5:00 am
and exciting inspirational careless mother. join the global conversation in your thoughts go to twitter and. on down to 0. this is 0. 11 welcome i'm difficult polony your watching the news hour live from doha it's good to have your company coming up in the next 60 minutes we can we will not be silenced. for us congresswomen hit back against donald trump who's accused them of being anti american. changing the rules the u.s. unveils a new asylum policy aimed at limiting the number of central americans arriving from mexico. and overwhelming vote in the u.s.
5:01 am
house condemning human rights abuses in saudi arabia. and the monsoon rains have eased but the death toll is rising will be on the ground in nepal for the latest. for democratic us congress women have responded sharply its attacks by president donald trump on their patriotism and citizenship they are among the hyped highest profile members of the new house of representatives now all 4 reacted strongly to trump's tweets and comments this country was founded on the radical idea that we are created equal and endowed by our creator with in inalienable rights and yes we have a long way before we fully live up to those values. it is
5:02 am
for this reason precisely that we have to take action when a president is openly violating the goals he took to the constitution of the united states and the core values we aspire. as marsa luther king said all we say to america is to be true to what you say on paper as we all know the recent tweets and words from the president are simply a continuation of his racist zina phobic playbook we cannot allow these hateful actions by the president to distract us from the critical work to hold this administration accountable to the inhumane conditions at the border that is separating children from their loved ones and caging them up in the legal horrific conditions well trump is refusing to back down despite the growing criticism of his racially charged comments about the women and said he's calling on them to apologize to america and israel for what he described as the fall language they
5:03 am
have used and the terrible things they have said he's accused them of being anti sematic and anti america the latest storm began at the weekend when he attacked the 1st term congresswoman and treats widely condemned as racist he said they were originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe and they should go back and help fix the broken and crime infested places from which they came 3 of the 4 women he's thought to be referring to were born in the u.s. and the other arrived as a child refugee are white house correspondent kimberly how to more. these are people that in my opinion hate our country despite widespread outrage and accusations of xenophobia u.s. president donald trump on monday escalated his twitter tirade against 4 democratic congresswoman from diverse backgrounds arguing they should return to where they came from if you're not happy here then you can leave so far as i'm concerned if
5:04 am
you hate our country if you're not happy here you could leave trump's comments follow a series of tweets sent over 2 days attacking democratic party representatives alexandria cast your cortez of new york and omar of minnesota where she did to leave of michigan at a on a press lee of massachusetts of the group only omar is foreign born but all are u.s. citizens democratic house speaker nancy pelosi announced a resolution condemning trump's tweets as the congresswoman fired back this is simply a disruption and a distraction from the callous chaotic and corrupt culture of this administration all the way down i am not surprised at what he's doing. but i also know that we're focused on making it better because we don't leave the things that we love and when we love this country what that means
5:05 am
is that we propose the solutions to fix it we love all people in this country despite pushback from democrats congressional republicans have been slow to can down one senator charged crossed a line another one of the few black republicans in congress accused of using racially offensive language but another top republican senator defended trump's attacks on the democratic congresswoman their socialist they are anti semitic they stand for all the things that most americans disagree with one analyst argues all this is part of trump's reelection strategy and the president believes that he got elected because he talked about the war he talked about the immigration he talked about the muslim being and so what we're seeing. donald trump 2.0 for his part donald trump denies any racial atomised both of his record of lowering
5:06 am
unemployment particularly among people of color and despite the shock of millions who hoard donald trump's latest statements there exists in the united states millions more who support the president's attacks can really help at al-jazeera the white house other earlier i spoke to jennifer proxy limit she's the co-founder of the republican women for progress and she told me the republican leadership is to blame for letting trump go this far. well as a as a republican i am constantly surprised and i probably shouldn't be by now about how there's always a lack of response when you know trump does these horrible things i think that you know and especially in this issue this isn't a trick question right like this is clearly racism trump is targeting minority women because they don't look like the rest of us and they and he's not targeting the with the white men in congress who are foreign born and you know at this point
5:07 am
a lot of republicans are very comfortable with the administration and i think they're just hoping you know after trump leaves office they'll be able to pick up where that where they left off and it is it is a terrible thing that you know when these issues of racism when trump tries to divide us and frankly he's just trying to distract from what's happening at the border i think most people know that by now. but you know after trump believes. i don't think that republicans in office right now are taking to heart the damage that has been done and they can't simply ignore what has done what trump has done to our country and what he's done to the republican party and that's something they're absolutely going to have to answer for and the silence how does that make you feel about being a republican does that change your views about your party and your politics well in in 2016 when we started republican women for hillary and now we're republican women
