"chancellor party" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio

"We still don't know exactly all of that story, it said. James Schlesinger, the defense secretary, told the joint chat. Geez, don't do anything unless you hear from me, but Schlesinger denied it. It's not written down anywhere. It's just a story. And we've also had reports that something similar seems to have happened to Donald Trump that he is no longer in fact, in command of the nuclear arsenal. Well, these kinds of murky ways of doing things are pretty sinister. So given that, in fact, it seems that the nuclear weapons are bureaucratically controlled on but the president does not have absolute power, no matter what. Let's formalize the bureaucracy and let's have some kind of nuclear of committee. Some Let's make it clear that the president cannot unilaterally at his or her whim. Fire nuclear weap Was which is in fact which, in fact they can't do. Let's make it clear they can't do that. The second thing that I think I would urge is that we need to remove the power from over federal criminal law from political officials that in no peer democracy, does the head of government have control of criminal prosecutions and different countries do it in different ways on in some of the cases it spend it is the product of their multi party system. So in Germany that The equipment of the head of the system to Attorney General for the Criminal Division. That person is appointed by the Minister of Justice who seldom was usually not a member of the chancellor's party and then confirmed by the president of the state With the chance there's nothing to do with it. Other countries have different solutions. Um, we need to find some way to make it so that the next time a president has helpful suggestions about who to prosecute and who, not the person I can't even have this conversation. I can't take this call. I don't answer to you on this matter on DSA, those I think the two highest right profiles is bureaucracy izing nuclear weapons, in theory, as well as in fact, on moving criminal prosecution, away from the President David from has authored two books on the Trump Administration for hypocrisy and True Apocalypse. But that's fascinating In terms of specific proposed changes based on changing reality's pretty dumped, it could actually just see if you have more specifics along those lines. And to that end, maybe to frame your question. One of the questions we've gotten is what additional powers from Congress have to check President's overreach that were contemplated given the evolution of the sometimes called Imperial Presidency s O have a radical suggestion. Maybe Congressman for some of the power it already has. It does have the power over the purse. Which it doesn't seem toe aggressively. Police. I think that would go a long way to go towards the strain in presidential power. Like, for example, the controversy over building the wall Donald Trump should have had the money to do that, yet. He was able to reallocate it. And that was essentially no penalty for that. He took it from one place and he put it, so you know, he put it towards the wall. And so I think Congress there arguably tools they're you know, outside of impeachment in order to constrain the president. And keep him on John. The president isn't the only official that subject to impeachment right. There was some contentious dealings between Congress and some of the president's appointees. But Congress has seen reluctant for obvious reasons. This is what partisan affiliation becomes very important, right the exercise some of the tools that it has in its arsenal in order, so provide oversight of the executive bridge. S so I think if we're gonna have a conversation about what should change, which I think is important. That conversation has to be informed by Congress using the tools that it already has, which it hasn't done in four years. Two years. Yeah, And, you know, I think the Supreme Court has empowered the executive in ways that they might not have, if if the parties were different quickly thinking of the D O D Miss reallocation of the wall funding, Michael, What's what's, uh, What's your wish List on that front, specifically with regard to congressional power as a check. Well, of course, One of the goals is to try to get Congress to stand up as Congress and not merely as the I jump in the political party if it's the same as the president. Took two point furniture made earlier. We all revere federalist, 10 and denunciations of fraction. But within two years, James Madison wrote an article called A Realistic Look at Party. A candid look at parties, which he said, You know, some people think fractions or a bad thing. Well, that's wrong, because they've always been parties and of course he was at that very moment. Organizing a political party and I agree with the both my colleagues who made really wise points about building the reality of parties into the constitutional system, as was done with some of the newer constitutions that the U. S helped create, like Germany, one of the things dealing with Congress's role and presidential power it has to do with emergency powers. There is a bipartisan Sense that the Federal Emergency Powers Act needs to be reformed. Right now, Presidents get to declare an emergency with very little guidance about what an emergency constitutes on when that happens, Presidents have a lot of ability to do things. If they want, ranging from reprogramming money to the wall or seizing the radio stations and things like that, and Congress can stop it if it passes a resolute joint resolution, But the president can veto it. And that actually happened last year For the first time that Congress passed a resolution to override Trump's declaration of emergency power on building the wall. He vetoed it. The Presumptions should shift So that the funding ends, Uh, unless Congress approves at a certain point with with an emergency. There are things like that. They're not extreme and not partisan. And now that you're one of the best things, frankly, is that now that Joe Biden is president. Suddenly, a lot of Republicans are going to discover the flaws in the unitary executive and untrammeled presidential power. And Biden is old school. Enough that he said the other day that he thought reining in the imperial presidency was an important goal of his. No. Maybe that won't last once he actually plants himself behind the desk. But there are this is a moment where things fracture were alliances and allegiances break up while we were on this program, and this is may sound very dated. But at the time that runs on C span, Liz Cheney, the number three Republican in the House of Representatives, came out strongly for impeachment and removal and,.

