35 Burst results for "Martha Raddatz"
A highlight from Week in Review - Episode 25
"Time for the Mike Gallagher Show week in review podcast. We're glad you could join us. Boy, what a week it was. The debate, the craziness, the New York City judge trying to crush the Trump organization, keeping Trump from ever conducting business in New York ever again. Number of media outlets conducted polls. The results don't look really good for President Biden. Even the media outlets could hardly believe their own results. Washington Post ABC poll came out over the weekend. Has Trump beating Biden by 10 points? 52 to 42 percent among registered voters in a hypothetical 2024 national matchup. Now, the Washington Post says, oh, this poll is an outlier. Well, the truth is there's no national election. What matters are the other swing states. We know that we understand that the NBC poll has Trump and Biden tied. I think what's important to remember is almost no national poll has Trump getting significantly beat by Joe Biden. Are they all lying? Are they all making it up? Is it all are they all outliers? And make no mistake, they are melting down, man. They are freaking out over this poll. Here's ABC's. And you know, it's tough because you got both the Washington Post and ABC, these two huge legacy media outlets having to distance themselves in a way from their own poll. Here's ABC's Rick Klein talking to Martha Raddatz over the weekend about the staggering bad news for Joe Biden in this poll. Martha, these numbers are simply staggering for the sitting president. 44 percent of people in this poll say they are not as well off as they were at the start of the Biden administration two and a half years ago. Those are the worst numbers that we've seen in our ABC News Washington Post polling. It's a question we've been asking going back to the Reagan administration. And when you when you dive into the big questions around the economy, we know President Biden has been out there trying to make the case. Unemployment is low. He's been talking about how inflation has been easing, but people aren't buying it. You covered some of the reasons why. Gas prices, food prices, grocery prices and like right now on the big picture on the economy, 74 percent of the country, that's about three quarters of Americans who say the economy is either not so good or downright poor. Now, of all the things I get angry about, the illegal immigration crisis that we have in America right now is infuriating because this is a crisis of the Democrats making and they have the gall. They've got the nerve. They have the audacity to pretend it's not their fault. When you screech about open borders, when you brag about being a sanctuary city and suddenly we face a crisis of thousands and thousands and thousands of illegals entering this country.

He of course talked about the success of the evacuation mission and it has been enormously successful in that they got more than one hundred twenty two thousand people out really in a matter of days. That number is more than double but most experts solar possible no nation no nation has ever done anything like it in all history but the reason they had to have that emergency evacuation was because of the way this withdrawal was handled and what they didn't know by the time i came to office. The taliban was it a strongest military position since two thousand one. They didn't know the taliban would take over in eleven days and it led to chaos and desperation. But if you listen to that speech it's really largely. I'm getting out of afghanistan for all the reasons he said

"Future, and in a few weeks time, General Miller will be able to say he's completed the mission. Bringing US troops home. ABC's Martha Attitudes Been in Afghanistan joins me now to talk about it. What are hope and morale like in Afghanistan among the people right now, with the U. S troops leaving, I think people are genuinely And realistically, very concerned about what happens next and the Afghan forces to and what General Miller's talking about. There is what's happened over the past few months, the Taliban is sweeping through. Big massive parts of Afghanistan and as these Afghan forces either are forced to surrender or are massacred. The morale and the psychological effect of that is very, very powerful for those forces. And then, of course, that spreads out to the people themselves. When you're talking about Bagram air Base, This is a huge place and it's pretty much abandoned. Now. What does that make you feel like when you spent yourself so much time there and the troops as well? And the people of Afghanistan? It really was quite emotional. I have walked around that base so many, many times I took off in an F 15 combat flight in the back seat of an F 15 about 10 years ago. So there are so many memories. We basically waged war from that air base. It is a pretty powerful reminder of how much has happened in that country. And what has not happened and remembering that I was also in the last convoy out of Iraq and we were back years later, because Isis that also is very vibrant in my memory as well. I believe that General Miller and others are concerned about that. I've think interviewed almost every one of the I think nine commanders who've been over there and they all said the Afghan troops are better with the U. S. But they also said, Look, we can train them. We can train them. I don't think you're seeing the results of that training that guarantees a good outcome here, and it's something that I think everybody has to keep their eye on. Thoughts also turned to Donald Rumsfeld. What did you have to say about his passing? And what kind of a person he was Defense Secretary Rumsfeld was a huge personality. He loved being the center of attention in those press briefings, but he was behind the invasion in Afghanistan. Certainly after 9 11 And Iraq. He was a complicated person. You know, I've read a lot of obituaries and thoughts about him. And people either loved him or not. He was difficult to cover. Frankly, he really was. But his place in history is fully associated with these two wars. ABC is Martha Raddatz. Thank.

