8:01 am
hello there you watching r.t. international broadcasting to you live from the russian capital and the care and. donald trump has to live with his first speech at the united nations criticizing the organization for bureaucracy and mismanagement and calling for reform artie's caleb maupin reports from new york on how the businessman turns presidents would like to see move money and diplomacy. has led to the original. donald trump has made his debut before the u.n. the world's leading international body a body that he once called a club for people to get together talk and have a good time trying to open the first session of the u.n. general assembly with quite. familiar message makes things great again with reform
8:02 am
recent years the united nations has not reached its full potential because of bureaucracy and mismanagement while the united nations on a regular budget has increased by one hundred forty percent and its staff has more than doubled since two thousand and we are not seeing the results in line with this investment at this point the united states is the top contributor to the united nations the usa pays twenty two percent of the core un budget and twenty eight percent of the peacekeeping operations that's three times the second largest contributor china being a businessman this is how trump sees it because the usa is such a big contributor it has every right to question the un's results and the usa has been seeing itself over ruled by the international community when the un ruled against israeli settlements this triggered accusations of bias i'm here to
8:03 am
emphasise the united states is determined to stand up to the un's anti israel bias but i think most americans believe that the united nations has become more anti-semitic more anti israeli and i'm a big internationalist but we're going to stop the money until we get this fixed and then there syria russia and china are frequently very telling resolutions that they view as misconceived this is causing american lawmakers to say that they are a threat to global security the problem is the international community is being held hostage by china and russia just vetoed a united nations security council resolution condemning the assad regime every time that's been tried they have blocked former u.n. ambassador for the united states samantha power a longtime advocate of u.s. military interventions has said that perhaps russia and china's veto power should be removed if it reveals itself to be dysfunctional then people are going to. i'm just not happened for move in syria on ukraine. and you started to see across
8:04 am
the board paralysis it would certainly jeopardize the security council status as we go to international security it's sort of the trump tower version of the u.n. reform he simply wants to be suppose one can wish him well but i don't think it's the right way to approach the more profound questions of peace which to me by then seeing the world against each other is a bit more important than balancing the budget the united nations charter does not allow for pay to play games votes are not for sale before the u.s. calls the u.n. disrespect for it should remember that it's a global platform for compromise where every voice can be heard. r.t. new york and donald trump is expected to speak at the u.n. general assembly later today we'll be bringing you all the updates from new york live here on r.t. international stay tuned for that. syrian

government forces have successfully crossed the euphrates river near or effectively securing their advance against islamic state in the area artie's more reports from syria with the latest. the syrian military allegedly crossed the euphrates river in the vicinity. just southeast of the russian air force had spent days clearing the way isis resistance in the area as well as destroying isis. units across was again according to various sources. this detachment that is deployed and trained to fight against isis exclusively to his apparently be tough going. villages on the west on the eastern side of the river but isis have carried the counter attacks and have resisted fiercely sending suicide bombers as
8:06 am
well as vehicles packed with explosives in an effort to destroy the advancing syrian forces isis has also according to reports suffered significant casualties a number of jihad has. been captured but they aren't letting up the pressure they determined to throw the syrian military back across the euphrates river something that will be much harder to do now that the russians have said they've set up a bridge a temporary military bridge across the euphrates river by which the syrian military can move heavy units such as tanks and. across the east. the coming days will be. because the syrian military is now kilometers away from u.s. forces so it will be important to watch for any sort of escalation to avoid any unnecessary incidents. these are exclusive pictures from the recently liberated
8:07 am
syrian town of acrobat in hama province there were real islamic state i mean ish and oppose and armored vehicles abandoned by the militants as they fled the area network of tunnels was also discovered which linked the sites. thousands of french students have found themselves looks out of their own college campus after an illegal makeshift refugee camp appeared on site forty migrants have unlawfully settled their wrongs champagne and then university in northeastern france for security reasons all that have been suspended until further notice the president of the university says they won't restart until the all thora tees can ensure students safety well we spoke to him as well as students at the campus. the google yesterday we witnessed an illegal occupation of the university's grounds due to the situation i can no longer guarantee security there are some children living
8:08 am
here and it's impossible for the departments to function normally so i've shut down the university and i'm waiting for solutions to be offered. so it's a shame to sacrifice the interests of six thousand students for the sake of forty people i understand that we're talking about people who are on the streets but still the situation seems unfair to me. at the moment who are being sacrificed by so society more pressure needs to be put on the mayor's office to provide the migrants without a court house at the moment nothing is happening and they're staying into an illegal camp. well r.t. house sends a letter asking for clarification on the matter from the local authorities but so far we've had no response but we will update you as soon as we hear anything. the refugee influx in say you are growing by the day is not the first case of my current setting up makeshift camps at public sites one migrant camp that emerged in the belgian capital brussels just a few weeks ago has been branded as second kalai jungle up to four hundred refugees
8:09 am
have gathered there desperate for food and shelter in another case this time in the french capital of florida has placed huge boulders under a bridge in a bid to deter a makeshift count that had emerged there but the move was criticized by local activists who argued the refugees had nowhere else to go and had not slept for days we spoke to political analyst nicolo murcutt to about the new camp at the french university people leave the decision to look students out of the site was correct. president of the university took the right decision this is not a normal situation you cannot just have migrants they don't know who these migrants are what their purpose there is how long they're going to stay there are senator issues there are also problems linked with migrants and crime in different cities in europe today and what we're seeing today is totally the chaotic can you imagine migrants going on campus university because there are no more room in town to greet them and this is not the first time that he's migrants sleeping out in the streets
8:10 am
have been tense sitting in makeshift places because there's an officer and friends cannot cope with this wave of migration today look at today isn't a typical sisters a frantic situation whereby it is given the message to the rest of the world that europe has no borders that europe can greet people from all around the world whether this before you cannot make reasons political reasons and whether saying that they're inviting thousands and hundreds of thousands of migrants to europe the state and the european union is not taking decision because of. political correctness. the u.s. senate has officially banned the use of a leading antivirus software also dual agencies amid concerns the russian products could provide a back door to the kremlin. there's an international cyber security and antivirus provider based in mosco it's been in business for over twenty years is and protects of a four hundred million users and almost three hundred thousand organizations the companies submit its products to various international quality tests and has frequently won
8:11 am
awards in providing security technology the company has issued a statement kaspersky denied it works for the russian government answered it finds the allegations unverified and dangerous well decision now limits the choice people have for security software and as artie's daniel hawkins reports it seems russian spy hysteria has now moved from diplomacy to economy. it's official the u.s. senate has voted to purge all. of our us products from civilian government bodies it's of course been generally banned by military bodies already for quite some time and this has been done on the basis that just persecute of course one of the most common virus cyber security products in the world used by tens of millions of users poses a high national security risk sponsoring the head of the lab using saying that he was earlier officially invited to speak before the senate to answer their questions address their concerns on the matter he's more than happy to do so but he would
8:12 am
need a special visa to be able to make it on time for the hearing on the twenty seventh of september to kremlin has also weighed in on the matter presidential spokesman dmitri press corps has said he believes that this decision is an attack on competition on the free market on russian firms in that free market of cybersecurity in particular saying that this is a breach of all international norms of trading of course these allegations of russian interference in the u.s. election they've dragged all of normally resulted in tit for tat diplomatic expulsions seizures of diplomatic buildings even sanctions it seems now although this hysteria over russian spying has moved ever more from the world of diplomacy to the world of business commerce. left out a little bit deeper into the story now across live to our guest asghar cohen who is the digital economy research at nottingham university welcome to the program now is this move purely about security or do you think there could be more to it.
