tv   New Day With Alisyn Camerota and John Berman  CNN  May 28, 2020 2:59am-4:00am PDT

2:59 am
this is cnn breaking news. welcome to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. this is "new day." it's thursday, may 28th. 6:00 here in new york. we have breaking news that we watched unfold over the last few hours and it is still developing now. a painful night in minneapolis in the middle of a heartbreaking moment for america. fires are burning in minneapolis at this moment after protestors took to the streets demanding justice for george floyd, unarmed, handcuffed black man who died after pleading that he couldn't breathe to a police officer who had a the city's mayor is urging
3:00 am
people to leave the area. he's urged them to call in the national guard. he's calling for the arrest of the officer to caused the death and that officer to be charged. they're using rubber bullets to disperse the crowds overnight. at least one man is dead. he was shot and killed outside of a pawnshop near the demonstration. as for the developments in coronavirus, this morning, the silence is deafening from the president of the united states as the death toll surpasses 100,000. there was no public reaction, no national moment of grief and mourning for the 100,000 lives lost in less than three months. but we begin this morning with the breaking news in minneapolis. cnn's omar jimenez is live on the scene. what's the situation on the ground, omar?
3:01 am
>> reporter: things evolved quickly. this is what parts of minneapolis are waking up to. this is less than a block away from the police precinct that has been sort of the central point of these protests in the death of george floyd. when we first got to the scene, this construction building, seemed to be under construction when we got here, was completely engulfed in flames. this is a plastic company as we understand. that developed over the course of an hour and a half. we first got here, it was smoking. now all the glass is shattered. you see the flames billowing off the top. these are the i am ajts that minnesotans are waking up to as we see the tail end of what has been two days in a row of protests over how the death of george floyd unfolded and how it has been handled since. the central point in all of this is that the family, the citizens and now the mayor of minneapolis
3:02 am
want for more than just these police officers to be fired. they want criminal charges to be filed. >> for a second night in a row -- >> tonight was a different night of protesting than it was the night before. >> minnesotans take to the streets over the death of one of their own, george floyd. the protests turning dangerous overnight. fires burning on streets. local firefighters rushed to extinguish this billowing fire. flash bangs and fireworks rang out in the streets well into the night. some taking advantage, looting a local target and clashing in the streets with police. emblematic of a pain felt in this community and beyond over how in a matter of minutes the father of two went from pleading for help to what eventually became an eternal silence.
3:03 am
>> i can't breathe, i want my mama and i'm coming to find out that this man died two years to the day his mom died. like something needs to be done. something needs to be done. >> williams said none of the officers listened to his pleas. >> i've been asking myself that question, why is the officer that killed george floyd not in jail right now? and i can't answer that question. >> newly released records show when medics got to the scene, they were working on a, quote, unresponsive pulseless male. floyd was declared dead at a hospital later on. the circumstances that led to
3:04 am
the situation, -- criminal charges that include the officer who show the man on video restraining him with his knee. the police officer federation of minneapolis say the officers are cooperating with the investigation. the floyd family wants murder charges to be filed. >> it hurts me that another black family going through this nonsense. >> within the community, the pain persists. >> as a black community, as a family, we got to make a change, bro. >> reporter: in this, again, as we're seeing these images unfold, we know that at least one person was shot and killed. we know that from police. under what circumstances, they're still investigating, including the allegation that we have seen that it came from a pawnshop owner in the midst of
3:05 am
looting. again, these were protests that begin largely peaceful that as we got into the nighttime and overnight hours devolved into looting, rioting and building on fire that we're waking up and the images that people are waking up to. there's a lot of pain in this community, as we're seeing and places across the country as well. especially in the black community. left wondering, the name is george floyd, they're left wondering not if another incident like this will happen, but when. john? >> omar jimenez, thank you for being with us. keep us posted. we'll come back to you throughout the morning as this story continues to develop. joining us now bacarri sellers and james gallonian i. he's a retired fbi special agent. bacarri, you wrote being black in america is almost a perpetual state of grieving. if you will, i want you to
3:06 am
