VICE PRESIDENT, EVERY DAY, MY WIFE AND I ARE IN DISBELIEF AT THE LACK OF COORDINATED FEDERAL ACTION ON COVID-19 WE KNOW THAT YOUR ADMINISTRATION WOULD FOLLOW THE SCIENCE MY QUESTION FOR YOU IS TWO PARTS FIRST, LOOKING BACKWARDS TO WHEN THIS COUNTRY FIRST BECAME AWARE OF COVID-19, WHAT WOULD FOLLOWING THE SCIENCE HAVE MEANT IN TERMS OF ACTUAL POLICY? AND THEN LOOKING FORWARD, WHAT WOULD YOUR ADMINISTRATION DO IN TERMS OF FOLLOWING THE SCIENCE WITH REAL CONCRETE POLICIES THAT HAVEN’T BEEN DONE BY THE CURRENT AND S ADMINISTRATION? >> FIRST OF ALL, GOING BARCK, TE PRESIDENT WAS INFORMED HOW DANGEROUS THIS VIRUS WAS ALL THE WAY BACK IN THE BEGINNING OF FEBRUARY, I ARGUED WE SHOULD BE KEEPING PEOPLE IN CHINA WE SET UP IN OUR ADMINISTRATION A PANDEMIC OFFICE WITHIN THE WHITE HOUSE THERE WERE 44 PEOPLE ON THE GROUND I SUGGESTED WE SHOULD BE SEEKING — AND I DIDN’T HOLD PUBLIC OFFICE I WAS A FORMER VICE PRESIDENT I SUGGESTED WE, IN FACT, ASK — TO HAVE ACCESS TO THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM AND TO THE BEST OF OUR KNOWLEDGE, TRUMP NEVER PUSHED THAT ALL THOSE 44 PEOPLE CAME HOME NO NEVER GOT REPLACED IN ADDITION TO THAT, I THOUGHT IN FEBRUARY, THEY DID A PIECE FOR “USA TODAY” SAYING THIS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM TRUMP DENIED IT HE SAID IT WASN’T WE LATE LEARNED THAT HE KNEW FULL WELL HOW SERIOUS IT WAS WHEN HE DID AN INTERVIEW WITH BOB WOODWARD AT THE TIME, HE SAID HE DIDN’T TELL ANYBODY BECAUSE HE WAS AFRAID AMERICANS WOULD PANIC AMERICANS DON’T PANIC HE PANICKED HE DIDN’T SAY A WORD TO ANYBODY THEN I WROTE A PIECE IN MARCH ABOUT WHAT I THOUGHT WE SHOULD BE DOING TO TAKE HOLD OF THIS, USING THE — THERE’S AN ACT THAT WAS PASSED A LONG TIME AGO THAT ALLOWS THE PRESIDENT TO GO INTO A BUSINESS AND SAY, STOP MAKING THIS AND START MAKING THAT AND IT TOOK A LONG TIME FOR HIM TO EVEN INSTITUTE THAT TO GET VENTILATORS AND SO ON AND SO THE POINT WAS, WE MISSED ENORMOUS OPPORTUNITIES AND KEPT SAYING THINGS THAT WEREN’T TRUE IT’S GOING TO GO AWAY BY EASTER DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT IT’S GOING TO ALL — WHEN THE SUMMER COMES, IT’S ALL GOING TO GO AWAY LIKE A MIRACLE HE’S STILL SAYING THOSE THINGS >> BEFORE YOU GO TO THE FUTURE, CAN I FOLLOW-UP ON LOOKING BACKWARD JUST A LITTLE BIT YOU DID HAVE AN OP-PED IN JANUARY WHERE YOU WARNED OF THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE PANDEMIC THERE’S TO RECORD OF YOU CALLING FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING, LIMITED SOCIAL GATHERINGS, MANDATORY — >> NOT BACK THEN >> IN JANUARY, FEBRUARY

>> IN JANUARY, FEBRUARY, THERE WASN’T THAT CAME AT THE END OF MARCH I LAID OUT A DETAILED PLAN RELATIVE TO SCHOOL OPENINGS IN JUNE AND JULY AND I TALKED ABOUT, BY THAT TIME THE SCIENCE WAS BECOMING CLEAR CLEARER AND CLEARER OF HOW THIS WAS SPREADING SO RAPIDLY THE PRESIDENT KEPT DENYING THAT IF YOU NOTICE FROM MARCH ON, I STOPPED DOING BIG MEETINGS I STARTED WEARING MASKS YOU KNOW, SO IT WAS AT A TIME WHEN THE SCIENCE WAS SAYING, AND HIS KEY PEOPLE, DR. FAUCI, WERE SAYING YOU SHOULD BE TAKING THESE PRECAUTIONS SO, WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING NOW, THERE SHOULD BE A NATIONAL STANDARDLEAVING THIS UP — REMEMBER THE PRESIDENT SAID TO THE GOVERNORS, THEY’RE ON THEIR OWN, IT’S NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY, THE GOVERNORS CAN DO WHAT THEY NEED TO DO, NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY IT’S THE PRESIDENTIAL RESPONSIBILITY TO LEAD AND HE DIDN’T DO THAT HE DIDN’T TALK ABOUT WHAT NEEDED TO BE DONE BECAUSE HE KEPT WORRYING, IN MY VIEW, ABOUT THE STOCK MARKET HE WORRIED IF HE TALKED ABOUT HOW BAD THIS COULD BE UNLESS WE TOOK THESE PRECAUTIONARY ACTIONS, THEN, IN FACT, THE MARKET WOULD GO DOWN HIS BAROMETER OF SUCCESS, THE ECONOMY IS THE MARKET THIRDLY, WHAT WE DIDN’T DO IS THE PRESIDENT HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO OPEN AND ALLOW SCHOOLS AND BUSINESSES TO STAY OPEN IF THEY GOT THE KIND OF HELP THEY NEEDED SO THE CONGRESS PASSED A COUPLE TRILLION DOLLARS WORTH OF HELP AND WHAT HAPPENED WAS MOST OF THAT MONEY, SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF THAT MONEYS WENT TO THE VERY WEALTHIEST CORPORATIONS IN THE COUNTRY, DIDN’T GET TO THE MOM AND POP STORES SO YOU HAD ONE IN FIVE, ONE IN SIX MINORITY BUSINESSES CLOSING MANY OF THEM PERMANENTLY PEOPLE BEING LAID OFF AND THEN WHAT HAPPENED WAS WHEN THE FIRST TRANCHE OF THE FIRST ROUND OF MONEY FOR UNEMPLOYMENT, ENHANCED UNEMPLOYMENT, PASSED, WENT BY, HE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING HE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING AND TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, I MEAN THIS SINCERELY, I CAN’T THINK — I’VE BEEN AROUND FOR A LOT OF PRESIDENTS AND YOU KNOW A LOT OF PRESIDENTS IN A CRISIS, I DON’T EVER REMEMBER ONE NEVER CALLING THE HOUSE AND SENATE REPUBLICANS, DEMOCRATS, TOGETHER >> LET’S LOOK FORWARD A LITTLE BIT YOU SAID THAT YOU WOULD LOCK DOWN THE ECONOMY ONLY IF THE SCIENTISTS SAID IT WAS NECESSARY >> BY THE WAY, THAT WASN’T THE CONTEXT HERE I SAID WHAT I LOCKED DOWN THE ECONOMY OF SCIENCE SAID SO, I SAID I’D FOLLOW SCIENCE WHAT I — BUT I DON’T THINK THERE’S A NEED TO LOCK DOWN >> BUT I WANT TO PRESS YOU ON THAT POINT >> SURE >> YOU’VE BEEN IN THE OVAL OFFICE FOR EIGHT YEARS WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA HE WOULD ALWAYS SAY THAT ONLY THE HARDEST SOLVE PROBLEMS WHAT’S MOST LIKELY TO HAPPEN IS THE SCIENTISTS WILL DISAGREE THE SCIENTISTS WILL DISAGREE WITH THE ECONOMISTS SO THE QUESTION IS, HOW ARE YOU GOING TO DECIDE THIS? WHO ARE YOU GOING TO LISTEN TO AND HOW CAN YOU CONTAIN THE PANDEMIC WITHOUT CRUSHING THE ECONOMY? >> WELL, YOU