2:22 am
how welcome to the program. donald trump likes to call himself a tariff man the us president has imposed in paul duties to address trade imbalances with china canada europe and others now his threatening titus on mexico one of america's biggest trading partners says he would impose levies on mexican goods if it doesn't stop undocumented people from entering the u.s. many of the migrants escaping violence and poverty in central america that tartus with affects hundreds of billions of dollars worth of goods mexico's president says he's optimistic that talks in washington this week will lead to a solution. that there are international options that we could turn to if we
2:23 am
think that won't be necessary that we will achieve a good agreement through dialogue and we won't resort to legal processes we want to maintain good relations with the government of the united states while the u.s. and china have been imposing targets on each other over the past year china hit back on sunday with an official document blaming. the u.s. for their trade dispute the government accused washington of being an untrustworthy negotiator. we found if one side does not respect another size sovereignty at the core interest forcing one side to conceive through pressure to gain a resolve that is only beneficial to one side this kind of negotiation will not succeed book. let's bring in our guests now joining us on skype from north to term in maryland robert scott senior international economist a vehicle nomic policy institute in birmingham scott look us founder and editor of
2:24 am
world view and years analysis site and u.s. and international politics scott is also a professor at the university of birmingham also on skype from taipei russ feingold tony and republican political consultant welcome to you all robert i would like to ask you 1st why is trump taking aim at mexico is it because of a purely economic purpose or there is politics behind this whole enterprise. this is purely a political stunt trump is increasingly becoming a one issue candidate his policies this year have been dominated by determination to make the immigration issue a campaign centrepoint and he's an easy gauge an increasingly desperate move. shutting down the government for
2:25 am
a month over the border wall issue to now threatening tariffs that could undermine both the u.s. banks and economies masonic us if tom decides to go ahead with the targets impose a mexico what kind of impact we have on the economy well and itself it will cause a further rise in prices for manufacturers who bring in components and parts from mexico it will cause a further rise in prices for consumers who buy products from mexico if mexico decides to respond with its own tariffs it could make it more difficult for us farmers more expensive to send their products down south of the border but of course remember it's not just mexico because these tariffs come on top of the other mexico other tariffs including on the european union and especially on china and the chinese tariffs alone are estimated to cost $1.00 trillion dollars and u.s. cittie pay if they continue so it's now
2:26 am
a combination of the tariffs around the world where mr trump and his advisors are risking economic damage for whatever political gain they see loss we're talking about judy's though is thoughts with a sense and then will increase to 25 percent perhaps one of the most dramatic increases by the top administration says the start of its trade war isn't his sending a message to the mexicans that this is the beginning of a war against here guys. well the issue here is one of security in the united states also a humanitarian crisis only democrats or republicans in congress or state officials along the border throughout the united states would deny that there is a significant problem and the fact is the government of mexico does need to do more to prevent the people entering from southern mexico transiting through mexico and then trying to enter the united states shortly before we began this program
2:27 am
president trump sent its we were he called mexico an abuser you said is ease basically said that mexico's abused that their trade privileges that the u.s. extends to it that this strong relationship and return in return we have mexico not doing enough to prevent this tragedy that's occurring every day on the border the reality is is that tens of millions of americans are going to be very supportive of president trump's decision to be tough on mexico aust we have to keep that in mind if we follow of the line of reasoning value of thoughts and why would i upset the whole global trade system just for the sake of a border crossing issue between the mexicans and the americas the different ways to solve the problem. that the terrorists that president announced a few days ago it might be imposed later this week are with regard to mexico and a security issue that exists along the mexican united states border it's not related to broader trade concerns obviously president trump has used towers who are
2:28 am
threatened tariffs with a number of trading partners whether it's the e.u. china and others but this specific situation as we've been discussing clearly it's important to president trump politically but that doesn't change the fact that there is a crisis and action needs to betaken how disciplined to that is the roberts. in fact trade in immigration policy do not and should not mix we don't really have a. security crisis supporter busy what we have is our refugee crisis in fact unauthorized immigration in the united states as a share of the population is at its lowest level in a decade if we look at who's arriving here 61 percent of the people arriving were families and children trying to escape a drug war and this in the so-called triangle countries a lot of mana mama el salvador and honduras and these wars in turn have been funded
2:29 am
by the u.s. military and has been shipping tons of weapons to these governments where the tast aunt paramilitaries who are at hand in clubs with the gangs and the drug courts so just to the cops and there should be attack. so look as if the americans if the mexicans decide to retaliate against the titus imposed by the by the americans what kind of impact will he have on the american consumers. well if the mexicans retaliate then it will drive up prices for american consumers it will drive up prices for american manufacturers further but i think most importantly it will cause damage to american exports and in particular you look at the effect on american farmers who are already hurting because of the tariff or the trade war with china but i think beyond that immediate mexican retaliation the real danger
