month but a court last week sentenced him to ten years in prison. i don't have a warm welcome to you i'm on the dock shima the highest level of special that's how president donald trump described relations between the u.s. and the united kingdom he was speaking off the meeting british prime minister to resign me at her country's retreat i did a news conference in the garden the leaders rejected earlier reports of trump's criticism of me especially over briggs that negotiations the us president said that no matter what the u.k. decided after brags that it would be ok with him me emphasize that the special relationship between the two nations was alive and well and spoke of the billions of pounds of lot of military equipment the u.k.
is about to buy from the us. now for more on this with me to have in the studio alex forrest of white inc and in london correspondent bob a visit is standing by let me start with you barbara thank you on the midst of protests in the heart of london one of people saying to you. people are come out here to protest against trump against every aspect office politics be it racism. militarism appeared in his treatment of migrants or its treatment of women whatever he does people that have come out here today in london there is more than one hundred thousands in the streets here at least we haven't seen yet any official figures but it's a huge crowd all these people comes from as a matter of principle many of them fear that he's going to dismantle democracy and help to the it was the rise of right wing extremists and fascism in the end so it
is a serious allegations that people are making here against from however this protest has been the mood that the atmosphere of the party in the way many people have come out was instrumental that they're playing in between people are sort of moving and thinking a bit and the mood is joyous in a way because of course the protesters here feel that coming out is their sign their side against the politics of donald trump trying to show him that in their eyes he's not welcome in the u.k. yesterday trump said that he thought many britons really like now nobody in the center of london today is on his side they all really opposed struggled from. extending to you so konovalov protests in the heart of london for more feet so with barbara you know what to resolve this must have been a very very difficult visit for to resume but she was focusing on the positives
when she addressed. yes she had to focus on the positives because this did not go. off to a good start before donald trump an even landed in the u.k. he given an interview to the sun newspaper in which he criticized theresa may over her break that plan saying that they would probably kill a free trade deal with the u.s. and that he had given her advice and that she hadn't listened so that touch if not go down well with theresa may but she had to play ball here she had to show that she could still get something out of this meeting she talked about the positives the military cooperation shared intelligence and pursuing a very ambitious free trade agreement and this time at checkers don't trump agreed but i also want to thank prime minister may for pursuing fair and reciprocal trade with the united states once the brics a process is concluded. and perhaps the u.k. has left the e.u.
i don't know what they're going to do but whatever you do is ok with me that's your decision whatever you're going to do is ok with us just make sure we can create together that's all that matters the united states looks forward to formalizing a great bilateral trade agreement with the united kingdom. now donald trump. was asked by reporters why he'd criticize to reason may in that article he tonight criticizing her but i think that downing street at that point don't mind what she said because this was now back on message to reason may have got something positive out of him and that is what she needed and even he was talking about the u.s. u.k. relationship it is indispensable that couldn't have gone better so tourism in the end was satisfied with the us commitment on turn to you again after the nato meeting donald trump criticizes our allies there and again today donald trump it out it is an especially germany over various issues and he brought up his gas pipeline again and russia's jimmie's dependence on russian gas let's was there to
listen to what he had to say. it is a tragedy i think it's a horrific thing that's being done where you're feeding billions and billions of dollars from germany primarily and other countries but primarily from germany into the coffers of russia when we're trying to do something so that we have peace in the world i think it's a horrible thing that germany has done i think it's a horrible mistake and as much as i like angola i was very open and saying that i think it's a horrible thing that you have a pipeline coming from russia and i believe that germany is going to be getting fifty sixty or even i've heard numbers of seventy percent of their energy coming in from russia and how can you be working for peace and work in from strength when somebody has that kind of power of your country and not a very strong comments that those numbers that he mentioned have been disputed by
the german foreign office what do you make of these remarks and how why going on there. i mean this is sheer and pure essential donald trump what he does is he repeats a wrong statement over and over again he's done that on the first day of the nato meeting he repeated them on the second day of the nato meeting i'm going to america's there during the nato summit he called she contradicted him and said this is not true and the figures are much lower if germany is getting about twenty percent off its energy from russia if you take gas and oil together but he won't listen because that's not what this is about and it seems that he is really at the moment on the track of anti german propaganda that germany at the moment is his enemy number one no that is very worrying for the government involved in but we can clearly see how he is doing this and what he is doing and in this huge crowd here
in the center of london where people are carrying thousands of posters against a lot of them refer to that and say is a liar no more fake news from from and this is just one of those cases so no more fake news from trump alex what was then your over or take with this meeting between tourism me and donald trump well look at couldn't have started off worse than it has for two reason maybe but i think that downing street and the u.k. in general have played to his ego he's been presented with pageantry everywhere he's gone from plenum palace to check is later fifteen with the queen he couldn't have asked for more and he loves that so in tesco and for a private weekend nobody's quite sure who he's meeting so this is not yet over i think downing street over the white house keeping an eye on that story closely alex forrest whiting and studious and bob no reason in the heart of london following those anti trump protests thank you both very much for your reporting. let me
