debate It is supposed to feel like crowd wise and without the Kobe restrictions. But they're still going to be in the national spotlight. People for today and tomorrow we'll be talking about Belmonte will be talking about Nashville and depending on what the what the candidates do, or maybe, in some cases don't do tonight. That will make this one of the more memorable debates there are, um you know, you go back and look in the history of these debates. There are are moments that people remember the venue and the time and the place of of things that happened so I think to some extent, this is almost From maybe an academic perspective almost is good for the university as as a basketball team football team, making it to the national title game, getting that kind of exposure because for 90 straight minutes You're going to be reminded that the president and his challenger Are in Nashville, Tennessee, on the campus of Belmont University. Are I have already a reporter on the ground in Nashville at the debate venue. Will Clark who will catch up with you in just a little bit will thank you so much for the time we appreciate it. Already coming up next to check in with Elena Train White House reporter for Axios covering the president and Congress. She recently had a piece in Axios on what the president's debate coaches are telling him in advance of this final presidential debate. So that is next. Right here on the 2020 vote on I Heart.

"Friday, October 2nd. I'm Ryan Gorman with me this evening, Felix Vega and Reggie on the board. We'll get right to our top story. President Trump in first Lady Melania Trump test positive for Covad 19 coming up in a few minutes, we're going to check in with Elena train. She's the White House reporter for Axios. And is about it's plugged in. Is anyone with what's going on there right now, and the events that have unfolded over the past 24 hours. The president is about to make his way to Walter Reed Hospital. Marine One is standing by at the White House right now, the White House is saying that he's being moved there as a precautionary measure. Of course, we'll continue to monitor that storyline as well. Right now. I want to go straight to the hotline and joining us. For some expert analysis of these major developments is Dr Marissa Levin, director of the Center for Leadership and Public Health Practice and professor at the College of Public Health at the University of South Florida. Dr Levine thank you for joining us and let me start with some basics on this Corona virus we're hearing about when people tested positive when they became Symptomatic. What should everyone know and understand about the early stages of this virus. Good evening. It's great to be with you. The most important thing is that there may not be any symptoms and the critical thing is too. Really take full precautions to prevent catching this forest. I think what we're seeing today shows us that this is an easily transmitted virus basically got through the security of the White House. On. That means pretty much. Anybody can catch it if we let our guard down. Can individuals tests negative today but begin to experience symptoms or tests positive within the next few days? Yeah, That's a great question, because It could take a few days three or four before we actually Khun get a positive test after you've been exposed. So if we know you have an exposure say today, often they'll be a waiting period of about 4 to 7 days actually do a test just to be sure. And during that time, the critical thing for folks is you really need to quarantine yourself meaning separate yourself from other people. So you don't spread it, potentially, you have it. It's been the toughest thing about this virus. You can have it and not even know it but still spread it. For those experiencing mild symptoms or even moderate symptoms right now, and it appears that a couple of individuals who are part of this outbreak are feeling those kinds of symptoms. When could they start to subside or in a worst case scenario, get more severe. So generally, What happens is in the first week to 10 Days is the time period where we see either progression or resolution, and people who end up getting hospitalized usually get hospitalized somewhere. Around 10 to 14 days, maybe a little earlier after they've started symptoms, And so that's why we often see when we're seeing those numbers every day. That there's a lag time if the numbers go up. Until we actually see hospitalizations and then You know. Unfortunately, people are dying from this. Unfortunately, most people don't have symptoms and do well but but dying from this is the latest outcome. That takes Anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks. Really? To really show itself in the community, so that's a natural progression for somebody who's going to get worse. But the important thing is, most people do very well. The issue we have