Thank you so much for joining me. . So from what I understand in order to write this book, , you spent a lot of time with president trump kind of watching him do business the way trump worked and lived his life was on the phone, , and if since I was writing about deals, and , since he was talking about those deals on all his phone calls, , that was a way I do the book. . So you basically spent how how many months just like listening to trump do business i. . spent almost two year maybe nine months. . What kinds of calls would you be on property owners like everything everything bankers, , lawyers the? ? Nedia. . When did you observe? ? Being on all these phone calls them one of the things I observed that his primary style was too often positively blow you down. . He would say anything if it advanced his cause and then he would keep saying it and saying and saying you know that's the way he is. . Now he's exactly the same. . was there like a deal that sort of stands out in your mind is kind of like A. . Classic trump deal. . Well, , yeah. . I think the deal to build trump tower. . That's one of his most profitable I mean remains one of his most profitable. . Big X. . successful deal for him. . and. I . would say that. . Never say this, , but here I go. . There were flashes of brilliance of intuitive brilliance in the making of that deal. . Now, there , were some very awful things he did in the making of that deal but. . He really did do a remarkable job of. . Gathering together a very on fantastic. . You know fantastic location, , the rights that made it possible to build a building of that size like the permits and the loans and all that stuff. . Yeah. . To get by air rights from tiffany the labyrinthine process you go through with the Planning Commission and with the city to be able to do it, , you'll keep put together the pieces of that deal and then he did something in the lobby that I think. . One tremendous attention was there weren't many indoor malls at the time certainly not filled with goal the the kind of marble he used and it it did become a massive tourist attraction. . One of the things that surprised me when I was learning about your journey with him was how very open he was with you were you surprised at how secretive he was about his tax returns look. . He knows that not paying taxes is not going to be <hes> impressive or appealing to other people particularly among people who make are less than he does, , which is virtually everyone. . When they after tax and then it's reported that he pays none. . That's something. . It's worth keeping secret. . The thing that strikes me about the taxes though is you know honest tax returns it's like the reason he's not paying taxes is because he's losing all this money and. . I mean companies, , people do this all the time they write stuff off against their taxes. . Why. . Would he hide it? ? Is it the idea of showing that his businesses are losing money? ? Well, , that would be awful. . That's awful to him in many ways. That's . worse than all the rest. . Really yes. . To have it be seen that he is not the businessman he has claimed to be is would be to him a sign of. . Failure weakness vulnerability that would be or is almost intolerable to him. . What about his relationship with money p money's different things to different people you know for some people it's freedom for some people at security. . What is money for president trump a direct freshen his value. . He defines his personal worth. . By is networks. . But. . Just to go back to the taxes I mean if you just take something as simple as that deduction of seventy thousand dollars for haircuts over a period of year. . Yes. . This is so obviously among many many other deductions he takes. . He did it because he's already could get away with it was his approach to taxes back. Then . did you see any like deals that again in your head involved taxes? ? He looked at it as <hes> you know as a transaction of course, , he looked at it as if I can avoid actress then I'm going to do it which by the way to some degree or another. . All real estate developers do did you enjoy spending time with President Trump nobody knew that? ? That's that's crate. . In a certain way, , I did I was sort of I would say. . Being around trump in that era because that was probably a high point in his career you know trump our just open yeah. . He was an international brand. . He was known everywhere. . There were times when the sheer adrenaline of being around this guy, , the fact that he was in some way. So . sort of larger than life had a certain kind of intoxicating poll I. . Mean I do have to ask like how how much money did you make off the book? ? I think probably a million half dollars or Maybe maybe more. . Though. . I do want to say the book is earned somewhere around a quarter of a million dollars since trump became president I ever earned. . So is he and I have given all of that money away and give it away specifically to. . Causes that defend the kinds people who trump. . Ignores, , immigrants, , and poor people and environmental causes. . Because I did come to see that money as blood money. . Do you think that president trump would be president trump if it hadn't been for the art of the deal? ? If I'm being brutally honest by guesses. . No if I hadn't. . Helped to set the frame, , the fictional frame that the art of the deal does about who donald trump is. . It's much less likely that he would have been able to work his way up the ladder in the way that he did like all three of the casinos that I wrote about the art of the deal went bankrupt <hes>. . So you know most of the deals in the art of the deal that we that we wrote about as if they were great successes were actually failures. .

