tv   New Day With Alisyn Camerota and John Berman  CNN  March 21, 2019 5:00am-6:00am PDT

5:00 am
he's intimidated by people whose stature he can never achieve. >> the president's comments hurt him more than the legacy of senator mccain. >> the justice department issuing subpoenas as part of a criminal probe into boeing 737 max planes. >> members of congress are asking questions. you will see a broadening investigation. >> the american people deserve answers. >> announcer: this is "new day" with alisyn camerota and john berman. >> good morning. welcome to your "new day." it's thursday, march 21, 8:00 in the east. we have breaking news that's sure to spark new debate and controversy in the united states. it comes from thousands of miles away. the prime minister of new zealand announced a ban on all military-style -- these are her words -- semi-automatic, assault rifles and high capacity magazines. the high-powered weaponry used thomo massacre 50 people prayinn
5:01 am
mosques six days ago. compare that to the united states. the murders in aurora, colorado july 2012. sandy hook, december 2012. san bernardino, december 2015. pulse nightclub, june of 2016. las vegas, october of 2017. the list is so comprehensive it is depressing. it is also worthy of note we are dealing with years, not days. six days for action in new zealand. now the united states has largely done nothing or very, very little in the response to these attacks over the years. >> we should point out that action in new zealand could be in place in only weeks. the government saying they will push the gun policy changes through with urgency. the prime minister also announcing a buyback program to take weapons out of circulation and noting those who don't comply will face hefty fines or
5:02 am
imprisonment. ivan watson is live in christchurch with the breaking details and the reaction locally from new zealand. >> reporter: good morning. this country is still in mourning. the families, the anguished families still haven't been able to bury all of the victims. yet the prime minister has announced a ban on the weapons she says were used in the deadliest terrorist attack in new zealand's modern history. >> every semi-automatic weapon used in the terrorist attack on friday will be banned in this country. we do have guns in new zealand that are used for legitimate purposes by responsible owners. i have been steadfast in my belief that the vast majority of owners will support what we are doing here today. because it is about all of us. it's in the national interest and it is about safety. >> so there are a lot of weapons
5:03 am
here per capita. 1.2 million out of a country of 5 million. how will they get people to surrender the weapons? already, the authorities have been asking people to voluntarily surrender weapons. they say there will be a buyback scheme and they are estimating it could cost the equivalent of $70 million to $140 million. the police will run a website for gun owners to register weapons which as of 3:00 p.m. this afternoon if they fall into the categories are suddenly illegal. they say they will strengthen the fines and penalties if you are caught with the weapons in the future. but there is an amnesty period. there will be a transition period for this to take place. already, there have been statements coming from an auckland rifle club, from the leader of the main opposition party. they are all endorsing this dramatic step. so the government thinks it has national consensus in the wake of the terrible atrocity that
5:04 am
was committed just six days ago here in christchurch. john, erica? >> ivan watson for us. we know new zealand is different from the united states. 4.5 million people, 350 million people here. the second amendment in the united states. all we are noting is it took six days to do something, reach consensus. that's been unable to even come close to in the united states. president trump insisted that he wants the american people to see the mueller report. >> would you be willing to speak under oath to give your version of this? >> 100%. >> are you going to talk to mueller? >> i'm looking forward to it actually. >> to reach a higher standard you would do it under oath? >> i would do it under oath. >> mr. president would you still like to testify to special counsel mueller? >> i would love to speak. i would love to go. nothing i would love more. >> what we just played for you
5:05 am
obviously was the history of what the president claimed he would be willing to do in the robert mueller investigation. he claimed he would be willing to testify before robert mueller. that never happened. so yesterday on the white house lawn when he says he wants the american people to see the mueller report when it comes out, should we believe it? want to bring in maggie haberman. dp does the president really want us to see the unedited report? >> you have the answer to your own question. he said it and it was followed immediately by that's up to the attorney general. for instance when he would say he wanted to speak with mueller's investigators and would he do it under penalty of perjury. for a time he did want to do that. even when he was still saying it publicly after a while he have wasn't going to. he would say, it's up to my lawyers. my lawyers don't want me to.
