"Know you don't WanNa talk about the inspector general report but testing is still a big issue in this country with the federal government. We're not supposed to stand on street. Corners doing testing. We should say congratulations great job instead of being so horrid in the way you ask. A question was nothing hard about the question. Mr President on March six. You've visited the CDC and you said anyone who wants a task can get a test. That was not true then. It remains untrue. Today any responsible path out of this situation requires much more widespread testing than the US is doing right. Now what is the plan to ramp it up even more sir? How many Americans will be tested by win? Then there's this question from CBS. Wages Yang yesterday. Jared Kushner said the notion of the federal stockpile was it's supposed to be our stockpile it's not supposed to be state stockpiles. That they use. What did he mean by? The president responded by calling that he gotcha question. It's not and saying that the reporter should be ashamed of herself. She shouldn't but Mr President the American people want to know what responsibility do you believe? The federal government has when it comes to aiding states with supplies from the federal stockpile. Colorado's Democratic governor said that FEMA had swooped in and grabbed ventilators. That state was trying to get and then days later you announced that you were giving ventilators to Colorado. Because of the efforts of vulnerable Republican senator from that state. What do you and Jared Kushner mean when you say our stockpile? What is the plan with the stockpile? Then there's this question from mcclatchy Frencesco Chambers paycheck protection program has gotten off to a confusing start for small president. Trump interrupted to disagree criticize chambers for not asking him a quote positive question about how the program had gotten off to a quote tremendous start. Look Mr President. Everyone wants this program to work but the fact remains there are issues with the paycheck protection program. How are those kinks being fixed? What is the plan attacking journalists? Who Ask questions does not make those questions go away it only reveals? You might not have the answers again. Sir. Respectfully what is the plan for a way out of this? Do you have one.

"It and provide productive treatment incredibly challenging ad that that we also have six percent of our population is native American with twenty three distinct sovereign nations as a couple of days ago. Twenty five percent of our cases positive cove nineteen cases are native American in some of these areas particularly in the Navajo nation. You're in a situation where you've got folks living without access to water electricity. A list creates unique challenges. I do think actually the administration is clear that they need to do more. We're looking at a regional strategy to support the leadership of the Navajo Nation between Utah Arizona. New Mexico we're putting outfield hospitals triage centers and I will tell you that the Pueblo nations in New Mexico have really looked at containment strategies for their community. And we're supporting that right where we have roadblocks. Nobody in nobody out. We're delivering food through the National Guard. And we hope this not only slows.

"Welcome back to state of the Union. I'm Jake Tapper. As many families wake up this Easter Sunday there will be one more big change to their routines. Many will not be able to worship at Church yesterday afternoon. New Mexico became the latest state to extend its ban on mass gatherings to include houses of Worship. And joining me now the Democratic governor of New Mexico Michelle Luhan Grisham Governor Luhan Grisham. Thanks so much for joining us and happy Easter to you during this very difficult time. President trump is considering calling for Americans to go back to work easing federal social and physical distancing guidelines as soon as May I. You've predicted the peak in New Mexico. Could come as late as the end of May what will you do if the president calls for an easing of those guidelines on? May First we're going to make the decisions that Safeguard Mexicans right. The everything we do is about protecting lives and first response or a healthcare worker. I think this is the problem with not having a national strategy. If this virus is blind eight borders we had better national strategies and better national data and universal testing and software Amtrak tracing then we can really figure out when opening make sense and actually start to do that in the country. So I'M GONNA do whatever's right for a New Mexico and we've begun looking at recovery options but we aren't GonNa do anything until that peak occurs and we're clear about not having hospitalizations and reducing the number of people that are positive every day in our surveillance and testing efforts. Your office has been relying on data from a company called Descartes labs to track new Mexicans movements to see whether new Mexicans a whole are adhering to social distancing guidelines said. The data comes from millions of cell phones. And you don't know who's cell phone is who's for your constituents out there who might have privacy concerns about this. Can you explain exactly how this data collection is happening? And what oversight there is in the process. Well a couple of things. I think that some folks got confused. That somehow this is state data and stayed effort. And it isn't it's also aggregate cell phone data for the entire country and debt cart. Labs is a data large data firm and they do incredible work. Managing any huge types of information that can be beneficial. So we treat this tool that allows us to figure out whether our social distancing more just looking at the cases but look at where people are traveling how long. They're traveling and get a sense about whether or not we need to do something else. That limits person to person contact and enhances our Social distancing in terms of oversight. It was anything that we thought in this company or anybody else that was breaching already robust federal or state laws protecting privacy. A we wouldn't have a relationship and be a we do the appropriate accountability but they're just using aggregate data. We don't have any idea who any of the the cell phone numbers belong to not just in New Mexico but nowhere in the country. But it is a very useful tool to get a sense. About how social distancing works and what? The benefits of that are I want to listen to the surgeon general at the White House Task Force briefing on Friday where he addressed racial disparities. In Corona virus cases and deaths take a listen the chronic burden of medical ills is likely to make people of color especially less resilient to the ravages of cove nineteen and if possibly in fact likely that the burden of social ills is often contributing now..

