chancellor i'm going to machall sensor might see the party will choose a new leader in april outgoing chief on the great calm kadam about resigned this month over a scandal involving the party's apparent cold peroration on the far right after a disastrous that regional election results over the weekend have added to the crisis within the party. fresh clashes the broken i mean to captain dally over controversial citizenship introduced in december india has seen weeks of often violent protests or the new law which critics say discriminates against muslims. well not on rasta came as u.s. president donald trump began a 2 day visit to india proceedings began with a massive rally at the newly built metairie cricket stadium he was welcomed by indian prime minister narendra modi in mad about the biggest city in modi's home state but leaders hope to strengthen the ties between 2 of the world's largest democracies. handshakes swapped for hugs as india turned on the collar for
4:12 pm
donald trump's 1st visit to the country. the world when 1st day had a lively trio of photo opportunities for a u.s. president in a reelection year 1st to a residence where mahatma gandhi used to live trying to use the guestbook to call modi his great friend. the motorcade then waved through streets packed with enthusiastic supporters straining to get a glimpse at the 2 leaders of the world to biggest cricket stadium then played host for a massive rally titled at nama state trump in front of a 100000 people. in india we're clearly agents of the item pneumonia at. just under 5 don't see. it dear me your pont of good data flowed out of their lives and. it could be the biggest rally of the us president's korea and he had a little trouble with some of the names as the great religious teachers swami
4:13 pm
vivere come or no one said the 6 but he says recent trade disputes could be coming to an end we are in the early stages of discussion for an incredible trade agreement to reduce barriers of investment between the united states and india and i am optimistic that working together the prime minister and i could reach a fantastic deal despite that optimism any breakthroughs on trade talks will be unlikely as bud sites have ramped up tariffs in the last year but leaving the stadium to finish the day at one of the wonders of the world the taj mahal. on tuesday the leaders will sharpen their focus beginning renew trade talks in delhi. let's go straight to sonia folly in delhi who's been following president trump's 1st day in india welcome sonia so india pulled out all the stops today why.
4:14 pm
that's right the indian government really put up this lavish spectacle of grand reception for donald trump and this event is really being compared to a similar event called how the mood which was held for prime the some of the lost in houston texas in some ways this is seen as the rest procol gesture but i think this goes beyond that we have to remember the trump president trump is an election year and this is a good start is also partly an effort to kind of would the indian american vote a good drive has a big diaspora in the u.s. they tend to be a wealthy influential business community and they tend to be quite pro probably don't many of them made large donations and supported them in this last presidential campaign so i think in some ways this is also an effort by trying to galvanize support among among this base and i think the optics of this spectacle today are also important for prime minister moody that a welcome diversion for him from kind of domestic problems at home where he's
4:15 pm
facing large scale protests often violent protests as well as international condemnation over a very controversial citizenship law which many say discriminates against muslims and threatens to undermine the country's 2nd the traditions ok so. presidents are trying to get action perhaps i have to say that president tom does enjoy fairly high popularity rating surveys show that you know he's he has high approval ratings here people think he's a strong leader he's tough on terrorism since pro-business is a friend of movies but when it comes to ordinary people on the ground it depends on who you speak to and i think look at the city of about with that massive rally was held we have to remember that song supporters protested outside the courtroom about tonight is convicted prosecutors would find it easier to target journalists when you sources inside the u.s. government. daily is an independent socialist irish member of the european parliament she's met julia so much and his campaign against is absolution
4:16 pm
a well to be doubly doesn't serve justice for julian assange has to face is accusing court. well absolutely not i mean it's been widely believed that this hearing should now. go ahead and all we have here is very much how this prosecution extradition proceedings are very much it's never meant to be for issues like in essence his extradition is to the u.s. in order to answer cherishes very cost point information which wants to monstrously in the public insurance information and bad joke war crimes states government in afghanistan and in iraq actually in syria that was also published by. arrogant and the new york times so these are normal journalistic practices for someone to face an extradition and answer charges on the espionage act which has
4:17 pm