"Come O news, 1000 and FM 97 7 On the ABC News. It's this week here now co anchor Martha Raddatz. Cecilia. I wanna move to impeachment. Trump's entire five person Legal team. Is now gone. We're about a week away. He's lawyer less. What were the differences? Why did that team walk away? What were their views of how to help Donald Trump? Yeah, Martha what we're hearing. It came down to a disagreement over strategy that President Trump Remains fixated on this false notion that hey, won the election. He wanted the lawyers to really focus in this impeachment hearing an impeachment trial on on voter flow fraud. Widespread voter fraud claims, which we've been reporting for months at nauseam are completely baseless and false. The argument that you're hearing from the lawyers, however, is that they wanted to go in there. And reflect what you're hearing from So many Republicans in the party right now, which is they believe impeaching a former president. Post presidency is unconstitutional that ended up being this disagreement over strategy and over focus, you know, but you said it. It's a mess. Here We are a little more than a week out from this this trial. The president has no lawyers, the lawyers who represented the former president, I should say who represented him. During the first impeachment trial, have declined to participate in this re Giuliani, who wanted to do it says that he can't because he is now considered a witness in this because of his role at that rally on January, 6 before the insurrection, and really, what it kind of comes down to is, the more things change, the more they stay the same. The president is still down in Florida. Fixated on this notion that he did not actually lose the election that he actually lost in ritual on this impeachment trial, with all but five Republicans, saying the outcome is unconstitutional, it's really a foregone conclusion. What's going to happen? Lawyers or no lawyers? It was the strongest signal yet that we have seen that former President Donald Trump is likely to be acquitted in his second impeachment trial. 45 GOP senators voted to not move forward with the trial at all. Declaring it unconstitutional. Senator Rand Paul now saying that the trial is dead on arrival, Senator Susan Collins says Do the math here. You need at least 17 Republicans. In order to convict 45 or saying the trial is unconstitutional. The numbers just are not there. And Republicans wanted this delay this two week long delay in order to give former President Donald Trump more time to prepare his defense. So it is striking this morning that he is waking up without a defense team is Democrats are working to build their case. They're still pressing forward with this. They said this is about holding Donald Trump accountable. And Mary Mitch McConnell had signaled his openness to convict Trump. But he voted against even holding the trial. Is there any chance he now supports conviction? And what does this say about him going forward? Well, it says that there isn't really a good chance here that that it certainly is not a good sign for those who are holding out hope that Republicans may join Democrats in voting to convict the former president. I mean, you know, McConnell has been really interesting to watch over the last couple weeks because of course, he came out very sharply, saying that the president flatly provoked the mob, the violent mob that stormed the capital, he said. The former president Fed lies. His supporters. We knew he was open to the possibility of conviction. But then he goes ahead and votes not to move ahead with this trial. Now I'm told that he is still leaving open that door. He wants to hear the evidence wants to see what's presented. But it certainly seems like it's going to be, you know, an uphill battle to convince Mitch McConnell and of course, he sets the tone for his members. And Mary Alice. This is all kind of forced Democrats to look at the possibility of censure. Instead, how likely is that? I think it's really being considered. I've talked to a senior Democratic aides on the hill that said they're looking at this as a real possibility. We've seen a handful of senators, both Democrat and Republican, start floating it. But the question comes down to would Republicans actually get on board with that as an alternative? Democrats are gonna wanna have a trial. Still, they want to lay out their evidence. They want to document what they saw happen on January 6, but they don't want to have a vote that they know is just gonna fail. So if they got indications from Susan Collins of Maine from others that they actually had 10 Republicans that would seriously consider vote for a censure. I think they might bring it up as a possible alternative. Vote. You know, Republicans could use that as an off ramp. We've heard this conversation from Republicans. They're not interested in the impeachment trial because they don't find it constitutional and that's a process argument. But they're not offering it on alternative. So does censure become an alternative for Republicans, too, so that there are part of some response from Congress. About the defense on January 6 Thanks for sharing part of your Sunday with us.

