5:02 pm
but there was some tension leading up to the presidential tie tight just hours before trump lashed out on social media of the crown suggestion that europe should create its own all they can stakes of the story. president's strong crown i've always been fond of emphasizing that close personal friendship was well as the importance of the transatlantic alliance that was very much emphasized during my visit to the united states back in twenty seventeen but since then things haven't gone so smoothly over seventy world leaders have gathered here in the french capital to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the end of the first world war trump marks his arrival by taking to twitter to say he felt insulted by none other than his colleague and friend and former president micron of france has just suggested that europa build its own military in order to protect itself from the u.s. china and russia very insulting but perhaps europe should first pay its fair share
5:03 pm
of nato which the us subsidizes greatly troubles of course referring to the interview given by micron earlier in the week in which she expressed support for a joint european army a military force to defend the mainland from a range of threats one of which was perhaps a surprise on that list we need a europe which defends itself better alone without just depending on the united states in a more sovereign manner when trouble did arrive in paris their leaders tried to smooth things over saying there was no problem with even micron's office admitting the remarks might have caused just a little confusion instead of hurt you have the european security to be being assured just lines the united states and we need a little bit of a loser regime would use it for you sharon you know my attitude has been this we want to show your true employer to see through you think the general way we can do
5:04 pm
it the best thing most efficient can be something that you both want so as the u.s. president arrives in the french capital it was all smiles handshakes and thumbs up for the cameras but this misunderstanding by far isn't the only sticking point between the two leaders the iran nuclear deal for. the pulling out of that agreement by the united states was roundly criticized. france germany the u.k. issuing a statement of regret not to mention. pulling out of the paris. is the official reason to gathering here in paris today. to discuss behind the scenes the question is the progress being made on those issues. be created. president putin and german child from sixty high profile figures expected to attend commemorations set to take place throughout the weekend the main memorial event will be on the eleventh day this
5:05 pm
shooting stops at the. the french capital icon and. conflict earlier held together at the site. and on friday the british prime minister joined. in honoring the form of the great war in which over fourteen million people were killed. now president trump has had his say over a c.n.n. journalist accused of inappropriate behavior at the white house press conference he defended a twitter post that apparently shows reporter jim acosta. tries to ask the president questions the u.s. is split over the issue with some claiming the video has been doctored in order to justify adding a cost of the white house the video was posted by trump's press secretary sarah saunders and shows a close up version of events and then a claim to cost and never touch the intern and called the whole incident
5:06 pm
a threat to democracy here's how the situation at the presser unfolded. one of the statements that you made in the tail end of the campaign do we go honestly i think you should let me run the country you run c.n.n. all right and if you didn't well your ratings let me ask you that said i asked one of the other folks that said now for this wednesday that's enough the president the other folks that said now for me ma'am you are a rude terrible person. was this an inappropriate action aggressive or was it simply an accident well the answer to that depends what side of the political spectrum that you're on liberals and defenders of c.n.n. say that accosted did nothing wrong jim acosta clearly never touched that white house intern that's just a lie and what i saw was a battery not by jim acosta but by that young white house aide if you can use a fake video use a fake video should go all the way to do something like this. guy. but conservatives are rounding in on
5:07 pm
a cost accusing him of being violent practically shoving a woman who is just trying to do her job it just is it crosses a line you don't put your hands i don't want him a cost to sort of wrestling this young white house in turn the video was posted originally by paul joseph watson who is the editor in chief of the right wing news outlet no one is in for wars now paul joseph watson defended himself and said that he simply zoomed in and that the quality of the video had gone down due to the re uploading it isn't don't say that it isn't sped up it isn't slowed down all i did was look at it again is this an example of symbol don't clip to change its meaning no it's virtually identical is it won't hundred percent identical no video compression is going to result in it looking more generally different so where is the truth americans are probably reminded of the famous dress controversy in the photograph of one looked at it one way it was black and blue and another way it was
5:08 pm
