if you can't live without your smartphone. your tomatoes the supermarket. and as we go about our daily lives human rights often the last thing on your minds . the invisible hand of slavery in the twenty first century starting december second on d. w. . the philippines president. crew need for us president trump no after the love song what do you two strong on leaders in their first ever meeting what do they talk about iran that both of them have for
a son who they consider as not their best friend barack obama. tonight from the bullies pulpit of power the issues that they would like to forget the grudges that they can't i'm bored go off in berlin this is the day. there was no mention of human rights it was no mention of action to give feelings. we want our partners in the region to be strong independent and satellites to know one. relationship appears to be very warm and a friend pete. we've had a great relationship this is been very successful. with the president of the pick who we most of explaining. also coming up
america's greenest governors on how to terminate any trunk threat to the paris climate agreement. but we should take politics out of the whole thing and do what is right the fundamental message it bawn that we have come to deliver is that donald trump cannot stop us in this is the most important thing that we wanted the world to know and here. we begin the day in asia with america first everything else a distant second u.s. president donald trump is wrapping up his first trip to asia it has been a marathon two weeks of red carpets state dinners compliments aplenty and criticisms she went far between and china and the philippines the world saw a u.s. a president respectful perhaps even deferential to men he considers to be his strong arm equals yet the leader of the free world said nothing about human rights abuses in china or reports that do tear taze drug war has allowed police to kill
thousands with impunity or the big takeaway here u.s. president trump has told asia america is open for business we're closed if you have any complaints. at a gathering swirling with controversy a moment that revealed a feared president's softer side. the . rhetoric a detective pulled out all the stops at a gala to open the summit on sunday. on the plane. that it is believed that got out is. the orders of the monday will be noted state. that some say detectives not the only one hitting the wrong note ahead of the summit filipina rights groups urged trump to confront detecting over his war on
drugs a crackdown that's left thousands dead over the past year. but if there was any criticism from trunk it was not on display in manila trump showered his host a self-proclaimed killer with compliments. and i want to thank you for your incredible hospitality and the show last night the talent at that show i assume mostly from the philippines was fantastic thank you. the camaraderie did not go down well with everyone police used water cannon to scare off angry protesters. we believe that that meeting was not making any benefits for the filipino people but will die there worsen the human rights situation in the philippines and try give it would be to put out a spot they could not put it it could have been shocking the white house said the two men's meeting focused on trade and fighting the so-called islamic state it said human rights came up briefly during discussions on the philippines fight against
illegal drugs. i'm joined now at the big table by a tyson barker he's director of the aspen institute here in berlin he also worked at the u.s. state department is good to have you back on the show i'd like to start with the spokesperson for mr du charity what he said today about how both presidents were able to find something that they have in common take a listen the. relationship appears to be very warm and very friendly. they've been very kind bit in their dealings and it's very apparent that both of them have a person who they consider as not their best friend they have similar feelings towards u.s. president barack obama. so what is that is that the ghosts of the rock obama in the heads of these two presidents i mean why you said even a subject of a meeting this i mean you know i think that this is an artful way of saying that
they have a lot of issues in common beyond just the antipathy to the previous president they're both people who believe in strongly executives that sometimes take and would like to take in the case of detect a do take extrajudicial measures in the enforcement of law in order polybius measures would not be something for the filipino courts to work out of course but that is been a heavy criticism of the international human rights community and civil society in the philippines there is a sense that trump which is he had that kind of ability in the execution of his own counterterrorism and law enforcement policy at home you know he does feel a little bit constrained by these strong independent in institutions at home and that's something of their really conveyed spirits i mean do you think you look at someone like you territory or even the chinese president with a little bit of envy i mean i think that that could be the case you know he
clearly feels a level of personal comfort with these type of people and the reason is because he brings into the presidency an experience from the private sector his experience where a kind of authoritarianism was not only accepted but was kind of his means of management that's right and so he sees that in the public sphere and he says why can't i create that he has of course this pesky long developed system of norms that independent institutions in the united states first and foremost the constitution that does constrain that kind of action. staying kind of with with the bully mentality for a moment would you consider what trump and the north korean leader kim jong il and what they've been trading in the last couple of days after the north korean foreign ministry called trump and i'm quoting here and owed lunatic. the u.s. president hit back on the show you what he tweeted he wrote why would kim jong un insult me by calling me old when i would never call him short in fact oh well i try
so hard to be his friend and maybe some day that will happen. well the first thing i would say is clearly president trump is taking advantage of the two hundred eighty character limit that he now has on the one hundred one hundred forty characters but you know talking about this kind of personal relationship i thought these authoritarians to be my friend you know this goes back to vladimir putin he said something very simply i mean the truth is that these personal insults are kind of ephemera i mean it's rhetorical ephemera the danger here is in the policy and the escalation the good thing we see in the case of this visit is although there have been maneuvers that have taken place by aircraft carriers in the region they do have the support and full backing of u.s. allies japan south korea and australia so that's a good sign i think we should be careful to get too distracted by the name calling yeah exactly i mean it's amazing that there is this name calling going on but when
we look at the entire trip is there anything of substance that was achieved i mean can the president take something you know in his pocket back home and say look this is what i got well i mean this is in his kind of style he has said he will reveal the big prize once he returns and we don't know what that big prize would be there have been some cosmetic economic agreement deals signed procurement deals in china but the real takeaway from this trip of course is the reception of u.s. leadership particularly in the trans-pacific partnership those eleven countries are going to move forward without the united states and then the role that china has played you know they have positioned themselves basically to be the guarantor of the liberal and that means open market you know free trade order they say we believe in multilateralism we believe in rule of law and as the u.s. response we're going to take that place do you think that trump has just left asia and has left the message america is where transactions are where business your
human rights abuses are no that's that's been a big part of his message just consistently for the past. and months i think everybody needs to recognize that democracy and values are not our deemphasized in this administration to the favor of you know economic policy good deals and what he sees as u.s. security so i some barter with the aspen institute's here in berlin and i says always thank you very much thank you. the terror that engulfed paris on this night two years ago one hundred thirty people died in coordinated attacks across the french capital it was the deadliest attack ever on french soil correspondent elizabeth it was one of the first to report to the world about the chaos and the horror of that night.
