tv   CNN Newsroom With Pamela Brown  CNN  April 25, 2021 3:00pm-4:00pm PDT

3:00 pm
stop! >> calls for accountability after an unarmed black man was shot while on the phone with 911. >> we have got to put an end to the moments with the public questions whether there will be accountability. i think there's no question the american people in a bipartisan way realize and want to get reform of the system. >> millions of americans that got the first vaccine shot are
3:01 pm
missing the critical second dose. >> we don't want that to go up. >> i am pamela brown in washington. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. you are live in the cnn "newsroom" on this sunday. tonight major news for americans hoping to head abroad. "the new york times" is reporting the eu will let vaccinated u.s. tourists visit europe this summer. millions of americans, 8%, are skipping out on the second dose of the covid-19 vaccine. this warrants this reminder. both pfizer and moderna vaccines consider two doses to be fully effective. one dose gives some level of protection but medical experts say we don't know how long that protection will last.
3:02 pm
joining me now, the white house senior adviser for covid response. wel welcome back to the show. >> i want to get your reaction. the eu is set to let vaccinated tourists visit after shutting down nonessential travel for more than a year. what is your reaction? >> the key to getting back to life that we used to know is vaccination. so far we have more than half of the adults of americans have done vaccine shots, and that's great and we have near half of the americans that have not done that yet. we will see a world where people that have been vaccinated will enjoy a lot of freedoms, and they will feel like they can take on activities and risks and
3:03 pm
the cases will continue to be there for the people that have not been vaccinated yet. whreuts whether it's traveling to europe, vaccination is the key. >> is there anything more to be being able to travel to europe and other countries as well while we are on the subject? >> what the world is basically saying, they are looking at the u.s. and the success and the vaccination of the program, and while they know we are not done yet, they are saying those americans are safe to come to our country without risk of spreading covid-19. think about that. that's incredible. just a few months ago we were the first nation in the world most cutoff from travel. that shows what an incredible few months we have had vaccinating americans, so i think we'll find more and more things like that, both internationally and also, pam, in the u.s. i think you are
3:04 pm
going to see increasing steps over the next few weeks on what vaccinated americans can do in addition to just travel, because not all of us travel, that are going to be very important. >> i want to talk about that, and also put a button on this. has the administration heard from any leaders from other countries that those restrictions will be loosened, and we are learning about the eu. anything else? >> nothing that i am aware of, pam. >> nothing you are aware. okay. let's get to what you were just thinking of. vaccinated people are trying to figure out, if we go out on a walk, i will just go ahead and travel and i am vaccinated and wearing a mask, and there are cdc guidelines and we keep hearing there are going to be updates to that, but can you give us a specific timeline of when we will know more about travel? you told sanjay gupta the
3:05 pm
guidance will change when 20 to 30% are vaccinated of a population, and today we are almost up to 30%. what can you tell us about that? >> our jobs in the white house is to let the cdc make the decisions based on the data, the science and their judgments, and sometimes that's not always perfect data, and the cdc has begun the process of being able to define -- how to list those restrictions for americans, and there's no question they plan to do that. if you pay attention this week, with you will continue to see more and more of those come into play and begin to talk about them. it's not going to be as fast as people were vaccinated want, but 48% of americans have not been vaccinated yet. folks that have not been vaccinated yet still feel very much at risk. we have to bring the rest of the country along with us. the most important thing we can
3:06 pm
do, people that have not been vaccinated, make sure they get vaccinated, and help them get there and talk to them about why you did it, and that will get them there quicker and quicker. >> this week we will see more guide ounce on the cdc and on travel and what they can do outside, correct? >> correct. >> and do you not want to get ahead of that? >> the cdc and the fda, the public knows we are not influencing what they say. they say basically what the medical science tells them their best judgment is and as more americans get vaccinated, it's only natural they will continue to give us good news on that front. >> we will have to wait to see what the cdc says then. you mentioned people not getting vaccinated and what it means for them. we have the new cdc numbers saying millions of skipping
3:07 pm
their second dose now. how concerned are you about this? >> well, look, if you have gotten your first dose, it's really important that you get your second dose. i think some people are getting frightened by some of the talk, and quite frankly some of the misinformation on sites like facebook about side effects and things of that nature, and if you talk to most people who have gotten their second shot, the side effects are quite mild and temporary, and in the vast, vast, vast majority of cases. it's very important -- you know, 92% is not bad, but i want that other 8% to realize one thing, the longevity of the vaccine is much stronger when you have had two doses. so you may find yourself with two doses being able to have immunity for quite a long time, but with one dose we know that's not the case, and so it's very important, even though you get some response and you get a