is if you're older, if you have underlying health issues You are at risk of complications and even death. And you really have to be careful to make sure you don't pick it up in the first place. And on that no President Trump's advanced age is wait. All concerns that are obviously getting a lot of attention talk a little bit more about how that factors into one's ability to recover. Sure, you know, we know a lot more now about Coke, and we know that age alone is a risk factor for more severe illness and death. One way to think about it is For people in their seventies. Based on everything we've seen, particularly in the United States and developed countries. Off 40 people who get it. On average. One person will die. So the good news is 39 people will recover. They may have some lingering effects or some other side effects that are concerning Um, but that's that's pretty significant and as your age goes up, it's even more likely to happen. Contrast that with people in their twenties, one average Yeah, you need to have about 20,000 young people at the age of 22 c one death on average. That's on average, and we had to that. In addition to age concerns, like high blood pressure, heart disease, asthma, other underlying lung conditions, diabetes Then your risk goes up, regardless of age. So these are important things for everybody in the community to take notice, Because at the end of the day, you kind of have to figure out what our own risk is. And then put in place appropriate protection. I'm joined by Dr Marissa Levin, director of the Center for Leadership in Public Health Practice and professor of the College of Public Health at the University of South Florida. Of course, we're talking about the story today. The president and first lady Melania Trump testing positive For covert 19 President Trump is about to make his way to Walter Reed Hospital. And what we're hearing from the White House is that this is a precautionary measure. The president will undergo some testing. Can you talk a little bit about some of the things that his doctors air likely monitoring him for? Sure, and let me send my wishes, speedy recovery to the end to the first lady and everybody who's picking up covert. Unfortunately, so the critical thing now is To make sure that we're knowing more about the progression. They don't have a lot of Good data that we can get early on. You really just have to monitor people make sure that they're supported fully. They're getting enough fluid there, eating well resting. But most importantly, no if the tide's turned for the worst, because We've heard that the president has gotten in experimental treatments, which shows promise on that could be very helpful, but we also need to know if the tide turns for worsening. When to use went to implement some of the other present therapies that have worked for people who are hospitalized. Mom, We know a lot more now. Our own positions in the Tampa Bay region have learned a lot and we don't see death as readily as when what we saw today in New York, with the first outbreaks Partly because we've learned that there are some things that could really help. That's what will be watching the positions will be watching for and then make decisions in terms of other therapies that could be and probably time. You mentioned the experimental treatment that the president is apparently receiving Regeneron's Polly clonal anti body drug. What can you tell us about that? What do we know about that? So we know a lot about the virus in its structure and how it catches the cells in our body on what's happened here is that this company has produced About to monitor called monoclonal antibodies, which are very specific to Ah play 18 on the surface of the virus called Spike Protein, one that connects to ourselves. And the idea here is that those antibodies will block so that there can't be a connection to the virus, and that then allows the body to go ahead and try to clear the virus. So Again. It's early. It's still experimental. We don't have all the data, but the company's at least saying that there's some positive signs for that. But I think that's obviously why the president being afforded the opportunity to use that. Again. We're learning as we go. We're learning a lot more about this virus, its effects and how to mitigate it. So I think it's important for all your listeners to remember to stay up today and make sure that they know what we know about the virus so that they can Take the appropriate precautions on and at the end of the day. I'll just add that We're approaching Lucy's, and you don't know what that's going to be like, but all the mitigation effects that we've talked about physical distancing basement. Hand hygiene that could really help us as we go into Lucy's that being as healthy as possible going in, regardless of your age, taking care of your underlying condition. Getting vaccinated for flu..

