1:01 am
joining us here in the united states and all around the world. you are watching "cnn newsroom." i'm rosemary church. just ahead, president joe biden orders 200 million additional vaccine doses, but can he achieve his am bichbitious goal beating back the pandemic. plus, a new vote shows republicans may be unwilling to convict president trump. we'll take a closer look at what democrats might do next. and 100,000 dead. the uk confronts a devastating toll from the coronavirus pandemic. good to have you with us. well, the u.s. is on a wartime footing against covid-19. and president joe biden will make a major offensive with the
1:02 am
purchase of 200 million more vaccine doses. a white house official says the u.s. is increasing its order of both the pfizer biontech and moderna vaccines by 50%. the goal is to have enough to vaccinate 300 million americans, raising the numbers on this map significantly by the end of the summer. but getting the order in is only the first hurdle. right now, states have administered just over half the vaccines that have already been distributed. kaitlan collins has more now from the white house. prosecute president joe biden announcing the u.s. will buy 200 million more doses of coronavirus vaccines in an attempt to boost nationwide vaccinations. >> end goal is to beat covid-19. and the way we do that is get more people vaccinated. >> reporter: the u.s. plans to buy 100 million more doses from pfizer, another 100 million from moderna, a 50 increase from each
1:03 am
that the white house says will provide the u.s. with enough to vaccinate almost all americans by the end of this summer. >> this is a wartime undertaking. it's not hyperbole. when i say that, people say wartime? i say, yeah, more than 400,000 americans have already died. >> reporter: the white house told governors it increase how many vaccines are sent to states 16% starting next week. >> until now, we had to guess how much vaccine for next week. that's what the governors had to do, how many are we getting next week, this is unacceptable. >> reporter: the biden administration refused to say how many are in the stockpile,al midconfusion everyone who wants to get one will get one. >> i think that's going to be this spring. it's going lobe a logistical challenge of anything we've ever tried. >> reporter: biden's aides say
1:04 am
the time line could shift and vaccine supply will be in place by spring. >> everybody won't be eligible this spring, you know, even as the cdc continues to provide updated guidance but he would certainly refer to that. >> reporter: press secretary jen psaki is saying they will real. >> the president didn't say the new goal is. the president said i can hope we can do more than that. that is certainly, of course, his hope. >> reporter: the white house is reluctant to weigh in on president trump's looming impeachment trial but president biden told that biden said it would be a worse effect if it didn't happen. biden said 17 republicans won't vote to convict the president. and leave the counting to
1:05 am
capitol hill. >> i can promise you we were leave the vote counting to leaders in the senate from now on. >> reporter: and after biden raised the commitment to get more doses of the vaccine for later this year. even though they're not on hand, they're in the process of being produced. his chief of staff ron klain said this doesn't mean there are not challenges ahead of them. they have to focus on infrastructure and vaccine hesitancy as well. kaitlan collins, cnn, the white house. >> kaitlan mentioned the new white house chief of staff ron klain. he has been cautious not to overpromise on the vaccine front, pointing to the system the new administration inherited. >> i think we've -- you know, we've been here seven days. we've ramped up capacity higher than it's ever been. we're moving into the states faster with certainty and clarity. the president is very honest.
