4:10 pm
presidents normally don't criticize the fed. breaking rules it's nothing new for trump is it. well you're found some rules when you are the united states president you should those criticize the fact you should also not doubt what your intelligence people from the f.b.i. tell you also should not insult people on twitter but donald trump does not seem to know that i guess what he took over or he simply doesn't care what i guess people really didn't really care we have heard him saying that many times that he accepts loyalty and he has been clear also throughout his campaign that he is in favor of a very weak dollar investors mostly in the united states called the latest interview in which he criticized the monetary policy off the fed as a complete no go institutions like the fed also like the european central bank here in frankfurt need to be completely independent and it is even more surprising because it was donald trump himself who appointed germany powell for the position of fed chairman his predecessor janet yellen wanted to continue to work in this
4:11 pm
position but did not extend her contract you know it's another unwritten law commenting on the currency as a u.s. president but just how we could dollar does trump actually want. well for the moment and he got what you wanted the dollar went down to a two week a low actually the euro gain strength that is right now at the level of our one fifteen dollars usually when we have to scenario shares here at the docks go down this way but not today analysts don't believe that this is trying to set to continue and even though trample leaves that we dollar is better for the u.s. economy also exports in the united states are warning that this could have a rather negative effect for the economy and the boom that we have seen lately could be stuffed with a very weak dollar well could be over you heard from dana cope in frankfurt thank you. the united states and china are preparing to meet in washington this week to talk trade tariffs dispute is making doing business in china even less appealing to
4:12 pm
many american businesses apart from paying extra fees on exports and labor costs have been growing and regulatory compliance has become even trickier in some cases time to look elsewhere for over three decades american businessman larry slogan has exported millions of dollars worth of goods from china to some of america's biggest retailers but he's now reducing his exposure to china my next move is to. investigate opportunities in countries outside china. thailand cambodia. you see what i'm making in china can be made in those countries slogan tends to favor thailand as his new location he's impressed with the economic advantages for foreign investors there. no import export tax. no restrictions on work reeses.
4:13 pm
five to seven years no tax. no tax from the government so they have actively put in some ingredients so to speak. people making more in thai same with so many new manufacturing possibilities across asia in countries that are more affordable tariffs and favorable tax benefits some companies exporting to the u.s. are now rethinking their made in china policy. german chancellor angela merkel says she sees no urgent need to offer financial aid to turkey the lira has lost forty percent against the dollar this year turkey's leader calls the currency crisis an attack on his country but experts say he's the problem. whether it's a bridge over the bosphorus a newsstand ball subway system or an imposing mosque chickies president richard the one is known for his began visions. the country's construction sector has
4:14 pm
traditionally been an engine of economic growth. but recent events have put the brakes on turkey's economy so his banks and companies have accumulated four hundred seventy billion dollars of foreign debt and as the lira plummets it's getting ever harder to repay the loans analysts say interest rates need to be raised to offset the liras rapid decline they want the central bank to act independently of the government and believe the country should accept help from the international monetary fund something out of one has ruled out. there is no difference between the direct attacks on our call to prayer and our flag and the attack on our economy the goal is the same the goal is to bring to heel turkey and the turkish nation to hold it captive we are a nation that prefers to be shot in the neck rather than chained by the neck. that doesn't interest the ratings agencies there downgrading turkey ever further
4:15 pm
making it harder for the country to raise new money independent observers say the economy's biggest problem. i mean turkey is problem is not liquidity problem there are structural problems inflation is too high. interest rates are off the central banks are too low the chinese mega city of shenzhen has electrified its public transportation network sixteen thousand three hundred fifty nine buses it makes it a global leader and the city doesn't want to stop there. these bus drivers are waiting for their shift to start and wait one ton makes his last check before he gets behind the wheel of his electric bus diesel is now a thing of the past. i've been working as a bus driver in cheyenne zen for twenty years i've been working for the city for eleven days switching from diesel to electric buses was easy these buses are easier
4:16 pm
to steer quieter and better for the environment the diesel buses were loud and dirty. shines and is china's silicon valley and has more than fifteen million inhabitants this is where most high tech companies are located incomes here are the highest in the country it's china's fastest growing city and has the most electric buses almost seventeen thousand of them that's not much less than the number of people who lived here just forty years ago notions and aims to be china's showcase green city. buses are much better for the environment the old diesel buses weren't environmentally friendly they poison the air. i think it's great ebus is are just better you save money and there's less smog. that you'll need in the city has built five hundred ten charging stations with
