previous announcement of a potential visit by trump have provoked a backlash amongst british politicians oh i would not wish to issue. to speak in the royal gallery. previous report suggests that mr trump himself postponed a potential visit to the u.k. because he didn't want to be greeted by huge protests and attitudes here really changed in recent polls just start more than half fifty six percent of brits don't want president trump to visit if donald trump comes to the uki will hold the biggest protest in british history he will be mad by a million of us at times in a citizen's arrest of him for incitement of racial hatred spoke to one of the anti trump protest organizers it's a bit disappointing that trump will be visiting and the prime minister treat him a has has agreed to meet with him it's not completely surprising to be honest but it's disappointing you know. he's accountable to the electorate and i think the
6:31 pm
population of britain has more than made its views clear in the fact that we don't want trump to visit we cannot stand his views he's racist tweets that he's come out with his racist policies he's going to come here that that's going to happen we can't do anything about that but whilst he's here we will ensure that we have him you know every step he takes in this country we will be there telling him what we think of him and telling him what we think of his policies should president trump's visit go ahead britain's security agencies could be getting ready for some of the biggest protests to rock this city since the visit of george w. bush in the wake of the iraq war a sally r.t. in london. the u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson is said today washington opposes the north string to pipeline over fears that it will increase european energy dependency on russia his comments came during a meeting with the polish foreign minister in warsaw. flight following the united
6:32 pm
states opposes the north to pipeline we see it as undermining your overall energy security and stability. provide rocio another tool to polluters. years of political two or. three into is a major pipeline project designed to pump russian natural gas into europe but is something of a divisive project nordic and baltic countries have raised concerns that it would weaken european energy security germany and austria though support the project and the need for cheaper gas supplies the united states also wants a slice of europe's lucrative energy market pitching its liquefied natural gas exports as an alternative to the russian natural gas. canisters this story with political analyst at the berlin center for caspian region studies that's mattie is dog but he's very good evening to you first of all your
6:33 pm
response to rex tillerson statement. yes good evening i mean this is nothing new i mean it has to be seen in the context of the u.s. sanctions against russia which were posed last year in august and tested to see not so in the america first policy of president. travel in so far as the united states wants to export their. conventional. elegy liquefied natural gas to the repeat market i mean. most interesting market for that is of course the asian market but nevertheless the european market is also one of the. i could a big targets and as you probably know last year poland already signed a contract to import. from the united states why are there. in sweden who shares so it makes sense to bring up this statement especially in wasilla as president. try it last august you know when he was you know
6:34 pm
asking for closer relations between central europe and united states now president stated in davos that the u.s. is lifting restrictions for energy production let's just have a listen to what he said. my administration is also taking swift action in other ways to restore american confidence and independence we are lifting self-imposed restrictions on energy production to provide affordable power to our citizens and businesses and to promote energy security for our friends all around the world. so we've got the united states saying that we're going to export natural gas we're liquefied natural gas and it's very safe great energy security with us and also at the same time saying you don't want to take gas of the russians that would be bad energy security just looking after their own interests is not the case
6:35 pm
. i mean this is a competitive market and now the united states wants to sell and the russians you know what's their sheep they're not streaming to pipeline is a purely economic project you know i mean driven by these independent companies at it and hence the energy security especially if it comes to gas of europe because it brings more gas to northwest europe and we can we can choose i mean we have so many options to get the gas from norway we get the gas from from from algeria or from the southern corridor or in roughly two years so there are a lot of options so we're not getting any longer any more any more dependent on russian gas it's just a question of the price it's a question of the market and it's purely the pure interest of the united states is to sell their gas in order you know to bring up. industry with a lot of. i see it in this context and that's why they try to play to the
6:36 pm
political way but it is said an economic interest of the united states so the warning coming out from from the u.s. and some european countries is energy security that we won't have it what do they mean by energy security and all those concerns justified. i mean and as if energy security is not in danger when we have the second string of not stripped that's for sure you know i mean russia's pipeline system and the whole you know infrastructure is more dependent on europe than europe is headed toward russia so we already reached energy security it's only the question who has you know the biggest share the market and you saw last year gus plum was quite lucky to export the highest about of gas ever did to europe it was like including turkey was like hundred ninety three p.c.'s and the share of the german market was fifty four
6:37 pm
point three p.c.'s so it's just you know the question who gets who is giving the best offers and who has the best contracts and that's why you know it should be regulated by the market not politics in my opinion despite political concerns will move into definitely completed in your opinion. yes because it has the support of several governments among them the german government and it is you know applied to the. package of the european union and or the other measures which are not which are now taken taken by the commission purely political measures to to to stop downstream but i think it will be not stopped because it applies to to all the regulations and it has a lot of support and it has also a big market it brings germany to the position to become a hub for europe you know giving gas to central europe but also to northwest europe . by opinion there will be no doubt that as
6:38 pm
a project of companies of private companies will be realized that is appreciate your time on your views my guess math is political analyst at the berlin center for caspian region studies. plus more news coming up after a short break. we have a great team we need to strengthen before the freefall world called and better than a legend to keep it so it's at the back.
