2:00 am
welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. president joe biden soon getting a first look at the trauma from the world's latest school shooting. plus international leaders press for an end to the blockade on ukrainian grain exports. and we'll look at how ukrainian businesses are reopening amid the devastation of war.
2:01 am
and we do begin in uvalde, texas, a community still very much in mourning beset by grief after a massacre that left 19 students and two teachers dead. you see them there, a long line of mourners laying flowers at a memorial set up outside robb elementary school. outrage is growing over why a group of law enforcement officers waited so long to rush the gunman. >> we have seen a mix of emotions, anger, frustration and disappointment after that 911 call timeline became more clear.
2:02 am
but folks have wrapped their arms around the folks of uvalde and its community. i've seen long lines like that for folks waiting to purchase concert tickets or receive free food or other items. but these people are not waiting in line in the oppressive heat to get something, they're here to give and show their support. many have traveled from fear and beyond. i talked to a person from el paso. some people traveled from san antonio, which is about 85 miles away to lay flowers, balloons and stuffed animals on the lawn of robb elementary school. parents we spoke to are stunned. they were shocked after they learned more than 80 minutes passed between the time the initial 911 call came in and when the shoot eser was killed. >> they were not concerned about
2:03 am
the real trauma happening inside. honestly, i think they did. they waited too long. it's sad that a lot of parents witnessed it. and to see that they're saying that they got in here quick and handled business, that is not the way that happened. >> had they got in there sooner and somebody would have taken immediate action we might have more of those children here today, including my daughter. >> reporter: so not only are parents upset, but this entire community is upset and of course grieving. on saturday family members and friend the of one of the victims showed up here to the school, and as they walked away from this overwhelming memorial, one of the relatives kept saying, oh, my god, oh, my god. cnn, uvalde, texas. >> now in the coming hours, u.s. president joe biden and first lady jill biden will travel to
2:04 am
uvalde to do something they did just a few weeks ago, after the mass shooting in buffalo, new york. >> reporter: president biden is preparing to spend several hours on the ground in uvalde, texas to try to offer comfort to the grieving families dealing with the losses of two teachers and 19 young children. the president and first lady will depart sunday morning from their home in wilmington, delaware where the president is expected to meet with city leaders, religious leaders and the families that have lost loved ones. so often he has gone into communities to offer support in their grief. having lost his wife and young baby daughter in a car accident,
2:05 am
then additionally, his son later in life, beau biden who passed away from cancer. but ahead of this visit to uvalde, texas, president biden spoke at a commencement ceremony where he talked about his trip and issued a call to action for the next generation. >> tomorrow i'll be heading to uvalde, texas. as i speak, those parents are literally preparing to bury their children. in the united states of america, to bury their children. too much violence. too much fear. too much grief. now while this can feel like a very dark moment in america, i'm optimistic. i'm never more optimistic in my entire life.
2:06 am
here's why. i mean this, my word as a biden. i mean it. because of you! this generation! your generation. makes me more optimistic. >> reporter: one of the big questions now facing this white house is what more can be done to try to prevent tragedies like this from happening again. the president has said he wants to see stricter gun control, but says that there's not much more he can to on his own on the executive level. the white house has pushed for congress to take action. there is that bipartisan group of senators holding preliminary discussions about possible new gun safety laws, but it's unclear what kind of traction that might get. and there are some outside groups pressing for president biden himself to do more. but for now, that visit to uvalde, texas, on sunday, will give the president an opportunity to focus on offering solace, offering comfort to these grieving families who've
2:07 am
had their lives shattered. arlette saenz, the white house. >> earlier, i spoke with the head of the u.s. americas program. and i asked what americans are looking for as the president travels to texas. >> it's a very difficult trip for the president and first lady, but it's incredibly important to remember that as divided as the american public might be and the majority of americans are actually on the side of wanting more gun control, but there won't be any parents in america that won't grieve for these children. and so i think president biden really calling on the unity of all parents and that deep feeling that we all have for those families and that community. it will be the number one thing, but there will quickly be a desire, and there already s for the president to be able to do something, not only for the community but for the broader
2:08 am
question of gun violence, of school shootings which we know the numbers have spiked dramatically over the last year, and this is where, as we all know, it gets incredibly difficult. but the number one thing that the president has on his side is public opinion. and the importance here is whether the president can seize on this moment of national tragedy to really mobilize the majority of americans in a sustained way, and this is very difficult, of course, when you're facing that very targeted, very focussed lobby that is anti-gun regulation, led by the nra, and many very persistent and high-profile republicans in congress. >> and our thanks there from london. on friday, the
2:09 am
administration paid tribute in buffalo. that was just two weeks ago that a gunman opened fire. the vice president attended the funeral of ruth whitfield, the eldest person killed in the shooting. before she left buffalo, harris called for a ban on assault weapons. >> we know what works on this. it includes let's having an assault weapons ban. you know what an assault weapon is? you know how an assault weapon was designed? it was designed for a specific purpose. to kill a lot of human beings quickly. an assault weapon is a weapon of war, with no place, no place in a civil society. >> now historically, national gun reform has been an uphill battle due to congressional gridlock. but as cnn reports, there may be
2:10 am
some movement to compromise and negotiate with both parties. >> senator joe manchin, a moderate democrat from west virginia, who is participating in these bipartisan talks put it in his own words. he described this meeting on thursday with reporters as very encouraging and noted that the atmosphere feels different than it did in the days after the sandy hook elementary shooting. he said it's encouraging to see and show people that there could be a path forward. now this comes after of course senate minority leader mitch mcconnell, the top republican in the senate gave his blessing to john cornyn, the senior senator from texas where this shooting took place in uvalde, to start negotiating with democrats on some sort of legislation that could combat such a shooting in the future.