white and gold depending on the eye of the holder or now we have a. whole rising video clip people look at it they see the same seconds of visual recording but interpret it completely differently it seems that as the political crisis escalates that americans literally no longer see things i there's probably never been a better example of. how the american public is divided we're all looking at the scene the exact video but we're seeing what we want to see democrats are looking at that video and seeing jim acosta absolutely not coming not touching this in turn republicans are looking at it and say he touched her he laid hands on her and i don't really think that's how we should be looking at it we should try to put our politics aside and just try to see what happened to this is a press the press corps that's very hungry they don't get very many face to face chances to meet with the president as they did so they're all competing with each other the room is big you know all their bosses want them to get
5:09 pm
a question and so it's not surprising that there's a scrum here. going to go back to our top story now where the french president has welcome donald trump in paris ahead of celebrations commemorating the end of world war one talk about the bromance and the tensions and we're joined live by. the discuss this further what do you make of my concert just in the needs to protect itself from the u.s. and what do you think it says about the state of the trans i'm not taking relations . so it's a question of i'm not sure. who are perfectly ok a few technical problems i would try again so what do you make of micron suggesting that europe needs to protect itself from the u.s. and what do you think it says about the state of trans atlantic relations. so. the question. ok look we're going to have to leave it there husni because of
5:10 pm
the technical difficulties apologies for that we will try and get back to it if we can sort that out. now fighting continues in the key yemeni port of date as the saudi led coalition attempts to wrest control of the city from the rebels. the u.n. says thousands of people are trapped in the seized intends to come to spite warnings from aid groups about the amount. we have denies any deliberate targeting of civilians. issued a warning that children are at imminent risk of the. whole day to day very much. on the from lines of a brutal war a brutal war against children children have already suffered tremendously continue
5:11 pm
doing so so any escalation of the conflict affecting all day will have brutal consequences not only for the hundreds of thousands of children here in the whole day who may be called in the middle of the conflict but it will have consequences for the millions of children throughout yemen who are counting on the supplies coming in through who day to help them to survive here and also states that thirty thousand children die every year in the country from malnutrition describing the conflict as a living hell saudi arabia which has been leading the deadly campaign against rebels since twenty fifteen so they're trying to reduce civilian deaths kingdom's foreign ministry even posts on twitter what they stand for the children of yemen but the message has backfired to sleep reports. just so you know children in yemen
5:12 pm
some of whom have never seen peace in their life are not alone says who saudi diplomats on twitter but something seems to be wrong with that photo that tweet probably because the reality for most children there looks more like this. or this there is more let's go back to what was under the photo it says your children are children is this really how you treat your children. these were the pictures now to some of the things that have been said by the u.n.
5:13 pm
children's fund experts in yemen every ten minutes a child dies from a disease that can easily be prevented yemen is one of their worst places to be as china is right now because he's the or the number of children minorities two million and the number of two that and don't have access want the same with access to. the u.n. says since march twenty fifth being saudi led coalition air strikes have killed around thirteen hundred yemeni children and injured roughly the same number as unlikely as it sounds saudi arabia is actually yemen's biggest humanitarian daughter with hundreds of millions of dollars worth of aid this year alone just like an abusive partner who picks up the medical bills no wonder folks online didn't really by the way saudi diplomats are standing with yemen are these the
5:14 pm
children you plan to drop bombs on next should that not read we stand on the yemen just imagine the tweet of the nazi foreign ministry on september nineteenth thirty nine saying we stand with poland that's crazy. there may be people within saudi arabia who certainly feel for the plight of yemenis at the moment and the best way that could be shown in real terms rather than with pastas is if the bombing campaign on yemeni families stopped if we saw that then i would find it much easier to believe that there is sincere concern for the safety and lives of women and children there is no question that there's significant contributions to the humanitarian plan made by saudi arabia and the u.a.e. this year have been well received by the humanitarian community without that money we wouldn't have been able to pull it together with all the funds from other countries and reach people with eight however this is not
5:15 pm
a you break it you buy it sort of arrangement that money doesn't come close to absolving the saudi led coalition all of the responsibility for the number of deaths being caused the illness and the long term damage being done to yemen as a country. we look at the deadly wildfires devastating california and the perils of being able to edit any. of this break.