5:08 am
for progress and we spoke out when trump was saying massage honest comments about meg and kelly and talking about mexican immigrants i just thought so many republicans would join us in rebuking these these horrible things trump was saying and you know i am still surprised that you know term continually does all of these things and we continue to hear silence from republican lawmakers or they're doubling down or they're trying to qualify their statements you know like oh well these representatives we don't agree with their political. beliefs so. it's hard for us to come out and say that they're racist you know as a republican it is despicable to me it is shameful and i am ashamed of our republican leaders and our republican leadership that they have let this go on for so long and created this environment where donald trump continues to feel like he can create that he can treat american citizens like this so our hope is that we can
5:09 am
get more elected officials who can actually serve the people now you've been very outspoken in your views and you've been very clear about how you feel about the president and his comments that but i've been called racist why do you think so few others have spoken out on this well you know i think a lot of republicans are just hoping that people won't notice and that if they stay silent they'll be safe you know we've seen what trump does to people who disagree with him you know i think republican of republicans feel very safe in their jobs and just want to ignore the situation because it doesn't it doesn't affect them personally. and you know if you're representing your constituents you absolutely cannot keep doing that and you at we can't have the republican party continue like this so what's why why republicans like us and republicans for progress why we keep speaking out is we don't want to lose the party to racists like this we don't want
5:10 am
to lose the party to donald trump and we want to take back that party and create a new party that can actually stand up for immigrant stand up for people of color and women and minorities and you know we just aren't seeing that with our current public and leadership and led by donald trump because they are owning all of the racism donald trump has brought to america. the u.s. has announced tough new asylum rules to change to stem the flow of migrants crossing the us mexico border the rule goes into effect on tuesday but it is expected to be challenged in court the plan blocks migrants seeking asylum in the united states if they have travel through another safe country 1st without applying for asylum there however those who have been trafficked will be excluded from the ban the new rules are likely to affect central american families who travel through mexico to seek asylum in the u.s. the announcement comes as a court in guatemala blocked president jimmy morales from signing
5:11 am
a separate deal with the u.s. that would have designated the nation as a safe 3rd country mexico has also rejected the new u.s. measures when all a problem has a reaction from mexico city. there was pushback in mexico in response to that change in policy announced by the united states the asylum laws and i'll give you we need to talk about the context here if you were a migrant traveling from central america safe under a sort of solved or making your way through guatemala and through mexico that automatically disqualifies you from being able to seek asylum in the united states under this new policy now there's a reason why there's so much pushback here in mexico on one end mexico the united states have no agreement that would force mexico to house asylum seekers that's something that mexico would have to ratify via legislation it would be up to the mexican congress to determine that mexico is to be designated a quote unquote safe 3rd country without approval from congress mexico is in no way obligated to adopt or accommodate to this new change in policy in the united states
5:12 am
this is something that the foreign minister of mexico my sent abroad has said is not going to happen the foreign minister has also said that he does not agree with this decision by the united states and and in no way will mexico be changing its own immigration policies or its own asylum policies to accommodate for this new change in the united states furthermore this is one aspect of the migrant crisis that keeps getting brought up in this stemming the flow of migrants it being up to mexico to stem the flow of migrants that's the pressure that the united states has on mexico yet these policies do nothing to address the root causes of migration in central america countries like honduras guatemala as well as solved or which are rampant political corruption widespread poverty and of course the high levels of violence plaguing these countries. we have plenty more still ahead this hour including indonesia fishes for a solution to plastic pollution threatening its coastlines. if yalit is that
5:13 am
a deal has. avoided developed a nuclear weapon. the foreign affairs chief says she's committed to the 2050 nuclear deal and calls terror on speeches in significant. and england's cricketers are on earth after their world cup victory are we'll have the details in sport. now the lower house of the u.s. congress has passed 2 bills on saudi arabia condemning human rights abuses and seeking accountability for the murder of the saudi journalist jamal khashoggi it has criticized for detaining female human rights activists and the received an overwhelming $405.00 to $7.00 vote but despite a strong bipartisan backing the measures may be challenged in the republican dominated senate well for more on this as ondo is in washington d.c.
