The United States will draw down troops levels in Afghanistan and Iraq by the middle of January. The official order came Tuesday that will lower troop levels in both countries. 2500 by January, 15th after Defense Secretary Christopher Miller announced the drawdown, saying the move does not change US priorities in the region. This is consistent with our established plans and strategic objectives supported by the American people and does not equate to a change in U. S policy or objectives. Moreover, this decision by the president is based on continuous engagement. With his national security cabinet over the past several months, but some don't agree with the drawdown. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the precipitous withdrawal would be a mistake.

Post-election purge hits cybersecurity

"Cyber security and infrastructure security agency or seesaw was created two years ago within the department of homeland security to shield america's critical infrastructure from cyber attacks its mandate also includes election security and lately it's been debunking misinformation online including false rumors of voter fraud. That are being spread by president trump last week c. says assistant director was pushed out and there have been reports that director. Chris crabs expects to be fired. So what does this all mean for you. Know the other critical infrastructure. Kim zetter a cyber security journalist and author. I asked her what el sisi works on. They do a lot of work. With industrial control systems. Most of our critical infrastructure is privately owned. So we're talking. Water treatment. Plans the electric grid chemical treatment plants. ceaser also has sort of on the ground teams that will come out and do risk assessments of network and cease also a prior to the election was working on getting sensors on election networks to sort of monitor malicious attacks that might be coming into those networks that has been sort of d. h. is mandate to try and bring those networks up to more secure So then what are the national security implications of over in the leadership of the agency. First of all it's just very disruptive especially right now when there's already a lot of chaos men certainty and fear around the rising rate of covid infections and then also a lot of chaos around the election itself in the unsupported claims of voter fraud so at time when the government should have a united front in its response to the health crisis and also for a smooth and peaceful transition to a new administration. This of course creates unnecessary. Upheaval and vulnerability particularly in the eyes of adversaries who might want to take advantage of it. But i should emphasize that even if a figurehead like chris. Crabs is removed. The people on the ground will continue to do that work. It's really just a more of a political issue here now and then also the perception from outside by adversaries i mean it is really interesting that this agency ended up working on misinformation and disinformation. Which would seem to brand disinformation as a national security threat. Right yes it definitely is a concern when you've got this schism between the white house administration and even some top level. Dhs officials and then you've got the schism with the people on the ground within see so who are actually actively trying to fight the misinformation insecure networks. There's always a threat of someone coming in being appointed. Who set of does some of that. Good work. I don't have any concerns about that. I think the people at the and at cease in particular are good at their jobs and securing networks in helping critical infrastructure. And i don't really see that changing generally it seems cybersecurity has been a relatively bright spot right within the the trump ditch us definitely with credit to the trump administration has been at odds with the work season has been trying to do with you know misinformation that they have put out and so has been battling that directly through a rumor control website. Seaside director chris cribs has his own personal. Twitter account has been at odds with that yes. They've been a definite bright spot In terms of trying to get critical infrastructure more secure trying to share information with the private sector about vulnerabilities and especially with election officials. Do you feel like this is an agency that will remain empowered under a biden administration looking forward. Yes definitely i mean. Under the obama administration obama's was the first administration that really made cybersecurity. A top level national security concern and that got strengthened with the creation of seaside under the trump administration see so was stood up by congress as a standalone agency. Signaling the importance of cybersecurity And that won't change under biden. At all. Kim zetter a cyber security journalist and author reuters reported last week that the white house had asked cease to stop aggressively. Debunking election. disinformation and now for some related links. The washington post has a piece from last week about how the biden administration is likely to make funding for election security. Those efforts were consistently blocked over the last four years by senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell but the post argues that auditable voting machines with paper trails might be more necessary palatable to republicans now that trump has created so much doubt about voting systems and election. Security experts have been calling for those measures for years too. So win win. That story has more reading about biden's likely cybersecurity priorities. It's at marketplace tech dot org along with a pair of stories about how evidently deadly pandemic is an opportunity that draws out the worst people in the world first militias hackers who are attacking school districts demanding ransom posting sensitive information about children online. When they don't get it so that's a special place in hell kind of story and last week. Microsoft put up a blog post warning again about a tax on companies that are working back scenes and treatments for covid nineteen the attacks appear to be coming from russia and north korea the blog post called them unconscionable and said they should be condemned by all civilized society. The post also pointed to ransomware attacks on hospitals and healthcare companies in september. A woman in germany died at a hospital that was under cyberattack because her treatment was delayed officials. Say it's likely the first known death resulting from ransomware attack.

