What Next Year's Redrawing Of Voting Districts May Look Like
"Year year is is a a once once in in a decade opportunity for all 50 states to redraw the lines of state and congressional voting District's In most places. State lawmakers are in charge of drawing those maps. So both parties poured money into state legislative races this year, and the result was a major disappointment to Democrats. Republicans won in almost all the states that will be key to redistricting. We've got three reporters with us to talk about what these fights will look like in different parts of the country. Ashley Lopez from member Station Kut in Austin, Texas, Dirk Vander Hart from Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland and Steve Harrison of member station W F A in Charlotte, North Carolina. Good to have you all here? Hey, Ari. Hi, sorry. Actually, let's start with you in Texas. The state's getting more diverse, and it's one of many places where Democrats had hoped to take over the house and didn't what happened there. Yes, so those hopes were totally dashed. Democrats are hoping to gain a majority in the Texas house. You know, at least one chamber so they could have a seat at the table this time around because they've been completely shut out for decades, but much like every other state that Democrats were hoping to flip a chamber in they were unsuccessful. In Texas, they had their sights set on flipping nine seats. That were quite frankly, just out of reach for them, largely because those districts were drawn to favor Republicans by Republicans 10 years ago. So in case you wondered if, like redistricting was important. This is a good example. Why So Republican lawmakers are again completely in charge of the process, You know, from top to bottom and because of the U. S Supreme Court decision recently that said that states can gerrymander for partisan Basie's than they really don't have any reason to hold back. That makes it sound like Democrats in Texas have no tools at all. Is there any kind of check or balance on Republican power in the state? Yeah, well, like the last time the courts are really the only check they have right so Even though partisan gerrymandering his legal, which is drawing districts that favor of party over the other, drawing maps that discriminate against people of color is definitely not. That's illegal. And because race and partisanship sometimes go hand in hand, it might be kind of impossible for Republicans. Jerry Mander, based on partisanship without running afoul of racial discrimination laws. So and in fact, Stephanie Swanson with the League of Women voters of Texas, she said that this is actually been a persistent issue in Texas. So in the past 50 years, Texas has been found to have racially discriminated or violated the Voting Rights Act and every redistricting cycle. They could very much still do the same thing on Toe. Stop it. Yes! Oh, Texas has like a pretty bad track record with this and because of so much of Texas is growth in the past few years and decades has been overwhelmingly because of growth among communities of color groups say they're looking to make sure that those political lines draw like retain that political power and population growth that has accumulated over the past few years. All right, let's turn from Texas to Oregon because Republicans next year are going to have total control of 20 state. Legislatures, with Matt making power and Democrats are only going to have total control of seven, but Oregon is one of those seven. So Dirk Vander Hart, What does that mean for redistricting in your state? Well, that's right. Democrats here have super majorities in the House and Senate along with the governor's office, and as of January, they're going to hold the secretary of state's office as well. That's really notable here because in Oregon if the Legislature and governor can't agree on how to reach our legislative maps, the secretary of state takes over the process, and actually, in the past half century, the Legislature has failed to pass. They planned much of the time. So that is one reason Republicans were really adamant about hanging on to the secretary of state's office. In this year's election, there would have been at least some path for them to have meaningful influence in redistricting. Instead, though, a progressive Democrat named Show me a Fagan won the seat. So does that mean Republicans are totally frozen out in Oregon? As the Democrats are in Texas? You know for 2021 that absolutely looks like the case Earlier this year, there was an effort to try to establish a nonpartisan redistricting commission that would take control of the process from lawmakers. That's something Republicans were pretty supportive of, but it failed to even get enough signatures to make the ballot. So show me a fake in the new secretary of State has said she would appoint an independent commission