tv New Day With Alisyn Camerota and John Berman CNN May 25, 2020 2:59am-4:01am PDT
the first summer holiday since the start of the covid outbreak and americans are flocking to beaches from coast to coast. >> you wouldn't know a pandemic is going on by looking at the beach today. >> people are being respectful, they really are, even on the beach. >> you don't know who's infected. if you can't social distance you must wear a mask. >> it is impossible to do that.
>> no, this is one time when we truly are all in this welcome to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. this is a special holiday edition of "new day." it is monday, may 25th, 6:00 in new york. i wanttowelcome jim sciutto in for john berman. >> thank you so much. happy memorial day. >> we'll remember the brave men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for this country. this year we also pay tribute to the 100,000 americans who lost to the coronavirus. many are headed beaches, pools and parks. not all wore masks, as you can see. look at the huge crowds in daytona beach. here's an aerial view for you. check out this scene in
missouri. hundreds of people elbow to elbow at a pool party. we'll talk about the safest way to be outside. >> that's not one of them. 18 states are seeing new cases rise by 10% or more. this includes arkansas where the governor there confirms his state is experiencing a second wave now. 22 other states are holding steady. while ten states are seeing cases climb. that, of course, a requirement by recommendations for reopening. despite all that, president trump urging schools and churches to open. the president made little mention of the staggering human toll of the pandemic this weekend. instead, he golfed on both saturday and sunday. let's begin our coverage with cnn's rosa flores. she's live in pensacola beach, florida. tell us how widespread it is. >> reporter: we have seen a lot of crowds here in pensacola
beach, florida. we've also seen a lot of social distancing, especially on the beach. but as you were mentioning, as millions of americans are flocking to beaches and parks around the country, there is extra meaning this year on memorial day as we remember the nearly 100,000 americans who have died from the coronavirus. look, the weather has been nice, people are fatigued. they are tired of quarantining. we're seeing large crowds around the country and many people ignoring social distancing rules. scenes from the unofficial kickoff to the summer showing many americans not practicing social distancing measures. >> you wouldn't know a pandemic was going on by looking at the beach today. >> crowded beaches and parks and even restaurants and bars. >> everybody going to get sick one day. that's life. >> this pool party in the ozarks showing revelers nearly arm to arm. >> let's shut down eastbound.
>> take a look at this police footage from daytona beach showing hundreds gathered in the streets. >> we're going to have to figure out how we can control these crowds and largely how we can inform the visitors. >> ocean city, maryland's boardwalk packed with people. many without face coverings. dr. deborah birx urging americans to stay vigilant with wearing masks. >> we have said to people, there's clear scientific evidence now by all the droplet experiments that happen and that others have done to show that a mask does prevent droplets from reaching others. we need to be wearing masks in public when we cannot social distance. >> the question of wearing a mask has become political. from president trump repeatedly refuse to go wear one in public to protesters gathering outside state capitals, many without faces covered rallying to expedite the reopening process. ohio governor says this should
not be a debate. >> this is not about politics. we wear the mask. it's been very clear. the studies have shown you wear the mask not to protect yourself as much as to protect others. >> in missouri, two hairstylist potentially exposed clients to the disease while working up to eight days with symptoms. >> i think we need to comprehend the consequences of this. if we're going to work sick and sharing this illness with others, that's not a good approach. in arkansas, a high school swim party helped spread the coronavirus to several people. >> they're young, they're swimming. they're just having activity. positive cases resulted from that. it's an encouragement to be disciplined in our activities. >> with president trump pushing for churches to welcome back congregants. >> church is ee sepgs. >> restricting indoor gatherings
to ten people. >> i would hope we get to houses of worship sooner than later. but we want to do it right, responsibly and don't kill anybody by doing it too fast. >> reporter: here in pensacola beach, florida where i am, this is where texas, louisiana, georgia, people drive to. when you compare the number of cars that drove in last year to this year jubs on saturday alone. it's about 20,000. alis alisyn, i asked the county commissioner, is he concerned about the potential spread of the coronavirus and he said that, of course, he is. but escambia county is following all the rules and regulations set forth by ron desantis to open in a smart and methodical way. >> rosa, thank you very much for that report. at the same time, people are rushing to beaches like north carolina's outer banks, that state is reporting their highest
