1:35 am
gets into it so deeply. that he's not a tourist not a visitor not someone who just drops in. he remains in the situation for weeks and months. and he knows the people and that's why he's earned the right to tell their story. condemned to death. in the film salgado says that at some point he couldn't stand witnessing the pain of others anymore his soul became sick. in an attempt to heal in 2004 or so god started the genesis project he spent 8 years travelling around the world photographing landscapes indigenous peoples and wildlife he focused not on suffering but on learning from nature. my hope is that. we just saw we had this incredible information that will have to be this incredible conscious waters off they call

1:41 am
leader the winner will be announced in late july after a nationwide ballot of party members. according to the way his polls most americans don't like him and a majority of americans would not vote for him if the presidential election were held today now those are facts donald trump has declared fake tonight the u.s. president launching his reelection campaign can he convince voters to give him 4 more years to make america great again i'm bored golf in berlin this is the day. in the history of the time we used to for president trump because he's fulfilled everything that he promised to do.
1:42 am
to rally television you still feel good and. you're trying. to and. it's going to happen because the media and the democrats are the bunch of fools. also coming up tonight facebook has your data now we're going to look inside your wallet to. certainly trust is very important and i think facebook given that it's one of the largest companies in the world i think will have the trust of most of the world's population whether they deserve that trust or not is another question.
1:43 am
to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and all around the world welcome but we begin the day with the u.s. president rallying and requesting voters to give him 4 more years tonight in orlando florida president officially launching his reelection campaign trump in his element surrounded by thousands of adoring fans in a sea of red and white magic camps sheltering make america great again we have complete coverage tonight of his official reelection launch we want to start in orlando where my colleague alexander phenomena joins me good evening good afternoon to you alexandra trons team is calling tonight's relaunch the mother of all rallies is that what it's going to look and feel like what do you think. well that is certainly a big coup rally at baek party we have a stage she alive music was playing until
1:44 am
a while ago many people we talked to told us that they arrived yesterday to make sure they are getting a seat or to stand in that 1st row to see the president president at his family to be close to them because they think that this is an historic occasion and historic moment for him to launch to kick off his reelection campaign so definitely at be cruelty here today and alexander i mentioned at the start of the program that the latest polling numbers they certainly they don't appear to be entranced favor i mean most americans say that they would not vote for him today. well that's right he's not doing well according to latest polls and that is quite striking because he's doing well despite a growing economy and despite low unemployment you would expect him
1:45 am
to do well in polls but according to in town polls he's come pain he lies behind top democratic contenders in key states in states such as. wisconsin or michigan and that means just relying on the he's core supporters might be not enough to. victory in november next year but when you talk to people here and there are. very optimistic that the president is going to be reelected let's have a listen really we are super proud there are many that love him in florida florida love struggle and we are proud to have him as the leader of this nation in this outfit it's important for me to bring attention to a basically an election issue that i support i support barriers on america's southern border primarily to keep illegal narcotics and human trafficking out what
1:46 am
he's done for her condominium her poignant her military eliminating regulations for business he said he's done more for this country than any president in the last 50 years. i'm sure i would dread the day he's out of office president trump my sister sacristan more into years any president has done in 15 years and the. president for the common man it really is hearing compassion. for people of all levels of income. so people here told us that they are very happy when president trump and they also told us that don't they don't believe in polls because trump supports us don't talk to pollsters that could be seen in 2016 they told us that there is a secret though it's also in 2020 so they're convinced he's going to be reelected
1:47 am
and alexander you know that they say that but we can also hear in the people that you spoke with how much of a polarizing president is unlike any that the u.s. has seen in recent memory that has worked for him so far do you expect him to pile on more polarizing rhetoric in this reelection campaign moving forward. yes indeed i expect him to do so because as you said it has worked well for him in the past and also he uses it do in his presidency to distract the public attention from topics or issues that he doesn't like like for example not very nice polls polls that are not in favor of him so we can expect him here to talk about all the rising issues to go after he's a democratic contenders just maybe to distract the public attention from. us
1:48 am
polls and head of this relaunch alexandra the president is threatening to deport millions of undocumented migrants beginning next week talk to me about the timing of this threat and and how realistic is it. so i would say that of course he talked about it because of reelection campaign campaign to be kicked out here in orlando he knows very well that he's supporters that a many republican voters they told us here that state think that this is a very important issue immigration and border security however i don't think that what he promised his supporters is very realistic to deport so many undocumented migrants and next week. despite the recent polls that we've been talking about the
1:49 am
fact remains that an incumbent president always enters the campaign with an advantage over his or her rivals does that apply more or less to donald trump in your opinion. i think it applies to him because you know he doesn't have to try to convince his party it's to be their next nomination the party is behind him and that's of course very different that it looks like in 26 seeing 16 so he has the support of his party and he has enough time to compare and to raise enough money to make sure that he reelection campaign is going to work so far he raised 30 $1000000.00 according to his reelection campaign and that's more that any of the democratic contender has done so far is true i mean
1:50 am
the numbers mean a lot and when you look at the democrats we're talking about what more than 20 candidates right now one of those eventually will end up being the candidate for their party let's talk about u.s. allies all xandra specially here in europe they are watching what is taking place today in orlando should they be worried. well we know that the you ass allies in europe are not very happy with the course of you ask foreign policy and also ordinary citizens. are not happy in the europe in many countries for in particular in germany are not very happy with the current state of the transplanting relationship however we have to say that many experts say that even if donald trump is not going to be reelected
1:51 am
that never the last of the future of the transatlantic relationship be can be that it has change during his threat is an end and that the trust that always pin these transatlantic relationship relationship may be gone for good. or for a moment there in orlando florida where the u.s. president is kicking off his 2020 reelection campaigns this campaign season yet again alexander as always thank you. well as we just heard there is no indication that donald trump will depart from the path of polarizing politics since he runs for a 2nd term my next guest tonight says that is dangerous and even an existential threat to us democracy in his book divided politics divided nation hyper conflict in the trump darrell west describes how toxic politics have become in the united
1:52 am
states and he warns that a nation whose citizens can no longer talk politics with belt fighting is a nation with little hope for the future. i'm happy to welcome darrell west to the day dale joins me tonight from our washington bureau darrell it's good to have you on the show as i was reading your book there was one passage that caught my eye and i want to bring it up for our viewers to see as well you write through all these family university and media conversations it was clear that dangerous forces were being unleashed in american politics the country was becoming polarized and it was becoming harder and harder to have reasoned discussions of national events people were dealt in their adversaries in feeling they were not trust worthy now that sounds there what a perfect description of u.s.
