christi paul. president biden meets with the president of south korea, to strengthen their alliance. back at home, his domestic challenges are mounting. >> one of them includes the baby formula shortage. we have parents this morning that share their story as they struggle to find a supply for their premature baby. and the january 6th committee zeros in on a gop congressman over a tour he gave of the capital complex the day before the insurrection. plus, a scorcher of a weekend. over 35 million people bracing for record hot temperatures. we're going to break down your forecast and tell you what you can expect. we begin with a crucial overseas trip for president biden. the president in seoul, south korea, on a visit aimed at shoring up u.s. alliances and strengthening economic ties. >> mr. biden arrived at the state dinner in seoul just
4:02 am
moments ago, giving a toast. this is his first trip to asia as president. he met with south korea's newly elected president yoon suk-yeol earlier today telling him that the ties between the u.s. and south korea have never been stronger or more vital. >> the president's trip comes as he faces a myriad of problems back home from the shortage of baby formula to spiking inflation and now rising covid cases. high on the president's overseas agenda, the north korean nuclear threat. >> it's critically important that we have a there are close trilateral relationship, including economically as well as militarily. today president yoon and i committed to strengthening our close engagement and work together to take on challenges of regional security, including addressing the threat posed by the democratic peoples republic of korea, by further strengthening our deterrence
4:03 am
posture, and working toward a complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula. >> in a joint statement, mr. biden and south korean president yoon said they agreed to expand joint military kpexercises as a deterrence against kim jong un and north korea, a reversal from the trump administration which scaled back exercises on the korean peninsula. let's go now live to seoul, south korea, and cnn chief white house correspondent kaitlan collins there. i know it's after 8:00 p.m. there in seoul. kaitlan, tell us more about the significance of this announcement that the u.s. and south korea are planning to expand these joint military exercises? >> reporter: it tells you two things, one which president biden noted upon his arrival at the state dinner, really, the first stop, making south korea the first stop shows he does want to revitalize the ties between south korea and the united states, something, a relationship, really, that has
4:04 am
deteriorated under former president trump. something he wants to work on while he's here, and showcasing support against north korea, and a firm commitment with south korea as they say that there is a rising concern given the fact that u.s. intelligence has assessed there could be a missile test while president biden is on the ground in the region. they talked about this commitment of not only continuing those joint military exercises but potentially expanding them, and this is what south korea president said that meant to him earlier today. >> translator: we're seeing north korea advance its nuclear missile capabilities, and president biden and i shared grave concern, and more than anything else, we believe that this is something that merits our utmost attention. key to our combined capability is the combined military exercises and we are going to step up our exercises and we will be coordinating between ourselves regarding the
4:05 am
deployment of u.s. strategic military assets. >> reporter: and that is a south korean president we should note has justice been elected. he's only been in office for a matter of days. one of his first major events is hosting the president of the united states, a visit that will continue tomorrow before president biden heads to tokyo where he will meet with japanese leaders. that's another major aspect of the visit. while president biden was on the ground here in seoul today, he did sign that $40 billion aid package, a massive aid package that the united states is sending to ukraine, mainly to send them more weapons, as they are continuing to defend themselves against this russian invasion. that was a bill that actually had to be flown here to seoul for the president's signature. he did so off camera today, but the white house has confirmed he signed that bill. boris and amara. >> an important moment happening as the president visits asia. kaitlan collins from seoul, thank you so much. let's pivot to europe now because as president biden is shifting his focus, russia's war
4:06 am
against ukraine rages on. russia is claiming it is now in complete control of that azovstal steel plant. >> reporter: suzanne malveaux joining us from lviv. bring us up to speed on the latest developments at that stole p feel plant, and elsewhere, if you will. >> reporter: the latest development, i want to bring this forward here, is that president zelenskyy in ukraine, just in a tv broadcast interview moments ago has said that he's vowing to end this war with diplomacy, certainly not indicating a surrender of any sort, but his intention and his will to end this carnage that's happening here to his people in ukraine. just to underscore that, one of the wives of the ukrainian military, a soldier having left that facility, the steel plant, saying that her husband leaves
4:07 am