the first reaction ok great you know what to say we don't know whether this is terrorism well over the lobbying of greeny never stop the call to filter. they're putting paid to this kind of equivocation. the of this hostage taking it very obvious that the attack took all the way. the weapon if you. know the hunting weapons but. the feeling is that this is a kind of attack that actually the fight security services were waiting for. this is why so many public places school official buildings embassies are being protected in paris and have been hit in january unfortunately it seems that it has finally happened tonight. it's still difficult to listen in to remember the evening we're joined now by correspondent elizabeth. cohen is but it's good to have you on the show your assessment and your assessment so early that evening was
unfortunately spot on there really was a feeling in france that an attack of that magnitude was inevitable wasn't there yes this is the show you do a killing we you were latino. that had been threats that had been taking anybody not taking them seriously was in direction. and i'm not condemning anyone because there was a great deal to. take in to try these people what was not found out in time was exactly when they would not we've heard a lot in the last two years about the permanent changes in france as a result of the but the attacks what in your opinion what has changed per minute. strangely enough some things that the split feeling in this country then where you will find feet people in the country and i think they're half and half who think
that the chance the country has changed and other people who will think the country has not changed enough because we're still not facing this in the sort of mature way say life is different and this is a state of wool and there's an element of yes this is going to happen to us that's what yes we are now used to having soldiers in the streets and the soldiers themselves being overused or exhausted because there aren't enough of them at the same time we muddle through and there's a kind of disconnect between the sort of. the great game of foreign policy which was played by us through a lot as laid down by mature mccoll and the feelings of everyday french people who do not think that the enemy is being named. and what about the role of this here my corner was was his rise to power and the changes that he's made in the walls there was that all enabled by the attacks two years ago.
when he made the change he would not have thought of that change himself because we had an emergency law and some of it was passed into into all the way the patriot act was was passed into law in america so that. efficient fight against terrorism was was made possible in france and to be quite honest there have been protests about the palace given to the police but you will find a broad majority will be on the street because majority to say we understand that this is completely necessary and this is what has to happen. pretty easy to that. i'm going to have to ask you when you know when you look at the reports from two years ago when you you hear what and how you were reporting the events that night i mean what goes through your mind when you when you think back to that night two years ago when all that's happened sense.