1:06 am
we're inheriting a system that was built with limited capacity. we're asking the drugmakers to dial that up. it's only so fast they can increase that. >> dr. ester choo is a professor of medicine at oregon health and science university. she joins us live from portland. thank you so much, doctor, for talking with us and for all you that do. >> glad to be here, rosemary. president biden vowing to get all american adults vaccinated by the end of summer. he's ordered an additional 200,000 vaccine doses and just committed to increase doses to states by 16% starting next week. but state governors say that is not enough. what is your reaction to all of this? >> well, i think it's mostly helpful, we're still only six days into the new biden administration. and i think what they're doing, really, is signaling that they're committed to vaccine
1:07 am
manufacturing and distribution from end to end. so starting with the drug companies and the manufacturing process, trying to figure out what any bottleneck might be that interrupt the supply and then seeing it all the way through delivery to the state. and then working with states, and trying to figure out what the barriers have been on that end, in terms of not just receiving supply, but mobilizing supply and getting it that last mile into arms. so, still very early, and, of course, they walked into a situation where not much was being done downstream, so understandably, states are really frustrated. there hasn't been a lot of guidance. and this administration is just getting started and cannot do miracles. but there is the commitment, the thought, the communication, and the plan to help at every level. >> yeah. it is the glimmer of hope we're all looking for. of course, one the supplies are assured these vaccine doses need
1:08 am
to be administered as fast as possible which is a challenge itself. but what about those americans who refuse to get vaccinated? what impact will that likely have on achieving herd immunity in this country? >> this is something that is also improving over time. we see new data coming out that increasingly, americans are more receptive to vaccine. i think every week that goes by people feel less and less like they're guinea pigs, like the first wave. i think the influential things, getting more, knowing more information and also knowing somebody who received the vaccine, those things will improve over time. >> many thanks to cnn medical analyst dr. esther choo speaking to moo earlier. another major biden priority is foreign policy on tuesday, he
1:09 am
spoke with russian president vladimir putin. mr. biden has attacked the russian leader in the past. the world will be watching closely for any signs of easing of tensions. the white house said the two had a lengthy list of topics to discuss. they included the poisoning of kremlin critic alexei navalny and a recent cyber attack. and cnn's fred pleitgen joins me now from moscow. good to see you, fred. what more are you learning about this chat between the two leaders? >> reporter: hi there, rosemary, well, this was a remarkable chat and also a productive one. i think one of the things that became clear after we got the readouts both from the kremlin and white house side as well, the u.s.' new style, if you will, of dealing with russia that there is going to be or possibly cooperation between the two sides, white house and the kremlin, on areas where the u.s. feels it's in america's and its allies national interests, obviously, the russians need to
1:10 am
feel it's in their interests as well but also that the white house is going to stand firm, that they believe the russians are infringing on united states or its allies. i think one of the most important thing that came out of the phone call, probably by far the most important thing is the extension of a new s.t.a.r.t. nuclear arms reduction treaty. that's something that's very important. joe biden said that's is something he wanted to achieve. vladimir putin in the past has said that as well. it was only minutes later that the kremlin announced that vladimir putin had sent that to russian parliament to be approved. and the ratification of that could happen today so very quick results. the white house saying there's other area where is they see possible operations like arms control, like, for instance, new security challenges as they put it. but they say there are areas of concern, like, for instance, the sovereignty of ukraine. very important that was mentioned in the readout by the white house. i don't believe it was mentioned in the readout by the kremlin.
