Anna Wintour defends Vogue’s controversial Kamala Harris cover
"It's been a busy week for vogue and anna winter. I spoke with her last friday about her thirty two year. Tenure as editor in chief of vogue. We also discussed february cover featuring vice president-elect kamala harris the very next day the february cover leaked and internet react and not in a good way in the photo harris's standing in front of a green and pink backdrops in a black jacket skinny pants pants and converse sneakers which have become famous and social media the twitter reactions. I saw were overwhelmingly negative. Some took issue with the styling oppose others with the lighting only spoke last week. Winter told me that she found the cover welcoming and relaxed but the general consensus online was that it was too casual that it did not rise to the historic occasion of the first woman. Vice president the first black woman vice president that it was disrespectful. It's certainly didn't bode well for conde nast or for winter. Who is been here before having been accused of racially insensitive coverage and workplace discrimination by some of our staff just seven months ago according to people familiar with the matter on both sides. There is not a written formal agreement in place. These people also say the vice president elect team had an expectation of a different cover. One in which harris is wearing a blue suit and standing in front of a gold backdrop. It's a more stately and serious photo and one that is clearly more fitting for a vice president by sunday. That photo was released as a digital cover along with the one that was originally leaked at the time of this recording. People familiar with the matter said the photo with the sneakers will be the only physical cover they added. That vogue is considering using the more formal portrait in a second print edition after the cover leaked. I went back to winter for comment. She said quote. Obviously you've heard and understood the reaction to the print cover and i just want to reiterate that it was absolutely not our intention to in any way diminish the importance of vice president-elect incredible victory we want nothing but to celebrate vice president-elect harris's amazing victory and the important moment this is america's history and particularly for women of color all over the world. She also said there was no formal agreement about what the choice of the cover would be and when the two images arrived at folk all of us felt very very strongly that the less formal portrait of the vice president elect really reflected the moment that we were living in which we are in the midst as we still are of the most appalling pandemic is taking lives by the minute and we felt to reflect this tragic moment in global history. A much less formal picture something. That was very very accessible and approachable and real really reflected the hallmark of the biden harris campaign and everything that they're trying to and i'm sure it will achieve. I'm not exactly sure with the pandemic has to do with it. But here's my conversation with anna winter and just as a reminder again. This interview was recorded before the cover leaked. Can you tell me about the cover. Shoot and how you got her to do this. Well we're very on it that we have current vice president elect on the cover. I think by the time we published. She will be the vice president. And obviously it's a historic moment for women of color for america and it was an ongoing compensation for time and obviously with everything that was going only the election. We were thrilled when we knew that she would make the time for the shoot and honored and we had featured her invoked before and obviously covered the campaign and many different ways of the campaign season. And we very much wanted to have this cover around the time of the inauguration because we felt that it would be cia moment of celebration and joy pitcher directly. Did you picture yourself. No that was done by my features team and they were in touch with her office but it was very much a compensation between bogan the vice president alex office. I can't believe i'm asking this. But what is she wearing. Well the favorite item of clothing that she's wearing on the cover for me is that she's wearing sneakers. Well of course converse. That's right and the picture was taken by a wonderful young photographer talent. Who had previously photograph beyond safe for us and also wildly successful december cover of harry styles and he had the wonderful idea putting her in front of the colors of sorority which sort of like pink and green and she's standing in a black pant suit and a white t shirt and and seko's is this. Her clothing is these. These are close. Yes and she looks fantastic. Did you want to put her in other clones or we were very open. I mean i think that she has a very assured sensus style. I if you look at any images of her during the campaign season is she has a very strong sense of self what she wants to wear so she was very clear on what she wanted to wear. And on the inside pictures. She has a super chic blue Michael kors pantsuit. And i think it's very much in character And i think that the the kaaba itself is so charming and so relaxed and for me so surprising and so real. And as i listened to the president elect and the vice president elect talk about embassy and unity and bringing people together to me that this covers symbolizes. That i feel it's a very welcoming image.

