10:07 pm
we'll go to peter doocy who is there with the latest news. reporter: good afternoon from tokyo. the whole point of this biden trip to asia, south core re-and japan is to figure out how to make the united states and other asian partners less reliable on china. they are trying to send a message to the chinese, if they decide to move on die juan, they will be passed out like russia is after invading ukraine. the supply chains are completely crimped as china remains locked down because of covid. they don't want to rely on china for being unreliable trade partners or for using unfair trade practices. so send yeah, japan and
10:08 pm
australia are all getting together here in japan to try to figure out what to do about it. there was a fair amount of that when we were in south korea. for anybody watching. the format, the way this will work. there will be two podiums. we'll have the japanese leader and the president. they will each take two questions from their delegations. we expect to see two american reporters with a question for the president and the japanese leader, and two japanese leaders. we got a lot of information about just the things that the president is trying to do. and something to take note of as you can see this picture of all the reporters getting ready to dictate to the rest of the world ways happening overnight in many parts of the united states. you are not going to hear the
10:09 pm
president -- at least our president, use the word china. he wants to call them out for what they are doing and not doing. but he does not ever when he talked about them name china or the leader xi. we are told there was a 2-minute warning a few minutes ago. now we wait for them to come out. i can see the teleprompter ready. jackie: this wraps up tomorrow, correct? how does this go tomorrow? this is his first to this part of the world since he became president. reporter: from the biden
10:10 pm
administration's perspective things are going well. they were concerned that a north korean missile test or nuclearfest while he was in south korea. it would change the talking points for the leaders and the people asking question questions at this event. the fact that the north koreans and kim jong-un have not launched anything else, i would think the leaders will be asked what they want to be asked about. they are trying to figure out how. it's not something that will happen overnight. but how over the coming years and decades the united states and asian partners can become less reliant on china. when we were in south korea to start this trip, the president
10:11 pm
went to samsung to talk about how they can build semi conduct stores. if there is a supply chain problem, that's not something the rest of the world has to worry about. he talked to hyundai about the investment in batteries, something they can do together and note rely on china in case there is another problem down the road. the president has not sat least publicly talked about the biggest issue, global issue from asia in the last several years. that is covid origin. he promised last august after an intel review failed to come up with something conclusive with
10:12 pm
how covid started in china. he was going to get answered and said he wasn't going to rest until he did. he was talking about global health challenges and how important it is to work with world partners so the challenges are not going to catch everybody off guard again. so far nothing on the covid origin. that could come as but we don't know. jackie: he did say he would sends vaccines over, correct? reporter: pardon me, it dropped out for one second. >> the president did say he would send vaccine s from the u.s. over, correct? >> he did. he said he would send back things to china or north korea. but the president is claiming this diplomatic offer has gone -- it has not been
10:13 pm
responded to. that's a big one. the other big headline from this trip so far is he says he would sit down with kim jong-un without any kind of a set precondition. as you look at the screen, you can see from screen left to screen right. the u.s. ambassador, and secretary of state tony blinken and the commerce secretary who is with the president because of what we were talking about earlier, all the investments the president wants this trip to be about. even though he wants that to be what the trip is all about, that hasn't happened so far. he said he would meet with kim jong-un without preconditions as long as he president biden
10:14 pm
determined he was sincere. there is no reason believe that that would be happening anytime soon. they are dealing with their first known outbreak of covid in north korea. $the president said he wants to be the vaccine capital of the world and try to get vaccines into hermit kingdoms like north korea. jackie: is there a funny exchange, i believe a journalist asked him -- can you repeat what he told that journalist what he would say to jim jong-un. it was a little bit bizarre. >> it was a sound bite of the trip so far. and again the president wants me talking about economic investment that the u.s. is making. but he was asked -- okay, you
10:15 pm
are going to talk to kim jong-un without preconditions. what is your message to him then? the president said hello, then he paused. then he said period. you can be sure they are seeing that in pyongyang and wondering why he didn't come himself to the dmz. we are told there is a further 2-minute warning. jackie: sometimes in the media that means nothing. >> after the meeting the path's
10:16 pm
staff will get together with him and say we listen in on the meeting within and these are the points we want to focus on. they are walking up to the mic right now, jackie. he will deliver his remarks. we are immensely pleased with president biden's visit too japan, the president of the united states.

[inaudible] for the further strengthening of the alliance we like to remain in close coordination between japan and the united states. thank you. >> thank you very much.