2:11 am
this is incredibley remarkable and notable. some republicans are meeting with democrats, a handful of them, are meeting to figure something out. and chuck schumer emphasized that he wanted to give time to democrats to negotiate something with republicans so they could pass some sort of gun safety reform because of that 60-vote threshold in the senate that is needed to break the filibuster to advance any legislation. and that is the problem right now is that democrats, all 50 democrats, even if they were to sign on to any legislation to pass gun safety bills, they need at least ten republicans to sign on. and right now that is just not the case. there are not even ten republicans negotiating with the democrats right now. and i really want to emphasize this contrast in the republican party between the handful of members participating in these bipartisan talks. senator john cornyn of texas. compared to senator ted cruz of
2:12 am
texas who actually spoke at the nra convention yesterday and blamed anything but guns for what happened in uvalde. take a listen to what he said. >> ultimately, pas we all know, what stops armed bad guys is armed good guys. we must not react to evil and tragedy by abandoning the constitution or infringing on the rights of our law-abiding citizens. >> you know, his words really sum up the way some republicans, if not probably the majority of republicans, are feeling about gun safety reform at this time. they do not think that gun safety reform is the answer to try to fix horrific mass shootings from taking place in the future, despite it being a trend in the united states. and so it's going to be a very uphill climb for democrats to be
2:13 am
able to get ten republicans on board, but that's not going to stop them from continuing to try to negotiate with republicans. >> that was our our danelle diaz from washington. now millions are desperate for food due to the war in ukraine. plus we'll introduce you to incredibly resilient ukrainian business owners opening their doors while the war wages on. we recognize that energy demand is growing,, and the world needs lower carbon solutions to keep up. at chevron, we're working to find new ways forward, through investments and partnerships in innovative solutions. like renewable natural gas from cow waste, hydrogen-fueled transportation, and carbon capture. we may not know just what lies ahead, but it's only human... to search for it.
2:14 am
2:15 am
2:16 am
bipolar depression. it made me feel trapped in a fog. this is art inspired by real stories of bipolar depression. i just couldn't find my way out of it. the lows of bipolar depression can take you to a dark place. latuda could make a real difference in your symptoms. latuda was proven to significantly reduce bipolar depression symptoms and in clinical studies, had no substantial impact on weight. this is where i want to be. call your doctor about sudden behavior changes or suicidal thoughts. antidepressants can increase these in children and young adults. elderly dementia patients have increased risk of death or stroke.
2:17 am
report fever, confusion, stiff or uncontrollable muscle movements, which may be life threatening or permanent. these aren't all the serious side effects. now i'm back where i belong. ask your doctor if latuda is right for you. pay as little as zero dollars for your first prescription. ukraine's military says some of the most intense fighting of the war is taking place this hour in the eastern donbas region. according to ukrainian officials, the russians have stepped up attacks in and around donetsk and quote, the enemy keeps assaulting. a young girl was among two people reported killed by russian shelling of a high rise building on saturday. in kharkiv, reuters report an apparent missile strike on a
2:18 am
solar facility. it's believed two missiles were launched from russian territory causing extensive damage. russian state media says a transp transport ship has arrived in mariupol to carry metal to russia. now as russia makes incremental gains, the kremlin is coming under pressure to negotiate with ukraine. vladimir putin was pressed by french and german leaders who spoke with him saturday. ukraine is one of the world's top wheat exporters, and they urged putin to lift the blockade on the port of yoeodesa.