5:16 pm
it's been seventy years since the united nations adopted the universal declaration on human rights but in many places it remains a declaration and not a reality how to bridge the divide between. reaching. back to the program massive wildfires in california have claimed the lives of at
5:17 pm
least eleven people and brother the most devastating in the u.s. state's history more than two hundred fifty thousand people have been forced to flee their homes as the fast moving blaze rages through the area reports say that the fire has destroyed an entire city and burned thousands of houses to the ground fire fighters are working around the clock to contain a wildfires but say they're concerned that intense winds and low humidity could feel them. the syrian army says it has rescued over a dozen hostages from islamic state during a military operation near the city of palmira the captives had been held for over three months but have returned home. leake. you make. it easy least. six.
5:18 pm
other terror groups are also present in the war torn country and some of them even have access to foreign funding a recent report has revealed that u.s. aid money is actually lining the terrorists' own pockets were gassed here picks up the story. american taxpayer money cash that is almost wholly in the u.s. mindset inviolable money but has seen politicians jailed for the slightest misuse is ending up in the hands of al qaeda in syria now that's a sick twisted if anything a new report has found that millions millions of dollars in aid to syria has been funneled to terrorists since late twenty seventeen u.s. agency for international development office of the inspector general investigation have uncovered numerous instances of possible or confirmed diversions to armed
5:19 pm
groups in government in northwestern syria including time of year al sharm a designated foreign terrorist organization. h.t.s. nusra front they have many names in short as wing in syria facts of the matter that they were benefiting from u.s. taxpayer money is no surprise everyone n.g.o.s aid organizations civilians traveling through northern syria have to pay to pass checkpoints beat and money in goods this is been a fact for years it's business one of the terrorists' main sources of funding worst
5:20 pm
of all it is assumed that these jihad ists have been able to infiltrate put their people in n.g.o.s humanitarian organizations from which they siphon money and aid to further their malign cause one investigation found that in n.g.o.s employees knowingly diverted thousands of u.s. aid funded food care. it's worth millions of dollars to eligible beneficiaries including terry are all sham fighters the reported self is light on names and numbers perhaps for political reasons the fallout here could seriously damage and geo operations all we know is that millions of dollars in cash and aid have been funneled to al qaeda in syria and that's just what they've admitted found funding has now been terminated but it's very interesting in this report is that the usaid watchdog does not name the n.g.'s now of course one of those primary n.g.o.s will
5:21 pm
be the white house probably one of the most. important and i can i and these are n.p.r. and he's working on the ground in syria basically providing the postman counter in the corporation of the regime change current policy surely the year i should first of all be left on economic sanctions and it should be if it's necessary be cooperating with the syrian government to provide aid to the areas where it's most needed because i don't expect this to happen it regardless it's a sick and sad joke on the american taxpayer trillions of their hard earned money spent on the war on terror rigidly on defeating al qaeda and all the while they've been paying to feed and finance those very same jihad. now a spy saga is unfolding on the streets of britain at least according to one think tank that says every second russian is working as surveillance operatives policy on
5:22 pm
her own investigative mission for the show in case you missed it. the british capital is teaming with. or as the neo conservative think tank the henry jackson society calls them russian. to. the. explosive putin sees and hears it all report estimates it may could be as many as seventy five thousand so-called informants routinely helping. the says rise by spies by spies by of course this tour de force which is based on anonymous sources taking wild guesses isn't aimed at creating cheap headlines or fear mongering at all it simply aims to make clear that every other russian is probably a spy they could also be masquerading as normal people like us.
