Sebastian Reminisces About His Time in the Oval Office With Donald Trump

"Me share a story here. I was in the oval office with president trump. Just the two of us which rarely happens. The oval office has Well it has an entrance way from the out of office and then it has a little narrow door that goes to private eating area and little place for the president. Just sit and read. Didn't be by himself. And then it has the door to the the west wing where guests come through so you rarely in there alone. I was in with the most powerful man in the world and it is a humbling feeling truly as an immigrant to the united states. Somebody who wasn't born here. Who has an accident who always will who only became a citizen. Three years prior to be alone in the oval office is something yukon express. And i was in there on other business if i remember. Well i think it was Iran deal I was one of the two people though building. In addition to the president wanted to kill the iran deal. God bless into finally doing in the face of people like hr mcmaster tillerson mnuchin. All the other fake america first. And i was about to leave still talking about something to do with iran and the president looked at is hand. He got this very serious expression. Yeah he's a very jovial person. It's to great great sense of humor. But suddenly his face froze who's reminded of something on that piece of paper or just something came to mind when he said i really don't want americans to die on the korean peninsula. I did not want to get us into another shooting war in korea. He understood the threat. Remember the hermit kingdom under kim launching ballistic missiles over the japan intimidating our friends in our allies but despite never having said he went to a military high school but despite never having served he really undestood the weight. The inordinate responsibility carried by the person who is commander-in-chief

"Madness It's it's absolutely absurd but it's a good way. It's so bad it's good but i think it also probably feels like even better because you're comparing it to promising a woman It's like wow that was like soul-sucking this was just like a high energy. Just absurd injection of fun existence. So yeah i i do think it's something that the movie on i. I love it even more editor. So many gags and it's just some of them go on for so long like there's the final sequenced goes on for like fifteen minutes or twenty minutes of like them potentially fighting or issue going to kill him and then they're just like talking they pause for water. It's just so absurd but it's awesome where she knocks him out and then wakes up and like she hits him with a tennis racket and then he wakes up and she's got the stress on and he's like you changed outfits costume change. She says he's been out cold for ages. I got bored this sort of like. It's it's almost like a za`z comedy kind of big knowledge. Is the madness. The me you madness the meeting. Yeah there's there's a costume change in this movie for every scene inside. Yes i don't know. I i want to say that this movie shouldn't exist at its. It's a monstrous blight. And it's kind of a shows us the waste of capitalism. But i suppose what would i rather that lewis lynton and steve mnuchin spend their money on because it's probably something is going to bring a lot more evil into the world this film certainly so on that its success. I guess. Congratulations on wasting fifty million dollars to licensed music for your fucking friedberg and seltzer. Fucking american psycho. I mean yeah if you consider the alternative is like. They could've spent all that money. That fifty million dollars to fund a super pac to like lobby like bombing yemen or something. Maybe not does make this feminist. I don't know like. But i think i think ultimately like christie nailed it where promising young woman is soul-sucking as the flip side of that is like soul fucking. It's totally different experience with put thank you..

"The joke is something else entirely like. She doesn't know we're laughing at but it's okay because she so committed to the bit and everything about her character is so fucking weird like i can't figure out what she's doing an accent or not at first. It bothered me but then i'm like no this. This is the character this is who she is. Rich people probably come up with their own accents all the time this is this is what they do in there fucking psycho meetings but yeah i just. I couldn't help but think that the whole thing is completely autobiographical like if you if you gave me an hour in a room with louise lynn. You you telling me she wouldn't try and murder me and eat me lewis. Lynn is scottish for what it's worth. So i dunno british like twenty percent of it and i don't know what kind of accent she was trying to do or if she was trying to bury her original one too. I think that. I think the ladder feel the scottish kind of like bleeding through this. Like attempt that american. I it was repressed scottish accent just trying to do generic which might be. She speaks every day. That's say well. Hey you know what you wanna talk about feminism. Nfl is there anything more feminist than not one but two fart jokes hammer from a woman's. But because i think we've done it folks. We've the patriarchy is crumbling under the power of louis linden's flatulent but cheeks dacian of patriarchy for really like. That's that's what this movie is just like. It's that fucking stupid but anyone who says they were not entertained by. This is an absolute stick in the mud and is lying to themselves. Okay so unshackle yourself from the chains of prestige cinema and embrace the louise lynn. Steve mnuchin girl boss fart movie. Okay this is the future. Maybe oversold at a bed shows and tell people that she feeds. There's also some feeding of people unlike for promising young woman. She's actually murdering people in this movie. And is starring in in cooking. Yeah just discriminate about who she kills either. So it's just if you're route to her basically you're done for i love it when she's listing. When they're going back this one this one would do with this windy yeah just keeps going on in pedophile republican democrat independent and when she says republican ed's They do like you have to have a little knowing pause like wrong also much like promising young woman this. This movie is extremely online but again in a weird fucked up way that makes it just funny and stupid and somehow endearing sometimes in promising young woman. They're like okay. What's every internet stereotype of a shitty guy that we've all heard ten thousand times before inserting into movie and here louise lind was just steve honey on instagram. What everybody like on instagram. I need i need everyone. Is everyone's a bisexual person who talks about their mental instability. Okay that's my character. That's that's she just like that. Those are two characteristics. I am bisexual. And i am a rich psycho. And that's it that's all she does here so great job. Thanks louise so i. I guess if if promising young woman is twitter's girl bus movie than me. You madness parlors right. That's that's the answer is it. This is it yeah. This is the parlour girl vase. This is tommy laurentien. Bloodlust the movie. Also you know what lewis linton can dance. I've never met a republican. That can dance so we'd have to work through that but fuck i don't know man. This is just it's it's something okay again you you might not love this but do not dismiss it because there's a lot more going on underneath the hood than with promising young woman so i dunno chris. We're we're not crazy are we are. We haven't been overcome by the.

