8:05 am
to collect. paints an overwhelming and damning picture of the president's efforts to use the powers of his office to corruptly solicit foreign help in his reelection campaign if this conduct is not impeachable. then nothing else i would rather go the long way from switzerland president trump again called his impeachment a partisan witch hunt he said he could live with having new witnesses testify in the trial so it's not up to the president whatever the heck he said it and it's troll wants to listen to a particular witness we have that cost attritional responsibility of the courts have yielded to us in order to carry out their responsibility republican senators has stuck by trump they include some of his fiercest offenders there on a crusade to destroy this man and they don't care what they destroy in the process of trying to this story donald trump i do care so to my democratic colleagues you
8:06 am
can say what you want about me but i am covering up nothing makes photos. your hatred of this president to the point that you would destroy the institution it would take 20 republican senators to cross the aisle to vote to convict and remove president trump from office the possibility is remote the much likelier scenario is an acquittal with the american voter serving as trump's final jurors in november at the polls show castro al-jazeera washington. president trump is back in washington after attending the world economic forum in davos in switzerland where he criticized the impeachment proceedings also boasted about withholding some evidence from the democratic white house correspondent kimberly how could us war. u.s. president donald trump returned home to washington ignoring reporters' questions about the ongoing senate impeachment trial against him but before leaving davos
8:07 am
switzerland trump in his 1st press conference as the start of the trial lashed out at his democratic adversaries calling them major sleaze bags that his mind set focused on his defense trumped told reporters he wanted to let members of his administration testify like former national security adviser john bolton secretary of state mike pump aoe and other top officials he even floated the possibility of showing up himself i'd love to go to the white you know i don't know i sort of love to write the front row and stare their corrupt faces i'd love to do it i don't know don't don't keep talking because i know you may convince me to do it trump seemed fixated on the trial back home even as the white house hoped trump would use the world economic forum to highlight accomplishments on trade he appeared confident now democrats are accusing him of openly admitting he's withholding documents one

of the main allegations against the jet but honestly we have all the material they don't have them and. tropp did discuss other topics including a future trade deal with the european union and confirmed he's expanding his controversial travel ban barring citizens of certain countries from entering the u.s. we're adding a couple of countries to it we have to be safe our country has to be safe trumps ban sparked protests in the u.s. when he introduced it less than a week after taking office. here. many called it a muslim ban for targeting muslim majority countries like iran and somalia and fought it in court 2018 the supreme court upheld the policy the white house promises countries can be removed from the travel ban list if they step up security but those headlines from trump's impromptu press conference were once again overshadowed at the impeachment trial on capitol hill mr justice one trunk believes
8:09 am
could shape his legacy when i finish i think that this is going to go down as one of the greatest things i've done for our country. despite allegations to the contrary trump insists he's committed no wrongdoing and efforts to remove him from office are an attempt to undo the results of the 2016 election and influence the next one can really help washington. a ban on all public transport to try and contain the spread of a deadly virus has gone into effect and the chinese city of will hong all plane train bus and ferry services in and out of the city it's all been shut down the number of confirmed cases across china has passed 577000 people have died since this virus emerged last month and cases have been detected in several countries in the u.s. also in several countries and asia partly also in the u.s. role in health organization will decide whether to declare the outbreak
8:10 am
a global health emergency later on thursday adrian brown is at hong kong airport where the transport shutdown will harm is already having an impact. normally you have several flights a day from here to hand and of course those flights have now being canceled rouhani is you know a city of about 11000000 people it's a major transport hub in central china but it's now a city that's in effective quarantine that the lockdown as you say began several minutes ago this is a lockdown that's being inforced by the police and it's one of the draconian measures that president xi jinping has felt necessary to take the idea the hope is they can somehow stop this virus from spreading still further but it's possible that this may be simply too little too late because the virus has now spread to 2 thirds of china's provinces that's $25.00 problem says in total that includes taiwan we've had another suspected case in macau this morning and of course now 2
8:11 am
suspected cases in hong kong and you know the world health organization has deferred making a final decision on whether to declare a global health emergency in part i think because he wants to hear more from china about why it perhaps feels that it is comfort enough of being able to contain this fire is and to prevent it spreading because you know if the w.h.o. does declare a global public health emergency then that's going to harm china's international reputation that's going to mean a big loss of face with china it's going to mean that this you know global emergency is down to a virus outbreak in china so i think china at this w.h.o. meeting is doing all that it can to convince members that it does have this thing under control. and playing is to water bomb the fires in australia it's fair to have crashed authorities lost contact with the c. one authority here craft in the snow i mean our. andrew thomas is live for us in

8:13 am
southeast of australia this plane and others they don't fire it's hard to take out on the ground to stop writing but this obvious they would be a major disaster in these bushfires that we haven't seen enough of those with a number of lives lost homes destroyed over the last month or so now we know that helicopters are looking for any wreckage there are ambulances driving to this betty remote area as well so far no confirmation of any wreckage and at the moment no confirmation of the exact plane and boat that's a site we believe it's a c. $130.00 normally a transport plane converted into a fighting plane we believe it's that one that's gone down ok and for thomas with the latest for us from sydney thank you and. still ahead on al-jazeera. here those are horses up the road that's why this was corrupt parliament was full of government. protests rejecting love it on state government descended to riots and street battles in the capital beirut. and man maher in the dock international
