"Plus, we'll have the latest on the sale of southern B's review, the talian newspapers, and find out why the western Balkans is so fond of Turkish soap operas. That's coming up right here on the briefing on monocle twenty four. And welcome to today's briefing with me and Ramallah. It's five hundred and three days until people in the United States vote in the next presidential election to nobody's surprise last night. President Donald Trump officially declared his intention to campaign to keep his job, announcing his bid for reelection in Florida. A key battleground state and handy for at least one of his golf courses is seventy eight minute. Speech was the by now familiar combination of boasts of Bula accomplishments assertions of abuse nonsense and invocations of imaginary enemies, all of which was Gidley who today that by the kind of people who turn up at these things he is some of what the president had to say. I stand before you to officially launch my campaign for a second term as president of the United States. Very historic because exactly for years ago this week, I announced my campaign for president of the United States. And it turned out to be more than just a political campaign. It turns out to be a great political movement because of you a great move. On joined with more on this by the author and broadcaster. Michael Goldfarb Michael measured against Trump's standards of all rhetorical. We'll say or anything unusual about Las nuts speech. No, this is a DJ doing his greatest hits. And fact, most of the rallies, that we've seen over the last couple of years since he actually one I've been a replay of the campaign, greatest hits except that now he can add say, well, I did this, and I did that and because I think people who support in Christ in his his relationship to the truth, they just buy it. They just love to hear it. I mean is there no indication at all? Even among that support base that people are getting tired of his stick. Or are they as you suggest as enthusiastic as people who are still buying tickets to see? I don't know the eagles or the Rolling Stones. Hey, actually, I haven't bought a ticket to see the Rolling Stones. Through my backout sitting on a backlist bench in a big stadium in Philadelphia. I said that's it for me in the stones. Listen. I it's a hard question to answer accurately, because if you look at national polls, what for other candidates seeking reelection would be a floor is his ceiling. He's always running between forty and forty two percent approval. So pretty clearly his supporters are as I christened them in two thousand sixteen unswayable. He can do anything. He as he wants it. I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose a vote because the people committed to voting for him are still the people committed to voting for him. What's interesting and I think it will if should think about this as there's for every action, there's an equal an opposite reaction except in the case of Trump and American politics. The reaction to him on the democratic side has actually stimulated things. It's very easy to forget. With Donald Trump because he dominates the news cycle so much, you know, the reality of what happened during the mid term of both last year. And that is that a substantial number of people who might have sat on their hands came out to vote, and they voted democrat. The Democrats did extremely well. And I think that so long as Trump continues to be who he is. And there's no sign that he will ever change then he will likely motivate democ- democratic voters who you know in two thousand and sixteen warrant so energize to come out and vote for whoever the Democrats nominate what do we glean if not from last night's speech necessarily than anything else, he said, would done recently about how he intends to fight this next election campaign? Will it be enough for him to just keep cranking out the old greatest hits and hoped that by a second fluky falls? Over the line in a few case state so easy going to have to come up with something new. I think that what you'll see is very interesting.

