tv New Day Weekend With Christi Paul and Boris Sanchez CNN October 31, 2021 3:00am-4:00am PDT
i'm in for christi paul. happy halloween, boris. >> good morning amara. thanks for joining us. i'm boris sanchez. to wolf blitzer in rome for the g-20 summit. good morning to you, wolf. an eventful morning already for president biden and still plenty on the agenda. >> there certainly is. lots going on here in rome. they're all gearing up to head off to scotland as well. the president and the world leaders focussing in on climate change and supply chain disruptions on this, the final day of the g-20 summit here in beautiful rome. up first for the president today, a key meeting with turkey's president recep tayyip erdogan. we saw the two leaders arrive for their meeting during last hour. the relationship between the u.s. and turkey, both nato allies, has been rather tense over these past few years. turkey's purchase of a russian air defense system has contributed, certainly, to the tension, and just ahead of the meeting president biden said he
was looking forward to what he hoped would be a good conversation with the turkish leader. we'll find out fairly soon. later today president biden will lead a discussion on the supply chain issues affecting the united states and other world economies. they'll focus in on short-term efforts to try to relieve bottlenecks in the system and long-term solutions. as the summit wraps up, the president is actually scheduled to hold a formal news conference here in rome and he will face questions from reporters not just about the summit but the fate of his domestic agenda back in washington. climate change certainly dominates the agenda for president biden today. after the g-20 summit wraps up, he'll head to what's called the cop26 climate conference in scotland. he will be there tomorrow and tuesday. our chief white house correspondent kaitlan collins is here with cnn domestic editor nic robertson. what do you expect, kaitlan, based on the background briefings you've been getting, what do we anticipate today?
>> today has a big schedule, and it's wide ranging. this meeting with the turkish president, which i don't know if you could hear the president but he said they were planning on having a good conversation. there's a lot on the agenda for the president and turkish leaderer. leb ba be non, syria, and the dust up over whether they will get f-16s which turkey is trying to buy with the united states which conflicts with their recent purchase of a russian defense system and that is something that is going to be a big topic for the two of them as they are behind closed doors. we'll see what the read outlooks like from the white house and what they believe are the tangible achievements out of that. they're hoping to stabilize that relationship because it's a been a frosty one between the two sides. later this evening the president is going to have a meeting on the supply chain with world leaders which has been affecting almost every nation in the wake of these countries trying to recover from the coronavirus pandemic. and you see the president struggle with what to do at home on that and what is in his capacity to be able to do to fix
the supply chain which is not just a domestic issue in the u.s., but one that if you are going to fix a problem in the united states you have to fix it in so many other nations. that's going to be a focus in the short term what can they do to alleviate the shortages. we'll see what that looks like. the president himself is deciding what to do at home. recently he said he would consider deploying the national guard to help with the bottlenecks, the white house later said they were not actively pursuing that. we'll see if they make any tangible achievements on that front. >> you hear the words supply chain and say what does that mean? it means it's going to cost more for people to buy products they need. inflation is going to go up if you're not getting in all the supplies that you need especially for developing these products, huge problems with supplies for cars, for example. the prices are going to go up and this, in effect, becomes a tax on working class folks. >> it does. the united kingdom, for example,
the u.s. has its own issues, but the united kingdom, containers landing at the major port for distribution across the uk are actually not making it to the uk. they're being sent elsewhere because there isn't the infrastructure, there isn't the trucking capacity to move it around. so it not only affects what the projects are available to people, certain christmas presents, toys from china will be available, but it's a fate to the overall economy, and it does feed down and hurt the less well off families. the supply chain issue absolutely critical for all these leaders, and it's all interconnected. business now getting turned away from the uk is ending up for european partners. >> hovering over this supply chain issue is the covid pandemic, the covid-19 pandemic, which still continues and continues all over the world right now, and it's a big
subject here at the g-20 summit because there's a lot of people worried about what's happening in the developing nations, they're not getting the shots, the vaccinations, they really need. >> right. of course, this is the first time all of these world leaders have been together since 2019 because they have not had the g-20 summit in person because of covid-19 pandemic. all of these world leaders are coming to the stage with a new set of problems. we had issues that there were previously, but now dealing with coming out of a pandemic, dealing with vaccinations, dealing with a blow that it took and the toll it took on economics, their economies, so that is going to be a big one. vaccine sharing is a big part of that. a lot of these wealthier nations are on the hook for helping out the und developed nations to get vaccines and that's been a push by world leaders. what you've seen from the global leaders, yes, you can vaccinate all the people in your country and we understand why that is important and your number one priority, but if we don't get the entire world vaccinated this is still going to be a problem that we are dealing with on a