CAN CONTAIN THE PANDEMIC BY BEING RATIONAL AND NOT CRUSH THE ECONOMY FOR EXAMPLE, I LAID OUT A PLAN HOW YOU CAN OPEN BUSINESSES YOU CAN OPEN BUSINESSES AND SCHOOLS IF, IN FACT, YOU PROVIDE THEM THE GUIDANCE THAT THEY NEED AS WELL AS THE MONEY TO BE ABLE TO DO IT WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW IS WE KNOW, FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU CAN OPEN A BUSINESS AND YOU CAN HAVE A SIGN ON THE DOOR SAYING, SAFE TO COME IN, THAT’S WHY PEOPLE AREN’T GOING ANYWHERE EVEN WHEN THEY’RE OPEN AND SAY BECAUSE YOU HAVE SOCIAL DISTANCING, YOU HAVE PLASTIC BARRIERS, WHEN YOU GO TO THE CASHIER, YOU HAVE SEPARATORS BETWEEN THE BOOTHS YOU DON’T HAVE LARGE CROWDS YOU REDUCE THE SIZE — THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE YOU CAN HAVE IN THE RESTAURANT YOU MAKE SURE THERE’S TESTING THAT’S A REALLY CRITICAL PIECE THAT HE DIDN’T DO FESTING AND TRACING YOU MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE ARE EQUIPPED GOING TO SCHOOLS YOU KNOW, WE INITIALLY SAID, THE GOVERNMENT INITIALLY SAID THEY’RE GOING TO PROVIDE MASKS FOR EVERY STUDENT AND EVERY TEACHER THEN THEY SAID, NO, NO, NO, NO, FEMA SAID — THE PRESIDENT OR WHOMEVER SAID, NO, NO, THAT’S NOT A NATIONAL EMERGENCY NOT A NATIONAL EMERGENCY WE NEED FEWER — WE NEED MORE TEACHERS IN OUR SCHOOLS TO BE ABLE TO OPEN SMALLER PODS WE NEED VENTILATION SYSTEMS CHANGED THERE’S A LOT OF THINGS WE KNOW NOW AND I LAID THEM OUT IN SOME DETAIL NOW, AGAIN, WHEN I SAY I LAID THEM OUT, I’M NOT AN OFFICE HOLDER I’M RUNNING FOR OFFICE NOT LIKE I’M STILL VICE PRESIDENT OR I WAS A UNITED STATES SENATOR PUSHING THIS SO I DON’T WANT TO SAY I, I, I, BUT WE DID LAY OUT EXACTLY WHAT NEEDED TO BE DONE AND TAKE A LOOK, WE MAKE UP 4% OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION WE HAVE 20% OF THE WORLD’S DEATHS WE’RE IN A SITUATION WHERE WE HAVE 210,000-PLUS PEOPLE DEAD AND WHAT’S HE DOING? NOTHING HE’S STILL NOT WEARING MASKS SO ON >> WE’RE GETTING SOME OTHER QUESTIONS ON COVID >> SURE >> THIS COMES FROM KELLY LEE H SHE’S FROM PHILADELPHIA >> THANK YOU >> REPUBLICAN VOTED FOR DONALD TRUMP IN 2016 UNDECIDED NOW >> HEY, KELLY, HOW ARE YOU? >> HEY, MR. BIDEN MY QUESTION IS ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS VACCINE >> YES >> OR POTENTIAL SENATOR HARRIS STATED THAT SHE ABSOLUTELY WOULD NOT TAKE A VACCINE FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP AND, OF COURSE, WE ALL KNOW IT’S NOT PRESIDENT TRUMP THAT WOULD CREATE THIS VACCINE IT WOULD BE DOCTORS AND SCIENTISTS THAT PRESUMABLY WE ALL TRUST SO, MY QUESTION FOR YOU IS, IF A VACCINE WERE APPROVED BY —

BETWEEN NOW AND THE END OF THE YEAR, WOULD YOU TAKE IT, AND IF YOU WERE TO BECOME PRESIDENT, WOULD YOU MANDATE THAT EVERYONE HAS TO TAKE IT? >> TWO THINGS NUMBER ONE, PRESIDENT TRUMP TALKS ABOUT THINGS THAT JUST AREN’T ACCURATE ABOUT EVERYTHING FROM VACCINES, WE’RE GOING TO HAVE ONE RIGHT AWAY, IS IT GOING TO HAPPEN, AND SO ON? THE POINT IS THAT IF THE SCIENTISTS, IF THE BODY OF SCIENTISTS SAY IF THIS IS WHAT IS READY TO BE DONE, BEEN TESTED, GONE THROUGH THE THREE PHASES, YES, I’D TAKE IT, ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO TAKE IT PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS THINGS LIKE EVERYTHING FROM CRAZY STUFF HE’S WALKING AWAY FROM NOW, INJECT BLEACH IN YOUR ARM AND THAT’S GOING TO WORK I’M NOT BEING FACETIOUS HE ACTUALLY SAID THESE THINGS AND NOW REGENERON IS THE ANSWER THAT’S GOING TO CURE EVERYTHING 500,000 DOSES WE GOT A COUPLE, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE MORE THAN A FEW MILLION PEOPLE YOU KNOW, AND SO — AND MOST OF — IF YOU NOTICE, MOST OF THE COMPANIES WHO ARE DEVELOPING THESE VACCINES ARE WORKING — THEY’RE MAKING REAL PROGRESS I MEET WITH FOUR LEADING SCIENTISTS, AT LEAST TWICE A WEEK IN THE BEGINNING, FOUR TIMES A WEEK, GIVING US THE DETAIL ON WHAT KIND OF PROGRESS IS BEING MADE AND RIGHT NOW, THEY DO THE RIGHT THING WHEN THEY RUN INTO A SERIOUS PROBLEM, THEY HALT THE TEST THEY DON’T CONTINUE UNTIL THEY FIGURE OUT WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS THEY’RE NOT THERE YET AND THE MOST SCIENTISTS SAY IT’S NOT LIKELY TO HAVE A VACCINE THAT WILL BE AVAILABLE UNTIL THE BEGINNING OF NEXT YEAR END OF THE SPRING OF NEXT YEAR AND IN THE MEANTIME WHAT I WORRY ABOUT IS THE SAME THING WITH REGENERON WHICH IS — WHICH IS A USEFUL ANTIDOTE, NOT ANTIDOTE, A USEFUL TOOL BUT WHAT’S HAPPENING IS THERE IS NO PLAN TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO DISTRIBUTE IT HOW MANY, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE 500,000, YOU KNOW, VIALS OF IT WELL, WE DON’T HAVE ALL THE TESTING EQUIPMENT WE DON’T HAVE ALL THE ABILITY TO GET IT TO THE PEOPLE WHO NEED IT WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING NOW, ALLEGEDLY, IT’S HAPPENING, BUT I’VE NOT SEEN IT YET, NOR THE DOCS THAT I’VE TALKED TO HAVE SEEN IT, THERE SHOULD BE A PLAN WHEN WE HAVE THE VACCINE HOW DO WE DISTRIBUTE IT? >> AND ONCE WE GET IT, IF IT’S SAFE, IF IT’S EFFECTIVE, WILL YOU MANDATE ITS USE? >> THE ANSWER IS DEPENDING ON HOW CLEAR — THERE’S VACCINES, THEY SAY, HAVE A VERY POSITIVE IMPACT AND THEY’RE GOING TO AFFECT POSITIVELY 85% OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC THOSE OTHERS SAY THIS VACCINE IS REALLY THE KEY THIS IS — THIS IS THE GOLDEN KEY IT DEPENDS ON THE STATE OF THE NATURE OF THE VACCINE WHEN IT COMES OUT AND HOW IT’S BEING DISTRIBUTED THAT WOULD DEPEND ON BUT I WOULD THINK THAT WE SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT DEPENDING ON THE CONTINUATION OF THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS, WE SHOULD BE THINKING ABOUT MAKING IT — >> HOW COULD YOU ENFORCE THAT? >> WELL, YOU COULDN’T THAT’S