"I welcome to Midori house. My guest today are the journalist Samir shackle who writes for publications, including the guardian the new statesman and Deutsche Avella and the journalists Ambra caster, Michael Goldfarb say welcome both of you to the program. Now, a damning United Nations report says that increased human activity is threatening the existence of a million animal implant species, it goes onto our that nature is being destroyed at a rate ten to hundreds of times higher than the average over the last ten million years and that unless remedial action is taken humanity faces a future fresh water shortages and climate instability. Well, the report compiled over three years by a team of scientists and diplomats claims that agriculture and fishing are the primary cause of the crisis, Michael the extraordinary thing about this report is the tone because it is heavily strident. Very fatalistic something that we don't normally associate with you. And documents exactly it turns out that we are the media. You're we're that that with the media or did to get rid of the dinosaurs. We may well be doing to ourselves and to the planet. It's it's a abroad reported. And in fact, it's been trailed the idea of a million species of flora, and fauna disappearing is something that has been trailed already. I I really don't know how much. I mean, I guess the the purpose of the report is to sound an alarm, my problem with it is that the big organizations, the UN, and and various other. Climate groups that they negotiate various treaties. And so on have been sounding warnings for most of my belt live and while I'm convinced that younger people get it. We haven't passed that tipping point where the people in charge get it sufficiently to carrying on using the same verb get their act together. You know, this is a problem. But is it different this time around because it has joined the dull certainly not in a way that I Anthony media with because it's looks at the interrelationship between biodiversity climate and human wellbeing. The other fats is how it is very circular. Whereas newly reports have taught about environmental damage in terms of greenhouse gas emissions rising sea levels because of melting polarized caps and done the dangers to to to wildlife potable that sort of thing we'll. I mean, I think the problem is that the. The. The fact is that it's all connected, right? Fact is that the scale is enormous. The scale shows how borders mean really nothing. I mean, we're we're living in a time. Now where nationalism is reasserting itself in in geopolitics. And you realize wait a second. No, the and what it requires is a global political set of actions to begin it's not just a targets as the the Paris climate accords, which sort of are in place, but do they work? We don't know the US pulled out of them under Donald Trump. You know, the UN can put this out. But does the UN have the power to compel its membership to deal with this in and start to find practical solutions? No, the U N can can barely enforce a ceasefire in Syria. It certainly can't take a problem of this scale and say to China, you cannot do this in your development. After after centuries and centuries of impoverishment because of all the reasons we know colonialism, and so on now in the last fifty years, you have brought three hundred people who listening to understand this in the last fifty years three hundred million people in China, which is just a tiny tiny minority. But it's a minority of the population is essential. Have become middle class in the sense that I'm middle class or middle class and the population of America's through hundred million. So they didn't have brought twenty percent of their population, which is three hundred million people to a level of wealth where they want to consume as you and I want to. Because I I just do it as as a matter, of course. How are you going to legislate that take another example, I know Monaco is popular in Brazil, so Geijer Bolsonaro campaigned on enough of this not cutting down the Amazon forest. It is important for economic development. I'm going to take away these rules that for the last decade or fifteen years..

What will House Democrats fight the Trump administration on first?

"Guest today are Jacob para killers deputy head of the US and America's program Chatham house, and Michael Goldfarb, the journalists and broadcast welcome both. And as promised an extended look tonight at the first US midterm elections that anybody bother candidates unusually punk tilles citizens and friendless cranks has ever cared about. Not for the first or last time president Donald Trump's in addressing effect on politics has not had quite the outcome. He might have desired. The Trump has failed the vote as a big victory. This is a little like hailing Eric Trump as a future Nobel prize winning physicist. I e an active heroin optimism, though, Trump's Republicans consolidated their grip on the Senate. They did lose the house of representatives that press conference from which we played a clip at the top of the show is ongoing as far as it's possible to tell Trump has not yet started hurling the actual furniture at the assembled journalists. It does seem to be only a matter of time. Jacob does Donald Trump actually have any reason to celebrate. I think the the Senate is I mean, he has reason celebrate it's not unpredictable reason celebrate the Democrats did pretty well in the Senate relative to the number of races that were actually up for election. Relative to where those elections were being held many of them being in states that went for Trump just two years ago that said the looks like depending on the outcome in Montana. Arizona it looks as though Mitch McConnell will be commanding at least fifty two and possibly fifty three or at a stretch fifty four votes, which means that he will have an even freer hand to pass through nominees from Trump, whether those are future cabinet officials federal judicial appointments even potential next supreme court Justice. So that is a reason celebrate and if he's thinking in longer term since the twenty twenty and twenty twenty two cycles quite as rosy for the Republicans. It gives them a little bit more leeway. It means that the Democrats have to work that much. Harder to take back the Senate and potentially face a second term, President