C's Kim Tunnicliffe has that, Education commissioner Jeffrey Riley says, Like it or not, M cast tests will be back in the spring after the cancellation of the 2020 assessment exams. Damps. There is a bill on Beacon Hill that would suspend the M CASS exams for four years due to the pandemic. But Education board member Matt Hills believes that would be the wrong thing to do is just unconscionable to go a second year, especially with all that this rock and not have a view as to what's working and what not, I understand the politics and the rhetoric is going to get really heated. It's a horrible policy to avoid giving in, supporters argue students need a break and shouldn't Have to worry about covert 19 along with a high stakes testing. Kim Tana Cliff W. B. Z Boston's

Direct Connections - Chuck & Matt McMurray

"All right introducing my guests for the first edition of direct connections. Chuck mcmurray and his son. Matthew mcmurray guys. Are you doing good good and happy Easter by the way Yeah Happy Easter? Do you guys to before we get into your current mo par endeavors. Let's rewind time a little bit and chocolate start with you. What got you into Mope ours. So it's an interesting thing. There was a A nineteen eighty eight hot rod magazine. Maybe it was car craft and they had the the top ten fastest cars of all time and they were measuring the cars in various road courses in quarter miles and things like that and so you know at the age of thirteen. I was really into like Lamborghini. Coon Tauch Ferraris did not the cars and car that owned the quarter mile for that particular top. Ten that they did was a sixty two Max Wedge Dart Right which is the opposite looking of a Lamborghini coon touch and I was just completely floored that something that was that ugly could be that fast and so that kind of caught my eye and from then on I just started picking up reading magazines and kind of following the Mo par story and of course once you get into the four twenty six Hemi content and you realize how many engines they own in straight line racing. They've been pretty much the dominant force when it comes to top fuel and those types of engines and things and so I stuck with it then Got Into my own cars. When I was fourteen. My Dad let me by a seventy four valiant with three hundred bucks out of a walgreens parking lot in Chicago knew nothing about it. You know toward the slant six out and and learned the hard way and After that got into a sixty six cornet and from then on it was it became pretty natural to me to be able to fix stuff was always kind of good with my hands and just fell in love with the brand which was weird because in the early nineties you know. Mo- par didn't have nearly what they have today. Or what the late sixties so sure it was definitely a hard time to be the underdogs so to speak. Definitely Matthew. What about you? Obviously your dad had to have some sort of influence on you and your love of no go ahead. Go ahead and tell your side of the story. Yes so I mean I've actually got two different peaks Because I'm interested in both old offers annual And the the new generation are and actually both have to drexel cars that he's bought so that goes twelve years old. My Dad Decides to tell me. Hey we're going up to Wisconsin and we're GONNA TALK HUNDRED DOLLAR. Nineteen Sixty six dodge. Coronet THE ROAD. Kill the road kill influence. We actually did have a pretty big influence. And I can't leave that part out because I started watching roadkill with him and that definitely sparked the interest in him to want to go and fight in this car. So it's kind of whole cycle on. We started with them. And so when up to Wisconsin? We bought this car and drove at six hours home and it was incredible. That was we almost did. Maybe almost didn't make it. We ended up. You ended up getting home all right and we spent six months with that car before we decided to try it out for our newest nineteen seventy-three Dodge coronet which we still have today. But then so that's my interest in Olmo parts. That's how it all started and now since day. I'm actually driving a nineteen seventy seven plymouth. Which we bought on Saint Patrick's Day this year green current Saint Patrick's Day in and right around the same time my dad decides to get a two thousand ten dodge challenger Archie. And I'll be honest at first I was not kind of it. I was Kinda weird new car. He's always had cars around and then we decided to take it out to route. Sixty six raceway out here. Julia took it down the track. And I for some reason to seeing the car out on the track comparing its other cars. My Dad was out there I was like this is so awesome just the track experience everything about it and pretty much that moment on just seeing the cargo down the track during during a testing tune into it was awesome. Was that your first time at the drag strip. No I've been since I was like three dragged him out every summer and spring we would go down there and go to the MCA events and took him to the Shows when he was so young. The only thing you wanted to do is by matchbox cars and free ice cream. I think the influence of seeing enough of it you know. He started to kind of pick up the hobby and took to it. Pretty naturally right on right on well now that we have a little bit of your background. Let let me ask you a couple of questions. We get into your businesses journey. What do you guys think about? The current mopey marketplace as far as where pricing is for not only project mopeds that are classics but also fully restored Mo- parse. How do you feel about that? You know it's interesting Because you know we've done worked for retailers in the automotive market we've kind of followed where the investment Moped level cars have gone since you know after the economy crashed in two thousand nine and it really got inflated right. It was almost frightening to think that if you wanted to go out and get a four forty four a barrel automatic body that you're GONNA be spending at least forty thousand dollars for something so that was crazy but I am happy that the market is recognized that these cars important enough to put the money into them and take care of them because so many of them just got left out in the weeds and crushed and everything else. So it's been interesting to see kind of how that's continued to change over time but what? I found what I found really interesting where you know. The price of the aftermarket is gone. It's actually a lot cheaper now than it was so many years ago to be able to build engines and get parts. There's you know we went to. Sima last Fall and you know you go to the Diamond Piston booth. And there's four different piston types just for the four hundred in a low deck engines. There was stuff we dreamt of twenty five years ago so I think that's great and the new stuff has certainly respond generation in the market You know it's challenging that hell cats. Are you know to get into one now? If you're going to get into a used one you're probably looking at forty forty five thousand but the demons you know. They're still at that inflated price is you know even with all the incentives you're still looking at a seventy thousand dollars. Eighty thousand carbajal are also buying a ten second. Turnkey Quebec killer so I guess that does make sense. But it's it's really exciting time and I think It has never been good to be a mope or guys it is at least in the last couple of years and my personal. I definitely agree. What about you matthew? What do you think about? These prices are the crazy. Or what for me definitely barely for anything that any of these cars I see him? I'll go on facebook marketplace a lot. Just dream you know. Look at Ebadi's I'll look at peabody charters and stuff and I'm just thinking to myself like if it weren't for the fact that he was into the stuff I would just continue to dream and but I think that it's words at is pretty good because if you look at the comparison of other domestic vehicles New prices used prices. They're they're pretty expensive and I mean it's when you're in the restoration market alone. You're looking at expensive prices anyways. When you're going to get into a project you know you're GONNA be spending money but I would definitely say that. For where things are you know. Where the economy is. I think that the prices are very reasonable and and for some cars for some. I feel like you know the demon. The inflation should go down. I'm hoping it goes down as I just I mean. It's an incredible carbon. I just one hundred and thirty nine hundred now. Let me ask you both this. Do you think that 'cause I I've been seeing almost a divide between modern moped enthusiasts and the the old school guys for lack of a better term. Do you think it takes a little bit of fun out of the equation when you go out him by say a demon or even a hell cat or a hell cat red eye because they're already fast out of the box so like you know you dump will say fifty thousand or a hundred thousand plus on a car you know unless your pockets are really deep. I mean how much modification are you really going to do? How much fun are you really going to have aside from just turning the key in going? Do you think that those cars take the fun out of it you know? It's it's a twenty to say that because we've we've really Invested in in both old and new and having a two thousand fourteen thirty eight that ran he got an eleven ninety. Three out of it with soft tires out of the box mods and It was neat. Because you know out of the box you can go that fast but at the same time. There really wasn't a lot that you could touch easily. If you'RE GONNA make one modification you need at least a tune and with a tune in a few modifications if you put the Karni Eleven's then you need to start trason Dr Line making improvements and so it's really never just a bolt on. It's a few thousand bucks so you know I'd say that it's reinvigorated the market but I would agree that there seems to be kind of a divide between the folks that did restoration and were part of this for thirty or forty years and what the new market has done but in some ways it has kind of taken the fun out of. I think you know when when you can get in a red eye in run ten teens or high nines to do that in a body would require a lot more. Yeah so it makes it easier if you are not mechanically inclined and you don't have tools but at the same time it has reset the bar for. What is a fast car? So it's a it's interesting right but they're also forty six hundred pounds. So you know the safety equipment. My concern with a lot of those cars. What happens if you do have something happen at the end? I mean forty six hundred pound car versus twenty. Eight hundred pound. Cars is a lot more inertia

