>>> HELLO AND WELCOME TO NIGERIA AND TO "CROSSROADS." I'M RICHARD QUEST IN LAGOS, NIGERIA. THIS SQUARE IS THE HEART OF THE CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT, WHERE I FIND THE CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA AND ALL THE BIG POWERS OF THE LARGE COMPANIES. THIS IS ONE SIDE OF NIGERIA AS IT MOVES INTO THE 21st CENTURY. BUT THE CHALLENGES CAN BE SEEN ON THE OTHER SIDE. YES, THERE ARE STALLS WITH LOTS OF MOBILE PHONES FOR SALE, AND NO DOUBT ABOUT IT, TECHNOLOGY IS RAPIDLY MOVING INTO THE ECONOMY. FOR EXAMPLE, THIS IS A COMMON SIGHT. PEOPLE ON COMPUTERS EVERYWHERE. BUT THEN THIS IS ALSO A VERY COMMON SIGHT. GENERATORS.
THE SUPPLY OF ELECTRICITY IS INTERMITTENT AT BEST. KEEPING THE LIGHTS ON IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES FACING COMPANIES BIG AND SMALL AND JUST ABOUT EVERY CONSUMER. PUT IT ALL TOGETHER, YES, NIGERIA HAS A NEW GOVERNMENT. JUST SOME TWO YEARS OLD, WITH AN AMBITIOUS REFORM PLAN AND PROGRAM. BUT IT'S A SIGN OF HOW BIG THE CHALLENGE IS THAT WHICHEVER WAY SEEM
THEY TURN, THERE ARE OBSTACLES, SEEMIN


>>> IT DOESN'T MATTER IF IT'S DAY OR NIGHT, IT IS WARM. TONIGHT IT IS HOT. WE ARE IN LAGOS, NIGERIA, FOR TONIGHT'S EDITION, AND TOMORROW'S, OF "QUEST MEANS BUSINESS." A VERY GOOD EVENING TO YOU FROM NIGERIA'S LARGEST CITY. I'M RICHARD QUEST IN LAGOS. AND WE ARE DELIGHTED TO BE IN AFRICA'S MOST POPULOUS COUNTRY AND LARGEST COUNTRY. IT HAS BEEN A ROUGH 2016 FOR NIGERIA. THE COUNTRY WENT THROUGH A RECESSION. THAT MUCH IS KNOWN. BUT NOW THINGS ARE BACK ON TRACK. GROWTH HAS RETURNED, ALBEIT MODESTLY. THE IMF HAS GIVEN ITS BLESSING TO THE ECONOMIC PLA AND THE PRESIDENT ANNOUNCED HE'S SEEKING $7 BILLION IN INVESTMENT FROM CHINA AND THE WORLD BANK. THE GOAL IS TO IMPROVE THE
NATION'S RAIL INFRASTRUCTURE, TO HELP ECONOMIC RECOVERY IN THE NORTHEAST, SOME OF THE STEPS OUT OF RECESSION. THERE ARE THREE PRINCIPAL ROOTS THAT WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT TONIGHT, BECAUSE WE ARE NOT HERE TO HARP ON ABOUT THE PROBLEMS AND THE DIFFICULTIES, THE ISSUES OF WHICH THEY ARE WELL-KNOWN. IN THIS EDITION OF "QUEST MEANS BUSINESS" WE'RE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT THE POTENTIAL, THE FUTURE, AND WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT IT.
THE PRESIDENT'S PLAN, THE DIVERSIFICATION OF THE ECONOMY AWAY FROM OIL. CREATE A DOMESTIC INDUSTRY THAT WILL HELP MANUFACTURING AND INFRASTRUCTURE, THE IMPROVEMENT TO MOVE IT ALL AROUND. IN THIS HOUR YOU'LL MEET THE KING OF AFRICAN OIL, WHO WILL BE WITH ME NEXT. WE'LL TALK ABOUT TO THE HEAD OF TOYOTA IN NIGERIA. WE'LL SHOW YOU THE MANUFACTURERS OF NIGERIA'S IT'S A POPULATION AND AN ECONOMY THAT IS POWERED BY OIL. 70% OF GOVERNMENT REVENUES COME FROM OIL. SO
90% OF EXPERTS.
SO WHEN THE OIL PRICE FELL SHARPLY IN 2015, NIGERIA WAS WELL AND TRULY CLOBBERED. TO THE EXTENT IT DROVE THE ECONOMY INTO RECESSION. JUST LOOK AT THE PRICE OF BRENT CRUDE. BRENT OVER THE PAST THREE YEARS, IN 2014, 108. 2016, $27 A BARREL. TODAY IT'S AT $51 A BARREL, BETTER THAN IT WAS, BUT NOT GOOD ENOUGH. ONE GROUP RALLYING DESPITE THE FALLING OIL PRICING, JOINING ME NOW, THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF NIGERIA'S LARGEST INDEPENDENT INTERNAL CONGLOMERATE.
GOOD TO SEE YOU, SIR. >> GOOD TO SEE YOU, RICH. >> HOW SERIOUS WAS THE ENERGY CRISIS AND HOW MUCH BETTER IS THE SITUATION TODAY? >> I THINK THE ENERGY CRISIS TOOK EVERYBODY BY STORM. NOBODY EXPECTED THE PRICE TO COLLAPSE. RE
NIGERIA IS AN EXTREMELY RESILIENT PLACE. WE ALL TOOK THE SHOCKS, PREPARED OURSELVES FOR IT. A YEAR AND A HALF, TWO YEARS DOWN THE ROAD, WE'RE BACK TO RISING. >> BACK TO $51. WHAT IS THE PRICE IDEALLY? WE LOOK AT OPEC, WITH PRODUCTION CUTS.
IDEALLY, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE A PRICE AT? WHAT'S A SATISFACTORY PRICE BOTH FOR THE GOVERNMENT AND THE PRIVATE SECTOR? >> I THINK A $70 PRICE IS -- >> GOOD LUCK. IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN. >> YOU NEVER KNOW. ONE THING YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND IS THERE'S A NATIONAL DECLINE OF APPROXIMATELY 15%. AND THERE IS GROWTH, THERE IS GROWTH COMING FROM THE DEVELOPING WORLD, PARTICULARLY AFRICA, ASIA. YOU'LL FIND THE OIL PRICE WILL RISE BECAUSE THERE'S BEEN VERY LITTLE INVESTMENT IN THE LAST
THREE YEARS. >> IF WE TALK ABOUT -- AT THE BEGINNING OF MY REPORT I POINTED OUT, EVERYBODY'S GOT A GENERATOR. THIS HOTEL HAS FIVE GENERATORS. THERE'S GENERATORS WHY DOES NIGERIA HAVE AN ELECTRICITY PROBLEM? IS IT THE GENERATION PROBLEM IN TERMS OF GENERATING POWER OR IS IT A TRANSMISSION PROBLEM AND DISTRIBUTION OF IT, WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE? >> IT'S A PHILOSOPHY. IT'S NOT NOT ABOUT GENERATION OR TRANSMISSION. IT'S ABOUT THE FACT THAT AS THE POPULATION EXPLODED, WE FAILED TO PRIVATIZE ELECTRICITY EARLY
ENOUGH TO ATTRACT THE CAPITAL. THE GOVERNMENT CAN'T DO IT ALONE AND WE NEED FOR PUBLIC/PRIVATE INITIATIVES TO DRIVE THE INFRASTRUCTURE NIGERIA NEEDS. UNFORTUNATELY THERE'S BEEN TOO MUCH RELIANCE ON GOVERNMENT SPENDING. >> THE NEXT ELECTION IS 2019. ARE YOU SATISFIED WITH THE RATE OF REFORM THEY'VE MANAGED TO INTRODUCE? >> I DON'T THINK ANYBODY IS SATISFIED, PERIOD, ABOUT ANYTHING. THE ISSUE IS THAT THIS GOVERNMENT CAME ON THE PRINCIPLES OF CORRUPTION, SECURITY, AND THE EC THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS
THEY'VE DEALT WITH CORRUPTION FIRST. THE SECURITY OF THE COUNTRY. AND THE ECONOMY WAS POTENTIALLY THE THIRD THING THEY STARTED TACKLING. I THINK THERE'S AN ECONOMIC RECOVERY PLAN. THERE'S THE OIL INDUSTRY. THAT'S A MOVE TOWARDS ENCOURAGING THE PUBLIC SECTOR AND PRIVATE SECTOR TOWARDS DRIVING MORE. >> SAUDI HAS ITS 2013 PLAN. QATAR, WHICH HAS VAST FUNDS, YOU KNOW, IS DIVERSIFYING. EVERYBODY IS DIVERSIFYING OR ATTEMPTING TO DIVERSIFY. HOW REALISTIC -- NIGERIA, IT SHOULD BE POSSIBLE. YOU'VE GOT 170 MILLION PEOPLE. YOU'VE GOT INDUSTRY IN VARIOUS
PARTS. YOU'VE GOT AGRICULTURE. YOU HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR DIVERSIFICATION, DON'T YOU? >> YEAH, BUT ALSO WE'VE GOT THE RESILIENCE OF SHOWING WE CAN DO THINGS. IF YOU LOOK AT THE FACT THAT -- THIS IS THE LARGEST TELECOM MARKET IN AFRICA. THIS IS THE LARGEST OIL CENTER. THIS IS CENTER IN TERMS OF WHAT WE CAN I HAVE NO DOUBT ABOUT THE FACT THAT WE CAN DO IT. THE REAL ISSUE IS TO HAVE THE RIGHT ECONOMIC POLICIES. >> FINALLY, SIR, YOU WOULD RECOMMEND THAT WE SHOULD BE OPTIMISTIC? >> WITHOUT A DOUBT. I THINK THAT ONE THING THE COUNTRY HAS SHOWN IS ITS
CAPACITY TO REINVENT ITSELF. WE'RE INTO FOUR YEARS OF TERRIBLE CORRUPTION IN THE LAST ADMINISTRATION. IT WAS REVERSED. WE HAD AN ELECTION, OKAY? NO SHOTS WERE FIRED. WE CHANGED OUR PRESIDENT. DEMOCRACY IS IN PLACE. INSTITUTIONS ARE WORKING. AND I SEE A GREAT FUTURE FOR OUR COUNTRY. >> AND WE'RE GRATEFUL YOU CAME TO SEE US THIS EVENING, SIR, MANY THANKS FOR JOINING US. >>> TO THE MARKETS AND HOW THEY TRADED DURING THE SESSION. A SLEW OF EARNINGS THAT TOOK PLACE AFTER THE BELL. ALPHABET, I STILL CAN'T GET USED TO CALLING IT ALPHABET, IT'S GOOGLE FOR ME. AMAZON, MICROSOFT, INTEL. WE HAVE THE TECH NASDAQ WHICH IS RISING TO A NEW ALL-TIME HIGH. THE DOW JONES INDUSTRIALS FINISHED PRETTY MUCH FLAT AT THE CLOSE. PAUL LA MONICA IS WITH THE NUMBERS TOGETHER. PAUL, EARNINGS SEASON AND TECH NUMBERS THAT WE'VE HAD, HOW ARE
THEY LOOKING? >> THEY ARE LOOKING FOR NEWER TECH COMPANIES TO BE PRETTY STRONG.
GOOGLE -- I'M WITH YOU, RICHARD, I CAN'T CALL THEM ALPHABET WITH A STRAIGHT FACE -- EARNINGS AND SALES BEAT AMAZON, VERY STRONG RESULTS AND THAT STOCK IS SURGING. IT MIGHT NOT BE LONG BEFORE AMAZON SHARES HIT $1,000 A AND MICROSOFT AND INTEL, THEY WERE NOT FANTASTIC. THOSE STOCKS ARE DOWN A LITTLE BIT. SO IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW THE MARKET REACTS TOMORROW. THOSE FOUR COMPANIES I MENTIONED COMBINED HAVE A MARKET VALUATION OF $1.75 TRILLION. >> IN THAT SCENARIO, YOU KNOW, THE NASDAQ IS AT AN ALL-TIME HIGH, RIDING ON THE BACK OF
THOSE NUMBERS. BUT THE DOW AND THE BROADER MARKET, THE S&P, THAT IS STILL BEING BUFFETED BY THE E ISSUES AND THE -- I MEAN, THE TAX PLAN FROM THE PRESIDENT, THE TRADE TALKS FROM NAFTA, WHICH WE'LL TALK ABOUT LATER IN THE PROGRAM. WE ARE HAVING I WON'T SAY A BIFURCATION OF THE MARKET, BUT IT'S CERTAINLY SPLIT. >> BIFURCATION WAS A FANCY WORD A LOT OF PEOPLE USED IN THE LATE '90s TO DESCRIBE TECH AND THE NEW ECONOMY OUTPERFORMING THE OLD ECONOMY. EVERYBODY IS EXPECTING A TAX REFORM PLAN FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP THAT ALLOWS ALL THOSE TECH
COMPANIES TO BRING CASH BACK TO THE UNITED STATES AND USE IT TO INVEST, WHERE IS SOME OF THOSE OLDER COMPANIES THAT HAD THOUGHT TO HAVE BEEN TRUMP FAVORITE, ENERGY AND FINANCIALS IN PARTICULAR, THEY HAVE ACTUALLY PULLED BACK. OIL STOCKS WERE AMONG THE WORST PERFORMERS IN THE DOW THIS YEAR, AND BIG BANK STOCKS AREN'T FARING ALL THAT WELL EITHER. >> PAUL LA MONICA IN NEW YORK, THANK YOU. PAUL, NEVER MIND THE CLOSING BELL ON WALL STREET. YOU CAN STICK YOUR CLOSING BELL FOR TONIGHT. TODAY, HERE IN LAGOS, I GOT TO RING THE CLOSING GONG. ← APPLAUSE →
YES, THEY HIT A GONG AT 2:30 IN THE AFTERNOON. I DIDN'T WANT TO GIVE IT A GOOD THUMPING AT THE GAVEL LIKE THEY DO AT THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE EXCHANGE, I WAS RATHER FEARFUL I WOULD BREAK THE GONG. I WAS GRATEFUL TO DO IT. THE MARKET WAS UP HALF A PERCENTAGE POINT, AND ONE TRADER WENT SO FAR AS TO SUGGEST THAT YOURS TRULY MIGHT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE GAINS. >> MAYBE, ON THE LIGHTER SIDE, THE BOISTEROUS CHARACTER OF RICHARD QUEST WORKED POSITIVELY ON THE MARKETS. >> SO THERE YOU HAVE IT, PAUL LA MONICA, YOU MAY BE OUR GURU ON "QUEST MEANS BUSINESS," BUT THESE EMERGING MARKETS LIKE NIGERIA, WHICH IS VERY HEAVILY DOWN FROM ITS ALL-TIME HIGH, SHOWING PROGRESS, REFORMING THE MARKET, AND SEEMINGLY >> YOU'RE LIKE A CENTRAL BANK CHIEF.
PEOPLE TALKED ABOUT THE GREENSPAN PUT, THE BERNANKE PUT. WE'VE GOT THE QUEST PUT, I'M JEALOUS, THERE'S NO LAMONICA PUT. ALL JOKED ASIDE, THERE'S HOPES THAT EMERGING MARKETS LIKE MA
AFRICA AND LARGER EMEASURING MARKETS SUCH AS CHINA AND INDIA WILL HELP LEAD THE GLOBAL ECONOMY HIGHER. AND EVEN THOUGH THERE'S TENSION BETWEEN MANY COUNTRIES AND PRESIDENT TRUMP, THE PRAGMATISTS IN THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WILL WIN OUT. YOU CAN'T IGNORE ALL THESE
MARKETS WITH ALL THEIR CONSUMERS AND A BURGEONING MIDDLE CLASS. >> PAUL LA MONICA, WE WILL HAVE THE L YOU, BEFORE THE DAY OR THE WEEK IS OVER. THANK YOU, SIR. >>> WHEN WE COME BACK, FROM RAILWAYS TO AIRPORT INFRASTRUCTURE, THE PLANES ARE FLYING AGAIN. CO
WHAT DOES IT SAY ABOUT THIS COUNTRY'S ABILITY TO DO THESE PR
LARGE SCALE INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS?
>>> ALSO, TWO PHONE CALLS THAT CHANGED PRESIDENT TRUMP'S MIND WHEN IT CAME TO NAFTA. HE SAYS HE'S STAYING WITH NAFTA FOR THE TIME BEING. IT'S "QUEST MEANS BUSINESS." WE'RE DELIGHTED TONIGHT TO BE IN NIGERIA.


