11:01 am
it's is 11:00 ot west, 2:00 p.m. east we have two breaking stories the first, in moments breonna taylor's family and their attorneys will hold a news conference, following news that a multimillion dollar settlement has been reached in her death. it's been more than six months since 26-year-old taylor was killed during a no-knock raid at her home no criminal charges have been pressed against the officers involved we're going to bring you that press conference live once it begin. we're also watching the gulf coast where hurricane sally is sneaking through the alley the storm is moving slower than most people walk, which has forecasters concerns, and warning that some people would
11:02 am
experience as much as 30 inches of lane. a 6 to 9-foot storm surge could be likely. we're already getting the preview of the storm rain is pummeling mississippi, florida and alabama right now. a state of emergency has been declared because of that, and mandatory evacuations have been ordered in the regions' lo low-lying areas. joining me is al roker and chris jansing. you're already in the beginsings of it, talk to me about how people are preparing for the worst. >> reporter: well, pummeling is right. the winds have definitely picked up even in the last half hour, the rain is definitely heavier i just got off the phone with a local emergency official -- wow. let's let that pass, that little
11:03 am
gust pass. all they can do now is wait, because they know that overnight is when this is really going to hit hard they're talking about the potentially for historic flooding, and it's exactly for the reason you have said when you're talking about a storm that is that slow, 2 miles per hour, this is something that happened a lot when it moves slowly, but then you have a rain sitting over a place like gulf shores, all way up to mobile, which has a lot of low-lying areas, and it can drop huge amounts of rain, talking about 30 inches of rain. if it gets above that, we could be talking about as much rain as they would typically getting in the month of september, and then the worry is about that storm surge. you can see some of the waves in the gulf whipping up they're talking, as you said, here seven-foot wall of water
11:04 am
potentially, but it isn't just here on the gulf they're worried about the bay, worried about some of the rivers they already closed in mobile one of the tunnels that goes under the river that goes out from the downtown to an island, and so all the preparations are under way. all the of the emergency personnel are on standby they have water rescue through the sheriff's office that's ready to go, if needed, about you what they don't want to do is have those water rescues. they have been telling people for days now, stay home, get out of the low-lying areas they do have some shelters so far only a few dozen people, maybe even less than that have shown up, but of course with covid, they only have the possibility of 250 to 300 people, so i've been telling people to try to find out places to stay. as i got off the phone and they told me, they're waiting and preparing 2309 worst katy
11:05 am
>> chris, there is a gentleman right by the water i wonder how many people are still out and about -- >> reporter: first person i've seen i don't know if he's -- we've seen mostly weather reporters. when i got here, i don't know, 3 1/2, 4 hours ago, something like that, there were a fee families looking around. they left pretty quickly when these wind gusts come up, you can feel it. it's really starting to get to that level i also -- understand, you've been here on vacation here in gulf shores. it's beautiful, but it's very different, as the rest of the country is, with the coronavirus. so you don't have the numbers of people school has started you don't have the number of people you normally would have as you know, people come out to hurricanes as kind of a tourist event. we haven't seen that here.
11:06 am
we've seen very, very few people by the way, some of the roads we're already seeing are starting to flood. >> you know, it seems like people are taking these storms more seriously in the past few years after we've had some major devastation. al roker, you know, when chris talks about a slow-moving storm, moving slower than you can walk, i think back as everyone does, what we saw in 2017 in texas with harvey. >> that's absolutely right spot on there, katy. this is a slow move ever, and it looks like it will make landfall as a slow mover. you can see we've had a very active season so far we're down to one more name before -- it's wilfred, then we go into the greek alphabet we have vicky out there now. of course, all eyes right now along the gulf because of salary it's dropped down a bit, only
11:07 am
80-mile-per-hour winds, but don't worry about the category while the wind can do damage, what we are most concerned about, as chris alluded to, it's the rain it's forward movement right now, northwest at 2 miles per hour. plus we have tornado watching up as the system comes onshore. it's moving north now, heavy rain, inundating storm surge makes landfall sometime early tomorrow morning as a category 1, maybe even a strong tropical storm, but don't let that fool you. what we're most worried about is the heavy rainfall it will continue tomorrow because of its slow speed. then it will pick up, some speed as it moves thursday into friday into the southeast, into central alabama, central georgia, still causing a decent amount of rain. here's the deal, katy. the storm moving on average between 25 miles per hour and 20 miles per hour, it will pick up,
11:08 am
drop about 5 inches of rain. look at when it's crawl at 5 miles per hour it on average can drop 30 inches or more. this thing is moving at 2 miles per hour it could be the slowest, if not the slow it's landfalling hurricane on record. so we're looking at the potential for historic flooding for southern alabama, western florida, flooding on rivers as well as we said, 30 inches will not be uncommon, but look as you get into central alabama and central and northern georgia, and western south carolina seven inches or more out of this system as it pushes through. the storm surge, of course, not as high as we thought, but still could be significant four to six feet of storm surge can do major damage to buildings, all right so that's something we can't ignore, and those winds, even though, again, not the worst, can still do a lot of damage, take down a lot of power lines, cause a lot of problems.
