8:02 pm
well yes present all trump has changed his story about how they paid to a porn star who claims she had an affair with him more than a decade ago trump tweeted that he knew about a one hundred thirty thousand dollars payment to stormy daniels after one of his lawyers revealed it in a t.v. interview but he said it was a retainer fee for his lawyer and the money did not come from his election campaign funds can't you know press what a on his latest. donald trump has admitted he's aware of the hush money paid to former porn star stormy daniels the president had denied knowing anything about the payment but now he appears to be changing his story on twitter he wrote the agreement was to stop false and extortionist thank you solutions about the affair and he says money from his presidential campaign was not used his tweets follow an interview with rudy giuliani that may have backfired against trump giuliani recently joined trump's legal team he says the president knew about the hush money and even reimbursed his lawyer michael cohen for making the payment so they follow
8:03 pm
the true law firm funneled through over the president repaid the comments contradict trump's previous and i also thought the scandal. trumps lawyer reportedly paid daniels before the presidential election in exchange the core star was to keep quiet about the alleged affair with trump and the lawyer asked for money but apparently were giuliani's arguing is child had no idea what the money was being used for. the production funds were used it would be a violation of u.s. federal law the president can contribute as much as he wants to his own campaign he has to report it and he did not report this to the federal elections commission that would be a criminal violation. team says no laws were broken the fact is just trust me. they're going to come up with no violations there the adult film star has filed
8:04 pm
a defamation lawsuit against the president despite the scandal the trump still appears to enjoy the support of his beats. a young. white house correspondent can really help it joins us live committee these admissions appear to confirm that the president lied about what he knew about payments to stormy daniels is this going to bother him. well it appears to be quite deliberate when you look at it given the fact those tweets there are so carefully worded it's clear that this is gone through some legal vetting it's not sort of the typical language we see in the president's tweet so what in essence we've got here and this has a lot to do with the recent change in the president's lawyer team is that there is a more aggressive strategy here and there's also an attempt to get ahead of the story you remember that raid on the president's attorney's offices michael cohen clearly there were documents there that this. concern perhaps the white house that
8:05 pm
as a result in order to try and change the narrative instead of being blindsided by a narrative that would show contradiction of the president there has been this legal strategy put in place to try and get ahead of it so what we've seen here is rudolph giuliani who is an advisor to the president and has been for quite some time going on television to the conservative leaning network fox network to in essence deliver the bad news on a friendly platform but wouldn't put a stop to questions about whether the money was paid as part of trump's presidential campaign. if anything it's intensifying the questions and here's why a couple of recent you heard in that report that there is concern about this being a campaign contribution and violating federal law because it was not reported but there's another reason why this is problematic and that has to do with the amount of federal mout caps that contribution to twenty five thousand this is a one hundred thirty thousand dollars payment so this is problematic for the
8:06 pm
president because certainly if he did in some way pay this money as he has there has been this admission it was a reimbursement by the president if this can be shown it was an income contribution in other words in trying to in some way improve the president's appearance in the campaign this would be considered and in kind contribution it would be a violation of federal law according to a federal prosecutor that we spoke to here at al-jazeera and so this is certainly going to intensify the questions there's going to be more that's going to be needed to be known and this is something that we know that to robert muller who is overseeing the russian probe is looking at because we've had this revelation this week of those questions concerning questions about this payment so clearly there are a lot of people looking that this and a lot of people looking for some further answers can be how can i thank you very much.
8:07 pm
angry protests have broken out on a remote but strategic yemeni island after the united arab emirates deployed military aircraft and troops there is a culture archipelago is a unesco world heritage site it lies in the gulf of aden and on important oil trade routes and also provides access to nearby regions yemen's prime minister made a rare visit to troops on supporters may now and on wednesday shortly after residents say the u.a.e. unloaded soldiers tanks and armored transport there in attempt to intimidate the internationally recognized government of reports some yemeni troops have been expelled him iraq has been expanding their influence in southern yemen but part of the saudi led coalition fighting hoofy rebels address creek from the defense studies department at kings college in london says the move is part of a much wider strategy by the u.a.e. . and what they've done here is basically occupying a country part of the country so they've done that in aden and they're now do that
8:08 pm
and so which is very far out in the indian ocean to effectively control the backbone munda region of the indian ocean which is part of the grand strategy of the united arab emirates the u.a.e. see themselves or want to see themselves in the future to be the link between the east and the west so it's very important to control here the trade links between east asia and europe which mostly go through soon as canal and the bottom and straight between yemen and generally the horn of africa so if you want to control the straits you have to control the indian ocean so it's not and it's not just enough to have you know military facilities on shore were to have done because they invest heavily into aden the u.a.e. have build similar outposts in somalia and along the red sea coast going up to the suez canal so what they have done here is they have found an island which is very remote from both yemen and somalia it's very far off the coast but it's very
8:09 pm
strategically located and it kind of acts as a quasi aircraft carrier in the minute over the u.a.e. in the middle of the indian ocean where they can control traffic and obviously control the traffic you can also give favorable access to the sea lanes to companies that are related to the u.a.e. so it's a military and political strategy which is very much linked to the economic strategy of you know united arab emirates. nearly one hundred people have been killed in india after a powerful dust and rain storm hit the northern states. and into pradesh the storm destroyed homes disrupted electricity and operated trees so we're going to go course i the storm struck in the dead of night as well slept in their homes leaving a trail of destruction in its weight i for much of stand with a project even the capital new delhi there were intense bursts of lightning accompanied by hail and rain the worst affected will rural areas pulling trees hit