Joe Bidens presidency
"And foremost happy new year to all our listeners. At the ever present risk of tempting fate it does feel like two thousand and twenty one can only be an improvement on two thousand and twenty one. Primary cause for optimism is the fact that after january twentieth earth's most powerful office will no longer be held by america's worst on imprisoned citizen description. Correct as of this broadcast between an untamed pandemic economic crisis and the spectacular mess made in general by president. Donald trump president elect joe biden faces a daunting oval office in trae won joint first of all by christchurch mcnichols news editor and by suzanne lynch washington dc correspondent with the irish times in this first part of the show. We'll look mostly at what president-elect joe biden wants to do and will do domestically but chris festival on that thought of succeeding donald trump. How much political capital does joe biden inherit just by virtue of not being donald trump. Well to be honest in some ways. That is a question that will be. I think more important end to discuss in the second half of our show. We look at foreign policy. Because i think that is where there is arguably a lot more political capital. You know joe biden will enter office of this month to lead a country that is still extraordinarily divided. It has to be said that whatever Court decisions were taken efforts to reverse. This election rejected by courts and by many academics. Who saw you know and others observers. Who saw no real evidence of fraud. It is important to point out. I think that potentially a majority of republicans are going to come into this year. Voters believing. Joe biden is illegitimate that that is not correct. That is not that is not what happened. But it is nevertheless a danger for democracy. And it's something that really i think is important to watch. Joe biden essentially has a tremendous amount of goodwill from half of the country who expects him to reverse many of the policies that donald trump implemented over the last four years and he will do a number of those from day one but we should not forget the other half of the country that will be causing a huge stink about all of this and it will be very interesting to watch how he tries to bridge those gaps particularly when it is such a strong divide as i say even in the sense of many just simply not even seeing him as their president suzanne to bring you in that division that chris delineates the is going to make extremely complicated one question. Joe biden will have to grapple with which is what does he do about donald trump. Does he as best he can. Just ignore him and hope he goes away or does he turn various congressional committees and the department of justice loose to try and get to the bottom wherever it may be of whatever. Wrongdoing was done. I don't think joe biden instinct will be to do that. I mean joe biden has presented himself very much as the kind of the nation's healer. He's talked about his own track record when he was in the senate for so many years of working across the aisle with republicans and working productively republicans. Now some might say that. Joe biden is suffering from naive radio. That washington has changed. That things have become much more polarized on they have in the last decade or so so he for example has has quietly hinted at his relationship with mitch. Mcconnell mitch. mcconnell is more more than likely going to be leading. i'm the two men have worked together. Particularly joe biden was vice president and mitch mcconnell in the senate and but even still you know. We saw mitch mcconnell reluctance to add call. Joe biden president-elect even though he had had won the election so that is a major at challenge for at for joe biden is going to be handling congress also. The problem facing him is democrats did very badly in november's election in terms of their seats. Both the senate and the house so not to pelosi now coming into a new year coming into a new congress with a much reduced majority and that is going to make things tricky for her. She's going to be tried keeper own party in check and i think a lot of the more left wing elements of the democratic party. Who basically were prepared to put away their differences with the establishment democratic party. If you like to try and defeat. Donald trump i now all gloves off and i think we're going to see this element of the party. The bernie sanders winged. Aoc wing. you know. Really kind of be vocal about what they believe. This joe biden presidency should deliver so i think you know that whole political reality of how washington is going to work with the mats in the house and the senate is going to be a constant challenge for joe biden other tries to govern. We'll chris let's look at the most pressing issues that will face president joe biden which is of course the covid nineteen pandemic now. Obviously there are grounds for optimism. Which is that a vaccine exists but it is going to take a while to get it to everybody. We are still months away from normality returning to the united states. Between now and then is there anything. The president biden will actually realistically be able to do to make an obviously already dreadful situation slightly less dreadful. Well i think he is going to try his damnedest to do that. he has set this or that that we all know now of Essentially a one hundred million doses of the vaccine in his first one hundred days disseminated to the public That's an ambitious goal. Although at the same time it it should be said that this was A goal if you will of the trump administration as well And this was. This was something that was planned. They had essentially bought one hundred million doses for the first quarter But the biggest challenge that we are going to see this In these first one hundred days is really going to be how that is disseminated. How is it gotten through to hospitals. you know and how states and local authorities cooperate with the federal government in order for that dissemination to take place how the army is potentially involved. It is a herculean task to get all of these vaccines out as quickly as joe biden has promised and i think it's going to be interesting because on the one hand you know he is as we you know he's he's still not president until january twentieth much of the work on this has been done by the trump administration At the same time there is you know there is this risk if you will or you could also put it in a positive way. There's an opportunity in that joe biden. I think will very quickly find that. This becomes his pandemic to deal with. And that he will be reckoned with in terms of how he is able to get certain programs underway. That means that his people his entire operation is really going to have to hit the ground running incredibly quickly when they take over in particular because they also have not gotten that much help that much cooperation from the trump administration in the transition. Suzanne joe biden has of course being in the white house during one previous dramatic intervention in the united states economy. When he and barrack obama arrived in the wake of the two thousand eight collapse will he be tempted towards something similar in the current circumstances or preceding more on the assumption that wants the vaccine is taking effect. The us economy will more or less sort itself out. Well it's it's a very good point. Under i mean i think there are lots of parallels here actually to what obama faced obama joe biden back into into a nine and you know even between the election on the inauguration i mean america. I'm particularly america then. The wider world was embroidered the biggest financial crisis in decades. And they have to deal with that. So yes there are a lot of parallels i think joe biden has a proven record on this and they were able to pass the tariff act. They did the the bailout fund for the auto industry hugely complex pieces of legislation. Where a lot of money involved. And that may well be the case. Again i mean the. Us economy at the figures december have been worrying. There has been worst. Jobless figures than had been expected am the signs of recovery. We saw in the late summer. You know really didn't continue as we kind of got into that second. Wave around thanksgiving time so i think the economic consequences. This you know are really not getting. Maybe enough attention here. Obviously so at the figures are