Ivanka Trump Does Not 'Plan to Be Involved in Politics'

"I'm continuing my discussion of Trump's big announcement, but I also want in this segment to broaden the discussion to look at sort of a post mortem of what happened in the recent midterms. Now, a couple of details with regard to Trump, the first thing is I saw a very interesting statement by Ivanka Trump, basically saying I'm stepping away from politics. Now she didn't clearly say that she was doing this along with her husband, Jared Kushner. She says, quote, I'm choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating. And so I think what she's trying to say is that I'm not going to be appearing on campaign rallies with my dad. And I'm also going to stay away if Trump is reelected from the Trump administration. And to the degree that she means herself and her husband, Jared Kushner, I think this is a good thing for them, but it's also a very good thing for Trump. It's a good thing for Trump because it's always complicated where when you have a close family that are anchored in a position of great authority and power and trust in The White House. Everybody else doesn't know how to navigate with regard to them. Of course, they are trusted. But on the other hand, they're not necessarily experienced now Jared Kushner in some ways did bring some experience. He was very well connected in the Middle East. And his impact, I think in some ways was positive because he helped a broker important deals, the move of the embassy to Jerusalem, the Abraham accords where Arab countries made a pact with Israel that would have seemed unimaginable. In fact, people like John Kerry said it's ridiculous. You can't get this kind of agreement without the Palestinians and Trump sort of made it look easy. So I'm not implying that Jared Kushner didn't do anything, but I also think that what happens very often for a business guy like Kushner is he tends to look at The White House as a way of kind of making connections.

"Well, very good. In closing Jared, I want to ask you, you know, I defend you and I defend all that your team did. But you know you're the recipient of some smears on the right and people that just tend to focus on you. What's your response to that just specifically or generally or broadly as you do this work as it must be frustrating to kind of get it from the right, but also from the left, and you know, I tell people, I said, look, unless you were in The White House and you could actually see how things were done. I was in the office with Jared and Avi, and they were doing calls about how to build the border wall. But how to get it done. How to use any sort of military funding. And I can't remember the details of it. I was like, that's who was in charge of that. So do you have any response to that, Jared of any kind of the smears that sometimes come at you or towards you, especially now that the book is out? Yeah, I would just encourage people. You know, if you want to, if you want to judge me, then now I've given you my story. You can judge me and say what I say what I'm not for. But what I would say is again, when I got to Washington, I was very ill equipped to understand the positioning and how people position themselves. And so I basically just went and I tried to get things done. And so again, I was very, very lucky that president Trump gave me the opportunity that he did to work them on campaign. And then to work in The White House and all the different files and again, there were some files that I wanted to work on, like prison reform, the two were very helpful in doing, which was tremendous. Then there were some files that I was given because no one else Bannon and Kelly weren't getting it done by building the wall. And so, you know, I think that I am who I am. I don't apologize for who I am. I'm very proud of things I've done. It's been an absolutely amazing journey, but I think now for the first time, I didn't do a lot of talking. So other people were defining me and often based on not full information. So now I've put my book out and I do interviews and people can form their own opinion and see what it is. But throughout the four years, I think I served the country well. I served president Trump well. And very, very proud of the different accomplishments I was able to play a role in whether it was getting the trade deals done with master lighthizer, whether it was getting the border wall built with Mark Morgan and Chad wolf and general seminary and everybody else or whether it was working on operation warp speed to get the vaccine done in record time, but lots of slaoui and Gus perna, whether it was working on the Abraham accords with Aldi and Robert O'Brien, secretary Pompeo and then we spent tape on others. So very, very proud of the work that we did and I just hope that others learn from what was to happen to the Trump administration. I think the media tries to paint it different than it was. They try to make it seem like every day was January 6th, but the reality was, is that the results were phenomenal, a lot of great things happened. And I do think history will want to study how that occurred. And that was because there were outside of is going to Washington focused on results and doing it in a different way than had been done previously. By the book and judge for yourself everybody, breaking history of White House memoir by Jared Kushner and Jared, I loved working with you on some projects here and there. It was fun and you were always really great to turning point to me and I thank you for that. And we'll see what the future holds. Everyone check out a copy, break in history, a White House memoir by Jared Kushner. Jared, thanks so much. Thank you. And Charlie, if I could just close by saying that it was very easy to be good to you and to turning point because you guys always made things very easy for us. Captain to so many talented young people and every time we wanted to get something done, you guys were just absolutely phenomenal partners to work with. So as much as we were enabling you to do many things, you were making our job a lot easier and that was what a great partnership was about. So very grateful for all the great contributions that you and your organization have made. Thank you. Well, thank you, Jared and we'll see what the future holds. Thanks so much, Derek. Talk to you soon. Thank you. Thanks so much for listening, everybody. Email me your thoughts is always freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. Thanks so much for listening. God bless. For more, on.

"And then on impeachment and all of that, I want to ask you though, you know, what is the future for you and you think the future of the maga movement and president Trump? I mean, there's a lot of whispers of whether Trump's going to run again. This is quite an amazing portfolio of accomplishments, but as you all know, that's only one term. What do you think the future is in store for you? So let me talk about the maga movement first because I do think that, again, I was somebody from New York who's probably center left to was in an echo chamber of people with the heads of media, heads of bash in, had some technology, has a finance. And I thought I was with the worldly crew. And then I write in the book about my personal journey of traveling with Trump throughout the country going to Springfield Illinois with him to a rally of 15,000 people. And the manager says, congratulations, sir. You just broke Elton John's 36 year record beforehand Trump turns me and says, well, see, I don't even have a guitar or a badge and if I had a guitar and I learned that the issues were much different than people thought. And I think that what Trump did on policy was some of the most unbelievable pro American policy. I never thought of him as left or right. I thought of him as a pragmatist, primarily. And a lot of his policies really resonated with me in that regard. So I think what you've seen after him is he's not only inspired a lot of business people to come to Washington. We had a lot in our administration who were phenomenally capable and phenomenally competent and low ego. What he also did is now a lot of people are taking his policies and building them out. And I think that that's becoming the heart and soul of what's a new Republican Party. And so you saw that we grew more diverse and I picked up more votes in 2020 than at any time before. And I do think that it's a growing party. And if they focus on the policies and they do the right things, I think it will continue to grow. So that to me is tremendously gratifying, like I said, I'm very long, our country. I think we have tremendous potential with the right leadership and the right policy, unfortunately, that's not what's being implemented now. But it's very doable and people do it. So I think the maga movement is really just early on. I think Trump's also they've got a whole new breed of politicians who have learned how to fight back and have learned how to operate like him. And so I think you're going to see a big difference in that regard. For me, though, look, I never thought I would be in politics. I kind of write about my journey getting there. It was a thrilling journey. It's an action book. I mean, the book reads very fast. I tried to give people the intensity of what it was like to vote constantly dealing with a lot of complicated people and investigations, but also struggling to figure out how to navigate new terrain and new job and trying to get things done. And then how we got things done. So I hope that what my book does is both inspiring people from the private sector to come into politics and then also helps them learn how to avoid some of the mistakes that I made, which I think I'm pretty honest about in the book. And hopefully accomplish even more than I did much faster and with less pain than that I did it. So right now I'm loving the time with my children and love and being in the private sector and loving just being in a free state of Florida and so I think that that's really where my head's at right now, but it was absolutely incredible experience. And I felt like it was very important to put it all down and leave the book behind for others to share that experience..

