2:00 am
this is al jazeera. hello i'm daryn jordan this is the al-jazeera news hour live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes it's actually destructive to our ability to get things done the growing anger among allies against new tariff measures by the united states plus. calls for revenge in gaza the funeral of a young medic shot dead by israeli forces. and council on nationalists regain control of the region posing a headache to spain's new prime minister also. nobody understands what we're
2:01 am
feeling ok because many people there are in their homes their own. six months after hurricane maria hit puerto rico hundreds are still homeless and federal aid is running out. from san juan the united states it has only a few days to avoid a trade war leaving it up to washington to deescalate tensions over tariffs that's after the u.s. imposed new taxes on steel and aluminum imports from the e.u. mexico and canada where the dispute dominated talks between finance ministers from the global economic group known as the g seven in canada but u.s. treasury secretary steven mission is downplaying the dispute. i don't think in any way the u.s. is abandoning its leadership in the global economy quite the contrary i think our leadership on the economy which is one of president trumps major objectives that
2:02 am
national security is not only good for the united states but is good for growth around the world and if anything that additional growth is potentially leading to us even more reason to want to focus on these trade issues well the e.u. canada and mexico are both threatened to impose their own measure in retaliation canada's finance minister says he hopes they'll persuade the trump ministration to back away from the tariffs over the course last couple of days there was an important difference of opinion the americans have decided to in our mind take an action it's not at all constructive it's actually destructive to our ability to get things done what did we ask secretary of treasury secretary to do we said that we were collectively hoping that he would bring the message back the message that message of regret and disappointment at the american actions and concern that they are not constructive and my sense is that he's going to take that message back to
2:03 am
washington about it appears donald trump's planning to hold his ground he's tweeted that it's time for the u.s. to be treated fairly on trade what john hendren joins us live now from washington d.c. john said lots of anger from u.s. allies over these towers what a finance leader has been saying at this meeting. that's right there and you heard those very diplomatic comments but behind those comments the allies are irate and donald trump is not backing down he sent stephen minucci in there his treasury secretary in order to try to assuage those allies that did not work and they didn't work mainly because minucci and couldn't offer them the one thing they really wanted and that is relief from those steel and aluminum tariffs they have already prepared a list of iconic american items that they plan to retaliate with they plan on raising tariffs on levi's jeans jack daniels whiskey harley-davidson motorcycles or and oranges from florida all of those things would be the next step in an
2:04 am
escalating trade war and these are are of course allied nations that normally don't go at each other like this after all when trump raised the terror of on steel he said he was targeting china then he allowed those tariffs to hit the allies that are at this g. seven summit in the coming days that has really angered them they say there needs to be decisive action and they wrote up a statement today that they wanted me nugent to deliver to trump that statement says finance ministers and central bank governors request that the united states secretary of the treasury communicate their unanimous concern and disappointment that's diplomatic language but those are strong words and trunk tweeted right back within hours and he said when you're almost eight hundred billion dollars a year down on trade you cannot lose a trade war the u.s. has been ripped off by other countries for years on trade time to get smart he said so he doesn't show any signs of backing down on those tariffs that might be
2:05 am
a negotiating ploy the u.s. originally tried to get those countries to agree to quotas perhaps in the g. seven summit they'll be able to come to some kind of agreement on that but right now there is tension between countries that are normally allied john and as you say this meetings ahead of that that g seven in canada next week how will the disagreements on tariffs affect that meeting. well with just days to go daryn this looks like it's going to hijack that meeting this was supposed to be the annual meeting in which lately they would be able to celebrate the global economic expansion that's been good for all of those countries and now they're worried about that expansion being drained old because of the trade war that these tariffs could set off so it's likely to be the entire talk of the meeting in that statement i was ever just telling you about earlier from those finance leaders they also said that decisive action needs to be taken in this coming week so they will not probably be
2:06 am
