"Welcome to the brookings cafeteria the podcast about ideas the experts who have them. I'm fred dues. Disparities between black workers and white workers and employment and labor force participation existed long before the krona virus pandemic and the economic recovery following easing of kobe nineteen restrictions. That's been felt unevenly especially for black teens. My guest today discusses her research on this problem. Shares policy ideas for a more equitable economic recovery. Kristen brody is a fellow in the metropolitan policy program at brookings and a professor financial economics on leave at dillard university in new orleans. You can follow the brookings podcast on twitter at policy podcasts. Get information about and links to all our shows including tolerance since the breaking straight podcast. The current events podcast. Kristen welcome to the bookings cafeteria. I'm happy to be here. So one of the areas of research that you've been looking recently is tracking the us unemployment rate by race ethnicity over the past few months. Can you review that data for our listeners. In particular the overall figures for black workers versus white workers. Sure so i've been checking this since the beginning of the pandemic actually but if we look at the last three months so be. Us unemployment rate in may was five point eight percent but if we break it down by race for white people it was five point one percent asian american five point five but tino was much higher at seven point three in black lives the highest nine point one percent for black workers. So we'd go. To june july things get better overall by july so it went out slightly engine to five point nine percent but the down to five point four percent overrun and so we saw these decreases where other races well so for black. It went from nine point. One down to eight point two july for way in may from five point one percent down to four point eight end-july still see the black unemployment rate is by far the highest at eight point two percent in july. Then you also break it down further by gender and also by aids in my understanding. Is that the unemployment rate for black women and younger. Black men and women are higher than all of those averages. Right delauro is interesting. Because end-july the unemployment rates for all of the other groups went down whether slightly or more significantly for everybody except for black teams ages sixteen to nineteen so between june and july. Their unemployment rate went from nine point three percent up to thirteen point three percent so comparing so for the us it went from five point nine to five points where white women age twenty five percent down a four point. Five white men by point to down a four point nine sixteen to nineteen nine eight point two right so those are just some of the comparative rates so it was interesting to see that for black teams. It went up significantly. Even for latino hispanic teens. It went from thirteen point two down to ten point eight. Do want to get to some of your views on the causes and solutions here in a minute. But there's this other data point that we hear a lot about and that you talked about some of your research. And that's the labor force. Participation rate is a different thing than the unemployment rate. Can you explain the listeners. What that is how the different from the unemployment rate. And then what do you see in the data for labor force participation rate again when you break it down by race when you break it down by gender and age those such factors so so the labor force participation rate is the percentage of the working age population that is the civilian non institutional population. It's sixteen or older that is in the labor force. So what does it mean to be on the labor force. It measures how many americans are working or actively seeking work so it's the some of the employee. Population and unemployed workers are unemployed population. Where unemployed means a person who is out of a job but has looked for work within the last four weeks. So if you don't have a job and you've become discouraged. You haven't looked for a job within the last week. Then you don't count in that rate. So while what workers labor force participation rate jumps from sixty.

"Welcome to the brookings cafeteria the podcast about ideas and the experts who have them. I'm fred dues in just ten days in august. Taliban forces seized control all the provincial capitals in afghanistan and kabul it's capital city as american military forces began the final phase of their plan exit from the country after twenty years of presence scenes of chaos at kabul's airport competed with an uncertain com on the capitol streets on the fresh contingent of us troops arrived to safeguard the evacuation of american allied and afghan civilians on this episode of the brookings cafeteria. I speak with a leading expert on the forces in issues that have shaped afghanistan over the last two decades and will continue to do so. Vonda fell bob. Brown is a senior fellow in foreign policy. And the center for security and technology at brookings and also is director of the initiative on non-state armed actors. Her expert insights on what has just happened in afghanistan. Help make sense an incredibly complex situation and offer some ideas of what to expect. Moving forward or conversation took place on monday. August sixteenth just the day after taliban forces entered kabul also in this episode governance studies senior fellow. Molly reynolds explains what's happening in congress in the context of the dramatic and dynamic situation in afghanistan including attention to an increased effort to resettle refugees. From there you can follow the brookings. Podcasts oricon twitter at policy podcasts. To get information about and links to all our shows including dollar incense the brookings trae podcast the current and our vents podcast first step. Here's molly rentals with what's happening in congress. I'm molly ronald senior fellow. In governance studies at the brookings institution when the house and senate departed for their respective august recesses the most pressing issues awaiting them on their return were domestic ones. The senate had cleared. both it's bipartisan. Infrastructure bill and the budget resolution that will serve as a framework for coming budget. Reconciliation bill containing many of democrats major domestic priorities. This fall the house. Meanwhile departed with likely plans to return early from. It's usual summer break to take up. The senate passed budget blueprint as well as voting rights. Much relation named for the late. Representative john lewis. Tensions among groups have relatively more centrists and relatively more progressive house. Democrats over the timing of action on the infrastructure measure the budget resolution and the ultimate reconciliation bill where emerging and indeed continued to confront house democratically that they plan for the coming weeks but this focus on domestic policy which indeed has been the major emphasis at the biden administration in that first eight months. His presidency was interrupted by events in afghanistan. Where the taliban seized control of the country more quickly than public reports had anticipated in advance with the completion of the planned withdrawal. Us troops these current developments come after two decades of congress being quite differential to the president on foreign policy especially in terms of the conduct of the wars in iraq and afghanistan and under the general heading of the global war on terror to authorizations for the use of military force. One passage thousand one. I won't pass. Two thousand two have been used by president of both parties to support a wide range of military operations and congress by and large. It's been keen to let them do so. Even when congress does put pressure on the executive branch should take certain action it can be limited in its ability to guarantee compliance especially in the foreign policy but the president has an advantage both in terms of information over the legislative branch in terms of congress willingness to give him broad latitude take for example the special immigrant visa program which congress created i in two thousand six to provide a pathway to legal permanent estimates for individuals who worked with the us military in iraq and afghanistan. Which has long been beset by lengthy wait times in the application process in two twenty thirteen congress required that the state department complete processing of an application under the program with nine months but according to the migration policy institute the state department has never reliably met that standard and as of july two thousand one. The average processing time was seven hundred and three days. This is just one of countless examples. Requirements put in place by congress for the executive branch the latter either cannot or does not want to meet at unless congress wants to escalate a conflict with the executive branch by for example threatening to defend essential priorities often find itself at a disadvantage another challenge facing congress. Is that while the house and senate are capable of acting quickly when they want to the initial legislative responses to the cove in nineteen pandemic in the spring of twenty twenty demonstrate. This all institutional instincts often 'cause members to default to a regular read them up legislating that occurs of the course of a year for example. When asked earlier this year about legislation to increase the number of available visas for afghan allies the top republican on the house foreign affairs committee. Michael call said that he expected congress would fix that problem annual defense authorization. Bill measure not usually pass until year's end while congress did ultimately accelerate legislation addressing some of the issues related to visas for afghan partners and pass to july because comment is illustrative of how congress can have a tendency to fall back established ways of doing things as members of congress individually and collectively determine how to respond to the consequences of the american withdrawal. One particular members will be worth paying attention to members in both parties. Who are veterans of the wars in iraq and afghanistan or were involved in diplomatic efforts related to conflicts in april for example a group of republican and democratic house members led by seth moulton narok veteran from massachusetts and jason crowe on iraq and afghanistan veteran from colorado created the honoring. Our promises working group to advocate for more aggressive effort to resettle afghan allies in the united states. On the whole the number veterans are being congress is down from earlier eras.

Ask leave us a review and now with the interview mark. Welcome back to the Brookings Cafeteria Fred. HP here is always your last on the program. I'm in February of this year to talk about your report on automation and artificial intelligence and how they are redefining work and now you here to talk about a new report also which AAC Britain and Robert Maximum which is a closer look at what kind of jobs or affected by a specifically so. It's a nice way to start the end of the year with this really interesting thing research that you're doing. Can you first define what artificial intelligence is as opposed to automation. A I is harder to the defined because in some ways it's more emergent it's newer it's changing faster and it's not discreet or tangible or physical like a robot and it's not as predictable and many are Software which is all about computer executing controls these technologies operate differently frequently can use large amounts of data to actually learn more broadly honestly they are simulating what humans can do and what would be called intelligence. That's a huge debate. What about when this becomes actual intelligence but they are mimicking the ability to perceive to predict to problem solve to to reason to learn and planning and then I want to say one thing or work on A? I is a subset of the broader realm home of automation that we looked at and we have defined a for all intents and purposes as machine learning which is perhaps the most discreet most established form of AI and that is the form of Ai that uses huge piles of data to discover patterns within that. So I just wanted to make clear bator. We're doing to make this very big in challenging analytic Olympic issue more manageable by looking at one piece of it so it sounds vital to understanding this research approach this framework that we not think about a I the same way we think about an assembly line robot that puts a rivet into the door there moves it down or some other kind of machine itself that perform some action repetitively. This is a lot more complex than that lot more nuanced and and that's a great point because all of these technologies allergies have been I think unfortunately thrown together into one thing and that's because many of of the analytic efforts around automation in general have actually pulled together all of these things they include robotics typically league include software and they say they include a I think they probably don't fully include a and at any rate the AIP of the story get swamped in much. More established and for now bigger realm of factory robotics products for instance other kinds of robotics and then the huge role of software. So we're trying to pull out. Let's now truly try to the isolate and identify dynamics affecting a alone and that's relatively new. There haven't been that many efforts to do this. There is no accepted single way to do it but we think it's really important that we understand the specific technology Ravin lumpy in with a broad God to Amorphous Bundle of automation. Technologies will mark. What would you say is your your co-authors topline finding about artificial intelligence and its relationship to work? One is that it's distinct building when I was just saying and its distinctive specific way robotics. Oh Botox and our work showed this above all has had huge implications and impacts in the factory world world. I think what most people their first impression or I thought about automation is about factory automation. which is robotics? And they're we've seen the massive impacts on blue collar workers the other huge bundle that we've seen is the story of software including an increasingly big office enterprise computing packages whether it's Microsoft or salesforce. These have had a largely impact on the low and medium skill workers within the office context were maintaining processes in the office or work shows that. Ai has a different footprint. It's not that blue collar footprint. Only though we see a lot of okay I in factory and a lot of it will affect workers in the manufacturing sector but at the same time the the broadest biggest and really newest recognition we make is that these technologies are going to especially affect those those in the upper and upper middle aspects of the white collar labor market as you go. Above the Fiftieth Fiftieth and seventieth percentile of income. You seem more not less automation exposure or involvement. So these sir technologies that are going to be used by white collar workers managers relatively well trained and well educated and well paid people. So there's this bundle there's AI in the factory and then there's this white collar cast a very different profile when reading your report. There's there's a long section on the new methodology that you and your co authors employed to do this analysis and I think that's really at the heart of why this analytical framework is so unique league and it's a different methodological Lens than looking at see factory automation. Can you walk us through. What that methodology is well? I I want to call out our incredible. Edible Tartan around this work Stanford PhD student. Michael Webb who is an acknowledged expert on patenting and develop our pattern based approach here. Now this all comes out of need it is unclear how to get out the occupation patients involved in one way has typically been essentially expert study expert assessment and ultimately subjective views of how particular technologies impact particular workers and that has been helpful to the field but we think the uncertainty certainty goes up. When you look at a Because it's such a young field and we think they're in general problems with subjective assessment and so we've relied on this method that very cleverly elegantly in Michael's development of this matches the in particular Noun Verb Noun Pairings of words in a Patents patents for a technology in batches them and and seeks the currents of the same words in actual federal occupational descriptions so it seeking overlap of words. Words it's the most literal kind of analysis and in that sense very objective about where there seems to be a match between what what a I can do as defined by patents that are looking forward and projecting possible commercial use and occupational L. Distributions which are descriptions of what workers do and we find all kinds of overlaps in those overlaps of the basis of this work. And there's a chart in your report. Page ten that compares some extracted verbs and characteristic nouns artificial intelligence patents. Can you give an example or two from this chart so that listeners can get a a concrete sense of your homing in on what I find endlessly fascinating here. Let's just do a few words. If someone say within recognize image recognize face predict performance detect abnormality determine similarity generate recommendation. So in way we can talk about what a is theoretically but another way to look at it. Which is Michael? Webb's contributions to just look at what it it does as defined by founders of companies and creators of Ip who predicted so these specific capability ability are really good definition of what a I does is. I've ever seen find this list of verbs and nouns fascinating but it also gives us a key to unlocking. What occupation will be affected so an AI? Application or technology. See that generates recommendations. You pair that with an occupation that also has part of its job description to generate recommendations. You could then and say that that job function is to some degree could be affected by AI. Because technology is there on the path so I used that example. Because it's essentially what we do. We follow Amazon Prime Prom to check out a movie that's made by. Maybe the same director Swan we just saw. Aw or net flexes recommendation of a cool related program so those matches point us at work that could be done by. Let's move on then to some more specificity around what that work is and who may be affected and how they may be affected by mark and you I I kind of generally talk about where you see in the economy right now yeah and are sort of maps graphics and hotspots suggests this so i. It's in the factory. That's where these kinds of algorithms are detecting defects in product cycles. All state are controlling processes are identifying problems. They're doing things like that and supplementing the work of people in the factory. But it's also in this white collar workplace often in consumer interaction call response. Automated Services Consumer recommendations on that flex and that whole zone of activity seems to be highly involved in a applications optimization is ation prediction wherever that's happening farther up the corporate occupational distribution. Those are big things that are happening. We see a lot of these matches of verbs and nouns in occupations like marketing sales. Computer programming is an interesting personal finance management medical applications. I think a lot of us have been hearing about New Developments In radiology for awhile. Where a I can can do as good or better job of reading scams so those are the two zones and then this very dramatic curve when you're in that white collar world g more? The worker is paid up to the ninetieth percentile the more they will be involved with with a AI. For better or worse that's important to add when you bring up occupational wages as one way to kind of slice the workforce in terms of how. Ai Might Affect it. What about about some other characteristics of the workforce that you see like educational attainment the kinds of roles that people have within jobs demographics age gender absolutely so educational attainment right off really jumped out and hear? The results of our analysis are almost opposite or early worked on automation In automation broadly writ with that focus on robotics and software that I mentioned you. You see a heavy till to the underrepresented and lower income lower education groups. Think of young people working in their first job at McDonald's you know which begins now heavily moving into using kiosk ordering and other systems or the factory factory were heavily hit. This is different. The highest most affected educational categories. Ba attainment so these is are better educated workers who will be contending with these technologies men much more than women now and that's opposite from earlier. I think this has to do with the role. Men play in. Corporate structures. Men are more senior. They're earning war. They're better educated somewhat and are going to be using these technologies more or more affected by them very different pattern one year. And you know we can get into geography as well so the map of the hot spots. It looked at first glance a lot. Like the manufacturing assuring geography because manufacturing is going to be heavily involved. But then you start noticing. A lot of big. Coastal cities are involved as well as big cities. I think this reflects two things. Software and high tech is going to be heavily affected by non honest product but as a tool for us and then big business centers so on the AI. Map Much looks the same with the mid last in the heartland glowing red but then places like Seattle the bay area look highly exposed. And I think that's because because those places have a lot of high tech manufacturing they have big tech industry and then they have big companies and and clearly the corporate world is going to be suffused with these technologies. You just use the term exposed which I think is a vital concept also for people. I'm trying to understand this analysis. I want to couch it in an old saw in release automation. And that's a robot's going to take my job the literal idea. Yeah that robot is going to replace your job and your task in this report. You're talking about occupational exposure to Ai. Technologies can you talk about what you mean by exposure. The word exposure is important in this whole field and we've continued to use it and it describes places where there is this match of capability. The technology can do that is currently being done by human so in that sense the word points to perhaps a threat the possibility of the work being replaced. I actually prefer the word and used the word more of involvement because I wanNA keep open at this point the possibilities that these these relationships with technology can be positive can be supportive of work. I should say our analysis does not make a normative call of where the relationship of a I with the work in edits identified is either negative or positive whether it's a substitution or a complementarity. So we're trying to be studiously. DOODY ously neutral on that our partner Michael Web is a bit darker and sees more of these relationships is likely negative looking looking at the precedent of factory robotics and enterprise software in the office but strictly speaking our analysis is one of involvement involvement now we think involvement can mean positive or negative impact. But it certainly is going to mean flux change and disruption and I think we can count.