"I think it could have some very serious implications in more ways than one. So also Jared, you worked on all these different sorts of things. I want to talk just about one in particular, which was the virus and the lockdowns. You know, there have been some people that said that you were the one and I think this is such misreporting because I know it for a firsthand because you and I were communicating throughout this and you were very busy, but that you were somehow the designer of the lockdowns and wanted things to continue to be locked down. It was actually the opposite. You were one of the ones pushing to reopen America. Talk about your role and how you just got thrust front and center into unprecedented biological attack, whether from COVID and our response to that, walk us through all that. So I have about four chapters in the book on this. I could have written a whole book on it, but bottom line is, it was after the culmination of a lot of learnings in Washington with a couple of things that started to go right. A lot of things have started to go right. And then we get hit with the virus, vice versa, and Pence calls me a nasty to help figure it out. We were woefully undersupplied as a country, the stockpile was bare. And the right conclusion at the time was, I think, to lock down for two weeks and to slow the spread, we had a situation where it was going out of control. We didn't want to be like Italy. But after that, I think the consensus was that we had to start opening it up. I write in the book about several interactions between Doctor Fauci and president Trump, how Doctor Fauci is basically looking to keep things locked down and president Trump is saying to him, you know, look, I'm not going to preside over the funeral of the greatest economy in the history of the world. But it was tough because whenever we would push back on the doctors to try to open things up, they would accuse us of trying to kill people. And president Trump would say is that people are dying from either losing their jobs, they're depressed, they're overdosing on drugs, children are falling behind in school. We've got to get people back in school. And it was a real battle and I try to take people into what those battle lines were and in that story I was telling earlier, Doctor Fauci then backs off and says, look, I'm just here to give you medical advice. You know, your job is to consider all these other things. But I think he embraced the role of being a Trump antagonist. The media was always looking to build people up if they were counter to Trump. And again, I read a bunch about my interactions with Doctor Fauci, but I also write more importantly about the miracles that we pulled off on during the COVID virus, whether it was how we were able to save really the economy, whether it was how we ran testing or how we got the fastest vaccine in history done. And a lot of it was because we embraced certain good parts of bureaucracy. We got all bad parts of bureaucracy out of the way we brought in the private sector. Again, Trump was a businessman before and he brought in a lot of businessmen who was an outsider. He thought about getting results. And that was really what we did. So some of the work in COVID is some of the work that I'm most proud of because it really did save a lot of lives. And we just pulled off miracle after miracle to accomplish things that what we were initially passed with them were unsolvable. So Jared, the book, there's so many other pieces of the book we could cover here on just kind of navigating Washington, D.C., and I mean, COVID is a huge part of it..

"Obviously, president Trump and my team obviously working with secretary Pompeo, Robert O'Brien, David Friedman, ambassador occulta, ambassador Fisher. And everyone and you somehow taiba and just everyone coming together and at the right being in the right place, the right time. Trusting each other vascular derma working through a lot of complicated issues and then finding a way to make it happen and we kept it quiet. We kept it secret and it really shocked everybody and has just changed the world. And I'll just say one final thing. I'm sorry to give you such a long answer on this, but what it's done is the Abraham accords is opened up a channel now between Israel, the Arab countries, which allows Muslims to finally go and visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque and counter the narrative that's been used for 75 years that Israel is against them. And so what it's doing is it's lessening the tension against Israel and further isolating Iran and Hamas and Hezbollah and the groups that are basically looking for destruction. And the modern Middle East is about all these countries now saying our primary goal is to create security for our people and then give them economic opportunities that they can live better lives. So it's a real changing point in the Middle East, which is a changing point in the world. We think about the last decades, how much blood and treasure has been spent in the Middle East. And unfortunately, I think that that's in the past. But now the future is incredibly bright. And this is a major major turning point. And president Trump and his diplomacy in the Middle East changed the world. And so that was really one of the primary reasons I wrote the book was to document all this for history and give readers an inside account as to how it happened because I joke it happened on plan C but only because we went through the alphabet three times with different approaches that failed that we've had learned from in order for that to occur. Is there any fear you have Jared that this administration might reverse some of these gains? I mean, there's a pending nuclear deal with Iran potentially, do you have any fears that all the progress that you guys made could be upended? So initially I was very nervous, right? They were very young deals. We had 6 piece deals in the last 6 months. And then we had a lot more ready to go. I actually laid them out for the coming administration, how I would approach it. I think they were very close to getting a deal with Israel and Saudi. Instead they chose to go back to the old policy of running to Iran and getting on their knees and begging for a deal, which has been really counterproductive. And they wouldn't call the agreements by their name for the first year of the Abraham accords and then finally after a year they did. And then finally after a year and a half, they went to Saudi Arabia and recognized that they've been a partner of America for 8 years and a very strong ally and a country that they have to work with if they want to keep the region stable and keep oil prices globally Jack and so they're getting better in terms of what they're doing. I do hope they can embrace it any time and I think it would make a big difference. The good news is that they've endured despite that. I think they're doing quite well. I mean, every day you read about new business deals between the different countries or flights that are being opened, they see things on social media of Jews and Muslims coming together for dinner or prayers or celebrations. And so that's something that wouldn't have happened beforehand. So they're doing really well. And again, I really hope that they don't make another stupid deal with Iran, but what's happening now is you have a block of stability in the region that's come together because of the Abraham accords that I think would allow the region to work through even a bad deal, but I think it's just putting unnecessary pressure on the region that's just had two decades of bad luck and it's finally has a lot of wind at its back. I think they should focus on what works instead of going to a dozen work. Yeah, and I'm very worried about this potential ran deal..

"Will say Jared, I think, in the debates, president Trump, he didn't focus on the Abraham accords nearly enough. I just, that was my one personal piece of feedback. I remember saying that on our show and tweeting it out because there's Joe Biden rambling about how Donald Trump is going to bring us into a war or something. Wait a second, we just brokered peace against Israel with Israel and the UAE, just take some time, Jerry to talk first about the how politicians said how impossible this was. And then what was accomplished and how you got it done. I mean, from a layman's perspective of my own, it looks as if pressuring Iran and making a consensus against Iran played a role in that, but it's probably far deeper than that. Walk us through all that, please. Sure. Well, I think the big underlying lesson all this is you have to be very careful about trusting what the media says or what experts say, right? So all the experts in the media, first they were saying that if Donald Trump was elected, we'd be in World War three. And I really show in the book how he was very thoughtful and deliberate. A lot of high stakes situations that ultimately led to peace and no new wars in the first president in many years that in many decades that didn't bring new wars to the world. But the second thing was, is that the conventional thinking was said by John Kerry when he was leaving in 2016 where he said the plan to be very clear, there will be no peace between Israel and the Arab countries until we have peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians. And I actually accepted that to be true because how did I know? And I spent my first year really talking to people. And I trained the book to take people through my journey of listening. I think that was a very important component. I write about leading with meeting with one of the leaders in the Middle East where he said, you know, usually the U.S. sends one of three types of people to see the first are people who come and fall asleep in meetings. The second are people who come and basically read me talking points and have no ability to interact. And then the third are people who come and try to convince me to do things that aren't in my interest or my country's interests and you're the first person to come and really ask me questions on what I think the right end state should be and probing me on different ways to try to get there.