focusing on the other issues that they were planning on talking about that is gender equality climate change and number of other things justin trudeau the host of that meeting is the canadian prime minister was very much looking forward to pressing on a number of issues and instead right now it just looks like it's going to be trade trade trade and like nobody's really going to want to focus on anything else until they get that tariff issue dealt with all right john hendren there in washington john thank you let's bring in william black he's a former federal regulator an associate professor of economics on law at the university of missouri kansas city joins us live from minneapolis william black so finance ministers at this meeting in whistler vented their anger at donald trump's trade tariffs it's quite extraordinary that trump would lead the tire of sun canada for example one of its closest allies in the name of national security yes in more precisely this is an exception under our laws that says that our
2:07 am
national security is jeopardized because of this trade with canada which is the most preposterous argue bed yet of a serious a preposterous argument and president trump seems to be holding his ground he says a trade war is easy to win is that just saber rattling or is he failing to understand the why of a geo political implications here. well first it's ignorance of economics. does not believe what he's being forced to say there's really one economist in the world peter navarro from the university of california irvine where i did my grad studies is the only person that believes that statement that it's easy to to win trade wars everybody else understands because we have long experience with this that everybody loses in a trade war and we've already seen reaction from the european union from canada and
2:08 am
mexico how far away do you think we are from a full blown trade war well first let me add to the report that you just had those are not only iconic u.s. products those are typically products in which the primary producers are in particular red what we call in the united states parlance red states or republican leaning states where they are contestable in the election in other words they are designed to hurt trump in the coming congressional elections and if trump loses control of a majority of the house of representatives and it is predicted that he may well do so particularly with the aid of these very unpopular tariffs in the united states then he is in real danger of impeachment and how is all of this lot events of play out at the g seven next week in canada i mean that surely densa be heated affair or
2:09 am
isn't. well yes but you just heard what he did sounds like. a diplomatic communicate that to normal people sounds like it's perfectly polite so the other folks will be polite trump will be trump and he will be posturing for his base where he wants to come across as tough and he wants to spread this nonsense that if you have a trade deficit you are losing now for those of you that studied economic history this is a mercantile ism this is the type of thing that adam smith drove him crazy so that he wrote in seven hundred seventy six warning about the insanity of this kind of system so we've known better for centuries except in this tiny tiny corner of this one professor that has captured trump's attention with him but just
2:10 am
a final thought officials say these tariffs make it more difficult for the g seven to work together to confront china's trade practices do they have a point yes but again that's the other part of the trade war that is going to discover he trump is going to discover is not easy to win. all of these tariffs are relatively small in dollar amounts compared to what they're going to unleash with regard to china and there is every reason to believe that china is going to retaliate and so there is going to be a much more significant trade war within probably a couple of months and by the way the u.s. has no legal grounds for most of these tariffs we will likely lose when we are challenge to under the world trade organization rules when in block thanks for talking to al-jazeera. well that g seven meeting comes as the u.s. commerce secretary is in china's capital for talks on easing tensions of
2:11 am
a terrace the visit by wilbur ross comes out of the trumpet ministration renewed threats against china raising fears of a trade war washington wants beijing to reduce the trade deficit of nearly three hundred forty billion dollars between the two nations the israeli military says its jets have targeted ten sites belonging to have mass in the gaza strip earlier israel said it intercepted at least one rocket fired from gaza over the city of steroid rocket sirens have been activated in southern israeli areas bordering the gaza strip. but only one saturday thousands of people attended the funeral of a young palestinian paramedic shot dead by israeli forces at the gaza border on friday twenty one year old was on the job been volunteering since the weekly demonstrations began in march and since then israeli soldiers have killed at least one hundred twenty one palestinians protesting for the right to return to their homes sorry force that was at the funeral of han eunice in gaza. the body was on how much is now being brought to once a mosque here i counted as there is
2:12 am
a huge mixture of emotion here we've seen some of her colleagues trying to quiet him so i was brought here as a body comes in way hearing shots of anger and defiance there has been a huge reaction publicly across gaza to the death of this young woman she was shot on the friday protests as she went to the aid of somebody himself he'd been shot near the border fence and she died of her injuries that are listed in medical association saying that she was shot through the chest and she died of her injuries we spoke a short while ago to a colleague who was right next to her when that fatal bullet struck her and she limits of ammonia raising our hands who were in our uniforms were about twenty meters from the fence and they could see us easily so we thought they would shoot at us as we arrived they shot two bullets one had resigned in the chest and the second went through my other colleagues and then hit me in the leg two bullets they
