why kim 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. the president. apparently televisions you just feel your work and putting. your child. is going to happen it can become big news
media and the democrats a bunch of cool. also coming up tonight facebook has your data now we would like 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. told 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 shelving 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 rally at baek party we have a state she alive was playing until 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 and he's so
rick no-man's to launch to keep his reelection campaign so definitely at the corral the here today in alexander i mentioned at the stuart of the program that the latest polling numbers they certainly they don't appear to be in trump's favor me 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 is doing well despite a growing economy and despite low unemployment you would expect him 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 nuts 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 said let's have a listen but 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 he's done for her condominium her point men for our military eliminating regulations for business. 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 interviewers any president has done in 15 years and the. president for the common man it really is very compassionate here. for people all levels are being counted. 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 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
whole rising 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 the u.s. 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 thread 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's 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 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 domo truong in your opinion. i think it applies to him because you know he
doesn't have to try to convince his party to be their next nomination the party is behind him and that's of course very deep friend that it looks like in $2616.00 so he has the support of his party and he has 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 down so far 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 the u.s. allies in europe are not very happy with the course of 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 never the last of the future of the transatlantic relationship be can be that it has change during his credits and n.c. and that the trust that always underpin the transatlantic relationship and relationship may be gone for good. all 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 is 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 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 bill 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 doubting their adversaries and feeling they were not trust worthy now that sounds there was a perfect description of u.s. 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 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 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 trump let me despite all of these extremes politics really have steadily become more divisive and polarizing many would like to see trial being if not the christian at 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 donald trump i do not immediately think of joe biden as the in tied down load 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 people from south bend indiana like those are the next generation of politicians and so i think ultimately voters 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 so i think you know it's 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 it is a long way to member of 2020 years 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 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 biden as well know having a 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 and care 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 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 or magic 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. 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 in
this instance secretary there that we will not tolerate an 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. 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 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 their 1000000000 monthly users to make it easy to forge a new marketplace for streamline purchases and exchanges well here is 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 us out in a number of other countries later this year all right that was mark zuckerberg speaking 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 currencies 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 the price is it supposed to change at all instead it 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 now we're we've 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. 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 resist the unbanked evil 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 at least you could then take out money to pay your bills or what have you so 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 nonprofits 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's said up front we're open to discussion we're not trying to replace sovereign currencies we're not changes 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 but 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. the phone.
