government shutdown becomes the longest in history as donald trump plays into the democrats for fusing to fund his border war plans. to do is date is the deadest and for good to see just. the british prime minister looks increasingly isolated in parliament ahead of tuesday's crucial votes on tax breaks that plan. we're watching the weekly hit on our national around the put the stories that shapes the week. we starts with france where the l a vest movement has held its ninth weekend of protests against the government's charlot to been ski reports from paris.
oh. the first tensions are rising here the up to three will be in paris one of the protests in the city one of many protests taking place across france we have had violence here in new york to creoles our. border. because. there's water cannons now in full force trying to push protesters away. that would to cannon and tear gas plumes coming up from the ground we've seen the
protesters throwing a projectiles at the police we've seen the police responding. to gas that's just being dispersed those flash pools and those gas pellets as well as one look like to be stun grenades and a mobile police force now you can see running in the hole dressed in black you could just see behind me that is a little fire that's just the period that's been coming along people reveling around that as that i guess comes in the air that tear gas is just moving we can hear it now and people are moving to want why when i have improved as the eyes tear gas of being up pushed down there are a five thousand. offices taking part in the security of paris
eight thousand across france people i've spoken to the chelation all say yes this is act nine this is the ninth consecutive weekends but this is not going to stop this is going to continue. and it was not only the french capital that experience protests on saturday in nonce thousands took to the streets with police using tear gas to disperse the crowds and in leon hundreds marched in tribute to the ten people killed since the protests started they released yellow balloons and laid flowers to honor them and some of the protests ended in violence. oh the. french call cost c i reported to have this journalist and two accompanying security officers were assaulted they were covering the rally in the northern french city of ruing one of the security officers had his nose broken and needed hospital treatment there are also other
reports of attacks and intimidation on journalists across the country. it's now day twenty three of the us government shutdown making it the longest in history and throughout the week kids ations have been flying back and forth between democrat leaders until trump approach in congress have refused to acknowledge the crisis president trump must stop holding american people hostage but stop manufacturing a crisis stoke fear and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration and must reopen the government the federal government remains shut down for one reason and one reason only because democrats will not fund border security no president should pound the table and demand he gets his way or else the government shuts down senator chuck. rumor has repeatedly supported
a physical barrier in the past along with many other democrats they change their mind only after i was elected president on wednesday the us president stormed out of talks with top democrats in congress branding the meeting a total waste of time he later tweeted he said bye bye to house speaker nancy pelosi when she refused to approve funding for his war. film of florida state democratic party chairman mitch season and american political commentator bank has differing views on the buddha will dispute he hit on every note and you know what's holding all this up you know it's just keeping the government just down and holding all this up is the fact that nancy pelosi says no wall not one penny that's not negotiating this was a purely political attempt to help his poll numbers where sixty three percent of the people in america now say they don't want the war and they want to turn back on
his statements about mexico is still going to pay for the wall because of tariffs that's nonsense we're lowering the tariffs to be less money coming in it's exactly the opposite almost every democrat including schumer voted for a fence a few years ago with obama and love the fence and make speeches about how they need a wall obama made speeches about it now it's immoral because it's trump who wants it so please trump will declare a national emergency reopen the government take the funding from the military and guess what the democrats won't like that either so nothing donald trump could do that won't negotiate with them any movie makes it good to criticize so you know it is what it is that's the political reality today when i think backs of times of presidents democrat or republican who asked for national time like candy during the cuban missile crisis or obama when we killed osama bin laden or bush with nine eleven those were real national situations the problem is is that when we have a real national crisis two thirds of this country will not believe president trump
when i took the oath of all i swore to protect our country and that is what i will always do my administration has presented to congress with a field proposal to secure the border and stop the criminal gangs drug smugglers and human trafficking. with the cloak taking down to choose days crucial votes in the british parliament series a maze has a busy week trying to win the backing for heads of all steel but it's once again the prime minister was given a hostile reception by her own parliaments. the deal is dead is the deadest.
