7:03 am
moment, but let's get to alec baldwin's first on-camera comments since he accidentally shot and killed the cinematographer on the set of the movie "rust." abc's zohreen shah is in los angeles now with the latest. zohreen, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, gio. alec baldwin spoke to paparazzi in vermont and despite saying over and over again that he couldn't speak about the investigation, there was a lot he did speak about. for about four minutes he talked about firearms. he talked about halyna's family, and he talked about their friendship. >> she was my friend. she was my friend. the day i arrived in santa fe, i took her to dinner with joel the director. >> reporter: overnight, alec baldwin breaking his silence nine days after a live round from his gun accidentally killed cinematographer halyna hutchins on the set of "rust." speaking about their close friendship and her husband matthew. >> the guy is overwhelmed with grief. this is something -- there are
7:04 am
nothing like this, and so he is in shock. he has a 9-year-old son. we're in constant contact with him because we're very worried about his family and his kid. >> reporter: baldwin and his family trailed by paparazzi while in vermont, stopping to speak to them, saying he talks to police every day, but refused to comment on the investigation. >> i have been told multiple times, don't make any comments about the ongoing investigation, and i can't. i can't. i can't. >> reporter: at moments, his wife hilaria stepping in. >> you guys, you know what? no details. >> do me a favor. i'm going to answer a question. we were a very, very -- excuse me -- we were a very, very, you know, well-oiled crew, shooting a film together, and then this horrible event happened. >> reporter: well-oiled isn't how everyone described the set. sheriff officials telling abc news there were issues. >> there was complacency. that's obvious. i think there was some
7:05 am
disorganization, and some safety issues and protocols that weren't properly followed. >> reporter: speaking through a lawyer on friday, armorer hannah gutierrez reed saying in a statement, she has no idea where the live rounds came from. a search warrant stating she checked the blanks and ensured they were not live rounds. baldwin now saying he doubts production for "rust" will start up again and he's unsure if he would ever work on another film set involving the same kind of firearms. >> this is america. how many bullets have gone off on movie and tv sets? new measures have to take place. rubber guns, plastic guns. no real ones. that's not for me to decide. it's urgent that you understand i'm not an expert in this field. whatever other people decide is the best way to go in terms of protecting people's safety on film sets, i'm all in favor of it and i will cooperate with that in any way that i can. >> reporter: hilaria spoke to the "new york post" at length overnight and she said they came
7:06 am
to vermont because she fears that alec baldwin will develop ptsd and she's trying to limit that. now, as for halyna, her funeral is later today. stephanie? >> zohreen shah there for us, thank you for that update. joining us now is legal analyst areva martin. thank you so much for joining us. alec baldwin said several times -- >> good morning, stephanie. >> alec baldwin -- good morning. he said several times he can't comment on the investigation. if he elaborates any more can he get himself in legal trouble by speaking about the case? >> well, absolutely, stephanie. what we know about this case from the district attorney in that press conference that she held this week is everything is on the table. she wouldn't rule out that alec baldwin or anyone else on that set is immune from criminal prosecution. this is a criminal investigation that's taking place in new mexico. i think he's smart and his wife was smart to try to prevent him from continuing to speak with the paparazzi about any details related to halyna's death. >> and of course, it's still
7:07 am
early in the investigation and important to keep that in mind. now, alec baldwin is one of five producers on the movie. how would his role as a producer of the movie affect him legally? >> good question, stephanie. obviously as a producer, he may have some affirmative obligations as it relates to safety on that set. he wasn't just an actor as you point out. he was a producer and producers oftentimes based on their contractual obligations have an affirmative duty to ensure that safety protocols are followed and we know from the report -- there were many violations of the regulations as it relates to using firearms on a movie set. so lots of issues to explore with respect to baldwin himself shooting that gun and then his responsibilities as a producer. >> areva, if he were your client, what would you tell him about speaking publicly right now? >> yeah, it's very clear that this is very personal, very emotional for him. he said that halyna was his friend, and i understand his desire to let the world know how
7:08 am
grief stricken he is, but at this point the best thing that he can do is follow the instructions of, i'm sure lawyers that are talking to him which is to not make any comments because anything that he does say, even during an informal interview like the one we just saw, can be used against him if this matter does end up in some kind of criminal prosecution. so the best thing to do is to just stay quiet, you know, focus on trying to support the family that's going through such a horrific experience, but definitely not talk about the incident in any detail. >> good advice, and of course, something we'll continue to watch. thank you so much for your time. >> thanks, stephanie. >> whit? turning now to the latest on the pandemic. we are just days away from the final decisions needed to authorize the pfizer vaccine for kids 5 to 11 years old. a cdc advisory panel is meeting on tuesday, and if they vote yes, it will be up to the cdc director to sign off. this as cities across the country deal with battles over vaccine mandates, and janai norman joining us with more.
