Democrats projected to retain control of the House of Representatives
"Of course, they believe they've got a Biden win as well. A CZ I want to take control of both houses of Congress. So far, Democrats have gained one seat. Cory Gardner, the Republican Colorado conceded to the former governor. A moment ago, I spoke to Senator elect John Hickenlooper to congratulate him on his victory tonight. To welcome him to the United States Senate and to make sure that he knows I will support him in this transition anyway, that I can. That flip is somewhat canceled out, though, is the Alabama Senate seat held by Democrat Doug Jones went to the very pro Trump retired football coach Tommy Tuberville in Arizona. While it appears the seat held by incumbent Republican Martha McSally is going to the Democrat, former astronaut Mark Kelly. Exactly said it was too soon to make that call. Kelly himself said he's confident but that votes were still being counted. Some seats are definitely staying in Republican hands. Joni Ernst is keeping her Iowa seat. Lindsey Graham is keeping his seat in South Carolina. Jessica Rosenthal Fox News, however,
It's Election Day. Take a breath. Here's what to expect.
"Politics. And this landscape in particular, Wendy Schiller joins us. She of Brown University, of course on a friend to the program, and Teo Is the station with the chair of political science again at Brown University. Wendy, What is your base case? No. I just get right to it. I think here's what I think will will know from some congressional races, I think, signaling earlier than even the presidential races. We know that there's a lot of people who are elected in 2018 in what we call competitive swing district like Virginia, for example. Leave Illinois. We have a couple of races in Texas that look really tight and are surprisingly competitive. We have a couple of Minnesota, you know if things start to swing in congressional district sooner. For the Democrats. Then you start to think, Okay, maybe buy will have a very good night. But, you know, we'll know about Florida will know about North Carolina will know about Arizona, and we'll know about Georgia, probably, but before midnight tonight, and if all of those swing for Trump If Trump looks really healthy in those states and looks like he could win, then I think things get very, very dicey for Biden, so that's a big sort of vomit or buying only when one of those states You know, one of those four states or look like he's in the lead in a considerable lead in one of those states for him, that sort of have a more relaxed night. But if he if Trump wins, all of Omar looks like he's going to win all of them, I think that that tells us that this sort of blue wave we thought might emerge isn't going to emerge the same way. So, Professor. How do you think the Senate will shake out is there in fact, you know the market's kind of suggesting here today that a blue wave may in fact be in the cards? How do you think that might go in the Senate? That that that's a great question, Paul because you think about the Senate, and you think you know Mitch McConnell is totally immune. This time, you would have thought if there's a big blue wave. You know, The guy has really been the poster boy for the campaign against the Republicans controlling the Senator Mitch McConnell. He's goingto probably breeze to reelection, some a little suspicious of that big blue way for the Senate. Iowa looks neck and neck. You know, we had a recent poll. That's very credible that looks like Joni Ernst can pull it out and stay. You know if Cal Cunningham can win in North Carolina That suggests probably that the Democrats might get 51. If they can win Maine as well. Probably away in Arizona. Probably gonna win Colorado and lose Alabama, so they're looking at probably minimally a 51 49 Republican, or 50, 50 51 49 Democrats. So I think that's where they you know, we don't know. And I think that's where North Carolina becomes so important, even even if we don't know by Trump. You know, it's Cal Cunningham looks like he's really gonna win that race that suggest better things. The Democrats across the board for the Senate Say some of that again. When do you say Arizona is definitely going to go Democrat Texas? What did you say about Texas? And then also, I think, Arizona for Mark Kelly. I think he's been polling very consistently ahead of Martha makes alley. But you can imagine, let's say people voting for more. Kelly, a former astronaut. You know and not voting for Joe Biden. You know, voting for Kelly because they want him over more than Sally and they voted for Trump in Arizona. You didn't see the Democrats winning Senate in Arizona but not winning the presidential race. Then Texas is, you know, shocking right? The turnout in Texas has been absolutely shocking. And but it looks like John Cornyn comfortably ahead of head guard that the challenger there, But I think the issue is that Trump is only basically one point ahead in Texas, which is just you know, if you think about politics, just stunning. Same with Georgia. George will be interesting because it does not get 50% or more against us off. Then you've got to run off elections in Georgia in January, and I think that's really going to be some interesting voting dynamics, so it's possible the Senate Democrats could ultimately end up with a 51 of 52 majority, but I still think it's a bit of a long shot. So Professor if the presidential election becomes contested, what is your kind of base case for how it may play out? I think we could be faced with an unprecedented historic situation. I think you know if we have a tie, for example, if in the Electoral College in December's actually a tie, it goes to the newly elected house, which is expected Thio more Democratic. However, the Republicans still control more votes in state delegations than the Democrats, and that's Probably isn't going to change so you could conceivably have literally the house electing a re electing President Trump but in the Senate. If it's 51 49 with the new Senate and its new Democrats, then they may like Tomahawk. Advice. I mean, really, quite stunning. It's really stunning thing. So I think so many things have changed already in 2020 weather, Trump gets reelected or not, is obviously monumental. But even if he gets reelected, I think the Democrats have shown they know how to mobilize voters, and I think they've shown some of these states have changed a lot in terms of demographics, and they are going to be more competitive, moving forward. Which changes the nature of politics going to 2022. If we know that politicians look at the next election the minute this election is over, and so when we start to think about what the balance of power might be in the Senate house in 2022 these gains the Democrats appear to be making among voters in the states. Changes a lot of dynamics, which will probably change some of the policies coming out of Congress. Yeah, I mean, it's really the African American gold, right, Wendy and how much more of that will see? We're already seeing, you know, a lot more engagement. Yeah. So I think African American who has always been key in North Carolina and Georgia had about 64% African American turnout in 2016. It wasn't enough because those numbers were not hit in in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania among African American voters, and they, you know they may or may not get there. If they get there, I think Biden winds relatively easily. But what's interesting is suburban white women. Of all educational levels seem to be really vehemently at the moment against Trump in the polls, and it could be that instead of the black vote really being key in the Midwest, it ends up being white women. Which would be really interesting shift, you know, mirrors 2018 when white, the majority of white women voted for democratic candidates, But it would change the nature of the Democratic coalition. If that were the deciding factor, So that's what I'm looking for. I'm looking for turnout, particularly in particular counties in Michigan. Well, we still have. A lot of people are gonna vote in person and certainly in Pennsylvania when you were really out of time. But I am desperate to

"And if they're becomes a greater narrative that hey, this is going to be a by victory. I'm always skeptical of the idea that voters approach voting very strategically. But you could see a world where some of those look, I don't like trump. I'm gonna vote for by, but I don't want him to also have a Democratic Senate. So I will vote for Tom Tillis or Joni Ernst er, Martha McSally or whomever to try to create some balance. So we have the final debate tonight. We only had two instead of three because of this call to get rid of a second debate, even though Trump was already immune to covert at the time of that debate, do you? It seems like so much of this is already baked into the cake that people have their opinions of Trump. They they love him or hate him. There's not a lot of variability on that particular question and justice in 2016. It seems like if there is going to be any variability, it's gonna be on the other side of the ball. It's going to be more about How people feel about the Democrats. So in 2016 Hillary was bouncing around in the approval ratings between 40 and 50% and then ended up low. Biden has been very, very stable in that particular department, but he really has not had a glove late on him thus far, and Trump obviously blew an opportunity in the first debate to do that. Do you think that the Hunter Biden scandal makes any difference at all? And is it sort of Trump's last hope? Because, well, people are saying, Well, what if he just presents a positive vision of his of his presidency? It seems like that maybe a little bit late in the game do that two weeks before the election. I'm skeptical of the 100 Biden story effects many voters who are still on the fence because it's not an issue that affect someone's personal life directly. Every minute they spend talking about 100 myth. Biden is a minute they're not spending talking about Trump's economic record, and that is far and away. The best thing he has going for. 56% of Americans say that they're better off than they were four years ago. I think trying to drag down by his favorability number this late in the game. It's just too late for it to work. They've tried to throw everything at him on bright Now, you know if you look at that data as you mentioned, I just wrote a column for the Washington Examiner..

