tv   NEWSHOUR  Al Jazeera  July 16, 2018 9:00pm-10:00pm +03

9:00 pm
this is al-jazeera. the news hour live from london coming up in the next sixty minutes. russia did not meddle in the twenty six thousand presidential election after extended talks in helsinki. there was no collusion i didn't know the president. there was nobody to collude with. another step towards peace after twenty years of conflict eritrea reopened its embassy in ethiopia. for evidence of violent repression in nicaragua government backed paramilitary forces are accused to raiding homes kidnapping people and executing them.
9:01 pm
all of the days. when is front arrived back time. coming up. a highly anticipated one on one meeting between donald trump and vladimir putin has ended in helsinki the two men spoke for two hours behind closed doors before briefing the press the question on almost everyone's lips was whether they discussed the elephant in the room claims that russia meddled in the twenty six thousand presidential election it turns out they did with putin again denying any involvement. could you name a single fact that you want to definitively prove the collusion this is.
9:02 pm
just like the president's recent dimensions. there was no collusion with the campaign and every time you hear all of these you know twelve and fourteen it's stuff that has nothing to do and frankly they admit these are not people involved in the campaign but to the average reader out there they're saying well maybe that does it doesn't and even the people involved some perhaps told mr henri's old bill in one case the f.b.i. said there was no lie there was no somebody else said there was. we ran a brilliant campaign and that's why i am president. that i had to james bass has been following the outlets from how sinkhole. you might think that if you have the most two most powerful people in the world meeting and they reach broad agreement on an important issue then then the world should be rejoicing but this most important issue is the most toxic issue in the united states and we saw president
9:03 pm
putin coming up with some new suggestions following the indictment of those twelve russian hackers that the special counsel robert mueller say were members of russian intelligence and president trump said that they were great ideas suggesting perhaps that he would suggest that they should be pursued but these ideas i don't think are going to go anywhere with regard to much of the political establishment in washington or with special counsel miller because what president putin is suggesting is that either he can investigate those twelve suspects his own or thora says but of course they are accused of hacking on behalf of president putin or remarkably they could be a joint team from the u.s. and russia who could come investigate this and speak to those twelve that sounds good but then president putin said a condition for that would that team would be able to go to the u.s.
9:04 pm
as well and investigate people there and proceedings then got even more unusual when president trump was asked whether he believes president putin that there was no hacking and no collusion or whether he believes the u.s. intelligence agencies and he completely dodged the question and started saying we've got to find the servers referring to hillary clinton's e-mail service he then went on about the twenty sixteen election even though it's twenty two months on saying i beat hillary clinton easily relate to gating a race and trying to reassert his legitimacy a most. new jle news conference which is already seen john brennan the former head of the cia take the amazing step on twitter of accusing a sitting president in a news conference with the russian president of treason we're joined now by
9:05 pm
a senior political analyst on what overall would you say this summit has achieved but there are three things i walked away with one this was a business like someone that achieves very little business and basically no deals whatsoever. and certainly it's a summit that was supposed to reach new heights in fact it through each new laws because. it's a bottomless summit in it's in every possible way in terms of reaching deals in terms of reaching understanding in terms of clarifying issues for the general public in terms of understanding about regional issues in terms of fears of influence in terms of great bargain that happens between you know between two great superpowers and all of these there was very little accomplished and last but not least. certainly president putin walked away from the summit having given very little and present thump has once again during the summit emphasized what he
9:06 pm
tweeted at seven o three in the in the morning that in fact the russian american relations are at their worst because of america and because of american presidents and because of american democracy rather than because of a keast russian meddling or russian intervention or russian wars in the middle east and so on so where do you see this with end of the trump and where you go forward with this meeting is eighty to a lot of his allies in europe and he's in a criticize the canadian prime minister he's attacked angela merkel before a nato summit and been quite critical of these people are actually his allies and yet when he's on the stage with putin he doesn't appear to want to put the boot in a may as places a different it's a different situation but does it where does it leave the people who are supposed to be his allies can they trust him in futuro as a as a realize you know i've heard a lot of discussions about trust and people say well you know you might not agree or disagree with him but he certainly speaks his mind but you know i'm not sure for
9:07 pm