"Are going out to wear masks all of which the governor says is helping slow the spread and the Republican governor of Arkansas as Hutchinson joins me now governor Hutchinson Happy Easter. Thanks for joining us on this difficult difficult time you sat on Friday. The doctor fancy called you and gave his quote stamp of approval to the measures. You've taken in your response to the virus but Arkansas is one of just a handful of states. That has not yet put in place in official. Stay at home order. Do you think other governors have made a mistake by putting in place? Stay at home orders. No not at all it. Just reflects The Flexibility Estate Needs I applaud New Jersey and New York. They've had to really lockdown. They have a high density population but we have less density and our population here in Arkansas. And I think we can't take this targeted approach which is proven to be effective. We've on the first day we had one case. I declared public emergency. We proceeded as you said the closes schools and other things. And then we're targeting where we need to but look at the results right now. We have about eighty hospitalizations and we have eight thousand hospital beds. And of course they're empty because we're not doing elective surgery and so we're beating that trend line Where are in terms of our cases? It's better we're increasing our testing and and right now I'd like to think that we're at the peak but we're at least flat and hopefully we won't peak later we'll peak sooner but there's a lot of hope and optimism this Easter that are tough. Time is behind it. We're going to be getting better. I sure hope that's right but let me ask you. You talked about the density playing a role and I understand that Arkansas is not like New York in that respect but little rock is and you are not letting different little towns or cities or localities in Arkansas. To make their own state homeowners if they want to the mayor of Little Rock that's making his situation more difficult. Why not let mayors do impose a stay at home if they want? We have a good partnership with the mayor's we've negotiated where there's curfew where it's helpful. They can close park if they need to. And so those are some of the targeted responses. But if you look at this. We want to take the long-term approach to this. And you're not going to win simply by lockdown because there's no such thing as a true lock down where everybody stays home and does not go out. You're going to have if we put a shelter in place order today. Tomorrow we'd have seven hundred thousand arkansans. That would be going out on the streets going to work. The most important message is that you wear your mask you do your social distancing and the people of Arkansas have embraced that and again it is given US success. That's the focus that we have and that way we can be engaged in this over the long term because I hope that this ends soon but we all coming back next year. Or we're going to be prepared for this. And you cannot lockdown. You cannot shelter in place for six months and so our approach emphasizing the mask the social distancing being in it for long term being able to have a modicum of business. That's going ahead and function out there. That's important balance that we have in our state. I share Dr Fao. Chew when I spoke to him this week that if we need to do more we will do more. And so. That's always an option on the table if we have to shelter in place but right now what we're doing approved me successful targeted approach. Well let me ask you because I was looking at the Arkansas numbers. One month ago your state had one case in zero deaths. Two weeks ago you had more than four hundred cases and five deaths now you have more than twelve hundred cases and at least twenty five deaths. I mean something that we've learned from watching places such as Italy. Spain Washington State California is that extreme measures do work in terms of controlling. How many people get the disease and how many people die from it? Why not take these extreme steps more extreme steps and you've you've taken that have been proven to work so far given the fact that it does seem like Arkansas is still on the upslope. Well whatever you look at The twelve hundred cases that we have that is more than a thousand short of the projections. Whenever you look the projections we were going to be skyrocketing whenever we started this. We were looking at war memorial stadium as a potential place to house patients. But today we have let me emphasize here. We have eighty that are hospitalized because a cove in nineteen we have eight thousand hospital beds available. That means we're not doing elective surgeries. We've really shut down a lot of our hospitals out there. We have this excess capacity. We have eighty. This hospital is an S. remaining steady you look at our surrounding states in two counties in our surrounding states they're more cove in nineteen cases. They are in the entire state of Arkansas. And so we're doing that. Targeted approach to prevent theft. Spread here this date and we'll do more if need be well. I certainly hope it continues to work. You have said that you support moving forward with no excuse. Mail an absentee voting in your state given the issues with in-person voting that could be caused by corona virus. So just to be clear that means you do not believe that. Widespread absentee voting fraud exists. We have absentee voting in Arkansas. But you have to have a reason for it. We have some special elections recently and and I said you can have no excuses. My emergency powers. We need to have that in November as well in the event we still have this national emergency because we want to have people be able to Safely Vote No with our absentee voting system. I'm not concerned about the fraud. Aspect of it. That's absentee is not Maili in its absentee no excuse voting but they vote in person. Today is Easter Sunday. Obviously your state has banned indoor gatherings of more than ten people but it exams church services as long as individuals their follow social and physical distancing at the church services. You have been discouraging large religious gatherings because of an earlier outbreak at a church in your state Which infected more than three dozen people are they going to be consequences for anybody in Arkansas? Who goes to church services today and violates the guidelines you have called for well because their guidelines is not going to be any arrests made or citations made But the consequence would be that. If there's a serious health risk because of a gathering we'll give a very specific directive and have a discussion with church which happened in one North East Arkansas. The pasture responded very quickly when our public health officials went there. So I'll just virtually all of the churches in Arkansas following the guidelines very carefully. They're just as concerned about their parisioners. As is I am as governor. And so we're worshiping remotely this Easter and I expect everybody to make sure they follow those social distancing guidelines and not gather whenever you have a a risk all right governor Hutchinson. God bless you and the people of Arkansas on this Easter Sunday. We appreciate your taking the time to talk to us today. Thanks so much. Jake appreciate it. Could data from your cell phone.

"Governor says he is seeing some cause for hope joining me now. The Democratic Governor of New Jersey Phil Murphy Governor Murphy Happy Easter to you on this very difficult weekend let me ask you. The first case in your state was reported on March fourth. Now not even six weeks later. You stand it over. Fifty eight thousand cases a key corona virus model cited by the White House Task Force says New Jersey reached its peak last Wednesday. Does that match with what you're seeing on the ground first of all happy Easter Jake? It's good to be with you. Yes or no lost two thousand one hundred eighty three blessed souls from our state which is just staggering. We look at a handful probably four or five different models. Some of the some of those models in their best case scenarios have us in a peak right now some of them in a more sobering reality have US peaking many weeks from now in higher numbers. I hope it's the former not the latter again. We look at a whole range of inputs and try our best to stay out ahead of this base. Our decisions based on the facts and president trump is considering calling for a reopening of the US economy and relaxing the social and physical distancing and stay at home guidelines on May first potentially. That's just nineteen days away. Do you think parts of New Jersey will be ready to try to go back to something resembling normal in that time by? May I listened? Jake if we are. I'll be the happiest guy not maybe even in New Jersey but in America it would be great. I do know this. There's a sequence here that we have to abide by and that is we need a healthcare recovery a health recovery first and then the economic recovery. It has to come in that sequencing and I fear we open up too early and we have not sufficiently made that health recovery and cracked the back of this virus that we could be pouring gasoline on the fire. Even advertently so I'll listen. I'll be again. I'll be the happiest guy around. If we're able to reopen at that point and we will continue. This is sort of each day. You have a different set of data that you didn't have the day before but we will continue to do everything we can to stay ahead of this governor Cuomo of your neighboring state of New York talked on Friday about there being a potential second wave of the disease in your area and you just heard Dr. Chee say something similar about his concerns about what might happen in the fall. I know that you everybody wants to go back to some semblance of normal opening up a business as soon as possible. Is there a plan that you have to keep people safe? Even after some of these restrictions have been lifted. I mean that's it's not job number one because right now. The House is on fire job. Number one is to put the fire out but it is the job right. It's job one a in fact we've spent a significant amount of time this weekend sort of beginning to war game on that you mentioned. Governor Cuomo one of the one of the many areas that he and I agree on. Is that in this respect? Whether it's testing contact tracing the rules of the road such that you don't have. You don't have unintended consequences. You get a different set of policies on one side of the Hudson versus the other or one side of the Delaware River in our case or the other is we need to do this regionally. And that's something that we're committed to. I know he's committed to to make sure that. Not only. Did we bring our states to a closure together in harmony but when we reopen. We're doing so. It brought harmony as well including the testing and the other healthcare infrastructure. We're GONNA need to make sure we don't see another round two of this in terms of testing infrastructure. Where is New Jersey when it comes to testing? Do you have enough test. Do you have enough labs to do the tasks do you have. Your healthcare workers have enough personal protective equipment. Do your patients have enough ventilators? Just give us a quick update on that. If you could broadly speaking jake and there's there's more nuance to the answer. Depending on the specific the answer is no in other words. We have enough testing material personal protective equipment. Our health our heroic healthcare workers are stretched incredibly thin so so we are testing only for symptomatic patients. That's a decision we made from day. One I think we've got the most tests taken of any American state. We've got the eleventh largest population so we're punching above our weight but we do not have universal testing and we would love to have that. We're fighting to stay ahead on bed capacity ventilators that are constantly running thin. The medicine you need for those ventilators the personal protective equipment and the relief from the bullpen for our healthcare workers. So we are every minute of every day on all of those fronts doing everything we can to stay out ahead of it. You close schools on Martine you issue to stay statewide stay at home order on. March twenty first. Both of those came after Ohio closed schools in California issued. Stay at home order former. Cdc Director. Tom Freidan told the New York Times that the death toll New York City could have been cut in half if closures have been put in place a week or two earlier. Do you think the same is true for New Jersey? Should New Jersey of acted sooner than it did. Listen we acted Jacobite soon as any American state I mean along with Ohio California Washington New York. We were among the first. And we're probably as I sit here today. The tightest but boy we will do a postmortem police got. I hope we do a national postmortem. That's not partisan that just asks the tough questions that were asked by the Nine Eleven Commission on my dad shared by one of my mentors governor. Tom Kaine here in New Jersey. We're going to need to do the same thing in our state The the WOULDA COULDA deserves a important focus right now again. The House is on fire. We gotta put that the fire in the house out and then we got to begin to get back on our feet and then at that point we have to look back and say what can we have done differently governor. Murphy God bless you. God bless the citizens of New Jersey. Stay in touch. Let us know what you need. We really appreciate your taking the time. Thanks for happy. Easter my next guest is one of the few governors who has.

