8:00 pm
i'm show business i'll see that. hello there i'm fair in front like you're watching and question broadcasting from our team erica's national news headquarters here in washington d.c. we want to welcome our viewers from across the nation and around the world here are tonight's top stories as the pandemic continues to grip the world tensions between us and china continue to ramp up leaving many wondering if or sliding into a new cold war details on that next and plus researchers are looking to prehistoric dinosaurs to design new technologies of the future in a full report see what drone operators can learn from this 1st in-flight ancient creature and finally the f.d.a. is sending out an urgent warning about the dangers of zantac turns out to give you
8:01 pm
cancer we'll discuss that all right said it's time to boost your news i.q. . tensions between the united states and china are on the rise creating concern that it could be the start of a new cold war and may likely eliminate progress on a trade deal so to talk more about this rachel blevins joins me now to go to get into the details so rachel what is the current state of this trade deal where time right now in the united states and china were supposed to be finalizing phase 2 of a massive trade deal but instead president trump is now questioning whether china is following through on the agreements made with phase one so because of this he says that he's planning to talk to farmers in the coming weeks and to decide whether to terminate that go altogether and that could mean war on china now trump was asked about this and asked about whether he thinks that china is following through with their end of the deal take a listen to what he said. do hopefully they're going to keep the deal we'll see
8:02 pm
they may they may not going to fund it. the state department also confirmed that it is in the process of turbo charging this plan for the u.s. to move back on its reliance on china's manufacturing supply and they say that they're doing this because they want to work with what they describe as friendly nations so rachel how is china responded to the latest comments from the u.s. well china has denied these accusations from the u.s. specifically withheld information about the coronavirus in order to hoard medical supplies and we're responding to those comments from secretary of state the koran a virus may have come from a lab and will harm a spokesperson for china's foreign ministry. was quote making up lies and accused him of failing to keep his story straight take a listen to her response. the reason why he made such self-contradictory comments is because he has been making up and covering up
8:03 pm
a lie by fabricating the more lies that is an open secret it is not only a war between humankind and viruses but also a war between truth and lies on the shifting the blame will not solve the problem or the lives lost we sincerely regret the lives lost in the united states. now china is also calling on the u.s. to present evidence of its claims and beijing is accusing washington of trying to shift the blame away from the u.s. response to the crime the virus no rachel is there any sign of the u.s. backing down or even just changing the way that they approach this or the tram going to a station does not appear to be backing down any time soon pompeo said that these high tensions will likely continue until china provides the information that the u.s. is calling for which includes more information about the origins of the virus and patients 0 take a listen to what he said. this is why this is why when i see people say well america is bullying the chinese we were demanding of them only what we demand of every nation be transparent be open be a reliable partner the very things they say the chinese say they want to cooperate
8:04 pm
great cooperation is about action. opening up it's about sharing this information so the details of where patients 0 where this began are things that are knowledge that's in the possession of only the chinese communist party. now there are reports that trade representatives from the u.s. and china could hold talks over the phone as early as next week but if the current rhetoric over there coronavirus continues there are legitimate concerns that it will hurt not only the trade talks but also relations between these 2 countries which could lead to a new cold war all right artie's rachel blevins thanks so much for from that report thank you and president trump is beating the trade war drum saying tariffs could be the ultimate punishment on china and this could be a poke in the geo political trade war hornets nest so joining me now for more analysis on this i am joined by stephen innes chief global market strategist stephen x. so much for joining us now this past january the u.s. and china signed phase one of the trade deal just this week president trump now
8:05 pm
threatened to negotiations altogether if china didn't fulfill its promise to buy $250000000000.00 in goods then you have the coronavirus putting a halt to just about everything do you see trump having some leverage here over china and these trade talks. i think they always do i think china is in a corner of themselves right now because there are not only us is putting pressure on them but they're also getting pressure from japan they're getting pressure from australia and also europe right now so they're looking to put out fires as quickly as possible around the globe the geo political forums are referring to i think one of the things that we're looking at here i think the blame game around the covert narrative is going to continue it looks to be almost an election grandstanding opportunity with president trump iran the curtain just looking to storm the election stage again so we think this is going to continue to be in the news but how harmful this really plays out for the markets really depends on how china
8:06 pm
responds right now things are pretty calm over in china right now the dollar yen the chinese equity seem to be taking this in stride looking at this towards more political bluster than anything else at this stage but if things do escalate if we get to the point where we pull those terrorist back well then china is going to ask a way they're going to weaken the you want. and that will send negative signals across the world and that's the fear of all sums right now and you know you're talking about escalating so normally china responds to they respond very diplomatically to fiery rhetoric rhetoric coming from the united states but as of late china actually has been firing back a little bit could china potentially take some of this control back i mean we have everything made in china they could go somewhere else for oil who really has the upper hand then in these trade talks with all of that. it's a good it's a good theory valid point i think why we're seeing an opportunist could climb down right now is the fact that when you look at consumption engines around the world
8:07 pm
