Democrats unveil immigration plan with 8-year pathway to citizenship

"Congressional Democrats today introducing a bill to remake the U. S immigration system. It's called the U. S. Citizenship Citizenship Act of 2021, unveiled by Senator Bob Menendez, Democrat of New Jersey, and California Democratic representative Linda Sanchez, among the highlights that includes an eight year pathway to citizenship for those people in the country unlawfully. If they arrived by January, 1st of this year. It would also lift hurdles for those workers to legally immigrate to the United States as well. Azad financial resources to border screening and replace the word alien with non citizen in law. Senator Menendez, announcing details during a zoom called earlier today. Under the status quo. We still prevent family members from reuniting legally in the United States because of lengthy backlogs and delays. We still send graduates educated in our great universities back to their home countries, instead of allowing them to drive innovation here in America, and we still make it too hard for companies to hire the workers they need to innovate and force American workers to compete. With exploited undocumented labor. That's why we today collectively are introducing the U. S. Citizenship Act in the Senate in the House legislation that brings to life President Biden's plan to restore humanity and American values to our immigration system. It's our vision. It's our vision off what immigration reform should Look like and it's a bill we can all be proud of. It will modernize our system or for a path to citizenship for hardworking people in our communities, reunite families, increase opportunities for legal immigration and ensure America remains the powerhouse for innovation and a beacon of hope to refugees around the world. I can tell you is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. But I must say that beyond enhancing security and improving management of the southern border, our legislation also finally addresses the push factors forcing so many families to flee Central America in the first place. Transnational crime, violence, corruption, poverty, lawlessness, the prior administrations. Naive fixation on the wall failed to alleviate these horrific conditions. We must address the Underlying root causes driving migration and create safer processes for those in danger to apply for asylum. That's how we stop ourselves from winding up in the exact same place down the road, and that's what this bill does. Now there are some in Congress, I'll say from both parties who argue against going big on immigration reform. Some still believe the answer lies and blocking all legal channels of our immigration system until we get our house in order. Others say we should leave the bigger, tougher questions for another day, pursuing narrow reforms that nibble at the edges and leave millions of people behind. Personally, I couldn't disagree more with both approaches. That from Senator Bob Menendez, Democrat from New Jersey, the chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The bill does have the support of President Biden issue his statement earlier today, available on the White House

Senate Holds Confirmation Hearing For Trump's New Pick For Ambassador To Ukraine

Senate Holds Confirmation Hearing For Trump's New Pick For Ambassador To Ukraine

"Update now on two important diplomatic vacancies. One is the post of U. S ambassador to the Ukraine. The last woman who held that Senate confirmed job was a central figure in President Trump's impeachment. And now the president's pick for the job is facing some lingering question in his own confirmation hearing. NPR's Michelle Kelemen reports President Trump's ouster of the ambassador to Ukraine featured prominently in his impeachment trial. Marie Ivanovich face to smear campaign by Trump's private lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who had been pressing Ukraine to get dirt on Vice President Joe Biden. Senator Bob Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, says that's still happening. Giuliani Esteban, Savory Ukrainian characters have not let up their efforts to use Ukraine to interfere in U. S politics. Others in the Senate seem intent on amplifying their efforts. Menendez wants the new nominee, retired Lieutenant general Keith Dayton, to avoid playing into this and avoid any meetings with Giuliani. Senator I'm not going to commit to that, because I believe that as an ambassador, I would have the obligation to meet with any U S citizen and hear them out. It was a home. Dayton has been a defense attache in Moscow, a security advisor for the U. S on the Israeli Palestinian conflict, and, in recent years has run the George Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Germany. He's well versed on Ukraine, but his answers frustrated both Menendez and another Democrat Chris Murphy. So at the end of the hearing, he did offer this reassurance. Ify is the U. S ambassador and key Have any indication that there is any kind of election interference going on using Ukraine as a azalea ever to do that? I would, of course, report that directly to this committee. I think you have a right to know that I think I have an obligation to report that to Dayton says his priorities in the country, if confirmed, would be to help Ukraine fight corruption and beef up Ukraine's Navy and Air force. Next door in Belarus. The U. S is reviving diplomatic relations in part because of Russia's aggression. In Ukraine. Career diplomat Julie Fisher has been tapped to run the U. S embassy in Minsk. Our relationship with Belarus languish for more than a decade. But after Russia's illegal seizure and occupation of Crimea, and it's manufactured war in Ukraine stone best region, we began to see signs of interest from the Belarussian sign. Belarus recently bought US crude oil to decrease its dependence on Russia and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Minsk earlier this year. But the's warming ties will be tested by an election this Sunday, and Fisher face questions about that the first component to ensuring that we can continue to grow this relationship. Not see steps backward in the conduct of this presidential election. The long time ruler Alexander Lukashenko is facing a united opposition in the run up to this election, and his regime has been cracking down. There will be no international monitors, though Fisher says the U. S embassy will be watching the vote closely. What we are trying to get Johnny is basically to ensure that there is space to ensure their space for more than one voice. In this country. Lukashenko kicked out the less U. S ambassador to Belarus in 2008 after the US accused his government of human rights violations and tighten sanctions. Michelle Kelemen NPR NEWS Washington

