parting at present a trump there addressing his supporters will head of his inauguration joe biden attended mass at st matthews cathedral in washington while on perhaps the most important day of his life joe biden and his family were joined by congressional leaders from both the democratic and republican parties a sign of the bipartisanship joe biden hopes to foster during his presidency. i can take you now to d c. salat is standing by all over outgoing president trump has left the white house give us a sense of the significance of this moment. it's a very significant moment the end of one of the most unusual and also divisive presidencies in the united states as you know leaves the country in a very dire condition and also a bit
4:05 pm
a very unusual feel well that we just heard him speak here they are at a joint base andrews near washington d.c. bragging about his successes claiming success for developing the vaccine for instance which of course is not true no word of all the 400000 killed is 9000 victims in the united states alone so a dire condition he of course sees it differently and he said also we will be back in some form and that will be the big question now what's going to happen next with regards to the donald trump and he has now left florida on his last day as president of the united states and all of this will be an inauguration like no other talk this through what we see today happening at the ceremony. well 1st of all the whole city and d'antoni areas on the lock down and that has also never happened before so there are some so if you were to concerned of course following the violent insurrection that was incited by donald trump so it's always worth to remember that this is how we got here this is how it all began 2 weeks ago
4:06 pm
on the day there were fears of an insider attack on joe biden so usually more than 1000000 visitors are cheering to their new president in the national mall that is all locked down this is as close as you can get as you can see roadblocks you are behind me and we are quite far away of the u.s. capitol so it will be a ceremony without the public it will be a speech where joe biden will try to unite the nation and that's exactly the kind of rhetoric and tone we will hear from him here today will still be a big celebration in spite of the circumstances in a very significant shift in american politics and of course when joe biden goes into office he faces a daunting task he'll have to get right down to work right away what will be his biggest priority and he has a very he has outlined and set a very ambitious agenda of course he will run start as you said right away issuing several executive orders for instance we entering the paris climate agreement out
4:07 pm
of which donald trump pulled out climate change being one of his top priorities cold with 19 addressing that is also a very important topic for him he will issue a master mandate for the 1st 100 days in office racial equality the economy that is reeling right now as a result of the cold 19th and so does joe biden inherits a several overlapping crises that will be very challenging very challenging star for him as u.s. president and he will also inherit a country to divide it as it hasn't been since the end of the civil war all right offer solid reporting from washington thank you. donald trump meanwhile has arguably been the most divisive president in living u.s. memory he leaves office as the only president to be impeached not once but twice and the up ended america's position in world politics breaking with longstanding alliances while building an unprecedented wave of support back home with his
4:08 pm
america 1st message so how will history remember mr trump we take a look at his legacy. i am officially running. for president of the united states was we are going to make our country great again the it was his campaign slogan and became his mantra but once in office did donald trump make america great again ask a trump supporter and they'll say yes and point above all to job creation and tax cuts as major achievements. ask an opponent and they'll disagree likely citing trump's handling of the corona virus pandemic as proof of his failure of the hospital for a thorough clear and unarguable search the birth of the world. after 4 years in the white house there's a range of issues that define trumps legacy and divide opinion some of them will
4:09 pm
continue to shape american society long after he's gone such as the new makeup of the u.s. supreme court his appointment of 3 new judges has ensured a conservative majority years to come. on the streets police brutality continues to enrage people and racial tensions are running high the recent study by the f.b.i. found that hate crime is at its highest level for more than a decade and critics say trump has done nothing to bring people together give me what is a progress and who i really can do out grow as a person right probably wouldn't stand back and stand by but i'll tell you what i'll tell you what somebody has got to do something about anti for and the left because this is not a right. trump also leaves the controversial legacy when it comes to the environment he's reversed more than $100.00 protective regulations and left the paris climate accord environmentalists say it's cause damage that will be difficult
4:10 pm
to reverse. as the sunsets honest time in the white house the united states is a deeply divided nation and donald trump stands accused of having undermined dialogue and democracy itself his distrust of science and journalism and his complicated relationship with the trees have not only polarized us society but been connected to the spread of conspiracy theories around the world. or look at look at all of the failed. and that may end up being donald trump's most profound and engineering legacy both in and outside of the united states. joining us now is jessica you know hacked she chairs the history department of free university good to have you with us growing up by these past 4 years of the trump administration what has been the lesson for germany. well the lesson for
4:11 pm
