"Take it but I think most firms will take the money the Nobel Prize winner professor Joseph Stiglitz well there is evidence that many even in conservative circles to accept the more constraints on the market will be needed with so much taxpayer money holding things together but the former trump adviser Gary Cohn resists the idea that capitalism as we know it is under threat I don't think this will be the death of of capitalism I I think that we will see more conversations about companies whether domiciled eyes I hope and I I've been talking about this I hope we talk more and more about domestic security and countries individually I think are gonna spend more and more time thinking how they incentivize capitalism to be more domestically oriented to create more robust domestic supply chains have the products and goods that are essential manufactured and stockpiled within their borders and then allow products that are not nearly as essential to be more internationally manufactured and and more globally traded and I think that's where we're headed I don't think this is then the capitalism I think we're just gonna get smarter about how we produce how we manufacture where companies are domiciled and how we protect ourselves for the long run Jerry can formally of Donald trump's council of economic advisers and Goldman Sachs that's it for today's business daily tomorrow man.

S. treasuries at less than a half a percent return because that's where they feel safe in sound this is the system that we deal with the economic system the market system is flooded with cash right now people probably have more cash may have a longer time because they're consuming less people are choosing not to travel you see the up with people choosing not to go out to dinner people are choosing not to write taxes not to write the words not to go out and do the things that they're normally doing in the economy so the fed cuts interest rate it's not going to spur economic growth it's going to make money cheaper money was already cheap and available okay prices for them yeah I'm I'm baffled by why the fed drop interest rates last week I I understand that you do that to try to stimulate the economy but this isn't going to stimulate the economy the economy like you'll like Gerry said was is awash in cash the ten year treasury got down to an all time record low this morning of point well not yet one twenty three one point three one percent not one percent a third of one percent with the ten year treasury every single the line across the yield curve was below one percent so what this is but the bond market is saying they're screaming loud and louder and louder that this isn't just about the U. S. so I under you those of you that say this is about the Alexion no this is the economy primarily of Italy and Europe collapsing and that is going to have a super negative effect upon our economy when you have a ten year treasury data point three one percent I mean these are these are startling startling numbers many but it brought up a good jobs report came out on Friday and it was good but jobs reports are lagging indicators they're all about last month and this whole coronavirus saying it has jumped out from behind a bush I mean this did not even start until two months ago in China so we are trying to play catch up in a fast fast way William Willem Marx is on CNBC this morning and he's another one saying there's going to be a lot of bankruptcies in oil country but I think that's the expectations.

Gary Cohen Interview
"Percent now let's get back to the main bag new economy forum in Beijing where our colleague from C. like what is about to interview Gary Cohn former economic policy assistant to the U. S. president on the pharmacy of Goldman Sachs Goldman Sachs spending more than twenty five years and chief operating officer January twenty seventh January two thousand seventeen sign trump's first appointees as director of the National Council affect the president's chief economic when you look at the US China trade war hello this is going to be one dealing what comes after that you get a phase one I think we're having a trees I think the two sides have some disagreements on trade if you look at what's going on the two countries are fine there's a lot of trade still going back and forth the United States is receiving the goods from China that we need to have a fully functioning economy well I hope I hope we get a phase one deal done and I think it's in everyone's best interest to get a chains have tried other going else that's a natural because the site and I think that makes sense the supply chains have moved maybe companies got too concentrated in one market in maybe we're seeing more global diversification things for companies to be more diversified about where they get their products to where they get their supplies but if you have this information staying and lasting for five years ten years I'm not saying this is a good this is a what I'm trying to say is everyone talks about how dramatic this whole trade congregation is whenever you have countries are disagreeing in some fashion make up their own mind what to what they need to do mark it's a very quickly made up their mind we need to diversify our supply chain we can not be as the dominant independent on one country once wires we've got to create more diversity the system which is a good thing for the system yes it's having some economic consequences but it's not the only thing going on in the car for a confrontation or or is this actually wants a deal and he wants it fast it's a Chinese play by the book I think it's more interested in getting it right in the long term that sat in this is an important asset stand how important is the farmers back to work in the United States we have a big agricultural economy in the center of