one hell to go to another hell. a lot of concern over the whereabouts and what happens, the fate of those individuals, but russian officials giving us the statistics that cnn cannot independently confirm that more than 500 had evacuated that plant yesterday, that essentially the plant was empty. again, we cannot confirm that that, in fact, is the case. but there are more than 2,000 who have evacuated. some seriously wounded at a hospital under russian control. most of them in a russian controlled detention center nearby. again, the russian official say that they will treat them in accordance with international law in a humanitarian way but at the same time say that some of these individuals will be interrogated and potentially move on to be tried for potential crimes, and so a lot of concern over just the fate of those ukrainian soldiers now in russia's hands. but clearly a win for russia in
4:08 am
terms of achieving one of its goals, getting from russia, creating that land bridge across russian-backed territory on to crimea, and then on to the sea. and so the fighting, however, still continues. i want you to see this video, particularly this is out of the kharkiv region. this is a cultural center, a cultural center that was blown up. a target of the russians here. the president zelenskyy so angry, saying this is absolute evil, absolute stupidity, he's calling that. seven injured, that building demolished and still we look to the east where the fighting continues. >> absolute evil. suzanne malveaux, thank you very much for your reporting. joining us to dive deeper in president biden's challenges on the world stage is global analyst, aaron david miller, a
4:09 am
senior fellow at the carnegie endowment. good morning to you, thank you so much for being with us this morning. >> good morning. >> so, you know, as we know, president biden shifting his foreign policy focus to asia. of course he has been preoccupied as much of the world has with ukraine. first off, tell us big picture here, what's the big goal? what are the priorities? what does he want to achieve while he's in asia? >> i think there are three priorities, number one, to reinforce existing bilateral security commitments. we have treaty alliances with south korea and japan. they are critically important, and also among the world's larges largest economies. number two is to expand existing cooperation, the administration doesn't want to admit it. in an effort to actually counter, and blunt the rise of china. this can be achieved through the meeting of the quad, which will occur in tokyo with the president, and the president will unveil a new economic
4:10 am
initiative, the indo-pacific economic framework, which is not a traditional treaty, excuse me, economic trade agreement but it is an effort to rope others into dealing with digital infrastructure. and climate. so that's a second. and the third is to have goals that are realistic because this is a complicated region. you have a north korea that is on the verge, perhaps, of launching another ballistic missile, and you have countries that really don't want to choose, make clear choices between the united states and china. south korea is one because china is their largest trading partner. so i think the administration will because they're in friendly territory come away with some successes here. but i think the road ahead is going to continue to be quite challenging. >> let's talk about china, then, for a moment because obviously one of the goals as you're
4:11 am
mentioning is for biden to say, hey, look, we are committed to countering what we see as a growingly assertive china. what do you think the message is for china, especially as russia has invaded ukraine in what is an unprovoked war, and there are concerns. i've heard experts make parallels to that and the potential of china's aggression in taiwan. >> i think we have to get over the notion that you can use the word pivot. pivot implies you're turning from one priority to another. what ukraine identified, not only in the slio lidty of an alliance, the united states and allies will have to figure out a way to do a two-fer, confront and contain, and cooperate with
4:12 am
two countries who are determined to oppose u.s. influence in many parts of the world. i think the idea of containing china, a country i think that wants not to overturn the existing system, but to play a preeminent role in it, is going to be the priority. but at the same time, ukraine war is not going to end early, and it likely may not end well. it's going to continue for quite some time. the administration is going to have to figure out a way to do both. >> you can talk about doing a two-fer. are you concerned as the world has been focused on russia's invasion of ukraine, what we have been seeing is this ramp up of missile tests by north korea. you know, how big is that threat right now. >> the threat of a launch, intercontinental ballistic missile, i think the chances of that are small.
4:13 am
the reality is that north korea is a de facto, we haven't recognized it, and won't, nuclear weapons state. and the best you're going to be able to do over time, even if you commit yourself to denuclearization as a long time goal is to constrain and restrain that threat. there are no easy fixes here. it will be interesting to see the huge outbreak of covid in north korea, whether or not this might provide an opening for the united states and other countries. the south koreans have offered in an effort to get kim jong un into some sort of opening, but i think at the moment, he's not interested in diplomacy. he's interested in demonstrating that he's there, he can hurt the united states, and its ally, and we don't have a solution to that problem for now other than deterrence and perhaps at some point diplomacy. >> a lot on his plate for president biden on his first trip to asia as president.
