Just short of endorsing a union but throwing his support behind workers. Right to try the choice to join. A union is up to the workers for stop. Full stop now. Biden's long fancied himself a friend of organized labor remember his campaign promise to be the most pro union president. You've ever seen until last night. Though he'd been staying away from efforts to organize amazon's workers at a facility in alabama. Now it looks like biden's making good on that campaign pledge. The second story were watching. Dims are dumping their plan. B for a fifteen dollar minimum wage. The washington post scoops that to progressive bigwigs bernie sanders and ron wyden are dropping their push to slap tax penalties on corporations that pay their employees to little basically. The idea was too complex to flush out on such a short deadline. Remember chuck schumer promised the one point nine trillion dollar covid relief. Bill will pass by march fourteenth. That's when unemployment benefits expire in. The ball is in the senate's court after the house passed the package over the weekend. The pressure on the senate to get it passed is even stronger.

That senator is maine. Republican susan collins. Remember the one who wants tweeted is the worst. Yep it seems. Collins hasn't forgotten about that she told playbook dot tannin's moved to scrub some one thousand tweets from her account before her nomination raises concerns about her commitment to transparency. She also said tendons past actions demonstrate quote. Exactly the kind of animosity that president biden has pledged to transcend now. A no vote from collins could mean big trouble for joe. Playbook co author ryan. Liza breaks down why this may be a death. Blow to tendons domination. On friday senator joe manchin democrat of west. Virginia came out against tandon. That left the white house scrambling to find a single republican to back her assuming she can maintain support from the remaining forty nine members of the senate democratic caucus collins is close to mansion who endorsed her twenty twenty reelection and worked with her to pass the most recent code relief. Bill mansion has also entertained collins and other moderates on his houseboat called almost heaven which is docked on the potomac. There tight tending would be the first woman of color to run in be and some high profile members of prominent women's groups attacked mansions decision last friday collins. Opposition could soften those criticisms tendons best. Hope now for confirmation lies with finding support from mitt romney. Republican of utah. Lisa murkowski republican alaska. There two reasons why they might step forward. Ten is close to white house. Chief of staff ron clean and her defeat will be seen not just as a defeat for biden that has personal rebuke to clean if biden incline. Wanna go all out to save her. They could perhaps offer romney murkowski or less likely another republican something in return but the other reason for romney or mcculskey to swoop in and save handan has to do with the internal dynamics of the fifty fifty senate where there is a budding competition among centrists for privacy if tandon is defeated mansion will be credited for it as several senate sources noted to us last night a true power move now would before republican moderate like romney or murkowski to back tandon as a way to diminish mansions emerging role as the alpha centrist.

ABC is Jonathan Karl tells us what a GOP heavy hitter just said. Nikki Haley is not only a former top official in the Trump administration, somebody who has been very close to Donald Trump rarely criticized him, is considered a leading contender for the Republican presidential nomination, she said in an interview, just published. In politico, she said. Trump let us down. He went down a path we shouldn't have, and we shouldn't have followed him. That's a decisive break Donald Trump from somebody who was considered quite close to Donald Trump. That is significant, but it doesn't mean he will be in peach or convicted. I should say they need 17 Senate Republicans to go along with all 50 Democrats, and right now, the dims Are not ruling out, invoking the 14th amendment to keep former President Trump from ever holding office again.

