donald trump begins his maiden speech to the u.n. general assembly with his america first mantra but ends up sounding rather like his predecessor did. paris is based in security measures by constructing a bulletproof glass wall around around the world's most popular monuments the eiffel tower sparking outrage online. syrian government forces crossed the euphrates river securing their advance india meeting close to take us back.
there it's seven pm here in moscow and you're watching r.t. international with me nicky aaron donald trump passed to live in his first address to the u.n. general assembly he began by emphasizing that his priority was promoting the interests of his nation as president of the united states i will always put america first. let's cross live to caleb more pain now to find out more caleb good to see you what more can you tell us. well there was quite a bit of confused messaging in donald trump's address to the united nations general assembly he began his remarks by using some of the rhetoric that's largely credited for him being elected talking about america first and the nation state and loyalty to one's country let's take a listen to that. the united states has great strength and patients but if it is
forced to defend itself or its allies we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea. it is time for the entire world to join us in demanding a veterans government and its pursuit of death and destruction in fact our country has achieved more against isis in the last eight months than it has in many many years combined. now following that as you just heard donald trump went into quite a bit of criticism of countries that he did not approve of he talked about iran he talked about venezuela he talked about the option of totally destroying north korea and when he invoked the united states many observers have noted that his rhetoric about the united states and its role in foreign interventions seemed
a lot like that of his predecessor there seem to be a common theme of the usa being that the country that would lead the world to go after what he called rogue states sounds very familiar let's take a listen to donald trump's words. we will fight together sacrifice together and stand together for peace the united states cannot solve the world's problems alone we must work together to make sure the benefits of such a group should or broadly shared so quite a bit of contradiction in donald trump speech he talks about hatriot ism nationalism the sovereignty tells people to be loyal to their country however that doesn't seem to apply to countries that he doesn't approve of be loyal to your country reject globalism unless it's a country that he doesn't like. ok thanks for that kenneth that's all he's speaking to his life from new york the mixed message is that from the u.s. president i think but let's discuss about the now with on guest mr monk element to represent the crisis or thinking that she's thank you for joining us live on ossie
international now do you think it's appropriate to speak about defending the interests of one particular nation america when speaking at the u.n. . well every nation has its national interest i think the problem for donald trump is that as your reporter was suggesting he sort of mixes the messages of his election campaign about putting america first and in a sense concentrating on domestic problems and not for instance in gauging in regime change with the rhetoric of george bush about axis of evil and barack obama about intervening in order to bring about democracy and flourishing better societies and in a sense we now have this combination of obama's red lines which maybe health care is about has already crossed crossed again and at the same time when almost north korean level of rhetoric of threatening to totally destroy a country and i think that's very dangerous for all the standing of the united states in the world because most people in the world are not sympathetic to the
north korean regime and to its nuclear program but if you associate the whole population of north korea with what the government does and you threaten to obliterate the whole country that i think is going to alarm all sorts of people around the world and other governments around the world so i think the problem with all trumps rhetoric is that it's very much american first american exceptionalism america is always right but there's a risk that he is going to trample upon the interests not only of countries he defines as rogue regimes but also warm other countries and fear they could fall into that category whatever they do. now yesterday i don't know tom spoke about u.n. reform and today he delivered a speech that sounds more like a lesson but well it really is are in order does reforming the u.n. to trump mean making get america's line. i think there is that underlying assumption that what america wants must necessarily be for the best and
also even if the americans have some particularly sensitive points about the missing administration of the u.n. about waste of money and some of its programs there is ascendancy not want to listen to anybody else's point of view when the americans call on other countries to show leadership it's that kind of language which is almost orwellian because it really means to do what washington wants and to show that the initiative to take it out first i don't again when we hear trump saying you putting america first he also wants the rest of the world to put america first and unfortunately even many friends the united states again say we're friendly we're allowed to say it's because we have to put our own countries first and so there is a danger whether it's about how do you run the u.n. and what its role is or just how to deal with a specific crisis in the world that trump could trample on the toes of his friends as well as perhaps put on the backs of other countries who might actually not necessarily want to find themselves in confrontation with united states but who will be along that his unilateral his her general and his bombast threatens not
only a specific country like north korea or iran or venezuela or a growing list of countries but were that your own country might be somewhere down that list even if it hasn't yet made it to the president's tweet tweeting of a of a threat was also interesting is how you know donald trump is in the past openly criticized obama's policy quite a lot so why would he is he uses speech today in large respects resemble the speeches of his predecessor. well trump course is under considerable domestic pressure the american the stablish went including the media but also many even of his own officials didn't want him to be president and he has seen many of his supporters from the election campaign period before stoute or have left office and so he's very much isolated inside the government of the united states. and i think it's a way of protecting himself for the coming years that he's really reverted to the bipolar policy of the democrat and republican elites over the previous decades and
