"Coming up on five minute news. Trump targets vote's certification in late bid to block biden. Cdc begs americans not to travel for thanksgiving and mnuchin polls plug on some pandemic lending programs. It's friday november twenty. I'm anthony davis president-elect. Joe biden's winning. Tally is approaching record. Eighteen million votes democratic bastions continue to count ballots biden has already set a record for the highest number of votes for a winning presidential candidate and donald trump is also notched a high water mark of the most votes for a losing candidate with more than one hundred and fifty five million votes counted and california and new york. Still counting turnout stands at sixty five percent of all eligible voters the highest since one thousand nine hundred eight donald trump and his allies taking increasingly frantic steps to subvert the results of the twenty twenty election including summoning state. Legislators to the white house as part of a long shot bid to overturn joe. Biden's victory among other last ditch tactics personally calling local election officials who are trying to rescind their certification votes in michigan suggesting a legal challenge that pennsylvania set aside the popular vote there and pressuring county officials in arizona to delay. Certifying vote tallies election law. Experts see it as the last dying. Gasps of the trump campaign and say biden is certain to walk into the oval office. Come but there is great concern. That trump's effort is doing real damage to public faith in the integrity of us elections. The increasingly desperate and directing moves not expected to change the outcome of the election. Where biden has clinched the two hundred seventy electoral college votes needed to win including a second victory in georgia after a recount but the president's constant barrage of baseless claims he's worked to personally sway local officials who set by votes and his allies refusal to admit he lost is likely to have a lasting negative impact on the country. Legions if he supporters don't believe he lost trump's allies of homed in on the way that the president's early lead in michigan and some other states on election night slipped away as late votes came in casting his evidence of something nefarious but a massive influx of mail in ballots because of the coronavirus pandemic leans largely to biden who encouraged his supporters to vote by mail and those votes with loss to be counted sit appeared trump had an edge when really he didn't during a press conference in wilmington delaware on thursday biden said americans are witnessing incredible irresponsibility incredibly damaging. Messages are being sent to the rest of the world about how democracy functions. I just think it's totally irresponsible with corona virus. Surging out of control. The nation's top public health agency pleaded with americans on thursday. Not to travel for thanksgiving and not to spend the holiday with people. From outside their household it was some of the firmest guidance yet from the government on curtailing traditional gatherings to fight the outbreak the cdc issued recommendations. Just one week before thanksgiving at a time. When diagnosed infections hospitalizations and deaths skyrocketing across the country in many areas the healthcare system is being squeezed by a combination of sick patients filling up beds and medical workers. Falling ill themselves. The cdc is recommending. That thanksgiving hosts take added precautions. Gathering should be outdoors if possible with people keeping six feet apart and wearing masks and just one person serving the food whether americans heed the warning is another matter. The deadly comeback by the virus has been blamed in part on pandemic fatigue and lack of federal leadership with the president and his surrogates refusing to wear masks or social distance. Us treasury secretary steven mnuchin said on thursday that key pandemic lending programs at the federal reserve would expire on december thirty first putting the outgoing trump administration at odds with the central bank potentially adding stress to the economy. As president-elect joe biden organizers his administration in a letter to fed chair jerome powell mnuchin said the four hundred and fifty five billion dollars allocated to the treasury under the kazaks last much of it set aside to support fed lending to businesses nonprofits and local governments should instead be available for congress to reallocate. The announcement was not expected by fed officials. Who said this week that the programs should be extended untold mnuchin. So immediately after his decision was made public the announcement could signal potential trouble. For the biden administration. The programs particularly the main street and local government lending programs raise the prospect of trillions of dollars in central bank credit flooding into an economy that had been partially shut down in the spring because of the pandemic the trump team has prepared legally required transition memos describing policy challenges but there are no discussions about actions. They could take all pulls an official said. The goal is to set so many fires that it would be hard for the biden administration to put them all out..

Both groups have broad leeway in how they can use the funds leadership pacs such as save. America are often up by prominence political figures to spend money on other candidates while also paying for personal expenses such as travel and hotel stays. The disclosures would allow trump and the rnc to channel the donations into other political causes campaigns such as the too high stakes january senate runoff races in georgia that could determine control of the senate and a likely to rank among the most expensive races in us history. That means that before dollar goes to the recount fund save america would receive five thousand dollars and the rnc around three thousand three hundred donations to the recount committee illegally limited to two thousand eight hundred the fundraising pitches have channeled trump's rage and his refusal to accept the results of an election that major media outlets cold on saturday for his democratic opponent.

A federal appeals court ruled yesterday that the government can no longer make asylum-seekers wait in Mexico while their cases wind through the US Immigration Courts. The setback for the trump administration may prove temporary if it appeals to the US Supreme Court which has consistently sided with the president on immigration and Border Security policies the remain in Mexico policy known officially as migrant protection protocols took effect in January last year in San Diego and gradually spread across the border. Nearly sixty thousand people have been sent back to wait for hearings and officials believe it is a big reason why illegal border crossings plummeted around eighty percent from thirteen year high in May reaction to the was swift among immigration lawyers and advocates who've spent months fighting with the administration over a program they see as a humanitarian disaster subjecting hundreds of migrants to violence kidnapping and extortion in dangerous Mexican border cities. Hundreds more have been living in squalid encampments. Just across the border as they wait for their next court date in November the administration began sending asylum seekers from Honduras and El Salvador. Guatemala denying them a chance in the United States and instead inviting them to apply in the strife-torn Central American nation under another new policy Mexicans and Central Americans who fail initial screening a rapidly deported without leaving border patrol stations which gained notoriety last year for homeland security internal watchdog reports of squalid conditions in some Texas locations. The screening interview is designed to take place in one day and any appeals to an immigration judge within ten days asylum seekers were given up to nineteen minutes to contact a lawyer. Asylum has been granted in less than one percent of the roughly thirty five thousand cases. That have been decided. Only five percent are represented by attorneys many of whom are reluctant to visit clients in Mexico. Stocks sank again yesterday after another wild day on Wall Street that handed the market.

More companies are warning investors. Their finances will take a hit because of disruptions to supply chains and sales government's taking increasingly drastic measures as they scramble to contain the virus. The damage from a week of almost relentless selling was eye-popping. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell three thousand five hundred eighty three points or twelve point four percent.
