"Light on how these solar system evolved. This is the briefing monocle twenty four. Just about to hit twelve minutes past the hour here in London on yesterday's program. We were looking at Joe Biden's attempts to become the next occupant of the White House, the Democratic Party, of course, isn't short of candidates, but which of them would the Republicans least like to face will joined on the line now by Scott Lucas, who's a professor of US politics at the university of Birmingham, Scott. Do you think that the well, let's let's say at a long it's a long list of potential candidates full of the Democrats ticket is that a sign that the party isn't entirely sure the best strategy to beat Donald Trump. I would probably go more on the outside of this. And that is the Democrats are clearly like a lot of us having to do a reassessment after Donald Trump getting into the White House and the turmoil of the past few years coming out of that turmoi-. I think you have to have a look at yourself and say, all right. What are the core issues that were working with? How are we going to communicate those? Issues to the American people, and what are the strengths of across action of individuals that you have in the party and the potential strengthen the democratic field is the diversity. It's the diversity in terms of the range of the women that are there the range of people of color who were there. But I think most of all the range of ability of people who are there, you've got unbe Lisbeth Warren who has a great strengthen policy and in terms of economic issues. You've got a camera Harris without legal background and precise. Mine you've got the dynamism would beat up heat Budaj or a bento aerobic. And of course, you've got the experience of someone like a Bernie Sanders who ran in two thousand sixteen I don't favor any one of those candidates over any others. I think white gives you going into this first debates in June or July is the ability of people to take what we're not locked in in a way that many I think thought they were which was Hillary or Boston two thousand sixteen. We just have to see if the strength of a particular candidate can stay the course through the debates this year, then. Through the primaries and all the way into the general election, presumably installed Trump, Scott. Oh, we in the media seemed to spend a lot of time talking about the candidates that we find most interesting, and I suppose that the can lead is to sometimes think that eve you better at capturing media attention. You will also be better at capturing votes. Come election day is that perhaps the wrong track? We still falling into the old trap of maybe some of the election coverage that happened in twenty sixteen because when you look at the mid term elections, it does seem as if the issues deed proved to be the most important thing at the end of the day because it was the healthcare the focus on the healthcare legislation that that seemed to carry the Democrats through to the finish line. I is that a fast. I isn't y'all..

"Draw from Iraq, which of course, aided and abetted the rise of ISIS. I just wonder how you reconcile those two realities. That's a good question, and it was handled very badly. Would you wanna talk to the allies? And how about the heads of your own joint chiefs of staff before you made that decision. That's a no brainer incredibly stupid and the way it was done. But we're talking about two thousand troops on the ground. Let's be clear that the people that actually really care about Syria are the ones that are actually putting real troops and real money against it. It's russia. It's a Ron and it's Turkey. That's why Assad has one that's what's the termined any political outcome on the ground. It's the reason why the Kurds stop fighting against ISIS with the Americans and started defending themselves against the Turks, for example. So the idea that suddenly Trump's decision a poll two thousand troops out. Definitely going to offend a lot of allies Madison. Very clearly right about that. But changing the situation on the ground. Frankly, not all that much. Doug Brinkley in Bremmer. Thanks very much. But. Let's check in now with Chris Cuomo to see what's coming up on Cuomo prime-time just at the top of the hour.

Make his case we'll see how it goes. We're also going to have PJ Ryshkov on you know, him from VA the Iraq Afghanistan veterans of America. We're missing the point about what this pullout from Syria and Afghantistan the vacuum of Madison's leadership means to our fighting men and women we should be focused on them. And we haven't been we've been caught up by the politics. He's going to set us straight tonight. And then a closing argument about the reality of what is behind a word because that's what's causing the shutdown. I'm here a lot of similar similar things as well from from deployed forces, Chris, thanks very much. What you see at the top of the hour at the end of a week filled. With jarring news.

