during what could be difficult talks on thursday but his first day saw him receive a warm welcome to beijing despite him slayton the country on the campaign trail for its trade practices. stepped out of air force one onto a red carpeted staircase in contrast to last year's visit by braca bomber was forced to exit his plane from aloa door. and the five star treatment continued with president xi jinping personally escorting them on a tour of the forbidden city unesco world heritage site which was declared off limits to tourists for the day. also treated to chinese opera and acrobatics display. well trump has tweeted about the visit describing the day is unforgettable and as he began his beijing visit u.s. and chinese trade deals worth nine billion dollars china correspondent adrian brown has more. exactly a year to the day that he was voted into office president trump arrived in china
the country very savaged throughout the presidential campaign when he called china a currency manipulator and said that china was raping the u.s. economy all that though was forgotten on wednesday afternoon as president xi jinping and his wife a score to the trumps around the forbidden city one of the most popular tourist attractions in china a chance perhaps for president xi to remind donald trump the china was once the center of culture and civilization president xi very much wants china to be center stage in global affairs now top of the agenda of course is going to be north korea and the feeling that the united states believes china could be doing more to rein in its ally china will be pointing out that actually it's done a lot in the past few months to tighten the financial news around p.r. niang early next year north korean firms operating in china would have to cease business north korean workers would have to leave the country and of course china
has been enforcing u.n. sanctions against north korea trump wants to ensure that there's no backsliding by the chinese and of course there's the issue of the trade deficit the fact that china exports far more to the united states than the united states sends the other way also trump wants u.s. companies to have more access to the china market particularly tech companies like facebook and twitter who are still locked out of china it's very important that these two men get along because the decisions they make will ultimately affect all of us a previous stop on chance asia talwar south korea what to do about north korea dominated the visit kathy novak has more on this from sell. donald trump's day was supposed to start with a surprise visit to the d.m.z. the heavily fortified line separating northants. south korea but bad weather prevented what would have been his opportunity to deliver
a symbolic message to the north korean leader kim jong un so he used his speech at seoul's national assembly to address the man he called a tyrant and a cruel dictator. the weapons you're acquiring are not making you safer they are putting your regime in grave danger north korea is not the paradise your grandfather envisioned it is a hell that no person deserves. those he refrained at this time from referring to kim as little rocket men trying to painted a picture of a north korea likely to infuriate those in its government he called it a country ruled by a cult centered around the range to beliefs where people still die of hunger and are tortured in gulags and as the north korean government continues to pursue its nuclear ambitions trump has to this morning. this is a very different administration than the united states has had in the
past do not underestimate this and do not try. as he vowed america would not be intimidated and listed the u.s. military assets currently stationed around the korean peninsula protesters outside called for peace. look at him but i demand that the u.s. stop our threats on the korean peninsula just a fountain valleys of arms have researchers. trump says south korea has agreed to buy more u.s. military equipment a move he says will help close the trade deficit between the two nations it's the first time in more than twenty years that a u.s. president has addressed the national assembly the president monday and says he hopes donald trump state visit will mark a turning point in efforts to deescalate tensions with north korea. trump says that
begins with north korea stopping the development of its missile and nuclear program and in exchange we will offer a path to a much better future with a nod to south korean achievements from economic development to female golfers the speech was well received in the chamber likely very much less so across the border kathy novak al jazeera saw. back home there was some bad news for trump as democrat candidates beat republicans in a number of elections in states across the country democrats were elected as the governors of the genuine new jersey in the first major defeats for the republican party since trunk's win last year mike hanna reports from virginia. on the new governor of virginia is democratic ralph northam it's a major victory in a state where republicans hold of two to one majority in the legislature a blow to republican candidate. who received strong support from president trump
and a warning to republicans that the democrat threat could intensify in the crucial midterm elections next year. though there donald trump comes in a few days is the difference. no though you the republican campaign has been run at a grassroots level taking a leaf out of the trump playbook that led to his victory a year ago. that election indicated an antipathy among voters to traditional political leaders and in this campaign organizers maintained it was necessary to campaign on issues not individuals who are really surprisingly i just campaigning for it like republicans were democrats and were just saying please go on like what you believe in the single issues and i think people are really encouraged by that because they're see we actually care about the issues and not just the first it was the democrats too focused on energizing the voter base working on up. bottom up
rather than top down principle in gathering support not. do worse we have. more. there's no doubt that this democratic challenge is very different from those in the past and the virginia state elections two years ago more than forty republican candidates were unopposed this year democrats are contesting all but twelve of the seats this is a massive increase in political participation republicans maintain control of the state legislature but democrats made inroads into their majority people are talking about this is a wave of law that me tell you this is a tsunami. an indication perhaps of lessons have been learned from the massive defeat suffered a year ago and
a sign that public support from the sitting president could prove to be a political curse my kind of al-jazeera virginia. syria's army and its allies have surrounded and entered the eisel controlled town of alba kamel a katyn near the border with iraq its eye sells final stronghold in the region as video released by pro syrian government media shows fighting in the surrounding area on saturday a solid majority has more from. according to syrian media as well as hezbollah media sources syrian forces have surrounded the border town of become are the last remaining stronghold by isis fighters according to sources on the ground this is going to be a tough fight because isis fighters have been coming to this place from all sides not just the iraqi side of the border but from syrian town just far away as