Dr Levine thank you for joining us and let me start with some basics on this Corona virus we're hearing about when people tested positive when they became Symptomatic. What should everyone know and understand about the early stages of this virus. Good evening. It's great to be with you. The most important thing is that there may not be any symptoms and the critical thing is too. Really take full precautions to prevent catching this forest. I think what we're seeing today shows us that this is an easily transmitted virus basically got through the security of the White House. On. That means pretty much. Anybody can catch it if we let our guard down. Can individuals tests negative today but begin to experience symptoms or tests positive within the next few days? Yeah, That's a great question, because It could take a few days three or four before we actually Khun get a positive test after you've been exposed. So if we know you have an exposure say today, often they'll be a waiting period of about 4 to 7 days actually do a test just to be sure. And during that time, the critical thing for folks is you really need to quarantine yourself meaning separate yourself from other people. So you don't spread it, potentially, you have it. It's been the toughest thing about this virus. You can have it and not even know it but still spread it. For those experiencing mild symptoms or even moderate symptoms right now, and it appears that a couple of individuals who are part of this outbreak are feeling those kinds of symptoms. When could they start to subside or in a worst case scenario, get more severe. So generally, What happens is in the first week to 10 Days is the time period where we see either progression or resolution, and people who end up getting hospitalized usually get hospitalized somewhere. Around 10 to 14 days, maybe a little earlier after they've started symptoms, And so that's why we often see when we're seeing those numbers every day. That there's a lag time if the numbers go up. Until we actually see hospitalizations and then You know. Unfortunately, people are dying from this. Unfortunately, most people don't have symptoms and do well but but dying from this is the latest outcome. That takes Anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks. Really? To really show itself in the community, so that's a natural progression for somebody who's going to get worse. But the important thing is, most people do very well. The issue we have is if you're older, if you have underlying health issues You are at risk of complications and even death. And you really have to be careful to make sure you don't pick it up in the first place. And on that no President Trump's advanced age is wait. All concerns that are obviously getting a lot of attention talk a little bit more about how that factors into one's ability to recover. Sure, you know, we know a lot more now about Coke, and we know that age alone is a risk factor for more severe illness and death. One way to think about it is For people in their seventies. Based on everything we've seen, particularly in the United States and developed countries. Off 40 people who get it. On average. One person will die. So the good news is 39 people will recover. They may have some lingering effects or some other side effects that are concerning Um, but that's that's pretty significant and as your age goes up, it's even more likely to happen. Contrast that with people in their twenties, one average Yeah, you need to have about 20,000 young people at the age of 22 c one death on average. That's on average, and we had to that. In addition to age concerns, like high blood pressure, heart disease, asthma, other underlying lung conditions, diabetes Then your risk goes up, regardless of age. So these are important things for everybody in the community to take notice, Because at the end of the day, you kind of have to figure out what our own risk is. And then put in place appropriate protection. I'm joined by Dr Marissa Levin, director of the Center for Leadership in Public Health Practice and professor of the College of Public Health at the University of South Florida. Of course, we're talking about the story today. The president and first lady Melania Trump testing positive For covert 19 President Trump is about to make his way to Walter Reed Hospital. And what we're hearing from the White House is that this is a precautionary measure. The president will undergo some testing. Can you talk a little bit about some of the things that his doctors air likely monitoring him for? Sure, and let me send my wishes, speedy recovery to the end to the first lady and everybody who's picking up covert. Unfortunately, so the critical thing now is To make sure that we're knowing more about the progression. They don't have a lot of Good data that we can get early on. You really just have to monitor people make sure that they're supported fully. They're getting enough fluid there, eating well resting. But most importantly, no if the tide's turned for the worst, because We've heard that the president has gotten in experimental treatments, which shows promise on that could be very helpful, but we also need to know if the tide turns for worsening. When to use went to implement some of the other present therapies that have worked for people who are hospitalized. Mom, We know a lot more now. Our own positions in the Tampa Bay region have learned a lot and we don't see death as readily as