[inaudible]. and the administration and yet what action they might take. >> i don't have anything to read out in terms of fair intentions or what they would convey from officials from the prc but our view, the way to view or frame our relationship and our view is that cooperation on transnational issues is not the favor to us or got a transaction, xi should be taking actions on issues where there is a global community able to meet the needs of the global community and that's what they should do in order to be a part of leadership in the global community so i don't have
7:29 pm
anything to read out on their front and they can certainly speak for themselves. >> can you walk us through logistics with president vladimir putin have much time for meetings and i met you expect to be focused on ukraine, versus other issues or mutual interest in the relationship pretty. >> sure, i'll certainly put out a list of the delegation and i'll see if that is something that we can provide all of you later the segment and i can also check on the logistics of how much time is blocked out for the meeting and in terms of the focus of the meeting, as was announced when we announced this weekend, it's an opportunity for the president to -underscore and of course he was concerns with the russian motility in the military and reform the united states for the cemetery and territorial regimes it is also an opportunity to discuss range
7:30 pm
of topics in the u.s. and russia relationships including stability and regional issues but you can certainly expect that our concerns about the military activities in the border, will be a prominent part of the discussion. >> and can we be prepared for the likelihood in their region in the russia event. >> i'm not going to get ahead of the presidents conversation with our trance of any partners which is going to happen later this afternoon and will provide you a list of who will be participating in a call as soon as scheduled details we are going to continue to coordinate with our partners on a range of economic
7:31 pm
sanctions and steps that could be taken should president putin decide to move forward. reporter: how is the relations with russia heading into this? >> our objective of the present time in office has been not to escalate the relationship but has been to remove to a more stable footing and their relationship. but certainly that means we can raise concerns where we have them, specifically about areas like the military buildup we have seen on the border in ukraine. many of us lived through a similar playbook back in 2014. the president is not going to hold back in conveying his concern and also conveying our conversations in our preparations should they be warranted. we do not know president putin has made a decision, we do not know that yet that this is why the opportunity to have a conversation. there's also an opportunity and this called have a conversation about a range of topics where there can be
7:32 pm
mutual interest, whether it is iran's nuclear capabilities as a member of the p5 plus one talks and what that looks like moving forward. in other strategic stability issues where we have worked together in the past. reporter: [inaudible] given the human rights abuses? >> everybody can call it whatever they want to call it. i want to remind you often when use a diplomatic boycott, that phrase, brings people back to 1980 and we are not. the athletes will be participating. we will be rooting for the athletes from home. i am an olympics obsessed a person, i look forward to doing that. this is just an indication it cannot be business as usual. that not sending a diplomatic delegation and send that message. that does not mean, think this is your question just to come back to it, that is the end of the concerns we will raise about human rights abuses. we've already taken a number of steps, we have been a
7:33 pm
leader in the world at leading action through the g7. we are also working with congress. this is sending a message given these human rights abuses we cannot proceed with business as usual, go ahead. >> like trying to get other allies to join the united stats in this diplomatic boycott? >> we have informed them of our decision. obviously believe it to them to make their own decision. >> one apple american athletes from olympics? >> we did not feel it was the right step to penalize athletes who'd been training, preparing for this moment bread we felt we could send a clear message by not sending an official u.s. delegation. reporter: on the pu temple how specific will the president be on food know what the consequences will be if there's an invasion? >> i think the president will be clear as we have conveyed publicly that been preparing a range of economic sanctions or economic options that could
7:34 pm
have a detrimental impact on the russian economy in terms of what level of detail i will leave the president the space to do that himself. ruby almost potential sanctions, on the energy side of things will these all be done in concert with allies or is there possibility the s will operate some. [inaudible] pre- >> at the great question fell the presence could have this conversation with the number of key partners this afternoon. obviously it's important to us to move in coordination and lockstep with our transatlantic partners and allies i do not want to rule anything in or out to where those conversations are headed. reporter: present schumer said he had a deadline of christmas and finish build back better there's a lot of work to do. is that a deadline you subscribed too or do you see it going further than that? >> 's heat noted in his dear colleague letter. washington leader schumer made it clear today he's moving
7:35 pm
full speed ahead. he outlined very specific hilt detail that you of all people appreciate, phil, all the work happening behind the scenes. i was so we are engaged in that but we certainly support leader schumer's efforts and push to move this forward and get it done in the coming weeks. reporter: i guess what i'm asking is a christmas a drop dead? or can this be something that moves the past christmas if the legislative realities make that a reality? >> attorney understand where you're at asking that with many conversations between now and christmas. we are encouraged by leader shimmers effort to move this forward all the work happening behind the scenes among staffers, members, to move this forward get it done go ahead ashley. reporter: thank you. on the democracies that can explain why countries such as hungary which is in ee you member in turkey he was and eat you member are invited by other countries like the philippines have an egregious record on human rights are included. >> sure, the democracy summit
