Watch live: New York Governor Andrew Cuomo holds daily coronavirus briefing

AND HOW DO WE DO IT? THAT’S THE QUESTION SHOW SOME LEADERSHIP FRIDAY, IS JUNETEENTH, IT COMMEMORATES THE EMANCIPATION OF SLAVERY IN THE UNITED STATES IT IS A DAY THAT WE SHOULD ALL REFLECT UPON IT’S A DAY THAT’S ESPECIALLY RELEVANT IN THIS MOMENT IN HISTORY I’M GOING TO SIGN AN EXECUTIVE ORDER TODAY, HENCE, ALL MY PENS, RECOGNIZING JUNETEENTH AS A HOLIDAY FOR STATE EMPLOYEES AND I’LL SIGN IT NEXT YEAR AS A STATE HOLIDAY WE’LL CONTINUE TO FOLLOW THE DATA AND THE METRICS THE NUMBER OF HOSPITALIZATIONS, LOWEST LEVEL SINCE WE STARTED, AMEN, 1400 NUMBER OF DEATHS 17 DEATHS IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK 17 LOWEST NUMBER SINCE WE STARTED I WOULD FEEL, THE ONLY WAY I COULD FEEL BETTER IS IF THAT NUMBER EVER BECOMES 0. BUT, 17, WE REMEMBER IN OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS THE NUMBER 17 OF LIVES LOST, THIS IS GREAT NEWS COMPARED TO WHERE WE’VE BEEN LOWEST LEVEL ON THE THREE-DAY ROLLING AVERAGE THERE’S THE MOUNTAIN THERE IT IS WE WERE ALWAYS WONDERING ABOUT THE CONFIGURATION ABOUT THAT MOUNTAIN WHAT DID IT LOOKS LIKE, HOW HIGH WAS IT GOING UP WHEN WOULD IT CREST, WHAT WAS THE PLATEAU AND HOW DO WE FLATTEN THE CURVE HOW LONG WOULD IT TAKE US TO GET DOWN AND THEN TO ADD TO THE GOOD NEWS, WE ALMOST HAVE TOO MUCH GOOD NEWS, WE DID ABOUT 60,000 TESTS YESTERDAY PUT THAT IN CONTEXT 60,000 TESTS ON ONE DAY NO STATE IN THE UNITED STATES IS DOING THAT 60,000 TESTS ACROSS THE STATE THE NUMBER WHO TESTED POSITIVE, LESS THAN 1% THAT IS THE LOWEST PERCENTAGE OF POSITIVE THAT WE HAVE HAD SINCE WE HAVE STARTED, PERIOD THAT IS ONE OF THE LOWEST LEVELS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND WE ONCE AGAIN HAVE DEMONSTRATED THAT WE HAVE GONE FROM THE FIRST INFECTION RATE IN THE COUNTRY TO THE BEST INFECTION RATE IN THE COUNTRY JUST THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A MINUTE THOSE ARE NOT WORDS THOSE ARE POWERFUL FACTS WE HAD THE WORST INFECTION RATE THE RATE OF TRANSMISSION WAS THE HIGHEST WE NOW, HAVE THE LOWEST RATE OF TRANSMISSION JUST THINK ABOUT WHAT THIS STATE ACCOMPLISHED WHAT THE PEOPLE OF THIS STATE ACCOMPLISHED AND IF I TOLD YOU 108 DAYS AGO, WE WERE GOING TO ACCOMPLISH THAT, WHAT WOULD WE HAVE SAID? WHAT WOULD I HAVE SAID? I WOULD HAVE SAID I DIDN’T BELIEVE IT I WOULD HAVE SAID I DIDN’T BELIEVE IT WAS POSSIBLE BUT, FACTS ARE FACTS AND YOU LOOK AT THERE’S FACTS, AND I’M TELLING YOU TODAY, THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS MAKING A MISTAKE AND IT IS MAKING AN HISTORIC MISTAKE AND THAT IS NOT A POLITICAL COMMENT THAT IS A FACT BASED OBJECTIVE COMMENT. 3 THAT THIS FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS MAKING A MISTAKE ON THE WAY IT IS HANDLING THIS COVID-19 CRISIS AND HOW IT IS NOW ADVISING STATES AND THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION ON THE FACTS, IT IS A MISTAKE WE HAD THE POLITICAL DEBATE HOW DO WE REOPEN? WE SHOULD JUST REOPEN IMMEDIATELY THIS IS ALL OVERBLOWN, IT’S FINE THAT WAS THEORY A. RIGHT? IT WAS A PARTISAN DIVIDE TO IT MORE CONSERVATIVES ARGUED THAT AND THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD GET OUT OF THE WAY AND LET THE FREE MARKET DO IT THAT WAS THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, NEW YORK POST, CONSERVATIVE THEORY JUST OPEN THE DOORS AND THEN THERE WAS ANOTHER THEORY, LET’S REOPEN BASED ON DATA LET’S NOT JUST REOPEN BLINDLY AS AN EXPRESSION OF POLITICAL IDEOLOGY WE’RE DEALING WITH A VIRUS, THE VIRUS DOESN’T HAVE A POLITICAL IDEOLOGY

NO DOCTOR EVER SAID TO ME, OH, WE DID A COVID-19 TEST, FOUND OUT IT WAS CONSERVATIVE, FOUND OUT IT WAS LIBERAL IT’S A VIRUS, IT MOVES AS A MATTER OF SCIENCE BUT, THERE WERE TWO THEORIES WE TESTED THE TWO THEORIES WE WENT INTO THE LABORATORY, WE TESTED THE TWO THEORIES AND NOW, YOU HAVE NUMBERS AND NUMBERS DON’T LIE YOU HAVE 20 STATES WHERE YOU HAVE THE COVID-19 VIRUS INCREASING AS A MATTER OF NUMBERS FACT LOOK AT THE HEADLINES, THE COVID-19 IS INCREASING IN 20 STATES ACROSS THE COUNTRY THE STATES WITHOUT THE SMART REOPENING PLANS ARE GOING UP THAT IS A FACT IT’S NOT A DEMOCRATIC FACT OR REPUBLICAN FACT THERE ARE NO DEMOCRATIC FACTS AND REPUBLICAN FACTS THEY’RE JUST FACTS THERE ARE NO DEMOCRATIC FACTS OR REPUBLICAN FACTS THAT’S A FACT WHAT’S THE INTEREST IN THE NATION WE’RE AMERICANS AND WE CARE ABOUT OTHER AMERICANS AND ON A PAROCHIAL LEVEL, IF THOSE STATES ARE GOING UP, THEY