7:03 am
>> reporter: good morning, robin. well, i was in the chamber last night and this really was just a surreal scene. a joint address like we've really never seen before. the president, though, seizing this moment to outline his ambitious and costly agenda to remake america. he says the country is in a once in a generation moment and that we are on the move and the u.s. can't stop now. with fist bumps and elbow jabs, the president entering the chamber for his first joint address relishing in the history of the moment. >> madam speaker, madam vice president. >> reporter: for the first time women.esident flanked by two - >> no president has ever said those words, and it's about time. >> reporter: on the eve of his 100th day the president touting his successes so far highlighting his strides to combat the pandemic. >> everyone over the age of 16, everyone is now eligible to get vaccinated right now right away.
7:04 am
go get vaccinated, america. >> reporter: biden then pushing his plan to reshape the economy and the role of government. >> we have to prove democracy still works, that our government still works and we can deliver for our people. >> reporter: the president urging congress to pass his ambitious infrastructure bill. speaking directly to american workers. >> now, i know some of you at home are wondering whether these jobs are for you. american jobs plan is a blue collar blueprint to build america. that's what it is. >> reporter: and he's tasking the vice president with leading the charge. >> i'm asking the vice president to lead this effort if she would because i know it will get done. >> reporter: the president outlining a sweeping new child care and education plan calling for universal pre-k, paid family leave and tuition-free community college. >> we also need to make a once in a generation investment in our families and our children. >> reporter: but his expansive vision comes with an expensive
7:05 am
price tag. over $4 trillion in new spending calling on only the wealthiest americans and corporations to foot the bill. >> i will not impose any tax increase on people making less than $400,000. we're only going to affect 0.3% of all americans by that action. >> reporter: republicans largely stonefaced in their seats opposed to the tax hikes and steep price tag. biden says he's open to bipartisanship but not a blockade. >> i'd like to meet with those who have ideas that are different, that think are better i welcome those ideas. but the rest of the world is not waiting for us. doing nothing is not an option. >> reporter: the president also highlighting the dangers of white supremacy, the stark contrast from his pred >> we won't ignore what our intelligence agency has determined to be the most lethal terrorist threat to the homeland
7:06 am
today, white supremacy terrorism. >> reporter: senator tim scott a rising star in the republican party delivering the response, branding biden's agenda as another example of wasteful government spending. >> our best future will not come from washington schemes or socialist dreams. it will come from you, the american people. >> reporter: scott, who is leading a bipartisan effort to pass police reform, speaking of his own experiences with racism and warning against using race a a political weapon. >> america is not a racist country. it's backwards to fight discrimination with different types of discrimination and it's wrong to try to use our painful past to dishonestly shut down debates in the present. >> reporter: the challenge now for the president, of course, is going to be selling this plan. he is off to atlanta today for a rally there to begin a big push to do just that. but, look, he's taking a real gamble with this sweeping plan, and, guys, he's now relying on the vice president to help carry
7:07 am
this across the finish line. >> why should you mention that, mary, because vice president kamala harris is now joining us live. e good morning to you. >> good morning. >> that historic image seeing you and house speaker pelosi, so much reaction to the president's speech last night. what's your main takeaway? >> i believe that the president yet again has reminded us to be optimistic and believe in america, believe in america. he was very clear, he's going to bet -- we're going to bet on americans and america every day and the work that he has been doing and the words of his speech, i think, really rallied the country to remember that we are competitive by nature. we believe in investing in working people. that is how we have grown. that is how we have grown our economy. that is how we've grown our standing around the world and this is a president who is prepared to continue to invest,
7:08 am
knowing the great potential and the great role of leadership that our country plays in the world. >> thank you for joining us, madam vice president. the president's specific proposals are broadly popular but our new poll shows a majority concerned about the size and scope of the package. they want the president to work with republicans. how much are you willing to compromise? how much time will you give them before trying it with democrats alone? >> right, well, george, as the president even mentioned last night, we have been in many meetings in the oval office with republicans and democrats together, talking about all of these issues and inviting their feedback, inviting their ideas. we're very serious about that and very sincere in our hope and that we can reflect the bipartisan nature of the american people on these issues and come together in a way that is about, again, investing in families, investing in job creation, investing in the competitiveness of our country, vis-a-vis the world and the president specifically mentioned china as an example. >> but the president talking