so in a sense what we're seeing is that trump has become simply obama's third term and hard to see including possibly roll or a car bomb drawing red lines that are very difficult to enforce because they risk real war obama did this over syria tramples done it over north korea however the difference difference might be that trump and general mattis has also been very belligerent in the last twenty four hours may decide that prestige means they can't be seen to back down or to take another slap in the face from north korea so launching a missile after the speech will have to do something militarily which could of course unleash a catastrophic chain of events so there is a danger that even if trump we know we've learned to live with obama and bush being involved in interventions abroad but trump could intervene in one of the places that could really explode in our faces indeed and if you try to please everybody is going to end in a lot of contradictions as well that's mark owen director of the crisis research
institute thank you for your time that. the. french capital is basting security with a bullet proof glass wall to be erected around the eiffel tower the world's most visited monuments now looks more like a construction site the glass wall is said to be built on the two sides of the tower facing the river center the other two sides will be protected by metal fence is the plan has sparked heated 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 eiffel tower 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 they're going to be putting the plants around it last 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 and this is a black swan is well as if it was an idea whose time. you were pin cities generally have also been basing their counter-terror measures but lynn and malone are among those that have installed special concrete barriers in the streets while nice introduce barriers offer the best deal day laurie attack their person also introduced measures off the attacks in the heart of london but we spoke to john laughlin director of studies at the institute of democracy and cooperation in paris who says the e.u. should focus on its external borders rather than bolstering internal measures. we have taken down in europe national borders we don't control anymore certainly not in the showing in 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 a house and the result is you have to seek refuge in the bathroom 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 streets they haven't been around tourist destinations like the arsal tower so if the eiffel tower is now protected by a glass wall a potential terrorist driving a truck or whatever will simply go to the shows that you see or to some other street. internet trolls should be banned from voting in elections according to a new proposal by the u.k.'s electoral watchdog it comes after revelations that the vast majority of british m.p.'s faced online abuse in the twenty seven thousand 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 i've had death threats i've had people tweeting that i should be hung so two years ago when i first became ian p. it wants you to talk to p. you actually write. so let. me put it in the you know to put a stamp on it and that you go to the post box press button and you read. people to be sure which isn't right 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 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 is such 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 over the asli it comes with a big kaviak 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
someone have to be online in order to be banned from voting in the general election and of course twitter users were quick to react to the potential ban pointing out that the country is heading down a dangerous path to vist and social justice campaigner george barda believes the u.k. already has enough laws to punish internet abuse. there are plenty of laws already on the statute books that are used you know we can we count month in month out to prosecute people for offenses on on twitter and on social media so it's not as if the government lacks tools at this stage to punish people there is incredible worry over slee that any law that tried supposedly to deal with this problem ended up punishing lots and lots of people for simply expressing views that contrary to the establishment really is and where to reason may said in her statement on the issue that there's a clear line between personal abuse and little scrutiny i'm not sure in practice
that that would work out that way. popular encrypted message service called telegram has found itself in hot water after a man claiming to be a former employee turned whistleblower and lifted the lid on what's being reportedly going on there. telegram is a massive russian international messaging app in february of last year they in fact published some of their numbers saying that it had over one hundred million users active users every month and fifteen billion messages were being sent over the platform every day but while it's wildly popular it's also had its fair share of controversy one of its most popular features is the security that it provides its users given that it uses a very high level of encryption but that of course has been a factor that's been sort of a catch twenty two for the company given the security has also attracted terrorists to use the platform it's believed that telegram has been used by jihadists in
france in the middle east and even closer to home here in russia it's thought that those who carried out the attack in st petersburg earlier this year were in fact using telegram and that popularity among terrorists even prompted russian regulatory body to threaten to block the platform altogether in the country right now we have a man claiming to be an ex employee of telegram attacking the company and an online post he claims to have been fired wrongfully over a personal matter and he then published a lot of information about the company on line including conversations with the founder and also outlined one instance where he says that the company used illegal shortcuts in order to transport their servers their computer servers in europe which is likely part of what has led the messaging platform to sue the man for disclosing confidential information to the tune of one point seven million dollars the syrian government is advancing on eisel after crossing the euphrates river near we've got more on that story after this short break stay with us.
