2:32 pm
on wednesday he met the host of this summit the country's prime minister and president on behalf of the united states i want to thank you very much for hosting and hopefully great things will happen later on with our meeting like north korea vietnam was once an enemy of the united states yet in spite of the history the relationship is now good with vietnam regarded as a strategic partner of the u.s. in asia. but it's trump's relationship with kim that's now the priority that hanoi summit aims to build on a historic meeting in singapore in june where they made of a commitment to rid the korean peninsula of some of the most powerful weapons created this time they need to agree a framework for how that'll happen vietnam was an acceptable choice to kim for this summit it's one of the few countries with the north korean embassy which came visited on tuesday night. and like china vietnam's achieve strong economic growth
2:33 pm
while preserving one party rule thriving like few places on earth according to trump who also tweeted that north korea's potential was also also there is both curiosity and excitement about the two leaders this city is now playing host to and i hope that a city once anonymous with war could perhaps become a symbol of something else i feel very happy because world leaders are coming to vietnam to talk about peace to see each other and to shake hands call i think this is a good opportunity for hanoi and it can help us in many ways i'm proud because i was born here and i think the fact that donald trump and khinjan are in hanoi shows it's a safe city i think it will change the way the world thinks about vietnam at this temple worshipers burn incense which they consider to be a link between humans and heaven and now this city itself may become a bridge between two men who've in the past threatened nuclear war. adrian brown al

jazeera hanoi. right let's go to another of our correspondents in the vietnamese capital wayne hey wayne says kim jong un is being offered this tantalizing glimpse of of what could lie ahead for his own country but the two men president and the north korean leader they have yet to meet. yes that's correct they really has been about sideline issues certainly for the u.s. president donald trump who has met as you saw in adrian's piece there with his counterparts in the vietnamese government with the president and the prime minister he signed several significant trade deals with vietnam in those meetings and again he was full of praise of the vietnamese economy which really has been one of the world's economic success stories coming from the ravages of war which ended in one thousand nine hundred fifty five to now having one of the best performing economies
2:35 pm
in the world in the selling point from donald trump is that. it could attempt to replicate this if he agrees to denuclearize the korean peninsula denuclearize his own country and that he too could reform north korea's economy while still maintaining control similar to what we have seen happen in vietnam so the first face to face meeting between kim jong un and donald trump at summits number two if you like in hanoi will take place in a few hours on wednesday night we believe that there will be a brief meeting between the pair before they go into a dinner with other members of their respective delegations but the main summit the main meeting where we expect some sort of agreements to be announced will take place on thursday in hanoi as well all right thank you very much for now wayne and of course we're told you're a bit later as we get closer to that event thank you. still to come here

2:40 pm
donald trump is away his immigration policies are policies are under attack at home a new report is detailing reports of children being abused that immigration detention centers will have worn that in just a little while the. first john hendren reports on a new set for the president's mexico border wall. yes the two hundred forty five days so one eighty two using their newfound power house democrats leveled a direct rebuke at president trump table the house voted to reverse trump's declaration of an emergency on the mexican border the vote followed a spirited sometimes contentious debate how many dead americans does it take for open border advocates to support border security democrats say trump is exceeding his constitutional authority going around congress after it passed a spending bill that specifically denied him money for a border wall building
2:41 pm
a wall much faster is not an american city that's political theater dot's political posturing for twenty twenty true plans to use that declaration to access eight billion dollars in emergency funds to build the wall ninety percent of the drugs and the big stuff goes out to the desert makes a left and goes where you don't have any wall i'm going to call it a wall and you know they're likely to call it a barrier it's a wall it's a big beautiful powerful steel wall the bill now moves to the senate where if all forty seven democrats vote together they would still need for republicans to join them to pass it they appear to have at least three republican senator susan collins lisa murkowski in thom tillis say they will vote to overturn trump's order if republicans in congress line up behind the president the message will be clear he can do what he wants if some republicans even
2:42 pm
a few say no that might at least you know provide some reason for him to be carefully if the senate votes with the house the president would be forced to veto the measure as he's promised to do and congress is unlikely to muster the two thirds majority it needs to override him but there would be no mistaking when it comes to declaring an emergency on the border the president is largely going it alone. even if opponents of the president's emergency order fail with the white house and congress they could still succeed with the third branch of government the courts where they are already arguing that there is no emergency south of the border john hendren al jazeera washington they came alone children in a foreign country taken into custody and now democrats in congress have released internal documents that say thousands of them made allegations they were sexually assaulted where they were being held by a us government agency from twenty fourteen in till last year a total of four thousand five hundred fifty six claims of assault were made one
2:43 pm
thousand three hundred three were deemed credible enough to be sent to investigators in all one hundred seventy claims were against a member of the detention staff the man in charge of the program was defensive before a congressional hearing those are not h.h.s. staff in any of those allegations that statement is false those are white house no no no no no sir those are not a chicken white king of allegations demanding way because again what i'm going to write play my time commander white i don't have a lot of time and you know what i've seen you know what i've seen in these reports that were delivered to us buried in stacks of documents this thick without any any notation i saw thousands of cases of sexual abuse if not by h.h.s. staff them by the people that h.a.h.a. staff overseas. i will make that clarification it doesn't make what happened anything less horrific u.s.
2:44 pm
president donald trump and first order to even more children to be labeled as unaccompanied after they were stripped from their parents at the border under fire he later changed the policy and the courts also stepped in and ordered the children returned many still have not been the new information comes as the democrats now in control of the house promised to investigate the policy for the first time sending subpoenas to trump administration officials promising to expose what happened behind the barbed wire in the camps where the children were kept calling. washington meanwhile the president's former personal lawyer says he's looking forward to in his words telling the truth about donald trump's contacts with russia and alleged criminal conduct out michael carey has been giving testimony to the senate intelligence committee he set to serve time in prison for lying to the committee and twenty seventy on wednesday he'll be giving public testimony on sensitive and potentially explosive topics. at this point in time i really
