"Pop tarts You watch strawberry Over 25 NBC ten in Philadelphia reports the lawsuit says the pastry claims to have more strawberries than it really does I'm Scott Carr You're listening to Bloomberg opinion on Bloomberg radio I'm June grosso Negotiations over President Biden's build back better Bill continue to stall And while both outside observers and participants are saying it's time the president cut a deal that is a really possible According to opinion columnist Jonathan Bernstein a president has limited tools to get legislation over the line and simply forcing lawmakers to agree isn't one of them He joins us to explain Every time I turn on the news I hear someone saying President Biden needs to sit down with his own Democrats and work out a solution Cut a deal Is that going to happen Well they seem to be moving towards the deal But there are things that a president can do and things of the president can not do And one of the things that president can not do is to order Joe Manchin or anybody else to agree to something They are independently elected members of the Senate or the House And he's not their boss So there are some ways he can exert influence but it's not as simple as boy if he only tried harder everything would be fine I think what they're hinting at is that he should exert some pressure over the holdout senators or Congress people Well there are things that presidents can do If they for example summon somebody especially in their own party to The White House for meeting That's going to be very difficult for senator to say no I am going to ignore that But once they come to the meeting president can only do so much Maybe there's some kind of an appointment nomination that that senator wants that the president can do Maybe there's some campaign assistance that the president can do But the bottom line is if Joe Manchin doesn't want $3.5 trillion in a bill he's freed not to vote for it There's very little that a president can do to enforce anything Presidents aren't the bosses of members of the Senate It seems like senator Kristen sinema has been at The White House many times to no avail Well we don't really know to what extent it's happening One of the things about all of this is that a president can put a deadline on things Can sort of create an artificial deadline And that may get things moving But at the bottom line is it's artificial And if cinema or mansion or whoever it is wants to take more time isn't there yet There's very little president can do to enforce that artificial deadline other than saying well we're done now We're not going to do the bill President Trump could do that but that's hardly in the president's interests Does it seem as if the Democrats have put themselves under some kind of artificial deadline that they have to get this done now Well I think that it makes sense to generate artificial deadlines of sorts because otherwise they'll wait till the real deadline which is probably next year's elections And you never know what could happen between now and then So it does make sense for The White House It makes sense for congressional leaders to put pressure on and to create deadlines But the problem is that they can't enforce those deadlines So that can generate negative media coverage when they're supposed to be a vote At the end of October and there's not going to be a vote at the end of October or whatever it is So if they do get this past and signed will the Democrats necessarily benefit in the midterms from it It's a great question The general history of these things is no with an asterisk There's no real sign that parties are rewarded for legislative success On the other hand presidential popularity matters a lot in midterms and to the extent that there's negative stories about the president including legislation that didn't pass That would tend overall to hurt the president's popularity But for the most part it actually doesn't seem to have very much to do with it We can think of presidents who had extremely effective legislative results in the first two years And had terrible midterms anyway from Linda Johnson to Barack Obama So there's not a direct correlation there And things like the economy and war and peace that tend to be much more important for the midterms Thanks Jonathan That's Jonathan Bernstein a politics and policy columnist for Bloomberg opinion Let's turn now the global energy sector where the international energy agency claims we are under investing Opinion columnist Liam denning joins us to explain the IEA's latest outlook and how our transition to renewables will be prone to volatility So you think the global energy system might better be thought of as a particularly confused and volatile tween Tell us why Because we are in between two different types of energy systems effectively running the global economy So for the past hundred years or so we've had a fossil fuel modern economy Coal and then increasingly oil and then natural gas they provide the vast majority of the energy We use today Big drawback with those of course is that they emit carbon dioxide which is a greenhouse gas and leads to climate change So increasingly we're trying to shift over various speeds around the world to a decarbonized energy system using more renewable energy trying to be more efficient et cetera And so the issue we have is that those two systems run very differently And in some ways directly oppose one another So if you're in the oil business you're not too jazzed about things like electric vehicles Similarly if you're in the coal business you're not particularly infused about solar And wind power And so we're at this point where and in particularly in the context of the energy crunch that seems to be occurring this winter We're at this point where we're relying on these two systems in tandem essentially pushing towards the point where one is shrinking and the other one is growing But it's very hard to balance the right amount of investment for those two things to make sure that they in a sense hand off smoothly one or the other kind of like a relay racer handing off the baton to the next runner So that's why I think it's like a troubled tween So does that mean that we're going to face more periods of tight or volatile energy markets Yes The international energy agency just released their latest world energy outlook if their annual kind of long range projections and analysis And one of the points they made is that in the context of the current energy crunch there's a certain narrative that says part of the reason we've got tight markets now is because everyone's been talking about green energy and therefore we have an invested enough particularly in natural gas and oil supply We certainly haven't been investing enough over the past few years though I would say that as more to do with the.
Former Georgia Rep. Doug Collins on Trump's Appeal and Biden's Weakness
"Book, Doug Collins is with us former Republican congressman from Georgia on the subject of Donald Trump. This week, a quinnipiac poll came out showing that Donald Trump actually is more popular with registered voters than Joe Biden. One mainstream media outlet said, shock poll. Trump 41% favorability. Biden 40%. The only thing shocking is that anybody thought it was shocking. Yeah, but what do you expect? I mean, this is the media who's been obsessed with this. I mean, they have been in really what I almost say is a catatonic sit almost, except they're not laying prone and abandon where they're out actually screaming all the time since he came down the escalator to start with. Now, whether you know, again, no matter where you came from or where you started, Donald Trump has a way of connecting with the American people that it is still very prevalent in the poll is not shocking. When you have a president such as Joe Biden. I mean, just look at the contrast. President Trump, like I said, no matter what side of the fan she failed on. And for those of us who supported him, he would get, he would engage with the media he would fight back. He would give you his answers whether you liked or not. Joe Biden comes up reads a 7 minute statement. If he's going to take questions while I can't talk to you, or most of the time, though, the picture of this administration is him turning around and walking off without ever answering a question. There's no wonder. By the way, when people go to the gas bombs and at three and $4 gas when they see their shells in their grocery store with nothing on them when they see all of this going on inflation rising and they keep hearing this kind of elitism coming out of this White House. I'm surprised Joe Biden, frankly, you know what the shock pole for me is that it's 40%. No kidding. Yeah, I would think it would be about

"But at the core, are these two women? Yes. And their friendship. And Ellen, who plays a secret is the Secretary of State. You say, is based on your friend senator Ellen tells her who also passed away in 2019. Right. But there must be a bit of view in there as well, Hillary. Well, there certainly are a lot of my experiences and Ellen was a member of Congress and then she was the person in the State Department who had responsibility for nuclear weapons. So she was someone I thought about constantly when we were writing. Like, you know, how would she deal with this? And one of the many things I loved about her is how she knew how to take being underestimated as a woman. And so when she was negotiating with the Russians on our behalf and the Obama administration to get a deal on lowering the number of nuclear weapons, didn't bother her a bit to have somebody say, well, I think let's go get coffee and she said, no, I'll do that. But when I get back, we're gonna make a decision on this. I mean, she knew exactly how to have a very positive attitude toward whatever was thrown at her in the high stakes world of politics and diplomacy. And that is our Ellen in the book as well. You know, she does have incredible composure. The opening scene of the book, which is phenomenal. She's just on her way back. She's flies back and air falls through from North Korea. It's not gone very well. She's covered in mud. She has to get to what is the State of the Union address, but it's not. So she's going to be in full show, TV cameras there. She's covered in mud. Let me just repeat that. Takes her heels off. What I'm struck by is that in a dialog of hers where she says right, I've just got to hold it together. And it just made me think of you Hillary in situations where you have had president Trump looming over you. You've had people chanting lock her up. How do you keep your composure? What do you tell yourself?.