7:09 am
about immigration, he did not lay out a concrete plan with dealing with the surge of migrants, especially at the border, and that's your task. that's a job that he has handed you. so can you be specific with immediate plans that you will have in facing this issue? >> so, robin, what he mentioned is that i am responsible for and have been taking on the responsibility of dealing with the root causes of migration. here's how i think about it. listen, when you look at the northern triangle, which is the area of focus, the geographic area of focus, you have to ask and realize that i think most people don't want to leave home. they don't want to leave their grandmother. they don't want to leave the place where they grew up, the place where they're familiar with, the culture and the language. when people leave home it's usually for one of two reasons, because they don't have opportunities there to fulfill their basic needs like feeding their children or keeping a roof over their head or they're fleeing some kind of harm so the way that we are then dealing
7:10 am
with this is to say, hey, let's, one, understand these are our neighbors in the western hemisphere and let's do what we can to give the folks there some hope, that if they stay, help is on the way. so i've been convening, for example, members of our cabinet including secretary of commerce who is going to have a virtual trade mission with the folks in guatemala and in the region, our secretary of agriculture, tom vilsack, where we're looking at the fact that among the needs and the harm in that area, it includes that they've had two gigantic hurricanes and now drought. we're talking about economies that are in large part based on their agricultural production so this is the work we're doing. i have convened american foundations to renew their emphasis and priority around the northern triangle. i've been talking with foreign leaders. i met right in this room with the prime minister of japan to talk about renewing our friendship on many levels including an investment in the northern triangle.
7:11 am
similarly, i've talked heads of state around what we can do including giving th to renew its focus on the northern triangle through our great u.n. ambassador linda thomas-greenfield so this is the work that we need to do. it will not be fixed overnight. look, if it were easy, it would have been fixed a long time ago. it's not a new issue but we are prepared to make the investment and to get in there for the long haul to do what is necessary to address the reasons people flee. >> senator tim scott said last night that america is not a racist country. do you agree with that and what do you make of his warning against fighting discrimination with more discrimination? >> i believe that we need to -- well, first of all, i don't think america is a racist country, but we also do have to speak truth about the history of racism in our country and its existence today, and i applaud the president for always having the ability and the courage, frankly, to speak the truth about it.
7:12 am
he spoke what we know from the intelligence community, one of the greatest threats to our national security is domestic terrorism, manifested by white supremacists and so these are issues that we must confront and it doesn't -- it does not help to heal our country, to unify us as a people, to ignore the ralities of that and i think the president has been outstanding and a real national leader on the issue of saying, let's confront the realities and let's deal with it knowing we all have so much more in common thanra what sepates us. and the idea is that we want to unify the country, but not without speaking truth and requiring accountability as appropriate. >> have more in common than not. madam vice president, i don't have to tell you, 100 days, today marks 100 days of this administration. >> yes, yes. >> so how would you compare where we are as a nation today as opposed to when you and the president took the oval office?
7:13 am
>> well, 100 days in today, when we came into office on january 20th, we were looking at, you know, essentially a fraction of americans who had been vaccinated. we now -- as the president has rightly said have vaccinated over 200 million americans, the majority of adults in america have been vaccinated. folks got their $1,400 checks who desperately needed them, trying to make it work. 10 million people were unemployed and helping them get through this moment. we have done the work of getting schools re-opened and now everyone from 16 on up can get vaccinated and that means our teachers and our school bus drivers and kids are back in school. so these are the things that are happening and also we have made a real serious commitment and investment to job creation in america and we are as -- the president said last night, america is back and we're here to stay. >> madam vice president, thank you for joining us on this 100th day. >> thank you all, be well. thank you. >> michael?