1:53 am
politics today but you were describing the situation earlier in this injury before barack obama was elected if it was bad then i mean i guess it's you know the world's watching the u.s. it has to be really bad now it is i mean certainly the polarization that we're seeing now did not start with donald trump but trump has made it a lot worse he has made our politics more toxic i mean tonight i expect him to throw a lot of red meat at his conservative supporters talk about how immigrants are bad for america trying to stealing our jobs i mean he has debased a lot of the civil discourse around politics and just introduced a lot of negativity so he's made it much more difficult for americans to talk about politics and he's kicking off his relation campaign today how do you see his chances for being reelected we know that the polls are not in his favor at the moment. the polls are not looking good for donald trump right now but we do have
1:54 am
to keep in mind that america has a 3.6 percent national unemployment rate if for anyone else other than donald trump we would be talking about an easy reelection but trump's problem is that 60 percent of americans don't like him and it's hard for people to vote for someone they don't like so what i expect trump to do is to try and raise the negatives of whoever his democratic opponent becomes because he needs to end up this race in next november with people disliking the democratic nominee as much as himself in order for him to have a shot at winning in your book you describe how politics in the us since the reagan era i mean despite zig zagging from the likes of clinton to bush to obama to me despite all of these extremes politics really have steadily become more divisive and polarized many would like to see being if not the christian at least the
1:55 am
beginning of the end of that trend is that how you see it are we seeing the light at the end of the tongue. i think we are seeing some light at the end of the tunnel in the sense that many americans are fed up with trump they don't like his policies they don't like his divisive rhetoric the irony is just as barack obama made donald trump possible trump make possible the election of america's most progressive candidate in the sense that american politics often has flipped back and forth between extremes and so i think voters are going to be looking for the anti donald trump someone who is nicer probably much more liberal and somebody who will at least try and bring the country back together and when you say the donald trump i do not immediately think of joe biden as the in tied down old trump are you in my
1:56 am
reading you correctly here are you saying that one of the other democratic candidates is going to be the one to take the u.s. out of the air. i mean right now biden is looking like he is the strongest democratic nominee but if you go back to past presidential elections the person who is ahead a year before the race often is not the person who becomes the nominee so i do believe the 2020 election is going to be a change election and i think that's going to be challenging for joe biden just because he's been on the political scene for 40 years has a very long record and somebody who is a career politician like that is going to be hard to portray himself as a candidate of change and so i'm still looking at some of these other candidates elizabeth warren camilla harris of california mayor pete from south bend indiana like those are the next generation of politicians and so i think ultimately voters
1:57 am
are going to want someone who is not a career politician and is very different from donald trump today i heard one analyst say that the winning democratic ticket in 2020 would be joe biden as president and a woman of color as his vice presidential running mate it's what do you say to that . that certainly could be a winning formula in the sense that it would basically signal that america is changing and biden would be preparing the way for the next generation of leaders but i still think it's a risk for america to go with biden just because trump loves to campaign against career politicians i mean that was really the secret of his victory over hillary clinton he basically said she's been in politics for decades she's got all these deals she's dishonest and you cannot trust her and my concern is he will run exactly the same type of campaign against joe biden and so i think you know it's
1:58 am
a long ways before the election next week we'll have debates among the leading a democrat so that will start to provide some texture to this democratic field yet it is a long way to november of 2020 and before we run out of time i want to answer you how culpable do you think we in the media are. being obsessed with the polling numbers i mean we especially in the u.s. but also all over the world we tend to treat this the campaigns as a horse race we're really not doing any good for the public good with that are we do you think we're actually helping this hyper divisiveness continue. well certainly all of us pay attention to the polls and it's natural especially people want to beat trump they want to see how he's a fairing against a different candidates but we do have to recognize that polls change very rapidly and it's so early in the race right now they're really capturing the fact that joe
1:59 am
biden as well now having high name identification is one of the reasons why he's doing well in the polls but certainly there i think ultimately voters are going to focus a lot more on the substance because they can see there's going to be a huge difference between whoever the democratic candidate is and donald trump the policies are going to be different the visions of the future are going to be different the way the people talk about politics is going to be very different writes darrell west author of divided politics divided nation and director of governance at the brookings institution gera we appreciate you taking the time to talk with us tonight and we appreciate your insights thank you. thank you. for today the united states announced that it is sending $1000.00 extra troops to the gulf as tensions with iran escalate washington released new images today
2:00 am
claiming to prove that iran was behind the bombing of 2 tankers in the gulf of oman last week iran has rejected those allegations these are the new images that the u.s. says proves iran was behind the attacks on 2 oil tankers last thursday in the gulf of oman on if the u.s. claims an unexploded mine was being removed from one of the tankers to hide evidence iran denies any involvement the u.s. says that its new deployment includes security forces and troops for additional surveillance and intelligence gathering in the region imagine observers believe this escalation is aimed at deterring iran and calming allies worried that transit through key shipping lanes could be in jeopardy. iran has announced it will soon breach limits on how much enriching uranium it can stockpile under the international nuclear deal it's signed in 2015 it also says it will be able to make weapons grade uranium last year u.s. president donald trump pulled the u.s.