one-day speak in coronavirus cases. how are they handle it? the mayor of kill devil hills. a beach county on the north carolina banks. it's a beautiful community. i don't blame people for want to go go there. mayor, tell us about this weekend and how you feel -- there's an influx of visitors at the same time -- as i pull up the numbers here, this weekend had a big spike of cases in north carolina. the highest one-day total. tell us about that contradiction. >> mayor, can you hear me? >> hmm. mayor sprawl? i think we've lost the mayor. the point is, jim, that people -- there's a huge influx of people to all of these beaches. you can see the video and understand why. but the numbers in some places like north carolina are not going in the direction that
officials would want. we'll get the mayor back. >> it's why the experts are saying open up. but slowly and deliberately. let's speak to a couple of them now. dr. adalja, a disease specialist and juliette kayyem is a former assistant secretary of homeland secretary. doctor, if i could begin with you, we have a lot of folks watching today. it's memorial day. after all, weather is going to be nice in a lot of places. what is safe to do on a day like today if you choose to go out in public? what's not safe in your view? >> it's important to remember that the virus is going to be there in all of our activities until we have a vaccine. everything is greater than a zero risk. that said, some things are easier to do in social distance. things like being outdoors. when you're outdoors, avoid congregate settings. where you can wash your hands frequently, don't touch your
face. you have to mind common touch surfaces even with an area with outdoors. there are going to be tables and chairs that could be a vehicle for spreading the virus. the point is, if you have to interact with people, there are ways to do it in a safe manner. all activities, don't necessarily involve the same amount of people. you have to choose them based upon risk tolerance knowing the virus will be with us and you're going to threaten to expose yourself to this virus. >> juliette, i thought it was interesting what the fda commissioner said yesterday. he basically talked about how something that we all know, but he spells it out. that the virus is not contained. listen to this. >> i'll read it for you. with the country starting to open up this holiday weekend, i again remind everyone that the coronavirus is not yet contained. it's up to every individual to protect themselves and their community. social distancing, hand washing, wearing masks protects us all. i thought what would containment
look like? there are some communities that have done a good job of staying indoors and they're not seeing new cases. so then what would containment -- if that's not containment, what is? >> consistent containment across the united states or countrywide. and i think also he was speaking to the fact that many of the jurisdictions are opening up and not seeing evidence of -- i got the most interesting part of the quote was the next part when he says, it's up to every individual. i think what we've seen happen in the last week was the white house move from a sort of government pol about what it would mean to deal with this virus, live with a certain amount of risk to essentially every man and woman on their own. in other words, every individual has to make their own risk assessment about whether they want to risk either being a carrier or actually getting infected. i thought that was interesting
to me. yeah, that's the stage we're in. in which each of us individually, it's our responsibility to wear a mask, stay away from each other, social distancing. >> listen, that -- any decision you make is a decision not only for yourself, but others. for instance, if you're asymptomatic at the at the time, there might be a risk of spreading it. juliette, to you, in terms of explaining to people so they can make those decisions and understand the stay-at-home orders and the relaxation of them, has the government, have the agencies, have the dr. birxes of the world done a good job of explaining about flattening the curve, which is the initial explanation and what stage we're in now. the curve has -- nationally, at looebs has flattened. it's different now but still important, if you know what i mean. >> it may be all of our faults.
americans understand flatten the curve and there's no risk. no, that was not the point. to ensure that there would be hospital a capacity should there be too many cases. the stage we're in now is called the adaptive recovery stage. we're going to live with the virus for a period of time until the vaccine. it means not that there's a single solution. this is where my security background comes into play. like physical security, airport security. we talk about later security, that you have a whole bunch of different tools from who is the passenger to a lock on the cockpit door to screening to taking off your shoes. you have multiple tools to minimize the risk. we should think about living with the virus the same way. we'll have layered defenses. everyone has different tools. but we have to use them all. that's why masks are so important. they're not perfect but they work. they're part of an arsenal of efforts that all of us have to make to one, be kind to each
other and also to minimize the risk. >> dr. adalja, when you see packed pool parties like this one, it's hard for -- we're not on the ground there. it's hard for us to know exactly what's going on. but from this aerial view, you don't see people wearing masks, of course and you don't see people social distancing. but when people are outdoors and it's warm, isn't it harder to transmit the virus? >> it is something that is harder. it's not impossible. so when you compare outdoors versus indoors, transmission seems to be more likely. when you're closer to people in an indoor setting when the environmental conditions are favorable to virus transmission. that doesn't mean you're impervious. if you're less than six feet from somebody, the virus is going to be able to get to you irrespective if you're outdoors or indoors.
