. facing mounting criticism over his new policy of separating children from their parents who are caught crossing the border illegally president donald trump sought to offer another justification for his so-called zero tolerance policy saturday the president says this policy which aims to criminally prosecute every adult caught crossing the border without authorization is a deterrence for keeping central american gay members out of the united states just weeks ago and illegal as thirteen gang member was arrested for allegedly murdering a man and burning his body the gang member reportedly edgard our country through declaring loopholes for unaccompanied minors the democrats allow those loopholes to be there they could change him so
easily but they don't want to do that for strictly political reasons democrats say the immigration system needs to be fixed but taking children away from their parents is not part of the answer the trump administration separated nearly two thousand children from their parents in the first six weeks of the zero tolerance policy that kids are being held in privately run detention centers like this one in california this is video shot and released by the government reporters were allowed to briefly tour the facility but were banned from taking pictures or speaking with the children muslims worldwide are celebrating the eight holiday at the end of the holy month of ramadan there is little to cheer in syria especially for the many orphans from the seven year war charity workers are giving hope to some as muhammad ali reports. sometimes a meal smile can be the hardest thing to do some of these little faces are exactly

and welcome to the program of a fraud in the last ten years so i'm up didn't prove much in trade between the united states and china but battle of the tariffs is threatening that and there are fears of an all out trade war the us has fifty billion dollars worth of chinese imports the president says he wants a fairer trade with china but beijing's five back with a tit for tat response that's published a list of more than six hundred american products it plans to hit with its own taxes is it a case of who blinks first in this economic brinkmanship we'll talk to our guests in a moment but first flaws louis reports from beijing. tit for tat that's one way to describe the first shot in what's brewing to be a tariff war between the world's two largest economies the us struck first with a twenty five percent tax on certain chinese imports worth fifty billion dollars china's counterpunch and announcement that six hundred fifty nine types of u.s.
goods also worth fifty billion dollars will be subject to tariffs the first round comes into effect on the sixth of july and affects products ranging from soybean to seafood to cause their china feels like it's been the strong it's at the strongest point that it's been in hundreds of years it feels like it's ascendant and so it's not likely to back out some of the terrorists will likely bite chinese consumers the high a tax on soybean imported from the us some of which is used for pig feed could ultimately drive up the price of domestic pork. but the tariffs could also hurt american farmers if china the u.s. is largest buy of soybeans finds substitute sellers elsewhere u.s. president donald trump has been hammering china on trade for months for his protection everybody take care must be appearing in a one hundred fifty one day in the hours are enough for us to get the work that i told you that china if you look at japan in the gulf going to look at something and
we help these countries militarily and yes but what point does it stop the u.s. tariffs target industries tied to china's made in china twenty twenty five a blueprint to dominate high technology industries they're also intended to punish the chinese for what the u.s. calls intellectual property theft and unfair trade practices one trade expert says a u.s. trade battle with china 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 trumps summit in singapore may have strengthened his determination to act for years the u.s. look to china to help restrain north korea. but convinced he has built a relationship with north korean leader kim jong trump perhaps feels he's in a stronger position to be tougher on trade with china the trade war seems to have only just begun trump has threatened to slap taxes on more goods if china goes
ahead with the tariffs chinese state media meanwhile says china has taken note of the statement and reserves its right to take corresponding measures florence three hour jazeera beijing. the well let's have a look at the amount of trade between the u.s. and china last year goods and services were worth a total of seven hundred eleven billion dollars china was the third largest market for u.s. exports and all time high u.s. exports to china were worth one hundred thirty billion dollars while u.s. imports from china exceeded five hundred billion so the difference of the trade deficit was also a record high of three hundred and seventy billion well let's bring in our guests now joining us from london is philip le grain political economist and former special advisor to the director general of the world trade organization and beijing is on the tangan china political analyst who advises the chinese government on
economic and development issues and from birmingham in the united kingdom is scott lucas professor of american politics at the university of birmingham a very warm welcome to all of you mr tang and let me start with you you know president makes so much of this trade deficit had its one of the biggest reasons for imposing these terrorists but is that as simple or even as big as he's making it out to be. well it seems to have a very poor understanding of what deficits are he keeps insisting that he has a deficit with counted when in fact that is not true and in terms of china it is not as simplistic as he things there are over three hundred fifty billion dollars a year that are is being sold and trying to but produced in china by u.s. companies that is also under threat when you start putting it all together what you have is actually a very early even trade balance china has only about ten billion dollars worth of things that it produces in the u.s. and sells in the u.s.