reflect on what you're seeing this morning and also what you're feeling this morning. >> well, it's tough. i mean, i think you can dust off a shirt that we had six years ago with eric garner that i can't breathe and use it again today. before we go down a path of blaming these people who are filled with pain, dr. king called rioting the language of the unheard. there's no other way that many people feel that they can hash out this pain because of the pain we feel so often. john, it's every single day it seems that we have a brianna taylor, that we have an ahmaud arbery. it goes back to emmitt till, goes back to the four little girls in birmingham, walter scott, i could sit here all day
3:07 am
and call names out of unarmed black men out of the hands of law enforcement. this man cooperated. george cooperated. [ inaudible ] it's not -- let me tell you one thing about these law enforcement officers. i have respect for law enforcement. uniquely enough, my father was shot by law enforcement. i had a unique and interesting reels ship with law enforcement. but you cannot tell me that they saw george as being human. that's the problem we have in this country that many people of color, many black men are looked at as something as less than human. if they want us to stop rioting, john, then they have to stop killing us. >> from the police perspective and law enforcement perspective, what's taking so long? i mean, why -- we all saw this
3:08 am
with our own eyes. obviously, there's other video that maybe the prosecutor is privy to that we are not, but we didn't see george floyd resisting, we did see the crowd begging for that police officer to get his knee off of george floyd's neck. we did see that he didn't take it off his neck for at least five minutes. so from -- you've done this so many times, what more needs to be investigated before charges can be leveled? >> sure. alisyn, a couple of points here. first of all, i'm going to piggyback on to what bacarr bac said. >> you can't condone, sanction or support or provide cover for what took place in minneapolis. full stop. those police officers are going to rightly face charges. the fbi is involved. there's a civil rights case initiated right now. they're going to look into whether or not the minneapolis
3:09 am
police department officers willfully deprived george floyd of his rights and constitutions. the right to breathe and the right to exist. he nailed it. he was no threat to those officers. once a police officer has a suspect and he was a suspect in a forgery case. he wasn't a violent criminal. once they had him proned out, handcuffed behind the back, that's where it ends. the bell has rung. you now have that person's safety and health in your hands. that did not occur. one last thing, i just want to adhere. i'm not defending these police officers. there's no way to do it. police have about 250 million interactions with the public every year. about 1,000 people are fatally shot by police every year. somewhere around 30 or 40 or 50 are considered unarmed. it's an infin tis mal amount of those that are bad shoots.
3:10 am
this wasn't a shooting. but i guarantee you, these officers will be brought up on murder charges. >> bakari, i know the issue runs deeper than this, though, this season we now know if you're black you can't necessarily safely go for a jog in america. if you're black, there are questions if you bird watch in america. if you're black, you can't safely comply with police during an arrest in america. at least not according to the video we're seeing now. you quoted dr. martin luther king, riot is the language of the unheard. what we don't often ask, though, is what isn't being heard and more importantly, why, why isn't it being heard? >> well, you have these communities that are being ravaged by injustices and right now, not only do you have injustices plaguing these black and brown communities, but you overlay them with the pandemic and let me just say that racism
3:11 am
and implicit bias didn't start when donald trump inherited the white house. this is something we have to look into the soul of our country. i don't want -- you have people living in an environment where they're suffering from educational and economic injustic injustices. you look at a situation where i'm not sure that people understand the correlation between what happened with amy cooper in the park of the bird watcher, with the bird watcher and what's watching in minneapolis. let me draw that direct line for you. there was a young lady who once lied on emmitt till and he found himself on the bottom of the mississippi river. those memories are fond in the m -- i'm going to lie on you and call law enforcement and subject you to whatever may happen.
3:12 am
you think about that. you think about the danger she put this man in and then you look at what happened when -- in minneapolis when george was complying. you look at the fact and this is why i appreciate our guest this morning because there is no justification for this. we can speak out and what many people, what many americans view as it being on the opposite side. we're really not. we're both on the side of justice. they killed him like a dog. that imagery is sticking out to us all. they put their knee in the back of his head. he was yelling for his mother. a grown black man on the ground. that would not happen. this is a dangerous statement to make. but i find it to be true. that would not have happened to a white man in today's america. but it did happen to george. i'm not making everything about race. but i'm saying we have a race issue in this country.
