8:04 pm
underhanded attacks begin in the final moments of the campaign, so his advice to the voters of south carolina - get ready to duck. >> all right. lisa stark live in south carolina. thank you so much. well, a war of words erupted between donald trump and pope francis. last week the pope does not understand immigration issues along the mexican border and on a flight back from mexico pope francis was asked about trump's immigration plan. >> translation: a person that thinks only about building walls wherever they may be is not christian. it's not in the goss trump spoke about this in south carolina. >> if and when the vatican is attacked by i.s.i.s., everyone knows i.s.i.s.'s ultimate trophy. i promise you that the pope
8:05 pm
would have wished and prayed that donald trump would have been president. >> donald trump said a religious leader questioning faith is disgraceful. moneying alistair is a political analyst. he joins us from pittsburgh. good to have you with us. what do you make. back and fourth between donald trump and the pope? >> nothing surprises me with donald trump, he's been doing different things that should have knocked them down. aside from coming in second place in iowa, he has been invincible with his base. he can say and do what he wants, and that can stay there. it's not a surprise to me. particularly in south carolina, where there's not that men down there. if we talk about pennsylvania,
8:06 pm
michigan. maybe he shouldn't take on the pope. in south carolina, it doesn't play the same way. he has seen in iowa, that he can get the vote, hang on to that and keep the momentum in south carolina. in some regards, to listen, i can separate my religion from my secular views in regards to keeping america safe. trying to spin that, people that are dealing with immigration issues in the state. eventually he is going to head to the states with a large catholic population. could it cap the long run? >> there are states that are further down the road in regards to the map as to who is voting when and how many delegates each can win. let's say it's him and cruz going into pennsylvania, that will not hurt them as much. if it's trump versus rubio, we have seen polls suggesting rubio
8:07 pm
will trump trump. so going in to peninsula. there should be a one on one, if it's rubio versus trump, what we are saying, it's 26 on the race. it will hurt him more. we have to see what it looks like down the road. >> we don't know when it will happen. so many candidates vowing to stick it out. i'm curious rubio with the endorsement of south carolina and at least went second now, does it give him the advantage that it needs? >> it does a couple of things, it will likely come in second place. cruz in second for a long time in iowa. and basically was able to link past trump. don't be surprised if he does that with the the hayley group.
8:08 pm
>> it seems that he is the establishment candidate. if ben doesn't get the eadvantagelicsals, he may not go. jed bush may be going. cards are bernard cazeneuve did well in new hampshire. i think that the best ticket for the g.o.p. is rubio and john kasich. that's the best now. g.o.p. rubio. and if he outlatters jed bush, you can look to that happening. he excites everything and it looks like the 2008 eight bomb ticket. and instead of looking at illinois, which is a blue state.
8:09 pm
now you are talking about two swing states where the republican made latino a 2-term governor, going to ohio. you look at all that combined. that's a winning formula. >> where does ted cruz fall into all of this, astopped by a campaign event. and his groups was energized. do you feel that his campaign is on the beginning of fizzling out. >> he will keep it for a while. rick came from 1% polling to be in second place throughout the process, being the true conservative. so he'll carry the mantle all the way through. the problem is there are too many criticising the campaign. it's one thing that you get used
8:10 pm
to that. but everyone is pointing at you being the dirtiest politician. during a primary he is stuck with that label that doesn't play well, especially when it comes from a campaign who has seen it above. and it is not coming from marco rubio, the establishment candidate and trump. he is making accusation, he'll have a base as a true conservative. he may not have the momentum to say number one. despite what the polls are saying. >> itting analysis, the imagination of marco rubio-john kasich. thank you so much. live for us in pittsburgh. >> thank you, god bless. >> switching gears to nevada, where the democratic president is locked in a tight race. an hour from now hillary clinton

8:12 pm
another conversation that they are having here is over the minimum wage. a $50 minimum age. it is feasible. striking at $8.75, and is still an increase, she is saying it's doable. it's the practicality versus i dealism. both resonating groups. you are registering the same day of the caucus, how many will come out. between 20,000 and 120,000 people have shown up. they don't know what will happen, it makes it a difficult state to poll. by all accounts it's close. again. they are not always reliable in the states. hillary clinton is confident but neath to put an end to the band