example i would be very comfortable with a racist speaking his mind i don't know why is that's a good thing that we know that the racists can be a racist and hence we should be confortable and trusting them because they speak their mind. you know one can say that in certain issues trump speaks his mind and his can't be trusted because he actually doesn't lie he speaks his mind but that's not necessarily a good thing if whatever he you know spits out is not exactly a good thing but rather a racist or a chavez mistake or what you know which i think he does that's one thing to think to say that europe is a fall and it's a really easy go with putin that america needs to get along with that certainly doesn't sound good for anyone let alone europeans who had seventy years of alliance with the united states last but not least. look we are bombarded by sort
9:08 pm
of american liberal or western liberal approach this issue and hence the legal issue here of russian intervention or russian crew jand with the campaign is major . but for me for us for the rest of the world that's not the main issue the main issue is the russia and the united states have spent over a trillion dollars or would spend over trillion dollars over the next decade or two on nuclear modernization it's the fact that when they speak of syria both of them speak of israel's security as if the hundreds of thousands of casualties in syria don't count for anything in fact present trump dares say we will be saving hundreds of thousands of lives in syria when both leaders the american and russian leaders are responsible for the total implosion of syria because of the proxy war that's been going on there more of the same when it comes to the global middle east iran arab israeli conflict and so on so forth we've heard little concrete from the two
9:09 pm
superpowers around the world who are if they are not responsible for some of the major treasure these we see in the world they're certainly not been taking their responsibilities to contain any of those conflicts or to help resolve them so there's a lot to be said about the collusion and the legal issues and the intervention of medical options but there really is much more to be said about the world situation as we live it and putin and trump responsibilities and really making things worse not better. thank you very much indeed ok how kit is live in washington for a senate committee what kind of reaction is there any u.s. to all of this. well when we focus on the members of congress i think it's safe to say that there has been universal shock and dismay at donald trump's performance in that meeting with the russian president vladimir putin it's not surprising democratic members of congress longtime vocal critics of the president certainly
9:10 pm
putting those statements out but it is the ones from the members of his own republican party albeit the strongest criticisms coming from some of his critics within the republican party but still there seems to be general consensus in the in terms of his performance being both shameful a disservice to the country john mccain prominent member of the u.s. senate a republican member of the senate saying that he believes that donald trump's appearance and performance is one of the most disgraceful by an american president memory and the top republican in the u.s. house of representatives paul ryan the speaker saying there's no question that russia interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy not just in the united states but around the world the consensus seems to be the concern that donald trump blamed both the russia but also the united states for the deteriorate relationship between the two countries but went even further in that giving of moral equivalence many seem to believe here in the united states
9:11 pm
particularly members of congress on both sides of the political aisle that that essentially was a propaganda win for the russian president and beyond outrageous and he wants you to come over. what i think we're going to see there is the possibility of hearings of course none of that has been announced just yet but what we could see given this bipartisan outrage is a push for a piece of bipartisan legislation that has been hanging around but maybe getting some traction on that something called the deter act and what that would do is looking ahead given the fact that there has been conclusive decisions made by a number of law enforcement agencies here in the united states intelligence agencies that russia did interfere in the twenty sixteen u.s. election looking ahead to the twenty eight thousand congressional elections that are now looming in november that if there was definitively found to be any conclusion that russia interferes in those elections there would be a snapping into effect of sanctions in the oil and banking sector against russia so
9:12 pm
expect that there could be some push for that because at the same time there certainly is this feeling in the words of a top democratic senator on that senate intelligence committee that has concluded there was russian interference in twenty sixteen that the senate needs to stand up to vladimir putin that this is one of those times and there's also been a little bit of humor injected into all of this given the seriousness of the situation one prominent republican lindsey graham in the senate saying that football that was given or or soccer ball as it's called here in the united states that was given to donald trump by vladimir putin the perhaps should be checked for listening devices and never allowed into the white house thank you very much indeed . in. live from london still to come on the program. the. demanding water jobs and electricity protests in southern iraq and to the

9:14 pm
is a visit was considered almost inconceivable just two weeks ago because he was the month blamed for the stalemate between the two countries for most of the past two decades but when he came he was warmly welcomed treated thousands of ethiopians lining the streets where he went chanting his name and all these proximity and hold your relationship between the two countries is definitely going to benefit the people of the two countries in eritrea there's been the force conscription and returned military are lost something that is true as i hope people will now see this in ethiopia a landlocked country needs the two course that's going to trail hard which have been its traditional support and also the first flight from ethiopia to eritrea is planned for today so a lot of benefits for both sides of the border. international pressure is growing on nicaragua as government after the deaths of ten more protesters on sunday at

9:25 pm
a coalition against that because many european business executives here also share trump's concerns about doing business in china china's leaders have promised to further open their economy to foreign investors the message from the e.u. officials on monday we hope you mean it this time china has made strong pleas to keep markets open and fight protectionism this is reassuring to the e.u. and its business community however we would like to see these encouraging words translated into more concrete action from china to further open up investment even before the trade war began ten days ago china's economy was starting to slow a monday figures showed the growth fell slightly from six point eight to six point seven percent in the last quarter factory output was at its lowest in two years most of what these factories produce are for export which for now underpins china's

9:27 pm
process there is a small rumble geology public movement known as the realize which actually wants wants to return to conflicts and what we've seen over the last few nights in what they call derry londonderry nights nights of rioting seeming to have been coordinated by these people where they got childrens against roseanne's the police seemingly hoping the police might but i can fire and then a missile fired at gerry adams house which seems to come from the same the same sort of people and so it's a fracture inside the republican movement their chin fine leadership behind me there is speaking to this this crowd of ours nationalists in west belfast saying to them you've got to police your own community we've got to stop these people from setting the agenda and if he's in the situation in northern irish politics what is a total power vacuum for eighteen months now with no functioning government and the fear from these people is that the hard core elements they want to resolve of the armed struggle will try to exploit that power vacuum and then now having to try to
9:28 pm
stop it themselves and how does this play against the backdrop of question marks about the hard border and bret's it. well it's i mean we know and we've spoken to republicans also aliza around the border in places like derry who say they realise i would like nothing more than a hard blow to the comeback so they can open fire at it as a way of salt in the struggle again and the enormous difficulty of the bridge come it's got itself into and they the lack of clarity over that is yet another problem that these people are going to face clearly if you don't want to start the armed struggle again you don't want to chance a wall in northern ireland then keeping the border open is absolutely crucial for that and the the lack of clarity from the british government as well as the power vacuum in northern ireland is yet another problem for this constituency to have to deal with frank you very much. they were the sole news or more ahead for you including former u.s. president barack obama visits his ancestral village in kenya with

9:30 pm
four degrees a bit further towards the south and the winds here in doha will be feeding down from the northwest over the next few days and that's good news in a way because that's a draw a direction for the air so it looks like it won't be too few minutes but it will be hot so around forty five degrees will be our maximum temperature there as we head through tuesday and wednesday to the south coast of oman there will be a bit more cloud hey it could just squeeze out one or two shout but i think for most of us it will be drawing just a bit grey at times they will say be more clouds around the coast of yemen as well down towards the southern parts of africa where some fairly heavy rain here that's working its way across the western parts of south africa but it's fizzling out there as we head into cheese day. building a new life on an entirely beach living off the sea and. a dream

9:34 pm
maybe. that was it at the top level as a reconciliation what about the people on the ground in the areas that were contested they on board with this or is there still a possibility that they could. be against it in the longer run. i think. the way in which people. here. does not necessarily. mean. countries but i think it's important. to be sensitive in terms of how you.

palestinian school is having to start its new six weeks early because if it is demolition it's located in a small bedouin community. which israel wants to build so it can expand a settlement stephanie decker reports. their summer holidays been cut short but none of these children seem too bothered they will know why they are here. so that we have people inside the school so the israelis won't demolish it. a sally lives a ten minute walk away over the mountain this school doesn't only serve one but it's the only school in the area for these bedouin children. we want to demolish the whole community and transport us and take the land the israeli supreme court will set a day to respond to an appeal to stop the demolition by the fifteenth of august and as of today with the clearing of the opening of the next scholastic you should have started on the first of september but rather today on the sixteenth of july we
9:37 pm
decided to launch its will to proceed any attempt on the part of the occupation forces to knock down the school it's not just the school which is our predestination but this entire village looks like a small basic and unimportant bedouin community that when it comes to this conflict it is all about land and who has access to palestinians tell you what is happening here is indicative of a wider israeli policy to push palestinians off this land and replace them with israeli settlers we need an israeli student he's come from tel aviv to see for himself what is happening here i mean it's an obvious strategy to try to push. communities into cities and expand the settlements around here and basically clear for potential cities to jewish israeli cities settlements to expand and in the meantime make life of palestinian harder and harder that's already apparent just by
9:38 pm
looking around here the large illegal israeli settlements and smaller outposts overshadow the scattered bedouin communities the bedouin have been here since the one nine hundred fifty s. and they don't want to leave but they say israel is doing everything it can to change that stephanie decker al-jazeera. former u.s. president barack obama has urged kenya's leaders to come ethnic tensions during his first visit to his father's birth country since leaving office is helping his half sister launch a sports and training center in their ancestral village of kogelo earlier obama met kenya's president who can yet or is heading to south africa next to mark the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of nelson mandela we know that real progress depends on addressing the challenges that remain that means rooting out the corruption that we can civic life it means no longer seeing
9:39 pm
different ethnicities as enemies or rivals but rather as allies and seeing the diversity of tribes not as a weakness but as a strength the u.s. national association for the advancement of colored people is holding its one hundred ninth annual convention in texas this year's focus is encouraging more people to vote ahead of important midterm congressional elections in november what is your castro is at the conference in san antonio how do you what's the and the main concern at the moment. well or it's printed right on the banner behind me defeat hate vote the first piece of that there has been a concerning uptick in hate crimes in the last year and a half two years ago united states and of course and mission is to not only combat that but also to organize and inspire african-americans to turn outrage into change
9:40 pm
and i'm joined by our guests here mr leon russell who is the chair man of the end. can you tell me what your concern is as far as the relationship that the end of c p c's between this uptick in hate crimes and the rise of the trump administration quite frankly we see. the fact that when mr trump went into the white house we began to hear the dog whistles of racism we see evidence beginning from the start with the band with the muslim band of racism and xenophobia creeping in we've seen and the creasing effort by the administration when it deals with this question of immigration which should be simple we should just come up with a. equally accessible immigration policy for all folks who need to come who want to come to the united states but instead we see all kinds of really races reasons. reasons that kind of remind me as i said last night of the otherness
9:41 pm
that african-americans experienced earlier in this country's history where people are did not i because of where they come from or that this is for us that would be a zip code so we see this discrimination at every level but we also see not just what we interpret but what we hear we had first of all with mr bannon in the white house a person who goes after he leaves the white house to france and says be proud of your nationalism be proud of your zina phobic attitudes so we see that policy has been being made by people who actually have those kinds of attitudes and then the immigration policy mr miller obviously is an immigrant and that means everybody and they want to american voters what do they take it from there how are you trying to inspire members to make some sort of difference the first thing we're saying to
9:42 pm
folks is look at this realize that all of us are immigrants ultimately all of us were part of a community that was considered the other when we first entered this country and understand that when this kind of rhetoric when this kind of attitude is being utilized in the public policy making a arena it is going to negatively impact all areas of our population and i know many are looking at the upcoming midterm elections and saying black voters may make a difference but the same was said in two thousand and sixteen when hillary clinton in the democratic party lost the presidency so how do you notice. fellow black voters to actually go to the polls come november well i think we all have to remember that hillary clinton lost the presidency even though she had a plurality over over three million voters but with respect to black voters there was
9:43 pm
a fall off there's and we don't appreciate that fall off from our community and we're telling them hey you need to be aware of the issues we need to help you understand the issues not who to vote for but what we need you to understand is you have a total impact on who becomes a policy maker in this nation and you need to understand that and you need to be after using that influence which is your vote and certainly that is the message thank you so much mr russell that is a message and a double a c.p. is trying to call alaska here in their annual convention and then spread around the country as a midterm elections come up in november lauren i do your question thank you very much indeed well asia's new government has been sworn in law here country's first transition of power in sixty one he is or is hoffa a member of members of parliament a new faces among them as prime minister. is expected to crack down on corruption

9:45 pm