when what we saw today in New York, with the first outbreaks Partly because we've learned that there are some things that could really help. That's what will be watching the positions will be watching for and then make decisions in terms of other therapies that could be and probably time. You mentioned the experimental treatment that the president is apparently receiving Regeneron's Polly clonal anti body drug. What can you tell us about that? What do we know about that? So we know a lot about the virus in its structure and how it catches the cells in our body on what's happened here is that this company has produced About to monitor called monoclonal antibodies, which are very specific to Ah play 18 on the surface of the virus called Spike Protein, one that connects to ourselves. And the idea here is that those antibodies will block so that there can't be a connection to the virus, and that then allows the body to go ahead and try to clear the virus. So Again. It's early. It's still experimental. We don't have all the data, but the company's at least saying that there's some positive signs for that. But I think that's obviously why the president being afforded the opportunity to use that. Again. We're learning as we go. We're learning a lot more about this virus, its effects and how to mitigate it. So I think it's important for all your listeners to remember to stay up today and make sure that they know what we know about the virus so that they can Take the appropriate

"It's 11 11 on w T, O P and a huge day, of course in the world of politics as former vice President Joe Biden and President Trump debate tonight for the first time, it could be the most watched political debate ever. Being moderated by Chris Wallace of Fox News and will be held in Cleveland. Joining us live now with a preview Axios White House reporter Elena Train. Thanks for joining us this morning. How do the president and how will the president and the former vice president go at each other tonight to score points? What do they each have to do to Ah, to make the other guy look bad? Well, it's definitely going to be an interesting day, and I think a lot of people, including both the president's campaign and Joe Biden's campaign, see, this is one of the last real inflection points before November. Where 35 days away, and so, like you said they have A lot of ideas of how to make the other guy look worse. So I think that the president's team is looking at a few big themes, including out, baby. Speaking up about the Supreme Court fight, trying to use Judge Amy Cockney Barrett as a vehicle T beat, bite and really into turning off centrist voters. They think that if they can get the president can get Joe Biden to kind of go after any Cockney bearing an attacker in a certain way, a road one of Biden's biggest traits positive traits, which is that he has Great moral character that he is empathetic on DH that he you know, compared to the president is seen as a, you know, stronger from a character point of view. The Biden team plans to really make this about health care, at least the Supreme Court specifically, they tried. You know, it's something that I think Democrats did very well in 2018 during the midterms. Health care was a massive issue that drove about a lot of voters to the polls, and they're going to try to do that again this year in November, so those are some bigger themes that I think we should expect tonight. Elena. What are some of the issues that worry strategists? What are some of the things that are keeping them up a night that they perhaps you don't want to see happen? I think in a lot of ways, it's what they're more worried about is they're giving more time to what they're worried about them. They are what they're hoping will happen. I think for the president overconfidence. It's the main thing that AA lot of strategists and people on his campaign have told me they're concerned about. They're worried that he hasn't prepared enough that he thinks he's going, Tio. Glide into these bait debates and bulldoze over Joe Biden on and it's really something that a lot of his aides have told the president Don't view it that way. He knows what he's doing. He's a veteran politician on DH. Others have mentioned, you know, incumbents tend to not do as well in the first debate. We saw that with Barack Obama going up against Mitt Romney. Andi. So this idea that he isn't preparing enough is probably the main thing for the president on then, if you look at Joe Biden, his gas, I think are the big thing for the Democrats. They worry that he's going to misspeak seemed to lose his train of thought something that the president will call him out there planning to call him out on the debate stage about trying to make Joe Biden seemed like he know isn't with the time that he's too old to take office. And it's something that a lot of voters have also shown concern about another thing with Joe Biden that they're worried about. Is that deference to the moderate or something? We saw him Dio during the primary debates, and many people worry that will feed on advert only ground to the president. If he's Constantly kind of giving up time and listening too much to Chris Wallace, the balconies debate moderator tonight, Elena. Thank you. For that perspective. We appreciated as we get ready for tonight's first of eight. That's actually does the White House reporter Elena Train? Don't forget to begins at nine o'clock tonight will be live, streaming it.