COULD SPREAD THE VIRUS TO NEW YORK THEY HAVE A HIGHER RATE OF INFECTION THAN NEW YORK WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THOSE PEOPLE GET ON PLANES AND FLY TO NEW YORK? THAT’S HOW WE GOT HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE, RIGHT? PEOPLE LANDING ON OUR AIRPORTS SO, WE DID HAVE A SELFISH INTEREST SAME INTEREST THAT SO MANY STATES EXPRESSED WHEN WE WERE AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS AND THEY WERE WORRIED ABOUT NEW YORKERS GOING TO OUR STATES, RIGHT? >> WE LIVED THROUGH THAT WELL, NOW, IT’S THE IN VERSE, NOW, PEOPLE ARE GETTING ON PLANES, THEY’RE TRAVELING, THEY COULD BE BRINGING THE VIRUS TO NEW YORK WELL, YOU HEAR FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THE NUMBERS ARE GOING UP BECAUSE THEY’RE DOING MORE TESTING THAT IS JUST NOT TRUE AS A MATTER OF FACT, AS A MATTER OF MATHEMATICS, AS A MATTER OF THE DATA THAT IS JUST NOT A TRUE STATEMENT FORGET THE TESTING HOSPITALIZATIONS ARE GOING UP THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE GOING INTO HOSPITALS IS GOING UP HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THAT? ARE THEY PRETENDING TO BE SICK? ARE THEY NOT REALLY SICK? AND YOU SEE THE NUMBER OF HOSPITALIZATIONS GOING UP IN THOSE PLACES WHERE THE PERCENTAGE IS GOING UP AND TESTING FIRST THEIR ARGUMENT ON TESTING DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE NOT ONLY IS TESTING GOING UP, BUT THE AMOUNT OF POSITIVE IS GOING UP PUT THAT ASIDE BECAUSE IT’S COMPLICATED FOR PEOPLE PEOPLE WALKING INTO THE HOSPITALS ARE GOING UP WHICH BY DEFINITION MEANS MORE PEOPLE ARE GETTING SICK OTHERWISE MORE PEOPLE DON’T GO INTO HOSPITALS THAT’S ARIZONA, THAT’S TEXAS, AND BY THE WAY, IT TRACKS WITH THE INCREASE IN THE TESTING, BUT IT IS UNDENIABLE, BUT MORE PEOPLE ARE GETTING SICK WITH MORE PEOPLE GOING INTO HOSPITALS NEW YORK, THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE GOING INTO HOSPITALS IS GOING DOWN THE PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE GETTING IS BEING IS GOING DOWN WHEN I SAY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS MAKING A MISTAKE, THESE POLICIES HAVE REAL CONSEQUENCES THIS IS A MOMENT IN HISTORY WHERE IT’S NOT GOING TO BE ABOUT THE PARTISAN DIVIDE WHEN THEY WRITE THE BOOKS THEY’LL TALK ABOUT THE ABSURD POLITICS THERE’S GOING TO BE REAL LIFE AND DEATH CONSEQUENCES TO THIS THEY ARE NOW PROJECTING BY THE MODEL THAT THE WHITE HOUSE USES, THEY HAVE INCREASED THEIR PROJECTIONS TO SHOW ALMOST 90,000 MORE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DIE BY AUGUST 90,000 WITH THESE PROJECTION MODELS

DO, IS THEY CHANGE THEIR PROJECTION WHEN THE FACTS CHANGE IN OTHER WORDS, WHEN THEY SEE NUMBERS GOING UP IN STATES, THEY INCREASE THEIR PROJECTION SO, THEY WATCH TODAY’S NUMBERS, THEY SEE MORE HOSPITALIZATIONS THEY THEN INCREASE THEIR PROJECTED DEATHS BECAUSE THEY SEE MORE PEOPLE GOING INTO THE HOSPITALS SO THEY INCREASE THEIR PROJECTED DEATHS IN APRIL, THEY PROJECTED 60,000 DEATHS BY AUGUST MAY, THEY PROJECTED 134,000 DEATHS NOW, THEY’RE PROJECTING 149,000 DEATHS WHY? BECAUSE THEY’RE SEEING THE VIRUS INCREASE AND THEY’RE SEEING THE HOSPITALIZATIONS GO UP SO, THIS FEDERAL POLICY HAS INCREASED THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO THEY PROJECT TO DIE BY ALMOST 90,000 IT’S NOT A DEMOCRATIC PROJECTION, IT’S NOT A REPUBLICAN PROJECTION IT’S THE PROJECTION OF THE MODEL FUNDED BY GATES WHICH IS RELIED UPON BY THE WHITE HOUSE 90,000 PEOPLE I THINK ABOUT THAT 90,000 PEOPLE WELL, THAT’S THE COSTS WE HAVE TO PAY TO GET THE ECONOMY BACK UP AND RUNNING REALLY? THAT HASN’T HELPED THE ECONOMY WHEN THE VIRUS GOES UP, THE FINANCIAL MARKETS GO DOWN WHEN THE VIRUS GOES UP, CONSUMER CONFIDENCE GOES DOWN WHEN THE VIRUS SPREAD GOES UP, PEOPLE GET MORE NERVOUS AND LESS CONFIDENT ABOUT GOVERNMENT AND ABOUT THE PLAN, AND ABOUT THEIR FUTURE IT’S REAL GOOD, INVEST IN AMERICA OH, MORE PEOPLE ARE DYING OH WE’RE REOPENING, BUT IT’S ACTUALLY INCREASING THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS BUT, FEEL GOOD, COME OUT AND SHOP AND SHOP PEOPLE AREN’T STUPID PEOPLE AREN’T STUPID THEY’RE NOT >>> IN NEW YORK, WE STAY CHARLOTTE BEING SMART WAS A ROCKLAND INTERFACE 3, AND LONG ISLAND IS ON TRACK FOR WEDNESDAY NEW YORK CITY IS ON TRACK FOR MONDAY, NEW YORK CITY CITY WILL BE IN PHASE 1 FOR 14 DAYS AND YOU LOOK AT ALL OF THE NUMBERS, ALL OF THE NUMBERS ARE GOOD YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS OF TESTS, THE