donald trump until recent may try to show a unified front they've talked about their special relationship we've seen people here talk about how the only special relationship trump seems to have is with him. going to france and that coming out onto the streets in such numbers to speak new so one of these people are trying to make it be understood that the u.s. president is not welcome here and again this is just one of many activities that have been taking thank. you. yes. i couldn't believe it myself think but it's been like this for the last couple of hours really the mood here is very persistent in terms of showing the president he's not welcome to the u.k. and this is something that's been. leading up to that as it forced out was that is he arrived yesterday we saw a protest outside the u.s.
ambassador's residence in london where donald trump was spending one night was. earlier today it was done with this massive giant balloon depicting donald trump wearing a nappy was flown over are just outside parliament also here in central london so obviously the mood here seems to speak for itself in many ways with so many people finding the time and the urgency to come out to say that they just don't want donald trump that the two leaders were getting down to business and their spouses were having a much more leisurely time first lady millennium trump a joint of the prime minister's husband philip for a game of bowls and while members of the press were advised to wear flat shoes mrs trump was seen walking around the mall in green and high heels now despite the show of unity between may and trump there are plenty of tensions under the surface as artie's but i've got to have comments. america and the u.k.
have a special thing going a special relationship they called it language culture values defense then came trump but surely he can't ruin it right the special relationship between the u.k. and the u.s. has been strong for many years and will have opportunity to talk about a possible future trading relationship really remember barack obama when he came around they couldn't get enough of him everyone wanted to shake his hand and get a picture what a swell guy. trump just doesn't have the charm it seems where barber was greeted with cheers and
applause trump gets protests and outrage even a giant trump baby balloon and americans being told to avoid drawing attention to themselves be aware of your surroundings and exercise caution and expect to live in the vicinity of large gatherings keep a low profile. one would imagine a special relationship would be a little friendlier but what do we know to say hip in this explosive and politically divided age of ours but why the hate ok trump did slap britain and europe with painful tariffs and steel and alum india and mrs me certainly wasn't happy about it expressed deep disappointment at the unjustified decision of the united states to apply terrorists to steal and i mean even if. it cannot be done by taking unilateral action against your partners then there was the
whole iran mess so much effort years of work to get iran to verifiably stop pursuing nuclear weapons and then trump torpedoes it but come on you couldn't have been alone britain's always been there for the states donald trump undermined progress towards normalization of relationships with i have been very clear in a number of conversations with the president of the united states about the belief that the united kingdom the j.c.t. away the nuclear deal with iran then there's the. maze of government and strategy are in shambles she needs friends they're back here and who better than the us the people voted. to break it up so i would imagine that's what they'll do but maybe they're taking a little bit of a different route so i don't know that's what they voted for well that wasn't very
helpful no trump did offer the u.k. a tariff free trade deal if it really did as the e.u. but goodness me this is very little that special in this relationship aside from how fast it's losing its specialness and on top of that trump being trump just had to rub salt in the wound i'm going to a few hot spots we have nato there we have the u.k. and then we have putin. and i said putin may be the easiest of them all you never know but i'm going to a pretty hot spot right now right with the lot of reza lot of resignations problem just. saying it's easier to talk to putin then to you all allies but they you go how's that for friends it's like the phrase goes with friends like these who needs enemies. british police say they have found the source of
a nerve agent that killed a woman in the town of amesbury and left her partner in critical condition they say a bottle was retrieved from the house of the survivor and that it was analyzed at the nearby military laboratory at porton down on wednesday july eleventh a small box was recovered during searches of charlie rose house in amesbury it was taken down for tests following those tests scientists have now confirmed to us that the substance contained within the box who is novacek and police are investigating whether there's any link between the amesbury incident and the screen paul poisoning in salisbury back in march thirty's earlier said they don't believe the latest pair to be struck down by a substance they were deliberately targeted at the area in amesbury around the house where the nova chuck was found is still cordoned off officials say there is not believed to be any wider threat to the public. we're now joined by
david coleman who is a professor of organic chemistry at cornell university thanks for being with us here on r t international. so you have a unique perspective and you can help us kind of get around the science of this all . you know and so scientifically so far there is no link that has been drawn between the screwball case and the information coming up from the u.k. police has been somewhat nonspecific what do you make of this latest incident in terms of connection. it's impossible to make a connection or have there been no data presented and so you're at the mercy of the authorities assuring us what they found and what they know what it is and you know how bottle ended up and they're the victims houses and for that matter whether or not they actually were poisoned by not which uk if you're a want to get down to it well. that kind of brings up my next question i guess it
