- Kamala Harris gave a blunt refresher on President Donald Trump’s finances early on in the vice-presidential debate Wednesday night.
- “It would be really good to know who the president of the United States — the commander-in-chief — owes money to,” Harris said, referring to The New York Times’ investigation into Trump’s taxes that found him in debt for hundreds of millions of dollars in debt, $139 million of which he’s on the hook for within five years.
- “Because the American people have a right to know what is influencing the president’s decisions, and is he making those decisions on the best interests of the American people — of you — or self-interest.”
- “Just so everyone is clear, when we say in debt, it means you owe money to somebody” Harris said.
- She also took a dig at Trump for how little he paid in federal income taxes.

Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris of California still has not Googled President Trump’s publicly available financial disclosure forms — at least, that is the only thing that explains why she suggested Wednesday during the vice presidential debate that we do not know where the president owes money.
“It would be really good,” said Harris. “to know who the president of the United States, the commander-in-chief, owes money to.”
As I have written before, a comprehensive breakdown of the president’s liabilities can be found in his 2019 public financial disclosure (see page 35), which was released this summer by the Office of Government Ethics. The institutions to which Trump owes a great deal of money include Ladder Capital Finance LLC, Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, Amboy Bank, and Chicago Unit Acquisition LLC.

(Reuters) – The number of Americans filing new claims for jobless benefits inched down last week, signaling the U.S. labor market is making little fresh headway in getting millions of people back on the job after being out of work due to COVID-19 disruptions.
Initial claims for state unemployment benefits totaled a seasonally adjusted 840,000 for the week ended Oct. 3, compared with an upwardly revised 849,000 in the prior week, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast 820,000 applications in the latest week.
While last week’s level of new claims was the lowest since March, they have stalled at historically high levels after dropping below 1 million in August as the government changed the way it strips seasonal fluctuations from the data. They are above their 665,000 peak during the 2007-09 Great Recession, though filings have dropped from a record 6.867 million at the

The United Nurses of Alberta (UNA) has “rejected stability during a pandemic” by demanding labour talks next month, charges Alberta’s finance minister.
Finance Minister Travis Toews in a Thursday afternoon news release said he is “extremely disappointed” with UNA leadership’s rejection of Alberta Health Services’ (AHS) proposal to delay labour negotiations.
But the UNA says enough time has gone by since the leadership agreed to press pause on collective agreement negotiations when the pandemic struck the province in March. Now, it’s asking AHS to resume bargaining talks Nov. 16.
AHS “rejected that proposal, instead suggesting that the two bargaining teams next meet on March 31, 2021,” the union said in a Thursday statement.
“UNA declined the AHS position to delay negotiations until 2021, as well as an offer to delay layoffs until that date. UNA believes that any layoffs should be
