hard in this country. we've got to begin to work together to get things done we're the greatest nation on earth and there has been too much i believe all discourse in this country today that part is general we need to work together well let's take a look back now at how the current divide in the u.s. became so clear they came to prominence as soon as donald trump stepped into office with nationwide protests both against the new president. i would say were more open minded were kind of more moderate well educated people a lot of educated people who are sensible. they were kind of very good weren't they i'm not to judge what other people's education and stuff is it's not surprising that the country is divided. on the war of words rapidly developed into her culminating in unrest in the california city of berkeley back in spring violent protests against a speech by

that turned to tragedy after the deadly car crash. the dean of during university's law school in the u.k. told us it's ever harder to find compromise in the country despite the white house's efforts. the political dimension is you have very much a clear right in the left splits in american politics right and left split that seems to be without much of a center ground as you know with the a lot of space in the middle of the right has become more rights and and someone say the left has become more left of the country's become more polarized and people are not. total trump is promised to bring people together but it seems that people have never been further apart under under his rule speaks about you united we
stand divided. we spoke. with. the democrats. one of the reasons i won the election is because they're very divided. r.t. is continuing its campaign to find relatives of russian speaking children stranded at an iraqi war from each bringing them home is the call we're seeking to be heard globally among those identified to date are sisters five year old kid and three year old fatuma youngsters reportedly being taken to iraq by their persian joined

i remember. and his description of saying the same the person. the idea that. this little boy would describe such an update that stuck with me and there was all that come across thinking. well if you have any information about the kids please do contact us using the e-mail address at the bottom of your screen. the only going verbal spots between the u.s. and north korea is generating plenty of headlines made growing fears that could erupt into a real confrontation donald trump's military adviser is also ringing the alarm but i think we're not closer to war than a week ago but we're closer to war than we were a decade ago and this has been
a problem that we've procrastinated on for a long period of time and now it's coming to a head where the threat from north korea not only to the united states but to the world is very very clear. perhaps not surprising that people are worried but words like that google searches in the u.s. for how to survive a nuclear attack are i trending classics like how to get rich how to be happy daniel hawkins has been taking a look at who actually benefits from any scaremongering. the higher the tension the halter the rhetoric we've certainly had no shortage of that in recent days but who stands to gain from this war of words for one the u.s. president to skip busy sounding military drums against north korea. they will be met. by view. that if there is a state. maybe it wasn't so. tough
talk like this that brought him unique popularity according to one poll trump's approval ratings jumped to forty five percent on the back of those comments. next on the list the north korean all me twenty young claims a whopping three and hoff million volunteers have signed up for the country's military all because of the recent escalation if true definitely a win for his all the recruits is. now moving on to guam the u.s. territory located closest to north korea people there have already received god loans and what to do when they see a mushroom clouds but there's an unexpected cause for celebration because apparently all the hype will actually do the good.
and where there is war all even the talk of one is always big money and this time it's ten points for the bunk a business really worried for my family my kids just want to make sure room protected sales are proudly going through the roof on the way. apocalypse styria now with military tensions running high bomb shelters are alas making a comeback to clients god help people who are really bridge and really freaked out his clientele has changed from people afraid obama would take their property to those of great trouble started nuclear war all this drama with north korea it's paying off in a big way for this company take a look at what they are selling here these are massive bomb shelters one such companies even advising people to form an entire survival community if nuclear
armageddon talk has you scared feel you could move to one of these bunkers scattered around a whopping twenty square kilometers in south dakota yet another says they're completely sold out are even true did so but we have the capacity to me. years maybe trees around the world. so plenty of point scoring on the back of needs planning but while the big boss is reaping the rewards the laws communities of people are left losing sleep over the fear of the yet another conflict some breaking news just coming into us from sierra leone we are putting it together for you ninety seconds we'll bring it to you stay with r.t. . i .