the United States all farmers need to be exported our products and our families are going through a very tough cycle here losing exports China farmers need to get that back and they need to get that back my next summer phase one deal done would allow farmers to get back into the growing cycle we allow farmers to become a major exporter back to China the Chinese need to import so the question is who are they getting important problem and I think the warning from the United States is very poor so I think the president understands this is a short term phase one fix getting all farmers back into the site China is important for the short term what status quo with increased exports from where we are now back to where we were before any back to a higher level in the end president trump cares about protecting US election there's about protecting copyrights because no market access for US companies which makes a lot of sense you think in the United States is three hundred fifty million consumers China one point four billion consumers which you want to present a United States open up a market to one point four billion consumers if you're a U. S. company of course you want to open up that market to the U. S. companies to want to make sure that we have a level playing field for US companies can access the Chinese market just as the Chinese of axis for U. S. market around the world given they have little visibility are not investing in their markets and it could be a friend chief executive it could be a chief executive in Ohio transaction German that that must be a negative negative negative so we can cause a bunch and that is going on on the investment side and I'll be the first to tell you when you're looking at and you're looking at in the U. S. when you look at topix the first thing you're looking at is building factories building buildings nearby steel they were the first two things I thought that that was not the right decision I would never import products it's different terrifying services then is the terrible import products that go into something you're going to build a great job so the going state takes away the competitive advantage that we gave them in the lower corporate taxes remember we lowered taxes to compete with the rest of the world we lowered into their rates but then we made the Costa still women higher than just incentivize people from opening plants nearby states then layer on top of that the geo political situation we have in the United States right now and it's a very tough environment to take eighty eight you can think of the season to do a major capital expenditure in the United States because you know what the political environment will look like in United States we got a lot of candidates going up the corporations corporate earnings what's the cost of healthcare gonna be what's it going to cost you run your business the United States you're better off as a corporation day to wait for some more clarity before you make in the capital so so what November ninth twenty twenty money exactly is going to come I don't know for sure what date is or when it is clearly if you need to invest the capital right now to grow your business your doing that companies are spending money capital but if you're going to build a big what we would call bricks and mortar or stealing aluminum copper facility and you're gonna hire a lot of people to do that you probably will wait till you get some clarity to what is going to cost you as as as terms of labor and what it cost you to run that facility vis a vis hoping that facility in Mexico or Canada so what the federal reserve kind of getting attacked by the president they have a county that seems to be holding up but I guess it could turn the president is an independent agency in the United States and I think protecting the independence of the federal reserve is of utmost importance I think John Paul in the other governors and vice chairman of bad very good job of trying to walk the line of independence they are making their policy decisions based on the data that they are seeing they're always trying to figure out what is going on in the economy in the future which is a very difficult thing especially a globalized world today on the other other voting members have been making the right decisions based on the data they have at their fingertips at the time they make the decision is that central banker to the world and not just to the the America that is the central the dollar is a key trade currency in the world global commodities are denominated in dollars a lot of so in essence what does does have an impact on the rest is is that far behind your your golden sayings the markets and I think the I think the dollar is going to continue to remain on the relatively strong people talk about interest rates in the United States relative to the rest of the world we got high interest rates and people continue to migrate to a higher interest rate currency the dollar is a high yielding currencies I know we're gonna take a break and talk about quick don't things are focusing on okay are we going to see executives big financial institution twenty twenty I don't think so I I'm just not sure that's Gerry comes next next okay what are you doing at the moment right now besides speaking and writing and teaching which occupies a little bit of my time as many enormous amount of time in the venture capital in the world in two areas in medical technology and really in the secure communication secure data space the secure communications does take you know the payments space because it you can secure communication you can ask actually end up on the payments and that's a really interesting place to be in right right face it really shortly again come their former director of the national economic council coming up