10:40 pm
>> mr. president, i wanted to ask you about the economy. during your trip to asia you promoted the investments by samsung and hyundai. but back home in the united states, americans are dealing with record high inflation, the fed raised interest rates to try to address those issues, and they are also enormously high gas prices. given the cross currents of the economy, the war in ukraine, the china lockdowns we have seen, should americans be repaired for a recession? in your view is a recession in the united states i hible? >> no. >> why not? >> look, you are talking about the significant progress we have made and making sure we don't have supply chain backups. about the 8,000 jobs hyundai
10:41 pm
will be bringing to georgia. 3,000 jobs in texas with samsung. $17 billion investment. toyota, 1,700 jobs in north carolina on battery technology. the situation where we are at -- we created 8 million new jobs are unemployment is down to 3.%, so object and so forth. imagine where we would be with putin's attacks and the war in ukraine if we had not made that enormous progress. our gdp is going to gross faster than chinas for the first time in four years. does that mean we don't have problems? we do. but less consequential because of our internal growth and strength. when it comes to the gas prices.
10:42 pm
we are going through an incredible transition that is taking place that god willing with it's over we'll be stronger and the world will be strong and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over. you see what europe is doing with the importation of russian gas. what i have been able to do to keep it from getting worse. and it's bad. the price of gas at the pump you heard me say before, i had a discussion at my kitchen table as a kid when i was growing up. it affected a lot of families. we released 257,000 million barrels of oil. it's helped but it's not been enough. we also find ourselves in a situation where we we have food short across because of ukraine. there are literally millions of bushels of grain being held up
10:43 pm
in ukraine that would fundamentally impact positively on the market in terms of bringing down food prices across the board. we are working hard with american farmers and american agricultural products to buy more fertilizer and a whole range of things. this will be a haul and take some time. in the meantime the best thing i can do in addition to trying to get the middle eastern countries, including opec to raise the production of oil and move along that route is to see to it that we continue to grow our economy and create jobs. i know people don't want to talk about it right now and i won't take up the time. but there is a second wave to impact people in terms of inflation on daily costs. if you are able to have
10:44 pm
childcare at 7% of your income. if you are in a position where we are able to provide a tax cut for middle class and working class people, et cetera. those things would be very helpful. we have a 50-50 senate which means we have 50 presidents. but i'm not going to give up. >> secretary yellen said some of the tariffs on chinese imports impose more harm on consumers and businesses and aren't very strategic. do you share that view and are you considering taking down some of those tariffs? >> i'm talking with the secretary when i get home. we did not impose any of those tariffs thp. they were imposed by the last administration. >> we'll be hearing more about
10:45 pm
this indopacific economic forum today. what message do you hope it sends to china and do you see this as a potential precursor to a trade pack given the political situation in the united states dealing with ppp? >> thank you for your question. the united states and the indopacific region is making economic interests known. and very [inaudible] shown by the united states and the values in japan. regarding the ppp. we are hoping for the return of
10:46 pm
the united states. but even with the ppp, it's important we continue with discussions. that attitude of the united states is wholeheartedly welcomed by the japanese government and we would like to support the u.s. initiative. china is demonstrating significant economic presence in the indopacific. but look into the substance of their presence. are they abiding by international rules? what about development [inaudible] are they caring about sustainable initiative? they have significant responsibility even in the economic field and they have to live up to that responsibility. so japan will cooperate with the
10:47 pm
united states and persuade china to live up to their responsibilities to abide by international rules. we think such attitude is very important. thank you. >> we see a question from the japanese reporter. please raise your hand. >> prime minister kashida and president biden. i have a question about. some [inaudible] would it be effective to insure the effectiveness? what is the role japan will be
10:48 pm
playing? and also there was expectations expressed for united states to come back to ppp. iewnd the leadership of president biden shortly after this press conference there will be an official launch. this a dem straifghts positive commitment of the united states to the indopacific. japan welcomes such steps and we are in actual support. i'll join president biden to participate in the inauguration ceremony.
10:49 pm
and through this it's important to realize sustainable and inclusive economic growth in the indopacific. in your question you asked about the. we are going to discuss various matters not only with the united states, but regional partners in order to shortly deliver concrete results. so this is venue to engage in months tough discussion for cooperation. and through such initiatives we want to deliver concrete and spec results, and that will serve as specific and merit for those countries.
10:50 pm
you asked a question about the tpp. we want the united states to be engaged from the economic perspective as well. so our position remained unchanged. we think it's important for the united states to return to the ptp. during the meeting i communicated our hopes to the president. i will not make any further details comment as it pertains to diplomatic exchanges. finally i invite question s from the u.s. press.