Trump with a unified Democratic Congress. But the house is a disaster for him. There's no sugar coating that on which subject Michael that is the one thing we do definitely know for sure is that the Republican party no longer control the house of representatives. How constrained does? I mean, obviously constrains any president. But this particular president how constrained is he likely to be by Democratic Congress. Well, it depends first of all let me put a caveat in on any outsor- here. It depends on if if the Democrats can get themselves together and had some big if. And and behave in a you know, like they have a backbone, and it's not clear, you know, what? I mean, Nancy Pelosi is the speaker of the house in coming in in theory. But she may face the challenge, she's seventy eight she knows more about where everybody's skeletons are hanging, and that's very useful. But you know, there has to be a changing of the guard. Sometimes having said that let me answer your question. Andrew the house, oh has become the battleground going back twenty five years to nineteen ninety four when Newt Gingrich and led the Republican charge on the contract with America congress. Most people listening to this probably still in grade school when that happened, but it has more than set the tone for the following quarter-century. They have accumulated power in the house to do two things in a really important one is subpoena. Power. And I can I can envision a sequence where Robert Mueller who who's been. You're not related. We are not no he has been decorous point during this election because he's a decorous kinda guy. He's a Republican of the old school Mueller will eventually produce his report the Democrats control the house now, they control all the committees. If there's a question about banking. You will see subpoenas about banking? If there's a question about Trump's relationship with the Russians you will see the foreign relations committee subpoena hang him about that. They will tie her up in more paper than Donald Trump's lawyers used to tie up people trying to get paid by Donald Trump back in the days when he was just a real estate developer.

"I'm Andrew Miller on today show tonight more than any night. I hold in my heart, nothing but love for this country and for all its citizens, whether they supported me are Senator Obama, whether they supported me or Senator Obama. I wish godspeed to the man who was my former opponent and will be my president, the light Senator John McCain, extending notably greater courtesy to the forty fourth president than the forty. Fifth has to him my guest, John Everard, and Michael Goldfarb movie discussing this and the days of the top stories, including the UN report, suggesting that several of Myanmar's generals overdue a trip to the Hague Germany's contemplation of conscription not only for young Germans, but for immigrants and refugees and the tribulations of keeping an inexplicably overrated tourist attraction up to date with the strangest prime minister's. That's all coming up on Madore. House on monocle twenty four. So welcome to Midori house. My guest today are John Everard foamy UK ambassador to North Korea and elsewhere. And Michael Goldfarb, the author and broadcaster welcome both. It is not necessary to possess a long memory to recall a time when the death of a long serving American Senator presidential candidate and former fighter pilot, and prisoner of war would have been a moment of bipartisan solemnity as political allies and foes alike. Mourn the passing of a remarkable citizen. We are where we are however, and the death at the weekend of Senator John McCain aged eighty. One has become yet another signifier of the decline of the discourse notable for presidential pettiness extraordinary, even by the rarefied standards of same already established by Donald Trump to which we, we will get a bit to McCain. I John he, he has been subject of a lot of admiring reminiscence, these lost forty eight hours or so, but to the people who admire him. McCain do we think admire the man or the politician. I think they probably are a bit of both as a man. He was quite extraordinary surviving five and a bit years of interment in in Vietnam, tortured, horribly on came out, not just a a lie, but with this basically unbroken survived. You know, his aircraft being hit by rogue missile on his own aircraft carrier. No, he's been through the mill and as a politician. He was quite extraordinary. Somebody who's quite prepared to stand up for values regardless of the party line a kit case, the trace his time and time again. And yet company was reelected. I think America's lost quite extorting question Michael. The buck story is well known. These extraordinary there is no gainsaying at all. He survived absolutely unimaginable ordeal as a prisoner of war. In Vietnam. He was a much I think, I think journalists liked him. He was one of those politicians that got good press because he knew how it worked in the. Understood that Joan lists. I mean, first of all, we do is a breed, like a good quote, and we're also quite easily flattered by the pleasant attentions, all of the powerful, but was much these actual voting record to admire all once you take all the other stuff aside, and that's not to belittle the other stuff. We'll see just basically a fairly stock Republican. He was the man who took Barry Goldwater Senate seat, narrow Zona, and he was a, he was a conservative and in the old days, we would have said right wing and would have met one thing. But now right wing means something else entirely and you, you'd better give somebody an injection of Thorazine when you say right wing about people now? No, he was. He was very much a conservative. The difference was that he understood that in the Senate where he was based, you know, you're not going to get one hundred percent of what you want legislatively. And so he worked on a couple of key issues with people. He got caught very early in his career with his hand in the cookie jar. Because he took money from a notorious donor and it was illegal. And you know, he, he said, well, look, this is the kind of money you need to run for office. So then he worked very closely with Russ Feingold who was democrat and one of the most liberal members of the Senate to try and get some kind of campaign finance reform which they did..

