tv   CNN Newsroom With Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto  CNN  April 27, 2021 7:00am-8:00am PDT

7:00 am
very good tuesday morning you to, i'm jim shudciutto. >> and i'm poppy harlow. >> minutes from now, the family of anthony brown will release the results of an independent autopsy. it comes as the family is demanding the public release of the intire police body camera video after they say they were only shown an edited 20-second clip. >> brown's son on cnn described what he saw while watching that redacted footage. >> it was an execution, you know? this is video that no son should see, you know, dealing with his father at all. >> amazing family is having to watch this. cnn also obtained new video showing the aftermath of the
7:01 am
shooti shooting. this shot by a neighbor. brian todd is in elizabeth city, north carolina. brian, what does this other video shows if anything? >> well, jim and poppy, we are familiar with this video. we have spoken to that neighbor and several other neighbors:. some of whom who witnessed what happened a week ago tomorrow. it shows the aftermath, the immediate aftermath of the shooting of andrew brown. you can see andrew brown's car, a distance away. it's across a grassy area and then across the street, roanoke avenue. he drove across that grassy area. you see his car crashed against a tree. we spoke to the gentleman who owns that white house next to that tree. that gentleman told us that a bullet from the shooting ripped through his house and thankfully no one was there. witnesses told us that at about that time you are looking at this video, sheriff's deputies pulled andrew brown out of the vehicle and attempted life saving measures on him. obviously, the measures did not
7:02 am
work. so we have that video to talk about. but also, of course, the operative video that everyone is talking about this morning, that 20 second snip it of the body cam video which the family and family's attorneys were able to view yesterday. not to anyone's satisfaction. one of the family attorneys spoke about that. >> they said they showed us the pertinent parts. although they said it was a 30-second encounter, we don't have any information to validate. that we saw the one snipit and one body cam video. there were numerous officers on the scene. we're still trying to get transparency. we're still trying to obtain if it is ten more seconds. we would like to see all the body cam footage and dash cam that is available. >> so we have the family, the family's attorneys, the sheriff's office, the local county attorney. and members of the media petitioning the courts for the release of the rest of that body
7:03 am
cam video. we should know about that within the next couple days, we believe. they gave us graphic descriptions of what she saw in that video. andrew brown had had his hands on the wheel the entire time. he posed no threat to them. interestingly, she said when the 20 seconds begins, the shooting already begins. it could have started before that segment of that clip. poppy and jim? >> what alarming footage it must be to watch. brian todd, thank you very much. so why have authorities not released the full footage a week after police shot and killed andrew brown jr.? it is a question of the law. current north carolina state law different than that in many states across the u.s. where it is typically up to the police and prosecutors to release video. north carolina law puts the release up to a judge. a judge in effect has to order it. it does not allow authorities to disclose video without that court order. my next guest is trying to change that, pass a new law. joining me now, ben clark. he is a north carolina state senator who co-sponsored a bill
7:04 am
that requires dashboard camera video to be released 48 hours after an incident was recorded. mr. clark, thank you so much for taking the time this morning. >> jim, thank you for having me here. how you are doing today? >> not bad. not bad. before we get to what your law aims to do, as north carolina law stands today, a judge has to issue an order to release the full body cam video here. what is the standard? does the judge have to justify? how does a judge have to justify say, no, we're only releasing this 10 seconds for now? >> yeah. that is correct. the current bill that you're referring to or should i say laws passed in to 26, it's important to establish context n 2016 or prior to that, we had no law that gave any rights to citizens to obtain the video associated with what we have now. under the current law, of course, the individual had to seek a release of the video from the courts. now the court must determine whether or not there is any
7:05 am
confidential information that is in the video, whether or not it might disparage an individual. maybe there is an innocent person that is caught in the video and wouldn't want to cast aspersion on them. and there are a few other factors that must be considered. >> what is the public interest in not -- i mean, in not releasing this here? it is a question of just the gruesomeness of it? >> i'm going to say there is no public interest in not releasing the video. but that is for the judge to determine, not me. >> understood. so you're sponsoring senate bill 510. it requires them to release body or dashboard cam video after 48 hours have passed unless a court order says the release should be restricted. in other words, you err on the side of releasing the video. do you have bipartisan support for this? >> not yet. but hopefully we'll be able to
