2:59 am
been hosting this week. my vote for the next one, christine romans. >> you know, berman actually i think he's very good at this, too. >> i know. he has a lot of feelings about how well he did. >> just ask him. all right. thanks for joining us, everybody, i'm christine romans. hi, john. >> i'm laura jarrett. "new day" starts right now. hello. i'm brianna keilar alongside john berman. lebron james is under fire for a tweet targeting an officer involved in a shooting. plus just in, president biden revealing what changes are coming to the u.s. and your household to fight the climate crisis. once you get the coronavirus vaccine, what are your chances of being infected? a brand-new study may give us the answer. and newly revealed audiotape allegedly showing a capitol officer directing units hours before the insurrection to only
3:00 am
monitor anti-trump protesters. hello. good morning to our viewers in the united states and around the world. it is thursday, april 22nd. this morning tensions over policing in america is still incredibly high one day after celebrating the derek chauvin guilty verdict. minneapolis is in mourning yet again. daunte wright is being laid to rest. this is 11 days after being fatally shot by a police officer during a traffic stop. police say a former police officer accidentally withdrew her gun instead of her taser. last night family and the
3:01 am
community gathered to mourn the loss. elsewhere, derek chauvin awaits a sentencing date after being convicted of murdering george floyd. he's been held in a restricted housing unit similar to this one for his own safety. and the justice department is launching an investigation that employed him. meanwhile lebron james is facing backlash for a two-world post about a separate police shooting in ohio. athena jones joins us now live from columbus. athena. >> reporter: good morning, john. there is anger and frustration and demand for answer this morning in columbus. many people feel this is another case of police not valuing this young black girl's life. meanwhile the police department law enforcement is stressing accountability. they say the department was able to release the initial body camera footage within about 5 1/2 hours, which is faster
3:02 am
than they've ever been able to do so. anger and frustration in columbus, ohio. with protesters deanimaling answers about the death of 16-year-old ma'khia bryant, shot and killed by police officers on tuesday. lebron james also expressing his outrage over the shooting, sending a now deleted tweet with a photo of a columbus, ohio, police officer at the scene of the shooting with the caption, "you're next #accountability." james later tweeted why he removed the tweet. he said i took the tweet down because it's being used to create more hate. it's not about one officer. it's about the entire system. i'm so desperate for more accountability. this frustration shared by many seeking answers as an investigation is under way
3:03 am
looking into the fatal shooting of the teen who police say attempted to stab two people with a knife. >> regardless of the circumstances associated with this, a 16-year-old girl lost her life, and i sure as hell wish it wouldn't have happened. >> reporter: the final minutes of bryant's life unfolding in just seconds. we warn you, it's disturbing showing officer nicholas reirden responding to a 911 call from an unknown caller on tuesday afternoon. >> we've got a girl trying to fight us, stab us, put her hands on our grandma. get us now. >> reporter: the officer approaches the group outside on the driveway outside the home. the officer tries to push her to the ground before she goes at another wearing pink. despite efforts to save her on the scene, the teen died. authorities releasing this slowed-down video seemingly showing bryant holding a knife in her hand, aiming it toward
3:04 am
the person in pink. in the wake of the shooting, the mayor is asking the community to wait as the city investigates to see whether the officer's actions were justified. >> we don't yet have all of the facts, but we do know that a 16-year-old girl, a child of this community tragically died. >> reporter: and this officer is on paid leave while an independent investigation being carried out by the bureau of criminal investigations -- that's part of the attorney general's office -- is under way. >> athena jones for us in columbus, ohio. keep us posted. joining us now is anthony barksdale, the former baltimore deputy police commissioner. you believe the officer's actions in this video we just saw are justified why? >> the officer used lethal force when he saw that another
3:05 am