overwhelming in terms of the deaths the infection rates and but there's also a huge impact on the economy. And i think we're going to see i. I believe around the world. It's it would probably accentuate this. You know the difference between the house and the have nots. If you like you know the poorer are are people who are have lost. Their jobs are in less secure. And yes we're seeing the stock market. Do very very well throw twenty twenty and a lot of people. You know hoarding cash. Essentially as saving. So these kind of issues i think are going to be front and foremost for joe biden particularly. I mentioned already because of this very strong left wing within his party. They want joe biden. Who who has been pivoting. More to the left economically i think for example compared to say a hillary clinton at the time you know four years ago and i think he has suggested you know with his pick johnny yet and his treasury secretary. She talked about for example. The need to address structural issues economic inequality along racial and gender lines in the united states describing how they are important for the economy to address that. So you know what he's going to do in terms of getting more covert relief. Package is going to be a key element of this first one hundred days in parallel to the huge logistical challenge of getting those vaccinations out trying to encourage people to get vaccinated etc and again. This is all going to depend on his relationship with congress and these are going to be. It's going to be a lot of money involved in this and Republicans in particular in the sandwich have been At loggerheads with democrats out late twenty twenty about the size and scope of a of any rescue package for the american economy and you know commentators ironic air pointing out the national dash went way up under trump a now are we going to start hearing republicans complaining about the national debt. So i think that whole aspect as i say in parallel to the the health issue is going to be a key concern for biden in the first few months presidency. Chris susanne mentioned there a couple of members of president-elect biden's domestic team we should talk about obviously the highest profile member of that domestic team which vice president-elect kamala harris do. You anticipate that she'll be a more visible and obviously engaged vice president than usual because it's going to be a very different relationship. Between her and president biden vice president biden had with president barrack. Obama perhaps ironically as things have turned out biden. wasn't really seen as a natural apprentice. successor To the much younger president he was he was running alongside whereas you already. Since there's a a feeling gathering kamla harris's president in waiting. Well i think To continue the two thousand two thousand nine parallels in in some ways. This is a sort of the reverse of that. As as you're discussing. Because i think when joe biden came into office as vice president he sort of provided the experienced the heft to the to the obama administration as the time as the sort of political establishment candidate for you know a relative neophyte in barack obama at the time and so his role You know he was. Obviously you also had before that dick. Cheney famously is maybe the vice president who really transformed the role but joe biden sort of ran with that and he was this You know incredibly powerful Very involved vice president as involved if not more involved than dick. Cheney was as vice president you know before that vice presidency often was seen as this very unimportant role and so i think in that sense perhaps looking now to kamala harris In some ways there's a reverse there because she is not the one providing the heft if you will joe biden is now even more experienced than he was back then so he will be the the fully experienced leader if you will in this campaign In this in this white house And so the question will be in that sense. What kind of room. He is willing to give kamala harris. What exactly she is going to put her stamp on In terms of us. And i think that's still a bit of an open debate. He obviously picked kamala harris because they have a good working relationship. She is somebody who was Arguably more of a centrist than some of the other candidates that he could have picked. You know she's not from the bernie sanders wing of the party. I think that was important because in wanted to pick somebody not only who was historic in terms of being a woman. I african american as well in the vice presidency But really somebody that he could have a good working relationship with in order to use her as both a trusted adviser and entrust her with leading on certain issues. So i think it will be very interesting to see how that relationship plays out and finally as you say as one point he obviously has not expressly said it but many would assume. There's a very good chance that joe biden will be a one term president and so in that sense. Yes this is. Come a harris's chance to really show that she is the one who will take up the mantle of being the leader of the democratic party of the future christchurch. Mac thank you for the moment.

Number two Rashaan Right well, Boeing's 737 Max is returned to commercial service in the U. S, where the first flight since two deadly crashes did actually from the longest aircraft grounding in the country's history. 77 Max, operated by American Airlines landed that LaGuardia Airport slightly early from Miami. That's now get over to Justin Blackmon, Bloombergus senior aviation border and dump. Doesn't given how long this thing's plane was actually grounded on top of that all the scrutiny and I'm just talking about in the U. S. But globally speaking this airline sorry this aircraft should technically but one would have thought be one of the safest in the sky. One would think that correct and I think a lot of passengers are presuming that as well, given that American told us today that they're not seeing any different patterns with booking of the Max versus the other aircraft in their fleet, so it seems that people at least for now during the holiday travel period are all ready to fly on this airplane. I know that the stock really didn't do much today. I think it was essentially flat. Is it that investors see that there's just they've got such a huge number of planes are inactive and a lot of these buyers have have have Paid upfront cash for them. That is going to be difficult for Boeing to get cash flow to be negative for a few years. It will be difficult financially for Boeing, given that the Max has cost a lot in terms of what they've had to pay out to customers and the fact that they have not Unable to deliver. There's also been a slow down in their in their top selling widebody the 77 is well, but the bigger issue for Boeing and every other aviation related company is this global pandemic and the fact that It is just completely decimated. Normal air traffic. So the max history is Very critical for Boeing and its financial future. But in terms of the customers and blowing itself, the pandemic is what really needs to be sorted to make them whole. I guess the question has to be also just in here. Is it well at the moment, I suppose, is the worst over for the likes of Boeing and Airbus. Well, I think it remains to be seen. We've got to see in 2021. What the status of vaccine distribution. The vaccine take right and sort of How this virus spread is controlled in terms of right now, in a lot of places in the U. S and Europe. It's just, you know, it remains a torrid pace of Clearly not under control, and I think that is what's going to weigh on Boeing and airlines all around the world in terms of what happens for next year. The Max is kind of a workhorse on I'm so interested in. You know what sort of percentage is the max for? A lot of airlines Enough for American is quite high. And also just as an offshoot of this Mr Big Story for the U. S today, the max getting back up, but it has been flying around the rest of the world. For what? Three or four weeks. Something like that. Right? Yeah. The Max began its resume service in Brazil and then shortly thereafter in Mexico with Aeromexico, so that the U. S is the third country where it's returned. And I think you're seeing a bit slower, paced in places like India and Asia and China as far as as regulators who are taking a little bit more of a A slower, more methodical approach to win. They're going to allow it..