"Credible story of a comedy great Mendes. Loved her basically stole all of my characters from Gilda. I can do almost anything people are laughing. Love killed up a CNN fill New Year's day at nine pm on CNN. Reaction startled reaction to yesterday's resignation. By Defense Secretary James Mattis is still flowing in tonight. And it is concerning. I've heard from currently deployed US servicemembers, including those in Syria. One telling me, quote, I have never seen the special operation forces community in this state. If he the president wanted to lose most military professionals mission accomplished, another we fear genocide in Syria. No logical way for our commanders in the fight to explain this to our partners that from people currently deploy all this CNN. Jim Acosta is reporting that the president is angry about the resignation letter. But according to a source, quote hates the coverage even more joining me now or in Bremmer, he's president of the Eurasia group and CNN presidential historian. Douglas brinkley. So in the last twenty four hours, I've been speaking a lot of folks currently serving in the Middle East military, formerly who serve both Republican and democratic presidents, and they're concerned about Madison's departure is not just because they saw him as a moderating adult experience voice. But also because he clearly departed over a series of decisions that a whole host of people are uncomfortable with on Syria, Afghanistan, North Korea, you name it. How how do you see it certainly is a blow? He's very well respected internationally, perhaps more than anyone else in the Trump administration at the cabinet level. Most importantly in NATO where Trump was saying it's obsolete. I want more out of them. But Mattis has been a steady hand and seen as both moderate and a leader and also quite influential. But I would also say that in the grand scheme of two years of the Trump administration. The departure of the former chief strategist Steve Bannon was actually much more normalized. Zing. It took the US away from chaos in a way that's more significant than Maddison's departure creates more chaos, and I think that we tend in the media a lot of people focus on how everything seems to be focused towards the wheels coming off the administration. This is a bad move. But there has been some normalizing features as well. Doug brinkley. You've watched a lot of administrations through the years. I I wonder if you agree with that appraisal. Well, look, a precedents do fire people, and they resigned, but you know, it's unusual in American history to have a secretary of defense. Right. The kind of scathing letter like General Mattis, did it's low keyed scathing. But we all know what he's saying. Which is basically a Donald Trump doesn't respect our allies that goes against one hundred years of American foreign policy that the Trump administration didn't give him the proper courtesy about telling them. We're pulling out of Syria, and you know, we have had people resigned. I mean, William Jennings Bryan famously resigned under Woodrow Wilson because he didn't want to go into World War One. Oh in Madison unique because you're seeing a difference. It sort of maddest representing the whole US military establishment versus Donald Trump's isolationist vision. While you also cite that letter say it shows an essential lack of respect by Mattis for the president. You don't see this as a larger crisis on par with say bandaged departure explained that. Well, a couple points one is that the most important relationship the US has in the world, the China relationship Mattis has been a bit player in that regard. It's really been driven by secretary of state Pompeo. Oh, who's been much more effective than Rex Tillerson was for example, again, something that's worth reminding people? Listen, I've been speaking to folks on the ground in places like Syria and Afghanistan serving members of the special forces. They are alarmed at this. They see the US is abandoning partners in short shrift that the point being you could discuss it. Withdraw from these places over time you prepare the ground you prepare your allies to summarily withdraw. I mean, Trump himself criticized Obama for for a much slower..

"Was that the completely clear recognition that presidents should not be involved in investigations of themselves that they should be completely out of the loop that should be outside their purview? Well, here we have the president raging at the acting attorney general. About the Justice department investigations of him. This is precisely the kind of thing that presidents should not be involved in now. Apparently, it's true that that he didn't fire Whitaker. He didn't threaten Whitaker, but the whole point of a president raging at his subordinate over an investigation of him. Just is completely inappropriate. But maybe this is pretty early on in Whitaker's stint as acting attorney general and the president already not happy with his own choice to head the Justice department. Does he not understand the DOJ's independence or does? He not care. I look I can't read his mind that just having covered him for awhile. I believe he doesn't care. I mean, I think that my colleague Mike Schmidt at the times had a nasal reporting last year about the president, you know, demanding where's my ROY Cohn? Referring to his personal attorney and fix her. And brutalize her frankly of many, many years that is what he expected the attorney general to be like he will often say, look, you know. JFK had Bobby Kennedy and Obama had holder, and he believes that that is what an attorney general is doing. He believes us what they did in those cases. And that's what someone should be doing for him, which is not to say that he's accurate in that description of previous presidents, but that is how he sees it. His view of executive power is is say something and everything else should follow from it. He does not believe in separation of powers he'd or he's not interested in hearing about it. And he is a seventy two year old man who is not going to change how he does things. And if I can just add look at who he made acting attorney general Matt Whitaker is a completely undistinguished lawyer someone who in ordinary circumstances would never be even in contention to be attorney general, but what does Donald Trump no about him? He was here on CNN and elsewhere. That is Whitaker denouncing Robert Mueller that was his whole qualification for this job. Now, Bill bar is a much more distinguished lawyer. Who is the now the the nominee to be attorney general, but he's famous also criticised twenty a twenty page memo that he just voluntarily wrote attacking Robert Mueller. I mean, this is this is a feature not a bug of these two kids journey gentleman, and we should note it in the maelstrom of you news yesterday lost to some degree. What was the fact we learned that Justice department ethics lawyers recommended that Whitaker recused himself because precisely because of those comments Jeffrey, and he it affect refused refused. Mag? Right. I mean, look he Whitaker is a loyalist to the president. He spent a lot of time cultivating a relationship with him while he was serving as Jeff Sessions chief of staff, I think it is not a surprise that. He is somebody who the president thinks is going to be a heat shield again. We don't have any indication that Whitaker deed anything after the the phone calls. But they are as Jeffrey says there they are at best inappropriate. And they are not what we are used to seeing from presidents presidents, even if they typically have the desire to make that kind of. And there is no other instance, where we have had a president who is under investigation in the way, this one is, but, but if you pretended that there was for a minute, the there, we there's no other instance, of somebody trying to make even even if another president had this impulse to make a phone call like this most would recognize the dangers and doing so with this president just repeatedly test the boundaries every time you have to embroidery that on the pillow. It's not what we're used to seeing the president say said that one to repeat right of big picture because this is happening in the midst of other momentous decisions and troubling decisions from any Republicans Democrats that departure Jim Madison the resignation while taking a shot of the president for a series of foreign policy decisions that he found troubling..

