i. mean. this is quite a gathering. a lot of people. media. continues . but it was not all smiles. there's things going to run going to come back to me and are going to make the deal . and beijing also becomes

a target as the us president of. the u.k. defense ministry. investigators and supposedly revealing the true identity. but then mysteriously the tweet just twenty minutes later. news headlines live from moscow this is international. meetings with his counterparts at the united nations donald trump held a special news conference with the world's media on wednesday night as he was grilled over a range of his latest claims he received a rather unexpected reaction. this is quite a gathering. so a lot of people. out of media.
4:02 am
america's so true. didn't expect their reaction but. they loved how honest and it's not diplomatic and find it funny but. let me tell you all day yesterday they were falling over themselves to get a picture with pan to talk about how great the speech was how strong it was whether she said good things about them or not they are. honest with that and they weren't laughing at me they were laughing with me we had fun at the press conference that all talked old enemies like iran and china but also we talked about syria and the successes achieved that really a patrol car now reports from new york if syria is the road to peace that is
4:03 am
mostly because of. own efforts at least that's the way the president sees it i put out on social media and elsewhere i gave my pump a zero john bolton everybody these orders. don't let it happen i said don't let it happen. that doesn't mean they can't be selective they can't be you know go in and they've got to do what they've got to do with terrorists assume the terrorists but don't kill millions of people. and it stuck to you so it was quite surprising to hear the president repeat the words thank you to syria iran and russia for putting the offensive to halt but whatever else the president mentioned the word iran it was nothing pleasant to say the
4:04 am
least very strong language and also at the press conference mr trump continued to bash the iran nuclear deal very hard we know that pretty much the rest of the world disagrees with the american leader on that but during his speech mr trump made it clear that he doesn't really get bothered by that this week you put out a call to action to other countries to rally with america to put pressure on iran rouhani still calling for the u.s. to come back into the old deal but after meeting with world leaders this week did you make any progress towards a potential new deal does it matter what world leaders think going to run iran's going to come back to me are they going to make a good deal and that's even after president trump's first ever chairmanship of the u.n. security council where he can't have misheard an entire round table of other world leaders and government ministers i ask all members of the security
4:05 am
council to work with the united states to ensure the arabian regime changes its behavior deep to the greats the united states unilaterally drooler from the agreement a decision with far reaching consequences that makes more on see the live you categorically condemns the you do not true posed by the government of the us against iran. we agree with u.s. presence objectives on iran but we disagree with the methods for achieving them is abiding by its commitments on the deal it remains the best means of preventing iran to. the nuclear weapon this is something that we are actively working on together with china iran and the e.u. the dispute between the e.u. and the u.s. over how to deal with iran has escalated dramatically in recent days on monday the block's foreign policy chief announced europe will be working with russia and china
4:06 am
to create special payment china laws to allow trade with iran to continue that is ultimately in defiance of u.s. sanctions this sparked some pretty harsh words from washington they european union has this so wrong and it's all because of their ego and their pride. and that's not graining who helped. get this deal together she's trying to hold a deal together because she did it but she's not walking out for the best interest of the european countries who number one don't want to do business with iran the reason that she's attacking based on ego and pride is because she's deflecting the fact that the united states has had nothing but ego and pride when it comes to the way in which we're mishandling trade deals mishandling the way we treat other countries what the u.s. should be doing right now is actually trying to go in that direction which is to open up trade with other countries let american culture spread would businesses and consumers in other countries learn more about the way we think and the way we are
4:07 am
the ideas of america the ideas of freedom freedom of the present liberalism these are great ideas but we're not going to spread them by cutting ourselves off and there is nothing more arrogant nothing more foolish nothing more counterproductive to cutting ourselves off cutting our ideas off from the rest of the world as part of washington's moves against iran the u.s. national security adviser demanded the independent swift payment system on which banks rely upon around the world every single day stops doing business with iran john bolton's comments were quick to provoke reaction thanks and financial messaging services such as swift must take a good hard look. it their business with iran and ask themselves whether it is worth the risk we do not intend to allow our sanctions to the evaded by europe or any body else. it cannot be accepted that the united states would decide with which world regions european companies can trade when they can develop economic activity
