7:09 am
on to say of those comments from kushner, according to the trump administration, when african-americans find fault in policies that have led to historic unemployment for black families, an explosion of racial inequalities and wealth gap and uncontained global pandemic that has taken the life of over 45,000 black americans, it means that we just don't want to be successful badly enough. michael, clearly understandably a lot of outrage and frustration over these comments. >> oh, yeah, i understand it completely. thank you so much. appreciate that. george will anchor our live coverage of election night with our powerhouse political team at election headquarters in new york, d.c. and delaware, plus, we'll have correspondents reporting live from battleground states across the country. that is on tuesday, november 3rd starting at 7:00 p.m. eastern. robin? >> all right, michael. and with coronavirus emergency cases surging across the country, 44 states reporting an increase, cities and states are reimposing restrictions. marcus moore is in el paso, texas, where hospitals there are at capacity. good morning, marcus. >> reporter: robin, good

championship in more than 30 years unless tampa bay, unless the tampa bay rays hold them off in game six. we'll see what happens. george. right now, we turn to sentencing day for sex cult leader keith raniere. the founder of nxivm was convicted last year of sex trafficking and extortion and he now faces the possibility of life behind bars. amy switching gears here with the story >> that's right. keith raniere has been tight-lipped since his conviction last year but he is talking now, he says he regrets nothing. today in court he will be listening to hours of statements from some of his victims and to a judge who could put him away for good. this morning, keith raniere, founder of the secretive self-help group nxivm, will be sentenced facing life behind bars for his role in the so-called sex cult. >> i'm an interesting person. i'm a controversial person, but most importantly, i'm an unconventional person. >> reporter: prosecutors say raniere, known as vanguard to his followers, was a con man and a predator who used blackmail to force women to be his slaves and have sexual relationships with
7:33 am
him. raniere hadn't spoken publicly since he was convicted of sex trafficking, racketeering and conspiracy charges last year. >> this call is from -- >> keith raniere. >> an inmate at a federal prison. >> reporter: but this weekend, with the help of followers who still support him, he released a podcast from behind bars saying he is just trying to do good. >> you know, you have the people, the gandhis, the martin luther kings, all those great people of the world and, you know, i'm nowhere, nowhere near that in what i've been able to achieve. yeah, in this particular case, i'm given a spotlight that is far greater than my personhood. >> reporter: and that he's not the devil some people think he is. >> women have been treated terribly in this country, and in the world, but in particular in this country by people of power, by people like me, but that doesn't mean that i did those
7:34 am
things and it certainly doesn't mean that i'm guilty of these charges. >> reporter: many of raniere's former followers will be inside the courtroom to deliver victim impact statements to the judge including india oxenberg, daughter of catherine oxenberg, who spent seven years in the group. in her first interview since breaking free from the so-called guru she told us she was brainwashed, branded with his initials and coerced into a relationship with him. >> i'm planning to speak at his sentencing. i need that closure. >> do you know what you're going to say? >> i have a written statement that i've been paining over and over and then i woke up a couple of days ago at 4:00 a.m. and just wrote something out that came -- it just flew out of me and i felt like that's what i need to say so i'm planning on saying that. >> now, five other nxivm leaders including actress allison mack were charged along with raniere.
7:35 am
one was recently sentenced to more than six years in prison, mack and the others don't have sentencing dates yet, but it will certainly be an emotional and powerful day in court today. >> thank you, amy. we return now to the coronavirus crisis as new cases surge nationwide. maine has managed to keep cases relatively low and still has the lowest positivity rate in the nation. this despite having the oldest population in the country. stephanie ramos is in portland where she's going to tell us how they're doing it. good morning, stephanie. >> reporter: robin, good morning. a civil state of emergency was declared here in maine in march within three days of the first recorded covid case and it's still in effect as the number of covid cases holds steady. while much of the country is still seeing a surge in covid-19 cases, maine, which has the country's oldest population, has the lowest covid infection rates. the state's covid-19 test
7:36 am
positivity rate averaging roughly 1.21% is the lowest in the nation. in comparison equally rural north dakota has a rate more than ten times higher with roughly 60% of the population of maine and a younger population with an average age of 35. >> we saw covid-19 coming from the end of december, early january when the global health experts began to warn of what was happening. we had a plan. >> reporter: governor janet mills mandated face coverings in public spaces and issued stay-at-home orders in april. people listened. schools in maine have so far managed to keep their infection numbers in check. in portland, the state's largest school district, schools are using a combination of in-person and remote online learning. of the 5700 kids rotating into classes two days a week, the school district has had one covid case. >> the infection happened outside of school and we did not
7:37 am
have any close contacts that tested positive. >> reporter: as far as the economy, maine's tourism industry is down, especially in towns heavily dependent on canadian tourists, maine's hotel, bars and restaurants are expected to lose more than a billion dollars in revenue this year. robin. >> all right, stephanie, thank you. joining us live now is a man behind maine's covid response dr. nirav shah, the director of the maine center for disease control. thank you so much, dr. shah, for being with us. we heard in stephanie's report how well your state is doing. please tell us what have been the keys to that, doing that so well? >> well, good morning, robin. thank you so much for having me on. i am so delighted and proud to talk about the work that my colleagues across the state of maine have done and that maine people have done. i think the keys to some of the favorable positions that we find ourselves in are a few.
7:38 am
the first is that science means something in maine. when we at the state level advised and asked people to follow best scientific principles like wearing a mask and staying six feet apart, people across the state did so. science really does mean something here. the second is that our early preparation put us in a good and favorable footing to handle the surge of cases later. before our first case in maine, we had already started distributing ppe to health care providers. we had already started working with the health care community to prepare for the onset of cases and we built a significant and massive testing architecture that allowed us to keep that positivity rate at what you noted is right now one of the lowest in the country. one of the things that we know in public health is that what is predictable is preventible. we knew what was coming and we made sure that we were ready for it. >> household transition -- transmission is of great concern, i know, there in maine and all across the country as
7:39 am
well and with the holidays approaching and families gathering, what is your advice? >> robin, you know, this is such a bewildering time for everybody and as we go into the colder months, we know even in maine let alone in other states that much more transmission is occurring in places that were previously seen as safe havens. our kitchen table, our living room, our workplace, our houses of worship are now places where there are risks of transmission. what we recommend to folks as we go into the holiday season, as we go into the colder months, is to take the same steps you would have taken at a restaurant or bar, to make sure that you're wearing a mask, to make sure that you know who you're inviting over to your place, to make sure that even when indoors you maintain physical distance. as we go into the holiday, those are concrete things that everyone can do to prevent covid-19 from becoming the uninvited guest at every one of your holiday gatherings.
7:40 am
>> well put. dr. shah, thank you so much for being with us this morning and all the best to you. continued success there in maine with how you're dealing with covid-19. thank you. >> thank you so much. >> all right, michael. robin, coming up next the latest on the hunt for those murder hornets and the big concern about what scientists didn't find. t scientists didn't find.