5:06 am
it's their view. he often says one thing and contradicts it very quickly after. i think it is why there is sort of a diminishing return in thinking this has anything to do with what will happen with the report. he could say he wants the report to be made public and have it be the directive to the a.g. but i see no evidence of that now. >> it gives him a fallback to say, look, i said i want it out there. it's not my fault. >> one of the things he was extremely skilled at during the campaign and since but particularly during the campaign is he would take both sides of the same issue, sometimes in the same sentence. his supporters would hear one thing and detractors would hear another. this allows him to do the same thing. >> yesterday in the same sentence where he said that he went on to say robert mueller wasn't elected. how come robert mueller gets to lead the investigation and he didn't get one vote. you see opening the possibility of the american people seeing the report on the one hand with the attack on the other. >> i think he was answering a question the way he thought
5:07 am
reporters wanted him to answer it. yes, say the public should see it because he has a tendency to please the group he's in front of. he immediately busaid it is up the a.g. he said it would be up to doj whether the public should see it. that will ultimately be the position of the white house. >> there is so much back and forth and speculation about the attacks on john mccain. we talked about what was behind the twitter spew over the weekend. what is the thinking on this thursday morning from the white house about how much the impending mueller report is weighing on the president. >> two things. i think it is the impending mueller report. he's been told by many advisers he should not expect it to necessarily be that damning. that doesn't mean it won't be. they don't expect it to be a ken starr report in length. they think it limits problems
5:08 am
for them. the other thing people are missing that took place this week that got under his skin was this unredacted search warrant material on michael cohen. there were several pages of redacted material that looked like they related to trump organization issues. i think that was in his head as much as anything. >> that's interesting. you think some of the legal activity that's taken place -- because we always wonder how much of the president's public statements and public activity is a response to the investigation. that you do think has been a little bit of the impetus here. >> i do. it's gotten through to him that his biggest legal exposure is likely in the southern district of new york. by everything we have seen, it is unlikely that mueller will recommend indicting a sitting president. the southern district investigations which were spun off from mueller -- this was the michael cohen case and its various tentacles since his
5:09 am
guilty plea, that's a greater risk to him and the people around him know that and he knows it as well. the documents got in his head. >> you have an article this morning about john mccain, the president's most recent attack which came yesterday in ohio. you and your co-author talk about the pressure, if there is any for the president to stop this. do folks in the white house feel this is helping him? >> they don't feel it is helping him. first of all, there are many fewer people in the white house than there used to be. those who are still there see it from his vantage point on this. to be clear this is not my justifying it. he has come to associate and there is a through-line on everything here and it is the investigations. he associates mccain with the christopher steele dossier. he offers a set of facts that's been contradicted but he sticks
5:10 am
to it. he associates mccain with the steele dossier because mccain turned it over to the fbi reportedly. he believes the dossier is the source of his problems with mueller. it's how mueller got created. that's also not so. in his mind that's how he's bootstrapping one thing to the next. that's driving it. i wouldn't underestimate the degree to which folks around him share the view that he's under siege and it's unfair. i am not validating that. that's how they see it. people would rather he was not attacking a dead man. that's 100% true. most of them will amend it with, but he has a point. you hear it over and over again. >> fascinating. the picture you paint there and the fact that we are not hearing from more republicans. what we heard from scott jennings this morning was that it's just not worth the
5:11 am
political capital to come out and say something. because it could backfire in terms of not only the president but also what else the president is going to say. >> right. you can look at it almost as a downhill scale since the campaign where when he first attacked mccain and he said this comment about mccain, i was reminded after mccain said trump brought out the crazies. in his commentary at the time trump questioned mccain's war hero status and republicans were upset as were some of the president's advisers when the president attacked -- got into a fight with khazir khan around the time of the convention. by the time we got to "access hollywood" weekend there were fewer republicans speaking out. they saw when they did it, it didn't move the needle or move the president's voter who rs w
5:12 am
need. at this point he's the president. he has a vice-like grip on the gop now. i don't think any one -off will change this. he test it is boundaries of everything he can get away with. he'll see that he got away with this. >> maggie, thank you very much for being with us. appreciate it. so how did president trump's attacks on john mccain go over in ohio? we'll ask a republican congressman who was there with the president next. rk trip. oh no. your new boss seems cool, but she might not be sweatpants cool. not quite ready to face the day? that's why we're here with free hot breakfast. book at for our price match guarantee. hampton by hilton.