>>> WELCOME BACK. "QUEST MEANS BUSINESS." DELIGHTED TO BE IN LAGOS, IN NIGERIA TONIGHT. GETTING TRAINS AND PLANES AT THE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. INVESTMENT IS NEEDED FOR RAIL INFRASTRUCTURE. THE GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCED IT WOULD SEEK $7 BILLION IN LOANS FROM THE CHINESE TO HELP PAY FOR IT ALL. HOWEVER, THE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT HAS BECOME PERHAPS A GO
WATCHWORD NOT ONLY FOR WHAT'S GOING ON THINGS RIGHT. AN AIRPORT THAT HAD TO BE OUT OF COMMISSION FOR SIX WEEKS, BECAUSE LONG DELAYED REPAIRS HAD FINALLY MADE THE AIRPORT DANGEROUS. >> Reporter: THIS IS WHAT
HAPPENS WHEN YOU WAIT TOO LONG TO FIX A RUNWAY. AFTER YEARS OF BUMPY LANDINGS AND COMPLAINTS FROM AIRLINES, ABUJA INTERNATIONAL WAS FORCED TO SHUT DOWN COMPLETELY FOR SIX WEEKS THIS SPRING, WHILE URGENT REPAIRS WERE CARRIED OUT. >> THE POSSIBILITY WAS THAT MAYBE BY THE END OF THE RAINY SEASON, WE HAVE TO CLOSE THE AIRPORT COMPLETELY. >> Reporter: THE WORK WAS COMPLETED A DAY AHEAD OF SCHEDULE. STILL, THIS SORT OF CARRYING ON IS UNHEARD OF.
THE CAPITAL OF NIGERIA WAS WITHOUT ITS MAIN AIRPORT FOR MORE THAN A MONTH. OFFICIALS SAY THE AGING INFRASTRUCTURE COULDN'T HANDLE THE STRAIN. >> THIS AIRPORT WAS DESIGNED FOR 100,000 PASSENGERS PER ANNUM. TODAY IT'S 6 MILLION. >> Reporter: THIS RUNWAY WAS DESIGNED TO LAST 20 YEARS. IT'S BEEN IN OPERATION NOW FOR NEARLY 35 A SECOND RUNWAY IS BADLY IT'S A PRIME EXAMPLE OF HOW NIGERIA IS STRUGGLING TO PROVIDE KEY SERVICES TO ITS PEOPLE. >> IT'S THE RESULT OF CHRONIC UNDERINVESTMENT. THE INFRASTRUCTURE PROBLEMS ARE
FAR MORE THAN RUNWAYS. THE ROAD NETWORK, FOR EXAMPLE, REQUIRES MASSIVE NEW INVESTMENT. THE DEFERRED MAINTENANCE AND UNDERINVESTMENT IN INFRASTRUCTURE IS LONGSTANDING. >> Reporter: CHINA IS SINKING SOME MONEY INTO INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS. NEVERTHELESS, WITH A POPULATION EXPECTED TO DOUBLE TO NEARLY $400400 MILLION PEOPLE BY MID-CENTURY, NIGERIA'S GROWING PAINS WILL ONLY GET WORSE. THE COLLAPSE IN OIL PRICES PLUNGE PLUNGED PLUNGED NIGERIA DEEP INTO RECESSION.
THE GOVERNMENT HAS A NEW POLICY AI
TO DIVERSIFY ITS ECONOMY AND TO PO
AID THE MORE THAN 60% OF ITS POPULATION LIVING BELOW THE POVERTY AT THE SAME TIME ON THE RISE. THE EVER-PRESENT SPECTER OF CORRUPTION IS EVERYWHERE. >> CORRUPTION IS A FACT OF LIFE. IT RUNS THROUGH THE ECONOMY IN MUCH THE SAME WAY THE EAST RUNS THROUGH DOE. >> Reporter: THE IMF BELIEVES NIGERIA'S ECONOMY WILL GROW BY HALF A PERCENT THIS YEAR AS OIL REVENUES RISE. ABUJA INTERNATIONAL, PLANES ARE
FINALLY TAKING OFF AGAIN. PASSENGERS ARE HAPPY TO HAVE THEIR AIRPORT BACK. >> VERY SWEET. BETTER THAN WHAT WE USED TO KNOW. >> Reporter: REPAIRING THE NIGERIAN ECONOMY WILL BE A MUCH TOUGHER TASK THAN REPAIRING A RUNWAY. >> LET'S PUT ALL THIS INTO MY
PERSPECTIVE. MY NEXT GUEST IS THE WOMAN BEHIND NIGERIA'S CYBER REVOLUTION. SHE'S THE FOUNDER OF THE MAIN ONE CABLE COMPANY. YOU ARE PUTTING FIBER BOTH REGIONALLY AND CONNECTING NIGERIA TO THE REST OF THE TE
WORLD. TELL ME WE STARTED THE COMPANY IN 2008,
AND LAID A SUBMARINE CABLE LANK LINKING NIGERIA WITH BEGANGHA ACROSS THE WORLD. >> HOW DO YOU CONNECT TO THE REST OF THE WORLD AND DOMESTICALLY? >> I THOUGHT WHAT WOULD BE MOST DIFFICULT WAS THE INTERNATIONAL PART, THE FIRST PART WE TOOK ON TO START THE COMPANY. BUT WHAT HAS PROVEN MORE DIFFICULT IS ACTUALLY GETTING ADDITIONAL FUNDING TO DEPLOY INFRASTRUCTURE WITHIN THE COUNTRY, AND THE COST OF THAT FUNDING TO DO THAT.
>> IF YOU THINK YOU'VE GOT PROBLEMS WITH THE COST OF YOUR LOANS, YOU BETTER HAVE A STIFF DRINK CLOSE BY. HOW MUCH ARE INTEREST RATES HERE FOR LOANS? >> NIBOR, THENYNYNY NYNY >> NO COMPANY CAN FOR VERY LONG WITHSTAND THAT SORT OF PRESSURE ON THEIR BALANCE SHEET ON A CAPITAL INTENSIVE PROJECTS LIKE YOURS. >> INDEED, IT IS PUTTING PRESSURE AND SLOWING DOWN OUR ABILITY TO INVEST IN DOMESTIC INFRASTRUCTURE TO GET THE CAPACITY WE HAVE IN INTERNATIONAL WATERS OUT THROUGH ALL OF NIGERIA AND INDEED WEST AFRICA. >> HOW IMPORTANT IS IT, THOUGH? I CAN SEE THE OBVIOUSNESS, CHICKEN AND EGG, WHICH IS BETTER
TO CONNECT, NIGERIA WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD, WHICH WOULD GIVE YOU LARGE COMMERCIAL CONTRACTS FROM BIG COMPANIES, OR NIGERIA DOMESTICALLY, WHICH WOULD INCREASE DOMESTIC PRODUCTION? >> BOTH ARE EQUALLY IMPORTANT. >> AH. >> THE THING IS, THE INTERNATIONAL BIT GETS NIGERIA CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET. AND YOU CANNOT BE SEPARATED FROM THE GLOBAL ECONOMY IN THIS AGE OF GLOBALIZATION. HOWEVER, THE NETWORKS TO DISTRIBUTE THAT IN NIGERIA ARE
SIMPLY NOT GROWING FAST ENOUGH. THE INFRASTRUCTURE IS NOT THE
GROWING FAST ENOUGH TO SUPPORT THE REACH OF THAT INFRASTRUCTURE. >> I NEED TO DRILL DOWN ON THIS POINT OF INFRASTRUCTURE, BECAUSE EVERYBODY SAYS IT, WHETHER IT'S FIBER BETWEEN THE VARIOUS CITIES HERE, WHETHER IT'S AIRPORTS THAT WE'VE JUST BEEN HEARING ABOUT IN MY REPORT. WHOSE RESPONSIBILITY IS IT, AND WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE TO BREAK THE GORDIAN KNOT ON INFRASTRUCTURE? >> WITH REGARDS TO COMMUNICATIONS INFRASTRUCTURE, WE NEED TO FIND OR COST EFFECTIVE WAYS OF DEPLOYING INFRASTRUCTURE, MORE VIABLE
FRAMEWORKS. IF WE LOOK AT ADVANCED ECONOMIES, AS DATA HAS PROLIFERATED, YOU'VE HAD DIFFERENT SETS OF REGULATIONS GOING IN TO FACILITATE SHARING OF INFRASTRUCTURE AND UNBUNDLING BY THE LARGE COMPANIES, SO THAT OTHER COMPANIES CAN RIDE ON THAT SAME INFRASTRUCTURE. AND PEOPLE ARE NOT DEPLOYING PROPRIETARY INFRASTRUCTURE, WHICH IS EXPENSIVE. HERE, WE DEPLOY PROPRIETARY INFRASTRUCTURE, IT IS EXPENSIVE, AND IT'S NOT BRINGING SERVICES TO THE PEOPLE FAST ENOUGH. >> SO FINALLY, I'M GOING TO ASK YOU THE SAME QUESTION THAT I ASKED MY PREVI ASKED THEM ALL. IS THERE ROOM FOR OPTIMISTIC IN ALL OPTIMISM IN ALL OF THIS? >> YES, THERE'S ROOM FOR
OPTIMISM, IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT WE'VE ACHIEVED DESPITE THE ODDS OVER THE LAST SEVEN YEARS, WE'VE SEEN ADDRESSABLE DEMAND IN THIS MARKET AND CAPACITY TO UTILIZE WHAT WE HAVE. >> GOOD TO SEE YOU, GOOD OF YOU TO BE WITH US TONIGHT. >>> TODAY WE ARE IN NIGERIA. WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A COMPANY IN TRANSMISSION AND TRANSFORMATION. ALL THIS WEEK WE'VE BEEN EXPLORING ANOTHER COUNTRY THAT'S
GOING THROUGH A SIMILAR, PERHAPS MORE ADVANCED BUT AT LEAST WELL-APPROACHED. THE POSITION OF COURSE IN MALAYSIA. NOW, THERE THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY IS HAVING TO BALANCE CULTURAL SENSIBILITIES WITH COMMERCIAL REALITIES. AND AS I DISCOVERED ON A RECENT VISIT TO KUALA LUMPUR, TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY, YOU CAN HAVE BOTH. >> Reporter: HALAL IS NOW A GROWING AND IMPORTANT PART OF THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY. I DISCOVER ONE OF KUALA LUMPUR'S HALAL HOTELS. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN IN PRACTICE? >> THIS IS GOING TO BE A HALAL BREAKFAST. I'M NERVOUS.
THE FACT YOU TELL ME I'M HAVING A HALAL BREAKFAST. IT LOOKS REMARKABLY NORMAL. >> YES. >> Reporter: AS YOU MIGHT EXPECT, ALL THE RESTAURANTS AND THE KITCHENS ON THE PROPERTY GO THROUGH THE PROCESS OF BEING HALAL HALAL-CERTIFIED. >> WHO SUPPLIES THE EGGS, WHERE DO WE GET THE SAUSAGE FROM, WHERE DO WE GET THE HASH BROWNS FROM. THIS IS DONE BY OUR HALAL OFFICER, HE GOES AROUND AND CHECKS ALL OF THESE ARE CERTIFIED. >> Reporter: IF THE OPER
>> IF THE KORAN IS YOUR BASIC OPERATING DOES THE ISLAMIFICATION GO?
>> WE DON'T GO TO THE EXTREME. IT'S NORMAL, LIKE A NORMAL HOTEL. > Reporter: THROUGHOUT THE PROPERTY, THERE ARE SUBTLE AND TACTFUL REMINDERS THAT THE HOTEL ADHERES TO ISLAMIC PRINCIPLES. AT THIS BUFFET, THIS SIGN. EAT AND DRINK, BUT WASTE NOT BY EXCESS. WE COULD ALL AGREE WITH THAT. WITH RULES AND REGULATIONS, WITH A SHARIAH LAW EXECUTIVE ON STAFF, ALL THE BUSINESS OPERATIONS AND STAFF ADHERE TO
THE SAME PRINCIPLES WITH ISLAM IN MIND. >> I'M NOT JUST FOCUSED ON KITCHEN. WE ARE LOOKING FOR TRAINING FOR STAFF AND PRAYER WITH STAFF, HOUSEKEEPING. HO
I HAVE TO MAKE SURE THE HOUSEKEEPING AND THE AMENITIES IT PROVIDES. >> Reporter: THE HOTEL MAY BE HALAL BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THEY'RE WATCHING EVERY MOVE YOU MAKE. SOME GUESTS DO BRING ALCOHOL INTO THE PROPERTY. NOW, THERE'S ONLY ONE THING LEFT TO DO. RETIRE TO MY ROOM. >> MALAYSIA'S BEST RESTAURANT,
2015. >> Reporter: AS A NON-MUSLIM, I ARRIVED AT THIS HALAL BRANDED HOTEL PERHAPS A LITTLE PREJUDICED, WARY ABOUT WHAT THE EXPERIENCE WOULD BE LIKE. AND THEN I REALIZED IT'S LIKE ANY OTHER HOTEL. THERE'S A LOBBY, A LOUNGE, A RESTAURANT, A GYM. AND WITH THE EXCEPTION OF NO ALCOHOL, WHEN IT COMES TO THE BEDROOMS, THERE ARE ONLY SUBTLE DIFFERENCES. THE CORE REMAINS MAKING SURE I GET A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP. >> FROM COULD YOUAL AL LAGOS, NIGERIA. >>> COMING UP, THE BUILDING WE
ARE IN TONIGHT, THE INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL, YOU CAN PRETTY MUCH SEE IT ANYWHERE, THE FAIRY LIGHTS. "QUEST MEANS BUSINESS."


