our squad is big our squad includes any person committed to building a more equitable and just world and that is the work that we want to get back to and given the size of this squad and this great nation we cannot we will not be silenced as we all know the recent tweets and words from the president are simply a continuation of his racist and xenophobic playbook we cannot allow these hateful actions by the president to distract us from the critical work to hold this administration accountable to the inhumane conditions at the border that is separating children from their loved ones and caging them up and the legal horrific conditions for donald trump is not backing down he's calling on the 4 women to apologize to america for what he described as the foul language that used and the terrible things they have said a white house correspondent can help it has but these are people that in my opinion

hate our country despite widespread outrage and accusations of xenophobia u.s. president donald trump on monday escalated his twitter tirade against 4 democratic congresswoman from diverse backgrounds arguing they should return to where they came from if you're not happy here then you can leave so far as i'm concerned if you hate our country. if you're not happy here you could leave trump's comments follow a series of tweets sent over 2 days attacking democratic party representatives alexandria cast your cortez of new york and omar of minnesota where she did to leave of michigan at a on a press lee of massachusetts of the group only omar is foreign born but all are u.s. citizens democratic house speaker nancy pelosi announced a resolution condemning trump's tweets as the congresswoman fired back this is simply a disruption and
12:04 pm
a distraction from the callous chaotic and corrupt culture of this administration all the way down i am not surprised at what he's doing. but i also know that we're focused on making it better because we don't leave the things that we love and when we love this country what that means is that we propose the solutions to fix it we love all people in this country despite pushback from democrats congressional republicans have been slow to can down one senator charged crossed a line another one of the few black republicans in congress accused of using racially offensive language but another top republican senator defended trump's attacks on the democratic congresswoman their socialist they are anti semitic they stand for all the things that most americans disagree with one analyst argues all
12:05 pm
this is part of trump's reelection strategy and the president believes that he got elected because he talked about the war he talked about the immigration he talked about the muslim being and so what we're seeing is donald trump $2.00 for his part donald trump denies any racial atomised boasts of his record of lowering unemployment particularly among people of color and despite the shock of millions who abhor donald trump's latest statements there exists in the united states millions who support the president's attacks kimberly help at al-jazeera the white house or jennifer appear on the limb is the co-founder of republican women for progress she blames the republican leadership for letting donald trump go this fall . this is no surprise republicans have been constantly tested under this administration and they consistently fail when it comes to leadership issues like this what's worse than their typical silence on trump's davis' defense of language
12:06 pm
is how they're trying to victim blame here and how they're trying to talk about how these women they don't agree with their political positions but you know this doesn't rise to racism or you know they're silent or like lindsey graham they're doubling down on this type of rhetoric you know as a republican it is despicable to me it is shameful and i am ashamed of our republican leaders and our republican leadership that they have let this go on for so long and created this environment where donald trump continues to feel like he can create that he can treat american citizens like this so our hope is that we can get more elected officials who can actually serve the people while republicans like us and republicans for progress why we keep speaking out as we don't want to lose the party to racists like this we don't want to lose the party to donald trump and we want to take back that party and create
12:07 pm

12:09 pm
in the european parliamentary elections for actual votes of real voters instead her name emerged from the european council of heads of state an exercise in top down closed door backroom power politics of the sort that many want to see raised from the way the e.u. does business they want to see e.u. leaders more democratically accountable so this parliament when it votes later is going to make her sweat for this job if indeed they approve her at all and don't know what happens then of his rejected by m e p's what happens next. that would be quite unprecedented deeply unsettling for the european union it would be the 1st time a commission nominee has been rejected by the parliament after getting the unanimous backing of all the e.u. heads of state and frankly there is no plan b. replacement candidate for under the rules that have a month to bring another name forward but they've got this very delicate balance to fulfill in the 4 top jobs council president commission president the central bank

12:19 pm
this is. actually a coup so your council. for one thing he said the e.u. has always criticised the parties who are who are it who will give recommendations to the financial institutions mainly the investment banks or other banks or central banks but right now they are doing this they're doing this because greece and the greek cyprus are pressuring the e.u. and they have to show that they're in solidarity with them that's why the e.u. is mistreating turkish side and turkey this is what his sad of course turkey and cyprus has a disagreement about the natural resources and under the eastern mediterranean because they have both sides have all lapping jurisdiction a claim then turkey turkey insists that the greek cyprus should not exclude the turkish sarpy at the northern side during their or the explorations and natural gas sharings so i'm thank you iran's foreign ministers of answer reeves as the door is
12:20 pm
open to negotiations if president donald trump lift sanctions on tehran has told us media it is not believe they'll be a military confrontation with washington. i do not believe the president wants war but i believe there are people around him who wouldn't mind do you think they have a service where you worry that they have more sway than the i think president trump has been on the record that they are trying but i don't think they'll succeed because at the end of the day i think prudence we appreciate people know that iran is a big proud country and we will not take a military attack like today when his comments came as european foreign ministers called for dialogue between the u.s. and iran to try to save the 2050 nuclear deal leaders held talks in brussels in the attempt to salvage the agreement which the e.u. top diplomat insists is still alive when it came reports from brussels. for more
12:21 pm
than a year the e.u. has tried to preserve the nuclear agreement with iran devising schemes to help the government reduce the impact of u.s. sanctions but now that deal is in danger like never before we are looking to find a way to preserve the nuclear deal which we think is the best way of keeping the middle east as a whole nuclear weapon free. iran is still a good year away from developing a nuclear weapon we think there are still some closing thoughts more window to keep the deal alive one of the brokers of the original deal known as the j c peer a is clear about what must happen next we want to see iran going back to full compliance that is that has been in this in this years. but we know it's that technically all the steps that have been taken and that we regret have been taken reversible so we hope and we invite you to reverse the steps and go back to full compliance with the
12:22 pm
agreements but how much sway do european voices have although the strength of feeling here in brussels is pretty clear no amount of words from the e.u. alone can compel the u.s. and iranian government's to negotiate with each other for vamp to happen there has to be a willingness on both sides to give ground and on that the view from the government into is clear. what one a big power that is a bully well then we have to stand up to it it must stop being a bully we have always believed in talks always right this hour right this moment if they stop the oppression they stop the belligerence if they lift sanctions return to the table return to logic we are ready so iran denounces the current us administration while maintaining its commitment to the nuclear deal it negotiated with the previous one and yet iran is also operating outside the terms of that deal in some areas for several weeks iranian your anian enrichment has exceeded agreed
12:23 pm
limits. all of which has emboldened the trump administration with the us president recently warning officials in tehran they were treading on very dangerous territory which means that on the face of it this meeting on its own risks achieving little and over while iran is technically in breach of its commitments under the nuclear agreement dominic a al-jazeera brussels underarm has just confirmed the arrest of a french iranian research or. was detained on monday the french president emmanuel micron demanded an explanation from tehran shortly after the detention was reported the reasons for the arrest and not clear. the foremost african president jacob zuma is back at a state commission hearing on corruption on monday he told the inquiry that he is the target of the conspiracy zuma was for some office last year accused of overseeing the looting of state funds he denies any wrongdoing during his 9 years