Trump survives impeachment: US president cleared of both charges

"That all of this is done what happens now for the trump presidency. I mean for the rest of his term. How're you expecting it to be different than and it might have been well in a way? This is like a turbo charge for president trump because he survived this gauntlet this impeachment proceeding without without having to be removed from office. And therefore he's waking up feeling emboldened and empowered and feels a conviction that everything he does is right. He is at the strongest point politically today that he's been in some time. The Gallup poll has his approval rating at forty percent which is sending shivers through the Spines of Democrats Crafts Around the country there are good feelings in the country about the economy which continues to home along to report to you tonight that our economy is the best I it has ever been. He had a pretty powerful economic message in a state of the Union. Even though a lot of it was exaggerated and he made claims that are not true. Jobs are booming. Income Poverty is plummeting. Crime is falling confidences surging. It was a selling argument. It for reelection and our country is thriving and highly respected again and so we can expect I think the president into continue to to sound teams into seek retaliation against all of those. He felt have wronged him in. It's impeachment process with this acquittal. How is that likely to change the office of the Presidency broadly? It's a good question because the evidence about trump's activity in Ukraine is. There's no dispute dispute about what he did. The evidence is clear the testimony was clear. Trump himself has admitted on camera that he wanted the Ukrainian government to do an investigation into his political political opponent and in fact he called on the Chinese government to do the same so what he did is clear what happened is the Republicans in the Senate made a political calculation about out not removing him from office for it that what he did doesn't amount to an impeachable offense and I spent some time in the last days interviewing historians and they said this is a major watershed moment in our nation's history because the way the founders set up our government setup. Our Constitution was to punish and remove presidents. Who who do exactly what? Donald Trump has been proven to have done with Ukraine. This is a system of checks and balances and what's happened is the legislative branch under Republican. Look in control in the Senate is no longer holding the president accountable they're becoming an instrument to propel his power and perpetuate his power and that's concerning to historians it's concerning to legal experts and it certainly would set a precedent. I would imagine for future presidents who will say look if trump got away with this I can get away with it too and it is just an expansion of that sort of executive power which is troubling to those who study the framers and the Constitution. Do you think I mean with a different president. You know ten years twenty years from now our future executive branches likely to think back to this moment and say I can do this. It's okay I'm not going to get in trouble. You know. They they could and we may not even have to look to future presidents for that. President trump has another ten months seven months in office. He may have another four years beyond that and there's no telling what he might try to do going forward because he's escaped accountability this time in the Russia investigation. You know the Muller Team documented did all of these examples for really proven examples where the president sought to obstruct justice but did not charge him or indict him because he's a sitting president narrow justice assists department guidelines about that. Well the very next day after Robert Mueller testified in Congress about this trump picked up the phone and called the Ukrainian president asking for the favor the political favors so he the conclusion he drew from the Muller Investigation and his lack of any legal punishment in that regard was that he can get away with with what he wants to do. He's the president if he does it so be it and the Republicans in on Capitol Hill or are there to support and protect him. So can you talk us through. How the president's President's own lawyers argued that the Senate basically doesn't have the power to to check the president one of the most striking moments in the president's defense came when one of his lawyers? Alan Dershowitz a noted criminal lawyer you've seen him on. TV for years Came to the floor of the Senate and advanced an argument that a lot of legal experts that said was dubious every public official that I know believes that his election is in the public interest. And mostly right your elections in the public interest. He