Trump plans to withdraw thousands of troops from Iraq, Afghanistan before leaving office

"American troops are coming home. President trump said so yesterday. He promised to withdraw. Us troops from afghanistan as well as a rock and himalaya in the next couple of months. That is all the time that he has left. The outgoing president leaves office in exactly sixty four days. Noon january twentieth. Two thousand twenty one under his orders the troop presence in iraq would drop a little and in afghanistan by lot from forty five hundred twenty five hundred now. Trump is often promised to bring troops home but his move here drew criticism from a powerful ally. Senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell are retreat would embolden the taliban especially the deadly connie wing and risked plunging afghan women and girls back into what they experience back in the nineteen ninety s. What had weakened and scattered al-qaeda a big do propaganda victory and renewed safe haven for plotting attacks against america. So how does all this look from the region. Npr's hadeed is based in islamabad. She's on the line. good morning. good morning so the. Us had already pledged to withdraw its forces from afghanistan by this spring. This came a promise under an agreement. It signed with the taliban course. The afghan government was not party to that agreement but what are afghan government officials saying now about this accelerated. Us time line for withdrawal. Well actually that we're expecting it because it's something fat. President trump has long signalled most recently last week when he pointed a senior adviser to the pentagon who calls for an immediate withdrawal at this point. They're actually eyeing the military equipment that american forces might leave behind As they rush to the exit. But there's also a sense of anger. I spoke to a senior official javard face all and he told me this poems. Do not want the to stay here. Whatever we one we draw to be responsible one and we don't expect our ally to burn. The house wants it leaves. They don't expect their ally to burn down the house as they leave. They worried a hasty withdrawal emboldened the taliban because it would signal to them that they don't have to abide by commitments for foreign forces to go echoing. Quite what mitch. Mcconnell said well is the talamante doing that are the upholding the commitments they made when it signed this agreement with the trump administration yes annoy the taliban are abiding by two key commitments. They're not attacking foreign forces and they are engaging in peace talks with the afghan government even though they've been at a stalemate since they begun but it's understood that the taliban also promised to reduce their violence but in reality they've stepped up their attacks against security forces across the country and they believed to be behind a series of unclear murders. Most recently they may have killed an afghan journalist in helmand. What are ordinary afghans citizens telling you educated afghans appear to be worried especially women they worry withdrawal will allow the taliban to seize power and that their rights might be swept away others. Tie it like a nurse. i spoke to a merger. Larry ellison's the fighting getting worse. So maybe it doesn't matter if they stay ago.

"The last few hours. The people's republic of china has congratulated. Us president elect joe biden on his. Victory last tuesday's this means that the list of nations still reserving judgment has dwindled to russia brazil north korea and intriguingly mexico. Mexico may just be passed. Caring trump himself maintains that he has been deprived vase second term by some monstrous fraud although the most dogged of his attorney rudy giuliani have unaccountably failed to furnish any evidence for this assertion as we go to air. I'm joined with more by scott. Lucas professor of studies at the university of birmingham scott. This is now a near clean sweep of recognition of president-elect biden from abroad. Is that having much impact. You think on american domestic politics well. Donald trump is dog in to The bunkers constructed inside the white house. And as far as i know he ain't coming out anytime soon. and even if it's now His friend vlad moscow and his. Flynn mr bolsonaro in brazil. That are the only ones left enabling that no it doesn't affect domestic politics because far more important than the foreign signals are those from within the united states and while a lot of republicans are privately concerned About the damage. That's being done to their party. Let on the. Us system by trump refusing to knowledge. President-elect biden you're still looking out officials within his administration who enabling him like william bar who's politicized the justice department to inquire into the election light. Mike pompeo who's politicized the state department to talk about a second administration. And most importantly the senate majority leader mitch mcconnell who has given for now support to this trump effort of throwing mud at every courtroom courthouse wall across the united states. Hoping that one case can make it up to the supreme court. I mean it's been a patent we've seen over the last few years and we've talked about this a lot. The idea that these will that the strange spectacle of these extensively sensible respectable republicans indulging enabling and excusing donald trump. But the has at least before now seemed a rationale to that which is that. He is the president of the united states. He does lead their party. And that's the way for them to get things done but the position. He's now wait in the last few hours. Arizona has been called for biden as well. If i've done the maths right. Even if trump's somehow clothes back pennsylvania and georgia which seems fantastically unlikely. That still won't be enough anyway. So those enablers do they genuinely believe any of this and if not where the what do they think. They getting out of another