2:02 am
well the president of france has used a speech to a joint session of congress to urge the u.s. to reject the nationalism and preserve the iran nuclear deal. to save a three minute standing ovation as he arrived in the chamber his speech was critical of the u.s. president's agenda despite the two share and warm relations on state visit let me say we have two possible ways head we can choose isolationism withdrawal and nationalism this is an option it can be tempting to us as a temporary remitted to all fields but closing the door to the word will not stop the evolution of the word it will not dolls but inflame the fritters of all citizens. we have to keep our eyes wide open to the new risks right in front of us saving the iran nuclear deal has been high on the agenda
2:03 am
for more crones u.s. visit he proposed a new agreement they negotiated with iran that expands on the existing deal white house correspondent kimberly how could reports the president of the french republic . before a joint session of the u.s. congress french president emanuel argue the united states should remain part of the iran nuclear agreement it is true to see 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 oh and it would address tribes concerns beyond twenty
2:04 am
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 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 a 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 on wednesday iran's president question trunks ability to even comprehend the terms of any agreement
2:05 am
show me the car ship 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 or going to tradesmen a merchant someone who builds towers for 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 helped at al-jazeera at the white house ellen fisher joins us live now from washington d.c. alan it's known that these two men have different positions on any number of things . but this seemed to really be an attempt to point out to highlight those differences is it fair to call it a rebuke. well the two of them do have this very good personal chemistry i think
2:06 am
everyone can see that and there's no don't oppose that but this speech in congress was really a manual mccraw and saying to donald trump i don't agree with you not just on a couple of things on a lot of things you'll remember that during the french presidential election campaign donald trump actually supported marine le pen who was one of my early stages opponents and this was mccall essentially saying look this is where i think we differ know the around deal we know about that kimberly explained that but there are other places too where a manual mccraw and donald trump simply don't agree one of the biggest rounds of applause came when among your mccall said he would like to see somebody at the united states getting back into the party palace climate agreement and most of that applause came from democrats and it was significant that when there was slowed applause it was mainly democrats that were doing it there are other issues too when donald trump's a top trumps of talks about isolationism and american farce this is something the
2:07 am
man you're mccraw thinks is a bad idea he said america she continued to be one of the leading voices in the world he says of the door and then other countries and i think he means china and russia are ready to step into that void and he even had a rebuke is probably the right word for some of the rhetoric that donald trump uses seeing that that doesn't do anything to build solutions what it does do is create and insularity and the fear of donald trump tweeted out that he was going to want to monument cross speech on television we think he did we're not entirely sure the white house hasn't confirmed that but if he did he certainly hasn't had any reaction to what emanuel mccraw had to see ok allan thresher high for us in washington thanks allan. it has featured plenty of backslapping handshakes even kisses about how have the french people reacted to this close relationship between their president and on
2:08 am
a trial about reports from paris. it was pomp and ceremony displays of affection and words like camelot the apparent friendship between the french and american presidents was on full show during emmanuel state visit to washington politically the two men 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 perfect 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. . 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
2:09 am
a political tactic mcroy is probably really doing this as 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 the european perspective you might not like the american president but the u.s. will always remain an important partner since micros election he has no cheered his relationship with trump inviting him as france's guest of honor to last year's bastille day celebrations and talking regularly by phone michael says he was able to convince trump to keep u.s. troops in syria some people say that the macros 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 recall seems to her very. well for through diplomatic strategy which is
2:10 am
true create the largest amount of flexibility for france making sure the u.s. is on micro 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 either issue many people in france may feel the tulip backslapping and smiles who was it. al-jazeera paris when they were ahead on the news hour including a show of unity germans rally against anti-semitism after an attack and berlin. and then didn't go through with millions of followers a sentenced to prison life and prison for rape. and sport its advantage around the track after the first leg of their champions league semifinal where i am.