1:11 am
and the solar winds attack. and the possible bounties by russians on soldiers in u.s. and afghanistan. and also, the poisoning of alexei navalny. not telling cnn, that was something that was debated, the poisoning of alexei navalny, of course, that's a big topic here in russia as well. but you can already see there's sort of a new mode of operation between the biden administration and the kremlin. both administrations saying they want to stay in touch. they will have a working relationship but not speaking of the reset that president trump spoke of with his administration but, quite frankly, the obama administration and the george bush administration was trying to achieve as well, rosemary. >> fred pleitgen, many thanks for bringing us up to date. appreciate it. just ahead here on cnn, why

1:14 am
1:15 am
well, here in the united states, it seems most senate republicans may be unlikely to
1:16 am
convict former president donald trump in his second impeachment trial. on tuesday, nearly every republican supported a procedural vote to dismiss the trial as unconstitutional. cnn's ryan nobles has more from washington. >> reporter: the united states senate is one step closer to the impeachment trial of former president donald trump. on tuesday, the senators were sworn in as jurors for that trial. and senator patrick leahy of vermont was selected as the presiding judge. now, it didn't come without a bit of controversy. republican senators led by rand paul offered up a point of order to ask that the impeachment trial be halted because it is not constitutional. their argument being that because of the former president is out of office that he can no longer be convicted from an impeachment article. now that ended up not going anywhere. in fact, five republicans voted with democrats to table that motion. but it did, perhaps, offer an indication where this trial is
1:17 am
headed. in fact, paul said it means that the impeachment of the former president is dead on arrival. that's because 17 republicans will have to cross party lines in order to convict president trump. there were far from 17 republicans willing to do that today. now, it's not necessarily indicative of what could happen in two weeks once the trial takes place. for instance, rob portman of ohio was someone who voted to look more into the constitutionality of the impeachment trial but also said he's open to hearing arguments over the course of those two weeks. even some of the republicans that voted against the idea that it would be unconstitutional still said they are holding out the option that they might not convict. right now, it appears unlikely that the votes are there to convict the former president. we should also point out a bit of disturbing news, senator patrick leahy who will serve as the president of this
1:18 am
impeachment trial. he was taken to the hospital after not feeling well. senator dick durbin the second ranking senator saying his wife is reported back, that senator leahy is fine. and leahy could be back in the senate on wednesday, but still, leahy is playing an important and historic role in this impeachment trial. ryan nobles, cnn, capitol hill. and as ryan reported, republicans and democrats remain mostly on the direction of the impeachment trial. lindsey graham a strong ally told fox news why he's against calling witnesses. >> if there's an effort by the democrats to call a single witness in the united states senate, they have no record in the house, there will be delay of this trial, there will be pandora's box being opened. we will want witnesses and this
1:19 am
thing will go on for weeks, if not months. i hope we have a trial based on a stipulation of facts, not witnesses and we get this behind us. >> democrat cory booker meantime said he's disappointed more republicans aren't willing to hold president trump accountable. >> it is the second siege in american history to our capitol. the first was done by the british in the war of 1812. this other one, people trying to take the seat of power was done at his behest. he should be held accountable, i'm sorry that more of my colleagues in the republican party could not see that. >> joining me now is larry sabato, director of the university of politics. good to have you, larry. >> thank you, rosemary. >> president trump's impeachment is already overshadowing a
1:20 am
multitude and now it's unlikely that the republicans will get the number to convict president trump, given the constitutionality that is anything to go by. how do you see the trial playing out? >> oh, i think the conclusions is obvious. the republicans were never going to convict donald trump. never. no matter what mitch mcconnell was saying. no matter what other senators said to cover themselves because of trump's outrageous actions on january 6th. what they're doing now is giving themselves an excuse to vote no on conviction. they're going to say, oh, well, you see it's unconstitutional. so, even though i have doubts about what president trump did on january 6th, i cannot possibly vote to convict him. it's unconstitutional. it's ridiculous. that's what they're going to say. >> if that is the case, what is the next move for the democrats? what do they need to give, given their aim, to assure he doesn't
