10:08 pm
evacuation order was weeks in the making and done in full consultation with turkey. >> the decision to do this, first of all, wasn't taken lightly. it was done after careful thought and consideration and interagency coordination, i might add. i think it's our result of ongoing assessment of security conditions in turkey and in recognition with the threat environment and in adoan that from a regional perspective. >> while it applies to families of u.s. government employees and military dependents, the state department issued a general travel warning for any americans in turkey. it cited increased threats from terrorist groups throughout turkey, noting that foreign and u.s. tourists have been explicitly targeted and urging everyone to avoid visiting southeastern turkey, especially areas near the syrian border. the departure of u.s. dependents from turkey comes as officials travel to washington for a

10:21 pm
will be from japan's neighbors given the increased tensions that already exist with north korea's weapons testing and china's own military expansion. for many in japan, the real problem will come if the lives of japanese soldiers are lost on foreign soil as a result of this change. a national trauma only previous generations endured. rob mcbride, al jazeera, tokyo. seven people were wounded in a grenade attack on a police bus in burundi. they have seen a string of a violent attacks since the president decided to run for a third term in defiance of the constitution. reuters is reporting the eu plans to cut back funding for the contingent in somalia in an effort to force the president into talks with opposition leaders. tu tuz ya has 200 young

10:29 pm
10:30 pm
10:31 pm
welcome back to al jazeera america. i'm antonio mora. in this half hour of international news, the satirical video creating political discord between germany and turkey. donald trump has been vague about the details of his likely policies if he were to win the white house. lpts of his foreign policy beyond building a wall along the u.s.-mexican border are beginning to come out. alan fisher has the in context report. >> reporter: from the first moments of his campaign. >> i will build a great, great wall on the southern border and i will have mexico pay for the wall. mark my words. >> reporter: donald trump talked about how he will change u.s. reegss with the rest of the world. several months in he gave more detail how foreign policy would look under president trump. in an interview with "the new york times" he revealed he would renegotiate a long-standing
10:32 pm
security pact with japan saying the u.s. needs better terms. he would cut oil purchases from the saudi arabia and he would be open to allowing japan and south korea to develop nuclear weapons and withdraw nor troops unless they pay more for deployment. trump knows the first step but hasn't thought about step two or three. >> he doesn't have a cost analysis for foreign policy, which many people applaud. he has a win/loss approach to foreign policy. if america wins, somebody else has to lose. if someone else wins american is losing. that's concerning when we talk about international cooperation on any issue. >> trump says he won't give many details he would do in office. he sees unpredictability as a strength and he challenges recent republican party thinking. he's not into spreading democracy or international
10:33 pm
allianc alliances. >> the united nations is not a friend of democracy. it's not a friend to freedom. it's not a friend even to the united states of america where as you know it has its home. >> he has tapped into the raw emotions of the american public. >> he's been skillful in tapping into certain emotions and sentiments when it comes to the american public and foreign policy. i mean, how many average american voters know the new wranss the islamic state fight, but they're concerned about terrorism and afraid. we've seen levels of anxiety in the united states spike to levels we haven't seen since post-9/11. when it comes to tapping into the emotion, he's very smart. >> reporter: trump will be forced to give more details. when asked who his top adviser is, he replied several times, well, it's me. alan fisher, al jazeera, washington. the former head of the cia
10:34 pm
and the nsa has some harsh words for donald trump appearing on al jazeera general michael hayden said trump's rhetoric on muslims is helping isil further its cause. has donald trump become a recruiting sergeant for groups like al qaeda? >> here's the basic issuing, all right? the fundamental narrative of isis, al qaeda and al shabaab and so on is there's undying an nitty between islam and the western world. when mr. trump says some of the things they have said, they all hate us. we shouldn't let those people in our country. what he did is underscore and underpin the fundamentals of the narrative of undying am nitty. >> hayden also said ted cruz's similar comments on muslims on dangerous. you can see the full interview at front.
10:35 pm
joining us now is roger cohen, a veteran foreign correspondent and op-ed columnist for the paper. he wrote a piece entitled "trump's new world disorder." it's clear the underpinning to his foreign policy fill loss see is the u.s. is taken advantage of and the country is no longer in the position of financial power. it used to be to be the world's policemen and fill lantist. does he not have a point? >> he's trying to argue that the united states is penniless. the united states has one of the highest per capita incomes in the world. the united states has financial problems, but it's not broke. he's saying extremely risky things. running the world is not the same as making business deals. sure, you want to make a good deal where you can, but losing
10:36 pm
global security and global peace of the last 70-plus years would seem to me to be a ripple for everybody. not just for the united states. >> as we heard in fisher's piece, what trump is saying does appeal to some raw emotions among americans and the various constituencies. there's a growing number of use isolationists and extreme who like what they say: do you think this could be a winner for him politically? >> well, look, he is doing very well politically. he's the most likely candidate to secure the republican nomination at this point. there is no question that we are not any longer in 1989 or the end of the cold war, the united states is weaker than it was, and there are power shifts. american allies have to pay more, contribute more, and i'm
10:37 pm
talking about not only european allies but allies in the middle east. just because a populist message is resonating doesn't mean we should throw out the baby with the bath water. tax americana has worked, but we have not had nuclear armageddon and nothing that resembles world war i or world war ii since 1935. that's because of the united states has concluded alliances around the world and set up a security architecture or framework that has held. donald trump is essentially proposing that it be trashed. ij we should be worried about that. >> looking at the specific suggestions, he doesn't seem to be aware of his own contradictions. nato is obvious, but he criticizing american policy to contain putin. >> that's a very obvious
10:38 pm
contradiction. he's also ignorant. he said that germany has done nothing about the complicate in ukraine. germany has been the prime mover in establishing sanctions and is very much involved in trying to bring a measure of peace to him through the minx process. what donald trump says is a mixture of red rick, popularist rhetoric and a great deal of ignorance. of course as i wrote in the column at a time when president putin is flexing his muscles all over the place from ukraine to syria, it is determined to demonstrate that russia is a major player, once again, on the world stage. in many respects nato is more revel today than it has been at any time since the end of the cold war. >> doesn't he have a point,
10:39 pm
though? nato might need to do shifting the mission because terrorist is a big deal, obviously, in europe and the middle east and nato doesn't have a special miss to address that. >> nato is an institution that serves many purposes. yes, it was set up to counter the soviet union. it's done many other things since. what it does is cement the united states as a european power. it cements the american presence in europe and that alone with the development of the european un brought about a hold and freeze. to say that we need a separate new organization to confront terror i think is a little misguided. is there some kind of basic point to some of the things he says? >> yes. i mean, i just hot it. he's overpaying and other allies aren't contributing nub. the west needs to refocus on the biggest threat today.