"For actual deep message about the modern society and its vapid nature. I don't even know if it has a message. Because i think it's just fucking clear that up for you. How is this. Not about steve. Mnuchin and louise linden's actual lives. You can't tell me they don't shop up bodies and just keep them in their giant weird mansion with white furniture. Now i'm trying to look online. Did mnuchin actually like have anything to do with this movie. No he wasn't listed as a producer at all. he's not a producer. But i'm sure he had some sort of guiding hand here he had i. Yeah i mean he probably put some money behind it. But he's not listed as a producer which is a bit of the towel when a guy who has made his mark in hollywood by being film producer and his wife is doing this vanity project. He's like have fun honey. I'm going to be over here playing attention to what you're doing young so i. I wish there's more mnuchin in here. Because maybe he could add some creative input with his like satanic lizard brain that would have added even more holy shit and also promising young woman again like people in the positive uses people the composition at the beautiful colors path to you. Want to fuck look at this thing man. It's a neon nightmare rate. All they did was. They rented the stupidest mansion in malibu that they could possibly find and then it's either in that mansion or then like or they switched to some weird sound stage that's just blasted to shit with neon lights like a rap video. It's incredible ernest mentioned. It looks like a fucking science lab satellite property for some kind of apple or tech company. That's that works in the hills or something. It's it's something for sure. It's just garish. The whole thing is garish abrasive. But it's it's doing something you might say like. This doesn't i assume they spent i. It's hard to say because it doesn't look good. I mean it doesn't have a lot of like now coroner's cuts and it's very amateurishly edited and But at best. Yeah obviously there is money behind it because they seemingly licensed approximately seven hundred popular songs for the film so i i can't imagine how much it would cost. Oh yeah if you thought that was the whole budget promising. Young woman had a pop soundtrack..

I need neoliberal girl boss. Feminism in the year of our lord 2021. Wherever do i get it from and to you. I say you need to embrace me. You madness film written directed and starring louis linton. And if you don't know who that is. It's steve mnuchin. And if you don't know who he is google him he's a ghoulish man a gazillion air from the trump cabinet and film producer and a disgusting slug of a human being and all the salt in the world. Can't make him dissolve. So wouldn't you believe that lewis linton. I think what she did here and chrissy. Tell me if i'm on the wrong path because i'm pretty sure this is what this movie is. She saw american psycho and thought. Damn that's cool. Took every like wrong. Possible interpretation and message from that and due to gender flip girl power version and it is fucking whole larry. You wanna talk about like tone-deaf okay. This is where death goes so far around up. Its own ass. That becomes a transcendent form of art. The likes of which you have never seen kristie. Why is this the best movie ever made. Oh wow no. I think that you accurately described that Maybe not best movie made but it is just. It was definitely took me. It took me back. I did not expect this movie to be what it was the best way to say but in a good way it was a lot of fun and it was just completely bonkers but i think she absolutely washed american psycho. It was like i'm gonna. I'm just gonna take that up one hundred notches up and just have a blast with which which it was a lotta fun not like the last movie we just. It's weird too because these these two movies. They make a very similar mistakes throughout their run times. But the difference here with me you man this is it just takes it to such an extreme degree that it just fucking works for me and it just. You can't look away from this movie at all.