2:01 am
out of the deal and reimposed economic sanctions on iran and even though the americans withdrew from the deal they still want iran to comply with the restrictions. we have made it very clear that this president came into office and since the secretary came here that we will not tolerate iran and turning a nuclear weapon full stop the european union and the un have called for caution regarding actions based on the attack on the 2 oil tankers implementation of the. the world's largest social network has unveiled the digital coin that it plans to roll out next year the project is called libra now over a dozen global firms will invest in and govern the currency firms that you are well aware of. master card and vodafone and this group will supposedly prevent facebook from being able to control the currency that's an important aspect
2:02 am
of the coin that will be pegged to a basket of global currencies such as the u.s. dollar the euro and the british pound is shielded from fluctuations that have hit bitcoin for example so will it catch on facebook is betting on its 2400000000 you're going to see that number there 1000000000 monthly users to make it easy to forge a new marketplace for streamline purchases and exchanges well here's what facebook c.e.o. mark zuckerberg had to say earlier today about the project i believe that it should be as easy to send money to someone as it is to send a photo. so we're already testing this and india with about a 1000000 people it's been used a lot in the feedback so far is great and we're already working on rolling this out in a number of other countries later this year all right that was mark zuckerberg speaking
2:03 am
there i'm joined tonight by josh constant he's editor at large at tech crunch that's an online publisher focusing on the tech industry he joins me tonight from san francisco josh it's good to have you on the show so put this into perspective for our viewers around the world is this the beginning of a of a new age in crypto currency. this is definitely a new era for crypto the previous era was dominated by these very nerdy currency is that were mostly good for speculation you might try to buy low and hope people buy after use the price skyrockets and you could make a fortune but basement scripta currency is totally different it's not designed speculation and prices it's supposed to change at all instead is designed to let you pay for things in online shops or even in person or pay back friends with very low fees skipping those 4 percent transaction fees you often get with credit cards
2:04 am
now we heard that this is supposed to be a really big boom for people who maybe would not have access to having normal banking account people in the developing world. i've heard that a lot of jargon today about on and off ramps into a new. money ecosystem for example isn't there a huge gulf that still exists between silicon valley and sub-saharan africa when we're talking about crypto currency. absolutely most people think of crypto currency is a way for people in the west to get rich but in reality there's a huge potential for them to assist the unbanked evil of which there are about 1700000000 around the world because if you don't have a bank account it's very tough to get credit it's to if you get robbed you might not have anything left to your name whereas if you have a bank account it means you could then take out money it's of pay your bills or
2:05 am
what have you the idea is with facebook's libor crypto currency anyone even without a bank can get this online currency account and they can deposit money that they have into this account so even if they're robbed in person they wouldn't lose everything and that would be the basis of a digital identity system which could help to administer aid for non-profits or assist with citizenship and taxes and migrant refugee problems and just let me just ask you this before we run out of time we're just getting the report right now that a senior u.s. lawmaker a member of congress wants a hearing to be held on facebook's move into crypto currency is that something that facebook should see as a positive or is that a negative. that's definitely a negative but facebook has been trying to work with regulators and it said up front we're open to discussion we're not trying to replace sovereign currency is
2:06 am
we're not trying to just ruin the existing banking system and we're not going to control this claim we're going to be sharing control of these all these other people with that said with all of its history of privacy problems and concerns about anti-competitive behavior that could lead to antitrust regulation a lot of politicians still might be worried that baseball getting into a new business especially something as important as the financial sector could give it even more power over our lives at a time when everyone wants it to have less yeah that's a very good point to make there josh constant editor at large at tech crunch joining us tonight from san francisco josh we appreciate your insights thank you. my pleasure all right the day is almost over but the conversation continues online you'll find us on twitter you there at the news you can follow me at brant golf t.v. don't forget to use the hash tag a day every member whatever happens between now and then tomorrow is another day we'll see you then every book.

2:10 am
report by the world biodiversity council up to 1000000 plant and animal species are at risk of extinction the main causes are habitat loss environmental pollution and as well as the illegal wildlife trade. every year millions of live wild animals are shipped and flown across the world growing number being sold online some are in demand as exotic pets others are sold for their body parts such as ivory for souvenirs. snakeskin for the fashion industry. or fins and scales for use in traditional medicine. the trade in protected species is a legal but very lucrative every year the business turns over an estimated $20000000000.00 organize along mafia like lines wildlife crime has grown into one of the world's biggest alyssa trades after narcotics arm sales and human

trafficking. one shy creature is particularly valuable on the market the pangolin the only model with scales that's what makes this so valuable even though it scales are made of keratin just like fingernails or hair. one kilo pangolin scales is worth a $1000.00 on the black market. in asia especially in china and vietnam pangolin scales are used in traditional medicine the animals meat is also a sought after delicacy. pangolin is the most trafficked mammal in the world even though sales of all these things are globally banned by the convention on international trade in endangered species or sites. it regulates global trade in more than $36000.00 animal and plant species including many threatened by extinction like the bangle. new
2:12 am
animals are regularly added to the list and the trade in already protected species is further restricted or prohibited. for several years there have been many applications to protect species that are in demand as exotic pets but the fashions keep changing. reptiles have always been highly popular such as pythons from malaysia. is from kenya and lizards from mexico. buyers in the u.s. and the european union are the biggest purchasers of live reptiles many of the traded animals die on rouge or through improper handling by their owners tackling this predatory business is a tough undertaking online trade is particularly difficult to control. at the same time government bans on the trade of a domestic species often don't achieve much once the animal is smuggled out of the
2:13 am
country it can be sold elsewhere if there is no international ban. and only a few countries have an import ban on wild animals. ultimately it all comes down to the buyers if demand falls then the business will no longer be worthwhile. the international fund for animal welfare conducted research into wildlife cybercrime in germany france britain and russia over a period of 6 weeks they found nearly $12000.00 protected wildlife specimens for sale including their body parts all worth around full 1000000 u.s. dollars. germany was the main market for them 4 times a year the city of hama hosts the reptile fair when many such sales take place.