Is Mitch McConnell Rigging The Game?
"Other news, there's the other branch of Congress or the other house. Of Congress. The Senate and everyone knows their Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is unshakable and ruthless, and he's going to maximize his power however cam, but it is also the case the death of Justice Ruth Bader GINSBURG has taken us to uncharted territory. There are very real political pressures that are going to affect how the next several months play out. Mitch McConnell does not care about being charged with the Crisi but the raw politics of this moment themselves are not uncomplicated. As it was with the affordable care act remember Mitch McConnell had a lot of bravado about that and he failed famously and humiliatingly to replace the law. Here's mayor discuss across pressures. He faces longtime McConnell Allah Gist Jane Mayer Chief of Washington correspondent New Yorker wrote an incredibly insightful profile McConnell back in April this weekend row quote from Mitch McConnell keeping a Senate. Majority matters more than the Supreme Court. Jamie. It's great to have. Let's start with that because it seems to me there's two imperatives here. Everyone says about McConnell the two things he cares about is keeping the Senate majority and being Senate majority leader. Judges the Federal Bench, and there is a way to interpret the politics of the moment that there's a little bit attention between those two imperatives. How do you see it? Well, I mean there is I mean he wants to get obvious wants to hold the majority wants to stay being majority leader. And, this is going to be the crowning moment of his career to have yet one more justice on Supreme Court here we can get him through and he's promised trump of course that he's going to have a vote on this, and so how do you do this the problem? The problem for McConnell is it's unclear if he can keep the majority in the Senate. It's a dicey election year for him. There are a number of racist. They're very close and he doesn't want to do anything that's going to hurt the endangered members of his caucus. So he's got to try to juggle the schedule in some way that doesn't put those members on the spot in a way that will hurt them. So he's the first thing he's going to do an, and surely his done is canvas. Those members find out exactly how they feel about how this this process would affect their races. And then, and then way that in terms of whether it be better have a vote before or after the election. So. It's it's. It's. It's it's tricky but he is nothing if not clever about things like this this is he he? Very early on in his career, he ran for office from a district where he hadn't been resident in residence long enough and he vowed after that, he would never again ignore the rules, and since then he's become kind of a master of the rules, the more arcane the better. And he just he loves talking to the parliamentarian in the Senate and figuring out sort of the the most devious ways to get what he wants. The most sort of obvious pressure here. Just talking about this and I think it's pretty interesting. There's a bunch of folks who are up. In who are imperilled where it's not clear That going ahead with this would be helpful them. We have a bunch of pulling out today showing majority of people oppose it. Those numbers will probably change as they converge towards the polarization and everything else. But like Cory Gardner is down in all the polls and Colorado, he's in a state that Democrats have carried. Now a bunch and plan to carry again Martha. mcsally sally is down a to mark Kelly. You know they're on the sort of aggressor side here in terms of public opinion. It does seem like they've kind of don't care. It doesn't seem like there's a jump together mentality here in terms of getting them to come out whether it was him or not a publicly for those. Well I think. He's GonNa. Be Looking at McConnell will look at each of these races and I think you can almost imagine that he's written off. Gardner in. Colorado, and makes out the in Arizona. So he's not going to change his plan just for them unless he thinks it's going to save them and you'd probably thinks it won't save them and he's already given collins kind of buy in Maine. So it gets you down to the racist that are really going to matter in this are probably it's it's probably Tillis in North Carolina, Joni Ernst in Iowa, and Danes in in Montana, and if McConnell feels that those three or not endangered by going head, he may just gun it. You know and and try try to get I think though that in addition to just thinking about each of these races and how it affects each of the races, there's something else. He's probably got to think about, which is the overall look of this thing if if it appears to the American public that he is one set of rules for Democrats and there's another set of rules he's got for Republicans here, one Senate rules for America and another set of rules for whoever trump nominates at this point, it looks like he's reading the game it looks corrupt. It looks like a naked power, grab an and it's ugly and that could actually create a backlash I think that both he and trump have to think about. It it might really bother a lot of people in this country to think that that it's it's just too corrupt game in Washington. Yeah, I. think that's a correct reading of both where the polls are and the political risks they run and I think it's notable that McConnell has committed to vote but not win and I thought. This was also notable. He wrote this dear colleague later re basically says I don't say anything don't lock yourself into position. Let it give it give us time to work over the coming days. We're GONNA come under tremendous pressure from the press to announce how he will handle the coming nomination for those who are unsure how to answer for those inclined to oppose giving nominee a vote I urge you all to keep your powder dry Dombrowski and collins. Have not heeded that but Mitt Romney said declined today saying anything I know Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania I fully expect will support moving forward. But that that to me, it was interesting because the timing here and the sort of needle to thread is not nothing I think we'll try to do it and the odds are in their favor they will. But because of exactly what you and unseeded from the political standpoint, it's not clear that this is help for them politically in the short term. I think it may not be I. Mean I think also it's going to energize the base on both sides here for and the thing is that when it comes to the energizing the base, the base that needs more energizing really is probably on the Democratic side and you've already seen it happen I, mean look at the amount of money that act Lou raise you know practically overnight a hundred, million dollars two, hundred and sixty. Now it's one hundred and sixty million dollars. Shipping shocking about money. Shocking money an and I think the other thing that it might do is from was doing some reporting two days. I think it may really energize kids younger voters because. You know they were kind of holding their nose, a lot of them about Joe Biden it wasn't an exciting. It didn't seem you now like there was that much reason to do it. Now there's a reason that a lot of young people are GONNA see they're gonNA look they're gonNa see Roe v Wade is in the balance they're going to see a four Bul healthcare act and possibly anything to do with insurance for preexisting conditions and they're looking at the future this is going to. Their. Lives for the this is a this is a decision that has tremendous implications for everybody in the country and it's GonNa be clear and so I, you know it may turn you know help turn out. The Democrats who were young. Six three Roberts court climate. Regulation jurisprudence. A. Favorable to the kinds of solutions. That are necessary. Do you think? Ultimately McConnell himself is up and I don't think he's. He's personally a lot of trouble against say, McGrath at least the pulling now but there are also just a bunch of seats that weren't supposed to be in play that really do seem like they are. There's A Texas poll that has cornyn barely up. There's a Mississippi poll out today that has. Chrissy Hyde Smith a just a few points on Mike espey. There's the Iwa Joni Ernst race I mean it's wild how wide the sort of battlefield has gotten for him to try to hold this thing together. It's it's really volatile and and and the thing is it. What it does is it puts the Republicans on the spot about they've been doing kind of a split that's broader and broader that gotta keep the trump face and and but that's not enough for in many places to get reelected, and so they've got to do is add in. The moderates the you know suburban women particularly and got a candidate here who for a nominee for the supreme court that is truly the choice of the evangelical part of the trump ace it by very much alienate moderate women in the suburbs and in other places especially over things like abortion where sixty two percent of the people in this country saver. Abortion. As keeping it legal and don't WanNa go backwards. So it's it's. It's I think it's a it's it's a it's a it's a risky thing for some ways. You people think it's all into such a gift. Not, necessarily think that's right. Read on the situation Jane Mayer thanks as always great reporting and inside appreciate it. Great to be with you.