8:13 am
from our perspective it's difficult. this. is obviously the possibility that these kinds of. software could be used as. we don't have enough information it is the case it is situation what kind of impact do you think that this decision is going to have on kaspersky his reputation after all it's used all around the world it's a very well known leading antivirus software. well certainly if the u.s. could sure evidence. being somehow complicit in accessing u.s. senate data it would be very damaging for them. security software vendor
8:14 am
reputation is very important security software has the potential for a lot of information on the system so you really need your reputation that i was a trusted source is very important in this what do you think can do you think they really need to evidence here i mean in it for my cases when russia has been accused of thing if no evidence has been provided yet they still been tainted with this reputation so we've been without this evidence do you think it's going to have a damaging effect on conspiracy. in the short run most probably. plays out in the long run will depend if because first control strong evidence that this is safe then. they should be able to recover from this i would think that also this could have. an impact on the
8:15 am
reputation of the u.s. having a safe methodology that you would think that for something like the senate any services that are being used to provide security should go through some strict auditing background checks the u.s. would have been asking to see code from the to make sure that they are thinking about who was in it. ok mr as garko in digital economy research at nottingham university thank you for joining us on the program so we appreciate it. and russia about every summer terry drills triggered international hysteria with all the details after the break stay with us.

8:17 am
welcome back internet trolls should be banned from voting in elections as according to a new proposal by the u.k.'s electoral watchdog it comes off to revelations that the most majority of british m.p.'s face the online abuse in the twenty seventeen general election campaign. we know that the internet and in particular the twitter sphere can be a pretty nasty place if you're a public figure you've got to have a thick skin to be on there and more so if you are a politician so this suggestion to stop online trolls from voting in general elections it's come from the electoral commission because we know that some eighty seven percent of politicians experienced pretty horrifying abuse in the last general election campaign one politician that's been particularly affected by it is the veteran labor m.p. diane abbott has just hurts people to single out should you choose to go not just
8:18 am
because you can see it will. be that she's right to let. me put you to the you know to put your stamp on it and that you go to the post books press buttons and she's read was abuse she's good people to do such and to write down and it doesn't really matter what side of the political spectrum you're on there are both labor and conservative m.p.'s who have been subjected to pretty nasty abuse so examples of the types of abuse that politicians had during the last election campaign was one conservative candidate being racially abused at a polling station another conservative m.p. cheryl mari her election posters were actually covered with swastikas and a labor m.p. a former labor m.p. he was actually physically assaulted at the polling station when he was delivering leaflets and because twitter is such
8:19 am
a major conduit for the majority of the abuse that these politicians get this suggestion for the from the electoral commission has been being seen as a potential deterrent so maybe get people to stop and think before they type their poisonous messages on their keyboard but on fiercely it comes with a big county at so it might work as a deterrent in fear. but how would it work in practice it's a bit of a gray area about how you implement this law what is the red line just how nasty to someone have to be online in order to be banned from voting in the general election well twitter users were quick to react to the potential ban some of drawing parallels with george orwell's utopian book nineteen eighty-four some claims the country is standing on a dangerous path. that politicize ation of u.s. society appears to be hitting a new height with nothing or no one off limits anymore the latest victim is the
8:20 am
emmy awards supposedly an event to honor excellence in television however this year's show which was held on sunday was used to mercilessly the trunk of mr a show host stephen colbert was suddenly joined on stage by the president's press secretary sean trying to use the occasion to reference his work at the white house something critics suggested looks a little out of place at a t.v. awards ceremony. trying to devise a lashed out of the situation warning such televised events have become quote very politicized i think it's not helping their ratings but when it comes to politics in the u.s. life at the moment there's seemingly no escape. tired of politics. but in the past and i think it interested in taking a few government of by well it seems there's nowhere to hide looking for today's with the full cost of showering and messages on the weather channel home page buying a new comic surprise surprise superman this so-called protection of the earth is
8:21 am
now would defend of immigrants that's how he's portrayed in the latest edition over action comics the bad guy here unarmed white supremacist in his stars and stripes seems like a deja vu but there's one side in his white supremacy white nationalist protesters if that's your stand up. show that you are racist surely trusty old sport can save us but you don't have to be anti police to understand what the situation is why not give the black lives matter movement a legal arm when the president of the united states is lying or either doesn't understand the information and i don't know which is worse. is politike so literally everywhere. maybe the show to of the big screen in the family comedy is the way forward you want the red or the blue now. it's just my boy this goofy little stinker he loves all things alice that wants to be
8:22 am
one when he grows up. nope not this time well children's t.v. it is then you could be watching e.s.p.n. and hearing commentary on transgender bathrooms you could watch the cartoon channel and you know something about climate change now they will tell you otherwise they will tell you that they have never enjoyed greater numbers greater ratings nonsense if you look at the reset every awards the every or it worst one of the worst ratings. ever why. because even any television awards program day was political in the united states middle america main street you know. what this is.
