"Listeners and members of public radio. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm new L king. Good morning. There's a growing push in Hollywood to boycott the state of Georgia. It comes in response to Georgia passing a Bill that restricts abortion, but a rising star in the Democratic Party is urging Hollywood not to leave Stacey Abrams. Who lost a close race for governor of door to last year says this is the wrong strategy that it could cost tens of thousands of jobs that people who work in Georgia's entertainment industry, Rachel Martin Abrams in Los Angeles, where she has been meeting with Hollywood executives this week. There is a strong emphasis on chilling values through boycotts. And as a daughter of south, I appreciate that. But the solution to this challenge does not come from removing economic opportunity. It actually comes from changing the composition of our readers because while the force pregnancy. Bill is one attempt to remove access to help. Care, their other bills that will follow this feed if we want a permanent solution, we need a permanent change in that means investing in political change in the state of Georgia, and that's why people stay fight. Although can't you do both to some degree. I mean, there are examples of how economic boycotts, can at least creep public pressure that leads to change. I'm thinking of the twenty sixteen boycott of North Carolina. The transgender bathroom Bill or the boycott that happened in Indiana of the tension between gay rights and religious freedom. I mean those boycotts created public pressure that helped leverage change. They did. But we have to remember that the V Hugh community that years building a narrative within the corporations that worked while it's happening now has not reached a same place. That's why you see that. It's the entertainment industry, that's pushing back, but when the religious freedom bills, removing it was five hundred company, that was tech company, the challenges that in two years will likely become law, and if we want to repeal. So it we have to recognize the people who pass for those legislators. This isn't democrat how they win election. These are not people who are going to send their beliefs or their votes. And to the most effective way to change. The outcome is to actually change the people who are making decision. Do you think Democrats have missed the boat and not creating the kind of foundation and structure around abortion, that Republicans have over the years. I don't think that they've missed the boat. I think there is a belief that because court had made Roe v Wade settled law.

However, my responsibility to meet the challenge where stand. And I'm proud of the work that's being done by reproductive choice groups. I'm proud of the voices, we're hearing coming out of democratic leaders. But we also have to remember. That if Roe v. Wade returned. It doesn't ban abortion returns, the responsibility state, and we want state of Georgia to the effective to have a business climate that invites not only entertainment industry, but other company, we have to solve our health care crisis, and that includes solving the crisis of making sure women have access to healthcare by having acted. Reproductive tweeden. Former vice president, Joe Biden, recently reversed his long held support for something called the Hyde amendment which essentially bands federal funding for abortion. Do you believe all Democrats should have a uniform position on all aspects of the abortion debate? I believe that leaders are required. She serves the people and abortion access is a healthcare, right? It is the way women can control their bodies until their heaters, economic destiny. And while your personal beliefs are absolutely yours, as a leader believe that we should be pushing for and electing leaders who reflect that value who believe that women should have the right to make health care decisions for themselves in the family that should be a litmus test for all Democrats.

There are more than twenty Democrats running for president. Is there space for you? I think that there is base relation I decide that I can add value to this contest.

