"We do whatever we want. And they don't realize that they're governing an intensely divided country and that some of their some of their pushing and my way or my way attitude could actually deepen our crisis by a sort of leading to more norm. Breaking joe biden. Says he wants to heal. But if that's his strategy toward unity and bipartisanship. I guess what i'm trying to say is. He may be in for a rude awakening. Kim if he now to apply that strategy to a you know just to pick a number out of a hat a one trillion or a trillion dollar infrastructure deal that includes Five hundred thousand green electric car charging stations across the country and finishing california's high speed rail project. I mean the ad that seems very unlikely that he would get the kind of unity that he is talking about now in the same way and that's just accepting his claim that he has that unity You can look at plenty of polls suggest that he might have had some support among some republicans for a covid nineteen. Bill that gives money to everyone. Enhance it out. Pretty much to everyone in the country but that doesn't translate into support for his pacific policy agenda. Which is now what we now move to So you're right. Look we keep talking. About how joe biden says. He's not going to make the mistakes of the obama years And that but they have taken the wrong lessons from the obama years. They seem to think they have to go. Bigger and bolder and faster and with less republican. Buying the real lesson of the obama years Was pass through a jam through an obamacare bell with no republican support and stimulus along the same lines. That's a lot of money that also has a lot of provisions that could come back to bite you And you generally look as though you are not trying to cooperate. All with the other side simply mandate a very aggressive agenda on the country. There's a backlash and that's what democrats got in two thousand. Ten and i would note democrats back then had far greater margins and congress than they do now. They can't really afford to lose many seats or they lose control weirdly perversely. This is what is causing many progressives to argue for them to go faster and bigger because they're worried about losing that hold of control. I would argue that. That's exactly the kind of strategy that could lose it for them but that also brings us back to point a moment ago which is the filibuster and what the president intends to do with the filibuster if he can't get ten republican votes for this big infrastructure climate bill and this was another notable moment in the the the press conference on thursday. Here's the question regarding the filibuster at john. Lewis funeral president. Brock obama said he believed the filibuster was a relic of the jim crow era. Do you agree and president biden says yes and the follow up question. Jason is and if not why abolish or excuse me if not why not abolish it jim. Crow era and biden says successful. Electoral politics is the art of the possible. But that doesn't that doesn't really answer the question and also the the next follow up question should have been You know why what change what changed between now in two thousand five when you were using the filibuster president biden and also standing up and giving speeches in strong defense of the filibuster as a procedural protection yen. It's not just joe biden. it's you know. Two dozen democratic senators or more signed a letter when republicans just three years ago controlled both houses of congress and the presidency..

Welcome back to xia today. Happy to be back. Thank you for having me car. Thank many people know about the internment camps of world war two. But can you share with us. Three other important moments when it comes to asian americans american history seven years before the eighteen eighty two chinese exclusion act. You had the eighteen. Seventy five act. This was an act that specifically targeted and restricted banned the entry of asian women from entering the united states they were portrayed as prostitutes and therefore needing regulation now the real reason why many of them were coming over is to join the men that were here working on the railroad working in minds but that that didn't matter the page act is that first national act by nineteen thousand nine hundred seventeen. What you had was as constantly expanding definition of who is excluded from coming to united states so nine hundred seventeen you had the creation of the so called as the attic barred zone and it was fairly arbitrary. The exclusion started in korea and china. Japan was not an area of exclusion. Because we wanted to maintain good diplomatic relations. So we had what was called a gentlemen's agreement with japan. That was passed in one thousand nine hundred seven that essentially meant that japan would discourage people from emigrating to the united states but there was not an outright ban on japan yet that would happen in nineteen twenty four so that's really important in that second period to pay attention to the third period. I'd like to flag in many ways. That it previews.