what holds if you should. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and she. want to which. she'd like to be this is what. reasonable people. interested in the water. should. in case you're new to the game this is how it works my economy is built around quite. different racial groups from
washington washington media the media. voters elected businessmen to run this country business because. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. welcome back now syrian government forces have successfully crossed the euphrates river near dia to be securing their advance against islamic state in the area let's take a look at the map of the air you can see that the territory controlled by ice so is it rapidly reducing and i say is being repelled by kurdish rebel fighters from this area hit well correspondent is in syria hey brings us more on the operation. heavy units such as tanks and armored personnel carriers across to the eastern side
of the russian air force had spent days clearing the way i see resistance in the area as well as destroying isis to ground. units across was. various sources isis hunting a detachment that is deployed and trained to fight against isis exclusively it his apparently be tough going. villages on the eastern side of the euphrates river but isis have carried the counter attacks and resisted fiercely sending suicide bombers as 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 jihadists. captured but they aren't letting up the pressure they seem determined to throw the syrian military back across the euphrates river something
that will be much harder to do that the russians have said they've set up a bridge a temporary military bridge across the euphrates river by which the syrian military could move the coming days will be tense however because the syrian military is now kilometers away from us by forces so it will be important to watch for any sort of escalation to avoid any unnecessary incidents. and they say they expect the exclusive pictures we have from the recently liberated syrian town of hama province they were very islamic states on munition death pose and ahmed very close found and by the minute they fled the area and that work of tunnels was also discovered which linked the site. to be hitting. new heights with nothing and no one off limits anymore the latest
victim is the emmy award supposedly an event on that excellence in television however this year's show which was held on sunday was used to muzzle asli mock the trumpet ministration host stephen colbert was certainly joined on stage by the president's former press secretary sean spicer and spice they 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 or trump's advisor lashed out at the situation warnings that televised events have become quote very politicized adding it's not helping their ratings but when it comes to politics in the u.s. life at the moment the seemingly no escape. tired of politics. and in the past and i think that interested in taking the government to buy well it seems there's nowhere to hide looking for two days with a focused it's showering and messages on the weather channel home page buying a new comic surprise surprise superman this 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 but there's one side and his wife the premise a white nationalist protesters if that's your stand up. shows that you are racists 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 for what you want the red or the blue pound. it's just my boy this goofy little stinker he loves all things alec and wants to be 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 reason every awards the emmy award moore's 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 section out what is dumping
the body and any time you can work and tease trying to present any evidence the hand usual and not on the dog gentle to the weather channel that are jugend you get a pass extra points for you. russia and belarus the currently holding joint military drills thousands of troops and almost a thousand units of combat hardware are involved causing a stir internationally. from russia's baltic fleet to taking part in the large scale drills the maritime
maneuvers to simulate and its heart from enemy act croft helicopters and paratroopers are also involved in the exercises western media and politicians has wanted to hear exaggerated the numbers taking part also claiming the drills are not being performed in a transparent manner international observers invited by the russian side gave their assessments. the saw is likely what was given during the briefing we sold a scenario that was originally prepared also the figures we were presented before we sold to be didn't look like. terrorist groups more defensive and hard to take a. really good combination of all kind of board well thanks for being with us this half hour and do join us again at the top of the hour with my colleague neil harvey in the meantime get in touch and say you're following us on facebook and twitter.