"The globalist live from London with me Emma Nelson before we get started a quick summary for what else is happening in the news the US president trump has just arrived in India for his first official visit to the country. The German Chancellor Party CD you who suffered its worst defeat in regional elections in the state of Hamburg and fashion designer. Raph Simmons has joined product as co creative director to work alongside. Mitch Prada Stay tuned to Monocle. Twenty four throughout the day for more on these stories but I is Bernie Sanders unstoppable. He secured yet another victory this weekend. In the Nevada caucuses in second place came Joe Biden. Whose team claimed it as a win for campaign. Many fear is going nowhere so all the Democrats poised to take a far left approach to tackling donald trump in this year's race for the White House Politico's senior editor Ryan has been watching the weekend's events and has this summary of what went on it's now Bernie Sanders Democratic primary to lose after racing to a blowout. Win in the Nevada caucuses this weekend. Sanders was said to have a ceiling of thirty percent support in the lodge. Democratic primary field but in the end he repeated his two thousand sixteen vote share of forty six to forty seven percent when he had only Hillary Clinton as competition sanders finished first in every category of voter except for moderates and even then he came second winning twenty two percent his base definitively includes Latinos now in addition to the younger and left wing crowds. That have been his core supporters across every issue except voters. Who had most about foreign policy? Who went with Joe Biden? That's all in the back of finishing top of the field in both New Hampshire and Iowa Nevada exposed Santa's foremen rivals as weak divided and grasping at increasingly tenuous arguments about how they can still win now. The battle is on to see if the moderates can consolidate behind one Bernie alternative. It's not clear they will. They divided among Joe Biden. Who IMPROVED TO SECOND IN NEVADA? P Bridge dropped a third and Mike Bloomberg. Who has the money possibly up to two billion dollars to spend his way to any political storm? Emmy kluber shah appears to be hitting the end of her campaign. She's out of money back in the low single digits where she's been pulling nationally throughout a year. What we can expect next is for Biden to possibly win this week in South Carolina. That's among a heavily. African American Electorate. If that happens Michael Bloomberg's chances will shrink that because Bloomberg got in the race by arguing he would be the Bernie Sleigh In the event of a Biden collapse even tried to cost his pommery as a two person race between him and Sanders but that simply generated a big backlash among other candidates who pummeled him. In last week's debate with Biden stubborn refusal to collapse Bloomberg may simply be helping Santa's march to the nomination by keeping Biden wounded and the non sanders candidates further divided. Elizabeth Warren was supposed to be the candidate. Who Can Bridge? The party's two factions. But she is doing poorly among both her best. Hope may now be an angling to become a powerful treasury secretary in a Santa's administration of rural. It's not clear. If American voters want an angry alternative to president trump. That's what they'd be getting in Sanders but it is clear how president trump would campaign against Santa's by endlessly slamming? His socialist viewpoints. He's doing that already. But it's equally apparent that Bernie Sanders is the best funded non billionaire candidate with the best organization and he's winning the broader coalition. So it's going to be very hard to beat Bernie Sanders now and given his age his recent attack and the way he polarized some voters that's going to make his choice of a vice presidential candidate the most important in at least a generation. Now thanks to Ryan Heat from politico for that listening to that was loose lukens former. Us diplomats now senior partner with CIGNA Global Advisors. Welcome back to the St Louis. Good to see this Monday When you have a lead is decisive is this all we know in the stage where we can begin to seem got the well. No I think it's a little bit early for that. Look the next eight days will be critical. We have the debate tomorrow night. We have election South Carolina on Saturday. And then next. Tuesday's the famous Super Tuesday as of now. Only roughly. Two percent of Democrats have actually voted South Carolina will bump that up a little bit but then next Tuesday at Super Tuesday will be massive opportunity for Democrats to weigh in on this race. And I think it's too early to write off Joe Biden or Michael Bloomberg and certainly Bernie Sanders until we see the results of Super Tuesday. What seemed to have happen? There-there's vern heath mentioned is sanders is getting support from everywhere. I mean looking at Nevada. That is one of the places which probably more accurate accurately reflects the population makeup of the United States. And he did well with everybody and it's hard to beat that isn't his