7:36 pm
that will happen later this week is an opportunity to bring together u.s. officials, civil society leaders and foreign leaders who represent a diverse array of experiences to talk about strengthening democracy, fighting corruption and promoting respect for human rights. an invitation is not a stamp of approval on their push to democracy. nor is exclusion a stamp of the opposite of that act as disapproval. it is just meant to have a broad scope of leaders, a broad scope of snow and broad officials represented. reporter: there is approximately one countries invited there's a dozen or so using a non- wonky term they can go either way. can you give a little thinking on how those decisions were made when there is a did bait with the country? >> i would say broadly speaking this is an
7:37 pm
opportunity again to not to celebrate everything we have done on democracy either for the united states or all of these countries and call it a day. it is an opportunity to continue to strive to do better per the president feels democracy is always a work in progress. you were always trying to make yourself better, to lead to better to push other countries to be better this is an opportunity to do just that. understand of course the interest in the invite list. but it is not meant to be again a stamp of approval or disapproval, just meant to have a diverse range of voices and faces represented at the discussion. go ahead. >> you mentioned buying was deeply involved in the ukraine in 2014. as one if you could talk about what the takeaways are from that experience? though systolic these same things that you guys tried to do in 2014.
7:38 pm
why does he think this will be different? >> i think first our objective is to prevent them from moving forward and to convey on the front and that we have with congress with their nato partners within transatlantic partners to prepare a range of steps that could be detrimental to their economy. i would say there are some certainly lesser things we have watched and seen we certainly saw back in 2014. a massive spike more than tenfold and social media activity pushing propaganda at last seen in the invasion of 2014. that something that did not have a lot of past precedent at the time, to us we see that as an indication of efforts to influence inside and outside of course as well. we've also seen evidence as we have noted here rush at making
7:39 pm
plan for aggressive moves against ukraine. i would say our objective or the president's objective on the front as to lead with diplomacy, have those conversations behind them directly with leaders. met with his counterpart there's a range of levels speaking with president putin tomorrow. in the meantime have a range of options should they decide to move forward. >> why would your efforts this time be more successful than last time wider than they will be? >> we will see if they are. our objective first and foremost is to prevent the move forward, the military progression we saw in 2014. reporter: quick question on testing. this ramp up and testing there's still a lot of countries like germany you pay have a massive testing free of charge or for a nominal fee why can't that be done in the united states? >> i would say first we have eight tests that have been approved by the fda we see
7:40 pm
that as the gold standard print weapon all of those tests would meet that standard is a question for the scientists and medical experts but i do not suspect they would. our objective to decrease cost if we look old done over the course of time we have quadrupled the testing plan. we have cut the cost is significantly over the past few months and the effort to ensure you are able to get your test means wonder 50 million americans will get free test. >> kind of complicated why not make them free and give them out and make them available everywhere? what should we send one to every american? >> maybe. what if every american has a one test how much is that because what happens after that? >> always notice other countries make them available in greater quantities for less money. >> we share the same objective which is to make them less expensive and more accessible every country's going to do
7:41 pm
that differently i was noting again our test go to the fda approval process of thought the same process it doesn't work that way in every single country. we continue to build or testing capacity because we absently recognize this is a key component of fighting the virus go-ahead. >> you said the goal is to prevent putin from invading so what is president biden willing to threaten will happen if russia invades beyond more sanctions? >> again it's not about threats it is about conveying the right path forward here is through diplomacy. in the meantime on financial sanctions we have consulted significantly with our allies and have a path forward that would pose significant harm on the russian economy and call that a threat you can call it a fact you can call it preparation, whatever you want to call it. that is something we've talked about publicly suing the president would convey that as
7:42 pm
well. >> is president biden ready to warn the possibility of a military involvement in the ukraine? >> i'm not going to get ahead of the president's conversation for that is not averse objective. i would note in the past if you look back at 2141 of the outcomes here if they were to decide to move forward other countries in the eastern plank nato partners looking for reassurance of the united states. that something that is a follow-up to 2014. i'm not sure that's what russia wants to see the nash consequence. >> did the white house consider marring u.s. athletes from participating in the game? >> i'm not going to get into additional considerations. all i can convey to you is where we landed in hawaii. >> why that decision why not go further?
