tv   New Day with John Berman and Brianna Keilar  CNN  April 23, 2021 4:00am-5:00am PDT

4:00 am
everyone take a moment to say a prayer for terence clark and his family may he rest in peace. brad stephens, the celtics coach, talked about it last night after the game. >> i never met him. my son looks up to him. hard to talk about a basketball game with even the idea that's floating out there. >> our thoughts are certainly with his family. in dallas last night, anthony davis returning to the court since early february after missing 30 games. davis finishing with four points after playing limited minutes in the loss against the mavericks. lebron james out indefinitely after suffering a high ankle sprain last month. "new day" continues right now. hello i'm brianna keilar
4:01 am
alongside john berman on this "new day." decision day for the cdc. will johnson & johnson's coronavirus vaccine get the green light despite the concerns over blood clots. capitol police pushing back on thoughts that police were to avoid pro-trump protests. the insults directed at congresswoman liz cheney that left other women horrified. and a historic launch, launching four astronauts to the international space station what this means for the future of space travel. welcome to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. it is friday, april 23rd, and you are looking at video of the
4:02 am
spacex launch from the last hour. this is the crew 2 carrying two nasa astronauts as well as two international space flyers and for the first time they are working with a used rocket and capsule, docking with the international space station is expected to take place around this time tomorrow and we are expecting an update from nasa within the hour on the success of the mission and what is next. >> undeniably cool. just hours from now, the cdc advisers will meet to discuss the future of johnson & johnson's vaccine. they'll hear about any additional issues with blood clotting, including another suspected fatal case in oregon. six cases prompted the cdc and the fda to suspend the johnson & johnson vaccination. it's great to see you in person here, thanks for coming in. >> good to see you.
4:03 am
>> dr. anthony fauci addressed what he thinks will happen with johnson & johnson today based on what happened in europe. listen. >> they will allow it to be given because they feel that the risk of covid-19 far outweighs the very rare, rare occurrence of this serious adverse event. so they're letting the vaccine go out with a warning to people about what to look for, about what the risk is. i wouldn't be surprised, though -- again, i don't want to get ahead of their decision, that's up to them, but i wouldn't be surprised if they came out with something similar to that. >> doctor, what do you think about that? what do you think it is we're likely to see today? >> i agree with dr. fauci. i don't want to prejudge or say what they're going to do, but let's talk about what's being considered. is this reason to withdraw johnson & johnson from the market altogether? i don't think so. what we do know is that the
4:04 am
cases have been very rare. we also know that those cases predominantly occurred in women 18 to 48. it occurred anywhere from one week to two weeks after administration of the dose. those are the warnings that you would likely see. and what's most important is for providers to know what actually has been happening. because you do treat this occurrence differently than you would treat other blood clots. >> let's talk about pregnant women and the vaccine. i have a bunch of pregnant friends right now and this is a huge topic of conversation. should they take the vaccine? you hear doctors say yes, new england journal of medicine suggesting that pfizer and moderna, the vaccines do not appear to pose serious risk during pregnancy. but at the same time it's difficult for someone who is pregnant sometimes to introduce something that is new. so what do you say to them? >> i just had this conversation last night. i had a dear friend reach out to me by text whose daughter is pregnant and she said should my
4:05 am
daughter consider taking this vaccine? i told her, yes. that is the best informed decision we can make at this point. that's shared decision making between a pregnant woman and her physician because we know that coronavirus in pregnant women can be more severe, lead to preterm labor, lead to complications with pregnancy and even maternal death so the ability to protect pregnant women is something we want to do. >> the nba, it's interesting we learn a lot from looking at these different groups. >> we do. >> the nba study suggests that people who recover from covid but are still testing positive may not be contagious. >> you see this happen. you see people who are persistently positive but it's important to know that these people don't have active symptoms, they've completed the isolation period, they recovered, they're not having a fever but may test positive. what we know is that probably is due to viral shedding. you have nonreplicating virus in
4:06 am
a person's body but that person is not transmitting the virus. what's important about this study is it gives us real data that can continue to make informed decisions. >> after dropping and dropping and dropping after people got vaccinated. cases began rising about a month ago. if you look at the seven day average they just started to come back down again. if you look at michigan, they started to come down a fair amount. how excited can i get over this? it seems good they're dropping. >> it is good. let's take a deep breath and continue doing what we've done so far. walk hand in hand with the science and the data. we know when we do those public health measures that work, when we do the physical distancing, the masking, when we avoid the crowded, cramped indoor spaces and when we continue to vaccinate all americans, we will continue to see these numbers move in the right direction. but we cannot afford to let up. >> let's hope this time they get really far down, maybe under
