4:00 am
i don't. have. that. pale. of criticism from all of the political spectrum the media. i don't know where. you have been watching.
4:01 am
american president. interested in treason supposedly. really. full french.
4:02 am
a very warm welcome to you from all of us here at r.t. international in moscow it's just after eleven o'clock in the. donald trump is now hailing his well helsinki trip and he's completed his european trip which began of course with a nato summit and ended with this historic meeting with vladimir putin a positive steps and real progress those are the words both leaders used to describe the talks something that politicians and media in america might find a little disturbing especially after the u.s. leader vouched for putin at a media conference when the topic of election meddling came up. during today's meeting i address directly with president putin the issue of russian interference in our election. and i have to repeat what i've said several times including in postal context the russian state never has and never will into internal american affairs. do you hold russia at all accountable for anything in particular yes i do
4:03 am
i hold both countries responsible i didn't know the president. there was nobody to collude with where did you get the idea that president trump trust me you will i trust him he defends u.s. interests and i defend russia's interests president putin denied having anything to do with the election or france or twenty sixteen every u.s. intelligence agency has concluded that the russians did who do you believe i have great confidence in my intelligence people but i will tell you that president putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today he offered to have the people working on the case come and work with their investigators with respect to the twelve people i think that's an incredible offer. i was an intelligence officer myself and i do know about how dossier said compiled a conclusion can only be made by courts and not by an intelligence service when that didn't happen q outraged. i don't know which side is the bride and were side
4:04 am
of is the groom anderson but it sort of feels like we're at a wedding you have been watching perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an american president today's press conference in helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an american president in memory why is president trump putting himself in his a vulnerable high stakes scenario at and letting flat in their poor john brennan former cia boss and now media darling even went as far as to brand trump's appearance treason donald trump's press conference before minson health think you rises to exceed the threat. sold of high crimes and is demeaning it was nothing short of treasonous looks only will trump in the silly who's who in the pocket of republican patriots were you so what is trouble learned from the storage event never question u.s. intelligence or following an onslaught of attacks off of the media conference
4:05 am
decided to defend himself in the usual way. he stressed that he has great confidence in u.s. intelligence which has repeatedly stated russia meddled in the u.s. election troubles so he can focus on the pastas the two nuclear powers must get along earlier we spoke to former u.s. congressman ron paul who believes the current drama is based on the old us media habit of making russia out to be the enemy but you also mentioned so far in his program about the american media and that is a big problem because for some reason they're almost unanimously endorsing the idea that we have to have an enemy and at this point especially for the last twenty years they've been working very hard to make russia the enemy and i think this is this is wrong and it's not the democrats alone that do this it's the democrats and along with some disgruntled republicans who just they just don't like trump but no i was very pleased with what went on and it's
4:06 am
a step in the right direction they i think the biggest thing that if they ever had a serious discussion i guess it would come out on how much we've been involved when we should be involved for instance in ukraine and how that occurred but if they don't have want to concentrate on those problem they want to look forward i think that is great but i would like to i think the next best a step ever would be for us to reassess this and say that trumps going in the right direction and talk amanda getting rid of the sanctions on russia our correspondent elizabeth cohen has been following the much anticipated and hotly debated summit looks at why it turned into such a drama. so i just made it to the area intended for the media very close to where donald trump would meet people out of our group and i see this so the hosts are setting the rules straight and perhaps that's a. security precaution very soon we'll find out whether the arabs can see when they get the same direction when the presidents meet so that head to head meetings last
4:07 am
two times longer than originally expected and we were only allowed to film the first forty seconds oh the only words that we heard from mr dog she was only dog trump who said that there was a good start to the summit there's something else i pointed out for myself the microphones for both theaters are different for some reason the one for donald trump looks to be much bigger and a bit more complicated than just being president bush the good. the president is just remarks that we hosted the successful football world cup i'm not going to give this to you mr president so the bull is in your court but i'm also given the us is due to host the world cup in twenty twenty six. soon it will be two years since donald trump was elected but guess what still worries the.