"Yeah, I certainly hope so you write in the book here on Trump's decision making style. Trump has a habit of seeking information and opinions from people whose views are often overlooked. As a builder, he would visit construction sites and ask the frontline workers for their input on serious design questions. Three rules of Trump, the first of many media crises taught me what I later called the three rules of Trump. Number one, controversy, elevates message. Number two, when you're right, fight and number three never apologize. Elaborate a little on that Jared. Yeah, so there's two different points there. And one of the reasons I wrote this book was because it was kind of man-made for me to see all these people become experts on Donald Trump, whereas I felt like the truth was always hiding in plain sight. And he is who he is. He's been the same person for he wouldn't like me to say his age, but for all those years. And he was the same guy who was on the TV shows, the same guy was building casinos, the same guy who was writing books. And the same guy that now the people who hate, you know, love just a decade before before he got into politics as a Republican. And so I really wanted people to see what it was like being with him in the broom, how he contemplated a lot of these decisions that ultimately achieved these results, right? Because there's two cross cards in my book, which are really represent the two crosscurrents of the four years under Trump, on the one hand, you had, I think, pretty unparalleled assaults, whether it was from the media, through special counsels, congressional investigations through impeachment. I write about all those the false Russia allegations after two years and $35 million turned out to be proven untrue and what it was like to personally accuse the treason and have people saying that things were going to go wrong and what it did to the work environment inside The White House. But at the same time, you had all these incredible policy successes, whether it was peace deals, how we worked very well with China, we worked very well with Russia and their complicated circumstances, what we did to strengthen the relationship with Israel, work in the Middle East, how we cut trade deals with Japan, South Korea, all these different instances. So he's a very, very successful president. He increased that metabolism of government. He was a businessman who wasn't a politician. So he was focused on results and sometimes the process got very messy to get there. And what I saw is, again, he was very experienced at dealing with the media wave board to be obviously. I mean, I now do a couple of interviews because I wrote a book. But I did very, very few during my time in government. It was more working behind the scenes helping him implement things and get things done. But what I saw with him during the campaign, which was very fascinating to me. And this is what I write during the 2016 campaign was that, you know, the controversy actually gave him a lot of free media. So he would say that Mexico is sending their worst people to America and the media would say, oh, what he's saying is we have to build a wall in the media and say, well, that's xenophobic. That's racist. And you know, they would think that the conversation stopped with them. But like I came to learn, American people are much smarter than the media believes. And so they'd be at their dinner table and they will keep leaving that guy Trump said. They'd say, well, you know, I think what he said is maybe he didn't say it right, but the way I would say it, but you know, illegal immigration is wrong. We should have people coming into the country illegally. And so it stipulated debate. And so, you know, he didn't back down when the media attacked him. And I think he was the first president I think in these era of what I'll call like the culture wars through the stand up and fight back to the media. And that just gave him more standing. And I think that's what the voters liked in him and they liked that he was a true outsider. He wasn't trying to conform to the Washington way or play by their rules. And it was very effective. So I want to make sure we have plenty of time to talk about the Middle East because that really was, in my opinion, the crowning accomplishment of your portfolio Jared. And I saw that from afar and I did go actually just coincidentally, I was there in Israel for the embassy moved to Jerusalem, which was just amazing. But this was the deal that we were told that could never be done. We were told that getting the Arabs and the Israelis together and to have some sort of a peace deal could never get done. President Trump used to joke about it and he used to say this is the impossible deal. And I will say Jared, I think, in the debates, president Trump, he didn't focus on the Abraham accords nearly enough. I just, that was my one personal piece of feedback. I remember saying that on our show and tweeting it out because there's Joe Biden rambling about how Donald Trump is going to bring us into a war or something.

But at the same time, you had all these incredible policy successes, whether it was peace deals, how we worked very well with China, we worked very well with Russia and their complicated circumstances, what we did to strengthen the relationship with Israel, work in the Middle East, how we cut trade deals with Japan, South Korea, all these different instances. So he's a very, very successful president. He increased that metabolism of government. He was a businessman who wasn't a politician. So he was focused on results and sometimes the process got very messy to get there. And

Jared Kushner: 'For President Trump, It's Very Frustrating to Watch'

"Just hearing you talk here, Jared, it just brings me back to feels like you're talking about 20 years ago. I mean, just that kind of tone of how you're talking and bringing back jobs to our country. It's so depressing to watch what's happening. I was going to ask you this question later, Jared, but I just would love it as it's kind of come to me now. I mean, you did all these success that your team Cassidy and president Trump and everyone, all this success, and just to kind of see what's happening now. I mean, what's your take on that? I mean, not talking about onshoring jobs and representing voters. It must be maddening to witness this over the last 18 months. You know, I think for president Trump, it's very, very frustrating to watch. You know, he did all this great work. He had the economy roaring and he had the world peaceful and he feels like it's such a shame. You know, the thing that I learned from being in Washington was I learned the nuance of a lot of these issues, right? There are a lot more complicated than people think. But after doing it for four years, fixing them was actually a lot easier than I would have thought four years earlier. So you look at all the deregulation we did to unleash American energy independence, right now we're going to Iran and Venezuela and begging them to pump more oil when, you know, if you have the Keystone pipeline, work, you'd have plenty of oil here in North America and stopped at the regulations. So I think that a lot of it's just common sense. I think the potential of our country is unbelievable. Maybe even greater than I thought global power is something that's more of a relative commodity than something that's absolute and America has the best private sector in the world. We have the best ingenuity. We have the best system for contracts and for rule of law, most of the time. And so our country is poised to really explode in a very positive way economically.

"jared kushner" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"Hey everybody, welcome to this exclusive and special episode of the Charlie Kirk show. We wanted to do this exclusively so we could have a long form conversation with someone who I got to know rather well over the last couple years and we worked on some things when he was in The White House and I saw firsthand how hard he worked on the America first agenda. And that is Jared Kushner, author of a new book breaking history, a White House memoir and Jared joins us right now. Jared, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thank you, Charlie. It's great to be with you and thank you for all the great work you did over the last years when we were fighting together on so many different things. So really great to be with you. Of course, we were in the trenches on a couple things, and I saw firsthand just a little bit of the pace and the pressure that kind of you had to deal with in The White House. So let's just kind of start there. You came from the private sector, you then came into The White House. Talk about just kind of the first couple of days, weeks and months in The White House, as someone who is used to kind of private sector behaviors and practices. Cutting into government, it's a completely different thing. Tell us about that. Yeah, so I write about this in the book and what I tried to do is bring people who everyone talks about Trump. They talk about the administration. They obsess about Washington and saying what they should do or shouldn't do, but what I tried to show people what it was like as somebody who was from the private sector and not from Washington going into that universe and just realizing what a bizarre world it was. And at first it was very disorienting in the sense that you come in every meeting. You have people telling you new regulations. You have to follow, you know, what are your protocols to do phone calls and it becomes a very procedure driven place. And so it becomes very easy to get bogged down by procedure and not get anything done. But we found our way through it. Again, president Trump, you know, he jokes that the first night he ever slept in Washington because he wasn't a mayor of governor senator. He slept in The White House. And so he had a team of people with him who were also outsiders to Washington, and we all came in and tried to figure out how to implement his agenda, which was contrary to a lot of the Republican orthodoxy that had been in place for some time. So it was really an exciting experience, but a lot of challenges were faced, but ultimately figured out a lot of incredible things with the help of people like yourself and many others who grew and learned with us. So let's start with kind of one of the things you worked on. And the portfolio of what you worked on is rather extraordinary, whether it be the Abraham accords, the trade talks of Mexico, China, the Israel, Palestine, peace plan, Nord stream two, Russia, and Germany, prison reform, the first Saudi Arabian trip, the move of the embassy to Jerusalem and many other things as well as the lockdowns in COVID and Fauci and all sorts of different things around that. Let's start though with we kind of mentioned kind of Republican orthodoxy. One of the things that Republican politicians said for years is you can't touch any of our trade deals with Canada or with Mexico specifically nafta. You were tasked with being the emissary of president Trump to renegotiate those trade deals, especially with Mexico and those deals almost fell apart actually. Tell us about what the mandate was from the voters to redo our trade deals. And especially with Mexico and what your administration with the administration was able to accomplish. Right. So again, it's very clear that politicians tell you a lot of things, but you have to look for the facts for yourself. So nafta was a deal that prospero famously said, you can hear that sucking sound. That's going to be all the manufacturing jobs leaving our country. And for whatever reason, that was the prevailing mindset at the time of the really driven by big business. And it worked, right? During the campaign president Trump was talking about how all the big car factories in North America were being built in Mexico and they were all being taken out of our country. And so that deal was one that died a million times. I think that's probably where maybe my inexperience came in handy because Obama and Bush both said they're going to renegotiate it and neither of them did because renegotiating the trade deal is an absolute brutal endeavor. And I think people through some of the some of the technicalities of it and some of the back and forths. But it really took president Trump threatening to get out of it and he was very, very close and several insist actually doing it. So it wasn't actually an empty thread that was able to help us achieve the breakthrough. And what it did is it brought about a 500,000 jobs back to America and stopped the flow of manufacturing jobs to other countries..