7:09 am
janai, good morning. >> reporter: whit, good morning to you. a big week for those vaccines for young kids, as well vaccinations in the city, mayor bill de blasio saying that the vaccination of workers is 91%. adding that 2,300 workers got the shot on saturday alone. but starting tomorrow, those who haven't gotten the shot won't be getting paid. this morning, officials bracing for a potential worker shortage as they race to vaccinate the largest city in the country. the nypd, fdny and other agencies falling short after a friday deadline to show proof of vaccination. over the weekend, thousands gtting a shot, but rates still not at 100%. already a number of fire companies closing saturday for a second day due to a lack of staffing and multiple sick calls. >> i have had members that have received the vaccination saying they're having flu-like symptoms and the department is allowing people to have a couple of days off after getting the vaccination. >> reporter: the fire department saying response times have not
7:10 am
been affected and that they suspect this has to do with workers opposing the mandate. the commissioner saying irresponsible, bogus sick leave by some of our members is creating a danger for new yorkers and fellow firefighters. this weekend, pfizer shipping 15 million doses of their vaccine for kids ages 5 to 11 following fda authorization. the cdc expected to give the vaccine the green light this week, making more than 28 million children eligible. preparations already under way across the country. in new york city, mobile vaccine units at halloween events aiming t reach kids and parents and in texas, one school district working with local health officials to prepare. >> the conversations now are around a drive-through scenario. >> reporter: not all parents are racing to sign their kids up for the vaccine. >> i'm not sure. i don't think i know enough about it. >> reporter: others like alyssa in illinois say they can't wait. >> i don't want a mom to ever go through what i went through. >> reporter: her 7-year-old daughter paige was asymptomatic. no one even knew she had covid
7:11 am
until she was diagnosed with multisystem inflammatory syndrome. paige's message, get vaccinated. >> because then you won't get covid and you won't get sick. >> reporter: and the cdc director is expected to sign off tuesday evening. so vaccinations for kids ages 5 to 11 could start as early as wednesday, and the agency is already sounding the alarm about low flu vaccination rates for young kids and pregnant women. so urging to get the flu shot also. gio? >> hey, janai. so many people are watching what happens this week. thank you so much for bringing us that story. we're going to turn to politics now. the president is in europe this morning where he just sat down for a one-on-one meeting with turkey's president erdogan, and has a busy day of high-stakes meetings ahead at the g20 summit. let's get right to chief white house correspondent cecilia vega. she is live in rome now with what to expect. cecilia, good morning. >> reporter: hey, gio, good morning to you. it's the president's final day
7:12 am
of meetings here in rome with these top world leaders and a big issue that they're going to be taking up today is the supply chain crisis that's hurting so many americans back home leading to all of these high prices and empty store shelves that we're seeing around the country. the president is talking with these leaders, trying to identify where these bottlenecks in that supply chain are. they're looking to see what these countries can do to really step up and relieve some of these bottlenecks. this is a big deal. overnight, the administration announced that they've reached a deal with the eu on steel and aluminum tariffs and that's important because the administration says that this is going to end up lowering the cost of so many goods and items that americans have had a hard time finding, and paying so much for, things like cars, washing machines, stoves, refrigerators, stuff that folks really have had a hard time finding in the last few months. climate change, we have been talking about that, that's a big item coming up today as well, and it's a big deal because without the dramatic action at the table today, we're looking at a one-way ticket to disaster. so really these talks are about
7:13 am