you know you get back to this feeling in which you feel that you're under attack and. i think we actually are constantly under attack and there have been attempts that have been stopped and we don't even know. but certainly that was also the sort of feeling that the nation was was holding together and i'm afraid that the nation now is not holding together the way we did after shoddy and doing away with it after the botak law and i would i would place actually the movement when we start being all of one mind at the time when almost simultaneously you had the attack that nice with a with a truck that. rammed into the crowd and killed about eighty people and the attack against all the how mel this priest. screwed by a young man who'd grown up next door and now the whole thing became complicated and muddled and politicians say you've got you've got to say that this is
a home bride you cannot and we got to pay very attention that we do not turn into you know a nation of intolerant people and i think that the incumbent feeling of a majority of the french is we're not naming things anymore. he's a bit more correspondent in paris on this but we appreciate your time tonight and we appreciate you sharing your memories and your insights from a fateful night two years ago in paris thank you. well france has been remembering the victims of those attacks on paris two years ago french president in my new micron's spend considerable time today meeting with the survivors mccrone and former president francois hollande and then released balloons into the air in honor of the one hundred thirty people who died in the multiple attacks the american rock in the rose of death metal gave a surprise concert but the lead singer at times appeared overcome by emotion the
group's concert at the back to the theater exactly two years ago turned into a bloodbath when islamic extremists stormed the whole. of the attacks in paris two years ago they sent shock waves across the country and the world but the impact was greatest for those who were there and lived to tell about it w. spoke to one survivor of the butter clan massacre on a fateful night that will always reach into his future. whenever christopher modahl walks past this place the memories come flooding back what happened here on november thirteenth two thousand and fifteen changed his life forever ever since that day the battle plan has taken on a new meaning for him to. look at. i'm very strongly attached to this place
because it's in a good way. it's as if the better class had a soul and protected me so i like coming here because it's reassuring. and makes me think and remember what happened like this you know it's only so there. is stuff barricaded himself into a room behind the stage when the terrorists started shooting that decision saved his life he was at the concert with two friends one of them died during the attack he still finds it difficult talking about what happened and was haunted by what he had experienced for months after what's this question. dramatic stress disorder. but i was incredibly tense and every little sound made me jump. i was playing by flashbacks and kept seeing images from that night hearing the sounds and smelling those horrible smells so i get apologetic and. christophe went to therapy to help him come to terms with his experience instead of shutting himself away at home he
went out more so than before he wanted to feel alive they stood to use mean that night in november is forever a part of him they are complex. as a survivor you feel guilty that others had to die while you got away with your life now. these tattoos are like my own gunshot. they show that i was there that night and who i am. and that's all. things are better now and still life for the forty one year old will never be the same again also in a good way. i'm much more willing to take a leap know that and example i've only been with my girlfriend for seven months or so and we're already talking about moving in together and having a child. i would have been much more hesitant to do that two years ago.
but now i'm thinking seize the day because the america you need to go for things if there's a chance they will make you happy is only appear. that. stuff things france has stood its ground against the threat of terrorism people are sticking together not letting themselves be divided even after further attacks yet in one respect he says the terrorists have won but for sort of just the most france has restricted civil liberties. first by maintaining the state of emergency for so long. and then by enshrining many of those extra police powers and. in a way that's a victory for the terrorists with this is they want to frighten us and make us give up some of our civil rights to do is. sit in the war. office all powers all of that this stuff is more frightened than he was before frightened that he could lose
another friend or relative to terrorism even more reason he says to live every minute of every day. every united nations member country has agreed to join the paris climate accord every country except the united states if you believe president trump will make good on his promise to exit the landmark agreement designed to reduce carbon emissions well needless to say americans are not the most popular of delegates at the un climate change conference that's going on right now in bonn germany but there are some very important exceptions today governors present and past from the u.s. states of california oregon washington and virginia were in bonn with a message take a listen. we understand that climate change is not just an environmental challenge it is the largest economic opportunity since the invention of the steam
engine and the reason is is that when we decarbonize or economy those states and those companies that will go out and create the new technologies to solve that will be the greatest wealth creators since the mehta g s we never saw this is a political issue we always saw it as a people see issue and it's you know as is always said there is no democratic republic in the obio preach the same there's no democratic water or republican water we all drink the same water so we should take politics out of the old thing and do what is right. now is arnold schwarzenegger there the former governor of california so take politics out of the mix and take c o two emissions al is well that is the goal of the united nations climate change summit that is going on right now in the german city of basra tonight we'd like to look at india a country that is heavily reliant on coal the dirtiest of fossil fuels is the source for more than half of india's electricity production our india correspondent
sonia fung the car visited the heart of the country's coal belt in east india now mining there has had a disastrous effect on the environment and also on the people who depend on it for their livelihood. some of the motto is seventeen years old. she's got interests in the coal mines of. the ship is just nine. to begin work at dawn a pretty it's fraught with danger. the cold has to be hacked out of exposed. once shipped modern badly injured himself quite welcome. open culprit is one hundred fifty meters deep suffer three makes four to five trips each day. she has to watch out for the police who chase them away and confiscate the coat.
i don't have a choice i have to do this work my parents are illiterate they've worked as laborers all their lives they can't do anything else. so i try to help them but owning money i really don't like the work my heart isn't in it. a few hours of work which is the equivalent of three euros that's more than what people earn here as day laborers of some thirty thousand people workers called scavengers but they pay a heavy price bony roll call releases toxic smoke and gases causing widespread as well and respiratory illnesses in the area. gerri are since the top one of the world's largest coal reserves. the gigantic open pits and deep mines here account for a quarter of india's coal production. but the cone is also on fire. dozens
of places below the ground some have been smoldering for more than one hundred years when underground mining first began most fires ignited spontaneously when minerals in the expose called heat up. continued mining at the surface has opened up cracks that feed oxygen to the flames. the resulting toxic emissions have devastated the environment. the coal fires destroyed houses and triggered landslides. and they're going up a sort of cargo of sugar that one has been campaigning for the rights of illegal cold workers like something three of the rubble he says india is paying a huge human cost in its stash because. this government just doesn't bother so right now paul is very important it is very important for the development the massive cities who should be the world got their i pod with them and i had the cost of these people the. amount of human beings who are going to be deprived of what