definitely building a broader coalition and he did last time around and then people suspected he would this time but remember as Ryan pointed out that the moderate vote is being split right now between multiple candidates and so while Bernie Sanders is coming out in the lead. If you consolidate it all those moderate votes It'd be a much closer race and Bernie Sanders for not doing quite as well so. This is the BIG DILEMMA FOR THE DEMOCRATS. Now and nobody wants to be the first person to drop out Although really some of them should at this point because they have no viable path to the nomination. Joe Biden's still. Does I think if he does well in South Carolina on Saturday and gets a bump out of that leading into Super Tuesday but as as the racist go on and is Bernie Sanders. If he increasingly win more races it becomes harder and harder for others to catch up. It's very difficult isn't it Ryan? Does that Saunders? Rivals are weak that divided. They don't know how they can either beat Saunders indeed ultimately beat Donald Trump. I it does beg. The question is I mean. They've had four years or three and a bit years to get their act together about this. What is it wrong in the way? What is wrong about the way that the Democrats are holding this competition given the fact that when we look at it for years ago it was just him up against Hillary and it seemed much more straightforward. Well I think some people would argue that. That's the way our democracy works and they're you know the decision for who's going to be. The Democratic candidate is not cooked in some back room by party elders. It's a process in which the voters and the Democratic voters around the country. Get Away in at this point. Clearly Bernie Sanders is appealing to them. Now there's a very good chance. I think that we get to the convention in July and there is no candidate who has reached the fifty percent threshold. Which would then lead to what we call brokered or contested convention At that point then. Those party elders and senior members of the establishment get to weigh in And that could flip the The scales in favor of a more moderate candidate. And I think that's what some of the moderate candidates are hoping for and that's why they're still staying in the race and in the middle of all this Michael Bloomberg is keeping his powder rather dry but he enters the race. Very very very soon and arguments about weakening. The moderate central movement become even louder at that point. Don't they well they do. And he's got incredible resources as as Ryan mentioned and he's just pouring money into this race. He had a terrible performance on the debate. Stage last week. Tomorrow night will be critical for him if he can recover from that and deliver a convincing debate performance. I think that strengthens his position if he has another rough night and the candidates beat up on him and he doesn't respond effectively Then I think it makes it very very hard for him to continue to spend this kind of money on this. It's difficult to sink though How Bloomberg I find it astonishing that is holding back for so long and we'll just sort of helicopter in that to me send out quite quite a lot of the wrong kinds of signals. Do you think the Democrats will will actually like this idea of of the billionaire? Arriving at the last minute well if he emerges as the only alternative to the moderate wing then I think there will be Democrats on the moderate side of the Party. Who embrace that But likewise there will be many Democrats including Young Progressive Bernie supporters. Who will be appalled at the idea of a rich billionaires swooping in and essentially by the election? Let's look a little bit more about Bernie Sanders and his possibilities. As Ryan mentioned. He described him as an angry alternative. There's an awful lot about his age about his health. Having worked for on the inside of American politics. How sustainable is the idea of someone in that condition? Trying to go for the White House. Well I mean look his anger I think is genuinely felt. He's been passionate about some of these issues and wealth inequality in healthcare for many many years. He hasn't been particularly effective senator. He hasn't gotten much accomplished in the Senate In partly because he is so angry unwilling to compromise so the question for the American voters. Do we want a staunch progressive who is unwilling to compromise on his principles If that leads to the possibility that nothing gets done remember. We're still probably going to have a divided government. There's a good chance that the Republicans will maintain control the Senate so IT President Sanders. If he's elected we'll have his hands somewhat tied in what kind of legislation he can push through some people suggesting that already now that it took him out which which hosts drops out of the race or any. Now it is time for the Democrats to just accept. Sundays is going to get there and should should all unite behind him. What is the likelihood of that now? Things very little likelihood of that. I think there's a lot of egos involved here. In each of these candidates thinks