8:02 pm
central london. on a tour of the middle east forging a post breck's it role for britain in the world this is not what the prime minister wanted to be talking about the fact that we work together does not mean that we're afraid to say oh when we think united states have got it wrong and to be very clear with them and i'm very clear that retreating from britain first was the wrong thing to do. back home in london the government argues that britain's ties with america military cultural diplomatic of what make the special relationship and this will endure long after the current president has gone the prime minister will always have run regular calls with the president and she has been explicit in criticizing this tweet and i know that she will always make sure that she calls it out where she sees it and that's what she's done here. but
8:03 pm
a tweet from another minister who is a muslim made it clear the president had hit a raw nerve. donald trump has upset a lot of people here in westminster in fearing he's still invited to london on a state visit that would involve the queen in practice it's very hard to see that visit happening any time soon the president has provided a huge probably steve bruce to a fringe far right movement britain first which has never come close to success in any form of election here in the u.k. . britain first wants to end immigration and ban is lime in the u.k. anti fascist groups believe it has about one thousand members. its deputy leader to france and whose tweets were retreated by the president is facing charges of using threatening and abusive language she's thanked the president for retreating her messages to his more than forty three million followers saying god bless you
8:04 pm
trump god bless america barnaby phillips al-jazeera westminster. the american perspective to it was outside the white house. do the white house recognize the kind of rao that is. i think there is a recognition but also a resignation that there's very little that aids can do to kind of tame the president's presence on social media particularly when it comes to twitter so there's been a vigorous defense not just from the press secretary but also the deputy press secretary raj shah who has told reporters that the president will continue to highlight what he believes is a legitimate national security issue and that's why we saw the late wednesday tweet from the president where he directed it at teresa mayes saying the focus should not be on me but instead on what he believes is the threat inside the united kingdom but here's the problem for the president while he is trying to along with his staff
8:05 pm
pivot this towards policy and certainly terms of talk about tougher border security and so on the president if he's looking to talk about policy is really doing himself a disservice given the fact that policy is exactly what most reporters were focused on until he said those three tweets in fact he was poised to get a lot of almost positive press given the fact that it looks like the senate will be passing a comprehensive tax reform plan and potentially giving the president his first a much needed legislative victory so that typically would have been the headline right now but because of the president's own actions in fact it's just the opposite and give me if i can from just slightly find where you said there are rumors coming out of the trump he's about to replace the secretary of state rex tillerson which i suppose isn't a huge surprise if indeed it's true. all right not a huge surprise but it's this nagging and persistent rumor that just won't go away
8:06 pm
for the white house this is problematic because you want to have this presence of stability within the administration but it's been just the opposite when it comes to the secretary of state rex tillerson it's long been rumored as you point out that there have been strained relations between the president and his top diplomat it's been on the issues of north korea on the iran deal and then of course you remember a few months ago there was that very hastily assembled news conference by the secretary of state following reports that he had called the president in a private meeting a moron well he did say in that press conference that he had a very good relationship with the president he never denied the name calling so it appears that the maybe this relationship has run its course because now we are having this being floated out in the media this proposal that in fact the secretary of state is imminently being replaced by the current head of the cia mike pump a zero when asked about this in the oval office in just the last hour or so the president saying very little being kind of big leaving some question and doubt
8:07 pm
saying that when it comes to whether or not he wants rectal rex tillerson to stay he says he's here rex is here it's hard to know what that means but certainly these rumors growing ever louder and the expectation being that the secretary of state could be replaced imminently great to hear your thoughts come to help with the latest on twitter gate. russia has accused the united states of doing everything it can to provoke north korea and insists cutting diplomatic and trying is not they are on wednesday the u.s. war on pyongyang but it will be utterly destroyed if war breaks out tensions are running high after north korea's latest intercontinental ballistic missile launch which it claims could reach the u.s. mainland we've just heard the president trump has spoken to the south korean leader to discuss ways of responding to this latest launch reports from seoul.
