in order to pursue this you know that's one issue it's an ethical issue it's it's something that you know doesn't reflect good character and if you want to get more creative than crowdfunding you can always write a book i'm a rose i'm an adult newman's new book on hinged tells stories from inside the white house thirty four thousand copies were sold within the first ten days and before on the rose it was james komi the fired f.b.i. director now he wrote a book about donald trump and within the first week six hundred thousand copies flew off the shelf writing books about donald trump is a smart move this year every single title on the new york times nonfiction best seller list has been about donald trump so if donald trump yells his natori is catch phrase that you don't sweat it it could be a ticket to making more money than he paid you to begin with what people have to realize one of the bout is a donald trump has been more. a source of jobs for more

11:35 am
was to be somewhere safe but after meeting him i was afraid the whole time that he heard me again so i couldn't stay there anymore weakly continuous and just a mark. of . what politicians do to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to express an injury. or something wanted. to be like. it's like for real people. interested always in the why.
11:36 am
question. i'm going to join us today with a general election on the horizon in sweden and migration a keirsey of debate tensions have been growing on the streets of the capital on saturday hundreds of members of a neo nazi movement a rally didn't central stockholm and were met by angry counter protesters ati's more if an option that was that.
11:37 am
we are in central stockholm right now in sweden at the gathering of nordic resistance movement in sweden it's also a political party and they are running for the upcoming elections in vain sad that this gathering is a chance for them to make their message heard if we want to take back to college or from the traitors in the parliaments to infer two percent of teens have a sense of. europeans it's already too late for just stopped immigration we must take them back if politicians wittingly governments today they are traitors towards our people because among many all their feelings they open our borders sign for. for a few millions of forward your savior. in the long run the doubts will lead to own doubts it seems we will become a minority in our own the phone for even longer on that we will cease to exist as.
11:38 am
we are just minutes away. way from where nordic resistant movement is gathered you can see there are just straight new citizens who came here to challenge to. protest . this shouting right now not to say now is streets. why did you gather here today. because we are against this we're against the nicest man racism and so. they. didn't know society but they take the seans in an open society. quite incredible i just had a chance to speak to the leader of the nordic reasons movement and he told us that he'd larry did a great thing for german people. there was definitely a very very good person for the german people that's not for. the free germany it's
11:39 am
disgusting and he i i would say that i'm almost lacking words here in the beleaguered to say that the diplomacy could go i mean that must be cause for the police to intervene. took ninety five percent of my family guess and so we didn't is go in parliament elections in two weeks and as they say here everybody wants to be on the streets these days to make their voice heard preproduction and our tea from stockholm in sweden. around two hundred fifty protesters at the university of north carolina chapel hill pulled down a controversial confederate statue on monday night the one hundred five year old monument known as silence has long been seen as a symbol of white supremacist by i erected in one nine hundred thirteen it commemorated those who died fighting for the slave holding confederate states in the american civil war the monument had
11:40 am
polarized opinion on campus for decades and had been vandalized in the past although many sort has racist and offensive others argued it was part of the south's heritage and therefore should be preserved. now the university for its part condemned the toppling of the statue as unlawful and dangerous but did acknowledge the monuments divisive nature at least one person was reportedly arrested during the demonstration and police are investigating acts of vandalism and the incident forms part of a growing backlash against confederate symbols across the country. political
11:41 am
activist anthony rogers' writer and conservative radio host dave perkins discussed the implications of the move and how the vestiges of the confederation period should be dealt with. they're abandoning the historical context they're forgetting why those statues stand there who it was that put them there what the thinking was
11:42 am
at the time and what the statues represent the history that led up to this or that person being remembered in the statute these statues are a continuation of that history of white supremacy that quite frankly this nation was stolen on slashdot what we're talking about symbols that we're seeing couldn't place really to fight for an oppressive system there was chattel slavery that regulated black people as an human as property what was the history of that coin is that statue to appear it wasn't just a simple we love him he's racist he's a southerner he's a general in the civil war he's a k.k.k. guy he was racist i put that statue up because they were racism he was racist and they wanted to remember him in the context of everyone being racist together that's hyper simplified and stupid and ignorant of history why don't we hear more keep along the right talking about the slavery that's happening right here so to say
11:43 am
that we found that far along i don't think that you can say that you have a president who has incited violence against people of color whose dog whistles that racism have become. words which have led to people like our sister on heather being killed in charlottesville last year on why don't we see conservatives talking about that hate why don't we see conservatives going up against a president who has literally under you talk about freedoms when you're more concerned with this actually than you are n.f.l. players having their rights it's a need to stand up to reece's the white supremacy that run this country everything that happens here in the public square in public view is political those young people believe it or not do not come up with this plan on their own it isn't a spontaneous organic demonstration it's a political plan involving street activity designed you. to divide us because there is an election coming up in just a couple of months of midterm election year where all congressmen and one third of
11:44 am
senators are up for reelection it's not that this is at all to the top of your presser but what this is is forcing people to look at something to have two or three symbols but white supremacy when they're going to school for you on the black and brown women so on their currency to see white men who say machinery against there is a source who say she kind of reach that to me it's that this is not talking about it is that this is a. fighter jets vehicles of all kinds and of a six hundred units of and a quick wind display during the international military expo held in russia russia's most a famous weapons manufacturer a kalashnikov group was among the exhibitors with its a latest robotic offering suddenly provoking the internet meme me quickly into action.
