by the as those on the down almost all commandos i missed out on the bun and i got to the mythical where they just don't know me what is good in this case even. those of us on this. little test good but we want to develop the ability of vision was a terrible yes but a good place to go into a well middle vocal masuk it might have been a little more difficult there were v.n. in all the limo we'll put. to school with it by that but as i'm a told it ok so how do. you want to throw. it in the snow. can't. suspend one of the two. given the kind of them. been a good source of the last couple that have come. to come into.
i. feel safe yes i mean we asked him cause he is a first generation american. which patients should feel. her father and mother emigrated from italy when emilio was a child and tonight she and her sisters gather for sunday dinner. together i shall funnily enough i come out but it was a. it's ok i want me to answer to that. pitching point i thought it was over the silly what. was going on interesting her speech was actually not so very do i find out what was said. and then and i
think it along when i was young and we certainly don't get along now. i think it's because we're a lot alike so we bought had to live through it and how much time for i was trying to judge you. it would be a cheat. my parents made a decision based on what they thought was the best thing for us. but i didn't adjust to this country at all and i think it affected probably the next twenty years of my life. that's my grand that's the house that we moved in when we moved from italy right here. my grandfather my grandmother my mom my dad and myself and my sister we all lived in the sorrels. i did not want to be here. they told us that it was for a better life. and then give us
a choice this is where we're going and i remember at the airport that there was so many people so many people kids we went to school with. that. you know came there and you know the tears the crying because they knew they were they would probably never see a cigar and. this is my mom in italy. oh my gosh. these are more these are all in adelaide for sure every one of these she's on the phone here. right now horrors. that was a real happy time for her. she's only been back once. you know her last day of school walking home with her sister doing our.
last day of school in italy or they came here and. i think one of the things that i always. i wonder if my life would have been different there. if i didn't came here you know would i have struggled with. years. you know what i'd be fifty in the world couldn't. really have. much of a future but who do you blame you know there's nobody to blame but i made choices and i live with consequences every day of the choices that have made i had opportunities go to college and to do other things but you know my drug addiction and alcoholism got in the way of that. i think in the beginning of when she first
moved here she you know had a hard time figuring out how she was going to fit in she was so different from all the other kids so she kind of drifted towards troublemakers who didn't care who she was or where she came from you know as long as she was willing to party with them i did see her hit rock bottom i've seen her so emaciated you wouldn't even recognize her she would disappear for days she's stolen my car she's left me stranded places the reason i stuck by her is because on the days when she was clean i could see that there was this person this other amelia this good person. but a termagant sober it was almost thirty. i came home to a daughter and i had to play mom.
hard to talk about her. she would go but. most kids should never even. hear about the things that she said live. and. how that has been in and out of prison for years and never got child support. i dropped her off at my parent's house when she was six months old. and i came back permanently when she was six years old. better to know what her favorite food was.

a job since i was fifteen years old. work in a day care. mcdonald's you know. what i do have been company for nineteen years and the question was x. do i feel that for my loyalty it is sad to say i don't. i. was going to forget that you. would always think. of that when you leave those who love you who are. bad when you ask how do you get all the where are you asking. me you're going to know when you're feeling. all there.

for help. i don't think it's a bribe me but i think it's. exhaust yourself. before you act someone else to do something for you. work hard. do what you need to do to take care of yourself. it would just be nice if all of the hard work that you put me and the pride that you take and what you do. they feel down toward. is my third step prayer i say that every morning dad i offer myself to the to bill with me and to do it me as i will do they will always live on a prayer that's all i have i don't have anything else so prayer has to do. but i think prayers powerful song a prayer
a day i'm not successful every day. sometimes i read their prayer and i walk out the door the things i just pray. what's our story. it's i mean me is fiftieth birthday she takes the day off from her job as a waitress to celebrate. it's. the a in. the one. thing this is. not in the interest but that's intersection that was god i mean. i don't have much of a respect for my man before i got pregnant with the enemy and. when i got pregnant i realized that it never was personal but she was never trying to hurt me she was
