S. and whether or not they expose their population intentionally which that expose the world to the virus intentionally is a big question that has to be answered but but also if if they were trying to show the U. S. how great they were let me tell you right away if they did not intentionally released the virus to that that the general public in China and then to the world they were not very good at creating the virus in the lab they were not good at handling it inside the lab and we are still very much superior I believe I had to try to take a listen to secretary of state public we know that this virus originated in Wuhan China we know that there is the one institute of art all the virology just a handful of miles away from where the market was either still lots to learn you should know that the United States government is working diligently.

"So what there's two committees in another incident outside of there's there's two committees they want Nancy Pelosi wants one that would have to be voted on by the house by the way they have to approve the select committee shorts it led by Jim Clyburn whose way indoors Joe Biden so he's directly involved wasn't a climber who said that you take advantage of a moment like this yep and this way you can get things you want to reshape the concept of a pandemic is quote gives the Democrats called a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision this committee would overlook how the spending was done because they've got some concerns about the corporate side of this meeting which is actually the smaller side of this the studio said we talk about the big corporations and then Adam Schiff wants a second committee of course focusing on the intelligence side that would mean him right to look at this when the pandemic is over as I said because I think most of believe president trump still will get reelected and they will like to they would like to try and figure out a way to impeach him again keep about I know I was not a joke I see that as a direct move to try and come up with another reason to pass articles of impeachment against president trump if Democrats retain control of the house after the November elections

"Live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow live and now your host Jordan's secular welcome back to J. secular live as we've seen today really a change in tone from the president from you see the the praise from mainstream media outlets play data bash you got attacked for this misuse of being very open and honest and giving her live analogy of the present and the administration's response to cope with IT thankless this was remarkable from the president of the United States this is a nonpartisan this is an important thing to note and to applaud from an American standpoint from a from a human standpoint he is being the kind of leader that people need at least in tone today and yesterday in tones that people need and want and you're in for in times of crisis and uncertainty yeah so listen I'm no date Dana bash for many many years she's a great reporter she's top reporter she's fair she's honest she said something there that was positive about the president as to how he was handling this over the last several days doesn't mean she is praising his administration on another thing so let's be clear but the fact is I think it's it's good when media knowledge is that a particular activity is B. or particular problems being handled well and governor Cuomo from New York is set it the governor Newsom from California said if the president is handling this well he's going to the phone he's going to the media every day every morning or every afternoon it appears atop Randall anything yes it was an hour and a half now that one of things are trying to develop as a self swab test the test is pretty invasive right now yep I mean I've I've had into work done where they you know basically go through your nose down your throat but now they're thinking they may be able to do a self what method so they're working on all this working hard but they by putting in the defense production act understand that this is a a wartime presidency at this point it is a different kind of a different kind of war the modeling on this runs the whole gamut but if we're successful over the next you know two or three weeks it can really reduce this but the younger generation you got to help us we need your help this provides we kind of like the times when people are having to be swabbed and that was pretty evasive to even that's problems pretty far up the the days when we had the with the entrance Capitol Hill yeah but this test is even more invasive right now and president trump talked about it because he's had to take a listen by twenty three thirty three today I can announce further steps to expand testing capacity we're working with several groups to determine if the cell swab a much easier process than the current process that says not very nice to do I can tell you because I did it so there you go anything I think this is what we want to get to I think the American people the more more testing that's available depending on the recommendations from the government after this two week period and we get a sense of where this is really the really bad where this is more mild and I think certain areas could possibly make changes based off those recommendations that's why they only put them in place for two weeks now I'm not saying that I can come back and to say we need more restrictions but if we were able to contain this the certain areas then maybe in some parts of the country things are getting more more back to normal not normal but it's that testing testing testing the Congress has been focused on and now we're starting to see that at a much more widespread scale and a lot of people well known people they get reported you get news alerts about celebrities getting testing positive and it's happening across the entertainment sports world my view Jordan is that the more testing we have the more peace of mind it will bring in the more will bring people into a knot compliance which is cooperation with the guidance that's coming out and it will actually restrict with the federal government has to do Jordan I would also just tell you you know leader McConnell is passing the bill the speaker Pelosi passed over the objection of a bunch of Republican senators I think that's the kind of cooperation we need and you mention the political impact look I think it'll reflect positively on people like governor Cuomo as well so it's not Republican Democrat it's people who come together in a time like this I think the American people world respond positively to those moves Winston Churchill said in the in the second volume of the book on the the second World War which is disagree I'm reading it again reporter it's a great rates called the their finest hour you talk about parliament is that parliament also required guidance about the conduct of its work in these dangerous days members felt.

