welcome back to al-jazeera with me still robin a reminder of our top news stories european foreign ministers are meeting in brussels to find ways to convince iran and the u.s. to start dialogue after months of tension to iran and said it remains committed to the agreement so long as other parties also maintain their commitment. former south african president jacob zuma has told me choir into government corruption that he is the target of a conspiracy so it was forced from office last year accused of overseeing the mass looting of state funds. now the us president is under fire for a series of racially charged tweets against democratic congresswoman donald trump called the foreign born troublemakers and told them to go back from where they came under as more washington d.c. . that the human is ation is not only with those families but it's also with the
agents that we've had told to do this tv's families their 1st time congress women and vocal critics of the us president and it appears they've gotten under donald trump skin he took to twitter to say in part progressive democrat congress women who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe should go back to the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came however 3 of the congress women were born in the u.s. not elsewhere as he suggested alexandria cortez of puerto rican descent was born in new york ayana presley is from massachusetts and russia to tell you the palestinian american was born in michigan she responded to trump's attack on social media this is our country and no amount of heathfield myleene from the white house is going to
change that we're going to fight back together and we're going to become stronger for it please know that i'll never back down no bully no kind of attack to silence me is going to work another target of trump congresswoman ileana omar was born in somalia came to the u.s. as a refugee when she was a teenager and became a u.s. citizen nearly 20 years ago omar responded to trump by tweeting mr president as members of congress the only country we swear an oath to is the united states which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. the racially tinge tweets came on the same day trump said immigration officials would be conducting raids throughout the country to arrest any vict undocumented migrants with removal orders it stoked fear in 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 and it was 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 reelection next year gabriel's on dough al-jazeera washington the
us president has doubled up with more tweets attacking the colas within the last few was. more from washington d.c. . the white house is distancing itself from the president's comments even as donald trump continues to defend his earlier tweets that many have described as not only xenophobia but also designed to divide the nation it is notable that no prominent republicans members of the president's own political party have spoken out in defense of the president the question becomes why the president is making these very inflammatory remarks in an already divided nation when it comes to race now this may have to do with a number of hearings that are set to take place on capitol hill looking into trump immigration policies this also could have something to do with the fact that the department of justice and department of homeland security have just announced that
they are putting in place affective on tuesday new rules regarding seeking asylum that essentially will have a major impact on those migrating to the united states from countries like hunt douras nicaragua guatemala essentially making the argument that no longer will they be able to claim asylum if they have to travel through a so-called safe country in this case it would be mexico what this will do is restrict the number of people who can claim asylum essentially the attorney general bill barr saying that this will stop what he called forum shopping essentially restricting those who are claiming asylum for economic reasons living and putting to the front of the line those that are claiming asylum because they say they're facing persecution. to health workers find to be about a break in the democratic republic of congo have been murdered as they were killed in their homes in north kivu province earlier doctors confirmed the 1st case of the virus in a major city where it's home to a 1000000 people exposed to concern the virus could spread quickly in the densely
populated area close to the border with no wonder well since the latest outbreak last august only 1700 people have died the health ministry says the patient being treated to go by is a church preacher who touches the hands of worship as. the confirmed case in goma has prompted the world health organization to reconsider whether it should declare the break a global emergency the identification of the carriers in goma could potentially be a game changer in this epidemic we are confident in the measures we are put in place and hope that we will see no further transmission of ebola in goma nevertheless we cannot be too careful i have therefore decided to reconvene the emergency committee as soon as possible to assess the threat of this development. my ruby in kenya so ministry of health officials in the our congress say that the
situation in goma the cops all of north is pretty much under control they say that they have been preparing for months for such an outcome and have been sensitizing people as well as setting up hand washing areas in different places so they say it's unlikely that the disease is going to spread farther but it's always a concern because this is one of the major cities in the our congo has about a 1000000 people living there it's right at the border with a random and this man whose case was concerned is actually a pastor who had traveled to temple about 200 kilometers north of to pray for patients so he was quickly isolated on arrival in goma and is being transported and a very heavy security from the military back to the people who were with him in the baskets traveling in have also been isolated and are being vaccinated as well but
we also did speak to an official of the international federation of the red cross who has just come back from those areas and he's saying that he's concerned that this seeing the disease coming back in areas like benny where it had been contained . the average is actually flaring up in bernie again a place where we had cases of the beginning where the number of cases that gone down and where we're seeing now. the outbreak raging again this is the new wave the center of of the outbreak the ministry of health has also confirmed that 2 community health workers who were very involved in spreading awareness in some of these areas that have been affected the temple in particular that they were killed on saturday night it's not clear who killed them but they have been receiving threats from their work they've been receiving threats since december and this just goes to show how precarious the security situation is in some of this areas.
further anger protesters demanding her resignation by calling them rioters she made a comment to the hospital where 3 police officers were injured during clashes on sunday and they were being treated tens of thousands of people in hong kong are opposing a proposed extradition bill with china more rallies are planned in the coming weeks . caroline a statement condemning the violence and basically vowing to make those responsible accountable violence committed against police force is not surprising for the protestors that just basically is a reaffirmation that there has been no change in her policy and approach towards how to deal with this crisis and this is essentially a trust issue the protesters 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 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. 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 spro testers here is that there won't be an end to the current situation that they will continue to protest until real political reforms are in place china has released its latest economic figures. being helped by the trade war with the states growth in the 2nd quarter of the 27. 6.2 percent from 6.4 percent in the 1st quarter of china's old important export
trade tool so it fro despite. spending to stimulate the rules 2nd largest economy. 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 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 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

where he said that he believed that both the iranian government and the u.s. government had made bad decisions the iranians for deciding to enrich more you rhenium than they are are supposed to under the terms of the deal but also the united states government pulling out of the deal in the 1st place the question about whether what they can really achieve here well there already they have already been putting in place measures to help the iranian government to get around to circumvent legally the full weight of u.s. economic sanctions with a scheme called in stack's which is designed to facilitate transactions between western companies and iran it's not entirely up and running it's certainly the u. believes that this is a mechanism that can help the arena ends but clearly the e.u. wants to see some sort of quid pro quos some sort of gesture from the iranian side also to indicate that they are still within the terms of of this deal and they
remain committed to it more than just statements like the one that you that you mentioned in your introduction we expect this meeting a news conference to come from it any time from now on and of course when we have that news conference we'll bring to you as soon as we can what is said at it dominic thanks very much dorsey joins us live now from tehran to also tell us more about what the foreign ministry has been saying about all this today. well the same in that was issued by the spokesperson of us mousavi highlights the fact that a rainy and so are really have had enough of this talk from the european signatories of this agreement they say that 14 months on from when the united states decided to pull out of this deal the europeans have not upheld their end of the bargain and the iranians are tired of waiting they're not going to remain in this deal by themselves or at any cost the reigning president has said that from me $8.00 he said 60 day deadlines for the europeans that every 60 days the rains will
scale back their commitment to this nuclear agreement to try and force their remaining signatories to uphold their end of the deal one of the main issues they have is that the europeans have not really invested in iran's economy as they were supposed to under these this nuclear agreement the iranians said that they're not going to be in this by themselves they need some kind of a show of support from the europeans some kind of concrete action that they are not going to just stand by and let the steel go on without the iranians holding back their nuclear program and one of the reasons they've decided to enrich uranium at a slightly higher level is the agreement states it should be at 3.67 percent the arrangements have upped up to 4.5 for now they're saying this is all measures to show and force the europeans that we are serious about this agreement and we don't have to stay in it that we can take measures to show that we are trying to force you to uphold your end of the deal so we'll have to see what the europeans come
