this is do we do is live from berlin the maximum pressure and a message of defiance from iran with the u.s. toughest sanctions yet coming into force the country's president says tehran will bypass the measures and calls on the country to resist but well what will be the fallout for ordinary iranians were in tehran also coming up everything is still up for grabs as campaigning ahead of the u.s. midterm elections endurance is final hours many say the stakes have never been higher. than. you what americans think or communicable
4:01 pm
you know sweeps the board at the m.t.v. europe music awards but this year's event is not only about entertainment with veteran singer janet jackson talks taking to the stage to talk about her difficult past. one of those when. we were. little heart thank you so much for your company everyone iranians are bracing themselves today after the trumpet ministration to reimpose sanctions on their country the iranian foreign minister zarif says the reimposition of u.s. sanctions on his country the five world opinion and is likely to backfire he accused the u.s. of being a bully saying the sanctions targeted ordinary people the u.s. reintroduced the measures today after pulling out of the iran nuclear deal back in
4:02 pm
may the e.u. says it regrets the reintroduction of the measures will affect all areas of the iranian economy including the oil and financial sectors. iranian markets like this are where economic reality rubs up against real lives the mere threat of sanctions has seen food prices here double in just a year shuttered store fronts speak to the hardship. is directed closer to home. because these disasters are inflicted on the people by our government and the thousand trumps can't do anything to us. the effects are felt beyond the bazaar with iran's oil and finance sectors major international companies are withdrawing from tehran at this advertisement business they have had to sack several stuff. that's really heartbreaking it's
4:03 pm
heartbreaking for the people that we talk to to say that look i'm so sorry there is no business and therefore if there's no business i cannot give you a job they've studied they're excited about what they want to do in the future. no hope is being taken away from them the man behind the sanctions u.s. president donald trump hopes they will maximize pressure on iran iran sanctions are very strong the strongest sanctions result for a vote. we'll see what happens with iran but they're not doing very well i can tell you iran is not doing very well but to run shows little sign of bending a defiant president hassan rouhani pledge to ignore the sanctions while they're showing this is an economic war we're standing up to a billing enemy yes that he said on hussein was in front of us today it is trump there is no difference. and talking tough and testing their military hardware to.
4:04 pm
these drills designed to send a message here ran ramping up the rhetoric in a bed to stop economic hardship from turning into anti regime sentiment. and the sanctions cut deep let's find out just how they are affecting the people in iraq europe because it is a correspondent with german public broadcasters idiot and he joins us now from the iranian capital of tehran your before you set the scene for us on how this latest round of u.s. sanctions are affecting the local economy what are these punitive measures designed to do. you know officially the u.s. government denies that aiming for a regime change in iran although they would definitely appreciate it so the iranian leadership is convinced that this is the actual driving force behind the sanctions and my impression is that if the u.s.
4:05 pm
expect the sanctions to bring the people to the streets i don't think that this is going to happen the opposite is actually what you can see like in many cases when there is pressure being put on an even disputed government that people unite behind this government so but if the idea is to bring iran back to the negotiating table and even include their ballistic missile program into these talks i think that this is much more likely to happen than any regime change in iran oh right now let's talk about the people of iran because this is bad news for them mind how ronnie is a day to day lives are affected. well i think you know the people as strongly affected by the sanctions and even they could see a dettori acting in qana me long before actually the us pulled out of it and i think that there's still a strong support for the government amongst the religious part of the population in iran but we travel to iran for the last couple of days we talked to many people and
4:06 pm
the vast majority told us that they're not satisfied with the performance of the rouhani government they blame their government for mismanagement and for corruption there were people who even told us that if they had the chance to they would like to leave the country in order to give their kids a brighter future so people are really tired of fighting for survival they expect their government to act and if it means that you know the government gets back to the table and negotiate i think the people would be fine with it in order to have the sanctions lifted and for the country to prosper economically but you're the iranian leadership is showing no signs of wanting to do that they're very very defiant. well the iranian government as rouhani said today i mean they will try to to still sell their oil in order to get revenues i mean they will be allowed to do so because the u.s.
4:07 pm
government granted waivers to eight countries among them china india south korea or turkey but the iranian government is also seeking for other measures to sell their oil there are reports of big stores in tankers at the coast in the persian gulf and there's also reports of rain investor was just switched off they raid in order to not being not being tracked so they could sell their oil somewhere else the u.s. established a task force trying to prevent the iranian government from doing so so i think what we're going to see within the next couple of weeks is kind of a hide and seek game between washington and tehran all right so the sanctions may not live up to the hype we'll have to wait and see meanwhile reporting from tehran city of correspondence in your past i thank you. the u.s. is opposed to the u.s. a decision to reimpose sanctions on iran as our brussels correspondent teri schultz so told us earlier europe is actively trying to bypass these sanctions the european
4:08 pm
union says it's setting up this so-called special purpose vehicle which would allow payments to go in and out of iran. and bypassing u.s. sanctions that's how how it's invision and the e.u. maintains that this is going to happen although it's not operational today but what we have seen is an exodus of european companies and some very big german companies among them deciding that simply their bottom line cannot support being in a confrontation with washington and that whatever losses they have to take by cutting contracts in iran and and possibly annoying brussels is going to be worth it teri schultz reporting there on the e.u. reaction to the latest sanctions on iran and the united states and meanwhile democrats and republicans are making their final appeals to voters ahead of the midterm elections which take place tomorrow cheers days poll is widely seen as a referendum on donald trump's administration widespread dissatisfaction over the

trump presidency has fueled a surge and women and minority candidates standing for election across the u.s. and now in a deeply conservative texas one woman is hoping to channel that discontent into an election victory and a seat in the house of representatives or any every weekend ana maria ramos campaigns door to door in dallas texas why because she wants to convince undecided voters to go to the polls her goal is to be elected to the texas house of representatives. annamaria is female latina and a democrat not an easy combination in conservative texas. i heard somebody who talked about slavery slavery was ok those are hard conversations to have and they can respect the individual they're getting in their time and you just say thank you we'll agree to disagree and then you move on. ana marie is campaign headquarters is her own living room when trump was elected president she felt like she had to do