An Interview with Vanderbilt Baseball Coach Tim Corbin

"Want to get right to our first guest who two weeks ago today was it was head coach of the number one baseball team in America. Many expecting hoping perhaps for another a world series run as he has done twice at Vanderbilt But we all know what happened and We're all trying to deal with the circumstances Tim Corbin Jones head baseball coach at Vanderbilt coach. Thank you very much. I know it's been such a difficult time in Nashville couple of weeks ago with tornadoes. Now what we're all dealing with Both nationally and globally. We hope you're well. Yeah Thank Ball Chretien. Let's let's talk about two weeks ago around this time when when you learn what we all learned that For All intents and purposes the baseball season was over. I know there are a lot of important issues to deal with from a health standpoint. But it's certainly had to hurt badly How did you deal with your your your young men. And how are they coping with it? Now I'm sure they're coping with it better. I think like like all athletes and all athletes have been exposed to this at every level whether it's professional or are level or high school of course but that Wednesday night. I think it was the eleventh we. We played Toledo and After game was over I had got word that Corona virus or Vanderbilt University had sent all the the students home so I felt like when I told the kids that I felt like I was going to share more news with them the next day or the next couple of days. And that's what happened on the twelfth The MCA cancelled the baseball season at that point And then on the thirteenth Friday the thirteenth of all things. That's when we had our last meeting and then we'd exit interviews on Saturday and Sunday so I think it's just stunning because of when it happened. You know you're looking at March Thirteenth. And you haven't even started the SEC's we're supposed to on that Friday. And then you're you're basically sending your kids home because they all have to be home so I think I think it hit him hard. I I do think all athletes hard and emotionally at that time but I think during that time too. It's also good to put things in perspective and we tried to As you mentioned we had the tornado just a week. Tried it out and you know a lot of people during the course of that week. We're going to funerals and Picking up pieces and losing homes and so people had more difficult circumstances than than Vanderbilt Baseball and in this case this was a national health crisis so it was bigger than all of us so we basically had to to move forward as much as we possibly could and just kind of weighed on what and how people are going to make decisions going forward and there's a lot of decisions after to be made. Obviously but we're kind of waiting on the country. I just to see where our our health as a as a as a country. Your team had to scatter. Obviously I know you may not even you may not be playing or practicing but these are your players in many ways. Their light children How are you keeping up? Well basically through taxed or we have. This team works out that I can. I can email and text out any information. I want with all of them right now. They're in school or they're not in school but they are. They're home Selling out or completing assignments and just going to school up until the end of April so just basically giving them as much information as I can to share with them but I think the thing that impressed upon him is just stay in routine both mental and physical because we can all humans. Get away from that and right now. I'm sure there's a lot of frustration nationwide Especially when you've been asked to go to your room and you've been grounded and That that's not easy but at the same time we do it for the right reasons but I'm just trying to communicate with the kids as best. I can both the kids that are on our team and the kids. That might have a lot of questions here are sewn is your incoming class because of of what potentially could happen with the NCAA and maybe what potentially could happen with MLB to if they decide or not decide draft. Yeah we're talking A- and right now if things had been normal which is A word that none of us are familiar with this would have been opening day. Baseball Games would have been being played all over the country on television. You know being in in that world one of the one of the truly special days on the calendar and we're all trying to deal with a far more serious things but But it's it's hard to. It is a little bit strange to even for you as a as a baseball fan. Not to catching up with some of the former players on television. Yeah well it it is an you know. I think you and I we. We operate in field of sport not flex and and kids and coaches and so on so it is very important to us. But I you know you can't minimize the strength that it has with your audience and with fans particularly in the FCC but all throughout the country It it gives us Stimulates US it? Takes our mind off from certain things that we go through. During the course of the day ourselves and I think when sport does reenter back into the country I it. It certainly is going to help with the health of everything that's going on. I mean you and I are older so we remember. Nineteen eighty and nineteen. Eighty was a very difficult year for our country. You had He it was tough to get gas or our country was down We had the hostage crisis. And a little you know. Us United States hockey team Of Amateur Kids Not Too long ago. A lot to go on a Friday and then on a Sunday won the gold medal in that occurrence in and of itself was was really stimulator for for our country at the time and it gave us A great rebirth and I. I think when sport does enter the picture again. I think we're GONNA see that I really do. I think it's going to be good for all of us And when that time comes will Will will certainly understand how much we've missed it. Which I think is very powerful feeling to have right now But we'll get there again. We will and I. I think the biggest thing is just to stay as positive as we possibly can during this time coach. You're you're coming off of a title. You're you're hoping to to win another one. I'm interested just from your standpoint. I know you're you're you're there to be a leader for your assistance your staff in your team but you're also a very competitive person very successful person. How are you dealing with this right now? Because everything is different. We understand the importance of what we have to do. But it's still a mental experiences at not. Yes it is But I I think I'm handling it fine. I got away from the emotions of it quick because I think it's one of those things once you start to understand. You can't control any of it then you just remove yourself and really listen and read And I guess listen more than anything to the people that you think have a lot of experience whether it doctors whether it's politicians or or whether it's just our country speaking to us but outside of that then. I think you know last time I was without baseball as a person at any point in time is a competitor was nineteen seventy five. So that's a lot of years of Of Not of having your springs taking up every single day and then of course being a coach. That's thirty five years but I think this this times been. I would say as good as as anything take negative situation. Make it better in terms of being able to reflect. Be Able to thank being able to have probably deeper conversations with my wife that don't have anything to do with baseball but have a lot more to do with life in general and talk more about our girls and talk more about Where we see ourselves so I think this has been good for a lot of people. They might not admit it but I do think it's good because it's Dan allows us to decompress but really allows me to appreciate the fact that I have a job that I am getting paid that. Get to work with young people. They get get interviewed by someone like yourself. I don't take any of that stuff for granted because there is going to be a time where I'm not going to do it and I'm getting the feeling of it right now and I don't want that feeling never again so I think in a lot of ways it's been a very positive situation for me personally What an incredible message and I think a lot of us. Listen to what you said I know self nodding nodding my head in in in total agreement coach. I know we will talk again under better circumstances but until then we you you and your your program the best and And hope to see you

An Interview with Jim Host, Author of 'Changing the Game'

"About to introduce Jim Jim host to the audience who book changing the game. And I don't know if the gym host even remembers but When I was a newspaper reporter I thought of a great idea for a profile of talking about one of the great entrepreneurs in the SEC. Someone who created the Kentucky Broadcast Network and then moved onto the AA. But for whatever reason Jim Oh just did not like Google doing interviews back then and I never even asked him why because it's irrelevant but thank you. Thank you very much Jim for for joining us. And congratulations on the book. Paul thank you very much before we start. I want to say that You meant so much to Mike slide. And he was like a close friend of mine and we had several conversations. But you and job. You did the eulogy at his. Fennel is something. I'll never forget so. I just wanted to make sure that I got that cost. Jim Thank you. Thank you very much For saying that I remember talking to you at the graveside and I know how much you meant to commissioner slot as well well thank you for that and let let me let me start at the beginning for those. Who Don't know your fister who haven't had a chance to read your book you. You're a baseball player. Uk and then you went onto a minor league ball. And I'm sure you've wondered what would have happened. Had you matriculated to the big leagues and had a different career. Well I got one of the first to pull baseball. Scholarships every given at UK. And I'm the first person I've got sixty one first cousins and I'm the first one on either side of my family ever to go to college and I would have never gotten the college that had been for the athletic scholarship at UK and as it was all of that by major radio and television journalism and the rest of its history so there is an example of somebody. You've got a college scholarship who Because he blew his arm out and pro. Baseball couldn't continue on it for baseball. Was able then to build a business based on my college education. I'll be forever grateful to University of Kentucky for allowing me to play there as you moved on from from your baseball career You dabbled in a number of things From the political arena to to business I think all of us would be fascinated by how you ended up moving in into the the genre that now you get so much credit for And been given credit by by leaders in the field as one of the if not. We'll forget one of the innovator when it comes to sports marketing well if I was I got the radio rights by asking the question that final four MC. One goal the final four. This one. That's basketball championship in. Nineteen seventy five in San Diego. I was on the floor Uk It got to the finals. And I was doing the UK broadcast with Kayla Leopard Packer and As a result Bias the question. How much bitch will paying for the radio rights and Tom Johnston? They came with round the foreign. They said three thousand dollars. I said well how much you getting? All the rights for people like me and they said twenty one thousand dollars plus Nice of. I'll tell you what I'll give you thirty thousand dollars. I'll take over the administration and I'll do a whole lot better job and that's how I got started just as asking the question at at that point. Nobody really wanted to radio. And then as I started to try to sell the radio I'm standing in front of of the press table and nineteen seventy seven that the championship in in Atlanta One Alma. Choirs last game and One of one of the members of the committee was complaining about how bad the final four the championship program book. Because those years the program was produced by the arena and I stepped around I said. Would you guys like we do that? And they said well you're doing a great job with radio network out one or two do that That's how I started doing programs and and then I had one problem. I really couldn't sell it very well. Because I had no national distribution as it related to sales people so I have spent time with proctor and gamble and learned that that They they had a Cava issue having to do with how they got their packages sold at supermarkets. I'm sorry I came up with a scroll down which turned out to be pretty good about. Why don't we see if we can't Put a MCA championship on So Fox's and on bar soaps and so on and see if we can't create some revenue and that basis and I went to wall virus and made the suggestion. It took them two years to agree that it might make some sense and that's kind of how it started and I love the chapter in the book. When when you're dealing with Walter Byers who was a legendary figure but based on I never met him but based on what I've read he wasn't always the easiest person to make a point across to Paul He. I've been in the Oval Office of every presence that's Nixon. A Nineteen Sixty. I live never been at all of anybody in my life other than Walter. Byers he was the smartest single individual I was ever around He would meet with you one on one he knew more about Your Business and then you did. He had his homework done. He never had a piece of paper in front of them and He and I learned a great deal problem. So that's my analysis of you did so many other things and I know I don't WanNa diminish the body of work but when I read about your involvement in the building of Arena definitely got my attention because it's a building that's been there more than forty years. It's still one of the Meccas of college basketball. How how did how did that? Come about well One of my first the first of all I ran for governor state and got my buddy thank God and And I was going to do it the right way so I wouldn't take any campaign. Contributions I spent all the money I made in the sixties and the real estate and insurance business and Came out of the campaign. Had One hundred seven dollars in my pocket. Looks Seventy six thousand eight hundred eighty seven dollars the campaign? That didn't happen. The income could put my real estate and insurance businesses back together so The mayor and the county judge came to they said We'd like you to be the first executive director the lesson I eventually commission and I said how much does it pay? They said eighteen thousand dollars a year. And I said I'll tell you what you can hire them a company I get to do other things and And the first meeting we add. They said we're gonNA tell you why we are hired you there's a There's a good much tracks through downtown. We've taken they've been taken offline urban renewal and we've got in-kind contribution of twenty percent that if we don't build a civic center on the west end of Bovine Street We've got to pay three million dollars back in the city that have that kind of money so you got to build civic center in the arena. So that's how that got started I wanted stop for just a second and talk about How you've done And maybe some some basic tennis. We talked to a young person our staff who who talked about growing when he went to University of Georgia recently. Everyone wants to go into sports. Marketing. And and that's not really what I want to ask you about to Jim because you wrote in the book about some very basic tenants Simple things that we probably should learn at an early age that that you had certain I would say rules for yourself and for your employees that were as simple as this kind of things we heard as a kid but I wish he would explain and share those with all of us to rules of business one is you do not misrepresent. Lie about anything if you do. You're fired and number two. You do not Take five cents from the expense account. If you do your part everybody that came into business. Understood it and violated. I immediately called him in and fired him They didn't get a second chance. If somebody had a drug problem and I'll call problem. I gave a second chance. I paid for the Rehabilitation GonNa back and in the second chance of the violate that that they were those who are rules and business. I also said that In any guy. I never got sued by any school by any conference by the. Mcaa TAB for one. Reason is that I believe that it's either black or white if it's black that's in their favor of its whites in my favorite. It's great and their favorite and that was on the way. That's the way a random business before you go and I would strongly encourage any any young person who's thinking about getting into this business to read gyms book but but I I would like to ask you about some of the big issues that we're facing today certainly They are countless. But but the one that's front and center is the the name image likeness Situation I know having been an athlete having been involved in sports marketing and the industry at the front a at the front row for so long. What are your thoughts on today? And where we go from here in intercollegiate athletics. I wrote my epilogue at the end of the book that I fully believe that time has come when student athletes need to be compensated for the likeness and people think that this has to do with Just basketball football. It doesn't They've we've we've had some unbelievable track athletes at UK One of whom has gone under set world records Young Woman has gone on set world records. We take great tennis players here We've had other individuals who have done well and they would. They would benefit from this as well. So Mike my contention is that they need to be compensated It needs to be done. Under the under the scope of the university because it media right holder at this point as revenue coming from corporate sponsors. So the way to do it. I believe is to Get The individual Have the university Media Group represents individual have the flow through them have the bunny then put into a separate account and they once the individual graduates or leaves the university the individual gets the money Jim Hosts the name of the book changing the Game Career in collegiate sports marketing.