8:23 am
any time you could work and trying to present any of the. show from the dog channel to the weather channel that are jus general you get a pat extra points for you. the popular encrypted message service called telegram has found itself in hot water after a man claiming to be a former employee whistleblower and lifted the lid on what's been reportedly going on well as his jacqueline very good joins me in the studio now with more exactly what more what would we know about the situation well it's actually really quite complex and tell them is a widely popular messaging platform in february of last year they claim to have around one hundred million monthly active users with around fifteen billion messages being sent every day and of course one of the most popular features of the program is the security it provides its users but now we have this man claiming to be an ex employee sort of airing their dirty laundry he claims that he was fired
8:24 am
earlier this year by the founder apol dura of over a personal conflict he had with paul's brother nicol i. claimed that nicholai was actually in love with his fiance and when he confronted him over the issue he was then let go now the founder pavol door of has responded to some of these claims saying that the man never even worked at the company he doesn't really know him and that ninety percent of this post he made a line is complete nonsense even going so far saying that this man anton rosenberg is in fact mentally ill and at the same time rosenberg is being sued by the company for. revealing confidential information about telegram and one of the particular things in this post that they may be objecting to is a story that rosenberg tells about how there was a plan to move a number of telegrams servers from london to a different european city which was apparently less expensive and that pavol the
8:25 am
founder had chosen to fund this all himself and when he realized how expensive it would be to do in the right way through the right sort of services he decided to just rent a couple of trucks put the servers in the back and he and allegedly just went over a few borders and then tom talks about going through customs without a for declaring these very very expensive servers and all this equipment and the plot thickens i correct me if i'm wrong this isn't the first time that telegrams been at the center of controversy is it exactly actually it's had a fair share of controversy and authorities from a number of countries have actually threatened to block the program due to its popularity among terrorists because the messaging app does allow such a high level of encryption it's believe that telegram was used by jihad as in france in the middle east and even here closer to home russian intelligence agencies have received very good information that the terrorists who carried out
8:26 am
the attack in st petersburg and april of this year were also using telegram and that was a of course an attack that killed fifteen people now doura of also recently revealed that the f.b.i. f.b.i. illegibly approached him with bribes to create a back door to the program and he says apparently he's refused all such requests not just from the f.b.i. but from other governments as well saying that privacy should be more important than the fear of terrorists but in light of all these internal conflicts maybe no backdoor is really necessary perhaps you can just ask a couple ex employees such an interesting story so much control as they of course we're going to be following get old the way. ok well do tell us what you think about today's stories by getting in touch on facebook and twitter in the meantime i'll be back in about thirty minutes with the headlines.

hello there is four pm here in the russian capital and you're watching our c international with me the t. heir and that's how he with us. donald trump has delivered his first speech to the united nations criticizing the organization for bureaucracy and mismanagement and calling for reform artie's caleb maupin reports from new york on how the businessmen turned president would like to see more value for money in diplomacy. was written with its owner is. donald trump has made his debut before the un the world's leading international body a body that he once called a club for people to get together talk and have a good time trouble open the first session of the u.n. general assembly with quite familiar message make things great again with reform recent years the united nations has not reached its full potential because of
9:02 am
bureaucracy and mismanagement while the united nations on a regular budget has increased by one hundred forty percent and its staff has more than doubled since two thousand we are not seeing the results in line with this investment at this point the united states is the top contributor to the united nations the usa pays twenty two percent of the core un budget and twenty eight percent of the peacekeeping operations that's three times the second largest contributor china being a businessman this is how trump sees it because the usa is such a big contributor it has every right to question the un's results and the usa has been seeing itself over ruled by the international community when the un ruled against israeli settlements this triggered accusations of bias i'm here to emphasise the united states is determined to stand up to the un's anti israel bias
9:03 am
but i think most americans believe that the united nations has become more anti-semitic more anti israeli and i'm a big internationalist but we're going to stop the money until we get this fixed and then there syria russia and china are frequently vetoing resolutions that they view as misconceived causing american lawmakers to say that they are a threat to global security the problem is the international community is being held hostage by china and russia just vetoed a united nations security council resolution condemning the assad regime and. every time that's been tried they have blocked a former u.n. ambassador for the united states samantha power a longtime advocate of u.s. military intervention has said that perhaps russia and china's veto power should be removed if you physically ability reveals itself to be dysfunctional then people are going to ask where i'm to that happens from within syria and ukraine and he started to see across the board paralysis it would sit in the chapter dies the security council status as we go to international security it's sort of the trump
9:04 am
tower version of the u.n. reform he simply wants to be on the mount i suppose one can wish him well but i don't think it's the right way to approach the more profound questions of peace which to me than seeing with the world against each other is a bit more important than balancing the budget the united nations charter does not allow for pay to play games votes are not for sale before the usa calls the un disrespectful it should remember that it's a global platform for compromise where every voice can be heard. r.t. new york and donald trump is expected to speak at the u.n. general assembly later today we're bringing you all the updates from new york live here on our c international. the french capital is boosting security with a bulletproof glass wall to be erected around the eiffel tower the world's most
9:05 am
visited more newmans now looks more like a construction site because wallace there to be built on the two sides of the tower facing the river sent there the two sides will be protected by metal fences the plan has sparked hated reaction on social media with many expressing outrage at the counter terror measures a wool costing about twenty million euros is being built to protect the eiffel tower on the multicultural europe is this needed bridges not walls except around the artful turner apparently a bulletproof glass wall to be built in paris looks like the glass wall around the only full tower against attacks trump in the leftist mayor of paris together it's very sad that there would be putting the fence around it and the last one there is detrimental to the beauty of the tower i don't think it would it would help the security if something's going to happen it's going to happen this a class war is well as if it was an idea whose time. european cities generally have
9:06 am