that he or she is the only one who can emerge as an effective alternative to Bernie Sanders and they're not inclined to to drop out now. Think after Super Tuesday after next Tuesday march third we will see candidates. Start to drop because at a certain point if you're not winning races you're not gaining delegates. You'RE GONNA run out of money unless you're Bloomberg and at that point you just can't sustain a campaign long-term and then when it comes to the the situation of you know whether Saunders will be able to take on trump in the in in the democratic elections in in the in the presidential elections trump has three very very easy targets at the top doesn't he has Beau Biden. Who well documented what he thinks of him and and an efforts in Ukraine. Then we have saunders with the The heart condition and the anger and then we have Pete Buttigieg shoe by all accounts. Trump will not hold back in in waging a very anti gay campaign in this one. I mean this is not going to be a political fight is going to be highly. Personal is going to be a highly personal. I I worry as just as an American an American voter that this is going to be a very ugly campaign President trump I think is not interested in in debating the issues. He will go after people on a very personal basis. And just as you ve outlined he'll be ready to attack Joe Biden on Ukraine Hilltop Bernie Sanders for being socialists. He's already doing that He's attacking Mike Bloomberg on his height. I mean He. Just there's no. There's nothing off the table with him. Lettuce lukens from CIGNA global advisors many.

"From n._p._r. news it's all things considered i'm ati cornish shapiro congress is back from recess today and according to senate majority leader mitch mcconnell the big topic of discussion at a weekly senate republicans meeting was president trump's plan to raise tariffs on imports from mexico mcconnell told reporters there's not much support for the move just last week trade disputes with mexico and canada seems to be on the cusp of resolution so this new tariff threat surprised many u._s. businesses with supply chains that crossed the border as n._p._r.'s yuki noguchi reports auto parts makers are just one of many industries closely intertwined with mexico that are reeling from what seems like a sudden about-face by the trump administration it's not clear what the latest tariff threats will mean for passage of the president's u._s. mexico canada agreement or u._s. m._c._a. worse mexico might impose its own tariffs on american products we just did not see this coming in wilson is senior vice president of government affairs for the motor equipment manufacturers association she says her industry was relieved last month when the administration lifted tariffs on steel and aluminum for mexico and canada now it's all back in flux president trump has pledged to raise tariffs on all mexican products starting at five percent next week and going up to twenty five percent by tober manufacturers flourish in this country when they have certainty now we're we have a real question about whether that certain certainties even exists wilson says higher tariffs would increase supply costs and raise car prices taken together uncertainty about tariffs have been a drag on the economy including for clothing companies stephen lamar is executive vice president of the american apparel footwear association he was on the phone with white house officials about the trade deal when he heard about the new tariff threat does come as a punch in the efforts of those who are trying to get u._s. m._c._a. approved clothing prices already spiked because of increased tariffs on chinese imports lamar's has tariffs have become too unpredictable it is a surreal and some cases existential crisis that every day or every couple of days these companies come into work and find that though products maybe subject to additional taxes normally businesses have months to adapt the optimize their supply chains down to the last button david french feis president of government relations for the national retail federation calls this tariff engineering a pocket is located what kinds of trimmer attached whether which button or snaps all of these things might enter into the kinds of decisions that go into tariff engineering but when things turn on a dime it's hard to plan take the grocery chain mom's organic market chris miller buys the meats seafood and produce that go on the grocery shelves lot of kado tomatoes veg cucumbers seasons the produce aisle relies heavily unmik imports when the mexican season is in for a lot of these items that is the primary source miller says new tariffs on mexico would drive prices up on imports from other countries to difficult what happens is if the market goes up as a result of the tariffs then in in my experience the canadian market will most likely follow this already happened with frozen fish increased tariffs on chinese fish raised prices everywhere and mom's organic it's a much wider range of goods from mexico so miller isn't sure how consumers might react and what the effect might be on grocery sales you gucci n._p._r. news