5:23 pm
little people to. are you a russian spy it's like. you do i look like yeah and they're going to reveal the real to me through really through the russian marketing sites using very nice russian shot you know the russians for years so using the russian spies are in there are you. know everywhere now. all round up of the news for now if you want to have a closer look at any of our stories check out our website that's often dot com showing thomas will take over the top of the first it's going into. stock buybacks are basically corbridge you know the circling of money totally in a way that doesn't reflect the business they're not in the business of except for
5:24 pm
the business of fraud and this is rampant throughout the entire s. and p. five hundred it was the day of reckoning comes as it seems to be happening now you could see it air drop of the market down forty or fifty percent you know in a week and people like oh my god what happened well it's going to linger for years because they're engaged in massive open the telephone. it's hard to imagine after the war a nazi don't it was still active rich in the nineteen seventies cretonne had as the chair of its code a man convicted of mass murder and slavery was a german company growing untold develops a little mind a drug that was promoted as completely safe even during bring them to you it turned out to have terrible side effects what has happened to my baby is anything but. you know she said she's just got choked up minutes of it a month victims i have to this day received no compensation they never apologized
5:25 pm
for the suffering that not only won't the money i want the revenge. but hope to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or something. i want. you to go on to the pros this is what i'm up for three of the more people. i'm interested always in the warnings about how.
5:26 pm
time after times are we going underground on the birthday of the man who had it for millions of the repeated thirty five million death toll in india and created the anti-catholic black and tans death squads in ireland winston churchill coming up on the show a victory for abstention ism with a majority of americans not voting at the u.s. midterms we go to georgia to measure the decline of u.s. democracy with the green party's twenty sixteen vice presidential candidate a job and will tomorrow's meetings between leaders of china russia and india in singapore signaled the beginning of the end of major nation's power we speak to a u.k. government in vines or on china plus from the headlines the president who's planning for war while parading face the poet who sees no locals in being a laureates all this and more coming up in today's going underground for us to raise i'm a stands in silence today to commemorate british wars of the royal albert hall i
5:27 pm
mean thousands of u.k. veterans homeless and a noticeable lack of publicized that the german revolution ended world war one in the real world vladimir putin prepares to meet donald trump tomorrow in paris before a big a meeting of the g. twenty this is the week when president mccraw unveiled plans for a real e.u. omi. by the. president he couldn't afford to. i'm innocent most of the security going to respect you know me want to love well we know of the four different the third is on the panel so more that it is unique so the e.u. is creating an independent army on the hundredth anniversary of a war to end all wars that killed or wounded more than forty million what could go wrong and why was the politician who is arguably had more influence on britain's future than any other nigel farage laughed at by u.k. media and join claude young when he said this three years ago mr young said we must convey to russia that we are serious who do you think you are kidding mr young
5:28 pm
we do don't want any part of an e.u. army and i doubt the rest of the peoples of europe do either for. the left of arguably being much more keen on improving trade ties with the former colonial developing world than creating armies in nations that sparked not one but two world wars for those like tony benn bricks it was always about democracy i think that the power to govern ourselves must remain with the british people co-operate worldwide trade will join the united nations be members of the international community but the umbilical cord that links the lawmakers with the people and you destroy the stability of this country and well stability will be a subject in singapore tomorrow when leaders from russia the us and you're in china convene to discuss the future of the planet that's followed by apec summit in papua new guinea again the usa russia and china will be present we'll get the perspective
5:29 pm
of a u.k. government advisor on china later in the show but before that to the midterms which british media arguably suggests demonstrate donald trump's decline even though the g.o.p. won seats in the senate joining me now via skype from atlanta georgia is the green party twenty sixteen presidential candidate joe miller. thanks for coming back on record breaking turnout but still more people didn't vote than voted what is the point of u.s. elections. if it is to determine every two or four years what set of oppressors will be putting in office and i hate to sound like that but in essence because of the very real limitations of us democracy that make it very difficult for any political challenge to take place beyond the two parties then people are basically stuck with having to participate either supporting one major ruling class party or another and so those of us who represent third forces like the green party are
5:30 pm
basically marginalized and the consequence is that many people have concluded that the dems so-called democratic process in the us is irrelevant and therefore they vote by not voting because the d.n.c. often says it's not their fault it's either the russians facebook or perhaps more believably widespread reporting of voter suppression you're a cause in georgia why is it that us elections have these irregularities and accusations it doesn't happen in venezuela or iran and it doesn't and what we have in the us is a eight a decision may primarily by the republicans to engage in voter suppression because they believe i think quite correctly that any expanded. our participation levels among the working class will be of those who are probably .
