engagement with the government of china, of russia, of vietnam. i think that more engagement, more visits by u.s. individuals, more family reunification, all of that is good. look, we need to move forward. and things changing. and we need to encourage that change. i think the best way to do that is by what the president outlined. it was a bold, gutsy, historic move and i hope that congress won't try to frustrate those efforts. because, i think it's very, very important, especially for the cuban people that, what the president announced actually goes forward. >> all right. thanks to congressman jim mcgovern from massachusetts and mercedes you'll be back later this hour. thank you to both of you. still ahead we took cuba off the black list while north korea remains a threat. the cold war become ace cyber war. that's next. they challenge us. they take us to worlds full of heroes and titans. for respawn, building the best interactive entertainment begins with the cloud. this is "titanfall," the first multi-player game built and run on microsoft azure. empowering gamers around the world