a response to u.s. sanctions iran's parliament has approved the plan which will allocate two hundred sixty million dollars to tehran's missile program on the same again to its elite core the country's deputy foreign minister is the proposal does not violate to runs obligations under its nuclear deal the bill must pass a second vote let's get into this further because i'm joined live by phone is eighty a professor of political communications at the university of tehran thanks so much for joining us on the program is to run trying to escalate the spot with washington here. i think the ugandan government is trying to send a signal to the u.s. government that the new legislation that was signed by president just a few days ago is not. done in government is not happy with that.
law. and government believes it's a violation of the nuclear agreement and in that law the u.s. government wants to sanction you dons missile program and that iran. summit republican guards corps or any other things. section eight of that law while it's severely basically a nuclear agreement so this is a signal from tehran that whatever is making you dislike us whatever it is that you don't like we make sure that fully funded and that's why they're funding their missile program given the fact that the u.s. government is threatening north korea with nuclear weapons having come vention and most of this is the basic thing a country can have so you know they are u.s.
sanctions actually having a desired effect from what washington wants. obviously not because the aim of the sanctions were to put pressure on iran's missile program put pressure on i r g c you know it's military and it's having the opposite effect in fact it is basically boosting their standing becoming popular internally because people are realizing that you don't is relatively safe in this part of the world because you can defend it unlike iraq or afghanistan iran is able to defend itself and realize that this is the you to the fact that your own military has a strong ok so if it does see iran as having nuclear ambitions how do you think america should approach the situation. you know that that's the question belong to about two years ago iran does not have
a program never had and we had included a dream and based on the nuclear agreement. will not have will not be able to have any type of nuclear weapons program is what john kerry used to say that iran had four pathways to a nuclear bomb and his argument was that the need for the argument has blocked all those pathways iranian government has been saying they never wanted in the future a nuclear weapon but based on the agreement because of the monitoring iran is not going to be able to make a bomb so that's that's an old question thanks so much for taking the time to speak to assess our full on a.z.t. professional political communication of the university of tehran. the e.u. migration commissioner has called for member states to get tougher on illegal immigrants and ensure they get deported across the story is our teeth at least. there's certainly a change in rhetoric from the e.u.
migration commissioner dimitri opera marple as who one year ago said the e.u. should work harder to accept more asylum seekers let me remind you that europe already has the highest asylum standards in the world and we have to uphold those and our commitment to protect those seeking protection. we need a strict and more effective policy for deportation too few migrants are being deported the european states have to do more his change of term really boils down to the e.u.'s relocation policy for the refugees and migrants is apparently falling apart i mean in the beginning it was mostly the eastern european states like hungary and poland in the baltic states being against that used welcoming policy for the migrants and refusing to take in more and more refugees but now we're hearing more voices of this content from other countries as well particularly italy which really has been bearing the brunt of the migrants are the refugees arriving from africa as well as the middle east in search of a better life in europe since the beginning of this year we're talking about new
the one hundred thousand migrants who have arrived in italy and we can really see that things are reaching boiling point in situation is particularly worsening in the small italian town of. were locals have been protesting against building a new refugee shelter for under age migrants. ok what did you get out of we are on the police a minute approached a friend of mine and got into his car he was trying to steal her bag we couldn't handle the situation any more i don't blame this people i blame the government i don't know what they're doing i'm just here to say that we can't take it any more we don't want them here. we give them a place to sleep and food we give them eighty euros a day but first we should be taken care of our own children our own people oh elderly. the mayor of this town says ventimiglia simply has been left alone to deal
with the crisis by themselves and he's one of the many who has been accusing the e.u. of not providing its countries with enough support to take in more migrants in europe . the european union we've never seen do anything here i don't think the e.u. has given us any real support the big expense for us comes from underage migrants who the town according to law has to take care of generally we will be reimbursed around harf of the expenses there are tens of thousands of years that our town is paying at the moment because of this go earlier this year it's really even threatened to close down its ports to boats carrying migrants so we'll just have to wait and see how officials will react to the situation and it's early and also how they plan to tackle the ongoing migrant crisis in the us where we leave our news for no this our season.
what holds a change to something that. i put themselves on a lot. to get accepted or rejected. so when one of the first century. or something want to reach. out you'd like to be closer to see what before three of the more people get. interested in the waters and. there should be. a batch or sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. you're out caught up to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry suddenly i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i
never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath . but then my feelings started to change you talked about war like it was a cave still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promise to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with death this one quite different to speak to now because there are no other takers. to blame that mainstream media has met its maker.
