thanks for joining us this hour. continuing to grapple with the economic crisis power outages adding to its woes the country's opposition leaders calling for a fresh wave of protests this comes after the u.s. president again stressed his opposition to the government even accidentally branded venezuela explains. you can take a man out of business but you can't take 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 the potential of venezuela. don't 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 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 b. 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 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 or take gate they've sent hundreds of millions of dollars worth of aid to the border he would take the aid they'd rather have his people starve than take the i really get screwed even from a political standpoint even from a dictator standpoint i don't think that's good it was why dose support is not more duros who set those trucks with aid on fire but perhaps just an honest mistake by an employee right as former duro he did lead aid 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 competitors must not take over the years to get out.
the all options are out all just so you understand all options are off. another thing how a 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 in the us and what they want to lay hold in see an enormous resource well trump has absolutely no interest in the lives of the average person. interested in. money. a course or pence or any group of nato generals has absolutely no right to speak on any matter regarding our sovereignty and every one of the actions they
have taken are a complete violation of international law and of the un charter. the turkish ship allegedly seized by migrants in the mediterranean has now arrived in malta local security forces earlier boarded the small tanker and guided it to a port near the capital of the letter or the one hundred migrants are on board including twelve children refugees were picked up on wednesday by the merchant vessel at sea when they learned they were being returned to libya they hijacked the ship and set course for europe four people have reportedly been arrested italian interior minister called the incident piracy. you believe. it is the first case the first act of piracy of delinquency on the high seas with immigrants asking for help but who were rescued by this merchant ship flying a foreign flag six miles from tripoli they hijacked the freighter and saying no do
not go south go north they're not castaways they are pirates is a coalition government has set a goal of curbing migration into the country while the european union has announced it will suspend maritime patrols that of rescue thousands of refugees and asylum seekers instead of plans air patrols and close coordination with libya that's the main starting point for refugees and migrants trying to cross the sea from north africa. to europe we spoke to on the metropolitan university senior research fellow george somewhere who thinks that the migration crisis is nato's responsibility. well i think it's the the problem the europeans are going to have is that you have this very powerful forces. within your. welcoming the migrants i'm sure of that the initial response of the maltese all storage is will be we are not letting anybody in. but.
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 other and rape you have to let them in and i think in those circumstances it's going to be very hard for. these and the talents to say no. an online campaign has been launched against the u.s. drug maker accused of inflating the prices of an hiv drug by thousands of dollars it turns out the company doesn't even own the patent for the treatments and has the story. 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 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 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 guilty ads pricing of their new. combination therapy strike though there's no valid reason for it to be price it's purely greed and profit driven by their new h.i.v. drug provide a broad 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 in there is
a huge problem with access to expose your profile access for profit in the united 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 science is 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 anti parasite medication five thousand percent from its initial cost of thirteen fifteen and when pressed in congress to justify his reasoning mr scraggly seemed to laugh in their faces i want to plead with you to use any
remaining influence you have over your former company to pressure them to lower the price of these drugs you can look away if you like but i wish you could see the faces of people no matter what misreads says. 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 darrent for him however 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. british m.p.'s will return to westminster on friday to debate a motion relating to brick sits room was a circulating online that the reason why is the voice could be put to the test for a third time this comes off to a decision clouded another vote on wednesday on top sions to try to get the brakes a process on the straight and narrow. included a second referendum revoking article fifty even staying in the e.u. for a further two years. president try to remind ourselves of what we've decided to do nothing was i think the public will look at on these proceedings in. amazement it's. my will be completely bemused by what has gone on this is a very serious moment for all of us and we have to reflect that this house of commons has tried to find a way through the threats that crisis over the last few months and we have feel. it
is of course a very great disappointment that the house is not chosen to find a majority for any proposition it does simplify what is now one offer which really is a big city in the european union as we've just heard with a deal all with no do it at all that is now what's on offer and we pressurize a lot of the m.p.'s course if point theresa may can bring her no deal back to the house which will be seated now as huge really important to do because actually that's going to be the only option isn't. there and leave in european union he said with the hopper but this came as the reason may announced her intention to step down as prime minister but only after she's the liver to bricks it according to downing street the p.m.'s concession came during a closed door meeting with conservative m.p.'s. 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 bracks set of the u.k.'s opposition leader jeremy corbyn was quick to react to the news saying may's proposal was about party management and not in the best interests of british citizens he also added that a switch of government should be left to the public to decide minister we asked people in london what they think about the prospect of the reason may be stepping down. i don't think it matters which monkeys in charge and six frankly i don't think it makes any difference column of the century itself whether it's actually sitting in the p.m.'s chair is going to be dealing with that hopefully she will resign. when it becomes clear that we really. knew we just don't want you and so see the directions here prime minister. she's going to resign if she can get a meaningful vote shrew i don't mean
a meaningful that's going to go through so what's she going to be she going to resign or was she not no one knows it's chaos. and economists go and joins are nelson mccausland a former social development minister in northern ireland think that the reason why is proposed resignation won't solve the brics crisis. many tears will be encouraged by her in the interim she is going but the position i think for the day you pay for the past majority of you know most northerners simply this the. 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 british it has been entirely governed by party politics this is. the conservative party together by proposing a kind of compromise arrangement that to some extent at least satisfy the hard line
and also the remainder some sort of bricks and says. see this is just the latest in what's been a pretty turbulent few weeks in westminster for alternative view on the brics saga check out this episode of. latest program in case you missed. yeah yeah loud and clear yeah well what you we've been camped out here for. three news in the imminent arrival of baby brags that now little baby brags it's due date with meant to be that when the ninth of march but dr has been. happy to do just that he said there's been a bit of excitement because we saw somebody very gay related to a little baby brags that go inside this building which is also vaguely related to 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 of course. reports the father is trying to disown baby brags that according to one source he was last seen in me with this trough. that we don't know if it's going to be a hard or a soft delivery who does the chances of a normal elective emergency c. election which is a dangerous procedure and it carries a lot of risk for the worst outcome the baby could just pull out now some have called for the baby to stay where it is rather than risk that such just look at the crowds out here whew so much anticipation people want to know when
baby brags it is going to be delivered and of course many are concerned about the risk of a still. the dark side of america's presence in japan and just the other wife of a u.s. marine is giving the rape victims that a voice will be back in just a few moments time. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. period dramatic. i don't see how. very critical. you sit down and talk. these
private companies that have got a lot of v.c. funding are ready to go public this year i saw the less they're all going out of forty fifty sixty seventy billion dollars valuation so the prediction here is that it will be the this cycle you're going to. like two thousand and one. due to the fact that there's nothing to support the valuations of these companies very quickly. program discontent is continuing to grow in japan over the authorities decision to greenlight the relocation of a u.s.
