12:03 am
we can choose isolationism withdrawal and nationalism this is an option it can be tempting to us as a temporary remember if to our fears but closing the door to the word will not stop the evolution of the word it will not dollars but inflame the fruits of our citizens we have to keep our eyes wide open to the new risks right in front of us by mark and trump has been the around nuclear deal the french president has tried to encourage his u.s. counterpart not to throw out the agreement but improve on it as a white house correspondent kimberly hellcat reports. the president of the french republic. before a joint session of the u.s.
12:04 am
congress french president emmanuel macross argued the united states should remain part of the iran nuclear agreement it is true to say that this agreement. may know the address all concerns and very important concerns this is true but we should not abandon its without having some seen substantial and more substantial than said. a day earlier in meetings that the white house might cross suggested the current deal to limit iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief should be the cornerstone of a new supplemental agreement. and it would address trump's concerns beyond twenty twenty five including limiting iran's influence in the middle east and halting ballistic missile testing we can change and we can be flexible you know in life you have to be flexible so despite criticizing the existing iran agreement repeatedly
12:05 am
for years trump is now signaling he's open to recertify iran's compliance under the terms of the deal but only if his criticisms are addressed with the deadline for donald trump to make his decision just weeks away european leaders are conducting a high level lobbying effort on friday german chancellor angela merkel will be the next to visit the white house she'll work to persuade try to remain in the twenty fifteen iran deal but iran says a u.s. withdrawal will kill it tehran has threatened to respond by pulling out of another agreement the nuclear nonproliferation agreement on weapons. i'm wednesday iran's president question trumps ability to even comprehend the terms of any agreement show more color shift hot seat you don't have any background in politics you don't have any background in law you don't have any background on international treaties how can a tradesmen a merchant someone who builds towers for
12:06 am
a living make judgments about international affairs and well he's currently signaling he's open to the u.s. for maining in the deal negotiated with iran and five other world powers given his impulsive nature there's still time for trump to change his mind and follow through with threats to leave the iran deal kimberly health at al-jazeera at the white house. first two days in washington were characterized numerous backslaps handshakes and kisses with donald trump but what do french voters make of his close relationship with the u.s. president natasha butler reports from paris on the apparent blossoming burma. there was pomp and ceremony and displays of affection and of the words i like him a lot the apparent friendship between the french and american presidents was on full show during emmanuel machall state visit to washington politically the two men
12:07 am
have little in common but the liberal macro is determined to get on with his conservative counterparts we have to make a berth for years in france opinion polls suggest donald trump is unpopular but many people support mike ross approach. what on that they are great friends doesn't matter michael is the french president and he must create strong ties with the u.s. citizens and it's very important for france and for the u.s. and even for europe especially as trump seems to really appreciate president it's a sea chill to have good relations analysts say that macros courting of trump is seen by many french people as a political tactic mcroy is probably really doing of a strategy of trying to show from that he actually does respect him and to value the transatlantic relationship because at the end of the day from a european perspective every might not like the american president but the u.s. will always remain an important partner since micros election he has nurtured his
12:08 am
relationship with trump inviting him as france's guest of honor to last year's bastille day celebrations and talking regularly by phone mike ross says he was able to convince trump to keep u.s. troops in syria some people say that america is close mr trump is a risk because the u.s. president is so unpredictable but others say the french president has much to gain he can try and influence trump on important international matters such as the iran nuclear deal and it may help france's international standing rockwall seems to her very. well thought through diplomatic strategy which is to create the largest amount of flexibility for france by making sure the u.s. is on side micra will leave washington with few promises on a number of issues it's unclear for example whether trumbull impose u.s. trade tariffs on the e.u. or agree to an expanded iran nuclear agreement but if trump changes his mind on
12:09 am
either issue many people in france may feel the two look back slapping and smiles who was it natasha butler al-jazeera paris. or about this with joel rubin who's president of the washington strategy group and a former deputy assistant secretary of state thanks very much for coming on to algis there have just witnessed a masterclass in diplomacy really president lovering up to the president president trump heaping praise on him and then turning up at congress and basically setting out his own agenda and having a day get the u.s. president. yeah president mccrone really did demonstrate how global leaders should be in gauging a foreign power and he came here to washington did what he needed to do to get president trump on his side it's clear that there's a personal bond it's deep and it's deeper than any policy disagreements i believe
12:10 am
will will potentially cause problems with essentially this personal bond is going to be strong but at the same time mccrone also engaged democrats in congress in particular with his language and he really had them curing in on their feet so he got both sides liking him very much and i suppose that one of the questions will be will present micron's was that congress make any difference he was singing to that conversation where it is saying some of getting that the democrats on his side in congress is probably not going to really change the opinions of the republicans and indeed change opinions of the u.s. president. well smart foreign leaders understand that the american system requires engaging both parties not not ever can we really expect one party to dominate all of government and with midterm elections coming up soon it's quite possible the democrats will take one chamber of congress maybe even two so what
12:11 am
mccrone did by engaging president trump was essentially get the republicans on board and the executive branch and by engaging the democrats in this speech today he also showed that he could hear both sides but he did make a real eloquent police for the united states to come back into the global community and staying gauge that was his overarching theme and i do think it got a lot of attention in congress from both sides of the aisle now it used to was that may well of reviver eighty's and in downing street in the u.k. in those two ways with special relationship something that the u.k. has always had it has with the u.s. now front seems to be saying well it's actually as it's called the special relationship is that significant. it's quite clever and france and president mccrone really did lay in to the concept that france was there for the united states for the americans against. an oppressive country britain
12:12 am
clearly at the time was the corneal power and the french they stood with us and by calling out that relationship he is attempting to position himself as the leader and the go between we've seen this before however about a decade ago we saw as with tony blair where he tried to play this intermediary with the bush administration and it is fraught with risk what's a day looks good tomorrow could potentially turn against him tony blair was derided as bush's poodle and really less public how is the media treating his visit hair and they see him as as an equal to president trump. i think that the media is viewing him quite frankly is a breath of fresh air really we've had such a negative political environment in recent months in the last year plus that to have mccrone come in and appeal to president trump bring out the good side of president trump and appeal to congressional democrats really is a reminder to americans and the media and the political community that there are
12:13 am
