Correspondent Linda Kenyon has the latest from Capitol Hill in this heightened era of partisanship. House. Speaker Nancy Pelosi emerged from White House meeting with President Trump saying all his well, at least when it comes to infrastructure infrastructure, America's never been a partisan issue. And we hope to go forward and a very nonpartisan way for the future Senate. My no. Already leader Chuck Schumer also was at that meeting. We approached the meeting with goodwill. We'd love to do an infrastructure Bill on Capitol Hill. Senator John Barrosso also was filled with dimissed is work. We need to do our roads and our bridges in his chairman the environment and public works committee. I am committed to continue to do that the committee has been working on that in a bipartisan way to meeting with Trump and house and Senate Democrats reached an agreement in principle for a two trillion dollar infrastructure plan, but how to pay for it Senator Schumer has a proposal view, very simply as that the pay fors should not fall on the backs of middle class and working people. But rather it should make the code more progressive rather than less progressive after the tax cut that they did last time which was mainly for the wealthy. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell says there is no way Republicans will agree to reopen. The two thousand seventeen tax law to pay for new infrastructure of this tax Bill is what's generated this robust economy? The last thing we want to do. Has step on all of this growth. Senator Barosso agrees for folks who may want to raise income taxes to do it. I think that is the wrong way to approach it. And that is something that I think would hurt our strong healthy and growing economy ultimately says humor the next move is up to Trump. We told him that previous infrastructure bills had failed because the White House and the Republicans refused to come up with pay fors. And he agreed that he would meet with us in three weeks in present his pay force. And shimmer says he's cautiously optimistic the president will come up with a plan. Will he be able to deliver well in the past he often hasn't but hope springs eternal, Linda Kenyon, Washington.

"From washington d._c. This is westwood one daily news for august twenty first twenty nineteen. I'm john trout president. Trump trump revisits his feud with two muslim american congresswoman as he talks about jews and israel correspondent. Linda kenyon has more the president says he sides with israel israel which barred congresswoman rashied ali and ilhan omar from visiting both israel and the occupied west bank propaganda to against israel so i don't blame israel israel for doing what they did. I have nothing to do with it. The president last week urged israel blocked lebron omar from visiting the country as part of a congressional trip saying in a tweet that allowing the visit which show grade weakness he also tweeted that the to hate israel and the jewish people an hour after trump's tweet israel denied the congresswoman entry representative steven omar has supported the boycott divestment and sanctions movement it targets israel due to its treatment of the palestinians to leave was born in the u._s. us but her parents emigrated from the west bank and her ninety year old palestinian grandmother still lives there she was later told by israel that she could visit her grandmother after all as long as she restricted her speech about israel through tears at three o'clock in the morning we all decided as a family that i could not go until i was it was a free american united states congresswoman to leave with the tears. President trump quickly dismissed to leap statement all of a sudden. She starts with tears. There's tears and i don't buy it then. The president went further. Where's the democratic party gun. Where have they done where they're defending these people over for the state of israel but his comments after that shocked many and i think any jewish people that vote for a democrat i think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty. It's outrageous. It's offensive democratic. Congressman ted deutch who is jewish says this question of loyalty is anti-semitic is he suggesting we're being disloyal to him is he suggesting that he knows what it means to be loyal to my religion and he condemns the president for these and other remarks. The president needs to apologize trump in the g._o._p. Of work to win over jewish americans vote for democrats but to suggest there disloyal if they don't vote republican is not exactly a winning strategy especially given they're multiple exit polls from the two thousand sixteen presidential election showed that more than seventy percent of jewish americans voted for hillary clinton linda the canyon washington even though he doesn't believe one is coming president trump says his administration is considering options to stave off a possible recession russian and on one of the causes for concern the ongoing trade war with china the president is admitting it might hurt the economy in the short term as our bob costantini constantini points out seeming to understand a recession as possible president trump now looking ideas for preventing one. I'd like to see a cut in the fed rate because that should have happened a long time uh-huh ago. I think they're being very tardy and not doing it and not having done it sort of and <hes> yeah. I've been quite vocal of that. It was actually one of the mildest comments from mr trump about out that wish as for possible tax cuts. I would love to do something on capital gains. We'll talk about that. Payroll taxes something that we think about and a lot of people would like to see that very much affects the the workers of our