2:30 am
there is really the rhetoric that you heard from ross which is pretty much trump rhetoric which is to simply say that the entire problem there it's all the mexicans fault in fact as robert pointed out we didn't have an escalation in undocumented immigration until after donald trump took office in many ways this is a whipped up crisis by donald trump and by his advisors to try to take this into the 2020 election so yes trade policy is very much linked to immigration even though it shouldn't be and it is simply the idea that you can bully mexico by using twitter or by using trump spokespeople to put out frankly untrue remarks about what is happening in the immigration issue ross you've heard what the scots have been saying and then many even in america saying that trump is harming his own people the people who bay who voted for him that just give you an example as a mexican decided to retaliate us on explosive mexico which accounts for something like $20000000000.00 would be affected plus the the. 5000000000 cubic feet of
2:31 am
american gas which is pumped they would basis to mexico all of that would be disrupted which will have a knock on effect on the u.s. economy. these exports aren't going to stop it's true that max a kid consumer mexican companies might purchase last because their cost goes up but some cases in american exports lead back cost or some cases of mexicans will have no choice and they will buy that they will purchase the goods even with higher powers imposed by their own government but that we have to return to their the issue of the flow of people it's not fair to the truck to ministration to say that they manufacture this or it's the fault of the military assistance they give to government stair yet we don't know that those governments and institutions in central america are weak or corrupt and have a number about problems but but it's not fair to put my name in this on the trump administration you know people decide to leave whether they're for economic reasons
2:32 am
or they're seeking asylum for legitimate reasons but the fact is they are transiting mexico mexico does have an obligation to its neighbor the united states to do something on the southern border of mexico to prevent the people who are coming in from from the triangle countries to blame that trump or ministration or say that it's that manufacture crisis the that there's a bit of a disconnect there between the right alan he's on the ground which is this movement of people where does this whole crisis leave mexico are we going to going to see them in the near future adopting more of a protectionist approach to try to protect themselves or seal themselves against the ramifications of his thomas. well for better or worse the united states has a great deal over leverage over the mexican economy 80 percent of their exports go to the u.s. and mexico is much more export to and it. that is the united states united states
2:33 am
only about 12 percent of our economy depends on exports most of them go somewhere else so you might say that if this trade war actually takes place the united states economy might get a cold but mexico will get pneumonia and what happens when the mexico gets monia is they have no safety net and so what we will very likely get is a huge search in unauthorized immigration from mexico not the triangle countries as will be pushing mexico in a terrible recession missa look us is the spirit of nothing the started in 1900 full still belive and when trump is on the ballot the need to pull respect as an opposable levies on different countries for not just the spirit but the reality of nafta is very very relevant i mean this is a trade agreement for 25 years and indeed with the proposed revision from last
2:34 am
autumn which has brought benefits to the u.s. to mexico and to canada in multiple sectors but beyond the immediate immigration issue let's be very clear donald trump has never believed in nafta donald trump has wanted to shred nafta and some of the some of his hard leider along advisors to and to be honest with you what we're looking at here is a fundamental decision on wednesday chaired kirshner dollar trump son in law said to the president look you don't need to do this for your aunt timer gratian measure you don't need to put the tariffs on because you will threaten my talks with the mexicans trump overruled them which raises the question is donald per count prepared in fact to go further and to completely undermine nafta beyond the specific issue of the 5 percent tariff. was i'm in with. i listen to you talking about the need to fix the issue of security and undocumented migrants but trump is someone who has been talking for many decades about the japanese taken advantage of
2:35 am
the u.s. economy and then his chief of that narrative towards the chinese now he's taking aim of the mexicans what is he trying to achieve here because many people are saying populism is going to drive the united states of america into the obvious of catastrophe it's an excellent question and in fact in his tweets shortly before we began this program president trump mentioned that he does hope that american manufacturing would return to the united states from mexico possibly as a result of these new tariffs whether that will happen obviously it remains to be seen it's too early to make that judgment. president trump editions are criticizing japan as you mentioned in the 1980 s. and more recently nafta and china he's always been a proponent of american manufacturing return to the united states and if that is an outcome the tariffs which china or the terrace with mexico some of us might like that approach but it could be
2:36 am
a political victory for president trump to the extent that he could cite american manufacturers who expand their operations and higher in the united states and it might very well get him reelected what we're talking about the what ross has just been saying about this could be conducive to a 2nd term for donald trump i mean the the republicans have been saying over the past few years that the only way for america to be great again is to reconnect with this money factor in bass and that with the tardis like when it comes to illuminate him and steal the minute facts and we'll be able to go back and flawless like you did in the past how do you see this russian and is it really does it make sense from an economic perspective or is it blown out of proportion. i think the overall tariff policy pursued by trump is it is actually backfiring what we've seen is in fact that u.s. trade deficits have been going up and that's tending to push production away from america and take a just a particular example in this case the u.s.