"There's more breaking news tonight new reporting by CNN that shows yet again, what this president seems to think falls under an attorney general's job description, namely protecting him Pamela Brown has the reporting on this. And she joins us now says, Pamela, this looks to be remarkable overreach by president interfering with ongoing investigations, and the very least it is. It's an unusual situation here, Jim as sources tell me, and my colleague Laura Jarrett that on at least two occasions in the past few weeks, the president has visited at his acting attorney general about the Michael Cohen investigations. We're told the president was anchored by federal prosecutors referencing him in crimes Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to and according to multiple sources, Trump was frustrated that prosecutors that Whitaker overseas file these charges that may Trump look bad that we should know Jim that none of the sources suggested the president. Directed Whitaker to stop the investigators. But these discussions between Trump and Whitaker underscore the extent that the president believes the attorney general should serve as his personal protector. And it also gives a glimpse into the strange dynamic of a setting sitting president as you pointed out talking to his attorney general about investigations, he's potentially implicated in. Whitaker's predecessor was fired because he didn't do what the president wanted on it terms of oversight or limitation that investigation. Pimm. I understand there at least two discussions as you said between the president winegar. Do we know how Whitaker responded to the presidential scolding as it were? Well, we don't know exactly. How would occur responded to this? But we do know what the president did. And now was express his frustration lashing out at Whitaker and one event took place after the special counsel charge. Michael Cohen over making false statements. That included details of him talking to the president well into the election year at about the Trump Tower. Moscow was you'll recall after we've reported that and then over a week later. Jim Trump again voiced his anger Whitaker after prosecutors in Manhattan, officially implicated the president and hush money scheme to buy the silence of women around the twenty sixteen campaign, something Trump and his attorneys fiercely maintained. Isn't an illegal campaign contribution? Now, we're told the Trump press would occur on why more wasn't being done to control these prosecutors in New York suggesting that they were going rogue, and we should add that well not confirming these conversations Rudy Giuliani. The president's attorney said this the president and his lawyers are upset about the professional. Prosecutors in the southern district of New York are aren't going after a non-crime and innuendo that the president was involved. And also, Jim the Justice department declined to comment. Seem to have witnesses to attest to that crime, Pamela Brown. Thanks very much story on oh, we're gonna continue to follow with me now as New York Times White House correspondent and political analyst Maggie Haberman. Also, C N N legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, Jeffrey, if I could begin with you tell us how troubling this is for a president to go to his acting attorney general scold him for prosecutors under his re-met prosecuting crimes. Right. The president has a direct interest in the whole point of why we have special counsels Robert Mueller, or before that independent counsels..

"But you know, that when you speak to the experts the nature of that border, hundreds of miles long. There are some places where a wall make is it makes a difference someplace where it doesn't we're we're it would strike, folks. Even folks who who defend that border that this is more about a political pledge than the actual goal of defending that border might go just a quick response. Because Charlie I want you. I want your views. I want to hear Charlie to you know, I know that the border is the solution to on the border border security aren't entirely wrapped around a wall. I also know the Democrats voted against Cates law. I know that they support sanctuary cities. I know that they voted against keeping MS thirteen and other violent offenders out. Lord. I know they're against the wall, even though in two thousand and six they voted for a wall. So let's let's came straight a real border security. Okay. Let's talk about two thousand six you voted for a wall. John. I voted you served in congress to that. Look I voted for the secure fence act in two thousand six with the secure fence act attempted to do is help establish operational control the border it authorized about seven hundred miles of Hitler and pedestrian barriers on the southern border. Nobody was seriously talking about a two thousand mile wall. Thank or even steel slat fence on the southern border. It was not necessary. We need we need drones technologies. Surveillance detention beds more border patrol agents. We need roads along the along the border where we don't have very good access. And so I think it's inexcusable that we are going to shut the government down over this. It makes absolutely no sense. The party that makes the demands of a policy initiative say in this case the wall or defunding. Obamacare, DACA is the party that will own the shutdown, and this is reckless hundreds of thousands of people are going to be affected. Many Americans see crisis in leadership right now. I'm sitting here in Bethlehem. In pennsylvania. Let me tell you what people are not happy when they see the secretary of defense resigned. Repudiate Donald Trump's world view. They're concerned about global stability treatment of allies. They're worried that their government is not functioning can't even perform the basic fundamental tasks of government. But let's put it let's get Syria. So nobody's advocating for two thousand mile concrete, baron, the southern border. Sure. Big picture on that point. It'd be practically is this the fight that the president wants now is, you know, the markets have been down the worst December since the depression, in fact, down more than a thousand points since the passage of the tax cut. You have real concerns about global economic slowing shutting down the governor. The governor is a big source of funding in the economy is this a risk for this president right now. Of course, it is. It's a risk for everybody involved. But the president of begrudgingly signed a deal in March. And they said that we'd fight for the wall later, and then September Republicans who didn't want a face a challenge in the mid term elections asked him to punt the ball until after the elections, and that they would fight for his wall then and it's now that's where we are today. And you know, the president's base who elected him, president United States a lot of them across all demographics support of this wall as a very important point on the campaign promises. And right now, we look at it as a test of his metal. I'd like to see the president's wishes bet here, I think the the Democrats voted for border security in two thousand and six six should try to find their compass again in a Maria. There was a moment earlier this week. There was a continuing resolution was passed. Bernie Sanders said a few minutes ago unanimously by the Senate would appear to change that the president got grief from sort of. To the voices of the base. The Laura Ingraham's Coulter's of the world. Swung the president on this. Right. And that is what is so concerning to the majority of the America to the majority of Americans who by the way, did not vote for this president and vastly disapprove of the job. He is doing exactly because he behaves the way that he does. He clearly has puppet masters in the Lexa van Coulter, and Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh. And that is not how you govern the greatest country in the world. I'm sorry..

