10:06 pm
immigrant communities of being caught up in a dragnet of mass deportations and earlier in the week trump threaten to go around the supreme court and demand people answer a question in next year's census on whether they are u.s. citizens analysts say it's all part of a trial pattern this is a president who once said that he called for the total and complete shutdown of muslims entering into the united states once referred to mexicans as the rapists once started the barack obama birth or controversy and so it's really important when you see this sort of racism zina phobia massage any islamophobia coming from the commander in chief it's really important for minority communities here in the united states to act as intersectional allies to one another ensure that he's a one term president trumps anti immigrant and racially divided undertones in the run up to the 2016 election did not prevent him from becoming president he won anyway he now likely thinks that his latest rhetoric will not hurt his chances for
10:07 pm
reelection next year gabriels on dough al-jazeera washington will complete the snow line from washington d.c. what is the white house saying about this. well it's really notable that the white house isn't think anything about this in fact there have been opportunities in the last 24 hours or more for white house officials to speak on national television about this most are letting the president and his words for themselves for his part donald trump has continued to tweet doubling down even early this morning here in washington once again attacking those same progressive congress women especially declaring that every time they're confronted that their defense is to call those who attacked our challenge their views as racist now we should point out in all of this says gabriel osama has reported race relations in the united states continue to be particularly fragile most are pretty shocked in the united states that these
10:08 pm
kind of comments are coming from the president the united states they really are something more that many people would expect sort of a disorderly elderly uncle to say it at a family reunion that most would be embarrassed not something that sort of put out in social media for all of this we should point out that the president is likely to speak a little bit later today or at least there is the opportunity to speak when he hosts a made in america forum that will be taking place in the lawn of the white house in the coming hours we do expect that the media will challenge some of these tweets and we are very eager to see what the president might have to say about that but of course that can be gabriel alluded to in his report about the timing of these comments on the back of his rights across the country it's sort of so you can get to get. u.s. policy on what's coming out of the white house and how the white house. is really
10:09 pm
gearing up to selling those policies nationwide in the in the light about 2020 presidential election. yeah donald trump is a master manipulator of the news narrative but it's something that he did on the campaign trail a twin. 16 he continues to do it in the white house and presumably if he wins re-election will continue to do so he's very tuned to how the media works how he can control the narrative what he's doing right now by putting out these tweets we're talking exactly about what he wants to talk about it as and some would even argue helping his reelection bid by putting out discussing these very inflammatory issues in the united states this may be a part too because donald trump is facing some testimony on capitol hill the could perhaps be unfavorable there are a number of hearings that will take place particularly in the house side this week discussing immigration issues particularly with regard to the top administration policy is there's the robert muller testimony that will be coming it was originally
10:10 pm
scheduled for wednesday now will be next week and we've also gotten just the last few minutes or so some new news coming out of the department of justice as well as department of homeland security that the trumpet ministration is now putting into effect starting tomorrow some new rules with respect to asylum essentially what this will do is restrict those who can claim asylum in the united states this will particularly affect those that are flooding the southern border of the united states from central america essentially arguing that if you are entering from a so-called safe country in this case it would be in mexico that you cannot claim asylum what this would do essentially is limit those who may be migrating to the united states for economic reasons really putting to the front of the line those that are claiming that they are seeking asylum because of persecution so maybe in all of this the president mindful that this is something that will be discussed is trying to get ahead of that news narrative wolf that i believe if i can we hope of
10:11 pm
our correspondent in washington d.c. thank you. well u.s. congresswoman spoke exclusively to al-jazeera she says the u.s. is living through what she calls a historic toni's in time and double leadership. polarization in this country really has existed for a long time and what we're seeing right now is the an earthling of the kind of cancerous that could really present. but the positive things that every time when there is a challenge there is an opportunity so because we have the most the face of president we're living in. historically traumatizing time at least in my generation in this country. and you can watch our full interview with the lamo more on saturday at 430 g.m.t.