2:37 am
auto industry is incredibly dependent on u.s. supply chain with mexico products move back and forth several times if these tariffs are imposed that add hundreds or even thousands of dollars the cost of a car made in north america this is going to reduce the ability of u.s. producers to compete in north america $2.00 things will happen one they will ship their supply chains to outside of the continent to start importing more cars from korea or even vietnam or malaysia and number 2 it will make for an imports more competitive so again this policy is going to be self-defeating if our goal is to rebuild american manufacturing if i can just make a final point the fundamental problem with the trump trade policy is that he's failing to deal with that sect that the u.s. dollar is uncompetitive he promised that on day one he would name china currency manipulator he has failed to do that we need to address the currency imbalance
2:38 am
which is a global problem and has very little to do was a small poor countries like mexico some of us i mean a city have a car columnist hans saying that basically quotas and levies could be the best way to cut trade deficit and in the case of mexico china and other ways they say that's what trump is doing is absolutely the right thing to do. we saw this in the 1930 s. we saw countries around the world try to impose quotas to protect themselves raise tariffs and it only made the depression worse the whole reason why we have developed trade agreements since the 1950 s. the general agreement on trade tariffs for example the reason why we have a world trade organization the reason why we have agreements like nafta is so that all sides can benefit from trade this idea that trump can just pull everything inside america this protections idea and it's going to be magic it's neko well now i agree with ross it might be snake oil that helps him politically in 2020 but the
2:39 am
bottom line is nobody nobody wants from a trade war and there is no way that donald trump on twitter is going to change that ross if you weighs a war against. us because this is affecting canadians mexicans and the europeans what kind of messes are you telling you the people you have worked together with for the last 70 years to build the mordant trade finance and political architecture though we know of today. i think this question goes to issues that so many of us have in trying to understand what is the trump and ministration or what is the trump policy on specific issues so we have to separate the rhetoric from the actions the president tries is not saying he doesn't want to have allies you know there's a whole debate about his feelings towards nato and threats that he made but ultimately in nato meetings and other nato activities the united states has been at the city
2:40 am
for us supporter under the trump administration it's the same thing with trade president trump is not saying he's against trade agreements he's not against the global trading system we're working with end it what he is saying and again there's a lot of support among democrats and republicans in the united states is some of the unfair trading practices of our allies or in some cases countries like china which is obviously not an ally be united states need to be addressed and previous agreements for the world trade organization have not adequately addressed these unfair trading practices and we can't deny that other countries have trade barriers against united states goods and services and in this case that that's just a fact and donald trump has identified terrorists as a way to address this but then him i disagree with you for just that simple reason the tump was surrounded by some of the people who are really in favor of a global approach and they would all events had not taken over particular when it
2:41 am
comes to the economy the knutsen of this all the protests this was brings me toss this question to. mr roberts if this is now more about protectionist within the top administration trying to shape his policies about the tatas is it possible still to have a globalized order that will swell for both the globalists and for the nationalists . well i think increasingly in fact trump is. trying to use threats and to punishes allies and not just on trade issues that year or so on immigration issues earlier we say it we saw the same. method being applied for example to induce could north korea where we threaten them with nuclear holocaust it got him a deal it got him a meeting with kim jong un but no agreement no change in their behavior and there again she should firing off test missiles so that situation has what hasn't worked
2:42 am
is not worked in the case of the terrorist threats and its rights to tear up the nafta agreement that didn't really get him much progress on the changing nafta deal that's from what i was there is a very small fine tuning of the details that's not going to fundamentally change the you know so the problem is that you can you can throw bombs and threaten to clear all it cost only so many times and at the end of the day people stop listening ok we're now moving into a period where i think foreign leaders and countries are beginning to say well let's just wait this guy is going to 18 months maybe he's going to go away and we can deal with the next guy a woman or i think this white house some of us have seen that document released by the chinese government's use of americans for being an untrustworthy negotiator saying that if the boys down to head it back of the tightest they would ultimately do the same thing and blacklist american companies the not sharing components where