"Whatever if anything is ultimately agreed on between Democrats and the president on money for the border. There was little chance president. We'll get anything close to what he wants demanded repeatedly and promised to voters during the campaign. I promise we will build the wall and who's gonna pay for the wall. Who's gonna pay for the wall? It'll be a great wool Mexico's gonna pay for the wall. Mexico is going to pay for the wall. Mexico will pay for the wall. That's just not true. And it never was now. The president's ask seems to be for a steel slap barrier, which he calls beautiful that in actuality you, and I will pay for here to talk about it. Former Republican congressman Charlie dent, former Trump campaign aide, Michael Caputo and democratic strategist Maria Cardona, Michael I if I could begin with you it was days ago that the president said in no uncertain terms that he will happily proudly own this shutdown just to remind viewers. I will play that moment again. I am proud to shut down the government for border security because the people of this country don't want criminals and people that have lots of problems and drugs pouring into a country. So I will take the mantle I will be the one to shut it down. I'm not gonna blame you for the last time you shut it down. It didn't work. I will take the mantle of shutting down, and I'm going to shut it down for border. But we believe you. Now, of course, he's claiming to blame the Democrats how could he possibly do that? Well, I gotta tell you out here in fly over country. Not a lot of people are real concerned about who's responsible for this all the finger pointing back and forth. When you're when I heard him say that in the White House. I it made me smile, I knew immediately the BI partisan government fetishists in in Washington. We're gonna be all Twitter about it out here. We don't really care who's responsible for those of us who voted for the president who supported the president. And it'll kill. The president said in no uncertain terms repeatedly and proudly and loudly that doesn't matter. I can tell you. I I don't care who's responsible for this. I want wall. And I don't care if the government gets shut down over it up here in western New York, we've got people dying every week because of opioids seventy five percent of which come across that border, and the experts tell us that the wall works, especially eighty nine percent of border patrol officers want that wall, then give it to him. I'm tired of people dying in my little town. I want to see the flow of these opioids stuff Maria Donut response. My response is that we should actually try to find real solutions by using real facts. We know that this president is no frame, the facts, and is no friend of the truth. And that is why he has got to resort to fearmongering. It is absolutely ridiculous for people to take him seriously when he said that he was going to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it that was lying number one making Mexico pay for it line. Number two is that the majority of voters want the wall the majority of voters? Do not believe that a wall will actually be successful. Can we talk about real comprehensive border security real strategies that will secure our border? Absolutely. And guess who has done that historically Democrats on undocumented immigration was it a fulltime high in the mid two thousand when Barack Obama came into office. He put in a very comprehensive strategy working with Republicans to devote real money and real investment and real strategy and tactics on border security, and guess what it worked immigration from Mexico, which was the largest at the time is now net negative. Now. Let's find a solution to keep the central Americans moms and dads and kids safe in their own countries. So that they don't have to come here. But that's not what this president is interested in he wants to deport kids instead of criminals he wants to deport grandmothers instead of gang members. Let's focus on real solutions. What Michael Jordan? I want to get to you too..

"Well, you just how did right on your program a few moments ago, where the president said, I take responsibility for the shutdown. You've got the democrat. You've got the Republicans running the Senate Republicans running the house president says he wants shut down. I think the American people clear about who caused the shutdown. The one point that you a very comprehensive analysis of where we all missed is that two days ago seems like two years ago, but two days ago unanimously the United States Senate reached an agreement to make sure the government did not shut down and extend the process into February. And then what happened is unfortunately, President Trump watch television. He saw something on Fox TV heard something from Rush Limbaugh. And he changed his mind, and sadly, really seventy the entire Republican congressional caucus in the house and the Senate kind of caved in to him. And it is a heck of a way to run a government. When you have a president who sees something on television, tweets out, his view, and you have both Republican bodies in the house and the Senate cave into that. So the figure, of course, in that that measure that was passed unanimously as you said, the Senate was one point six billion dollars tonight from the Democrats perspective, are you or other Democrats willing to give any ground on that figure? Go any higher. Look, I think that the wall is an absurd idea. I think say waste of money. I think it just fans Trump's illusions. And no, I am not going to support five billion dollars money for a wool everybody. And I think Trump lies on this as well as lying on almost everything else. He lives when he suggests that a Democrats progressives on a concerned about border security. Of course, we all everybody is concerned about border security, but if you wanna do border security, intelligently and cost effectively you don't do it with a wall. There are much more much better approaches than that. I'm sure you saw the president's tweet tonight. Going after this slats model, not not a wall. He called it. A steel slap barrier. Here's the picture there. Looks almost medieval with with the pikes on the top. There. Does that make any difference to you or other Democrats do not have a wall to have a offense in effect? Jim. We have a infrastructure in this country roads bridges water systems, which are crumbling. We have veterans was sleeping out on the street. Right now, we have kids who cannot afford to go to college. We have a London needs in this country and spending five billion dollars on a wall is not to me one of our priorities. And we've got to get our priorities, right and take care of working families in this country and not just from solutions. What do you say to the folks who say that Democrats really they sense the president being week here? He's about to lose one chamber of congress to Democrats knows the time is. Waning. But but the Democrats and opportunity simply to stick it to the president here. No, I don't think it's a question of sticking it to him. It's a question of spending tax payers money in a intelligent way to rational way, and with so many terrible needs in this country. Yeah, you got elderly people watching this program trying to get by on twelve thousand dollars. You people can't afford their prescription drugs. We should not be wasting by billion dollars on a wall. When there are much more cost effective ways to do border security. I want to ask you if I can't move onto another topic. That of course, the departure of the Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in the wake of a decision to summarily withdraw US troops from Syria. Of course, the home of ISIS. Now, there's the president is ordering the having of the US president presence in Afghanistan. The home of Al Qaeda in your view are Americans less safe today as a result of those decisions and the departure of the Defense Secretary. We have been in Afghanistan for seventeen years. Syria is a enormously horrible and complicated. A civil war. It has been my view that we need to begin the process of bringing our troops home. But you don't do it by a tweak. You don't do it without informing your allies? You don't do it in a way that leaves allies of yours an innocent people in a very dangerous situation. I e the Kurds, so you'd need a process and international process to bring our troops home..

