>> hello, and welcome to our viewers from the united states and all around. you are watching cnn newsroom. just ahead, he was president joe biden laying out a new asia trade park, aimed at squeezing china's influence in the region. more than 100 cases of monkeypox being spread around the world. we will see what the symptoms are and how concerned you should be. playing in georgia. if the polls arrived to make a deal for her president trump's biggest political defeat so far this year. >> live from cnn, this is "cnn
newsroom". >> interview with us. when we begin in japan, where u.s. president joe biden is making a hard push for strengthening economic alliances as he tackles the second leg of a high-stakes diplomatic tour in asia. just moments ago, mr. biden wrapped up a meeting with japanese prime minister -- during their meeting, he endorsed japan's plan to bolster its defense capabilities. as a keeps a wary eye on -- two leaders also affirmed their commitment to the indo pacific economic framework. a plan mr. biden is set to unveil in a little over an hour from now. >> this framework is a commitment to working with our close friends and partners from the region on challenges that matter most concerning economic -- by improving security and trust in the digital economy.
protecting workers, trends in the supply chains in tackling corruption that robs nations of their ability to serve as citizens. >> mr. biden will bring a similar message about economic cooperation to a meeting of the quad alliance on tuesday, where he will speak with leaders from japan, india, and australia. is cnn is covering this story from every angle. -- standing by in tokyo. good to see you both. kevin, let's start with you. president biden and -- to issue a joint statement. the aim and thrust of it all is to keep china's -- in check. >> yeah, i think that the president struck on a very important and newsworthy moment in that press conference related to china when he was asked by a reporter if the
united states would intervene militarily if china were able to invade taiwan. and he answered with one word. yes. he was followed up with that. he said the u.s. had made commitments to do that. now, to be clear, they have always been ambiguous over whether he would come to taiwan's support with the united states ability to invade. it is been sort of a policy of what they call strategic ambiguity. and in the past, when president biden has made statements that seem to go beyond what the ambiguous statement is, the white house has come back to walk that back a little. so will be interesting to see what happens. now, though statements have a tendency to generate extreme anger in beijing, when the president makes them. he went on to say that he did not believe that china would invade taiwan, because they are seeing what is happening in ukraine, they are seeing the global sanctions regime that is
being applied on russia. and hopefully, that beijing would see that. and decide that something similar could happen if it took steps for taiwan. so, the president said that he did think the eventuality would come to pass, but if it did, he would intervene militarily. so, it will be interesting to see how it plays out over the rest of the day. the president just me that, in the last 10 minutes. but it is something that is not necessarily the policy of the united states. the u.s. policy is very -- the u.s. has any treaty to come to their defense in the event of an invasion. should be concerned about this spread that is happening in the united states. today, walk in that back a little. he seemed to suggest a little bit of -- didn't think it necessarily rose to the level of the covid-19 pandemic.
so the president kind of easing the concerns that he is voicing on that situation. in the united states. >> thanks for that. -- says his country's alliance was more important than ever. what else did he say? >> you know, rosemary, for japan and the united states, there is no more important friend or ally and that close partnership was clearly on display today went president joe biden and -- held their first official in person bilateral summit in that joint press conference. the leaders confirmed the close cooperation. they also have ties with momentarily and -- does not play out in this part of the world. and with that in mind, the press conference that just took
place. that ended with -- saying that japan would be joining the framework from last october. it was meant to boost economic growth by comparing -- but at this point, the jury is still out. from this economic -- is going to become a long-lasting pillar. some expects each country remains committed to making sure that china is not trying to change the status quo.
