president trump told a crowd of more than $100000.00 indians inside a packed cricket stadium that america was india and will always be faithful to india now these are grand and sweeping statements that the world has come to expect from donald trump but they were also sincere and his genuine any that we have heard from the u.s. president and that has everything to do with the host india's prime minister narendra modi he and donald trump are kindred spirits if you will sons of a site guy dominated by national interests 1st and foremost followed by trade followed by more trade as political leaders they speak the same language one that always targets their base and one that is criticized for excluding everyone else we have this report tonight on the start of trump's 2 day visit to india. handshakes swapped for hugs as india turned on the collar for donald trump's 1st visit to the
country. the world when thursday 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 he's great friend. the motorcade then waved through streets packed with enthusiastic supporters straining to get a glimpse at the 2 leaders. the world to biggest cricket study and then played host for a massive rally at nama state trump in front of a 100000 people. in india you wouldn't see any legions of the item pneumonia. just under 500 feet. it d.d. your pond of good data and blew it out of their lives. it could be the biggest rally of the us president's korea and he had a little trouble with some of the nines as the great religious teachers swami
vivekanand a common 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 would be unlikely has but sides 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 renewed trade talks in delhi . for more on where this relationship is headed here on earth and beyond i'm joined tonight by broth because he is
a distinguished senior fellow at the observer research foundation that's a leading indian sink tank he is also an author his latest book final frontier india and space security lays out how india has become a major player in space weaponization roth joins me tonight via skype from washington d.c. broth it's good to have you on the day before we talk about out of space let's talk about this love fest that we saw today between the prime minister and the president . how do you read it how did it strike you these scenes with modi and draw well i think they've they've they've found a sweet spot for each other i think both their export campaign campaigners for their own party and for themselves you know the french gave donald trump the best all day parade the japanese made to meet the emperor and the indians were wondering what can they offer him something different that will ruin charming and they
realized that i can rise and realized its weaknesses for rallies and crowds and the chatting up crowds and i think that's exactly what the what the indians gave that this was that her solicited you stand in september and you know modi knows this is his home ground and he can play very well and subsides and the quality is size of the audience and that's what and that's exactly what he gave them and i you know i think that's where they resonate devoid of any substance i don't think that much care about the substance of the style in which the executive was great. yeah and i think i'm trump was visibly impressed by the crowd that he sold there today let's talk about outer space the united states it has started a new military branch scald space force and at the same time. as that you write in your book that india is becoming a major player in the weaponization of outer space are these 2 complimentary developments in your opinion are we talking about 2 allies in the skies and an
elder space but this is big churning for a while i think there are there are a couple of and very you know there was one statement where the prime minister said this is no longer a usual partnership and this is an unusual a very close relationship with the united states if i were to read between the lines on a play where it willingly speculate that statement is the big big word the big the big big out of my statement is china out there and china has a very impressive space program on the military in the space weaponization front the new u.s. partnership in terms of space military space assets has been churning for a while for the last 15 years and india's impressive assets that can contribute to its magic time domain awareness for the south china sea and in the indian ocean where the u.s. company just relatively weak and the indians could offer them some assets out there i think this has been going on for a while this is just going to come out more in the open this is going to get legitimized and also in terms of space weaponization where you know in the indian
help to it some of these weapons could be. burnished by the u.s. capacity so i think that the you you going to see more of these kind of cooperation in going forward do you see china being really the force that is pushing india and the united states closer together i'm in a relationship that maybe will outlast the personalities of modi and trump in his intensity in closeness. and in many ways i think the relationship will already outlast that d.c. i made a 9098 in 1900 and it was a sanctioned country and 20 years from 1998 if you want to recalibrate the relationship today you are talking about $3000000000.00 a day from steals you and you have never talked about these things and do it because. you know what was fundamentally stumbling to us a good relationship with this that will let us know good deal now whether that you
that commercial benefits or not that's the point question but that's an award that that's was one of the fundamental quantum policy of victories for the united states in getting india into its world and i think you know china china was a significant factor it was not the only factor ok. the polish woman with the observer research foundation joining me tonight from washington ross we appreciate your time and your insights tonight thank you. well still to come hillary as in hillary clinton on the red carpet at the berlin film festival the berlin wall. we'll have a look at a french movie that will make you want to delete all of your online accounts and joking about leaked e-mails well hillary clinton is in town with a new documentary and we've got a film directly inspired by harvey weinstein case that's all coming up tonight on the day. protests today outside a london court where the extradition hearing began for wiki leaks founder julian
assange and the u.s. wants the u.k. to extradite a song he's wanted in the u.s. on espionage charges relating to intelligence we saw today the defense team told the court that u.s. president trump wants to make an example of julian isn't and they say extradition would eventually make it easier for governments around the world to target a journalist who report on leaked information. well if it is extra guarded and convicted in the u.s. he was likely spend the rest of his life in prison how did the man who gave us wiki leaks become one of america's most wanted for leaking we have this report. these are the images that made whistle blowing website wiki leaks a household name. in 2010 it published classified u.s. army material implicating the u.s.