2:14 am
getting ready for europe's largest reptile trade. an event where journalists are not welcome. i think realistically they're not going to be more. likely to but the research that led us here. started at a computer. the illegal wildlife trade is the world's 4th largest criminal industry and experts say it flourishes online. in germany most wildlife offered online is a live animal particularly reptiles some are protected under international law because their populations are threatened how easy is that for people like me who can tell a title from a top. to find animals for sale. for most adults we saw pointed to
2:15 am
a reptile trade called a terrorist occur in the small german city of the takes place 4 times a year. and here we met a biologist from animal rights organization pro wildlife to talk us through what we'd found online. many species we saw for sale are protected under international law or a native to countries where the export is bad and one purchased a furious by a complain that the reptiles he had ordered didn't arrive as expected. this crocodiles weren't sent in any kind of appropriate container but just in the box without any protection. and they were dead by the time they arrived. here you can see that animals weren't treated like animals but were treated merely as goods. and while wildlife trade online is often legal cases like this show the dark side of these poorly regulated market.
2:16 am
on line trade is a big problem a huge range of sleaziness can be made available to everyone so. you know anyone can post an ad. and unbelievable range of species are on offer and anyone can buy them sight unseen. very often the animals are sent by post or bought at reptile an animal trade fairs. even before the terrorist the khazar. animals are already changing. it's a more diverse crowd than the clientele i'd seen on large families with children people chatting and drinking beer teenagers. but inside it's
2:17 am
animals but crap you're right. many reptiles were visibly distressed scratching against the sides of their containers and trying to escape. some were kept in small empty boxes even though the terrorist the guidelines require animal boxes to contain hiding places. the price tags reached into the thousands of ury's . where is this from. asia they come from sri lanka. species like this critically endangered peacock truncheon that were mostly described as captive bred not wild imports but verifying this is tricky but the bae is under thirty's once an animal has arrived in the e.u. it can be legally trade even if it was smuggled out of its home country. in germany lawmakers have simply failed to protect animals that are protected in
2:18 am
their home countries where. the law here doesn't recognize that these animals are protected abroad and doesn't ban people from trading them. some animals brought to the terrorists to cut a traded away from the eyes of officials to terrorist to organize it did not respond to a request. the comment they guidelines require traders comply with german law but with deals taking place in car parts and under table policing this is another matter. after the fair we showed off footage to pro wildlife who identified protected species for sale and told us a legal gray zone that's an regulated animal trade thrive. on how to conduct a thorough very long because. we've noticed in the past that shortly before the trade fair and harm the number of online ads increases dramatically and very often
2:19 am
the parties agree that that's where the trade will take place. most audits we saw a leading to the terrorists were inclosed facebook groups facebook refused multiple requests to comment but did delete some groups after we contacted them with screenshots of suspicious animals. many more groups are still locked in. their heads as well or is that literally were. and tech companies face challenges policing the wildlife trade. him do much money based struggles to keep sales of ivory out of its market but animal welfare groups told us they haven't found live animals that. you know it's not like in a social network where you have closed user groups that you can enter by invitation only and that's not happening on e bay so anyone can check any time any listing that is listed on the right and that

is for bad actors of course like a big risk i was surprised by how little weight domestic laws carry internationally and how that means protected animals slipped through legal cracks what was most surprising was how easy a beginner can find animals online. and pick them up without supervision. this week in global ideas we head to the peruvian jungle. to tania boot travels to eat to meet conservationists working to protect threatened species from extinction. the ketosis is inaccessible by road you can only get there by plane or boat the peruvian city with 400000 inhabitants is tucked away in the middle of the amazonian rain forest the people of the rain
2:21 am
forest are only allowed to hunt for themselves and their families in peru commercial wildlife hunting is banned and yet it's possible to buy all sorts of endangered wildlife live or freshly cooked at the famous billette market. i recently talked to a former wildlife trade and i said well at least there's less illegal trade of bush meat and she said we just don't let the public figure these days when someone says they want something specific then he makes sure to hide it away in his home. has lived in the ketones for 30 years she runs a refuge for threatened species at the market in the end she buys fruit and vegetables for animals the jungle surrounding it ketones has been over hunted these days the wild animals killed by poachers are very young. thank you that is a tiny cayman on the table and you can see how small it is dead of course probably
2:22 am
2 or 3 months old it's terrible but people buy something like that. the animals are often killed before they've had a chance to reproduce species are dying out. because this is gosling i don't even know what sort of me today is. such a vaca that's even worse that's tapir which is threatened with extinction and. as to being very young because tapir grow to quite a science they can weigh up to 300 kilos but the problem is they don't begin to reproduce until 6 or 7. she's in a hurry the animals are waiting for feeding time. and this is the western port every key toes. has to cross the rio niger part of a culture. founded 24 years ago as a butterfly sanctuary her refuge is in the middle of the jungle today because being too was an animal orphanage is also home to threaten birds and mammals. they live
2:23 am