THE PROBLEM JUST LIKE YOU CAN’T ENFORCE MEASLES, YOU CAN’T COME TO SCHOOL UNLESS YOU HAVE A MEASLES SHOT YOU KNOW, YOU CAN’T — BUT YOU CAN SAY EVERYONE HAS TO DO THIS BUT YOU — IT’S LIKE IT CAN’T MANDATE A MASK BUT YOU CAN SAY, GO TO EVERY GOVERNOR AND GET THEM ALL IN A ROOM, ALL 50 OF THEM, WITH THE PRESIDENT, SAY, ASK PEOPLE TO WEAR THE MASK EVERYBODY KNOWS >> AND IF THEY DON’T? >> THEY DON’T — NO, NOT FINE, THEN I’D GO TO EVERY GOVERNOR — I’D GO TO EVERY MAYOR I’D GO TO EVERY COUNCILMAN, I’D GO TO EVERY LOCAL OFFICIAL, SAY, MANDATE THE MASK SAY THIS IS WHAT YOU SHAVE TO D W WHEN YOU’RE OUT MAKE SURE YOU ENCOURAGE IT BEING DONE LOOK, GEORGE, YOU AND I KNOW, I THINK YOU DO, TOO, AS WELL, THE WORDS OF A PRESIDENT MATTER >> ABSOLUTELY WHEN THE PRESIDENT DOESN’T WEAR A MASKING MAKES FUN OF FOLKS LIKE ME WHEN I’M WEARING A MASK FOR A LONG TIME, PEOPLE SAY IT MUST NOT BE THAT IMPORTANT BUT WHEN A PRESIDENT SAYS I THINK THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, FOR EXAMPLE, I WALKED IN HERE WITH THIS MASK, I HAVE AN N-95 MASK UNDER T– I LEFT IN MY DRESSING — MY DRESSING? THE ROOM I WAS IN BEFORE I GOT HERE I THINK IT MATTERS WHAT WE SAY AND WE’RE NOW LEARNING THAT CHILDREN ARE GETTING THE VIRUS NOT AS SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES, BUT WE HAVEN’T — THERE’S BEEN NO STUDIES DONE YET ON VACCINES FOR CHILDREN THERE’S A LONG WAYS TO GO WE CAN MAKE PROGRESS IN THE MEANTIME AND SAVE LIVES THE LAST POINT I’LL MAKE, IF YOU LISTEN TO THE HEAD OF THE CDC, HE STOOD UP AND HE SAID, YOU KNOW, WHILE WE’RE WAITING FOR A VACCINE, HE HELD UP A MASK, YOU WEAR THIS MASK, YOU’LL SAVE MORE LIVES BETWEEN NOW AND THE END OF THE YEAR THAN IF WE HAD A VACCINE THAN IF WE HAD A VACCINE IT’S ESTIMATED BY EVERY MAJOR STUDY DONE FROM UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON, TO COLUMBIA, THAT IF, IN FACT, WE WORE MASKS, WE COULD SAVE BETWEEN NOW AND THE END OF THE YEAR 100,000 LIVES >> AND AVOID LOCKDOWNS? >> AND AVOID LOCKDOWN, YES YOU DON’T HAVE TO LOCKDOWN IF YOU’RE WEARING THE MASK >> LET’S GET A QUESTION ON THE

ECONOMY >> THANK, I HOPE I ANSWERED YOUR QUESTION >> FROM CANONSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA, A SUBURB OF PITTSBURGH >> I KNOW IT >> REPUBLICAN >> THANK YOU, GEORGE, THANK YOU, VICE PRESIDENT YOU STATED ANYONE MAKING LESS THAN $400,000 WILL NOT SEE ONE SINGLE PENNY OF THEIR TAXES RAISED >> THAT’S RIGHT >> ALSO STATE YOU’RE GOING TO ELIMINATE THE TRUMP TAX CUTS THE TRUMP TAX CUTS REDUCES TAXES FOR THE MAJORITY OF WORKERS I WOULD ARGUE NOT ENOUGH WHAT IS YOUR PLAN FOR EITHER EXTENDING THE TAX CUTS FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS OR CREATING A NEW PLAN THAT FURTHER REDUCES THOSE TAXES? >> I CARRY THIS CARD WITH ME WHEN I SAID THE TAX — THE TRUMP TAX CUTS, ABOUT $1.3 TRILLION OF THE $2 TRILLION IN THOSE TAX CUTS WENT TO THE TOP .1 OF 1% THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT ELIMINATING NOT ALL THE TAX CUTS THAT ARE OUT THERE AND BY THE WAY, IF YOU JUST TAKE A LOOK, WE REDUCED THE CORPORATE TAX RATE FROM 35%, DEMOCRATS, REPUBLICANS, WHO WERE IN OFFICE THOUGHT IT SHOULD COME DOWN TO 28% HE REDUCED IT TO 21% YOU HAVE 91 OUT OF — THE FORTUNE 500 COMPANIES NOT PAYING A SINGLE SOLITARY PENNY IF YOU RAISE THE CORPORATE TAX, BACK TO 28%, WHICH IS A FAIR TAX YOU’D RAISE $1,300,000,000 BY THAT ONE ACT IF YOU MADE SURE PEOPLE PAID WHAT THEY DID IN THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION, YOU’D RAISE ANOTHER, GOES UP TO, LET ME GET YOU THE EXACT NUMBER HERE ABOUT ANOTHER 200 — EXCUSE ME, $92 BILLION SO YOU CAN RAISE A LOT OF MONEY TO BE ABLE TO INVEST IN THINGS THAT CAN MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER MAKE YOU CHANGE YOUR STAN DDARDF LIVING BY MAKING SURE YOU HAVE AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE, MAKING SURE YOU’RE IN A SITUATION WHERE YOU’RE ABLE TO SEND YOUR KID TO SCHOOL, IF YOU HAVE STUDENT DEBT, YOU CAN DEAL WITH IT, MAKING SURE THAT YOUR HOME, YOU CAN PAY YOUR MORTGAGE 20 MILLION PEOPLE RIGHT NOW >> MR. VICE PRESIDENT, LET ME PUSH YOU ON THAT >> SURE >> YOU CAN RAISE THE CORPORATE TAX, GOING TO RAISE TAXES ON THE WEALTHY IS IT WISE TO DO EVEN THAT WHEN THE ECONOMY IS AS WEAK AS IT IS RIGHT NOW? ANOTHER — >> ABSOLUTELY >> — 900,000 PEOPLE — >> THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION MOODY’S DID AN ANALYSIS, DETAILED ANALYSIS OF MY TAX PLAN AND MY ECONOMIC PLAN THEY SAID, I WILL IN FOUR YEARS, MOODY’S, WALL STREET, SAID I WILL CREATE 18.6 MILLION NEW JOBS GOOD-PAYING JOBS, NUMBER ONE NUMBER TWO, AND I’LL — THE GDP WILL GROW BY A TRILLION DOLLARS MORE THAN IT WOULD UNDER TRUMP AND 7 MILLION MORE JOBS THAN UNDER TRUMP AND THE REASON IS WHEN YOU ALLOW PEOPLE TO GET BACK IN THE GAME AND HAVE A JOB, EVERYTHING MOVES EVERYTHING MOVES RIGHT NOW YOU GOT THE OPPOSITE YOU HAD LAST YEAR DURING THIS PANDEMIC, YOU HAD THE WEALTHIEST BILLIONAIRES IN THE WORLD — IN THE NATION, THEY MADE ANOTHER $700 BILLION $700 BILLION HE TALKS ABOUT A V-SHAPED RECOVERY IT’S A K-SHAPED RECOVERY IF YOU’RE ON THE TOP, YOU’RE GOING TO DO VERY WELL AND THE OTHER THING I’M — AND IF YOU’RE AT THE BOTTOM, THE MIDDLE OR THE BOTTOM, YOUR INCOME IS COMING DOWN YOU’RE NOT GETTING A RAISE I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU DO YOU MAY GET A RAISE HOPE YOU’RE A BILLIONAIRE BUT, BUT ALL KIDDING ASIDE, BUT IT’S ABOUT GROWING THE ECONOMY GEORGE, THE WAY UP — THE REASON WHY I’M SO OPTIMISTIC ABOUT ECONOMIC RECOVERY MORE THAN I’VE EVER BEEN IS WE HAVE THESE FOUR CRISES HAPPENING ALL AT ONCE AND ONE HELPS THE OTHER FOR EXAMPLE, WE’RE GOING TO INVEST A GREAT DEAL OF THAT MONEY INTO INFRASTRUCTURE AND A GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE WE’RE GOING TO PUT 500,000 CHARGING STATIONS ON NEW HIGHWAYS WE’RE BUILDING, ALL HIGHWAYS WE’RE BUILDING WE’RE GOING TO OWN THE ELECTRIC MARKET YOU KNOW AS WELL AS I DO FROM YOUR YS, YOU KNOW, THE OLD DAYS, WHERE THE PRESIDENT HAS, SPENDS ABOUT $600 BILLION A YEAR ON GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS EVERYTHING FROM MAKING SURE THEY HAVE AIRCRAFT CARRIERS TO AUTOMOBILE FLEETS FOR THE — IN THE UNITED STATES IF YOU MAKE — AND WE CAN — IT’S NOT VIOLATION OF ANY INTERNATIONAL TRADE AGREEMENT, MADE IN AMERICA IF YOU ACTUALLY INSIST THAT, WHATEVER THAT PRODUCT IS, MADE IN AMERICA, INCLUDING THE MATERIAL THAT GOES INTO THE PRODUCT, WE — IT’S ESTIMATED WE’RE GOING TO CREATE SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 4 MILLION AND 6 MILLION JOBS BY DOING THAT WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW UNDER HIS TRADE POLICY, A LOT OF THIS IS GOING OVERSEAS YOU GET A BENEFIT FROM GOING OVERSEAS IF YOU HAVE MUCH OF IT BEING MADE OVERSEAS SO IF YOU SEND IT OVERSEAS, YOU GET A 10% TAX INCREASE ON A PRODUCT IF YOU MAKE IT IN AMERICA, YOU BRING IT BACK, YOU GET A 10% GROWTH IF YOU BRING BACK A COMPANY, AND YOU’RE GOING TO OPEN UP AN OLD FACILITY, YOU GET A 10% TAX CREDIT FOR ALL YOU INVESTED

THAT ACTUALLY WORKS, GEORGE >> SO THERE’S NOT GOING TO BE ANY DELAY ON THE TAX INCREASES >> NO, WELL, I GOT TO GET THE VOTES I GOT TO GET THE VOTES THAT’S WHY, YOU KNOW, THE WITHIN THING THAT I — I HAVE THIS STRANGE NOTION, WE ARE A DEMOCRACY, SOME OF MY REPUBLICAN FRIENDS AND SOME OF MY DEMOCRATIC FRIENDS EVEN OCCASIONALLY SAY, WELL, IF YOU CAN’T GET THE VOTES BY EXECUTIVE ORDER, YOU’RE GOING TO DO SOMETHING THINGS YOU CAN’T DO BY EXECUTIVE ORDER UNLESS YOU’RE A DICTATOR WE’RE A DEMOCRACY WE NEED CONSENSUS >> GOT TO TIAKE A QUICK BREAK WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK >> I HOPE I ANSWERED YOUR QUESTION >> QUESTIWE THE PEOPLE OF THE U STATES IN ORDER TO FORM A MORE PERFECT UNION, DOMESTIC TRANQUILLY, PROMOTE THE GENERAL WELFARE AND SECURE THE BLESSINGS OF LIBERTY TO OURSELVES AND B POSPERITY, DO ORDAIN THIS — are you ready explore action venture Heoriginal there’s no limit to what you’ll find these are you so come on the bridge the university law and whenever you want that the maere on the plus mornings mook different these days buget connected to everything sthat’s happening in facingu the whole lot happening in our wothese days information of the day to help you nate through these times that’s why we’re here the morning sun make sure you start your day off with a smile in some sense morning America good morning America goning America of saying that media I know what happened and I’m not guilty why the ation with criminal trials figure out what’s really o there she revealed she had murde hy I know in my heart dated this it’s the time of suspicion the Indians realough you don’t know what the truth is going to be difficult to find unless you try to find what’s the most innovative Daily News podcast out there to listen to every day well thers stark here taily News podcast from ABC news even The New York Times calls top news podcath listening to getting behind the biggest news stories of the day inside all the details the backstory an will happen next and listening to start the y News podcast from ABC news it’s like the weather news podcast out there even the critics agree listen free on apple podcasts now could be a good time to have another baby are you crazy now that I said it out loud it does sound weird we don’t see your cell phone and I had to remind myself to see use you’re going to go >>> THE RIGHT OF CITIZENS — ON ACCOUNT OF RACE, COLOR, OR PREVIOUS CONDITION OF SERVITUDE FROM THE CONSTITUTION CENTER IN PHILADELPHIA, HERE AGAIN, GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS >> AND WELCOME BACK TO OUR TOWN HALL WITH JOE BIDEN GOING TO GET A QUESTION NOW FROM

CEDRIC HUMPHREY, A STUDENT FROM HARRISBURG, PENNSYLVANIA PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRAT >> DON’T JUMP, CEDRIC YOU LOOK LIKE YOU’RE WAY UP THERE >> I’LL BE OKAY THANK YOU, GEORGE GOOD EVENING FORMER VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE THE TRUE SWING DEMOGRAPHIC IN THIS ELECTION WILL BE BLACK VOTERS UNDER THE AGE OF 30 NOT BECAUSE THEY’LL BE VOTING FOR TRUMP, BUT BECAUSE THEY WON’T VOTE AT ALL I, MYSELF, HAVE HAD THIS EXACT SAME CONFLICT MY QUESTION IS, BESIDES YOU AIN’T BLACK, WHAT DO YOU SAY TO YOUNG BLACK VOTERS WHO SEE VOTING FOR YOU AS FURTHER PARTICIPATION IN A SYSTEM THAT CONTINUALLY FAILS TO PROTECT THEM? >> WELL, I SAY FIRST OF ALL AS MY BUDDY, JOHN LIEU WIRKS SAID, IT’S A SACRED OPPORTUNITY TO RIGHT THE VOTE THE NEXT QUESTION IS, AM I WORTHY OF YOUR VOTE? CAN I EARN YOUR VOTE? THE ANSWER IS, THERE’S TWO THINGS I THINK THAT I CARE AND I DEMONSTRATED I CARE ABOUT MY WHOLE CAREER ONE IS IN ADDITION TO DEALING WITH CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM TO MAKE IT FAIR, AND MAKE IT MORE DECENT, WE HAVE TO BE ABLE TO PUT BLACK AMERICANS IN A POSITION TO BE ABLE TO GAIN WEALTH GENERATE WEALTH AND SO YOU LOOK AT WHAT THAT ENTAILS IT ENTAILS EVERYTHING FROM EARLY EDUCATION, THAT’S WHY I’M SUPPORTING MAKING SURE THAT TITLE 1 SCHOOLS, AS YOU KNOW, SCHOOLS WITH THE LEAST TAX BASE TO BE ABLE TO SUPPORT THEIR SCHOOLS, I INCREASE THE FUNDING FOR THEM FROM $15 BILLION TO $45 BILLION THAT ALLOWS EVERY TEACHER IN THAT SCHOOL TO MAKE UP TO 60,000 BUCKS THE PROBLEM IS THEY’RE LEAVING THE SCHOOLS WE’RE SHORT A MILLION AND A HALF TEACHERS, MILLION AND A QUARTER TEACHERS NUMBER TWO, EVERY 3, 4, 5-YEAR-OLD WILL GO TO SCHOOL, SCHOOL, NOT DAY CARE, SCHOOL ALL THE GREAT UNIVERSITIES INCLUDING THE ONE YOU’VE GONE TO, GO TO, OR