End of Abe era leaves Japan still searching for way forward
"Your Shahida Suda as the country's new prime minister on Monday. 71 year old Mr Suder was overwhelmingly elected as the leader of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, replacing Shinzo Abe has dominated Japanese politics for the past eight years. Mr was expected to serve until the end of next year, but announced suddenly he was stepping down last month, pleading poor health. There's now concerned that Japan could be about to return to what became known as revolving door politics when the country changed Prime Minister's almost every year, Rupert Wingfield Hayes reports. Yeah. You see that pit shuttle get this's something No one would have predicted even a few weeks ago. 71 year old Yoshida super being proclaimed leader of Japan's all powerful Liberal Democratic Party. And by default, the country's new prime minister. Mr Sugar is not known for his charisma or his oratory. And as he made his rather ponderous victory speech, you can hear why you know anybody. Ronnie. Still cocaine. I want to break down bureaucratic divisions invested interests, he says on the blind adherence to president indication to form a cabinet that will work hard for the people. That takes a kike Agos, Cary Most Japanese, No, Mr Sugar as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's long serving grim faced spokesman Up till now. He has always been a backroom guy. A fixer. He has none of the charm or diplomatic skills. Mr Abba used TTO win over President Donald Trump. But according to those who know him like economists and long term Tokyo resident Yes, Bacall, Mr Sugar brings other attributes to the game. Here is a man who gets up at five o'clock in the morning. Does 100 sit ups and then reads all the newspapers and by 6 30. He's starting meetings right with business people with advisers, you know, with outside economists, he absorbs like a sponge and wants to get things done for the country. He's not interested in any of the glitz or blink that comes with war nongovernment. The problem for Mr Suder. Is he has no mandate from the Japanese people. His elevation to the top job was a stitch up by L. V P. Party bosses in smoke filled back rooms. Perhaps because of that much is being made of Mr Segers Humble background. The son of a strawberry farmer, he worked in a cardboard factory to pay his way through college. He's certainly very different from most of Japan's recent prime ministers like Mr Abbott, the silent of a powerful political dynasty, but in the scheming world of Japanese politics Rashid, a circus. Humble origins could also be his undoing. According to Professor Koichi Nakano of Tokyo's Sophia University. Mr Silva comes from a humble background. He really doesn't have his own power base. You know, he doesn't belong to any faction on DH. He actually, you know, Rose to power because he was Mr B's preferred choice on the party bosses rally behind him, You know, emergency situation. But once the emergency situation is gone, and once the party bosses study realized that they're not getting all they wanted. I'm sure there's going to be past trouble. They're both from

Before Resigning, Prime Minister Makes A Final Push To Strengthen Japan's Military
"Abe, Japan's longest serving prime minister, is stepping down this week after eight years in office. With his career ending he has made a final push to strengthen Japan's military. As NPR's Anthony Koon reports from Seoul. That push could affect the balance of power in Asia. At a press briefing last month to announce his resignation, Arbet said the country faces and increasingly harsh security environment for North Korea has greatly improved its ballistic missile capabilities. He said he questioned if it's enough just to be able to intercept those missiles. And later suggested Japan also needs a missile arsenal as a deterrent. That could alter the security landscape in Asia. Sheila Smith, the Japan expert at the Council on Foreign Relations, points out that at the moment, Japan is the only country in Northeast Asia that does not maintain ballistic missiles. One of Bob's career long goals has been to throw off post World War two restrictions on Japan's military. He failed to revise Japan's constitution in which Japan gives up the right to wage war. But in 2015, he did push through legislation allowing Japan to deploy troops overseas in support of allies. At the time. He explained it like this. I know From tomorrow, no more. Let us no longer turn a blind eye to the changes in the environment and remain idle said he urged Japanese to be more confident. They also oversaw the making of Japan's first aircraft carriers since World War two President Trump boarded one of them