Jared Kushner on America's Weak New Approach to Iran

"Are you shocked by how quickly things have deteriorated in the region and how these people are obsessed with revivifying the Iran deal to empower the mullahs in Tehran. So I've been surprised and maybe I shouldn't be surprised right again, I've dealt with enough government negotiators that the way that they ran to Iran basically on their knees begging them to do a deal has just been really pathetic and quite frankly it's led to a much worse outcome than we would have achieved otherwise. So when we left office Iran was really on their last leg, we'd taken their oil down from about 2.6 million barrels a day to about a 100,000 barrels a day. They were at a foreign reserves. Their economy was cratering. And the advice we gave was just, you know, just ignore them, tell them, you know, doing a deal is not that popular. You know, just we've got to focus on climate change in China and COVID and on call us if you want to make a good deal instead they did the opposite. They ran there with weakness and the Iranians are phenomenal negotiators. They figured out Trump used to say that the Iranians have never won a war, but they've never lost a negotiation. And unfortunately, the way that they've been negotiating them has just been from a position of weakness. But I will say that the strength of the Abraham accords has been so impressive to me, maybe even beyond what I expected because it was such a young agreement that that nexus of strength that it's created is almost a counter to even the somewhat negligent or awful policy that the U.S. has brought to that region.

"Were a point person along with Jason greenblatt for the Abrahamic chords for trying to bring peace and stability to the region. And as somebody who's been working in national security for what 25, 30 years by then, I came to you and I said, hey, if you need, I know I've got a different portfolio, but I'm happy to try and help you and give you a couple of pointers. And you said, sure, okay, go and talk to Jason. And I went and spoke to Jason. And Jason said the following. I think was he a lawyer by training what Jason's back? Yeah. He's a lawyer. And I sat down with him, and I said, hey, look, I'm here if you need me. And he said the following said, thanks, Seb. But we are newbies, we need to go there and see for ourselves the ground truth and make our own judgment. And I thought, um, pretty impressive. I didn't want to say you will find out very rapidly. There's one party in these negotiations that isn't acting in good faith and it's not the Israelis. But you did the due diligence. You brought it to a fruition that is stunning because 23 years of Republican and Democrat presidents breaking that promise to Israel. I want people to get the book. You got to get the book breaking history. But talk to us about your experience in bringing those incredible deals to the table Jared. Thank you. And again, we appreciated the help at the time, but we were at a place at that point where we were doing a lot more listening than implementing our first year and again, I write about this a lot in the book was president Trump asked me to work on this file and I didn't know if he was hazing me at the time. Maybe he just felt like it couldn't get any worse, right? If you remember in 2016, ISIS had a caliphate the size of Ohio. They were the heading journalists. They were murdering Christians. You had Islamic extremism, rampant on the Internet. You had the pulse nightclub shooting, the San Bernardino shooting from people who were radicalized on the Internet, Syria, had a Civil War. Where there was 500,000 people dead. It was a nightmare, ran was flushed with cash on a glide path to a nuclear weapon. And all of our allies felt very betrayed. So president Trump really sent me in Jason out there and Avi to really just start listening and to try to understand and actually I write about a lot of my early interactions with the leaders in these countries where my number one question for them was America has a lot of power. If you were us, what would you do?

"We didn't work directly. However, I was placed on the trade policy council as an observer, and I watched you co chair it with Gary Cohen. And what was it? Every Tuesday morning, is that right? I remembering right? And I saw, I watched you there. I didn't throw my money in my voice into often, except when it was about China. But what I saw was a young, very intelligent man trying to make his father in law's administration and the America first vision a success. From the outside, you'd hear all these stories about, oh my gosh, there are subversives and camps and it's Steve versus Jared. Will you tell us the truth about what it was like inside The White House and how the misconceptions lasted this very day? So first of all, it was one of the most wild experiences you could ever have, especially in those early days. I think that when president Trump ran for office in 2016, there was an article in The New York Times, which I've now come to understand what that actually is worth, but it basically talked about how his trade policies were upending a hundred years of orthodoxy in terms of trade thinking. And when we got into power, it was one thing to say what president Trump said on the campaign, which is we need to stop our manufacturing jobs from going overseas. I want to see car plans starting to be built here in America, not in Mexico. I don't want to be hostage to China for all the different things that we are. And what he had as a people with a different set of experience. So we had on one end, Peter Navarro and on one end, Gary Cohn, and then we had in the middle. We had Wilbur Ross. We had bob lighthizer. We had myself and Steve Bannon. We were more trying to get the agreements, get people to come together to figure out what is a cohesive trade policy for an America first agenda looks like. And ultimately, bob lighthizer ended up emerging as the tip of the spear took him a while to get confirmed, I think Congress was very nervous that he actually was going to be able to do the things that Trump wanted to do. But once he took leadership of that, he really became a mentor of mine and somebody who really taught me a lot about not only why Trump's trade policy and instincts were correct, but also how do you implement them?

Sebastian Gorka Shares the One Time He Saw President Trump Angry

"Your host Sebastian walker from a strategist and deputy assistant to the 45th president of the United States and God willing. If we do our work the 47th as well, as I travel the country and give speeches on any topic to any community, sooner or later, I get the same question wherever I am, and the question is, what's he really like? And I tell people, what you see is what you get. He's not a Washington politician behind closed doors in the oval. He's exactly the same if there's just two of you as if he is in front of 60,000 people in a stadium. However, I will say, in my time in The White House, there was only one time I ever saw my erstwhile boss really, really angry. He is a man of good humor, but one day it was tested and it was the day of this press conference and the related calumny against him and his family, play cuts. Let me be very clear. I did not collude with Russia, nor do I know of anyone else in the campaign who did so. I had no improper contacts. I have not relied on Russian funds for my businesses. And I have been fully transparent in providing all requested information. Donald Trump had a better message and ran a smarter campaign and that is why he won. Yes, it is indeed why he won. Why was president Trump very angry? Because his son in law had to make that statement in front, I was in the oval as that was being made. And it was all part and parcel of the smear tactics of not just the four years of his presidency, but continuing to this very day.

Jared Kushner Joins Hugh for an In-Depth Interview About His Memoir of the 2016 Campaign and President Trumps White House - Burst 06

"Let's talk, extend the football analogy. Sometimes you have turnover artists. Sometimes you have bad coaches that don't relate signal. I noticed the reference to Margaret Peter Lennon here, and that's two inside baseball for the radio. But I do want to talk about Navarro and Bannon. I've known Peter naru for 30 years. When he ran for mayor as a no growth mayor in San Diego, when he ran unsuccessfully for Congress with Hillary Clinton at his side when he ran for supervisor. Peter is charismatic and fun to be around. I went to a Crosby still national young concert with him once. But he is completely mercurial and off the reservation often. Why in the world did you recruit him? It's a funny story. So one of the things I did on the campaign was Trump called me and says, I want you to write a speech for me for apac. And I go through this in the book. And I wrote a big policy speech for him. It was a policy I understood. And I convinced him to use a teleprompter for the first time, which he was resisted to. We called the story in the book. It's really funny. But you said, look, I used to make fun of the politicians who used teleprompters. And I just do this. If you don't like it, you'll never have to see one again. And he goes and he used it and the speech was incredible at AIPAC. He says to me after I want you to build a speech writing team. So Stephen Miller was on the campaign as I called Steve and I said, look, can we start developing a policy and a speech writing team? And he says, Jared, this is like the first thing I've heard on this campaign that makes any sense. Like that should have been done 6 months ago. But let's do it. So we started putting it together. And I was looking for people who can give me more nuance on Trump's what he was saying about China. So I found Peter's book death by China, which seemed like a title that was in line with what Trump was saying. So I researched him. I was a little nervous because I think he was a Democrat. If you would call me and we got on the phone, I said, hi, I work with president with candidate Trump. And I said, what are your thoughts on him? Because I didn't want to open it up to myself. I love what he's talking about. He's the first politician saying it. And I said, do you want to be on our economic advisory council? And he says, well, who else is on it? And I said, well, I really can't disclose names. Trump's a little controversial now. I don't want to be out there. There's going to be a secret advisory pal. Spears is absolutely all right stuff for you. I'll give you advice. I'll send you stuff. He was the only person on it. I was on it at the time. And so Peter started advising the campaign sent us some very good advice. And then when it came into time and The White House, we ended up putting him in a trade position. And again, he was a very useful voice throughout the time. He definitely played hard. I think he was a little bit paranoid that when Trump wasn't deciding his way that there was some grand conspiracy or people were stewing it up. But I felt like we had a policy on trade that was very revolutionary from a Republican orthodoxy,

