tv New Day With Alisyn Camerota and John Berman CNN March 19, 2021 2:59am-4:00am PDT
trip to atlanta taking on a whole new significance. >> the president will offer his support for the aaip community in georgia and across the country. >> they'll look into what led to a mass shooting spree that left eight dead including six asian women. >> it has been such a challenge, we're actively looking at guidance to update it. >> the president promised 100 million shots in 100 days. >> it's outpacing the ability of our vaccines to work. welcome to our view ers in the united states and all around the world. it's 6:00 in new york. alisyn is off. erica is here. >> just here to help. >> this morning vice president harris will meade with asian-american leaders in atlanta, offering support to their community grappling with
fears and frustration after a deadly shooting spree in three spas around the city. police are working to determine the gunman's motive and they say nothing is off the table in the investigation. the shooting sparks a rise. protesters outside one of the spas calling for justice, demanding the police call the attack what they say it is, a hate crime. now, this is a time when you think all americans could come together to speak out against this kind of racism, which is why the grandstanding against congressman chip roy spoke out. >> meantime the biden administration will meet its goal of 100 million vaccine shots in arms that. is 42 days ahead of schedule, the u.s. now averaging 2.5
million vaccinations a day. nearly 35% of the population is vaccinated. there's a major change that could help get more students back into classrooms, but we do want to begin with our top story. it's the latest in the atlanta shooting investigations. cnn's natasha chen joins us live. natasha good morning. >> reporter: good morning, erica. we're in cherokee county where the suspect is being held in a detention fa sillcility behind . as you mentioned, later this afternoon president biden and vice president harris will be meeting with members from the state legislature and local advocacy groups to discuss the next steps in how to support the asian community after such violence has affected them. outside three atlanta area spas, demonstrations of solidarity.
>> i'm here to stand in solidarity with them, let them know that the country is with asian-americans. >> reporter: the suspect is in jail this morning and charged with eight counts of murder. >> nothing is off the table for our investigation. >> reporter: the suspect fr frequented the two spas in the city. >> we had four asian females that were killed, and so we are looking at everything to make sure that we discover and determine what the motive of our homicides were. >> reporter: the sheriff attended a vigil for the four people killed there. >> we don't want to leave any stone unturned. we're committed to a sloolid killer. >> it looked like a hate crime
to me. this was targeted at asian spas. six of the women who were killed were asian. what we know about the definition of a hate crime, it can also be based on someone who targets women. >> reporter: today she'll meet with president biden and vice president harris and state leaders. >> what started out last january, dirty looks and verbal assaults, has escalated into visible violence against asian-americans. >> reporter: congressman chip roy said this. >> who decides what is hate? who decides what is the kind of speech that deserves policing? >> reporter: but when democratic
lawmaker pushed back. >> this hearing was to address the hurt and pain of our community, to find solutions, and we will not let you take our voice away from us. >> reporter: the four people killed here in cherokee county have been identified, but in atlanta, the four people killed there, all of them asian women, their names have not yet been released. atlanta police say part of the difficulty is reaching next of kin. erica. >> natasha with the latest for us. more shots in arms this morning as the race between vaccines and vaccine variants intensifies. the biden administration is set to hit its goal of 100 million vaccinations. since taking office, that goal will be met today. athena jones live in hoboken, new jersey, which is loosening some of its restrictions today. we're seeing a lot of that around the country, athena.
>> reporter: good morning, erica. we are. new jersey is increasing its capacity limits like restaurants, gyms, and barbershops to 50% and slightly increasing gathers indoors. these changes are coming not just in this state but new concerns about the coronavirus variants. >> 100 million shots of vaccine in people's arms. >> reporter: today the biden administration expects the u.s. to reach its goal of 100 million shots in arms in his first 100 days in office. the administration is crossing this goal on his 58th full day, 42 days ahead of schedule. and while biden's vaccine goal is above schedule, the reopening plans for schools is in flux. there's a recommendation from
six feet in distance to three feet. >> this is urgent, don't get me wrong. >> reporter: the united states will experience another surge in coronavirus cases. 11 states have seen an increase in new covid cases since last week, with blame seeing a rise by more than 50%, the increase coming in part because of the spread of coronavirus variants. some states are rolling back coronavirus restrictions and easing mask requirements. those vaccinated are urged to continue to mask. there's a clash on capitol hill between dr. anthony fauci and senator rand paul. >> what studies do you have that people who have had the vaccine or have had the vaccine are spreading the vaccine? you have a vaccine and you're wearing two masks. isn't that theater? >> here we go again with the
the theater. let's talk about the facts. when you don't wear the masks and keep down the variants, that's an entirely different ball game. >> reporter: paul's home state of kentucky has a mask mandate in place but easing restrictions and upping restaurant capacity up to 50%. fauci says paul is dead wrong in his assessment of masks and reinfection can occur because of variants increasing. >> rand paul says let's not wear a mask. they could get reinfected again and get into trouble. >> reporter: and this potential or expected change to guidelines for social distancing in schools from six feet to three feet is important for two reasons. one, it's a recognition that many schools across the country, six feet in distance has been hard to achieve.