to help advise her. We have not seen a lot of what that looks like. All right, let's head east to North Carolina, which has been the site of many high profile gerrymandering cases over the last few years. What things look like now in Charlotte, Steve Harrison. Yes. So I think it's safe to say North Carolina has been one of those bitterly contested states over political Jerry Mannering after Republicans took control here in 2010. It was a North Carolina case. It was heard by the Supreme Court in the summer of 2019, in which the justices said that Jerry Mandarin based on political party was not unconstitutional. And that was a decision that Democrats across the country said was bad for democracy. In North Carolina. There was also litigation and state court that was successful enforced Republicans to redraw legislative and congressional maps before the 2020 election. And with these new maps, Democrats were really hopeful they could win at least one chamber and have a say and drawing the new maps next year. But they had to win in rural and suburban areas. And like what happened in Texas and other places those hopes really fizzled out. The GOP kept control of both the House and Senate. And so what does that mean for redrawing the maps next year? Has the GOP indicated what they plan to do so they aren't giving any clues, But first they're doing a little bit of gloating. They're saying, Look, we want in 2010 on maps the Democrats drew and we want in 2020 on maps that Democrats said you were pretty fair, so they're taking a victory lap. The question is, are they going to take a hard line approach next year and draw the maps themselves and lock Democrats out? Democrats here are pretty worried. Here's Natasha Marcus, a state senator from Mecklenburg County, home to Charlotte. What I do think is that Republicans who run the General Assembly are smart, and they're gonna certainly Take steps to make things look transparent and one more thing. There's an assumption here that Democrats are going to benefit from new maps just because so much of the population growth is in cities like rally in Charlotte, which you're very blue. But the state's top Republican Senate leader, Phil Berger, is saying not so fast. He's making this kind of interesting argument that Republican voters in these cities are disenfranchised because the GOP doesn't have any representation there. So he's saying, Look, we have 30% of the vote and no members in the Legislature. So he's saying, Hey, maybe we should draw a safe Republican seat in Charlotte. So take a step back. These votes in November have implications for political power in the U. S over the next decade. What is this likely to mean? So, Yeah, one thing going forward in North Carolina, there was hope to have an independent commission to draw maps. That's what Democrats wanted. That's not gonna happen, and I think that's been a push in a lot of places around the country, and Republicans just aren't interested in doing that. So one thing I think you can have the possibility to continue nationwide is a situation where one party may get more votes for their state House chamber or state Senate chamber. But still have fewer seats overall. That is Steve Harrison of member station W F A E in Charlotte, North Carolina, along with Ashley Lopez of member station, Kut in Austin, Texas. And Dirk Vander Hart of Oregon. Public Broadcasting in Portland. Thank you all.
Pelosi, Schumer back stimulus bill after months of holding out for more money
"We've got House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate of Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer supporting a $908 billion bipartisan stimulus proposal. They said it could be the foundation for a new round of negotiations with congressional Republicans and the White House and this marks the first public retreat from their backing of a much larger $2.4 trillion pandemic relief package. So the move putting pressure now on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the GOP to act Meanwhile, McConnell on the Senate floor today, said he's been circulating his own plan to fellow Republicans. But at the risk of repeating something we all know Mr President. Making law will require not just the Senate's approval, but also the signature of the president of the United States. So after several conversations with Secretary of the Treasury and the White House shooting, Steph I put forward yesterday another proposal. Reflecting what the president Is ready to sign into law. We're told. This is largely a revision of an earlier $500 billion plan that had been rejected by Democrats says inadequate. Even so, House Majority Leader Steny Hope, Sawyer said House and Senate leaders a striving for a deal on pandemic relief by the weekend. And it will be voted on in the middle of
Think a coronavirus economic package is just around the corner? Not so fast.
