1:01 am
azerbaijan as the government announces it now controls the city of shoes in disputed neck or knock out about. us president elect joe biden has declared it's time to heal a deeply divided america even as his predecessor still refuses to concede defeat in a bishop before presidential election biden found not to divide but to unify and called on americans to give each other a chance reaching out to the $70000000.00 people who did not vote for him his running mate kemel harris will be the 1st woman black american and american of asian descent to serve as vice president and she paid tribute to the women who paved the way for her victory donald trump meanwhile is threatening multiple
1:02 am
lawsuits in an attempt to challenge the results but election officials in states across the country say there has been no evidence of significant fraud while biden has spent his 1st sunday as president elect attending a church service with his family in his hometown of wilmington delaware planning for his presidency has already begun and the coronavirus task force will be launched by his team on monday former president george w. bush was congratulated biden on his victory but top. republicans in congress have still not acknowledged biden as the winner. well let's speak to our white house correspondent kimberly halkett in washington d.c. kimberly in the weeks and months leading up to the election you often mentioned that it may not be quite as clean cut as oh look we have a we have a winner in my get messy and it looks like it has got messy but it also looks like the biden campaign is just going ahead doing what they feel they have to how much
1:03 am
attention is trump's legal issues having in the u.s. . well there is still attention being paid to it particularly by the more than $70000000.00 americans that you point out did not vote for joe biden but voted for donald trump the argument from the truck campaign is and this is one that we've heard from the beginning of dumb terms presidency is that the media is allegedly by lee biased in this country and so as a result he is pushing back not only on the call by the media to project joe biden as the winner but also in its failure he believes to fully cover the legal challenges until this vote is officially certified in mid december and we're waiting for a lawsuit to be discussed in a press conference by the trump campaign that's coming up in the next hour we are watching that it sort of indicative of what the trend campaign is alleging in a number of different states given the fact that this was
1:04 am
a election where americans were divided they feel they were all voting irregularities alleged to be investigated and nevada is the latest state where this is being highlighted the campaign saying that there were ballots cast allegedly by people who had moved away or people that were dead and how does this happen well because of covert 19 a lot of people were mailed ballots that they did that asked for and they could have the option to mail the man or they could vote in person and so the campaign is saying that this is given and i'm precedented opportunity for there to be voter irregularities so that is why we have so many lawsuits going on in so many states but as you pointed out barbara the critics would argue that this isn't going to be enough to change the ultimate outcome of the vote and we should point out this is what some members of trump's own republican party are saying that in fact this would not change they're pushing him to concede but even the 1st lady malani
1:05 am
a trump is on the president's side in fact she weighed into the controversy which is rare for her saying we must protect her to mock. with complete transparency so president not expected to appear before the cameras in fact there's been a live at the white house he says he's going to press on with these legal challenges we'll see a little develops in the coming days can really health care outside the white house there can really thank you. well let's go and see what the biden campaign is doing mike hanna joins us live now from wilmington delaware so as we were hearing from kimberly mike the whole legal process is starting from the trump campaign side but the biden team seems to be going ahead as planned and preparing for the transition process. joe biden clearly not being distracted by these numerous illegal initiatives being launched by the trump campaign the biden campaign has had a whole set of lawyers lined up for a long period of time now the boiler room call they are being dispatched to contest
1:06 am
these claims in various parts of the united states but biden and his vice president elect a couple of terrorists are focusing in on what their policy is going to be and they want to move very very quickly the priority as we heard from joe biden to combat the pandemic to start initiating a plan that has been months in the making to try and cut back on this massive incidence of the pandemic throughout the country to the send biden will be announcing in the next 24 hours a coronavirus task team now this will be headed by a former surgeon general dr murphy who was in fact and serve the 1st 2 years under trump before basically being fired by president trump also this task force will be a former f.d.a. commissioner of the food and drug administration so clearly this is going to be a heavyweight task force biden has been consulting medical experts for months now
1:07 am
in terms of what are the best moves to take against a pandemic he's likely to be advising governors across the country to start implying implying mask mandates all these issues are coming to a head but what we will hear tomorrow is the 1st tangible signs of exactly what joe biden and his administration will do with regard to covert obviously there's 9 to 10 weeks until inauguration day this obviously a major problem for joe biden given the fact that his previous sesar has say that it's shown little intent in effectively combating the pandemic and that's 9 weeks in which even more americans are likely to be infected as a country moves through a winter but. policy moving forward the 1st time she will sign off the new biden agenda will become apparent in the next 24 hours when he announces the composition of his coronavirus task force and outlines exactly what he intends them to do mike
1:08 am
hanna with the latest from wilmington in delaware which is joe biden's home state mike thank you. well while the u.s. president donald trump as we were hearing has so far refused to concede the election republican senator mitt romney says trump will accept the result if his legal challenges fail he also cautioned against some of the language being used by the president i think one has to be careful in the choice of words i think i think would you say that the election was corrupt or stolen or rigged but that's unfortunately rather rhetoric that gets picked up by authoritarians around the world and i think it also discourages confidence in our democratic process here at home and and with the battle going on right now between authoritarianism and freedom why i think i think it's very important that we not use language which which can encourage. a course in history which would be very very unfortunate. well president elect joe biden has promised