10:40 pm
it's all said in such a hodgepodge of contradictory and incoherent phrases. you know, he rambles on. he talked for 100 minutes said "the new york times." inco-harens is the name of the game with donald trump. maybe he would argument that's part of cultivating the unpredictability that he says would be a quality of his presidency. >> it was the trouble with keeping everybody too much on their toes. it's unpredictable things that can happen. that's dangerous. you need a core degree of predictability. >> you mentioned how nato allowed the u.s. to cement its presence in europe. last night he questioned how worthwhile american bases are abroad in asia and in europe. he wants to project u.s. power,
10:41 pm
but then he argues to pull back. >> that's consistents consistent with what he's saying. the far-flung gair sons have done so much to cement. that is the architecture global security right now and donald trump proposes that that be dismembered. so the fact that he's saying these overseas bases could go is at least consistent. it's consistents with that message, because he thinks the united states is being ripped off. global affairs are not a business deal. the art of the deal is not enough. you need a fundamental architecture for global security. we know what its absence can bring about. we saw it in 1914 and 1939. in donald trump is serious about wanting to dismantle all that,
10:42 pm
then he needs to put forward at least a semi-serious proposal as to what would take its place. >> the former head of the nsa and cia michael hayden told al jazeera he described trump as a recruiting sergeant for isil and al qaeda because of his inflammatory anti-muslim comments. it is hurting america in that way. >> reporter: yeah, i would agree with michael hayden. i think to make the comments has made about keeping -- setting a moratorium on the entry of muslims into the united states is contradictory to everything this country stands for. it's inflammatory, and it reinforces those who make the argument that the west is anti-muslim. therefore, yes, it is a recruit tool. this is a very strange kind of foreign policy team he sketched
10:43 pm
out. i don't know a lot about any of these people, but i did note that a couple of the names have been associated with the totally far-fetched and ridiculous notion that muslims in the united states are trying to establish sharia law across america. i mean, this is absolute far-fetched, ridiculous gobbledegook. if donald trump is buying into that kind of low-level, inflammatory gobble debook in his foreign policy team than it is along with other proposals and suggestions in the process of making the world a much more dangerous place. >> on that point, is that part of the problem here? that he's not -- doesn't seem to be thinking about the consequences of some of the actions that he's calling for. talking about japan and south korea and calls for them to pay more for u.s. troops stationed
10:44 pm
there. he probably has a point. the u.s. burden there has grown as well as in nato. as you mentioned is one of the solutions for japan and south korea to become nuclear powers, what could that lead to in the far east when it comes to escalation with china? >> look, antonio, the united states does bear a burden, but what price do you put on global peace? it's not a real estate deal. it's not like boying a property on the jersey shore. the geopolitics of east asia are the equivalent of buying a casino and las vegas and trying to get the best deal on that. trrp there are two separate distinct animals. in my view what has ensured china's rise up to now has been peaceful. it's been in europe with the presence of the united states as an asian power and offsetting power committed to the defense of japan and in alliances with
10:45 pm
nation he is like australia and developing growing friendships with countries like vietnam that worry about the rapid rise of china. so, again, to say that japan could go nuclear or that we could get out of the korean peninsula, this is high risk. high risk stuff. that's the question, no, i don't think donald trump taking them on board. he's focused on something else. he's focused on becoming the next president of the united states, and for now he's prepared to indulge in whatever works to get there. >> roger cohen of the new york tiem times, always good to get your insights on the world. thank you. >> thank you, antonio. donald trump is standing by his campaign manager after he was charged with battery in
10:46 pm
connection with a run-in with a reporter. he released video. fields was trying to ask trump a question following an event yerlier this more. it showing cory land ski being pulled away. federal officials say more than 330 people have been detained by immigration agents over the past three months, some of them are teen taken ijers that came to the country illegally. he has the story of two teens trapped by red type. >> reporter: at this georgia church a special prayer for someone who can't be here. kimberly chavez's family holds hands hoping she will come home. we spoke with chavez from the tee tension whether where she's being held. the 19-year-old never imagined immigration officials would coop her up one saturday morning on her way to school. >> what have the last two weeks been like? >> it's very sad.