Republican National Convention - Night 3
"We heard criticism from South Dakota Governor Christie Gnome who hit on the law and order issue. Talking about recent protests in major cities. There's looting, chaos, destruction and murder. People that can afford to flee have fled. But the people that can't good, hardworking Americans are left to fend for themselves. And, of course, Dmitry That's an issue that's been hit on hard by vice President Pence and President Trump. They have also been some positive messages tonight, one of them from outgoing White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway. That's right. Kellyanne Conway did not take partisan shots at the Biden campaign. Instead, she praised the president for giving women opportunities in government and his businesses, and she tried to point to a softer side of President Trump. I have seen firsthand many times. President comforting and encouraging. A child who was lost a parent. A parent who has lost a child. And that theme has been resonating throughout the night. The theme is America Land of Heroes, and There's been a lot of emphasis on that Iowa senator Joni Ernst, praising Iowans for dealing with flooding in a derecho. But she also said Joe Biden's ticket would hurt farmers. In fact, I can't recall an administration more hostile the farmers than Obama Biden unless you count the Biden Harris ticket, But

Trump rule could lead to big Medicaid cuts, governors warn
"Tell folks what has happened in terms of Medicaid in particular. I guess let's start way the way you did. What are the proposed cuts to Medicare that the trump administration the station has been talking about the proposed cuts to Medicare You know I think it started with their rollout of increased privatization of Medicare with increasing Medicare advantage. uh-huh Plans Kober last year in the lakes and Florida Trump you know reported in Vanity Fair that he said it would be fun. Second Term Project to cut Medicare and then in a couple of weeks ago now in Davos Switzerland he was talking. NCNB CNBC and he said Yesterday the fact that would be on the table cutting cutting Medicare in those social security and he said that would be the easiest thing to do very strange choice of words. So that's kind of the Medicare and that's what I started with. That's why I was in Des Moines that day with the committee to protect Medicare talking about these possible Medicare cuts with you know doctors from Iowa that join me for a press conference One Press When one member of the press showed up at that press conference now you know a little bit more of the presses is listening to the line that we're calling out at my committee about these proposed cuts it's And then you know because of the news of the day. Last Thursday was Davis encounter occurred in that was the day that Seema Verma the cms administrator for trump mm rolled out these Block grant Waiver proposal. That you know everyone I can see. That is talking about this. In an honest this way tells us this will cut folks from Medicaid. Okay and so tell us. CMS The centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services when they roll out this proposal are they actually just basically introducing. They're they're basically announcing that you can you as a state Can apply for a waiver. Is that right right. Apply for a waiver. Currently Medicaid is funded by the federal government on a kind of a per person per need basis. So you know. For instance when there's a recession and more people lose jobs and more people qualify for Medicaid. The federal share of spending on healthcare for those folks will go up because of course they need that you know people with diabetes if they have a job or they lose their jobs to no fault of their own still. Have they still need three hundred dollars a month insulin slim so with block grant States could say listen Why don't you just give us a lump sum of money? And then let us in the where he used was innovate let us innovate. Ah figure out how to cover anyone cover everyone but you know if the needs go up in our state. We still get that that pot of money that you're giving us it doesn't change and yet our needs go up so more people lose out the other thing they can do is choose to cut certain services they can you know cut certain drugs that are that are. Currently they covered up a prescription drug benefit under Medicaid. So I mean I mean it is just cut. There's no way around it. And there's no way that pence didn't understand that Seema. Burma used to be his Medicaid Administrator in the state of Indiana when he was governor there so this has been a conservative dream for for ages decades thirty years. They've been trying Graham. They've been trying to block grant and and so. There's there's like you say there's multiple problems that come with the block. Granting one is that it does not act as that economic stabiliser in other words doesn't doesn't Basically expand as the the need gets greater in crises. It also does not a increase along with the cost of medicine and And like you say the states can get sort of clever because the federal government has basically said I mean this is the difference between just sort of you know me me giving ten bucks to my kid and saying you know do whatever you want with it as opposed to making sure that she spends it on you know not on on junk food or whatever it is and and she can then go out and basically spend five bucks on the. I want to keep this metaphor too much but the idea is that they can use this money in other ways that I really don't have anything to do with providing health insurance for people right and my governor is Governor Gretchen. Whitmer who gave you know. I thought an amazing response to the state of the Union last night and I was there and we talked beforehand. And she's she helped. Uh sure in expanded Medicaid under the affordable care act when she was the minority leader of the State Senate here in Michigan and got a Republican governor to expand Medicaid. And we've had you know. Nearly three three quarters of million folks in Michigan Benefit from that Their study I think Carter. Kaiser family reported recently specifically Michigan showing the economic economic benefits of expanded Medicaid. The fear was that the federal government was going to give them a hundred percent in the first year and then scaled back to I think ninety percent of eventually by next year and the reality is even though the federal share has scaled back because people are healthier because they can afford treating their chronic illnesses. They can work more they. The actual tax base has increased. I think thirty thousand jobs in Michigan created directly resulted expanded Medicaid. So I you know this is. It just doesn't make sense to me that they try and and I think that's why he dodged the question and tried to revert back to things he did. And and then eventually just said agree to disagree because He knows what it is they. They held him what it is and they know if they say what it is. People won't like it you know. It's an election year. They're trying to get reelected so they just say whatever they want they lie will and state of the Union almost solely healthcare allies again about every other aspect of healthcare. And you know I think they just say what they want they get away with it. He just wasn't expecting to meet up with a guy in tyner who you know. I mean again. I don't know this issue like a policy. Wonk I mean I just I have a biology degree in a medical degree and I work clinically as a doc but I read you know and I and I try to learn as much as I can and so you know with my limited understanding of these policies he just. He wasn't ready for that one briefed them known gave them talking points. And I think that's. That's that's what we saw unfold. Yeah he did look like a deer in the headlights and we did try to dance around it quite a bit. You were pretty easy. Road brought in on them pretty quickly I think as he tried to sort of pretend like he didn't understand what you said the first thing. It just didn't that first exchange where you said. You're going to get cuts and Medicaid. 