Transcript for The Rundown: Top headlines today: May 23, 2022
[MUSIC PLAYING] REPORTER 1: In Japan, President Biden's making news during his high stakes Asia trip after making these remarks about Taiwan. - Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that? - Yes. INTERVIEWER: You are? - That's the commitment we made. REPORTER 1: The President suggesting US Armed forces could be called in to defend Taiwan from Chinese aggression. - We agree with the one-China policy. We signed on to it. But the idea that it can be taken by force, just taken by force is just not appropriate. REPORTER 1: The White House tried to clarify Biden's comments, saying the President only reiterated the US's ongoing commitment to provide Taiwan with military means to defend itself. China's foreign ministry responding, urging the US to abide by its one-China principle and to not underestimate China's ability to defend itself. REPORTER 2: Authorities investigating a deadly fall from a cliff in Los Angeles County, California. One person killed, three others hurt after plunging 300 feet down the side of the cliff, a rescue helicopter airlifting at least two of the victims to safety. No update yet on their conditions. Authorities say they fell around 4:30 in the morning. Still no word on how they fell or what they were doing at the time. REPORTER 3: An urgent manhunt for 35-year-old yoga instructor Kaitlin Armstrong, who police say vanished days before being charged with the murder of professional cyclist Moriah Wilson. According to court documents, Armstrong's boyfriend, Colin Strickland, told police he was briefly in a relationship with the 25-year-old Wilson last year. Investigators say the pair, both pro cyclists, met up at 6:00 PM on May 11 after Wilson arrived in town for a race. Police say they went swimming together and had dinner before Strickland dropped Wilson off at a friend's home at approximately 8:30 PM. Moments later, police say this surveillance camera captured a dark SUV, matching Armstrong's Jeep Cherokee, approaching that apartment where later her friend finds her lying on the bathroom floor, bleeding and unconscious with a gunshot wound. Strickland, who police say bought 9 millimeter handguns for himself and Armstrong, issued a statement saying his friendship with the slain cyclist was strictly platonic. Armstrong's family telling ABC News while they don't know where the wanted 35-year-old is, they believe she is innocent. REPORTER 4: An Atlanta judge denying bond for rapper Gunna, whose real name is Sergio Kitchens-- - I'm not inclined to grant bond at this point in time, unfortunately. But what I will do is I will go ahead and grant your client his most expeditious trial date as I possibly can for the 9th of January of 2023. REPORTER 4: --and delayed proceedings for rapper Young Thug, whose real name is Jeffrey Williams. The two are part of the 28 people named in a sweeping gang indictment centered on accused members of the Young Slime Life Gang, also known as YSL, which officials say engaged in Atlantic criminal activity for a decade. The 88 page indictment gives a detailed account of various crimes the alleged members of YSL are accused of and documents social media posts and rap lyrics that reference YSL. REPORTER 5: Well, NASA scientists studying new data from the Hubble Space Telescope. And what they are finding has them scratching their heads. They found that our galaxy is expanding much faster than first thought, and other galaxies are moving away from ours faster than before thought. Scientists can't explain it yet and even say we may be seeing a brand new form of physics at work, all of it underscoring how little we know about the universe and how much more we still need to learn. REPORTER 6: Check this out. French fashion House Balenciaga taking over America's capital of capitalism for a fashion show, complete with models in full latex suits and masks, not exactly the three piece suits Wall Street is known for. And if these looks seem familiar, remember Kim K. provided a preview last fall when she wore Balenciaga to the Met Gala. Some bad news guys, Balenciaga won't be offering those latex suits for sale. I know. Devastating, right? I was planning on wearing one later this week right here on this very show, but they do have a new collaboration with Adidas.
