Leave the Palestinian territories who have been shut out. Who's responsible for their health care and in Hanna reports. Good evening everyone I'm Lindsey Davis thank you so much for streaming with us it is being called fortress Washington. Our country's seat of government currently looks more like a war zone as we prepare to transfer power. Take a look now this is a security crackdown ahead of the Biden Harrison on duration anxieties running time with a capital in all fifty states on alert. The FBI is warning of a substantial threat of IEDs during protests beginning this weekend. But as we know the pandemic continues to claim lives and their could be another crisis brewing this time with the vaccine supply. We heard skating accusations from governors today after they learn that they would not be getting the vaccine doses that they expected saying that the federal government lying about its vaccine reserves. There are questions tonight about we are the rollout goes from here Biden calls what happened so far a dismal failure. More than 390000. Americans have already died from this relentless virus. So we begin tonight with the state of our vaccine supply do we have enough and who's to blame for the shortage we giants' lead to sell. Tonight outrage growing days after the federal government said it would release second doses of vaccine to reach more America it's. Some states learning those doses had already been sent out long before the secretary of health and human services announced it we are releasing the entire supply we have. Four order by states. Rather than holding second doses in physical reserve tonight some governors furious after they told the residents they would be getting more vaccine. They were a lie. They don't have any doses help. There is no strategic supply for the second doses from Minnesota to Oregon let me and he very clear. This deception. On a national scale. And in New York governor Andrew Cuomo frustrated over his state instead getting a decrease of 50000 doses. The federal government creates a situation where you have the floodgates opened and they eat. Syringe at the bottom seven million people for. 250000. Doses per week but the reality is those second doses had already been shipping out over the last three weeks and the remaining eight million in reserve. Will be delivered in just days nationwide 31 million vaccine doses delivered twelve million shots given. But only one point six million people have gotten their second doses. Demand soaring. After many states expanded access to more priority groups overnight lines snaking through Brooklyn. After a false rumor on social media spread about X for doses those people turned away. The Javits Center a converted field hospital just ten months ago. Now one of the city's mass vaccination sites but some telling me they waited on line for hours just to get an appointment seems that it. Act. At bat. Right. Senior citizens of course in at high risk group would Johnson joins us now from the Javits Center in New York which. There's an alarming new report out tonight from the CDC warning that this UK variant could become the predominant variant in the US by march what do you know about that. Yet just a couple of months away Lindsay that is the concern that UK variant has already been discovered in fifteen states. Not thought to be more deadly but some early estimates indicate that it could be up to 50% more contagious. So the CDC is calling on all Americans to double down on things like masks and social distancing. And expedite the vaccine roll out which researchers do believe we'll still work against this variant Lindsay. All right with Johnson thanks so much. Doesn't like Biden is pledging that under his watch 100 million shots of the vaccine in his first 100 days will get into the arms of Americans but he did not mince words saying. It may get worse before it gets better Mary Bruce reports now on how Biden is trying to turn the tide. On this pandemic. Calling the vaccine roll outs so far a dismal failure president elect Joseph Biden today is promising to do better. Outlining his plan to deliver 100 million shops in 100 days. Our planet's as clear as visible. Get more people vaccinated for free. Create more places for them to get faxed. Mobilized more medical teams to get shots of people's arms. Increased supply and get it out the door as soon as possible. The president elect says he'll use FEMA and the National Guard to set up 100 emergency vaccination centers around the country. Converting Jim stadiums and community centers. And he's promising that the federal government will streamline the vaccine distribution process to states right now we're here that they can't play. Here's they don't know how much supply of vaccines they can expect at what time for. Biden today asking the American people to be patient but promising change is coming. The city want to most challenging operation efforts ever undertaken by our country. You have my word. Nannies that hell this average is two requests to the nation keep the faith and Wear a mask. Mary Bruce joins us now from Washington area that request to Wear a mask also appears to extend this in the house Republicans invited. May try to work with to pass this agenda. It Lindy Baidu they had them pretty harsh words for those Republican members of congress who were spotted. Last week refusing to Wareham mass is they were huddled in close quarters with their colleagues that they are hiding out in a secure location during. This each for members of congress at least have now tested positive several of them were in that room including everything cancer survivor. Fighting was once he said what the hell is the matter with them saying it is stupid not to Wear a mask and telling them point blank to grow up. And Biden also can take any questions but he did respond quickly and forcefully on the way out about whether he feels at next week's inauguration will be safe what do you say. He said in one word clearly and without hesitation yes he is confident that next week's swearing in will be safe now we're told he does plan to spend some time this weekend working. On the big address that he will be delivering at that ceremony and while he will be standing of course in that same spot in front of the capitol where we just saw. Such a horrific violence Biden is planning to try and use this. As a moment to call for unity and healing Lindsay. All right Mary Bruce thanks so much. As you saw the beginning of the show the nation's capital is a fortress tonight the capitol building surrounded by fencing razor wire and thousands of National Guard troops as many as 2.5 thousand troops will be there to protect Wednesday's inauguration.