"Back in 2016 talking about how Donald Trump doesn't pay federal income taxes. Or maybe he doesn't want the American people. All of you watching tonight to know that he's paid nothing in federal taxes because the only years that anybody has ever seen A couple of years when he had to turn them over to state authorities when he was trying to get a casino license, and they showed he didn't pay any federal income tax. Drunken includes bond for Donald Trump. How does he do it? Teach me I need Trump. I need Trump to pass the plug. I think that article to my financial folks yesterday spoke to my brother Humble and I said, I demand more. I know that they put this story on its supposed to make us resent Donald Trump. But it doesn't. I just want to know how I can pay little to nothing in taxes. My damn self. Okay. Tony Schwartz, who wrote down attempts book? The Art of the deal, said Even he was surprised by the share brazenness of Donald Trump's behavior and said it would be the kind of mind that things that could get away with paying no taxes on hundreds of millions of dollars in income, and by the way he's gonna have, I think they said $300 million that he owes within the next four years from loans that he's taken out two. They're saying things could get very desperate for him. Now. Here's how Donald Trump responded. The New York Times has been doing its fake story after fake story.

This is a little lonely. Come on, man. Now. Donald Trump has also revealed his platinum plan for black Americans. He could have did this while he was, you know, all four years. Being in office. But he actually unveiled this plan where he is supposedly going to spend $500 billion on black Americans. And he also announced that if he wins a second term, it'll be a push for economic development. And he'll be loaning money and a pledge to designate Juneteenth as a federal holiday, which I felt was something that was already in the works right that other people were already trying to make happen. So this is a new announcement that he's done? Yeah, sort of platinum plane, You know, people from from from his side was sending that to meet his weekend.

"Good morning. How are you, sir? I'm swell administration. That's for sure. Yeah. You are just going to say you are a little scam. You tweeted us so Trump spent a decade in the read only to find himself in the pocket of the reds. That's that's cute. True. That's true. And it could be that. He ended up in the pocket of the reds because he was so far. Yeah. I just I was asking the question of the top of the show Carl. But I was like didn't even his base like they've really don't care that they just paid their taxes and this guy as they don't care. They think it's smart. Remember, the base are people who you go back to George W Bush. They supported George W Bush of the Iraq war when nobody else did. She still had a thirty five percent approval rating. So Trump's got a bit of that going on. But yeah, I mean, they don't care and they believe his lies. Is you know, you've got financial analysts looking at this thing. Like, yeah. He lost buckets of money and Trump is claiming first of all this is how you get out of your taxes. Second of all it's fake. Did you see the guy that Tony Schwartz who wrote art of the deal? Yes. Well, first of all he said, he's they should either take it off the shelf or put it in the fiction department. But he said, I wouldn't be surprised if every bookstore in America has readers going there to put it in the fiction department, but he said, the legal implications of Trump's staggering losses may have very little do with the amount of money. He lost. Although he was clearly a terrible businessman, then with the fact that he likely committed vast tax fraud in claiming the level of losses that he did that right there. I mean, that's right dual tax fraud and insurance fraud. Right. He had totally different kept books for for insurance. And for. I mean, it's just it's insane. Well, I mean, this is on top of, you know, the the million page story in New York Times last year won the Pulitzer showing how he made his money legally. So I think the reason that that we see all of this business model is fraud. Carl wide wizar- not been more made of that by the media. Well, I mean, that's the thing. I think it all all of this anxiety that you see from Trump and his family all of the attacks. All of it boils down to the fact that they are petrified. That people will find out that their house of cards is built on lies and crimes. They're gonna find money laundering. They're going to find other illegality. That's what they're afraid of. Yeah. I hate to inflict this on you. But Sarah, Huckabee Sanders. Oh, gosh. Okay. Sorry. One more. Here. We go. Adler would be a little bit more off on the law..

