2:01 am
this anger breaks out on the streets of paris against the a vixen of migrants from a camp, french m.p.'s pass a bill that strengthens police powers a new team with a very different vision and a renewed commitment to lead the world. again. that is the message from us president elect joe biden. as he unveils top members of his administration earlier, the president elect spoke, surrounded by the men and women. he's picked to be his foreign policy and national security chiefs team that will keep our country and our people safe and secure. it's a team that reflects the fact that america is back ready to lead the world. not retreat from it. once again, sit at the head of the table, ready to confront our adversaries, and not reject our allies or to stand up for our values. well,
2:02 am
the latest moves in the transition process come as biden's margin of victory can tin used to grow. and sylvania and nevada have become the latest states to certify that president elect as the winner. i speak to who is in wilmington, delaware, that's the home state of the president elect's she had. so america's back, according to by didn't talk us through his appointments and also what they say about how he plans to run the country. well, there was an enormous amount of american exceptionalism, as you could hear from, from biden's comments that this isn't america 1st. but it is america in charge, and that's, that was shot through all the comments that we were hearing from, from these, these nominees. there was a real belief that america is the essential power and has to be involved in everyone else's affair. has basically whether frankly, whether people like it or not, that's certainly what we saw in the obama administration. and we do have
2:03 am
a lot of diversity in this cabinet, which was mentioned quite a bit. and biden suggest to that that would lead to new ideas. but even though you have a nominee who is a latino immigrant, a department of homeland security or african-american woman in the u.s. or a woman, potentially leading the intelligence community. this is very much the return of the foreign policy establishment off 4 years in the coal, not represented by tony blinken, the secretary of state, who's a great insider, who even someone who's advised joe biden, and was deputy secretary under obama and has made a lot of mistakes over the years as a result with joe biden, for example, in advocating for the war in iraq fabo hawkish than joe biden on liberal interventionism, else where he was tony blinken, a great advocate of the war in libya, for example, over the last few days, he's been talking about how you wish to be about ministration,
2:04 am
have been more militarily involved in syria, even though obama did have a huge amount of money, like a $1000000000.00 worth of weaponry was sent to syria, much of which ended up in the hands of jihad he's, he he's sort of very much of an interventionist, it's an interesting combination of the foreign. 'd policy establishment and biden, who's always a bit of a wild card. but even though they've made mistakes in the past, blinken for example, very much about how the u.s. is key to foreign policy in the world. now, we have to proceed with equal measures of humility. and confidence, you know that he, because as the president said, we can't solve all the world's problems alone. we need to be working with other countries. we need their cooperation. we need their partners. but also confidence. because america, at its best, still has a greater ability than any other country on earth to bring others together to meet
2:05 am
the challenges of our time. we should have, we know all of this has gone down very well with the markets, but i wonder how it's gone down with progressive sue, as you said, may see these appointments as just being more of the same right. i mean, the happy progress they're happy about john kerry on climate because he's clearly a very senior figure. you have the joe biden of these pledges, for example, that you know, he'll be on the national security council. so climate change will be key to policy making. but then looking at the appointments of the biden is making, there are other appointments. he's made. cedric richmond in the white house, for example. he's made a fortune from the fossil fuel industries. there is a great deal of suspicion because of the disappointment for the, of the obama, of the obama presidency. so, and indeed, you know, even all this diversity, it's all very well if they have real haynes will be leading. the intelligence community is not great for gender equality, but she's also the person who was in charge of barack obama's assassination drone assassination program should be drawing up
2:06 am
a list of people for extra judicial killing without any oversight that you don't exactly a progressive progressive hero, heroine so there is a great deal of suspicion because of what we saw in obama barrel is mobilization to try to make sure that there aren't any, any appointments who are terribly offensive, and biden seems to recognize that. and he's trying to give out some of center ground. he says, although it's so difficult, i think sometimes to recognize so well the progressive as well, which is a new foreign policy. and what's the republicans, you supported by the new libs you supported by, as well? if there is, it's going to be very interesting to see the balance these rights. ok, thank you for that chapter towns if their life for us in wilmington, delaware will transition developments as well as progress on the corona. virus vaccine does have, as i mentioned, helped to push markets to wreck or levels. the dow jones stock index reached above 30000 points for the very 1st time in its history on tuesday, in a very brief white house, the parents, donald trump, took credit for that new market high. well,
2:07 am
let's go now to our correspondent mike hanna, mike, and that is basically all that donald trump had to say, or had to talk about the dow jones despite everything else that's going on right now. indeed, yes, you said it was very brief. it was precisely 64 seconds. there are some speculation that there might have been more than that very brief comment before just leaving the podium shouted. questions from reporters president trying to use to refuse to concede, although he has now allowed the process to go ahead or is accepting the fact that the transition process is going ahead with developments is that it's being confirmed that the president elect will be receiving the presidential daily brief. now this is a collection of data of information that's presented to the president every morning or should be. there will be a copy for the president elect to prove at the beginning of every day to get up to
2:08 am
information on what developments are waiting in the day, either domestically or very important as well internationally. so this is a major development in terms of the transition, but president, as i say, refusing to concede, he's been tweeting away stores saying that he considers the election a fraud. and that he went, that very brief statement, claiming credit for the surge in the stock market. this is what he had to say. stock markets just broken 30000 never been broken. that number. it's a secret number 30000. nobody ever see it. that's the name time since the beginning of 2020. and it's the 48th time that we've broken records in during the trumpet ministration. and i just want to congratulate all the people within the administration that work so hard. and most importantly, i want to congratulate the people of our country because there are no people like
2:09 am
you. thank you very much, everybody. thank you very well, the major impacts on the surge in the stock market. clearly the end to the political uncertainty with the translation being formally signaled, as well as positively positive news about viruses, vaccines against the pandemic, and also another factor introduced. and that is the confirmation that janet yellen will be the treasury secretary. now this is going to be welcomed by the market. she was a very adept head off the federal reserve clearing a time of economic recession. so certainly her appointment. her confirmation of her point is another factor that has caused these markets, the surge, rather than president. trump's personal intervention, my canner in washington d.c., thank you. the ethiopian government says to gray, regional forces have started to surrender. the government gave the rebels until wednesday to lay down their arms or risk
