Cases of Flu Are Down Globally
"Job. Maybe next time you're here you can present. That would be getting green jobs. So i'm just asking when that happened. Richard trumka who is a friend longtime friend of joe biden says about that day one eastone. He says i wish he. The president has paired that. Were carefully with the thing that he did. second by saying. Here's where we are creating jobs. So there's partial evidence from richard trumka. Well you didn't include all of his interview. Would you like to include. How about this. The international union of north america said the keystone decision will cost one thousand existing union jobs and ten thousand projected construction jobs. Well what mr trump. Also indicated in the same interview was that president biden has proposed a climate plan with transformative investments and infrastructure and laid out a plan that will not only create millions of good union jobs but also helped tackle the climate crisis. That guy was peter doocy from fox news and i always hate his questions because he takes four ever to get to the point he just beats around the bush because his conscience is fighting him the whole time and at least that's what it seems like. It's like that tiny little part of them that still has morals and ethics is trying to tell him. He's being deceiving and a bad journalist. But pete here just wants at fox news money one of the more unexpected biden policies. I would say. Just because. I never thought he would actually do. It is that he announced on friday. That trump wouldn't be eligible to receive intelligence briefings anymore. This is the first time that a former president has been cut out of these briefings. But we've never truly had a president trump have we biden explained in that norah o'donnell interview saying quote. I just think that there's no need for him. To have the intelligence briefings. What value is giving him. An intelligence briefing. What impact does he have at all other than the fact that he might slip and say something and he also said that has shown quote erratic behavior. Well that certainly the polite way to say that. He's been acting crazy honestly if he didn't read them well he was president. Why should he get them now. I mean the way. I imagine it. They practically had to create puppet shows and plays to get him the information that was in those briefings like they probably had to act it out for him. The man doesn't or possibly can't read so the story here as promised is about the flus really bad year sir remember. I talked a couple weeks ago. About how bad well not. How bad how good for us it was that. This year's flu season is almost nonexistent. In that was in new york city as it turns out that sort of the case. Globally this reporting from the atlantic followed a doctor from the mayo clinic in rochester minnesota. And they just sort of talked it over with them. What they're seeing in. Why we might be seeing this really good flu season for us. He said on december first that they began testing all patients with respiratory symptoms for covert and the flu so thousands and thousands of these tests have turned up positive for covid but out of the twenty thousand flu tests that they've run which is ten times. The usual number zero have come back positive for the flu since early fall. Eight hundred thousand flu tests in the. Us have been done and only fifteen hundred have been positive. That's point two percent for context. That's about one hundred times so last year. We had a hundred times more cases at this time when we had done. Eight hundred thousand tests back then. The flu positivity rate was anywhere between twenty and thirty percent twenty and thirty percent a lot of other respiratory viruses have disappeared as well well disappeared in quotes because they're still out there somewhere including ones for the common cold. Obviously the reason for this is the number of restrictions and precautions that we've had to put in place social distancing masks etc and all of those help because the regular flu and covid spread in pretty much the same ways however covert spreads more easily because it can be passed on by people who don't even have symptoms in front example just look at all these super spreader events. That didn't happen before. It's not like if you went to the movie theater and just anyone had the flu. You al- suddenly got the flu. There are also differences at the macroscopic level. Like how it sticks to the particles that we exhale when we breathe or talk like cova sticks more easily so is easier to transmit of course doctors
What happens when the salmon stop coming home
"They're called the miracle fish. The lifeblood of first nations up and down the pacific northwest. They feed the river system that snakes through british columbia giving back to the earth and the animals. The journey of a wild sockeye salmon is nothing short of a miracle every year. They swim hundreds of miles from the ocean to their spawning grounds to inland rivers and streams. When they finally made it overcoming countless obstacles along the way the parents lay their eggs and die and then a new generation of salmon make their way downstream and into the pacific ocean to do it all over again it's an astounding journey and it used to be that tens of millions of vibrantly colored wild salmon could be seen swimming to the upper reaches of the rivers to spawn. This fall there were fewer than three hundred thousand. That's the lowest number of wild salmon ever recorded. And that's cause for huge concern.