Nikki Haley's Audacious Bet
"With the politics lead internal White House concern about president. Trump's conduct conduct in a new book former ambassador to the United Nations. Nikki Haley recounts then Chief of Staff John Kelly and secretary of state. Rex tillerson telling her that when they were listed the president it was to save the country. Haley called their actions offensive and said they should've quit as C. N. N.'s Kaitlan Collins reports. This all comes as president in a trump and sister republicans. There's nothing to see here on a peach mint as the White House. Braces for the first public testimonies. President trump is attempting getting a new defense now claiming the transcripts of the testimonies behind closed. Doors are doctored by Democrats tweeting. Republicans should put out their own own transcripts despite his claim Republicans who were in the room having disputed the accuracy of the transcripts which witnesses spent hours reviewing doing that is truly an honor to come back to New York City in New York. I'm Veterans Day trump railed against the inquiry from behind his keyboard just days before the hearings hearings begin. Some Republicans are saying the call was wrong but not impeachable that the president asked for an investigation of a political rival. That's over the line. Ah But if he asked for an investigation of possible corruption by someone who happens to be political rabble. That's not over them. That's ignoring during trump's advice not to use that defense. The White House insists there in lockstep in terms of messaging our all on the same page but as trump and his allies is dispute the testimonies of current and former aides. Their accounts of a chaotic White House. Run by an impulsive. Present are being confirmed in her new memoir. Keke Haley Claims John Kelly Rex tillerson tried to recruit her to join them and undermining ignoring trump's commands in an effort to save the country instead. Instead of saying that to me they should have been saying that to the president not asking me to join them on their side bar plan. Kelly didn't refute Haley's claims claims but said if providing the president with the best and most open legal and ethical staffing. Advice is working against trump. Then guilty as charged Haley who may have political ambitions over own steered clear of criticizing trump as. She argued against his impeachment. Do I think that is good. I think it is not a good practice for us. Ever to ask a foreign country to investigate an American I don't but did the Ukrainians call for an investigation. No did the president hold up aid. He released the aid as he should. I don't see it as impeachable now. Dan in the next hour a federal judge is going to start hearing arguments about whether or not the chief of Staff Mick. Mulvaney can join that lawsuit that was filed by the former deputy national national security advisor essentially asking if they've to listen to house Democrats or the White House when it comes to testifying on Capitol Hill. Charlie government has signaled. He doesn't want to be able to join that lawsuit and instead follow his own but it's also notable for another reason. Mulvaney that she was staff was played a part in drafting that eight page letter from the White House instructing instructing White House officials not to comply with any requests from house Democrats. But now he seems to want to rely on the court's decision about that talk about entry. If we might get the decision from the court the top of the hour. Thank you so much for that report. Ceylan back with our panel. Let's talk about the big news that we know of EH ETA Nikki Haley Book which is That tillerson and John Kelly said we need to save the country. They're not denying the that that you said that. What is really remarkable is that I'm sure you all heard Iowa's heard at the beginning of the administration that there was sort of a pact among the top national security cabinet officials goals that they needed to stick together to do? Just this Nikki. Haley is confirming that that was accurate. Yeah she is but I also I mean it's very She's doing it for her own benefit. Right I mean she's really selling people out as far as I can tell I mean I think the assumption is that they were coming to her in confidence out of concern for things that were going on In the White House now she's turning around and using it to her benefit to try to curry favor with president trump. I think her argument that well if they had a problem they should have onto to president trump. How does she know they didn't? I mean I'm assuming. They probably did discuss their complaints with Donald Trump and if they had serious concerns and they went to her These are people that let's remember. Donald Trump held up as his sort of pre eminent appointments. I mean they were the crown jewels of his were generous administration situation right. The he was held up in these are the best people and now suddenly I you know I think I think I'm just saying I think if they had concerns. I think that that's the story Eh. It's not the the the fact that it'd be -actly yeah. She's trying to make it out that they're doing something wrong. Yeah I'm the good girl that you said that that is the story. Yeah story is we have her saying. And I'm not denying that the secretary of State that the chief of staff and maybe even others were were trying to protect the country from the present. They work for well done of this confirms what's been coming out in book after book after investigative piece there have been so many and only three three years of the presidency that showed a pattern of people trying to work around the president or simply ignoring his direct orders simply bleat taking the order and doing what they intended to do in the first place in effect running parallel