"Listeners and members of the Public Radio Bay Area today. Some morning cloudiness along the coast in bay, mostly sunny, further inland highs in the sixties to near 90 possibly today in the Bay Area. Guys 92 to 100 again in the Sacramento Valley in the Bay Area, areas of smoke and haze in parts of the Bay Area due to the mineral fire and personal county. From NPR and W bur. I'm Tanya. Mostly, I'm Jeremy Hobson. It's here and now Shares of companies hit hard by the pandemic jumped this morning on Wall Street after news of a major development in the race for a Corona virus vaccine. Vaccine in development by the biotech company, Madonna produced protective antibodies in all 45 people who participated in phase one trials. There were side effects to the vaccine, but it was ultimately deemed safe and is now set to move into the next phase, which will include tens of thousands of participants. Stat news reporter Matthew Harper has been covering this story in math. You start by explaining the significance of the modern, a vaccine being proven safe in the early trials, so people like to say that phase one trials are about safety and later trials are about efficacy, but really safety and ethics here kind of studied in tandem. The two things that researchers were really looking for. Here were safety. You want to make sure the side effects aren't so onerous to the vaccine couldn't be used. And to figure out if the vaccine is producing antibodies, which is We think potentially of whether the vaccine will be effective at preventing infection. We mentioned that there have been side effects thes were mitigated by the lowering of the vaccine dose. But can you describe what those side effects were? Sure, I mean the kind of side effects you get from an immune response. One thing people get seemed to get confused about is Does the vaccine give you the virus? It doesn't. This vaccine produces a protein. That is part of the virus. But it's not the whole virus, so there's no way it could make you sick in the way the virus does, and at the dose that's life to go forward here. There were some systemic side effects for just about everybody, Some kind of headache, some kind of pain and some people with fevers. I want to go back to what you were saying about. Safety and efficacy. You say that the volunteers for this trial had the antibodies, which is critical. Do we know whether that response is strong enough to prevent infection? No, we don't know that. We can only know that by doing Very large studies where we see if people get infected or not. Those studies are beginning. One thing that I think is very important People remember is that there are 23 vaccines in human trials. And the good news is that Several of them seem to be progressing, which increased the odds that will have vaccines. Next year. If not by the end of this year. I mean, it really speaks to the AU, knowing that the number of people who will eventually get this vaccine will be large. How careful do researchers have toe Me too, actually get it right this time, So we probably need a bigger debate them were having about how we're going to use these vaccines when they become available. Do they go to First responders first, do we give? The first fact seemed to get to everybody Remember there are a lot of vaccines coming out and they may have different profiles. There's this tendency in the pandemic to think about having a vaccine is this magic bullet? But you know, we're hoping for a vaccine is about 75% effective, the FDA said a Bard about 50% That's not like the measles vaccine where you give it and your odds of getting the disease are nothing. It would make a huge difference in the spread of covert 19. Yeah, actually was thinking of it in terms of a measles vaccine or a polio vaccine that prevents those diseases or do we expect something like the flu vaccine? Where It confers some immunity, but in many cases only serves to reduce the severity of the illness. For some patients, you don't know these things until you do a phase three trial. Things do fail with some regularity. There are huge surprises. Because biology's really complicated you mentioned face three for Moderna. They're set to study this beginning July 27th with 30,000 patients. That's really an astronomical number compared to the 45 people in the phase one trial. What are some of the concerns with with a child of this size? Well because of the pressing need every company developing vaccines, and the JJ is skipping. Normal stages that you would take in development. That probably doesn't pose some gigantic safety risk, but there could be rare side effects. You need to have a big enough sample size that you can take those up. But the other problem is we want to figure out if the's vaccines prevent infection, and so you need to either follow people for a very long time or follow a lot of people. We don't have time. So we're following a lot of people, and that's true for the Madonna vaccine. It's true for the Oxford vaccine that's being developed with AstraZeneca as we learn more You know, we'll we'll have a better sense of whether an antibody response is indicative that the vaccine is going to work. It sounds astronomical, but it's actually not unheard of trial size, but perhaps the first time that the world is watching As it happens in real time that stat news reporter Matthew Harper on the news that Madonna's Corona virus vaccine has produced antibodies and its phase one trial participants. Matthew. Thank you so much for putting this into context for us. Thanks so much for having me. Some breaking news this afternoon from Washington, the nation's top infectious disease expert, Dr Anthony Fauci, is pushing back after a scathing op ed from President Trump's trade advisor Peter Navarro. Navarro said. Quote Anthony Fauci has been wrong about everything I have interacted with him on in an interview with the Atlantic that's just out today found she calls the White House behavior bizarre. And says he found she isn't going anywhere. Let's bring in NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson Mara tell us more about what he has been saying. Well, she gave an interview to the Atlantic. He called the efforts from the White House to discredit him bizarre and nonsense. And actually, he said they were going to ultimately backfire on the president and that the White House understood that And that's why they have disavowed thie op ed that Peter Navarro wrote attacking Fauci. He said that Peter Navarro was in a world by himself and I can tell you that there many people who work in the White House who would agree with him. Hey also said that he met with the chief of staff of the White House, Mark Meadows, who told him that the op ed by Navarro was a mistake and that Meadows himself didn't know about it. So those are just some of the things that factory saying But the thing is, we've just been reporting in the last few days about others in the Trump administration, who have also gone after watching including Admiral Jaguar, who's also on the task force that it seems like a pattern coming from the White House that they're going after. Anthony Fauci, who's saying things that they don't like? Well, this is the common thread in this White House kind of one hand, is working against the other hand. On the one hand, there seemed to be an organized concerted effort to undermine Fauci to explain all the kinds that found she was wrong. They've told given reporters kind of chapter and verse of all the Times found she was wrong..

