"She continued working on behalf of all those americans who weren't being given a seat at the table now shirley chisholm may not have won her bid for president of the united states but in the good fight the book she later wrote about her campaign. She acknowledged that honestly winning. Wasn't the reason. She ran iran. Because someone had to do it. I in this country every body is supposed to be able to run for president. But that's never been really true. Iran because most people think the country is not ready for a black candidate not ready for a woman candidate the next time a woman runs or a black a jew or anyone from a group that the country is not ready to elect to attack highest office. I believe he or she will be taken seriously from the start. The door is not open yet but it is a jar shirley chisholm died in two thousand and five three years before she could see barack obama get elected the first black president of the united states and fifteen years before she could witness kamala harris got elected as the first black and first female vice president before shirley passed away. She was asked how she'd like to be remember after she was gone her response. I'd like them to say a shirley. Chisholm had guts. That's how i like to be remembered. And thanks her fighting spirit. Her fearless determination to forge her own path. She absolutely will be everyone. Thank you so much for welling with us this week..

"Dickinson read An excerpt from Shirley Chisholm is memoir on Box and on Bost. American idea of going on the campaign trail has evolved over time. Today, we might conjure images of candidates eating fried foods at the Iowa State Fair or making gaffes in Michigan. But believe it or not. In the early 19th century, we didn't have airplanes or Twitter. Not to mention Iowa or Michigan. Back then the whistle stop tour was just taking shape and the breathless sort of journalistic coverage we enjoy now just wasn't possible. Give you a sense of how far things have come in terms of coverage and the tone of that coverage. Let's revisit the contentious campaign of 18 28, John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson engaged in a bruising contest full of accusations of bigamy, cannibalism. And worse, broadsides were more likely than objective reporting, and the press often felt like partisan propaganda. The following are excerpts from the pro Adam's newspaper National Journal on the pro Jackson Telegraph. Deal with one of the tamer accusations of the day. And Andrew Jackson was nearly illiterate. The National journal. Mr Adams is a scholar. Is he to be superseded by a man of no education? Mr. Adams is a state Smith. Is he to give way to a mere soldier? Mr Adams has been bred in the Cabinet or in the school were national laws and interests are objects of study. Is he Make room for a man bread in the camp experienced only in civil Broyles and who has resigned every civil appointment on account of his admitted incompetency to fill it. I imagine that was written by an angry, judgmental mustache. And this is the telegraph. History abound, with splendid examples of men remarkable for great qualities who could not even read their own language, much less write it with accuracy but to argue against the presumption of General Jackson's fitness for the presidency because he cannot spell his absurd. We care. Not if you spell Congress with the K. He may not withstanding, understand the rights and duties of that body or of the people or himself as well as if he spelled it correctly. And that presumably was written by a sentient hickory stick. So maybe journalists do a bit more of Journalism on the trail these days. Still, as you can hear, some arguments about a candidate's fitness for office have remained pretty much the same. It's too bad because if we could agree on a basic presidential spelling test Primary season could be a lot shorter. When we return hundreds, Thompson.

Helen Reddy: 'I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar' Singer Dies at 78

"Year before Helen Reddy was diagnosed with dementia, the singer explained in an interview with Houston Public media. Where I am woman came from, I guess Heaven, you know came to me and it wouldn't leave me was simply a phrase that over and over I am strong. I am invincible. I am woman. And I thought, Well, this is has to be a soul. I am woman. Hear me roar in numbers too big to ignore Helen Reddy this sport into a show business family in Australia. She came to the US after winning a singing competition in 1966. Her career was just beginning to take off when she decided she had to record I am woman, even though her label Capitol Records thought it was too strident to feminists ready, and her manager husband, more convinced the song would speak to a new generation of independent woman. Without any support from the label. They worked the phones trying to get radio stations to play it. It was so hard it was so hard, Helen Reddy and that 2014 interview. You know, so many radio stations would say, Well, we're we're already playing a female record. It took nearly a year for I'm women to work its way up the charts and become a number one hit. When ready, then won a Grammy for best female performance. She thanked her manager husband, I would like to thank Jeff wrong because he makes my success possible. And I would like to thank God because she makes everything possible, calling God she a national television was audacious. But remember, this was 1972. The same year, the Equal Rights Amendment passed the Senate and Shirley Chisholm ran for president. The Supreme Court made its decision in Roe vs Wade just a month after I am Woman reached number one on and I am women has legs over the years has been covered over and over with the cultural impact Illustrated in part by the gleeful karaoke version, sung by the main characters in the 2010 movie sex in the city, too.