heard in case you're new to the game this is how it works not the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington washington controls the media the media control over the voters elected the businessman to run this country business equals power who must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. this winter with me and many. of the muslims. i knew but i. know both of it was a problem but i guess what kind of scientists you. see a bump on a hand just in the sea or.
assuming you know me so what a monkey man. what hot it is that cannot. be can update the software when they are lit and that. there might be any numbers to show it will be coming and i do feel. the. suburbs it's over but ross. is that he saw about the army. but i feel that i'm going to be not going to let you know when i'm most of. us a little on. the
video. what had been the what the hotel how a shot in modoc the irish. can i know we will play. the. occasional little sob. story from any army and this being the end of it when i. was remember. them additional. on. my mind up to. one hundred percent because it was a good job you did. yeah but that's not going. to finish. with. no one in college and dash to lead them out of this.
i. don't understand. what the animal. we don't feel. the. and i'm on the on the can. plot i know much more. than i'm. going to. watch the. live shot in the show to. name a few. that the two need that i would need. to see the thought that i would need to be but that. will still be going to be the mode hard on my definition we're going to know but
passage of the question to level that up and then she didn't leave you with that then we. brought that up with other than the shift to the shot of it throw it robin out of can seem so. bad but clinically nestle queen into a deal shall blockheads just how. out of the she did how to nation in june in the hague. late then i want to show they haven't. told. anybody and there.
were no. i guess there are you cold air tomorrow if you say the night in there will be very. every time a terrorist attack happens all these people. they're screaming and i says that someone needs to do something against them someone needs to do something against them and for me was like yeah why don't we do something against them because it's our problem islamic states claims it was behind them on just a terror attack on our top story group from from bangladesh. they killed the priest by cutting his throat on the russian airliner in the sinai desert during two hundred twenty four i says acting community in every country and it's like people are paying attention for one day two days. acting as if everything in normal and. that's not just not right.
ten years of military experience that will stream to their professional snipers. are. the first isis video i saw of kids maybe ten twelve thirteen years old and they were trying to train how to shoot and it was so cool because they used schumann's as targets living humans as targets. that was the moment i realized ok this is really really bad actually seeing that things shall let the synthetic caffrey out of the way for them is busy inshallah. it will. be over the hour around it. but still.
there is you know that is how little left about the. light like you. liked it doesn't feel good and i get that. but unless you are. very good at. all you. know that. there was. a cry for david when i saw someone on our team actually having both of his feet from the knees down just got blown off and i was like ok i cannot live with this i can't live in a wheelchair and i told my two friends their combat medics if you guys see me
stepping on a mine and i lost my legs just in pain killer skin macadam in you know turn to it's just let me die happy. go to. a lot of it didn't help my life build up a blog or it. goes all. right one point i found this book and germany at a train station and it said something like this guy joined. by p.t. ok i have to go with that when i'm back home and i try to apply and it worked out. when i told my girlfriend she was like you there you go to syria or you stay with me but. if you leave you leave me too and i said yeah ok i have to do this why. i think sometimes in life you have to.
figure out what your purpose is so i had a very comfortable life for a long time and enjoyed that but. for me there always was just it was the coal inside. and whatever i did. it was always there. and since i'm here it's gone it's completely gone. oh good. there's nothing in it you just get it but in the barrel. it was bruce could be just you know. the story study still i do understand what you know. what happened was. that those that die in it would like the room. and i said don't worry about it
if you don't like the one thing that is actually me was my kid. to go but i let your game be told well will you let it to me on the first want that to rain before you get on the plane the second one of the on the plane no one when you get. on the first lead is that if you're reading this before you board a plane you turn around right now nobody's going to be mad at you everything will be the same. they led to you on the plane but if you want to come back and the third letter was ok. and just so you know while i'm riding that you're playing with my daughter in the kitchen and i can hear you saying. to her mama it's not the lol. oh. i'm paul do you look at me i'm. ran away. that's when i really.
