By March, Social media critics gave low marks to the Super Bowl. They called out fans who were seen not wearing masks, and they were steamed about what looked like a lack of social distancing. Only about 22,000 fans were allowed into the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Around. 30,000 seats actually were filled with cardboard cut outs. But there was video of fans mulling around in and around the stadium in crowded situations, Many not wearing masks. President Biden used what's become a traditional pre Super Bowl interview to signal some flexibility when it comes to proposed covert stimulus relief checks for Americans. ABC NEWS White House correspondent Karen Travers is with us. Good morning, Karen. Good morning. You give us an idea of what the president too used to that high profile the platform to say it was a very wide ranging interview as these Super Bowl pregame interviews tend to be. It's a tradition for the network that's broadcasting the Super Bowl to be able to sit down with the president in a big piece of Ares during the many, many hours of football talking ahead of the game. I think the big headlines on covert relief certainly the things that many Americans are caring about the direct payments. The president said yesterday that he is not budging on the $1400 figure for the checks that he wants to go out to most Americans. So 1400 combined with the 600 that went out in December, when that bill was passed gets to the 2000 that was so talked about at the end of last year. He is not negotiating, he says on 1400, but what he is considering willing to negotiate it. Who gets it? His proposal calls for Americans making up to 75,000 to get those checks. He says that that could be more targeted to make sure that those who need it most will get it. Republicans in that counter proposal that they had put out last week and said up to $50,000 a year for income, so stay tuned on that it's certainly something that where you could see some wiggle room. But I think a big headline is again He is not budging on dropping that number from 1400 to lessen that one thing that likely peaked to the interest of parents is talking about the schools reopening. What do you have to say? Yeah. Yeah, he said, this is a national emergency. What is happening with women leaving the workforce and the struggles for working parents right now. Genuine national emergency. He also says he thinks it's time for school to reopen safely safely is what he underlying, but you know, that is so up for debate right now, depending on who you're asking what constitutes safe, the president said that you have to have fewer people in the classroom, so social distancing well, that means not everybody's gonna be able to go back. Of course, the schools are crowded and don't have extra space. You know, he says, Ventilation systems have to be reworked. That cost money We're expecting at some point this week. He says early as Wednesday for the CDC toe layout. What they say are the minimum requirements for schools to reopen safely. This has been highly anticipated. That doesn't mean they're telling states and local district what to do, but this is going to be a metric that I think teachers unions, school administrators state local officials can point you to say we have to hit that in order to do this safely. One of the most poignant moments of that interview was when the president was asked about the book that his son Hunter, has written. Yeah, This is really striking, and he was visibly emotional voice was trembling. Anything don't want that. He's at a loss for words at one point as he talked about his son, Hunter struggle with alcohol and drug addiction. He has a book coming out this spring, where he details that journey, and the president says it gave him hope. Reading it, he says, quote. I mean, it was like my boys back hey later said, You know that there's not a family that anybody knows. It doesn't have somebody in their family that had a drug problem or an alcohol problem. And then you know, I think When he talked about this not frequently, But when he did as a candidate, including one of the debates, I think those were very relatable moments on.

"Be coming from the Senate side. I'm not sure if they're leaving the building from the Senate side. But some professor, it seems to be shouting. But But what struck me this afternoon with the fact that there didn't seem to be while there were a ton of vehicles, police vehicles it didn't seem to be. Ah, ah lot of police officers. Outside, at least so I don't know if they were inside trying to get the situation under control or again if they were just letting protesters wear themselves out outside, But there seems to be a lot more. There's a bigger presence outside right now. Maybe season is delicate Terra with us from the grounds of the U. S Capitol, where police are trying to restore order after protesters supporting President Trump turned violent and thousands of writers breached barricades overwhelmed police as Congress was trying to certify the victory of President elect Joe Biden, who said. Earlier that the capital had been under siege. And these images that we have never seen before were indeed quite alarming. With members of law enforcement guns drawn, pointing at protesters, a number of arrests have been made and that law enforcement presence On. Lee grows even as lawmakers hoped to reconvene later tonight to continue the electoral college vote count. In the meantime, the only thing we have heard from President Trump is a minute long Twitter video. Maybe she's Karen Travers covers the White House. Any sign the president's going to address any of this this evening? We've been asking White House officials since that video message came out on Twitter, If that would be it. I was told by one official that we shouldn't be preparing for the president to say anything else tonight. But, you know, they never rule it out. And the reporters there that are in the pool that are assigned to the president for the day or we're gonna be standing by. Until there is what's called a lid, which means that's it for the night. You're not gonna hear from the president. They've been doing that really late recently at the White House just because the president's been keeping some pretty late hours in the West Wing, not because doing anything in front of reporters or cameras. But just they want to have everybody close by in case he does decide to talk. So I think we'll see that again. Tonight Just in case the president decides to come out. But Erin, I got to say, I think it was really striking that the president who has the ability to walk into the White House briefing room it is, you know, a 42nd walk from the door of the Oval Office through a hallway. Down a couple steps and then you're at the White House briefing room podium where you could be live around the world in one second. He didn't do that today. You know, he went to the Rose Garden. He taped a message. He put it on Twitter and sure, we broadcast that on ABC Audio and our colleagues and television. We're doing the same thing, but it's different, and I think that was really notable given that Joe Biden had just said. In Wilmington, Delaware, that the president needed to go on national television and call for his supporters to call end this siege of the U. S Capital. It was the president who's incredibly media savvy. You remember it was three months ago to two months ago, only actually made his three where the president when he had Cove it, you know when he left the White House to go to Walter Reed and then a couple days later came back to the White House. After he had received his treatment, and all of it was time to the evening newscast. 6:30 P.m. that beautiful shots of the helicopter. He was so clearly aware of the power that he could use through the media to get a message out that message that he was feeling good. I think it's notable then that we're not seeing him do that tonight. We've seen a couple of tweets. We saw that message of one minute. It was put out through his Twitter account. But the president could certainly be doing more. He could certainly be saying more Hey, had a lot to say earlier this afternoon when he spoke for about 70 minutes at that rally, just a couple blocks south of the White House. And at that rally, Aaron, he even said At one point, he might walk up to the Capitol with those demonstrators. He didn't he went back to the White House, but he told them all to go to the capital to go and make their voices heard, and then within the hour Chaos started unfolding up at the Capitol building. NBC's Karen Travers, our White House correspondent. Once that chaos unfolded, it has not stopped. It has been going on for hours. Although more law enforcement officers are now trying to gain control of what has gone on, we'd seen lawmakers cowering under their desks or behind.