presidency. This lines up beautifully with that story which which people denied at the time also confirms exactly what Rex Tillerson and John. Kelly have both publicly said John. Kelly recently said that if left to his own devices the president would do something that would amount to impeachable defenses. That's why I think what Nikki Haley is. Doing here is sort of going. After a low hanging fruit these are two people who left the administration with a really deteriorated raided relationship with President trump. Going after them sets her up to be a pro trump candidate in twenty twenty four twenty twenty eight when i Seoul still think that maybe someone like Jeb Bush can come in and be the. GOP Senator Nikki Haley realizes that she needs trump if she does at least ambitious exactly right. The Republican Party has changed so much having said that the Washington Post obtained Another part or probably the whole book but they wrote about another part of her book. Tuck where she said quote. She went privately to the president with her concern that he had seated authority to Russian president. Vladimir Putin after the two leaders leaders met in Helsinki in two thousand eighteen and with her objection to what she called. Trump's moral equivalents in response to a deadly White House white supremacists rather March Charleville the year before so. She's being protective of him. She won't get line to say that she's she's all in on trumpism but that she's he's calling out the things that almost everybody saw as you gotta be kidding me moment. I feel like I'm going to have a little bit of the defender of Nikki. Haley position here at the table bowl. which is I think I do appreciate that? The first year of the trump presidency. You can just like what it is that he was doing. He was new to this job right and he had a lot lot of people who are telling him what he thought and that was the first year of the trump presidency. You had in various books as ray mentioned Gary Cohn who took some tariff order off the president's desk in threw it away I mean you could never imagine another presidency someone taking away directives that the president was GONNA sign. They treated him as if he was not the president of the United I stay at speak to and then the next question is why well and they see that we didn't see I mean. Look there's a lot to be critiqued under this. The presidency and I certainly am not going to defend a lot of the things that he's done. I'm a far more traditional but in defense of the President I think he got rid of a lot of people because he wanted to be the president of the United States and there were so many people that were not listening to him he was duly elected and so I have some sympathy for him in that perspective now. What are Nikki Hilly's motivations? I think we've covered that here but but I guess on that we're going to have to take a break but it's kind of remarkable how she more than I. I think anybody else who worked for him and has left has walked that delegate almost visible line of supporting him and criticizing him in a in a gentle enough way that she maintains

China Trade Talks Shaped By President Trump's Divided Advisers
"Trade Representative Robert lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin confirmed that those tariffs will take affect this Friday, if the Chinese backtrack from trade commitments, although the White House appears to be a United front in this moment NPR and the PBS show frontline found that top administration officials spent more than a year deeply divided on this issue top advisors fought bitterly over over. Whether tariffs would help the US economy or devastated, here's NPR's. Laura Sullivan, Steve Bannon, President Trump's former chief strategist I met the president in two thousand ten while get invited up to a meeting by getting day Vaasie. Says Donald Trump wants to meet and talk about running for president. And I said what country but a few days later. Bannon went and found he and Trump had something important in common shared belief that China pose a grave danger to the United States that he didn't know details he knew almost no policy, but what I found. Most extraordinary was when we got to the section on China, which kind of threw out there of a two hour meeting almost thirty minutes or more was all about China. Trump has railed against China and the US trade deficit for more than two decades. In television, interviews, he said tariffs would revive manufacturing jobs by the time. He hit the campaign trail Trump had found his audience, we can't continue to allow China to rape our country. And that's what they're doing in watched from the back when he started talking about trade. He started talking about China these working class people lean forward. No, other Republican talk like this. When Trump was elected. He assembled a team of advisers to focus on China pulling in people like Gary Cohn from gold. And sacks a hawkish economists named Peter Navarro his US Trade Representative Robert lighthizer an army general H, R McMaster who became his national security adviser. But this group of advisers quickly splintered deadlocked over whether tariffs would bring China to heal or send the world's two largest economies into turmoil. They broke into two camps the globalist versus the nationalists. Gary Cohn was Trump's top economic advisor, we agreed on what the fundamental issue was we agreed that the force technology transfer the lack of market access. The copyright infringements was all a huge problem would I think we have different methodologies on is power. We were going to solve that problem. Cohn was a globalist. He and others like HR McMaster believed. Heavy tariffs would hurt the country that the Chinese products Americans by will become more expensive business growth would slow. They wanted to partner with other countries to. Confront China with our full alliances nationalist like Steve Bannon and Peter Navarro the economists wanted to us tariffs to force China to the table to end longstanding issues of theft and unfair practices. They believed higher prices on Chinese goods would protect US jobs and bring back manufacturing. Bannon says there was little middle ground. If you take all the other nastiness on the things like the Paris accord and TPP rolling up and put it to the factor. Ten they don't compare to these weekly nasty trade makes there was a blob in the Oval Office Peter pulls at one of his charts, which the president loves next thing. You know, we have this big blow we have to exit and go back into the Roosevelt room Gary Cohn remembers it, well, he says Bannon Navarra were not bringing actual data to the meetings from time to time there were people that try to use unfort- noted undocumented facts cone says there were a lot of pictures and infographics whiteboard with giant pie charts. That's my job to get rid of the undocumented on foot noted facts. And make sure that those don't enter the Oval Office talking about Peter Navarro's charts. Yes, I'm talking about Peter Navarro's charts Navarro declined NPR's request for an interview HR McMaster said everyone in the room was concerned from the beginning about the economic threat China posed potential between the two men is clearly still high the prisoners is were wide open. And so were all the members of his cabinet all of you universally felt that China was a threat in a problem. That's correct. That's total incomplete lie. Bannon says he McMaster were never on the same page. I fought that guy every day. I don't wanna hear his nonsense now that he realizes he was on the wrong side of the history. If he said that he's a stone cold liar by the end of two thousand seventeen the discord was seeping well outside the White House. Susan Thornton was acting assistant secretary of state for East, Asian and Pacific affairs and served under ten secretaries. She said it was one of the most difficult assignments of her career trying to present a strong unified front to the Chinese you. Can't have this team. That's fighting with it self. That's a big disadvantage for us. Frankly, do think China was aware that there were different sides arguing yes, they were having fights in front of the Chinese delegation, which is like the cardinal sin of negotiating makes it look like your delegation doesn't know what it's doing. And that the leader of the delegation doesn't have sufficient authority to negotiate. Bannon says it doesn't matter if the Chinese new top officials were at odds he intended to win we came loaded. The most intense fights and debates in the White House were about this issue of terrorist. But tariffs as a proxy to the great economic war China that we're engaging for Bannon Navarro, and the nationalist it paid off in March two thousand eighteen Trump called stealing aluminum executives from around the country to the White House. We have with us the biggest deal companies in the finance tariffs on steel. Dylan, aluminum and six months later imposed additional tariffs on two hundred billion and Chinese goods cone accepted defeat. Did I feel like I had represented the non-tariff side of the equation for many people in the White House that didn't want terrorists. Well, I did. I felt like I give it my best effort, but he says, the White House globalist aren't the only ones who lost who I think lost was the United States consumer someone's paying terrif- whoever's paying the tariff is the looser for every dollar of tariff. It's collected. It's coming out of disposable income of the United States. Consumer today cone left the White House less than a week after the steel meeting and in the weeks and months that followed HR McMaster left his job, Susan Thornton left, her post at the State Department, and Steve Bannon had already resigned, but the administration is forging ahead with the nationalist agenda. Economists say it's too soon to know the impact of the tariffs. But they haven't lowered the trade. Deficit as Trump wanted in March the deficit with China was at a record high. Bannon says those are narrow outcomes he and the other nationalists are thinking bigger, I think the goal into China's quite simply to break the back of this totalitarian mercantilist economic society. So it's definitely us versus them. And I don't think is a doubt about that. Cone says that goal could turn an economic problem into something even more serious China is a superpower China has one point four billion people. That's a fact if we really become isolationist than China becomes 'isolation est. That seems to me like you're trying to set up a conflict trade talks are expected to continue this

New book on Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump paints a gloomy portrait
"Right. So this week guys. The guardian got a hold of a new book coming out March nineteenth called Kush ink by Vicky ward, I mentioned at top of the show or not the top maybe. But earlier in the show when I was talking about Trump printing out the Komi firing letter on the wrong printer. So in this book, some of our beans came true, check out this clip from episode eighteen the Daily Beast broke a story on Friday that Kushner's dad asked a Qatari firm to lend the Kushner's money to shore up sixty six sixty six Fifth Avenue. We've talked about the six six six building. It's the office building that's the centerpiece of the Kushner real estate empire, and it is one billion dollars in debt, and that loan is coming due in two, months, and Kushner and his family been scrambling to get money to pay this lingo. And that's what the city group and Apollo five hundred million dollar loans went into the office