With Corona virus vaccine numbers lagging behind where the Trump Administration promised and what governors counted upon having on hand to administer. Some believe that the country is falling behind his distribution bottle. That appears not to be the case in West Virginia, though the Southern state has been a model of efficiency when it comes to getting shots into arms. That state's governor Jim Justice, spoke to ABC chief Global Affairs anchor Martha Raddatz on this week and said West Virginia's vaccine plan works because it's modular and can be set up wherever it's needed. We had to take the vaccines to the people rather than bring the people to the vaccine, and you know so Just just been a lot of work, but it's just it's just practical, smart.

Some are also members of the military for the latest on what we know about those who stormed the capital. Here's a B C's Martha Raddatz. Martha, You've been tracking these people from the very beginning, looking at pictures talking to law enforcement. Who were these people who attack the capital? You had a vast array of people there, but all of them extremist extreme Trump supporters saying that Joe Biden didn't win the election. You had militia members. You had armed individuals. In that crowd. You had people in tactical gear. There were a number of veterans I saw, which is so disturbing law enforcement. There were some former firefighters, for instance, one of them now charged with heaving and £50 fire extinguisher. At law enforcement. It was a vast array of angry, frenzied people in a mob. You've covered things like this in other countries. Compare that to what you saw last week in Washington and the people that they are now uncovering any similarities.

It is just incomprehensible that this would happen on American soil. Like people who have been fed a bunch of lies. 20,000 National Guard troops in Washington D. C. Now what are they saying about protecting the U. S Capitol from U. S citizens? It is a really difficult position for the National Guard to be, and I think people forget that these are citizen soldiers. They were called up from their homes to come in and protect the capital and that kind of Power. That kind of presence makes people feel really good. But on the other hand, these air troops that are not Trained very consistently in law enforcement. These are people who help in humanitarian situations. Generally, even on January, 6th, the National Guard was helping the police traffic stops. So this is a completely unprecedented situation. You've got them. Trying to protect the nation's capital. From what what may well be their neighbors. Finally, Martha, I watched you throughout the day on Wednesday and was watching you because you were out in the streets and and saw people surrounding you steps being taken coming up for next week for the inauguration. It's a scary time you've been in scary places before. Can you compare that? It's a dangerous situation, but I think one of the hardest parts here is because it's so personal. The president and many of supporters have been calling the press the enemy of the people. The press is a target. No question, and I felt it up there and the idea that someone is shouting your name and wanting other people to run over. Just around you Those air really dangerous, dangerous situations, and you just have to keep your cool and depend on your crew and depend on your own instincts and hope those fellow Americans don't really go after you, Martha Raddatz. Nobody better than you. Thank you so much. Thank you so much. Now, with the focus on Washington, shifting back and forth between the impeachment and security President Trump took a trip to Texas this week to promote his administration's immigration policies..

The top stories from the Coma 24 7 News center Well because of the long holiday weekend, we're a little behind in the brand new numbers on the Colbert Pandemic, the State Department of Health's latest data. Shows a jump of more than 8600 cases. So for more than 150, rather rather 15,000 people have been hospitalized because of the virus, and that's an increase of 633 people. In the past few days, President Trump is questioning the latest cove it death numbers, saying they're inaccurate. Someone's like pop, um, spoke with the Tacoma emergency medicine doctor, Dr Nathan slicker about this. But even as the president disagrees with these sentiments U. S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams said on CNN's state of the union that the death count is not inflated from the pulp from a public health perspective. I have no reason to doubt those numbers. And neither does Dr Anthony Fauci, who told Martha Raddatz on ABC this week that we need to have faith in our public health system. The deaths are real deaths. I mean, all you need to do is to go out into the trenches go to the hospital to see what the health care workers are dealing with. That's real. That's not fake. This disease is real. This pandemic is real. Let's get over this and get on with living, not fighting about the number of cases. This is just silly. What's more shocking is when you look at some of the data, you can see that it took over 290 days for the country to reach 10 million cases of covert 19. But took less than 55 days to double that amount to 20 million cases in Washington, all but two regions of the state have over 80% of their staff. Hospital beds filled Nick Pop. Um come on. In short supply of covert 19 vaccine doses is leading to a reappraisal of how the vaccine is administered. The New York Times reports.

