We have repeatedly called for the W. H O tow to support an expert driven evaluation of the pandemics, origins that is free from interference or politization now.

If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats and what's out there now. It is very, very strongly leaning towards this could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated. Wrong. And CNN Times reporter John Harwood. He conducted one of the debates. And then call John Podesta, Hillary's campaign manager. And gave him advice on how to deal with the threat. Ben Carson, who at the time was rising in the polls, anyway. Here's what John Harwood said again back in May of last year, when the speculation was that this thing might have escaped from a lab. Well, they say they've seen evidence, but they haven't shown anyone else the evidence and that's the key distinction. On the scientific research has suggested strongly shown strongly, according to Anthony Fauci, that this was not a concocted virus. This was not something that the Chinese created as a bio weapon in a virology lab, too. Harm other people, false. Come back.

"Second, But before we do a grab audio soundbite number 10, a Mitch McConnell. That turtle was sound bite number 10 John Harwood today on CNN's newsroom. And it was on with Jim Shooter who said moments before Senate Majority Leader of the Turtle made those comments on the Senate floor, calling Biden president elect for the first time. President Trump continued to tweet out baseless conspiracy theory attacks about the stolen election. You have any reaction from the White House on this yet from what the turtle did? And if not, how do you think the president handles what the turtle did? President Trump has the power To sink those two incumbent Republican senators if he wants to buy discouraging people from supporting them. Kelly Leffler, the appointed Senator, David Perdue, the elected senator. The president has the capacity to take away Mitch McConnell's job as majority leader. If he sinks those two, is he willing to do it? Uh, yeah. I think these people think that he is so just t to explain this. So McConnell goes out and basically says for the first time anywhere in the Republican Party, Joe Biden's president elect. Congratulations, Mr President, By the way, Congratulations coming, Harris. American people are happy to see the first ever woman elected vice president. That's great with is so happy. We're all swear. So Trump watches this Trump gets mad. Trump says. Oh, Turtle. You like being the leader of the Senate. Well, I'm gonna take it away from you. I'm gonna go out there. And I'm gonna suggest the Republican voters in Georgia that they not support Kelly Loft where And Purdue and thereby the Democrats are gonna own the government and they're gonna own the Senate, and therefore you will have nothing to be leader of. That's what hardwood is suggesting Trump could do. As a reaction. To McConnell, essentially Acknowledging for the Republican Party that Biden is Official. Here's here's Jim in Astoria, Oregon. Jim Great to have you on the TV network. Hello, Mega. Dido's Rush's Yesterday was my birthday. And today I get my present. Well, thank you very much appreciate, you know, you know there's 60 million people praying for you and your family and me, especially. I really appreciate that too more than you know, but But what I wanted to say was back in April, 2017 California was entering articles of succession into their legislatures, so I don't understand. What's the big deal? Well, if then, you want did say you know what? The reason I wanted to take your call? We bumped you up in the order because I just found this story. In one of the recent breaks, and here it is, it's actually this is a Web page. It's from November 10th 2016. This is just a week after the elections the week after Trump won one week, seven days, California Succession plan gains moment. Um after Trump win Californians made it abundantly clear Tuesday night. They didn't want to see Donald Trump in the White House overwhelmingly voting for Hillary Clinton now Disappointed with Trump's victory. They're seeking another way out a group of secessionists. Is taking advantage of post election discontent. Push for Cal exit. The new name for the prospect of California Sea seeding from the U. S. It's modeled after Brexit Britain's historic decision to leave the European Union. Discussion of the idea exploded Wednesday on Twitter and nowhere to be found was Geraldo Rivera, calling it traitorous. Nowhere to be found. Was Geraldo Rivera, suggesting that it was treasonous right here? My formerly nicotine stained fingers, a state of California the headline California Succession plan Gains moment. Um after Trump win There wasn't a single complaint. There wasn't any righteous hand wringing their, wasn't it? Oh, my God, This is outrageous. California needs to be so ashamed of themselves. California This is cretinous California. This is outrageous. How dare you suggest such a thing? This is there was none of that. And New York has talked about succession as well. Often on for decades. I guess it's I guess it's cute. When New York does. I guess it's cute when California does it right here November 10th 2016. It was in the election wasn't even a week old ladies and gentlemen. So Jim in Astoria, Oregon. Great memory. I'm glad you called, will take a brief break and be back and continue right after this. Erica's.

