"Becoming a different party. And it's becoming a party of love. You have to see outside the streets. I mean, there's such love such love, says Donald Trump. It is right. It has. It is becoming the party of love, where the Democrat Party seems to have become the party of hate the party of Cancel The party of always on you to wait waiting the pounce and to take you out with this mob like mentality. That's what the Democrat Party has become. Democrat Party has become something to fear. Not something to celebrate where the Republican Party has become something to celebrate. And that's what Donald Trump is talking about. The growth in the Republican Party, the record number of black voters for the Republican Party for Donald Trump. In the last election, the record number of Hispanic voters for Donald Trump in the last election Asian Americans for for Donald Trump in the last election. Native American All the numbers are up. All of them, he says. We're growing and he's right. And he's gonna continue that way. Because all the Democrats are doing is saying, Hey, bringing more illegal immigration so there eclipsing their typical party. Voters black voters getting eclipsed by Hispanic voters because Hispanic voters Are bigger portion of the population, so black voters getting cast aside again. Black voters are starting to notice that sort of Democrats trying to figure out how to keep them in the loop, because that's all they care about All Democrats care about is their own power, and that's why they're going into this hole. Transgender LGBT woke nous because the 18 year olds are all about it. The 20 year olds are all about it, so they're going way into the future on that to try to secure those votes for the next least a decade or so. What they're doing to is stifling debate. You noticed that the Democrats over the last few years never really talked about debates never really debated Trump's points. They just went into the name calling and Trump's crazy on Twitter, and he's unhinged. What Trump did yesterday was give them a little bit of ammunition for that. He also talked about the vast policy differences between Joe Biden, the Democrats and Donald Trump. He also had basically his speech broken down line by line by CNN as if they were tweets, and I think it's a very stupid point that Rob just brought up there. It's because they could for the four years they could look at his tweets and just dismantle his tweets. So the only thing CNN could do after that really solid performance by Donald John Trump. Yesterday was put something out like this. This is the headline. The 50 most ridiculous lines from Donald Trump CPAC speech and instead of going into fact checking each one in disputing them and forget about fact, checking because fact checking is just absolutely absurd. I saw an article about a fact checker that went off on Donald Trump one of his speech saying. Well, who was the president? A month ago? Everyone who played that would be buying. That would be Joe Biden today, man. Yeah, but they broke it down line by line, and instead of disputing it or bringing alternative numbers or whatever they just put a snarky little comment. At the end of each of these 50 things, That's all they could come up with. And that is a great sign for anyone that supports the former president. Anyone that supports the Republican Party or conservatism in this nation is that they don't know what to do, and by they I mean the people that Lived, made a very good living over the past four years of eviscerating everything this man said in everything that he stood for and by association, everything you stood for it used to be. But the idea when You know the idea. Let's have debates about things, but that's not what's going on right now, And that's the part that is so alarming. Is that okay? Donald Trump. Doesn't even have a social media platform so you can't debate his ideas anymore. Always gonna call her. Okay? Great. Sure, sure he is. He's gonna call for more riots knows exactly. Meanwhile in Portland yesterday, there was anti ice protesters smashing windows and businesses how many media outlets on a national stage covered that Maybe not that many. So what we're getting into it is just that Donald Trump is going to be more powerful, not on Twitter because the media can't use his tweets as a distraction of what he actually says. So I feel like if he continues to do this strategy where he's going to get involved in the 2022 process he's gonna appear on Fox News is gonna go on Newsmax. Okay? And then maybe he'll come on Russell Hunter. At some point, we hopes we hope so. And that's what you're gonna have to judge him on now. You can't judge him by the tweet that he sends it three o'clock in the morning and basically sit there in the CNN news studios and talk about that for 24 hours until he sends the next tweet. L sent a note along the same lines that Roberts is going along there. Also in the same note to the Republicans to the Lincoln Project. Republicans the the old Guard, Republicans had just want things back the way they were, where they were just printing money and in building on their power. You've been put on notice the fact that Twitter And Rob brings us so brilliantly. The fact that Twitter band Donald Trump makes Donald Trump more powerful. It makes what he says more powerful because what he says the things he says are few and far between. Instead of 47 tweets a day And of course I'm throwing out arbitrary number there. Is several tweets a day You get one speech, maybe every other week or maybe once a month. You get. So now his words hold Maurer wait, and they're more controlled in that to the Mitt Romney's of the world, the Liz Cheney's of the world. Is it scary? It's petrifying, and I love watching them shake in their boots, and they should because they thought they beat him. Yep, they thought they defeated and they thought they got the man The big boisterous Donald Trump The guy from New York, the real estate tycoon that the media made for four years. They made this guy Every time, he said. Somebody couldn't wait to cover. They put him on their tabloid pages, paid six. He was interviewed on Howard Stern's radio show all the time. They made him who he is, and then they tried to destroy him. After making him who he Woz and they thought they had They thought all we lost the election. Always going to mar a Lago. Oh, he's gonna have this Send off at Andrews Air Force Base. Mike Pence isn't even gonna be there because my pencils at the inauguration is true, but didn't matter. They couldn't wait to get those digs in. They loved watching them fly off. Land down in Florida. They were like we're done with him. We beat him and he pops up again at CPAC and 97% of CPAC goers are all about it. Vote for Donald Trump in the straw poll, which troubles don't really matter, by the way, but nonetheless, it just goes to show you the force that is Donald Trump. And if you're Donald Trump fan if you watched any of that speech yesterday, You don't feel any different about him yesterday that you did a year ago? Two years ago, three years ago, four years ago, when you first voted for him, it is actually a little bit of comfort food. If you're Donald Trump support, that was a little bit of a That's it. That's the man right there actually did bring up the point. He said. You think what I'm saying is controversial. Now. You ain't seen nothing s Oh, I gave I gave that line. Actually, some thought because it was like, Oh, boy. Oh, what is he talking about? Was he Is he going to go on a crazy town? Please don't go to crazy town I like where you are right now. Stay where you are right now. Think about.
House passes Joe Biden's COVID-19 relief bill with $1,400 personal checks, legislation heads to Senate
"Turn, turning its attention to the nearly $2 Trillion Pandemic relief package, minus the effort to double the federal minimum wage. The provisions raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour is not in the bill. Some progressives are pushing for an all out war to save the minimum wage increase. But here's the bottom line from the Biden White House, even without the minimum wage. This $1.9 trillion bill has almost everything that Biden wants. They will consider a huge victory, even if that means the hike in the minimum wage is the battle to fight another time. ABC is Jonathan Karl, the president
Fresh "Joe Biden" from All Things Considered
"Work. It is 4 19 at KCRW. Thanks for joining us on this Monday afternoon for all things considered coming up on the program. Joe Biden is only the second Catholic president in U. S history. And though he and the pope share many views, many American Catholics reject him and much of it swirls around Biden stance on abortion. Last year, a professor of religious studies at Manhattan College said the U. S conference of Catholic Bishops has chosen to continue the culture war that uses abortion to drive wedges in our church and our society won't gonna talk more about this coming up on the program. Years of war have led to an unprecedented hunger crisis in Yemen and the U. N. Is calling for a famine prevention cease fire. Going to hear from the secretary general, the Norwegian Refugee Council about the humanitarian struggle in Yemen and what he saw on his visit to a camp and a clinic there as well. Let's say I take a visit to our roads and see what's slowing it down. Right now. Let's start an acting and the 14 south bad between Soledad Canyon Road and Santiago Canyon Road. Singler here. Some spilled gravel that's blocking the two right lanes and the Sierra Highway on ramp as well.
CDC recommends Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine, enabling inoculations to start this week
"The CDC now given the green light to distribute Johnson and Johnson's Corona virus vaccine, what we know and it's shipped out. I think I saw where some of the vaccine went yesterday to the UPS World port here in Louisville to distribute this vaccine. Yeah, it looks like they're they began doing the shipping yesterday. They'll continues day According to what we're hearing. The plan is for the first vaccines to go into arms. Americans tomorrow and this is the game changer. Part of this, Tony, It's a one shot deal. You don't need to get the two shots like you need to get for five. Her Moderna. You don't need to get the one and then follow it up a couple of weeks later, it's just this one singular shot. Also does not need to be stored in ultra cold temperatures, and the FDA gave the approval to a 22 to nothing universal approval that this should go forward here. So it look, It's really good news on the attack against coronavirus because now we've got three different vaccines that we can get into the arms of Americans if you get a Senate passing Joe Biden's coronavirus relief package. Then that would get money out. The states who have had a hard time getting vaccines centers created and pulled together to be able to do exactly that. That could also help on the front of covert here, especially while our numbers greatly as far as the country go for new cases are down across the country, And while you're looking at that you're looking at hospitalization numbers down across the country as well. So there's a a no overall belief right now from health officials doctor found she's saying it over the weekend. That this is the time to really take advantage of those down numbers. This is the time to get out there with more vaccines and just sort of flood the market if you will, with them spend some concerned about the J and J vaccine as it hits the market I saw I think in the UK was like 66% efficacy if I'm not mistaken, but How does it differ from five year majority of you know Well, the study found the company's vaccine to be 66%, effective overall and preventing moderate to severe covert 19 cases. The for diseases judged severe or critical. Their effectiveness is an 85%. So that's when you're talking about the variants like you're South African, your South American, the Brazilian version of it. UK version, like it really is effective against at a higher level than the other vaccines against those particular variants, So they're also trying to determine whether or not this will stop the spread of Cove it rather than just deal with the symptoms once somebody has them, so they're all kinds of elements. They're coming into play for this, and I'll also add this. Johnson and Johnson is announcing that they plan to test its Corona virus vaccine on infants, newborns and pregnant women. They're gonna be the first one That goes down into the younger demographics for this and put the tests through for it. We know that both visor Moderna are expecting to do that. But you're looking at Johnson and Johnson. They're getting ready to go from the age is between ages of 12 and 18 to start off and then almost immediately worked their way down into infants, pregnant women and their immune compromised immuno compromised people so They're definitely opening the door here to try to see if we can get to the point where eventually everybody will get a shot literally a shot at getting vaccinated against Cove in how many doses are expected to be distributed. That's part of the question here, because what we had heard initially from Johnson and Johnson was they were going to have $100 million is ready to go. They've got 3.9 million that are ready to ship out right now, so that's supposed to be the major portion of it here. Going to come back with the other 16 million doses by the end of March, probably in the last last week, or maybe even going into April a little bit there. They're hoping to have it all done out by March. But then that's going to be the majority of what we get for a little while. As we start to head into the spring time in