all. you got it was. when i tried to leave police was showing up at my house and they told me ok fighting with. ok but be prepared we will not help you in any kind of way and i was like ok i can do that no problem but something's changed in the last few months i know four guys in germany being sent to prison for murder for killing isis guys dash a few days after i arrived in syria my mom told me all police looking after you so awesome friends in the police and they were saying to me you're in terrorist there's no the whole world is watching terrorists. and there are a few people who actually come here and fight and the thought of punishing people
when they go back home it makes me really actually know there is no chance i'm going back to germany right now and probably not even in the next five to ten years . and it's it's it's. still you on the idea that dropping bombs brings peace to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles that they're going. to do thought spread a tell you that gossip that probably but it's most important. that. you are not cool enough to buy their product. all the hawks that we are already walking. medication is widespread on the us market and a frequent cause of death. like everything was ashes my
family was literally coming unglued i had actually planned. to commit suicide watch all who has made antidepressants so commonly used we were doing what the doctors told us to do we were being responsible and what the real side effects. was. when i did was done on a cocktail of legal drugs. just because something's legal doesn't mean it's. all the crimes are being committed today on wall street talked about like lloyd blankfein and all the sights of say we're not committing any crimes because even though he's doing the same crimes that sent them to bankers to jail in the one nine hundred eighty s. trying to say it was a long process they got government to change the law so that those crimes are not he legal anymore so he's right he's not breaking the law anymore because he changed
the law to make what was illegal and legal. begins his maiden speech at the un general assembly with his america first mantra but something rather like he's trying to say. this is greasing security measures by constructing a bulletproof glass wall around the world's most popular monument. outrage online. syrian government forces cross the euphrates river securing their advance and moving closer to u.s. bank forces.
very good if. you're watching international. trump has delivered his first address to the u.n. general assembly he began by emphasizing that his priority was promoting the interests of his nation as president of the united states i will own his put america first yes as you just heard donald trump opened his remarks at the u.n. general assembly by invoking the phrase america first and using some of the nationalist and isolationist rhetoric that is largely a credited for getting elected he invoked the need to put the needs of the usa above the needs of the world his focus on america's sovereignty and american jobs and america's economy however from there he shifted and began talking about a number of different countries around the world let's take a listen to what came next the united states has great strength and patients but if it is forced to defend itself or its our lives we will have no choice but to
totally destroy north korea. it is time for the entire world to join us in demanding a veteran's government and its pursuit of debt. and destruction in fact our country has achieved more against isis in the last eight months than it has in many many years combined yes donald trump after invoking america first went on a tirade against a number of different countries he criticized venezuela he talked about the option of totally destroying north korea he talked against iran he talked against cuba he criticized the government of syria and accused them of using chemical weapons a number of statements were made and many people noticed that when he talked about the role of the united states in confronting countries he didn't approve of his rhetoric was not that different from that of his predecessor let's listen to donald trump talking about the role of the united states on the global stage we will fight
together sacrifice together and stand together for peace the united states cannot solve the world's problems alone we must work together to make sure the benefits of such integration are broadly shared so quite a bit of contradiction in donald trump's speech he talks about patriotism nationalism the sovereignty tells people to be loyal to their country however that doesn't seem to apply to countries that he doesn't approve of be loyal to your country reject globalism unless it's a country that he doesn't like. the french capital is boosting security with the bulletproof glass wall to be erected around the eiffel tower the world's most visited monument now looks more like a construction site the glass wall is said to be built on the two sides of the tower facing the river seine the other two sons we protected by a metal fences plan a spot heated reaction we've been expressing outrage at the counter terror measures
. these sing bars makes me more free than anything and the way this is structuring now makes me feel almost. because of the bay area. more inviting. for your protection but also we don't want you to feel that this is. us that the government is trying to respond to try to make it seem more say. but i also feel like the government at the same time is using these as measures to beat on our privacy personal security in order to make it seem like it's worse if you. know one it's one hundred percent that the government doesn't like people doing security measures that are over overbearing believe. me. i think that's just