"He's willing to give all of that up for for steel slots at the border, but putting that aside we did run into to the chief of staff John Kelly over here at the White House earlier this evening who said he thought there was a chance that there could be a deal before midnight. I also talked to a senior administration official just in the last few moments. You said it is not quite midnight. So there's the potential that they could strike some kind of agreement. But as Phil Mattingly was just saying a few moments ago, the mechanics are not really in place. There aren't members of congress in place up on Capitol Hill and the house and the Senate to vote in approve some kind of compromise. But whether or not we get some kind of greement of before the clock strikes midnight, or perhaps thereafter somewhere there after I suppose, you could have technical shutdown of, but maybe an agreement in place before we wake. Tomorrow morning that that is just I think the best case scenario at this point. I think the president has indicated and I've talked to sources over here this evening, and they're indicating president has also willing to dig in on this fight over border security. He wants some kind of constellation out of all of this. And at this point he hasn't seen one yet. You know, the president views it, right? He wants to win it every context a win that reflects on him, positively. That's right. Jim mukasa? Thanks very much at the White House. Connecticut democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal today how to tweet it speaks to the shutdown. But also the perceptions of larger troubles happening now at the White House. I'm quoting now presidential freefall riding Amtrak back to the Senate vote. The only firm tracks seemed to be the ones under the train bipartisan leadership must restore rational governing abandoned by an impetuous petulant chief executive joining us now one of Senator Richard Blumenthal distinguished colleagues. Former democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Independent, of course from state of Mont sec. Percenters? Thanks for taking the time tonight. My pleasure. You've certainly heard the president. You've certainly heard Republican leaders say tonight that this budget crisis is now on everyone's shoulders owned by Republicans. Democrats the president I imagined you disagree with that who do you believe bears responsibility?.

"Shutdowns guaranteed. Yeah. Exactly. The houses adjourn for the night. The Senate has told senators that there will be no votes tonight. The actual top leaders in both the house and Senate have already gone home. The reality is if there is a deal to be had that deal will not be reached tonight. And there will be no votes tonight. That means they shut down will start. The question now is not whether or not there will be shut down. There will be the question is is there a deal that could be made over the course of the next day two days or three days. Here's the reality of where things stand right now. Jim as you noted for days on end there are there appear to be no movement whatsoever. The president making very clear his top line was five billion dollars to fund a border wall. Democrats making very clear they weren't willing to go anywhere near that. And Democrats also making very clear they thought they held the upper hand in these negotiations. What we do know over the course of the last couple of hours through that flurry of negotiations. The vice president the incoming chief of staff to your Kushner coming up to Capitol Hill shuttling back and forth. Is that there is some sign with the White House is willing to deal. The question is what that deal will be now as it currently stands, Mick Mulvaney, the vice president and Jared Kushner, actually still in the capital, even though the leaders are gone. The question is what are they willing to move their number two. When you talk to Democrats they've made very clear, they have put a bipartisan option on the table. That would be a six week stopgap Bill that the Senate passed unanimously the house is obviously up to this point rejected that option so where are there potential areas of agreement? What has been batted around over the course of the last couple of hours? Is perhaps moving back to what was his Senate agreed upon it a bipartisan manner number of one point six billion dollars for border security with the addition of some other fund for immigration related issues that the administration will have access to that sounds familiar. It's because it was rejected earlier in the week by Democrats. So where this all ends. Nobody really knows what they do know is there will be shut down on midnight and talks to try and find some way out of this will continue we heard senators on the floor. The last time they spoke saying, listen, we're not gonna come back unless there's something that all the sides are willing really to back here. So that next vote won't happen. Presumably until that point we have any idea, then when the next vote might happen. It sounds like no, we don't not at this point. But I will say that's tangible movement, the idea that the show votes or the procedural votes are people just putting up bills and having messaging votes that's in the past. Now that was the agreement that was reached tonight. No, there was an agreement reached on policy. There wasn't an agreement reached to get out of the shutdown. But there was an agreement reached that the next time the United States Senate holds vote. It will be on an agreement when that agreement actually comes together when that vote takes place that remains TVD people. I'm talking to that are involved in the negotiations caution that there's a lot to go or there's a lot that needs to happen in the hours and days ahead. And there's a lot of movement that needs to happen from the president's baseline and from Democrats baseline for anything to occur. So right now everybody is in wait and see time. And the reality is, Jim we're not gonna hear anything I'm told until at least tomorrow at this point eight hundred thousand Americans are going to be getting paid through the holidays. Phil mattingly. Thanks very much. Let's get more now on how this is unfolding at the White House. Jim Acosta you've been there you've been following this. There's talk of compromise from the White House. Did do you have any idea of what that looks like what they're willing to give on? What we saw the president earlier tonight put out that tweet. He's not even demanding a wall at this point. It'll take offense made up of steel slats after all those months of campaigning and saying that Mexico would pay for a wall..