The Man Who Got Away From the White House

"Let me drill down on this because the Abraham accords matters so much to history. You're a constant in the president of the constant in this. Yousef doesn't change TV doesn't change NBC doesn't change. But what changes is Pompeo replaces Tillerson. I don't know Tillerson, so I won't talk about it. I know Mike very well. But ambassador O'Brien replaces ambassador Bolton. How does that matter? And I mean, you're pushing for the same thing for four years. You start with the embassy, you end up with the Abraham accords and even after the Abraham accords the F-35s, the Western Sahara, the Sudan issues, you just followed it through Phoebe is a constant. The only two things that change are at the 7th floor of state and at the west wing office that everybody sees in every shot O'Brien for Bolton. Why do those two matter and you're constancy matter? I think that that mattered in that when they both came in, it took Trump a while again. I always say that the first night he slept in Washington. He slept in The White House, right? So he wasn't a mayor. He wasn't a governor. He wasn't a senator. And so it took him a while to find the right people who understood what he was trying to accomplish and who were competent and enabling for him to do that. So I write about Mike coming in and replacing Tillerson and how I went to Mike and said, look, there's only one Secretary of State you're the Secretary of State. I'm working on this file. I'm making progress. Do you want me to go off the file? And Mike says, no, no, no, no, you're doing great with it. Just keep running. Anything you need I'll be available and actually write something about how with Tillerson, it was impossible to get him. You want to get him on the phone. It would take three, four days, and then a conversation would last 30 minutes, and you wouldn't really accomplish much because it would be mostly either less during you or complaining about stuff. With Mike, a conversation would take under three minutes. He was very to the point, very decisive. And I would say by definition, he could do ten times more diplomacy. And that's also why he was always so available and reachable and really a great Secretary of State. With

"As we've been telling you this morning the January 6th committee investigating the capitol riot goes prime time with the first session last night Thursday night For more we turn to Washington Post senior news anchor Libby Casey The lengths that the chair and the vice chair are trying to make between Donald Trump his actions and inaction leading up to the attack on January 6th what he did that day That's one part of it The second part though is that incredibly devastating testimony by this officer Caroline Edwards who was one of the first if not the first officers injured that day And we saw actual footage of her being shoved over a bike rack all standing between her and these attackers as they shoved her to the ground gave her a concussion And then she talked about when she finally came to getting back in the fray and trying to help her fellow officers as they battled in what she described as hand to hand combat for hours and officer Edwards said it was like something she had seen out of the movies She was slipping on the blood of people She was seeing friends with blood all over their faces And she describes seeing officer sicknick a man who later died of suffering two strokes after the attack of seeing him just pale and white in the face And it sent off she's described it as her cop sense said he is not well And what the committee is trying to do is show the physical emotional and real harm to these people as well as to democracy What about some of the videos they played of people connected directly to former president Trump and his administration some of the things that we hadn't seen before Yeah we saw Ivanka Trump and we saw Jared Kushner and what Ivanka Trump said in a brief clip that they played of her speaking to the committee was that when Bill Barr then attorney general back in 2020 said there's no evidence of election fraud You didn't win the election that she believed him She found that trustworthy The other footage we saw that was startling was seeing Jared Kushner essentially dismiss the threats that the Trump administration was getting from top lawyers that they were going to resign because Trump would not let it rest His allegations that the election had been stolen his continued lies about it Jared Kushner dismissed it as whining when those attorneys kept threatening to resign in the weeks leading up to January 6th So we're seeing the committee try to build a pattern of what Donald Trump was doing as his own advisers in his own team were saying you did not win and no uncertain terms that he kept pushing forward anyway to perpetuate this lie that the election had been stolen from him And in our last 30 seconds how do you think this is going to be perceived by the public Do you think any minds are going to be changed or it's just going to send people into their respective corners on this Michelle we'll see I mean at the same time tonight you saw the loved ones of officers who died in the aftermath of that attack at the hearing weeping sobbing trying to process all of this You also saw some of the Republicans in the House trying to dismiss the whole thing as a sideshow act So we will see who the American public listens to The committee has the goal of laying out in detail over the next series of committees over this month of how they believe Donald Trump was a part of this how he perpetuated lies that led to the attack and they're going.

"I will not give all the details away to listener. But things you wouldn't expect like the word avocado or kickstarter really central in your in your tormentors. Twisted twisted mindset in ways. that are just. I don't know it would drive me insane. You're stronger than i am. Because i would live in those dark rabbit holes. Look i think you know. The pool is very strong to go to those places but when you realize that That's not getting anywhere that you're better off trying to maintain a sense of equilibrium. One way to do that is if you can laugh at ship. Yeah yeah And so while you're in in present there's this government effort to try to negotiate your release At the same time there are ongoing negotiations over. You know what will eventually become the jcp away or the iran nuclear agreement. What's amazing in this podcast. Is you interviewed all these people about the process of negotiating release negotiating the jcp away and talk to them. During the trump administration when they were out of government when they were willing to let their hair down in speak freely and not be like the talking point robots that we all turned into when we go back in and now a bunch of them. John kerry john finer. The deputy national security adviser are back in government. Like what are what are people going to hear from those individuals that might surprise them. Look i mean. I think it we. We always think of people in government has superhuman or sub-human but definitely not you but I think when when when you hear these people you're gonna realize that they are in so many ways dealing with issues in the same ways that anybody else They're just people tasked with a job. A huge job And i think that that the the sort of impossible challenge of weighing Massive geopolitical issues against the concerns of a single family is something the government has to deal with all the time They're not necessarily always really graceful about it publicly or privately. But i think we really see into that here and for me. I've had the opportunity over the last five years to get to know a lot of of these people And also people in the trump administration specifically around the the issue of of hostage taking hostage recovery stis level of trust intimacy that i've been able to to to build up what these folks But as you say you know they can't really let their hair down right now. They have a lot of other things to deal with. I'm of the eight or nine high level officials That we we interviewed for the show Ben would probably be only one. That would be willing to talk to me right now. Right for this. And i know that because i continue to report on hostage cases And i can't get any of these folks on record at this point so you know that's no knock on them that's kind of the the the the nature Of how things work here in washington. But i would say there's a level of intimacy to this show that you almost never get when you put somebody in government alongside with somebody who who who was affected by the policies that they're tasked with implementing. Yeah i mean sometimes you get town halls with presidential candidates where they're talking directly to someone who's been impacted by war or taxes or you know healthcare policy. Whatever it's so rare to hear you. Who was taken by the iranians talking to ben rhodes or john kerry or brett mcgurk about the decisions. They literally made involving you your released from prison i mean. I don't know that i've ever heard that anywhere else. I don't think i have a. I'm sure that there are fictionalized tales. like you know on film or in in in literature but to me that's the thing that jumps out to my year Because look i was incredibly lucky. Not everybody has the kind of advocates. That that i did and that starts with a family in your employer and you know between my my big brother and the washington post They were able to get themselves into the west wing multiple times and you know As much as they became a thorn in the side of some of these people is also kind of a respect level. that was That was built up over time. And i think that that really comes through in the show. It's five years. After the fact that. I'm talking to these people and you know folks like wendy sherman and ben And john finer have very distinct memories of dealing with my brother. That's pretty cool. As far as i'm concerned all government dorks in the show. Your wife yet. Years is interviewed a lot in his hilarious. Your mom your brother. also anthony. Bourdain has a big Can you tell people how anthony bourdain became part of the story because you know for me listening trailer and hearing his voice again. Someone who. I followed and listened to and revered in some ways it was it was jarring and also so wonderful to like here. The guy's voice again so when when when we were arrested in two thousand fourteen six weeks earlier we had been asked to appear on parts unknown when he was in tehran. We spend an afternoon with them and it was. It was really lovely experience all the way around and then when we were were arrested. Invariably someone's gonna start thinking Must add something to do with you. Know with being on that show right. There's a lot of people thought it had something to do with them. It didn't have a with any anybody. But but we're dane with somebody who really from the gecko was full-throated in his advocacy for for our release. And that never stopped. It kept going in a couple of weeks after we got out. We had the opportunity to to meet up with him in new york. We had a a meal and some beers and had talked a lot in dangerous yongin. I incredible life advice and from that moment until Until he died he he was somebody who was very much in our corner. Very supportive of us in ultimately when i proposed a memoir Wrote up the proposal. We took it to publishers We you know we had sort of one of these. Many bidding wars where half a dozen different publishers wanted to publish the book he reached out to me and said hey jason you know whether you choose me or not. Just give it some consideration at like two to publish your book on com on my imprint. It's such an important story to me. And i want you to tell it how you wanna tell it by the way you know. He ended up a bumping up. See the the fee that he was willing to pay the book advance above and beyond any other publisher just to see her deal. So just like you know when when we made the decision yagi really new kind of looked me in the is like. Were you ever even considering doing this with anybody else. In the answer was no right. I mean this guy a believed in us and we believe in him. So that's how that happened and as part of Reporting out my story for the book. I spend an afternoon with His condo in in manhattan We had some beers in turn on the microphone. And and just kind of record a conversation than i think you know magically it relieved fits into the story that we're telling here yeah i mean it's weird to miss someone i've never met but i do You know you mentioned in the course of your work in the washington. Post you report on a lot of these. These hostage takings. Unfortunately hostage-taking is far too common in foreign policy and foreign affairs terrorist. Groups take hostages. Iran is taken countless hostages. We think some listeners of the show might say to me. Hey tommy You could argue that. Some gitmo detainees. Were were our hostages and they would have some point There's also troubling rise in journalists being held hostage one example is a man named any fencer. Who's in american journalist. Who's currently being held in. Myanmar has been imprisoned wrongly. Since may what do you think the best way me based on all your reporting for the us government to deal with these cases. What did the obama administration get wrong in your case that the biden folks hopefully can fix and get right so i think the first thing that administrations often get wrong is not calling it but it is when we call something arbitrary detention or a wrongful detention. I understand the the motivation for doing that. It is essentially to say that. We acknowledged hovering of this other country in the independence of their judiciary.