Meanwhile vice president pence has reached out to vice president elect Connell a Harris congratulating her an offering assistance but. It does come with little time left before the Biden Harris administration takes over here's our chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl. A little over a week after inciting a mob of his supporters to attack the US capitol. President trump is now planning an elaborate military style sendoff for himself on the morning of the inauguration. Sources briefed on his plans tele BC news the president hopes to depart to the sounds of a military band. Walking down a red carpet flanked by troops as he boards air force worn for the last time.

Reviewing inauguration security plans and visiting troops at the capitol. Have a safe. Inauguration. I. Soon after he leaves DC troupe will find himself on trial in the senate. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hasn't yet decided wind chill delivered the article of impeachment it will trigger distorted the trial. You'll be at first to know. And media.

That left and any required house Democrats prepare their case against the president. Speaker Pelosi today announced retired general Russell operate will lead an immediate review of capital security. Including whether any members of congress gave rioters access to the building that day before so they could plan America. If they aided and abetted the crime.

Vice president parents that at the naval observatory the vice presidential residence before the inauguration. Put as you point out this comes long after this election. Is over long after. Biden and Harris were projected to be the winners although worth pointing out that there's one person still has not placed a call not as Donald Trump. And also still days are remaining in the term presidency John anything we can expect in terms of pardons. And house of president preparing for his second impeachment trial. Regarding pardons I do expect we'll see at least some pardons on clear. How many more in the biggest question is will he go ahead and try to pardon himself against the advice of his own White House lawyers. On the question of of the impeachment trial that conversations the president is having on this. I am told were all over the map he is talked about mounting a full defense possibly led by Rudy Giuliani possibly not. A full defense that could include the president himself testifying. To mounting no defense whatsoever and simply declaring that the impeachment. Is illegitimate. And. And John before you go you know some of those who have now been investigator with breaching the capital of said that they were hoping that they might get a pardon from the president. Absolutely no chance of that right. You know we've we've this president. Four days little more than four days left. I wouldn't say you know I would reflect anything out but but that would be 8888 crazy thing and I certainly don't expect it. But as I said. I mean no guarantees. Not ruling it out president.

India's big day you know you load when is going through something in Arlington sales. Current drill and I just I don't know I don't trustees. And so I personally win. He was shot deal with the crisis in other wrestler moon are elderly. Aids is not an option from the at this point. Right and only what are the options are mainly talk about the of the war on mental health talk to some of about the importance of having someone who's equipped specifically to handle these types of calls to company perhaps police officers for the safety not only of the officer but also the person who's involved. And if the police department doesn't have those kinds of resources now. How should these kinds of situations be handled. In this case from the perfect example because in this case he had a good costs in bed on my birthday and good cop resource officer with mental training was dispatched to the families owned 84. That was murders east both spent to build local poor each heat gauge them in a way that was not. Our violent and wasn't what I might do normal police officer.

Then he just happens to be one of the most consequential people in this nation's history happy birthday Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Welcome back everybody and cornerstone of president elect Joseph Biden's economic plan raising the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour. Economists dispute the potential impact to our economy job markets and the country's millions of working poor we take a closer look. By the numbers seven dollars and 25 cents an hour that's our current federal minimum wage which is not increase by a penny in eleven years. It's the bottom wage in 21 states 129 states and Washington DC of set their minimum wages above the federal level. With California mandating fourteen dollars an hour now the highest statewide minimum wage in the country. And Florida a conservative state just voted to move to fifteen dollars an hour by 20/20 six. A living wage in America is at least sixteen dollars and fifty cents an hour for a family of four with two working parents it's according to researchers at MIT. Who point out that living costs vary widely. Of course by location. Raising the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour by 20/20 five could leave up to three point seven million Americans jobless as employers could potentially scaled back. But it would boost the pay of seventeen million workers in lift one point three million workers above the poverty line according to a 2019 study. By the Congressional Budget Office. And we still have lots to get to hear on prime tonight the nations set to be tracked by Pfizer in exchange for millions of doses.