News coverage of freedom summer shed a light on the white supremacy and police brutality that black Americans face. We. Don't Tuesday night the finding of three bodies in graves at the site of a damn near Philadelphia Mississippi where three civil rights workers disappeared six weeks ago. Over the past few weeks we have been experiencing another freedom summer. Minnesota are saying to people in New York two people in California to people in Memphis to people all across this nation enough is enough cell phone videos and social media are once again providing glaring spotlight on the inequities and injustice that are woven into the fabric of American society. In this special season of the browns to politics, we are diving into the past in how is impacting our present and future. For protests to political campaigns and youth involvement change is in the air and the fight for liberation continues. We'll be hearing from some of the Black Women at the forefront at today's movement who are fighting for change in making history to ensure that we have justice for all. Her name was even floated as a potential. VP. Pick for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's. It is no surprise that would ever congress is debating issues of equity and justice. Congress will lease voice is one of the strongest and most prominent today we talk about her work as a college student, a member of the Black Panther Party and what Congress is, do we to fight systems of oppression to reshape reimagined our political world? Congresswoman Barbara Lee thank you so much for joining us and happy belated birthday. Breaking very good happy with you. I'm really excited to talk to you today and for our listeners, the congresswoman is such a legend and all of her work that she has done in. Congress over the years especially for Black Brown and indigenous communities by I have to ask you this question because it's something that I just wanted to talk to you about for so long is. You were a part of the Black Panthers. What was it like being? Black Panther I actually was not a member of the Black Panther Party I was what they call the community worker community workers had a lot of responsibilities as the Black Panther. Party. Members and remember the Black Panther Party began as a result of police Gupta brutality and the African American community. I mean. They stood down the police because things, police, murders, police Retali- as we know now were occurring then and they were the first organization that really took the police on, and so it was out of that that the Black Panther party formed, there's the Bible programs because it was not only an organization that address police brutality, but it was an organization that addresses chemic-. Racism and poverty. and. So what I did, and which was really phenomenal work and I was a single mother on public assistance with two little boys. I helped sell newspapers like math a newspaper on street corners I actually participated in the breakfast program for children who didn't have whose parents didn't have enough money to buy food and that's actually the breakfast programs from the federal government. Actually. Started as a result of the of the models that the Black Panther party you. I also really worked with you. He knew then did the research on his book Revolutionary Suicide. It was really phenomenal project I got to know Huey Newton Bobby Seale, Elaine Brown, Erica Huggins Joan Kelly, who just passed away and many of the leadership of the black. Panther party because community worker and student I was very involved in a lot of the work with party members. I actually brought Shirley Chisholm got involved in politics through the first presidential the first. Time. A black woman ran for president and that was sure children who was the first African American woman elected to Congress and so the Black Student Union president I invited her to come to milk college where I was attending and I got involved in her campaign by herb insisting that I register the vote and I had a class go because I didn't WanNa work in any of those campaigns. Well, bottom line is working her campaign and got the Black Panther party really involved in voter registration efforts. I. Was the one that went and asked Huey Noonan Bobby Seale to consider becoming politically active around early Chisholm campaign and they did. So I worked on all phases of the black. Panther. Party and all the different divisions I actually bag groceries. You know the panthers had a whole ten point program which again, the Free Breakfast program for the kids They started the Community Health Center Movement by instituting the George Jackson free medical clinic they did sickle cell tests. In fact, there was the Black Panther party that raises awareness about sickle cell disease as a as a disproportionate impact African Americans Fast Board Twenty Twenty people in the African American community and Black and Brown news still struggling disproportionately as it related to food security food desert healthcare disparities, unequal education. I. Helped. Start. Actually I wrote the first proposals for the Black Panther Party community learning center. They establish a Black Panther party school and so I was very instrumental in working on that project. So I did a lot of work with the Black Panther Party and I can just speak to how phenomenal they were and how necessary they were and how we should as we move forward. You know there's this Symbol in a gun and Andy. In government in Ghana called and Copeland. If the bird beautiful bird looking back holding an egg in her mouth and like in order to move forward in order to blackboard and you have to look back, we have to know our history we know where we've been and we have to build upon that so that we can move forward it. Now a wonderful young people in the Movement for Black, flags, or dreamers all the movements that are taking place are a continuation of what I see as the civil rights movement of of today, as well as what Black Panther Party actually started as it relates to stand down and and thing that that policing in our community. chain stop disproportionate killing black, and Brown people