two months. You know that. That's a great question. And i don't think anyone beyond donald trump and maybe a couple of believers around him you know. Put any stock in the idea of fraudulent stolen election. And i don't think anyone everybody else can read the out that you so adequately summarize that you know. Joe biden is up by now sixty thousand votes in pennsylvania. He's likely to hold onto his lead in georgia. And if even if he lost us to stage right. Joe biden still has two hundred seventy electoral votes but the calculations were be different depending on who. You're talking to so for example. If you talk about mitch mcconnell. I think he's still relying on the idea that he needs to get those two senate seats in georgia to have a fifty to forty eight majority if he loses them both. The democrats have control of the senate. So he's going to ally himself with trump to make sure that you get high voter turnout amongst the trump. I if you talk about. Ted cruz. Lindsey graham marco rubio the senator who all have presidential ambitions in two thousand twenty four. They all push trump's conspiracy theories and disinformation because they see trump is being important to their political futures in other words beyond donald trump in this election is the long-term question of trumpism. The republican party. It might be a fractured republican party. But there are those who still see trumpism as being essential to their political futures. And that is what is really damaging corroding the american system short term interest versus. What should be the wider interest of an administration to deal with corona virus the economy and wider issues. President trump has been doing an amount of warning on twitter over. I notice from his feed that he has not yet got up and running today. And it's now just past seven. Am in washington dc. He has not however a spoken at least in public for a few days now. Is there anything in particular. We should infer from that. I talking talking. He doesn't want to admit he's lost. It and trump needs a rally. That's what trump feeds on so just simply going out in front of the reporters right now and you know telling them that their fake news. That's not what he wants. He wants to get that ego soothing balm of those people who will sit there and applaud him with make america. Great again now. They're interestingly enough. There is a gathering of pro-trump gathering in washington dc. Tomorrow it has not been sanctioned by the local authorities. but would it be the case that donald trump's suddenly makes us reprise appearance in front of them. I wouldn't rule anything out. But i think beyond that marcus that the the question here is that we've got some trump advisers who may be telling him. It's time to step aside. But if he steps aside there's already talk that he'll then immediately declare a run for president in two thousand twenty four and there are other advisors who were supporting like rudy. Giuliani which says keep fighting. This whichever camp has favor with him. At the moment there is this real protracted battle over what trump does in the next few weeks but what he does over the next four years and that means that for now he may not make cards tips and as it were publicly. scott lucas.

Package for this economy What do you think it is very surprising to hear that given where we are in terms of the pandemic but also given what happened earlier this year. If you think about what happened at margin april and cares act and how that help out the economy. We should want more of that. Given numbers you've said Repeatedly said it on twitter the other day and you've said in a piece online Within the past week or so our economic policies are basically geared toward white men. If white men are doing fine then we get the economic policy that white men need. That is correct because if you look at the numbers you look at what happened in april. When we had the peak of unemployment general employment was at fourteen point. Seven percent white men had an unemployment rate of twelve point four percent. That's when we saw the cares act. That's where we saw all the other things and p p and a lot of Spending to help out this economy. Since then the rate for white man has dropped down now to five point eight percent. And so you can. Look at these policymakers all while things are looking good but if you look at it for other groups so for example black men are at eleven point. Five percent so black men had a similar unemployment rate that whiteman had an april. And then you also even look at what's happening with women women last month. Eight hundred sixty five thousand dropped out of the labor force that they're not even counted in unemployment and the only got half that back. But if you look only at white men with five point eight percent on perpetrate then you can say oh we only skinny bill but white men are not the economy everybody's economy and we have to focus on that. Let me ask you one more thing and And i guess it it makes sense given the state of play right now but you wrote the other day As this pandemic has hit home. Lawmakers cannot be counted on to respond to the magnitude of this crisis or any future economic crisis that is fairly bleak that we can't count on on washington to fix this economy when it so desperately needed. But that's the truth. We lost a lot of unemployment. Pete that almost fifty percent and we put in three four trillion dollars into the economy. And the thing is it worked and instead of putting more money back in continuing these things like direct checks or expanded you. Why which people that you know said eight million people. Out of poverty policymakers that on the hands and let it expire and all the way through the election. It didn't happen shocking. Pretty much everybody so of course you know we can't. We can't expect politics because in a position where he would have done it when he's should've done it. We didn't see it so we can't trust him anymore.