Could Mike Pompeo, Robert O'Brien, Make a Run for POTUS?
"Yeah, David drucker, I am going to moderate a debate of would be senators in ohioans on a night, the 6 Republicans who are running three nights at Senate to replace rob Portman, and I'm reading in Trump shattered or prepare for that debate. They might want to get a hold of a copy themselves if they want to know what I'm thinking about. I think you're going to sell like hotcakes. I can not wait to read this, but I wanted to ask you, I know that two of the profiles in the book are of Robert O'Brien and Mike Pompeo. I was with both of those men last week. I'm curious what your assessment of both of their intentions and odds are showed president Trump not enter the race. And if he should. Well, it's very interesting. Let me start with Mike Pompeo, the former Secretary of State because I spent so much time researching him and reporting on it. He wants to run for president. And in fact, in a podcast interview a couple of weeks ago and it's a companion to my book, so it's also athlete titled in Trump's shadow. I asked secretary Pompeo, if I said I know you're not going to tell me if you're running or not today, I'm not that I'm not that crazy. But I said, if Trump decides to run a third time, does that automatically mean you will not. And he would not say as some have said that that automatically means he would not. He said, look, if you're going to run for president, you need to believe that you have something unique and critical to offer the country at a time in history. He is planning to run and everything he is doing is about planning to run. Robert O'Brien, who I profile less, but did mention is a very interesting figure because he comes from the traditional wing of the party, but he fit in very well with Trump in The White House and was his most successful national security adviser from the perspective of doing the job and not getting crosswise with the commander in chief. Could be a very interesting dark horse candidate as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. He's a Mormon. He comes from the west. There are pockets of Mormon voters in Arizona and Nevada, Idaho, other states where multi candidate primary, you might be able to do some damage. He's also interested in running. I classify him as less interested in Pompeo.

How Private Money From Facebook’s CEO and Wife Altered the 2020 Election
"Doctor William Doyle, welcome to the Mike Gallagher show. I appreciate you joining us. Thank you very much for having me, Mike. My pleasure. You know, I know we want to I don't want to drag you into the political wars that are going on and president Trump is maintaining that the election wasn't legit and everything and there's a lot of anger. There's a lot of frustration. I want to get into the nuts and bolts of what you're study found and I poured through these articles. I think it's a lot of it is the basis of Molly Hemingway's new book, but can you share with us an overview of how Mark Zuckerberg and his wife directed literally hundreds of millions. I think $419 million into communities into areas that Biden really needed and how that plays out. Try to break it down for us in layman's terms for a moment if you will. Okay, let me give it a shot. Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan donated out of their own personal resources, not through that they have a private foundation that they normally would do something like this through, but they went through they use their own private resources. And they funneled those resources into a little sleepy Chicago based nonprofit called the center for technology and civic life. Before 2019, their budget was about $1.8 million a year. And they seem to be engaged in pretty neutral in a tech related election issues. But then in 2020, they experienced this giant inflow of money from Mark Zuckerberg from its personal resources. How giant. It ended up totaling $350 million through that one organization. That $419.5 million figure includes another organization that they invested a lot in called the center for election innovation and research or CEI are. But our main focus is on CTCL because it was up $350 million gift or donation or whatever you want to call it to CTCL that had the most significant impact according to our research on the election

Andy Surabian on 2016 and the Power of Trump's Appeal
"Back with my former White House colleague, special assistant to president Trump Andy Sarah. We've talked about 2016. We've talked about how you got involved in politics. When he talked to us about the last four years plus 9 months, talk to us about the political landscape has the GOP actually internalized what happened in 2016 and where is the stop laughing? And where is the maga movement today, Andy? I think there are aspects of the Republican Party that have internalized why president Trump was so successful and why does appeal was what it was? I don't want to name names because some of these guys, I like and I'm Friends with, but you can certainly see certain senators and congressmen who have kind of alter how they talk, what issues they focus on over the last several years. And there's a reason for that because I think there is an element of the Republican Party that has figured out his appeal and understands it. I also think there's an element a big element, unfortunately, the Republican Party that either a never understood his appeal or even worse be understood as appeal and hated him for it. And those are the Paul ryans of the world who were ideologically opposed to Donald Trump on issues like immigration in trade. I mean, I think Paul Ryan probably understood Trump's appeal, but he just hated
Biden Tries to Tame Supply Chain Crisis by Having Los Angeles Port Open 24/7
"Biden who is finally commenting on the supply chain crisis that is happening of importing products into our country. Now the easy and the simple way to diagnose the supply chain crisis is, we should not import so many products and goods and services from overseas, we need to self sufficiency agenda to make things here. I think that if president Trump would have articulated legislatively and politically, a self sufficiency agenda in 2020 and introduced pieces of legislation to reflect that, saying we want things to come back to America. We want vitamin C, penicillin, PPE products, all we made here in America. That would have been widely popular. So how bad is the cargo ship backup, cut 63? You know, this is both a symbol of success and failure, really, right? It's a sign of a strong economic rebound, but also our failure to plan for it. For instance, you know, paying people not to work with unemployment expanded benefits when we had 537,000 job openings in transportation and warehouses. But the point is, Harris, you know, for Christmas, you may not get what you want when you want it, what you want to pay for it because why? It's out here with me. And so Biden's grand strategies, hey, let's just work 24 hours. Now, I have a very simple and obvious question. You're trying to tell me our ports don't work 24 hours in our country that's an incredible thing to think about. That our ports are already not working 24 hours. Biden says, don't worry I got it solved. We're gonna work around the clock. Yeah, what a genius solution. Cut 59. And today we have an important announcement that will get things you buy to you to the shells faster. After weeks of negotiation and working with my team and with the major union retailers and freight movers, the port of Los Angeles announced today that it's going to be operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The extended hours the administration is touting represents something less than the full around the clock operations that are typical of the world's most advanced cargo moving
Trump's Former War Room Director Andy Surabian on His Path to Politics
"He's former special assistant to president Trump and deputy political strategist. My good body. Andy, sarabia. Welcome back to America first. Thanks so much for having me today, sad. It's been way too long. It has been way too long, but we know you're a busy guy, you're in the background, you're making sure that we get the right maga candidates and that they win and this freight train of America first, not only trounces the Democrats in the midterms next year, but also our old boss will win in 2024. We have so much to discuss. You are a Republican strategist and you are the spokesperson for Donald Trump Jr.. So I just want to get in there that this is what these are the little things that this guy does after he leaves The White House. Hopefully we'll see him back there soon enough. Andy, let's start because we have an unfettered discussion here, say a little bit about yourself. Where do you hail from and how did you get into this? Is my dad used to say politics? It's disgusting, but it's so fascinating. So if your audience isn't able to tell by the accent that I still have to this day, I was born and raised in the very conservative dashkin of Massachusetts or the longtime nickname of tax executives.