This is what I was saying the day after the election, November The ideas continue. The lessons learned from last four years continue. Here's what the former president Says Trumpism actually means play 18. It means low taxes and eliminating job killing regulations. Trumpism it means strong borders,.
The Senate Considers Covid-19 Relief This Week
"Senate considers covert relief this week. That's right accounts is the first big legislation of joe biden's presidency. It passed the house this weekend although with no republican support. We have no time to waste if we act now decisively quickly emboli we can finally get ahead of this virus. Democrats want it signed before the latest round unemployment benefits expires in two weeks so now moves to the senate under procedure that would allow it to pass their if necessary with zero republican votes but that procedure does not allow passage of the entire bill which is a higher minimum. Wage is out of it. Npr white house correspondent. Isha roscoe joins us this morning. Hey good morning good morning. What happened to the minimum wage increase. So the bill has been labeled as a budget bill And the reason why democrats went with that is so that they don't need sixty votes to get it passed And so they don't have to worry about a filibuster But the senate parliamentarian says. The minimum wage doesn't count as part of a budget bill. A biden did say. He was disappointed at the parliamentarians ruling. But the white house signalled that it didn't want to go against that ruling of vermont. Vermont senator bernie. Sanders had proposed imposing tax penalties on big companies. That don't raise their minimum wage but our colleague. Susan davis is reporting that senate democrats are abandoning that effort after facing some resistance a stripping out that fifteen dollars minimum wage may actually make the rescue package easier to pass. Given how slim the majority is because some more conservative. Democrats have voiced opposition to that level of hike in the minimum wage of course up progressive democrats have said that raising the minimum wage should be a top priority and that arcane senate rules should not stand in the way okay in any case they are going to stand in the way but the rest of the measure is there one point nine trillion dollars in aid to americans help with covert. How important is this to the president. It's totally an important. Be has really centered. His whole first one hundred days around it. The white house has been pushing hard to get something done What they're stressing that even though it doesn't have republican support in congress polling has found it to be very popular including among republicans. You know biden celebrated the house passage on sunday and urged the senate to act quickly saying if we act quickly and boldly we can finally get ahead of this virus. There is a deadline extended. Federal unemployment benefits expire mid march and senate democrats have pledged to get this done before that so they have two weeks

"Then their parents and then the Children, So we've got to get them back, but we have to get them back seat. Okay, so we got to get them back safely. That's always what you tax again. This is just it's not true. They don't the only that people want to be back to most of the teachers Weird cause what I'm noticing is a lot of teachers. You don't want to be back. Some teachers who do want to be back. And then there are the public school unions, which definitely do not want to be back, and they're making CDC policy. Administration's mess. And if the press had any sort of Objective ability to evaluate their own performance, or they're recognized hungry. Just they're being the president just garbage of their job, their garbage, their job. I said. My problem with the press is not they were aggressive with Trump. That's fine. My problem is that as soon as Joe Biden was elected, they're right back to ass licking the administration. They went right back to being the human center feed for whatever Democratic party promised Propaganda was coming out of the White House. It's amazing stuff. Amazing and This continues to be the pattern by the way, absolutely incoherent policy or just outright bad policy. People just eat it up. Even the administration lies on a regular basis on a regular basis about things. So, for example, Jen Psaki was asked about the covert relief proposal. This $1.9 trillion covered relief proposal. So Dana Bash over at CNN asked her, You know, that's a really big proposal, and there's a lot of opposition to it, because it's huge and includes a bunch of stuff that doesn't go to covert relief. It goes to hundreds of billions of dollars to teachers unions that don't need it right years from now. There's hundreds of billions of dollars in just payoffs to states and localities for their own bad decision making. And Dana Bash is like, so why don't you listen to some alternatives? And Jen Psaki just openly life because we haven't seen a covert proposal from Republicans? Are you kidding? Republicans had a had a bare bones $600 billion covert proposal available last August. It is now it is no March, guys. Jen Psaki just being a liar. The president has been open to hearing good ideas here in good ideas from Republicans and Democrats and how to make it better. And at this point in time, though, with this proposal is going to address is how we're going to help people bridge through this period of time. Get them direct checks, reopen schools get more vaccines in the arms of Americans. We have not seen a substantive big proposal in response back from Republicans. This is the scope of the problem and the scope of the kind of package that needs. We need to pass two to address that. You know, this is a lie. They no 100%. This is alive. Even the most robust estimates as to the losses that would be suffered by covert 19 in terms of economics is like $500 billion over the course of 2020 of 2021. Proposing a relief package that is four times that size. She knows that's why you know, that's why members of the media know that's why are they gonna call it out? Of course not, Of course not. Well, the good news is that if you really bite administration or not even responsible for your own policy So, Jen Psaki says Joe Biden can't increase minimum wage to 15 bucks all by himself. What's great about being Biden is that you can put out all these pie in the sky proposals and they never do anything and then just blame Republicans. So here's Jen Psaki being like, you know. We love the $15 minimum wage. We're gonna fight for $15 minimum wage. But you can't actually do anything about a $15 minimum wage. Weird because your boss is issuing executive orders on nearly everything under the sun. I'm glad you finally discovered this thing called the Constitution. That's good. Least that's good credit where credit to do. Well, he can't do it on his own. But he is absolutely committed to raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. He thinks it's long overdue. He believes that men and women who are working hard trying to make ends meet should should not be living at the poverty level, and we're going to spend the next few days and weeks looking for the best path forward, working with Democrats and Republicans, hopefully to do exactly that. Okay. Good luck with that. Good luck. Good, by the way, you know who's holding up the $15 minimum wage. Joe Manchin, Democrat West Virginia. In just a second. When you get to the absolutely incoherent policy of this administration towards Saudi Arabia and Iran, it is absolutely in clearing because that in just one second first when you're running a business HR issues can absolutely kill you. Wrongful termination suits, minimum wage requirements, labor regulations and HR manager salaries aren't cheap. There an average of 70,000 bucks a year, Bambi is spelled B A. M B. It.
Trump returns to the spotlight with unhinged CPAC speech.
"President. Donald trump on sunday declared himself the dominant figure in the fractured republican party and attacked president joe biden in his first major appearance since leaving the white house nearly six weeks ago. I stand before you today to declare that the incredible journey we began together for years. Ago is far. From over trump told the conservative political action conference in orlando florida. A civil war has erupted within the republican party with establishment figures like senate minority leader mitch. Mcconnell eager to put trump in the rear view mirror and others like trump ally. Senator lindsey graham believing. The party's future depends on the energy of the pro-trump conservative base. The republican party is united. The only division is between a handful of washington dc establishment political hacks and everybody else all over the country trump said. He also confirmed that he would not be starting a new political party after being chosen by cpac straw poll as the preferred republican candidate for twenty twenty four trump fervor at the four day. Cpac event has been so strong that trump's son donald trump junior declared it t- pack and participants rolled out a golden statue of the former president made in mexico in the short term. He he's making plans to set up a super pac political organization to support candidates who mirror his policies. An advisor said trump speech included attacks against joe biden including on immigration and security along the us border with mexico and the slow reopening of schools closed due to the pandemic. He also claimed his journey was the most successful of any form president despite losing the white house congress and the senate and the popular vote to the democrats
Fresh update on "joe biden" discussed on Ben Shapiro
"Throughout this country Shelters shop the country. But what happened is in Texas. They opened up one One that was a former One used in the in the administration of the last administration. How is it different from war? It's much different in terms of we have people there, helping them. What is first of all there were people that help of them last time and second of all? Joe and it was Democrats were trying to deny border findings that would people be people helping him But Here's the overall sense. Joe Biden is not running his administration. That dude isn't out there. He's gone. Okay, You're ringing the doorbell, and there ain't nobody home. The lights are going out, okay? And that is a problem. That is not a rip on him as a human being. That's a problem. He's the president of the United States and the president of the United United States, not being a fully sentient human being, especially when that person was supposed to be the only moderate inside his own administration. I made the case that during the Trump administration, sometimes the Trump administration ran like Trump wasn't president. They're a bunch of competent people around him. They're doing stuff that I liked. And so a lot of the kind of Twitter nonsense was just that was Twitter Nonsense. All of what he does not what he says. But with Joe Biden the problem is that he was supposed to. We were told this. He was the bulwark against radicalism inside his own party. Someone said That was why he said he was a Trojan horse for the Kamala Harris wing of the Democratic Party. Who's a Trojan horse from the radical left. That is exactly what he is. And that is he's not just a Trojan horse. He is a He is a Trojan horse with a serious case of termite infestation. Okay, that Trojan War is about to crumble at any second. He is not there. Meanwhile, you got his administration pushing, utterly incoherent policy when they're not pushing out right bad policy. So, for example, Jill Biden, the greatest doctor since Jonas Salk, she says that kids need to be back in school right now. Which is weird because I'm you guys refused to let kids go back to school. Do you think it's time for kids to go back to Absolutely this night. Absolutely. I'm a teacher. I'm teaching now and no one wants to be in the classroom more than the teachers do and.