7:14 am
now we turn to the latest in the fight against the pandemic. that's just about 55% of the u.s. adult population. but the demand for vaccines is dropping and thousands of doses are set to expire this afternoon. marcus moore joins us from tulsa, oklahoma, where they're averaging fewer than 200 shots a day. good morning, marcus. >> reporter: well, michael, good morning. health officials here in tulsa are concerned about that. they can give thousands of shots at this vaccination site every single day here but right now people are trickling in to get vaccinated. this morning, health officials concerned as demand declines for covid-19 vaccines. thousands of doses going unused across the country. in oklahoma, a state where the average daily death toll is rising, a startling reality. at this fema site here in tulsa, oklahoma, they can do 3,000 shots a day, but look at this. absolutely no line and officials
7:15 am
here tell us they're averaging fewer than 200 a day. fema going door to do. in philadelphia, the clock is ticking. 3,000 doses set to expire this afternoon at the pennsylvania convention center. after vaccinating 7,000 people a day there, the average has dropped to the low hundreds. >> i don't want to do it but i'm going to do it because i want to go see my grandson and daughter. >> reporter: overall, cases across the country are now dropping and states are rolling back more restrictions. in georgia, this park will be open to 100% capacity next week. in new jersey, governor phil murphy signing an executive pory camps to re-open this summer. but as life returns to normal, an alert, some insurance companies are changing policies and no longer waving some covid fees. >> people who get covid now could be facing huge deductible payments of $1,000, $2,000, even more than that. >> reporter: one provider aetna telling abc news that while some
7:16 am
of their waivers like in-patient treatment expired in january and february they are still waving fees for covid testing and vaccines. while back here in oklahoma the effort to vaccinate continues. michael? >> hope those numbers pick up. marcus, thank you so much. george? >> thank you so much. we'll get the latest on the fbi raid of rudy giuliani's new york city home and office. authorities seized electronic devices including a cell phone from president trump's personal attorney during his time at the white house. jon karl reports from giuliani's apartment building in new york. >> reporter: rudy giuliani, former president trump's personal attorney who attempted to dig up dirt on his client's political rivals, is now at the center of a criminal investigation. federal agents raided giuliani's manhattan apartment waking him up at 6:00 in the morning. they searched his office too, seizing electronic devices including his cell phone. according to giuliani's lawyer, investigators are after information related to his activities in ukraine in 2019 when he was pushing the country's government to investigate joe biden's son hunter, the focus of donald
7:17 am
trump's first impeachment. giuliani has downplayed speculation he could be in legal jeopardy and insisting he's only been fighting the good fight. >> i started my career and maybe i'll end it rooting out corruption at the highest levels of government. >> reporter: but now he finds himself investigated by the u.s. attorney for the southern district of new york. giuliani's lawyer denied he's done anything wrong, while his son reacted to the raid by lashing out at the justice department. >> this is disgusting. this is absolutely absurd. if this can happen to the former president's lawyer this can happen to any american. >> reporter: in a sign of just how quickly and aggressively the fbi is moving on this, federal agents also seized the computer of giuliani's longtime personal assistant and, george, they issued a subpoena for her to appear before a federal grand jury in the coming weeks. >> and new york prosecutors continue to investigate president trump as well. thank you, jon. michael? we are following a lot of
7:18 am
other headlines this morning, including that possible new twist in the unsolved case of those two murdered indiana girls and suspect authorities now believe might be connected. but first, let's go to ginger. >> reporter: michael, you had softball sized hail in texas. this damage south of oklahoma city. an ef-1 among the many, right, four reported all the way to illinois and now, with flash flooding as part of the threat, we see the severe storm forecast from birmingham, alabama, all the way up to scranton, pennsylvania. a majority of today will be about damaging winds. if you are in this highlighted area back through west virginia and kentucky, be weather aware. your local weather in 30 seconds. first the rainy cities sponsored by amazon.

