tv   New Day Weekend With Christi Paul and Boris Sanchez  CNN  November 14, 2021 3:00am-4:00am PST

3:00 am
to build a future of unlimited possibilities. good morning. welcome to your "new day." i'm in for christi paul. >> good morning, amarah. i'm boris sanchez. biden set to take a victory lap tomorrow, but can they push the rest of his agenda through. sidelined again, on the day she was supposed to resume her public duties, queen elizabeth forced to pull out of today's appearance. what we're hearing from the palace. we can't go too far out of our means to make ends meet.
3:01 am
you still have to eat and you still have to live. >> no doubt, you've felt some sticker shock lately. the cost of everything is going up. what you can expect to pay even more for heading into the holidays. i'm his dad and he's my son. i lost all sense of reality at that moment. i said they're not going to look for my son, i'll have to do it myself. >> why some families say they are forced to take matters into their own hands to find their missing loved ones. buenos diaz. sunday, november 14th, thank you so much for waking up with us. good morning, amarah, we match. look at us. >> i didn't realize that. >> totally unplanned. look at that. >> people won't believe that. i wasn't messaging you this
3:02 am
morning asking what you were wearing. looking good. >> great. all right, so after months of negotiations, debate and delays, president biden is getting ready to sign the bipartisan infrastructure bill into law tomorrow. >> the white house says the signing ceremony will include members of congress as well as governors and mayors from both parties. the president will highlight how the $1.2 trillion bill will benefit middle-class americans while repairing and improving the country's infrastructure. the other major piece of the biden agenda, the build back better plan, hinges on west virginia senator joe manchin. democrats are said to be back up on the hill tomorrow trying to come up with a version of the social spending and climate bill that manchin will actually support. >> cnn congressional reporter daniella diaz joining us from capitol hill. good morning, daniella. please update us on where things stand with the president's build back better plan.
3:03 am
>> reporter: now that congress has passed this bipartisan structure bill the house passed it last week and we know that president joe biden is planning to sign it tomorrow, all eyes now turn tot pressing issues that still need to go through congress for this administration, of course including this massive economic bill that is still up in the air with some moderate democrats. they have not been able to figure out how to get them to sign on to this, namely, of course, senator joe manchin of west virginia. he has not offered his assurances for his bill which is a major reason this bill has not had a vote in congress. he has raised kidnappers for this multitrillion dollar bill, including the price tag. he's unsure of what the price tag should be. he's also very concerned with inflation, and he has said that again and again, and he think he has research that proving this bill could add to the nation's inflation problems short term. he has also pushed back on
3:04 am
efforts to reduce methane emissions, has a huge climate provision, the largest price tag of this bill, about $500 billion. he's opposed to a medicare expansion. he has demanded tax provisions and -- he's opposed to tack provisions in the house version of this bill. meanwhile, another group of house moderate democrats have said they won't vote for this bill until there's a final cbo score, congressional budget office score, that will state how much this bill will cost. not only is that an issue, and they want to have a vote in the house next week, by the week of november 15th, they also have to address government funding and the debt ceiling, both which the deadline is for in early december. there are a lot of pressing issues that democratic leaders have to address, as well as just congress in general as they come back for session after this recess week tomorrow. boris and amarah. >> lot to get to in a short span of time. appreciate you breaking that for
3:05 am
us, quite complex, but you did a great job. passage of his infrastructure plan is a major win for president biden, but with inflation at a 30-year high and americans experiencing sticker shock at the pump and store, selling the plan may be a heavy lift. >> cnn's jasmine wright is live at the white house. let's head over there now. break down the white house's strategy when it comes to inflation for us. >> reporter: that's right, boris. look, tomorrow is president biden's big day. he will sign that first part of his two-pronged economic agenda, one of the biggest investments in public works this country has seen in a long time and he will have -- he has invited both democrats and republicans. we know he waited to sign the bill so lawmakers could come to the white house. as you said, the conversation is now dominated by inflation concerns, high gas prices, high everyday goods, the supply chain logjam and the president's strategy is really hoping that
3:06 am
signing this bill tomorrow in a big affair is going to show the country that the democrats can produce really a product for americans, and officials hope this bill really hope those economic problems. take a listen. >> the infrastructure plan will ease inflationary pressures. that's not all we're looking at. we're trying to help one of the fundamental causes here which is supply chain snarls. this is a multitear approach, near term, medium term and long term to fight against these price pressures. >> reporter: despite that approach we heard the official talking about, the fact of the matter is that the effects of this bill won't be felt quickly, as officials say these hire prices could go well into the next year if not the end of the year. now one thing that we haven't heard from the president yet, who he will name as structures are to really doll out the money in the large package. he has said it's the responsibility of both him and the cabinet administration on a
3:07 am
whole to make sure the money is spent responsibly. until -- and he says that an announcement on that will come next week. but also next week, after we see him sign that bill, we can expect him to kind of take his message on the road, selling what is in it. he will hit new hampshire and detroit and we can expect him to have that virtual summit with chinese president xi jinping. >> we'll see how he sells that package. thanks so much, jasmine wright. it will be a big day in d.c. tomorrow, and not just because of the biden agenda, but not far from the white house, steve bannon, a former top aide to president trump, is expected to turn himself in. former white house chief strategist is charged with contempt of congress for ignoring a subpoena to testify before the january 6th committee and refusing to turn over documents congress. the committee wants to know about bannon's role before and during the riot at the capitol.