First of all, and I love the guy, and I'm a Trump supporter and if he runs in 2024 and I pray he does, he'll win. Joe Rogan is right. Trump's gonna run and he's gonna win.

If you work hand in hand with a political party you are no longer a private company you are in the arena and if you are in the arena will then it's fair game to go after you ask such and that's what president trump was getting at there is still referred to him as the president because i think there are just too many questions surrounding last year's election to say definitively that he was defeated.

"Weight. Well, that's not what I heard from the Obama Biden regime. The wealthy last year benefited from a roaring stock market as they did during the Obama years. Here's where it gets interesting folks. So. Median household income in the US went up dramatically in one year fifty percent more than the eight years of Obama. Here's where it gets interesting. That was only for the rich really. Quote but Lower and middle income folks we're also sharing more in the country's growing well. Notably median household incomes increased more amongst Hispanics seven point one percent blacks point nine percent. Asians ten point, six percent and foreign born workers eight point, five percent versus whites five point, seven percent and native born Americans six point, two percent. One reason is more Americans with lower education levels were working. So just to be clear again if you do data. Data. Stuff. I know you don't liberals but for the same people listening. Before the play kid. The. Trump administration had median household incomes in the United States people who live here in other words had their income growing at rates dramatically higher than they grew the entire eight years of the Obama Administration in one year. Kind of weird how you haven't heard that story, right? or how the greatest income household growth. Was Amongst. Blacks Hispanics non native born Americans Asian Americans. And was actually lower for whites and native born folks. I heard the opposite I heard trump is a racist. He's clearly the worst racist in human history if that's the case. You didn't hear about that stuff. Did You You heard about that in the. Did, Anderson Cooper Aska Joe Biden that last night why their record was so horrible on household wealth household income and minority income wrote that he asked that quite that he didn't write him. Sure. Miss that. Well trump definitely contributed to inequality. Right I mean we've we've been told that. It's so unequal. Now, trump tax cuts for the rich everything was unequal under Obama. There was perfect equality everybody everything you you got a tuna sandwich for lunch. Everyone else they do really is that really what happened is that what the data says data again, facts I know you're allergic to that kind of stuff. Well, let's check this out from the wall journal piece. This'll be fascinating. Let's see what the date actually says. Income inequality. Last year also declined by most measures as the bottom quintile share of the income grew by two point four percent. But he comes across the distribution with many lower earners rising into the middle class, some of whom joined the ranks of the affluent gus. This sounds like a really bad growing income inequality story. It goes on. The sheriff households making less than fifteen thousand dollars a year in inflation adjusted dollars declined to nine point one percent last year from ten point four percent in two thousand sixteen. That's when Obama was in charge lips and eleven point two, percent, twenty ten. Also Mobile. At the same time, the share with the share with us me the share with income between seventy, five, thousand, two, hundred, thousand increased liberals. That means it went up to thirty six point, one percent from thirty thirty, four, point, four percent in two, thousand, Sixteen Obama and thirty two, point eight, two, thousand, ten, also Obama while the percentage earning more than two hundred thousand ticked up again up Mitt means more to ten point, three percent from eight percent in two, thousand, sixteen during Obama and five point nine percent twenty also during about. That is really weird. How income inequality has gotten. Better Under trump and was wore worse under Obama. Data. I get it data as difficult horrible awful thing to you people on the left. But again, I wouldn't mind your attacks if you're attacks were at least honest. Just come out and run a campaign Ed and say what we all know is true. Income inequality grew under Obama president trump fixed it. We're going to go back to growing income inequality Dan. They'd never run an ad like that at least it would be artist. Household wealth and income grew under president trump was stagnant under president. Bob We're going to continue the old stagnation policies. May. Not Be the best there but at least it would be honest. But liberals aren't interested in honesty and they never are. That's why they wake up every morning they look in the mirror and they can't stand themselves and they take their rage out on you because they know they have no information whatsoever backup ridiculous absurd claims. All right because I want to. Get the president trump and a little bit. I got one more story WanNa cover maybe to let me get to my final sponsor a great sponsor of the show they've been here for a long time and really appreciate them helixsleep by needed him last night it was a little worried about getting the questions right for the view today.

That's not what happened president trump during the ABC townhall. which was an actual townhall, not like the kind canterbury contribution the by keeping here's the first question president trump kits and notice the tactic again, the tragic personal story. But then they hit on trump afterwards that never happened by check this out I voted for you in two thousand sixteen I'm conservative pro-life and diabetic. I've had to dodge people who don't care about social distancing and wearing face masks. I. Thought you were doing a good job with a pandemic response until about may first then you took your foot off the gas pedal why did you throw vulnerable people like me under the bus folks? It's not a question however tragic. This gentleman story is it's not a question. Why did you throw vulnerable people like me under the bus? It's not a question that's an attack. Please tell me how that's a question. Why did you one? It assumes what? Joe that he threw the guy under the bus. There's an assumption that standard. When did you stop beating your wife What are you talking about? Totally, totally different treatment. Of these two actors in this presidential campaign president trump and Joe Biden totally different treatment. I just want to be aware of the tactics. Now part three of this and I'm GonNa move on got a lot to cover today. Couldn't president trump coming up in the show please Oh forget stay tuned don't go anywhere What is the media hiding? Why are they giving Joe Biden these in kind contributions y what are they? What's wrong with? Joe Biden. Well, we already know there's seriously it's not a joke, but it is worth considering considering he's running for president all the cognitive decline of Joe Biden is obvious. What are they hiding ladies? Gentlemen? Joe Biden can barely talk without media help. And the help of a sponsor excuse me a teleprompter when it comes to impromptu extemporaneous questions, he needs a teleprompter. He cannot think quickly enough to answer legitimate questions. You don't believe me look at this video. You've probably seen this already, but it's worth considering again here's Joe Biden pretending to take question off the cuff from a union employee. He's doing this town hall with unions via Zoom? Type. Technology and notice what he says before he answers the question check this out to pay specific attention when he first talked what he says, check this out and I would like to know what will year administration do to help them get that chance.

