6:08 am
more pictures of colors pushed the more in germany whether he's remodeled in custody or given bail that'll be a crucial factor to in and how much anger will be shown here on the streets of barcelona but it is expected a general strike could be called this is really invigorated the protest movement here and i think we'll see it by the sheer number of people coming out on the streets of barcelona. and adult film star who alleges he had an affair with the u.s. president donald trump in two thousand and six says she was threatened with violence after she first tried to go public with the story so me daniels whose real name is stephanie clifford told c.b.s. is sixty minutes she was accosted by an unidentified man in las vegas in twenty eleven and told to leave tried. she alleged the alleged threats came weeks after
6:09 am
she took three to sell details over her affair to a magazine in the interview she refused to discuss whether she has evidence of her affair with. from washington d.c. . stormy daniels told the television news program sixty minutes that she had one sexual encounter with president trump a little more than a decade ago when he was hosting the television show the apprentice and she said during that encounter he promised her a spot on the apprentice but that failed to materialize when she turned him down for a second sexual encounter a few years after that in two thousand and eleven she says she was approached by a magazine to sell her story for fifteen thousand dollars but she said she never received the money and that article never appeared because trump threatened to sue the magazine she said shortly after that she was approached in a parking lot and was threatened by a man i was in a parking lot going to

a fitness class with my infant daughter just taking in the seats facing backwards in the back seat diaper bag. getting all the stuff out and a guy walked up on me and said to me leave champ alone forget the story and then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said it's a beautiful little girl and be ashamed of something how much her mom and then he was gone now during the presidential campaign daniels claims that she was offered significant sums from various media outlets to tell her story but she said she instead decided to accept one hundred thirty thousand dollars from the president's attorney i turned down a large payday multiple times because one i didn't want to kiss and tell and be labeled all the things that i'm being labeled now i don't want to take away from the legitimate and legal i'd like to point out career that i've worked very hard to establish and most importantly i did not want my family and my child exposed to all
6:11 am
the things that she's being exposed to right now because everything that i was afraid of coming out has come out anyway and guess what i don't have a million dollars now just in the past week two other women have filed suits against president trump and these are suits that could be prolonged and continued to be a distraction for months if not years joe watkins is a republican political strategist and a former aide to president george h.w. bush and he says the allegations will have little influence on donald trump supposes. interestingly it should but it doesn't even the evangelicals in the united states have given him a pass on these allegations from other accusers and as far as his base is concerned these are just allegations meant to the real him from his primary agenda so with his base i don't think he suffers at all i think he does just fine with his base of
6:12 am
course it he takes a moral hit from the standpoint of how he looks in america and how he looks at the international community but from the standpoint of hurting his base hurting him with his base or impacting the election in two thousand and twenty i don't think this impacts the election in twenty twenty in any kind of a big way is very different than any other political candidate we've had the past because we know that in the past any one incident like this would derail the candidacy of course of gary hart ran for president one hundred eighty was running in one thousand nine hundred seventy for the one thousand eight nomination for president and he was the railed by the allegation that he had a mistress and we know certainly the president clinton had troubles in the one nine hundred ninety s. and other politicians as well have been hurt badly in some cases of their careers have ended because of these kinds of allegations but not so with donald trump that has really affected them from that standpoint so i don't suppose that it's going to affect him seriously going forward unless the special prosecutor decides to to use mr cohen's. background as some kind of leverage. still to come

expected to return president after fattah el-sisi to power and the vote comes seven years after the revolution that ended the thirty year long presidency of hosni mubarak jamal looks at some of the promises he has struggled to keep during his time as president. although opted for to his use he was only named president in june two thousand and fourteen the former army general has. in control of egypt since july the previous year when he led a coup deposing the country's first democratically elected presidents mohamed morsi since taking power sisi has made numerous promises and pledges to the egyptian people in a bid to win their support first he vowed to defeat what he described as potential violence and terrorism in the digital fleet i call in all egyptians to take to the streets to task me with preventing the potential violence and terrorism that threatens us. in reality however since sisi became president attacks and bombings
6:18 am
appear to have increased dramatically across the country i saw which did not have a branch in egypt recruited fighters and began killing soldiers and police officers in sinai but the violence was not limited to the peninsula car bombs in central cairo and alexandria are testament to cc's inability to deliver on his promise of security another pledge made by the army general was to build a national road network that would connect cities and help improve road safety i think i will build a world class road network within one year that will connect all of egypt for years have now passed not only does egypt have an extremely poor road network according to the world health organization it ranks amongst the ten worst countries for road safety with deaths being an almost daily occurrence. c.c. had also promised to drastically improve the economy and increase living standards there was initial hope when his government organized the two thousand and fifteen
6:19 am
international economic conference billions of dollars worth of projects were announced until now though very little of those have been achieved even the much hill construction of a new administrative capital has seen little to no development similar to the pledge of building one million new homes with hundreds of thousands of egyptians still either homeless or living in slums one promise that was fulfilled by c.c. was the expansion of the suez canal however the promised revenue from this project has not materialized in fact after convincing the public to help fund the project through investment bonds the government's own figures show revenue from the suez canal has actually dropped as a result of the decline in maritime traffic says he has been president for four years and in power for five in the early days he had promised to transform egypt into a world power the reality is that he presides over a country where thirty percent live below the poverty line and the vast majority