Biden, Harris are Time's 2020 'Person of the Year'
"Go from here. That's the colossal question. Before president-elect joe biden who was named times person of the year along with vice president elect kamala harris. He's not the first person of the year to be tasked with the future of america. Almost every u s president since the franchise began in nineteen twenty. Eight has been named person of the year at least once excluding calvin coolidge. Herbert hoover and gerald ford but biden is likely the first in a generation to inherit such a crescendo of course trophies.

His thoughts on pardons and more here are excerpts. From biden's interview edited for clarity on restoring america's middle class if my plan is able to be implemented whole plan.

It's important that we focus on the things that provide opportunity pardoning donald trump. my justice department will make decisions based on the facts there. The people's lawyers. They're not my lawyers. I'm never going to pick up the phone. And say pardon so. And so or go out and prosecute so. And so. But i lived through gerald ford's pardoning of richard nixon. I think that the law and the circumstance should take its effect. I'm not suggesting. Trumpy prosecuted. Or not. But i would not be engaged in that prematurely. How the pandemic has changed him and us. What's been reinforced is my absolute commitment. That everyone is entitled to health care. It's not about whether or not it's a privilege it's a right. We're the only country in the world that has come out of every crisis stronger than we went into the crisis. I predict we will come out of this crisis stronger than when we went in finding vaccine. Hesitancy the words of a president matter. Whether they're good. Presidents are bad. They matter i joined the three presidents who said they would be publicly vaccinated because i think people will realize that we have to reinstate confidence that science is real if someone with the reputation of anthony fauci and the leading scientists of the country said this vaccine works they should take choosing kamala harris.

The International Reaction To Joe Biden's Win
"Farm minister who has now tweeted. Congratulations joe biden. On your spectacular. Victory joined with other nations. Latest around the world congratulating congratulate and on behalf of new zealand. Vicky nice including lights. I want to congratulate president-elect buydell and vice president-elect harris. us allies around. The world have moved quickly to congratulate president. Joe biden vice president-elect kamala harris on their win even as president trump still refuses to concede the election for countries like canada france and germany. Biden's victory could signal a return to cooperation on alliances like nato and treaties including the paris climate agreement but the prospect of a biden administration seems less promising to more authoritarian leaders with whom president trump ford strong relationships during his time in office including north korea's leader kim jong un brazilian president jair bolsonaro chinese president. Xi jinping who so far have all refrained from publicly congratulating biden and harris. Joining me now is yes means. Sirhan london base staff writer at the atlantic. Thanks for joining us again. As mean thanks for having me also with us. Clouds ladas professor of history and international affairs at the university of north carolina. chapel hill. Klaus good to have you with us. Thank you hello. How are you doing all right. We are in very interesting political moment right now. The president trump has refused to concede and yet president-elect biden is moving forward and the world is noticing clouds. How would you describe the scope. So far of the international reaction to biden's victory well on the whole thing that has been a lot of rejoicing a lot of applause for biden. I think people are hugely relieved that the trump administration will not have a second term and most people are most leaders in in europe and asia and of people in that country's overjoyed. I six they were really getting fed up for the trump administration. It was too dramatic too. Chaotic to unpredictable and people are relieved to see a new administration. I cost you said the administration was dramatic and unpredictable. And i think many americans would agree with you but it continues to be dramatic and somewhat unpredictable. Given the fact that the trump administration is now calling for recounts and investigations into what they allege voter. Inconsistencies are world leaders looking at that and saying anything about that. The fact that they're still Has not been a concession from president trump. Well del shaking their hands. Most of them are shaking the hats but the key for that sorts to themselves because it is no point to interfere in businesses seen as domestic american politics very few people at least very few democratic leaders have any understanding for what is going on in washington. It seems to be pretty obvious that the was of a free and walls not done in a fraudulent way at all and over. Four million people can vote for biden Rather than for trump's majority will lots of for millions of popular vote. He won miss. Four million people and the people have accepted. That biden is president-elect. And booby the new president but they are. You know wondering what's going on in washington but hardly anyone is actually surprised. At the trump administration would embark on such a course of action because that fits in with what is administration was like chaotic dramatic unpredictable and quite irrational to some extent mean given what klaus just laid out there in terms of the continued reaction to the world leaders at least us allies. Saying you know okay. We'll watch what's happening and see how this all plays out. How much of the reaction you think is excitement about biden himself versus relief about removing president trump from office. It's a great question. I mean it's worth noting An and i thought can of clauses overview spot on that you know for a lot of world biden is a very familiar character He certainly not new to the world stage. I think it was in. Benjamin netanyahu the israeli prime ministers congratulations that he noted that he's known biden for forty years. And i think a lot of world leaders know biden. So it's i. I think probably if i had to guess my assessment would be that it's probably the latter. I think a lot of i think a lot of the protests you are seeing in the us in the days after the result was finally announced was probably fell at least to me is an american observing from afar like a lot more relief than necessarily you know excitement. This isn't to say that you know. Folks don't like biden or unexcited to see him at the helm on his set a recognizable figure. But i think the world generally kind of just took a big sigh of relief that you know here returns a. Us option