"Has delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress calling for, among other things, economic relief for hard hit Americans. Our progress these past 100 days against one of the worst pandemics in history. Has been one of the greatest logistical achievements. Logistical achievements this country's ever seen. We kept our commitment. Democrats and Republicans. Sending $1400 rescued sex to 85% of American households. Also providing rental assistance. Keeping people from being evicted from their homes. Providing loans to small businesses that reopened Maybe most importantly, thanks to the American rescue plan. We're on track. Cut child poverty in America in half. This year, the president addressed infrastructure and race jobs and families, gun control and climate change, and made a case that he has brought progress already. And intends to deliver much more over the rest of his term. We're joined now by our senior North American reporter, Anthony Zaca. Hi, Anthony. You write your online piece that his speech to Congress started is a victory lap and ended with a warning. What did you mean by that? Yeah, it's interesting. The first part of the speech as you heard there, he was touting the success with the Corona virus vaccine touting the economic growth and job growth that has happened in his 1st 100 days of his presidency. Some of which you know is momentum from the Trump presidency carrying over into Biden's administration. But then, after going through that laundry list of programs he wanted to fund particularly talking about his infrastructure spending. And social spending ended talking about the attack on the Capitol on January. 6th at also talked about how autocrats around the world looked at that attack on saw it as evidence at American democracy was failing. And he said that the United States has to prove them wrong that this is a battle between democracies and autocracies on the global stage. The United States is being challenged, and it has to come together to overcome those challenges. So he was almost using that as to create a sense of urgency to get Congress and the American public to support all of these broad plans he laid out And that implies to certain extent, bringing people together something he talked about. And yet this was unashamedly a Democrat manifesto. Wasn't he talks of trickle down economics, not working. He talked about huge spending plans. Yeah, it's a massive amount of spending and on a lot of democratic priorities, things like universal pre kindergarten free college education for the first two years, child care spending help for care for the elderly. All of these things are our democratic priorities. In addition to the other things he touched upon immigration gun control. Family, criminal justice reform and voting rights. We have to remember that he hasn't gotten any Republican support for any of the legislation has proposed so far, the coded relief bill passed entirely with Democratic votes. It looks like the infrastructure bill is going to be difficult to get Republican supports and four so he's laying out a broad agenda, but he's going to have to rely on the Democrats and Convince the American public that by on Lee rug relying on Democrats, he's still being bipartisan. But he's just being bipartisan in passing things with Republican voters support, not Republican officeholder support. Tim Scott, who gave the official Republican response made the statement that America is not a racist country that is a difficult position to take in the light of why not just current events, but decades hundreds of years of events, isn't it? It may be difficult, but it's something that many conservatives adamantly believe that the problems the United States has had with the race or problems that are in the past. We've heard people from Donald Trump on down, say that having AH black Republican senator from the South make that argument, I think gives Republicans a little more cover to be able to assert it, but It is. It is definitely a challenge for the Republican Party to try to come up with some sort of a strategy for dealing with racial divisions in this in this country. It's something that the Democrats have been trying to address is well and not always successfully. And in a word does this give President Biden a little more momentum? It's a start. He still has a lot of work ahead of him. Okay on three circa senior North America reporter Thank you very much, indeed. Plenty more to come on this speech throughout the program, including we'll hear from Republicans and, of course from Democrats as well. Now is India's second wave of the pandemic.