"We should consider starting this program like that. His story was made famous by Robin Williams who was nominated for an Oscar in good morning, Vietnam the film of Crans life which made more than thirty. Yes ago with me in the studio is the veteran journalist, broadcast, Michael Goldfarb. It was the exuberance of that on a greeting. The probably most people would know. And I think for couple of seconds, people probably thought that was Robin Williams. It was a world away from what American forces radius ounded the rest of the time. Well, it was I, it was going to same kinds of transitions that every other kind of radio was going through armed forces radio. There's British armed forces, radio is well, I've appeared on that and you know it was transition period from, you know, forties and fifties kinds of DJ -ing that would accompany. You're Frank Sinatra, your big band, swing sounds and Adrian krone, our called it just right. He became up from Pittsburgh and. Facing the draft village people think that the draft in Vietnam was started in the late sixties to meet troop requirements. But in fact, the draft never ended after World War Two, and he was draft fodder. He enlisted in the air force because if you enlisted rather than waiting to be drafted, you had some control over your fate inside the armed services and for variety of reasons. I think he wanted to be, you know, proper airman. But if you've got trained to fly than you owed the military an extra year service. So he opted to go into into radio which he'd been doing. You know, since he was a kid started what he's twelve. Yeah. I mean, it's funny because. I assume the most of the people listening here are so young that they, they can remember the internet all their lives. Just as I'm so old, I can be a member of the first generation to know television all their lives. But you know, Adrian, our was radio kid, you know, in the thirties and forties, and even the early fifties people's into radio that was the main home entertainment. And that was what formed him. And you know, it was like a lot of the first dick disc jockeys. And this is really interesting is he think of the sixties and you're thinking of the groups and you're thinking of the Beatles and the stones, and the who, and Jimi Hendrix and whatever. And you're thinking the DJ's had to be just like them. But in fact, most of the disc jockeys who who I listen to when I was fourteen or fifteen and the Beatles and the stones were just starting out were guys who were already. Well into their thirties, and probably they were just doing it because they were making a living and is interesting because listening to that shoutout good morning Vietnam. Now kronar had rap about that. He said, you know, I had to be in there at five o'clock. I get up at four o'clock in the morning and I, you know, sometimes didn't make it to the studio without having even had a chance to brush my teeth and often he would go into the studio completely paired and he would spin out that good while he organize that. Yeah. Well, I mean, you had, you know, in those days. I mean, you didn't even have cartridges and cassettes yet. So you had to pull literally pulled discs off shells yet a couple of turntables clothing today, except, you know. Uptown. You know, there's none of that kind of mixing, but he was a good and it would go on good while he was pulling the first songs and you know the newscaster would have left a few sheets of paper with some headlines and maybe the weather..