here in conditions that are species appropriate. this jaguars lived here since it was a cop when the legal traders simply threw it away. it was in a wooden crate tied with barbed wire and it was thrown into the water in the harbor here by someone who was trading illegally with indigenous people and selling all sorts of animals but he didn't sell the jaguar in it couldn't even stand on its feet and he will. a jaguar requires a diet made of up to 7 percent red meat for it suffers kidney damage. from january are endangered because they're losing their habitat both the male and the female of the species needs 50 square kilometers to itself to find what it needs to feed on but nowadays there are too many streets and pipelines and they don't want to cross them. unstick lots of those most at the market in by then
2:24 am
traders so slabs of tab are meet. the has tappers and our animal sanctuary. chipotle was seized by the environmental police because tourists had reported seeing him he was held on a float in the river as an attraction his keek has only gave him leftovers to eat so he was suffering from a damaged liver. but he made a good recovery he was still striped when he 1st arrived when tapped as a young they look like wild boar even though they're a completely different species that actually most closely related to horses yeah the. tough years need to live in areas with a good source of water these animals managed to survive the ice age but within just 15 years humans have made them an endangered species including 2 was a visitors can take tours that reserve where most of the choppers plight a total of $55.00 monkeys live here including 10 balls or carries their population
2:25 am
is also declining rapidly in south america. while the monkeys meanwhile make popular pets. when a monkey is sold commercially the trade is kill its mother so that it's. this one his name is kind still has 3 bullets in his arm you can feel them but there's no need for an operation so they shoot the mama and then they sell the infant when they arrive they're in a terrible state that malnourished dehydrated they often have broken bones they've often suffered foals when their mother was shot. back in the quito. the amazon rescue center works on species conservation rescuing various threatened animals that are vital to the ecosystem including manichees a marine mammal sometimes known as the sea. in monotheists
2:26 am
that's been manatees are the largest mammals and the amazon oddly enough the least well known feel that when we began our work here 80 percent of the end habitants of the key toss were completely unfamiliar with this species. baby manatee would end up in their fishing nets and people would keep them as pets . but then the manatees want to die in captivity. the amazon rescue center is the only place in the world where rescued manatees are raised and then released back into the wild they take a lot of looking after the calves need to be fed every 2 hours for the 1st 2 years they're lactose intolerant so they're given a special milk imported from the u.s. one manatee cost the center $10000.00 per year the animals have a gentle trusting nature. but a. hunter is killed only when they come up from here by sticking
2:27 am
a wooden exact their snouts a terrible death for a beautiful good natured creature and that plays an important role in the ecosystem and. once the manatees are weaned off milk they can start to eat aquatic lettuce. because manatees feed on aquatic vegetation like this here and other plants that cover the surface of the river. and the places where the manatees have died out this vegetation starts to proliferate and the inhabitants suffer because they have less fish and they can no longer go out on their boats because of all the plant growth clogging up the water. the rain forest that we keep those is a vast biotech. if its natural balance is threatened it has consequences for wildlife and inhabitants in the whole region. rhinoceros horn is highly prized especially in asia one kilo can fetch up to
2:28 am
$60000.00 u.s. dollars on the black market meanwhile the rhino itself pains with its life over the last few years poachers have killed an average of 3 rhinos every day. today there are believed to be only around $29400.00 rhinoceros is left worldwide but thanks to tough conservation measures there's hope in south africa more than $1200.00 rhinos were poached in 2013 just over hoffa's many and elsewhere to the efforts of animal activists to paying off. their safety here in this sanctuary it covers 70 square kilometers and responsive by the rhino from. the southern white rhinoceros has been wiped out in other parts of uganda but here 24 of them roam the savannah and what learns.
2:29 am
raymond o.p.o. is trying to find one for us. the range of sometimes has to trek far into the bush to track one down. finally we catch a glimpse of her baby. girl. the gestation period for the species is 18 months. we have to be cautious rhino mothers off for russia sent a fence about a young. woman who is like mother like daughter the mother is the same character the mother when he had just a small stick breaking she is very a lot she's already facing that area. that is what who is who is a no nonsense lid so anything she would attack. 3 rhinos cross our path the drivers getting
2:30 am
a little nervous. which is just. the safest move when you see a rhino is to freeze that it understands you don't represent a threat. but when it's due and. you can continue. about 90 rangers work here and you jeanette is in charge she's been running the rhino funds since 2008 but has brought a lot of new staff on board. and the number of animals in the sanctuary has almost doubled under her direction while the situation on the run is a huge guy if for a long time there was a short period maybe in 1917 the 980 s. were rhinos were pretty secure and then that poaching spot the problem is it doesn't just like in one country it's parks all over poachers have been killed any animals in the sanctuary the rhino fund has been breeding them have 18 years now
2:31 am
the 1st was brought in from kenya others from various zoos. went out in the bush among the rhinos it's important to remain quiet walkie talkies can make the rhinos restless. the ranges observe the animals behavior during the day and at night documenting where they graze sleep and wonder. the data shared with researchers and zoos all over the world. martin look hero is more involved with the rhinos than he is with his own family and he sees them twice a year the trainers are my 2nd 100 there while paying my school here's the other one and from my family is. keeping them safe and free. the rhino fund is financed largely by tourists who come here from around the globe the sanctuary is one of the few places they have a chance to see rhinos in
2:32 am
a natural habitat. we've been all over africa western africa and southern africa and the rhino is the one thing that we've not seen so anyway i would have been looking for the big 5 we seen that the rhino had just defeated us so this looked like the one opportunity to be able to see them the rhinos are only safe in the sanctuary because so many rangers work here ramit o.p.o. explains that strategy. and i think you. read a success we're up to date because of the when you get around because we walk hand in hand with the community around and for this kind of project. if asked before is the community reporter cannot come from china and india in a way at portugal minus right where yeah we have to use the local people and if the local people are you off when you get the business you know they're not going to
2:33 am
vote. in 4 months that. and that includes the farmers in the area. they're allowed to graze that cattle in the sanctuary up to 40 animals each per day . this out try to. help us to raise. enough. for the animals to increase the amount of media. and the children in the area cannot also attend school it's financed by the rhino fund. the rangers regularly come to talk to the kids about the rhinos and explain why they're so important. to you all of you know what to do and i know. what the writers have on their head. how when to hold. writers use their home to protect themselves how do they they
2:34 am
fight using their home if the enemy comes they will use the whole and fight do you know that when we started here. people within this area they were like it's fine to kill an animal to kill a wild and it is fine to do anything to their wild cutting trees it was fine for them and when we came to be here it was a big tug of war to get across a good person to understand why she did. graeme adopt you know spends a lot of time out on patrol he hopes that one day rhinos will again be able to live free without need of protection it will happen that the right isn't go back into wild in uganda by 3 need and very affluent for that and also we need people very much committed in conservation my dream is to see
2:35 am
the rhine is being put back into the national park and multiplying in the numbers in the national park of uganda. but that will take at least 20 to 30 more years. only then will the organization have bred so many southern white rhinos that some can be released from the sanctuary to roam free in uganda's national parks. that's old from global 3000 this week and don't forget me really don't hearing from me say do write to us at global 3000 and d w dot com. take.

2:41 am
party leader the winner will be announced in late july after a nationwide ballot of party members. according to the latest polls most americans don't like him and a majority of americans would not vote for him if the presidential election were held today now those are facts donald trump has declared fake tonight the u.s. president launching his reelection campaign can he convince voters to give him 4 more years to make america great again i'm for golf in berlin this is the day. in the history of the time we do support president trump because he's fulfilled everything that he promised to do.
2:42 am
i've only been traveling the television you speak here live and. she. is going to comment because the media and the democrats on the porch are full. also coming up tonight facebook has your data now with wind to look inside your wallet to. certainly trust is very important and i think facebook given that it's one of the largest companies in the world i think will have the trust of most of the world's population whether they deserve that press or not is another question.
2:43 am
go to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and all around the world welcome but we begin the day with the u.s. president rallying and requesting voters to give him 4 more years tonight in orlando florida president officially launching his reelection campaign trump in his element surrounded by thousands of adoring fans in a sea of red and white magic caps sheltering make america great again we have complete coverage tonight of his official reelection launch we want to start in orlando where my colleague alexander phenomena joins me good evening good afternoon to you alexandra trunk's team is calling tonight's relaunch the mother of all rallies is that what it's going to look and feel like what do you think. one of the it's certainly a big rally at baek party we have a stage she. was playing until
2:44 am
a while ago many people we talked to told us that they arrived yesterday to make sure they are getting a seat or to stand in the 1st row to see the president president and his family to be close to them because they think that this is an historic occasion a historic moment for him to launch to keep his reelection campaign so definitely at be cruelty here today in alexander i mentioned at the start of the program that the latest polling numbers they certainly they don't appear to be in trump's favor i mean most americans say that they would not vote for him today. well that's right he's not doing well according to latest polls and that is quite striking because he's doing well despite a growing economy and despite low unemployment you would expect him
2:45 am
to do well in polls but according to in town polls he's come pain he lies behind top democratic contenders in key states in states such as. wisconsin or michigan and that means just relying on the he's core supporters might be not enough to pull off a victory in november next year when you talk to people here and there are. very optimistic that the president is going to be reelected let's have a listen billy we are super proud there are many that love him in florida florida love struck donald trump and we are proud to have him as the leader of this nation in this outfit it's important for me to bring attention to a basically an election issue that i support i support barriers on america's southern border primarily to keep illegal narcotics and human trafficking out what
2:46 am
he's done for our khana me her employment for our military eliminating regulations for business he said he's done more for this country than any president in the last 50 years. i'm so i would dread the day he's out of office president trump my sister sacristan more into years any president has done in 50 years and years the president for the common man it really is very compassionate. for people of all levels of being. so people here told us that they are very happy with president trump and they also told us that don't they don't believe in polls because trump support just don't talk to pollsters that could be seen in 2016 they told us that there is a secret though it's also in 2020 so they're convinced he's going to be reelected
2:47 am
and alexandra you know that they say that but we can also hear in the people that you spoke with how much of a polarizing president is unlike any that the us has seen in recent memory that has worked for him so far do you expect him to pile on more polarizing rhetoric in this reelection campaign moving forward. yes indeed i expect him to do so because as you said it has worked well for him in the past and also he uses it doing his presidency to distract the public attention from topics or issues that he doesn't like like for example not very nice polls polls that are not in favor of him so we can expect him here to talk about all the rising issues to go after he's a democratic contenders just maybe to distract the public attention from. u.s.
