tv CNN Newsroom Live CNN July 23, 2022 1:00am-2:00am PDT
live from cnn center, this is "cnn newsroom" with kim brunhuber. >> we begin with both new hope in ukraine and a new round of fighting. officials say 13 missiles struck a city about 300 kilometers north of mykolaiv, leaving a number of people injured and killed. the missiles targeted a military airfield and a railway facility. officials are urging people to stay in shelters for now while the mayor of mykolaiv is reporting what he called powerful blasts in that city as well. on the hopeful side, ukraine and russia have signed an agreement that will allow ukraine to resume grain exports through the black sea. much of that grain has been stranded buzz of a russian naval blockade leaving 47 million people around the world in state the u.s., britain and the eu all have welcomed the
agreement. president zelenskyy seems skeptical that russia will keep their word. here he is. >> translator: we trust the u.n. thousand it is their responsibility and responsibility of international partners to ensure compliance with the agreements. >> moeanwhile, the u.n. secretary-general is touting the agreement in his words as a beacon of hope. in an interview with cnn he said the deal will bring a much-needed relief to the global food market. here he is. >> i believe it is in the mutual interest of the parties, because this will be present an important solution for ukraine that has all the silos full and the throughnew harvest being de. the u.s. has already issued a
statement in relation to this, there are no sanctions on food and fertilizers, so russian food and fertilizers will also be able to be in access to the world markets. and these two combined operations will mean huge injection that i believe will bring prices down and stabilize the markets. >> walk us through theis deal. >> it is a break through. meeting after meeting, summit after summit. we've heard from other nato leaders around the food crisis, to get that grain out of ukraine, and now of course that
breakthrough deal will hopefully allow vessels carrying those grain exports to the parts of the world sdo desperately in ned of that grain. allowing vessels exporting that grain to travel through safe corridors, avoiding mines in the area with aerial supervision from the ukrainian armed forces in order to carry that grain through the safe corridors out tru through the black sea and turkish strait. they will be charged with overseeing inspections of these vessels to ensure that they are
carrying the goods that have been agreed upon in this deal, and namely as has been concerned by russia. they are not carrying weapons, and that will be key here. turkey already has some control over regulating the turkish straits as outlined agreed upon back in the 1930s. this had really extend turkish row vis provisions over that part of the sea. this will be crucial in exporting. there are millions dependent on these grain exports, particularly in the region in the middle east. president erdogan has taken this as a diplomatic win. he's long been seen as an outlier, choosing to maintain a channel of communication with president putin and supporting the iranian armed forces. that dialog has yielded some pretty significant results.
>> absolutely, as you say, for so many millions around the world. d thank you very much. as ukraine's grain gets to the market, the expectation is that it will help ease global food prices. that could be quite a while. and it's the poorest struggling the most with the skyrocketing prices. and we have more on how the crisis is leading to unrest. >> reporter: we have seen huge unrest in latin america. huge protests in countries like ecuador, panama, argentina. according to the world bank, by the end of 2021 we were already looking at an average median consumer n con consumer inflation number of 7%.
and also because of global supply chain issues from russia's invasion of ukraine. but another trend or factor this this tlaigs that we've seen in latin america and the caribbean is rising prices when it comes to food and fuel, especially in this part of the world. according to the world bank, about 40% of the average household consumption goes to costs related to food and fuel. when prices of those two things go up, it has an outsized impact. and even then according to the world bank, the people who are affected most by that kind of sflaigs are people who live in dense urban centers like where i am in mexico city. latin america is replete with major urban centers that have tens of millions of people, many who have lower income, and those are some of the most vulnerable people impacted even more by price hikes this food and fuel. to fix this problem, most experts agree it would take this the very short term massive
government spending. when you look around this region, government finances aren't in great shape, and there doesn't appear to be a situation that governments can actually meet the needs, the kind of spend the money that would needed to really ease the pain that so many ordinary people are feeling in places like ecuador, panama where there have been tax caps on fuel price. that hasn't been enough to quell the popular discontent that has people taking to the streets. as we look to the near term, later in the summer, into the fall, will there be more protests, more social unrest? as one expert told me, it's not a matter of if, but when. matt rivers, cnn, mexico city. it seems though one knno on knows what's happening at the largest nuclear plant in europe. the head of the international
atomic energy agency says it's alarmed by recent reports of a recent incident possibly with casualties. on thursday, the plant's operator said the russian military was hiding weapons and munitions inside the facility where they'd be safe from ukrainian artillery. why didn't donald trump stop his supporters from storming the u.s. capitol? former insiders testify about what they saw and heard during the crucial hours on january 6. we'll have those details just ahead. plus an update on president biden's health of a his covid crisis. you'll hear from his medical expert and top disexpert.