"So excited to welcome back to the pod. Jason resigned jason. So good siegen. Tommy is great to be here. You know talking to you from my Basement bunker might my little eleven month. Old is screaming somewhere upstairs and and where we are you know again. After after after longtime a lot has changed a lot feels the same I'm in place So we're here to talk about your incredible new podcast. Five hundred forty four days It is hosted by you. It is written by you and produced by gimblett crooked media a twenty four so Some decent Oppression companies there. It's the story of the five hundred forty four days you spent in the notorious hellish evan prison in iran after they wrongly accused of being an american spy. You're white eddie. Was also taken prisoner stories about your attention. The nasa effort by the government. Your family your colleagues at the washington. Post to get you out. Oh and by the way. Brock obama was cutting a nuclear deal with iran at the same time so not at all complicated. Not a lot of moving pieces there So just for listeners. Who might not be familiar with your story. Can we start with the basics of why the iranians arrested you in the first place. Yeah so i. I was the tehran bureau chief for the washington post in the summer of two thousand fourteen. I've been living in tehran. Since two thousand nine working as a as a reporter for international media freelancing really for for several years until i was hired by the post in two thousand twelve and at that time when i was hired. I really thought that this relationship with one of the the maiden newspapers of the world the paper of record of the us capital thought that gave me some cover made some active cover an as the nuclear negotiations started heating up in two thousand thirteen. Two thousand fourteen one thing that nobody really factored in was that there were actors within the iranian regime. That did not wanna see Any kind of between iran in the western iran in the us specifically. So when i was taken in july of two thousand fourteen. It was right at the height of those negotiations The timeframe for coming to a deal. The deadline had been extended by several months. And i think anybody who was following closely believed that The deal was kind of a fatal complete. I mean it was going to happen one way or the other and as you know From being here in washington at that time there were a lot of opponents in us against diplomacy with iran in that deal in particular inside iran. They were opponents. As well and the main opponent was the revolutionary guard in agents of their intelligence wing Rated my home And abducted my wife and i Very subtly without any kind of warning and took us to evan prison where we really had no idea what we were being accused of them. And they said okay. You're a spy They put us in interrogation rooms for weeks on end. And during that time they asked us all Manner of questions which showed very clearly. They had absolutely no evidence that we were doing anything wrong. Know just border working with with state permission in that country Who was was kind of rounded up as as Yeah i mean you're very clear when you talk about the experience. I mean being put in solitary confinement for that long being interrogated on those under those conditions. It is torture but what is surprising about this show in this podcast. Like just you generally is how funny. The show is You your wife your mom your brother you are all able to somehow look back and laugh at experience you guys make fun of your tormentors. Is that something you figure out how to do after the fact or did you keep your sense of humor in prison. That's me right. I mean you know. That's how i've walked through life so far I've tried to look at the lighter side of every situation. I've ever been subjected to you. My my dad who Who died Ten years ago he used to say i. If you worry you're gonna die and if you don't worry you're gonna die. So don't worry and i've tried to kind of incorporate that mantra into as many moments in my life as i could. Obviously this was a very extreme one right And i had no way of knowing if when i would get out but i had to assume that i was going to survive this thing somehow and You you get to a certain point after several days when you realize okay. I'm going to be a friend to myself or am. I going to be my enemy because i'm in salt if i'm during anybody else around right so you look for things to laugh at you know you look for a memories you plan for the future conversations you had and you can very easily go down very dangerous mental rabbit holes if you let yourself I chose not to let myself and part of that. A big part of that was finding things to laugh at and as my my world in prison opened up a little bit. More interactions with my interrogator and getting to know my guards And then after time having a cellmate I just found endless things to to poke fun at because ultimately this was really the most absurd thing that had ever happened to me. And i really wanted to pull out that absurdity in retailing. This story yeah. He's a traumatic. Do i still have you know. Emotional and psychological scars. Fuck yes am. I gonna let that stop me from laughing at it a better. Not 'cause then. I'm really screwed. I mean there's some of the details incredible..