WENT TO IN FACT, TALKS ABOUT IN THE LAST EIGHT YEARS WHAT’S HAPPENED WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LET THEM GO TO SCHOOL, THEY MAKE UP RAPIDLY WHATEVER — WHATEVER — WHATEVER SHORTCOMING THEY HAD IN TERMS OF THEIR EDUCATION PRIOR TO THAT THEY HAVE NOT HEARD AS MANY WORDS SPOKEN, ET CETERA, ET CETERA WHAT HAPPENS IS STUDIES SHOW THAT 58% WILL INCREASE BY 58% THEIR CHANCE OF GOING ALL THROUGH 12 YEARS OF SCHOOL AND GOING THROUGH SUCCESSFULLY ALSO PROVIDE FOR THE ABILITY TO BRING IN SOCIAL WORKERS AND SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS WE HAVE ONE SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGIST IN AMERICA NOW FOR EVERY 1,507 KIDS IT SHOULD BE 1 TO 500 NOT JUST IN SCHOOLS THAT ARE POOR BUT IN ALL SCHOOLS BECAUSE WE LEARN THAT, FOR EXAMPLE, DRUG ABUSE DOESN’T CAUSE MENTAL ILLNESS MENTAL ILLNESS CAUSES DRUG ABUSE THE FAILURE TO GET HOLD OF PEOPLE AND DEAL WITH THEIR ANXIETIES IN ADDITION TO THAT, I PROVIDE FOR $70 BILLION FOR HBCUs FOR THEM TO BE ABLE HAVE THE WHEREWITHAL TO DO WHAT OTHER UNIVERSITIES CAN DO BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE THE KIND OF FOUNDATIONAL SUPPORT THEY NEED THAT WOULD ALLOW THEM, FOR EXAMPLE, LIKE WE DID NIN OUR ADMINISTRATION, THE PRESIDENT ALLOWED ME TO GO DOWN, WE AWARDED A CYBERSECURITY LABORATORY, ABILITY TO COMPETE FOR CYBERSECURITY LABORATORY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SPENDS BILLIONS OF DOLLARS A YEAR ON UNIVERSITIES BECAUSE THEY’RE THE BEST-KEPT SECRET OF WHERE MOST OF THE MAJOR INVENTIONS COME OUT OF SO THAT SCHOOL WILL BE ABLE TO PRODUCE YOUNG BLACK WOMEN AND MEN WHO GO INTO A FIELD OF A FUTURE THAT’S BURGEONING, CYBERSECURITY THAT’S GOING TO HELP A GREAT DEAL IN ADDITION TO THAT, IF YOU’RE A YOUNG MAN ABOUT TO GRADUATE, GRADUATED FROM SCHOOL, YOU WANT TO OWN YOUR FIRST HOME, WELL, IT’S AWFUL HARD TO GET THE MONEY DEPENDING ON THE BACKGROUND YOUR — EXCUSE ME, YOUR ECONOMIC BACKGROUND IS, TO GET A DOWN PAYMENT GOING TO GUARANTEE FIRST-TERM HOME BUYERS A $15,000 DOWN PAYMENT FOR FIRST-TIME HOME BUYERS IN ADDITION TO THAT, ALL THE STUDIES NOW SHOW, I’VE BEEN ARGUING THIS FOR A LONG TIME, YOUNG BLACK ENTREPRENEURS ARE JUST AS SUCCESSFUL AS WHITE ENTREPRENEURS OR ANYONE ELSE GIVEN A SHOT BUT YOU CAN’T GET THE MONEY WHERE DO YOU GO TO GET THE STARTUP MONEY? WE HAD A PROGRAM, WE INVESTED IN ALL THE SBAs AROUND THE COUNTRY, AND STATE SBAs, SMALL BUSINESS ASSOCIATIONS, AND THAT GENERATED, $30 BILLION CAME OFF THE SIDELINE IF YOU HAVE A GUARANTEE OF $200,000 FOR YOUR NEW STARTUP ENTERPRISE, YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR, YOU’RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO ATTRACT, IF IT’S GOVERNMENT MONEY, AS A GUARANTEE, YOU’LL BE ABLE TO ATTRACT ANOTHER $100,000 IT GENERATED $30 BILLION WELL, I’M CHANGING THAT PROGRAM AND I’LL GET THIS DONE WITHOUT MUCH TROUBLE, I BELIEVE, IN THE CONGRESS, FROM 15 $1.5 MILLION TO $30 BILLION SO $30 BILLION THAT WILL TAKE $300 BILLION AFTER THE SIDELINE AND GROW BECAUSE YOU KNOW, FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU, IN FACT, AND I WERE THE

SAME AGE AND WE SPLIT OUR DIFFERENCES, AND WE WERE THE SAME AGE AND WENT TO THE SAME BUILDER TO BUY A SAME HOME, MY HOME WAS IN A WHITE NEIGHBORHOOD ON ONE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY, YOURS IS IN A BLACK NEIGHBORHOOD, SAME EXACT HOME YOUR HOME WILL START OFF BEING VALUED 29% LESS THAN MY HOME, YET YOUR INSURANCE FOR THAT HOME WILL BE HIGHER YOU’LL BE TAXED MORE FOR IT WE GOT TO END THIS THAT’S WHAT GOT ME INVOLVED IN THE POLITICS IN THE FIRST PLACE CALLED RED LINING WE CAN CHANGE SO MUCH WE CAN DO SO MUCH TO CHANGE THE CIRCUMSTANCES TO GIVE PEOPLE A REAL OPPORTUNITY >> CEDRIC, DID YOU — >> I’M SORRY >> DID YOU HEAR WHAT YOU NEEDED TO HEAR? >> I THINK SO >> OKAY >> THERE’S A LOT MORE IF YOU WANT TO — IF YOU HANG AROUND AFTERWARDS, I’LL FELL YOU MORE >> OKAY >> I REALLY MEAN IT IT IS THE KEY LOOK, THIS IS THE WAY EVERY OTHER — HOW DO MOST — LIKE, MY DAD, HE LOST HIS JOB UP IN SCRANTON AND TOOK HIM THREE YEARS TO BE ABLE TO MOVE DOWN TO DELAWARE, TO CLAYMONT, DELAWARE, A STEEL TOWN, AND SENT US HOME TO OUR GRANDPOP TO LIVE WITH HIM FINALLY GOT BACK WE LIVED IN APARTMENTS, BECAME SECTION EIGHT HOUSING, MUCH LATER IT WAS NORMAL APARTMENTS IT TOOK THIM FIVE YEARS TO BE ABLE TO BUY A HOME WE BOUGHT A THREE-BEDROOM HOME, FOUR KIDS AND A GRANDPOP LIVING WITH US BUT IT ACCUMULATED WEALTH BUILT UP WEALTH THAT’S HOW MIDDLE-CLASS FOLKS MAKE IT THEY BUILD UP WEALTH HE WAS ABLE TO BORROW A LITTLE AGAINST THAT TO BE ABLE TO HELP US GET TO SCHOOL, THOSE KINDS OF THINGS IT’S ABOUT ACCUMULATING WEALTH YOU’RE BEHIND AN 8 BALL THE VAST MAJORITY OF PEOPLE OF COLOR ARE BEHIND AN 8 BALL IT’S THE SAME WAY WHAT’S GOING ON NOW WITH ALL THIS MONEY THAT’S BEEN VOTED WHAT’S HAPPENED? YOU GO TO THE BANK, IF YOU’RE A BLACK BUSINESSMAN AND THE PRESIDENT FIRED THE ONLY INSPECTOR GENERAL TO OVERSEE ALL THIS HELP COMING FROM THE CONGRESS YOU GO IN, SAY, DO YOU HAVE AN ACCOUNT HERE? NO DO YOU HAVE A CREDIT CARD WITH US? NO HAVE YOU BORROWED FROM US BEFORE? NO WE BAIL THESE SUCKERS OUT THEY’RE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE MONEY BUT THEY STILL WON’T LEND IT TO YOU WE GOT TO CHANGE THAT IT’S ABOUT ACCUMULATING WEALTH >> WANT TO GET ANOTHER QUESTION IN FROM ANGELICA >> SORRY >> NOT AT ALL >> GARNETT VALLEY, PENNSYLVANIA, REPUBLICAN WHO VOTED FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP LAST TIME >> THANK YOU, GEORGE, THANK YOU, VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN NICE TO MEET YOU WHAT’S YOUR VIEW ON THE CRIME BILL THAT YOU WROTE IN 1994 WHICH SHOWED PREJUDICE AGAINST MINORITIES? WHERE DO YOU STAND TODAY