liverpool's are gone secure he will not be facing red star belgrade because of fears of tensions due to his heritage. by brian thomas thanks so much for being with us americans are voting in one of the most crucial midterm elections in decades today some thirty six million americans have already cast their ballots an early voting now that's far more than at the same time in the last midterms says the polls a referendum on his presidency in that it will determine if he's able to keep his agenda on track. early voting has begun for the u.s. midterm elections and early polling suggests it will be a record year for turnout. and it's all because of this man he's divisive and he's energizing for those that love him and for those that don't this
election is widely being seen as a referendum on the man everyone can't look away from if he doesn't say so himself . i mean who ever even heard of mid term there not even know what it is i've had a lot of people say i don't know what that term is but now i'm watching every single minute and i'm going out to vote. but the key is you have to go out to vote because in a sense i am on the ticket you got to go out to. republicans our town seeing a booming economy. and accusing democrats of being weak on migration democrats are inviting caravan after caravan of illegal aliens to pour into our country overwhelming his school yard spittles and your communities five. u.s. networks have withdrawn this trump ad about a mexican migrant convicted of murdering two police offices it originally claimed democrats allowed him into the country and c.n.n.
called it racist. the democrats not so secret weapon former president barack obama has been on the campaign trail taking aim at the president's often abrasive personality. character this country's on the belt who we are is on the ballot. thank you. what kind of. politics we expect is on the ballot how we conduct ourselves in public life is on the ballot how we treat other people is on the belin. there are likely to be swings to both sides across america in deeply conservative texas a surprisingly strong showing for democratic rule seeking election to the senate. just a few weeks ago democrats felt fairly sure of recapturing both the senate and the
house but poll suggests the race is now wide open. while it is completely wide open to talk about that with me in the studio was having regular head of the transatlantic relations program of the german council of foreign relations good morning thanks for being with us winning these midterms are getting far more attention here in europe than midterms in the u.s. usually do what's what's behind that i think it's because we're so puzzled by donald trump isn't how he acts the very disruptive policies the pressure on the allies in europe. the possible damage he does to the political system in the u.s. so we're wondering how he can survive this kind of a different approach in policy his own policies partly erratic partly in a certain way to to. improve the position of america in the world as he says without possibly doing it so it's interesting for us and we wonder where the checks
and balances work whether the political system in america is working and whether he's now getting tighter control and oversight from congress with new majorities possibly ok this vote being called the most important in a generation if not longer by members of both parties let's take a look at at what's at stake. the midterms are first and foremost about congress and they can make or break a president's agenda republican control of both the house of representatives and the senate has made trump's life relatively easy so far but if democrats flip one or even both houses the good times may be over the entire house all four hundred thirty five seats are up for election as they are every two years republicans currently hold two hundred thirty five democrats one hundred ninety three seats that's a lot of distance to the two hundred eighteen majority mark but democrats hope that
the slew of republicans leaving their seats this year along with enough anti trump fury among voters will deliver them to the house so all eyes are on the thirty or so tonsils races that polling data have is too close to call on the senate side republicans rule with the slimmest of majorities fifty one of one hundred seats sounds like good news for democrats but only thirty five seats of those are up for election most twenty six are ones democrats and independents allied with them need to defend that makes victory harder polling data suggest maybe just six seats in all are toss ups as the minority party democrats have been limited in effectively resisting trump but what if they win in both the house and senate they could block his agenda and introduce their own they could investigate the myriad allegations of abuse and misconduct facing trump. in the senate democrats could reject trump appointees up for important positions and they could impeach a long and fraught process that starts in the house and ends in the senate
democrats have history on their side as the president's party usually suffers in the midterms whether that trend stays true won't be clear until ballots are it. has been under constant criticism here in germany from members of. he's since he's taken office since he's been in office over the last two years what a shift in the balance of power in congress towards the democrats improve relations between the united states and germany with that mind. i wouldn't think so we would possibly gain a bit more trust in the checks and balances system in the trust in the in the leading democracy but it's hard to foresee how would react would he if you. would see his own legislative agenda blocked as all of those projects blocked by congress would he then step up the sort of internal civil war that he's starting the inflammatory rhetoric the polarization that he's using to to reach out to his
base because he's what he wants to be reelected in twenty twenty or will he look for like foreign theatres and start wars to the outside which is not so easy he's also a press corps in the words to the outside that is quite a claim i mean he's stepping up the escalation with iran he has. embraced the north korean leader but it's really opened whether this would lead to denuclearization i don't i don't see that. the donald trump is looking for. a failure in his foreign policy he wants to be the strong man he wants to to to be seen as somebody who gets things done and he doesn't want to go into failure so so he might pick his enemies. at that point in time this might also mean for us for you for a for us europeans that he's trying to squeeze out more for the u.s.