"I'm jeffrey rosen. Presidency o of the national constitution center and welcome to we the people a weekly show of constitutional debate. The national constitution center is a nonpartisan. Nonprofit chartered by congress to increase awareness and understanding of the constitution among the american people. President biden assigned twenty-eight executive orders in his first two weeks office by contrast franklin delano roosevelt who previously held. The record signed thirty in his first month. On today's episode we will discuss president biden's executive orders and potential legal challenges to them and then we'll dive into a broader conversation about presidential power with two of america's leading experts on the subject. Michael mcconnell is richard and francis mallory professor and director of the constitutional law center at stanford law school and a senior fellow at the hoover institution. He previously served as a judge on. The court of appeals for the tenth circuit. And he's the author of the new book the president who would not be king executive power under the constitution. Michael thank you so much for joining. Thank you jeff and christina. Rodriguez is the laden homer sir. Back professor of law yale law school. She is co author with adam cox of the president and immigration law. She previously served as deputy assistant attorney. General in the office of legal counsel at the us department of justice during the obama administration. Christina is wonderful to have you back on the show. thanks for having me. Just michael remind us. An executive order is where a president's power to issue it comes from and then talk about the kind of substantive orders that president biden is issuing many of them reverse orders by president trump. They relate to the census immigration to ethics to regulation in many other topics. How much will these orders actually achieve. You have to look at them one at a time. Some of them are exercising. Direct power that the president himself has either under the constitution or more frequently under a statute and in that case The executive order actually does have immediate consequence so for example President biden has put the united states back into the world health organization. That has his authority to do As under the foreign affairs powers of the of the united states and in some cases he's not doing some things so he One of my favorite my personal one. That i most appreciate and i'm not being ironic is is a his reversal of president. Trump's emergency or i having to do with the border under which president trump declared an emergency so that he could spend funds that were not appropriate for the purposes of the wall on the wall. What i would consider to be a real end. Run around the appropriations paul up the appropropriations power of congress will biden reverse that and that has actually that has immediate legal effect other things that That he does a really have no legal effect of for example putting us back into the paris accord gets lots of applause in some quarters. But it doesn't actually do anything around the world. The paris accord is considered to be a treaty and But in the in the united states the president can't enter a treaty it has to be ratified by the senate. And that's by a two thirds vote and that's not going to happen and so just to put his signature on the paris. Essentially does on nothing In terms of american policy. It's it's a it's a feel good statement of Of you know biden telling us as hard as with climate movement. it doesn't actually accomplish thing christina. Michael reminds us that different executive orders have different legal effect depending on the authority under which there issued into reading which they're supported by congressional statute or other authorities. Cnn's list of the executive order. Executive orders includes the following topics immigration. Health care the environment equity corona virus regulation those the big ones. Perhaps you could highlight some of the most significant of these orders. I guess i'll ask you about immigration which is feel that you've written about and our leading expert. Those orders. Run the gamut from things that have media consulates to those that are going to require a long-term work by the agencies that he is directing so in addition to the the border wall That the underlying emergency for which is now been declared not emergency. The president hand rescind difficult to twelve f workers orders excluded citizens or nationals from jordi a muslim countries so called travel ban or muslim ban and series of orders using the same power restricting legal.

I don't know The buddy's still at it and yesterday he was signing executive orders related to immigration policy in the us and joining us now with details boxes. Rachel sutherland good morning. Rachel take morning. Yeah there were three actions that were signed late yesterday. Two of them just create a review process of some trump era policies on immigration. One sets up a task force designed to reunite families separated. The southern border doesn't seem like many people have problem with that in fact Senator john kennedy was on the channel last night. Fox news channel saying he agrees at that point. He is taking issue with the reviews of these policies. One of the policies would require asylum seekers to remain in mexico as they await hearings. You'll probably also remember the public charge rule which basically said if immigration authorities had reason to believe the phone might rely on government assistance. They could be denied a green card. So both of these policies still in effect. They're just under review. It's the first step to maybe eliminating them and the president finds itself between a rock and a hard place when it comes to these kinds of policies. If he's trying to walk a middle road and immigration that's gonna be tough so get it from both sides and the conservatives who are worried about open borders and then progressives who are saying that these orders yesterday toko far enough as we know. He's come under criticism for designing a flood of executive orders is expected to sign more today or is it going to slow down the stop eventually. Yeah there's nothing on the public schedule.

That's not unusual. it is a covered the white house. I have not had an opportunity to ask a question yet. But i plan to. It is not unusual at all.

We have to be able to respond to the points you're making and we don't know what questions were going to ask until we hear you say something well. Yeah that's that's that's a conversation. And i totally with you on that one in badgen also with when journal in the white house press briefing room. They asked the question then they can do a follow up question that one. I don't have any knowledge would be planting kind of way but as a journalist. If i'm when i'm sitting in there i certainly want to know if i'm going to be cold on i don't hey or he'll fox's radio what you got. I'm gonna have a list of questions is good That's embarrassing. But no i understand the concern And i can see the point that That people are making that it needs to be unscripted and people will be able to ask any questions that they want. I'm on board with that too right. You just don't want you. Don't want the press secretary to not call upon you because she doesn't like your question that's right. I wouldn't like that either so there. It cuts both ways. It's interesting that you bring this up. Because i do find this topic fascinating And look forward to ask me my question. Maybe in the near future but Yeah and But i i certainly want to be able to have any question. I want you know out there but at the same time you know it allows both sides to prepare. But that's the way this the nice rations doing things and try to get into. And it's not only out every administration a little bit different. Okay thanks rachel.