trump becoming irate. ten had no text messages on their phones, three had personal messages and one had saved a text conversation, but the meta data on the phones of others showed text activity that was now missing. even if there is an innocent explanation, committee members say the timing is suspicious because the secret service had already been instructed to save all records, listen to this. >> the committees in the house, homeland, oversight, judiciary, intelligence, wrote the secret service and ordered them to retain all the records. that was on january 16th. all of the records related to january 5th and 6th. and it was 11 days later that the text messages were erased. so that is very troubling. >> thursday's prime time hearing zeroed in on trump's behavior on
january 6, particularly the 187 minutes between hem telling his supporters to march on the capitol and fight like hell until he finally called them off more than three hours later. cnn has the details. >> reporter: president trump was sitting in the white house for more than three hours. watching tv as the deadly attack on the capitol unfolded. >> are you aware of any phone call by the president of the united states to the secretary of defense that day? >> not that i'm aware of, no. >> are you aware of any phone call by the president of the united states to the attorney general of the united states that day? >> no. >> are you aware of any phone call by the president of the united states to the secretary of homeland security that day? >> i'm not aware of that, thothno. >> reporter: trump rejecting pleas inte pleas from aides and family members to tell the rioters to
go home, instead, inflaming tensions with a tweet against mike pence. >> the tweet looked like the opposite of what we needed at that moment, which was a deescalation. >> it was essentially him giving the green light to these people. >> reporter: trump was on the phone with his attorney rudy giuliani to slow down the certification of joe biden's victory in a last-ditch attempt to stay in power. as trump went to the residence that night he did not express kearns about the attack. instead. >> he said only quote, mike pence let me down. >> reporter: with the committee revealing that trump's actions endangered pence's life. radio communications from the vp's secret service detail showing the chaos. >> we need to move now. >> if we lose anymore time, we may lose the ability to leave. so if we're going to leave, we
need to do it now. >> they've gained access to the second floor, and i've got public five feet from me down below. >> reporter: this testimony from someone kept anonymous for his own safety. >> the members of the vp group were fearing for their own lives. >> reporter: even the day after the attack, outtakes of trump's speech showing he refused to say the election was over. >> but this election is now over. congress has certified the results. i don't want to say the election's over. i just want to say congress has certified the results without saying the election's over, st okay? >> reporter: more public hearings in september, some members believe they have laid out a criminal case against the former president. >> i think the president certainly has criminal exposure. >> reporter: one of the things they will try to figure out in
august is what is the story behind those missing texts from january 5th and january 6 of 2021. the secret service claims there was some sort of phone migration that led to the loss of these texts. but the committee is determined to figure out the true story behind it. jamie raskin told me they're going to fill in a whole bunch of leads over august, gaps in the story line as well as the texts. and he said, quote, we're going to figure out this whole mystery with the secret service texts. last hour, i spoke about the january 6 investigation with that tasha lynnstead and asked her what we've learned from the hearings that we didn't already know >> we know the extent to which he was involved. that this was months and months and months of planning. that he knew that there was no fraud and that there was nothing that he do legally do, and he
knew that there was violence. that there was an attack on the capitol. and he just didn't really do anything about it. and in fact just sat back and was actually revelling in it. and we've actually seen public opinion change a little bit. i mean, several weeks ago when i had spoken to you, i didn't think that this would move anything much. but we've seen that there's been a 4% shift in that now we have 57% of the public that think that trump was at fault. and we have a little bit more of the public that thinks that this is a big threat to democracy. now it's very partisan in the way that it breaks down, but you have 86% of democrats that believe it's a big threat to democracy. 52% of independents, but only 12% of republicans. but it's still important, because we need to provide transparency about what takes please a prais place, and we need to apply the