3:13 am
we have an issue where people of color are not given the benefit of humanity. we've been screaming about issues like this. we keep seeing issues of us being killed on camera from brianna taylor to ahmaud arbery and now george in minneapolis. >> the mayor of minneapolis wants to know why there aren't charges yet. let me play a little bit, one moment of the mayor. >> the officer who had his knee on the neck of george floyd should be charged. i'm calling on hennepin county attorney to do it. >> george, here's what the hennepin county attorney has said. we're working with the minnesota bureau of criminal apprehension add the medical examiner to expeditiously gather and review all of the evidence in this tragic death of mr. george floyd. the videotaped death of mr.
3:14 am
floyd which has outraged us and people across the country deserves the best we can give and this is what this office will do. that kind of language, it sounds like he's inclined to charge, i mean, do you think that something will happen today? have they had enough time now to level charges? >> well, first of all, politicians have to be ultra-careful. we're sitting on a tinderbox now. we remember six summers ago, the summer of ferguson, the last thing we want to do is pour kerosene on anything. we want, we demand, we deserve swift justice in this country. we've come down on different sides of officer involved shootings or deaths in police custody. we are firmly on the same side oon this one. i am confident the system is
3:15 am
going to work here. i know people don't want platitudes, they don't want bromides. it's coming. unfortunately, it's the way the system works. three ways that this can happen. a complaint can be filed. an information can be filed or a grand jury is impanelled and a grand jury will hear the evidence. i think that's what happens here. the state or the federal level, i'm confident, i'm going out on a limb here to suggest these officers will be indicted, they will face justice. but alisyn, they're entitled to due process and sometimes that takes time. >> all right. james, bakari. stand by for us. obviously, there's a lot going on. you have a book out. my vanishing country which covers so many of these issues. it's shocking but not surprising, that a week after your book comes out discussing this, we have yet another example of a reason to mourn.
3:16 am
so 100,000 american lives lost and not a word from president trump about it overnight. why? as homes become schools. at&t has created a $10 million dollar fund to help educators and families keep school in session. because the key to keeping kids learning, is keeping kids connected. hi. uh, can you tell me how to get to i-70, please? o-okay, are you -- ah, yes. thank you. switch to progressive and you can save hundreds. you know, like the sign says.
3:17 am
can match the power of energizer. because energizer ultimate lithium is the longest lasting aa battery in the world. [confetti cannon popping] energizer. backed by science. matched by no one. truly transformative sleep. so, no more tossing and turning. because only tempur-pedic adapts

and responds to your body... you get deep, uninterrupted sleep. during the tempur-pedic summer of sleep, all tempur-pedic mattresses are on sale!
3:19 am
during the tempur-pedic summer of sleep, whether it's bribes ...or an overdue makeover.