5:14 am
so gabriel what more can you tell us about this. yeah this was the saudi arabia human rights and accountability bill and it was sought to do just that as you mention seek accountability for the murder of washington post journalist jamal khashoggi as you also mentioned it overwhelmingly passed monday night house of representatives 405 lawmakers for it only 7 against it it has 3 key components number one the bill asked that the director of national intelligence dan coats provide answers to a series of very simple questions who planned ordered executed and then covered up the murder of that's number one it's important to note that already the central and terror teligent say agency or cia in the u.s. has already identified saudi crown prince mohammed bin solomon as the one that ordered the murder of khashoggi but number 2 the 2nd part of this bill is that anyone then identified by the director of national intelligence as being part of in
5:15 am
any way the murder of the shoji would then be sanctioned by the u.s. have there or ability to travel to the u.s. then revoked again already 17 saudis directly associated with the show she's murder are already sanctioned and and that those are the key elements of this bill this is what tom malinowski the democrat from new jersey that sponsored the bill this is what he had to say about it now is the time to make clear that reckless behavior whether the murder of an american resident or the kidnapping of the lebanese prime minister where the blockade of cutter carry a price that the men rules saudi arabia need to take our interests and values into account rather than always counting on us to cover up for them while the trump administration still considers the crown prince and saudi arabia unconditional our allies in unconditional support clearly the house of representatives send a much different message monday night and they still want answers on the murder of
5:16 am
. thank you very much gabriel elizondo from win washington d.c. for us but we can get more on this with john jones he's a former senate national security director and former senior congressional advisor joins me from washington d.c. thank you very much and good to have you on the program as we said the lower house has passed a bill on the situation of human rights in saudi arabia and also on the crucial demerger but do you think this is actually going to translate into any action. not not in the immediate future right now this is basically a strike across the bow from the house of representatives to basically put them on record on where they stand in terms of u.s. saudi relations especially speaking and declaring their position as a pertains to the human rights situation in saudi arabia as well as the u.s.
5:17 am
response at least from the legislator as it pertains to the murder of jamal. but as we look ahead it is rather unlikely that the republican dominated senate is going to take up this issue in the near term and on top of that right now if the ministration wanted to act as it pertains to the saudi relationship they could ministration has it in its full power to implement its own sink shin's against saudi arabia could implement its own saying sheens barring certain saudi nationals from coming to the united states from obtaining visas or from being able to access financial resources our resources our assets in the united states but right now the administration is perfectly happy as it stands with the u.s. saudi relationship and in the near term most folks don't see anything changing so
5:18 am
they do have the tools for recourse particularly with the murder why do you think this administration is so reluctant to follow this through or impose any kind of punishment on saudi arabia for their actions against human rights and also against what they have been doing in particular with. well there's 2 particular viewpoints on it right now some would say that again the administration is perfectly happy with the u.s. saudi relationship as it stands from economic point of view a security point of view or even if you look at the larger relationship in terms of maintaining u.s. interest in the middle east region and on the other hand you have those that will say look at the end of the day saudi arabia has opened up now there are steps that
5:19 am
they have taken in terms of human rights have been incremental but they have been short and small positive steps so there are those that feel that it's better to continue to engage with saudi arabia rather than saying shouldn't push them away is there a security issue if these. saudi arabia's human rights abuses are not addressed and particularly if the killing of not address what this pose any kind of security issue for the u.s. in the future. what i believe in the court of public opinion it could be not helpful to the larger u.s. goals in the region absolutely the united states has always been seen as a standard bearer for the promotion of human rights not only in the middle east but in the international community and what has happened in perth pertaining to the
5:20 am
