president donald trump today world leaders convened in the socket japan at the g. 20 summit trade wars climate change migration crises it is a long list of geo political problems to solve but it was the u.s. president's joke to russian president putin that defined the summit's 1st day take a listen. or that drew a smile from one of your boot and it drew fire back home of the u.s. today former u.s. president jimmy carter questioned the legitimacy of donald trump's presidency he offered no evidence but he said if fully investigated he believes the evidence would show that donald trump did not win the election in 2016 a former u.s. president attacking a sitting u.s. president at the same time it was the russian president who came to the defense of
12:05 am
donald trump today take a listen. critical. people can criticize u.s. president trump as much as they want to build a wall between mexico and the united states and maybe that successive i don't know i'm not going to argue but he has to do something with the flow of migrants and drugs doesn t. no one's doing anything and you know it will be migrants can kill rob and right and nothing will happen to them because their rights have to be protected what rights. you know what some of what rights as full and brussels correspondent barbara vessel she's on the story for us tonight good evening to you barbara it is striking that we have tonight the u.s. president and the russian president basically speaking from the same playbook what
12:06 am
does this look like from europe's perspective. from hear a pin perspective brant this is a spectacle that sort of really raises the suspicion that here too so have found each other who might be actually spiritual or whatever you want intellectual or mental brothers and the problem is that of course making a joke of meddling with elections as the american president did in this little saying that we saw is not something that european governments find funny at all because every european and action the it in a member state of be it the elections to the european parliament beforehand there were special sort of measures taken in order to guard against disruption from russia and to guard against things on the internet and interference and all sorts of on all sorts of levels and so in the end from
12:07 am
a european standpoint looking at these 2 people 2 of the most powerful people in the role of playing this sort of buddy buddy game with each other is really disconcerting and it might show 2 great disruptors playing a game together modeless him a show that and today as we were saying earlier in the program former u.s. president jimmy carter says that he doesn't have the evidence but he says that the investigation were to be conducted into russian meddling in the 2016 election and he says it would show that donald trump was not voted was not elected president that's quite a statement to make and it's quite a statement coming from the world's biggest and most well in most important democracy does europe have an emergency plan if the u.s. democratic system begins to show serious fissures and fractures. no
12:08 am
it doesn't there has been all that there are ample warnings and if you read the big european newspapers if you look at some of the european political thinkers and or former heads of state and government writing their own there are warnings everywhere saying this is going in a very bad direction and it is a wrong direction and if you took just look at the way that vladimir putin taunted the europe's just the day before the osaka summit he gave an interview to the financial times a british. economics a newspaper and he said he sort of wrote in that interview that the liberal western model off democracy was at it and it wasn't serviceable and mark and so we should sort of just turn away and sort of obviously go the way that russia goes or maybe go the way that he thinks the united states might get and the president of
12:09 am
the rupee in council who is an awesome guy he really sort of. fought back and he said what really is obsolete is also read tarion ism and the rule of the rule of law garcia and europe still sticks to its model a majority of citizens backed you know and we all know that they are strains in the system even in europe you have seen that in recent elections yes we've seen that here we've seen that of course with the german chancellor she has been called the last great leader of the liberal democratic world order and this week for the 2nd time she was seen in public shaking and in she is a beacon of stability and when people see her shaking they were in she not will she not help the mind right in saying that when merkel shakes the world it begins to shake in fear. it might only be slightly exaggerated friend however i mean.
12:10 am
i have seen her and have seen her being a very very her sturdy little self and she is a very strong physically and mentally and so this might really be nothing that might be a certain overinterpretation by however large parts of the european press and i'm going to america and her spokespeople emphasize that she is healthy that she can go the whole way that she can do what needs to be done and hold the talks to the very end and also and so the fears might be exaggerated by it but the sense to the teeth that very issue shows how much fear actually there is in many people so it's not exactly right people realize you know that she believes that the way to 2021 or. these a woman's voice. thank you very much have
12:11 am
a good weekend. you know america does not want to witness a food fight they want to know how we're going to put food on their table. the american people understand that a troll is a phony the troll is a pathological liar donald trump has put us in a horrible situation we do have an enormous income inequality and the one thing i agree on is we can make massive cuts in the $1.00 trillion dollars in tax loopholes out there and i would be going about eliminating donald trump's tax cuts for the wealthy we should call out the posse when we see it and for a party that associates itself with christianity to say that it is ok busy to suggest that god would smile on the division of families at the hands of federal agents that god would condone putting children in cages has lost all claim to ever
12:12 am

12:13 am
who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country and it was not only that but you also worked with them to oppose bussing and you know there was a little girl in california who was part of the 2nd class to integrate her public schools and she was bused to school every day and that little girl was me. so i will tell you that on this subject it cannot be an intellectual debate among democrats we have to take it seriously we have to x. with fully. restored to race my position across the board i do not praise racist it is not true number one number 2 if we want to have this campaign live in gated to support civil rights whether i did or not i'm happy to do that i was a public defender i didn't become a prosecutor i came out i left
12:14 am
a good law firm to become a public defender when in fact 1. 100 facts my city was in flames because of the the assassination of dr king. going into this debate many thought that it would come down to a clash between the 2 biggest names bernie sanders but as we just heard. had other ideas we have more now from our correspondents alexander fund. i found it quite interesting to see how the top the 2 top contenders were flexing their rhetorical muscles taking aim at each other at the beginning of the debate and then come along. the senator from california jumped in and she was so patient and she was so determined and she made clear that she came to put dissipate in this debate to win it and i've been to some of her events to her companion kickoff rally
12:15 am
in oakland a few months ago so i was aware that she is a good performer but to many people i talked to at watch party we went to this night were very impressed by her by her personal story about growing up as a woman of color in the united states. the indian parliament is considering a law that will ban the practice a verbal divorce practiced by some indian muslims not the wall is being called the triple talaq bill is the word for divorce muslim in the past by just 3 times i've been able to divorce their wives the supreme court has banned this practice and now the government wants to be drawing the band into a wall and this has divided opinion. so you know romance