"Taking the stage for the first time since leaving office former president Donald Trump called for Republican unity even as he exacerbated intraparty divisions in a speech that made clear he intends to remain the dominant political force already president trump judging by the crowd's reaction the former president didn't disappoint Martha commentator others attending the conservative political action conference Joe Biden is the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history that's true trump called for Republican unity he also rips GOP leaders who accused him of inciting the January sixth riot at the capitol instead of attacking me and more importantly the voters are moving top establishment Republicans in Washington should be spending their energy in opposing the body below to see Schumer and the Democrats trump is knowledge that courts have rejected his claims of election fraud but dismissed the Supreme Court and other courts didn't want to do anything about it press secretary Jen Psaki brushed off the remarks saying the Biden administration's focus is certainly not on what president trump is saying at C. pac man Thomas Washington

"On the Senate to follow the house and pass a covert 19 relief Bill worth $1.9 Trillion, But no Republicans voted to pass the bill in the House. And with Senate Democrats preparing his reconciliation, a simple majority instead of the 60 vote threshold to pass it, Republican Senator Rob Portman of Ohio tells ABC this week.

Chicago-area worker fighting for minimum wage raise for all
"Negotiations on the latest code nineteen relief bill are underway in congress but a key democratic priority is in question president. Joe biden had initially pushed for proposal in the bill that would raise the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars by the year. Twenty twenty-five no matter what happens at the federal level chicago goes to fifteen dollars this summer while illinois is on a path to fifteen dollars by the year twenty twenty-five earlier this week. Parachutes had a conversation with rob car president of the illinois retail merchants association and adriana alvarez mcdonald's employees and a leader in the chicago chapter of for fifteen. He began by asking alvarez. What's important to her to continue pushing at the national level. Despite illinois's hike being done deal you know. I do believe that this is Everyone's fight I'm not the only one struggling here in illinois you know There's a bunch of people out there struggling So i believe that the federal the federal minimum wage should go up to livable wage of fifteen dollars. An hour rob car. You represent businesses illinois. What are you hearing from your members about the most recent hike in illinois and in chicago again expected to go to fifteen dollars this summer struggling great word for it. There's a lot of employers for struggling as well which is why we historic on them. State as a result of the pandemic. It's going to impose. I think for us for for washington. Elways cautionary tale in that. You don't want to do this and you want to think twice about doing all certain epic because it makes components I what about that. The nonpartisan congressional budget office put out a study this month saying that raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour. It would live nearly a million people out of poverty but it could also lead to the loss of one point four million jobs. Could it actually hurt workers instead of help in my opinion i don't think so The more money. I have in my pocket. I'll be able to go to these small mom and pop shops that i have by my house. I don't have to make the trip to you know those big corporations that Have the deals So i'm not going to be saving any kind of money. I'm going to be spending it right back into the economy rob car if you look at the minimum wage adjusted for inflation over. The last several decades really hasn't gone up at all in fact it's gone down. Should the minimum wage at least keep up with inflation. Well i think the calculation depends on where you start. Become finished from sixty eight has been chosen by the advocates rather randomly choose from other years so different story. But no you don't wanna have wage on automatic increments. Sales are not automatic increase for example. When i when you talk about the retail sector. I represent It's been horrible policy. The state of illinois to continuous minimum wage increases in the midst of this pandemic when she would have something automatic on like that so that would be a terrible approach. What about that Again Rob is saying there shouldn't be automatic raises but if you look at the minimum wage adjusted for inflation It really hasn't moved at all. And then we're talking about fifty years since. Yeah it's it's been you know. The federal minimum wage has been stuck since two thousand nine. And i mean everything else has gone up We have to work two three jobs just to you know by essential stuff and i honestly don't think that that's that's right And seventy five is not enough
House passes $1.9T pandemic bill on near party-line vote
"Bill. It's a win for President Joe Biden. But even his Democrats savor that major step party leaders trying to assure progressives that will revive their derailed drive to boost the minimum wage.