8:19 pm
8:20 pm
the top opposition candidate in uganda's presidential election was briefly arrested. he was detained after being
8:21 pm
charged with voter fraud. the government shut all social media sites saying they had concerns. the president has been in power for 30 years. turkey wasted no time retaliating against those held responsible for the deadly suicide bombing. within hours of the plast killing -- blast killing 28 people, the planes struck conditions in northern i can. >> reporter: it took the eporter: it took the it took a few hours. officials are blaming the kerrish group. they are denying involvement in the explogs. a separatist group joining kurds fighting the turkish
8:22 pm
government. the investigation into the attack continues. so far people linked have been custody. others have been identified. stll be other arrests in due course. there'll be information on this now. in october close to 100 people were killed outside the train station. i.s.i.l. claimed responsibility after a man blew himself up at ab historic site popular with tourists. all linked to the war in syria, turkey has supported the fight against those terrorists. as far as the u.s. and others are concerned, the y.p.g. are their allies in the war against i.s.i.l. now the international community must rectify that policy.
8:23 pm
>> the links with the p.k.k. in turkey we touched upon. there's a strong link between them. obviously it will help our allies to understand. we have been seeing this, and sooner or later allies will understand. evidence of thinks, and the terrorist organizations to support them will be judged. turkey's war planes and targets in northern iraq. ankara has been shelling y.p.g. forces inside syria. it wants to send in ground troops across the border with syria. so long as the russian allies controls the sky. that option is off the table, left n.a.t.o. and turkey's partners support them. >> with the attack comes increased attacks. the governments feel that it's let down bit the u.s. and n.a.t.o. now, the latest attack could
8:24 pm
provide justification across the border. but the position towards syrian based kurdish groups continues to be at odds with that of its allies. the difference of opinion looks likely to remain a problem today president barack obama signed in to law a measure expanding sanctions against north korea over its nuclear programme. the sanctions come weeks after north korea launched a rocket into space and carried out underground tests. it is designed to keep north korea from getting the money it needs to develop miniaturized war heads and the missiles used to deliver them. >> the u.s. flew flour s 22 fighters jets over south korea. the u.s. and south korea are set to begin talks with missile defense systems. as jake ab ward explains, it's a system signed to bring down a
8:25 pm
missile. >> chad turns for terminal high altitude defense. it has three parts. a series of radar unit, fire aerial control communications, and a launcher that fires an interceptor, basically a big stick. the idea revolves around the word terminal. a missile travels from one place to another. after it has touched the apex. it enters the terminal phase, in which it essentially it falling. that is when the system seeks to intercept the missile, striking at it before the war head. >> this system used to be fantasy, and the idea is complicated. in rint years the tech -- recent years the technology is reliable. they been able to accept small
8:26 pm
missiles, struggling with a similar type. the system is almost entirely automated. you have 90 seconds between launch and missiles raining down. it's effective with 1,000 interception, and 90% success rate. that'd has been similarly successful according to the states. the 41 scientists installed on gaum and the tests there. u.s. military reporting 100 success test rate. if numbers are accurate, if means that those installed, almost anything that north korea could fire. it's the sale of the system that makes it complicated. it has a radar range of 600 miles. the radar may recover 1800 miles or 3,000 kilometres.
8:27 pm
that makes china ready to install the system. it gives them a radar coverage not just of the korean peninsula but areas of china. it was south korea that could monitor the air space. maybe it would be acceptable. the idea is rather than buying the system, south korea would co-own the system with the u.s. the system could be extremely effective means of countering missiles fired from north korea, but could create a new level of tension with china a war without breakdown. next - pope francis - a question of contraception for women threatened with the zika virus. easing their suffering. visiting one of a few hospice facilities, open for the homeless.