2:19 am
they say tens of millions will face food shortages if they are not lifted. how serious might vladimir putin be about negotiating an end to the blockade? he's already suggested he wants something in return, which is a loosening of sanctions which would appear to be a nonstarter. >> well, look, president putin and the kremlin in general has repeatedly used this as a bargaining chip. we've heard over the weekend obviously, president macron speaking to putin on saturday. they've pushed for negotiation anegotiations. food security is a key point of
2:20 am
contention. moscow wants something in return for that as well. they are using this as a bargaining chip. we've had repeated calls from european leaders, from nato leaders, calling on president putin to ease that blockade, to allow the grain exports to leave ukraine. president putin has expressed that moscow could potentially look at a way to ease these exports to allow for that to happen. but what we've heard from the kremlin spokesperson, dmitry peskov, is that they want to see these sanctions ease. they say these are politically-motivated restrictions and that these need to be reversed in order for these, for this block aid, to go to the areas that are so dependent on ukraine's exports. russia has been accused of
2:21 am
weaponizing ukraine's grain supplies, and that has been repeatedly echoed by volodymyr zelenskyy. take a listen. >> translator: terror on earth in ukraine, terror in the energy market, not just our country. terror in the food market and on a global scale. >> now he uses the word terror. this is a significant crisis. the international community is deeply concerned about. as you mentioned earlier some 22 million tons of grain is expected to be blocked from the black saea. and we've heard repeated warnings from the u.n., from the world food program that we could soon be seeing famine in parts of the middle east and africa that have become so highly dependent on exports. we've heard that repeatedly from david beesly, the chief of the
2:22 am
world food program. this is expected to be a key focus tomorrow and on tuesday at the european summit. we know the chairman of the african union has been invited to this summitle over the fact that africa could be deeply impacted by this crisis. >> thank you. ukraine's president is now suggesting the war in ukraine will continue until all russian troops are out of ukrainian territory. in his nightly address saturday he left little room for compromise. >> translator: ukraine will take everything back from russia. this is a yes, ma'an imperative. it's every day at this same time. everything we to is for this. >> earlier, i spoke with a professor at tufts university and asked if russia and ukraine
2:23 am
are just posturing and will determine a cease-fire is in their best interest. >> i don't think from the ukrainian stand point it is posturing. for ukraine it is existential fight for survival. putin sees them as illegitimate. so there is no compromise whereby ukraine can exist as a sovereign state and russia will be satisfied. that's why when president zelenskyy says that he does see that the territory needs to be back in ukraine. millions of people have been subjected to brutal occupation. and another thing, i think it's not posturing because nobody in ukraine believes that putin will be satisfied and ukraine will be safe even if some territory is
2:24 am
ceded. it's just a matter of time before they regroup. because as long as ukraine exists as a sovereignle s state goes against what putin thinks. >> how much more difficult have the immigrations of war crimes, the atrocities in ukraine have made this? >> i think they made it much more difficult, because again, exactly the kind of war crimes we have read about, what happened in bucha, but this is happening outside in much of the territory that's occupied currently. there are people tortured. activists, schoolteachers. i think it's a wrong perception among some of us -- eastern part
2:25 am
of ukraine has been historically russian. but that's no longer the case. i think what ukraine would like to see to see justice for the perpetrators of these crimes. >> she does not expect any russian leaders will stand trials as long as vladimir putin is in power. the war rages on. we're seeing how resilient so many ukrainians are. we show you how two businesses are picking up the pieces and starting over. >> reporter: a rare missile attack in ukraine's western city of lviv. in april, three russian missiles hit military infrastructure. a fourth hit this family-owned car repair shop nearby.
2:26 am
pastrnak is helping her family put the business back together. >> translator: this building isn't repairable. >> reporter: this building where the missile hit was the office where four employees were killed. >> translator: three of them worked here for around ten years. one was my age. he was supposed to celebrate his 27th birthday soon. >> reporter: along with grief and sadness the employees felt the urgency to reopen, to help support the loved ones of those who died. >> translator: guys just put on their uniforms, came to work to clear the rubble. >> reporter: volunteers pitched in to make the repairs go faster. >> we need to help from our heart, because we are all brothers. >> reporter: it touches your heart. >> yes, comes from our heart. >> reporter: just a month after the strike, the auto business is back in business. >> translator: we need to stand
2:27 am
up and move on, no matter how much pain and suffering. >> reporter: in lviv's city center, a chef is about to open a new restaurant. >> translator: i love cooking. i love bringing joy to people. >> reporter: three months ago, dimitri had to abandon his sushi restaurant in mariupol and flee with his wife and two little bo boys as russian forces invaded. >> we heard the huge explosion, and we were very afraid. we packed up and started to leave. >> reporter: this is the second time he's had to pack up his life and start again. he opened his very first restaurant in donetsk when russia invaded ukraine in 2014. >> translator: everybody was bombed there. nothing was left. neither from the first or second restaurant. i was just thinking about how to get out, to get our children out. we didn't have plans to open up another restaurant.