get all your pet essentials right when you need them, with curbside pickup at petsmart. just order online, drive up, check-in, and pick up. by coronavirus. stories that ended too soon. that milestone met with no reaction from the president of the united states. brynn gingras is live with more. brynn? >> reporter: alisyn, as you said, every death has a name, has a story, has a family and of course, new york really knows the impact of that larger number. more than 16,000 deaths in new york city alone. the numbers are going in the right direction now. they're continuing to improve. that's not the case across the country, particularly in the
3:21 am
southeast. this as major entertainment venues are getting ready to also reopen. a heartbreaking milestone in the united states marking over 100,000 lives reported lost to the coronavirus according to johns hopkins university. >> we can never let it become abstract. we have got to remember that these are precious human lives. we've got to remember that they lived, that they had extraordinary lives that, they leave behind family and friends who will never forget the impact they had. >> president trump silent on the staggering toll. >> joe biden sending a message. >> all of you grieving so badly, i'm so sorry for your loss. >> it's been over three months since the disease began gripping this nursing home in washington state and overwhelming hospitals in cities across the nation. now all 50 states are undergoing rollbacks of social distancing
3:22 am
restrictions. while 16 are still seeing increases in confirmed cases. dr. anthony fauci warning a second wave could happen if people do not change behaviors. >> we have situations in which you see that type of crowding with no masks and people interacting. that's inviting a situation that could get out of control. >> in california, retail stores are reopened for shopping. the mayor warning we -- >> we can't go crazy or we know it can get out of hand in our city and our region. we could be back to square one. >> the las vegas strip will soon welcome back -- >> entertainment properties welcome back june 4th. in orlando seaworld opening june
3:23 am
11 pt. theme parks opening july 11th at reduced capacity. no fireworks, parades or character greetings for now and guests will be required to get temperature checks, practice social distancing and wear facial coverings. >> i think that's really going to be part of the contract of coming to walt disney world in any capacity. we're going to enforce that rule. it's for everybody's safety. >> the nation's top infectious doctor endorsing wearing masks as more and more americans re-enter society. >> it's sort of respect for another person and have that other person respect you. you wear a mask, you wear a mask. you protect each other. it's a symbol for people to see that that's the kind of thing you should be doing. >> of course, we'll wait this morning to see if there are any remarks from the white house as we have reached this staggering death toll here in the country. in new york city, we're weeks away from reopening from the phase one. the mayor says he's already having conversations with businesses to get ready for
3:24 am
this. particularly with restaurants who will get to reopen in phase 2, which of course will bring a lot of life back to the city that has literally been sleeping. alisyn? >> thank you very much for that report. joining us now cnn political correspondent abby phillips and dr. ali kan at the cdc. he's currently the dean of the college of public health at the university of nebraska medical center. great to have both of you. abby, president trump was silent yesterday as we hit this milestone. we knew it was coming. the number 100,000 is actually almost impossible to get your head around. i mean, it's almost impossible to think of those -- of 100,000 as each separate life and of the toll that coronavirus has taken on the country. yet, the president was more interested, it seemed, yesterday in the fact that twitter was
3:25 am
going to fact check him. he contributed more time into that. he has a very hard time with empathy. remember that time when he was meeting with the families of gun violence and the camera caught his handwritten notes as like a prod what he was supposed to say to them. i hear you. it didn't come naturally. why do we have any reporting on what was going on inside the white house and why he won't acknowledge this? >> the white house, i think, people in the white house understand that this is not the president's strong suit. i think some of them would argue that in one-on-one settings, he can express this empathy behind the scenes privately. when it comes to his public demeanor, he has always struggled with this. particularly with the coronavirus. the president has been obsessed with this idea of credit and bla blame. even early in the pandemic, he
3:26 am
publicly said that he did not want, for example to bring some americans off cruise ships who had been struck by the coronavirus because he was concerned it would raise the case numbers in the united states. when the president thinks about this 100,000 number, he always talks about it and then immediately says, well it could have been 1 million or it could have been 2 million. for the families of 100,000 people in the country, americans who have lost someone, every single one of those lives matters and it doesn't matter whether it could have been one or two million. that seems to be all the president is focused on. you saw yesterday he's tweeting about the number of tests conducted in the united states. that's great. that's important. but many of the tests came far too late to save far too many lives. >> the most important number is always wuchblt the one person
3:27 am
you know that you love that may have been lost to coronavirus. keep that in mind. dr. kahn, it's american phenomenon. in south korea, reported its sustained day -- the death toll there is in the hundreds. it's smaller, it's smaller but it is not that much smaller. so why? what decisions were made? what went wrong in the united states that led to this enormous death toll? >> correct. there was a different level of response in not just south korea, but south korea, new zealand, china, taiwan, hong kong. they had a much more robust response. they decided they were going to contain the virus. they had lots of diagnostic testing. they had quarantined the contacts, they kept down the
