10:07 pm
a tweet from another minister who is a muslim made it clear the president had hit a raw nerve. donald trump has upset a lot of people here in westminster in fearing he still invited to london on a state visit that would involve the queen in practice it's very hard to see that visit happening any time soon the president has provided a huge public steve to a fringe far right movement britain first which has never come close to success in any form of election here in the u.k. . britain first wants to end immigration and ban islam in the u.k. anti-fascist groups believe it has about one thousand members. its deputy leader franson whose tweets were retreated by the president is facing charges of using threatening and abusive language she's thanked the president for retreating her messages to his more than forty three million followers saying god bless you trump

god bless america barnaby phillips al-jazeera westminster. well let's get more of this from our white house correspondent kimberly how can so as we're hearing there the president's retreats have drawn real rebuke from politicians here in britain what more is the white house had to say well the silence is deafening in terms of what the white house has been saying for seems to be a resignation in the troubled ministration there's very little it can do to take the president on social media but i can tell you this is continuing to dominate the headlines here in the united states particularly on the cable news networks what we're hearing is constantly this questioning of whether or not the president and this would be an example of whether or not he is a radical in his behavior to the degree that there is a question about his fitness for office this is being reiterated by
10:09 pm
a very prominent democratic congressman who is pressing for an impeachment call on the floor of the house of representatives next week but at the same time to there are those who still stand firmly behind the president particularly when it comes to conservative websites and those conservative writers and right leaning newspapers who believe that this is a legitimate issue and are certainly back away in the president's sentiments that we saw late on wednesday when they in fact the president said all social media directing to theresa may that the focus should not be him but what many in the united states on the conservative side believe is a legitimate security threat inside the united kingdom now another key development emerging your and continuing reports that could be a big change at the helm all of the state department what are you hearing about the prospect of secretary of state rex tillerson being replaced. well certainly the rumors are getting ever louder in terms of the mumblings within the media and in
10:10 pm
washington circles this is one that has been circulating for some time the very strained relationship between the white house and the president and of course his top diplomat rex tillerson it got so loud over the summer of course particularly when there was reporting that rex tillerson had in fact called the president a moron he held a press conference to say no our relationship is very strong but he never denied the name calling and of course there have been key policy differences between the two particularly on the iran nuclear agreement also as well on north korea now we are hearing reporting that in fact there is a plan in place to replace the rex tillerson the secretary of state by the end of the year with the current cia director mike pompei oh but i can tell you when the president was asked very directly about this in the oval office he would only say very vaguely he's here rex's here and that has been echoed by sarah huckabee sanders the white house press secretary who says in fact there will be no personnel changes at this time but of course there are going to be
10:11 pm
a lot of questions about all of these stories the white house briefing is coming up in the next hour or so and so of course we will try to press her for further clarification thank you very much will be a stink that very closely can really help it at the white house. a tuck issue rein in gold trader who's pleaded guilty to money laundering and helping iran of a u.s. sanctions has told a new york court that turkey's president. it was prime minister at that time approved the transaction christians to me is following developments for us in new york what are we been learning about potential role in this. well some very interesting details coming out in the courthouse today let me start by backing up a little bit and explaining that reza zurab this turkish iranian gold trader is testifying against a turkish banker here in the southern district of manhattan there are two of nine
10:12 pm
people that the u.s. government claims were involved in this scheme to launder iranian money and violate iranian sanctions now as a rod was the lead defendant in this case he has since pled guilty to this conspiracy and is now testifying against the bank guard and on the stand he has said some things that are getting the attention of the turkish government to say the least in fact there outrage in the turkish government on wednesday he testified that he paid the former economy minister of turkey half of his profits in bribes in order to make this scheme go forward bribes totaling forty to fifty billion euro sorry forty to fifty million euro millions of dollars more and millions of turkish lira on top of that and today he said in court that this scheme was authorized by then prime minister recip tayyab era one now president of turkey
10:13 pm
so he is explaining on the stand basically how this scheme work that he was providing golden fake food purchases as a way for iran to spend its oil money abroad in violation of these sanctions any country basically the. added states forbids anyone from doing business with iran and using their banks and this was a scheme that he alleges he that he claims was orchestrated with the knowledge basically of the highest levels of the turkish government. well the president has complained bitterly about the fact that this trial is even taking place how might it impact relations between washington and ankara. well that's true the president has said that turkey has not violated the sanctions but it does have legitimate trade and energy ties with iran the deputy prime minister of turkey has attacked
10:14 pm
united states officials saying that this is a political witch hunt attempt to undermine the credibility of turkey and the president they've gone so far as to accuse the judge and prosecutor in this case of being supporters of the islamic cleric who's been exiled from turkey and blamed for mistreating a coup attempt against and won in two last year so clearly by the way the prosecutor has called those claims ridiculous they have denied that they have any connections to go and that are behind this trial but clearly this is making for very tense relations between the united states and turkey. all right well thank you very much christensen amy with all the latest on that case from new york has more to tell you about on the program but from just calls for decisive measures to help rangel refugees but stop short of calling them by then name bolivia's president says it was all position from washington that convinced him to run for.

10:24 pm
pope notes to use the word religious early during his four day visit to myanmar came from advice from the vatican over concerns for the christian community inside me and my concerns of the potential backlash against them but certainly here on the first day of his visit to bangladesh it seems as if he is trying to avoid the politics as much as he can while the same time trying to draw attention to the plight of what is now around one point two million range of refugees sheltering in this country. that prosecutors have confirmed via buzzin krout will criminal down in court on wednesday was a lethal chemical sub and probably at died in hospital on tripping at the will crimes tribunal for the for me the at the hague and the bomber appoints. in bosnia's ethnically divided town of most star some people were in mourning on