3:08 am
the house panel has issued more than 40 subpoenas to aides and advisors to trump and committee leaders are hoping bannon's indictment will encourage some of those aides and advisors to cooperate with them. let's discuss everything with political analyst margaret tolllove, that joins us, the managing editor at ax axios. democrats targeting this week for biden's social spending bill. no final score yet from the congressional budget office, something that moderates said they needed. senator joe manchin and krysten sinema, neither still completely on board. if you're betting this week, does build back better get a vote before next week? >> well, i think it's tough just in the house in terms of final passage. i think there's no indications whatsoever that this could get worked out in the senate, and that's really where all of this
3:09 am
is going. if you're a house moderate you're looking at the results in virginia, last week or the week before, anyway, you're looking at the results in virginia, the close call in new jersey, and saying, if i'm going to supports this i need to make sure that i'm explaining to my constituents why. then you're looking at those inflation numbers and seeing that as an additional messaging challenge. even once that house vote happens, it doesn't give you any like bearing of what the senate version of that will bill look like. that's always been true. now there are these additional hurdles. >> margaret, i want to pivot to the january 6th committee. former white house communications director alyssa farrah, who has spoken with the committee, was describing to cnn last night exactly what they were looking for from her. i want you to listen to this sound bite. >> this is going to be a very comprehensive and deliberative process. they've already talked to over 150 witnesses. while i don't want to speak for the committee, what i found i
3:10 am
think they're looking for two main things. they want to put together the definitive narrative on the big lie, how people contributed to it, perpetuated it, who by the way knew it wasn't true, and then there's going to be the criminal justice side of things. was there wrong doing, tampering within the department of justice or state governments to push to overturn results. that's something they're all looking into. >> despite this bannon indictment, even if he's convicted, legal experts have said it's possible the committee never gets the evidence, the documents, that they are seeking, so how effective can they be? can they accomplish their goals without that kind of evidence or key testimony? >> you know, i think they can certainly put together a very definitive timeline of what happened, and i think the committee, both the republicans and the democrats on that committee, have made a decision they need to go forward with that and not be dissuaded by the question about whether they can
3:11 am
kind of compel the testimony they're looking for. what's interesting about her, is we've been talking about what implication is the indictment against bannon going to have on other witnesses who might be called? i think alyssa farrah is a good example of the category of people who may already be inclined to be cooperative when they're asked questions from this panel and those considerations, and why is that? i mean it's true that she was a spokesperson for the trump administration for the white house for trump, but it's also true that she was a spokesperson for mike pence. we've seen that the former vice president's aides and assistants and affiliates are much more open to cooperating and much more open to kind of calling out the lie, the notion that we know that joe biden won this election, not donald trump, that nothing was stolen from anybody. farrah also is different because she is, obviously, interested in being kind of part of
3:12 am
institutions, whether it's corporations or polite society, she's had this comeback tour where she's been writing an editorial or giving speeches with the former obama press official to talk about the need to heals the partisan divide. there are many inside trump world who the committee is interested and who are not in that camp and don't see that same interest in showing that they agree that congress has a right to have a committee and subpoena people and people should be responsive. there are really two different sorts of responses, farrah's response and openness to talking and cooperating and explaining this process is different than what we're seeing for steve bannon and what we've seen from mark meadows so far. >> one last pivot, president biden is set to meet virtually tomorrow with china's leader xi jinping. competition with china is a critical part of the biden agenda, not just in terms of human rights with the uyghurs but the future of taiwan and
3:13 am
whether the united states intervenes if china were to move in to that island. from your perspective, what does president biden have to do to make that meeting a success? >> i mean, the expectations for the summit, boris, are pretty low. it's virtual,s no the even in person. these leaders haven't met. they're really not on even footing. biden is under so much domestic pressure at home, being eroded by tensions by inflation. president xi just got empowered and extended by his party leadership in china, and so i think the expectations for the u.s. are pretty low here. they're obviously going to talk about things like china as well as things like climate change, but the expectations that biden's going to be able to move xi in any direction are very, very measured. the goal here is to reduce tensions and i think biden is going to have to balance the need to make the u.s. position clear, without ratcheting up
3:14 am
tensions. he's already struggled to do this on taiwan. biden has basically gotten in front of where the messaging was earlier, was what is the u.s. going to do if. he does not want to use this to provoke xi or ratchet up the tensions and yet needs to make clear the u.s. position is protective of taiwan. it's a difficult need toll thread. >> so many topics we hit. we appreciate you walking through all of us on that. >> thanks very much. this just in to cnn, buckingham palace says queen elizabeth will not be making a public appearance at the remembrance day service taking place at this hour after strange her back. the conv event was supposed to be the first times the monarch would be seen in public after doctors advised her to rest after spending a night in hospital last month. max foster is live in england. what else do we know?