11:09 am
in fact, the potential power outages for the panhandle into central and southern georgia, still potentially extensive. to your point about harvey, katy, it doesn't have to be a major storm with winds, but that rain could cause extensive flooding >> al, we've been trying to talk to you about climate change for days now we are breaking a weather record every year in some capacity, whether it's the hurricanes, tropical storms, tornadoes, fires, flooding. i just can't believe that we're still debating that on -- well, some people in our higher levels of government are still debating it as if it's not accepted fact. >> look, it's a fact people can say what they will, but there's no denying facts science knows, all right
11:10 am
science knows this is a major problem that is accelerating 2020 will most likely be the hottest year on record for this planet the last five years will probably be the hottest five years on record on this planet california right now and the pacific northwest, going through this incredible wildfire season. california's three to four degrees warmer than average. the wildfire season is growing now. it now is about 105 days longer than usual so we are talking about fact this is a fact it's just a matter of whether we can ameliorate these effects, turn back the clock and try to bring back some of the damage that's been done another couple of major glaciers have broken loose, or have seen some breakage in antarctica. again, we saw a massive melt of the ice sheet.
11:11 am
there's no question about it it's just a matter of how fast, and is it going to accelerate? >> an ice sheet twice the size of manhattan al roker, thank you so much. we also have the mayor of passi pascagula, mississippi, but we have to go to louisville, where we are hearing from breonna taylor's family and her lawyers about the settlement >> yet we're unable to access the room due to covid restrictions, but today's briefing is being shared on web ex we will take questions in the room from reporters and from the web exchat as well we'll get started in a couple minutes. thanks, everybody.
11:12 am
good afternoon i'm greg fisher, the mayor of louisville, kentucky thank you for joining us today on march 13th, 136 days ago, a tragedy beset our communities with the death of breonna taylor her death has ignited a movement in louisville and the nation for racial justice, sending thousands into our streets and cities all across the country and the world, all crying out for justice for breonna. while her death was a tragedy for so many, let's remember that breonna was first a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter, a niece, a girlfriend, a friend and a co-worker. for those who knew her, breonna's death is personal, the pain is visceral, and the loss evermore devastating
11:13 am
tamika palmer, breonna's mom, says breonna was a quick student, a hard worker and old soul, and she was the glue of the family breonna was loved. i cannot begin to imagine ms. palmer's pain and deeply, deeply sorry for breonna's death. while we await a decision from attorney general daniel cameron on whether or not charges will be filed in this case, my administration is not waiting to move ahead with needed reforming to prevent the tragedy like this from ever happening again. that's why i'm here today with the family of breonna taylor to announce the louisville metro government has settled the civil lawsuit with her estate. as part of this settlement, louisville metro government agrees to make several important policy changes first, to build stronger community connections between our police officers and the people they serve. we will, one, establish a
11:14 am
housing credit program to incentivize officers to live in certain low-income census tracks within the city and will encourage officers to volunteer two paid hours of two-week paid percent in the community that they serve next, as i've said before, we often ask our police officers to not only keep the peace, but to deal with challenges that society has failed to address. from mental health to homelessness, to substance abuse, and everything in between. that's not fair to our officers, it's not the right way to address these challenges that's why we will create a program to include social workers at lmpd so they can provide support and assistance on police runs where their presence can be helpful. metro council has already initiated funds in this activity finally, we must have transparency and accountability
11:15 am
for the work that our officers do good officers appreciate nig sunlight on their work, and we will take several steps, we will require a commanding officer to review and approve all the search wants, affidavits in support of search warrants and ri matrixes we're adding additional protocols for money seized at evidence expanding the random drug testing of officers, and will negotiate with the f.o.p. in 2021 to expand on the records that can be maintained in an officer's personnel files. we have updated the process whether a police officer is being investigated and leaves lmpd before the completion of
11:16 am
that investigation going forward, the chief's closing letter will state his or her findings based on the evidence that exists in the filed at the time of the officer's separation from lmpd if sufficient evidence exists in the record to make such a determination, or will state that insufficient evidence exists to make a finding if the nature of the complaint is significant enough to have reasonly resulted in the spanx of the officer, the investigation will continue gathering evidence to evaluate if or other problems exist as part of is the ongoing top-to-bottom review, we will
