10:51 pm
announced a few hours earlier that china will tax an additional $75000000000.00 worth of u.s. goods also starting next month that came at the end of an already tumultuous day earlier friday the u.s. president tweeted and order to american businesses move supply chains out of china immediately trump does not in fact have the power to command u.s. businesses to leave china but he does have leverage he can encourage them he cannot give them government contracts for example that if they're buying things from the government or strine a sell things through the government but no he can't he can't stop the tweets still spooked investors the dow jones closed more than 2 percent down the tech heavy nasdaq index was off by 3 percent both signs of the importance of the chinese market to u.s. companies all of this comes at
10:52 pm
a particularly vulnerable time in trump's presidency a growing number of economists forecast a u.s. recession on the horizon driven partly by the white house trade policies trump has responded by blaming everyone but himself i think the word recession is a word that's inappropriate because it's just a word that the. the church people are going to be kind of certain. people in the media are trying to build up because they'd love to see a recession trump also took on president it aim at the chairman of the u.s. federal reserve the central bank lowered interest rates last month but not as much as trump hoped that earned its chairman this comparison from trump who is our bigger enemy jay powell or chairman c. the chinese leader president trump will spend the weekend in france at the g. 7 meeting with fellow leaders of major industrialized nations the white house has asked concerns of a global recession to be front and center and no doubt the u.s.
10:53 pm
china trade escalation will dominate those discussions castro al-jazeera washington which the 7 leaders continue to arrive in france to attend the summit including donald trump earlier he met with france's president of money on the call let's go live now to be a rips our diplomatic editor james bays is with us james to what extent is this trade war between the u.s. and china set to dominate this summit. it's certainly very important because of the effect it could have and is already having just look at the prices of shares in the way they fell on stock markets on friday global economy and the g 7 it was built originally to for these key economic powers to look at the global economy and it's a time of some concern not just that trade war there is concern about trade disputes between g 7 countries look for example the host country france and its new
10:54 pm
digital services tax targeting u.s. tech giants like google and amazon that i think is not going to please president trump he's already made it clear he's not happy is already made it clear he could retaliate he's already said one possibility is higher taxes on french wines imported into the u.s. earlier on we heard from the president of the european council donald tusk and he had a tough response to that. i will not back then trying. him over genuine determination for many reasons. and of course do you stand by france if the u.s. impose a star if. you will respond in kind the law think we need to be. gone from nation specially with our best ally the united
10:55 pm
states but of course. this is not our initiative this is trade center of struggle but we have to be ready for this but you know and we are ready james president trying got straight down to work upon his arrival here to coffee with president mccraw of france what was your reading of the body language there. well i see the suspect things like that possible escalation of a trade war between france and the us is one of the reasons why president mccraw was very keen to have president trump here we know the u.s. president wasn't particularly keen to come to this but also to have him here 1st and sit down with him before any of the other leaders try and get him on the same page president michel has seen what's happened at previous g. 7 summits he's seen what president trump can do he knows i suspect from reading twitter in recent days that president trump seems to be in somewhat of
10:56 pm
a difficult mood in recent days so i think he's tried to get him on side he's also pretty late in the planning of this included a meeting on global trade just at the request of the u.s. so bending over backwards i would say to try and make sure that the disruption that has come from the u.s. side since trump has been president of these sort of summit meetings won't happen here but they're prepared if there is major disagreement because they're not going to come up with a final communique that's the normal thing that comes out of one of these summits a list of agreed plan agreed decisions they realize there are so many issues not just on trade on the climate on iran the approach to iran so we different areas where there are disagreement that they would not get a communique with words that are long could sign up to so they're not going to have a communique our diplomatic editor james p. is reporting live from the g.
10:57 pm
7 summit in beirut james many thanks as we mentioned the fires that are burning in the amazon rain forest likely to be one of the big topics at g. 7 summit earlier president emanuel mark or france called for swift action as an atheist not the arizona is our common good we are all consumed so in the image on we will launch a mobilization between all g 7 countries to go. with emma zoning in countries 1st we need to help brazil and other countries put out these fires and then we need to invest in reforestation and allow locals to develop that will preserve this forest brazil's president. ordered the military to help put out the fire as he's been criticized for his handling of what some leaders call an international crisis blames unusually warm temperatures for the president and places. reports now from the states of one of the worst affected regions.
10:58 pm
forest fires happen every year in brazil but it was the sheer scale this year shocked the world the so-called world's lungs were on fire strong criticism firstly from within brazil and the rest of the world forced president. to respond. forest fires happen all over the world so this is no reason to impose international sanctions brazil will continue to be as it is now a country that is friendly with everyone and is responsible in protecting its amazon forest. but he's been accused by many of creating the very conditions he is now trying to control but there's a defiance from the president and resentment from his supporters and other countries telling was ill what to do. or don't agree that other countries should come here to presume we don't go to other countries to upset them you don't see brazilians they're causing problems only working to seen money home to invest here this is pioneering country the brazil's main population centers also nardo had
10:59 pm
a message that resonated here. i'm 63 years old and i'm never seen a president as honest as this one who confronts the problems and says what has to be seed is defending brazil. these are people who came to tame the forest to cut a bird to carve a future from what they consider to be a wilderness this particular blaze may not be huge but is one of tens of thousands burning across brazil some control some not some illegal some legal what's clear is that few will be investigated but the consequences will eventually be felt around the world. the fires are being put out but what's left is this black and devastation which will take many years to recover. 70 percent of the state of the dawn year has already been developed the forested for lucrative timber then burned to create land for cattle rearing and sawyer production the rest is up
11:00 pm
for grabs and no one it seems is stopping them at the moment if you burn the forest you are backed up by a president and then you do exactly as you want to do because you know nothing will happen and that's a problem and we have seen statistically when this law enforcement fires in deforestation goes down when we don't have it because of the fires are still burning but will bolster naro bend on the heat of international pressure or bow to the ambition of some his strongest supporters that there are visitor ground on your state northwestern brazil thousands of people obsessed to the cross last america against the fires in the amazon persistence gathered in rio de janeiro calling for greater action on this run and run lead in colombia peru chile.