3:28 am
case numbers and the deaths. unfortunately, we never took that approach originally. to be honest with you, the biggest number that's important to me is 20,000. we still have 20,000 cases a day. we're still having that many a day. >> the numbers when you frame it like thab are jaw-dropping. >> former vice president joe biden stepped in to, i guess, what he felt like was a vacuum of empathy yesterday. he tried to console the country. here is his statement. >> to all of you who are hurting so badly, i'm so sorry for your loss. i know there's nothing i or anyone else can say or do to dull the sharpness of the pain you feel right now. i can promise you from experience, the day will come in the memory of your loved one will bring a smile to your lips
3:29 am
before it brings a tear to your eyes. >> abby, sometimes the white house is reactive instead of proactive and so when they hear people criticize them for not saying anything yesterday for that milestone, do we expect anything today? >> well, it's not clear. but i do think the white house was -- they will say that their metrics, the numbers they use to count deaths did not arrive at that 100,000 number at the same time that the metrics that we at cnn uses and others use. we could expect to see more from the president today. but i also, when you watch that video from biden, a lot of people have been criticizing him for being in his basement and doing those videos, not being out and about as much as the president has. when the campaign sees this, they see an opportunity to really selectively draw contrast
3:30 am
with the president. biden is someone who -- for whom this is his strong suit. he suffered a number of enormous losses over the course of his life. his wife, his children and so empathy is something that comes easy for him. offering condolences and guiding people through grief and tragedy is something that comes easy for him. i think his campaign sees this as one of those clear opportunities for him to not just be firing back at the president all the time but to really pick his moments, frankly. and draw those contrasts for the american public at a time like this. >> abby phillip, dr. ali kahn. thank you for being with us. we're continuing to follow breaking news. these are live pictures of police in riot gear. you can see protesters trying to speak to them, which is on the south side, we're told of ma
3:31 am
minneapolis. there have been fires burning, you can see that in the background behind this police line. minneapolis is in turmoil this morning. we have the latest for you as people demand justice for george floyd. breaking details and a live report next. how about no we have the latest for you as come on, no no n-n-n-no-no only discover has no annual fee on any card. you've been avoiding. like people... and pants.ings but don't avoid taking care of your eyes, because we're here to safely serve you with new procedures that exceed cdc guidelines and value your time. visionworks. see the difference.

3:35 am
these are pictures from moments ago. the south side of minneapolis. you can see police in riot gear. there's a building burning behind them. this follows a night of protests over the death of george floyd, the unarmed black man who died pleading that he couldn't breathe with a police officer's knee in his neck. this has all been unfolding where we have our reporter omar jimenez. he's live on the scene.
3:36 am
omar, give us a sense of what you've been seeing there. >> reporter: john, minneapolis is waking up to part of its city on fire this morning. you can see it over my shoulder. just to my left here. this is what used to be a wendy's. how do i know that? because my crew and i ate here just two nights ago at the end of the day covering these protests. days later, completely in ruins and on fire. likely in the process of protests that gave way to riots. as you walk over this way, you can see the scales of the flames here and the scale of the damage that has occurred as a side effect of these protests that gave way to riots. this building was a construction structure. you can see the smoke billowing up into the air. the fire crews are here trying to get a hold on it. but, again, you look at the magnitude of these flames and how quickly they went up over the course of two hours or so is
3:37 am
when my crew got here in the early morning hours and saw this explode before our eyes. this is a reality of what this has turned into. the central point in this. i want to give you context as we turn this way. over in this direction is a target and a parking lot that lies across the street from the minneapolis police third precinct which has been the central point of these protests. why? because it has stemmed from how the death of george floyd initiated and happened and the circumstances around it that was observed in the awful cell phone video that we've seen circulate and how it's handled since. in regards to the disciplinary action for these officers, the police department acted pretty quickly. fires them within 24 hours. but the family, protesters and even the mayor of minneapolis saying that's not enough. they want charges filed against these officers. the mayor going as far as to wonder why at least the
3:38 am
arresting officer is not behind bars right now. now, an investigation is continuing to play out at the fbi level and at the state level as well, trying to gather information. as you can see, the people here, there's a lot of anger in this community as we have seen in places across this country, again over how this is handled. today, thursday morning, minneapolis is waking up to the manifestation of that anger with part of its city on fire. alisyn? >> omar, the backdrop behind you is just stunning. thank you for being on the ground for us. stay safe, we'll check back with you many, many times throughout the hour. now, to international news. also breaking overnight. china proving a choefr shal national security law in hong kong. anna koren is live with the breaking details. anna? >> reporter: alisyn, this basically means that dissent and any unrest in hong kong will be crushed by china.