2:13 am
hit three of us killing resign. omissions are running very high here at the cemetery where rosen has been brought to be buried and we've been seeing people trying to stop others from walking on top of graves we've seen a father come in his face entirely awash in tears but we spoke to mahmoud her colleague earlier on he said that she was a young woman of sweet nature someone who never tired of risking your own life to help others the israeli army says it is investigating the reports of her death but as far as people here are concerned they are outraged that someone. he was volunteering as a medic trying to help other others who'd been injured by israeli sniper fire his self so victims are. almost off a bog hutus general secretary of the palestinian national initiative he explained why the killing of on the job has resonated with so many people. shooter presence there very clear and straightforward in justice committed by those that only say she was a very beautiful young. you wanted to help people she
2:14 am
says of first do provide and she wasn't violent to it with us and me because if so . since the beginning of the peaceful marches in gaza she engaged in to help people who were injured she did her best to help as many people as she can although she was injured one slightly she continued to do this work and she was very committed. and on trade there were two clashes as you know and this is the only attack peaceful nonviolent the most looters many of them were shocked by it as they go in to reach them and help them with the issue of the first do the right things and that they were very clear in their white cords who were clearly mythical people who were playing. and she afterwards do you know and injure people and i mean chopper
2:15 am
shot turned in the chest and. then was nor justification whatsoever for not only don't it's not but shoots such a beautiful young girl who was just that i think people who were injured i'm just words that are going to know that it leaves the pain. in my opinion the kissel sort of sound and it is sense now yellow t. of the situation in palestine. a struggle between an oppressed between you or press equal and the pressure between occupied people and then occupying between people who want life and peace and justice and health and those who are going to deprive them from all. israeli soldiers have also shot dead a palestinian man in the city of hebron in the occupied west bank israeli forces say troops fired a thirty five year old when he tried to run them over with his car. lots more still to come here on the news hour including fears yemen will lose a vital lifeline as pro-government forces advance on the rebel held border the data plus. outrage turns to unrest in the indian administered kashmir

welcome back to a look at the americas this time we have a very active cold front stretching always down across canada and through into the mid atlantic region of the united states is active all the way down so some severe storms particular across more northern areas and see the change in wind direction the southerly ahead of it the northerly behind it and the frontal system itself will head towards the eastern seaboard as we head on through into monday and you see a big drop in temperatures for new york highs of just fifteen degrees or quite a change there compare with recent days largely fine across the florida peninsula maxima thirty one in miami and it should be fine across much of the west coast with eighteen the high in san francisco down into central parts of america we still have this massive cloud extending all the way from the isthmus through towards our western parts of cuba on the bahamas still a chance of a few showers here but generally weather conditions improving many of the islands further towards the east are looking draw and fine but really all that through panama costa rican the cure i go i'm pretty quatermain it is going to be pretty wet
2:28 am
so over the next twenty four to forty eight hours so let's head down into south america lots of showers across northern areas all the way from venezuela across towards parts of ecuador and southward through peru and down into bolivia and the could be a few heavy showers affecting the pass. the worlds pollinate says are in decline. in this episode of trying we meet entomologists on opposite sides of the planet protecting insects of all sizes crucial to preserving food chains. i've come to the u.k. to see how old industrial sites are being turned into bug reserves in an attempt to reverse this worrying trend. fighting insect to get on on al-jazeera. new possibilities treeless journalists or medical facility if they got that either

way he declared a state of emergency several weeks ago gripping documentaries to discover a wealth of award winning programming from around the globe. debates and discussion on one side of the split screen dignitaries mingling on the other card see the world from a different perspective only on al-jazeera. welcome back a quick reminder of the top stories here on al-jazeera from source one the united states it has only a few days to avoid a trade war leaving it up to washington to deescalate tensions of the terrace the disputes dominated talks between g seven finance ministers in canada but the
2:30 am
