claire richardson in quebec city where some tough talk there from the u.s. president how did that message go down with the other g seven leaders are they now going to think twice about retaliatory tears. well that's definitely donald trump doubling down on his world view that the u.s. is getting a bad end of the deal and that is predecessor presidents negotiated unfair trade agreements that we just heard trump essential suggesting that some of its close allies and partners are robbing the united states to use the words that there is a piggy bank that everyone is robbing that would be the united states and look at these steel and aluminum tariffs that went into effect at the end of last month have been front and center throughout the g seven summits trading partners in this group to see it as unfair trading practices canada even called it a legal and it seems clear that they are going to go ahead and impose retaliatory measures because they see that as the only way to ensure that the world continues to operate in a rule based international order that they feel that donald trump and the united
7:04 pm
states have been threatening. or a trump also talked about a scheduled summit with north korea's kim jong singapore let's listen to a little bit about what he had to say. and he was. never going to be there again so i really believe that he's going to do something very positive for his people for himself his family. he's got an opportunity the likes of which i think almost if you look into history very few people have ever had. he can take that nation with those great people and truly make it great so it's a one time it's a one time shot and i think it's going to work. certainly expecting a breakthrough in singapore is that optimism shared by the other g seven leaders.
7:05 pm
that's certainly what the world is waiting to see trump sounds optimistic but he is also in some ways snubbing partners here at the g. seven summit by leaving almost an entire day early he's on his way to singapore for this historic meeting with the north korean leader kim jong un but in doing so he's essentially signaling to the leaders of the countries here that his priorities really lie with meeting with the north korean dictator rather than trying to bridge differences and hash out agreements with some of the united states' closest partners which clear to say thanks so much for joining us from quebec. all right we can move on now to some other stories making news around the world the kremlin says it's considering vienna as a possible host city for a summit between president vladimir putin and u.s. president dollars from trump had said in march for the two leaders would have a face to face meeting soon but last month he called it unlikely really deteriorating times. putin has reportedly discussed

german city of ease bodden he was detained by police in iraqi kurdistan yesterday after german authorities said he had fled the country he's reportedly being extradited to germany as it is expected at frankfurt airport later today that case has stoked the immigration debate here in germany. bit of an understatement actually this is creating big political waves hence we have our political correspondent thomas barrel with us here in the studio to tell us what are all the aspects in this particular case that is leading to a lot of interest in the public here well the first aspect is obviously the case itself the pop the fact that we're talking about a fourteen year old girl the fact that we're talking about rape and murder but obviously the second aspect is that the main suspect as we've just seen is this twenty year old iraqi who had come to come to germany as part of the refugee crisis and then applied for asylum his asylum application was rejected the following year two thousand and sixteen but had been able to stay in germany while he appealed his
7:08 pm
tastes the fact that we're talking here about this failed asylum seeker obviously has meant that the debate about migration in germany the debate about integration in germany and the debate in general about what to do with asylum seekers that are arriving the country has become much more interesting and much more controversial yeah this is really getting a lot more fuel to the debate on asylum policy migration policy or in germany i mean not only do we have the fact that this is a crime allegedly perpetrated by margaret margaret who was here some two years after his asylum was was rejected someone who apparently may have had some other brushes with the law since coming here i mean how how broken is this policy well the thing is we can see this as an isolated case as a big scandal now here in germany regarding the office for migration of refugees a so-called bomb it has been alleged that one of the branches of bomb in the city of bremen misappropriate the old mishandled one thousand two hundred applications

7:10 pm
parties that are saying that the f.d.a. is using a human tragedy is the case of a fourteen year old girl for political benefits and they shouldn't be doing so so obviously also from a political perspective is a very big debate as to what should be done and to what extent one can interpret this specific case of this girl as a also a political problem in germany right thomas barrow there is a lot to talk over here with that's where we're going to leave it for now we will move now to sports tennis romanian simona halep third trip to the french open final ended like a fairy tale the world number one defeated american sloane stephens at roland garros in comeback style how it lost the first set six three but managed to bounce back she took the match winning the last two set six four six one how it has been a runner up in three grand slams the french open is her first title. defending world cup champs germany have ended their five game when le streak seeing
