this is headline stories the american president was in the u.k. on his first official visit protests. there might be protests but i believe that the people in the u.k. . as you know have. i think that those people. like me a lot and they agree with me on immigration. speaking of the nato summit before his u.k. . competitor an enemy. on facebook. interests. concerns
6:01 pm
about the way the company is. live from moscow to the world or national my names you know. your company our top story president trump has been welcomed by to reason made to a black tie dinner. but as the u.s. leader gets the red carpet treatment the reaction from the public has been one of five rage with protests across the capital reporting from london here's. the general mood here is that these people don't want donald trump to be visiting the u.k. at all in fact just earlier we saw this protest his helicopter was landing just behind us and things of god extremely loud here these people are forced just part of the protests that will be taking place in the u.k.
6:02 pm
throughout the next couple of days with massive protests expected to take place on friday and indeed this is donald trump first official visit t.j. as he was president it's been granted really has official working visit as opposed to a state visit just takes out the level of pomp that would otherwise be associated with the state leader coming to the u.k. and of course it was done well before he even arrived here the controversy surrounding his visit has been taking place with people protesting that he come here at all with even the m.p.'s discussing in parliament whether or not he should be allowed to do that following the petition online of people saying they don't want him here such as getting even noisier here now as far as we understand the tribes helicopters expected to take off again presumably to take him to this evening and gauge with theresa may so because a lot of the africans with this visit have been taken to donald trump stay away
6:03 pm
from all of the people expected to protest so we can see this area behind me is actually the u.s. ambassador's residence to the u.k. and this is the place where donald trump will be spending just one night in central london four so for many of these protests this is pretty much as close as they're going to be able to get to the u.s. president but of course none of this seems to be facing donald trump who believes he's very much liked in this country protests there there might be protests but i believe that the people in the u.k. scotland ireland as you know i have property and island property all over i think that those people there. i like me a lot and they agree with me on immigration well of course our we decided to ask this question to the protesters here and see how much they actually like donald trump i don't know anybody that likes and i don't know anybody that wants him to come here we don't want him here do you think he's going to hear this message of people protesting that's not the point probably not although you never know but we
6:04 pm
have to protest anyway we can't do nothing this man is evil is lot of about five people in a row in a tory government the rest of the country got a body you got a funny person signed up for him. you have probably right is going to spank free. from but the majority country don't like him that's why people come out to die and donald trump said he thinks he's liked in the u.k. do you think that's true absolutely not it was absolutely look at the people. in the balloon the bigger the mob. just not extremely loud he has. to go. but if it is he needs to discuss the full fledge of this it is a good shot here just to shoot the phrase and what's it as was discussed brush up here we know it's leaving right and of course if it's really loud here. seems like it's not so much money. but the noise is just mind boggling. that it's going
6:05 pm
to be. we're expecting this only to get. out or not take. morning to organizers will be making it out. of central london on friday to say no to this is it which is going to be a lasting for the next three days so the mood here are up when obviously against tom being here am i likely to see this continue in the next days to come well as those protests are happening a double trump will be taking in scenery culture blenheim palace in oxfordshire where the president is. right now is the birthplace of winston churchill trump will then spend the night the us. london residence it's done to business on friday out the p.m.'s country residence checkers for talks with the new foreign secretary jeremy hunt after the us president and the first lady will visit windsor
6:06 pm
castle on meet the queen finally they're expected to fly to scotland to spend the weekend at trump's turnberry golf course well central london will be largely avoided during the trip us further protests are expected over the coming days but to ensure the president's safety is security in britain a massive security operation is in place he will be accompanied by a of his own staff as well as the multiple helicopters to highly secure. as well some reports put the total shared cost of the trip up the figure thirty million pounds incredible stuff well journalist mike riley believes the protests will have very little impact on trump's visit and his talks with trees and me. he'll be he'll be quite impressed that there is such a big turnout just in protest so he'll he'll be flattered by ad magine. i don't
6:07 pm
know what people expect to happen i don't think anything is going to change in terms of double teams policies and i think there will be some discussions on trade deals but he has the upper hand because effectively the u.k. is in a desperate situation not to what's been a couple of years of post referendum where we haven't really done anything in terms of trade so he's definitely sees us as a disadvantage at the moment and i think he's going to press home that advantage obviously what he's doing in terms of trade he's he's put up tensions barriers all over the place while america calls itself the home of free market that protectionist barrier is probably something that trees in my he's going to try and circumvent somehow so there will be some kind of trade deal between us and it's but i doubt it'll be on the best terms that trees and i could possibly expect so the two or three years ago but some of everyone else in foreign policy of the us out of the hope in hell of changing anything even if she wanted to or president earlier
6:08 pm