"Where is Bala said It's been an important moment for President Joe Biden With his first national televised prime time address last night, he spoke to the American people from the White House. Front and center is his plan to make head wagons Cove it on facilitator return to normal life, Mr Biden said Vaccines will be made available to all adults by May. Urge people to take them. If we do our part We do this together? By July, the fourth. There's a good chance you your families and friends will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout on the barbecue and celebrate Independence Day. The more I spoke a little while ago. Try North America reporter Anthony Zaca. You know, one of Joe Biden strength he has had for most of his political career is being able to exude compassion and understanding partly because of his personal history of suffering. But that was something that came through very clear in this speech. You know, he mourned the dead. He described how hard it had been for the American people to go through this past year. But then he offered some hope at the end of the tunnel, and you heard it there by talking about a July 4th. When things can begin to return to normal May 1st When people every wall, Americans don't Americans could begin to get shot. So he did have warnings that these thieves deadlines wouldn't be reached if people didn't continue to mitigate where masks and didn't volunteer for getting the vaccine, because there has been Some suspicion among some about getting the vaccine but mixing that forcefulness mixing those words of caution with words for hope. It was kind of Ah, dual speech. I think that's a good good characterization. How easy will it be for him to convince people who are skeptical about the vaccinations in particular to start taking them? Because there's there's there's a vast political divide over this. Isn't that Yeah, and part of his goal, Hey said, you know, I got the vaccine. The Vice President Khama here has got the vaccine are our significant others did. He's trying to show that it's safe. But you're right that the polls show Partisan divide on the vaccine, Just like there was one on mask mandates and other mitigation efforts. Where I think it was 40% of Donald Trump's voters are not planning on getting the vaccine are reluctant to get it. I mean, that's a remarkable number, I think for Democrats is like 70 or 80%. There's still some skepticism that kind of goes back to other vaccines. Skeptics, skeptics that Have kind of been a part of modern American politics. But when you get to talking about her community and then the ability to get past this virus, it's very important for him to try to convince everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Notable to that he talked about the need to end hate crimes and harassment against Asian Americans is, does he specifically make the link to, for example? Former president Trump describing the disease is the China virus. He didn't make it explicit, but it was fairly clear why he was saying this. It was just a day or two ago that Donald Trump sent out a press release once again, referring to it as the China virus, And I think throughout the 22 minute speech, there were references, not specifically but certainly references. You could read through the lines about Donald Trump, whether he's talking about the start of the pandemic and the silence and inaction that it was met with clearly a reference to Trump talking about the lack of preparation for a vaccine rule out of beginning of his presidential term. That off also would clearly be a reference to Trump so that reference to Asian American hate crimes. We knew we knew what he was talking about when he said that As did the American people that Anthony Zaca and North America reporter There's no indication that the Oxford AstraZeneca covert 19 vaccine is linked to an increased risk of blood clots that, according to the European Union's medicines regulator on the European Medicines agency felt compelled to make the a mountain after a number of countries including Denmark, Norway and Iceland. Temporarily suspended the use of the job. I followed reports that a small number of people have developed clots after receiving that vaccine off from all that speak to manual. Charles, who's the phone correspondent for France, 22 Day Chaveleh and joins us from burnin Morning to manual. And Can you tell us, please about this suspension and what specifically, these countries said about the use of the AstraZeneca job? Yes, there's a number of European countries, which have decided to either suspend the rollout or limited when he comes to the AstraZeneca vaccine. We're talking about Denmark, Norway, Italy, Iceland and remain Romania and in Austria, the use off one specific but off the vaccine has been suspended following the deaths off of a nurse, which who developed a blood clot. So that's where the European countries are out. But as of today, Thailand also decide To suspend its rollout awhile internationally and also at a European level You mentioned it has regulated regulators trance that there was no evidence that there was a link between does those side effects and the vaccine itself. And these countries when they suspended it. Did they suspend the use? Have they suspended it? Just because of what happened to this particular nurse in Denmark, or have they also experienced the number of cases where people have had clots in their blood, and therefore they also following the same trend? I think in Europe for four European countries, it is more acting out of an abundance off caution here. You know, this comes at the West moment for the EU rollout of the vaccine because it's already so slow, painstakingly slow, and European authorities are already getting a lot of backlash for it. They have to deal With distrust from the population, a lot of vaccines, skepticism, a swell and as you may know, Also, the relation between the EU authorities and the AstraZeneca company have been tensed tense for quite a while already because initially, AstraZeneca had met its initial goals of vaccine delivery to the EU, So this new development only adds up to a in already tense situation between AstraZeneca and the European Union. Obviously, because this is, as you say, a major blow to the company to AstraZeneca. They tried to reassure to say that the drug has been safe safe in ALS, the extensive clinical trials and now we hear the European Medicines agency backing them on that. Is that going to reassure these nations that have suspended the use there? I think on a not on a national level countries will still be afraid off, you know, allowing a vaccine that is not safe, You know. So again. This isn't out of an abundance of caution that the AstraZeneca job is suspended. Will it be suspended for a long time pending other studies? We cannot say that at this stage, this would be a major blow to the rollout in any case in the European Union. And this also, AstraZeneca's being used in the Kovacs where we know billions of millions of doses have been sent all around to low income countries. Once the situation in Germany what specifically with regard to AstraZeneca? Well, it had been initially only allowed to be used for people under the age of 65. I think that contributed also to the distressed off part of the population towards defects scene because they were thinking well, why is it allowed for younger people, but not for elderly people now, even if it has been broadly approved, the National Agency for Medicine here in Germany aligned itself to the decision with the decision of the European Agency for Medicine, which had approved Of the vaccine for any age. Well, even if that's the case, I think that's what really, you know, leads to the distress of the population towards the AstraZeneca job. Emanuel. Thank you very much for joining us.

