newsroom." our top story, a diplomatic balt is brewing between turkey and the netherlands. they refused to let the turkish foreign minister's plane land for a rally. protests have broken out and turkey has sealed off dutch diplomatic reasons for what it calls security reasons. dutch police also blocked turkey's family affairs minister from entering the turkish consulate. >> reporter: the manager of this location has higher orders to ask you to leave holland today. >> we can escort. >> reporter: the team is here to escort you on the fastest route to germany by following the team in your own country. >> i will go to the consulate building. this is my consulate's building and i don't agree and i am not
12:02 am
leaving. >> she refuses that. she is a minister. she does not want to go to germany. >> then we'll just discuss. we'll discuss. it is possible there will then be other consequences. >> we have to make a call and other decisions could be made that might not be good for you. >> there is an example right there of the tension turkey's foreign minister is warning of a strong response to the netherland's actions. >> absolutely. it will not go unanswered and will have consequences the dutch government decides. so they canceled it due to security concerns, what? so is the turkey's minister a terrorist. of course, we will not target to netherland's people when we take steps. our target is the dutch government. this is not an attitude to me. this behavior is aimed at turkey's foreign minister.
12:03 am
>> let's talk about this right now with netherland's based freelance journalist, robert chessle. >> robert, let's back up and talk about the genesis of this. this protest in rotterdam, who was holding it and what was it to bb? >> what we discovered late last night is that it was orchestrated by the consul general of turkey in the netherlands at the rotterdam consulate. he and others were calling on turkish/dutch people to come to the consulate to hold a demonstration as a show of force. basically, this is an example of election time grandstanding, let's say, polling time grandstanding. turkey has a big referendum coming up next month that's going to give a lot more power to president erdogan. they are trying to get turkish
12:04 am
people campaigning and rallying to get them to vote to give erdogan more power. the netherlands is about to face a general election on wednesday. so prime minister could not possibly allow a huge, turkish campaign to take place. this is basically election-time grandstanding from both sides. >> the back and forth between turkey and the netherlands. >> it is unprecedented, unprecedented that a minister of a foreign country is detained and deported from the country. sme she is not even allowed tone ter her own country's territory. the consulate is the territory of turkey, even though it is
12:05 am
here in the netherlands. it is practically unprecedented for had thing to happen. it hasn't happened in the netherlands in any time in living memory. it is a bizarre situation. all of the protests are being orchestrated. that's certainly the case. >> where do you see this going from here? how might this simmer down? >> i don't think it is going to. erdogan, the turkish leader's whole point is to show his people, the turkish people that he has power, power enough to influence affairs all the way over there in europe. he is making use of this for his referendum campaign showing that europe is against turkey. turkey, he would like to position it as a democratic country even though we know there are very big problems with the furk ish democracy and the sweep and aret of lots of people in academia and pe is making
12:06 am
full use to position europe as an enemy of turkey to gain as much possible support for his referendum for more political power. >> a story we will continue to watch as it unfolds. robert chessle there. thank you so much. we'll talk with you again for sure. to u.s. politics, a federal prosecutor who thought his job was safe in the trump administration was suddenly fired saturday after getting into a showdown with the white house. p he was u.s. torn for southern manhattan, famous for taking on drug lords and crooked bankers. they explains how the sheriff of wall street, as he is called, lost his badge. >> after a stunning standoff with the white house, the u.s. attorney in manhattan, farid farara is out. we are learn whag he was told and by whom.
12:07 am
the president did not call him. the acting deputy attorney, dana bente called him and asked if it was true he was refusing to re-sign. she said, if that's true, the president says you are fired. the question is, what exactly has changed since november when he said he was told he could stay on and continue through trump's presidency. that is the real question. what's changed since november? the white house is not saying much and referred us to the justice department. the justice department is also not saying anything other than that berarra has been asked to step aside. what will we see in these coming days about why we have seen a difference from november until now. back to you. >> the trump white house is trying hard not to get bogged down with the controversy over
12:08 am
the sacking of these u.s. attorneys and is instead focusing on trying to get rid of obama care. u.s. vice-president, mike pence, was urging republicans to back the plan now before congress. he traveled to louisville, kentucky, and posed a direct challenge to republican sceptics like rand paul without mentioning the senator by name. >> folks are let me be clear. this is going to be a battle in washington, d.c. for us to seize this opportunity to repeal and replace obamacare once and for all, we need every republican in congress and we are counting on kentucky. at the end of the day, after a good and vigorous debate, we know kentucky will be there and we will repeal and replace obamacare, once and for all. >> let's talk about the goings-on from the trump administration with a frequent guest, scott lucas, professor of
12:09 am
international politics at the university of birmingham in england. how are you? >> doing well glchlt is ni. >> nice to see you. the big headline brought the trump administration firing dozens of u.s. attorneys. the story we just brought of preet bharara, who kind of forced trump to fire him. is this really any big deal sm. >> on the surface, there have been other administrations when they come into office for the resignations of u.s. attorneys. they do so in a very well-ordered process so you can replace those attorneys and not leave a giant vacancy. as has been common with the trump administration, it acted suddenly in this case. all of the sudden, it just told 46 u.s. attorneys, all of whom are from the obama era, that's it, you are out. bharara was getting the
12:10 am
headlines because he refused to go. there is a wire context. the trump administration has been in a running battle with the judiciary and with the staff of the justice department since it took office. you may remember in january, that trump dismissed the acting attorney general, sally yates, when she raised the issue of national security adviser, michael flynn's links with russia. you had the fair with the judges dismissing the muslim ban and saying we can't let, so-called judges to pursue this. the justice department saying, wait a minute, you have to act within the law. significantly, attorney general, jeff sessions, the head of the justice department, is under fire for his russian links and apparently, there is a big divide between him and justice department staff. so bharara is that there is wear going on between trump and the p
12:11 am
judiciary. we just saw mike pence saying, you have to rally behind this health care plan p. we need everyone on board. will they get it? >> right now, they are looking like they don't have many troops to go into battle. the trump administration is under fire for two sides, doctors, nurses, the chief medical officer for medicare, major hospitals o wwho are sayi they don't like this. they are joined by economists who say this will give $157 billion windfall to the richest while not ensuring coverage for the poor. there are those that say, this doesn't go hard enough who say this is obamacare like. rand paul is part of that second group. it is more important that there are a lot of people within the first group who aren't going to be breitbart news. it is going to be a lot of
12:12 am
professionals and congress tends to listen to those people bh it comes to a vote. >> the other part of this story, a lot of republican leaders, representatives, have been getting pushback from their constituents who have been in their face, frayed afraid of lo obamacare and what will be right there to replace it as well. that's another big part of this story. >> you are absolutely right. once you get beyond the headline of obamacare must be repealed, people are saying a couple of things. look, you are looking to restrict the expansion of medicare. as i get older, am i going to be covered? two, more than 20 million people were able to get insurance or added to the roles because of obamacare. there is well-justified skepticism that the republican
12:13 am
plan does not meet the challenge on either of those points. >> this is a major story right now. so many people have a lot at stake, not just in the health care industry but the people receiving health insurance right now. a big, big deal for president trump to see this. we will wait and see what happens. we appreciate your joining us. thank you. >> how about this one? an arraignment is set for monday for a man found outside the white house late friday while president trump was inside. the secret service says 26-year-old jonathan tran was carrying a laptop, a book by mr. trump, two cans of mace and a l letter claiming information about russian hacking. they found him outside the entrance of the bhwhite house a he told them he jumped the fence. it is the first known intrusion since mr. trump took office. north korea is react tog the