on a visit to Japan last year and praised his host. I want to thank my friend. And your prime minister. Is an extraordinary man. His commitment to improving Japan's defense capabilities. Which also advances the security of the United States of America. President Trump is questioned the need to protect wealthy allies like Japan, who he says don't pay their fair share of defense costs. Matsuhisa Sato, a lawmaker with the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, says that even before Trump, Japan knew that the U. S was weary from decades of foreign wars, almost taken taking a soldier's gotta move. No Sekai. No case took President Obama said that the U. S is going to stop being, the world's policeman says, and the lawmaker added the trend of countries taking more responsibility for their own defence will continue. Regardless of who the new U. S president is Washington in Tokyo insist their alliance remains ironclad. But doubts about America's commitment are driving the Japanese debate about missile defense. Sheila Smith of the Council on Foreign Relations, says this represents a shift in Japanese people's thinking they've grown up with the U. S. Japan Alliance says the you know like the framework within which Japan thinks about its security. They don't have A conversation. I've never really had a thought process in their public policy debate that says So, what do we do if the alliance doesn't work? Former defense official Kyoji Ah Nagasawa argues that Japan now faces twin risks in its alliance with the US home Tonight. One risk, he says, is that the U. S. Might abandon Japan thie. Other growing risk, he says, is that the U. S. May drag Japan into an unnecessary conflict, for example, with China He says Japan should focus on diplomatic solutions such as mediating between Washington and Beijing, rather than seeking new weapons. The outcome of Japan's internal debate on missile defense will become clear by year's end. When Shinzo Abe successor and his government roll out a new policy. Anthony Kun, NPR news soul
Under Trump, US reputation hits rock-bottom: Pew global survey
"For the past three and a half years the united. States has not been very favorably viewed by other Western countries that's according to survey results from the Pew Research Center but a new study they paula shows that our reputation has taken even deeper nosedive just over the past year Jacob poster is at Pugh in Washington Jacob Pugh does a lot of surveys and this is not the first one about America's image what made this survey nick. Well, we've actually been doing surveys for twenty years now, and we've been tracking the international image of the US during that time period and in the current survey in two thousand and twenty, we're finding some the lowest ratings we've ever found among traditional allies of the United States in terms of US favorability including in Japan, the UK Canada you know more than four in ten have positive views of the United States and these are some of the lowest levels of favorability we've ever measured for the United States. The title of the survey says a lot. I think US image plummets internationally as most say country's handled corona virus badly. So how did your survey respondents about the US and the corona virus like what was one of the questions? Where we ask people on whether various countries including their own were doing a good job of dealing with the corona virus outbreak and on that question when we asked about it for the United States, no more than twenty percent and any of the thirteen countries that we surveyed said, the United States was doing a good job of dealing with the krona virus outbreak and that's different from what people told us about their own countries and most of the. Countries we surveyed people were actually fairly happy with how their own country had dealt with the outbreak. The there are places where the US image is seen more positively than other places. What country had the most people who thought the US was responding well to the coronavirus in terms of response to the coronavirus no country was over twenty percent. But when it comes to the US favorability, there are countries were a majority still have a favorable view of. The US, but that number has shrunk dramatically in the last year. South. Korea's one country where fifty nine percent have a favorable view of the US. But even there that's down almost twenty points from two thousand nineteen when seventy seven percent favourable view of the US
Why airlines are launching 'flights to nowhere'
"Again. Well, how about a flight to nowhere? Dick illness might be for you. Eva Air. Recently offered what amounted to a site seeing tour with a special flight to satisfy passengers.

