"I'm Scott Simon. And thanks for being with US President Biden's in Cornwall, England, to meet with other leaders of the G seven today that's the U. S. UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan on the agenda today is China and how to respond to its rising power. NPR White House correspondent Franco Ordonez is there in Cornwall and joins us Good morning. Hey, Scott. What? What kind of response? Are the leaders planning? Well, you know, they're talking about a new fund. It's going to be a counterpoint to what's known as the Belt and Road initiative from China. Felton Road is what China has used to help build big projects around the world. And officials from Latin America, for example, have told me that it's politically helpful to them. You know this cash helps them build roads and create some jobs, and that really matters when it comes time for them to be up for re election, But the program has been criticized because the funding tends to come with conditions down the road. And poor environmental and labor standards. White House officials told us that the G seven wants to help fill a gap there. And the World Bank says there's about $40 billion of projects needed in the developing world through 2035, so there's a lot of need. President Biden has talked an awful lot about how he sees the huge strategic challenge of China are European leaders in agreement with him. Well, this has been a point of divergence. There are concerns about China. But we've seen on issues like five G mobile Internet that the United Kingdom was willing to go its own way and, frankly work with Chinese suppliers that the United States refused. I talked about this split with Andrea Kendall Taylor. She advised the Biden transition team before he took office, she says there have been some shifts. For example, Lithuania pulled out of an infrastructure group with China. And the EU has issued sanctions on China. So all of those things signal how the ground is really moving in Europe that there is more consensus about the threat of the challenge that China poses. Franco. What tangible signs are you looking for? To see whether President Biden can persuade His U. S allies to form a more united front. Well, the White House says that buying tomorrow is going to push G seven leaders to take a tougher stand against China's use of forced labor. And as as you've talked about on this show, there are people the wigger ethnic minority who are forced to produce cotton and work in factories that make products that end up in big brands bought in G seven nations. So we'll see whether this becomes part of the joint statement that leaders agreed to during the summit, and we'll see that statement sometime tomorrow and after the wrap up a big meeting in Geneva, right? Yeah, The big event that everyone's watching for next week is the meeting in Geneva with Russian President Vladimir Putin. But before that, he's going to go to Brussels. And he wants to talk about China. There, too, with NATO and European leaders. Biden has really been trying to cast this trip as a chance for democracies like the US and in Europe to show that they're a better model than autocracies and Russia and China and I expect he'll talk more about that in a press conference he's expected to have here. Frank Ordina is traveling with the president in Cornwall. Thanks so much. Thank you Today in four states, several 100,000 people are losing their enhanced unemployment benefits.

Biden officials blame Trump for border crisis

"Hours. President Biden has largely blamed the increasing number of migrants arriving at the southern U. S border on the previous administration. NPR's Franco Ordonez reports that some officials from the Trump administration are now pushing back. The Biden administration says it was handed a crumbling immigration system. They describe steps they've taken to accept unaccompanied minors and then controversial programs that require migrants to remain in Mexico. As quote a moral imperative. But some former leaders like then acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf say the Biden administration is actually dismantling systems that worked. The administration is treating this as though it's a capacity issue. And not in illegal behavior issue. And that's a fundamental difference, Wolf said. Ending those programs sent a message to the region that the border is open. But those programs were also controversial and included reports of

"This is all things considered from NPR News. I'm Ari Shapiro. President. Trump took questions from reporters today for the first time since he lost the presidential election to Joe Biden. Some spoke to troops around the world, one of his Thanksgiving traditions, and then he held forth, making it clear he is still not prepared to concede even as more states certify the results for Biden and Trump's court challenges keep getting thrown out. Joining us now is NPR. White House correspondent Franco Ordonez. Hi, Franco. Why are you What did Trump say about whether and when he'll acknowledge the reality that he lost the election? Well, you know, he made very clear that he doesn't plan to concede. He was asked to times directly whether he would concede if the electoral college formalizes the results of the election, which it will do on December 14th. Here's how he responded. It's gonna be a very hard thing to concede. Because we know there was massive fraud. He spent a lot of the 25 minutes that he talked to reporters really getting into the weeds on the allegations that his lawyers haven't been making about fraud, But we know there has not been massive fraud and that these claims are well frankly basis. And when reporters pointed out that these claims of fraud keep getting thrown out in court. How did he respond? Well, I mean, things got pretty testy, he shut down one reporter who questioned the merits of his claims. Take a listen. Don't talk to me that way. You're just you're just a lightweight. Don't talk to me that don't talkto. I'm the president of the United States Don't ever talk to the president that way. And another reporter asked him whether he would leave the White House on inauguration Day. Even if he does not concede the election. He did make clear that he will do that certainly will. Certainly I will. And you know that. But I think that there will be a lot of things happening between now in the 20th.

I think it's very good. I don't know if it's a hidden vote. I don't know exactly what it is. But with 10 days to go President Trump is trailing in.

First lady Melania Trump was scheduled to campaign for her husband at a rally in Pennsylvania, a crucial state in President Trump's attempt to fend off a challenge by former Vice President Joe Biden. But NPR's Franco Ordonez reports. Mrs. Trump, who like her husband, tested positive weeks ago for Corona virus, says she's now cancelling the appearance in eerie because she has a lingering cough. This would have been Melania Trump's first appearance since contracting the Corona virus and mark her return to the campaign trail after a year's absence. Her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said. The first lady continues to feel better since recovering but has a lingering cough. Christian set out of an abundance of caution. The first lady will not be traveling.

This event will feature periodically muted mikes. 11 States and the Department of Justice or suing Google. NPR's Bobby Allen reports. The DOJ accuses a search engine giant of abusing its power to stifle competition. Justice Department lawyers say Google has used billions of dollars in advertising revenue to lock in deals that secure its dominant position like ensuring that Google is the default search engine on the safari browser on iPhones. Justice officials say Google controls more than 80% of all online searches in the U. S and has created barriers for anyone else to compete. DOJ is Deputy Attorney general Jeffrey Rosen if the government does not enforce the antitrust laws to enable competition We could lose the next wave of innovation. If that happens, Americans may never get to see the next Google. Google says the suit is deeply flawed, saying the only thing the action will accomplish is propping up lower quality search alternatives.

I would probably understand where the president's coming from in terms ofthe, you know, portraying an image off resilience and strength. After he himself has gone through this eye. I would also understand, you know, at the same time that although you want to talk about being strong and moving forward, and we all have to, we cannot keep on, you know. Being locked up in our houses and shut down and I understand that fully but at the same time, we also have to sympathize with the tragedies that have occurred in the palace, including the deaths. Off over 200,000 people and the people that have been impacted by that. Remember that, for every person that has succumbed to the disease, there might be another 50 or 100.