2:43 am
the chinese potten is if the chinese decide to with holly it's how do you see the future of the international trading system. well i think if we get back to the point that robert talks about which is that there are trade issues but we need a scalpel to deal with them we need to do that so that all sides benefit if we can get back to that despite donald trump then we can take the pressure out of this the problem is and you've heard it from ross who simply is saying well we'll just use a sledgehammer to this we'll just you know everything instead of talking about currency values instead of talking about basically a negotiated arrangement in terms of exports and imports were to slap the tariffs on if that continues then if china retaliates and says well we will not give you rare earths renewable which are vital in everything from smartphones to computers if china decides to cut the u.s. off here's where we get we get to the idea that the u.s. is not at the center of the economy since we've had since 1905 but that the risk is that the u.s. will isolate it so what if china says we'll deal with europe we'll deal with india
2:44 am
we'll deal with russia and donald trump you sit on the side and see what we can. ross i mean i'll tell you why people as we speak because we're seeing from the way is conducting the. fighting policy when it comes to north korea same thing with the case when it comes to iran now he's trying to upset a trading system the has been prevailing for many decades talking about more than one trillion 2 $100000000000.00 when it comes to trade exchange with the north american countries mexico and the united states of america is talking about more than $600000000000.00 of trade exchanged between china and the u.s. you're talking about hundreds of billions dollars worth of trade stays between the e.u. and the united states of america one simple incident as currency because all over the world particularly comes as stock markets so how do you just to fly this move by the trump administration. well in the over 2 years that the tribe administration
2:45 am
has been in office it's fair to say that the tribe administration has some victories on trade issues he has got concessions from some of the other trading partners to say that the u.s. m.c.a. the new version of nafta has only minor changes that might be sure looking at the black and white at the ladders on the on paper but the reality is canada for example has made significant changes to to its treatment of u.s. dairy products that's a big victory not just for the trump administration but for american dairy exporters. south korea again trump came in toth said he wanted to reopen that trade agreement south korea eventually made changes so we see that with other trading partner said to say that he comes in with a sledgehammer you know these other accusations in the rhetoric that we've heard during this program if you keep it by that you didn't do all these things on day one or 6 months in an even china were over 2 years into the trump administration where president tried has finally raised the tariffs up to the levels that we have
2:46 am
now made at these rather high levels you do it on day one is trying to go shit for the last 2 and a half years so. is he not getting good deals for the united states that would be inaccurate to say because the reality is he has got no other countries to make concessions in the threat in the face of the threat of tariffs we might not like it you might prefer i don't bomb emitter or asian type of approach where we have lots of multi lassie appointing but but but that's not an approach that has always worked best for the last fortunate they were running out of time on a promise of a dozen to visit this particular issue and of use a. inside story. thanks to our guests robert scott scott look at us and ross feingold and thank you too for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting our website al-jazeera dot com for further discussion go to our facebook page that's facebook dot com forward slash a.j. inside story you can also join the conversation on twitter our handle is at a.j.

2:50 am
clinching the champion's league title. hello secretary of state my compost says the u.s. is ready to sit down and talk with iran with no preconditions about its nuclear program it's the latest sign of a softening stands between the 2 countries which have been trading threats for weeks but speaking in switzerland pompei or added the u.s. won't shy away from confronting what he calls iranian aggression. we're prepared we're prepared to engage in a conversation with no preconditions we're ready to sit down with them but the american effort to fundamentally. reverse the my line activity of this islamic republic this revolutionary force is going to continue and just days ago iran's president hassan rouhani said talks are possible if some important things happen 1st have examined. whenever the u.s.