murder of jamal khashoggi karelia be a stain on the you know in the united states' image in the middle east and the larger international community so it is not helpful in terms of. the hopeful. would united states want to be the positive use of the u.s. and future relationships with democratic states in the region into the in the international community but look it doesn't necessarily depend on what's going to happen legislatively because even if something were passed legislative legislation were passed out of the senate it could be vetoed and probably would be vetoed by the white house however legislators in the house and senate do have the bully pulpit that they may utilize to actually reach out and push us corporations and
5:21 am
multinational corporations to really think and ask if it's in their interest to continue to engage in saudi arabia there are many different things now side of the legislative framework that could happen here in the near future ok great john jones good to speak to you thank you for your insight and thoughts. now the death toll is rising following flooding across the subcontinent at least $24.00 people are now feared dead after heavy rains and flash floods in the neelam valley in pakistan administered kashmir several people are missing the floods damaged roads and more than 250 homes officials warn that the death toll may increase as rescuers struggle to reach affected areas and at least 10 people have died in floods in bangladesh one soon rain swept away houses leaving thousands of people displaced some of the worst damage has been in refugee camps and cox's bazaar home to 1000000

5:28 am
how the most recent pictures of flooding in china have come from around the yangtze from the satellite picture using the some disorganization in the frontal system this is it and he's quite disorganized in fact is nowhere near the yanks here are the but i think the trend is of the next to take the rainfall further north eventually taking hong kong out of there cloudy and rugged close weather still $35.00 degrees with a change of wind direction i think will be telling that's generated by what could well be a tropical cyclone. helping to the east of the philippines so a lot of rain still to come as funnels will hon possibly as far west as children do a little less so than a full gen i'm going dong so that is china let's just drift slow resized you know what's happening in the philippines luzon looks like being particularly when the same is true for the sas mindanao and it will probably catch the sounds of vietnam in the north of the armed of born here it does mean we see from the satellite
5:29 am
picture little is going on in indonesia there must be one or 2 big east to salou is a west papua but the dark green is where the heavy rain is it stretches back maybe into the southern part of thailand but you see the concentration is still the philippines the cloud is increasing further says bourne is dissipated but doesn't look very wet. wasn't sponsored by toning. on counting the cost $3.00 decades after the collapse of the soviet union russia gaging with africa to raise its political clout and we look at the economics behind so his decision to buy the s. $400.00 and f. $35.00 stealth bomber counting the cost. for the last 2 years the students have been collecting rubbish every day it's helped clean up the campus and helped build some of its facilities for every 2 kilo's of plastic
5:30 am
waste they collect this school receives a brick made of plastic and cement. for some activists this may not be the most ecological way to eliminate the problems of plastic but this is seen as an immediate solution to the growing problems of landfills across the country waste can now be used to manufacture building materials. again near water god is there let me take you through our main stories this hour for us democratic congress women say they will not be silenced by president thought
5:31 am
they were responding to trump's comments that they are anti american and his call for them to go back home. mexico and guatemala have rejected new measures by the u.s. to try to stop more immigrants seeking asylum the new rules require migrants to apply a safe haven in other countries on the way to the u.s. . and the lower house of the u.s. congress has passed 2 bills in saudi arabia condemning human rights abuses and seeking accountability for the murder of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi but the measures could be challenged in the republican controlled senate. not iranian foreign minister job. the doors are open to negotiations if president donald trump lift sanctions on tehran service told the us media he does not believe washington is preparing for war i do not believe the president probably wants war but i believe there are people around him who would like and do you think they have a service where you worry that they have more sway than the i think president trump
5:32 am
has been on the record. that they are trying but i don't think they'll succeed because at the end of the day i think prudence will prevail people know that iran is a big proud country and we will not take a military attack likely well his comments come as he or peon foreign ministers called for dialogue between the u.s. and iran to try and save the 2015 nuclear deal the leaders held talks in brussels and then attempt to salvage the agreement which the e.u. foreign policy chief insists is still alive dominic kane has the details from brussels. for more than a year the e.u. has trying to preserve the nuclear agreement with iran devising schemes to help the government reduce the impact of u.s. sanctions but now that deal is in danger like never before we are looking to find a way to preserve the nuclear deal which we think is the best way of keeping the
