Powered by triple a roadside assistance. With Elisa Jaffe, I'm Tom Glasgow. Jeremy grater is at the editor's desk. As we take a look at some of the day's top stories. We're getting reports that an agreement has been reached in principle on a border deal to avoid a government shutdown President Trump continuing to push for a wall along the border with Mexico speaking with a group of sheriff's today, the president blamed Democrats for wanting to allow criminals into the US still ahead there Thompson owner satisfaction. But consumer reports no longer recommends Dyson stick vacuums. I'm herb Weisbaum. With why the editors did this last week Democrats in congress unveiled their new green deal calling for an overhaul of the nation's energy sector, says congresswoman Alexandria, a Cossio Cortez. We're here to say that small incremental policy solutions are. Not enough and sense. The green new deal was revealed. The president has said it would eliminate all planes and cows, Salvador Rizzo is a fact checker for the Washington Post. He spoke with komo's Taylor van Cise. What are the key goals of the green new deal as it's currently written? It's a resolution that has been introduced in the house and the Senate it's one of those resolutions that even if it passes it wouldn't have the force of law. So it's just a statement of broad principles. That's an important thing to keep in mind. Legislation would come later key goals. They're pretty sweeping very ambitious. It's a job guarantee for everyone healthcare and higher education for everyone. And then the environmental goals, which are reaching one hundred percent of the power demand through clean renewable and zero emissions. Energy over ten years building out high speed rail and large quantities across the United States. You know, transitioning to what's called the smart power grid refurbishing every single building in the United States to meet heightened energy efficiency standards, and you know, using those standards for all new buildings get built. So it's just it's a it's a mix. It's a wishlist, it's a broad statement of priorities. We don't actually know what it would look like when you know, the details of policy making, you know, come up and Bill starts to be drafted. Now. The president says that it would permanently. Eliminate all planes cars cows oil gas and the military. You're the fact checker if any legislation was created from the green new deal proposal would any of those things happen. Certainly not the military cows airplanes cars, you know, some things are two grand and to society, you know, for lawmakers to be able to get rid of them, even if they wanted to I certainly it's not in the resolution itself right now. So no one is really talking about that there's been some compassion because you know, some supporting materials have been, you know, causing some confusion and have been misinterpreted. But the fact is you know, none of that is is in the offing. There's a good question. What you know? These goals would mean for the oil industry, right because the green new deal calls for, you know, the euro emission all clean renewable energy. And so by extension that does mean getting rid of, you know, sources like oil energy. But we'll see I mean again, it comes down to legislation and this is a net yet not everything in the green new deal as you've mentioned has to do with pollution and energy. Why was medical leave and retirement included in this wishlist? That's the new deal part of the green near deal. Right. I mean. Mix the old new deal and the green new deal precisely the Democrats say this is a two for a lot of things in there. But you know, you can describe it as a twofer in that there's all sorts of economic and social guarantees healthcare higher education and jobs being well, also retirement security, and some other things like medical leave, which you mentioned, and then there's all the environmental priorities that are in there as well. Thanks for setting a straight Salvador Izzo. The fact check from the Washington Post you can read his article online at Washington Post dot com. That's komo's Taylor.

