2:02 am
arlitt saenz has more from pennsylvania. >> reporter: here in pennsylvania joe biden participated in his first cnn town hall since becoming the democratic presidential nominee and he took aim at president trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic calling his actions close to criminal and calling the administration thoroughly irresponsible. now biden also took issue with recent comments from attorney general bill barr who compared the coronavirus lockdowns to slavery. biden said that it was the president's inactions that has jeopardized the freedom of americans. take a listen. >> you lost your freedom because he didn't act. the freedom to go to that ball game, the freedom of your kid to go to school. the freedom to see your mom or dad in the hospital. the freedom just to walk around your neighborhood because of failure to act responsibly. >> reporter: biden also talks about the need for an effective vaccine saying he's going to trust the scientist's decision
2:03 am
and not president trump's word alone. biden also made an appeal to working class voters framing this as a campaign between scranton and park avenue suggesting president trump has prioritized the stock market over working class americans. this was the first of a kind drive-in style town hall. featured some of the most extensive in person live questions joe biden has recently received offering a bit of a preview of what a debate might look like. biden and trump are set to face off in less than two weeks. biden saying he is looking forward to debating the president and offering a different vision for where he would take the country. laura and christine. >> arlitt, thank you so much for that. before labor day warnings were everywhere. take precautions, avoid holiday crowds, stay safe or risk spreading the virus. how did we do? since then the case curve has spiked upward. still, president trump holding another rally with no social distancing, no masks in site. he was in wisconsin where new
2:04 am
cases have almost doubled in two weeks. the president mocked the social distancing at biden's town hall. for trump, it's all about branding. >> by the way, officially this is called a protest, you know that? we no longer call it rallies. we don't use the term rally, okay? rachel knows. we don't call them rallies anymore because, you know, you're not allowed to have a political rally with more than 10 people. you're not allowed to go to church. you're not allowed to talk to anybody. you have to stay in a prison. your home has become your prison. >> these new coronavirus fallout across the country. new york city has delayed monday's start for in school learning. providence college in rhode island switched to online learning. the pandemic is taking a sweeping toll on education with low income students paying the
2:05 am
real price. an analysis of federal data shows 100,000 fewer high school seniors completed financial aid. a fan who attended the kansas city chiefs game tested positive. now people that sat near this fan must quarantine. political interference may be scaring people away. get this, a new poll shows only 51% of americans say they would get a covid vaccination. that's a 21 point drop since may. the surgeon general says the virus can be tamed now. >> look at new york city, they've gone from worst in the world to a less than 1% positivity rate for several weeks ongoing and so it proves we don't need to wait until we get a vaccine or some miracle drug to get this virus under control. we can do it right now.
2:06 am
>> contrary to that message, two people had beaches, concert halls and arcades can open at 50% capacity. parts of texas where hospitalizations are down, most businesses can now increase their capacity to 75%. former top aide to vice president mike pence is accusing president trump of gravely mismanaging the country's response to the pandemic joining the growing list of trump officials who are endorsing joe biden. olivia troy was a homeland security advisor and pence's lead staffer on the task force until she left last month. she says the president failed to protect the american public because he only cares about himself and getting re-elected. >> it was shocking to see the president saying that the virus was a hoax, saying that everything's okay when we know that it's not.
2:07 am
the truth is he doesn't actually care about anyone else but himself. the president said maybe this covid thing is a good thing. i don't like shaking people. i don't have to shake hands with these disgusting people. those disgusting people are the same people that he claims to care about. these are the people that go to his rallies today who have complete faith in who he is. >> her criticism particularly striking because of her role on the coronavirus task force, which was headed -- is headed by pence. he is dismissing her criticism of the president. he's calling her a disgruntled former employee. a federal judge blocking and reversing a wide range of changes at the u.s. postal service that could have delayed the mail ahead of the u.s. election. he accuses dejoy of problems.
2:08 am
he said they have to treat all election mail as first class and reinstall any equipment that was uninstalled if necessary to achieve that. the postal service is exploring the legal option. fbi christopher ray says russia is at it again. actively involved in the disinformation campaign. the director is at odds with the president and top advisers, including the attorney general and the acting homeland security chief but ray is standing by the intelligence. >> reporter: we certainly have seen very active, very active efforts in 2020 by the maligned foreign influence of things. social media, use of proxies, state media, online journals primarily to denigrate vice president biden and what the
2:09 am
russians see as an antirussian establishment. >> ray also says the vast majority of protestors in the streets of america are peaceful contradicting the message of violence by the president and attorney general. big news that could affect 100 million tiktok users in the united states. arm and a leg for postage. i remember setting up shipstation. one or two clicks and everything was up and running. i was printing out labels and saving money. shipstation saves us so much time. it makes it really easy and seamless. pick an order, print everything you need, slap the label onto the box, and it's ready to go. our costs for shipping were cut in half. just like that. shipstation. the #1 choice of online sellers. go to shipstation.com/tv and get 2 months free. so to breathe better, i started once-daily anoro. ♪ copd tries to say, "go this way."

accomplishments. he says getting supplies, medical supplies badly needed, getting diplomats badly back into the country after the outbreak. the big one, phase one trade deal. outside of that there are other messes. you have south china sea, the widespread allegations of human rights abuses and hong kong. those are just a few of the things. you're hearing the rhetoric very much aligned in campaign mode with what president trump has been saying, particularly when it comes to the coronavirus outbreak. take a listen. >> the chinese system was that they covered it up and penalized

2:17 am
then he and the rest of the world found out it was not true. misinformation and coverup occurred and the result was we are faced with a worldwide pandemic. and it's really a system of china and their unwillingness to admit wrongdoing that caused this whole thing to happen. a >> reporter: it was interesting to hear him come out that hard against china, especially given this is a guy with a 35 year personal relationship with president xi before he was in national leadership here in china. it seems he has shifted to align himself with president trump's campaign rhetoric. it's not surprising he's going back to his home state of iowa where he was governor for years. if he's called to help out with the campaign, he'll jump in. >> he could be a pretty valuable