3:08 pm
second dose and that will give you a long-lasting response. >> i see what you are saying. bottom line, the numbers have gone up to 3% to 8% not getting that shot. we also have the mammoth poll showing a 43% of republicans said they will likely never get the vaccine, and this poll shows that that number is still very high. what else can be done to address this? >> well, one of the things we hear loud and clear from people on the fence about getting a vaccine is really two things. one is that they want to be informed, they don't want to be persuaded and don't want to be talked it into, and they want somebody to educate them and give them the information, and we encourage people to go and talk to their doctors and ask
3:09 pm
them, and once people do their homework, what do they learn? 140 people have been vaccinated, and 90 plus of them are immune from these conditions. it's an incredibly effective vaccine, and we find more people each month saying, you know, i think i will get vaccinated. when people know people who have been vaccinated, they are more likely to get vaccinated by themselves. it's important that people know about it and come afterwards, and it's maybe not as fast as the first 50%, it will be slower but i think we will continue to get there. >> okay. i want to ask you about world events. the white house announced the white house is working to send help to india, and they are all part of the relief plan but what
3:10 pm
about vaccines beyond funding the vaccinations. >> so i want to make sure we are clear about this. the u.s. is back on the global stage, we're back leading. we are in a position increasingly where we are more and more confident where americans will have the vaccines they need, and once that has been the case we have always said we will make sure we turn our attention to helping make sure we help the world, and we are not going to only fund vaccines and we have unilaterally given the vaccine to countries, and as for places like india that are hot spots, our national security team, usaid, we are in constant
3:11 pm
communication figuring out their needs, and the announcement today was a major step forward and some of the things we are doing to help in the short term and long term. i will not announce them here -- >> i need to press alittle bit and i need to be specific. we know in may the expectation is that there will be more doses than people likely wanting to get the vaccine. we already know what supply we have and what the trajectory is like for those needing that supply. there's a huge emergency all over india, and so i want to circle back on vaccines. is there a plan right now to send the astrazeneca vaccines, some of them to india? >> when we made decisions about the exporting them, we will announce them, and we are in
3:12 pm
constant communication and evaluating all the options and we will give you a satisfactory -- >> it sounds like it's under discussion at least is what i am hearing from you? >> everything on the table, absolutely. >> i tried to get it from you, but i appreciate you coming on the show to give us what information you could give us on the very important topic. thank you for coming on and you are always welcome back. >> thank you, pam. coming up in a moment, our dana bash has a one-on-one interview with vice president harris. find out if she thinks gun control should be the next priority. and then after more than 3 million people sign up -- i am looking forward to this discussion. and later tonight i will introduce you to president biden's youngest climate crisis

deliver supplies to them. this is how we are standing up for our people and protecting each other. ♪ this hour there's growing outrage and calls for police accountability after an unarmed black man in virginia was shot and wounded. body cam foot skpeupblg 911 audio shows a sheriff deputy shoot brown last week. that same deputy had given brown a ride home an hour earlier and then returned to respond to a domestic incident. what do we know about the investigation so far and what are police saying about that? >> pam, they say their loved one, isaiah brown was shot
3:18 pm
multiple times as a result of a failure of communication. as a result they want this investigated here, and we will play a portion of a 911 call that captured what happened here. the 32-year-old, what he had in his hand was a phone and not a gun, so in the body camera video we will show you in a few moments, you can see what took place. according to the county sheriff's office, the deputy was responding to brown's call of a domestic disturbance, and you can hear brown having an argument in the conversation, and brown is heard asking his brother for a gun and his brother refuses, and seconds later, and this is important, he tells the dispatcher he does not have a gun and is not armed as he walks out on the street, and the dispatcher instructs brown
3:19 pm
to hold his hands up. >> are you holding your hands up? put your hands up. >> show me your hands, now! drop the gun! drop the gun, now! >> he just shot him. >> show me your hands! drop the gun! drop the gun! >> it's clear things escalated extremely quick, and brown was in fact, unarmed, and now we want you to see body cam video. basically it reinforces what you just heard. the video still may be difficult to watch for some. >> drop the gun!
