twitter he called trump's announcement a desperate attempt to undermine a solid multilateral agreement was aimed as larvae spoke to people on the streets of tehran to get their view. nearly two and a half years after the nuclear deal was signed many iranians say they haven't seen any real benefits and that president hassan rouhani promised more than he could deliver his own but has said that the stuff they did you could have the need to deal had no impact at all in my life the price of rice is doubles sixpences to millions in rent meanwhile the children of official people don't exist money to my pocket or to the woman selling things on the street which people but some are still willing to stand by their president communism and television news when it is doing his best of course there are some problems in the country sanctions pressure from abroad naturally impacts livelihoods and the economic situation but if we just
6:05 am
blame the president and say he is the one who has to do something of course he cannot we should stand next to him cooperate with him and tolerate the situation the nuclear deal had some success the lifting of sanctions let iran so oil again freely on the international market exports are up to more than two million barrels a day but gains have been overshadowed by u.s. president donald trump's aggressive stance towards iran every few months the iranian nuclear deal was thrown into chaos and managing that political turmoil takes up so much of the iranian government's time that there isn't a lot of room left for public discourse about much else trump has created so much uncertainty about the nuclear deal that iranians say it's been as harmful as sanctions that the deal was meant to lift many people are frustrated that foreign investors are too scared to come to iran and the value of their currency keeps falling. trump is a person who has a psychological problem his opinions have no balance on any issue is always
6:06 am
changing his mind and for me as an iranian and for most iranians it doesn't matter if the us pulls out of the deal as long as european countries cooperate with us we will stay in the deal oh oh. oh summer audience don't care about the nuclear deal and say they simply want to get on with their lives about the money they've had to live on the shore i just want to make people happy that's said and i don't care about anything else making people happy is a kind of arts and i'm not interested in these kinds of nuclear conversations oh oh oh oh iran's government says it's ready to deal with at least so to its or its people. the us president has denied using the word shithole to describe haiti el salvador and countries in africa but a democratic senator who was in the meeting we're trying to legibly made the comment says that's not true of a white house correspondent and can really help it has more on
6:07 am
a controversy that has spread far beyond the american capitol. surrounded by members of the african-american community at a white house ceremony honoring the civil rights icon dr martin luther king donald trump made no apology for his alleged racist comments a day earlier. writing a series of early morning tweets donald trump denied media reports that he had called haiti el salvador and african countries shitholes during a meeting with senators on immigration but he did admit the language used was tough he also denied saying anything derogatory about haitians other than haiti is obviously a very poor and troubled country. we're here today standing beside the president in the oval office with dr martin luther king jr's nephew later he told al-jazeera he believes trump has much to learn about tolerance but is not hateful i honestly
6:08 am
don't think the president trump is a racist i think he's racially uninformed we've got time to do. democratic senator dick durbin was at thursday's white house meeting and says trump made the controversy or comments words he calls vile and racist should be set forth with which and he said there were people. traps comments have stunned many in the country including the tens of thousands of haitians who came to the united states after the devastating twenty ten earthquake it was kind of disturbing you know it was hurtful to my community my current members of the president's own republican party have distanced themselves from trump's comments calling them problematic as politicians try to come to an agreement on immigration and funding to avoid an imminent government shutdown i read those comments later last night so first thing
6:09 am
that came to my mind was very unfortunate unhelpful it is incomprehensible that these words came out of the mouth of the president of the united states of america a country that was founded on. being free from discrimination the calls for the president to apologize for his remarks are intensifying inside and outside the united states but for now it appears that apology is unlikely kimberly helped at al jazeera washington when a short time ago african invested as for the united nations issued a joint statement condemning trump's remarks the african group of a to the united nations met in emergency session on twelve. twenty eighteen to consider the remarks made by the president of the united states and.
