this is r t eight pm wednesday night or a moscow welcome to this live news update for the next half hour with me now and starting with this american officially has a new top diplomat former cia director mike pompei is just being sworn in as the secretary of state in a ceremony at the state department attended by president. i must say that's more spirit than i've heard from the state department in a long time many years we can say many years maybe many decades it's going to be a fantastic start a fantastic day and that spirit will only be magnified only with this man right here i know that for a fact. so lots of promise or is there let's cross no top washington correspondents
american thomas or the events america well the ceremony today took place at the state department with trump president and in fact it was the president's first ever visit but trump had nothing but praise for pompei o a calling him a patriot with immense talent energy and intellect and then pompei it gave his speech and he vowed it to help the united states get back its wagger let's take a look. i talked about getting back our swagger and i'll fill in what i mean by that but it's important the united states diplomatic corps needs to be in every corner every stretch of the world executing missions on behalf of this country. now pompei a speech was well received by everyone from the media to other officials some didn't even wait to compare him to tillerson saying that he was more open than tillerson ever was a pump a i did however stress the concept of american exceptionalism which is
generally considered controversial in some circles but let's check out what else he had to say i talked in my my hearing about the fact that this nation is so exceptional and so incredibly blessed this is a unique exceptional country russia is unique but not exceptional. but to remind our viewers it wasn't always smooth sailing for pompei or his nomination was initially met with fierce backlash from both ends of the spectrum mostly democrats but a few republicans here and there democrats specifically took issue with pompei is record of advocating for regime change and one republican believe it or not exact same way now if they even brought up his previous views on north korea and iran. i can't think of a thing that has put america in a better position as a result of this deal we're a year out from the agreement and every single action the iranians have taken has
been bolder and starker than the ones they took before the agreement. a very real danger. by hardly ever escape a day at the white house without the president asking me about north korea and how it is that the united states is responding to that threat it's very much at the top of his mind they are ever closer to having the capacity to hold america risk with a nuclear weapon. throughout this whole debate pompei is stay pretty busy over easter weekend he even met with your case leader marshall came jiang moon but it might get a bit more hectic now that things are getting tense with iran and it'll be interesting to see how pompei will handle that one given that he's pro israeli and pro saudi which could present an issue when he's dealing with their mutual arch enemy so what does have to see if this leads to any changes and whether or not they're positive things the input there from washington d.c. of course all of this marathon. israeli prime minister appears to be intensifying
efforts to convince donald trump to drop the run nuclear deal but he wanted no claim to the controversial presentation this week that to run lloyd about its weapons program has broken the agreement the allegations come just ten days before the u.s. president will decide whether or not to walk away from it. they're trying to bamboozle the entire world and very glad that president trump has. enough of that we're not going to be hoodwinked we're not going to be taken for a ride we're going to have to do a serious serious change or to make sure that iran does not have nuclear weapons that means this deal was a terrible deal why give this speech in english and do it in such a big way well because i wanted the world to hear all of it while bibi may claim he's trying to convince the world that we as in true the only person he needs to convince ease trump and given trump spots rhetoric that may not be so difficult to
do donald trump made it clear he didn't like the deal back in the days of his campaign and netanyahu is presentation more showmanship than facts seemed to really mesh with trump tonight i'm here to tell you one thing. i think of anything what's happening today and what's happened over the last little while and what we've learned has really shown that i've been one hundred percent right his presentation was largely in english and he went all out to prove that iran is developing nuclear weapons he presented thousands of documents c.d.'s as part of his powerpoint presentation except almost all of it was old some of the stuff be presented as an indisputable evidence dated to nine hundred ninety three almost nothing beyond two thousand and three experts said john brennan former cia
director said netanyahu showed nothing that indicated that iran had violated the nuclear deal and the international atomic agency agrees the agency had no credible indications of activities in iran relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device of the two thousand and nine the us off the b.b.c. stun said that this proves that iran quote has a robust plan this time nuclear weapons program a few hours later they changed it quietly to iran quote had a robust clandestine nuclear weapons program they blamed clerical error for that one nonetheless they say iran is still dishonest iran lied on the front end they were dishonest actors so far it's been entirely unconvincing experts buying it u.s. officials skeptical pundits and convinced european allies trump to come
to his senses and reconsider almost everyone else is too but benjamin netanyahu has his charms and he's done it before there is a question what's with the. and is working and is advancing towards the development of nuclear weapons question what see how confident he was only an invasion and thousands of deaths later did we find out that b.b. had lied his charms never worked with a bomb or they didn't get along all that well but they got along great with bush and it looks like it's working with trump great friends those two they've both claimed. by way of a recap the iran nuclear deal was struck back in twenty fifty that was brokered by the us china britain russia france and germany and held there is