ON THAT? >> WELL, FIRST OF ALL, THINGS HAVE CHANGED DRASTICALLY THAT CRIME BILL — THE BLACK CAUCUS VOTED FOR IT, EVERY BLACK MAYOR SUPPORTED IT ACROSS THE BOARD THE CRIME BILL, ITSELF, DID NOT HAVE MANDATORY SENTENCES EXCEPT FOR TWO THINGS IT HAD THREE STRIKES AND YOU’RE OUT WHICH I VOTED AGAINST IN THE CRIME BILL IT HAD A LOT OF OTHER THINGS IN IT THAT TURNED OUT TO BE BAD AND GOOD I WROTE THE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT WHAT I WAS AGAINST WAS GIVING STATES MORE MONEY FOR PRISON SYSTEMS THAT THEY COULD BUILD, STATE PRISON SYSTEMS AND YOU HAVE 93 OUT OF EVERY 100 PEOPLE IN JAIL RIGHT NOW ARE IN A STATE PRISON, NOT A FEDERAL PRISON, BECAUSE THEY BUILT MORE PRISONS I WROTE INTO THE BILL A THING CALLED DRUG COURTS I DON’T BELIEVE ANYBODY SHOULD BE GOING TO JAIL FOR DRUG USE THEY SHOULD BE GOING INTO MANDATORY REHABILITATION WE SHOULD BE BUILDING REHAB CENTERS TO HAVE THESE PEOPLE HOUSED WE SHOULD WIPE OUT — WE SHOULD DECRIMINALIZE MARIJUANA, WIPE OUT THE RECORD SO YOU CAN ACTUALLY SAY IN HONESTY, HAVE YOU EVER BEEN ARRESTED FOR ANYTHING? YOU CAN SAY, NO, BECAUSE THEY’RE GOING TO PASS THE LAW SAYING THERE IS NO BACKGROUND THAT YOU HAVE TO REVEAL RELATIVE TO THE USE OF MARIJUANA AND SO THERE’S A LOT OF THINGS, BUT IN ADDITION TO THAT, WE GOT TO CHANGE THE SYSTEM I JOIN WITH A GROUP OF PEOPLE IN THE HOUSE TO PROVIDE FOR CHANGING THE SYSTEM FROM — FROM PUNISHMENT TO REHABILITATION ALONG WITH A GUY NAMED ARLEN SPECTER WHO YOU MAY REMEMBER, I WROTE THE SECOND CHANCE ACT >> IN THE MEANTIME, AN AWFUL LOT OF PEOPLE WERE JAILED FOR MINOR DRUG CRIMES >> EXACTLY RIGHT >> WAS IT A MISTAKE TO SUPPORT IT? >> YES, IT WAS HERE’S WHERE THE MISTAKE CAME THE MISTAKE CAME IN TERMS OF WHAT THE STATES DID LOCALLY WHAT WE DID FEDERALLY, WE SAID IT WAS — YOU REMEMBER, GEORGE, IT WAS ALL ABOUT THE SAME TIME FOR THE SAME CRIME WHAT I HAD DONE AS CHAIRMAN OF THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, I DID — I TOOK THE TEN CIRCUIT COURTS OF APPEALS, TOOK REALLY BRILLIANT LAWYERS WORKING FOR ME IN THE JUDICIARY WE DID A STUDY AND DETERMINED WHAT HAPPENS IF FOR THE FIRST, SECOND, THIRD, OFFENSE, FOR ANY CRIME IN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM, IN THE — AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL, IF YOU’RE A BLACK MAN, IT’S THE FIRST TIME YOU COMMIT A ROBBERY, HOW LONG WOULD YOUAVER? IF YOU’RE A WHITE MAN, HOW LONG? BLACK MAN WOULD GO TO JAIL ON AVERAGE 13 YEARS WHITE MAN, TWO YEARS I GO DOWN THE LIST OF EVERY SINGLE CRIME SO WE SET UP A SENTENCING COMMISSION WE DIDN’T SET THE TIME EVERY SINGLE SOLITARY MAXIMUM WAS REDUCED IN THERE

WHAT HAPPENED WAS IT BECAME THE SAME TIME FOR THE SAME CRIME SO IT SAID, YOU HAVE TO SERVE BETWEEN ONE AND THREE YEARS ENDED UP BECOMING MUCH LOWER BLACK FOLKS WENT TO JAIL A LOT LESS THAN THEY WOULD HAVE BEFORE, BUT IT WAS A MISTAKE >> LET ME ASK ANOTHER FOLLOW YUM UP ON THE CRIME BILL FUNDED 100,000 POLICE >> YES >> YOU OFTEN SAID, MORE COPS CLEARLY MEAN LESS CRIME DO YOU STILL BELIEVE THAT? >> YES, IN FACT, IF THEY’RE INVOLVED IN COMMUNITY POLICING, NOT JUMP SQUADS FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN WE HAD COMMUNITY POLICING FROM THE MID ’90s ON UNTIL — UNTIL BUSH GOT ELECTED, WHAT HAPPENED? VIOLENT CRIME ACTUALLY WENT DOWN REMEMBER THE SIGNIFICANT RISE IN VIOLENT CRIME OCCURRING IN THE LATE ’80s INTO THE ’90s IT WENT DOWN AND FEWER AFRICAN-AMERICANS WERE ARRESTED BECAUSE YOU HAD THE REQUIREMENT, THE COPS DIDN’T LIKE IT THEY DIDN’T LIKE THE COMMUNITY POLICING BECAUSE YOU HAD TO HAVE TWO PEOPLE IN A VEHICLE THEY HAD TO GET OUT OF THEIR CARS HAD TO INTRODUCE THEMSELVES TO WHO OWNED THE LOCAL LIQUOR STORE, WHO OWNED THE LOCAL GROCERY STORE WHO WAS THE WOMAN ON THE CORNER WHAT THEY WOULD DO, GEORGE, THEY WOULD ACTUALLY GO AND GIVE PEOPLE THEIR PHONE NUMBERS A COP WOULD GIVE THE PHONE NUMBER SO IF NELLY SMITH WAS ON THE SECOND FLOOR WHERE A DRUG DEAL TOOK PLACE, THINGS HAPPENED BELOW HER, SHE — HER APARTMENT, SHE COULD CALL AND SAY, IT’S NELLY AND THERE’S GOING ON HERE AND THEY’D NEVER REVEAL IT WAS HER BECAUSE THEY KNOW IF SHE KNEW THAT, IN FACT, THEY REPORT, THEY’D NEVER REPORT THE CRIME — SHE’D NEVER REPORT SO IT ACTUALLY STARTED TO COME DOWN WHAT HAPPENED? THEY ELIMINATED THE FUNDING FOR COMMUNITY POLICING COMMUNITY POLICING DOESN’T MEAN MORE PEOPLE COMING IN IN UPARMORED HUMVEES AND SWARMING BY THE TIME WE GOT TO THE LATE ’90s, THE CRIME HAD COME DOWN SO MUCH AND MAYORS AND EVERYBODY ASKED THE QUESTION, WHERE DO YOU WANT ME TO SPEND THE MONEY? THEY SAY, WELL, ONLY 1% THOUGHT VIOLENT CRIME WAS A PROBLEM IT WAS AS HIGH AS 22% >> RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE A SYSTEMIC PROBLEM HOW DO YOU GET THE KIND OF PO POLICING, PREVENT THE — >> YOU HAVE TO CHANGE THE WAY IN WHICH — ONE OF THE THINGS AISLE GO I’M GOING TO DO, GEORGE, IS SET UP A NATIONAL STUDY GROUP MADE UP OF COPS, SOCIAL WORKERS, AS WELL AS MADE UP OF THE BLACK COMMUNITY AND BROWN COMMUNITY TO OVER THE NEXT YEAR COME UP WITH SIGNIFICANT REFORMS THAT NEED TO TAKE PLACE WITHIN COMMUNITIES YOU NEED TO BRING THEM TOGETHER ONE OF THE THINGS I OBSERVED, YOU KNOW, THE NEIGHBOR — I GREW UP IN CLAYMONT EITHER BECAME A COP, FIREFIGHTER, OR PRIEST I WASN’T QUALIFIED MUCH TO DO ANY ONE OF THEM HERE’S THE DEAL ALL KIDDING ASIDE MOST COPS DON’T LIKE BAD COPS >> CORRECT >> THEY DON’T LIKE IT SO WHAT HAPPENS IS THEY GET INTIMIDATED INTO NOT REPORTING SO ONE OF THE THINGS WE DO IS THERE HAS TO BE TRANSPARENCY AVAILABLE WE HAVE TO BE ABLE TO DO, GO IN AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL, BE ABLE TO GO IN AND CHECK OUT WHETHER OR NOT THERE ARE SYSTEMIC PROBLEMS WITHIN POLICE DEPARTMENTS IF, IN FACT, A COP NEEDS TO BE