since america's first black president was in south africa delivering a lecture in memory of thought country's first black president now barack obama's nelson mandela lecture was full of hope for the future he couldn't help but mention the despair of the present strongman leaders with little regard for truth all the facts i wonder who he had in mind i'm phil galen and belive this is the day. people just make stuff up. they just make stuff up. but i don't watch the frame among political leaders were there cardinal law and. i believe in nothing not dollars but. i believe in a vision shared by god the king. abraham lincoln. i believe in
a vision of equality and justice and freedom and racial democracy built on the promise that all people are created equal but evil reminds us that no one is born hating another person because of the color of the skin or his background or is religious people must learn to hate. anything to learn to hate. they can be taught to love. for love comes more naturally to the human heart. but before we bring you have that the current u.s. president donald trump has paid a spectacular turnaround on remarks he made at the summit with russia's vladimir putin speaking at a cabinet meeting he said he now says russia did metal and the u.s. election and that he misspoke yesterday when he said he saw no reason for russia to interfere clear. i have full faith and support for america is great in the regions agencies always have and i have felt very strongly that well
russia's actions had no way at all on the outcome of the election let me be totally clear in saying that and i've said this many times i accept our intelligence communities conclusion that russia's meddling in the two thousand and sixteen election took place could be other people also. a lot of people out there there was no collusion at all. we're clear about there was no collusion let's get more from did abuse a washington bureau chief an example of welcome alexander this is not a president known for backing down so what is this about. i think that was the harsh criticism the president has been facing since jacintha with blood in the putting criticism most notably within his own republican
party with republican lonely occurs describing war today so and helsinki. seemed disgraceful and shameful and with republican leaders in congress trying to distance themselves from this president and tromso all of this on t.v. we know that he likes to look good on t.v. we know that he seems to be obsessed with optics and this is actually not the first time that he backed down it was the case when he's administration implemented its policy of separating migrant kids from their parents at the gas mexican border and and after harsh criticism from within the republican party on this the president change this policy so let's hear more from the statement that was
issued here is on claims of russian interference in the sixty election. it should have been obvious i thought it would be obvious but i would like to play it just in case it wasn't in the key sentence in my remarks i said the word would instead of wood. and should have been i don't see any reason why i wouldn't or why it would be russian so. just to repeat the word would instead of word. the sentence. and i thought i would be maybe a little bit unclear on the transcript or on the actual video. should have been and i don't see any reason why it wouldn't be russian. ok so now we're all clear about how all the president's critics reacting to this i don't think that he's going to convinced his fiercest critics because they are not buying
this especially his explanation that their reason for this misunderstanding was he nice use. negative but it will be crucial how the republican party is going to react whenever they would like to have full confrontation of what this president or not i would assume there are not interested in that because they are facing a very difficult mid-term election in november and therefore they would like to avoid and they think that would mean that they are risking a majority in congress. face a lot of criticism for the helsinki summit in the first place he faced criticism for the way he performs yesterday he's going to get more for doing this about face is this a tool damaging to him. yes i think so i think that the damage has been done and i think that this president seems to have lost his credibility
a swell among many a lawmakers here in the united states because he tans not to tell the truth he tends to use lies to present his policy and therefore it is so difficult to believe and to think that he is credible and to believe what he's saying we're talking two thousand joining us on xander in washington. former u.s. president barack obama has been paying tribute to nelson mandela as an event to commemorate what would have been the former south african leaders one hundredth birthday in his the highest profile speech since leaving office he described as one of history's true giants he urged people around the world to emulate the figurehead despite uneven progress in south africa itself. most blacks in
south africa live in townships like this one. a fish see a letter is hoping that barack obama's visit here will show the world that south africa is still a developing country that feed yes we care it was like. everybody to give that you can do use the same applies to nelson mandela. around ten thousand people listen to obama speech in a stadium in johannesburg. the tickets were free a famous managed to get one yellow came to embody the universal aspirations of this possessed people all around the world their hopes for a better life. and perhaps shared by many here affair says obama is a man after his own heart especially when he speaks about dashed hopes. it is
a plain fact that racial discrimination still exists in both the united states and south africa that the accumulated disadvantages of years of institutionalized oppression of created yawning disparities of face and that's a says inequality has to be eliminated once and for all he hopes that obama uses his political clout to hopes of africa achieve that the as he had moved from journalists to philip divest he's an associate editor at business insider south africa and joins us from johannesburg welcome to day w. what else i could you tell us about suppose it's obama's message today. well there is one clip that i see is getting a lot of traction both united states and some other countries with strong flavors of like it's all it's excess of that that is a bomb a saying we need to be open minded in our politics we'd be open minded to talk to people we disagree with maybe they change on their minds maybe they change our