4:07 am
10,000 cases a day, which i know dr. fauci wants to see. doctor, thanks for coming in. >> it is wonderful to see you in person. i feel you have shepherded me through the crisis. we have an update on a story we first brought you yesterday morning. u.s. capitol police are disputing a radio broadcast that instructed units to monitor for anti-trump agitators not pro-trump protesters. whi whitney, what have you learned? >> back and forth for me and meg my colleague yesterday trying to figure out what the deal is here. capital police telling us that a representative's account of this radio transmission, that's not how it happened. they say when you look at the words in the greater context, in the totality of what they knew that day, that it really showed, in fact, usdp was not only
4:08 am
looking for anti-trump protesters, here's the quote we got yesterday. the radio call has been misquoted and is lacking full and necessary context. officers were instructed to look out for potential counter demonstrators because locations with counter demonstrators could be where clashes between the two groups of demonstrators occur. and they go on to say in november and december of 2020, that happened. so they thought looking out for the clashes was the logical way to make sure everybody was safe because that's what they'd seen in the past. however, representative lofgren maintains this is indicative that they were inappropriately and without evidence looking for clashes with antitrump people and that was the wrong mindset to go into the day with. a lot of back and forth
4:09 am
yesterday but capitol hill police saying when you look at the totality of the situation, they were not only looking for anti-trump people. there was a look out for a pro-trump person they were concerned was carrying a weapon. : >> thanks for your reporting. this morning we're learning more of what went on behind closed doors when republicans unleashed on liz cheney. from a "the new york times" magazine article it says this, ralph norman of south carolina expressed disappointment in her vote but the other thing that bothers me, liz, he went on is your attitude. you have a defiant attitude. likening the situation to a football game, mike kelly of pennsylvania lamented, you look up into the stands and see your girlfriend on the opposite side, that's one hell of a tough thing to swallow. she's not your girlfriend, a
4:10 am
female colleague yelled out. cheney stood by her vote to impeach trump but when it came to a vote to remove her from leadership she easily won with two thirds majority. let's talk about with this with am amanda carpenter. this is -- amanda, when you listen to that in that article, the republican party overwhelmingly male as far as elected officials in congress, what do you think about these sexist comments? >> they're really gross, but what is infuriating is when you consider the context of this meeting. liz cheney was in an extremely dangerous position, before the rioters stormed the capitol donald trump stood there and said the liz cheney's of the world we need to get rid of her
4:11 am
37 she had a target on her back because the president spoke her by name and she objected to the president's role in that insurrection, she decided that he was going to impeach him. she was going to speak out, so she went in that room and her colleagues didn't have her back. they mocked her, called her a girlfriend. and what is so impressive, and i am so happy that this profile was written is she didn't flinch. she did not budge an inch. this shows me that liz cheney is an incredible political figure. she's not only a woman in the boys club of gop leadership but she's one that can take on trump and win. we had a lot of people who wanted to take on trump but they decide it's too hard, throw up their hands, they resign, and she said, no. i'm going to stand my ground and be here standing here longer than you. >> i have to say, the way they
4:12 am
chose to go after her, though, the reference to seeing a girlfriend in the stands, the reference that robert keeps on referring to in his article about her attitude, it felt to me about this criticism you hear in society, they need to smile more. it felt like that to me amanda. >> yeah. this is her just not falling in line and waving the red flag. it's the tribal partisan politics where we back our team no matter what. why we're in such a terrible place. and there's a feeling, you hear it expressed by people like josh hawley, for example who objected to the certification of biden's election, which was the kindle that sparked the insurrection, saying i don't have proof of voter fraud it's my job to reflect the will of my voters, even when they're wrong. no. leadership is standing and doing
4:13 am
what is right and recognizing the ties that do bind our democracy and should unite us. that is what leadership is. and that's the test that liz cheney in that meeting passed and flying colors. >> thanks for being with us this morning. great to have your perspective. >> thanks. a lot of people look at where we are in the country and say we are more divided than we have ever been. how can president biden navigate this gridlock and the lessons we can learn from america's longest war. are we seeing the launch of the post pandemic recovery when it comes to the economy? christine romans will be here with key signs of success coming up.