"Headlines coming out of capitol hill. This week might have you think. Another round of much-needed coronavirus relief is just a few details away. After months of stalemate since the last relief significant bill was passed back in march. It looks like there is finally some momentum peel back the veneer just a little however and the reality reveals itself to be far more complicated. Let's go through the three options that have captured the imagination of lawmakers and advocates alike. Even more may eventually be thrown onto the negotiating table and elements of each of these may bleed into the others but let's not make this too messy at least not at first one. A bi partisan group of senators on tuesday unveiled a nine hundred and eight billion dollars proposal that looked to split the difference between house. Democrats two point four trillion dollar offer and senate republicans six hundred and fifty billion dollar offer. Part of the total cost would come from some of the five hundred billion dollars in unspent money from the last round of relief so the price tag is a little misleading. It's a stopgap measure that has growing support from rank and file lawmakers who are finding it more and more difficult to justify inaction in pursuit of the perfect. This proposal would stretch through the first fiscal quarter of calendar year. Twenty twenty one or until the end of march and cobble together one hundred and sixty billion dollars to fund a state and local governments that are running on fumes as tax revenue has dried up with the economic downturn. The measure also has more than three hundred billion dollars in loans and grants for small businesses. Twenty five billion dollars in relief for renters an extra three hundred dollars per week for unemployed americans it does not however include an extra twelve hundred dollar stimulus payment. That house speaker. Nancy pelosi and president. Donald trump both backed treasury secretary. Steven mnuchin said. He was reviewing the bipartisan proposal. The white house called it a nonstarter saying it. Plan to work with senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell and house minority leader kevin mccarthy on targeted covid relief plan to pelosi and senate minority leader. Chuck schumer have their own democrats only outlined for a new offer. They haven't released details but it was sent over to mcconnell in a private letter on monday. The draft was meant to restart negotiations which have been on hold for weeks in most unhelpful. Move mcconnell announced the offers existence and further frustrated democrats who say republicans aren't negotiating in good faith. Democrats have insisted cash be included for state and local governments a major point of dispute for many republicans. Who say it's not washington's problem to fix local budgets. No total cost was attached. Three mcconnell circulated to republicans a new version of the gop plan that would presumably meet with white house approval notably it to did not include a cost meaning to was meant as a negotiating document. The latest incarnation includes small business. Cash a one month extension of base-level unemployment benefits that are set to end at the end of this month. For twelve million americans and legal protections against lawsuits for businesses that are open during the pandemic it notably lacks money for state and local governments. The latest also a plus up unemployment benefits that had been demanded by the white house in earlier drafts in short. Each of these is negotiating. Starting point not a workable idea even lawmakers were at the table for the creation of these ideas acknowledged. they're nowhere near final version. And when you're talking about deals that have perhaps twelve zeros at the end. There's a lot of wrangling left to be done. Meanwhile at least some officials are starting to talk again pelosi. Mnuchin had their first call since election day this week. The pair were the principal negotiators on a follow up deals through the summer until trump abruptly called off negotiations via tweet in october. He later demanded they return. But pelosi wasn't keen to once again. Be set up for failure by amir curiel president in the finals ros of campaign and decided to hold out for the election results. It turns out. Her hand is now weaker as house. Democrats lost seats. President elect joe biden has been in full contact with pelosi and schumer speaking to reporters in delaware on tuesday biden. Said he wants congress to act now. As a first step toward efforts he'd pick up when he takes office on january twentieth but he mcconnell have yet to speak since election day he added for his part. Mcconnell has yet to explicitly say biden is one although he has in roundabout ways suggested he understands who will be in the white house. Come january twenty first. that suggests talks aren't really as far along as some would hope as if this weren't tough enough the. Us government faces a do-or-die moment at the end of next week. The united states is set to run out of cash as the clock ticks past midnight on december eleventh and into december twelve that hard deadline ads and urgency to congress to do something. There is zero political appetite to shut down government in the middle of a pandemic heading into the end of year holiday season. Some lawmakers have talked about attaching corona virus. Relief package to the must pass spending bill in may be a way to get some forward movement but it also gives mcconnell added leverage to limit the size of the tacked on bill. Mcconnell controls the senate floor with an iron grip and ultimately has veto power over the entire agenda in the upper chamber if he says a limited pandemic relief measure is going on the omnibus. it's omnibus arrest for all practical purposes. So we're left with a string of calculations will progressives such a scaled back relief package until they can badger biden in the new year can conservatives stomach any of the red ink and if it does pass will trump sign perhaps the last significant piece of legislation of his one term presidency. The answer to each of those is at best a shruggy emoji without government funding forcing a vote. There's no guarantee mcconnell would bring another round of biden backed relief to the floor. In the new year conservatives will not be eager to give biden early win especially if it carries cash for struggling states and cities and trump seemingly has yet to accept. The movers are showing up at his door next month. It's the perfect cliffhanger for our president who spent so long as a reality show producer hence while the optimism coming off capitol hill. That a solution is in sight is perhaps misdirected.

