5:06 am
elizabeth warren told see gathered in some cases where any amy klobuchar she just doesn't have their by refocusing completely on the pandemic by making this a referendum on the president's role with the pandemic and that's why i was a little as i was texting david during the debate why is pence going back to the pandemic this is not where he should be just from a pure strategy point of view. this is this this actually was i think a little bit of up. it's going more know and i think for what it did not do than what it did do now if you've got to run a simple debate if you're going to run a safe debate you're going to present your talking points. that's not enough to upset this race and this dynamic is changing that we are not certain that we have another debate on the 15th we probably have a debate on the 22nd, but all of that revolves around. >>the pandemic and the condition and that's for most voters that's why they tune out of politics because they're seen this and it's not
5:07 am
really moving forward their own household. >>well we actually have some breaking news regarding the next presidential debate between president trump and democratic nominee joe biden. turns out they're going to make it virtual now this comes after the president and more than 2 dozen people at the white house have tested positive for the coronavirus so the second presidential debate set to take place one week from tonight in miami both the president and mister biden will still be in miami. but they'll be participating from remote locations, however after tell you that just moments ago the president president trump tweeted. or at least said during an interview on fox business moments ago quote, i'm not going to do a virtual debate. those were his words this morning during that probably the president right now saying he will not participate in a format that calls for virtual participation. so we'll have to see how this plays out. but that's the very latest this morning, the president has also said that he thinks getting coronavirus was a blessing from god.
5:08 am
>>and he posted new video on twitter from the rose garden yesterday and in it he credited an experimental drug for his apparent recovery take a look. >>it's a cure for me i walked in i didn't feel good. a short 24 hours later, i was feeling great, i want to get out of the hospital. and that's what i want for everybody i want everybody. to be given the same treatment as your president. i think this was a blessing from god that i caught it. this was a blessing in disguise. i caught it i heard about this drug. i said let me take it it was my suggestion i said let me take it. and it was incredible the way it worked incredible and i think about in catch it would be looking at that like a number of other drugs. >>all right so there you have the president admitting that he was the one who insisted he take this drug that was created by regeneron a company that makes this experimental antibody treatment. it's in late-stage testing right now and its safety and effectiveness across the general population is not yet known. thankfully, at least up
5:09 am
to this point it has worked out for the president. but again the full safety and effectiveness of the drug has not been. proven just yet but this treatment has been tested. and it has been proven at least to be able to prevent some serious illness after coronavirus infection in certain members of the population. >>now to the wildfire coverage, the glass fire in napa and sonoma counties has burned more than 67,000 acres now and as you can see containment has gone up to 62% you're also looking at some of the damage done there. there have been a lot of homes destroyed by this fire. they're thinking they're going to able to get it fully contained by the 20th in the meantime there are still 13,000 structures that are threatened and 600 plus structures have been burned down. >>well as firefighters continue to make progress in controlling the glass fire. there are new supply and support stations for people returning to the evacuation area to get supplies. robbers and harvey is live at one of those centers in santa rosa