TRIED, IT’S NOT THE PROSECUTOR IN THE COMMUNITY, IN THE DISTRICT, YOU GOT TO GO OUTSIDE THE COMMUNITY TO GET ANOTHER PROSECUTOR TO COME IN AND HANDLE THE CRIME THERE’S A LOT OF THINGS S WE’VE LEARNED AND IT TAKES TIME BUT WE CAN DO THIS YOU CAN BAN CHOKE HOLDS BUT BEYOND THAT, YOU HAVE TO TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO DE-ESCALATE CIRCUMSTANCES DE-ESCALATE SO INSTEAD OF ANYBODY COMING AT YOU, THE FIRST THING YOU DO IS SHOOT TO KILL, YOU SHOOT THEM IN THE LEG THERE’S WAYS YOU HAVE TO DO MORE BACKGROUND CHECKS IN TERMS OF WHETHER OR NOT THE PERSON COMING IN PASSES A CERTAIN PSYCHOLOGICAL TEST THE LAST THING I’LL SAY, I’M SORRY, IT’S REALLY, I THINK, REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT, IS YOU HAVE TO BE IN A POSITION WHERE YOU ARE ABLE TO IDENTIFY, IDENTIFY, THE THINGS THAT HAVE TO CHANGE ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAS TO CHANGE IS SO MANY COPS GET CALLED INTO CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE SOMEBODY IS MENTALLY OFF LIKE WHAT HAPPENED NOT LONG AGO THAT GUY WITH THE KNIFE THAT’S WHY WE HAVE TO PROVIDE — WITHIN POLICE DEPARTMENTS — SK PSYCHOLOGISTS AND SOCIAL WORKERS TO GO OUT WITH THE COPS ON THOSE CALLS SOME OF THOSE 911 CAUSE TO DE-ESCALATE THE CIRCUMSTANCE TO DEAL WITH TALKING THEM DOWN BUT WE CAN’T — COPS ARE KIND OF LIKE SCHOOLTEACHERS NOW YOU KNOW, SCHOOLTEACHER HAS TO KNOW EVERYTHING FROM WHAT — HOW TO HANDLE HUNGER IN A HOUSEHOLD AS WELL AS HOW TO TEACH HOW TO READ WELL, COPS DON’T HAVE THAT BREADTH AND THERE’S A LOT OF THINGS WE CAN DO WE SHOULDN’T BE DEFUNDING COPS WE SHOULD BE MANDATING THE THINGS THAT WE SHOULD BE DOING WITHIN POLICE DEPARTMENTS AND MAKE SURE THERE’S TOTAL TRANSPARENCY >> GOT TO TAKE ANOTHER QUICK BREAK WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK >> I DON’T KNOW IF THAT ANSWERED YOUR QUESTION, BUT — forward >>> TOMORROW GET READY FOR

HEARING FOR ALL 2016 AMY CONEY BARRETT IS BEING PUSHED THROUGH AT THE LAST MINUTE EVEN THOUGH MILLIONS HAVE ALREADY VOTED WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IDEAS FROM PEOPLE LIKE PETE BUTTIGIEG AND OTHERS TO PUT IN PLACE SAFEGUARDS THAT WILL HELP ENSURE MORE LONG-TERM BALANCE AND STABILITY AND WHAT DO YOU SAY TO LGBTQ AMERICANS AND OTHERS WHO ARE VERY WORRIED RIGHT NOW ABOUT EROSIONS OF THEIR RIGHTS AND OUR DEMOCRACY AS WHOLE? >> LET ME START THE LAST POINT, WORK MY WAY BACK I THINK THERE’S GREAT REASON TO BE CONCERNED I WAS ON THE ROAD MOST OF THE TIME DURING THESE HEARINGS SO I DIDN’T HEAR MANY OF THEM I JUST GOT THE RECAPS YOU KNOW, I’D GET IN LATE AT NIGHT FROM — I’VE BEEN GOING AROUND THE COUNTRY, FLORIDA, AND, ANYWAY AND, BUT MY READING ONLINE WHAT THE — WHAT THE JUDGE SAID WAS SHE DIDN’T ANSWER VERY MANY QUESTIONS AT ALL AND I DON’T EVEN THINK SHE HAS LAID OUT MUCH OF A JUDICIAL PHILOSOPHY IN TERMS OF THE BASES UPON WHICH SHE THINKS, ARE THERE UNENUMERATED RATES IN THE CONSTITUTION SO NUMBER ONE I THINK THERE’S GREAT REASON TO BE CONCERNED FOR THE LGBT COMMUNITY SOMETHING I FOUGHT VERY HARD FOR FOR A LONG TIME TO MAKE SURE THERE’S EQUALITY ACROSS THE BOARD NUMBER TWO, I THINK THAT ALSO HEALTH CARE OVERALL IS VERY MUCH IN JEOPARDY AS A CONSEQUENCE OF THE PRESIDENT’S GOING TO GO DIRECTLY AFTER THIS ELECTION, DIRECTLY TO THE SUPREME COURT WITHIN A MONTH TO TRY TO GET OBAMACARE WIPED OUT AFTER WE’VE ALREADY, 10 MILLION PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY LOST THEIR INSURANCE FROM THEIR EMPLOYER AND WANTS TO TAKE 20 MILLION PEOPLE OUT OF THE SYSTEM AS WELL PLUS 100 MILLION PEOPLE WITH PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS THERE’S A LOT AT STAKE I DON’T THINK IT’S APPROPRIATE THINK THE CONSTITUTION IMPLIES, THERE’S NO PROVISION IN THE CONSTITUTION, MY PROBLEM IS I MADE A MISTAKE, TEACHING CONSTITUTIONAL LAW FOR 21 YEARS AND SEPARATION OF POWERS THE CONSTITUTION IMPLIES THAT THE WAY THE PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO DETERMINE WHO’S GOING TO BE ON THE COURT IS HOW THEY VOTE FOR THEIR SENATORS AND THEIR PRESIDENT WE SEEK THE ADVICE AND CONSENT OF THE SENATE AND THE — >> THE PRESIDENT’S PRESIDENT FOR ALL FOUR YEARS, ISN’T HE? >> HE IS, BUT ONCE AN ELECTION BEGINS, BY IMPLICATION, IT IS INCONSISTENT WITH THE CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPLES, IN MY VIEW YOU GET DISAGREEMENT AMONGST SCHOLARS ON THIS, BUT I BELIEVE IT’S INCONSISTENT WHEN MILLIONS OF PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY VOTED TO PUT SOMEONE ON THE COURT I THINK IT SHOULD BE — SHOULD HAVE BEEN HELD UNTIL THE NEXT — THIS ELECTION IS OVER SEE WHAT THE MAKEUP OF THE SENATE IS GOING TO BE IF THE PRESIDENT WON, WINS THIS ELECTION, HE SHOULD BE — >> HOW ABOUT THAT QUESTION OF EXPANDING THE COURT HERE’S WHAT YOU SAID EXACTLY ONE YEAR AGO TONIGHT AT A DEMOCRATIC DEBATE YOU SAID, I WOULD NOT GET INTO COURT PACKING, I WOULD NOT PACK THE COURT THAT’S NOT THAT YOU’RE SAYING NOW IS THE NOMINATION OF JUDGE BARRETT REASON ENOUGH TO RETHINK YOUR POSITION? >> WHAT IS — THE NOMINATION — WHAT I WANTED TO DO, GEORGE, YOU KNOW IF I HAD ANSWERED THE QUESTION DIRECTLY, THEN ALL THE FOCUS WOULD BE ON WHAT’S BIDEN GOING TO DO IF HE WINS? INSTEAD OF ON IS IT APPROPRIATE WHAT IS GOING ON NOW? AND IT SHOULD STAY — THIS IS THE THING THAT THE PRESIDENT LOVES TO DO ALWAYS TAKE OUR EYE OFF THE BALL WHAT’S AT STAKE ONE OF THE THINGS PETE HAS SUGGESTED IS, THERE’S A NUMBER OF CONSTITUTIONAL SCHOLARS HAVE SUGGESTED, AS WELL, THAT THERE ARE AT LEAST FOUR OR FIVE OPTIONS THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT YOU CAN CHANGE THE WAY IN WHICH THE COURT LIFETIME APPOINTMENT TAKES PLACE CONSISTENT, ARGUABLY, WITH THE CONSTITUTION I HAVE NOT BEEN A FAN OF COURT PACKING