5:16 am
president trump was speaking in ohio at a tank factory about national security and the economy and also about john mccain. >> mccain didn't get the job done for our great vets and the v.a. and the other thing is we're in a war in the middle east that mccain pushed so hard. >> joining us is mike turner of ohio. he was with the president at the plant in ohio. thank you very much for being with us. i want to cover this quickly if we can before we get to other subjects. you were in the room. what went through your head when the president said that about john mccain? >> well, i think what's come to light in most recent days is, of course, the use of the discredited dossier and it is being placed in mccain's hands
5:17 am
by democratic party operatives by christopher steele who is being paid by hillary clinton -- >> congressman. i'm sorry. what does that have to do with john mccain's funeral, congressman? >> i'm not talking about his funeral. i'm saying over the recent days the attempts to use john mccain to legitimize the discredited dossier for the purposes of initiating an investigation against the president has come to light in testimony that you are aware of that mccain's associate david kramer testified that they even -- that christopher steele said the dossier was being given to mccain for the purposes of legitimizing it. my expectation is that if john mccain had known this information was democratic party funded, hillary clinton funded information that it had not been verified as christopher steele has testified now, he probably wouldn't have had anything to do with it. that's largely on the minds of people as we hear the president doing these attacks, i think john mccain is a national hero. i worked with him on national
5:18 am
security issues. i cannot believe if he had not been deceived and had been told this information was being paid for by hillary clinton, that christopher steele himself was being paid for by hillary clinton he would have had anything to do with it. >> you are criticizing john mccain. i'm surprised to hear this. this is not what i expected, sir. >> it's not a criticism of john mccain. >> what you are saying is having known better he wouldn't have given something that could be incriminating to the fbi. all he did was get this and give it to the fbi. >> i didn't say that. actually, that's not all that occurred. david kramer testified -- >> david kramer is someone john mccain knew. john mccain -- >> he was an associate working with john mccain. >> no. >> as you know, as i said because i did not criticize john mccain. i said i truly believe having worked with john mccain on national security issues for a decade that if he had been told crist fear steele when he met with david kramer the dossier
5:19 am
was paid for by hillary clinton and the democratic national committee and steele would later testify i didn't verify any of this -- >> congressman, none of this gets to my question. john mccain was given the dossier. he gave it to the fbi. >> under false pretenses. >> doesn't matter. he gave it to the fbi. i don't understand -- >> false pretenses matter, john. >> does it justify, congressman, the president of the united states at a white house-funded event in ohio, in your home state talking about the funeral of a human being, let alone a war hero like john mccain who passed away in august? >> ing tethe people in the room incredibly surprised and i was personally saddened that the information the president was there to celebrate, a tank plant, an accomplishment with the tank plant which was slated
5:20 am
to be closed and as a result of the trump spending will go up to a thousand people with tanks rolling off the line. that's saddening. but you cannot lose the fact -- >> did you tell him you were saddened? >> because of the recent -- >> you were saddened -- >> absolutely. >> did you tell the president that you were saddened -- >> i didn't have a chance to speak to the president after he spoke. certainly it's very public. i'm telling you very much today and certainly the people around me there. i expressed my sadness that he was doing so. again, with the news of the day you have to understand we now know that john mccain was under false pretenses. >> john mccain -- >> took action -- >> i don't understand. >> i don't believe -- >> john mccain's action with the steele dossier seemed to me to be completely irrelevant to bringing up his funeral arrangements before a crowd in ohio. full stop. i don't understand why you would bring that up unless you think
5:21 am