Currently sixty two degrees in Ventura sixty three in downtown LA. Hi, everyone. I'm Tanzania Vega. And this is the takeaway Michael Brown's mother Lesley McFadden was defeated in her bid to become a city council member in Ferguson, Missouri yesterday activists Fran Griffin beat mix baton to win. The city council seat here to talk to us about the election results is Rachel Lipman reporter covering politics and criminal Justice for Saint Louis public radio. Welcome back to the takeaway. Rachel, thank you Tanzania. It's always a pleasure to be on tell us for those remembering Ferguson was the scene of many protests a couple of years back. What does the outcome of this election? Tell us about where Ferguson is today. I think what the election shows is that it is a city, or at least a war at that is ready for some it changed the person that Frank Griffin also defeated Keith Kallstrom was a longtime incumbent in that war. He was a white man representing award. That is predominantly African American. The city itself is majority African American. But this ward is heavily almost eighty percent African American, and it is one of the poorest in the city and Griffin is a woman who had been out working not just protesting. She joined a number of groups that are trying to guide and lead the policy reforms that Ferguson is having to make and is one who was present in the community in ways that activists that I spoke to said that next baton or Kallstrom had never really been Ferguson has been synonymous with racial inequality. Do these elections suggest to change? It is hard to say simply because this is just one ward. If an African American person was able to be elected out of some of the words that are maybe more predominantly white. I think that could potentially market change. But from this war, it isn't necessarily surprising that an African American candidate with get elected. In fact, I think it's more surprising that one hadn't been elected before. Now or before two thousand fifteen. When this it elected its first African American council member the last time, we spoke there was a criminal Justice reformer Wesley bell won the democratic primary for St Louis county. Prosecutor what is he done since? He was sworn back in January some of the bigger things that he has focused on is an effort to expand the diversion programs drug court, for example, some of the programs that help redirect individuals who have been charged with low level felonies that is in limbo right now as they attempt to find the resources for this. It is not an cheap program to run has also taken a page from circuit attorney, Kim Gardner's book, and is no longer going to prosecute marijuana possession charges below one hundred grams he has ruled out the death penalty going forward. It's unclear what he will do with cases that death penalty has already been decided as a penalty that the office will seek and he has also. Said that he will no longer handle child support cases, criminally that if someone is very delinquent on their child support payments. He will handle that instead through civil or collections process. We also know that Ferguson police are still under a federal consent decree where does that stand today have relations between the black community and law enforcement improved. I think that depends on who you ask I think from a very fifty thousand foot level the answer is yes, just simply because the mindset of the department is no longer we have to go out and get these fines and fees, not only because they are limited by state law. But also by the consent decree in terms of how they can police, but I would imagine that there are individual stories or individual officers within that department who still may have problematic relationships with the community, but I think overall at eight for a bride level. Yes, relationships have changed. Rachel Lipman politics..

"Edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. Georgia lawmakers narrowly passed a Bill that would make abortion illegal as soon as a heartbeat is detected governor Brian Kemp is expected to sign it. The opponents include democratic state Senator, Jennifer, Jordan. No matter my faith, my beliefs. My losses. I have never ever stray from the basic principle that each woman each woman must be able to make her decisions in consultation with her body and her family Senator Jordan joins us now on the line. Good morning. Welcome to the program. Good morning. I want to get right to it. By noting the billboards that I have seen that many people have seen all over the country, including I think on Georgia highway billboards that say abortion stops, a beating heart. How do you answer people for whom that is the governing governing idea? You know, it's it's difficult. And it was one of the reasons why this debate is so difficult because if you have people who don't believe kind of in the same set of facts. It's really hard to debate it, and that's why it was kind of important with respect to my own experience to try to say, it's not true. You say your own experience. What was your experience? Senator. Well, I've had multiple miscarriages after having sane fetal cardiac activity on ultrasound. And so, and that's basically what the Bill does here is that when a woman or when a fetus, it's capable of fatal cardiac activity being detected, which is about five point five to six weeks pregnant that at that point in time that fetus is considered for all for all purposes under Georgia law a full citizen of the state of Georgia. And does that mean that as you understand it, there could be criminal consequences of some kind? Should there be not a United an abortion? But a miscarriage of the kind that you experienced. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean it, and there is some case law in the state that has talked about the criminalization of abortion. With respect to women and how every miscarriage could be investigated. I mean, it could be just you. You're not taking care of yourself properly. So somehow, you're criminally negligent, maybe you are drinking, maybe you're smoking. And then you have a miscarriage, and then you're subject to prosecution in the state did Republicans respond to that argument at all. Did they agree? Yeah. That's we want to do with this Bill. You know, it's one of those things when nobody ever responded to that. I did a pretty significant analysis going back in terms of the law in the statutory language. And it's clear that the intent of this wall is to criminalize women which goes much further than any law in the country. I mean, the whole idea that as soon as the woman is able to detect that she's pregnant which is at about five point five weeks in terms of a pregnancy test that at that point in time her body doesn't belong to her anymore and and belongs to the state of Georgia. I mean that is clearly exactly what they intended here. I mean, they even put an affirmative defense for prosecution in for women when you see that. There can be no doubt that this was directed toward, you know, you know, subjecting women to prosecution if and when they did anything that may result in a loss. President Senator do you view this as a direct challenge to Rovers? Versus Wade, of course, which protects generally abortions in the first two trimesters. Yeah. I mean, the authors the sponsor even the governor has indicated that this is exactly what it is. I mean, it is intended to be outrageous. It's intended to be stopped in the courts, and then to go up to the supreme court because that's exactly what they wanna do. They want to overturn Roe. But the problem is is that the implications. Go far beyond abortion, this affects every decision that women making their lives and basically relegates us in Georgia. At least the women to second basically, kind of not fully adult humans responsible for our own. Choices citizens Senator thank you so much. Thank you. That state. Senator Jennifer, Jordan and Georgia. Nearly five years ago. A white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri shot and killed the black eighteen year old named Michael Brown Brown's mother Lesley McFadden is now running for a seat on the Ferguson city council in an election tomorrow. Here's Rachel Lipman from Saint Louis public radio the council looks much different than it did in August two thousand fourteen back then there was just one black councilman in this city that is majority black. The mayor was also white jeans Knowles is still in office. But the six person council now has three black and white members. It's a huge shift. And if mixed baton wins, the board would have a black majority for the first time on the day. She announced last August supporters called the decision historic. She outlined three priorities. She wanted to focus on its community policy. Yes. Economic equality. Yeah. And access to healthcare for all of Ferguson's young children. Everyday people the council plays a critical role in monitoring how well the city is doing at making those mandated reforms it's a task mixed bad says she's more than up to and I've been kind of watching them with like an eagles is to make sure that they comply with the consent decree that was put in place, and that we never have a repeat of August ninth likely has the best name recognition of the three candidates running in the third ward. But for some residents like LaTasha Brown that's not enough. The mouse kind of thing did I heard were issue realm is not related to Michael Brown. She lives in the apartment complex where he was shot and killed and walks past his memorial every day. She is also an advocate for the residents of Ferguson's five large apartment complexes. She's not involved. She's nine engage with the community. Police community's problem is we weren't engaged with with CD politics. We didn't know well this one or how decisions were made. I ran Griffin one of mixed fans. Opponents also argues that the third ward needs a stronger advocate. It's the city's poorest, and though it's overwhelmingly black. It did not elect a black council member until two thousand fifteen. There are a lot of plans that are coming down the pipeline at this point. And my concern is that the people in the communities voices will be heard if we don't have proper representation on that board Griffin and McFadden are challenging the incumbent Keith Kallstrom Kallstrom who was white has been on the council for sixteen of the last twenty-five years. He defends his record of representing the community. I want to get it. Right. I want to be fair for everybody. Not just one race or another race Griffin. And Kallstrom say they're campaigning for the seat not running against McFadden, although both openly question if she's qualified mixed Madden has a very simple response. If a mother had to watch her son Atlanta street for four and a half hours and watch a community be completely disrespected by elected officials that we elected. Well, would you stand up and you were fighting when I'm elected she.

Roger stone is due in court today in Washington. President Trump's former campaign adviser is expected to plead not guilty to charges that include lying to congress and witness tampering. They stem from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election.

Rachel Lipman was Saint Louis public radio reports the lawsuit claims that judges in Saint Louis give no meaningful consideration to a person's income level or whether they are flight risk.

"With the president of China this weekend. Both are locked in a multi-billion dollar trade war. Civil rights leaders say the indictment of four Saint Louis metropolitan police officers reveals a troubling mindset. Inside the department Saint Louis public radio's Rachel Lipman reports. The officers are facing federal charges for their roles in the assault of an undercover officer during a two thousand seventeen protests. The charges include excessive force obstruction of Justice and lying to a grand jury four officers have been suspended without pay the undercover detective was among hundreds of people arrested at downtown Saint Louis in September of last year. It was the third day of protests after a white for a police officer was acquitted of shooting and killing a black, man. That's Rachel Lipman reporting. This is NPR and I'm Jimmy Floyd for WNYC. Some New York City council. Members are introducing a Bill to make the government bidding process with corporations more transparent. The new law would prohibit officials from signing nondisclosure agreements with companies as happened in the Amazon deal councilmember Brad Lander says he feels that level of secrecy should not happen again. If the law had been in place, the city would have had to say we can't sign a non disco. Agreement. So there's two choices. We can make a bid, but it has to be public and people would be able to see it. The Bill is cosponsored by council members Monty Williams and Jimmy van Bremer atop regional Federal Housing administrator is calling for the arrest of three Niger officials after a report found they regularly lied about elevator. Inspections. Lynn Pat overseas region, two of the department of housing and urban development, which includes New York and New Jersey yesterday.