>>> HELLO, I'M RICHARD QUEST. THERE IS MORE "QUEST MEANS BUSINESS" FROM LAGOS, NIGERIA IN JUST A MOMENT. >>> PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS HE WILL STAY IN NAFTA FOR THE TIME BEING. >>> AND WE'LL MEET THE TWO ENTREPRENEURS HERE IN NIGERIA WHO HAVE CREATED AND MANUFACTURED THE COUNTRY'S FIRST SMARTPHONE. WHY ON EARTH WOULD THEY BOTHER TO DO THAT WHEN THERE ARE SO MANY COMING FROM CHINA? >>> FIRST, THIS IS CNN, AND ON THIS NETWORK, THE NEWS ALWAYS COMES FIRST.
>>> UNITED AIRLINES HAS REACHED A CONFIDENTIAL SETTLEMENT WITH A PASSENGER WHO WAS DRAGGED OFF A PLANE ON APRIL THE 9th. I'LL HAVE MORE DETAILS, WE'LL TALK ABOUT IT AFTER THIS NEWS BULLETIN. >>> IN LONDON, BRITISH POLICE HAVE ARRESTED A MAN ON SUSPICION OF PLANNING AN ACT OF TERRORISM. THE 27-YEAR-OLD SUSPECT FROM
LONDON WAS CARRYING KNIVES NEAR PRIME MINISTER THERESA MAY'S OFFICE AT THE PARLIAMENT BUILDING. OFFICERS BEFORE HIS ARREST NO ONE WAS INJURED. >>> THE PENTAGON OPENED AN INVESTIGATION INTO FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER MICHAEL FLYNN, ACCUSED OF RECEIVING PAYMENTS FROM A RUSSIAN TV STATION WITHOUT DISCLOSING IT. NEW DOCUMENTS SHOW FLYNN WAS
WARNED BY THE DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE AGENCY IN 2014 NOT TO ACCEPT FOREIGN PAYMENTS AS HE ENTERED RETIREMENT. >>> U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAS MET WITH ARGENTINA'S PRESIDENT AT THE WHITE HOUSE ON THURSDAY WHERE THEY DISCUSSED TRADE, SECURITY, AND VENEZUEL SITUATION. TRUMP DESCRIBED HIM AS "MY GOOD FIEND FOR MANY REFERRING TO THEIR PAST RELATIONSHIP WHEN BOTH WERE IN BUSINESS.
>>> GERMAN CHANCELLOR ANGELA MERKEL IS WARNING BRITONS NOT TO DELUDE THEMSELVES ABOUT WHAT BREXIT MEANS FOR BRITAIN'S FUTURE. SHE SAYS THE BLOC WOULD ONLY AGREE ON FUTURE TIES WITH LONDON AFTER THEY'VE AGREED ON A DEAL TO DIVORCE. >> Translator: DEAR COLLEAGUES, YOU MIGHT THINK THIS IS A MATTER OF COURSE, BUT UNFORTNATELY SOME PEOPLE IN GREAT BRITAIN HAVE ILLUSIONS. OEUVRE HOWEVER, THIS WOULD BE TIME WASTED.


>>> UNITED AIRLINES HAS WITH REMARKABLE SPEED REACHED A SETTLEMENT WITH DR. DAVID DOW, TH
THE DOCTOR WHO WAS DRAGGED OFF CH
THE UNITED AIRLINES PLACE FROM CHICAGO NO FINANCIAL DETAILS H THE STATEMENT ISSUED BY DR. DOW'S LAWYERS SAY UNITED HAS TAKEN FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR
WHAT HAPPENED ON FLIGHT 3411 WITHOUT ATTEMPTING TO BLAME OTHERS. FOR THIS ACCEPTANCE OF CORPORATE ACCOUNTABILITY, UNITED IS TO BE APPLAUDED. RYAN YOUNG JOINS ME FROM CHICAGO. RYAN, I READ THE STATEMENT, AND COME ON, RYAN, EVERYONE WANTS TO KNOW HOW MUCH. I REALIZE THE STATEMENT SAYS THAT NUMBER WILL NOT BE DISCLOSED. BUT WHAT ARE THE RUMORS AND WHAT IS THE LEAKING NUMBER?
>> Reporter: WOW, WHAT A BIG CONVERSATION HERE. OF COURSE WE TALKED ABOUT THIS SEVERAL WEEKS AGO, AND EVERYBODY THOUGHT AT THAT TIME WE WERE TALKING ABOUT MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WHEN IT CAME TO A SETTLEMENT OR A LAWSUIT. AND NOW WE'LL NEVER KNOW THAT NUMBER. WE DO KNOW THAT UNITED HAS TAKEN A HIT IN TERMS OF NOT ONLY PR BUT THEIR STOCK PRICE IN TERMS OF THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL MARKET IN TERMS OF HOW PEOPLE EVEN VIEW UNITED. THAT IS A CONVERSATION. EVERY TIME YOU BRING UP UNITED, YOU SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE INTERNET,
YOU KNOW THEY WERE TAKING A
BEATING. TODAY, OVERNIGHT, UNITED RELEASED SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR INVESTIGATION AND MOVES THEY WERE GOING TO DO GOING FORWARD TO STOP SOMETHING LIKE THIS FROM EVER HAPPENING AGAIN. ON THE SAME DAY, YOU HAVE A SETTLEMENT. THIS SEEMS VERY COORDINATED AND WELL DONE TO PICK THE PIECES BACK UP AFTER THE BEATING THEY'VE BEEN TAKING IN PUBLIC BECAUSE OF THIS NASTY, NASTY PR NIGHTMARE.
>> I READ THE REPORT, RYAN. AND NOT ONLY DOES IT SAY WE ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY. THERE'S A PARTICULAR LINE EARLY IN THE REPORT WHICH SAYS, THESE WERE THE POLICIES THAT FAILED, THESE WERE THE ACTIONS THAT WENT WRONG, OR WORDS TO THAT EFFECT. FAR FROM NOW TRYING TO DENY WHAT TOOK PLACE, THAT REPORT IS VERY SPECIFIC ABOUT HOW THEY FAILED, ISN'T IT? >> AND I THINK THAT'S A GREAT POINT HERE. THEY TALKED ABOUT FOUR THINGS THAT THEY CONSIDERED FAILURES IN THAT REPORT. ONE WAS CALLING IN LAW ENFORCEMENT WHEN THER SECURITY OR SAFETY ISSUE. THE OTHER WAS REBOOKING EMPLOYEES AT THE LAST MINUTE.
ANOTHER WAS NOT OFFERING ENOUGH COMPENSATION OR CONVENIENT TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS TO GET CUSTOMERS TO WILLINGLY GIVE UP THEIR SEATS. AND FAILING TO GIVE THE EMPLOYEES TRAINING AND AUTHORITY TO RESOLVE THE SITUATION. WE NOW SEE MOVING FORWARD THEY'VE ACTUALLY AUTHORIZED TICKET A LITTLE BIT ANDG GATE TO OFFER UP TO $10,000 BEFORE SOMEONE IS REMOVED OFF A FLIGHT LIKE THIS. YOU ALREADY SEE THE WORDS OF CUSTOMER SERVICE BEING REINSERTED INTO THE CONVERSATION, SO IN THE FUTURE THEY CAN DE-FUSE THE SITUATION. THE CHICAGO DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION STILL HAS FOUR SUSPENDED OFFICERS THAT THEY'LL BE REVIEWING IN TERMS OF THEIR
OWN INVESTIGATION. THIS MIGHT NOT BE THE LAST SETTLEMENT THAT DR. DOW GETS, BECAUSE THERE IS SOME PENDING LITIGATION GOING ON WITH THE CITY OF CHICAGO. AND THERE ARE OTHER PASSENGERS WHO WERE ON THAT PLANE WHO ALSO MAY CLAIM EMOTIONAL DISTRESS. THIS MIGHT NOT BE OVER FOR UNITED AS WELL. >> BUT THE SPEED, RYAN, AT WHICH ACRO
THEY SEEM TO HAVE SETTLED ACROSS ALL FRONTS RYAN, THANK YOU FOR THAT.
LOOK, RYAN, IF YOU FIND OUT THAT
NUMBER, JUST WHISPER IT INTO MY HERE AT SOME POINT, I PROMISE YOU IT WILL GO NO FURTHER. RYAN, JOINING ME FROM CHICAGO. >>> GRIDLOCKED NO MORE. NAFTA WILL STAY FOR THE TIME BEING, SAYS PRESIDENT TRUMP, AS HE ATTEMPTS TO RENEGOTIATE AND MODERNIZE THE TREATY BETWEEN CANADA, THE U.S., AND MEXICO.


>>> PRESIDENT TRUMP NOW SAYS THAT HE WILL GIVE NAFTA MORE TIME BEFORE BACKING OFF THE THREATS TO PULL THE U.S. OUT OF THE TRADE TREATY WITH CANADA AND MEXICO. NOW, SOURCES TOLD CNN ON WEDNESDAY THAT A PULLOUT WAS A DISTINCT POSSIBILITY. NOW PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS HE WILL WORK TO MAKE NAFTA WORK INSTEAD. >> R NAFTA, WHICH WOULD BE A PRETTY BIG, YOU KNOW, SHOCK TO THE SYSTEM, WE WILL RENEGOTI NOW, IF I'M UNABLE TO MAKE A A
FAIR DEAL, IF I'M UNABLE TO MAKE A FAIR DEAL FOR THE UNITED STATES, MEANING A FAIR DEAL FOR OUR WORKERS AND OUR COMPANIES, I WILL TERMINATE NAFTA.
>> NOW, PRESIDENT TRUMP CHANGED HIS MIND AFTER SPEAKING ON THE PHONE TO THE PRESIDENT OF MEXICO AND THE PRIME MINISTER OF CANADA. NAFTA, YOU'LL BE AWARE, THE TREATY BETWEEN THE THREE COUNTRIES, IT'S $1.2 TRILLION IN CROSS-BORDER ACTIVITY THAT IS AT STAKE. THE ESTIMATES SAY SOME 14 MILLION U.S. JOBS DEPEND ON TRADE WITH NAFTA. JOINING ME WITH THOUGHTS ON THE FUTURE, THE FORMER CANADIAN AMBASSADOR TO BOTH THE U.S. AND MEXICO. AMBASSADOR, WERE YOU SURPRISED AT THIS ABOUT-TURN WHICH SEEMS
TO BE IN LINE WITH OTHER THINGS THE U.S. PRESIDENT HAS SAID, WHEN SEEMINGLY HE GETS THE FACTS RATHER THAN THE CAMPAIGN RHETORIC? >> I WAS CERTAINLY SURPRISED, BECAUSE THE POSITION HAS KEPT CHANGING IN THE LAST A WE'LL HAVE TO WAIT AND HIS WHA HIS NEXT POSITION IS.

