goals galore coming up with midweek match ups in the bundesliga highflying sides braman and berlin face the facing off on tuesday highlights of that game and much more coming up. with. i'm brian thomas thanks for being with us and welcome it has being called a political thunderbolt on the ackles parliamentary party as the five the wishes of the chancellor by voting to oust her longstanding ally folk are counted as its leader now this came as a complete surprise posed to the chancellor and the political establishment here in germany michael's opponents believe it could mean her time as chancellor is coming to an end. only one hundred and twelve votes for a close ally. and leader of the party's parliamentary bloc for thirteen years words
as one hundred twenty five votes for his opponent is i think alice a rather low profile m.p. known for his budgetary expertise he's now the new leader of the cd un sees you group in parliament an unexpected outcome and also a defeat for the german chancellor playing calls himself trying to downplay the significance of the vote. looking forward to working with. as has just been explained there's no daylight between us it will be a close and trusting cooperation just as i've had with her in recent years. before the vote had urged the conservative m.p.'s to support counter her candidate was also backed by leaders of the conservatives but very insistent party this see is you but to no avail the majority wanted to change afterwards the newly elected leader stressed that he didn't see the result as a vote against anglo american but the german chancellor acknowledged the outcome is
a defeat. this is democracy and that means sometimes you lose a vote there's nothing to gloss over but i want the parliamentary group of the c.d.u. and sees you to be successful and therefore i will support wherever possible. merkel lost one of her closest confidence calda had been at the top of the parliamentary party of the conservatives since i'm glad america became german chancellor in two thousand and five all opposition parties declared kalidas defeat a clear sign that merkel's time as chancellor is coming to an end does this shows that mrs merkel can no longer rely on the support of her own group so i recommend that this is mark a vote of confidence that. we call on the government to finally come to terms and to be a government again and not a divided bunch. for the m.p.'s of a conservative party this is an unknown situation until now and always have the
support of the majority but not for sure anymore. so is the clock ticking for all america let's talk about that with political correspondent simon young good morning simon germany's biggest selling delhi newspaper build site on the saying this morning that asking rather whether on a macro can still govern can she without the support of her own party well there's no doubt this is easy a huge blow to angela medical's leadership focus was a man who stood at her side since the beginning of chance of the ship and really boasted it we often refer to his role as chief whip that is to say sort of her in force in parliament the man responsible for making sure that her side at least voted the right way either by persuasion or occasionally by sort of gentle application of the thumbscrews and now he's been moved to saw it that we can see
clearly can she still govern yes for now i think is the arms of the new man has said that he's just as ready to work with her closely as he's pretty says the days but clearly she going forward she's weakened and she faces a conference of her own cd policy in december now off to yesterday's vote it looks rather less likely than it did before that she will be reelected as policy leader. difficult times regular matt simon this administration has been moving from one crisis to another we just saw one solved yesterday little a couple days ago what's behind this crisis dynamic i think the real problem of this government is that it contains two or three parties who are worried that they are losing time. with voter base and in fact probably have lost touch with much of it you've got the very and conservatives of the c.s.u.
. of course faced a very important regional election in just a couple of weeks' time we've seen their lead a horse they hope again and again rattling the cage and trying to voters to the idea that he's an alternative voice particularly on the migration issue so he threatens the government from that side the social democrats for their part emerged from a very bad election result at the general election last year they effectively only join this government to try and you know repair the damage and many within the social democrat party are looking for their opportunity to to put a new offering to the voters so you've got stresses and strains fault lines within the government and many people think that it won't go to the full term for that very reason and those cracks just widen didn't they after of after this vote simon

national security adviser john bolton has issued a stark new warning to iran he said tehran would have quote hell to pay if it threatened the u.s. or its allies these comments came just hours after president trump attacked arounds leaders at the u.n. general assembly the president accused the country of sowing death and destruction run sponsored by accusing the president of violating the rules of international law . after arriving at the plenary hole late in keeping everyone waiting president trump launched into his address he hailed what he called extraordinary progress made since his first speech at the u.n. general assembly one year ago a statement that was met with barely stifled laughter across the room richard in less than two years my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country. america soldier.