World isn't meeting biodiversity goals, UN report finds
"The number of plants and animals on the planet that are at risk today would be far higher without globally agreed safeguards in action to protect him but it still far from good enough UN by diversity exports sat on Tuesday in call for far greater commitment from only Chicago to safeguard human wellbeing in the planet's the body that oversees these work. The Convention on biodiversity urged those gathering for UN summit at the end of the. Month to broaden their ambition from the convention. Here's Executive Secretary Elizabeth Marina Deputy Executive Secretary David Cooper talking to UN uses Daniel Johnson just if you wouldn't mind Elizabeth Merima give me the classification of diversity and in particular why is it important in simple words by devastate is everything around us and when I say everything around us, it means everything we do as human activities affected by busy. Each could be what we do on the land what we're doing. What we do in the forest, what we do on species, animals, plants, I mean, what we do is we produce our food as we consume all by diversities. So our human actions in the nature of virus around us and what we're finding is that if fact but diversity is in massive trouble and your report from the conventional biological diversity, the UN Conventional Biological Diversity tells us that only six out of the world's twenty goals on biodiversity have. been achieved only partially achieved by the deadline, which is actually this year. So to be honest I wasn't aware that the governments of the world had agreed in Japan twenty ten to a series of biodiversity targets and you're saying that only six of twenty goals of being partially achieved by the two thousand twenty deadline. So what is the concern? Which of these? Obviously a very bad report card where have we gone wrong and please don't say everywhere. No because they some progress. But indeed unfortunately by diversity's declining it unprecedented level rate and precious deriving they decline unfortunately. So increasing just as underlying. So indeed this scorecard, his only identify six of the twenties so not even half in the seats. In the areas of deforestation, where at least deforestation is gone down by Fed or two percent fisheries. Management fisheries catches also improved clearly indicating where appropriate policies on fisheries management have been put in place. Then the fishery cage hazing and abundance is increased and improved education of alien species. Particularly from the islands Z. Qualley improved protected areas has increased from ten percent to fifteen percent in terrestrial in three to seven percents on marine areas we also learned my says extinction fishes extension at really threatened in the history of mankind still where conservation measures they've been put in place every improved and reduce extinction of species without which. We and be waste than what we are talking today I think joining us now we are very fortunate have Mr David Cooper. Deputy Executive Secretary of the UN. Conventional. Biological, diversity. Welcome to you Mr Cooper. Thank you very much. Daniel. Thank you ever so much for joining us. We were just talking there with Elizabeth, my executive secretary on the really mixed report card. I. Think that's the charitable worth putting it off. The biodiversity targets that was back in two, thousand ten. So a decade on. We've got six of twenty goals partially achieved although Elizabeth was saying that the has been some good work on eliminating foreign species from islands and in the fisheries to and other national programs that perhaps you could tell me a bit more about to give us maybe a little bit of positive news. What is a pretty Hesse mystic outlook for humankind and also forbade diversity moving forward? Yes. Thank you very much indeed even in those targets that haven't been pasta passages talks that haven't been achieved. Is. Some signs the progress as as in his methods as as mentioned in which Houston deforestation rates in fooding fisheries management in dealing with invasive alien species and in reducing. Rate. So numbers of bird mammal extinctions that occurred over the past ten years or indeed over the life of the Convention would bean at least to perhaps up to four times higher without the actions of being taken. So one clear message despite the disappointing results one clear message is policies do work if they are put in place and implemented, and so we need to learn from that we. Need to be encouraged by that, we need to step up those policies more widely in order to reduce the greater biodiversity loss. The report also shows that if he wants to actually not only we do survey to biodiversity loss that Ben that curve and put me on a path to recovery than more fundamental actions also needed looking at the way we produce and consume food in particular that. Sustainable production and consumption captains more broadly as well. I'm just going to dive in that because the report is pretty alarming and I'm very glad to hear about some of these national projects that have been successful in. Boosting bio-diversity, but the report says that the rate of biodiversity loss is unprecedented in human history I guess we did know that really and precious intensifying and living as a whole being compromised, and of course, we can't have this discussion without talking about covert and how the degradation of our natural environment has I suppose, but closer into contact with viruses in the natural world, is that the kind of thing that's really going to galvanize support for greater support for native greater protection for nature if we don't do so we're going to be huge trouble ourselves forms. Suddenly I I. Hope. So there's Very clear evidence as you say that the degradation of of ecosystems encroachment into international areas, unregulated wildlife trade, these things. Increase the risk of emergence of future. Disease increase the risk of future pandemics, and conversely, if we can invest in conservation an investigation regulating control wildlife trade, we will reduce those risks. So these are suddenly Lead important reasons on top of wanting to prevent six-man south extinction. These really positive reasons also for investing in IDA versity.