Stablecoins in the Hot Seat: Powell Calls Bitcoin a Substitute for Gold

"There was an absolute flurry of content and commentary yesterday around the place of bitcoin. Stable coins defy and the digital asset industry as a whole vis-a-vis. Us government regulation as well as how a digital dollar might shake that all up before we get into it. Let's at the terms of the debate. One of the competitors for this cycles top fudd is the government will ban it if it gets sufficiently threatening now to be clear banning depending on your sister could mean anything from an outright ban of use in holding too forceful seizure too limiting access to on and off ramps to the more benign from a commercial standpoint but no less threatening from a privacy standpoint integration of the full crypto infrastructure into the am l. kyc. Money surveillance apparatus. I've spent some time on this show looking into global versions where this fudd seems to be playing out in particular. We've been watching the evolving situation in india and nigeria india which seems gearing up for a bill that would have some sort of outright ban although at least one finance minister says that that's not the case and nigeria. Where the central bank of nigeria. I reiterated that banks should not be working with crypto users which they've then subsequently rolled back just a little bit either way however really what everyone has been focused on is the us particularly in the context of a new administration. The last administration had friends and foes alike when it came to bitcoin and crypto trump. Famously tweeted that he did not like bitcoin or crypto. But we didn't really take that seriously as a threat because it was so clearly about zuckerberg and libra mnuchin was a much bigger enemy. Probably wrote that text for trump's tweet even and clearly wanted to tighten the reins in his final act. He was trying to require exchanges to collect more information. When users transferred crypto to their own wallets on the flip side however there was brian brooks who was absolutely revolutionary at the office of the comptroller of the currency. The changes he oversaw are a huge reason. Why so many big institutions are now playing in this space. Why so many big traditional banks feel like they have to race to catch up to allow people to offer their customers crypto services however as we know from physics every action has a reaction and to some extent one reason why observers are so keenly watching the biden administration is to see how much they're going to respond or try to walk back with brooks in the occ changed on top of that. As the biden administration has come to power the price and volume around bitcoin stable coins and the rest of the digital asset industries have made them much more on ignore -able last time joe biden was in office. Bitcoin is about four hundred and thirty bucks. Now it's been over fifty thousand dollars for sixteen days in a row tether was barely out of diapers now. It has a market supply above forty billion in his doing upwards of one hundred billion dollars in volume per day combined with us dc. And you've got over. Fifty billion dollars of usd approximates there so lot more is at stake with that. People have been watching. Two things has come in and what they're saying on the who has come inside. Janet yellen is back for another round although this time is treasury secretary rather than as he chair gary genzer to is back. Although this time is as he c- chair. Instead of cftc chair of these two there is much more optimism around gessler who has done a pretty fair bit of work to understand where the crypto industry is coming from even teaching a course at mit about bitcoin and blockchain. And of course we have someone who still around in the form. Of jay powell. The federal reserve chairman. His ex factor. And all these discussions is the potential of a central bank digital currency a digital dollar. That could potentially shift the us's relationship with these projects now in terms of what we've seen these actors say so far over the last few months up until now it's been pretty standard fare one part. There's a lot of exciting potential here. One part we have to protect investors though and one part but it's also used by criminals over the last couple of days however we've gotten both comments and news that could shift as into our next phase of understanding what the us is relationship with. Bitcoin stable coins and other digital assets is going to look going forward. So let's talk about powell speaking about cdc's and cryptos at a bank for international settlements panel yesterday. Let's talk about the announcement of digital dollar prototypes coming this summer. And let's talk about new draft fat. If guidelines around cryptocurrencies. I up powell. Did a session yesterday with leaders from the bank for international settlements including augustine carstens. We talked about last week. He was asked about crypto currencies. And whether he saw them as a threat. And here's what he said. We call them crypto assets. You know. they're they're highly volatile. See bitcoin and therefore not real useful as a store of value in there not backed by anything. They're more of an asset for speculation. So they're also not particularly in use as a means of payment. It's more speculative asset. That's it's essentially a substitute for gold rather than for the dollar. And i think with crypto acids the the the public needs to understand the risks. The principle thing is there's the volatility there's also the outsized energy requirements requirement for for mining. And the fact that they're not backed by anything so let's break out these three reasons that he wasn't particularly impressed by cryptos. I this idea of volatility or that. It's just an asset for speculation. Basically he's dismissing bitcoin and any other crypto as something that he does not have to stress about or really factor into his consideration around global monetary competition while many. Bitcoin is grabbed onto the essentially a substitute for gold piece as a great tweet and knocked to the gold bugs. Who they're trying to convert or at least undermined powell was saying this more. Like a giant shooing away. A fly gold is to him clearly. Irrelevant an unimportant antiquated part of the fiat system that he sits at the helm of in that way a substitute for that thing does not present a threat

Dan nathan but how about the debt. That was the big question. That was a big push back. I mean they didn't care about the debt in the last few years. I don't know why they would care now. I think if Mnuchin was still the treasury secretary yellen predecessor. I think he was on board for something that looked like two trillion for a lot of the same reasons. So i think you make the point now with interest rates here with interest rates net. Really going up anytime soon. And largely because of the fact they've tacked on four or five trillion dollars in debt in just the last few years. This is the time to do it. I agree go big