"Donald Trump's first three weeks of the Pelosi era have been rocky waffling on this shutdown compromise losing a state of the union, and it's typical audience of about forty three million people. I could've gone to go to Tori and gotten twenty five thousand people in one day, and you've been there many times. But I think that would be very disrespectful to the state of the union. So what she said I thought it was actually reasonable. We'll have the state of the union when the shutdown is over. You hear that Donald Trump deferentially calling Pelosi's decision reasonable. He also referred to it. As her prerogative in a moment. We're going to get into it with art of the deal co author in front of the beat Tony Schwartz. He says today that he has never seen Trump so utterly flummoxed and outgunned as he is by Nancy Pelosi. He seems both odd and cowed by her Schwartz argues, it's because Trump has underestimated her ability as a leader and the Trump would be violating one of his own claimed pieces of negotiating advice understand your opponent. Negotiations very very delicate. Sometimes you have to be tough. Sometimes you have to be sweetest pie. You never know. It depends on who you dealing too big thing in negotiation is to try and figure out your opponent. Otherwise, you're going to look like an idiot and lose big. Chore words, truer words, he looks like an idiot. What is it about her and her strategy three weeks in that has reminded anyone who ever said gosh, should she still be speaker? She seems to have a real way to deal with him. Yeah. She's suddenly gone from being this most hated person in her previous incarnation. As speaker to being this celebrity and charismatic leader. I don't think she shifted. I don't think she actually even necessarily has a particular strategy with Trump. I think she's being herself, which is she's tough. She's tough with civility. She's tough with decorum. She's a way that I think Trump looks at and goes, I literally can't do anything to move this person. Well, as as they say an office space, you remember that movie? I do I'm gonna go ahead and disagree with you there. I think speaker Pelosi would never try to cancel George W Bush's state of the union because no matter how diametrically opposed they were on foreign policy on civil rights on the environment. There was still a feeling that you were working within some framework of Washington. And so for all those diametric zero to one hundred on Iraq that would still be. That respect and she is saying something that is quite popular with her base the resistance. But that I think we're seeing more and more across other parts of America. Which is well if this guy comes in and breaks, everything don't you have to change up your response to him. Yeah. I think that what's consistent with who. She's always been is that she is strategic and careful and deliberate and still respectful. She continues to actually the act itself. You might say is disrespectful. But the way in which she has done it. I think is consistent with what you would expect from her. What what I think you're getting at is the chief saying if you were going to degrade the entire government. We don't get to do this thing. Right. But when you step back up to being responsible, you can still have your state of the union using the rules that amusing to rules and my leverage to. Accomplish the outcome. I want I'm not going to scream at you. I'm not going to trade words with you. I'm not going to back down from you. Look this is what leadership is about. It's about being able to balance these opposites of sort of confidence and humility of of. Courage, but also prudence so why did he violate one of the rules that you go strode or health throat? Did he used to follow those rules more talking about her that, oh, I know you were talking about her there? But going back to him saying understand your opponent. He doesn't seem to know what to do with her. You know, I think that in the face of look number one by with a bullet Trump is a bully. So he spent its entire life bullying, and it has usually worked eat it's clear to him that he can't bully her..

"He's my theory on what Trump's good, I know. I was looking today is a Tony Schwartz was co author of art of the deal, and he was roasting. Donald Trump on where was the on state of the union on the state of the union thing. Was he was on Bs NBC say looks like an idiot giving it a Nancy Pelosi. And I said earlier I said I'm wondering how many people stay with this guy. It looks like he's caving on the state of the union is probably gonna cave on the wall. And then as I'm walking through this and talking through this. I said, but here's another theory. What if he's doing this because he plans on giving the state of the union address on the twenty ninth as it was originally scheduled in the house, Phil how can that be said he's going to delay it until after the government's open. The government will be open is he gonna cave on the wall? No. He's gonna do the national emergency thing. He's going to reopen the government in the next two days and then between now and Tuesday or maybe on Tuesday, he's going to announce that he's doing the national emergency because we do have a national emergency. And that's what he makes his case to the American people. And no sooner had I said that and we went to a break, then there was a breaking news story from CNN. They have taken documents from inside the White House of a draft proposal from the president with the wording and everything of a national emergency to build a wall with seven billion not five billion seven billion dollars that is lying around the government somewhere that he can use. So I think that may be it. Here's something else will blow your mind. Oh, by the way. Markelle this is how about the big alternate rally Tuesday night at Jerry's world called the state of the maga- dress. Everybody in attendance gets a free red mega hat also charged twenty dollars. A all the proceeds to go to angel families special guest the entire Covington Catholic student body capital idea for this still running with that like like that student standing there was actually disrespectful to the Indian guy for just standing there. And the guy comes up in his face being a drum and. Johny you do that better than I do. Yeah. So the guy comes up and then.