"Was Jay Sekulow so okay there will be one more question before answering the question source thank you and that question is being asked by the Democrats and it is being forwarded to the Chief Justice now and the Chief Justice reads the question off of a card so far it seems like the questions are being posed to the US side that asking the questions the question from senator Harris is for the house managers president Nixon said quote when the president does it that means that it is not illegal and quote before he was elected president trump said quote when you're a star they let you do it you can do anything end quote after he was elected president trump said that article two of the constitution gives him quote the right to do whatever he wants as president end quote these statements suggest that each of them believed that the president is above the law a belief reflected in the improper actions that both presidents talk to affect their re election campaigns if the Senate fails to hold the president accountable for misconduct how would that undermine the integrity of our system of justice and the question is posed a to the democratic side it was like Adam Schiff is gonna field that question he is making his way to the podium there was one question that was asked of both sides where each side got two and a half minutes to respond Mister justice centers at I think this is exactly the fear I think if you look at the pattern in this presents a conduct and his words what you see is a president who identifies the state as being himself when the president talks about people that report is wrong doing for example when he describes a whistle blower as a traitor or a spy the only way you can conceive of someone who reports wrongdoing as committing a crime against the country is if you believe that you are synonymous with the country that any report of wrongdoing against the president to the person the president is a treasonous act it is the kind of mentality that says under article two I can do whatever I want that I'm allowed to fight all subpoenas now counsel is given a variety of explanations for the fighting of all subpoenas they might have a plausible argument if the administration had given hundreds of documents but reserves Solomon made a claim of privilege or the administration has said would allow these witnesses to testify but with these witnesses with these particular questions we want to assert a privilege but of course that's not what was done here what we have instead is a shifting series of rationales and explanations and duplicitous arguments some made in court and some made here you have the argument that the subpoenas aren't valid before the house resolution and then with respect to subpoenas issued after the house resolution like to move any well those are no good either you have the argument made that we have absolute immunity and the court that addresses this says no you don't your not a king that argument may be thought of with favor by various presence over history it has never been supported by any court in the land there's no constitutional support for that either documents that are being released right now as we sit here and it's a mystery the country it's a mystery to some of us how our private litigants able to get documents through the freedom of information act that the administration has withheld from Congress if they were operating in any good faith would that be the case of course the answer is no what we have instead is we're gonna claim absolute immunity even the call though the court says that doesn't exist now they said well we no the the house withdrew the subpoena and doctor company and why would they withdraw the subpoena on doctor Kupperman when he was only threatening to tie you up and Leslie in court now we suggested to counsel for doctor Kupperman that if they had a good faith concern about testified if this was really good faith and it wasn't just a strategy to delay if it wasn't just part of the president's wholesale fight all subpoenas they didn't need to file civil litigation because it was actually case already in court involving don McGann on that very subject that was right for decision indeed the decision would come out very shortly thereafter so we said let's just agree to be bound by what the McGann court decides well they didn't want to do that and became obvious once again court decision came out because I'm again court said there's no absolute immunity you must testify and by the way if you think people involved in national security I a doctor Kupperman and John bold if you're listening if you think your somehow absolutely immune you're not so the doctor Kupperman said well now I have the comfort I needed because the court has weighed in the answer is of course not now counsel says well we might have gotten a quick judgment in Kupperman yeah in the lower court do any of you believe for a single minute they wouldn't appeal the court of appeals and to the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court struck down the absolute immunity argument they wouldn't be back in the district court's single case not absolutely man anymore but we're going to claim executive privilege over specific conversations that go to the presence of wrongdoing get that is the sign of a president who believes he is above the law that article to empower them to do anything he wants and I'll say this if you accept that argument accept the argument that the president I'd states can tell you to pound sand when you try to investigate his wrongdoing there will be no force behind any Senate subpoena in the future the fighting subpoenas started before the impeachment if you allow a person to struct Congress so completely in a way that Nixon could never have contemplated nor with the Congress of that day have allowed he will of history your own oversight capability thanks to the house opens they are limited to five majorities in respond ized I suggested we resume at four o'clock without objection so ordered I said that would be twenty one and a half minutes from now this is the break that Mitch McConnell had asked for a previously so we are

