and now it's one of the poorest countries of the word this morning did a slip of the telling president trump expose his real thoughts on venezuela. an online campaign demands of u.s. drug maker return billions of dollars of the alleged deal to charge for anti h.i.b. medicine. to this thursday a turkish merchant ship and its crew have been hijacked by a group of rescued migrants in the mediterranean vessels now reported be heading to europe. and the u.s. faces isolation could assist them in the u.n. security council after washington recognizes israel's rule over the golan heights a disputed area that straddles syria jordan and lebanon. my country's government considers this decision as a unilateral statement that has neither political nor legal authority. either it

will always be either heard of sovereignty. over good morning a.t.m. thursday the twenty eighth of march live from moscow watching out international with me kevin first in this thirty minute update crisis stricken starving and under a brutal rule venezuela's been described many ways in the western media recently but next as he goes down off reports this morning there's a new label that's been pinned on the south american country to buy president trump . you can't take a man out of business but you can take the business out of the man apparently u.s. president donald trump is living proof of that he's been tailoring this image of corporate shark for decades and is now taking the approach to politics. potential
1:02 am
of venezuela. done properly and with with democracy it would be incredible it was one of the richest companies certainly and now it's one of the poorest gulf countries of the world. a slip of the tongue for sure but could it be a fraud and one well he seems to have appointed venezuela's new c.e.o. a long time ago i mean what else could one why do all be in this i mean as an owner trump would want a man he can trust running this venture it has been an expensive one and the u.s. plans to invest more into it the budget also would continue democracy assistance for venezuela and includes new flexibility to provide additional funds to support a democratic transition or respond to the crisis there including up to five hundred million dollars in transfer authority to support programs managed by the state department and usaid venezuela has proven to be an important asset for trump for sure but after all it's not the only one tells in golf courses are going to manage
1:03 am
themselves so venezuela has to share trump attention it's only natural if the little things escape his gaze like the fact that some of the investment was literally set ablaze by those for whom it was intended they don't take the girl to gain we've sent hundreds of millions of dollars worth of aid to the border he would take the. his people starve than take the american school even from a political standpoint even from a dictator standpoint of the scale it was why dose support is not more duros who said those trucks with aid on fire but perhaps just an honest mistake by an employee right as former duro he did lead a day in except not from the us but from russia and that is one of the obvious differences between trump's companies and sovereign states the latter can do business with. whoever they please but in donald trump said it's all the same
1:04 am
competitors must not take over russia as the get out. the all options are out all just so you understand all options are all another thing how would business is different you can bankrupt it and its workers can at least hope to get paid leave and find employment elsewhere a country that's a slightly different scale. trump is a business representing the capitalist class. and what they want to lay hold in see a normal. trump has absolutely no interest. of the average person. interested in. money. course trump or pence or any u.s.
1:05 am
official or any group of nato generals has absolutely no right to speak on any matter regarding venezuela sovereignty and every one of the actions they have taken are a complete violation of international law and of the un charter. the us drug maker is being accused of inflating prices of an effective hiv drug by thousands of dollars and it turns out the company doesn't even own the patent for the treatment caleb maupin scope the story for you all across the american political spectrum almost everyone seems to agree that prescription drug costs are too high we will never stop fighting for our children our seniors those in need of prescription drugs and working families who cannot afford the escalation of cost the drug lobby is making in an absolute fortune at the expense of american consumers but the big companies couldn't care less about the government's opinion gilead sciences takes the prize among hated pharma giants its new medication for
1:06 am
people who've been infected with hiv is selling for roughly sixteen hundred to two thousand dollars a month needless to say there has been outrage we're here today u.s.c.a. to protest the pricing of their new combination therapy strike though there's no valid reason for it to be priced it's purely greed and profit driven their new h.i.v. drug provide abroad in a whopping three billion dollars last year but they deserve to be compensated. for their creativity and innovation making a new product right well here's the thing it turns out that it was actually us taxpayer money that paid for developing the new drug the scientific research and the testing necessary it was all paid for by the us government however it's guilty of stockholders that get the profits no royalties of any kind are being paid into the u.s. treasury essentially right and i there's a huge problem with access to expose your profile access for profit in the united