Other market leaders also fell sharply shares Facebook where we're down five point seven percent. Amazon was down five point one percent now fell five point five percents and alphabet fell three point eight percent. For more on those my colleague John earlier, how to talk with Paul Gillies professor of practice at school of management at Peking university. And professor at university of international business and economics, first of all the US stocks jobs again on Monday, what are the main factors behind it? Well, we appear to be at the tail end of a long bull market. There's been. A lot of instability in the markets recently with big swings. Now, we may see another big game tomorrow or this could be the beginning of a major adjustment. So what do you think the main factors food markets? Now is that the, you know, the global things the uncertainties over Braxton talion budget crisis U S, China trade tensions all the factors for the market. That has been lack of good news in the macroeconomic fundamentals around the home go, but. Most of standing still the three times in between the two biggest economy being United States versus China China. So you're for the market has been jittery. So few you go, and there was a civil lining with expect Taishin that people, you know, top leaders could really have some sort of a grim into close the times over the impact on the outcome is very pessimistic without the China and the United States signing the joint declaration, compression versus the the global trade. So you know market has really reacted very promptly to such a news. News way, we do see there. Maybe a chance to rebound because people are really anxious about the literal this month when the two top leaders being in Pinon, Donald Trump could really meet and discuss over the G twenty so and arty the uncertainty on really injecting all the pessimism over the stock exchange.

By the shop declines in technology, shares the phone come. Yeah. There's been a lot of focused on Apple's disappointing sales of the latest iphones and cut production targets, and that has quite a spillover effect on other companies that supply apple semiconductor companies and other component companies and in companies like box con that assemble the the iphones are now tech is done awfully well in this ball market, and it's probably more vulnerable to a major correction as we as we start to adjust expectation. Probably the biggest concern now is whether or not the the decline in iphone sales signals that consumers are going are starting to tighten up on their pocketbooks. And they're just going to be more careful about spending because they have less confidence in the in the economy going forward, and that might be a reasonable response. And what do you think the reasons why the fun companies suffer, first and foremost? Well, don't big niggers kind of really escaped from the economic fundamental performance. Because you see that stand. The bull found hundred in that has dropped significantly by over forty points. And that you know, anti is a cluster of those are logically, heavy companies has dropped by two point seven percents. So the also recently the Scannel in Nissan has also created a big turmoi- on.

I love what Shawn McVeigh's doing with them, and he's, he just always kind of keeps them in the right frame of mind, and we'll have a story on that. And just a second today is national, speak like a pirate day. Did you know that are I heard I heard Matthew berry doing it on the fancy football podcast ESPN what's out this morning? I was wondering why that must be it. Who is your favorite pirate Michael of all time, any kind of pirate any relationship to a pirate. Give me a Pittsburg pirate can be a Tampa Bay. Buccaneer could be a pirate in a movie. I like to know you from being from the Caribbean, having Carribean blood. And so do I today will why don't we glorify pirates? Think of it. Think of what we're doing here I say, hey, who's your favorite thug? This is not this question. The definition. Pillages rapes and steals and robs and kills think about that. They come to steal from you. They come to, you know, the rage, your turmoi- think about it. Think about the Pittsburgh Pirates. Let's name our team, the Pittsburgh the eaves. Why does the difference think about it? What the parent is yet? We glorify them. I mean when I used to watch commercials for McDonald's and I was a kid, they had the hamburglar. Well, that was. Have a burger. Yeah, we glorify pirates and like for instance, the Somali pirates. Yeah. Well, they don't glorify them kinda do. I mean you made a movie about him. You know. The movie was about them getting over on the Somali. I'm Ben being able to see it. But I, I would say the most famous of the greatest pirate of all the bad guy I was they are probably Blackbeard. I love Blackbeard. I mean, I remember captain hook from Peter Pan growing up. I, I remember watching Swiss family Robinson remember though. Yeah, I do remember that was in the plan. You actually saw that. That's. Yeah, so that when I was so black bears might pirate because he, he terrorized the waters of the Bahamas. Look if there are any pirates out there listening. I'm glad that Michael was put you into propaganda ex. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, that pirates out. Exactly. I show Bill Simmons was on WFAN with Mike francesa and they got into the conversation about lavar ball, and I thought the conversation was somewhat fascinating. It was about kind of his involvement in how he's been a little bit under wraps lately, lavar. Here's Bill and Mike francesa on WFAN. I have a feeling he's gonna kinda disappear. Okay. Prediction. You know, that's a big prediction that he's going to disappear because he's usually very chatty. I think it's going to be member when Serena's dad was an issue for a long time. I didn't. We just kind of never heard from him anywhere, and this is that's that's a pretty good getting a name, a nice paycheck. NAT to really be heard from them. Okay. Okay. So he got hush money. Okay. That's not a bad talking that goodfellas like Billy that, but he got. I laughed, no way. That's a big story. You know, if if he got hush money, that's a big. That's a big story. If he got hush money, that's I like that. Put them on the payroll of basically not talk interesting that make a big deal out of thing. Do you buy? I don't put that list. First of all, it wouldn't be illegal if they did do that. And again, this I, I don't know if Bill is speculating there. I don't know what's happening there, but it wouldn't be legal because you can the one area you can spend without any ramifications is your team, your organization, the front office, etc. All that kind of stuff. Do you buy that as even theory that the Laker sort of put him on the payroll of just be quiet? Yeah, no, magic magic and Pelinka a magic genie, they, they would never stoop feel like they're stupid. They don't pay attention to what lavar says, not as long as the VAR doesn't rip Lukens coaching and rip the teammates. He can have all the funny ones. Magic doesn't pay attention to that. I've actually, I've watched the last couple of episodes of ball in the family, which I actually enjoy, especially the Lonzo parts and the Vars, really right now worried about his younger, two sons..