4:08 am
i'm sensitive to present trends comments on the rise of oil prices but i think if he follows through to its conclusion he'll realize that it will be good for oil prices that iran be able to sell economist richard one believes it is possible that swift will end up cutting ties with iran. u.s. does put a lot of pressure on many actors so swift might do that we don't know but of course the u.s. has a very very aggressive policy of sanctions so swift will certainly listen to those words the u.s. has put a lot of pressure on various issues and it has used the sanctions where the economics are more aggressively even against the european companies are going to swiss companies and this is it's really. put a lot of tensions on european companies and especially since the financial crisis so at some point europe might wake up and say this is too much i mean we have to go
4:09 am
or own way that we have to strike a new balance. during the u.n. session when some anger against china accusing it of meddling in the upcoming u.s. midterm elections but it's not easy going to an off explains such tactics have been seen before. in fashion the talent to dazzle has a design as bright and bottom in political fashion donald trump markets himself as chief. and it looks like russia is going out of style not once was it mentioned in trump's un speech regrettably we found that china has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming twenty eight. election. coming up in november. against my administration they do not want me or us to win because i am the first president ever to challenge china on trade washington's
4:10 am
needlework has already retailing their agenda actions that china has taken undermine a rules based order unfair trade practices particularly by china the chinese are very active we can watch very focused efforts to steal american information well china we here at r.t. know what it's like to be showcased in the window of the white house political boutique first things first accusations of election meddling are still in vogue so make no mistake what used to be russian hackers and the presidential vote in twenty sixteen giving way to chinese hackers and the mid-term ballot this season permits continued hacking of our defense secrets to its focus on collecting vast repositories of personal personnel to find the information to better unable to vote is china exploits our transparency and open society china is also being introduced to the concept of sanctions being thrown in the same basket with moscow
4:11 am
over beijing's purchase of russian weapons in this narrative the trade war waged by the us on china fits like a glove after all the purpose is the same to hurt and nation's economy our trade imbalance is just not acceptable. china is market distortions. and the way they deal. cannot be tolerated when it comes to pushing an independent foreign policy china and russia cut from the same cloth this trend is also propelling beijing to the top of the u.s. diplomatic kill list we do monitor very closely what appears to be an effort to expand their in their own region in places like africa latin america the pacific islands. and we are concerned by some of the tactics that the hunt for chinese spies is in full swing too as if the land of the american dream has
4:12 am
been rid of russia's agents and what seems to be a new fad in this china dominated collection military rivalry taiwan is a breakaway province from beijing's standpoint while from washington's it's a lucrative opportunity no wonder the massive new us three hundred and thirty million dollar weapons deal with taiwan fell flat with china washington is definitely a free that china is in the passing lane many economists are predicting that sooner rather than later china will have a larger economy than that of the united states of america that from washington's point of view presents an accidental crisis for the united states of america likewise you see there are states trying to recruit other nations into its china ball particularly japan australia and india this is a very combustible situation so it appears like russia is indeed stepping aside
4:13 am
this fall winter season replaced by china in pretty much every dimension you know the boogieman dress is one size fits all. the independent investigative group belling count along with the british newspaper the telegraph claim to have discovered the real identity of one of the souls breed know of asian attackers if not only responded brush it off alleged real name but also some other surprising you tales now after the investigation was released the u.k.'s defense secretary took to twitter to thank those who have been working so tirelessly on the case but then twenty minutes later governor williamson suddenly deleted that tweet without any explanation auntie's easterly breaks down the investigation. the online blog belling cat which is run by elliot higgins claims serve uncovered one of the two men who were named by the british government has
4:14 am
been responsible for march's novacek attack in saul's free now the two men were named by the u.k. as being alexander petrol and bashir of but according to belin cat this is the latter of these two men who they've all masts they say his real name is an athlete checked and that he's a colonel in the g.r.u. but according to their own source in the article an operation like the one in souls three would usually be carried out by a low ranking operative who would be no higher than a captain cat have in the past carried out investigations into incidents in the ukraine and syria and it's those incidents and those investigations which of course people so called into question the veracity of their work what he's doing is nothing more than reading tea leaves every level analysis is a method used by hobbyists never been to syria. doesn't speak arabic and