"president biden" Discussed on KILF Morning New Podcast
"Eight seventeen has been less than two weeks in president violence of the oval office in washington. And boy he shouldn't be busy signing a lot of executive orders you notice. Sometimes he signs with his right hand and sometimes he signs with his left hand. I guess he must be ambidextrous. Well that's we are no. I never noticed. I never noticed that. All he's there is sitting there in the oval office every time we see him now just solving all the problems in the world with his mighty pen joining us now to talk about that and other matters of the new administration and the new world into which we have entered one of our favorites former. Uta political science professor always brightest man. In the room. Allan saxe good morning. Allan thank you. You make me look good. I don't think president biden even knows what signing all right non don. I'm i'm very curious. Somebody said that they heard him say very softly under his breath to somebody in the room. What am i signing. No and i believe that he seems to me. Like a met A mannequin and he just up there and somebody's telling them what to do what i do now. I miss joe. You know say this show i saw. Who do you think is really behind it all then. I think it's somebody probably in president obama's administration over where somebody likes that will never know. Maybe a history teacher may if they do a definitive view of the biden presidency. And i don't know if we're liberal come out. Who really is the president of the united states. So my furious if they conspiracy theory and i can't prove it at all. I think we elected somebody that's a mannequin. It's just a manic. Wouldn't even know who we elected. Let me Let me ask you about Executive orders this is something. A lot of people have been critical of for years now. Regardless of who's in office should the president of the united states be able to manipulate policy in the country. Personally does he have the should he have that kind of power absolutely not whether he was prison trump biden this is a legislative function and to show you how strange it is of course as you well know Prison biden comes in and dues many of president trump's executive orders with a stroke of a pen so we have one executive order one minute and twenty four hours later. We're twenty four minutes later. We have another one just by executive orders and some of these very important Who can travel to the united states. who can come in west. Leave those reporting kinds of things. What are your thoughts on the impeachment trial. That's going to get underway in the senate. Do you think They will convict the president. He's not going to. he's not going to be convicted. And it's probably and positition touch. There's one part of the fourteenth amendment that says that he may be unqualified. Don't hold offices that was a civil war amendment and I doubt if the that'll be applicable. Anyway that's really what they wanna give. They wanna make sure he does. Not run for an appeals because there still is tremendous amount of popularity so what they really want. They want exclude him from all future elections. But he's not going to happen. He's not going to be impeached. It's a waste of time but will see today and probably some television show is speaker pelosi on a silva pillow carrying the impeachment articles in the senate chambers and she'll look really war or and will come a whole bunch of people thought down the hallway and she has an impeachment article on the silver pillow. I think what's going to happen. It'll look really official and means nothing. What about the impeachment. Now it's a it's starting to seem like it's just a a political weapon and we're going to see this We're going to see this every every new administration right. Somebody's gonna file articles of impeachment and This is probably not at all. what the what. The founders had in mind. You're exactly correct. in fact. An article impeachment has already been filed by some body against president. Biden is not going anywhere in was one person who did it. But who absolutely right is going. Become a gimmick. I just a publicity gimmick and has no relevance of what happened president Trump Do not call for insurrection. People can argue about that for a long time but what words meant that. They're claiming he inspired and insurrection. And he did not do that. This is not the civil war. What the fourteenth amendment is. All about is disqualified people who participate in the american civil war. This is it and if they did and then they've already shown us that they don't like him so leave it alone. he's gone he's in florida and that's and that's it. Leave him alone but they can leave him alone. Nancy keep pulling it here. It is eight hundred you're talking to former. Ut arlington political science professor. Alan saxon alan. We've heard that the president the former keeping calling him the current president of the former president. Maybe considering building another political party but then sources say no. He's not gonna do that. He's just going to work to try to get people and republicans elected in the midterm elections in two thousand and twenty two. That's probably more like it if he does that. It'll be similar to attend adele gin and already part of the twentieth century. It was supposed to political party and elect somebody else in the twentieth century. What teddy roosevelt did is starting. What was called the bull moose party and Roseville guy and again. Hey republican and very colorful very much like president trump. But he didn't work. He was not elected in fact they elected the democrat. Woodrow wilson if my memory serves me correct. So that's what happened. And i think president trump wonder stands that president trump. If you want to stop electing democrats go do this. And i don't think he's going to but on the other hand it could be an argument. May that he disliked republicans as much as the democrats the republican establishment but. I still don't think that's gonna tempt him to start. A third political party called the patriot. Marty it's not gonna work. Ross perot started political party. I think it was called Get there and do what is it. Called the american even remember. There have been several different. Remember we ran. Yeah any carry quite a few that again not enough to win. Her does fragmenting Fragmenting other party all right Final question for you. Think allen i i. I'm curious about the makeup of this The senate now with fifty fifty right down the middle and we call chuck schumer the new majority leader although that is by the thinnest possible definition because the vice president is a democrat. What do you expect from the senate. Now i think they're going to Not vote impeachment. Those they're a two thirds vote of the senate for impeachment have conviction rather to be more explicit. It's not going to happen. He's not going to be convicted. But in five boat kamala. I gotta get her name right or else so accuse you of something. In fact somebody actually mispronounced her name the other day they called her kamala or something like that and she and she doesn't like what he thought it was racist because they mispronounced her name but she can crack cast a tie vote. That is not going to make any difference. They don't have the votes for conviction. And it's not gonna work but there are some strange things that the senate and the house under democratic control wanna do like allow sixteen-year-olds the right to vote. That would require a hostile amendment and be about the worst thing that we can ever have sixteen year old and also allow more mail in ballots. That's just ridiculous but it sounds great. Get more people out to vote Sixty year old mail in ballots. No but that's what they're proposing right allen always a pleasure. Thanks for your thoughts smell. Good talk very much. We'll do it again soon there's Former uta political science. Professor alan sex..

