6:02 am
was about protecting his legacy. the administration has initiated the single greatest mobilization in u.s. history, pioneering developing and manufacturing therapies and vaccines. in record time, there was no talk of the election result. this was an update on the fight against corona virus, the hope provided by a vaccine. but there was almost the slip almost an acknowledgment. his time in the white house was coming to a close. ideally, we won't go to a lockdown. i will not go, this administration will not be going to a lockdown. hopefully the, the whatever happens in the future, who knows which administrator will be, i guess time will tell. but i can tell you this administration will not go to a lockdown. the president has been adamant, he continues to fight in the courts to overturn an election. he claims without evidence was stolen from him, but he's running out of route. his campaign has dropped its action in arizona where joe biden has been declared. the winner cases in michigan and pennsylvania have run
6:03 am
into legal difficulties. law teams have quit the fight because lawsuits being dismissed by judges who seem quite exasperated with lawyers representing the trump campaign. who simply do not have facts. the president's own cyber security experts have declared the election to be the most secured in american history. something the president was keen to take credit for while at the same time, claiming it had been rigged by the democrats against him. another sign, the white house is moving towards acceptance of the result from monday, joe biden will start receiving the daily intelligence briefing. something the trumpet ministration had blocked since the election, bitin campaigns, reaction about time passing day, lack of access to current classified operations or back channel conversations that are happening really with the american people's interest as it relates to their national security interests. donald trump is arguably the most accessible president
6:04 am
in modern history, but he left the rose garden, refusing to take questions about the election result. and if his days in the white house were numbered, alan fischer, al-jazeera washington. well, trump has suffered another legal setback after a pennsylvania code through at 5 republican lawsuits alleging voting irregularities for more on that we're joined by claire finkelstein, he's faculty director of the center for ethics and the rule of law at the university of pennsylvania law school. a good to have you with this here on the program. it's trying to present conceded defeat, speaking as a seam says that there are still legal challenges pending. what would you say these latest legal defeats in pennsylvania mean for the trump campaign? they're very significant. there are 2 defeats in particular that the trump folks have been really counting on. one was that cured ballots in montgomery county,
6:05 am
namely absentee ballots where voters were contacted to come and remedy formal deficiencies in their ballots, such as failing to sign the back of the arm below. and that practice which exists not only in pennsylvania but also in georgia and in nevada. the challenges to that practice were defeated, as well as the challenge to the absentee ballots that were permitted to come in between and be counted between election day and the following friday. and that was a major playing that the trump campaign was hanging it had on, namely the hope that those would be ruled out from the count. but in any event, both the curate ballots and the ballots that came in after election day postmarked by election day in the next 3 days. even if they had won on those points,
6:06 am
it would not have been enough to reverse the tremendously that joe biden had in pennsylvania and with which he won that state. what will this is exactly the point is that not even if any of the numerous lawsuits had been won, it's still not going to change the overall picture. so would you say the damage has already been done because this surely comes down to the election integrity and with the statements coming out from the trunk campaign? i mean, why would still a top supporters believe that these legal challenges have been fairly dismissed? well, that's right, that legal challenges could not have made a difference to donald trump, even if all of the legal challenges in all of the states had prevailed. donald trump could not have won this election. and indeed,
6:07 am
the number of electors that joe biden won the election with was the same number of electors that donald trump characterized as a landslide. in his own case, donald trump would have to reverse pennsylvania and all the other swing states in order to reverse that decision here, and that will not happen. it cannot be done. what the supporters believe about these decisions is almost up to donald trump because many of donald trump, supporters seem to believe what ever he tells them. so if he says that these decisions were corrupt, unfortunately, they may believe that, but one hopes that the weight of evidence, as well as these statements of his own department of homeland security, saying that there was no fraud involved in this election may finally get through to donald trump supporters and hopefully to donald trump himself with
6:08 am
a clear finkelstein joining us there from a true in massachusetts. thank you very much. fear analysis. thank you. the u.n. is warning that civilian deaths in the conflict in ethiopia is too great. a region could amount to war crimes more than 11000 refugees have fled to see done, saying they're escaping from scenes of horror back home that are growing concerns. the conflict could destabilize the entire region. have a morgan reports from guitarist near the sea, done ethiopia border more if you can refugees arrive at medina in sudan's good out of state. they're fleeing fighting in ethiopia's degree region. arrived here 4 days ago with her children and pregnant sister from she says the fighting in the region forced her and her family to flee with nothing but the clothes on their backs. men that i did not like that, we saw people being slaughtered, there was blood all over. we fled because we didn't want to die. some women lost
6:09 am