never been used before really has. chilling effect our journalists everywhere if you know since get away with it it's not to my intelligence that the person and patients aren't. was just sort of clear is it your contention that julia assad should face no punishment or just that he should not be actually died to the united states. well the so-called crimes are he is alleged to be responsible for our public services as far as i'm concerned because it's being charged in essence is the material that was published in the dealings that we do need some students on chapman chelsea manager and we saw in the case today the prosecution and glowing to its concerns now the prosecution doesn't have to prove and they just have to make assertions and what we've heard this morning from their side was very much all of the allegations which are heard in the case against chancing money
4:18 pm
including many claims which were really no team to be held in her case and they were a piece of unsporting to the makes against all free spirits charges so no of course it's not much stuff many have already been disproved so i didn't quite get a yes or no answer so my question about whether or not he should face punishment that is that but should someone who should people who have some government computers and steal data be punished. well julian assange students do that as far as julian assange was more quite a whistleblower in the u.s. to forces in this case chancery mountain and then polish that information which was subsequently. the courage of the new york times and so it information which was demonstrably in the public insurance. us interference in other government countries in the torture in afghanistan and iraq the guantanamo bay detainees who know how to
4:19 pm
try it i don't consider not to be a criminal offense not hold it services journalism so it's never miss my face that potential. time in jail for not would be reprehensible i thank you for joining us claire de mint m.e.p.a. thank. a 75000000000 international film festival is in full swing one film not competing for the golden bet is hillary a us documentary about the life of the former 1st lady take a look at a clip from super tuesday 2060 when hillary clinton was on a roll back. there.
4:20 pm
and i know. well they don't do is have a humphrey on scott's a rock for i have been to see that documentary welcome chops how does hillary come out of this. yeah. it's interesting because of course hillary clinton is one of the most divisive political figures in the united states there's a lot of people who love our and there's also a lot of people who really hater and both of these groups will find a lot. a lot of ammunition in this documentary series i mean we see hillary as credibly intelligent and incredibly inspirational in a lot of the rallies a particular about period in 2016 when she succeeded in becoming the 1st u.s. president a female president but there's also plenty of scenes that show her. quite arrogant maybe out of touch with certain voters and so i think anyone who goes into this expecting to have their mind changed about hillary clinton probably won't get
4:21 pm
anything out of this documentary series but it definitely is a really in-depth look at one of the most fascinating political figures of our time male or female i think it's fair to say that she probably doesn't hate it because we do know that she's coming to the bat in international film festival for the screening shows in every speech often it's in a press conference as well tamara now harry clinton once famously said that she wanted the epitaph of had to be that she wasn't or is bad as people said so perhaps this documentary series is a bit of a reputation representation of that sentiment ok so the bowling alley of course is a competition so let's talk about a couple of the competition films that are today. all right well we've just had the print yeah all of the french film if i say eco delete history you know this is a piece of social commentary it's a comedy about the risks of social media to some very funny effect it's about 3 friends living in the prevent chill french suburbs they get in all sorts of trouble
4:22 pm
with that online lives now they met as yet to best protest on a roundabout and in that kind of spirit of protest and revolution i think then decide to take on the big data companies it set me a very funny film as much as it's a piece of social commentary but another film today i mean is it a film with dramatic one from from from from from french comedy to german drama. there's a film called little sister which stars 2 of germany's biggest theater and film stars lives i think her and nina hoss and in this film they play brother and sister both in the theater world as the actors are in real life and lives on the earth the brother is sick with cancer and his sister gives up her writing career to essentially take care of him this could be very interesting film because these are 2 amazing actors and we rarely see them together in such an intimate type of movie
4:23 pm
but it is also very much set in the german theatrical world if you know anything about german theater you know it's a very choir taste so very interested to see how the audience reacts to this one so what what else are people talking about so that about it only. well. always likes to have very political themes within its composition lineup and one of the film that couldn't be more topical is the assistant which is a film based entire very specifically on me to move in and on the weinstein case and given that harvey weinstein is at the moment facing a jury in new york that will decide the next couple of days probably whether or not to send to jail i think a film like this will really have a huge resonance here at the belin. arthur scott ross for helena humphrey down there thank you this is d.w. news these are our top stories police in germany cervical has been driven into a crowd of revelers celebrating carnival in the central town of false mass and at
4:24 pm