"What experts recommend all of those risk behaviors have been linked to negative consequences for the health of teens such as depression or school, performance and obesity. Now more chip Franklin on. Ten chip Franklin. Nikki medoro the day before after the Super Bowl the day before the state of the union and Trump was talking then and he'll be talking tomorrow question is how much of it will be true. It's it's interesting when you look at some of the whoppers, fifty eight thousand non-citizens voted in Texas with ninety five thousand non-citizens registered to vote. These numbers are just the tip of the remind you a little bit back in two thousand sixteen when he said three million people voted illegally in California. Joining us right now is Salvador Rizzo. He is the he's the fact checker at the Washington Post nice enough to join us here. So this is interesting to see. How far he wants to take this when he just comes out with these numbers were those numbers even close as first ones. I just said no never not close at all. You mentioned the fifty eight thousand nine citizens who purportedly voted in Texas. So this all began with the Texas secretary of state, David Williams, Republican he put out a list on Friday and the list on Friday. Said that there were these all these tens of thousands of voters who had signed up for a driver's license or an ID card with documents that showed that they were not USA's sins. But that they were legally in the country. And so the secretary of state put out this list, assuming that because fifty eight thousand these people voted in ninety five thousand of these people had registered to vote that therefore all of them were suspicious characters. You know? In Texas quickly discovered is that a lot of these people signed up for these licenses and then they became citizens, they became naturalized. And so therefore they were eligible tomorrow. So it's a huge in Texas. And the president tweeted this right when the list came out, and they the White House didn't respond to our questions about it. And we walk them through what had happened. So, you know, this seems like, you know, just a callous indifference to misinformation, and then pretty huge, you know, misinformation this case. Yeah. And the thing about it is is that there's really nobody other than in the Washington Post New York Times and a few other major newspaper standing up to him because Fox News isn't Sasol. How hard is it to catch Trump on the lies when he tells so many lies? It wasn't hard because chaos in Texas, and everyone who has a stake in it, you know, in the voting rights of you know, non-citizens or Ashaari of immigrants who become citizens. Anyone who has a stake in just, you know, the facts, and you know, what's going on with election law in huge state. You know, they're very they're they're all very alert. They're all on this issue. A number of lawsuits have been filed. So it's a big deal down there. But you know, obviously this talking point when it first came out was very convenient for the president who was making this case for the border wall. Right. You know, what better avenue to see you need, then, you know, tens of thousands of people voting illegally in Texas a border state. I saw the congressman Bill heard on television recently. And in his congressional district is like two thirds of what the wall would be. It's an amazingly huge district. And he's saying that, you know, even though there was like some four hundred thousand people came undocumented into the country last year that's down eighty percent since two thousand we're talking to salve Rizzo the Washington Post. He is their fact checker. But there was another thing that Trump said week ago, I found interesting he said that the of the federal inmates. Twenty three percent are undocumented or illegal and uses language is that true. Is that accurate? Well, it's closer to thirteen. Really? Okay. All right. Yeah. The Justice department. You know, we like to a report in this fact today. They count up all the federal prison inmate separate and distinct from the people who are in prison at the state or county level, right or tail at a county level. So you're only county a subset of all the prisoners. And the Justice department says thirteen percent of them did not have lawful immigration status in the United States has at the end of twenty seven the overwhelming majority of arrests in this country are for state crime. So it would make sense that when the federals arrest somebody, it's probably somebody that has something to do with immigration, and it is obviously a much smaller number than the others. But I mentioned congressman Bill heard who is from Texas and his district is a huge district down there. And he was really impressive. I didn't realize he was in the CIA ten years. And he's saying there's not a problem here. He's standing up to Trump, and he's a Republican well in the state of the union tomorrow night will Trump again, adopt. This this immigrants are coming to get us coming across the border and their rapists. Will you stop that theme? Again. It's really hard to. Predict just because Trump one hand is an unpredictable president and on the other hand, you know, he did telegraph. He's been saying that he wants to sound a note of unity in the speech. But you know, he is a pugnacious character. So I wonder if it will be a dominant team this unity saying that he's supposedly going to try out. I think we should expect a fair number of of claims about immigration, we have a database here at the fact checker in which we track every false and misleading claim that the president has made since he took office and immigration by far is is the biggest category of false and misleading claims. And obviously the border wall is still the big backdrop to his presidency. And so I think you can expect a lot of that. I think you can expect him to rightly claim some credit for the bright economic news. We've had recently. Although, you know, if he starts to veer into trade, you know, that's that's something where he often says falter misleading things to when he's talking about trade with China China. Yeah. I mean, China all he's done is we're talking to fact checker Sal Rizzo from the Washington Post, the one we always hear from Trump is that undocumented immigrants caused an increase in crime. We know that's not true. All the evidence says the opposite. Do we know if he's going to be talking about that? During the state of the union, and are we actually going to get a transcript of the state of the union? Yes. I think we can expect some perhaps tomorrow's shortly before this speech. They they do recognize although the administration you're right is different from previous ones. They do recognize vantage to kind of teasing out some of the themes that they're going to be talking about if not the whole speech what's running count on lies because you guys have been tracking Trump's lies. I know you'd like to call misstatements, but I'm gonna call him is what is the current count right now. We have the evidence. We call them lies. The issue is that it's very hard to know someone's intent even with Trump who who is a serial purveyor of Pereira occasions, but. On a serial purveyor for. But Pereira like it I like it, but we do technically in the database call them false and misleading claims. Just because it's hard to discern. Yeah. I yeah. And that's eight thousand four hundred and fifty eight how many eight thousand four hundred fifty eight as of yesterday February third. Wow. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. And you keep it up. So you'll be counting tomorrow night. I would imagine. Yes. We will be Naccache. Thank you. Again. The Washington Post Salvador Izzo, the fact checker nice enough. Join us here on K G O. Thanks. Thank you. I thank you, man. I really appreciate your help. All right coming up next. Here's a question for you. Give you the last quarter hour to you eight ten with Trump lying eight thousand times in two years. Well, we ever believe a politician again, and that north from guy the governor of Virginia all of them together as a possible to be successful and glib politician today and tell the truth to everyone. I don't think so we'll talk to you next eight eight ten I'm chip. That's you.