Impeachment Managers Show New Graphic Security Footage Of Capitol Riot

"Note as the video begins. We are seeing the inside view as the mob approaches from outside and beats the windows. Endorse the images were riveting. Some senators leaned forward to get a better look identifying themselves in graphic videos of legislators sprinting down capitol hallways and members narrowly escaping out. Back doors. others looked away. One senator was so shaken that he appeared to tear up. That was the scene on wednesday as house. Impeachment managers kicked off their case against former president. Donald trump by making senators relive their worst nightmare. The january sixth insurrection at the very place they were sitting the. Us capitol waves were made when this never before seen footage was presented officer. Goodman passes senator mitt romney and direct him to turn around in order to get to safety on the first floor. Just be meet them. The mob had already started to search for the senate chamber minutes. After seeing that video mitt. Romney told reporters quote that was overwhelmingly distressing and emotional politically speaking. No one appears to be struggling more with the trial. Then bill cassidy who switched his vote. Tuesday declaring the impeachment trial as constitutional on wednesday the louisiana republican spent most of his time either furiously taking notes or pacing in the back of the room occasionally letting allowed size slip and when house impeachment managers played that video. He was seen shaking his head often and crossing his arms clearly disturbed by the footage. Later that night he told the press pool quote. I'm here to uphold the constitution. i'm upholding it. i'm doing. My job was his reaction surprising. Our own burgess everett reports. Not really he writes. That's par for the course for cassidy who's made a reputation. As an outlier. He's not a trump loyalist. Like lindsey graham or rand. Paul now cassidy is torn between what many of his constituents want critics everett notes have dumped him quote psycho bill and what he feels is his duty and the white house breaks its silence on the impeachment. Trial finally a word from camp biden until now biden and his senior advisors have avoided commenting on trial but cedric richmond. The president's senior adviser told the new york times yesterday that cassidy's vote to declare the trial. Constitutional was a quote profile in courage. Remember richmond is the same guy who famously said of cassidy. Quote dude is weird. Oh how the tables have turned because richmond is now adjusting his opinion telling the times. That cassidy has quote always been independent. A little insight into why biden is keeping his lips. Shut on you know one of the biggest stories in the nation right now. The associated press reports that white house. Aides say that behind closed doors weighing in on the trial would be a lose lose for biden that. Ap story says biden's aides think throwing his hat in the ring would just draw the focus away from trump's alleged misconduct and onto biden's own views but that strategy could change because the reports that no one is expecting biden silence to last forever especially if there is an acquittal a move that could push trump back into the spotlight and on cable interviews and inflame the country deeper.

In Biden’s White House, surprise visits with staff replace late-night tweets

"Us now is anita kumar. White house correspondent and associate editor at politico. Thanks for joining us. Anita thanks for having me. I always like these stories. A little peek into the white house the governing styles behind the scenes president. Joe biden has been in there a couple of weeks now and we're seeing how he's operating in there. We're hearing that. He likes to stroll around the white house in the east wing. He pops into other people's offices he's a very much an extrovert. A people person wants to talk to people face to face the pandemic kind of puts a little crunch on some of that sometimes. But tell us how it's going so far in a kind of in contrast to the way president trump operated in there. Yeah well you're exactly right about that. I mean he has been known his whole life. I think for being an extrovert very outgoing and wants to see people talk to people in and as you mentioned that really hard during corona virus. So he's not getting out of the white house very often. He's not traveling. The country like we might expect during non cova time so what we are. Seeing is him strolling around the white house popping into different offices just to say hello and checking with staff or for particular occasion or particular meeting. We are seeing him doing a good number of some of the meetings he would be doing anyway with outside experts but he those by video instead of you know by phone so he can see those people even if he can't be in the same room with them so we're seeing a lot of that you know you asked about donald trump. I think donald trump also like to talk to people and see people and be seen and so there's a little bit of a similarity beyond that. Their style is completely different about how they get information and talk to people and try to make those decisions. I mean obviously. Joe biden a politician for many many years. He's definitely more of that. Traditional style president trump a businessman. So he kind of has that fast moving pace but even the way their time is structured and access to them is different. Joe biden has a very strict schedule of phone calls that that are scheduled for him. You know people that control access to the oval office and it was a little different for president trump. There was a lot more people that he welcomed in and out of the office. He'll wideness taking much more traditional way to govern but this is sort of how he's done things so you know he will have a set list of calls to make that his staff will set up for him. He will have scheduled meetings. We know that he's doing a national intelligence briefing every day. He's also getting corona virus update every single day those. Are you know from staffers. But how he makes the decision is he'll get You know sort of briefing paper. He likes to read something but he doesn't want it to be hugely long. President obama like to read a lot. He he he'll be all there and he wanted to read sometimes after he read. He didn't wanna talk about it. 'cause he'd already read it he he knew what it said president biden. He likes to read it. You want something concise. And then he wants to talk about it. He wants to talk about it with his aides. And then he wants to talk to these outside experts which could be someone that deals with the policy but it could also be a local official or a state official. So he's having those kinds of calls and meeting with his aides and making decisions that way you know. President trump really didn't like to have those briefing papers. He didn't want to read something. He would sort of famously have his aides debate an issue right in front of him. He wanted them to kind of go out a little bit so the style is very different but something that joe biden has brought from you know he's decades in public life. Before