global scale. what is the solution to that and are wealthy nations doing enough to help developed nations get vaccines. >> if they don't vaccinate these people there will be more mutations that can spread from some of the developing countries to the developed countries, causing all sorts of problems in the developed countries, 60, 70% of the folks are fully vaccinated and some of these poorer nations, 2%, 3 hrs, 4% fully vaccinated and a puj problem at the g-20 summit as well. stand by. don't go too far away. kaitlan collins and nic robertson helping us. the president is urging world leaders to aggressively fight against climate change. michael man is director of earth system science center and author of the "the new climate war." joining us right now. we've already heard pessimistic xhensz from world leaders just ahead of the cop26 summit that's going to be opening up in
scotland. what lu be watching for, michael? how will you judge the success or failure of this hugely important climate summit? >> thanks, wolf. it's good to be with you. i'm actually somewhat optimistic. you know, what would success mean at cop26? flds it would mean a number of things. all of the major polluters exit to the sorts of reductions that we know we have to see if we're going to avert catastrophic warming of the planet. that's a roughly 50% reduction in carbon emissions within the next ten years. part of the some people are concerned at this point is that there is what we call an implementation gap, there's a gap between the words that politicians are using that world leaders are using, the commits they're making and the actual facts on the ground, whether they're doing anything to meet those commitments. here in the united states, for example, while the biden administration has committed to lowering carbon emissions by
that necessary 50% within the next ten years, we don't have legislation in congress that would codify that and there is the continued construction of gas and oil pipe lines which is insistent with stabilizing warming below catastrophic levels. secondly, we're going to need to see the major polluters of the world all not only commit to these, you know, reductions, but to actually demonstrate that they're taking steps to meet their obligations. secondly, we need assistance for the developing world. they need to be provided with the resources that are necessary for them to leapfrog past the fossil fuel stage. we can't afford india and other developing countries to make the same mistake we made or we will blow past those targets. >> what worries me, michael, is that the leaders of some of the worlds biggest polluters won't be in scotland. does that hurt the push to get
more concrete commitments? president xi of china, for example, is not attending. >> yeah. well, you know, there is still some friction between china and the united states and other countries on a number of issues, not necessarily climate change. there does seem to be an increasing alignment on climate change. china has, for example, committed to building no new coal-fired power plants abroad. there's been some movement. they're back at the negotiating table with the united states on climate, but i think there's friction on other issues and may have something to do with why they're not there. i'm more concerned actually of two other countries that aren't there, russia and saudi arabia, because russia and saudi arabia are petro states and see their main asset as being fossil fuels and they've fought tooth and nail over the last several years to prevent any international agreements to act on climate. i'm a little bit more concerned about those petro states, those
bad actors, so we need to make sure that we hold them accountable in these proceedings. >> as you mentioned, president biden wanted to come to this summit with an agreement on his economic and climate plan, an agreement passed by congress, that didn't happen. how does that impact his standing going in to the climate summit in scotland? >> yeah. so we're sort of in this in between stage where there's this framework that has been announced, an initial framework, that would include about $500 billion for climate, for clean emergency, for [ inaudible ] no -- for climate, clean energy, that's, you know, that's progress right there. but we need to make sure, again, that that gets codified in legislation. >> and we should find out fairly
soon if that, in fact, is going to happen. the white house is hoping that the house of representatives will vote on both of these legislative initiatives this coming week. thank you for joining us. appreciate it very much. we've got a lot more coming up from here at this historic g-20 summit in rome. want to send it back to boris and amera for the late breaking developments. >> a lot of big news, including on the january 6th commission. we're going to check in with you throughout the hour. we are learning new details about more than 700 pages of handwritten notes that former president trump wants to hide from the house select committee investigating the capitol insurrection. those files cover dates up to and including january 6th, and they include specifics about efforts to overturn trump's election loss. >> the u.s. house tells a federal court that former president has no legal right to protect those papers that hold
crucial information. cnn's kaitlan polance has more details. >> good morning, boris and am mara. until late friday night we did not know the records that existed from the trump white house about january 6th and now we do. the national archives revealed in a court filing after midnight on friday that there are many, many pages of files from the trump presidency about january 6th and those include things like visitors logs, call records, 30 pages of trump's daily schedule even handwritten notes about calls an plans from mark meadow, the chief of staff. in all, it's 700 pages that the national archives has about january 6th from the trump white house and donald trump is currently trying to keep those records private. he wants to keep them secret, and he especially wants to keep them from the house of representatives, which is investigating january 6th with a special committee.