"Better testing capability. Much Much Beth Sarah surveillance capability and the ability to respond with counter-measures with drugs. That work that it will be an entirely different ballgame. So number one. I hope we don't have a rebound that would make this very difficult as we get into November but if we do and there certainly is a possibility. I'm a realist. It certainly is a possibility. Hopefully we'll be able to respond to that rebound in a much more effective way than what we see now in January February march. You're a man of medicine a man of science but today's Easter Sunday. And I know that you're Catholic face faith and your Jesuit education played an important role in your upbringing.

We're going through a historic ordeal right now. This this is people are going to write about this. As a terrible affront on us as a nation to a health into a wellbeing.

"Tapper in Washington where the state of our Union is looking for signs of hope? It is Easter Sunday but the country is still facing a dark reality. There are now more than half a million corona virus cases in the United States and more than twenty thousand dead and the last forty eight hours alone. The disease has taken more Americans than died on nine eleven. Still as the numbers reach almost unimaginable highs. There are some small signs that the measures that we have all been taking might be working in New York with more reported cases than any other country. The number of hospitalizations has somewhat flattened but as the economic pain for Americans grow. President trump is spending the holiday weekend weighing whether or not to change federal guidelines to push governors to reopen the country. By May I of course that decision to lift those restrictions lies with the states and lies with the governor. So this morning we're going to be hearing from three of those leaders but I do want to begin this morning with a vital member of president. Trump's corona virus taskforce the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Dr Anthony fouts you Dr Farsi Happy Easter. And thank you so much for joining us today. The United States reached two thousand deaths in one day for the first time on Friday. The United States has passed Italy now for the most corona virus deaths worldwide. Are we in the worst of it right now the US and Wendy? You think we will start to get out of the worst of it you know. It's it's very difficult to predict Jake but as we head said the last time we spoke and predicted last weekend. This was going to be a really bad week with regard to deaths but as you said at the same time that a a place like New York metropolitan area had a very a really terrible terrible week of suffering and death nonetheless the indications of that part of this machine that drives this outbreak is starting to level off because on the same day that the New York Metropolitan area had the highest number of debts. They had when you look at the admissions the hospitalizations the intensive care and the need to intubate. That not only is flat and it's starting to turn the corner so that's what we're hopeful and it's you know cautious optimism that we are seeing that decrease and if look at the the the patterns of the curves in other countries. Once you turn that corner hopefully we'll see a very sharp decline and then you start thinking about how we can keep it that way and prevent it from resurging when you're starting to think about a gradual reentry of some sort of normality some rolling reentry. So he's trying to balance two things you WANNA make sure you don't do something prematurely and precipitously at the same time you pay attention to the need to try and get back to normal. Last time we spoke on this show. You told me that. In order to to eventually be able to loosen the stay at home and social physical distancing restrictions the United States would need testing in place for quote knowing real time if a person is infected and then getting them out of circulation and contact tracing unquote. When do you think the US will have that capacity? Nationwide for kind of testing. Jake I see. We really can't guarantee every every area of the country but what we're told by the companies and the people who were getting the antibody test which doesn't tell you if a person is infected. It tells you if they've been infected and that's going to be important when you think about getting people back into the workplace but the other point which is an important if you start and when one starts to relax some of those restrictions we know that there will be people who will be getting infected. I mean that is just reality. The critical issue is to be able to in real time. Identify isolate and contact trace. That's quote containment right now. In places like New Orleans and in New York City. We're in mitigation. You mentioned the government is. This is really important. I've spent this week on the phone with a a a considerable number of governors. Some of which I believe. We're going to be on your on your program later on. They really important. I'm deeply impressed. About how much. They care about the balance of preserving the health of their citizens in their state at the same time as they cautiously do this re entry. So you know. I have confidence that with the help that we can do. Federally from from the from the federal government to the fact that the states are really committed to doing it right. I think that combination hopefully is going to get us to where we want to be based on what you know right now. Wendy do you think the country will be ready to take some of these steps to reopen based on the availability of testing. When do you see that happening jake? That's a great question and that's really what I was inferring when I said a rolling reentry it is not going to be a light switch that we say okay it is now June July or whatever clicked the the the light switch goes back on. It's going to be depending where you are in the country the nature of the outbreak that you've already experienced and the threat of an outbreak that you may not have experience so it's going to having to look at the situation in different parts of the country. Obviously New York who ends going through. A terrible ordeal is going to be very different from Arkansas. And you'll hear from the governor shortly and very different maybe from some places on the west coast like Washington state which have been successfully able to prevent that big spike. I think it's going to have to be something that is not one size fits all what do you think it could? It could start. You know I think it could probably start at least in some ways. Maybe next month and again jake. It's so difficult to make those kinds of prediction because they always get thrown back at if it doesn't happen not by you but you know by by an even number of people. We are hoping that at the end of the month. We could look around and say okay. Is there any element here that we can safely and cautiously start pulling back on if so do it if not then just continue to hunker down? And that's what at least from the standpoint of the public health aspect that we look at other decisions are going to have to be made at the level of the president and the governors about what they are going to do with all of the information they get the only thing I and my colleagues public health and medicine can do is to give a projection of the kinds of things. That may or may not happen when you make these steps and I know you're concerned about The idea of what happens if happens too quickly prematurely and then precipitously the US or that area of the US goes back to A dire situation the University of Washington professor. Chris Murray who I know you're familiar with his work. He runs the model frequently cited by Your Task Force. He told CNN That he is worried that if the country opens up too soon quote the risk of rebound is very great and according to his model when it comes to stay at home and social and fiscal distancing measures quote if we were to stop at the national level by May first we are seeing a return to almost where we are now sometime in July. Do you agree with him? And what happens if parts of the country? Try to go back to some semblance of normal but the testing and contact tracing capacity is not there. Well I mean Chris is is a very good model at and and we relied on him heavily to give us some capability of making some projections. But I believe what they were referring to in that model jake and it's important. Is I agree. That's why I said a few moments ago if you just say okay it's whatever you know. May I click? Turn turn the switch on. Obviously if you do it in all non way. There's an extraordinary risk of there. Being a rebound so in that respect that model is correct. And that's why I mean it is not an all or none. It's going to be something that you gradually and carefully in different parts of the country in different ways. Try to get back. I totally agree that all of a sudden we decide okay. It's May whatever and we just turn the switch on. That could be a real problem and everybody knows that so. It's going to be something different from that. It's going to be a concerted way to take a look and try doing it. Appropriately depending upon where you are in the country and what. The nature of the outbreak is in that part of the country. And I'm sure you'll hear the same thing from the governor's South Korea and the US announced their first confirmed corona virus cases at virtually the same time in late January. If you take a look at where we are right now in the US the US now has fifty times more cases on almost one hundred times more fatalities than South Korea. Meanwhile while the US makes up only about four point two five percent of the world's population the US has thirty percent of the world reported coronavirus cases and almost twenty percent of the reported corona virus deaths. Sanjay Gupta said. That's this is all because we got started too late in the. Us is that right. Do you agree you know. It isn't as simple as that Jake I'm sorry I mean to just say this is all happening because we got started too late. Obviously if you look. Could you have done something? A little bit earlier would have had an impact. Obviously but where we are right now is the result of a number of factors the size of the country the heterogeneity of the country. It's I think it's a little bit unfair to compare us to South Korea where they had an outbreak in day Goo and they had the capability of immediately essentially shutting it off completely in a way that we may not have been able to do in this country so obviously I would have been nice if we had a better head start but I don't think you could say that we all where we are right now because of one factor. It's very complicated jake. The New York Times report yesterday that you and other top officials wanted to recommend social and physical distance guidelines to president trump as far back as the third week of February but the administration didn't announce such guidelines the American public until March sixteenth. Almost a month later. Why you know Jake. As I've said many times we look at it from a pure health standpoint. We make a recommendation often. The recommendation is taken. Sometimes it's not but we it is what it is. We all where we are right now. Do you lives could have been saved. If social distancing physical distancing stay at home measures it started third week of February instead of mid-march. You Know Jake again. It's would have what could have I. It's very difficult to go back and say that I mean. Obviously you could logically say that if you had a process that was ongoing and you started mitigation earlier you could have saved lives. Obviously no one is going to deny that but what goes into those kinds of decisions is complicated. But you're right. I mean obviously if we add right from the very beginning shut everything down. It may have been a little bit different but there was a lot of pushback about shutting things down back then. Do you think it will be safe in November for voters to physically go to vote at the poll? I hope so jake. I can't guarantee it. I believe that if we have a good measured way of rolling into this steps towards normality that we hope by the time we get to November. That will be able to do it in a way. Which is the standard way. However and I don't WanNa be the pessimistic person. There is always a possibility as that as we get into next fall and the beginning of early winter that we could see a rebound and hopefully hopefully what we've gone through now and the capability that we have from much much..