Axios CEO Jim VandeHei On Media Post-Trump

"A lot can happen in four years for years ago. Donald trump was being sworn in as our forty fifth president and also four years ago. Axios was founded and delighted to have jim van high co founder and. Ceo of axios with me here today. Great to be here. So and congratulations on your four year anniversary. Thank you we we started. We actually moved up our launch because we interview with donald trump so our first term matched up with his first term. We can leave it all of you to decide what better i show while. I wanna talk about the future of media in the airhead recording this the day after biden's inauguration actually has grown up under the trump presidency in our in this completely new political moment with the biden administration coming out of the first day of the new regime. What are you paying attention to. Yeah i mean we at axios. We cover a broad range of topics so politics technology media business and in the political sphere. Obviously we're spending a lot of time. Thinking about how joe biden the presidency will unfold but also how it will unfold in this kind of wild and wacky media environment where you've got you know roughly half the country that doesn't trust anything that the mainstream media produces and you have this rise in the number of people who believe things that aren't true and i don't think we've ever been here's a country where we've been the last couple years. We just have so much distrust in so much misinformation and so much propaganda in so much of a taking root with people that you and i would say other serious smart people and yet they don't believe the same things that we believe even if a to us they're fact base and that's a huge problem in that environment is going to be surrounding joe biden. And you can't extract politics or biden from media swish together. I think you make a big mistake if you try to understand politics without having a pretty good appreciation of modern media yeah in trump is leaving this legacy of distrust of the media and hatred of the media which he's kind of been able to spread to a broader set of followers. What do you think the long term effects of that negativity toward media will be. I mean i think it's to be determined. I think it's gonna take a long time to repair what is broken. When you have this many people you have a maybe half the country. It's deeply skeptical of media in general and kind of what we would define this truth. It makes it almost impossible to be a functioning society in that environment and i think for the incumbent brands. It's going to be really hard to win back. The trust the people who distrust or mistrust them now i think it creates new opportunities for companies like axios or companies at mina merge over the next couple of years ought to be able to maybe kindle rekindle a relationship with people who were skeptical of things about around for a long time. But it's a problem that has to be solved if we end up essentially de-coupling and what i mean by that is if we have half the country living in at different bubbles where it's not just the media you're consuming but it's the platforms that you're going on to share debate and think about The news that you're consuming. I really worry about that. Consensus essentially it. Truly is to america's it's not just sort of generically saying to america's like we would have to america's and we have to solve for that and we have to solve that while also figuring out how do we put rules around that big tech platforms that allow for people have freedom of speech but also be able to navigate the world without Mistrust in propaganda and nonsense in noise pulsing through the devices in the platforms. They're spending the vast majority of their time on and exit at axios takes a pretty a political approach which that feels like a good stance to take coming into the next four years and through what happened. In the trump administration was that something that you foresaw or in kind of taking a more neutral stance or was that something that you just kind of. We're going to do anyway and all of a sudden maybe you're seeing some positive effects yet. No we'd always planned being that way in. Our view is that world is anymore. Noise what the world needs is more clinical fact based reporting done by people who have expertise so that you can get people who might be skeptical of media to believe in beedi again and for people to stay better information to make better decisions and that's why we started. Axios is our thesis. The thesis was correct. Was people almost everyone. We knew their minds were just jammed and crammed with information and they had less time to actually think about information at a time where all of us need to know a lot more across more topics. It's really hard to do my job. Unity your job if you don't really understand politics or technology or social platforms or media or some business trends. Let's a lot. It's a lot to ask of you and ask of me and so if you can't bring more efficiency to that process if you can't bring more clarity to the information that people are consuming it's just gonna get too difficult for the end user the consumer And so even though i mean are even as i think. A lot of people are appreciating this kind of super brief approach to news. People are consuming so much news. I feel like in the past few years because there's just so much going on with trump and then out of course that the pandemic there's this idea of the trump bump that's driven a lot of subscriptions in really helps a lot of media publications at the same time that trump has kind of led to some of these negative effects that sustain. What do you think happens to. Some of the media publications that have benefited. Most from the trump bump my assumption was that the trump bump which fade people would stop paying so much attention to politics but just had so much craziness the corona virus. Getting worse. Not getting better. Obviously the mob at the capital still persistent fear that there could be more violence as a result of the election results. So we're not seeing that decrease yet though. I assume the decrease will come to be honest. I think it'd be really healthy for all of us. If if traffic to political coverage decrease tremendously. I honestly it might sound weird because people create create a politico and we obviously do a fair amount of political coverage here. But i think people gone nuts. I think people are consuming. Wait way way too much political content. I see in our traffic patterns. I see in my own family. We as a species were not meant to spend this much time thinking about talking about debating sharing opining on politics. It's not healthy. I always compare it to a doritos. Like into real nice. I love him in like if you have one once in a while. It's good but if you eat two or three bags at day you're going to be a fat slob and you're not going to be healthy and i worry that that's what we're all doing with politics is driving people crazy and i think the world would be better place if we all got a life outside of our phone and our and our websites