the house committee is going to be looking for these documents and trump is going to be in court this week on thursday trying to get a court order to block the national archives from turning over these records to the house. now this is going to be a central part of the house investigation and what is being discussed this week, but also, we are learning new things about others that the house is trying to pursue, other questions they are trying to get answers to. we learned in a report from cnn's k file over the weekend that a lawyer that was working for trump outside of the white house named john eastman, he was advising about how the vice president mike pence would be able to overturn the popular vote of 2020 that would have led -- that did lead to donald trump's loss of the election, and he spoke to steve bannon four days before january 6th about what he wanted pence to do. >> are we to assume this is going to be a climactic battle that will take place about the very question the constitutionality of the
electoral count act of 1877? >> i think a lot of that depends on the courage and spine of the individuals involved. >> when you said the courage and spine, are you talking on the other side of the football? that would be a nice way to say a guy named vice president mike pence? >> yes. >> that is a more direct statement from eastman than what we had known before about what he wanted pence to do, and we also have learned in the past few days reporting from the "washington post" where e-mails, john eastman had sent to mike pence's lawyer saying that siege is because you and your boss did not do what was necessary to allow this to be aired in a public way so the american people can see for themselves what happened. that was sense from eastmanon january 6th, and he was trying to blame the capitol riot on mike pence, not blocking the electoral college certification and this is the sort of thing that house committee is going to
keep investigating. we know that they are interested in talking with eastman and that is likely to be something that is discussed much on capitol hill this week. back to you. >> wow. extraordinary stuff, kaitlan, thank you for that. since january 6th private militias have been in the headlines but what do you really know about them? this week, "this is life" uncovers how a constitutionally granted right has led to the modern militias of today. watch an all new "this is life" with lisa ling tonight at 10:00. up next this hour, election day in virginia two days away, so what issues will this closely watched governor's race really come down to? we'll take you live to the campaign trail next. and we continue to follow what is happening on the second and final day of the g-20 summit. there is a busy day ahead for president biden focusing on climate change and those global supply chain issues. our special live coverage will continue ahead.

. we are 20 minutes past the hour and now in the final stretch of the race for virginia's next governor, with a race essentially a tossup at this point, both candidates are making their final pitches to voters. >> on the campaign trail saturday, republican nominee glenn youngkin attempted to position himself as a unifier for all virginians. >> it is not democrats versus republicans anymore. this is not, this is not people standing around holding up certain political philosophies. this is virginians coming together and defining a new way forward for our commonwealth. >> let's go now to cnn national political reporter dan merry ka live in manassas, virginia, this morning. what is the latest, dan? >> reporter: yeah, good morning, guys. i mean this is a tight race coming down to it and you really
could see that yesterday as both candidates stumped and really ran around through vote rich areas across the commonwealth. the reason yesterday was so critical was, it was the last day of early voting, and it seems, based on numbers from the department of elections here in virginia, that they were successful. over 1.1 million people have cast ballots in this race before even election day happens on tuesday, and that tightness that you're talking about has really nationalized this race because it's one of the only races going on this year, it's nationalized this contest. for youngkin, there are questions about whether he can win areas like i'm in right now, suburban areas, and for mcauliffe, what has hung over his entire campaign has been the success or failure of the biden administration. voters seeing this as a possible referendum on democratic leadership in washington. that's why it's been so important and mcauliffe has been waiting for democrats in washington to passes the two spending bills that are currently being talked about in the house and the senate, and in
a somewhat cruels twist of irony we learned yesterday that those two bills would get a vote in the house on tuesday, election day here in virginia. that is not something that mcauliffe wanted. he wanted to close his campaign running on those two bills, and now obviously, because it's happening on election day, he won't be able to do that. my colleague asked mcauliffe about this. take a listen to the hint of irony he seems to feel in that vote happening on tuesday. >> it is what it is. i mean, people here in virginia want to hear about my education plan, job creation, what i do on health care. i don't get asked about it. i would like to see them do it as soon as possible because it is $7 billion of roads possible in virginia, but if they get it done by the time i'm inaugurated i'm happy. >> i talked to senator ken cain off camera who was disappointed with his colleagues and that is why this is hanging over this race. you will see youngkin in the