"Shame. What's happening with the Democrats? This will go on for awhile. Ultimately, the American people will have their way because they wanna see no crime. They wanna see what we're doing today. We lowered prescription drug prices first time in fifty years. They want to see that the Democrats would never have been able to do that. So we're all working very hard. We'll have to respond to it will respond to it. Thank you very much. He's not happy. No. Oh my goodness. Yeah. He couldn't wait to get out of their movie. He probably walked out of that room picked up a foam. And. Okay. He sends kit. Nancy first cancels, the state of the union says there's a government shutdown state of the union shouldn't be happening. He says today in the letter I'm showing up anyway, I'll be there per year invitation, and she said, no, there's no invitation we're closed the government is closed as they they actually have to pass a resolution the house and the Senate do in order to to for the state of the union has got to start in the house. Yeah. It's normally just a procedure. It just happens every year. But this time it's not gonna happen. Tony Schwartz tweeted about the shutdown. He said it'll end for one reason and one reason only. Says there's one reason I can imagine Trump finding this is Tony Schwartz, by the way, the co author of art of the deal. Okay. There's only one reason I can imagine Trump finding a way to open the government by January twenty ninth. He desperately wants to give the state of the union to congress. It's always always about his vanity. Well, Tony, I mean, here's the thing. The president can give the state of the union regardless. It just doesn't happen. It won't be in front of congress. He'll he'll get on TV will really be a state of the union. It won't be it won't be like all the other ones, but he can give his he can give the same speech who's going to give him front of congress won't have the applause. He can give you can give it there from the White House. Yeah. I think you ought to do it at a rally or he could do that to, you know, just go ahead. And do it do the speech at a rally and let the people cheer, and and just leave it at that pump them up. It will make them feel better. Rally is it a state of the union? Yeah. Just be on one channel. Well, I mean, we wouldn't be the big three networks. That's for. Sure. Yeah. They wouldn't cover except in the nightly news. You know what? I bet they would anyhow if he was going to go out and do something like that. Even if it was just his crowd. I bet they would still cover because they want to see what he's going to say tell he goes off script. That's when it gets good. That's right. And so this whole mess between the you know, the battling letters actually at appears to have started earlier today. Sarah Sanders was out on the front lawn of the White House and was actually asked by reporters about so wait. What's what's going on with the state of the union thing? Last thing we heard is back on the sixteenth when Nancy Pelosi sent her letter. So what's going on? And and so this is what's thought to have sparked the the response today. There.

"Back the the willingness to make sacrifices and the absence of need to win in a absolute way. It does seem like Nancy Pelosi has sort of gotten in his head in a way that few other people have particularly. For as woman. I'm wondering did he deal with a lot of powerful women previously. Well, you had Barbarez on. And I would say Barbara says is is a powerful woman Louise, sunshine blanche Sprague, those are three of the powerful women who work for him. But we're talking about power. We got to rate it on a curve, and he's looking in at Nancy Pelosi at a very very different level of power. And it's quite fascinating to see the difference between the way, he treats Schumer, Chuck Schumer and way, he treats Pelosi. Now, I think part of that is because Nancy Pelosi is in charge of a group of people who actually have the majority and Chuck Schumer is not. But I think the bigger thing is that Trump actually believe she's tough. I don't believe he really thinks that Schumer is trough is tough. And so he's up against someone who defies his ordinary understanding because he doesn't think of women as being tough. He may think of them as being competent. He always liked the idea that you. Could use them. I had that. And I don't mean just sexually. I mean, use them in the service of its success. But I don't think he's an Barbara may have said this herself. I don't think he's ever been up against a woman who is genuinely powerful and fascinating Tony Schwartz. Thank you. Always good to have you coming up Giuliani is unleashed a torrent of contradictory statements over the past few weeks or days or months, actually going.