trying to make good choices with my best interest. truly she's one of my best friends i can call her any day of the week about anything. now. my relationship with nicole is probably as good if not better than most of the women that i know they have had two children their whole lives but i had to work my ass off to earn their respect and earn their trust. it's over and it's been over she hasn't made bad choices like that in a long time and she's been forever dealing with those consequences i mean she is more than dealt with those consequences of those choices for background so it's time for that part of her life to be gone. just above last week or friday we got a phone call from going to go call from the loan officer and he spoke to me and
it's only going to. so there really here bad news in there we didn't we didn't get along so i was sad because we had everything planned for the sixteenth we even put on our carol night drew a little picture of a house up there. the program there were we had plus we apply for. restriction you had to make under under ninety thousand my salary is fifty four thousand but because i work summer school this this summer the five thousand dollars bonus so that's what pushed my salary. this year to work summer school because you can only work oh so many government i mean not that i don't believe i just i mean the whole time i knew it was fifty fifty that's just me though i think it is negative i think again with. i think realist and one of us i think. you know we're only now so. i just want to live what everybody else lives the typical american dream as watch my parents came here. you
know i didn't drink before twenty one and i didn't end up pregnant teenage years like my counterparts did. and everything right now. that everything right. i work i work i work and it's still like there's no way out. this house as a way out. is going to be if you lose yourself you see because everything's going to. be very symbolically today means a lot to me. to start all over again. we've been through a lot as far as i know my mom. five months after a burglary forced deejays family to live with his mother they moved to an apartment
neighborhood in the world but it's not too dangerous i mean it's dangerous everywhere you go but. we can handle it. there's never going to be totally arms which suck but. i grew up in the neighborhood. got a lot of a lot of friends around here. why. the film is. not pretty much were. you just gotta deal with. the news. and i'm. not. asking. what someone broke into our home i don't even care about that she had a kid about the shoes they took you know if you want to take some way for me to co-write it he had trashed my place. that's where the blow came. and it took
security away from my kids and now i have to show them again this is home and this is safe. he. is with it. a lot i'm on mine and this was charlie did a better job. i'm staying positive for out the whole process so. i'm a shut down. my girlfriend they say ok i'm all right it's ok but meanwhile she's panicking you know and i you know i came so hard that i think either you know in a lot of times panic a lot but i can't show her that so i'm bringing home seven fifteen to seven eight for two weeks seven eight. times to. bring home six hundred six fifty if everything goes we'll we're going to six fifteen but you know miss how can the kids didn't back down the fact fifteen. hours in the six

the battle over the minimum wage heated up cross the country today thousands of fast food workers walked off the job desperate for a better way to choose if you give your every. worker a little more money they're probably going to be able to pay bills maybe to spend a little bit more on me to fifty right now so fifty. to survive in twenty first century america i'm nervous we cannot afford for one of us alone a job. on al-jazeera.

welcome to the news hour a prominent u.s. senator who's close to donald trump has declared that america's relationship with saudi arabia cannot move forward until the crown prince is dealt with lindsey graham made the remarks in korea where he's been meeting with turkish president recipe or the one grams being a fiercely critical of mohammed been so man accusing him of being complicit in the murder of the saudi journalist. will. start sanctioning those involved with the killing of mr shogi will make a definitive statement that m.b.a.'s will that it and is responsible for it and come up with a series of sanctions. make sure that others understand this is not what you do if you're an ally of the united states senator graham also discussed the planned withdrawal of u.s. troops from syria saying he hopes it doesn't happen until i sell is destroyed once
and for all brett mcgurk the former u.s. envoy to the anti eisel coalition says there's no chance of that warning the pullout will only give the armed group a new life let's cross over to. in washington for us with more reaction but first we'll speak to some vinge of it who joins us from ghazi inter palmer turkey syria border some very choice words by lindsey graham which will certainly prick the ear of many both in turkey saudi arabia and the u.s. . well it's you graham is one of those u.s. senators who does not known for mincing words he's called mohammed and selma and the saudi crown prince a wrecking ball in the past so this is not the first time these actually airing his views about how he feels about muhammad's online and how he thinks he is implicated and he's basing that on information that was provided by the u.s.