NYSE Says Again It Will Delist Three Chinese Telecom Stocks

"The trump administration is in its final days. But that doesn't mean that they're not still pressing ahead with their aggressive china policy when it comes to tech president trump has signed an executive order banning transactions with aunt groups ali pay tencent's wechat pay and q. Q. as well as five other chinese payment apps quoting reuters lee order argues that the united states must take aggressive action against developers of china software applications to protect national security it tasks the commerce department with defining which transactions will be banned under the directive within forty five days and targets tencent holdings q. q. And we chat pay as well quote by accessing personal electronic devices such smartphones tablets and computers chinese connected software applications can access and capture vast swaths of information from users including sensitive personally identifiable information and private information. The executive order states such data collection quote would permit china to track the locations of federal employees and contractors and build dossiers of personal information the document ads and quote so as i've said several times when it relates to the subject i still haven't developed a definitive opinion about this whole tech cold war with china. Smart people. I know really do believe that. China's tech ambitions are set to the us's dominance in various ways and so must be meaningfully countered the problem. I'm having though is at least these last few years. The trump administration in my opinion hasn't put together a coherent argument about what they're doing. Or why so. It's hard for me to even form an opinion. That's not me being political. That's just me being someone in the tech industry that feels this whole posture. Vis-a-vis china by the government has been maddeningly inconsistent. So far case in point after pressure from the us government. The new york stock exchange said it would delist the stocks of three chinese companies china mobile china telecom and china unicom in order to satisfy an executive order imposing restrictions to prevent american companies and individuals from investing in companies identified as being affiliated with the chinese military. Now that was always the plan they were going to list these three companies and then two days ago the nyse reverse course and said it would no longer dealers those companies now today. they're reversing the reverse quoting cnbc. The exchange reversed that decision on monday causing much confusion treasury secretary mnuchin told the exchange that he disagreed with the original reversal. A senior administration official told. Cnbc's eamon jabar's the mis's said the latest reversal was due to new guidance. From treasury's office of foreign assets control that said people in the us could not engage in certain transactions with the three companies as of next monday trading of the three securities will be suspended at four pm eastern time on monday the exchange said and quote. See what. I mean confusing as all get out isn't it. China mobile is a one hundred billion dollar company. I believe they've been listed on the nyse for more than a decade. As i said before around these issues capitalism requires a clear set of rules that everyone involved in the great game of capitalism can understand if you don't know what the parameters of engaging and capitalism are then that's not capitalism so i guess one of the bigger questions going into the new year does president biden have as big an ax to grind with china tech as president trump. Did and will we get a more coherent position. Vis-a-vis chinese tech

"Zor. Res- asks what do you think about. Privacy designed blockchain so. It's kind of interesting because these blockchain's are sort of under attack. I guess you could say from regulation right now. A melted mirrors actually talked about this in the episode that he did with her and lynn alton Where she said that. That's kind of the main thing she'll be looking out for twenty twenty one and i think You know we at this moment that i'm recording this. We only have rumors about what type of regulation it was that Treasury secretary steve mnuchin wanted to put on crypto right. Now because i think actually you privacy coins were in the crosshairs and this was something night. Jessie liu who came on unconfirmed talked about She was the what was it. Former attorney for dc. She's prosecuted a ton of cases are around some of the biggest ones involving illegal. Use bitcoin and via actor state actors like north korea or by the child porn website in in korea. Welcome to video. And and some of the other big criminals like terrorists and stuff and weight point. Is she highlighted by a something that she was noticing in. I can't remember it was the dot enforcement framework actually and I do think you know this is going to be something that comes up again because brian brooks the action control of the currency. Also kind of you know. When i asked him about what how he thought the. Us might regulate privacy. He said oh well you know the. Us is different from other countries because we're We're the victims of terrorism or or were subject to terrorism or something like that and he said that he thought people would be willing to make a trade off for that. Which i thought was very interesting. A really was curious to know what the crypt communities reaction was to that comment. But yeah so. I think we're going to see that kind of come up as a battle and i actually. I would be surprised. If in the end there wasn't some way to have Blockchain side feature privacy prominently because in a way. I can't imagine the technology really taking off in all the ways that it could take off if there wasn't such a feature and you even see that like in a forthcoming episode. I have unconfirmed. It's a panel discussion but there is somebody from the federal reserve who talks about building systems for central bank digital currencies. Who says you know flat out like you can't design these systems unless you have privacy you as a consideration from the beginning he said it cannot be an afterthought and and he's talking about for central bank digital currency so. I really do think that you'd at least some of these vaccines will have to feature it prominently and i. I don't think that we're going to end up with blockchain set it at all. I would be surprised on a long enough time scale. I do think in the in the beginning. There might be a bit of a battle. But i think after we got real adoption then i would be very surprised if we don't start to see more privacy