would be one of the key claims in the script all poisoning was that only russia can manufacture novacek is this true false totally false why is that. they're very simple compounds is about my third interview with you guys and countless interviews with various agencies around the world. that the molecules are simple the most complicated part of it is is not killing yourself in the process of making him but i mean it's it's three steps from commercial available material so any organic chemist could do. in fact earlier in another interview said that it was simple as hell to make air and reiterating that now so for our viewers who basically don't really have the scientific mind or who don't really know because the term is being thrown around. i don't want to say willy nilly but i mean it's being used as if it's this evil russian thing how exactly is it made
well i put out a final exam in my course because i've been in the middle of this controversy and i said ok let's do the experiment so i explained what the controversy was not i said design a set the system i gave them one that supposedly killed a banker back in one thousand nine hundred five and and the kids were supposed to write out basically a recipe for forming it and they all got full credit it was so easy i knew no one would lose credit because it's like design it's like asking a bunch of bakers to make a chocolate chip cookie recipe. it's interesting to hear your thoughts i mean this is one of those things where if you take the politics out of it the science can speak for itself dave call him professor of chemistry at cornell university thanks for being with us here on our international. you're watching the international more news after a short break. like
welcome back this is our t.v. international the russian president's spokesperson has expressed hope that ties it with the u.s. can be repaired. to dmitri peskov head of monday's summit between donald trump and vitamin put. we knew that mr pascal wouldn't really spill the beans just before the big head to head however we did hear a few things from him lately the media and the west as well as some politicians have really been distressed or even agitated about the summit coming up in the capital of finland feeling that one of the. two leaders may use some sort of leverage in a bargaining game while the spokesperson of mr putin says that kremlin isn't
looking into any kind of bargaining options i also asked them about some specific potential bargaining chips up and leave me go right up to the western journalists are going on about some possible big bargaining game that could on ravel in helsinki what should we be watching out for anything like that at all does moscow have any bargaining chips for the americans when you put. the word bargain is absolutely inappropriate here instead positions will be compared and there will be clarification as to confirm or dispel any fear is you know that our relations are in a quite pitiful state and you know that russia was in the one who initiated the ruining of the complex of our relations we hope there is a political will to normalize relations so it's quite a middle neck of police for him at the top of it so rumors again in the american media that russia might hand edward snowden to u.s. authorities have nothing to do with reality if you think that. you know they have
nothing to do with it it's out of the question about it as a hoarder or before then the charisma but you know enough well why are you so stubborn when it comes to even the slightest possibility of discussing crimea more some believe it's donald trump who might be ready to start discussing the matter from a different perspective gonna like other western politicians maybe it's worth having a go with him though it. might look there's only one way to discuss this and continually saying until russia gives crimea back there will be no this or that repeating this is like some kind of mantra which is absolutely logical it's a road to nowhere it has no perspective and nothing will come of it and with more on. what if mr trump is the one to stop this is there any hope of that. no you know we are not and never have been wearing rose tinted glasses but we can count on that i mean hasn't ruled out that the issue of the north stream to buy
blind for direct natural gas deliveries from russia to the you will be brought up in a healthy weight lee mr trump has seemed to be just a step away from even pulling berlin for working together with russia here's the reaction we heard from mr putin's press secretary to that would you mr bush but let's not forget that north stream too is an international project it's not even russian german or german russian it's a multinational enterprise which has many shareholders among them very big companies from farias countries and let's put it like this threatening the shareholders as well as threatening russia and germany with sanctions if this project goes further these threats are a big concern. speaking of the enormous amounts of work in terms of craps by both administrations the press secretary admitted that the agenda is far from being for
here's mr peskov with more on that very process. there's no clear agenda existing it will be created by heads of states as they go. we will be showing the full version of that exclusive interview with the press secretary of the russian president on monday just several hours before donald trump and a lot of merit. and helsinki. fifteen year old palestinian boy has been killed during the latest clashes on the israel gaza border according to palestinian health officials. i. know who i.