i've ever had on a job. patty jenkins, gal godot, kristen wiig, chris pine, it was an experience that i'll never forget. i think there's always such a human side to everything that patty does so even role of villain is to be unexpected in this one where you -- as soon as you sort of think that you'll be getting, you know, the portrait of the evil, you know, snake oil salesman from the '80s, there's more to it, and that's only one of the many exciting things about that movie that i am just desperate for people to see. it's a good one. it's a really good one. >> we sure are looking forward to it. thanks for joining us. season two of "mandalorian" -- >> it was such a pleasure. >> season two of "the mandalorian" premieres friday only on disney plus. revealing our november book club pick. plus, chef marcus samuelsson will join us live with classic

8:41 am
marcus, i could not wait. in the commercial break our fabulous crew put your dish out here in front of us and you can tell mine -- you can hear the plate at the bottom of it. congratulations on this beautiful, beautiful new book, marcus. it's more than a cookbook. it's really talking about the culture of food. what inspired you to write it? >> well, you know, i just wanted to celebrate black excellence when it comes to cooking. the way we understand it through music, for example, right, there's so many incredible voices in the black space in terms of america's food that this deserves to be broadcast and share those stories. so, this is the time to rise. this is the time to learn about black chefs in america on a broader scale because black chefs, black cooks have contributed so much to american foods and i just wanted to share that story.
8:42 am
>> so glad you decided to do that. so share with us what you are preparing today. >> yes, i'm doing my son -- i call it zaza's favorite pasta. he might not eat all those spices but he likes the shape of the pasta and likes to throw it around and this kind of like is a blend between my wife's journey and us being here in america so the chicken stew is from ethiopia, spicy, adds beautiful spice to it but -- anyone can cook down chicken thighs and add them in like a bolognese sauce. i add in sweet potato. if you can't find the spice, do it with smoked paprika or the spice that you enjoy. >> right. >> it's just a nice fun pasta dish and hopefully we'll get him to eat it, not just play with
8:43 am
the food. >> that's true. well, how can you cut down on the cooking time, marcus? >> you know, it's really -- it's a leftover dish. roasted chicken, rip it apart. you can also shred the chicken and then just the cooking time goes down by two-thirds, you know, so it's really nice and quick. this is a difference, delicious dish. >> we know this. >> look at this. >> speaking of shredded chicken, michael is shredding his plate of chicken right now. it is delicious. had you a salad to go along with it, don't you, marcus? >> exactly. we have this beautiful collard green salad that has grapefruit and pears and super delicious with grape vinaigrette, you know, so the food, to eat something heavier for the holidays you want a clean, nice, fresh salad as well. >> nice and light. what is the dressing? it's really light. >> yeah, yeah, it's a nice coconut dressing. you know, we have to -- so much of our food that's in america
8:44 am
that came from the continent, coconut is one of the ingredients that you can use coconut milk to make a nice vinaigrette. >> yes, you can. so what do you want people picking up your book to get out of it, marcus? >> yeah, you know, we have such an incredible country, multi-cultural and the black experience when it comes to food has added so much and in a time like this, robin, when we have this incredible nationwide conversation about race, identity and culture, what would be better than to cook from it. you don't have to be african-american to cook from it. the family, as a family going into the holidays, you can cook from "the rise" and learn about other chefs in your community that is part of this because this experience is our america. it's our experience as america. >> that is beautifully put. there is something about being around the table when you're with your family and having conversations and inviting others in at an appropriate distance. all right, marcus samuelsson, thank you so very, very much. >> good to see you, marcus.