"Bill and Senator Harris coming from a law enforcement background. We're in the moment where we're still facing, you know the ramifications of the uprisings who saw this summer? And people want to see more. Can't let let's talk a moment about Shirley Chisholm famously on bought in Boston, She was the first black woman elected to the house and then ran for president in 1972. What affected just seeing a black woman run for president at that time have on future generations, including someone like Senator Harris. I'm so glad you brought Shirley Chisholm because I just had a story where I actually spoke with Hazel Deuce. Who's this long time activist 88 years old and Steve walked me through that moment of when she thought sure, Lynch's um get on that stage in 1972 in Miami and for her for so many black women. It was more than just the historical moment. It was a moment of hope. A moment that they knew would open more doors a moment that they knew that eventually would potentially lead to opportunity for someone to come through, like humble hairs, And that's really the legacy of chisel. That's the legacy of Fannie Lou Hamer. That's the legacy of all of these black women who have come before Camilla hairs and I just I thought it was so pointed last night when she said that as Americans, we all stand on their shoulders. And that's true because once again black women have been at the forefront of these fights for so long. It is just now that people have fully began to realize their power in the strength that they bring with them to this table. Cat. The pandemic overshadows everything about this election in this convention, and Senator Harris spoke to that last night, connecting it to the work we need to do to fight racism. This virus. It has no eyes. And yet it knows exactly how we see each other. And how we treat each other. And let's be clear There is no vaccine for racism. We've got to do the work. Yes. And look, we know through my reporting to the reporting of some of the others that this pandemic has disproportionately impacted black Americans and other people of color. They have been hit hard Really by what I've been noting as three crises going on at the same time, which is the health implications of people dying, which is the economic fallout from the pandemic, people losing their jobs, unable to put food on the table for their families. But then you couple that with this moment that we're in with this reckoning around racism in this country. And so you can't talk about any of this without noting that race is at the center of this election. Racism is at the center of this country, and I think was senator Hairs did last night was really make sure that we brought that to the forefront and recognize that in order for this nation to move forward, it's gonna have to grapple with this long history of racism in this country. There's no other way for If the Harris Biden ticket is successful in November, as you mentioned, there will be no more black women in the Senate. For both of you. Why do we need more black women leaders and how would this country be different if that were a reality? I think that the reality is that representation does not utter and regardless of how you feel about the representation, black women deserve to be at every level represented for the work that they do, and that is very obvious in the Democratic Party. And I think that if Senator Harris makes it to the White House that her absence will be felt, I think she brings her prosecutorial background whenever we see her at a hearing, and we will lose that, and it is a shame that in this historic moment where we're celebrating such a game that we have to always be thinking about what we're losing, there's always a sacrifice and I think that that will be underscored, No matter what happens. And for me, I think this is an important point. You know? I spoke with Dr Jonetta Cole, who, of course, was first black woman president of the Historical Hbcu Bowman. And something that she said really stuck with me, she said. If you see one, you can be one. And I'm saying that because for every little black girl in his country for really every little girl in this country when they see someone like senator hairs when they see someone like Stacey Abrams It just lets them know that they too, can do that. But everything that could just agree with her because while this is a moment of celebration, we can't fully declared that it's a victory because America has yet to see its first black woman governor. In his 2020 think about that and let that sink in. We still have so much more work to do. Co. Bragg is a reporter for the 19th and Cat. Stafford is an Associated Press reporter on race and ethnicity. Thank you both So much for being here. Thank you. Thanks..