government and possible war crimes i am we it may julian assange a brave defender of the truth to some rules and an enemy of the state to others. more controversy followed over a later mass leak of diplomatic cables and the 2016 publication of leaked e-mails from hillary clinton's presidential campaign. in 2012 speak out on a 7 year stretch holed up at the ecuadorian embassy in london trying to clear his name last week and sought to extradite him on rape charges. sweden dropped the case last year saying too much time had passed but the prosecutor still says the accusation was credible so the un special rapporteur on torture told d.w. they were trumped up charges he said they were designed to ward off potential whistleblowers from quote airing governments dirty laundry. in paris the songes
father was ambivalent about his son's chances under the british justice system. if if it follows the trajectory of the treatment of julian of us 10 years it will be a show trial but. the team of lawyers is so forceful and competent that i'm sure the crown prosecuting authority will see the error of they way. ahead of today's court hearing julian assange has been held in a london mike the men's security jail and supporters fear he could face a lot longer behind bars if extradited to the u.s. he may spend the rest of his life in prison well at issue in the extradition case what exactly is wiki leaks the u.s. government argues that we hear leaks is not a publisher and the u.s. maintains that a song is not a free speech champion but rather just an ordinary criminal u.s.
government attorney james lewis said the massive leaks dumping of classified material have put lives at risk to quote him reporting or journalism is not an excuse for criminal activities or a license to break ordinary criminal law it's what the journalists say about this many are rallying around julian a songe more than 1300 journalists and whistleblowers have signed an open statement of support speak up for a song here is part of the video attached to that whether. this is law is 5 seats in defense of 2 down astonished now at these dangerous procedures. to be a law it is a terrible discovery of justice and as a precedent threatens our lecturers colleagues working around the globe. well that message is one that is championed by claire daley she is an independent socialist irish member of the european parliament she's met julius on jesse's campaign
against his extradition here's what she told the w. news. we have here it's very much how this prosecution extradition proceedings are very much never made to be for issues like climbing in essence his extradition is sauce to the u.s. in order to answer cherishes publish classified information which wants to monstrously in the public insurance information and data to the war crimes states government in afghanistan and in iraq actually in syria it was also. arrogant and the new york times and i was so these are normal journalists to practice for someone to face an extradition items answer charges on earth the espionage act which had never been even before we had. our journalists everywhere if you know since get away with it is not to my intelligence the person
and patients aren't. claire daly there and is joining us on his hearing progresses will follow every important step right here on the day. well it has been the most anticipated court verdict to be handed down since the beginning of the me too movement today a jury in new york found former hollywood producer harvey weinstein guilty of 2 counts of sexual misconduct weinstein was convicted of 3rd degree rape as well as committing a criminal sexual act he was acquitted of the most serious charges which carry all the magic life sentences after the verdict weinstein was handcuffed and sent to jail where he'll await his sentencing next month weinstein was always denied any wrongdoing always maintaining that any sexual acts had been consensual. after the verdict prosecutors praised the women who came forward and testified against the man who was once the most powerful movie producer in hollywood. weinstein with.
his resources his attorneys his publicist and his spies did everything he could to silence the survivors but they refused to be silent. they spoke from their hearts and they were heard from the very very beginning until the very very end the verdict sheet the verdict sheet is the most complicated verdict sheet anyone has ever seen this is a dollar's opinion is it legal scholars opinion so that's the appellate lawyers think there are plenty of ability for more now we want to put it in a famous journalist k.j. matthews she is in los angeles good evening to you. so we know harvey weinstein was facing 5 charges he's been found guilty on 2 counts talk us through this verdict here help us understand what he's been convicted oh ffs. well you know like you said he's been convicted found guilty of a criminal sexual act in the 1st degree guilty of 3rd degree rape so he was facing 5 charges but was only found guilty of the lesser charges which 2 out of the 5 so
a lot of people here are saying that there just wasn't enough evidence to convict him on all 5 but they wanted to convict him on something they didn't want the the prosecution to walk away empty handed so they convicted him on the lesser charges of course people were hoping that he would be convicted on all of them especially the most serious charges of rape but that just wasn't the case so we know he will at least get at the minimum 5 years if not more but a lot of people are saying is actually a victory for both the prosecution and the defense that being weinstein although he is in jail currently and will probably have to wait in jail until you know his sentence and march 11th you know we can't. overstate the importance of this verdict for the me to movement can we i mean it has been the most anticipated verdict since the me too movement began yet there were the number of sexual assault
cases that were settled by the weinstein company and then there were 13 other women that came forward and said i too have been harassed or sexually assaulted and after that it's never been the same i mean of course we have to meet to movement and then the organization time's up was created but it's hard to believe that it really was just 2 and a happy years ago that all of this began right your favorite journalist k.g. matthew is with the latest tonight on that verdict harvey weinstein found guilty t.j. thank you. well the verdict is being celebrated by many members of the me too movement actress resent our cancer one of weinstein's accusers saying that she's grateful to the brave women who testified and to the jury for seeing through the dirty tactics of the defense and time's up a group that evolved from the b. 2 movement releasing a statement saying in part while it is disappointing that today's outcome does not deliver the truth full justice that women deserve harvey weinstein more now forever be known as a convicted serial predator. of
the 70th berlin international film festival is now in full swing and one film showing elder of competition is hillary a u.s. documentary about the former u.s. 1st lady and the woman herself well she's in berlin today she walked the red carpet for the screening of the documentary now the film looks at hillary clinton's life from her upbringing in chicago all the way to her presidential campaign in 2016 here's a look at that documentary hillary. president. there .