11:17 am
evaluate the early warning system this system will also be monitored through the soon to be formed office of inspector general. these are significant policy changes, on top of many others we have already made, including those as part of breonna's law, and policies, and if tear gas would ever need to be used in addition to the policy changes, this settlement includes a payment to breonna's estate of $12 million. i'm grateful for the hard work of my team and that of the attorney michael connell, and his team and the thoughtfulness with which the taylor family and her attorneys worked with us to get to this point. we're now going to hear from la nita baker, an attorney for breonna's estate ms. baker?
11:18 am
>> justice for breonna is multilayered what we were able to accomplish today through the civil settlement against the officers is tremendous, but it's only a portion of a single layer. when officers cause the death of an individual it's imperative we seek justice not only in the criminal system, but also in our civil system that's when we hold people financially responsibility it's important to know here a financial settlement was nonnegotiable without significant police reform. that's what we were able to do today. we sought as we went through the negotiations to engage police officers within the community, not just when they're dispatched to runs, but to get out to volunteer in those communities in which they serve, to get to
11:19 am
know their communities in other settings, to live within their communities, to dispatch social workers when they're needed for mental health crises, to recognize at-risk behavior by officers implementing the early warning system, and to overhaul the system by which we execute search warrants that caused the death of breonna taylor on march 13th it's important for her family, that they minimize the risk of what happened to brie on ooh taylor happening to any other family in louisville, kentucky we'll continue that fight beyond the city of louisville, and throughout this country we recognize that this is not all-encompassing and there's still work to be done. we commit our time, talent and resources to continue to work with the community, to fight the systemic racism. we will continue to work on
11:20 am
behalf and with the protesters who have put their freedom on the line to bring awareness to not just breonna taylor, but to the systemic problems faced in our cities we know without their voice, we would not be here today. attorney will ensure that prosecutors handling the case of protesters truly are administer traitors of justice, and not -- to shine a light on what was going on in louisville, kentucky we look forward for being a bridge, to continue to push for change we will continue to push for the mayor's office and our other elected leaders to implement policies put forth in a path forward which calls for community investment, the support for small businesses, affordable housing, closing the education achievement gap, jobs and workforce development, and an overhaul to the -- that document was produced and sign
11:21 am
over 50 organizations in this city, and it needs to be taken seriously. we look forward to working with other grass-roots organization to ensure we continue to hold our elected leaders accountable, but ensure we continue to work with our elected leaders we would not get the policy changes we need if we don't hold our elected laiders accountable. in that same vein, we have to be willing to work with our -- again, it's just a civil suit, but it happens when we work together we do thank the mayor and his team for committing to the reform this is unheard of in one of these cases where you get a financial settle machined and police reform, but again it was important to us, to breonna's family, to the lawyers involved, and it was important for us to give that back to the community which has been fighting so hard to say breonna taylor's name lastly, as i stated as i
11:22 am
started, justice is multilayered we are not going to stop our cause to hold the officers responsible for breonna's death accountable. we're going to continue to put pressure on the attorney general's office to present a fair case to the grand jury, and we're going to -- we know that that indictment is coming from the grand jury we have faith that an indictment is coming from the grand jury. in addition to the attorney general's office, we must remember that the fbi is also doing an investigation into whether there were criminal simms rights violations leading to and after breonna taylor's death. we'll be looking for the federal indictment to come from the department of justice as well. it's important for people know that the city of louisville, they're not the ones that can brings the charges, so today what we did here is do what we could do to bring a bits of police reform. it's a start, but we finished the first mile in a marathon, and we have more miles to go before we achieve and cross that
11:23 am
finish line. we'll now hear from michael connell, whose team word diligently to get us to this agreement. >> thank you, mayor, ms. palmer, may it please you today that we try to bring some assistance and help to you and your family. breonna taylor, her life matters. breonna taylor's life continues to matter, as you see here today. i've thought about breonna's mother, ms. palmer, throughout everything that has led us to today. the hole in my heart of losing a child as well, is the greatest grief i have ever known in my
