and a u.s. president donald trump has once again slammed the iran nuclear deal this time calling it insane and terrible he says it should never have been made his comments come on the second day of his french counterpart in one year in michael's state visit to washington d.c. the two men have been holding talks in the oval office with a nuclear deal top of the agenda back home back to the agreement and he's hoping to change trump's mind on it. can be how could his at the white house for us are some pretty strong language from trump over iran deal once again in spite of all wolf do you think though the state also over this issue. it appears so least for now it appears that the french president has his work cut out for him in trying to convince donald trump to remain and to keep the united states within that agreement given some of the statements that were made the oval office in just the last couple of hours donald trump essentially doubling down on his positions about why this is
7:03 pm
a bad deal as we often heard him say on the campaign trail and then going even further as he often does criticizing the obama administration for putting it in place and discussing some of the concerns he has with it saying that he believes that there are not enough had been addressed when that was negotiated to sort of rectify what he believes are ron's destabilizing behaviors within the broader middle east saying what kind of a deal is this that allows iran to test missiles but then he went even further threatening iran if it continues with activity the united states doesn't like take a listen won't be so easy for them to restart they're not going to be restarting anything they restart it they're going to big problems bigger than they've ever had before and you can mark it down they restart the nuclear program they will have bigger problems and they have ever had before thank you very much everybody. very incomplete as a whole with trying this is one thing one minute and something slightly different
7:04 pm
to a different effect later on you also seem to be saying we could at least have an agreement among ourselves very quickly quickly i think we fairly close to understanding each other so what could that be a pivotal to. what it seems to be opening the door to and you're right that is very much a donald chart donald trump trademark this sort of strong negotiating position out of the gate and then dialing things back later on and certainly the two leaders indicated that well they've had very substantial talks there is still more to be discussed in the coming weeks and months in terms of follow up telephone calls but certainly you know we have an upcoming press conference joint press conference that is set to take place between the two leaders in the next half hour or so but i can tell you already so many issues have been discussed because following that oval office meeting there was also a joint appearance of the two men in the cabinet room where they were flanked by the vice president u.s. vice president cabinet secretaries where they discussed another key issue that
7:05 pm
they've been discussing between them and that is the north korean leader kim jong un in the upcoming summit between the u.s. president and kim jong un and donald trump saying some rather odd statements including that he felt that kim jong un had been open and honorable as they discussed their upcoming meeting and sort of underscoring he believes that the u.s. strategy of maximum pressure is working and then one other key ideological difference between the french and u.s. leaders seem to emerge and that is the issue of climate change of course the united states pulling out of the paris climate accord manual macross saying that he is going to continue to urge donald trump to confront what he calls the world's and the united states and france as challenges particularly when it comes to climate so again we talk north korea we talk to iran we talk climate change i don't know what's left in this joint press conference but certainly i'm sure these men will find something can be how to thank you very much indeed we'll bring it out to a news conference as soon as that stocks. has been gauging reaction in paris what
7:06 pm
do they make of all the way you are. well i think most people in france will be watching the pictures that we've been seeing here on our television screens of the two presidential couples of the two presidents the pomp and the ceremony the tree colors across washington and i think a lot of people in france will be quite pleased to see from being put back on the international map there was a sense here that perhaps france was sliding off that international map you want to put it that way over the past few years and done a lot to bolster the position of france internationally sensi became present a year ago but there's no doubt donald trump is for most french people quite an unpopular u.s. president in their eyes that's the least what opinion polls here suggest they really don't like him that much and they sort of look at donald trump and think that he's the antithesis of water president should be you know with his television
7:07 pm
reality past and he was formally you know a tycoon a real estate tycoon so they find it quite difficult to relate to him so that means they're very curious and sometimes baffled by this so-called friendship between him and or mark or and donald trump and there are those who worry that this friendship could perhaps end up tarnishing france in some way they worried that mantle marco should not get too close to the trumpet ministration but there are others who simply see this as quite pragmatic this is politics a man omar calls the president of france he is as he pointed out in his recent fox news interview simply talking to the president of the united states the man that was elected france needs to talk to the u.s. that is what amount of michael says because it's important to have allies rather than enemies and him at all mark or in that way is really trying to use his position to perhaps influence trump sometimes at least have his ear but at least make sure that donald trump perhaps doesn't get in his way internationally and in
7:08 pm
that way that is why is no cheering this relationship which can seem quite unusual from the outside thank you very much indeed. three suicide bombers have attacked the pakistani city of quarter killing at least six police officers one bomber detonated his explosives near a police truck on the road towards the airport where two others attacked a paramilitary checkpoint on the city's outskirts fifteen police and soldiers were wounded in the attacks no one has so far claimed responsibility and egyptian court has sentenced the country's former anticorruption chief to five years in prison or charges of spreading false news if i'm going in i was arrested in february for accusing presidential candidate sami halfassed a nun of having documents that incriminated the state's leaders and in

7:10 pm
breach scandal first of all speaking to a parliamentary committee dr alexander kogan he's the man who produced the app that was used to harvest the data of some eighty seven million facebook users and then illegibly pass it on to cambridge analytical for use in influencing the donald trump campaign and following that swiftly it was a press conference given by cambridge analytical defending or dealing with what it described as ill informed and inaccurate speculation about the company well alexander kogan insists as he has done before that he did nothing wrong back in two thousand and fourteen both sides he said knew precisely what was going on what he was doing no one raised any objections then he says he's being made a scapegoat by facebook that describes him as a liar and a fraud his product as a scam and cambridge analytical that says the data he produced was in effect will take a listen to this exchange from the briefing in which the committee suggests that his motivation may in the end have been commercial game essentially the payments on
7:11 pm
the profitable thirty thousand for your role in this was to keep the data exactly much you could then use who in your academic life or perhaps that was part of the deal only there was the deal i was rewarded with data ok you say residents that you got some. university ethics approvals for all your academic work. did you have university approval for for that deal for the commercial it's not yours so there's not a mechanism for a company to go out and seek its approval for a commercial deal and the university all over so because of rather than a disability this side of the. rubble after that as i said there was a press conference given by a spokesman clarence mitchell for cambridge analytical in which he stressed that none of dr kogan zz data had been used in any political campaign he said that cambridge analytical had only a brief five month tenure with the donald trump campaign he said it had never
7:12 pm
worked for either side in the breaks it campaign take a listen. the company has been portrayed in some quarters as almost some bond villain cambridge analytical is no bond villain whilst no laws were broken we have acknowledged where mistakes have been made and a full independent verse to goshen being conducted by a q.c. is being conducted as we speak well mr mitchell described cambridge analytic as a fantastic world leading data science company he said the media outlets leading the coverage against it were doing so because of a political agenda. protests are continuing in nicaragua with demonstrations now calling for the resignation of president daniel ortega human rights groups say at least twenty six people have been killed in a violent crackdown by police on the protests which began last week town hall
