spend a week that saw a failed summit with north korea and an explosive testimony by his former lawyer who accused him of criminal conspiracy the u.s. president has now returned home to a far more friendly setting donald trump is addressing some of his core supporters of the largest annual gathering of conservatives in america the conservative political action conference known as c pac and what turned out to be the longest speech of his presidency last in more than two hours he criticized congressional inquiries against him and labeled the investigation into claims of russian influence a collusion delusion and gallagher was at a conference just outside washington d.c. and sent us this update. the president don't jump might have had a couple of uncomfortable weeks was north korea's foremost fixer michael cohen giving damning testimony before congress good to hear that she packed this is
5:51 am
a space that he's been talking to them about all the usual issues his relationship with china the booming economy and also immigration but he did touch briefly on the miller report let's listen to what the president had to say. they fight so hard on this witch hunt this phony deal that they put together this phony thing that now looks like it's dying so they don't have anything with russia there's no collusion so now they go and morph into let's inspect every deal he's ever done we're going to go into his finances we're going to check his deals we're going to check these people and see. this. i saw a little shifty shift yesterday. it's a first time he went into a meeting. and they said we're going to do is finance i said where did that come from we always talked about russia collusion with russia the collusion delusion so what the president was essentially doing he was energizing his base he talked about
5:52 am
the love that was in this room and this theme of this year's seabright really a strong prism he talked a lot about being forthcoming twenty twenty alexion and these are things that will come up again and again he wants people to believe that these are all decisions the democrats are socialists he talked about that in relation to venezuela he will talk about that once again in the future but in this room lots of love for the president don't jump going forward to the twenty twenty lunch. now in our other top stories this hour high level talks between the u.s. and the afghan taliban have concluded in doha with no agreement this despite u.s. envoy zalmay khalilzad saying earlier that a previous round of talks made unprecedented progress and the seventeen year war the taliban is refusing to directly negotiate with the afghan government and it wants foreign forces to withdraw from the country that occasion is led by the co-founder of the group when the abdul ghani baradar also jabari is in doha with
5:53 am
more. therefore has wrapped up here in doha without any specific agreement being reached between the taliban and the u.s. but the taliban spokesperson is optimistic that they're on the right path and said that the have made progress but they haven't finalized any kind of agreements and of course at stake here is the future of over thirty five million people in afghanistan something the taliban wants to make sure that they are involved in their future and their governments that is now the issue here is the idea of a u.s. withdrawal is there's a u.s. troop withdrawal that is there's a lot of fourteen thousand u.s. troops in afghanistan and the taliban wants them to leave their country the other main issue is the taliban does not recognize the current government in office alva ashraf ghani as legitimate they are not negotiating with him they're not being represented here and that is something the americans hope they can work on to bring the two sides together to have a dialogue that will discuss the future of their country with all parties involved
5:54 am
. but inside afghanistan the violence continues the taliban claimed responsibility for an attack on an army base on friday which killed at least twenty three afghan soldiers a share about base in helmand province is shared by afghan and american troops the afghan defense ministry says twenty attackers including eight suicide bomb has also killed thousands of women have met in provinces across afghanistan to ensure their rights are protected during peace negotiations their demands were voiced at a conference in kabul shown by this report from the afghan capital. afghan woman a refusing to be left behind in political negotiations they say they want to present a unified front as the taliban in the united states hold talks to end seventeen years of who today there are four women behind them a fifteen thousand other they spoke after the largest ever national women's jirga
5:55 am
council as the taliban met with the u.s. and doha this was a parallel meeting except men were replaced by woman might get on everyone came to say their perspective it was a proud moment for me among these women we cannot travel to other provinces because of security but this allowed us to be united the national women's jirga was the result of a grassroots movement that began in kabul in august and spirit to all of afghanistan's thirty four provinces influential women from each province late the meetings the format included a question and answer session where they discussed women's legal and constitutional rights their role in islam and afghan culture then each province wrote a statement of their demands for peace these declarations lined what they want and will fight for should the u.s. and taliban agree to a deal a scene a sufi is the acting minister of information and culture the government backs the woman's jirga but she denied they were all president gani supporters there were
5:56 am
a lot of government. they were all women who believed in who have analyzed their involvement from different social economic political and nonpolitical government non-government civil society addresses where they would. see that we have federal there is concern the taliban could roll back hard for women's rights but many women say it's conservative afghan values that they're rallying against and need protection from the provincial me. holden secret to protect women from any backlash the woman's jurga highly guarded circus and most people are not among the taliban but they are like taliban just suit and ties we can understand from their words that we are in danger they have the old conservative mentality that it's a threat for us and we feel they may try to kill us president danny is organizing