pressure. and merrick garland did finally say something that though one is ab above the law. it will lead to more bad behavior upon future presidents. we see that it's these shifting norms that are really, really problematic for our democracy. >> the january 6 hearings continue to pick up steam with the american public. 17.7 million people tuned this thursday, to thursday night's hearings, measured across ten broadcast networks, slightly less than the 20 million who watched the first prime time hearing last month. that's worth noting the committee hired two experienced television executives to help present the sworn testimonies
and other evidence at each hearing. donald trump ally and former white house chief strategist, steve bannon says he'll appeal, and he's not afraid to go to jail after he was found guilty of contempt of congress. bannon was indicted last november after failing to comply with a subpoena from the january 6 committee. he was defiant after the verdict friday. here he s. >> is. >> we may have lost a battle. the prosecutor missed one very important phrase. i stand with trump and. constitution, and i will never back off that, ever. >> now bannon's testimony was sought because of his numerous contacts with trump and because of a pre-riot statement on his podcast that quote, all hell would break loose that day. cnn has more. >> reporter: steve bannon, that advisor to former president trump was convicted on friday by
a jury in federal court in washington, d.c., as they weighed whether bannon was in criminal contempt of congress for failing to appear for testimony or to turn over documents to the house select committee's january 6 investigation. after this verdict was delivered in court, the chair and the vice chair of the house select committee applauded it. they said that the conviction of steve bannon is a victory for the rule of law and important affirmation of the select committee's work. anyone who obstructs our investigation should face consequences. no one is above the law. so this is about punishing bannon today, not trying to get information out of him at this time. this was about a prosecution in dri criminal court. now bannon will be back in court in late october for his sentencing. his attorney says he wants to appeal. he was smirking as the verdict was read, after the prosecutors presented this case. the jury clearly agreeing with their si
their simple take on the matter. but after court he reiterated that he stands with donald trump still. cnn, washington. white house physician says president biden is improving but is also taking additional medication to treat his covid infection. the president tested positive for coronavirus on thursday. he's fully vaccinated, twice boosted and said to be experiencing mild symptoms. cnn spoke earlier with the president's chief medical advisor and top infectious disease expert, dr. anthony fauci. >> he's on paxlovid, and he has symptomology still, but it is improving. he had a bit of a mild temperature that responded very well to tylenol. but he's been able to perform functions today, and we fully expect, given the fact that he's vaccinated, he's doubly boosted. and he's on a very effective
anti-viral drug, paxlovid, that clearly has a very good track record in preventing people to progress to severe disease. and that's the reason why, although there's never any guarantee we feel quite optimistic that the president is already on his way to recovery. >> and covid cases are rising around the world, driven by the ba.5 variant. on thursday, china reported more than a thousand new cases and nearly a thousand the day before. and here in the u.s., cases are at the highest and rising fastest in the south, according to johns hopkins university. also ticking up in the midwest and northeast. and new zealand is coping with its own wave of infections driven by ba.5. during july the country's seen some of the highest death tolls and warning that the new wave of infections could put its health system under considerable pressure. deadly high temperatures are sending people in europe and the u.s. scrambling to stay cool. coming up, how the
record-breaking heat waves are causing wildfires and the dangerous toll this is taking on people's health. and as the u.s. braces for record temperatures this weekend another fire has broken out near yosemite park in california. we'll have the details. stay w with us. you sound... tired. oh, thananks. what? when did i- morning! oh, great. there's two of them. good days start with good nights. so i would ask your doctor about both. calling doctor johannes. no, please, i can do that. all right?