Cheques, imbalances: Americas fraught stimulus

"America's house of representatives passed another version of stimulus bill yesterday. This one promising. Two thousand dollar checks to the majority of americans use would make a difference in the lives of americans who are facing the greatest uncertainty that they've experienced for many of them in their lifetime. It's unclear if the measure will pass in the senate making it yet another twist in a last minute. Saga to provide economic assistance to millions of struggling american workers and businesses the original two point three trillion dollar spending package included nine hundred billion dollars for pandemic relief in addition to funding the federal government for the next year. They was hastily negotiated in the run-up to christmas by a bipartisan group including president. Trump's treasury secretary steve mnuchin but after it was passed by the house and the senate. Mr trump criticized the bill saying it didn't do enough to help. Ordinary americans in really is a disgrace for example among the more than five thousand pages in this bill in the end. He didn't make good on his threat to veto the legislation on sunday but he demanded another congressional vote on increasing the value of the stimulus checks. A measure supported by many more democrats than republicans. I worry that this wapping four. Hundred and sixty. Three billion dollars won't do what's needed stimulate the economy or get the jobless back to work. Whatever the outcome the relief couldn't be more needed. Government has been deadlocked on the matter for months and in just over three weeks. It'll be president. Joe biden who inherited the budget. The stimulus plans and the problems brought about by all the footdragging. Congress rarely compromises these days injuries. Cologne is the economists. Washington correspondent and it was truly a compromise measure. That will do some good I think for the american people. So what's in the bill actually been passed by both houses and signed by president trump. the new sumo's spill that president trump signed into law includes a couple of important provision. One of which is another round of direct checks civil. Go to americans. These are going to be half as big as the ones that were passed in march so these will be six hundred dollars per person as opposed to twelve hundred and there's also going to be a new federal top in unemployment benefits. Most americans have beginning six hundred dollars a week until those benefits expired back in august. The new benefits are going to last for eleven weeks and they will be about three hundred dollars per week. And there's a few other things it's very long. Bill is fifty six hundred pages. Almost that was negotiated very much at the last minute. Among the more important parts are another three hundred billion or so which are going to be allocated for the payment protection program which subsidizes businesses to make sure that they don't have fire people and why the president trump had Such a hard time signing why the delay. That's an interesting question. Depends on how generous he wanted to the president. Many people pointed out the seeming lack of logic about refusing to sign a bill that had been negotiated with his administration. Nancy pelosi of negotiating with steve mnuchin. The treasury secretary about the contours of the bill and this compromise was was forged with mitch. Mcconnell the republican leader in the senate there had been little indication before the bill was actually passed that donald trump had match of objection to it wants. It came to his desk. He thought of the bill was pathetic and that it needed to have much more generous person check but ultimately donald trump decided not to hold up the bill and and this is a relief package that americans have really been waiting some time for. Yeah absolutely the initial cares. Act was a huge injection of stimulus. But it was passed all the way back in march and a lot of the major provisions of the cares act expired back in august and interestingly because that was more than two trillion dollar bill what you saw in the first month of the pandemic was actually pretty solid progress against already in america. You saw a twenty five percent reduction from its pre pandemic levels and what you've seen since the expiration of those benefits is a very fast resurgent so all of those gains in poverty reduction have been Erase this point and if you look at other indicators of hardship whether it's the sheriff families who say that they can't afford food thirteen percent of american families right now are saying that they have not had enough to eat in the last week from the latest census bureau. Polls you see thirty percent of americans who are renting say that they have little to no confidence that they will be able to pay next month's rent and those measures that we've been tracking have gone up significantly in the past couple of months and put this into some context. How does this This relief package on the whole compare with with similar ones offered by other countries britain germany. And so on so at this point america. We'll have done over three trillion dollars of direct stimulus. And if you compare. America to other countries on the basis of how much money does it immediately inject into the economy. America looks fairly outstanding. Where america doesn't look as generous on the stimulus front is on its guarantee. Liabilities made with businesses so european countries are much more likely to guarantee loans use the central bank much more than america has used the fed as part of their strategy for addressing similar. So depending on whether or not you think. Direct relief to americans is more important You could say that america's really well if you think that subsidising businesses and making sure that they stay open is the vital point of covid relief that you could say that the europeans have done better but another facet of this was that the bill apparently contains what president trump called the pork but a lot of provisions that aren't sort of directly related in that way it does and that's in part because it was attached to the bill that keeps the government open in funded for the next year and that obviously has a lot of unrelated provisions because it is the bill that funds entire federal government. You know there are measures on a teddy roosevelt presidential library. Independent commission to oversee horse racing. Racine those kinds of things have been snuck in but also some provisions that might not have been obviously related to covid but that are probably good like an end to the practice of surprise billing which is basically where you go to a hospital. That's in your insurance network. You're treated by dr who is affiliated with a different network and you get a very large bill and all this is happening of course in the in the twilight of mr trump's presidency. Where does this leave. Joe biden as as he starts to come in this really sets the initial conditions for joe biden's presidency a lot of the unemployment benefits for example will expire in mid march which will mean that there will be some period of renegotiation. We saw chuck schumer. Who is the democratic leader in the senate say that the bill will only partially cover some of the depths that americans are in right now economically. Unfortunately the troubles are so deep. The abysses so long that we need more and this is just a first step. This is an emergency. We need a second bill to continue. So that's going to set up a new challenge for them in the opening days of the administration when biden would probably rather try and pursue a big legislative victory like infrastructure. Or something else. A lot of it is gonna turn on what happens in the upcoming senate races in georgia. The runoffs will decide the last two seasons senate and that will determine whether or not democrats or republicans control it if republicans keep those seats and democrats. Don't have control of the senate. I think it's probably quite likely that this is the last big stimulus measure that americans are gonna see addressed. Thank you very much for your time. Thanks so much for having