4:18 am
the aftghans more like us. lately our parties and politics have become so tribalized it's not so clear anymore we can do that. joining us is tom friedman, thanks for being with us. when i read that piece which is about afghanistan, when i read that line, i really just stepped back and went, oh my. oh my. it's an incredible comment on where we are if we are headed in that direction. >> first of all, thanks for having me. it's something i've been feeling for a long time because i really began my journalism career covering the civil war in lebanon and the wider middle east. and what i've seen over the last 40 years is that the middle east has followed me home. we have become sunis anxi yiets.
4:19 am
we call them republicans and democrats. i was listening to the show before i came on and you were talking about the capital insurrection, that was rule or die politics. that's not something we've had in this country before and it's something we want to stop. >> i want to draw a distinction because there's a difference between partisan and parties, and what you're talking about. this is a whole different level you see us at right now. >> secretary nichl is something you can't compromise. if i'm a shiite or sunni i have to stand with my tribe. i was born a couple miles from where george floyd was murdered. i'm from minneapolis. and i've seen this, you know, kind of tribalism now go all the way from beirut and the middle
4:20 am
east, back home to where i live and how we bring ourselves together as a country again, it is so important. one of my teachers likes to say, trust is the only legal performance enhancing drug. trust is the only legal performance enhancing drug. when there's trust in the room, you can dunk a basketball even if you're a short guy like me off a hard floor but if there's no trust it's like the desert, you can't jump a millimeter. >> one thing that used to bring us together was national tragedy or giant events. i'm not sure that's the case. look at the pandemic, almost from the minute it happened it wasn't the whole nation coming together to deal with it, it was people going to their sides to deal with it. same with the derek chauvin case you have people saying the jury was scared, that's why they came together. we can't even come together on
4:21 am
the obvious points. >> two things are happening, we're going through a gigantic social country, and it's happening at a time of social networks that have made it profitable and politically beneficial to disinform people and divide people. that's what tucker carlson is doing, these people, that's profitable. the fact we're talking about him brings more people to his show. we never had that combination together one of my favorite songs is by brandy carlyle called "eye". the main refrain is i wrapped your love around me like a chain but i never was afraid it would die. you can dance in a hurricane, but only if you're standing in the eye. we're in a hurricane, economic, technological, and social. the eye moves with the storm but it's a place people can feel
4:22 am
connected, protected, and respected, that has to be the building block back to a normal and stable america. >> i have to let you go, but in a word who fixes this? >> i think joe biden is off to a good start but he can't do it alone. he has to have republican partners. >> i appreciate you coming in, waking up for us this morning. big fan of your work. >> thanks so much. with all the attention on policing and police reform in the u.s. right now it's easy to forget the way the american police operate it's not the only way to do it. so we thought it would be a good reminder for our correspondents around the world to explain how policing is done where they are. >> i'm nick paton walsh in london, police do not have firearms as a standard issue, they call up support when they need it. the number of people killed every year by police firearms is exceptionally low. most years you can count it on
4:23 am
just one hand. in fact, between march 2019 and march 2020, police fired their weapons only five times. you heard that right, five times. and that contributes to a low instance of deaths across the united kingdom and england and whales only 26 people died from guns that year. >> i'm paula newton in canada where in one study the killings of civilians by police is three times more likely in the united states than canada. there could be many reasons for that, one is according to canadian statistics, only 3% of violent crimes involves a gun here, there are stricter gun control rules here, how it is stored and transported. here in canada as well studies show that police involvement, violent police interactions are more likely involving racialized and indigenous canadians than
4:24 am
whites. >> i'm in australia where police carry firearms and are trained to use them as a last resort. despite that australians are 14 times less likely to be shot by police officers than in the u.s. 82 australians were shot by police officers in the decade leading up to 2017, at least one police officer will stand trial for murder this year. a police constable zachary wolf, accused of shooting an unarmed teenager in 2019. he maintains his innocence. >> in the past hour, japan declared a coronavirus emergency rolling out new restrictions. what does this mean for the already delayed olympics? when you believe there was a time not long ago when republicans not only believed in climate change, they also thought it was a bad thing. a reality check next.

