international. donald trump has dismissed his chief of staff reince priebus in the late to shake up of his white house team as usual the president broke the news on twitter and now saying that homeland security secretary john kerry now have the job a week ago the white house press secretary sean spicer also abruptly left his position that had been widely expected as he had not been appearing at briefings for some time however the dismissal of the f.b.i. director james comey back in may did come as a shock one of the reasons trump gave for that decision was the intelligence chief handling of the probe into helen clinton's use of private e-mail server while secretary of state and before that national security advisor michael flynn was forced to resign over his contacts with russia jacqueline bouvier looks now at how relationships in the white house are starting to resemble a notable t.v. drama. between senate investigations and twitter wars the current us presidency has
barely gotten the ball rolling but there has been plenty of drama we are strongest when we're unified. this is a bunch of scumbags. president was being small president it's not presidential at all. for this country. mr speaker to call for the impeachment of the president boy have they tried i mean every single thing. when i'm finished i think they will absolutely. lately the bipartisan tug of war has shifted to being on the lines of the enemy of my enemy is my friend take attorney general jeff sessions not long ago he was considered one of trump's most trusted allies whereas democrats were less than impressed he's a man of integrity a man of principle and a man of total utter resolved because the department of justice should be above
reproach for the good of the country attorney general sessions should resign in just a couple of months trump's love for sessions has turned sour and lo and behold under chuck schumer suddenly coming to his defense i am disappointed in the attorney general. he should not have recused himself even if the president has disagreements with him which i think are real found self centered. and wrong you don't ridicule him in public apparently there's a thin line between love and hate and that lying is basically just a few mean tweet and it works the opposite way as well let's look at former f.b.i. director james comey when he spoke out on the hillary clinton investigation praised his valor while the democrats were far from fleet it took guts for director comey to make the move that he made it light of the kind of opposition he had. the f.b.i.
director has no credibility oh how the times have changed since he's a showboat he's a grandstander the f.b.i. has been in turmoil you know that i know that the reason that tony was fired was because donald trump wants to cut off any investigation and it's not just politicians who are easily swayed the media follows the changing tide as well george w. bush was slammed by the press and seen as one of the worst american presidents toward the end of his time in office he leaves office the most unpopular president in modern history this president performed so poorly we have a president to transcend at least stupid he is the worst president of my lifetime but a few well aimed comments in an interview turned him into a white house favorite i consider the media media to be indispensable to democracy we need an independent media to hold people like me to account it's very funny to
the sense of humor is coming well he said oh well respected mr president we want to thank you. even former white house press secretary sean spicer who was one of the media's favorite punching bags for some time is now feeling the love following his resignation rumor has it he may even become a reality t.v. star the political positions are breathtakingly incoherent their scripts are frantic with all due apologies to schizophrenia what is trump saying we were against it it's like that groucho marx songs is whatever you're for i'm against it it just depends because this isn't about platform he said about conviction it's not about ideology it's about personality we have two parties in this country. and. so it seems the rule of thumb in washington these days is to keep your enemies post and your friend in me is even closer at least until it's more beneficial to turn on . party washington d.c. . the french president has unveiled an ambitious plan to rid the country of its
makeshift migrant camps and better a coma. they refugees by the end of the year the premium but the first battle is to house everybody in a dignified manner by the end of the year i want no more women and men in the streets in the woods last it's a question of dignity a question of humanity but also the fish and see everywhere where the emergency housing is built to welcome them i want administrative steps for their cases to be examined last year french police dismantled the country's most notorious refugee camp the so-called jungle in cali but human rights watch says more than four hundred people are still there living out in the open about half of them are unaccompanied children the area is used as a launching point for crossing to the u.k. .
