tv   New Day Weekend With Christi Paul and Boris Sanchez  CNN  October 30, 2021 2:00am-3:00am PDT

2:00 am
♪ good morning, it is saturday, october 30th. welcome to your "new day." i'm bore is sanchez.
2:01 am
>> good morning, everyone, i'm amara walker in for christi paul. we have new details what happened when a pro-trump mob attacked the capitol on january 6th. and just how far the president's legal team went in the efforts to overturn his election loss. "the washington post" is now reporting that in the middle of the capitol invasion, agency rioters were overrunning the building and chanting "hang mike pence" one of former president trump's attorneys emailed a top aide for the then vice president, blaming pence for the violence, because he refused to block the election certification. >> and when that aide described the attack a siege in an email, trump attorney john eastman wrote back, quote, the siege is because you and your boss did not do what was necessary to allowed this to be aired in a public way, so the american people can see for themselves what happened. eastman essentially blaming pence for what happened on
2:02 am
january 6th. eastman has confirmed the emails, but he's denying that he was actually blaming pence for the violence. he tells the post that trump's team was right to, quote, exhaust every legal means to challenge the election results. once again, it's important to point out there has not been now nor any credible proof of widespread election fraud or irregularities. of course, we're going to continue to follow this story and bring you the latest throughout the morning. the other big story we're following today, president biden meeting with world leaders at the g20 summit in rome. >> that is happening now, cnn anchor wolf blitzer is in rome. he is joining us now live this morning. wolf, good morning to you, obviously, a busy day ahead for president biden. >> very busy day, a beautiful day, guys, in rome as well. the president takes to the world stage to address global economic and security issues. even as his domestic agenda
2:03 am
clearly hangs in the balance, back in washington. he was hoping to come here to rome with a deal in place to move his climate and social spending agenda forward. but democrats have yet to sign off on the framework of his proposal. the stakes are clearly enormous. the president himself has acknowledged that the credibility of the united states, and the future of his presidency are on the line. but the biden administration is also downplaying any impact on the president's ability to rally world leaders here at the g20. one senior administration official said, and i'm quoting now, these world leaders really are sophisticated. they understand there's a complicated process in any democracy to do anything as ambitious as we're pursuing in our domestic agenda. here at the summit, president biden and other world leaders will focus on the covid-19 pandemic. global supply chain problems, a global minimum tax rate, high energy prices and combatting the climate crisis, among other
2:04 am
major issues, kaitlan collins, our chief white house correspondent is with us here in rome watching this unfold. ind kaitlan, set the scene, what are we expecting to see from the president. >> today is the kickoff of the g20 summit. it's the first time they've met in person since 2019, obviously disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic and that is the pain topic sitting down today. the first session that president biden has with world leaders is focused on energy supply and the crisis happening there and the global minimum tax. that is something maybe really one of the concrete takeaways that the white house is talking about, wolf, when it comes to what they're seeing on the outcome of this summit. that is something that they want to prevent the race to the bottom with nations of the world. that is the measure that the president is taking and he's going to be tested from what he said a few months ago at the g7 summit.
2:05 am
he came with a presence that he is president now, america is back. meaning he's going to destroy the alliances and with his predecessor, it has changed that. and the question whether or not that is successful is a big one for the president today. >> and jim sciutto is here with us as well. jim, there's several notable absences from the g20 summit but the leaders of russia and china are staying home. >> yeah, they're phoning it on, the white house thinks it's an opportunity biden physically present might be able to cajole, push, negotiate with u.s. allies on the priorities including climate but also economic issues today. but on the flip side, of course, it's a missed opportunity because there had been hope leading up to g20, particularly for xi and biden to meet face-to-face. because the u.s. and china are in the midst of a genuinely deeply intense period right now.