"Wherever you get your podcasts. This is on point. I'm Magna trucker Bharti. We're talking about what might happen in this week coming up in the news because it seems as if every week brings a lot of big news I'm joined today by Josh Gerstein. He senior White House reporter for politico. We Jiang also with us. She's White House correspondent for CBS news and Erin. Blake joins us as well senior political reporter at the Washington Post. And I just want to play a quick bit of tape here. This is from Saturday Anaheim, California President. Barack Obama told the crowd there that in times of great uncertainties some politician politicians in Obama's words seek to divide people and that leads to more problems. For politici- for their own game and for people in power. To try to see by people. Sago turmoi-. Because it happens. You get gridlock and work, and people get cynical, participate Barack Obama in California on Saturday. And of course, Bo Obama is trying to turn out to democratic votes in the midterm elections coming up here. Let's take a quick call. Kathleen is calling from aims Ville, Ohio. You're on the air, Kathleen high, you know, I am. You know, I am amazed by me. I can't stand Trump, never could would've never voted for him in a trillion years. However, I do get tired of I, I couldn't stand the way the right wing media and our reps, you know, Republican reps just, you know, blocked everything Obama was trying to do. And now I'm really sick of the left wing media mad Al and joy Reid. And I mean, I love them on so many issues, but they just you turn on MSNBC and this just anti-trump anti-trump anti-trump. And then I questioned there unbridled adoration of Bob Woodward group think Woodward who went along with the run up to the invasion of Iraq. And also said that the play mounting was much ado about nothing because his words verbatim as well as the New York Times. Who would these anonymous sources come on? They had Judy blinking. I was blanking right Miller put one article after another about WMD's in Iraq. So I don't trust Woodward or the New York Times, especially in regard to anonymous sources. Kathleen let me pick it up from there because I appreciate your thought and I wanna turn into Erin, Blake senior political reporter at the Washington Post. What do you think about about Kathleen doubt regarding, but Woodward especially. Anytime you write a book like this, which is based upon almost universally interviews conducted on what's called deep background, which is basically, you know, nobody is going to be quoted by name, but there are direct quotes. That's the drawback of it. You get the inside information. Aaron, you still with us. We've dropped lost his line. We're going to pick that up as soon as we can. Josh Gerstein. Let me turn to you here. I mean, one thing the Bob Woodward has said is that he, he recorded all the conversations he had with his sources and has transcripts of them. He's, of course still not going to identify who's sources were but confident enough to have lots of of supporting material for what he's put in his book. Yeah. I mean, I'm confident that the bulk of what's in the book is accurate mainly for the reason that we was talking about earlier, which is there such a broad consistency in the stories that we're hearing from various people in various news outlets. The notion that every news outlet is fabricating all the stories that they're making up about the Trump White House seems to me to border on insane. Now, one can question whether any specific anecdote or story is true in his Aaron was getting at one of the difficulties or challenges with this type of sourcing is Bob Wilbert is recreating anecdotes and events that took place that he was not present at. And then when it's presented in a story, it's often not or rather in the book. It's not in typical journalistic form. It doesn't say for people president or for people who've talked to senior officials who are senior officials, say, it simply says this happened, there was a meeting on this date and you know, General Mattis strode into the room and said, you can't do this in North Korea mister president. And so there's a narrative style there. The tends to make the..