"Daily with me andrew mullah the office vice president of the united states is frequently derided as trivial and humiliating not least by people who've actually held it for the current incumbent mike pence while it's shortly both of those things it is incumbent by an added element of shia witness by dint of the present occupant of the top job pence is obliged to serve as both apologised and reassurance almost a while rava keeping one on as most presidents do on eventual elevating all of which is why the veep is spending much of this week as he's boss blunders around the world stage on what looks very much like a campaign swing through the american midwest we'll joining me with more on this is the journalist and broadcaster michael goldfarb michael why is mike pence going and making friends with the with the hot land for well you know he's from the heartland i think everybody who listens should just think that ever understand that everyone who works in the trump administer gration is one at one level or another just like the guy who cleans up behind the circus element and basically what trump has done this by initiating for reasons that one cannot imagine the beginnings of a trade war with china a he's had to go out into the midwest because when trump initiates the trade war he doesn't think oh well our farmers in the midwest who voted for me grow of soybeans and we export them to china exports row rental anymore well th this this is what this is about because the chinese not being stupid have of course introduced retaliatory tariffs a night having produced them against the people most likely to voted for donald trump among them the soifer commas of the midwest is mike pence just going to tell them it will be okay or is he gonna tell them will all be okay when i'm president we'll this is america he's not going to talk to voters he's talking going to talk to deeppocketed republican donors to remind them hey look the guy gave you the tax cut and he we can educate him about the foolishness of the tariffs you just keep giving us money so we can control both houses of congress after the midterms in november as we do now to the voters he's going to simply remind them that don't worry about the trait don't worry about it don't worry it's above our heads of our bay grades he's going to give you another conservative supreme court nominee he's just done it and we'll get rovigo wade overturned by hooker by crook and this this is you know what he has to remind people now the fact that he is they're doing this to me suggests i mean partially it is midterm campaigning but it is also july in the midterms aren't until november and the real campaigning won't start till the end of september beginning of october so it does indicate to me that he has heard through the republican national committee that you know people are getting a little bit nervous about these economic policies and so he's gone out in july to begin to smooth some ruffled feathers and to make sure that the money keeps flowing in from rich republicans what do we know about or at least how much fun can we have imagining the relationship between penson trump it's not really possible is it the demand of mike pence's views and principles actually respect deny all likes donald trump well you know i i'm not sure about that you may remember you know more than a year ago when trump had that infamous bull have the cameras in round the cabinet table and we'll go do around robin and everybody has to tell me how great ions coming back to know the.

"Now so welcome to madari house my guests today are michael goldfarb author and broadcaster and brian class fellow in comparative politics at the department of government at the london school of economics welcome both and we will start by anticipating the degree to which every non american member of nato is not looking forward to next week's summit of the organization in brussels us president donald trump never a fan of this or indeed any alliance has been scaling up both his rhetoric and demands doubtless encouraged by new national security adviser john bolton whose preferred model of international cooperation is one in which everyone else does what the united states tells them president trump has said before and is saying again that nato's of twenty eight members of feckless freeloading wilshire's or words to that effect brian first of all do we think he has yet entirely grasped how nato works no he keeps on talking about how they don't pay into nato adequate sums now i actually agree with trump on one thing about this which is that i think that people who have countries that have made a commitment of two percent defense spending should spend two percent on defense this is two percent of the gdp exactly that being said the way he's going about it is extremely stupid and counterproductive not only does it make it more difficult for governments in the european union and other parts of nato to actually hit those targets because trump is so toxic in those domestic constituencies but also the way that he talks about nato members and also the fact that he's imposing tariffs on them means that there is actually a major rift for me at the core of nato which is vladimir putin's long term goal is to drive a wedge between the transatlantic alliance and to splinter the united states from its european allies which basically has been impossible up until trump and now is becoming much more likely heading into this medium michael if it wasn't donald trump making this point would it be more apparent that there was a point here is there an argument which holds that since nineteen forty nine the rest of the western world has been kind of putting its feet up while the united states underwrites everyone else's national defense yet but i mean it's not been a gift has it i mean there's a quid pro quo across a wide range of issues that have nothing to do with national security in defense and i mean individual nations security not american national security america after the war was in the position to reorganize the economic institutions that run that that oversee global trade continues up until donald trump to do that is a wide range of quids and pro quos and i mean i was thinking about this just yesterday and it was not even knowing that we'd be talking about it today's that can you imagine a world in which the american nuclear umbrella wasn't over europe and yes britain has a nuclear deterrent so does france but the real umbrella the big shade comes from america during the cold war can you imagine a half a dozen wealthy european nations each trying to get its own nuclear weapon i mean the whole nonproliferation world exists because america has been able to put this nuclear umbrella around western europe so i think that it's a bit naive which isn't to say that democratic presidents as well as republican presidents have asked germany which doesn't and other countries which don't to perhaps you know pony up their fair share and more importantly in that brief fifteen year window when the american the pucks counter was really at its height up to the collapse of the soviet union did they provide a lot of troops when we were trying to bring separate the warring parties in bosnia not really do do you know so it's a very complicated picture and without doubt in need of reform you know trump isn't about that he's not capable of understanding what reform is he's about babies bathwater and getting a lot of headlines in conjuring the spectacle there of a world without nato you have thank you for this inadvertently trailed this weekend's coming dishes of the foreign desk which considers exactly that prospect that's live midday.