After promising to release all vaccine doses rather than holding them secular ones back. The only problem despite claims to the contrary by the government yeah there's no surplus vaccines in Federal Reserve to increase regular shipments according to the Washington Post cruise draining is the federal supply.

By spring Israel believes most of its citizens will been vaccinated against Kobe but that doesn't quite tell the whole story. Virtually no Palestinians in the occupied territories have been vaccinated and all and Israel has no plan to help them any time soon. In panel reports. In the race to inoculate. Israel population of nine million kids vaccinated more citizens per capita than any other country in the world. And mark senior high in minutes ago and manner and finished. Very well Oregon. Racing ahead at speeds other countries. Canon three well it's taken them only three weeks to inoculate 20% to their population. Compared to just 3%. In the United States. By the end of march they planned to vaccinated every citizen group with sixteen years old. Some health care workers even volunteering their free time to back to NATO news we. Understand that to disaster. It emergency situation. We have a crucial time to wait and this is what we really used to do we have to me so. Their energy. They want new tool we do war do really looking forward to give the vaccine to as many as possible Israelis. But the war gains this virus isn't one yet. Israel still being arrested bike who made they've had half a million cases. Just this week. Nearly 101000 new infections were reported in one day alone in a staggering number for a country only about the salaries that new juicy. Ultimately it's always thought it spinning their eyes all of it on man. Clinton fights back to face they. Securing vaccines elite has been key to success but it's also come at a price. In exchange for ten million doses is throat culture virtually agreed to give fines from the WHIO. He age gender and other personal put on identifiable data of those getting the chapped as well as reporting side effects. And the efficacy the vaccine. Its citizens and now parts of the largest mass trial of this vaccine in the world. But for Israel success there's another side to this story has stoked tale of the haves and the have no. About pulling million Palestinians in the Israeli occupied territories of the west bank and Gaza. Have been completely left out of these rules vaccination role out. We need direction those who has missed the because the well facing. The constitution and because. The lack resources. We are those he's. So I think is. As wonderful as responsive to get that achieved through Palestinians. Doctor Mahmoud el Sheikh Ali is a doctor in the Gaza Strip. Like so many of the from I'm book is he's seen what the disease is capable. Who don't have bogged cases we don't but it cases we just have officials with the how I salute you like severe illnesses. Could because illnesses. He had too many cases the host the dialogue. Sort of patients wouldn't have acne. It can bid. The Keba fuels for more than 100%. Do two put some bishops in nearby school. Palestinians and the WHIO say the responsibility. Is only Israelis the occupying falls under the Geneva conventions to packs an eight. But Israelis say the sound of the Oslo accords. The Palestinians. Responsible for their own health cat. Gaza hospitalizations. For now at least but the fear is this a second wave he's just around the corner. When the did had a vision is doubled it wouldn't become loose. So without having to that he over the school markets. Mosques so we think and upcoming few weeks that could have couldn't fees. Just this week the Palestinian Authority reached a deal with all companies to distribute vaccines in the next two months while none would be. But there's real anger. Prime minister Mohamed stale accusing Israel of racism over boxing distribution. Israel's Health Minister rejecting that saying. It systems regardless of creed. Come full list. If there would be any shortage and they aside and there will be no shortage no shortage on the Israeli side. We would definitely be able to discuss it didn't cooperate with the Palestinians but. We do have to understand that our. First and foremost responsibility. Is to vaccinated the citizens of the stated as. But in the end it's too government fighting the same disease though both need immunity to protect their populations. Both must battle a virus the greatest all. Just like doctor Mahmoud duking Garza who's important and daily seltzer tends to hook patients more intently. Both chairing the anguish of caring for those and remain opening his. Have to explain to a nation that he's getting in to make it. And you might. Medical mine might not survive. Very difficult for me far out. To do that than to explain for the family.
