just because you can see violence against children doesn't mean it isn't there make the invisible visible of us might violence against children disappear. this is. full of lies misrepresentations and sources that don't exist u.s. president donald trump's latest broadside against the bombshell book published today that's already a bestseller but the author says one hundred percent of the people around the
president question his fitness also on the program. congress' prime minister. refugee policy. tells german conservatives that people with no right to live in the european union should be sent packing. this president trumps america first policy is the u.s. trade deficit. level for six years as americans buy. goods and services. in the u.s. east coast to script massive winter storm as fresh snow temperatures plummeting to record lows. welcome to the program the new tell all book about donald trump's presidency is flying off the shelves in the united states it was published today four days ahead of its shuttled release and despite attempts by the president's lawyers to stop it
the book prompted a major public spat between the president and his former adviser steve over unflattering quotes contained in it was to trump. michael wolff saying the book was full of lies after extracts portrayed a while. house steeped in chaos and betrayal here is michael wolff on the n.b.c. news is today program. i will tell you the one description that that everyone gave everyone has in common they all say he is like a child and what they mean by that is he has and a need for immediate gratification it's all about him they say he's. a moron in. actually there is a competition to sort of get to the bottom line here of who this man is let's remember this man does not read does not listen so he's he's
like a. it's like a pinball or just just is just shooting off the side. let's get more from d.w. correspondent to catalina chinmoy who joins us from crime of books in washington welcome catalina so we heard a damning picture painted that of the president but mr bull's credibility has been criticized what we learned about him and the way he gathered information for this book. well michael is a very well known journalist and author he in the united states and for this book he conducted over two hundred interviews in eighteen months so he did do a lot of research and interviews on that and on the same interview we just heard on m.s.n. b.c. today he also said he works every journalist works and that he has recordings of all the interviews and he has no it's and he also added he's not surprised at all
the president trump is reacting that way because this is how he usually approaches problems threatening and he also said on that interview that he assures he spoke to president trump but that he added whether president trump was a way that this was an interview or not i'm not sure but it was definitely on the record so indeed it is also pretty extraordinary to see a president trying to block the publishing of a book in a democracy of course. foreign furia. fail and because the books are sold out here in kramer boats please let me introduce you to. the owner of this book shop and he can tell us a bit more about yesterday you are sold out of fire and fuel what happened this book was meant to be published on tuesday and then that's correct the book was initially going to come out on tuesday and then with all the rumors and all the
banter going around or coming around with the book the publishing house decided to push the book up and we happened to have a lot of copies which i give great credit to our book buying team and we are open late so i came last night technically friday and we decided to put the book out and it sold literally within two minutes like literally within two minutes in two minutes and do you have a copy of the book yourself i have a copy of the book it's on my house probably better off it is there considering how sought after it is right now but i do have a copy and when i may read it you're looking forward to. i'm not sure on this are looking forward to it i think there's been a lot of controversy around it there's a lot of hype around among us sure this is a great thing to be reading but you know it is what it is and we're a bookstore here in d.c. and it's our role to put out you know content and books that our consumers want and you know that's we've done steve thank you so much for this interview. thank you
back to you phil. and you walk us through some of the resend a letter to steve bannon threatening him shows that they are worried very worried about the comments as steve benen is making and this book it is also very important fair to point out that steve benen talks in this book about this meeting with the russian lawyer in june two thousand and sixteen that means in the middle of the presidential elections and this is a meeting that donald trump has been denying as several times and it is also very important part of the russia fair and conducted by robert muller so it could affect very much donald trump. this is a midterm election year in the u.s. but the democrats don't seem to have gone all we have talk over this book why. well feel this is clearly a conflict between republicans so i can imagine that democrats are just