U.S. consumer spending increases steadily

"I say day after Thanksgiving. You say black Friday tomato tomato but the fact is that even if we're kind of exhausted by black Friday marketing and we are consumer spending is the the linchpin of the American economy. A lot of budgets will be made or broken in the next few weeks of shopping. So let's talk about that and the other top economic stories of the week in the weekly. Wrap joining me today John Harwood of CNBC. Welcome hey molly. So let's talk about that in the American consumer. They're expected to do a lot of work today. And in the next couple of weeks and I wonder you know we've talked a lot about economic indicators and stagnant wages and all of these sort of factors that way okay into keeping the economy afloat. How much weight are we putting on a consumer shoulders? Well of course consumer spending seventy percent of the economy and we've gotten conflicting signals Just in recent days about the mood of the consumer confidence as measured by the Conference Board was down four months in a row The University of Michigan's index. Actually up a little bit We know that the holiday shopping season is a week week shorter because of the late Thanksgiving And it's very difficult to predict last year. We had robust confidence going into the holiday season. We had weak excels so We're all going to discover In the next few days what kind of starts off to and what that might portend for twenty twenty right and then you know on the other hands you had. I thought uncharacteristically positive news from Fed Chair. Jerome Powell who earlier this week said the economy is quote more than half full. I mean did the interest rate cuts really work that well hard to tell in. There's a lag in terms of the effectiveness of Fed interest rate cuts. But I do think that Jay Powell has been signaling that he doesn't want to stay indefinitely on that path Clearly he's gotten a lot of pressure from the White House the he doesn't want to be too accommodating to that pressure for because the feds and Independent Agency of course and I think what J. Paul was trying to signal was don't count on a further interest rate cuts. We do have even though the economy is slowing from the pace that it reached in twenty twenty eighteen. It's still essentially growing at a two percent rate. which is the baseline of the of growth potential the economy? That's where it was when Brcko left office that's where it is now And you don't want to try to run too hot well and I know that this says The Big Shopping Daffy late today also marks the official start of the look ahead season where we look ahead to the next year and the Wall Street Journal is reporting today. The analyst Think Twenty Twenty won't be as good year for the Stock Market as twenty one thousand nine sort of speaking of mixed messages like spending might be okay. The economy might be fine. Growth might be fine. The stock market might be heaven forbid single digit increases in two thousand twenty. Where do you think of all of this? Well I think that's right. And it reflects the mixed signals Not just on consumer spending or consumer sentiment is we talked about before but also on where the economy's trajectory is right now Recession risks have gone up. It's probably not a majority. That's not the base case for twenty twenty Although the uncertainty of the trade war with China puts. It's a question mark over that but I think it's inevitable that the deeper we get into this economic recovery which is Getting into its tenth year The longer that goes on the likely it is that we're going to get a downturn and it's natural that people would expect a more temperate rate of growth in stocks. All right so it all sounds just about Fi- John Harwood fine. You met so mezzo. Oh

No i'm not happy with jay powell. I don't think he's doing a good job at all. I don't think he's much of a chess player. Oh you i want him to resign. Let me put it this way if he did. I wouldn't stop dude. You hired him. Joining me. Now is korean air coupon. I don't work elliott was style of above the lot dot com john harwood of c._n._b._c. the aforementioned juliane malveaux economist author and rachel bit of biblical for of the wason jason center for public policy go for being here. I'm going to come to you first on this elliott because donald trump is i hereby order kim jong un style order to american companies. What did you stop doing business with china right now. Name companies take their stocks. Does he have such a power. We have this arguing comfortable with the fact that donald trump can do whatever john roberts says he can do there and if y'all don't like that y'all should have gone to the mattresses garlic because that's why we're here now. The authority that trump is arguing that has is under something called the international emergency economic powers act it works much like the national emergencies act which means that when the president says i feel like mrs an emergency he gets wide latitude to do all kinds kinds of crazy things much like essentially planned economy like china would have the authority to do but there is an important supreme the first of all there's an important part of the statute which says that he can only declare the emergency the unusual and extraordinary circumstances china existing extraordinaire right. It's just a thing uh-huh so there's there's very little very little legally binding precedent to suggest that trump can declare national emergency and national economic emergency yeah based on china existing time to them have been used before was against iran when they took actual american hostages. That's the last time that's one of the last times this was used and and they're a supreme court precedent on that one of william rehnquist's most famous decisions is upholding the presidential authority to do whatever he wants to stop iran dan but very limited to the situation where iran has taken aggressive unusual extraordinary action against american citizens. There's nothing to suggest that that's what china has done right and if john roberts understands that there's nothing to suggest that trump can get this done well. It's john harwood. I'm gonna go to you next because i did varo the c._n._b._c. tweets which was extraordinary. I was watching it on twitter. It was happening and there are the markets up with the market's down. Oh my god he's taking like it happened in order on this same issue clearly clearly someone told donald trump hey in nineteen seventy seven thousand nine hundred seventy seven act that is ellie points out was used against iran. Maybe you can use that against china or maybe they said f._d._r. Doc was able to make steel companies make planes right and so he thinks he can just do it because somebody told them i doubt he's ever read the history that we just espoused right right and the question is donald trump a willing to invoke emergency powers and sanction american companies as the united states sanctioned iran in the hostage crisis or this law was also used to freeze assets in the war on terror after nine eleven is he gonna put u._s. U._s. multinationals in that bucket and treat them that way.

