3:41 am
embracing the stars and stripes off to a failed summit in vietnam and damaging testimony from his former lawyer donald trump returns to the warmth of his core support. i'm maryanne demasi in london you're with al-jazeera also coming up on the program a push for peace in afghanistan talks take place in doha but on the ground attacks by the taliban continue. tightening the noose u.s. backed forces advance on five fronts in the battle to retake eisold last helped village in syria. three you right here. and landmark left off a successful test launch that could pave the way and now set to resume manned space flights.
3:42 am
it's been a week that saw a failed summit with north korea and an explosive testimony by his former lawyer. of criminal conspiracy the us president has now returned home to a far more friendly setting donald trump is addressing some of his core supporters at the largest annual gathering of conservatives in america the conservative political action conference known as c pac he's using the platform to criticize democrats for questioning his personal finances in congressional inquiries the ante gallagher joins us now live from the conference just outside of washington it's been an uncomfortable week the president has met what's he been saying to his supporters that today. well it may have been an uncomfortable week but it certainly isn't uncomfortable in this room a very warm welcome for the president he's talked about the love among the crowd and the love he has for his core supporters he's been talking now for almost two hours one of the longest speeches i've ever heard the president makes it longer than the rallies that i've been to but the themes are the ones we would expect to
3:43 am
use talks about his relationship with china the economy immigration very little has been said about that meeting in vietnam over north korea or what michael cohen his former fixer was saying in congress last week this is really about donald trump energizing his base as a sea of red my guy behind me you can probably see that he only very briefly mentioned a model report but let's just listen to what he had to say. they fight so hard on this which chant this phony deal that they put together this phony thing that now looks like it's dying so they don't have anything with russia there's no collusion so now they go and morph into let's inspect every deal he's ever done we're going to go into his finances we're going to jackies deals we get a check these people are sick. this year. i saw
3:44 am
a little shifty shift yesterday i know it's a first time he won a joint meeting. and he shared were gorgeous look into his finance i say where did that come from he always talked about russia collusion with russia the collusion delusion. so this is a relaxed president a jovial president certainly he knows he's getting lots of support from the crowd here but a serious message non the less one of those is heading into the twenty twenty company is identifying his opponents the democrats as socialists even talk about that over and over again i didn't talk about that a couple of weeks ago in my meeting was talking to venezuelan extract that will become a theme of the twenty twenty election and he's talked at length here about some of his opponents and how he wants them to go ahead and talk about the green deal the crowd laughing that sort of material up so he is at this point in time a very confident president ever in his chanting four more years means that he's
3:45 am
going to be in office for another six years so expect over the next year those campaign themes to expand that theme of his his opponents being socialist to expand but certainly what the president is doing here is energizing his base and they are very happy people his running in for almost two hours listening to this president speak. thank you very much johnny gallico with the latest there from oxon hill. my level talks between the u.s. and the afghan taliban have concluded in doha with no agreement that's despite the u.s. envoys saying earlier that a previous round of talks made unprecedented progress to end the seventeen year war the taliban is refusing to directly negotiate with the afghan government and it wants foreign forces to withdraw its delegation is led by the co-founder of the.

dosage of bari. they four has wrapped up here in doha without any specific agreement being reached between the taliban and the u.s. but the taliban spokesperson is optimistic that they're on the right path he said that the have made progress but they haven't finalized any kind of agreements and of course at stake here is the future of over thirty five million people in afghanistan something the taliban wants to make sure that they are involved in their future and their governments that is the issue here is the idea of u.s. withdrawals there's a u.s. troop withdrawal that is there's a lot for ten thousand u.s. troops in afghanistan and the taliban wants them to leave their country the other main issue is that the taliban does not recognize the current government in office . as legitimate they are not negotiating with them they're not being represented here and that is something the americans hope they can work on to bring the two sides together to have a dialogue that will discuss the future of their country with all parties involved
