i mean just looking at live pictures of. the translation that's. indeed. how many hours of dialogue did we have. i believe that there has never been such close bonds intimately connecting at the leaders of both nations as we do now in the history of japan-u.s. alliance of more than half a century. in particular he received me with great hospitality last february on my visit to the u.s. at his villa in florida. it became my unforgettable memory that we were able to discuss a variety of global issues over so many hours quite frankly including several rounds of golf and it is my particular delight that this time i am able to welcome my dear friend president trump and my down melania trump to japan. this

9:19 am
press so we will accept questions from the p. two journalists respectively and please identify to whom and the question is addressed to either to the prime minister or to the president trump. so first is the japanese press person to speak up yes please. from n.h. . this is a question to mr. prime minister and present a tram i have agreed on maximizing the pressure toward the relinquishing of nuclear development my north korea mr trump is going to korea and china and then there is going to be an a big leaders a meeting said mr abbott what is your idea about the significance of this bilateral summit meeting on the other hand north korea is still fixing its attitude of not responding to the relinquishing of the nuclear development or what is necessary in
9:20 am
order to avoid any accident military confrontation. while japan u.s. alliance are being the foundation of the regional peace and prosperity precisely when japan us partner strongly the peace of this region becomes i shake up will come from that perspective i consider that this time we were able to reaffirm a strong bonds and ties between japan and the united states on this opportunity of the visit of which would present a tramp this was quite significant for the regional peace on the north korean situation between present trump and myself. we confirmed that we are together one hundred percent we will enhance the pressure that the entire international community exercises over north korea to the maximum extent by both japan and the united states collaborating and working toward china and russia.
9:21 am
but. dolan likes conflict. i don't like it after trump either. but north korea continues its provocation against the international community so we need to collaborate in the international community so that they change their policy we must exercise our pressure and from the north know that north korea will change our policy so please come to talk to us i think this is what is most important that we expect and that we have a complete agreement with the present trump and together with many countries i am sure that we share in the same thinking. also. free and open marriage order based upon the rule of law is the foundation of the stability and prosperity of the international community this time around as that first leg of his tour in
9:22 am
asia president. president and i were able to reaffirm that both countries will make their friends looking toward the pacific which is free and open very significant there will be. leaders meeting and. meeting in these meetings i'd like to take leadership in their driving of this kind of discussion so free and open in the pacific a strategy if any country would agree with this strategy with whatever country we can collaborate for the implementation of this strategy so we will continue to have partnership between japan and the united states so that we can contribute to jointly to the peace and stability of the region. sometimes some states first question steve holland. pardon me thank you sir in response to the texas shooting what policies would you
9:23 am
support to reduce these violent actions is going to intro the answer and secondly you spoke yesterday about the warmth of the north korean people what's your message to their leader kim jong un as you prepare to head to south korea tomorrow tomorrow if i can ask the prime i'm going to ask my minister a question as well could you respond to what the president said this morning that trade is not free and reciprocal what the united states thank you as far as the north korean people are concerned steve i think that these are great people there under a very repressive regime and i really think that ultimately i can tell you this that i hope it all works out better for everybody certainly would be better for north korea but it would be better for everybody so we hope that's going to take place as far as your second. question which is really the first part of your question i think that mental health is your problem
9:24 am
here and this was a very based on preliminary reports very deranged individual a lot of problems over a long period of time we have a lot of mental health problems in our country as do other countries but this isn't a gun situation i mean we could go into it but it's a little bit soon to go into it but fortunately somebody else had a gun that was shooting in the opposite direction otherwise it would have been as bad as it was it would have been much worse but this is a mental health problem at the highest level it's a very very sad event that save these are great people and a very very sad event but that's the way i view it thank you. from prison to truck. trade in the going to matter lateral issues we did discuss on the economic matter. how u.s.