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham gives update on coronavirus in New Mexico

"New Mexico has been one of the states that took advanced measures to flatten the curve and slow the spread governor Michelle lu Han Grisham has been at the forefront of that battle and she's here to talk more about the impact code nineteen is had on her state welcome governor we appreciate your time and we know just this past Monday you extended the emergency stay at home order to April thirtieth it had been it April tenth do you believe that will be enough time it's really hard to say I know that it's too soon to change what we're doing in terms of our instructions to stay home and we also limited further what we identified as exception ins to businesses that needed to be closed in order to make sure that folks are staying home I think the whole country is looking at when can we safely began to think about moving into going back to work and engaging with our families again and I used to say it's too soon to tell but April thirtieth is where we are today and we are prepared to make additional tough decisions if we need to I know that you spoke with president trump about being very concerned for the Navajo Nation during the corona virus pandemic access to food is one of your greatest concerns how are you addressing this well it's those food and water and just sort of essential services and supplies in New Mexico we've got twenty three different sovereign nations native American tribes the Navajo Nation area in their chapters which is their local bodies of government you can have individuals that are forty miles from any kind of a grocery store gas station and so we are using the National Guard to set up food delivery stations were working on any number of sort of triage centers so that with limiting it needing to come in to get supplies were also not allowing anyone to be in a situation where they don't have what they need to you need a stay at home instruction and it's really tough this is an underserved population in every state it's true in New Mexico all of our sovereign nations by the federal trust responsibilities never been that they don't have adequate health care and other support and so this is just an apparatus population we're beginning to see real risks all of our sovereign nation so we're doing extra community containment measures that extra support and we're working very closely with the national service to increase testing every single one of our publicist for us and speaking of all of those big needs you have in your state do you believe the federal government has been responding with enough so far and now I can there's not a governor I think in the country that's gonna say it's enough I will tell you that the federal government has been much more responsive about trying to figure out what we're gonna do to adequately serve and protect tribal communities in the state another states we're looking at a regional potential operation for Utah in Arizona the Navajo Nation is in all three of those states they have increased our opportunity by declaring a national dental emergency for the state so that we can call up more of the guard they're making sure that we don't have an interruption in our food supply they're giving us field hospitals I think we're getting the right attention is any state in the position to how security for food and he he he and related supplies no we are not there yet yeah I am aggressively working on additional testing even though we're one of the states that signed fairly well because we got into the game of testing early but in so you can do a complete surveillance and testing in your state you are not prepared to serve your state adequately and this continues to be a source of significant frustration