"Will we find out about his investigations into Russian interference and obstruction of justice after he's had his say will make room for yours I'm Joshua Johnson join me this evening for one a special coverage after Robert Muller testifies before Congress and you're gonna hear that at seven o'clock this evening here on KQED public radio eighty eight point five FM this is market place I'm chi result as of Monday according to the department of the treasury the government of the United States is in debt to the tune of twenty two trillion twenty two billion six hundred and sixty nine million two hundred and three thousand seven hundred and twenty nine dollars and thirty three cents I told you that so I can tell you this the house and Senate are set to vote on a budget deal in the next week or so a budget deal that will increase our indebtedness over the next couple of years and about which John Harwood of CNBC also one of our Freddie regulars has some thoughts the first of which is that the Republican Party somehow keeps losing these budget fights Johns good to talk to yeah great to be here can we now say with this budget deal that appears set to pass that the the GOP the Republican Party as the party of fiscal restraint is now officially over and done with yes although that's been true for some time they were over and done with when they passed that big tax cut a couple of years ago what we see is that the Republican Party is publicly committed to spending cuts but not actually committed to it they were willing to for the fourth time roll back the spending caps that they had imposed on president Obama in twenty eleven and there have not taken up the issue they say must be dealt with which is the curbing entitlements president trump says we're not doing that and they remain committed to cutting taxes and that is a formula for the return of trillion dollar deficits and that's exactly where we are where we are why then does the GOP keep coming up on the political short and as it were of these budget fights because what Democrats are defending our services that exist because people want them people want their social security and Medicare benefits and in the discretionary parts of the budget the parts that were just the subject of this deal they want transportation spending they want N. I. H. and health and scientific research spending and they also want a safety net for people of modest means and so you're defending things like a low income housing subsidies and childcare subsidies and health care all these are things that were passed into law because they were much was majority support for them what Republicans do is support spending cuts in theory but when it comes to actually fighting over taking away services that exist the public doesn't want that Republicans know it and they back away we should be clear that there is a slice of the Republican Party in Congress the calls this the all the train wreck that it's just horrible right but the people who describe it as a train wreck take some of the other actions that we're talking about and I was talking to a Republican strategist the other day who said this is a winning outcome for those members because the spending takes place it's it's past their constituents continue to get the services that the government is providing and they get to portray themselves as the defenders of fiscal responsibility as an argument for re electing them so that's it the political cake and eat it too type of argument but is what some Republicans think about there is no small irony here in that it was Republicans who obliged president Obama in two thousand eleven to agree to the budget control act the sequester and now with those tax cuts of two thousand seventeen that you talked about have have hamstrung their ability to stick to their guns as it were that's right and remember this is a consistent pattern over a number of years every Republican president since Ronald Reagan has seen the budget deficit increase on his watch every democratic president and we're talking there about Bill Clinton and Barack Obama has seen the budget deficit decline that is being repeated under president trump and the question is is there going to be after president trump a Republican Party that returns to claim the fiscal responsibility mantle they once talked about pretty consistently but it's not there right now John Harwood of C. N. B. C. and every now and then on Friday this program John thanks a lot of research done my pleasure it can take time to develop the skills you'll need.