"At Stanford University. Very fasting of conservative thinking, going back for decades. How do you feel about that? Is there an expectation that women of color always progressive? Are you happy to get conservative women of color and power too? You know, black women are a monolithic voting black. We're not a monolithic leadership. For me a diverse decision making table regardless of where it fits in my my my political ideology still makes better decisions and so being able to ensure that if we're looking at this, just from a from a two political idealism spectrum conservative to progressives, we need to be pushing both spectrum's to ensure that their leadership looks Divers and looks like America and then for me is that I have no problem being able to be in a brave conversation where we put push our counterparts to be better on issues or center center, our communities in those issues So no, I think that we should ensure that each decision making table is diverse, so that she still has unique, a unique Experience as a black woman in America that she's bringing to a table that would without her leadership, be void of a discussion about race and gender and another person that you've helped campaign Letitia James, the first black woman to Vienna to York attorney general, she took on Exxon Mobil and lost Tell us about her and some of the other. New crop of leaders. You're you're supporting. We saw a very different congressional glass in 2018. You know, behind my shoulder is Shirley Chisholm, the first black woman to ever be elected to Congress in 1968. So we're 51 years and she you know, became the first black woman to serve in that body. She went on four years later, literally 48 years. From like. Today she was preparing for the 1972 Democratic convention, where she would go in her name be entered into nomination from the floor. So there's been gains around black leadership since then. N gains for black women, But the 23 million black woman this country are underrepresented in under served in this tribe that we've seen since Shirley Chisholm is in through higher heights, and I worked with the center for American Women in Politics. You can't actually build a blueprint for if you don't know where you've been Sankofa, right? And so when you look at black women's leadership In 2014 There was only one to black woman elected in serving as mayors of top 100 cities, so enter to 2020 and what we see on the national stage are seven black woman leading major cities and, frankly being more progressive on how they're approaching covert 19 than their counterparts across the country in our country's history. We've Only had 15 black woman serve as statewide executives. Leticia James being one right And here is a woman who is using her position as a New York state attorney. General toe actually put push innovation and progressive policies that would be implemented nationwide. And so she again entered Koba 19 recognizing the racial disparities both from a health perspective. From an economic perspective and I think has leading well is to circle right back to where surely show them In 2018 we elected the largest number of women ever to serve in Congress, including the largest number of black woman to ever serve that body. We now have 25 black women serving in Congress, one African American woman in the U. S Senate, which is Kamala Harris, with only elected to in our country's history. In 1972. Ah, Carol Moseley Braun and now Kamala Harris and we have 24 black woman serving in the House of Representatives. But what's unique about the freshman class is they were their leadership was built for time. Is this. So? Who did we know that in 2018 we would elect Lorna Underwood, a nurse. Who's uniquely qualified to sit at a table as we determine how we are preparing in the intersection of racial Lynn's around health disparities who knew that in 2018 when we since Johanna Hes not only a teacher, but the 2016 teacher of the year to serve in Congress that she would be sitting at the table that as we envision how we home school? Children across the country that we would ensure that there would be a clear discussion around the inequalities of broadband in technology for our Children's. I think the black women you know that are serving in Congress are uniquely Using their voices in their leadership in a way that centers the communities of color in the way that talks about the intersectionality of the very issues that were at the you know, unfortunate bottom of every indicator At the end of the day, I'll India at this is that the road to 2020 is built on the engagement of black voters and at the center of the over engagement of On black voters are black women. When we fire up a black woman, she doesn't go to the polls alone. She raise a house trouble, her church and her story that is too traditional for my mother did it So the day she died. She called me and my brothers to ensure that we voted in election right and we are more than ever leaning into We want our return on our voting investment, and that is in the form of policies and directly impact black women for families in our communities. And we are absolute continuing to claim seats at decision making table so that we can create a country and move it high. Right, Glenda, you talk about creating space for grace and having this difficulty you said brave conversation because it's you know, we're not comfortable talking about race in this country. And part of that is what words to use. You were born in the U. S. A. Your father's from Jamaica. What are your thoughts on? How white people should say. Should we say black? Should we say African American? Help me help me understand? So the African diaspora is is diverse. And you know, I am blessed to have been raised by parents that believed that it is okay to have raised conversations. So you know, higher heights. We have built the political home for black woman's leadership. And to be clear it's center. It is. It was found it formed by black women. It's centers black woman, But we recognized that this democracy is more than black women. And so part of the reason why we use the analogy of being a Home for those who know the tradition of black women, my grandmother regardless of how much money she had or had not didn't have. There's always an extra seat at our dinner table. Right. And it didn't matter who are brothers. My brothers and I would bring home. You know, we grew up in Connecticut. We always joke around. For some people like there are black people in Connecticut and, you know, Although we grew up in a black community, we were bused to an affluent white school districts.