minds and the one trip specifically says it's not that we can say that some people don't have standing to tool cunt issues just because they are white and just because they are male that they can't talk about some issues and it's interesting to see how that is on both sides of the ocean that seems to be quite a popular sentiment one of the more popular clips coming out of that speech today. and during this this speech of we didn't have to look very far for references to mr obama successor as us president let's just take a look at a clip you have to believe in fact. today without. there is no basis for cooperation. if i say this is a podium and you said this is an elephant. it's going to be hard for us to cooperate. for diversity in johannesburg where there are many trump references
they were very very very different says not all of them that's funny of course obama spoke about xenophobia and the rise of nationalism that certainly sounded like a race friends to some of the trump policies and he spoke about say communities and of our politicians used to at least be ashamed when they were called lying and now on so much and he spoke about the rise of the strong man and the age of the strong man coming back all of those certainly i think too many people sounding like eric francis to trump without if it directly attacking donald. let's hear some more from of the former u.s. president on some disquieting similarities between south africa and the united states it is a plain fact that racial discrimination still exists in both the united states and south africa i and it is also a fact that the accumulated disadvantages of years of institutionalized oppression
have created yawning disparities in income and in wealth and education and in health in personal safety and access to credit this is where you are supposed to those of us outside south africa who had such hopes for you this is one hundred years since nelson mandela was born in the twenty's since he stepped down as president how have life chances of black south africans changed certainly not so not that's universally recognized as. a lot of black south africans has not. at all underlined that the public wanted out today and he say to that it's quite astonishing that this day and age he has to stand up an ace say and i think he meant this to both the united states and south africa that people of all equal and that they have same in a deal of rights when they are all and that this does not seem to be accepted yet in south africa certainly we have that undercurrents the off racism we still have
whites dominance of many industries and many professions that we have a land question that which is being fiercely debated at the moment because land reform has not be nearly fussed enough since the advent of democracy and these phony problems that seem to have no immediate solution. so by mr obama himself what is his appeal have what sort of appeal does he have amongst south africans. he is an extremely popular figure an absolute populist figure in a way that not even nelson mandela is anyone else in mandela now is seen by some and sold out didn't push the films or shins far enough when he was how barack obama on the other side is just shining in comparison donald trump he is inspirational before his speech parts of that crowd was chauncy yes we can yes we can that same
sort of youth oriented he won't keep politics in the united states is something that i think still resonates in south africa years a strong powerful black leader who charted a new cold school is country these are all things that south africans really enjoy seeing even if it is outside of our own unique it all it was good talking to thanks for joining us for the vets from a business insider south africa. well only something we all know also among those birth we asked young people across africa well the on here part i can means to them . down. for you now can learn to love me i've been bold. i was hard.
i'll challenge the next generation i believe are. critical to as an individual he has inspired me. to last for i don't know where we'll be today. taking the pill i really disagree. here but he. wasn't just playing on the people who. run the lead to me. monday looks to me he's just a little to follow. yeah. someone. looking at the. one with the sash. on the. person. so it's good to stand up for what you believe in it we.
would leave it at that but i mean. look. i. united nations migration agency says almost fifty one thousand migrants of cross the mediterranean to europe so far this year that's less than half the number who made that dangerous journey during the same period last year despite the reduction in numbers plenty of people still dream of a new life in your state or lose family fish are reports from tunisia lots of people who failed to make the crossing ones haven't given up trying but for others there is no second chance. hardly anyone visits this place on the tunisian coast others sent here are do remain so women children and young men they
drowned in the mediterranean chasing an uncertain dream a dream off life in europe their stories lie buried with them in these makeshift graves no names no identities no headlines across from the sea over there in europe the focus has shifted from whole to help migrants too hard to keep migrants here. he wants to give them dignity sham citizen is a fisherman here near to tourist hot spot of sadducees he has buried the remains of three hundred people to stop the crossings europe has proposed the creation of so-called disembarkation platforms in north africa they are migrants would be able to apply for asylum. isn't impressed. with the missions europe doesn't care about these people whether they are alive or dead building reception centers isn't a solution instead europe should give people the wealth that was stolen from them.
