11:00 pm
best of all, prop a won't raise your taxes. vote yes on prop a for fast, safe, reliable transit. welcome to our viewers in united states and around the world. joe biden begins his first official trip to asia over potential north korean missile task during a visit. money talks and a 40 billion dollar u.s. aid package for ukraine says washington is in for the long haul.
11:01 pm
u.s. president, joe biden, is on his way to south korea on his first asia trip as president. he will also be visiting japan and meet with leaders of india and australia as well. the asia trip comes later in biden's presidency than he may have liked. he wants to affirm the importance of our indo-pacific alliances. kevin, we'll begin with you. joe biden has been focusing much on the war in ukraine. this an attempt that they can walk and talk and chew gum at the same time. >> it's meant to reaffirm the u.s. commitment to the key alliance in east asia with south korea and japan and demonstrate that president biden still has
11:02 pm
this focus on asia despite all of the time and attention he's been spending on the war in ukraine. you saw that play out in the near term when the president in the morning he met with the leaders in finland and sweden. they are trying to join nato and he pivoted and turned to asia. te took flight and still on it now on his way to asia an it's really sort of demonstrative of his broader foreign policy even as the other foreign crisis have popped up around the world. the president really does want to spend a lot of time focusing on this continent both because of the security concerns that exist here in north korea stepping up their prove ocation but also this attempt to counter china. china is sort of ratcheting up tensions in taiwan. all of these areas of concern for allies in this region and the president wants to show that the united states is committed to its alliances so you'll see
11:03 pm
that when the president touches down here. he'll first go do a samsung plant. microchips that are essential to machines in the united states like cars. there's been a shortage of those because some chinese plants are shut down because of covid. the president really wants to sort of show that the united states supply chain can exist outside of china. he'll talk about other allies producing those micro chips and producing them in the united states. it's the economic message that the president is bringing here but security concerns are also looming. u.s. officials say that north korea could be preparing for an underground nuclear test or long range ballistic missile test. that would demonstrate the urgent concerns that are posed by north korea while the president is here on the peninsula. u.s. officials say they are prepared for that but it would
11:04 pm
underscore why the u.s. commitment to this area is so critical. japan and south korea both looking for deterrent steps from the united states. that will come up in the president's talking while he is here. john. >> thank you. let's go to our correspondent. the question is here do they both stand when it comes to north korea? >> it does appear to be a fair bit of common ground . the new president of south korea has a different policy than his predecessor who really put everything on engagement and pushing for better ties with north korea. this is a man that doesn't have much political experience. he was a former prosecutor. we really are learning as he goes along as what his policy
11:05 pm
will be. he has said that he is willing to engage with north korea but also had a more hawkish stance when it comes to north korea. a similar situation from washington really. we heard from the white house that they have reached out to north korea. they are willing to talk to them, to engage, to negotiate. there's been nothing in return. what we could really expect from the two leaders is that north korea will be very high up on the agenda not just because the u.s. and also south korean officials have pointed out they think an icbm test may be imminent. also the fact that north korea has admitted to having a covid outbreak within the country. we don't know how serious it is. the indications that we are getting suggest that with an you can e unvaccinated population with a fragile best health care system shows it is a very serious situation.
11:06 pm
we know that the president has offered aid to north korea. he's offered mass vaccines and testing kits. certainly the white house has said they are willing to help out as well. it does appear there are many similarities in the way that the u.s. and south korean lead ers would like to deal with north korea. it's having it high up on the agenda if they decide to carry out a provocation. it will over shadow everything else. john. >> thank you. appreciate that. to new york now. a former cia analyst who surge in the obama administrations and the director of the asia program at the wilson center. thank you for being with us. >> thanks for having me on.
