10:04 pm
to hand over parts of civilian rule they're not happy with the military at least a dozen protesters have been injured over the past 6 hours because of confrontation between the rapid support forces and the protest the protesters are saying that the rapid support force of the paramilitary group which has been integrated into the military after the ousting of president i'm going to show you tried to move some of their barricades and fire and fired live ammunition at them and that's something they're not happy with and they're saying that they will protect the revolution no matter what hit us with a certain color same thinking. now global markets have plunged as the trade war between the world's 2 biggest economies escalates beijing as announced it's raising tariffs on $60000000000.00 worth of american imports starting on june the 1st in response to u.s. president donald trump's decision on friday to double duties on chinese products
10:05 pm
worth $200000000000.00 the retaliatory measures are raising fears of a prolonged trade war we'll have more on the market reaction from gabriel as ondo in new york in a moment 1st to our white house correspondent kimberly halkett kimberly. president trump's been speaking in the last few minutes of bout china's latest types announcements what did he have to say. yeah well there's been much made about the impact on the american consumer with the sort of retaliatory tariffs that have been put in place by china in the last few hours and for the 1st time we've had reaction from the u.s. president as he sat down with hungry sleeker in the oval office in fact he's downplaying that impact saying that some retaliation by china is fine in this escalating trade dispute he also claims that tens of billions in tariffs are being taken into the coffers now there is some dispute about that in the united states
10:06 pm
again that the consumer could end up paying a lot of this but overall donald trump says that he loves the position the united states is in right now and says he thinks that everything is working very well now donald trump is also threatened that there could be even more tariffs placed by the united states on chinese goods that would certainly be a marked escalation in this trade war and he also is criticizing china saying that they're backtracking that they were very close to a deal between the 2 sides late last week but it was china that walked away so he's pointing the fingers even as he says he's looking forward to meeting with chinese president xi to try and resolve the issues. well the reaction is very simple china has been taking advantage of the united states for many many years i'm not just talking about doing the obama administration you can go back long before that it's been taken out 4 $15600000000000.00 a year out of the united states and we can't let that happen we're diverse strong
10:07 pm
position our economy's been very powerful there's has not been we've gone up a lot since our great election in 2016. if you look at the numbers they've gone down quite a bit we're dealing with them we have a very good relationship maybe something will happen we're going to be meeting as you know at the g. 20 in japan and that will be i think probably a very fruitful meeting. so that g 20 meeting set to take place in japan where the 2 leaders could try to work out some of their differences taking place next month in the midst of all of this well there is quite a bit of nervousness here in the united states about the escalating trade war there is some agreement that for many many years china has not been abiding by global trade rules at the same time given the fact that this now is escalating to the point where many consumers will feel the higher costs in terms of everyday products
10:08 pm
they buy everything from shampoo to conditioners there is concern that this is going to further exacerbate some of the tensions between the 2 largest economies in the world could be how could life in the white house for us thank you let's take from the white house to the new york stock exchange and speak to. him gave the markets a not happy with this idea of a prolonged trade war although. yeah they sure aren't and we really saw that on wall street today at the new york stock exchange the dow at one point on monday about midday here eastern time was down over 700 points and now it's right now it's just a little over $500.00 so certainly it's been terrible day on wall street and this could end up at the end of the trading day which is about an hour away could be the worst day since about january 3rd or so now what's striking about this is a couple things but number one is i've been saying this all day but it's worth bear
10:09 pm
barry pedia again is that how many sectors are being hit here apple the world's biggest technology company down 5 percent about 80 to 85 percent of apple's products are made in china so you can see why that company's taking a huge hit boeing the world's or one of the world's biggest manufacturers of airplanes aeronautics company down 4 percent and caterpillar which is one of the world's biggest makers of heavy machinery and equipment down 4 at 1.5 percent as well so you're seeing all these sectors being hit and hit hard all 30 companies on the dow. of all been in the red most of the entire day now just taking a step back here for a 2nd if you're sitting around the world saying well how is this affecting me this is probably how and this is why perhaps you should worry as one wall street trader said today on monday he said the longer this trade dispute goes on between china
10:10 pm
and the united states and the more severe that it becomes as it is now he says global growth simply comes down so what we're seeing now is a lot of traders saying we don't know if this is going to get resolved and it could see potentially this grow into. mark felt around the world potentially the longer this goes on this disputes been going on between china in the united states for all well over a year now you. ask yourself why are the markets really feeling it today on monday the answer is because the last few months wall street the markets have been saying we have confidence that a deal will get done i think when the end of today happens when the end of monday is finally written but the headline will probably be markets no longer have confidence that a deal could be could get done there is now real worry that what if a deal doesn't get done i think that's why you're seeing the markets doing what they are on monday all right kate in new york thank you european nations are calling for restraint from both the united states and iran as tensions continue to
10:11 pm
escalate over the iran nuclear deal the plea came as u.s. secretary of state mike pompei paid a surprise visit to brussels where he crashed a meeting of the foreign ministers who were discussing iran this is the giant american aircraft carrier the u.s.s. abraham lincoln steamed into the gulf supported by land based b. 52 heavy bombers adding to the tension saudi arabia says 2 supertankers showed job to take saudi oil to the u.s. have been sabotaged off the coast of the united arab emirates michael heard that very clearly today from from us not only from myself but also from the other ministers of the states that. we are living in a crucial delicate moment where. the most relevant. attitude to take the most responsible attitude to take is and legally should be and
10:12 pm
that of maximum maximum restraint avoiding any escalation. well under serious natasha bottlers following developments for us in brussels and natasha do we now have any idea what came out of this meeting between those e.u. foreign ministers and might pompei or that he saw robert brutally crushed. that's why i think if the u.s. secretary of state might pompei was hoping to try and persuade the e.u. leaders to drop their support for the 2015 iran nuclear deal or at least we can they're resolved to support it then he would have left disappointed because as you heard there from the e.u. foreign policy chief frederica model more green e.u. member states still feel very much that they are committed to the deal they say that it is the best deal there is out there in terms of trying to safeguard and ensure regional security in fact earlier in the day we also heard from the german
10:13 pm
foreign minister heiko mass who said this deal is all apparent preventing iran from having nuclear weapons more greeny also calling on both iran and the u.s. to try and deescalate tensions she called for return to calm she said look everybody has to talk more there needs to be more discussion we need to definitely calm the situation she also called on iran to continue complying with the deal that perhaps comes after last week when tehran indicated that it could suspend some of its commitments to the 2015 deal unless you leaders come up with some way of trying to shield the iranian economy from the u.s. sanctions the u.s. of course pulled out of this deal one year ago the e.u. has been battling has been fighting to try and save it might pump a 0 came as you said almost crashed this you and a meeting on iran it was an visit he had been on his way to moscow he had hoped he had come here to talk about iran and the growing threats the u.s.
10:14 pm