it's worth noting that a big part of that change to deter and respond to china falls on china. as a result, the rise of china's territorial -- a nuclear on -- make sure that they must do their best to protect themselves. decreasing spending from its gdp approved. within the -- constitution by developing counterstrike capability as opposed to waiting for -- decreasing its defense budget. >> all right, given -- many thanks, joining us from -- --
zelenskyy and became the first foreign leader to address ukraine's parliament in person since russia's dinghy -- invasion began. after that, announced a major deal with poland. >> a decision has been reached and that is revolutionizing -- we are introducing -- this was significantly speed of our border procedures. but it is also the beginning of our integration into the common customs space with the european union. this is a truly historical process. >> in the meantime, inside, the war rages on. at least one person was killed in a -- in the eastern part of the country, russians attacked the city of -- from multiple to push back the russian forces. still, more than 2000 houses around the city were
advantaged. says russian forces are now requiring permits for cars entering or exiting the occupied city. -- and a complete russian control last week after the surrender of the -- steel plant. one woman whose husband had been among the last offenders that the steel plant is now waiting for work on his whereabouts. -- has that story. >> as russia pummeled the -- plant with overwhelming firepower, natalia -- could only watch and pray for her husband, bhutan, inside. almost daily, she says. described the situation like --
because people had no -- and no medicine. >> weeks in, photos revealed -- was jointly us. and had dropped weight. >> he was on medicine. but he has a very strong spirit. >> reporter: he had seen many of his friends killed in fear that he s next. following his commanders order, thursday, boat on -- would lose all ability to communicate. now, with his fellow soldiers in russian custody, -- can only assume that he's at their detention center. his greatest fear now that he is being tortured, or worse. >> each -- is a lost one >> what is the last message that he typed to you? >> i love you. he was worried about his mom, but he asked me to let -- no,
that he is alive and to wait for him. >> napoleon believes that -- will give everything to stay alive. motivated by their shared desire to someday create a family. >> and this idea helps me to be strong. >> but the pain of not knowing is excruciating. the weight, heavy. as russia's attacks carry on. -- cnn, live youth. to combat its critical shortage of baby formula. coming up, the white house announces new steps to address the crisis. an outbreak of monkeypox spreading around the world. i will speak with a health expert about what you need to know about the virusus.
what's on the horizon? the answers lie beyond the roads we know. we recognize that energy demand is growing, and the world needs lower carbon solutions to keep up. at chevron, we're working to find new ways forward, through investments and partnerships in innovative solutions. like renewable natural gas from cow waste, hydrogen-fueled transportation, and carbon capture. we may not know just what lies ahead, but it's only human... to search for it.
>> relief for some american families is on the way. the white house says a second flight of baby formula will be delivered in the coming days. the first flight landed on sunday from germany as the u.s. grapples with a nationwide shortage. this was the first flight of president bidens -- to stock up on this for months. we are looking at 35 tons of prescription baby formula. agriculture, -- in this particular load, he hopes that it will be the first for many. >> this is essentially going to deliver to a distribution
server that the nestle gerber folks have and then it's going to go on trucks and it's going to be delivered in hospitals. and home healthcare clinics all across the country. providing support and help. >> and i have to point out, this is a hypoallergenic product for babies that are intolerant to cow's milk protein. there still a majority of parents in the united states are hoping to be able to stock up and to see that in their grocery shows. this will not be going to those locations. taking opportunities to speak to officials with fedex, who is a big partner in these deliveries. they say that they are already scheduling a flight from europe here to the united states, possibly later this week. and they hope that that will at least help, but begin to address the broader needs as manufacturers continue to ramp
up in this. paulo sandoval, cnn, indianapolis. >> health officials are tracking a growing outbreak of monkeypox, with a possible new case reported in the us state of florida. the world health organization says they are more than 90 confirmed cases around the world. the illness is mostly found in west and central africa. but the u.s. centers for disease control and prevention say is concerned by the rising number of cases being reported outside those regions. the white house covid-19 response coordinator tells abc news, unlike the coronavirus, monkeypox is not a mystery illness. >> i would not be surprised, martha, if we see a few more cases in the upcoming days. and i think the president is right. any time we have a disease, we should all be paying attention. but i feel like this is a virus
we understand. we have a vaccine against it. we have treatments against it. and it's spread very differently than sars covid two. it's not as contagious as covid. so i'm confident were going to be able to keep our arms around it. we're going to use the tools we have to make sure we can prevent further spread and take care of people getting infected. >> and dr. scott miscavige is the president and ceo of premier medical group and a national consultant for covid- 19 testing. thank you so much, dr. for being with us. >> hi, rosemary. >> so we just heard dr. -- saying, we will see more cases of monkeypox in the coming days. but he points out, we already know a lot about this virus. we have vaccines and treatments for. it's not as contagious as covid. so he thinks we can control this. do you agree with that assessment? >> 100% agree. and, yeah, i very much concur with what he was saying. we do know a lot about this.