also been boosting counter-terror measures but little known milan are among those that have installed special concrete barriers and that on their streets while nice introduced barriers after the big steel day lorry attack. discuss this further now we're joined by our guest on laughlin director of studies at the institute of democracy and cooperation in paris good to have you with us mr laughlin now do you think countermeasures like this have any real chance of preventing future attacks. absolutely not any potential attackers will simply go elsewhere the people you interviewed interviewed on the street just now are absolutely right we all know that the targets of attacks in various european cities have been very varied and for the most part they have been on a well known street they haven't been around tourist destinations like the eiffel tower so if the eiffel tower is now protected five glass wall a potential terrorist driving
9:07 am
a truck or whatever will simply go to the shows that you say or to some other street and as one of the other people you interviewed said you know we have taken down in europe national borders we don't control anymore certainly not in the schengen zone who comes into the country there are no border controls as we know between france and germany or italy and spain and the inevitable result of this is the construction of internal borders within our capital cities of a kind which has never existed before it's rather as if we had thrown at you know we had thrown away the key to our front door of our house and the result is you have to seek refuge in the bathroom or europe has been used in security measures in a lot of different ways recently including concrete barriers like we mentioned to prevent further truck planning attacks the have they proven effective they. well so far there haven't been any more attacks in paris at least no major ones but
9:08 am
i repeat as you know in london they've built concrete bollards on westminster bridge following an attack there about a year ago when a man drove a car into the protests trains a crossing westminster bridge and then attacked or a policeman outside the houses of parliament it's obvious that you can't do that for all the streets of london so any person who wishes to commit such an atrocity in london or in paris simply needs to go to the massive majority of other streets in fact all of them where there is no such protection and that is what is so frightening about this latest spate of attacks with vans and trucks obviously these trucks by definition can go anywhere so i would have thought that paying twenty million pounds for a glass wall is a complete waste of money what do you think about the people who are outraged by these names is it me we're thinking about tourists who are travelling all the way to paris for example to see the glorious eiffel tower and then met with eyes thought but surely safety comes before sightseeing don't you think. well i mean i'm
9:09 am
not objecting to it particularly static grounds i haven't seen it it's only a made of glass so i don't i don't think that the aesthetic issue is the major one what i think is the major issue is that partly because of the open door policy the no border policy by which i mean the actual abolition of borders of national borders and also the policy of welcoming of unconditionally welcoming welcoming in hundreds of thousands or even millions of immigrants as a result of those policies in security has increased in europe it's increased from terrorism and it's increased. in other ways as well you know gangsterism law and order and so on and so the paradox is that if you take down the national borders you have to put up internal borders instead the you.
9:10 am
frankly is secondary there are many uglier bear lard's and other protection measures all over european capitals above all around every single american embassy in the world which is now protected like a fortress in whichever european or world capital you go to the american embassy unlike all the other all the other embassies is very heavily protected usually with concrete bollocks these are respected geisel more so i would say even the glass wall. so regardless of be the bullet proof glass the concrete bar large they railings they are there better ways to be security at europe's most popular tourist destinations. well as we know a number of terrorists the ones who committed the massacre in paris some years ago are the ones who committed the atrocities at brussels airport the one in london i referred to earlier a lot of these people are homegrown terrorists in other words they are children of
9:11 am
immigrants but they were very often born in the country in question that is an internal security problem it's a counterterrorism and intelligence problem but there are also some who have either been radicalized by going abroad for example to syria or who come from abroad and the fact is that europe does not control the people who come in from abroad the islamic state said two years ago it would send terrorists over with the refugees and that warning went on he did and refugees or migrants continue to arise by tens and hundreds of thousands every month in italy and in spain and they don't spread out across the whole of europe and this is clearly a danger both for sociological reasons but also for law and order and i'm afraid you know putting up a glass wall around the eiffel tower is as the metaphor goes closing the stable door after the horse has bolted and you know once you've let people in they will
9:12 am
simply go somewhere else if there is a glass wall ok on that note mr john laughlin director of studies at the institute of democracy and cooperation in paris where that bullet proof glass wall is currently underway thank you for your time sir. now the popular encrypted message service called telegram has found itself in hot water off to a man claiming to be a former employee turned whistleblower lifted the lid on was reportedly being going on there well joining me live in the studio now is. to discuss this further jacki what do we know about this what's really sort of a very complex and sordid tale one of the program's most popular features is the security that it does provide its users and yet as you mentioned we have this man who's claiming to be an ex employee and a very high up employee that sort of exposing all the dirty laundry of telegram. burke says that he was fired earlier this year by the founder of telegram possible
9:13 am
door of over a personal conflict he had with pablo's brother nicholai claims that nickel i was in love with his fiance and when he confronted him over that that was when he was let go from the company now pavol the founder has already responded to some of these accusations saying that the man never worked there that all of his claims are nonsense and even going so far as to saying that he's mentally ill and at the same time we have telegrams suing this man rosenberg for run one point seven million dollars saying that he exposed confidential information about the company while at the same time saying he never worked there so it's all a bit confusing and one of the issues they might have had within his post about the company was he speaks of a story that he says that he and pavol moved a number of companies servers across europe and instead of using the proper channels which can be quite costly they decided just to do it themselves and he talks about going over going through customs without declaring these really really
9:14 am
expensive servers which of course would be illegal does indeed sound incredibly sordid ending incredibly personal as well but this isn't the first time that telegram has been a sense of control is that is it exactly. they've been in the headlines quite a lot because authorities from a number of countries have actually threatened to block the program because of its popularity among terrorists given that the messaging allows very very high levels in corruption it's believed that telegram was. jihad this in france in the middle east and even here closer at home it's believe the telegram was used by those who conducted the attack in st petersburg earlier this year which did in fact kill fifteen people has recently revealed that the f.b.i. allegedly approached him with a bribe to create a backdoor to the program but he says that he's refused all such requests saying that private privacy should be more important than the fear of terrorists but in the light of of course all of these internal conflicts perhaps
9:15 am
a back door wouldn't really be necessary when i have the feeling they story's going to go on so with the latest to come back to is that i thank you. when you come off of this short break stay with us. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the senate it's full on awesome the only show i go out of my way to you know what it is that really packs a punch. yampa is the john oliver of r t americans do the same we are apparently better than. c. people you've never heard of love redacted tonight my president of the world bank take. me seriously send us an email. what politicians to.