Not sure how this will affect his attitude toward the pandemic, which has been ravaging a Brazil time now to check in with Chris what he's working off. CUOMO, Primetime Chris none of us is a mutant I. mean that's the sad reality the virus is the only constant, and just wait until we find out how long tail this Tornado has I'm telling you I'm still not right. A lot of people have had this virus unless it's a light. Light case and they get lucky, but even my wife She had light case, but then her lack of taste and smell not taste men or lack of sense of taste, and Goop I know what you're thinking, but that just started coming back last week again. We don't know what we don't know about this virus, so we have to take it very seriously, and let's be honest. This country isn't doing it on the levels that matter most so tonight. With the president, saying Hey, schools got open I'm going to pressure them now. We've seen this game before. He did it with reopening. He did it with testing. He did it with P. P I'm GONNA. Make it happen Oh, but it's a state issue same thing with schools, so we're bringing teachers from Florida. Because that's not just the biggest hotspot that tracking with cases they want to reopen schools in like a month just when they're getting their worst in terms of cases, got the head of the Teacher's Union to talk about the realities and what they need to go back to work. All right course the corner that's about five minutes from now see then up next. We remember some of the victims of this pandemic, including a doctor who was on the front lines. Tonight, we remember more lives lost when the coronavirus Stephen, Cooper was a New Yorker who grew up in Queens on the morning, of September eleventh, two, thousand and one, he was making a delivery in lower Manhattan. When the towers were hit, police officer told everyone on the street to run Stephen was captured in this famous photograph. He's on the left in the black shirt. Burning away the towers collapsed. He was covered from head to tone, soot and ash after he ran, but he survived, and he never even realized he was in that photo until weeks later. Partner, said for longtime. He kept that photo in his wallet. He was admitted to hospital in March. He died five days later. It was only after his death and he tested positive for the virus. Stephen Cooper was seventy eight years old and he will be missed. Dr Steven Cam holds was the chairman of medicine and. Medical Center in Brooklyn when the pandemic kid patients started flooding in doctors and nurses at his hospital. We're also getting infected but Dr. Cam holds he never even considered not going to work. That's kind of person personally was because of his age. He was in a high risk group, but his family says he would never ask a staff to assume the risk of catching the virus without assuming the risk himself. In April. He tested positive and then became a patient in his own hospital, but he kept on working teaching doctors and nurses from his hospital bed on how best to treat virus patients. He died eight weeks after contracting the virus. Dr Steven Cam Holtz was seventy two years old. Our thoughts go out to every family. It's been impacted by this virus and news continues now on a handed over Chris Cuomo Primetime. You expect a lot.

"A safe vaccine. How effective vaccine will be a time will tell and I? Don't think there's going to be just one vaccine. There'll be multiple vaccines that we try to get across the finish line as quickly as possible, and we may need multiple iterations of the vaccine. GOING, forward season to season. Explain why the vaccine that you're working on is potentially unique. Right, so. I work at the Walter Reed. Army Institute of Research, which is the largest and oldest research institute in the Department of Defense and we've been working on. Other viruses and other. Like merce and one of our approaches has been to develop a vaccine that attacks all corona. Within that virus family. And If. You think about all the vaccines out there. That are being advanced. It's. Essentially the same payload that they're delivering. If you think of sort of a chassis for vehicle what goes on the vehicle, that's the same. It's the spike protein of a the virus that latches onto your long cells with different with the different vaccines. Is that platform and our platform is like a soccer ball in? It has multiple faces on it, not twenty. And a spike protein goes on those twenty four faces. When you present something like that to the immune system, the vaccine is basically teaching the immune system to fight off the infection without getting the infection when you present that spike protein multiple times around in a small space that tends to boost immunity, and the benefit of this also is that you can mix and match different corona vires proteins so that if this corona virus mutates or we want to address other corona viruses known or unknown in the future, we can put the spike protein from those other corona viruses to pan. Universal vaccine. That's really fastening. Because obviously there are other viruses, and they're likely will be new corona viruses that you know we as of yet do not know about. He has said that given the circumstances he'll quote. Settle for vaccine that seventy to seventy five percent effective, but also raises the point that there's a large percentage, the American population that's. Anti Science Anti Thirty and anti vaccine I'm using the words of Dr Ouchi in order for a vaccine to work. How effective does it need to be? And how many people are percentage of people actually receive it. It all depends on what your purpose your intent it. Are you trying to decrease the number of infections? Are you trying to mitigate the disease severity There are different end points for different vaccines. Irises that are translated more easily like source koby to the virus that causes covid nineteen. You need a higher proportion of people who were vaccinated to completely interrupt transmission. We see with measles. Vaccine coverage goes down just a little bit. You get these outbreaks, so we don't know exactly what coverage you'll need to completely stop transmission, but even a vaccine that is somewhat effective in even taken by a proportion of the population is going to have some impact, and it's better to have some impact than nothing in our tool shed at all. Yeah, you took the long war. By that. You mean other viruses that are out there and others that are yet to come. This is a seventh corona virus that has been identified as infecting humans. Five of those seven have been identified since two thousand, three with SARS one. I. Don't you know there's no reason to think that things are accelerating? Decelerating so there's no reason to think that another one is not coming or that. This may not become a seasonal issue with this virus. Yeah, the doctrine would jared I appreciate all you're doing all you and your colleagues are doing. Walter Reed. Thank you so much for all your work and thanks for being with US tonight.

The book is called too much and never enough. How my family created the world's most dangerous man and his publication day was moved up until next week from a date in late July. You might remember the president's younger brother tried to stop publication of the book, but an appeals court lifted the temporary restraining order issued by a lower court among those who have read. It reported on Maggie. Haberman White House correspondent, The New York Times and CNN political analysts so Maggie the the this book you've seen it. There are a lot of sort of notable passages. Already online one. She writes that the Donald Trump hired and paid for someone to take his sat's. For him, writing that he listened quote, a smart kid with a good reputation, being a good test taker, we mentioned the White House has released a statement denying this What did you make of? What's coming out of book? Look I think a few things. Anderson I think certainly the SAT. Anecdote is very interesting and with any other president it would be mind blowing, but in terms of the things that this president has been accused of or or actually done over time it is, it is sort of a smaller by comparison look. She paints a pretty portrait of her uncle, she as a pretty dark portrait of her grandfather, and describes him as the person who made her uncle the way he is. She described her grandfather as says he path on there is a lot of.

"Arizona Texas California were also pretty concerned about South Carolina. We're seeing increases in turning the corner a little bit Ohio. That's one factor. The other factor is school openings that were expected in August in September. It's going to increase contact rates on car trajectories, and then you know the season malady that will start to kick in September and October all those come together to give us those numbers. For, I remember so school just schools kids going back to school if that happens. That means more people will die. Well it's kids going back to school, but it's all the other stuff around school. It's all the interaction happens. When kids go to school. We've seen in the mobility data back in March when school closures came in. Not just kids have less contact their parents. They're more likely to go to work. When gets rid school? There's all the after school activities interactions around school. To the package that has a big contributor to how much contact people have unless. Of course we're very careful about how schools openings or matched. Your finger now goes up to November. Is it still your expectation that once we're in November December January that then there is a there's the seasonal flu and then there's likely to be a resurgence of just seasonally for covid. That's certainly are very strong expectation, so we think that you'll be worse in November December. January doesn't probably the worst period for the pandemic in the US. If our understanding right now, it halts drew. On how much do your projections take into account whether or not state and local governments reimposed stay at home, orders, or business, closures, or mandatory mask-wearing, obviously some political leaders. Are Wary of doing that. Some are may have to consider that. We try to keep on top of the closures. Come in, and then we try to build those into the models, so since we know that if people had wear, masks can get it up to that Singapore. Level of ninety five percent of people wearing masks threw for example mandates that can reduce the death toll like member by about forty five thousand deaths, so if state start doing that than our forecast will definitely come down. We. Keep on talking that so wait. If if how what percentage of the population started actually wore mass, you said forty five thousand people would would who might die would survive. What is the percentage? So when you get people up to what Singapore has achieved, unmask wearing, which is ninety five percent of people wearing a mask when they're out in public spaces at risk of transmission. That's where we see that we can save for five thousand American lives. It's amazing that you can. Look at just that one factor and equate that to forty five thousand people being alive. Who otherwise would die I mean that's an extraordinary thing. What is the current ninety five percent? Obviously that Singapore level Singapore is much more draconian, legislation and rule then the US what is do you know what the current? Percentage of people were outside it. Well a percentage of masks varies allot cerro up in the northeast. Where you know, the pandemic was very bad. Basque use was very high. It was up in the seventy percent range, or even eighty percent, and then masks use is really low in of the states that haven't seen big epidemic yet. we also do see that. When states put in mandates were starting to see uptick in mask. Use when they so you know this is within the power states to put those mandates and local government in place. You've been tracking the data on this virus from the very beginning. We've been talking. Since the beginning of this outbreak based on the data did the US ever actually experienced an end to the first wave. Is this still the first wave? I don't think you know people talk about ways when they're thinking about like the Spanish flu or the flu season, where basically transmission ghost is zero and say there's a very distinct I wave, and then the next way. But coverage not behaving like that. We're not seeing anywhere going down to truly zero the you know there. There's a few exceptions like new. Zealand but in general. What we're seeing is the transmission went down for a period didn't get down to zero. And now it's bouncing back in many places, so it's. It's sort of artificial distinction we're. We're just in the middle of active transmission. Transmission. It's expanding states and it's likely to get worse Dr. Murray I appreciate being with us again. Thanks very much for all your work.