10:51 pm
>> thank you so much. i have a question for the prime minister but first to you, mr. president. we are dealing with one global pandemic. yesterday you said monkey pox is something everyone should be concerned with. some countries are imposing 21-day quarantines for people who are infected or just exposed. should americans expect something similar. >> we had this monkey pox in large numbers in the past. and we have vaccines to take care of it. thus far there doesn't seem to be a need for any extra effort beyond what's going on. i don't think it rises to the level of the kinds of concern that existed with covid-19 and
10:52 pm
the smallpox vaccine works for it. but i think people should be careful. >> do you think the u.s. has enough smallpox vaccine stockpiled? >> i think we have enough to deal with the likelihood of the problem. >> mr. prime minister can you tell us how japan were to respond if china were to invade and try to take over taiwan. and how do you think the u.s. would respond if that were to happen. and mr. president, if you could tell us how the u.s. would respond, i would appreciate it. >> thank you. on taiwan, in the summit meetings it was brought up in our discussion. the situation in the taiwan
10:53 pm
strait, the fundamental position of japan and the united states was reaffirmed. there is no change. and we asserted the importance of peace and stability of the taiwan strait with it being fundamental to international order. we reconfirmed that position. now, in asia, we are against any attempt to change status quo by force in asia, all the more so because of such position regarding the situation? ukraine. we think that the status quo is informational. and we decided to participate in the strong sanctions span we are providing humanitarian i --
10:54 pm
assistance. in order to defend peace and stability in asia we'll drastically upgrade and strengthen our defense capability. and the united states is the only ally for japan. the japan-u.s. alliance is very, very important. we have to strengthen this alliance to defend peace and stability in the region. and in so doing. extend the deterrence and response by the united states must be reliable. we have full confidence of response by the united states including deterrence and strengthening the u.s.-japan alliance is important. we hope as many members of the general public will have even deeper confidence in this alliance. and i look forward to
10:55 pm
cooperating with president biden to that end. >> our policy toward taiwan mass not changed at all. we remain committed to supporting the peace and stability across the taiwan states and insure there is no unilateral change in the status quo. i would add that one of the reasons why it's so important that putin pay a dear price for his barbarism in ukraine. the idea that on your station today and every station in america, they are showing bombings of schools. no military purpose. schools, hospitals. museums. blowing up all the museums. i believe putin is trying to i am nate the identity of ukraine. he can't occupy it but he can
10:56 pm
try to destroy its identity. the reason i try to mention that. russia has to pay a longterm price for that in terms of sanctions that have been imposed. the reason i say this, it's not just about ukraine. if after all he has done there is an agreement between ukraine and russia. and the sanctions not continued to be sustained in many ways. what signal does thatds to china about the cost of attempting to take taiwan by force? the united states is committed. we made a commitment. we support the one china policy. we report all we have done in the past. but that does not mean that china has the ability -- has the
10:57 pm
jurisdiction to go in and use force to take over taiwan. we stand firmly with japan and with other nations not to let that happen. and my expectation is it will not happen, it will not attempted, and my expectation is a lot of it depends on how strong in a world makes clear that that kind of action is going to result in long-term disapprobation by the rest of the communities. >> are you willing to get involved militarily to defend taiwan if it comes to that? >> yes. >> you are? >> that's the commitment we made. that's a commitment we made. here is the situation. we agreed with a one-china policy. we signed on to it. and all the attendant agreements made from there.
10:58 pm
but the idea it can be taken by force is just not appropriate. lit dislocate the entire region and be another action similar to what happened in ukraine. so it's a burden that is even stronger. thank you very much. appreciate it. >> thank you very much. this will be the end of the joint press conference by prime minister kashida and president biden. reporter: president biden is concluding an overnight united states time press conference in tokyo with the japanese prime minister. the headline is two big headlines. he says he does not think a recession is inevitable in the united states.
10:59 pm
and the united states does have problems the rest of the world is having, but he thinks the united states is better off. a major headline made at the very end during a follow-up question by cbs news. he said if china decides to invade taiwan which he does not think will happen. he says if it does, he will use the use the military to respond to chinese aggression. he was speaking in the context of the longterm price russia is going to have to pay for invading ukraine. but that is a first. that's the first time we have heard the president say he will use the united states military muscle to go in and defend taiwan if china decides they want to invade. that's certainly going to be on the front pages of the headlines in the newspapers in asia as the
11:00 pm
president continues his trip here and prepares to meet with the quad leaders to talk economic expectations. back to you, jackie. jackie: later president biden is set to deliver another statement in tokyo. we'll bring you a live report when that happens. we are going to take a break. we'll be right back. president biden elected as uniter signals that he is done trying to work with republicans and former president trump tallies his wins and losses in the first big round of primaries. the gloves are off. pennsylvania still counting votes. now, we are just two days for a big races in alabama and georgia >> it is the final stretch of georgia's federal republican governors race where former president donald trump