4:15 am
he can't duck says press on the set from the content of his on. the software incident has been a sore point between the u.k. and russian governments and the u.k. governments have consistently blamed the russians as being responsible and that was the thing. which repeated itself when to reason may address the united nations general assembly the u.k. saw the consequences of these norms being a road in salzburg this year when russia recklessly deployed a nerve agent on our streets the united kingdom has presented detailed evidence clearly no doubt in charges of attempted murder and the use and possession of a chemical weapon against agents of the russian state. uncorroborated rhetoric on the incident is on the rise the u.k. is stubbornly rejecting the idea of a joint investigation with russia which we have proposed on numerous occasions that's despite the fact that such a joint investigation is exactly what's called for in the chemical weapons convention if they don't want to cooperate it begs the question then of whether the
4:16 am
u.k. has something to hide now we've heard no official response from more thorough teams here in the u.k. to those specific allegations in the ballin cat blog the police and the metropolitan police and the home office both having not commented on them and the russian government while they've consistently denied any involvement in what took place in seoul three hundred of called on the u.k. government to hand over any evidence or intelligence that they've gathered so that they can help with the investigation i mean while the russian foreign ministry has responded to the latest information claiming the new investigation is simply peddling false information all right well it's your thursday program here at r.t. international plenty more stories to come your way in just a moment. the
4:17 am
democrats are socially liberal they are. warm and so are the republicans and the problem people have a trap is that he's pro peace and that's not mix up the bottom american today that runs except for against iran. well you know that. walking the walk and you know you have to do it you have to do but he's actually going down the path that hillary clinton clearly was going. forward saying you know we need to go back to fighting force that's. also the position of the guy that. goes in any case even if there is a number of contingency plans to go back to this country. could
4:18 am
have you with us today for the program we're talking to the headlining act of this year's general assembly about a president. not just of foreign policy has been hitting out at but socialism is coming for a talk as well. and reports now it's an argument that we have heard from him before . trump's un general assembly speech this year contains some old material not long ago venezuela was one of the richest countries on earth today socialism has bankrupted the oil rich nation virtually everywhere socialism or communism has been it has produced suffering corruption and decay all nations of the world should resist socialism and the misery that it bring us to everyone said roughly the same thing in last year's un speech and he got
4:19 am
a similar word response the problem in venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. trump doesn't seem to realize that the cold war is over and the specter of soviet style marxism leninism is no longer hanging over eastern europe meanwhile trump also doesn't seem to realize that socialism is rather popular around the world the german social democratic party the british labor party many political organizations and leaders across the world adhere to some vague form of socialism in fact socialism is getting more popular in places that are a lot closer to washington than venezuela. we believe that every working class american deserves the opportunity to change
4:20 am
their economic destiny and their children's future and that is what that's the message that we need to bring into the midterms. leasing this crisis in our democracy where people who like the same laws don't apply to the rich. can and we should absolutely have a health care system that provides health care for every citizen in our country socialism is quite popular among the lenny ells in the united states more popular than capitalism in fact some pollsters say that if donald trump had run against bernie sanders in the twenty sixteen presidential election he might not have been able to pull off his victory we decided to ask dakota lily a young activist why he thinks that socialism is on the rise in the united states to people my age especially the really sick you know bills that capitalism brings
4:21 am
upon if you look at the student loan crisis right now student loan debt is the largest holder of debt in the country more than credit card debt will be a for profit you know educational institutions that charge sixty seventy eighty thousand dollars per. semester per year you know the unemployment rate trump says it's four percent or three percent in actuality it's eight nine ten percent third half the room is made up of socialists you know it's made up of people from bolivia and cuba venezuela china you know angola south africa it's made up of people who completely disagree with him on you know if you look at last year's speech he said you know socialism in venezuela is not failing because it's being you know put to use wrongly it's being put to use completely correctly no one said anything for a good solid five seconds and then this year they laughed at him actually so when trouble repeated his anti socialist tirade at the un the question is was he really aiming at caracas or was he gaming at a new source of opposition to his policies here at home where it seems that trump