2:06 am
particularly over taiwan. you saw this bubble up last week with the taiwanese president that the u.s. has forces on ground, a training role, but in taiwan. that's a deep issue for china and it shows the depth of u.s. concern about china's threat to taiwan. so, to miss an opportunity for xi and biden to speak, perhaps find a way forward on this is a loss. the white house trying to look at this as a positive, because biden has something of an advantage. >> i take it, kaitlan, president biden was pretty pleased with his 90-minute meeting with pope francis yesterday. it was a very emotional opportunity for the second catholic president of the united states to meet with the pontiff. and he was rather blunt in describing his meeting with president emmanuel macron of france, saying basically the u.s. screwed up in the leadup for the rift that developed? >> i think french officials were surprised by just how candid the president was during that session yesterday, especially in front of cameras while the press was still in the room and he was
2:07 am
asked if the relationship had been repaired and he acknowledged they had made missteps how that was communicated with that scuttle marine deal that the president said it was clumsy. that it could have been handled better and he genuinely knew that the french knew which raises questions why that communication was lost between the president's top aides and how that happened. and of course he also had that deeply symbolic meeting with pope francis yesterday, probably the most symbolic meeting he's going to have as officials described as a deeply personal one. the main one today is the one later on this evening with leaders of germany, united kingdom and france and the topic there is going to be iran. and what's interesting about that just how candid, the white house has been on what's on the table, with the choice of this meeting. saying it's not a preplanned meeting where they know their talking points and what they're going to say. they genuinely want to sit down and discuss how aggressively iran is moving ahead with its
2:08 am
nuclear program and what's that looking like. >> this is a big issue. >> and i haven't spoken to anybody on the u.s. side or european side who is positive about the progress of iran talks. they note that negotiators are signed by hard -- line, we have a particularly hardline, negotiators are opposed to the deal. those are quite a set of individuals to have across from the eu and the u.s., as they're discussing the iran deal. so, the u.s. position right now, they need to see some progress from iran if there's any hope of resurrecting this deal. in fact, and this will be subject of discussion today too, it's equally like, maybe even more likely that the u.s. is ramping up diagnosises discussi iran. as opposed to tamping them down. and just last week, the subject of iran's drone program. the progress possibly in the
2:09 am
nuclear program might be the more likely yutoutcome from thi. >> did the control, kaitlan, undermine the president's ability to deal on a sensitive issue with iran with allies? >> what's so interesting talks with leaders last night they didn't think afghanistan came up during that meeting which is fascinating to me because it has raised a lot of concerns between the european allies, especially they had no choice but to follow suit with the american withdrawal. they thought it happened quickly, of course, it was chaotic and deadly and nobody was happy with how that went down so it raises questions about other policies and american troops in other places what does that mean. i think it was notable in the language of the joint statement that came out with the president talking about supporting the european defense separate from nato, of course that is something of concern to them. it seemed to be concession to i
2:10 am
agree in light of that. >> it would be surprising if afghanistan doesn't come up here because the depth of upset among european allies how that withdrawal went was real. they felt they didn't have an opportunity to get their own people out so that would be remarkable if the g20 has moved on from events there a few weeks ago. >> yeah, it's true. we're going to be here. for the next several hours. the three of us. we're getting ready for photo opportunities he g20 summit. we're going to have live coverage here throughout the day here in rome as president biden meets with world leaders here in rome. democrats back in the united states are still working to reach a deal on the president's budget. for all of that, all of today's news, let's go back to boris and amara. guys, it's a big, big bedeal what's happening here in rome. then we're all off to scotland for the cop26 summit. >> and the white house looking
2:11 am
for progress from this trip with president biden. of course, as you noted we'll be checking in the next hours, wolf. thank you so much. here in the united states, the president has left behind major challenges for his own party. after they delayed voting on the bipartisan infrastructure bill. >> cnn congressional reporter daniella diaz is live from capitol hill. good morning to you, daniella, is democratic leadership any closer to reaching a deal with progressives? >> reporter: they are, amara, boris, good morning. and it's more likely, as long as this economic bill, this massive bill that will expand the social safety net, holding this all up, as long as that goes to the house floor at the same time as the bipartisan infrastructure bill which i should emphasize has already passed the senate. had bipartisan support, democrat and republican support and only needs to pass the house before it goes to president joe biden's desk. as long as both of these bills
2:12 am
go on the house floor, together, progressives will support it. that was a problem here this week. and that is why president joe biden visited the capitol thursday morning to try to get behind the bipartisan infrastructure bill to vote on it to capacity so he could take that to his trip to europe. he wants that win but unfortunately for democratic leaders that did not happen. they were pushing for it, but progressives held firm. they emphasized they want both of these bills voted in tandem on the house floor and they're willing to do that as soon as possible. nothing thing that progressives wants, the moderate senators, kyrsten sinema of arizona and joe manchin of west virginia, to endorse the white house framework that they came out thursday morning for the economic bill that expands the nation's social safety net. the $1.75 trillion bill. now, neither of them endorsed this legislation on thursday. however, sources are telling us it seems that kyrsten sinema is going to endorse this.