"Where there but it has to be balanced and they charge almost no tax and their primary taxes sales tax. You know. We're getting them at the monument. We're getting them. I get fireworks for twenty years or something. It hasn't been allowed for environmental reasons. You believe that when it's all stone so I'm trying to say where's the environmental reason. Anyway I got it approved. So I'M GONNA go there in July third and they're gonNA have the big fireworks South Dakota Christie and she was telling me about. Yeah they don't they have virtually no debt and many many of the governors It's Republicans or Republican Stuff and the states is so well run. This is a Democrat point. This is by far their biggest point. And I'm in no rush. I'll be honest with you. I mean if the if they do they're going to have to give us a lot and I hope you're proud of me but I was able to put that in phase for as opposed to phase one two and three and so they're they're ask is that and the other thing that we're talking about is infrastructure but you know they want infrastructure but I don't want it to be a green new deal infrastructure. I don't WanNa be talking about the carbon footprint and then Obama flies to Hawaii to play golf in his plane when he was president and then talks about how he lands that he starts giving a speech on the carbon footprint but he flies thousands of miles to Hawaii in air force. One seven forty seven. The whole thing is no thing is crazy. No I don't Wanna be talking windmills windmills. I ended that tax. We've subsidy the all that stuff. It's it's amazingly now you look at what's going on with the prices of oil and gas. We're getting it for practically free and you'll be proud to know that I'm filling up the strategic reserve for with oil that's costing risks like nothing. Nothing little lucky in that but we take you have to take advantage of your luck you know because of the prices. I'm filling up the strategic reserve. Which a lot of empty space that it and we're filling it up And you know happily doing so. Mr President one question. I get often from my audiences the national debt. Soon Nami coming away now. Obviously the virus. No one saw this coming. Despite media faking a head fake and everyone pretending they were the ones who saw it coming? When they were saying the opposite by the way and calling you Zena Fo- for the travel ban which save hundreds of thousands of lives potentially but that's a whole other topic right at the National Debt. Tsunami coming our way is a real problem the entitlements we just don't have the money if reelected and. I'm hoping that happens. I don't think my where my political stripes on my sleeve. Do you have a plan for that? It really seriously do you up at night and now this year right and it bothers me too but we're going to get out of it and I'll tell you number one remember this. We're barring fairly long term and long term money at zero okay. That's good. That's the big difference between zero and five percent and you know my biggest fear was always that but we have. We're putting in were replacing debt with really long term. Good debt zero with beautiful thing. Our dollar is very strong. The good news is that we have a strong dollar. Okay the bad news is it's harder to do business overseas with other currencies where they're falling but our currency is really powerful now. It's really strong. We're going to be able to do things that are going to be amazing at. We're keeping it strong. We're going to be and what that means is we're oversubscribed every time we go out if we WANNA do highways and if we want to do whatever we want to do we're paying zero and we're over subscribed many times what we ask for with other places as you know. Don't have such an easy time. Getting money We will year five. We will start doing things that will be magic and importantly and by the way you'll always have your social security. We're not playing that game. The Democrats will never they will ruin social security. Because whether it's Medicare for all any of their plans are ruined social security by the way you're GONNA lose your fifth. You'RE GONNA lose. In in my opinion you take you take your second amendment. You take other amendments but let's take your Second Amendment you can lose your second amendment. You'RE GONNA lose gun rights. You know that if they get in you'll be losing gun rights a hundred percent. They WANNA. It's amazing shift that they've taken on that so you're going to lose that you're gonNA lose so much. I think it's GonNa be a very interesting election. I think that the last election dad was so important and I always said that's GonNa that's the most important but we need the four more years so all this stuff seeds you know. We've done so much including tax cuts. They want to raise taxes. They want to do everything the opposite. We're GONNA have tremendous growth. I think what's happening. I think you're going to have a transition we're starting that transition soon. That'll be the third quarter. The fourth quarter is GONNA be incredible and next year I think is going to be comparable to any year. We've had and we'll also be very strong on the bottom line now with all of this. I have to say the Democrats every time we want to do. Something on the military for our defense to Democrats up wants something that's terrible. You understand like not a thing that you would not a thing you or your wife would approve that I can tell you and you have to go along with it because otherwise you're not gonna get the votes you know. We need their votes where people don't understand we may have majority like in the Senate but it's fifty three forty seven small majority and and we may have when we had it in the house. It was what you need Democrat votes and in order to get that you have to give away things like the last time Kennedy Center. Twenty five million dollars. It's CR- I'm I'm a fan of the Kennedy Center but I don't want to Co visit but you know they demand Kennedy Center. They demanded things that were terrible. But the big pictures we had to get what we had to get for the workers and for the small company. So you're gonNA see incredible things happening in year five and six. You're going to be very happy. Okay we're GONNA have a great. I think we'll have a great next year. It's gotta be incorrect. As I've told you personally I love your line. We will build it again. That's an optimal we're gonNA build it again then goosebumps when you said that. I'm not kidding. You can get abused goosebumps. I can give anybody goosebumps. I know this Man Ladies and gentlemen. I know him very well man. He's a great guy he's a sweeter more questions. Everyone thinks he's a sweetheart. I'm a softy. I'm a big teddy bear yesterday. You'd mentioned in the press conference and of course the media as they always do misconstrued. Your comments you had suggested that I'm not asking you to get into the intelligence at all but you would suggest that you had seen some evidence that the virus came from the Wuhan lab not that it was created in the Wuhan Lab which some media folks I was GonNa say something different but of respect for the office I will not said that I should say that you wish suggesting it was created in the Wuhan but you did not say Can you just comment on that please? So we can correct ninety out of the question was a straightforward question and. I also really said that we'll be talking to you about it at a later date when we really know some good hard facts. But I've seen a lot of things I've seen it. I've seen things I've I've seen probably every version of most of the things you've heard and some of the things you haven't heard you've heard pretty much all of it but we're gonNA find out about it you know. I did an incredible deal. China's been ripping US off for years. Hey who's talked more about China than me? It was one of the between the border you know. Nobody talks to you. Notice to Derrick Mr President. They used to make fun of you on the campaign trail. How often you brought up China and now you notice they flip the script that you were being soft on China. This is bizarre. It's like well in. But but I talked about China's ripping us off. I mean they would take it out from three hundred billion to five hundred billion dollars a year out of our country of our hides for two years and that is in all fairness sleepy jail. He had no idea he has no clue but Obama and and Joe they rip them off so badly but they also did with previous administrations. I mean this fears until I came along and I've taken in billions and billions of dollars literally a month then. China's never gave us ten cents and now they have and even before the tragedy remember I put tariffs twenty five percent in two hundred and fifty billion and they targeted farmers and took the money a small piece of it. Because it did. I said how much the targets get. Did they get to the farmers get targeted for Dan? Bay said Sir Sonny Perdue. Who's the Secretary of agriculture? Doing a great job they said Sir Two years ago was twelve billion this year. Sixteen billion I said good. We'll take twelve billion and we'll take sixteen billion out of our tariff money. We have a lot. Leftover like tens of millions leftover from China. And we'll give it and I gave twelve billion the year before and they gave a sixteen billion last year. And we're giving nineteen billion this year. Nobody ever did that. And one of the reasons that the other administrations never challenged Jonah. Is They thought that they'd take advantage of I said no? No you'RE GONNA pay tariffs twenty five percent on two hundred and fifty billion that a lot of money plus ten percent on any money over that. So you're GONNA pay tariffs and they did so we've taken in tens of billions of dollars and I've been able to help the farmers who unfairly targeted and you haven't heard any complaints. I'll tell you and you know the farmers love me and I love them but but the thing about the Democrats like as an example. They want open borders. So look how well I've done at the border? That border is sealed except where farmers need people coming through. You know we make it actually easier. We can't kill our hurt. Our farmers you know it's too with people. A certain people coming through but the border is sealed and we built one hundred and seventy miles of wall already and it's moving forward at a rapid rate. Every every week we build two three four more miles. I'll have by early next year. The will be complete. Nobody ever talks about it. You know the Democrats. Don't talk about it because they now know. That was a bad political move. They oppose me on the wall and Dan. I'll say nobody else but me could've gotten that wall. We add the Democrats. I got seven hundred thirty eight million dollars for the military..