farthest west regions of virginia stumping there, mcauliffe here in manassas, an event near richmond and closes the day with a halloween parade in lease leesburg. >> thank you so much. here is managing editor of axios, margaret tolllive. good morning to you. this being a referendum on democratic leadership when it comes to mcauliffe's chances, how will the stalled agenda impact mcauliffe and his chances? >> yeah. good morning. he does have, you know, a day and half to make the case that they're on the cusp of doing this in congress, but it is true that for many democrats in leadership, there's been a real frustration with that element of the kind of standoff between the manchin wing and progressive wing, that the virginia race has been on the calendar forever, everybody knew what day it was, and pelosi and her team were, you know, really leaning into
the idea getting it passed earlier would have helped mcauliffe. but look, this is the moment that the democrats are at, and for mcauliffe, the challenge is two fold -- it's turning out african-american voters, and it's competing for the folks who haven't voted yet for white women voters in the suburbs and for independent voters and the challenge for mcauliffe is that youngkins has really been, the polls show, gaining in terms of momentum with that independent vote. you're going to see mcauliffe in leesburg in louden county, a crucial county for turnout in this race, it's like the third biggest county in virginia, and it's one of these truly swing counties that have been trending blue. the question is, can republicans get it back? public education is one of these issues separate from covid, separate from biden, separate from infrastructure, separate from the economy, public education is an issue that glenn
youngkin has really been able to take advantage of and the polling, again, shows with those independent voters, they are embracing his conversations around education. >> so is that what it's coming down to? i just want to come off of your comments about, you know, how he's gaining -- youngkin is gaining with the independent voters. we know that virginia has been viewed as a purple state for a long time, and it's become increasingly, blue, right, with biden who won the state by more than ten points in the last general election. talk to us about how youngkin turned this into a -- such a close race? >> education is one of these issues, and it's a sort of combination of events. we all know nationally watching this interest in school board races, something that's really energized republican voters, questions not just about masking policies in schools, but around curriculum, how race is taught, how race is talked about, and some of these culture war issues that are playing out among our
teenagers and among school administrators and, you know, for decades, basically democrats have been branded closer to public education and embrace of funding, teacher funding, all these issues. what we have seen in this race is that the research shows a real erosion in people's kind of affinity or alliance around the idea that democrat are who you would vote if you were centrally interested in promoting public education. there's been a pretty effective job by the youngkin campaign addressing these issues. a couple of bumbles by terry mcauliffe's campaign -- by terry mcauliffe himself i should say. the thing i heard from democratic strategists is just that there's kind of a softness around this idea of malaise because covid [ inaudible ] because the economy has had a hard time digging out, probably better obviously because of stimulus, but we're stuck still
in a pandemic now a year after the presidential election and that, you know, it's hard for polling to measure, but those issues around enthusiasm and around how the country is doing are really also important drivers. you have a combination. you have a good candidate on the republican side who is skilled and adeptly tried to balance distancing himself from trump so he doesn't turn off swing voters, and yet appealing to the trump base, trying to kind of have it both ways. he said he's campaigning for all virginians. he's campaigning for all republicans and republican leaning independents and trying to find out if that's enough this year. >> walking that tight rope and this election will have national implications and be seen as a test case, particularly for republicans. appreciate you joining us. margaret tolev. up next, the fda grants emergency use authorization on vaccines for kids. now the final decision is in the cdc's hands. we'll tell you how soon shots

some promising news to share with you this morning on the covid pandemic, as more americans get vaccinated. according to the cdc, nearly 58% of the united states' pop pulatn is now fully vaccinated and almost 18 million people have received a third dose or booster shot since mid-august since the fda issued emergency use authorization for kids 5 to 11. tuesday the cdc's vaccine advisors will meet to weigh in with their recommendations an means by wednesday, kids from 5 to 11 could begin getting their vaccines. let's discuss this and more with ep teamologist dr. abdul al