POSITIVE TESTS, YOU LOOK AT IT FROM THE POINT OF REOPENING, THE NUMBERS ARE GOOD HOSPITALIZATIONS SINCE REOPENING, THE NUMBERS ARE GOOD SO NEW YORK IS ON TRACK TO ENTER PHASE 2 ON MONDAY, THE SAME METRICS WE USE IN NEW YORK CITY, THE SAME METRICS WE’VE USED IN EVERY REGION ACROSS THE STATE AND THEY HAVE ALL SHOWN TO BE ACCURATE AND EFFECTIVE WE DON’T CHANGE THE RULES FOR NEW YORK CITY WE DON’T CHANGE THE RULES FOR LONG ISLAND IT’S ONE SET OF RULES FOR EVERYONE AND THEY HAVE WORKED EVERYWHERE IN THE STATE THEY WORK, WHEN WE ARE RESPONSIBLE IN WHAT WE’RE DOING SO NEW YORK CITY DO WHAT EVERY OTHER REGION HAS DONE THUS FAR EMPLOYEES HAVE TO BE RESPONSIBLE, STORE OWNERS HAVE TO BE RESPONSIBLE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS HAVE TO BE RESPONSIBLE AND DO THEIR JOB THEY HAVE TO HAVE THEIR TESTING IN PLACE THEIR TESTING HAS TO BE RAMPING UP PRT OF THE PHASING IS ALLOWING THE LOCAL GOVERNMENTS TO INCREASE THEIR CAPACITY TO HANDLE THE ADDITIONAL BURDEN THEY LIKE TO LEAVE THAT OUT THE ROLE FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENTS HAS BEEN GOING UP, EVERY TIME YOU HIT A NEW PHASE THEY HAVE TO HAVE MORE SOPHISTICATED TRACING AND TESTING AND MORE SOPHISTICATED

COMPLIANCE BECAUSE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE ARE COMING UP THE PHASES ARE NOT JUST AUTOMATIC THE PHASES ARE ALLOWING THE LOCAL GOVERNMENTS TO GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER AND THEY HAVE TO BECAUSE THIS ONLY WORKS IF THE BUSINESS OWNERS ARE EDUCATED AND READY AND IF THEY HAVE THE PLANS IN PLACE AND IF THE EMPLOYEES ARE READY AND IF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENTS ARE READY TODAY I’LL BE SIGNING LEGISLATION TO PROTECT THE RIGHTS OF HEALTH CARE WORKERS WHO SPEAK OUT QUOTE UNQUOTE WHISTLE BLOWERS SHOULD BE PROTECTED AND NEW YORK HAS CLIMBED THE MOUNTAIN AND IT WAS THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK I’M GOING TO DECLARE THE COVID- 19, THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK IT DOESN’T REALLY EXIST, BUT IT’S A MOUNTAIN TO ME AND MANY PEOPLE IT WAS A MOUNTAIN LIKE ANY OTHER THAT WE HAD TO CLIMB BECAUSE IT WENT STRAIGHT UP AND YOU COULDN’T SO MUCH THE TOP BECAUSE THE TOP WAS IN THE CLOUDS, BUT THE ONLY STRATEGY WAS EVERY DAY TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP, TAKE THE NEXT STEP, TAKE THE NEXT STEP, TAKE THE NEXT STEP IT WAS HARD, EXHAUSTING BUT IT HURT YOU’LL FIND THE TOP EVEN IF YOU CAN’T SEE THE TOP JUST KEEP CLIMBING YOU’LL FIND THE TOP, ALMOST BLIND FAITH WE DETERMINED THE TOP BY FLATTENING THE CURVE IF YOU FLATTEN THE CURVE, YOU CREATE THE PLATEAU, THE CREST WE HAD TO COME DOWN THE OTHER SIDE AND THAT WAS A LONG JOURNEY IT WAS ABOUT 42 DAYS UP THE MOUNTAIN, ABOUT 66 DAYS DOWN THE MOUNTAIN WHEN YOU LOOK BACK WHO IS COUNTING? I WAS COUNTING EVERY DAY CATEGORY 3 CLIMBED THE MOUNTAIN AND WE’RE ON THE OTHER SIDE THERE ARE OTHER MOUNTAINS TO CLIMB AND REMEMBER THAT WE DIDN’T CREATE THIS MOUNTAIN WE DIDN’T CREATE THIS CRISIS THIS CRISIS WAS CREATED BECAUSE THE VIRUS DID NOT COME FROM CHINA IT DID NOT COME FROM CHINA MISTAKE THE VIRUS CAME FROM EUROPE THE VIRUS CAME FROM ITALY THE VIRUS CAME FROM FRANCE THE VIRUS CAME FROM SPAIN HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? I NEVER HEARD THAT I KNOW BECAUSE NOBODY EVER SAID THAT NOBODY EVER TOLD US THE VIRUS LEFT CHINA AND WENT TO EUROPE THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED THIS PAST JANUARY AND THEN THE VIRUS CAME HERE FROM EUROPE JANUARY, FEBRUARY, MARCH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DIDN’T DO A EUROPEAN TRAVEL BAN UNTIL WHEN? MARCH 16TH, JANUARY, FEBRUARY, MARCH, HOW MANY FLIGHTS FLEW INTO JFK AND HOW MANY PEOPLE CAME? 3MILLION 3MILLION JFK, NEWARK INTERNATIONAL DID WE SCREEN THOSE PEOPLE? FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DIDN’T SCREEN THERE’S PEOPLE BECAUSE THE VIRUS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE IN CHINA ACCORDING TO THEM THAT’S HOW THE CRISIS WAS CREATED IN NEW YORK THAT’S WHY NEW YORK HAD THE HIGH INFECTION RATE IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH NEW YORKERS IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH A BLUE STATE IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING ABOUT NEW YORK IT’S BECAUSE WE WERE MISLED WE WERE MISINFORMED AND THE VIRUS WAS COMING FROM EUROPE THAT’S WHAT CREATED THE CRISIS THE CREATION AND THEN WE HAD THE WORST CRISIS IN THE NATION AND THEN WE WERE LEFT ON OUR OWN BY AND LARGE BUT, WE MANAGED IT IT IS A LESSON THAT WILL GO DOWN IN THE HISTORY BOOKS AND A LOT OF LESSONS FOR US TO LEARN ON MANY LEVELS BUT, WE DID IT AND IN MANY WAYS WE SHOULD BE