3:20 pm
>> he's got a gun to his head. >> drop the gun now! stop! stop! >> again, because of the angle it's difficult to make out exactly what happened there, but you can hear the police officer say, quote, he has a gun to his head, and they believed the deputy likely mistyook the cordless phone for the gun, and they are describing it as nonlife-threatening injuries. their attorneys are calling on the sheriff's department to release the body cam video. >> thank you for that. in the meantime the family of a black man shot and killed by deputies last week in carolina may have a chance to watch body cam footage tomorrow. that's what their attorney tells cnn. few details have been released
3:21 pm
in the shooting of 42-year-old andrew brown jr. in elizabeth city. deputies were trying to serve him. i will bring in the former baltimore deputy police commissioner and a cnn law enforcement analyst. in the north carolina case, anthony, protesters and now the sheriff himself are calling for the body cam video to be released. why do you think the sheriff might want that video out there? >> we need transparency at this point. we saw what happened in the daunte wright shooting. immediately, it happened on the 11th and by the 12th the video was out. we have entered a new era with these body cams, and the public is right to want to see the
3:22 pm
video evidence as fast and as soon as possible. >> what answers could that provide? >> it could provide a lot of answers. it could range from what was the victim doing, because in my view, both browns are victims. what were they doing, and then what were the officers do sing? you are looking at this from a training perspective, a legal perspective and accountability perspective. all of that is very important when you are going to critique, when you are going to figure out if your officers -- you know, your people screwed up, who is getting charged and who needs to be fired, and it also comes into play when it goes to the legal department because i expect both jurisdictions to end up in court and having huge payouts to the
3:23 pm
victims. >> we will see how that goes. i want to talk about another case where there's body cam footage, of course, in virginia as was just laid out there, the deputy is repeatedly heard telling brown to drop the gun, and what would this mean for the officer, if, in fact, he did think it was a gun but it was a phone? >> mistakes can happen, but when you are in control of a situation and you have a gun and are shooting somebody, you have to get it right. over and over again, we're seeing cops pwrbreak down at th
3:24 pm
most intense moment, their training is breaking down and they are making the wrong decisions. if you are a distance behind me, i can get behind the engine of my vehicle, i can take cover, not concealment and we can try and sort this out. instead we are engaging too fast. now since when should show me your hands, and you have no threat in your hand, become a death sentence in the united states? we are failing at training these officers. let me say this, you don't just stop at the officer that does this. what were their bosses doing stdoing? what was the chiefs doing? over and over again we are seeing this failure. >> anthony barkdale, thank you so much. when we come back on this sunday, we can kamala harris if

3:29 pm
as vice president kamala harris parks her first 100 days in office, cnn chief political correspondent, dana bash, sat down to discuss with her how her role has taken shape so far, and dana joins me now. great to see you, dana. you covered a lot of ground in this exclusive interview, including the president's recent
3:30 pm
move to end the war in afghanistan. >> that's right. you know, this was one of the things that i was most interested in going into the interview, pamela, and that is whether or not president biden made good on his promise and maybe the better word for it is "tkpwel," to pick a running mate, a vice president that he could rely on and get private advice and be the last person in the room before a big decision, and i asked her about that in the context of his decision to pull u.s. troops out of afghanistan. >> president biden always said he wanted you to be the last person in the room as he was with obama, and he made a big decision on afghanistan. were you the last person in the room? >> yes. >> you feel comfortable? >> i do.