didn't expect that reaction would virtually. trump continued undaunted a recurring theme throughout his address was america's rejection of globalization the united states will not tell you how to work or worship we only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return. he also warned other nations against embrace in global ism and singled out germany for criticism saying the country will become totally dependent on russian energy if it does not change course there was praise for north korea in his speech last year trump derided north korean leader kim jong un as a little rocket man this year he thanks the communist dictator for his steps
towards denuclearization trump reserved his harshest criticism for iran calling it a brutal and corrupt dictatorship iran's leaders he said was sowing chaos death and destruction across the region we ask all nations to isolate iran's regime. as long as its aggression continues. and we ask all nations to support the rands people as they struggle to reclaim. their religious and righteous destiny. later iran's president has done rouhani used his speech to push back against the u.s. accusing donald trump of trying to topple his government through hanis that the new u.s. sanctions amount to economic terrorism and violent that iran would not be bound by them president trumps attack on iran was not unexpected last year his maiden speech
at the un general assembly shocked many world leaders this year there were frowns of disapproval and at the end plights applause. ok let's get some analysis now on the speech with tyson barker's u.s. affairs analyst with the aspen institute here in berlin good morning tyson morning you know it was an incredible speech we were analyzing it last night talking about it before this interview with the president wants to isolate iran that was at the core of this speech do you see europe ignoring that and moving as it plans to do to work with china and russia to dodge the u.s. sanctions on iran i mean that's definitely the attempt that we're seeing here is to create a firewall for to preserve this agreement the iran nuclear agreement the j c p a way the question is whether or not it can be successful you know the europeans really taking the lead here fredricka mogul ready to create this special purpose vehicle which is to inoculate buyers of iranian oil those who have put foreign
direct investment into iran so they're not having to use the dollar and basically expose themself to u.s. sanctions now the question really is will that work the way that the sections are structured and going to be implemented it looks like that that might not work because any company having business in the united states would still be subject to sanctions no matter what the avenue of flow is into iraq even if they don't use the swift system for traveling funds and v.w. for example is already pulled out of iran washington has responded with disappointment to the e.u. announcement by rainy meanwhile the u.s. has issued new warnings to iran let's listen in now to trump's national security advisor john bull on that issue if you cross our allies or our partners you harm our citizens if you continue to lie cheat and deceive yes there will indeed be held. hell to pay does that apply to europe tyson what
are america's options with europe should it work with china and russia on dodging the sanctions i mean the biggest cudgel that the united states has its twenty trillion dollar economy not having access to that twenty trillion dollar economy is a real threat for for european companies companies russian companies etc if you look at the work that's being done by the u.s. ambassador to germany for example a bolton protege richard richard grinnell who has said you know each company that has come out and said we're pulling out of iran b.s.f. for example he has touted on his twitter feed so this is really a sustained campaign to pull european companies out of the orbit to do business in the days ok the question is will it be successful you know at this assembly and at the u.n. the president was working to isolate iran but a lot of ways to look like it was america that was isolated well again you know
there's the president and then there's the u.s. economy i think that if in a vacuum if it was just a political question i think that most people would side on the side of preserving an agreement that the iranians have actually complied with but if it's a question of having access the u.s. market the world still the world's largest market the twenty trillion dollar market a lot of great consumers a lot of very wealthy consumers stable rule of law you know great place to invest and then they're going to have to think twice ok not just iran of course in the speech. the president also talked about the primacy of the nation state over global institutions and their supporters right looked like the president was laying down what sounded like to me the trump doctrine with this is you know sometimes he toggles between or even a year and a half almost two years that we've seen him in office he's toggle between kind of an internationalist stablish mint wing you know the old mcmasters even the pump ailes to some extent the madison who have written things like the national security
strategy the national defense strategy. and then the speeches like he gave in poland like his speech at the u.n. general assembly last year which are much more bad and missed which basically as you said define globalism is a type of ideology that needs to be fought against unelected bureaucrats technocrats who think they know better than the elected the people that elect officials and what he's basically saying is you know we need an international strategy dish counter act that that every country should be making itself great again just like the united states is reclaiming its sovereignty from institutions like you and briefly if you could the plays very well ahead of the midterm elections in the u.s. to his base back home well i mean this is going to be a very domestically focused midterm election i think you know there's a lot of issues right now about the treatment of women there's a lot of issues around the supreme court there are questions about rising prices i think that this will be much more domestically focused than international tyson barker from the aspen institute as ever thanks very much. let's get to some sports now into the business leaders midweek games braman and berlin are teams brimming
with confidence right now both sides made an unbeaten start to the season they faced off in a battle between the leagues over achieve. pals out guy has guided hetta bal into their best ever bullis league starts the brain in a difficult prospect. unbeaten here in the last fifteen games it didn't take too long for home advantage to shine through nearish our hands free kick caused all kinds of problems in the heads of box. martin hannett with a simple finish and a slightly more elaborate celebration. both a goalkeeper and defender went for the ball. neither cos its. summer signings are fired or rowson was hatch's biggest threat going forward but any hopes of finishing the half with a flourish was soon dashed another set piece of the goal for braman. of it with a header. body language said issue all the visitors with