9:25 am
and japanese economies a should be there is a dialogue going on between mr aczel and mr pence there there were two meetings are already so on the question of the economy together with the present a tramp and not only regarding their bilateral trade we would like to see the entire region of the year to civic high standard the rulemaking is something that we want to pursue so with both countries in this region we will make efforts to create an economic order of which is fair and effective. so that. regarding the both economies and mutually we would like to see the mutual development of both economies so in the united states already since the start of trump administration partly thanks to the japanese investment the seventeen
9:26 am
thousand jobs have been created in the united states. so all countries of the world are visibly the united states they make investment but japanese investment ranks in terms of job creation sell the economic relations between the two countries may develop further thereby creating jobs and thereby growing the economy so in creating both countries' economies i saw p. and say going to make dialogue a framework i would be quite relevant and we'd like to see a good outcome from that dialogue we'll go back to the japanese press for questions yes that please. some tech stuff from some other company i have a question to presidents trying. to reach the family members so you're watching the live pictures there from tokyo of that press conference between u.s. president donald trump and the japanese prime minister shinzo this is donald trump's first stop on his five country trip to asia let's get more now from
9:27 am
al-jazeera scott highlight who's been following this live press conference for us not surprisingly north korea and trade being the two big topics top of the agenda both leaders presenting a united front certainly on the north korean issue and their missile program is. absolutely there and you know when they talked about north korea they were both kind of use the same wording saying that all options are on the table the time for dialogue is over the time for pressure is now and what's interesting too they both brought up the need for russia and china become more to become more involved in that process and that process of applying pressure to the to the leadership in north korea one thing i found very interesting in this is a theme we've been hearing fairly recently by president trump he addressed and spoke about the people in north korea specifically and directly saying that there are good people it's the regime he said the leadership who are the bad people
9:28 am
driving them leading them on a path of. what they're in now of the end road so he interestingly is talking directly to the north korean people saying you know i think you're good people we think you're good people it's your leaders we think are the bad people and they want on more they didn't really get too much more specific about what they want to do with north korea but they said both sides said talk in the past the dialogue in the past hasn't worked the programs in north korea for both ballistic missiles the nuclear program has gone on unabated they say now more pressure exactly how they're going to put more pressure on the united states didn't get didn't get too specific but japan. and did they said prime minister shinzo are they said that they are going to have more unilateral sanctions against thirty five people and entities in north korea they're going to side exactly they're going to announce exactly who they are. meeting on tuesday but he said yes they're going to be further sanctions unilateral sanctions from japan on entities in north korea
9:29 am
from the american side they don't get too specific but again both saying more pressure needs to be applied to north korea dialogue in the past hasn't worked russia and china need to step up they need to do more and we're probably going to hear that as this trip goes on over the next several days because the leaders of both of those nations are going to be part of these conversations as we move forward scott hi there in tokyo scott thank you for that let's bring in quickly tomohiko taniguchi who was a special advisor to the cabinet and is now a professor at university graduate student joins us from tokyo professor tana gucci let's talk try it if we can because we just wrapped up the issue of north korea but let's talk trade president trump saying a few hours ago and he reiterated that in the press conference the trade is not free and it's not reciprocal so what do you think he meant by that. well i am by the way still there are special advisor to the of his cabinet yes on trade that's
9:30 am
going to be very much an important issue to both leaders present and she already. made a special arrangement whereby there dave really is vice president pants and deputy prime ministers are so are going to shoulder the prime responsibility to think about how to solve these issues in a very much for looking way the leaders at the press conference mentioned that areas should cover many new areas such as medicine and science and so on and so forth so it's not just about trade deficit united states has been the b. japan which is proportionately small but about many other future industries. and this is the second time that president trump and prime minister shinzo has met its i mean how would you characterize the relationship between both leaders i'm in charge of this on the campaign trail he was quite outspoken wasn't your gains japan about protectionism about imbalanced trade but both leaders now in this press
9:31 am
conference spoke about how strong and close the relationship is between both leaders. by choosing to go to president elect try. a decision to bring japan and she is about himself closer to the president of the united states should serve japan's national interest which by the way has been well understood and accepted by president trump as well so started hours there has been this incredibly good relationship called a press conference u.s. to parel a ship has always been good but i should say never because her house this relationship or liberation should be in this good. and when when trump arrived in japan he tried to reassure regional allies including japan that the military would have the
9:32 am
resources to keep peace and and defend freedom let me ask you how will that go down with ordinary people in japan what do they make of this. really is have lives together with the members of the west services for many many decades and i think the japanese safety and peace have been preserved and protected by actually using blood and tears shed by the u.s. personnel service personnel on top of grad i work there we have heard from government grants is going to be heard a reassurance to the collective across i think that the japanese have had. the united states. all right dr tom he code taniguchi in tokyo thank you very much indeed so you're watching live pictures from tokyo of that press conference between donald trump and the japanese prime minister shinzo both leaders talking about the close bond between japan and the united states the united front on north korea
9:33 am
there are more news of course at the top of the hour with my colleague agent finnigan up next here on al-jazeera it's fault lines thanks for watching live from . we're.