U.S. imposes sanctions, visa bans on Saudis for journalist Khashoggi's killing
"This report on the killing of jamal khashoggi Joe biden. i think it's given quite an incipient response to it saying we're going to withdraw visas from some saudi leaders. I will only deal with the king not dealing with His name it's bin salman anymore. I'm thinking how pathetic given you. Saudi arabia state in the campaign. And this really is the best that you can do if you were prime minister. Now what would you do. Hasn't he also said that they're going to restrict arm sales though on the basis of the yemen conflict which is quite a big thing about listening to the if i was a few weeks here. That's got nothing to do with this. No but it does signal a change in the us leadership's approach to saudi in fact the the the publication of the report which was in existence when trump was the president is also a sign of a change and a sort of strengthening of the position with respect to saudi i. It's so difficult because saudi is an important. You know everybody goes or just want a relationship with saudi so that you can sell them. Lots of weapons. Well yes is part of the answer to that but actually they are quite important security partner particularly in relation to counter-terror not quite often why people have perhaps not taken the very robust approach to them that you might have expected when they get inside this apparatus and begin to understand that relationship
China State Media Says Biden's Early Policy 'Smacks of Trumpism'
"Campaign Republicans sought to portray Joe Biden is likely to be soft on China, but an editorial in Chinese state media this past week Says the Biden administration policy toward Beijing Quote smacks of Trumpism Bloomberg Economics reporter Shawn Donnan has been tracking trade policy. He joins me now for some insight into what to expect, Shawn. It is always a pleasure. Thanks so much for joining me. Thanks so much for having me. Okay, let's start on Capitol Hill. Lawmakers considering Biden administration nominees, including Katherine Tie By those pick for U. S Trade representative. You've been following this hearing. What is your takeaway Ben from her appearance before lawmakers. It's really interesting. What we're seeing from the Biden administration is a real change in tone around trade. At the very least, we're still not Getting a whole lot of specificity in terms of what sorts of policies they're going to do. What Tangible steps they're going to take when it comes to dealing with China and other trade problems that they threw US faces But way heard from Katherine Tie this week is a real effort to portrayed administration. That wants the focus on getting rid of the chaos and trade policy that some people, really, especially in the business community, really agonized about what kids Trump administration and moving towards something more delivered is more process driven. Uh, probably smarter is their their their idea. Now she had made a pretty strong case for China to live up to the trade agreement. It has already eat with then President Trump. Where's that now? Yeah. So we're in this really interesting situation. Where President Trump if you remember in January of 2020 find this deal with the Chinese. He called the phase one deal in which the Chinese committed to, uh, to step up their purchases of American products. Everything from farm Exports to airplanes and other manufacturer kids on go also to make some changes and how they enforced intellectual property rules. And so on. And then, of course, we got the pandemic and everything kind of went askew. Um, but one of the big questions surrounding the Biden administration coming in is are they gonna make, you know? Are they gonna Look at that deal and use that as the basis of the economic relationship with China and the way that the Trump administration with them. Are they gonna seek to make China live up to that deal, and it's purchased commitments and other things like opening up its market financial services companies out of the U. S also You know the type provisions? Well, what we heard from Katherine tie this week. Is that well, that's the deal that we have with China, and that's the deal that we're gonna be. We're gonna be asking them tow live up to you. So that's the first step. We know that they're gonna Um, they're gonna enforce that deal. That's what Katherine pies signaling. But then there are all these questions about what comes back. Of course, Phase One implies that there's a phase two. And right now, this huge questions about whether we ever see of face to agreement, and that's gonna be down to what the Biden administration chooses to do it face to agreement would really get into some of the structural issues. In the relationship and the ways that China competes unfairly, according to American businesses, And those are things like the subsidies that the Chinese Communist Party gives to, Uh both state and private companies and united China in the form of cheap electricity. Cheap loans on Shawn So you know, we're getting a little bit of a hint, but a lot of questions still left Now, a lot of this and you touched on this briefly. I want to dig a little bit deeper. These agreements are often about enforcement, not just words. But how they're going to have some teeth now, What are you expecting from the Biden administration when it comes to trade with China and enforcing those deals? Yeah. So one of the features that Bob Lighthizer of the President Trump's U. S trade representative was very proud of in the China agreement was an enforcement mechanism that there was a way for the US to, uh hold China accountable and impose tariffs and another punitive measures. If China didn't live up to the deal, we don't yet know what the Biden administration is going to do. We haven't yet had that situation. Where, Um, we're looking at an enforcement case. But that's ah, huge question that we also know that the Biden administration may choose to take another route in terms of enforcing a deal like this or taking on China, another in other issues. Trafford Ty used to be the chief China enforcement officer at the U. S Trade representative. Office. She's the one she was the lawyer who was literally arguing before the World Trade Organization cases on behalf of the US against China. One thing she said this week is that By administration expect to engage and take a leadership role at the World Trade Organization again. And so that means that the administration made may choose to go there rather than the bilateral route, which kind of took the U. S and China outside of the existing global trade rules.
Senate Democrats move immediately to "Plan B" on minimum wage
"Yesterday we told you That the parliamentarian head ruled that the dollar minimum wage does not pass muster for reconciliation and must be taken out of a covid relief. Bill now We clarified unlike most of the media. That the parliamentary and actually has no power whatsoever It is just give an advisory opinion is not an actual ruling. The person who does the ruling is actually the presiding chair of the senate was normally is the vice president so comma. Harris is going to have a huge part in this conversation now wants the parliamentarian gave her so called ruling. All the democrats immediately gave up on fifteen dollars minimum wage as things stand now they are going to be taking that provision is going to be taken out of the bill and we will not get fifteen dollar minimum wage for at least four years now. There is a way to prevent it. There are four steps here. I'm going to walk through all four steps and you will see that if we do this. It's actually very doable. To keep it in the bill and to actually win on this issue but it requires courage from progressives and then Requires us to put public pressure on some of our allies and then eventually to the biden administration and sure so step one is unfortunately right now the most important step and where we're going to have to call out bernie sanders bernie sanders. Is the chair of the budget committee. The chair of the budget committee the signs. What is in the kobe. Relief bill bernie sanders. Current plan is to take fifteen dollars minimum wage out of the covid relief. Bill that is a terrible idea. He should not do that. If corporate democrats are going to vote against let them vote against it but doing it on their behalf. i cannot overstate. What a bad idea that is in that scenario that right now is what is going to happen unless we change it together bernie would kill the fifteen dollar minimum wage on behalf of joe manchin and joe by. He should not do that. So that's this is step one. I'm going to get to the other steps in a second guys. I need you to immediately participate. We've got a campaign we've got a partition and and we've got hashtags. We must do all of the above and the campaign is called. Don't kill it bernie because yes step one indisputably. It is a matter of fact. Is that the budget chair decides if it goes in the bill that is bernie sanders. That was the whole point of him being budget share. If he's going to take out. Fifteen dollar minimum wage will take out every provision the joe manchin and joe biden are opposed to that means we will get no progressive priorities past none. The fifteen dollars. Minimum wage was literally the bare minimum. It was the first ask of progressives so bernie. You've got to keep it in the bill because if he does not keep it in the bill. It's over that hashtag fight for fifteen. There is no more fight. That means progressive surrender. I'm being honest with you. Guys our job is to do the news. Those are the facts of how this process works so go to the petition. All right and here. Let's put it up for you guys and it's simply called. Don't kill it bernie. And what is saying is we don. T have a clear message. Don't take it out of the bill. It's one hundred percent your call on whether you keep it in the bill or take it out of the bill. Do not do that because if you take it out of the bill and you kill it then we will not be able to get back to it for four long years and there's no reason for it so and and if you're tweeting about this at all please use hashtag. Don't kill it bernie. Because we must get senator sanders to turn around. There are no other steps if he takes it out of the bill now if he keeps it in the bill now let me walk you through how we could actually win on this step two would be since it's in the bill. The presiding officer of the senate would have to rule to take it out of the bill. So kamala harris who in her role as the vp would normally be the presiding officer. The senate would have to actively vote with republicans or side with republicans the and the parliamentarian for what it's worth again. The parliamentarian has no vote. No power just gave a rando opinion on what they think they should do it. The republicans would never care about it. It it has no force of law at all. in fact it's being used as an excuse by kamla harris show schumer and the others to kill a provision. They were never in favor of so. Then we have to put pressure on comma harris to not side with mitch mcconnell. Can we do that. Yes yes we can definitely do that. If chuck schumer wants to protect com la- harris and he puts another senator in as the presiding officer. Will they will put pressure on chuck schumer. Would you like to continue to be the senator from new york. There are a lot of progressives in new york very very strong. Progressives in new york that could easily take that seat not easily but that could certainly have a shot at taking that seat. So now here's the most part steps three if she decides to take it out of the bill. There's nothing we can do about it comma harrison show schumer will then actively be saying okay. We killed the fifteen dollar minimum wage because we never wanted in the first place but if we get past that step and go. You win you win. We're keeping it in the bill. Then mitch. Mcconnell would object. Mitch mcconnell would then say. I want to appeal the ruling of the chair. Now here's a great news. Since joe manchin a cinema cap the filibuster and so two joe biden. They would need sixty votes to overrule the chair. So that means they need to break our filibuster to overrule the ruling of the chair. They're not gonna get sixty votes. We win okay. There is a separate more but understand before we go to step four step. Four is awesome but right now you understand how simple it is with. Depression brought to keep it in the bill. We have to pressure mention not mansion comma harris and chuck schumer to not side with republicans. Why god is a progressive movement. If we can't do that what can we do. Do we have any power or don't we have any power. Were about to find out. And then step for is if the republicans cannot break the filibuster. The mcconnell has one last option and this is wonderfully ironic. He would have to ask for fifty vote margin and straight up and down. Vote to kill the filibuster in regards to the votes of the presiding chair of the senate now mansion cinema have said that and biden said that the filibuster is the most precious thing in the world to them. So what are they going to. Now turn around just to make sure you don't get higher wages and they're gonna vote to kill the filibuster in this regard. I mean you would be the most spectacularly hypocritical thing they have ever done and they've done some pretty hypocritical fix so you put them in an near impossible situation and it is incredibly doable but step one is do not surrender. Guys one last thing before we go to john and jordan. There's ninety two billion dollars online. This would be a pay raise for about thirty million americans and to the tune of ninety two billion dollars every single year the reason why biden mansion and the republicans don't want to do it is because the chamber of commerce is dead set against it they are those business interests are giant donors to both the republican party and the democratic party. And those donors are saying. I wanna keep the ninety two billion dollars. I want to give it to my workers. I want to keep their wages incredibly low now go do my bidding. And they do now. Bernie is not in that camp. But he's getting pressure from the other democrats to take it out of the bill. We in a sense have to back them up by saying bernie. We do not agree. We do not agree. Don't kill it bernie. Don't kill it

