Updated: 10:38 AM KUSI Newsroom, January 25, 2019 Posted: January 25, 2019 Categories: Good Morning San Diego, Local San Diego News Tags: Donald Trump FacebookTwitter Watch: President Trump makes announcement on shutdown from the Rose Garden WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump planned to speak about the government shutdown on Friday as intensifying delays at the nation’s airports and widespread disruptions brought new urgency to efforts to resolve the 35-day impasse.The event comes amid growing speculation that lawmakers and the White House are on the verge of reaching a deal to end the five-week impasse. Trump was to speak at 1:30 p.m., Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.Overnight and into Friday at least five Republican senators had been calling Trump, urging him to reopen the government and have the Senate consider his request for border wall funds through regular legislation, according to a person familiar with the situation who was not authorized to discuss the private talks publicly.The burst of movement came as LaGuardia Airport in New York and Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey were both experiencing at least 90-minute delays in takeoffs Friday.The world’s busiest airport — Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport — was experiencing long security wait times, a warning sign the week before it expects 150,000 out-of-town visitors for the Super Bowl.Trump and the Democrats in Congress remained at odds over his demand that any compromise include money for his coveted border wall.The standoff has become so severe that, as the Senate opened with prayer, Chaplain Barry Black called on high powers in the “hour of national turmoil” to help senators do “what is right.”Senators were talking with increased urgency after Thursday’s defeat of competing proposals from Trump and the Democrats. The bipartisan talks provided a glimmer of hope that some agreement could be reached to temporarily halt the longest-ever closure of federal agencies.“There are discussions on the Senate side. We are in touch with them,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Friday morning as she entered the Capitol. Asked about Trump’s demands for border security measures as part of a bill temporarily reopening government, Pelosi said, “we’ll see what happens today. One step at a time.”Pelosi was referring to a Thursday meeting between Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., to explore potential next steps for solving the vitriolic stalemate.Pressure is building among both parties to reopen agencies immediately and pay hundreds of thousands of beleaguered federal workers while bargainers hunt for a deal.Monday is the start of federal tax filing season. But fewer than half of the furloughed IRS employees recalled during the shutdown to handle tax returns and send out refunds reported for work as of Tuesday, according to congressional and government aides. The employees had been told to work without pay.Trump says any short-term deal to end the shutdown must include a large down-payment for a border wall — an idea Pelosi and Schumer immediately rejected.The Democrats were waiting Friday to hear back from McConnell about his discussions with the White House, according to a Senate Democratic aide who was not authorized to speak publicly about the negotiations.Meanwhile, the toll of the shutdown was being felt at airports across the countries. The Federal Aviation Administration on Friday reported delays in air travel because of a “slight increase in sick leave” at two East Coast air traffic control facilities. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Trump has been briefed on the airport delays and was monitoring the situation.At the White House Thursday, Trump told reporters he’d support “a reasonable agreement” to reopen the government. He suggested he’d also want a “prorated down payment” for his long-sought border wall with Mexico but didn’t describe the term. He said he has “other alternatives” for getting wall funding, an apparent reference to his disputed claim that he could declare a national emergency and fund the wall’s construction using other programs in the federal budget.On Friday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders didn’t offer much clarity.“I’m not going to negotiate in the press, but we’ve laid out a proposal of not what we want, but what the people and the professionals at the border say that they need to do their jobs,” Sander said. “And that’s what the president wants to see happen. And we are going to work to get there one way or another.”Even so, it was unclear whether the flurry would produce results.“At least we’re talking about it. That’s better than it was before,” McConnell told reporters in one of the most encouraging statements heard since the shutdown began Dec. 22. McConnell spokesman Don Stewart said Friday that it is still up for Pelosi and Trump to take the lead, even as a clamor is growing in the Senate for McConnell and Schumer to grab the reins.Schumer spokesman Justin Goodman said Democrats have made clear that “they will not support funding for the wall, prorated or otherwise.”Contributing to the pressure on lawmakers to find a solution was the harsh reality confronting 800,000 federal workers, who on Friday face a second two-week payday with no paychecks.In an embarrassment to Trump, the Democratic proposal got two more votes Thursday than the GOP plan, even though Republicans control the chamber 53-47. Six Republicans backed the Democratic plan, including freshman Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who’s clashed periodically with the president.The Senate first rejected a Republican plan reopening the government through September and giving Trump the $5.7 billion he’s demanded for building segments of that wall, a project that he’d long promised Mexico would finance. The 50-47 vote for the measure fell 10 shy of the 60 votes needed to succeed.Minutes later, senators voted 52-44 for a Democratic alternative that sought to open padlocked agencies through Feb. 8 with no wall money. That was eight votes short. It was aimed at giving bargainers time to seek an accord while getting paychecks to government workers who are either working without pay or being forced to stay home.Thursday’s votes came after Vice President Mike Pence lunched privately with restive GOP senators, who told him they were itching for the standoff to end, participants said. Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., said their message to Pence was, “Find a way forward.”Flustered lawmakers said Thursday’s roll calls could be a reality check that would prod the start of talks. Throughout, the two sides have issued mutually exclusive demands that have blocked negotiations from even starting: Trump has refused to reopen government until Congress gives him the wall money, and congressional Democrats have rejected bargaining until he reopens government.___Associated Press writer Zeke Miller contributed to this story from Washington.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said Wednesday she would support a resolution opposing President Trump’s emergency declaration to divert military funds to build a southern border wall.“We don’t know if the [Portsmouth Naval] shipyard will be affected, but it illustrates the danger of allowing unilateral action by the President that reverses what Congress and the President previously agreed to,” Collins said, according to WGME-TV.Her remarks, which came during a ribbon-cutting at a Coast Guard command center in Portland, make her the first prominent Republican to support a resolution that is expected to start in the House next week. Even if it passes both chambers, it is unlikely to do so by a veto-proof majority, making it more likely the issue will play out in the courts.Collins said she also supports a lawsuit that 16 states filed to stop the emergency order, according to the station.U.S. Coast Guard photo by Petty Officer 3rd Class Zachary Hupp ADC AUTHOR
The rapidly rising newcomer took time to speak to us at Lollapalooza about her headlining tour, career milestones and her forthcoming albumJacklyn KrolGRAMMYs Aug 3, 2018 – 10:46 am With her debut LP still in the works and her EP on the Billboard Top 40, 16-year-old Billie Eilish made her Lollapalooza debut on Thursday, Aug. 2 in front of a larger-than-life crowd. If her devoted audience isn’t enough of an indication of her speedy success, her EP reaching over a billion streams is. Later this year she will embark on her 1 By 1 Tour which sold out in just 60 seconds.We spoke with Billie backstage at Lollapalooza to talk about her billion-stream milestone, what we can expect from her upcoming headlining tour, and learn new details about her debut full-length album. Your Full American 1 by 1 Tour sold out in 60 seconds, without an LP out. How does it feel to have something that accelerated happen to you this early in your music career? All I can say about that is I just don’t even get it. It’s just crazy to me because I grew up as a fan and I still am a fan, you know. I’m a fan of so much music and art and artists and stuff, and I grew up with their sort of mindset, and now, I’m seeing it from the other side, but also, being on the other side, it’s weird. It’s just something that doesn’t happen, so when it happens, it’s like, “What the f***?”. Like, “what?” It’s crazy. It’s really cool.What are some of those things you are into? You mentioned music and art – what are you listening to these days and what’s inspiring you? These days, to be honest with you, I’m just listening to my own stuff that I’m making. I listen to so much music, though, I couldn’t really say, “I’m listening to this right now, or this a week ago.” It’s just like always, always everything is changing. I’m always listening to music.Lately, it’s just been the stuff that I’m creating that I’m really pumped about and just feeling it, but I don’t know… There’s so much good music out there right now, it’s crazy.You passed a billion streams. Do you remember where you were when you found this out? Did you celebrate, or, how did you react? Honestly, I feel like if I celebrated that kind of thing, I’d just feel weird. I’d feel almost gross. I just want to celebrate everybody else. I don’t want to be, like, “Oh, I got a billion streams, I got a million followers.” I just want to have fun with the people that f*** with me, you know? I just want to f*** with people that f*** with me… I like all of them, too. It’s more than it is. But it’s less than it is, I don’t know.Tell me about the Beats 1 radio show you’re launching. How did that come about? Dude, isn’t it so sick? Dude, Beats 1 is just the homie. It’s crazy because when “Ocean Eyes” came out in 2015, Jayden Smith had a Beats 1 show on Beats 1, and he played it, which was crazy because it had just come out. I have no idea how he found it or whatever, but, it was the biggest deal, you know? At the time I was like, “This is insane,” and then, now I have [a Beats 1 show of my own].I’m just like a big music fan and so I always find new stuff. I’m always playing stuff that people are like, “What is this?” And it’s always stuff that has like two plays on SoundCloud or nobody knows. I’m just trying to get people’s names out there because there are so many artists right now that just got big from some dumb s***. When there’s so many little people on SoundCloud that nobody knows about that are just popping off, you know? It’s crazy.

Is your EP any indication of what the album will sound like? What can fans expect? Nobody can expect a thing. That’s as real as I could be about it… Having gone on tour a lot for the past – half of year, basically – I’ve just learned so much about what is fun to do live, what I like doing live, what the crowd likes to do to be with me live, So, basically, I’m just making music that’s going to be f***ing crazy, that I could just go off, you know? And I’m always changing. I never want to have a sound. I feel like if somebody thinks I have a sound, don’t listen to my music. I don’t want that. I don’t want to be one thing. I want to be everything in one, I guess. So [the album is] sort of just everything that I haven’t been yet.Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier.