Democrats here have super majorities in the House and Senate along with the governor's office, and as of January, they're going to hold the secretary of state's office as well. That's really notable here because in Oregon if the Legislature and governor can't agree and how to reach our legislative maps, the secretary of state takes over the process. And actually, in the past half century, the Legislature has failed to pass. They plan much of the time. So that is one reason Republicans were really adamant about hanging on to the secretary of state's office. In this year's election, there would have been at least some path for them to have meaningful influence in redistricting. Instead, though, a progressive Democrat named Show me a Fagan won the seat. So does that mean Republicans are totally frozen out in Oregon? As the Democrats are in Texas? You know for 2021 that absolutely looks like the case Earlier this year, there was an effort to try to establish a nonpartisan redistricting commission that would take control of the process from lawmakers. That's something Republicans were pretty supportive of, but it failed to even get enough signatures to make the ballot. So show me a fake in the new secretary of State has said she would appoint an independent commission to help advise her. We have not seen a lot of what that looks like. All right, let's head east to North Carolina, which has been the site of many high profile gerrymandering cases over the last few years. What things look like now in Charlotte, Steve Harrison. Yes. So I think it's safe to say North Carolina has been one of those bitterly contested states over political Jerry Mannering after Republicans took control here in 2010. It was a North Carolina case. It was heard by the Supreme Court in the summer of 2019, in which the justices said that Jerry Mandarin based on political party was not unconstitutional, and that was a decision that Democrats across the country said was bad for democracy. In North Carolina. There was also litigation and state court that was successful enforced Republicans to redraw legislative and congressional maps before the 2020 election. And with these new maps, Democrats were really hopeful they could win at least one chamber and have a say and drawing the new maps next year. But they had to win in rural and suburban areas. And like what happened in Texas and other places those hopes really fizzled out. The GOP kept control of both the House and Senate. And so what does that mean for redrawing the maps next year? Has the GOP indicated what they plan to do so they aren't giving any clues, But first they're doing a little bit of gloating. They're saying, Look, we want in 2010 on maps that Democrats drew and we want in 2020 on maps that Democrats said We're pretty fair, so they're taking a victory lap. The question is, are they going to take a hard line approach next year and draw the maps themselves and lock Democrats out? Democrats here are pretty worried. Here's Natasha Marcus, a state senator from Mecklenburg County, home to Charlotte. What I do think is that Republicans who run the General Assembly are smart, and they're gonna certainly Take steps to make things look transparent and one more thing. There's an assumption here that Democrats are going to benefit from new maps just because so much of the population growth is in cities like rally in Charlotte, which you're very blue. The state's top Republican Senate leader, Phil Berger, is saying not so fast. He's making this kind of interesting argument that Republican voters in these cities are disenfranchised because the GOP doesn't have any representation there. So he's saying, Look, we have 30% of the vote and no members in the Legislature. So he's saying, Hey, maybe we should draw a safe Republican seat in Charlotte. So take a step back. These votes in November have implications for political power in the U. S over the next decade. What is this likely to mean? So, Yeah, one thing going forward in North Carolina, there was hope to have an independent commission to draw maps. That's what Democrats wanted. That's not gonna happen, and I think that's been a push in a lot of places around the country. And Republicans just aren't interested in doing that. So one thing I think you can have. The possibility to continue nationwide is a situation where one party may get more votes for their state House chamber or state Senate chamber. But still have fewer seats overall.