7:06 am
get bipartisan support. because, remember, we're trying to shift the paradigm here. under the current law an individual has to seek the rel release of the video. under my bill, if passed into law, the video will be released within 48 hours. or they have to retain authority from the courts in order to not release it. and by they, i mean the law enforcement entity involved. >> okay. but i'm just curious, if you have the votes to pass this. >> right now we do not have both passed. but hopefully that will change given all the incidents that have taken place over the recent years and even this week as we are -- or the last couple weeks or so. we get the sense that they will begin to shift. clearly, we need to do something because the status quo is not working. if ab individual is involved in an incident, the family should
7:07 am
have the right to go to the law enforcement authorities and have that video made available within 48 hours. it should not be placed upon the citizens. >> understood. we have seen other police departments move in that direction. i mean, for instance, after the shooting in columbus recently. it was out very quickly. they released the video of daunte right, the video was out. do you believe the transparency helps police departments rather than hurts them? >> i think it helps the police department. consider the case we're involved in now where the video has not been released. what do the citizens of our state say? i'm sure in their minds they're saying something must be going on. they must be trying to hide something. they were not trying to hide something, they would release the video. they may not be trying to hide something. clear
7:08 am
clearly, that is going to be the perception of the public. they wonder if ohio or these other states can release the video within a couple hours or day or so, why can't we do that in north carolina? >> yeah. understood. well, ben clark, hope we can stay in touch. we'll see where the bill goes in north carolina. >> and hopefully everything will go well. we'll pass that bill. the citizens of north carolina deserve it. >> thanks very much. >> no problem. you have a nice day, jim. thanks for having me. . >> you too. a federal ban on chokeholds is one of the main sticking points between democrats and republicans negotiating the george floyd policing 5:00. the other is qualified immunity, protection against civil lawsuits from individual police officers. where do things stand? l let's go to our chief correspondent. the sentiment from leaders in both parties that they do think that these are bridges that they can, you know, devise they can bridge if you will. and get something to the
7:09 am
president's desk. are the numbers nearly there? >> yeah. that's unusual. because most issues divide the party so starkly and there is a lot of pessimism there could be a deal. this one, there seems to be some optimism. the two o prapproaches they put forward they're different in key ways and similarities on both sides. there is a desire it must be done given everything that we're seeing across the country. negotiations are happening on a bipartisan basis. the party leaders have given karen bass and senator cory booker to be the democratic negotiators and the republicans have tim scott, the republican of south carolina the role of the chief northegotiator. they met last night and continue to make progress. scott told me last night that he hopes they can come to a deal by may. in an important development, he told me last night the yidea ofa federal ban on chokeholds is not off the table.
7:10 am
that is important. that was a difference between the two bills. the republican approach in state departments, local departments to outlaw chokeholds by withholding federal grant money. they had a federal ban. it sounds like scott is open to the idea of a federal ban. there are still major issues they're sorting through. you mentioned qualified immunity. that is making sure that people have victims of police violence can sue individual police officers in court. that is not currently allowed under law. the police departments can be sued. they're going back and forth on that language and whether or not to lower the threshold to prosecute individual officers so anyone who acted recklessly, a police officer can be charged with a crime. scott is not for that. so still big issues to resolve. at least optimism on both sides. >> optimism is rare. but welcome. thank you very much. jim? we'll see if it that bears
7:11 am
out. still to come, big question for all of us. the do you still need to wear a mask outdoors after you have been vaccinated? one manufacture questions president biden is expected to answer for us in a few hours from now. plus, new concerns that the pandemic in if india obviously it is ravaging that country and could have a ripple effect around the world. we'll speak with a congressman that wants the u.s. to do a lot more. then later, he was photographed in house speaker nancy pelosi's office, you remember that during the capital insurrection. now one of the suspects says he should be released from jail based on a note he left in her office? we'll explain ahead. behr ultra scuff defense... so that you can live that scuff-free life. honey, i'm home from my really important job! scuff defense. honey! scuff defense.