citizen, another person, human being, was in clear and imminent danger of being stabbed. the officer used his service weapon to stop the threat. officers are trained to shoot center mass, and that is your core, the chest area, your torso, and that is what he did to stop the threat. so if we're looking at policing, the officer used his training. he also was in the legal area that's needed to use force. so i stand on that this unfortunate, tragic incident was justified from a policing perspective. >> anthony, i understand what you're saying. i certainly understand up here. i think we all know a knife is a
3:06 am
dangerous weapon even if it isn't a gun, but there are so many people who are looking at this as parents. i think of this as if this were my child or i think of the girl who was in pink, if she were my child. she was so close to ma'khia. she also could have easily been shot. there were four shots. i wonder what could have been different. couldn't something have been different? >> when you're going to use -- like i know that many say taser. depending on the distance -- i'm not sure of the distance -- the taser doesn't always work, and you're trying to -- if we look at the video, the knife wascock co cockee ed back and it was --
3:07 am
appeared to be going forward. the officer withdrew his service weapon. nobody wants this 16-year-old girl dead. nobody wants that. but that is the job -- the officer took an oath. he's doing his job. and i'm sure he didn't want that to happen. in seconds -- look how fast this happens. he gets out and says, what's going on, what's going on, and that fast it rolls his way, and the next thing, he has to make a decision. and i've been trying to stress what officers go through when they're put in these situations. ooda, ooda. observe, decide, and act. this officer has to do all of this in split seconds.
3:08 am
it's a tragedy. it's not something where society should just say, oh, okay, she had a knife. i'm not saying that. i'm saying per training, the officer did his job, and we need to start looking at each incident as its own incident. >> i'm so glad you said that. i'm so glad you put it that way. we have to be able to say that, yes, things are a tragedy. something can be tragic and not necessarily call into question the entire way that an officer responded. and you say, look, we've got to look at each of these cases differently. before we go, anthony, your reaction to what lebron james said, his two-word post where he put a picture -- we're not going to put it up there -- and he said to the officer, you're next. >> you know, these situations are emotional. i know that lebron and many of
3:09 am
celebrities, politicians, just everyday citizens are tired. they're tired of it. and i understand. this is america. he has every right to speak his mind. the one thing i would just ask is that everyone take the time to see it for themselves and think of ooda. what would they do in that same situation. >> commissioner, thank you so much for being with us this morning. >> all right. thank you for having me. the white house is taking on climate change, releasing details of president biden's plan to address the climate crisis. he will commit to reducing greenhouse gases in the u.s. by as much as 52%. the president is set to host world leaders at a virtual climate study today which is earth day. jeremy, how did president biden
3:10 am
arrive at this figure? it's a big figure. >> reporter: it certainly is. since coming to the office, they have been coming into contact with business leaders and other activists to decide what this target that the u.s. needs to set would be, and now president biden will announce today that u.s. will aim to have u.s. emissions as compared to 2005 levels, which is the baseline, which is the year the u.s. had its highest carbon emissions ever. yesterday president biden decided on this target we're told in a meeting with officials. he will not outline a roadmap for how exactly the u.s. will get to this target by 2030, but senior officials on a call with us yesterday described multiple pathways to be able to achieve this target and they said the president's climate task force will go sector by sector over the coming weeks and months to identify more targets. president biden will not only
3:11 am
talk about the need do this but frame it as he so often does from an economic perspective, talking about millions of jobs that could be invested by a green economy, and with a particular emphasis, we should note, on blue collar workers, some who are concerned by the move away from fossil fuels. that curts away directly from some of the republican criticism president biden may face from this. some environmental activists will say president biden is not going far enough, but when you compare it to president obama, he set 26% to 28% by 2025. now this will be 50% to 52% by 2030. >> jeremy diamond, thank you for being with us. joining us to discuss, senior cnn climate correspondent bill weir. bill, i have to say, that's a huge cut in nine years.