We talked about the votes earlier. But what are the arguments that led to them. And where do we go from here. Here we got a real live constitutional law expert with us for this. ABC News Legal Analyst. Kate Shaw and Kate. We talked earlier in the show. About how Democrats and Republicans were just really at each other's throats for hours for days for weeks. Is this all gamesmanship is that how is that how I should see it or or do they each have legitimate constitutional gripes with each other. You Know No. I think that the Democrats are making a case that is constitutional. They are arguing that the conduct here was so agree. Just that it warrants. The ultimate constitutional sanctions enchanted drafters of our Constitution designed a government in wish. Ambition was made to check ambition in which no branch of government would predominate manege over another. And no man would be allowed to be above the law including the president especially the president that that's a power that should be used rarely early but basically the conduct at issue here was sort of exactly at the heart of what the framers were trying to target when they wrote impeachment into the Constitution. Mr Mr Trump has allowed foreign powers to interfere in our domestic affairs. He's endangered our national security and our democracy itself for those reasons. We must impeach this presidency. That as the argument that the Democrats I think making and they think they've been hoping that the the facts here speak so clearly that there that they would dislodge some Republicans from their partisan corners and get some Republican support obviously these proceedings proceedings sorta culminating in. Yesterday's vote have made clear that none of that is happening. Let's look at these two phony articles of impeachment Washington Cheetan liberals have failed. The Democrats have trampled them all in their stampede. To impeach their cohorts at a deep state in the mainstream media they republicans have made arguments arse in constitutional terms but then I think are primarily more political that they're they're accusing the Democrats of acting out of hatred. You heard this term a number of times. They hate this president. They've been looking for a way to get rid of him. And you know the the Ukraine call is just excuse that they have land and upon so so those are constitutional arguments. Exactly I mean they think. The constitution sets a very high bar and the Democrats haven't cleared the president himself. Kate essentially said like hey I make policy. Oh see with Ukraine. You guys can argue with me over policy. But that's not impeachable right. That's that's the line sure. So the president saying that and his allies in the house are saying that and the Democrats are saying we stipulated. We disagree with you about almost every policy question. That's not what this is about. This is about some agreed violation of your constitutional both and agreed abuse of power and yesterday we started hearing from some Democrats. You know. Maybe we don't actually send these articles of impeachment over the Senate as promptly we is everyone was expecting like why would you do that and is is that a thing you can actually do Brad so the speaker of the House actually has a lot of control over what happens next. I vote proudly for these two articles of impeachment and then I hope the house retains control of the articles so they sent. It can't take these articles of impeachment until the house formerly delivers them to the Senate and the timing of that is within the speakers control so she could decide. We're going to do this in the first week or the second week of January as I think think is still the most likely scenario. Make our decision as to one. We're going to send it when we see what they're doing on the Senate side but that's a decision that we will make jointly eh or as you said there has been some talk of potentially hitting pause there are some Law Professors in particular advocating for maybe I'm trying to do some negotiating with the Senate before delivering the articles in order to get some concessions about things like live witnesses. I am not going to support witnesses. This is being called for by the president. I'm not going to support witnesses. Being called for by Senator Schumer in particular because Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham I have sent signals that in some ways the outcome here is for ordained this is a political process is not anything. Judicial about impeachment is a political decision now. Obviously House Democrats would like something that looks more like a genuine proceeding which you know minds are open new testimony when he can come in and the outcome is not you know a foregone conclusion that means why Nancy Pelosi sorta sit around with them for awhile. Is there any chance that that she does that. It seems unlikely to me but I do think that it's an idea. That's getting a little bit of traction so I I bet they'll be At the very some kind of internal caucus discussion of the possibility in the machinery of the impeachment process churns on even today Kate Shah. Thanks so much thanks Brad and one last thing I want to go back to the Capitol for some perspective this morning because ABC senior. National correspondent. Terry Moran is actually standing right outside and Terry. I'm reminded that you watch the impeachment of President Clinton play Out Twenty one years ago today did what you saw last night feel the same feel different. It feels very different. Grad that that felt momentous intas and even though the conduct was considered by most Americans not really to warrant impeachment it was about sex the process itself to see the the House of Representatives. And the Senate take these solemn constitutional steps it did feel momentous and I must say it is a sign of the times not it just the partisanship but the news cycles and the kind of country we are today it does not have that gravity it feels like just another chapter in and the outrage and the bitterness and the melodrama the the high stakes reality show that our politics have become that even this constitutional step feels like just another week in the trump presidency and Teri does that tell us more about president trump and his presidency or does he just tell us about Democrats and Republicans these parties in two thousand nineteen. You know both because the parties have changed that's for sure there used to be moderate Republicans and conservative Democrats During the Clinton White House and so they were up for grabs their votes. were up for grabs. The these are just two bitterly opposed camps for the first time in his privileged life life. Donald Trump will be finally held accountable. Listen this has nothing to do with the constitution. It has nothing to do with anything but raw politics. They A and they're voters locked in. Were fifty fifty country. Nobody moves much at all but it also does show how the personality of Donald Trump honed honed over seventy plus years outsized brazen forceful has taken hold of the National Discussion National Imagination. Like like no president that I can think of what they put. My family through is a disgrace me. It's my life it's fine I do but you know what what they put put. My family through is a disgrace and they ought to be ashamed and we should get apologies all over the place pretty much. Everything revolves around him. It seems not just our debates in the halls of Congress but the actions of athletes on the playing fields the old ward shows in our arts even the kind of straws we drink everything everything ends up revolving around him because he bends the national discussion to his will his personality which is performed. and which is just just mercurial. You can never know what's going to happen next. And I think people are numb to that L.. The president trump himself you might say keenly aware of his legacy here and as of this morning he seeks to become the first president ever re elected after being impeached.