11:24 am
life nothing can fill that hole i've tried to think how i would have reacted if breonna was my daughter ms. palmer has shown remarkable grace and courage these past six months we did not wait to engage in ms. palmer's counsel to discuss this case the independent investigations by the attorney general's office and the fbi are welcomed, but that was not going to delay the work toward meaningful changes in our city. this is not simply a significant monetary figure, but as ms. baker just mentioned, it's a path of agreed action. the reforming were discussed and moved ahead by representatives of both parties. this work happened over many weeks by dedication by everybody
11:25 am
involved everyone around the table was dedicated to advancing those reforms for the whole community, ms. palmer we tried our best to get a start. much time and effort went into this, and i offer my appreciation to all involved let me just finish by saying today alone is not enough. my hope is this agreement is the next step in building a more just louisville. more just louisville is the medicine we need to heal thank you very much. >> thank you, mike next we will hear from ben crump, an attorney with breonna's estate ben crump. >> thank you, mayor, attorney michael connell. to the louisville metro council,
11:26 am
to tamika palmer as i sit and look at her and bianca, my heart is filled because we have become like family and it has been so long getting to this day where we could assure that breonna taylor's life wouldn't be swept until the rug like so many other black women in america who have been killed by police marginalized. so i'm grateful to the actions of the city of louisville today, and it is not just the historic $12 million settlement which, as
11:27 am
i understand is the largest amount ever paid out for a black woman in a wrongful death killed by police in america i believe it may be the largest amount every paid for a black person in a police shooting. it's one of in the way of settlement in a police killing in america but the comprehensive reform that the louisville is equally
11:28 am
important, but this is about a precedence when my great co-cow kentucky, la nita baker and sam aguilar first talked to me about this black woman they were very concerned that nobody cared. nobody cared about tamika's baby that's when i started calling everybody i no he to say that black matters lives matter, too. i remember calling reverend al sharpton saying can i come on
11:29 am
your show? i called tamika mallory. i called senator kamala harris i was saying to anyone who listens, breonna taylor's life matters, and kamala harris was the first national elected official to go on national television and say her name i called everything to say we cannot let her life be swept under the rug. from all of these individuals,
11:30 am
and especially the activist saying we won't let breonna taylor's life be swept under the rug. thank god, mayor fisher, not with the historical amount, but equalitily important with the reform that attorney baker and attorney connell spoke of, it sets a precedence for other black women that that i lives woman be marginalized. lives like sandra bland, lives like pamela turner in baytown, texas who else was killed as a result of a dangerous no-knock warrant we have to speak trust
11:31 am
to powers, and they dang recent no-knock warrants are disproportionately executed against black people in america. so it's happy that the metro council also stood united with tamika palmer to pass breonna's law to abolish these dangerous no-knock warrants, because it was foreseeable who has most been put in danger with these no-knock warrants. so i want to point out significantly what happened here in louisville today, in representing george floyd in minneapolis, minnesota terrence crutcher in tulsa,
11:32 am
oklahoma, bo than jones in dallas, baton rouge, louisiana, and so many other names of black people who have been killed by police in america while most of america is dealing with the covid-19 pandemic, we in black american are not only deal with that pandemic, but we're also dealing with the 1619 pandemic, the pandemic that started 401 years ago when the first enslaved african came to america and from that day to this one we've dealt with systematic racism and oppression that have killed us inside and outside the courtroom. so it is worth noting that in all those other cities there has
11:33 am
not been responsive, comprehensive and systematic reform that has occurred in louisville kentucky, tamika palmer in the name of breonna taylor in the name of breonna taylor. but regardless of this landmark step on the journey to justice, we still are demanding that kentucky attorney general daniel cameron bring charges immediately against the police officers that murdered breonna taylor immediately. this week justice delayed is justice denied the senate leadership has done a significant step today, but now it is on daniel cameron and the
11:34 am
attorney general of kentucky's office to bring charges. and at the very minimum, lonita, second-degree murder charges we want full justice, not just partial justice. breonna taylor is a light to help heal what's happening in america. for all of those young people, those celebrities, athletes, but most importantly the people who are on the ground, the people who are the activists and protesters saying enough is never.