1:07 am
states to prevent h.p.v. infection basically there's a lot of low income communities people of color trans women who are not being able to access this drug and a huge part of that is because the company that makes it go in and sciences charge is sixteen hundred dollars for a drug that only costs six dollars now there is similar outrage when gilead started charging over one thousand dollars a pill for its hepatitis c. drug cartel for her. but. now there's another famous case of the chief executive turning pharmaceuticals martin squarely jacking up the price of a jar of pram an empty parasite medication five thousand percent from its initial cost of thirteen fifteen and when pressed in congress to justify his reasoning mr lee seemed to laugh in their faces i want to plead with you to use any remaining influence you have over your former company to press them to lower the price of
1:08 am
these drugs you can look away if you like but i wish you could see the faces of people no matter what let's say. who can get the drugs now justice was served but in another fashion the c.e.o. mr scrawly was convicted on two counts of securities fraud and sent to seven years in prison the price of daraa primero ever has never lowered all of this seems to point to the fact that big pharma has got the u.s. public in a position of weakness for someone infected with hiv trivago it could be life or death needless to say people in such circumstances are pretty ripe for being out but this raises a bigger question how much freedom should influential corporations have especially when they are receiving so much government assistance in order to do their work caleb oppen r.t. new york thanks to small and latest britain conundrum for you the u.k. parliament still failing to find a clear to leave the e.u.
1:09 am
and peace had eight options on the table to choose from a vote wednesday but none of the ideas going to clear majority they included holding a second referendum maybe revoking article fifty maybe staying in the e.u. for two more years. as try to remind ourselves what we've decided to do nothing. at all i think the public will look at on these proceedings in. amazement it's. my will be completely bemused by what's has gone on this is a very serious moment for all of us and we have to reflect the us house of commons has tried to find a way through the threats that crisis over the last few bugs and we have failed. the test of course a very great disappointment that the house has not chosen to find a majority for any proposition it does simplify what's now on offer which really is
1:10 am
the exit in the european union as we've just heard with a deal or with no deal at all that is now what's on offer and if we pressurize a lot of the m.p.'s if point theresa may can bring her deal back to the house which will be seen now as hugely important to do because actually that's going to be the only option and. then leave in european union with harper but you know other developments for you meantime true to most say she's prepared to resign if it means a breakthrough deal getting through according to the story the concession came would have closed doors meeting with conservative m.p.'s and this is said shirkers got what side of it. theresa may is really hell bent in delivering brax it at all cost it seems as she makes it clear that she would be ready to step down more for withdrawal of the dream and finally accepted by the house of commons this
1:11 am
comes on wednesday evening after a meeting with the nineteen twenty two committee which is a parliamentary group of the conservative party at the house of commons where two recent may has said that the deal still needs to get through to deliver bracks it and then she would be ready to go i'm prepared to leave this job earlier than i intended in order to do what is right for our country and our party i ask everyone in this room to back the deal so we can complete our historic duty to deliver on the decision of the british people and leave the european union with a smooth and orderly process but we have seen that reaction to this latest statement from the british prime minister from opposition party leader jeremy who in a tweet said that he believes theresa may has been putting the party's interests ahead of the people's problem and to resume a pledge to turin peace to stand down if they vote for hood deal shows once and for all the chaotic brigs that negotiations have been about party management not
1:12 am
principles or the public interest a change of government can't be a touristic job the people must decide it's been discussed whether should would indeed promise to step down in exchange for support for her largely though the deal actually finally being accepted if you remember this is the same deal that has been voted down twice the house of commons now whether or not this approach of hers is going to work with means to be seen of course but we've seen already from the likes of boris johnson who if you recall had stepped down as foreign secretary over teresa mayes how. handling of rights that he has now indicated that he would support her deal after all the speaker of the house of commons has made it clear yet again on wednesday in parliament that he would not support a third full vote on this deal without. significant changes he
1:13 am
would not want the same deal to be voted on for a third time how all of this is going to shape up we will continue watching back to trees amaze plans economists and. closely and a former social development minister and old mother think the trees are most proposal will not solve the problems with bricks in any way many bricks or tears will be encouraged by her and she is going but the position i think for the day you pay for the past majority of unionists in northern a simply this the do you see house currently on the table. for you is only acceptable whether she stays or whether she goes the problem for them remains that the backstop is deeply deeply problematic the british approach to bring suit has been entirely governed by party politics and this isn't a. conservative party together by proposing