"US Senate is overwhelmingly approved an updated trade deal with Mexico and Canada NPR Scott Horsley reports the vote follows passage in the house last month the vote in the Senate was just as lopsided as last month's house tally centers voted eighty nine to ten in favor of the trade deal which the administration calls the U. S. MCA the agreement updates nafta to cover things like digital commerce which barely existed when that deal was signed a quarter century ago the biggest change made by the US MCA is in the auto industry car makers will have to include more north American parts if they want to sell cars and trucks here without paying a terrace the agreement also sets a minimum pay scale for auto plants which could result in some production moving from Mexico to the United States before the house vote last month Democrats insisted on some changes to the deal those include stronger labor and environmental

Senate Is Expected To Pass USMCA With Bipartisan Support

"Right now is the impeachment. Trial moves forward in the Senate. They're also some big developments on the trade front the US Mexico candidate agreement or the US as it's known is on its way to becoming law. Aw the Senate is expected to pass. North American trade pact. Today with bipartisan support. Sending it to President Trump's desk this comes just a day after phase one trade agreement between the United it states and China was signed at the White House I want to start with NPR chief. Economics correspondent Scott horsely. Scott Good Morning David. Do you mind if you can't just giving us a sense of what is in this. The new agreement that it's being dubbed his Nafta two point. Oh yeah some ca updates the original Nafta to cover things like digital commerce that barely existed existed. When the deal was I signed a quarter century ago at the insistence of House Democrats It also includes stronger protections for Labor and the environment especially in Mexico. Texaco the biggest change to Nafta though is in the automobile sector where this deal requires cars and trucks to include more North American content in order to qualify for duty duty free status and it also says a wage standard that could result in some auto production shifting from Mexico back to the United States. Let's stick with us if you don't mind I I want to bring in another voice here. It's Neil Bradley To talk about the impact this could have on the US economy. He's executive vice president and Chief Policy Officer at the US Chamber of Commerce. Thanks thanks for being here this morning. Thanks for having me David. Does the Chamber think this is a good deal for American businesses. It is for reasons that Scott outlined it makes significant improvements on on things like digital trade that didn't exist before for the first time ever as a chapter on small businesses. There's one hundred twenty thousand small businesses in America who send goods services to Canada and Mexico. So this is good for them. Most importantly however there are twelve million American jobs that are in part supported by trade between Dr Three countries. In getting this deal done passing through the Senate today getting it signed by the president provides certainty for those twelve million Americans. Is there anything that businesses businesses might lose with the end of Nafta since this is now going to be replacing that that agreement. I don't know that there's so much we lose. There are some changes. Ah You know. No deal is perfect. This isn't the deal that the US chamber would have written but on balance. It's one that enjoys bipartisan support. And perhaps that's the most important aspect about it. We've had political conflict between the two parties between business and labor over NAFTA since the ink was dry back in the early nineteen nineties this removes that uncertainty Labor Business Democrats Republicans were all bought in support of this new agreement. And that's something that we you don't see very often in Washington anymore and that's something that our economy and American workers deserve to have. which is that bipartisan? Buy In in Washington. I speaking of uncertainty. I WanNa ask you about this new phase one trade agreement with China We've been hearing already. Some doubts about whether China is actually going to buy these billions and billions of dollars more in American goods as they've committed The government is is leaving some doubts about that. Are you confident if they don't follow through on that. Could that hurt American American businesses in terms of what they were expecting here. We'll certainly and it's important that everyone live up to their commitments and especially important that the Chinese live up to their commitments in this phase. One deal Equally fact even more important than the purchases and that's good for American farmers and manufacturers is resolving some of our long standing trade trade tensions with China intellectual property theft forced technology transfers state subsidies that make the disadvantage American businesses. This this phase one deal begins to tackle some of those problems not all of them. That's why we need to phase two deal so it's especially important that in this time the Chinese to all all of their commitments that they've made as part of the steel just stepping back over the last few years of trade policy under the trump administration. All that's come with it. Scrapping deals igniting trade disputes drawn out renegotiations. On the whole. Do you think these new deals are worth the pain. That businesses manufacturers farmers workers have have felt. I so you have to look at each one individually. The President deserves credit for tackling longstanding. Problems with China You people can disagree with the tactics that got us to this point but it is really important that we finally address this these problems with neo the the world's number two largest economy You know I I think NAFTA USMC as a little bit different I think we could have gotten to where we've gotten today. Maybe without a little bit of the turmoil We'd like to see less last turmoil lessons. Certainly in our trading relationships with Europe but part of that's on both sides of the Atlantic the the Europeans are doing some things that are currently disadvantage in American businesses. Neil Bradley is Executive Vice President Chief Policy Officer at the US Chamber of Commerce. Thanks so much for your time. Thanks for having me and I want to bring back. NPR's Scott horsely Scott Sounds pretty optimistic. There the view from the chamber does that reflect. What you're hearing I mean is is optimism widespread among American businesses and elsewhere? You Know David the. US MCA THE AS GONNA make some modest changes to NAFTA and so it's expected to give a modest boost the US economy by Mo main most forecast is supposed to up GDP by maybe one third of one percent but the biggest sigh of relief. You're hearing is that. The president didn't scrap NAFTA with nothing to replace it as he had threatened to do. And that's the certainty that Mr Bradley's talking about likewise The phase one China deal would avoid some of the disruption to transpacific trade that the the trade war has brought but it still leaves steep tariffs in place on about two thirds of the stuff we buy from China. Historically free trade deals have been about lowering trade barriers in the trump era. There's also a pretty good dose of Protectionism N._p._R.. Scott horsely Scott. Thanks so much you welcome

The GOP tax cuts, two years on

"So look. Here is my working hypothesis. This is pretty much the last day before a month or so of people being away for a couple of weeks and then coming back to a couple of weeks worth of political story that is with reason going to suck all the air out of the room. So Oh let's do this. An economic level set of sorts before the news gets subsumed Catherine repels Washington Po. She is all alone today in our New York Bureau. You're a Catholic. Just the two of us all right so look. Let's do. Let's do this first of all. I want to talk trade now that we have a deal on the US MCA and and we are told a deal with China that we haven't seen yet but we're told it to deal Can we say we have a trade peace. In our time I would say tensions have eased certainly and whatever anxiety there might have been in in markets amongst retailers dealers and manufacturers and others that things would escalate that has abated. But even so what we know about the China trade deal is not that we we are rolling back all of the tariffs so that we would have the same kind of landscape we had before trump took office we were only rolling back some of the tariffs for whatever the steel well is phase. One deal that. Is that materializes so whether you would call this a piece or a detente. I don't know it's kind of like two steps backward one step forward word but but certainly You know there's some relief out there that things didn't get worse okay Let's do a another little. Look becky thing and that is this a year ago. Talk of recession was very high. Stock Market was jittery. People were nervous. What a difference a day makes an off a year makes rather in all fairness rush? Yeah it looks like a lot of the concerns about the future of the economy and the imminent possibly imminent downturn were overblown The yield curve has uninvited and the recovery has continued. Its now more than a decade long which makes it the longest recovery on record and look unemployment is still falling or is or is it least not rising so all of that is good whether or not You know we can expect us. Indefinitely definitely is a is a separate question business cycles or called cycles for a reason but at least in the near term it does look like concerns were overblown. Okay About the future. Then and what we were promised as you point out in a column in the Post today And you know the calendar says this is the two year anniversary of This week I guess. Sunday is the anniversary of the GOP's tax cuts and it's not a restricting the case to say that that what was was promised by the President and Republicans in Congress was not delivered. Yeah on a number of metrics in fact this toddler this two year old all tax cut is sort of behind on its developmental milestones right. We were told that the tax cuts would pay for themselves. In fact that has not been the case defecates deficits have continued to expand both because of greater spending and because tax revenues are not rising as much as you would expect during a reception year recovery because the tax cuts We we also have not seen supercharged. GDP growth trump as. You may recall. Said we should expect something like six percent growth instead. We're getting about two percent which is about what we had had before trump took office investment actually fell the last couple of quarters. I wouldn't necessarily blame that on the tax cuts but it does suggest that they were not They they did not give it a sufficient to overcome whatever trade war Concerns there had been and wage gains have also been kind of disappointing. We did not see the promised. Major wage gains that the tax cuts were supposed to deliver year over year and inflation inflation adjusted terms. They're about at the same today as they were before. Trump took office so on a lot of key metrics The tax cuts are not quite delivering. Now and I'm sure the proponents will say give it more time Right give more time but so far the metrics. Don't don't look so great okay. Ah I WANNA go sideways into the politics of this past week for just a second And I wanted. Let's completely set aside the stock market. About which the president was jubilant again today more record highs but I I want to ask you why things like consumer confidence and retail spending and all those sort of gut level metrics of this. Connie don't seem to be being affected by the the Hullaballoo in Washington. Well it's not not clear that they were during previous Hullaballoo either right The economy was pre determined. The the economy remained pretty. We strong during Clinton's impeachment and in fact. GDP growth was better. It didn't seem like impeachment affected the economy or I don't think markets substantially substantially one way or the other they seem relatively divorced from what another which may be is just a reflection of the fact that presidents don't control the economy they don't control stock markets? They get a Lotta they get too much credit too much blame when things are good or bad respectively And we like to think that policymakers I are are pulling all the levers but really they can only kind of affecting us on the margins even when we're talking about something major as potentially removing

"Malik is with the New York. Times McCain's is at the economist. Everybody let me to start with you. you're in the press conference with Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer today win. This deal was announced. We have Agriculture purchases a bunch of other. Other stuff we are rolling back. Some tariffs This is a real deal. Yes yes it is a real deal. I saw the deal. He Sort but of teased us by opening a folder whether these eighty-six pages worth of deal and then he closed folder again and said I'm going to show it to you now. So we're we're we're sure that they were real eighty six pages I well. I trust that his count was right. I didn't physically count them out. Let me ask you this this man and I'll stay with you for just a second As I said tag purchases were rolling back from tariffs. Isn't this sort of where we were. When this trade war started in the middle of two thousand eighteen yeah so so? I think there are a few different pasta. The deal right one of them is definitely this act purchases piece this these purchases that the Chinese are going to make and that is I think about out repairing some of the damage that the trade was done. But you can't fill eighty six pages with that there. There is some other structural stuff Apparently the Chinese have made commitments on intellectual. Property are some sort of regulate tree Arias dealing with a promise not to do some sort of technology. Transfer trump's third as an enforcement mechanism. There are real. There's real stuff there we obviously would like to read the text But I'm not ready to dismiss this as just returning to the status quo yet yet. Okay Fair enough and it has been promised probably in a couple of weeks we will see this text but genus. Mike let me ask you this. And and we'll we'll get more defend in a second but it is worth mentioning engineer that The president's chief economic adviser Larry Cudlow also said on. CNBC today that this will bring business stability and business confidence. That is something that Jay Powell and the Fed have been saving the economy from the president's economic policies for the past year. And a half right. So do you buy things are going to be different now. You know I think I think that's a two part answer so I think on one hand it you know. This is absolutely something the business community has been asking for and even sometimes begging for is a little bit more certainty around these rules so I think this is. This is good news it also comes at a convenient moment because the Fed has just kind of promised that it is going to take a step back and stop stop providing that kind of you know sort of constant support and helping hand and so I feel like this kind of is falling into place Could be good news for the economy. So many let me ask you this About this deal what I don't I truly don't want to be pessimistic here right because this deal is important if it's real and will bring upside benefit what happens and if somehow this thing falls apart in the next phase of negotiations which is also what Larry cudlow was promised that we're moving right to face to yeah I I think to be honest. It's it's wise is to be skeptical at this point And I think you know invested let has even said something to that effect When we were there at the White House the thing to watch out for is this enforcement mechanism there is going to be a process by which the the US and China will decide whether the living up to the deal right and if America decides actually China's China's not then there will be a process to put the tires back up again So they've they've written in a way to this to break down The other thing we know is that the the success of the next phase of negotiations is going to depend on how well this first phase goes so if there were suspicions than don't don't expect to see many more deals But yeah you know we don't we don't know it is but it is wise to be to be skeptical that everything is going to be hugged from now on I will not know how All right gina listener to the Fed. Here two two day meeting on interest rates Nothing changed and there seems to be a consensus that that perhaps the Federal Reserve is done for a while. And more to the point as I talked with your colleague from the Times Neil earned went about This week that that maybe the Fed now is acknowledging that somehow it it didn't necessarily have everything right the past couple of years right absolutely so I think one of the one of the things. They came out of this week's Fed conference. This is the number of times. Jay Powell either said or alluded to the fact that the United States is not at full employment which is kind of crazy because since roughly awfully twenty fifteen late two thousand fifteen early twenty sixteen which you obviously know. You know we've been telling everybody they've been telling everybody you know we're at or near full employment to the point that it kind of just became a trope. They said it all the time and so now I think the Fed is taking a step back and saying you know in the end they have been for to be fair for the past probably nine to twelve months they have been kind kind of headed in this general direction. But they're taking step back and kind of saying you know we are. We have a very strong labor market in some places. It's very tight but we are not not sure what full employment means in two thousand nineteen in a world where we don't see crazy wage pressures and we definitely don't see crazy. Inflation futures prices are still well below their target. You're more efficient coming up but a second. Let me ask you this and and I I know there was talk about this at the press conference I frankly forget. Are they basically done with rates. Do you think for twenty twenty absent Data that changes their minds. I think yeah absolutely and it sounds like. They're even a little bit skeptical that they know what's going to happen in two thousand twenty one so the committee has pencilled in the next move to be the at one hike in two thousand twenty one but we asked chair pal about that and he kind of said. Hey you know that's a long time from now and it's going to happen between now and then Judas all right Trade for the last questions. McCain's over to you. I don't WanNa give Short Shrift to the US MCA which W- the deal the agreement with the White House and and House Democrats was announced. Marginal gain big deal. Discuss okay so again. This is one where we might have to so I think one of the the big things that that that people on the left looking out for was whether it's labor rules would be properly enforceable and so I've been digging into the detail of this it does look like they secured some meaningful meaningful changes but all of the action here is in the in the implementation. Right it's one of those things where you really just don't know until you start to use it. and that's the common thread for both of these agreements right. I mean just in ten seconds. That's the short answer. We gotta wait and see. Yep and that's a boring slow on seventy one somme McCain's at the economist. Gina Smile at the New York Times. Thanks you too.