"Who was like press secretary for like a year or two or right. I mean be as saying. You're the press secretary without briefing is like saying you're a teacher. You've never stepped foot in the classroom to what you do Anyway so the book is an anecdote about foreign policy that thought again with so the first is about russia and trump putin so quote with all the talk of sanctions against russia for interfering in the two thousand sixteen election for various human rights abuses. Trump told putin okay. I'm going to act a little tougher with you for a few minutes. But it's for the cameras and after they leave we'll talk you understand. Grisham writes recalling meeting between the two leaders during the group of twenty summit in osaka in twenty nineteen so basically trump saying. Hey man i'm that's tough. It's just for the press but wait like my reaction to that was like i don't recall him sounding tough like that's a good point. That's if if if the delta was like this is me being really tough and then what happens in closed doors as me cozying up to. You're like man. He must have been closing up in private. Because i don't really remember a tough message at the asaka g. twenty you know. Ironically point trump team who are pushing back hard on this book. Because you're right that makes no sense. Here's the second russia anecdote so quote as the meeting began. Fiona hill leaned over and asked me. If i'd noticed putin's translator who's a very attractive brunette woman with long hair a pretty face and a wonderful figure grisham writes. She proceeded to tell me that she suspected the woman had been selected by putin specifically to distract our president. Now that checks out. That one hundred percent checks out. And i will say that. I was in a bunch of meetings with putin and nobody who fit that description. Let's just say was Translating young with like stern russian men some way clear x. k. cagey. Yeah yes exactly Grisham says that a trip to north korea inspired mr trump to ask her to research ways the press could be permanently evicted from the james as breeding briefing room. That's kind of funny. Yeah this is kind of funny. I mean surprising in the slightest dotted all. This is my favorite ben Miss grisham reserve special. Ir for jared kushner whom she calls. Rasputin in a slim fitting suit. That's a very i mean. Look i'm just gonna. I'll give this one entirely over to to miss grisham. That's a very apt description of jared. Does that the slim-fitting suit somehow contributed to the rasputin. 'cause he was like that. You know wealthy son of a real estate developer guy who like thinks he's cool 'cause he gets a slim cut suit or something you know like. Give me a break. Jared with that. I mean like you're not like you. You are what you are. Which is someone who's like basically had a checkbook behind your life and now you're like utilizing your position of power and influence to service. Your your own personal ends like good description that so i don't know a ton about rasputin. I guess he was of like a russian mystic and he sort of advised czars but Apparently his scandal wikipedia so depressed. I i'm actually done some deep dives on recipes. So like did he help. Discredit the czarist government. And when he was died led to the romanoff. Yes sir basically he like can use this kind of mystic guy. Conman drifter right so he was drifter was all bound real estate. We're not real resolve that like advancing the new york observer exactly And he liked could comfort the the czar arenas child was like a hemophiliac comfort him and and that may gave his influence is principally with the tzars wife And this was the source of building resentment around the the royal family and and petersburg and and yet like they killed the skies kind of like one of the early acts of what became the russian. But but what he has in common with jarrett is did not wear slimfast suits understand but he was entirely like griffin power behind the throne of guy. You know. I love it all right okay. So maybe maybe that was a point gresham and shot up by the way to Fellow podcast mike. Dunkin's revolutions podcasts. Which is why recently immersed in recipes. I'll check that out also great Show who called the great which is about you know what that's right. That's a good show all those funniest one of like shows you on your like. Oh i'm gonna watch this period drama and like there's just orgies punchy real there's real fast is like a lot not expect. I didn't want to watch with my parents. I watched the crown of my parents.

"I still think on balance like people that are rockets qatar. To be you know before Gaza wars and and and you know we have a capacity to help them shoot rockets down. That would kill civilians like that. That seems like the better use of our military i. I'm pro iron dome Couple more things alternativefacts going along so this story about burma are are caught. My ben so a federal judge ordered facebook to release records of facebook accounts connected to anti ryan j violence in in burma. Facebook fought the release saying it violated privacy law. The judge basically laughed at them and that argument. Like oh you guys in privacy got enough so the rangers are a muslim minority group in burma back in two thousand seventeen more than seven hundred. Thirty thousand of them were driven out of mar into bangladesh. There were widespread reports of war crimes and atrocities against their injured by the military. There's an effort underway to prosecute myanmar at the international court of at the hague under the nineteen forty eight convention on genocide. Un human rights. Investigators say facebook played a key role in spreading hate speech that cemented the violence against More broadly you know the military coup in i keep saying them interchangeably burma. Yeah me our our More broadly this military coup is ongoing. You know the crackdown against Regular people is ongoing after. I think eight months the u. n. High commissioner for human rights estimates. That eleven hundred protesters have been killed but the united nations just can't do anything about it. They're paralyzed because russia. And china sell the burmese military bunch of weapons and they block any meaningful action security council so basically wanted to bring the story up. We haven't talked about in a while Vent about facebook for a minute because you know. They are also being accused of allowing incitement on their platform in ethiopia. Yeah wall blocking release of evidence about that. Same kind of deadly rhetoric and behavior in burma. And it's infuriating. So if you wanna dip in the back catalogue The episode four of missing america My pockets of you guys is all about disinformation and hate campaigns in and burma And it was central. I mean basically like there was a massive effort to gin up. Hate of the ranger to kind of conspiracy theories there's fake news about ranjha. Men raping buddhists women things that kind of whip the population of this frenzy. At the same time there's ethnic cleansing happened and facebook. Did nothing really very little to curb this. And when i travelled to myanmar to work on a story. I was writing for the atlantic like that. Facebook had no employees in the country barely. Yeah they had to people who are in in. I think singapore that came like once or twice a year mainly to make sure that the government let facebook be. They're like they're just didn't seem to care. You know that this is happening And to me like the long portend here is like is liability that like essentially. This is an important step towards trying to set a precedent that facebook has some responsibility. And and i think with government regulation. It should be legal responsibility for things like whether or not like an ethnic cleansing campaign is being orchestrated on platform. And i think that you know. The times did a good investigation. That identified that the burmese military was behind A lot of this hate campaign so so yeah it's a positive step forward released. The documents Another update because i'm basically had questions about this subject for you so The washington post reported that the cia recalled its vienna station chief because of inattention cases of so-called havana syndrome syndrome is this mysterious. Illness seems to manifest as headaches nausea like traumatic brain injury in his reportedly afflicted Around two hundred. Us intelligence officers diplomats or other serving abroad. Congress now authorized money for treatment Tony blinken the secretary of state reportedly net with a bunch of department officials who have been suffering from the disease Their reports staffer traveled with. Ci director bill burns a trip to india. Came down with symptoms. That was weird David cohen the cia is deputy director. Said the agency's getting closer to figuring out what's happening but not close enough yet to make a judgment or a public judgement so scarce stuff it is a and it's important checking in because this keeps popping up and i like look they need to You know what. I hope they're doing is like that. There's a clear someone is in charge of this because it kind of felt like definitely the trump years and in the beginning of biden khazar. Just getting their offices like didn't feel like someone own vis in a clear way in the us government like And i think it does. As i've said the we need some answers here like this is a weird thing that just going to be a part of the backdrop. Yeah yeah frequent workout and tell us what you know. And don't know you know i. 'cause i the workforce of these places worried i mean. I talked to diplomats. I talked intelligence. People like people are worried and they they they want some some additional information or some degree of assurance. Yeah they wanna feel listen to and yeah treated like they're you know. These are just symptoms manifesting of stress. I mean look these. Those kinds of things have happened before but so many people are suffering from this syndrome. Now that its own talk you know. Some cases are probably are that you know someone had something else. They had food poisoning but clearly some of these cases are because of something that is being done to just the scale of this suggests that yeah another issue we talk about a couple of times. Is this growing spyware spy software for profit industry so the industry leader is a company called the group good for them. Industry leader Grit yelp reviews. It was started by a bunch of former israeli intelligence people. They claim the softwares used attract bad. Guys that is bullshit. The pegasus spy software that they created keep showing up on devices used by journalists and human rights activists. The story that we wanted to highlight is a woman named ala. Al seek This is according to a great report in the guardian so so she was the executive director of aol. It's a nonprofit. Advocating for human rights in the us in the middle east tragically died in a car accident. June but a recent examination of her phone found that she had been hacked by the government. A government client of the nfl group back in twenty fifteen. So then i know you flag the story you know. Maybe this will come up. And jake sullivan's trip to the is i would hope out. I mean constantly. I because if you if you read the story to like what it speaks to is that she felt like shoes beings prevail and she was and kind of you know paranoid with good reason and some of her friends suggested that that might have contributed her due to what happened to her And look it's a reminder that like the the the the yelp reviews you know would be like five stars via or bonn. Muhammed bin salman nbc. You know ziad like the. Ua puts on a huge. You know show to the west. About how much more kind of modern and and in some ways liberal they are And you know if you travel through abu dhabi that's what you experience but this is a reminder that there's a very dark autocratic undercurrent even harassing female human rights activists outside the country london and and i think any analysis of stuff like pegasus. And so there's a lot of traffic runs through saudi uae. And so to me the stores where flagging both to honor the courage of of activists from those places but also to kind of be the reminder that like there's a nexus here of you know That runs through the gulf in hungary russia. You know the the that is is uncomfortable because it's it's not far away. This is happening in london. It's happening in washington. I'm sure you know it's happening on our country's yeah yeah. Mohammed gave pegasus bone sauce. So let's end with a little more Trump book news. It's given us so much lately bent so the latest book is from stephanie grisham. She worked on the trump campaign than she was milanez. Press person then she was the first white house press secretary in history who never held a white house briefing when they said this book was coming up by the way i didn't remember who she was and it's pretty extraordinary that i forgot the name of someone.