3:12 am
50%. i think we're at 12% now. 12% in 2019. how do we get from 12% to 50% in nine years? how hard will it be? >> it will be the hardest thing we've ever done. it will be harder than world war ii, harder than the space race. it's taking an industrial revolution-sized economy and retrofitting it faster than you can blink, really. there's about 2% of the cars on the road right now are electric. there's so much room for growth there. but that's not even the most carbon-intensive activity. we've got to find a way to make steel and fly planes that don't emit the planet-cooking pollution that we're also addicted to. so it is a massive undertaking. as you say, the lockdown from your perspective, the united states led the world in reductions, which is only about 13%, the world total less than
3:13 am
7% in the year of the covid lockdowns, and that's dramatic. that's not the way everybody wants to do this. we're telling everybody to park their cars and leash them there. you have to wind these things down. you know in a democracy things take time, even when it comes to buying electric mail trucks or making military bases more energy efficient. they take time. invariably when you run into partisan politics, these things get watered down. just a perspective, a quarter of all of humanity's planet-cooking, heat-tracking pollution has happened since 2008. it's going in the wrong direction. we need to put on the brakes that you're highlighting domestic challenges. we're all one world here. so president biden has to convince the rest of the world.
3:14 am
how does he do that? >> big question there. china added more new coal capacity in 2020 than the rest of the world decommissioned. they're promising that they will hit peak emissions at 2030 just as joe biden says we're going to have ours in the united states, cut it by more than 50%. china said we're still going to be roaring until the end of this decade and then we'll sort of try to transition our way through innovation, by sucking that car bon out of the sky with technology that honestly doesn't exist at scale yet. but these again -- we live in the golden age of climate promises. we went from denial for so long and then almost a day of mourning concerning the complete lack of action and now convincing the other reasonably skeptical countries that we're in this for the long haul. >> bill, thank you for rising and shining with us so early
3:15 am
today. we appreciate it. >> any time. florida governor ron desantis is getting sued for the, quote, anti-riot law he just signed into law. what the opponents say this bill is really about. plus nevada's secretary of state now debunking claims of voter fraud by republicans. hear how. and is it possible to governor earn a gridlocked hyperpartisan society? that problem next on "new day." i brought in ensure max protein, with thirty grams of protein. those who tried me felt more energy in just two weeks! ( sighs wearily ) here, i'll take that! ( excited yell ) woo-hoo! ensure max protein. with thirty grams of protein, one-gram of sugar, and nutrients to support immune health! ( abbot sonic )

3:20 am
of how we make a democracy like ours work. >> that was president obama last night discussing how to overcome the deep divides in american society today, so let's talk a little more about this with cnn political analyst john avlon. look, i don't mean to be a pes mist here, but it seems like no one is interested in finding common ground. they're not even interested in talking about it or talking to each other. how is this not an intractable problem? >> look. i think the vast majority of the american people are interested in finding common ground. it's just the vast majority of folks in congress aren't. you hear president obama giving a civics lesson there. it's a fact of history. we're based on compromise. that's what it is. it's so screwed up right now, it compels congress to do the opposite. that said, you have to find common ground. all the dynamics force folks to
3:21 am
the extremes. disinformation does it, hyperpartisan media does it. so if you really give a damn about the country, you find a way to do it. >> it sounds so easy when you put it that way, john avlon. let's talk about where there is a little -- not a little -- a lot. congresswoman ilhan omar is talking about her frustration with police and nothing getting done here. >> i'm tired of people talking about the filibuster. i'm tired of people talking about the narrow margins in the senate. it's time for people to go beyond the press releases, to go beyond the press conferences, and to actually do the right thing in moving our country toward progress. >> so there is actually a compromised bill being worked on between democrats and republicans, but when you listen to them, it's clear they want to
3:22 am
bypass. they're frustrated with the filibuster and president biden like ilhan omar is. >> it's reaching out and winning people over through purr situation, and that's what the extremes don't particularly like do, it's my way or the highway. that's the way democracy does work. you don't get everything you want. if you want to reform the filibuster, it's clear in the mid-'70s that goes off the rails. you can fix it, but simply saying i'm tired of it and we want to bypass all of these issues, it doesn't work that way. >> i don't want to diminish this. we haven't heard a lot in the last 24 hours, which as you know is a good sign in washington. >> exactly. stop talking. >> they're actually working on it. let's see if they come out with a compromise. and, john, also, thank goodness there's outer spachls at least
3:23 am
everyone can agree on the moon. as far as running nasa, he wants to keep the goals president trump put in place, getting to the moon by 2024, which is pretty soon. the shared goals of space, should we all go to mars together? >> yes. yes, we should. you know what's not partisan? space. remember, it was announced by kennedy, pursued by nixon. this should transcend partisanship. when bill nelson said we should stick to that timetable. he's not saying i endorse president trump's goals. he's endorsing america's goals. >> it's cool. >> we'll always have the moons overmihami. >> strong reference there.