A Week of Wins and Losses for President Trump

"China to to agree to a trade deal has been a major focus for the trump administration and it was just one of a couple of big wins for the White House this week there was also democratic support for the US MCA a trade. Deal and bipartisan agreement. On spending bill but those big wins all came as house. Democrats moved forward with articles of impeachment against President Trump. Joining us now to talk about this roller coaster week in Washington is Wall Street Journal White House reporter Catherine Lucy so a lot of news this week Catherine. Let's start with impeachment. The the House Judiciary Committee advanced two articles of impeachment against the president. Today that now goes to the full house but even if it passes there both parties say it's unlikely to advance in the Senate where Republicans have the majority so for telling wins and losses for the week cure who comes out ahead. Well as with many things in trump's Washington in town which is as we know very politically divided. This is a mixed result certainly impeachment which we believe will come next week in the house. This is a serious this is a serious rebuke of the president. This is only happened a handful of times before in history only a few presidents have ever been impeached speech by the House. So this is a serious. It'd be a review on his presidency on his record this historic implications. That said he said he is not expected to these expected to be acquitted in the Senate and so moving forward. He is not expected to leave office. And there are. There are pros and cons to this. For both sides. A House members felt a democratic house. Members felt they had to move forward. This that this was needs charged. Were serious that they had to do this. And they certainly were hearing from supporters in parts of the country that this was important. They really cast this as I said of a moral choice that this is something that they've had to do that. This is this is their responsibility. As elected officials on the president's side he has consistently he and his allies have consistently rejected rejected the impeachment process entirely have casted as a witch hunt. They have cast it as a sham and we have seen that among his supporters. I You know that this has been an effective strategy that His campaign says that fundraising has picked up your interest volunteering attendance and his rallies that his base base has really been invigorated by what they see as a partisan effort. Let's turn to trade a lot of news on that front this week earlier we ahead and agreement Democrat signing onto the US MCA deal. which is the rewrite of Nafta between Canada Mexico and the US and today we got news that the US and China have finally sealed a phase one agreement on their trade dispute so progress on both sides? Sounds like a win for president trump. Who has vowed to renegotiate negotiate? US trade agreements with other nations. Absolutely president trump ran on renegotiating NAFTA he ran on taking a new approach to the China. China these are campaign promises that he very badly wanted to show progress on before twenty twenty when we know he'll be seeking reelection. And so yes. These are absolutely important wins for him going into the New Year. But I would also say that you know a lot of Democrats also wanted to reach a agreement on The US MCA and this was a lengthy negotiation. Concessions made on both sides to get there and that one of the calculations on behalf of democratic leadership herships was that while impeachment is underway. It was important for them to show that they were continuing to do their legislative work and that for members particularly securely those representing swing districts Democrats who had You know flipped districts at a previous even help Republicans in two thousand eighteen was very important for them to be able to go back to their districts over the holiday break and be able to show that they were continuing to work on. This is one issue that in a lot of those areas is very important RENEGOTIATING NAFTA was seen as a key priority in manufacturing and agricultural sectors sectors. So that that that has benefits on both sides rides. We also had a bipartisan. Deal on spending this week kind of snuck in there between all the trade and impeachment news. Current funding is set to expire on December number twentieth But if we think back not too long ago we had a government shutdown over funding particularly over funding for the border wall in twenty eighteen. So it seems like any deal before for the the looming deadline is a win. This this sounds like it came through rather quickly compared to that one. Yeah I think that you can cast as a win for all know. Both sides were Refaeli. Open all along that no one really wanted to repeat the shutdown of last year which obviously started before Christmas snuck into the next year was not seen seen as politically advantageous for the president and so there was a lot of effort both from the White House from lawmakers to try and get to a AH agreement that everyone could live with and I think there wasn't a lot of interest in in stretching this into the holidays.

"Twenty-six words section of a law from the nineteen ninety s has been getting a lot of attention. It's section two thirty of the Communications Decency Act it says that tech platforms can't be held liable for most things their users post on those platforms section to thirty has been under attack recently from politicians and others who say it gives companies too much protection in this age of harassment radicalization and misinformation. But even as that debate is happening. The law is being exported so to speak language similar to section two thirty is part of US trade agreements with Japan and then made the cut in the recently agreed upon deal with Mexico and Canada. So let's talk about what that means in quality assurance the Friday segment where we take a deeper look at big tech story. Margaret Harding McGill is a tech policy reporter for axios well that benefits the tech companies of course because they get to extend these protections to other countries so so they feel that they will be protected in other countries from being sued for hosting speech from the Trade Representative's perspective they see their job is extending extending. US laws globally. So they want to make sure that American policy is extended to different countries. Got It so then. How big a deal is it for the tech companies? I well I think it's a win win for the tech industry on two different fronts. One they do get to extend these protections so that helps them in other countries for sure but also enshrining them in these international channel agreements. Make it more difficult for Congress to change the law domestically which has been a conversation. That's been going on for the last couple of years. Got It all right. So who is unhappy about this. We had heard that house speaker. Nancy Pelosi had tried to get this language. Kept out of this trade agreement who who loses here. Yes this is over situation where you have have a Republican Senator Ted Cruz publicly agreeing with house speaker. Nancy Pelosi on this issue. You've had lawmakers on both sides of the aisle saying hey section to thirty like language language should not be in trade deals. This is not the place for it so a lot of lawmakers are unhappy that this is being included in trade deals but it was not enough of a sticking point to stop the agreement altogether and then there have been different groups and companies that have also opposed Including it in trade deal so there was a labor union that wrote a letter to Speaker Pelosi on they represent a bunch of different workers including hotel worker saying it wasn't right to include IBM and some content companies in the movie and Music Industry have also kind kind of more. Broadly raised concerns about including two thirty like language in trade deals but opponents in the business world definitely wanted to see. US MCA pass more than they WANNA to to get this taken out. Yeah I wonder what that suggests for the future of section two thirty in the US because there has been this kind of conversation and you have actually seen. Republicans can saying that section two thirty should be weakened or stripped because of a perceived bias at tech companies against conservative speech. All of these different reasons. And but you know we know that Congress sometimes talks a lot and doesn't act and I wonder if this is almost a signal that two-thirty might not actually be in that much trouble. I think you could definitely Read it that way I mean lawmakers have said the US should not be enshrining and exporting the protections trade deals at the same time that they are actively considering changes changes. But there hasn't been a big serious push to make a change onto thirty this year. There have been some ideas on opioids on their some related to WHO Short term rentals. So it's kind of around the edges but not a big. We need to update this long. Here's how we're going to do it yet. But then again congress did pass a carve out last last year that makes it easier to platforms for hosting sex trafficking content so it's not completely unheard of for lawmakers to make changes to this law and then there has been this conversation especially around digital taxation about you know should there be some sort of global standards of Internet law and I wonder how much each of a precedent does this actually set yeah. I think that we're seeing a lot of different entities. Try and set the rules of the road for the Internet and for tech companies. You have the European Union Nyan working to cut of aggressively regulate US companies whereas China has its own vision for what the Internet should be like and also imposes. Its own rules on Internet companies that try and do business there so I think he wants to view this through is that this is the US. And the American tech industry trying to assert an American vision in American laws around the world and try and tip the scales in the US favor when it comes to global policy.