3:15 am
how concerning is this? >> reporter: well, it is concerning to the extent that we were all looking forward to seeing her after this time out of the public eye and the amount of attention that she was due to appear. we were told in a statement from buckingham palace she would be unable to attend since straining her back. speaking to royal sources since then, they are telling us this is unrelatesed to the reason she was off work effectively in recent week. s disconnected from why she wasn't appearing in public previously. we weren't given a reason why she wasn't appearing in public previously. a certain level of concern there. but the queen according to the source is deeply disappointed to miss this engagement which she considers one of the most significant engagements of the year, amarah, and i think that's worth pointing out. the queen has only ever missed this occasion six times in the past and that was either because she was traveling or pregnant.
3:16 am
this is a big thing for her not to appear at this event. one of those events she always appears at in her diary. we're not being led to believe that there is anything to be particularly concerned about, particularly as there's two different issues here in terms of her public appearances. >> yeah. we know how personal and important this event is to her as someone who served in world war ii and we'll talk more about that with our royal historian and commentator in the next hour. max foster, great to see you. thanks so much. five bucks, five bucks for a gallon of gas? it's happening in parts of the country. where we are seeing record gas prices and how much more we're all paying for everything heading into the holidays. plus, after extending the cop26 climate summit, countries are finally able to hammer out an agreement to tackle the climate crisis. what's in it and why some are

nearly 200 nations have finally reached a cop26 climate agreement in glasgow, scotland. it comes after marathon talks amid tension negotiations after the summit ended. >> so intense that talks went into overtime as deep divisions remained on key issues like unprecedented language on fossil fuels and how much money developed countries should contribute to adapt to the climate crisis. cnn's phil black with more. >> reporter: adopt the decision entitled climate glasgow pact, it is so decided. >> reporter: they got there in
3:31 am
the end. applause, but no real joy. the end result, an intensely negotiated agreement that, at best, achieves incremental progress, and ultimately falls short for everyone. at a climate conference, that counts as a win. the final draft inspired passionate support from some world countries. >> this is good. this is a powerful statement. >> i please implore you, please, embrace this text so that we can bring hope to the hearts of our children and grandchildren. >> reporter: vulnerable small island nations were more, but they backed it because it clearly describes the importance of keeping average warming to 1.5 degrees celsius and recognizes the critical need to cut emissions dramatically this decade. >> i would like to remind us all that we have 98 months to halve
3:32 am
global emissions. the difference between 1.5 and 2 degrees is a death sentence for us. >> reporter: this cop made history. for the first time including textes that calls for countries to move on from coal, but there was a dramatic, last-moment twist. india and others teamed up to insist on weakening that section by changing one key word. "phase out" became -- >> escalating effort to phase down coal power. >> reporter: it caused deep disappointment. >> this commitment on coal had been a bright spot in this package. it was one of the things we were hoping to carry out of here and back home with pride. it hurts deeply to see that bright spot dim. >> reporter: the conference president couldn't hide his emissions. >> i apologize for the way this process has unfolded, and i am
3:33 am
deeply sorry. i also understand the deep disappointment. but i think as you have noted, it's also vital that we protect this package. >> reporter: outside the room, activists and experts predicted real change is coming after glasgow. >> phasing down versus phasing out. what does that mean in practice? >> well, i actually don't think that the change of that word changed the signal, changes that signal. the signal is that coal is on its way out. >> the big change here was people finally got the scale of the challenge and the urgency and we finally got a plan that meets that. but it's now roll up the sleeves time. >> reporter: scientists say the world needs transformational change. this conference just succeeded in keeping the process alive.
3:34 am
that's not enough to ensure hope survives too. >> reporter: extraordinary to think that never before, after almost 30 years of these conferences, have they ended with specific formal language talking about the need to move on from coal. the positive take is that this agreement reflects the urgency of the recent scientific advance and what's at stake and, crucially, it provides a path forward, an opportunity for countries to come back next year with more ambition, particularly in the short term. it now falls to those countries to do what they have repeatedly failed to do, to step up quickly and start acting in line with that scientific advice before it's too late. boris? >> indoubtedly an achievement, but as you outlined, so much left to be done. phil black from glasgow, thank you so much. >> a lot of people seeing phil's

were filed. more than 480,000 were cleared. 40% of the missing are people of color. >> there are a lot of gabby pe titos and natalie holloways in the black and brown community. >> reporter: that's why former police officer derrick ka wilson co-founded black and missing inc and too often their cases go untold. eventually local stations did stories and citizens began helping search. >> did you know daniel? >> no. i just wanted to help. >> you're just helping out a stranger on a saturday. >> yeah. >> why? >> you know what, i can't imagine what that man is going through. >> reporter: as the search for daniel goes into its fifth month, another family is in the midst of a terrible mystery for a fifth year. the family of nicky and ariana fits. >> ariana is very energetic, very happy. >> reporter: 2-year-old ariana went missing under the most suspicious of standards in the
