will not be silenced as we all know the recent tweets and words from the president are simply a continuation of his race this is you know phobic 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 in the legal horrific conditions but then will 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 in the terrible things they have said all white house correspondent can really help get. 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 today's attacking democratic party representatives alexandria cast your cortez of new york ilhan omar of minnesota where she did to leave of michigan and they are not presley 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 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 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 both of his record of lowering
unemployment to take it literally among people of color and despite the shock of millions who accord donald trump's latest statements there exists in the united states millions who support the president's attacks can really help at al-jazeera the white house their own supreme leader has spoken for the 1st time on the u.k.'s seizure of an iranian oil tanker. the vicious british government committed piracy and a top down ship they commit crimes and legalize it they're trying to legitimize this maritime robbery the islamic republic will not leave such vicious acts without a response let's get more now from door such a bar is joins us live from the iranian capital tehran bowser so what more has iran's supreme leader been saying. well he was quite hard on the british government his views are very very clear that he considers the seizure of the grace one super oil tanker on july 4th an act of piracy and that the
british government are trying to legitimize what they've done he said that this was a maritime robbery the british navy seize this vessel on july 4th in the strait of gibraltar because they said it was heading to syria on the syrian government's. sanctions so any oil shipments heading there would have been seized the rein in say that this is not the case that it was not for heading there and they don't recognize these e.u. sanctions on the syrian government because they have not been indorsed by the united nations so this is the 1st time we've heard the highest authority in the islamic republic saying that that this specific action by the british navy will not being left on and search so he also addressed another major issue that's been brewing here and that is the future of the 2015 nuclear agreement between iran and the world powers he said that according to the foreign ministry of the country the europeans have 11 commitments under this agreement and they have yet to fulfill any
of them and now they criticize us for reducing our commitments to this agreement and he called this behavior insolent he said that iran will not stand for it and they will certainly continue to reduce their commitments to the nuclear deal of 2015 so very very hard the language that was used and we really get a sense of the direction that iran is heading they are not happy with how the europeans are abiding by this nuclear agreement and the supreme leader stating unequivocally that iran will continue to scale back its commitment to the nuclear deal some true. now members of the european parliament are due to vote in a few hours on whether a woman should get the top job for the 1st time. the lion is in line to be president of the european commission but she's facing opposition germany's defense minister and georgia votes in parliament to replace. a proposed policies into the
minimum wage and a deal on asylum seekers jonah hill joins us live now from strasburg jonah's the vote takes place in just a few hours time but just talk us through what's obstacles as. well the obstacles to sit in the european parliament a large number of m e p's who doubt her not necessarily her ability or suitability for the job but the process which got her here in the 1st place the electoral process she was not one of the selected candidates of the parties who would have faced the voters in the european parliamentary elections in may instead to show her name emerged after 50 hours of torturous talks among european council heads of state a sort of throwback to the power a backroom closed door politics of the past that many people want to see completely raised from the e use executive playbook they see it as a subversive to democracy they want their leaders many of those any piece now to be
more politically accountable and so. on and rather made a speech this morning in which she did everything she could to turn them around making a series of catching pledges many of them she may not even be able to fulfil electoral reform parliamentary reform higher taxes on multinationals big spending on education and here's what she had to see on climate change promising a green deal for europe in her 1st 100 days. almost pressing challenge is keeping our planet. this is the greatest responsibility and opportunity of our times. i want europe to become the 1st climate neutral country in the world by 2050 and john as you say she's facing a lot of opposition so what happens if she is rejected by these what happens next.