3:31 pm
i will add to that, this is a president that has an extraordinary amount of courage. he is someone who i have seen over and over again make decisions based on what he truly believes, and based on his years of doing this work and studying the issues, and what he truly believes is the right thing to do. he is acutely aware that it may not be politically popular or advantageous for him personally. it's really something to see, and i wish that the american public could see sometimes what i see. because ultimately, and the decision always rests with him, and i have seen him over and over again make decisions based exactly on what he believes is right, regardless of what may be the political people's tone is
3:32 pm
in his best selfless interests. >> that was -- >> pamela, i found that interesting for a lot of reasons. the biggest is the fact that we know that the president made that decision against the advice of his military advisers, they wanted him to stay in afghanistan and make the withdrawal conditions based, and he said no, and that's in large part because that's how he felt as vice president and even as a u.s. senator, but it also was interesting because she really gave us a window into their working relationship and the decision-making process. >> yes, and she was the last person in the room in that big decision making, and you also
3:33 pm
asked her about gun control and how big of a priority this is for the administration. what did she tell you? >> look, they have a lot on their plate. at the beginning it was and still is covid relief, economic relief because of the pandemic, and now what the administration is focusing on legislatively as the next priority is infrastructure. as we sat down there had been a spade of mass shootings and those continue, so i asked about gun control as it fits into the administration's priorities. >> there have been at least 50 mass shootings in america in a little over a month. your administration has made clear that infrastructure is the big nest legislative priority. why not guns? dr. anthony fauci told me over the weekend that gun violence is a public health emergency?
3:34 pm
>> i would disagree. we have as an administration taken action. the president ordered an executive action on ghost guns, and joe biden has a long-standing history about talking about gun safety laws, and i guess that emphasizes the point when he and i were in the senate, we were pushing for legislation. congress has to act, because we have to codify -- that's a fancy word for make permanent, make the law that we agree, we should have background checks. that's just reasonable gun safety laws. we should have an adult weapons ban, and assault weapons have been designed to kill a lot of people quickly. they are weapons of war.
3:35 pm
congress has to act, dana. i was recently in connecticut. senators murphy and blumenthal and the governor there, so many people, the families of sandy hook. i honestly thought -- i honestly thought, when those babies, 26 7-year-old children were slotted, and i thought that would be the thing and it didn't happen p happen. >> wow, what an interview. thank you for sharing it with us. >> thanks, pamela. and up next, president biden gives an address to a joint session of congress. join us for cnn's special live coverage starting wednesday night at 8:00 p.m. up next, why some

with allstate, drivers who switched saved over $700. saving is easy when you're in good hands. allstate click or call to switch today. the first weeks of the biden administration state republicans across the country united around an effort to place hurdles in front of the right to vote, a right inshrined in the constitution and that was all based on lies about voter fraud. now they are coalescing around another project, and gop legislators are pushing new laws around protesting, another right inshrined in the constitution, and it's all over the lie that the protesters left cities in ruins, and let's analyze this. this is according to the washington post.