9:34 am
for. this is james jackson. because his expression here so it's impossible to know what's going through his mind at this moment just after he killed another person. this is the man who murdered timothy kaufman. james jackson didn't know kaufman who he was where he was from. he killed him for the one thing he did know about it. that he was a black man. late at night on march twentieth jackson's victim timothy kaufman found himself on this corner in manhattan just half a block from where he lived for twenty years. at sixty six and retired cop and made
9:35 am
a small amount of money by collecting cans and bottles to recycle. that night he was looking to a trash can on this corner when james jackson came up from behind and stabbed him multiple times before running off. bleeding cough and somehow managed to make his way to the police station around the corner. when he was taken to the hospital he was pronounced dead. when i heard it i just i cringed and just felt that knife you know thing would hurt me you know his purpose he said he come to kill many black men and see. his ear but you were pushing clark and her own women's new timothy kaufman since they were children growing up here in queens new york. oh that's being a fancy. as i see it yet i didn't tend to nag for taking pictures with celebrities and he didn't so much did they know him. that
9:36 am
check this out during the last fifteen years of his life timothy was a very frequent visitor to washington d.c. as he enjoyed attending the court congressional hearings and budget policy sessions off then. while he was collecting bottles and cans he would save his money and get a bus ticket and get on their bus and all of was a greyhound bus or whatever and go down to washington to go to capitol hill so he was in those stumble bob he was more the result he wasn't allowed he was about warning change. ok for the vet yes i will say he was something else this is his bio that he put on twitter. can and bottle recycler autograph collector in new york city and i would love to visit california and look at this man.
9:37 am
standing in line waiting to love america. is there is a clear quality of him so that you might miss the most. yes this time this. his his knowledge with him remembering. him china always teach himself and relate need to. tell next generation tell a younger generation that's right he was about each one teach one he always had something to the next to say to the next generation and that was important to him. the day after murdering timothy kaufman james jackson turned himself into police after yourself footage of themself on the news. jackson told police the kaufman to been a practice target and they intended to kill more black men. in court what did it feel like when thames murder came in and you saw that and yeah and
9:38 am
yet i had i'm not in my stomach. i wanted him to feel they gave me. in the community the way he came out chest out had a real proud when i seen him. i just started crying and i couldn't stop. colored his skin is dead deep you hate it that much. it's hard to believe. according to detectives a witness told them she heard kaufman say after jackson stabbed him why are you doing this what are you doing. this is what they handed out at the funeral in memory of timothy kaufman collar does not attack collar hate and prejudice unnatural the murder of timothy kaufman could seem random like an
9:39 am
isolated but the ideology of hate behind this killing seems to be growing. it was on display just a few months later when hundreds of white supremacist white nationalist and neo nazis gathered for a rally in charlottesville virginia. the come from all over the country to protest the removal of a confederate statute by local officials. clashes with anti-racist to miss traitors the next morning that the governor to declare a state of emergency. this force rally organizers to move to a park a few miles away. one of the things we wanted to understand was if the rhetoric of the country's new president donald trump had emboldened these groups media a lot of people like to kind of be like oh true it's trump's fall or trump the calls this was a truck was a megaphone that we picked up is the best not the smart of the internet is where we live and i'm moving us out of that thinking everyone you know you came out of here
9:40 am
getting off the couch as i first got that was a great white consciousness as well as a movement that's for a white and white people. listening to the leader speak gave us a window into the ideas that have drawn so many people here. now it's not a i never thought. now it's not over the idea that i would ever back down when the governor of the state of play or it's a state of emergency if they think that they don't understand what's in my heart they don't understand the all right they don't understand this entire movement the courage you showed today in defense of our people our heritage our our country. values our freedoms. always remain in my memory in charlottesville this is a first step toward making a realisation of something that trump alluded to earlier in the campaign which is this is the first step toward taking america back to yes.
9:41 am
we're here to talk about why genocide the divied deliberate and intentional displacement of the white race which is happening we love our people we love europe we love america we love white people and that's why we're here and there is nothing wrong with. just after the speech was finished james fields a neo nazi drove his car through a crowd of anti-racist demonstrators killing a young woman and injuring dozens of others. but.
9:42 am
were closely following the terrible events unfolded in charlottesville virginia. we condemn in the strongest possible terms. this egregious display of hatred bigotry and violence on many sides on many so. i think in many ways charlottesville is our worst fears realized right we just experienced the most racist campaign in modern history with donald trump and it had the effect of energizing pretty much every faction of the extreme right in the united states. happens. the the. treatment of the money. it's not surprising that this ended in violence right these are movements that are deeply connected to add domestic terrorism and to hate crimes the says
9:43 am
a completely kind of predictable thing. the right thing if you do that you are evil you cannot just go through the right you guys are you know many good mother was going to hate you it's hard to make sense of the violence in charlottesville and the way the hate and anger on display there is manifesting across the country. by government data shows that over half of all hate crimes go on reported we still don't know that hate crimes and bias incidents have risen over the past few years particularly those against the muslim community according to that b.-i. in two thousand and fifteen the last year federal data as available anti muslim crimes rose sixty seven percent from the previous year. or. not and.