welcome back to all of you watching us here in the united states, canada and all around the world. i'm kim brunhuber, this is "cnn newsroom." scorching heat and humidity are expected to continue through the end of the month in many parts of the united states. take a look at these heat alerts. as much as 85% of the population
could see temperatures above 90 degrees fahrenheit over the next week, over 270 million people. on sunday the combination of heat and humidity could go over 105 degrees in parts of the northeast and mid atlantic. now the oak fire started at about 2:00 p.m. local time and has scorched over 4,000 acres. with much of whereinestern euro sweltering in record breaking heat. nearly 50,000 acres have burned in spain just this week. crews have fought fires in slovenia and greece as well. and those temperatures soar and people are looking for ways to beat the heat across europe where air conditioning is quite uncommon. dozens of cities are under extreme heat alerts. with many city at almost 100
degrees fahrenheit. we are in rome where the temperature section pekted to reach 36 degrees. but we begin with derrek van da. >> emergency that we are all collectively facing. we live in an era that since the industrial era began that this extreme heat is becoming more frequent. we've seen that shift in the climate across the planet. currently, this is right now. this is not a future problem. this is a now problem. we have excessive heat warnings in place across much of the eastern seaboard, including some of the most-populated areas of the u.s. as you step outside, it will feel like today near 105
degrees. nearly 80 million americans under these alerts. here's an example of new york city. five days in a row we've had temperatures above 32 degrees celsius, 90 degrees fafrn height, we add one more day and tie a six-day heat record set in 2013. looks like we will maintain those temperatures through the better part of the weekend. it's not just across north america but across the big pond. the atlantic ocean. this is a picture coming out of milan, italy. they're battling their own heat wave. and the temperatures are hot subsiding much. look at the iberian peninsula where fires continue to rage out of control. temperatures will flirt with 45 degrees through the end of the weekend and early parts of next week. check out the temperature trends. you can see the red and orange hugging the mediterranean, shifting slightly east. we have had moderation in the
heat that baked the uk. there's heat now across southeast europe. so places like croatia, greece, into belarus. this is an area that will be under the influence of extreme heat going forward. it's northeast asia as well. japan, korea all hot and well above average for many locations including beijing. this is the climate emergency that's happening thonow, kim? >> let's bring in barbie nadeau in rome where temperatures as you can imagine are expected to stay brutally high. so barbie, how are folks being affected across the country there. >> reporter: well, people are staying indoors and out of the sun as much as possible.
there are lots of cities that have extended free entrance to elderly people to swimming pools for example to give people an opportunity to cool off. air conditioning is rare in this country, and we've seen temperatures just stay brutally hot here. people are doing their normal activities that they would be doing in the summer at all at this point, kim. >> and the other big concern as we heard, fires are happening across europe, including italy where you are. what's the latest? >> reporter: yeah, there are 19 european countries under alert for extreme fire. and it's because it's just been so dry as well, and these areas are just con just tinder boxes. there's a lot of humid air. they're cooking a barbecue or something and these fires get out of control. you hajj those p
you imagine these poor firefighters, it's a dangerous situation for everybody, kim. thank you so much. i want to go now to henna hundle. i want to ask you about the short and median term view. you've been writing about how the heat waves and related power outages because of increased demand can be a deadly combination in california where you are. it's been affected by both. what have you been seeing? >> yeah, you know, i was inspired to write an op ed
recently. and a power outage kurd. a occurred. fortunately, stanford is a well-resourced institution. and in no time, officials were able to set up cooling centers around campus where students could cool off and recharge their devices. people needing support with medical devices could request support. parents could refrigerator eight breast milk. we're seeing heat waves absolutely devastate western europe, portugal, spain, the uk have reported huge numbers of deaths. you see infrastructure buckling under this heat, and i think it highlights how much we need to do more to protect people. >> people of color, i mean according to the epa, people of color face disproportionate harm
from kri from climate change. explain what makes these communities so vulnerable in times like these. >> it's really unfortunate and something that we need more public health action around. there's a study done in 2019 looking at heat-related emergency department visits between 2005 and 2015 in california. and although the number of heat-related emergency department visits increased across the board you saw greater increases for asians, hispanics and black communities. and so this is unfortunately a huge problem. you know, also, minority communities, black and brown communities often have less access to central air conditioning units as opposed to single-room air conditioning units which can affect the ability to keep the household cool. you also see something called urban heat islands. so when you have less foliage and greenery, and you instead
have pavements and densely-packed buildings and concrete and asphalt, that can make the surroundings feel a lot warmer. >> rachel levine recently said that, and i quote her here. our hospitals are for the most part not completely ready, referring to the, dealing with the health threats associated with krclimate change. what more needs to be done? >> i think the medical community has to be at the forefront of open dialog with patients about heat-related risks. you know, there needs to be proactive conversations rather than reactive conversations. you know, for example, there needs to be conversations about action plans in the event of a power outage. where would a patient who requires power for their ventilator or dialysis machines, what would be done? is that patient able to obtain a backup generator.