changing the recommendation with everyone wearing masks is going to make it more possible for children to go back to school. >> among other things, it's about strengthening. it will absolutely change the landscape for so many schools. so this morning the type of diplomatic tension you almost never see in public, top u.s. and chinese officials in their first face-to-face meetings -- this is happening in alaska -- it was an on-camera conversation with tony blinken talking about china. >> we'll discuss china including hong kong, taiwan, cyber attacks on the united states, economic coercion toward our allies. the alternative is might makes right and winners take all, and that would be a far more violent
and unstable world for all of us. >> to say it set off an unusual back-and-forth would be an enormous understatement. the back and forth between the chinese and united states still going on as we speak, david. this is as clear of a signal as you can get on how this relationship standing right now and and what it will be going forward. >> reporter: john, it's also a major acknowledgement they're no longer dealing with the trump administration. you saw what secretary blinken said there, his prepared remarks. the response in that moment from the chinese was really quite aggressive, quite strong. they say as of a few hours ago that it was the u.s. who provoked this, the u.s. was coming in and being aggressive and taking more time than was agreed on. but i want you to listen to what the chinese official had to say
vsvia translattranslator. take a listen. >> reporter: isn't this the intention of the united states judging from what -- or the way that you have made your opening remarks that it wants to speak to china in a condescending way from a position of strength. >> reporter: so they come off very strong in there. but the chinese seem to approach this as though they were dealing with the prior administration and going after, for example, secretary of state at the time pompeo, who would come in with harsh rhetoric. they did not encounter that in this moment. it almost seems they were planning to go up against ego, if you will, and instead they encountered secretary blinken who in his response, which was offscript, was very self-aware, acknowledging that the u.s. is transparent and they're open and a self-awareness to say that's how you get to a better union or more perfect union in his words by being clean about it,
acknowledging it in the open. the chinese now have to reassess and look at this at a different approach. in many ways it's very challenging for them. they have to figure out how do you recalibrate and approach the biden administration? and if it feels like it's all heated rhetoric with no substance, one senior official said twbehind the scenes there more substance. there is no question that right now the chinese are probably having to figure out how to reassess the u.s. going forward because they seem to have gone into this, john, quite frankly, looking for the domestic headlines, and the domestic headlines for state media, controlled media are reflective of that. they say the chinese officials went in and held the u.s. to account and the utah.s. was cond
condescending, but it seems there is hope for some constructive back-and-forth. >> the u.s. headlines say tony blinken stood up going toe to toe with china, both countries playing each other's sides. very notable. david culver, thank you very much as always for your reporting. so six asians gunned down in georgia, hate crimes spiking across the country. so naturally republican chip roy of texas seems to think the biggest victim is him. that's next. ♪ comfort in the extreme. ♪ tsome say this is myf greatest challenge ever. ♪ but i've seen centuries of this. with a companion that powers a digital world, traded with a touch.
