e.u. states will be able to invest in joint military projects and develop and deploy joint armed forces. the philippines and president. crew need for u.s. president trump no after the love song what do you two strong on leaders in their first ever meeting what do they talk about iran but both of them have a president who they consider as not their best friend barack obama tonight from the bullies pulpit of power the issues that they would like to forget the grudges that they can't i'm burnt off in berlin this is the day. there was no mention of human rights it was no mention of action because you things . we want our partners in the region to be strong independent and satellites to
know one. relationship appears to be very warm and they friendly. we've had a great relationship this is been very successful. with president that that they do we most of the explaining. also coming up america's greenest governors on how to terminate any trump threat to the paris climate agreement. but we should take politics out of the whole thing and do what is right the fundamental message it bawn that we have come to deliver is that donald trump cannot stop us in this is the most important thing that we wanted the world to know and here. we begin the day in asia with america first everything else a distant second u.s. president donald trump is wrapping up his first trip to asia it has been a marathon two weeks of red carpets state dinners compliments aplenty and
criticisms she went far between and china and the philippines the world saw a u.s. president respectful perhaps even deferential to men he considers to be his strong arm equals yet the leader of the free world said nothing about human rights abuses in china or reports that do tear taze drug war has allowed police to kill thousands with impunity or the big takeaway here u.s. president trump has told asia america is open for business we're closed if you have any complaints. at a gathering swirling with controversy a moment that revealed a feared president's softer side. rhetoric a detective pulled out all the stops at
a gala to open the summit on sunday. on the. good news is that the orders of the monday will be noted state. that some say detectives not the only one hitting the wrong notes ahead of the summit filipino rights groups urged trump to confront attack take over his war on drugs a crackdown that's left thousands dead over the past year. but if there was any criticism from trunk it was not on display in manila trump showered his host a self-proclaimed killer with compliments. and i want to thank you for your incredible hospitality and the show last night the talent at that show i assume mostly from the philippines was fantastic thank you. the camaraderie did not go down well with everyone police used water cannon to scare off angry protesters.
we believe that that meeting without having any benefits for the filipino people at the diner or send the human rights situation in the philippines and drag it would be easier for them to spot they could not but it could have been shocking the white house said the two men's meeting focused on trade and fighting the so-called islamic state it said human rights came up briefly during discussions on the philippines fight against illegal drugs. i'm joined now at the big table by a tyson barker he's director of the aspen institute here in berlin he also worked at the u.s. state department is good to have you back on the show i'd like to start with the spokesperson for mr du charity what he said today about how both presidents were able to find something that they have in common take a listen the. relationship appears to be very warm and very friendly. they've been very kind be it in their dealings and it's very apparent that both of
them have a person who they consider as not their best friend they have similar feelings towards u.s. president barack obama. so what is that is that the ghost of the rock obama in the heads of these two presidents i mean why is that even a subject of a midi like this i mean you know i think that this is an artful way of saying that they have a lot of issues in common beyond just the antipathy to the previous president they're both people who believe in strongly executives that sometimes take and would like to take in the case of detect a do take extrajudicial measures in the enforcement of law in order polybius measures would not it's something for the filipino courts to work out of course but that is been a heavy criticism of the international human rights community and civil society in the philippines there is a sense that trump which is he had that kind of ability in the execution of his own
counterterrorism and law enforcement policy at home you know he does feel a little bit constrained by these strong independent in institutions at home and that's something of their really conveyed spirits do you think you look at someone like you territory or even the chinese president with a little bit of envy i mean i think that that could be the case you know he clearly feels a level of personal comfort with these type of people and the reason is because he brings into the presidency an experience from the private sector his experience where a kind of authoritarianism was not only accepted but was kind of his means of management that's right and so he sees that in the public sphere and he says why can't i create that he has of course this pesky long developed system of norms that independent institutions in the united states first and foremost the constitution that does constrain that kind of action. staying kind of with the bully mentality
for a moment would you consider what trump and the north korean leader kim jong il and what they've been trading in the last couple of days after the north korean foreign ministry called trump and i'm quoting here and owed a lunatic. the u.s. president hit back on the show you what he tweeted he wrote why would kim jong un insult me by calling me old when i would never call him short in fact oh well i try so hard to be his friend and maybe some day that will happen. well the first thing i would say is clearly president trump is taking advantage of the two hundred eighty character limit that he now has the four hundred one hundred forty characters but you know talking about this kind of personal relationship i'd like these authoritarians to be my friend you know this goes back to vladimir putin he said something very similar i mean the truth is is that these personal insults are kind of ephemera i mean it's rhetorical ephemera the danger here is in the