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

"Mexico reform indoor market economy it enabled American businesses workers farmers and ranchers to sell our goods and services in Mexico and Canada without terrorists and without many non terror is that for decades had burden our ability to compete in those two countries of course the US economy in the global trade have changed dramatically since nineteen ninety three and twenty five years of experience with nafta have provided valuable lessons the time for modernizing after and has come and that's what USMC is all about it sets a new standard for trade agreements for example once enacted the agreement will make it will be the first US free trade agreement with robust chapters dedicated to judge digital trade anti corruption good regulatory practices and small and medium size enterprises US MCA will set a new benchmark in many other areas as well such as free transfer of data across borders strong rules on state owned enterprises north American content requirements for preferential treatment food safety and biotechnology standards customs and trade facilitation intellectual property rights protection and enforcement labor and environment USMC a labor chapters squarely addresses workers rights in Mexico and it already has resulted in the overhaul of Max Mexico's labor laws the labor and environmental standards in the agreement are the most rigorous in any U. S. trade deal and I'm like with nafta they're in the core of the agreement and are fully enforceable USMC A. also squarely addresses long standing US concerns in the Canadian market such as Canadian policies on week Grady retail sale of wine dairy supply management and the distribution of U. S. television program these are substantial improvements from after they represent benefits and new opportunities for islands and for Americans across the board according to the international trade commission the agreement will increase real GDP by sixty eight billion dollars and a hundred and seventy six thousand new American jobs now that's not to say that every U. S. M. C. a provision is perfect a degree must always need to balance the preferences of different industries regions elected leaders and stakeholders some of my democratic colleagues in the house house representatives of center their attention on U. S. M. C. A. outcomes that they view imperfect surely nobody could consider nafta to be better than US MCA and nobody let me emphasize nobody should dismiss the importance of a half trillion dollar market for US agriculture products I came away from a meeting that I had was speaker Pelosi that was very positive as I herder words in and express our gratitude ward's US MCA people wanna portion Porsche but I think we must be patient as she works through this and I am confident she wants to get to yes I have supported the the size I have also supported the ongoing work of the the speakers members with ambassador light how user to clarify outstanding concerns and identify bipartisan solutions I have an open mind to workable ideas and stand ready to consider possible improvements in the agreement for example I support strong enforcement of all of the chapters through a system that works reliably and has credibility with our trading partners I'm also pleased that important U. S. M. C. A. provisions on prescription drugs will not require any changes to U. S. law and I would be open to proposals that would confirm that point at the same time every day that passes is another day that benefits good U. S. M. C. A. go on realize trying to re open the whole agreement could respond raveling the deal altogether which would benefit nobody I therefore urge the house of representatives and ambassador white Heiser to focus on their specific concerns and to propose solutions in short order so that we can pass you SMCA doing soul will provide much needed certainly to American workers businesses farmers ranchers families and will Hanson credibility of our ambitious global trade center white thank you very much on the center Ron Wyden is the ranking Democrat on the finance committee Chuck Grassley Republican is the chair at the outset that I look forward very much to working closely with you on all of these issues calling for the finance committee meets this morning to discuss what needs to happen for now the two point oh to deliver better results for American workers are farmers are reinsurers and particularly American families from sea to shining sea I do wanna begin my remarks by giving a big Oregon shout out to one of our witnesses ms Paul Burnett not only because she is an Oregonian but as an entrepreneur ms Barnett is a perfect example of why the original nafta needs a bold upgrade Barnett is an artisan from Brownsville Oregon in in that area often for town hall meetings and Linn county the population is about eighteen hundred people and rounds he found the jewelry business that produces in Oregon and sells online primarily on Etsy to customers in the United States and around the world she also sources some of what goes into her jewelry from abroad getting that kind of business off the ground would have been a lot harder just a few short decades ago when nafta was created according to FC the total economic output of the sellers based in Oregon is more than a hundred and twenty five million dollars and that is just one of the many online platforms that businesses use to grow Oregon's many success stories also include rough where babies in bend a producer of gear for very good dogs all over the United States and other countries updating nafta means addressing the challenges facing these businesses that operate on line it also means confronting the other areas were older trade agreements continue to this day to fall short fighting to protect labor rights and the interests of working families preventing a race to the bottom when it comes to the environment making sure there is vigorous enforcement of our trade agreements so that other countries cannot treat those deals it's empty documents that give them time and opportunities to rip off American jobs and I want to particularly emphasize this trade enforcement issue my colleague center can't well and I come from the Pacific Northwest incredibly trade sensitive one out of five jobs in the state of Oregon revolves around international trade the trade jobs pay better than the non trade jobs in many cases because there is a value added compliment and in my home state one of the first things anybody asks about when the trade topic is brought up is Hey Ron what do you guys in Washington DC doing to better enforce the trade laws that are on the books I understand you need to upgrade these policies but they want to make clear that the new day has to involve tough enforceable trade laws that have real peace in the U. ministrations release it's now up to two point oh agreement and consulting with the Congress and what comes next as I wrap up here pretty quickly I want to make some points on that process there is important work left to be done on key issues I mentioned in enforcement because the new nafta carries over the weekend Forsman system of the old now it's too easy on trade cheats it's not good enough for American workers particularly on labor rights center brown and I have proposed some additional tools to address specific challenges in Mexico and I hope that there will be progress on that front additionally one of the bigger challenges we confront is identifying the hundreds of thousands of sham labor contracts in Mexico that have exploited workers nearing harmed workers here Mexico must remain on track to get those contracts we negotiate on behalf of the workers interest during the overhaul the original nafta remains in place workers farmers ranchers and businesses shouldn't have to fear that economic uncertainty will cost them their livelihoods it's a problem when the president Accel makes impulsive threats regarding our trade relationships American farmers American workers have been hurt by some of these presidential impulses and more will get hurt if the president continues to offer threats and chaos and possibly this ends up causing the Congress to accept the bad deal on nafta passing a trade deal that would allow this president to unilaterally change rules and ineffective jerked around the entire industries would be a dangerous in a state that promotes uncertainty when I talk to businesses more than anything they constantly come back to certainty and predictability and you don't get trade done right with all this uncertainty and based on that I have some real concerns about how the administration wants nafta to point out to be implemented that's what we're gonna be talking about that today and my colleagues care deeply on both sides of the aisle about trade and I'd like to close this comment where I began is burned out

Thanks for joining us for having a couple of things we could certainly talk about. And one of those top of buying this point with the g twenty and talks about US China and trade. That's not just one. I mean that's just one of the many trade discussions, but certainly came for agriculture and for your district as well. Yeah. Probably after talking about the, the flooding and the terribly wet condition that are our growers, and producers are facing all over the state of Illinois, and especially in my part of the state in the northwestern region. It is a trade is the next thing that comes up, and obviously, a lot of interest on the US MCA, which is, you know, that NAFTA to point out, whatever you wanna call it and the interest in having a sense, say about that. But the other thing is the fact that we are literally in the middle of a trade war with our biggest agricultural trading partners, and it a it is a big concern, not just at the present time. But what it can do long-term as far as China finding trading partners with Brazil Argentina, and I mean, I have deep concern about what's going to happen, and literally. Lost. We start our day out in Washington, d I talk to you from Washington right now, with we don't know what tweets going to start the morning, we don't know if it's going to involve trade, we don't know what it's going to, you know what's going to happen. And the bad thing is, you've got our family farmers who are facing thirty per month. Day in and day out with what, what going to come out of fixing hundred Pennsylvania Avenue. China is, is one and the China day agreement with China is one and then US MCA is another. And there's been some back and forth about that sort of thing. Even Senator Grassley said, you know, it's feels like it's, it's not being delayed -sarily has been talking about that, hopefully that can get through the house, though, to get things ratified in a timely manner. Have you have you been able beating conversations with that necessarily, well, there are still parts of this? US trade agreement that have to be worked out before this up for about two things in particular, one involves the price of prescription drugs right now as part of US MCA, there, the link, thinning of the patent agreement for pharmaceutical companies, which would actually delay the time that generic drugs can be brought to the market, and that's would increase prices that families pay for the prescription..

No, I think we've been I don't wanna say misled we haven't had some of the opportunities afforded that we should have best. I think. Guardedly optimistic that the new drape package will be much improved, and it'd be benefit to this country and not just were trading partners. I think in the past, we've bent over backwards for some of our trading partners. It's hurt US economy. It's review as farmers. The US to labor is just been the. Kind of one side, and I say that because as I say, some of my opportunity to travel with need export federation relatively corn in the past some foreign countries. They have a real demand. But it was pretty much one sided trade back. You know if we're paying thirty percent they're they're being five percent in the past. We were getting handed to us over time.

I like your positive thinking, but if the if is really subject to the Democrats, let's what happens. But I really believe that Nancy Pelosi and to house, the Senate will prove it rapidly. It's going to be very bipartisan. It's great for the farmers manufacturers. But Democrats claimed in two hearings last week, they weren't ready that the deal needs tougher labor, and environmental enforcement guarantees something trade embassador, Robert lighthizer vowed to work on with Democrats.

"Members of the house recognize that for those of us who really want to support the US MCA, this issue of enforcement is a major issue that needs to be dealt with as we move forward on this process. Well, thank you. First of I Fisher cosmopolitan I completely agree with, with this point. They we have to make an effort on capacity building, in with respect to Mexico Canada is also I should say, has announced that they're going to do capacity building there. What I think that Mexico does not get enough credit for what they actually did. There's very few examples in history of the country, doing what they did the kind of labor reform. It's really quite amazing. When you look at it and example of, which is that they've agreed to have secret ballot votes on their collective variety remains of which they have seven hundred thousand and that's now been time to do that. But that's an amazing commitment by Mexico, and it's something that, that we all have a stake in all of us in that seeing number one, we will have enforceable provisions and make sure they do it. And that's what members want and we'll work on placing those up and number two. I think you're completely, right? We have to have provisions in here where where where we. Build. We helped him build their capacity to do it. I certainly have no interest. I know the president doesn't have doing this entering it as agreement which we considered to be historic, and having inches, Peter out in non enforcement in years in the future years when when we're not here anymore. So I, I completely agree with that. I do it as part of our legacy to actually be in a position that this will go on automatic as enforcement having said that enforcement. It's I've said before enforcement is about people, right? You had a bad cop on your street, your laws, not going to be enforced. So, but I certainly recognize that this is the most recent trade agreement will enter into it will be used as the model for the next. So therefore, the fact that we had the governance provisions in this agreement will help us, whether it's Japan or e you or, or Vietnam that we need to make sure we also have the provision in regards to enforcement and capacity to enforce as we look at the next country that we've been looking at for an FDA Mallon. Democratic Senator Ben Cardin, this is she spayed radio programming from Tuesday, WCS from Washington. Menendez. Thanks chairman. I just want to echo the comments of the ranking member on the US MCA. We need to have stronger enforcement across the board, particularly on labor and the environment. And I hope we can get there at the end of the day to this members support, but I'd like to move to another question at the beginning of the month. The Americans watched as the president fabricated, a diplomatic standoff with Mexico and then reach an agreement that is a slightly modified version of the status quo. If this is the best win the president can get then he's right about one thing I'm tired about untied of winning for an entire week. We had the president throw a high stakes a temper tantrum Potenza thousands of jobs at risk by threatening tariffs that would raise costs for American consumers and businesses. And I think invested in you, and I both know that tariffs are just a tool, they can be the right cool in some cases, but they definitely can be the wrong one in many cases. And in my mind. Imposing tariffs on Mexico because the president felt they weren't doing on immigration was clearly would be wrong. So I'm trying to understand where we draw the line do you believe it was appropriate for the president to threaten tariffs on Americans, because he doesn't believe Mexico was doing enough on immigration. Microphone. I'm sorry. Absolutely absolutely. As you know, this is not my area. I don't get into immigration. That's another department for you. Do deal with. No. But I do I do in some cases. I, I deal the tariffs. But I think from the president's point of view he had a crisis. It was a crisis. It was building at a very fast pace something had to be done. Mexico was not agreeing to do what needed to be done. I think I think that, that you believe that absolutely. The use of tariffs for a non trade issue is an appropriate use. I think if you if you get to the point where you think it's a national crisis. National security problem. You do you do what you have to do. Absolutely. And I and I would suggest any member would do that, with let me ask you this. Would it be appropriate for the president threatened tariffs on NATO countries that they think they aren't spending enough on defense if they think he thinks that's a national security challenge? Well, that's up to the present as I haven't given that five seconds thought, would you would it be appropriate to threaten tariffs on a country that hasn't pulled out of the Iran deal? I haven't given that five seconds thought, you know, would it be appropriate for the president's threatened Taras? If a country isn't doing. Enough to block while away from their markets. I haven't given that five seconds. Well, I know you haven't given it five seconds. But here's the point, we need to know what is the line in which tariffs, which affect markets, as well as an Eric Jonkers tariffs at the end of day, our taxes, and they're not hacks, is paid by the country, their taxes paid by American consumers and businesses, I would wonder what you think it's appropriate for Mexico to put tariffs on us because we're not doing enough to stop illegal guns and cast from going across the border. I mean that's a decision that, that, that Mexico has to make. I don't know how big a problem that is. It's just not something I study. I'm a trade person. But you had an opinion about Taras as it relates to a non-trade issue. I have opinions about all kinds of things. I try to keep them to myself, how well it would be good because, you know, I'm afraid the president is at the point of I'm going to call him tariff. Man. He thinks that Tarasov the end all and be all at the end of the day. And it's a dangerous economic game to play, especially when we're not talking about. Trade related issues. And I hope that internally you'll express that, because I know you don't want to express it here, but I could see the response. Let me ask you, do you think that this action with Mexico makes it more or less likely to get a comprehensive lasting deal with China? It makes it more likely more likely. So how does how is it that you make a deal? And then, like the US MCA, and then all of a sudden for something has absolutely nothing to do with trade. You get tariffs slapped on you. How does that make any potential trading partner more willing to engage with us, if they don't understand actually what type of commitment will keep in the first place. I think they do understand the second place to the extent. We end up with a with a secure border, that will make our relationships between the United States and Mexico. Far better more prosperous for both of us. I think that's what Mexico wants. I think that's what the United States..

