if your reception didn't start at the palace but at the hotel. which contains the tombs of summer france's greatest war heroes didn't go unnoticed on social media that's where napoleon was laid to rest a figure some claim macron is basing his presidency on now the fight against terrorism and relations with russia were among the topics discussed by the two leaders charlotte do pinsky reports. is the only objective we have one main goal which is to eradicate terror no matter who the terrorists are we want to build an inclusive and sustainable political solution against that background or do not require the departure of some meaty discussions on the table between the two presidents as they discussed fighting terrorism security and the paris climate accord which donald trump recently said that he was pulling the us out of it
2:07 am
despite those heavy topics on the table the first opportunity that the press had to question the president's about the discussions and the question was about russia and more so about president trump and president relationship with president putin given that the three had recently just met at the g. twenty summit in germany one of the great things that came out of that meeting by the way even though some part of the question was the fact that we got a cease fire that now is lasted for i guess mr president almost five days and a few more all of a sudden you're going to have no bullets being fired in syria and that would be a wonderful thing i think it's important that both of us have direct discussion and contact with the president put it in the current environment in middle east it's and this is the key to work together to exchange information to share these agreements and to try to build solutions. america says its forces are now

2:09 am
and. train equip and assist in the company and our partners. so let's break down those terms that often fall like a bunch of cliches but actually mean very specific things train and equip. that sort of like a boot camp when us instructors provide local forces with arms and train them that approach was taken in a while back but didn't prove to be very effective can you tell us what the total number of trained fighters remains we're talking for the next we have. which is what troops were doing in mosul and that means more engagement is true that we're operating. deeper into the iraqi formations are partners are fighting the enemy and we're supporting them with our advice and assistance we are very close to it if not already. in that fight and if you add
2:10 am
a company to the advise and assist your friend to an even higher level of involvement by u.s. troops and this is the cost of cation for the u.s. soldiers involved in the assault. interestingly enough those marines firing long range artillery are still regarded as advisors i think there's a big difference between an authorization of war. sending a few hundred advisors so what the addition of a company to their mission u.s. troops are practically escorting local fighters to rocka well there you have it the next time you listen to the military officials you can decipher what they really mean. washington d.c. . continues to talk to those who know the life of the terrorist group from the inside the wives of the fighters they.

you are. taking charge lennon's imagine song for actual policy you know the problem is that immigration at multiculturalism europe have utterly failed and everybody knows that and if you look at all the polls all the europeans are rejecting what you are presenting as a feat of my main problem is that by using the slur words like nazi racist and so on by presenting your wish and of europe apathy to the crumbling empire as a as faith in fact you are very antidemocratic because you want to shut down an open and free debate about if it's even possible if it's even a legitimate point in position to say no we don't want immigration done dogs are not going to talk to lead our nation that doesn't relate to credibility if they were not simply nobody shutting down but you. in fact you say that what i say is not a valid point because it's afraid to have to be a path think about it and see while we are being replaced and you just admitted that a replacement is taking place because our demographic and declines to not to get

a collection of everything that everybody in united states doing is doing electronically as much as they can possibly collect and tap points are primarily provided by the service telecommunications companies inside the united states i used google to find out basically where most of these tap points are so i know the buildings and addresses of all of them these tap points are distributed with the population of the u.s. they were after foreigners like they say they are there all they have to do is collect along the coast where the trance oceanic cables come up that's where all the foreigners are they don't have to go to the internal united states to collect the foreigners are not the target here is the u.s. population that's the target and they take an oath to protect and defend that and they're not doing that that's my problem with them that's why i'm pushing this affidavit. or us a police officer has been filmed shooting at domestic animals during a burglary call the footage posted on facebook shows a minneapolis police officer drawing his gun at two dogs that don't seem to be

2:26 am
let's start off with twitter everyone's a traitor this days right from school kids to donald trump he even cherished some of his foreign policy decisions and will face internal policy makings on twitter someone from the from his status at that white house will have better our favorite new laid off twitter what do you think can addiction like that get in the way of ruling a country i mean is not a good thing that he actually reaches out to his people. that's a rhetorical question. it's just a question just think if that can get in a way of really a country i mean he did get elected through twitter twitter after all. it's a good question. it's hard to take donald trump's twitter obsession seriously. and he says getting in the way getting in the way of war. i mean it's not as if there's a serious man behind. the trump who uses twitter so the trump who uses
2:27 am
twitter. is. sort of. egocentric narcissistic so whether or not he uses twitter i don't think it really makes any difference and still the same from seeing you just thinking his staff members are worried because it would be better for the white house image that he laid off twitter that he would write less things that are hard for all to the image of the american friends and i mean i you hear a lot of stories about the why of. how they're trying to control him i think he's the type of person who if he wants to do seventy well irrespective of the white house and the white house stuff anyway it's very much divided in terms of personalities and ideologies so. my guess is. there's probably as much dispute amongst the white house staff. trumps use of twitter. as divided on policy issues. if twitter was trumps
2:28 am
biggest problem i wouldn't be particularly. it's just that it's sort of reflects the dysfunctionality of this administration that a president should be using twitter to undermine members of his cabinet. mislead the country to put out different messages. from his ministration kind of exemplifies captures the profound dysfunctionality of this regime. we're not going to talk about trump's decision in politics but i just want to talk about twitter and social media because it came into light with the election of donald trump and how much power i don't think it's true i think. every election people say for the last two or three elections everyone's always said it's a twitcher election when obama was elected specially the kind of liberal
2:29 am
intelligentsia the elites on the the west and the east coast they all said oh finally twitter is able to meet your is able to generate. a candidate of the people. and finally social media is able to disinter mediate all the institutions of politics and produce a high quality leader and i think in some senses that was true certainly obama's smart use of social media broke through a lot of the clutter and then four years later eight years after obama was initially elected we have trump who shows the really dark side of social media so i think what obama and trump show is that social media itself like all these internet technologies are just technologies. there's no reason to suppose that they produce.