said if the president does something that will help his reelection therefore is in the best interest of the country and if if a president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest. He cannot be held or rather be impeached for for that action that cannot be the kind of quid pro. Quo that results in impeachment. And so that's a blanket. Excuse use for the president to do what he did with Ukraine but obviously anything else that the president deems to be in the interest of his reelection that is an argument that Dershowitz had to kind of walk back a little bit In in some comments he made the next day and he got a lot of heat from legal scholars who said that's just a completely baloney argument argument with no constitutional grounding but it is indicative. I think of how President Trump himself views his power and views his authority as the president and commander-in-chief founder and chief. Did we see a lot of senators latching onto that argument. A few did Actually the Republican senators of course but a few parroted the Dershowitz line came as a way of defending the president and saying basically he's president he can do whatever he wants for his reelection because getting him reelected is in the best interest of our country. What about the way that? The impeachment trial played out in the Senate. The fact that there were no new documents that there were no witnesses is that likely also to set. Its own kind of precedent for or the way that impeachment is handled in the future. Certainly we've only had an impeachment trial three times in our history and so there's not really a blueprint door protocol. Offer how to go about doing this. And and the Senate leaders along with the chief justice of the Supreme Court to kind of change and adapt the rules as they went along to figure out how this would work mark and the Democrats say this was a complete sham. Trial that Mitch. McConnell designed it from the get-go to move quickly to get to a very fast acquittal to turn the page to save trump into move on with the legislative business not to delve into the details. Not To really scrutinize the evidence. The most surprising thing I think watching the Sahlin fold the last few weeks that John Bolton came forward publicly or at least in the manuscript of his book which leaked out through the media with new information right. He's a first first hand witness to what the president wanted done and Ukraine. He offered to testify before the Senate or at least indicated he would if if asked. Here's somebody who could have come forward to provide a new to account that would have provided new evidence to this case and there was no interest among the Republican majority in the Senate to hear what he had to say. I don't believe the testimony is necessary. The house else managers have a burden of proof a burden of proof to prove their case they had fallen woefully short. We now have allegations from Mr Bolton. I think they would have more credibility if the allegations came from someone else. There is no new information in my opinion based on what John Bolton has known but today in an effort to generate interest in a book have selectively released. Information that that to me doesn't go beyond what we've seen in the seventeen witnesses who've already testify only two. Republican senators voted to allow witnesses. Mitt Romney and and Susan Collins of Maine came to what extent is the Senate giving up the power that they have to oversee the president of provide any kind of check on the president. Give us a sense of the power that's been given up with the smooth you know they've they've been giving up power to this president for three years now in in part because Republicans threat the party live in fear of him. He has such an intensity of support within the Republican base and approval rating among Republicans of eighty to ninety percent and he follows these things very closely and vows to retaliate and shows that he can punish people if they betray him across him. Just ask former Senator Jeff Flake or former senator Bob corker. So there's that fear factor in the Senate and and what they've done to adapt to that is is not to stand up to him not to ever say he's wrong and in turn. They're getting some of their agenda through right. They're getting tax cuts passed. They're getting a lot of conservative. Justices installed hold onto the federal judiciary. They feel like Mitch. McConnell certainly feels like this is an opportunity to advance the conservative agenda but they just need to placate eight trump and played a trump and keep him calm but in so doing they're giving up their power of accountability. And it's certainly not the way that the framers and the founders imagined Dr our system of government working in Democracy Phil Rocker is the White House. Bureau chief for the Post.

