He was asked this pointed question by Tennessee Congressman Jim Cooper at a recent hearing. Did you pay back? Several of your top executives. For contributing to Trump's campaign. My bonus ing or rewarding them. That's an outrageous claim, sir, and I resent it. I'm just asking a question. The answer is no.

"I'm Rachel Martin and I'm David Green. Congress is back from summer recess today, and there's one item at the top of their to do list another Corona virus relief package and let's bring in NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis. Good Morning, Sue. Hey, Good morning, David. So in terms of negotiating another bill here to help people through this pandemic, where do things stand on the hill? Will their negotiations will really start in earnest this week. Mitch Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he would like a bill done and sent to the president before Congress takes its next break on August 10th for the rest of the summer, and he'd like to keep it around the cost of about a trillion dollars. Congress has already approved about $3 trillion in relief measures so far. You know, Democrats want to go bigger and bolder on this issued House Democrats have already passed two months ago, a $3 trillion package that included a trillion dollars alone just in aid to states and local governments. The question we're looking for now is what exactly are Republicans in the Senate going to put forward? McConnell says he's going to unveil that proposal this week. It's expected on Tuesday. And he said his the packages going prioritizing his words, kids jobs and health care. One thing in particular we're looking for is McConnell says he wants more money for schools. We're dealing with the challenges of in person Learning. Republicans really want to get kids back in school physically back in school this fall, and he's also been more cautious about this all along. You know, Republicans were really hoping that at this point in the year the virus would be more contained in the economic picture would be a bit better. But as we know, the virus is surging in many states and unemployment's hovering in about 11% so Congress clearly has some work to do. Yeah, I think we're all hoping to be in a different place at this moment. So as you look at how this plays out. I mean, are there certain provisions or issues that you think Well, you know, might become sticking points. You know, One thing I think many Americans are watching for is to see what Congress does with expanded unemployment benefits back earlier in the year. They approved in one of their first packages. This additional $600 benefit that people got in addition to traditional unemployment, and that expires basically at the end of this week at the end of the month, And so the question is, are they going to extend that are going to zero it out? Are they going to consider other ways to get cash payments to Americans? Republicans have been reluctant to back that $600 again because they say it disincentivize is people from going back to work and Employers have a hard time getting their employees to come back if they're making more money, not working one other issue that we're watching his. McConnell has said that he will not allow anything to pass the Senate unless it has liability protections in it for health care workers and businesses essentially to prevent people from suing over things related to the pandemic, he says. This is a red line for him. And among for the White House President Trump is saying he may not sign a bill unless it includes a payroll tax cut, even though this isn't really something that anyone on Capitol Hill is advocating, for. It's going to be part of the debate, because if the president wants it and is going to sign it, you know they may have to find some resolution there, too. And, of course, the president fighting for reelection. I mean, we have a presidential election that is coming. Really soon. Is there any way to keep politics out of this whole thing? You know no, and especially because this is the kind of legislation that people are really paying attention to. This isn't just like Washington. Doing its thing is going to have a direct relation on millions of people's lives and President isn't you know the country doesn't think he's doing a very good job right now. It's affecting his race with the vice president. As his approval ratings are down, it's affecting down ballot races, the Senate where was which Republicans controls in play. Political winds right now are shifting towards Democrats in this exact moment. So it may give Democrats and leverage where you know Thiss Bill call for more spending and more benefits, But Republicans would really like a win to go campaign on in November. NPR's Susan Davis soo. Thanks so much. The pandemic recession is forcing some parts of the U. S to reimagine their economies. That's the case in Appalachia, where leaders are trying to move away from coal and said, thinking about building an economy around another natural resource. The great outdoors, West Virginia Public Broadcasting's Britney Patterson has more For more than 250 years, The mineral synonymous with West Virginia coal has been mined from the rugged mountains that surround this 88 mile long river. Aptly called the Coal River. It was once listed among the most at risk in the country, largely due to pollution from the coal industry. But today on a recent sunny weekend, Elizabeth Hill and her family are among dozens of visitors who strapped on life jackets and prepared to hit the water. Although they live just 30 minutes away. It was their first time visiting the coal river. As a family. We're really just searching for activities that we can do that keep us away from crowds. So that was our main purchasing coming out to try this. That's something Bill Curry says. He's.