2:13 am
but the real question mark here is joe manchin. where does he stand on this. is he going to support this legislation. and progressives want his endorsement before she move forward on voting for this. the other thing is they bought themselves time to pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill, because thursday night, congress voted for a highway funding surface transportation funding that is included in this bipartisan bill. they extended from october 31st to december 3rd. now, remember that date, december 3rd. this is going to be the major date that we hear over and over again. that's when this funding ends. that is also when the government runs out of funding and that is also when the nation will hit its debt ceiling. so democratic leaders have a lot on their plate that they're trying to do these next couple of weeks in trying to do all of these things but, of course, emphasizing passing the economic bill and bipartisan infrastructure bill. amara, boris. >> daniella diaz, two deadlines
2:14 am
have come and gone. we'll see how they handle the third one on december 3rd. thank you so much. let's bring in natasha lindstaedt to dig in deeper on what's happening on the world stage. she's a professor of ethics. good morning. thank you for being with us. >> good morning. >> president biden dealing with a stalled agenda as we heard from daniella there. slumping progress at home. the president could use success certainly on the global stage. what does success look like for president biden, what are you watching for? >> well i'm just looking to see that he is able to establish, or just sort of reset his relationship with france. and come out of it with other leaders looking to the u.s. as the global leader again. in a country that the world can trust. i mean, i think that's been part of the problem. biden came in very strong saying
2:15 am
that diplomacy is back and that the u.s. is committed to multilateral action and cooperation then there's have been missteps. most notably, the chaotic departure from afghanistan and the rift with france recently. i think it's looking pretty good as the meeting that biden had in rome seemed to be going pretty good. and candor really helped that biden admits that the u.s. made a mistake. these are only words according to macron, and probably looking for more action, for support for france's military and counterterrorism support. tho but this is a first step with mending a relationship which, of course, i do think is very solid. >> natasha, let's play a sound bite between that meeting with president biden and french president emmanuel macron. >> i think what happened was, to
2:16 am
use an issue phrase -- i was under the impression, certainly, happened to have -- france -- >> audio a bit difficult to hear there, but president biden acknowledges as we said that the u.s. was clumsy in its handling of the submarine deal with australia. i'm curious how much you think the united states is going to have to lean on france and germany and the uk, when it comes to discussions over the jcpoa and the iran nuclear deal? what are you looking for in regard to that conversation? and how negotiations might go. >> well, these relationships with europe are absolutely vital, because the u.s. does not have a very good relationship with iran at all. it is absolutely rock bottom.