"On this vote. The yeas are two hundred and thirty. The nays are one ninety. Seven present. Is One article. One is adopted. Two hundred thirty to one ninety seven. That was the tally last night. At eight thirty four eastern time cemented a key part of Donald J trump's legacy because that was the moment he became an impeached president minutes later. A second article of impeachment was passed with with two hundred twenty nine votes article. Two is adopted. Remember it was late July when an anonymous whistle blower reached out to staff members at the House Intelligence Committee expressing concern about a phone call between president trump and the leader of Ukraine though staffers told the whistleblower to hire a lawyer to file a complaint with the Intelligence Committees Inspector General the House Intelligence Committee has just released. The whistle blower complained declassified version of timber. All of America had read that report from the whistle blower says in in the course of my official duties I have received information from multiple. US government officials that the President United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign in country in the two thousand twenty US election less than three months. Democrats conducted depositions that conducted hearings and last night they pass those articles the president Now officially stands charged with abusing his power and obstruction of Congress. And we're going to hear how this went down yesterday whilst GonNa look ahead to the next phases of this so let's get to it. Let's start at the Capitol itself. ABC Senior Congressional correspondent. Mary Bruce Joins US and Mary. The voting took what like twenty minutes and yet this was is really an all day thing. You had more than six hours of debate evenly split between the parties one last chance for both sides of the aisle to make their case and the partisan divide could not have been more stark. All that matters to this president is what affects him personally speaker Pelosi all day setting the tone. What we are discussing today is the established fact that the president violated the Constitution? He sat there in the chamber often in the back by herself as is listening throughout the entire thing and she said as she has said throughout this entire process this is a solemn occasion we gather today under the Dome of this temple full of democracy to exercise one of the most solemn powers that this body can take. It was hard to miss the fact that she was dressed all in black but when she did take to the four to make remarks she made it very clear that she feels the president's actions had left them with simply no choice. If we do not act now we would be derelict in our duty because of course impeachment impeachment was not something the police had wanted to do. This was a day that she had in many ways tried for a long time to avoid this impeachment as renting our country and have it's fatally flawed on a process the substance the intentions and the consequences. It's a total shift show and on the Republicans it was very clear. They are in lockstep with the president. President they were eager to mount a fierce defense. You're about to impeach a duly elected president. Who has done nothing wrong? Of course we didn't see a single Republican break ranks with the president here and they railed against the Democrats for hours. They'll be forever remembered as the Senator Joe McCarthy's of our time one Republican at one point trying to compare the impeachment process to the trial of Jesus Christ haunches pilot afforded more rights to Jesus than the Democrats have afforded this president. Of course you have heard the the president himself compare this process to the Salem witch trials so a lot of Colorful comparisons going on your on the hill and that takes us up to the vote. How did that play out on the floor? Mary House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi presided over these two votes. The first one abusive power and no surprise here. It was a party line. Vote as these. He's votes were occurring. You could actually hear chance. Four more years from Republicans inside the chamber some Democrats were also feeling rowdy as Pelosi slammed the gavel. You can hear them applause laws speaker. Pelosi didn't like that. She put up a finger almost as if she was chiding children's cut it out. We have bipartisan. Opposition impeachment. Not Bipartisan Support and Democrats were largely united as well but two of them did defect to oppose impeachment. They are Congressman van drew of New Jersey. Who's actually already announced that? He plans to switch parties entirely and become a Republican in Collin Peterson of Minnesota a district. The President Trump won by thirty points. There's been a lot a lot of focus. Paid to these moderate Democrats in swing districts that are up for re election. But what has actually been kinda surprising here on. The Hill is how many of them fell in line behind the Democrats today. An oath that gives me resolve resolve to do what is right and not what is politically expedient so many of in the previous day's one by one have come out fallen in line saying that. They feel that they had to back impeachment because I stick with their principles even though they knew that could have cost them their jobs. I come to this floor not as a Democrat not as a Republican but as an American who cares deeply about the constitution. The the closest comparison Democrats had just a mosh rate used to be a Republican. Now he's Independent. He voted for impeachment but then Republicans could also point to Tulsi Gabbard at Democrats kratz running for president. She was that person voting present who couldn't quite bring herself to pull the trigger. Either way. Mary what do you see is the mood of these lawmakers because as we talked about you know these solemn long faces Democrats talked about the anger these Republicans but that genuine performance like what is it. I think it's all of the above. Brad I mean look this has become one of the most intensely partisan episodes I think of our history. It's interesting to see how very few of them Wanna address any of the facts of the president's misconduct nor do they wish to defend nor do they wish apparently Madam Speaker I've struck a nerve and it's more than just a partisan divide. We saw this fundamental divide over right and wrong and that led to essentially a debate where the two parties can't even agree on the basic facts of what happened here and short given the nature feature of this debate Impeachment is a political process. You did hear a lot of political grandstanding but you also heard a lot of passion on both sides. Republicans are adamant that the president did nothing wrong here and they were eager to launch a very fierce defense while Democrats argue the exact opposite. They say they have simply no choice. But got to impeach the president that he has put his own political interest of those of this country and they went ahead and did it in a way that like you said. We've never really seen before Mary. Bruce Thank you thanks Brad..

So the exact tone of his remarks wasn't fully clear, and so we'll have to interpret that and get the readouts from each side afterwards. But they did at least. Raise briefly the subject of Russian meddling in US, presidential elections. I mean surely the biggest topic of discussion will be trade, though, right? Especially for President Trump. That's right. US has some kind of trade issue with quite a few countries out there. Whether it be the European Union Japan, India. And of course, China now in these meetings this morning. President Trump took a fairly conciliatory tone, he didn't seem to want to make. Hey, about the issue at least when he was meeting, these leaders directly, the main event seems to be the meeting between Gijon paying and Trump on Saturday. Right. That's right. President Trump just before he takes off for South Korea will have a meeting with Xi Jinping. And the question is, whether they can get started restarted at trade talks that have been suspended for a couple of months now and whether they can find a way a path away from the US imposing tariffs on more than three hundred billion dollars in Chinese goods, or put another way the question. Has whether they can find the path away from the direction the US is taking which would be to have twenty five percent tariffs on virtually everything that China exports to the US, and it sounds like China has a long list of demands going into that meeting. That's right. Our reporters lingering way. Bob Davis Zorin Asaka reported that China is planning to present its conditions for restarting talks, and it would like the US for one thing to put aside that threat of tariffs, that's hanging over China. It would like the US to ease off some of the harsh sanctions, they put on while way major Chinese telecommunications maker, and a couple of other things. So I would say there's no way that the US would agree to all of those demands, and the question is, whether they can maybe agree partially to some of them and, and make that an occasion to restart a more formal talks, so with so much happening. What does a successful summit look like for President Trump?.