"gop" Discussed on WSJ What's News
"This morning, we talked about key congressional races to watch on election day. One aspect that both parties have been paying attention to is diversity Democrats and Republicans are working to increase diversity in their ranks, but it's been a tougher challenge for the GOP joining me now to talk more about their efforts is wall. Street. Journal. Congressional reporter Natalie Andrews Hi. Natalie. Thanks for being here. Thank you. So. Not only what can you tell us about the Republican Party's efforts to diversify its ranks in twenty eight? After the Midterm Elections Republicans in the house were criticized for a low amount of women and people of Color in the house. The numbers dropped because some people ascended to higher office and because there were retirements but it stood in stark contrast to the Democrats who had increased diversity, a number of women in their ranks and so house minority leader Kevin. McCarthy made this a priority to make sure he was supporting women and people of Color in races, and this was also something he was that was done after other lawmakers in the conference pushed him to do. So what have been some of the challenges for the GOP in becoming more diverse? The platform of the Republican Party has not always reached out specifically to black people and Democrats have historically represented majority minority districts and have focused on issues that impact minorities we have the congressional black caucus is entirely democratic right now, and they have an agenda that they say appeals to black people in America And we've seen that at times the president has made comments that do not win over black voters. He has made comments that members of his own party have called racially charged or even racist, which has been a problem with Republicans as they try to increase their ranks. So. What can you tell us about this year's GOP candidates for the house. In the house, the Republicans are set to lose. Their soul black. Republican lawmaker and that is will heard and so after Mr heard announced his retirement, a lot of is went to. Own, my goodness, they're losing their one black man in their caucus in. So we sent out to look at how they're recruiting efforts had gone to diversify, and they are set to have at least one black man come to Congress next year that would be Byron donalds in he is running in a safe Republican district in. Florida it's in the Naples area. He's been a state lawmaker for the past four years and has been involved in local tea party groups and various Republican groups for. About a decade. So that is really the one lawmaker who looks like he's coming to the house next year, and then there's a few competitive races such as in Utah, Burgess Owens is challenging Ben McAdams and in Texas in the Houston suburbs Wesley Hunt is running against congressman lizzy Fletcher in Texas. How does that compare to what we're seeing among? Democrats, in the House, this election Democrats are set to increase their diversity. We've seen a few people of Color winning primaries or win in safe districts. So. We do expect their numbers to grow but this is something that Democrats have placed a priority on and they do tend to speak to minority groups specifically, whereas Republicans often talk about how they don't want to be focused on so-called identity politics and reach out to groups specifically instead they want their policies such as economic policies to. Ring true to voters and have them vote and that's one thing that when I talked to Byron donalds he spoke about that. He doesn't want to be the mold of what a black person is in politics. He's a conservative he talks about criminal justice reform. He introduced himself to voters by calling himself a strong trump supporting gun owning liberty loving pro-life, politically incorrect black man and those are the Republicans that we're seeing running for Congress this year. How about compared to what we're seeing in the? Senate in the Senate, there is one block Republican Tim Scott and two block Democrats Comma Harris and Cory Booker. There are a few black candidates who are Republican, who are challenging Democrats and the one that we're watching very closely is John James and Michigan that become competitive if it swings his way, he'll join tim. Scott. In the Republican Conference Natalie, you mentioned the midterms in two thousand eighteen which resulted in a record number of women being elected to Congress overall. How is Congress doing in terms of diversifying representation? When you look at the numbers, Congress is still white in as a majority. There are fifty three blockhouse lawmakers including the delegates fifty, two of those are Democrats. So those numbers are slowly increasing and when you incorporate women, LGBT members, people of Color Democrats will say that half of their caucus belongs to one of those diverse groups. But that still means that trunk of the caucus is white men, which is obviously what's been members of Congress predominantly since the beginning of the country and on the Republican side, Kevin McCarthy worked. To increase diversity this year, they had a record number of candidates run for office who were black. It's just a lot of those candidates ran in districts that are safely democratic, and so there weren't as many that ran in districts that were winnable for Republicans and we do have these swings seats that we're watching, but overall the sixty four. So candidates that Republicans had enter the race a lot of those were in safe Democratic Seats Wall Street Journal Congressional reporter Natalie Andras Natalie. Thanks so much for being here..