1:21 am
ever become president of the united states for the united states of america ever again? >> the first thing they can do is really pile up the evidence, when they have the floor in the senate during the trial. and goodness knows, there's plenty of evidence. and much of it is video. so, i think it will tend to influence people in the audience, influence americans who are watching, or even the evening news programs. so that's a good thing because they want to make sure that the public stays with them. and the public is with them right now. as far as what they can do about trump, there are other ways to approach this. first of all, if in fact the republicans refuse to convict trump which i think is very likely, they could move immediately to censure trump. very strong word, censure, democrats control the house narrowly, and once he's censured
1:22 am
they could use those means to scope him off the ballot in the future. 1500 people have been charged by the justice department in connection with the capitol hill riot on january 6th. it comes as the department says it's quoting special teams to look at the deaths of a police officer and a protester joined the clashes. brian todd has the latest. >> reporter: the manhunt for suspects in the capitol assault is intensifying. >> we have more than 600 suspects in the breach of the capitol and assaulting law enforcement officers. >> reporter: and the u.s. attorney says his office is considering charges of conspiracy and sedition, possibly against militia members who may have planned part of the siege in advance. officials say they are also bolstering their investigations into the deaths of capitol police officer brian sicknick. >> law enforcement is looking at
1:23 am
the both the deaths of officer sicknick and the death of b babbett killed as well. >> reporter: investigators say they have tough choices ahead as they round up suspects. >> do you allow people to cooperate? do you try to round up the insurrectionists? the biggest problem they have is what are they going to do for people who didn't physically go into the capitol but who incited potentially, this riot? >> reporter: meanwhile, the fbi has not publicly identified who they're looking for in the investigation of the pipe bomb planted at democrat and republican party headquarters january 6th. a top fbi official saying they're looking from tips from the public and they have identified images of the person including close-ups of the suspects' shoes. this comes as we get an extraordinary mission of failure regarding the january 6th attack from the acting chief of the
1:24 am
capitol hill police. during a closed-door briefing with congress, chief yogamanda pittman apologizing saying we knew that the militia groups and white supremacist organizations would be attending. we also knew that some of these participants were intending to bring fire rm as. one source saying pittman was the operational chief on january 6th but didn't take control of the radio or command officers what to do. >> a lot of people did drop the ball. and there has to be some accountability for that. let me just say this doesn't rest solely on the shoulders of the capitol police. i mean, there are other points of failures that need to be addressed. it's too much bureaucracy to make quick decision. you got a sergeant at arms, a house and senate who failed to
1:25 am
take action as well. a breakdown in intelligence. >> reporter: meanwhile, investigators are not limiting their arrests to those who were physically at the capitol on january 6th. authorities have announced the arrest of a man named robert lemke from california who prosecutors say texted the congressman of a brother on january 6th, saying, quote, your brother is putting the entire country at risk with his lies and words. we're armed and nearby your house, end quote. he also sent a similar text to the relatively of a journalist. cnn has not been able to identify a lawyer for lemke for comment. brian todd in washington. as you heard in brian's report the acting capitol police chief told congress the department failed during the capitol riot. and we have heard strong reaction from democrats in that hearing. representative matt cartwright, a pennsylvania democrat, told cnn it was only by pure dumb
1:26 am
lukt luck that elected officials and staffers and more capitol policemen were not killed. and rosa delauro saying, they had the information. they did not act on it. tuesday, president biden signed two executive orders designed to promote racial equality. he paid tribute to george floyd and called a turning point in the nation's reckoning. >> those 8 minutes and 46 seconds that took george floyd's life opened the eyes of millions of americans and millions of people all around the world. it was the knee on the neck of justice. >> among the orders signed by biden, the justice department was directed to end contracts
1:27 am
with privately run prisons. he orred increased enforcement of a law of housing restrictions. and he reaffirmed commitments to native-american tribes and vowed to combat violence against asian-americans. ahead, hitting a bleak milestone what prime minister boris johnson had to say about that. back in a moment.