"In los angeles. I'm kai ryssdal. It is wednesday today. The twentieth day of january always have long everybody. There was poetry in washington today. Some pros as well and will play a little bit of what president biden say during his inaugural address but mostly there was a change in tone from four years ago to the new challenges facing this economy and how the biden administration plans to meet them. We've been talking about that since election day and we will talk about it. Some more as i said in the days and weeks to come but on this day one of his administration one of the first things on biden's legislative agenda is immigration. A topic that is political. Yes to be sure. But which is also for us a labor market story the us citizens shebek of twenty twenty. One is set to be on its way congress. Marketplace's eric embarrassed starts us off. This legislation comes after four years of restrictive policies. Cutbacks on the refugee program increased scrutiny on high skilled worker. Bees applications a slowdown in naturalizations labor. Economist david yeager this clearly. Elsie country that the the biden is station intends to head in a different direction. The plans include paths to citizenship for farming essential workers immigrants brought to the us by their parents and those who came fleeing wars all immigrants would have to pass background checks and pay taxes. Stewart anderson is with the national foundation for american policy. I think tank. These individuals would have more bargaining power. It would also help these individuals themselves improve their own ability to educate themselves and invest in their own skills because they know they would be here with certainty. This bill also plans to bolster border security through technology. It also calls for aid to central american countries to address the corruption violence and poverty. That often dr migrants to the us. Julia gillette is an analyst at the migration policy institute she says all of this may strike lawmakers as ambitious such a big broad package as this is likely to struggle in congress.

"One more question about the pageantry here. I mean i have had the span broadcast of the inaugural up on my screen and have spotted president george w bush and president clinton at the swearing in vice president. Pence is there But president trump everyone knows has left town and obviously a peaceful transfer of power doesn't require everybody to get along and trump is not the first president to skip the next guy's In gration but bill. It does seem to me that You lose something that a handshake and a hand off Is a nice piece of this transfer of the democratic liturgy. And i'm missing it this year. Yeah i look. I agree entirely with you. pageantry and These kind of symbolic gestures very important that they reflect the continuity. It's kind of thing that you do on thinking. It's it's kind of like you know in school kyle. I don't know if you've ever broken up by teacher. You know after having a fistfight and then the teacher makes you can with the guy use your glowering at. But it's it's good for people to do that. Look i i I'm not one of the people that is always lecturing. Donald trump on civility. I mean some of the people that give those lectures could use a lesson themselves. But i do think he We lost something. I think he lost something in In not being there for just sucking it up I can understand his anger. I think he was impeached twice over a very recklessly. But i still think that this is why we have those things i mean. Part of the reason is to rise above the acrimony And and it is a loss. And i think it's a loss for the nation because i think it means more people watching this are bitter than they otherwise might have been if president trump had been there. But it's done and we have to live with the consequences. Once president biden finishes with his inaugural address. He has quite a first day plan. Lots of executive orders to sign..

"Hey we're back and before the break. We heard from environmental advocate. Virginia blasio's about the commitments. She's hoping president biden will keep on the issue of climate change and the environment. And now we're gonna turn to immigration. We spoke with college freshman. And the anaya who's from the washington dc area and the is nineteen years old. She's been undocumented since she came to the united states as a five year old with her family. Here's latino usa producer says gotta say with andrea story. You might have read about people like andrea in the news a few weeks ago. She's eligible for dhaka but even though the program has been around for more than eight years. She's only now applying for the first time. That's because as you may know. The trump administration tried to end daca in two thousand seventeen and the program's been batted around the court system. Ever since then then this past december a judge ordered the administration to reinstate daca and start taking locations again andrea was born in el salvador to a single mom. My mom shoes in law school actually When she decided to come to the united states because she just couldn't afford to raise me on her own. You know my entire family recited in maryland so at the age of five we came through plane To america they settled in maryland and some parts of andrea story might sound familiar. If you've been following dreamer movement over the years for example she assimilated very quickly so much like my family members. Tease me like you. Don't even remember your roads. You speak more english than spanish Actress speak more english and spanish now. Most of my memories and culture. That i have this is here. One thing that makes andrea a little unique though is that daca already existed. By the time she realized she was undocumented. She heard about the program before she was even old enough to apply out here. It's a great program for young people had big dreams as i have big dreams. I've always been a very ambitious kid. In a good way frozen. Remember i said our goal to be senator. And i was like i wanna go to college. I want to go to law school. I wanna to be a politician. I wanna make these laws and maybe that came from my mom going to launch from having to drop out so she was waiting till her fifteenth birthday is when she'd be eligible to apply when i got to my first year of high school in the program basically kinda came to a stop sign assab and everything just kind of pause from urology like i might not have a future what happened of course was that the trump administration was trying to end. Daca and house just disappointed. Saad press fellow huge depression Righteous didn't want to do anything. I didn't have to continue school out a really good student. In all of a sudden my grades dropped and i kind of stopped carrying. Because i was like. What's the point of this. She figured that without daca as she wouldn't be able to pay for college she wouldn't be able to get a job. And i fell just heartbroken and at that moment everything changed for me my goals personality. If it wasn't for my friends and teachers at found in me. I probably would have continued so i had a lot of teachers around me that Really good student. And i found a lot of trust them to tell them the situation eventually andrea pulled her grades back up and she found new ways to stay motivated. Although throughout my high school years. It seemed like nothing was going to change. There was that one day it might because the president's only there for four years and i held onto that promise to hope andrea ended up getting a full ride marymount university just outside dc and. She's now working on her daca application but even now daca is still not a sure thing. The program is in court again and a judge could rule that it's illegal so there's still a lot of like holding back emotions just because it's been a rollercoaster this past few years and you just never know so for months under put a ton of time into another strategy that she hoped would help her and other undocumented immigrants. Get a more permanent solution which was to help get an elected. She worked with the organization united. We dream to call thousands and thousands of voters leading up to the election. You know sometimes. You get really happy voters. Sometimes you get people that are like no. I hate immigrants all right louie back so some are better than others for sure it's a it's a very draining job. I say but it was completely worth it. Seeing the election results the reason andrea made all those phone calls is because biden promised on the campaign that he would work with congress to protect dreamers and their families which honestly seemed like a long shot if the democrats didn't win the senate but now with the results of the runoff in georgia. Some longer term solution seems like more of a possibility. So i'm hoping that it's not just doesn't end. What okay we won. We won the presidency in non. Now it's over stick to your promises reinstall daca. You're not only that. But you're going to expand the program to hopefully give a pathway to citizenship because dhaka's is not everything i mean it's a two year no permai where you can work for two years but you've gotta keep applying. That's that's not a solution that's not a way to live and there's eleven million undocumented people in this country that have no solution. I mean i know them as family members. My mom my uncles aunts. And it's it's not fair to them during this country. They're working. They wanna be a part of the society they wanna contribue so we're going to continue pushing for a permanent solution. They're gonna continue our voices. We're gonna continue into the steps. Congress supreme court whatever we have to do so overall. How are you feeling in this moment as there. Is this big change happening in our government. I'm feeling hopeful at think. A see the light at the end of the tunnel. Fact endure these for years of bigotry in these races rhetorics against arrogant communities. The damage has been caused to mental toll. No talks about the mental health of immigrant communities. That's been impacted heavily. So in this moment. I see that we organized and we won and if we continue organizing continue to win and sometimes no good.

"Back in november latina and latino voters helped deliver the presidency to joe biden in key swing states like georgia and especially arizona. Let the next. Voters helped turn former red states. Blue and during the campaign biden made a long list of commitments to our communities on day. One i'm sending to the united states. Congress a immigration bill. We're gonna find those kids. We're going to unite them with their parents. The opening school safely will be a national priority for the biden harris administration. Reverse trump's rollbacks of one hunter public health and environmental rules biden has said he'll invest in education and healthcare for letting us he said he'll stop border wall construction and that he'll work with congress to create a path to citizenship for undocumented people but in also said he'll crackdown pollution in communities of color and reduce incarceration so in the lead up to the inauguration that usa reached out to young denness and latinos around the country to your what promises they're hoping biden will keep and what they want biden to do that he hasn't committed to yet plus we're going to speak with these young people about how the changes they wanna see would actually impact their own lives. We're going to start this very non. Comprehensive survey by speaking with virginia. Blasio's virginia's a ninth generation daytona who up near a city on the texas mexico border were in the south texas. Brush country so a lot of trees and prickly pear cactus virginia is also an environmental science and policy consultant that usa producer. Scarsi spoke with virginia. And she's going to pick up the story from here. Virginia lives in a rural area on a fourth generation. Cattle ranch that been her family of for close to one hundred and twenty years. We inherited it from my great uncle. Who was a grand champion calf roper. During the great depression he traveled the radio circuit with his brother. You know they were fortunate enough to be born into families that had a lot of land and so they were able to run cattle and support their families. That way and my dad was enamored with that history of cowboy culture. He virginia and her brother on the land. She remembers running around as a little kid watching her. Dad moved these huge cows from field to field and she thinks growing up this way set the foundation for a love of nature that eventually led her to go to grad school to study climate change. And that's where she was. When in two thousand eleven he had still all the cattle on the ranch because the drought guy particularly bad and <hes>. There was a national study. That came out shortly after that drought showing bet <hes>. Climate change me the heat waves longer and temperatures more intense that year and so we know that climate change has already been impacting us. There had always been droughts in south texas though. Virginia says they got worse and worse over time. It meant the grass wouldn't grow. Which meant virginia's dad had to start buying a lot of food to keep his cattle alive so much so that he wasn't making money off his ranch anymore. You know it's kind of funny. Because i was always kinda hassling. My dad was like dad counts. Produce methane and methane is really bad for the climate but when it came to the point where he had to sell them because he realized a drought was so bad. It put things into a different perspective for me. Because i realized that he really didn't have a choice. I realized that we had kind of gotten into this plane. With climate change where it wasn't theoretical. It wasn't something far off in the future that could happen. It was it was happening now

