12:02 am
trade wars to challenges to traditional international alliances leaders of the world's most industrialized economies are struggling to find common ground at the g. twenty summit in argentina and is alien to trying to reports many of this year's hot button issues were talked about on the sidelines. but on thursday donald trump pulled the breaking news by tweeting right on the plane i won't meet with putin because of the ukraine the us administration made it clear they were trying to send a strong message to russia and they wanted everyone to hear and boy to feel that the aggression that we witnessed this week is unacceptable and a strong message has been some place. i was
12:03 am
a strong message just isolation the isolation. you. know as you can see the plan or mission isolation didn't quite work and it doesn't feel like donald trump is really comfortable having to play the role of someone who must ignore mr putin anyway the american president has been really gloomy mood all throughout his stay.
12:04 am
the russian side says they were losing the opportunity for direct contact. with mr trump somewhere here at the venue but in any case there were plenty of other meetings planned for both presidents white america who began his day in one of august with the leaders of brazil south africa india and china they got together as a brick so there was a kind of a summit within a summit and here is what one member who can said they're using you can go on notice that unfair competing practices increasingly replace the international dialogue based on honesty and equality this vicious practice of using lawless
12:05 am
unilateral sanctions as expanding as well as protectionist measures violating the un charter. later in the day vladimir putin met emmanuel macron and a journalists who works with the french president reported that he actually took a piece of paper and draw a map for mr mack want to show what actually happened between russian and ukrainian ships in the current strait speaking of mr macron he was one of the leaders who ended up being caught in a string of bad luck either before they arrived at the g. twenty or right after they got here.
12:06 am
what we call the faults of a u.s.
12:07 am
congressman roemer poll he doubts the trumps tactics towards russia would yield any good results. that sounds like high school stuff you know i'm not going to talk to you anymore though i think the diplomacy is lousy even if you agree with somebody and on occasion i'll agree with our president but then it's under by and you know sometimes by the diplomacy and the way way talks and the aggressiveness i'll do this i'll give you this or all parts actions on you and threats are involved even even if there's an attempt to correct a problem see but no i i don't i don't think that it's good to try to isolate in pine asian room put on sanctions and limit their ability to get on financial transactions but the whole thing is from my viewpoint as an american and some spend some time in politics i'm concerned about that for our viewpoint from us our viewpoint because when i look at what happens to countries that have a reserve currency spend too much money go deeply in debt stretch themselves too far you know not too long ago
12:08 am
a soviet system did that they got into trouble so i think that if anybody is should be vulnerable and should be worried about it it should be the americans being you know isolated and that would be detrimental in a way i sort of like some independence and not these you know international organizations but that's not what would be coming isolation it would be painful for to us because someday there will be a challenge to the dollar and then that will be a big problem for united states. leaders prepared to get down to business thousands of people turned out in the argentinian capital to voice their disapproval has the latest from one of saudis. this march is really the culmination of a week long state and teachy twenty protests what she see here is

12:10 am
meanwhile in paris police are bracing for another round of angry rallies later this saturday our europe correspondent peter all of us has the latest from the french capital where the government met some activists to try and the unrest. it didn't go to plan at all really out of keene leadership members all of the yellow vests only two of them showed up and out of those two one of them stayed for less than two minutes before storming out having this to say to the extreme you bob i want to you i already spoke about this before coming here and then again express this to the prime minister i wanted this meeting to be fully recorded on camera and broadcast live so the french people could watch it because i don't deserve to be here more than anyone else but i was denied this i made
12:11 am
a commitment to my family that i would leave if the meeting wasn't going to be recorded so this has caused some people to question what the french prime minister was doing organizing this meeting in the first place if it wasn't going to be filmed the demonstrators had made it very clear that that was a crucial part of what they were demanding when it came to these talks one of the representatives though did remain in the meeting with the french prime minister we don't know what came out of that what we do know though is that demonstrations are still planned for saturday on the seans elisei they turned violent some horrible scenes from last saturday. for saturday we are expecting though a much larger police presence that we saw last saturday and they'll be looking to