outdoors are more naturally socially distanced. that's what we're seeing. it's not 100%. >> dr. -- in states they try to balance, getting people back to work and reducing the risk of transmission of the disease, where do you see folks getting that balance? sadly infused every factor of this debate here, even the facts, who is getting it right? >> that's for you juliette? >> oh, i'm sorry. you said doctor, so thanks for the upgrade. various jurisdictions are getting -- they're going to have a tiered opening. in fact, massachusetts is taking it very slow. the governor is taking -- the
same in ohio. what that basically means is what the priorities have to be aligned with the likelihood that you will be infected. how do we think about it? we think about what's the likelihood or what's the interaction. in other words, a gym is different than say, a dry cleaner. how many people might you interact with if we open up. that's why churches are a big deal. that's a lot of people. it has nothing to do with the religion. finally, can the jurisdiction or the place minimize the risk? we're balancing those three factors. that's what we're trying to do across jurisdictions, across industry. it's the harder part. shutting down shockingly was the easy part. >> dr. adalja, juliette kayyem, great to see you both. thank you very much. >> juliette, i know i called you a doctor. that's my gift on this memorial day. >> my mom will be so happy. >> thanks to both of you.
sadly, the u.s. death toll nears 100,000 americans. president trump spent the weekend golfing. and insulting people on twitter and spreading the conspiracy theory. we'll discuss next. the #1 hyaluronic acid moisturizer delivers 2x the hydration for supple, bouncy skin. neutrogena®. ♪[ siren ] & doug
get all your pet essentials right when you need them, with curbside pickup at petsmart. just order online, drive up, check-in, and pick up. i remember my dadg coming up the stairs in my grandpop's house where we were living, sitting at the end of my bed and saying "joey, i'm going to have to leave for a while. go down to wilmington, delaware, with uncle frank. they're good jobs down there, honey. and in a little while, i'll be able to send for you and mom and jimmy and val, and everything's going to be fine." for the rest of our life, my dad never failed to remind us that a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. it's about your dignity. it's about respect. it's about your place in the community. it's about being able to look your child in the eye and say, honey, it's going to be ok and know it's true. you never quit on america.
the numbers, they're hard to comprehend this morning. remember, these are people with families and stories. the coronavirus death toll in the united states is nearing 100,000 people. president trump has not acknowledged that sobering reality. instead, he spent the holiday weekend tweeting indults in between two round of golf. joe johns live at the white house with more. joe, this seems to be, frankly, part of the president's message to some degree. deliberately playing down the outbreak while going back to na normal or attempting it. >> that's true, jim. an unusually sad holiday weekend
here in washington, d.c. the nation's capital. as the u.s. approach has deadly milestone in the coronavirus pandemic. the president, though, spent most of his weekend, as you said, either tweeting on his phone or on the links playing golf. president trump spending much of the holiday weekend doing two things, golfing and tweeting. sunday, protesters gathered outside his course in virginia criticizing him for golfing while americans are still grappling with the pandemic. one sign declaring, i care. do you? this visit marked the 358 the president has made to one of his properties and the 266th trip to one of his golf clubs since taking office. president trump also reigniting his feud with former attorney general jeff sessions, calling on him to drop out of the alabama republican senate primary. >> jeff sessions was a disaster as attorney general. should have never been attorney general. was not qualified.
he's not mentally qualified to be attorney general. he was the biggest problem. >> the back and forth continuing throughout the weekend with the president, again, criticizing sessions for recusing himself from the russia investigation. but sessions firing back, i did my duty and you're damn fortunate i did. meantime, the president defending his decision to golf tweeting it was the first time he had played in almost three months. the president further took the opportunity to attack former president obama and former vice president biden for frequently vacationing and relaxing while in office. even renewing his attack on obama for, quote, always playing golf. a line of attacks then candidate trump often made against his predecess predecessor. >> it was reported today, played 250 rounds of golf. >> everything is executive order because he doesn't have enough time because he's playing so much golf. >> i'm going to be working for you, i'm knot going to have time to play golf. >> trump criticized obama for golfing at the height of the ebola response in 2014.