leading up to that big climate conference that starts tomorrow in glasgow. these g20 countries, guys, are responsible for four-fifths of the greenhouse gas emissions in the world, and all eyes right now are on the u.s. and china, the biggest polluters in the world, and it's notable that china, gio, is not here at this conference. a lot of leaders taking observations of that now. finally, i want to tell you late today, president biden will be holding a press conference, gio -- whit, excuse me, he hasn't been seen or held a press conference like this by himself in four months. a lot of questions coming his way today. >> absolutely, and so much at stake. cecilia vega for us, thank you. meanwhile, back here at home, to the tightening race for governor of virginia. polls suggesting a tossup between democrat terry mcauliffe and republican glenn youngkin. it's a major opportunity for republicans to build momentum ahead of next year's midterm elections. abc's kenneth moton is with us from arlington, virginia. kenneth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, whit. in this final fight for votes, we can tell you that the candidates in this virginia
7:14 am
governor's race, and surrogates have been busy ahead of tuesday's election day. democrat terry mcauliffe and republican glenn youngkin, crisscrossing the commonwealth in what we have seen as a potential bellwether for this nation. in fact, it's the most competitive major election since former president trump left off the. a surprisingly tight contest in blue virginia, a recent poll finding this to be a tossup. 49% of likely voters for mcauliffe, and 48% for youngkin. mcauliffe has had democratic heavy hitters for him, including president biden, former president obama and vice president kamala harris, but this weekend, mcauliffe working to energize black voters. he has had the most powerful black lawmaker in congress by hs side, south carolina congressman james clyburn, the man seen as the key figure in turning around biden's 2020 campaign. meanwhile, youngkin endorsed by key republicans including former president trump has been solo on his own bus tour focusing on
7:15 am
northern virginia, these d.c. suburbs, critical for the republican. the big issue appears to be education, and youngkin has seized on the anger from parents over mask mandates and the teaching of critical race theory. president biden won virginia by ten points in 2020. youngkin has been walking this fine line as he tries to shore up the trump base and sway moderate voters. whit? >> all right, kenneth, thanks. let's bring in our abc news deputy political director averi harper. good morning to you. it's always great to have you. we'll talk about the race in virginia in a moment, but as we noted earlier, president biden left washington for these major summits overseas without a concrete deal on his climate change and social spending package. negotiations are dragging out. what's the state of play on that right now? what impact is this having on public support for the president's agenda? >> right. so we are told that there could be a vote as early as tuesday on this, but we've seen democrats blow past those, you know, votes and delay those votes. so we'll see what happens, but i do think that all of the sausage
7:16 am
making process is starting to have an impact on how americans foresee the president's agenda. when you look at our new abc news/ipsos poll, what you see is the president's approval in a variety of areas are starting to dip including on infrastructure, and secondly, what you are starting to see is that there is a significant chunk of americans that are not convinced about the benefits of the spending bills, you know, according to this poll, 32% of respondents say they believe these bills would hurt people like them. only 25% say that it would help them, and 18% believe it would make no difference at all. >> and again, we'll see what happens. it's a busy week ahead on that front, but i do want to come back to the virginia governor's race, and it's neck and neck there, between mcauliffe and youngkin, election day on tuesday. this is getting so much national attention. why are both parties so invested in this one race? >> right.
7:17 am
well, it could really be an indicator of things to come in midterms and beyond. i think what it's reflective of is the deep partisan and political divisions within virginia, but also across the country as well, and what i'm particularly interested in seeing is how things shake out for the republican nominee, glenn youngkin. we've really seen him keep former president trump at an arm's length while also securing and maintaining the endorsement and the blessing of the former president, and that's because glenn youngkin knows that he cannot just rely on reliably red voters, trump supporters in order to win. he also needs independents and probably dissatisfied biden voters as well. >> many wondering what this could mean for the midterms coming up in 2022. thank you very much. we appreciate it. be sure to watch "this week" later on this morning. george stephanopoulos goes one-on-one with transportation secretary pete buttigieg on the latest negotiations over president biden's infrastructure agenda. plus, an exclusive with republican congressman and prominent trump critic adam
