9:07 am
were were bussed here senior figures tell us that it's vitally important as far as they're concerned that what they say is their new tactic of peaceful protest remains in place and they will continue to do this they say until there is something tangible to show for it so far that remains elusive things remain very tense here especially this week after what we saw just a few days ago with around of some forty five rockets and mortars fired out of gaza territory into israel and the response from the israeli air force with some twenty five hamas linked targets struck there is a sense of tension here as these protests continue now well into the third month. top u.s. advisers on the middle east have met the israeli prime minister the u.s. embassy in jerusalem the visit is part of a tour of the region to push president of trans middle east peace plan palestinian leaders have halted all communication with the u.s. since december and it's unlikely they'll meet trump's son in law and senior adviser

jared cushion as well as u.s. middle east special envoy jason green blatt palestinians are outraged at trump's decision to leave the u.s. embassy to jerusalem and one car has more from west jerusalem. special advisor and special envoy jason green lots of concluded their meetings here in israel they met at the prime minister's office it's been part of a whistle stop tour of the middle east which is seen them go to their arab allies saudi arabia jordan cats and egypt to talk about what's likely to be a perceived or proposed rather peace plan for the israelis and the palestinians now we say likely no details been given as to what this peace plan might include other than donald trump saying it's the deal of the century and that's what they've been working on the reason for these meetings with arab allies is to likely trying to persuade the arab allies to buy into this peace plan and then present it to the
9:09 am
israelis who also the u.s. wants to get a buy in from as well and then presenting it to the world but what's missing from all of this is the palestinians and palestinians say that the u.s. isn't an honest broker anymore that it's on the side of the israelis because it recognizes jerusalem as the capital of israel so the palestinians on involved in any way shape or form with this peace plan so what does that mean well it means the likelihood of the peace plan going through is quite slim considering the palestinians aren't involved but let's see what happens when they try and present the u.s. try to present the peace plan to the world what sort of reaction they'll get and this is really what we're hearing is this being discussed when is the right time to reveal this so-called deal of the century this proposed peace plan for israel and palestine now the united states has indefinitely suspended several military training exercises with south korea you know it's meant comes just weeks after u.s.

9:14 am
goes against it in fact it goes against the logic that the e.u. says is also identified another four billion dollars in u.s. products for further tariffs if the world trade organization court where it's lodged a complaint against the us rules in the e.u. favor the european union is pitifully steering clear of the expression trade war largely over fears about where these tit for tat measures could end up instead the e.u. is referring to it as a rebalancing measure still this is about making as much noise as possible about sending a symbolic message to the white house by targeting some of america's most iconic brands. donald trump said he's now considering introducing twenty percent tariffs on european cars but analysts say any further measures against the e.u. could harm the u.s. produces in the long run. times is smart enough not to go too far he knows very

that some members all relatives of the windrush generation have been threatened with deportation refused health care and lost their jobs because they couldn't prove their legal status in part because immigration rules have changed junior green a riped in britain as a baby he was caught up in the scandal and missed his own mother's spirit because he was stopped from boarding a plane back to the u.k. after visiting jamaica for the first time in years of the trade. and they took something from me that can be a kind of get back the government apologized to the scandal and there's an out celebrations to mount the interest will take place every year for some though it is long. there is a disconnect between what is going on in blackstock african african caribbean communities and what is going on in the mainstream white society which is let's say politically dominated where we have been overlooked but that doesn't mean we
9:18 am
ourselves don't celebrate and commemorate our contributions because we are the ones who keep this stuff for life for many the greatest legacy of the windrush generation will be when the contribution of own communities in britain is fully recognized and the heywood al-jazeera. you're watching al-jazeera homes the whole robin these are all top news stories there's growing concern over whether u.s. authorities have the proper records to reunite many of the migrant children separated from their parents at the u.s. mexican border in recent weeks president trump however stands firm on his no tolerance immigration policy only a news conference with victims of crimes committed by mike rounds. these are the stories that democrats and people that are weak on immigration they don't want to
9:19 am
discuss they don't want to hear they don't want to see they don't want to talk about no major networks and cameras to their homes or display the images of their incredible loved ones across the nightly news they don't do that they don't talk about the death and destruction caused by people that shouldn't be here . hundreds of civilians in yemen are fleeing the port of data u.s. officials are urging the saudi led coalition to halt its bombing campaign on the strategically important site now they're calling on the coalition to allow the u.n. to manage the port instead according to the reuters news agency yemen's who the rebels say that they may be willing to accept the deal. the united nations report says the rule of law in venezuela is now virtually absent with the government linked to more than five hundred killings over two year period the report says extra judicial killings are being carried out with impunity the un human rights

9:22 am
a looming trade war on friday the european union impose three point surgery billion dollars worth of tiris on u.s. goods now it's a direct response to recently impose u.s. tariffs on imported steel and. european leaders try to change president trump's mind about tyrus during the recent g. seven summit in canada that meeting your remember didn't go down well it'll them with a new round of e.u. levies now taking hold relations seem destined to become even more tense we'll get to our guests in just a moment but first neve baka sets up a discussion from london. the e.u. has described the decision to slap tariffs on almost three billion dollars worth of u.s. imports as a rebalancing measure falling short of in any way referring to this as a trade war however this is all about making as much noise as possible about sending a symbolic message to the white house in response to donald trump's decision last month to slap tariffs on imports of alum
9:23 am
a new and steel here into the european union that probably explains some of the brands that have been chosen to have these tariffs like to pull them including the american jeans for levi suspect flagship store regent street in central london also harley davidson motorcycles florida orange juice cranberries been from kentucky and some u.s. metal imports as well donald trump has already suggested that european car manufacturers could be targeted with more terrorists and the e.u. has also suggested that it may have some ideas in reserve suggesting that it's earmarked around three point six billion dollars worth of. u.s. products to slap tariffs on in the near future that's if the world trade organization trade court rules in favor of the european union's latest complaint against the united states the e.u. all in all the has made it very clear that it's going to do what is necessary to
9:24 am
protect its consumers and its produces but before it gets any more complicated before things develop any further potentially into dangerous territory what the e.u. really wants is to bring the united states possibly in the company of china to the negotiating table right now though nobody seems to be talking. well as need highlighted there the new e.u. terrace a carefully timed hit on states that support president trump and the republicans there's kentucky for instance where the famous babbin whiskey is produced it's all say the home state of senate majority. leader mitch mcconnell harley davidson motorcycles and artist and cheese both of them produced in wisconsin the home state of republican house speaker paul ryan and orange juice one of the most important crops in florida a swing state is republican governor rick scott is in a tight race for a senate seat. right
9:25 am
let's introduce our guest now in new jersey we have seen raj is a member of the donald j. trump for president advisory board in kuala lumpur we have deborah is executive director at asian trade center and in london we have sam low international trade expert at the center for european reform welcome to you all very much stephen can i start with you in new jersey the e.u. commission president john called. says jute is imposed only e.u. by the u.s. president go against all logic and history what is president trump hoping to achieve let's put this in perspective none of the actions that president trucker's take is punitive in nature what the president wants to do is make sure that everyone is on the same playing field tariffs against united states have been out of control they've been unfair and interesting the president really never blamed
9:26 am
the leaders of the e.u. for this he has blamed ask us administrations for making deals and i'm kind of sorry can i just get a little bit more clarity on that because as i understand it generally speaking european union tyrus are around the three percent mark and u.s. tariffs are around the two point three percent mark so what would president trump like to see would he like to see both sets of tyrus come down would he like to see them removed completely is he for free trade. well yes it is for free trade and i believe you want to see them come down but come down and and you mentioned or you report and mention something you're trysting at the end of their monologue at the end of the day everyone is going to come to the negotiating agreement look president trump is famous for being the great negotiator the art of the deal is what he counts on and at the end of the day everyone is going to sit at
9:27 am
a table and i believe that the tariffs are going to come down quite significantly let's go to sam then sam in london the e.u. seems to have been quite measured in terms of its response with these terrorists targeted specifically at key states particularly of course in midterm election year two in november a better designed and have maximum political effect rather than economic yes i think that's correct i think the important thing to understand about terrorists is that it actually your punishing your own consumers when you levy them so so that you use response as being strategic it's been political and it's been designed to cause as little damage domestically as possible and i think i think it's legitimate you can't just have a president marching around the world making demands of other countries under threat of future tariff increases and i think it's time that
9:28 am
someone stood up to him and i think the e.u. is one of the few economic powers that can do so effectively and sam the e.u. is retaining obviously a lot more power up its sleeve as it were i mean if indeed come come the beginning of july when we expect the impact of these terrorists to to take effect if come that particular moment in time do you think that the e.u. would go still further and unveil a new tranche of of terrorists. i think it's been an ongoing debate in the european union not as to whether the e.u. should retaliate to trump i think that's that that's fairly fairly well agreed but between the french and the germans the discussion has been how seriously should we retaliate with the french backing quite a fierce retaliation the germans being slightly more measured however the german sentiment is shifting because up until now they hoped that this could be resolved
9:29 am
through dialogue and that it wouldn't escalate further on to the one product the germans are really worried about cars that because donald trump seems to be going ahead with his national security investigation into car imports now and is threatening future tariff rises on cars i think the germans are starting to come around to the idea that maybe this is a man that can't be reasoned with and only respects displays of force and deborah kal how does it look from there because of course we've got the u.s. china sanctions dispute which is many people are already calling an all out trade war how does it look from where you are. well i think the challenge and i apologize in advance for my voice we've had too many trade disputes and too many speeches about trade. i think the challenge here in asia in particular is that we are all very tightly connected through supply chains and so what appears to be fairly targeted responses to different kinds of measures often has fall off into other
9:30 am
unrelated sectors into firms that didn't even know they were part of a supply chain and so as these measures and counter-measures in different sectors starting with washing machines and solar panels escalating to steel tariffs and aluminum tariffs to counter measures in agriculture and other products fishing boats and so forth and now with the fifty billion dollars worth of tariffs on three a one disputes between the u.s. and china coming very quickly where discovering just how interlinked firms are all around the world but especially here in asia into supply chains that we didn't even know existed and i think while you can say these are political acts you can't forget that there are real world implications for the firms that are affected by them many of these firms could potentially go bankrupt people can lose their jobs even if the tariffs are relatively short in nature even if the the the pain appears
9:31 am
to be somewhat manageable there are consequences to these these kinds of things which is why we try not to have these kinds of tariff escalation in the first place and stephen coming back to you these perhaps unintended consequences of this tower if wall that has now been unleashed could impact upon u.s. consumers themselves and as i mentioned already this is a highly sensitive time for president trump isn't it given that you go to the polls in november and there is battle for control of the senate and indeed the house of representatives at stake. well let's talk about that the political implications the e.u. is making a grave mistake argument about the american people especially in those republican districts that you mentioned earlier president trump is very very popular despite what the mainstream media here are saying the economy is growing and getting stronger every month so that at the end of the day he has promised he would look
9:32 am
out for the interest of the american people first and that's the way they're seeing this now and i think that person right that we're finding out that there is a lot of interconnection worldwide and that's why i said earlier as we begin to make these discoveries it's all part of our interconnected economically we're going to all have to go to the table and sit down and have a conversation about this but the president has made it clear that it's got to be fair above and beyond anything else fair for the american people so sad in london this says stephen is suggesting that this could all be sorted out fairly amicably at a sit down around the table how likely is that and if so when i think i think it's already been proved to comment be sorted out i mean clearly round the table and i think i think other countries have a point when they say they don't want to negotiate with a gun to their head and i'm just to go back to one of the points made earlier about we're finding out about all of this interconnection i think there's actually an
9:33 am
argument to be made that trump or at least his team a weaponize ing uncertainty in the hope that all of the different you know that one day terrorists are going up one day they're going down we don't know what's happening in the hope that american business has actually repatriate supply chains from around the world to within the u.s. and this is this is a theory that been put forward by meredith crowley of cambridge university and i think and i think there's something in it but this i do hope that this can be resolved ultimately discussion about the moment i don't think anything about trump's actions where he just continues to escalate even further. suggests that he's interested in that and some can we even go so far then as to suggest that the powerful transatlantic alliance is over no of course not i think i think there's more than just trade that the bombs the us in the you but it's certainly under strain and it's certainly not in great shape at the moment and i think it would be
9:34 am
. quite bad for both parties if if if if the trajectory was to continue on this on it's done with pop and deborah are we witnessing then the young raveling of the of the established world order the conventional way of doing things a system that's been in place a seventy years also largely put in place by the u.s. and its western allies is this now unraveling well that's how it looks to many people and i think that is what is causing such concern among many people who have watched the system it's it's a couple of things so one is is it unraveling if so it seems to be unraveling quite quickly it took seventy years to build the system to where it exists today it can all topple over very very fast and we may be reaching a breaking point much sooner than people anticipate i know we're counting on for example the world trade organization to help stabilize things but the u.s.
9:35 am
is also undermining the w.t.f. ability to do that and we reach a critical point here in october where the the w t o itself is going to struggle to to handle these disputes that are being thrown at it because the judicial system at the w t o is going to be hamstrung in its ability to resolve these cases so if that system stops working then we revert to a sort of you know law of the jungle which is what we had in the you know one nine hundred thirty s. and forty's and i think for people who study the trade system the alarming thing is how long it took to get us to this place where trade is consistent and relatively stable and where risks can be medicated and where companies large and small can trade with one another where consumers get the largest amount of benefits and if that tips over how long does it take to to rebuild that system i think that's
9:36 am
that. danger and that's why people who are trade folks are watching this all unfold and just can't even figure out how to address the challenge because it has. where do you even begin i mean you can say i would we can all resolve this if we sit down around the table who's sitting around what table there really aren't a lot of places to do that the timelines are very very short the system itself is not set up to handle this kind of threat from the largest power that has traditionally gained the largest benefits from that system what do you do in response and i think everyone is struggling to figure out where do we go from here and stephen so we know that president trump is is perhaps more comfortable in a bilateral setting he's not a motor naturalist at all but there are many people around the world who are pretty concerned about the damage that is being done by his administration to the
9:37 am
multilateral institutions that have governed the world pretty much safely and kept away an awful lot of the chaos that deborah has has eluded to for the past seventy years if the away of the last thing damage that is being done. well i believe there's a lot of overreacting and i'd like to experiment expand upon what sam said we've got a lot more in common with each other we have a long history with our allies we're all involved in fighting terrorism around the world where we're involved with all sorts of other things other than the terrorists and the economic implications so i kind of look at this as a big family squabble but stability then to do this in the face of the status ari to sorry to interrupt but it does seem very much as though president trump who is as everybody now knows is the transactional president to him but actually everything comes down to cost even when it comes down to issues of fighting terrorism of security and defense he wants nato his fellow nato members to pay more
9:38 am
for that defense and so when he's even suggested that the joint exercises with south korea suspended as a result of coast as as a as a result of course yes and he's made it very clear that the united states is not going to pay everybody's way anymore whether it be true military might whether it be true economic issues and that's what he promised the american people as i said in my opening statement you want fairness i think the american taxpayers are certainly in agreement with you that they just don't want to carry the load for everyone world wide and there's nothing wrong with that that's called fairness and deborah i'm just wondering whether this system that we have had in place for seventy years or so whether it is actually in need of a reboot perhaps it its served its purpose is now time to change it because as we now know there are many people who have not benefited atoll from this period of
9:39 am
globalization from the seventy years of bretton woods and so perhaps it is time for it to be shaken up. well i i think there is some merit to that but i'm not certain that you want to knock over the whole system and think that you're going to get a better outcome especially for those who haven't seen benefits over a period of largely peaceful global economic growth i mean if you didn't have economic benefits during seventy years of peaceful economic growth then i don't see how you're going to get economic benefits from a period of economic nationalism that rarely works out in people's favor so this is the challenge i think one of the consequences of an america first strategy is that america will find that there are costs to be paid from putting america first and one of those costs is that other countries will seize the initiative and start setting rules that are less favorable to the u.s. more favorable perhaps for other countries and other regions and certainly here in
9:40 am
asia there is multiple efforts underway to try to write new rules for trade in particular. that exquisite united states that are available for us companies who want to capture the largest parts of the growing economic marketplace in this region we have almost four billion consumers in asia growing middle class and so forth those rules will be written without the united states and i think that that is going to be very interesting. the more that the united states challenges the existing status quo the more attractive those alternative possibilities become and you know i'm not so sure that people who are triumph and lead cheering behind trump's ideas now will be equally happy with the results at the end you know to write one year to year live years down the road let's put that to stephen then stephen there's
9:41 am
a real danger that given the new world order that is being created from the turmoil that is in ceiling as a consequence of the trumpet ministrations policies and a new world order is emerging the rules of which are being written by somebody else and they're not going to include you in washington d.c. that's a real danger. well let's wait and see but i could tell you that when you look at west virginia virginia and pennsylvania and other states where the steel mills of closed and that are going to reopen and thousands of people are going to go back to work and our economy is growing well we're a very resilient nation you know that we pounce back and meet any challenge that comes our way no one wants to be isolated from the world neither goes president trump but i go back to that word fairness we need to make sure that everyone in this case especially in the president's mind and in the minds of the american people that the united states is treated fairly well and so i go back to my
9:42 am
original case there will be i believe in that at the end of the day a sit down with them we want to run a table and we're going to work these things out so that everyone is treated with fairness let's put that to you then sam clearly president company has to pull it has believed that the united states is being treated unfairly are they being treated unfairly and they say by whom and what can be done about it. it's a slightly bizarre situation when you see sort of the one global superpower sort of masquerading under a victim complex i mean who is treating the u.s. so unfairly it's the rules based system that we operate on was dodged lead driven through at the behest of the u.s. and it's largely largely works when we're talking about terrorists as you said at the beginning of the program e.u. and us import tariffs in terms of on a trade weighted basis around two to three percent they're about the same so so so it's a sort of it's just difficult to understand where this where this complex as it has
9:43 am
arisen from but going back to one of the earlier points as well does the u.s. is retreat from the world provide opportunities for other other other nations other groups of nations to take the initiative i think yes i think trump pulling out of the trans-pacific partnership allowed the e.u. to finalize its agreement with japan you've just seen the e.u. open up negotiations with australia and new zealand we've seen it's just upgraded its agreement with mexico in all of these agreements is pushing an export is exporting its own regulator frameworks its own way of doing things and i think and i think there is something to be said that the us is going to find that if this continues and isn't resolved soon in the retreat into itself into isolationism into its own victim calm for a cop complex continues it's going to find that the world around it changes and perhaps not in the way it likes steve having having heard that and how apprehensive are you that perhaps there's been
9:44 am
a miscalculation on the part of the president and his team and that this this could indeed escalate into a full scale trade war of which perhaps nobody actually benefits from armed are going to operate at all in fact are up the mystic there will not go into a full scale troop works i believe there are a lot of book cool heads in the tropic ministration in the e.u. . at the end of the day everyone's going to be sitting down as i said and say look we've got a choice here we go down a road where everyone gets hurt as you said or we go down a road where everyone is going to be able to come together solve this problem and work together so that everyone benefits i'm going to have to just look donald trump has made a lot of promises that he's kept those promises are remember with north korea he was being condemned ridiculed and criticized it look where we are today with the korean consulate we just got about everything that we want the chairman kim got the
9:45 am
things he wanted why because at the end of the day everyone sat down and said we're we going to work this and i believe we're going to see a good outcome with regard to the right steve i mean obviously stephen there are those that point to the fact that nothing has actually happened when it comes to denuclearize ation on the korean peninsula having said that let me get the final wet please to deborah because i think perhaps i'm a stark contrast of cols was the scenes from the g seven in quebec and then the shanghai cooperation organization meeting in complete harmony all say it would appear and achieving an awful lot in terms of does look that contrast i think as a native around the world i think it did and i think you are going to see and we're already seeing right now particularly here in asia. surprising amount of unity and different things that have been blocked for a long time so as an example we have a sixteen party trade agreement here in asia called our step that has been not
9:46 am
stalled but it's been moving very slowly for quite some time i think it will accelerate tremendously and they are trying to have this substantial conclusion before the end of this year i think we're going to see that done the transpacific partnership was going to be brought into force early next year many countries are fast tracking it it will probably be in force before the end of this year that would not have happened had we not had such an acrimonious g seven meeting that got everyone's attention. and they said wow it's not just it's not just the things like the two three two arguments about national security it's the rhetoric it's the language it's those turning your back on allies that has caused people to say in asia particularly we have to take care of ourselves clearly and so we will do so we will pick up whatever pieces we can in whatever format works for us and we will create whatever situations we that we think work to keep open the path to prosperity to keep open the jobs opportunities for ourselves because we can no