this has been around since the late 1950s. and it's been a scourge in different regions in africa. and we did get ahead of this when we had so much emphasis put on getting smallpox out. some of the vaccines and some of the treatments we have can crossover. and so, there has been enough research to keep us up-to-date on this, for sure. >> you mention that, because monkeypox actually does come from the same family of viruses as smallpox, with similar symptoms. for those of us who remember lining up at school, to get our smallpox shots, anything with the word pox at the end tends to be a little unnerving. so how different is monkeypox to smallpox and how does it actually spread? >> well, the good news about the spread is, it's not like covid, where you have just miniature respiratory droplets. you could be within 6-10 feet to get it. you need very large respiratory
droplets to get it from that standpoint. but that's not really worth spread. it's mostly spread by direct contact. so, it's a fluid contact. it's contact from sheets, hands. if somebody has those big bumps, and those big vesicles and that fluid, is seeping, that's where you get it from there. no, very important to highlight. it is sexually transmitted. we have contract -- contact tracing and one of the reasons we may be seeing the spread, we have had a significant increase in sexually transmitted diseases through covid. the public health resources have been shifted away from that to fight covid. so, that may be a little reason we are seeing an increase in push right now. >> was symptoms should people look out for if they think or fear they may have had contact with somebody with monkeypox. >> you're going to get first of all, just feeling lousy.
are usually going to get fever, you're going to get achiness. are going to get fatigued. now, those symptoms will occur 2 days before you start breaking up with those vesicles. the vesicles will usually be more in the face and then they will travel down up the next, and the upper body. and they are pretty big, blustery lesions that you will get quite a bit of. you also get big swollen left -- lymph glands. so notice and nothing you're going to get a lot of coughing or congestion. so those are the symptoms. now, the good news about monkeypox is, that is not quite as fetal. 3.6% fatality that once again focuses on immunosuppressed very young, and people that are a little bit older. but, you know, you just have
to, the main thing with this, you're going to be looking for those vesicles at this point. >> and you mentioned, that the origin is west and central africa. but why do you think we are appearing to be seeing more viruses jump from animals to humans? is not just optics? has that always happened? or is that something that's increasingly happened, do you think? >> it's always happened, but you know, we are just not aware of it. in the world is well aware of this. now, we had a major, what i would call major monkeypox spread when there were illegal animals that were transported into the united states. in 2002 or so. and this has been spreading, as have other things. but we are just learning, we are on top of this. were almost still aware.
thank you so much for joining is always. >> nice talking to you, rosemary. >> in china, 7 beijing districts were put under partial covid walked on saturday. this means that nearly 14 million people will be required to work from home, according to the municipal government. people who have to go to the office for work will be required to show a negative pcr test within 48 hours or nonessential businesses in the affected districts, like shopping malls and districts. >> another high-stakes primary election is coming up on -- this time in georgia. how much power donald trump still has for the republican party. that's ahead. >> plus, there could be ntc that the upcoming summit of the americas. why the mexican president insists the u.s. puts everyone on the guest list.
you can framebridge just about anything. framebridge. live life, frame more. do we have any more paper towels? yep! check the pantry. i just ordered from boxed. what's boxed? boxed is the only wholesale club that lets you tap into the value of buying in bulk online. is that right?! but unlike other wholesale clubs and online stores, boxed has no membership fees. and delivery is super fast. and look! free samples.
>> primary elections in 5 u.s. dates are just over a day away. but i high-stakes contest in georgia has gone the spotlight. david perdue, in the hand- picked candidate for president donald trump. he seems poised to deal with trump, his biggest political jiffy this year. meantime, the winner of -- primary is out of the hospital after suffering a stroke. lieutenant governor -- will not recuperate at home. but he doesn't know who his opponent will be. and that is because ballots are still being counted in the republican primary. trump endorsed candidate --
leads businessmen -- by less than 1100 votes. an automatic recount is likely there. for more on all of this, let's bring in ron brownstein. he's senior editor for the atlantic, joining us now from los angeles. always great to have you with us. >> all right, so donald trump wanted to punish george's republican governor, brian kemp for his refusal of the election results. but now, it appears that david perdue is heading for defeat. trump appears to have abandoned him at this stage. how much damage could this have on trump's kingmaker power, do you think? >> this would be the biggest disappointment of the primary season, in all likelihood. there was no one, as he noted that he wanted to be more than the republican government. who he felt, acted inappropriately, by upholding the law and certifying joe
biden's victory in that swing state in 2020. but the candidate that he chose to run against, that he basically hand-picked to run against -- david perdue has been totally lackluster. he's been kind of a campaigner without much energy. he has not raised a lot of money. there really is not a case against him in georgia except for trump's -- so it's meant to be a disappointment. but it's, i think as we talked about last week, it's a mistake to read any individual race as a sign that trump's hold is loosening. is the ability of any individual to win every race they endorse has simply never existed. into b, the broader direction that is clear is that there really aren't candidates running away from trump is them. whatever happens to trump's own personal win, loss.