5:33 am
middle east as a whole nuclear weapon free. iran is still a good year away from developing a nuclear weapon we think there are still some closing thoughts more window to keep the deal alive one of the brokers of the original deal known as the j c peer a is clear about what must happen next we want to see iran going back to full compliance and is that has been in this in these years. but we know it's that technically all the steps that have been taken and that we regret having taken a reversible so we hope and we invite you to reverse the steps and go back to full compliance with the agreements but how much sway do european voices have although the strength of feeling here in brussels is pretty clear no amount of words from the e.u. alone can compel the u.s. and iranian government's to negotiate with each other for that to happen there has to be a willingness on both sides to give ground and on that the view from the government
5:34 am
into is clear. when a big power that is a bully well then we have to stand up to it it must stop being a bully we have always believed in talks always right this hour right this moment if they stop the oppression they stop the belligerence if they lift sanctions return to the table return to logic we are ready so iran denounces the current u.s. administration while maintaining its commitment to the nuclear deal it negotiated with the previous one and yet iran is also operating outside the terms of that deal in some areas for several weeks iranian your anian enrichment has exceeded agreed limits. all of which has emboldened the trump administration with the us president recently warning officials in tehran they were treading on very dangerous territory which means that on the face of it this meeting on its own risks achieving little and over while iran is technically in breach of its commitments under the nuclear
5:35 am
agreement dominic a al-jazeera brussels. former south african president jacob zuma has told a public inquiry into corruption that enemies plotted against him he maintains he never broke the law with a good a wealthy indian family implicated in an influence peddling scandal. has the story from johannesburg. this doesn't happen often in africa a former leader appearing before a corruption inquiry more than a year after he was forced to resign so that because former president jacob zuma is responding to allegations he allowed people close to him to plunder state resources and influence government appointments he says he's a victim of a conspiracy i've been a subject of. talk in this country for . more than a decade. i've been vilified
5:36 am
alleged to. the killing of. corrupt people the most corrupt i've been. given every other may and that never. responded to. admits the doctors the businessmen at the center of an influence peddling scandal are friends but he and the group has say they did nothing wrong but many want him held to account for his suspected role in state corruption there's a much broader issue of corruption that isn't just around him and what was going on but the issue was that he was a man who was at the very top of governments who allowed himself to be captured by these elite interests. however not everyone believes he's guilty
5:37 am
jacob zuma is still believe. his friends are in top is that right is not only. congress and the. waters there's a lot of what. is politically motivated. believes enemies are trying to end any remaining influence he has 6 on a fishing expedition hope that somehow this is something that they could use like that's what is happening here if they're if they're real real evidence of any wrongdoing he would have been in court. or has been a divisive figure into that in politics for decades he seems defiant and he's threatening to name and shame people provoking him. al-jazeera. and staying in south africa where communities in the city of cape town say police have lost control of gang violence more than 900 people have been killed in violence linked
5:38 am
to gangs since the beginning of the year the government is preparing to deploy the army in an attempt to quell that violence for me the miller has the story for people living here the cape flats is a bore zone turf battles between feuding gangs means hundreds of lives lost every year many of them bystanders unable to escape the bullets. michael ware not using his real name belongs to a gang he says he can't survive outside it only vital to know police in a situation which we should picking through all of the stuff. you feel you have i've got a little ability i've got the skills but again i would do a reading in the bar would go out the room we need to go through stuff but i just used to you would you be looking at gangs make money by selling drugs the battle for territory means more customers and higher revenue 18 months ago the government
5:39 am