"And their anger has started what became movements that changed laws that change the constitution that changed the power structures in the United States, and yet we have never been encouraged to see or value their anger as politically potent in the way that we are still told to value, the anger of white guys in diners, read any political coverage today, and you will see a kind of anger valorize, and it is the anger of a diner guy. In fact, your book opens with that powerful image of those seventy two convention in Miami with angry woman, being just blatantly ignored by the journalists, you know. Which is very fascinating. You go back to that time, and just how Shirley Chisholm even so ignored, you know, nobody wants to look at I mean, at the beginning of the beginning of the cavenaugh hearings, before, he's accused of assault by Christine Bazi Ford there were protesters in the chamber the first day, standing and shouting, in fact, many of them shouting about abortion, right? Because they know what's about to go down. And there's one woman who shouting about healthcare and the repeal of ObamaCare, and she shouts without ObamaCare. I will die and Orrin Hatch, the Republican Senator who has been on that committee long enough that he was also on the committee for Nita Hill's. Testimony says to this protester or says about her get this loud, mouth out of here. We shouldn't have to deal with the idea. There is an investment in shutting up not listening to an ignoring the voices of, of women who are angry about inequality and injustice, because there is a knowledge that, that anger can start movements that is why it's not an. Accident that we're not encouraged to listen to the anger. You talk about black anger. We talk about female anger, the anger of those who have been kept on the margins for so long. There is a strategic reason why we are taught to fear or be suspicious of or laugh at that anger and not take it seriously. It's because the people who have power know that in fact that anger of those on the margins who are righteously angry that anger has the power to catalyze the very movements that have changed who has power in this country. That is it's, it's the abolition movement. It is the suffrage movement. It is the civil rights movement. It is the labor movement. They start with anger and berry often the anger of women. From Dolores would the on the way down. It's interesting because in the political context, you know, that's that seems to have a direct correlation to shut something down. So you don't have progress or whatever that is. But what do you think just men in general are frayed of angry women because I think the word afraid is the proper word, but maybe there's a better word there, but, but it seems that seems to be the thread in a lot of this to that..

It was inspired by Shirley Chisholm and her launch for the presence. Tom Lehrer us, right? Just right. She'd shows the anniversary the fortieth that averse to the day of Shirley Chisholm that now segment to announce that she was going to run. And I think that I could only think that surely as well as I got to know MRIs what we would call it because I was a kid.

And now we're going to see if camera ariza's is Willie Mays Hank Aaron. John door. It's I I remember her as a child growing up in New York City. I'm reminded of the fact that. There were a lot of really interesting urban politicians in the seventies who did not conform to standard issue labels and positions. And Shirley Chisholm was one of these people who transcended I mean, while she was deep very much Representative of both her gender and Jerez. She was a formidable person in her own right at somebody without needing them. She was smart. She was incredibly sort of focused when she when she made these appearances that I saw on TV in New York, and and there were urban city politicians all over the country in the seventies. Who had this quality like they weren't? You just didn't put them in a box and say, well, she's for this group. And he's for that group. They were they were more interesting than that. Something that our politics lacks. Now people see much more homogenized than they did them. I read we talked in our last block that axios is reporting the President Trump is most concerned, or at least visor telling him he should be most concerned about Joe Biden. But you've brought up comma Harris may here from another big candidate sometime today. Cory Booker reportedly getting into the race. Elizabeth Warren looking at it. We have all these people, and they're all calling you before they get into the race in asking for your advice. What are you telling them about running against Donald Trump? I think that what they have to do is. I the first thing I ask all of them as why do you want to be president don't go by your political strategy? Go buy your vision you've have to give America of vision. Which is the opposite of what Trump is doing. Don't try to out Trump Trump give us a vision. Give us something to drive toward to bring us out of this kind of of atmosphere that we're in now where people are going. Day by day wondering what the country stands for and whether we're going to survive it. And that's the advice. I give them Joe Biden spoke at our national action that we're model king breakfast last week. I think he may run, but I think whoever gives the country of vision because this president has not been able to do you have a president that noon represents one thing at six o'clock represents the opposite. The bible says where the people perished without a vision. We have no vision visionary is going to win the White House. And it can't just be. I'm not Donald Trump is what you can't be anti Trump.

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. And and I thought you saw the lasting hard feelings as a result of these very tough negotiations with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who did appear at the last minute was uncertain at the signing ceremony today in Buenos Aires. But had some strong words for President Trump, and you've had this amazing spectacle. What have we taken to get here of the United States going after candidate one of its closest allies, David your takeaway, so far from the g twenty well, so far the image of Muhammad bin Salman and Putin doing an end zone dance together is the big takeaway video circulating of them doing a hi fi. Looking very cheer an image. It's a symbol. It's a symbol of an era in which the wolves of the global international order are on the March and undeterred because there's no one. Deter them. And so that's one thing. The second thing I think is the China US relationship and this thank heaven is not a Trump related story to me the big change in US China relations is that we used to have people who were friends of China somewhere, foes of China and the foreign policy establishment sort of split. That's no longer the case. Now, everyone sees China as a challenge, but as a foe Hank pulse in the former treasury fare gave a speech in Singapore recently in which he laid that very clearly and he was very much in the camp. So when Trump talks tough on China trade, he now has a lot of people who are not normally his friends actually thinking he's doing the right thing me loop.
