10:06 pm
groups have said they could take the capital within weeks and months. clearly, the concern for the united states, for the insecurity council and for aid groups like amnesty international, is that rather than any sort of peaceful transition that this will be an ongoing battle. and could last several months and could result in the loss of thousands of lives. and so that is the thing that people are concerned about at diplomatically from the sidelines. but this group, this and reller group, they're getting together sorting a common cause, even despite the differences, seeing that their intention is change in your area. all right, thank you very much, allan fisher with all the latest on what's been happening there in washington. meanwhile, ethiopia is military as calling on its former personnel to rejoin the army to fight the advance of to grind forces and their allies as we hearing about just there. in the past week, government is also called on civilians to register their weapons to prepare to fight the rebels. government is accused the to grinds of,

10:22 pm
domestic agenda in the us house of representatives could be delayed. after months of wrangling over their price tag, as was expected to rubber stamp a $1.00 trillion dollar, infrastructure bill that had already passed in the senate includes the biggest upgrade of america's roads, railways, bridges, and airports in a generation and lawmakers were meant to debate biden's $1.00 trillion dollars, social policy climate change bill as well. and as bill back better, which will expand the welfare safety net and overall climate and tax laws. the bill is expected to narrowly pass with a razor thin democrat majority in the house and senate. but there are ongoing divisions in the party over its cost. the investor service moody's estimates that both bills will add one and a half 1000000 jobs a year and grow the economy by nearly 3 trillion dollars over the next decade. so let's get warn us now from kimberly, how can she's following all these developers? and so house leaders had thought that they had the support of the democrats on
10:23 pm
these 2 key pieces of legislation. wed. where do we stand now? do they have the, the necessary votes? well tell you that, nancy pelosi, the house speaker who's in charge of calling votes is pretty adapted this and she only calls votes. she thinks she's going to win them. and the fact that this has been delayed tells us pretty much everything we need to know about where support lies. as you mentioned, there is a razor thin margin for democrats in terms of their majority. and so if you even have just a few people, uncertain that can spell doom for getting their legislation passed and that seems to be the issue here. what we know is there are at least 7 members of the president's own democratic party that have questions now about just how much this legislation will cost so much so that they are now asking the congressional budget office, or what's known as the c b o to score this legislation and that could take weeks
10:24 pm
and that is a real problem not only for this white house, but also for the democrats who have been trying to get support for this legislation . for some time. we already know republicans don't support it. the price tag was the issue for them, but for democrats most seem on board, but now we have some wavering. and so it is appearing less and less likely that we're going to see a vote on either pieces of these legislations with each passing hour. and again, we woke up this morning friday morning thinking this vote was imminent and it is no longer looking like that's the case. how damaging has always been full. the democrats. well, it's been very damaging and, and the person that's feeling it the most is the man in the oval office behind me president joe biden. what we're seeing is an increasingly difficult presidency, given the fact that americans voted for joe biden to come in and make things better
10:25 pm
. and the way that he believes he could do this is with the sweeping, domestic agenda. but the problem is, these are co equal branches of government. this president can propose the ideas, but congress has to make it law. and right now that has been very difficult in his poll numbers reflect that we've seen them falling steadily since august. the latest pulls saying 54 percent of americans disapprove of the job. the u. s. president is doing so. it's very damaging for the president. we've also seen evidence of that this week and some special elections. democrats not doing well in places where they expected to in states like virginia and new jersey where there was just a narrow victory there. and that's what i was doing potentially one year from now with congressional mid term elections. because again, democrats have a narrow majority right now in congress and they can't afford to lose any seats. if americans continue to be unhappy, if this legislation doesn't get passed into laws,
10:26 pm
the president hopes and radically changed things and improve the lives of ordinary americans. they could this could have long term impact for the not only the u. s. president, but also his democratic party. thank you very much. kimberly alcott from white house. in other developments, the former secretary of state colin powell has been remembered in a funeral service at washington's national cathedral. from you, as presidents and colleagues gathered to pay that tributes column pal died last month from complications of coven $19.00 at the age of $84.00. in a long career, he was also a national security advisor to ronald reagan and chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, george h. w. bush, the 1st black person to fill those senior roles. jerry, of mostly white people has started hearing evidence in the trial of 3 white men, accused of the murder of a black man in the us state of georgia. a mod aubrey was shot dead when he was joking after being chased by the group and pickup trucks nearly 2 years ago. the