INVIGORATED BECAUSE OF IT THAT WHICH DOESN’T KILL YOU, CAN MAKE YOU STRONGER WE ARE STRONGER FOR IT I BELIEVE THAT WE’RE STRONGER AS A COMMUNITY AND NOW, WE HAVE OTHER SITUATIONS THAT WE HAVE TO CONFRONT, OTHER MOUNTAINS TO CLIMB, BUT WE HAVE CONFIDENCE AFTER THE LAST THING WE HAVE BEEN THROUGH AND WE WILL CLIMB THOSE OTHER MOUNTAINS AND WE WILL DO IT TOGETHER BECAUSE WE ARE NEW YORK TOUGH AND SMART AND UNITED AND DISCIPLINED AND LOVING AND WE ARE EMPOWERED TO DO THAT AND I LOOK FORWARD TO DOING THAT, NOW THAT WE ARE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS MOUNTAIN, WE’LL CLIMB NEW MOUNTAINS TOGETHER AND THERE ARE MANY NEW MOUNTAINS TO CLIMB FOR ME, SEEING THOSE NUMBERS BACK DOWN, WE WENT UP, WE CAME DOWN, AND WE’RE BACK WHERE WE SHOULD BE MEANS WE HAVE TO MOVE ON, STAY VIGILANT, COULD COME BACK, IF YOU DON’T STAY SMART, IT WILL COME BACK IT COULD BE A SECOND WAVE BUT, WE DID WHAT WE HAD TO DO, MY FRIENDS, AND WE DID IT TOGETHER, AND WE DID IT EVERY DAY AND NOW WE’RE GOING TO MOVE ON TO OTHER THINGS THESE DAILY BRIEFINGS, WHILE FUN, TAKE A LOT OF TIME AND I’M GOING TO FINISH THE DAILY I’M SURE THEY WILL OFTEN BE NECESSARY WE ARE GOING TO TURN THE PAGE ON THE IMMEDIACY OF THIS CRISIS I HOPE PEOPLE LEARN FROM WHAT WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED HERE IN NEW YORK LOOK AT NEW YORK AND I HOPE THEY ASK HOW DID WE DO THAT? HOW DID WE GO FROM THE WORST SITUATION IN TERMS OF TRANSMISSION TO THE BEST HOW DID THEY DO THAT? I HOPE THEY LOOK AROUND AND SAY, HOW CAN ALL OF THESE STATES BE GOING UP AND NEW YORK IS GOING DOWN? HOW CAN THAT BE? I THOUGHT NEW YORK HAD SUCH A TERRIBLE PROBLEM ALL OF THAT DENSITY AND CROWDING HOW IS NEW YORK GOING DOWN AND OUR STATES ARE GOING UP? WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT WE ARE DOING AND WHAT NEW YORK IS DOING? ISN’T THAT PECULIAR? HOW CAN NEW YORK BE GOING DOWN? AND WE ARE GOING UP THAT WOULD BE THE LOGICAL QUESTION TO ASK AND THERE IS A LOGICAL ANSWER AND THAT ANSWER CAN SAVE LIVES WE HAVE SAVED TENS OF THOUSANDS OF LIVES IN NEW YORK AND THAT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANY OF THIS OTHER STUFF I SIGNED THE EXECUTIVE ORDER QUESTIONS? SPARK IN TERMS OF SAVING LIVES, THERE HAVE BEEN ABOUT 600 TO CONFIRMED AND ASSUMED DEATHS AT NURSING HOMES AND THOSE THAT HAVE STUDIED THEM THEY SAID THAT PERHAPS THE MARCH 25 DIRECTIVE THAT WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT POTENTIALLY CONTRIBUTED TO MORE DEATHS THAN MIGHT HAVE BEEN SEEN IN NEW YORK WHO ADVISED YOU AND THE COMMISSIONER REGARDING THAT MARCH 25 DIRECTIVE AND YOU REGRET PUTTING THAT INTO PLAY? >> LET’S DO THIS ONE MORE TIME I UNDERSTAND THE POLITICS ON THE ISSUE I UNDERSTAND WHAT THE REPUBLICANS SAY ON THE ISSUE IT IS NOT A COINCIDENCE THAT THIS IS PRIMARILY AN ARGUMENT PUT FORWARD BY REPUBLICANS THAT IS A FACTUAL STATEMENT FACTUALLY, IT IS YOU LOOK AT THE CONGRESSIONAL MEMBERS THAT PUT IT FORWARD THEY ARE REPUBLICAN CONGRESSIONAL MEMBERS YOU LOOK AT THE COLUMNIST WHO PUT IT FORWARD THEY ARE PRIMARILY REPUBLICAN CONSERVATIVE COLUMNIST THAT IS A FACT AND HERE IS THE FACT TO THEM WE FOLLOWED FEDERAL CDC GUIDANCE IF THEY WANT TO START WITH AN

ANALYSIS OF A RETROSPECT AND RETROSPECT, START WITH THE FIRST FACTOR WHY DID THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT GAVE THAT GUIDANCE TO STATES? THAT IS THE ONLY RELEVANT QUESTION IF YOU WANT TO GO DOWN THAT ROAD >> FOLLOW-UP GOVERNOR BUT THEN WHY DID YOU LISTEN TO THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT OR OTHER STATE PROFESSIONALS, STATE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS YOU JUST THE PAST HALF HOUR TALKING ABOUT HOW THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WAS MISTAKEN >> IF YOU ASK, WE DID, IF YOU ASK PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS FIRST THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT GAVE THEIR GUIDANCE AND THEN IF YOU ASK PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS ACROSS THE BOARD, WHEN A PERSON IS NO LONGER, NO LONGER A SENIOR CITIZEN NEEDS A HOSPITAL, AS IT INTELLIGENT AND IN THE INTEREST OF THAT PATIENT TO LEAVE THEM IN A HOSPITAL BED FOR TWO WEEK AT A TIME WHEN THEY ARE PROBABLY NO LONGER CONTAGIOUS BUT NOT YET TESTING