closer to. zero. and for you. this is really an attack on each sleuth itself is a lot of misunderstanding of what free speech is supposed to be about the context is hugely important setting the stage for a serious debate up front at this time on al-jazeera. out of the resignation at the white house national security adviser h.r. baster will be replaced by john bolton.
richelle carey this is out of their life and also coming up. it is the largest deficit of any country in the history of our world it's out of control beijing hits back after the u.s. slaps tariffs on china worth sixty billion dollars. prosecutors in peru asked a judge to stop president page republican ski from leaving the country after he announced his resignation. palestinian teenager has become a symbol of resistance to the israeli occupation strikes a plea bargain with prosecutors. u.s. national security adviser a troubling master has resigned from the u.s. president all trumped administration mass to replace michael flynn who was fired fourteen months ago the retired general was the second secure. adviser to the u.s.
president trumpet mcmaster both say the decision was mutual will be replaced by john bolton who has advised several republican presidents he's been a stern advocate for the use of military force against iran and north korea and it's become almost customary the trump makes decisions and announcements like this on twitter so this is what he tweeted i am pleased to announce that effective ninth of april john bolton will be my new national security advisor and i'm very grateful for the service of general h.r. being master who had an outstanding job i'm always remain my friend carefully how it has more now h.r. been masters time with the trump administration. general h.r. mcmaster will become the national security adviser he arrived at a tumultuous time just a month into his presidency trump had fired national security advisor michael flynn for lying to the vice president over his conversations with the russians it is both
diplomacy and sanctions working together but it wasn't long before make master was enveloped in his own controversy within months of his hiring many trump supporters wanted macmaster out after reports surfaced he were new to the security clearance of president barack obama's national security advisor susan rice they also blamed him for leaked white house conversations with world leaders even starting a hash tag fire mcmaster. although trump stood by his national security adviser publicly privately he reportedly clashed with the army general who didn't like trump's and disciplined style of governing but it was a comment at a security summit in germany in february that many believe was the beginning of the end following a department of justice indictment of thirteen russian nationals accused of interfering in the twenty sixteen u.s. election macmaster said this and as you can see with the f.b.i.
indictment the evidence is now really incontrovertibly and available in the public domain trump was reportedly livid tweeting that mcmaster forgot to add the results of the two thousand and sixteen election were not impacted or changed by the russians when secretary of state rex tillerson was fired and social media speculation began that mcmaster would be the next to go i'm really at a point where we're getting very close to having the capital other thing that i was twenty years ago h.r. mcmaster wrote a book called. dereliction of duty about how military generals failed to stand up to presidents during the vietnam war many believe it is this approach that cost me master his job after futile efforts to constrain the president kimberly hellcat al-jazeera washington maher john bolton now has served under several republican
administrations getting a reputation as a military hard liner as readily appeared on television advocating tough policy positions alton's argue for military action against a number of u.s. adversaries including north korea and wants the white house to take a strong stance against russia and in two thousand and fifteen new york times opinion column he called for air strikes against nuclear facilities in iran he's also written for is for books about a noted anti muslim american authors and while working in the second bush administration he was accused of manipulating intelligence reports he said saddam hussein to develop weapons of mass destruction in iraq a claim that was later proven untrue as a former u.s. associate deputy attorney general and he says foreign diplomacy will be at the bottom of john bolton's agenda. mr bolton was supporting airstrikes against iran well before two thousand and fifteen you know in the administration of george bush and mr bolton didn't see a war they didn't like it when he was at the united nations as an acting ambassador
there because he couldn't get confirmed by the senate he said you know diplomacy is useless it could might as well float out into the sea and sink i think what we can see is an escalation of tensions we have in the near future a decision by mr trump as to whether or not to continue to comply with the agreement with iran and other countries with restricting its nuclear ambitions and with mr bolton there it's likely that will be capsized i remember that earlier on mr bolton interviewed mr trump for being deputy secretary of state under mr tillerson and mr tillotson said no and mr bannon who was the last voice in the trump administration who had any sense of restraint on our military projection of force is now gone and he was the one who killed the bolton nomination to be deputy secretary of state and i think that with mr bolton now taking the national security adviser we're just going to have one policy woods is going to be confronted