4:08 am
us presidential press poll allegations of meddling and collusion there were sitting right here and almost all the questions from this part of the room were about that and it was rather fascinating to see how the two leaders almost teamed up to dodge these kind of questions however none of this seemed to convince american journalists and while i was looking at them when they were leaving the room they seemed to be even more for straighted then before the leaders met donald trump and vladimir putin though when they were heading towards the doors i could only see smiles on their faces meanwhile vladimir putin took part in a heated interview with the american channel fox news and which he was pressed on key issues relating to russia. firstly russia as a state has never meddled in the internal affairs of the us and in particular has
4:09 am
never meddled in its elections or secondly but wait wait let me have some patients and the biggest thing was because we really think that it was possible to meddle in the us elections from the territory of russia and to influence the choice of millions of americans. but it is ridiculous. at the prostitution but i'm not asking whether they influenced i'm asking whether they try and i will answer now what. that is about whom everyone was talking about i'll return to that don't worry that they open emails as they told us and there was information that inside the democratic party they were manipulation was in favor of one of the candidates and that is all and that the leadership of the executive body of the party resigned so they admitted this fact and that was the most important thing but in all of it that the manipulation of us public opinion must be stopped when you put and they have to apologize to the voters what now mr miller has been
4:10 am
you know better mr president let me answer. your set you're indicating that if you don't like my answer tell me and then i will stay silent because but if you want americans to hear my opinion and have more patient was there going to be that being that what you were mr miller and his colleague. was not good i don't know rather but why mr miller and his colleagues let me finish speaking disrespectful near them this time you won't stop me deeply don't make the relations between the u.s. and russia the hostages of your internal political struggles. and what can we want to be given some documents on the issue at least similar tiriel because you see no one is saying anything specific is like in the case of the accusations against us over the meddling in the us political processes or we had not been given any documents should watch it and now we see that two more people became the victims of this so-called novacek but i had not even heard the names of these people for things like who are these people and for what they
4:11 am
suffered and joy out of that if. they picked up the bottle that was used to attack scrupled i can't may i ask you one last question sir. but let us handle this issue first what bottle who picked it and where from and what is its chemical formula. you know whether there are different reasons for which these are people who suffered when maybe these reasons were inside the u.k. but no one wants to investigate this properly they just threw empty accusations in for what sake why worsen the relations between our countries when russia wants to build them with the u.k. properly then you can work with that because. you see this as a turning point ten and by effort of the effort by the west in recent years to isolate russia. you see that these efforts do not see any success and they could
4:12 am
never have seen it given the size and the value of russia on the scale of global security and in economics and i mean the energy cost part of the world's economics on. the understanding of what is uniting us and what we have to work together is leading us to the idea that it's necessary to stop the attempts to fight each other and on the country to unite our efforts for overcoming common difficulties and problems i think it is a good start on that i'm cautious start but then just hours after putin and finish their meetings suddenly new accusations appeared of russia interfering in american affairs the russian woman charged by the department of justice with conspiracy to act as a russian agent twenty nine year old mary a boy to know who recently graduated from american university in washington d.c. was arrested on sunday she was accused of developing relations with those who have influence in american politics to advance russia's interests her attorney made
4:13 am
a statement denying she was an agent he also said the woman offered to be interviewed by the special counsel's office but the special counsel's office showed no interest in speaking to her so we brought up the issue with political analyst lionel. what you're going to hear regarding this this russian citizen is she is called a russian agent what is missed completely is that agent should be referred to as a lobbyist and agent in law in american law means a representative. when american media say agent they think secret agent. espionage agent you know something nefarious something involving behind the scenes something illegal something that is other than an agent this particular person was charged with basically being a lobbyist and asons without having registered with the department of justice could more indictments happen absolutely will the media american media clarify what that
4:14 am

4:18 am
your program returns in just a moment. you know world of big. and conspiracy it's time to wake up to
4:19 am
dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race on the dramatic developments only and. i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical of. you said.