'cause I don't think we're GONNA do cuts in Medicare and so we'll give us. I mean So you know firsthand. The implications of this expanded Medicaid and and and I WANNA get into that as just your experiences as as an emergency doctor but I also get the sense. You're on this You're you're you're you're executive director of this committee you're in Iowa so you're aware at at least some of the you know the broader politics involved in this. Where would you anticipate what states or at least you know if not specific ones than the profile of the states eight? That are going to be applying for this waiver. I mean presumably the thirteen states. Now that did not expand Medicaid under the affordable. Care Act. I would imagine would be a prime targets or prime applicants to get this waiver. Because they're going to continue you. Say we're going to expand medicaid. They certainly are interested in dismantling it as much as they can right. I think that and I think you know anywhere that there is a Republican And I guess I have to. I don't know the nuances of the directive if it's if it's an executive decision at the state level or if it requires you know something passing through their houses so we have enough house majority Republican state legislatures plus governorships. In this country that I I mean I think that would be the profile. You know certainly because those will be the places where you know folks are more likely to be in charge that share vice president pence views on you know on Medicaid in general in a and and whether or not we should be helping out poor people when it comes to healthcare That that is that's the fear now. And why should we in Michigan you you know. Why should we in Michigan? Have a different set of. I mean the whole healthcare system. So Patchwork in Hodgepodge if you WANNA call it a system a series of systems. But it's so patrick work anyways I mean I guess why should this be any different. Let's let certain states do one thing and others do the other. And if you just happen to be born in Michigan versus Alabama. Well you know good on you right Well there's so much in our society today that's determined that way it's all just a coin toss and met. I guess maybe a bunch of coins get tossed in the air. What now? There's a vote tomorrow in the house. I Don I imagine you're familiar with it. And what the what the vote is is it's under the The CRA which has been used in the past to see the Congressional Review Act. It's been used in the past undo executive the actions that have been done within a certain timeframe and the Republicans did this with a bunch of executive actions by Obama and then once they do that once they pass that to reinstitute any type of rule like that Congress has to has to authorize it with a two thirds vote right so this is like this is a this is a real this is a sledgehammer as it were and they're going to. They're going to vote on this in the house and they will probably pass yes it which would not allow the president to block grant but then it goes to the Senate and the Republicans are sure to shoot it down. How do you think this plays as has a An issue in the fall when you have a half dozen or so Republican senators running in sort of purple states on their refuse their essential like voting to allow for cuts and Medicaid right. Yeah and I and I kind of anxious to see what folks looks like Like Collins I mean she seems the only one in the purple state that I think might make along with this I think you know tell us and and MC sally the and who is a gardener I think is already toast You know maybe Joni Ernst I don't know Yeah I mean I think at least I mean the thing is having having gone record. I mean that's That's I think that's all that's what we're trying to do as a committee. I mean what we're what we're rolling out over. The next. Several months is is an accountability campaign.

Trump says sexual assault accuser is not his "type"
"To high profile GOP senators now say New York writers newly revealed a sexual assault allegation against President Trump should be looked into sinners Mitt Romney of Utah, and Joni Ernst of Iowa said today, the assertions made by writer and advice columnists aging, Carol should be examined on the program last night. I talked at length with MS Carol who repeated her claim that two decades ago, the president sexually assaulted her and in New York City department store. She also reacted the president denying her accusation is saying, quote, she's not my type. I'm wondering the statement that he said, which is just made which is she's not my type number. Well, that was the number one thing that I'm not his type. Don't you love that you're not his type? He also called Miss Universe fat, miss piggy. I think he called her Miss Universe, one of the most beautiful women in the solar system, and he called her fat. Fifteen women over the years from now made sexual assault allegations against Donald Trump. One of those women is Jessica leads who went public with her claiming against the president during the closing weeks, the two thousand sixteen campaign, and it didn't take the president long to go after her. When you looked at that horrible woman last night, you said, I don't think so she would not be my first choice that I can tell. You don't know that would not be my first choice. Joining me tonight is Jessica leads. Just were you surprised to hear the president, essentially kind of using the same words against MS Carol that he used against you essentially talking about appearances that in that he's not not, she's not my type about Carol. I was not surprised. He is. Seven his ways, and he really needs a new script, but he's not going to change. It's interesting there with MS Carol that his first thing I mean, he said, I'm saying this with respect the first thing he said, is she's not my type, and then that it's just it's not true, and that, that she's lying, the idea that that's the first thing one would talk about is the appearance of the person is interest. Yes. Yeah. And that's, that's a common thread through all the other episodes, that have come to light. He lies so much that he really is incapable of, of recognizing this, the situation is as it really exists. I remember when you and I, I spoke back in October, it was of two thousand sixteen. You told me that you knew when you came forward that, that the president would would comment about. Your looks and that's intentionally why you when you came forward, you showed pictures of yourself when, when you were the age of the incident that you say, happened that was already in your mind. You knew that, so what he would do. Absolutely absolutely. My experience with men like Trump. They cannot see themselves in the mirror. They don't recognize their own aging. So they can't recognize the aging of other people of, of women, and they really basically are only attracted to younger women to young women. When when you came forward again, this was. In the during the campaign, and other people other women had had come forward and other women would come forward. We're used to prize by by the, the response and also by the lack of response. And I'm wondering if what you make of the response to miss carols, allegation, as well this the public response or lack thereof I was. Totally amazed at the response that I got because it one hundred percent support I never run into anybody who, who criticized my story or who gave me a hard time. I was surprised at this new. Story. That it got any attention at all. And. Thank you for giving it some time because it's, it's still an important issue. You said you had great interactions with people face to face. Obviously, there was a lot of coverage that, that was probably quite you know, that was questioning what you your allegations. Would you recommend that women come forward? Yes, I would encourage women if they feel strong enough, you know, we were so inculturated to made it our fault as did miss Carol, let the other night, shave, she took responsibility for being stupid enough to go into the dressing room.