>> HOW -- >> AND THE MOMENT -- >> -- REALISTIC IS IT -- I'M SORRY, FORGIVE ME. HOW REALISTIC IS IT TO UNDERGO THIS RENEGOTIATION WHEN THERE ARE VERY DIFFERENT GOALS AND AMBITIONS? SOME WANT MODERNIZATION BUT THE U.S. WANTS WHOLESALE RENEGOTIATION. >> NOBODY KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT RENEGOTIATION MEANS AT THE MOMENT. IS THE PRESIDENT TALKING JUST ABOUT A TWEAKING OF THE AGREEMENT? IS IT A MAJOR RENEGOTIATION? IS IT THE MODERNIZATION OF THE
AGREEMENT? NOBODY KNOWS. AND UNTIL WE SEE WHAT EXACTLY WILL BE IN THAT NOTICE FROM THE WHITE HOUSE TO CONGRESS ABOUT WHAT THE AMERICANS WOULD LIKE TO PUT INTO THIS NEGOTIATION, WE'LL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE. IN CANADA I GUESS WE'LL ADJUST TO WHATEVER EMERGES FROM YOUR SIDE. WE DON'T KNOW. >> SO IN THAT SCENARIO, WELL, WE DON'T KNOW, BUT LET'S JUST TAKE -- BECAUSE YOU LET'S TAKE THIS DECISION TO IMPOSE TARIFFS ON LUMBER, AND AT THE SAME TIME THE U.S. LOSES A DAIRY WTO ACTION WITH MEXICO. THE DISPUTES ARE THERE. AND THE U.S. SEEMS TO BE TURNING UP THE RHETORIC. CERTAINLY WHEN YOU START IMPOSING TARIFFS ON A FRIENDLY COUNTRY LIKE CANADA. >> OF COURSE. FA
ON THE LUMBER ISSUE, I'M VERY FAMILIAR WITH WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS.
CLEARLY WE WERE VERY UPSET WITH THE IMPOSITION OF THOSE PRELIMINARY DUTIES, SUBSIDIES, A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO, OF ABOUT 20%. THAT'S CERTAINLY NOT JUSTIFIED, IN OUR VIEW. AND NOW WE HAVE TO WAIT TO SEE WHAT THE ANTIDUMPING RULES WILL BE IN JUNE. THIS MEANS THOUSANDS OF JOBS
LOST. IT IS NOT A HAPPY TIME IN THE TRADE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN OUR TWO COUNTRIES. BUT WE'LL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE HOW IT'S GOING TO EVOLVE. THE WAY I SEE IT, FOLLOWING THE ANTI-DUMPING DUTIES IN JUNE, TOWARDS THE END OF THIS YEAR, NOVEMBER, DECEMBER, WE WILL HAVE A DEFINITE RULING ON THE SUBSIDY WH
AND CANADA WILL HAVE TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT. CLEARLY I THINK IT WILL HAVE TO GO TO THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION, WHERE CANADA HAS WON IN THE PAST ALL THOSE CASES. BUT IT'S UNFORTUNATE, BECAUSE IF
WE TAKE THAT ROUTE, IT'S A VERY LONG AND ARDUOUS ROUTE. >> SIR, GOOD TO TALK TO YOU, THANK YOU FOR TALKING TO US TONIGHT. PUT IN THAT PERSPECTIVE, I KNOW WE'LL TALK AGAIN, AS THE NAFTA ISSUE GETS FURTHER. >>> NOW, AS THE RECESSION TOOK HOLD HERE IN MY JEER I CAN'T, BUSINESSES ARE NOW LOOKING TO THE RECOVERY TO HELP THEM GROW THEIR BUSINESS. AUTO INDUSTRY SALES FELL OVER THE LAST 12 MONTHS, LARGELY ON THE BACK OF NOT ONLY A RECESSION BUT ALSO A WEAKENING CURRENCY, WHICH HAS BECOME DEVALUED QUITE CONSIDERABLY. THE GOVERNMENT ALSO RAISED IMPORT DUTIES. SO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TARIFFS
WITH CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES. ISSU
NIGERIA HAS ITS OWN TARIFF ISSUES WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD. THE MANAGING DIRECTOR OF TOYOTA IN NIGERIA JONES ME. GOOD TO SEE YOU. >> THANKS FOR HAVING ME. >> THIS ISSUE OF TARIFFS, IMPORT
TARIFFS, IT'S A VERY REAL PROBLEM FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELVES. >> YES, IT IS. IF YOU ADD THE TARIFF WITH THE DEVALUATION OF THE NIRA, IT CREATES A DOUBLE IMPACT. BY VIRTUE OF THAT, PEOPLE ARE NOT ABLE TO BUY AS MUCH AS THEY USED TO BUY IN THE PAST. SO IT CAUSES A MAJOR ISSUE. CONSIDERING THAT BUSINESSES ARE DOWN, THEIR PROFITS ARE LOW, SO IN TERMS OF GETTING REVENUE TO BUY ADDITIONAL, YOU KNOW, COMMODITIES, PEOPLE HAVE
PRIORITIZED A LOT MORE NOW. >> SO YOUR CHOICES IN THAT SCENARIO, I MEAN, YOU OBVIOUSLY EITHER TAKE A HIT ON NUMBER OF SALES, YOU JUST DON'T SELL AS MANY CARS, OWR YOU TAKE A HIT O THE MARGIN AND PERHAPS LOSE MONEY ON THE CARS YOU SELL, OR YOU TRY A BALANCE OF THE TWO. WHICH IS IT? WH
>> WELL, WE TRY TO PRIORITIZE WHICH V IMPORTANT FOR -- YOU KNOW, T ARE STILL IN DEMAND, ESPECIALLY THE COMMERCIAL VEHICLES. THOSE WERE THE KINDS OF THINGS THAT WE TRIED TO DO LAST YEAR.
WE REALIZED THAT IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE FOR US TO SPREAD OUT WINGS AND BRING IN ALL THE DIFFERENT MODELS THAT WE USED TO PUSH AND MARKET IN THE COUNTRY. SO WE'VE SHRUNK IT DOWN AND PRIORITIZED AND ENSURED THAT WE'RE FOCUSING ON THE MODELS THAT WILL GIVE US THE BEST REVENUE AND RETURNS. >> THAT MODEL, THAT STRATEGY, IS IT WORKING? OR, FRANKLY, HAVE YOU JUST GOT TOO MANY HEADWINDS, THAT IT'S ALMOST INSURMOUNTABLE UNTIL ECONOMIC GROWTH PICKS UP AGAIN? >> OKAY. WELL, SO IN NIGERIA, WE HAVE BEEN PUTTING IN PLACE RISK MANAGEMENT IN THE PAST THREE
YEARS. AND WHEN THE RECESSION HIT LAST YEAR, WE WERE PREPARED. BY VIRTUE OF THAT, SUSTAINABILITY WAS KEY. WE ENSURED THAT WE MUST MAXIMIZE OUR RETURNS ON EACH VEHICLE. SO LAST YEAR, EVEN THOUGH THE ECONOMY WAS BAD, BECAUSE OF THE PREPARATION THAT WE HAD ENDED THE YEAR IN A GOOD, EVEN BETTER FINANCIALLY THAN THE PREVIOUS YEAR. AND THIS WAS BECAUSE OF THE OPT OPTIMIZATION WE HAD. >> THE WAY THAT GLOBAL COMPANIES KNOW THEY HAVE TO BE IN NIGERIA BUT AT THE SAME TIME STRUGGLE WITH THE DOMESTIC PROBLEMS, IT'S THIS CATCH-22.
YOU'VE GOT TO BE HERE BECAUSE THE MARKET IS SO BIG, BUT MANAGING IT IS DIFFICULT. >> IT IS VERY DIFFICULT. IN NIGERIA, LIKE IN OTHER COUNTRIES, YOU HAVE TO BE PRETTY MUCH HANDS-ON. IF YOU HAVE YOUR BUSINESS AND YOU'RE NOT TAKING CARE OF -- YOU KNOW, PEOPLE DON'T SOMETIMES KNOW WHAT IS REQUIRED OF THEM. AND YOU HAVE TO BE VERY, VERY HANDS-ON AND ENSURE THAT YOUR STAFF -- YOU KNOW, COMMUNICATIONS IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT'S HELPED US AS A COMPANY. COMMUNICATING, LETTING EVERYBODY KNOW WHAT IS REQUIRED OF THEM, AND BY VIRTUE OF THAT ABLE TO GET GOOD RUNS, GOOD AND BETWEEN US, OUR CUSTOMERS,
RESULTS. AN AND THE PEOPLE WHO PATRONIZE OUR PRODUCTS. >> GOOD TO SEE YOU, SIR. >> A PLEASURE.
>> THANKS VERY MUCH INDEED. IT'S A WARM TONIGHT, ISN'T IT? >> YES, IT IS. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH INDEED. >>> LET'S STAY IN NIGERIA, WHERE 25% OF THE WORLD'S FOOD SUPPLY GOES TO WASTE GLOBALLY. THAT'S THE NUMBER GLOBALLY THAT TAKES PLACE. IN AFRICA, BIG BUSINESSES WORK WITH LOCAL PRODUCERS TO REDUCE THE PROBLEM OF EXACTLY HOW MUCH FOOD GOES TO WASTE. IN REALITY, THERE'S A SIMPLE
SOLUTION. AND IT ALL COMES DOWN TO A PIECE OF PAPER.


>> FOR ME, I THINK PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS IS LIVING A LIFE WHERE YOUR WORK IS YOUR CALLING. I'M 32 YEARS OLD AND THE FOUNDER OF FRESH PAPER. FRESH PAPER IS A REALLY SIMPLE CONCEPT. IT'S A PIECE OF PAPER INFUSED WITH ORGANIC SPECIALIZES. YOU CAN DROP THE WHERE YOU STORE PRODUCE TO KEEP IT FRESHER, LONGER. IT WAS INSPIRED BY A HOME REMEDY MY GRANDMOTHER IN INDIA GAVE ME TO DRINK. I HAD BEEN WARNED TO AVOID DRINK TAP WATER. SO MY GRANDMOTHER GAVE MOW THIS HOMEMADE SPICE TEA AND I ENDED UP NOT GETTING SICK. I WAS THINKING OF PEOPLE LIKE MY GRANDMOTHER WHO GREW UP WITHOUT ACCESS TO A REFRIGERATOR.
I NEVER IMAGINED THAT FRESH PAPER WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT'S USED BY PEOPLE ALL OVER THE GLOBE. I STARTED OUT BY JUST MAKING FRESH PAPER IN THE KITCHEN OF MY STUDIO APARTMENT. I HAD VERY LITTLE FUNDING. I ACTUALLY STARTED WITH LIKE LESS THAN $500. AND I WAS DOING EVERYTHING BY HAND. I HAD NO IDEA THAT FOOD WASTE IS SUCH A MASSIVE GLOBAL CHALLENGE. FOR ME, IT WAS EXCITING WHEN FRESH PAPER REALLY TOOK OFF. WE'RE WORKING WITH FOOD BANKS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES, WORKING TECHNOLOGY, THIS VERY
TECHNOLOGY TO PEOPLE THAT CAN TRULY BENEFIT FROM IT. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR THAT MY STORY INSPIRES OTHERS, THAT THERE IS MORE POSSIBLE FOR THEM THAN THEY MAY EVEN REALIZE. >>> WHEN WE COME BACK AFTER THE BREAK, THIS LOOKS LIKE AN EVERYDAY PHONE. I'VE GOT AN INSTANT FACT FOR YOU. IT'S MADE IN NIGERIA, MADE IN
THIS COUNTRY. THE TWO FOUNDERS WHO ARE MAKING IT EXPLAIN WHY THIS IS A CRUCIAL PART OF A STRATEGY. AFTER ALL, WHO WANTS TO MAKE MOBILE PHONES? "QUEST MEANS BUSINESS," LIVE IN LAGOS.


>>> "QUEST MEANS BUSINESS" LIVE IN LAGOS. MADE IN NIGERIA IS PART OF THE STRATEGY OF THE GOVERNMENT, PART OF ITS DIVERSIFICATION POLICY. WITH ME ARE TWO GENTLEMEN WHO HAVE MADE A PHONE, A SMARTPHONE IN THIS COUNTRY. THEY'RE FOUNDERS OF AFRO ONE. SHOW US THE PHONE, YOU'VE BOTH GOT ONE. MADE
>> HERE IS THE SMARTPHONE, IT'S MADE LOCALLY, WE LAUNCHED OUR FIRST FACTORY ONE WEEK AGO. IT'S A 20,000 SQUARE FEET STATE OF THE ART FACILITY BASED IN LAGOS. >> WHY BUILD A PHONE IN NIGERIA WHEN FRANKLY THERE ARE NO SHORTAGE OF FACTORIES MAKING PHONES? >> THE COMPANY IS CALLED CONTACT
GLOBAL. WE DO A LOT OF IT PROJECTS ACROSS AFRICA. WE FOUND A GAP, WE THINK WE CAN MEET IT. WE'RE COMING IN AT A MUCH CHEAPER PRICE AND A BETTER PRODUCT. >> BASICALLY YOU HAVE 110% MOBILE PENETRATION RATE. ONLY 30% OF THAT IS SMARTPHONES. WITH THE YOUTH POPULATION OF NIGERIA BEING ALMOST 50%, NOBODY IS COMING IN TO BUY A FEATURE PHONE IN THE YEARS TO COME. >> HOW DO WE KNOW YOUR PHONE IS A DECENT PHONE, NOT JUST A ME-TOO OF AN HUAWEI OR ONE OF THE CHINESE PHONES? AT THE END OF THE DAY, THE ASPIRATIONAL PHONES ARE THE SAMSUNGS AND THE >> WE DO IT BECAUSE WE WANT TO
CREATE A RECURRING REVENUE ON THE PHONE THROUGH OUR E-ECOSYSTEM, WHICH IS E-EDUCATION, E-LEARNING. >> SMART IDENTIFICATION. >> BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT YOUR COMPANY IS ABOUT, ISN'T IT? IT'S ABOUT RUNNING THE E-IDENTIFICATION FOR EVERYBODY IN THIS COUNTRY. AND FRANKLY, WHAT YOU'RE BUILDING HERE IS THE GILLETTE RAZOR, YOU KNOW THE SYNDROME, YOU'LL VIRTUALLY GIVE AWAY THE PHONE AND CHARGE PEOPLE FOR THE RAZORS.
>> AS LONG AS EVERYBODY GETS A GILLETTE RAZOR, WE'RE GOOD. IT WILL BE A PLATFORM FOR LEARNING, DOING SO MANY THINGS IN THE FUTURE. WE'RE JUMPING THE BARRIER RIGHT NOW OF HAVING A TECH INFRASTRUCTURE THAT IS A LITTLE BIT WEAK. WE'RE EMPOWERING THE PEOPLE. >> AS LONG AS WE RECOGNIZE GILLETTE TO BE A SUPERIOR BRAND AND AFFORDABLE PRICE, WE'RE HAPPY TO BE THE GILLETTE OF PHONES IN NIGERIA AND AFRICA. >> I CAN HONESTLY SAY WHEN I HEARD ABOUT THIS STORY, I THOUGHT THE LAST THING I WAS GOING TO F A MOBILE PHONE IN NIGERIA. HOW IS THE SALES GOING, IN A
WORD? >> PHENOMENAL. >> WE'RE SOLD OUT, COMPLETELY SOLD OUT. WE WOULD LOVE TO INVITE YOU TO THE FACTORY. >> I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO SAY I WOULD LOVE TO GIVE YOU A PHONE. ALL I GOT WAS AN INVITATION TO THE FACTOR GREAT. STORY OF MY LIFE. THANK YOU, GENTLEMEN. >> THANK YOU FOR HAVING US.
>> WE'LL HAVE A PROFITABLE MOMENT FROM LAGOS AFTER THE BREAK. "QUEST MEANS BUSINESS," LIVE IN NIGERIA.