that public health crisis saw four diagnosed cases in the united states. as the u.s. death toll from coronavirus approaches 100,000, noticeably missing from the president's tweet storm, any mention of the americans who have died. instead, tweeting positively about the nation's response, writing cases numbers and deaths are going down all over the country. and that last tweet is misleading. ten states, according to our count, have seen increases -- have seen decreases over the last week but 18 cases have -- 18 states seen increases. today the president is expected to visit fort mchenry in baltimore. that, of course, is a place where local officials have said they're concerned about the president's visit because they say it sends the wrong message. the president is loalso expecte to go to the tomb of the unknown
in arlington cemetery to lay a wreath. alisyn, back to you. >> thank you very much for all of that. joining us now is cnn senior political analyst john avlon. one thing, over the past week he's been very interested in churches. very interested in churches reopening. he's encouraged them to do so, even against the advice of medical experts. but then yesterday he didn't go to church. he played golf. so how do we process that? >> just more of the do as i say, not as i do presidency. it shows how he uses -- he's willing to use religion as a political weapon but not walk the walk. he's never been a person of faith. i do think as america marches towards that grim model of 100,000, to be golfing, to be tweeting, to never mention the
victims, he's raging because his ability to distract doesn't work. he seems small against the scale of the crisis we face. that's a very stark reminder how disconnected and apparently callous the president can be. >> john avlon, everything is political with this president a few months from an election. does he calculate a political benefit to doing what he's doing here? >> the president is all impulse. he is no self-control. so while the president has a certain gut political cunning, it has proven ineffective, particularly -- you have to admire his ability to capture the nomination out of nowhere. he's never been about strategy, always about impulse. that has served him well up to a.. but it absolutely is a misfit for leading the nation during a pandemic. that's been revealed. how often the emperor is not wearing clothes, he's making
accusations. it doesn't fit anything resembling a commander in chief. this is the first president who has no impulse or apparent desire to unite the nation. he likes to divide and attack. makes him seem petty and small. >> this has gone public that he's having with former attorney general jeff sessions. for a long time, he was just insulting jeff sessions and he was taking it. now jeff sessions seems to be less inclined to just sit silently and it's been interesting to watch. first of all, president trump is saying he was a horrible attorney general, should never have been chosen. wasn't qualified. he chose him. he's the person who picked him. i'm not sure who president trump thinks how jeff sessions got there. but sessions tweeted back this again. he said you and i fight for the same agenda. he's talking about a billow owe the opponent in the senate race
is so weak, he won't debate me in alabama. alabama will not take order from washington on who to send to the senate. so what do you think jeff sessions' chances are going at the president? >> look, i think jeff sessions is finally perhaps learning the right lesson of donald trump's rise, which is people respect strength. for so long, he's been cowering like a puppy trying to avoid a newspaper as the president insults him at every step and emasculates him in the eyes of the republican primary voters. he was the -- 20-year senator. but it's a larger tale as well, when no one ls would go near him, he supported president trump. that's how -- >> loyalty doesn't -- for the
first time he's fighting back. people respect strength, not weakness. >> john, there's clearly impatience with the lockdowns in many states across the country, some of which you're seeing play out in the videos we've been airing here as people freed from the cage, go out and violate many of the best health recommendations here. on the politics of it, given the real, though, economic damage, does the president potentially have something right in terms of throwing his lot in -- when i say right, not in terms of health advice, in terms of the politics here, throwing his lot in with the impatient in this country and saying now, enough of listening to the doctors, go out and do what you want to do? >> yeah. everyone is saying he has it right by saying let's ignore science and medicine. although that certainly is his impulse. look, we're watching president trump pull off an incredible magic trick, which is to campaign as an incumbent
president as the outsider. it's consistent with his base. rarely -- i wrote a book ten years ago about extremism in politics. rarely, anything as surreal and self-defeatingly stupid as people protesting against health pec experts in the middle of a pandemic. he plays politics very well. his ability to listen to science, unite the nation, to lead while minimizing -- >> i guess john has had enough of us. >> it happens. that's television in the age of the coronavirus. >> absolutely. honestly, jim, people have gotten very comfortable with all of the tech any kpal gremlins that happen every day. obviously, it's hard to do all of this without the usual setup. we're pulling it off. our thank to john. >> have you ever had a relative freeze on a zoom call anybody at
home? i think you have, right? >> that's right. meanwhile, brazil president greeting supporters while not wearing a mask despite the growing outbreak in that country. overnight, the u.s. announcing a travel ban from brazil. we have details and a live report, next. tempur-pedic's mission is to give you truly transformative sleep. so, no more tossing and turning. because only tempur-pedic adapts and responds to your body... ...so you get deep, uninterrupted sleep. during the tempur-pedic summer of sleep, all tempur-pedic mattresses are on sale!