“The Chinese producers we compete with in global markets do not have a significant presence in the US market, and so would not be impacted by US tariffs,” Apple wrote in the letter. “Neither would our other major non-US competitors.”Apple didn’t specifically name any rivals, but its letter likely referred to China-based Huawei and other rivals like Samsung. A year ago, Huawei — which is facing a US ban — overtook Apple to become the world’s second largest phone vendor. Huawei’s smartphones sales have soared even though it doesn’t have an official presence in the US, one of the world’s largest markets. Apple designs its phones in the US, but the devices — like many other electronics — are assembled in China. Its products have previously avoided added fees, but the ongoing trade war with China could expand tariffs to the various devices Apple sells. That could mean higher prices for consumers and would affect the amount of money Apple makes from its products. The USTR said Thursday that it doesn’t comment on specific submissions during the ongoing public notice and comment period. Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for additional comment. Trade battleAs part of its letter, Apple noted the large role it plays in the US economy. It’s “responsible” for over 2 million jobs across all 50 states, including Apple’s direct employees, manufacturing and retail partners and app developers who’ve benefited from creating software for Apple’s iPhones, iPads and other devices.

Future Publishing/Getty If the Office of the United States Trade Representative moves forward with more tariffs against China, it’d hurt Apple’s competitiveness and the amount of money it contributes to the US economy, the company argued this week. It urged the US not to move forward with new fees that would affect the iPhone and its other devices.In a letter to US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, dated Monday but released to the public Thursday, Apple said tariffs would “result in a reduction of Apple’s US economic contribution,” as the fees would impact all of its major products (iPhone, iPad, Mac, AirPods and Apple TV) as well as accessories like monitors, batteries and parts used to repair devices. What’s more, Apple said the tariffs could hurt its competitiveness and “tilt the playing field in favor of our global competitors.” After passage of US tax reform last year, Apple said it expected to contribute $350 billion to the US economy over a five-year period by opening new offices and hiring new workers. “We are pleased to report that we are on track to achieve this contribution,” said Apple’s letter this week.The first round of tariffs, announced a year ago and implemented earlier in 2019, affected more than 1,100 types of products. The US government specifically excluded “goods commonly purchased by American consumers such as cellular telephones or televisions.” That included iPhones. But more recent tariff plans would affect the iPhoneIf the Trump administration decides to impose tariffs on iPhones and other electronics, it’s likely that Apple and other companies would pass the increase on to consumers. Apple’s latest iPhones already start at $749 for the iPhone XR, $999 for the iPhone XS and $1,099 for the iPhone XS Max.Trump has long called for Apple to build its devices in the US, something that’s not likely to happen. On Wednesday, a report said Apple is considering moving 30% of iPhone production out of China and into places like Southeast Asia. Samsung assembles a big chunk of its smartphones in Vietnam.It’d be difficult for Apple to move such a large chunk of its smartphone production out of China, though.”Apple has ‘bet the farm’ on its flagship China production factory, which produces the vast majority of iPhones globally and represents the hearts and lungs of the Cupertino ecosystem,” Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives noted. He said that in the best case scenario, Apple would be able to move about 5% to 7% of iPhone production to India in the next 12 to 18 months. Moving 15% of production from China to other regions would take at least two to three years, he estimated.

U.S. chipmaker Qualcomm Inc forecast third-quarter profit below analysts estimates as it expects to ship fewer chips, including those for smart phones, its biggest business.The company’s shares dropped 3 percent to $50.50 in after market trading on Wednesday, having earlier oscillated between slight gains and losses.Qualcomm, whose customers include Apple Inc and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, said it expects chip shipments to fall 13-22 percent to 175-195 million in the current quarter.The company said it expects 3G and 4G device shipments increase to 8 percent at the midpoint in this quarter, lower than its previous estimate of about 10 percent growth.Besides slowing smart phone sales, Qualcomm is also being squeezed by competitors making chips that rival its own in price and performance, and the likes of Samsung and Apple increasingly making their own components for smart phones.Qualcomm said it expects to earn between 90 cents and $1.00 per share in the third quarter. Analysts on average were expecting a profit of $1.02 per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.Research firm Gartner expects global smart phone sales to grow in single digits in percentage terms for the first time ever this year, while Apple in January also forecast its first revenue drop in 13 years.The uncertainty in the smart phone business seemed to show in the company’s third-quarter revenue forecast of $5.2-$6.0 billion, which implies revenue could be between 11 percent lower and 3 percent higher than the year-ago quarter.However, while Qualcomm’s chip business is the bigger contributor to revenue, the San Diego-based company’s business of licensing its chip technology is the bigger driver of profit.But here too the company has faced delays in closing licensing agreements in China, its biggest market.Qualcomm, which has recently signed new deals with several companies including Lenovo, said on Wednesday it was still in talks with key Chinese smart phone makers to sign agreements.Revenue at Qualcomm’s chipmaking division and its licensing business fell, 25 percent and 12 percent respectively, in the latest quarter, dragging down total revenue for the fourth quarter in a row.However, the 19.5 percent drop, to $5.55 billion, in the three months ended March 27, was less than the nearly 23 percent drop analysts were expecting.Net income attributable to Qualcomm rose 10.5 percent to $1.16 billion, or 78 cents per share. Excluding items, it earned $1.04 per share, beating average analyst’ estimate of $0.96.