House Democrats Walk Out Of White House Syria Meeting, Accusing Trump Of 'Meltdown'

"But we begin with a white house meeting on turkey and syria and the presidential meltdown speaker pelosi says it produced she attributed the president's behavior imparted to the vote against him earlier today was shaken up by it and that's why we couldn't continue in the meeting because he it's just not relating to the reality of it on the part of the president was a meltdown sad to say the white house denies this saying the president was and i quote measured factual and decisive as for majority leader mcconnell when asked about his perceptions of the meeting he merely said and i quote make any observations in the meeting i don't have any to make now well heap may not have made any observations but it is not noticeable and notable that the silence top ally in the senate is not trying to refute speaker pelosi's account the president's son decision of poll special forces troops from their positions in northern syria greenland the invasion by turkey killing of kurds the escape vices prisoners and a land grab by syria's dictator bashar al-assad and his backers russia and iran today the president continued to claim it was all part of his master plan so our view the situation on the turkish border with syria to be for the united states strategically brilliant strategically brilliant though if he really believes that it is hard to understand or he sent a turkey's president with whom he had that fateful phone call last week the letter was allegedly sent three days after the call ended up president trump warns not to do the very thing he had made possible by announcing immediate abandonment of the kurds quoting now from this letter to air to on quote let's work out a good deal you don't want to be responsible for hiring thousands of people and i don't wanna be responsible for destroying the turkish economy and i will the letter is dated the ninth of this month that is the same day that turkish troops went into northern area encourage began being slaughtered and shortly thereafter isis fighters began escaping kurdish custody the president was asked about all of that today even after all you have seen isis prisoners freed all the humanitarian disaster you don't have any regret forgiving early on the green light to to invade i didn't give them a green life well did you tell as you just you know when you make a statement like that so deceptive just the opposite of agreement the opposite of a green light would i guess it'd be a red light or a red line a stern warning not to invade perhaps or decision not to pull the small number of american troops who were holding back the turks from invading an attack the kurds are allies in the fight against isis but the president didn't draw a line in the sand red or otherwise in fact in that same press conference today he says he expected the works to invade now president or the ones decision didn't surprise me because he's wanted to do that for a long time he's been building up troops on the the border with syria for a long time as you know so he expected the turks would invade he sees the troops building up on the border for long time and he decides to suddenly and without much warning remove the one obstacle to it US special forces who've been living with and fighting with and training the kurds doesn't that seem like a pretty clear example of a green light would look like that if this was all unexpected it this was all as expected i should say then why the threatening letter why the push for economic sanctions on what is after all a nato ally why send vice president and secretary of state to turkey tonight this is all going to plan and is strategically brilliant why the apparent rage the meeting this afternoon one answer is simple the president didn't see this coming or didn't care what happened there which seems to be the case if you listened to the way he describes our kurdish allies you have to say it nobody wants to say we're making the kurds look like they're angels we paid a lot of money to the kurds tremendous amounts of money we've given them massive russians and you know what it's wonderful they fought with us we paid a lot for them to fight with us they fought isis about eleven thousand awards were killed in that fight in addition to that on top of the casting the kurds inside the president also repeated his allegations that the kurds have intentionally released isis fighters from prisons an allegation he has offered no proof up just so you understand we were the ones that captured isis people let some go the opened a couple of doors to make us look is bad as possible claim has been called four falls by senior pentagon official who tells CNN the president quote falsely claiming that the SDS kerr words are letting isis prisoners out of prison is wrong because they're the people that defeated isis wrong because they are currently risking their lives to defend our forces wrong because they are fighting force that intends to eliminate their people because we greenlighted their operation earlier i spoke with senator bob menendez the ranking democrat on the senate foreign relations committee who was in that meeting with the president senator menendez you speaker pelosi said that the president had a quote meltdown down her words majority leader schumer said he was very nasty his word you yourself tweeted that listening to the president made you feel deeply concerned for the country can you talk about what happened in the meeting what you saw from the moment the president came in i would describe him as belligerent he's smackdown support of files on the table and said well you all asked for this meeting i reluctantly gave it to you and speaker pelosi say well with all due respect mr president i didn't ask for meeting with you we asked for a briefing on the secretaries of defense state intelligence to understand the consequences of the actions you took and then he said and let's end the meeting and she said well while i'm here as the speaker i have an obligation to tell you that the house just voted three hundred fifty some odd to i forget okay what the amount was but it was an overwhelming bipartisan vote to disapprove the actions that you took in syria and then he got that that devolved into that's nothing uh-huh hit job and the republicans and she said well many republicans joined us and then he called speaker pelosi a third rate politician he said that the kurds were nothing but communists and democrat all of us democrats who is seated there must be happy with that you know suggesting that we all subscribe to that view of being communists and then you know it just it was belligerent and and something i have never seen in twenty seven years here in congress and serving under four different presidents i've never seen a moment like this that's not how these meetings usually go no yeah well not with other presidents and i've had presidents from clinton to bush to obama and now trump i was in the white house with president bush and he is president we might have disagreements but one it was never disagreeable and always it was respectful and there was exchanges of views as i said to the president when i stayed after the speaker you're left and several others left there was president everybody here loves country nobody here loves it more than another but we can have a agreement as is evidenced by the fact that the house overwhelmingly with republicans voted disagree with you you're the commander in chief but i disagree with what you did and here's what i'm concerned about the consequences the reconstituting of isis i said i don't know if the military people tell you but there are you know you're inspector general at the department of defense says there's still fourteen to eighteen thousand isis fighters in syria if the ten thousand have been detained get unleashed and are freed you're talking about a potential fighting force about two thirty thousand that's a clear and present danger to the united states you've opened up a land bridge for iran to bring serious weaponry and to potentially attack our allies state of israel that's a huge risk and you know at the end of the day you've changed the political dynamics of the region with just one stroke said so and actions had on turkey had been absolutely nothing the turkish stock market went up the next day so you know this is this did he respond to that he he basically started saying that number one you know well we can destroy turkey's economy and but you don't wanna drive turkey into the russians which of course turkey's already been with the russians they've been buying the four hundred from the russians which is sanctionable on the US law he's also he's also just given russia a huge victory in syria they've been propping they've been supporting propping up the regime as well as iran to the point of view absolutely i mean look the the the big winners as as i said jessica the big winners are iran russia and and even turkey in this regard and so this letter that he handed out to all of us beginning which i if he hadn't handed it out himself i would have thought was not a real letter but basically a letter he wrote to air to one in turkey ah he wrote to urge to wanna turkey would you gave out to every member who is there basically strikes me as a letter to cover your backside because what he unleashed he now cannot recall and so you know i it's to try to respond to the incredible criticism it's an incredible letter the way it's written and believe me i'm reading about issues like that i've read it does not i mean it's not the kind of a letter thought he president united states would send to you know the president of turkey it it does not read as a i mean at one point i think it s sorta ends with you know don't be tough guy don't be a fool i'll call you later yeah that's how it ends and and it just is just it to me it was to be able to dock at first of all the letter is just an incredible letter the way it's it's it's dictate needed but it sounds like it's definitely dictated directly from him the way he thinks speaks and secondly it was to try to you know cover himself for what was unleashed with the turks going ahead and invading into northern syria and the consequences that flow thereafter i want to ask you about something else which sounds double we're we're told by a democratic source familiar with the meeting that senator schumer read a