building. And Kushner's dad went to Qatar and ask them can we have some money and to to put into this office building Qatar looked at the office building because he bought it in two thousand seven right before the bubble bursts. So that was dumb and Qatar went no note that you and that upset Kushner, but what's interesting is that when that deal fell apart. Kushner backed a Saudi blockade of Qatar. Basically teaming up with Saudi Arabians to to put throw a blockade up against Qatar and Qatar is one of our key allies in the fight against Aycell in the region, that's national security level shit. We have thousands troops in Qatar like. But his, but he but his not getting alone. And now, it's not proven that. It's connected. But it's to him. It was clearly more important, but well, whether he did it because of that or not, but he did he did advocate for the blockade against Qatar. And it happened to be less than a month after Qatar refused to lend him money on that build interesting. So we'll see if that also. Yeah, we'll see Moller's looking into it. And also the securities the SEC the securities and Exchange Commission dropped an inquiry into Apollo Apollo global management less than a month after they agreed to lend Kushner one hundred and eighty million dollars. So go back and listen to eighteen because it's all about putting club Kushner, and I have a feeling we're going to hear a lot more about Kushner in the next couple of weeks anyhow in this new book, we learned that around that time Kush was confronted by Tillerson, and Gary Cohn who blamed Kush for Trump's abrupt endorsement of. Saudi blockade against cutter. Even though they're an ally in the region. We have our one of our largest bases there with a quite a few military stationed there. Shortly thereafter, cutter help to bail out Kushner from his devil building sixty six Fifth Avenue. The guardian also published a piece this week about cushion, how his friendship with Mohammed bin some on. The crown prince of Saudi Arabia is at the heart of US Saudi relations, and as we know Kushner Flynn, and a whole host Trump allies have pushed to provide the Saudis with technology to build nuclear reactor plants that could put them on the path to developing nuclear weapons if they want to enrich their own uranium, which they definitely do which is dumb because it's way less than half the price to get it enriched elsewhere and shipped back to you. So the fact that you want enriched uranium suspicious uranium means you want to make weapons. So let's go over a few things we discuss regarding Kushner on the pod I way back in April twenty seventeen Kushner's dad asked the country's for a loan. And they said, no, you're stupid. Get out of him two months later. Saudi Arabia throws up the blockade much to the chagrin of Conan. Tillerson. Incidentally, that's right around the time Jamalco Shoji left Saudi Arabia after he trash talk Trump.

"Welcome back to the morning show here on W CB. Then the controls. A little bit more about in just a moment or so. Good news and bad news. Good news for him. Maybe bad news Russ. But that's my that's my little tease for those of you who haven't or just tuning in. Well, you know, John McCain may be gone, rob. But he lives on through Mitt Romney and limits. As he's not even seen it yet in the US Senate, and is already becoming a thorn in President Trump's side. Fact, he's already slamming Trump in a new opinion piece published Tuesday, he says Trump's words and actions are disrupting the world. Romney will be sworn in this Thursday. I believe. Penned a Washington Post story setting the tone for his agenda and how he intends to vote on issues. It is well known that Donald Trump was not my choice for the for the Republican presidential nomination. No kidding. After he became Albany. I had hoped his campaign would refrain from resentment and name calling. It did not when he won the election. I hoped he would rise to the occasion his early appointments of Rex Tillerson Jeff Sessions, Nikki Haley, Gary Cohn, HR McMaster, former chief of staff John Kelly and secretary of defense James Mattis, we're we're encouraging but all imbalance his conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions. This month is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office. It sounds like he's a principal at a school. Taking the president to task. Look Trump is a rough around the edges a little bit. Yes, we can all admit to that. He's unorthodox as far as presidential timber concern damnit he's getting the job done. And if it weren't implore new, the never Trumpers, and of course, they? The structure is Democrats. He would have gotten a lot more done, including the wall. So don't you know, you could you could you could talk about his methodology and being a little bit rough around the edges and maybe not the same. The has the same kind of decorum presidential decorum that other presidents have had, but he is a man of action, and he has gotten things done a whole list of things too many to get involved in right now. And for Mitt Romney who hasn't even taken a seat yet in the US Senate. To start lambasting. The president Jimmy. He's worse than John McCain because John McCain took years to do it. Here Mitt Romney who's not even the Senate yet. He's already tried to plaster the the the president or one of the reasons we have Donald Trump made his because you know, you didn't provide the hard edge that people wanted you weren't a good candidate. You didn't relate to the people that Donald Trump related to kind of in the middle of the country and so forth. So one of the reasons we have Donald Trump is Mitt Romney in the not very good campaign. He ran back in two thousand twelve. Did a terrible job of the Andy was sort of within striking distance of Obama. And then now there