12:17 am
they believe the government's intentions are less than noble telling me they want to hold muslims accountable they want to tell people that look these muslims are so backwards. a situation is so bad that look we have had to make a law. things have got so bad that the government has had to perform surgery. mr modi has done all this but can we do. without a massive row there but no money isn't alone in his mistrust of the company the opposition congress party has called the bill glass discrimination against muslims by the hindu nationalist government of prime minister narendra modi others are more clearcut on what modi is doing the real purpose is to send a big political message to the hindu community specially that we can do mean that the muslim man the muslim man has a certain image need to. sexual jealousy towards the muslim man because he's

12:20 am
team movement on a global stage back then the stonewall in was a haven for people who didn't identify with the heterosexual norms of the day here they could hang out drink dance simply be themselves but not without risks being gay could result in prison or heavy fines violence and harassment were common in the early hours of june 28th 1969 police raided this spot the stonewall inn now it wasn't the 1st time but this time around it was breaking point lesbian gay and transgender people were herded out and on to this street the now iconic christopher street bottles and bricks were thrown on the rates dock to protest question asked if the day's college a remembers them well she was 22 at the time and kept her gay identity secret fearful of the consequences like reading lesbians of my generation i compartmentalize my life i had to hide my identity in college. and
12:21 am
now i was hiding my identity at work because i could be fired for being a lesbian under the law homosexuality was illegal i already knew there really was nothing wrong with me but for me the question was how are we going to get society to change seen thousands join her in protesting for gay rights emboldened her as a founding member of the game liberation front she helped organize the 1st ever gay pride marches from there her role as an activist was issued using her new found voice to become an author an icon of the movement changing millions of lives with me without a doubt amazing progress we were going to fight for incremental change and hope that someday. heterosexual society would allow us to work or allow us to go to school it seemed to me that we needed to force this change our
12:22 am
message to the world you don't need a word group of people to create change you just need the will and the courage to do it. a message which is that inspired a younger generation to engage when they seek me like casey hankins he's concerned that there's still no nation wide north korea texting l g b t people from just criminal action if you have like marriage equality and like that's probably not going to go anywhere but there's so much more rights to be had for your people you know like i did i took a cross-country trip with my partner 2 years ago and we were discussing how like as we drove state to state our rights drastically changed our protections drastically changed and and that's to you know gay men not to mention trans people that are not going to be validated for that i see so much more progress that has been made over time a sentiment echoed by others who come to the memorial park office at this time morning
12:23 am
write to me means acknowledging my history i'm bisexual person a pansexual person and it acknowledges my history and what we've fought for to be recognized to be able to get married to the people we love to be able to be in public with the people we love and just to be able to be ourselves and come out like and there's still a lot of progress to be made there while for many tourists this gay rights memorial represents a moment in history of the l.g. t.v. from the stone ruling is a reminder of the struggle that continues today. marks a goal was a teenager from philadelphia when he entered the still role in june 28th 1990 don't we been living in new york for a couple of weeks the events of that fateful night set the course of life as
12:24 am
a journalist and activist for g b t rights he spoke with us earlier today. in those days in new york bars were usually raided one of those raids to place the police came in took the money and left what was different about this night what sparked that riot they came in they barged in when people got to the wall they hurled insults at us they called all the names that we've been called are all alike we're like they that once people have money and took their wallets out of their pockets and took that money and put it in their pockets we had never been treated so lonely in our lives when we got outside eventually more of us outside they were still busy inside we started hurling things to do work they could get out that like for the 1st time in history we entrap the police rather than the police and dropping it was the 1st like that i felt that i stood in the street something a little legal again a day out loud 8 and i'm going to be in your face for ever 50 years now i've been
12:25 am
doing that and i'll continue do as long as we have to because people in this country the united states still don't have their full rights and we will fight for that everybody for gays lesbians trans people who are being killed in the united states and a lot of me would say we still have to be class citizens gay pride is probably the best export the united states ever did for the world so that was walked should all speaking with us earlier. 50 years isn't stonewall that may seem like a long time ago but in 1969 when the stonewall riots took place the liberal global order the world as we know what the west well it was barely 25 years old and we journalist we are as guilty as anyone of forgetting the flooding upon which we stand today especially when there are horrific stories of inhumanity such as children dying this week at the us mexico border but what does it mean when world
12:26 am
leaders begin pronouncing the world as we know what dead this is what russian president vladimir putin said today. to say what i mean this modern liberalism in my opinion it's obsolete and our western partners if it makes it that some of its points are just unrealistic but apply could multiculturalism and so on but he would even throw obsolete where have we heard that before us president used the same adjective to describe another post-war alliance nato what putin and trump have in common is believing that most of us don't have much in common our differences get in the way and yet we know what happens when leaders take us to places where everyone is supposed to be the same the liberal democratic world order under attack like never before and yet it is where we still find reservoirs of hope
12:27 am
and the best of our humanity this was our greatest achievement to have 3 generations after us not grow up the way we did when we walked. 670 another street says 1st. june day and we said join us we didn't know that the world would join us and be proud but so many people did change the way the people grow up in this country. they did it well the day is almost done but the conversation continues online you'll find us on twitter either at u.w. news or you can follow me at brant golf t.v. don't forget to use the hash tag the day and remember whatever happens between now and then tomorrow is another day we'll see you on monday everybody have a good weekend.