3:24 am
>> nevada put out a statement overnight about the voting issues there. let's look at what she said. she said, quote, while the nevada republican party raises policy concerns about the integrity of voting, these concerns do not amount to evidentiary support that the 2020 election was plagued by widespread voter fraud. it's striking that people still need to be saying this stuff in mid-april after everything we've seen and everything we know. >> we do. there's a cancer in the country based on a denialism about the election that goes to the heart of our democracy. unfortunately, especially republican election officials need to stand up. they need to deal with this problem. we need to deal with this problem. keep doubling down on the facts. >> send them ultimately to space. >> ultimately to space. >> i am can't think about anything else but breakfast
3:25 am
since you brought it up. >> i know. i'm sorry about that. her statement was basically this is b.s., but she was polite about it. >> we like that. governor ron desantis is being sued about the bill he just signed into law. what does the mayor think? and we'll ask him about the report that nikki haley was looking at being the potential running mate in 2024.

3:29 am
so you can finally talk about them with your friends. get ready for watchathon week, free starting april 27th. download the xfinity stream app to get ready to watch. orlando civil rights attorney has filed a federal lawsuit challenging the florida new law. governor ron desantis signed the
3:30 am
law on monday. it denies bail to any individual arrested for such offenses until their first court appearance. it prohibits damaging or defacing property deemed historic including confederate monuments and allows prosecutors and local officials to appeal police budget cuts. joining us now miami mayor francis suarez. your colleague says someone may be arrested for participated in protests where violence happens to occur. what's your opinion of the law? >> my opinion of the law is i'm not sure why it's necessary. we had obviously civil disturbances last year and there wasn't any sort of major rioting. we had one night out of two weeks of protesting where we had 50 arrests.
3:31 am
we were able to do it with the laws we had. we had defacing only monuments, but we were able to capture those people andry rest them for damage of property under the current laws we have. so we were able to manage those protest, which were, by the way, extremely peaceful. they were done in the public's view, done in the streets. we allowed protesters to go out and express themselves. we set precise rules. were there people that crossed the line? absolutely. and when they did, we arrested them and we brought them to jus justice. so the question is what is the need for any sort of enhanced set of rules when the rules we had worked perfectly fine and, frankly, there wasn't any real rioting in any other city in florida. so i don't understand why we have to change the laws on the books that we have and we ute
3:32 am
effectively. >> to be clear, you don't understand why it's necessary. you disagree with florida's governor ron desantis on this. >> to be clear, yeah, number one, there wasn't any rioting in the city and certainly not in the state of florida. number two, any kind of disturbance or any kind of breaking of the law, we were able to handle within the current set of laws that we had. so i don't understand what is the need to change the laws on the books. there wasn't any need, for example, for the national guard. they never came to any of our cities. >> let me ask you. governor desantis says it was necessary to battle what he calls the tactics of the radical left. that's what he says. do you find that framing politically divisive? >> look. i mean were there people that came to our cities that were probably paid to protest or were paid to create havoc? i'm sure there were. but that's not the point. the point is that whether or not
3:33 am
they were there to create chaos or whether or not they were there to try to create division in our community, it didn't work, a, and, b, we were able to handle it with the laws we had. you know, to the extent that there was any sort of lawlessness in our city, frankly, it was that people got onto our expressways, and that's state jurisdiction. so i think the state could have done a better job of protecting our highways within the jurisdiction. that's something we prepared for and hopefully it will not happen again in the future with their collaboration. >> so mr. mayor, politico is reporting that you met with south carolina governor, u.n. ambassador nikki haley this weekend. did you meet with her? >> i did. >> multiple answer now. politico suggests the notion of being her running mate in 2024 hung over this meeting. sit fair to interpret that? >> look.