Trump fires John Bolton as national security adviser

"We start with breaking news in the politics and president trump today firing his national security adviser Ambassador John Bolton the too long well documented history of disagreeing disagreeing on matters all the way up to today when the two had different takes on how Bolton ended up on the wrong side of the White House fence the president tweeting in part quote. I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions. According to John Bolton's tweet which came just twelve minutes later quote. I offered to resign last night in president trump said. Let's talk about it tomorrow. The news came just before a White House. Briefing that Bolton was was scheduled to attend secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin who both reportedly clashed with Bolton behind the scenes. Were notably all smiles at this briefing everything a source close to the administration tells me that Bolton's exit is the result of quote Ed Administration with dysfunctional processes and bureaucracy one that attracts people who we're willing to make the big compromise to work for trump so they are especially cutthroat. It's a real snake pit and it's run by quote in Iraq. President who is hard to manage anew brings out the worst sensibilities people add it all up in the source says quote John Bolton standing for principals such as it's a bad idea to invite the Taliban to Camp David Well. Oh he didn't have a chance. CNN's Kaitlan Collins starts off now from the White House John Bolton the firing in came via twitter as president trump announced today he informed his National Security Advisor. His services are no longer needed at the White House but but in a surreal moment twelve minutes later Bolan denied he was fired tweeting. I offered to resign last night and president trump said let's talk walk tomorrow. Bolton was seen by CNN cameras outside the West Wing this morning after sources said he got into a bitter disagreement with trump the the night before the alternative was the White House and you wouldn't have been happy with that either. They argued over the president's decision to host Taliban leaders at Camp David a a meeting trump later cancelled John Bolton's priorities and policies just don't line up with presidents bulletins pushback inviting the Taliban on US soil and allegedly tiddly telling reporters about his feelings after may have been the last straw with one source telling CNN the leaking is what got him but in recent weeks Bolton had found himself isolated from the president iced out by the chief of staff and barely speaking to the secretary of State there were many times ambassador Assar Bolton. I disagree that's to be sure. Bolton was scheduled to be at this afternoon's briefing alongside Mike Pompeo and Steven Mnuchin the president's view of the Iraq war and and embassador bulletins was very different but after the president's tweet a White House official said Bolt is no longer in the building. I like conflict. I like having two people with the different points of view trump once claimed he liked the chaos of a west wing with multiple opinions but he grew irritated by Bolton's hardline positions in recent weeks. I actually temper John which is pretty amazing now. Jacob President says he's going to announce his fourth national security adviser next week until then Bolton's is deputy. Charlie Kupperman will takeover the National Security Council but I do want to flag one other bit of reporting we got that may have shown that Bolton was on the way out apparently currently when they were at the g seven summit in France just a few weeks ago he was tentatively scheduled to build some of the Sunday shows defending the administration's policies but sources tell C. in the bulletin was uncomfortable and didn't want to go on to defend some of the president's policies including on Russia which had become a big topic of the summit though people close to and said he simply thought that people like Steven Mnuchin or Larry cudlow were better suited at defending the president's policies on tariffs but jake of course requirement of working in this White House as you've got to be able to defend the president on television even the president's post to have Russia back in the g seven Kaitlan Collins. Thanks so much joining me now is Senator Bob Menendez a Democrat from New Jersey. He's the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee senator. Thanks for joining us your reaction to John Bolton being fired. Look the Unser Mona's way that Bolton was fired at stupid this functionality the whiplash that goes on in terms of you know national security and foreign policy look at the record this is going to be the upcoming the fourth national security advisor the Third Secretary of defense the Secretary Second Secretary of state the Second Second Director of National Intelligence and the list goes on and so the situation room shouldn't be the place in which the president plays his this reality TV show of the apprentice so it's it's very hard for our foreign policy and national security both with our allies as well as sending messages to our adversaries by the dysfunctionality that the president has in the White House. I'm no fan of John Bolton. He's very bellicose in some of his views but you need a national security advisor who's was willing to give you alternative views and other realities and not just yes men in in such a critical position. Well I want to ask you about Bolton specifically because one of your colleagues league's Republican senator who declined to be named told CNN that Republican senators quote clone to people like Bolton on Capitol Hill relying on him to know what's really going on at the White House seeing him I suppose as a non-sycophantic grown up one of the proverbial guardrails what do you think well clearly although I don't agree with many of embassador Bolton's views and he has a bit of a bellicose way about him in terms of foreign policy and national security but he was a voice that would give alternative realities or real realities to the president for his consideration and I know that in many choices for example like the precipitous move in Syria which would have left those who fought alongside with us in in the Lurch that voices like his were also you know surrounded by members of the Senate who who felt this was a disaster astor in the making so I think there are those particularly on the Republican side who felt that he was some sort of stability in terms of foreign policy there are many on my side of the aisle who thinks that that accurately you know he was a bit of a warmonger but what this says Moore I think it's less about Bolton and more about the president the president has no stability in in terms of national security and foreign policy just cut his legs from his Afghan. you know envoy his. Middle East peace envoy just laughed. He's got nobody with Kim. I'm John Own to deal with it so it's it's a disaster at a time that we have to one of the most challenging foreign policy scenarios in the world that I've seen in nearly thirty years. I know you disagree with Bolton on on a lot but there are areas where I imagine you you do have some agreement. A Bolton was skeptical of the President Meeting with Kim Jong Hoon skeptical of the president's offer to have a no strings attached meeting with the Iranian President Ruhani. He was against the Taliban being invited to Camp David. I wonder what this might mean for the administration going forward when it comes to policy and when it comes to people in the president's inner circle who are willing to say you know what Mr President. That's a bad idea I think those people are few and far between if there are any left in this administration. I think the only way you survive in this administration is by I saying yes Mr President even if you believe it's a horrible idea including for the national security and interest of the United States in its people and so that's one of the challenges of this administration administration the reality is is that this is why I believe that Congress under its Article One role is more more important than ever before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee the House Foreign Relations Committee the intelligence committees the Armed Services Committee need to have a robust oh bus vigilant row using their article one authorities to try to pursue a foreign policy that the administration ultimately will will limit the risks that they pose in terms of US foreign policy and national security interests oil prices fell almost immediately after trump tweeted about Bolton Why do you think that is. What are the ramifications might this well? I think that those who believe that Ambassador Bolton who was an advocate of for example example the potential of an attack on Iran because of its nuclear program and the instability that that would create in the region maybe be those of us that now there's less of a bellicose view as it relates to Iran and the region you know I would assume that that's speculation on their airport and that's why some of the prices fell all right Democratic Senator Bob Menendez of the Garden State New Jersey. Thanks so much appreciate it. Sir Thank