"In the next few days, especially of two Senate measures for ending the shutdown fails expected and another federal payday comes and goes pressure's gonna grow on all sides, try to reach a deal. Now, whatever you may think about President Trump or the wall or any of it is literally word for word what he said he's best at doing. I'm gonna make the great deals. I am going to make great deals for country. I make deals I negotiate. Everybody wants me to negotiate. That's I'm known as negotiator. I'm so anxious to go Goshi. Nobody can out negotiate these deals. I will make a great deal and lots of great deals for the American people. We don't make great deals anymore. But we will once I become president. I built an extraordinary business on relationships and deals that benefit all parties involved. Always. Well, now, in fact, that's not quite true. Is Trump biographer Michael down Tonio put it on the on the program last night. The president simply did not see Goshi nations as a win win process says the president he said preferred I win former Trump executive Barbarez was also on the program talking about how speaker Pelosi saying her old boss has trouble with strong women who have more power or who have power more perspective tonight from author Tony Schwartz who goes road and chose the title for the president's first bestseller. The art of the deal. You're not only wrote the art of the deal understand that you kind of created the narrative of him as deal makers. Well, I was sitting across from him. And he told me in an interview that I was doing that he'd been asked to write a book. And I said what's it about? He said my autobiography I said, well, you're thirty eight years old. You don't have an autobiography if I were you the words I most regret saying in my life. I said if I were you I'd read a book called the art of the deal because people would be interested in deals you've made. So is that it was a narrative literally, it was a way of framing a story about which there was very little to say absent the deals that he'd been involved in as a negotiator. It seems like claiming victory is his main focus. I mean, you know, some people make deal. So that everyone feels they win. It just seems like he doesn't view it that way. Well, he views a deal as something he must win and his style of deal. Making is take a hammer and raise it over your head and smash it down and say would you like to make that deal? And then if you say no smash it down again, but we're in a very different world than the New York real estate world. Dow were in the world in a world in which he doesn't own all the cards, and it's also so fascinating that I mean, you've talked about it on the program before the operates in sort of ten minute increments. And that is not this kind of long term view. It's really just what's going to get him through the next ten minutes. I mean, I've I've found myself wondering Anderson over the last few days, what if you? Dial this back, and he started over this was a man with no ideology when I knew him and for long after that, he didn't have political beliefs. He had things he wanted to accomplish. And I don't believe until very very recently. Meaning the last several years he began to move, right? What if he had just decided I actually do want to be a dealmaker? I actually do want to negotiate what kind of what kind of accomplishments might have been possible. And I wonder and I know he spends almost all his time watching television. We know that now. And so I wonder a Donald if you're watching are you wondering if maybe you should've gone a different direction because it isn't working out, and that style is clearly failing the why do you think it's it's failing just because he's not used to working with so many moving parts. I do think that's part of it. I think a this is a complex situation, and there are multi. People stakeholders, I also think the keys to real negotiation when you don't hold all the cards are. Humility..

And everyone else is getting left behind a stunt. How we build a future. The the president is obviously. He had his fair share racially charged things to say about you. If not outright racist yesterday on Mon Luther King day. Congressman who came Jeffrey is called the president the grand wizard of sixteen hundred Pennsylvania Avenue is that an appropriate thing for sitting member of congress to say about the president. The president has made clear where he stands, and he did that in Charlottesville. He's done it over and over. What matters is that. We as Democrats make clear what we stand for. And what we're going to fight for look for me. I believe in the wealth. I believe in the worth of every single human being I think that that recognizing that worth. And then as a country saying we're just going to invest in some opportunities a level playing field a chance for a kid who's the daughter of a janitor to be able to go to school to be able to get an education to be able to build some real security in her life. I believe that that is the best of America. I believe in an America that reflects our values, but we're going to have to build it together. We're going to have to take our government back. We're going to have to take it away from the wealthy and the well connected who've turned it in their direction, and we're going to have to make it work again for the people. That's the reason I'm in this just lastly just in terms of the race. Are you confident that you know, how to effectively campaign against the president against his scorcher tactics? Because you know, the high road didn't work out for more than a dozen Republican candidates didn't work out for Hillary Clinton. I'll tell you something ours. Born and raised in Oklahoma and all three of my brothers live in Oklahoma. Now, one of them is a democrat. The other two are not. But I love all three of my brothers. And one of the things we spend a lot of time doing is talking about the things we actually agree on the values. We want the same things for our kids. We want all of our kids to have basic healthcare coverage. We don't want it. So there's somebody gets sick. They ended up bankrupt is well, we want our kids to be able to get an education and good education, pre K K through twelve and after high school, we want those things we want our kids to have a future can. Yeah, they're places where we disagree about the best place to put that together. But I think that as. As a people when we talk about our values when we talk about the things that we care most about we can find some common ground, and we can build on that ground, and we can make a real commitment. Not just a to hope it happens. But a real commitment to fight for it to make it happen. I think that's our opportunity. And I also think it's our responsibility. Warn. I appreciate your time. Thanks could talk with you more now on the shutdown on the president's dealmaking or lack thereof is you know, when it comes to making deal. The president says he's an artist coming up next. We'll put his claim to the task by asking someone who actually wrote the book on Donald Trump the art of the deal. Tony Schwartz joins us and later the allegations against the American being detained in Moscow. Is he a spy as Russia claims just upon.