"Navarro back in January warning about almost predicting potentially devastating impact of the corona virus. When did you see them? And how does that square with what you've often said that nobody could predict because it sounds like he was predicted? I didn't see him but I heard he wrote a memo talking about pandemic. I didn't see him. I didn't look for them either. I asked him about it just a little while ago because I read something about a memo that used to why didn't look for it and see he said yes. I talked about the possibility of Pandera. Nobody said it's going to happen but you know there is a possibility. There always has been a possibility. I obviously was concerned about it because I closed down our country to China which was heavily infected. I then closed it down to Europe but I'm not going to go out and start screaming. This could happen. This could happen so again as President. I think president has to be a cheerleader for their country. Also of note today more staff shakeups in the West Wing. The president removed the Inspector General. Who would have led the committee overseeing the two trillion dollar corona virus package? The Acting Navy secretary resigned today days after relieving a respected Navy aircraft carrier captain of his duties. Yesterday Thomas Mode suggested Captain Brent Crozier had been stupid and naive when he voiced concern over the spread of the virus on the Teddy Roosevelt and for his crew and trump has yet another new press secretary. Though you'd be forgiven if you didn't know the departing press secretary. Most Americans could not identify her from a photo. Stephanie Grisham served as Press Secretary for nine months without ever giving a press briefing as for her replacement what we know so far is she is on message when it comes to trump's handling of the corona virus. The woman on the right in. This video is a now fired. Fox News Anchor. The woman on the left who you'll hear defending trump. She would be the new press secretary. This president will always put America first. He will always protect American citizens. We will not see diseases. Like the corona virus. Come here we will not see terrorism. Come here and isn't that refreshing when contrasting it with the awful presidency. It President Obama the president's taking control making sure we're safe from the corona virus. And he's doing everything right. Since president has under control in America. We'll see that just like with every single international incident. He knows what he's doing. Good point to begin our leadoff discussion here on a Tuesday night. Was Philip. Rucker White House Bureau chief for The Washington Post also happens to be CO author with his post colleague. Carol leg of the best selling book a very stable Genius Shannon petty piece veteran journalists senior White House reporter for us at NBC News. Digital and Dr Are Mecha- dodger. He's an expert in emergency medicine. Infectious Diseases also a senior scholar with the Center for Health Security at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Health. Good evening and welcome to you all Shannon. I'd like to begin with you. Should we be concerned that the president says he never saw the memo warning of a potential pandemic up to and including as of today sensitive been written about in the New York Times last night? Well this is what we know about this memo from Peter Navarro Navarro since around a lot of memos and at this point the feeling inside the West Wing prior to this so in January. When this memo was written was that this was just another. Peter Navarro memo. He comes up with a lot of ideas. That people in the West Wing characterizes harebrained ideas. He is often predicting tragedy. These are the words of people in the West Wing who we spoke to and this was sort of written off just another one of Peter. Navarro's you know concerns or some people would describe conspiracy theories and he wasn't really voice. That was being listened to in the West Wing. Well this is the one time he was Kinda right on target but I will say he was the only one in the administration who was sounding the alarm on this when they saw an entire city of millions of people in China locked down. You didn't necessarily have to be You know a public health expert to understand that maybe there was something going on there. I mean there have been reports by my colleagues others about reports coming out of the army reports coming out of the intelligence community that all predicted that this is something really serious That could be coming to the US. And we've asked the president about those before and he's continued to say that either he wasn't aware of them or as we heard today that he was aware of them. And that's why he will supposedly lockdown China even though of course it wasn't a lockdown because there were tens of thousands of people who traveled from Chinese to the US But you know but he's continued to sort of right off the potential for these early warning signs but I do think When we step back even further wants this is all over we will find a number of additional steps an addition to the ones we already know about where people within the administration were attempting to sound the alarm Back in January even as far back as late December worker. I believe we have a portion of today's briefing where the president went after the World Health Organization. It's all kind of enmeshed with China. It's all enmeshed with politics and we'll play a bit of that and talk about it on the other side World Health Very China centric as I say very very basically everything was very positive for China. Don't close your borders. They told me that I mean. They strongly recommended that telling me but they strongly recommended that we not close our borders. That would have been a disaster would have been a total disaster and literally. They called every shot wrong for years. We've funded them in and it's probably spending at least fifty eight million a year but it's much more than that because then we fund some of the work. They do which is good work. But we're going to look at it now so I was off by three hours Phil he first one after the. Who at the briefing? He then phoned into Hannity Tonight. Three hours later to go after the. Who again tell the Nice folks watching? What does it work here at work here? Brian is a president WHO's under siege. Because he didn't take. Coruna virus seriously enough at the outset and is now casting blame. We've seen the last couple of weeks him. Try to target specific governors For their failures in leadership according to him and then today we saw him introduced this idea that the World Health Organization was to blame because they were not tough enough on China at the outset did not declare pandemic or early enough. This is all according to the President Assessment and You know it fits a pattern in this presidency were. This president has so little regard or faith in international institutions. We've seen him go. After NATO. For example. We've seen him try to tear apart alliances and multilateral trade deals and here again we see him going after a another global institution of the World Health Organization. And I imagine it's going to continue because it's an easy way for him to to message to his base is political supporters to say. Don't fault me all these other guys. Hey Dr the president continues to push this. Malaria medicine couldn't have been more direct today. Said people should just take it. What do you say and can you fill our audience and on something? We're hearing more about. Its these antibody tests. Sure so when it comes to hydroxy chloroquine. Everybody's shouldn't just take it. If this is a drug that needs to be studied in a randomized controlled trial to know whether or not it works. Who WORKS ON? What the doses. What the side effect profile is. It's true that this is a drug that's approved and been given to lots of patients with lupus and there's a derivative that's used for malaria but we WANNA make sure that we're actually using it correctly and it does have in vitro activity and I've prescribed it to patients that are hospitalized with pneumonia from krona virus. But I'm not giving it to every patient and I'm doing it. According to a protocol and at the same time I really WANNA randomized controlled trial to help us. So I don't think it's the right thing to tell people to go out and get it and create an increased demand for something that isn't quite proven it should be given in a controlled. Setting antibody tests are really important tool that we will start to have come online many different places around the country. What that will do is tell us if someone has been exposed to this virus maybe they had mild illnesses. Maybe they didn't have any symptoms at all and that will help us understand where this has spread and some of those people will likely be immune from infection. Meaning that they can go about their lives. They can be the ones that are working and they can help. Bring the economy back to life. So it's really important that we get. Antibodies has out there because it is a way forward into the next phase of this pandemic response Shannon pretty piece. We mentioned the new faces in the West Wing. Starting with a new chief of staff and now a new press secretary very familiar with frequency N. N. viewers. She made her bones on that network during the last presidential election cycle defending all things trump related. And I love these moves. Even though we're in the middle of this incredible pandemic are related to the reelection campaign Bringing Mark Meadows. He is someone who is politically savvy who is season defending the president on. Tv was a move for the reelection. And now the new Press Secretary Kaley mckinney is very well known on Fox News and conservative. Tv She was a CNN contributor She's very skilled at defending the president on television and she knows the type of messaging that the campaign is working for and can be a real conduit between the White House and the campaign There's other people in the administration. Now who have been acting as a link between the White House in the campaign Jared Kushner talks regularly with Brad Part scale. The campaign manager Hope Hicks has been brought back into the White House. She of course was on the twenty sixteen campaign and is really familiar with how the campaign operates. Leo But but Kayleigh I think is really the most recently and obviously the most person who has been the most directly involved with the campaign. Who's now in the White House and can start Coordinating and building those bridges between the reelect. And what's happening the message coming out of the White House and the president so even a amid all of this there is still going to be an election in November and everyone in the White House is still aware of that and and while so much administration is obviously focused on responding to this. There's certainly still as always one I November and Phil Rucker. That newspaper you work for is reporting that these two elements. I just mentioned new chief of staff. New Press Secretary are related. Yeah they certainly are Brian because the you know Mark Meadows a minute the chief of staff looking to really jump start the campaign operation inside the West Wing this heading into the general election and he brought in Keighley mcenaney as the press secretary as Shannon with just pointing out. Our understanding are reporting today. Is that Kaley? Mckinney's main job is going to be the go. On television to defend the president not necessarily a dealing our to our day to day with reporters at Meadows has bolstered the press in other areas including.

"Thing I mean that sounds as far as the next door at the the messaging from the administration is it confused at best including this apparently at a little argument broke out in the White House situation room between Dr Anthony Fauci and White House trade adviser Peter Navarro Navarro started handing out materials about hydroxy caloric Wayne and he said there's clear therapeutic efficacy so of course doctor felt she said well there's anecdotal information and Navarro apparently became very belligerent about the whole thing until other people in there I had to calm him down from going after vouching doubt what found she had said there's evidence both ways that there's if there is efficacy and there is not and it's just hasn't panned out yet we it's too early to tell but what you have is the president of actually saying this is the miracle drug and members of his administration says if the president says it's a miracle drug it's a miracle drug and then you have medical experts like Dr Fauci going wait a minute there is no science here and you have to look at the science and I I'm surprised I found she is still in there and has been asked to resign truly surprised when we were talking about social distancing and stuff yesterday felt she was asked why he was an American airing a mask he said he'd been tested the day before and was fine so that's why he apparently wasn't wearing a mask well Sir all right there all right the president and Republicans are facing efforts to make voting easier and they want to challenge the efforts to try and make the voting easier during the corona virus pandemic.