a huge diplomatic success those negotiations took ninety years in the making it exchange for some sanctions being lifted to run agreed to strict limits on its nuclear program and to open up its facilities to international experts tell you mcadams of the wrong paul institute told us that he believes the israeli leaders trying to manipulate washington now and looking for confrontation with iran. netanyahu knows very well that he cannot take on iran on his own bibi is playing trump like a fiddle but look around trump is good all the same losers that were in power in two thousand and two who lied us into going into iraq or we're supposed to believe that somehow just a week or so before trump has to make his decision on iran that all of a sudden it come into this amazing information here let us rush to share with you this information telling you how evil they are it's all purity just like his ridiculous bomb thing at the un it's just a desperate ploy to lie us into another war. next night france's dealing with the
fallout of what's been described as the worst may day violence in paris since one thousand nine hundred sixty eight on tuesday over a thousand black bloc anarchist turned up to a peaceful union organized protest against president mcroberts labor reforms that they began though clashing with police soon after hurling smoke at night and destroying cars and property officers arrested more than two hundred of the masked left wing activists half of them still reportedly in custody tonight with more on the unrest the group the french capital the charlotte dubin ski. this come over here and you'll be able to see the bullets here of a french food restaurant that is being put up that was completely and utterly destroyed yesterday restaurants further behind on the street will also destroyed and basically the police did very little in fact nothing for a long time when this destruction was happening it was only further on into the demonstration when the violence took place of the little bit further on that they actually did something now they've said the reason that they didn't react as
quickly as some people say they should have is because they were trying to avoid collateral damage there's also been criticism criticism over president he's currently only official tool of a stray some people saying the president shouldn't have left france when there was so much social and ease here he has hit back saying what did you expect me to do sit at home and watch it on t.v. but the violence by the black books as a say some of the worst that i've seen in paris take a look at what unfolded on may day in the middle of cashews now starting with the police i want to maybe look over you'll see the tear gas is coming up to us the police move again i'm not because just behind us there is a fire going on the demonstrators have put forward to a very cool and emerged bike and as you can see smoke. well as you might have gathered we've just been in the middle of what was quite
a large clash between the police and the protesters just look behind me this is one of the trucks with the water cannons and you can see the gendarme now coming down and you can see some of the water in the form that's been on the ground to try and push these protesters back take a look behind me and they're actually trying to barricade themselves up now that's off to they set fire to what looked like a g c p the fact it's still own fire over that. the distance the process is did is if you just turn around a little bit more what can we have a look at this you may see this. coming up here and the protesters what they did is they lit the fire it see what seemed to be some sort of motorbike and a car show that. r.t. paris it's not just the french president's labor reforms the got some people shaking their heads in disbelief during a joint news conference with the australian prime minister. when you micron's
english led to an embarrassing folks. but it's essential for. your delicious white for your warm welcome. your delicious wife for your warm welcome for. america's democrats could be in for a rough period if recent polls sort of thing to go by the reuters news agency has revealed support for the party's slump by about nine percent among young people these days i want to remains more popular than the republican party nonetheless the g.o.p. does seem to be gaining ground caleb opens in new york for
a skate in the extent to which the younger generation the values are really shifting these days. are young americans just less rebellious and more friendly to tradition and authority or is there a problem on the left side of the spectrum we decided to talk with some younger americans and find out shutting down conservative or right wing speakers on college campuses to identify with that shutting them down now i don't think we should completely shut them down and why agassi think everyone should have a voice and be able to speak on campuses he shouldn't close it seems to be to want to be open to anything anyone especially the president college said and that's a good as the last place we should be saying no to open ideas and discussion i don't think that's fair because everybody is entitled to their opinion we don't have to agree with each other that doesn't necessarily mean we can have a civilized conversation facebook different social media outlets saying a certain racial words are offensive in the us they'll strike them down to take speech do you agree with that. no i don't. and i again
everybody has. their right to. talk on they want to talks because they want to speak it's a free country so why not share yeah they shouldn't send say things like i think that a lot worse things are happening in the world what about like getting rid of certain sports practices they say are offensive to women like ring girls in boxing or cheerleading. i would say leave the option forward to something that exists and don't necessarily like promote it's as a thing we don't necessarily have to get rid of it i think we should just to just put more males into it there's somebody always willing to take the jobs years ago it was liberals that were calling for freedom of speech and challenging social norms but these days we're increasingly seeing calls for censorship coming from the left so is it possible that younger americans simply don't want to comply with the
rules being imposed by the liberal order are conservatives now the rebels. r t new york. all could be this some commentators suggest that the democrats' preoccupation with political correctness could be one of the reasons for their waning support if i do one recent incident a schoolgirl found that even the choice of dress has become extremely sensitive issue for some people it was up to she posed to the picture of a traditional chinese pramod fit on social media.