1:31 am
the virus. and statistics show that the uk has a higher per capita death rate than any of the other countries that have also lost 100,000 lives. the prime minister says he takes full responsibility for what has happened. >> i am deeply sorry for every life that has been lost and as course, as prime minister, i take full responsibility for everything that the government has done. what i can tell you is that we truly did everything we could, and continue to do everything that we can, to minimize loss of life and minimize suffering in what has been a very, very difficult stage. a very, very difficult crisis for our country. >> and let's take you live now to london. salma abdelaziz joins us now. salma, the prime minister apologizing for the deaths of more than 100,000 people
1:32 am
insisting they couldn't have done more than they did. not everyone agrees with him on that, do they? >> reporter: no, they don't, rosemary. it say somber day here. 100,000 deaths, 100,000 families have lost their life. you're more likely to be one of those victims if you're elderly, if you're criticallily vulnerable or a minority or a member of the black population. this virus exposed the socioeconomic divisions of this country. and there's a sense that the authorities here did not protect the most vulnerable. those who needed the most protection did not get it. prime minister boris johnson, of course, they're saying, look, i took full responsibility, but we did everything we could. but questions will be asked were lockdowns put in place fast enough? when scientists listened to closely enough? were actions by the government following the guidance of the
1:33 am
science as they should have been or did they act too late? did that cost lives? i think what really struck me about the prime minister's statement yesterday it wasn't just about a past tense. a death toll that we've overcome. this is about what's happening right now, rosemary. much of that death toll is due to a new variant, that spread quickly through the population that's caused thousands of deaths that's brought the health care system to the brink and the prime minister there saying, i'm sorry, but unfortunately, more people will lose their lives. we have many more weeks ahead and that death toll, rosemary, it will only climb. >> it's devastating. we'll see some reporting later in the show, from you, salma, where you take us in a uk-aged care home where residents are awaiting that vaccine. for now, salma abdelaziz, many thanks, joining us live from london. the british prime minister said he expects and hopes that vaccine contracts from the eu will be honored.
1:34 am
the european union is calling out astrazeneca and pfizer with delivery delays. cyril venier is live in paris. he joins us more from paris. what's the latest on the rising vaccine supplies? >> reporter: well, rosemary, we're waiting for round three of discussions between the eu and vaccine maker astrazeneca today. the first few rounds not fruitful with the eu furious with astrazeneca in substantially delays in delivering the vaccine to the european union. that vaccine expected to be approved by the european medical agency later this week. and countries facing a third wave of coronavirus were hoping to hit the ground running with scheduled delivers but not going to happen as astrazeneca announced two days ago. it's two months behind schedule, as far as european deliveries are concerned. and the gulling things from that
1:35 am
perspective is that the same vaccinemaker is delivering lots of doses to the ekuk on the oth side of the channel. the reason being, the uk entered into the agreement before the eu which is what allows the uk to vaccinate 500,000 people in a day, we found out yesterday. europe would like to get some of that, rosemary. >> what can you tell us about an unusual deal and producing vaccines? >> unusual, indeed, this is coming from the french pharmaceutical giant, as you know, san ofi.
1:36 am
they didn't expect to put a vaccine until the end of 2021. that puts them way behind pfizer, pfizer biontech and moderna already distributing around the world. what sanofi has agreed to do entering an into an agreement with pfizer to help bottle their vaccine. sanofi believes that thanks to work coming out of you its frankfurt production plant, they will be able to bottle up to 125 million doses of the pfizer biontech vaccine this summer helping to roll it out across the european union. m meanwhile, the they're working on their own vaccines which the ceo said may be better against variants. we'll take that with a pinch of salt. they're not there yet, rosemary. >> we'll keep an eye on that,

this was the aftermath of a tornado that ripped through the u.s. state of alabama late monday. the storm killed at least one person and injured dozens more as it tore homes apart in the town of fultondale. emergency teams have been searching through a collapsed hotel for any survivors, even though most of its primary buildings were cleared. president biden is expected to sign more executive actions to combat the climate crisis in the coming hours. he's already signed several executive orders including rejoining the paris climate accord. a source says one of the
1:41 am