"And in fact when my colleague Kevin fracking asked the President about that in the final question of the day. That's the president cut. The briefing short snapped at him. And that's remains. They remain an incredibly defensive posture. Trying to defend trying to explain how they were so slow to move on this crisis. Even though they had warnings for months and the president's inner circle was trying to convince him to act to mobilize the federal government to do something about it and so we're looking at potentially one hundred two hundred thousand people dying and looking at projections in the best of times and the president last night once again Joe. Taking three to four hours of his top tier teams time to work on his camera. Camera time so he can go out there and get attention and deliver absolutely nothing new these people standing onstage Dr Cheek Dr Birch burks and the other members of his team standing out there for hours having to present something to the press which meant they had to prepare something for the press and it was all a complete waste of time. Quite frankly time that is being used to save lives time. That was not used last night because the president needed attention even when they're in these meetings even when they're doing their jobs away from the cameras. They're getting distracted by idiots like Peter Navarro. Navarro actually has the nerve to throw down files in front of DR ALGAE SAYING THAT. This is proven science. Said he knows what he's talking about and his yelling at Navarro lecturing are Navarro is yelling at found she also the Washington Post article. We'll talk about how these healthcare professionals who were scrambling to save our lives will be in the middle of important work. And they will get a call from jared or somebody else saying hey. Wouldn't it be great if we can have oracle helping us out with the rim of the brilliant idea about how Google is going to do things with Walmart Park? It's all nonsense. It's not working. They're not letting medical professionals and healthcare professionals do their jobs and and let's bring the US editor Financial Times. Said Liu said I want to talk to you and caddy Great Britain in a second but as we go through this time line that the Washington Post laid out AIDS are who had gone the information the beginning of January win when they were all getting together and meeting and the Intel community by January. The fifth or sixth were warning. The president's daily briefings tried for two weeks to get the president's ear. He finally got a phone call with him on the eighteenth. It was the eighteenth of January as or finally gets to talk to trump Cova nineteen but trump decides instead to talking about the pandemic which by the way he had been warned about in his daily briefings the president decides since January fifth or six the president decides instead to bright as are his. Hhs Secretary who's desperately trying to tell the president this that he's angry at him over the HHS's attempts to limit vaping because it had backfired on him politically and as I said. The president dismissed him as alarmist and the secretary was so worried that he couldn't get the president's attention that he was asking an associate. How do I get him? Pay attention to this. This is serious. Will You keep going through this this this list? And you have the president on the twenty second saying that. He's not worried at all. We have a totally under control. It's only one person from China. It's going to be fine. That's when he was in Davos. Ms Ivory Tower in Davos in January. The twenty second and then of course on the twenty third as China is completely shutting. Down Wuhan and also not cooperating with us and blocks. Us Lab from obtaining virus samples on the twenty four. Th this is when Donald Trump said January was still in January by the way friends trump offers lavish praise on China and its president saying quote. China has working very hard to contain. The Corona Virus United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will work out well. In particular on behalf of the American people. I want to thank President Xi. He praises China's transparency January. The twenty four th when it is China that will not give his own administration health officials the information they need to prepare for this virus soon to become a pandemic. It's just absolute chaos. The presence in never never land for seventy days and Americans are dying this week in large part. Because we weren't prepared. I think the opportunity here to point out the difference in political systems that China's spent weeks denying virus. Penalizing people were blowing the whistle on it and then Not Sharing information key information about serums et Cetera with other countries including United States. That energy to criticize China has been completely neutralized because trump did exactly the same thing. You wasted critical weeks in denial as he. He sideline people who are blowing the whistle on this. He refused to listen to the intelligence agencies and to the federal scientists as well as sexually as are the fact that a couple of weeks after that time line that U Reading out Joe that he banned flights from China is the one thing that he keeps pointing to to say. Look in the in. The words of Sean Hannity. This is one of the greatest acts in human history. Most extraordinary pay piece of exaggeration. I've had and there's another competition in the last few weeks but in fact ban wasn't forty applied. We now know that forty thousand Americans did come from China during the month of February and March and help spread this pathogen in places like Seattle Chicago New York and elsewhere so the idea that this one flight ban the sole action in the absence of any other steps to prepare to stockpile the a reported very. Well the idea that this is is the presidential leadership that help prevent a pandemic in the United States is grotesquely wrong. America is approaching the point if the cavs continuous they'd been continuing the mortality rate.

"Out front. Next trump floats a new conspiracy theory on voter fraud this time blaming google for costing him the popular vote. Why is he going there. Plus breaking news recession fears the white house reportedly considering a new tax cut to keep the economy going so why is the president then saying the economy has never been better and elizabeth with warren apologizes for the controversial dna test. Is it enough to silence critics. Let's go out front good evening everyone. I'm kate baldwin in for erin burnett out front tonight. Trump is pushing a new conspiracy theory once again about voter fraud this time though it's google's fault apparently here's his this tweet from today report just out google manipulated from two point six million to sixteen million votes from hillary clinton for hillary clinton in two thousand sixteen election. This was put out by a clinton supporter. He continues not a trump. Supporter of google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought bigger than thought. There is no evidence of that. There is no real evidence of that. I should say his theory based off not a new report even but congressional testimony from last month testimony that got little attention was largely ignored that is until the theory appeared today on fox business discussing claims by a researcher named robert epstein who claims google may have shifted millions of votes to hillary clinton. How will epstein the researcher blames bias in google search results. It's in twenty sixteen google. Search algorithm likely impacted undecided voters in a way that shifted at least the two point six million votes to hillary clinton. The two point six million is a rock bottom minimum. The range is between two point six and and ten point four million but to be clear there is no evidence that search results were skewed. Additionally google denies that and take it one step further further. If search results were biased. There's no evidence that it changed a single vote but in typical trump fashion none of that context matters or of the fact act that all real evidence shows that hillary clinton won the popular vote by nearly three million votes clinton was quick to respond to the president's new claim tweeting this the debunked study you're referring to was based on twenty-one undecided voters but context. That's for context that's about half the number of people associated associated with your campaign who have been indicted. Clearly still no love lost there and here is the thing. This isn't the first time that the president has pushed baseless claims claims about millions of illegal votes in two thousand sixteen. Remember this from president trump's policy adviser stephen miller having worked before on on a campaign in new hampshire. I can tell you this issue of busing voters into new hampshire is widely known by anyone who's working hampshire politics. It's very real. It's very serious for us. This morning. On this show is not the venue for me to lay it. All the evidence there was no evidence. There's no evidence of that. I myself have spoken to the offices of the secretary of state of new hampshire and the attorney general's office way back when he was talking about this and they didn't then have any evidence of seeing seeing any buses coming in so there's that and then there is this in many places like california. The same person votes many times. You probably heard about that. There was like to say oh. That's a conspiracy theorist. There's not a conspiracy theory flux millions and millions of people. It was much illegal voting like really early and we have to discuss early thing. That's sort of school many things that are going on so many things. I wonder what happens during the evenings when those places are locked again no evidence no no matter how many times you say it but don't take my word for it. The president's own commission to investigate widespread voter fraud found none before it disbanded. I'm going to speak to a member of of that now defunct commission in just a moment but first kaitlan collins. She's out front live outside the white house for us caitlyn. Why is the president conspiracy theories. We know that he has an affinity venditti for but why is he pushing this latest conspiracy theory and why now well the president has long had this accusation. That google is bias against him. He wants claim. They were suppressing positive stories about him without any evidence and now today on a day where the president had a live public schedule he clearly saw this clip that you just played of the psychologists but also we should note the the president is citing the study wrong. He's claiming that google manipulated votes but in the study the study that we should note is widely disputed and denied by google the