2:28 am
>> reporter: but with financial support from friends, he's opening blue fin again. now even bigger. >> translator: we want to help our country financially, to create a small business. >> reporter: what is it inside of you that keeps you going like this? >> translator: we are ukrainians, period. it speaks for itself. it's our willpower. >> reporter: willpower that is essential to driving an econo economically strong, independentle ukraine. suzanne malveaux, cnn, lviv. >> russian's war in ukraine has impacted european football. st. petersburg was originally chosen to host the final, but it was moved to paris after the invasion in february. clashes outside the stadium marred the match. police fought with fans who were trying to get in with fake
2:29 am
tickets. people with legitimate tickets were stuck in line. listen to this liverpool fan's account. >> it got really, really tight. there were kids, old people. it was crushing. i said you need to get information to people. there was no interest. they understood, they were trying their best. but they had no information. no ability to communicate with the crowd. when we finally got in, which was through barriers, it was absolutely rammed. we then have spent the next hour and a half, two hours, with no information. all the gates being closed. nobody still has a clue what's going on. i've been tear gas bombed. >> now real madrid, back to the game, right? beat liverpool 1-0. the only goal of the match was
2:30 am
scored when the goalkeeper held them to a shutout. u.s. democrats are facing opposition from republicans over new gun control laws after the mass shooting in texas. coming up, an er doctor talks about the middle ground and what those solutions look like for better safety and fewer deaths. plus israeli nationalist groups are set to march through jerusalem in the coming hours, and there are concerns it could lead to the last thing that city needs right now. more violence.
2:31 am
2:32 am
2:33 am
welcome back to our viewers in the united states and all around the world.
2:34 am
i'm paula newton, and this is "cnn newsroom." president biden will travel to uvalde, texas in the coming hours to console a grieving community. the shooting at robb elementary school left 19 students dead and two teachers, but there's growing outrage about why law enforcement officers waited so long to rush the building. earlier, cnn spoke with state senator gutierrez who represents uvalde. here's his message for those who are angry and questioning the police response. >> yeah, we're all angry. law enforcement's angry. i had a long conversation this morning on the way in with steve mcgraw, and he was crying to me and i'm crying to him. and everybody is frustrated about the failures of what happened. he has assured me that i will
2:35 am
have a detailed report, including ballistics by next week. i want to know when each agency was here. moving forward. never, he assured me that never again will dps stand down for any law enforcement agency. i hope that that's true. >> that is in fact him talking about mr. mcgraw, who is the head of the public security department in texas. guns are now the leading cause of death for children in the united states. they've eclipsed, in fact, auto accidents, which were the leading cause of death for more than 60 years. for 2020, the most recent year with complete records, the centers for disease control reports that more than 45,000 children were killed in firearm-related incidents. mass shootings are appalling, but they really only claim a fraction of the total victims. children die every day from guns
2:36 am
in the united states. joining me now is dr. meagan rainy, an emergency physician and academic dean of public health at brown university in rhode island. and i want to thank you for being here on what have been some really tough days. you argue quite persuasively that gun reform needs to be treated as a public health crisis. there's no better or demoralizing statistic to prove your point. firearms became the leading cause of debtath in the united states for kids 1 through 19. describe as a physician the scope of this public health crisis as you see now. >> this is not a new problem, paula. we have been seeing the number of firearm jinjuries and deaths rise year upon year for over a
2:37 am
decade now. many of us in medicine and public health have been trying to call attention to it. we saw that firearms became the second leading cause of death for kids. now it's the first leading cause of death. day after day in emergency departments across the country, we take care of these victims of firearm injury, and we keep asking, when does this become enough? for us as a nation to care? for us to be ready to apply those same public health tools that we apply to any other epidemic. to this problem that is literally killing our kids. >> yeah, and, again, you just said it. trauma that you see in your emergency rooms on children. and the victims of gun violence. now you say there can be a third way. and this is what we want to get into, and what's most intriguing here is that you say it's going to get us away from this futile stalemate, right? what does it entail, the way you see it? >> so the way that i and many
2:38 am
others want to approach firearm injury and have been trying to do, often with our own funds, with foundation money or a small amount of public funds appropriated for this issue is to deal with firearm injury the same way we deal with any other health problem. we start with getting data, figure out who's at irisk. we put interventions that work. that's what we did with covid. we figured out that masking works, that vebtslntilation wor. we haven't gotten rid of every covid death. we've made a lot of progress. same thing with car crashes. if you use science, you can make progress. certainly, policy is part of that progress, but policy alone is never sufficient. what also matters is getting vaccines in arms.