it would justify the president -- >> i didn't, as you know. you did. >> you brought up -- >> no. i brought up the dossier which the president also brought up. you didn't play that portion of the tape. >> does it justify talking about john mccain's funeral arrangements? >> i believe that the president of the united states needs to defend his own comments. >> right. >> while we look at the dossier and the mueller report and as this story is unfolding that we need to look at the actions of the hillary clinton campaign, the democratic national committee. they funded the dossier, funded christopher steele, got the information to john mccain under false pretenses. they entered it in court as evidence. >> john mccain's actions here -- all he did was give it to the fbi. that was john mccain's role. again, there is plenty of time to discuss the dossier. we may have the mueller report
5:22 am
in the coming days. >> yes, that would be helpful. >> we know it didn't launch the russia investigation. we know george papadopoulos was the impetus for the launching of the russian investigation. that will be a discussion we'll have. again, my question to you and i want to talk about the economy. but my question to you is what was your reaction when the president went after john mccain out loud and the first thing you brought up -- the first thing you brought up was the dossier. it was only after we discussed -- >> the president brought it up. you didn't play that portion. you weren't there and i was. you didn't play the tape so maybe you're not familiar with the fact that's what he also spoke about. >> i know. >> my comments are related to that because it is an important issue that you gloss over. i believe if the hillary clinton campaign, the democratic national committee funds christopher steele -- >> you should talk about john mccain. >> goes through john mccain and gives him false pretenses of the
5:23 am
information that he has, it's wrong. >> so john mccain gave it to the fbi -- >> he had to know it was political -- he would not have had anything to do with it. >> the fbi already had the information. james comey getting hands on the dossier from john mccain did nothing in the investigation. >> right. they entered it in court and never told the court it was politically funded research by hillary clinton. >> the misdirection here, the shiny object of the dossier in relation to how the president is treating john mccain -- again, i'm genuinely surprised, congressman, that you brought it up as a member of the armed services committee. >> john, perhaps you should look at the tape. >> i saw it. i watched it. i read the president -- i know very well. >> you're aware he mentioned the dossier. >> i am. >> you are aware, so don't be surprised i'm bringing it up in the context of the comments. >> again, in your mind it doesn't justify talking -- you
5:24 am
stick by you are saddened, yes? >> i'm sorry? >> you stick by you are saddened by it. >> of course. i said it and i mean it. >> okay. >> what you need to acknowledge is what you have said which you weren't saying before is i didn't just bring it up, the president did. >> oh, yeah. >> in the press conference the president brought the dossier. that's what my comments are related to. >> okay. >> i think it is a very important point. it was deception all around. the fact that it was paid for by hillary clinton and the democratic national committee as political opposition research and the manner in which it was used was wrong. >> okay. >> it does a disservice to john mccain and the country. >> all right. congressman, i want to ask one question about the plant in lima yesterday. you are obviously excited about the production there. didn't visit lordstown where gm closed. a lot of people laid off there. are you concerned about the workers there? >> yes, and so is the president. the president mentioned it. he believes general motors
5:25 am
should take actions to re-open the planted and look to others they could sell the plant to. it's surprising. we have an increase in manufacturing. that general motors would be abandoning the workers there. we have experienced it in my town where general motors closed plants. i think general motors needs to reconsider the commitment to its own employees and the country. my father worked for general motors. i think they have done a great disservice to the american worker. >> congressman turner, thank you for the discussion today. it was enlightening. i appreciate it. >> thank you, john. >> will a new assault weapons ban in new zealand lead democrats to renew efforts to push for stricter gun laws here in the united states? we'll speak with a congressman who tried to ban assault weapons next. lution in sleep. the sleep number 360 smart bed, from $999, intelligently senses your movement and automatically adjusts... so you wake up rested and ready for anything. save $500 on select sleep number 360 smart beds.

overnight, new zealand ease government announcing a ban on assault weapons, assault rifles and high capacity magazines. lawmakers taking action six days after 50 people were killed inside two mosques.