foreign ministers have suspended talks with turkey over an air transport agreement and called for the european investment bank to review turkish lending turkish control of the northern part of cyprus is not internationally recognized greek cypriots control the south of the mediterranean island. and what are you up to them they make for many years we told if the greek cypriot side the e.u. or the un do not recognize the rights of the turkish cypriot side as a guarantor state and we shall protect it and we started drilling what comes next as we told the e.u. if they take measures like these ones we will increase our drilling activities we currently have 3 ships in the area and we shall deploy the 4th vessel to the area and of course you know who has more now from istanbul. as for our statement so far it seems turkey is position in this and mediterranean it stance will not be changed if following the decision to curb contacts and funding for turkey turkey believes
that this decision by the e.u. is mainly politically motivated as a result of a pressure by greece and the greek cyprus this is what uncorrupt believes and the measures the measures that are mentioned will not be taken seriously turkey criticised the e.u. for giving political recommendations to central banks and investment banks and foreign minister cho schultz said that this is what the e.u. has always been against then why are they doing this now also tricky believes that it has the upper hand in its relations with the e.u. due to a reference a deal signed a couple of years ago for the syrian refugees turkey already holds 3500000 syrian refugees and it has the power to stop this in illegal refrigerate influx to e.u. that's why a turkish minister said that turkey will continue on its presence in this and mediterranean currently it has turkey has 3 ships once this weekend to address
ships and they said mediterranean and will be sending a 4th one. as soon as possible and the force ship is as is expected to be a suspect one yet another detailed description of the continuing war in yemen has been published and it makes for disturbing reading the independent organization what time of human rights documented the killing of hundreds of civilians last year homes markets and roads all targeted in indiscriminate strikes and ground attacks and then to personally landmines kill dozens the activists say both a yemeni government and hoofy rebels continue to recruit child soldiers soldiers from the saudi led coalition are accused of torturing and sexually assaulting children and arbitrary arrests continue with yemenis being tortured and killed for their religious beliefs or for being media workers were rather more to walk hell as the chairman of montana for human rights which published that report she says both sides have been allowed to undermine civilian rights without consequences. there
are no clean hands when it comes to parties to the conflict in yemen they are all committing horrible violations against civilians with a huge lack of accountability so it's the humanitarian crisis but through this and he will report we are saying it's also a human rights crisis which all the violations led to the humanitarian crisis what is the main obstacle to any accountability as you put it. because. no one cares about what happening in yemen each party to the conflict has its own on lies the fear that will never be accountable so for example saudis and. they are stronger by being supported by their allies us here can france and who think themselves they hide behind the violations of their saudi and immaterial coalition and other so it's the lack of accountability it just make it very difficult they have it's a very preventable violations and necessary violations but they all doing this
violations because they don't care so human if even if there is a war human doesn't have to be the worst humanitarian disaster it's the worst humanitarian disaster because of the attitude of all parties to the conflict among the war and because they just don't care and no one pushed them to care saudi arabia's deputy defense minister has met the u.n. special envoy to yemen calling for an end to what he said was iranian interference comes as yemen's warring sides met to reinforce the cease fire in the around the key port city of the data which has repeatedly been violated the u.n. says representatives from yemen's government and who the rebels also discuss ways to pull back from forces. the lower house of the u.s. congress has passed 2 bills on saudi arabia condemning human rights abuses and seeking sanctions over the murder of the saudi journalist. who also criticised riyadh for detaining female human rights activists bill receive the overwhelming

lost every year many of them bystanders unable to escape the bullets. michael ware not using his real name belongs to a gang he says he can't survive outside it i live i don't know police in a situation with the shipwreck in control of the stuff. you feel you have i've got a little ability i've got the skills but i think you know i could do a reaping the power would go out even when we need to busy do stuff but i just used to do it would you be looking at gangs make money by selling drugs the battle for territory means more customers and higher revenue 18 months ago the government set up the anti gang unit whose work is to root out gangs guns and drugs it conducts daily raids searching the homes of known drug dealers and drug dens while the unit has made hundreds of arrests the city of cape town says there are nearly not enough
officers now the army is being deployed to help curb the violence special operations like this haven't stopped gang violence on the cape flats according to government statistics the number of murders has increased this weekend alone 43 people were murdered more than half of them by gunshot people in these communities say there aren't enough police and they think the presence of the army will make things safer. for many people here accuse the police of being ineffective and corrupt in 2016 a police officer in charge of disposing confiscated firearms was jailed for selling the guns worth half a $1000000.00 to gangsters. this man who doesn't want to be identified and belongs to a gang in lavender hill says poor policing is common the people think the people only with the lives are only interested in the closer so you know which will be
a good as in something in a in an only a. in what did would you drop them directly what i'm going to think money they did get to now go the kitchen i would worry she did go walking again while they may be from different gangs and often find themselves on the streets at. all the gang members we spoke to agree on one thing cindy in the army would only bring a temporary peace and that violence would likely return to the cape flats as soon as it withdraws from al-jazeera on the cape flats in cape town the trumpet ministrations says facebook's digital currency could become a national security threat president donald trump has dismissed the libra of having little standing or dependability comments by the treasury secretary went even further steve minutia unworn of the currency could be used for money laundering or drug trafficking the u.s. congress is expected to start hearings on facebook's plan on tuesday. now wrestling
