10:02 pm
that are u.s. president donald trump has changed his story about how money 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 catching a president who has the latest. donald trump has admitted he's aware of the hush money paid to former porn star stormy daniels the president hansen not 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 extortionists accusations 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 from making the payment so
10:03 pm
they followed through law for. the present repaid. the comments contradict tom's previous and i also about the scandal. trump 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 trump had no idea what the money was being used for. the transaction 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
10:04 pm
a defamation lawsuit against the president despite the scandal though trump still appears to enjoy the support of his base see a locus of a yawn al-jazeera. white house course one can really help it joins us live from on this and we saw a moment ago can be the white house briefing dominated by this how do you think a spokesperson got on there. well certainly sarah sanders sarah huckabee sanders is downplaying the significance of the revelation that the president essentially lied the contradiction between his account of the payment and that of his legal advisor rudolph giuliani the other thing that sarah sanders appears to be doing is essentially sort of downplaying any suggestion that she herself knew about all of this and lied intentionally to the media repeatedly she said you know this was info that the white house didn't know at the time we give the best information we have at the time and this was sort of the recurring theme is well she really
10:05 pm
downplayed any sort of suggestion that rudolph giuliani in any way harmed the president by coming out in essentially calling the president a liar and his account of these payments so this certainly is significant also significant is the fact that the white house said it was not aware of the wiretapping that took place of president trump's personal or his office is michael cohen certainly this is problematic for the white house but it also may be one of the reasons why we saw rudolph giuliani going on television in essence perhaps trying to get ahead of the story and negative headlines that may be coming out. this isn't going to put a stop to questions about whether the money was paid as part of trump's presidential campaign is it. if anything it's going to intensify this lauren because not only as you heard in that report preceding our chat there the concern about whether or not the president actually reported this the other big concern in all of this is the amount of those contributions federal law capping it at twenty
10:06 pm
five thousand but these payments are what the president says was a retainer amounted to one hundred and thirty thousand dollars so there are not going to be fewer questions as a result of this revelation in fact just the opposite or probably be more and certainly when we know that the concurrent russia investigation is taking place into the special counsel robert muller he has very broad authority so well his initial investigation is about potential collusion the connections to russia whether there was obstruction of justice that could be brought in even further if there's the concern that further laws have been broken can be healthy thank you very much. angry protests have broken out on a remote but strategic yemeni island after the united arab emirates deployed military aircraft and troops there he said quote 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 and supporters made on and on wednesday shortly after residents say the u.a.e. unloaded soldiers tanks and armored transport that attempt to intimidate the internationally recognized government and there were reports of some yemeni troops have been expelled iraqis have been expanding their influence in southern yemen that part of the saudi led coalition fighting who he rebels sometimes referred to as the collapse because of the indian ocean so culture is home to seven hundred demick species including the unique dragons blood tree. it's sixty thousand residents have lived almost completely isolated from the outside world the now find themselves at the center of a past shuttle between again many government and the u.a.e. . dress creek from the defense studies department at kings college in on them says the move is part of a much wider strategy by the u.a.e.
10:08 pm
and what they've done here is basically occupy a country part of the country so they've done that in aden and they're now do that and so cultura which is very far out in the indian ocean to effectively control the backbone man that 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 suez 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 which they have done because they invest into it in the u.a.e. have built 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
10:09 pm
remote from both yemen and somalia it's very far off the coast but it's very strategically located and it kind of acts as a quasi aircraft carrier in the main 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 rainstorm hit the northern states of registered to pradesh the storm destroyed homes destructed electricity and operated trees so nobody ever reports i the storm struck in the dead of night as well slept in their homes leaving a trail of destruction and its weight i from largest stand with