criticized those speaking on asian-americans. >> you know, we take justice very seriously, and we ought to do that, round up the bad guys. i'm not going to be ashamed to say i oppose the chi-coms and communist party. who decide as what is hate, who deserves policing? joining us now is congresswoman jayapal. what was this hearing about? >> it was supposed to be about hate because of the rising tide of hate crimes against asians across the country. elderly men and women being attacked in streets, seeing a
rise in slurs across the country. georgia happened a couple of days before and we're suffering still with the murder of at least six asian-american women in georgia. that's what it was supposed to be about. >> why does chip roy think it's a criticism against the government? >> it was a stunning statement. the reference to lynching, proudly referencing lynching, but then on top of that, the callousness of not recognizing you can criticize a country, of course, but that's not what we're talking about. we're talking about words, racism, discrimination, that is targeted toward a group of people and that incites violence and hate across the country. you know, john, just a couple of weeks ago in a budget hearing, i
think it was. some of my republican colleagues continue to use the term china virus, which we all know is a racist slur. the w.h.o. said don't tie the virus to a country, that is not accurate. i spoke up and asked them not to use that because i think that all of these ways in which asian-americans are depicted is why we see a rise in crime. they continue to do it. we were all stunned by chip roy. we're stunned by what happened in georgia. and the intersection of racism, classism, and sexism altogether is stunning. >> what stuns me is we're clearly at a moment when asian-americans feel they're under attack. that's undeniable that they feel they're being singled out, you are being singled out.
as i was watching that, i kept wondering where's the empathy? i mean where is the outreach? where is the sense that i acknowledge this is a moment of real pain? >> there was really very little of that if any from the other side. in fact, at one point one of the republican colleagues said, oh, the statistics are not that bad, and proceeded to say, well, it's only "x" percent for asian-americans versus "x" percent for latinas and blacks. it was really stunning that somehow that was okay. and in the wake of georgia, it made it so much worse. i think my republican colleagues are so call up in the racist terminology that has been made popular, mainstream by donald trump and his administration that they are not able to see
that compassion anymore, they're not able to see as my colleague said later, the tar against that they're putting on our backs, on the backs of our elders, children, our neighbors, they're just unwilling to see any of that. >> on a separate suspect, kevin mccarthy yesterday, the house republican leader, had an interesting exchange with cnn's manu raju. let's play this out. >> i disagree with the premise of your question. if you challenged pennsylvania and arizona, would that have changed and lowered president biden's numbers below 270? >> he would have -- >> no, no, no. you ask me questions every week. i'm just asking you a question. if you removed arizona -- not removing it, but you were asking about it. if they were removed in an
electoral college, would president biden's number be below 270. >> no, but donald trump said -- >> no, no, no. i'm not donald trump. you're asking me the question. let me answer your question since you asked me. let me follow through. so you gave a premise that's not true. >> they tried to overturn the results in congress and that's not true. >> let me show you how your premise is not true. i'm showing where your question doesn't hold merit. >> but you supported the texas lawsuit. do you support that? >> no, i don't. do you know why? >> did you or did you not support donald trump's plan to overturn the election in congress in. >> no. >> we played out the whole thing so you could see the gymnastics of what's going on there.
what's your takeaway? >> he's a rabbit hopping from one side to the other, rewriting history. kevin mccarthy is trying to play all sides when he clearly was supporting turning over the election, he's continuously been supporting donald trump by going down to mar-a-lago. at the same time he doesn't want to be seen that way because he knows it's wrong. i think it's absurd for him to try to rewrite history, but honestly, john, very little surprises me these days about republicans. they continue to be obstructionists. they have decided they're going to continue down the same path they were on for the past four years, and if that means the republican embraces proud boys and discrimination against asians and tries to rewrite history about whether or not they -- you know, whether or not they supported overturning the election, they don't care. there is no truth anymore on the other side, i'm sorry to say

situation. great to have you with us this morning. british medical regulators just before we heard from their european counterparts said there was no evidence that the vaccine causes blood clots. that being said, as i'm sure you know, there's been a fair amount of damage done to public confidence. a recent poll in france shows just 22% of the population trusts the astrazeneca vaccine. how concerned are you about that confidence? how do you rebuild it? >> there was a very rare event suggested to be associated with vaccination was looked up very quickly by the regulators in all 27 countries and came to a view yesterday that really there was no concern, and that's exactly what the british regulators had seen independently in an even larger sample size. so this process, which is normal in the deployment of any new
medicine including vaccines is really important to enhance public confidence. now, there are challenges always with vaccines that are given to healthy people that are greater than with drugs that are used to cure disease, so people need to keep working on this because this is an extremely important vaccine. it's the global vaccine against covid. it's going to be more widely distributed than any other vaccine. it's in 71 countries at the moment, i understand, so it's absolutely crucial that processes like this are followed through, ideally very quickly, but thoroughly to restore public confidence. >> but in terms of restoring public confidence, is there something you would see in, perhaps, a change to the messaging? >> so the messaging is being worked on continuously. it's more challenging in the low income countries where this vaccine is being very widely distributed at the moment, and, you know, 30 million people in india have already been vaccinated with this vaccine.