so it's not going to be this one sided idea that he has that he can sort of force doing this this kind of bully playground idea plus remember he is not only at war with china he's at war with the e.u. and and mexico as well as a host of other nations including russia mr crane i know that you've written extensively about this is the trade deficit as black and white as donald trump seize it. well i mean he seems to see a trade deficit as somehow a loss of american inc which it isn't in the main reason and he seems to see it as a sign of that other trade unfairly and that's not necessarily true either i mean the main reason why the u.s. has a trade deficit is because it doesn't save enough and that is something which is own irresponsible fiscal policy is only going to make it worse and in terms of the
trading relationship or one of the reasons why there is such a big trade with the u.s. which big trade deficit with china according to official figures is because there are many parts and components which are assembled into finished products in china and then shipped to the u.s. and therefore the trade is this thinks they count as an entirely chinese export but in the case for example of the i phone which is merely assembled in china the value added actually comes from china is roughly about six percent and that's an extreme example but it tells you actually the deficit is smaller than he says it is more importantly in a bilateral trade deficit with china in and of itself is not a is not a problem mr lucas let me bring you in now the u.s. administration you know also says as well as the trade deficit that the taps are an effort to protect american internet your property that china is stealing is china stealing american intellectual property and if so are these tariffs
a way to address that issue. well i the question about what for probably is a long running issue it predates the trump administration and the question is when china has american companies that operate is it in some white taking information from them learning about practices learning about technology is it doing the same by trying to get into america and by some means getting technology from u.s. companies but there is a proper way for addressing that which is for example through the world trade organization there is a proper way for addressing that indeed in talks with the chinese let's be very clear here the trapping of the stray ssion is only using information. or intellectual property as sort of an excuse this is not a policy driven by that as much as it is by political considerations and by trump's misunderstanding fundamental misunderstanding about how economic trade works and i do want to talk about the political implications that is going to have nationally
for donald trump especially in a year when there's mid-term elections coming up but mr tang and let me come to you now is this i mean they were talks with the chinese government with the trade representatives before donald trump announced that he would go ahead with these tariffs so why didn't why wasn't anything resolved in those talks do you think. well there's a number of theories about that and one of them is that trump is using it's basically sucking all the oxygen out of the air by dropping these media bombs on a weekly basis to keep the press attention away from some of the investigations and ongoing lawsuits that he seems to be embroiled in it is certainly working from the perspective that his approval rating is high the american public likes a president who appears to be doing things that seem very very strong i don't know if they'll feel the same way when farmers and manufacturers start going out of business or losing it remember every time you institute one of these tariffs on
things coming in the u.s. you're just simply raising the cost of doing business and american products become competitive and this is of course going to have an impact missed on a grain u.s. trade representative the said that they hope that this leads to further negotiations and not a rash reaction from china we've already seen the reaction so how likely is more negotiations and not a so-called rash reaction. well i mean this trade war has been on then of and now it's on again the devotions of started a deal seem to have been reached and then trump overruled his treasury secretary these tyrus won't be imposed the first tranche of to the states is a lie and it's quite possible that before then some kind of deal will be reached i mean i think the big problem is that trump is so erratic you know he says one thing
and then the next day says another there's very little incentive for anyone actually to negotiate history with him why make any kind of concession if either a he'll go back on it the next day or be. asking for more very soon so i think that what what's much more likely now is that we're going to see an escalation and you know the chinese have time on their side they can afford to buy their time ultimately trump faces difficult midterm elections later in the year he faces a difficult reelection in twenty twenty the chinese don't face obviously electoral pressure and they can afford to suck up the pressure and just and allow him to wear him self out mr lucas do you think that if these policies have a negative impact on american people if they drive up costs for american consumers manufacturers then could this backfire politically for donald trump do you think.
oh it could but we're talking about the trump administration already donald trump on a tight rope here and that is that the american economy right now as well as much of the global economy is actually doing quite well i disagree a bit with i are in the sense that i don't think it's leading to an overwhelming surge in approval for trump i think it's more that with his base of supporters who are a minority maybe thirty thirty five percent in america it gives them something to shout about we're still doing well we can take on anybody china canada and when but if the economy goes down before november if the terrorists begin to buy before november that of course that advantage erodes i think the gamble here is by trump and his advisors is look we may suffer from the tariffs but if it doesn't occur so for the next six months we're ok because we can ride this into the elections most of the brain how long do tariffs like this take before you see a veil impact. well i mean that that the impact is immediate upis the price goes up
majorly and indeed in cases where the products are freely traded the price reacts basically so you saw that as soon as the chinese and now it's already a while ago that they were thinking about retaliating against american soybean exports the price of american soybeans collapsed so it happens very quickly beyond that obviously economies adjust and so you know countries look for alternative markets to export to an alternative markets to import from and i think part of the calculation behind what the tribes doing in so far as there is any is that some of the chinese exports targeted. the production of them will be relocated about the u.s. i think that's unlikely lots of what's being targeted is low end stuff and if it's
if it does move out of china it's more likely to move to somewhere like vietnam than to come back to the u.s. and mr tang and you know china has no shortage of countries at the moment to both export to all import from the products that it needs. no absolutely i mean china has been building up its belt and road initiative it's been laying down its infrastructure projects are still a little bit immature but they are looking for aussie on to make up the on and the bricks bricks and combine with a belt and road to make up almost two trillion dollars in future trade so they have their eye on the future and they understand that the u.s. and china are going to have continue to have difficulties because it's this perception that they are strategic competitors so i think there are no illusions here but you have to keep in mind we're talking about china now but because this is now become a concert the u.s. has become a rogue state in essence all of its chief trade partners have said that we're going
to impose countervailing duties against you this is not something that's going to go well as soon as you have a chorus of knows it's easier to add your voice voice to that chorus and that's exactly what trump has put in play listen if i could see you agreeing with that mr tang and then when he said that the u.s. has become a state and what you call that. yes i would i think you have to remember that we were talking tariffs against not only against china but against what countries that were american allies canada mexico countries of the you . japan brazil south korea all have been affected and that it's not just the economics here it's that these tariffs of them accompanied by political insults so when you get to the point where donald trump last week is saying that there is or donald trump is advisor saying there's
a special place in hell wizard for canadian prime minister justin trudeau and other foreign leaders you come back to the starting point we began with and that is beyond any economic disputes here if you cannot see the american president as predictable or reliable you enter a zone of instability that we are not used to and the effects are going to go far beyond the immediate america economic ripples so why then you know when the vast majority of economists agree that protectionism doesn't work and there's international consensus around this do we need to wait and see what impact this is going to have politically for the president why then does that not translate to criticism remember domestically all there is there is criticism domestically about i mean among what has he supported raising voices. well because for again for the minority of supporters and my family or among them they'll backtrack come hell or high water until the economic effect bites so it's like yay we're taking on the
world yay make america great again and until you lose your job or you see a rise in prices that all works but there's a second reason here we deficit is not just trump you're talking about certain advisors men like peter navarro steven miller who do not see this in terms of a win win economically they see this as a win lose the united states versus china the united states versus europe the united states versus canada and this new breed of protectionist political as well as economic protectionist even if they think that they're losing some support amongst other americans they simply will say fake news fake media liberals and hope that that base gets them through whatever economic damage the rest of us may suffer and so that some of the domestic politics at play you know putting america against the rest of the world jonathan and go ahead well it's that what they're preaching is this mercan civil ism that was supposedly died but now has been a neo neo ised by these people but whether telling donald trump is that america is
strong today in twenty years america will not be in the same position so the time is now to strike so they're selling this not only the zero sum ideology but they're also saying that this is the only time that the u.s. can reassert itself and prolong its stay at the top now this is all wound into american exceptionalism that the u.s. must be politically militarily and economically hedge amman in the world in order to guide it towards this liberal capitalist. democracy that they believe is the ultimate end of all politics mr mclean you know the u.s. they are in a hair still go ahead innocent going. i mean the irony of course is that you know it was a pasta american presidents who created the monster that for trade with trading system of a saw it as an extension of american power an extension of american