President Trump Exemplifies Republican values and she says because she sees five values is paramount and let's quickly Sal you said the economy abortion and what are your. Other top values on the Republican side Can you hear me I can't yeah Okay that there is you're saying, that third, ones found in the preamble the constitution it's where promote the general welfare, does not say provide, free? Food stamps all, this free stuff right but just says work to give them a hand, up and the other two definitely, Republicans and. That's how Trump kills. Too. I think. And, the other two three? That's three. Well I voted for Reagan and he, always said peace through strength you, don't get. Peace through weakness right. And. Number five. Strengths The fifth one Uh-huh I don't want sharia law and I know that we have a constitution and I know that twenty the last I knew twenty two states for outline sharia. Law You can only have the this dead like call says you can't serve two masters you can't. Have the US constitution and you can't have sharia law while you can't have love the love of money and the love of God away way way way way Sally Sally just hold on because I think you may be misunderstanding. Something here I honestly don't know anyone in in America including the two Muslim, members of congress two out. Of five hundred thirty five I don't know anybody who favors installing sharia law as the law of the land either nationally or statewide or even locally I've, never heard that In, Tampa Bay Florida in their Miami Herald there was. A, an issue I had I was looking for it by we went to. Break but they the Democrats put forth Baylor attack remember three sixty five but they put forth a Bill for foreign law, in, our, court system so that and then recently no no no way honestly. Sally Sally people people people are taking advantage of you on this honestly that kind, of Bill when they say foreign law. In our court system what they're saying is they fight back and forth about whether judges should be able to sight when. They are giving opinions The the way that other countries have. Seen legal issues for, instance it should it be legitimate for someone when deciding a death penalty. Case to say well the, law, in, France says, this, and by the, way I I tend to agree with you that. It's, inappropriate to cite foreign law but to have a specific law that says, you can't cite any legal precedent that isn't here in the United States is kind of needlessly restrictive appreciate appreciate your call And at least we got a list here no, sharia law peace through strength no free, stuff no abortion and, a robust. Economy I think some of those things are definitely Republican. Values particularly, peace through strength Republicans have tended to be certainly since the Eisenhower administration at the very least very. Much pro, military and pro national defense let's go to James in Cleveland James you're on the, Michael, Medved Show yeah well if you said that from represents the, Republicans which he really does now taking over the party no one talks, against if you do you lose your turmoi-, fires you so the me represent the Republican party and their values and frankly I don't think he. Has any decent one You know. The large government cares about power and money now you. Can talk, about moral standards you can track that one James can I ask? You can, I ask you a question don't you believe that President Trump wants. The United States, to be. Powerful and prosperous because again I think President. Trump like every politician wants, people to, love him he wants people. Love. Him, he wants to have his face. On Rushmore, he wants, people to say President Trump thank you for making America great again. He wants? All of, those things so he I mean you've got. To acknowledge the guy wants good things. For his country doesn't he Good things worth fell stuff that you saying no. I'm saying his, country because. The only the only way he can get. Some good things for himself, right now, because he's president of the. United. States, is by doing well for the. Country he's, not going, to be popular and beloved if America takes it in the rear. End is He's already unpopular with. Over three hundred billion what people in the. Voting thing so that is a record but Mike It's not three. Hundred million the, country is divided. James and right. So this is the thing. Mike. That the guy says he has he's trash them all you don't it's not. Propaganda you can watch the. News okay Does okay, but again here's the problem at one of the things that happens in the news and this is not just about from it's, about anything is the news highlights scandal. And when things are negative when things are embarrassing the good things that he does like this deregulation which has. Actually been very positive gets, almost no attention because it's not exciting they they began the press briefing today he got these bodies back. From the Korean war that the. North Koreans had been holding for, a, long time it's not a huge. Deal but it is to. Those families and it's a, good thing. For the country and for, the national honor and that gets almost. No attention let's, go to Kevin. In Houston Kevin. You're on the Michael Medved. Show Thank you Michael can you. Hear me yes sir okay of my basically my number one. Thing is I I kind of want limited government and strong borders, legal immigration those are things that Trump believe then we'll also. Think. The Republican, party is all about deficit and debt reduction and we are doing that at all I mean the the lower taxes has brought in more revenues but what he's doing is spending money, like drunken sailor and, it's not just Trump it's the congress to obviously the congress is going along with it I think it's a very real problem, it's, one of the things that I. One of the reasons I have a problem with the space force because the space force if it ever goes. Forward is going to cost, billions and billions of dollars the problem here is that Democrats are even worse in California they're now estimating. A hundred billion dollars for the. So-called bullet train which initially is, going, to connect Fresno to San Francisco And actually deliver you to at about. Five times the cost and the same timing as it would. Cost to dry there and the the investment by both parties in, various spending priorities that don't make any sense at all Is problematic and I do think it give creates a big opening in. American, politics for somebody to run both locally for Senate or for governor and talk about. Fiscal responsibility because that hasn't magically disappeared as a need for the country just because we are in a economic, boom at the moment meanwhile speaking booms or there has been a big boom in what's called hashtag me too so why is a very prominent feminist now being defended when she seems to be guilty of extreme sexual harassment we'll get to this interesting story and from NYU coming up on the Medved show Hey. This is Todd Herman for thirty ten weight. Loss for life you know one. Of the things that they remind people of is that you're worth it here's what you're worth. Is imagine yourself lighter matching yourself at a weight that's appropriate for your body with your body chooses to burn.