psychologist all just simply saying that there was bias in the search results for google and that is what gave those votes to hillary clinton even though this person doesn't explain what he means by google <unk> gave these boats to hillary clinton however the president has taken this claim he's run with it and even put his own spin on it and of course even though it doesn't even match what the author himself said which he told told c._n._n.'s daniel dale today the president is still maintaining that there was a change of the boats. This fits a pattern that the president has had where he has long insisted privately amp publicly publicly that he should have won the popular vote. It's been something that's bothered him ever since election night in two thousand sixteen where the president defeated hillary clinton of course and they'll throw a college but even even just yesterday you were playing these clip to the president talking about voter fraud just yesterday as the president was leaving his vacation in new jersey and coming back here to the white house he was alleging that there was voter fraud us talking about voter i._d. Laws and how there needed to be stronger once in the context of him talking about guns reporters questioned what the two had to do with each other and when reporters pointed out your own voter fraud commission disbanded because it couldn't find anything the president continued to make these allegations even though there was nothing to back them up of course here but this also helps the president use this tactic of feeding into this distrust of tech companies something he thinks can help him in the election yeah. It's like it's like it's like a value meal deal of his favourite conspiracy theory topics. It's great to see you. Thanks so much. I'll front now. David david gergen former presidential adviser to four presidents samantha vinograd senior adviser to the national security adviser in the obama administration and matthew dunlap. He's maine's secretary of state. He was also a member president trump's commission to investigate voter fraud. Thank you guys for being here. <hes> david the president is pushing it another conspiracy theory about voter fraud. We've kind of laid it out. Caitlyn laid out kind of how he didn't even get the conspiracy didn't even get the theory right. If you follow the theory why why now why again what what's what is this you so bloody insecure he is this has been an issue pointed out that had been with him since the elections because he feels he's he he feels that people don't see him as a legitimate president unless he won the majority vote and he wants to sort of convince people otherwise but we have to look him south. He's he's been spinning out. Conspiracy theories more frequently now than they used to just this last few days. He said he's accused the press of trying to bring him down on the economy alemi so it wouldn't it wouldn't be good for him but in this case if you look at it. This testimony was is weeks old. It just came up on fox's. This is a better by the way and the person i'm mr epstein professor epstein. This is not a peer reviewed arguments. Not a peer reviewed article article anywhere. It's not an article disappeared anywhere but anyone can tell <hes> professor seen on his own on internet appears to have last been an academic emiko the university of the south pacific and he was not a tenured personality was a he was a had a non tenure job so typically disputes like this. Their academics have a chance to peer review. They have a chance to talk it over and compare notes. It's not one man carrying the sphere and can get on national television until now until new until sam if you allow for the logic that the president is laying out here just go with me then president trump it seems to me would also have to accept that russia's interference and disinformation in the two thousand sixteen election also as he put it manipulated votes votes but that would be manipulated votes for him right. That's exactly right president. Trump continues to adhere to the double standard diet. He was quick quick to point the finger at interference or influence that is unhelpful to him while opening the door to accepting foreign dirt or using media platforms like fox news to spread conspiracy spiracy theories. It's a double standard and to david's point. The president's insi- insecurities are making america insecure in a very specific way. We've been reading reading today about the chinese government. The communist government using information warfare spread lies about protests in hong kong. We know that vladimir putin so's conspiracy theories an an amplified on social media. The president of the united states is doing exactly the same thing we can analyze why he's doing it but the fact of the matter is that it's almost like he's he's waking up every day and deciding he's going to make vladimir putin's job a little bit easier by spreading these lies about our our democracy and at this point point he doesn't need to get information on voter fraud or influence from a tenured or an un- tenured professor. He has an intelligence community he. He has a new acting director of national intelligence officials at d. h. Us he's getting his election security briefings or cherry picking them. I should say from television asian rather than engaging with his actual team and let's go to one of those people who was part of a place to gather actual information on these actual topics mister secretary. Thank you for for coming on you. Were on the president's voter fraud commission. Were there any conversations questions and let alone any evidence offered of google searches impacting votes during in the brief time that this commission was together. Google was never brought up an any of our discussions and this is really institutional gas lighting is worse for for the president's own intelligence community has told everyone that not a single vote was manipulated or change in either the twenty sixteen or the two thousand eighteen election's and yet here. He is going off talking about you. Some phantom menace once again disrupted our election system. The fact of the matter is all fifty states state certified their election results in two thousand sixteen and two thousand eighteen. Every single vote was counted accurately in maine. I won't speak for the entire country but it'll sound like i am. We use paper ballots. How'd you hack fell end and a paper ballot so no votes retained certainly in maine and so this this effort to bring doubt upon the the entire election system only harm to our electoral process in terms of the diminished voter confidence that our voters should expect to see when they walk into bowling place elections around the local level. They're not run from the white house and they're certainly not run from google or any other search engines. This is categorically untrue david but is all of this. I just i don't i'm trying to i'm trying to get the thought of one ua why the president's obsessed with this concept but it does it does he think it works like this strategy of i will so distrust in the electoral process in that somehow turns out my base more or is it more laying the groundwork to if need be questioned the outcome in twenty twenty well. There is <hes> what one might say is a conspiracy theory on the left exactly what he's trying to do is is lay the groundwork for call into question the on election night at twenty twenty and the days that followed whether it's a fraudulent election and if he can claim eh frog general election then he did say i should stay in power until we get tests resolved we have a new election and so forth and so on so there are people in the left who had that fear. I see so far no basis yeah. There should be no vases of that fear because we're going to try to not dealing conspiracy. You can pull reality out of my cold. Whole dead hands really believes this who is left you kind of get to this who's left in his national security team to actually set him straight deny coats who was a <music> seen as a well respected voice <hes> straightforward a straight shooter in his national security team he left last week kate stacking his cabinet with sick offense may make the president feel better in the near term but as we've just discussed it is not protecting our country and at this point. It's not just a question of who's willing to tell him things that he doesn't wanna hear. There has been multiple streams of reporting that information is being censored before even reads his desk desk new indication. He reads the presidential daily briefing but there's been reporting that the chief of staff told the former secretary of homeland security not to bring up election security already in front of the president. There's been other reporting that he doesn't like talking about russia because it makes them uncomfortable and feeds his insecurities as david was referencing so so at this point we really have to beware the fact that the president is getting his intelligence briefings from a shadow cabinet of foreign leaders like vladimir putin and media personalities that have no access to classified information and have a biased one way or another. That's that's that's the craziest bit about this when you have access to more information and then anyone and you still based off something that you see on cable t._v. Secretary you alluded to this but i wanna hit this as a final point. You're in charge of overseeing elections in your state. What what is the real impact of the president any president pushing a conspiracy theory like this do you think do you think it has an impact on voters. I think it does tremendous harm <unk> recklessness irresponsible for him to do that like i say our stock in trade is not results of elections stock in trade is voters believing in the process when have our country's leader saying that the results you know have been manipulated either from an internal or external source for people who care so much about this process us and then our then persuaded that vote may not matter. They may stay away from the polls which could be an end goal for some folks. I find it incredibly objectionable mold. Anybody would so that kind of distant formation anything to back it up. Thank you guys very much. I really appreciate it. Thanks much out front for us. Next breaking news the white house reportedly considering a new round of tax cuts to boost the economy but why according to president trump things have never been better plus president trump already backing away from be stronger back from checks that he said that he wanted if so what do democrats what can democrats do and elizabeth warren takes on the controversy of past claims of native american heritage bridge will this silence or biggest critic president trump.