This popularity certainly wasn't the case when the painting was I hung in the Leuven eighteen o four or for the century subsequent. Neither was popular with critics when the artistic elite who often relegated it to the low end of DAVINCI's work it was basically just another painting. It was so unsocial in fact that it took the better part of twenty four hours before staff even noticed the painting was missing in Nineteen. Eleven. A handyman named Vincenzo Perrugia was working in the museum and he simply waited in a closet until after the museum had closed. Tuck to the painting under his smock walked on out. He was unwittingly aided by a plumber also working in the museum who unlocked a for Peruta when he found himself stuck inside. The police were called and they searched the museum. The only sign they found the Japan Kanda was frame laying on a staircase. Though police did find some twenty one other paintings in the museum. The curator's had previously reported missing. The. Search went citywide then national then international. Ships were searched before they left France or after arriving in their port of call. A reward of over half a million dollars in today's money was offered. The Mona Lisa's picture was printed in newspapers all over the world. It became a of Mona Lisa Mania. The theft of this single painting served a spawn multiple criminal enterprises. People on the wrong side of the law knew that those with more money than morals would want to buy. LEGITIM- Kanda. A pair of confidence men from Belgium hired a small army of forgers to make quality fakes, which they then sold to select around the globe. They made sure their buyers were unlikely to ever meet and rested soundly knowing that no one would let on that they had purchased the most famous stolen painting in the world. Though today, one of them would probably take a selfie with it. The huge reward and the number of fakes in circulation meant the police were inundated with leads. For two years they searched tirelessly. But Fruitlessly The sixty man strong force even interviewed, Peruta Twice. But decided, he couldn't be the criminal mastermind they were looking for. Not only did those two years not yield the Mona Lisa the police didn't even find the forgeries. The head of the Paris police retired in shame. Did, peruse, you get an enormous payday for the stolen painting. People were soon to learn that he didn't steal it for money. When ferruccio approached museum in Florence to sell them the painting, the museum's director called the police instead. After. His arrest Russia's stated. I worked in the Louvre making frames for paintings stolen from Italy by France every day I pass login Kanda and swore I would return it to its rightful home. He seemed convinced he would be heralded as a hero. This was sadly not the case but the Italian courts were sympathetic giving him only a year in prison for the world famous theft.

"I don't think you folks in the Obama. Administration failed because I don't think you really had plausible tools to prevent China. Let's say from militarising parts of the South China Sea. I think we have to barren mind our overall position and not get consumed by every tactical setback. You know if if you're the Washington well I was GONNA say the Redskins ahead thirty five nothing if you're if you're in the New England patriots ahead thirty five to nothing you can afford to give up five and ten yards sometimes and by the way maybe there's no alternative so what were the realistic tools to stop China China from building a few airfields on fiery for so. I don't think we physically could have shot their construction. Cranes off the island we could have gone to a strategy more like what trump's doing now sooner and used economic warfare against a security move by China but I think it would have been a little bit premature for the seriousness of the transgression transgressions which I think was concerning but still in the scheme of things by the standards of nation state and great power behavior dredging up and then developing unmanned islands islands in the scale of human history is not a particularly offensive action by the standards of great power behavior but if things go to the next level if they take a Senkaku island claimed by both Japan and China administered by Japan. We've said the treaty of the US Japan Security Treaty should apply to the Senkaku islands even though we don't have a US position on WHO's islands they rightfully should be a but if China were to take one. We have to do something more than you folks did. In the Obama years with the South China Sea reclaimed islands but I don't think we go to world war three over that or even literal and symmetrical lethal use of military force because it's just too dangerous for the steaks and you can't let China get away with that either you gotta do something. The thing that prevents the next step prevents them from getting ambitious because they've gotten away with this first move so that's where I want to basically ensure create a defensive perimeter that prevents prevents further transgressions and then apply graduated form of economic warfare as our major punishment strategy and I don't expect this to necessarily liberate that one you know hypothetically authentically occupied Senkaku very quickly but I don't think we need to the main thing. Is We need to prevent the problem from getting worse so that's where I think we should again bear in mind our overall strength. We're we're we're in a pretty good overall grand strategic position vis-a-vis our alliances vis-a-vis China we don't need to obsess over each and every islet but we do need a strategy that prevents the conquest of one islet from that wedding the appetite for much more dangerous actions so the asymmetric strategy is for defense. That's been fortified defied but does not draw first blood combined with economic warfare designed to inflict punishment even if that punishment may or may not produce a reversal of the initial Chinese action Shen anytime soon so one of the interesting things I think and questions in this area symmetric defense approach that you raise is one that you brought up earlier are which is how allies and partners respond so tell me because I can certainly anticipate a situation where the US moves with this asymmetric defense and we focus on economic retribution which as you said we'll play out over time and that a Eh Japan per se but comes increasingly worried under increasing domestic pressure at home because yes it's it's a rock but it hasn't been liberated and it's in Chinese hands so talk to me about how you think the US should deal with reassurance parents of our allies in this kind of approach so with your permission to start with the flip answer and then be a little more serious. Thank the flip answer. Sir Is our job is Japan's ally is to have Japan's back keeping their people and their economy and their main territory safe. Our job is not to either therapist..