6:10 am
is extremely appalled at and strongly condemns the outrageous racist and xenophobic remarks attributed to the president of the united states of america as widely reported in the media demands a retraction and apology. culhane has more on the international reaction to trump's comments. he once said when he was in the oval office america would be respected around the globe that isn't happening just the opposite actually according to polls and that will be even worse now that he has called africa el salvador and haiti shitholes reaction from the united nations was quick these shocking and shameful comments from the president of the united states i'm sorry but there's no other work on can use but racist. you cannot dismiss entire countries and continents as
6:11 am
shitholes whose entire populations who are not white. not welcomed the president's muddled denials not believed by most considering he so often gets caught say blatant lies this remark is being taken personally in haiti marking the eighth anniversary of a deadly earthquake you know you've got a value we all have to get together and respond to trying to say as many years since haiti has been a shithole country now we are in emerging countries we can do things we want our independence in the past in kenya unfortunately the american people elected an individual who's been accused of multiple counts of sexual assault is a proven liar and clearly a racist i don't want to leave my country i love my country it's a beautiful country with beautiful people south africa well what i feel about what donald trump is that right now with the statement that with i've never met god never have made the mistake that people would cite and zimbabwe is now proves
6:12 am
everything that he's a white supremacist by now when you come up with outright racist comments i think i just learned to. various nations of the woods yet i learned from the american people themselves around the globe condemnation disgust even now after so much a sense of shock this is the president of the united states who many now see as an unapologetic races. how did al-jazeera washington. james know which one is a republican strategist and trump's a porsche and he says the president's remarks of exposing divisions within the party well i would agree i think the republican party is in big trouble in the republican party is in many ways in the middle of a civil war i think there is multiple parts of the republican party right now and many that don't support you know president many that didn't support more for very good reason and i think the reason that doug jones was elected is because
6:13 am
a lot of republicans did vote for him and give him money and supported in many different ways and and that's a good thing so you know i think all of these terrible bigotry and things that are being said need to be you know washed away and and the republican party needs to quickly as fast as they can and move on from these these types of ideas and things they're thinking so it's very troubling and you know it needs to be dealt with but that's been some of the challenges you know all the way along here again whether it's some sort of tweet we had a tweet two days ago about pfizer legislation that's important here in the u.s. where the president seemed to oppose what was happening on the hill and that came to a surprise to a lot of people and then you know comments like he made that you know apparently last night in the oval office obviously you're going to set back immigration reform efforts on capitol hill which it seemed like they were going to move forward on on tuesday and now are they you know puts it all in jeopardy so absolutely these things are are very troubling and you know cause a lot of issues and you know democrats seem to be picking up
6:14 am
a lot of steam frankly in there could be a big wave for democrats you know come this november here in our midterm elections and so i think that that's you know part of the issue in if you look back part of the reason that trump was elected was because of his message of dysfunction in washington and now that he's been here you know a year he seems to be also part of the dysfunction in washington and those comments are are part of that and so i think that's you know a big challenge. a new u.n. report on the war in yemen shows the extent to worked saudi arabia and iran have intervened in the conflict the report bolsters accusations by the u.s. that iranian weapons have been supplied to what the rebels u.n. experts are also critical of some of the lead coalition airstrikes which have caused the majority of civilian deaths and diplomatic editor james bays has more from the u.n. . this is a report to the u.n. security council has not been made public it's only been given to the fifteen members of the security council but i've been allowed to read
6:15 am
a copy and it's very hard hitting and very critical of all of the parties in the war in yemen it questions whether yemen can continue to be one country it says in the south because of the length of the war in the divisions that have emerged there is the real possibility of secession into a separate south yemen it says in the south of the country people displaying the flag of the old country of south yemen and are not loyal to president had he although they're formally under his command it says that president heidi has no longer effective command and control of the military and security forces in the south of yemen it says one of the reasons that there is this lack of stability in yemen is actually the forces that have been built up by the saudi led coalition it says that there are proxy units that they have drawn up but it says that these units will do more to further the fragility of yemen then they will do to hold the
6:16 am
state together it says they pose a threat to peace and stability in yemen it is also very critical of the coalition for civilian casualties in yemen it says that it appears that the saudi led coalition has not been following international humanitarian law and it says it's likely that some of those who are responsible for planning and executing airstrikes fall under the designation of the security council as people who should be subject to sanctions again the another damning part of the report is about the u.n. a part of the coalition in the camps there running inside yemen it says that there has been torture in these camps it talks about beatings electrocution constrain suspension the use of what it. pools the cage which is confinement in a cage in the sunlight and the denial of medical treatment it says working with the government of yemen gives the u.a.e.
6:17 am
plausible deniability so it is a possibility are now now given this report by the panel of experts that the security council must consider whether there should be sanctions against members of the coalition and also sanctions against iran because the who these sides are also criticized it says that there have been military remnants of military equipment and drones that are of iranian origin and were introduced in yemen after the security council adopted an arms embargo still ahead on the bulletin after months of uncertainty a breakthrough in talk to form a new coalition government in germany and the latest take on the annual consumer electronics show we have a poll from las vegas. how