country even if the u._s. does not officially have a recession in coming months. The president and aides want to fight even possible anxiety. Among americans at one is coming. President trump is previously insisted the trade war with china is not hurting the economy even as economists believe it might dp eventually trade war with china china affecting me with disagree with that work yeah well. Let me let me tell you now when we asked the oval office photo opportunity the president revealing and it's about time whether it's good for our country or bad for our country term long term. It's imperative that somebody does this is the president's answer which went on for some time was reported in real time markets that have been uneasy over the trade war dropped. He seemed to understand that so. I don't mind this question whether it's good or bad short term is irrelevant. We have to solve the problem with china because they're taking out five hundred billion dollars a year plus and that doesn't include intellectual property theft in the coming weekend. The president goes to france for the annual meeting of g seven leaders the top industrial nations in the world amid concerns about a global recession and trade issues but he may try to make the case for readmitting admitting russia to the group president obama because putin outsmarted him president obama thought it wasn't a good thing to have russia in so he wanted rush <music> out but i think it's much more appropriate to have russia and it should be the g. eight because a lot of the things we talk about having to do with russia president obama and the other nations leaders kicked russia russia out of what was then the g. eight for the invasion and annexation of crimea in ukraine bob costantini the white house president trump has cancelled a scheduled trip to denmark because of their prime minister's refusal to entertain trump's offer to purchase the scandinavian country correspondent carey shoemaker report for in a tweet tuesday. President trump says quote denmark is a very special country with incredible people but based on prime minister met frederick since comments that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of greenland. I will be postponing are meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time in quote he added the prime administers saved a great deal of expense and effort by the u._s. In denmark by being so direct. I'm kerry shoemaker with the peak of california's wildfire air season fast approaching. The status of federal help in response to fires in the state was the focus of a congressional hearing held on the road. Jim roope explains the house oversight and reform committee hearing was held in southern california where fema region nine director bob fenton who's boss's the president says while he's not a scientist and in spite of what the trump administration has said climate change is having an effect <hes> we see disastrous become more severe <hes> whether it be typhoons out in the pacific taker fires here and and more frequent and so we're seeing this illusion continue you may remember the president said california should do a better job abbott raking the forest floors to prevent catastrophic wildfires california office of emergency services director mark your duty testified with his tongue planted firmly in his cheek. That's being addressed well. We have a strike team. Ranker's president threatened to cut funding. If california didn't do a better job of clearing forests of dead trees and debris but nearly sixty percent of force land in california is federal land so far says ghilarducci. The president has not made good on that threat. We have not been limited. Take our disaster recovery funds <hes> the president <hes> has declared each of the disastrous we have requested our federal fire management assistance grants approved on now in record time officials also propose to the congressional panel that more funding should go to firefighter mental health just beginning to understand and more profoundly the the mental health and mental anguish side of things he also says there needs to be participation from insurance companies in prevention pressure to lower premiums.

That's when the House Judiciary Committee begins. Its own hearings with the goal of deciding whether to draft articles of impeachment and send those articles to the full House. Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry. Nadler says the first hearing we'll hear from constitutional lawyers who will discuss constitutional law and how it applies to the facts in the case. Ace Congresswoman Madeleine. Dean is a member of the Judiciary Committee. What judiciary has the opportunity to do? is to inform everybody including the American people on on exactly the constitutionality of the steps of impeachment. For example what are high crimes and misdemeanors what did our founders intend and so it is impart a very academic presentation that we will go through and we'll have the chance to ask academics historians questions about what rises to the level of high crime misdemeanor. Treason reason or bribery. Did President trump do any of those things. That's what the House Intelligence Committee hearings were all about and that committee is drafting a report on its findings to send to the Judiciary Committee chairman. Nadler's notified the White House that the president and his council are welcome to attend the hearings and are welcome to take the opportunity to cross examine witnesses members members of the committee. Say they would be surprised if he did. What about Secretary of State? Mike Pompeo time is right. All good things happen rather cryptic response to a direct question Jin during a State Department briefing on Tuesday.