2:17 am
and particularly hardliners in charge of iran, this is going to make things much more difficult. and france has been able to have some sort of relationship with iran so they are key to me somehow trying to return to the deal but i would also agree with what has already been said. i think before we get to any cooperation, we're actually going to see more sanctions deployed. and that's because the hardliners in iran seem not open stall to having any kind of deal. so it may be that things get worse whether they get better. >> my colleague jim sciutto pointed out that there are two key figures that are quote/unquote phoning it in. not in rome and in person, china's xi jinping and vladimir putin of russia. they will be attending virtually. i'm wondering how you think that might impact the effectiveness of the summit. >> this is actually a really big problem, though it does give biden an opportunity to in-person make a big impact and
2:18 am
showcase that the u.s. is back and ready to support other countries in achieving some of these big goals they have. the biggest goal, of course, is fighting climate change. and some of the biggest polluters, of course, are the u.s. and china and russia. and without china and russia there, with some kind of commitment to fighting climate change. whatever they decide to do, seems to be not going -- it won't really be that effective, without the two biggest countries -- two of the biggest countries there. and so, it would be much better if they were able to -- able to attend in person, to tackle some of these challenges. now, what i think we're going to see are some really big statements on climate change. and the commit to fighting climate change. and reducing methane. but in terms of the big issue, which is reducing our reliance on coal, it's going to be problematic to not have xi and putin in rome, and then of course, to talk about this later at the cop26 in scotland.
2:19 am
>> and natasha, one final question, the global minimum tax is likely to come up. that's something you that pointed out president biden wants to champion. why is that such a key component of his time at the g20? >> well, it is important because some sort of global minimum tax is key to fighting inequality. and that's part of his big domestic agenda. and of course, that would transcend to an international agenda. and we know that 40% of profits go to these tax havens. and one way of fighting that is to have some sort of global minimum tax. of course, critics would charge that this isn't going far enough and there are going to be loopholes but i think this is part of bigger agenda for biden that coincides with his domestic agenda to try to reduce poverty, fight corporate greed and tackle these big problems on a global level. >> natasha lindstaedt, we have to leave the conversation there. we appreciate you getting up
2:20 am
bright and early with us. >> thanks for having me. >> of course, thank you. so former new york governor andrew cuomo is now named in a new criminal complaint about using him of sexual misconduct. we'll share the details of his legal battle ahead. also, tens of millions of children could soon be eligible to receive a major vaccine after a major decision by the fda. and we're standing by to see all of the world leaders together for that family photo at the g20 before they head into the working meetings. we're going to bring you all the live events as they unfold. because she wanted more relief. that's when she said yess to adding linzess. linzess is not a laxative. it helps you have more frequent and complete bowel movements. and is proven to help relieve overall abdominal symptoms-belly pain, discomfort, and bloating. do not give linzess to children less than six and it should not be given to children six to less than 18, it may harm them. do not take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual
2:21 am
or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe, stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach area pain, and swelling. could your story also be about ibs-c? talk to your doctor and say yess to linzess. pain hits fast. so get relief fast. only tylenol rapid release gels have laser drilled holes. they release medicine fast for fast pain relief. and now get relief without a pill with tylenol dissolve packs. relief without the water.

to support a strong immune system your body needs a routine. centrum helps your immune defenses every day, with vitamin c, d and zinc* season after season. ace your immune support with centrum. now with a new look! pfizer announced that they will begin immediately shipping out its covid vaccine for children ages 5 to 11. it comes as the company granted u.s. authorization for that age group which is a major step toward protecting one of the last unvaccinated populations in the country. the cdc vaccine advisers meet on tuesday. and if the cdc director green-lights the fda's recommendation, 28 million kids could start getting the shots as
2:25 am
early as wednesday. here to discuss is primary care physician and public health specialist have sagu mathew. >> let me get your thoughts on vaccinating school age children as young as 5 years old. does that mean that most parents move to vaccinate their kids 5 to 11 years old that we'll see less outbreaks in school, less quarantining? which as a parent, anytime my child has to quarantine, i'm just scrambling to find child care. >> good morning, amara. listen, this is exciting news for a lot of anxious parents waiting for the first covid vaccine in these age group 5 to 11. listen, since the beginning of the pandemic, millions of cases of covid have been diagnosed in this age group.