Control of Senate still uncertain with a few races left to be determined

"Is between Republican Senator David Perdue and Democrat John Assaraf. If Jonah's Off can pull David Perdue down below that 50% mark that race will go to a runoff A swell. Joining us now is Shivan Hughes, Capitol Hill reporter at The Wall Street Journal. They're joining us. Theo von Good to be here wanted to get an update on the elections. The Senate was something that a lot of people were focusing on. We've already kind of talked about how the polls were wrong again, or the races weren't as tight as we thought. You know, there was a lot of talk about Democrats possibly picking up a lot of Senate seats, possibly flipping the Senate. It doesn't look like that's gonna happen now. But there are some pickups that the Democrats did get, and there's still a few races that we have yet to call on this. So Shiven tell us a little bit about what's going on in the Senate. So right now, the Senate stands at an even 48 48 48 for Democrats, 48 for Republicans, Democrats picked oven at one seat because they won seats in Colorado and Arizona. But they lost a seat in Alabama. So that's where you get the net one. There are four races that are outstanding one in Alaska, where the Republican Dan Sullivan is expected to win and one in North Carolina, where that Republican Thom Tillis is expected to win, so to holds, the focus now is on to Georgia Senate races. One of them is already going to go to a runoff next year. That's the one featuring Republican Senator Kelly La Flor, who is defending that seat. The other one is between Republican Senator David producer and Democrat Jon Ossoff's. If Jon Ossoff's can pull David Perdue down below that 50% mark that race will go to a runoff. A swell If both races go to a runoff, and if Democrats pick up both seats, Democrats would have 50 seats total, which, if Joe Biden becomes the president means that Democrats would be in control. But that's a very, very narrow pathway for Democrats to climb and already you hear Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Sounding confident that he is going to be the majority leader next year. You know, I mentioned the poles and how wrong they were or how off they were. What do polls say about these two races? At least, I mean, if they're going to run off their already really tight races to begin with. So going into this, The Poles did show that these were going to be very tight races, at least especially in the case of David Perdue. He had started out in the polls a little bit ahead and then in the public polls going into this, he was less than a percentage point behind so well within the margin of error. And the point that suggested it was a dead. He we now have ah, different kind of pole in the form of the fact that people have now voted and we're seeing those votes start to come in. Currently, we have David D'oh at about the 50% mark, with votes still to be counted on absentee basis. We're looking in particular at those Atlanta suburbs, and that compares to about 47.7% for the Democrat John Assaraf with the libertarian at about 2% points, so a very, very close race there. Our Democrats looking in the house. That was another one where they said, you know, there was a possibility of them gaining seats that actually looks like they lost a few seats. So what's going on in the House of Representatives? The races aren't fully called yet. But yes, Democrats were sure they were going to pick up seats, maybe on the order of about 10 seats this cycle, and instead, Democrats are losing seats down by about seven, according to our last count. You're seeing Democrats like Joe Cunningham in South Carolina. Having lost in suburban areas like outside of ST Louis and Wagner's seat in Missouri. She held on to that Nazi which Democrats about they're going to be able to flip in New York State. Max Rose was not looking likely to keep the Democratic seat also Anthony Brindisi in a more western part of the state, not looking likely to keep his seat. So this was not a good election for Democrats. And as we Speak. The House Democrats are in the middle of a private conference call where you have to be sure they are hashing these issues out, and it's probably not very pretty. So, as you mentioned again, this kind of leaves us with the two houses divided again, just as we've had this past four years of President Trump, so whoever comes in, it'll be pretty difficult to get anything done again. Just as we've been going through. It's going to be really hard to get anything done. And because the outcome in the Senate is uncertain, we don't know exactly what's going to be possible. But whatever it is, it's going to be a lot less ambitious than what Democrats were thinking. Democrats were already planning for a big Corona virus relief package early next year. They had been planning to do major legislation on climate change, and you're seeing those be scaled back. I'm hearing people talk about maybe an infrastructure package that has Eluded both parties for so long, maybe something on broadband. I'm starting to hear with expectations that Joe Biden is likely to be the victor. Is there anything that he could do through executive action? Could he take money that Congress has already appropriated it and repurpose that it wouldn't be nearly enough as what Democrats are hoping to achieve their covert aid bill, but they're starting to explore alternative pathways.