"We keep talking about it's on it's off it's on what's happening well, extreme mixed messages from the White House helped any of this we'll republicans want to do. We have a hard time with Nancy Pelosi she thinks she can influence the election. And I think they're hurting themselves by not doing it but the Republicans want to do it we WANNA do. Stimulus we want to help the airlines again because. Remember the president said everything's off I'm cancelling. All of the all of the negotiations until after the election if I'm elected, I'll get all kinds of stuff done. But then he changed his tune saying he wanted both sides to go big the back realizing perhaps the era of is ways ahead of an election. So there know they've tried to put these back on into the treasury secretary has offered a one point eight close to one point nine, trillion dollar by A. Compromise deal that he put on the table over the weekend with the speaker of the House. You want to go to the White House. What's the best way to work this out now? The White House it's one of the most dangerous places. In, the country she turned that down saying, Hey, look, there's no national plan for testing not enough money for testing tracing treatment. There is no standalone bill without a bigger bill, and so they're still at the negotiating table but I would tell you Brad. There are a lot of people that are saying including Mitch McConnell in the Senate. It doesn't look like this is a deal that's going to happen before McConnell. McConnell, it's like it's becoming clear. You can rush things through the Senate right now it's just not this. Legislation is harder he wants more of his Republicans signed on and they're not willing to go as high as two trillion dollars. The White House is signaling. They might go that high as two trillion, but you're going to lose almost all Senate Republicans. It's hard to see what the path forward would be toward a deal at this point. And if you want an example of just how important this is, you can look at Lindsey Graham, he was supposed to a debate with his Senate challenger. This weekend will refuse to get a covid tasks. He said he didn't need one but a lot of people suspected it's because he didn't want to get one because God forbid he tests positive he wouldn't be able to. Preside over these hearings his debate basically it's canceled. He's getting demolished in fundraising all of a sudden. It just shows you that the confirmation of Amy. CONYBEARE. It takes precedence among all else right now in the GOP Senate that even if it costs you your Senate race, that is clearly where the priority lies fascinating stuff we'll wait for today Trish in Washington.

"The. Virtual Republican National. Convention kicked off yesterday with an official role call that nominated Donald Trump and mike pence for re election as the GOP ticket Alina train was watching everything yesterday and last night and is here now with her big takeaways Elena Sue one question I had was how much was the corona virus in the pandemic going to be mentioned we actually that was a big topic last night it was I think that heading into new that they wanted to spend a. Lot of time on programming around the coronavirus specifically because they know this is going to be a key priority for voters in the election in November but I would say that the messaging we saw around covid was really an alternate narrative of how the pandemic has played out essentially, they argued that the president acted fast and everyone else got it. Wrong. So I think that the messaging around the corona virus and what we saw last night, it was a bit of revisionist history. That brings me to the second point, which is there was a lot of fact checking that journalists were doing about the statements that were being made yesterday. Yes. We saw a lot more fact checking last night from the networks than we did last week during the Democratic National Convention, which definitely sparked a lot of criticism from people on the right on twitter and elsewhere last night. But we saw MSNBC and CNN cut away from live covered several times at one point motto who was headlining for MSNBC. said that they were going to try to keep it to a minimum, but they felt they had their duty to fact check in real time and that led to skipping a lot of speeches, missing parts of speeches, Jonathan Swan said that we would look for made for TV moments that hearken back to President Trump's reality TV background and we saw that last night with a panel, the president convened with a group of hostages that had been free during his administration. Yes and so the president and his. Campaign know that one of the best advantages they have this week and leading into the election is that he's been in office and some of the successes fees had while president and we saw them play that up tonight, the hostages six former hostages, kind of in a semi circle surrounded president trump and a taped interview from the White House, and it really spoke to trying to paint more of the president as someone who's freed these people and will continue to work hard to do the same in. His Administration I. Think it also kind of played on the empathy of the president he tried to connect with these former hostages on special level will the great people of Utah really wanted me to do something about the two of you and we were able to do it and a little bit of a miracle I. Think Frankly, it was a very hustle period definitely leverage that aspect of the office of the presidency tonight last night ended with Republican Senator Tim Scott, the only black Republican in the Senate. Mounting a pretty powerful critique of Joe. Biden. Yes. It was a tough assessment of Joe Biden's record on race Joe. Biden said if a black man didn't vote for him, he wasn't truly black Joe. Biden. Said black people are in Monolithic community. It was Joe Biden who said poor kids can be just as smart. As white kids either all things that Joe Biden has said and something that Tim Scott. As the only black Republican. In the Senate is poised to say and he he made it very personal as well as which I think brought this speech.