additional measures includes extending his moratorium on new oil and gas leases on federal land. meanwhile, the country's new climate enjoy says the nation is ready to reclaim a leading role in the global effort to tackle climate change. >> three years ago, scientists gave us a pretty stark warning, they said we have 12 years within which to avoid the worst consequences of climate change. now, we have nine years left, and i regret that my country has been absent for three of those years. so, we're proud to be back. we come back, i want you to know with humility for the absence of the last four years. and we'll do everything in our power to make up for it. >> and for more, cnn's john defterios joins me live from abu dhabi. good to see you. john kerry will take to the world economic stage later today. what can we expect? >> well, you know, rosemary, i
1:42 am
think there's a big huge sigh of relief coming from europe having john kerry as the special enjoy and what we're seeing from the biden administration. these is being dubbed climate day in the united states. i would expect at a minimum the moratorium to be announced in the oil and gas fields both on federal waters and united states at the same time. a complete u-turn from the donald trump policy of 13 million barrels a day, this time last year, it's dropped because of the pandemic. what have we announced from the biden administration, net zero that aligns nicely with the european union. having 100% energy on the grid by 2025, electrical grid in the united states, that's extremely ambitious. 4 million building being rekited as well because that's where the emissions are. and then we heard from angela merkel talking about how they
1:43 am
used the pandemic for the green rick recovery. in germany the largest economy in europe and the european union. let's take a listen to her. >> we had said, our european goal, our national goal from co2 emissions from 40% to 55% is something that we want to aim at for 2030. we have committed ourselves for 2050 to climate neutrality which may well lead to a situation that europe, once we have achieved that is the first climate neutral continental. >> angela merkel at her 15th appearance at the world economic forum. this one, she didn't limit her promise to climate change. she was saying if you want to be a multilateral player like china was suggesting the day by xi jinping, we need greater transparency. the origins in china, very bold
1:44 am
to say and also the world health organization and its information policy going forward, we need to learn something. rosemary. >> most definitely. john defterios, many thanks. well, janet yellen is now officially the first female u.s. treasury secretary after being sworn in yesterday. vice president kamala harris administered the ceremonial oath of office to yellen on the side of the white house, facing the treasury department. yellen shares the council of economic advisers under former president bill clinton. she was also the chair of the federal reserve. well, the u.s. republican party is the at a cross roads. while some look to the future, others cannot accept the party's losses in 2020. in some states, the part is causing party members to leave by the thousands. cnn's kyung lah has the report. >> reporter: this is the storming of a capitol you may not have seen.
1:45 am
rioters breached the oregon state capitol and assaulted police. less than a month before this. the insurrection in washington, d.c. as former president donald trump faces a second impeachment trial, charged for his role in inciting the deadly d.c. riot. >> it was a sham impeachment, just like the first one. >> reporter: the oregon republican party defiantly defends trump. >> patriots are not going away. the president is not going away. >> reporter: ten house republicans who voted to impeach trump, calling it a betrayal. then dive into this conspiratorial lie about the insurrection, that there is growing evidence that the violence at the capitol was a false flag operation designed to discredit president trump. >> this is a time for choosing. but it's a time for choosing what you really believe and what you want to stand for and not

just giving lip service for being a republican. >> reporter: that's not helping to win over more republicans says oregon representative state department david brock smith. >> extremism on either side only benefits a small minority. and it's not the majority of the constituents that we represent. >> reporter: choosing to side with the nra right fringe or not that's the battle at the state level. in texas, using the slogan "we are the storm," the same slogan used by the qanon conspiracy. in hawaii, a top official resigned from his post after he posted sympathy. later calling it an error in judgment. >> it will be the trump republican party. >> reporter: in arizona it's open warfare among republicans. these women believe the baseless
1:47 am
claims peddled by trump. >> this election was stolen. trump won by a landslide. i will be with him wherever he goes, however he goes. >> reporter: the state party shows no sign of moving away from trump. members re-elected a fervent trump follower as chairwoman. arizona republican party members don't seem to care. >> unification at what cost? okay. selling out america, i can't do that. >> reporter: there will be a price warn establishment republicans. >> it really is driving normal regular rationale people from the republican party and we can't afford to lose anymore. >> reporter: unless more than just a fear that the former senator is talking about there are real numbers behind this. the arizona secretary of state's office tells cnn 9,044
1:48 am
republicans, that's almost 10,000 have officially switched their party since the u.s. riots. they say that's not just a warning, that is a blaring siren that something is very wrong. do your best and stay positive, these words of wisdom have helped seniors at a uk care home through the darkest days of the pandemic. we'll have their stories when we return.