She'll explain here in a moment, but first since they've been so patient, and they're one half of this four man folk quintet or quartet, I should say. From the sixties. Let's goto William first has been very, very patient. I believe William wants to talk about Illinois budgetary woes, William Go ahead. A big Jan. How are you buddy? Still hanging in there, and I hope you're doing the same. I am anyway, right to the point about this tax thing They want to do the unfair taxes. I call it. Seniors like me are living out of income. Now they want to tax pensions and social security. Okay, They want to crucify us and I can't afford it and it's going. It's going bankrupt. A lot of seniors like me just want to put it out there for you. I think it's immoral and probably unconstitutional, though I am not a constitutional scholar. I play one on the radio once in a while. I don't like any progressive income tax. I think we're all in this together. We can all play this pay the same rate. Same rate same percentage when they make a million dollars or $10,000 will all pay the same rate. We all have skin in the game, and that's out of your gross. Not a year net, and it just seems like a far fairway. To arrange your taxes, but that that horse left the barn long ago and was caught on the Dan Ryan Expressway earlier today, and finally, here's Jeff joining us on 312591 18 900. Hi, Jeff. Go ahead. Hey, John. Two aspects of that bull that you might have missed. What is that in the heavily touch Illinois three, which used to be the elephant? Yes. Newman. Yeah. Mike is close. Like Freud points. Yeah. Yeah, there's another same flowing firm on the Northwest side Foreigners Society overnight, Senator Kent Not only is O'Brien up by 22 out of 56 to 34 overcame plaque Robert Martin. Wake up Holy six over Anthony back play with 22% Undecided Northwest side That's full of first responders. We know that so they would, of course, probably want Pat O'Brien is the next state's attorney. Yeah, I get it. I think the guy there's a lot. There's ah, much attractive about Pat O'Brien and Kim Foxx got herself into a sticky wicket will see if she can get out. But I was I was really surprised at these numbers. This is Ogden and Fry Commission again by the Cook County Republican Party, So you know, take it for what it's worth, But still, I sent a paddle Brian a message a few minutes ago saying, Why don't you come on tomorrow? And you can explain this? Why? You think you're surging, at least in one poll and when you invite one candidate for state's attorney On the program. Of course, I also extended the invitation to our current state's attorney, Kim Foxx. We'll see if one or both want to come on the show tomorrow. But thanks for the call Jeff safe, I appreciate it. Elena Treed rights for Axios is the White House reporter. She also covers Congress and elections and she's watching the Supreme Court. Obviously reading from her pieces. We welcome her for a first visit to double the House. Furious. Democrats are considering total war profound changes to two branches of government and even adding stars to the flag. If Republicans jam through a Supreme Court nominee, then lose control the Senate If the efforts gets goingto happen, I'm not saying losing control the Senate, But definitely presidents going to make his nomination this week, and the Senate will vote quickly to confirm so welcome to the program. We appreciate your time. Democrats aren't optimistic it all about blocking the nominee. The nomination are they know they're not. There's really not many ways that they can slow down this process legislatively, but they do have ways of retaliating if they win Senate control and so they're starting to tease out what would happen if they take back the Senate after November 3rd. Elena, Are they throwing these out? You know on social media on the on the weekend shows. To try to prevent the president from doing this either before the election or even during the lame duck session afterwards. Or do you think these might actually come to fruition? I think it's a mixed bag. If you ask which senator and the people who are saying this I think a lot of people are very surprised with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, having hinted in a tweet that everything is on the table, what he wrote on in a statement following McConnell, Senate Majority Leader McConnell's promised to push through a nomination and but really, I think what happened. I talked to a lot of Democrats and Republicans, and I think that the idea of court packing is one that immediately came to people's mind expanding the number of Supreme Court justices to potentially many as 15. Something that has always been more of a fringe idea. Fringe liberal idea in many ways, But now getting some traction from some of, you know, Senate leadership, more Main Street Democrats. And so I think that these are things that Could be realistic are on the table. We heard him say everything is on the table. But I do think others are more skeptical that it's more of just a messaging tactic, Boy, I I must say, you know, FDR famously tried to do a back. I think during his second term if I'm not mistaken Maybe this first term that blew up spectacularly. I mean, it would be a political bloodbath. If the Democrats take the Senate with the White House and continue to hold the house, obviously to go from nine to maybe 11 or even Mohr Supreme Court justices. I mean, you'd see pitchforks and torches I would imagine. But there's no shortage of hypocrisy. Nowadays we're talking to Elena Train. She writes for Axios dot com, which is a terrific a website. Check it out every morning. So let's set that aside. What do they want to change a ce? Far as The veto the 63 vote threshold in the in the Senate and one of the procedural changes do they want to make a lot of changes? We've already heard a lot about the filibuster and doing away with that on DATs something again very controversial. We've seen other leaders on people in the Senate tried to do this in the past. That That's another big, controversial proposal. There's another where they're trying to turn the federal district into a state Washington D C into a state. Of course, that's something that Republicans are very much against given it would give, of course. Two more senators to Democratic senators. If you did that, given how liberal Washington D C is and yes to 60 vote threshold that you know we saw with the Supreme Court that they've changed. What used to have to be 60 vote threshold to 51 a simple majority. They did that for AA. Lot of other things. We're hearing a lot of controversy around that more unlikely. Think on that one. But these are some of the proposals that are just getting talked around. You have. The other thing that I would think we're talking about is actually having term limits on Supreme Court justices. So it's just not a job until they die. Andere Yang, I guess proposed a constitutional amendment limiting injustices tow. What 18 or 20 year terms? Yes, and that's something we've seen. Actually, Ah lot of Republicans. Even President Trump has said that he is interested in term limits not for Supreme Court justice for senators, but term limits for the Supreme Court. I do think a lot of this Again. We're hearing a lot of ideas just being thrown on the table in a way of energizing, I think Um, A lot of Republicans are.