As part of the the show nightshift show that we're doing really quite something. I never sleeping. We've got a lot of topics. John we've decided we've decided we work all week. Then we sleep the entirety of the weekend should pretty much. And then we get back at it on Monday, which is really Sunday night into Monday. Basically Saturday part of Sunday morning. Yeah. I'm only about about one hundred fifteen one hundred twenty hours before I go to sleep. It's a good thing. Then say, look, it's important. You find yourself. You get to that place, we super focused Alibaba. What does that the nine nine six nine six nine? What was his rule the Alibaba guy from China, the the? Channel nine nine six people to work like in ninety nine hours six days a week or something. It's just crazy. I think it was actually I think it was only twelve hours six days a week. Only just amateurs, John. They can't keep up with us. Japan or they're literally killing themselves who they're crazy, man. Here's the thing. There is no more time time off. I mean, nobody has time off anymore. It's about it's about working. And it's about getting getting focused on the stuff that really matters out there. And that's that's hugely important. But let me let me go over to this just to kind of cleanse the palate a little bit just kind of break it up a little bit of I can't tell you the number of calls. I literally cannot tell you the number of calls. We get each week. People in this audience. They have an affinity, and they wanna hear from Jerry Nadler, and Jerry Nadler had an opportunity to sit down and have a meal with John Harwood who. Arguably, my least favorite person in all of the media's history, John Harwood. John Harwood is just a horrible human being that you're going to give him props for John Harwood. John Harwood was the guy who famously said to Trump how how are you going to handle this cartoon like presidency of yours? And then he looked at at Ted Cruz that very famous line we Ted Cruz. Would you wanna say about your fellow candidates and Ted Cruz goes down through the whole list of all the candidates in the question, and he nailed it like point for point. And he goes I have an audio graphic memory. John harwood. They had the remember they had the CNBC they'd one debate very early on. And then writes previous Sean Spicer came out and said NBC gets nothing from the Republicans ever again. You're locked out. So John Harwood is now down to having launch. Right. Well, they he ordered lunch. I don't know if you've got to eat it. I think Jerry Nadler, Jerry Nadler's, very enthusiastically eating lunches, they talked about how they're going to do in Donald Trump and the obstruction of Justice and all the stuff like that. So you don't even need to see this. Because frankly, it's four thirty seven in the afternoon. You don't wanna see this? I watched it for you. But here's a little taste literally and figuratively of Jerry Nadler, he's Chow down on a half, a loaf of French bread. And he's drinking Jain Ormuz. Coke. It's just it's boom Babo six six other courses sitting around the table to. All right. So let's hear from Nadler into Harwood.

"Didn't is a liar. Now, we're not gonna agree to disagree here. We're going to then I'm in a mood. I'm exhausted by the garbage out. There was John Harwood over CNBC Trump hater. No wonder Trump's GOP tax cut is so popular just seventeen percent of Americans think their taxes were cut. According to NBC, Wall Street Journal poll. Why would only seventeen percent of Americans think that they got more money in their paycheck. This is true for millions upon millions of Americans. Why would seventy percent of Americans say that maybe it's because there have been a tremendous number of Democrats lying through their teeth about this. Oh, I didn't get as much of a refund. That tax thing was a scam. Wasn't a scam you pay less, of course, you've got less of a refund. What's wrong with you? Do you not know how mathworks and the answer is? Well, maybe they don't hot mouth works. Or maybe it's a purposeful admits. Matthew yglesias a variant leftist? Over at the website, vox dot com. Tweeting out. Nobody likes to give themselves credit for this kind of messaging success. But progressive groups did a really good job of convincing people that Trump raise their taxes. When the facts say, a clear majority got a tax cut. Translation, progressives lie to move narrative over facts and are thrilled. When the lies are successful suck chumps. That's what he said. It is it is pride in lying to you. I'm Tony cats. No lies here. Tony cats today. Eight three three got Tony eight three three four six eight eight six six nine every time a guy like Matthew yglesias opens his mouth guys like me. Find a bigger audience. Because why would you ever trust anything? Matthew yglesias says? Why would you don't even know Matthew yglesias? Matthew yglesias has been a longtime leftist and a a sickening fellow truly sickening fellow. But even if you didn't know who he was listen to the tweet, nobody likes to give them, by the way. When I say listen to the tweet understand. Matthew yglesias is four hundred twenty three thousand followers. He's got popularity people. He's got an audience. Nobody likes to give themselves credit for this kind of messaging success. But progressive groups did a really good job of convincing people that Trump raise their taxes when the facts say a clear majority gotta tax cut. He is proud to lie to you. He hates you. And every time some guy like him exposes himself, a guy like me picks up five more people. And I couldn't be thrilled. Welcome. Welcome to the show..