"But later you look at things like when he bought part of Eastern Airlines and rebranded it as the Trump shuttle or the plaza hotel. He was terrible at making those deals and even worse at executing them. So over time, I think he came to regard his own abilities. As maybe something like what people read in the art of the deal. Now, most took what's in the art of the deal was not from the president. It was from Tony Schwartz even the title came from Tony. So we have to wonder at every step of the way. What is Donald Trump really responsible for and how much is just hype? That's the development of is reputation. And none of which would really matter if he wasn't present the United States and meeting one on one with Latimer Putin multiple times meeting one on one with Kim Jong UN with no one else present in the room, which is highly unusual. I mean, he for whatever reason he insists on meeting with these people alone. The the plight. Explanation is that he feels so confident in his deal making that the by force of personality. He can somehow make something happen. Yes. But that wouldn't explain the fact that he doesn't want you want to know, what was said. I'm very worried about that to be honest. Yes. But going back to what Michael said he he did have a lot of skills in the beginning. And one of the things that he doesn't boast about where we think this is greatest skill. This is salesmanship he could sell ice in the winter to us, and he he built his reputation on him selling himself. And this deal thing is part of that. And he has sold themselves to people in that looking back at it. And they said, well some deals will. But why launch most of them were not so good, especially the later ones that Michael mentioned like the plaza and the shadow I mean, he just paid Eskin price and he casino stuff that didn't end and well, right? No, no. It didn't especially the Taj Mahal which was probably his downfall. He had to have it. It was the biggest casino. In Atlantic City. And that's when I say is ego took over is that Michael part of the Rodney think his ego. Oh, it definitely is. I remember when I discussed with then businessman Trump the site of negotiating so that everyone wins and. Experts on negotiation will say that the key to it is having an empathy for the other party to understand where they're when is located and then get to a place where everybody wins. And so I said to him what do you think of this concept of win win? And he said I prefer the concept of I win. So that's really where he's at when it comes to negotiation. And it's I think why he has so much trouble on the world stage. There are so many moving parts so many bilateral relationships, and he can't keep track of on Michael dantonio Barbarez. Great davick. Thank you, the pleasure on this Martin Luther King day, some lawmakers or letting loose on President Trump during sharp contrast between the president and the lead civil rights icon. It was new holding back wasn't fair ill. You'll hear it next..

She's a professor of management at Georgetown, University and Christine studies. What happens when people don't feel appreciated at work something she I saw her own dad experience, here's Christine porous on the Ted stage over twenty two years ago. I vividly recall walking into the stuffy hospital room. It was heartbreaking to see. My dad this strong athletic, energetic, guy, lying in the bed with electrodes strapped to his bare chest. What was work related stress for over a decade? He suffered an uncivil boss. And for me, I thought he was just an outlier at that time. But just a couple of years later, I witnessed and experienced a lot of instability in my first job out of college. I spent a year going to work every day and hearing things from co workers like are you an idiot. That's not how it's done. And if I wanted your opinion I'd ask. I just felt like we could and should do better. And I was surprised that management wasn't paying attention. But I was an economics major as an undergrad. And so I felt like well, you need to show them the money show them what it's costing organizations in order to really put it on managers radar. So I did the natural thing, I quit. And I went back to grad school to study the effects of this. And there I met Christine Pearson. And she had a theory that small uncivil actions can lead to much bigger problems, like aggression, and violence, we believe that incivility affected performance in the bottom line. So we launched a study, and what we found was I opening we send a survey to business school alumni working at all different organizations, and we asked them to write a few sentences about one experience where they were treated rudely disrespectfully or insensitively and to answer questions about how they reacted one person told us about a boss that made insulting statements like that's kindergartners work and another tore up someone's work in front of the entire team. And what we found is that incivility made people less. Motivated sixty six percent cutback work efforts eighty percent lost time. Worrying about what happened and twelve percent left. Their job. And after we publish these results two things happen. One. We got calls from organizations. Cisco read about these numbers took just a few of these an estimated conservatively incivility was costing them twelve million dollars a year. The second thing that happened was that we heard from others in our academic field who said well, people are reporting this. But how can you really show it does people's performance really suffer? And what we found is that those that experienced incivility do actually function much worse. I have always been motivated when I feel valued and appreciated right for what I do. And I've left jobs in the past. When I didn't feel that way. And I can't imagine that's unique. Right. I mean, why would somebody be motivated to do their best work if they didn't feel appreciated? I don't think that's unique at all. In fact, I did a study with Tony Schwartz and the Harvard Business Review, and I was really curious what leader behaviors were most important to people and have the biggest effect on the outcomes that we're measured and the number one thing that affected people, and the people seemed a lot most was respect or the sense of feeling valued, and that was actually more important than recognition appreciation than useful feedback even than opportunities for learning and growth, and those people that felt respected and sadly it was less than half. They reported being a far more focused. You know, they were ninety two percents. More focus. They said that they were fifty six percent healthier. They were much more likely to stay with their firm. And they were about fifty five percent more engaged. And so I was even surprised even though I buy into this topic at just across the different leader behaviors that we know are important that was the one that one out.