Officials are now considering a new tax cut as as recession fears mount a payroll tax cut specifically the one white house official is pushing back tonight telling c._n._n. That more tax are certainly on the table but it's not under consideration at this time at the same time. President trump is dismissing concerns about the economy in a tweet today saying this quote our economy is very strong despite the horrendous lack of vision and by jay powell and the fed but the democrats are trying to quote unquote will the economy to be bad for purposes of the twenty twenty election so how does this all impact the twenty twenty race how front now for republican senator and presidential candidate rick santorum the former democratic governor of michigan jennifer granholm guys. Thanks for being here senator. Let me ask you first. If if the white house is now discussing payroll tax cut or let me expand it to any tax cut at all. How do you square that with really the glowing statements on the economy and the relative basically complete dismissal of concerns about that various same economy. We're hearing from the white house and look. I think the president understands that we're we've had a very strong economy conroy for the last two years. It's dramatically picked up since the obama administration and <hes> and he's done a lot of positive things like regulatory cuts and tax and tax cuts <hes> but there are signs signs that and even admitted it today. I saw some comments from today. He said you know that this this war that he's engaged in with china i mean it's a battle <hes> that's that's having an impact is created creating uncertainty in the markets. It's created uncertainty business investment and it's probably knocking off a you know a couple of tenths of a point off off g._d._p. And and it's slowing down the economy a little bit and so he's trying to look at things that may counter that but i would just say this. I got to give the president credit. I mean president obama didn't take on china and he probably wasn't in a very good position economically do so the economy wasn't that strong president bush and take on china president clinton didn't take on china and jennifer knows because she's for michigan. There's a lot of folks in the industrial midwest who wants to take on china who were tired of china eating our lunch and at least give the president high marks for doing the battle and risking his economy and doing right so it's one thing to take on china is another thing to not accept reality or acknowledge reality that tariffs are going to be impacting consumers and he said that he said that in the short term that this trade war could have an impact on the economy but in the long term it's essential for our survival but surgery that they're taking over and over again ever from peter navarro down peter navarro navarro even saying to jake tapper on sunday that china the terrorists are having no impact what he's talking about what peter said because i was on the show yesterday right they didn't have our said was that it's not having an impact on consumers and i think that's true but it is having having an impact on business investment because of the uncertainty out there it is having an impact on certain industries like like the agriculture industry and so it's having an impact on the overall g._d._p. But i agree with peter navarro when you have inflation at under two percent it's hard to make the claim that consumers are paying a lot more in in as a result of the war governor if if they would go forward with a payroll tax cut the last one happened during the obama administration to try and boost the economy during the last downturn. What do you think that this could be a good move both politically and economically from well. I certainly think he thinks it would be and he would have to get congress to go. Oh along with it at a point where he has racked up trillion dollar deficits so i'm not sure that you would find that and it's also clearly an indication as you suggested that he he knows that the economy is not as rosy as he and all of his economic advisors are acknowledging appreciate rick saying or at least acknowledging that but today there was a report out from the national association for business economics they surveyed hundreds of economists business economists seventy four percent of them say there will be a recession session in the next two years the vast majority of them saying before the elections so the shaky out there but can i just say one other thing that is really important to to keep in mind all of these top level economic indicators the stock market g._d._p. They don't have any impact on the bottom half of the economy which are the people who aren't investing in the stock market's of which it's half of america forty th this is amazing to me. Forty three percent of americans who are working cannot afford the basics. They're called asset limited. Income constrained employed people forty three percent so there are two economies. The people at the top are doing great. The ones who got the tax cut the businesses who got that huge tax but everyday citizens are not people who you do not have retirement people who do not have healthcare who are in the gig economy so i think that regardless of whether an recession is imminent or will happen before the election. There is the second economy that the trump policies have only hurt and that's a problem well. That's a good example of the president's talking knock-about democrats talking down the economy. The reality is that wages reasons the reality rick. I'm not talking down. I'm just giving you facts. Not just the facts yeah. The fact is that wages have been going up faster than any. No wages are down right now. Between first and second quarter wages have dropped. If you look at arts have dropped manufacturing output has dropped up to two percent. These are all signs of what is going on. I'm not talking down. Nobody wants to see a recession but what i'm saying is that the basic economic indicators are showing a weakening economy and those don't even address the half of the economy that is not in the stock market so i just i would make the point that if you look at the look at wages since the president has has taken office they have grown stronger than at any time and i think the last twenty years we they've been outpacing inflation which hasn't been done for low wage worker for a long time so the reality is that lower lower wage workers are doing are doing better as a result of this president and we're seeing more people back into the work force and we're seeing very low rates of unemployment so all of that helps offs low wage workers and i think his his his trade war while it does you say it does hurt business investment in the desert the economy i think ultimately ultimately this is for working men and women to make sure that these manufacturing jobs stay here or stay close by so we can have strong economic growth. It's going to benefit wage-earner so he's he's out there fighting. I i'm just gonna end with this. I have talked to. I wouldn't call them big business. I'm calling them farmers from ohio and other farmers who aren't they are absolutely getting her. Make an it's very difficult to make a short term pain long-term gain argument of folks. They really can't the old out. I i agree and and the president is you know is fourth a plan to try to help soothe that problem but <hes> there's no question certain elements of our economy are going to get hurt by this trade war but it is a war that i look jennifer. Granholm has been out there saying. We need to take on china now. We're doing it. Don't complain don't rick. It's a question of how you do it. It's a question of how you do it. The tariff let are a blunt instrument. He is now doing deal yet. He's the first to do. It won't be at least try why well let's just see how much how much more of those tariffs actually go into effect because now the president knowing that they're actually can impact is now continue on just dangle them and dan is pulling them off guys. Thanks so much many more months to talk about the economy. Thanks guys out front next.

I pray that the president will listen to the ninety percent of the american people who support universal background checks. Why is the speaker saying in this right now. Because maybe of these remarks from president trump about those very same background checks just remember this big mental until problem and we do have a lot of background checks right now. Just remember we already have a lot of background checks catching the president sounding a different tune today today. Just we'll just days ago yeah so what change sunlen body is out front sunlen on. What are you hearing about this. Okay those comments right. There really do underscore this dynamic that we've seen play out with president trump so many times before on capitol hill that he he is always the wildcard hanging over every negotiation the present. He speaks in these broad strokes. He's vague at times. He changes his position very often. It does not help with congressional deals coming together now. After the president said that appears to be backing away from supporting tougher background checks for gun sales the senate minority leader chuck schumer saying point blank. We have seen this movie before and he'll work top. Republicans will also tell you that nothing is going to move on guns. Nothing has a a chance at all unless the president fully endorses something and then sticks to it so well. Lawmakers are spending part of the recess right now going over options with the white house. There's there's a bipartisan group trying to see what could pass comically these kate the president really again changing his tune really inject so much uncertainty into an already very uncertain uncertain situation. It's absolutely right. Thanks so much online out front now democratic congressman from ohio and presidential candidate tim ryan congressman. It's great to have you. Thank you for being here when you here when you heard the president say that which is just remember we already have strong background checks on. Does that worry you do you think he is. Do you think he's signaling something. I have no idea i it's hard to follow the president anymore and you just showed clips back to back. He's saying one thing one day something else a day or two later either. He is is intentionally trying to manipulate the american people slow walk this the old potomac two step right. We'll just keep we'll keep talking and then things will die down or or he has diminished mental faculties because he's saying something completely opposite of what he said two days ago and it could be part of it and it's just not what that he's trying to walk back from something. That very clearly knows what he's saying. I think when it comes to him. It's really hard to tell because i've seen him. Call dayton toledo <hes> uh i've seen him make these mistakes consistently but i also see him trying to manipulate the media and manipulate the american people by saying hey we'll do something and then he doesn't but what he needs to understand is the ground is shifting on this issue and i think the republicans you see it in the polling with suburban moms and dads ads who may be republican who are hell bent on getting background checks. They're worried about sending their kids to school. They lived in communities like dayton. El paso sandy hook all all of these different areas of the country that have experienced it. This is personal and i. I don't think that the president is connecting that and he's playing the old game with the n._r._a. And he's gonna lose. Let me ask you then because access is reporting that sources are telling them that when it comes to action on the hill it's september or bust because because of the fragile momentum that comes on the heels of tragedies like what happened in dayton <hes>. Do you agree that. That is the reality i think so i think the the honest assessment is something should happen in september. We need to apply the pressure but here's the other piece that i don't think we've seen before that the pressure the the group's moms demand action gabby giffords group sandy hook they have built themselves up now to where they can go head to head with a diminished n._r._a. Because of all the problems they've got real money. They got real support. They got moms that are very very active and men who are strong strong enough to be with the moms and so this is not going away. This is different now. In the the pressure's gonna continue to be applied and so we may be able to get past december december. We've got to get rid of mitch mcconnell period end of story. He is the bottleneck. He's another one with the potomac two step. He's gonna talk his way around this. We've got to get rid of him so they can and do what they want and maybe they can slow walk and maybe they can bottleneck at but they're all up for election in two years and they're all going to be gone because this movement is stronger than it's ever been. Let me ask about another big conversation station right now. In the two thousand twenty race which is about the economy with fears of a recession looming vice president mike pence he was out <hes> he was out today who was speaking and and he said that if you or any democrat would win the presidential race this would happen much. This can't wait to hear. I honestly believe if any one of the democrats on that debate stage wins the presidency the gains of the last two and a half years would be be wiped down taxes would skyrocket the stock market tanked jobs would vanish and we would get that recession these naysayers keep talking about. What do you say the vice president on this. Oh it's a joke. I mean you know vice president pence when he was the governor of indiana n. Completely almost tanked the economy in indiana. He was gonna lose his reelection. Supply-side economics was tried in kansas. Just by senator brownback almost destroyed the economy in kansas and here we are we have trillion dollar deficits mr pants and trump. We're talking about deficits. We have the twenty two trillion dollar debt. There literally are not. There's not a single deficit hawk laughing. I'd just throw that out. I would like to consider myself a semi responsible on this issue. You are alone man on an island in a trillion dollars a year deficit of money. We're borrowing from china and other countries. They cut taxes for the wealthiest people in in the country and we saw yesterday. C._e._o.'s got a nine hundred and forty percent increase in their pay since nineteen seventy. Ah the worker got a twelve percent increase in pay so yes we are gonna ask those people to pay a little bit more in taxes but the reality the of it is they are destroying the economy because the average person still is living paycheck to paycheck. I just got check me mentioned. The debate stage the deadline to make the next extirpate stages next week. What's your path to that right now. Were on the move. We've had literally the best fund raising two weeks six. We've had in the campaign the best few days or right after the last debate <hes> we've got some good announcements coming up significant people that are going to be helping us with our online online move and we're going to run hard to try to get on the same standards apply at the next debate too so it's not like you're a completely out of the game and we're picking up huge endorsements. We've got joe biden's former coach debate. You're still using probably oh yeah. We're we're picking up momentum. I mean my my issue is name i._d. Everyone else has seventy to eighty percent name identification mind smaller because i'm from youngstown ohio. I'm not a senator. I'm not from a big state. I don't have a ivy league network to help me raise money so were were a startup but we're making progress. We have the most transformational message i would say across the board on trauma informed care for our kids in our schools calls making sure there's a mental health counselor and every school. I really look forward to checking with you seeing updates all throughout. We'll see on the trail. Thanks very much really appreciate it front front press next elizabeth warren and other candidate. She says she is sorry but is it enough to stop. These attacks have to hit pocahontas very hard again if she does has win and president trump says he really does want to buy greenland.