and, by the way, there were only two cases in 30 million of the suggested issue in india, so that was really reassuring. so, yes, it is an ongoing work in progress that astrazeneca are working on. the public health authorities have been working on it. there was work done in january. it was approved for all age groups. there was a discussion about that. but there's no magic bullet except what we found in the uk was pretty reassuring. those surveys you mentioned, initially 60% to 70% wanted the vaccine. once it was available and people were invited, the uptick is about 95%. hopefully we see that in france. as you know, there's a supply issue in france.
>> absolutely. as you point out, the vaccine here in the united states, you haven't applied for emergency use authorization, but we have three vaccines going into arms. the smooth rollout hasn't gone as anticipated. in a call, trials have quietly been stopped according to reporting from "the new york times" two days after the call. the fda found out about it after the news broke. the fda at the time was, quote, stunned to hear about it. how concerned are you that perhaps missteps in this country could affect astrazeneca's rollout? >> we're not. it was not a misstep. you have a seven-day reporting window and we were well within that. the press gets that information. that was not a failure of reporting. it was absolutely in the
timeline. it was not a misstep. and we are not concerned. if one thing were to change that would speed up the deployment of many vaccines in the u.s. in a pandemic, that could be done, and that is not to insist on u.s. data for licensing vaccines that are developed for the world. and that's really what has delayed the review in the u.s. the requirement to have data in 30,000, 35,000 people. and the good news is the data is pretty well in, and we should except an application very soon, and many authorities are expecting licecensure next mont >> appreciate you, adrian hill. >> thank you. a rise in tensions and what it means for foreign policy. that's next. happened.

decades, president biden called putin a killer and then putin either physically threatened biden or staged a trumping attack on his acuity, depending on how you look at it. cnn's matthew chance live in moscow with a new twist this morning. matthew. >> reporter: john, thanks very much. the kremlin has doubled down on its offer for a live online discussion or debate between vladimir putin and president biden of the united states saying the kremlin would be available but the offer would not be on the table in definitely. he asked why he's allowing an online discussion and he said because this is unprecedented.
there was an extremely angry response from the russians over the past couple of days since the remarks by president biden that vladimir putin was a killer, and president putin here in russia yesterday was saying that he wishes president biden good health. that was essentially the summation of his response to that comment. he said he meant that without any joking or irony. that has been interpreted in some corners as a threat. it was more like playing into this whole situation at the moment on russia state media which is trying to cast president biden as frail, too old to hold this position. that's been backed up by another senior official here in russia.
medvedev said, look, i met with president biden in previous events. he gave me the impression he was reasonable, however, time hasn't been kind to him. i can only quote freud. nothing is more expensive than stew illness and stupidity. and he's talking about this whole idea perpetuated through the russian media. the comments made were impacted by his mental capabilities. that's what the russians basically are saying about the u.s. president, john. >> it's amazing how it lines up with former president trump and his advisers. susan, big picture we're seeing with russia and china is a deliberate repositioning on the
part of the department of the u.s. with other countries. they're very different. i think what they're trying to do with each country is very different. let's start with russia. what's going on here? >> well, i think you're right to note it's hard not to note there's a con very judge between the russian rhetoric and attack on joe biden and what we've heard from donald trump and his supporters including donald trump jr. just yesterday in response to all this with russia, once again put ought the exact same argument that somehow joe biden doesn't want to debate vladimir putin. it's very trumpian. interestingly you're seeing with both russia and china now that donald trump is gone as president, they seem determined to fill his space, a little bit of his space on the international stage with public three
theatrics. that's what's happening in alaska with key american officials and the biden administration. so both great powers, i think, who are the rivals of the united states are testing, challenging, and probing this new administration right now to see where does this rivalry and competition end up. >> it's also interesting in looking at that, they've announced a bilateral meeting that. too, is sending a message. >> international diplomacy is carefully choreographed. i have multiple audiences. right now i think it's important to remember russia and china have internal ought jenss as we well. i think a certain amount of hawkishness from the russians and the chinese is something that plays well for them domestically. vladimir putin has a lot he'd like to distract the russian people from, including his