a lot of work to do at half time. they did start the second half with more intent to roast and threw on the left despite the title go he produced a superb finish. the twenty year old was deemed surplus to requirements at manchester city while goals like this maybe pep. letting him go but it would prove to be the high point for heter a needless foul gave braman a chance to restore their two goalies midway through the half. back screws up from the sports. piece of his home and the excuse to weed out that celebration. the penalty completed tonight scoring three one the final score. his side keep their own beats and run. his lose there is fortress braman doing the job again. also in the
bonus leg or shall car travel to freiburg desperate to end their nightmare start to the season the team of lost all their games thus far and on top of that they have historically found it difficult to beat five or. shaker in freiburg a match that at least on paper had to gray cloud royal blues as firm favorites get coached him and go today changed six of his starting eleven in this must win game. five minutes into the match and freiburg alexander's fall of saved his efforts twice only to be beaten at the third attempt shocker went crazy celebrating their first lead of the whole season but they soon discovered that the referee had ruled the goal out and the eventual score a said it was offside before he found the net then the industrious you have set up. as cheika kept pushing and shortly before half time it was done you know
cally jury's turn to hit the upright. the break about seven minutes into the second half freiburg to delete when florian need election top home and easy rebound a horrible moment for shark a keeper right fairmount christiane going to his original shot straight into need elation is part of what knew it stayed the hosts celebrating their first home win of the season shocker meanwhile on able to manage even a draw the freiburg very staid firmly rooted to the bottom of the industry just. in time to talk about mighty byron as byron munich coach nico kovacs has won seven out of seven matches against aus bird his side went up one nil through our and robin in the second half but the reigning champions failed to close the game out as felix kurtz of produced an unconventional finish in the eighty sixth minute that equalized against his former club was his first goal for aus bergen it was enough
to secure them a surprise point. let's get our business with monica now and asia's looking ahead and what is seeing is plenty of challenging times and not only asia we've got breaking news reports are just coming in that to the head of dime lady death sacha will step down next year and we'll have more on that story from our correspondent in frankfurt just a few minutes from now but first the asian development bank said brian mentioned is forecasting a slowdown in growth next year over fears that a global trade conflict could hurt to the economies in the region the lender has also warned to that further interest rate hikes in the united states could disrupt currency markets and lead to bad loans but the lender also said that expanding trade within the region could help make up for lost exports to the united states asia is now home to walls and half of the world's middle class. and when
it comes to profitability germany's d n w often leaves its go. pages in the rearview mirror but now the german luxury carmaker issued a profit warning for the first time in ten the is the end of you said revenues conformists much as ten percent short of its full here forecast the reasons include price was as the market just the streak to emissions tests sales in china are also affected by import tariffs that have pushed up the prices of cars made in the u.s. b.m.w. is not the only troubled automotive company dima and parts supplier continental have also issued profitable a mix. let's stick to b.m.w. for a moment because there seem to me more problems on the domestic front but it's joins us now in frankfurt some kind of showdown i believe between b.m.w. and it's a deal us yes monica behind the shiny high polish glossy world of
show rooms there's a bitter fight going on between the dealers and the carmakers as german newspapers reports. almost ninety percent of dealers may not be selling cars or new parts of buying monday the problem of being a new contract that b.m.w. has sent out to these dealers that they refuse to sign because they say it is cutting into their livelihood it is cutting into their profit margins while b.m.w. is still reaping in profits this is looking investors of course their share is a new thing today after it had a big drop of five percent already yesterday after profit warnings ok paul so if worse comes to worse which is not written in stone just yet and if b.m.w. really has trouble selling cars in germany come monday how much would that take to b.m.w. sales numbers. so b.m.w.
has about six hundred dealerships in the country but five hundred fifty of those don't belong to their company they're independent they're freelance and they make up a level a billion euros worth of revenue over half of that from new cars so that's a significant number especially when b.m.w. has been having trouble selling cars this year it's fallen behind dialer and other competitors and the situation with the dealers runs pretty deep they're worried that the company may be trying to cut them out trying to do more direct sales especially with large companies also for future models b.m.w. is planning to have a lot of features pre-installed that only need to be. activated electronically which means customers wouldn't have to go to a dealer and right now dealers might just feel they have the upper hand to. get
back at the b.m.w. ok well we'll know by monday and the late as you just mentioned dinah and of course that is the big news right now we hear that the c.e.o. is stepping down any surprise that this decision has been long in the making it is now official by jim lehrer but it's been a while if this does been prepared i remember death of such a twenty fifteen at the frankfurt motor show here in frankfurt saying that you know one day he might be replaced by a robot or live jokingly hoping that he might be replaced by a female now that didn't didn't happen for a long time now all in telling us i'm going to have to use that name has been preparing in the company he doesn't have a technical background but as head of development he's been gaining a lot of expertise lately and he's got a big task ahead of him as such has been a very charismatic and successful leader for the company christiane but it's there