Xeni offers thousands of affordable eyewear styles starting at just six ninety five. No ridiculous markups cbs no hassles just quality affordable. I wear delivered right to you visits any today at zanies dot com slash c._n._n. Tonight the fi the first one twenty elizabeth warren tonight taking head on the controversy that has followed her campaign from the very beginning her past claims of native american ancestry. I know that i have made mistakes. I am sorry for harm. I have caused i have listened and i have learned allot and i am grateful for the many conversations that we've had together. Importantly worn was addressing a native american eric in presidential candidate forum in iowa and with this apology warns campaign is hoping to move on from it once enthrall. Did they pull it off out front now. Patrick he lied lead new york times politics editor and lauren lopez national political reporter for politico patrick. What did you think of today with. This apology has worn turn to page. You know it came from clearly a very sincere place. I remember when we interviewed warren late last fall. She absolutely refused to apologize. She said she didn't and have anything to apologize for terms of taking the d._n._a. Test and roll claim to native american ancestry but i think over these months she's clearly talked to to a lot of native american leaders groups. She has come to a pretty full understanding of why even if this was family lore it troubled people but but i gotta tell you kate we did <hes> we did interviews with dozens of democrats this summer about war and she's grown in the polls rising strength and over and over they brought up the native american issue and the potential for donald trump to do real harm to warn if she's the nominee and it was this it was this general concern concern it was this concern that president trump has an ability to demonize his opponents the way he did with jeb bush marco rubio and ted cruz and others and that and that if she's the nominee he will be able to beat her now. You know we don't know that and the electability question is very tricky one but at this point the reality is she did a lot of good today with this with a speech but whether the knocked her in a general election if she's the nominee impossible to electability. How do you you judge. It just depends on who you're talking to. When it comes to building laura it's has been almost a year since warned released that much criticized video where she received the results of the dna test about her heritage yardage that was yet another time that she found herself having to apologize. I mean what does does it say anything that she is still apologizing. When does it say anything to you. Does it or is it more that the questions keep coming at her. I think that the reason the questions came up in the last week was because rose warren's campaign decided that they wanted to address these issues right now she came out with a native american proposal <hes> just at the end of last week week and that was one of the most exhaustive and comprehensive halsey plans. She's put out to date. It's about double all of the other plans. It's nine thousand words were so and so they put that out in the lead up to this native american conference and then she decided when she was on that stage to address it head on and that's why i were again talking about it and i've actually heard different on the campaign trail when i've been out on the trail with her or also pulling around other candidates i haven't been hearing from in voting is a concern that much about those attacks where i think the vulnerability for her was more in the primary and whether or not progressives and native american american leaders feel satisfied with response <hes> it is striking though patrick that <hes> how you have a president trump who never apologizes by rule and then you have a a candidate you have elizabeth warren who on this issue is continuing to apologize. I don't answer to it yet but i do wonder how that. If that impacts voters i think people are impressed <hes> that she has taken the time to to listen and sort of understand about the harm that she caused me. I think a lot of people are very used to the fact that president trump does not apologize that that is not just a political strategy it sort of goes to who he is is <hes> whereas for elizabeth warren. I think what she's trying to do. In very much in the in this primary is make sure that the you you know the the elites who very much support are now the activists liberal groups who supporter sort of understand that she's done basically everything that she can to due to address this night. You had the news today. Jill biden was up in in new hampshire basically saying you may like another candidate but you really need to vote for joe because he's he's the one who can win again. Sort of injecting this electability question so you can apologize all you want but the at least the opponents to be saying <hes> you know that a person might be great but but you got to vote for biden donald trump which was tackling last week when it comes to the economy likely or eight you gotta vote for me. That is the tagline of twenty twenty bad is where we are today. Greatest you guys thanks much out front press next the danish prime minister says no deal after trump admits that he's interested in buying greenland will will that deter the president plus gino's on how much someone was willing to pay for former president obama's plug sweat and tears remember to create an ad like this one visit pure winning dot com slash c._n._n. Tonight absurd that is what denmark's prime minister is saying about president trump's confirmation that he wants to buy greenland. So what do you do with that out front. Now jack o'donnell he's a former president and chief operating officer of trump plaza casino in atlantic city jack. Thank you for coming on you know trump the businessman the real estate developer. Does this surprise you that. The president is interested in greenland first. Thanks for having me on kate. Does it surprise me no <hes> because it this is a lot of headline and a lot of talk and trump likes fat but it's curious to me quite frankly that greenland a country that probably represents one of his failed pollen greatest failed policies and in climate change that he would be interested in this <hes> but but it doesn't surprise me because it's big and it could just be that simple with with donald trump <hes> <hes> you know he likes the biggest and i'm sure somebody put it in his eerie found out somehow that greenland was the biggest island on the planet that would just be that simple wants it and that was i was actually wondering your take on that because he talked about it being strategic when he spoke to reporters. Do you think it's about some strategic national security kirti reason at all or the natural resources or is it as simple as you're suggesting that it's just ego well. This could be a legacy purchase and i think that could be very much. What's driving this <hes> for his presidency if he was able to pull it off which we all know he's not going to be able to but there are great. Natural resources says there are so i've read. I'm not an expert <hes> but you know strategically <hes> you know. I don't know how much more america could get out of it. You know who knows maybe there's some various plan in his mind where you know that could be the jumping off point for all immigrants as an example who knows on that one kate definitely really not that one yet the danish prime minister <hes> not only called it absurd the whole concept but also said this greenland is not for sale greenland is not danish-greenland lend belongs to greenland. I strongly hope that this is not meant seriously and when i was reading that i actually started wondering does a statement like that. A full will this is not going to happen. Never denial does that deter her the president or does it make them actually want it more well. I think it makes them wanna more. A good example kate was the plaza hotel in new york city. You know i think most new yorkers were horrified at the thought of donald trump trump owning the plaza thinking that he would glitz it up and his style and ruin that iconic building in the more he heard that the more he wanted it and ultimately because of that he wound up paying twice as much as the property was valued and it went into bankruptcy after he bought it this time he wouldn't be working with his own money though he'd actually be working with the american taxpayer tax payer toddlers.