Joe Biden speaks to Saudi Arabia's King Salman
"The us president. Joe biden has spoken by phone with king salman of saudi arabia as the white house resets. The relationship between washington and riyadh ties between the two countries have become significantly closer during donald trump's time in office but this has been further complicated by matters following the murder of the journalist. Jamal khashoggi a us report due to be released shortly is expected to implicate the king's son crown prince mohammed bin salman offer more. I'm joined by bill. Law a middle east analyst and editor of arab digest and a regular voice on twenty. Good morning bill your morning. Let's examine straight away. What do we know that was in this. Coal between the us president the saudi king issues that perhaps saudi doesn't really want to talk about. What actually what's interesting about. The call is that the president touched on three issues. One was human rights. Any specifically single Jane elliott loon. The women's rights activist. Who has been released from prison but still has a severe restrictions on her The second is warned. Yemeni americans have made clear that they want this war to end and the third was security reassuring king solomon that america has saudi arabia's back. And of course that is important particularly given the situation with iran and mr biden's desire to return to the jcp away and interestingly as well his secretary of state tony blinken conversation with his counterpart flies. Open fought hand the saudi foreign secretary. He said pretty much the same thing. He didn't mention the. Jane elliott little but he talked about human rights. He talked about yemen and he talked about security. So the question is is these attempts to reassure as well as depress on the fronts. That biden wants action on or is this basically setting things up for this report that will be released and appears to be naming. The king's son magas oman instrumental in the killing of dramatic hollywood v. a everyone waits and most of all i think the saudis holding that brett i think that The in of the relationship between the united states in saudi arabia look. Saudi arabia is a key ally in the middle east for america. I don't know that biden wants to push very very hard in terms of doing down. How hotline as as some have suggested. I do think he wants to see some serious behavioral changes and he's using the issue of human rights as a way of achieving net.
Biden orders airstrikes in Syria, retaliating against Iranian-backed militias
"For the first time since he was inaugurated president. Joe biden tonight has ordered. Us military strike the pentagon says. The president ordered airstrikes in syria around six. Pm eastern time this evening. This is the statement that we got announcing the start from pentagon. Press secretary. John kirby he said quote at president biden's direction. Us military forces earlier this evening conducted air strikes against infrastructure utilized by iranian-backed militant groups in eastern syria. These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against american and coalition personnel in iraq and to ongoing threats to those personnel specifically. The strikes destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control. Point used by a number of iranian-backed militant groups this proportionate response was conducted together with diplomatic measures including consultation with coalition partners. More on that in a moment The operation sends an unambiguous message. Statement continues president biden will act to protect american coalition personnel quote. At the same time we have acted any deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern syria and iraq. like that statement tonight from pentagon. Press secretary john kirby announcing these us airstrikes eastern syria now in terms of what these air strikes were in response to this month in iraq. There have been three rocket attacks publicly reported in the space of a week the most recent one targeted the us embassy in baghdad. That was three days ago to rockets fired in that attack fell inside the green zone that heavily fortified area around the baghdad embassy there were no injuries From those two rockets on saturday it was four rockets that had hidden air base north of baghdad. That injured one person but last monday it was a more. A more consequential attacked. It was a dozen rockets last monday. That struck the usually peaceful northern iraqi city of bill that killed that attack killed one american civilian contractor and wounded nine other people including several americans at the air bill airport now it has been widely assumed that it was iranian backed militias that were behind these rocket attacks. Iran has denied any direct responsibility but the attacks have been seen in in many quarters as a way of sort of testing. The waters with the new administration should also be noted. That president biden took office just days after the one year anniversary of the us killing. Iran's top revolutionary guard general and a missile strike. Something iran has promised to take retaliation for the other context. That's important here. Of course that the biden administration just a week ago announced that they're ready to hold talks with iran on possibly reentering the nuclear deal that was designed to keep iran from becoming a nuclear power. That was the deal that president obama entered into with iran. That president trump pulled out of as we've been reporting the story trying to understand the scale of these airstrikes night. We have just gotten some tape from the brand new defense secretary. lloyd austin. He spoke with reporters on a flight back to washington. He had been visiting. Us military facilities on the west coast. This was on board the plane back on route to the. Us's coast a target that we would after we know what we get and and we're confident that that target was being used the same shia militia that That conducted the strikes. You're very deliberate about our approach as you would expect this to be You're allowed to it. Occurs the iraqis to investigate develop intelligence and very helpful to us and refining target. You i was season was my recommendation We said a number of times. We will respond At you know on our time line and once again we wanted to be sure that the connectivity and wanted to be sure that can't the right dr sites it was today. Yes issue one defense secretary. Lloyd austin that's tonight we just got in that tape moments ago. Speaking about the first military operation of the biden administration. these airstrikes on iranian backed militias in syria. The administration says they are response to rocket attacks that targeted u s and coalition forces in iraq. You just heard Defense secretary austin there say that it was president who authorized these strikes And he did so this morning per the defense secretary's read out to reporters tonight joining us now. For more is nbc's chief foreign correspondent. Richard engel richard. I didn't expect to have you back on the show so soon after talking with you last night on a totally different matter Joining us on short notice tonight to help us help us through this. Not not a problem. And i was speaking short while ago with a senior. Us official with direct knowledge of this This was a a message to iran and iranian backed militias. According to this official. And the message was that the united states will no longer tolerate harassment will no longer tolerate attacks rocket attacks missiles attacks and particular the attack on your bill of earlier this month was seen as something of a watershed moment so this was a a message. That times have changed that. Even though the president biden wants to negotiate with iran this administration does not want to be bullied does not want to be pushed around is not going to accept the Increased military action that put us personnel and allies at risk. So this was. This was a strong message. It was described to me as the The carrot the stick in the carrot and stick of diplomacy and deterrence that the. Us is offering the carrot. They wanna get back to talks but they also are using the stick for the for the first time today and sending this message. The target that was hit was described as a series of buildings that were used to supply and support these different militia groups. A kind of a border crossing area on the border between syria and iraq. the militias. That operate in this in this area do often cross the border. The fact that the strike took place in syria is also significant. It take some of the pressure off of the government of baghdad. So this was a a very carefully chosen target. It was a calibrated response. Trying to hit specifically the militia that had been targeting the us forces and allied forces and also to send a clear message to iran. That times have changed now. The official said this is also a message to iran and the militias. That things are different than they were. Under the trump administration under president trump and by way. We almost went to war with iran in a very similar circumstance. That that we're in right now. About a year
Biden Orders Airstrikes in Syria Targeting Iran-Backed Militias
"The U. S has conducted its first military action under President Joe Biden. Tonight's airstrike targeted infrastructure utilized by Iranian backed militant groups in Syria as our David Martin reports from Washington. It's in response to a rocket attack 10 days ago in Iraq that injured Americans. This strike was intended to send a message to Iran that President Biden will act to protect American and coalition. Personnel because in In one of those rocket attacks by Iranian backed militias. A foreign contractor was killed and a several American contractors were wounded, along with one U S
House passes sweeping LGBTQ rights bill
"Is from NBC. The House on Thursday past the Equality Act, a landmark LGBTQ rights bill that prohibits discrimination. Based on sexual orientation and gender identity and numerous arenas, including employment, housing, education, public accommodations, credit injury service. The LGBTQ community has waited long enough, representative David Sister, Lena, who introduced the bill said on the House floor. Time has come to extend the blessings of liberty and equality to all Americans, regardless of who they are or who they love at. The 224 to 206 vote was largely along party lines, with just three Republicans throwing their support behind the bill. Similar measure was introduced Tuesday in the Senate, where it faces an uphill battle as a 60 vote threshold is required to bypass to filibuster. At the bill, however, now has the support of the White House during his campaign President Joe Biden said passage of the Equality Act would be a priority in his 1st 100 days in office. Today's votes a major milestone for equality, bringing us closer to ensuring every person's treated equally under the law, Human rights campaign president all funds or David said in a statement. Now the ball's in the Senate's court to pass the Equality Act and finally allow LGBT Q Americans the ability to live their lives free from discrimination at the active men's the Federal Civil Rights Act of 19. 64 to include protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and identity. It's been introduced every year since 2015 by Cecil Any one of nine LGBT Q representatives. It first passed the house in 2019 by a 236 to 173 vote, including eight Republicans, but failed to get a hearing in the GOP dominated Senate. Opponents say the bill would impinge on First Amendment rights, particularly free speech and religious liberty. The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, warned on its website. The Equality Act would force employers and workers to conform to new sexual norms or else lose their
"joe biden" Discussed on The Daily
"He kind of charges americans to be better that that will be followed. There is a lot of reason to be skeptical of that vision but it is undeniable that that is what joe biden believes and that is what joe biden is charging the rest of us to believe. Thank you very much. We appreciate it. Thank you.
"joe biden" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing
"That means that his people his entire operation is really going to have to hit the ground running incredibly quickly when they take over in particular because they also have not gotten that much help that much cooperation from the trump administration in the transition. Suzanne joe biden has of course being in the white house during one previous dramatic intervention in the united states economy. When he and barrack obama arrived in the wake of the two thousand eight collapse will he be tempted towards something similar in the current circumstances or preceding more on the assumption that wants the vaccine is taking effect. The us economy will more or less sort itself out. Well it's it's a very good point. Under i mean i think there are lots of parallels here actually to what obama faced obama joe biden back into into a nine and you know even between the election on the inauguration i mean america. I'm particularly america then. The wider world was embroidered the biggest financial crisis in decades. And they have to deal with that. So yes there are a lot of parallels i think joe biden has a proven record on this and they were able to pass the tariff act. They did the the bailout fund for the auto industry hugely complex pieces of legislation. Where a lot of money involved. And that may well be the case. Again i mean the. Us economy at the figures december have been worrying. There has been worst. Jobless figures than had been expected am the signs of recovery. We saw in the late summer. You know really didn't continue as we kind of got into that second. Wave around thanksgiving time so i think the economic consequences. This you know are really not getting. Maybe enough attention here. Obviously so at the figures are overwhelming in terms of the deaths the infection rates and but there's also a huge impact on the economy. And i think we're going to see i. I believe around the world. It's it would probably accentuate this. You know the difference between the house and the have nots. If you like you know the poorer are are people who are have lost. Their jobs are in less secure. And yes we're seeing the stock market. Do very very well throw twenty twenty and a lot of people. You know hoarding cash. Essentially as saving. So these kind of issues i think are going to be front and foremost for joe biden particularly. I mentioned already because of this very strong left wing within his party. They want joe biden. Who who has been pivoting. More to the left economically i think for example compared to say a hillary clinton at the time you know four years ago and i think he has suggested you know with his pick johnny yet and his treasury secretary. She talked about for example. The need to address structural issues economic inequality along racial and gender lines in the united states describing how they are important for the economy to address that. So you know what he's going to do in terms of getting more covert relief. Package is going to be a key element of this first one hundred days in parallel to the huge logistical challenge of getting those vaccinations out trying to encourage people to get vaccinated etc and again. This is all going to depend on his relationship with congress and these are going to be. It's going to be a lot of money involved in this and Republicans in particular in the sandwich have been At loggerheads with democrats out late twenty twenty about the size and scope of a of any rescue package for the american economy and you know commentators ironic air pointing out the national dash went way up under trump a now are we going to start hearing republicans complaining about the national debt. So i think that whole aspect as i say in parallel to the the health issue is going to be a key concern for biden in the first few months presidency. Chris susanne mentioned there a couple of members of president-elect biden's domestic team we should talk about obviously the highest profile member of that domestic team which vice president-elect kamala harris do. You anticipate that she'll be a more visible and obviously engaged vice president than usual because it's going to be a very different relationship. Between her and president biden vice president biden had with president barrack. Obama perhaps ironically as things have turned out biden. wasn't really seen as a natural apprentice. successor To the much younger president he was he was running alongside whereas you already. Since there's a a feeling gathering kamla harris's president in waiting. Well i think To continue the two thousand two thousand nine parallels in in some ways. This is a sort of the reverse of that. As as you're discussing. Because i think when joe biden came into office as vice president he sort of provided the experienced the heft to the to the obama administration as the time as the sort of political establishment candidate for you know a relative neophyte in barack obama at the time and so his role You know he was. Obviously you also had before that dick. Cheney famously is maybe the vice president who really transformed the role but joe biden sort of ran with that and he was this You know incredibly powerful Very involved vice president as involved if not more involved than dick. Cheney was as vice president you know before that vice presidency often was seen as this very unimportant role and so i think in that sense perhaps looking now to kamala harris In some ways there's a reverse there because she is not the one providing the heft if you will joe biden is now even more experienced than he was back then so he will be the the fully experienced leader if you will in this campaign In this in this white house And so the question will be in that sense. What kind of room. He is willing to give kamala harris. What exactly she is going to put her stamp on In terms of us. And i think that's still a bit of an open debate. He obviously picked kamala harris because they have a good working relationship. She is somebody who was Arguably more of a centrist than some of the other candidates that he could have picked. You know she's not from the bernie sanders wing of the party. I think that was important because in wanted to pick somebody not only who was historic in terms of being a woman. I african american as well in the vice presidency But really somebody that he could have a good working relationship with in order to use her as both a trusted adviser and entrust her with leading on certain issues. So i think it will be very interesting to see how that relationship plays out and finally as you say as one point he obviously has not expressly said it but many would assume. There's a very good chance that joe biden will be a one term president and so in that sense. Yes this is. Come a harris's chance to really show that she is the one who will take up the mantle of being the leader of the democratic party of the future christchurch. Mac thank you for the moment.