"Most powerful tools is ever been used I feel him very would company that was taken what city the director of Georgia rabbit who also played the imaginary Hitler speaking to John by the way John we've mentioned the great dictator a number of times for people who've not seen or heard of it can you just give us the thirty second summary of why that he's right yes I don't know that could fit and thirty so I'll give you forty five it's a Charlie Chaplin film and it is really about a person who is caught up in in the war yeah I Taylor I believe I mean it's been a couple of years since I've seen it Anneke hepatitis actually wrong it came out in nineteen forty and it's about a Jewish barber and he is a Japanese plane not only the Jewish barber but another central Kerr answer to this story and it's you know a movie that comes out in the middle of the war and is very focused on what is happening in **** Germany and yeah there are you know a lot of things you can take away from the film but the fact is that it is revealing through humor truth about the Holocaust about **** that may be a documentary or newsreel couldn't of done as effectively although I do think Steven with the great dictator and I don't know that maybe you've seen the YouTube clip of Charlie Chaplin like speaking directly to the camera he's got the little skinny mustache like Hitler needs to be this very rousing speech about freedom and democracy and that's the great dictator where he's playing adenoid Hinkle a mock I have kind of a mock up of Adolf Hitler but a movie like that today would feel heavy hand like I don't need a director to tell me you know Hitler bad freedom good but at the time that kind of message I think from Chaplin Steven was was necessary yeah it was I mean if you think about it Hollywood wasn't producing films that directly confronted what was happening to the Jews in **** Germany chaplain took that risk in the more people the more jobs and don't do it you know that this is you know that and and the chaplain of course was a subject that film was the subject of a congressional investigation so that that that there were those in Congress I thought this was a film that was aimed at pushing the United States in the war that they saw this is a piece of propaganda no chaplain use this humor and I think to call attention to what was happening and I think he did it very he did it very well I remember the first time I saw it you know what an impression that it made on me but Chaplin used calmly whether to modern times whether that city lights whether it's the great dictator or miss you Fred due to to address contemporary issues and I think comedy can do that funny thing is a few years later you know Hollywood lean a little bit more into making movies about war war to including the fight against the **** including one of the greatest movies of all time Casablanca which is set in the backdrop of World War two let's keep going on the phone eight five five two three six one a one a Larry is in Oklahoma City Hey Larry what did you think of Jo Jo rabbit how many stars and why hi Josh I give it five stars not absolutely loved it I thought it was one of the as for my favorite film specialist what did you love about it well it things that you're talking about right now is that you bring up things like dark movies like this Schindler's list the pianist things like that and then he had com beings like have you see rest things like that this was more because of the in between you know like maybe else dollars seventeen what it reminded me of was sick the quote at the end by welcome that said that let everything happen the beauty and Kerr and that's that's the beauty in the terror that we're talking about right now and what did you think of the the the the kind of bland between though the or rather that line in terms of how far you can go in talking about **** in the satirical or or humorous way it works for you definitely works from the bay eight gallons goes to different deadline set for different place different people in different places I'm not I certainly understand that but we're we're pretty far removed now from that it will always be a part of our history bell look at how the comedian who dress this Durin after non lab how David Letterman and mandolin now and so most people address you know there's very hard things the Larry I appreciate you calling in thanks very much for talking to us let's keep going on the line in Saint James city Florida Adam is standing by Hey Adam how many stars out of five in one I would give it up five out of five stars I found it to be more than just a satire it's one of my favorite movies I've seen in a few years you know it had a lot of different emotions funny sad a sighting original and I mean coming from no my grandma survived the Holocaust and I don't think that there is anything offensive I think there's people who have never seen a Holocaust movie now open minded to going to see this movie you said your grandma was a Holocaust survivor how if at all did she talk to you about what she what she went through I've heard a lot more second hand I I never really wanted to bring it up with her and I kind of regret it to this day she you know I've heard stories of her on the train and then having to evacuate train because they were bombing all the railroad tracks being fighters of you know no planes flying so low she could either the pilot eight you know she was lucky because she was cute she made it all the way to where they go to the concentration camps and it's because she was a cute girl they made her a a Nate and therefore she was able to escape go to Czechoslovakia and then again more authoritarian leaders took over even ended up in Cuba more authoritarian leaders took over and later and ended up in America well when I appreciate you sharing her story and your review thank you very very much for calling in to talk to us in Ashburn Virginia Russell is standing by Hey Russell what did you think of the movie well I did not see the movie I'm going to see it I really anticipate a wonderful fail but I just wanted to remind people that we have a wonderful ability to use humor in the face of terror in nineteen forty three the song was released called der Fuhrer's face by spike Jones and his orchestra I see Stephen nodding he clearly knows all you're talking about I could you know what no I I don't but you will go ahead I just see Stephen not in because he knows what you're talking about but go ahead may I sitting there and the first first and off the auto service radius by master race week Ohio hi in the field as