dyoo-hoo, progressive shoppers. summer of sleep, we laughed with you. sprinkles are for winners. we surprised you. on occasion, we've probably even annoyed you. we've done this all with one thing in mind. to help protect the things you love. and if we can't offer you the best price we'll help you find a better one. it's not always the lowest! even if it's not with us. that's how we've done it for the past 80 years. not just today, or this month, but always.
brazil has seen an explosion of coronavirus cases and deaths. now the u.s. is banning travel from that country. brazil has seen a record increase in just the past 24 hours. as you can see on your screen. they have the second highest number of virus cases in the world behind only the united states. cnn's nick paton walsh is live in brabrazil. what's the situation there? >> reporter: now 22,000 dead. testing is a lot harder to come
by in comparison. we're in the worst place in brazil. it's the worst hit city in the middle of the amazon. it was extraordinary yesterday to see the president here wading into another crowd of supporters, at times wearing a mask but at times not wearing a mask. he's consistently played down the threat of the virus and perhaps the seriousness of the infection banning travel to the u.s. from brazil or anyone who has been in brazil for 14 days prior. here in ma knaus, they've been hit exceptionally hard. at one point digging mass graves. in a cabinet recording released by the supreme court, it referred to the mayor of the city in very offensive terms because of the message of protecting his population.
i want to put the defensive comments from the brazilian president criticizing somebody for looking after their own population. here's what he had to say in response. >> when you hear the president call you a piece of [ bleep ], why did he do that? >> his dream is to be -- he's stupid. >> you blame his words for the outbreak here because people were too busy going about their daily lives. >> with those deaths of corona in brazil. i think he's -- >> seeing around him and the number of people sick there, if you had a message for him. >> mr. president bolsonaro, please shut up and stay home. resign. resign. resign. >> why? >> because he doesn't govern
brazil. >> reporter: extraordinary. in a country like this, seeing the peak possibly in a week or two weeks away and in sao paulo spreading. they're battling the controversial message of their president. appearing in a crowd without a mask. he's talking about something you have to fight in a war but call it a little flu. it's something people heard in the previous weeks and admit they didn't take the social distancing measures they needed to do. masks mandatory where i am here. it's rising exceptionally fast and in this city, it's extraordinary how hard they've been hit and the anger often directed towards their president. back to you. >> absolutely. hearing that response was as well. this memorial day will look different than years past. up next we honor the americans who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country.
state farm is announcing the good neighbor relief program we're returning $2 billion dollars to our auto policyholders through may 31st. because now, more than ever, being a good neighbor means everything. like a good neighbor, state farm is there. being a good neighbor means everything. i remember my dadg coming up the stairs
in my grandpop's house where we were living, sitting at the end of my bed and saying "joey, i'm going to have to leave for a while. go down to wilmington, delaware, with uncle frank. they're good jobs down there, honey. and in a little while, i'll be able to send for you and mom and jimmy and val, and everything's going to be fine." for the rest of our life, my dad never failed to remind us that a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. it's about your dignity. it's about respect. it's about your place in the community. it's about being able to look your child in the eye and say, honey, it's going to be ok and know it's true. you never quit on america. and you deserve a president who will never quit on you. unite the country is responsible for the content of this advertising.
their country. this memorial day, however, will be very different because of the global pandemic. joining us now cnn military analyst and retired lieutenant general mark hurt ling. served 37 years commanding force this is iraq. always good to speak with you. you have experienced loss in wartime, more than many. most you might say. you have a way of honoring soldiers who gave their lives. tell us what that is. >> yeah, jim, good morning to you. the thing we do, a couple of us do, three of us have a box. general dempsey, from our time together in 2003 and '4 in iraq. it's a small wooden box. here it is here. make it matter on the front it says. it's a box that contains the pictures of soldiers that were under our command that we lost in combat. my box, after several tours in
iraq, unfortunately, contains 253 cards with soldiers' pictures and some details of their families and their names. every day, i pick a few cards out, not just on memorial day but every day and reflect on those individuals who gave the last full measure of devotion to the country and sacrificed for our way of life. so every memorial day, i sometimes come on cnn and talk about an individual and today that happens to be a guy by the name of lenny cowherd. he was 23 when he was killed. a second lieutenant, class of 2003 from west point. i actually met him before combat at gettysburg, pennsylvania, when he was a history major and was taking a staff right here with our youngest son, also a cadet at west point at the time. he was killed by a sniper's bullet when he was 23 years old. that was in 2004. thinking about him today, he would have been 38 years old
today. that intervening time, those 16 years you don't really know what may have happened in his life. he's left behind a young wife, sara. they could have had children. he could be a lieutenant colonel in the army now commanding. those are the kinds of things i think about of things that were lost given the circumstances. >> it makes sense. you get to see the faces of them. takes away any sense of a number. these are people with lives and years lost and memories lost as a result. you know, this year typically on a memorial day folks could go out and go to parades and visit cemeteries, et cetera. but parades are off, there are restrictions at cemeteries. like arlington here outside of d.c. so how do you recommend americans pay tribute to folks like lieutenant cowherd. >> what i've said before, jim,
many of us take a specific time today on memorial day and we reflect. we stop everything and go through a couple of minutes of silence an reflect on these individuals. for me, it's 3:00 this afternoon. i'll toast him with a glass of bourbon. you can do that still on a memorial day weekend like this weekend. but i'd also suggest that it's what you do beyond just taking that moment of reflection. now you contribute to society. how you serve others. that's what service is all about. it's something we can do every day. not just on this day in may that's reserved for the memory of our soldiers. >> there's, of course, everybody likes to talk about soldiers and wrap themselves in the banner. in the midst of a crisis like this country is experiencing right now, where are you seeing good leadership in responding to it and bringing americans together rather thandie vieding them? >> yeah.
