6:02 am
a steadfast part of saudi arabia she has more from washington d.c. . here by. our white house thanksgiving tradition of the president of turkey to go to groom significance this year a short time donald trump that made it clear he was giving the saudi crown prince a pass in the killing of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi in a paragraph statement filled with the rhetorical flourishes the exclamation marks on slogans characteristic of the president's tweets doldrums. made his argument king solomon and crown prince mohammed bin salman vigorously deny any knowledge of the planning and execution of the murder of mr khashoggi our intelligence agencies continue to assess all information but it could very well be that the crown prince had knowledge of this tragic events maybe he did and maybe he didn't our relationship is with the kingdom of saudi arabia donald trump went on they have been a great ally in our very important fight against iran the united states intends to
6:03 am
remain a steadfast partner of saudi arabia to ensure the interests of our country israel and all other partners in the region very simply it is called america first basically he was saying that our relationship has saudi arabia sold porn really doesn't matter later in the day mr trump was asked about his staunch support for the saudis we're not going to give up hundreds of billions of dollars in orders and let russia china and everybody else have a it's all about for me very simple it's america first after talks with my pump aoe in washington the turkish foreign minister also discussed the complexity of his nation's relations with saudi arabia making it clear that i'm greg did not want to sabotage those links but he added this we know well that the team who came to stumble did not come because they wanted to but they came at the request of somebody we know though that this person is not the king there was a withering response from the washington post who wrote for and journalists rights groups president trump is correct in saying the world is
6:04 am
a very dangerous place the washington post said in a statement his surrender to the state ordered murder will only make it more so an innocent man brutally slain deserves better as does the cause of truth justice and human rights in this failure of leadership from president trump it now falls to congress to stand up for america's true values and lasting interests the committee to protect journalists tweeted this if you boil the white house statement down to its essence president trump has just asserted that if you do enough business with the us you are free to murder journalists that's an appalling mess. to send to saudi arabia or the world but it seems the trouble ministration has made a decision not to be concerned by the ridicule and disbelief that is greeted its arguments and ultimate position on the killing she abrahams the old zero washington now reaction to trans comments was quick and scathing zot former cia director john brennan tweeted since mr trump excels in dishonesty it's now up to members of
6:05 am
congress to obtain and declassify the cia findings on kushal g.'s death no one in saudi arabia most especially the crown prince should escape accountability for such a heinous act the former us ambassador to the u.n. condemned trump and pompous response over twitter saying it is a mean and nasty world to trump siding with the meanest and nasty ist out there the third thing c.c. prove ten or assassin m.b.'s will leave the world even nastier the statement is a green light for would be murderers and countries that have things that trump things we need let's go now to our correspondent mike hanna he's joining us live from washington d.c. and republicans and democrats united in their opposition to trump statement mike indeed yes it's an absolutely bipartisan reaction an absolute anger among members of congress they are adamant that they will seek legislation in the senate and in the house to impose sanctions in saudi arabia and are adamant to that they want the
6:06 am
investigation into the murder of shogi continued president trump appeared to wave it away its implication was that the investigation it ended with the statement but members of congress are absolutely adamant they will not let it go they are going to push for further action to be taken. and what would they like better action to be mike as well as the sort of sanctions that we've heard spoken about we also heard that they want the cia to declassify this document and make the findings public how likely is that. well once again that is something that's a bit more difficult the cia can only do so under the instructions of the president too it would appear as no intention of making any cia findings of the at all but what congress can do is introduce legislation now we're hearing that they will do
6:07 am
so as soon as next week there was a bill in the senate that had been introduced which provides for sanctions in saudi arabia with regard to its war in yemen now the senators have said they are going to push ahead with that bill next week even that though it is a lame duck session the new members of congress have not taken their seats yet so that is on the one element on the other element what has happened way back in november the senate foreign relations committee sent president trump a letter demanding that he investigate the murder and that he imposed sanctions in terms of what is called the global magnitsky act which provides for accountability for human rights abuses now the same committee the states and the president yet another letter reminding him that this investigation is still ongoing and getting very specific to saying it once seemed to include in its is investigation to find out who killed jamal khashoggi was it the crown prince hama been summoned so