1:09 am
a more traditional take on foreign relations following trump's america 1st policy biden says he'll cement old alliances like nato and be tough on russia he's also pledged to rejoin the world health organization and the paris climate agreement on diplomatic editor james bass says there will be relief amongst us allies over the result but things are unlikely to just go back to the way they war before trump. certainly they are breathing a very big sigh of relief most european leaders and they're hoping that what they've seen so far from the speech in wilmington it wasn't about foreign affairs but it was the speech of a very traditional president they're hoping that the u.s. is going to return to that very traditional u.s. role which means taking part in an international institutions taking part with its allies in its alliances the most important being nato but i have to say there are 2 things to say on the other side of the tally one is that president elect biden
1:10 am
faces an amazing set of challenges he's taking over at the time of code 19 globally over a 1000000 people have been killed the worst recession the central we've got to gloat growing clark at time of crisis so he's got a lot on his plate the other thing is i think that other countries around the world and particularly the u.s. as our allies won't forget the trump years they know how close this election was they know that technically president trump could run again in 4 years time and if it's not president trump there may well be another trump ian counted up with the same sort of agenda so i don't think they're going to take the u.s. role for granted in the way perhaps they have ever since the 2nd world war. well and other reaction enter nationally keeps on coming in saudi arabia is now congratulated joe biden on his victory over donald trump mohammed bin sound man waited more than 24 hours before sending out a message for biden and vice president elect camel harris the crown prince says
1:11 am
a strong relationship our had a strong relationship with trump and the criticism of the kingdom's military intervention in yemen human rights record and the murder of. biden has pledged to reassess america's ties with the arab nation. palestinian president mahmoud abbas is also for graduated joe biden in a statement that indicates he is ready to end his 3 year political boycott of the united states about pictured here with biden in 2016 said in a statement that he looks forward to working with joe biden in strengthening palestinian american relations he has refused to deal with the white house and strums decision to recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel in 2017 and move the u.s. embassy there from televisa. and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu one of donald trump's closest international allies if not the closest has paid tribute to the outgoing president. for myself and for all
1:12 am
citizens of the state of israel i again thank president truman for the great french shown to the state of israel and to me personally i congratulate him for recognizing jerusalem and the golan for standing up to iran for the historic peace accords to bring be american israeli alliance to unprecedented heights thank you president trump. let's go back now to domestic american issues and the continuing i guess election there because of them across the party says it plans to pour unprecedented resources into to run off senate races in georgia coming up in january the election will likely to side with the democrats can win seats that they need to gain to control the senate are going to aim is covering developments from atlanta in georgia and that tasha georgia was actually the only keep it incredibly interesting as a state when it came to the presidential election a state that has historically been republican now really
1:13 am
a way for thin difference between the 2 and it seems that it's not just going to be for the president but also the senate. absolutely and for no matter where you fell on the political spectrum many americans felt exhausted by an election cycle that was full of tension and a most americans will be able to move on but georgians will not because in the next 9 weeks they will hear more campaigning from senate candidates and they will be bombarded by political ads as both the democrats and the republicans in georgia vie for these 2 senate seats they're currently held by republicans but what happened is a majority in both cases no one got a majority of votes as required by georgia law fuss making the races go to a runoff on january 5th and historically there's a concern that not
1:14 am
a lot of people particularly democrats show up for runoff elections so you can expect the democrats and the republicans to make a major push in the next 9 weeks to try to attract those votes and they will be saying what is at stake is control of the senate on the democratic side we spoke to grassroots organizers on saturday who said we'll celebrate today but on sunday the work begins a new these grassroots organizations are largely credited with what we're seeing as a possible we don't know if it's permanent but at least for this cycle a shift in the political wins in georgia as more of a showing for democratic candidates and the way they were able to do that was about a decade of 1 organizing getting out the vote particularly in communities of color and combat in voter suppression now these same organizations are trying to do it again they're raising money several 1000000 dollars has already been raised for one
1:15 am
group and they're attempting to register by some estimates $30.00 to $40000.00 new voters by december to vote in this runoff election. this is still very much even though trump won the state by 5 percent in 2016 he is now trailing biden by more than 10000 votes but this state is still very divided tromp supporters gallop gathered in front of the capitol on saturday to claim that the election was being stolen from trump despite the fact there is no evidence of any voter fraud that is surface just yet but it gives you an idea of the rancor and that exists in this state and that voters will likely continue to be surrounded by in the coming weeks as they head into a runoff election on january 5th yeah the divisions are not going to win the election results come in with the latest from atlanta georgia thank you. and still