11:35 am
we see there's two justice systems in america, one for black america, and one for white america. in louisville, kentucky, we took significant steps today in the name of breonna taylor, of trying to correct this broken criminal justice system. we do it in three phases, in the civil rights phase, with this civil lawsuits, which is the only thing that lonita and i can control. we can't control the criminal prosecution. the mayor's office and the city leadership all took a significant step in making sure that the civil rights of breonna taylor was recognized and now we also need our legislative partners to help transform the protests into policy we need breonna's law, not just in louisville, not just in the
11:36 am
state of kentucky, but all throughout the united states of america, because her life matters. lastly, we need the criminal justice system, daniel cameron, to do its part to give the full constitutional guarantees of all citizens to a citizen, a daughter of louisville, kentucky, breonna taylor i would ask, in completing the healing, mr. mayor and city attorney connell, that all those young people who were courageous enough like tamika palmer, and so many of your own in louisville, the unknown john
11:37 am
lew lewises causing good trouble -- no know if the attorney general of the united states is going to implore you to do it, but i will implore you to drop the charges against the nonviolent protesters who are exercising their first amendment rights, because they said breonna taylor's life matters, and these people should not have criminal reports because they were on the right side of history. you all took a significant step. we want you alling to on the right side of history where us completely drop those charges in breonna taylor's name form let's do justice in breonna taylor's name let's do justice with love in our hearts because that is
11:38 am
emblematic of breonna taylor who tamika says is the best version of her say her name, breonna taylor next, tamika palmer, breonna's mom, would like to share a few words with us. >> as significant as today is, it's only the beginning of getting full justice for breonna. we must not lose focus on what the real drive is, and with that being said, it's time to move forward with the criminal charges, because she deserves that and much more
11:39 am
her beautiful spirit and personality is working through all of us on the ground, so please continue to say her name. breonna taylor >> thank you, ms. palmish. palmer. thank you for your grace, year strength, for your love of breonna and of our city as well, and your determination to make this city a more just city and helped to get us to this agreement. i'm grateful for that. thank you. next we will hear from tamika mowry of untold freedom. >> justice for breonna taylor, and there ain't going to be no justice, there ain't going to be no peace a settlement is restitution, but it's not arresting the cops.