3:39 am
freedom is speech is something that separated hong kong from the mainland under this new national security law approved by the national legal congress in beijing this afternoon. that means that subversion, treason, terrorism, foreign interference will be banned here in hong kong. we heard at the end of the meeting and he said, quote, this will protect hong kong's long-term civility. u.s. secretary of state mike pompeo strongly disagrees saying this decision is disastrous. he says that it concerns -- hong kong is no longer autonomous from china, which of course is to maintain the trade status with the united states. does this mean sanctions for officials here in hong kong for official this is china? we don't know.
3:40 am
you would have to assume that the economic trade relationship with hong kong for many, many years -- we're expecting further word from the united states in the coming days. but we heard from lawmakers, alisyn, and they say this signals a death nell for hong kong. this is the end of hong kong as we know it and other lawmakers say they have taken away -- that hong kong is another mainland chinese city. what does this mean for the protesters turning out voicing opposition? they're concerned at this national security law. it means they're going to be arrested. if yesterday is any indication. 360 people arrested. they're chanting slogans, alisyn. this is what people are arrested for. you can't even say free hong kong in hong kong anymore. there is fear, there is a sense of resignation. but the anger is palpable.
3:41 am
those who are going to continue to fight for their freedoms say that this is the only thing they can do. they are going to fight for the freedoms they've loved and enjoy. >> that is a huge development with all sorts of repercussions. anna coren, thank you very much for the reporting. now to economic news. boeing forced to fire thousands of workers as more layoffs are expected. we'll preview the unemployment report next. there he is. oh, wow. you're doing, uh, you're doing really great with the twirling. dad, if you want to talk, i have a break at 3:00. okay, okay. i'm going. i'm gone. like -- like i wasn't here. [ horn honks ] keep -- keep doing it, buddy. switch to progressive and you can save hundreds. you know, like the sign says. switch to progressive and you can save hundreds. whether it's bribes ...or an overdue makeover.

3:45 am
the government will release the unemployment numbers. joining me now christine romans. romans, what do we expect. >> it's been a really terrible ten weeks. that will bring us to 40 million. 40 million layoffs or furloughs over the past two and a half months. something we've never seen before. of those people who are being laid off, of course, when they finally get their first jobless benefits check, there's an extra
3:46 am
$600. to try to at least bridge this gap here. this time right now of a crater in the u.s. economy. that all runs out at the end of july. so maybe another 2, 2.1 million layoffs in the week. that would bring the grand total over the past ten weeks to 40 million, john. >> christine romans for us. keep us posted. in the meantime, latin america is the epicenter of the pandemic. with cases exploding, including a new high in the number of deaths. we have a live report, next. i don't keep track of regrets and i don't add up the years, but what i do count on... is boost high protein... and now, there's boost mobility... ...with key nutrients to help support... joints, muscles, and bones. try boost mobility, with added collagen.

3:51 am
were watching what was happening in china and europe and wondering if that kind of an outbreak could potentially happen in this region and it turns out all we needed to do was wait. as the coronavirus sweeps around the world, the eye of this storm has landed on latin america. describe the pandemic in latin america. >> the epicenter of the pandemic now. >> death rates in many latin american countries are already on the rise while the average seven-day death toll are headed down, in brazil, mexico and peru, the death tolls are spiking. why latin america and why now? >> start with brazil, with 410,000 confirmed cases, the second highest in the world behind the u.s. bolsonaro has all but ignored this and attends rallies. many disagree.