I guess it's well intention that she does ask a question that is important. And that is did anybody higher up the ladder condone this behavior that isn't really important question. That's the most important question. Smith says the case will be handled by.

There Trump's visit comes on the heels of a big development and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation a guilty plea by his former attorney Michael Cohen, and what it revealed about Trump's efforts to land a business deal with Russia during the two thousand sixteen campaign NPR White House correspondent tamra Keith is traveling with the president and joins us now from when his IRAs their town. Hey, ATI sometimes when a president goes overseas. The White House is trying to leave all the domestic troubles behind is that the case this time, the answer would seem to be no. And and the reason I say that is that President Trump was supposed to have a meeting here with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he abruptly cancelled that on the way to Argentina via tweet saying it was because of Russian aggression against Ukraine, but then this afternoon there were. Reports of a possibly an informal meeting happening between Trump and Putin. Those reports were being pushed from Russia and the White House put out a sort of an odd statement referring to the Mueller investigation. Sarah Sanders sent this along she said the Russian witch-hunt hoax, which is hopefully now nearing an end is doing very well. Unfortunately, it probably does undermine our relationship with Russia, which was not entirely the answer to the question that we were asking another way that we know that the president's thinking about it is that he's been tweeting about it from here in Argentina a little while ago. Reporter's got to ask the president questions, and and one of the questions was about why he cancelled his meeting with Putin. He insisted it was because of Ukraine, hopefully, they'll be able to settle it out. Flowers amazing with president. The basis of what took place. With respect to the ships, sailors that was the. In the meantime, what else has been going on at the g twenty one big thing that happened today was before the g twenty started a signing ceremony at the president's hotel with the leaders of Canada and Mexico signing the US MCA that is the trade deal that will replace NAFTA. One interesting note is that during remarks, President Trump and president Pineyro of Mexico. It was his last day on the job both referred to it as the US MCA, which is the preferred title that President Trump likes, but prime minister Trudeau kept calling it new NAFTA, even though President Trump does not like the term NAFTA at all. But you know, this is a notable moment because this is a step in the process of President Trump, keeping a campaign promise that said congress and legislatures in Mexico and Canada still need to sign off on this on another subject. The Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman is there. He's of course, been under scrutiny since the killing of journalist Jamal kashogi has he actually interacted with President Trump yet. So a White House official says that they just exchanged pleasantries that there was no discussion. This comes in pretty big contrast with a video that's been circulating of Russian President Putin, and m Bs exchanging sort of an intricate high five that looked very celebratory the president is under some scrutiny about this because he has questioned the CIA assessment that NBS ordered the killing of Jamal kashogi. That's NPR's tamra Keith tamra. Thank you. You're welcome. And we're going to start right there with the g twenty talks in Argentina for our regular week in politics chat. We also need to take stock of another wild week in the Russia investigation. David Brooks of the New York Times is here in the studio as he often has on Friday, David with you and Susan Glasser. The New Yorker, welcome to you. Thanks so much. So President Trump signed this new NAFTA deal today, except as we just heard we're not supposed to call it NAFTA anymore. That's controversial. We are referring to the United States Mexico Canada agreement the US MCA, Scott, I'm tempted to call it also maybe prospects for a trade deal or some sort of agreement with China that may be coming together down at the g twenty Susan. Let me start with you does this count as progress in a year where we have spent a lot more time talking about trade wars than trade deals. Well, look, I think President Trump made a decision to sort of pull back from the brink and to declare victory with the reincarnated NAFTA. Whatever you wanna call it, most experts, and I'm not one on this subject. Do believe that it essentially is a reincarnated NAFTA that it builds on the foundation substantially of the original went and by the way, it's not attend deal. I should point out that there's going to be a real political fight. I think. Up here in Washington on Capitol Hill over approving this. So it's not over. Although President Trump was was taking it as a victory lap. Today was also strengthened by government coming in Mexico, which will inherit the steel by a president on his last day there. That's right.