a way to keep pressure on people. european cities generally have also been boosting their counterterrorism measures berlin and milan are among those that have installed special concrete barriers in the streets while nice introduced barriers after the field a lauria tank there britain also introduced measures after attacks in the heart of london we spoke to john laughlin director of studies at the institute of democracy incorporation in paris he says that he should focus on its external borders rather than on bolstering internal measures we have taken down in europe national borders we don't control anymore certainly not in the shang in 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
a house and the result is you have to seek refuge in the bathroom 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 eisel tower so if the eiffel tower is now protected by a glass wall a potential terrorist driving a truck or whatever will simply go to the shows that you see or to some of the street. internet trolls should be banned from voting in elections now that's according to a new proposal made by the u.k. the electoral watchdog it comes after revelations that the vast majority of british m.p.'s faced online abuse in the twenty seven thousand 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 had death threats people are should you choose to go not just because you can see it will. be that she's right to let. me put it in the you know to put a stamp on it and that you go to the post books. and she's read was abuse which those two years ago people didn't switch and. 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 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 over the asli it comes with a big caviar 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
. the users were quick to react to the potential byrne pointing out that the country is heading down a dangerous path to this and social justice campaign the george barda believes the u.k. already has enough laws to punish internet abuse. there are plenty of laws already on the statute books that are used you know we can we count month in month out to prosecute people for offenses on on twitter and on social media so it's not as if the government lacks tools at this stage to punish people there is incredible worry over slee that any law that tried supposedly to deal with this problem ended up punishing you know lots and lots of people for simply expressing views the contrary to the establishment views and where to reason may said in her statement on the issue that there's a clear line between personal abuse and political scrutiny i'm not sure in practice that that would work out that way the popular encrypted message this telegram has found itself in hot water after a man claiming to be
a former employee turned whistleblower lifted the lid on what's been reportedly going on. telegram is a massive russian international messaging app in february of last year they in fact published some of their numbers saying that it had over one hundred million users active users every month and fifteen billion messages were being sent over the platform every day but while it's wildly popular it's also had its fair share of controversy one of its most popular features is the security that it provides its users given that it uses a very high level of encryption but that of course has been a factor that's been sort of a catch twenty two for the company given the security has also attracted terrorists to use the platform it's believed that telegram has been used by jihadists in france in the middle east and even closer to home here in russia it's thought that those who carried out the attack in st petersburg earlier this year were in fact using telegram and that popularity among terrorists even prompted russian
regulatory body to threaten to block the platform altogether in the country right now we have a man claiming to be an ex employee of telegram attacking the company and an online post he claims to have been fired wrongfully over a personal matter and he then published a lot of information about the company on line including conversations with the founder and also outlined one instance where he says that the company used illegal shortcuts in order to transport their servers their computer servers in europe which is likely part of what has led the messaging platform to sue the man for disclosing confidential information to the tune of one point seven million dollars . syrian government forces have successfully crossed the euphrates river resorts actively securing their advance against the islamic state in the area and take a look here a very you can see the territory controlled by. gray that's really juicy and now
also are still being repelled by could rebel find it does appear as the of a correspondent for brings us more now on the operation. heavy units. across the east. spent days clearing away. resistance in the area destroying isis. units across was. various sources. a detachment that is. trained to fight against isis exclusively to his apparently tough. villages on the eastern side of the euphrates river but isis have carried the counterattack resisted fiercely sending suicide bombers as well as vehicles packed with explosives in an effort to destroy the syrian forces isis
has also according to reports significant casualties. captured but they aren't letting up the pressure they seem determined to draw. back across the euphrates river. that the russians have said they've set up a bridge a temporary military bridge across the euphrates river. the syrian military could move the coming days will be. because the syrian military. forces so it will be important to watch for any sort of. to avoid any unnecessary incidents.