Trump Brushes Off North Korea's Launch of 'Some Small Weapons'
"President Donald Trump tweeted part that North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people and others, but not me not seeming state of a union Republican, Senator from Iowa. Joni Ernst a member of the Armed Services Committee called those strikes. Disturbing. Say North Korea back off of those activities. And we need to take a very strong stance on that understanding, the president has a job to do negotiating, but we do need to push back on North Korea, and make sure that they are following UN guidelines. And that's very important. We can't continue to let them further develop any type of weapon systems
Pressure On China To Agree To Trade Deal
"Radio. Even though we have a lot of liquidity offline from may happy made if you are taking today off there still some selected assets that are trading and some important events to look ahead to US equity futures advancing then he had apples upbeat forecasts. Traders expecting lower volumes throughout the day. Then bit of movement coming through in terms of US equity futures higher. You've got a bit of movement on the ASX two hundred straight up about eight tenths of one percent. Other than that. It's pretty quiet on the equity side in terms of the handover overnight. We did have course, they Tekere innings more generally with apple but also a little bit of a well, it was a weight on the shoulders from Google corporate earnings and develop the trade conflict between the US and China remain front and center, that's for sure I mean, running through some of the currency pairs here. You're looking here the Bloomberg dollar index. That's just barely about the flat line here quiet on the Major's front. So I mean, pretty much all of these pairs unchanged. Eurodollar one twelve twenty Donnie in one hundred and eleven fifty and cable is up less than a tenth of one percent. Short of one thirty fifty five commodities are on the pressure a little bit. Brent crude Coney down six tenths of one percent. We have higher inventories out of the US and the initial data overnight. Gold is lower by three tenths of one percent. So the metals on the pressure let me run through some of the news as well. In terms of the corporate earnings because we are getting of course, quite a few fast and furious start off with Sainsbury's fiscal year revenue at twenty nine point zero one billion pounds. You're looking here at fiscal year sales of thirty two point four one billion pounds to final dividend. Shares going to be seven point nine Pence. Few notes on guidance year Sainsbury saying the consumer outlook continues to be uncertain and that they are well-placed to navigate the external environment. So that's on the Sainsbury's front more retail input from next currently first quarter retail sales coming through a negative three point six percent. The market was looking for actually more of a contraction here down six point two one percents of slightly better than some of the analysts had pencilled in. I go to online sales eleven point eight percents the estimate heroes for twelve point eight percent. And so a little bit of a little bit better on the retail sales. But a little bit short of estimates on the online sales on guidance. They're still seeing fiscal year pre-tax at seven hundred and fifty million pounds and still see full price sales at up one point seven percent. And then also on the economic front. We've got some UK April house prices. They're up zero point four percent on the month. That's the nationwide. Up zero point nine percent on the years that is some economic input as well. So that's a bit of a flavor then on what's happening with these corporate earnings. Let's get now to some of the stories we're watching very carefully starting off with what's happening with the United States and China. The White House is ramping up pressure on China to reach a trade deal in the next two weeks. Bloomberg daybreak Asia anchor Bryan Curtis has more from Hong Kong, the US said once again, he would walk away from the talks if no deal, Mick Mulvaney, President Trump's acting chief of staff said negotiations would not go on forever. So the administration is making its impatience known a slight shift from the earlier more optimistic messaging still going into talks today. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the US side had a nice working dinner last night with vice-president Leo hub, two of the quick notes. The F T says the US is likely to accept a watered-down commitment from China on security that to speed up a deal and. And Chinese regulators said today, both Chinese and foreign banks will no longer be subject to ownership caps on local banks Kong, Bryan Curtis. Bloomberg daybreak Europe. That means on world financial markets away. Today's Federal Reserve announcement on the US interest rates. Bloomberg's Michael Mckee has a preview. This fed meeting is widely expected to be a nun event except for that little possibility of a rate cut. No, not a policy cut to the fence target. But an adjustment to the rate of interest. The central Bank pays banks on excess reserves the effective federal funds rate traded a record five basis points above the excess reserves rate Tuesday most traders blamed technical rather than policy issues such as a rise in repo rates on other securities that suggests the fed doesn't need to do anything others note, though, it's been an ongoing problem and forecast a slight cut in the rake in Washington, Michael Mckee, Bloomberg daybreak Europe. And as the central Bank meant to weigh monetary policy. Donald Trump sought to pressure the fed to make drastic moves to boost and already healthy US economy in a pair of tweets Tuesday. Trump criticized the fed for having incessantly lifted interest rates and wonderfully low inflation Colfer steep interest rate cut and the resumption of bond purchases as well. The thing with the theme. The president's comments came as another political drama swirled around the central Bank on Capitol Hill Trump's plan nomination. He recalls Stephen Moore to the fed sports looks increasingly uncertain as a third Republican Senator voices downs. The story from Bloomberg's Charlie Pellett. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. A key ally of the president told reporters that Moore would be quote, a very problematic nomination, though, he has not made up his mind. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa and Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama on Monday voice. Their own concerns about more a Heritage Foundation fellow and a former Trump campaign adviser Ernst the senate's fourth ranking Republican told reporters, quote, I am not enthused about what he has said in various articles later, Monday Shelby. The former chairman of the banking committee said he thought the proposed nomination, quote has some problems Charlie Pellett. Bloomberg daybreak Europe. That's something singing. Singapore where Mark Cranfield and markets live team joins us, Mark. Let's start off with the mlive question of the day. The fed odds in terms of the likelihood of a move very contradictory and not really in line with what we're seeing the job market. Yes. Good morning, certainly the market by some as strong as it's been since the nineteen sixties in the United States pretty healthy condition. We've also saying some pretty good wage growth as well. Even though it hasn't really fit injuring flation too much. So Fava certainly in the GDP data from Las week, as well already know the picture is pretty healthy economy. We go to started go to the payrolls not becoming up on Friday, and the fed will certainly be thinking about this as well because it probably reinforce this very strong picture of job market. So when you have that in the background certainly makes a bit curious as to why the mock is getting so excited about the polls. Not of the fed may take the opportunity to to try and rain the market back in a little bit and try and get them back more to a neutral territory because of that. Let's talk about the greenback. It's climbed against all but three of its group ten currency peers and twenty nineteen to folks at TD North America point out that any further strengthening any wheat test of some of those twenty eighteen is could mean trouble for stocks can be trouble for high your credit and currencies as well. More. Generally. You're seeing that dollar bears can return to hibernation after the FOMC run me through your thinking. Yeah. So we had a little bit of softness in the dollar towards the individual pro, and that's not unusual this month and maneuvering which goes on. And it's quite often the case where people are just have to tidy things up in the came off a little, but the fundamental case for is is pretty hard to ignore right now, particularly against the emerging market currencies. You've got short term rates in America, which are very high in comparison to other g ten currencies relatively high compared to the emerging market world. Plus as we were saying this pretty strong background of data from the United States. And they made it very. Clear it's on a long-term polls here. So he's not really going to be going anywhere. We've monetary policy at the same time. There's other countries that want to lower interest rates in in Asia. We've had India of moved already we've got to Malaysia looking at it, South Korea looking at it Philippines, Indonesia, they're all heading towards lower rates environment. So that certainly from an investor's point to you. They're probably thinking that the fed is beginning to look like a high yield currency here. So we could save it. If a rebound once the fed is out the way people start looking ahead to Friday's jobs report. It's always a pleasure catching up. Thank you for stopping buying. It's Mark Cranfield. Remember the for real time market commentary and analysis to markets. Lifelock. That's the only Bloomberg terminal.