10:12 pm
. when the seller is co-founder of the women's public leadership network she joins me now live from washington d.c. via skype good to have you with us on the program some may argue that the only real americans are these sort of indigenous native american indians that everyone else originates from elsewhere including trump i mean what's your reaction to what his comments have been on twitter. i have to say i had to take a moment when i saw those tweets i was not only disgusted i felt really wronged because i'm a woman of color i'm a daughter of immigrants i was born and raised in a very rural part of west virginia surrounded by predominately white people and i never realized my color because growing up in the early eighty's in southern west virginia i felt like i was just as american as everybody else and today that there is no mary i ruffin is a race that supports this president and the people overwhelmingly voted for him gave him this presidency and there's a sense in me that maybe there have been
10:13 pm
a lot more people who carry the sentiment that this president reflected in those tweets more so than i thought all these years i mean his own party have for the moment sort of remained quiet on the matter a lot so you for the moment are you expecting any critical comment. you know i think right now everybody is doing what they usually do with the president outlandish comments and what i say everybody i mean we're all in members of the u.s. senate and the house inside they're likely troubled and aghast lightly not believing that there is somebody who occupies the oval office clearly doesn't understand our constitution doesn't understand the values that are in strength in our constitution that these people these elected officials on the republican side are likely going to be quiet that the jury of that because they worry about their big worry about being reelected if they lose the ybor republicans nationally as well as the white
10:14 pm
house but you are republican yourself and so i have to ask you know does the policy performance the statements of the code it republican president and his administration really fit with who you are i mean do you still have the same ideology and stunts all the all the republican movement in the usa in 2019. yes simply put so you know i don't i don't reflect the republican electorate these days i've been a republican strategist long before president truck came down the goal of the escalator declaring his candidacy as a republican at that time myself and many established republicans who lived in washington worked for other republicans years felt that he was a joke we felt that he was hijacked the republican party big unions and i feel the same today that you answered your question do i in my inbox that with today's republican party absolutely not with you i believe in the core values of the party
10:15 pm
was very founded upon that i know that the party really cares about grounds i'm physically more conservative than i am socially and that's ok because i don't think this president is really a republican i think he hijacked the party and remade it in the in can eat youth image and therefore the party is going to require a real soul search after he has done it in office so the moment i would you say that this sort of stunts from president trump will affect his support base as he sort of heads towards reelection in 2020 i mean it's based still there was it's really behind to hold the base that he thinks he has. so there are 2 things here i think number one the republican electorate is not as racist as perhaps the mainstream media in the us paints it out to be accountable to the country and have a great privilege of doing so for my work over many years i have the privilege of traveling the world i can tell you there are good united states that don't hold these to white supremacist values but the real calm has been that the city present
10:16 pm
united states has not denounced white nationalism this primacy he's not denounced it. and that of course it has given rise to a faction of republicans that do have weak and carry racism and therefore the color of the whole party in that sentiment i think there are a lot of republicans me why at this moment secondly do i think the base is going to abandon him for remarks i don't think so because they have their full support behind him and there were 3 tribalism has meet them where he rose colored glasses or the president and therefore they weren't and got him simply because of these comments he said much worse indeed we shall see what does happen for the women we know she has been a pleasure to have you all to play with thanks very much for your insight thank you so much as to whether the his cabinet back in the states is to looking at hurricane barry well the hurricane is the over was talking about
10:17 pm

10:25 pm
how to deal with this crisis and this is essentially a trust issue the protestors also believe that their interests really are not focused on the welfare of the hong kong people as they describe it but towards more of her loyalty to beijing and mainland china in general and the letter issued by police officers junior police officers requesting for better security for their homes and their families signals basically that the police force is going through as a very difficult situation compared to the 2014 movement several years ago both sides accusing each other of violence we've seen that over the last few days it remains to be seen what sort of concessions can carry lands a government offer but what is clear though based on what the statements we've gotten from this protest here is that there won't be an end to the current situation that there will continue to protest until real political reforms are in

place the truth will with the united states is hoping to try to it's a call to be economic growth was not slow it's the 27 of the past 3 months 6.2 percent growth the g.d.p. was down from 6.4 percent in the 1st quarter of this all important trade struggles despite tax cuts boosting spending to stimulate the world's 2nd largest economy when he wants more from beijing. well the chinese government weren't set out right but there's no doubt they will be concerned about some of the economic numbers that are coming out it wasn't all doom and gloom on the release of these latest figures there were some bright spots retail sales and industrial output both showed some positive signs in the 2nd quarter of the year industrial output in particular will be welcomed because that sick to had been struggling recently resulting in many factories around china laying off staff but it's the overall trend in economic
10:27 pm
growth that has been falling that will be causing a lot of concern really since the end of 2012 it's been declining with the odd reprieve along the way part of a global trend of course the global economy is slowing down and in fact many countries in and around the world would welcome would want to have some of the numbers that china is reporting right now but china of course needs to be looked at a little bit differently to most countries and around the world because of the remarkable economic growth that it has been through if we go back to the global financial crisis in 2009 even in that difficult time china didn't report quarterly growth below 6.4 percent well we're beneath that now so naturally that is going to be causing some concern both within china around asia and beyond and of course all this happening amid the trade dispute between china and the united states the latest trade statistics came out on friday as well showing that imports and exports
10:28 pm
are down and perhaps the most concerning thing is that we don't know when this trade war is going to end yes there's been a truce declared between the 2 presidents meaning no new tariffs are being placed on each other's goods but we still don't know when those face to face negotiations are going to restarts. south korea's president is urging japan to resume talks on their escalating trade dispute. as the japanese economy will suffer from the recent restrictions imposed on high tech exports to south korea trade negotiators failed to reach agreement in talks last week and that ban has for dozens of small business owners in the capital seoul to urge south koreans to boycott japanese goods japan's restriction of high tech exports is seen as retaliation against court rulings in south korea judges ordered japanese companies to pay compensation for forced labor during the 2nd world war. and your monsoon rains have left a trail of devastation across asia in nepal at least 67 people have been killed in