>>> TONIGHT'S PROFITABLE MOMENT FROM LAGOS. IT IS TEMPTING WHEN YOU ARRIVE IN NIGERIA TO PRETTY MUCH FOCUS ON THE BAD THINGS, WHETHER IT'S THE INFRASTRUCTURE, THE CORRUPTION, THE ISSUES OF SAFETY IN THE NIGER DELTA. THAT WOULD BE A SERIOUS AND GRAVE MISTAKE. THE REALITY IS, ALTHOUGH THEY CAN'T BE IGNORED, THEY'RE ONLY PART OF THE STORY. THE WAY THE GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO TURN THINGS AROUND ISN'T ENOUGH, OF COURSE IT'S NOT, BUT AT LEAST IT'S A START. MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL, AS WE'LL INTRODUCE TO YOU OVER THE NEXT DAY OR SO, THE YOUNG PEOPLE. VIBRANT, EXCITING, EDUCATED, INTELLIGENT, WILLING TO WORK, ENTREPRENEURS YOU'VE MET TONIGHT, DETERMINED TO SEE THEIR COUNTRY MOVE INTO THE FIRST
LEAGUE. A LONG WAY TO GO, TO BE SURE, BUT AT LEAST THEY'VE BEGUN THE PROCESS. AND AS WE ALWAYS SAY, WE'LL BE HERE TOMORROW NIGHT. THAT'S "QUEST MEANS BUSINESS" FOR TONIGHT. I'M RICHARD QUEST IN LAGOS, NIGERIA. WHATEVER YOU'RE UP TO IN THE HOURS AHEAD, I HOPE IT'S PROFITABLE. I'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.


>>> A NEW INVESTIGATION, DONALD TRUMP'S ANY SECURITY ADVISER IS FACING SKRUT SNI. >>> A NORTH KOREAN MISSILE STRIKE. >>> AND TWO SON OF VENEZUELAN LEADERS TAKE DIFFERENT SIDES OVER THE PROTESTS. THANKS FOR BEING WITH US. WELCOME TO CNN TODAY. >>> WELL, NEW DETAILS AND A NEW INVESTIGATION INTO DONALD TRUMP'S FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER, MIKE M FLYNN. >> WE LEARNED THEY OPENED ITS OWN PROBE EVEN THOUGH HE WAS WARNED AGAINST DOING JUST THAT BACK IN 2014. WE ARE FOLLOWING ALL OF THE DEVELOPMENTS JOINING US NOW LIVE FROM WASHINGTON.
YET ANOTHER REVELATION THAT IS RAISING SUSPICIONS OVER TIES. >> AND HIRING MICHAEL FLYNN TO BE THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER. THE WHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN DEFLECTING QUESTIONS THAT APPROVED CERTAIN SECURITY CLEARANCES BACK IN 2016. TODAY DEMOCRATS DEMANDING MORE FROM THE WHITE HOUSE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT CONVERSATIONS OCCUR OCCURRED. UNDER FIRE AND NOW INVESTIGATION. >> WE HAVE NO INFORMATION THAT
HE OBTAINED FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE TO ACCEPT ANY PAYMENTS AS REQUIRED BY HOW. >> HE WARNED HIM IN 2014 ABOUT ACCEPTING ANY FOREIGN PAYMENTS. >>.
>> THANK YOU FOR INVITING ME AND HAVING ME HERE. >> HE PAID BY THE NEW STATION RT WHERE HE ALSO DINED WITH PUTIN. NOW SEEKING ITS OWN INVESTIGATION INTO WHETHER FLYNN BROKE THE LAW. DI
THIS AFTER FLYNN FAILED TO DISCLOSE FOREIGN PAYMENTS. >> DO YOU BELIEVE HE MAY HAVE BROKEN THE LAW? >> I DON'T KNOW WHETHER HE DID OR DID NOT. THAT'S WHY WE HAVE AN
INVESTIGATION. >> NOW PRAEK BREAKING DOWN ALONG PARTY LINES. THE WHITE HOUSE HAS REFUSED TO PREVIED CERTAIN REC ARE NOT RELEVANT TO THE FLYNN INVESTIGATION WHICH PLOFRPTED TO ACCUSE THE WHITE HOUSE OF A COVER UP. >> HE ALSO SIDE THEY DIDN'T HAVE DOCUMENTS. REMEMBER THAT? COME ON. THESE GUYS ARE PLAYING GAMES. WHEN YOU SEE SPICER YOU CAN TELL HIM I SAID THAT TODAY. >> WHITE HOUSE SPOKE TO SEAN
SPICER SAID THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WAS TO BLAME AND BUSHED BACK ON CUMMINGS ATTACK. >> I WAS TAKEN BACK BECAUSE THEY ARE FRANKLY NOT TRUE. WHAT WE DID WAS NOT REFER HIM. >> MICHAEL FLYNN. >> THEY ARE RUNNING INTO RESISTANCE FOR REPUBLICAN CHAIRMAN. ARE YOU SATISFIED W TO GET THESE DOCUMENTS? >> NO. NO. >> EARLIER THIS AFTERNOON SHA ISSUED A STATEMENT SAYING THEY DISAGREE WITH THE DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSMAN'S INTERPRETATION OF THE LETTER THAT SAYS THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE NO SUPPORT WHETHER OR NOT SHEHE GOT PERMISSION SA
THERE IS REDACTED LANGUAGE THAT ACTUALLY SUPPORTS THEIR CLAIM. THEY SAID THE DEPARTMENT WAS FULLY AWARE OF THIS TRIP BUT ACTUALLY THE ISSUE IS WHETHER OR GOT PERMISSION FOR PAYMENTS. WE DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT QUITE YET. >> WE ALL TALK ABOUT WHETHER THERE IS SMOKE THERE IS FIRE. IS SOMEONE SEEING FLAMES WITH THIS? HOW BAD COULD IT BE? >> I DON'T THINK WE KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT. MICHAEL FLYNN IS THERE ARE SEVERAL INVESTIGATIONS ON CAPITOL HILL ABOUT THE ISSUE OF RUSSIA AND LOOKING AT TRUMP CAMPAIGN TIES. YOU CAN BET MICHAEL FLYNN IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT. >> THERE ARE SEVERAL INVESTIGATIONS. IT SOUNDS LIKE -- BECAUSE YOU
ASKED THAT QUESTION AT THE END, ARE YOU SATISFIED WITH THE PUSH TO GET THESE DOCUMENTS FROM THE WHITE HOUSE AND HE SAID NO. ARE WE SEEING SOME PARTISAN CRACKS HERE? >> ABSOLUTELY. TODAY DOES PRETTY SIGNIFICANT IN THAT REGARD. NOT JUST THAT ON GETTING DOCUMENTS BUT WHETHER OR NOT HE SHOULD COME AND TESTIFY. DEMOCRATS WANT TO HEAR HIM TESTIFY. HE SAID NO. FI
HE RESISTED THAT BECAUSE OF A FIGHT AN C
THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE, HE IS SAYING IT'S THEIR JOB TO DO IT, NOT OURS. THEY ARE IN THE MINORITY SO THEY CAN'T DO A LOT OTHER THAN COMPLAIN ABOUT IT. >> EXACTLY. WE HEARD HIM COMPLAINING ABOUT IT. THANKS SO MUCH. >> THANKS. >>> NORTH KOREA RELEASING A DISTURBING NEW PROPAGANDA VIDEO. THIS ONE SHOWING A SIMULATED ATTACK ON AN AIRCRAFT CARRIER. >> THAT'S THE CARRIER FORCE HEADING TO THE KOREAN PENINSULA WHEN IT WASN'T NOT HEADING TO THE KOREAN
THEY ARE CONSIDERING PUTTING THEM TON STATE SPONSORS OF TERROR. >> SO HOW IS THIS INCREASING ISOLATED COUNTRY? WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING INTO THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN NORTH KOREA AND CHINA. SHE JOINING ME LIVE. WE KNOW NORTH KOREA MANAGED TO SURVIVE BECAUSE OF ITS RELATIONSHIP WITH CHINA. WE KNOW NORTH KOREA RELIES HEAVILY ON CHINA FOR FOOD AND FOR ITS FUEL. >> AND NORTH KOREANS WOULDN'T LIKE YOU TO SAY THAT BECAUSE IT
IS WOVEN INTO THE RHETORIC OF THIS COUNTRY THAT HELPED KEEP THE COUNTRY FIRMLY IN CONTROL. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THERE IS A LOT OF CHINESE INFLUENCES WE WITNESSED FIRSTHAND. >> NORTH KOREA SAYS IT VALUES ONE THING ABOVE ALL ELSE, SELF-RELIANCE, A CONCEPT THEY CALL -- DRIVING AROUND THE NORTH KOREAN CAPITAL IT'S CLEAR THIS INDEPENDENT NATION IS NOT ENTIRELY SELF-RELIANT. MANY EVERY DAY ITEMS ARE IMPORTED FROM CARS ON THE STREETS, ELECTRONICS IN THE STORES AND EVEN FOOD IN THE SUPER MARKETS. THESE SHELVES ARE SURPRISINGLY FULL OF IMPORTS ESPECIALLY FROM ONE PARTICULAR COUNTRY. >> IT IS INTERESTING A LOT OF CANNED FOOD ITEMS COME FROM
CHINA. IT SHOWS THERE'S A LOT OF TRADE HAPPENING DESPITE HEIGHTENED INTERNATIONAL SANCTIONS. A POWERFUL PATRON THAT PUMPS BILLIONS OF DOLLARS INTO THIS STILL LARGELY IMPOVERISHED COMMITTEE ECONOMY. INSIDE PEOPLE SAY LIFE IS GETTING BETTER. UNDER KIM JONG UN LIVING STANDARDS WITH IMPROVING. NORTH KOREAN ECONOMISTS SAY CHINA ACCOUNTS FOR 70% OF THEIR TRADE AND NOT JUST CONSUMER ITEMS. AN OIL PIPELINE IT IS ACTIONS
WON'T EFFECT THEIR WEAPONS DEVELOPMENT. WHATEVER NEW SANCTIONS WE'RE LIKELY TO FACE. WE HAVE A STRONG MILITARY WE CAN OVERCOME ANYTHING. DESPITE FIVE NUCLEAR TESTS IN THE LAST DECADE BEIJING HAS BEEN RELUCTANT. NORTH KOREA SERVES AS A BUFFER BETWEEN CHINA AND SOUTH KOREA WHERE TROOPS ARE BASED. CHINA WORRIES IT COULD TRIGGER A REFUGEE CRISIS. TEMPORARILY SUSPENDING COAL IMPORTS, A MAJOR SOURCE OF REVENUE. IN THE FIRST QUARTER OF THIS YEAR TRADE IS STILL UP NEARLY 40%.
THE TRUE TEST WILL COME IF THEY KEEP ITS PROMISE TO LAUNCH MORE MISSILES AND CONDUCT MORE NUCLEAR TESTS. THAT'S WHEN NORTH KOREA'S SELF-RELIANCE MAY TRULY BE PUT TO THE TEST. THEY SAY THEY ARE 100% BEHIND KIM JONG UN. AS WE ALL REITERATE, THIS IS WHERE POLITICAL DECENT IS NOT TOLERATED AND OPPOSING VOICES ARE NEVER PUBLICLY HEARD. >> IS IT FAIR TO SAY THAT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION'S APPROACH APART FROM WILD TWEETING AT TIMES OPTIONS ARE ON THE TABLE, STRONG CONDEMNATION.
THE NORTH IS DOING ITS THING WHEN IT COMES TO RHETORIC INCLUDING THE VIDEO WE SAW EARLIER. WAS THAT IN RESPONSE TO ANYTHIN >> WELL, YEAH, YOU COULD IT THAT WAY, THAT THI SETTLING INTO A MORE TRADITIONAL PATTERN WHERE THEY PUT OVER THE PROPAGANDA VIDEO WITH THEIR NEWEST LAND BASED BALLISTIC MISSILE BLOWING UP WASHINGTON. WE HAVE SEEN THIS KIND OF VIDEO BEFORE. THE DIFFERENCE AT THIS POINT IS LEVEL OF ENGAGEMENT AND LEVEL OF RHETORIC COMING FROM THE UNITED STATES. THE STATEMENTS DURING THE OBAMA YEARS WERE QUITE MUTED. WHEN THEY THEY WOULD MOVE ON.
NUCLEAR TESTS DIDN'T GET THAT STRONG OF A RESPONSE. FROM THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION YOU GET A LOT MORE EMOTION FROM THE PRESIDENT LIKE HE IS REALLY DIVING INTO THE ISSUE, PUSHING CHINA TO DO MORE. MAYBE THEY WERE HAPPENING DURING THE OBAMA YEARS ON THE BACK CHANNELS. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION THAT THE ERA OF STRATEGIC PATIENCE IS OVER. THEY HAVEN'T BEEN TESTED WITH A MAJOR PROEFVOCATION SUCH AS A NUCLEAR TEST. WE KNOW TENSION IS A REGULAR ALREADY SITUATION.
A NUCLEAR WAR HEAD COULD REACH THE U.S. IT IS SOONER THAN MANY PEOPLE EVER THOUGHT JUST A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. THEY HAVE MADE SUCH RAPID PROGRESS. IF THERE ISN'T SOME SORT OF AGREEMENT, SOME RESOLUTION THIS PROBLEM EVEN IF YOU PUT IT OFF FOR NOW IS ONLY DWOIKGOING TO ESCALATING. >> SOME ARE SAYING WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME. >> AND DONALD TRUMP SAYS IT WON'T HAPPEN. THAT'S HIS VIEW. >> AND WE'LL SEE HOW IT REACTS.
WILL, THANKS SO MUCH. >> THANKS. >>> TO SYRIA NOW, A CONFLICT THAT COULD BE AS COMPLICATED AS IS TRAGIC. >> YEAH. AR
MASSIVE EXPLOSION ROCKING AN AREA CLOSE TO THE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. THIS IS ON THE OUTSKIRTS. THEY SAY ISRAEL IS TO BLAME. ISRAEL WON'T CONFIRM OR DENY RESPONSIBILITY. THEY SAID THE INCIDENT FIT ISRAEL'S POLICY OF TRYING TO STOP WEAPONS BEING SHIPPED. >>> IN LONDON A TERROR SCARE. A MAN ON A MISSION OF PLANNING AN ACT OF TERRORISM.
HE WAS CARRYING KNIVES NEAR THE >>
PARLIMENT BUILDING. >> IT COMES JUST OVER A MONTH AFTER AN ATTACK THAT KILLED FOUR PEDESTRIANS AND STABBED A POLICE OFFICER TO DEATH ON THE GROUNDS OF PARLIMENT. >> THE CITY OF LONDON BARELY MISSED A BEAT AFTER THE POLICE HERE WITH WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN POSSIBLY QUITE A SECURITY INCIDENT. YOU'LL SEE THAT THIS CROSSING AT THIS PEDESTRIAN ISLAND IS A PLACE WHERE THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE GOING BACK AND FORTH THERE. AROUND 2:22 LOCAL TIME ON THIS DAY A MAN WAS ARRESTED THERE BY ARMED POLICE OFFICERS. THEY SAY THAT THIS WAS PART OF HA
IT IS UNCLEAR WHETHER OR NOT HE
HAD BEEN UNDER SURVEILLANCE FOR A WHILE. THEY SAY THAT THIS INDIVIDUAL WAS 27 YEARS OLD, THAT HE WAS ARRESTED ON SUSPICION OF AN OFFENSIVE WEAPON AND SUSPICION OF THE COMMISSION, PREPARATION AND INSTIGATION OF ACTS OF TERRORISM. THEY CLEARLY CONSIDERED THIS A TERRORISM INVESTIGATION. THEY ALSO SAY KNIVES WERE RECOVERED FROM THE SCENE. WE GOT HERE IN THE HEART OF LONDON WAS STILLCORDONNED OFF. IT WAS POSSIBLY A BACKPACK POLICE SAY AN INVESTIGATION IS UNDERWAY. CNN, LONDON.
>>> GROWING UNREST IN THE STREETS OF VENEZUELA. >> AND THE SONS OF TWO LEADERS FIND THEMSELVES ON DIFFERENT SIDES OF THE DEBATE. WE ARE LIVE NEXT. >>> AND THE ATTORNEY FOR THE MAN WHO WAS DRAGGED OFF A UNITED AIRLINES FLIGHT SAID H HAS REACHED A SETTLEM WE'LL HAVE MORE ON THAT NEXT ON CNN TO

