a new poll finds that. the children. stick. on the side of a bus as part of an. international life. welcome to the program. we start with the. mounting access to communications between donald trump and putin regardless of form and classification after reports that the us president can see all the details of his talks with his russian counterpart. richard tiles were conducted without the
presence of an interpreter the following request was sent to the white house. the committee's request the by march the fifteenth twenty nineteen the department produced all documents communications regardless of form and classification the referral relate to any communications between president trump and president putin us democrats are expanding the investigation into alleged trouble russian collusion the findings of the current probe into the issue yet to be made public then takes a closer look. there's an old saying among cops and prosecutors if you throw enough at a wall eventually something will stick and this old saying usually expressed with less polite terminology seems to now be the montra of the democrats in congress gerry nad lawyer has been selected to lead the charge impeachment is a long way down the road we don't we don't have the facts yet but we're going to initiate. a proper investigation so you have ph somebody you have to persuade the
american public that it ought to to happen to remember the bob muller investigation that highly expensive two year long probe into allegations that donald trump had colluded with russia not too long ago democrats had many people convinced that it would be a huge game changer. well the final report is imminent and some are worried that it won't contain a bombshell or smoking gun revelation but some democrats seem to have the same overall goal because we're going to go in there really. i eighty one people have received a letter from the house judiciary committee they plan on following up on every last lead from the testimony of trump's former warrior michael cohen at this point they are planning to investigate the relations between the white house and trump's family the firing of james komi foreign trade deals and much much more and it won't
just be the judiciary committee that is looking into donald trump all you have to do is follow the transcript if there were names that were mentioned records that were mentioned during the hearing we're going to take a look at all of that the u.s. constitution lays out procedures for trying and removing a president who is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors the idea is to put a check and balance on the executive branch so that it is not above the law however it seems that as of late invest. ations and impeachment have turned into just another play in the never ending political football game he looked up at r.t. new york the white house has already reacted to the new democrats effort calling it a disgraceful and abusive investigation into tired fall through a location former u.s. republican congressman michael patrick flanagan things that the democrats need a fresh inquiry because the special counsel has failed. the democrats knowing that
it's not going to be much of a report are now trying to build their own campaign and continue the to video from all or in their own clumsy imperfect way and their goal is to take this president down and make sure that he is in no way possibly real active next year and so they will do their best to keep this alive if more was keeping his or his a his summer his investigation somehow alive they would be doing this because the need for this investigation would be would be vitiated by a bible or doing here this but now all is done and he's apparently not going to report much of anything this is the democrats furious so they're going to build an investigation that they control that they run that they can control the outcome of an surprise a price that will have the outcome that they wanted to have and no one will believe it. bonus while a self-proclaimed interim president when quite a ways back after tour in latin america in defiance of
a chapel ban imposed by the fan a swelling supreme court washington took to twitter to cheer his return at the same time taking a swipe at the elected power in caracas. venezuela has welcomed back elected power in caracas. venezuela has welcomed back who are. good to see venezuelan security forces standing on the right side of history the world must unite push to end the brutal murder regime and peacefully restore democracy. the world is watching its venezuela confronts imperial aggression and moves forward with dignity we will continue to hold high the flag of our free people who raise their voices against imperial interference. will return to the streets determined to mobilize in search of freedom the ambassadors of france and germany the netherlands and brain greeted quite at the airport a long. while flag waving supporters met in for

where like in venezuela they decide who is a dictator and who isn't they decide which dictators rule and which don't state supports any number of dictators who violate human rights including the leaders of egypt saudi arabia the u.a.e. you don't see that the united states support for other brutal dictators around the world undermines the credibility of your argument is the phrase monroe doctrine. it's an archaic nineteenth century policy that basically says no nation in the americas may be colonized by europeans out of bounds for europeans and everyone not from the americas a little later teddy roosevelt twisted this policy turn that inside out instead of protecting american nations the us now toppled governments it didn't like there now they've twisted it again now they think they can do this everywhere
all over the world and they are and a bill that legitimizes us meddling there terry quire threat assessment and strategy to counter russian influence in venezuela. in effect they're trying to justify meddling in venezuela pogany because it's too friendly with russia and saying no not that then is asked for it not even america's champ there but you don't see broad support for i believe that there is respectful participation of russia in regards to watching the fate of our country but the same goes for other countries that are paying attention here and merica knows better in syria half the world away it's the same story in syria the united states where used to plumb us in work with our partners to expel every last iranian boot and work through the un a process to bring peace and stability to the long suffering syrian people for the
life of me i don't remember syrians are asking the united states to get rid of iranians but america knows better africa too many chinese there thinks washington up to no good now is the time to boot them out china uses bribes opaque agreements and the strategic use of debt to hold states in africa captive to beijing's wishes and demands goes without saying it wasn't the africans who asked for this in fact according to the latest gallup poll most africans approve of chinese investment plans leadership in africa but the united states knows better you know why because it's special exceptional better than you or me officially our
mission is to reassert our sovereignty reform the liberal international order this is a unique exceptional country. imagine mr monreal would turn in his grave if he could see what is but nine policy protecting the weak from european. colonizers what that has been turned into a license to kill to meddle to topple governments and politically burn continents oh you've got to be special all right the small dr will be generated. regular demonstration and it is not how. the representing all that is the. american so. for example in so the gold of south america the disappearances of thousands tens of thousands of assault americans imposing to boston style dictatorship baldwin is
