this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up tens of thousands of children dying in yemen save the children says the deaths are entirely preventable. plus tension on the border as asylum seekers try to reach the u.s. from mexico. a betrayal of american values that's how u.s. politicians are describing donald trump's refusal to hold saudi arabia accountable for the murder of journalist. the president cast doubt on his own intelligence agency which concluded the saudi crown prince ordered the killing he says mohammed bin sound man's role may never be fully known transfer responses provoking strong responses from both sides of the. the senate foreign relations committee has asked
for an inquiry that specifically looks into the crown prince's role in the murder turkey says it may push for an international inquiry its foreign minister says they shouldn't be a cover up to maintain trade ties with riyadh chapter ten c. reports now from washington d.c. . i hear by the way you. are the white house thanksgiving tradition of the president pardoning a turkey took on a grim significance this year a short time earlier donald trump made it clear he was giving the saudi crown prince a pass in the killing of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi in an eight paragraph statement filled with the rhetorical flourishes the exclamation marks and slogans characteristic of the president's tweets don't trump made his argument king solomon and crown prince mohammed bin simon vigorously denying 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 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 comp a.o. in washington the turkish foreign minister also discussed the complexity of his nation's relations with saudi arabia making it clear that ankara did not want to sabotage those links but he added this we know well that the team who came to istanbul. 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 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 message to send to saudi arabia and the world but it seems the trumpet ministration has made a decision not to be concerned by the ridicule and disbelief that has greeted its arguments and ultimate position on the khashoggi killing she ever time to see
al-jazeera washington as govern out kimberly halkett live for us in washington d.c. kimberly we can make no mistake about it a lot of noise coming from congress what happens next in the u.s. congress. there's going to be a lot happening in the u.s. congress is trying to piece it out a little bit what we've got here now essentially is an effort and it's a bipartisan effort that is notable in a divided congress were congress is ordered the trumpet ministration to investigate had been some of the saudi crown prince this role in the death of jim even as the president in his statement that he released is casting doubt on his role saying we may never know the facts in fact the u.s. congress feels much differently that's why they have sent this letter triggering the global magnitsky act once again we've seen this before the u.s. congress did send a similar letter to the white house on october tenth that resulted in seventeen
sanctions against saudi nationals but notably none of the members of the royal family listed in those seventeen individual sanctions so this is something that congress is pressing for because there is this belief that the saudi crown prince did in fact ordered the killing played an instrumental role even as the united states in the form of the letter from donald trump is saying that saudi arabia is a great ally and friend of the united states significant and prominent senior members of both the president's republican party and the democratic party believes otherwise what will creasing the approach really devalue the u.s. do with a turkish attempt the possibility of a turkish to turn this into an international investigation involving the u.n. . well you know. this is certainly going to put the
united states in an uncomfortable position but at the same time there is a recognition in the global community that the president stands alone on this he his press release said at the top america first but the press release in the view of many members of congress read like saudi arabia first like it was a press release written by the kingdom itself so i think there is a recognition of that there are already efforts to push at the united nations level for further investigation but you have to remember the world community is watching as the u.s. congress does the very same thing this is why the u.s. constitution was set up with a co-equal branches of government the legislative in the executive it's a check on executive power and that's what we're seeing right now so not only reschooling to see the global magnitsky act that has now been triggered and a potential result in more sanctions but we've got other actions that are going on as well there's a push from former administration officials like cia director john brennan to have
congress press to have the cia report released and made public and we should remind our viewers that that report according to one state department official says that it's blindingly obvious in its conclusions that the crown prince ordered the killing of jamal high shows so even if the president is saying that we may never know the facts other administration former administration officials are saying let's let the public see these facts and we should add there are also further actions that are in the u.s. congress right now and that is in the form of two different legislative efforts one that could be taken up as early as next week in the u.s. senate to change the fundamental relationship between the united states and saudi arabia not only blocking potential arms sales for offensive purposes but also permanently halting the support by the united states for the saudi led conflict in yemen so there is certainly a lot of effort that is underway in the united states as you point out there is
increasing international pressure there can believe how could that from washington d.c. and. more now from tony berkeley he's in istanbul with more of so his reaction to trump statement the turks now are in this difficult position they want this pursuit of justice to carry on they feel they probably can't do it on their own behalf they need some international body maybe the u.n. for example because it's quite clear the u.s. is not going to push saudi arabia on this matter the response though has been rather muted i think officially in public the most we've heard is the deputy leader of the ruling a k party mr pneumococcal motion and he said that mr president's statement was comical but that's the closest we have got i mean the turks do find themselves in a difficult position here because while on the one hand they they want to pursue justice it's a moral responsibility for them they also want to metate maintain and improve relations both in washington and with saudi arabia but they are
a little bit concerned now they're looking focusing more on finding the perpetrators and finding out who was behind the murder a mystical saji they're very disappointed at the response from the saudis for example they faith feel that this joint investigation is not going anywhere they don't feel the saudis are cooperating they've asked for additional information that if it wasn't the saudi crown prince then who was it. donald trump statement defending the u.s. saudi relationship didn't begin with riyadh though instead it concentrated on its regional rival iran in the opening lines trump cited to iran as an example of how quote the world is a dangerous place he accused of being responsible for the war in yemen and of trying to destabilize the middle east runs foreign minister developed zarif issued a swift response on twitter 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 were also responsible for the california fires because we didn't help rake the forests just like the fins do. on our fun site of the research director at the anchor institute and formally advised the turkish prime minister he says turkey and the u.s. are not on the same page when it comes to the case. there's a very huge gap between washington's anchor his position on the issue whenever when you are looking at the state department's briefing regarding the meeting with mr pompei or mr cho schaller they're just mentioning just that bit about it's a question about just how they do it is much more different than the turkish case but turkey's your it is exactly the. case because it too has a potential to deteriorate its relations with the saudi arabia and this is so important thing because if this case won't be revealed the facts won't be revealed then stumble won't be as safe have been for you all people coming from all around the
world and that is that why this case should be sold in any way and the international inquiry is also an important but what is important you know at the end of this month mr trump and mr rudd on will be meeting a g. twenty meeting in argentina and i think we need to wait for this meeting to see exactly what will happen on this contract. case the un envoy for yemen has arrived in the capital sana'a to meet her three leaders in the latest push for political talks when the civil war his visit comes as a day agencies warn of an urgent need to reach hundreds of thousands of severely malnourished yemeni children before it's too late to save the children says around eighty five thousand children under five may have died from extreme hunger since the saudi u.a.e. coalition began its air campaign the u.n. warns at least fourteen million people are at risk of famine and the estimated four

people try and do is get over the fence and then as soon as they touch u.s. soil hand themselves into authorities and ask for asylum stopping that may be one less legal avenue for them but now temporarily it's been opened up again many in the caravan already trying to ask for asylum through the point of entry anyway but those that we spoke to in the caravans makeshift camps were simply unaware of the legal fight around the hazy on the obstacles ahead. but only god knows what's going to happen if we see we can cross will cross if got permits will get work here because he wasn't buying a lot but if we cross over in peace i think things will be ok. but if we go causing problems they're going to hitters and deport us. when you don't know that trying to escape from crippling poverty back in their homeland doesn't mean they're eligible for asylum in the us they've made it this far just by keeping them going this may be the point when that's not enough to go for john home and. the plumber