NEGATIVE THEY WILL SAY TO YOU IT IS HIGHLY RISKY TO LEAVE THAT PERSON IN A HOSPITAL BED FOR TWO WEEKS WHILE COVID-19 IS RAGING AND THEY ARE SUSCEPTIBLE BECAUSE THE LIKELIHOOD OF NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES TO THEM IS MORE LIKELY IF THEY STAY IN A HOSPITAL BED THEY WILL SAY THAT A NURSING HOME IS A BETTER ENVIRONMENT IF THE NURSING HOME CAN PROVIDE ADEQUATE SAFE CARE WHERE THEY CARE FOR THAT COVID- 19 PERSON IN A WAY THAT PROTECTS THE OTHER PEOPLE IN THE FACILITY EVEN THOUGH THAT SENIOR CITIZEN MAY NOT BE CONTAGIOUS AT THAT POINT AND THE CONDITION OF THE NURSING HOME ACCEPTING THAT PERSON WAS THAT THE NURSING HOME SAID, WE CAN TAKE THAT PERSON AND TREAT THAT PERSON AND GIVE THAT PERSON THE TREATMENT THAT THEY NEED AND WE CAN DO IT IN A WAY THAT PROTECTS THE OTHER PEOPLE IN OUR FACILITY THEY WOULD ALL SAY THAT WAS THE BEST PATH FOR THAT SENIOR CITIZEN THEY WOULD ALL SAY, DON’T LIVE LEAVE A PERSON IN A HOME FOR TWO WEEKS YOU CAN GET SICK BEING IN THE HOSPITAL, BELIEVE IT OR NOT SEPSIS OR ETC SO, GET THAT PERSON OUT OF THE HOSPITAL AS SOON AS YOU CAN THE PERSON IS PROBABLY IN A STAGE OF THE DISEASE WHERE THE PERSON IS NOT CONTAGIOUS THEY JUST HAVE NOT TESTED BELOW THE ANTIBODY LEVEL TO BE NEGATIVE IF THE NURSING HOME SAYS THEY CAN TAKE THAT PERSON AND PROTECT THE OTHERS THAT WAS THE SYSTEM IN EVERY CASE IN EVERY CASE NEW YORK STATE IS 35th IN THE NATION 35th IN THE NATION IN TERMS OF PERCENTAGE OF NURSING HOME DEATHS 35th IN THE NATION SO, THE MR. GOODWIN, THE MR McMANUS OF THE WORLD, FIND A DIFFERENT ARGUMENT OR START WITH THE FACTS IT WAS GUIDANCE FROM MR. TRUMP >> HAVE YOU TALKED TO ANYONE FROM THE MEDICAL SOCIETY? IS THAT YOUR OPINION DOCTOR? >> I WOULD ADD ONE POINT PERHAPS WE SHOULD LOOK AT THE HARVARD EXPERT WHO MENTIONED THAT THIS IS FROM ASYMPTOMATIC PEOPLE IN THE NURSING HOMES LIKE WORKERS >> DO YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITHOUT THE STATE DEPARTMENT HAS CHANGED DATA HOW COME YOU HAVE STOPPED REPORTING THE PEOPLE THAT WERE FROM NURSING HOMES THAT DIED IN HOSPITALS WHY DID YOU CHANGE THAT? >> THAT DATA IS IN THE HOSPITALIZATION DATA

>> YOU CAN GO ONLINE AND SEE ALL OF THE DATA >> YOU ALSO STOPPED INCLUDING THE TOP LINE >> YOU CAN EITHER TALK TO HARVARD OR PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS LIKE McMANUS AND GOOD ONE >> WHEN YOU ACTUALLY LOOK AT THE NURSING HOME BY NURSING HOME BREAKDOWN, YOU SEE NO CORRELATION BETWEEN THE READMISSIONS AND THE DEATHS THERE ARE A NUMBER OF HOSPITALS WERE THERE HAVE BEEN NO READMISSIONS AND UP TO 50 DEATHS WHILE OTHERS THERE ARE FIVE READMISSIONS AND THEN 10 DEATHS THERE IS NO CORRELATION WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE INDIVIDUALIZED HOSPITAL DATA FURTHERMORE THE DIRECTIVE THAT CAME OUT WAS NOT AN EXECUTIVE ORDER IT WAS DONE WITH THE DOH AFTER CONSULTATION WITH OTHERS HE THING THAT THE GOVER REFERENCED FROM THE REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS IS THERE ARE A HANDFUL OF REPUBLICANS DIRECTING THAT AT STATES WITH DEMOCRATIC GOVERNORS IT IS LIKELY THAT WE WILL SEE ANOTHER WAVE SO WHAT ARE WE LEARNING, HOW DO WE DEAL WITH IT AND HOW DO WE GO FORWARD IN A PRODUCTIVE WAY AND PART OF THAT HAS TO RELY ON INTERNATIONAL EXPERTS AND THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT >> [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ] ARE YOU GOING TO REQUIRE THE SAME FOR STATE TROOPERS AND OTHER POLICE DEPARTMENTS ACROSS THE STATE? >> I DON’T THINK WE SHOULD BE DOING THIS PIECEMEAL YOU HAVE ALL SORTS OF PIECEMEAL PROPOSALS THAT ARE OUT THERE I AM NOT COMMENTING ON MAYOR DiBLASIO I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT THE ONES THAT YOU MENTIONED BUT ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY PEOPLE DO PIECEMEAL SUGGESTIONS WHICH ARE NICE BUT NOT ESPECIALLY HELPFUL NO TEARGAS, NO RUBBER BULLETS CUT THE BUDGET 100,000 CUT IT 1 BILLION REDUCE STAFF 20% DEMILITARIZED POLICE OKAY LET’S DEAL WITH THE MOST INTELLIGENT EFFECTIVE WAY START WITH A BLANK PIECE OF PAPER AND DESIGN YOUR POLICE FORCE THIS IS 2020 WE HAVE NOT REDESIGNED THE POLICE FORCE FUNDAMENTALLY FOR DECADES LET’S GET ALL OF THE STAKEHOLDERS IN THE ROOM AND LET’S DESIGN IT WHAT IS THE FUNCTION OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT FIRST QUESTION, WHAT DO WE WANT IT TO DO? SUCK IT QUESTION, WHAT DO WE WANT IT NOT TO DO? SECOND QUESTION, WHAT DO WE WANT IT NOT TO DO HOW MUCH WILL IT COST TO PUT TOGETHER