2:26 am
amara, 100,000 kids have died. i just tweeted showing young healthy kids, guess what, young healthy kids can also fall sick. unfortunately, they can face consequences like long covid. and remember protecting kids at the beginning of this pandemic, they were not going to school. now that schools have opened at the beginning of september, over 250,000 cases a week were diagnosed in children. so, yes, i hope that parents will take this seriously and realize that, yes, young kids even can get ill-effects from covid-19. >> but, you know, it looks like at least according to one poll, the kaiser family foundation poll, that most parents are going to be taking a wait and see approach. you can see the numbers there. so, you have 27% of parents who are saying that they will vaccinate their children in this age group right away. but 33%, saying they're going to
2:27 am
wait and see. 30% definitely they will not be doing that. what is your message to those -- the majority of parents who will not -- who are not planning to vaccinate their kids right away? >> you know, amara, i would reassure them. i don't think that it's unusual sore unexpected for parents of young kids to say, listen, i'm going to wait and see what happens. this actually happened also when the rollout began for adults. a lot of adults played that wait and see approach as well. i think what's going to happen is, as other families start vaccinating kids, more parents will become confident. and young kids also want to be role models, as they start spreading the news. listen, i got vaccinated. i'm fine. my parents wanted me to get the vaccine. i think other kids also will get vaccinated. and that number will begin to creep up. i'm actually optimistic about that. >> and i want to ask you about, you know, your outlook on just the pandemic in general, right.
2:28 am
because following the trends, i mean, covid deaths and hospitalizations and cases, yet in general, they have been trending down, but we're also hearing from the cdc director, look, we still have to remain vigilant. you know, and, of course, there are people you talk to who say, i'm so sick of having to wear a mask. i'm not only vaccinated but i've gotten my booster shot. when is it the time, is it ever the time, to start lifting mask mandates? >> i don't think it's time right now to lift mask mandates. i think as more and more people get vaccinated. we are going to get to a point where if you're around other people vaccinated even in close spaces, yes, there will be a time that you can take the masks off. i think the biggest mistake we make, amara, the moment we see bright light at the end of the tunnel, we're ready to pull masks off. this is the time to be even more
2:29 am
careful. holidays are around the corner, thanksgiving, halloween, christmas. a lot of kids will be hanging around a lot of elderly people. another reason why people should continue to get vaccinated. we need to continue to be vigilant. >> i so wish my daughter was 5 years old. she's not there yet, 3 1/2. dr. saju mathew, good to have you, thank you so much. >> thank you. we're still standing by to see president biden and other world leaders come together for that family photo at the g20, before they head into those workinwork working meetings. we're follow all the live pictures and we'll take you back to rome as soon as that happens. stay with us.

welcome back. i'm wolf blitzer here in rome along with jim sciutto and kaitlan collins. we're standing by for the official start of this g20 summit. at any moment now, president biden and other world leaders will gather for what's called the g20 family photo. let's set the scene, the italian prime minister mario draghi is going to receive the president. other world leaders have been receiving them. and then a photo opportunity. >> this is a start where you get the pictures there's the beast pulling one with president biden. >> when you say the beast, you better explain. >> the beast is the presidential moto motorcade, and the president brings his own car. we'll see president biden hop out momentarily. he will greet the italian prime minister hosting the summit, since g-19 person. we saw a little bit of it at the
2:34 am
g7, four or five months ago, the first meeting in person. president biden first appearance since taking the office, in the beast. >> there are few that are as armor as the u.s. president's limo limousine, and they fly it in. >> and mario draghi, the host of the g20 summit is greeting the president. that is happening as they speak right now. i don't know if we'll hear anything. a traditional minute that they stan stand and do a little photo. >> i think it's worth noting, wolf, the difference in rapport between this and the last in-person g20 meeting two years
2:35 am
ago when president trump was in office. there was genuine public tension between the u.s. and its allies. there's a different feel here for joe biden. seen as a more traditional american president, more respectful of alliances like nato and the eu and the g20. >> and that was certainly, kaitlan, underscored when we were all back in june, at the summit, at the g7 summit in the uk. and the putin/biden summit in geneva. there seemed to be a sense of relief that maybe the u.s. is moving in a new direction. >> yes. and now there's that question does that sense sort of still remain. so many things have happened from the exit from afghanistan, of course the deadly -- the diplomatic feud with france over the submarine deal. and often these moments where it's just a greetings among world leaders, the family photo that we'll see with the world leaders together. are often revealing. they were when trump was in