9:16 am
put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. some want to listen. to going. to see what before three of the people. i'm interested in the water. welcome back internet trolls should be banned from voting in elections i was quoting to a new proposal by the u.k.'s electoral watchdog it comes off to revelations that the vaults majority of british m.p.'s have faced online abuse in the twenty seventeen general election campaign we know that the internet and in particular the twitter sphere can be a pretty nasty place if you're
9:17 am
a public figure you've got to have a thick skin to be on there and more so if you are a politician so this suggestion to stop online trolls from voting in general elections it's come from the electoral commission because we know that some eighty seven percent of politicians experienced pretty horrifying abuse in the last general election campaign one politician that's been particularly affected by it is the veteran labor m.p. diane abbott had death threats how people should be put to use it or not close the canyon if you will and she. took. you actually right to let. me put it in the you know to put a stamp on it and that you go to the post box. and you read was abuse which those two years ago people didn't say which isn't so easily drawing down and it doesn't really matter what side of the political spectrum you're on there are
9:18 am
both labor and conservative m.p.'s who have been subjected to pretty nasty abuse so examples of the types of abuse that politicians had during the last election campaign was one conservative candidate being racially abused at a polling station another conservative m.p. cheryl laurie her election posters were actually covered with swastikas and a labor m.p. a former labor m.p. he was actually physically assaulted at the polling station when he was delivering leaflets and because twitter a site. agent conduit for it majority of the abuse that these politicians get this suggestion for from the electoral commission has been being seen as a potential deterrent so maybe get people to stop and think before they type their poisonous messages on their keyboard but obviously it comes with a big caviar so it might work as a deterrent in theory but how would it work in practice it's a bit of a gray area about how you implement this law what is the red line just how nasty to
9:19 am
someone have to be online in order to be banned from voting in the general election well twitter users were quick to react to the potential pointing in the country a stunning going to dangerous part. politicize ation of us society appears to be hitting new heights with nothing and no one off limits anymore the latest victim is the emmy awards supposedly an event to honor excellence in television however this is show which was held on sunday was used to most of us the most the trumpet ministration host stephen colbert was suddenly joined on stage by the president's former press secretary sean spicer spices used the occasion to reference his work at the white house something critics suggested looked a little out of place at a t.v. awards ceremony in terms advisor lashed out of the situation warning such televised events have become quote very politicized and saying it's not helping their ratings
9:20 am
but when it comes to politics in u.s. life at the moment there are seemingly no escape. tired of politics. in the past and i think there's that in taking a few government of by well it seems there's nowhere to hide looking for two days with the full cost of showering and messages on the weather channel home page buying a new comic surprise surprise superman the so-called protection of the earth is now would defend of immigrants that's how he's portrayed in the latest edition over action comics the bad guy here unarmed white supremacist in his stars and stripes seems like a deja vu of this one found in his mind the premise a white nationalist protesters yes you stand up. to show that you are racists surely trust you'll spoil would consider this but you don't have to be police to understand what the situation is why not give the black wives matter of movement
9:21 am
illegal when the president of the united states is lying or either doesn't understand the information and i don't know which is worse. east politics literally everywhere. maybe the show to of the big screen and the family comedies in the way fool what you want the red or the blue. it's just my boy. he loves all things hell it wants to be one when he grows. nope not this time well children's t.v. it is then you could be watching e.s.p.n. and hearing commentary on transgender bathrooms you could watch the cartoon channel and you know something about climate change now they will tell you otherwise they will tell you that they have never enjoyed greater numbers greater ratings nonsense if you look at the reset every awards the anime or it
9:22 am
worst one of the worst ratings. ever why. because even any television only rewards program they way political in the united states middle america mainstream they have no couldn't shut out what is is don't you buy. any time you can work and tease trying to present any of the hand usual ones on the dog general to the weather channel that are jugend you get a pat extra points for you. russia and by the rules are currently holding joint military drills thousands of troops and almost a thousand years of combat hardware are involved causing a stir internationally. or
9:23 am
ships from russia's baltic fleet are taking part in the large scale drills the maritime maneuvers simulates an attack from enemy aircraft helicopters and paratroopers are also involved in the exercises western media and politicians have widely exaggerated the numbers taking part also claiming that drones are not being performed in a transparent manner international observers invited by the russian side case that assessments. we saw exactly what was given during the briefing we saw they the scenario that was originally prepared also the figures we were
9:24 am
presented before we sought to be didn't look like yeah if i can terrorist groups it more defensive to take a. really good combination of all kind of force. syrian government forces have successfully crossed the euphrates river near do yet and still affectively securing their dissolves against islamic states in the area artie's mark gasnier reports from syria with the latest. the syrian military allegedly crossed the euphrates river in the vicinity. just south of. the russian they have forced to spend days clearing the way isis resistance in the area as well as destroying isis. the various sources i saw this detachment that is deployed and trained to fight against isis exclusively it has apparently be tough. villages on the west on the
9:25 am
eastern side of the river but isis have carried the counterattacks and have resisted fiercely sending suicide bombers as well as vehicles packed with explosives in an effort to destroy the advancing syrian forces. according to reports suffered significant casualties a number of jihad. being captured but they aren't letting up the pressure they determined to throw the syrian military back across the euphrates river something that will be much harder to do now that the russians have said they've set up a bridge a temporary military bridge across the euphrates river by which the syrian military can move heavy units tanks and passing. across. the coming days will be. because the syrian military is now kilometers away from
9:26 am
u.s. forces so it will be important to watch for any sort of escalation to avoid any unnecessary incidents. a british photographer has won a copyright case against an animal rights group something snapped by a monkey during a photo shoot this is the image that sparks the lawsuit photographer david slade says now agreed to donate twenty five percent of future revenues from the image to a charity in support of the indonesian macaque the pessah group sued him back in two thousand and fifteen arguing that the monkey the copyrights to discuss the issue let's cross live to. see who is the director of international programs thank you for joining us on the program now this case has rumbled on so two years now was the long slog worth it. of course it was it was absolutely worth it you
9:27 am
know this is been an international interest case and it's pushing boundaries a animal rights you know up until now are still actually unfortunately animals are viewed as property under the law and so this is really challenging that after everything we now know about animals we've learned so much over the last decades about how intelligent they are how emotional they are that the mechanics they live in communities and families and you know we have to question why it is that we are not affording them the rights that they should naturally be entitled to so this case was really important because it gave us an opportunity to talk about that and also. and his family are going to benefit from some of the proceeds of this photograph which they desperately need you know these animals are endangered they have their numbers have dropped by ninety percent in the last twenty five years so they absolutely need this money in order to be able to go to protecting their natural habitats. are you fully satisfied with the verdict.