"It was interesting moment because it happens in this very public way. And after that you counter Mark, Burnett stopped going to award shows by and large. I want to match the number two, you sixty thousand hours, and that is a specific figure about how many hours of out takes there might be from the apprentice. And there's a couple of questions one is what does Donald Trump say or not say in all of those outtakes and the second question is who controls those outtakes where are they physically and might they ever see the light of day the footage is now controlled by MGM where Martinez the chairman of television MGM acquired marker next company and in so doing acquired this archive. So the archive I believe is in in a number of different locations. The footage is in different formats, but it's all controlled by MGM and MGM says legally they cannot release. Any of this material for a variety of reasons? Well, they could they would get sued. But there's nothing criminal. It'd be a civil complaint, but it's not like they would be thrown in jail. Yes. I mean, I think that the reality though, is they don't intend to release anything Burnett. Doesn't intend to release an ink. So the only way that this stuff would come out would be somebody leaked it the second question that is important here. Interesting is you know, what kind of material would be in those takes. I talked to enough people who worked on the show to become pretty persuaded that there's a lot of Trump saying pretty inappropriate things to and about women anything that rises to the level that you got the access Hollywood tape. I don't know. I mean, this is one of the tricky things with Trump is that he sets the bar so high in terms of inappropriate behavior that you know, anything that doesn't match. It comes to seem positively harmless ask for the racial slurs. This was an interesting one. I kind of went into this believing that probably there were tapes of him, for instance, using the N word which has been widely rumored, but I spoke to enough people who worked on the show who really don't like Trump. Also don't believe that such a tape exists that I came out believing that probably doesn't Tony Schwartz who ghost wrote Donald Trump's book, the art of the deal has come to say that he regrets working on the book, and what it did to enable and empower Donald Trump, even if people who worked on the apprentice didn't vote for Donald Trump. They were trying to make a successful show. And it was a successful show for a while. Do they regret what they did on the show? I talked to any number of people who said that they toss it and turn at night and feel some shame about the sense of complicity that they feel in having put a man into the White House who in most instances, they believe really, you know. Shouldn't be there. The really interesting thing about this story, right? Is that the one person who seems pretty untroubled by is kind of authorship in? This whole episode is Mark Burnett. Patrick Radan kief is a staff writer at the New Yorker. He is the author of the article hell Mark Burnett resurrected Donald Trump as an icon of American success. Patrick.