"Until he said, there's going back onto, and they're like, whoa, whoa, whoa, there on a plane the next day and they're coming with numbers, and they're coming with details things that it was clear. They have been slow walking because they were calling his glass, and if I put it another way I'm signed right now. I'm taking my boots because I see the president is serious about escalating the tariffs as necessary. And now that you see Mexico talking about the people with us. The worst thing, the worst nightmare for China is, if we can get congress to ratify, the US MCA, because that means completely out of the equation, because we now get to work on North America with partners who are willing to come to the table, and we know take our threat seriously. So this is kind of two fold. I think the president is absolutely wanting to get this crisis of the border under control. And clearly, he is willing to do it by whatever means necessary understanding that he doesn't have a democrat congress to work with. But he also here on the trade front and saying, look, guys, look, what I do look what country no happens if you don't have the partnership of the United States, and they're willing to people. So I think it's a double win, but that's something you're probably only going to hear hear the via compliment in of itself. Highlights a couple of things. Okay. So I the details we talked about a bit of these six thousand troops attempting to better police, there Mexico's on board with a quantum all, but also the extension of the migration protection protocols the MVP or the remain in Mexico policy under the arrangement we can return asylum-seekers to Mexico while their claims almost always alternately rejected are adjudicated, this avoids one of the biggest problems of the current policy, which allows us island seekers into the country. Never to be removed even if their claims are rejected, and they are ordered deported. So, like I bring that up. Because for one it's an important part of this. But to it also goes and it really does undermine. Mine the narrative against the president of him, just being racist, when it comes to our border policies this shows at least in my opinion, that he wants to do something actually, comprehensive to deal with the problem before it even gets to America inside of Mexico, and I it, it's fascinating. When you see the New York Times go after him and you both of you guys are corrected cracks me up when they throw cold water on the whole thing. And yet need is okay. You're just basically admitting that he accomplished something a few months ago and just not now but it also highlights the position that the mainstream media put themselves in because they can't go and give him any credit on this. Because if they do that, when we start talking about things like a wall again, an actual border security. They're kind of they've basically put themselves in a corner. They've basically put themselves in a box that they can't get out of. But isn't it interesting that they'd gone even realize the corner, they've put them kids trying to get them to admit that there's a crisis at the border any efforts to stymie, the crisis like? No, no. That's not a thing. You're like, wait a minute. Which is it, it can't be both. But I think that's why their credibility is down ratings are down because every single day. Their only goal is not to report. The news, they're only call is undermined President Trump batch in a map and where we could be in the process is the president has the support of Democrats in congress and being pretty doesn't have to be one hundred percent positive news at something better than ninety percent. Negative way currently. That could be. Because right now a big issue, I think with why received the inflexible coverage, our border is because they know what happening up here and they they're never gonna get anything done. It's totally fine pay for tens of thousands of dollars to as we'll get you there, because they're never going to fix the loopholes and immigration system. Because right now, congress will do it. That's the message. And how is that fair to our president and quickly agent, and he who go out every single day? Trying to protect American citizens. That's they are with the Democrats in congress are doing to them and to American citizens, and frankly, everyone here who's trying to go through the process legally. And when do the Democrats in congress catch any heat for not doing their job? I mean, if you know the they agree at least, you know, some of them have have agreed in in, you know, in rhetoric at least that there's a major problem with our southern border that there is a crisis down there yet. What have they passed? What, what have they put together, why have they not done their job? And what is their version of border security? Look like what is their version of, of mitigating this crisis of stopping all of the human suffering? That's going on around our southern border. What is their version of that look like, why haven't they sent that to the president's desk? Right. And instead of doing that they're bringing in the guy from the Watergate scandal this committee. We see that, right? We see that instead of dealing with the border crisis instead of ratifying instead of working on prescription drug crosses and bring down, Chris prescription drug prices. They are looking into the guy who has been charged with a cover-up of Watergate scandal. Can you explain to me what the point of that was, I still? I don't know what the point of that dog and pony show was yesterday. Well, I tell you that, but I can play a democrat livers name. But who said, yeah, no, this is a cedar. He totally admitted it. And so are spreading because they get paid to be there to get paid if the set out and instead of by the way, but a figuring out how to protect the twenty twenty election. They're still trying to figure out how to protect their image because they thought for sure Donald Trump was going to get elected. It's crazy that sad. And but, but again, I tell you, what, this is played in President Trump's favorite twenty twenty because despite all of that, again, look at the dog pay that he's running trying to get things done trying to or the beta compasses hip at that. Yes. I get what my job is not that the talking point, though. That is reality. I think people see it because we feel it every single day in our daily lives things are just going better. I think you just summed up in advertently. The the entirety of the one hundred six. Congress. It's just theatre. They haven't done the damn thing other than theater, they didn't even get a Tony nomination out of it. Cassius meddling, we're going to end it on that, because that was spectacular as deputy communications director, if you so much for, for the times, and it was great talking with you again. Great to be here. We'll talk soon. Yeah. This, this Watergate this Watergate, John, Jane. You know, the background of this sky. Yeah. Who use it? I know the background. But I you know, it's one of those stories that I really didn't pay a lot of attention to because there's no relevancy whatsoever. But that also means I don't understand why the hell they brought them there in the first his Twitter feed, look, like some of the worst fans of ours. The a d I mean the guy was like the anti the orange. Manny is bad. It's. He happened to have like some loose tie with Watergate. So they get that guy 'cause he'll talk about the correlation between Watergate in the mother investigation. It only works if they're going the route of comparing what a hoax, this whole thing was right. And what does doesn't matter guys in the it was unbelievable? Whole one hundred sixteenth congressman it is. It's just theatre. Yeah. Yeah. Bad theater to Hamilton fun, even like pads, right gives a bad place for the amazing technicolor Dreamcoat. Please give that, that give me Donny Osmond does Joseph Sarah go now we're talking give us that, that one with dean Cain, and Kristy Swanson. Gee bales. Right. Did win a Tony.

Don suber. He's a retired journalist newsman. He's also an author Hooper Suber, Don Suber. He wrote this. It's like if you order subway, Uber was Suber. I'm looking forward to that movie. What was it? Stupor stupor super l'est funny. Yeah. Yeah. Mailmen johnny. And, and Batista Givat like becoming the new rock. He's like, he's like in everything. Yeah. A whole bunch of movies coming out. Yeah. He's a funny guy. That is not good. This is Don Suber. He's an author and retired drillers. This me. All right. I saw good is fine. Throw some books about Trump. He says this is most reason blog, the Los Angeles Times ran a piece, demonstrated just to what is wrong with today's ramped up rhetoric. The headline read this I remember seeing the red the stupid piece, call immigrant detention centers what they really are colon concentration camps. No. Yeah, no, no, no. You should read a book about concentration camps. Yeah, and then go visit an immigration detention centre. Yeah. You will see stark differences. Yeah. I was just notably the lack of killing what was what was really fascinating. In this piece, I went to the blog when I was looking at it, and there's a comment section in there, and it was going through reading the comments from a bunch of individuals who had read the article, and a lot of them were first hand accounts of individuals who have to it recently travelled to that part of the world. And Wor recalling what they'd seen of these former concentration camps. I mean just in the comments alone, reading these firsthand accounts, it was incredibly compelling stuff. But of course, he says, what we just said. No. That's a lie. Right. The centers nothing like concentration camps. No one is tattooed with the number no one is worth to death. No one has sent to gas chambers. There are no mass cremations. In fact, there are no cremations at all look. And I've been I've been to those immigration detention centres, and I've seen the kids that are behind those cages, and they're behind the behind those cages for their own safety. When you when I was there. The Nogales border patrol station. When this whole thing started on the Obama administration, just just when it comes to the children, right? The, the, the kids in cages, this is what the whole that whole thing was pointed at the stories that the border patrol agents, there told me they were, they were hellishly frightening. What these children, why they had the split the children up, especially the, the kids that were coming, you know, of age in the young teenagers. And, and what they were the way that they were reacting to one another and the things they had that they had to divide everybody. Everybody got time outside, everybody got got more than more than enough food that they needed, but they can't just be released into the world. They have to be particular location. And when the borders overwhelmed like that. There's nothing else you can do. All right. So back to this guy's piece running. That piece was irresponsible, because it downplays the evil that Hitler and his nation did the American left has demoted Hitler. He's no longer a monster who killed twelve million people in concentration. Camps. He is no longer an anti semitic demagogue who wiped out two thirds of the Jewish population in Europe. He's no longer a savage..

"Being leveled on the Mexican government in to encourage them to help out with immigration stopped the flow, we know they can stop the flow. We know the drug cartels run all of Mexico, so they can do whatever they want the thing is this is the strategy. A good one on the part of the Trump campaign. If you want someone to work with you should you. Threaten them. Well, we don't have a great relationship with the new Mexican president. He is actually a Trump hater personified, but still this way to warm him up. I think we should be putting the tariffs in there from the beginning to be quite honest with you. Why don't why we have a sixty to eighty billion dollar gap that goes deficit, I should say that goes back to NAFTA and I mentioned trying to take care of that. The US MCA, but Pelosi doesn't care about how much consumers pay for goods. So it sits there, not being voted on then the issue of Robert Mueller. Do you think Robert Muller, feels that he is above the law? What do you mean? He says he's not going to speak in front of the judiciary committee. What if he is subpoenaed? Would he not show? I think Jerry Nadler is afraid to subpoena him. Do you think he do you want to hear from Robert Muller, even though he says he'll only speak about what is in the report? Well, he didn't do that. The other day he went a little bit about. Above and beyond. What was in the report and basically said that Donald Trump was guilty of obstruction of Justice? How could you be guilty of obstruction of Justice? If a crime wasn't committed think about it. Let's hear Donald Trump comment just on that in particular thing clip. Number one, please.