i believe it is possible to have that future relationship which is deep in place with the european union that gives us the freedom to do what we want to do. prime minister has been recklessly wasting time holding the country to ransom with the threat of no deal well the prime minister of peace the facts there is little support for a deal or no deal in this times we. why on earth would we walk away from this to be frank or who've lost trust in the prime minister's ability to negotiate a good do. if this deal is rejected is that we have the risk of bricks it promises. to carry in your car making derogatory comments about threats that stick up on the subject of bricks it happens to be. affixed to or in the windscreen of my wife's car yes i'm sure all the
your noble gentleman wouldn't suggest for one moment. there's a wife is somehow the property or chateau. for now it seems to reason may could be forced to seek a new deal as the current one is not expected to pass on tuesday with a growing number of m.p.'s expressing their opposition to the prime minister's plan another option is that the u.k. leaves the and its institutions without any deal in place a tool amid the uncertainty they have also been calls for an extension of all fifty which would give the u.k. more time to negotiate a divorce and while theresa may has ruled out calling a second referendum that too could still potentially happen all this is. contributed to tension in and outside parliament as party boy her reports meet on
a subaru she's a conservative politician and a vocal opponent of bragg's it but this week some of her opponents came to westminster and got more vocal than her. right political or you know if you were offended by wireless i just think this is astonishing this is this is what has happened to our country something has happened the debate over how britain's departure from the e.u. should look or whether it should take place until now has turned rather ugly this is the palace of westminster is where british politicians work and the area around it is a public street as you can see anybody can walk down here there can be demonstrators as well and it's not unusual on any given day to see a politician maybe a member of parliament or even a senior minister simply walk out of here and towards abingdon green here where they might be taking part in a t.v. debate or an interview but that practice is increasingly under threat as the
atmosphere here turns increasing in times over the impending gregg's that day and the fact that there is no agreed common action in place this was an a subaru trying to leave after the interviews. that you just want to do when it comes to the politicians aren't the only ones getting abuse from agitated members of the public sky news anchor kay burley was heckled by pro brags that protestors while live on air. rather her car of the world. were and owen jones a left wing journalist and author was taunted by a group of right wing protesters i believe everything began with there was a right surely this situation outside parliament has now become an issue. truth for parliament to deal with i must study to the house that it is frankly couldn't be
told. if members of parliament. lists. go about their business in fear. this situation cannot stand over sixty politicians have written a letter to london's chief of police warning of the deteriorating security situation around parliament and demanding better protection some of those systems have said that a certain degree of abuse or heckling simply comes of the territory of being a elected politician or just a public figure in a functioning democracy but the police did now have the relevant difficult task of balancing the screen them to protest of some with protecting the safety of others including mine. still to come an aussie donald trump is threatens to take drastic action against hickey of assyria that story after the break.
when else should seem wrong. why don't we just don't call. me. yet to say proud disdain comes after. and in detroit because betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy for him to let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic development only loosely i'm going
to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. call come back to the weekly don't trumpet threatens to devastate take us economy if the country attacks the kids in syria in a tweet he said the us military put out swill go ahead. starting the long overdue pullout from syria while hitting the little remaining isis territorial caliphate haud and from many directions will attack again from existing nearby base if it reforms will devastate tuckey economically if they hit kurds trumps tweets comes
days off to take a renewed his threats to launch military offensive against the kiddish why p.h.a. in more than syria their group receive support from the us and has played a crucial role in fighting a ceramic state but the white pages feared by and chris a terrorist organization that is speeches puts a strain on the u.s. and to case a long standing alliance within nato a former pentagon security analyst michael maloof believes trump cannot afford to escalate the situation with techie if troubles to keep any kind of balance in the region he's got to be careful it's also going to watch his words because people are only getting sick and tired of troops throats especially in the morning and then i think that this is actually having an adverse effect because it is driving turkey more away from the west and nato and pushing everyone more towards the east and comments like that control only reinforce it was determination to look more
peaceful than. the west. the us ambassador to belen has threatened sanctions for any companies involved in the north stream to pipeline project with russia has done of course have reports. the u.s. ambassador to germany just issued a warning to companies working on the russian led nord stream to gas pipeline he said in a letter that these companies could face sanctions if they stick to the project as you're aware the united states strongly opposes nor stream to the pipeline poses serious geopolitical consequences to our european allies and partners we continue to stress that firms operating in the russian energy export pipeline sector are engaging in activities that carry significant sanctions risk the embassy spokesperson said this shouldn't be interpreted as a threat but simply a declaration of us foreign policy now construction on the pipeline began back in
july and at that time sixty six percent of germans were polled at supporting it and it certainly is a big business venture it's a joint project between the russian state owned gas company and five western companies with germany taking a lead role on the project now this pipeline is supposed to double the capacity of an existing pipeline already on the baltics and it's supposed to stretch from western russia all the way into the heart of the european union when it's budgeted at around nine point five billion euros now america has the united states has been against this since the beginning back in november the u.s. ambassador to the e.u. said that washington had the tools to curb the project if berlin remained adamant now let's hear what berlin had to say now about this the us ambassador seems to give the impression he's a voice roy of the washington emperor the us ambassador using direct threats