crackdown on a huge wave of protests that greeted his arrest and imprisonment of the leading dissident, the fact there are more u.s. sanctions coming from the new administration and president biden. there's politics that go both ways to this. >> how is the biden administration trying to position itself toward russia and china? i think it's very different. i think in a way they're trying to say, russia, you're not really that important anymore. you're a little country compared to us in many ways. china, the exact opposite and in a way is espousing what is a bipartisan sentiment in the u.s. that china is a main competitor. >> so i think you're right to point out there is a distinction between president biden and his team and their approach to the two different countries, russia and china taking a much tougher line with china embracing more or less the view that democrats and republicans have come to
adapt in the last few years. tony blinken, the new secretary of state, in his confirmation hearing said, you know, i agree with the trump administration on china in terms of its analysis that china remains the biggest geopolitical threat to the united states in the long term. where we disagree maybe is in the approach, and i do think you're seeing them take much more effort to consult with allies, to make the point that it's not just the u.s. confronting these two great powers, but it's much more about the west and an alliance of people. but this meeting right now that's happening in alaska with blinken, the secretary of state, and jake sullivan, the national security adviser, i think it's very significant. the chinese agreed to meet on u.s. soil in alaska, which is very significant. that might explain their public grandstanding and theatrics at the opening where the chinese delegation leader had an
18-minute rant against the united states, again, testing them, which takes a much more hawkish line under biden. >> susan glasser, thank you so much for your time. >> thank you youshocking new video showing capitol police officers beaten and sprayed with chemicals during the january 6th riot. now the fbi needs your help to find the attackers. details next. and your taxes could have changed too. let our tax pros work for you and fight for every dollar you deserve. allergies don't have to be scary. spraying flonase daily stops your body from overreacting to allergens all season long. psst psst you're good

the fbi releasing graphic new video of rioters beating capitol police officers, spraying them with chemicals during the january 6th insurrection, and they're releasing it because they're asking for help identifying the rioters seen on tape. just when you think the video can't become more graphic, we see these moments. >> absolutely. it shows the venom and anger and violence on the day. fbi is looking for tips. here's the first video. this is video of a man coming
out of a crowd and punching a police officer. here's next video. and these are just four of about ten the fbi is releasing. in this other video, a man is walking up, here he is, holding something in his hand. watch his hand, spraying officers with some sort of chemical irritant. this is alarming because what we know is two men were already arrested this week for spraying a chemical irritant at officer brian sicknick. we know he later died. so we know how dangerous these chemicals could have been in the field. although, in that case, not directly linked to his death at this time. here's a third video. a man is grabbing a police officer by his helmet and face mask, banging his head into a door jam. we actually spoke with this officer from metropolitan police department. his name is daniel hodges, and he described to cnn his assailant as practically foaming at the mouth.
finally, here's a fourth video, video of a man with a pole in the hallway of the capitol beating police. there's going to be, i think -- i believe another angle on this in a moment, or at least you can see the circle. yeah, here's the other angle that. is so violent, so alarming, erica. and what all of these videos in aggregate prove is that these prosecutors are persevering in their effort to bring justice to all of the -- you know, bring all of the people to justice who assaulted these officers. we know 65 people have been charged with assault total. there are hundreds of -- hundreds of people have been charged total. hundreds more to go. the hope is out there, someone watching out there right now can help bring these people to justice. >> let's hope that is what happens. thank you. democrats facing mounting criticism from republicans over efforts that could overturn a house gop victory in iowa. we have that story for you next.

miller meeks with hart. >> we'll see where that takes us. there could be a scenario to that extent. >> reporter: it would be an extremely rare move fr. 1933 to 2009, the house has considered 111 election cases, only three have led to an unseating. the republicans call this a hypocritical partisan power grab pointing to the criticisms of president trump to overturn the election results in november. >> trump tried to overturn the results in congress and you supported that effort. >> now you're saying something that's not true. >> for him to call anyone hypocritical when two-thirds of them voted to reject the presidency of joe biden, well, it's just who they are. >> reporter: both campaigns have until march 29th to answer written questions. the house committee basically
essentially laying out the case before them, and democrats, john, still pushing ahead to replace potentially a republican who had been serving here in congress for months. john. >> sunlen serfaty, thank you. keep us posted.