7:43 pm
>> because not sending a u.s. delegation sends a clear message we cannot conduct herself as business as usual. we are not were business as usual is appropriate time there's human rights abuses we have been outspoken about we have taken actions on we feel this sends a clear message. at the same time we believe u.s. athletes those who have been training, giving up a lot of blood, sweat and tears be able to go and completely look forward to cheering for them from home go-ahead. >> thank you. other violent crimes sexy been seeing there's been crashing grab armories there's and murders in the neighbor hood in hollywood last week this is similar to the crime spike over the summer where the presence biggest pushes to address that was the d.o.j. threat teams are set out in d.c., new york, chicago, l.a.,
7:44 pm
san francisco the third strike was assembled in july have they accomplish anything? >> we had the forces and part of the gun violence. the department of justice send them in order to work in partnership in lockstep with law enforcement on the ground. we've also recently taken steps the justice department and federal law enforcement with local jurisdictions with a los angeles, san francisco's and others were with seen a rash of break-ins to offer their assistance and provide assistance through multipurpose jurisdictional task forces. we have seen over the course of time we let other people determine what the cause and effect as we know we've seen an increase in crime over the course of the pandemic. we have seen that timeline. but the president's focus on doing is working ensure there's funding to support local cops local jurisdictions
7:45 pm
to ensure law enforcement at a federal level is a partner both on the short and long-term to address either of these spikes in crime or gun violence which is an ongoing concern and makes this adequate funding in the budget for that is what we are working to do the department of justice i'm sure can provide you an update on the strike forces. reporter: i talk about funding in the building back a better plan? >> the funding in the presence propose a budget which is a significant increase over what former president from proposed burglary racing having this plan. [inaudible] too. >> well, i'm saying pass and the president's budget which is something we obvious and went to get to next year, since we can only get to a short-term cr, has significant increase in funding to support police departments, support the fighting of crime in significant increase from former presidents from the president supports. reporter: is there concern about having an atf nominee will all this is going on?
