BREAKING NEWS TRUMP 1/23/19 | CNN News January 23, 2019

[Music] day 33 of the government shutdown and two competing proposals to end it will get a vote in the Senate do they have any chance I find it unacceptable that Coast Guard men and women have to rely on food pantries FBI agents should not have to go work at a store striking Los Angeles teachers back in the classroom today just as teachers in another major American city vote to walk off the job actually break is good to have you back did you miss the government shutdown is not challenged one bit Wednesday January 23rd for a man DS and the shutdown drags on the Senate set to take two votes tomorrow on competing bills to end this 33 day old government shutdown neither of them has given any real chance of success one bill backed by Republicans would fund the president’s border wall at the full 5.7 billion dollars he has demanded and would offer three year extensions for dreamers and immigrants in the US on temporary protected status of TPS the Democrats proposal already passed by the House has no money for a wall it would reopen the federal government through February 8th while negotiations for a permanent fix go on both proposals is expected to fail at this point because neither would get the 60 votes to advance seriously White House press secretary Sarah sander sanders would not directly answer CNN’s question whether the president would veto the route Democrats plan if it gets sixty votes because I’m gonna veto that bill look the president has a proposal on the table he’s laid out what he would like to see and he’s made that clear time and time again the real question is why are Democrats not supporting the president’s proposal it Democrats pushing back saying the Republican plan is one-sided and made in bad faith must be granted closely tweeting this if Trump gets away was shutting down the government to get what he wants he will do this again going forward he will continue to hold workers hostage to his demands FBI agents meanwhile sounding the alarm over the shutdown they say serious damage is being done to their counterterrorism and anti-gang operations dozens of agents releasing an anonymous report that concludes the impasse is weakening national security the president of the FBI agents Association calling on lawmakers to figure out a solution fast realistically FBI agents should not have to go work at a store stocking shelves because they can’t feed their families on their government job they’re still working 50-plus hours a day a week so when are they gonna find time to go get that second job it’s ridiculous the TSA also pleading for helpless the shutdown drags on according to an internal email obtained exclusively by CNN officials there are asking for 250 officers to move to move temporarily from their home airports to bolster staff at airports that are short-handed 10% of the TSA workforce had unexcused absences over the weekend that’s three times the number a year ago the shutdown over the president’s demand for stronger border security forcing the State Department to cancel an international conference focused on border security the conference was scheduled to take place next month in Edinburgh Scotland with a goal of preventing the proliferation and transfer of weapons of mass destruction and conventional weapons across borders alright the Smithsonian managed to stay open for the first 11 days the governor shut down but has since closed as museums and the National Zoo now the Smithsonian secretary says the closure of its restaurants the shops IMAX theaters and other operations is costing the institution a million dollars in unrecoverable revenue each week the head of the Coast Guard says members of his service branch are relying on food pantries and donations during the shutdown he calls it unacceptable Admiral Carl Schultz tweeting out a video of support to his struggling team we’re five plus weeks into the anxiety and stress of this government lapse and your non pay you as members of the Armed Forces should not be expected to shoulder this burden I find it unacceptable that Coast Guard men and women have to rely on food pantries and donations to get through day to day life as service members devastated on January 15 thousands of active duty Coast Guard members did not receive their regular paychecks marking the first time in the history US service members were not paid during a lapse in government funding America’s military a branch of America’s military not being paid I mean that’s just unbelievable in in in in today’s society not just a branch but the president talks a lot about drugs funneling into this country the Coast Guard keeps a lot of those drugs out of this the idea of bread lines for federal workers here’s another example and makeshift food pantry for federal workers springing up in Brooklyn outside the Barclays Center a Sonya Smith a furloughed TSA employee drove all the way from Queens she says she has never had to depend on anyone else for food but is the sole provider for her family she has no choice I feel like I’m in another world like I can’t believe this has happening every day I wake up late well here we go again and I stayed watching the news it’s the here’s something positive but it’s not working so says she is burning through her savings and if the shutdown lasts another week she’ll be spending all her time traveling from food pantry to food pantry for more information on how you can assist American federal workers affected by the government shutdown you can go to cnn.com flashy impact then there’s the state of the press the state of the union address still a little vague this morning House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calling for the address to be delayed or delivered in writing because of the government shutdown White House press secretary Sarah Sanders says that’s not stopping the president for now Nancy Pelosi invited the president he accepted she cited concerti concerns as a potential reason to delay that the United States Secret Service and DHS have addressed those concerns and we’re moving forward until something changes on that front Pelosi appears to be playing hardball over the holiday weekend the administration asked for a walkthrough in the house to prepare for the State of the Union address that request was denied special counsel robert muller wants to know more about the Trump campaigns relationship with the National Rifle Association a former Trump campaign aide tell CNN he was asked about it a year ago when he was interviewed by Moeller’s team and CNN has learned the special counsel had been asking questions about the NRA as recently as a month ago we get more from Sarah Marie good morning Christine and Dave we are getting our first sign the special counsel is interested in the Trump campaigns relationship with the National Rifle Association during the 2016 election Sam Nunn Berg a former Trump campaign aide telling CNN when I was interviewed by the special counsels office I was asked about the Trump campaign and our dealings with the NRA now the questions from numbers interview in February 2018 are the first indication that Muller has been probing the Trump campaigns ties to this powerful gun rights group and Muller scene was still asking questions about this as recently as a month ago cNN has learned Muller’s investigators wanted to know how Trump in his early operatives first formed a relationship with the NRA and I’ll chunk wound up speaking at the group’s 2015 annual meeting just months before he announced his presidential bid according to nunberg now the NRA hasn’t been accused of any wrongdoing by law enforcement but it has come under plenty of public scrutiny for its ties to Russians like Maria Bhutto who pleaded guilty to engaging in conspiracy against the US and as part of her plea deal she actually admitted to trying to build relationships with the NRA and trying to influence US relations with Russia lawmakers have also been looking into the NRA financial support of Trump in 2016 and whether there were any large sums of Russian money that flowed to the NRA this is something the NRA denies now we don’t know if Muller is diving deeply into this NRA Trump connection or if he’s just covering all of his bases the special counsels office declined to comment for our story and the NRA didn’t respond to requests for comment we should note that when Moses a series of written questions to President Trump Trump was not asked about the NRA back to you guys okay Sarah Murray thanks Michael Cohen’s testimony before Congress next month will not include any topic that is under investigation that’s according to top Republicans on the House Oversight Committee they claim Cohen’s lawyer informed them the testimony will be unsatisfying and frustrating because so much is off-limits that could mean the president’s former personal attorney won’t discuss lying to Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow project or the payments made to women during the 2016 campaign for their silence the newest member of the committee that will question Michael Cohen is Alexandria Ocasio Cortez the freshman Democrat from New York is one of several young progressives to join the House Oversight Panel which would be very active investigating the Trump administration joining Acacio Cortez on the committee will be Rasheeda Talib of Michigan a Jana Presley of Massachusetts and Rohan ro Khanna of California now the committee is expected to hear public testimony from Cohen on February 7th sources tell CNN President Trump is not mad at Rudy Giuliani despite the conflicting answers his attorney has given in interviews recently among the contradictions Giuliani told NBC Sunday the president hadn’t been involved in talks about building Trump Tower Moscow nearly up to Election Day 2016 throughout 2016 remember yeah probably up to could be up to as far as October November that answer contradicted months of statements by Trump and his team that discussions ended in January 2016 within a day Giuliani had to walk it back saying his comments were hypothetical even so a source familiar with the Trump legal team says quote Rudy’s not getting fired president thinks Giuliani is effective another source tells us Giuliani is one of the few people the president has not been screaming about over the last few days president Trump’s top economic adviser Larry Kudlow is denying reports that the u.s. canceled a meeting this week with the Chinese government as the two countries rushed to strike a trade deal now reports suggest – the United States had turned down an offer by Chinese negotiators to hold preliminary talks this week deputy level kind of planning this week ahead of that critical meeting with China’s chief trade negotiator next week there were no other intermediate meeting scheduled be the story is unchanged we are moving towards negotiations Chinese vice premier Liu is expected to meet with US Trade Representative Robert light Heiser in the Treasury Secretary of the venusian for two days of talks next week White House spokeswoman said preparation for those talks is ongoing the two countries are racing to reach a deal by March first if there’s no deal the u.s. jacks up tariffs on two hundred billion dollars in Chinese goods to 25 percent from 10 percent and it just shows you the width of any kind of of change or news or nuance in that those trade negotiations can really move markets and change that are you optimistic by March 1st I mean it’s a really tough deadline and the fact that and what Larry Kudlow is saying is there were no scheduled preliminary talks no there weren’t the reporting yesterday was that the Chinese reached out and said maybe we need to have like a pre round here to lay out some some you know some some goal posts and the u.s. said no looks like another round of tariffs we shall see an out of control car a slippery Highway head straight for a state trooper see

