2:23 am
with lawmakers on his $2.25 trillion infrastructure proposal. if you take a look at the list of people who have been invited to the meeting, it includes lawmakers from both the house and senate, and they also have a common thread there. there are many people in that list who were former governors and mayors, which is part of the white house's push to try to make this appeal on infrastructure to people who have had experience dealing with infrastructure issues and federal spending in their states and cities. you will see mitt romney and john hogan, former republican governors, as well as john hickenlooper who were democratic governors. one thing that is playing out right now is this debate over what exactly infrastructure is. republicans want to see it more tailored to roads, bridges, and rails. democrats are really trying to enhance infrastructure to include broadband and clean energy initiatives.
2:24 am
one thing that you have seen from a top white house ally, democrat chris koombs of delaware he's making the push to get a more narrow deal. maybe something in the $800 million range. he's trying to find ways to bring republicans on board. right now it's unclear if the white house would be willing to go that low in order to make this a bipartisan measure. >> all right. arlett, thank you so much. minneapolis and many other u.s. cities are beefing up security ahead of the derek chauvin verdict. both sides have one last chance to make their case before this case goes to the jury. ...the burning. the stinging. my skin was no longer mine. my psoriatic arthritis, made my jojoints stiff, swollen... painful. emerge tremfyant™ with tremfya®,, adults with moderate to severe plaque p psoriasis...

the reality of climate is changing the reality for corporate america. companies have making million dollar donations to address climate change. apple is launching $200 million investment fund called the restore fund to remove carbon emissions from the atmosphere and at the same time generate financial returns for the company. i spoke with lisa jackson, apple's vice president for environment, policy, and social initiatives about the importance of making climate change a corporate priority. >> the idea of having a return is important for the planet because if you really want business to engage, if you want business to turn around and do this at scale, to invest in working for us at scale, it has to be because there's a return on that investment. otherwise it's just philanthropy. so much of what we're doing at apple is about showing about the business of doing right by the planet is good business.
2:30 am
>> the restore fund is part of apple's to be carbon neutral by 2030. >> what we're saying with the restore fund is here is a way for us to invest in doing forestry the right way. it supports the planet, yes, it supports returns, and it supports the communities for people who work in the foresty industry. >> jackson applauded the green energy efforts in president biden's infrastructure plan but wouldn't comment on whether apple supports higher corporate taxe taxes to pay for it. president biden will bring 40 leaders together for a two-day climate summit this week.

arguments begin this this morning in the trial of derek chauvin. a verdict could come as soon as this week. cnn's josh campbell is live for us in minneapolis this morning. what is the feeling this morning, josh? >> reporter: it is quiet tense here. this isn't a minneapolis most people recognize. it's turning into a fortress day by day with plywood on businesses downtown. police precincts are vounlded by fencing. there are members of the national guard posted in and around the city. again, out of an abundance of caution. we saw already an incident that would raise the tensions over the weekend. that is two of these guards members were fired upon, authorities say, early sunday morning. two injured. nonlife threatening. it shows what authorities are a grappling with. it comes down what the verdict will be in the trial of the
2:32 am
former officer. everyone here, indeed, around the world watching for that. the governor here in minnesota spoke out describing some of the tensions. he said the verdict is going to be a pivotal point in our state's history and how we respond to that is going to shape us. he said it is the assessment of public safety folks after we did the afteraction last summer to try to understand what was going to take. the advantage here, we had no preparation time last summer. this time we do. the point he was trying to make is that, of course, we saw the protests last summer after george floyd's death. something that turned violent. authorities were slammed for not preparing, not having enough resources here. this time authorities leaving nothing to chance. again, this city turned into a fortress right now. unrecognizable with members of the national guard and police here bracing for what is to come. >> josh campbell in minneapolis for us, thank you. laura, there was so much emotional testimony over the course of the several weeks. what should we be looking for here? >> i think you want to look for
2:33 am
the defense to do what it has been doing. deflect, distract, do anything to insert doubt here. because they know they are faced with this video of officer chauvin bearing down on floyd's neck for 9 minutes. the jury has seen it so many times now. the prosecution has to prove its case on each of those three charges. a phrase you'll hear a lot today is substantial causal factor. look out for that term. what it basically means, they have to show this former officer was the substantial cause in floyd's death. you might look and say it's obvious but you've heard the defense team inject all this doubt about his drug use, his heart condition, so they have to figure out how to package this for the jury so it doesn't get distracted by all those other issues. >> substantial causal factor. >> you'll hear it a lot. >> got it. three questions for three minutes. john, good morning. we're confronting america's culture of violence here.
2:34 am
government failing in a basic core objective to keep the citizens safe. 50 mass shootings 234 a month. 150 this year. the polarize the culture and ideological divides making it impossible to address any of this adequately. you can wrap the story lines together and it comes down to the fact that, you know, we have this culture of violence in this country. >> we do and you can't look at those numbers at that scroll, which is still continuing, an not say there's a problem. of course, we get numb to it. this doesn't happen in any other country. that said, don't give up the ability -- the belief that it is impossible to improve this. however incrementally. gun background checks. supporting out percent of the people it's infour rating that congress has been able to do anything. specifically the senate. pat toomey and chris murphy said they thought it could go forward. there are things the federal government can do. the nra, once so powerful, is
2:35 am
hobbled by its own malfeasance. there's a chance we can make progress against these issues. it's not going to come from absolutists and maximumists on either side. >> one familiar face addressing this issue of polarization in the country is former president george w. bush. he has a new book out. he's giving interviews and talking about how immigrants are treated in this country. listen to this. >> the problem with the immigration debate is that what can create lot of fear. they're coming after you but it's a nation that is willing to accept a refugee or the harmed or the frightened. to me it's a great nation. and we are a great nation. i don't want to be prescriptive and tell congress what to do. i want to say please put aside
2:36 am
the harsh rhetoric about immigration. put aside trying to score political points on either side. i hope i can help set a tone that is more respectful about the immigrants which may lead to reform of the system. >> john, the former president wants a more respectful tone but his party isn't heading that way. progressives are mad at the president for how he's handling the situation at the border. so how do you move on anything when this is the dynamic at play? >> don't let the extremes dominate the debate. listening to george w. bush and remembering how much he was demonized by folks on the left at the time, i think has a force of revelation. that's what a compassionate conservative sounds like. an endangered species now. but he was also a border state
2:37 am
governor. there is room for progress on this. it may be a comprehensive immigration reform that folks don't like. it may be a skinny bill like daca, but a bipartisan bill passed the senate with eight republican votes within a decade. it can happen again. it will require the party realizing they won't get to determine the policy moving forward. otherwise this will continue to be a contradiction to the american character and something that irritates our divisions even further when it should be something that units us. it's a matter of shared heritage. >> yeah. it seems almost like the republican has a new motto hesitancy. the gop has been hesitant to evolve on guns. hesitant to evolve on the economy and the wealth gap. we talked about the border. explain this, the america first caucus. pushing for an an low saxson
2:38 am
political tradition. aparentally a hesitancy about, oh, say today current status of the world. what is going on here? >>, i mean, basically a resistance to actual american history and fetishizing the past. i think that's revealing. it goes way beyond hesitancy. this is about an anti-science impulse. an impulse to demonize the actual and fundamental diversity of america, which has been perpetual, by the way. it's reviealing when the curtai gets pulled back. your definition of freedom about being hostile to public health, if you can't think about the community adequately and setting around position papers talking about a caucus you might be the problem. >> otherwise known as white supremacy. that's one way to put it, too. >> yeah. >> john, thank you.
