The top story we're following for you today, a bitter fiscal fight is brewing in Congress now that the U.S. has reached its debt limit. President Biden says he's willing to meet with House speaker Kevin McCarthy, but says that raising the debt ceiling is an obligation not to negotiation. Meanwhile, the Treasury Department is warning of dire consequences to everyday Americans and a global financial markets should the U.S. default on its debt. If we don't meet our national debt and renew in the first time, we have a calamity there. That calamity could become reality by June 5th, according to the Treasury Department, if lawmakers can't get a deal together. The big debate, to be honest with you, is a fundamental disagreement on what we should do to cut what do we cut? Well, it's not just cutting. What do you raise? What taxes do people pay? House Republicans, especially those who demanded concessions to elect Kevin McCarthy's speaker, say they won't spending cuts before they'll agree to raise the debt limit. But The White House argues there shouldn't be any negotiation over America making good on money it's already spent. The national debt is now around $31.4 trillion. Default could compromise the treasury's ability to pay out social security or Medicare and have other negative repercussions on the U.S. economy.

"Following for you today on WTO P, new concerns about the war in Ukraine. This follows President Biden's comments regarding Russian president Vladimir Putin and his possible use of nukes. President Biden said Friday, the world is closer to Armageddon. This would be a serious mistake by Putin, but he needs to know that an advance we can stop it from happening in the first place. Congressman Mike McCall is the top Republican on the House foreign affairs committee. We see any indication from the intelligence community that he is taking steps forward to launch a nuclear threat in the Ukraine. I think we need to show that to the world. CBS News correspondent Christina ruffini, The White House says Intel officials aren't saying signs of Putin preparing to use his nukes. A truck bomb caused a huge fire and destroyed a section of a bridge that links Crimea with Russia. Russia annexed Crimea in 2014. Crimea says the blast killed three people.

"Inch or so through Monday. An old town Alexandria Luke Luger WTO P news. After being encircled by Ukrainian forces, Russia pulled troops out today from an eastern Ukrainian city that it had been using as a frontline hub. This happened not long after Vladimir Putin declared that four regions of Ukraine are now part of Russia following referendums that were widely denounced by the west. CBS Christina ruffini says Ukraine's president is now asking for fast track membership into NATO. When it comes to president zelensky's NATO application, that was one of Putin's red lines for the invasion in the first place. It was part of the justification he used claiming that NATO was trying to expand into Russian near Russian territory. So when you look at this application, NATO allies have been very supportive of Ukraine both with weapons and with rhetoric. However, they might not want to take on Russia head on, which they would be treaty bound to do if they admitted Ukraine into the alliance. So that's looking unlikely at this point.

"Came to Philadelphia Pennsylvania to give the most vicious hateful and divisive speech ever delivered by an American president, vilifying 75 million citizens plus another probably 75 to a 150.

The Republican controlled Senate in Indiana voted 26 to 20 after about three hours of debate today. Loyola law professor Laurie Levinson has more on what this means for the state and the country. Indiana is one of the first Republican controlled states to debate and put into place even tighter anti abortion laws. And they in fact would ban abortions from the time a fertilized egg is implanted in the uterus. This will make it very difficult for doctors who are trying to treat women who think they may be are not even confirmed to be pregnant.

Pentagon Reviewing Haiti's Request for Military Support

We are watching the situation very closely, Chief D o d spokesman John Kirby said if the Pentagon is still analyzing Haiti's request for military support, But in a statement, the White House said it was engaged with the Haitian government to learn more about their needs.

I think that's really where our energies are best applied right now in helping them get their arms around investigating this incident in figuring out who's culpable. The incident happened Wednesday morning when an armed hit squad entered the home of Haitian President Juvenal Malisse. Killing him and seriously injuring his wife. The assailants then fled into the capital port of France. Authorities say a squad of 26 Colombian nationals and two Haitian Americans were responsible. The Americans say they were only working as translators.