that recognizes. The us is traditional role in the world and will hopefully be kind of retaking that spot on the international stage. And yasmin. you are in london. Where prime minister. Boris johnson has had a strong relationship with president trump. How do you think this relationship between the us and the uk will evolve under a biden administration. It's a really good question. There's certainly been a lot of chatter about that very thing here kind of leading up to the us election and now after that we knew the result i think there is some conjecture that you know obviously as you just said President trump and prime minister. Johnson had a pretty good relationship. I think a lot of that stemmed from the fact that president trump was quite a big supporter of brexit. And you know. I think kind of quite appreciated the sort of comparisons between him and johnson superficial is some of the may be particularly. I think he quite liked references to johnson. As britain trump some remembering correctly and there has been some talk about some potential tensions between biden administration and johnson's downing street. I'm particularly with regard to brexit. Biden has been very clear about his support for the good friday agreement and opposing anything that would undermine it. And i think there's also some talk about how you know johnson before he was prime minister had made some comments with regard to president obama's support for britain staying in the eu. Where i think he made comments about obama's kenyan ancestry in how he had an ancestral dislike of the british empire so these are no doubt comments that administration would probably remember well. But i think it's worth noting that you know. These are things. I do not think are going to shake up the uk us relationship. In a major way. I think there's a lot more that And biden share particularly with regard to issues like climate change like the iran deal and. Yeah i mean. I think more broadly i would expect pretty good. Relations between the us and the uk going forward While it's certainly true. That trump and johnson had had a decent relationship I think you know the uk is is certainly a country that would see its relationship with the us being important irrespective of who's empower claus does not same theory hold true for other. You leaders like angela. Merkel for example and wilma call who themselves had troubled relationships with president trump. And who i can imagine so far are somewhat relieved to see this New administration elect. Yeah the But regarding johnson outside that johnson dossier a little insecure. He was the first international leader. I believe who fold up biden and congratulate him. They said i think that shows the level of insecurity and also abidance irish background. Bill make him wonder how. how how much you consult poured onto the united states in the future and the united vendor the united kingdom needs a trade. Deal the us. And i think he is for it. You know i think he would probably have seen a second trump administration as being more helpful regarding angela merkel and other european leaders. They certainly were relieved. Undiplomatic led a very bad relationship with trump or with raza. Put it the other way. Round a macro tried in various locations to make overtures to trump it was trump really rejected it who couldn't really in the end stand. Angela merkel nothing kid. He had a problem with female leaders. You had the problem as lead us. Who voted much more open to immigration and to do something about asylum people who were looking for asylum in their countries and he could understand and he also criticised the eu including germany for its huge trade deficit of us united states or rather to the united states of course had trade deficit busy you and he almost criticized the eu and it's trade policies. As much as he did china he called the eu. Actually a foe. Which is you know really surprising that you consider your most longest standing allies in the world that you suddenly regard them. As foes at least in trade relations. So underline michael and the german establishment as well as the french and other foreign policies tablets in europe are usually relieved that they see the end of the trump administration and us yes-men just that biden has a very good reputation. He is regarded to be quite honest as perhaps a little too old for the job but on the other hand is a centrist is not extreme is on the last notes of right people know him they a appreciate his his personality is a people person you some would say. Here's a backslapping sort of politician but much more extrovert much. More outgoing and much more ready to compromise than Trump was so all that shouting at nato summits or g seven summits all that Very bad atmosphere attention. The you know the almost talk about to break up of nato and talk about that trump wanted to undermine the quesion of political union of the european union all that will be a thing of the past because by and his administration can be expected to be very constructive to what nate to enter to you however having said that may the last sort biden will also insist on the european spending more money on their defense efforts so he will not be softer regarding nate and regarding the defense efforts of the europeans and here europe really needs to do something because that is an old complaint which goes back to the obama administration and before that wasn't actually unique to the trump administration. And the you know that they are very reluctant to spend more on defense. But i think a practice the president biden will actually be more successful in persuading them at. That would be the right thing to do as you mentioned. Joe biden's age. And i think that that's something that we must talk about because if something happens to joe biden we could be looking at a president kamala harris. And i'm wondering this is something that came up yesterday in our conversation about The role that black women played in american democracy in electing joe biden. We've seen kamala harris the first woman of color to ever sit in that role that i wonder how she will be received by world leaders. Yasmine your thoughts on that yet. It's a good question. I mean i think you know. Obviously that history-making of of her being elected the first female of vice president of colors obviously huge certainly noteworthy among a lot of the congratulations. that were received. I think it was prime minister. Narendra modi of india who actually dedicated an entire tweet just tacoma harris herself And i think the reason for that is is obvious. Obviously her indian heritage. He he sees that is is an opportunity to further strengthen the relationship between india and the us. but yeah. i mean. I don't know i would anticipate We as you say. Given president-elect biden's age that kamala harris could have a more hands on role than previous