11:07 pm
>> we'll get to the diplomacy in a minute but north korea may be getting ready to fuel a ballistic missile. one of the key final stages in preparing for a test launch familiar with latest information. in the past it was always speculation that north korea might conduct while a sitting u.s. president was in the region. they never thought it through on that. will this time be different and will that shape u.s. policy toward pyongyang in major way? >> north korea has a history of testing and conducting provocations around the south korean. it's different with the u.s. president being in the region
11:08 pm
but at this pioint in time, external situation is good for north korea. i say this because what would be retaliation from the in international community? there wouldn't be one. because china, russia is not going to come on board for additional sanctions and the u.s. is not going to do much of -- there's not going to be a lethal action or any kind of a series consequence for the regime. i think they could conduct a major provocation like an icbm. >> wait and see. i guess that's the only thing question do at this point. it seems this presidential trip is all about demonstrating the ability of being able to walk and chew gum at the same time.
11:09 pm
michael j. green who has your old job tells cnn there's nervousness about whether the u.s. can handle two major contingencies. can we handle ukraine, taiwan? an incoming president promises a pivot to asia or something handles in the middle east. how does this complicate this asia trip for biden and does the u.s. have the band width for two issues at once? >> the biden administration says it can handle multiple crisis. it can chew and walk or walk and chew gum at the same time. the reality is there's so many policy meetings that one could have. when you have major crisis, the reality is that you are short shorthanded. you are distracted and have limited bandwidth. it's not going to be that much
11:10 pm
of a high priority. it's one that doesn't really have an answer, we have been working on this problem for last several decades. i think the biden administration will be distracted and the priority is not just going to be there. it's not going to be on north ko korea. focus would seem to be on china and fry to counter china ease influence and bring india into the ukraine tent. try to get india on board. >> repair the relationship that's really soured over the last several years. it's really alliance building, getting all the allies on board and counter china. it will be the main priority with the biden administration in asia. >> one thing that biden has
11:11 pm
proven over the course of the last 16 month s he does have this ability to go and mend fences, to rebuild coalition, reengage allies that may be left behind during the trump administration. that is a skill which he will need, i guess, when she -- he is in asia and appreciated in the asian countries. it's uelsewhere around the worl in some ways. >> during the trump admini administration, the alliance relationship suffered. president trump demanded that our allies in asia pay up for increase and hosting and having our troops in the reregion. president trump demanded 500 time increase on south koreans footing the bill of u.s. forces being in korea.
11:12 pm
there was some strain. i think with president biden he is going focus on repairing that relationship, on building and expending on existing alliance. we're seeing biden's first meeting with south korean president, they are kind of folksy and have certain background as more low key. maybe they also have a good chemistry. they are also more aligned in some ways. they could see eye to eye on these issues. hopefully president biden will have a good trip and come back with alliances even stronger with south ykorea and japan. >> we'll see. thank you for being with us. >> thank you. the biggest and by no measure, not the last aid package, has been overwhelmingly approved by congress. on thursday the 40 billion dollar aid package of both
11:13 pm
military and human tear area assistance passed senate but not without opposition. 11 republicans voted against the bill in defiance of senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. >> anyone concerned about the cost of supporting a ukrainian victory should consider the much larger cost should ukraine lose. >> president biden is expected do sign the bill into law once he arrives in south korea. just as the senate approved that 40 billion dollar -- wait, there's more. the biden administration announcing another security package worth $100 million. ukraine top military commander claims his troops have broken the russian sieges at kharkiv and says ukrainian forces are pos pressing on. russian shelling and air strikes killed a dozen people on