4:22 am
has on wittingly made socialism great again hey look mop and r.t. new york. danish police are investigating one of their own female officers for hugging a protester wearing the head job during a rally against the country's bad on the muslim face veil the issue had been raised by an m.p. . photo of the office and the protest can be interpreted as police in denmark sympathizing more with demonstrators supposing the niqab ban than with parliament legislation therefore i want to complain about the officers behavior in the office reportedly hugged to the protester who would burst into tears after hearing she would not be fined for staging a sit in the protest also said she was relieved to find out the police would not be looking to forcibly remove face veils now the stop the islamization of denmark group joined the complaint against the officer of the independent police appeals
4:23 am
authority is investigating the case as lawyer insists she acted in accordance with police guidelines denmark's a ban against face veils or came into effect on the first of august and follows similar restrictions in austria belgium and france critics though are concerned that where this is taking society communities are made up of various groups and the police need to police all of those groups fairly. the nature of the complaint. could effectively be summarized as the police aren't far right. and that that isn't what the police's job is other places job is to facilitate protest in a liberal democracy and that seems to be what the officer went along with doing policing the population of a country is not an easy thing to do and you cannot have the police enforcing. any law. at the lower end of the scale we have absolutely no discretion whatsoever
4:24 am
it doesn't work like that in a democracy. has at the russian foreign ministry turned into a troll factory a new report by the us news website the daily beast claims the kremlin has upgraded its troll and bot campaign by using the twitter accounts of its embassies and the foreign ministry it claims they are trying to confuse the public by blending the truth with multiple competing narratives. and not.
4:25 am
the article singles out one particular russian tool the contest for the most ironic post about russia's relationship with the west and you can see the winning pitcher for the best cartoon on boris johnson following his anger at the russian foreign ministry spokeswoman being invited to the house of commons we discussed the story with columnist and author ted rall and states government does this all the time u.s. government officials make jokes all the time the president of the united states uses
4:26 am
social media extremely effectively and makes lots of jokes on it in fact he probably would not be president if he hadn't used twitter extremely effectively so it's mystifying why anyone would say that this is somehow inappropriate the united states. has has house official channels on twitter and otherwise that make jokes i've even seen jokes about things that are pretty grim for example the department of defense twitter account has made jokes about drone strikes and weapons that civilians in afghanistan and elsewhere. those are pretty tasteless jokes. i guess you could say that it terribly tasteless joke might be something that would cross the line but jokes themselves are why not they're an important part of dialogue thanks for joining us for programmers science and often no.

medical use downs to. lead guarded cardio. and when you. look at the distance was most of the book but.
4:28 am
still it's about seeing. those. just show. the democrats are not socially liberal they are pro war and so are the republicans and the problem people have a trumpet that he's pro peace and that's not acceptable in america today that runs except for against iran. well you know. todd todd has been walking the walk. you know you have to do it you have to do but he's actively going down the path that hillary clinton clearly was going.
4:29 am
to. run welcome to worlds apart israel has long made the point that it puts its security and the lives of its service men above everything else and maxim that may have contributed to the downing of the russian reconnaissance plane over syria now those most americas this approach of the back of israel candy to preserve the mode of accommodation they were once so proud of well to discuss that i'm now joined by a very close to north director general of the russian international affairs council mr carter now for the good to talk to you thank you very much for the time thank you for inviting me now one of the reasons russia and israel of president putin the prime minister netanyahu have been getting along so well is because they both are hard core realists with very strong i would say unashamed focus on security and in
4:30 am
good times that could lead to a better understanding but in bad times that could also provide a basis for a very sharp collision is the latter are likely. well i think that it is getting a little bit more difficult to plea its traditional role in syria which is they're all often known as broker. has always been problem of being able to preserve good relations with all the size of the continent including shia and sunni including iran and gulf states including is a fairly and by the unions and i think specifically talking about two years ago there was a gentleman agreement between iran and the ease or ill. and did not want to interfere into the conflict between israel and iran and in exchange.