BECAUSE THEN IT GENERATES WHAT WILL HAPPEN, WHOEVER WINS, IT JUST KEEPS MOVING IN A WAY THAT IS INCONSISTENT WITH WHAT IS GOING TO BE MANAGEABLE >> YOU’RE STILL NOT A FAN? >> I’M NOT A FAN IT DEPENDS ON HOW THIS TURNS OUT NOT HOW HE WINS BUT HOW IT’S HANDLED HOW IT’S HANDLED THERE’S A NUMBER OF THINGS THAT ARE GOING TO BE COMING UP AND THERE’S GOING TO BE A LOT OF DISCUSSION ABOUT OTHER ALTERNATIVES AS WELL >> WHAT DOES THAT MEAN, HOW IT’S HANDLED? HOW WILL THAT DETERMINE — >> WELL, FOR EXAMPLE, THERE’S ACTUALLY REAL LIVE DEBATE ON THE FLOOR IF PEOPLE ARE REALLY GOING TO BE ABLE TO HAVE A TIME TO GO THROUGH THIS YOU KNOW, I DON’T KNOW ANYBODY WHO’S GONE ON THE FLOOR, THAT’S BEEN A CONTROVERSIAL JUSTICE IN TERMS OF MAKING FUNDAMENTALLY ALL THE MAKEUP OF THE COURT THAT’S GONE THROUGH IN A DAY KIND OF THING I MEAN, IT DEPENDS ON HOW MUCH THEY RUSH THIS AND YOU THINK ABOUT IT, GEORGE, HERE YOU GOT A LOT OF PEOPLE NOT BEING ABLE TO PAY THEIR MORTGAGE, NOT BEING ABLE TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE, NOT BEING ABLE TO KEEP THEIR BUSINESS OPEN, NOT BEING ABLE TO DO ANYTHING TO DEAL WITH WHAT’S GOING ON IN TERMS OF THE ECONOMY AS A CONSEQUENCE OF COVID AND HAVE NO TIME TO DEAL WITH THAT BUT THEY HAVE TIME TO RUSH THIS THROUGH >> RIGHT NOW, LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE A VOTE AROUND HALLOWEEN THEY VOTE — >> THAT’S AN APPROPRIATE DAY >> IF THEY VOTE ON IT BEFORE THE ELECTION, YOU’RE OPEN TO EXPANDING THE COURT? >> I’M OPEN TO CONSIDERING WHAT HAPPENS FROM THAT POINT ON >> YOU KNOW, YOU SAID SO MANY TIMES DURING THE CAMPAIGN, ALL THROUGH THE COURSE OF YOUR CAREER, IT’S IMPORTANT TO LE LEVEL — >> IT IS GEORGE, IF I SAY — NO MATTER WHAT ANSWER I GAVE YOU, IF I SAY IT, THAT’S THE HEADLINE TOMORROW IT WON’T BE ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON NOW THE IMPROPER WAY THEY’RE PROCEEDING >> DON’T VOTERS HAVE A RIGHT TO

KNOW WHERE — >> THEY DO HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW WHERE I STAND THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW WHERE I STAND BEFORE THEY VOTE >> SO YOU’LL COME OUT WITH A CLEAR POSITION BEFORE ELECTION DAY? >> YES DEPENDING ON HOW THEY HANDLED THIS BUT, LOOK, WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IS YOU GOT TO MAKE SURE YOU VOTE AND VOTE FOR A SENATOR WHO, IN FACT, THINKS, REFLECTS YOUR GENERAL VIEW ON CONSTITUTIONAL INTERPRETATION AND VOTE FOR A PRESIDENT WHO THINKS HE’S MORE IN LINE WITH YOU AND IF YOU OPPOSE THE POSITION THAT I — I WOULD NOT HAVE APPOINTED HER BUT IF YOU OPPOSE MY POSITION, VOTE FOR TRUMP VOTE FOR REPUBLICAN WHO SHARES THAT VIEW BUT THAT’S YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO GET INVOLVED IN LIFETIME APPOINTMENTS THAT HAVE — PRESIDENTS COME AND GO JUSTICES STAY AND STAY AND STAY >> WE HAVE A QUESTION FROM A REPUBLICAN, ANDREW LEWIS DISAFFECTED REPUBLICAN YOU CAST A WRITE-IN VOTE FOR JOHN KASICH IN 2016 YOU’RE GOING TO VOTE AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP THIS YEAR >> JOHN’S WRITING IN FOR ME, BY THE WAY >> I KNOW THAT MR.

I STAND UP AND I SAY, YOU KNOW, WE NEED INFRASTRUCTURE BILL, SENATOR, BUT I TELL YOU WHAT, YOU’RE IN THE POCKET OF THE CEMENT INDUSTRY LET’S SEE WHAT WE CAN DO YOU CAN’T GET ANYWHERE NOTHING HAPPENS NOTHING HAPPENS I LEARNED THAT LESSON A LONG TIME AGO I NEVER — EVEN WHEN IT’S OBVIOUS ON ITS FACE WHAT THE MOTIVE IS, STICK TO THE SUBJECT AND LISTEN TO THE OTHER GUY LISTEN WHAT I WILL BE DOING IF I’M ELECTED PRESIDENT, THE FIRST THING, NOT A JOKE, YOU CAN ASK, IF THEY TELL YOU YOUR DAD’S OLD FRIENDS ON THE REPUBLICAN SIDE, I’M GOING TO PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL THEM AND SAY,LET GET TOGETHER, WE GOT IT FIGURE OUT HOW WE’RE GOING TO MOVE FORWARD HERE THERE’S SO MANY THINGS WE REALLY DO AGREE ON AND WITH TRUMP OUT OF THE WAY, THE VINDICTIVENESS OF A PRESIDENT GOING AFTER REPUBLICANS WHO DON’T DO EXACTLY WHAT HE SAYS GETS — GETS TAKEN AWAY THERE’S GOING TO BE, I PROMISE YOU, BETWEEN FOUR AND EIGHT REPUBLICAN SENATORS WHO ARE WILLING — GOING TO BE WILLING TO MOVE ON THINGS WHERE THERE’S BIPARTISAN CONSENSUS LAST EXAMPLE I’LL GIVE YOU, YOU KNOW, AFTER WE — THE — AFTER TRUMP HAD BEEN ELECTED, NAMED THE NEXT PRESIDENT, WASN’T SWORN IN YET, I HAD BEEN WORKING ON A THING CALLED THE — A BILL RELATING TO CANCER CURES OKAY? AND IT WAS CALLED THE CANCER MOONSHOT I WORKED WITH A NUMBER OF DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS AND WE HAD A BILL THAT WAS ABOUT $9 BILLION THAT MADE SIGNIFICANT INCREASES IN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ON CANCER ALTERNATIVES, NIH, IN PARTICULAR, SPECIFIC CANCER INITIATIVES AND WE ONLY HAD AT THE TIME, I THINK IT WAS 111, 14, WHATEVER IT WAS, VOTES IN THE HOUSE I DON’T HOLD THE EXACT NUMBER WE HAD FEWER THAN 40 IN THE SENATE BUT AFTER HE WAS ELECTED, I GOT THOSE PEOPLE TOGETHER AS VICE PRESIDENT WE SAT DOWN AND WE WORKED IT OUT AND ENDED UP GETTING IT PASSED 396 VOTES IN THE HOUSE AND 94 VOTES IN THE SENATE AND AT THE END OF THE DAY BECAUSE IT HAD TO DO WITH THE BIDEN CANCER MOONSHOT I’D BEEN WORKING ON, MITCH McCONNELL, MITCH McCONNELL STOOD UP, I WAS PRESIDING OFFICER, AND MOVED TO NAME THE BILL AFTER MY DECEASED SON, BEAU, WHO HAD JUST DIED SO THERE IS — THERE IS — THERE ARE WAYS TO BRING THIS TOGETHER >> HOW ABOUT THE QUESTION OF POLITICAL ACCOUNTABILITY? IS THERE SOME TENSION BETWEEN THAT AND BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER? YOU KNOW, ROBERT MUELLER LAID OUT A LOT OF THE EVIDENCE, POSSIBLE OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE BY PRESIDENT TRUMP WHAT WOULD A BIDEN JUSTICE DEPARTMENT DO WITH THAT EVIDENCE? >> WHAT THE BIDEN JUSTICE DEPARTMENT WILL DO IS LET THE