2:36 am
office. you saw when he pushed past -- >> bullied his way, elbowed his way to the front. >> they were always revealing in the moments like that, even though they're not very scripted. and these could be similar when president biden is at the g7. you saw the president was back slapping each other, arm with each other, and laughing. we saw that laughing on the sideline at the g20. we'll be waiting to see how it looks today. what is the reaction that president joe biden gets. obviously it's warmer than for trump. when it was trump, the world leaders had a sense of trepidation when he was coming. because he was often one of these that came to the summit and did not follow the script. that's a different, of course, tone and different expectation now that it's biden. >> he loves these kind of meeting, the president of the united states. spent 36 years in the u.s. senate. he was chairman of the foreign relations committee. and then vice president of the united states under president obama for eight years.
2:37 am
loved all of the international gatherings that he attended. >> you can see it in his demeanor, the smiles for mario draghi. deep rapport. the thing is it is more about tone as were. there were deep genuine differences between a president trump and european allies. there was discussion that had trump been ere-elected of u.s. pulling out of the nato. and genuine fear. and biden talking about deep appointment with withdrawal from afghanistan, relationship with france and the overarching question which is how long does america's word last on anything. whether it be a climate agreement, an iran nuclear deal. does it last through the next administration? right, that u.s. foreign policy is on somewhat of a partisan pendulum swing. and commitments do they last. >> did the failure to reach an
2:38 am
agreement on the infrastructure bill and the broader economic development bill, before he left, nancy pelosi, the speaker, she was saying this is going to undermine the president's credibility as he presidents into the support of the international gathering? >> yeah, the way she made the appeal to the democrats we want to send the president in a strong position when he goes here. of course, we know they did not openly come to an agreement. nothing has changed except the framework of the agreement. according to the standards that the democrats set, that is not the position he's entering this with. and the president himself when it came to the climate provision said the prestige of the united states is on the line. and he really wanted to get something done. and he did not get something done. since then, officials have downplayed what the meaning of that is going to be. of course, as you heard earlier, a senior official saying these world leaders are sophisticated. they understand domestic politics. and the statement made, democracy works that is something that he was trying to push and concerns with nations
2:39 am
about a backslide with democracy. seeiing the chaos at home, a dep dw division. >> it's remarkable how quickly the talking point changed from the white house. 48 hours ago, was he needed this deal before he comes. pelosi said don't embarrass the president. the president himself acknowledged this goes to his credibility and leadership about the. and can the american system solve problems. listen, these guys understand, politics is a messy business, it's going to be fine. to be fair, the framework of the deal does have according to progressives, it doesn't look like the largest investment in climate measures its history, right, assuming that comes through in the next couple of weeks he did make progress there. he didn't make it by when he wanted to make it by. >> they had a couple deadlines that they wanted to meet. those deadlines clearly were not
2:40 am
met. we're standing by momentarily, kaitlan, what's called the g20 family photo, all of the leaders will gather for that. if. >> yeah, one of the things coming out of the meet and greets, saying that putin and china are not here. how the u.s. will take advantage of that, one concrete that we know thing they're expecting to endorse the global minimum tax which officials describe as a way to prevent the race to the bottom among with corporations where maybe they do their business in the united states but they go and set up in other countries that have more favorable taxes. and the country that endorses 80% of the gdp formally coming outside of the g20 summit, signing off on that. but there are provisions interesting, wolf, one is part of this where not to say global minimum tax, but they want to tax companies that are doing business in certain nations even if they have no physical presence there. of course, that is something a lot of business leaders have pushed back on.