saeds the former health commissioner for the city of detroit. always great to see you and good morning. a new poll shows that about a third of parents said they would get their 5 to 11-year-old vaccinated as soon as a shot is authorized. but many are concerned -- looks like we have technical difficulties there. that's unfortunate. we'll try to get dr. saeds back as soon as we can. in the meantime we'll go to a quick break. when we come back from that break, fans call it the tomahawk chop. others call it racist. former president trump alongside former first lady melania join the crowd at last night's atlanta braves game in doing it. we'll look at the fallout next. el viento pega en mi cara. ♪ s si acelero no me paran el viento pega en mi cara ♪ ♪ ♪

halloween, we had gob blins in the system but we have dr. abdul el sayed to discuss all things covid, the former health commissioner for detroit. always great to have you. before we went off i was saying that a new poll shows that only about a third of parents would get their 5 to 11-year-old kids vaccinated right away. another third said that they would wait and see he what happens, and yet the last third said that they would never get their kids vaccinated. i'm wondering what you would tell parents specifically about their hesitation and why they should get their kids
vaccinated? >> i'll tell you this, i'm a father of a toddler and she turns 4 at the end of november. i wish she was turning 5 because that could mean she could be vaccinated against this disease that has hospitalized 38,000 children, 170 kids have died. we have this perception from early coverage that somehow this disease doesn't affect children. that's just not true. i don't want my kid to be one of them. as i think about all of these children now coming eligible for this vaccine, their parents who worry about them, this is the single best thing you could do to make sure that this worry is now behind you to protect your children, protect your family. i would be making the same decision. that's probably the best endorsement i could give. i would have my child vaccinated. >> doctor, i've seen a lot of misinformation throughout the pandemic on social media and more recently some parents have peddled nonsense about fertility issues that might be caused by the vaccine and future issues in
kids. have you seen any evidence to back up those concerns? >> there's absolutely zero evidence that this vaccine is associated with any fertility issues in adults or children. it's been a big issue with adults because a disproportionate number of people filling up the icus are pregnant women. we could prevent this if we got vaccinated. you're going to see misinformation and disinformation. unfortunately this is part of living in the 21st century with the likes of facebook and social media moving information around us. but the fracacts are this is sa and effective rg 91% effective, we know it's safe and the best way to know that your child is protect against this disease that has affected so many people. the good news, the fda has already approved it. we should be hearings from the cdc early in the week. 15 million doses waiting to go out starting on wednesday. again, if my kid was old enough, we would be the first in line. >> and doctor, obviously a lot
of kids trick or treating tonight, what advice would you give parents trying to keep their kids covid free? >> have a great time. it's nice to have halloween back and happens to be my birthday, but celebrate. stay outside. that's the most important thing. if you stay outside, we know that risks of transmission are extremely low. i hope that folks have a fantastic halloween. hopefully doesn't spook your internet like mine, but i hope folks enjoy it. >> dr. abdul el sayed we'll leave it there, thank you so much. >> thank you. and coming up, we'll take you back out live to rome as the g-20 begins to wrap up. a lot still ahead on the agenda for president biden. we'll check in with wolf blitzer and our team tracking all the latest developments. no mess. jujust the soothing vicks' vapor for the whole family. introducing new vicks vapostick.

the atlanta braves widened their lead in the world series against the houston astros now ahead 3-1. >> among the thousands taking in the game was former president trump. he's now drawing scrutiny this morning from some for taking part in the controversial tomahawk chop. he was one of many in the crowd to do it. it's been a chant and gesture used at braves' games for about three decades now, but it's been criticized by native american
advocacy groups as mocking native culture. they argue that chop and the team's name is racist, reducing native american history to caricature. others argue that the chant is actually a tribute and we should note that similar chants are performed by other sports teams like the florida state seminoles with support from some native groups. nevertheless, the former president, no stranger to this kind of controversy. this only the latest episode in a career that's been marked by culturally insensitive and often downright racist statements. >> in the meantime cnn's doni owe sullivan went to the ballpark ahead of the game and spoke to georgians about how they feel about the former president showing up. >> baseball fans showing up here at the world series in atlanta tonight having mixed feelings about the former president showing up to the game. have a listen. how do you think trump will be received here? >> i hate to say it.