‘Packed us together like sardines’: Guard deployed to Capitol struggles to contain Covid

"Much concern on wednesday at the us capitol in washington dc. That there might be some sort of interruptions or violence. At the inauguration of joe biden. Thanks to what happened two weeks earlier with the mob that stormed the capital so they brought in tens of thousands of national guardsmen to protect the place. The reason we're talking about it now. Is that this story which began on politico. Concerning a number of national guardsmen some of whom were claiming the congress members threw them out of the capitol. They get nowhere to go so the ended up sleeping on the floor of a parking garage with one bathroom to share and the update. This afternoon. That you may have been hearing. is that a number of guardsmen have tested positive for corona virus. Perhaps one hundred or more sure you put twenty five thousand people in an enclosed space. What do you think's gonna happen. All you need is one guy with the virus. Is you saw the way they were laid out. Like like logs of wood. You saw that photo relying lying on the capital floor sleeping together. Yeah it was. it was sardine-packing. So if there's one guy breathing out his viral load all night Yeah you could end up sucking it in your all. Suck it in your all lying there sleeping sucking in his viral load. Well the update this afternoon for everybody. Hundreds of these national guard members apparently are allowed to return indoors according to defense officials. There seems to be a dispute as to who told them they couldn't stay in the capital anymore. Of course it's the problem is they are given hotel rooms but it says here. They're on duty for a day or two working shifts a few hours at a time. It takes too long to get back to their hotels. Many of which are in. Virginia and maryland so they just nap wherever they can between shifts. You see wondered right away. Weren't they giving a place to actually bunk. And the congressmen. Don't care you know they. They like to They like to virtue signal about how grateful they are for the national service that the guardsmen did to protect democracy and to protect our national monuments and protect the transfer of power. And all that stuff but when it was over they were just used as props. It was thinner.

National Guardsmen were told to vacate the Capitol grounds by the U. S. Capitol Police one group, which had been resting in a Senate office building, telling Politico, they were forced to relocate to a nearby parking garage with only one bathroom in two stalls for 5000 troops. Not to mention this is drawing bipartisan outrage from lawmakers. Democrats Senator from Connecticut, Chris Murphy tweeting unacceptable numerous senators working to fix this as we speak. I just got off the phone with the acting Capitol police chief who insists there was no general quest for the guard to vacate the building. But whatever happened there, working to fix a problem now? And those troops were invited back out of that parking garage late last night and were given accommodations at the Capitol.

Those two nations styles have been consistent with that on display in past campaigns. Russian disinformation has been negative and disruptive concentrating on producing red meat conspiracy theories about the capitol hill riot. Chinese disinformation has been characteristically positive. That is not positive in the sense of or optimistic but positive in the sense of persuading its international audience of a particular position more accurately two positions.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy

"Today is Martin Luther King Day a day when we look back on Dr King's commitment to nonviolent civil disobedience to advance civil rights and reflect on his famous 1963 speech delivered here in D, C. I have a dream. A little Children. One day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin. But by the content of their character, I agree. Following last year's death of a black man, George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer and this month's deadly attack on the U. S Capitol by supporters of President Trump include including far right extremists. Is Dr King's dream still alive? Well, joining us now to talk about that Maya King with politico who covers politics, race and campaigns. My It's always good to talk to you. Thank you so much for joining us today. Hi. Thanks for having me. What might Dr King think of the protests going on today? How far have we really come on racial issues as we mark his birthday. I think it's king were alive today he would be able to draw a number of parallels between his time in his experience and activism and what we've seen really over the past 12 months, with massive protests and civil disobedience, calling out Systemic racism and police violence on But of course, the current threat that we face of violence largely led by white supremacist groups, who have felt largely emboldened by a number of Government leaders of these are things that Martin Luther King also warned us against, and said that you know if America really did continue to try to advance on the platform or legacy of racism and racial terror. That that could cause issues for more than just racial minorities. But the broader community that we see across this country and I think that's especially evident, of course, looking at just how tight security is around Wednesday's inauguration.