7:16 am
in a few hours, president biden expected to announce new cdc guidance for wearing masks outside as well as new recommendations for fully vaccinated americans in the hope the updated guidance may encourage more people to get vaccinated. >> cnn white house correspondent john harwood with us now. this is notable. biden followed a president in trump who repeatedly questioned ma masks they were not manly, refused to wear them at times. i'm asking you to wear it for the first 100 days. how important and why is the president expected to make this change now? >> well, i think it's significant because what the president's attempting to do is say if we follow the science, if we follow masking guidelines,
7:17 am
until we get the pandemic under control and vaccination rates up, then we can change down the road. and now as he's approaching the first 100 days, he's trying to build and sustain political momentum for his approach to say we have done it for the first -- in terms of the pandemic we're pivoting to the argument for his family's plan, the infrastructure plan. and the scientists within the administration and cabinet members including the hhs secretary have been teasing what that announcement is going to be about loosening up the mask guidelines. here he is this morning. >> you're vaccinated, you get to return to a more natural lifestyle. so get vaccinated. >> so you've got the president poised to deliver good news on
7:18 am
that front this afternoon. also some good news for the rest of the world. he's been very cautious about sharing american vaccine supply until he was certain that americans had enough supply for everyone. but now we're approaching the point in the united states where the demand problem is getting to be a bigger issue than the supply problem. that is getting people to want to take the vaccine and with pfizer, moderna and j&j, they feel like they have enough supply that they can share the ten million astrazeneca doses they have, not approved by the fda yet. they're going to wait for that. another 50 million in development. going to share that with the rest of the world to help the rest of the world for its own sake but also because that helps the united states to try to get this pandemic under control around the world, reduce the development of new variant that's could come back to bite the united states in the end. >> john harwood, thank you very much. let's start there on john's last point with epidemiologist jay
7:19 am
vargy. understandable the fda has to give the green light to these astrazeneca vaccines before they're sent overseas. but that could be weeks or even up to two months according to the white house. so what is the most helpful thing the united states could do today and in the near term for india? >> good morning, poppy. it's a critical point and one of the lessons of the pandemic is viruses don't respect borders. so when viruses circulate uncontrolled in india or brazil or in turkey or france, that becomes a breeding ground potentially for the emergence of new variants that can threaten our progress and prolong the pandemic. what can we do in the united states? one is recognize the fact this can't just be about us. and to that end, i think the most we can do is to support one
7:20 am
is providing the raw material necessary for countries like india that not only is in a terrible wave of covid-19 but also the worldwide leader in terms of the production of covid-19 vaccines. the other thing we can do is really provide both moral and leadership just to ensure the fact that we don't do our progress in a vacuum. >> yeah. okay. vaccinations in this country, i'm confused where we're headed. you see some negative indicators, right? we were talking about a study today seeing a drop in demand for vaccines, you know, even now fewer people getting the first shot that have gotten the second shot. on the flip side, we saw that a greater percentage of americans and we've seen in the past are willing to get vaccinated. i think the latest polling had it up to 77%. how close are we to herd immunity? are we headed in that direction or risk of not reaching it at
7:21 am
all? >> i think we're headed in that direction. but whether we'll hit it, that really depends on our will -- within the general public. and i think where we're going is probably a transition from some of the mass vaccination events, you know, in terms of within large sports centers, arenas, et cetera, and really getting to the ground where people trust the person they're receiving the advice from. in other words, we know that most americans regardless of political affiliation trust their doctor. and, again, we have lots of data including among my own physicians here at emory that more than 90% of physicians have elected to get vaccinated. so the more we can actually get the general public in front of people that they trust, that doesn't just address hesitancy and builds up confidence that these vaccines are truly safe and that they are highly effective, i think that is what is going to increase our chance of truly attaining herd immunity and getting usto return to a ne
7:22 am
normal. >> it's very, very rare, obviously, to have children contract covid-19 let alone die it from but it halved this weekend in minnesota with a first grader. everyone's heartbreaks to are that family. i wonder what every parent needs to know and what we can do as the guidelines get looser and looser. >> great question, poppy. again, as an infectious disease physician and a parent two of children, i think my reminder for parents is, again, let's make sure that as we get closer to the end game of this that we not let down our guards among people who are vulnerable. we noknow that most children dot get severely ill from covid-19. however, some will. children certainly can get infected. i think my advice is paint in broad stroke. outdoor playgrounds are much safer than indoor spaces. outdoor sports are relatively safe. but again, we may want to be careful about avoiding some of those indoor get togethers that occur after the game for snacks
7:23 am
or drinks for the adults. and then just in terms of thinking about the kind of progress we made, just as a reminder this is much to the joy of my own 13-year-old daughter, the cdc updated guidance on how summer camps can resume operations safely. i think looking to the science and making sure we protect those until every person over the age of 16 gets their vaccination now that they're eligible and they become available in the near future. i think that is how we can keep our kids safe. >> i liked your subtle reference there, dr. to snacks or drifrpgz f drinks for adults after youth sporting events. well played. always good to have you on. >> great. thanks, guys. president biden is talking tough and cracking down on russia with new sanctions. now we're learning he might soon meet face-to-face with president putin.