"Sunday by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about the need for a border wall. She insisted repeatedly that thousands of suspected terrorists come into the US through the southern border host. Chris Wallace was disbelieving. Let's listen roughly nearly four thousand known or suspected terrorists come into our country illegally. And we know that are most vulnerable point of entry is. I didn't know if you're going to use it. But I studied up on this, do you know, where those four thousand people come where they're captured airports, not always airport. Certainly department says there hasn't been any terrorist that they found coming air. Thailand, and it's spicy. It's all of the above. But President Trump is homeland security secretary cures to Nielsen and other administration officials have also been repeating this claim using it to bolster their push for a border wall. What's true? Let's go to the Washington Post fact, checker Salvador Izzo, Sal, welcome. Great to be with you. We should say you give this claim three Pinocchio, which is not good. It means not true unpack it where did this claim start. But said based on well, first of all depending on how they phrase it. We've also given it four Panetta's in. This instance, it was three because there was just a sliver of it. That was based in fact, but as Chris Wallace rightly pointed out and insisted during this interview on Sunday, the Trump administration has not broken down whether any of those four thousand people technically three thousand seven hundred and fifty five and fiscal year twenty seventeen whether any of them tried to enter the US through the southern border. And so that's the key issue. Because this talking point is in service. Of you know, the argument for the border wall. But the fact that they can't say whether any of these suspected or no terrorists are, you know, trying to cross the southern border is very telling I think where do we get that number three thousand seven hundred and fifty five. So that includes anyone who has known or suspected ties to terrorism who tries to enter through any port of entry and so- airports have ports of entry. There are maritime ports of entry. And there are land ports of entry on the Canadian and Mexican borders. And so what you really need. If this is going to be a talking point in service of the wall is a breakdown of how many of these individuals are trying to cross the border. There are other pieces of information that have been released by the Trump administration that indicate that no terrorists have gained access to the United States this on border earn to be clear when you and Chris Wallace and everyone else says it's largely through airports. It's not even airports on US soil. It's foreign airports. Around the world in almost every case. These people are interdicted before they even board these flights to the United States. You're right. Listen, you're saying that US officials have not been able to point to any terrorists trying to cross the border into the US. But Kirsten Nielsen uses the figure ten Terrassa day try to cross the southern border. So in that phrasing that would be four Pinocchio SP secretary Nielsen at some other points, for example on January fourth when she was with President Trump in the rose garden, she referenced a different number special interest aliens. And so that's a slight of hand because at that point criticism had already begun to filter out again because this is a number that they repeat a lot of three thousand seven hundred and fifty five known or suspected terrorists. So at the rose garden, she switches to a different metric that's also not, you know, necessarily about terrorists. So there's a lot of there's a shell game of sorts going on with people. You know, look at this number, but then you look into it. And it's not really what it seems. And then you switch to a different number and the same thing happens when you look into it the State Department in two thousand seventeen so under the Trump administration reported no credible information, any member of a terrorist group has traveled through Mexico to gain access to the United States. That's a very strong declarative statement and the Trump administration when it trots out these other talking points in numbers does not convincingly rebut this line. Look, no, one would want even one terrorist with terrible intentions to come into the United States. So that no one saying, let's not have security at the border. But they're asking, you know, how exactly to do in..