COVID-19 vaccine distribution faces logistical challenges

"Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew mullah my guests today sarah wheaton and dr arthur caplan sarah wheaton chief policy correspondent for politico europe. She joins us from brussels. And autho kaplan is professor of bioethics at new york. University's school of medicine. He joins us from the woods of connecticut. This first part of the show. I want to talk more domestically about what. The responsibilities and duties and possibilities are in terms of vaccinations and how domestic governments go about organizing them the second part of the show. We'll talk more about the global picture. But sarah i'll start with you not withstanding the united kingdom which is actually proceeding with the vaccinations at a reasonably impressive clip. The non uk european countries. Actually being too slow by half they'd seemed to have got off to a very sluggish. Start indeed and it's causing quite a bit of domestic problems around the block and as well it's also calling into question european union's unity in fact. There's a huge blame. Brussels faction basically saying that the eu was too slow to buy doses compared to the united states and the united kingdom on the other hand. You also see that many countries including germany. Which has been one of the most vocal in criticizing. Brussels is not doing a very good job of getting the doses out that they have. is it. just a question of polaroid if you will if we focus on one specific example you look at a country like the netherlands which would appear to have every imaginable advantage. Where doing something like. This is concerned. It is geographically tiny eddies rich. It is well organized you would think vaccinating. The netherlands would be relatively straightforward. Is these things go and yet one. They have barely started and to the government has picked this moment to resign on mass over. Something else entirely right. I think it's really fascinating if you look at the databases that lay out. How countries have been doing with their vaccination. There are some things that show number of doses administered per one hundred. And there's not an obvious pattern so again sort of make sense that you can. Denmark are doing very well but then you have italy. You have spain. You have slovenia and lithuania in the top ten whereas you have big wealthy countries like germany and france and the netherlands as you mentioned doing quite poorly and each country is a precious snowflake with a health system and the value said that really drive this so one of the factors in the netherlands. The case in many countries is at one point. It looked like the astra zeneca vaccine was the front runner that was both the cheapest and the most logistically simple. It doesn't need kind of special freezing transportation so i think the netherlands was a country where they were more banking on that particular shot being the one that was available so they didn't think as much about how they were going to be doing the logistics for a more complicated marnie vaccine in germany. They say actually part of the issue is that germany has many different health insurance systems. And so the data about who actually qualifies for this vaccine is not consistently available whereas in countries like spain and italy. You may be due in certainly in the united kingdom where you have the national health service you have various centralized data system author another thing that countries have had a long time to think about is the order in which they roll the vaccines out. Obviously who gets it i. You can't vaccinate everybody the same week. Does it strike you that. There's much in the way of interesting or indicative divergence in in who is prioritizing. What here in the uk of call us where credit where it's due to the government as we were saying they're doing quite well. They started out with old people. Care homes people with chronic illnesses which might make them more vulnerable. Is that the smart thing to do. I wonder myself with a more thought. Should be given to vaccinating. People like retail workers bus drivers refuse collectors. Delivery people the ones who have to interact with the public and the ones without whom society really would grind to a halt. Yes well we spent an announcement of time in the us arguing over who should go first. Who should go second new should go third lots of categories federal advice flying around about prioritization. But we learned a couple of things once. The vaccine went to the states. They all decided their own priorities. So in some parts of the us prisons and prison staff are being vaccinated in other states. The governors have said no. We're not doing that because they don't like prisoners basically even though that's a high risk population and could be a place where the virus easily spreads back to the community. I've talked to a lot of people who run group homes for intellectually disabled people in nursing homes or care homes but out in the community. They're getting no supply they got forgotten. So i'm lis- despite lots and lots of arguing if you had a clientele of down syndrome individuals. Their death rates are six seven eight times as high as everybody else but somehow the prioritization list so we did spend a lot of time arguing but now we have fifty states with fifty different policies. We've seen a little cheating as a result because when you don't have consistency people start to say that. I'm not gonna follow the rules. So we have people who are rich. Flying to florida to get in line to get vaccinated. Florida per usual doesn't seem to care exactly who's supposed to be a priority. The lord help us to even vaccinating canadians. Their her down there snowbirds so that's causing tension among the locals. But here's the take on less than than i learned. It's great to have these arguments. About who goes i. If your logistics don't work it doesn't matter what your list is if you can't get supply out to the meat packers of the delivery. People are wherever if what we do. Is we send the supply to hospitals and nursing homes or care homes as we've done here that's where the vaccinations occur and those institutions will just vaccinate their employees high risk. Or not is. That's where the refrigerator is. As sarah said it's hard to handle stuff. They're not gonna go running down the street looking for the next category person to give it to so logistics as much as ethics or laying out priority groups drives distribution