left the nato summit in brussels where he urged other countries to hike their military spend he also expressed optimism over his upcoming meeting with vladimir putin in helsinki i hope we get along well i think we get along well but ultimately he's a competitor he's representing gratia i'm representing the united states so in a sense we're competitors not a question of friend or enemy he's not my enemy and hopefully some day maybe he'll be a friend it could happen but i just don't know him very well i've been a couple of times over europe correspondent peter all of our house more on what's occurred during not highly charged i think it's safe to say nato summit. donald trump ran out onto the field determined to try and provoke a fight from with somebody angela merkel was his first point of call but he didn't get a rise out of chancellor merkel until well he brought up energy and started suggesting
6:09 pm
that because germany took in his words sixty to seventy percent of their energy from russia there it's well germany was a captive of the russian state germany is a captive for her she was a slave to get rid of the car to get rid of the. getting so much of the world as for russia i think it's something that they are still ok i think it's very appropriate they paid billions of dollars to russia and now we have to defend them against russia this is all got to do with the nord stream to pipeline which donald trump has in the past opposed because he wants to see germany and other european countries import much more expensive liquid natural gas from the united states but . you never expect what's going to come from this u.s. president on thursday when he gave this news conference he seemed to have changed his choosing a little bit about north stream three but he's going to have a good relationship with russia so there'll be a lot less problem with the pipeline but to me that was a very major point of contention we discussed it at length today germany has agreed
6:10 pm
to do a lot better than they were doing and they were very happy with that we had a very good relationship with america while the u.s. president seemed to be claiming to a fixed nato in a speech that really seemed far more directed towards his base his home than say any of the leaders who had been meeting with what we heard from the nato secretary general again stoltenberg was a little bit more measured i think that the fact that we had this open discussion has all song. clearly state that the two will redouble our efforts. it also shows the clear message from. is having an impact while the happy faces if you will on from all sides at the end of the summit doesn't gloss over the fact that this was at times a bruising and at other times hardly diplomatic meeting one in which to have
6:11 pm
wondered what america first may mean only seem to a found out it means they come second it was very similar to a lot of donald trump's visits abroad that he might be in another country he might be outside the united states but his messaging and his aim is is to please his base back in the united states that's really the only audience he plays to or has in the back of his mind and so you know he sees trying to ruffle feathers and really show that america is on a on a new course new more isolationist course more in a sense withdrawing from many things that america had been at the forefront of leading and and then sitting on easily against european partners who have come to rely on american leadership at the center but are now seeing it trying to in a sense run away leaving
6:12 pm
a large vacuum both in terms of leadership and perhaps in terms of cash well as tends to happen in summits like this week's nato summit a few noticeable moments we'll hear some of her stand themes it's. oh the middle east germany will have almost seventy percent of their country controlled by russia with natural gas so you tell me is that appropriate complaining about this and you tell me of that's appropriate because i think it's not and i think it's a very bad things in there. but
6:13 pm
it is if you really do you commit yourself to be. this yes' for huge producer the differences but for. the people to get your foot. out to do it. it's been revealed about face label sixty five fellows in russian members as having an interest in trees and looking beyond the headlines and that story for us. facebook really outdid itself on this one here's how it went certain facebook
6:14 pm
users russians in this case were internally so they didn't know labeled as interested in treason so those perhaps with the anti government view against russia all russians. only stopped when they got caught treason was included as a category given its historical significance given it is an illegal activity we have removed it as an interest category now here's the juice of it who do you think would be interested in this data clue that the thais as watchmakers now don't and that propagandists those interested in riling these people up there are getting bombards in them with anti russian propaganda masquerading as ads encouraging them to commit treason a perfect tool to meddle in russia's politics facebook remove the treason category
6:15 pm
due to criticism but there are plenty more that it's keeping third advertisers of course but the gambling offers no similar protections for information about those categories that it has inferred itself for instance that i use them i'd be interested in homosexuality or interested in islam that information facebook isn't removing how would you feel of for example you were marked as interested in homosexuality in saudi arabia where homosexuals are executed how do you feel if you are marked as interested in islam and myanmar where muslims are exterminated and facebook may well have been marking potential traitors in other countries much less respectful of human rights in which these people might disappear we've tried to contact them for that comment but no response so far. and at this stage it safe to
6:16 pm
say that fish book has been literally in big drink people's lives this feels like western stirring western interference in the democratic process within russia because they're trying to create tension or suspicion or paranoia amongst the people who might have taken an interest in some historical case of treason or whatever it is and we've seen the same thing happen across the west as well over the last few years where we know that facebook also profiles for what is called dissidents or subversive in western countries and of course this can all be sold on to companies such as cambridge analytic or the big scandal in the u.k. over the last few months but it's certainly dangerous for our democracies to i've been saying for at least a tech case that facebook is effectively the sort of fantasy system that if the spies could have developed it they would have developed it and the fact that facebook has been colluding with a western spy global surveillance plane not going as we know from the whistleblowing of edward snowden and one of his earliest disclosures was the prism
6:17 pm