Senate Republicans see the national emergency vote as a one-time break with Trump
"That of the twelve Republican senators who did not vote with the president who voted to disapprove his declaration of a national emergency. Only one of them is running in twenty twenty. There was a risk on both sides. Right. There's the general election risk because the emergency is unpopular and the walls unpopular, but among Republicans. It's these things are very popular. And obviously, I think a lot of Republicans showed that they were more concerned about winning their primaries than they were about the general election. Who do you have in mind is it Thom Tillis North Carolina who took a lot of heat for that our switch of his vote, Thom Tillis in North Carolina. Cory Gardner in Colorado. Joni Ernst in Iowa all of them voted with the president. And not with the the the twelve Republicans like Mitt Romney. And and Pat Toomey, Mike Lee and others who had these constitutional concerns about what the president's doing. Mark. Mick Mulvaney, was on this program and said that he thinks the White House has nothing to worry about with this attempt to override the veto. But how was this received inside the White House was the president's first time to use the pen in this way? And it was also the first time the president was rebuffed this way by Republicans Ramesh points out that several of them didn't go the whole way. But the fact of the matter is after two years in which the Republicans have been just an absolute reliable sort of a bastion for the president and congress. I thought this was still symbolically important. And I'm sure that President Trump's argument is well, I didn't pitch as hard as I could have if I really asked for the votes, I would have gotten them. But nevertheless, they must be looking at this and thinking, do we have Mitch McConnell? As reliably as we thought we did and facing the prospect of more on popular potentially policy decisions debates down the road. Is this the first in what will be a more independent Republican majority in the Senate majority that's gonna make decisions not just blindly following the White House and President Trump? Some might say that's wishful thinking indeed, indeed stipulate that we haven't seen it. And we've had the same sort of discussion many many times in the past. Well, this'll be the moment that they show their independence. And they continue not to do that having said that, you know, this was a somewhat different set of circumstances. It didn't play out quite as well as I think the White House hoped it would. And so that's gotta be at least somewhat concerning for them. Do you think this resonates with people at home or is it lost on them? I do think it doesn't really resonate unless the president wants to resonate in. Which case what he does very well is turns it back against congress. I think he loves the idea that look I told you people in Washington didn't understand us in our vision for how we keep America safe. They're they're trapped in their old ways of thinking, I'm here to break us out of this. And so it actually works for him, even when it's members of his own party. I think this is very beneficial to him. And I I do agree that with the question of whether the signals more dissension or whether it's just this was a really easy vote. The veto. They're never going to have to vote on this again, they're not going to it's going to die in the house. Most likely they won't have to vote on this again. And then it's in the courts where ultimately means that none of the discussion that we're having right now may ever have to turn into

"I really want to talk about a the paid parental leave proposal the nominally conservative paid parental leave proposal that's coming out from Mike Lee and Joni Ernst because I think a lot of conservatives are getting this wrong. I think it's coming from a place of good intentions. I think it's a dressing a real problem. But this Bill just doesn't get it. Right. But but before we do that. I just have to show you one of the most glorious bits of tape that I have this was Alexandria, Casio Cortez, grilling. And questioning the CEO of Wells Fargo, Tim Sloan there, listen, she's had a lot of moments in her brief political career where she has demonstrated her ignorance and her arrogance. None even comes close to this exchange. Here's how she begins. Mr sloan. Why was the Bank involved in the caging of children and financing the caging of children to begin with? I don't know how to answer that question because we weren't. So in finance you've you were financing involved in debt financing. Of course, if it can GIO group, correct? For for a period of time. We were involved in financing one of the firms, we're not anymore and the other. I'm not familiar with specific assertion that you're making that we weren't directly involved in that. Okay. So these companies run on private detention facilities run by ice, which which is involved in in caging children. But I'll move on. This reminded me and her reaction to it reminded me if you've ever seen on always sunny the episode where Charlie pretends to be a lawyer. That's what it's like watching Alexandria, ocasio Cortez actually, be a congressman. This frank. It's not bad. Good point, buddy. I know a lot about the lawn. Various other lawyering 's I'm willing to Kate well versed. I know that situations like this real estate wise, very complex, actually, pretty simple. The forms are all standard boilerplate. Well, we're all hungry. We're going to get hot plate soon enough. All right. Let's talk about the contract. He's free. Where did you go to school? Again. I could ask you that very same. I went to Harvard. How about you? We're pleading the fifth, sir. I didn't do that. I'll take that advice into cooperation. All right now, let's say you go to burn lawn. So you've comes out the victim. You know? I don't think I'm going to do anything close to that. And I can see clearly, you know, nothing about the law. It seems like you have a tenuous grasp on the English language in general. Filibuster. Do you do you know, what that we're gauge what's that mean? That's a OC breaking her way out of the door out of the wall to the capitol just. Yeah. Well, so were you doing there with the caging of children may might I ask we didn't do that. Okay to shame Stor CEO. But if you were caging, I mean, there is very little difference between the two she goes on. You would think that this congresswoman she knows she has a lot of attention on her. You would think that she might do even a moment's research to see which projects the Bankhead brokered, which which projects the Bank had been involved in. No, no here. She goes on the keystone XL pipeline. Mr. Sloane Wells Fargo was also an investor and a major investor in the Dakota Access pipeline. Keystone excel pipelines. They were prime investors and lenders to companies building these pipelines in defiance of standing Brock sues. Treaty rights to protect its water and secret lands. They warned early on the Lakota Sioux warned early on that the pipeline was unstable inbound to leak despite that it was built anyway and has leaked at least five times and the keystone. Excellent particular had one leak that leaked two hundred and ten thousand gallons across South Dakota since Wells Fargo financed. The building of this pipeline in an in an environmentally unstable way. Why shouldn't the Bank be held responsible for financing, the cleanup of the of the disasters from these projects which pipeline of your referring to either, you know?.