set up the anti gang unit whose work is to root out gangs guns and drugs it conducts daily raids searching the homes of known drug dealers and drug dens while the unit has made hundreds of arrests the city of cape town says there are nearly not enough officers now the army is being deployed to help curb the violence special operations like this haven't stopped gang violence on the cape flats according to government statistics the number of murders has increased this weekend alone 43 people were murdered more than half of them by gunshot people in this community who say there aren't enough police and they think the presence of the army will make things safer. many people here accuse the police of being ineffective and corrupt in 2016 a police officer in charge of disposing confiscated firearms was jailed for selling the guns worth half
5:40 am
a $1000000.00 to gangsters. this man who doesn't want to be identified and belongs to a gang 11 to hill says poor policing is common glinting the people you think the people that are only willing to put the lives are only adds to. the closer so you know it was with something in the in the only actual in what did would you drop the clues is what i'm going to think money they did get you now the kitchen i would worry she did go walking again while they may be from different gangs and often find themselves on the streets at. all the gang members we spoke to agree on one thing cindy in the army would only bring a temporary peace and that violence would likely return to the cape flats as soon as it withdraws from reader miller al-jazeera on the cape flats in cape town ok you can now get more on one of our top stories and that's a tightening of u.s. asylum rules jack kingston joins us live from washington d.c.
5:41 am
is a former republican congressman from georgia and he was a senior adviser to donald trump's 2016 presidential campaign to get you on the program thank you very much for joining us i 1st have to ask you what's your reaction to this attempt to tighten the rules on asylum seekers. i think the president just is looking for something that he can do to address this problem and current congress isn't given him many tools in the tool box you can't get anything passed congress right now and for fortunately when it comes to immigration and so what the president is trying to do is to stop the flow the busa of the asylum law really the asylum laws for people who are the and persecuted because of their religion or because of their roi people who are being specifically targeted aside almost do not cover economic problems and yet people come into american and
5:42 am
economic problems and colonic asylum to what the president is saying is if you go through a country like mexico where there are ways to file for her asylum that you bypass that come straight to the united states we're going to send you back right but house is going to work mexico has rejected this and guatemala has also blocked the move to make it a safe 3rd country. you know i think that we put more and more pressure on the best films you know best american or even straight partners are trying to do a big trade agreement with them right now they want it we want it i think there's waste of pressure on the government but it's going to get better cooperation and then there's an economic cooperation that we do in guatemala and honduras all over central america to get these countries where there are a lot that are not and will. somewhat walk right because it is a huge problem right now to the united states of america it's
5:43 am
a major crisis you need to know who's coming in your country how long they're going to stay and we're going to do very well with a rod. so the u.n.h.c.r. has expressed concern about this saying that you're putting migrants in danger meanwhile the american civil liberties union also says that the president has is unilaterally trying to reverse the country's legal and moral commitments to protect those in danger. they say they plan to sue what do you say to that. well there are going to soon because it's a little since this group and the american civil liberties union which sometimes the trial the anti-american civil liberties they make their money file in court cases and making everything outrageous but the reality is we've we've got a crisis on the border people are coming in they're smuggling drugs we don't know who's coming in it's not that they're just from guatemala or honduras or mess

they're from all over the world in many cases they are criminals and we need find out who all they are and try to get them out of our system so i mean every 3rd tree has the right for all its borders that's why countries have borders and yet there are many democrats in the united states congress who's for open borders and they even promise free healthcare if you sneak in here illegally and that is not the way to run a country again if you want to study instead of allowing a legal number and by the way america i think allows more legal immigration than any other country in the world might be wrong about that but it's about a 1000000 people a year who come here legally and become citizens if you want to change there and have the baby that there's 5000000 then the democrats in congress need to be working for them but the chaos not know what who's coming is is absurd it was already done you've already labeled them in your governor yard had the trump