It means more than anything else. Far more American jobs, and these are high quality jobs there also strong provisions to enforce what's called the rules of origin requirements. This will incentivize billions of dollars a new purchases of US made automobiles once approved. This will be a new dawn for the American auto industry. And for the American auto worker. They will see they understand. They voted for us in large numbers. Even though they're leadership. Always goes democrat. Couple of them said to me, I don't know how I can do it again, many of them the leaders would back Democrats and would tell me you're going to get most of the votes from union workers, and we got most of the votes for workers period. But. The American auto worker was very much behind what we were doing as one primary aspect. It will transform North America back into a manufacturing powerhouse fear. Remember, the previous administration said we're not gonna have manufacturing jobs anymore, essentially. We're not gonna have we're not gonna make things anymore. Now, just the opposite going to be a manufacturing powerhouse at allow us to reclaim a supply chain that has been off shored to the world because of unfair trade issues. We also provide brand new intellectual property protections for biologic drugs, which will make North America haven for medical innovation and development. We want our drugs to be made here when you talk prescription drugs, we don't like getting them from foreign countries. We don't know what's happening with those drugs how they're being made to important. This landmark agreement will send cash in jobs pouring into the United States and into North America. Good for Canada good for Mexico instead of jobs leaving for overseas. They will be returning back home, and we've already had it. We have many many car companies. I was with prime minister of Japan. He said we have sent many car companies to the United States over the last year and a half. It's true and big expansions. And very importantly, he said many more coming because they have an incentive now to be here. People want to be back in the United States again, as I say, the United States is respected again, but it's also respected as to trade and industry. This is C span radio programming from Monday WCS from Washington. This is a truly extraordinary agreement for the United States, Canada and Mexico. President pain yet though. Is so important. That the president, and I have developed this sort of a bond, abandoned trade. Nato a man that has done a very good job for Mexico in terms of trade and prime minister Trudeau who I just spoke to just book to both of them a little while ago. They love their countries they wanna do right for their countries. And that's what they've done, and we really formed if you look at this agreement before the great partnership with Mexico. And with Canada, and I plan to sign the agreement by the end of November by then we'll submit it for approval to congress where in theory, there should be no trouble. But anything you submit to congress is trouble. No matter what the single greatest agreement ever signed. They'll say, well, you know, Trump likes it. Therefore, we're not going to approve it because that would be good for the Republicans. So therefore, we can't. But it will be. Cinta congress pursuant to the trade promotion authority act. Disagreement follows on the heels of our successful completion of a new and balanced trade deal with South Korea. Tremendous difference in that deal from what it was. It was a disaster as I said to improve the old deal that it killed so many jobs. It also follows on our announcement last week of a new trade negotiation with Japan Japan would never negotiate with the United States. They say we're not going to negotiate. They told the previous administration. We're not going to negotiate. Should you don't have to negotiate? But we're going to put a very very substantial tax on your car. If you don't by the way without tariffs. We wouldn't be talking about a deal just for those babies out there that keep talking about terrorists that includes congress. Oh, please. Don't charge tariffs. Without tariffs. You wouldn't be. We wouldn't be standing here. I can tell you Bob, and all of these folks would not be standing here right now. And we're totally prepared to do that. If they don't negotiate, but Japan is wanting to negotiate actually they called about three weeks ago. And. He's a terrific, man. Terrific just had a tremendous victory, and they said we'd like to start negotiations immediately. India? Which is the tariff king. They called us, and they say we want to start negotiations immediately. When Bob lighthizer said what happened? You would never do this. They said, no, we want to keep your president happy is that nice nice to keep us happy because they understand that. We're wise to what's been happening. India charges tariffs have one hundred percent. And then if we want to put a tariff of twenty five percent on people will call from congress, but that's not free trade. And I'd look back to people say where do these people come from? Where do they come from? So because of the power of tariffs and the power that we have with tariffs. We in many cases won't even have to use them. That's how powerful they are. And how good they are. But in many cases, we're not going to have to use them, and many many cases countries that are charging massive tariffs are eliminating those stairs, as you know, we have two hundred and fifty billion dollars at twenty five percent interest with China right now. And we could go two hundred sixty seven billion dollars more and China wants to talk very badly. And I said, frankly, it's too early to talk can't talk now because they're not ready because they've been ripping us for so many years. It