Senate Impeachment Trial of Trump Begins
"We're going to spend a few minutes reviewing the very long day that has just transpired many hours ago yesterday in fact the Senate the surgeon at arms of the Senate and noticed the beginning of this impeachment trial here you hear you hear me all persons are commanded to keep silent on pain of imprisonment well the son of United States is sitting for the trial of the articles of impeachment exhibited by the house of representatives against Donald John trump president of the United States well since then Senate minority minority leader Chuck Schumer has introduced a series of amendments eleven of them senators have voted on each of them one by one and rejected them one by one mostly along party lines the amendments all have aim to allow subpoenas for documents and witnesses evidence that Democrats believe is relevant to the president's withholding of aid to Ukraine that withholding of aid is central to the impeachment charge of abuse of power here's representative Val Deming's Democrat of Florida one of the house impeachment manager she speaking here on the efforts of the White House and the president himself to block evidence as a career in law enforcement officer I have never seen anyone takes that extreme steps to hide evidence allegedly proving his innocence all right that is one view here's another this is the president's attorney Jay Sekulow arguing that that Ukraine aid and the phone call between president trump and Ukraine's president the one where critics say aid was threatened J. secular saying those are red herrings why are we here only here because of a phone call are we here before this great body because since the president was sworn into office there was a desire to see him removed all right with me now as they have been for many hours and pure congressional correspondent Susan Davis and and pure political reporter Tim mac and I want to give you both the chance to offer a final thought or if to hear I would I would love to to do is just look at the substance of what unfolded today because today was a lot of procedure a lot of figuring out the rules but we heard the thrust of what the central arguments are going to be and we heard Democrats introducing evidence in the former videos in the form of witness testimony we heard them introduce video of the president himself saying things that are now and convenient to his defense team from his defense team to Davis we didn't see videos wouldn't see slides a very different approach no because the White House and one of the negative effects of never participating in the process is none of the evidence at hand really backs up any of their arguments there isn't much of the testimony that happened before the house that vindicates the White House there's some that is not as bad as other testimony certainly people testified that they did not believe the president did anything wrong or they didn't hear any first hand accounts of anything improper but the overwhelming evidence that the house investigation put forward makes it look as if the president made decisions to withhold military aid to pressure Ukraine to investigate the Biden family at that at a time when he was and still is a leading contender for the democratic nomination in the twenty twenty presidential election and I think what you see housing Democrats using that video evidence and they've made clear that this is a strategy they're going to use in this trial is they see some of their best arguments are being made by the president himself it's not just testimony that happened before the house committees it's also the things the president has said publicly time and time again that they played today and will continue to use over the course of the coming days to mac let me let you weigh and respond to that what did you hear in terms of the thrust of where the argument from each of these legal teams is going to take us in these next days well the Republican argument has remained a like she said very similar threw out which is the president did not commit any misconduct that they're not generally engaging with the fact questions they're simply saying there was no quid pro quo that Ukraine wasn't aware of this holder this pas in aid that's central to this empire impeachment process and that there is that even if the president did in fact asked for an investigation or a was behind this holding it in aid neither of those things were unethical or improper the political argument at the White House is making which I think is where most Senate Republicans are going to embrace and try to land is that while these things happen the White House is saying the president didn't do anything wrong a lot of senators don't agree with that assessment but the political argument that the White House is making is that there's an election coming up and that this isn't a job for the Congress to decide that it's up to the country to decide the fate of the president that is a comfortable place for most senators to land even if they give them a place to say I don't think this conduct was the greatest I would've done if I was the president but I'm not going to get in front of my constituents in my voters nine or ten months out of an election at timeline the pets of Bologna the White House counsel mentioned time and time again and that is the safest and easiest political space for anyone conflicted about how to vote on this and it's a very small orbit of senators that is the clearest safest path to land without feeling like you had to take two tough for her right and and that was also something that the president's lawyers touched on that that that the that the house impeachment managers in the house articles don't accuse the president of a specific criminal offense and that could leave it out if Republicans certain Republican senators are interested in taking it to say that the president may have committed some sort of misconduct may have done something wrong but it doesn't rise to the level of an impeachable offense just briefly what comes next we will what we are heard there for Mitch McConnell they will be back will all be back and do it all again starting at one o'clock eastern tomorrow because believe it or not we still have not heard the actual formal opening arguments here this was all the freeway to that is that research that's right that tomorrow begins official opening arguments and the and the White House and congressional teams have the chance to make additional motions of their own this was senators putting forward motions one of the things are watching for is does the White House try to put forward a motion to dismiss at the very front end of all of this proceedings justice put