3:34 am
that's their interpretation. that's not anything we discussed. we focused on why the city of miami is thriving and doing well in comparison to other cities across the country. that's what we talked about. i called it tech talk. i've been doing sort of a podcast. she was a guest on our podcast. we had a very nice long-form intervurk and it was focused why cities like miami are working, why the formula of reducing taxes, increasing police budgets and having more officers and reducing crime in our city and focusing on our quality of life is a way forward for the cities in america. >> i've got to let you go, but would you be in favor of nikki haley candidacy for president? >> look. it's 2021. that's very far into the future. that's something i would love to discuss with her if that's something she would like to do in the future. >> francis suarez, thank you for
3:35 am
joining us. thanks for getting up. >> thank you. >> that sounds like it. >> he doesn't like what governor ron desantis did there. he was pretty blunt. and then with nikki haley, yeah, maybe. >> it's like swiping right, they had a date. we're not talking about getting married, you know, but one thing leads to another. >> thanks for making me understand it in cultural terms. peeling paint, unsanitary conditions, and inadequate training. what the fda is now saying about the plant that ruined millions of doses of johnson & johnson vaccine, plus should american vaccine makers release their patents? our next guest explains why poorer countries are experiencing vaccine partied. n. she's more of a groundbreaker.

3:40 am
but some poorer countries are far behind. the world health organization says of the 832 million vaccine doses available globally, 0.2% have gone to low income countries where one in 500 people are vaccinated and 82% of these vaccines have gone to upper and middle income countries where one in four people are vaccinated. let's talk more about this disparity with nick deerheaden who's director of global justice, a non-profit organization advocating for global vaccine equality. these differences are huge. you call this vaccine apartheid. how did this happen? ? >> it's really interesting. we saw this at the beginning of the pandemic. the world health organization created bodies to trite to deal with it and distribute vaccines around the world, but sadly rich countries bypassed those bodies, so they have very few vaccines
3:41 am
themselves, but rich countries have hoarded as many of the vaccines as they possibly can and meanwhile the corporations making these vaccines, the corporations that have made them are restricted supply by not sharing the technology with other companies, and that's just absolutely scandalous. we've calculated today some of these countries, three of the biggest vaccine producers in the world, have handed over $26 billion to shareholders last year. at the same time so many people in the world are suffering so badly with covid and can't get hold of any of these medicines. >> i want to talk about that, the intellectual funding of these properties that got funding. first, though, we're looking at a situation where it seems every country is for themselves. that's how it's behaving. this is a global society. is it hurting developed nations?