2:51 am
stopped its cruelty against our nation put aside the cruel sanctions stands up for their commitments to return to the negotiating table which they left themselves the road is not closed but that the road is open i gather that a task. if the u.s. put aside cruelty in its policies returns to justice and returns to law the iranian nation will keep the road open for you it is in your own hands to show in practice that you do not want to continue your past cruelties and crimes well as amos ravi is monitoring reaction in tehran we'll hear from him shortly but 1st we'll cross over to washington where rozen jordan is standing by in pompei or has been one of the hardliners on iran rosalyn so is this a softening by the white house's position on the issue of teheran. well daryn it does appear to be a softening but whether or not it's a turning point is probably a much more difficult question to answer and that's because in recent weeks we have
2:52 am
seen the secretary of state might pompei of taking the lead on actions to try to hurt iran economically including the designation of the islamic revolutionary guard corps or r.g.c. as a foreign terrorist organization that has never been done before by the united states when it comes to a part of another country's government usually the organizations on this list include organizations such as al qaida such as boko haram such as who the fighters in yemen but you also don't see the u.s. for example allowing countries to have permission to buy iranian oil without the threat of facing sanctions that was another recent major rug cracked down in an effort to try to harm iran's economy and by extension persuaded to give up its ambitions of having a nuclear weapons program so it's
2:53 am
a softening of the rhetoric but unless you see a real change in u.s. policy it's not really clear daryn whether or not this is an actual turning point and perhaps an easing of tensions between the 2 countries an easing of the fears in the international community that there could be some sort of military confrontation between the u.s. and iran here in just a bit clearly rosalyn even though the secretary of state said that they're willing to talk to iran with no preconditions are there any signs at all that the u.s. will sort of relent and its campaign its maximum pressure campaign as it calls that's on iran. i would hazard to say no because we did hear the secretary of state say a short while later in that press conference that the u.s. was still going to be using these tactics to try to get iran to return to what the u.s. calls the international community of civilized nations you're not going to for example
2:54 am
see the u.s. . putting pressure on iran to stop operating its heavy water nuclear reactor the waste from that's generated by that reactor can be used as material in the construction of nuclear warheads you don't see the u.s. backing away from its demands that iran open its facilities to international inspection unfettered international inspection you don't see the u.s. saying that it is willing to actually return to the iran nuclear deal or that it is ready to actually negotiate a new deal is basically the status quo but a real softening in the secretary of state's language perhaps in part because of the growing international concern about a risk of yet another conflict in the middle east ok roslyn jordan with an update from washington fank you now let's get the view from iran as amos rafi is in the
2:55 am
capital. ever since the united states pulled out of the 2050 nuclear deal it has widened what was already a sizable trust gap between tehran and washington so the latest comments from u.s. secretary of state mike pompei you of talking to iran with no preconditions though a positive sign of a softer tone from washington was received here into her on by iranian leaders with a great deal of suspicion in a statement from iran's foreign ministry spokesman abbas mousavi said for the islamist republic of iran wordplay and expressing a hidden agenda with new words is not the foundation for practical actions for iran the basis is the. united states altering its approach and practical behavior towards the nation of iran but mr pompei was emphasis on the continuation of maximum pressure on iran shows it is the same long running old approach that needs to be revised so the message there is that for america talk is cheap but for iran
2:56 am
economic sanctions have been costly and continued economic pressure from those sanctions on the iranian people is unlikely to set the stage or the mood for any kind of conversation. because talking is. the continuation of the process of pressure he's imposing pressure this may work in the real estate market does not work in dealing with the last experience was not very optimistic and does not provide an optimistic. perspective for a future agreement if we are to take a positive view of things then both the united states and iran have softened their rhetoric in recent weeks both sides have seemed to walk back from the brink of war but iran's leaders have said over and over again they will not negotiate a nuclear deal with the white house of u.s. president donald trump they will not compromise on their defensive capabilities
2:57 am
they don't want to talk about things like the ballistic missiles program so what iran's leaders will be asking themselves with regards to this latest offer from the u.s. secretary of state mike pompei you know is if they're not going to talk about those things and the united states is unwilling to move on its position of a maximum pressure campaign then what is there left to discuss algeria's constitutional council has called off july its presidential election barely any of the candidates were able to register that's because of pressure from protesters who want the removal of politicians linked to former president had these beautifully demonstrations against the 82 year old began in february when he announced his bid to run for a 5th term many thought he wasn't fit to run it rarely been seen in public since having a stroke and 2013 by march the 11th the president was forced to reverse his reelection beds he promised reforms are named the new prime minister but was a fluke i was forced to step down in april under pressure from protesters and the army the july 4th election date was announced with

but isn't the government and they did they have to have a new column sunday to organize these elections some protesters want army chief of staff. to step in and remove the political elite but he's warned against what he says are attempts to create a power vacuum despite such warnings anti-government protesters seem determined to keep up the pressure until algeria's political stop which meant has gone. into monohan al jazeera at least 2 people have been killed in sudan and many more injured officer security forces opened fire on protesters thousands of demonstrators in the heart to have been staging a sit in outside the military headquarters demanding civilians be put in charge. to reports. this is what saddam's military leader don't want journalists although why do was to see a scene with echoes of the era of to post press didn't. the army which had