12:12 am
try and well stop a repeat of the violent scenes. well the french government says fuel taxes need to remain close to current levels to pay for public services the tax is also part of a broader effort to discourage car use and also cut carbon emissions bustles based journalist new group says the high prices are making life difficult for people in both france and belgium. this demonstration and it is being canceled because the organizers couldn't organize the security they said to the police so they had originally cancelled it and it's only through social media then a few hundred people were there at ten o'clock to demonstrate of these yellow vests oh like in france of course it's mainly in the french speaking part of the country of belgium that they demonstrate imitating french and in a sense but with the same ideas that taxation it's come to. table level people very peaceful everywhere with a yellow first to say that they were fed up with the taxes especially the tax on
12:13 am
diesel the price of the few is sixty percent taxes fifty five to sixty percent depending on the country it's much too high and when you have a single mother with kids in the country who needs her car to go to work and earns one thousand one hundred maybe met and has to pay three hundred three hundred fifty four for petrol or gas american they can't do it anymore they're dying simply it's the silent majority that pays its taxes normally. next wild west parties made more than a few people livid after american actor and comedian kevin hart held a themed event for his one year old son's birthday party his wife posted several images of the party on instagram showing their friends and family planted in native american inspired tribal print blankets and that got many people angry online saying that playing cowboys and indians is no game anymore. you'll need to
12:14 am
research and apologize not apologize for having the party but apologize for blowing people off after they explain to you how this can be offensive this theme is a trash stop being defensive and learn from your mistakes play in the game for years doesn't mean it is right what if half of kids had been painted black and wore shackles and the other house wore korvin and curried weeps. well kevin hart says the criticism he's been getting points to some deep problems in modern culture . this shows just how stupid our world is becoming with opinion people who are at a point of an all time high to throw racial judgment into the development of a one year old birthday party where the theme is cowboys and indians and it's him it's it's based around the outfits that are given to these young kids we spend some
12:15 am
time discussing it with me and legal analyst lionel as well as women's rights campaigner resurfacing. conversation we're having here is why the implications are much broader at first glance oh it's just a one year old's birthday party but here's the thing about it a lot of the decisions we make as adults are based on information that we received as children the truth of the matter is that some of that information was incorrect when you were a child and you say i want to dress up like an indian or we could argue whether it's indian with a native american the child does not say now i get to realize the fact that these people are racially inferior to me and i can celebrate the subjugation of these people by virtue of white forebears and that's not what happens is it's a child who says i like to dress like that because we whitewashed history so much few people are even willing to deal with it because they're so blind to what's been
12:16 am
really going on around them as we be that that'll zakk what was behind this statue or peel back when behind this giving celebration lay began well the legal side a real issue when we played cowboys and indians we never said can i play the cowboy so i can slaughter the plains indian no it was i'll be the indian you be the cowboy we're kids were pretending but what do you pretend to do with them you pretend to shoot them you pretend to tie them up your scientists shoot them arrow what we're talking about is little kids who are innocent at each juncture of these moments in history where we unveil the truth we get closer to being the real underlying issue of racism in america this is going to right now show the rest of the world with all due respect that and i mean this how absolutely pathetic this is that
12:17 am
seemingly grown adults are talking about the racial implications and the appropriation of culture from little kids who want to dress up like indians. former u.s. president barack obama claims that republicans live in a different reality than democrats we'll explain that for you after the break. the people who run the economy price money the commodity that runs economy they say are the signs i mean they're just making it up as they go along it means that there is no principle that they are guided by they consider themselves artists because of the impression they consider themselves completely subjective in their view of the world if they can simply raise rates and lower rates based on when there's nothing
12:18 am
economic reality there's no school of economics there's no science behind it it's. so close. to going. that's what. americans who favor the pro republican party media outlets live in an entirely different reality from those who get information from pro-democratic ones that's