threatening he's so good either you are going to either you're going to behave sweet though you do really or it will be another it will be retarded to do. that should be. to actually throw away mobilize our most of the. relatives of children of french jihadi as have appealed to the un for the children to be allowed back to france they're currently being held in canton syrian kurdistan one of the lawyers who helped to lodge the complaint says the children would be able to adapt to a normal life in france. to speak when the french people every day for three years in a row are being held in this children are now i'm bombs they want to do the repairs region what is real in fact there's been this eighty four children have already returned to france they have debts they're being social license they're ok according to save the children charity there are now more than two and
a half thousand children in camps in northern syria from around thirty countries where it goes the lawyer we just heard from things around one hundred of them are french france is currently dealing with the return of these children on a case by case basis the majority of the. people seem to be against the children's return a new poll found that sixty seven percent of respondents didn't want them in france we spoke to patrick jarden father of one of the victims of the paris concert hall attack carried out but i still think the children of jihad is have to pay the consequences of their parents. parents are bearing responsibility for the future of their children they left france voluntarily nobody forced them out they decided to fight against france french nationals our sister channel r.t. france spoke to paris paris and see what they thought about the children's fate. it's of all children should be protected and all circumstances. it creates a real friend children back they have to be hollering it's risky to these awful it
is our children since when the children danger all the leaders good environment they will flourish. a best featuring at heart of a campaign launched by a local catholic movement in protest against gender violence laws which the group claims are discriminatory against men the bus is expected to appear in several other spice cities up until international women's day on march the eighth it also displays the hash tag stop famine azziz referring to women's rights campaigners this spokesman of the group a lot of the campaign told us why they have a problem with certain brands of feminism. gender laws are. laws because discriminate men from women. also the pinnacle discriminate also or. in a sense it's breakin of all of equality this in our constitution what we're asking
is for. this what's always with us or. they're not us. but they are asking for us and. his group is calling for a two thousand and four law on gender violence to be repealed hundred special courts and rehabilitation centers are created to protect women at risk twenty years as have been quick to slam the campaign some of them edited pictures of the bus with their own slogans the main criticism seems to be that using hitler's image was inappropriate the organization behind the ad made headlines first in twenty seventeen when it attempted to launch another bus campaign against a transgender community that ad was aimed at children and for the message that a person can simply change his or her sex however it was suspended and the vehicles were seized body confidence advocate joanne be moralists things the latest campaign
fails to get its point across. azmi think it's quite hard to take a group or an organization seriously when they use someone that has inflicted so much strain or many people that is quite hard to just read the speech on the stand what the organizations trying to heat up present the case that this campaign specially what they're trying to do that i don't need that we're going to think is a bit of an insult to women specially because of what he was about and what he thought about women in particular and us are trying to do and i do agree that something needs to be done. against that violence and it's. men and women domestic violence many when it happened both ways so maybe it's not the right present again do you think it might be insulting to men directly china is giving its all may i say a pub with a massive cash injection well look at what difference it will ache after this.
they should. welcome back to the program china has announced it's looking to increase its military spending by seven point five percent compared with the previous year to over one hundred seventy seven billion dollars for more on this let's cross live time to evangelise he's in beijing for us angelo and let's look at where the an announcement was made and how china's military spending compared to that of other countries. or clearly it's nothing close to what are a lot of the western countries and been spending but to me earlier today this
morning there was thirteen national people's congress was held here in beijing right behind me at the great hall with a number of chinese elite politicians attending there was a draft of pretty much outlining the budget. for last year and the increase of the military spending and there was the chinese officials actually said why they need an increase in the military spending explained that. maintaining reasonable and appropriate group national defense budget is needed to safeguard our national security and is in line the transformation program of china's military. the united states actually has been going in great lengths to show to the world chinese military might and how to impose is dangerous to the rest of the world. we face growing threats from revisionist military tools as well as propaganda to
advance its influence in the united states trying to to modernize and expanding authority considerable nuclear forces. but as we said earlier comparing the two countries the united states and china the united states the chinese actually military spending is the second in the world just behind the united states the united states last year in two thousand and eight actually spent up by about six hundred eighty billion dollars in their national defense and this year president trump is actually pushing for an increase of that to over seven hundred and two thousand and nine. he bonnie and china's defense spending accounted for one point three percent of its gross domestic product in two thousand and eighteen we're doing the same period some major developed countries spent more than two percent of their g.d.p.
on defense. and well this two percent actually kind of rings a bell we remember the presidential has been pressuring its nato allies to increase and to spend more and their and their national defense. our allies are not paying their fair share to get a second paying your bills you have to pay the minimum required two percent of g.d.p. increased defense spending the countries we are defending must pay must pay what they owe. but when we actually have a closer look of the united states military and other countries and china is it's it's a big big gap the united states has reportedly eight hundred military bases across the world and some of them are actually at the doorstep with china and south korea and japan but beijing only has one and that is in djibouti in africa. but as the united states has long been seeing about these military bases the cmos china they
are keeping it for peace. ok evangelos ships us thanks very much for the overview there reporting from beijing. from pentagon security on this michael maloof told us the u.s. is seeking conflict including with china to justify its own military spending. the united states. has a budget that's about five and a half times larger than china it needs conflicts all the time in order to justify that kind of spending china as it improves on its economy and grows stronger and bigger and and seeks to branch out they need a military that can. project power so i envision that conflicts will continue china sees that inevitably it will have it will have run ins with the united states. in areas in different areas of the world and it wants
to improve on its military i think certainly the united states is watching china's economic and military rise it regards it as one of the along with russia as the other main adversary they regard china as the emerging power that to be concerned about. a couple that was separated by world war two what we united after more than fifty in every time the times when russia now married it seems that even hough a century diminished to love is the story. really would you like to get over. to the if. you.