2:41 am
has raised concerns for them and how this actually gets implemented will be fascinating. >> and that's with the president's own plan at home, to have that a tax for u.s. corporations because many are in that category, right, they shift their profits overseas. >> the other big issue they're going to discuss, jim, is health. >> yeah. >> specifically, co-individuals. the pandemic that still rages around the world. and there's a sense among the leaders that there's one standard for the developed, the wealthy nations, and the poor nations are suffering. >> by the way, that was a message very close to pope francis' heart. we know that biden and pope francis did discuss that yesterday. the decision of the pope and developing nations are your vaccination rates are great. fantastic, help us now. there had been a goal by the end of this year to get vaccination rates up around 40%. they're not going to meet that goal. a big priority here is to see
2:42 am
they can make progress in terms of sharing the wealth as with vaccines. where they're nowhere near where you have the rates in u.s. and europe. >> biden administration has made what 1 billion doses of the vaccine available. >> yeah. >> to developing nations. >> and they often say, we've donated more than anyone else has. but still, people are calling on them to do more, and it's something that comes up in every single meeting that the president has with the world leaders. wolf, one thing we should note, you see them come together, you see the outgoing chancellor angela merkel there. >> and the fist bump. >> and prime minister modi, and you talk about what is it they're coming away with the world leaders. this is the first time that the world leaders have met since the pandemic. they scome into the room and somebody like merkel has been in
2:43 am
power for so long. still, a pandemic that none of these leaders were expecting it affected every single one of them and their nations with concerns not just vaccinations, but their economies and what that looks like going forward. so it would be fascinating to just about a fly on the wall and listen to the conversations because they have that similar issue. >> president xi of china has not left china since the start of this pandemic. they all wanted him to be here, they wanted putin to be here. he's not here either. >> notable absences putin and xi. those are notable absences because what you can do face-to-face, we all know is different than what you do remotely with meetings like this. the missed opportunity between biden and xi is one that is consequential given the depth of the conversations. and you see merkel there, of course, her last hoo-o-rah ther
2:44 am
>> and you see the white house has confirmed in recent days, of course, high tensions between those two, we'll see how that meeting goes what the readout of that is. >> president macron of france. they had a meeting yesterday. it was a rather blunt meeting, the french not very happy, jim, as our viewers remember, the submarine deal with australia. >> i spoke with french diplomats in the wake of that, and they were genuinely upset. to hear the public comments, the president copping to it, saying it was clumsy. and directing fire to his own staff saying i thought this had been handled. >> boris johnson ju son just ar. you can always tell he's there, he's a lively character. >> yes. and you can spot his hair as well. >> as i was suggesting. jim, it's choreographed this
2:45 am
photo where they each stand, right? >> it is, and a little distance. even the fist bump there, a casual moment, perhaps a hand shake, given, listen, we're still in a pandemic here. the first positive covid test of the g20 revealed this morning. that, a member of the media. >> looks like they're bringing in some doctors to try to, i guess, underscore the importance of dealing with these issues. these are symbolically important moments that they're bringing in, right, kaitlan? >> yeah, first responders potentially and medical officials who have been, you know, the back bone of the response to the pandemic. we are in rome, we are in italy, where they were incredibly hard hit by the pandemic. often people paid attention to see what was happening here to expect what was happening in their own nations and what they should be preparing for. so it is fascinating to look at
2:46 am
this group together in person for the first time since 2019 because of the pandemic. >> yep. >> and obviously, a lot of them have chosen to handle the pandemic differently than others. >> these health care professionals and these other first responders, jim, they are the heroes of what we've seen happening over the past year and a half, almost two years. >> they are. they saved lives. and they risk their own lives in doing so. they were on the front lines of this, even before vaccines, of course. and exposed to the sick. and many of them paid for it with their own health. so this san important acknowledgement of their service and their dedication throughout. >> and don't forget, after this wraps up, tomorrow, kaitlan, so many of these world leaders are heading to scotland for the climate summit, what's called the cop26 climate summit, they're going to spend a couple days there, as well, dealing with so many of them see as an existential threat to the globe. >> and what we're watching for when it comes to that summit,