Former FBI director James Comey token impeachment became louder with a Republican controlled congress app was all it was talk. Now that democrat haven't majority in the house that could change. But should house moved to impeach the Atlantic's Yanni apple bomb says yes, he looks to history to make his arguments in the March issue of the Atlantic. Yanni is good to heavier here on must be rock. You be calling for impeachment of President Trump. How come well? I have come to think of impeachment as a remedy devised for the political crisis the Nisshin presently faces. So I had originally thought of it as an outcome and have swung around to think of it as a process as a means of resolving a debate over the fitness of president, sir of an and really the only constitutional meetings of having an resolving that debate. And since we're having that debate, it seems like we ought to trigger the mechanism to do a properly, you're a trained historian, and I gather initially you were looking at the impeachment of Andrew Johnson. Yes. That's right. I thought I would I would write a wonderful history of of. An earlier episode with contemporary echoes in fan myself surprised as I delved into the sources and head Johnson speeches and the transcripts of of testimony of the inquiries, and then the actual trial that the story that that I had learned was not the story that I was encountering Johnson's impeachment is often presented as baldly political act in and. A dangerous episode in in our pass when we came close to removing chief executive for purely political reasons a cautionary tale if you will. And instead what I saw was a process functioning largely as it and one that averted a quite a few much worse outcomes that that loomed in the offing can you replay it made this Erkan stances that led up to that coal for impeachment. Yeah. Andrew Johnson comes to office. And nobody expects him to be president. He's considered uncultured. He comes from the east, Tennessee hill country. He's the wartime democratic governor of of Tennessee. And so when Lincoln is looking for a new running maiden eighteen sixty four when he's afraid he may lose he forms, a national union party in and runs on on a cross partisan ticket Lincoln is a Republican Johnson is a democrat. An so Johnson is delivered into the presidency by NS. Asan's bullet and with the war ending has to figure out what the future of the country looks like while the war raged Johnson and Lincoln were on the same side of the fight Johnson headed slaveholders, even more than Lincoln did that they were the the autocratic elite of his state, and and a hog the political power and he wanted to see their power crashed with slavery gone. That was the limit of the change that Andrew Johnson wanted to see he believed as he said that this was a white man's country which needed a white man's government. He wanted no civil much less political rights for the freed slaves or or other black people living in the United States and was prepared to go to extremes to defend that as we're insurgents who were fighting throughout the American South. So this is the backdrop you have a president who whose ascension to that office of contested legitimacy. Many Republicans felt this wasn't what they'd voted for who. Many in congress started to feel. We're not fulfilling the. Basic responsibilities of the job. And then the the crisis comes and the crisis is is an unprecedented. One in American history. There have been five vetoes ever overridden prior to Andrew Johnson taking office one was twelve or three AM on the last night that Tyler was an office and the others were river improvement bills under under Franklin Pierce, all of a sudden congress passing civil rights legislation and the president is vetoing it, and they are overriding. We'd never asked a president enforce a law that he had opposed. It hadn't happened before in Johnson affectively refuses to do it. And so you have unfolding over the course of a couple of years a conflict between a congress, which is telling the president what the laws and asking him to enforce it and a president who is doing everything that he can to act oughta critically in defy that congress that that's a constitutional crisis. Did Charleston proposed did with those freed slaves. He wanted to reestablish the racial hierarchy. Key that had existed in the south before the war. And in fact, that the states that the transom wants to come back into the union human. They never really been out of the union. The they start passing these black codes, which which say things like a black person can only be off their own land with written permission of a white person. Or they all have to have jobs or that can be locked up for vagrancy that they need to, you know, step off the sidewalk I out of deference to white person who's walking along this was the kind of racial hierarchy that Johnson wanted to see establish and it was being established by sorghum blood throughout the south. You have things like the Ku Klux Klan forming and killing those blacks and also white Republicans who who are trying to establish some degree of of civil equality. Johnson blames black people for this violence says that it is their provocative efforts to secure civil then political rights for themselves that are inciting it I in that congress is to blame as well for encouraging them in these aspirations toward equality. So you. He went into that thinking, it was purely political and came away recognizing that they were true important questions raised you ask that's where you can think of this as a political dispute right that there are two different policies that that were on the table for the reconstruction of the United States, but it moves beyond that because very rapidly guests to the question of is the president upholding his of to faithfully administer the laws of the United States is he defending the constitution would congress is amending to to extend rights is he fulfilling the ideals and fundamentally is he fit for office. He he is the first president in office to go and speak to big rallies. This has not been done before he goes in. What's called swing around the circle, and these are raucous affairs. Where he gets up there before a crowd of supporters. He adapts his speeches on the fly listening to what the crowds applauding and tumbling down on that. He'll he'll go back and forth with hecklers in one. Of these notoriously a heckler Jess that that he's the plan for not hanging Jefferson Davis, the confederate president, and he goes on a riff in and suggests that instead if anyone's going to be hanged, he should be hanging thatt's evens who's the leader of the congressional Republicans. So he's calling for the lynching of his political rivals this kind of rhetoric greatly disturbed congress and and really called into question. The president's fitness for the office that he held sell player Dez this. Well, you know, there is a process that moves by fits and starts that that will. I think very familiar to anyone watching the contemporary process unfold. After the swing around the circle they convene impeachment proceedings that there's a rebuke in a midterm election at empowers congress, and and the inquiry drags on for for more than a year opening closing whenever it moves further away from impeachment Johnson acts more critically and ignores congress, whenever they inquiries, particularly serious. He pulls back a little bit and behaves himself the. Early theories of peach mint. Many of them were not to put too to find a point on it. We're not the man who had ridden the thirteenth amendment and and initially calls for impeachment does so on the theory that Johnson had helped assassinate ABRAHAM LINCOLN. He later tells the committee that the evidence he has for this is not the sort of evidence that would be admitted in a court of law. It's more of a hunch, really. And so the process does two things it starts to focus on the things that Johnson is doing that are genuinely objectionable, and well evidenced, but it also puts a lot of these other theories out their demands that members of congress put forward the evidence to substantiate their claims, and where they can't do that it sets the messiah and discards them. So you have this extended process of discernment and discovery which both holds Johnson back from doing some of the things that he wants to do because he feels the pressure, but much more importantly, it allows the public to start to get a view of what Johnson is like they get to see what he's actually done. They get to see which claims have evidence in which are unsubstantiated. And that's a really healthy process. How do they end up? Well, you know that they don't manage to impeach him at first and and after a year of hearings they still haven't found the grounds from moving forward. And then Johnson does something extraordinary. He fires his secretary of war despite previously having recognized a law called the tenure of office act that that told him he couldn't do that essentially without Congress's permission that law may have been unconstitutional, but the firing of the secretary of war is is extraordinarily in two ways. One is it is the culminating event congress has gone to greater and greater measures to try to get the president enforce the law. He keeps on firing people who are trying to enforce the law. So the tenure of office act is maybe an unconstitutional extension Congress's authority. But what is really about is trying to find some last ditch effort to just say to the guy. Hey, you're the president your job is to enforce the law, and you've gotta stop firing the people who are trying to actually do that. It doesn't work. He he he breaks it. The other thing that makes it extraordinary as there is a night in the capital in. The city where