president biden used this earth day to commit the u.s. to cutting green house gas emissions in half by 2030.
4:29 am
prominent republicans blasted the move but it was not that long ago when they would have cheered him on. john avalon is here with our reality check. >> that's right. this earth day president biden convened a world climate summit to reduce the carbon emissions by 2030. this is a bfd as biden may say. even senator lindsey graham got into the mood by making a big announcement. >> i've come to conclude that climate change is real. >> of course, this conversion is the exception rather than the rule. but confirming the reality of climate crisis wasn't always a partisan issue. let's step back for a brief history of climate change awareness and denial. it was back in 1965 that president lyndon johnson received the first official warning that pollutants have altered carbon dioxide in the air.
4:30 am
ten years later, a dangerous green house effect of fossil fuels in a memo. and 1980, a likely rise in temperatures could have long-term globally catastrophic effects but the public posture was different. the oil industry decided to adopt an approach to climate change, quote, gout is our product, since it's the best for the general public. so the fossil fuel industry funded think tanks putting forward its own experts with alternate facts. before al gore wrote earth in the balance, republican president george h.w. bush strengthened the clean air act. he signed the u.n. framework convention on climate change declaring the united states plans to be the pre-eminent leader in protecting the global environment.
4:31 am
but increasingly conservatives were turning climate change into a front. with senators mocking the idea of global warming. john mccain was the last to support climate change. and by 2010 the tea party was dominated by lawmakers who took the industry back to no climate tax pledge as pro republicans found themselves facing challengers that were well funded. >> is no man made climate change. >> the climate is always changing. >> all of this with the global warming, it's a hoax. it's a money making industry. it's a hoax. >> the trump administration made this official policy withdrawing from the paris climate accords, rolling back regulations and placing skeptics in positions. and despite data we've seen a
4:32 am
growing partisan gap on whether combatting climate change should be funded. denialism is dangerous. we're safest and strongest when we confront reality and then harness the power of science to solve our common problems. and that's your reality check. >> john, thank you so much. it has been another dizzying week of headlines. historic news events that are shaping america from the tragic to the hopeful. president biden sets a goal in the climate crisis, a jury convicts derek chauvin of murdering george floyd after ten hours of deliberation. >> guilty, guilty. >> president biden calling it a step forward in society. his doj reveals an investigation into minneapolis police signaling heightened scrutiny for all departments across the

the withdrawal of some of its troops from the ukrainian border, the move could de-escalate tensions with the ukrainian government and the west. sam, this real? >> reporter: well, i think it's real john in that it may reduce the heightened tensions that were caused by what the russians are calling a military exercise on the borders with ukraine and inside the illegally occupied crimean peninsula and the black sea. there are about 100,000 russian troops in the area, this is eu
4:41 am
estimates of 40,000 extra troops on the ukraine border, a substantial number may be withdrawn by the russians by may 1st they say. but what's going to be interesting to the spies effectively intelligence organizations in the western world will be to see whether troops are left behind, particularly specialist units such as pair troopers inside the crimean peninsula and rocketers, people who fire surface to surface missiles, the specialists may be left behind but at this stage the official russian policy is that they are moving out after successful exercises and partly to avoid any kind of conflict or sense of conflict with an ongoing nato exercise, which includes operations in estonia, romania and bulgaria, areas of formerly