THAT DEPARTMENT WHAT LESSONS LEARNED FROM THESE PAST EPISODES DO WE WANT TO TAKE TO HEART WHAT IS THE USE OF FORCE POLICY? WHEN WE SAY DEMILITARIZED POLICE, WHAT DO WE MEAN? HOW DO WE WANT THEM TO HANDLE PROTEST YOU HAVE SEEN TERRIBLE FOOTAGE HOW DO WE WANT THEM TO HANDLE PROTEST? HOW DO WE WANT THEM SUPERVISED? WHAT IS THE DISCIPLINARY PROCESS? DO WE HAVE BODY CAMERAS? HOW OFTEN DO WE PUBLISH THE BODY CAMERA FOOTAGE? HOW DO WE HANDLE COMPLAINTS? COMPLAINTS COME IN — WHO SHOULD REVIEW THEM? WHEN SHOULD THEY GO ONLINE? WHAT SHOULD THIS POSITION BE? THAT IS HOW TO USE THIS MOMENT TO MAKE ONE LITTLE CHANGE IN THE STRUCTURE, POINT IS DIFFERENT YOU HAVE TO START WITH THE FOUNDATION AND BUILDUP BUT THE FOUNDATION IS THE PROBLEM BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT THE FOUNDATION IS? YOU KNOW WHAT THE FOUNDATION OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT RESTS ON? TWO PILLARS RESPECT AND TRUST THOSE ARE THE TWO PILLARS EVERYTHING RESTS ON THOSE TWO PILLARS AND YOU KNOW THE PROBLEM, THOSE TWO PILLARS ARE CRACKED SO, START WITH THE RESPECT PILLAR AND THE TRUST PILLAR ON THE FOUNDATION THEN YOU BUILDUP THE UNIFORMS AND WHAT CARS AND SO ON

BUT START WITH THE PILLARS >> ARE YOU GOING TO BE REQUIRING STATE TROOPERS TO RELEASE DISCIPLINARY RECORDS ONLINE? >> YES WE ARE GOING TO GO THROUGH THE SAME PROCESS >> WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE EXISTING HOLIDAYS, WHY DID IT TAKE SO LONG FOR JUNETEENTH TO BE RECOGNIZED THAT IS A PRETTY SIGNIFICANT EVENT THE STATE HAS AN MLK DAY YOU ALSO CONSIDER EIGHT JUNETEENTH CELEBRATION? >> LIVE AND LEARN SOCIETY PROGRESSES WE CHANGE WE EVOLVE AND HOPEFULLY WE CHANGE FOR THE BETTER THROUGH SOME PERIODS OF HISTORY WE DO AND OTHERS WE DO NOT SOME WE GO BACKWARDS BUT I THINK THIS IS A PERIOD WHERE WE COULD SEE MONUMENTAL CHANGE AND I WANT TO BE A FORCE FOR CHANGE AND I WANT TO HELP SYNERGIZE THIS MOMENT WHETHER IT IS REFORM ON THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, WHETHER IT IS AN EXPANDED RACIAL UNDERSTANDING AND SENSITIVITY AND PROGRESS AND IF JUNETEENTH IS PART OF THAT AND THE RECOGNITION OF WHAT HAPPENED AND AN UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT HAPPENED AND ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF THAT, GREAT >> I DON’T NEED TO PLAY THE RACE CARD SO TO SPEAK BUT I CAN TELL YOU THE FUNCTIONAL EQUIVALENT OF THE JULY 4th IS WHAT JUNETEENTH IS TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY AS FAR AS EMANCIPATION GOES SO, WOULD YOU SAY THAT UP TO THIS POINT THE GENERAL PUBLIC AND ELECTED OFFICIALS HAVE A WHOLE HAVE NOT RECOGNIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF THAT? >> I DO NOT THINK IT HAS BEEN RECOGNIZED FOR THE IMPORTANCE THAT IT DENOTES AND THAT IS WHY I AM GOING TO PROPOSE LEGISLATION TO MAKE IT AN OFFICIAL HOLIDAY NEXT YEAR AND THAT IS WHY, THIS YEAR, I AM DOING WHAT I CAN WHAT I CAN DO IS BY EXECUTIVE ORDER, MAKE IT A STATE HOLIDAY FOR EMPLOYEES THE MOST I CAN DO BY EXECUTIVE ORDER AND THEN THE NEXT YEAR I WOULD LIKE TO PASS A LAW TO THAT EFFECT BECAUSE I ACKNOWLEDGE EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE SAYING THIS WOULD BE A FIRST STEP FOR THE STATE IT MAY BE A FIRST STEP NATIONWIDE I DON’T KNOW OF ANY OTHER STATE THAT HAS RECOGNIZED JUNETEENTH THIS WAY I AM NOT FULLY INFORMED SO I WOULD HAVE TO GO BACK AND LOOK BUT I DON’T KNOW THAT ANY STATE HAS DONE THIS I WOULD LOVE TO SEE NEW YORK BE THE FIRST >> HAS THE STATE THOUGHT OF WAYS TO EXTEND THE DACA PROGRAM? >> RIGHT NOW WE HAVE TO SEE WHAT THE COURT SAYS AND IF THERE IS ANY CRACK OR LIGHT FOR STATE ACTION THEN WE WILL TAKE IT LET’S TAKE ONE MORE QUESTION >> PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR CLARIFICATION, TEACHERS ARE LOOKING FOR THAT, WILL SCHOOLS OPEN THIS YEAR? >> WE DO NOT KNOW FOR SURE YET WE NEED TO WAIT AND SEE WHERE THE VIRUS IS WE ARE IN VERY GOOD SHAPE WITH CONTROLLING THE VIRUS IN NEW YORK RIGHT NOW THERE ARE QUESTIONS THOUGH NATIONWIDE I THERE A SECOND WAVE? IS THERE A RESURGENCE? THERE ARE NATIONAL QUESTION MARKS THESE OTHER STATES ARE GOING UP IF PEOPLE FROM FLORIDA GET ON AN AIRPLANE AND COME HERE, WILL WE SEE AN INCREASE THE QUESTION, DID THE PROTESTS SPREAD THE VIRUS OR DID THEY HAPPEN AT A TIME WHERE THE INFECTION RATE WAS SO LOW ALREADY, ABOUT 1% THAT EVEN THOUGH THEY VIOLATED SOCIAL DISTANCING, IT DID NOT HAVE AN EFFECT? QUESTION, WE LOCAL GOVERNMENTS DOTHEIR JOB? ARE THEY DOING THE TRACING AND THE TESTING? AND COMPLIANCE? SO, TO SAY, TODAY, AS WE SIT HERE IN JUNE WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN SEPTEMBER, NOBODY CAN ANSWER THAT QUESTION