everywhere at all places and all times and diplomacy is going to take a backseat beijing a setback at the u.s. president's order to impose sixty billion dollars worth of tariffs on chinese imports it's planning tariffs on three billion dollars worth of american products including pork and steel trump said on thursday the deficit with beijing was out of control and call for reciprocal trade arrangements trading in u.s. and asian stocks has been volatile because of fears of an all out trade war some people called a mere a tariff or a mere attacks just use the word reciprocal if they charge us we charge them the same thing. that's true it's got to be that's not the way it is for many many years for many decades it has not been that way and i will say the people we're negotiating with smilingly they really agree with us i really believe they cannot believe they've gotten away with this for so long let's go live to scott
high learning shanghai president trump the air saying smilingly that i think they actually agree with us that they've been getting away with this tell us what the actual reaction from the chinese government has been sky. or shell it's definitely not bath what have they they've been saying is that they've been warning that no one will benefit from a trade war and they've been saying this for the last couple of weeks but more specifically obviously over the last twenty four hours and they have encouraged the united states to move back from the brink is actually how they put it now as you mentioned you know it's one hundred twenty eight products imported here into china from the united states three billion dollars when you look at what the united states has done sixty billion dollars in tariffs obviously it's a lot smaller number and people have really kind of seen this as a measured response in other words they haven't gone the full guns yet they have threatened to do so they say if they're called in to do more they will do more but
right now it's kind of a measured response and they have been very encouraging of dialogue now this is something obviously hearing that rhetoric from president donald trump doesn't sound like they're really going to back down at all so there's a bit of concern that this could escalate but right now so far a stern but measured response from china ok you are in shanghai really the heart and soul of the market and the economy there what are people there say. yeah the commercial center of china right here know what they're saying and we've spoken to a couple of people on the streets here and it's been kind of very you know they're very concerned you know just as you can imagine any nation around the world when it appears as though it's being engaged in a trade war they're worried about chinese jobs they're worried about chinese companies so that's what they're focused on but also there's concern because of the two nations two largest economies in the world there's concern here that this could have a global impact and obviously that's going to impact the longer term of this nation
that is very you know on a very steep curve when it comes to development in the comes to growth so they're concerned that if this trade war goes on for a while and the economic impact on these two countries is is great that's going to prevent china from this trajectory that they're hoping the president xi jinping is hoping to continue with so there's that concern but right here you know the people on the streets of shanghai today hours after this news came out they're worried about jobs and they're worried about the companies based here ok scott live for us in shanghai scott thank you australia has so far been exempt from trots tariffs but prime minister malcolm turnbull says he remains hopeful that the u.s. and china can negotiate a satisfactory arrangement important thing is no one wins from tried will there's no doubt about that i think what they like or should be and supporting. good constructive negotiation president trump has talked about how much he respects
president xi but actually i'll be with them and i do too to maim say i do want every respect about side hot guys and and i and i you know i look forward to them being i will to negotiate but i don't want to speculate on actions that haven't been announced. debate has begun improves congress over whether to accept the president's resignation. announced he was stepping down on wednesday ahead of an impeachment vote over corruption allegations prosecutors have asked a judge to prevent him from leaving the country is guaranteed presidential immunity from prosecution until congress formally accept his resignation and the vice president martin sworn in to replace them are an essential as has the latest from lima. well these programs say they are furious at the way that the president seems game and never they say it's a shameful thing for the country for a president that had promised to love this very little they're also furious that
congressmen they say that the political class is all corrupt and there was an old congress meant to leave the most indignados we are angry at so much corruption in the country we don't agree with the president's resignation because now there is instability so if there's no president congressmen should also have to leave all the corrupt congressmen should go on the pelosi we're fed up we're tired it's about time the people rise to make a new constitution to have new leaders quote unquote well forty one percent. for both sides president doing fine so the president would have to take over the presidency and call for a general election that is unlikely that will happen because the bike faced a lot of delays the bad guys on his way to be a tool and he will be. running friday morning. still ahead on al jazeera. aren't you going along in relief from the