"joe biden" Discussed on The Ezra Klein Show
"Will you know what he was adamant. It was that at certain point along the way. If he was gonna try to be the nominee of this party he couldn't be serving the wreckage of all of these wounded opponents. He needed a party. That was capable of pulling itself together and summoning some kind of unified strength. And i think there is some truth to that that the moments when he was able to He didn't he didn't extend the shift quite as vigorously as he might of now. I think there's also a piece of this. it was. It happened to be his this point in his life where he's not gonna do that but it turned out to be to use kind of more technocratic structural explanations turned out to be strategically astute to have done it that way i will also you know. I'm that kind of the point that you made about kind of where our heart lies with these guys. It's funny to me too. I'm sort of fascinated by joe biden. Any one of the reasons why. I've been gravitating over the years to him as a character as a person to write about is precisely because he's so different than me. I mean i am like fairly intro- introverted. I don't you know why generally spend my life sitting at a keyboard. I get to the end of the day of talking to people and i'm like totally exhausted and he is completely the opposite and i find that as somebody as a student of politics i find that really interesting why it is that you can have somebody like that. That is able to be functional in that way. And i've always just been purely interested in it from persona perspective. Come back after a short break in today's business.
"joe biden" Discussed on The Ezra Klein Show
"Obama tried to logic his way through politics too much. There's something about in feels about other people to he doesn't like advisers who he thinks they. Just approach everything cerebral. He wants to feel like they're they have some guttural sense of people and politics and that like biden. There is a process of politics. Biden thinks you have to go through of relationship building of trust building of negotiating that has to happen irrespective of whether or not of where you end up like. Even if you know where you should end up you still have to go through the process and that like biden delights in the process and why obama simply doesn't and that i think is actually like it is a part of how he thinks it'd be a different president than obama and also part of how he might actually be a different president from obama. I'm curious how you you handicap that it's you know what i think is fascinating in is the both obama and biden. Somebody said to me at one point the reason why the relationship work is the both of them thought that he was the to the other and the flip side of that of course is what you were getting at. Which is that each one could also be a little bit patronizing about the other and in a way that complimented them now. I think the reason why this then becomes really important in terms of of biden's conception of of the deal and i you know i one of the things i draw attention to in the book is if you do a textual analysis of my interviews with them over the years that phrase in the deal comes up over and over and over again. It's sort of been poisoned. Unfortunately by bob. Donald trump's use of the word deal but for biden. It is deeply felt. And i think what you what you begin to see that it paid off for him in some very specific concrete ways in this campaign the big question. A lot of people of course had was like how did this guy go from being more or less dismissed by the political process and to some degree by the public in the beginning of the campaign to then all of a sudden consolidating as fast as he did and the reason he did at is as you mentioned briefly about by about bernie sanders saying look. Joe biden has had a better relationship with me. I had with hillary clinton he actually listens to what i'm talking about. An i heard versions of that from people all across the the party spectrum even people progressive activists who said look joined the task forces kind of with low expectations but to be perfectly honest. I was kinda shocked at the degree to which they were willing to listen to me. That doesn't mean that he then embraces their ideas whole hog. But i think we sometimes under appreciate the body language of politics and the body language of politics can partly include the idea that somebody does not think that you are an idiot and that is part of like joe. Biden's core philosophy is. I will never come into a room and treat you like an idiot. I think it's then plays out in a really important way in the democratic primary. So i when. I hear all this like i completely. Discount these arguments from joe biden. I am much more on the bob like cooley. Technocratic side of way. I tend to operate in politics which is great. Because i don't run for things. And i just write articles and do podcast. That's fine but.

"He's getting older all the republican suggesting. He's getting senile. But it's really not a rhetorically deft campaign that is definitely not what is happening in in twenty twenty and i think oh eight is like there's a real sense of arrogance about what joe biden represents like he knows best like he represents like the the the voice of the democratic party of it's like working class roots you know he's more experienced nobody else on the stage. I'll do a better job again. Twenty twenty. what's notables like how open he is to the other players on the stage the relationship before ges with bernie sanders. How much he gives the left a voice in his campaign once he wins the primary through the the biden bernie taskforce's like there's a real thing that happens in between here where this idea like. Joe biden as america's empathic. Kindly uncle is absolutely to how i would have described. Joe biden no eight where. He was like america's arrogant foreign policy. Hand whose idea was he could be as condescending republicans on these issues as they were to democrats before like i just. I feel like. I've never been able to fully communicate how how different this is but it is really different. Yeah you know what's funny. Is i totally agree. There is a really fascinating little moments. That begin to evoke this. For instance i was interviewing jill biden and she was talking about the decision when her husband was trying to side whether to become the vp and he had been invited by candidate obama to be the vice president. And joe biden's first reaction was was like i don't want that job that's a no-name job. He actually asked people stabbed. He said can any of you. Name abraham lincoln's vice president. So it was this kind of slightly ridiculously. Grandiose self conception the good for the vice presidency and joe biden's response to him was hold on a second believe that the iraq war is a disaster. It should be addressed. You believe in making progress on race in america. These are the things they brought you into politics. you're having given the opportunity to be the vice president of the first african-american president american history. And you're gonna say no. And he did say no to the first invitation and he said yeah. But how. Am i going to work for somebody. I've been my own boss for forty years and her answer was grow up and i think there's something fascinating i say this you know. Look anybody who's got a spouse will probably recognize this story. There is a way in which one spouse can say to. You like that even if you are yells at that point. He's a whatever he has. Twenty five term senator In in the thick of his life. And that's part of this process of him than going into the administration. And frankly growing up. And i think part of that was coming to terms with the ways in which he still had a lot to learn a lot of things to change not just in terms of tactics and practice but really beginning to understand what it meant to be. Not just a senator but actually the key person the person at the very top who is the object of people's moral attention you know who they looked to to be a representative of our values and one hopes at least pointing us in a direction not just part of the chorus so one of my rules and pull the presidential journalism is that candidate. Books are way richer than they're given credit for these weirdly. They we condescend towards these books so much but actually find. They're almost always super luminated about who who people want to be in the role that how they want to be seen. So i'd read earlier in the cycle. Biden's oh a book which is interesting a good book about biden and then i just recently a little bit to my regret read Promise me dad..