AND THINK WHERE WE ARE TODAY AND INTO SEPTEMBER AND THINK THE PERIOD OF TIME GOING BACKWARDS ALL OF THIS TRANSPIRED, THAT MOUNTAIN IS 100 DAYS THAT IS ALL THAT IS 100 DAYS THREE MONTHS, THE WHOLE WORLD CHANGED SO, SEPTEMBER, LET’S GET MORE INFORMATION AND FACTS FIRST >> THAT IS A BIG DECISION CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE — >> [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ] >>> NORTH KOREA IS THREATENING TO SEND TROOPS TO DEMILITARIZED ZONES ALONG THE BORDER WITH SOUTH KOREA AS TENSIONS ARE RISING BETWEEN THE COUNTRIES THIS IS JUST ONE DAY AFTER PYONGYANG BLEW UP A LIAISON OFFICE FREQUENTLY USED FOR MEETINGS BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES >> Reporter: THAT DE FACTO EMBASSY WAS OFFICIALLY KNOWN AS THE LIAISON OFFICE AND IT WAS ESTABLISHED BACK IN 2018 IT STOOD JUST NORTH OF THE MILITARIZED BORDER ACROSS FROM SOUTH KOREA IN A CITY KNOWN AS CAISSON THE NORTH KOREAN STATE MEDIA RELEASE THESE VIDEOS AND PYONGYANG HAS THREATENED TO DO MORE TO DEPLOY MILITARY TROOPS TO BORDER AREAS THAT WERE DEMILITARIZED EARLIER THAT MEANS REBUILDING GUARD POSTS AND STARTING MILITARY EXERCISES

UNVEILED A SWEEPING BILL ON POLICE REFORM MAJORITY LEADER MITCH McCONNELL AND SENATOR TIM SCOTT JUST INTRODUCED THE LEGISLATION ON CAPITOL HILL IT FOCUSES ON CHOKEHOLD BANDS AND NO KNOCK WARRANTS BUT THERE ARE QUESTIONS OVER IF IT GOES FAR ENOUGH, ESPECIALLY AS HOUSE DEMOCRATS GEAR UP TO VOTE ON THEIR OWN POLICE BILL >> RESTORING THE CONFIDENCE THAT COMMUNITIES OF COLOR HAVE IN INSTITUTIONS OF AUTHORITY IF YOU LIVE IN AMERICA THEN YOU KNOW THAT AN OVERWHELMING NUMBER OF OFFICERS WANT TO DO THEIR JOB AND GO HOME TO THEIR FAMILY THIS LEGISLATION ENCOMPASSES THAT SPIRIT IT SPEAKS TO THE FACT THAT WE BELIEVE THAT THE OVERWHELMING NUMBER OF OFFICERS IN THIS NATION ARE GOOD PEOPLE WORKING HARD TRYING TO KEEP ORDER IN THE COMMUNITIES COMMUNITIES OF COLOR AND PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF, I HAVE TOLD MY STORY SEVERAL TIMES I WAS STOPPED SEVEN TIMES IN ONE YEAR BUT I WAS STOPPED THIS YEAR AND I WAS GIVEN A WARNING TICKET FOR FAILING TO USE MY TURN SIGNAL EARLIER IN A LANE CHANGE SO THIS ISSUE CONTINUES THAT IS WHY IT IS IMPORTANT FOR US TO SAY THAT WE HEAR YOU AND WE ARE LISTENING TO YOUR CONCERNS >> SO LET US BRING IN NANCY CORDIS NANCY, WE HAVE THE DEMOCRAT BILL THAT IS BEING FLOATED AND THE REPUBLICAN BILL BEING FLOATED THERE IS A LOT OF OVERLAP BUT IT SEEMS LIKE NEITHER PARTY CAN AGREE ON WHAT THE ROOT CAUSE IS >> I THEY SEE THE PROBLEM DIFFERENTLY OR AT LEAST THEY FEEL IT IS IMPORTANT TO TALK ABOUT THE PROBLEM DIFFERENTLY REPUBLICAN LEADERS, THEY HAVE BEEN VERY CAREFUL NOT TO SAY THAT THEY BELIEVE THAT THERE IS SYSTEMIC RACISM IN A POLICING I THINK PARTIALLY IT MAY BE SOMETHING THAT THEY BELIEVE OR MAYBE SOMETHING THEY BELIEVE WOULD NOT BE POPULAR WITH THEIR BASE TO SAY THAT THEY HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY MULTIPLE TIMES TO WEIGH-IN AT PRESS CONFERENCES LIKE THIS ONE AND IN HEARINGS, THEY HAVE REJECTED LEADER THEY ARE MORE MOVING TOWARDS THE FACT THAT THERE ARE A FEW BAD APPLES AND MOST OFFICERS WANT TO DO THE RIGHT THING THERE IS A FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERENT IN THE RHETORIC THAT IS BEING DISCUSSED ONE THING THEY DO TALK ABOUT IN THE SAME WAY NOW IS THAT THEY ARE BOTH VERY OPEN ABOUT THE FACT THAT AFRICAN-AMERICAN MEN, IN PARTICULAR, HAVE A VERY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE WITH POLICE THAN WHITE MEN AND FRANKLY, ALL OTHER PEOPLE THAT IS SOMETHING THAT IS UNIVERSALLY RECOGNIZED AND DISCUSSED OPENLY THAT IS PART OF THE REASON THAT YOU NOW SEE BOTH DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS SAYING THAT THEY ARE GENUINELY COMMITTED TO REFORM EVEN IF THE WAY THAT THEY GO ABOUT THAT REFORM IS VERY DIFFERENT >> SO WE HEARD SENATOR TIM

