Biden as U.S. hits 400,000 deaths: “To heal, we must remember”

On the eve of being inaugurated as the 46th President of the United States, and in front of a memorial remembering the more than 400,000 lives lost to Covid-19, President-elect Joe Biden calls on Americans to “shine the lights in the darkness.” Meanwhile, sources tell CNN that Pres. Trump is spending the final hours of his presidency secluded in the White House with a muted demeanor. The President and First Lady are breaking with tradition by leaving the White House without greeting the Bidens. Trump will be the first president in modern history to not attend his successor’s inauguration. Former Vice President Al Gore joins AC360 to discuss Trump’s refusal to graciously accept the election results and predict what the next four years may look like. Plus, documentary filmmaker Ken Burns and presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin join Anderson Cooper to reflect on President Trump’s last four years and how the U.S. will respond to the challenges ahead with Biden in the White House.   Airdate: January 19, 2021   Guests: Al Gore Ken Burns Doris Kearns Goodwin To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit
