a list of affected items on the fifteenth of june and the tariffs are expected to come into effect a couple of days after that now the two countries u.s. and china have been holding talks to try and avert a possible trade war ultimately the u.s. wants to reduce its trade deficit with china by as much as two hundred billion dollars over the next two years and the trumpet ministration has also said it wants to give american companies greater access to the chinese market trying to believes tariffs it's one way of forcing china's hand and china has said if the u.s. goes ahead with these tyrants then all trait discussions between the two countries over the past two weeks will announce these boys china had promised to increase its purchases of u.s. energy and farm products much as seventy billion dollars and now it appears that they will no longer want to commit to that if the trumpet ministration goes ahead with these tariffs and the terrorists will also likely complicate the relationship between the two countries at a time when the u.s. needs china's help in enforcing tougher u.n.
sanctions on north korea and the trumpet ministration believes it was d's tougher u.n. sanctions that forced north korea to the negotiating table and allowed the summit in singapore to take place but some analysts also believe that because the talks between the u.s. and north korea were a success that this now gives the u.s. a lot more leeway to be tough on trade with china because ultimately china will not want to derail the process as denuclearization on the korean peninsula is consistent with china's security interests. and european union member countries of unanimously back to plan to impose retaliatory tyrus on u.s. products the move will told it goods worth more than three billion dollars and there in response to the latest round of us to. on steel and aluminum imports from the e.u. canada and mexico the measures are expected to come into effect within the next few

ministration announced that it would be dispersing six point six million dollars to the syrian white helmets those are the volunteers who have been trying to provide emergency medical care to the people caught in the cross-fire of the little seven year old syrian civil war this money is going to be just first legally to accounts that the white helmets can access so that they can buy emergency medical equipment and supplies however this is a far cry from the two hundred million dollars which the u.s. had pledged to provide to emergency relief groups earlier this year just before he was fired as secretary of state rex tillerson made the two hundred million dollar pledge any funding conference for the syrian people however the trumpet ministration shortly thereafter said that as part of its strategy to not be as
involved in syria as it has been in the past that it was going to freeze that two hundred million dollars pledge the six point six million announced on thursday is less than three percent of that figure on thursday as it happens the u.n. special envoy for syria stefan dema stora indicated that he would soon be meeting with officials from a number of countries including the us in order to talk about the way to try to resolve the civil war through peace talks he did not however talk about the emergency funding going to the white helmets but one point that demo store did make to reporters in geneva on thursday is that he's not optimistic that a peaceful solution can be found quickly but that he said that after four years of being in the job he feels a compulsion to try to make peace possible for the syrian people. the new york attorney general has issued a notice of suing against president donald trump and three of his children and
their charitable foundation for allegedly violating state charity law and the two point eight million dollar lawsuit alleges the trump foundation engaged in unlawful cooled a nation with chumps twenty sixteen presidential campaign gabriel elizondo has more from new york. the new york attorney general accuses the trump foundation of persistent illegal conduct and it relates to the donald trump foundation which was started in one thousand nine hundred seven by donald trump and it's a charitable organization that's tax exempt because of that there are certain laws that it has to abide by and one of those key laws is that none of the money that goes to the charitable organization can be used by any personal means in any way shape or form however the new york attorney general said that is exactly what the donald trump foundation did and they said that they used money from the foundation to among other things pay off trump legal bills also to decorate one of his golf
course properties and also they say to use some money that went to his presidential campaign and they point to an event in two thousand and sixteen it was a trump event in iowa where it was billed as a fundraiser for military veterans they raised about six million dollars at that event the new york attorney general says only about three million of that went to the charitable cause the other three million was diverted away and used by the trump campaign and that according to the new york attorney general is highly illegal now why are trump's three oldest children also named in this and that's because all of them served on the trump foundation board of directors now the attorney general is asking that the trump foundation be dissolved the trump pay back about two point eight million dollars and restitution and that trump can no longer open
a charitable organization or foundation for at least another ten years important to point out that this is a civil lawsuit not criminal so the worst that could happen to trump and his children is that they would have to pay restitution there's nothing beyond that now donald trump himself tweeted out a response to this he calls the accusations completely ridiculous and he says that he will fight this case indicating that he will take this to court also insinuating his tweets that this is nothing more than politically motivated. the united nations is warning that a key target on climate change set in the paris agreement will not be met unless a rapid and far reaching changes are made in the world economy a report by the into government intergovernmental panel on climate change says human induced global warming will increase by more than one point five degrees celsius by the year twenty forty now the final version of the report is due for
publication in october tim cross and is the director of plan b. that's a charity which supports ease of legal action to tackle climate change and he says governments must take the lead because it's too big a problem for individuals one point five degrees mind to sound like a number to a lot of people to call in paris when governments agreed to limit temperature to that level was one point five to stay alive and that is the call that really sums this out this is an existential threat it is an extension threat to all of us to our societies to our economies to international security if that isn't enough to wake people up it's very difficult to know what is is too much for individuals to handle on their own as a complete fantasy that this is going to be solved by people changing their habits of consumption this needs to happen at scale our infrastructure needs to change is has to happen with support from government but all over the world to mandating that
we do whatever it takes because we face an existential crisis we face an emergency donald trump is obviously a huge disappointment in terms of what the world is trying to do but there are many many americans that he doesn't speak for we've got the mare of new york at the moment suing fossil fuel companies for the costs of putting a wall around wall street to keep the floodwaters a day we just got to find a coalition of the willing. the muslims around the world are celebrating eve to mark the end of the holy month of ramadan all of whom all in indonesia and many gathered in most across the country for prayers every year muslims of the month of ramadan by fasting from dawn to dusk and in egypt millions of muslims are celebrating need as well as the country's first appearance in the world cup since one nine hundred ninety many who gathered in the capitals main square for prayers or the national team colors to mark the occasion. that