S. to be successful in the South China Sea is to stand with the Japanese in opposing the Chinese do you follow that logic court absolutely I mean we can see about the Senkaku islands you know we allow the Chinese to take over Scarborough show in two thousand twelve and by doing that we empower the worst elements in the Chinese political system because we showed everybody else that aggression works so just months after taking over Scarborough the Chinese did a number of things they put pressure on other Philippine features in the South China Sea they started militarize in in other words reclaiming the islands in the Spratlys and John they then started to increase the pressure on the Senkaku islands which the Chinese have a claim to and call the Dow years so what we did was we allow the Chinese to go out and make the problem bigger and the news today there is report first reports are wrong that's what we have in the news that a blue hair out war warship this is the so called Chinese merchant marine a blue warship attacked and sank a Filipino fishing boat and president too tired to has spoken Beller closely in response but look garden you help me understand that the Chinese navy advances three kinds of warships the grey warship which is a recognizable worship with missiles and radar a white warship which is their claim of the Coast Guard a massive deployment and a blue warship what is the bluish this comes from the work of Anjou Erickson of the Naval War College who is done superb work about what people are now calling China's americana militia or the little blue man but these are fishing boats and some of them are actually quite large which are organized which operate in tandem and work with both the Coast Guard and the formal Chinese navy so this gives China a number of holes in various areas they can use that to swarm and overpower an enemy and that may be what we're seeing here in the Filipino certainly John no no question about it they they sank of Philippine fishing trawler and is clearly clearly an act of intention and one one of aggression meant to intimidate the Filipinos which is why again we emphasize that the Japanese are clear eyed about this the Japanese government are clear eyed about this and that the Filipinos are struggling with having shown ambiguity and weakness over the years and the Chinese believe that they have the upper hand well you know they under due to our to our rodrico deter to their current president he seems to be bought off by the Chinese and he has taken extremely weak positions but part of it is to turn to his for his entire life has been anti American but when he so the failure of American political will at Scarborough he decided why should I oppose the Chinese the Americans are going to help me and I might as well ally with them you gotta remember as you point out John that the Philippines is a treaty ally of the United States so we created this problem by allowing the Chinese to become aggressive and to intimidate others this didn't have to occur this was a failure of policy on the part of the Obama administration which was continuing bad policies of the administration of W. bush we've had two presidents who have created a very dangerous situation for the current president Donald John trump the China trade negotiations behind closed doors unknown but tonight in the news our colleague Peter Navarro when we spoke to before the election not since then Navarro and you did the book death by China with Peter Navarro Navarro is a major voice in the negotiations and it takes a hardline towards the Chinese business plan he's quoted tonight saying that the reports in the Wall Street journal and elsewhere and I hope this is not a dated statement but in any event he would say the same thing every time are not to be followed that they're made up of poor information and that we don't know what the negotiation is like right now we are told however on the front page of the Wall Street journal don't know if it's accurate or not it's there that the talks are stalled because of while way that makes sense you well the talks are store here and part of the reason why I publications like the Wall Street journal get it wrong is because there's somebody named Steven miniature who happens to be the treasury secretary the knighted states who issues these very optimistic statements about the progress of trade negotiations and while I understand that ministration Fishel's can cheer lead and they can try to be there good cop or whatever but Lucien I think has misled the American public about the status of trade negotiations he's continuing to do that by continuing to issue optimistic statements even when it's very clear that all of the all the negotiations are stalled these are the quotes from one of our my advice for investors is to be patient this is Sandra C. reporter with the process and don't believe anything you read or not as the Chinese of U.

"Good morning. I'm James Holman from the Washington Post. And this is the daily to for Thursday, June twenty-seventh in today's news, US asylum, officers, go to court to warn the President Trump's new asylum policies. Endanger, the lives of migrants, President Trump touches down in Japan for high stakes meetings with Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping and the house subpoenas, Kellyanne Conway while using an appropriations Bill to send a message. But first, the big idea. The first debate of the twenty twenty presidential campaign last night offered a pretty clear, roadmap of a new Democratic Party, one that favors a series of IMB issues and liberal domestic initiatives. And that is much more willing than most Democrats of the past to use the power of the federal government to intervene in the economy on a range of issues from immigration and climate change to healthcare. The democratic candidates were unabashedly in their enthusiasm for more government activism, they signalled Donelly differences with Trump, but also with a more cautious approach of Democrats, like Barack Obama, whether the Democrats put their best face forward was another question. However, the debate was often marred by squabbling, interruptions, and candidates. Talking over one another and ignoring time limits. The fractious tone, highlighted the stakes for many of the people who were on stage who have struggled for attention during the opening months of the campaign, the second debate with. With ten more candidates, including Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders will take place tonight at nine pm eastern also on MSNBC, but the Wednesday debate was not a warm up for that, nor was it the undercard event in advance of the main attraction like the Republicans had back in two thousand sixteen among the ten politicians on stage last night. There were plenty of strong resumes and experienced politicians instead, Wednesday's debate serve to open a new and important phase in the campaign for the democratic nomination. The economy described by the candidates bore little resemblance to the economy. The president speaks about on an almost daily basis at a time when unemployment is at a half-century low and the stock market continues to rise, the Democrats spoke of the imbalance between giant corporations and wealthy individuals and working families who candidates cetera being taken advantage of on healthcare, Democrats differed over whether the path to universal coverage mean Medicare for all an end to private insurance or did. It could be accomplished in a perhaps more piecemeal way. But all of them signaled, eight new aggressiveness on the part of their party to move beyond the Affordable Care Act immigration, pretty some of the sharpest exchanges of the night, as former housing secretary Hooghly on Castro challenged, others, most specifically, fellow Texan Beto aerobic to join him in changing the offense for crossing the border illegally from a criminal to a civil penalty. But overall the democratic indictment of the Trump administration was consistent and strong with the image fresh in people's minds of that father and his young daughter, who drowned trying to enter the country illegally. The Democrats denounced Trump's policies of separating families Elizabeth Warren was the lone candidate from the top tier and Wednesday's debate, the only candidate of the ten who's pulling in double digits in national polls. So she got most of the questions in the opening segments from the moderators and she made the. Most of our opportunities she projected herself as a fighter forever Americans and the enemy of big banks, big oil, big pharma, and others with the men's power over the economy. Cory Booker seeking debris out in join others in the top tier was passionate when he spoke diverting from campaign message that is talked about love and unity in favor of much more aggressive rhetoric and Amy klobuchar whose policies intemperate temperament make her more moderate than most of arrivals got off several of the best lines of the evening. When Jay Inslee, the governor of Washington state noted that he was the only candidate who's passed a law protecting a woman's right of reproductive health. She jumped into note that the female candidates on stage of pretty hard for a woman's right to choose as well. And that's the big idea here are three other headlines that should be on your radar. Number one US asylum officers, urged a federal court yesterday to block Trump's remain in Mexico program warn. That it is endangering, the lives of migrants, the labor union representing asylum. Officers filed a friend of the court amicus brief that cited with the American Civil Liberties union and other groups challenging Trump's migrant protection protocols initiative, which has already sent twelve thousand asylum-seeking migrants to Mexico since the start of the year, the union argues that the policy goes against this nation's longstanding view that asylum seekers and refugees should have a way to escape persecution in their homelands with the United States, embracing it status as a safe haven ever since before it was founded really with the arrival of the pilgrims, in the seventeenth century, the union seven the court papers that the policy is compelling, sworn officers to participate in the quote widespread violation of international and federal laws, something that they did not sign up to do, when they decided to become officers of the United States government meanwhile, up on Capitol Hill. The Senate passed a four point six billion dollar package yesterday to address the. The situation at the border, but the legislation is threatening to get hung up in disputes over a different version of the Bill that passed the house with mostly democratic votes, even as leaders in both chambers insist they won't head home for July fourth recess until they get this done a normally gridlock, congress does appear poised to act, although the legislation under consideration is a narrow funding Bill that doesn't address any of the broad problems in the asylum laws or the base causes of migration that lawmakers of both parties agree are crucial to address the legislation would however pour billions into the coffers of undermanned and overwhelmed agencies that have buckled under the burdens of nearly unprecedented levels of migration from