in terms of trade relations or in terms of burden sharing in nato and that is a more a more plausible scenario ok so should the democrats take power there is a very real concern in europe the donald trump could become more active on the foreign policy front and that would include dismantling some of the global institutions he's very much opposed to part of. what he calls his anti globalist agenda on trade and nato do you see that as you mention this being a real threat it is a it is a threat but when you look at what the americans do they support nato they spend more money for defense of deterrence. in the un the skeptical about certains of neurons but they're not withdrawing completely so there will be a reshift reshuffling of resources from from the american side and a lot of bad rhetoric but i think on base the europeans have people in america to work with so having reka ahead of the times a lot of relations program of the german council on foreign relations thanks very
much welcome. and here on the w. will have of course extensive coverage of the midterms throughout the day bring you all the results and europe's perspective as well on these elections you can also follow us on twitter for updates s w news while as we've been talking about president trump is using worries about illegal immigration is a key issue to adam ate his conservative base and on the eve of the midterms thousands of central american migrants have been streaming into the mexican capital mexico city there's a lead in the so-called migrant caravan headed to the u.s. border where they intend to seek asylum they say they're trying to escape violence and poverty but trump has rallied his voters against the caravan on the campaign trail calling it an invasion. this stands at this mexico city stadium filled slowly but not with sports fans as usual instead these are migrants
from central america exhausted and hungry. it's been a hard journey sometimes we've had pouring rain then burning sunshine we have children with us they're tired we'll have to wait until they've arrested. they've walked fifteen hundred kilometers so i found. these are among the first to arrive in mexico city. thousands more are expected this week he they receive food and fresh clothing. and play space for children after a few days they'll push on towards the us mexico border. there's one of us is that i'm ok we have to get to show donald trump that we are not afraid of his soldiers. he can send as many as he wants to get a chance remarks haven't discouraged anyone on the move those will fled their homes
are willing to risk everything to start a new life elsewhere because they see no hope in their homeland. but what's really important for us to gather our strength and keep going. can have a better life so they can study back home we can't send them to school we don't even have the money to buy new shoes. but there's a but. so it's onward with the old shoes the migrants hope that whatever they wearing on the fate will be enough to get them to a better life. time for a look at some of the other stories making the news today. in peru a truck crashed head on into a passenger bus monday local media reporting at least eighteen people are dead among them twelve women and a child the bus been traveling along highway. near lake titicaca. the files in the tourist drug lord shop oh is actually in joaquin guzman the set to begin in new york under tight security he's accused of leading

trust harrington from our sports desk is here to talk about that chris let's start with last year's runners up there traveling to liverpool but they're not taking a very key player with them what's happening that's right brian twenty six year old jared on she kiri he was born in kosovo ethnically albanian now in the late ninety's kosovo fought a war of independence against serbian forces the serbian government still refuses to recognize kosovo's independence security made headlines he plays for switzerland and not albania in the world cup when he scored a game winner against serbia he made a pose of the albanian flag which is a hand gesture and in this current there it is right there you see and that was a viral moment actually and that potentially could be in issue a distraction you know because he's going to the capital of servia belgrade you know tonight the team is the head coach you're good close up touched on the at the press conference yesterday on why she carrie has been left behind let's take
a listen that's what you have to play football and. we want to focus on that. because the situation people all know better. how the situation is we decided not to bring sharkey said if he's old to play a lot of games for us but not tomorrow that's all. ok tactical and strategic but it was no known so there's ok now there's still a lot to play for in this group just how close is it at the halfway mark wright will group c. is as tight as cusick christmas time because liverpool they leave the group six points p.s.g. is right behind them with five scuse me napoli is right behind them with a five p.s.g. has four points napoli face at p.s.g. tonight and you have p.s.g. have have haven't been living up to their potential in the champions league pits as of late they have lots of talent you know interestingly enough napoli's head coach carlo answer lottie spoke highly of p.s.g.
because he had a coaching tenure there he said they could potentially win the silverware if they do live up to potential p.s.g. they are on the road at napoli tonight but they do have their goalkeeper gigi buffon back between the posts so they are looking good in that situation he no. interest in lee enough they're going to have to either draw and wait to see a liverpool does of belgrade or just flat out when you know i expect napoli to not try to contain as much and i do expect. company to fire on all cylinders and i expect to win for p.s.g. ok let's talk about a top german team but your leaders dortmund their own actions and i let it go madrid is a team they're facing off against once that they're looking like well right now dortmund is on fire you know there is no debating that they top the group domestically here in germany and right now they have yet to concede a goal in the champions league you know all of their new pieces are jelling well together axel vit sol and company look very good moving forward but to keep it all
honest and aboveboard this will be a litmus test because they are playing in madrid electical madrid you know didn't really show up last time out according to their side you know they will stick to the script and play what they've been playing but they do recognize that dog is a force to be reckoned with right now and they as of right now therefore they look like they can you know walk away with a double you know this year they look like they. with the champions league and the bundesliga ok but let it go will have the home advantage because they will have the home advantage but they are wounded a little bit at the moment they have a few players out they have diego godinez out and diego is out is well going to wait and see if the world cup champion and told greece will show up in you know dazzle the home side but i'm pulling for development all right well so that i want to go into the server thanks very much. some tennis now rafael nadal says he will not play this season anymore after undergoing ankle surgery the spaniard was