towards german companies is a new and i'm accepted build strengthening of tone in the transatlantic relationship which the federal government should protest against the matter of european energy policy must be decided to europe not in the u.s. so the pipeline controversy could go in a number of ways it all depends on whether the e.u. is willing to carve out its own economic path or whether it's willing to continue to allow the u.s. to influence the situation from across the atlantic. tama says the u.s. is simply pursuing its own economic interests and will strain the united states to center their own shaded guts and in competition we have a russian gas they try to blackmail europeans in order to force them to buy more american shale gas and sense it is working because germany
accepted to build a new word port to import shared goals from united states but at the same time the europeans want to continue to make energy business of russia because it's cheap and secure the second objective of the united states has always been to control eurasia and to prevent europe to be too close to russia it towards to a way to present a strong sense emerging on the eurasia between western europe and russia and by trying to always fragmenting eurasia it's a way for united states to keep the leadership in both worlds for their own job particular power. greece is on the brink of political chaos that after the defense minister quits i think that his party will say relief the
ruling coalition prime minister and access the press is now calling for a confidence fate in the government raising the possibility of snap elections. i'd like to get the up to date hamas comment or said he's resigning as defense minister and that he would ask the same from other members of the independent greeks party i accepted his resignation and they want to accept any other resignation to come move swiftly to the procedures that our constitution and the parliamentary rules oblige for the renewal of confidence in my government by parliament in order to proceed with a clear majority on all those crucial choices for our society and our country. the defense minister opposes government plans to approve this more than a but changing its name to north macedonia here does this any detail including macedonia in the name of the balkan states was on except civil as the name was tied to greek civilization and culture. to make you very much of the issue of macedonia
the issue of the name for which thousands of people good does not allow me to say force my position in the government the show present nation intensifies a twenty seven year dispute over what to call greece's neighbor has a look at why. for decades greece is fourth basically over neighbor macedonia's name because athens border region is also called macedonia one of the country's official name safeway on short for the former yugoslav republic of macedonia stopped laying claim to the rich history of that name after a little treat genius alexander the great still study to walk out of these round the world. without looking its neighbors nato and the leadership over the issue is finally greeted me the republic of north macedonia macedonia as parliament be amended its constitution to ratify the name change but greece's politics means it has yet to do the same and the deadline for ratification is this month. full
meccano mix had to tear it needs to me train up less leaves a deal every macedonian name change could lead to a major crisis in greece it's something that the greeks the majority of the greek people do not appear to be ready to accept and as i said all. polls show that public opinion is against the segment which means that a major crisis of legitimizing of this system of the political system the greek parliament as it. stands now is in jeopardy. so i'm not sure whether. prime minister cheaper we're going to do it early elections now he would hope to drag this regime far as possible towards next october when it's the end of its term in office in order to hold
elections and by that time there may be a major national crisis. by the forces that are opposed to this agreement outside parliament. a polish mayor has been stabbed on stage during a charity event he's in critical condition after the assaults the attacker walked around the stage shouting that he was wrongfully imprisoned and to the form of government he blames the mayor have a dam of it as he was previously a member of poland's ruling party the suspect was held down by security guards under snow in custody. thanks for watching my colleagues worry sushi will be with you in around thirty minutes time with the latest. as a spy you have to really split your own personality into two you there is the committed
you hardest that was still alive within me and then there is the person who wanted to counter everything they want to do and then trying to dismantle everything they were doing so you have to really become a good doctor in order to. you have to follow your own family in order to fool the . provision of my by going to. your for your height or lost his boss because i just will begin look at any of the . resources you know. any book your money might all those you put it with the better honest i don't believe a. sonar says you know what i was you're not. you're not just i mean what almost got it i'm already what it was but. i remember the lord.
give it up as i must really feel that you will get off on getting worse but those were the old village people side of the people are going to respect them all of this but i would probably say this this well is one of these i will ask him i will write about him we've got a bomb i just got that already yes a question. in the thought of giving up their calling with you and yours implementing a lot of problem you know squat about it. as an officer. told them to get up off the ground the officer began to pat him down. and then place on the sounds of kind of fighting him i mean grown man like wrestling essentially the officer who. drew his john. twisted away from the officer of the toys out of his group. the obvious or did they kind of lunge for the weapon ones missed and then when it happened on tree swung as observations didn't hit him i never saw any contact between the two any kind went
back to where they were so the officers back here there try again fifteen feet apart at this point and that's when the officer pulled out his gun and he did it on three. i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the us is over twenty trillion dollars and. more than ten white collar crimes have to teach this. eighty five percent of global wealth you longs to be rich eight point six percent market saw a thirty percent rise last year some with four hundred to five hundred three per second per second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building a two point one billion dollar ai industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need to remember is one one business shows you can afford to miss the one and only.
what politicians do something. they put themselves on the line and they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. some want to be upset that that's why the press this is like the full story in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the was in the house. sitting. on. hello and welcome to cross talk for all things considered i'm peter lavelle us secretary of state mike palm pale tells us america is