4:14 am
aaron david miller, appreciate you this morning. thank you so much. >> thank you. now to a cnn exclusive. marine veteran trevor reed who was recently freed after nearly three years in a russian prison is speaking out about what he suffered. he talked to cnn's jake tapper about the extreme conditions he lived under, describing blood and waste on the walls of a cell he was in with known killers. >> reporter: what was the worst conditions that you had, that you experienced during that time? >> the psychiatric treatment facility, i was in there with seven other prirsoners in the cell. they all had severe, serious, psychological health issues. most of them -- so over 50% of them in that cell were in there for murder, or like multiple murders, sexual assault and murder, just really disturbed individuals, and inside of that
4:15 am
cell, you know, that was not a good place. there was blood all over the walls there where prisoners had killed themselves or killed other prisoners or attempted to do that. the toilet's just a hole in the floor, and there's, you know, crap everywhere all over the floor, on the walls. there's people in there also that walk around that look like zombies. >> reporter: were you afraid for your life? >> i mean, i did not sleep there for a couple of days, so i was too worried about, you know, who was in the cell with me to actually sleep. >> you thought they might kill you? >> yeah, i thought that was a possibility. >> russian officials have defended the conditions that trevor was kept in as satisfactory or in line with russian law. it's a conversation you will not want to miss, and you won't find it anywhere else. a special report, finally home, the trevor reed interview airs
4:16 am

- common percy! - yeah let's go! on a trip. book with priceline. you save more, so you can “woooo” more. - wooo. - wooo. wooooo!!!!! woohooooo!!!! w-o-o-o-o-o... yeah, feel the savings. priceline. every trip is a big deal. so the fda admits it will be weeks before baby formula gets back to normal supply levels. but it adds families may see the situation improving in the coming days with the string of developments. in an unusual move, the defense department is directing a military plane to leave sometime this weekend to transport the first pallets of baby formula the u.s. procured from overseas.
4:21 am
>> european formula maker denone is stepping up production for form las. and the uk based reckitt specified it's increasing production by 35%, and the fda says it's in touch with clinics preparing to hospitalize kids due to a lack of specialty formula. president biden just signed a new bill into law in response to the shortage. it allows the waiver of program requirements in the special nutrition program for women, infants and children known as wic. our next guests are struggling to feed their baby because of the formula shortage. it's become nearly impossible to find the special kind of formula their baby needs because she was born three months early. joining us now are mac and emily janer. thank you both for sharing part of your weekend with us. first, congratulations on mckenzie, she looks adorable.
4:22 am
she's overcome so much already, right, she spent more than 100 days in the nicu. i'm wondering what this process of finding formula for her has been like? >> it's been a frustrating, heartbreaking, unnecessary challenge for a kid who's already overcome so much. >> and practically what does that look like? i've seen you, mac, going to half a dozen stores looking for formula and coming up empty. >> yeah. there are no cans of neosure on store shelves in the state of washington. i have put a thousand miles on my car in the last week, trying to find cans of neosure for my baby and the parents of other premature children in our community, and there's none to be found. this is a specialty formula that
4:23 am
you cannot switch babies from, you know, medically fragile children from one specialty formula to another on a whim without having significant consequences and ramifications that, you know, we're very worried about right now, and a lot of parents who are completely out are facing right now. >> emily, help us understand what that's like. this specific kind of formula is something her doctors have prescribed, what do you fear might happen if she doesn't get it. >> i feel she'll feel off her growth chart more than she already is hanging on to it. i fear that she'll have upset stomach, that it won't sit well with her, she won't get the nutrition she needs. if you switch up those essential vitamins, the essential things in the formula to something that isn't necessarily going to help her grow and help her stay healthy, i don't think what that would do to my child, and that
4:24 am
is terrifying. >> and so what's your message to lawmakers as they try to tackle this problem from what i've read in reports, it seems like something that's been building up for some time. >> that's what we're hearing, too, and if that's the case, i would love for someone to figure out why we weren't warned. as the parents of premature kids who are dependent on this product, we were not warned in any way proactively by the manufacturer, you know, by anyone who was in a position to know, and that a critical shortage was coming. this absolutely blind sided us, so when did they know, and why weren't we warned of this shortage because it has put a lot of families in a really devastating position. >> yeah, no question. i can hear the emotion in your voice. i can't imagine what you're going through. it doesn't sound, even though we just outlined things that are