11:45 am
thanks for sharing your sunday with us here at austin international and joining us here for the weekly my colleague nicky aaron will be joining you in half an hour's time with another edition of the weekly hope you can join us.
11:46 am
when a loved one is murder it's natural to seek the death penalty for the murder i would prefer and it be in the death penalty just because i think that's the fair thing the right thing research shows that for every nine executions one convict mr dennison the idea that we were executing innocent people is terrifying the is just no way to present them that we're even many of the families want the death penalty to be abolished the reason we have to keep to get pell here is because that's what murder victims' families what that's going to give them peace that's going to give them justice and we come in and say. not quite enough we've been through this this isn't the way.
11:47 am
all. are. welcome to the part of the iranian nuclear deal once branded as a major achievement of american diplomacy has now become the poster child for the absence of it dull trans decision to renege on the agreement not only reopens a major international problem but it also calls into question the very means of solving it with betrayed adversaries befuddled how should the world navigate its way forwards well to discuss that i'm now in joined by jared blanc senior fellow at the carnegie endowment for international. peace and formerly a u.s.
11:48 am
state department chords in a dairy free run you claim plantation mr blank it's so good to talk to you thank you very much for finding time for us thank you now i'm sure you are greatly disappointed by present trends decision to wire walk away from the day c b o eight but hopefully there is still some room for damage control how much of a do you believe can still be salvaged well i suppose you can call damage control there from the u.s. perspective no good outcomes here one possibility is that the path that we're currently on the successful and that's that immediately after president trumps announcement president rouhani said ok we're going to stay in the deal for a little while and give time for the other participants mainly the three european countries to see what they can offer us to make it worth our while to stay in long term that could succeed it would be good from the perspective that would keep her on the nuclear program under control and under inspection but it would leave the united states very isolated and europe for the position to confront other
11:49 am
problematic iranian policies alternatively those negotiations might fail which would lead to a resumption of industrial scale enrichment and a serious serious problem for the region in the world now trump is obviously in violation of the american implications but to some extent he's choosing his word because last winter he gave the europeans what looked like an ultimatum that he was going to do it on the last the transatlantic allies could agree on sound ways of shoring up the deal and i gather from your article is that the talks which began in january were progressing fairly well what do you think may have happened to upset all about progress well i think it's a combination of a lack of sincerity on president terms part he wasn't really looking to come to an agreement with our allies he was looking to act on his and a mess toward his predecessor barack obama. and also the. total chaos and
11:50 am
dysfunction in this administration so the president gave his ultimatum senior officials worked on negotiations with the europeans i don't think there was any process to brief the president on the progress and so you know he heard about it from president mccrone and from chancellor merkel but that had not been buying into the decisions made along the way as you pointed out in one of your articles they were a number of things that trump could have done he could have extended the sanctions waiver to allow a little bit more time for the talks and yet he decided to end it abruptly after all those meetings cordell meetings with president micron and chancellor merkel to the russians that looked kind of through a do you think he was trying to make some point to send some assets to the europeans or is it just mr trump being who he is you know it's hard to know if he was trying to send a message but certainly after all the bonamy of the mccrone meeting after the
11:51 am
supposedly improved atmosphere in the merkel meeting and then he actually treated his intention to make this announcement and sort of telegraphed where it was going while foreign secretary boris johnson was actually in washington trying to convince vice president pence and the secretary of state to continue the negotiations it whether or not he was intending to be rude whether he was trying to send a message this clearly isn't the way allies behave toward one another the russians are often accused of and entertaining all sorts of conspiracy theories and i personally think that's a cultural thing rather than political because we enjoy it counter intuitive explanations and one such conspiracy theory that's been. stalking me is of us preparing for this program is a thought of whether or not iran is the main thing here or do you really think that the major thing here as mr trump sas is this fear of iran's potential nuclear program oh. absolutely not if the concern were ron's nuclear program the solution
11:52 am
was the j c p o. if anything the pulling out of the running the risk that iran will restart industrial scale enrichment that raises the possibility of increased conflict across the board so if you want to conflict with iran this is the way to go this is obviously not about trying to contain iran's nuclear ambitions but also that what i think this is really about is barack obama president trump is trying to tear down the accomplishments of his predecessor i think it's pretty clear from his public remarks that he does not understand what was in the way or what is in the g c p o a and it doesn't really matter to him he doesn't have a policy objective he just wants to disparage barack obama and what about the so-called european allies because. there are some many issues involved i mean the fate of the european. exemptions from tariffs on steel and aluminum is still
11:53 am
very much up in the air mr trump is supposed to make his decision until june first now there is a threat of. secondary sanctions we are talking about very very large chunk of the economy do you think all these economic issues and i'm trying to phrase it very carefully not to be accused of russian bias but still do you think these economic issues are going to be featured in the political discussions on the run sure i mean the first thing you need to say about this is that from your from europe's perspective iran does not matter economically so whatever decisions europe makes these are the the g c p u a are going to be national security could decisions and political decisions if they want iran to stay in the j.c.b. way they're going to have to offer some additional economic benefits but that's not because europe is deeply in amort of the possibility of trade with iran i do think though to. question dear broader question europe is perceiving all of these things