>> they seem to like chum, but they don't want him to tell them how to go. this seems to be how it's going. so, the other race to watch in georgia is of course, the one for secretary of state. a true test of trump's endorsement power. he targeted -- because he refused to be pressured into overturning the election. so, how well trump endorsed candidate -- likely go up against roethlisberger. what are the ramifications for the state, and indeed the nation with this particular race? >> this race is indicative of something big and broad. and ominous, frankly, that is steaming toward the country is steaming towards it, almost like the titanic towards the icebergs on its maiden voyage. you have in georgia, one of many races. in fact, in virtually every state that is likely to decide the 2024 election, you have republicans running for positions of authority over the administration coming in the tabulation of that election,
either secretary of state, or attorney general, or governor, who are advocates of trump's big lie. and are echoing his conspiracy theories about 2020. i mean, you already have republicans who are election deniers. who were nominated for attorney general and secretary of state in michigan. in minnesota. obviously, the gubernatorial nominee. there are more on top in states like colorado and nevada, and arizona. and wisconsin. in georgia is really white at the forefront of this. became a nationally known figure. a conservative republican who has defended the laws, restricting access to voting in georgia. making him nationally known because he simply would not give him the -- to overturn the state. jody -- has said that he found nothing wrong with that hold,
where trump asked roethlisberger to find him 10,000 plus votes. and he said that if the election was fair, donald trump would have won a georgia. there's an excellent chance that high school -- forced them. because you need to 50% to get over the top. in georgia. it if he does get to a runoff, without the top of the ticket, the visibility that -- has. roethlisberger could be very vulnerable. 1 of many states. virtually every state, likely to decide the 2024 presidential election. republicans seeking positions of control over that election, who are having these -- charging me. right at the front of that list. >> it is quite terrifying, really. and of course, trumps big -- is looking for a place to come out on top by tuesday. the senate primary. if he wins, how would he likely
fair up against democratic senator --? >> this is going to be one of the races that decides at all for this and it. and i think on kind of a personal comparison, warnock is a much more effective and compelling candidate. walker is a celebrity in the state. with the university of georgia. the 1980s. and of course, he played, less well-known is that he played for donald trump's own team. in the short-lived united u.s. -- his personal life, his business grew. he is not fluent on issues. recently, just in the last week, he said he supports no selections. in a wave year, there are a lot of candidates that have no business winning in a win. this is going to be a test for
democrats. moving it out of a similar red, blue, check the box that it national level. >> and of course, early voter turnout. that's been huge in georgia. >> this comes as president bidens approval has dipped. baby formula shortages, abortion concerns. and of course, the midterms fastly approaching, how bad it could this be for mr. biden, do you think? >> it could be very about it. historically, the midterm election, the first midterm election is tough on the
president's party. especially in house races. republicans will need to win 5 seats. we talked about this before. only 4 midterm elections since our civil war, 150 years ago, with the party out of the white house has not won at least 5 seats. and when the president is illuminating, traditionally, the numbers have been even worse. the rallying cry for the party in the white house, we are going to make this a referendum, a choice. not a referendum. up and down, obviously, democrats are going to have a very rough election. the democratic hope is that they either get -- or get more voters to focus on the water dimensions of what republican governments would be. and in that latter part of the effort, the potentially biggest club that they have for more the biggest asset that they have going for them would be if this republican nominated supreme court overturns the right to abortion that has existed for about 50 years in the us, that is have the potential to change the mix of
who turns out in the midterm. and who turns out in the midterm is historically the biggest problem for the president's party. not surprisingly, it's usually more -- devote. in a clear-cut decision, changing that dynamic possibly. but as he said, there are a lot of other headwinds in the way. in inflation and -- kind of sagging confidence. >> so many challenges. ron brownstein, joining us from los angeles. manyhanks, always. >> will once e president returns from his -you will begin preparg for the -- the meeting is meant to in constructive conversations. with growing tensions, it's unclear which, if any will show up. paic-- has our report.