6:39 pm
in one thousand nine hundred two that must qualify for the european championships at the very last moment no one believed in us but we won and i'm hoping to bring some of that winning spirit to the r.c.t. . recently i've had a lot of practice so i can guarantee you that peter schmeichel will be on the best form since my last will come closer as we. know the old joke was. left left left more or less ok stuff that's really good. will come back at least ninety five people have been killed and more than one hundred sixty injured following a large explosion which rocked the afghan capital kabul that's according to reports citing interior ministry officials. are reports from the ground. we
6:40 pm
understand at this stage it was in an ambulance he had said he had a patient and he was stopped at the second checkpoint by the police force the attack took place right in the heart of kabul this is not very far from the swedish embassy from the european union from the indonesian embassy and from the high peace council which is down the road the attack shows this constant issue of security and intelligence breach is the area where that track took place is less than one hundred meters from the office of the police chief of kabul less than twenty meters away from the afghan intelligence facilities ones. the areas cleared in once the dust settles unfortunately we will be hearing that a lot of those killed ordinary people who are simply the only breadwinners for their families and the people of afghanistan continue to suffer as they continue to bear the brunt of this conflict at
6:41 pm
a time when we also see all sides intensifying the war in. afghanistan a see the spike in deadly terror attacks recently earlier this week armed militants to save the children office in the city of jalalabad shortly after a car bomb exploded outside the premises of the six people were killed dozens more were injured eisel claimed responsibility last saturday a group of terrorists did a luxury hotel in kabul killing at least twenty two the taliban said it was behind the atrocity political analyst. says the afghan security forces like here in strategy in fighting numerous terror groups the situation is getting from bad to worse the security in the afghan security forces are unable you know to have a proper strategy or plan for curbing terrorism not only in kabul city but all over afghanistan and now that we are heading towards
6:42 pm
a spring. in the next two three months probably insurgent attacks will increase in afghanistan and you might end up losing a few provinces to the hands of taliban the international community. headed by the us government and the failed strategies we have seen incidents in iraq we have seen you know the worsening situation in libya in other countries and for the past sixteen seventeen years we have been witnessing these foot strategies in afghanistan i don't think you know they have a strategy for afghanistan. a new british satellite the death of stalin to sparks much debates in russia with some claiming that the film's distorting history others say it's just a comedy this is culture ministry has banned the movie i want cinema screen it anyway leading to a police raid it is done off reports from the cinema. wow. cop
6:43 pm
. asked if this british movie follows the last days and death of joseph stalin as well as the political infighting that ensued so why is it having a problem here in russia it's not about style in themselves but it is about the timing the showing of this movie was supposed to coincide with the anniversary of the battle of stalingrad it was one of the most decisive moments in the second world war and its bloodiest battle and since this movie is dark comedy it is showing in a rather satirical way some of the people that made this victory for russia in that war possible so some are saying that this movies is a bit insensitive for the veterans and those who cherish the memories of the great patriotic war many elderly people will perceive it as an offensive mockery of the soviet past the country that conquered fascism and most disgusting the victims of
6:44 pm
stalinism we don't have censorship we're not afraid of critical assessment of our history. such movies shouldn't even get into russia they shouldn't be discussed just don't let them be shown. i'm ready to come to the cinemas where this film will be shown to speak to those who bought tickets the film is a provocation that might add fuel to the fire so the russian ministry of culture decided to revoke the license of the movie when it comes to public opinion while it's played some agree that some may find the timing a bit insensitive others are saying it's art it's not intended to be story accurate and that people probably shouldn't be taking it too seriously it's just a black comedy what distortion in songs are people talking about. it is brilliant i think sash. film should be shown on primetime t.v. . this film is from the tragic fast protest genre and shouldn't see it from the
6:45 pm
viewpoint of historical accuracy a few months ago a russian movie found itself in an identical situation the film called matilda was telling the story of the last russian tsar nicholas the second and his love affair with a ballerina and the reason that movie faced so much opposition both from the politicians and from ordinary people in the street is because according to the russian orthodox church nicholas the second is a saint so some details of his personal of his love life could be disturbing to a religious person in russia the outcome of that story was the movie was allowed to be shown and people had a chance to make up their own mind while the fate of the death of starland remains in limbo it goes down the party. like staying with us i'll be back with the latest news headlines see you in half an hour.