one israeli soldier was injured in the unrest friday's riots marked one hundred days since the start of the so-called march of the time palestinians have been rolling up the border fence every week accusing israel of occupying their ancestral lands throughout the day demonstrators burned tires and hold rocks at israeli forces responded with tear gas and live bullets our correspondent. from reports from the scene. so i'm only one hundred meters away from the fence that separates gaza strip with israel and as you see palestinian protesters are trying to approach a friends and break it well every time there was an attempt by israeli forces or every act back with live ammunition and tear got palestinians as you see it still come to to the protest are very close to the fence and are burning tires to blur the vision of the israeli snipers that palestinians are still motivated and still passionate of the about the great march of return demanding the right of return and
demanding breaking the located on the gaza strip that has been imposed for more than eleven years palestinians today are also protesting express expressing their brains and anger against the demolishing of the israelis. but to invade it the israelis are also closing more restrictions on procedures on the gaza strip while they're going to close. down crossing which they're not allowing any imports exports to gaza strip and they're only allowing the humanitarian needs there you can see the palestinians. angry and expressing their anger at the palestinians say that this is the only way they can achieve their demands expressing their anger and spreading the phrase to the whole world palestinians continue to raise the palestinians. bag up high during the protests and as you see the palestinians are very very close to the fence while they know that there are had only weapon state
soldiers stationed along the fence this is one of the injuries that came from the fans just right now i'm going with you but it's not going to. get the beginning of the march eighteenth children worked directly shot dad and if they are be to including the one hundred thirty eight palestinians killed since the beginning of the marks. of. two historic launch towers at the cape canaveral space center in florida have been demolished. the structure stood for more than half a century during that time they were used for several lunar missions and also to send probes into the far reaches of the solar system site will now be used for a new space exploration project which aims to establish
a lunar colony by twenty twenty two a. space is cool does it for me i'll be back on top the hour with more news the washington nationals that was. just standing in the middle of the street and someone reaches in the back in the back with a waistband the cop is not going to sit did and no give them the benefit of the doubt because people should be reaching their waist being with cops having guns train going to sample the still move. to the rule a nazi don't it was still active. in the nineteen seventies cretonne had as the chair of its board a man convicted of mass murder and slavery. a german company develops of the divide a drug that was promoted as completely safe even during pregnancy. terrible side
effects what has happened to my baby anything. yeah she said she's just. minix of it mind victims i have to this day received no compensation and never apologized for the suffering that. i want the revenge. hello and welcome across or all things considered i'm peter labelle like a bull in a china shop donald trump style and negotiation skills were on full display at this year's annual nato gathering he was not shy about how he feels about the alliance
now the trump putin summit is front and center would be a mere photo op or something more. crosstalk in the trump putin summit i'm joined by my guest ariel in london he's a foreign affairs consultant and analysts in new york we have charles or tell he is a private investor and writer as well as host of the podcast show sunday which are also and unlike jackson we have daniel mcadams he is the executive director of the ron paul institute for peace and prosperity are gentlemen cross-talk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want i always appreciate daniel let me go to you first then lake jackson let's think about the afterglow of well it was a interesting even entertaining to some degree summit of nato this year i'm not sure if anything really is going to stick. because we have like mccrone coming out saying well we talked about the budget increases but we didn't agree on anything so
i don't know what that we know it was a public display and trump style ok and he left a lasting impression as we go into the putin trump summit now where do you think things stand go ahead daniel. well trump said all the right things for the wrong reason yes you missed a lot of the big points but he exposed one thing that's probably the most important thing to come out of the nato summit which is that nato is a racket it's an absolute racket and he exposed that with his comments about germany germany if you are so afraid of russia if russia is about to invade you why are you in richmond then with billions and billions of dollars in trade and not building up your own military he's exposed it for the whole world nato is a racket i think that should be the one thing that comes out of the summit i really from what's the perspective from london because that's where the president the united states is right now go ahead. the number one this concerned with smattering donald trump we don't have
a serious debate over the. two days ago. but look a form. of the economists. had this exposé in the b.b.c. saying we need to stick together because i'm not you know crumbling so the general outlook within the political. elite i mean among the politicians and in the u.k. is that they don't know i mean they are scared they are scared of you know losing the incentives and everything which has been granted to them so far so we as i said before we don't have a serious debate we have a kids' ations blame game but we don't have any serious debate which is lucky and it's exposing and i agree with you that in europe i mean. i don't blame donald trump they allow him to you know to play on demos ok i don't blame donald