3:41 pm
this is data that showed from last summer's blm protest, 96% of the protests involved zero property damage and zero police injuries. police used tear-gas or chemicals in just 2.5% of protests. and the majority of the violence that did take place was directed against blm protesters. again, this is according to the washington post and data it had analyzed. but under the look at anti-looting, and the harshest example is in florida. here's how governor ron desantis describes it. >> it's remarkable. if you look at the breath of this particular piece of legislation, it's the strongest anti-rioting pro law enforcement piece of legislation in the
3:42 pm
country and there's nothing even close. >> so here's what the florida law actually does. it elevates existing public disorder crimes from misdemeanors to felonies, and it makes destroying monuments a felony with a gree15-year sente, and would reduce the punishment for people who run over people, but increases the punishment for people who damage statues. similar measures are gaining steam in iowa and in oklahoma. and in minnesota, a gop proposal would bar anybody convicted of a crime at a protests from getting state benefits. and in indiana, imagine if that law had been around in georgia,
3:43 pm
somebody like the late congressman john lewis who was arrested several times for protesting before he ran for office would never have been able to start his political career. yesterday on cnn, jim claiborne reacts to these measures. >> this is about whether or not you are in favor of maintaining this democracy. a democracy that started off as a protest that was called the boston tea party. that was a protest, and that's what led to what this country is today. so when people protest, and you are going to criminalize the first amendment -- that's what you are doing, to petition for grievances, a first amendment guarantee, and you have a state that will criminalize pursuant to the first amendment? this is crazy stuff. >> so for a party that tout

happiness, it's something that many people, maybe you have been searching for as they dealt with isolation, social distancing and mental health during the pandemic. what started as a popular class at yale university in 2018 is now a wildly successful online course available to the public titled "the science of well-being." more than 3.3 million people have already enrolled in the seminar offered by the online platform, kand the professor sad she polled the number of people taking the class during the pandemic. let's start with the course description. it reads in this course you will
3:50 pm
engage in a series of challenges desaoeu designed to increase your own happiness. tell us more, if you would, about the course and what participants can take away from >> yeah. i think the first thing you learn is that many of the things we think make us happy don't really work. we need to get over our misconceptions about the kinds of things we need to do to be happy. if we know the right things to do, we could spend our time the right ways on the right things that are really going to improve our well-being. >> so really quickly to home in on that, what are the right things to do versus the misconceptions, very quickly? >> yeah. misconceptions are about money and changing our circumstances. but the research shows what really works is changing our mindset, becoming more present, more grateful, and changing our behaviors, becoming more socially connected, taking time to do nice things for others and even healthy hacketts like sleep
3:51 pm
and exercise. >> socially connected. that is something that has been difficult during this pandemic. the enrollment skyrocketed during the pandemic. what do you think it was about people being isolated that led them to seek this out in these huge numbers? >> yeah. we know that social connection is a necessary feature for high happiness. so, social isolation lockdown, it was exactly the kind of thing that was going to cause a huge hit on our mental health. so i think people flock to the course to try and get some strategies for how to improve things. people knew how to fix their physical health. you need to wear a mask and socially distance. but i think people struggled with simple things they need to do to protect their mental health. >> and they may not have had the distractions they had before. and just being forced to sit at home and reckon with yourself. i think that has been a challenge for people. but, really quickly, before we let you go, i want to pull up part of your email auto reply, which shows that you have truly been embodying what you teach in
3:52 pm
this course. you say over the past few weeks i have started receiving more than 100 emails a day and trying to keep up meant that i was hurting my own time. so i am currently trying my own personal well-being experiment. i am going to reduce the amount of time i usually spend on email it. >> sounds like you are really trying here to be a role model for your students. how important is it for people to form these healthy habits in their search for happiness? >> yeah. i have it's so important for me to practice what i preach. otherwise i think all my students would be, like, well, wait, what are you doing, you answer an email and not socially connecting, not taking time off? i think again what the research really show that's happiness is about our behaviors. if we choose the right behaviors, take time breaks, promote time affluence, we really can improve our well-being. >> and you've got to set
3:53 pm
boundaries. how do you measure happiness? how do you know if you're happy? >> yeah. we just do it through a simple self-report. these are really well-validated surveys that we can use to assess how people are feeling. and what we're finding in the coursera class is that before and after people go up about a whole point on these at this point-point happiness scales. >> wow, laurie santos, fascinating look at your class. thank you so much. good for you for setting boundaries and taking time off for yourself. but thank you for making time to come on the show. we appreciate it. >> thanks so much for having me. and boom or bust for hollywood's biggest night? can the oscars reverse the waning interest in award shows? our stephanie elam explains, up next.