"That's what you need and he's gonna try to work around it. But that's i think distinctive about him that he doesn't he doesn't think in a deal that he's gonna turn you or be you. He just thinks he's gonna find some way to make what he's doing work for you given what you already believe you need. I think that's that's correct. I totally agree with that. And look and i think that exposes him to the rest which Which many of us know which is that that can sometimes allow him to accept terms. That are less ambitious than what somebody who is more adamant about their ability to persuade would go for and part of that is the senatorial mindset. Which is his belief is. I might not get one hundred percent of the way there on day one. I might get signed. Might get a. I might get three quarters of the way there and then tomorrow we're gonna come back. We're going to talk about something else. Your romeo bone and on and on it goes and i can. I can sort of imagine listeners. Hearing that and being like that's exactly the problem of of how we got into this mess. Is this kind of constant cascade of compromises. And i think that his view would be that to have a functioning government. You're gonna have to lose some battles because you know that in the long run. You're gonna win some battles. One thing that i think has made this easier for by into do. Is that in a fashion. That makes him somewhat confusing to a lot of us. Who are not this way. He's not super ideological his over. Time are pretty mutable. Yup he doesn't seem to me to have a an ideological project in the way. A lot of people who enter politics do and that can seem hollow in certain ways but then but then later on i think could be an advantage. I mean what do you think. Biden has been eighty logically over his career. The ideology of it does not conform to what we think of as the usual locations on the spectrum the single abiding ideological fact is his belief in fairness and you can define that in a lot of different ways but it goes back to his very core of his understanding. I mean like a lot of joe biden stories. This one involves his mother or his father telling him something. But in this case it happens to come from vow and val told me that his mom is. My mom was a wonderfully ferocious and interesting character and she said to them. Listen you are no better than anybody else and you are no worse than anybody else and that can sound sort of like the usual. Old pablum accepted in their house. It was a big deal. I mean his dad was a used car salesman who once was at a at an event in which the owner of the dealership suit as a stunt through a bucket of silver dollars out on the floor and then watched all of the employees scurry around and pick them up and his dad was just kind of mortally offended by this and walked out of the thing and lost his job in the process. And there's a piece of joe biden. It's that combination of having a little bit of a chip on your shoulder and also believing that there is something philosophically offensive about lording over somebody else that runs through the entirety of his career. And i think that piece of it which turns out to have at various moments. It's it at various moments and has policy relevance like he really was actually beginning to think about the working class before everybody else was talking about it. A couple of you know we talk about that in a minute. But that's the through line that carries him to today..

"It's much more. There's much more concrete moments to hold onto the senate career so it's easy as a pundit or city will look voted for this and then you voted for that and i think becomes quite different than the obama era but i wanna go back even further. Hair joe biden. I think people know and we can talk about it. The terrible tragedy that marks the beginning of his career politics he's elected to the senate twenty nine his wife and his daughter are killed in a car. Accident and his two sons are injured. Broken bones brain damage. I mean it's a level of horror that you almost can't stay on the face. But i want actually before that because he runs for senate at twenty nine with no real political experience as far as they can hell no animating issue. I've just had this conversation. Roms from for for today. explain it. He was like why does biden run. Like what needs guy to get into politics. And as much as i've read all the biden books and talk to him. And i actually realized that i don't think anything does but but you may have a better. What is your answer to that. Why does this guy run at twenty nine. Well i think it began for him actually as a bit of a sense that he had a guest and i know we sometimes joke. This sound funny to people now but remember at at that point in his life. He was an extraordinary. He was considered an extraordinarily charismatic speaker. And somebody who really could generate a lot of attention from the press from the people he encountered he had these great events and i think that's precedes his decision to go into politics. Because i know you know. It's tempting to studios roll our eyes at stories of him stuttering because that can feel like it's being used as a political prop but it is a really big deal in terms of understanding his psychology because he went for being a person is he said to me who could not speak and was constantly an roundly humiliated for that fact to being somebody who was suddenly because he was he will themselves to be able to give these speeches by memorizing declaration of independence. All these things we've heard about that. Created a kind of preternatural confidence in his ability to will himself into different situations and that then becomes fused with this generational understanding of politics. He was running remember it nineteen seventy-two. He was an anti war candidate. He was running against world war. Two vet. joe biden was running on the side of environmentalism. He was running for these issues. That were all to a man reflective of as his advertisements put it in the newspaper. Joe biden understands. What's happening now. And i think rather than sort of having a specific philosophical motive. The way barack obama obviously was like really believed in this transcendent possibility of politics as embodied by his own story. It was more than joe biden. Saw that he had the ability to get people excited about the issues quote unquote and in that moment in that time the issues over twenty nine year old democrat..

"Joe Biden is trying to do something similar and in speaking of FDR, how does Joe Biden's agenda to build back better with trillions upon trillions of spending compared to the platforms of previous presidents Democratic or Republican so it's it's just a massive agenda in terms of of dollar amounts I think his green energy. Plan alone is about twice the size of Obamacare in terms of tenure spending, which is remarkable. Obamacare was a major achievement and he's proposing several plans that dwarf it and size. I haven't done the exact math with the new deal but I suspect you would come up with something similar. The the new deal in dollar terms is is not as large as you would think, it's the regulatory structures and new agencies that they set up that that we remember it for I. Think what's different about Biden is especially in comparison to FDR. Part of by people admire FDR and we remember him. The way we do is that he tried everything that he saw this world historic crisis and said, I'm not just going to set up one government agency that hires people to do public works. I'm going to set up like five of them and have five people I trust, run them and see. Who Wins a he called it bold persistent experimentation and I don't see that as much with Joe. Biden. He has a handful of things that he wants to do. There's less of a throw everything at the wall and see what sticks approach, but it is similar in in the kind of grandiosity of the plans and the scale of spending that he's imagining..

It used to mean things like women's suffrage used mean things like Republican Dwight D Eisenhower establishing the US interstate system connecting Americans with one other and creating a new national commerce route. It used to mean Republicans passing civil rights and ending Jim Crow. That's what transforming America would mean. Back then. I think we all agree that.

What does it Joe Biden? Transformed America look like. Let's go through a piece by piece. Because the activists media is not. Done this at all. Here's what it looks like.

Despite the Chinese virus, the lockdowns and be ellum INC trying to tear this country apart from the seems. But, what is it transformed America for Joe Biden look like. It looks like abortion on demand. It looks like a party that is not happy with only a million abortions a year. Did you know that there are a million abortions here? The Democrat activist Swan more.

"It doesn't have shame and can say things without feeling that the need compelled to say sorry if they are wrong or if they hurt somebody so I wanted to really get philosophical which. We don't always have the chance and the time to do with presidential candidates get philosophical about the notion of apologizing. And how does the former vice president compete with somebody like the President? Here's what he said. No I'm never gonNA stooped to where he is. I'm not going to do what he does. He says so many outrageous things and To usually divide separate When I say something. That is understandably retrospect offensive to someone and legitimately offensive making. It look like take him granted. I Apologize I don't apologize for every mistake. I make a lot of them. Don't have any consequence. I mean the the point I was making is and I said this to his face like you say dumpings. Now we're all human. We all have the tendency to say things that we don't mean or regret Joe Biden as he says with a laugh the good news people know him. The bad news is people know him and this is one of the things that they know about him. And so this is the way that he has to navigate. This going forward is still a work in progress. It's pretty clear I've got to wonder if somehow authenticity is going to be an aid for Joe Biden and because you know throughout his life. We've been covering him now for decades. He's never been someone who's going to be as brash and unapologetic as Donald Trump. But the one thing that Donald Trump also is is completely authentically himself or this persona at least that he's developed for himself that he feels completely comfortable in and so it'll be interesting to see if Joe Biden's own authenticity. Which as you say you know. There are a lot of mistakes. There is a lot of fumbling if that will actually help him in that But I want to quickly turn to vice president stuff because this is the fun stuff that everyone wants to talk about and talked to Biden about this. You asked him if you commit to picking a woman of color..

We have two choices in November. Both of them are white men in the seventies. I happen to belong to several country clubs. I have been privy to some jaw-dropping conversations in the locker room at the nineteenth hole on the course I've been privy to some conversations what you're hearing or what you heard him say is nothing nothing compared to what they say. This is just the stuff that you getting to clips of folks. Let's stop playing around here. You heard some of the stuff. Donald Trump is. See if you can tell me that. Donald Trump has not trumped that statement times fifty squared. And I got news with what he's really saying at Milagro in a golf course and in the board room is is amazing. These UH seventy some your white man now do you. Give them a pass for that. No all but you also don't give him a pass by not voting that try and not do you can't take your vote him not to and use it against Joe Biden because he said something. You didn't like which means you're like you always say Steve. If you don't provide them it's a sure. Vote for trump. Hey can I can. I say this and I'm talking to Tommy and J. Right now in June we have said some stuff amongst ourselves bit not ten not come out bet not to Gore. Does a news feed line redone? I know in the worst one was I do me. I don't know we're talking about your former marriage is all right.