"Prime Time address Well, President Joe Biden spoke to the American people just a couple of hours ago Front and center was his plan to make a wave to return to normal life. He says the covert 19 vaccine should be available to all adults by May on urge people to take it up. If we do our part We do this together? By July, the fourth. There's a good chance you Your families and friends will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout at a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day. And Independence Day, he said, not just in its traditional sense, but also from the pandemic. Well, we can go live to our North America reporter Anthony Zaca. Hi, Anthony. First of all, just give us a sense of the tone of the speech writers was calling it forceful but samba, which it occurs to me, they probably wouldn't have said about Donald Trump. No. You know, one of Joe Biden Strengths hey has had for most of his political career is being able to exude compassion and understanding partly because of his personal history of suffering. But that was something that came through very clear in this speech. You know, you've mourned the dead. He described how hard it had been for the American people to go through this past year.

Will it be for him to convince people who are skeptical about the vaccinations in particular to start taking them? Because there's there's there's a vast political divide over this. Isn't that Yeah, and part of his goal, Hey said, you know, I got the vaccine that the Vice President Khama here has got the vaccine are our significant others did. He's trying to show that it's safe.

That off also would clearly be a reference to trump so that that reference to Asian American hate crimes. We knew we knew what he was talking about when he said that And if President Trump then is being judged by Joe Biden President Biden is going to be judged by how he deals with the pandemic.

"Neanderthal thinking, Mr Biden said Mask wearing and hand washing was still vital in the fight against coronavirus his David Willis, citing his administration's efforts to ramp up the vaccination program, President Biden said the U. S was on the cusp of changing the nature of the pandemic. With more than 511,000 people here, having already died of the virus, he said the premature easing of basic health guidelines could lead to many more deaths. As well as lifting the mask mandate. The governors of Texas and Mississippi also announced plans for businesses to reopen a move that Mr Biden branded a big mistake. The U. S. House of Representatives has passed a police reform bill named after George Floyd, the African American man who's killing by police last year sparked nationwide protests. The legislation would ban choke holds and end racial profiling. Democratic Congresswoman Karen Bass Said the last legislation would aim to bring about a healthier culture in policing. I know that change is difficult, but I believe fundamentally that police officers don't want to work in an environment where the culture says if they are to step up if they are to say anything, if in officer is abusive, or as an officer is corrupt. And their very lives could be in danger. So one of the goals of the George Floyd Justice and Policing Act is to raise the standards of policing in America. And also to transform the culture. The bill must still be approved by the Senate before President Biden consign it into law. Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that Germany is changing its stance on the Oxford AstraZeneca corona virus.

These leading scientists warning the billions of people might not get access to vaccines in 2021 that will affect all of us by prolonging the pandemic and allowing further mutations of the virus to emerge.

After the prosecution said it incited deadly insurrection and impeachment vote is expected on Saturday are North America correspondent Anthony Zaca sums up the main arguments of Mr Trump's defense team. Not only continue their assertions that the entire trial was unconstitutional that Trump's due process was violated, but also that Donald Trump's speech didn't incite a riot on Capitol Hill because there was already plans to have a riot on Capitol Hill. There are already plans for violence and so you can't incite something that was gonna happen anyway. They also pointed towards Donald Trump's speech, saying that it should be protected under the First Amendment of the Constitution. So you taught multi range sort of defense, trying to knock down the arguments that The Democrats have made over the past two days.