one. as the refugees returned to color a human rights watch has accused police of abusing migrants on a routine basis the rights group says the situation is quite like living in hell pepper spray is apparently used on migrants even when they pose no threat police are also accused of confiscating sleeping bags and clothing from the migrants while disrupting access to humanitarian aid. the place admit they're struggling to cope while the migrants say they feel abandoned by the authorities to spend my six month intelligence came and this is to all the people you'll stay in france will give you fair farm. work you had to build your life then separately in the process enough to know you're in the seas. for us. we have
about six hundred migrants here now and we're expecting more there's a zero tolerance policy towards the settling of migrants and the reconstruction of the jungle with the mission of the police is clear that migrants must be prevented from sleeping in certain areas and from forming groups there's more and more tension including between the migrants themselves we also have difficulties with the far left which choice to promote a world without borders and without police they are particularly nervous about the actions of the police they try to film in attackers that creates tensions now that we have more work to do we've asked for reinforcements and it receive them from the interior ministry our job is not at all easy it is difficult to stop migrants from gathering in certain places. meanwhile reports of dire conditions are also coming from a migrant camp in northeast france. bensky their. alcohol violence and reports of rape that's the reality in this migrant camp that's being dubbed
a humanitarian slaughter the problem down there is a problem with alcohol and violence even as a major were cafes problems they don't have food but they manage to get hold of alcohol we don't know how to handle the situation there is not enough security over the number of people here in the camp has been dismantled several times but every time it's taken down a new people come in the camp is reformed locals formats are concerned about its impact. this problem has to be addressed quickly for their sake as well as for us there suffer in. the city of metz was not prepared for the count therefore it is empty but now there are seven hundred refugees back there again it's becoming a second kaleri we return to the camp after dark on route our taxi driver tells us
about some of the problems. there are a lot of home break ins a lot of aggression they snatch women's handbags but no one talks about balance heavey the migrants are everywhere in metz. at the camp we find out my current apparently facing aggression as well from a certain community within the camp. not. really. the problems why. do you fight yes they take your money. as we speak with another man we're told to stop filming by security guards the people here are hiding from those who are looking for them in their own country. if you show their faces on t.v. you're putting their lives driskell we don't want journalists here. despite the worsening conditions and other issues both in and out of the camp more people continue to arrive. in ski r.t.
metz. the suspect in friday's stabbing rampage in hamburg is a known islamist according to german police the attack left one person dead and six others injured peter all of a has been following the developments well as we find out more information about what unfolded on friday evening in hamburg we've heard from the interior minister of that city state he's described the assailant he's in custody as a known islamised. the suspect was known to authorities there are indications of radicalization as for the motive there is a reference to religious motivations on the one hand islamic motives but on the other hand there are also signs of psychological instability. we do know though is exactly what he did he went into this store he took a kitchen knife from one of the displays in the supermarket opened it from its
packaging and then attacked people who were there that attack led to a fifty year old man suffering injuries from which he died while i was drinking god when i saw a young man approaching the area he pushed one person off a bike and then stabbed another one near a car and then stopped three more people he was shouting allahu akbar and brandishing a knife and after that he tried to run away the fact that this suspect was known to police was known to authorities as having connections to radical islamic groups is certainly going to raise questions if we cast our minds back to the end of last year and the horrific terrorist attack that took place in berlin whereby a truck was driven into a christmas market that the perpetrator was also known to police as well so questions are going to be raised over just what it means to be on one of these watch lists what we do know that the main suspect the person that was arrested at
the scene is a failed asylum applicant which is in turn turning questions again towards angle of merkel's policy when it comes to refugees and migrants and seeing many people criticizing her government again for that policy. the u.s. secretary of state has explained the thinking behind the latest sanctions bill against russia after the white house said president trump is ready to approve the legislation the near unanimous votes for the sanctions legislation in congress represent the strong will of the american people to see russia take steps to improve relations with the united states we hope that there will be cooperation between our two countries on major global issues and these sanctions will no longer be necessary. russia hit back with counter measures on friday the foreign ministry told the united states to cut the number of diplomatic staff in the country by the first of september moscow also said it would seize two u.s.
diplomatic properties that includes a warehouse in the south of moscow with an area of more than two thousand square meters u.s. diplomats will also be stopped from using their riverside retreats located in one of the capital's parks it was used by staff members for leisure and barbecue get togethers. meanwhile the russian embassy in the u.s. is puzzled by secretary tillotson statement on the sanctions it says the washington has failed to realize that pressure isn't working in relations with moscow former british diplomat craig murray thinks it's a bizarre attempt at sending a positive message it's not the most logical thing to say we want to improve the lives of those therefore we are imposing signs of to be thirty two to listen he's slightly less crazy than many of the people involved in american politics at the senior level but it's not a very high bar with you slightly less crazy and i think he his statement was trying to be diplomatic and lessen the impact and be less insulting to russia than
the he might otherwise have been i think that's why you have that part of it logical statement explaining these sanctions to which was not really any sensible justification at all riots have broken out in east london that story and more still to come. in case you're new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around . corporations run washington washington media the media folks voters elected to businessman to run this country business if.
you must but it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. seemed wrong why don't we all just all. get to shape out. comes to the ticket and engage in it because betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart when we choose to look for common ground . welcome back the streets of london have been hit by an arrest over police brutality . crowds gathered on friday night to demand justice for sharon chiles
a black civilian who died after being arrested in a store a week ago a video of that instance in which an officer can be seen pinning the man to the ground in a tight headlock has caused widespread outrage an independent commission is investigating the case and staying with news from the u.k. prime minister to resign may has lost yet another of her top breaks is strategists she was also recently voted britain's most unpopular leader ever at this stage of a premiership nonetheless despite the turmoil at home she's enjoying a three week long break in europe and the media has been rife with speculation of a plot to replace her polly boyko takes up the story. the prime minister was meant to be getting away from it all but back in london yet another member of her senior team has gotten away from her downing street now former director of strategy chris wilkens has quit this follows four of the resignations of may's closest aides
the prime minister has now been abandoned by the very people that helped set out a vision for brags that the choice is becoming ever more clear. with our eyes fixed on the future strong and stable leadership with me as prime minister to see as through brics it and beyond or a coalition of chaos but with the plans architects no longer in the picture to reason may is short of a devises at a time when she needs the most critically wounded prime minister she either disastrous election campaign an election campaign that she won since a twenty four percent or has and then losing his resignation chris wilker is just no good example of part of the disastrous to run though since the election rolling off the ship like rats i think the. government or the wounded prime minister britain has less than two years to negotiate bragg's it on its current course but brussels is still waiting for clarification of the u.k.
stance on key issues and to resume a struggles don't tend with brags that the scandal over the grenfell fire disaster rages on london's metropolitan police have now announced that local authorities are under suspicion of corporate manslaughter meanwhile to resume a has admitted the party has been wrong on gay rights in the pasta with may now being urged to compensate tens of thousands of men who had been convicted in the u.k. under anti-gay laws decades ago to reason may is now the most unpopular british leader one month after a j. admiral election opposition leader gerry corbin's fortunes have gone the of the way his popularity is now soaring but despite talk of cabinet with and disagreements publicly to resume a senior ministers a putting up a united front at least for now she goes into the election and we didn't get the
majority she wanted but she won the most seats she won the most votes i think she will last they see no need for any more political coup for for what the british people want to see is a government that gets on with the job and they've got that with treason but in a sign that the party could be seeking to disassociate itself from its beleaguered leader to resign may's picture was removed from the conservative website although with the next two years expected to be dominated by tough talks with brussels perhaps the only thing keeping to resume a in the job is that no one else want to set. r.t. in london. and intense battle has been raging between armed groups in lebanon and the country's border with syria is alie is there r.t. the operation to free our soul which is the mountainous region of eastern lebanon from the control of terrorists was concluded just
a few days ago and the operation was conducted by hezbollah the lebanese resistance group in coordination with the lebanese army who took a back seat to that operation that's operation which wasn't without some controversy the lebanese prime minister saad hariri described the operation as illegitimate leading critics to say that he was sheltering terrorist groups and that a terrorist group with links to al qaeda we also managed to speak to some hezbollah commanders and they told us that they managed to kill around one thousand militants and take a hundred. it's a squirt of territory as the militants as they said were exhausted after months if not years this is why it's not in the region in the bottom of the line this is the word. this is the last day of. the dugouts except that. the holy city of june of two thousand and seven is of of the deal that
was needed. between forty eight hours to seventy two hours now what remains to be seen is whether this victory will be permanent or whether the terrorists will come but what we heard today though that many of them are joining the so-called islamic states and getting ready for yet another battle. the u.s. led coalition is urging iraq to investigate claims of war crimes committed by its military there have been consistent reporting of allegedly of armed conflict violations recently any violation of the law of armed conflict is unacceptable and should be an investigation in a transparent parent manner we meet routinely with our partner forces to advise them on the expectations for throwing transparent investigation and accountability for anyone found responsible for abuses in public disclosure of findings and
actions taken. earlier human rights watch made some detail delegations against an iraqi unit the report says suspected members of islamic state were executed without trial during the liberation of mosul a number were found beheaded with children among those killed some observers say the iraqi army used bulldozers to bury the bodies under rubble we put these allegations to a member of the baghdad region security committee we should warn you some of the images you're about to see a disturbing. problem is that we are speaking of a close knit society people know each other city is a large city but those who were and role devices are very well known within the city the people who were prosecuted by isis now are leading the sixteen division and basically they see it as a payback time the sixteen division was formed by the united states trained by the
united states and controlled by the united states so definitely if there is any human rights violation. it's very obvious that those who controlled or formed this division must understand all must pay some type of at least moral responsibility because i mean nobody here sympathizes with isis supporters or isis of numbers so but from a legal point of view yes this is an issue that needs to be looked at. in other news this is a sketch of the manhattan skyline by one donald j. trump has been sold at auction for twenty nine thousand dollars and the american president is not the first world leader to show off his artistic skills. we proudly welcome you to a gallery of some of the most extraordinary are pieces ever produced here you can
