12:00 am
this is al jazeera. you know on our intended this is the news hour live from london coming up. the most vile horrible statements about our country the u.s. president renews his attack on 4 congress women saying he's not racist and they should love america. that the office of the mayor the officers are with such that they need to be locked up for a mother's outrage at the decision that charges would be pressed against the police
12:01 am
officer involved in the church cold death of her song thus. i feel so honored and i'm overwhelmed by the german defense minister also left under law and is chosen as the new european commission president. relief efforts in south asia and huge areas of battered by monsoon rains and flooding. and in sports northern ireland returns to the center of world golf for the 1st time in almost 7 decades tiger woods will be aiming for his 1st open championship win since 2006. u.s. president says he doesn't have a racist bone in his body as he comes under increasing fire for his twitter attacks on 4 democratic congress women in the tweets donald trump said the women all u.s. citizens should go back to where they came from and has more from washington. it
12:02 am
wasn't just on twitter in person and on camera u.s. president donald trump continued to stoke controversy and do what they want they can leave they can stay but they should love our country and they should work for the good of our country he's talking about these 4 new members of congress he singled them out for criticism telling them to go back to their own countries even though they are american but because of what they look like many say those are blatantly racist comments now the house says it will vote on a democratic backed resolution to condemn what they describe as his racist comments the president responded on twitter writing those tweets were not racist i don't have a racist bone in my body the so-called vote to be taken is a democratic congress same republicans should not show weakness and fall into their trap this should be a vote on the filthy language statements and lies told by the democrat congresswoman just over a dozen republicans of criticize the president but the leadership of the party the
12:03 am
still clearly with him the president authorizes and i think the tone of all of this is not good for the country but it's coming from all different illogical points of view that's the point to single out any segment of this i think is a mistake democrats just aren't buying that but silence is an endorsement equivocation is an endorsement blaming both sides is an endorsement there is no gray area here there is a very clear right and wrong on the speaker of the house nancy pelosi one further using candid and controversial language on the floor of the house these comments from the white house are disgraceful and disgusting and experiments are racist how shameful to hear him continue to defend those offensive words words that we have all heard him repeat not only about our members but about countless others.
12:04 am
throughout his presidency the controversies piled up republicans have been unwilling to go against this president that seems unlikely to change anytime soon petticoating out to 0 washington speak to mike hanna in washington d.c. mike the president continues to fuel the debate on this issue indeed yes he's continuing to tweet pushing back against this massive criticism that has mounted against his comments in fact creating even greater controversy as he goes along significant there one of the tweets that you mentioned saying that republicans would show weakness should they vote in that vote that will be happening in a few hours time certainly president trump in the past has insisted he will not show weakness in any form if he said tact he says he will return that attack with interest and certainly this is what he is doing here lashing out at the for congresswoman the initial tweet coming sunday shortly before he went off to go and
12:05 am
play golf at one of his clubs was met with complete outrage many saw coming intrinsic racist language urging people to go back from where they came this is a term that's been used throughout the decades in america against people of color so certainly this is a massive controversy but president trump clearly not going to back away if anything he's up in the anti he's increasing the controversy and increasing the level of the surface debate and mike you touched on it on president a vote later about donald trump's comments tell us more about how that's going to play out. it is indeed in about 2 hours' time the house is due to vote on the bill introduced by nancy pelosi which basically calls into question the president trumps a language describing it as a discussed sting as vile but what is very interesting here is that this is a wreck asian when republicans who have kept quiet to mit's much of trump's controversial comments in the past all going to go for the 1st time on record on
12:06 am
a controversial statement made by the president it is up to them now to vote yea or nay on this particular motion voting against it would imply approval of comments that many even republicans would find racist and certainly would find offensive to varying degrees so this is a significant point in which republicans may not be able to keep silent about these ongoing controversial comments a by the president mike hanna thank you very much indeed overwhelm this we can escape now to natasha instead to a professor of u.s. government at the university of essex thanks very much for being with us just on that vote to mean it how do you expect that to play out. well i think it is unprecedented and as a reporter had already stated because the house has has never really voted to condemn in a resolution the words of
12:07 am