vice presidents that we've seen In in for that reason we may find that world leaders will quickly get to know come harris in a way that perhaps they didn't get to know vice presidents of the past and it seems just based on the comments that we've seen uncle mirko also an a made a comment about looking forward to meeting a kamala harris that we could expect that you know the world will be paying attention to both of them very much. Not just biden klaus What's been the reaction From china and president xi jinping so far there hasn't been much of a reaction. Xi jinping has kept quiet. We don't quite know why this speculation that perhaps xi jinping want antagonize the trump administration while it is still in office. The course and ten weeks you can do a lot of arm. And he knows that relations between china and the united states are difficult as they are that will continue to be difficult under the biden administration. So he's keeping a low profile on the social media in china have however been lots of comments. Some people really regretful that Trump is leaving because it made the united states weaker. It created a vacuum in international affairs which was appreciated by some observers in china as us believe you know it is much better to have a more stable more predictable government even if that government is perhaps more strategic in its relations with china. But they appreciate that proper possible predictability and international affairs so essentially. It's difficult to say what the leadership actually things and we will have to wait until eventually shipping and The foreign ministry in beijing will come out with a statement but they will do so nothing at the latest one set to mastic insecurity about the election. Outcome has been resolved than they of course will congratulate her joe biden and kabila harris now of course Clouds one country that we know has been watching the disarray In the united states or at least the tension in the united states has been russia. What have we heard if anything from vladimir putin and or his administration so far the gun russia's keeping a low profile putin hasn't congratulated i them and He is keeping quiet. Does not much coming out of russia but the they of course are disappointed. That trump did not win the second term. And there's been talk about disinformation campaigns. Not quite as much as two sixteen but russia did its bid to perhaps enable second trump victory and trump. However the to be quite. Frank hasn't been soft on russia. The administration perhaps not the president. Personally who always had such soft spot for putin and very confidential talks with him and no one really knows. What when on doing these talks but when you look at his policy his administration's policies towards a russia that wasn't soft all imposed over forty times a new sanctions on russia. So he the administration actually hasn't been soft on putin. But i believe that russia fears of fields that the unpredictability and the chaos and the. Let's say less focused way. of the trump administration than what could you can normally expect from an american administration that that in the end helped a russia that often the president Closed both ice and that influenced also of foreign policy. Make us in his administration like the state department. Yes maine another Interesting figure here is israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who has been a very close ally of president trump And that even translated into votes here. In the united states for the president from certain jewish orthodox communities. He congratulated joe biden and comma harris this past weekend. What do you expect to see from. Benjamin netanyahu in the near term when it comes to us. Israeli relations under a joe biden. I think this is something. That doesn't just apply to benjamin netanyahu but leeds had good relationships with president trump. I think narendra modi also falls into this category. And even figures like victor or bonham road regurgitate both of whom have also congratulated President elected biden But you know. I think he's a netanyahu in particular is a leader who obviously has a vested interest in maintaining a good. Us israel relationship irrespective of. Who's in the white house. It's no secret that obviously he benefited quite a lot. From having president trump in the white house the the moving of the us embassy to jerusalem being obviously one of those Kind of hallmark examples of a win for him That said He obviously you know. He recognizes that an admin the administration is changing. And i think he wants to shore up that relationship. But you know there's it it's been reported That the trump administration is hoping to kind of work with the israelis to sort of applies more punitive measures on tehran. Before trump leaves the white house in the form of sanctions to kind of make it more difficult for biden to return to the iran nuclear deal and try to bring that back it. This isn't to say that. Netanyahu and biden would necessarily see eye to eye on a lot of things i think we would probably see under a biden administration a return to the bit of the more traditional tone that we've known the us to take these israel Opposition to settlement expansion. That sort of thing support for a two state solution but indeed it will not be as rosy of friendship As we've seen between that and your home trump that's for sure we should also note that President trump's administration was also very close with bolsonaro of brazil. Both are considered to have really supported Populist movements and i'm wondering whether or not Desirable not who's also refrained from Congratulating harrison biden on their win and other populist movements across the world are looking at this and saying well maybe this is signals a change. Here i think it's definitely a loss for them. It's a setback. Because you know. I think particularly for leaders like bolsonaro. Who really sort of you know played on his relationship with president trump domestically I think this is a loss because you know even before particularly with populist movements even in places on like brazil where they aren't in power they could turn and look to president trump until their supporters. Look you know he's able to achieve this in the united states so we can achieve at here if know the greatest the most powerful leader in the world can do this that we can do this where we are so without question. I think it's it's a setback for them They lose that. You know that key ally in the white house But that said i think you know populous leaders like minded leaders to trump. Who could potentially take that narrative and sort of utilize it in their favor so While it is a loss for them. I don't necessarily think that it will end. Sort of their relationship trump or or will end them using trump is sort of an example to their benefit. Yes means seer. Han is a london.