11:40 am
we want to say today that the police officers responsible for killing breonna taylor must be arrested in order for the community to feel calm we understand this is an acknowledgement and a great acknowledgement of the wrongdoing that has happened it is important that our community understands what happened here today is very significant it is significant because, again, there is an acknowledgement on breonna taylor's life and the fact that those officers in this city murdered her breonna taylor has shifted the atmosphere she shifted it not just here in kentucky, but across the country. the ban on no-knock warrants was where we begin in terms of great reform, and to know that attorney lonita baker and
11:41 am
attorney sam aguilar continue to push for reform in this particular settlement is extremely important, and it cannot be denied, we must acknowledge it at the reforms are evidence that the city, unfortunately its police department has been exposed for some corruption that exists within the department the the significance of this settlement is a small price to pay for our sister's life, a very small price to pay. they deserve all the money that we can muster up in the world just to help a little bit with the feeling of pain and terr moil that i know exists within this beautiful family. let us not lose sight on the main focus, as tamika palmer has said the officers, bret hangen son,
11:42 am
miles cosgrove, john mattingly and joshua jaynes, we must not forget about joshua jannes, who lied on a novembe-knock want. we cannot forget about any of those officers, and if this police department is to do right by this community, if you know of other officers who were involved, they should be arrested and indicted immediately. again, the restitution portion is one part but arresting the officers is what will make this city do right by its citizens and not just breonna taylor, but all the breonna taylors across this city who are afraid sitting in their homes, because to not
11:43 am
have an indictment happen in this city is to say that, no matter how much we pay, no matter how much reform we do, we would rather pay, we would rather cover it than to deal with the issue so i have to say to you, mayor fisher, we want to thank you for your leadership but we want to say that if, for any reason these officers are not indicted, that you must instruct your police department to fire every single one of them on the spot that is called getting justice for breonna taylor thank you very much. >> thank you, ms. mallory. finally we will hear from katura herron, who is with the aclu of kentucky
11:44 am
so a lot of big headlines out of this news conference here, not only with the mayor of louisville, but also the family of breonna taylor, and also activists and leaders throughout the community. $12 million in a civil settlement, but the lawyers and the moment and everybody there making it clear that this fight is not over. they're still going to put pressure on the attorney general to bring charges against the officers who killed breonna taylor they did announce, though, that along with that civil settlement there's a number of police reismts, includes a housing credit for officers to live in low-income housing, in the communities they police, creating a program that include social worsers for assistance on police runs. a commanding -- before the officer seeks a judicial warrant.
11:45 am
those are some pretty serious reforms, but again each one of those speakers making it clear they are not done fighting, they're still putting a lot of pressure on the attorney general to come down with an indictment on the officers responsible for killing breonna taylor so far that has not come joining me now is nbc news correspondent blayne alexander and former federal prosecutor and paul butler. blayne, a lot of big headlines there. talk to me about the reaction that you're getting from the community and what more we can expect >> reporter: i think one of the things that stuck out to me was you heard time and time again during the conference a strong reminder that these two issues are separate this was a settlement to the civil side, but really from everybody, from breonna taylor's mother to the attorneys for the
11:46 am
family saying their main focus is criminal justice, saying essential this is just the beginning. i spoke earl yes today with a person who as been protesting for the better of four months. he said, yeah, if the family is happy, certainly that's notable, but they are looking for justice, for accountability, and they want to see those officers indicted one thing that sticks out from this is that amount, that $12 million. you heard attorney ben crump saying he believes it's the largest settlement paid out for a wrongful death for a black woman killed by police officers here in america. they certainly drove home this is a historic amount, a major amount paid out to the family, and then those police reforms as well, specifically the one around that amounts to search warrants that's ultimately what ended breonna taylor's life, that they have to be approved by a commanding officer one thing they did here is this is not enough.
11:47 am
>> you other thing i think is notable is they called out the attorney general daniel cameron by name several times. we know he is the one leading that investigation, and according to sources to nbc news, he is presenting evidence to a grand jury as early as this week, katy >> paul, let's talk about that what has taken so long why is this process still going so many month after breonna taylor was killed? >> it's hard to say. there are concerns about daniel cameron. he's an african american, conservative republican, a protege of mitch mcconnell president trump recently announced that cameron is one of the contenders of a supreme court vacancy, so certainly republicans tend to be more protective of police officers in these cases. it's before a grand jury now
11:48 am
importantly there's no criminal prosecution here yet criminal cases are about punishing people who have done wrong and expressing the moral condemnation civil settlements like today are financial compensation to victims and families one does not take the place of the other. so, again, protesters wanted to see the officers who killed breonna brought to justice for that -- for them, that means homicide charges >> $12 million is a lot of money, but it's not going to bring breonna taylor back. paul butler, thank you very much blayne alexander, thank you as well joe biden is in tampa where he's holding a roundtable about providing better care for veterans >> we have many obligations -- to our children, to the elderly, to the poor, to those in need,