they age it was then made into a Walt Disney cartoon with Ross can't pass that can we just please have a round of applause for Russell that was that was that is the that is ladies and gentlemen we we keep it classy on NPR and that's how we know I really I I love that Russell I love I go ahead good citizen thought okay and then it was used as the theme of a Walt Disney's cartoon with Donald Duck and the cartoon got an academy award in nineteen forty three so you can watch that and see what it was like how we faced the German terror with human in the film are the cartoon itself actually had newsreel footage of Adolf Hitler giving speeches and giving the Heil salute and so on yeah and the audiences laughed and they laughed at Hitler and they were braver for it Russell I really appreciate the musical rendition and I appreciate you sharing your thoughts thanks very much Tosh I'd love you to respond to what Russell say I feel I I think I hear where you're coming from hunter sent in terms of critique of this movie it's kind of fascinating to me to just see how over time we've dealt with weaving history into drama into comedy what's appropriate what's not appropriate even you know the relationship between Joe Joe and Elsa and what that means in a larger sense well I'm really glad somebody broke after fierce face set to start with I'm familiar with from that song from doctor Demento show he used to play it quite often along with a lot of other spike Jones music as far is the the impulse to explore these things I there've been so many Holocaust movies made and I understand why people are comparing judge a rabbit to the great dictator but it also reminded me a great deal of movies like life is beautiful which also tried to sort of find humor in relationships during the Holocaust and the boy in the striped pajamas or the book thief movies that became very sentimental about children in World War two there are so many ways to explore the whole cars through humor through tragedy through through drama through family stories through individual biographies and I think the running the gamut is kind of an important way to keep that story fresh to keep people coming back to it if if every story about the Holocaust is an extremely heavy drama it's full of full of tragedy and misery people stop watching those movies you know people will stop being able to emotionally engaged over come didn't so repeatedly finding new ways to address something that still looms large over us and should it is is part of what cinema does when you're Roger Ebert famously said that the movies are an empathy machine and I think movies like church a rabbit as as much as I have objections to some aspects of it are still trying to find ways to drive empathy around a story that we've heard of of million times by making into a new kind of story I'm Joshua Johnson you're listening to one a before we go I want to get to a few more quick reviews but let me for so many good comments in there so many interesting things to talk about with the Stephen I mean Kelly how this fits into the context of just awareness of the Holocaust in general could you just talk for a minute about the work that the US Holocaust memorial museum does and how people can get involved with it well the museum was opened in nineteen ninety three and we've been you know we had got about two million visitors a year but we're also at a an institution that has global reach and so we're working with partners around the world we're translating our website into a variety of different languages so that there's an important step to to reach audiences not just in the United States but around the world so we work with teachers we work with with scholars we work with the with the general public to to emphasize the importance of this history and I think that that's that's so important in our own day John I wanna play one more clip from the film here's Jo Jo bachelor played by Roman Griffin Davis and his mother Rosie bachelor played by Scarlett Johannson why so happy things changing the NSF taking it to the front to be next unsuitable thank you you hate your country that's much I love my country is the one I hate it's pointless and stupid and the sooner we have peace the better the war will end we into dust and when they are destroyed we okay normal politics did not he's neutral ground stable to Switzerland those are Scarlett Johannson Roman Griffin Davis in Georgia rabbit John what did you think of the performances I was very impressed with Roman Griffen Davis and with Scarlett Johannson losing my first rhyme and Roman is a first time actor in this film I think he's amazing I think the kid who plays your key is amazing his friend I think the performances across.

Thanks for the introduction Fred. I'm Jonathan Trump Seth and I'm delighted to welcome Jon Allen to our podcast today to discuss his recent trip to East Asia including Taiwan and Singapore. I thought we could begin by touching on your own personal experiences in Asia before becoming President of Brookings you had extensive government experience not just in East Asia broadly but in Southeast Asia in particular the part of the region as you know that I focus on as Lee Kuan Yew Chair here at Brookings. Could you give us us and our listeners a sense of those experiences and how they informed your perspectives on Southeast Asia today. We'll first Jonathan. Thank you for the opportunity to have this conversation with you today. The trip that we took to East Asia was I think think very enlightening. It was very helpful trip for me. I had not been back in a number of years and I really enjoyed it with respect to Southeast Asia. It had always been a very special place to me. As a long serving Marine East Asia in general had always been important to us the theater as we call it is a naval theater of which the bring core as a major part and so east Asia in general but Southeast Asia in particular as had a special meaning to me. I've had the opportunity in the course of my duties while still on active duty to spend time in Vienne Tian and put on pen in Hanoi in ocean city certainly a great deal of time in Singapore. I think we'll talk about that in a bit in quality important Jakarta and of course Australia so I know the area pretty well strong relationships long-term desire by the United States to have strong relationships in this area those those relations I think have generally improved in the last twenty years or so and it comes from a whole variety of reasons I think a constructive foreign policy in Southeast Asia good relations between the American people and the various populations the emergence agents of democracy in some of the states that struggled for a long time under corrupt regimes or dictatorships and on top of that was this one moment that I think really made a huge difference in much of the region which was the South Asia's tsunami and perhaps that's a conversation for different podcast a longer story but it was my duty and it was my responsibility in many respects to prepare and and ultimately to help to execute with the help of course many many others in the Department of Defense the defense response to that soon Nami and I can remember standing on the end of the runway in Bunda itchy in the island of Sumatra after after the incredible devastation of that Swami and of course the earthquake which generated this Nami and seeing our South East Asian partners in particular Singapore and Australia but others and