base in okinawa the fact overwhelmingly reject the initiative in a referendum opposition to america's presence in the audience has been steadily increasing jews want to go widespread criminal activity by military personnel including sexual assaults we spoke to an american woman helping the victims. they're raising that i wanted to create survivors' units because when my in our family was going through we went through our so lost i didn't know where to turn for help i didn't know who to trust i didn't know and you know what answer what questions to ask i didn't know what to search for i feel like the military justice system is it antiquated system and it has not caught up with the times today to be able to accommodate the cases that we're seeing and to adjudicate successful age adjudicate cases that we're seeing but this is this is not a negative light that's being shown on our military and it's a positive that we we don't want this behavior happening of
a photon limited to bases located in a densely populated area hosts they haul for all american troops stationed in the country locals have been outraged by the behavior of u.s. troops who've been involved in numerous crimes over the years including breakers and kidnappings and u.s. and japan have been locked in debates over whether to relocate the base more than twenty years many want to off the island so all together.
it's human nature in any institution in any culture and there's going to be bad apples and unfortunately there are bad apples 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 to be able boyce that these these survivors of abuse sexual abuse by our service members it occurs have a voice and that they have somewhere to go and they can pursue justice just because they were sexually abused by the 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. if they decide to they can pursue justice and. cannot be scared to do so. a new poll suggests the findings of special counsel robert mueller
all alleged trumped russia collusion has had little effect on americans suddenly the two year logan west occasion concluded that there was no sign of a conspiracy between the american president and the kremlin according to the poll most heart of those surveyed to some extent believe that trump or his team did good with russia during the twenty sixteen presidential campaign opinion was split on the question if the market should or shouldn't continue digging into trump losing those ties with russia and finally overwhelming majority say the findings of the report hasn't changed their minds at all spoke directly to some people on the streets of new york. do you still think that trump colluded with russia. yeah yeah eva trader i don't trust airport 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 involved it just seems strange to me that people are gone 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 to his ethnic alluding to these everything loaded and therefore comes out he has acquitted everyone still believing that it still happened in the mainstream press as completely given up and its standards in reporting this story i mean the new york from the new york times to washington post to c.n.n. and especially m s n b c one of the other news networks and they have just been all over each other trying to beat each other with the latest rumor and scandal mongering on. including this specially the russian collusion thing 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 workday you come home and you watch that with a beer and you know it is sinks into your skull it's propaganda. well there's the news for this hour join us again in thirty minutes for the latest global news

hello and welcome to worlds apart the ukrainian presidential elections are just days away with what are eligible voters still undecided on them to support with thirty nine candidates in their race is the choice too broad or perhaps too constricted while to discuss that i'm now joined by a prominent ukrainian politician. if you like mr troup so good to see you thank you very much for this opportunity to talk to you good afternoon but dunham keeps cohen is not on the. key of international a sociology insitute published its poll which says over twenty four percent of
ukrainians are still undecided who to vote for what is the reason for the thoughts what do you think about that you know and it's really going on with. my mind. i mean this is something quite natural this is a natural reaction to all. repair ukraine and other kids i mean the president show . it's pretty. a lot of. means are applied it never happened before a press on the sco neither of you in a presidential race nor a parliamentary race where the mood of the movement but you could through one little bit mean i can understand why the people decide that they want to have objective for information they get lost they do not know whom to vote for they do not know how to vote but it's when the election do you. refer to the right figure that's true. we have as his. many people undecided but it will continue to be the
case right until the day of the election was not problem when yup it also looks like ukraine's western. also decided on the same because none of the candidates have been able to get the west's indorsement so far because the choice is too broad or there's any other reason for that why western partners of ukraine are so undecided because they were not like that five years ago there was no situation today is very different. talk about the second round of election only folk and it is have the chances to pass selenski. these four candidates. you mentioned the opinion polls so these that your sociology but this very morning one of the forums. social sciences centers published results of opinion poll shows
a. boy with a very small difference between them in terms of voice and. this. is also trailing behind but ever so slightly today there is a battle for the second place and the battle the struggle will be very tight. for reasons why there was hasn't decided. to support. what i think the us has decided but it keeps silent about that. is as follows. there are three candidates in place as a bat. one candidate. these four is associated with the southeast. region of ukraine. she is all for
magic normal relations with russia that is boy i knew well different from the other three and that is why he receives no attention from the why sleeping is probably the reason why the west keeps silent some say they. are ok with any of the three cow to decide that is why they do not want to. by choosing some. particular candidate. because if they place their bets on one and the other wins that would be a problem i think that's the reason we. just mentioned the west or the united states are probably already they probably already know. she's in the athenian right now israel is have any problem in tory election campaign you have a daughter the situation is intense there's board it's a little those.