11:49 am
but i believe we only have one truly sacred obligation, to prepare and equip our troops we send into harm's way, and to care for them and their families when they return it is his first of two stops in that state. later he'll expand a spanish heritage event it's one of the most competitive battle grounds this year a poll out last hour from monmouth shows him leading in the state. while a number of recent polls have shown president trump outperforming the number, the monmouth poll has biden up by 26 points, which is about what hillary clinton got in 2016. one calvia, the margin of error is over 9% the fight for latino voters is particularly important in florida, where every single vote counts even a smaller margin for joe biden than had been had been
11:50 am
could be the difference between winning that state and losing it joining mess is alison barber. what have they been telling you? >> reporter: hey, as you know, miami, the hispani across miami-dade county is incredibly diverse, you have cuban americans, venezuelan americans, heritage from el salvador that community have grown after more left after hurricane maria. you have people here who are mexican, the list goes on and on every voter that we have spoken to, they say for every campaign to not just reach out to the latino campaign at large, but to communicate with the different communities you have within the latino community people we have spoken to here in miami, who are democrats, plan to support biden, they feel like
11:51 am
the biden campaign is making some of the right steps, some of the recent outreach efforts they say are good particularly when you look at so much the ads that plan to release in different neighborhoods, where they have accents reflective of where the communities is being broadcast they also tell us is that the campaign needs to do more. they feel like the biden campaign is taking the latino community's votes for granted. listen >> we need them to start raising their voice even more and focusing on not only on what trump is saying in his campaign but what they are doing. >> he should be visiting as much as possible, speaking about latin america policy, venezuelan policy, colombian policy, caribbean policy, because the voters here are as fundamentally concerned about the state of the economy and the coronavirus pandemic as the issues facing their home countries

>> reporter: the trump campaign has been effective at conveying their messages to the cuban american community here, also venezuelan, they want the biden campaign to take their message more aggressively. katy. >> thank you very much coming up next -- it's not going away, it's not getting better and it will radically change all of us, why is the president refusing to respond when lives are on the line unbelievable after the break. i have the power to lower my blood sugar and a1c. because i can still make my own insulin. and trulicity activates my body to release it like it's supposed to. once-weekly trulicity is for type 2 diabetes. it's not insulin. it starts acting from the first dose. and it lowers risk of heart attack, stroke, or death in people with known heart disease or multiple risk factors. trulicity isn't for people with type 1 diabetes

or diabetic ketoacidosis. don't take trulicity if you're allergic to it, you or your family have medullary thyroid cancer, or have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2. stop trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have an allergic reaction, a lump or swelling in your neck, severe stomach pain, changes in vision, or diabetic retinopathy. serious side effects may include pancreatitis. taking trulicity with sulfonylurea or insulin raises low blood sugar risk. side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, belly pain, and decreased appetite, which lead to dehydration and may worsen kidney problems. we're committed to helping ensure trulicity is available and affordable. learn more at

the president landed in california yesterday surprising no one by not only downplaying a word you might have been hearing lately, but deanying the role of climate change i could use this space to gather all of the evidence that the president is wrong and needs to be better acquainted with the research we know at this point the president's public dismissal about science, it's not about the science it's about the fight. it's about rallying his base with a fresh fight his unscientific comments on

climate change are identical to his unscientific comments on the pandemic this does not happen in other countries. our peers around the world, by and large, haven't made mask wearing a political contest, climate change a chance to own the libs this is donald trump's america in 2020, the leader of the free world could tour death and suffering and then sit arms crossed as he hears the pleas of the local leaders he's supposed to be there to help and then say this in response >> i think one agreement is management actually work together with that science, that science is going to be key, because if we ignore that science and sort of put our head in the sand we're not going

to succeed together protecting californian. >> reporter: it will start getting cooler >> i wish science agreed with you. >> oh, well, i don't think science knows actually >> climate change is like a longer term version of what we're dealing with the coronavirus, it's not goinging away and it is not getting better and it will radically change all of our lives, like this pandemic has, if we sit here and do nothing. which is why people need to be told the truth about it so we can fight it all together, but here's the unbelievable thing that i can't get out of my head -- the president does know the science, his own military lists climate change as a threat to global security which makes me wonder right now, if he's doing the same thing with climate change that he did with covid, is he privately acknowledging that it's a big deal, a killer, a crisis for the ages, and then telling us it's not a big deal the science