I WAS A VICTIM OF TODAY. AT 20 YEARS OF AGE A UNIVERSITY STUDENT DIED BECAUSE OF THIS INHUMANE OF TEAR GAS AFTER HE WAS HIT IN THE CHEST. I WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS MY FATHER. DAD, YOU HAVE THE MOMENT TO PUT AN END TO THIS IBNJUSTICE. >> HE SAID I REMEMBER WHEN USED TO PLAY AND WOULD SPEND HOURS JOKING AS OUR HOURS WORKED AND I REMEMBER YOU AT PRO-CHAVEZ MARCHS. YOUR THREE MINUTES OF FAME COULD HAVE BEEN SOMETHING DIFFERENT. YOU COULD HAVE CALLED YOUR DAD AND LISTENED TO HIM.
I'LL ALWAYS BE WILLING TO TALK AND DEBATE WITH YOU. SAY HELLO TO YOUR MOM. >>> WE ARE JOINING YOU KNOW LIVE FROM SKYPE. THEY ARE NOT EXACTLY ON THE SAME SIDE EVEN THOUGH THEIR FATHERS ARE. >> YES. IT TOOK EVERYBODY HERE BY SURPRISE. HE HAS BEEN THE TARGET OF THE CAMPAIGN BECAUSE THEY SAY YOU SHOULD BE THE ONE WHO DEFENDS OUR RIGHT TO MARCH IN THE STREET AND TO DEFEND NEW ELECTIONS.
SIDELINED WITH THE GOVERNMENT AND THEN RAISED HIS VOICE ON WHAT THE OPPOSITION CALL A BRUTAL REPRESSION. OF COURSE THE REACTION WAS NOT SURPRISING IN THAT SENSE BECAUSE HE IS REALLY CLOSE TO WHAT HIS FATHER WOULD HAVE SAID. THE NEW DEVELOPMENT WAS IN PARLIMENT. HE WAS HAVING AN OPEN SESSION HERE. THEY DISCUSSED THE DEVELOPMENTS. A LOT OF PEOPLE STOOD UP AND GAVE HIM A STANDING OVATION FOR HIS ACT. >> AND WHEN HE COMES TO THE STREET WHAT IS YOUR SENSE THERE? THEY WITH STOOD PROTESTS BEFORE. IS THERE ANY INDICATION THIS HAS A DIFFERENT KIND OF MOMENTUM OF NOT? >> YES.
BECAUSE HE HAS ARRIVED A VERY VIOLENT CYCLE OF PROJECTS BACK IN 2014, FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN MORE THAN 40 PEOPLE DIED. WHAT PEOPLE ARE TELLING ME SHEER THIS TIME IS DIFFERENT BOTH ON AN INTERNATIONAL LEVEL AND ON THE STREET. THERE IS MORE VIOLENCE ON BEHALF OF THE POLICE WHO NORMALLY FIRE TEAR GAS WAY AHEAD OF MARCHS APPROACHING. WITH FRINGES OF THE OPPOSITION WHO ARE ON THE STREET TO THROW STONES, BRICKS AND EVER SORT OF OBJECTS WE CAN NOT FORGET THE
INTERNATIONAL AND DIPLOMATIC LEVEL LIKE THE DECISION TO WITHDRAW THE COUNTRY FROM THE ORGANIZATI IT IS SOMETHING THAT NEVER HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY AS THE COUNTRY HAS BEEN PART OF THE SINCE 1948. WE HAVE ALREADY ENTERED UNCHARTED TERRITORY AND TENSIONS ARE STILL RISING HERE. >> AND WHAT ABOUT THE PROTESTS? ARE WE SEEING VERY LARGE CROWDS EVERY DAY? DOES IT DEPEND ON THE DAY? SOME TIMES THEY ARE DISBURSED AND WHERE ARE THEY HAPPENING? >> THEY ARE HAPPENING -- NORMALLY THE PROTESTS, THEY
GATHER TOGETHER ON THE EAST WHICH IS AN AREA THAT IS VERY SIDELINED. THEY TRIED TO MAR MARCH TO THE OMBUDSMAN WHO WE SAW ON THE INTERNET WHO DENOUNCED THESE ACTIONS. SO FAR THE OPPOSITION NEVER MANAGED TO ENTER THESE SMALL CIRCLE BY THE NATIONAL GUARDS AND POLICE FORCES. THE NEXT TIME WILL BE ON THE FIRST OF MAY. A MASSIVE DAY. AND THE OPPOSITION HAS ALREADY VOTE THAT WILL TRY THE PARTY. >> NO END IN SIGHT. SPREESH APPRECIATE YOU. THANKS FOR THAT. >>> A DAY AGO WE WERE TELLING YOU CAN YOU THE WHITE HOUSE WAS TALKING ABOUT PULLING OUT. WAS IT A BLUFF?

SHE ALSO SAID SHE COULD CONDUCT ANOTHER DIRECT PHONE CALL WITH PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP. >> WE ARE OF COURSE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMMUNICATE DURING IMPORTANT MOMENTS AND REGARDING KEY ISSUES. WE DON'T EXCLUDE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRESIDENT TRUMP HIMSELF. IT DEPENDS ON THE SITUATION AND CONSIDERATION OF REGIONAL AFFAIRS. >> IT WAS A PHONE CALL WITH
PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP WHICH CAUSED A GREAT DEAL OF CON STIN NATION AND LEAD TO WHETHER TRUMP WOULD RECOGNIZE THE SO CALLED ONE CHINA POLICY. HE SAID THE U.S. SEES TAIWAN AS A PART OF CHINA.

IT WAS STRESSFUL FOR ME BECAUSE EVERY TIME THEY PHONE RANG I DIDN'T KNOW IF IT WAS AN NFL TEAM OR MY DUD DIBUDDIES. IT'S LIKE HANG UP TO PHONE. DO NOT CALL ME. I GOT CALL WAITING. ONLY TWO PEOPLE COULD BE ON THE LINE. I WANTED TO HAVE SOMETHING VERY SMALL. I WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH ONLY MY MOM. HER AND I HAVE BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH IN LIFE. I THOUGHT IT WAS FITTING FOR ME DO THAT. WATCHING THIS TV THE NEXT PICK UP IS THE BUFFALO BILLS, HIM HAULING AROUND, ALL OF A SUDDEN THE PHONE RINGS AND I ANSWER IT.

MY BUDDY RECORDED THE WHOLE THING, MY BEST FRIEND. >> SEEING YOUR NAME ON THAT TICKER WAS AN AMAZING FEELING. IT WAS A DREAM COME TRUE. >> I REMEMBER SITTING ON THAT
COUCH AND THIS RUSH OF EMOTIONS AND THINKING ABOUT THE SACRIFICES MY FAMILY MADE. THEY WOULD TAKE ME TO THE PARK AND THEY WOULD TAKE THE PLASTIC POTS AND FLIP THEM UPSIDE DOWN. >> WOW. >> MY MOM CUT SEAT BELTS OUT OF THE BACK OF IN OLD CAR THAT THEY HAD. SHE STRAPPED THEM TOGETHER, MADE A VETS AND TIED A ROPE AND TIRE TO IT. >> IT WAS A FAMILY. >> THEY WERE HELPING OUT TOO. WE WERE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.

EVER BE ABLE TO REPAY OUR PARENTS BACK FOR THE SACRIFICES THEY IMMEDIATEMADE FOR US. PURCHASING MY MOM A HOUSE WAS THE GREATEST FEELING EVER. I THOUGHT I WAS THE MAN THEN TO
BE ABLE TO HAVE A HOUSE, NOT WORRY ABOUT ANY MORTGAGE PAYMENT OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT AND BASICALLY TOLD MY MOM, YOU'RE PRETTY MUCH SET. NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS WITH ME AND MY CAREER THEY CAN'T TAKE YOUR HOUSE AWAY. >> THAT'S ALL I REALLY WANTED. >> YOU BOUGHT YOUR OWN HOME. >> I DIDN'T WANT ANYTHING ELSE FOR MYSELF. TA