9:44 am
that's part of a voicemail that was left at the small mosque in eugene oregon the man who left it called after he had already approached worshipers here one evening in may threatening to kill them. this is the first time in many years a person coming physically to the mosque and saying that he will kill muslims. so ok we'll learn also what do we say after that item is a member of the mosque in leeds classes for the children many of the kids who attend the mosque witnessed the man threatening to kill worshipers. he was arrested the next day after he threaten someone else in a park nearby he was released for time served after two months in jail is now out and free. now that he's out do you feel in danger again.
9:45 am
you know to be honest some some of the kids also a traumatized by. their words like three kids that were hearing this. he was claiming he has weapon and has bag. i i really can't imagine it you know one of my fears to be honest is well if you know the situation happens to me in front of my kids that can oppress and. and i feel helpless don't go play with them go see what they're doing. we talked about you know that if somebody that hates you we can't fight it with we focus on the actions implementing islam or the teachings of islam in our life and one of them is with dealing with hate. or you know dislike what we're going to do instead of hate. love each other and the love will change the people even after
9:46 am
a long time right. it's a peculiar thing though because most young kids don't have to be taught how to respond to hate i mean my kids go to summer camp and that's not a part of the curriculum hate crimes i've been on the rise unfortunately to be honest sujan has been a nice place it's been changing a little bit and being bullied in school or you know somewhere else is is becoming as a norm those days and teaching them how to respond is very important all right you know what i would be and that's what i would say that show a love and compassion tevye one face of all the hatred that's been happening lately . when you consider what happened here and what happened just up the road of portland on the train does it make you feel targeted as a community of course. you know when incidents come after
9:47 am
another it's reason is a real issue in the community. just a few weeks after the threat to gigi mosque two men were killed on a metro train in portland oregon when they tried to stop a man from yelling at two black girls one who was wearing his job. this is the man that killed them jeremy christian during his arraignment yet i'll never leave this time do you know. this place has become a memorial to the two men and the third who was wounded on may twenty fourth on that attack. to an active member of a group no he wasn't i mean he sort of floated in and now it's a he would show up at all right rallies those places will try to distance themselves from the extremists but they also bring them on board at the same time
9:48 am
on a top level brings in a lot of people who are kind of mainstream they just don't want to pay our taxes or their their pro-gun or you know they're sort of mainstream issues and then you go farther down and it becomes kind of an anti-government ideology and then it becomes an anti semitic ideology and at the very bottom there is sort of the timothy mcveigh's a belief that there is a need for a revolution a second american revolution and i think that's where jeremy christian was you call here or not all they do here he. is a danger from the groups or is it bubbling down to these individuals that are so much harder to try yeah i mean that's a that's a really important question because when they are organized and out as a group we can see them we can take their pictures we know who the players are it's the person who's sitting at home and find their laptop that is getting angrier and angrier at the world. the world of hate has changed there used to be organized hate groups that you became a member of and those folks are still there but their importance in the in the white supremacist counterculture has really dropped because of the internet where
9:49 am
people can kind of participate as a klan rally happening twenty four hours a day seven days a week online that you can drop into any time that you want. i'm not talking about. i'm talking about something. so the problem is that that echo chamber really becomes a magnification chamber and the moron in that world a more angry i get and the more limited my explanations of what's happening i have basically one explanation you know it's a conspiracy. i'm. and it's of these people are the good people and these people are bad people and you get this kind of very black and white thinking which is very appealing to young people especially young males and you get two things one is you get a rationale how the world works and who the bad people are and the second is you get an action plan you have to fight them. in the case of

james jackson after he was arrested he told a new york newspaper that he only shared his views online like that he believed quote the white race is being eroded one of the sites he specifically mentioned was the white supremacy the daily stormer. all of this raises the question what responsibility do tech companies have when it comes to dealing with hate speech online i think that the tech companies in general have not done enough to battle white supremacy on their networks white supremacists are using major platforms to get their ideas out there's nothing different about this than isis. we've been working with the tech companies to try to get them to take these issues more seriously and maybe now after charlottesville they well i don't know i don't know how many wake up calls you made on this. in the aftermath of charlottesville a number of sites including the daily storm or had their domain registrations

revoked. but on the world's largest social media site facebook there are deeper problems in the way hate speech can thrive with something like this which is a mockery of the murder of this black child they would take this down they didn't take it down for a very long time i reported it dozens of times and i think it came down eventually after several months. is the director of the center for media justice and an activist with black life matter in the bay area activists like makiya have been working to make tech companies understand how to recognize racism on their platforms how does facebook to find hate speech here i hear anything that directly attacks people based on what are known as the protected characteristics that seem straightforward is there a problem with yeah that's a problem with it because race means that. white is as protected
9:52 am
class as black was the problem is if we live in a society where everything protects white people and very few things protect black people making those two things equally protected doesn't work it actually over protects white people and under protects black people with this often translates to is people of color being censored by facebook for speaking out about racism while something like this is allowed to stay on face but you have black activists that say things like white supremacy is real i mean leslie mack her state her post says something like that right and her post was taken down and she was banned. algorithms are programmed by human beings and human beings are not race neutral make america right again you could write your own make america this crosses a line for example this is the kind of thing that i would and want to report.