6:08 am
congress a using every measure that it can to put pressure to bear on president trump and we're very likely to see legislation introduced republican senator lindsey graham making quite clear that there is so much bipartisan support within the senate to get further details about the death of jamal khashoggi that it's certainly something that is going to happen and it could happen very soon mike thank you very much for that for now that is mike hanna live in washington d.c. thank you. now in his defense of the u.s. saw the relationship donald trump statement on the included some barbs aimed at iran he opened the statement he was impaled on a sample to show how quote dangerous the world is well immediately afterwards iran's foreign minister mohamad java serif replied in a tweet saying mr trump bizarrely devotes the first paragraph of his shameful statement on saudi atrocities to accuse iran of every sort of malfeasance he can think of perhaps what also responsible for the california fires because we didn't
6:09 am
help break the forests just like the finns did. or tribes comments on iran coincided on tuesday with new sanctions against russian and iranian companies the us state department says they're shipping millions of barrels of oil to syria in violation of u.s. sanctions it also accuses iran and russia of using the revenues to help fund the syrian government allies which the u.s. considers terrorist groups secretary of state says the transactions undermine the judgment efforts to resolve the war in syria the united states today sanctioned international network that the iranian regime and russia are using to provide millions of barrels of oil to the assad regime this is in exchange for a little bit of hundreds of millions of dollars to the i r g c could force that money is then passed on to terrorist organizations like hezbollah and hamas the united states in its continued efforts will not allow these dirty dealings to flourish well let's get more on this now trita parsi from the national iranian
6:10 am
american council his life arise from rest of the journey a very good to have you with us on al-jazeera as it's been pointed out a statement which is supposed to be about a murder the journalist somehow ends up being much more about iran iran is mentioned more times than jamal khashoggi what do you make of this. well it shows the desperation and which trumpet ministration is trying to deflect and wanted in the next issue and essentially trying to scare the american public into thinking that the iran is such a major threat to the not as states so that the united states has no choice but to keep business as usual with the saudi government despite the murder of jamal khashoggi it shows that this obsession with iran has now reached a mud hole and the u.s. government on the tropics always existed but has not reached a level that is beyond anything we've seen in the past but is it working with the
6:11 am
public because it's not working with has congress men and women who as well vein hearing are united in the statement that he's made and. and you know the president wanting to basically let the crown prince off the hoped for what's happened. i agree i don't think it is working i think we've reached a point in which even forks in washington are starting to see that this obsession with iran has gone quite a bit too far and i think what you're also seeing is that this saudi american relationship which has been a bipartisan issue is now going to become much more of a partisan question in the sense that many of the democrats will make their opposition to the current sound of the u.s. relationship a cornerstone of their foreign policy particularly from progresses is sound the american relationship as it stands right now and bodies almost everything that they
6:12 am
disagree with when it comes to american foreign policy everything from turning a blind eye to human rights violations everything from bases so much on it on arms sales to the lack of focus on gender equality and women's rights so for with them right excite this is going to continue in this is going to be the detriment of the saudi government who is looking for closure on this issue but it's not going to get all the foreign policy of this government has been to the detriment of the iranian government to the white house imposing new sanctions against iran on tuesday these wanted and what about the timing the same day that the cia gives its full report to the president reportedly holding the saudi crown prince responsible for a heinous crime it is unclear whether these sanctions are going to be parted lee effect or not and i agree that they want to does mr passing whether or not they're
6:13 am
affective sort of thing they warranted whether or not they'll be effective are they warranted. all because of the support for the syrian government that the iranians what the united states has had an opposition to the iranian and the russian support for the syrian government and if this truly is connected to that then the trumpet ministrations going to be able to make a case that they're warranted but they are part of a larger policy that i think more and more people in the united states are starting to believe is not in warranty because you can address these various issues through diplomacy is actually the only way the u.s. has been successful in changing iran and policies thus far yet to trouble them astray she is choosing to go down the path of sanctions and confrontation whether you think it's warranted what the iranians are doing or not doesn't mean necessarily that the methodology that the trunk restriction is using is one that can be successful and that in and of itself is one of the posse it's great to get your analysis on this so i really appreciate your time this straight apostle live