"25 to 30% strongly approve of his presidency. 60% amore don't think he's trustworthy and don't like him, so he's not a Ronald Reagan And then finally, your 13th key challenger charisma. Yeah. Biden, you know a decent guy, but he's no John F. Kennedy. So I don't count the challenger against Trump so adding them all up your prediction for the 2020 election. Take six keys to count out the party holding the White House as a result of the failure to meet the challenges the pandemic and its effect on the economy and social unrest. Trump went from four keys down in 2019. Now the seven keys down. That's one more than necessary to predict the incumbent party defeat. So my final prediction is That Donald Trump will become the first president since Bill Clinton be George H. W. Bush in 1992 tow lose a reelection bid. But there are a couple of things that keep me up at night. I'm sure what's one of them. Just give us one. I'll give you two really voted suppression and Russian intervention. Interesting. Dr. Allan Lichtman, history professor at American University, has correctly predicted the winner of each presidential race since Ronald Reagan's reelection victory in 1980 for using his 13 Keys system. I'm sure some people listening right now we're going to hope that you'll be wrong for the first time since 1984, but you have four years I make half the country really mad that really mad at me. After doing this for 40 years, the entire country you've got quite the track record, though, and thank you so much for the time tonight. We really appreciate it. Take care. Good night.

We'll see some work tonight. I'm speaking to the president's character and trying, Tio painted what he condo's for America, particularly the second term. I think that's going to be a much more prominent scene tomorrow night, gazing out what of second term under President Trump will look like on DH for secretary. Pompeii, of course, will be seeking Tio formulations issues. He's giving the address. Take the dress from Jerusalem, where he is currently Israel right now, and so a big focus on that.

We will follow your work axes dot com and check in with you again tomorrow. Elena Train Who's following all of this covering the White House and politics? Thank you for being with us tonight and reminder. Our live coverage tomorrow gets underway. 8 30 Eastern time. 5 30 For those of you on the West Coast Live gavel to gavel coverage. A two of this RNC convention. But first, let's talk about Day one and begin with former congressman Tom Davis, Republican from Northern Virginia. What was your role tone that you took away from tonight's proceedings? I think we've seen these two conventions a tale of two countries for a Democrat. It's all gloom and doom for the Republicans. It's all rosy opportunity. Great years ahead, probably not uncommon people. We all tend to look at life through different lenses. When Obama was White House Democrats had more rosy picture of things and Republicans more sour picture, but I thought they accomplish what they wanted to accomplish that they humanize the president a bit. That's very inspiring speakers the speaker from Cuba, I've talked about America and the promise that it may have some the African Americans talking about. This is a great land of opportunity. Instead of coming up his victims. They had the guy from Parkland I thought was very effective. So you know, the real question is who's watching? Yes, and you can to get the partisans watching their own conventions. Democrats, I think solidified their base at their convention. They didn't get much of a bounce. It will be interesting to see what the viewership here Wass, but I thought it was very effective. I thought they did a very good job in terms of hitting the major points, humanizing the president, a little bit and touching on what was going right with America and the promise of what lies ahead. Former Congressman Jim Moran, You were watching the proceedings tonight. What about the overall tone? Was it a tale of two parties? Tom Davis was referring to no question. It's a tale of two tribes and I don't know, never inclined. The thing never the Twain shall meet astronomer knows better than I do. The most conservative Democrat is more liberal than the most liberal Republican these days, and the chasm just keeps getting wider. And I think these two conventions reflect that fact that we Kind of have to partisan tribes. If you will, and one tribe is optimistic, feels that their candidate should reflect decency, compassion, competence, thie other tribe feels that we're under assault that our cultural values are under assault. If we don't elect their leader, then you know a suburban backyards are going to the big seized by loaders and rioters and socialists on job on the squad. Uh, I saw a lot of fear tonight that was being generated. I think somewhat superficially, but