cortez assured in a conservative majority for years to come while the senate approved the nomination by 52 votes to 48 barrett's appointment was strongly opposed by democrats. after a month in the spotlight she finally got to say these words. judge me county sheriff he's heading to the u.s. supreme court. it's a privilege to be asked to serve my country and this office and i stand here tonight truly honored and humbled. president donald trump is on hand to celebrate one of his signature achievements locking in a conservative majority on the supreme court for many years to come. this is a momentous day for america for the united states constitution and for the fair and impartial rule of law. barrett took an oath at the white house only an
3:16 pm
hour after the senate narrowly voted to secure the nomination order with only one republican not supporting the motion. democrats strongly opposed to the confirmation saying a supreme court justice shouldn't be appointed this close to an election let the record show that tonight the republican senate majority decided to thwart the will of the people and confirm a lifetime appointment to the supreme court in the middle of a presidential election. opponents of carney bars nomination say it paves the way for conservative rulings on abortion rights health care and q. rights karni barrett val but she will remain independent. the oath that i have certainly taken tonight means at its core that i will do my job without any fear or favor and that i will do so
3:17 pm
independently of both the political branches and of my own preferences. she'll take this 2nd or 3rd it's on tuesday at a private ceremony which will allow her to begin the fish who duties on the court. well joining me now to discuss this in greater detail is washington bird chief paul innes the confirmation is to say the least very striking very different from previous appointments to the supreme court tell us why. well i know this is the 1st time in more than 150 is that a justice was confirmed this out of the support of a single member of the minority party that shows how bits of washington's war over . nominations from the supreme court has become and whether it was the speed alone which is really outstanding the republicans trust that the nation nomination
3:18 pm
throwing only 5 weeks and last night ceremony just saw in this piece is also on president as president donald trump can use the white house as a powerful background for a political rally just one week ahead of election night all right and it is the u.s. is just a week away from the presidential election and to say the least emotions are running high and will a term success in appointing he his choice for the bench of the highest court in the land influence the outcome of that election. it should help him as it reminds conservatives to understand how important the supreme court is and i would say normally this would give a big boost to get conservatives eyelets to vote because there is still a possibility that donald trump if he gets reelected can add another supreme court justices in his 2nd term because justice breyer is also 82 years old
3:19 pm
however we also experienced that pandemic now really overshadows these last days before election day because we have to keep in mind there are already 225000 americans who have died of code of coburg 19 and more and more voters have to mourn the death of family members and this becomes the most important topic for many right now now in the report that we just aired or we heard a justice barrett say she will do her job independently of both political branches and her own preference is it possible that now that she's reached such a high office for life she may actually relax some of the polarizing views that the democrats accuse her of. they don't this is hard to say we will have to see she is an originalist. and that will shape her views.
3:20 pm
she believes that the constitution is a document that is not meant to change so i think it's fair to say that i can see her changing her views and we have to keep in mind she's a prodigy of late justice scalia and it is hard to believe that she really deeply will change her approach to political stands in washington bureau chief enhanced poll reporting thank you. now it's not a stretch to say that john has have dropped a number of times over the behavior of the current us presidents and as a bonafide reality television star donald trump's hold on the public imagination is certainly larger than life well american television and cinema have a long tradition of portraying its highest office and you might recall kevin spacey chilling turn in house of cards and that's just one example because tonight in moscow the president in t.v.