"Asked if if we're able to shut down or reduce that we're going to do that these lizard and smugglers are not just going to throw their hands up and say, well, there goes my business. I had a great run. They're going to find the next week this link, right? So that is why we have to have an all encompassing border security proposal, which includes a physical barrier to stop that flow for migrating over and just coming across that porous border. That's why the president is being so firm in his resolve on this matter Mark to think what are the president's options left on the table right now. Do you think that perhaps we know the presence willing to go? She ate with Democrats. Do you think that it's possible? He could order some soup. Dangle some sort of carrot with respect to you know, amnesty or providing. More security for for dreamers. I think there's always that possibility. But with the ninth circuit ruled against the president in favor of President Obama's unlawful DACA program. It took the incentive away from them to for the Democrats to make Beal because they've got the courts to do it for them temporarily until the supreme court ruled on that, and I'm very confident the supreme court will uphold President Trump's. Authority in this matter. There's really no there's really nothing to negotiate for Democrats. They have no incentive incentive returns. But you know, we saw it last night. I mean when Chuck and Nancy. Stood in front of the American people that basically call the American people the same thing, they told the vice president over the weekend, which is not gonna she ations without complete compare relation by President Trump, and I'll tell you looked at me on Monday. When he heard that. He's like that ain't gonna happen. Exactly. Negotiate with people who won't negotiate. It's actually and everybody knows in politics. There's always going to be some horse trading, and you have to compromise. There's all these competing agendas and priority. So knowing that understanding that fact specially Schumer and Pelosi who've been there forever. Are they willing? It's almost like they're willing to give the president some crumbs, but not the wall for symbolic reasons. And the president has made a proposal after proposal decided negotiate not only have you moved away from a concrete wall. They're now talking about us steel barrier, right? Which obviously Democrats used to support those kinds of things I tweeted this morning, and you know, obviously with a little bit. Yes. I think this morning someone should contact the US surgeon general we now have two confirmed symptoms of Trump derangement Sinfield, member lock Democrats have no idea. Can't remember that they previously supported voters? Barrier. And the second is blindness if they actually came feed that there's a real crisis going down at the border, right? It's actually so just circling back to the opioid crisis from back in October of two thousand seventeen the president to Clarita national emergency with respect to the opioid crisis. You know, he he cited nine hundred forty four statute came the thirty to do. So is there any way he can kind of piggyback off that and say, look, maybe take it make this issue less about immigrants, even though illegal immigration is a huge problem. But take it off take it off that for one moment and really put it on fighting the war on drugs because we know we have a drought crisis in this country. And we know for a fact that the drugs are pouring in through the porous border and all these various ports of entry but most heavily through the Mexican border. So is there anything he could do there maybe to declare national emergency to fight the war on drugs. I mean would that be well received? By Americans or or not. I think that that's definitely one of the options that are looking at they currently have the authority under for the president to declare national directly department of defense and the US military to do the construction the action. And so the president said this to me on Monday, he open to that idea in very much considering it, but he would rather this actually go through the normal process in conjunction with congress, and he's willing to negotiate but congress in meeting, the Democrats just don't seem willing to budge at all they are dug in it to the resistance in that it's only going to be complete capitulation by the president or nothing remains to be an option that he has. It's something that you know, he even mentioned again apparently this morning here at the White House. But I do know that he wants to go through the process if possible. If they don't show any willingness, and he, you know, this is one thing we know about president. He's going to do the right thing. He's going to do what he was elected to do regardless of the cold and the the politics of it. He was sent to the White House to make a difference in to do these things that so many presidents of both parties talked about doing for decades. But would actually never get around to doing it. Right. Absolutely. So with respect to if we look past the wall one I feel like chip Trump has in his pocket is that Democrats realize like if they don't they're not willing to compromise come work with the president in any regard right now with this border security issue. I mean, what incentive does he have to sign any of their bills. I mean, he he could he could tell them look if you're not gonna come price me don't expect me to sign anything you're going to put on my desk next two years because I'm just on the on the good refused to do. So I mean, I know this playing hardball. But how is it? The democrats. Expected that Trump is going to sign off on their legislation since