a beach near to cemetery this is where a fisherman discovered the washed up bodies. wants to find them before the local children i'm on my way to a nearby migrant center where some of those rescued find temporary refuge there i meet the desha from the democratic republic of congo four months she was a sex slave in libya she tells me so. when they discovered that i was pregnant they let me go. to number one i don't want to stay here engine is here i want to go to europe. tunisia has no functioning asylum system and it has to not only deal with migrants passing through but also the increasing numbers of its own youth who dream of a brighter future these young men died trying to reach italy wooden seven thousand tunisians tried to cross the mediterranean last year while i was one of them he
invites me to his home to share his story. and hurt them of a man. is no hope here the dead nor alive it's all the same we don't have any jobs or future nothing in this country kills our dreams that's why i want to escape. the well survive several boat accidents in the mediterranean but he's undeterred he wants to try again. if i stay here in tunisia i have zero hope. in europe so i at least have a chance to hit the. but europe doesn't want to take migrants like well so who exactly is responsible for those rescue at sea. we have to stop treaty migrants like hostages and using them as political leverage we have to stop treating them as a tool with which to get money from europe and we have to be humane with them and
guarantee them no rights or freedom of movement. tunisia's government has repeatedly said it does not want to be the gate keeper for migrants trying to reach europe caught in limbo thousand see trying to lock on the mediterranean as the only option despite the dangers. the european union and japan have just signed a trade deal that will create the world's biggest open economic area the economic partnership agreement is huge come into effect next year will cover around six hundred million people across both markets it's the e.u.'s biggest ever trade agreement and the moves nearly all of the trade tariffs between the two regions. a grand found fare for an historic agreement. as the e.u. and japan signed the world's largest ever trade deal in tokyo.
to do signal of the new economic partnership agreement is a landmark moment for globe is that if we used together economy is that the cone for the third of the world's g.d.p. and home to over six hundred million people. who talks got off to a difficult start and took a full four years but as u.s. president donald trump ratcheted up the protectionist rhetoric over the last one and a half years the negotiators set about sealing the deal in double quick time. money again they. are apparently rising concerns about protectionism globally. within this context i believe it is extremely meaningful that japan and the e.u. are sending a message to the world i think about the importance of free and fair trade or more like this and enough. japanese automobiles currently place ten percent e.u.
import tariffs they will now be completely done away with for the europeans the food industry is the big winner of the deal it will now be much easier for e.u. producers to export cheese chocolate and me to japan a nation of prosperous consumers the e.u. expects food exports alone to jump by at least one hundred eighty percent that'll create new jobs and boost g.d.p. . the message to washington is loud and clear you build walls you lose from the free trade is a win win for all participants. of world's biggest let's get more from daniel windsurfer leader of the business world to daniel. why they've done this well i don't know phil if you know the name of the elephant in the room but his name is donald trump and his protectionist policies such as these two partners the e.u. and japan feel more and more strange from washington i'm worried about the protectionist rhetoric coming out of and in fact he heads dire now direct action
from donald trump that clubbing together their funding opportunities together and if you look at it from a purely economic perspective from the e.u. side you know japan is a major opportunity because they're like the fourth biggest economy in the world and the only the seventh biggest export part of the e.u. so there is work to be done and that's why they set about making this trade so everyone can make some money what difference is this going to make in my life. well i don't know about your life specifically phil but the theory goes that by boosting e.u. exports to japan by a third which is what the plan is more money is going to flow into the e.u. and that could go into your pocket of a pocket of tax man to improve infrastructure in the e.u. or whatever it might be at the moment six hundred thousand jobs inside the e.u. depend on trade with japan we're expecting more jobs to be created as a result of this because the trade towers come down we sell them or we can generate more jobs again. and i've been hear you talking about this that and that i
mentioned at the start the show this is the a cheese deal why will basically i mean that the tariffs are coming down across the board it's not just cars and cheese but that's where each side stands to gain the most so japan has a very developed car industry but they really want to have access to the e.u. market to sell their cars into the e.u. now that ten percent tariff is gone they'll be able to do that much easier now looking at it the other way round the e.u. wants to sell its consumer products like its agricultural products into japan at the moment for example there's a forty percent tariff on cheese going into japan it's a big opportunity for farmers in the e.u. to sell more of their stuff abroad the thing is quite interesting because of course the japan huge car exports are but then so is the european union that's right well we are seeing more of a comparative advantage there what what does japan do better than for example germany becoming a factor does well japan is very good at highly efficient production lowering the
cost and they'll be able to sell the mid price and low price cars into the european union but what germany does really well as a massive common factor they make luxury cars which the world wants to buy so the likes of diamond b.m.w. they're looking forward to getting access to the japanese market so there is this advantages to vote. the way you view yourself and so the way that they sell it this is this is a good thing and everyone's got a way and it still has to be ratified by both sides is there likely to be opposition well we have seen opposition even kind of coming out of nowhere in the past when it comes to the seated deal for example between the e.u. and canada wallonia a region inside belgium that noted which no one had heard of they put kicked up a fuss and put in their veto which overrode what the parliament in belgium wants to do so with seats there was lots of negotiations drilling down into that and now
it's only we've seen have come out against seem to say that they're worried about what will happen to their farmers and their protected agricultural products within within italy and that has already gone through the entire mill so whether these kinds of traps lie in the way for the e.u. japan deal we have to see what regions kick up a fuss so very briefly in fact let's leave it there. of daily business it's very much. the day is nearly double but as ever come come the surgeon continues amaya find some trace of iraq's news or opt. to use a hash tag of the day i'm going to. look through.