"And the way that we're designing these systems in the future. Aren't we valuing that person's life less than in a way, the compared to a much more perfect or normalized personal without any of the possibility of getting that, right? It's such a valid, and it's such an important question. And I've spoken with lots of down family families in preparation of this of this book, and certainly for any child that exists with down syndrome. They have the absolute right to be given every opportunity to thrive like everybody else and many parents with down syndrome feel that their children are true blessings, greater blessings, then and other children, and they are they are right. And so I would hate for people to feel that that what I'm talking about in the book and elsewhere is any way denigrating. With down syndrome or other disorders. But we have to flip the question because the question that parents are going to be asking is you have fifteen pre implanted embryos, and you could pick to implant any one of them, and you have all of this information. And you know, let's say two of those embryos have down syndrome, would you if it was a choice, would you affirmatively? Choose to implant the embryo with down syndrome when down syndrome, we know. I mean, we know all the high functioning children with down syndrome. There are lots of health risks associated with down the lifespan of people with down syndrome is on average less than than than everybody else. And when I framed the question that way to down parents, it's a different kind of conversation. But I'm really mindful that I because if I'm saying or if the implication of what I'm writing about is that we are going to have less incidence of down syndrome in the future. Which is just a fact. It's already happening. What does that mean? What's the message to people who already have down syndrome, and we just really need to be incredibly sensitive on those on those issues who owns our jeans, and one of the things that is underlying all of those is that we all have to be screened. We all sat right have it in a lab, etc. Cetera who owns I guess the parts of me that make me who I am. Right. And how do I have some atonomy right giving that away? So the easy answer. But it's too easy is obviously you own your jeans, and no one can take them from you. And yet we have ten million people who've done their cheap, cheek swabs and signed a little form and sent their genetic material to companies in many cases with no protection. And that these companies are then selling your genetic information to big pharma. And that's. A real issue. People don't recognize that your genetic information is more valuable to you than your Bank information of your credit card information because in the United States, we have a genetic information nondiscrimination act which protects you against discrimination in your health insurance, but not in your life insurance. So imagine if you sent in your cheek swab and your life insurance company buys it. And they know more than, you know, about when you may die whether you're likely to have a long life or a short life, that's really valuable information. And so a country like China that has very poor privacy protections could conceivably have a tremendous advantage in acid accessing these big data pools. And so there's a conflict between the personal need for privacy. And the societal need for this information to be shared the reason why I've written this book is that we need to begin imagining where we're going because we have huge decisions that we're going to need to make now. And we're really going to need to think deeply about who. Are we what are our values? How are those values expressed in the decisions that we are making today that will in many ways determine how these technologies play out in the future? Jamie mental. Thanks so much for joining us. My pleasure. Provocative. Indeed, that's all we have time for thanks for what chain by from London.

"Planet can also make governor young people are helping us get it done. They are leading the charge governor, Michelle Luhan Grisham. Thank you so much joining us from Santa Fe tonight now while the. Democrats jostle to try and shape the future of their party, the world of science is shaking up something even bigger, and that is the future of humanity DNA is becoming a commodity one that can be written in hacked, like a piece of IT, the futures, Jamie. Mattel says genetic engineering now threatens the very things that make us human in his new book hacking, Darwin he wounded could be honest for good all descend into a new form of a kind of an arms race, and he sat down to discuss this with Hari Sreenivasan. Right now when you are pregnant there are screening tools available to figure out if there's a horrible disease a hardship that you're about to face you have. A tool in the book where you look forward and into a fertility clinic twenty five years from now. Right. And you kind of lay out the scenarios help our audience. Explain what that could look like right now, most people who are pregnant in the United States have noninvasive prenatal testing to learn more about the embryo that they are carrying, and if there are significant problems, those parents, those mothers are often faced with a very difficult choice, and the choice is to carry that that embryo to term or to abort, and whatever anybody's us are of the politics of abortion. That's an extremely painful excruciating decision for parents, but we are moving increasingly towards using technology that already exists for preimplantation genetic screening. So rather than having to make that determination. Once the mother is already pregnant, let's say you have fifteen fertilized eggs, also called zygote s-, and you can screen all of those and you. Can figure out which are the ones which are perhaps carrying deadly diseases and not implant those and then going forward into the future because we're going to have so much more information so much more understanding about our own complex genomics, the choices that we're going to make that we will make in the context of decisions made at fertility clinics is not just about disease states, but about all kinds of traits, and then beyond that, and certainly within that twenty five year timeframe, we are also going to be able to do something that we already can do but not well, which is make a relatively small number of gene edits on these pre implanted embryos, either to eliminate risks or perhaps to provide enhancements. So let's talk about that. There's eliminate risk quotient that I don't think most people have a problem with right? But then there's this enhancement idea where people do have a problem with it. Right. When you can start to say selectively say, well, I want to go ahead and. If I had if I had figured out the gene combinations for longevity, right or for height or for IQ personality. Yeah. Well, I'd like to engineer my kid to give them an edge, or at least make them baseline. If that's what everyone else is doing and a lot of people. If you ask them, how do you feel about genetic engineering? We'll say exactly what you've said they'll say well uncomfortable with therapeutic applications and I'm not comfortable with enhancement. But when you push them when you say are helped me draw the line between where therapy ends and enhancement begins. It's really really difficult because there's a gray area in many many circumstances. Let's say somebody it looks like a child is going to be three feet tall. People would say. Well, that's really sure it. It's hard to live. If you're three feet tall. There's a lot of discrimination their health health issues. Does it make sense to use some kind of genetic engineering to make sure that you have a child? That is taller than three feet on. I think people would say well that maybe that sounds right because we mean being three feet tall. That's a difficult way to live, but not not everybody would say that. And then you well four feet tall. Or what are we going to define like a specific height where that's below that height that is therapeutic application and be on that height is an enhancement, and you can go to many many traits, but different societies will have different views and some societies will vary legitimately say. We only want to address the most dangerous genetic diseases and that will be fine. But other societies will say, hey, we recognize that there are benefits to be had that we think we think as society did maybe it's better to have a higher average IQ among our population. We think that will make us more competitive. We think that will help us have new innovations that will make life better for everybody. And so there's no right or wrong answer. But these will be real choices. Once you start describing the aggregate impact of what these tiny genetic modifications can do I think that gets very scary for people to say. Well, this is what I read about in college in the Uber Mench. Yeah. Right. This is a world like was describing the movie Gatica, right? All of a sudden, we have a society of haves and have nots based on whether you had access to this technology is more likely than not not going to be equally distributed to all parts of the world at the same time. Right. So we're going to have a class or a country or county of people that would have this access and then a generation later. They're perfect. You know, six foot tall have every advantage hierarchy you, and then here's a whole country or continent that doesn't have it. Yeah. I'm really sensitive to this. You this issue? I come from Kansas City. The reason I come from Kansas City is that my father and grandparents were resettled there after the war as survivors of the holocaust victims of Nazism, and what the Nazis saw themselves as do. Doing was applying Darwin's principles. And so for me as a child in many ways of the holocaust victims of the holocaust. I'm very very mindful that what I'm talking about could be interpreted as a form of eugenics, and that's really a big deal. But on the other hand when you talk to people, and you say, would you if you could choose from fifteen of your pre implanted embryos, and you knew that two of them were going to have some kind of heritable genetic disease that was going to been sure that they die before their ten years old. Would you choose to implant those embryos and most people say, no. And that's a whatever the word is that's a form of eugenics. So we are going to have to make choices. If you're worried about genetic inequality in the future. The best thing that you can do is worry about inequality now. Because if we if this is the we've we who lives the way we do we were perfectly okay for. To be born with very little opportunity or people who are born in places like the Central African Republic who in in effect have brain damage because their mothers are malnourished. And so their chances of success at life are so much lower than than our kids. If we're okay with that now, how can we expect that we're going to be different in the future? Our government's anywhere close to creating sound policy around this given that not everybody even understands the underlying science. Yes. Oh, some governments are doing better. Some governments are doing worse and some governments are doing nothing when I look around the world, I would say the United Kingdom is probably the best jurisdiction in the world where they are addressing these issues. Very thoughtfully. They have national forums on issues like Mike Okon drill transfer. They have a very effective body called the human fertilization and embryology authority that oversees these these many of these issues that the houses of parliament have had. Full body votes in both houses on issues like like meadow country drill transfer and they have a national health service, which allows rational decisions to be made on a national level here in the United States. The FDA is certainly an excellent and world class agency. But we don't have that level of government wide by let alone population wide by. And we don't have as informed of public on these issues and that certainly creates a danger. And then there are some countries that have nothing and the danger is that certainly in countries like ours, we need to do a lot more. But as these technologies become more widespread and come to be seen as more beneficial. Even if they don't prove to be people will go to where they can get get these benefits if they perceive them as as benefits, it seems like to me, there's three groups that are likely to abuse. This one is dictators who want to create an army of super strong, whatever people. Right. Another is rogue scientists who don't really care for the ethical standards. And we're starting to see a little bit of that. Now and three his parents looking for an edge. So let me quickly dispelled the first two and focus on. So I have advised the US military on this and have talked to them as they brought a group of futurist thinkers together. And my feeling is the real competitive edge is in just super soldiers. I mean, maybe that would be would be possible. But it's kind of a waste it's competitive societies. I mean, that's the which leads to your second point of dictators that if I was thinking, I've written a scifi novel Genesis coat about this about if I were a country. Let's just call it China and my goal was to be highly competitive in the future. And I wanted to use these technologies what might do. So what I would do is. I have a national genetic engineering program focusing on. Embryo selection, made with small amount of of genetic then I would sort people into categories based on their super capabilities based on their genetic profiles. But not just military or sports. It could be business. It could be engineering. It could be math. It could be all sorts of things and then put them into the equivalent of Olympic sports schools, but in all of these different disciplines, and then see who does the best and have a pyramid of these people who are having a genetic likelihood of being great at something. And then get a number of superstars in those areas and invest huge resources in building national champions. So that rogue scientists we've seen that in China last year, John que-, who is certainly a rogue. Scientist extreme doing extremely irresponsible. A work in my view of genetically engineering what became these two two Chinese girls, but they won't have the incentive to do to make these kinds. Of changes on a population wide scale. So they're going to need some kind of mechanism behind them which leads to your third category. Which is parents and everybody would agree that the kind of state sponsored eugenics of Nazism, or what happened in the United States is wrong. But this is going to be very different parents are going to demand these services, particularly once they see if and when they see that there are benefits to be having these benefits would be reducing the roughly three percent risk that parents now have that their children will have some kind of harmful genetic abnormality. And that will be a big driver. But also conferring certain kinds of advantages. I have a friend in Korea and his eleven year old daughter has twelve tutors coming to the house every week in Korea that they had to pass a national law closing their cram schools at ten pm because people are having their seven eight year old kids going to these cram schools seven days a week past midnight to prepare for college entrance exams. They were going to take a decade in the future. And when I asked his friend. I said if you could select your pre implanted embryos to give about a fifteen percent IQ boost to your kids, would you do it. And he looked at me like, I was some kind of idiot. How about everybody would you know that you would they do it. And again, he looked at me like I was like it was like, obviously who wouldn't do that. And so I'm not saying it's right or wrong. I'm just saying some people, and parents are going to want to do this and some parents and maybe countries won't, but there will be real consequences for those decisions. One of the things you keep coming back to his pre implanted embryos, which leads me to ask. Well, we just be having sex for pleasure. Not for procreation. I'm celebrity number of articles on the end of procreative sex. And I believe that whatever the year thirty years from now twenty years from now conceiving of child through sex will seem as dangerous to people as not vaccinating your children is today. Because when you think about it, not vaccinating your children, that's very natural like nature didn't invent vaccines. We developed them and again conceiving a child through good old fashioned. And sex is very natural. It's actually been a great strategy for our species and for all sexually reproducing species. But there are dangers associated with sexual reproduction. And we are going to be able to reduce and in some cases, eliminate many of those dangers, and that will be a choice, and so right now people are carrying diseases that won't exist twenty years from now or thirtyish registers like when you see somebody with polio. If you see a child with polio. What do you think you don't think? Wow. That's terrible fate that that kid has pull you you think we'll something went wrong because kids aren't supposed to have polio. And there'll be lots of genetic diseases and disorders that in the future. If you see somebody with that thing, you say white how did where did the system breakdown because humans in large part aren't getting those diseases anymore. You know, there's going to be someone who safer Jampel lives with a family member who has down syndrome. That's going to say listen.