chatter and causing so much negativity i mean no disrespect to chinese culture i'm simply sharing my appreciation to their culture i'm not deleting my posts because i've done nothing but show my clout for the culture or the way people dress to the way they talk about it as they speak about the democrat party over the last decade in america has been anything but the american will have of the democratic party is that they focus on issues to create a mentality that's that's the ruling dynamic of the democratic party they go out and seek people who feel what they kind of fanned the flames of the mentality convincing them that they have an oppressor and then they say we're here to rescue . for a live news event and so we showed these pictures clue for year of tens of thousands of antigovernment protesters from the former soviet republic of armenia there
brought the capital to a grinding halt still happening is these live pictures the activists be blocking roads across the city after the parliament refused to accept the leader of the opposition nicole as interim prime minister the day of mass action which follows weeks of unrest in the country is reportedly remained peaceful largely in the turmoil initially began after surge sarkozy who just finished serving the maximum two years as president was appointed prime minister by the ruling party critics called the move on comes to choose an attempt to cling on to power a groundswell of public anger and resulting mass rallies led to his resignation the now be another attempt to elect an interim prime minister next week but if no candidate is successful there will be fresh elections. thanks for watching out international with me kevin owen coming up a lot more including the u.k. looking to bolster its side defenses and step up the fight against the spread of dissing from asian we'll tell you how after the break. it's.
what politicians do do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. or somehow want to risk. it to be like to be for us to see what the forecast for you in the morning can be good for the. interest of all those in the waters in the. first six.
i give you courage to fonseca things calling on journalists an i.t. specialist now to enlist in the armed forces in an attempt to tackle distin from asian and online propaganda it made the comments in an as yet unpublished interview with the house politics magazine and his ego is done of takes a closer look. he is a rising star a fireplace salesman turned defense secretary he is gavin williamson and he summons you my fellow british geek it's battlefield world wide web and the u.k. army is ready to charge at the enemy in this age where there's so much this
information we're britain's enemies will use every angle they can do to change the narrative people who have traditionally thought about joining reserve forces we want them to come in but actually it's looking to different people whether it be journalists those people with amazing cyber nighty skills those people with the ability to really understand about getting messages across their worst nightmare is coming true with the enemy has infiltrated but your id skills are a game changer. we are living in the fake news in competing narratives the government will respond with more and better use of national security communications to tackle these interconnected complex challengers fake news and adverse are you worthy of a call to arms from the military chief himself by his standards that's a pretty big deal to realize that it's enough to look at his voting record from the time when he was a conservative m.p.
the investigation into the iraq war for instance was below the worthy attention bar for williamson in twenty sixteen he voted against an inquiry into the contrast between the public statements and private actions in the run up to the war human rights and equality i'm also not something worth fighting for according to williamson like when he voted against outlawing discrimination on the basis of cost you know the situation when you can be written off as scum for your whole life simply because you were born into the wrong family but what williamson voted consistently for though was foreign bombings from our surveillance and bulk data collection we've come a long way from churchill's we shall fight them on the basis of weight to the point where we're going to fight them on twitter and we're going to fight them in facebook and the rest of social media so i think that the very suggestion that this is a priority for our armed forces is is very disturbing if you're looking at journalists
. join up with the armed forces i find really peculiar and very strange as you say journalists can do a perfectly good job discovering truth and exposing things that need to be exposed through the normal channels so why would they suddenly become puppets of if you like a particular aspect of government but of course with fake news being such a hot topic now at least we can be. sure the british army will stay trendy at least while williamson is in charge. let's check out the football now tracking that the fee for world cup trophy is arrived here in russia football's biggest event which kicks off here in moscow just six weeks now and counting the most iconic prize in the sports meet the more than fifty countries burst far before arriving in russia's a lot of astarte were released the trophy will now visit eight other cities in russia to finish its trip in moscow also on tour across russia as artie's own