welcome back that's return to our top story this hour donald trump has delivered his first address to the u.n. general assembly. is my guest he's an international human rights expert joins me on the line good speak to you dan so donald trump we hear him talking about putting america first defending the interests of one particular nation at a gathering of the u.n. which by its very nature was set up to bring countries together is that appropriate
. no i don't think it's appropriate it really shows a town deafness. in don. tromp that he can't even read his audience which as you say are the nations of the world it's a body. is designed to. encourage cooperation between countries and primarily to avoid war and the threat of war which of course trumping gauged in while he was on stage that is the other war against korea. and another thing that doesn't make sense maybe you can clarify trump says that america will put itself first he called another world leader but that country's first but then attacks north korea and iran for what some people would say he's doing the same kind of thing putting their own country's interests first how do you sort of conflate those those arguments in making some kind of sense. yes well of course you're correct not only are we accusing them of
things that we do we using them of doing things that we do one hundred times over you know we begrudge north korea for having a few nuclear weapons when we have more nuclear weapons in any country on earth and of course are engaged in a one trillion dollar modernization of those weapons i don't know what work using iran of to be honest it's lost upon me they do. engage on their borders they do have regional interests that they protect. but i don't see them as a threat to anyone they're abiding by the nuclear deal everyone agrees with that. so you know trump mentioned the problem with rogue states in the world in my view the united states is the biggest rogue state on earth. yes they don't trump spoke about u.n. reform does reforming the u.n.
mean that it needs to do more of the things that the u.s. would like to do. i would think just the opposite to me i'd like to see you when that frankly would rediscover article two for the u.n. charter which again forbids force and the threat of force except in very exceptional circumstances the us has whittled away at that article for years i would like to find to see a un reformed that would be able to stop the us from carrying out aggressive war throughout the world again in in accordance with the original intent and with the wording of the united nations charter. was a was a big critique of barack obama and his policies people today have been saying that it was sounding very a bomb what do you think. well i would say he
sounded obama ask without the polish that obama had but yeah i mean obama himself. was very quick to threaten other countries and frankly to engage in aggressive war of his own libya probably being the most. prominent example of that. in a way the one thing i prefer about trump is that he is frankly has taken off the kind veneer that obama had. and in it least has shown the terrible u.s. policies around the world for what they are every. so that's one obama would say the same things but it always sounded nice or. good speak to thanks for joining us on all things a national bank of all the international human rights experts. the political politicized that's going to come out the politicization of u.s.
society appears to be hitting new heights with nothing and no one off limits and the more the latest victim is the emmy award supposedly independency on a t.v. show so than sunday was used to mercilessly mock the. old bear with me joining the stage by the president's former press secretary rice want to use the occasion to reference his work at the white house something critics suggested into little out of place at a t.v. awards ceremony. in terms of visor lashed out at the situation warning such televised events have become quote very politicized adding it's not helping the ratings when it comes to politics in the u.s. at the moment seemingly no escape. tired of politics. in the past and i think that interested in taking the government to buy well it seems there's nowhere to hide looking for two days with a full cost it's 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 a defender 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 this one found in his white supremacy white nationalist protesters f.s.u. stand up. shows that you are racist surely trusty old sport can save us but you don't have to be police to understand what the situation is why not give the black lives matter of movement 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 . he's politike so literally everywhere. maybe the show to of the big screen in the family comedy is the way for what you want the red or the blue pound.
it's just my boy this goofy little stinker he loves all things elephant wants to be 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 emmy award worse one of the worst ratings. ever why because even any television own rewards program they way political in the united states middle america mainstream they have no conception of what this is done by.
any time you can work anti trump into first any of the in any jle from the dog channel to the weather channel that are judy and you get a pass extra points for you. russia and belarus the currently holding joint military drills thousands of troops and almost a thousand units of combat howard were involved causing a stir internationally. warships
from russia's baltic fleet are taking part in the large scale drills the maritime maneuvers simulates an attack for him and then the aircraft helicopters and paratroopers are also involved in the exercises some western media of it led to the drills are not being performed in a transparent manner international observers invited by the russian side gave their assessment. the soil is likely what was given during the briefing we sold the scenario that was originally prepared also the figures we were presented before we sought to be didn't look like. a terrorist group more defensive to take a. good combination of all kind of board. thanks for staying with us this evening on r.t. international don't forget you can check us out. on facebook twitter and of course we're always there we plenty more stories on our website that is our.