"Michelle's got the guts to be a great governor. So that puts you your climate and environmental credentials out there. But since you become governor, you talk, you know, you continue to talk a lot about it. And you'll one of more than a dozen states sticking to the international climate demands from the Paris accord, but you also have got a windfall from fossil fuel and you've been able to invest a huge amount in education, which is a huge priority in your state. How do you balance the desperate needs of your state, which is some of the poorest results an infrastructure in education? And money that you need and you're now getting it from fossil fuels right now. We are. No question about that. This is the state. That's always been right about balancing interests, making sure that we invest, although I inherited inherited pretty desperate situation where we didn't try to move the needle in any context, including supporting an all of the above energy agenda, which allows us to do responsible aggressive work to combat climate change. So we're we are now leading the nation in carbon-free. We said by twenty forty five our largest utility company says that they could beat that by five years. It's the most aggressive agenda in the country, plus renewable portfolio standards that only can be matched by three other states in the country. And we're making that transition, and we make that transition by making sure that oil and gas is clean as it can be that they reduced their carbon footprint. That we have real teeth and our oil and gas oversight efforts, and that we're doing methane mitigation which creates jobs in really focuses on making sure that we're reducing our greenhouse gases and greenhouse gas emissions. We are all working together. We are demonstrating that you can take very very desperate right and significantly challenging issues. Mary them in a productive way. That allows you to make a real difference in your state, and you're exactly right. We took four hundred and forty six Billy billion. I wish a million dollars into public education and early childhood education. Because this is the state that is ready to make the kinds of changes where other governors are coming here to see how to get things done. And I noticed that is some bipartisan governments about that leading the country. Yeah, I'm that's great, congratulations. But it's not a partisan thanksgiving. I know that they Republican governors also who are in this in this move as well, I just wanna play for you a sound bite by the international activists. Now, the sixteen year old girl, Greta Thanh, who's just been in London with these climate protests, and she addressed the parliament, and it's just just play the sound bite. And I want to ask you about public opinion. Now, thank you. Many of you don't want to listen to us. You say we are just chilling. We are under the peaching. The message of the United counting science number. Probably don't even have future anymore. Because the future was so a small number of people could make unimaginable amount of money. It was so infamous every time you said that the sky was limits, and that you live once did you hear me? It's my English. Okay. Because I'm beginning to wonder. She's so impressive. And I know kids in New Mexico of getting on this who I can just in the short time, we have left your reaction to that. Look, this is a young woman with incredible, courage, and charisma exactly the kind of positive messaging we can address climate change. And we don't do that by ignoring it. It is real every state every community every person irrespective of age must embrace the fact that the science is real, and we must pivot and the best response to a fossil fuel industry is to immediately pivot to renewable energies and just watch New Mexico become the clean, energy state and a state that gets the storage and the wind energy, right? And that unequivocally makes the kind of impact that anybody else anywhere on the planet