6:46 pm
prescribe medication is widespread on the us market and a frequent cause of death at that point in my life i just felt like everything with my family was literally coming unglued i had actually planned. to commit some site was all who was made on to prison so commonly used we were doing what the doctors told us to do we were being responsible and what the real side effects. was is completely alter what i did was done on a cocktail of lethal drugs. just because something's legal doesn't mean it's safe. what politicians do so. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or some want to. have to go on to be pros that's

6:49 pm
topping today's news. good afternoon i'm a military man sitting in for bart who as you just saw is on assignment in davos let's get to some of the day's top stories u.s. president donald trump struck a noticeably different tone today during his speech in davos but one message remained the same america first trump said america first does not mean america alone and his words to the world elite as president of the united states i will always put america first just like the leaders of other countries should put their country first also but america first does not mean america alone when the united states grows so does the world. he made his argument that focus on domestic policies such as tax reform for individuals and corporations have boosted the national economy
6:50 pm
citing companies like apple who plan to repatriate billions of dollars back stateside a sober trump state on script without any off the cuff remarks assuring the economic titans that a prospect a prosperous america is good for the world. and european central bank president mario draghi joined the critics of u.s. treasury secretary steve menuhin on thursday druggy pointed pointedly suggested that the nugent's comments that a weak dollar is good for the u.s. economy was a violation of an agreement reached with washington in october to avoid competitive currency devaluations druggy went on to say several members of the e.c.b. governing council quote expressed concern that this was broader than simply the exchange rate it was about the overall status of international relations right now . in the us aid trump appointee is pushing a major change to the legal process for settling alleged labor law violations peter
6:51 pm
robb general counsel of the national labor relations board or n.l.r.b. outlined plans to affectively demote the regional directors who resolve about eighty five percent of n.l.r.b. cases by placing them in a new smaller tier of civil servants who could overrule the regional managers the changes expected to tilt the system toward ruling in favor of employers. all right let's head back now to davos with our children for reaction to the president's speech let's get parts thoughts on this as well as those who are in attendance. monella present trump speech was warmly received by a polite audience most of the time was spent on what the president himself describes as being a cheerleader for the united states he told the crowd that the u.s.
