leaks are to be believed that we've been getting in the last few hours mexico is holding pretty firm specifically on what appeared to be one of the main demands from donald trump's trade advisor peter novato that mexico absorbs all of those currently in mexico who are waiting for their asylum claims to be processed in the usa that mexico into the mexican legal system now we're going to leak from mexican authorities say that they would not that bad negotiation remains not to accept safe country status which is what the effectively means so actually apparently holding firm on that demand those talks would have ended by now serving appears there that the to the talks with the 2 delegations have ended and now the u.s. secretary of state at his mexican counterpart have not go into one on one talks so we were expecting a press conference from the mexican foreign minister this hour that seems and that will be delayed if the reports are to be believed another one on one talks between one pair and the mexican foreign minister we know n.b.c.
is reporting that administration official told them that no deal had been reached but they were necessarily expecting any deal to be reached but but we do expect on this have a have some idea of where this goes from here we have monday the monday deadline adult trump says those tabs will be imposed on monday she had her hand see with the latest on that from washington thank you. some u.s. senators are trying to block weapons sales to saudi arabia the united arab emirates and jordan president trump circumvented congress last month by the clearing an emergency because of growing tensions with iran and he approved 8000000000 dollars worth of arms sales which the bipartisan group of senators want stopped as equally and as more on this from washington. this is a bipartisan group of senators most notably the republicans or some of the president's closest allies in the senate but these are offensive weapons they're smart guided bombs they're mortars jet engines for fighter jets they're concerned