"Ago Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell published probably the finest men more of life in the Senate that I have ever read the long game it's indeed among the finest political memoirs I've ever read has been a couple of hours with him van in may of twenty sixteen talking about the book now the long game is out in paperback with a brand new introduction by president Donald Trump it's perfectly timed and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell joined me this morning good morning center congratulations on the new addition and the new introduction good morning glad to be with you the the long game is pretty interestingly time for an impeachment that seems to me to be the opposite of your cardinal rule which is you can start too late but you can never start too early the Democrats start too early on impeachment later well I think the speaker actually didn't really want to do it but she got drug into this position by the overwhelming love for nature of her new conference and then she decided well I need to get it over quickly filled a narrowed it down to these two articles that are really quite weak and I get to that is that is they're going to do it on yeah it is I'm gonna come back and talk about judges because the president wrote about that in the introduction but I want to play for you first a little clip that my producer Dwayne put together it's forty seconds long you'll recognize the voices I dont care I swore an oath on the Senate floor to uphold defend the constitution United States and if I don't hold this president accountable and I'm I'm violating my old so the politics be damned right now I believe it is appropriate for this impeachment for you to go forward I think it should have happened earlier but we're here now let's do it it's very clear the strong case for for impeachment and removal I have made it very clear that this is impeachable contact and I've called for an impeachment proceeding I believe that from should be impeached I believe Congress should take the steps towards impeachment leader McConnell that senators Booker Elizabeth Warren Michael Bennett Amy cover sure Bernie Sanders and Kamel Heris they've all made up their minds they want the president out why are you being a cues hard to think when we got six Democrats running for president of support impeachment it's really level if that works L. lecturing me about not being able to take a note or impartiality think these presidential candidates are partial this is a political this is a political exercise that the words in the constitution are crimes and misdemeanors are best but misleading in the sense that the the boundary road in our town describing what kind of offense would warrant impeachment the truth the matter as impeachment is whatever a majority of the house it is in a given moment orchard fortunately that is true the country we have only rarely pull the trigger on impeachment and I hope the fact that this week Kays room beach but doesn't mean this is going to become routine in the future right that is the danger and here's the other danger if you wake up in the morning and you watch morning Joe you're gonna see a completely different version of American if you wake him up in the morning and watch fox and friends I mean completely different narratives completely different views I try and get him both on the radio show is that true world media dangerous for the country is it impacting the Senate look at it you know we've had brokers free speech here from the beginning of the country the big difference now is everybody gets gets a heavy dose of it and we'll we'll be okay we'll make it through this area this is a very extensive partisanship but we've had those at times throughout our history and we always move all of the with that when the public gets chart of this level of partisanship believe me the politicians will change their approach because they will want to win elections I have a column in The Washington Post this morning senator McConnell that argues twenty sixteen was a four quake that's what we call them out in in California the real shock is coming in November much like the Brits had a four quake in the leave vote and the real election was held last week and Boris one do you think president trump is headed towards reelection well I certainly hope so I think we've done an excellent job and jump point here I think you and I will go back to the judges at because there's an after work with my new paperback edition Charlie about the accomplishment of president trump and the guy you're talking to with regard to a lifetime appointments to the judiciary that job number one we have current form the judiciary in a major way and I do US circuit I was going to go there right now the president wrote in your introduction Mitch recognizes idea that since judges enjoy life tenure the impact of judicial nominations can be felt for thirty years or more transforming the federal judiciary is the ultimate long game a hundred and twenty District Court judges fifty appeals court judges to Supreme Court justices that's remarkable it is and it just to put it and and perspective the president Obama appointed fifty five circuit judges in eight years president trump with our Senate confirmation a done fifty in three years so they is dramatic what these men and women have in common is they're all young they're all smart I have a percentage of them the Supreme Court park they'll be on the court for a very long time and what they have in common is what judges scolaire used to say the job is judged to follow the law and the constitution you would think that wouldn't be a such a quite notion but the most democratic appointees that's been their approach of president Obama tipped his hand when he said he wanted to appoint judges who had empathy well that's great if you're the litigant firm the judge has up there not so good if you are I still believe that most of my colleagues in media certainly my colleague in the law profession understand this and those who teach at law school like I do but fifty appeals court judges means about a hundred and fifty total years on the bench thirty years per charge they make about