well, i happen, jim, since i retired in 2013, i've the honor and privilege of working with a hospital and teaching physicians and nurses and administrators a little bit about leadership. in fact, we developed a leadership course and one of the things we do is take those health care providers to gettysbu gettysburg. we have them portray a civil war general. to see how leadership is applied in a time of crisis. i've been doing that for five years now. during this pandemic, i've watched the 500 or so leaders we've put through that leadership course step to the forefront. not only the science and med ans as skill and savvy, but understanding the art of engagement in long-term planning in crisis response. it's been fascinating to see our health care providers and one of the things i tell them in the course, they're part of a profession like the profession of arms with soldiers. medicine and the military are the only two professions that deal in life and death.
so they've really got to get things right. what i'm seeing today in a new career and a new job is the phenomenal work of health care providers serving not only their patients but serving the nation, community health, taking things forward and being the experts in their field and understanding how to react in a crisis response scenario. it's fascinating to see the similarities between soldiers in combat and the health care providers in this particular pandemic that we're experiencing right now. >> pitting their lives on the line, too. aren't they? their lives and their health. sadly, many of them giving their lives in response to this. general herd ling, it's great to have you on. whether it's raising bourbon, which i might do as well or other ways to pay tribute. >> i'll do it twice today, jim. one toast to the soldiers that i
served with and had the honor of serving for and the second one for the health care providers. i may have two toasts today with a little glass of makers mark. >> good advice. we won't fault you for that, general. >> okay. thanks, jim. >> overseas, anger in hong kong is boiling over. these are protesters clashing with police over china imposing a national security law in the territory there. are u.s. sanctions against china as a result on the horizon? we'll have a live report, next. ♪ limu emu & doug [ siren ] give me your hand! i can save you...

now to this developing story. protesters in hong kong clashing with police over china's plan to impose tough new security laws designed to quash the protests. evan watson is live in hong kong with the latest. what are you seeing there? >> reporter: good morning, alisyn. hong kong police say they arrested at least 180 people in these clashes and protests on sunday. they're accusing them of rioting
and vandalism. this is as the chinese government announced that it's going to impose this new security law on hong kong, which is the -- basically the freest corner of modern-day china through a number of international treaties from the handover of british rule to chinese rule. it's supposed to have a multiparty system of democratic freedoms in place until 2047. there are real fears from critics that this law could help china establish secret police headquarters here and take away some of those freedoms. china's top diplomat in hong kong tried to reassure diplomats this morning. take a listen. >> there's absolutely no need to panic. a worry that you might be unfavorably impacted. to not be intimidated or even misled and exploited by those with ulterior motives.
in particular, do not be a rumor monger yourself or join the anti-china forces in stigmatizing and demonizing the legislation. do not obstruct or provoke confrontation. >> reporter: now, beijing argues that six months of protests increasingly violent here in hong kong pose a threat to all of china's national security. they've been describing all of the opposition as terrorist and separatist. it has not taken into account the loyal opposition, moderates who have not engaged in violence. that's where a lot of the concern is here. that they could be wrapped up under the same umbrella as a kind of police state culture could be imposed. it could end its days at the center of international trade as international companies may not feel safe to have their employees here. alisyn. >> ivan watson from hong kong,