"On W. GOP. It is only July. All kinds of things could happen between now and election Day. Still, it's probably safe to say there are at least three factors voters are weighing as they decide between President Trump and Joe Biden. The first, of course, is he's handling of the pandemic. The president's handling of covert 19 even as cases rise in many parts of the country, the second, maybe racial justice and a demand for major change in how people of color are treated in the U. S. And the third is this big story about Russian bounties being paid to Taliban fighters to kill America? Kans in Afghanistan. President Trump tells Fox business He doesn't believe the intelligence I think it's a hoax. I think it's a hoax by the newspapers and the Democrats. President was asked. What if it is true if it did happen? The Russians would hear about it, and anybody else would hear about it that was involved. Joining us live. John Harris, founding editor of Politico and John. Up Until now, we've heard from the president's handlers on this, including the National Security advisor. Now, Mr Trump is speaking out. What do you make of his reaction? Well, he's going to a familiar playbook, which is the same that serious allegations are hopes and hope That's enough to rally his side that they behind him. Ah, he's used that an impeachment use that basically with every important controversy that's come before He's never had one arrived with this terrible timing. As you point out on all three of those issues. He's really on the defensive. Let's hear what the president told Fox business about the pandemic. I think that at some point that's going to sort of just disappear. I hope You still believe so disappear? Do Ideo? Yeah, sure, Some point. And I think we're gonna have a vaccine very soon, too so taking in account that that sound bite. Which of the three items do you think we'll have the most impact on the president's reelection isn't the pandemic and our major concerns about health and economy? I think it is because those clearly on turn trajectories are going to last all the way through the balance of the year. Whatever else comes into the news cycle, we know that the shutdown And the economic effects of that shut down Ah, and the continuation of the disease. We know almost to a certainty that those were goingto remained very much in the forefront. Of the news and they're correctly there might a frame this whole election year. Joe Biden's campaign has been described by some as less is Mohr. How do you think he's doing with the carefully chosen appearances and remarks? Well, I would agree with that lessons Mohr because ah, really, what he's doing with that strategy is keeping this weighs about President Trump and his record on and basically all the polling, including a politico morning console pull just today shows six out of 10 voters disapprove. Of President Trump's performance. 75% of the country thinks we're on the wrong track. So as long as Biden can make this keep the discussion about President Trump. Ah ah, he's in good shape. Of course, President Trump is trying Tio frame this as Ah. More of a choice between he and bind rather than a referendum on his own record.

This is pretty much the last day before a month or so of people being away for a couple of weeks and then coming back to a couple of weeks worth of political story that is with reason going to suck all the air out of the room. So Oh let's do this. An economic level set of sorts before the news gets subsumed Catherine repels Washington Po. She is all alone today in our New York Bureau. You're a Catholic.