Trump Aides and Democrats Agree on Trade Pact With Mexico and Canada
"Let's start in DC house. Democrats announced on Tuesday that they had reached a deal with the trump administration on a new North American trade agreement. The United States Mexico Canada Agreement or US MCA replaces. The artist formerly known as the North American Free Trade Agreement or NAFTA and Gideon. The the timing of the announcement couldn't be more interesting. Yes so the weird thing about the politics of what was happening in DC on Tuesday is that this gets announced Coinciding siding with the introduction of articles of impeachment against President Trump so obviously it gave the administration and Republicans the opportunity to tout a success rate before an election election year. This was something that trump had wanted to do for a long time and left some Democrats confused as to why members of Congress would let this happen as it did. Yeah and and the timing does sort of encapsulate. This ongoing theme that the Democrats have been talking about the argument goes that they can legislate and investigate at the same time. Here's part of what House Speaker Kerr. Nancy Pelosi had to say to reporters wonder how you can say that president trump is an existential threat to democracy in one hand but also worked so closely the visit ministration. You get something like this is such a power to them as well say that we came a long way from what he originally proposed what he originally proposed proposed and there are some people who said why make it look like he has eventually well. We've we've we're declaring victory for the American worker. What is in this agreement but but we would never not any one of us is important enough for us to hold up a trade agreement that is important for American workers right so as Nancy was saying there? The deal has a number of concessions from the White House in the new trade agreement. Like what Gideon like what. Well the Democrats said that they were able to get an agreement to remove a particular rule that was set on pharmaceuticals originally certain drugs. We're going to be protected from generic competition for up to ten years. which would have impacted the cost of prescription drugs? Ah basically the way that it works. It's sort of like if there is no competition for these drugs and pharmaceutical companies can sell them for whatever cost that got removed moved Democrats so that they added more enforcement to make sure that Mexico is following through on this new rule to make it easier for workers to unionize and then some other environmental protections to okay okay and even though the whole day in DC was shall we say peculiar. It kind of seemed like Democrats moved on this when they did because they got the go-ahead from big labor unions. Yeah I think that was sort of the writing on the wall the AFL CIO the country's largest labor federation they signed off endorsed the deal AFL CIO president. Richard Trumka tweeted on Tuesday quote. Make no mistake. We demanded a trade deal that benefits workers and fought every single day to negotiate that deal and now we have secured an agreement that working people can probably support the Democrats were happy. Trump was happy. Unions were happy. Are they all going to join hands and sing We are the world now
U.S., Canada and Mexico sign agreement - again
"You house Democrats are eager to show progress on something other than the impeachment inquiry just an hour after unveiling the formal charges against the president house speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a deal he said Democrats had reached an agreement with the White House on an updated trade pact with Mexico and Canada this is the day we've all been working to and working for on the path to yes that yes on a new nafta marks a rare moment of bipartisanship in a deeply divided capital as NPR's Scott Horsley reports for the trump administration getting Mexico and Canada to sign a new trade deal was hard enough winning support from house Democrats may have been even tougher house speaker Pelosi says her party went along only after the new nafta was modified to include enforceable protections for workers and the environment there's no question of course at this table image is much better than nafta it is infinitely better than what was initially of proposed by the administration Democrats also insisted on stripping out of the trade deal certain patent protections which they called a giveaway to big pharmaceutical companies house ways means committee chairman Richard Neal says there were a lot of hard fought negotiations with the White House I think we set a world record for hanging up on each other myself in the trade rep but at the same time we also knew that this was an opportunity that we couldn't let get away from us Neil says the talks came to a head this past weekend the Massachusetts lawmaker was watching the New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady when he was interrupted by a phone call all of a sudden I looked at my phone and said hello see for caller ID long wisdom tells me hello Brady take the call as final details were ironed out Neil was also in regular contact with AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka who checked in from a hunting trip Trumka endorsed the agreement after promise of factory inspections if necessary to verify compliance in Mexico his union backing is an important green light for congressman Neal and his fellow Democrats but this is more than a triumph for organized labor it's a triumph for workers everywhere across America it's also the first major trade agreement for the president who spent much of the last three years disrupting international trade at a signing ceremony in Mexico City this afternoon US trade representative Robert light Heiser hailed the agreement as a win for all three countries and if something is going to base North America Richard is going to make America rich rich could make Canada richer and it's going to make Mexico richer the new agreement which trump calls the U. S. M. C. A. provides important updates for things like digital commerce that barely existed when after the fact a quarter century ago it also requires car companies use more north American parts if they want to sell cars here duty free and includes a sixteen dollar an hour minimum wage for some auto production that could shift some manufacturing from Mexico to the US and Canada on the whole though the U. S. M. C. A. is more of an update to nafta than a wholesale replacement it's estimated increase GDP by only about one third of one percent Christian G. check of the center for automotive research has what the deal does do is avoid the hit to the economy that would have happened to trump made good on his threat to scrap nafta with nothing to take its place it means an end to uncertainty around what the future trading rules will be in North America the agreement also gives house Democrats an accomplishment they can point to other than the impeachment inquiry that's especially important to moderate lawmakers from swing states like Cindy actually allow farmers in her state depend on a continued flow of north American free trade I'm very happy to see where we're at with this and

"This was talking point trump and Russia. And if you take a look at it just look at the facts. Even look at what I've done for Ukraine by giving them tankbusters by giving himself and Obama would send pillows and sheets. He wouldn't send anything else. The whole thing now schiff remember bliss. He makes it all up. He's sick. There's something wrong with them Sisto. He made up my phone call. He made it up. He made up a phone call all and then when I release it everybody was embarrassed and crazy. Nancy Pelosi who by the way is going to go down as the worst speaker in the history of the House of Representatives she. She hasn't done anything all she's she's like paralysed. She cannot do anything Mr President. Gee I predict. You weren't too because Richard Trumka guy. I union guy we haven't heard from the Sei you or trump in a long time and he was all over the Obama presidency they the SEI CIU and with all the unions really worked hard on getting Obama and and so now what trump is saying. Is that Nancy. Pelosi is paralyzed. Because he's pulling the strings and I think they might be something to that. It could be. Yeah and we haven't heard from the guy much really really. He doesn't have the media profile also. And that would make sense predicts you weren't the US. Because Richard Trumka who's a good guy but a big union guy only cares about about a union. Richard Trumka has her mortified. She won't do you. A subsidiary of everybody in the country wants it to farmers manufacturers but Richard Trumka Tazar like. He plays her like a fiddle. And I predict you won't even doing and by the way she's got such pressure to do it. All she has to do is put it to a book. She's he's holding it for. Six months is growing duster and Mexico and Canada calling saying what's going on John Agreement they signed it. Yeah the US MCA man. He keeps bringing that up like sign it all right. Let's get that on the floor. Let's get a vote that's not going to happen. And and and now really the crux of of what trump says is why he's doing all this with some validity. When you you tell me this is the guy who got thrown out of the Navy dishonorably talking? This is Ukraine. The Biden's he's talking about the Biden. Kid You tell me. This is a guy who got thrown out of the Navy dishonorably but gets thrown out of the Navy shortly thereafter. It made no of course you have to look at at corruption corruption. Are we going to be sending massive amounts of money to a country and they're corrupt and they steal the money and then it goes into everybody's bank account so you have to look at that and I will tell you this about job. I never I never said it. Specifically on him but I've watched Joe Biden with the prosecutor who a lot of people Oh said was a great prosecutor and they took them up and he was prosecuting company. And the kid who never made ten cents in his life and all of a sudden Sunday's making millions of dollars that they I mean you you tell me this is a guy who got thrown out of the Navy dishonorably but gets thrown out of the navy shortly there and make no money went through made no money but miss yup VP making millions and millions of dollars..