Why Trump waited until after relief bill was passed to push for $2,000 checks

"Next week on Monday, shall force lawmakers to take a recorded vote on $2000 stimulus checks for Americans. This comes after President Trump demanded such checks in a recorded Twitter video. And we've just learned the massive government funding and coronavirus relief package is being sent to Florida tonight where President Trump is mulling whether decided into law, a person familiar with the matter tells the hill. The measure will be sent tomorrow. Lago, where President Trump is spending the holidays. White House officials have declined to comment on whether he plans to sign it or veto it. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland is slamming the president, accusing him of backtracking on the understanding that he would sign the legislation to fund the government for the next year. Providing Americans with $600 stimulus checks and sending out other coronavirus hate. We sent the bill to the president to President Trump to sign and on Lee then After we agreed on I figure we thought was too low for direct payments to families and Children, $600. But the Republicans would not take a higher figure on Lee then did the president. United States indicate that 600 was not enough. What was President Trump's motivation for throwing this monkey wrench? We asked Paul blessed of Vice News, who says it may be a recent report giving Joe Biden partial credit for pushing through the coronavirus Hate Deal. National Democrats and Joe Biden. You know, there was a story in The New York Times that credit to Joe Biden for helping to get Democrats over the finish line. I don't know if you recall, but they had For much bigger stimulus packages the House and passed the $3.4 Trillion bill and then the $2.2 trillion bill earlier in the year, so they were not very happy with it until I think that Joe Biden stepped in and was definitely encourage them to help take the deal. So there was reported in the Washington Post, Trump had his aides in the White House and tried to talk him down from demanding the $2000 checks. No. Before the election, he had called for bigger checks. That was sort of one of the things he wanted to run on. He signed the checks that came out earlier this year. You know, people got letters saying, you know, Donald Trump essentially gave you the check. You know, this is always something he had demanded. But, yeah, the White House had been, you know, super involved in the negotiations this time around after the toss between Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called part. This is a bill that was crafted by a bunch of centrists in the Republican and Democratic party in the Senate. He just kind of stepped in last minute and demanded this big increase in the Czech money.

Trump threatens to not sign COVID-19 bill, wants bigger stimulus cheques

"Speaking of holiday cheer. After seven months of roiling congressional negotiations congress passed a landmark relief deal. Everybody got on the same page. The seem to be a problem that was solved and then last night. President trump sent a tweet. The bill they are now planning to send back to. My desk is much different than anticipated. It really is a disgrace so aiysha. This was not an explicit veto threat. But it kind of was and the president made this after the bill had already been passed. What exactly does he want here. Yes so the president is asking for explicitly asking for a bigger payments Stimulus payments for individuals two thousand dollars for individuals. Four thousand dollars for couples He also said he wanted The tax break that was brought back in this Bill to last for longer than what is in the bill. Right now This tax break is known as the three martini. Lunch tax break by critics of who say that it benefits you know executives more than it will benefit struggling restaurants but those are some of the things he also raise these concerns about other things being in the bill not seemingly acknowledging that this isn't just a covert relief package but this is a a spending bill. It's the the relief package is coupled with the spending bill that funds the entire government. Right right. I mean these. These are programs that the president asked for his own budget months ago and programs that he has signed previous annual spending bills mean things like money for the military more money for the military money for military. Pay raises an endeared. Your we talked about this a lot but it's worth just emphasizing one. More time as the president comes out and tries to blow this up. After the bill had passed after congress has left town he was absolutely totally disengaged from these negotiations for the last few months right. I mean really. That's been the president's mo during his entire first term. I mean he. He has not really engaged that much with congress. He left the negotiations on this cove. Relief bill as he had in previous covid relief packages to his treasury secretary steven mnuchin and republicans on the hill were given the assurances that the administration was signed onto this package. And and it's it's really worth pointing out that. The the party that the president is undercutting the most here is republicans because he comes out and says i want two thousand dollar relief checks for every american republicans had negotiated this down to six hundred dollars and it was interesting. You saw a house speaker. Nancy pelosi say right right after. This video came out great. Yeah let's do two thousand dollar relief checks. I'm all for it yes. A president trump is sort of acting a bit like a grinch for republicans right. He's still in there Christmas a deal at this point. It seems like he's very angry with republicans in general and not just about this issue but really about the overall him feeling like they're not backing in his reelection bid. Right now backing. You mean saying that we're going to overturn the results of an election that oven election. Yes of an election that that happened. It seems like he's angry at them so now he's calling out you know different. Republicans whether it's senator john thune. Who's a top republican in the senate You know calling out mitch mcconnell so i it seems like this was president trump. We don't know whether he will actually veto or not but saying look i'm still the president i can still. You know demand attention and i can gum up. The works abet teardrop. Do you have any sense how this could play out going forward. I mean given that now you have democrats running in the special election in georgia. You have the house speaker saying yet. We've been pushing for bigger payments. Let's do two thousand dollars like what. What are the options going forward. And and what are the deadlines that we need to think about. I mean i think what we're looking at is a couple of deadlines one is tomorrow. The house will come in and has what. It's called a pro forma session which is really just usually like housekeeping day over the holidays. But what they're going to do tomorrow is try to pass a bill calling the president's plan and say we would like consent to increase the stimulus check payments to two thousand dollars like the president said we would expect the a house republican to object