guys are. looking forward to. this is what happens to pensions in britain. as a report. just . with the with me in a minute i can on the last get a little bit because well plus i'm a lawyer but i you. know both of it was done but i guess we're kind of the scientists you. see a bump on a hand there's no fear of the south a little bit is the.
blue you won't get a specific good area for immigrants it's hit and miss we never really know for sure but this has been a active area. becky so i. know. when i started no i did. prescribe medication is widespread on the u.s. market and a frequent cause of death at that point in my life. like everything was ashes my family was literally coming unglued i had actually planned. to commit some site what or who has made antidepressants so commonly used we were doing what the doctors told us to do we were being responsible and what the real side effects why
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 nothing to blame we have that a whole lot more so stand by boom bust start right now.
and it's 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 dollar 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 in. gold 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 countries like russia 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
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
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 an 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
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 nations we must ensure that no one and no member state shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden. militarily or for the meanwhile u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson and russian foreign minister sergei lavrov met
sunday 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.
gas' list reporting in new york trinity chavez r.t. 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 one 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 especially 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. the united nations during his campaign trump at one point even said the united nations is not a friend of democracy it's
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 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
data showed just how much the world's wealthy have stashed away machining 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 of that money isn't spread out evenly over half of it stashed away 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. decline there on the other hand they've been on the rise in asia there was also
an increase in the us so it's still below the average so with the exception of 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 are 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
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 sharyn 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 affected by the drop in manufacturing and so forth so it's just an example of how something like tax haven 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 died 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 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'll look at what will drive president decisions on immigration his heart or the country's wallets and as we go to break at the closing bell. prescribe medication is widespread on the u.s. market frequent cause of death. like everything was ashes my family was literally coming unglued i had actually planned. to commit suicide watch all who has made antidepressants so commonly used we were doing what the doctors told us to do we were being responsible and what the real side effects
. was. what i did was. illegal. just because something's legal doesn't mean it's. the one word that describes american politics today is divisions the line that divides liberals from conservatives is deep and even worrisome to make things worse there are some of the same dividing lines within the major political parties can these breaches the mend. please talk of selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings peace to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles they don't believe the new socks credit tell you that they'll be gossiping probably less files of the most important news today. as he tells me you are not cool enough to buy their product. these are the
hawks that we along with our audience will watch. well you know they were kind of adopted because we were. there. next to the harper one sheep and it's. the little self to be told already ninety percent of the dark and if. you. do it several times a day. you get an idea you. have to understand we can still use to. be with this or be used
or you are. doing this because i want the future. generations to have enjoyed the ocean. 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. northrop's presence in the space and missile business orbital has billion dollar contracts with both nasa 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 h. 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
a factory just opened say about two hours outside of toronto or how 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 and for some reason these guys got up and left g.m. started writing this off as something that is it 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 train 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. 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 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 or 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 obviously there's going to 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 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 darker 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 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 tied
up with this is that you had. given to a over three million illegal immigrants but the quid pro quo was that you would somehow regain control of the borders and and therefore restrict the flow of illegal immigration and ultimately what we ended up having was a mystery and there was no real reform on immigration or the immigration laws per se and that's created this bill to present skepticism which has led to extreme measures such as the proposal for the wall and has you know in a sense got. 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 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 if that's the case and 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 mean that's the other possibility but he clearly it's a sound bite and i know that people say that you know well look at 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 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 a wall in israel wouldn't even cover you know one third of the texas border so i mean it's nonsensical and 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 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 beefed up security another no could do the wall 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 the wall but he's also 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 illegally and and used to 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 points system but there are also it's also skills based so there 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. 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 that 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 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 time thank you 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