The argument goes, It might save lives. If more people get some protection. Now, then get the second dose. One more supplies come in. Many health experts argue the first dose provides no more than 50% protection. Not enough to create the herd Immunity needed to stop the virus respected to find out sometime this week who the next group of people will be to receive the covert vaccine in this state. Right now, the state is busily vaccinating health care workers and people who live and work in long term care facilities.

We're seeing surges of covert cases across the country, and we're expecting to be heading into a tough couple of months for the deadly virus. ABC is Martha Raddatz talk with the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Dr Anthony Fauci. I want to start by saying this. We report the numbers of deaths and cases every day. But I want to pause for a moment and ask you your reaction to 350,000 deaths we've now reached. Did you ever expect it to be that high? No, Martha. I did not. But you know, that's what happens when you're in a situation where You have surges related to so many factors inconsistent. Adhering to the public health measures the winter months coming in right now, with the cold. Allowing people or essentially forcing people to do most of this thing's indoors as opposed to outdoors and then the traveling associated with the holiday season. Is all of the ingredients that unfortunately make for a situation that is really terrible. I mean to have 300,000. Cases in a given day, and between two and 3000 deaths per day is just terrible. I mean, it is. I mean, there's no running away from the numbers Moth, er. It's something that we absolutely got to grasp and get our arms around and turn that turned that inflection down. Doctors. Actually, the president just tweeted that the number of deaths is far exaggerated. Blaming the C D. C is what he called ridiculous method of determination compared to other countries. Your response to that. Well, the deaths are real deaths. I mean, all you need to do is to go out into the trenches. Go to the hospitals see what the health care workers are dealing with. They are under very stressed situations in many areas of the country. The hospital beds of stretched people are running out of beds running out of trained personnel who are exhausted right now. That's real. That's not fake. That's real and Dr Fauci, we saw that the US is vaccinating only about 200,000 people a day, with many states using just a small percentage of the vaccines they have received. What's the biggest cause of this delay? Well, I think it's just trying to get of massive vaccine program started. And getting off on the right foot. There have been a couple of glitches. That's understandable. I think the important thing Martha is to see what's happening in the next week to week and a half because the original projection That General parent who's in charge of the actual ultimate shipping and distribution. There's allocation. There's there's shipping. There's distribution, and then there's putting it into people's arms. So they were promising that they would have about 20 million doses that were allocated, shipped and distributed. They fell short of that by the end of December, but in the first couple of days In January. That catching up with that what we need to catch up with now is getting into people's arms because there's now about four million. We wanted to get to 20 million. But some little glimmer of hope is that in the last 72 hours, they've gotten 1.5 million doses into people's arms, which is an average of about 500,000 Day, which is much better. In the beginning when it was much, much less than that. So we're not where we want to be there. No doubt about that. But I think we can get there. If we really accelerate, get some momentum going and see what happens. As we get into the first couple of weeks of January and Dr Venture, the president puts responsibility on the states. But Utah Senator Mitt Romney is you might have just heard wrote this week that it was unrealistic to think that health care workers already overburdened or CVS and Walgreens could really handle that vaccination program, writing that comprehensive vaccination plans have not been developed at the federal level and sent to the states as models. Is as incomprehensible as it is inexcusable. Is that inexcusable? Well, what we need to do Martha's. We've got to get interaction between the federal government in the states to say the federal government should do with themselves. That will never happen. Well, this leave the states on their own without any help without into the instruction without any resource is is going to be tough. You've got to have a combination of both. You have to have a real interaction, a real partnership. Between the federal government in the states. That's what we're trying to do. Hopefully that will then materialize as we get into the beginning of this year, but you're absolutely right. If you try and do it one way or the other. It's not gonna work. It's got to be pulling together. Both federal and state will have a new president in a few weeks. What difference do you think the public will see when Joe Biden's president? Well, I mean, we've already heard the President elect Biden talking about the kinds of things that he wants to see done. And that's gonna be hopefully uniformed throughout the country. What what the president elect said about masks. Everybody wear a mask. No exception Everybody for the 1st 100 days, probably well beyond that. But at least for the 1st 100 days, the goal of vaccinating 100 million people in the 1st 100 days is a realistic goal. We can't do one million people per day.

