filipinos great again so in that sense there is this sense of personal solidarity and relates to people who are very much like you from the philippines trump were turn to washington and then the longest trip to asia by a u.s. president in more than a quarter century. when i joined by correspondent on a santos was in manila on a it's good to see you so trump and the meeting separately was the aim of that meeting where they're supposed to have a bilateral meeting to discuss economic ties and also counterterrorism measures but i have to tell you that you know this brewing bromance between the two world leaders is something that's wildly kind of wildly anticipated here we saw this bromance kind of starting dring the campaign period there was a lot of similarities between the two world leaders they're both around the seamy have much younger partners they both have an intolerance for dissent and they both
7:05 pm
have a distain for media you know didgeridoo was often called trump of the east and it was a title that he kind of welcomes he said that both trump and i are in the same we both like to curse all this bromance as you so i think put it aside the main focus of trump's visit to the philippines is the summit what can we expect from that. well definitely there's going to be a lot of talks about economic integration president to tara to has been emphasizing inclusive prosperity for the region and we're also hoping to see some more indication from the u.s. about what their foreign policy is going to be if you remember the predecessor of donald trump barack obama he had a clear foreign policy which is the pivot to southeast asia so the region is going to be eagerly looking at what this far if there's going to be a mention of this or policy or what stance and position the u.s.
7:06 pm

7:07 pm
with members of his conservative party this famished head called on catalyst to kick out separatists in next month's snap elections but he also urged business is business leaders not to turn their backs on the region the standoff shows no signs of abating on saturday hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets of basra loner to call for the release of its jailed political didas. following that story for us is correspondent michel. it's good to see attended a party meeting in barcelona ahead of elections in december what are the main issues that he addressed. more than a meeting it was actually the kickoff to the korea lection compay in for his partido pople are the conservative party he presented as the main candidate for the party it was a stereotype party event in a sealed off environment inside rather than in a public space and during his speech in his first appearance since this conflict
7:08 pm
started in barcelona in catalonia the region itself he has launched a vigorous attack on the independence leaders the pro independence movement itself he has called them criminals he has called them childish actually i think in his speech he was very much on pre-election mode already and he knows that the upcoming snap elections on the twenty first of december will be really difficult for his party in catalonia so very tough words from rahowa but we've seen hundreds of thousands of people on the streets for weeks now in barcelona but testing against the spanish government control is surely win over voters that to me it looked like he didn't even try today in his speech that didn't show any sign of reconciliation where he didn't try to bridge in between these two camps the pro independence. people as we have seen them again in high numbers out on the street

yesterday so he didn't seem to try and win win over any catalan voters actually today he was rather addressing his voters in the rest of spain staging himself as the defender of the fatherland of the one who stands for law and order and who will restore as he puts it normality in catalonia and in doing so for the rest of the entire country so i believe his strategy is more directed towards the rest of spain rather than really looking at the regional elections all right nischelle briefly roy's handling of the situation has been heavily criticized but what do you make of it. it's been criticised because of this harsh policy has line also because he has left it in the hands of the judges to solve a political dispute a conflict that's haunting the region for decades you could say and now we have

7:11 pm
talk about would really matters here is what matters the twenty five thousand people who are dying every day because of pollution while the current governor of california jerry brown is also a leading figure on climate action in the u.s. we caught up with him at the bond summit where he had a clear message for german automakers who have been dragging their feet on immobility he says the sector needs to move away from combustion engines because the future is electric. the big problem is vehicles trucks in cars that's over forty percent of our greenhouse gases and there we will get zero emission vehicles we want the german all of us to realize we were. a mission vehicles we know what those old diesel vehicles even if they fix the spillovers road we have to go to the new that's what china wants that's a killer for you want and together we are the biggest market in the world. let's