sitting watching and probably smiling because these are two different parts of the republican party who are right now in a quite deep conflict i would say how alina cho boy in washington. now to some of the other stories making news around the world residents of a shanty town in the congolese capital kinshasa are picking up the pieces after at least forty four people died in mudslides interventional rainstorms or say victims were killed by collapsing walls out by drowning only homes in the city of ten million are built on hillsides a lack of drainage makes them vulnerable to flash flooding. france's president emanuel mccraw has told his turkish counterpart rajiv tire heard of one democratic countries must respect the rule of law in the fight against terror boasting president earlier in paris president macro was discussing the fate of thousands of students teachers and journalists being held in custody in turkey. the so-called
truce village in the demilitarized zone between north and south korea will be the site of the first formal talks between the countries for more than two years the discussions set for tuesday could pave the way for north korean athletes to attend the forthcoming winter olympics in south korea. hungary's prime minister has consulted the german chancellor stance on the european union and migration speaking of the party conference of the c.s.u. chancellor angela merkel's conservative sister party the migrants without the right to stay in europe should be sent home his comments come out an old good moment for the chancellor as she prepares to start exploratory talks to form a new government with social democrats. viktor orban the right wing prime minister of hungary is a regular guest here with the conservative c.s.u. party in bavaria and regular guests are often invited because you know in advance how they will behave in this regard or bonn does not disappoint as
a known euro skeptic he opposes germany's refugee policy which he dubs a problem of democracy. as after us. i told our bavarian friends that i think in the year twenty eighteen we will restore the will of the people in europe you need. for your case study tony. and that the european people step by step will force decisions concerning refugee policy that are in their best interest. the man responsible for inviting orbán is horst the who for the c.s.u. party leader who will be part of the coalition talks with the s.p.d. beginning on sunday to the s.p.d. or bond's visit is a slap in the face nonetheless they hope for makes the point of openly supporting orbán. issue without any downed viktor orban respects the rule of law.
in a newspaper interview s.p.d. leader martin schultz complained about the c.s. use meeting with e.u. euro skeptic orbán warning about his refugee policies at their meeting at the xeon monastery the c. s. he was showing an aggressive stance this could prove difficult for the upcoming coalition talks. only political correspondent we had of course not joins us from plus the zone where the c.s.u. party conference is being held welcome inviting viktor orban to speak looks like i'm going to merkel's own political allies are trying to sing coalition talks before they even start. well let's put it this way i'm going to mak all very well knows her political allies who gather here once a year to essentially make a lot of political noise and that certainly happened today inviting viktor orban is a provocation of her but even more saw so for the social democrats that she hopes
to put a coalition together with having said that these are very sensitive times in actually the political climate also given the fact that there's very little time to put together another grand coalition something a lot of europe is actually hoping for something that's becoming less and less popular here even here in germany so yes it clearly was a provocation the question is when you listen to some see as you delegates here whether the c.s.u. didn't go a bit over the mark this is years always wanted a tougher line on immigration and i'm going to merkel c d u i wonder victor obama's presence there is likely to exacerbate those differences. well i think both sides the c.d.u. and this is you know exactly where their differences are there's a certain sense of satisfaction in the c.s.u. that the germans certainly deposit over the past two years from what became known
as her open arms policy towards my current we've seen a whole succession of tightening of the laws but of course nowhere near the approach that hungary is taking which is basically shut down its borders and is refusing despite a european court order to take in a share of migrants so basically that kind of solidarity in europe simply isn't working definitely isn't working with the eastern states and what they see as you sees as a potential slight success is that they seem to have extracted from viktor orban that he might actually help humanitarian efforts in regions like syria to help on a humanitarian level but yes of course this is definitely not making it easier in berlin right now we talked so much in the room report that. prospective coalition partners speedy don't like this tell us more about their reaction.