"It's going to be multiple stories playing out in those hit because the the conflict has trump's current focus is on old tech the oldest tech of in this sense mail in ballots and the role of the postal service and other things. But i tend to agree with you. I mean i cannot see that has anywhere to go in that that could have a really lost thing legacy whereas even now when you look at trump's twitter feed his attempt to question the result and every single one of them every single tweet is either not. It's tagged as being unreliable not to be trusted in some way and just the kind of look of that it only sunny. I think going to have a along a lasting impact on the fight over mail in vote when we talked about this before when we tried to think about this election in historical context. One of the questions is whether it could be a realignment election and wanted clearly not in the unlike some of these elections. Fdr reagan others where it broke decisively in favor of one party among candidate often quite late. In the in reagan's case late in the election campaign. This one is too close for that. I mean the popular vote is not that close but the electoral college one of the things about the electoral college is actually. It conceals have today's just as last time biden will win by quite a few electoral college votes. But i'm in vote times in the key states. We're talking only sutton less than one hundred thousand people in total so it's not that kind of realignment. It looks to me like the sort of election where parties were able to turn out their vote because sensually they both had the energy of oppositional campaigns i mean trump daytona because his voters wanted to oppose something and the thought that trump wouldn't be able to do it from the white house that he couldn't as the president he couldn't recapture the energy. Will he did. It's just this time. The democratic party had the same opportunity. Unlike last time to channel oppositional energy feels more like opposition versus opposition as opposed to kind of shift to a new order and yet clearly things have been happening. Said something that you. And i haven't discussed but being much commented on and i'd like to get your take on this as a so symbolic aspect of this election and the possibility of a realignment. The fact that florida does swing state that it moved more than most people anticipated into the republican column and yet on the same ballot people voted to increase the minimum wage. An in california which is always till the of time it feels like the democratic state. People voted down ballot to resist the possibility of unionization effectively of lifted able workers. Essentially the people voted as bouba uses rather than uber drivers and that is at least suggestive of a kind of shift that the republican party is more in tune with certain workers valleys and the democratic party is more aligned with consumers. Is that it's not happening. I think that there's there's something to that i mean. I think that if you were looking at the problems that the republican party has faced essentially since the end of the george bush senior era. So the time when you can no longer even think about winning landslide victories. Like it did under reagan on under nixon. You'd say that one of the problems at the party faced was that it basically in economic terms. I absolutely preoccupied with the supposed- issues facing wealthy american drown taxes on it had a deregulation agenda that went with that as well. But in terms of appealing to non wealthy americans that what was being offered to these various was primarily cultural on that. I think what you can see in terms of trump's in the first instance hijacking of the republican party for his cause was that he has opened up the possibility for the republican party of trying to have across racial more working class to now. We're still talking about relatively small numbers in the big scheme of things when we will come minority rights fully republican party. But you can see that. There is a possibility of of a buddha republican coalition. Now that's going to pull certain people in partygoer who i think we're hoping that could be rid of trump and you'll go by. You could go back to something like the old republican party. But i think that the trump is going to have a lasting effect in that respect. The republican party is not going to be easy for them to go back to being the party of simply tax cuts for the rich deregulation on coats. Conservative issues like abortion. I think that the democrats are in a more complicated position because on the one hand you can see that they have become a that sign middle class policy. Can she interests to the full but at the same time that there has been a shift to the left within the democratic party over the last four years that has been interested in constructing the same kind of multiracial multiethnic working-class coalition that some people in the trump side of the republican party might want to now think they've a chance to consolidate the difference for the democrats is obviously. They ended up with a candidate who was trying to restore the old order on whilst. I think it's reasonable to say that biden was able to do better with certain groups of working class voters white working class voters with hillary clinton didn't do particularly well. A tool is not clear that he's really been able to change the basic composition of the democratic coalition. He's just out today. Extremely highlight the state. That looks most interesting now. Even more than when we lost among we spoke with. Gary is georgia. Georgia is the one where there seems to be the biggest shift and this doesn't fit into a more familiar pattern. Which is the shift has come. Because we're really concerted. Effort on the part of democrats following stacey abrams defeat for the governorship to not just turn out votes but get people who are entitled to vote. The entitlement confirmed get people registered. Pushback really hard against the tactics of the republican party. That made it harder for people to vote and that it's possible that did make a decisive difference. And then you know the stakes. And i really high in georgia for the senate runoff elections. And who knows what's going to happen over the next couple of months the transition who knows what trump is gonna do who knows what kind of trouble he might cause he might not actually that much because he might not be able to and i want to touch on the end about trump again what he means to democracy. That fight now looks really intense and could be quite ugly as well in georgia given what really is at stake actually for the republican party as well as for the democratic party on these questions of not. Just turnout but actually voter registration. I mean i think it really depends in that those two senate runoff who manages to continue to channel is oppositional energy..