2:48 am
polls and ahead of this relaunch alexandra the president is threatening to deport millions of undocumented migrants beginning next week talk to me about the timing of this threat and the how realistic is it. so i would say that of course he talked about it because of reelection campaign campaign to be kicked out here in orlando he knows very well that he's supporters that a many republican voters they told us here that state think that this is a very important issue immigration and border security however i don't think that what he promised his supporters is very realistic to deport so many undocumented migrants and next week. despite the recent polls that we've been talking about the
2:49 am
fact remains that an incumbent president always enters the campaign with an advantage over his or her rivals does that apply more or less to donald trump in your opinion. i think it applies to him because you know he doesn't have to try to convince his party it to be their next nomination the party is behind him and that's of course very different that it looks like in 2616 so he has the support of his party and he has now enough time to compare and to raise enough money to make sure that reelection campaign is going no work so far he raised 30000000 dollars according to his reelection campaign and that more that any of the democratic contender has done so far
2:50 am
is true i mean the numbers mean a lot and when you look at the democrats we're talking about what more than 20 candidates right now one of those eventually will end up being the candidate for their party let's talk about u.s. allies although xandra specially here in europe they are watching what is taking place today in orlando should they be worried. well we know that. you asked allies in europe are not very happy with the course of hugh asked foreign policy and also ordinary citizens abroad are not happy in the europe in many countries for in particular in germany are not very happy with the current state of the transplant take the relationship however we have to say that many experts say that even if donald trump is not going to be reelected that's never the last of the future of the transatlantic
2:51 am
relationship be can be that it has to change during his practice and see and that trust that always to pin these transatlantic relationship and relationship may be gone for good. or right tell xander for a moment there in orlando florida where the u.s. president is kicking off his 2020 reelection campaigns this campaign season yet again alexandra as always thank you. well as we just heard there is no indication that donald trump will depart from the path of polarizing politics since he runs for a 2nd term my next guest tonight says that is dangerous and even an existential threat to us democracy in his book divided politics divided nation hyper conflict in the trump darrell west describes how toxic politics have become in the united
2:52 am
states and he warns that a nation whose citizens can no longer talk politics without fighting is a nation with little hope for the future. i'm happy to welcome darrell west to the day dale joins me tonight from our washington bureau darrell it's good to have you on the show as i was reading your book there was one passage that caught my eye and i want to bring it up for our viewers to see as well you write this through all of these family university and media conversations it was clear that dangerous forces were being unleashed in american politics the country was becoming polarized and it was becoming harder and harder to have reasoned discussions of national events people were dealt in their adversaries in feeling they were not trust worthy now that sounds there like a perfect description of u.s.
2:53 am
politics today but you were describing the situation earlier in this century before barack obama was elected if it was bad then i mean i guess if you know the world's watching the u.s. it has to be really bad nail it is i mean certainly the polarization that we're seeing now did not start with donald trump but trump has made it a lot worse he has made our politics more toxic i mean tonight i expect him to throw a lot of red meat at his conservative supporters talk about how immigrants are bad for america trying to stealing our jobs i mean he has debased of a lot of the civil discourse around politics and just introduced a lot of negativity so he's made it much more difficult for americans to talk about politics and he's kicking off his reelection campaign today how do you see his chances for being reelected we know that the polls are not in his favor at the moment. the polls are not looking good for donald trump right now but we do have
2:54 am
to keep in mind that america has a 3.6 percent national unemployment rate if for anyone else other than donald trump we would be talking about an easy reelection but trump's problem is that 60 percent of americans don't like him and it's hard for people to vote for someone they don't like so what i expect trump to do is to try and raise the negatives of whoever his democratic opponent becomes because he needs to end up this race in next november with people disliking the democratic nominee as much as himself in order for him to have a shot at winning in there in your book you describe how politics in the us since the reagan era i mean despite zig zagging from the likes of clinton to bush to obama to me despite all of these extremes politics really instead only become more divisive and polarized many would like to see trump being if not the at
2:55 am
least the beginning of the end of that trend is that how you see it are we seeing the light at the end of the tongue. i think we are seeing some light at the end of the tunnel in the sense that many americans are fed up with trump they don't like his policies they don't like his divisive rhetoric the irony is just as barack obama made possible trump may make possible the election of america's most progressive candidate in the sense that american politics often has flipped back and forth between extremes and so i think voters are going to be looking for the anti donald trump someone who is nicer probably much more liberal and somebody who will at least try and bring the country back together and when you say the in time donald trump i do not immediately think of joe biden as the entire donald
2:56 am
trump are you in my reading you correctly here are you saying that one of the other democratic candidates is going to be the one to take the u.s. out of the air. i mean right now biden is looking like he is the strongest democratic nominee but if you go back to past presidential elections the person who is ahead a year before the race often is not the person who becomes the nominee so i do believe the 2020 election is going to be a change election and i think that's going to be challenging for joe biden just because he's been on the political scene for 40 years has a very long record and somebody who's a career politician like that is going to be hard to portray himself as a candidate of change and so i'm still looking at some of these other candidates elizabeth warren camilla harris of california mayor pete from south bend indiana like those are the next generation of politicians and so i think ultimately voters
2:57 am
are going to want someone who is not a career politician and is very different from donald trump today i heard one analyst say that the winning democratic ticket in 2020 would be joe biden as president and a woman of color as his vice presidential running mate is what do you say to that. that certainly could be a winning formula in the sense that it would basically signal that america is changing and biden would be preparing the way for the next generation of leaders but i still think it's a risk for america to go with biden just because trump loves to campaign against career politicians i mean that was really the secret of his victory over hillary clinton he basically said she's been in politics for decades she's got all these deals she's dishonest and you cannot trust her and my concern is he will run exactly the same type of campaign against joe biden and so i think you know it's a long ways before the election next week will have debates among the leading