and. yeah i was watching that documentary this afternoon my colleagues helena humphrey and scott ross perot they did the same thing good evening to both of you guys how does hillary clinton how does she come across in your opinion in this documentary. yeah i think i think that we all agree that hillary clinton is one of the most divisive political figures in america there's a lot of people who love her there's a lot of people who really dislike her and i think anyone going in with a strong opinion of hillary clinton into the series is probably not going to have their mind changed by it there's plenty there for everybody really if you love hillary clinton i think you can look at this documentary and see it incredibly intelligent. innovative and it's inspirational politician if you dislike her you're probably going to see elements of her political conniving. props or arrogance
towards political opponents so i don't think this documentary series is going to change anybody's mind but what i thought was really compelling about it is the fact that is a real in-depth and behind the scenes look at some i think we all agree is one of most important political figures of our talk and i have to say i don't think hillary clinton has self minds the documentary too much bread based on the fact that she he had to marshal to never a press conference so be really interesting to see i mean what kind of message she brings to the job of capital yeah i mean and it's also part of legacy building for her with all the delegates what the competition films screened at the belly knowledge and a. for the most recent film that we've just seen it has had its premiere here on the right cop it was the swiss production chest allowing or little sister this is about twins from a theatrical family the brother sadly dying of leukemia being looked after by his sister who is a playwright set between switzerland and i take
a theatrical while to very much of the actual world berlin and it's the to say siblings are played by 2 of germany's best and my 2 of my most favorite actors a large writing or as that as the brother and the incredible nina hoss as the sister we had discussion about this film afterwards a little bit disagreed i really really like that i think you've always let it be overdone over the body this is a very theatrical movie and a very theatrical performance of both these stars but if you if you like these 2 actors or if you want to see what was real sort of a master class in acting then i definitely think it's a film to check and i want to tell you about the movie that i saw today that i absolutely loved and that is the french piece delete history now this is about 3 friends who meet as yes protesters i mean they meet on a roundabout in the suburbs all fronts they find themselves embroiled in all sorts of trouble i would say due to their use of social media they just don't quite get it is the main a lot of hot water take a watch. now as
a producer you know i know i didn't make love with you marie says to the man on the phone but she had done a lot of whisky and a cell phone camera were involved 6 there who thinks that you seem to think shelters but it does. not mean it isn't the only one caught in the trap of the brave new social media world that tomes daughter is being bullied online. but who is the sort of because honestly to never christine only receives bad reviews and has to buy positive ones in south asia by the internet of course. the 3 are determined to fight for their rights against us tech giants that seem like an invincible. opponent. will more likely got the deficit data is valuable is the gold of today and we just let us be rolled by what's happening here systematic 50. of the film team or in fighting spirit stew in
fine french tradition at the press conference they demonstrative lee showed their support for france's yellow vests protest. it may sound highly political but delete history has turned out to be a captivating comedy about 3 seanie characters who go all the way to silicon valley but ultimately find happiness on their own doorstep entirely analog no signal and definitely no cell phone was the case. all right is that phone that those were the days all right what else are people talking about at the barely know they all have their cell phones in their hands. yeah well i mean we're just talking about that the one film is incredibly time that's being shown here called the assistant and this is being described as the 1st me to film as actually directly inspired by harvey weinstein case and i thought it was it's a phenomenal film not just because the plot of the movie seems to be ripped
directly from the testimony that we're hearing in this trial but also because instead of being directly about the the monster the abuser this is more about the culture that enables him we don't actually see this figure of this harvey weinstein esque figure we follow his assistant and we see how very subtle things happen within an office that allows these these these crimes to take place and i think a very very powerful film and it couldn't have been better to. hold the humphrey and scott right there on the red carpet at the berlin wall to both of you thank you . and the day is almost on the conversation it continues on while you find us on twitter you know the news you can follow me of britain t.v. and don't forget to use the hash tag the day every member whatever happens between now and that tomorrow is another day we'll see you there.