Central America and we're learning more this morning about Trump's next big target in his war. Unim- agrements. This president is moving to withdrawal deportation protections for the family members of active duty US. True. Oops. Attorneys for the family members of men who were deployed to combat zones. Overseas are racing. Disappointed applications for what's known as parole in place. The wives of deployed soldiers have been told that this option is being terminated soon. According to NPR, the protections will only be available under rare circumstances, going forward, according to lawyers who have been talking to government officials this could so chaos in the military how can troops concentrate on keeping us safe when they're worried about their loved ones being deported. Number two, Trump touched down this morning in Sokha, Japan for the big G twenty summit as he prepared to leave DC yesterday. He unexpectedly telephoned into FOX business to attack many of the American allies. He's scheduled to meet with among them, Japan and its leader, Shinzo Ave, the country, and the prime minister hosting the meeting, the president questioned the value of the US Japanese military alliance. A cornerstone of global secure. Since the end of World War. Two Trump also insulted, European leaders who's going to sit down with the meeting renewed a tariff threat against the Europeans denounced. His handpicked Federal Reserve chairman and complained to the Vietnam is terrible. The comments fit with his habit of criticizing mischaracterizing, his counterparts before big global summits. Remarks that often put our allies on edge, and scramble, the potential for progress Trump reportedly is pretty close to getting some kind of tariff truce with China and hopes to make an announcement while he's in Japan after sitting down with Chinese president Xi Jinping, the deal would avert, the next round of tariffs from going into effect, which could push the US economy toward a self inflicted recession, but Trump is taking with him to the g twenty his top China critic and a leading cheerleader for protectionism inside the White House. Peter Navarro Navarro was a last minute. Addition to the White House's travel team Chinese officials are worried that Navarro's coming because of his longstanding hostility to Beijing. He co authored a twenty eleven book called death by China confronting the dragon there's some worry, he could derail a deal at the eleventh hour and the Kremlin confirmed overnight that Trump will meet. With Vladimir Putin for at least an hour on the sidelines of the summit, Kremlin aide, Yuri, you. Chak off said Syria, North Korea, Afghanistan Venezuela, and Iran among other things will be on the agenda for the meeting. The president's are scheduled to be joined by four other officials from each of their governments. Number three, the house oversight committee voted yesterday to authorize a subpoena of Kellyanne Conway to compel the White House, counselor to testify about her alleged hatch act violations. The oversight committee voted twenty five to sixteen for the subpoena after special counsel Henry Kerner said, she blatantly violated the hatch act, which is the law that bars federal employees from engaging in partisan politics, during work congressman just in a mosh. The Michigan Republican who's back the impeachment of Trump was the only member of the GOP to cross party lines and vote for the subpoena tunnel could be held in criminal contempt of congress, if she doesn't appear after this, and the house voted yesterday to include a provision in a twenty four billion dollar appropriations Bill, not the border funding Bill, that advanced, that would bar, the federal government from doing any business with Trump, affiliated establishments at all the Bill passed two hundred twenty four to one Ninety-six largely along party lines. The Senate hasn't. On the corresponding Bill, and the Republican majority. There's very unlikely to agree to include any kind of restriction that would ultimately become law and not to mention Trump would probably veto it, but the amendments still sends a message to the White House at brushes the plate over the propriety of taxpayer funds going to the president's personal businesses, which he owns and has refused to divest and other words taxpayer money going directly to the president's pocket, and that's unlikely to change. And that's the daily to two for Thursday, June twenty-seventh. Thanks for listening. I'm James Holman have a great day. I'll talk to you tomorrow..

You mentioned Professor Siegel about how you don't think that this feels like it will be able to move forward because of the Republican push pushback, but also seemingly their felt like there was pushed back within the White House itself. Two two, two, two, bringing this idea forward seemingly was a surprise to a few people out there. You see in any. There there's there's the Republican agenda for the economy, um, a which is good for the stock market and has been, and to the extent that we, uh, that Trump is of course a Republican president. He's an enabler of the report that part of the Republican Gin. Then there's the Trump agenda that does that differs from the Republican Jan. This is the trade restrictions and the immigrant description restrictions those two parts The market does not like so. You know, now he is moving into the part of his agenda, which did not, uh, synchronize and Correspondent Republican Jenin. He's going to get pushback from the White House. You can get Boop pushback from public. I mean, there's idea you'd on national security. I mean, it sort of ludicrous. Uh, I mean how he can't do a number of things unilaterally, but Congress could step in the way. And as I said, Uh, you. He don't yet one as to who member Here's a president debt. Very proud of the fact that the stock market has done very well over his tenure. Uh, if the market starts taking because of these policies, Um, It doesn't look good and doesn't look good for him, and he might register Well, you know, I mean, would you how far does you want to push ahead unilaterally on this of one of the you know, the accomplishments He's crowing about suddenly falls apart And uh. That would certainly mean be a, a huge negative because whatever Don't forget what, whatever positive as in the polls is due partly to the good market And, and, and the continuation of a good economy that has really, you know, snow started since we started the recovery from the great recession. So that's a continuation on that need doesn't want one of the legs of his of his support too, to fall out from, from under him. So you know, he may be much more. We'll see you. We may be made me much more responsive to the blow back from the Republicans and, and people Cohen up about, Hey, you're taking the markka we thought you were pro-market. Uh, then, um. That would cause them to be far more cautious, Matt. Well, um, first of all, um, this move is an attempt to help the stealing into Lewis sectors at the expense of every other sector. Um, supporting us inside the White House, uh, is Wilbur Ross, the Secretary of Commerce, who made his fortune in the steel sector, um, US trade representative, Bob, White highest there, uh, who has a significant, How do significant numbers steel and aluminum clients we practiced law, um, uh, for decades and might to be planning to go back to that practice after he's US Trade Representative with those clients. Uh, and Peter Navarro Navarro an economist, which who is considered, um, shall we say an outline ever caught him missed and who certainly has always told Trump what he wanted to hear. Everyone else in the White House strongly oppose this. Everyone almost everyone in Congress begged him not to do it. Um, and during the week. Uh, you know, I think in the course of the year He hasn't he struggled with the decision, but a over what happened was Congress the Commerce Department, finished its. Investigation, which had to happen before you have the power to impose these duties. He's in a month period where now he has to make the decision. And according to the Washington Post Yet had an emotional meltdown last week, because hope Hicks, um, spoke to Robert Muller and answered some of his questions and then resigned. Uh, and he trusted Hotek said very much as a close friend and confidante and he had an emotional meltdown. Uh, when he sense that he she betrayed him in. This may well have been Donald Trump literally acting out. I mean, he does. He does have a a great deal of the motion little baggage him And we're looking at something was very, very serious implications that is supported by two people the conflicts of interest. Someone else who's, uh, who's economics or outlying your best. Uh, and and Donald Trump's emotional baggage. I mean, this is very serious situation and very serious manifestation of the problem of having someone. Uh, like Mr Trump in the White House. And it also seems now they with uh, some of the comments he is put out on Twitter too. Day that he is also linking this back to the NAFTA negotiations as well, Matt. Well, yeah, he's food cancer is the biggest exporter of steel end of aluminum to the United States. Um, and this is not directly connected to NAFTA uh, because this type of duty is not easy duty that gets impose, whether or not you of a free trade agreement with the, um, the country That's exporting goods to the United States only ordinary customs duties again, a limited by free trade agreements, not those special duties, like the idea that we do this kind of going duties. Are these national security duties? But the fact is, is that the Canadians are are beside themselves for reasons that are not surprising. Um, you not to negotiations frankly. Um, you know, we're we're struggling Anyway. They wish they they were going to achieve a, a series of very small gains and nothing else and probably going to be put off for a year for the Mexican elections in the US matures before being completed in now with this. Um, uh, I, you know, who knows what's going to happen that the idea of uh, and I saw this a couple of articles re. Salih mats, the idea of targeted tariff specifically at China, would that have been may be a better option. Uh, we've not available under under international trading rules. Um, you know, there's two different sets of law here. You, at statute remembered. The constitution gives the Congress, the power to impose a trade barriers. Congress delegates the power to the, to the executive branch and very to find situations. And under the US statute, you gotta do this investigation show. We had a national security needs. Uh, and now he has a statutory authority to do it. But under the international law obligations under the World Trade Organization to Canada, Mexico, and two hundred sixty three total other countries. Uh, we have obligations that that prevent us from just import is posing these types of duties. Unless we reach the national security criteria of the international law, which is much tougher, and we don't reach that requires that we be in time of war or any emergency in international relations. We don't have that. So the long in the short of it, Uh, is that he's violating the international law. But, um, you know, uh, under the US statue in this situation you had to have.