1:14 am
a kind of compromise arrangement that to some extent at least satisfy the hard line breaks it has and also there remain are some sort of bricks and says her own party . well this is just the latest that it was been a real turbulent few weeks as we've been tracking for westminster for the view of the brakes and so i could check up on the boy because like this. yeah yeah loud and clear yeah well we're whew we've been counts out here for ever same for news in the imminent arrival of little baby brags that now little baby brags it's huge eight was meant to be the twenty ninth of march but doctors insist i don't think that maybe to do just that they said there's been a bit of excitement because we saw somebody very gay related to little baby brags that go inside this building which is also vaguely related to
1:15 am
a little baby brags that now we know the mother's been experiencing substantial difficulties high blood pressure severe morning sickness she hasn't been able to keep anything down for months whatever she tries to get through it just keeps getting regurgitated now as you can imagine this is an extremely difficult situation for the mother she never wanted this to begin with then according to all reports the father is trying to disown baby brags that according to one source he was last seen in nice with this trough. that we tarried know if it's going to be a hard or a soft delivery whew there's the chances of a normal elective emergency c. election which is a dangerous procedure and it carries a lot of risk for the was out the baby could just pull out
1:16 am
now some have called for the baby to stay where it is rather than risk that such as look at the crowds out here huge so much anticipation people want to know when the baby brags it is going to be delivered and of course many are concerned about the risk of a still. more about the serious matters as more of a group of migrants are skewed off the libyan coast of seize control of the merchant ship that saved the vessels now reportedly heading north towards malta or italy on wednesday this turkish merchant vessel picked up over one hundred migrants however upon learning that the return to libya may be they decided to take over the ship and set course for europe the island nation of malta is already announced it will not allow that ship to dog and the italian interior ministry minister teo salvini is called the incident wasn't here piracy. it is the first case the first act of piracy of delinquency on the high seas with
1:17 am
immigrants asking for help it was with us who were rescued by this merchant ship flying a foreign flag six miles from tripoli where they hijacked the freighter and saying no do not go south go north and then head north towards malta or lampedusa you know that these people will only see italian territorial waters through the telescope from far away they're not castaways they are pirates if these coalition governments set a goal of curbing migration into the country while the european union has announced it will suspend maritime patrols of rescued thousands of these refugees and asylum seekers instead it plans their patrols and close cooperation with libya which is the main starting point for refugees from language from across the sea from north africa to europe we spoke to london metropolitan university senior research fellow george thinks that the migration crisis is actually nato. well i think it's the the problem the europeans are going to have is that you have this very powerful
1:18 am
forces. within your. welcoming the migrants and i'm sure that the initial response of the multi-source origins will be we are not letting anybody in. but now with. the human rights the amnesty international the george soros crowd will say by god this is inhumane european civilization is coming to an end these are people fleeing from most horrific tortures and. you have to let them in and i think in those circumstances it's going to be very hard for. these and the tally ends to say no and they will probably eventually relent and let them in and here we really need to look very carefully at who is really culpable for. of this migrant crisis it's nato because nato attack libya and gaddafi and even now once this chaos
1:19 am
started nato has done nothing to save europe's borders. the decision to recognize israeli sovereignty over the golan heights a scene the united states roundly condemned your going to merge and say u.n. security council meeting it's a disputed area that straddles israel syria jordan and lebanon which israel annexed from syria one hundred sixty seven even washington's close allies now opposed this opposes latest move. this decision is of critical critical strategic and security importance to the state of israel and the u.s. believes it can contribute to stability the decision by the united states to recognize israeli suffering t. over the golan heights is in contravention of security council resolution four nine seven becky sidesteps not only one of the norms of international law but also the security council resolution is a little should we are concerned that this unilateral decision not only complicates
1:20 am