'cause we are. a january 6 rth capitol rioting suspect photographed sitting at a desk in the office of house speaker nancy pelosi is set to appear in court today. >> so apparently his lawyers plan to argue nor his release from jail partly based on a note that he left on the speaker's desk that they say federal
7:29 am
prosecutors misquoted. let's get our whitney wild to help us understand this. what's with the note? >> it's a lot of spelling errors. let's go to the exact note so you can get a look at what we're talking about here. of richard barnett sat at nancy pelosi's desk. it is the photo that enkaps lats the evasiveness of the day. it says hey nancy, be go, bigo, i'm not sure how to pronounce that then a grouping of letters that say biotd. however, the justice department says that word is actually bitch, his lawyers say that is not what it says. it says biotch. of course, they say that is not as -- it's not as cruel as the b word. it is in some terms is actually a form of endearment.
7:30 am
i don't know. i don't use that word that often. however, the justice department -- his defense attorneys are using this as an argument to keep him out of jail. here's what they say in a court filing. they say this is just another deliberate attempt to try to keep him behind bars. they stha is a deliberate attempt to mislead this court by casting mr. barnett in the worst possible light in order to ensure that pretrial release is not granted. >> so there you go. >> i can't believe you had to say that on tv. i say this as a daughter of a toddler that loves lawyers that, is interesting lawyering. we'll see how it goes. thank you whitney wild for that reporting. cnn learned that the white house is close to finalizing the details of what would be a european summit between president biden and russian president putin. >> a significant face-to-face or to say the meeting could happen as soon as early summer. it would come after president
7:31 am
biden rolled out new rounds of sanctions on moscow, also expelled nearly a dozen russian diplomats from the u.s. this in retall for a number of things including the solar winds hacks. we have more on the first one. natasha, a very warm welcome to you and cnn. >> thank you so much. >> so on this summit, is it written in stone now? is this likely to take place on the sidelines of the g-7 or independent of that? what we're hearing is the who us is hammering out details of what this summit is actually going to look like, where it's going to take place. and even the exact dates. what we do know is that this is going to take place after the president meets with g-7 and eu officials in keeping with the administration's policy of coordinating major foreign policy national security initiatives with key allies. they question the value of nato. they asked that the russians ab
7:32 am
loud back into g-7, et cetera. so right now details are still a little bit scarce. tensions between the u.s. and russia are pretty high still. but they have kind of settled to a low simmer as russia has dekaes lated along the -- deescalated but the pentagon is not convinced the russians are withdrawing all of the troops there. it remains to be seen whether there will be conditions for the summit to take place or whether the president just sees this as an opportunity for the russians and the united states to hammer out, you know, the mutual interest and where they can actually work together. >> natasha, thank you very much. we're really glad to you have here with us at cnn. look forward to having you on more. a coronavirus catastrophe across india. why cases and deaths are going underreported.