2:47 am
really, what are the tangible outcomes, you hear from world leaders, especially in europe saying this is a crisis we have to face now. we don't have time to stall. several years to argue what is better to proceed. this is a question now. and who is actually doing that taking concrete steps to make changes by 2030, 2050, often years that you hear as a goal from these officials. so, i think that's one of the reasons the white house wanted to have a concrete step of those climate provisions from the president's plan, because they wanted him to be able to send it in and say here's what the united states is doing. you guys need to get in line and do something similar. >> and it's an open question here at the g20 whether they make a statement, economics to emissions reduction prior to the summit. that's the entire do they get there and how substantive it is the question. to your point, assuming the framework becomes a reality in the u.s., $550 billion which the
2:48 am
u.s. believes could cut emissions in half by 2030, that's a real commitment if you get that going. the question is account u.s. bring other g20 allies along. >> these leaders go behind closed doors for the next few hours. specifically, discussing covid, economic issues, a minimum tax for the world for all practical purposes. we're going to continue our special coverage from right here in rome. we'll take a quick break. we'll be right back. on and comes in original prescription strength. salonpas. it's good medicine.

new this morning, the albany county sheriff in new york is defending his decision to file a criminal complaint alleging sexual misconduct against former governor andrew cuomo. the comments come after a day of back and forth between a sheriff and a county district attorney who said the new filing caught him off guard. >> yeah, lawyers for cuomo have denied the allegation which stems from an incident at the governor's mansion last december. cnn national correspondent brynn gingras has more on this. >> reporter: amara and boris, the albany county sheriff greg apple said he has a solid case in that case filed against former governor andrew cuomo.
2:51 am
he said he's gone through a lot of evidence and hopes this case moves forward. remember, this was in a complaint that was filed on thursday, alleging the former governor of forceable touching in an incident that happened in the governor's mansion back in december of last year. and there was some confusion when this complaint was filed because it was done by the county sheriff's office. and we learned that the district attorney's office had no idea that it was coming. well, in a news conference on friday, the sheriff tried to clear up that confusion. >> our investigators have sifted through hundreds of documents, if not thousands, executed several search warrants. and interviewed numerous witnesses. including our victim. as a result of all of that information, a packet was sent down to albany city court for review. as a result of that review, a criminal summonsess was issued
2:52 am
will back up and talk about the review. that's standard in police work. drama the information off, they'll review it. if they're sending questions, they can call, normally takes a little bit of time. this was -- this came back at a relatively accelerated rate. kind of caught us by surprise as well. and needless to say, the document was then released to the media and posted online. so sometime with police work with investigations things don't go how you want them. you got to be ready to pivot. and that's exactly what we did. so criminal summons was issued. i would have liked to at that point had a deeper conversation with the district attorney. i would have liked to have reached out to miss glavine, cuomo's attorney and explain what was going on. needless to say, the document was signed, the document was leaked but again things don't work out as planned. >> cuomo's personal attorney
2:53 am
released a statement saying this, governor cuomo has never assaulted anyone and sheriff apple's motives are patently improper. the sheriff saying in that news conference this was not politically motivated. we know that former governor cuomo has to appear on that summons november 17th. amara and boris. >> thank you for that. for the first time since convicting derek chauvin members of the jury are speaking out. next, hear of their exclusive interview with cnn. ase closing] [gusts of wind] [ding] how did olay top expensive creams? like this with hydration that beats the $100 cream in every jar of regenerist retinol24 collagen peptide new vitamin c and the iconic red jar can't top this skin shop now at