washington as we've just heard president trump's tariff thread has led to uncertainty across north america u._s. mexico talks are now underway in washington and trump has said high expectations i wanna see security at our border i'm gonna see great trade to see a lot of things happening and that is happening and as you know mexico they wanna meet we joined now by former mexican embassador to the u._s. touro sour khan ambassador welcome to the program now mick mulvaney he's the acting white house chief of staff he's loaded a number of ideas for mexico to kind of stem the flow of migrants and potentially evade these new tariffs and he's talked about mexico securing mexico southern border with guatemala do you think mexico is doing enough there well it depends on what enough means the problem with tariffs of the president announced that he talks about great voted security he talks about stopping more migrants but there's no clear benchmark of what entails if you look at the current mexican government being doing in the first six months of twenty nine thousand nine loan mexico has deported seventy five thousand central american migrants back to undo what the mullahs and the silo and is now hosting approximately eighteen thousand central american migrants who have claimed refugee status waiting for an asylum hearing in a migration hearing in the unite right states who've been sent across the border into mexico on are being hosted by mexico in the meantime so as they approach for mexico look we are already doing what we say look at what we're already doing to you're not going to solve this by policy by ultimatums and tantrums it's not going to move the needle before that i date of tariffs you tweeted yesterday that quote the pain for u._s. consumers and business will only intensify if mexico retaliates as it should with a carousel countervailing duties with tears would you suggest while mexico in two thousand nine when mexico was seeking u._s. compliance with the excess of mexican trucks to view us put in place countervailing duties on everything from apples two pairs to cord which allowed mexico to target districts and states in the united states that were supporting the teamsters in this case that we're the ones Pushing back against Mexican access to trucks, this same mechanism is what was put in place last year. by the previous maximum station in response to president trump's tariffs on stephen aluminum which were eliminated about ten fifteen days ago where two years into the trump administration do you think that president lopez over door is being tough enough you talked about tariffs under a past administration but there are there's a new leader right in mexico and is he being tough enough there are many mexico who would like to see the president is huma much more stronger position vis-a-vis the president i personally i don't i won't speak with mexican government i think that you have to step up and confront someone who is articulating policies in my way or the highway approach but there is a debate going on in mexico fact there was a new poll that was conducted over the weekend twenty four hours after these measures were announced by president trump where fifty seven percent of mexican polled don't agree the president also relative should bend the knee and accept the demands the president trump has put on the table in regards to migration of central americans through mexico on their way to the us finally what's the likelihood of deal the likelihood that president lopez over door can prevent these terrorists from going into place well i think a lot will depend on whether both sides can agree to de link the issues of trading migration and they shouldn't be linked in the first place you're not gonna solve migration via tariffs you're only gonna solve migration by working with what is being the most important paradigm of the u._s. mexico relationship for the past ten fifteen years which is shared responsibility both countries because of the dynamics on all this use of bilateral relationship have to work together whether its confronting organized crime or the scourge of drugs or scarce resources on the border or the issue of undocumented migration to the united states we have to work together to deal with these issues former mexican basseterre to the u._s. arturo sara khan

"chancellor party" Discussed on NPR's Story of the Day