4:17 pm
eight thousand charging bays not just in shines and china is investing big in electro mobility electric bus manufacturers receive government subsidies a better chance rate and a seventy thousand euro bonus for every bus built there were no lobbyists in china only the party and that means eva says e-cards a letter will build the no matter what the cost. shins and that is three point five million vehicles most are in private hands the municipal government is encouraging . is it instead of buy and use electric vehicles and engines and there's a limit to how many cars can be registered but that limit does plight with electric cars chansons electric buses china's policy concerning eve yukos they might not look much different but with quotas subsidies and incentives china is leading the way worldwide in switching to electric mobility. to the future of german
4:18 pm
football now. that's right been now it's a meeting behind closed doors and it's probably not the most comfortable day in the career of germany coach you got him live at the bundesliga headquarters in frankfurt live is giving his breakdown of germany's disastrous what's come before once he's talking to the head of the german football association and who manages of the league's top clubs for the first time in its history and despite being reading champions the german squad failed to advance beyond the first round of the cop and to talk more about this i'm joined now by a football expert emily rausch it's from the. welcome now this is the first of three meetings which are taking place and discussing a post-mortem of shock exit at the was a coffin of russia would there be any decisions taken today. as you said it's the
4:19 pm
first of three meeting some not sure that there will be decisions that are made today it was initiated by the head of the german football federation and had been the and the head of the german football league and how to albert and by and they've invited several of the top or most important people in german football you could say so they're going to evaluate the situation and is going to have to explain why he think germany failed and what steps he's going to take to make sure that germany goes on the right path again and i think that's going to be a very tough conversation to have i know absolutely very tough and what point do you think will be raised at this meeting first and foremost i think they'll all want to unite behind their bid to host the two thousand and twenty four european championships in germany because that's the big goal for german football but then they'll obviously also talk about the whole topic of missile which was heavily debated in the past months we know she posed for a picture with the aragon and he was really heavily criticized for that before during and after the world cup he kind of became a scapegoat for germany's early exit at the world cup and he took you know he took
4:20 pm
consequences from that he released a public statement accusing the president of the german football federation can do of using him as a scapegoat and of racial abuse within the german football federation very harsh words coming from the player and he said he's stepping down from the national team until he feels comfortable again basically or maybe forever we don't know you kind of left it open so that's something that surely will be debated whether there's you know they have to address the racism within the federation and how they can deal with racial abuse better than has already apologized and said he could have handled the horse but he has refused to step down and this is a debate which is of course polarized the nation now of himself has come under fair bit of pressure do you think you'd be forced to change his leadership style or the way he deals with some of the more experienced players what are you expecting what kind of analysis are you expecting for from him on jimmy's shocking kind of the. four months at the world cup it's very difficult to force
4:21 pm
a trainer to do something if he's not stepping down and he's willing to step up he's probably going to be very honest in his feedback i assume that he's going to take the blame as well for germany's early exit he's not going to shy away from that he's always been quite good about that but you know he is heavily criticised for his choice of players i mean he left at home the premier league's young player of the year earlier sonny he didn't take him to the world cup who could have given germany the edge that they lacked so much during the world cup and he was really criticized for that next week is to nominate the squad for the upcoming nations league and i'm very very curious to see as to whether he will actually change his style whether he'll actually adopt that i find it very hard to believe that you know he's really going to change that much because there hasn't been so many players stepping down because of his age they probably won't be returning but other than that you know most of the players will probably stay the same so it's very difficult to predict what actual steps he's going to take and philip for example has come out and he's criticized for his mentality saying that his leadership style
4:22 pm