cia earlier after the killing of. that of the orders for the killing did not come from a lower level operative they went straight to the top and it and the end indicted almost the saudi leadership including muhammad its own man but that is not the case with the u.s. president the u.s. president still sees mom and son mind as a key ally in seeing saudi arabia's role in not just buying weapons from the united states but also in forwarding what trump has in visioned as a policy for the middle east so it is very interesting that this is a stance which is closer to the u.s. ally turkey but very different from what the u.s. president has been saying so lindsey graham once again coming to turkey trying to mend fences this is the second visit by a u.s. official in a matter of weeks after of war of words on this suppose that pullout of u.s. troops from syria which lindsey graham says he's going to try and convince the u.s. president to phase out and do it in
a slow and measured maneuver rather than an abrupt of course you bring in that issue we're drawing u.s. troops because graham is also that to calm the waters when it also comes to america's allies in the region that may not necessarily be turkey's allies. absolutely lindsey graham has visited this town of bamby in syria one of the key sticking points between the united states turkey the syrian government and russia so this is a complicated issue on the turkish syria border where the u.s. is going to be pulling out for. almost three thousand of its troops fighting with the help of kurdish fighters which turkey sees as terrorists and the void that will be created by the u.s. forces pulling out is pushing these kurdish fighters towards the government a situation which not the united states or that turks want on the border turkey wants these thirty kilometers of its border completely cleared off the way kurdish
fighters which the united states according to lindsey graham is working to try and figure out a solution where the fight is could be separated as the u.s. troops leave while it has to also play a balancing act when it doesn't abandon its ally which has been giving it so much in the fight against us for the moment. over to washington d.c. where we can join all of the corresponding. gabriel at the moment there is a u.s. government shutdown of all services we've already heard earlier in the week that nancy pelosi wasn't allowed to go to afghanistan at the behest of trump signing off the paperwork and yet we see lindsey graham. so the question has to be arsed did trump send him. it's unclear quite frankly but i can tell you that given that lindsey graham is so close to president trump in this administration there's no way that he would have gone to turkey without some sort of court
a nation with the white house now how much coordination and how much he is speaking on behalf of the administration is unclear but i can tell you lindsey graham someone that really doesn't need president trumps blessing to really go wherever he wants to speak about anything because lindsey graham is one of the most powerful senators he sits on three very important. committees the foreign relations committee the budget committee the appropriations committee as well these are key keeper key key committees that he's on so in that sense he's for many years now been someone that has been a strong voice in international relations he's really speaks for the legislative branch of the u.s. government particularly the senate republicans let's remember this is the second time in the last six months that graham has met with airto on discussing key issues so he's really taken a key role in the congressional talks so to speak with with the turkish leader who
important does it that he is right now when this seems to be dare i say it sort of a diplomatic void you know we have a job that lindsey graham is doing that might have been filled you might say by the secretary of state and old by the secretary of defense. yeah definitely lindsey graham is filling a big void right now i mean like so the secretary of state mike pompei was is deep in talks with north korea right now we've been discussing you have the national security adviser john bolton who's considered more of a diplomat than anything else and then you have what's left and after president trump said that he's going to pull out of syria you saw jim maddest the secretary of defense resign because of that brett mcgurk resign because of that you have john kelly the former chief of staff for president trump who is no longer around as well so there is a real void at a critical moment the time when four americans were just killed in syria at a time when trump says he still wants to pull troops out of syria but he got
a lot of people including senator graham trying to pull him back from that decision as a more gradual pullout and then of course as we just mentioned as well graham has been someone who has been a key ally of president trump but also broken from president trump when it comes to the killing of jamal khashoggi as we heard there graham for a long time now and continues to say that the crown prince of saudi arabia ahmed bin salma needs to be held responsible for this in some way shape or form and he's not backing down from that at all so again this is critical moments graham feels right now he needs to fill a void in in foreign policy and that's why partially why at least he's over there in turkey we'll leave that gave. washington d.c. . well we'll have another summit with. those he tries to get the north korean leader to give up his nuclear program critics a little has really changed since that last meeting which some really dismissed as
a photo opportunity. for washington d.c. . they smiled for the cameras quickly and then got back to the top u.s. secretary of state mike palm pale and north korean negotiator kim young children then went off to the white house the. closed doors a ninety minute meeting with president donald trump the white house claimed progress the united states is going to continue to keep pressure and sanctions on north korea until we see fully and verified denuclearization we've had very good steps and good faith from the north koreans in releasing the hostages and other moves and so we're going to continue those conversations and the president looks forward to next his next major that the white house says that will be at a get to be disclosed location at the end of february the state department announced the discussions continued for hours after secretary pompei o treated the north korean delegation to lunch at their d.c. hotel the last time the two leaders met the president declared the problem solved
north korea would do nuclearize but since then satellite images show work continues on their missile delivery sites but the white house says the focus should be on what the north hasn't done test any new nukes or missiles the problem wasn't solved after the first summit so now it appears the two sides will try again and soon. al-jazeera washington well foreign story from south korea. the announcement that a second summit between u.s. president donald trump and north korean leader kim jong un will take place at the end of next month has been met overall with a positive response the u.n. chief said on friday it was high time negotiations started again seriously and here in south korea the government said it would extend all the help it can to ensure the second summit is a success but it's difficult to be too optimistic about the upcoming summit essentially because the main difference between these two countries and that is on the issue of what denuclearization means still exists to the u.s.
denuclearization means north korea getting rid of its nuclear arsenal in a way that can be verified before scions on that now north korea has not explicitly stated what denuclearization means but we know they expect it to happen in phases and they expect any action it takes to be met with something in return either in the form of sanctions being lifted or humanitarian aid being extended now analysts have said that this upcoming summit could be an opportunity for north korea to try and gauge what sort of concessions it can extract from the trumpet ministration and the best case in are really for the u.s. and for the rest of the world will be for trying to be able to pin north korea down to a detailed roadmap and timetable towards denuclearization as well as a detailed list of north korea's nuclear and missile assets because if this second summit fails to achieve anything it could.