remaining six member sent a message of concern and disappointment to the u.s. president. thousands of people in gaza have attended the funeral of twenty one year old palestinian medical us on the job who was shot dead by israeli forces at the gaza border she'd been volunteering since the weekend demonstrations began in march . and spain's new socialist prime minister petro sanchez has been sworn in a day off to ousting conservative money out of the hallway in a vote of confidence he's already facing his first big challenge with a new regional government of catalonia also being sworn in and pledging to fight for independence. now nations in the asia pacific have given a cautious welcome to u.s. president donald trump's decision to finally go ahead with his summit with the north korean leader kim jong il and japan and south korea are divided over the future of pyongyang's ballistic missile program that division was on display at an international security conference in singapore scott hide the reports. the focus of
2:31 am
the high level discussions here at the shangri-la dialogue all came down to one peninsula u.s. secretary of defense jim mattis just hours after president donald trump confirmed the u.s. north korea summit was back on june twelfth here in singapore and made something on very clear open the number of u.s. troops in south korea is something that will not be discussed if we can restrict or confidence building measures with with something verifiable then of course these kinds of issues can come up subsequently between democracies the republic of korea and the united states but it is that issue is not on the table here in singapore on the twelfth. that adds weight to comments from trump that it's unlikely that a major breakthrough will come after just one meeting also here the shangri-la dialogue the defense ministers from japan and south korea both spoke about the upcoming summit but with guarded optimism saying it's a historic first step down the right path but north korea cannot be rewarded just
2:32 am
for dialogue concrete actions are needed south korea was more conciliatory toward kim jong un urging patience with the north koreans. punning well because just because we have been tricked by north korea before does not guarantee that we will be tricked in the future if we start to think like this we can never negotiate with them and we can never look to achieve peace with them and also on saturday secretary mattis described china's buildup in the south china sea as militarization used for intimidation and coercion and i think mr mattis was doing that simply to remind everybody that the geopolitical chessboard straddled across the asia pacific is extremely large and a lot of moving parts and the current korean peninsula crisis is just one portion of that chessboard clearly a red line or several red lines have been crossed and the u.s. is now hitting back at these diplomatic to china defended its actually saying what the u.s. and their allies are doing is simply being matched for now the countdown to the
2:33 am
much anticipated summit in ten days remains in the spotlight it's got harder al-jazeera singapore away has more now on the south korean reaction from seoul. there was a positive response from the south korean government to the news that the summit between donald trump and kim jong un appears to be back on track for june the twelfth in singapore there was a very brief statement released by the office of the south korean prisoners mungy in referring to the letter that was written by kim jong un and sent to donald trump the statement said it is made the path leading to a u.s. north korea summit wider in studio and we will watch for the historic meeting to be held in singapore in an excited yet met a man or so perhaps cautious optimism optimism is the best way to describe the response from the south korean government to that news that the summit appears to be or go for june the twelfth but it looks also increasingly unlikely that will we
2:34 am
will see any significant deals or any major announcements made during that summit there may be some general agreements reached between donald trump and kim jong un there was some perhaps misguided optimism that they would be a deal reached related to perhaps the denuclearization of the korean peninsula which seems to be the ultimate goal or a peace deal to formally end the korean war but of course those two issues are very complex and it seems that there just isn't enough time to come up with some sort of deal before or during that summit when it comes to the denuclearization of the korean peninsula it also seems that the two sides north korea and the united states are still out wide apart when it comes to how best to achieve that goal puerto rico's health departments being sued over its refusal to release data on the number of people who died following last year's hurricane maria the families of those killed have held
2:35 am
a vigil to highlight the discrepancy between the government's official toll of sixty four and the latest estimate from a study by harvard university which puts the number at more than four thousand six hundred the government's being accused of a lack of transparency. well tens of thousands of puerto ricans fled to florida after the island was devastated by hurricane maria but eight months on the hundreds of evacuees are still living in hotels relying on government aid that will soon end under gallagher reports from florida in the weeks following hurricane maria more than thirty thousand storm weary puerto ricans registered at this disaster relief center orlando's airport u.s. citizens by birth they came to florida looking for help months later many are still in limbo like hundreds of others namely gonzales has been stuck in a hotel since january but time is running out for drill assistance programs a temporary and naomi has nowhere else to go nobody understands what we're feeling ok because. many people they're in their homes they're all kids they could lead