"For the holiday, and it has to be surprised, by the way for security reasons. And this is good too. Because it's it's still early enough in the afternoon, where major news outlets can spin. It some way they want to. I don't know how they would. But they're going to spin it. You know, how it is? Somebody'll, you know, someone's going to say, oh, Trump just Trumka's went there for. I heard someone yesterday say the government shutdown and Trump's hanging out in Florida playing golf. No, he's not hasn't even left the White House in the last three days. He even said, I'm not going to can't go tomorrow Largo with my family because of this shutdown it, I not only do I not want to. But it would look terrible. If I expect people to shut down the government to get the wall. And then I go tomorrow Largo, but it doesn't stop it doesn't stop people from saying whatever they want. Most of people covering Trump. No that their fellow. I guess I can call him journalist for now they're not going to check them. They're not checking each other. They're not policing each other. They've got one thing in common one mission. When when you watch one of these panels on one of the cable, news networks, they have one mission. Who can out Trump hate the next person? Yeah. Remember when he did that. Oh my God. It was despicable. He's so stupid. Yeah. And the people that vote for him. They're even more stupid. Yeah. But Jimmy Kimmel said they're on meth. Yeah.

That's not what I wanted to talk about this this child, you know, it's heartbreaking dine at the border crossing the border. This is a perfect opportunity for the conservative side. Go on the fence of the moment they start again, blaming it on Trump. I could make a strong case that you could blame these debts that were numbers were probably going to happen anyway on the left for encouraging them to come here and saying we deserved we were supposed to take these people on they were basically lowering them to the border. And I think that's the that's the the the comeback. The approach the aggression that we should start learning to take on Casio Cortez. Chuck Schumer name them, all they're basically saying with their arms out come here come here. And these things are happening now. And they're also saying things which really really bothers me when our politicians say the world has a right to winter our country, if they want that just drives me crazy. Yeah. But it's it's again, I've said numerous times reached Saul Alinsky and his philosophy. Use them for what they're worth. And when something goes wrong blaming on your opponent. You got it. Well, Joe, I appreciate the call have a merry Christmas. You're supposed to defend and protect the constitution.

We're at the top of the hour here at seven AM on the east coast approaching nine AM in Buenos Aires Argentina where the president of the United States very shortly will appear in that very room to sign the US MCA, which is the renegotiated new version of NAFTA that the president has renegotiate it and renamed we'll get to that. Just as soon as it starts. Welcome back to morning, Joe. It is Friday November thirtieth. I'm Willie Geist with its Donny Deutsch the co host of morning Joe. I look Ayman Moyle dean, the president of the council on foreign relations, Richard Haass, Republican strategist and MSNBC political analysts Susan Dell Percy oh, Washington anchor for BBC world news, America Katty Kay Pulitzer prize winning columnist and associate editor of the Washington Post and MSNBC political analysts Eugene Robinson and New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt, Joe and Meco we'll be back on Monday, Richard as we look at the live picture that room or the president will sit in just a moment. What are you looking for over the neck? Couple of days. Obviously in the background is the news of Michael Cohen and another plea deal. Providing new information to the special counsel's office about the activities of the Trump campaign in two thousand sixteen what are you hearing on its watch here? Well, it's not the trade agreement formerly known as NAFTA that is not the centerpiece. I wanna look at how the world receives shakes hands with body language the rest with Mohammed bin some on. The crown prince Saudi Arabia to what extent is there a sign of normalization, which is what the Saudis want. Second of all I want to see how they deal with Putin giving everything we're talking about. But also, whether there's any sign of a common US European front to penalize the Russians for their latest aggression in Ukraine, and then Thirdly, what might be the most significant is whether the United States in China, they can't solve the trade dispute. But can they at least have something of a temporary truce? Can we'll the president agree. Not to impose the next round of sanctions will the Chinese agree to certain may maybe purchasing say of America, natural gas will be able to send their lead trade negotiator. Washington. And if that happens, you'll see the markets, go up five hundred thousand points, and if that doesn't happen it's going to be more bad news. So in terms of the twenty the biggest story will be the United States. Does that if Trumka pull that off? It will definitely change the news headlines at Trump can come back to Intel that news of look what I've done I redid NAFTA. Now, I have China. I mean, that's big economic news, especially in the wake of GM closing. I mean, those in the mar- the market goes up that that's really the things that Donald Trump can go out there and talk about. Yes, Muller investigation will always be there. But that's the kind of thing that Trump would like to have Katty Kay, the president cancelled obviously his meeting when he was on Air Force One. Yesterday announced these cancelling the meeting with Ladimir Putin. He's got two reasons perhaps not to be trumping around with him. This recent news about the rush investigation and also Russia's actions in Ukraine is it the right call not to meet with viable Ademir. Putin Richard Haass said a few moments ago that he ought to meet with them. Confront him. And that would send a much more powerful message. Warring him. Yeah. Probably in terms of wells tragedy. This would be a good time for the president of the United States to use the leverage that America has over Russia to talk about Ukraine and tell them to back off the latest aggression has been pretty exceptional the seizing of the ships the season of the sailors. They have not been returned present portion cove Ukraine says that he thinks that there were plans for some kind of Russian land grab in the east of the country, politically you can see that. It's very hard for him to be seen to be meeting. Any pictures of him meeting? Vladimir Putin at the moment immediately going to raise the specter of Michael Kona, what kind of business negotiations. They may be talking about you have to have a little bit of sympathy for the protocol offices in Argentina at the moment..