I want to talk trade now that we have a deal on the US MCA and and we are told a deal with China that we haven't seen yet but we're told it to deal Can we say we have a trade peace. In our time I would say tensions have eased certainly and whatever anxiety there might have been in in markets amongst retailers dealers and manufacturers and others that things would escalate that has abated. But even so what we know about the China trade deal is not that we we are rolling back all of the tariffs so that we would have the same kind of landscape we had before trump took office we were only rolling back some of the tariffs for whatever the steel well is phase. One deal that. Is that materializes so whether you would call this a piece or a detente. I don't know it's kind of like two steps backward one step forward word but but certainly You know there's some relief out there that things didn't get worse okay Let's do a another little. Look becky thing and that is this a year ago. Talk of recession was very high. Stock Market was jittery. People were nervous. What a difference a day makes an off a year makes rather in all fairness rush? Yeah it looks like a lot of the concerns about the future of the economy and the imminent possibly imminent downturn were overblown The yield curve has uninvited and the recovery has continued. Its now more than a decade long which makes it the longest recovery on record and look unemployment is still falling or is or is it least not rising so all of that is good whether or not You know we can expect us. Indefinitely definitely is a is a separate question business cycles or called cycles for a reason but at least in the near term it does look like concerns were overblown. Okay About the future. Then and what we were promised as you point out in a column in the Post today And you know the calendar says this is the two year anniversary of This week I guess. Sunday is the anniversary of the GOP's tax cuts and it's not a restricting the case to say that that what was was promised by the President and Republicans in Congress was not delivered. Yeah on a number of metrics in fact this toddler this two year old all tax cut is sort of behind on its developmental milestones right. We were told that the tax cuts would pay for themselves. In fact that has not been the case defecates deficits have continued to expand both because of greater spending and because tax revenues are not rising as much as you would expect during a reception year recovery because the tax cuts We we also have not seen supercharged. GDP growth trump as. You may recall. Said we should expect something like six percent growth instead. We're getting about two percent which is about what we had had before trump took office investment actually fell the last couple of quarters. I wouldn't necessarily blame that on the tax cuts but it does suggest that they were not They they did not give it a sufficient to overcome whatever trade war Concerns there had been and wage gains have also been kind of disappointing. We did not see the promised. Major wage gains that the tax cuts were supposed to deliver year over year and inflation inflation adjusted terms. They're about at the same today as they were before. Trump took office so on a lot of key metrics The tax cuts are not quite delivering. Now and I'm sure the proponents will say give it more time Right give more time but so far the metrics. Don't don't look so great okay. Ah I WANNA go sideways into the politics of this past week for just a second And I wanted. Let's completely set aside the stock market. About which the president was jubilant again today more record highs but I I want to ask you why things like consumer confidence and retail spending and all those sort of gut level metrics of this. Connie don't seem to be being affected by the the Hullaballoo in Washington. Well it's not not clear that they were during previous Hullaballoo either right The economy was pre determined. The the economy remained pretty. We strong during Clinton's impeachment and in fact. GDP growth was better. It didn't seem like impeachment affected the economy or I don't think markets substantially substantially one way or the other they seem relatively divorced from what another which may be is just a reflection of the fact that presidents don't control the economy they don't control stock markets? They get a Lotta they get too much credit too much blame when things are good or bad respectively And we like to think that policymakers I are are pulling all the levers but really they can only kind of affecting us on the margins even when we're talking about something major as potentially removing president Finally in super-quick. What do you think of my premise? That we're going to take two weeks and everybody's GonNa go away and then we're GONNA have two more weeks of impeachment and then finally Mila January people are GonNa tuned back in again. I hope you're right that we have two weeks where everyone gets to go away. That's where I think your your Prediction may be most suspect. Be some middle of the night tweets. Well Yeah Probably Catherine Bell Washington Post. Thank you Catherine. Thanks have a nice weekend on Wall Street late on a Friday and December or on a Friday in late December. More properly another day. Another record details when we do. The numbers.

And there was a New York time opinion piece by someone. I don't remember who it was. But it was essentially that we should just let them do it and not even fight it because it's going to backfire so God damn hard on them. I don't necessarily agree with that.

And frankly, I'm capable of inspiration at anytime, including now, so basically saying like this has been in the works. And also we could just come up with bullshit whenever we want because that's right. As people in power right now, also, Mr. Robertson who said all this shit about them doing all this shady garbage. He also wrote the camp campaign finance Bill that passed the Michigan state Senate Thursday and also has himself been sanction for campaign finance violations. So cool.