5:30 am
new zealand's action stands in contrast to the stalemate in the united states when it comes to stricter gun laws. joining us now, congressman yarmouth who cosponsored a deal last year to ban assault weapons. sir, good to have you with us. >> good morning. >> good morning. your reaction to what we are seeing in new zealand. it is important to point out we know this is a different country and that public is different in new zealand. your thoughts? >> it is good to see a government take immediate action to something approachable which maybe can't be resolved but could be mitigated in some way. that's what the prime minister did. we obviously went for eight years with the republican majority where we couldn't even get a vote on a measure on universal background checks that has 90% support in the united
5:31 am
states. the atmosphere is very different. the role of guns in our society is very, very different. it goes way back as part of our culture unfortunately. i wear this f pin because it is my rating from the national rifle association. i wear it proudly. i'm a member of congress who feels we can make a difference and reduce the level of gun violence in the country. while we can't prevent every gun death we can have an impact and we ought to do what we can to save even the first. >> we have to give credit where it's due. the trump administration rolling out in december regulations on bump stock bans. over a year ago you were a cosponsor of the assault weapons ban. where does that stand and what do you think needs to change in the conversation to even move the conversation forward? >> i think the conversation is changing. i think the politics of gun
5:32 am
safety legislation are changing radically. it used to be while majorities of americans favor stronger gun laws it was never a voting issue for those people. it was, you know, somewhere around eighth, ninth, tenth of the issues they voted on. now it is one, two, three. it is on party with what supporters of guns feel on the other side of the issue. i think the parkland kids had a lot to do with it. march for our lives had a lot to do with changing attitudes. the moms group as well. so the people are letting the politicians know that they want something done. that's a dramatic change from even five years ago. >> quickly before we move on, there has been change at the state level in certain areas. is part of the reality -- >> not much change unfortunately in my state. >> is the reality that this is an issue that perhaps at this point for the united states in
5:33 am
2019 going to be best settled at the state level, not in washington. >> i think that's a very, very good observation and an accurate one. i think that's true of a lot of issues these days. clearly there is a huge difference among states. very different between connecticut and kentucky. we just passed -- our legislature passed a law that said you can buy a gun, concealed carry with no training. you can go to a gun show, buy a gun and carry it concealed. that's what we live with in kentucky. i'm glad every state isn't like ours. >> we have talked about the president continuing to attack john mccain. we have heard from lawmakers, not many republicans. give me a sense. are you talking to some colleagues from across the aisle behind closed doors, even if we are not hearing from them publicly, are they sharing thoughts with you privately? >> sure. most of them are mortified by
5:34 am
the behavior they see from the president. unfortunately, as many other things have been, this is all about republican primary politics. they are afraid to criticize the president because they'll get a primary challenge. >> did they admit that to you? >> sure. absolutely. i have republican colleagues who say when they go home every weekend they get why aren't you supporting the president more? i get where the problems they face, but you have to be in politics for a reason and show spine. what we have seen recently is very discouraging. republicans are redefining march madness at just the wrong time. again, you have a few people who stood up and have been willing to take the president on, but very, very few. >> you are, of course, very important to point out the chairman of the house budget committee. you are holding hearings next week. we know you aren't happy with the president's budget. which questions are you specifically hoping to get
5:35 am
answered? >> we're going to have someone from the defense department and also somebody from the health & human services department. on the defense budget, we spend over $700 billion a year on the pent gochblt -- pentagon. until recently they had never been audited. if they want to continue to request these enormous sums, more than half of all the money that congress controls on an annual basis, we want accountability and we want to ask tough questions about waste and abuse. we saw just a few weeks ago that the pentagon spent $4.5 million on lobster and crab in one month because they had money left over in an account. if that's the kind of thing going on in the defense department we want to know more about it before we appropriate huge new sums for them. on the health & human services side we want to talk about what the president's budget would do to health care in this country.
5:36 am
it cuts health care spending, medicare, medicaid by $1.4 trillion over ten years. that will have a significant impact on the citizens' health. we want to get to the bottom of that as well. >> sir, a quick yes or no on this question. you told us on "new day" you see we are at the beginning of the impeachment process. irrespective of how nancy pelosi sees it, new cnn polling shows a drop in public support for it. does that change where you stand based on the public? >> no. >> you're the first lawmaker to ever give me a yes or no question. if i could give you more time now i would. congressman, i appreciate it. most of all i appreciate that one-word answer. >> okay. there you go. >> thank you, sir. john, that's never happened in 20 years. >> a first. >> that's something. >> oh, my gosh. mark the calendar. kentucky's governor said he deliberately exposed his children to chickenpox. you will hear from him and dr.