is not tough enough but i personally don't think that your can move change from one day to the next and completely change how he talks to players and how you dress as a team so we'll all have to wait and see what comes next week on tuesday he wants to present these topics to the public and we'll wait and see thank you very much emily doshas from us forces going to be keeping an eye on this story and bring it to us as soon as more details on this. we still every sport on the fastest man in history is currently down under and ready to stake his claim as a professional footballer was seen boat went through his first training session with the australian camp central coast merinos on tuesday and he's currently just on trial but he wants to prove the doubters wrong and earn a contract. for a thirty two year old who has never been paid to kick a ball in his life it's an implausible dream but you saying bolt is no ordinary thirty two year old the jamaican is attempting to make the ultimate crossover from
4:23 pm
a lympics sprint champion to professional football and he started his trial with a strained club the central coast mariners on tuesday and knows he has a lot of hard work ahead of him this is my my first round some really good new chance to train and to. get to a level of the present professional footballers so i don't want to spend some just here to push myself all eyes are focused on the new arrival and the trial is seen by many as a me a p.r. stunt the mariners have gained invaluable worldwide coverage following the trials announcement the odds are certainly against volz winning a professional contract but that hasn't to start and the olympic legend who is determined to silence his doubters for me people are always going to say what i want to say on just like when i was in track and field people say a lot of things about me but i always prove them wrong so it's just a not a moment for me to prove people wrong that mentality should at least give bult a fighting chance a even if the dream turns out to be a short lived one it's
4:24 pm
a win win scenario for both club and player. now one of the me too movement's loudest voices has fallen son into following accusations that's a she sexually assaulted a minor according to documents obtained by the new york times actress turned me to activists chained to i'm going to feed nearly four hundred thousand dollars to settle a sexual assault claim victim active bennett's cames again to assorted him in a california would tell drew in two thousand and thirteen bennett was seventeen at the time which would make him a minor to california. so the scientists commented on the reports but already the allegations are threatening to cost a shadow over the need to move money from a social media disk has been tracking that for luck and welcome. again to was one
4:25 pm
of the first to publicly accuse hollywood producer harvey weinstein of six sort of she's at the receiving end of similar allegations yeah right i mean this is really a shocking turn around for many people including her fellow mitsu activist there trying to make sense of this and what this means for the me too movement and that includes some prominent voices including so why abrams she accused the record producer russell simmons of rape and she says when she saw the news she felt like she'd been sucker punched i was shaking with anger she says of what she did to her victim and frightened about the potential implications her actions have for the me too movement overall actress rose mcgowan she also accused weinstein of assault and she writes here i got to know asia are again so ten months ago our commonality is the shared pain of being assaulted by harvey weinstein my heart is broken and i will continue to work on behalf of victims everywhere and the founder of that me to hashtag this is trying to burke she released
4:26 pm
a series of tweets as well and she said here in part sexual violence is about power and privilege that doesn't change if the purpose. there is your favorite actress and activist or a professor of any gender and we won't shift the culture and as we get serious about shifting these false narratives and go how the critics of the me too movement are reacting to these allegations well some are arguing that this kind of level of hypocrisy should be a big blow to the movement's credibility among those voices is actually the most notorious sexual predator as we've heard harvey weinstein and his lawyer actually released this statement yesterday he wrote this development reveals a stunning level of hypocrisy by asia so what is perhaps most egregious is the timing which suggests that at the very same time our denso was working on her own secret settlement or the alleged sexual abuse of a minor she was positioning herself at the forefront of those condemning mr weinstein you know of course he would be
4:27 pm
a critic here but others you know they try to frame the meta movement often as a movement of women against men that's how the critics often say it in fact that men are given the chance to defend themselves before maybe they're taken from a position of power many of them now want to see argento given that same treatment in terms of what's next for the movement we can actually go back to the founder of the need to hash tag and what she said in part is that more folks should come forward particularly men so that they can have some difficult conversations right. out of a important story thank you very much for bringing it to us he was indeed the news a lot small coming up short you do see it with us if you can i have more news for you in just a minute. she

4:35 pm
many arab countries. in his book friend order for indian strangers or friends karim describes his encounters in the field his meetings with people from the arab world who are living in germany and his own experience in this country. a tale of the first ball and the chance when i was still a foreigner is really exciting for me personally. at a certain point i decided i was no longer a foreigner in germany but i had become a part of german society and felt very comfortable here from then on i didn't want to hear someone say you belong here but instead i decided for myself that it was already the case and that's a good thing. just one of the koreans book is an appeal for greater understanding among cultures and a battle cry against racism. it's a great pleasure for me to have defied
