i think that when we're dealing with arms that no personal financial dealings should have anything to do the decision and really not even the finances of the country and i think selling arms should have to deal solely with our national security not jobs not money nothing and i really think that the war in yemen that we have no vital national security interest and not only that i think our involvement in this terrible war is one of the things that engendered more terrorism as more people die from starvation as people pick up bomb fragments went to school buses killed and on the bomb fragment it says made in america it creates more terrorism so i think it's actually a risk to our national security to be involved with the saudis and we should not be aiding and abetting their bombing of civilian areas rand paul speaking to you and besides meet the press that well after weeks of violent antigovernment protests the french president is due to address the nation on monday and then all will also protest groups the so-called yellow vests demonstrations were initially over fuel
tax hikes but now they've become an anti government mass movement calling them to resign well the french foreign minister has told the u.s. president to stay out of french politics have to donald trump blamed the violent protests on the powers climate agreement and tone i say this to donald trump and the french president said it to we do not take domestic american politics into account leave our nation be. well his doublet came from paris all the fallout from those protests. with all of the evidence of violence in paris cleared up now the question many people in france opposing is what can president mccone do to show that he is addressing the concerns of the yellow vest protesters but also of wider society a question for him is is there a concession that is the right answer that will placate people here because the violence the evidence of violence is gone but the mess the political mess certainly lingers on that point on monday at the summer in s n l the building behind me the
french parliament organized political opposition to mr merkel will be manifest in the form of a motion of no confidence in his government being put to the summer innocent by the opposition by the left wing opposition there's little chance that will get passed when the vote is held on wednesday because of the absolute majority of which to make holes government of his party that i can recall march that the republic on the move the problem for him is that the newspaper headlines this weekend have been calling leak of the republic in flames he has to deal with that but his opinion poll ratings are very low at twenty four percent so for him when he speaks to the nation when he speaks to the unions this week he has to address the concerns that have been expressed not just on the streets but also in wider society now the french finance minister says the protests have been catastrophic for the economy but it's with has been speaking to some of the workers affect it. they're the only
businesses that have seen profits go up because of the yellow vest protests along with more than seventy percent of french people the owner of this window fitting company is sympathetic to the protesters motives to citizenship their anger is legitimate it would be nice if mr michael could enable employers to give bonuses free of tax to their employees so that everyone is better off at the end of the month but i also understand the government's position saying besiege it's not easy to deal with to find solutions would you go there was this restaurant in central paris stayed open on a saturday but takings were down ninety percent. would be really bad of the situation persisted and got worse however it is nothing compared to the wave of terror attacks from three years ago when tourists asserted paris yesterday there were a few tourists but it will be a lot of considerations no matter what hotels will be the most impacted but restaurants like mine will suffer as well because in fact they're working. with the
power turned off in the city of light in the shops boarded up the cost of the economy is estimated to have been at least one and a half billion dollars for the protesters who took the place of christmas shoppers in central paris have succeeded in forcing the government of president emanuel to agree to their main demand and abandon a hike in fuel taxes we must now urgently work together to find a path to dialogue to provide answers to all of those french people overwhelmed by the level of taxes and even through their work and can manage to get by but this can only be done in peace in dialogue and certainly not with violence. scrapping the tax rises blows a five billion dollars hole in the government's budget but the protesters want tax cuts they want better pensions benefits and they want a higher minimum wage demands president is going to find difficult to meet and there's little money to pay for. bernard smith al-jazeera house. still more ahead
