7:02 pm
stern warning. the u.s. would get involved with militarily to defend taiwan if china tries to take it by force. >> are you willing to get involved militarily to defend taiwan if it comes to that >> yes, we agreed to one-china policy we we signed onto it and all the attendant agreements from there. but the idea that -- that it can be taken by force, just taken by force is just -- just not appropriate. it will dislocate the entire region, and be another action similar to what happened in -- in ukraine well, white house officials walked back those comments quite quickly. saying the united states' policy towards taiwan has not changed u.s. officials added that president biden is committed to providing taiwan with the military means to defend itself. cnbc senior white house correspondent kayla tausche now.
7:03 pm
how are taiwan and china respondling to all of this >> well, shep, taiwan welcomed what it called rock-sill soleisolid commitment beijing is hitting back saying it is strongly opposed to the position president biden outlined calling the comparison to ukraine absurd, urging the u.s. to abide by the one-china policy foreign ministry spokesperson saying china will take firm actions to safeguard its sovereignty and security interests. we mean what he with say under the one-china policy, the u.s. recognizes the chinese government, but only acknowledges and does not endorse its claim to taiwan. the policy dates back more than four decades when president carter restored relations with beijing, and ended formal ties to taipei. >> the united states recognizes the government of the people's republic of china as a sole legal government of china. within this context, the people
7:04 pm
of the united states will maintain cultural, commercial, and other unofficial relations with the people of taiwan. american lead rsz have since approached the situation with extra teemic am biguity. president biden has been towing that line. he pledged to xi jinping he would uphold the agreement two weeks later, he told a "cnn town hall" this. he said at that point that he would be defending -- he would be willing to defend taiwan militarily back then, too, that the u.s. had a commitment then but when he reiterated it today following china's flying 14 warplanes in tie within's air defense zone, that raised new questions about whether this era of am pig wety is officially over and overshadowed the rollout of a ek nom ilk framework with 12 economic countries to shift out of china.
7:05 pm
despite being the united states' eighth largest trading part never, taiwan was not part of that pact. intensive economic talks with taiwan take chase place in the weeks to come. shep. >> day la tausche, thank you president biden slamming vladimir putin during the trip to tokyo he made he said the russian leader needs to pay a heavy price for what he calls barbarism in ukraine. >> i believe a what putin is attempting to do is eliminate the identity of ukraine. he can't occupy but he can try to destroy its identity. he has to pay and russia has to pay a long-term price in that in terms of the sanctions that have been imposed. >> the ukrainian president, volodymyr zelenskyy, agrees but he he wants to punish russia even further today, he addressed political and business leaders at the world economic forum in switzerland. he is now calling for maximum level of sanctions on russian oil and banks.
7:06 pm
meantime, a russian diplomat at the united nations in geneva has quit his job in protest of russia's invasion. today, he issued an extraordinary statement. he wrote, in part, the aggressive war unleashed by putin against ukraine, and in fact, against the buyer western world is not only a crime against out cranian people but also perhaps the most serious crime against the people of russia with a bold letter "z" crossing out all hopes and prospects for a prosperous, free, society in our country his statement comes, as a court inkyiv today sentenced a russian soldier to life in prison it is the first war crimes trial since russia's invasion began. the 21-year-old russian admitted he shot an unarmed map in the head in the early days of the war. is says he doesn't want to kill him and he was just following orders. other russian troop are doing just that in eastern ukraine. that's where zelenskyy estimates
7:07 pm
russian forces are now killing up to 100 ukrainian soldiers per day. retired air force lieutenant general now, served as air force intelligence, surveilen, and reconn reconn reconnaissance chief of staff. general, ukraine yans are now deploying american-made howitzers. a ukrainian commander says this weapon brings them closer to victory. do you agree >> yes, shep i do. um, i also agree we need to continue our support of the ukrainians because as you see and as you very well described, the russians are continuing with their scorched-earth tactics and as a result, along with the continued egregious russian violations of the laws of armed con flick, i think what you are going to see is president zelenskyy is going to seek a complete restoration of ukrainian territory and sovereignty.
