11:05 am
states and china have approved a phase by phase train deal they want to qatar of some chinese goods boosting american farm exports to beijing it follows a 19 month trade war between the world's 2 largest economies with more artie's kill about it. well rumors have been circulating for the past few days that some kind of deal was in the works to resolve the trade disputes between the usa and china the idea being that the tariffs would be scaled back in exchange for tens of billions of dollars of agricultural products and other things being purchased from the united states and some concessions on china's part now in response to these rumors that we heard the democrats speaking up this was chuck schumer reports say president sold out for a temporary unreliable promise from china it's a purchase some soybeans we've heard this song and dance from china before yet
11:06 am
again president trump can't be relied on to do the right thing even when his statements were pointing in the right direction now we then heard from donald trump speaking up about how this was simply fake news this is what he said the wall street journal story on the china deal is completely wrong especially this statement on tariffs fake news they should find a better lead but just a few hours afterwards we heard china come forward with an official press conference announcing that phase one of the deal was on the verge of being implemented this is what we heard from the official chinese press conference. the agreement will create better conditions for china and the united states to strengthen cool peroration economy and trade property monies unresolved economic and trade disputes all differences and promote stable growth of china's economic and trade relations given the don would. now trump spoke up afterwards saying that essentially china had agreed to
11:07 am
a number of structural changes and would be purchasing a u.s. agricultural products as well as energy and manufactured goods also said that he was hoping to begin work on phase 2 of the agreement but he would want to do that immediately not wait until 2020 this trade war has been asking lading between the united states and china sense june of 28 teen there's been an escalation of tariffs many many different you know regulations being put in place and different products being targeted but it seems that some kind of resolution is in the works so we now have an agreement of some degree so folks we waiting to see what happens next there has been hope before that trade war was going to be resolved and those hopes of then been shortly afterward disappointed so what comes next it remains to be seen but at the moment many are optimistic that it appears that things are moving forward. or to america broke down in the agreement a little further of talk through why it's too early to heal any real success. is
11:08 am
this deal going to end up being no different than what these 2 countries had to begin with it's like if i take something away from you and then i give it back to you i didn't really give it to you exactly and this was actually the exact same thing that was on the table back in march if you remember the trade deal that was on the table back in march like we said we will buy more ads you take back our tabs this is exact same thing and trump was like no we demand ip protection we demand rights who are american companies and you need to restructure your government to not handle private corporations he demanded all of these things and now china was like no we're not going to do that and look at the terms of phase one here it's so vague and all of those things are taken out the only thing that are actually legitimate on the table are literally purchases and rollback of tariffs so the journey's want us to roll back as you say are we did we roll them all by our sort all of them but all of them are rollbacks so the sticking point of why this had to happen today aside from the fact that there was also some impeachment stuff going on right so you kind of take over the news but aside from that as of sunday about
11:09 am
$160000000000.00 worth of new tariffs are going to be added to chinese goods and the reason that is needed to get something done today is because had that been enacted for the 1st time american consumers were going to start feeling this trade deal in a negative way and he doesn't want that one isn't is a non deal right now this is a deal for public consumption it's just a face really the crux of it is face to face 3 and right now in order to save even more face trump said phase 2 is going to be great phase 2 is going to be eminent and we will see how phase one turns out. more than 24 hours on baros johnson's conservative party is all a victory tour after their historic win in the u.k. general election the prime minister is visiting the north of england to meet his fellow party m.p.'s who lost the labor rivals to secure a big majority he thought his supporters to. i want the people of the
11:10 am