"Today. A congressional committee voted to continue a federal ban on the creation of gene edited babies in the United States. This comes amid an intense debate about whether the ban is blocking valuable medical research and NPR health correspondent rob Stein is in the studio now to explain Hiram pay their Ari. I explained what the span is your sorry about four years ago, congress quietly imposed a ban that prohibits this ban that prohibits, the food and Drug administration from considering any proposals that involve using genetically modified human embryos to try to make babies. This is what prevents scientists United States from doing what that Chinese. Scientists, did you know making the world's first gene, edited babies and why did this come up today? So most scientists condemn what that Chinese scientists did. But some are unhappy with this band. And the reason is they say it's stifling. What could be really important medical research keen. Editing techniques like crisper could someday be shown to be safe way to prevent lots of genetic disorders, and there's another kind of genetic modification of human embryos that some scientists in the United States would like to. Assu right away. And that involves creating embryos with TNA from three different people, you know, these so-called three parent babies, which are also very controversial. Yes, they are. And the reason is that also involves making changes in DNA that can be passed down for generations, so it raises that prospect of designer babies, but many scientists think researchers should be allowed to pursue it as part of carefully designed studies just to see if it's safe because it could prevent devastating genetic disorders known as mighty Conrail disorders, and the British government is allowing that sort of thing right now. So if that's the background of the debate take us to what's actually happening in congress. Yes. So what happens last month subcommittee of the house of Representative dropped the band from a routine spending Bill and today that legislation came up for full debate on the hill, and it was a pretty emotional debate. Here's a Nita Lowey a democrat from New York, we have a moral obligation to allow advances in science so fewer parents will have to watch child by, but the ban ended up being reinstated after Lowy. And others acquiesce to the arguments of Republicans, like Jeff fort vary of Nebraska, the risks of harm a real, this was just the committee, what happens now does it go to the full house. Yes. Or the advocates for dropping the band say they are continuing to push for that. And they hope he does get pulled when the legislation live station finally hits the floor, but, you know, the chancellor party, probably pretty slim for them, succeeding at this point, that's NPR's rob Stein. Following the debate over gene, edited babies, thanks for your reporting. Rob. You bet. Kara.

"From NPR news. It's all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Ari Shapiro. Congress is back from recess today and according to Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell. The big topic of discussion at a weekly Senate Republicans meeting was President Trump's plan to raise tariffs on imports from Mexico McConnell told reporters, there's not much support for the move just last week trade disputes with Mexico and Canada seems to be on the cusp of resolution. So this new tariff, threat surprised many US businesses with supply chains that crossed the border as NPR's. Yuki Noguchi reports auto parts makers are just one of many industries closely intertwined with Mexico that are reeling from, what seems like a sudden about-face by the Trump administration. It's not clear what the latest tariff threats will mean for passage of the president's US, Mexico, Canada agreement or US, MCA worse, Mexico might impose its own tariffs on American products. We just did not see this coming and Wilson is senior vice president of government affairs for the motor equipped. Manufacturer's association. She says her industry was relieved last month when the administration lifted tariffs on steel and aluminum for Mexico and Canada now. It's all back and flux. President Trump has pledged to raise tariffs on all Mexican products starting at five percent next week and going up to twenty five percent by Tober manufacturers, flourish in this country when they have certainty now we're we have a real question about whether that certainties even exists Wilson says higher tariffs would increase supply costs and raise car prices taken together uncertainty. About tariffs have been a drag on the economy including for clothing companies. Stephen Lamar is executive vice president of the American apparel and footwear association. He was on the phone with White House officials about the trade deal when he heard about the new tariff threat, it does come as a punch in the efforts of those who are trying to get US MCA approved clothing prices already spiked because of increased tariffs on Chinese imports. It's Lamar has tariffs have become too unpredictable. It is a surreal. And some cases, existential crisis that every day or every couple of days. These companies come into work and find that their product may be subject to additional taxes, normally businesses have months to adapt the optimize their supply chains down to the last button, David French, vice president of government relations for the national retail federation calls this tariff, engineering pocket is located what kinds of trimmer attached, whether which button or snaps all of these things might enter into the kinds of decisions that go into tariff engineering, but when things turn on a dime, it's hard to plan, take the grocery chain mom's organic market. Chris Miller buys the needs seafood and produce that go on the grocery shelves avocados tomatoes veg cucumbers seasons. The produce aisle relies heavily on