"NAFTA talks resuming tomorrow is President Trump continuing his efforts to bring Canada in on a quote, unquote new deal. He stated this morning at a tweet that there was quote no political necessity. In quote to keep Canada in a new NAFTA deal. The president spent the holiday weekend tweeting about our neighbors to the north as well as congress and labor unions after AFL CIO president, Richard Trumka told Fox News. He didn't see how deal would work without Canada. Canadian officials say that they won't sign anything that doesn't work for them. Last week, the White House said it reached an agreement with Mexico, which includes new rules on auto manufacturing, the digital economy and agriculture with more on this. We're joined here in studio by Warton's, Maura Guillaume, who's a professor of international management as well as director of the louder institute and joining us on the phone is Matt gold, adjunct professor at Fordham university's law school, and he's also a former deputy assistant US. Trade Representative for North America. Moral, great, sinew. Thanks for coming in. Thanks for having me. Thank you, Matt. Great to have you back with us. Great v. here. Thank you so Matt, the latest words out of the president's mouth, no political necessity to have Canada in a new NAFTA agreement. Your reaction. My reaction is, yeah, there's political necessity. Sometimes President Trump likes to to say the exact opposite of the way things are. He's trying to put spin on the ball. You know, it's kind of like when you're playing baseball and you're watching baseball, somebody hits that line drive towards the foul pole and you wanted to go fair and being home run and nocco foul, and you stand there with your arms waving, try to make the ball go inside the album. This is what President Trump is doing is trying to make that Detroit when the opposite is true. You know the couple of backwards I've been saying for a year and a half on this show that that we just don't really have the leveraged Trump never had the leverage. The United States never had the leverage to get most of the things that we wanted in this renegotiation, and that's why we didn't attempt it before before President Trump was in office. You mentioned we are getting things on the digital conham agriculture actually getting a bunch of things, but none of those concessions from Canada, Mexico. Those are all things that all. All three countries wanted to update and benefit all three countries mutually. Those are things that the three countries agreed in principle on the first day and spent about nine months working out the actual text of the changes. But now once one side had happened by the time, we got to February March came time for for the countries to actually start making concessions to that didn't wanna do. Of course, that just never happens because we never had to leverage to get to get those things done of of Trump six major ask. He's pretty much had to give up or he's going to have to give up on five of them. And he got part of one of them, which was a North American shift in the North American rules of origin for for autumn motive. And that's what you mentioned with Mexico. You got agreement on some changes, North American content requirement. The automotive barge, and that's getting partially one of his six asks the other ones he's really not gonna get. And two of those are things that are particularly important to Canada. They are the removal of chapter nineteen in the. And they are the other one is the removal of Canadian tariffs on US poultry eggs and traditional dairy products. And that's where the US and Canada are kind of stuck. We've been stuck in this way for for, you know, twenty four plus years. And the real reality is that you know, President Trump doesn't have any more leverage with guardless things, and he had a year and a half ago..