comfy chair. we'll hear he's saying about vaccinations for the players and staff, robin. >> he liked your line too. you can see his expression. we'll continue with a potential new break in the unsolved murders of two girls in delphi, indiana. authorities now saying they are looking into a possible connection between a kidnapping suspect and a 2017 killing that rocked that small community. amy is here with the latest details for us. good morning, amy. >> good morning. investigators have been searching for more than four years to find a double murderer who they say could be hiding in plain sight. this morning, a potential new lead in the unsolved murders of 13-year-old abby williams and 14-year-old libby german, two eighth grade girls last seen snapchatting on a hiking trail in 2017 but despite the video and audio of the suspect taken from libby's cell phone -- >> guys, down the hill. >> reporter: -- their killer has never been more than
7:33 am
investigators say they are looking into a person they believe might be connected to the murders. last week police arresting 42-year-old james chadwell, charging him with the kidnapping and attempted murder of a 10-year-old girl in lafayette, indiana, about 20 miles away from delphi. the sheriff telling abc news, there are several factors leading them to look into chadwell in connection with the delphi girls, but declining to go into detail. chadwell has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him and has not responded to requests for comment regarding that possible connection. the murders of abby and libby have haunted the town for years. >> i think of abby and libby all the time. i have their names etched in my desk. >> reporter: in 2017 authorities releasing this grainy photo of a suspect they said was on the trail the same day the eighth graders went missing with no arrests, later releasing this video footage recovered from libby's cell phone along with audio believed to be the suspect's voice. >> guys.
7:34 am
down the hill. >> reporter: police saying they believe she recorded it because she feared they were in danger. >> watch the mannerisms as he walks. do you recognize the mannerisms as being someone that you might know? >> reporter: believing the killer was likely a local, investigators initially released this sketch of the suspect, but in 2019, they released a new younger looking suspect sketch based on a witness recollection. potentially placing the man between 18 and 40 years old. >> to the killer who may be in this room, we believe you are hiding in plain sight. >> reporter: now, chadwell is due back in court to face charges on june 10th but certainly we hope those families get some answers soon, george. >> okay, amy, thanks very much. we move now to that looming gas shortage this summer as many families across the country get ready to hit the road and gio benitez has more on why it's happening, what you can do to plan ahead. good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey, george, good morning.
7:35 am
yeah, this gas station behind me has plenty of gas, and so do most of them across the country right now, but come this summer some experts say that some stations may be seeing delays. this morning, a warning from the tanker truck industry saying some stations may run out of gas this summer and not because of a gas shortage, instead a trucker shortage. >> last year during the pandemic, many of the drivers were tired or they went to different industries and that created a shortage. >> reporter: according to trucking trade group, national tank truck carriers up to a quarter of all tank trucks in the country that carry gas are parked because they don't have the drivers. so far it's only affected some stations in las vegas and northwest arkansas, but come this summer, experts say we may see shortages in vacation hot spots. >> what we're looking at is this summer in terms of this happening most likely in spots that are very popular in terms of travel destinations for the summer so beaches, mountains. >> reporter: truck driver jeremi johnson doesn't carry gas but
7:36 am
he's seen the problem firsthand. >> through the pandemic there was a lot of people, a lot of guys that were single operators that went out of business because the rates went so low. >> reporter: demand for gas is already reaching prepandemic levels. in fact, if you look at just the week of april 12th from last year, we saw people taking about 4billion trips under 25 miles. compare that to the same week this year, nearly 6 billion. so do you think that people should be panicking and sort of going out there and buying as much gas as they can? >> there is no reason to panic. i can tell you that much because when this has happened the few isolated incidents that we've seen it's happened to a chain or a brand in a market, not the entire market. >> reporter: experts tell us a good tip to keep in mind is, don't wait until you're almost on empty to fill up the tank. go ahead and fill up when you
7:37 am
have maybe a quarter tank of gas left. that way you have time to go from one station to another if you have to. guys. >> makes a lot of sense, thanks very much. coming up, nfl commissioner roger goodell is going to join us live for an exclusive interview ahead of tonight's big nfl draft. be right back. lie nelson ♪ ♪ ♪ we're delivering for the earth. by investing in more electric vehicles, reusable packaging, and carbon capture research. making earth our priority. thought i'd seen it all. ♪