3:21 pm
and the movies the american president can be anything he can be an action hero. in the family kitchen he can be an ordinary guy gather together. he can even be a sheet there is the dawn of a new era one that i think that her. pro-communist movie presidents have reflected our hopes and expectations for the real resident of the white house the regional model for the saintly larger than life hollywood president was walter houston in d.w. griffith abraham lincoln all the people. around not heard it from there. he said it's a goal who's always president salva seems. we'll talk more in the public imagination presidents from lincoln all the way down to john f. kennedy were statesmen fighting for the good of their country. when the person then came nixon and watergate when a major. without fear of
3:22 pm
a hostile demonstration there in the money lost confidence in their president they also lost confidence in their nixon's on screen legacy can be seen in everything from jack nicholson smarmy president and mars attacks to the conniving kevin spacey in house of cards in the end i don't care whether you love me or you hate me just as long as i win. it took a hollywood actor we store america's faith in its commander in chief. after ronald reagan movie presidents became action stars and the. morning. in the $99.00 deal that the president will be a superman. we celebrate. your tax t.v. has done a better job of depicting presidents who get politics to martin sheen in the west

wing was more popular than either of the real candidates for the 2004 election some argue dennis haysbert black president and 24 paved the way for barack obama so far however fictional female presidents have not inspired americans elect a woman to the white house. thank you very much thank you for economy of comedians to trump impressions but there's never been a film character anything like the current u.s. president perhaps trump as a reality t.v. star prepared america for his own reality t.v. presidency which in turn could inspire trump like presence on screen really created the sort of. all. movies. presidents who are unscrupulous. only interested. nor is. the. power in government. but i don't go with

a gold watch he. perhaps when it comes to donald trump proof really is stranger than fiction. all right now some good news for all those dreaming about one day setting up camp on the moon or using it as a staging ground for space travel nasa scientists say they found clear evidence that there's more water on the moon than anyone previously suspected while new research suggests that future explorers won't have to venture to distant polar regions in search of life sustaining water. more water on the moon yes life no that's what nasa announced that he video press conference scientists there said they found more water on the moon than they ever thought before but they shot down the idea that that would mean the moon could harbor life . the discovery of more water on the moon was confirmed by technology from its
3:25 pm
flying lab the stratospheric observatory for infrared astronomy known also by its acronym sophia the scientists said that the deposits are at least partly the result of meteors that carried water and that crashed on the surface of the moon the impact caused rock to melt and form glass beads and trapping the water thus allowing it to survive on the moon's harsh surface more water bearing beads might also be buried deeper nasa also said that there is perhaps more water hidden in the form of ice patches located in permanent shadows of the moon one of the nasa scientists said that it's not a lot of water the amount is equal to $1300.00 milliliter bottle of water per cubic meter another said that the water doesn't mean that there could be life on the moon because you need more than water to ensure the conditions for life oh.
3:26 pm
well. or. however scientists did say that if they can eventually extract enough water from the moon it could eliminate the need to bring water on space missions water is very heavy and takes up a lot of room room that could be used for other purposes. you're watching the news coming up next indeed every news asia. the u.s. is once closer security ties with india in its push to continue a rising china but china and his defiance as its economic and military might boost national confidence away empty pools medians even accounts entire resorts in part. trouble babs. all those stories a whole lot more coming up in news asia in just

melissa chan welcome to news asia thank you for joining us exactly one week before possibly the most consequential u.s. election secretary of state mike pompei own defense secretary mark esper has flown to india to meet with their counterparts it's almost as if they're running against the clock rolling out as much of their asia policy in case their boss president donald trump loses the election india has signed a military agreement with the u.s. to share sensitive satellite information and the 2 will participate in naval exercises next month those are war games along with australia and japan all members of the quad a partnership of india pacific democracies. joining us is guerilla mohan of the german marshall fund for more grima pump a.o. and esper are in india but this is as much about china isn't it. absolutely
3:32 pm
so this meeting comes in the backdrop of chinese aggression at india's border region which shows no signs of abating it also comes in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic that is leading to a lot of questions in india about economic dependence on china the role of china in international organizations because china is definitely a factor but let's not forget that this meeting is also a culmination of all of us india ties which has been growing stronger not only over the last 4 years but also since the early 2000 so i would say when india and us signed the civilian nuclear deal so this partnership has been going from strength to strength china has definitely exeter's ated trends. the u.s. stands to gain a lot by building closer ties with india delhi can serve as a counterweight to rising china but what does india stand to gain isn't having an antagonistic relationship with china only going to make things more difficult for