policy and the escalation the good thing we see in the case of this visit is although there have been maneuvers that have taken place by aircraft carriers in the region they do have the support and full backing of u.s. allies japan south korea and australia so that's a good sign i think we should be careful to get too distracted by the name calling yeah exactly i mean it's amazing in itself that there is this name calling going on but when you look at the entire trip is there anything of substance that was achieved i mean can the president take something you know in his pocket back home and say look this is what i got well i mean this is in his kind of style he has said he will reveal the big prize once he returns and we don't know what that big prize would be there have been some cosmetic economic agreement deals signed procurement deals in china but the real takeaway from this trip of course is the reception of u.s. leadership particularly in the transpacific partnership those eleven countries are
going to move forward without the united states and then the role that china has played you know they have positioned themselves basically to be the guarantor of the liberal and that means open market you know free trade order they say we believe in multilateralism we believe in rule of law and as the u.s. response we're going to take that place do you think that trump has just left asia and has left the message america is where transactions are were business your human rights abuses are no that's that's been a big part of his message just consistently for the past. and months i think everybody needs to recognize that democracy and values are not our deemphasized in this administration to the favor of you know economic policy good deals and what he sees as u.s. security so i can barter with the aspen institute's here in berlin as always thank you very much thank you. the
terror that engulfed paris on this night two years ago one hundred thirty people died in coordinated attacks across the french capital it was the deadliest attack ever on french soil correspondent elizabeth was one of the first to report to the world about the chaos and the horror of that night. but from the reaction all day great you know what to say we don't know whether this is terrorism well over the lobbying of greeny never stop the call to filter. they're putting paid to this kind of equivocation. the hostage taking it very obvious that the attack took all the way. the weapon if you. know hunting weapons but. the feeling is that this is the kind of attack that actually the five security services were waiting for. this is why so many public places school official
buildings embassies are being protected in paris and have been hit in january unfortunately it seems that it has finally happened tonight. it's still difficult to listen in to remember the evening we're joined now by correspondent elizabeth. cohen is about it's good to have you on the show your assessment and your assessment so early that evening was unfortunately spot on there really was a feeling in france that an attack of that magnitude was inevitable wasn't there yes this is the show you do a killing we knew we were latino. that had been threats that had been taking anybody not taking him seriously he was injured actually and i'm not condemning anyone because that actually was great enough to. take him to try these people but
was not found out in time was exactly when they would. we've heard a lot in the last two years about the permanent changes in france as a result of the but the attacks what in your opinion what has changed per minute. strangely enough some things that the split feeling in this country then where you will find feet people in the country and i think there are half and half who think that the chance the country has changed and other people who will think the country has not changed enough because we're still not facing this in the sort of mature way say life is different and this is a state of wool and there's an element of yes this is going to happen to us that's what yes we are now used to having soldiers in the streets and the soldiers themselves being overused or exhausted because there aren't enough of them at the same time we muddle through and there's a kind of disconnect between the sort of grand the great game of foreign policy
which was played by miss you a lot as laid down by it was your medical and the feelings of every day french people who do not think that the enemy is being named . and what about the role of news here my corner was was his rise to power and the changes that he's made in the walls there was that all enabled by the attacks two years ago. when he made the change he would not have thought of that change himself because we had an emergency law and some of that was passed into into all the way the patriot act was was passed into law in america so that. efficient fight against terrorism was was made possible in france and to be quite honest there have been protests about the palace given to the pretty east but you will find a broad majority well the youngest of a cause majority to say we understand that this is completely necessary and this is
what has to happen. pretty easy to that. i mean i have to ask you when you know when you look at the reports from two years ago when you you hear what and how you were reporting the events that night what goes through your mind when you when you think back to that night two years ago when all that's happened sense. you know you get back to this feeling in which you feel that you're under attack and. i think we actually are constantly under attack and there have been attempts that have been stopped and we don't even know. but certainly that was also the sort of feeling that the nation was was holding together and i'm afraid that the nation now is not holding together the way we did after shaadi of doing away with it after the botak law and i would i would place actually the movement when we stop being all of one mind at the time
when almost simultaneously you had the attack that nice with a with a truck. rammed into the crowd and killed about eighty people and the attack against all the how mel this priest. who served was by a young man who'd grown up next door and now the whole thing became complicated and muddled and politicians say you've got you've got to say that this is a home bride you cannot and we got to pay very attention that we do not turn into you know a nation of intolerant people and i think that the incumbent feeling of a majority of the french is we're not naming things anymore. he's a bit more correspondent in paris on this but we appreciate your time tonight and we appreciate you sharing your memories and your insights from a fateful night two years ago in paris thank you.