a president before and it is forcing republicans to go on record in the past republicans have always defended trying to reporters well not go at ghana's so far as to say well he's right to say the sort of things they've just tried to sidestep it or say as they have in this instance oh this is really about politics or they the policies of these 4 congresswomen have been divisive and try to place blame on the democrats so this gets the republicans in a corner they will have to vote on this and this will show up on their record and they may not want it on their record that they are tacitly complying to the types of statements that trump has been saying interesting that so far as you as you mentioned there's not been any concept particular in the higher echelons of the republican party and some republican politicians have spoken out against it but mostly at the high levels they haven't condemned for this language is it out of fear of losing support for themselves it was a fair of crossing trump an ending up the target of of
12:08 am
a target for him. i think both the republicans have had a lot of support for truckers one of the most popular president for republicans he has you know over 90 percent support from republicans so i think for these republican senators and house members they don't want to go against them because they fear that will affect their support from their constituencies but also who we seem from trial when he gets attacked from his own republican colleagues he goes on the attack is very very personal an attack he will leave these republicans that try to go against them and they need this just it's really not worth it but i think that's going to be really important for trying to understand that while he can rattle up his base and energize his base with these types of racist comments if he wants any chance of winning in 2020 he has to win more votes he needs to increase his support base and these types of comments that are so divisive in nature are
12:09 am
going to do that and i noticed that antony scaramucci who was briefly head of communications at the white house on a trump and he was he was actually fired by trump up until now had stayed entirely loyal to him. this time he's now said he called the language racist and unacceptable he said would donald trump ever tell a white immigrant were the 1st 2nd 3rd or 4th generation to go back to your country no that's why the comments were racist and unacceptable and tetra do you think that people like him who don't have a sort of an electorate as such he's a kind of a a republican but not elected can can afford not to speak out and you think that actually it's a tipping point for republicans that more moderate republicans will draw a line after this. you know i would have thought that the tipping point would have been charlottesville when he basically said that neo nazis were on the same level as people protesting. the neo nazis he didn't condemn
12:10 am
the neo nazis very forcefully at all in fact he seemed to tacitly support them that i thought would have been the tipping point because that was so egregious so racist so awful that at this point nothing really would shock me but i think you're right that there's going to be a handful of republicans here in there that aren't dependent on boats that will come out and condemn this particular scaramucci who at some point had immigrant family it really remains true when you say you know go back to where you came from i think this is something that resonates with any person that had immigrant family in the not so distant past and it's a common trope a common theme very very racist that isn't really american in any way but it's something that americans had to deal with that often instead thank you very much leave your thought thanks for having we are. a new york police officer will not be

union among the promises the lion has made is reform of the very electoral process that had failed to produce a democratically elected candidate with her name emerging instead from behind closed doors as the preferred pick of e.u. heads of government and state it's not only far right populists talking about a democratic deficit in the e.u. anymore many other any peas are saying it as well. and try as she might to be the consensus candidate for all her promise of a green climate deal for europe wasn't enough to sway the greens what is this dream for europe can you explain that to me i can't well if you can't i can't either i mean again a slogan is not a program what is it how much in which direction. but they'll be an abiding sense of relief an autumn of crises beckons a trade war with trump and britain sliding towards a no deal breaks it at least europe now knows who's in charge join

12:18 am
aren't many details in play not much is actually been so then quite frankly nobody is really going to see anything until october when there's a sort of come from a to reverse for the you're thinking mission president and the final one that was quite interesting form of policy point of view was that the promise for a reinsurance program to underpin national insurance programs of support in the vigils was quite interesting but against there's no cost thing there wasn't many details in place and the be quite knows if this is actually what the happen ok so one of the big things that so on the agenda. amongst other things is these bricks and she said on that that she she would support a breakfast extension if good reasons are provided does that give us any clues about the way she might handle any negotiations in a town that's left in between now and end of october well the clue is that it's the same line they use had for the past 2 years now or if since they've underwood or given that there will be if there's movement on the u.k. sides regarding the red lines or that would allow certain changes in the mentality