WE BEGIN THIS HOUR WITH NEW DEVELOPMENTS FROM WASHINGTON WHERE HOUSE DEMOCRATS ANNOUNCE THE PENTAGON HAS LAUNCHED ITS OWN INVESTIGATION INTO FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER MICHAEL FLYNN. >> NOW T INTO FOREIGN PAYMENTS RECEI
BY FLYNN EVEN THOUGH NEW DOCUMENTS SHOW HE WAS WARNED AGAINST TAKING SUCH PAYMENTS BACK IN 2014. LET'S BRING IN JIM SCIUTTO RIGHT NOW STANDING BY FOR US IN NEW YORK. AND I SUPPOSE, YOU KNOW, HOW MUCH TROUBLE COULD HE BE IN. >> Reporter: ONE THING WE
LEARNED TODAY IS THE DOD IS INVESTIGATING NOT ONLY WHETHER HE BROKE ARMY REGULATIONS AS A RETIRED OFFICER BUT WHETHER HE BROKE THE LAW HERE, ONE, WITH NOT LETTING THE DIA AND OTHERS IN THE MILITARY KNOW HE WAS GIVING IN SPEECH, BUT CRUCIALLY IN ACCEPTING MONEY FROM A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT. >> ANY REGRETS ABOUT MICHAEL FLYNN? >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
>> TONIGHT, PRESIDENT TRUMP IGNORING THE QUESTION ABOUT HIS FIRED NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER MICHAEL FLYNN. AFTER NEW DOCUMENTS SHOW THAT FLYNN WAS WARNED HE WAS PROHIBITED FROM RECEIVING PAYMENTS FROM FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS. >> THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR INVITING ME AND HAVING ME HERE. >> THIS ONE YEAR BEFORE HE ACCEPTED TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FROM RUSSIAN-STATE TELEVISION FROM THIS SPEAKING ENGAGEMENT IN MOSCOW IN 2015. THE DOCUMENTS RELEASED BY THE HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE SHOWED
THAT THE DIA INFORMED FLYNN THAT HE COULD NOT RECEIVE, QUOTE, CONSULTING FEES, GIFTS, TRAVEL EXPENSES OR SALARY FROM FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS DURING HIS RETIREMENT. DESPITE THE WARNING, THE DIA TOLD COMMITTEE IN A LETTER IT COULD NOT LOCATE ANY RECORDS REFERRING TO, REFERRING TO GENERAL FLYNN'S RECEIPT OF MONEY AND THEY DID NOT LOCATE ANY MONEY FROM GENERAL FLYNN SEEKING PERMISSION OR APPROVAL FOR THE RECEIPT OF MONEY. >> WE HAVE NO EVIDENCE, ZILCH, THAT HE OBTAINED PERMISSION FROM THE SECRETARY OF THE ARMY AND THE SECRETARY OF STATE TO ACCEPT ANY FOREIGN GOVERNMENT PAYMENTS AS REQUIRED BY LAW. >> THE INSPECTOR GENERAL OF THE
DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE HAS NOW LAUNCHED AN INVESTIGATION. IN A STATEMENT TO CNN THE INSPECTOR GENERAL'S OFFICE SIES THE PROBE WILL COVER IF LIEUTENANT GENERAL FLYNN ACCEPTED PAYMENTS SITUATION I DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE REGULATIONS. >> I'M GOING TO BE REALLY PROVOCATIVE HERE TODAY FOR THIS -- FOR THIS SESSION. >> THE KREMLIN FUNDED NEWS AGENCY, RUSSIA TODAY OR RT PAID FLYNN $33,750 FOR HIS APPEARANCE IN MOSCOW IN 2015. >> MICHAEL FLYNN.
>> IN INTERVIEWS LAST YEAR, FLYNN ACKNOWLEDGED ACCEPTING PAYMENT BUT DENIED THE SOURCE WAS THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT. >> I DIDN'T TAKE ANY MONEY FROM RUSSIA, IF THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE ASKING ME. >> WELL THEN WHO PAID YOU? >> MY SPIKER'S BUREAU, ASK THEM. >> NOW REPRESENTATIVE CUMMINGS SAYS THE WHITE HOUSE IS REFUSING TO RELEASE DOCUMENTS RELATING TO THEIR PROBE. >> I HONESTLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY THE WHITE HOUSE IS COVERING UP FOR MICHAEL FLYNN. >> I DON'T GET IT. AFTER THE PRESIDENT FIRED HIM FOR LYING. >> TODAY, WHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN SHOUN SPICER BLAMED THE
BASICALLY ADMINISTRATION FOR RENEWING FLYNN'S SECURITY CLEARANCE. >> ALL OF THAT CLEARANCE WAS MADE BY THE -- DURING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND APPARENTLY WITH KNOWLEDGE OF THE T SO THAT'S HOW THE AND I WELCOME THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE'S IG'S REVIEW. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> ALSO TODAY FORMER TRUMP ADVISER CARTER PAGE WHO WAS UNDER AN FBI INVESTIGATION OF HIS TIES WITH KNOWN RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE OPERATIVES TOLD CNN'S CHRIS CUOMO, THE ALSOS VIOLATE HIS CIVIL RIGHTS. >> I'VE BEEN THE VICTIM OF ONE
OF THE MOST HORRENDOUS CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN RECENT U.S. ELECTION HISTORY. >> MICHAEL FLYNN'S LAWYER RELEASED A STATEMENT THIS AFTERNOON SAYING THAT A FULLY UNREDACTED LETTER AS MENTIONED BY THE HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE WOULD SHOW THAT FLYNN BRIEFED THE DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE AGENCY BOTH BEFORE AND AFTER THAT SPEECH IN MOSCOW, BUT THE REAL QUESTION HERE IS MORE RECENT. DID FLYNN REPORT THIS FOREIGN PAYMENT ON HIS WHAT'S KNOWN AS HIS FS 86, SECURITY CLEARANCE FORM HE'S ENTERED THE WHITE HOUSE AS THE PRESIDENT'S NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER. THAT APPEARS TO BE OPEN TO QUESTION HERE AND THAT WOULD BE >> YEAH, A POTENTIAL FELONY. THANK YOU SO MUCH. LET'S DIVE DEEPER INTO ALL OF THIS NOW WITH CNN NATIONAL SECURITY APRIL LIST AND RECEIPT TIRED CIA CHIEF OF RUSSIA OPERATIONS, STEVE HALL. THANKS FOR YOUR TIME. SO WE HEARD THERE SEAN SPICER BASICALLY DEFLECTING THE CRITICISM ABOUT THE PROPER VETTING OF MICHAEL FLYNN. A LOT OF PEOPLE WONDERING HOW IN THE WORLD HE BECAME THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER WITH ALL OF THIS SMOKE AROUND HIM. IS IT FAIR THAT THEY'RE POINTING THE FINGER AT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION? I MEAN, WHAT IS THE PROTOCOL
WHEN IT COMES TO VETTING A NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER? >> I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT THERE'S SORT OF I THINK WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF VETTING HERE. SO YOU HAVE, YOU KNOW, BASIC SECURITY PROCEDURES THAT ARE UNDERTAKEN WHEN ANYBODY IS GRANTED A SECURITY CLEARANCE IN THE U.S. GOVERNMENT, WHETHER IT'S THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE OR CIA OR ANY PLAY. AND -- ANYPLACE. THAT'S ONE KIND OF GETTING THAT HAPPENS. I THINK THE QUESTION THAT WAS ASKED OF SPICER TODAY WAS MORE OF A POLITICAL QUESTION. SO, YOU KNOW, HOW COULD A GUY THES
LIKE THIS WHO MIGHT HAVE ALL OF ALL OF THESE QUESTIO HA
SURROUNDING HIM ABOUT RUSSIA
HAVE PAST SORT OF THE POLITICAL THRESHOLD. DOES IT MAKE SENSE FOR THE ADMINISTRATION TO HAVE SAID, YEAH, DESPITE ALL OF THESE THINGS WE'RE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND HAVE HIM TO BE PART OF OUR SENIOR MOST NATIONAL SECURITY APPARATUS. SO IT'S KIND OF TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF VETTING. >> AND I SUPPOSE ALSO THE QUESTIONS OF HE WASN'T FIRED UNTIL IT WAS REVEALED HE'D HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH THE RUSSIANS, EVEN THOUGH THE WHITE HOUSE AT THE TIME KNEW HAD HE HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH THE RUSSIAN
AMBASSADOR AND THE CONTENT OF THAT. BUT WHAT I WANTED TO ASK YOU, THIS IS ABOUT WHEN IT COMES TO THESE FORMS, IT IS ABOUT INTENT, ISN'T IT? THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO SHOW THAT HE KNOWINGLY OMITTED THINGS. HOW DOES IT LOOK TO YOU? >> WELL, I THINK THERE'S -- THERE'S SO MUCH SWIRLING AROUND MICHAEL FLYNN AND SO THERE'S SO MANY DIFFERENT LEVELS, I THINK, THAT WE NEED TO LOOK AT AND SORT OF DECIDE HOW ALARMING IT IS. SO STARTING FROM THE BOTTOM UP, IT IS THE CASE THAT HE NOTIFIED SOMEBODY THAT HE WAS GOING TO RUSSIA. THEN THERE WAS A BACK AND FORTH
AS TO WHETHER OR NOT HE, YOU KNOW, COULD RECEIVE COMPENSATION FOR THAT. THE BOTTOM LINE IS ABSOLUTELY NOT, YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED DO THIS. HE THEN CONCEALED THAT. SO THAT APPEARS TO BE OF GRAVE BUT FRANKLY, WHAT REALLY CONCERNS ME, SORT OF APART FROM WHETHER OR NOT HE BROKE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE OR ARMY OR DIA REGULATIONS, WHAT REALLY CONCERNS ME IS WHETHER OR NOT THERE'S A COUNTERINTELLIGENCE ISSUE HERE. AND THAT'S WHAT THE FBI IS INVESTIGATING. WE'VE GOT A LOT OF INVESTIGATIONS GOING ON, BUT FOR ME THE CRITICAL ONE IS THE COUNTERINTELLIGENCE ONE. WAS HE COOPERATING WITH THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT DURING THE
LEAD-UP TO LAST YEAR'S U.S. TH
ELECTION. THAT'S A REALLY, REALLY SERIOUS THING THAT GOES MUCH LARGER THAN ANY PERSONAL, YOU KNOW, FINANCIAL PROBLEMS THAT MR. FLYNN MIGHT HAVE IN THE FUTURE AS HIS MONETARY DEALINGS WITH RUSSIA BECOME MORE CLEAR. >> YEAH, THAT IS WAS THERE ANY COLLABORATION BETWEEN THE RUSSIANS AND ANYONE IN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN OR TEAM. SPEAK OF ALL THESE INVESTIGATIONS THAT ARE HAPPENING, CARTER PAGE WHO WAS ANOTHER CENTRAL FIGURE IN THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATIONS, HE'S ALSO SPEAKING OUT TO CNN. THE FBI OBTAINED A WARRANT TO MONITOR HIM LAST SUMMER AFTER
CONVINCING A JUDGE THERE WAS PROBABLE CAU ACTING AS A FOREIGN MR. TRUMP NAMED PAGE AS A FOREIGN POLICY ADVISER LAST SPRING BUT THE CAMPAIGN MOVED TO DISTANCE ITSELF FROM HIM AND NOW PAGE ACKNOWLEDGING MEETING WITH RUSSIA'S AMBASSADOR DURING THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION, BUT LISTEN TO WHY HE SAYS HE WAS HESITANT TO DISCLOSE THAT WHEN SPEAKING RECENTLY WITH CNN'S ANDERSON COOPER. >> THE REASON WHY I WASN'T MORE
FORTHCOMING ABOUT THAT WITH ANDERSON ABOUT A MONTH AND A HALF AGO IS I NEVER -- IT WAS A CONFIDENTIAL MEETING. EVERYONE THAT WAS IN THAT MEETING AGREED THEY WOULD KEEP THE CONVERSATIONS CONFIDENTIAL AND I WAS RESPECTING THAT. AND SO THE REASON WHY I CAN TALK ABOUT IT NOW IS THE KREMLIN SPOKESPERSON MR. PESKOV HAS SAID THAT, YES, THERE WERE -- OR THERE WERE VARIOUS INTERACTIONS BETWEEN THE SUPPORTERS OF THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AS WELL AS THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN I WOULD MENTION. >> OKAY. SO WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THAT, STEVE? HE
YOU HAVE CARTER PAGE SAYING THAT HE WASN'T FORTH COMING AB KREMLI
ABOUT IT. >> SO HE W RUSSIAN'S PERMISSION. >> HE WAS ANGTING ON BEHALF OF THE RUSSIANS IT SOUNDED LIKE. >> SOUNDS SORT OF STRANGE, DOESN'T IT? LOOK AS SOMEBODY WHO'S DONE A LOT OF COUNTERINTELLIGENCE WORK WITH REGARD TO THE RUSSIANS THERE'S SEVERAL THEMES THAT START EMERGING NOT ONLY WITH GUYS LIKE PAGE BUT REALLY ALL OF THESE PEOPLE, REALLY, FLYNN, THEET REST OF THEM.
SO THE FIRST ONE IS, YOU KNOW, NOT BEING, YOU KNOW, OPEN WITH THINGS, TRYING TO KEEP THINGS DISCRETE OR CLAN DEFINITE CONTINUES, IF POSSIBLE. THE ACCEPTANCE OF MONEY. YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHENEVER YOU'RE WORKING WITH THE RUSSIANS AND THEY GIVE YOU MONEY, IT'S NOT A ONE-TIME TRANSACTION. IT'S DEALING WITH TONY SOPRANO AND THE MOB, THERE ARE EXPECTATIONS THAT COME WITH THAT. NOT BEING COMPLETE AND OPEN ABOUT WHAT IT IS THAT YOU'RE DOING, TRYING TO CONCEAL TRAVEL, ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE THEMES THAT GET BACK TO WHEN RUSSIA IS LOOKING AT PEOPLE FOR INTELLIGENCE PURPOSES.
AND SO ALL OF IT IS OF GREAT CONCERN AND I DON'T BUY CARTER PANL'S COMMENTS I WAS SORT OF WAITING FOR THE RUSSIANS TO TALK ABOUT IT AND I WAS KEEP A LOW PROFILE BECAUSE I WANTED TO KEEP EVERYTHING DISCRETE. THAT'S WHAT SOME WHO IS UNDER GOVERNMENT OR MAY HAVE BEEN AT SOME TIME WOULD SAY. NOT THAT I'M SAYING THAT HE WAS BUT WE'VE GOT TO HAVE MORE INVESTIGATIONS TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF ALL OF THIS. >> WE KEEP SAYING WHERE THERE'S SMOKE THERE'S FIRE AND THE ROOM SEEMS TO BE FILLING WITH SMOKE. JUST QUICKLY WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE TOTALITY, ALL THE NAMES, NOT
JUST FLYNN AND PAGE, BUT THERE'S A LONG LIST WE WANT TO GO THROUGH HERE, OF TIES SOMEWHERE WITH THE RUSSIANS, AND THERE'S A GRAPHIC THERE SHOWING SOME OF THOSE TIES, YOU WERE THE FORMER CIA MAN. IS YOUR RADAR UP? >> YEAH, ABSOLUTELY. AGAIN, THERE'S DIFFERENT THRESHOLDS. THERE'S SORT OF A LEGAL THRESHOLD, A SERIOUS ONE AND IMPORTANT ONE WHICH IS HAVE ANY OF THESE PEOPLE DONE ANYTHING ILLEGAL, COMMIT ESPIONAGE OR TAKE MONEY HAT THEY WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO. THAT'S ONE FLESH HOLD. MY MY THRESHOLD IS A COUNTERINTELLIGENCE ANALYTICAL ONE AND YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT SMOKE AND FIRE, THERE'S SIMPLY
WAY TOO MUCH SMOKE FOR THERE TO BE NO FIRE. HAD IT BEEN ANY ONE OF THESE PAGE, YOU'VE G STRANGELY OR FLYNN OR MANAFORT YOU'D SAY ANY ONE OF THOSE OKAY THAT'S A WEIRD THING. BUT THERE'S SO MANY OF THESE THINGS AND SO MUCH FROM A COUNTERINTELLIGENCE PERSPECTIVE I'M CONCERNED. >> SO MANY QUESTIONABLE FIGURES WHO HAVE BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP. STEVE HALL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> THANKS, STEVE. IT IS QUITE A WEB, ISN'T IT. >>> LET'S MOVE ON TO ANOTHER
ISSUE NOW. THIS TIME A DAY AGO WE WERE RIGHT HERE TELLING YOU THAT THE WHITE HOUSE WAS THREATENING TO PULL OUT OF THE NOERK NORTH KOREAN TRADE AGREEMENT WHEN THE U.S. PROMISED HE WOULD DO. >> WAS THE U.S. PRESIDENT PLAYING A TRILLION DOLLAR BLUFF? AFTER TALKING TO THE PRESIDENTS OF MEXICO HE SAID HE'S GOING TO RENEGOTIATE NAFTA INSTEAD. >> THEY SAY THEY'RE LIKELY TO GIVE THE 90-DAY NOTICE FOR THE TALKS NEXT WEEK. JOINING US NOW IS JASON CAROL AT THE WHITE HOUSE AND LAILA SONT EAGO GOE IN MEXICO CITY. JASON, LET'S START WITH YOU.
WHY THIS ABOUT FACE WHEN YOU FIRST HAVE TRUMP SAYING I'M GOING TO KILT NAFTA AGREEMENT, ACTUALLY, NO, LET'S THIS AGAIN AND WHAT KIND OF DEAL IS HE HOPING FOR? >> LET'S FIRST LOOK AT WHAT THIS PRESIDENT HAS BEEN SAYING FOR THE PAST YEAR. NIP THAT'S BEEN LISTENING TO HIM KNOWS THAT HE'S BEEN EXTREMELY CRITICAL OF NAFTA. HE'S MADE IT VERY CLEAR THAT HE THINKS IT'S BAD FOR THE UNITED STATES, BAD FOR U.S. WORKERS. IN FACT, JUST RECENTLY LAST WEEK IN WISCONSIN HE SAID HE'S GOING TO MAKE BIG CHANGES TO NAFTA OR, QUOTE, I'M JUST GOING TO GET RID OF IT.
THOSE ARE HIS EXACT WORDS. SO WHEN YOU -- WHEN YOU ASK IS HE BLUFFING? I THINK THERE'S A REAL ARGUMENT THAT HE'S FLEXING HIS MUSCLE HERE. HE'S LETTING HIS BASE KNOW THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HE MADE A PROMISE, HE WAS EITHER GOING TO RENEGOTIATE OR GET RID OF. .
HE WANTED TO MAKE SOME SORT OF A
STATEMENT ABOUT THAT BEFORE THE 100 DAY MARK WAS EVER. HAVING SAID THAT I DID SAY A LITTLE EARLIER TODAY THAT INITIALLY IT WAS HIS I TENT TO AT LEAST START THE PROCESS OF GETTING RID OF NAFTA WITHIN TWO TO THREE DAYS, BUT THEN AFTER SPEAKING TO HIS COUNTERPARTS IN MEXICO AND CANADA, HE WANTS TO GIVE THEM AN OPPORTUNITY TO RENEGOTIATE, IF YOU WILL, NAFTA. BUT I SHOULD ALSO POINT OUT THAT THE PRESIDENT ALSO MADE IT VERY CLEAR TODAY THAT IF HE DOESN'T LIKE WHAT HE HEARS, HE'S PERFECTLY WILLING TO BEGIN THE PROCESS AS EARLY AS NEXT WEEK OF PULLING AUGHT OF NAFTA. SO THIS IS JUST AN ATTEMPT BY THIS PRESIDENT TO LET HIS BASE KNOW THAT THIS IS A PROMISE THAT HE HAS NOT GIVEN UP ON. >> ALL RIGHT. LET'S BRING IN LEYLA SANTIAGO
NOW AND GET THE VIEW FROM SOUTH OF THE BOARD FER WE CAN. HOW DOES MEXICO VIEW ALL OF THIS? DO THEY SEE THIS AS A BIT OF A THREAT? ARE THEY TAKING IT SERIOUSLY OR THEY THINK IT'S JUST PART OF THE POKER GAME? >> I THINK MEXICAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS HAVE FELT THAT THIS IS JUST ANOTHER ELEMENT OF TRUMP'S STRAMG WHEN IT COMES TO NEGOTIATIONS.
AS A MATTER OF FACT, JUST IN THE LAST HOUR WE'VE LEARNED FROM THE FOREIGN MINISTRY DEPARTMENT THAT WHEN THEY LEARNED THROUGH THE PRESS THAT TRUMP WAS CONSIDERING PULLING OUT OF NAFTA, THE FOREIGN MINISTER CALLED HIS COUNTERPARTS IN THE WHITE HOUSE, TALKED TO FOLKS HERE, AND -- IN THE WHITE HOUSE RATHER AND SAID THIS WAS NOT A DONE DEAL. IN FACT, THIS COULD BE A WAY OF CREATING SOME URGENCY TO GET HIS U.S. TRADE REPRESENTATIVE NOMINEE CONFIRMED AND MOVE THIS ALONG.
BUT IN THE LONG RUN HERE, WHEN IT COMES TO THESE NEGOTIATIONS, THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS ALL PART OF TRUMP'S STRATEGY, THAT'S HOW THEY SEE IT. BUT HERE'S THE DEAL, TRUMP MAY BE RUNNING OUT OF TIME. YOU SEE, NEXT YEAR IS MEXICO'S PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS AND PER THE MEXICAN CONSTITUTION, THE CURRENT PRESIDENT CANNOT RUN AGAIN. SO THAT MEANS MEXICO WILL HAVE A NEW PRESIDENT NEXT YEAR AND ALL OF THE LEADING CANDIDATES AT THIS POINT ARE RUNNING ON AN ANTI-TRUMP CAMPAIGN. SO NEGOTIATIONS COULD BE MUCH
MORE DIFFICULT FOR TRUMP IF HE DECIDES TO RENEGOTIATE NAFTA NEXT YEAR. >> IT'S A REAL GAME CHANGER ON THE POLITICAL LANDSCAPE, ISN'T IT. JASON CARROLL AT THE WHITE HOUSE, THANKS SO MUCH. >>> UP NEXT ON CNN TODAY, HOW NORTH KOREA IS SURVIVING PUNISHING SANCTIONS WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM A SURVIVING FRIEND. PLUS. >> SHE WOULD SAY THAT WE INDE NUS PEOPLE WERE USED TO SLEEPING ON THE FLOOR LIKE ANIMALS. >> A HAIR ROWING TALE OF MODERN DAY SLAVERY. A WOMAN SPENT 30 YEARS AS A
SLAVE BEFORE SHE WAS FINALLY ABLE TO ESCAPE AND WE WILL HEAR HER INCREDIBLE STORY.


