everybody take care of the european union made one hundred fifty one billion dollars you know with the if you will get that told you that you would get your little bit of glory to look at something that would help these countries militarily in the future but what point does it stop so now the u.s. will impose tariffs on additional tax on goods imported from china the industries to be impacted agriculture automotive and the tech sector. the white house says it's not targeting foreigners t.v.'s and computers for no that would mean higher charges higher costs for consumers one trait expert says a u.s. trade battle with china the world's two biggest economies will impact global markets it creates instability uncertainty reduces particularly investor uncertainty for long term investors private business capital expenses and these types of things. some in singapore may have strengthened his determination to act
for years the u.s. look to china to help bring in an industry north korea but convinced he's built up a solid relationship with kim jong un the president perhaps feels he's in a stronger position to act on trade. the industry is targeted or those tied to china is made in china twenty twenty five strategic plan to dominate the emerging high technology industries drive future economic growth but hunt for us and others china has warned when the first set of targets hit on july the sixth it will respond that will spark a second round of titus from the us to move on the lead on china is consistent in its stance that if the us adopts any unilateral protectionist measures and damages china's interests we will immediately react and take necessary measures to firmly safeguard our legitimate rights and interests there are those in this town and those in this white house who privately believe that a long term trade war with china would be bad for the u.s. economy and for u.s.
consumers but donald trump is the living on a campaign promise and he believes a trade war would be good for the u.s. and it's a war he can when alan fischer al-jazeera at the white house. a u.s. charge has revoke bail for donald transform a campaign manager paul man of fort he will remain in custody until he faces trial in september on a raft of charges including money laundering patty culhane has this update from outside the court in washington. it was dramatic in court the judge really went after paul man a for us president former campaign manager said that he was treating this is if it was a marketing campaign not a criminal trial and she said that he is going to spend the next few months in jail until he comes back here to face trial in september this is all because the prosecution came out and said well he was allowed to stay at home under home arrest waiting for trial that he tried to tamper with the evidence from two witnesses over five weeks sending text messages encrypted apps phone calls the judge said he
cannot be trusted this is potentially hugely significant you have to keep in mind paul manna for made ever made it clear he was going to fight these charges this is a man who has spent decades living the most luxurious life now he's going to be in a jail cell facing handcuffs of prison food and jumpsuit this is going to give him much more of an incentive to try possibly work out a deal so that he cooperate with the special prosecutor because he was already facing the very possibility that he could spend the rest of his life in prison he's now about to find out exactly what that feels like. the leaders of france and italy have met in paris to end the diplomatic row over how to handle europe's migration crisis the french president emmanuel criticized the italian government for refusing to accept a rescue ship carrying more than six hundred migrants from libya but macros
criticism sparks a war of words with the italian leadership is accused paris of hypocrisy baba reports from paris. a week off to sit hundreds of refugees and migrants are still at sea on their way to the spanish ports of the. river from. six die on pooled in the same since they pulled the rope in libya. their ordeal should soon be over but when italy turned away the charity boat that rescued them the aquarius the route that erupted almost led to emmanuel mccullough is meeting with a new italian prime minister his epic contest being cancelled after mutual accusations of not doing enough a phone call from president michael saved the day now they're promising to work hand in hand to find solutions. if you don't get local use in the case of the aquarius the risks start when the boat leaves libya this is at the heart of the initiative we want to take with our colleagues preventing the man and woman
boarding ships and making dangerous journeys before being rescued by n.g.o.s the risk starts right from the beginning not just when the boat arrives in european waters we must have an organization with countries of transit to avoid humanitarian situations that are unbearable. we have always said and would like to reiterate today the dublin rules have to change italy is firmly opposed to the current reforms to the dublin system and we are currently preparing our own proposals which we will share with our french friends and other european partners to develop them at the european level under the austrian presidency of the council and it's those rules which leaders will be reexamining at the european union summit in two weeks' time the dublin regulation imposed that the first can three done well comes out that receives migrants and that's ireland seekers is in charge of processing at that claim which brought an enormous burden on countries like italy spain mouth our hand carried out is countries on the nod and share our of the media there and see
these two leaders were never going to get rid of all of the tensions that have built up between france and italy over the issue of migration but what we've heard from them does remind the whole continent that the solution to the problem lies only europe wide basis the number of people arriving in italy by sea has dropped this year but with attitudes hardening in many countries those who do make it to europe may find they're even less welcome al-jazeera paris. well in a sign of just how divided europe is over the migration issue angela merkel is also scrambling to save her government after part of her ruling coalition threatened to walk away the conservative christian social union the bavarian sister party to knuckles christian democrats is demanding tighter checks on migrants at the border dominic cain explains. these are difficult days for angela merkel a coalition government is at a crossroads brought there by
a rout over immigration with her interior minister horst zero offer he's one of her strongest allies on the center right with his very own based christian social union c.s.u. the sister party to her c. d. he wants her to change course she does not suppose anything to be known throughout i personally think illegal immigration is one of the big challenges for the european union so i don't believe we should act unilaterally we should not act in an uncoordinated way and we should not act at the expense of third parties but the c.s.u. and zeal for disagree vehemently they want to abandon the scheme in place since merkel open the borders in twenty fifteen allowing in more than a million refugees instead they say germany must be prepared to act unilaterally to control its borders independent of you commit it's interior ministers a whole for his even threatened to put border controls back into place next week a move that would leave his position in miracles cabinet untenable believe me for.
i do not wish to hide from you that we're in a very serious situation there's been talk of a historic situation our colleagues from the c.s.u. have unanimously expressed their one hundred percent support horsy hope for the must apply and the rejection of migrants at our borders. the problem for merkel is that without the c.s. hughes votes in parliament she would lose her majority as a string for the three goals accorded through all british. so it's possible that the coalition falls apart because the c.s.u. part of it is really in an ideological conflict with the non nationalist and non nationalist orientated chancellor that means that the populist right that the c.s.u. has become and merkel's centrist approach do not fit together i'm going to merkel believes it's only at the europe wide level that a comprehensive solution can be found she's pinning her hopes on the coming in new
summit in brussels but critics on the right say a glance around europe's capitals suggests that many governments don't share her views and all the while this row with the c.s.u. remains unresolved dominant cain al-jazeera well and the afghan president says the head of the pakistani taliban has been killed by a us drone strike. was responsible for a number of high profile attacks including the shooting of schoolgirl malala yousafzai in two thousand and twelve jennifer grass reports. first lou was at the top of pakistan's most wanted list the leader of the pakistani taliban he planned attacks including one of the school in the shower in two thousand and fourteen they killed one hundred fifty one people many of them children. two years earlier he ordered the murder of schoolgirl malala yousafzai she was shot in the head on a school bus by taliban fighters but survived and was later awarded the nobel peace

a u.s. airstrike could open the door for stronger cooperation between pakistan afghanistan and the united states the u.s. wants to get pakistan on board taking out pakistan's or salma bin laden really is quite quite a strong incentive for marcus to not to cooperate with his death will mean for the pakistani taliban is unclear the pakistani taliban is separate from the afghan taliban it's active here and these fighters are in a cease fire with the government for the three days of the ied holiday the afghan president hopes it will last longer jennifer glassed al jazeera called it out as they are live from london still ahead on the program south africa's muslim community rails from a stabbing attack at a mosque that left two men dead and reports from malaysia suggest the former prime minister najib razak could face charges over a corruption scandal. how