well this is kind of interesting i mean we did hear the sea is you hear basically formulate what they expect to see from the social democrats and one key point there is that those migrants those refugees here in germany hue of a lesser protection who do not have protection under the geneva conventions which means they don't are not entitled automatically to bring close family members legally to germany well that was that right was suspended for them at that runs out early this year and this use you expects the social democrats to go along with that earlier compromise and extend that and speedy leader martin source has been quite clear that he certainly doesn't see that on the cards so this definitely isn't helping in finding the kind of let's say harmony that would be needed to at least find common level there but then again of course this is
a lot of public statements we've seen a lot of public drama over that very issue of formulating a coalition and the more interesting bit is really what is going on behind closed doors come sunday. thank you. as well as this new book u.s. president to trump has been vocal about shrinking the country's trade deficit but it doesn't look like it's going to happen anytime soon though it is a gap that is just increasingly widening fail and despite donald trump's america first policies the u.s. is buying even more foreign goods and services than it is selling in fact the trade gap has reached its highest level in six years and a vendor figure has widened to fifty and a half billion dollars off the back of record exports. america first is the policy donald trump has preached ever since he entered office he believes more should be done to protect american industries from foreign competition and he's
been especially critical of the u.s. trade deficit with china. both the united states and china will have a more prosperous future if we can achieve a level economic playing field right now unfortunately it is a very one sided and unfair one not much has changed since the speech and november some economists say that's because u.s. president trumps argument is flawed they argue countries like china are not to blame for the trade deficit but rather u.s. consumers americans consume more than they themselves produce the latest u.s. trade stats may be a case in point even with a weaker dollar and on the back of higher exports americans still appear to be spending more on foreign goods. we're covering this story for us is our man on wall street yen cotton now yes chung has spoken in the past about punitive measures in
light of this growing trade imbalance is he likely to see now follow through. the u.s. president has forced his population to buy fewer foreign goods but the administration has already taken some measures we've seen huge tariffs on lumber imports from canada or steel imports from china there's also talk about huge tariffs when it comes to washing machines from asia or bombardier planes from canada we have the nuff the negotiations still going on there is a big question mark if the united states will opt out of this agreement so there are some measures underway but the question is how good is that for the u.s. economy let's say america produces more was in the country or has higher terrorist for foreign goods that would mean that prices in the u.s. for consumers would increase and that would be
a negative for the country right now chunk has previously singled out the u.s. trade imbalance with germany in the past taking to twitter in may saying that must change in a tweet can we expect this trade imbalance this particular wanting balance out any time soon. what is true is that behind china and japan you as is running the third highest trade deficit with germany pretty much equal to mexico but the question is what precisely can the us to do a donald trump has talked about this mess if that's all we put it a trade deficit that the u.s. runs it was germany's so we might see some tariffs even if there's nothing nothing specific on the table in a respected to germany what could also happen is that was the tax reform here in the united states maybe more german companies are going to produce their goods
within the united states so that might actually bring the trade deficit down a little bit but at least for the near future i do not see a big change in those trade relations between germany and the us a financial correspondent kota in new york thanks for that. well the latest u.s. jobs figures have not met market expectations the economy only added i'm honest one hundred forty eight thousand jobs last month that was well below what it was for cost analysts say job growth is slowing down as the neighbor market news for employment the unemployment rate is still at a seventeen year low the good news for american workers case that wages are increasing. staying with the trumpet ministration and the white house has announced that it wants to open almost the entire u.s. coastline to offshore drilling music to the is of energy companies but several coastal states have already vowed to do whatever it takes to stop that happening.
the five year plan calls for forty seven new offshore leases opening waters that have been off limits for decades including areas off the california and florida coasts is a move that the u.s. interior department says is in the nation's interest but it is a clear difference between. you wait a minute and under president we're going to have the strongest energy house and become the strongest interview supercar we've certainly yet is to do that the proposal follows last week's announcement of plans to roll back or even repeal safety regulations adopted under the obama administration environmental groups have vowed to oppose the move and are organizing protests offshore drilling is is inherently dirty it's an awful lot of work there will be an oil spill such as was the case off the coast of santa barbara in two thousand and fifteen where hundred thousand gallons of oil spilled into the ocean killing fish marine mammals and
other wildlife. and you can go as far back as two thousand and ten to the b.p. departed horizon spill which spilled millions of barrels into the gulf of mexico the plan has already drawn heavy criticism from several coastal states among them the carolinas and california also in florida where memories of the deepwater horizon spill remain fresh the two thousand and ten oil platform explosion claimed the lives of eleven oil workers and devastated the gulf coast. apple says its i phones and macs are affected by the security flaw in intel processes billions of devices are vulnerable to hackers intel knew about those flaws long ago and the behavior of intel's chief executive officer before the revelation raises some serious questions. apple says the bug affects all of its devices that means everything from i phones to apple watches is potentially open to hacking the company says it's unaware of any exploits aimed at the flaw that is specific

. sunny getaways transformed into winter wonderland water fountains morphed into ice sculptures as an up normal cold snap hits the south something hot and bark and for. doing the snow yeah yeah she likes the snow so but we didn't bring our snow suit because we thought. we saw did lizards in the states of florida. thirty degrees and the harness and the trees and then again. the record lows have frozen egg one a stiff this pair partly survived and later walked off their chills. but the effects of this monster storm grew more extreme the farther north you go. in philadelphia the city's famous steaks were turned dentist slopes.