was a natural disaster was at hurricane. On the east coast. And he felt he couldn't campaign in the midst of that, but bad job of closing. He was fairly close there with with a couple of weeks to go. And so he didn't get it done. And then Trump comes along. And does get it done kind of being the anti Romney really in a lot of ways. And then to be honest with you. If if Romney had won. I don't care when it was he brought a couple of times he run for president and one he'd be facing the same kind of thing pretty much from the Democrats. Anyway, I don't know if he would have gotten the same pushback by his own party. The only reason Trump has is because basically he's an outsider who ended up winning the election. But this is not the first time. That that Mitt Romney. Spoke badly Donald Trump. I you could go back about six years ago. Listen to this six years ago. Donald Trump is a phony a fraud thick of Donald Trump's personal qualities the bullying, the greed, the showing off the misogyny the absurd third grade. Theatrics. I said six years ago, I met two here. Yeah. That was during the campaign. So there you have it. He didn't like Trump then. And obviously he doesn't like Trump now. And that's not good for the Republican party. The Democrats can get they can disagree with each other. That could get in trouble. What what have you? But they always have each other's back will also if you if you're Mitt Romney, and you feel that way. Well, he should keep in mind that he had a an endorsement from Trump when he ran in two thousand twelve that was fairly high profile. There was a news conference and Donald Trump spoke with mitt and his wife there. Sort of cheering it on. And so he wanted Trump support in two thousand twelve all right? You can feel that way temporary bit for goodness sakes. I mean you wanted the man support when you ran. I was just looking at the Lakota here from Trump's twenty twenty campaign manager Brad far skelly at the is accusing Romney of lacking the ability to save this nation is truth. Is he says Mitt Romney lack the ability to.

Ryan this hearing comes two months before the midterm elections. So what did Sandberg Dorsey say about the way, Facebook and Twitter are responding to foreign influence campaigns on their platforms? Well, social media companies were slow to respond in the past to how big of a problem. This actually as you may recall, the Facebook's, Mark Zuckerberg, of course, publicly dismissed the idea that Russia had used Facebook to sow discord run ads influence Americans back in the two thousand sixteen election, Republicans and Democrats heavily criticized social media companies for what they described as a very lax response to this threat. And they took aim at Google today. For refusing to send its top executive to the hearing. They were invited. Google did not come. There was an empty chair. Instead that aside the tune that we're hearing from social media companies has changed a lot Sandberg. For example, said today that Facebook didn't grasp how Russia was manipulating Facebook back in two thousand sixteen to sow discord. Here's a bit of what she had to say. We were too slow to spot this and too slow to act that is on us. This interference was completely unacceptable. It violated the values of our company and of the country, we love now, we've heard similar me a couples from Facebook before now with Twitter Dorsey acknowledged that it had been manipulated that the company was slow to realize he mentality of the problem and both Dorsey and Sandberg said that their companies have taken steps to address this issue taking steps like what? Well, just in the past few months. Facebook Twitter, Google, Microsoft is well, they have all detected and taken down fake pages or counts or sites that were pushing disinformation are engaged in some other malicious activity some of those accounts were linked to Russia. In one case they were tied to Iran now in terms of the nitty gritty on how these companies are trying to combat. The problem Sandberg says that Facebook now has twenty thousand people working on safety and security. That's double the previous number. She says the company can review reports and fifty languages that can do that twenty four hours a day. And she says it Facebook is using better official intelligence to help identify abuse. But this is really a cat and mouse game here Facebook and Twitter say that while they're getting better at picking up patterns identifying bad actors that foreign adversaries at the same time are adapting what they're doing to try to stay one step ahead of the game. Is there a sense that one side or the other is winning? I mean, you said lawmakers applauded some of the work that these social media companies are doing today seem to be ahead. No, not really the fact that we're aware of these disinformation operations that were talking about them that you, and I are sitting here talking about them that's progress. But this is a very complicated issue. This sort of abuse and manipulation of social media raises questions about how these companies operate and about their business model. So it's tough to have a. Particularly rosy outlook on this. Here's how the committee's Republican chairman. Richard Burr, put it today without question positive things are happening the collaboration, dedication and resources and demonstrated a willingness to work with us or critical. But clearly this problem's not going away. Not even sure it's trending in the right direction. And on that last point that Burr made remember top national security officials, including director of national intelligence, Dan Coats. They've warned that Russia continues to target US elections through disinformation. And that of course is a concern because we have mature elections as you said in two months, so just
