But Mr. Pence's trip to Miami to showcase the administration's hardline efforts to oust Mr. Madero is likely to resonate with an all block of Latino voters in the nation's largest swing state and that could help another President Donald Trump more for Maureen groppy, Washington correspondent at USA Today.

The expert number we will call area that we know that being the expert contract is hold on percents. And we expect that the next two sets fake rosy continue in the first quarter because a new. Lasca? So last year's already down you. You know below fifty emus is already pointing to contractions over the next few months. So you means that the first half economic numbers from China. Very bad exploiting. Poacher surprising tax. We'll be heading to negatives old economic data. We showed that China is going to have a savvy slow economic growth in the first quarter. We'll be even down to six volunteer to send in the first quarter. So I think that this is also something China would like to we've and continue to government laws more conscious cynical policies was about to ask you about that. I mean with seeing the government already perform a little bit of targeted stimulus. What more policies? Do you expect to see? Sean become very, you know, age if you know, not say creative.

"Violence in Chicago. Flying drones bombs. And assassination attempt of Madero Lau chaos in. Venezuela civically in Caracas and the California wildfire fifth largest in his story not to. Mention the politics of the. Day tons going on Kate Delaney broadcasting from Sedona Arizona hey everybody, so let's jump I to, the I'm, going to jump to the flying drones I think this is the craziest story in the photo that. I saw was frightening so President Nicolas Maduro claims he was the subject of an assassination plot using explosive rigged drones, and. They say it's the? He. Says it's the people who are far right Venezuelan exiles living in Florida and. Columbia that we're, after him, Maduro was. Addressing military parade in Caracas on live TV when he suddenly halted and looked, into the sky after Hearing explosion he and his wife were swamped with aids carrying bulletproof shields, but. They, both. Escaped uninjured smoke. Could be seen. Coming out of a building window at the. Site of the incident he promised a crackdown on his rivals valuing to bring down. The people responsible no matter. Who falls he said this is absolutely an attempt to kill me, and there were number of, a number, of suspects arrested without elaborating any further on who they were they talked about it was really crazy. To see the photos from and I have to say you could see that his wife sort of ducked and Know it's weird because Madero has been in. Power for how long now as you've, got hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans fleeing, the country food medicine. Does not, available inflation sky high ridiculous he's a socialist. Leader he took over for the butcher Hugo Chavez in two thousand thirteen and he's accused the opposition. And the United States of working together to kind of come up, with a coup to topple, him but who knew us the drowns because the drones Can carry something explosive and so, this is how he says the latest attempt is to use the drones to do that it wasn't. About drones but closer to home sad tales again coming out of Chicago I know many of you listen to us in the great state of Illinois and I. Gotta tell you as a kid loved going to Chicago to visit. My aunt Nancy and seeing. The ballpark's and eating the food meeting the people I thought it was just a great city but you know sixty three people. Shot ten fatally and there's more that are shaky at. This point and there is a two and a half hour period where twenty five people were shot in these by different multi, injury shootings than the people were at barbecues peop-. People were doing what. You do early on a Saturday night this happened before eight o'clock, you had three people who were standing in front of a house when a shooter got out of the car and opened fire, there's a seventeen year old girl that was killed Who had, nothing to do with any of this and I said this. On a previous show, but look these gang. Idiots if they're, gonna kill each other. Kill each other don't kill innocent people what what is life worth if you're, just shooting into crowds that's ridiculous and Chicago's a nightmare it's a nightmare with this stuff, so, Rahm Emanuel the mayor get it together figure out task forces. Whatever you have to do I know that's, a Mary Poppins kind of approach but there has to be a way to crack down on this. It's it's outrageous do something lock them up do figure out a way way to patrol these areas and I don't blame the cops because again what is it. That you do how do you write this and the answers the. Answers aren't easily available but. There has to be some other way to combat this we're goodness sake speaking of combating something that's out of control massive fire. In northern California this wildfire destroying sixty eight homes Forcing thousands of people, to flee, the area it's. The fifth largest now the state, it's like numbers, getting big numbers used. To? Be something exciting not? Exciting when you're talking about fires, nobody wants to be the victim. Of the fifth largest fire ever. But you have. High temperatures, again strong wind. And what happens it, makes the fire spread so. Mendez CENA's one of the seventeen major wildfires burning, across California and the president on Sunday had to declare a major. Disaster in the, state ordering, federal funding to, be made available to help the recovery efforts saying that. Was what they had to do and these, systems can help for temporary housing? Home repairs low cost loans? Whatever it takes but this is bad and, you've got firefighters who are trying to contain that horrible car. Fire and they. They say that they're calling it it's about, forty one percent or so. Contained but these fires in college A nasty bit of business, where people have no real Ways to to to fight the fire other than to get out when they're told they. Had to evacuate so they can save their their lives as we've heard of, some sad stories of people who did not get out and it was too, late for, them to to save the, people because the. You know, the fire just. Engulf them which is horrific. I mean just absolutely terrible let's move to something else You know as. We kind, of perversely say. That America tonight is about You know what our buzz in the backyard what we're talking about and. We're talking about a whole bunch of things is what we're talking about, whether we're talking about what's happening in, our lives with kids in school or whether we're talking about the weather whether we're talking about taxes or talking about something. Else that, affects all of us and what affects us is the economics What what else affects us is the economics of, what's going. On in our? In our respective areas like. For example as I travel I don't know how people can afford to live in California and how, can they can afford speaking of this wildfires having an unfortunate there and, how they can afford to live in, New York I'm stunned by the amount of taxes they pay in both those both of those areas just crazy absolutely crazy Hi so, how about this the president was pretty happy, over the weekend he touted his approval rating he says you know what. It might be a red wave and what he said in a. In a tweedy said presidential approval numbers are very good strong economy military and. Just about. Everything else better numbers than Obama at this point by far we are. Winning on just about every front and for that reason there will not be a, Blue Wave but there may be a red. Wave forty eight percent of likely voters approve of Trump's job performance according to Rasmussen that's one report. They release that, just a couple, of days ago Gallup has the president with a forty percent approval rating compared to Obama's Forty-five real clear politics says Trump's approval rating on the economy is that fifty point three that's the rating. And the overall job approval since at forty three over the weekend the president was at a rally. In Ohio He talked about You know a couple. Of different things he's, stumping for, Republicans of course. Around the country that's the main reason here ahead of the. November midterm elections so that was a big reason for that because you've got Democrats who are slight favors favor to take over. The lower chamber so that's the job of the pres- to look at the rest. Of the team and so he's either doing those rallies or being part. Of the rallies and then Stumping for whoever.