SCOTT SAY BETWEEN US AND WHAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE FLOATING AS A BILL, THERE IS A LOT OF OVERLAP I KNOW YOU CAN’T GO EVERYTHING BECAUSE THESE BILLS ARE EXTENSIVE BUT CAN YOU GIVE US THE GENERAL — CAN YOU GIVE US SOME GENERALITIES WHAT IS SIMILAR THAT THE DEMOCRATS WANT AND WHAT ARE SOME KEY DIFFERENCES? >> I THINK THE SIMPLEST WAY TO THINK ABOUT THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THESE TWO BILLS IS THAT THEY HAVE A LOT OF THE SAME GOALS BUT THEY GO ABOUT ACHIEVING THOSE GOALS IN DIFFERENT WAYS SO IN THE DEMOCRATIC BILL THEY TRY TO CHANGE POLICY AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL CHOKE HOLDS BAND, NO KNOCK WARRANTS BAND A NATIONAL REGISTRY FOR OFFICERS WHO AN ACT MISCONDUCT THE REPUBLICAN BILL TRIES TO ACHIEVE SOME OF THOSE GOALS USING FINANCIAL INCENTIVES SO IT SAYS TO LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENTS IF YOU DO NOT BAN CHOKEHOLD YOU WILL LOSE FEDERAL DOLLARS IF YOU DO NOT REPORT YOUR USE OF NO KNOCK WARRANTS TO THE FBI YOU COULD LOSE THAT MONEY IT SAME WITH NOT USING BODY CAMERAS SO, REPUBLICANS, JUST LIKE THEY DO WITH MANY PARTS OF LEGISLATION, THEY HAVE REJECTED THE NOTION THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE TELLING POLICE DEPARTMENTS WANT TO DO IT SHOULD BE INCENTIVIZING THEM TO DO THE RIGHT THING BEYOND THAT THERE ARE SOME BIG DIFFERENCES IN THE GOALS OF THESE PIECES OF LEGISLATION MOST NOTABLY THAT THE DEMOCRATIC BILL WOULD ROLL BACK QUALIFIED IMMUNITY PROTECTIONS THESE ARE PROTECTIONS SO THAT POLICE OFFICERS CANNOT BE SUED FOR WRONGDOING DEMOCRATS SAY THEY HAVE TOO MUCH PROTECTION BUT REPUBLICANS, MANY OF THEM BUT NOT ALL SAY THAT IF YOU ROLLBACK THAT PROTECTION THAT ALL KINDS OF FRIVOLOUS LAWSUITS WILL POP UP AND POLICE OFFICERS WILL HAVE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS OF LEGAL FEES AND WILL NOT EVEN WANT TO GO INTO THE PROFESSION THAT IS MISSING FROM THE TIM SCOTT BILL AND HE IS FRUSTRATED THAT THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND APPARENT AT THIS TIME THEY CAN GET ENOUGH VOTES TO PASS SO THAT PROBLEM IS REALLY NOT TACKLED AT ALL IN HIS BILL >> THE OTHER THING THAT IS INTERESTING TO ME, NANCY, IS THIS DANCING AROUND THE LANGUAGE THAT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES USED YESTERDAY USED BY JOE BIDEN THAT’S OBAMA AND JOE BIDEN IN EIGHT YEARS DID NOTHING TO ADDRESS THE PATTERN OF POLICE BRUTALITY IN AMERICA THAT SIMPLY IS NOT TRUE THERE WERE A NUMBER OF THINGS THAT THE OBAMA AND BIDEN ADMINISTRATION DID INCLUDING OPENING UP 25 FEDERAL INVESTIGATIONS INTO POLICE DEPARTMENTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND THAT DOES NOT SEEM TO BE ADDRESSED IN THIS BILL WHICH IS THE LIMIT THAT OBAMA PUT ON THE 1033 PROGRAM THAT ALLOWED POLICE FORCES ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO PURCHASE MILITARY EQUIPMENT TRUMP ROLLED THAT BACK BECAUSE OF A PROMISE THAT HE MADE TO POLICE UNIONS IN 2016 BUT I DON’T THINK THAT IS ADDRESSED IN THIS BILL >> THAT DOES PUT SOME LIMITATIONS ON THE TRANSFER OF MILITARY EQUIPMENT TO LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENTS IT DOES NOT GO AS FAR AS THE DEMOCRATIC BILL BUT YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT THIS IS A TRICKY ISSUE FOR REPUBLICANS BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT IS SUCH A WILD CARD AND HE HAS SAID SO MANY THINGS THAT RUN COUNTER TO THE TRUTH ON THIS ISSUE BUT ALSO COUNTER TO SOME OF THEIR GOALS BUT YET THEY DON’T WANT TO ALIENATE HIM BECAUSE IF THEY ARE ABLE TO PASS LEGISLATION THEY NEED HIM TO SIGN IT SO THEY HAVE TURNED THE OTHER CHEEK WHEN HE SAYS THINGS ABOUT POLICING THAT ARE INSENSITIVE BECAUSE THEY FEEL THAT THEY NEED HIM ON THEIR SIDE AT THE END OF THE DAY >> NANCY CORDES, THANK YOU, SO MUCH >>> THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IS SUING JOHN BOLTON, THE FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR, OVER HIS NEW BOOK IT IS BEING PUBLISHED BY SIMON AND SHUSTER WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE LATEST COMING OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE ON THIS WITH PAULA REED TYPICALLY THESE BOOKS ARE NOT PUBLISHED UNLESS THEY HAVE GOTTEN A ONCE OVER BY THE

IN TOO MANY PLACES, WE HAVE ONLY INVESTED IN LAW ENFORCEMENT AS A SOLUTION AND THAT CANNOT HAPPEN >> YOU ARE SAYING THE MONEY COMES FROM ONE POT AND HAS TO BE DIVVIED UP FROM THAT ONE POT AND WE NEED TO RETHINK THE WAY WE ARE DIVVYING IT UP? >> IF YOU LOOK AT STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, IT’S DIFFERENT IN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENTS >> THAT IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT, THE LOCAL LEVEL THEY HAVE LIMITED FUNDS, CORRECT? >> RIGHT SO, YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT FIRST OF ALL, HOW MUCH OF THE POLICE BUDGET TAKES UP A CITY’S BUDGET?
