political movement is the scene sent for more political violence. and germany's would be governing coalition parties hammer out a deal to allow refugees to bring family members to join. i've got a welcome to the program later today u.s. president donald trump will deliver his first state of the union address laying out his government's agenda for the year so let's have a look at two of the key issues he's likely to address on trade it's america's first i'm erica first during his speech at the world economic forum in davos mr trump repeated his election campaign pledge that the american economy was his top priority and that the country was open for business but america first does not mean america alone. when the united states grows so does the world.
10:02 pm
immigration and the future of the so-called dreamers will be the other key issue the president's a suggested that he's open to protecting the seven hundred thousand children of undocumented migrants who live in the u.s. illegally in return he wants senate to approve billions of dollars in border security funding so let's get more that from our washington correspondent alexandra of naaman. welcome alexandra. let's talk about the president's speech what can we expect that i feel. well it is a big moment for president trump who has had a very tumultuous january that included a government shutdown a tell all book and a bombshell report that he had thought to fire special counsel robert muller so it is a huge opportunity for president trump now to lay out his political agenda to achievements
10:03 pm
and to make a case for his ambitious infrastructure plan for his ambitious immigration plan and according to a senior white house officials who briefed us on the speech it's going to be a very optimistic speech its main theme is building a strong safe and proud america and this official told us that president will be trying to convince his audience that all americans are benefiting under his presidency that all americans of all backgrounds of all incomes are being lifted up by he's paul this is how we're over it is going to be a tough sell with many americans when we look at the approval rating which is that the record low right now and many people he opposed his divisive and controversial
10:04 pm
remarks in the past and that is a reason for many democrats to boycott this state of the union address right through because that's a point i want to pick up because this is traditionally is a considered vision for a political agenda rather than the sort of barnstorming the parties are. used to addressing how will he cope. well if it's going to stick to the script as he did last year he is going to be fine last year his address to congress which was technically not a state of the union address was praised even by many democrats as a very presidential speech so if we are going to see a teleprompter donald trump he might be fine. was wonderful norman in washington for now thank you. now let's pick up about points about which donald trump we are going to say tonight with a political science is that it was
10:05 pm
a castle's who also specializes in u.s. economics or welcome to d w. which trump then are you expecting to see today or to q trump to stick to the carefully crafted script or tweeting trump who goes off script. predicting trump behavior is difficult but i expect him to be more on scripts more in q one and his agenda because there's much at stake here for this president because his poll numbers aren't great. the u.s. economy for the most part is doing very well because the world economy is doing well what you said before in davos if the u.s. is doing well the world is doing well it's true in the opposite degree the world is actually pulling everybody up europe as well so in that regard if he wants to push this very ambitious agenda he has to come up with a good plan with a strategy that is somehow bipartisan this will require
10:06 pm
a lot of this man who likes to act impulsively and if you're looking for bipartisan support that what what's he got to offer. well the dreamers and. protecting dreamers and the economic benefit and profit that comes with them be they put the vast potential that these migrants bring to the united states will not be bought with funding for the border wall because with the tax plan of twenty seventeen which was not financed and cuts a vast hole into public finances there's no way that they've bought a wall or the border protection project will be funded entirely so there will be some kind of form of compromise that could be actually the infrastructure plan public funding for infrastructure digitalisation roads buildings that could be something that democrats could agree on. ok. there are rumors as well that he's going to make eye opening remarks about north korea what are you hearing well
10:07 pm
that's that's actually the point where everybody is a little bit disconcerted seeing that this president can be very impulsive we in his rhetoric. it remains to be seen i think what most likely is that he lays out some rather heavy rhetoric on the north korean case to make him seem stronger without an actual military strategy behind it because there's no solution to the north korean question without china and china right now isn't all too pleased when kay so you'll get with us later during the lead up to president to speech which will be broadcasting life and how the. guests thank you so much. yeah that'll be live on the d.w. at to a u t c and now let's take a look at some of the other stories are making news around the world have any separatists backed by the united arab emirates of seize the area around the

10:10 pm
kenyan capital to support opposition leader while. supporters have been gathering in a hoover park since early this morning. is an important day for us and out come on time i don't want to miss out i say are we are we that. this is that was are that citizen of this country not allowed to this will be a summer here and the left all presidents as well that. the police initially used tear gas to disperse the crowd. wanted to use this occasion to denounce a vision he says was brought about by election rigging at noon he was cited an oath of office in a mock inauguration and pronounced himself as the people's president. yes today is a historical day in our country of kenya he said kenyans have decided to remove themselves from the dictatorship that came about through veld stealing. shortly after his speech disappeared kenya's attorney general has threatened to charge him

10:12 pm
democrats say they have reached agreement on refugee family reunions refugees already in germany will be allowed to bring their families to join them but there will be a limit on the number will be allowed to do so. how did the pots as it as be they had courses where those talks have been taking place so a welcome shot with both parties describing this as a win but it does have its critics. yes for sure lots of criticism today and i'd rather call it a progress than a breakthrough we have to remember that this topic of family reunification has been heatedly discussed since the so-called refugee crisis and twenty fifteen and the number of refugees actually affected as around one hundred and fifty thousand the rather small number if you think about the more than eight hundred thousand people that came at the height of the refugee crisis but it's a matter of integration a matter of migration that has been attached to this question so it's been heated
10:13 pm
lead to discuss then finally the two parties could present an agreement today and both parties claiming victory the social democrats are saying look we have one thousand people a month being able to join with their family members in germany starting this august that is a major breakthrough and also. in cases of hardship refugees can still come to germany family members can still come to germany and then we have the conservatives on the other side who are saying now we've limited once and for all the migration to family reunification for those refugees mostly from. affected by the civil war in syria and the critics are saying that loses off this whole discussion while both parties are claiming victory the loses those refugees affected those that have been hoping to reignite with their families and especially human rights organizations and also the opposition in parliament the left parties saying this is
10:14 pm
a humanitarian catastrophe this decision that both parties have been taken and a matter of really cynicism claiming this as a victory. just as. my defense they're going to limit the numbers eventually puts a figure owners. yes they did put a figure on it it's one thousand a month for a family members that can reunite with their family members that are already here in germany in a month or so twelve thousand a year so they feel one thousand going to be an interesting discussion that takes place. thank you. and that's it you're up to date on the top of the hour but i'll leave you now with the first calls that played on a cello made of ice a cellist and shivani salema playing that italy's natural science museum entrance so i had to stay in a refrigerated bubble say tent to keep this instrument. on