Then they ain't black. A lot of people were up in arms about it Upset about the fact that he said that you know he's apologized. Of course for those comments. It didn't really bother me. I knew he was trying to be funny. And trying to just talk to Charlemagne trying to make a statement Philip man like I said I have heard White Museum in the Seventies. Make some statements at golf courses in board rooms sitting around joking and man. That's nothing and then I just looked at what Donald trump is saying with. No apologies attached to anything for during. Cobbler right now. This is the one that threw me. There's my African American. Oh he says excuse me you have one but it was so right after the P. Word Calm in and find the stormy all in porno that it just get away from things that he said about immigrants this stuff but the thing about it is. I think the problem comes in is when people get mad about that statement especially black people and we decided to hold our vote back and not vote for by because he made that statement. You know what I mean back to be the problem this coming November. If the you know that's the problem served and very dangerous shallows and like you say if you do if you're not if you're holding back because you're mad at Biden then that is vote for trump. That's what that is but y'all come on. Now come on look. These are two seventy year old white man. You really. If you GONNA be mad about that one I got news the stuff. That's really been saying you. You would be devastated. Let's let's move past. Let's find something else because explain some y'all the Republican Party. Don't Nick Pick people this way? And can I say this? The one of the main reasons Joe Biden is going to be. It looks like the Democratic candidate is because he's Joe Biden and he's been known to you know say things like this when he was vice president under Obama and people loved him for now. We're nitpicking like you say now we're nitpicking the things that come out of his mouth. I think he's being extra careful. Actually I don't think he's the unleashed joe that he was under Obama. Look Hey look what he said after the after the fall for the pushback of course not. He apologized how many times donald trump apologize. Siete sat one so lane things that you forget. Y'All y'all steel. Don't forgotten that he didn't separate it all those immigrant kids from mothers. See yanna forgot about that. Y'All know that quietly. He trying to push them right on back over the border right now. Don't pay attention to this right here. He does so much stuff he's A. He's an expert at D. DEFLECTIONS. That he just doesn't get and now this conversation about if if how do you about this statement cause up hear people say if he doesn't pick a black woman for president for his vice presidential running nominee that he's finished. How do you feel about that? Wow I agree with that. I think just the opposite white ladies. Dome that's what I'd say. Well you know the end you know. I've I say that I think that Black the black people that are really into it like that and make think that he owes black people something and all of that from Mike America. Yeah and because they know that we as black people are the vote democratically and we're going to put him in office. Those are the ones that are mad. I want my bigger issue is getting donald trump out. Now whether that's with a black woman or with a white woman I want. Donald trump out some people think camps. Since a black person picked him he should pick somebody exactly Alabama pick by. Well we come back. I WANNA I wanNA say something about this state.

Come on man come. He shouldn't have said it. He apologized. How many times has donald trump says something with no apologies? He and he never will. He's not that guy because he doesn't care how you feel on. Think he only cares about himself is so that right. There is a huge difference between him and Joe Biden and Democrats man we sit on TV and we try to play this self righteous thing and doll him for saying this. We are better. Get on his doll trump for what he said they caused. The Republicans are not going to do it. If you cut on Fox Donald Trump can do no wrong. Now if you're thinking that if Joe Biden picks a black woman for VP. Then that'll mean that black people are thinking that what's the black agenda. Let me for want everybody about something. You cannot run for the presidency of the United States with a black agenda. They are not going to allow that. Because you are the president of the United States Obama to enter that you you talked about coming here some specifically for Black.

"Right now. In the wake of that accusation there was a lot of media scrutiny of Lucy Florez and the important context to remember here is that this was during the Democratic. Party's primary season when Joe Biden was just one candidate in a field of dozens right so lots of people started questioning. Lucy Flora's motivations people like Whoopi Goldberg and John McCain Daughter Megan McCain in the old days we would call Joe some folks of a certain age would say he's a little overly familiar yes but most politicians. When they're you know doing this with you and you know they are and Joe is Joe is a hands on Kinda guy. I always wonder when these things come out. What is the motive she said on? Jake tapper that her politics it was politically motivated. And she says politics was definitely impetus at some point tar read as Lucy. Floors was getting attacked by Particularly some high profile commentators show called the view which is kind of a popular daytime. Show over here She came out said look. I was former staffer for Joe by us to do that to me. A meeting would run his fingers through my hair struck a neck. And so you know. I believe Lucy floors. I think that you know what she's saying is true. And this is back in two thousand nine hundred and that was that was the extent of what Tari came forward with that is that is basically the extent of what she came. Forward with Biden issued kind of blanket. General apology to all women get ever touched in an uncomfortable way. Kind of apologized for his over. Familiarity is his lack of respect for personal space and he moved on from there. I hear they're saying I understand it and much more mindful. That's my responsibility responsibility. And I'll I'll always believe governing quite frankly life for that matter is about connecting the people that will change but I will be more mindful respectful people's personal space and that's a good thing..
"joe biden" Discussed on The Next Best Thing
"Again. It was at the Hamptons summer gala held by the Greek Orthodox Church surely heard regardless. We were both there and get this. I'd actually seen Joe Biden there before maybe three or four years ago and frankly he was gregarious energetic almost operatic in his speech patterns but this last time I saw him which was just a few months ago he was looked. Kind of slow muted. I mean people could hardly hear him even with a Mike which has never been a problem for Joe Biden and honestly it did worry me and it kind of it made me kind of sad and it did affect my view on him as a candidate but regardless that all changed last. Tuesday that all change. How did it chain? Why did it change? Well let's talk about it. So before. The voting ensued on Super Tuesday. Virtually all polls and news outlets agreed that even the best case scenarios for Biden would have likely ended up with him trailing Bernie Sanders in the overall delegate count even if at the end of the day he was trailing Bernie by fifty seventy may be even one hundred delegates that still would have been considered a good night for Biden. Well folks all I said as I sit here ladies and Gentlemen Joe Biden Leads Bernie Sanders by a total of ninety one delegates ninety one. That is not a small number now. How is that possible? How could that be? They said the best case scenario was well. Frankly four Joe Biden. A miracle took place. Biden collected a bonanza of important endorsements two Saturdays ago after a landslide victory in South Carolina. Pete Buddha judge he dropped out. I like two days before Super Tuesday. Which really bothered me. He had been my candidate. I still think he would have been great. Then Amy Klobuchar dropped out in both endorsed Biden. Then on Super Tuesday Joe Biden went out and won ten of fourteen states. I won't say that again. Ten out of fourteen.

"And then at one point Biden, grabs one of the kids shoulders and says, I got permission to do this to joke the same joke, and so in people laughed in the room as that joke was made but outside the room, it of got a bit of a different reaction Twitter lit up, and you and I had been talking for the last several days like what is he going to do with this appearance on Friday is he going to address these remarks at all he just going to let that be the video that he posted earlier in the week to deal with the allegations of that had been made. And this was just going to be a standard speech. And it was it was a surprise to me that he even went there in any way whatsoever. Because I would have thought he would thought this isn't the. Venue for that I handled that I think sufficiently enough to get me through these this next period. But no, he actually he brought this up. Obviously didn't go the way you and he said Twitter lit up. So then what happened? So he made that off the cuff comment, and then some reporters had gathered outside the hotel just in case, he decided to come out and talk to us. We had no heads up, and suddenly we see him walk out the door and walk straight to reporters. And just off the top say, look, I didn't mean for it to come out the way that it did that I wasn't trying to make light of people's feelings. So it was very clear that he or maybe his team got the message immediately that outside of that room. People weren't finding this funny as they briefed him. They said you're gonna have to clean this up something to that effect. I would imagine. And yet or let this is now this is what fascinates me so much about this moment for Joe Biden, even as he's trying to clean up something that wasn't received in you know, in the way that he wanted to be received. And that I think I heard saying that guy. He wasn't joking. It wasn't a joke to him. Right. Like that was just him trying to deal with the new reality. And informing everyone that he did indeed get permission to have a physical interaction with the kid with the union trying to make a point that he has these kinds of interactions so often that he's on a campaign trail and someone will come up to him. And and we'll they'll maybe give him a hug, he'll give them a hug, they'll give him a handshake. He was trying to reinforce that. This is this is what happens with Joe Biden. And that maybe it was interpreted as a joke. Maybe people didn't like the way that it came out. But he didn't mean anything by it and get as he's trying to say, no, no, I get it. I I need to adjust some of my behaviors he also seemed to be delivering a message that this is who he is. And that he he doesn't want to change the human empathy piece of the Biden portfolio if you will which is a. Big part of his public persona. So while he wants to say, I'm learning, and I get it. He also wants it seems to me he wanted a little bit of both ways. Which is. Yes, these women should express what they're expressing their voices. Need to be heard. I will listen I get this. There are new rules that play. And yet this is what has happened my whole life. This is how we interacted with in politics. He it seemed to me he was trying to have it both ways at the same time. Right. It's gonna be a really difficult line for him to walk because he is trying to be respectful of women, and maybe even men who don't feel comfortable in their encounters with him. But this is who he is. He's been doing this for over forty years. And so that's going to be interesting to watch to see how he changes that. Someone did ask him is going to impact how you act on the campaign trail going forward. And he said, yes and said that that's fine that it's a good thing. And that's maybe things need to change. But in practice, I'm interested to see how this all. Actually plays out one of the reasons why say he's maybe trying to have it. Both ways is not the right way to say this..