the prospect to find an egg on your hands of settlement in the middle east by police to instability in the region to look and what my country's government considers this decision as a unilateral statement that has neither helical nor legal authority to decide the destiny of another country's people and land this american movie is dangerous and it represents the blind and and wesson and tendency of this administration to twist international with policies and humiliate the u.s. and its resolutions and they go on to hide either it will always be either heard of sovereign territory we thank the united states for the just the new story problem ation this there plague many others it has taken before shoulder their willingness of the united states to honor reality on the ground instead of recruiting regional stability it's undermining the ability it seems to be. pretty much universally
1:21 am
being criticized it's really undermining our. international are you know and even that you won't surrender are the statements of traditional allies like the u.k. it being very critical of the us position on here is a significant. trend in the increasing isolation of the united states which it's getting closely with israel but it. seems to be little by little the. is traditional european allies. a new poll out suggests the findings of special counsel robert muller an alleged trumpet russia collusions had little effect on americans on sunday the two year long investigation concluded that there was no sign of a conspiracy between the american president and the kremlin according to the poll almost half of those surveyed to some extent believe that trump or his team colluded with russia during the twenty sixteen presidential campaign opinion was
1:22 am
split though if democrats in congress should continue digging into trump or stop it and finally an overwhelming majority say the findings of the miller report hasn't changed their minds at all we spoke to the people the streets of new york. do you still think that trump colluded with russia. yeah yeah he's a traitor i don't trust their report i don't trust any of them because ultimately. it's a conspiracy. to make america races again they're all around trial but somehow trump is that involved it just seems strange to me that people are drawn i can because he's a rich guy well what does the media have been saying about it for the past few years it's always been a clue that he's definitely clued into these everything loaded and therefore comes out he has occluded everyone still believing that so happened the mean stream press has completely given up on its standards in reporting this story in the new york from the new york times to the washington post to c.n.n. and especially in this in d.c.
1:23 am
one of the other news networks and he have just been all over at each other trying to beat each other with the latest rumor and skin a minor ring on. including this specially the russian collusion think so it's on the news every night russian collusion russian collusion and people are watching at four to six hours a day it's mind numbing it's the end of your work day you come home and you watch that with a beer and you know it just sinks into your skull it's propaganda. the japanese government is pressing ahead with plans to relocate a u.s. military base in okinawa despite fears local opposition there last month residents voted in a non-binding referendum against relocating a facility close to a fishing village over environmental and safety concerns seems only nineteen percent voted in favor of moving their base to a new location away from a densely populated city hosts nearly half of all american troops stationed in japan locals have been outraged by the behavior of u.s.
1:24 am
troops in the past have been involved in sexual assaults and killings. just. add a rock personally know of a case that is ongoing right now and it's a child on child sexual assault case you. actually hear an alkie now and it's a it's a teenage child who has. allegedly sexually assaulted sexually abused multiple young children. i'm talking almost
1:25 am
a dozen at this point and the justice system the military justice system cannot handle anything with juveniles they're not equipped they aren't set up to do so so the theories and these three young very young children are just heartbroken and out of loss and just trade gripping at the street this seems trying to. find out what they can deal to to get any kind of justice for their children aged perry who heard from before there's a co-founder of a kusa group called survivors united with sexual assault victims can find help to reporting on assaults and cope with the aftermath the group also helps to contact members of congress of the victim feels that the case has been swept under the rug he's calling for all victims of sexual abuse by u.s. servicemen not to remain silent. it's human nature in any institution in any culture and there's going to be bad apples and unfortunately there are bad apples
1:26 am
in the united states military just like there are in any other military in the world and. if these crimes are committed against foreign nationals in whatever country they are our military station and i want them to know that they have a voice that these these survivors of abuse sexual abuse by our service members it occurs to have a voice and that they have somewhere to go and that they can pursue justice just because they were sexually abused by a united states military member doesn't mean that they have to stay silent if they don't want to you and i do understand that not everyone wants to pursue justice but at least they can know what their options are what their rights are and then they can if they decide to they can pursue justice and. cannot be scared to do so no apologies for calling a good part of a cause we're talking about a lady that has the update so far this thursday morning by side for headlines as