nevertheless, people obviously believe they have something a state that they need. That they need to fear. I didn't see much fear the Democratic during the Democratic convention. I thought the emphasis was upon, you know, getting along, trying to file trying to bridge divides, and and it underscored the decency of the candidates so of different approaches. Two very different people. And unfortunately two very different political parties don't come back to the politics that both of you mentioned in just a moment. But for some of the moments from tonight, including this for the chair of the Democratic the Republican Party, Rana McDaniel, who was from Michigan, here's what she told RNC delegates and those watching at home. If you watch the DNC last week, you probably noticed that Democrats spent a lot of time talking about how much they despise our president. But we heard very little about their actual policies, policies that would have been unthinkable a decade ago policies like banning fossil fuels, eliminating private health insurance. Taxpayer funded health care for people who come here illegally and de funding the police Congressman Jim Moran, your response to the current chair of the Republican National Committee. Well, I'm I'm glad that the chair brought up the issue of policy because there was none of it tonight. I don't expect there's going to be a lot of it over the ensuing three days to come. In fact, the Republican Party announced that there will be no platform for the first time ever. I think I can't imagine a time when a political party has imprisoned had a flat for cost. On the other hand, the Democrats do have Dozens of dozens of pages of policy that probably very few people are going to read, Uh, but the idea that there is no platform just underscores the fact that this is almost cultish. It's not the Republican Party that I'm used to that I depended upon what I was in the Congress to mediate. The sum of the extremism of the Democratic Party. This is, uh, this is built party built around one person, and they don't know what his policy is going to be from one day to the next. So all they do is to say we're going to support President Trump on and by implication, whatever he wants to do is what we want to do. And so it's quite a departure from tradition and personally, I don't find it very comforting..

"Of politics Day one of this Republican national Convention, which included the official renomination of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. It was a split program beginning this morning in Charlotte, North Carolina, with the president making appearance there early this afternoon. And concluded tonight with speeches both live and taped, many from the Mellon Auditorium here in Washington, D. C coming up in just a moment, the perspective of two former members of Congress, both from Northern Virginia, Democrat Jim Moran and Republican Tom Davis, But first Elena Train is joining us from here in Washington. He covers politics and the White House for access dot com and I want to begin with the 10 o'clock hour in the speeches by Senator Tim Scott, Republican of South Carolina. Former South Carolina governor and ambassador to the U. N Nikki Haley the significance of their speech speeches and their messages tonight, so I think it's notable that they were chosen to lead in the second hour. That is the hour that Republicans said would be, you know more prominent speakers to hold into the primetime hour of the network news coverage. I think just to start with Senator Ken Scott, who Wrapped up the entire first day of the convention. He gave a very powerful speech on race and given he's the only black Republican senator. His very poised to seek that he also was the lead behind the police reform bill in the Senate Republicans had put forth following the joint, avoid protest. So a very powerful speech from him and I think that he also shows that The Trump campaign and the administration and Republicans in general, really see him as a future leader of the party. That was a big scene tonight, and we'll see that carry on through the rest of the week at the convention there going be highlighting what they're saying. Our rising stars in the party and Tim Scott is definitely one of those. And then the former U. N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, also very powerful, a powerful sea. She often spoke to race relations. And she said, You know, using a personal story of how she's a brown girl in the world in black and white, and that's how she grew up. Definitely struck. I think an emotional chord with viewers on definitely took a more measured approach. We did see from a lot of the other speakers tonight, including Donald Trump Jr. The president's son on Kimberly Growth Oil Donald Trump Junior's girlfriend, but also what's from Victory Fund. They both lead much more