well france has been remembering the victims of those attacks on paris two years ago for its president in my new micron's spend considerable time today meeting with the survivors mccrone and former president francois hollande and then released balloons into the air in honor of the one hundred thirty people who died in the multiple attacks the american rock in the rose of death metal gave a surprise concert but the lead singer at times appeared overcome by emotion the group's concert at the back to the theater exactly two years ago turned into a bloodbath when islamic extremists stormed the hall. where the attacks in paris two years ago they sent shock waves across the country and the world but the impact was greatest for those who were there and lived to tell about it w. spoke to one survivor of the but to clan massacre on a fateful night that will always reach into his future.
whenever christopher modahl walks past this place the memories come flooding back what happened here on nov thirteenth two thousand and fifteen changed his life forever ever since that day the battle plan has taken on a new meaning for him. i'm very strongly attached to this place because it's in a good way. it's as if the better class had a soul and protected me so i like coming here because it's reassuring. and makes me think and remember what happened this you know was on the so there. was stuff barricaded himself into a room behind the stage when the terrorists started shooting that decision saved his life he was at the concert with two friends one of them died during the attack he still finds it difficult talking about what happened and was haunted by what he had experienced for months after what's this question. dramatic stress disorder.
but i was incredibly tense and every little sound made me jump. i was playing by flashbacks and kept seeing images from that night hearing the sounds and smelling those horrible smells like apologetic. kristoff went to therapy to help him come to terms with his experience instead of shutting himself away at home he went out more so than before he wanted to feel alive these tatoos mean that night and rember is for ever a part of him they are complex. as a survivor you feel guilty that others had to die while you got away with your life now. these tattoos are like my own gunshop when. they show that i was there that night and who i am. and that's all. things are better now and still life for the forty one year old will never be the
same again also in a good way. i'm much more willing to take a leap know that and example i've only been with my girlfriend for seven months or so and we're already talking about moving in together and having a child. i would have been much more hesitant to do that two years ago. but now i'm thinking seize the day because. you need to go for things if there's a chance they will make you happy. poor all that. stuff things france has stood its ground against the threat of terrorism people are sticking together not letting themselves be divided even after further attacks yet in one respect he says the terrorists have won that's what sort of kills the most france has restricted civil liberties. first by maintaining the state of emergency for so long.
and then by enshrining many of those extra police powers and. in a way that's a victory for the terrorists hope with this if they want to frighten us and make us give up some of our civil rights to do is. that it was. also thought that was all that he suffers more frightened than he was before frightened that he could lose another friend or relative to terrorism even more reason he says to live every minute of every day. every united nations member country has agreed to join the paris climate accord every country except the united states if you believe president trump will make good on his promise to exit the landmark agreement designed to reduce carbon emissions well needless to say americans are not the most popular of delegates at the un climate change conference that's going on right now in bonn germany but there are some very
important exceptions today governors present in past from the u.s. states of california oregon washington and virginia were in bonn with a message take a listen. we understand that climate change is not just an environmental challenge it is the largest economic opportunity since the invention of the steam engine and the reason is is that when we decarbonize or economy those states and those companies that will go out and create the new technologies to solve that will be the greatest wealth creators since the mehta g s we never saw this as a political issue we always saw it as a people see issue and it's you know as has always said there is no democratic republic in the obio preach the same there's no democratic water republican water we all drink the same water so we should take politics out of the whole thing and do what is right. now is arnold schwarzenegger there the former governor of california so take politics out of the mix and take c o two emissions out is well
that is the goal of the united nations climate change summit that is going on right now in the german city of basra tonight we'd like to look at india a country that is heavily reliant on coal the dirtiest of fossil fuels is the source for more than half of india's electricity production our india correspondent sonia fung the car visited the heart of the country's coal belt in east india now mining there has had a disastrous effect on the environment and also on the people who depend on it for their livelihood. some of the motto is seventeen years old. she scavengers in the coal mines of. the shift is just nine. to begin work at dawn a pretty it's fraught with danger. the cold has to be hacked out of exposed.