Donald Trump unveils 110-page defense to impeachment charges
"To say joined by Byron York on the you you and show you the latest I have just tweeted out is about the president's lawyers response Byron good morning I was reading your response at four AM this morning gosh you work late last night good morning you you know I thought it was a big deal it is of the defense memorandum because it's really the first comprehensive defense that the White House is may eat and believe me there were people on Capitol Hill Republicans on Capitol Hill who were wanting more of a defense of the last four months more of a comprehensive organized defense for the White House they weren't getting at all but on the eve of the trial they got it in the form of this one hundred ten page memo remember that that chain from Braveheart hold hold hold well Jay Sekulow and Pat Cephalonia waited until the trial and then they unleashed a hundred and ten pages of very dense argument which I've gone through back I've gone to the footnotes and I will get the footnote five six five in the second but generally it's a wrecking ball and I do believe I'm already thinking democratic ship has gone to the bottom I do believe that I don't know that I do I one of the most important things about it is you've been hearing Democrats say look at present hasn't made this case because he has okay he has no defense and then another thing you hear is Republicans have focused on process so much because they cannot address the facts of the case and I think one of the important things about this memo is that it does argue process it argues about the the definition of an impeachable offense but it also goes into great detail about the event at the heart of this case the president's July twenty fifth phone call with president the one key all the events surrounding that there's there's virtually a word by word analysis of the rough transcript of that phone call so everybody said the White House would not defend the president on stop on the substance of the matter has been

House managers deliver articles of impeachment to Senate - key takeaways
"We're going to begin today's program with breaking news on president trump's impeachment trial house Democrats and the White House have laid out their arguments prior to the Senate trial that begins Tuesday White House lawyers unveiled their response to the summons sent Thursday by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and earlier today house managers filed their brief writing quote president trump's conduct is the framers worst nightmare and quote joining us now to explain what's happening is NPR White House correspondent Frank or doing us Franco thanks so much for joining us thanks for having me so let's start with the White House team what are they saying well president trump's legal team says it's ready for the Senate trial may have delivered a very forceful response to the house find they're calling the two articles of impeachment passed by the house a dangerous attack on the right of the American people to freely choose their president sources close to the president's legal team said White House counsel paths of Bologna and trump's private attorney Jay Jay Sekulow plan to challenge the impeachment on both procedural and substantive rounds of a kind of keys that fire its rhetoric that we expect they argue this is a brazen attempt to overturn the two thousand sixteen election as well as interfere with the twenty twenty election that's coming up what about the quid pro quo allocation that was the thing that started this whole process right that is going to be a part of this they plan to address both the April and July calls with the Ukraine president on that as you note started this they will go over those discussions between the president trump and president so Lynskey of Ukraine they will argue that the house record from the house hearings did not establish a quid pro quo and they will argue that the house abused the power of the word quid pro quo and in noting that it never showed up in the articles of impeachment they say they plan to raise it because they want to rip to remind the American people and exactly how this all started you know figure this week the government accountability office found that the White House violated federal law by withholding that congressionally approved security aid to Ukraine does that finding play into this and if so how it could I mean certainly the White House is disputing that but they argue they disagree with the clues conclusions again the sources close to the legal team that say it should not be part of this and that those that those findings are not part of the Senate trial they are specifically looking arguing about that two articles of impeachment and very bluntly they say they're not they're not referring to or they're not going to be litigating think reports and findings that came out after that okay let's go to the other side of the equation the house right earlier today the house of representatives filed their brief in the impeachment trial what are the big takeaways from that yeah I should note that in there that brief is in verse is not in response to the White House button a legal requirement established by the Senate process in their brief though they make the argument that the president's actions were an abuse of power and that the evidence overwhelmingly establishes that he is guilty of both articles of impeachment there now urging the Senate to carry out its responsibility you know that was placed on them by the framers of the constitution and to uphold their constitutional of okay so we have about thirty seconds left left what happens next how is this going to begin next week well they gave us a little bit at least of the opening we know that Alan Dershowitz will be helping with the opening statements it he will also part of that will be paths of Bologna at the White House counsel as well as Jay Sekulow who will follow Patsy baloney who will kind of give an overview of the case but there gonna argue very vigorously that is NPR White House correspondent Franco ordinance Franco thank you thank