doesn't happen that quickly. And if politically people force it too quickly, you're not gonna make the right deal for workers and for our country, but Jonah wants to talk and we want to talk to them. And we want them to help us with North Korea. We want them to continue to help us with North Korea. That's very important the European Union. It's been very tough on the United States last year. And for many years they've lost in the vicinity of one hundred fifty billion dollars a year. They have massive trade barriers, and they didn't wanna come. They didn't wanna talk John Claude great business person. Head of the European Union. Jean-claude, my friend. I'd say Lord we wanna make a deal. He goes. No, no, no. We are very happy. I said you may be happy. But I'm not happy because we have one of the worst deals of any group. We have one of the worst deals with the European Union. And they just didn't want to come because they were happy with the deal. I said, but we're not happy with the deal and finally after going through the whole process, I said, look, we're just going to put a tax of twenty percents on all of the millions of Mercedes and BMW's all of the cars of millions and millions of cars that they sell here that they won't take over there. Farm product that they won't take over there because they barriers you can't sell. You're not allowed to our farmers aren't allowed to sell over there. Many of their products much of their products most of them. And so I announced we're gonna put a twenty percent tariff could be twenty five on their cars coming in and they're mmediately called and said we'd like to start negotiations, and we're having a successful negotiation. We'll see what happens who knows. I always say who knows? But we'll see I have a feeling we'll be successful a pillar of national security as economic security and trade. National security is not what we lose hundreds of billions of dollars a year over the last five years. We've averaged eight hundred billion dollars a year loss on trade. How dumb is that eight hundred billion dollars? This group doesn't know about those numbers. I don't even want them to hear those. But the United States and its trade deals has lost on average almost eight hundred billion dollars a year, that's dealing with China dealing with European Union with everybody Japan. Mexico Canada everybody, and we're not going to allow that to happen. But we have to have a strong manufacturing base and manufacturing sector. We need a thriving economy. Those are all really essential ingredients to national security. We can't allow what's been happening over the last twenty five years to happen. We're building our military like never before it will be the strongest ever was and all of those jets that have made and rockets and missiles and ships they're all being made in the United States jobs. Our economy is booming like never before jobless claims are at a fifty year, low the stock market is at a all time high. Think of that over fifty percents in smile election. Fifty percent people the 4._0._1._K's, and they have 4._0._1._K's and they were dying with them for years. Now there are so happy. I was telling the story I often tell of a policeman in New York came up his wife was always very upset with him as an investor because he wasn't doing well with the 4._0._1._K's. Now, she thinks he's a genius because the numbers are so crazy, but we're up over fifty percent since the election. And you've heard me say this many time, but African American unemployment Asian unemployment Hispanic unemployment is at record lows in history. Not for the last two years the history of our country African American Asian Hispanic. Young people without high school diplomas all at historic. It's a very important sector. All at historic lows the lowest in history. It's really something. That's great. This is helping so much with. People to get out of prison. We have a tremendous problem people come out of prison. They can't get a job employers. Don't wanna hire them the economy is so good. They're hiring them. And they're turning out to be incredible workers. They give it a chance. It really give it a second. Given a third chance in some cases. But I've had numerous employers come up sale. Tell you what I've taken people that were in prison and we've hired them. He wouldn't have done this in a normal economy or bad economy, only in this kind of an economy, and now he's like the biggest fan one man in particular. It's taken numerous people. He said most of them have been unbelievable. You could ask as most. But most of them have been unbelievable. That's a great thing. It's a really great thing. It gives them a chance. So before we take questions I want to extend our warmest condolences to the country of Indonesia. Friend of mine, we're going to be calling up the leader. Who is a great leader. Indeed. But they got hit by a giant soon. Nami. Like people have not seen this part of the world hasn't seen it so much. Fortunately, they say that's the worst of all you look at the tornadoes the hurricanes. You look at all of the different natural disasters friend of mine who studies natural disasters. I don't know why he does that. But he does he says the suit salami is the worst of all and they got hit very hard and probably thousands of people killed. We have already sent a lot of first responders and military and others to help. But it's a really bad bad situation. And finally before closing I want to send our thoughts and prayers to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting. That was a horrible horrible. Time in the life of our country. Took place exactly one year ago today all of America is grieving for the lives lost and for the families. They left behind so to all of those families and to the people of Las Vegas. We love you.