7:46 pm
it is vulnerability or gap in leadership? >> i think our collective view is the blocking of a fully qualified and experienced former atf agent from serving in that role, certainly is something republicans did not have to take the step to do but here we are. so we have to nominate a new person on the president finds the right person i'm sure he will be prepared to do that. but again we could have had a nominee, someone who is qualified and prepared to serve in that role confirmed in working. >> talk with the "washington post" article came up after a string articles and vice president's office. and then the director of operation talk but how much he loves his job. there was a similar social media push the summer following some negative headlines about ongoing's and the vice president's office. did anyone ask the deputy director to put out a positive tweet today or was that all on
7:47 pm
him? >> i am not aware of any ask for a positive tweet or a specific tweet i will pointed to the vice president's office i work with the number people the vice president office are certainly looking forward to continuing their job, go ahead. >> it president biden give the president and a heads up about his intention and decision-making with the diplomatic voice? >> only spoke a few weeks ago? >> yes the olympics were not a discussion during that call. reporter: will there be any conversations about that? >> at lower level was made aware of the decision. >> on the call smart president both in the press expects it to be a long one. of course tensions with ukraine will be a major topic of discussion but not the only one. how much time do you anticipate will be devoted to that versus a follow-up from the geneva summit on stability and cyber security? >> certainly expect ukraine to be a major topic of discussion during the conversation for
7:48 pm
their other topics we also expect to receive some attention but i understand the desire to understanding the breakdown. i expect to have a better breakdown once the call actually happens that we can provide to all of you tomorrow. reporter: family on covid the present together the african travel ban or being value on a daily basis. it's possible the policy could end at any time. but with the white house need to see happen in order to lift those bands question our collective not be the white house to be a recommendation from dr. fauci and the health and medical experts that we should pull back those travel restrictions. that is something being evaluated and discussed on a daily basis. >> back to ukraine, does the president view. [inaudible] >> i would say of course we view the integrity with the
7:49 pm
global community. it is of our interest to ensure stability across to europe but i'm not going to give further definition to it. >> if the answer is yes the answer is no? >> you are asking this you want a yes or no answer foreign policy is not a little more nuanced than that so keep going what is your next question? >> with the migrant protection protocol program. they say the ideas they could facilitate lawyers who can you say to assure to those people? >> i was a first dishonor preference to be re- implementing to reinstituting the migrant protection program we are doing that because of court order and a legal requirement to do so. put in place a number of changes to make from the department of homeland
7:50 pm
security to improve some humanitarian component. we still feel the program is inefficient, inhumane and we did not eagerly reimplemented i should say. but in terms of people who were skeptics we are absolutely committed to doing everything we can, as we are required by court order to implement this to take steps to ensure we are injecting humanitarian considerations in providing the assistance we have promised to people who are participating in the program. [inaudible] he met with the director a few minutes ago. i waited president biden afford this option? >> every president has a range of options were not point outline those from here. i desire continues to be a diplomatic path forward for the last round of meetings
7:51 pm
were disappointing and iran did not come to the table prepared all of the negotiators are back home having consultation given the space to do that. go ahead. >> have a couple of questions. first the build back better with presidents talking i think the big question is still senator manchin still on this has been for months at this point. as the president and senior staff work on negotiating, are they confident some thing will actually get done in the next couple of weeks for those individual people? i know over all the communities can do their work. there can be a sticking point they have not seen in their public comments recently to be
7:52 pm
yielding all that much. how do you handle that from here and is a president on speaking or having those senators? >> we have been in closer touch with the range of centers including those at a senior staff level and i expect that to consider. of course leader schumer certainly understands and knows you did the vast majority every single democrat to successfully move forward with a vote. in the meantime he's leading the effort important preparations to get to that point. an officer the president is highlighting the components of the package on prescription drugs that lower the costs that ensure people the millions of americans are dealing with covering the cost do not have to choose between that and food or share with other people's on the stories outline today will tell you. but in terms of what individual senators will do, where they are they really have to speak for themselves. >> the presidential commission
7:53 pm
of the supreme court is holding its final meeting tomorrow to vote on their report to the president. what are your plans for how the president of white house staff a process that information and then respond to it? from an executive order at the hundred 80 day timeline will there be a shorter timeline for evaluation of this? with the oral arguments on abortion, a lot of concern among a lot of people on the democratic side about the court and how it will be responding before it on those issues. >> as you noted later this afternoon it will be posted and then there will be a meeting and tomorrow i believe, that will be the next step in the process. the president will think at the report and will have time to review the report. i do not have a timeline for how long it will take them to
7:54 pm
review the report. i would remind you all it is not a recommendation he either accepts or denies. he asked if the first group of experts from across the political spectrum, from across state viewpoints spectrum to look at and assess a range of issues that have long been discussed and debated by court experts. whether it's how cases are taken up, the individual judges expanding order to assess and provide a review of that, not to make again they hear the five recommendations accept or deny them. that is the next step. it will be posted, you all will see it. in terms of how and when the president will review it, what that means i will give him the space to do that. >> is no kind of plan at this point? >> he will have to review it first. i don't think were going to set a timeline for what that looks like and what it will mean after that.
