6:34 am
given her first television interview more than three weeks after the saudi journalist murder in istanbul. in just was critical of how the u.s. has handled the case she has rejected an invitation from president onil trump to visit the white house istanbul's prosecutor has demanded the extradition of eight hundred s. spec's from saudi arabia for the killing of her salto also mounting on riyadh to reveal the location of the chauffeur his body or his president calls saudi explanation so far comical and childish and a supporter of donald trump has been arrested on suspicion of sending at least thirteen pipe bombs to high profile critics of the u.s. president if he stays are say aqua's take it in the custody in florida earlier on friday morning all those parcel bombs in the u.s. joining us is michael fauntroy he's acting director of the ronald walters leadership and public policy center at howard university joins us from washington d.c. thank you so much for your time so a bit ago
6:35 am
a reporter asked president trump if he would tone down his rhetoric and he specifically said no and also said he could tone it up if you wanted to is that a tacit admission a tacit acknowledgement that his rhetoric actually does have an effect on on his supporters whether he acknowledges it or not. i think that's as close as we're going to get to an admission from him the president has been very adroit in his inability to accept responsibility for his words the president has stated speaks and those words are carried all over the world and have great impact and certainly among his supporters here in the united states many of them are very fervent believers or what he has to say and he does not yet understand or more specifically acknowledge that those words do in fact move people into certain directions and what we see unfolding in florida is a prime example of that what do you make of one of his tweets he
6:36 am
referenced the bomb stuff and put the word bomb in quotations what kind of message does that send well let me let me say first almost immediately after this story broke there were you know far right hyper conservative republicans in american politics in the public discourse who were saying that they thought this was a fake and they didn't see it as legitimate so i think the president may have been sort of reflecting some of what he already heard that regard and he certainly wants to believe that it's not true because again if he if it turns out that it is true and even today have a difficult time. expressing that this person was a supporter of his i think it shows that the president is unable and unwilling to accept what is true and doesn't want to believe it and will cast any message he can
6:37 am
to try to deflect attention from him so and to be clear the department of justice specifically said today that this was not a hoax that this was real so we're just a few days out from the midterm elections how do you anticipate the democrats responding and how do you see this affecting. the campaigning and the election cycle when i think the importance of this can be seen in how quickly republican leaders around the country rush to microphones to condemn what was going on because they understood that this has the potential to solidify. candidate voters who had not yet sort of settled on who they were going to vote this is not the kind of thing that cuts well for republicans we won't begin to see for sure until later in the weekend perhaps early next week how all of the dust settles on this but in purely political terms and i understand this is much larger than just
6:38 am
politics but in purely political terms the republicans have a real problem with the idea that one of their own who is a fervent supporter of the president is literally engaging in domestic terrorism and threatening important americans all over the country why is it so difficult. for the republicans to separate themselves from this man to fight it doesn't seem that hard it's not a hard choice to say you know we don't support what why are they walking trying to walk this line well i think you have to be careful i think they have to be somewhat careful here because they they have voters who are equally angry and hostile toward the clintons and the obama's and and george soros and joe biden and all the others who've been targeted here so they can't go all then. as you might expect that they should because they don't want to offend some of their own supporters and therein
6:39 am
lies the real political box that some of them will find themselves further you know present trouble has not gone all in in terms of criticizing this and they don't want to run the president. i thank you so much for joining us from washington d.c. thank you my pleasure. the united nations says syria's blocking efforts to draft a new constitution that is key to ending the country's civil war but the outgoing un syria envoy stuff and then mr a has expressed hope that high level meetings in the coming weeks will lead to some sort of solution or diplomatic editor james reports. on a video link to the security council from beirut the man who's making one last push at the end of his four year mission for peace in syria special envoy stefan de mistura his efforts for most of this year have been narrowed to focus on getting a committee together to draw up a new constitution for syria mr de mistura travel to damascus in recent days
6:40 am
because the syrian government has been repeatedly objecting to names on the list for the committee but when he met syrian deputy prime minister walid muallem things went backwards even further with the syrians now even questioning mr de mistura as of thirty to draw up the list we do have a theater challenge that. it is like danger to nowhere for your growth challenge for the coming week that caused from some council members directed not just to the syrian government but also to its russian ally and even russia has given the un and this council assurances it has proved too weak to deliver or it was all the cynical smic screen designed to dying ferret attention and energy while russia syria and iran prosecuted the military campaign western nations are
6:41 am
hoping that the istanbul summit pressure can be put on president putin to force the syrian government to reengage with the united nations they want the constitutional committee to be formed before mr de mistura finishes in his job at the end of november james zira at the united nations the u.k. based charity oxfam has again called on the u.s. u.k. and other governments to stop supplying arms to saudi arabia which is leading a coalition against him and the rebels oxfam says one civilian has died every three hours since august or than five hundred to many were killed. in fighting between the saudi led coalition and the rebels between august first and october fifteenth and he blamed the war for a cholera epidemic which has killed two thousand people in the past eighteen months and yemen's economy it's in tatters spiraling inflation has halved and calms and nearly double the cost of feeding a family or more. doctors have told needs to buy

million people risk slipping into preform in conditions by the end of the year if the conflict continues but it's my. former u.s. president barack obama has told voters to be aware of efforts to exploit america's racially divisive past obama speaking at a democratic rally in wisconsin in the run up to november as midterm elections urged people to vote and said they should ignore some politicians anti immigrant rhetoric i did a castro has more from milwaukee. the former president made no mention of the attempted bomb attacks which was a notable choice given that obama himself is among the list of prominent democrats who were the intended recipients of one of those packages obama however did talk about the politically charged and divisive atmosphere leading up to the u.s. midterm elections saying that this is a dangerous time in which civility needs to make a return i've got to believe that there are certain things that transcend party
6:45 am
and that whatever your political background i'm hoping you think it's wrong to hear people spend years months vilifying people questioning their patriotism calling them enemies of the people and then suddenly you're concerned about civility. please. and by the way we don't need more mealy mouth elected officials who claim they're disappointed by this bad behavior but then don't do anything about the just go along with the if. we do the leaders will actually stand up for what's right for growth what's the purpose in the former president obama remains the democrats' biggest gun leading up to these elections he was here for the primary reason to campaign for the democratic candidates for the u.s. senate and for the governor's mansion in wisconsin both of those candidates are
6:46 am
actually already leading in polls here but obama also took the opportunity to draw stark contrast between himself and donald trump telling voters that this was the time to take action and that these elections are the most important of their lifetimes it will be interesting to see how president donald trump responds to this later on this evening when he has a rally of his own. results to presidential candidates are wrapping up their campaigns before the runoff vote on sunday presidential candidate terrible sonora has seen his commanding lead over rival fernando all six percentage points in the past week fading hopes of a stunning turnaround for the leftist candidate a summer's been accused of making sexist racist and homophobic remarks teresa has more from rio de janeiro. we're hearing below the event held by the workers' party on the how about the workers' party presidential candidate is currently in northeastern brazil trying to gather as many votes as can that the stronghold of
