a bill has the reaction from one as itis. there were warm relations between the united states argentina brazil especially with precedents. but also. apparently him and trump. other for a very very long period of time because modi so mikey used to be a businessman suit this is certainly happened because back last year argentina and brazil were even shielded when the united states implemented. the euro and union canada and mexico among others even lifted 25 percent tariff from 10 percent. minium last year so this is certainly coming as a surprise donald trump both always accusing this countries of evaluating the currency in argentina and brazil saying that this is something that hurts farmers in the united states because brazil argentina exports mostly commodities like so you have been wheat. other things so reaction there let's go live to the white

house to speak to our correspondent kimberly halkett really he announced that by a tweet it obviously took the leaders of brazil and argentina by surprise do we know why the president did this. yeah there seems to be a little bit of an indication the exact timing today a little bit unclear but certainly it does appear the president may be responding to some comments that came from the brazilian economic minister last week where he said in an interview that he was not concerned about the exchange rate between the brazilian rail and the u.s. dollar given the fact that the u.s. dollar is very strong and the u.s. president has said that he has or is accused both brazil and argentina of devaluing their currencies perhaps that sort of strident tone potentially is what set the president off we really can only speculate but certainly this has not only come as a surprise but it was unexpected that there be this kind of punitive action given

central bank the federal reserve here in the united states he's been very vocal that he believes that it should be cutting rates even further even to the point of negative rates as we've seen in some european countries he's argued in the past this gives european nations a competitive advantage so given the fact that he's feeling like his base of support american farmers may be getting hurt the manufacturers may be getting hurt as a result of what he sees as a devaluation potentially deliberately his mind on the part of argentina and brazil that he's now trying to push the federal reserve in the united states to lower those rates to to further carry out his policies an agenda which has always had as you point out a domestic focus can really help him with the latest from the white house can believe thank you syrian government air strikes have killed at least 14 civilians in the province a warning some of the images are disturbing. at

10:21 pm
referring to those man cons propaganda or his hatred he was referring to the politicians ramping up the rhetoric around the response to these kind of incidents and using ever more stronger and hardline type of policies in order to reference them and responsive and mr merrett clearly not happy about that bearing in mind his son and the other fatal victim saskia jones very much in intent on rehabilitation as a response to crimes. and crazy and have lined the streets to honor certain french soldiers killed in mali last week the soldiers died when their helicopters collided in the dock it was the biggest loss of french troops in one day in the early 4 decades france has been leading a 6 year military operation in the region fighting groups linked eyesore. saying in france 3 emergency workers have been killed when their helicopter crashed

past the point of no return job providing the health and safety of everyone on this planet do we really want to be remembered as the generation that bertie did serve in the sand. while the planet burns the other option is the path of hope oppressive resolve of sustainable solutions a press where more fossil fuels remain where they should be in the ground and where we are on the way to carbon neutrality by 2050 very strong words there from the head of the u.n. well africa is already struggling with the effects of climate change and as nick clark reports now from kenya it's the water supply that's especially at risk. yes you join me along side the mara river in kenya and we're ready to demonstrate the kind of thing that's at stake in madrid now the rhythm our emerges from the

10:29 pm
communities around them i mean obviously to be able to cope with effects of climate change so i think the most important would be a multi-pronged approach ensuring that we have better commitment for me to get on and also ensuring that adept issues down to ensure that we question our communities against the effects of climate change well in recent weeks there's been almost constant flow of sunshine that we're not even close to doing what we need to do to reduce emissions and even stabilize the situation that is the urgency of the position the climate delegations face in madrid and you would think that with the growing public recognition of the dangers ahead that world leaders would do what is required madrid must build momentum because in places like this time is running out . a hazardous foam has covered one of india's most famous tourist beaches for a 4th consecutive day the white substance along chennai's marina beaches believe the cause skin problems and fisherman have been told to avoid the nearby waters it