A new deal with Mexico and Canadian negotiators are in Washington DC today trying to join that deal Trump. Has blamed NAFTA for America's economic, woes and he said change is needed this is something that's very special for our manufacturers and for our farmers. From, both countries for all people that work for. Jobs it's also great trade and it makes it a much more fair Bill as I mentioned unions have also had. Major issues, with NAFTA Richard Trumka the head of the AFL CIO has blamed it for factory closures and for sending American jobs to Mexico and before I turn to him I just want to note. That many NPR employees are members of, sag after which is an AFL CIO union we're Joined now by Richard Trumka the, head of the AFL CIO Mr. Trump could good morning good morning David you like this deal is headed so. Far From what we've heard I do look at the. Current version of NAFTA's harmed small farmers ranchers businesses. And working people across all, across North America the only, clear winners, so far have been global corporations this is trying to reverse that in, many areas can I just, ask you but before we move on I mean there's there have been some who have who've argued another side of that which is that you know if if. You get higher wages for workers with new NAFTA that could mean more expensive goods that might dampen demand that might actually lead to layoffs like that it's. A lot, of. People don't see it the way you do I think the economists agree. With me in the mainstream look if we give Mexican workers higher wages they're going to. Be able to buy. More products if they can buy more products that increases, demand for not only Mexican made products but u s and Canadian. Made products when their wages rise all of us begin. To win well let me let me ask you. About someone who very much, agrees with you Tim Ryan, is a, democratic member of congress from Ohio he has been watching this deal come, together he was on our, air yesterday said he likes where it's going but the quote it is very difficult to take the president seriously with some of these negotiations now for your union. Enforcement of labor provisions has been such an important issue for you Do you trust this administration to enforce whatever new provisions they agree to David enforcement has been lax take. A case in Guatemala it. Took nine years to come to a conclusion, there's three cases still pending one was filed in two. Thousand and eight. And the other two were. Filed in two thousand eleven they're still pending so there's no real enforcement all we want. To reverse that we've worked with ambassador. Lighthouses to try to create. Enforcement we haven't seen it in writing yet we're told that we, will we want to examine it when a look at the whole agreement and then hopefully be able, to get an. Agreement that really works, for working people in this country but and Mexico but we should say it sounds like a lot of this will still come down to trust and do you trust President Trump to to make the tough enforcement decisions? That, might have to be made going forward. To protect unions like yours I it's got to be more than trust it has to be part of the agreement because. Whoever's Irv now Bester late Hauser will I believe in force in agreement but whoever Comes next has. To be able to enforce it as well, that's why we want to see it in the agreement. So that no. Matter who's in the White. House we have enforcement for working people that doesn't take nine or ten years or require. Us to lose thousands hundreds of thousands. Of jobs before you can. Follow and prosecutor complaint how have your conversations with the president been, about all this I think he understands our position he understands it enforcement is important look the Mexicans, have a a. Low wage model and, they aid that by having employer dominated unions this agreement so far will help eliminate those employer dominated unions it'll help us enforce disagreement on a regular basis so that wages can rise in Mexico Canada and the US? And, everybody ultimately wins Mr. Trump can you've. Watched many of these conversations go on over the years what does it say about our politics today when you have a. President who How many Democrats I mean literally can't. Stand and have many issues with but we have reached. A moment when it seems like labor a good, number of Democrats and a prisoner working together on on on an issue here well I think it should happen more often I think we should look at, the issue and. Go for the issue I said whenever he's elected whenever pro? President Obama was elected I said. The same thing when he does. Something, that's good for workers will say so when, he does something that hurts workers will say so. And we'll we'll call on his balls and strikes supporting when. We can support the the issues when we can this has been an important issue for, working, people and for America for workers in. America it's. Important to get this right so we're working at it we'll hopefully. We'll get to see the whole agreement and? Be able to go with it Richard Trumka is the president of the, AFL CIO thanks so much we appreciate it David thanks for having me on and I. Just, want to bring in NPR's Jim zarroli.

From listening to that conversation, well you know labor unions in, general have been positive about this effort to redraft NAFTA to to make changes they've. Lost a lot of members since NAFTA took effect especially in, the private sector so they see this as a chance to regain some lost ground especially in Mexico and in. Terms of working conditions so you know that being said they have really significant reservations about. The way this is being, carried? Out a lot of unions. Like the steelworkers significant membership in Canada and some of Trump's policies especially the steel tariffs Could end.