northeast today that we in the conservative body i will repay your trust 1st of all what are we going to do to rebuild. to get brecht's it died when she got it and we have a deal ready to go before we get it in before christmas we've just been going over the timetable we can definitely get in before christmas and then we're out on january 31st. or as the tories biggest election win in more than 3 decades the prime minister earlier said it gives him a powerful mandate to deliver as he was just speaking about their break that the poor mark the worst result for the labor party since thank you for north of the border meanwhile the scottish national party were celebrating a long slide victory which has reignited calls for a 2nd independence referendum in edinburgh kevin on the scarse the election and its consequences with corresponding. polls are predicting a tory majority throughout the election campaign but not to this extent i mean labor's been decimated losing your key seats in its northern heartlands in the
11:11 am
middle of all or many of them seats which voted labor for 3050 even close to 100 years so this is very much been a defeat for labor based really on a lot of people are saying on the question of brics it went in with a very clear message get bricks it down it was very clear very simple it resonated with those areas with those communities that voted to leave and we've heard michel barnier say no way we're going to get a trade deal signed with britain by the end it will be $21.00 boris johnson so it's going to be well that's the thing i mean no trade deal of this size or complexity has been negotiated with the e.u. ever and he's saying that we're going to come out by genevieve the 1st we've been going until june 2022 negotiate this deal it's also got be ratified of course by the $27.00 member states if that doesn't happen the prospect of a new deal bricks come this time next year is that very much on the table spoke of the works along the line what's going to happen on the border between northern ireland or the republic of ireland that's still not sorted up plus there's the whole scottish question ok can off even more nationalist parties have done
11:12 am
fantastically well in this election i mean speaking of ireland the deputy leader. dogs lost his seat to the new can for the 1st time since 1921 of ireland nationalists now outnumber unionists s.n.p. again a whole different kettle of fish certainly no disunity in scotland they were very clear that they wanted to remain in the e.u. the s.n.p. has capitalized on that and made massive. gains 48 seats one percent increase last night we saw nicolas 13 jubilant dancing in fact when the leader just wins and lost her seat and this is what she had to say on independence referendum last like a stunning election win last night for the s.n.p. renew reinforces and strengthens the mandate we have from previous elections to offer the people of scotland a choice over the future that monday says that it is for the scottish parliament nor a westminster government to say whether and when this should be a new referendum on independence the office of prime minister pro shorts and saying
11:13 am
there's got no intention of allowing a friend in the near future that you've results the 20. has to be respected and there will be a return to division and uncertainty so he's been an unequivocal that's not a priority that's not going to happen s. and p. they're already preparing to sit down next week and publish what they describe as a detailed democratic case for letting scotland aside and whether there should be a 2nd independence referendum so boris johnson isn't going to have it easy he may have his hands untied he may have lost the opposition of his own m.p.'s of labor he's got difficult negotiations coming up and he's got the question of scottish independence and in big trouble in northern ireland as well to deal with that well in the wake of the conservative clean up party u.k. discuss what it all means for the all but inevitable breaks that. it to all intents and purposes the selection in the end became a bricks at election which in itself was a de facto referendum and therefore in that context it is somewhat
11:14 am
a stand to say that labor voters and tradition that the areas such as. west brom and should. embrace the conservative party in the large majority center in the leafy suburbs the sorry i don't see a referendum taking place now you know if it's a case of ever wanting to rejoin the e.u. it will be as an absolute assadi from a position of great obliqueness pressure it was probably because syces factor in most voters' minds but there were a few other issues that i mean it's fairly obvious that the labor's policies were quite hard left and i think that probably didn't resonate quite so well with as much as the public as they had hoped some of the policies were a little bit a little bit stream to say the least so that was probably part of it but i think yes the predominant issue was was practice it and the conservative party presented the way forward the certainty of the resolution and the end to the torment and
11:15 am
frustration and confusion that we've been suffering for the last few years of course it doesn't mean that the process is finished but i think the 1st stage and crucially the political element of it is now resolved. in a surprise move the berlin transport authority has applied for a unesco world heritage status a lot of company jokingly admits that sometimes known for overcrowding perhaps even rude service it saves the transport system is the only place left in the rapidly changing city where berlin is stable or that. takes a closer. what does the taj mahal in india the much you paid. transit system have in common well nothing yet but they may soon be sharing the spot on unicycles heritage list. who is on down and could decide to try to be called t.v.'s must see him have in mind is.