Mexican imports when the Mexican season is in for a lot. These items that is the primary source Miller says new tariffs on Mexico would drive prices up on imports from other countries to typically, what happens is if the market goes up as a result of the tariffs, then in, in my experience, the Canadian market will most likely follow this already happened with frozen fish increased tariffs on Chinese fish raised prices everywhere, and mom's organic, it's a much wider range of goods from Mexico, so Miller isn't sure how consumers might react and what the effect might be on grocery sales. You can Gucci NPR news Washington, as we've just heard President Trump's tariff thread has led to uncertainty across North America US Mexico talks are now underway in Washington. And Trump has said high expectations, I want to see security at our border. I'm going to see great trade. I'm going to see a lot of things happening, and that is happening. And as you know, Mexico, they wanna meet we joined now by former Mexican embassador to the US touro sour con- ambassador. Welcome to the program. Now, Mick Mulvaney. He's the acting White House chief of staff. He's loaded a number of ideas for Mexico to kind of stem, the flow of migrants, and potentially evade these new tariffs, and he's talked about Mexico, securing Mexico's southern border with Guatemala. Do you think Mexico is doing enough there? Well, it depends on what enough means the problem with tariffs of the president announced his that he talks about great abode security. He talks about stopping more migrants. But there's no clear benchmark of what that entails if you look at the current Mexican government has been doing in the first six months of twenty nine thousand nine loan, Mexico has deported seventy five thousand central MAC and migrants. Back to undo does what the mullahs and the silo and is now hosting approximately eighteen thousand Central American migrants, who have claimed refugee status in a waiting for an asylum hearing in a migration hearing in the United. States who've been sent across the border into Mexico on are being hosted by Mexico in the meantime, so as they approach from Mexico. Look, we are already doing what we has to say, look, what we're already doing to you're not going to solve this by policy by ultimate Dems, and tantrums, it's not going to move the needle before that I date of tariffs you tweeted yesterday that quote the pain for US consumers, and business will only intensify if Mexico retaliates, as it should with a carousel of countervailing duties with tears, would you suggest while Mexico in two thousand nine when Mexico was seeking US compliance with the excess of Mexican trucks to view us put in place, countervailing duties on everything from apples, two pairs to corn, which allowed Mexico to target districts and states in the United States that were supporting the Teamsters in this case that were the ones? Pushing back against Mexican access to trucks, this same mechanism is, what was put in place last year by the previous maximum station in response to President Trump's tariffs on steel aluminum, which were eliminated about ten fifteen days ago. Where two years into the Trump administration. Do you think that president Lopez over door is being tough enough? You talked about tariffs under a past administration, but there are there's a new leader right in Mexico and is he being tough enough. There are many in Mexico, who would like to see the president human much more a stronger position. Vis-a-vis the president. I personally I don't I won't speak with Mexican government. I think you have to step up and confront someone who is articulating policies in my way or the highway approach, but there is a debate going on in Mexico. Fact, there was a new poll that was conducted over the weekend. Twenty four hours after these measures were announced by President Trump where fifty seven percent of Mexican polled. Don't agree the president. Also relative should bend the knee and accept the demands. The President Trump has put on the table in regards to migration of central Americans through Mexico on their way to the us. Finally, what? What's the likelihood of a deal the likelihood that president Lopez over door can prevent these terrorists from going into place, while, I think a lot will depend on whether both sides could agree to de link the issues of trading migration and they shouldn't be linked in the first place. You're not gonna solve migration via tariffs. You're only gonna solve migration by working with what is being the most important paradigm of US, Mexico relationship for the past ten fifteen years, which is shared responsibility, both countries because of the dynamics on all this use of bilateral relationship have to work together, whether its confronting organized crime or the scorch of drugs, or scarce resources on the border or the issue of undocumented migration to the United States, we have to work together to deal with these issues. Former Mexican embassador to the US Arturo sour Khan, thank you so much for coming in to speak with us. It's a great pleasure. Thank you for having me.

