6:22 am
a trillion dollars so if you're sitting in ghana right now and those debts were forgiven they would have the ability to give $20.00 a month to the 16000000 kids who are in down or seconds we need to create some kind of international reserve what the i.m.f. call special drawing rights giving countries the right to draw down resources from the i.m.f. the pending on their contributions from the past pretty opiah that would mean if we get a trillion dollars in special drawing rights it would mean for $630000000.00 that would be a $45.00 bump or 45 percent bump for their health health care expenditures and then finally we need more 8 we need to scale up our thinking and our imagination and the numbers are a we think it's going to be at least half a trillion dollars in a $500000000000.00 in aid we think just $160000000.00 of that which by the way is less than the well to the 2 richest americans $160000000000.00 and they
6:23 am
could double the expenditures on health of the $85.00 poorest countries so it's doable if we have the political will and that's what we'll be looking for next week . now the news u.s. senator bernie sanders has ended his bed to be the democratic party's presidential nominee ever marked senators accept clears the way for former vice president joe biden to become the party's nominee sanders told his supporters the coronavirus pandemic was a factor in his decision. i know that there may be some in our movement who disagree with this decision who would like us the fight on for the last ballot tears at the democratic convention i understand your position but as i see the crisis gripping malaysian exacerbated by a president unwilling or unable to provide any calling of credible leadership and the work that needs to be done to protect people in this most desperate hour i cannot in good conscience continue about
6:24 am
a campaign they cannot win and which would interfere with the important work required of all of us in this difficult hour al-jazeera sound fresh as in washington he says bernie sanders decision is no surprise. he's really been politically dead man walking the same since super tuesday that was really when bernie sanders lost momentum you remember that joe biden didn't do well in the 1st 3 contests in the caucuses in the primaries but then he came back from the political dead in south carolina after that he immediately got the endorsement from people who to judge from the club are sure that was significant and important for him and he did very well on super tuesday it made things very very difficult for bernie sanders but when he talks about how he has moved the political debate in the united states there's no don't over the last 4 years he's done exactly that people are not talking about providing some sort of universal health care in the united
6:25 am
states they are talking about free state college for people in the united states he's taught they are talking about income equality because of the issues the bernie sanders has raised now bernie sanders did not give an endorsement to joe biden that's not surprising because you don't give away all your cards at the table he wants to make sure that a lot of the ideas a lot of the things that he's been talking about or form the platform of the democratic convention and also the democratic election platform as they move in to the presidential campaign. now i see corona virus spreads across the u.s. is a growing movement towards mail in voting ahead of november's presidential election but as john hendren reports not everyone supports the idea. after a chaotic and dangerous day at the polls in wisconsin there is a growing call for a virus proof november election since it will probably be moving to both find mail
6:26 am
she wants that provision in the next stimulus bill. this is the scene few want to see again wisconsin voters on tuesday gathering by the thousands to cast their ballots during a deadly global pandemic all belief by saying they let alone being out here about a man and being afraid to take on the fight. with only 5 of $180.00 milwaukee polling stations able to open many was cons and voters including a nurse just off for shift did not get to the front of the serpentina lines to cast their ballots at all. i must say yeah but i wish i had been absentee ballot as that but i didn't know it was going to be obvious yet now across the us many democrats are calling for standardized mail in balloting zone nothing like wisconsin's election which critics call irresponsible and undemocratic ever happens again mail ballots early balloting if in fact it turns out in places
6:27 am
around the country they decide you can't do in person voting this is something we should be planning for now so that if it's needed we're ready to go in november but the move has some high profile republican critics the president of the united states among them bill bell it's a very dangerous thing for this country because the cheaters trump who himself voted by mail in florida last month added on twitter it doesn't work out well for republicans. most americans want their government to require mail in ballot in the november 3rd presidential election with america. in much of the world confined to their homes a reuters ipsos poll released this week found 79 percent of democrats and 65 percent of republicans agree with the idea. with a republican controlled senate behind him the president might succeed in blocking an expansion of mail in voting that leaves the potential that if the coronavirus lingers or surges again in november the chaos of wisconsin. could play out across

'd chemical weapons don't you say it's intolerable for anyone to do this but the o.p.c. sublease says that the assad government did it will you not condemn the assam got such a government and why are you playing this lane game of not taking sides trying to be equal to both sides aren't you leaving one very important side out of this and
6:30 am
that's the syrian people who have been gassed and over the last 50 years by the assad regime have been executed and talked shit i think we are on the front lines with the syrian people we have been our humanitarian colleagues have been there throughout throughout this conflict trying to support the syrian people in their daily lives so why is the u.n. pulling its punches well the answer is russia syria's closest ally and that's why you're unlikely to see any accountability for the attacks in the syrup or the u.n. security council has tried to refer syria to be international criminal court of the past but russia a puppet of a member has used its feet oh james is al-jazeera at the united nations.