they now control the house when they won't do anything to work with him in any reasonable way over this border issue. Well, I mean. Always a possibility. But I'll tell you this is a president who who basically focused on the bottom line and getting results. He knows that one of the big things the reason why he was elected president of both parties like to talk about things, but not actually he wants to actually get things done. But to your point we already see that the United States Senate has decided to stop all business until the government is reopened. They actually wouldn't even vote on legislation that would be protecting Israel because they've Naba taking over antisemitic wing of the democrat party is now taking over there, not even voting on the bipartisan foreign policy proposals that have a lot of bipartisan support until the president capitulate. So they've actually done. Exact same thing. You mentioned it's up to doing it. They're just going to shut it all goes back to being a sales job. Right. I mean, you have to sell the American people on this members of the house. Members of the Senate, whatever it may be we do already have been parts of the border that have walls right in southern California. I mean, they're they're so is there any way that you market that and say, well, we've already got a wall here. So why can't we use a wall and other potential pours areas? I think that's absolutely right. I think that's one of the reasons why the president's going to go down to the border tomorrow. I just saw an article I think it was yesterday where the sheriff. I believe memory here. Juma Arizona talked about how win the wall went up in Yuma. I went down ninety percent, right. The flow of drugs was cut off the flow of criminal activity was cut off when that wall went up. We know that Walsworth it's happened in San Diego into so many other places yet now Democrats certainly consider a wall, which they use to support interpretive barriers and fencing they now are opposed to call it immoral. But no one ever asked him. So are you do you want to take down the walls that are currently for should we just take down all the walls incentives around our federal prisons and just go with grown technology, and and. The prisoners are going to stay where they supposed to stay. Had it right last night when he talked about how the American people whether they have walls at their home door at night. Are doing it. Not because they hate the people on the outside. But they love the people who are on the inside. The same basic premise commonsense. He wants to bring our borders. That's right. We all know that so many of these wealthy one percenters like Nancy Pelosi in these types of people they travel with security that they can afford to do. So, but the average American can't they don't have that security, and there's just been thousands of Americans whose lives have been lost stolen due to a legal immigration. We've interviewed some of the families here that that have lost children loved ones due to a legals right here in our state, Massachusetts. And it's just it's heartbreaking having a call these parents. I've had to do a personally to call these parents and hear about what happened. It's just devastating. Mark. Why is it that so many Democrats, you know, they they care to claim so much about let's say children getting separated from their families at the border, which nobody likes to see happen. But they didn't feign outrage when this happened during the Obama administration because we also those images of the kids look like a metal cages that actually was during the Obama administration. But we didn't hear peep about it. Then. But now that President Trump is in office. They're overly concerned about the well-being of these children. However, they weren't concerned when President Obama was president. And also, they don't seem to have that level of concern for American citizens who are being raped and murdered by legal immigrants every single year in this country. It is complete. And I think Senator Lindsey Graham said it so well last night on one of the cable network when when he was talking about the impact the federal workers, and he is and said he was sorry that these eight hundred thousand federal workers are not going to receive their paycheck 'cause they're stuck in the middle of this shutdown, but he's going to get their back pay when we reopened the government. The people who have lost family members and loved ones in Fred. Due to crime or activities from legal limits. They're not going to get their family members back. They're not going to get their loved ones back, and it is a very important fight for so many reasons, and it's something that I know that the president is absolutely committed on and it's going to be to the Democrats to see whether they want to work with this president not I I'm reminded and tell you here in the Boston area reminded by a story about legendary former house speaker tip O'Neill shortly after Reagan was elected. And the pros the Reagan tax cuts, and he vehemently opposed the minute speaker. He could have stopped them. But he said, this is a man who was elected at least it had desert to have his agenda which even down, and even though he was going to vote against it and urge everyone else to vote against the still deserved to have that upper down vote in the United States Congress. Obviously, we all know it passed with a large majority, and we build what happened because they don't do that anymore and unfortunate. Yeah, it certainly is. And it's really just troubling. How what short memories? Democrats have because you know, we covered ISIS extensively here at the Boston Herald went all that was going on during the Daban administration. And we know for a fact that ISIS has called upon its soldiers to penetrate, the refugee flows going into Europe that because so many of these refugees that flee Syria, flee, Iraq, they don't have documentation. So it's easy to mix and terrorists through the these refugee flows because it'd be very hard to distinguish one person from the next. So why knowing that ISIS has already called for that exploitation of these refugee flows, why on earth wouldn't ISIS or any terrorist group at Taliban or anybody else? Try the same thing through our border knowing how porous it is. Of course, they were trying it would make sense. So it's just I hate to say. We get hit. But it's a horrible thought. But it's a realistic one. Isn't it? And I'll tell you a secretary Nelson said the other day when we were at the White House. I can't say too much more beyond..
