  • 1461 - Fauci: “All things considered, we’re not in a good place”

    Covid-19 cases are at record-breaking levels and with a possible surge in the U.S. before Christmas, White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Anthony Fauci says “all things considered, we’re not in a good place.” Moderna and Pfizer have both officially filed for FDA emergency authorization for its coronavirus vaccines and U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar says “we could be seeing both of these vaccines out and getting into people’s arms before Christmas.” William Haseltine is the Chair and President of ACCESS Health International. He tells AC360 the vaccine news is promising but there are still a lot of unanswered questions. Plus, President Trump said he’ll be coming to the Georgia to campaign for Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, who face two Senate runoff elections in January. Senator Perdue’s opponent, Jon Ossoff, joins AC360 to react to the President’s visit and says Perdue is griping about Trump in private but in public he’s “indulging the President’s fantasy that he actually won.” Airdate: November 30, 2020 Guests: William Haseltine Jon Ossoff To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy

  • 1460 - Millions of Americans traveling despite CDC warning

    One health expert is warning Thanksgiving could be “the mother of all super spreader events” and Dr. Anthony Fauci is asking Americans to keep indoor gatherings “as small as you possibly can.” Millions are traveling for Thanksgiving despite the CDC recommending not to. More than 261,000 people have died from Covid-19 and the U.S. is seeing record hospitalizations. Dr. James Phillips is the Chief of Disease Medicine at George Washington University Hospital. He tells AC360 “people are going to die because they’re choosing to go home for Thanksgiving” and “if we had proper messaging from the top, from the beginning, more lives would’ve have been saved.” Plus, President Trump has pardoned former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. Carrie Cordero is a CNN National Security Analyst and a Senior Fellow Senior Fellow at the Center for a New American Security. She joins AC360 to react to the President’s decision and says she thinks this is “just the beginning of the pardons that we’re probably going to see between now and January 20th.” Airdate: November 25, 2020 Guests: Dr. James Phillips Carrie Cordero To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy

  • 1459 - Biden: “I want this country to be united”

    President-elect Joe Biden says he would consider appointing Republicans who voted for Trump to his cabinet because he wants “this country to be united” and “we can't keep this virulent political dialogue going.” Biden’s transition team has been in contact with all federal agencies, including the White House, just 24 hours after the GSA said the official transition process can begin. The President-elect says all outreach has been “sincere.” Christine Todd Whitman is the former Republican Governor of New Jersey but endorsed Biden in the 2020 election. She joins AC360 to discuss how Trump delayed the transition and still refuses to accept the results of the election. Plus, the U.S. is approaching 260,000 Covid-19 deaths and has seen another day of record hospitalizations with at least 88,080. Dr. Craig Spencer is the Director of Global Health in Emergency Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center. He tells AC360 the system can’t last that much longer if we continue to have such a crush of new cases throughout the country.

  • 1458 - GSA says Biden transition can formally begin

    The General Services Administration has informed President-elect Joe Biden and his team that the Trump administration is ready to begin the transition process more than two weeks after the former Vice President was declared the election winner. In a letter, GSA administrator Emily Murphy said she wasn’t pressured by the White House to delay the formal transition. Now that the transition can officially begin, current administration officials can coordinate with the incoming Biden team. David Gergen is a former Presidential Adviser to Presidents Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Clinton and is also a CNN Political Analyst. He tells AC360 he thinks Trump did the right thing but it’s vital that he tells his base and the whole country that Joe Biden is a legitimate president and he is not put there by fraud. Plus, Covid-19 hospitalizations and cases are rising with Thanksgiving only days away. The CDC is advising people to not travel to see family and friends. White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Anthony Fauci said what worries him most is “the immediate situation with people traveling from different places, coming home for Thanksgiving.” Dr. William Schaffner is a professor at the Division of Infectious Diseases at Vanderbilt Medical Center. He joins AC360 to discuss his concerns for the upcoming holiday season.     Airdate: November 23, 2020   Guests: David Gergen Dr. William Schaffner   To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy

  • 1457 - Senior GOP lawmakers grow anxious over Trump’s efforts to overturn election results

    Few Republicans have spoken out publicly but a growing number of GOP lawmakers are growing restless and pushing back on Trump’s effort to overturn the election results.  Still, it seems most of the other GOP members are afraid to anger Trump, or the party’s base who could help decide the winner of the upcoming twin runoff elections in Georgia. William Cohen is a former Republican Congressman and Senator who also served as Defense Secretary under Pres. Clinton. He joins AC360 to discuss how he thinks the GOP and the President are handling the election loss. Plus, the President’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., is the latest in the Trump inner circle to test positive for coronavirus. Trump Jr. has spread a significant amount of false information about the deadly virus, including telling Fox News that the number of Covid-19 deaths is “almost nothing.” More than 254,000 have died in the U.S. and an influential model projects that number will rise to 471,000 deaths by March 1 assuming 40 states’ governments impose or re-impose social distancing and other mandates. If that doesn’t happen, the death toll could reach 658,000. Dr. Chris Murray is the director of the group at the University of Washington that’s been working on these models throughout the pandemic. He tells AC360 the numbers are going up faster than expected and he thinks one of the reasons is people are not being as cautious.     Airdate: November 20, 2020   Guests: William Cohen Dr. Chris Murray   To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy
