serious difference including on democracy and human rights. >> calvin: the president wasn't the only person who was busy today. first lady was also active in havana. you can take a look here. she was at the an old peanut oil factory from the 1930s after the revolution, it belonged to the ministry of culture. something very controversial happened there, too. ten cuban girls who were selected, according to white house be were told about a cuban official in spanish to remain quiet and not to cross herr legs. michchle obama spoke the with girls about her lets girls learn initiative with the cuban and american flag right behind her. she told the girls that she is very much interested in education and to empower the girls as to empower their families. i'll turn now to my colleague here, hael vela, who had a chance to see some of the reactions from the people today. yesterday we uncle talked so much about people lining up to
cade and some people -- motorcade. >> hatzel: we started off in revolutionary plaza, a lot of folks hoping to see the president, and now we were earlier this afternoon just down the street from where we are now -- what is this? -- old havana, right? and a lot of people walk around, as you know, because it's old havana, there's lots to see, lots of folks walking around, and our photo urnal jist was down there and was -- photo journist was able to capture the beast. let's take a look and listen a little bit of the interaction that we heard from folks and people watching. calvin, this is something that cubans have been waiting to see, right? for days this is what they've been talking about, the beast and the president, hoping to get a glimpse for the first day at least. saw a lot of security, a lot of state security keeping people away, but now for the first time we're seeing that folks are able to get closer.
president was macing his way where he's holding a panel and talking to businins leaders here in havana. what a sight to see. >> calvin:e has really made his mark in terms of trying to reach out to young people. that's really what he wants to do. and he spoke about that at the news conference earlier today, saying that he really wants to reach out to the younger generating, thinking that ten, 20 years from now this will be a normal thingor a u.s. pot president to come to cuba. >> hatzel: that's what he hopes, and let's think about this. he's thinking forward. he's thinking decades in future. not about the immediate reaction that his policy is going to have. >> calvin: he said last night when speaking to the em bears worker that he was so happy about the fact that he brought his children to speak, and he said they will be the ones who will look at this as not an historical event but something that they will see as very natural as having a u.s. president in cuba. so a lot going on here, but also let's show you one final photo
his day ended rough late 9:15 yesterday. he left old havana after having dinner at a restaurant, but then he took a photo earlier when he was at the cathedral in old havana with cardinal jaime ortega, and we know how important this meeting is because i'm sure the intertion bebeeen if two was a simple thank you for hand-delivering a letter that he wrote in the white house to raul castro. >> hatzel: and it's a change in policy, kampf, that affects both sides. it had affects the president we'll be right back affects his legacy, but also it affects cardinal ortega because as we know the church has gained new ground here in cuba in the last couple of decades. francis, pope francis now playing a new role in that relationship, not just between the church and cuba but also between the united states. >> calvin: the church playing a very critical role, in fact, holding some of the secret meeting going back 18 monons before the announcement on december 17th of 2014 where the president talked about
after some 550-plus years of animity and acrimony. but right now we dmit president is going to be headed t t if not already in old havana meeting with cuban entrepreneurs to talk about chef employment, to o lk about the growing private sector here. there have been a number of people who have been able to have their own businesses, throroh the government. so the president is hoping to speak with them at a panel discussion. then after thaha the at time he will go to the chief of missions home where for a couple of hours he and the first lady will be getting dreads for their state dinner tonight. >> hatzel: maybe a nap. >> calvin: and right now you're looking alive pictures where the president is going to be talking with cuban entrepreneurs. he's hoping t talk for about half an hour but we can't speak enough about that newews conference that happened earlier today. that'll to be moment, though t he president would like to think of that wreath-laying ceremony and the playing of the national anthem to be big moments, but certainly the news conference
yes. and at the end, i mean, everybody is going to talk about what hapns at the end of that news conference. mr. castro abruptly ends the news conference, and then the whole thing about pitical prisoners, him saying, show me the list, and as you know in south florida that list is circulating all throughout email and social media. >> laurie: i think if we have the moment at the end of the news conference where mr. castro and president obama will were about to shake hands but it didn't quite turn into a handshake, it turned into more of a salute. not sure what happened there but it was a very awkward motel between the tworesidents where they were together amber alert day, they shook hands, everything went fine, but those things are very choreographed at the revelation palace but when mr. castro locked he was unhappy with the question hoo he was asked by andrea mitchell at abc, soon after he gave the president a nudge, they walked off-stage
salute, not a handshake. >> hatzel: i'm still trying to furrinin that one out. >> calvin: an awkward moment between an old revolutionary and a testimonily elected president in president obama. so aftft that we will have a lot more coming up at the top of the hour, we will have a comprehensive look at the days' event from the wreath-laying ceremomo to the event dealing with the cuban entrepreneurs with the president and, of course, leading up to the state dinner tonight at 7:00. for now for my legal hatzel vela i'm calvin hughes liven havana. >> janine: day two of the president's trip in havana.a. we'll check in but later. >> laurie: let's bring in our senior political reporter michael putney with his perspective on today's most surprising events. >> michael: surprises and also unforgettable images from havana today, and i would say that program and president castro made news today simply in the first place by standing side by side, taking questions at the news conference. that hatzel and calvin just mentioned. this is something raul castro never does. he did however today.
in fact, castro got irritated, short tempered when he was asked by cnn's jenna costa who is a second generation cuban american why does cuba still have political prisoners and why don't you set them free? castro snapped back saying, if you think there are political prisoners, give me their names, so me list and i will release them by tonight. clearly raul castro is not used to being confronted by reporters. i don't think he handled it very well. he got defensive, defiant. finally he said, that's enough questions, and he tried tow octavia stage but again there was that awkward moment at the end where he grabbed president barack obama's arm. it was very awkward. bottom line raul castro looked old and crotchety and unused to being asked questions in a very direct way, and i think president obama looked presidential. i thought he looked pretty good.
list of political prisoners, here'she third one i have received by email. this is from the cuban american national foundation. they say that cuba now has 47 political prisoners, and if you don't think so, here are their names. the prison wherehey're being held, the sentences that they are surfing, and the cuban american national foundation has it. so if raul castro needs a list -- >> janine: i'm sure they would be happy to share that list. >> laurie: if only one of the reporters could have had that list to hand to him on life television broadcast around the world ask he said he would release them if he had that list. >> janine: pharmaceutical molecule, thank you. we want to take you to a story you saw first on local10 this morning 1, three people shot in key west. >> laurie: it's a horrible story story, a effect disputed turning right now and innocent bystanders hurt when they tried to break it. amy is live at jackson memorial hospital where two of those victims are being treated. >> amy: one of those victims