"Hey, welcome. This is the bench parachute. That a lot to get to this hour a little bit later on. We'll be paying tribute to an parkland students the anniversary of parkland is one year ago today, we'll be having cashier who was one of the students at parkland. He'll be discussing what he learned from the experience what he learned from the aftermath so beginning to all of that. We'll also get to the Democrats take on climate change and the Amazon deal, but in breaking news, the president of the United States is preparing to sign a border Bill that is not very good. It'll be accompanied by a national emergency declaration. This was announced on the floor of the Senate by cocaine. Mitch Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell who in his own inimitably exciting way announced that a national emergency declaration was on its way. I've just had an opportunity to speak with President Trump. And he I would say to all my colleagues has indicated he's prepared to sign the Bill. He will also be issuing a national emergency declaration at the same time. And I've indicated to him that I'm going to prepare to support the national emergency declaration. This is almost the worst of all. The reason I say this saying it for weeks, I thought it was the most likely outcome, by the way is that the president would probably do this because he doesn't lose any political ground for declaring a national emergency. He can tell us everything he could to build the wall will likely be held up in court, and he gets to sign a funding Bill that does not shut down the government. Again. The funding Bill itself is deeply flawed. It's had a bunch of problems with it. Not only does the funding Bill undersupply funding for the border wall. But it also contains a section. Two to four a that suggests that not any of the funding provided by the new budget Bill will allow the secretary of homeland security to place in detention remove refer for a decision whether to initiate removal proceedings or initiate removal proceedings against a sponsor potential sponsor or member of a household of a sponsor or potential sponsor of unaccompanied alien child's what this means is that if a drug smuggler brings a kid over the border, and they've got somebody on the other side of the border who is an illegal immigrant themselves or is a far-flung illegal immigrant relative. The not only will that person not be able to be deported. Other people in the household will not be able to be deported. This is just one bad thing in the one thousand one hundred twenty nine page monstrosity that President Trump is said you sign into law. The Bill is really bad. It is there. There's not a lot there that that provides any sort of the resources that president from has for fit for two hundred miles of border fencing, he gets enough funding for supposedly fifty five miles of border wall. But he's accompanying that with asthma McConnell said a national emergency declaration now. As I've been saying for legitimately months now on the program a national emergency declaration on the southern border. A massive legal mistake for the president. It's a massive legal mistake for the very simple reason that if you declare a national emergency over a border situation that is not in fact, an emergency. It is a slow rolling problem. That has been a serious problem. No doubt slow rolling problem for literally decades in American life. And if you declare a national emergency on this basis to build infrastructure or or confiscate private property, which is what would have to happen in order to build more wall or more fencing, you're providing a precedent by which Democrats will then claim that the climate changing is national emergency. And that requires the new president or head of the executive branch to start centralizing assets. You start building infrastructure projects without the consent of congress. None of this is good stuff. There folks who are saying that President Trump's national emergency declaration is nothing new. There are lots of emergency declarations in place. There have been dozens of national emergency declarations over the past thirty nine years, but PRI dot org points out. There is a difference between Trump's potential declaration and most of the continuing states of emergency declared over the past thirty nine years. Trump's executive order would be focused on the theoretical national security situation on the US border as opposed to an actual response to a crisis. Most of the time a national emergency is declared in response to congress not being able to mobilize quickly enough. So you got to delegate additional authority to the president the president has to use statutory authority already in place in order to fulfil what he needs to do about national emergency. I'll give you some examples of national emergencies of the past. So for example, we have a national emergency that was declared November of two thousand eighteen which targeted elites in Nicaragua. And block property of certain persons engaged in the government with president Ortega's crackdown on a popular uprise. So we're blocking certain funding says financial transaction issue. We have done the same thing. With regard to declaring a national emergency on election interference. We've done the same thing with regard to blocking property of persons involved in serious human rights abuse that that one's about a year old usually when you declare national -mergency what you're really doing is blocking the property of people imposing some sort of sanctions that the president has the authority to impose, but the idea of building new infrastructure projects of seizing private property in order to build a wall under the auspices of a national emergency. That is highly dangerous stuff really dangerous stuff. Philip Klein has a piece over at Washington Examiner talking about this. He says those who seek to limit the size and scope of government wants it to be more difficult for the executive to arbitrarily use power that Trump is taking this action means that a Republican president will have been on board with using emergency powers to undertake a massive infrastructure projects without the consent of congress. What's more the Republican leader in the Senate along with no job, plenty of other? Publican's will signed onto this action along with no doubt, plenty of conservative Trump cheerleaders for the past week. We've been debating debating and feasibility of the green new deal, but many of its provisions suddenly become a lot more politically possible. If a president is allowed to seize emergency powers in such way from succeeds. It would not be difficult system of clients is correct for a Democrats to declare an emergency based on the national climate assessment. Then go about using the military for massive infrastructure projects in clean energy, for example, or presumably to shutdown funding for public private projects. The only hope for limited government conservatives is that any emergency declaration gets quickly enjoined and