"So you've heard Jim Cross reporting on what Republican State Senator Paul Boyer told gave us and Chad yesterday. Boyer, apparently the lone GOP state senator, who doesn't support the audit of Maricopa County's 2020 ballots, six months after the election, but also yesterday on ghettos and Chad Katya, our reporter alley Ventnor told the boys about her time at the audit at the Coliseum. Her where Experience with one particular guy who was hanging around in the press area yesterday. A guy she saw come through security with a knife in his possession. So in the press area, the guy comes up to our alley Ventnor and starts asking her a bunch of questions. Once he saw and heard that I was with Katie A. R. He kind of just went on a little bit of a rant. And he mentioned you two and asked if I agree with what you guys say, and I At first, I was a little confused as to what he was talking about. And then he kept talking about his his One of his close friends that he went to D C with and he said you might know him as the individual with the horns. His name is Jake. All right, so they're complaining he's complaining about gay does and Chad is, says As Al is telling the story to get us in Chad, and and then we find out he's friends with Jake and jelly. Jacob Chan's Lee, the Cuban on shaman, Whatever name Arizona's Horned Ryder. My favorite name for him is going by these days. So this only it's organic food, right? Right. Exactly member he wanted he was hunger strike right because they couldn't provide an organic food in jail. So this guy who's roaming the press area at the audit is friends with a guy who's in federal custody for storming the Capitol in January preparation, peppering Press B. People at the audit with questions. Um there's no chance to feel intimidated there that I thought was interesting, though, that alley experienced some of what you and I have experienced, Jamie because this this guy Gave Allie and earful about gayness and Chad, which I get all the time for my friends on and turn out Alligator gators and chatted earful about careful she got from this guy. He was so upset with what you guys said, and he way were so by Katie are was so biased, but I tried to explain to him that You guys are talk show hosts with personalities. And I mean yes, I have a personality in mind. I just family. Yeah, exactly. So as a reporter where we are here to tell you the news, and I'm live in the new center, I'm not live in the chatting Gato studio here. Who? What? When? How and why? Here's the information and everybody else. You know, this makes it really suspect to me that this guy was a member of the press. So what's he doing? Roaming the press section? If he doesn't know the difference between A. You know, a talk show host and a straight ahead reporter and I have both been reporters. And we both had very powerful people who don't even know the difference between because I mean there are a lot of people not to mention names your pile. Who wouldn't speak to me as a reporter? Because they didn't like what? One of the talk show host set, Right? Right. Right. Right. So so even though this guy claims his good friend Jake and jelly, the Arizona Horned rioter Um, you know, is it well, he's basically claims that we shouldn't be rough on him at all, because he's a gentle soul, so kind and loving that he catches flies and releases them into the wild. Okay, okay, but he wants to go in and kill pence. I don't know if he actually wanted to kill vice President Pence, but he definitely stormed the capital, and he's admitted as much and all that. Let's Hey, let's flies out into the wild. What is the wild for flies? I thought I thought that my house was the wild. Lies and they're doing a lot better indoors. By the way when it's 100 degrees outside, right, I would imagine so I don't know if Jake and Jelly or the Horned Arizona horn dried or whoever this guy you know if it sounds to me like he came there with the intention of questioning reporters as opposed to questioning the audit and the way it's being conducted. S O. I I really confused as to what this guy's role was, and if he had press credentials if anybody could really look at those and not laugh.

"Jim cross is at the Phoenix fire training academy. He'll join us live at eight A watchdog group claims Facebook posts made by some Phoenix. Police officers need to be investigated because they represent a subculture of violence and bias. The chief is now calling for a review new developments in Arizona's immigration crisis. President Trump is morning says he expects the new tariffs on imports from Mexico will be lovely levied as planned starting next week. We'll talk more in depth about it next. You're never more than fifteen minutes away from today's top stories on Arizona's news station, KTAR news. KTAR in-depth. The president was asked about those tariffs on Mexican imports this morning during his joint news conference. And we have more from KTAR's Jeremy foster who's in the newsroom this morning. Jeremy, the president kind of signaling what Alex Janos told us earlier this morning. Our DC insider, and our ABC news political analysts that the president is probably gonna go through with this. But some kind of a matter of how long it lasts. I guess it seems like that's kind of the direction it's going here. Here's what he said he was. He he provided an update on the negotiations. And I think we believe that the talks have started already, but he actually said the really going to start tomorrow. Mexico call. They wanna meet. They gonna meet on Wednesday. Secretary Pompeo is going to be at the meeting, along with a few others, that are very good at this, and we are going to see if we can do something, but I think it's more likely that the tariffs go on, and we'll probably be talking during the time that the tariffs are on, and they're going to be paid. So it's the five percent tariffs. That looks like that. According to him, it looks like those are going to kick in as for whether they continue to go up, I guess that's depends on how talks go. Yeah. So it's up to twenty five percent by this fall. Here's what he said about it every month. Those tariffs go from five percent to ten percent to fifteen percent to twenty and then to twenty five percent, and what will happen, then is all of those companies that have left our country and gone to Mexico are going to be coming back to us. Well, we're going to be he ever indicated as many, many, many people have said, even folks in his own party that he knows Americans are going to be paying more for stuff. I haven't heard him say that he didn't. He did not weigh in on that this morning. What he did weigh in on which I also thought was interesting and entertaining at the same time as many of his press conferences tend to be when he was asked about the Republican leaders who are opposing the tariffs, and even planning to take action to block. I don't think they will do that. I think if they do it's foolish. There's nothing more important than borders. I've had tremendous Republicans support. I have a ninety percent ninety four percent approval rating as of this morning in the Republican party. That's an all time record. Can you believe that isn't that something I love records? He loves record loves record. I've been looking around for that ninety four percent approval I haven't found exactly where yet, but there's a number of daily tracking polls or it could be internal polling but his Republican support is pretty much hovered in the ninety percent ninety three or four percent range. So. But that's due to the economy. I really for the most part, it's fairly for independence. It's all about the economy for those folks who are say they would vote for President Trump. They like the job. He's doing on the economy. But this could really mess with the economy, when you consider that now Mexico is our largest trading partner across the US. We they've been our largest trading partner here in Arizona for a long time. And it was like something like fifty billion dollars a month in trade goes on between the two countries. We've seen that he's not afraid to follow through on, on the tariff hikes with China. It will be interesting to see because I think we would see a much more direct into quicker impact if he did it with Mexico. I don't know that the five percent will be huge. But once we start getting into the ten fifteen twenty percent range. I think I think he might kind of back down. Yeah. I don't know if you will. But yeah, no surprise me either I it's gonna be interesting to see if these actually get implemented or if at the last second, you know, kind of like he said with the shutting down the border the last second he, you know what Mexico is, is starting to do something to deal with the Central American migrants coming here, Mexico, by the way for their part yesterday. In a news conference said, you know, put imposing these terrorists would would mess with both countries economies, and that would have a bleed over affect into Central America. And that might actually mean a quarter million more Central American migrants come into the US is war. Words is gonna continue on for a while? It would appear. You hope the negotiations, go well at the largest trading partner seventeen billion a year for.
