how raman is there for us and as many demonstrators believe india's constitution is under threat. thousands of people have gathered a cross in india to protest the city's many here in new delhi many have gathered not just here. but that makes you know way to the main area where they expect to hear political leaders and civil society denounce the b j p led government signed into law. the act as many see is discriminatory on many levels whether it be culturally socially on religious grounds and for that reason civil society and the opposition led in this particular case by the all india congress all suggesting to the public at large that if you do not agree with the secular india if you agree with a secular india then you have to come out onto the streets because our constitution is under threat that's the message that the opposition are trying to get out and
11:09 am

president donald trump railed against the democrats pushed to impeach him in congress for his dealings with ukraine's president it's a witch hunt it's a sham it's a hoax nothing was done wrong 0 was done wrong it's a scam it's something that shouldn't be allowed and it's a very bad thing for a country and you are trivializing impeachment and i tell you what someday there will be a democrat president and there will be a republican house and i suspect they're going to remember that objection the committee is a journey. but democrats argue trumpet be used as presidential powers for political gain the house judiciary committee voted to approve 2 articles of impeachment against president trump the vote along party lines allege trump withheld military aid in order to pressure ukraine to dig up dirt on a political rival former vice president joe biden trumps also accused of

11:12 am
says has been politically biased against him even as the republican leader mitch mcconnell is pushing for a swift trial in the senate i think they're giving the signal that this is really just a show trial that senator mcconnell knows where the votes are and knows how this is going to come out and he wants to have a very short proceeding so that they can move past this quickly but for in a tory asli thinskinned president the personal humiliation of a looming impeachment in the house of representatives appears to have only intensified donald trump's desire to fight back in the u.s. senate in an attempt to clear his name can really help get al-jazeera the white house. in the news ahead. united nations accuses chile of using excessive force but some anti-government protesters killed and others suffering severe i.e. injury. and maybe an end inside china signed

11:14 am

11:15 am
separate the spin from the facts you western media jumps on stories we don't taking down the misinformation from the journalism it's about telling the stories of those human beings on the ground with the listening post on al-jazeera. with al-jazeera and these are the headlines this hour a verdict is expected soon in the corruption trial against saddam's former leader omar al bashir he was overthrown in april after months of demonstrations soldiers then found suitcases in his home with currency worth more than $130000000.00 inside saturday's verdict will be on corruption charges illegal possession of foreign

currency and illicit. the taliban is claiming responsibility for an attack in afghanistan the defense ministry says 9 soldiers were killed on friday and they cut about district of gus name it was one of many attacks in the province. and india's main opposition congress party is organizing a rally against the government over a controversial new citizenship all that excludes muslims the adoption of the bill has led to protests across the country creates a path to citizenship for 6 minority religious groups from neighboring countries but muslims are not on the list. just days before the u.s. china trade war was about to intensify in the 2 economic giants of struck an interim deal a trumpet ministration has called off a new round of tariffs that was due to start. on sunday and will instead reduce levees in return china's agreed to buy more american farm products and to ease rules on u.s. companies accessing its markets let's go to a city in eastern china a manufacturing hub there and katrina you is there for us it's not
11:17 am
a deal to end all deals katrina but it's a start. that's right it's definitely a start and we're here in erie city and if china is considered the factory of the world then it would be the shop front of the world hundreds of thousands of all of the world come to this sprawling commodities market to make orders for objects and other goods to sell back home in their home countries and many of those who come every year from the u.s. so this region the people who work 8 in this mall and generally in the south east in manufacturing belt of china these are these people who are among the worst affected by the trade war by the tariffs which have been imposed since the trade war began so definitely those what we hear today of breathing a big sigh of relief from this news particularly the wrist you are working with products that might have been given new taxes from the top administration this
11:18 am
weekend but because of this deal those taxes have been called off and among those are the people who are selling christmas decorations to homes and households and companies all over the world. a christmas wonderland in southeast china bias from all over the wound come to this market city for the festive season decorations. but this year it's not married bright vendors here say the trade with the united states is bad for business. business is noise good as it used to be there are more and more sellers and fewer and fewer buyers i can barely make a living. but christmas has arrived early for the suppliers with chinese and u.s. negotiators announcing they will sign what's called a phase one deal soon delayed extra tariffs on $156000000000.00 worth of chinese products including christmas trees tinsel and
11:19 am
a range of other goods however i don't want any agreement is only a temporary truce not an end to the trade was. they might be able to reach a mild as small trade deal but in terms of the stuff both sides really want the u.s. really want china to get rid of in this drug policy odd to create a leveling playground for foreign companies this is not going to happen anytime soon to many chinese manufacturers expected agreement is likely to be too little too light extra duties imposed earlier this year some as high as 25 percent have already forced many factories to scale down production and fire stuff these workers have been on had since the spring will be gathered and with good reason the bicycle industry is one of the worst affected by an increase in tyrants and distracted the lies on i'm never going to buy it to buy. later goods supplied bicycles to major u.s. retailers including wal-mart and says
11:20 am
a rise in tires has caused sales to drop by about 20 percent we lost soul our fears for this person worst still what we want to see how the person was going to do this year because this is the 1st year christmas was the for the purpose of. in order to keep going during difficult times this bicycle make it is relocating some production to cambodia and the asia back in many suppliers have already started moving away from the u.s. towards new markets in the middle east and africa. winter lasts a few months the chinese export is expected today relations between beijing and washington to remain to 90 christmases to come so we've seen some bright news off the what has been months of bad news months of failed negotiations and more tariffs of this is definitely a bright spot but nobody here is getting over excited i think people understand
11:21 am
that his just means that the talks are going to keep on going and there is a chance they could get better but many people who have already made other plans with time to explore the markets and those who are indeed even thinking of moving overseas they're still going full steam ahead with those plans now looking ahead to the future people are still quite confused it's still uncertain this deal has not been signed quite yet we are to have any details exactly which products like to have some tariff relief because of this and because of that these tells a very very much in a sobering sobering mindset they know that this is a good thing maybe though they know what to expect for the next few weeks but going forward the different name bracing for this economic conflict of this tension between the u.s. and china to continue we have to remember this is one just one phase just one deal maybe still have so many other issues to look at look at including the issues that spot to this trade war in the 1st place issues such as industrial subsidies issues
11:22 am
such as the technology war and people in china are very much aware that whether or not china and the u.s. can agree on those really really big sticking points if that is indeed a solution we may not see this for many many more years to come potentially katrina you thank you for that so as katrina alludes to the people saying this deal really falls well short of what donald trump wanted when the dispute began 2 years ago alan fisher has more from washington d.c. explaining why the president's administration still sees this there was a victory. the white house says that this is a significant and important agreement donald trump himself says it's a phenomenal deal they've been talking about this for a very long time you remember it was back at the beginning of last year that donald trump said that trade wars are good and easy too when there have been discussions which came almost came to a deal but then fell away now the united states says it has a 9 chapter 1st stage agreement with the chinese that covers important issues such
11:23 am
as tech transfer intellectual property theft opening up china's financial income see markets to outsiders namely the united states and also the sale of agricultural products donald trump sees that as very important farmers have struggled a lot because of the talents that were imports but he sees the farming community of the center of the united states as very much his base his heartland and so as we approach an election year he is very keen to address their concerns the most important thing this deal deals with is the targets that were due to be imposed on sunday they know essentially gore way but there are still tat of on chinese goods coming into the united states about 25 percent on $250000000000.00 worth of goods and 7.5 percent or $120000000000.00 worth of goods those type of will start to