medication like blood pressure can make patients more susceptible to heat. what or treatment options are available to accommodate their lifestyles? >> with these heat waves getting worse and more frequent, you know, they say, you know, we immediate to invest in air conditioning, cooling and so on. but that all contributes to global warming and climate change. >> i think, you know, what this highlights is we need a system-wide approach, we need to rethink how we look at our infrastructure and design spaces that people inhabit and work in to be more energy efficient. how do we improve insulation? are we using sustainable materials? what about efficient landscaping that can also contribute. looking sure that innovation
extends to the transportation sector. this past week in the uk they actually had to close down one of the airport runways. the trains were buckling under the high heat. making transportation berttter well. >> well said, thank you for being with us. really appreciate it. >> thank you, kim. the beautiful monarch butterfly is at risk for extinction. the insects were added to the endangered list. they say habitat destruction, droughts and climate change are playing a part. we can plant milk weed and protect them interest pesticides. despite the war in europe, millions are risking their lives and many don't survive the journey. >> i hate it.

as russia's war in ukraine rages on, dcountries across europe have welcomed ukrainian refugees with open arms, but other crises are being ignored. for instance the migrant crisis in the mediterranean. since 2021 there's been a big uptick in the number of people trying to reach europe. we take a look at the world's
deadliest migration route. >> reporter: through faded fishing boats, she as much as. where is that boat, she asks? did they take it back to sea? samir wears an image on her shirt. she still sees her son in her dreams. >> this boat that takes my son. i hate this boat. i hate it. i hate it because they take my son. >> reporter: in this video, you can sigh ee italy in the distan. it is her last image of him before he vanished. in europe, ukrainians are given refuge. but we're in tunisia. from across the african continent, migrants make the desperate journey across the
mediter mediterranean through a loose network of dangerous gangs. they work to get people out of tunisia into europe. we'll see if he's comfortable to talk in this neighborhood. but this is his zone, these are his people. he says his gang pulls up to $20,000 u.s. for a boat of migrants. that's up to $2,000 each. live or die. there are no guarantees at sea, he says, because we could take you, but the authorities could catch you. unless you die, then death is your destiny. a destiny like this. crammed into vessels leaving at night. this passage is the planet's deadliest-known migration route says the united nations. more than 24,000 have gone missing just since 2014, but still they go. next time i'm taking my wife and daughter, says the smuggler. even though you though some people don't make it.
yes, they'll be in god's hands. whatever god wants for us. those prayers often go unanswered. these migrant boats piled up at a coast guard harbor. a small boat like this could fit ten people on it to go to italy. >> okay, imagine it's, we have ten, ten people on this small boat for three of 120 miles. >> reporter: 120 miles. >> for sometimes the operation of looking for migrants become operation of assistance and recuperation of dead bodies. >> reporter: even with the latest gear funded by the european union and the u.s., they can't possibly trace the thousands of migrants trying to leave. when they catch them, he says they often say they will try again. >> no matter how well you are trained and equipped, p yif you
not solve the causes of illegal make migrati migration it will continue. >> reporter: we've met this group. not only is it dangerous, this perilous journey, but they are afraid while they live on tunisian shores. they work for years just to save enough money to pay the smugglers, often as laborers and maids. here in tunisia, it's bad. she wants to take her 4 month old daughter to europe. when we get to europe, the conditions are better, we have no liberty here. are you afraid of this journey? often i'm afraid, but sometimes i'm not. because when i see the problems that i'm going through, she says, when i see our future in our dreams high fears vanish.
she says ukrainians are welcome because they are european. the millions of ukrainians are being let in because they are european. >> political systems still look at humans based on color, gender, religion and ethnicity and don't look at them as people entitled to the same rights at the same level. >> the photo of my son. >> reporter: surrounded by her son's image, samir says at least one migrant on the smuggling boat made it to italy. they told her he swam, too. then, like thousands before him, he vanished. but do you still have hope he's alive? >> yes, of course, yes, yes. i suffer. every day i suffer. when i look his photos, i cry. i hope that god help him. >> reporter: david mckinzie, cnn, tunis.