I explain what the span is already about four years ago, congress quietly imposed a ban that prohibits this ban that prohibits, the food and Drug administration from considering any proposals that involve using genetically modified human embryos to try to make babies. This is what prevents scientists United States from doing what that Chinese. Scientists, did you know making the world's first gene, edited babies and why did this come up today? So most scientists condemn what that Chinese scientists did. But some are unhappy with this band. And the reason is they say it's stifling. What could be really important medical research keen. Editing techniques like crisper could someday be shown to be a safe way to prevent lots of genetic disorders, and there's another kind of genetic modification of human embryos that some scientists in United States. I'd like to pursue right away and that involves creating embryos with TNA from three different people. You know, these so-called three parent babies, which are also very controversial yet. They are.

He would buy stakes in an Austrian newspaper and use it to support the vice chancellor's party. That party would be the far right freedom. Party founded by former Nazis after World War Two until today, it was part of Austria's ruling coalition now. The vice chancellor is out, and so are all the other Freedom Party ministers. I'll tell us more about what this means for Austria. And for Europe, we're joined from Vienna by Valerie Hopkins of the financial times. Hey valerie. Hi, thanks for having me. Glad to have you with us. So layout in assessing to time line as you can. But how did we get from this one, scandalous video to now? Five government officials having to vacate their pros. Wow. Well, this has been one of the most exciting weekends and early weeks in Austria, I think, in its postwar history on Friday night, as everyone's heading home from work, all of a sudden, the social media networks, every renting with news, a news of a leaked video of the vice chancellor, of Austria Heinz, Christian have the far-right Freedom Party and his young, protege in villa, any beats drunk visa being the Spanish island where this video was filmed. Exactly. Just blathering on and on to a Russian woman, who they believed was the niece of a prominent Russian oligarch, and I'll just insert here that I have not had the opportunity to verify exactly what is being documented on this video. But what it has done is raise all these questions in Austria about the extent of Russian influence in Australian politics that, right? Absolutely.

Well, let me insert a practical question here, we're does this leave the government of Austria whose church today? Oh my goodness. The crisis keeps deepening by the day yesterday. Some of the parties called for a vote of no confidence. The chancellor Sebastian courts was hoping that he could get rid of interior minister kinkle, who has also been the center of several scandals himself during the course of the eighteen months that they've been a government, the other ministers of transport defense and labor said, we're gonna leave too, so you're describing all sorts of the behind closed doors machinations going on here, but bottom line, Australia prepares to go to bed tonight. Chancellor Sebastian Kurz is still in. Charge of the government, but he doesn't have much of a government now that his coalition has fallen apart. Exactly, how is this playing as you're out, and about interviewing people on the streets of Vienna? Well in Vienna. People are extremely concerned, although Vienna has a very long history as a social democratic city. It's known in fact as red Vienna. But, you know, the first poll since the scandal came out yesterday and the Freedom Party lost a four to five percent, but they're still pulling at eighteen percent. So their core supporters remained, loyal and support their anti immigrant anti LGBT agenda in this all anybody's talking about. Oh my goodness. You can't avoid it. I mean the cafe on the ground floor of my apartment building has painted up on its windows.