"Russia's week in review. I wanted to be here today folks, just gotta mix minus problem. The can you hear that in their in the problem? We are in the process here of over whatever we're going to do here. Explain this snafu to you, which we're having temporarily work around. I was gonna stay. I'm not gonna let any government shutdown keep me out of here. And I'm not going to let the network make closed if I want to be here. And I definitely wanted to be here with everything going folks, I safe to say in thirty years of doing this program. There has never been a month of December like this. There has never been a Christmas season like this. And there has never been a Christmas Eve like this with this much important news going on. And I was reading all weekend that I was going to miss today because the arrangements you already made and what we have started to do here. We're going to remodel and upgrade some of our tech equipment here. Both in the studio and control room on the other side of the glass, and they started working on. Over the weekend. And I come along and say, look, and they asked me what are the odds are going to be here on Monday before we start ripping things apart. Not very good. Can't imagine it. But then yesterday, I said, you know, what I gotta come in. So they had to stop what they were doing and try to put it all back together. Again, just to get ready for me here today, it's going to be at least a week or maybe a two week project to do the tech upgrade to some furniture stuff involved too. So there was a little snafu here at the beginning. I was hearing what I was saying a split second later, it's like an echo, and it's it's gone away. But have I lost talk back here? Everything's fine. Everything's fine. So you guys screwed up at first, and we didn't know of right? It was always New York that screwed up. All okay. New York screwed up because we don't know who New York yesterday. So. Well, yes, Slough it off on New York, anyways, all up and running. Now, here's the phone number. We're gonna hope to chat with you on the phone today. Eight hundred. Two eight two two eight eight two in the Email address, elrushbo eibnet dot US. This shutdown is obviously a top priority subject. I just need to reiterate some things about it. We're hearing that it's not going to be resolved until the new year. Democrats have no incentive really to solve this until they take control the house of representatives on I think January third, but I I want the president to hold firm on this. This shutdown is one that the Democrats on this is this would be very easy to resolve. And they don't wanna do it. They don't wanna do it. Because I'll tell you. If you look at the media to the Washington Post today CNN, I folks they have Trump gone in three months. They think this is going to lead me to the next subject. We're going to dissect here today. They believe in three months. They will have fractured. Trump's base. I e you they think they will have split Trump's base. And I'll tell you why they think that they think that Trump has made an incorrect terrible error by firing Mattis and pulling his out of Syria. The Trump base is made up of two distinct types of voters the so called populists and standard ordinary everyday conservatives and the populace don't mind getting out of Syria and the populace don't mind the secretary of defense give the populace don't mind having power taken away from bunch of political generals, like Madison McMaster, and so forth. But there's another part of the Trump coalition, which is conservatives who believe in an active foreign policy, and you know, I'm sure you've talked to a lot of people don't like the fact reporting out of Syria that we're abandoning the Kurds were abandoning allies. This is not good. The drive bys and the official Washington permanent residents. Believe this move by Trump has the potential to split his base. Remember when I said that Trump cannot be destroyed by the media because they didn't make him. And this is by the way, this is true. The media makes you they can destroy you. If they don't make you they can try to destroy you. But they can't if you become a success. And all the media does is reported and acknowledged it has no role in it. Then they can't harm you. Well, they can't they can't destroy you. But if your success is knowing fully to media buzz and hype like if you do a radio show, but it's not number one. But they treat you like it's number one and everybody thinks you're number one. But you're nowhere near number one. If they turn on you. Then the fact that you really number ten is going to be revealed and your finished. Well, I've always said that the media really can't destroy Trump only he can. And there are some who think that he's now done that with this immediate withdrawal from Syria. I'm sure, you know, people that voted for Trump that don't like this at all. And I'm sure, you know, people that voted for Trump who don't have a problem with getting out of Syria and withdrawing half the troops out of Afghanistan. I'm sure, you know, some people think oh my God. Firing Mattis big mistake. And I'm sure, you know, some Trump voters, you don't think it's any big deal. So that subject I will explore and explain to your heart's content. The other one is the fed the stock market and Mnuchin. This one has a whole different group of people concerned when Mnuchin started calling the banks you heard about this Mnuchin Steven Mnuchin is Treasury Secretary and out of the blue he announced that he'd been