9:28 am
actually we settled out of court so there hasn't been a verdict but we're at we are happy and we we believe that david slater the photographer is happy too you know we both care deeply about animals we know that david does too and this case was just a very simple black and white issue about copyright in the united states under copyright legislation and anyone who is the author of an image and it doesn't matter whether that is a male or female whether it's a child or you know it doesn't specify what species either so there's no reason under copyright law in a router should not be gaining from the proceeds of this photograph so we're happy that you know he and his community will be getting twenty five percent of the proceeds absolutely i could as many back see past a director of international programs thank you for your time. thanks ok was it get in touch and how is your thoughts on the day stories by following us on facebook and twitter and on the back about their c minutes with the headlines.
9:29 am
seemed wrong why don't we just don't call. me. yet to see. this day come out. and in detroit equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
9:30 am
see million dollars ario filling in for lindsay france this is broadcasting around the world from right here in washington d.c. coming up on the show it ditching the dollar venezuela turned to chinese currency to publish the price of its oil and china starts a crude oil venture convertible to gold are we seeing a shift away from the dollar dominated market un uncertainty how will trump america first policy play as world leaders descend on his hometown of new york city for his first u.n. general assembly then chevrolet standoff the us isn't the only country losing jobs to mexico canada workers on strike demanding job security from g.m. is not that a blame we have that a whole lot more so standby boom bust start right now.
9:31 am
then as well as ditching the dollar opting instead to publish the price of its oil in chinese currency according to venezuela's oil ministry this is all part of president nicolas maduro plan to quote implement new strategies to free the country from the tyranny of the dollar now the move comes in response to us saying sions that blocked certain financial dealings with venezuela but it could also be a step toward the rising the global oil industry as a whole right now oil is traded almost exclusively in dollars the last week beijing announced plans to start a crude oil futures contract priced a new one and convertible into gold and china is the world's largest crude oil buyer closely followed by the us famed financial investor and commentator jim rogers told r.t. that a new contract in a different currency could allow exporters to avoid u.s. sanctions and that country is like. iran and china are interested in the prospect but he predicts a significant shift away from the dollar will take nearly a decade. russia's own economy has taken hits over the years because of sanctions
9:32 am
specifically from europe over conflict in ukraine and crimea and that's pushed moscow's trade interests to china where mutual trade is up twenty five percent so far this year that's according to the chinese ambassador to russia who announced the expansion monday that china has been russia's largest trading partner for several years but the connection continues to grow reaching forty six point six billion dollars in bilateral trade turnover the first seven months of twenty seventeen and twenty sixteen total trade was less than seventy billion this year china's commerce industry expects it to reach eighty and trade ties between the two countries is only getting stronger russia's prime minister dmitry medvedev says he wants to increase bilateral trade to two hundred billion in the next three to seven years driven largely by sanctions from the us and e.u. russia's economy was in recession for two years when i spoke with russian direct investment fund manager correll dmitri of at this year's bric summit in china he
9:33 am
told me russia has found a way to thrive in the face of sanctions and increased cooperation with china is critical to the success. on the topic of countries working together this week world leaders descend on new york city for the seventy second session of the united nations general assembly all one hundred ninety three member states have the equal say in this forum one nation one vote now is president donald trump's u.n. debut how will he be received ortiz trinity chavez has the story for us from new york a day before the u.n. g.a. general debate president donald trump attended a un general assembly meeting to discuss reforming the united nations and he took his criticisms a straight to the source during his first appearance at the u.n. as president donald trump called on the international body of leaders to improve the way it does business in recent years the united nations has not reached its full potential because of bureaucracy and mismanagement while the united nations on
9:34 am
a regular budget has increased by one hundred forty percent and its staff has more than doubled since two thousand and we are not seeing the results in line with this investment speaking for about four minutes president also called on the world leaders to hold every level of management accountable and focus on the results and not the process and he shared his views on how the un can be better on development management peace and security we seek a united nations that regains the trust of the people around the world in order to achieve this the united nations was told every level of management accountable protect whistleblowers and focus on results rather than on process. to honor the people of our nation we must ensure that no one and no members shoulders a disproportionate share of the bird and that militarily or for nature meanwhile u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson and russian foreign minister sergei lavrov met sunday
9:35 am
night in new york on the sidelines of the united nations general assembly the meeting that was initiated by the u.s. it lasted about forty five minutes the pair discuss cooperation on the syrian crisis issues in the middle east and the agreement to bring peace to ukraine according to the u.s. department of state the two recommitted to the decomp lifting military operations in syria reducing the violence and creating the conditions for the geneva process to move forward pursuant to united nations security council resolution the seventy second regular session of the un general assembly debate will convene tuesday where president donald trump will make his formal debut on the world stage in front of one hundred and ninety three member nations this is a very big week for president donald trump he has several one on one talks with foreign counterparts to discuss global issues one very important meeting he has later on this week is lunch with the leaders of south korea and japan to discuss rising tensions in north korea which is also a top priority on the u.n.g.a.
9:36 am
his list reporting in new york. to keep the conversation going we're joined now live by trinity charges from our new york studio trinity obviously this is a gathering of hundred ninety three nations but from the sounds of it all eyes are on one president and the president donald trump with his debut what can we expect from him this week. you know some of that's a very good question that's a question that's on everyone's mind this will be his time on one of the most whole profile stages in the world and we're talking like you said about one hundred and ninety three world leaders i think a lot of those leaders will want to hear what he has to say as far as what kind of approach he will take us back. since he has long criticized the u.n. back in two thousand and sixteen when he was a presidential candidate we heard him talk about the utter weakness and the incompetence incompetency of the united nations during his campaign trump at one point even said the united nations is not a friend of democracy it's
9:37 am
a friend it's not even a friend to freedom but since taking office he has definitely softened his approach and his stance on the u.n. saying that it has tremendous potential but this is a chance for the president to reach all of the world leaders out the same time and talk about his america first approach that he has long talked about his national security adviser said on fox over the weekend that the president will emphasize three themes which is to protect the american people promote american prosperity and help promote accountability and sovereignty among trinity will be following your reporting from new york thank you so much artie's trinity charges. so as we look at more issues from a global perspective let's tackle one that's a little harder to track global income inequality has been pretty hard to pin down thanks to the secrecy of tax havens like switzerland and the cayman islands but new
9:38 am
data showed just how much the world's wealthy have stashed away. joining us for more on this would be younger what is this new research telling us wall summed up quickly it basically argues that global income inequality is actually worse than we initially thought thanks to new data we know more about the scope of worldwide income inequality than ever before according to a report from the national bureau of economic research the amount of money stored in offshore tax havens is equal to ten percent of global g.d.p. that's equivalent to nearly five point six trillion dollars so all that money isn't spread out evenly over half of it staff. weigh in gulf countries in latin america well nearly fifteen percent is in europe and traditionally it's countries like switzerland that take the most heat for tax havens but they've actually been on the decline there on the other hand they've been on the rise in asia there was also an increase in the us though it's still below the average so with the exception of
9:39 am
a few. has grown over the past fifteen years and that impacts income inequality work taxes are concerned since the world's richest can avoid some of them for example look at the us or wealthy metropolitan areas are making income gains as rural areas lagged behind since two thousand and thirteen the average income in the twenty five largest cities rose by eight point four percent according to the u.s. census bureau but for those who lived outside of those areas the average income only grew by five point three percent now it's certainly not just the u.s. that has an inequality problem in fact the secretary general of the o.e.c.d. said he years ago that we've already reached a tipping point worldwide that might be the case bianca let's talk more about the us what you were mentioning to us what are some of the factors that play into the growing divide that you see here well according to new data from the census bureau
9:40 am
it sort of shows how the tech sector has had an inadvertent role in income inequality if you look at the tech hubs in the u.s. whether it's francisco seattle denver and charlotte they the tech sector is really booming there so it's created a lot of jobs now as a result the average income has grown by almost ten percent and is higher than the average across the board in the u.s. which is a good thing it's creating jobs helping those local economies but in the other cities and suburbs and in particular the rural areas that don't have the tech to benefit from they're not seen as much growth they're still having a little bit of growth since the recession but not as much and really hurts the areas that have already been impacted by the drop in manufacturing and so forth so it's just an example of how some. like tax havens certainly add to income inequality but there are also things that are a little less out of our control just the way that our economy changes which sectors sort of die down which new ones pop up which also of course makes it harder to one quantify the scope of income inequality but also makes it harder for us to
9:41 am
argue and agree on a solution to fix it but as we're learning a little bit more about it thanks to this new research i mean where does the u.s. stand when you compare it to the rest of the world well definitely depends which measurement you use if you use the genie co-efficient which is a very popular method the u.s. is only we're number four in terms of countries with the most income inequality so we're pretty high up there and in fact we're getting to the point where the u.s. is being used as an example as of what not to do in australia another nation that's struggling with income inequality there was a report from a trade organization that basically said our economy is going to become americanised if we don't stop so they're saying we're going to see jobs with less pay more hours less holidays and everything if we don't try and fix this all right . thank you so much for that report. all right time now for a quick break stick around when we return a defense contractor giant takes to the skies and space with a multibillion dollar buy of a rocket maker we look at what will drive president trump's decisions on
9:42 am
immigration his heart or the country's wallets and as we go to break the numbers at the closing bell. well you know they were kind of adopted because we were called along. there.

9:44 am
i. defense contractor giant northrop grumman is setting its sights high in the sky with a billion dollar buy of a rocket maker orbital eighty k. the deal announced monday details northrop paying seven point eight billion dollars in cash for the company setting orbitals shares soaring more than one thousand percent before opening bell northrop also absorb orbitals one point four billion in debt now orbital is more than a rocket maker it's also heavily involved in the missile defense business at a time when conflict with north korea is putting a bright spotlight on the industry orbitals defense system group includes development of advanced missile interceptors the deal boosts northrop's presence in the space and missile business orbital has billion dollar contracts with both nasa
9:45 am
and the army along with contracts with the u.s. missile defense agency now the deal is still subject to regulatory approval and is expected to close the first half of next year the money shouldn't be an issue though northrop should be able to easily handle the seven point eight billion dollars price tag in two thousand and seventeen the company expects to make about thirty billion dollars in sales. another u.s. company though is a ferry as well as we start the week general motors has been hit by a labor strike in canada with workers walking off the job at an automotive plant the union has made it clear their beef is beyond just wages and working conditions it's about survival alex the heil of it is in toronto for us with this one alex it seems like talks between g.m. and the union that they were going well what happened well into this happened at the factory just both to say about two hours outside of toronto or to have a place called in your soul three thousand workers work walked out the decision was

made at eleven pm on sunday night to do this and when you look at the breakdown for workers who supported this was ninety nine point eight percent of workers signed off on this in august saying if that they could not reach a deal they're going to walk out now if you talk to g.m. they say everything was going fantastic it was going the direction was supposed to go for some reason these guys got up and left g.m. started writing this off as something that is dead in the water there so they're hoping that that's a good ones day or later in this week that they could at least have a tentative deal but for now what the workers are asking for and i'll break it down for you is higher wages better better better benefits as well as more investment in the assembly line in this factory now this factory makes the equinox the chevrolet equinox the vehicle itself they used to make the terrain as well and that went to mexico so equinox is the bread and butter of this establishment that's what the workers know that's what they want to have entrenched here by seeing that g.m.