7:37 am
thousands are dying in india each day. hospitals are out of room. they're also running out of oxygen essential to treating covid-19 patients. doctors say 4,000 lives are right now at risk if oxygen doesn't come soon. >> a horrifying image. make shift crematoriums line several streets just to keep up with the ever growing number of deaths. our senior international correspondent is following all of this for us this morning. what can you tell us? >> well, jim, poppy, you just mentioned the city. our team on the ground just spoke with a doctor at the
7:38 am
multispecialty hospital there. and they're warning that the 430 covid-19 patients are at risk. they only have about three hours of oxygen left. that's just one of hundreds of hospitals in that city that are facing an imminent shortage. just one city in a country of 1.4 billion people facing an acute oxygen shortage and massive expansion of covid-19 infections. the numbers on tuesday that were published were a bit lower than more than 350,000 new infections reported on monday. but we're hearing from a wide variety of experts that the official statistics for new daily infections and deaths from covid-19 are probably far, far, far lower than in actuality. take a listen. >> i think it is widely known that the case numbers and
7:39 am
mortality figures are undercounts. they always have been. last year the government estimated 1 in 30 if infections were being caught by testing. so the reported cases are serious underestimate of true infections. >> let me share one other anecdote about how desperate things are right now. our reporter in new delhi forming the line of patients outside a hospital desperate for a dead inside. she said one of them was begging her, a woman gasping for breath to help her find a hospital bed. that's in the capital. now help is on the way. the first delivery from the united kingdom arrived. and there are pledges of assistance from the u.s., with the pentagon promising to help with transport and logistics but from awe stral yashgs european union, france, thailand, orders of oxygen tanks of oxygen
7:40 am
generators, of medicine and all sorts of ppe. and all of that makes a difference because in the case of many of these patients, the oxygen supply can result in whether somebody survives or not. it can come down to a matter of minutes or hours. poppy and jim? >> it absolutely can. thank you for being on top of all of this reporting for us. our next guest is calling on president biden to do more for india. joining me next is the vice chair of the congressional india caucus. congressman, thank you for being with me. of course, you're the vice chair of the india caucus. this is also really personal for you. you and your wife have family members, loved ones in india right now. are they okay and what do they need from us? >> thank you for asking. they are safe. but i also represent a district with thousands of indian americans. and if you talk to them, the situation in india is just horrific and dire.
7:41 am
almost everyone knows a family that has been touched by this. the hospitals are being overrun. they don't have oxygen. and as the reporter commented, the numbers are far, far worse than what is being reported both the deaths and the cases. i applaud president biden for making a commitment to get oxygen. that is the most urgent need to get ppe, to get medical help. but we also ultimately need to get vaccines to india. the president said that he will release the astrazeneca which americans are not going to use after it's deemed safe. but more important is pfizer and moderna need to license the vaccine recipe to allow india and other countries to manufacture it. >> okay. i want to get to the intellectual property in a point. it's a very important point. the question about the biden administration if it they're doing enough at this point in time. according to the white house yesterday, it could be up to two months before those 60 million doses are released to other
7:42 am
countries. that include india. can india wait that long? you're calling for the u.s. to send military support in. >> i think what is most urgent is military support to help patient that's are sick. that is oxygen, that is ppe. secretary blinken has done a tremendous job. he had a call yesterday with over 100 tech leaders. they're talking about getting aid in quickly. that is the most immediate need. i think the administration is on top of it. the longer term issue is how we get vaccines and vaccine development and that gets to the intellectual property issue. >> the ceo of google will join us on the show tomorrow to talk about that point. to your point on intellectual property sharing. six months ago india asked the world trade organization to waive the protection of intellectual property when it comes to covid-19 vaccines. all of the company that's you mentioned here in the united states producing them have
7:43 am
opposed that waiver. it is to support waiving protection on this. the nobel laureate writes any delay in ensuring the greatest availability of vaccine and therapeutics is morally wrong and foolish. the he is right and is president biden wrong not to push to end that ip protection? >> this is a humanitarian issue. let's just look at the facts. the united states government gave a $2 billion guarantee too pfizer to purchase vaccines. if it weren't for that pfizer, they would have never been able to do what they did. our nih gave the ip that allowed moderna to develop the vaccine. what we're now saying is they should share the vaccine recipe with over 100 countries who want to do the manufacturing. they're willing to do the manufacturing themselves.
7:44 am
fiz pfizer would still get paid and moderna would get paid. it is wrong, morally wrong not to share the vaccine recipe which was developed with u.s. taxpayer support. >> have you talked to the white house? do you know why the biden administration is not supportive of that? >> i know there are very senior people in the add maministratio that are supportive of it. we're making the case to the white house. my hope is that the president would at least call the pfizer ceo and say, look, your long term strategy in yand, a huge market, at least waive it for six months or a year. allow india to develop that vaccine and this is good in your own long term interests. it's good for the united states and our interests with the role with india and the rest of the world. >> bill gates was asked about this in an interview yesterday. he doesn't think it's a good idea to share that ip. and his concern is safety.