pointed attacks on Joe Biden abiding campaign, But I would say that Former master Haley and Senator Scott really tried to paint a more optimistic future and ah, more measured approach to some of the other seekers that we thought, as you know, in past conventions. Normally, the nominee would come out perhaps Wednesday and Thursday and accepting the party's nomination. We saw the president a number of times today in Charlotte, North Carolina, greeting with about 300, plus delegates there and then in two different video tape presentations tonight from the White House, one with first responders and then later with hostages that he was response. Before releasing, and I just wonder about the optics of all of that. And with the messages from the president and from the Republican Party, Oh, I think having having topped with some campaign officials leading up to this week on people at the White House, they want it to be all about Trump. Of course, the convention is all about President Trump and the nominee, but particularly, especially in contrast last week, they want to hear from the president himself thinking that Americans want to hear from President Trump himself and that's why you saw him tonight. In these tapes, appearances and of course, we'll have a massive speech on Thursday on the White House South line, but I think the optics here really that the president himself is very involved in what's happening at the convention. Some Republicans criticized former Vice President Joe Biden last week for not being a CZ forward in the convention. As much as he could have been, of course, that not You know, sticking with president But that is something that I know that the Trump campaign really wanted to highlight this week in the president's self loving the made for TV moments and the rally type. Speeches like he gave today in North Carolina, and then the more intimate settings at the Cape. The White House's appearances tonight on something that he really wanted to do it well, and he's you know some senators Republican senators Senator Sasse Senator Romney, a number of leading Democrats critical of the president, using the White House tonight and then again on Thursday evening. Yes, It's definitely I say, unprecedented and definitely controversial. The president is not part of the Hatch Act, which prohibits public officials from having making some sort of political performing in front of political capacity. The president isn't part of that. But it's still no question, Aly. The ethics about are questionable. And it is going to be especially his speech on Thursday when he's accepting the nomination and his acceptance speech for that definitely questionable optic There was there a moment this evening that stood out from your standpoint, and there were quite a few moments. I think one thing that I noticed Wass they really tried to paint the president Assan empathize, er, which is not something that we see Ah, lot from Republicans in the Trump campaign. We saw that With his his discussion with the former hostages at the White House. It was also a signal of something I brought it before about him, leveraging the White House and the office of the presidency throughout this week, But we also heard from the different speakers trying to be more pathetic person almost similar to what we saw last week with That painting up Biden's character during the Democratic National Convention. I also think that race relations were a huge part of the discussion tonight from each of these seekers, and we heard from a number of prominent black Americans who were supporting President Trump, including Senator Scott, including the woman, Kimberly, Running in Baltimore for former Rep. Elijah Cousin. Andi. So a big theme of tonight, And it's something that we can expect to consider throughout the rest of the week. And at one moment, with Congressman Jim Jordan, talking about the loss of his nephew and then on the phone with the president and the president, talking to father who is grieving the loss of his son so tragically, yes, that plays into the the emphasize the role of the president and again, Jim Jordan is someone that we normally are typically see. Making more fiery attacks. So are coming out in a much more passionate way. Tonight. He was a bit more subdued and really shared a personal stories about his relationship with President Trump and kind of that more gentle side that we don't often see from these Republican leaders. And finally, tomorrow we're going to hear from first lady Melania Trump in the newly renovated Rose Garden also hear from the secretary of state Mike Pompeo, which is rather unprecedented having the sitting secretary of state speaking A political party convention and from Senator Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky. So tomorrow what are you looking for? Elena Train? No. Tomorrow. Just note.