trump well yeah i mean i agree with daniel let me go to charles right now i think a lot of questions that need to be at answered were never asked but one thing is for sure charles donald trump was true to his avocation he said businessman by american weapons. by american energy that's his real message it really wasn't security it was about we want you to buy our stuff here and that was his bottom line charles go ahead well i also think that there's a lesson in history when nato was formed western europe lay in ruins and the soviet union was a gathering threat very severe gathering threat that was seventy years ago almost and the nations the big nations in europe are very wealthy there's speaking it just as an american based in it here in new york new york a diet hundred fifty two was the manufacturing capital of america was a major export are today new york lays york state is a bloated bureaucracy our manufacturing is in ruin and you know we need to spend
money we need to encourage investors to spend money here it absolutely makes no sense across the political spectrum i think in the u.s. to be sending billions and billions of dollars to defend germany against. russia when germany seems very interested in promoting russia's economic interest so it's time to have their grown up talk and it's ridiculous to wait till twenty twenty five for these rich european nations to foot their share of the bill ok daniel the the interesting thing for me is that you know and i've said this on this program a number of times nato exists because it exists they don't have a reason why except there is a huge bloated and very comfortably paid bureaucracy there everybody gets a cut of the pie and that's why i mean you know teressa may not even be in power this time next week and she told trump i want you to be tough with putin ok i mean in that's the only card that she gets to play is that and that's the only way she gets to stay closer to europe through this brags that quagmire is to nato is the
alliance that gels everything together but it's really an emperor with no clothes argument go ahead daniel. well she basically got caught in a lie and she's trying to get other people to help lie the way out of it you know she's desperate for or trying to bring up the scruple affair because you know everything that they said about it has completely been undermined by facts you know the idea that went over there and and poisoned a former russian spy but the fact of the matter is. you know the germans there's a new poll that's out saying that more germans want americans to leave then to stay and that is such a significant thing europe does not feel threatened by russia at all otherwise they would spend if you had a threatening neighbor next door you may buy a gun you may move you may do something else but if you just sit there and take it then you don't really feel threatened and i think that's the case with with with
with jerk with europe and you're right nato is this big monster that exists to exist it's a bureaucracy that built a big scary claw. is our new headquarters and i think it cost a billion dollars at least i'm sure other experts anding it to very level and areas funding things like the atlantic council which does nothing but but you try to destroy journalists who are not on board with the neo con anti russia view so it's become a very mild level an anti freedom organization rather than pro west pro freedom organization you know and you know it is it we're going to talk about the some in the second half of the program but i mean did nato come off very well after this summit here because i think we all agree trump questioned a lot of important things but having question what i think is fundamentally you know the reason why the alliance exists in the first place and it was really quite telling dizzee he's the one that said well russia isn't an enemy it's a competitor again this is his mindset this is not the mindset of a bureaucracy
a military alliance ok they don't have that mindset because you know the trump wanted you know in the west they build weapons to make money it's a business a country like russia builds primarily weapons for defense it doesn't mean they go don't go out on the road and sell them but primarily it's for defense go ahead in london. first of all we have two of the nato. is a huge business for many people. the nato. industry and to russia industry. it is the glue which which is sticking together the western nations so that's why we're seeing this fear. and the sense of insecurity among among the elite athletes and as you rightly said and what it won't cup two thousand eight hundred mosco proved is that people are not afraid i mean ordinary people are not
afraid of russians many citizens of people from all over the world came to russia and they were pleased with. what they saw in moscow in russia all together so it is. rightly said is this forty seven percent of all of the german populace which is unwilling to have. u.s. troops on their soil it is only thirty five or thirty four which is still willing to have u.s. troops on or on german soil so if you talk to the you know regular people with even in poland. republic in france they're not scared of of russia as kids maybe it is only the elites who those who are you know participating. you know profiting from from from stigmatizing russia are afraid because what they are going to do you know whole russia business will collapse yeah you know where they are
going well find find work and i know that because they will russia be an anti russia it's a it's also a racket ok i mean you can never be you can say anything what you want about russia and be completely wrong and you'll never be punished for it charles charles let me just jump in let me just yeah let me just say one quick thing if you happen to have eastern european audiences and you are willing to smell russia a lot of money yeah i remember when i arrived six years ago. to this country and i started to be working as a research and in the house of commons i remember and i will not tell the name of the person but i was assured that if i'm going to participate in this could spot if i'm going to participate only on the merit of the fact i'm coming from the eastern europe i will earn a lot of money so it tells a lot about the industry and you know it absolutely in a charles.