7:08 pm
therefore, there is no cease-fire deal on the horizon and the went is gonna continue to need to support ukraine with weapons that matter. >> general, the russian diplomat who quit his job today, and issued a really stern rebuke of vad vladimir putin how big an impact can something like that have an the world stage for putin? >> i think what it does is it underlines the -- the position that most virtually all -- not -- not all but a good number of western nations hold. and it just validates, particularly coming from a russian diplomat, the seriousness of the nature of putin's aggression and coming from russian diplomat, think that lends a lot of credibility to someone internal to -- or at least previously internal to -- to
7:09 pm
putin's -- uh government coming out in this regard just lends a lot of credence to what we all know. >> general, a top jefrmen official, before we go, says he sees an eu oil embargo breakthrough within days could that turn the tide of putin's were economically? >> well, i think, you know, sanctions and limitations can certainly help in the long-term. but they are not going to have an immediate impact in the battle space um, i believe we need to continue with these kinds of actions. but once again, they will have an effect over the long-term, not in the short-term. in the short-term, we need to provide president zelenskyy and the ukrainian military weapons they can put to good use in eliminating the russian' occupation now. >> lieutenant general, thank you, sir voters in five states heading to the polls for
7:10 pm
primaries tomorrow ones that could determine which party controls congress. in alabama, voters will choose their candidates for an open-senate seat congressman mo brooks has been trailing former-business council of alabama president katy brit in recent polls. congressman brooks, one of the first members of congress to say he would challenge the 2020 election results former president trump origina originally endorsed brooks then in march, changed his mind. he accused brooks of going woke, as he put it, after the congressman told voters to leave the 2020 election in the past. in arkansas, the former-white house press secretary for form were president, sarah sanders, taking aim at the governor's mansion. she picked up support from her old boss, and political experts say she is expected to win the nom -- primary. if texas, george peabush is taking on incumbent general

7:12 pm
with us, associate he editor for real clear politics. donald trump backs dave perdue mike pence backs brian kemp. that looks like a blow-out win for kemp and really a camp pain stop for mike pence. >> yeah, shepherd. mike pence swooped in days before the contest, reading the polls and seeing governor brian kemp was already way, way ahead of the trump-backed challenger, former-senator david perdue. he got on while the getting was good, and came into do this last-minute rally with him showing some distance from president trump and -- and we know now because pence has told "the new york times," he intends -- pretty intends to run for president whether his former-running mate, president trump, runs or not in 2024 so, it is an opportunity to back a winner for pence it is an opportunity to get some daylight from the former
7:13 pm
president and this was the contest, shepard, that donald trump looked forward to in the primary season the most. this was the showdown. brian kemp was at the top of his list of targeted foes and if the polls are correct, it will be a humiliating defeat. >> then, there is georgia. herschel walker a republican in a crowded primary field. this is an important one for republican that could set a tone. >> well, that's right. herschel walker is a beloved figure in georgia, shepard, kwls why republicans firmly believe that he will -- will be able to overco overcome a certain -- um -- incidents of baggage not only allegations from his wife squoers about abuse and assault but also questions about whether or not he has been truthful advocate business dealings and or whether he graduated from university of georgia. these are things he has not so
7:14 pm
much been questioned about in the primary campaign where he has been way ahead the entire time republicans feel confident, however, that all of the good feeling about herschel walker is going win the day, and he is going to be a strong candidate for them in november. >> beyond georgia, ab, what races are you looking at as important on a national scale? >> i think the alabama race is fascinating, shepard, because as you noted, mo brooks had the backing of trump trump dumped him but he has refused to back any challengers in that race now, mo brooks is surging a bit in that race against the very pop pop establishment candidate, katy brit. if she can't win outright, that will be a fascinating runoff where we will see people urging the president, behind closed
7:15 pm
doors, to the former president to endorse someone mo brooks will be obviously capitalizing on momentum of winning -- of getting to a runoff and katy brit will have a real challenge on her hands. very interesting, trump has stayed silent since dumping brooks. >> polls open tomorrow coverage here tomorrow night, amy stoddard, thank you. sexual abuse allegations in the southern bap tint convention unwith woman says her nightmare started in her own home. the new report detailing how church leadership tried to silence stories like hers. health experts releasing more details today on recent monkeypox cases. and issuing a new warning as they learn more about how it is being spread. and the long-waiting list for one particular hotel room in indiana. nothing special about this motel room, but the people who recently stayed there? that's a different story