4:42 am
soviet influence. >> thanks for keeping us posted, sam. japan is declaring a state of emergency in several cities, including tokyo as a fourth wave of coronavirus hits the country. questions are growing about their government's insistence that the tokyo olympics delayed from last year move forward this summer. we're live in osaka, japan with more on this. selena? >> reporter: the reality here is that we are just three months away from the olympics and japan is struggling to contain this fourth wave of covid cases driven by these more contagious covid variants, you have the prime minister declaring a state of emergency, now this is not a hard lockdown, but it will require large commercial spaces like shopping malls as well as places that serve alcohol to shutdown. i'm here in osaka right now which is the epicenter of this current wave. the governor said its medical system is on the brink of
4:43 am
collapse. you have less than 1% of japan's population fully vaccinated. the majority of the health care workers here have not received a single dose of the vaccine. japan may be known as one of the most technologically advanced country but it struggled with the vaccine rollout. one of the reasons is the slow approval process for vaccines in japan. the country has only approved the pfizer vaccine and even that came late because japan requires additional domestic clinical trials of new vaccines. japan has one of the lowest rates of vaccine confidence in the world. this is driven by a series of vaccine scandals in the past 50 years. amid this, several experts told me they are worried that these tokyo olympic games could become a super spreader event. despite all of this, the prime minister, japanese government, at least to the external public they are projecting unwaivering
4:44 am
confidence the games are going ahead as planned in the face of mounting public opposition here in japan and skepticism. >> will they go ahead but should they go ahead? we'll track your reporting closely. signs of an economic comeback. a lot of signs now. christine romans here with the details. >> the green chutes this spring you're seeing them everywhere because of vaccinations and epic stimulus. great news that layoffs are slowing. historic government aid is flowing to weather the storm. there are 17.4 million people getting some sort of jobless check and stimulus checks hitting bank accounts for everyone else. the irs and treasury department sent out another 2 million checks this week. that's now 161 million payments worth more than $379 billion, that's money in american's pockets. the tsa screened more than

jen psaki wouldn't divulge specifics but wouldn't raise the taxes on anyone making less than $400,000 a year. >> wall street didn't like the last part there. >> that shouldn't be a surprise. stocks have been up so much the last year, it wasn't down 1, 1.5%. so that tax tantrum i think might be over. these are tough times for relations between police officers and their communities. trust is broken, the gulf is deep but some officers are going beyond the call of duty to build bridges, like one atlanta officer who lends a hand to the homeless on her beat. >> reporter: when she's not responding to 911 calls, 25-year-old atlanta police officer mali nalimb starts every day checks in on businesses. >> there have been times i walk into a robbery at these
4:47 am
locations before. >> reporter: it's the stop near the end of her day that brings a smile to her face. >> i really think so much of her. >> reporter: shortly before the pandemic, lin drove by doc on the side of the road. and noticed his sign. >> he wasn't begging for money, he was smiling, holding a sign, waving at everyone. i went to get my lunch and got two lunches today. >> 61-year-old doc who told us his drinking and drug addictions have cost him jobs in the past, remembers the first time she stopped to talk. he wondered if he had a warrant and thought she was going to take him to jail. >> i was afraid but she quickly eases the relationship. and basically says, what do you need? >> reporter: when george floyd was killed in minneapolis last year, their connection strengthened at a time when police and community relations were strained. >> he is problm, and i was able to get him a special shirt that
4:48 am