"Including senators. Bob, Casey of Pennsylvania, Chris coons of Delaware and Doug Jones of Alabama, President Obama who has said he has no plans to endorse anyone right now did praise Biden through a spokesperson who said, quote, President Obama has long said that selecting Joe Biden as his running mate in two thousand eight with one of the best decisions he ever made I asked not to endorse does one of this. We should whoever wins his nomination should winning on their own merits. And his Bob Costantini tells us President Trump had plenty to say about the former VP the president has ignored many of the Democrats who've announced, but Joe Biden's high polling numbers among the crowded field was bound to bring a reaction on Twitter and here it is welcome to the race. Sleepy. Joe? I only hope you have the intelligence long in doubt to wage wages successful primary campaign. It will be nasty you'll be dealing with people who truly have some very sick and demented ideas. But if you make it I will see you at the starting gate sick and demented ideas is Mr. Trump's way. Describing plans on various topics from other Democrats in the race. The president re tweeted messages from Republican chair Ronna McDaniel who wrote Joe Biden, literally can't hide from the economic successes of that real Donald Trump's administration and don't let Biden take us backwards. There was also a re tweet of a video the party had prepared against Biden, the only other democratic contender who has gotten so much attention from President Trump is the man he labels crazy Bernie, and he called into Fox News Hannity program. Thursday night asked about Biden Joe over the years. He's not the brightest lightbulb in the group. I don't think, but he has a name that they know they are coming on with two little cute statements about made the cute statements were the former vice presidents trying to make the case.

The Menendez cut from yesterday Senator Bob Menendez is the one with the underage girls, and the the doctor pal who's in prison and all of that good stuff. He was on with wolf Blitzer.

The Democrats are making life more dangerous even CNN they were they were sort of cringing when they were saying it Alison Cammarata yesterday. And so on. And then Senator Menendez responded.
