2:04 pm
investigated want to emphasize that the needs to introduce a state of emergency arose from a situation of violence and not peaceful demonstrations as some have tried to claim the police is taking to the lot of. ignore. it say leave it to art. they have no any any kind of pain to go on and be very adamant or continuing to pressure protests will continue or call for a kind been. instigated more crop of people very seriously. he did say that the garment passed by systematically i mean they report and use that word systematically but they did systematic very rich in the operation to the . united states and china approved a big phase by face trade deal they want to cut tariffs on chinese goods with the same time boosting american farm exports to beijing it follows that long drawn out
2:05 pm
19 month trade war between the world's 2 largest economies is out is caleb maupin. 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 trump 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 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
2:06 pm
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 moneys unresolved economic and trade disputes all differences and promote stable growth of china's economic and trade relations given the downward pressure on the world economy now trump spoke up afterwards saying that essentially china had agreed to a number of structural changes and would be purchasing a u.s. agricultural products as well as energy and manufactured goods from also said that he was hoping to begin work on phase 2 of the agreement but he would want to do
2:07 pm
that immediately not wait until 2020 this trade war has been asking lading between the united states and china sense june of 28. again there's been an escalation of terror of 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 kaleb move to new york city. the agreement through why it's still too early though to hail any real success. is 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
2:08 pm
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 your tears this is exact same thing and trump was like no we demand ip protection we demand rights for an american companies in china you need to restructure your government to not handle private corporations he demand 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 legit lead on the table are literally purchases and rollback of tariffs so the journey is one of those to roll back as you say are we did we roll them all bartz or not all of them but all of them are all back so the sticking point of why this had to happen today aside from the fact that it was also some impeachment stuff going on right so you kind of take over the news cycle but aside from that as of sunday about $160000000000.00 worth of new tariffs are going to be added to chinese goods and the reason that trump and 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
2:09 pm
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 based is going to be eminent and we will see how phase one turns out. one in 24 children is conservative parties on the big historic tour of the u.k. for the win in the u.k. general election the province to put it in the north of england to beat his fellow party m.p.'s who are labor rivals to secure a big majority he started off i think it is voters to. i want the people of the northeast to know that we the conservative party and i will repay your trust 1st of all what are we going to do to rebuild it. to get brecht's it died are these really going to die did we have a deal ready to go it was do we get it in before christmas we've just been going
2:10 pm
over the timetable we could definitely get in before christmas and then we're out for january 31st so it was the tories biggest election win in more than 3 decades the prime minister earlier said it gives him a powerful mandate to deliver breaks in the poll mark the worst result of the labor party since the 1930 different pictures north of the border though the scottish national party was celebrating a landslide victory which has reignited 2 calls for a 2nd independence referendum and i discussed the election on his consequences correspondent daniel holcomb to. the 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 it so northern heartlands in the middle and all of 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 lot of people are saying on the question of brics it for a chance of winning with a very clear message get bricks it done it was very clear very simple it resonated
2:11 pm
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 of 2020 when boris johnson says 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 but if i ask we've been going until june 2022 negotiate this deal it's also going to be ratified of course by the $27.00 even by states if that doesn't happen the prospect of a new deal bricks come this time next year is that very much or table spoke in 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. kicking off even more nationalist parties have done fantastically well in this election i mean speaking of oil and the deputy leader. dogs lost his seat to the new can for the 1st time since 921 of ireland nationalists now outnumber unionist s.n.p. again
2:12 pm
a whole different kettle of fish certainly no disunity in scotland they were very clear they wanted to remain in the e.u. the s.n.p. has capitalized on that and made massive gains 48 seats won 8 percent increase last night we saw nicolas those in jubilant dancing in fact when the leader just wins and lost her seat this is what she had to say on independence for a friend of the 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 their future that mandy 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 office of prime minister and saying 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.
2:13 pm
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 it will be here earlier on so in the wake of the conservative clean up r.t. u.k. our sister channel discussed what it means for the all but inevitable breaks it now . it to all intents and purposes this election in became a bricks at election which in itself was a de facto referendum and therefore in that context it is some of the standard see that labor voters but those areas out. west bromwich outside of booming and embrace the conservative party in seemingly large majorities then than in the leafy suburbs the sorry i don't see a referendum taking place now you know if it's
2:14 pm
a case of ever wanting to rejoin the e.u. it will be as an outside a static from a position of greater weakness bracks it was probably because syces factor in most voters' minds but there were a few other issues 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 extreme 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 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. we have paid
2:15 pm
story in from europe now the german capital where local c. one aspect of everyday life is being iconic before the wrong reasons so that transport system is looking to consign that image to the history books of for applying for unesco world heritage status no less for the company in charge oakley also admits it's no fear of a crowding in a rude service and goes on to say proudly enough the transport system is one aspect of the city were burl it is still berlin despite rapid changes vangelis sepsis takes a closer look. 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 and eunice schools heritage list. booth and could decide to try to be called the must see him how it might be. done by law to teach to the public the berlin transit authority has applied for world
2:16 pm
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 on phones are designed is to decide. it 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 staff could be a little bit frosty. the education which. it's all fair the difference. it will be. some of the things it's all good for. so customer service is not really their thing and it's not mention the overcrowding and the long delays so we went around asking berliners what they think about their transit system and whether it should be included heritage list it's one of the oldest so i think
2:17 pm
you have to save it and to use it spinning great transportation to use but i don't know if it's exactly on taj mahal level or not because it's and 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 instruction with people already saying 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 to a bus by your driver or you're already limited space is being invaded on one other subways this could all be part of a world heritage experience eventual slips us for artsy. we'll keep you posted right 70 much more ahead of you something is going good enough to stay with us to

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 says the risk people expressed heightened fears about taking the drug after seeing the ads potentially leading to a void of hiv factions so the adverts placed by multiple law firms or gay or bisexual men to join a lawsuit against the drug maker claiming it has caused harmful side effects and facebook says these efforts don't violate their rules but their policy also states that in some cases they can be removed if an expert organization debunks their claims we spoke to matthew rose he's from the hiv advocacy organization health care p told us in his view facebook isn't doing enough here. 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
2:21 pm
a really powerful and really safe new prevention option their 1st exposure to this pale 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 throw 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 harm so it's a civil discourse and they until this is a democracy. agrees for a minister says he hopes that the new president of neighboring ukraine is going to act on these promises and improve the situation for ukrainians is an exclusive interview he gave to us pete is here to talk to length about the resolution to the

2:23 pm
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 at the station mechanisms launched within nato in order to be able to address the new kinds of challenges no question about calling nato brain dad that was i mean too much i think i definitely didn't the didn't agree with that part but but i mean. look and we have to understand that there are leaders who like to say a lot 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 was shown very clearly it's really interesting interview for you want to

thing for them to do is to implement boundary changes we've been to have a new commission to make the seats even even smaller in areas that labor could do better in i mean that's that's probably on the cards but he may be thinking of other things he may be thinking of changing the voting system so you have to go through various stages of id to actually be able to vote and that would harm labor in particular ways it's perhaps a party for him and for the people who backed him in the people who gave the money for his campaign they never want to see the threat of. democratic left wing labor party again john. famously the bullingdon club reputedly used to send their members around oxford to burning a 50 pound note in front of the homeless is that what britain is seriously looking forward to that kind of future i think that unfortunately i mean i'm from yorkshire .