"The line is our Washington correspondent Anthony Zaca. Anthony, This is a complete U turn, isn't it? It is and you have to ask yourself. Why did he decide to release this message at this point? Was it because he was being pressured externally? Was he heating or listening to those calls for his resignation, coming from even the Wall Street Journal's conservative editorial page and members of his own party on this was an attempt to head this off of the past, or did he finally decide? That you needed to speak out on his own because of the videos and the coverage of the violence of the capital were just too impossible to ignore. What's the reaction being from his supporters? You know, if you go online on some of the online media groups, where his supporters like to congregate and talk some of its more aggressive supporters, they feel dismayed by this. They feel betrayed by the president. You know, the president has criticized after the fact and scripted speeches, some actions of his supporters. Such as in Charlottesville. Back in 2017. He needed condemned the violence there after equivocating, But this instance he encouraged them to go to the capital. He had been circling January 6 on the calendar, encouraging his supporters to come to Washington, D. C. And he told him that morning, they had to be strong and fight like hell. And let the legislators know that they were stealing the election from him. So ah, lot of them he did that call They came to Washington, D. C by the tens of thousands a march To the capital, and now some of them at least feel like Donald Trump is hanging them out to dry. That is somewhat different than we've seen in the past, when Donald Trump has made comments like these changing his tone, and people praise him for being more presidential Actually stay with us. We're just gonna hear a couple of clips now thinking about those efforts to try toe remove the president from office. Leading Democrats in Congress have been urging the vice President Mike Pence to invoke this 25th amendment, which declares the president unfit for office. The leader of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, said Even if the president was not removed, he could be impeached. Speaking to the BBC, the Democratic congresswoman Debbie Dingell, agreed. I think that that's probably what is gonna happen in the House and Senate. Since the leaders have called for it. I do think that Donald Trump needs to be held accountable for what has happened. I think we've got to be very vigilant about what can happen These next 13 days that he has left that we don't see the kind of damage that we saw your country yesterday. I think It's very difficult to do that in the next 13 days, but I think you will see people. I believe my colleagues think it is very important to hold him accountable to the attack on democracy that he made and I don't I would prefer to have seen the 25th amendment because I also think it's really important that we've got to pull ourselves together that we have been pitted against each other for too long. So I'm fearful of what could happen in the next 13 days. But I don't want to see anything that divides this further. But the Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, has been a close ally of the president says he doesn't support that course of action. Do not believe that's appropriate at this point. I'm looking for a peaceful transfer of power. I'm looking for the next 14 days to reset. And we will hand off power in the traditional sense. By being a peaceful transfer. I talked to Mark Meadows this morning. The transition is going well. Is fully in place. Anthony Circus still on the line from Washington or any of these attempts to either impeach will remove the president from office. I mean, given how short time is that they're going anywhere. No. The 25th Amendment option amendment that was more designed to deal with the president who had been incapacitated in a coma, for instance, and not one who was unwilling to be removed who was of sound mind. I think those air probably unlikely, although the mere fact that there's a conversation going on signifies the gravity of the situation, But there's talk of impeachment that seems to be picking up steam within the House of Representatives. They could conceivably have a vote next week. Although there's an open question about whether the Senate would even Get to it before Donald Trump leaves office, although there's some people who say they should impeach Donald Trump after he leaves office so he can't run for president again in four years. That is another kind of an open legal debate where treading in very unfamiliar territory at this point, But it shows that Democrats feel and they're getting pressure from within their own party to do something to put down a marker to signify how outraged they are at the president's behavior this week. Anthony. Thank you very much. Indeed, a Washington correspondent Anthony Zaca. Well, let's explore a little bit Maura about what happens to the Republican Party now and indeed to President Trump's supporters. Let's talk to Timothy Snyder, professor of history at Yale University and author of a number of books, including on tyranny, and He joins US from Vienna in Austria. Welcome to the program. Just first of all, what's the storming of the capital? A Fascist act? Do you think I think I think it's well into fascist territory, and I'll tell you why. Number one, it's based in a big lie. Trump's claim that he won the election is a very large line of how did not know how you measure it. Number two, the people who actually led the invasion of the capital, and this is probably not been covered enough or themselves Fascists. They're they're white supremacists. People in groups like like the Boogaloo Boys were the proud boys in the three percenters. They're the ones who organized it. Number three. The whole story is about race. Whether it's Trump's claim that in effect, we shouldn't count black votes or whether it's Senator Cruz, talking about the compromise of 18 77, as a model, which was a time with the American South became apart eight in effect or whether it's or whether it's the hoisting of the Confederate flag inside the Capitol. Stories about race, So I think you know America's not a fascist country and obviously, but this is an event for which I think we need some of the strong concepts. Does that mean then that the Republican Party under President Trump has become a far right party? Well, if you if you mean you don't have to ask me on that. If you just look at the statistics and the various measures that the political scientists use the Republican Party as a whole is clearly in the territory of something like law and justice in Poland or or Bonds party. Feed us in Hungary. Maybe more interesting, though, is the way that the Republican Party is splitting where the conventional part of the party, which relies on Basically gaming elections is blooding away now from another part of the party, led by senators, Hawley and Cruz, which depends on something else. What were not what will be. We're not quite sure. These are the people who are trying to inherit the mantle of Mr Trump's big lie. They're the ones who rejecting the outcome of an election. On that big liars. You put it will they persist without even after what he said What we heard on the program early. What he said in that video address last night. Do you think? Oh, absolutely. I mean that that video itself contains new lies. I mean, first of all, it's not true that Mr Trump acted to send personnel to defend the capital. It was actually vice president Pence. It's not true that happened immediately..

Put themselves on the right path like girl except it is five years since the world came together in Paris to agree for the first time that every nation needs to play a part in tackling climate change.

He believes those who pollute the atmosphere with greenhouse gasses should pay a price. For that pollution. He will urge countries to end all subsidies for fossil fuels on will say taxes should move from income to carbon It is a bold agenda, putting tackling climate change at the very heart of the United Nations role, But the science is clear, the secretary general will say, unless the world reduces emissions. We face disaster. Justin role at our chief environment correspondent later today. 1600 GMT In fact, BBC World Service Radio will bring you live that exclusive hour long program with the United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres Wish Listening to news out from the BBC hundreds here, Iqbal Leading pro democracy activist in Hong Kong. Joshua Wong has been centers to 13.5 months in prison. Fellow activists Agnes Chow and Ivan Lamb will be imprisoned for 10 on seven months respectively. They were convicted for their involvement in mass protest last year found guilty of unlawful assembly. The pro democracy activists. Nathan Law who fled Hong Kong told the BBC that they all three could end up being imprisoned longer than for this initial sentence. I think they're mentally prepare for possible Joe Times, but the names off that is exceeded our expectation. And I think Thies may not be the final terms of how long they will stay in jail because the sentences could power up. Some of them having other charges, and they could possibly be prosecuted under the national security law while their stay in prison. Was Nathan Law. I've been speaking to Tom Grandy, he's editor in chief of the Hong Kong Free Press. Last year's protests, of course, were largely leaderless. These pro democracy demonstrations and unrest that originally against an extradition law on of course free assembly. Is meant to be guaranteed in Hong Kong as well. But this dates back to just over a year ago when thousands of angry protesters gathered outside police headquarters in the early months of the demonstrations protesting against the use of force. I was down there on the ground, and it was very angry scenes of people belting out slogans, including, you know. Released the martyr Shame on police bugs, whilst others were vandalizing the building throwing eggs, destroying CCTV cameras on scrawling graffiti with Let's say someone kind words for the fourth. And now, after 10,000 arrests and many months of tear gas, petrol bombs, there have been thousands of these cases now going through the courts, these three very high profile activists, of course, sentenced today. They all made the decision to plead guilty and these convictions come against the back drop of a much broader crackdown following the imposition off a national security law. Outline forest They're thinking in terms of pleading guilty. Magistrate Lily Wong in this particular case, said that they had incited acts posed a threat to personal safety to people at the scene cause disruption to traffic wasted police time and she said to deter brothers immediate imprisonment was the only appropriate option. But As you mentioned. There is a whole backdrop here of an ongoing crackdown since June in light of the national Security law that was meant to criminalize the versions of session. Phone interference. Terrorist acts, of course. This is one character Beijing certainly once off the streets. Critics have said that this law is going to