And they said that they did identify around five hundred criminals traveling with the migrant caravan, but the didn't provide any details as how they came to that figure. So there are some some criminals that have been identified according to the administration, but by in large we are seeing from reports that they are women and children that are traveling and trying to seek asylum here in the United States, the president clearly trying to use this issue to try to push for funding for the border wall and paint all of the migrants as as dangerous we mentioned seeking asylum is not illegal immigration. I mean that that the president seems to be conflicting the two. But that said, yes, he's he's using this as a way to try to pressure folks into supporting the border wall. Here's the thing. Some Republicans don't support the border wall. And those are the same Republicans a lot of them lost and the president decided to name check them and insult them on their way out the door. So the idea that he's gonna get these people on board even with this this additional pressure. It's hard to believe. And then next year. It'll be you know, talk. About how the Democrats won't do it over and over again part of me wonders if the president even wants the wall, he just wants to political issue. We'll David though, the president has been has been threatening that he's willing to even potentially shut down the government if he doesn't get funding for the border wall. Take a listen to Senator Joni Ernst Republican from Iowa Danna bash yesterday on state of the union and asked if he'd be right? If you shut down the government if you didn't get funding for the border wall. I would rather that he didn't again, we as congress need to work really hard one to make sure that we are funding our government that that is our job as congress is defined the government. But we also understand that our constituents have have stated quite clearly that they want to say our border protected. What you're saying it, look, I think anytime the government shutdown Republicans are anywhere near plane, regardless whether they're charging out they get blamed for it. So I think it's a bad idea. I've breast out to the president before I think that's bad idea if the government shutdown book, I do think you made the point earlier that this episode is. Is great evidence for what they're going to go and stand in the house. Well, and the Senate floor and say, this is exactly why we need a border wall. No matter how many border checkpoint. You have folks are gonna come Russian the wall and trying to get through it is it's the it's the best example of the worst case. And that's that's exactly what's going to be used for despite the foulland's of peaceful folks that have been pointed out the hundred or so or five hundred or so whatever the bad numbers are if you have folks who are Russian that going around the federal police in Mexico throwing rocks at border patrol agents and really acting like thugs and criminals really painted is a bad picture..

"They do. They have other lovers, certainly. But when we look at our, our markets, which is typically what I focus on. Of course, one in every three rows of soybeans in the United States goes to China. So very important Iowa produces. I think we're the second largest producer of soybeans. So we want to see those soybeans going into China. If they can't find those with tariffs on soybeans. Now, if they can't find those from other countries and other countries experienced drought as well, they will need to figure out a way, how do we feed our livestock are pork. We send a lot of pork to China and right now, their own herds of of swine are being wiped out by African swine fever, so they will have to find other ways to feed their population. And that can factor in. To it as well net net you an optimist about this art line stance. I am an optimist. I always try and be an optimist regardless of the situation in the expiration date on that. Yeah, there will be an expiration date, but the one thing that keeps me an optimist in this equation as well as the fact that we have in Basseterre Terry Branstad as our Basseterre to China. Governor and I will history. Governor of wa, and he has a long standing relationship with president she. And so we hope that we can work through this and governor Branstad ambassador Branstad is a very honest broker with the Chinese people. You mentioned the US Mexico, Canada agreement the new branded successor to the North American Free trade agreement. Having talked Bob lighthizer the US trade Representative and others. There are acknowledgments. Part of it is built on NAFTA. Part of it is built on the long abandoned Trans-Pacific Partnership, especially when it deals with digital technology, intellectual property patents and the like, is it a rebranded agreement or is it a completely different agreement is a blend of both? It is a modernized NAFTA as the way I would describe it, but we do have some significant changes. And again, going back to agriculture, the fact that we were able to get more poultry prod. Acts more eggs into Canada and more dairy. Canada has resisted United States dairy in the previous agreement, and they finally broke, we're able to get some of our partner strategies by percents. Not huge, but it is a break through and I think any step forward. It's still a step forward issue this because it seems an, I give the president. I acknowledged the president's capability in this regard. It's not a complemented insult, but because he takes on issues like this, he therefore defines the acceptable area victory. So he owns, I've getting rid of NAFTA. I've replaced NAFTA and it's on my terms, whatever those terms are. He is uniquely positioned because he change the conversation to declare victory, right? Whether it's a victory in totality or only fractionally he gets own it as victory. That seems to me to be at least part of his approach and part of the conversation on this issue. And it is because he is an aggressive player. He's an aggressive president and a lot of what he has changed, whether it's through tax reform, whether it is through regular. Reform through the modernisation of NAFTA. He is able to claim victory on a lot of those things. When we have record low unemployment, we have record growth in measurable. The tax Bill is measurable full chapter on my book Trump's while right -regulation full chapter in my book Mr. Trump's wall, right? But on on trade, this is more seems more similar to existing deals than dissimilar. And yet he can claim victory can claim victory, but let's see. Let's see where we are in a couple of years and then it will be measurable, very good. That's the voice of Joni Ernst Republican Senator from Iowa, all you other Republicans in the conference.