2:39 am
same thing for guns. we can make obviously policy changes that would make a huge difference, but while we are waiting, we can also do things on a community and individual level to help change the trajectory so we can stop people from having to come through the doors of my and others' ers for care. >> one of the things i found intriguing here, and this is hard. it sounds easy, but it's very hard. you're saying as health professionals you also lean into getting that expertise from people who are expert in firearms and trying to keep people safe. what does that look like in terms of the programs that you've been involved in? >> i'm going to give you a very concrete example, going back five years before parkland. i co-founded a non-profit called affirm at the aston institute. we've worked over the last five years to set up partnerships that help to develop and include
2:40 am
norms from the firearm-owning community around safe storage, around identifying people who are at risk of gun misuse. listen. 45% of americans are firearm owners. we have to make sure that firearm owners are part of the solution, or else whatever we do is not going to work. >> this is a tough question. you're on the front lines of this, but one thing everyone wants is to avoid the politicization. how is that done? have you had any success in doing that? >> to a certain extent there are people who are going to politicize any issue in this country right now. and you can't try to please everyone, but there are middle grounds, and actually, when you look at it, most americans want their kids to be safe when they go to school. most americans want to be safe when they go to the grocery store, to a church, to a yoga studio. and when you start from that point of view of we are trying to keep people safe, you
2:41 am
actually find a lot of areas of consensus. there's of course consensus around keeping hands out of the people who are perpetrators of domestic violence, out of people who are threatening to kill themselves or others. through things like red flag laws, and through other similar programs. that's one way. can you also form consensus by creating community programs, by exploring ways to advance those normative changes. we've had a lot of progress, but we only at the beginning. >> yeah, and a long way to go, and yet some really enlightening information there. and i'm hopeful that some of this will make it into a lot of the public health programs. thank you again. >> thank you. now if would you like to provide financial support or blood donations to victims and communities of mass shootings, including the texas school shooting go to cnn.com/impact.

tensions are running high after israeli troops killed a palestinian teenager in the west bank. angry crowds were chanting during his funeral on saturday, the day after the 14-year-old was killed. he's the second minor killed by israeli troops in recent days amid deadly violence that's been going on for weeks now. it happened at this spot, you see it there in bethlehem after troops opened fire on violent protesters. but the teen's family has a very different version of what happened. >> translator: the witnesses said that there weren't clashes and the army shot at him. though there were nothing going
2:46 am
on. he was sitting inside a garage at his friend's house. they shot him. they shot him with six bullets. >> now israeli officials say they are reviewing the incident. now this comes as jerusalem braces for violence over nationalist marches expected to get under way a few hours from now. israeli right wing groups are set to march through the old part of the city to march the jerusalem day holiday. for more now we join atika shubert who is standing by near the area where the marchers are expected to pass. let us know what to expect in the coming hours. >> reporter: yeah, the march doesn't officially begin for a few hours now, but as can you see, a lot of groups are already coming through. this is an event that really draws a lot of young jewish nationalists here, and what's pl planned is a march where thousands and thousands will
2:47 am
come through here singing like you see here. what make it is contentious is that damascus gate is where many live. some see it as a celebration. for palestinians, they see it as a provocation. so there's a lot of tension going into their day. a lot of heated rhetoric. hamas for example and other palestinian groups have threatened to escalate violence if the march is not called off. last year rockets were fired and it resulted in several days of fighting in gaza. thousands of police have been deployed today to try to keep the tensions contained, to keep it from boiling over. that will be a very difficult task where scenes like this will only get bigger as the day continues. >> i know you'll stay on top of this. we'll continue to check in with
2:48 am
you. our atika shubert on the ground in jerusalem. iran is trying to show off a top secret drone base that's never been seen by the public. it shows dozens of drones and missiles in a secret underground base. they claim they are domestically produced, but tehran has a history of making dubious claims about advancements, including this. you'll see that alleged stealth fighter jet that was revealed nine years ago. multiple experts and bloggers said the plane was likely a mockup that couldn't even get off the ground. in the coming hours, millions of voters will head to the polls in the first round of colombia's presidential election. six candidates are vying to lead the country. the frontrunner is the left wing candidate. the right wing candidate, the