"Reflecting our tagline for this podcast will start it for years. Ago was kuban exclamation. Mark trump exclamation mark brexit exclamation. Mocking is definitely out of date. Now we haven't even talked about this. I mean appreciate took about it sometime. Jeremy corbyn has been suspended from the labour party. Donald trump soon is not going to be president united states and brexit which we have talked about some of the heat's strangers go out to that even though the most important decisions still to be made so if we think about the biden is coming in a sense the biden years of started. Today he's convening his cova taskforce. What the tagline should be and. We didn't episode talking about energy a couple of weeks ago. And the headline of that was i. Think china climate covid. Do that would do as a tagline for the biden yes of those the big challenges you see them. Yeah i think they essentially are in there obviously pretty related to each other too. I think that in the first instance the biden presidency is going to be about the now history both as a as a health crisis and as a as an economic crisis well on whatever domestic political ambitions that he has more long-term again in the first instance to have to be subordinated to but at the same time. I think it's pretty clear that this already is a pretty big geopolitical moment of change and that whilst it looked like i would say if we've been looking at this sort of march april. That biden had moved himself into being a supermax being as critical as anybody about the the old u. s. china relationship not position. It must be said that he deducted at the beginning of the year. I think we've now moved to a position where move possibility that we're gonna see a significant change that i think it can be a a restoration of the way that things were before trump bought on the trade with china but i think it is clearly in china that they perceived that this is something different from that point of view. And if it's the case which biden seems to be committing himself to that climate is really gonna be very very high priority full this administration than that has to have consequences for what kind of policy Towards china on covid luck plays upon inevitably. Good luck and bad luck. He might get lucky so he won't be president until january and i was thinking of people will be making fdr comparisons. One of the things fdi did was that during the transition which was longer in thirty. Two thirty three was five months. He really went out of his way to do nothing because he didn't want to co own anything that happened. In those five months he was silent. Essentially as the american economy went down. The drain biden is not taking that pot anymore than obama did during his transition biden is already saying he co owns it for better or for worse but it is at least possible. Come the early months of the biden presidency. There will be a vaccine. The west of the virus will be passed it will become manageable and people will associated with his watch. It's got to be possible timing. Actually on that for him is quite good. Climate is such a completely different challenge. Because it's much much more long term. I would also i mean we talked about this of course a lot. I didn't include it. Because i can't make alliterative. I can't think of a word that begins with c. That would work for this technology. The role of the big technology companies silicon valley and its influence on american political social economic cultural life. That must be the fourth big challenge for biden. Presidencies is not front and center today. But i cannot think over the next full years that won't be aspects of the relationship between the federal government and the power of technology companies. That would come really acute. Yeah i think that this question of big tech and american politics is being made even more complicated actually than than it has been for the last four years so we can perhaps proceeding that on the one that's going to be considerable division probably within the biden administration about how to do with big tax Kamala harris is being somebody who over the is has been quite big tech friendly some of her biggest donors as a democratic candidate just in her run for the democratic nomination came from silicon valley on biden has made a set of different noises on this issue. But i can see that if there's going to be a struggle for whose agenda was ready to dominate this presidency. The is going to be one of them. I think the thing is going to happen is just like last time. The role of big tech in the election is going to play. It's paul perceptions. I should say the role of big tech in the election's gonna play. Its part in undermining loses consent unless what we saw the last time they d criticisms made of facebook in particular. I think the the republican voters who are unhappy about the election way preceded again to direct some of that anger issues of the way in which the allegations about hundred biden's laptop were handled by facebook and twitter. So i think we're going to see a lot of political conflict actually more more even than we've seen in the past four years ago the relationship between big tech in democratic politics and it's not going to be one story either..

"Functions analytic donald trump clears them water. And so yes. We had a very high turnout election. But donald trump is going to fast his numbers from two thousand sixteen. And that puts a pit in my stomach. If i'm being blunt with you and us not because donald trump is a republican. It's because he is a kind of figure that i had hoped. Americans would reject on a moral level to say nothing then of competence level. Where as you say. We've had two hundred thousand people die from coronavirus But the fact that america's had one of the worst responsive any well off nation as not seem to affect our politics much at all so yeah might take on..

"Concerned about the economy you voted for trump. Yes so. I never know how to read that. What i would say is that. You're always at risk with those numbers of reading the rationalizations not the motivations so joe biden centered coronavirus in his campaign and as such when you ask a liberal y joe biden the thing joe biden and the democratic party in general ran on corona virus is going to be topmost in their mind. Donald trump to the extent he centered anything to center the economy and in particularly economy versus corona virus right. He was very clear that we can't be an endless lockdown. You need to get the economy moving. So when people vote for donald trump they and what's most important the think he's been telling them as most important is what they say. And so there is a way here in which it is not clear to me. These poll polling questions. Always tell you what you need to know. And also i'm in general. A little bit mistrustful of the polling right now and so. I will say that i am surprised. In the big picture way that the coronavirus and the poverty of america's response to it the incompetence of america's response to it the number of dead americans the absolute devastation. the economy didn't move the race moore. You know if you look at approval rating numbers which are a form of polling at trust quite a bit more than i trust. Sort of like wisconsin state election polling. Yeah i e you can really see the donald trump's approval rating was unchanged from a year ago. And if you look at the way this election is gonna play out to whoever wins. It will be the case. If i'd didn't gains a couple of million votes on were clinton was in a couple even potentially appoints on where clinton was but it isn't a sea change. It's i keep thinking in my head like the phrase like everything happened. Nothing mattered. And i don't want to say nothing mattered. Intrude right two hundred thousand people all matt right. The the the world is warming. But i mean by that is that this was the most tumultuous political era. I can remember everything happened right. I mean impeachment happened. a pandemic happened. A massive recession happened. And what are we going to get. We're gonna get an election in twenty twenty. That looks a lot like the election in two thousand sixteen. Yeah i mean. What does that say about. Joe biden was he perhaps not the right candidate to run against donald trump. It's hard counterfactual here. It is possible that another candidate would have done better. It is possible another candidate would have done worse so on the one hand biden seems to have lost ground among hispanics particularly in in florida and texas on the other hand his gained among whites which may be as assuming he does win. Wisconsin pennsylvania michigan likely. The reasons why that's a look totally efficient trade in way so it is genuinely hard to know. You can't rerun the election bernie. Sanders performed a better among hispanics during the primary. A bit worse among white voters. If you're looking at florida which is where the seems to have been the most consequential. That's a pretty heavy cuban population. They are pretty against socialism in general. So it's not clear that he would have done whether he might have done quite a bit worse. We just truly don't know there's a a a real tendency after an election particularly if you feel disappointment in it to say we did this. It didn't turn out the way i wanted it to. Therefore we should have done that but that could have turned out worse or could it turn out better. You know unlike in the forecast models we actually can't rerun the election thousand times with different candidates to see who nc how they all would have performed one thing. I think we do know for certain. And whether you support donald trump or whether you support. Joe biden what we saw yesterday and for the past know. Weeks of voting is historic turnout during a global pandemic during a tanking economy while the president was trying to discredit the election. That feels sort of remarkable. A lot of people were scared that you know there was going to be absolute chaos in the streets potentially civil war gun sales. Were going up and i don't wanna speak too soon because they're they're still is almost certainly legal challenges ahead but it feels like american democracy had at least a decent election day and maybe the bars really low but is that a hopeful sign. I don't think. American democracy had a decent election day exactly. I recognize what you're saying so we have not at least at this point collapsed into political violence across the country. We do have the president of the united states. trying to clear victory overnight and sending out five tweets. at least as of the time. I'm packing that have been identified as election misinformation by twitter. And suggesting that what's coming is an effort to cheat and steal the election from him so number one were already a pretty low level. That's not a good night for democracy like that's a bad night for peaceful transition of power even if it doesn't go anywhere and then we have an election. Where if we were just talking about the popular vote and we'd be having no conversation over. Who will win the white house. Joe biden is going to stop. Donald trump in the popular vote the estimates. I've seen something like five to seven million vote lead. That's probably going to be enough to win the electoral college too. But the fact that there's even some chance it would not be is astonishing The fact that there would be some chance that three out of six elections since two thousand presidential elections would be won by the loser of the popular. Vote is just stonning again. I don't think that's going to be the outcome here. But who would not be great then in the senate republicans again. I think they're likely to keep it at a very narrow margin. They're not gonna win more votes. It went far fewer votes And then i mentioned earlier gerrymandering in the long term about where democracy is going and whether or not it is going to be. Anything deserves the terminology of democracy. Which i think at least in its folk understanding which strikes me as correct for this tends to reflect the popular pens be a system in which the popular will expresses itself through voting into power. I don't think it's a good night. And i don't think it's looking good future some a little bit more pessimistic on that dimension of this than than i think you are. Yeah i guess when. I see you know highest voter turnout. In a century and consider that it happened during a pandemic. That's taken two hundred thousand american lives. I just feel quite frankly like happy to see people out there. Voting people caring no matter who they voted for Yes the the level of turnout is Remarkable and i think if you're looking for bright spots it's that i don't know i look at this election and i look at this president at a look at the way he is governed which is poorly and the way he has approached his office which is cruelly. And i don't think it should have been this close. There's a kind of political correctness in journalism where you can say on some level. The president is doing a bad job. That's sort of okay. You're not ever really supposed to question how to see him right if if you're doing that. Then your condescending. Or something i think. The president is a bad precedent who operates without a moral compass and he proves that every single day and just as it a nerve me in two thousand sixteen in a nerves me now so many people are find his behavior acceptable. I don't think it is acceptable The question here is not like do. I stimulus multipliers or two three or one point two. It's i think there should be basic standards of decency. And i don't think donald trump is above them. I think they should be basic standards of respect for how the american political system.

"Saying things. Look good for them charted tonight we believe we're on track to win this election but trump just straight up declared victory last night. We will win this. And as far as i'm concerned we already have one so i just wanna thank. How is this going to shake out in the coming days and weeks. Well it's a little too early to tell in. Wisconsin trump has asked for a recount. Interestingly we saw a tweet from former republican wisconsin governor scott walker who seemed to be throwing a bit of cold water on on trump's expectations that a recount could change his margin. He emphasized that twenty thousand votes is a big number to have to change in the recount. So that could be a signal that if trump makes Really exaggerated claims that the election is being stolen from him that perhaps republicans won't go along we've also seen republicans are favored to keep control. The senate right now so mitch. Mcconnell might not want to rock the boat by doing anything to help out trump. But you know it's really just going to come down to how close things are in. How many states. If the election really does come down to a very small number votes in pennsylvania we are going to see lawsuits flying all sorts of wild efforts to gain the upper hand from both campaigns but if either candidate wins enough of the remaining states to have some wiggle room so to speak. That could help. Avoid this really contested outcome. For instance think back to two thousand. Sixteen trump won wisconsin michigan and pennsylvania by less than one percentage point each but he won all three of them which is to say he won them by the same more or less percentage that. He's now disputing biden. One wisconsin buy. Yes but the issue here is that it did not come down to one st because trump only needed one of those three states to win the election. So for instance michigan was very close at twenty sixteen but trump didn't need michigan because he already had won pennsylvania and wisconsin. Obviously the trump campaign is going to fight this. Still try to come up with something but It's just unclear what that would be at this point and whether it could stand up in the courts okay but just so people know what to look out for what are the pads victory now for biden and for trump. There's one you know very well for biden. It's michigan wisconsin. pennsylvania that's all he needs if biden loses pennsylvania. He can get there with michigan wisconsin and arizona and nevada He could also substitute georgia for arizona and for trump. he's really got a hold onto north carolina which hasn't been called yet in most scenarios. He has to win georgia also on top of that. He needs to pry away pennsylvania from biden and he probably needs to win either. Arizona.