11:54 am
as a piece of the steel and aluminum tariffs the recent sanctions on russia the resumption of sanctions on iran i think you see the united states disregarding the needs and interests of its allies and europe and other allies are going to have to look at this and decide how to respond in order to protect their own control and yet mr blank you suggested before that in the event of trump's pull out your of will likely side with the united states even if it blames the current administration for ruining this deal and if it does i think the european leaders will essentially have to accept that their level of credibility is the same as tribes that they are moral equals and i personally don't think there's much trouble on that side of as far as the u.k. is concerned but when it comes to germany when it comes to france. do you think they can afford it from a moral point of view do you think chancellor merkel for one can bring herself to
11:55 am
be seen as standing shoulder to shoulder with trump and that well first of all i think that's a little bit unfair trump is the trump is the actor he is the decision maker in this terrible decision the european leaders are now stuck with a series of very uncomfortable dilemmas that they will need to resolve but but they're not the ones who created this disaster what i wrote though was that if iran were to were to respond to our violation with a violation of their own i'm quite sure that europe will side with the united states if you have the u.s. out of out of out of compliance in iran out of compliance then europe will side with us even if we were the if it's our fault if iran manages to stay in compliance i think europe is in a much more difficult situation and the possibility that they will try to strike a additional bargain with iran to provide some replacement economic benefits israel but i think the question here is not only striking additional concessions for iran but also negotiating about. the united states because i'm i'm pretty sure you're
11:56 am
heard a number of officials in the trauma administrations directly almost ordering european companies german companies to get out of iran to seize their business operations there immediately. that's hardly seems to be building bridges that you employ a bit with the allies but putting that aside do you think the united states needs to be taught a lesson here that's essentially the question i'm trying to ask you do you think the european union needs to take a moral stance in this on this particular issue to show the united states the trumpet ministration in this in this example that this is not ok to conduct international politic policies like that i mean american women american former official i'm not going to call on europe or anyone else to teach the united states a lesson i think europe has got a very very hard set of decisions to make where they'll need to decide the need to weigh problems in the transatlantic relationship against their real concerns their
11:57 am
national security concerns about the resumption of iranian unconstrained nuclear program and i'm sympathetic to how difficult those decisions are going to be as i started out by saying from the u.s. perspective there are only bad answers here either you've got europe essentially isolating us because they find a way to save the deal or you've got europe failing to save the deal and return iran returning to unconstrained enrichment which is a huge problem for us for europe and for the world but hold on mr blank you may have forgotten but it was the administration you worked for the obama administration which was very proud of forging the so-called european consensus on sanctions against russia back in two thousand and fourteen and the rationale back down to was that. russia in your eyes violated certain norms of behavior and needed to be signed a signal that this is not the way you conduct yourself on the international arena now. we now have the united states which clearly violated its obligations that
11:58 am
reach is involved in behavior that you clearly disapprove of you made it very clear throughout this program which also leads to an increase in confrontation in the middle east should the united states be sent a similar signal that this is not the kind of behavior that its european allies welcome on the international arena. leaders around the world including from our closest allies have condemned this decision and the very fact that europe has now shifted from negotiating with the united states to negotiating with iran is a strong rebuke to the decision that president trump made i would i describe president obama's leadership on sanctions with iran with russia with other countries a little bit differently from what you did i don't think it's a question about germany making a moral stand or a value judgment what i would say is that we were able to convince countries around
11:59 am
the world that on a variety of problems we had a plan and a way forward and that if countries were willing to suffer a certain amount of economic dislocation in the short term we can solve real problems and so in the iran case we were able to convince the government of russia china india as well as our closest allies to stick with us and we got to the j.c. . and some of russia's policies we were able to convince as you say germany and other european countries to suffer some real economic harm because they thought we had a plan i think the problem now is that the united states is proving that we cannot be trusted with this tool and so the chances of getting even our closest allies let alone a nontraditional partners like russia like china decide with us i think they're they're much much reduced i don't know if you heard this but chancellor merkel said the other day that your of can no longer rely on the united states in order to protect itself and i would argue that the more pressing. question right now is whether you're of can. really take it for granted that the united states will not
12:00 pm
lash out at europe economically do you think this rat of secondary sanctions is real do you think the united states good. full force against european countries if they decide to continue trading with iran provided of course if iran is in compliance with the. so the threat of secondary sanctions is very rule real basically this idea that you know if you're a non us company you've got to choose do you want to do business with iran or do you want to do business with the united states and for most companies that's going to be an easy choice and for most companies the threat is sufficient the u.s. doesn't really have to do much enforcement in order to get a lot of big companies to say you know what this isn't worth the risk but european governments do have tools available to them to seek to counter the secondary sanctions threat and that's the question i think that's going to be on the table when europe negotiates with with iran.