the man himself is joining us live from cleveland. he is out of the basement where tonight's draft will take place. good morning, commissioner. thank you for joining us. >> good morning, stra. >> good morning. >> my pleasure. glad to be here. >> we are happy that you're here and we're happy that it's draft day, a lot of excitement out there. last year you did it from the basement. but this year, you're back on stage and you will announce picks on stage but brought something from home, which you're sitting in right now, you brought the chair from your basement. why did you do that? >> i did. you know, i got used to it last year. it was fun to have it and a lot of people said let's bring it back so we'll have a fan sitting in it tonight. it should be fun. >> something else that's back, the fans, 50,000 fans at different draft locations will be present to watch this go down so how important was it for you to mak the draft as big as it's been in the past? >> well, michael, you know, the thing we miss the most from the
7:42 am
2020 season, whether it's a draft or our entire season and the postseason super bowl were fans. we all felt the lack of energy without the fans, so this year i think we're going to be able to have the energy of our fans and having them back which they love being here and being a part of this draft. and then, we're going to be able to combine it with a lot of technology and some of the things we did to give people and our fans an inside view of our players, of the coaches, of the general managers and the inside of access that people really want from the nfl. >> i love seeing that backstage access. as a player you don't see that. one big tradition, fans greet you with boos when you walk onto the stage. i know you missed it last year with the virtual boos it didn't feel the same. are you looking forward to getting booed in person tonight? >> it's a lot better in person, i will tell you, i had someone named michael strahan booing me
7:43 am
last year. >> i enjoyed it. >> when you walk out on the stage and you feel that, it's great because it's just the fans being a part of the event which is really become a tradition and i love it so i can't wait. >> and this is one of the biggest moments in these players' lives. last year we didn't get their big reactions when they heard their names called with the crowd cheering for them and we missed the famous hugs. it's going to be different this year, so tell me about that. >> well, you know, this moment, michael, you know it, you were drafted back in '93. you know, you work so hard for this opportunity. and your dream comes true and it's an emotional moment. and it's a real privilege for me to be there and experience it with that young man and his family and to be able to see him start his career in the nfl. so whatever happens at that moment is really up to that young man and how he feels at that particular moment but it's really maybe a little bit of
7:44 am
relief, excitement because as you know the anxiety building up to this as you wait to figure out what team you're going to play for in the nfl is tough on these kids and so this is a great moment for them tonight. >> and i'm sure when they hug you, you can feel the relief or shaking they're doing at that moment because they're full of emotion. let's talk about what happens next year or next for these players and all of the nfl for that matter. in 2020 five games postponed, ten gamed were moved but none were cancelled, and even with 600 players and staff testing positive, that's pretty amazing so were you satisfied with how the season went last year? >> i really was, michael. i don't think there are too many people who thought we could play a full season on time and that really was something that we were focused on but i tell you i give so much credit to our players and our coaches and our medical experts to come up with the protocols, to apply the
7:45 am
protocols, to adapt the protocols, and all of us had to adjust. we were dealing in uncertainty and they did it but most importantly, our teams played at the highest level. as you know, the competition last year was extraordinary. we had record scoring, we had record competitiveness of our games, and that's tough to do in the environment that they were dealing with, so, obviously, we're prepared to do this again next year. we think that the environment is going to be a lot different, the protocols will be different but we think the same quality football will be out there. >> and that's what we're hoping for. this year it's mandatory for staff to get vaccinated. what led to that decision and do you think it should be the same for the players to get vaccinated as well? >> you know, michael, for us, we're encouraging everybody to get vaccinated. i've been vaccinated. we just think it's the safest thing you can do for yourself and your family and, of course, those around you. and so we had tiers last year where no one was allowed to be involved with the actual players unless you were actually tested
7:46 am
on a regular basis. that will continue this year but all of those 150 people will need be to vaccinated so the players are safe and make sure that we do everything to ensure their safety. >> well, roger, good luck tonight. get ready for those hugs and hopefully you loosen up. those guys are strong when they're excited, man, so be careful. >> i will. i will. thank you, michael. >> all right, thank you. that chair looks pretty comfortable. you can see the first round of the 2021 nfl draft tonight at 8:00 p.m. eastern right here on abc and, of course, on espn. robin. >> what do you remember most about being drafted? >> the big subway sandwich we had to feed like 12 people and the second -- the second that it was over i went to sleep. i was exhausted. >> no kidding. >> yeah. >> you were able to sleep? >> i was too tired not to, george. we'll be back. >> we'll be back. uy this plant at walmart, they can buy more plants from metrolina greenhouses