program you know the meshing between the core person the states of ale and this incredibly close now across the west so all i can say to russia is welcome to the panopticon. the news continues on r.t. international in ninety seconds. join me every first week on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to us of the world of politics or business i'm sure business i'll see you. well we'll go twenty eight team coverage we've signed one of the greatest goalkeepers of what was up but there was one more question by the way who's going to be our coach. guys i know you are nervous he's a huge star and the huge amount of pressure you have to the center of the beach
6:18 pm
with how would you. agree. you are the rock at the back nobody gets past you we need you to get the ball going let's go. alone. and i'm really happy to join for the two thousand and three and world cup in russia meet the special one come on both appreciate me to just to redo. the latest edition to make it up as we go so i need to look. again the u.s. justice department has admitted there are no plans to release prison inmates during a federal court hearing now an official said they could be held for one hundred years if necessary a lawyer representing the inmates expressed his alarm over those comments think the
6:19 pm
government didn't help its case by saying that you know essentially you know this is this war might be like one hundred years war in england and potentially we could end up detaining people for several generations as long as hostilities were ongoing and in the war on terror all the details are this the men in the trial have been held in the court case i should say that's the issue there is no trial being held up the military prison some for as long as fifteen years without ever being charged with a crime their lawyers are demanding the inmates be either tried or released the eleven men were not allowed to listen into the court arguments because authorities said there wasn't a room big enough to shut. in together. human rights groups of the scribe the conditions of their imprisonment up to guantanamo bay as on constitutional and against international law among the group appealing for release is tell fake alba honey he's a yemeni citizen and has been detained in kuantan him obey since two thousand and three all on suspicion of having been
6:20 pm
a member of al qaida he's never been charged in fact he was previously cleared by u.s. authorities and granted release papers on three occasions each time though it was count thought of the very last moment here's what another detainee had to say about their situation i still have faith even after all this time they did judge will see through this stupidity the better solution would be to see the american taxpayer the eleven million. to keep the year and maybe nobody but i am a very expensive nobody the guantanamo bay detention camp was opened in two thousand and two by president george w. bush since then seven hundred eighty prisoners have been held as part of america's fight against terrorism human rights groups decried the treatment of inmates after reports of abuse and torture surfaced despite efforts from the previous administration to shut it down donald trump signed an executive order to keep the camp open indefinitely forty people are still incarcerated there here's how
6:21 pm
a nother former guantanamo prisoners described the torture torment that he suffered take a listen. torture false imprisonment. human degrading treatment is something that myself and many others endured but i think the cruelest and most torturous treatment has been that you are detained without charge or trial by a country that claims to be the bastion of freedom and human rights and democracy we already know people are being tortured on mass the americans of mit it during the. torture but what's happening now is that one tunnel is as american high and i think most people recognize this whether it's bush or by. donald trump all have allowed one tunnel to exist and continue under the presidency of. the f.b.i. agent who used to be in charge of the trumped russia collusion probe has testified on allegations of bias it was an emotional hearing one point descended into
6:22 pm
a shouting match. and your testimony is bob mueller did not kick you off because of the content of your text he kicked you all because of some appearance that he was worried about my testimony if you want to represent which he said accurately i'm happy to answer that question but i don't appreciate what was originally said being changed i don't give a damn what you pre-shared agent strong not even a week into an investigation that you originated approved or the contact for and you're already promising to protect the country from that menace donald trump i will not answer that question you have not stated a valid legal basis for not responding to a question directed to you by a member of the united states house of representatives and you are overruled point of order mr chairman your let me let me continue your testimony is essential to this hearing and i have a point of order before he answers the question the point of order is not well
6:23 pm
taken until you know what the point of order is you can say and i will take up point of order the the witness will answer the question now your hands are already present and i declared because you don't question that ruling out of order mr chairman let's turn to dr privilege and he has been archives not just to answer that i will suspend so peter struck who you just saw is an f.b.i. agent who was one of the agents leading the investigation into alleged russian collusion now he was accused of anti trump bias after some of his private talks with a colleague lisa page were leaked in one of those texts he even vowed to stop trunk from becoming president trump is not even going to become a president right right now no he won't will stop it. it is testimony that was described as a circus by one congressman peter struck attempted to defend himself saying that his personal views have never influenced his official f.b.i. decisions but check out what else he had to say not once in my twenty six years of
6:24 pm
defending our nation did my personal opinions impact any official action i took but the committee was pretty divided over his testimony while republicans were on the off chance democrats were playing defense objecting to all their questions now one loyal democrat even suggested that struck be rewarded for his service to the country on the other side struck desperately tried to keep the russian hysteria alive by characterizing the proceedings as a win for the usual suspect i have the utmost respect for congress has oversight role but i strongly believe today's hearing is just another victory notch in putin's belt and another milestone in our enemy's campaign to tear.
