trump on friday, last week friday. and this is when two days before, it was written that his decision had been made on daca, he was going to rescind the program, but give this sort of six month window for congress the act. this source came away om the conversation with the president, convinced that his mind was not made up. and daca has been something i can't speak to why, whether he genuinely feels for these kids who are brought to america, through no fault of their own, by their parents, and you know had been shielded temporarily by the obama administration or whether he just understands that the politics an the media for him, the images of him getting rid of this program will be so bad. but for one or other reason he has grappled with this in a way that he hasn't grappled with any other policy decision throughout the first eight months of his
11:40 pm
administration. he has been very reluctant to rescind daca. i still think it's a very open question what happens in six months. there's very little chance congress will deal with this because congress can't deal with anything. and if trump has to then revisit it in six months' time who knows what he'll do? >> rose: who is urging him to go ahead and rescind it now? >> oh jeff sessions, the attorney general. i mean so trump has been -- i mean their relationship, you know, effectively died -- it will never be what it was but it effectively died about four months ago, or whenever it was that sessions reaccused himself from overseeing the -- recused himself over the russian situation. sessions has been in the icebox, they haven't been communicating one on one, look at the picture of his face before he did the press conference announcing that they were rescinding daca. he has this boyish grin on his face. sessions has lived for this.

11:45 pm
>> rose: when rolling stone said toughest and best in a decade, when they use the word toughest, what do you think they mean? >> it's hard to know. somebody heard it and that was their interpretation. out it in the fact that it iss a return to the way i used to make records which was just a couple of us in a room, some drum autographs and me on base and jeff trot my worthy musical husband, for years, co-writer, on the guitar and really getting to the heart of it. you know there's not a lot of dressing on this record. it's just very in-your-face. and i think we really i think tackled a lot of big things. >> rose: like what? >> you know, i'm raising two little boys. and in this period, of our evolution, as humans on this planet, there's so many things that are infiltrating our little people's minds and that our -- i guess in some ways informing them about who they are when you
11:46 pm
consider that the internet is just this dangerous place that you have to try the protect them from. and cell phones and social media are constantly telling them what's awesome and what's likable. and it's just -- it's the wild west. and for me, as an artist, i get to sit back and talk about what that is to me, what that feels like as a parent. what it feels like as an american, particularly during this election, a lot of what happened in the election informed what's on the record. halfway there which was the first song they put out really addressed the loss of civility in our dialogue. and it really just begs the question is there no way to agree to disagree? ♪ ♪ i know what's best let's disagree to disagree ♪ ♪ that youal know the rest yeah