Subscribe now with apple podcasts with new episodes every Monday and Thursday, you'll never miss out on getting your forensic fix. Now, we turn to one of the rising democratic stars will help define the party's future. Michelle Luhan Grisham became the Democrats. First Latina governor in the nation when she took office this January in New Mexico and quickly made national headlines when she ordered all national guard troops mobilized by President Trump withdrawn from the border in her state. She said her state would not quote, take pod in the president's charade of border fear mongering around the same time. She released this ad for her policy agenda with her own take on what to do with those walls. I'm Lou hunker. Sean New Mexico's forty ninth and employment and fiftieth for schools. We got a bus through some walls to make changes. Create public and private partnerships to rebuild our infrastructure. Really more apprentices and skill drinking. And the billions in the permanent fund to invest in schools and small businesses. And here's what I think of Trump's wall. Well, governor Luhan Grisham that is one heck of an entrance. Thanks for joining us from Santa Fe. Let let me just ask you very clearly. Yeah. Let me just ask you used to be a congresswoman, you know, all this Muller report is is being poured over in congress and what to do next. What is your take? What should congress do particularly the Democrats in charge of the house right now? And how should they respond to President Trump saying that he doesn't want any officials going even if that called? I think that the Democrats in congress are absolutely on the right track by focusing on accountability. We'll give nothing else. Muller reports showed a presidency in total disarray with the most outrageous unethical behavior. These are not standards that can hold in a democracy, and the Democrats in congress have got to use their majority to make sure that they continue to get information that allows them to hold this presidency and this administration accountable. Lemme ask you them because you bring up the Democrats clearly we've went out seeing a field of some twenty two democratic declared candidates. We know that form of vice president Joe Biden is going to announce tomorrow just give us your impression of the candidates, the quite different policy focuses, and what do you think the people want? For from democratic candidate in twenty twenty. Well, I'm going to do the last part of your question. I I mean, we're going to see what people want from these candidates as we go through the primary process. But I think that we're seeing clearly that there is a robust set of efforts to show that we've got policy ideas, the right kind of credentials that integrity ethical behavior that problem solving while most of them have specific nuances that are different between their educational platforms. And they're making sure that we are fully engaged in a democracy by voting what we're gonna do same day. Registration like, we're doing New Mexico, those kinds of issues, they're all focusing on the economy, college, affordability, dealing with healthcare, and that I think is gonna play out productively because Americans want these issues addressed and they are not being addressed. In fact, they're being worsened. In every way by this president so bring up that Willis talk now because that brings up the immigration issue and the border issue because you are a border state, and you have been very critical of this wall idea and of all that's going on and the tragedy of two children in your state who died because of you know, all sorts of issues with detention and other. It's really a real live issue. You all in New Mexico, and you ordered the removal in the withdrawal of national God that had been sent from other states into your area. How big a problem is it for you. Well, I do wanna talk about the challenges at the border New Mexico, if you will has become a Ellis Island, and we want to take that issue seriously, and we're not going to shy away that it presents significant challenges. But here's the difference. I'm leading the state with great support from incredible new Mexicans who are rising to this challenge and responding to a call for action. Unlike the president who is fear mongering who's creating tensions at the border who will not negotiate who will not work with congress will not invest in the issues that would prevent the kind of mass migration that we're seeing today will not do anything about dealing with serious problems like human trafficking and drugs coming into the United States in any number of areas, including the post office. Instead he wants to build a. A wall. So he declared he tried to declare a national emergency and tried to use our resources in order to justify that political rhetoric. Instead, the national guard isn't needed because they can't do immigration enforcement that is an unlawful act. And so I was refusing to participate in that where I am absolutely on the ground. Unlike the federal government, I have homeland security on the ground doing communications setting up a law enforcement support to our state police who were also there because having an influx of people creates a public safety challenge. We have nonprofits and local leaders and mayors providing housing and transportation and got my department of health who's providing necessary of medical services. I mean, these are folks who were dehydrated, and I can tell you what we're not doing. We're not putting toddlers in cages, we are working to make sure that we are respond. Bonding to a very real very real humanitarian crisis that this president is participating in and helping to create by refusing to hire border patrol agents, having them adequately trained keeping ports of entry open and allowing asylum seekers to seek asylum correctly inappropriately and providing visas on the front end and investing in the problems in these countries who are facing horrific violence, I expect congress to continue to work on that to secure the border to invest in smart technology, and in the personnel that makes a difference there and my state will participate in cooperate fully with those evidence-based smart reasonable, national security security and border security issues. And I'm not gonna teach treat children and their mothers as a national security threat in my state. You also just mentioned green energy and clean energy. New Mexico is a fossil fuel rich state. And you're in the midst of a boom that an oil boom, but you also have Oude to take on the issue of climate change. This is one of the one of the videos that you had during your campaign. Let's just play it. You don't see a lot of candidates for governor out here. Much less willing to climb a twenty six story ladder, but Michelle is no usual candidate as governor. She'd required that New Mexico. Get fifty percent clean and renewable power. She'd sell energy to other states to create jobs here conceal invest in job training. An apprentice shifts to teach these skills to more workers New Mexico should be leading on clean energy Michelle's