a hundred votes one way or the other in the course of the year so it's about a hundred and fifty thousand voted three hundred thousand votes swing if those judges have been appointed by secretary Clinton it's actually quite a landslide effect on American a lot do you do your colleagues in the Senate even understand how vast the difference this means well that's a good way of putting it another statistic one out of every four the US circuit judges in the country I've been put on the bench in the last three years so we do believe with the second trump term and it continued Senate Republican majority we can transform the courts even even further let me give an early Christmas present to everyone is listening if there is a vacancy by retirement or any other reason in the year coming up it I believe it is your position you will fill it because the majority is in the hands of the party of the president of my right you are entirely correct and people chose to counter misinterpret what I said at twenty six K. you have to go back to the eighteen eighties the last time the Supreme Court vacancy occurring in the middle of a presidential election year was confirmed by the Senate of a different party and then the president it is so yes we would we would certainly confirm a new justice if we have that opportunity and we're gonna continued obviously to fill the circuit and District Court erred in Vegas is as their core right up until the end of next year senator McConnell let me do some special pleading for my old state California there's some great nominees like Rick Richmond and mark scars seen others who haven't gotten a hearing yet certainly have gotten a vote is there any reason that the California different judges for which there is a desperate need have not moved forward well the district judges we still have what's called the blue slip and what that means is the is it straight with a democratic senator helped sign off on it so what typically happens is the administration in a state where there are democratic senators at the District Court level usually make a deal and split them and I know the administration and I work here deals with the sound turned and errors and hopefully we'll get until they will they will not all be the same type judges that were doing and concerted level where the so called blue slip but is the permission slip is no longer required so the leader McConnell I want to go back to the state of politics the judicial achievement has been done without support of Democrats it was a straight party line vote on judges Cavanaugh it's going to be a straight part I actually think he actually got to the center from West Virginia it's going to be a straight party line vote on impeachment is that your prediction yeah I don't think so but certainly shaken up that way in the house to the hoping that we will not lose any Republicans when it comes over to the center now I I was originally in favor of a long trial I have been persuaded that that's a bad mistake do you think you've persuaded the president of that yeah I think so look if if you get to a point here where enough is enough if we go down to the witness I have yeah we probably call people that would like to hear from but they'll be trying to get the vice president the secretary of state John Bolton the former national security adviser if you get the Kerr of this could go on endlessly and what we know is how we know how to put a and right now we know the president I don't be removed all those so the question is just how long do we want this to it could be posted on the American people I what I think we ought to do is listen to the arguments have a period of written questions and then vote on the two articles of impeachment and in an impeachment proceeding of the Senate fifty one senators decide every target mobile majority situation and as soon as fifty one senators is out that part about I want a blue all of that will happen have you had a chance to read the president's letter to Nancy Pelosi at actually I have it hello what is the well it's six let it's the six pages long it took me three segments to read the whole thing and it is the complete summation of his view of the world an accurate and authentic obviously written by himself for dictated it is it's being condemned on the left it's being cheered on the right it's a classic what we have in America now two world views but while half of the country supports them in half the country HM ninety five percent of the elite media item so we're not getting it a true reaction to it but I have one guy calling from your home town of Louisville so he's going to go to work print off copies and give it to everyone so I I suppose you'll be teaching at the McConnell center for years and years to come I don't know what else this can be said the president's now weighed in how long will this take well it shouldn't take that long but just for one thing it may make centers of station to get available with this under the.

"Majority leader Mitch McConnell on the NF lore speech says the House Democratic plan to vote on funding eight shuttered departments. And continuing funding for the department of homeland security and the next month without an increase for President Trump's border law won't fly one partisan vote in the house tomorrow is not going to solve anything. I made it clear to the speaker. We're not interested in having show votes. Her in the Senate, we're interested in bringing up something. House has passed sixty senators will support and the president Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer accuses Republicans and the president of holding federal workers, and the public hostage hope that they will not use the American people the millions who depend on these eight departments and the workers who are either not working or not getting paid as hostages to have a temper tantrum pound the table and say, it's our way where we heard all these people the partial shutdown now in its twelfth day has furloughed about four hundred thousand federal workers with a similar number working without pay an announcement made after the closer trade today is likely to have an impact when the markets open tomorrow.