8:28 pm
8:29 pm
8:30 pm
pope francis made headline on two fronts. first an issue on immigration, and suggesting that birth control might be prevented to help stop the zika virus. the pope reignited the opposition to abortion, calling it an evil. the pope says there's a difference between aborting a foetus and preventing a pregnancy. like many lat yij american countries why -- latin american countries where zika is found is
8:31 pm
a catholic country. our guest joins us from marylands. tom, good to have you with us. >> good evening how groundbreaking is the comment from the pope, opening the doors to possible contraception? >> well, it follows on mower comment made in november. someone asked a similar question about the spread of aids in africa. there are so many concerns, then i had nothing, and people in the slave trade. when those things are solved, then we can talk about the need with the law. he didn't abandon the law. so in instances, some months apart, what he's saying is birth
8:32 pm
control is not always an absolute evil. he says it in accessible terms, and thinks it's a remarkable comment, and has long-term implication. >> it has been when we look at the newer younger american athletes. some catholics disillusioned by the catholics. do you see this trickling down and affecting american catholics for pregnancy prevention or spreading h.i.v. in the u.s. >> in terms of the practical use of contraception, it's been a nonissue for decades. polling showed consistently that up to 85 pore 90% of catholics.
8:33 pm
i think what this may have an effect on is the pastoral approach of priests in the confessi confessional when they see circumstances saying there may be areas where you can make it judgment. they may soften the stance where women, for seer reasons, cannot have a child at the moment. or want to avoid pregnancy. he's not going to say it openly, but the inclination in approach is a softer tone than we have been used to for the past 30-35 years. >> i want to ask you about the war of words between the pope and donald trump. the pope has been criticized by some for jumping in the american political fry. even if he was pulled into it. what do you make of this?
8:34 pm
>> in my 30-plus years of covering the church, it's unusual. i've never heard of the poem addressing a candidate. trump was mentioned in the question. i think that if you look at the contents of comments, even to his own bishops, and to other crucial questions, he is speaking out of the gospel, and what he is saying is it's an instance on the gospel meaning welcome the stranger. would make the words pretty logical. he is all about encounter. welcoming. he's certainly not about putting up walls, so this - while it sounds severe, and is, i think it's consistent with what he said before, and i suggest if mr trump looked at what - you know, what is said by his own
8:35 pm
culture, he is getting off easy, the pope has been clear on those, even those that he considers of not proper christian witness. >> i was thinking back to when the pope was visiting the u.s., the amazing crowds that supported him. does the pope making a comment like this have an impact on the politics. is he popular, and is he influential enough here in the u.s.? >> i don't know that. what i do know is probably inadvertently he didn't will it, he didn't mean to. but giving mr trump another couple of cycles. >> we are talking about that here, is how popular is the pope. maybe you can put it in perspective for us. it's one thing for people to show up and attend the differentent, buts do they continue to listen to the pope after he's gone, after he flies
8:36 pm
back overseas. do americans respect his opinion enough that it could change him politically. >> i don't know that. i think it conflicts or they are affected by him in a strong way. in a way i hear anecdotally, i haven't been here for a while. i may come back because of this guy. i want to hear more about what he says. i certainly don't think he'll affect much of the base of donald trump's support. but i don't know anything more than that. it will be interesting how this plays it out. >> south like you are as curious as we are. tom, editor from the national catholic reporter. thank you for your time tonight. >> pleasure switching gears - state officials in california say a methane leak in porta ranch has been ceiling. south carolina california gas says it will do all it can to

8:41 pm
ignored serious red flags, specifically pressure tests on the well. they say that the well had sealed off leaks. the tests showed that it was upword pressure from oil and gas. we remember that the macondo well exploded off lucyiana's coast. sending oil spewing. the attorney said that he did not make the choices to set off the explosion, he was the day time supervisor, and the decisions were made before his shift starred. and said the owners should be responsible because they did not perform proper maintenance checks. it is initially a pollution charge, and now a misdemeanour. he could face a year in prison