Federal Reserve’s policies the Dow declined 302 points that’s about 1.2 percent on Tuesday Wall Street futures right now pointing a little bit higher here just two-tenths of a percent I would call that an unremarkable bounce back from yesterday’s performance the market has rebounded so far this year but major averages are still down from their October highs so stocks are not as expensive as

in the military to go into effect for now it was a closely divided 5-4 order the Supreme Court splitting down ideological lines the court did not take a stance on the legality of the ban it’s going to let that play out in the lower courts this policy was first announced by the president via Twitter in 2017 it was later released by then Secretary of Defense James Madison it blocks individuals who have been diagnosed with a condition known as gender dysphoria from serving with limited exceptions the Department of Defense said the policy was based on its professional military judgment so that the Armed Forces remain quote the most lethal and combat effective fighting force in the world but it was a huge disappointment for supporters of LGBT rights they called the policy irrational and cruel Dave Christine all right thank you for that around the White House announcing plans to read on innate 50 judicial appointees of the new Congress rekindling a battle between Republicans and

more from San Juan senator Warren visiting Puerto Rico this week an interesting political choice given that the residents of Puerto Rico do not get to vote in the US presidential election it was clear that she wanted to come here in cart to send a message about president Trump she has been very critical of the way that President Trump and the administration have handled the aftermath of Hurricane Maria we asked her about that in an interview in San Juan before she spoke at this event here behind me we also asked her about the growing 2020 Democratic field here is what she had to say Donald Trump won’t even pay the people of Puerto Rico the courtesy of acknowledging the deaths of the people they love and now that he’s caught in this fight to try to find funding to be able to build a monument to hate on the southern border of the United States he looks over to Puerto Rico to see if he can take away unspent dollars that were designated for relief efforts yep it’s just fundamentally