>>> A NEW PROPAGANDA VIDEO FROM NORTH KOREA SHOWS A SIMULATED ATTACK ON AN AIRCRAFT CARRIER BUT IT DOESN'T SPECIFICALLY REFERENCE THE "USS CARL VINSON" WHICH IS HEAD TOGETHER PENINSULA. >> THE VIDEO CAME FROM A WEBSITE THAT SAY MOUTHPIECE FOR THE NORTH KOREAN GOVERNMENT AND THE CONTENT INTENDED FOR PEOPLE LIVING OUTSIDE OF NORTH KOREA. THE TEXT IN THE FINAL SCENE OF THE VIDEO SAYS, QUOTE, IT WILL BE THE START OF THE LAST DESTRUCTION. WILL RIPLEY IS THE ONLY WESTERN JOURNALIST REPORTING HE JOINS US NOW LIVE FROM PYONGYANG. WILL. >> Reporter: HEY, MICHAEL, I'VE
ACTUALLY JUST LOST MY EARPIECE HERE BUT I'M GOING TO START OBSE
TALKING ANYWAY BUT WHAT WE THE NORTH KOREAN CAPITAL. SAY CAPITAL THAT PRIDES ITSELF ON ITS INDEPENDENCE AND YET YOU CAN'T DENY THAT THERE IS VERY STRONG INFLUENCE FROM ONE PARTICULAR COUNTRY AND THAT COUNTRY IS NORTH KOREA'S LARGEST AND MOST POWERFUL NEIGHBOR. NORTH KOREA SAYS IT VALUES ONE THING ABOVE ALL ELSE, SELF-RELIANCE, A CONCEPT THEY CALL YOU TOO CHA. DRIVING AROUND THE NORTH KOREAN CAPITAL IT'S CLEAR THIS FIERCELY INDEPENDENT NATION IS NOT ENTIRELY 1E68 RELIABILITY I
LIENT. MANY EVERYDAY ITEMS ARE IMPORTED FROM CARS ON THE STREETS, ELECTRONICS IN THE STORES, EVEN FOOD IN THE SUPERMARKETS. THESE SHELVES ARE SURPRISINGLY FULL OF IMPORTS, ESPECIALLY FROM ONE PARTICULAR COUNTRY. >> IT'S INTERESTING A LOT OF THE CANNED FOOD ITEMS YOU SEE HERE COME FROM CHINA. IT SHOWS THAT THERE'S A LOT OF TRADE HAPPENING BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES DESPITE HEIGHTENED INTERNATIONAL SANCTIONS. >> CHINA IS NORTH KOREA'S NEIGHBOR AND MOST IMPORTANT ALLY A POWERFUL PATRON THAT PUMPS BILLIONS OF DOLLARS INTO THIS STILL LARGELY IMPOVERISHED
ECONOMY. WE'RE NOT ALLOWED TO SEE LIVE OUTSIDE THE SHOWCASED CAPITAL. INSIDE PEOPLE SAY LIFE IS GETTING BETTER. UNDER KIM JONG-UN OUR LIVING STANDARDS ARE IMPROVING SAYS THIS DOCTOR. NORTH KOREAN ECONOMISTS SAY THAT CHINA STILL ACCOUNTS FOR AT LEAST 70% OF THEIR TRADE, AND NOT JUST CONSUMER ITEMS. A CHINESE OIL PIPELINE LITERALLY HELPS KEEP THIS COUNTRY'S ENGINE RUNNING. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS URGING CHINA TO USE ITS ECONOMIC LEVERAGE TO PUNISH PYONGYANG FOR PROVOCATIVE BEHAVIOR. NORTH KOREAN OFFICIALS SAY
CHINA'S ACTIONS WON'T AFFECT THEIR WEAPONS DEVELOPMENT. WHATEVER NEW SANCTIONS WE'RE LIKELY TO FACE, TRADE RESTRICTIONS WE'RE NOT AFRAID. THEY ALSO INSIST THEY'LL BE JUST FINE WITH OR WITHOUT CHINA. WE DON'T WORRY MUCH, SAYS THIS HOUSEWIFE. WE HAVE A STRONG MILITARY WE CAN OVERCOME ANYTHING. DESPITE FIVE NUCLEAR TESTS IN THE LAST DAEK KAD, BEIJING HAS BEEN RELUCTANT TO GET TOO TOUGH AND NORTH KOREA SERVES AS A BUFFER BETWEEN CHINA AND SOUTH KOREA WHERE 28,000 U.S. TROOPS ARE BASED. CHINA ALSO WORRIES A DESTABILIZED KOREAN PENINSULA
COULD CONTRIBUTORY NEGLIGENCE IRE REFUGEE CRISIS AT ITS BORDER. CHINA HAS TAKEN SOME STEPS TO SANCTION NORTH KOREA TEMPORARILY SUSPENDING COAL TRADE. THE TRUE TEST WILL COME IF PYONGYANG KEEPS ITS PROMISE TO LAUNCH MORE MISSILES AND CONDUCT MORE NUCLEAR TESTS. THAT'S WHAT NORTH KOREA'S SELF-RELIANCE MAY TRULY BE PUT TO THE TEST. AND THAT IS REALLY THE REMARKABLE THING ON THE GROUND HERE WHEN YOU TALK TO PEOPLE. THEY ACKNOWLEDGE IS THAT TRADE WITH CHINA HAS HELPED IMPROVE THEIR LIVING STANDARDS AT LEAST HERE IN THE CAPITAL CITY, THE ONLY PLACE WE'RE ALLOWED GO. AND YET THEY SAY THEY'RE NOT
FEARFUL OF CHINA CUTTING OFF THIS COUNTRY EVEN IF IT MEANT A DRASTIC DROP IN THEIR STANDARD OF LIVING. THEY SAY THEY WOULD RATHER TIGHTEN THEIR BELTS EVEN GO MUNG DEBRIS AS THEY DID IN THE YEARS OF THE GREAT FAMINE THAN HAVE THEIR COUNTRY GIVE UP ITS NUCLEAR WEAPONS BECAUSE THEIR GOVERNMENT HAS TOLD THEM THAT THOSE WEAPONS ARE THE KEY TO THEIR SURVIVAL, THEIR NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY. WE HAVE TO POINT OUT THIS AN AUTHORITARIAN REGIME AND
POLITICAL DISSENT IS NOT ALLOWED TO BE SPOKEN HERE BUT PEOPLE WILL SAY THEY DON'T HAVE FEELINGS OF DISSENT THEY ARE 100% BEHIND THEIR LEADER. >> WILL RIPLEY, THANK YOU FOR THAT. GREAT TO SEE YOU. >> GREAT TO HAVE YOU THERE AGAIN. ALL RIGHT.
WILL RIPLEY THERE. >>> WELL THIS STORY NOW, FORCED TO WORK LONG HOURS FOR NO MONEY UNDER AN ABUSIVE PERSON FOR THREE DECADES. >> IT IS THE DEFINITION OF MODERN DAY SLAVERY AND TEMPERATURE WAS LIFE FOR ONE WOMAN BEFORE SHE WAS FINALLY ABLE TO ESCAPE. WE HAVE THE STORY FROM MEXICO CITY AS PART OF CNN'S FREEDOM PROJECT. >> Reporter: LIFE'S SIMPLE FREEDOMS PROSECUTOR A WALK IN THE PARK, ICE CREAM ON A SUNNY DAY STILL SEEM FOREIGN TO THIS LADY. >> Translator: THEY TOOK AWAY MY INNOCENCE IN THE HOPE OF BEING A SELF- SE SELF-ASSURED PERSON. >> SHE SAYS SHE WAS KEPT AS A

THAT'S WHEN SHE SAYS A WOMAN ACCOMPANIED BY A TRANSLATOR APPROACH HER MOTHER HAVING THE RECENT WIDOW MONEY IN EXCHANGE FOR LOW PETA. >> Translator: THEY TOLD HER MOTHER THEY WERE GOING TO TAKE HER DAUGHTER WITH THEM AND SEND TO TO SCHOOL AND THEY WERE GOING

SUPPOSED TO DO. I UNDERSTAND THIS IS NOT EASY, BUT IT'S THE RIGHT THING TO DO. >> MEANWHILE, THE PRESIDENT'S QUOT
SON HAD THIS TO SAY IN RESPONSE. TO PLAY AND WOULD SPEND HOURS JOKING AS OUR FATHERS WORKED IF THE YOUR THREE MINUTES OF FAME COULD HAVE BEEN SOMETHING DIFFERENT. COULD YOU HAVE CALLED YOUR DAD AND LISTENED TO HIM. LET'S GET A FIRST-HAND ACCOUNT OF THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS. I MEAN, IT'S ALMOST A MICRO COX, ISN'T IT, OF WHAT WE'RE SEEING ON THE STREETS. WHAT'S BEING MADE THERE OF THESE TWO SONS HAVING A PUBLIC DISAGREEMENT? >> Reporter: YES, TODAY HAS
BEEN, AS YOU SAID, A DAY OF REACTIONS, FIRST TO THE LOSS OF THE MAN THAT DIED YID HERE IN CORE RACK CUSS AND THEN THE SON OF THE PRESIDENT. OF COURSE YOUR POSITION HAS BEEN QUICK TO HAIL THE ROLE OF THE SON IN THE VIDEO IN WHICH THE SON DIRECTLY ASKED TO HIS FATHER TO STOP THE VIOLENCE AND HAS CALLED THIS A TRIUMPH FOR POSITION WHILE THEY HAVE BEEN SIMILARLY QUICK TO CALL HIM JUST A SLAVE OF THE -- OF THE PROPAGANDA THE FOREIGN AND FAR-RIGHT PROPAGANDA HERE IN VENEZUELA.