are struggling to remain just above it his critics doubts that another four years will bring any significant improvement. al-jazeera. the egyptian government has also been cracking down on the media in the run up to this election hundreds of websites and blogs have been blocked buses and chapelle reports that hasn't stopped the online conversation. it appears more egyptians have been busy discussing football and the arabic version of the t.v. program the voice then the presidential elections on monday but security certainly became a trending topic over the weekend after an attack on egypt's second city alexandria on saturday now at least two people were killed including a policeman in what the ministry of interior has called an assassination attempt of a local security official prime minister sharif ismail says such attacks will not affect the election process but security is high across egypt's major cities and
6:21 am
more than thirteen thousand polling places and it remains a central issue in this campaign many twitter users outside of egypt are talking about the same thing with me sharing some critical pieces from the economist in the new york times which focused on the security dimensions of the election and the new york times asking why president sisi appears to be worried if the election is supposed to be a lock now the president has adopted a more threatening tone in the final month of campaigning focusing on unspecified enemies while the economist says that sisi must provide security and jobs for young people if not there's a recipe for more upheaval down the road and while they like many of c.c. supporters say that his firm hand has prevented egypt from collapsing in recent years they say he should respect the constitution and ignore his most sycophantic supporters who want to amend the constitution to let him rule for life and then you can you tell them to say we did give me a loser you must do it and while a number of famous actors and singers have helped spread cc's message to nearly
6:22 am
sixty million eligible voters to come down and participate many egyptians are wondering if their vote will even matter the hash tag why are you boycotting the elections was trending on the eve of the vote after seven political parties and one hundred fifty opposition figures denounced the process as a farce calling for a boycott one of the most popular posts from the former sisi supporters. compares this choice whether to boycott or not to a. football match he says if the results are known in advance and the referee is bribed the fans would certainly boycott the match so we'll have to see if these security issues and the perceived lack of choice will have an impact on voter turnout remember that the last time sisi ran nearly half of eligible voters did turn out giving him nearly ninety seven percent of the vote right now we can speak to. is associate professor of middle eastern politics at the university of oklahoma he's joining us by skype from the city of newman thanks for talking to. the
6:23 am
credibility of this election is being widely questioned isn't it how come the only one challenge has emerged from this enormous arab country. well i think the regime clearly handball the election engineering this election it's not really an election as you say i think in an ideal world there would have been more candidates but candidates that were not threatening to president sisi some of those who emerged were in deep threatening such as former general sami i-man and homages free who had run in the two thousand and twelve election and so they were eliminated you know either in different ways either intimidated to withdraw or were arrested and in some cases and so then they were last with no one and so this individual who some stuff from was so who no one really had heard of the leader of that party who we believe to be in cahoots with the security forces and so on was
6:24 am
put up so that it could be an election with two candidates or at least look like an election so that's how we got here and i think it does really reflect the regimes anxiety about political contest station they don't want any political contest station but nevertheless they want to go through the motions of an election and in an election to it let's call it an election commit say that in a situation like this as we've already seen in russia what is at salute a vital intensive establish some form of the dismisses ten out. well that's correct and even the russian election if we can call it back had many different candidates even though it was an unfair playing field in this case we don't have that and so yes in the two thousand and fourteen election the official results reported a forty seven percent election turnout but of course the rational thing to do as you were piece mentioned if one is an egyptian voter when the conclusion is known
6:25 am
ahead of time is to not participate and so we'll all be looking at both the official and the unofficial results i'm highly skeptical that anything approaching the previous result forty seven percent will be achieved in the next three days and may not what has happened law generally to the political space we've had about the crazing down to the media and the restrictions to various online presences i wonder what about the muslim brotherhood the brotherhood what's happened to the party of mr morsi yes it's been shattered really by the regime i mean as you know there are tens of thousands of muslim brotherhood members and supporters as well as others many of the youth who participated in the revolution in two thousand and eleven who have nothing to do with the brotherhood are now in jail many of them have been try some have been given death sentences and so on others are in exile of course there is tremendous political repression and
6:26 am
a lack of political freedom so that's really the state unfortunately of politics in egypt in addition to as you were piece mention the closing of space center freedom in the media certainly the cracking down on civil society organizations so it's not really a place where there is a vibrant political debate taking place for democracy emerging quite the opposite unfortunately some shall have to thank you very much indeed for talking to us live from norman oklahoma well. now to syria where more than five thousand rebel fighters and civilians are now being from. two opposition held areas in the northwestern province of state media says more than one hundred thousand people have left the area since a humanitarian corridor to leave the area that the holder has the latest from beirut the evacuations are continuing fighters there family members as well as
6:27 am
civilians being bussed out of what was once the rebel controlled enclave of eastern ghouta to the rebel controlled province of idlib in the northwest of the country this is part of course of the evacuation deals or what amounts really to a surrender the rebels didn't have much of a choice they were besieged by government forces and there was a relentless bombing campaign that was targeting civilians who were trapped inside so it's not only the fighters who are leaving it is people who are involved in opposition activities media activists people that we've been speaking to telling us that we're only able to pack a few belongings and we're going to the unknown we're leaving behind our homes our lives the will we be able to to rebuild our lives once again will we be able to return to our homes so these people are really afraid of what comes next because they're going to live which is also not a safe area it is an area which is a target really of the pro-government alliance but the pro-government alliance declaring victory as saying that they're clearing the area from what they call
6:28 am
terrorists eastern huta has long been a thorn in the side of the government the last major rebel stronghold close to the capital close to the government seat of power there have been numerous attempts over the years to recapture eastern huta but the government lacked the manpower they were busy on many front lines but this time around it was an all out to military campaign and the only choice the opposition had was to surrender. well let's have a look at the province that's where the fighters and their families from eastern goose are going where the province is largely controlled by the rebel alliance high at sharm or h.t.s. it sits next to latakia which is a government stronghold around two and a half million people live there a million of them displaced by fighting in other parts of the country in theory it's a deescalation zone but that hasn't stopped government forces backed by russia from repeatedly bombing cities and towns italy has also been hit by several suspected