"Hey, everyone listening to our podcast. This is Ari, and we have two very special things in this podcast extra. I report I've been working on for a long time with my staff here at the beat a deep dive into why federal prosecutors in New York may ultimately pose a bigger threat to some of Donald Trump's interests than even the Muller. Pro we go deep you're about to hear that. And then afterward some of the original reporting that we'd like to do we hear from people who've actually not only spent time with Donald Trump, but got paid by him work with him and are still huge critics Barbarez along time Trump executive, and our friend. Tony Schwartz co author of the art of the deal in the way, we work isn't working that conversation gets into why Tony argues that at times he believes Trump is effectively, quote sub human one more thing. I noticed reading some of your comments and some of your ratings a lot of you guys like when we do these extra segments. Please feel free to go in. If you haven't and comment or rate us five stars, or whatever you think we deserve. We do read what you right there. And it helps get the beat out on I tunes. See you soon. This week's indictment of the Russian lawyer who met with Paul Manafort and Trump's family members is a huge development since she was the most high ranking Russian at a meeting that Bob Muller's investigating in his collusion probe Muller's office. Didn't just indict her just like his office. Didn't actually indict Michael Cohen the office that charged the Russian lawyer was the top federal prosecutor's office in Manhattan, the southern district of New York. This is the office with jurisdiction over the Trump organization and activities involving Trump and his family, which includes anything he did before he became president. So tonight, we turn to a special report why this office is proving so significant in why it's making such pivotal moves on matters adjacent to the Miller probe. The first thing you need to know is that this story is way bigger than Trump. Very few. Federal prosecutors offices have national reputations. Can you think of a current Pasqua's attorney from Texas or California? I can't off the top of my head. But, you know, several prosecutors who led this other district pre Pera who indicted hackers and murderers and some famous democratic politicians in New York before Trump fired him a Rudy Giuliani who busted bankers and mobsters and racked up a record four thousand convictions back when Giuliani was popular across the political spectrum because of that record James Komi who led the office with a fierce independence and only left for promotion to the Bush J handing the reins to David Kelly who prosecuted major terror cases and financial fraud. These prosecutors have long stressed that this office is special. It takes on big targets, and it's aggressive. We are aggressive were appropriately aggressive. That's the history in the office. I don't care who you are..

"Donald Trump did a photo op at the border today. This is a trip he told reporters he didn't even think was worth making the shutdown gets longer. It is on set on pace to break directed for the longest shutdown by this weekend. And all this concern, the focus away from the wall and back inside the US where for load workers and protesters hitting the streets and getting attention for it. Meanwhile, US residents many saying they oppose the wall and their backyard all that has some Republicans in both chambers starting to walk away from Trump. That's a problem for the self proclaimed dealmaker who likes to be the one threatening to walk away to former insiders Trump are with me tonight to explore why his bluster isn't working this time Trump used to claim his strategy was to take things to the edge. But then make a deal one saying you take people to the brink of breaking them without having the break to get a better deal and Trump could always walk out. If he didn't get a better deal. He could walk all the way to bankruptcy. But. But the federal government can't declare bankruptcy. Can't stay closed forever. Trump insisted Mexico would pay for the whole wall. He didn't push them to the brink of breaking or get them to cover say half the walls cost or a quarter. He got nothing. Then you got nothing from the US congress for the wall. And when called and all that Trump says now the buck doesn't stop with the president anymore. Watch this sad decline. Mexico's paying for the wall. Okay. It's an issue of police importantly dollars. We have to finally do the wall will pay for self on a monthly basis. Over this the book sap food everybody. I want to bring in special guest Barbara arrests. Former Trump organization executive she's also the author of all alone on the sixty floor and Tony Schwartz co author of the art of the deal, a friend of the beaten, the author of the way, we work isn't working wonderful to have both of you here seated together for your expertise, Barbara it is easy to normalize. What should not be normal? So for your view, the man, you know, I wanna replay that last moment the president nited states on where the buck stops. Take a look. Doc with you over this shutdown the books food everybody. What kind of deal making always seeing here? Yeah. I thought he was a great deal. Make it to be honest with you and terms of taking the responsibility for the buck. I just wouldn't have to it. It's not in his DNA. He's never responsible. It is always someone else's fault. Yeah. I found myself going back to the art of the deal and looking over those deals that I unfortunately, described thirty years ago, and realizing that most of those deals in that book were failures and the number of deals he's made over the years since then have overwhelmingly been failures. It's a accident of history that he is president. But as a dealmaker he is really one of the worst. I've ever come across. You know, when you think about deal making what is it actually require it requires understanding the other side? So it it, requires empathy. It requires humility it requires courage. These are qualities Donald Trump doesn't have in spades. And your point if the deal is about agreeing to do something real while there may be negoti. Nation and some exaggeration business. The fundamentals have to be true. Otherwise, you end up with a fraud, which is illegal even in tough business deals. Here was Donald Trump. Let's take a look claiming that he actually is honest when he goes sheets, take a look..

Absolutely, absolutely. To be able to go to the judge and say, look, I testified truthfully before congress, I told the American people what I did. I told the American people what they had to worry about with this particular president. And what this particular president did. And I broke open this whole case.