12:19 am
the view of former u.s. president barack obama kind of open explains how part of the media typifies america's political divide and how obama himself might also be a part of the problem. former u.s. president barack obama is now talking about how americans are living in a political bubble by the time i take office what you increasingly is. a media environment in which if you are a fox news you are you have an entirely different reality then if you are a new york times reader well i agree i think obama may have heard that somewhere else there is one echo chamber that loves the donald and the other that hates him well media at go chambers are indeed a big problem in the united states a new study from mit revealed which media outlets get the most three tweets it turns out the more partisan you are as a media outlet the more recent tweets you get if you look deeper barack obama himself might be a big part of the problem that he describes this is what his communications
12:20 am
director said about the conservative t.v. network fox news we're going to treat them the way we would treat in the opponent as they're undertaking the war against barack obama and the white house we don't need to pretend this is the way the legitimate news organizations behave in a recent speech the former u.s. president did not pull any punches when it came to the republican party and i don't mean to pretend i i i'm channeling abraham lincoln now but that's not what he had in mind i think when he helped form the republican party. it's not conservative it sure isn't. it's radical barack obama is not alone many media outlets have noted that americans seem to live in alternative political realities political realities that they themselves perpetuate check out this headline from a vox it raises concerns over deep differences in american society but this is the very same outlet that dismissed trump supporters as nothing but raises and don't
12:21 am
forget conservative superstar ben shapiro he's called out that bubble effect but he's also said this democrats who sold their soul to maintain federally protected abortion on the supreme court cannot cannot be trusted with power the divide in us society has become deeply unhealthy so unhealthy that opposing sides are comparing their opponents to diseases or wishing they'd get one we still have hillary clinton in the headlines she's committed. to the representative from lombard i would like to make him a bra off of legionella and pump it into the water system of his loved one so that they can be infected they can be mistreated and ultimately die partisan media bubbles might be bad for america but they are great for ratings cable news politics seems a lot more exciting when it looks like a boxing match and when the free marketplace of ideas and commercial interests step
12:22 am
into the ring there's little incentive to get out. let's just tell you more about the news you can see and read at the bottom of your screen it was announced about twenty minutes ago that the forty first president of the united states george h.w. bush has died at the age of ninety four george bush sr as he was also known was hospitalized for low blood pressure and fatigue. also battling parkinson's disease he was a world war two fighter pilot a former cia director and then into politics top table as vice president so. under ronald reagan's two terms then he got the job himself in one thousand nine hundred nine and his presidency although only one term did cover a particularly turbulent period so the end of the cold war and also the first gulf war following the iraqi invasion of kuwait that led to years of sanctions against iraq and the ultimate removal of iraqi leader saddam hussein more than a decade later after that of course the legacy continued because his son george w.

12:24 am
a war with the us i think you mean yang when it comes to america and its threats towards iran the whole thing is getting old always threaten us with something but there is never any action iran is not a danger to america's interests some people say the u.s. wants to change the regime in this country or to simply threaten us but i think america doesn't want any of that the u.s. is confronting the room just because it's the regional power and iranian political analyst we spoke to believes the u.s. wants to force to pressure iran to the negotiating table. what the u.s. is doing is only trying to escalate the tensions first in order to pose a threat a bold military threat to iran to forestall want to the negotiating table second to also more helpful some students to up on the southern end of the farce in the gulf and convince them to form an arab nato force in order to pay the

12:27 am
so when you want to be president. or some want to be. the two going to be crossing the border before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested holes in the water's edge. there should. be fed the people who run the economy who price money the commodity that runs economy they say is more are the signs i mean they're just making it up as they go along it means that there is no principles that they are guided by they consider themselves artists because of this of impressionist they consider themselves completely subjective in their view of the world that they can simply raise rates and lower rates based on a whim there's nothing guiding them in economic reality there's no school of economics there's no science behind it it's pure whimsy.