K. that these I get our private employees but holding them hostage I think play this game of chicken with the western world yeah it's a dangerous game as well Iran is in deep trouble economically they're trying to lash out the interesting thing about this is that they were trying to get the European nations to give them some financial assistance and to figure out a way to go around the US sanctions on their country this is really going to backfire thank because by by attacking British shipping they are taking not only Great Britain but Europe and aligning them against their own country part of what's going on also with the British shipping is that the British navy so much smaller than it used to be their nearest vessel was a frigate which was sixty miles from this tanker when it was taken and they were not able to attend or green I think they would have been tried it would have tried to stop it otherwise where's the US navy we have literally thousands of marines on board the ship there are twenty one ships in the region we can do a much better job of protecting international shipping and a certainly for U. S. vessels in the area but they're playing a very very dangerous game it's not going to have to have a happy ending economically or possibly militarily and I think they're playing the game as if you know there was a different administration in the White House this administration will allow our military personnel to defend themselves they will protect the international shipping lanes they simply will not tolerate Iran's behavior that will I do not think we will fire the first shot in less were actually really threaten but the potential for this to become a shooting conflict is very very great and frankly Jordan it would not surprise me if in the next few days something on for like that and it sat with the U. S. warzone and U. S. desires as though it were the ones putting out that we're not like trying for the Iranian aggression right doing anything different we're prepared for it but we're we're not like trying to put vessel just much closer see how close we can get its Iran the keeps taking a provocative actions this is secretary state Mike Pompeii army says it very clearly these are tough guys if they wanted to go to war with Iran to make the case to go to war they round the curve already made the case the curve are you shot down the helicopter you said they could take a more aggressive action like after the shoot down the drone like taking out the missile site killing two hundred plus Iranian revolutionary guard troops and and others are they didn't because they don't want an escalation take a listen by seven we don't want war with Iran we want them to behave like a normal nation I think they understand that and I think the whole world is.

The district court federal court, the judge, they're determined the house of representatives doesn't have the power on their own to challenge. The president standing to challenge, the presence USA funds. They've authorized there's political remedies to that. And it's not going to be up to the courts separate branch of government to step in and solve that for the house when combined congress can decide how it's funds are utilized. They've never giving up that power and can ultimately even override presence veto. So they've got the ultimate say in how funds are us. We always talk about congress having that power of the purse, as so that, it's, it's up to them and not courts to, to, to come in, so, but I do think that when these issues arise, whether it's victory for the Trump administration as it was in J support that we involved in the case that you have to use it as an opportunity to also look why are we having these cases?

The issue is is the president could declare a national emergency, by the way, national emergency. Does not mean a war who is not limited to a definition of. What is a war humanitarian issue at the border a six thousand members of MS thirteen coming into the United States seventeen thousand invisible individuals arrested with criminal records three thousand a special interest aliens all of those are are could be national emergency. Certainly MS thirteen is an sex trafficking is the question is not whether that is a war or not whether we having a war. I don't think we need to complete the to some of the media is trying to complete. The two issue series, but they're very separate. Absolutely. And so in addition to the statistics that we have just gone over the number of special interest aliens that have entered this country, the number of gang members. It's also important to note that the US system for detaining illegals is unprepared for the change in the composition of those illegals who are crossing the border in the past in the past decades, or so most of the individuals crossing the border were single adults often single men now you have a large number of families who are crossing the border, and we have insufficient facilities to deal with them. So that alone in my opinion, constitutes a ground for declaring a national emergency. And for the president invoking, his national emergency powers, and I think. He will set forth the case a hopefully tonight in support of such a declaration, so Jordan, the having Pelosi and Schumer respond. I think