4:36 pm
a bill cosby with me in the studio welcome jeff i think i'm going to gradually see . today we do thank you so much know it's a good question and also congratulations and writing the book which is going to be released in a couple of just selfishly ok first of all tell viewers why did you feel the need to write this book there's a big interest in the arab region of been traveling the arab region the last three or four years and when i come back people always ask me here in germany what's going on in the arab region different topics that interest people which is such as gender equality rights of minorities freedom of speech because today the arab people are also part of germany since what's happened a lot of refugees came to germany and so they are interested because the arabs are today part of every day's life at school university at work so people want to know what background do these people have and that's why i decided to write despite that i have now in my hand and the one thing when i was now watching the report it was a very special moment because me myself i came sixteen years ago to germany and now
4:37 pm
to have this book released in german it's a special moment and it's a great feeling let me go feels for us all to have a special moment and so much i love the title feel book you know how difficult is it to turn from a stranger to a friend. according to my personal experience it's there's a lot of struggle struggles challenges but it's about a decision you take and that's what i did when i write i arrived here in germany one day i was. a place where you get your. name you will know i forget it what's an intern and permit the permit to legs it to live here and so i felt like why are the people dealing with me in such a way so i went home and i opened and research an internet what are my rights and what are my responsibilities here in germany and it was a turning point for me to say i'm part of germany i'm part of the society i know my rights i know my responsibilities i'm not going to wait for anyone to tell me if
4:38 pm
i'm part of the society or not so i was from an outlander which is what you say one german a foreigner a stranger suddenly two people out of the society from a stranger to a friend and being friend of values that's also part of germany which is gender equality tolerance acceptance knowing each other living together having a dialogue with each other and that's what's for me a friend so i became a friend of this country and i really feel good but i have to also mention there are big struggles and challenges for migrants in this country it's not like everything is going on well and that's also mentioned in the in the in the book that i wrote yeah in fact you know you yourself a symbol to struggle. although you on a german and now and when you go out and you've been covering junior reporting of some fall right. demonstrations you were treated in a very hostile manner yes that's happening when you when you report here about right extremists but also a new report about islamist extremists from the religious conservatives that you
4:39 pm
also have both sides and i think both sides are enemies of a free. free society of a tolerant society so we as journalists or me i keep on reporting about them and continuing on not letting to say i'm going to stop because they don't want to because it's my right. and again we know we go back when i came here in germany i know what are my rights and responsibilities and one of my rights as a journalist is to report free wherever i am and that's why i keep on doing this and i write this also in this book so that people know what journalists go through here and also in the arab countries thank you kind of struggle to once you have a similar with the arabic word that's the aerial view our region and islam is the lesson would you live and work when you are with a jealous was would describe you've taken to me as you. chose and yes yes. but. what have you learned what is that key message that you've learnt in this journey
4:40 pm
to messages don't wait for anyone to tell you who you are the wait for anyone to tell you where you belong don't wait for anyone to tell you who you can be just do it be part of the society it's an opportunity to live here it's an opportunity to to work to study and they are a minority group who are racist just don't let them influence your daily life go for it believe in yourself the majority are friends and the majority are very welcoming so just do it so you'll all get of messages they strong because you diffused to be a victim. kind of negative feelings that you can pound you said three also an identity as neutral as your identity and that's that's important because you have the whole identity crisis especially when migrants are living in germany who i am today do i belong to germany or do i belong to the place where my parents came from and what what's my culture was the german culture and i think if you reflect and
4:41 pm
try in every day's life to observe and see what's happening and take the time for yourself to define yourself then you can do it and what counts is you can be who you want to be and i think that's the most important thing to be who you want to be because again it's your right. and it's your freedom to be who you want to be and draw it and freedom are two very important words that influence your life when you know what's the meaning of them wherever you are so this a very powerful message i'm saying proud if you're out of the cream so much and congratulations again on your need to be released in about a couple of so excited. looking forward i would also say to all the muslims all over the word. yes yes evil but a kid mubarak to us thank you very much. let's shift gears and the most this is