their husbands. we came with nothing but our lives, no money. these clothes were given to me by the people here. thousands of refugees have crossed into sudan over the past week. many recount similar stories from the region where the if you being government has imposed a telecommunication blackout since the start of an offensive against the people's liberation front. the government wants to get rid of the chief. so if the people are living in conflict, their people have been slaughtered with knives, pregnant, women have had their bellies opened, the government is bombing civilians and killing us all. so these authorities have closed borders with it since the start of the conflict. and there are challenges in responding to the influx of refugees, aid organizations, say there shortages in relief services, which that's because up until last week, this place was largely an abandoned town. and even though this is a temporary shelter for refugees before the camps elsewhere arrive seeking safety
6:10 am
on an already dark humanitarian situation. refugees here say there are shortages of drinking water and food. so dense commission for refugees says nearly $1000.00 people are being which is to daily and have called for more action to respond to the situation. resurfacing of refugees here is great and we're hoping to authorities, international community chain to be in because the situation is unbearable. there are so many refugees coming in, most of them walking for hours and days. most of them are scattered in farms nearby, sticking their way here. new refugees are being every hour, day and her family try to settle into what is now their new home. she says she doesn't know how long they'll be here. but until the fighting stops, she says you want to go back to make a draw. and ethiopia, people, morgan on to 0. medina to money and good life. sudan. as are both, john hasn't forced a curfew in areas that it's captured in the go about. it comes ahead of armenia's, handover of land to azerbaijan. scores of ethnic armenians have begun fleeing the
6:11 am
areas that will be handed over some who set fire to their former homes, where the handover of power. so if the deal between armenia and azerbaijan, that ended 6 weeks of fighting over the disputed region or up to her need, has more from the governor, kind of acts regional capitals, the kind of carrots, this city has been hit hard because during the last days, additional in became most intense as various forces were getting closer and closer to stefana care. and you see scenes of destruction like this a bit randomly all over the city. now we were told that this specific area was hit on november 8th. so one day before the cease fire agreement was signed, we spoke to the owner of this furniture shop. he is going to load whatever he has left to salvage onto the truck and take it to your wherever we are outside of the pond occurred on the road. and actually it is a russian checkpoint,
6:12 am
a few 100 meters away from here that we're not allowed to film. now as there in force is where the vicinity went to ceasefire agreement came into effect. prime minister has been saying that that's exactly why he signed that agreement. but the people we spoke to here said that they received little support by either army or the international community, and that they feel betrayed where some avenge of fate has more from the very capital baku. well this is a curfew that has been put into place in most cities in other by jan and there is a 9 pm curfew that starts at last until 6 am in the morning. and this is something that they are implementing in the areas that are by joining forces have taken as well. the police stations that have been operating in these areas which were not under other by johnny control, were shifted to areas under azerbaijan's control. now the government, the president has told them that these police stations and their employees should
6:13 am
move into the areas which are now under the control of the forces and implement those curfews. they should be maintaining law and order. and also making sure that the area is secure, making a note of the military hardware. there are whether there are any land mines are in secure buildings. so that is why there is a curfew. but most of these bases up across the line of contact are not inhabited by people because of the fighting, either people from either side, whether it was the armenian side or the other by johnny side have moved to their respective countries. so that's why they are going to be going in, regardless of the timings of the curfew. these are void of civilians. so a lot of people are not there and these curfews are going to be more symbolic than actually trying to keep people indoors. still to come here on al-jazeera, one of south africa's most powerful politicians is in court corruption charges in a trial that could splits the governing and see party and the u.s.
6:14 am
records more than 100000, new daily coronavirus cases. in physics, one of the hardest hit states we can say goodbye to each other. finally, it's been a long lived storm, and here it is over the water. now it's now going to disappear into the atlantic. it inhouse the rain up the east coast and has been flooding from britain still some rain to come, but lousy isn't improving. picture the cold to spread so much snow in the cascades in the rockies. the code itself is spreading across the plains. states now are coming out with this fairly warm weather and you know what happens when the cold reaches the warm and you start develop showers, then thunderstorms. these could really be quite dangerously nasty with significant snow going through parts of ontario on the northern edge as well. and there's more
6:15 am
to come. the pacific's providing yes, more rain, but low levels of washington, maybe oregon and stuff of course inland. so that we said goodbye to eater, we watch another development here, i think is will stay as a tropical depression, which means it's a trouble for shipping, but it will spread showers or at least induce showers as far north as to make your then down to the north or south america and is certainly heading further west where you don't really want to be. but that's how we go to the end of the weekend. the showers again being sun to fall in eastern mexico to cause the still flooding in these in southern mexico from each other. so this is not a particularly good sign of a multi-million dollar online sex scam in the philippines is blackmailing men from around the wild. one on one east uncovered, i was small time soon became a criminal and on al-jazeera.