"Will not see in this particular statement by the Washington Post, it is entirely false and offensive because first of all was not whispering anything to them. It was talking to them quite openly. And there's a role in the Princess of quite a few others, including a number former senior officials so it was. Wolman was very much an open book. The second thing is when your ask about what they want. I think it would be better to ask them. But you know, I was on your show in the past. I wrote for the New York Times for the Washington Post on many occasions, and that kind of sinkers at the people who are looking for him. Why expertise not only on Russia, but on foreign relations in general publisher and CEO of one of reading American foreign policy publications the initial interest, which by far as the greatest presidents of internet in terms of eight years, American or international publication. I don't think that it's appropriate to imply there was something unusual about the compaign being interested in talking to me. Okay. So let's just break it down. Then because there was clearly something enough inch. Interest that the mother investigation and the mother team talk to you and mentioned you quite so this just taking, you know, point-by-point then at one point in the report it says the u provided bullet points on Russia for Donald Trump to us is that accurate. Do not remember that particular portion of the report, but I did communicate with a campaign. Some of my colleagues people not associated to the centers, well, provided multiple impetus speech. It was agreed that she's fast speech on foreign policy would be delivered under the center almost Pacific law magazines, initial interest or specific, and they were interested in our input into speech in preparation of the speech together with maniacs organizations in Washington. So from this standpoint our involvement, my enrollment was spefically appropriate and normal for Washington syntax, and they don't seem to demolish reports imply Denison girls. About the speech at the Mayflower, which all of us covered because it was the first major Trump candidate foreign policy speech, and we all want to know what his priorities, and what is focused was going to be. We know now that Richard Burr, the former US ambassador to Germany, also, I believe a director at CNI, the think tank yours helped write the speech, and this is what he has said about it. And it's just play a little bit of a let's just play a little bit of what Trump said in the speech. I believe an easing of tensions and improved relations with Russia from a position of strength. Only is possible absolutely possible. Common sense as this cycle. This horrible cycle of stability must end. And ideally will end soon. Good for both countries. Now, obviously, I assume you agree with that. And that was clearly a part of the perspective here. But I just want to ask you a little bit about how this came about. Because again, it says in the report that you received subsequent draft outlines from Stephen Miller who is a prominent Donald Trump and remains upon prominent Donald Trump advisor, and that he and CNI executive director Paul Saunders along with Richard Burt spoke to Mila by phone about substance substantive changes to the speech, again, how appropriate is that. And why was that that degree if you will of kind of micro managing of this speech? Well, first of all, there was absolutely no micromanagement comes the speech to the extent that I did not when she is the final version of the speech. So I did not know what would be in the speech before it was delivered by by Mr. Trump, and I'm sure the disabled through with Mr. Saunders. That's what I thought. And I'm busted the bet when you ask appropriate. I will tell you. I think that, you know, Washington, and you do knows that Washington think-tanks are not only entitled but fully expected to help to the candidates and to assist them in developing programs in statements. It is a process with many participants. And it doesn't LSU MD is that if you helped in this process that means is that they went along with all your conditions, and that are responsible for speeches, which are not have seen before they were actually deliver. Just a very. Quick issue. He had me something tanks. Avowedly partisan others are not yours claims to be nonpartisan. So I guess what I want to know is why did you feel that you wanted to reach out and help this campaign? And was it like Russia felt you know to make sure that Hillary didn't win. And maybe there was be a different policy from the United States towards Russia. Well, say I you describe the beginning of Russian American will I was born in Russia. I am an American citizen since nineteen eighty and they think that by far the greater part of my life, and settling practical all my career took part in the United States. And you know, what I think when titled to an American who was born in Russia, and that's exactly how I feel and incidentally, when they feel and the Russian TV that's always how a position myself and Calway. Being user point number one point number two. If you're would look Damola reports, you would know that we help star inch a couple of dinners with a number of leading foreign policy experts. And there were chairs they were kind of presided by Senator session school late. Of course, became attorney general sessions for your understands in each of his Dina's where we provide our input to compaign fest. Everyone who attended his dinners with an exception of me who was a former here official or at least three or four star. General this dinner, civil included former director of national intelligence, second son of people who took part in the dinners at should or not Trump supporters at all they ended up being Cutie Clinton supporters. But we invited them to take part with a clear understand. Adding that we would not be called advisor to campaign is that people who take part in this DNS would not describe themselves as vice to complain. But we would be decades compaign, and which one final point eucheuma ask me, why wouldn't you do it for Hillary Clinton Wickham? Unlike chiller Clinton on a very senior level, unfortunately, she could not do it. But a month later, we had Tim Kaine who became of course, Hillary Clinton's running mate. No, just being speaking at the center being owner, the dissenter delivering the foreign policy speech and before that he spoke twice at the center. So we genu- new Andom partisan. Okay. You know, obviously, I've been reading things here to you that that that point out that the Senate did advise the campaign, and you also obviously arrange for instance, at that speech introduced Donald Trump to the to Sergei Kislyak the Russian ambassador. I mean, there are all these issues. You might call perfectly normal. But nonetheless, they've been raised in the course of this investigation. But I do actually to your points right now. Want to ask you them? Why you know, I assume having been Ocelot lot by the Trump campaign. You seem to have said to Jared Kushner that certain to close contacts would be quote, bad optics. Let me read you a paragraph from the Mahler report, the golden lot of attention Symes. That's you raise the issue of Russian contacts with Kushner advise that it was bad upticks for the campaign to develop hidden Russian contacts and told Kushner both the campaign should not highlight Russia as an issue and should handle any contacts with Russians with care. So you know, unpacked that for us because it seems to basically be your answer to some of the issues that people are asking you right now about the exceptionally close contacts with one campaign, which is the Trump campaign. Well, I I think that. The special counsel has described where a fairly my input to the Trump campaign in my suggestion that they should not have any secret contacts with the Russian government and more broadly is they should be extremely careful about any contacts with Russia during the campaign. I myself was not even a single time in Russia since Tramper became a candidate and till two thousand seventeen when radio was president. My view was that what Trump said about the personality of a better relationship with Russia from the position of strength is that it was appropriate. I did not think that he was always describing the reasons for this interest in a better relationship appropriately. When he talked about putting praising computing, calling Kim brilliant. I thought it was not what. The US interest was about the interest was about in having a relationship with another great nuclear power, which would allow the United States to have a normal dialogue and incidentally to extend the major substantive input. I suggested that Russia should be described more as an adversary that we should focus on continuation of American alliances boss Nate in Europe and US alliances in Asia. So while though I sold that what Trump for saying the mayor respects was refreshing and constructive, but I was simply did not agree entirely with his approach in particular with us rhetoric. I just very quickly. A given the way everything is unfolded over the last couple of years since Donald Trump has become president. Do you? Do you have any qualms or questions, and I'm not talking about Russia because we know that Russia into. Feed in the election. Do you have any qualms about that? You think it was the right strategy of the Russia's sought to help a President Trump in this in this election.

It's a really rare opportunity to talk to somebody who's actually named in that report with such knowledge of the Russia portfolio. Then the field of twenty twenty democratic presidential candidates is getting full an only expected to grow New Mexico's governor the democrat, Michelle Luhan Grisham joys to break down the current state of the party and the major issues facing her border state, and perhaps people across the country, and Harry has a fascinating and chilling conversation with Jamie mezzo about how DNA can be hacked for design a baby's enjoy the show. Welcome to the program, everyone, I'm Christiane Amanpour in London. President Trump says that he will fight congressional subpoenas to have his officials testify on the hill as House Democrats pledged to carry the mantel of special counsel, Robert Muller's investigation politicians, and lawyers and investigators are still picking over this report. And today, we have the rare opportunity to speak with a man whose interactions with Donald Trump's presidential campaign Jemma spot in that to volume tome Dimitri Simes immigrated to the United States from the Soviet Union in the nineteen seventies. And he would go on to run the center for the national interest.

Thank you very much. So look, I mean, it's really interesting to have you to talk to tonight because as I've said, everybody's still poring over this. And we all want to know all the details. So here we have you tell me from your perspective. Just give me an overview short of the investigation itself. Well, this was a very humorous investigation. Clearly, quite deliberate. A lot of people involved who is manufactured sauce CT. I think that from what I understand several conduct people. In Washington alone were interviewed several dozen oil were subpoenaed to appear before the grand jury Newseum. You know, anyone else from the center of the national interest was one of them as the investigation concluded conversation who is special counsel people. And they were very nice saying king me, and my colleagues for our effort and said that they were Saudis that we had to go through this right and the hoped that if we see each other again, it will be under more pleasant circle.