4:25 am
being done to help the situation, it doesn't sound like there's an easy solution within the next few weeks, if not months, what's your plan, what happens if you can't get the formula. >> you know, i don't know at the moment. we're going to have to consider all of our options and some of those options are really bleak. our daughter is on the first percentile of the growth chart. she c she cannot afford to fall any lower. we need to find baby formula that she can take that has the requisite amount of calories, and that is in very short supply right now. even if it comes back, there are costs to transition babies from one formula to the other, and we are terrified about what that could do to a kid who is just barely hanging on from being out of the hospital right now. >> i'm so scared for you, and
4:26 am
our heart goes out to you. i'd like to keep in contact to make sure that you get the help that you need and we keep our viewers informed of how they might be able to even help you. is there any message you would like to share with people watching about what they might be able to do? >> you know, if you have any cans of neosure in your closet, if you're a former parent of your preemie, your kid has transitioned to solids, donate to a food bank. we are fortunate to get our story out there, and people have offered to send us cans, and help is on the way for us. but that is not the case for most parents dealing with this right now. if you can find some, donate it. make sure whatever supply exists right now gets to the people who need it most before they expire. it's just really tragic, and i can't believe we're having to do this right now in 2022. >> emily and mac janer, thank
4:27 am
you so much for sharing your story with us. we're pulling for you and mckenzie, thank you so much. >> of course! it's terrifying and angering to hear their story. this is one of, you know, millions of families who are going through this, and this should not be happening, as he said in 2022. release the tapes, that's the growing call from gop leaders after the january 6th committee says it wants to know more about one republican lawmaker's tour of the capital the day before the deadly insurrection. what we're learning coming up.

the january 6th committee now says it has evidence that republican congressman barry lauder milk of georgia led a tour of the u.s. capitol the day before pro trump rioters stormed the building. >> the committee sent a letter
4:32 am
requesting his voluntary cooperation with their ongoing probe. cnn capitol hill reporter an k nie grayer has been following this report. good to see you. lo loudermilk has called the group of people, peaceful people. we met at church. what do you make of this information. >> reporter: this is the first time the january 6th committee has reached out to a lawmaker to speak about tours given at the capitol days before the riot. that congressman is barry loudermilk, and the committee wants to speak to him about a tour he gave at january 5th in the capitol complex. the reason the committee wants to speak with loudermilk is shortly after the attack last year, democratic congresswoman mikie sherrill claimed that s witnessed republican members of congress give what she called reconnaissance tours to rioters to show them around the capitol in the days leading up to the
4:33 am
attack. now, loudermilk denies that he gave such a tour claiming that on january 5th, he was meeting with families from his district, including children and that he was in the house office buildings and not in the capitol itself at all. but this is somebody that the committee wants to speak to, and it's important to know that they want this conversation to happen before their big public hearings coming up next month on june 9th. >> and annie, there are court documents that appear to show former president trump's direct role potentially in that election plot, is that correct? >> well, boris, yes, new court documents came out that showed that donald trump was communicating directly with former -- with his former right wing lawyer, john eastman. those court documents show that trump even wrote handwritten notes to eastman and the two were talking about plans to overturn the election.
4:34 am
these court documents came in a new court filing, part of a case between the january 6th committee and john eastman. the committee really wants documents that eastman has as part of its investigation because eastman was very central to this plan of overturning the election. you might remember eastman as the lawyer who a federal judge called -- said was more likely than not to have planned a crime after the election with trump. now, no charge has been made, but this is an ongoing court case that the committee really wants documents from. >> fascinating stuff. thank you for that. next, oil tanks sitting nearly empty in new york harbor fueling warnings that diesel prices are about to skyrocket. and stanley tucci steps out of italy, and explores how italian migrants have explored