"But I stand by them. She's going to have to talk about that more fully. Yeah. Absolutely. Okay. Let's let's talk Beto versus really on. I more interest and then to John Harwood who is going to have a stronger pull on Texans Maria tries. A you have an organization called Voto Latino, obviously Latinos he is going to try to appeal to the hearts of the Tino voters, very important to the critic party of tickly young Latino voters. But so is better and is also going for the black folks Beto is sitting down with Oprah. He's having his Oprah moment on February fifth because he's run into that's going to air on own. I was joking with folks he's been so aggressive about with the African American neck where he African American voters. He's probably gonna be on I on ethics my life, very soon. He's going so hard who's going to have a stronger tug on Texans and on Latino voters between those two now, I think they both actually encompass what Texas is the new Texas and that is enfranchising swath of Texans that have been not been Representative. If you look at who the Texas voters were in this past midterm election. They were disproportionately young they were disproportionately people of color. They were independent women. The. It was it was an exciting time for Texas. And I think that they both have a shot. But when you start looking at what is going to be the broad base of the this new this new presidential cohort that we're going to see to. It's the very first time that we're going to have a cohort of of potential presidential candidates that look like the American voter that look like America, and that is a huge win. But before we get, and I know you love this topic. But before we get to far out in order for a democrat, regardless of who it is has a chance at winning the Democrats in the house have to be able to put some points on the board. They have to be able to pursue policies that really resonate with the American public. So that they're able to differentiate what makes them different versus what is Trump because it's not enough to be anti Trump and to the cat camel point, if she's running she shuttered her her fund raising her fundraising account, most recently and reallocated the senatorial campaign and reallocated it to different groups, including an immigrant rights group. African American group. She's also from my understanding is also looking for office space in Baltimore reading. Absolutely, yes. She's going to announce she has to be coy. I I hear on Martin Luther King day. I wouldn't be with mourners done something similar in terms of spreading the money around let people know that she's capable of fundraising and capable of sharing John Harwood. One of the things that I think a lot of people are thinking is that all of this is very exciting. And if Joe Biden gets in it becomes a completely different race because he would blot out a lot of the fundraising, son. It looks like he's at least very interested in writing. He's run for president several times in your view does he wind up getting in. And if he gets in what does he do to the race? I'm gonna make a guess that he does not end up getting in. I think he's looking at it seriously. But I don't think he would blot out the fundraising son. I think the bigger picture joy is when you step back, and look, you know, the scenes in a movie where there's a big lock on a door and the law enforcement comes and detonates bomb and blows it wide open democratic. Grace is blown wide happen in terms of gender in terms of age in terms of ethnicity. I think that you know, in the twenty eighteen election, we had a gay man elected governor of Colorado. We had a by sexual woman elected Senator from Arizona. Anybody could catch lightning in a bottle and win. This thing we all have instincts about who that person might be on your beta question to Maria Theresa..