what's the message to you out of the photo make a wiring and yeah get rid of me i don't belong here i don't have the rights to live here and by any means necessary they're going to make sure i don't feel welcome. or. call for violence explicitly but when you say make america white again how exactly do you plan on doing that. it could be tempting to see all of this is soley related to donald trump. but it's more that the president has tapped into something that's been brewing for much longer two thousand and fourteen is when black last matter really began to take root. and that is when i think we began to see some real backlash. in the year two thousand the census bureau announced for the first time ever that white people would be a minority at that time they said twenty forty two i think the date is somewhere
9:54 am
around there and that's the moment base of the when we saw the number of hate groups in the united states start to rise that rise as reflected in attacks from the past decade. liquid in the you not see killed six people at a sick temple wisconsin two thousand and twelve. and in two thousand and fourteen when a white supremacist killed three people outside a jewish retirement center. and in two thousand and fifteen when dylan roof going down nine african-americans in a church in charleston south carolina. overall from two thousand and one of til the end of last year there were sixty two attacks in the u.s. by far right violent extremists according to government data. and in the same time period there were twenty three attacks by quote unquote radical islamist violent extremists despite that since taking office trapes cut funding for groups that work to combat white supremacist and right wing violence it's not just trump who hasn't been serious enough about white supremacist domestic terrorism during the bush

years you know there was obviously this intense refocusing on radical islam i mean more than three thousand people died at the twin towers and you can understand why that would be what the bush administration did was completely drop the efforts that were put in place after oklahoma city to address white supremacy and kind of militia violence. the thing that makes it more problematic i would argue then radical islam. in the united states context i'm not talking about overseas is white supremacy is indigenous to this country it was founded on white supremacy we fought a civil war on white supremacy our first domestic terrorist group was the ku klux klan that was set up after the civil war ended nine hundred sixty five so this is an idea that's not going anywhere. after charlottesville polling showed that the majority of people said that they didn't agree with the views of white supremacist or near nazis. but almost forty percent still said that they felt like white people
9:56 am
were under attack in the u.s. and almost a third said that white european heritage needed to be protected in america ready oh you know you're not what you call you know young people with great young all right so you know it's all good quality good enough that it was a don't want to do it on that part of the white country and for you know michel that you know that country right right you're going to present this country and it's terrible and you can go back to africa like where all the good your home countries are peace but there's a whole which is i don't know what that is which is up to the moment when i think writing like you know you know what i'm going on right now and there is a constant in america which is changing our nation of immigrants we're changing in terms of our demographic population we're always going through this change and the ability to manage that change is key to this it's either exciting and it adds a little. i'm going i know i'm.

not thinking. about where they belong. but it's also manifesting in ways that are less obvious the rallies like charlottesville there seems to be a broader under raveling of civility happening in smaller ways across the country people just feel like it's it's open season now on anybody that doesn't fit their picture of who. america supposed to be. i said i said in scuse me when you're not mouthpiece donald trump is making it so that i think this deep abiding resentment that i think has been brewing since the civil war this is not let the new. muslims. may be in jail. now and reaction to whatever small progressive

wins they think will get under obama it has flourished it is full of full fledged raging fire you know just like a piece of me. talking about stuff like if you're normal. i'm very but donald trump opened the door to isn't just hate hate was there he opened the door to turning that into a physical reality as a lot of millions of people. would do a lot to do from here you know will cain we do from here. though james jackson has been charge for taking their friend's wife portion curl told us that they plan on going to every court appearance that they can until the senate to make sure the court knows the timothy coffin was loved and that they want justice for him that's all we can do make sure you get justice and. try to be bred some my dad happened