be used quite broadly to target descent. And indeed, since then we have seen dozens of activists like the trio rounded up a protest. Logan has been made illegal on the protest song banned in schools and democracy books pulled from library shells. Is it your sense that there will just continue to be sporadic protests or that there will continue to be activism that will re emerge from time to time? Or are people genuinely frightened about the way in which this national security law might be used? There is a low point, I guess in the movement at the moment in terms of street protests, particularly scale that we saw last year. Anyone risking going onto the streets right now risks covert 19 social gathering fines. Action under national security law. So the year of perhaps the street protests the days are numbered. There is a lot of debate and thinking now is to what other sort of many acts of resistance or what can still be done. Under the context of this very broadly worded and quite draconian national security law, So any indication what kind of conditions they're going to be kept in in prison? Well, certainly they have already been in presents the last week they will certainly be put to work. Joshua Wong has already spent some days in solitary confinement after the officers said that something was contained in his stomach following an X ray. Agnes, it was never been to prison appeared to be a lot more distraught about the prospect she actually burst into tears as a sentencing was read out. But as for Ivan and Joshua, they will be replying to people's letters will likely be doing some sort of labor and we'll be taking it more in their stride. I imagine Tom Grandy, editor in chief off Hong Kong Free Press. There are 49 days left till President elect Joe Biden is inaugurated and in the dying days of the Trump Administration stories are emerging about preemptive pardons for President Trump's closest aides and members of his family. Let's talk to our correspondent. In Washington, D. C. Anthony circa, I've never heard of a preemptive pardon on Danny. Just tell us a little bit about who we're talking about on guac. The stories are that are coming out. The reports are that Donald Trump is considering pardoning his three adult Children. That's Donald Trump Jr. Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump, although none of them have been charged for crimes. Also Rudy Giuliani, his personal lawyer. Some of them have been investigated, for instance, Don Jr was investigated for his contacts with Russia during the 2016 election. Giuliani reportedly has been investigated for his business dealings in Ukraine on it appears that Donald Trump is concerned. According to these reports that when Joe Biden takes over the presidency, his Justice Department might start digging into these Maura whether for political purposes, in his view or otherwise, so he wants to Insulate himself against that. There is some history of preemptive pardons. Gerald Ford, the president gave a preemptive pardon to Richard Nixon, even though he had not been charged for Watergate crimes. Jimmy Carter gave preemptive pardons to all the Americans who had went to Canada to avoid the draft. So it is unusual dope. But the reality is that a presidential pardon power is fairly sweeping. It's not defined so It's a broad, unilateral power vested in the president on a pardon means that your pardon for anything that was investigated before or anything that you might face after the event. You know again. It hasn't really been tested in court. You can pardon for crimes that have not yet been charged. Conceivably, I suppose you could pardon for a crime that has yet to be committed, although that certainly has not been tested in court before, But the pardon power comes from the U. S constitution. And it says the president has the ability to pardon for federal crimes again. This is not state crimes or local crimes but federal crimes and that he can't use the pardon when he's being impeached for crimes committed during impeachment. But other than that, it is, it is a fairly untested and broad powers. So it conceivably Donald Trump has used his presidential pardon power multiple times, sometimes for Historical figures like boxer Jack Johnson or Susan B. Anthony, the women's suffragette, but also for political reasons he pardoned recently, Michael Flynn, his former national security adviser, Roger Stone, his longtime adviser. On. He's done this outside with the normal kind of procedures that have governed pardoning, But those procedures were set out to kind of give definition to the pardon power. They don't limit it, obviously, because Donald Trump has acted outside of them multiple times during his presidency. We should say that both the president and Rudy Giuliani, his personal lawyer, have denied on Twitter. Any claims of any of these discussions taking place. Just very briefly on Danny tell us about what the attorney General William Barr has been saying about the election. Well. William Bar just yesterday said that the Justice Department has been investigating accusations of electoral fraud. And even he did not see any evidence yet of such widespread fraud that would have reversed the election result in reverse the results of the election. So he is contradicting Donald Trump and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, who have said there is widespread fraud and that Donald Trump relieves the winner. It's a daylight between the Justice Department and Donald Trump. And his supporters clearly on this issue. Anthony Zaca, Our correspondent. Joining us live from our bureau in Washington. Thanks.