"Here's the key sentence to me many involved in the case viewed Russia as the chief threat to American democratic values. David, ultimately, that's what this comes down to. Yes, we use the word meddling into Fearance intervention. Russia attacked American democracy in the two thousand sixteen campaign. They attacked it with social media. They tacked it by hacks and releasing material that arguably had an impact on the election itself. They did. So with two. The to disrupt and cause American democracy to look messy, and at some point they also decided helping Trump would be part of their aims as well. So this was information warfare. This is the most serious matter that one can think of because it attacks the foundation of our society, and yet Donald Trump has never come to terms with this Republican party in general has not had a reckoning and realize that this was a monumental act. And I think what we've seen is one of the biggest scandals in the history of of America yet, we get distracted. We'd talk about Donald Trump's tweets. And so I can only imagine what it was like inside the FBI all this time when they worried about the Russian attack, and then he interactions between the Trump crowd, and the adversary that was attacking a US election, gentlemen. Thank you for helping me kick off this hour in such a meaningful way. You're analysis is indispensable. David corn is Washington bureau chief for mother Jones and the co author of remarkable book called Russian. Let Glenn Kirshner is a former federal prosecutor Frank Montoya's. A retired FBI senior senior executive who served in counterintelligence. I've got an all star cast for you for the rest of the night to determine what is going on. Here. We've got more analysis of this bombshell. New York Times report ahead of Nance an expert on the Russian Email theft and from Niro tan than it was targeted by the attack in her role in the Clinton campaign. From what you know as of now, what you've learned about the president of the United States. So far do you trust Donald Trump at the national security United States? I absolutely do not that was democratic congressman Jim Himes, a member of the house intelligence committee last hour right here on MSNBC reacting to the breaking news report from the New York Times at the FBI opened an investigation days after former FBI director James Comey was fired into whether President Trump was secretly working on behalf of Russia. Joining us now near a and president of the center for American progress. Malcolm, Nance, MSNB, MSNBC counterterrorism and intelligence analyst, and John Harwood CNBC editor at large thanks to the three of you for being here. Telling me through this, Malcolm, let me just start with you one of the things I really think it's important that people read this article, it's it's well researched. And it's it's long, but one of the things in the New York Times report is quoting from Lisa page. The former FBI lawyer who said in the Russian federation and President Putin himself. You have an individual whose aim is to disrupt the western alliance. And whose aim is to make western democracy more fractious in order to weaken, our ability, America's ability and the West's ability to spread our democratic ideals. That's from Lisa page. Former bureau lawyer she told house investigators that in private testimony that the New York Times got its hands onto that seems to have been central to why the FBI decided to launch a counterintelligence investigation. They really were fair. Fearful our nation's top law enforcement officials were fearful that the president of the United States might be working in Russia's interests. Well, she's absolutely right. And I wrote an entire book about it. That's right lock to destroy democracy. And it was precisely about this. There's an entire chapter on how Russia co-opted Donald Trump two years ago this month. I sat on MSNBC that this nation at some point was going to enter a Benedict Arnold moment. And it had to exist all of the actions. The behaviors all the information that we had back in September twenty sixteen we saw that Donald Trump was working in the interest of Russia and not in the interest of the United States. The FBI counterintelligence division would had to have taken this into consideration at some point. But the fact that they did it right after the firing of Komi is only good defensive measures by loyal patriots of the United States whose job it is to root out foreign spies and foreign assets..

"About about global growth in particular. I think that's becoming the main focus and trade negotiations which are related to that. And I'll just say that we're we're listening carefully to that listening. Sensitively to the message that markets are sending and we're going to be taking those downside risks into account as we make policy going forward. It sounds a whole lot John Harwood like Palestine and the markets. Look, we got your back, man. That's all right. Yes, he is. But there's interesting cross-currents here because the strength of the jobs report suggests the underlying economy is doing pretty well as J Paul has indicated before and so what is that going to do independently of concern about market sensibilities? Does that encourage the fed in the next couple of months to say, yes, this economy is strong enough to take a little more normalization of interest rates. Linda, let me turn to something that the chairman talked about ready the top of that clip, the global economy a lot of news this week at a China and the feds keeping an eye on that. And that is contributing to some of the unrest that we've had in the market's volatility. Absolutely, you know, and in fact, Chinese China's Chinese policymakers just took a step to ease financial conditions in there in the country today, they know that it's not just a trade war the underlying conditions of the Chinese economy, look weak, and that's. Is going to have reverberations, especially Oliver, Asia and Australia. So the global economy is looking weak emerging markets are looking week. The United States has been known to kind of, you know, avoid some some global burps and bumps, but with China the size that it is right now we've never seen a protracted slowdown from the number two economy in the world as it is as integral and powerful as it is right now. All right. So John, let me get to that interesting moment that I that I sort of talked about setting up the introduction to this interview. We are at a moment in this economy. Now where the stock market is volatile aware in the middle of a trade war the government obey the way is shut down. And we have a president who says things that are not grounded in economic reality. He talks about the Chinese paying billions of dollars because of the tariffs that he's putting into effect which is simply not true. We talked about the new NAFTA resulting in billions of dollars flowing into this. And we'll help pay for the wall, which is also not grounded. In reality. What are those of us in the fact based business of explaining the news to do when he does that? Well, it's challenging because so many of the things that come out of the president's mouth are not true, and you've got to pick and choose what your targets are going to be. But we're seeing the way markets are processing now that his legal and political peril is increasing democratic control the congress Muller investigation proceeding. There's more and more concerned about the stability of his policy is he in fact, going to try to vindicate his campaign promises about getting tough with China. Even if it continues to destabilize markets, my bet is he will not, but there's a new delegation going over for trade talks in Beijing next week. What is that going to produce? I suspect it will produce a little bit of an ease off designed to reassure markets. But we don't know. That's that's actually interesting. Yeah. Go ahead. And then there isn't there a lower level delegation heading over there. To it's not it's not the trade Representative lighthizer, right? It is number twos. And so we're going to set up we're gonna see maybe setup setting up for for talks for the Americans feeling out the strength of the Chinese right now. You know, again there is is not doing well. And so we'll look to that in and I'm and I'm sorry to interrupt. But but before we ran out of time. I totally forgotten. I wanted to ask you guys about Kevin Hassett. The chairman of the council of economic advisers at the White House who came out yesterday and said, yeah, apple declared, a an earnings warning this week, and they're going to be more companies that do that. He also said though, Lynette look this is going to force the Chinese the table because they're in a weaker position than we are. Do you buy that line coming out of the president's chief economic adviser? Do I buy that where they're in a weaker economical and the and that's going to force them to the table. Do. I do I buy that. It'll force them to table. Now. I mean, the things that they are prioritizing the things that they want or that the United States wants from China for them to slow their plans for them to change the way that they deal with joint ventures in American technology. It just doesn't seem like they are going to give Americans the answers that the Americans want and. It doesn't seem like they're going to give the Americans the kind of ability to see into the economy that the Americans are going to want to verify that the Chinese are actually keeping the word, John Harwood. He's made big Chinese may be in a weaker economic position. But they're in a stronger political position, given President Trump's on popular. Sure, John real quick just because you're in Washington talk to me about this shutdown which the president said today, and honestly, you've got thirty seconds to do this. The president said could go year who knows? It will not go a year. My guess is that it won't go much more than a week next week would be the next scheduled pay period for a federal workers. And I do think we're beginning to see Republicans get uneasy with the idea of hanging in with President Trump keeping the government closed while they fight over this wall that most of them know is never going to be built along the two thousand miles of that border.

I mean, the things that they are prioritizing the things that they want from the that the United States wants from China for them to slow their plans for them to change the way that they deal with a joint ventures in American technology. It just doesn't seem like they are going to give Americans the answers that the Americans want and. It doesn't seem like they're going to give the Americans the kind of ability to see into the economy that the Americans are going to want to verify that the Chinese are actually keeping the word, John Harwood. He's made a Chinese may be in a weaker economic position. But they're in a stronger political position, given President Trump's unpopularity absolutely for sure John real quick just because you're in Washington talk to me about the shutdown which the president said today, and honestly, you've got thirty seconds to do this. The president said could go year who knows? It will not go year. My guess is that it won't go much more than a week next week would be the next scheduled pay period for a federal workers. And I do think we're beginning to see Republicans get uneasy with the idea of hanging in with President Trump keeping the government closed while they fight over this wall that most of them know is never going to be built along the two thousand miles of that border.

"Carl result is Friday today gang the fourth of January good is always to have you along everybody three hundred and twelve thousand is the number of the day on this Friday. The number of new jobs added to this economy last month. It was as you've heard, I'm sure way more than anybody was guessing. But also it lands in an economy that does seem to be kind of an interesting moment. So that moment in the context of the five days gone. By is where we start today when Lopez is at business insider, John Harwood is with CNBC everybody. Hi chi. So let let me start with you. The jobs report today. Unadulterated good news. I know alternated great news three hundred twelve is more than anyone thought. It's just kind of a weird noisy number since the manufacturing index. The. Earlier this week came in looking pretty sad. So we're continuing to get these mixed messages from data and also we have to remember, you know, holiday season. We'll get a lot of jobs December's, a job heavy month tend to be pretty positive so. There is that season -ality, John I want to turn to you and the Federal Reserve for a minute, and I'm going to play a piece of tape here from J Paul the chairman of the Federal Reserve doing an event down in Atlanta at the American economic association. He was on stage with Janet Yellen banenky, or in the New York Times asking him some questions, and and Neil said, basically, so look did maybe you get it wrong in your last press conference back in December. When you said, we're going to, you know, maybe think about keep on raising rates and the markets didn't like that very much. Here's what Paul said markets are expressing concerns again.