11:16 am
done by law to teach to be called the berlin transit authority has applied for a world heritage status and wants to be included on the same list of some of the world's most fascinating architectural monuments but what makes the berlin transit system so special he appeared in a stock page design side. it's certainly convenient and even runs 24 hours a day on fridays and saturdays but if you've ever been on one of their subways you'll realize that the stuff could be a little bit frosty. the education. it's all fair the different. it will be. somebody saying it's all good for marriage so customer service is not really their thing and mention the overcrowding and the long delays so we went around asking berliners what they think about their transit system and whether
11:17 am
it should be included on heritage list it's one of the oldest so i think you have to save it and to use it it's been a great transportation to use but i don't know if it's exactly. why not because it's an it's a quite old system in and in germany the ground system and. underground stations look like a huge because here it's i don't think it should be however he's shown. it's a service rather than a truck. with people already seeing yes on the company's website. the whole unesco right it could indeed have some traction but it could also just be a ticket to promote the city's public transit network so remember next time you're angrily into a bus by a driver or you're already limited space is being invaded on one other subways this could all be part of a world heritage experience the federal slips us for artsy. we'll see how they get

11:19 am
you know world a big part of a. lot of things and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that made history media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. we're back with our international it's claimed facebook is causing harm to public health an open letter signed by dozens of health advocates and gay rights groups is the mounting of the social media platform dropping they say 'd misinformed people
11:20 am
about the effects of using the hiv prevention drug truvada the advertisements are targeting. facebook and instagram users and are causing significant harm to public health the signers of this letter request that facebook and instagram remove the advertisements and also publicly address the misinformation that the platforms have allowed to spread. the letter sees the risk people expressed heightened fears of by taking the drug after seeing the potentially leading to avoidable. infections though the adverts placed by multiple law firms urge gay and bisexual and to join a lawsuit against the drug maker claiming it has caused harmful side effects facebook says' the verge told to violate their rules but their policy also states that in some cases they can be removed if an expert organization claims.
11:21 am
well matthew roots from the hiv advocacy organization health get up to listen his view facebook is not doing enough. i myself have been taking the drug for 6 years now and i've seen 0 side effects on the drug facebook is promoting an ad that makes it really hard to allow people to have a really powerful and really safe new prevention option their 1st exposure to this peo is that it is dangerous this is misleading false and also only harming public health and the efforts to hiv pandemic globally they want to act like they are the biggest game in town and they are but that means that you have some ethical responsibilities when it comes to certain areas you need to room more accurate things about health you need to do some more things about news you claim that you are a news outlet for people in place that people get news but refused to fact check or even engage in the notion and allow people to spread lies that are harmful to people's public health so it's a civil discourse and me until this is

11:23 am
will help to settle the relationship between the russian federation and ukraine. we are committed to human rights to be respected that's not a question what we don't like is that that sometimes the reference to human rights serves as a basis to. to interfere into domestic issues of other countries on an ideological basis on a political basis without any good reason. there should be some at the station mechanisms launched with the nato in order to be able to address the new kinds of challenges no question about calling nato brain dead that was too much i think i definitely didn't agree with that part but but i mean these debates should evolve and we have to understand that there are leaders who
11:24 am
like to say let's say things which can be media ties easily we have to understand that we have to live with that now the the atmosphere of the of the summit was rather constructive everybody was emphasizing the importance of the unity of nato and i think that that was shown very clearly. a full version of the interview will be available on our social media website shortly all right that is hello sunny's global news headlines are looking for hope you'll join kevin at the top of they are for all of today's updates see you soon this is our chief international. seem wrong. to

11:28 am
u.s. dollar as world's reserve currency has indeed been a massive privilege and we should have done everything to sustain that so acting like a bully has not only saw that you know even france and germany are coming up with an alternative to swift to circumvent the u.s. dollar to circumvent the new york fed where all trades are settled that exorbitant privileges ending but this privilege of having the you know. this being so crucially important to world trade is also ending because what we're seeing is this shocking headline and this is miss talk talking about a wall street journal headline china no longer needs u.s. parts in its phones american tech companies are getting the go ahead to resume business with chinese smartphone giant qual way technologies but it may be too late it is now building smartphones without us chips while ways latest phone which it unveiled in september called the meat 30 with a curved display and wide angle cameras that compete with apple's i phone 11