"Is curling. I'm Gary McNamara. Eight six six ninety redeye we'd an interesting last call the show yesterday gentleman who called and proclaimed as soon as he got on Trump supporter, and I support Trump one of the reasons is because of trade by the end of the discussion he had Trump supporter, but he disagrees with Donald Trump on trade, which we found to be quite interesting because it didn't take long to convert him. We look on on trade overall when the president ran when he ran his campaign. He said the biggest problem that we have is the trade deficit right trade deficits now greater than it. You know, it's it's skyrocketed since Trump has been in in in office. In order. If you want to go to the trade deficit, your actual trade deals would have to mess tariffs that no countries would agree to countries. Basically looking for more free trade agreement knocking down the barriers as we have said what the president was saying back then about you know, he'll still once in a while. I think couple times in the last few months. He's mentioned, you know, he's he's mentioned about that. You know, we're getting killed in these trade deals, and when he says getting killed us because of the trade deficit, but the US MCA's not gonna do anything. It's ninety eight percent the same. It opens. It opens more markets for free trade. There are a few little things here there, you know, dairy for for, you know, dairy for the United States soft timber for Canada, you know, little things that when you look at the overall amount of trade are just little victories at each country can claim, but they really don't affect overall the huge amount of. Trade that happens between the the two countries. So as we've said for the most part the old map is ninety eight. The new nap has ninety eight percent of the old NAFTA. Whether it goes into effect or not really isn't going to make that much of a difference. When it comes to the the movement of of good back and forth between the the countries, and it's not gonna make any difference in the trade deficit. And so the president now seems to care about the fact of. Is the economy could which is what you have to look at because trade deficits as we said the president's one of his beliefs has been for forty years. There's only one good side of trade. And that's when you sell the actual durable. Good and get the currency from another country that. Actually, getting the durable. Good and giving them. Your currency, he views as losing in trade, which of course is not true. The history trade tells you that is not true. And so we've already gone through all of that. But what I found was you know, and so when we talked about what the president campaigned on what he's actually doing. He's seems to be overall take away some of the the the, you know, the the steel and aluminum terrace, which eventually have to come down in order to get NAFTA. Right. There benching going to to to go away and what he's doing on China. And we've you the whole deal would cannon Mexico's different than what China would the whole deal with China. China's been been cheating. And so the president overall is not as bad as I thought he was going to be an and when it came to the free trade agreements that we that we made with Mexico and Canada, I'm probably about ninety five percent, please five percent pleased. But that's okay. It would be that way. It was Bush or anybody else or that that did a free because I think that free trade deals more managed trade. And even if I agree with them. I think that almost all barriers should be should be let down as long as you have an enforcement mechanism for it. Eat whether the dairy the timber, whatever. But and so the president has ended up with his extreme rhetoric on free trade in that we have to even out the trade deficit. The president has now distraught that he doesn't talk about that much at all. Now, it's the economy's growing economy is growing economy is growing, which we believe it should be. So even though we disagreed with his rhetoric in the campaign overall. We think he's much better than what he was promoting in in the campaign. I find it interesting because it seemed like the caller was surprised by it. And it did remind me of going back to the old Ron Paul days where we would get Ron Paul supporters would say, oh, no he's against Napa. He wants to gone. He wants free trade gone. We had to explain I don't know how many times dozens upon dozens of times to the most loyal Ron Paul supporters. The no Ron Paul is an absolute free. Trader he looks at the NAFTA as managed trade? He doesn't want NAFTA gone to go in the protectionist mode. He wants NAFTA gone. Because he believes if you're a business in Iowa, you should be able to do business with anybody else in the entire world without any government intervention at all. And they were shocked by that. And it seemed like the caller was yesterday was a little bit shocked by the fact that you know, that that Trump was more of a free trader, and then he made known I find it interesting that this mindset still exist, and we didn't get a chance to address it because at the end of the the call yesterday, but he said, no, we shouldn't be trading with anybody. There's no reason just pull out of China completely no deal with China. No deal with anybody. We should just deal within ourselves and just trade within ourselves, and we explained to him, and he was quite excitably had more cups of coffee than I normally even having into night. But we have slow him down and say. Will we can prove that you're wrong that isn't the ideal way to do it. And it's a very simple concept. And I'm amazed people still believe that the United States just trade within itself. Well, number one prices Skyrock, right? Because you've limited the ability to have competition worldwide competition, so price skyrocket, fine. But the most important thing is you're giving American manufacturers only three hundred twenty million people as your customer base instead of seven billion that simple as we've talked about before many people are shot GM would have never made it to the bail up it would've been gone long before. Oh, yeah. If it wasn't for their sales in China their sales in China's with prop them up right now. General Motors sells way more vehicles in China than they do in the United States. And people don't even realize it. And so I'm amazed at that mindset still exist, and I just wanna to make sure we clarify clarify that because it was right at the end of the show yesterday United States just trade within the United States. And we send you keep talking about you support Donald Trump. But Trump doesn't believe that Trump has businesses all over the world, right? There's a reason there's a reason that Trump has businesses all over the world trade. Find it interesting that people will throw their absolute political idolatry at someone and then be shocked when it's so obvious that what you believe that person stands for is not what they actually stand for or what they do in their own business practices yet you somehow believe that they do. And I always find that interesting because it was the same thing with Ron Paul when people really the most loyal supporters of Ron Paul had no idea what he really thought on trae. Well, and it's interesting too because I think the with the Ron Paul campaign. It was likely. I would say poor messaging, but actually he talked in very specific terms when he was running. Ron Paul was talking about, you know, the the managed trade, and he also talked about NAFTA agreement. So he talked about NAFTA. Being a problem any went into it. But obviously, it's it's not surprising these days or even back, then it wasn't surprising that people just don't pay attention. They kind of hear what they wanna hear. And then they formulate in their mind. I don't know this picture or the or idea of what the candidate is in fan for which is something you, and I always go back to the ideas. The people running for office. We're looking for them the person we believe is best qualified that will to implement the ideas that we support pretty. It's critical that you go in. And critique everything that they're that they're doing sang along way because they're having to prove themselves. That's replying for job. They work for us. And you have to. Can you imagine? In in the private sector, you know candidate the walks in and then the executive president of that just interview. Oh, man. This guy is the greatest, you know, waving banners and the whole thing. No, look, I understand the political support you're trying to you're trying to gain that support helped momentum's the candidate that you support. But it must also include the tearing down of the ideas along the way, they're gonna have to earn their place in that office. And even after you, you may vote for them, and they're still going to have to every day or in that place and earned the respect. And I guess the if we're, you know, giving grades or whatever on shop form it's gonna have to earn the great they're going to have to do the work. You you talked earlier about Trump in two thousand sixteen we supported, you know, many of the ideas, we talked about things, you know, especially on border security that was something that I really think was the number one issue for him that that really. And of course, regulation and everything else that who's talking about in business border security was a big issue because of some key stories during that year and leading up to that you and the president was the candidate at the time was right on his issues. But the the discussion became, you know, something different because we saw the idolatry. We saw a lot of things come come out of the campaign, and it comes down to what? What are they going to be able to do we didn't know? No, Trump was completely unknown. And now we can look back on the work done and say for the most part on most major issues a good job. And I think that on trade economic issues Trump has been a work in progress, and I do feel and this is the because look on on some of the things that he had said before we had passionate disagreements with. We did look at it. When he added Larry cudlow to his economic advisors. We said that's a great great ad, and I'm going to say that because. Hiring. Larry cudlow is like hiring me. Our philosophies are are quite alike, but it showed a willingness for the president to listen. Because, you know, having Navarro, for example, there even ever even lighthizer that are much more protectionist. He was surrounding himself with protectionist. And apparently he somehow had the belief that he needed more on how trade work so he brought Larry cudlow in. And so even though the rhetoric times remained the same you. And I always looked and said, what's the substance of the actual free trade agreements isn't what he was promising in the campaign or has he evolved. And that's okay. If he's if he's evolved as long as it's the right way to do it. I'm happy with it shows willing to learn and people that say that well, he is completely totally arrogant buffoon. Who will listen to nobody? Well. Maybe that stereotype of him isn't true. Well, it'd be his maybe he is willing to listen congressmen with them now for over a year. And I thought it was great when you had everybody in unity all of his economic Steph. Yes with with on Monday with with China because China's different ballgame than Europe and even Mexico and Canada. But but it it seems to me that was a. In a time when it and this is the whole point the media can seem like everything going on in the administration has chaos, and it isn't that's a that's a false way to look at it. But they need to keep that narrative going. There are actually discussions of substance and things of substance being done all the time on foreign policy and domestic policy, and this this president was never in politics before and politics is not business. Right. It's not the same thing businessperson in there. Like, it's a it's a refreshing. It's refreshing change of pace to have. But politics, isn't business. He went from being the boss all of his life to being an employee of the American exactly. So again, I think that and I hope it continues on on on trade deals, and the tariffs that are that are left, especially the ones on Mexico and Canada that the president realized that that China was. Does if you're talking the trade enemy China is the one that we should've isolated from the very beginning. We shouldn't have isolated ourselves from the free world. Even for the tariffs that the European Union had on they have their own problems. Those you can work out. Right. You can work out anything with Canada, you can work out anything with Mexico. Those aren't the problem always was China. And so I think maybe now they're starting to isolate China and the threat I hope it doesn't damage the US economy too much. But to have a free trade agreement to have a.