"Sunday michael goldfarb i wonder as it relates to north korea do you feel that with regards to north korea it's the president speaking for himself casey speaking for the nation how do we parse what different people are saying about north korea well i think that this this is the nub of everything i i think that the president does speak for himself and he tweets out and you know the in in bannon's exit interview is parting shot at least he bannon understood that there is no military solution i mean there is no military solution uh we've you've probably been over it a hundred times as to why there isn't um because seoul would disappear fairly quickly you know and it was it's devastating to hear the tape again at the end of the week and all maybe which i'm sorry michael maybe we should be clear there there may be a military endgame there may be a military option but not a good military solution not a military solution that doesn't end with well there wasn't a good good one in 1950 to 1950 too but it just it it's impossible because the chinese are an and the russians have their points of view but i i mean just go back to to rex tillerson if you listen to that you can almost here how disgruntled tears and one has the image watching america from london as i do regularly that the president tweets and in the rest of the day what what's left of the state department apparatus is busy on the phone calling embassies and and capital's all over the world to say he doesn't mean it this is really what the policy will be you know whatever that might be editon cure snow a p j crawley thinks about this because you cannot.

"You're listening to midori house a monocle 24 with me on drew still with me james rojas an michael goldfarb now in his first interview with foreign media since becoming france's prime minister eduard felipe offered an interesting take on the underlying principles to what is becoming to be known as mechanism that being the ideology underpinning president emmanuel macron's political vision such as we mean mortals are able to comprehend it when asked by the financial times if a flexible labour market tax cuts for businesses and scaling down public spending were all taken from the political right the prime minister laughed and said yes what did you expect an michael festival it's not remotely surprising really is it that someone of macron's professional background shooter have some fairly conservative views not at all i mean the the amazing listeners on 41 able to see the magnificently french gesture which company that responds know i know we really enough for me to try and answer your infringe now now plus if my wife and i would not descend your fifty my wife was his if as far as much older than his wife is my wife would be over 100 years old i just thought i throw that into to the conversation looked met macro comes from the same class that is produced french leadership as as long as i've been ascend tint human being his trick was one being younger to detaching himself from the party apparatus is the from which his class select its leadership yeah so if we french prime minister for 25 years has spoken about doing precisely these england loosen up the jobs market we nice to lower taxes because the tax rate is what i mean it's all connected you know you you keep ten percent of your population unemployed.

"I think that's typical president trump style he has been blaming president obama for our own not just to add vis staff but other cases as well i think he's trying to deflect blame from has administration and we're also seeing is different signals from the administration from the defense department from the secretary of state and from the white house on north korea you see these signals also you know this mic signalling also in the middle east so this is i think has become a defining trend for this administration either to blame of president obama or to our sent mixed signals to of allies and foes alike president trump also tweeted this week quote while i greatly appreciate the efforts of president she the president of china and china to help with north korea it has not worked out at least i know china tried unquote now that tweet came just a few hours before the us and china were set to meet here in washington this week to talk about north korea michael goldfarb do you think this impacted the negotiations at all it's really hard to say a eat there's so many ways to to interpret the last bit of that tweet i know you really tried right could be threatening i know you try or could just be noah sincere way of saying look i i know you tried and we have these other talks in that's more important i think the the question that lies out there with this tragedy is is is this going to accelerate any contemplation of some kind of action against north korea which remains essentially a vassal state of china anyway and in one one hopes that they're still lines of communication going on with china about how to deal with this problematic regime and michael when you see a vassal state you're talking about the deep economic ties basically north resume end exactly show is an end you know i.