7:45 am
he brought up safety concerns and he said you have to do a trial every manufacturing process needs to be looked at in a very careful way. you responded to him with a proposed solution on twitter. could you share that with our viewers? i rarely think bill gates is wrong. i hope this is a case he'll engage. the point he made about manufacturing capacity being restricted is absolutely correct. but what i said is why not have a global fund, $25 billion to help with manufacturing capacity? then allow the vaccine recipes to be shared? you won't have a lock of quality control. i think it is patronizing to say that 100 other nations can't have a regulatory process to make sure that manufacturing is safe. the w.h.o. can. no one asking fizer to manufacturing the vaccines. no one is saying they need to do it for free. it's important to understand, they'll get paid. they'll be able to sell it. the reason they're not doing it would be pure greed. it would be that they want to distribute everything and make
7:46 am
it seem profits. that is going to hurt americans. as the vaccine spreads around the world, it puts us at ris income this country. very quickly, "the washington post" editorial board is calling out the government in india for forcing or trying to force companies including facebook and twitter to take down critical posts that they're handling of the pandemic. and i wonder if you believe the biden administration should speak out on that to the indian government at this point. because "the washington post" says it is india's attempt to suppress speech. they cannot be ignored and dangerous to public health. >> "the washington post" editorial is right. i don't think mark zuckerberg should comply in it taking down speech. i get criticized every time on twitter. i mean, probably after thint view there are 50 critical tweets that should i go complaining to mark zuckerberg to take it down? that is absurd. it's a violation of speech. and we should raise that as a universal human right.
7:47 am
people should have a right to criticize they're government. >> thank you. we're thinking about all of your family members and everyone suffering in this tragedy across india. thank you for your time. >> thank you for covering this. >> of course. jim? up next, winners and losers of the 2020 census. a big change coming to congress. for some big states. reminder, president biden's first ajoint to congress is tomorrow night. live coverage. that's next on cnn. my garden is my therapy. find more ways to grow at miracle-gro.com. you need a financial plan that can help grow and protect your money. an annuity can help cover essential expenses in retirement. have the right financial professional show you how... this is what an annuity can do.

soncht the numbers are counted.
7:52 am
there are 331 million people living in the united states. this is according to the latest census that just came out. what is notable is this is the second slowest population growth rate in u.s. history. six of the ten biggest states will lose a house seat, though others, particularly in the south like texas and florida gain representation. our national correspondent joins us now from washington. >> is a big winner. i want to start with what you mention. this is the most important take away from the census which is that political power in this country is shifting. it is shifting away from the northeast, away from the rust belt and to the south and west. take a look at the map of winners and losers. purples is losers, winners in green. look at their locations. you see big gains all across the west other than california which is a loss. and the south. and all of those losers there
7:53 am
are up in the northeast. so it's important rust belt states. the take a look at just these. want to go through the states and why they're important. texas, two seats. that is the biggest gain. you have colorado, montana, oregon, all gaining one seat. three of those are major power houses. knorr, texas, north carolina. all three states that went for trump. soming to keep in mind there. now in the loser category, if you will, you have, again, northeast, rust belt states. illinois, michigan, new york, ohio, pennsylvania, west virginia, and then again california. and, jim, i think this is very, very important to anyone who thinks that the census wasn't that important to take or to participate in. if 89 million people that were counted in new york that they would not have lost a congressional seat. to me that number is just crazy. >> you can find 89 in a single
7:54 am
will bar on third avenue, right? >> exactly. >> that just makes me think how long it's been since i went to a bar. explain how these numbers do though fully impact. yes, the shift of power that you explained is important. but is it on the margins as jim mentioned or it is bigger here? democrats say they are bracing for this. a couple things to keep in mind, the full data that we're going to use to redistrict, they're not going to be out until the fall. that wheeling and dealing is already happening. i talked to multiple source as cross the country. they're already having the conversations. and here's why this favors republican so heavily. when you look at the states that gained, we talked about this texas, north carolina, florida, all political power houses, all states that went for trump. that is a total of four new seats. that is the entirety of the number of electoral votes that hawaii has in total.
7:55 am
democratic leaning states. that gives that you there. the other big thing is that republicans data shows they control that 18 states in full in redistricting. democrats only control about seven. a lot of this goes to the legislature. and that we just showed that you graphic there. that shows that you republicans are really in control of a lot of this redistricting. as i said, democrats are already bracing for this. >> yeah. thank you for following it. >> and thanks to all of you for being with us today. we'll see you tomorrow morning. >> we'll be back after a short break. they said it couldn't be done but you managed to pack a record 1.1 trillion transistors into this chip whoo! yeah! oh, hi i invested in invesco qqq a fund that invests in the innovators of the nasdaq 100 like you you don't have to be circuit design engineer to help push progress forward can i hold the chip?