>> it was at t summer of the eras in panama, 2015 that first sat down with -- ma >> this is the sheetolicy. in 2015, the -- was not invited. in the region, led to the change. >> in 2018, cuban returned to the warm welcome fm the u.s. the trump ministration resolved -- d reimposed toh economic sanctions. retired mmunis floor ministers rebuttal. now, thereay not be in invite atll. for --ext moh's of is hoing.

there doesn't appear to be a diplomatic breakthrough on t diplomatic impas. >> that mexico will attend this --nd well, athey have had,list. >> the guest list is not finalized. hopefully, that willappen to them. i prome, what we -- oncee have it, we will share. the president is optimistic. don't have anything to share the moment. once we have it, wwill be happy to sha with all of you. >> leftist governments have al threatened to boycott the summ. of brazil, who has trained rted might skip t summit. >> in guatemala's president also said if invited, he is t going after the u.s. police sanctions from the -- for allegations of corruption. >> behind the scenes, trying t --nd save the summit's unity. there is little to be found.

>> an update now on u.s. esent joe biden's asia trip. the whe use responding a short time ago saying u.s. policy has not changed regarding chinantaiwan. after the president said the u.s. would respond militarily should china use force to take taiwan. let's go back to c, who joins us fm tokyo, good to see you again. another clarifation from the white house on what present biden had toay, and it is not the first time that he's done this. was under an hour after , it president biden said yes, the u.s. is willing to respond militarily should china invade taiwan, the white hous now out with a stament that says as the presint said, our
policy is not changed. he reiterated our one china policy, and a reminder, that's the policy that says beijing is the government of china, they go on to s and our commitment peace and stability across the iwan strait. he really are reiterated our commitment under the taiwan relaons act to provide taiwan with theilitary means to defend itself. so quick cleanup, a practiced routine at the white house this is the third time they've had to clarify what the president says on taiwan when china invade taiwan, the president said that is by far the strongest statement in decades from the united states about its position on taiwan. it was interesting when he was talking, he said the burden to protect taiwan was stronger now because of the war in ukraine. he did say he didn't think china would eventually invade
taiwan because they were seeing the sanction regime that has been implemented against moscow, but he seemed to suggest that something had changed in this atmosphere because of what is going on in ukraine. clearly the white house trying to reiterate, not least of which, that the official u.s. policy remains the same. >> kevin, bringing us that update, live from tokyo, many thanks for that. coming up, 72 holes wasn't enough, it took a playoff to decide the winner of this year's pga championship. we are back with that in just a moment.

english premier league trophy yet again, the sixth time since their current owners took over the club and transformed the fortunes of it. manchester city a decade on from winning the premier league for the first time in their history, having another final day of the season packed with drama, and roller coaster emotions. i turn appear before kickoff against aston villa, city and their fans we are here to celebrate almost a foregone conclusion to get over the line, and finish ahead of their life rivals, liverpool. but it looks like it wasn't to be after billy went into a 2-0 lead, their second goal scored by former liverpool favorite playing for the club now managed by liverpool legend steven gerrard. who couldn't manage to win a premier league title while he been playing for liverpool, could he help his former side. it wasn't to be, an amazing comeback with three goals in a matter of minutes, late in the second half sparked by second-
half sub, gc of them somehow city managing to pull themselves out of trouble, when 3-2, and clinch the famous trophy for the fourth time in five years under manager pep ardila. he's won almost everything in his career, but not a champions league title since he came here to the stadium, the focus will now be on that for next season yet again. alex thomas, cnn, manchester. >> and it was a thrilling finish for golf's second major of the season, the pga championship. justin thomas came from roaring from behind to win his second career major after a three hole playoff, thomas began the final round seven shots back of the leader, but thanks to a three underpar final round, thomas was able to force a playoff between him, thomas had two birdies in that playoff to seal the victory. thanks so much for your