"That's all right. You get to that pizza the pizza. Exactly. That's true. I think the North Koreans will set their own timeframe and they'll do what they wanna do. Kim Jong UN hasn't felt the full implication of sanctions because of the smuggling that occurs the ship to ship transfers that occur. And we've got to figure out tightened down on those countries. That are assisting North Korean juniors Republican Senator from Iowa. That's going to be a segue to the next topic, which is China trade. I will far mors the midwest all on the take podcast radio show and digital television program momentary if you like to show, and I know you do head over to Stitcher, Google, play more Spotify and let us know subscribe rate and review. We thank you. You're listening to the takeout major Garrett, Joni Ernst Republican Senator from our special guests at pizzeria grill Union Station, right near Capitol Hill. The senators gotta get back to the capitol for some votes later on this afternoon. So we're going to speed this along. Let's talk about China. Let's talk about trade. Let's talk about the mid west and agriculture concern about what's going to come of this trade confrontation. Not a war skirmishes right now, but the president keeps saying over and over. I'll make it bigger if I need to your thoughts. Yes, and has been very difficult for our farmers. I'll I'll be honest about that. So they feel like they're con- across hairs. But what I find is when I'm out of cross Iowa, I do farmer roundtables and so many of them they're feeling the pressure right now. But what they have said is I understand why President Trump is doing this. What I don't understand is why somebody didn't do it sooner. What is the what to them do, what confront China confront China. They are such bad actors than so many of them have told us to when whether it shipments of pork weather soybeans, it could be halfway across the Pacific Ocean. China will just decide, oh, we don't want it. We're not going to purchase it, send it back and that's no good. Don't. They don't honor it. They won't honor it and then add to that intellectual property theft and so on and so forth. And and China becomes a very sticky wicket. So we've got to do better, but one is helping the American farmer right now, of course, is the United States, Mexico Canada agreement that is very helpful as well as e. Yes, US m. c. a.. And of course e fifteen year round, if we can get that going, that will be a little boost for corn farmers. So when the president says farmers are holding firm, he's right based on your interaction with your own constituency is right for now for know how long does that? How long? How much more poll is there in that rubber band? There's a little bit more poll and for some of our farmers that one planning, yes. I would say those that have capital built up in in their our equity built up in their farming operations. They can hang on a little bit longer. It's those young beginning farmers that I worry about. They won't be able to hang on as long, but that's where the president's aid package comes into play. And again, I I am not are. Unfortunately, they have come to a point where they need it, but what are I wo- farmers have been insistent about is trade, not aid. Because aid is inefficient requires a lot of paperwork and why? Because they're very proud. They wanna see their goods go to market. They wanna feel productive in something about the mid west. I would say that they want to produce and they want to sell. That's their livelihood. Their livelihood is not to take the government's money. Their livelihood is to grow and produce and feed the world. Are you in general, as you well know, has been a deeply divisive topic within the administration. How hard to push there have been factions. I would say the hardline trade faction has taken prominence in two thousand eighteen. The softer line had prominence in twenty seventeen, but that's the current presents current trajectory. Are you optimistic that China will yield or you fearful the China will send other signals, hey, you wanna keep battering us on trade. Forget about North Korea. Forget about buying your debt. I mean, they have. Other levers they, they are not powerless in this conversation..

"I tend to try and be very calm even when people are haranguing me, but I haven't been in a situation where my family members have been threatened. Certainly, all of us senators. We've had threats at one point or another, but when they start going after family members, when you have people screaming at you night and day, I can imagine nerves get frayed that's what happened. I think with with judge Cavanaugh. That's that go round with some the democratic side, do think. And again with. Veteran that score. I think he could have, of course, and even said at the White House, he wishes he had. I think he could have been, but you, but you sensu hold him blameless. Well, I don't hold well in that circumstance. I, I think he was under an awful lot of pressure and I can't claim to know what he was feeling at that time. I just know how horrible it would be. Should I be accused of something I didn't do, especially something like that with so much riding on it as a nominee to the supreme court of the United States and fifteen seconds evaluate the president's approach on this issue? Well, he stayed fairly quiet for the president through the through the extent of this. Yeah. So, but I do believe that he firmly believed that Brett Cavanaugh was the right person using a weaker person would have given up on, I think were a weaker person probably would. But President Trump is very strong. Let's Joni Ernst Republican Senator from Iowa major Garrett our location who know Pete's Rian grill Union Station lunch. I hope is very much on the way. Minute. From CBS news. This is the takeout with major Garrett when I did it, and I was really being tough. And so I will go back and forth, and then we fell in love. Now, really, he wrote me beautiful letters and their great letters. We fell in love. That's the president night states. Donald Trump. He was in wheeling West Virginia, September twenty ninth two thousand eighteen in. No, he was not talking about special counsel, Robert Muller. He was talking about thank you Deanna, Kim Jong Hoon who still is the familial dictator of North Korea, and I wanna talk to our guest, Joni Ernst Republican Senator from Iowa about that because I wanna play for you in a second. I want to get your overall assessment, then I wanna play something. Lindsey, Graham, someone, you know, well, work alongside in the Republican conference said in reaction to that, but I just want your overall take. No, really. He wrote beautiful letters and their great letters, and we fell in love. Is that a good thing. Or is it a good thing or bad thing? The president, at least I hope the president was being sarcastic about that. I think Kim Jong Hoon is a horrible man and why? Because he is an extreme dictator. He kills his own people. He has no care for absolutely no care for his own people. He keeps that country closed off tight hold, and he threatens the rest of of that region as well as our nation. You believe his one-sentence line in the Singapore summit announcement about denuclearization is real and legitimate, or you have deep anxiety if not reservation that North Korea will follow through on? Well, I do have reservations about that. I think it's a noble goal to strive towards denuclearization and I think we should push for that. Absolutely. But his commitment to that, I think we are going to have to keep very close eye on that. They will have to allow inspectors in. They're going to have to open up. They're going to have to open up to the rest of the world, those two measurements. How would you assess. The post Singapore summit progress? Well, it's been very slow and very agonizing. Well, I would say there's very little. I would say there's very little and that's why we do have to keep pushing though because if we don't keep pushing, that means we're just giving into his whims and his whims will lead towards nuclearization of the Korean peninsula. Which had already is, but at least ten possibly twenty according to our intelligent test. Yes. And what we don't want to see more. Yeah. And what we don't want to see is that he achieves the ability to t move those nuclear warheads to the United States of America. In that regard. I wanna play for you cut Yana this number five Senator Lindsey, Graham at the Atlantic festival, Tober third of the sheer. I'm worried that North Korea's divining us from South Korea..