This is a Bloomberg radio Special report on the 2020 election. I'm Amy Morris and I'm Nathan Hager were bringing you highlights of Bloomberg's coverage of the announcement that Joe Biden defeated incumbent President Trump Bloomberg's David Westin spoke with Bloomberg contributor. Jeannie's A know about Kamala Harris becoming the vice president of the United States. She makes history here. The first woman, the first woman of color, the first person of Asian descent. To, you know, for women, in particular for African Americans to break this glass ceiling in the United States is historic. And as you and Kevin were just talking about this is a moment for all Americans, not just Democrats. Certainly to take a step back and think about what that means not just for her personally, but for all Americans, and for women who make up, you know the largest percentage of the larger percent that men in this country and have not been at this level in terms of leadership in the United States. And certainly you know, Kamala Harris has talked about frequently. How many shoulders of great women she stands on. As she moves forward to this moment in history, and you know the most recent, perhaps being You know a Hillary Clinton who ran and had to concede in 2016 in a moment that was devastating for not just Democrats, but many women around the country and so I think we're going to hear more about this from Kamala Harris in the coming days, but certainly it's a moment we should all stop and make no Doug. As you know, we have just lived through. Not that long ago, a moment in history where women have been, you know, making great strides in Congress and once again this year, making great strides at the state and local level in terms of running and winning and unprecedented numbers, and here finally we have the first woman to break through at this level, quite historic, and we're talking a lot about And thinking about Jenny. I want to correct myself. Not correct. You could correct myself cause I think it's important. I referred to Carla Harris is the first African American woman. In fact, she was the first black woman her father was Jamaican. Not of African origin and also the first Indian because her mother was from India, Of course, the first black and Indian American woman to be vice president. So it's important to draw that distinction. Jean I want to take advantage of your expertise as a political science professor now. On, obviously were to spend the next days and weeks thinking about transition who would be part of the Cabinet. What sort of initiatives would be in the 1st 100 days? We'll talk about all of those things. But there's been some speculation that given his age, we might have one term of the president by not to If someone goes into that office thinking, I've got four years instead of thinking I'm running for a second term and get second eight. How might change the way one governs because I know you're a student of your book coming out on governing. It's not easy to govern this country right now. Certainly not easy, and this was something that was raised repeatedly. We remember throughout the election about to, you know, then candidate Biden and now president elect about whether he was running and would just promise to serve one term or whether he was going to be a candidate again if he was to win, And certainly this is something given his age that we all have to think about and he had to think about and I do think it has an impact on how you govern. Now, as far as I know, he has not said that he would not seek another term if he won, But I do think the possibility is there that he would not, and I think it does impact how you govern, and this is somebody who knows Washington well served as vice president for two terms was in the Senate as you've been talking about. For many decades and understands the importance of using the first the honeymoon period if we still have one anymore, the 1st 100 days and the first year or two Because that's when historically you're able to do the things that you promised to do in our important to get done, and certainly if he decides not to run again, the window does close very, very quickly before you become a lame duck president in this country, and so we're going to be looking specifically at what policies he's pursuing. In that 1st 100 days, and I think at the top of the list is going to be a stimulus package and trying to shore up not only the United States in terms of, you know, battling this pandemic. But the economic problems that has ensued since we had the force shut down, so I think that's at the top of his agenda. But he's got a long agenda. And he may and is likely going to be battling with a Republican Senate as he tried to move forward on this A Zeiss, eh? You're focusing on governing the country. Is it possible for President elect by to govern this country right now, given where we are, you know, we all certainly hope so. If anybody has, you know the background to do this. It is Vice President Biden. We're coming off a president who had never run for office before in President Trump, who assumes the presidency four years ago. We are now going to have a president who has spent a lot of time not just in the White House but also in Congress. So he understands what he is facing. He understands probably better equipped than anybody to deal with what the head but it is not going to be easy because we have to remember he's not only facing likely again a decided government in terms of a Republican controlled Senate. And he needs the Senate to move forward on these policy initiatives..

"Report on the 2020 election. I'm Nathan Hager and I'm Amy Morris. We're bringing you highlights of Bloomberg's coverage of the announcement that Joe Biden defeated incumbent President Trump Bloomberg's David West and spoke with great value chief U. S policy strategist at a GF investments on the future of White House policy. Greg We heard from Secretary Panetta saying We need to start With Ah stimulus package with a jobs package. We have to have something bipartisan. Is that realistic to get something bipartisan right out of the gate? Yes, I think it is David. I think that's Joe Biden and Mitch McConnell have had a long relationship over the decades. They understand each other, they both pride themselves and their ability to get deals done. So I think we can get something. I can't tell you exactly the date or the dollar sign. But I think we'll get a stimulus bill by early 2021. Well, that's what apartment question any prospect for the lame duck. Or should we just wait? You if? In fact if you were Joe Biden President Joe Biden, would you press for something lame duck? Would you say? Let me wait until I get an office. He may press for something in a lame duck. You can't rule that out. But you know the economy showed some decent signs of life. On Friday, the unemployment number was a pleasant surprise. He may wait and there's another complicating factor. That, of course, is the run offs and Georgia on January 5th. So maybe he won't wait to see what the Senate will look like for the full year. It's a very good point. We have to remember that we don't know about control the Senate. Obviously, the Democrats have to win. Both of those run off, I think is a practical matter for them to get to 50 50 and then break the tie with a vice president elect Kamala Harris. There's one other thing pending before. There's any transition of government come January, and that is funding the government. Given where we are in this election right now, Greg, is that easier or harder? How does that come out? I think there's a widespread consensus that they'll do it in a so called on of a spending bill. They do this most every year. They just throw everything into one big grab bag. You usually in December mid December, but I think there's a good chance that we will avoid any talk of a government shutdown or spending crisis. Okay, So what are you most looking at? In terms of the transition, Greg? What of the indicators to you of how this new administration will govern? Well, I think the thie nominations for Cabinet secretaries will be really, really interesting. I would guess by Right after Thanksgiving. We'll start having names leaked out if if Joe Biden decides to move left on, let's say Elizabeth Warren in his cap it that would perhaps be unnerve ing on Capitol Hill. If he looks at a more respected centrists like Leia Brenner, the Fed governor. I think she would be widely acceptable to both parties, so we'll get some clues fairly early has whether this will be a centrist. Government or whether this will be a leftist government. I think it's the former Greg is it gives us a sense for business right now. Is this the result in this election? Do you think it's overall good for business? Bad services? Or does it depend on what part of business we're talking about? Two Very big positives for business in General David number one, I think a sense of stability, no surprises, no blindsiding, things will get telegraphed in advance. I think that's a good thing for business confidence. Secondly, and more importantly, I think the chances of any significant tax hikes have diminished greatly with Mitch McConnell and control of the Senate. There won't be any big tax hikes, and that's a good story for business. By the way, Great. It strikes me that one of the businesses big concern is covert 19. We've been so focused, understandable in the election. We tend to forget covert 19, which is out there and seems to be coming back will have been well over 100,000 new cases a day in the United States. Can we expect a significant difference in the approach to how we deal with this pandemic from abide administration and what would it look like? Absolutely, I think first and foremost, uh, the by the administration will bring back Dr Fauci from Siberia or wherever he's been exiled to in the last couple of months. I think how she once again becomes the dominant player on health policy. I don't see it by the administration closing down the country. I think that would be putas too drastic and unworkable. But I do see a lot of pretty tough new standards on wearing masks, social distancing, I think, but I think Douchey will call the shots that's great value, Chief U.