7:55 pm
>> biden administration put out a big report on threats and corruption. i want to ask you a couple easy questions about that. shortly after president biden's a virtual meeting the attorney said he has chinese investment fund i was hoping you could commit to basic transparency about the transaction including the name of the buyer, dollar amount and timing. the second question i colleague has a new book out called laptop from how i soaping you could it is not disinformation. >> first of all the president of the sun is not a employee of the federal government i would pointed to his representatives. nor do we have time or interest in exploring reading
7:56 pm
the book. i think i answered your question. you can go to the representative of the person who is not an employee of the federal government, go ahead tina perry think we have to move audrey. reporter: the white house is doing helping hospitals that are overwhelmed with the delta environment like massachusetts and new york. >> only check on it specifically. we have set on the pass and expect are doing now but i do not have the information in front of me his work with state public health officials to ensure we are sending surge resources to them. because as we have talked about a fair amount in here it's not just the vaccine to your report it's ensuring their health and medical experts as needed, additional resources sometimes medical needs or medical equipment needs and we have been surging those on an as-needed basis. i'll check on massachusetts at this anything in addition. >> if the white house is concerned about the tax credit is that something.
7:57 pm
[inaudible] >> absolutely are concerned i should millions of americans be. that is an area that is a part of the president to build back better agenda. and why he and we are so eager to get it done. >> is a presidents believe democracy is always a work in progress and you have to push yourself to do better. what does the president believe the united states needs to do better? >> i think of the president leaves office restoring trust and faith not a just government but institutions in doing that in a range of ways. that means not only respecting and valuing the freedom of the press and media here and around the world, it also means ensuring we are speaking out against human rights and ensuring we are taking steps to address corruption around the world. just put out a major report on
7:58 pm
corruption in advance of the summit progress getting at and why think you were asking is it is not -- we are continuing to work hard, do better and make sure were protecting our own democracy here at home. it is unquestionable that people around the world, countries around the world look at the events of january 6, look at what happened here in the united states. it was clear when the president came into office just as my front and center in his agenda and it has been. reporter: besides a build it back better, what legislation realistic to they think will pass into law before the end of the first year in office? >> before the end of the first year in office? let's see, next to january per there are a lot of steps, it is six weeks away i'm not going to get into the legislative calendar and leave that to leader schumer to take steps on. and i'm not going to get a timeline on it.
7:59 pm
the president obsolescent as build back better agenda done as soon as possible. he wants to make voting rights a reality. he wants to get police reform done. he wants to ensure the act passes through and we ensure were taking additional steps in a bipartisan manner to address the supply chain crisis. want to get his nominees through. so there is a lot he would like to see happen in short order. you're going to continue to work with leaders to do that. reporter: will there be a print out later of the leader calls? >> after the call this afternoon expect you will. reporter: lastly gemma reaction. [inaudible] >> i believe we put out a statement or the state department put out a statement but let me reiterate some of these key points. the burmese military regime on the repression of other democrat further runs two in germany. their continued disregard for

[inaudible] purred. reporter: high expectations? is at the white house message to? >> i think it is. our objective here is this is
8:01 pm
an opportunity we've been talking about having a conversation on a range of issues the president believes leader to leader diplomacy. this is an opportunity to convey very clearly and directly where we have serious concerns including as it relates to russians in military activity on the border with ukraine and reaffirm our support for the sovereignty in an integrity of ukraine it certainly after president putin to make decisions on what steps he is or isn't going to take. >> what's included in that, what is the update on the investigation on that? >> sure. i know the department of homeland security's production comments on that, i do not have anything new to update you on in terms of status.