9:47 am
makes a bigger investment they all know that their jobs are more secure they don't want to see this truck or this car going down to down south in mexico as well so that's the demand out there making and that's where survival is the question ok when you say that it's really about survival that actually ties into the nafta agreement doesn't it we just does another six actually this right so they would. you see all this all of these cars are in the trucks going for manufacturing in mexico it's all within the nafta agreement canada mexico and the states and if you look at this graphic sort of gives you a good idea of what is going on here so you look since two thousand and four look at mexico i mean they shot up in auto manufacturing big time while canada and the us i mean canada had a massive drop there all of our cars we've talked about this before and trucks parts are made either in canada and the states and mexico crosses borders all the time when it comes to nafta now that we have the nafta negotiations up again canada
9:48 am
has started to make a little bit of a push here and that's a lot of a has to do with the right to work that we're seeing in the states so in the states if you are in a union or if you are work for a company let's say like g.m. you have you could opt out of paying union dues and still the reuse basically represent to you either way what candidates say is that this is basically not fair use have to be union your workers have to pay their union dues and because of that it's obviously that these states there's an advantage over the canadians if there you don't have this this how can you put this hurdle of a union also canada wants to see mexican workers paid the same as canadian american workers for the exact same job that they're doing so we want to see a level playing field and that's going to be obvious and there could be a lot of head butting around that with president trump and with his team so right now the way it stands even with a negotiation like you're seeing what's happening in her shawl and terrio this really touches upon many facets that deal with all of nafta so that's
9:49 am
a can of the states and of course mexico right artie's alcohol addiction toronto for us thank you so much thank you. as u.s. president donald trump works to keep jobs in the u.s. some of his other policy goals are working to remove workers from the country whether it's mixed messaging on dreamers those immigrants his parents illegally brought them into the u.s. . children or aims to cut legal immigration have some economists are worried trump's immigration stance will harm the economy not protect it let's bring in marshall our back for his take he's a research associate at levy economics institute marshall thanks for being here i want to first talk about these dreamers and dhaka the deferred action for childhood arrivals program because it sounds like trump is going to work with the dems to keep these eight hundred thousand some immigrants in the country trying said he would deal with these dreamers with a big heart but is there an economic reason to keep them around. where he
9:50 am
says a lot of things. not sure he's displayed much of a big heart and it's almost as if wherever deals with him seems to get the word they want to hear so i'm not sure whether we can take his public statement seriously but i think it's more more to the point. it's politically toxic for either party to be seen to be deporting over eight hundred thousand people from the country even though it might please a hard core of his radical followers the main thing is that you know this is a really the legacy of a problem that's been existence since one thousand nine hundred six the last time we had a. immigration amnesty under ronald reagan and the problem and i think the duck has tied up with this is that you had. amnesty given to a over three million illegal immigrants but the quid pro quo was that you would
9:51 am
somehow regain control of the borders and and therefore restrict the flow of illegal immigration and ultimately what we ended up having was a an amnesty and there was no real reform on immigration or the immigration laws per se and that's created this bill to present this skepticism which is led to extreme measures such as the proposal for the wall and you know in a sense god. tied up with that as well as being tied up with the debt limit but we don't hear a lot about the immigration laws in this country changing we do hear a lot about that wall that you mentioned marshall what was the economic basis behind that though because you hear that you know terms pretty adamant about this he says the wall is going to happen whether it's tied to this legislation or that legislation that's going to be the case but then he's surrounded by experts that say well maybe that's not the most economic way to go with this that maybe there are some better ways at enforcing the border what say you. well look he says look
9:52 am
we're going to do the wall because when he's on the campaign when he was on the campaign trail or when he's on some rally in arizona he gets that's where he gets the biggest cheers and then he says and who's going to pay for it and they all scream out mexico well that's the case in why on earth do you need congress to appropriate money look there's no other than the fact that i suppose if you spend twenty five billion building a wall you're going to get some economic benefit from it in the sense of that it's an infrastructure spend unless of course it's mexicans building the wall that me that's the other possibility but he clearly it's a sound bite and i know that people say that you know will look good they they have a wall in israel and it's been very successful over there but you know that slightly different circumstances you're dealing with. millions of people that are hostile to israel's national security i don't think that's the case here with the mexicans by any stretch they want to participate in the american dream not destroy it and secondly look at the map i mean you know
9:53 am
a wall in israel wouldn't even cover you know one third of the texas border so i mean it's nonsensical and to your last point general john kelly who is now chief of staff and was originally appointed is homeland security said secretary himself said that a wall in itself won't get the job done it has become by and with border security and. maybe some form of higher surveillance more border control guards being hired so when you've got the former head of homeland security saying this and you've got a lot of moderate republicans and of course the democrats are also saying that they want to there willing to do a quid pro quo on the beefed up security another not to do the wall but the makings of a deal out there and at this point i think trump is more interested in just putting points on the board so to speak than having the wall per se even though there are people like rush limbaugh lauren and coulter who will be very upset with him that he doesn't actually physically construct a wall but he's also
9:54 am
a deal maker so we'll see if he decides to you know deal with the dems on that one but let's talk a little bit more about legal immigration now publicly back to bill that would slash the number of green cards that were awarded each year in half and it would be implemented on a merit based system which had mixed reviews and it included giving preference to those speaking english can we see examples in other parts of the world where they've been using a point based immigration system and and what is been the result of that. yes well i'm from canada originally by the way i came here legally and used a lawyer just for the record i am a green card holder but look at canada australia are two problem if examples of countries that do use a points based system and yes in the case of canada for example which i know pretty well the ability to speak english in french which of the two official languages is a big factor in the point system but there are also it's also skills based so there
9:55 am
are a number of things where that are put on it but but it is not discriminatory and it's working its work very well it commands a lot of political legitimacy precisely because it is perceived to be neutral as far as race or religion color creed goes and you know it would seem to be a very very good model for the u.s. to adopt in fact in the you. they as they've been speaking about breaks it and what sort of. policies they'd like to follow they too have made reference to the points based immigration system so that would seem to me to be a much more sensible way for the us to go back to the way the immigration system here used to be very very skills based before the nine hundred sixty five that came into play real quick we only have about a minute left marshall but i wanted to ask him if we make the emphasis on skilled based immigration there's an argument out there that no one's going to take the low skilled jobs these are jobs that regular american citizens don't want what do you
9:56 am
think comes of that well the answer is if you pay a living wage you'll get americans to do the jobs i mean we fought a civil war over one hundred fifty years ago to abolish slavery so while whenever i hear this argument about americans won't do the jobs that. other people will do the question is do you want to pay a living wage would you want to pay slave wages we abolish slavery so let's let's pay a sensible wage and i guarantee you'll get americans to do them thank you so much for your take marshall our back research associate at levy economics institute appreciate your time thanks one thanks for having me. a rolling stone gathers no moss as the saying goes and right now in order to keep its brand alive magazine rolling stone is up for sale again for fifty years rolling stone has been a staple known for its music and pop culture journalism and for its iconic cover photos of celebs from john lennon to jennifer aniston however there's not enough star power to help rolling stones financial troubles the announcement comes six
