8:19 pm
interview giuliani revealed trump knew about payments made to danielle's often alleged affair in two thousand and six trump of previously denied any knowledge of the hush money. already know when your. garden yesterday. will get it back great music great for what it does it feel good the birdbath. well u.s. president is due to address the national rifle association's annual conference in dallas texas within the hour he is expected to brace the powerful lobbying group off to briefly challenging it earlier this year off to a high school shooting in florida hi joe castro joins us live from outside the conference and i think it is their first annual meeting since the school shooting in florida what can we expect trying to say to the n.r.a. . i merriam so last year trump became the first sitting u.s. president to address the n.r.a.
8:20 pm
in more than thirty years and he told the crowd at that time quote i will never ever let you down we expect more of the same today as he's making his way here to dallas convention center the n.r.a. donated more than thirty million dollars to his campaign fund and there is a sense among its five million members that the president is now be fulled into them and trump is certainly not protesting he has long said that he is the defender of the second amendment and what we expect today will be the president likely in a long rambling campaign rally style speech addressing his supporters and most likely touting his efforts to arm teachers as his response to the to the shooting in parkland for seventeen people were killed by a high school shooter what we are likely not expect to hear although some protesters are say they're still hopeful dim chance that the president might show more of his compromising side which you alluded to in the days after the partisan
8:21 pm
shooting the president met with lawmakers in a televised meeting and said that he supported raising the age limit of buying assault style weapons and he even pointedly said to some of the senators that he was not scared of the n.r.a. like they were well since those days the president has backpedaled much of what he has said and now that again that the white house's major policy initiative in response to these school shootings is nothing more than to arm teachers which is a controversial idea that three quarters of a whole teachers of said they are against marion. got himself into a bit of a muddle with his legal team most of the payments the adult movie stars still need daniels how's he been handling that. that's right now that is the big controversy that's overshadowing even this moment that is supposed to be the moment of glory for the president to address his gun lobby supporters what we heard earlier as he was in route to this convention in dallas with him essentially
8:22 pm
now throwing his the new leader of his legal team under the bus retooling on the former mayor of new york who was brought in to really straighten out what seemed to be a legal team in chaos he went on fox news yesterday and revealed to everyone's surprise that trump in fact reimbursed his attorney robert cohen for the payments made to that porn star one hundred thirty thousand dollars that was new bombshell information that really slows a wrench into the president's legal defense and today what we heard the president say was that rudy giuliani his new attorney got ahead of himself and that he would be more clear on the fast later we're expecting a statement from him in the future so what really comes down to is this overshadowing drama with this with trump's legal team with the russian vest occasion with the payments to the porn star that are all the backdrop to the speech of the president expected to get to the gun lobby which he hopes to be his moment
8:23 pm
to shine and ignore those other issues are thanks very much heidi jocasta in dallas texas where u.s. president trump is expected to address the powerful lobbying group the n.r.a. right. a u.s. delegation is on its way home from china after two days of talks aimed at heading off a potential trade war chinese media is reporting that has been progress off the threats from the world's two biggest economies to put high tariffs on each other's goods but as adrian brown reports from beijing as still appears to be a long way to go. as is so often the case in china the media were kept away from the venue for these tools beforehand both delegations but still to play down expectations of a breakthrough we now know why for a while there was progress in some areas major disagreements remain. less than two days was never going to be enough time to resolve them all the u.s. came with a long list of demands immediate action to reduce china's huge trade surplus with
8:24 pm
the united states and then to force technology transfers whereby u.s. companies have to hand over their intellectual property to local joint venture partners as a condition for doing business here the u.s. has also been complaining about the heavy state subsidies for technology development like robotics and i.t. one area though where china is unlikely to yield analysts say the deepening strain in relations is a recognition by the united states that china once seen as a partner is now regarded as a strategic rival for trond. competing with china is a very important for him and he wants to win and china has to give him something a win but whatever china gives it won't be sufficient for trump or for the u.s. because there's no way for china to abandon its industrial policy.
8:25 pm
it's six months since president trump and china's leaders she jingping last mode and they could be getting together again soon after trump tweeted that he looks forward to seeing she in the not too distant future that could mean after his planned summit with kim jong un but cheating ping had someone else on his mind on friday karl marx the german philosopher was born two hundred years ago on saturday the president repeatedly said the communist party mustn't forget its socialist roots as it strives to bring about the rejuvenation of the chinese nation and that rejuvenation includes maintaining a tough line with the united states on trade adrian brown al-jazeera beijing the nobel prize for literature will not be awarded this year. in that decides the prize the swedish academy has been engulfed in a scandal over sexual assault allegations. diane has more.
8:26 pm
it's a scandal that's left the swedish academy in turmoil and the nobel prize for literature on hold at least for now the academy decided this year's winner will be selected and announced in two thousand one thousand in. the confidence in the academy is so low in the world at the moment and that is the deciding reason why we now refrain from awarding this prize. eighteen women say they were raped assaulted or harassed by famous photographer john clarke not he's the husband of academy member and poet catarina frost and sun the women l. legend the abuse happened in properties owned by the swedish academy their complaints they say were ignored he has denied the allegations his wife has since resigned. over the crisis has aggravated differences among its members shedding light on other problems the academy is also dealing with allegations of financial crimes and in the past names of laureates were reportedly leaked before winners
8:27 pm
were officially announced. i think the swedish academy is worth more than that it shouldn't disappear because of the scandal which it undoubtedly is but never cademy member has done anything as far as i know. protests were held for weeks the global need to move mid likely played a role in the revelations and the academy's decision the voting process was also an issue the academy had eighteen lifetime members but several have resigned since the scandal including the organization's first female leader. we only have ten members at the moment and now we really have to start electing new members and show the world that we are serious. leaders of the swedish academy which is separate from the norwegian committee that awards the nobel peace prize hope the delay will give them time to regroup and recover their once pristine beaches reputation curtsey a little bit so they yearn al-jazeera. spain will continue to investigate and