prosperity and normally. when a man's decline they try to extend the period for which they are powerful and it would be in america's interest to try and preserve the system that it's created in its own image and therefore prolong his power and instead of that donald trump has taken it to be a different approach which is to say actually we've been cheated i'm going to blow up the system and in so far as there is a logic to it it's that if we negotiate with countries bilaterally america's top dog will be able to get a bit better bigger and better deal and the fact is that one you need allies the united states would be much more effective in negotiating with china if it did it with with allies and secondly his own negotiating strategy of being so erratic of changing his mind all the time means that nobody actually is going to make the concessions that he's looking for i do want to introduce another negotiating strategy a possible negotiating strategy into all of this mr tang and you know china's
economic might might not be the only bargaining chip here and they have many you know what about north korea because when there was a lot of touring and fro ing about whether the trump kim jong un summit was going to happen and north korea was expressing serious reservations donald trump actually blamed china for that so how much leverage does china still have with north korea and couldn't use north korea in this trade war with the u.s. . i don't think in the way that you're expressing it remember what donald trump came out and said is that he has no intention of the us paying for any of the economic development that north korea is going to demand in return for giving up its nukes he's looking in he is pointed at south korea and japan but the fact is china will have to be part of it i don't know exactly how he's going to achieve that if he keeps punching everybody in the nose this idea that you can push
somebody and then you know they'll back down and give you their lunch money just isn't working and remember this has changed radically the appeal of the of america can you imagine somebody in the developing world sitting there listening to donald trump who heads a nation with five percent of the world's population that consumes a total of twenty five percent of the world's annual consumption telling everybody that oh we've gotten a raw deal we're not getting what we want this kind of turning into a mass of wine or is going to turn not only the countries he's dealing with off but it's going to turn the rest of the world off most of the grain u.s. former special adviser to the director general of the world trade organization whereas the world trade organization and all of this kind of do anything. well obviously both the u.s. and china back in april launched a cases that are riccio the u.s. because of alleged chinese i intellectual property violations and the chinese
against the then proposed u.s. measures and the cases will take their course the fact that the u.s. is now acting unilaterally and the chinese are responding you know actually undermines the dog b.t.o. and the global trading system i think the bigger picture obviously is that. donald trump to stress and to pull out of that obviously oh if the w.h.o. were to rule against his moves he might move i carry out that threat and any case he's been trying to sabotage the dispute settle a mechanism by refusing to approve the. if not in a judge's new appellate court judges to as old ones have left and that means that soon there might not be a quorum and soon therefore the system would break down yet gentlemen we don't have very long left in the show and i'd like to ask a last question to both of our other guests mr lucas and mr tang and mr lucas let
me start with you do you think that these tariffs will go ahead and if so what impact are they going to have i think as your other guests have noted given the other predictability of donald trump you can't take any prediction as being rock solid but given right now the ascendancy of his protections to advisors who have won the battle with the treasury secretary steve i'm a neutral for right now i think we do see at least a first round of sanctions in july but i think if the effects are felt fairly soon that the domestic backlash in the u.s. may make if not trump his advisors back away from this within months and mr tang in just in the last thirty seconds if they do go ahead will china when. well there's no winners in a trade war i mean the question is can china survive it better and i think the earlier comments about the fact that china has control of its economic operettas a lot better they're not subject to the same kind of electoral pressures that it is
and they will be selling this to their their to their constituents and you'll see a sharp downturn in the most number of american goods being bought either way if this thing goes forward so yes i don't think that the u.s. can win this one not against china and the rest of the world combined all right mr tang and thank you very much for that is on a tangan joining us from beijing and thank you to our other guests to finitely grain and london and scott lucas in banning him and thank you too for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting our website c.n.n. dot com and for further discussion do go to our facebook page that's facebook dot com forward slash a.j. and side story you can also join the conversation on twitter to handle this at a.j. inside story from elizabeth pran and the whole team here bye for now.

murder he admitted unique circumstances in fact that point her to the murder confessions are useless without corroboration she thought they are questioning her about her being a victim of a rape not a suspect in a murder case newly false confession involves a completely made up story some will say anything thinking they can fix it later but there's no fixing it later many statements are used against them in the florida law this system was job on al jazeera. i'm richelle carey and han these are the top stories on al-jazeera there an envoy to yemen is in the capital sana for talks to stop fighting over the port city of her data on back with the rebels say they are still in control of the airport and he data dismissing claims by the saudi and emirate amorality that is led military coalition praga good to reports. what did the international airport clearly damaged
but the who these insist still very much in their hands that despite claims by the saudi. military coalition that they're now in control here how come a lot of this is the whole day the international airport today is the second day of . and the claims that they took control of the airport baseless they are just spreading lies and rumors. but if the saudi and every rotten led coalition is did control of the airport its forces aren't far away and they're gaining ground. now the u.n. special envoy to yemen martin griffiths has flown into the yemeni capital sanaa to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe and heard there the port city is a lifeline not only to the who these but to the entire yemeni population we're just a war any fighting in the city of her data we want for peace to be employment that