John Bolton's Damning Indictment of Trump
"Police reform two Supreme Court rulings to Juneteenth many of the week's biggest stories involved the president of the United States we're starting off with a new book by his former national security adviser John Bolton who did not testify in the impeachment proceedings but who broke his silence this week with his new book coming out next week the room where it happened is his account of working under president Donald Trump in it Bolton warns of the president being taken advantage of by foreign adversaries I think Putin thinks he can plan like a fiddle I think Putin is smart tough I think he sees that he's not faced with a serious adversary here I don't think he's worried about Donald Trump he claims the president's only focus was winning again in twenty twenty I think he was so focused on the reelection that longer term considerations fell by the wayside describing his presidency in terms of obstruction of justice as a way of life John Bolton said Donald Trump simply isn't up to the job the president may well be a superb deal maker when it comes to Manhattan real estate dealing with arms limitation treaties on strategic weapons dealing in many many other international security issues are things far removed from his life experience Fulton disputes the book contains classified information but top Intel officials warn it could cause grave damage to national security both gave his first interview to ABC chief foreign correspondent Martha Raddatz it's airing at nine o'clock Sunday night this week I talked to Martha about her interview the significance of Bolton's accounts and what it all might mean for the country this book there is so much in it for everything from president trump is a radical irrational foolish stunningly uninformed was there any one thing that stood out in this beside some of those comments the book is just briefly job drop paying page after page and the interview is as well John Bolton says this is just a book of facts what happened during his seventeen months in the White House I think it's so important to remember he is the highest ranking official who's written such a comprehensive book like this while a president is still in office he told us he concluded from all that he saw that the president isn't fit for the office of president I don't think he has the confidence to carry out the job there really isn't any guiding principle that I was able to discern other than what's good for Donald trump's re election was very firm about that and that is an extraordinary statement for someone to make about a sitting president yeah I'm structure of justice as a way of life expelled on them he talks a lot about what happened during the Ukraine back and forth John Bolton of course as you remember did not testify during the impeachment hearings and he's been heavily criticized for that but he says he thinks that the hearing should have been expanded they should have looked at other things that the president has done with foreign leaders if he does not say that they are are impeachable but he says it's possible their peach bowl and he's talking about relationships with with China with other foreign leaders with Turkey and he says some of these foreign leaders cannot wait to get in a room alone with president trump without aids without Bolton so they could make a better deal for themselves what does that mean as somebody who has covered global affairs for such a long time as you have looking forward for even just the next few months of this presidency or possibly the next four years if the president is reelected all when it comes to foreign policy in American security one of the things the president said is that parts of this book are classified and that they could harm national security and when you ask John Bolton about that I mean he clearly says a lot about what was said inside the rooms with these foreign leaders because John Bolton was there trump says he's a liar but whatever those stories are out there and I said look doesn't that harm national security that John Bolton is writing about foreign leaders and he said look it's not anything those foreign leaders don't know I think what John Bolton says about the president not being prepared for these meetings those are alarming statements I am I'm sick of my own preparation for that was that for the Singapore summit in the Hanoi summit and and you really want to read up on those things and you know John Bolton saying the president did not and wasn't prepared for them but foreign policy in the country Bolton will say it's been harmed if there is another four years it could be harmed further according to Bolton what's the overall reason for this book do you think I can only tell you what John Bolton says and he said he wanted to get just the facts out of what he saw that he thought they were important to get out that he thought it was important for people to hear what the president said and John Bolton clearly is concerned about the presidency and about the future I think that is why he wrote this book it is almost six hundred pages all I can say is that John Bolton insists he did not write this to settle scores he says he wrote it to let the American people know what goes on in the White House with president trump