particularly or as they pertain to china's exports they're not firing ok so that's the one big problem right now so trump wants to ensure if those consumption engines are going to fire well they're going to fire towards the u.s. 1st that's what he's trying to get here i think they know that there's an issue with coal but they don't know the demand is not there in the normal export channels but trump wants to make sure when that demand comes back the u.s. 1st is the obligation that china has to fulfill and then you also stephen have tensions between china and the u.s. particularly in the south china sea that's literally a tinderbox waiting to happen will that play a role do you think in all timidly could china say you know what we're going to walk away from the negotiating table all together could you maybe 4 see them doing that. it's a very valid point you know there's security concerns all over the world right now as far as the u.s. is concerned especially as it pertains to china's belt road an issue of a low that's been out of the press right now but we've seen those flare up again
8:08 pm
and we do believe this is the 2nd phase of how the trade war is going to evolve it's going to have all around security issues and it's also going to revolve around technology issues to sort of start tracking these right now because there's a big election risk outputting i don't think it's in the u.s. are there parties. or benefit to bring these up ahead of the election but they're certainly going to be on the mandates post election 2020 and i'm glad we're think it on the same wavelength here because you bring up an election we have we are in an election year 6 months from now perhaps the reason for trump's amping up all of this rhetoric towards china do you think it matters who is in the white house when it comes to these high level negotiations you've got somebody like a republican donald trump you also have the democratic nominee joe biden who do you think of possibly do it better does it matter. i don't think it matters i think both parties are agreed that they need to do something but for china and this is
8:09 pm
are actually are believe that trump is responding to buy in the party came out last week and suggested the trump is being too easy on china so we see possibilities here that things are going to escalate regardless of who's in the white house we think trade is going to be an ongoing or should we think intellectual property transfer is going to be an ongoing issue and of course we take security around the globe globe as china experiencer brown wrote in their ship is also going to be an issue for whoever is in the white house all right chief global market strategist steven as steven thank you so much for your time. thank you for having me. here in washington a senate committee is holding a hearing with top health officials to talk about the state of coronavirus testing in states slowly reopen this month experts say testing is crucial and preventing another wave of infections plans for accurate and easy to use tests are in the works and could be available by the end of the summer so far the u.s. has run more than 7000000 tests over in france it appears that patients 0 may have
8:10 pm
been discovered suggesting the corona virus was circulating in france as early as december new evidence suggests the 43 year old frenchman contracted covert 19 a month before france even confirmed its 1st case one hospital near paris retested as old flu samples and it showed positive for the virus take a listen. i learned i had coronavirus only 10 days after i left the hospital in france the outbreak started at the beginning of march and i caught the virus in december to me it's unbelievable 2 months apart the doctor called me and said mr amar you were lucky that's true because today this virus has spread everywhere and details are still unclear as to how patients are all contracted the virus as he had no travel history speaking of travel a cruise ship being investigated in australia for causing the coronavirus outbreak has sailed to the philippines now the ruby princess is docked in manila bay waiting for thousands of crewmembers to get tested before disembarking know the ship has
8:11 pm
been linked to 19 deaths in australia and 2 in the united states australia is investigating why 2700 passengers and crew were allowed to disembark in city before their test results. the tiny public school in montana will be among the 1st in the u.s. to reopen after being closed for almost 2 months due to the pandemic well a creek school opened its doors to $56.00 students and 18 staff members contrary to the majority of the united states schools that are closed for the rest of the academic year now the district superintendent acknowledges the risk and says 3 fourths of the parents surveyed want their kids back in school montana also reopen the churches restaurants and retail stores. presorted bird fossils are being used to potentially help with modern aviation and drone technology believe it or not our team is correspondent john hardy takes a closer look it's called a pterosaur and it was basically
8:12 pm
a flying lizard for more than 200000000 years ago that could be as tall as a giraffe weighing more than 600 pounds and was one of the earliest known vertebrates to have evolved power in flight researchers from the university of bristol published a review in the scientific journal trends in ecology and evolution about how the pterosaurs unique multilayered wing was structured possibly allowing it to launch from a stationary position and then maintain stability in flight dr michael habib is a paleontologist with the dinosaur institute at the natural history museum of los angeles and a co-author of the study pterosaurs had a very unusual winning is unique to them that was muscle and skin and other tissues soft tissue stretched from $11.00 sort of series of bones we costs far for the from the $4.00 legged giant finger of the 4th fingers huge surges in that 4th finger goes back to the hind limb and that means they had to have very
8:13 pm
sophisticated ways of tensioning this in dealing with this fight gratian problem and they were probably better at any other animal has ever flown so not only were these gigantic flying dinosaurs able to solve their alas to city problems over evolutionary time but they were also in the size range of modern military and commercial aircraft in particular unmanned aerial vehicles or what are commonly referred to as drones it may seem a little bit weird to go into the fossil record to look at inspiration for she designed aircraft but in fact if you want that size range and you're interested in that kind of problem that's the best place to look dr have bieb says some of his recent research is currently under review by the u.s. army and that nasa. as a project and prototypes drawing from the pterosaurs launch and we opening mechanisms using their legs wings and fingers to launch from the ground into the air and aerial mechanics like track dr habib says could one day be used by
8:14 pm
a drone or other aircraft to perhaps get out of a crater on mars just one example of the very distant past playing a role in launching flight technology into the future for our t.v. john hardy. saw they got stomach troubles or even some heartburn zantac says not the way to go anymore the f.d.a. is now warning us about the serious risks about this popular medication called discuss it next what rick sanchez and the sports h.q. brigitta hand shows us one animal between took their appreciation for doctors and nurses to the big leagues stay closer back to.