"Him on Sundays, he would go to church and visit his son Bo's grave before he campaigned for the day. So that's the personal thing on Biden side. The personal thing on Vice President elect Kamala Harris aside, that really jumped out to me. Was when she said, I will be the first woman to serve as vice president. But I will not be the last when AH, when I interviewed her last year, I asked her about the fact that at every event she would take time. To talk to young girls who came to campaign with her really spend time with him, You know, sit down. I know I talk to them for minutes at a time, and I asked what her message was, and she would say something that she's often quoted that her mother would drill into her. Camilla. You may be the first to do something, Make sure you're not the last. Throughout her career. She has broken barriers as the first woman, the first person of color A whole different offices, and now that culminates as the first woman ever elected president or vice president. So for her to say that on that stage and to say forever girl watching, this is a country of possibilities. I think that was really striking to a lot of people. I'd like to go. I'm going to ask the rest of our panel of colleagues to stand by while I go to another guest. We're pleased to have with us, Uh, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, former competitors.

But what I saw the president elect is not wasting any time. He's already commencing What he those will be a big part of his presidency, which is unifying this country. I saw the Extraordinary words of outreach to those who, uh, who voted the other way You saw the way he talked about where country needs to go and how we need to get there together. And I think, even in the Expression of that faith that is clearly so central to who he is, but I think also won four way he could find common ground and reach out to a different America. Those extraordinary not only on the policy stuff. It strikes me that he was, you know, immediately, uh, thinking about how, even in the transition phase, he's going to structure and organized power. The team that's going to help you get ahead of covert and in his presidency and this pandemic, but also beyond the policy work just Ah, very broad.

And make it clear why she will be such a great governing partner to president. But I have one more question for you before I hand you over to my colleague Steve. Steve Inskeep. Is there anything you worry about? When you think about what President elect Joe Biden is about to face I mean, on the one hand on the one hand, of course, that was a remarkable showing by the American people, You know, record turnout for both parties and you know, it has to be said. What narrower numbers in the House of Representatives and the Senate, so they're still hanging in the balance. Is there anything that concerns you about what it is that he's facing? Well concerns me.

We know it's possible to get those votes, so we had to run off to run offs in January. If the Democrats follow the lead of Stacey Abrams. It's possible that we could not we could get. We could win two additional Senate seats out of Georgia in making it would be a 50 50. Not split in the Senate, who would break that tie our vice president elect Kamala Harris, So that is a possibility. And I don't want us to just, you know be, you know, giving up about that possibility, because I think it's very, very real path for us. But the question really brings up governance. We have got to see a very strong and aggressive 100 Day plan to directly address the pain that we're facing under coded in the economic crisis. We want to see a directly addressing the challenge to democracy that Trump represents. And we have to have a direct addressing of the rise of white nationalism, which we're seeing in the streets even right now and those 100 days things to be aggressive that way. Finally, I think when we look at the administration, the incoming administration needs to look like America needs to look as diverse as our communities and we're going to be pushing hard for that because we believe that won't be able to effectively govern or have a governing agenda that will continue to inspire us and win additional elections. Without that. Let me go to John in Foster City High, John Hi. Good morning. And thank you all so much for this program and based on President Trump's history with the truth, Why were we shocked? And more important? Why? As a democratic society have we allowed politicians and this president ally to America? You and allow our Children or their teachers or employees were people. We do business with delight us every day, and Donald Trump was selling baby food or Children car seats, and he perpetrated these type of lies. Could be shut down a minute because he'd be a clear danger to our society. And so my question is really how did politicians become this unique segment? This unique class? Of our society that can lie, and we actually paid for it with taxpayer dollars for him to get up in the White House and say things that we know are patently. Not just falsehoods. They're flat out. Lied, John. Thanks, Marie. So we're coming up on a break. But do you want to quickly respond to John's point here? I mean, I think that we have seen the media. You know all of us struggle and try to change the way we cover this president. We hadn't seen anything like it. I'm not going to say that. John's not right. This other folks haven't lied. But let's let's be clear. Hundreds of millions of Americans voted for Trump. It is a challenge. It is a challenge to do this. To call him out. I think we've gotten a lot better. I mean, yesterday during that just jaw dropping news conference. NPR and many other networks just cut away from the president because he was lying, and I think we're Taking us for years, but we might be getting a little better at this. Teresa Lagos.