2:36 am
they've got their place but when you don't have a place well it gets to you it's really tough for families that have already been in these hotels for months there's the constant fear that government aid will end and that is inevitable many simply don't have anything to go back to in puerto rico but for those that want to make a life here there's an even bigger problem ninety seven percent of all rental accommodation is already filled that the remains is prohibitively expensive we're getting calls from people who care about others orange county's commissioner says resources stretched and many evacuees who have little choice but to stay face an uncertain future when you lose everything and you can't pay your mortgage and now your credits getting ruined and now you're here in our county trying to find an apartment they're looking at your credit score is and you can't get approved that's just a domino effect from something that happened to them six months ago so what if you
2:37 am
can only request welcome to. the community hope centering kissimmee is helping some families find homes say they too can't help everyone resources in this part of florida already dealing with an exodus of puerto ricans who left before the storm the limited as they come in the expectations for the families i feel may be higher than what we actually can provide at times i know that there's there's huge frustration and i know that there is just there's hurt and trauma hurricane maria hit puerto rico last september but the island is still struggling those that came to florida were looking for a new start many are still waiting and you got to crawl jazeera kissimmee florida. there's been another day of violence and nicaragua where protesters are accusing the government of repression the red cross says at least two people manning local barricades were shot dead in the capital managua weeks on rest between security forces pro-government militias and protesters have led to the. formation of
2:38 am
neighborhood watch groups the un has called on the government to end the violence which has killed more than one hundred thousand people since mid april. now italy is new so-called government of change has officially taken over following three months of political turmoil in the country the coalition of the anti establishment five star movement on the anti immigration league party was sworn in on friday. reports from rome the union of the two parties is one born out of necessity. a bride arrives for how waiting at a church in central rome a ceremony marking the beginning of a new life ahead as to the married. elsewhere in the city there is another partnership being celebrated a political one brought about by a coalition between italy's anti establishment parties headed by the five star movement commemorating their place at the head of
2:39 am
a new government and we're not the very different in anything obvious that there are but here in common for those bar that are not in common and we have created this agreement. every day both of us know that if one is doing the opposite the other one can make the government fall the irony is not lost on the party faithful it is in one sense a marriage of convenience between two anti establishment rivals that want to revolutionize the political landscape especially where the e.u. is concerned even if it means compromise there are high hopes but for some the decision by five star to enter into a coalition with the far right is being seen as a betrayal of the cause there's little common ground between the true question is whether they can stick it out for better or worse and even the promise of a new beginning has left some who have supported five star i'm convinced you see by your side. you're going to mix a cup with
2:40 am
a dog and expect that everything was fine i hope you go the spine of course i all but is it possible we'll see. and for supporters of the leg up party they know that hard work lies ahead finding common ground but they think that it can be done and. it's a challenge which can be overcome i trust the leader of our party and if he says that there are competent people in the ministries then i believe him. back at the church the bride and groom make their vows richer for poorer but as in love and in politics there are no guarantees as to what lies ahead so i go rome a right wing aggression party is leading the polls in slovenia ahead of sunday's parliamentary election half a million migrants pass through severe on their way to western europe in twenty fifteen and that thrust immigration into the spotlight in a country with a population of just two million in the hayward reports. it will be the third time
2:41 am
in just seven years slovenians head to the polls there a new faces but it's the young it's young who leads the slovenian democratic party who's the familiar one here almost prime minister who had to resign over corruption scandal five years ago it's not his past people are focusing on but his hardline rhetoric on immigration and his ties to hungary's nationalist leader viktor orban. half a million people fleeing war and poverty passed through slovenia in twenty fifteen on their way to western europe since then migration has been pushed up the electoral agenda so to the young told the rally last week's lavinia is defending the schengen border of europe. it's an easy stance to take if you say to the people immigration is the main issue and that's why your countries and prospering and if you vote for me i can help fix that something that anyone can say it's worked to an
2:42 am