8:15 pm
you kid to be go with yeah you want. is your media a reflection of reality. in a world transformed. what will make you feel safe. isolation from the full community. are you going the right way or are you being led so. direct. what is truth lost his faith. in the world corrupted you need to descend. to join us
8:16 pm
in the depths. maybe in the shallows. seemed wrong why don't we all just don't call. me old but yet to shape our disdain comes to advocate and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
8:17 pm
check your medicine cabinet because the f.d.a. is telling you to throw this out there and tack why well for more on that we go to my friend and colleague host on the news with rick sanchez rick sanchez rick it's doing more than helping with the heartburn. can you imagine i mean it's interesting to be able to just look at a camera and say something like this but the fact of the matter is this is what i must say according to what the f.d.a. is telling me to tell you right now stop taking zantac stop do not take the zantac anymore and if you have zantac in your home right now find it and get rid of it this is what they're saying to probably low estimate 60000 pardon me 60000000 americans who take it according to one study it could be as many as a 3rd of all americans who have heartburn and take some kind of medication many of
8:18 pm
which say well they take different medications. 16000000 americans say that they have heartburn daily which means they take a medication for it every single day just to be able to deal with this i mean this is no matter how you look at it no matter how you break this down this is a very important story that we're sharing right now if we were not going through the coronavirus situation this would no likely be the biggest story that everyone would be talking about that's just how much this drug this this medication is used so here's where it all starts so back in 2019. they did this study where they started to see low levels of something called m.d.m.a. it's a carcinogen it's a cancer causing agent they found that. existed and as a result of that they started asking for voluntary recalls and some warnings then
8:19 pm
last month just about 30 days ago they looked further and there was another test the there were really much more of them safe levels. this is interesting the longer it sits right the worse it gets the most the more cancer causing agents come out and the medication also if you keep it in the heat if you keep it in and in a place where it's exposed to heat again there is a more cancerous agent that arrives so the f.d.a. has now come out and they've asked us to tell you this stop taking it get rid of it in fact listen to this they're saying it's so bad that they don't want you to just throw it away because they're afraid that if you throw it away it's going to end up in our water supply and then it's there's going to be a carcinogen in the in the environment don't throw it away by putting it in the trash they say the best way to get rid of it is to take it back to a form a c. and tell your pharmacist to try and get rid of it. and of course take something
8:20 pm
else i mean you know there's. nexium. as far as we know none of those contain some of these agents ferran now rick you know one of the things and you actually are in the medical field as well as being an excellent journalist but one of the things that when you have these recalls and you have them down the line lawsuits. yeah. what do you know about that little fun fact there. it's already happening as a matter of fact there are at least several complaints and lawsuits and they're not only complaining about apparently carcinogens the lawsuits have already started they started about 5 years ago people complaining about damage livers damaged bladder and cancer concerns because of novartis sandoz and. these are the big go pharmaceutical companies that have already pulled this from the shelves but because it wasn't required as it is today and now many other of the
8:21 pm
drug makers didn't pull it a little history by the way why is it taken so long for this to happen well glaxo started testing in 1980 s. glaxo as the company that originally that originated this drug they did studies they found some problems critics scientists say they really found more problems they should have reported they did and they're complaining that they didn't that they discarded a lot of the stomach contents in the tests and that's why they're saying that this is something that should have been caught a long time ago and there may have been some carelessness glaxo for their part said look we did what the f.d.a. wanted us to do we tested it and rodents and mice and there was no carcinogens found in the mice so look fair argument both ways the fact of the matter is right now the f.d.a. is saying again stop taking it get rid of it all right rick sanchez host of the
8:22 pm