4:20 am
thanks for joining us here for the program facebook has admitted to categorizing thousands of russian users as interested in treason supposedly for advertising purposes this has led to concerns over who might really want to target these users as what i guess the explain. it's simple facebook exists to serve advertisers not users not you and i said a rerun of its. advertisers pay money they want direct access to the right uses the target audience you might fall into the interested in islam category or interested in homosexuality group it depends on the things you click on line which facebook tracks and then advertisers or
4:21 am
governments can tag you but one of those categories was treason interested in treason officially russian people who facebook deemed as anti government to the russian and facebook confirmed it to us treason was included as a category given its historical significance given it is an illegal activity we have removed it as an interest category that is their official statement they added that the key word was hardly ever used by advertisers which means that it was used there were people out there searching for treason inclined russians and serving them with presumably propaganda encouraging them to commit treason against russia months it was found out facebook removed the category but the pundits managed to twist even vat this isn't about sixty five thousand russians being
4:22 am
targeted with foreign propaganda meddling in internal russian politics let's see they say the real controversy is that these people could be targeted by russian authorities imagine if ace book categorize americans as potential traitors fact advertisers that blog zuckerberg op have expressed how upset i am that the russians try to use our tool to sow distrust what they did is room and we're not going to stand for it. and now at the meat of it when it's russians being targeted by propaganda to sow distrust in russia at five until you get caught. he has sent a request to a number of human rights and journalist groups asking for comment as to whether such a practice constitutes meddling in a country's internal affairs human rights watch the american civil liberties union
4:23 am
and amnesty international have responded to our request saying they are not in a position to comment. and are saying with facebook the social media giants targeted ads were also apparently used by some in the u.k. labor party to deceive their own leader that's according to a recently published book control old delete how politics on the media crashed our democracy by tom baldwin a senior labor party members tasked with spreading campaign messages through facebook ads ahead of the twenty seventeen general action so acted only jeremy koeppen himself and his close aides as the target group this was to ensure that as few people as possible in the u.k. would see those messages at the same time fooling the party leader into thinking his order had been carried out parody those behind the plot in the labor ranks were unhappy with corbin's left wing agenda here's how the plot is described in the book . when they were told to pay for nationwide it's regarded as madcap such as one and
4:24 am
voter registration they made sure that few saw such messages except a tiny slice of left wing activists if it was there for them they thought it must be for everyone it was and that's how targeted ads can work political analyst are for hughes says this shows there are deep divisions between the establishment and the progressives within the labor party. there's an ongoing kind of faith within believe reporting it's actually a fate for the heart on the soul of the liberal party the liberal party was built on a socialist democratic platform that's platform was moved to the center on the seas to the rate by twenty people or the very man who led the united kingdom into the illegal wars in iraq and when you consider what's happened there and in libya and several other countries throughout the middle east. there's new socialism and the blurring wing of the liberal party so i'm i don't think for one second that it's going to move after all or some high. misadventure misadventure i think it's been
4:25 am
a planned operation from the start to sabotage germy cauldron. one of america's two major parties the democrats may be entering a new era as left leaning progressive politicians are increasingly unseating political establishment veterans a correspondent takes a closer look dianne feinstein has long been a top boss among the democratic party but recently the california democratic party decided not to throw its weight behind her but instead to give its endorsement to a progressive named haven't now kevin de leon saw this is a political blowout this is what he said about his shocking victory. we presented californians with the food. to the washington playbook and a quarter century this fits a pattern here in new york city a twenty eight year old socialist defeated longtime representative crowley now
4:26 am
nancy pelosi a leader of the democratic party says that progressives gaining the upper hand is no big deal this is isolated circumstances in certain districts they need to resume to shape to let that get you so carried away is necessary for them to minister that they that in a very progressive district in new york. were progressive. is a person. palin is a down decision it is not. something that's going to now deliver on and the kazuo cortez say that they are giving voice to issues that the mainstream of the democratic camp is alongside away from they want free health care and education for all americans they also want to abolish the immigration police for good now we decided to talk to sander hicks' a progressive who's running against mainstream democrat carol maloney in new york city people need health care dianne feinstein was against single payer she made
4:27 am
fifty two million dollars for herself in her ten years for the richest senators out there and yet she doesn't believe that people need health care so that's pretty pretty plain to me that's why bernie sanders really struck a chord and have people like feinstein people like the incumbent here in the twelfth bestial district that got to go carolyn maloney she voted for the iraq war ship voted for all the wall street bailouts the patriot act just like dianne feinstein voted for the patriot act is with or out of touch there endorsing this national security paranoia state that favors wall street and war at this point the democratic party seems to be pretty well unified around only one thing opposing donald trump however among the rank and file there are some pretty clear disagreements about policy and it's pretty clear that in either party to be seen as a defender of the status quo just doesn't cut it with voters hey look mop and r.t. new york and we're back at the top of the hour.
4:28 am
chose seemed wrong on one old quote just don't hold. me to old to get to shape out these days to come to educate and indeed train because betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. the new global economic war is unfolding in the realm of education the right to education as being supplanted by the right to access to education low its high education is becoming just another product that can be bolton sold but it's not just about education anymore it's also about running a business where you could. not could this also trying to make