calling six CEO's or let me better say it CEO's of six of the largest banks in the country. And his point was to ask them. What their liquidity was not these economics people speak in their own language, and it's designed to keep outsiders. I'm not understanding what they're talking about. When Mnuchin the credit sky is not falling phone calls is made and reported. And when Mnuchin is checking the CEO's. About their liquidity. And assuring them. There's liquidity what he's talking about is credit. Do people have enough money to lend because nobody can do anything sizable without borrowing money. So Mnuchin wanted to call these banks get a check on their liquidity and assure them that there was liquidity at the fed that borrowing and credit would still be up and running nothing's gone south in that regard. But it's being treated as though an owner of a sports team giving him a coach or manager a vote of confidence relatively certainly is going to be fired not long after. So people thinking why would Mnuchin do this Mnuchin did once everybody think the sky isn't falling? So he's phone. Call indicates that it is. This is created a sense of panic in the market that accompanies. The fact the stock market is down four thousand points since early October now below twenty two thousand. And it involves the fed and the usage of interest rates. This is another by the way. This is another issue kind of light Syria and Mattis, there are Trump voters who actually think it's okay for the fed to raise rates. Because it's stability that they care about their other Trump voters who think that it's sabotaging Trump to raise rates because it stalls. What is a growing economy, which will automatically hurt. Trump. The one thing that runs true in all of this is that the effort to destroy President Trump is in full swing. It's being waged on many different fronts. It has eventuated. Now that many in the drive by media think it is a foregone conclusion. It's just a matter of time now. And as I mentioned, the Washington Post gives Trump three months, and by three months, they mean, three months until this coalition is fractured to the point that the Senate might have sixty seven votes to impeach. If the Senate the House Democrats actually bringing up impeachment charges now, don't misunderstand. I don't get it. This is true. I just think this is their mindset this has been their objective for two years, and has all they see is destruction all around the stock market foreign policy. They think Trump is goofing up left, and right, and they're happy for it to be screwing up. They're happy for this to happen. As long as they can it on Trump like anything else, the Democrats will destroy whatever or weak in whatever as long as it empowers them to so-called fix it later. And there are even some. Really out of control leftists who would willingly take a financial hit. If it meant getting rid of Trump. I don't think we're we're near that. But I'm just telling you, that's what they think. That's why they're in such good morning. When you watch the drive by media think it's over just a matter of time now and to the top of their list is the government shutdown. They are convinced that most Americans objected this don't like this, and by tradition blame Republicans that would be Trump for this. And they think Trump is just swerved into a self destructive move here and so forth. Whether it was a good move or not irrelevant. Now the point is. Well, I think it was a good move. I advocated it before the midterm elections, as you know. But the president wasn't listening to me. However, I got a note from cooking or day before she prepared the audio sound bite roster. And I'm going to read this Email. Cooking is a production director, and she scours all of this stuff day in and day out to produce the audio soundbites which appear on this program. Dear rush this weekend. Could be an all time record for rush mentions almost did a whole Q sheet that was just sound bytes about you. But then I decided I had to mix in a few good ones from other people because like you say, you don't like the show to be about you. But if you wanted to be I have forty sound bites today that mentioned your name that blame you that essentially say you are running the country, I could have done forty bytes. But I just picked the most interesting and plus a montage, of course. All these senators and congressmen whining about a guy on the radio. It's unbelievable. It's still all about you though. Anyway, because they're convinced you caused the shutdown that you are running the country, and you are the president except for some people who now think that what makes this even worse is that you're nothing, but an entertainer. You know, we go back and forth on this. What would you depending on the day, depending on the issue? I'm titular head of the Republican party conservative move with the next activate Sherston entertainer. When the effort for thirty years, it's been that that cycle. So to give you a flavor here is the Montauk audio sound bite number one. And it's the exasperated drive by media convinced that I am running America this people from NBC CNN PMS NBC Republicans strategic syndicated radio host. Oh, really? Really? Syndicated radio her I'm being turned on even by brethren in the business here, and there's some bloggers. So anyway, here it is. This is one we don't I'm not playoff forty. I don't have all forty, but I'm the vast majority Q sheet here today is me every gosh Limbaugh is in control of the government..