thursday. a russian shadvance have pushed back and are suffering losses. kharkiv came under heavy russian shell, thousands headed to the subway and many have stayed. ukrainian fighters have forced the russian to pull back. it's time the leave the under ground, restart rail services. >> reporter: the noises may be further away from kharkiv in distant fields or villages. the part of the city still stays hidden, under ground in the subways near dark.

in the u.s. congress there's usually nothing suspicious about a congressman giving a tour but when it takes place the day before people stormed the capitol, that raises questions which the january 6 committee wants answered. >> reporter: the january 6 select committee once again has in its sight a republican member of congress looking for more information that they believe is a key part of their investigation. this time it's congressman barry of georgia. they want know more about a tour that was given on january 5th,
11:22 pm
be day before the insurrection at the capitol. this tracks back to an accusation made by congresswoman cheryl in the days after january 6 where she alleged she saw members of congress, republican members of congress giving tours of the capitol and described the tours as reconnaissance tours. now cheryl has never provided any evidence to back up the claim. republicans have been very critical of her calling them out. for first time he's being identified as someone who potentially may have been given one of those tours. he pushed back on this accu accusation. he said as a constituent family with young children meeting with their member of congress in the house office building is not a suspicious group or a reconnaissance tour. the family never entered the capitol building. the select committee is pushing a false narrative that republicans conducted reconnaissance tours on january 5th. republicans are now asking for
11:23 pm
the capitol police to release the video in question here. it's something that republicans asked several weeks ago as well. capitol police say they do not have the authorization to do so. it's clear this video is in the possession of the january 6 select committee. the question is, do they make it part of their public hearings and will they provide more evidence to suggest there may have been something questionable about this tour and it's not as incident as loudermilk claims it to be. there's many unanswered questions but it has become another important part of the committee's investigation. ryan nobles, cnn on capitol hill. pennsylvania officials have been counting ballots all day but the race remains too close to call. right now the trump endorsed tv personality mamoth oz has a slim lead over david mccormick.
11:24 pm
lawmakers in the u.s. state of oklahoma have just passed one of country's strictest abortion bills, banning all abortions after fertilization. >> the way the bill describes a pregnancy is key. i want to read the exact wording of that bill which stays a pregnancy is a condition that begins with fertilization. b, occurs when the woman is carrying the developing human offspring and c is calculated from the first day of the woman's last menstrual period. now, not only does this ban all abortions in the state of oklahoma but it also allows any private citizen to sue an abortion provider who knowingly
11:25 pm
performs or induces an abortion. we know the governor previously has supported all of these similar bans passed many state of oklahoma. he says his state protects life. they will focus on helping the mothers and says that churches a and nonprofits should focus on adoptions. we expect this to be the reality in oklahoma in the coming days. on the other hand, you have planned parenthood who is saying this is a dark day. they say this not just another ban but this is a first. they say it's a reversal of history. they say they are going to continue fighting just as they fought for previous efforts and legislation that has been passed in oklahoma in hopes of banning abortion. the other thing is they future.
11:26 pm
they expect the abortions planned for this week to go on as scheduled but they are making plans to cancel the abortions scheduled for next week. this is likely going to become an issue that is defined by state lines. cn nrk cnn, los angeles. among the usual issues of cost of living. there's the china factor. more on that when we come back. because you've got the next generation in global secure networking from comcast business, with fully integratedd security solutions all in o one place. so you're covered. on-premise and in the cloud. you cacan run things the way you want—your team, ours or a a mix of both. with the nation's largest ip network. from the most innovative company. bring on today with unbeatable business solutions from comcast business. powering possibilities™.

11:50 pm
she with show her face on air. the morning editorial meeting starts with worried discussion about mandatory masking. the station director said he'd even consider just shutting down and leaving. but then he thought female staff who want to carry on anchoring with a mask can, while those who don't will l get other jobs behind the scenes. >> we will leave the last decision up to them. they will make their own decision. >> reporter: and it's a tough decision for these women, who brave the new taliban regime to stay on the air, who already adjusted their head scarves to hide their hair and now fear a steep slide back to the middle ages. she says she is so stressed she couldn't even present her program properly. >> translator: it's not clear. even if we appear with the burqa, maybe they will say women's voices are forbidden. they want women to be removed from the screen. they are afraid of an educated woman.

11:52 pm
mandatory. women will only be wearing masks and they will continue their work. he seems to say if women wear this, they can go to work. but the dress code edicts like saying female university women's must wear black, not colored head scarves is an escalating war of nerves, and everyone fears where this will leave. back at tolo news, these female anchors are distraught. "what should we do? we don't know. we were ready to fight to the last to perform our work, but they don't allow us."

journalism, tolo news is afghanistan's leading independent news channel. but the director sapai says they'll all quit the day the taliban pressures them to tailor their coverage or lie to a public that's come to trust the truth they've been delivering over 20 years. he saved the station so far, recruiting a whole new staff after most employees fled the taliban's arrival. >> and from management level, i've stood alone. i was only thinking how to keep the screen alive, not to go dark. >> reporter: challenge now is keeping it from going dark. christiane amanpour, cnn, kabul, afghanistan. dozens of cases of monkeypox are being detected worldwide. infections have now been recorded in europe, the united states, the united kingdom, australia, canada. symptoms include fever, rash,
11:54 pm