was not a smart move. I think very dangerous for the Democrats to follow President Trump. He's the commander in chief who has all the information to decide if there's a national emergency. And honestly, they just look weak on border security. I mean, what are they get all that they're doing here say we oppose the president being strong on border security. We don't agree with the facts that you got these suspected gang members MS thirteen terrorists coming across that. We don't agree with that. I think again like we said that the networks who have professional basically anti-trump hosts and guests on would have done a better job of of of going against the president in this eight minute speech than putting up to very unliked individuals nationally. I mean, Nancy Pelosi's national ratings are no better. Than President Trump's if if and probably worse Congress's ratings are always the lowest they like at ten and twelve percent approval. I mean, they they are the cause of the shutdown. Let's be honest because the house the Senate can't figure it out and get anything to the president's desk. I so very dangerous politically, and will they go far enough for their crazy liberal base these days. I mean, there's another point to this too. Is that their base has gotten so far to the left that what are they going to say that's really going to appease them. I'll just so we're just going to oppose this. Oh, great security shutdown. Always the government workers. Don't get paid. That doesn't affect by the way as many Republicans as it does liberals when it comes to these government workers, we know that the bureaucrats are predominantly Democrats, and that's not who's getting paid under the shutdown. I will tell you this. I think that the issue we have fan if you're looking at it from a congressional standpoint is what I said this earlier in the first half hour of the broadcast. What is the democratic negotiating point here? Yeah. Yeah. At this point. They're not willing to negotiate. They have not. Daniel would that change it? We know that was that was put on the table last week White House said they were willing to talk about that. And the Democrats said absolutely not so their goal poster just changing. But Jay, I want to say this tonight. The president's going to go forward and say we've got these known or suspected terrorists entering we've got these special interest aliens entering jihad assure encouraging their sympathizers.

"To Jay Sekulow live. If you're just joining us, we have breaking news today at the United Nations. There's a vote scheduled for this afternoon and things change at the UN, but it should be today should be this afternoon or later on maybe early evening at the general assembly a resolution put forward by the United States. This is a resolution first of its kind. It's never even been put forward before at the United Nations. Journalists simply it here's the text of the draft activities of HAMAs and other militant groups in Gaza the journal assembly it reaffirms the support for a just lasting and comprehensive peace process between Israelis Palestinians. Everybody wants that in accordance with international law and bearing in mind, relevant UN resolutions. But first number one, it can dims HAMAs for repeatedly firing rockets into Israel and for inciting violence, thereby putting civilians at risk note there it did not just say repeatedly firing rockets at civilian territories. They use Israel specifically Israel is named legitimizes Israel by by including why HAMAs being condemned because their tax on a U N Member State number two demands that HAMAs and other militant actors including Palestine, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. They're the ones that fire the small rockets into Israel from the Gaza Strip cease all provocative actions and violent activity, including by using airborne incendiary devices. It further condemns the use of resources by HAMAs in Gaza to construct as we talked about yesterday military infrastructure, including tunnels to infiltrate Israel and equipment to launch rockets into civilian areas when such resources could be used to address the critical needs of the civilian population in Gaza. It didn't goes on to say if this gets done we can then move on to a peace process. I want to focus on number three. A very quickly that point three the saying stop being condemned by using your resources, not to help your people, but to build Tara tunnels. It was HAMAs not Hezbollah who's now been found out to be doing this Israel discovered. Another territorial today, actually, it's being destroyed on the border with Lebanon, but it was a Maas who created this idea of territory, and that's how Gilead Shelly was captured and HAMAs who was who is still actively trying to build these smuggling tunnels that's been kind of halted by Egypt on their border. But it's always a threat to Israel. And now that's specifically is being condemned as well all of these different attacks on Israel and rarely civilians. I think it's so important absolutely one of the big issues is the fact that HAMAs does not accept the legitimacy of Israel. Hence, it is prepared to do everything within its power to target. Not only the military officials in Israel. But it is going after civilians and so- tumbling is simply part and parcel of HAMAs overall strategy, which is attack everything connected to Israel. Whether it's a hospital, whether it's a school, whether it's a house filled with family HAMAs, essentially is targeting every single person in Israel, whether they're Jewish or not. So they are discussed they're trying to destroy Israel. They're trying to push the Israeli people into the sea. And they have never accepted the legitimacy of Israel. The United States has taken affirmative steps to ensure that HAMAs will not prevail in the long run. And we're also sending a signal to the rest of the world because we've moved our embassy because we've aid to the Palestinian Authority. And because we pass the Taylor force act which eliminates hopefully, the Palestinian pay.
