NPR新闻[翻译]:白宫变冷宫 特朗普发推哀叹孤苦伶仃

发表时间:2018-12-30内容来源:VOA英语学习网

On this day before Christmas, President Trump remains at the White House facing a number of challenges. And as he put it on Twitter, he is, quote, "all alone." Now, Trump may be referring to the fact that Congress has left town as a partial government shutdown continues. But that is not the only reason President Trump is more isolated these days.

NPR's Tamara Keith is at the White House and joins me now. Hi, Tam.

TAMARA KEITH, HOST: Hello.

KELLY: So he's not all alone. You're there, too.

KEITH: Yes. I'm in the basement, far, far away from where he is.

KELLY: Right. So talk about some of the challenges that he's dealing with that may lead to this I'm-all-alone tweet.

KEITH: Well, he's in this standoff with Democrats over reopening parts of the government. He's on the defensive about a sliding stock market. Members of his own party are very unhappy with his decision to pull forces out of Syria and are trying to convince him to reverse course. And all of this is happening as there have been some really major departures from his administration, many of them by his own choosing, but leaving him more isolated headed into the new year. And at least today he's spending much of the day on Twitter.

KELLY: Among the things he's tweeting about — the shutdown. And I want to just stop you there for a second, Tam. Is there any movement at all on a deal that will reopen the government after the holiday?

KEITH: No. They apparently are not spending this time in hot negotiations certainly. So Trump tweeted, quote, "I am all alone. Poor me in the White House waiting for Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed border security. At some point, the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our country more money than the border wall we are talking about — crazy," exclamation point.

KELLY: That's all a direct quote from the president's Twitter feed.

KEITH: Yes, that was not me. And then Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic leaders in the House and Senate, put out a statement of their own. They say, it's Christmas Eve, and President Trump is plunging the country into chaos. Then later on they say, different people from the same White House are saying different things about what the president would accept or not accept to end this shutdown, making it impossible to know where they stand at any given moment, which makes it seem highly unlikely that this shutdown is ending anytime soon.

Congress is due back potentially on Thursday, but already people are talking at — people including the president's budget director are talking about this shutdown lasting into the new year and the new Congress.

KELLY: And meanwhile there's this ongoing churn in his administration. How many actings are we up to at this point, Tam?

KEITH: [Laughter] Well, it depends on how you count. But there's an acting attorney general. There is an acting chief of staff. There is soon to be an acting defense secretary because President Trump moved to have James Mattis, the defense secretary — he had planned to stay on until February. President Trump tweeted yesterday, and he — and Mattis was notified, no, your services will not be needed after the first of the year. There's also an acting EPA administrator. And the new ambassador to the U.N. is awaiting confirmation. That is a lot. Meanwhile, the president is also tweeting about the Federal Reserve, saying that it is the only problem that the economy has.

KELLY: And tweeting about the economy — this is a problem, the stock market losses today that you mentioned, Tam, because this is something that the president has often used to frame his presidency in a really positive light.

KEITH: Yeah. I mean, as recently as last month he was boasting at rallies. How great are your 401[k]s doing, everybody? As he looks to re-election in 2020, there is a very real fear of losing support because people's 401[k]s aren't doing so hot anymore. And, you know, at least based on what he's tweeting — and that is the way we know what he's thinking — the president is projecting a lot of vulnerability right now.

KELLY: NPR White House correspondent Tamara Keith, one of at least a couple people at the White House this Christmas Eve, thanks so much.

KEITH: You're welcome.

参考译文:

圣诞节前一天,仍留在白宫的特朗普总统面临着多项挑战。就如他在推特上写的那样——“孤单一人”。特朗普指的可能是国会议员离开华盛顿这一事实,因为目前部分政府部门仍处于关门状态。但是这并不是特朗普总统这些天尤为孤立的唯一原因。

NPR新闻的塔玛拉·基思现在在白宫,她将和我们连线。你好。塔姆。

塔玛拉·基思:你好。

凯利:他并不是孤单一人。你也在那里。

基思:对。不过我在地下室,离他的办公室非常非常远。

凯利:好。我们来谈谈他正在应对的一些挑战,这些挑战可能导致了他推特中说的“孤苦伶仃”。

基思:在让部分政府部门重新开门这一问题上,他与民主党人僵持不下。他对股市下跌进行了辩护。他所在政党的成员对他要求美军撤离叙利亚的决定非常不满,他们在试图说服他改变政策。所有这些事情发生时,正值一些重量级政府官员离职,其中许多人是由特朗普亲自选择的,但是这些官员的离职使他在即将进入新一年时更加孤立。至少今天他大部分时间都在发推特。

凯利:他推特上提到的其中一件事是政府停摆。塔姆,我希望你来谈谈这个问题。就假期之后让政府重新开门来说,目前有没?#34892;?#35758;在协商?

基思:没?#23567;?#26174;然他们现在并没有进行热烈的?#33268;邸?#25152;以特朗普才在推特上说,“我孤零零地一人(可怜的我)在白宫等待民主党人回来,就急需解决的边境安全问题达成协议。在某些时候,民主党人不想达成协议,这将使我们的国?#19968;?#36153;比我们所谈论的边境墙预算更多的钱,太疯狂了。”

凯利:这是直接引用的总统发表的推文。

基思:对,不是我说的。随后众议院和?#25105;?#38498;的民主党领袖查克·舒默和南希·佩洛西发表了联合声明。他们表示,特朗普总统在圣诞节前夜让国家“陷入混乱”。他们还表示,“对于总统为了结束政府关门状态愿意接受或不愿意接受什么条件,来自同一个白宫的不同人士却有不同的说辞,令人无法知道他们在任何特定时刻的立场,这使政府停摆看起来几乎不可能在近期内结束。”

国会议员可能在周四重新开始工作,但是已经有人开始谈论……包括总统的预算办公室主任在内,人们都在说这次政府停摆可能?#20013;?#33267;新一年和新一届国会会期。

凯利:同时,本届政府正在进行人事调整。塔姆,现在有多少代理负责人?

基思:(笑)这取决于你如何计算。现在?#20889;?#29702;司法部长和代理白宫办公厅主任。代理国防部长将在不久后上任,因为特朗普总统赶走了原定任职至明年2月的国防部长詹姆斯·马蒂斯。特朗普总统昨天在推特上说,马蒂斯已被通知,不用了,元旦过后就再不需要你的服务了。现在还?#20889;?#29702;环保署署长。另外,新任美国驻联合国大使正在等待提名确认。这一名单很长。同时,总统还在推特上提到了美联储,他说美联储是美国经济的“唯一问题”。

凯利:特朗普在推特上谈到了经济,这是一个问题,塔姆,你刚才提到股市在今天下挫,而总统经常用经济来证明他的任期处于积极向上的态势。

基思:对。他在上个月举行的集会上还吹嘘了一番。他?#23454;潰?#20320;们的401[K]退休账户税收优惠计划的表现有多好?他希望在2020年寻求连任,所以非常担?#24149;?#22833;去支持,因为人们的401[K]退休账户税收优惠计划的表现已经不再那么抢眼了。至少从他发表的推特来看,?#27604;?#36825;也是我们了解他想法的方?#21073;?#24635;统暴露出了很多弱点。

凯利:以上是NPR新闻驻白宫记者塔玛拉·基思带来的报道,在圣诞节前夜至少有两个人留在白宫,而塔玛拉是其中之一,非常谢谢你。

基思:不?#25512;?/p>