3:42 am
let's go at it that way. is it hurting developed nations like the u.s. if covid is running rampant throughout other parts of the world? >> it absolutely does. it's been said repeatedly we're all in this together, but we're not safe until everybody's same as long as this virus is running like wildfire around parts of the world, it's going to come back and come back in mutated form that may be far more resistant to the vaccines that we've got, so the very efficacy of our own vaccines is going to be affected by allowing this to run around in parts of the world. it will come back to bite us. just in terms of our own self-interest, we have a real interestin making sure the whole world is vaccinated as fast as possible. and i think in the u.s. president biden is beginning to see that, which is one of the reasons he's really weighing up this intellectual property issue. >> yes. and maybe that will be answers on that here in the not-too-distant future. nick, this is a huge problem. thanks for talking with us about
3:43 am
it. >> thank you. developing this morning a new fda report finds what, quite frankly, sounds like deplorable conditions in a baltimore manufacturing facility that mistakenly ruined millions and millions of johnson & johnson vaccine doses. we're talking peeling paint, questionable waste. vaccines there remain on hold until these quality issues are addressed. jacqueline, the fda report was just jaw-dropping. what else was in there? >> here's what stood out to me. the report identified procedures to prevent cross-contamination not being followed. the report also says there was inadequate quality control, lack of employee training, and as you mentioned, john, unsanitary building conditions, peeling
3:44 am
paint and residue on walls and uncleaned surfaces. they've put out a statement in response to this. they say, quote, it's committed to working with the fda and johnson & johnson to quickly revolve the issues identified. johnson & johnson also put out a statement. the company says, quote, jnl will exercise its oversight authority to ensure that all of fda's observations are addressed promptly and comprehensively. now, john, previously johnson & johnson had said it shows the is. working and it's important to note that no covid-19 vaccine manufactured at this plant has been distributed in the united states. >> jacqueline howard, thank you for that. i have to say it's gross. and then you have to remember it's being around a vaccine that millions of people are intending on getting. it really is of concern there. so remember this.

speech had little tears along the margins that he said that she thought were false. that's when she decided i might as well tear this up. it's funny. the president is standing in front of her basking in applause. meanwhile vice president mike pence is standing next to her pretending he can't see what she's doing. >> so there's no way that this was planned? this became an instant meme. this was something she just decided in the moment? i know a lot of folks might have a hard time believing that. >> i don't -- she told me she didn't decide finally do that until the last moment. she was steaming. in fact, it was the one time we saw donald trump really get under nancy pelosi's skin. she got under his skin all the time. that was the one time where she did not act in the kind of disciplined way, which is usually her manner. >> susan, what's getting a lot of coverage from your book is
3:51 am
how nancy pelosi talks about some of the most progressive members of the democratic caucus, the so-called squad, and her relationship with alexandria ocasio-cortez and others. how does she perceive this group, and how does she deal with them because i think that's even more interesting. >> the there's a phrase that politico once used that described nancy pelosi years ago. she's an iron fist in a gucci glove. that's one of the skills nancy pelosi has brought to being a legislator. she sees some of hergs in aoc. she was once a pretty disruptive young protester, she says, marching in the streets. now she is a legislator determined to get things done. i think she sees some of these younger progressives as not being realistic, as being naive how you actually get things done and the compromises you sometimes have to make to get

half a loaf in her view than getting no loaf at all. >> it sounds like that generational critique that many parents might make as well. i wonder what you think. let's just listen to it. this is how speaker pelosi reacted upon the news of derek chauvin being convicted of all three charges in the murder of george floyd. >> thank you, george floyd, for sacrificing your life for justice, for being there to call out to your mom. how heartbreaking was that, the call-out for your mom, i can't breathe. but because of you and because of thousands, millions of people around the world who came out for justice, your name will always be synonymous with justice. >> you know, i think she was trying to be complimentary, but it came out very insensitive, and she had to clean that up in a tweet, susan. >> she wanted to revise and
3:53 am
extend her remarks after that. the fact was that was a remarkably tone-deaf comment for her to make. the fact is nancy pelosi has never been particularly good at the talking out loud in politics, making a big speech, or being on sunday morning shows. we haven't seen anyone since sam rayburn and lbj who have been as good as the inside game of politics as a congressional leader as nancy pelosi has been. >> i only half jokingly say having covered half of the obamacare, pelosicare because she was instrumental in that. thanks for the great book. you, spill the tea, as the kids say. >> thank you, brianna. congratulations on your new gig. >> thank you. we'll see you again, susan. an officer fired for allegedly donating to kyle