3:33 pm
india. the indian foreign minister zarif can say when asked about whether india would choose sides in the us china competition said india will choose its own side and will work for his own national interests so that's an important frame to keep in mind. successive indian governments in the pasta actually have been quite mindful of beijing's sensitivities when it comes to india's close and eyes with the us and have even pump the brakes on us india ties however india has being increasingly disappointed with china despite several high level summit between kindness to modi and presidency they have been so many roadblocks to india china partnership including china's coziness with pakistan on its growing influence in india's neighborhood in the indian ocean region gatekeeping india out of international organizations and really the watershed moment of conflict on the border that showed that not only was the relationship competitive but it can
3:34 pm
actually need to military escalation as a result of which india has been diversifying and strengthening its papa ship not only with the u.s. but with a number of other countries including france vietnam indonesia japan australia and even the e.u. how do most people in india and carious feel about the country's involvement in the quad which if you look at a map essentially looks like an encirclement strategy from kind of point of view. so it's interesting china's views of the quad have really often made between calling it the seafoam back to disappear shortly to the asian nato and the military aspect of the quad is actually quite exaggerated but for me the more interesting question and also for a lot of people in india is the broader trend why did countries in the region feel the need to revive tax forms like the quad and the quad is just one example there
3:35 pm
are so many trilateral mini lateral configurations coming up in the in the pacific region and that is because countries including india have feelings she think he threatened by china by the possibility of military aggression china unilaterally altering status quo threats to the economic retaliate and coming out of china as a response to domestic policy the phenomena of countries which you're reading that to this movement that countries are now grouping together in order to ensure that the balance of power is maintained in asia that all countries pay by the rules and the region is not dominated by any one country and i think a lot is being within this broader movement to what extent do you think a potential biden administration would change the relationship so it isn't a sweet spot when it comes to the us election no matter who wins there is an
3:36 pm
emerging bipartisan consensus that the us and the other nations ship is extremely important joe biden recently remarked that he sees india as a critical partner for maintaining u.s. national security interests so there is little expectation that there will be any fundamental change in the us india partnership with the new administration and the deal that happened today we need to remember is a result of almost 20 years of foundation needs down by the bureaucracies of both sides karima mohan thank you thank you for having me. pale and as for head to sri lanka and the next 2 countries that have been unduly impacted by chinese investment and influence this american trip is very much about countering china and 2020 has been a reckoning of sorts for us global power there's a feeling among many people all over the world rightly or wrongly that china is

quickly becoming a new great power in. the city of hung joe on china's booming east coast a key location for the electronics sector at a tech convention we find several chinese companies that have been blacklisted by the u.s. . for instance surveillance camera maker don which has been accused of aiding china's repression of the muslim weaker minority and with its products what is the impact of u.s. sanctions no one wants to talk to foreign reporters here by you by. huawei is also under pressure china's telecom giant had to stock up on billions of dollars worth of computer chips from the u.s. in order to keep manufacturing products in the future as the u.s. government bans huawei from dealing with u.s. firms due to security concerns. force another to. many sanctions against chinese firms may cause a lot of problems for china but sometimes this can be an inspiration the pressure
3:38 pm
can help china's technology firms grow bigger and stronger but if you're a hockey little about to get it you would be healthier for the facing the future with confidence in contrast to the u.s. china has successfully imposed strict measures against the coronavirus pandemic that. the city is able to breathe again after the pandemic life and the economy on the right path yeah yeah i also did i mean it was a look at the u.s. and the others because their governments didn't take action the pandemic situation there is still serious it is going to be easy but you don't know if your book could have u.s. elections won't mean any major changes for china trump wins that pressure. and china will increase but biden will also go against china parkhouse a little bit you'll be fit to put them in beijing the foreign policy expert at this chinese think tank completely agrees with the communist leadership he thinks the us this china bashing china is a force on stoppable china will continue its
