this is d.w. news live from berlin the final push to reach voters just days before the u.s. midterms voters of being hit by a barrel of political ads from both parties we ask the experts to tell us which issues are really on the minds of americans and take a look at presidents past and present hoping to influence the results. and it's being called game over for european football as we know it leaked documents show the continent's top football clubs have been quietly planning to seize control of european football and form their own lately we'll talk to one of the reporters who
broke the story. i'm rebecca it is welcome to the program in the u.s. democrats and republicans are making their final pitch to voters as head of next week's midterm elections and leading the charge to presidents with rival visions for america's future former president barack obama and current commander in chief donald trump sparring on the campaign trail for many this election is all about the different versions of america represented by these party late is his some of what they have to say. the end should not be a matter of partisan politics to say we don't target certain groups of people based on what they look like the goal how did you ever who they love.
because we don't want to go back to the obama days of low wages high unemployment rising crime open borders far left charges oppressive regulations horrible horrible horrible trade deals. and with all the rhetoric telling people how to vote what the issues that americans really care about our washington correspondent has this round up. the. government's been you must. build the wall with the midterm elections approaching voters are under political ads from both parties republicans got a big throw up. just in case i need to rent a room to illegals and take a moment will democrats then however i approve of town halls bad singing and this message are both trying to drill their respective messages into the political
conscience of the american electorate it's getting less. real. and very confusing what are actually the topics the political agendas which make voters interested and going to the polls coming november sixth according to our experts panel the political topics voters really care about in the midterms are well i think the biggest issue that says forefront right now is health care the top issues in this election are the economy health care immigration trade and guns the economy health care trade and then local issues the economy it's booming sure peak for the republicans trying to get voters to cast the ballots for them the message don't vote democrats you lose your job and pay more taxes or as the president puts it democrats produce republicans produce jobs however republicans have just now started something like an athlete's on the economy perhaps
a template in the campaign the economy and health care always issues that are elections health care that's a bread and butter issue for the democrats the republican failed to replace the affordable care act better known as obamacare health care a winner for democrats so what happened to immigration and guns troposphere. trying to nationalize the immigration debate nationalize the going to be. immigration a biggie for the president racism the least racist person but the latest campaign there posted on president trump's twitter account has sparked accusations of being blatantly racist politics anybody so far for their cover. for democrats trump is the gift that keeps on giving not only is the liberal democratic voter base fired up about going to the polls come november sixth. it's pacifically white educated suburban women who voted for trump in two thousand and sixteen who now seem to be turning to the democrats i think i share the conventional wisdom that the democrats will regain the house of representatives that the republicans will perhaps gain
a seat or two in the senate no matter what the outcome on november sixth will be the twenty twenty presidential campaign has already started since as they say here in washington every election is always a referendum on the sitting president. and meanwhile twitter has suspended thousands of robo accounts encouraging people not to vote in tuesday's elections in a statement by twitter on friday the social media giant said it removed a series of accounts that were attempting to share this information in an automated fashion many of the bogus uses reportedly posed as democrats and were kicked off the platform in early october the company says the upcoming midterm elections are the most tweeted about in the platform's history. iran's supreme leader ayatollah ali khamenei is accused all trump of disgracing the united states he also said the u.s. would be the ultimate loser over its decision to impose remaining sanctions on tehran
following its route following its withdrawal from the twenty fifth a nuclear deal the restrictions a due to hit on monday after having been lifted for the past three years the sanctions will impact iran's shipping financial and energy sectors. and i'm joined now by eric randolph deputy bureau chief of the i have pena's agency in tehran eric what impact will the section sanctions likely have on ordinary people in iran. this is a pretty significant economic downturn in iran at a sense trump announced tuesday walking out the deal back in may see has lost something like seventy percent of its value that driven up the price of imports that's hit businesses across the whole of society driving up prices but we're narry people the government's been forced to so results are handing out food baskets of korra also so we've seen a lot of damage important to remember though it's not just sanctions causing those
problems and some bad decisions in the banking sector and a lot of long time structural problems in the iranian economy also to blames so do wrong to say that this is just us pressure causing causing these problems so a couple of things they have that sanctions definitely hurting iranians that is is around likely to sign and now the nuclear deal. show right now that seems very unlikely trouble like photo ops. whereas the iranians are much more into behind the scenes negotiations and a slightly softer the other approach to foreign policy it's hard to see how those two sides can and can square each other the other fact is that iran simply would consider it too much of a hit to its dignity to be pressured by the americans in such an aggressive manner and tripping demands that the u.s. is making a pariah do amounts and they have to complete capitulation of the regime and it's
hard to see how that will come to pass having said that things are moving pretty fast. because of directions in the middle east and the how some external factors will change the scenario. so what about the domestically will these sanctions have a political fallout for the government there are a lot of people really putting their faith in improving relations with the u.s. . yes that's right you talk about the impact of sanctions it's not just the economics. it's also the sense of hope that many units have when this nuclear duquesne inserted into force a couple of years ago. that hope has really been dashed the people thought this was finally a chance for iran to lose its pariah status to reengage with it and that's really. the house hardest of all and that's how the political impact on president rouhani state so much is that it's missing. that new deal in trying to rebuild those titles
and he has been here quite badly politically but for now the regime the system is rallying around him they don't want their instability. out a difficult time so for now his position is safe but it's in a couple of years when we have elections i think the reformist moderate movement is going to show the damage. harry granda from the f.a. frank you. now to some of the other stories making news around the world pakistani islamists say they have struck a deal with the government to end days of protests over the freeing of a christian woman who was charged with blasphemy under the deal of baby must not leave a pakistan must not leave pakistan until a supreme court verdict is reviewed the mother of two spent eight years on death row before being found innocent by the court this week a third migrant caravan traveling from central america to the united states has crossed into mexico from guatemala more than

more lopsided because of that money so it's very interesting for every football fan to see how this power struggle turns out right in the lakes also shine a light on gianni in fenty knowing the current fee for president and form a new way for president what have you uncovered about his past and current dealings . well jenny infantino ran on a couple of promises when he wanted to become fee for president he set the organization has to become more moral and there has to be an end to all the back room deals but we see that jenny infantino epitomizes this principle of secret negotiations as he has already done so as you if a secretary general when he helped her essential and mentions the city to negotiate very favorable terms when they were in massive breach will you have us financial family and jen infantino as president of. actually interfered with the code of ethics and made sure that fifo officials were harder to pursue for corruption.