"Peter Barnes with Bob moon. Bob, it appears President Trump has some unlikely allies in his quest to past the US MCA to top Senate Democrats, including longtime free trade folks here at Brown are crafting a labor enforcement proposal that could help ease the way for passing the new NAFTA the US Mexico Canada agreement. Bloomberg news congressional reporter Laura fan is with us to fill in the details. Laura Sherrod Brown, supporting Donald Trump who would have thunk it. You know? It's an interesting alliance. You know, the this is Jerry Brown who is from Ohio State that's been battered by manufacturing job losses. And he has found some alive some agreement with the president on some trades policies. He already had a back the presence levies on steel and aluminum imports from Mexico, Canada and the European Union even campaign. On that last year in a to get his third term in Ohio. And now he and Ron Wyden are working together on a proposal that would create more enforcement of labor portion of this deal that would be helpful probably in getting it through the house. They're starting to generate some ideas, you know, the deal itself calls on Mexico to reform labour laws to let workers engage in collective bargaining. And what the the two of them are talking about is having a requirement in a side agreement. Not something that requires this trade deal to be reopened. But aside agreement that requires more than enforcement personnel in Mexico to make sure there's compliance with us to have licenses between the US government and the co government in this regard. And then the most interesting component would be a Mexican in. US officials could go to actual factories in Mexico. They believed their labor law. Violations if they see them than the goods ship from those factories would not benefit from the lower tariffs in the deal. So does this mean that at the end of the day that the Democrats may end up supporting the new trade deal with the with Mexico and Canada it increases the chances. I mean, it's pretty significant that cheer Brown isn't saying. No, he's in there at the table in Ron Wyden is a significant figure too because he's the top democrat on the Senate finance committee, which has jurisdiction over trade policy. And there are talking with the house. You know, the the the real challenge the house, the House Democrats, they wanna see these types of changes in also some environmental enforcement and a few other aspects of this trade deal get some adjustment. And that's going to be necessary to get it through the democrat led house, and you know, freshman Democrats that have just been elected are going to be a key part of that. So this is starting a dialogue. And it's it is a good sign. There was a second positive sign that came from Pelosi herself last week had I had a chance to ask her to press conference about whether or not she would. Try to use this deal as leverage to get other things that other policy preferences that President Trump might not otherwise signed like a minimum wage increase. There's been a lot of speculation that she might do that. Because she actually did something like that in two thousand eight one President Bush was trying to push through Colombia free trade deal. And it was one of the reasons why it never happened who's pushing for a lot of extra things, including more unemployment benefits, you know, more infrastructure spending. And it was one of the factors and she was willing to say last week that she's not going to be doing that. She's looking at this trade deal it stands on its own. She wants to see improvements. And so that was that was significant as well. The reality here is that people like Sherrod Brown are playing to the voters have home right to the hometown crowd here. Absolutely. Absolutely. And you know, he also knows he knows his audience while I mean, President Trump won Ohio in twenty sixteen by eight percentage points. So this is an issue. This is an area where they agree because it resonates back home for him. So tell us more about about other things that the that congress may do to help try east to ease. Passage of this new trade agreement because I mean, this is one thing of is sleep. But are there other proposals floating around out there? This is the first on a specific proposal that we're aware of this kind of floating around and the president has an actually introduced the legislation implementing the deal yet that comes up, and he's trying to see his timetable is trying to see if he can get this trade deal through congress before a month long, August recess well in advance. With the twenty twenty elections, and it gets harder by the day. If it goes beyond that point. And you know, there's some other issues areas that Democrats want to see addressed including the environment and pharmaceuticals, so we're going to have to see what happens there. We know that the US Trade Representative Robert lighthizer is going to be meeting with freshmen Democrats in the house to try to move things along and see if he can, you know, create some relationships and start talking about this and pave the way towards passage, but we're gonna have to see, you know, my favorite question here. What could possibly go wrong? There are. A lot of moving parts to this US MCA. And so that doesn't necessarily ensure Senator Brown's support. No, it doesn't and his we we had a chance to speak with one of his top aides said that you know, there's other things going on they have to wait in among other things if you care about the, you know, the labor agreement that side agreement you might be able to forge you've got also see what Mexico does it's supposed to pass the legislation. You know, they're supposed to make changes to their laws and people are going to want to see what that looks like in the coming in the coming weeks and months I keep the game. Also, a thing that could go wrong. Bob is just the the personal animus between congressional Democrats and the president these days. Couldn't couldn't I just keep thinking that that's going to going to get in the way. There's always that potential. I mean, we've seen that happen before the president changes positions on things quite a bit in the types of messages. He sends out the tweets and sometimes personal attacks on key players in debates. We had that happen a lot with the attempt to repeal ObamaCare where even Mitch McConnell found himself under fire by the president there were attacks and things going on and the president shifted his positions on some things publicly throughout that debate. A few times that you know, 'cause. The House Democrats holding all these investigations of the president. Absolutely. So that can also that could also factor in and so we'll we're just gonna have to see it is like you said at the beginning. It's if it's a toxic environment. And our thanks to Bloomberg news. Congressional reporter Laura lead fan. It's a story that will of course, continue to develop. You're listening to Bloomberg politics policy and power on Bloomberg radio coming up, the president has a new strategy for his reelection campaign touting his green credentials. This is Bloomberg..

"Eight six six ninety redeye. He is heard calling. I'm Gary McNamara welcoming good morning. Thank you so much for being here. The economy grew at two point six percent in the fourth quarter of last year making a two point nine percent for all of last year. Right at three percent. Yeah. Attempt below three percent is where the average growth has been in the station for the longest time roughly last year a third over the average of the Obama administration. So it's good the the corporate tax cuts and for most the economic periodicals I read yesterday so that the corporate tax cuts, especially increased investment, which was really really good right now two point six overall. It was expected to be two point two two point six beats the projections. But I do believe that inside the White House. They are looking at this and saying, okay, we wanted it to be higher. And I do believe that they are now concerned about the tariffs. We've talked about the president seeming to well, not seeming, but actually coming out, and this may have this actually got lost in the news where they said, no twenty-five percent tariffs. We're not temporarily insane. We're going to delay it it's gone. We are we are. We are not going to do. That and you weren't surprised by we had always said that that most likely the effects of the tariffs because of when they were put on would be seen in the first or second quarter of of this year. So that's yet to be determined. I don't know if they looked at the numbers the White House, or they just looked at their weekly numbers, whatever they get inside the White House, and I don't know what they have access to. But it seems as if the president wants to get the China thing done. It's interesting that we've heard nothing on NAFTA two point. Oh, or US MCA is that what it is. Yeah. Okay. We've heard nothing on that. The there's been nothing from the White House about talking about wise and congress moving this forward nothing. Which means is is it to the point where the president just doesn't want to bring it up. Because remember remember the president throughout the threat that if you don't pass a new NAFTA. Well, then we're not going to stay with yelled NAFTA. We're going to go back to pre NAFTA. I'm going to call it an emergency. And do that. He hasn't said a word about it and in China now, it looks like that. There will be a deal. They're not going to threaten the twenty-five percent terrorists. It seemed like they have some type of enforcement mechanism on on a trade deal. And I think the president wants to that to get to get done. And so I do believe there was concern in the White House, especially with people like Larry cudlow that look Mr President. If you don't have the economic growth, you're dead in two thousand twenty it's got to continue. You've gotta hit three percent again this year, and there's many economic experts believe we will not reach re- percent if the tariff stay. Yeah. I think too. If your measuring the the wealth that is lost in the issue when it comes to proprietary issues and intellectual issues that that we that China's been not been playing by the rules for for ages. If you if the market the global market sees that and there is a true enforcement mechanism in that agreement and they see that as solved. Then I think you're gonna see a a pretty good bounce just from that. The intellectual property issues with with China has been a big deal with the US, but locally. And that's what Larry cudlow talked about just before he went to the White House to be his chief economic adviser. And clearly, I think that's where they were. You know, that focus was if you come away with that win the world is going to praise you for that alone. Right. Forget about the you know, the whole trade deficit thing. You can still talk about that and say, well, we didn't get that done, but China's buying more, and you can claim a small victory here and there and they're going to be buying a, you know, the president is good about. Using plenty of hyperbole. It's going to be the greatest deal ever. And and you can say, well, they're buying more than and no one is going to care enough to separate that what they'll care about is the fact that the terrorists are gone they'll care about you actually did get something done on intellectual property rights. And they'll care that that the economy is growing again, and they can invest because that intellectual property has a wealth, that's wealth being stolen and somebody wrote me and said, you know, maybe when he was talking the other night at in while yesterday on yesterday's show were carrying and he mentioned that we're losing worry lizard. Yes. We're losing three hundred to five hundred billion. No, I believe they said to me in the Email. I think he was talking about intellectual property rights. No, no, no, no. That was the trade deficit. He was and he has by the way, and I understand somebody thinking that. But. But the fact is no he has talked about losing many times before it's a point of discussion that we brought up anytime. He believes that if you. He he does. Well, a part of him believes. I don't know it seems like his his I cannot get a consistency from this president on a lot of economic ideas. And and one of them is is trade because as we've said on trade, he is held every single position on trade from protectionist to total free market, right? Well, you cannot hold off. Those simultaneously it. It doesn't work that way. But no, he he believes one of his long held beliefs is that there's only one trade. That's good. And that is if somebody gives you their dollars and buys your product that if you buy their tangible good that you get well thought of and and you give them the piece of paper that the person who gets the the person or country that gets the piece of paper where that piece of paper lies is a win where that product lies tangible or good or service wherever that ends up is a negative loss to you. That's about as close as I can get a from what the president says because he's never explained it fully you, and I said this about Obama, and I'll say this about every president, you know, more about what Eric can I think about economics than any president. No president ever really truly explains economics and how they think Obama didn't do it. Bush didn't do it. He was all over the place, which I think Reagan did it before long before he became president on many on on on on the general social issues. But remember Reagan didn't want the tax cuts everybody, you know, everybody looks at Reagan and says, you know, the tax cuts attacks because he was very worried about the tax cuts. It was my football and political hero all at the same. Yes. My football hero, Jack Kemp. The only championships might teams ever one was under Jack Kemp as quarterback for the mills. It was Jack Kemp who convinced him to do it. It was Jack Kemp who really believe in. In the the the tax cuts. Kemp was it. I mean, he was that guy. Now, he was the guy on economic growth the part that there's a great debate on. Even among conservatives when we have brought it up before is the fact that, you know, Reagan only had so much power and agreed to budgets that he shouldn't agree. He shouldn't have agreed to you know, with tip O'Neill way way back then. And so for every dollar we brought in more we spent more we spent more than we took in. Does. It doesn't matter whether you make more money or not whether there's more into the treasury, if you're spending more well that defeats the whole purpose, and it has given the Democrats and forty forty-three did the same. Yeah. It has given the argument though, that well if you cut taxes the deficit still goes up, well, that's because they're spending more that's like saying, I was making twenty thousand dollars. I got a ten thousand dollar raise. I got thirty thousand dollars that I'm making now year instead of twenty thousand dollars a year at but I went from spending. Twenty thousand dollars a year to forty thousand dollars a year. And so my raise cost me to be ten thousand dollars in debt. No the raised in cause you to do that. It was you're spending the caused you that. Yeah. So. I just know. I so I I look at. I look at the two point six I look at what's going on right now. I saw part of Kudlow speech before CPAC yesterday. And it was it was it was pretty good. I mean, I think he still has to swallow a little pride when he talks about the president's trade policies because we know exactly where Kudlow thanks this up before Kudlow is an Kudlow was me every time I heard Kudlow talk in the past. I'd say that's me as what I believe. Then he got onto this president and started saying, well, you know, the terrorists and the tariffs at you know, he didn't believe it. Everybody knows it. He wrote the letter last March before he became remember the letter he wrote? You know, he was a cosigner to the letter that said, Mr President don't put the tariffs in next thing. You know, he's the president's economic adviser. But but that's good though. I ultimately of his philosophy wins wins over then then then that's the effects that. I'm looking for. And I'm here, I'm happy at that point. And and I I have this theory. And by the way, it's it's. I don't know if it's planned, certainly it is I guess it is intentional very intentional that if it has been decided if there is that true consensus there and his economic inner circle that you've got to do away with tariffs. Then they understand then the timing. The political timing is everything you're going to have to do that to a point. It won't be just about what happens with the stock market because that can go up and down and fluctuate, you know, turn around on a dime. No pun intended. But the the real investment where you get those greater GDP numbers. That's what you're looking for. And when our trade partners, and our domestic producers believe that there is going to be that long term growth, or this is going to be a long-term policy rather than they're going to invest long term those long term investments bring about greater wrote. That's what that's exactly what we need right now. And because the economy everywhere else if you look at it, you take those tariffs off the table. And I I don't know what we would see in a in mid twenty twenty by the time, you get to convention, and and that's going to be important. But look it's going to be important. Whether the president wins or not it's always going to be important to me. It's important to everybody. A great economy..