germany is certainly has been that this has been quite a nightmare in terms so for lation ships it in terms of from mutual ackman de sion or lack there are there are but the lesson has also been germany is a democracy that very much came about inspired and flanked by the united states for a long time the united states was a model for germany and its recess the cetacean as a democracy after world war 2 there has been great doubts in the last 4 years how stable democracy is and i think what we see in the elections of 2020. is dead great democracy is being extremely resilient to even its its own enemies from within and i think that's a lesson to take very seriously when the new president president elected joe biden was asked what message he had for leaders he said america is back from the vantage
4:12 pm
point of germany will it be smooth sailing will all be forgotten now. you know of course an odd i mean there are and there are so many problems on the trade bill that even joe biden won't be able to solve it but what will be changing is of course 8 and a different culture of communication and we are in dire need of that i see that downplayed a lot of the media right now people say well you know economically or in terms of. military engagement in the nato and finger pointing not much will change but a change in communication will already help us a lot to grow closer together again right and words and emotions are so incredibly important in international relations they really make the fuel of any relationship not just between humans but between nations as well now a bilateral relations as you were referenced to have been 10 u.s. under the a trump administrator how can the incoming president buy and reassure his german
4:13 pm
counterpart that whatever he does another president will not undo. i think there's a disappoint quite honestly was donald trump departing and announcing that he's going to create a new party the patriot party which i have no doubts he will try to do and perhaps even be able to pull off the i don't think biden can do that at all biden just has to work for the next 4 years on the one hand on bringing it on country in by incidentally also his own party which is deeply divided something that we see very little there often reported in the media here in germany bring those together and at the same time reassure germans that whatever happens in the united states liberal democracy will at the end be resilient enough to always pull itself out of any qualifier there has asked the united states has just been doing all right in our remaining at 20 seconds what's the public mood here in this country germany towards the incoming biden and ministration. i think most of us are exhilarated was
4:14 pm
joy this is a great day for liberal democracy and you've got a new senate and i think ultraman to do just that again i have to chair of the history department at berlin's free university thank you for joining us thank you very much want to take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world. iranian president hassan rouhani has called on the u.s. president elect joe biden to return to the 2015 nuclear agreement and lift sanctions on tehran iran he said his country promises to fulfill its commitments under the deal if the united states does as well ronnie was quoted saying that the ball is now in the court of the u.s. . rescuers in china are redoubling efforts to communicate with a group of miners trapped underground for 10 days and you hand written notes sent up from the stricken miners requested they be given another phone 22 miners are
4:15 pm
trapped in the gold mine when an explosion sealed off the entrance to the site. here in germany the government has extended the current coronavirus law down to mid february although the country. they'll be a lot more of these to be seen medical masks will be compulsory on public transport and in shops the so-called f f p 2 masks off a greater protection but common surgical masks will also be allowed. and there's to be much more working from home the government's imposing strictly. before that happens there's likely to be some hard weeks ahead infection rates are still nearly 3 times the preferred level. but with patience persistence and sticking to the rules all-stars he's hope the pandemic will start to loosen its grip on germany.
4:16 pm
and i'm joined now by a political response and. why did the government decide on these measures. well there are 2 factors at play here on the one hand that we do see that to me the positive trend of infections going fly for you down but they do plateau way too high as of tuesday we have recorded here in germany attack us on the 148 desktops to way too much and on the other hand the nano factor is that there are new mutations of the virus this is a new known into a corner virus pandemic a question that we don't know if those mutations of the virus will spread more widely if them or infectious and if they deadlier as well so the autonomy tease by reconnecting their love it down and by also enforcing new measures are try trying to rein in not only the the current of our responding as we know we thought those
4:17 pm
so mutations of the virus and out the same time it is a race against time to isolate those mutations before this praed and others so to try and reach immunization by continuing the vaccination rollout this beat a lot of criticism for it's not being fast enough here in germany but do keep in mind out so far one point treat me then people have been vaccinated that's 1.5 percent of the top so german population this is happening of other countries in the world haven't even started their vaccination of all that yet and now i understand that it took to channel certain state leaders hours to reach agreement on these new rules what were the main stumbling blocks. well it is always up to the regional leaders to implement the measures decided as meetings and time and again and go america has been pushing for tougher restrictions she's facing as she she
4:18 pm
bases her stance on the what scientists tell her about regional leaders are divided for example on school closures should that continue should be a bit lighter should the school be able to reopen partially or totally that was one bone of contention another bone of contention in that discussion is the problem of working from home this is an issue for some people to implemented as a rule it was only a we come in they should so far i need hasn't been followed us turly it had been last march so now it's going to be make made more difficult for companies to shy away from it and we're in our remaining of 15 seconds how much support is there for these tougher and longer a lockdown. well generally the german population do support the does support those measures 40 percent of them want to strict a restriction on 20 percent of the with the lock down as it was so generally