eventually nixed in federal court. But either way none of this is going to work out because it's going to be held up in court until probably twenty twenty by that point is unclear whether Trump gets reelected or not he certainly not going to have enough time to build the wall before the next election. So he will have declared a national emergency with Republican approval. Were telling on the courts to stop him here. But there's no guarantee that next time the courts will stop it. And they'll points Republicans support they'll say listen to everybody in the CONGRESS Republicans and Democrats is in favor of being able to expand national emergency powers this way. It's a really really dangerous precedent set. I know there are a lot of folks who are big fans of President Trump. I like a lot of what President Trump has done myself. But I am not in favor of the centralization of power in the executive branch to the extent that any time. The congress doesn't do what you want you simply declare that you're gonna use national emergency power. That's basically what the White House is arguing today press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that the White House is quote, very prepared for a legal challenge to the president declaring a national emergency. She said there shouldn't be a legal challenge because the president is doing his job, congress, should you? There's less the exact same logic. The President Obama us when he decided not to enforce immigration law. He said congress isn't doing what I want them to do. Therefore, I will simply invoke my powers as president of the United States that I've already said, I do not have the power to us. This does raise a question raises serious question. If President Trump always had the national emergency powers do this. Why did he wait until now why didn't he do this three months ago before the government shutdown either he's got the authority or he doesn't have the authority. And by the way, there is a much more solid arguments. At least that under ten US code two eighty four he could theoretically declare parts of the border drug corridors and then activate funding that way without declaring a national emergency. If he were to declare certain parts of the border drug corridors, then the secretary of defense would be authorized for maintenance and repair of equipment made available to any department or agency the maintenance repair or upgrading of equipment. So that could include upgrading border fencing, maybe even the extension of border fencing construction of roads, and fences and installation of lighting to blood drug drug smuggling corridors across international boundaries of the United States widened just invoked ten USC twenty four that's at least more legally arguable than simply using the national emergencies act, which if a recall legally was meant to limit the power of the president of the United States to declare a national emergency not to broaden. It. Trump is playing with fire here. He really is Sarah Huckabee Sanders has acknowledged that McConnell is telling the truth. She says President Trump will sign the government funding Bill, and as you stated before he will also take other executive action, including a national emergency to ensure we stopped the national security and humanitarian crisis Fido passage of the Bill is expected on Thursday night. When the house is to take it up. Sanders says the president is once again, delivering on his promise to build the wall. Protect the border and secure our great country. Trump has disregarded. Objections raised by Senate majority of the McConnell and other Republicans who bought it what they deemed presidential overage McConnell says that he is not going to do anything to oppose the national emergency declaration. He doesn't really have a lot of power to do. So other than the lawsuit which will undoubtedly be launched anyway. So. But again, if you are a small government conservative he got to be worried about the expansion of government power here. Get remember the green new deal. All it takes is Camila Harris is president or beta auroras, president to say we have a crisis on our hands. If we don't handle this thing within the next twelve years. It's it's going to be an emergency of epic planet wide catastrophic proportions. Therefore, I declared a national emergency, and we are building windmill farms on every private farm in the United States. We're building energy stations. Everywhere we are killing all of the farting cows. Again, the the sword can use both ways. People tend to think that the the power of the government should be. It's only a problem when it's used by the wrong people that is incorrect. The power of the government is like the ring and Lord of the rings whoever wheels. It is corrupted by it and granting that power to government in the first place is significantly dangerous..

Why don't you just invoked tenuous twenty four that's at least more legally arguable than simply using the national emergencies act, which if recall legally was meant to limit the power of the president of the United States to declare a national emergency not to broaden it from playing with fire here. He really is Sarah Huckabee Sanders has acknowledged that McConnell is telling the fruit. She says President Trump signed the government funding Bill, and as you stated before he will also take other executive action, including a national emergency to ensure we stopped the national security and humanitarian crisis Cleto passage on the Bill is expected on Thursday night. When the house is to take it up. Sanders says the president is once again, delivering on his promise to build the wall. Protect the border and secure our great country. Trump has disregarded. Objections raised by Senate majority of the McConnell and other Republicans who balked at what they deemed to presidential overage McConnell says that he is not going to do anything to oppose the national emergency declaration. He doesn't really have a lot of power to do. So other than the lawsuit which will undoubtedly be launched anyway. So. But again, if you are a small government conservative you've got to be worried about the expansion of government power here. Remember the green new deal? All it takes is commonly harasses president or beta auroras, president to say we have a crisis on our hands. If we don't handle this thing within the next twelve years. It's it's going to be an emergency of epic planet wide catastrophic proportions. Therefore, I declared a national emergency, and we are building windmill farms on every private farm in the United States. We're building energy stations. Everywhere we are killing all of the farting cows. Again, the sword can use both ways. People tend to think that the the power of the government should be. It's only a problem when it's used by the wrong people that is incorrect. The power of the government is like the ring and Lord of the rings, whoever wields it is corrupted by it and granting that power government in the first place is significantly dangerous..