2:58 am
a democrat so that will start to provide some texture to this democratic field it is a long way to member of 2020 and before we run out of time i want to answer you how culpable do you think we in the media are. being obsessed with the polling numbers i mean we especially in the u.s. but also all over the world we tend to treat this the campaigns as a horse race we're really not doing any good for the public good with that are we do you think we're actually helping this hyper divisiveness continue. well certainly all of us pay attention to the polls and it's natural specially people want to be a truck they want to see how he's a fairing against a different candidates but we do have to recognize that polls change very rapidly and it's so early in the race right now they're really capturing the fact that joe
2:59 am
biden as well know having high name identification is one of the reasons why he's doing well in the polls but certainly there i think ultimately voters are going to focus a lot more on the substance because they can see there's going to be a huge difference between whoever the democratic candidate is and donald trump the policies are going to be different the visions of the future are going to be different the way the people talk about politics is going to be very different rights darrell west author of divided politics divided nation and director of governance at the brookings institution there we appreciate you taking the time to talk with us tonight and we appreciate your insights thank you thank you. for today the united states announced that it is sending $1000.00 extra troops to the gulf as tensions with iran escalate washington released new images today claiming to prove that iran was behind the bombing of 2 tankers in the gulf of oman
3:00 am
last week iran has rejected those allegations these are the new images that the u.s. says proves iran was behind the attacks on 2 oil tankers last thursday in the gulf of oman on if the u.s. claims an unexploded mine was being removed from one of the tankers to hide evidence iran denies any involvement the u.s. says that its new deployment includes security forces and troops for additional surveillance and intelligence gathering in the region imagine observers believe this escalation is aimed at deterring the iran and calming allies worried that transit through key shipping lanes could be in jeopardy. iran has announced it will soon breach limits on how much enriching uranium it can stockpile under the international nuclear deal it's signed in 2015 it also says it will be able to make weapons grade uranium last year u.s.
3:01 am
president donald trump pulled the u.s. out of the deal and reimposed economic sanctions on iran and even though the americans withdrew from the deal they still want iran to comply with the restrictions. we have made it very clear since this president came into office in the senate the secretary there that we will not tolerate and iran obtaining a nuclear weapon full stop the european union and the un have called for caution regarding actions based on the attack on the 2 oil tankers implementation of. the world's largest social network has unveiled the digital coin that it plans to roll out next year the project is called libra now over a dozen global firms will invest in and govern the currency firms that you are well aware of. master card and vodafone and this group will supposedly prevent facebook from being able to control the currency that's an important aspect
3:02 am
the coin that will be pegged to a basket of global currency such as the u.s. dollar the euro and the british pound is shielded from fluctuations that have hit bitcoin for example so will it catch on facebook is betting on its 2400000000 you're going to see that number there 1000000000 monthly users to make it easy to forge a new marketplace for streamline purchases and exchanges well here's what facebook c.e.o. mark zuckerberg had to say earlier today about the project i believe that it should be as easy to send money to someone as it is to send a photo. so we're already testing this and india with about a 1000000 people it's been used a lot in the feedback so far is great and we're already working on rolling this out in a number of other countries later this year all right that was mark zuckerberg speaking
3:03 am
there i'm joined tonight by josh constant he's editor at large at tech crunch that's an online publisher focusing on the tech industry he joins me tonight from san francisco josh it's good to have you on the show so put this into perspective for our viewers around the world is this the beginning of a of a new age in crypto currency. this is definitely a new era for crypto the previous era was dominated by these very nerdy currency is that were mostly good for speculation you might try to buy low and hope people buy after use the price skyrockets and you could make a fortune but basement scripta currency is totally different it's not designed speculation and prices it's supposed to change at all instead is designed to let you paper things in online shops or even in person or pay back friends with very low fees skipping those 4 percent transaction fees you often get with credit cards
3:04 am
we heard that this is supposed to be a really big boon for people who maybe would not have access to having normal banking account people in the developing world. i've heard that a lot of jargon today about on and off ramps into a new. a money ecosystem for example isn't there a huge gulf that still exists between silicone valley and sub-saharan africa when we're talking about crypto currency. absolutely most people think of crypto currency is a way for people in the west to get rich but in reality there's a huge potential for them to assist the unbanked evil of which there are about 1700000000 around the world because if you don't have a bank account it's very tough to get credit it's to if you get robbed you might not have anything left to say your name whereas if you have a bank account it means you could then take out money to pay your bills or what
3:05 am
have you the idea is with facebook's libor cryptocurrency anyone even without a bank can get this online currency account and they can deposit money that they have into this account so even if they're robbed in person they wouldn't lose everything and that would be the basis of a digital identity system which could help to administer aid for non-profits or assist with citizenship and taxes and migrant refugee problems and just let me just ask you this before we run out of time we're just getting the report right now bet a senior u.s. lawmaker a member of congress wants a hearing to be held on facebook's move into crypto currency is that something that facebook should see as a positive or is that a negative. that's definitely a negative but facebook has been shining to work with regulators and it's said up front we're open to discussion we're not trying to replace sovereign currencies
3:06 am
we're not trying to just ruin the existing banking system and we're not going to control this claim we're going to be sharing control of these all these other people with that said with all of its history of privacy problems and concerns about anti-competitive behavior that could lead to antitrust regulation a lot of politicians still might be worried that baseball getting into a new business especially something as important as the financial sector could give it even more power over our lives at a time when everyone wants it to have less and yet that's a very good point you make there josh constant editor at large at tech crunch joining us tonight from san francisco josh we appreciate your insights thank you. my pleasure all right the day is almost over but the conversation continues online you'll find us on twitter either you news you can follow me at t.v. don't forget use the hash tag today and remember whatever happens between now and then tomorrow is another day we'll see you then everybody.