12:21 am
what about the call ochs of her be prosecuted, where does she go from here and who knows? >> all of this is kind of quite speculation but it is likely that there could be prosecution and a further investigation of the corruption allegations and the scandal that brought her down in the first place. unlike in the past where she refused to testify argue ning t her post of president and responsibilities protected her from that. she is now stripped of those protections so presumably could be forced to answer in person to the charges against her. those are some of the measures that she could face in the future. meanwhile, the country will have to prepare for elections for a new president. that is expected to take place within 60 days. one date that has been floated is possibly may 9th.

12:25 am
president. >> reporter: it is a concerned being echoed by bruce blair, former nuclear missile launch officer who recorded this anti-trump ad. he said he is speaking not as a partisan but as a scholar. his kerp, not just kim jong-un but president trump. this person is erratic, impulsive, aggressive, ill-informed. he is the soul authority who can decide whether or not to launch thousands of nuclear weapons in minutes with a single phone call. i don't have confidence in his judgment. i live in fear that he would make a bad call and that that call could be civilization ending. >> trump supporters like carl hig by saying, despite his fiery rhetoric, the president understands the power. >> launching a nuclear weapon is far different than launching a tweet. >> the world is a safer place if
12:26 am
our enemies believe there is a chance that we may use nuclear power. >> president trump in an interview with reuters says that he does dream of a world where nuclear weapons don't exist. but as long as they do, he wants the united states to be at the top of the pack. his critics counter that that simply doesn't make the world safer, kyung lah, cnn, los angeles. syrian president is questioning why russian troops are in syria. he does not think that american forces will help in the battle against isis. he added that the americans have, in his words, lost nearly every war and only end up creating a mess wherever they have been. u.s. officials say u.s. marines are currently in northern syria to back up local forces there who are preparing for an assault on the isis-held city of raka.

trump's inauguration, all of which earned them scorn from fellow muslims. >> i had to receive comments like, i never knew you were a racist. you are anti-islamic, a trader, trying to be white, brownie, all these slurs. trump's campaign rhetoric particularly about muslims bothered many people, including salim sheikh. he is friends with rasheed and a life-long republican who voted for hillary clinton. >> i was quite concerned about some of mr. trump's statements at that time. >> total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. >> reporter: how could you support a man who seemed to be so anti-muslim? >> when the statement about the muslim ban came out, i was kind of offended to be very honest but then i took a deep breath
12:34 am
and i looked at the message behind the statement. >> reporter: the message rasheed and khan heard wasn't of discrimination. instead, they heard trump identifying a problem they see in their own faith, one american leaders and many muslims up until now haven't openly faced, violent radical extremist. >> the main war is within islam, not outside. the first war we have to win is the war that the reformers or the modern muslim vs. to win against the radicals. >> reporter: terrorism he says is a byproduct of that war and trump is taking actions against some muslims to protect all americans. still, they admit, the first travel ban was a mistake. >> i athink that was too much. i did not agree with him in the beginning? >> reporter: you think it is better now? >> it is a little better now. his message is not hating all the muslims. he is just trying to protect this country as a president. that's his job.