on a new radio interview kentucky's matt bevin said he exposed his nine kids to chickenpox so they wouldn't need a vaccine. listen. >> every single one of my kids got the chickenpox on purpose. we found a neighbor that had it and i made sure every one of my kids was exposed and they got it as children. they were miserable for a few days and turned out fine. >> here to discuss is dr. sanjay gupta. what's the truth about the chickenpox vaccine? >> it works. there used to be millions of cases of people who had the chickenpox every year. to be fair we probably all had it because the vaccine didn't come until the mid 90s and most people did fine. there are also 10,000 people hospitalized, a hundred people who died of the chickenpox every year. the vaccine made a significant impact in preventing those
5:42 am

democratic john hickenlooper was asked last night if he would consider a woman as his running mate. >> some of your male competitors vowed to put a woman on the ticket. yes or no, would you do the same? >> of course. well, i will ask you another question. >> we are asking the questions. >> i know. i know. but how come we are not asking more often the women, would you be willing to put a man on the ticket? >> let's get to the bottom line now with dana bash who hosted last night's town hall. both john berman and i recognized the most important part was, you are asking the questions, dana, as it should be. we love that moment. there's that. >> he threw it out there. he defended the comment to cnn's dan merica afterwards saying i just want to put it in the
5:51 am
broader context of we keep asking and discounting the idea of a woman winning. how is that really playing out with the folks of the town hall. >> it obviously didn't come out the way he intended. standing there i got what he was trying to say which is exactly what he told dan afterwards which is he was trying to sound woke. he was trying to make it sound like, yes, he's a white guy running for president. there are all these phenomenal women also running. it didn't actually come out that way. look, the reason i asked him the question is because the men who are running, at least two of them before him, cory booker started this, understand that it is a completely different world in the 2020 field and that the expectation for a lot of people -- men and women -- is there is a woman on the ticket and he is a man running for president which is obviously why i asked that question.
5:52 am
>> it is an established fact before even the event. particularly in the democratic primary, democratic voters have said they want that combination. they are attracted to the notion of having a woman on the ticket and they feel as if women haven't been represented. it is a fact among the democratic primary electorate. >> absolutely. again, which is why it is even part of the conversation. i don't remember it being this much part of the conversation when men were running for president ever. >> no. >> so as you said, the fact that the polls show an expectation, desire among democratic voters is really different. >> dana, we want to ask you about something else that's become a daily fascination. what's going on with the president's adviser kellyanne conway and her husband george conway? and the president of the united
5:53 am
states. it keeps getting stranger. we are in a new phase which is that kellyanne conway herself is speaking publicly and directly about this feud between george conway and the president. listen to what kellyanne conway said in a new interview. >> my husband also has been very critical of the president politically which is unlike him, just because he's traditionally been a private person. in 2016, which is known as the year of the tweet, george conway sent exactly zero tweets. this is new. what's also new is not supporting the agenda of the president and my work there. >> so, again, this has been going on for some time where george conway has been very critical of the president of the united states. says he's not mentally fit to be president. the president respond bed by attacking george conway in public and on twitter. kellyanne conway is speaking out directly now about this and i'm wondering why. >> she doesn't have a choice. when i spoke to her a couple of
5:54 am
times, but most recently about this for a series that i do, it was back in february. things were pretty calm then with regard to her husband. he was still sending out tweets, retweets. he had already formed his conservative lawyers against trump group. but it was kind of in a lull. obviously that changed big time this week when her husband went after her boss for being mentally unstable and continued to do it and then, of course, the president of the united states fired back not once on twitter, not twice but then on the south lawn. so here you have kellyanne conway completely in the middle of it. and commenting on it. look, here's the reality. when they all talk about it and it is a very, very unusual -- even unprecedented situation, we discuss. i'll tell you on the substance of what she said, guys, she's right.
5:55 am
i did a piece on kellyanne conway in the fall of 2016. went to her house in new jersey. she was a campaign manager for donald trump, the first woman to ever be campaign manager for a major republican candidate. she had her family there. george conway was in the house, but he didn't even come say hello which usually happens off camera. he was hiding. he didn't want to have anything to do with it which speaks to what she was saying about the fact that he was very, very private. he wanted no part of the publicity of it. and he supported the president. she in my interview talked about the fact that he was wearing the maga hat and was all gung ho. things changed in a very dra dramatic way in terms of his position and the way he wanted to express it. we are all seeing it play out in a pretty unprecedented and unfortunate way. >> dana bash, thank you very much for being with us. >> thanks.

the robert mueller report and the findings on the russia probe the president is shifting gears after repeatedly calling the investigation a hoax, president trump changes his tune and now says the report should be made public. >> does the public have a right to see the mueller report? >> i don't mind. frankly, i told the house if you want, let him see it. let it come out. let people see it. >> well, the vast majority of americans certainly want to see it. look at the numbers in cnn's polling. 87% believe the mueller report should be made public. with me now, joe johns of the white house. that's interesting. full transparency here. >> it is interesting. you also have the vote in the house of representatives which was unanimous. 420 people voting in favor of transparency, releasing that report. so it's pretty clear which way