"So this morning. Michael cohen is back in the news. Tweeting about jared kushner folks and this is the same jared kushner who as we know is the son-in-law to donald trump his net worth is about eight hundred million dollars he just recently purchased this twenty four million dollar fixer upper in miami beach. And this is the same. Jared kushner that according to michael benders new book called. Frankly jarod told. Rnc chair ronna mcdaniel. He didn't give enough about the republican party. I don't give an f about the republican party. He said and he reportedly said this in the lobby of the trump international hotel in washington. Dc while having a tense exchange with rnc chair ronna mcdaniel in after. He said that she blacked out. Good to know good to know. I'll be ranked for chair a second term. And i'll make sure you don't come anywhere near any of this. So michael cohen. Here's his tweet that he's tweeted out earlier. Today about jared kushner and it goes like this interesting. How jared kushner's name appears to be absent from all the controversy. Edite -ment arrest. Is he next to fall or cooperating witness knowing what a sneaky is. I bet the ladder now. What makes his theory. Interesting is the fact that like i mentioned. He's got a lot to lose the kushner's do and ivanko and the indictment against weisselberg that was just issued it twice listed in unnamed co-conspirator which has led to speculation like this that it may be jared kushner. And he's he's just in a position to cooperate. Here folks have listen to this. This is something that michael cohen also said back in june. Here's a video. That i want you to listen to the problem with everybody. In the trump organization is that they all lie and they will continue as i did include with congress. We all lied. In order to protect donald. The problem though is that there were documents. That show opposites that. I wasn't the only one that line in the creation that document it was ivanka. And jared the lawyers and secular and cobb. And you name it. I the law. All of them were involved in the established in the setting up of that Of that information to con- jeez okay folks. I mean if jared did have a hand in this. I in speculation. I get that if this is true. I mean obviously lying to congress would be leverage to make jared kushner cooperate today with the prosecutors. I mean that's that's a hell of a serious claim. I mean lying to congress is not something that is taken lightly and extremely problem. Problematic for jared kushner if if this is true and with all of this i just can't help but think that with all of this is coming out you know if if he is cooperating with prosecutors All of this information that's coming out. I mean can you really imagine donald trump running for office in two thousand twenty four with all of this coming out in continuing to come out. I mean it It could be if he does continue to run. And the republicans are not smart enough to push him off the dock at that stage and not get him on the the twenty twenty four presidential boat. I mean it could be a washout for them now. The first test of that obviously is going to be in twenty twenty two when we've got the midterm elections. So let's see where this ends up. I made that turns out to be a wash for republicans in very well could be. I mean that does not bode well for donald trump running in twenty twenty four till then folks. Thanks for tuning in..

"Hartman program. My books at any time Harvard Book Club is Michael Lewis's new book, The Fifth Risk. And this is from the prologue. Which is titled Lost in Transition, Chris Christie noticed a piece in The New York Times. That's how it all started. The New Jersey governor had dropped out of the presidential race in February, 2016 and thrown what support he had. Behind Donald Trump. In late April, he saw the article. It described meetings between representatives of the remaining candidates still in the race. Trump, John Casey, Ted Cruz, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. And the Obama White House. Anybody who's still had any kind of shot at becoming president of the United States apparently needed to start preparing to run the federal government. The guy Trump sent to the meeting was in Christie's estimations, comically Underqualified. Christy called up Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, to ask why this critical job hadn't been had handed to someone who actually knew something about government. Lewandowski said. We don't have anyone. Christie volunteered himself for the job head of the Donald Trump presidential transition team. It's the next best thing to being president. He told friends. You get to plan the presidency. You went to see Trump about it. Trump didn't want a said he didn't want a presidential transition team. Why did anyone need to plan anything before he actually became president? It's legally required, said Christie. Trump Asked where the money was going to come from to pay for the transition team. Christie explained that Trump could either paid it for himself for taking on a campaign funds. Jump didn't want to pay for it himself, and he didn't want to take it out of campaign funds, either. But he agreed grudgingly. Christie could go ahead and raise a separate fund to pay for his transition team, but not too much, she said. And so Christie set out to prepare for the unlikely event that Donald Trump would one day be elected president of the United States. Not everyone in Trump's campaign was happy to see him on the job. In June, Christy received a note from Trump Advisor Paul Manafort. Kid is paranoid about your Manafort said The kid was Jared Kushner, Trump's son in law Back in 2005 when he was U. S attorney for the District of Nature of New Jersey, Christie had prosecuted and jailed Kushner's father, Charles for tax fraud. Christy's investigation revealed in the bargain that Charles Kushner had hired a prostitute to seduce his own brother in law, whom he suspected of cooperating with Christy and videotape the sexual encounter and sent the tape to his sister. Questions apparently took their grudges seriously and Christy sense the Jared still harbored one against him. The other hand, Trump from Christie, considered almost a friend couldn't have cared less. He'd invited Kristi to his in Melania's wedding, and he pressed him to attend it. His daughter Ivanka and Jared Kushner's wedding. The awkward, said Christie. I'm paying for the wedding and I don't give a NASA said Donald Christie view. Jared is one of those people who thinks that because he's rich, he must also be smart. Still, he had a certain cunning about him. Christie soon found himself reporting everything he did to prepare for a Trump administration to an executive committee. Committee consistent of Jared Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr. Eric Trump, Paul Manafort, Steve Mnuchin and Jeff Sessions. I'm kind of like the church Elder, who double counts the collection plate every Sunday for the pastor, said sessions who appeared uncomfortable with the entire situation. The elders job became more complicated. In July 2016. When Trump was formerly named the Republican nominee. The transition team now moved into an office in downtown Washington, D C and went looking for people to occupy the top 500 jobs in the federal government. They needed to fill all of the cabinet positions, of course, but also a whole bunch of others that no one in the Trump campaign even knew existed. It's not obvious how you how you find the next secretary of state, much less the next secretary transformation importation, Never mind who should sit on the board of trustees in the very Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation. By August, 130 people were showing up every day and hundreds more working part time at Trump transition headquarters of the quarter corner of 17th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. Transition team made list of likely candidates for all 500 jobs, plus other lists of informed people to roll into the various federal agencies the day after the election to be briefed on whatever the federal agencies were doing. Gather the names for these lists by traveling the country and talking to people Republicans who had served in government Trump's closest advisers, recent occupants of the jobs that needed filling Then they set about investigating any candidates for glaring flaws, embarrassing secrets and conflicts of interest. At the end of each week, Christy handed over binders with lists of names of people who might do the job well to Jared and Donald and Eric and the others. They probed everything, says a senior trump transition. Official. Who is this person where this person come from? They only ever rejected one person. Paul Manafort, secretary the first time Donald Trump paid attention any of this was when he read about it in the newspaper. The story revealed that Trump's very own transition team led by New Jersey governor Chris Christie. Raise several million dollars to pay for its own staff. The moment he saw its Trump called Steve Bannon, the chief executive of his campaign from his office on the 26th floor of Trump Tower and told her to come immediately to his residents, many floors above Van and stepped off the elevator to find the governor of New Jersey seated on a sofa being hollered at Trump was at hope. Lactic actually yelling. You're stealing my money! You're stealing my effing money! What the F is this? Seeing Bannon Trump turned on him and screamed. Why are you letting him steal my effing money? Bannen and Christy together, set out to explain to trump Federal law. Months continues.