6:52 pm
was open for business and competitive again he said the economy was strong and smashing one stock market record after another consumer and business confidence was high and unemployment was low since by election we've created two point four million jobs and that number is going up very very substantially small business optimism is at an all time high new unemployment claims are near the lowest we've seen in almost half a century on the international front the president said that america first does not mean america alone he said we cannot have peace without security and that other nations need to contribute their fair share to that security on trade he said he wants free open and reciprocal trade and made a declaration that he is open to re entering the transpacific partnership or in agreement with a subgroup of the proposed eleven nation pac we support free trade but it
6:53 pm
needs to be fair and it needs to be reciprocal. because in the end unfair trade undermines a so he also noted briefly about fighting terrorism together and mentioned his support for a merit based u.s. immigration system what was notable about the president's speech and his trip here to davos generally is it was absent of any major pope haws the president spoke from a teleprompter except for two questions at the end of his speech the speech was on disrupted by any protest although there was a large protest earlier in the week in zurich the city where the president's plane air force one landed before departing to davos on several helicopters with the presidential entourage during his davos trip the president met with several world leaders including british prime minister to resubmit he also met with many business leaders or when asked earlier today if he was bringing back any big deals from his
6:54 pm
visit here and how much those might be worth the president simply said the united states is doing fantastically well business is are coming back and then when pressed robert reporters on how much any business deals might be worth the president simply replied probably a lot so far there hasn't been any more specifics on any deal or deals manila that's the latest on the president but it boom bust as you know we're not all trump all the time over and over again so i'm pleased to tell our viewers that we are now joined by the bitcoin queen of switzerland olga feld meyer whose day job is c.e.o. of smart valor all good thank you for being with us thank you but have most part of the new here explain smart valor and what you call the smart valor network. sparked well or it's a decentralized marketplace for the tokenized alternative investments and flabby body who doesn't know what to can is a sin maybe people heard about so so can you see it on any public gluckstein you
6:55 pm
know backed by some kind of ownership. of the company or realize that this is still can use ation rate and today we seize the first examples of the can ization but actually anything can be two straight real estate infrastructure project diamonds so the ability. to market place for those took a nice alternative investments or when we met a few months back at fin tech week in hong kong you spoke very eloquently about something near and dear to my heart as a former presidential regulator transparency and compliance explain your perspective for our viewers on that yeah you see a regulation this kind of legs the biggest toddle today on survey of adoption of plug chain technology in finance it started was based bitcoin and you know i was very fortunate to be involved in one of the first major regulatory. cases for
6:56 pm
bitcoin in switzerland. we've made significant progress in switzerland and switzerland is developed in the crypt hop for finance right it's been just last week. the president of switzerland proclaims the wish of establishing the crypto nation switzerland right so we hope you know that also swiss sort of financial regulator will continue this positive development and create an appropriate regulator framework to enables us kind of technology in businesses although you have a background at u.b.s. working with high net worth individuals it seems they might have some roadblocks to investing in crypto currency i mean one there are so many out there how do you choose and to it's a really technical space how are they doing this that's true actually you see there are a lot of exchanges for cryptocurrency spirit this is not the focus of business but
6:57 pm
you're absolutely right to. to to invest in crypt occurrences today in. a smart way you actually need a technical knowledge and pretty deep one you need to understand the difference and protocols. you know why why is this protocol is better than z. as of on and scalability interoperability and so on so for most people this is not possible so most people just read what other people say this is you know a lot of votes peculation rate good development is that you know stories of all when we see some kind of institute in state institutions structures come into place like crypto. writers there are fans that sit have teams that you know have a very deep technical understanding and they select in the proper investments so this is in the stories evolve in the things that are a few interest and opportunity to get exposure to this industry so
6:58 pm
a larger question for you this is davos and the theme here is creating a shared vision in a fragmented world how does block change and or digital currencies play into that whole it's very good question bart i really saw a vial about it and then the starts you know fraction world i mean there are so many aspects to say that look what we're talking about terms of technology side looks into knowledge aside here is actually about this intro is ation and disinter mediation right so blog chain this is a technological power that will be trying to central this zation even faster rate so the first example is of course bitcoins the first to sensual post national currency rate so that means you know that that actually how i was a citizen decides what i do was my money and where i send it government has no influence on that right so that tension that has been you know.
6:59 pm
potentially this is her. a way to weaken wanted to live when it sort of pull itself off of states' rights so basically you can say that we're talking here about. social contract between government and people in a certain way right and this is just the first separated because from decentralized money will go to decentralized wells and decentralized property and so on right decentralized identity right i den public lectures where you can store your identity and it's not government who is in charge shows that right so i think you know it's it's kind of fractioned world on the one side but technology wise to get support for full underlying trend is towards a decentralized society and that's
7:00 pm
a good. one final quick question are you personally invested in crypto currencies. actually today you should know should know they do and then you statements about it but i think that was one of the best decisions i've made although felled by the bitcoin queen of switzerland and c.e.o. of smart valor thank you so much for being with us thank you. time now for a quick break but hang out with us because we want to finish out our week here at davos and here are the numbers at the closing bell.
