to stand up to racism. of a president to the fury of donald trump. but, as he made his way to the golf course today, in a moment, we'll bejoined mr trump's mood seems by bbc one viewers for a full to have improved considerably. round up of the day's news with ben brown. but first in the past five years, it is now known that robert mueller £150 million worth of gold has not recommended any further jewellery has been stolen from asian families, that's according indictments and the president's to bbc research. it s the first time that supporters seem to be celebrating a comprehensive figure, revealing the extent and taking that as backing of the thefts, has been for what he has always claimed. collated and the actual figure there was no collusion, could be even higher. no obstruction, everybody knows it. sian lloyd has been finding out more. everybody knows it is a hoax, one of the greatest hoaxes ever perpetrated on this country. gold jewellery has long been prized during the 22 months by many asian families. of robert mueller‘s investigation, there were prosecutions and convictions. typically 22 carat often bought traitor, traitor. to wear at weddings and festivals but it is being of among others, the president's targeted by criminals. former campaign chairman this retired couple were victims paul manafort, the former of a violent robbery national security adviser michael in their own home. both were beaten and flynn, and mr trump's one—time personal lawyer, michael cohen. their house ransacked. at night when i lock all the doors and windows and go to bed, still but none of those cases directly i don't feel safe. address the key questions these family snaps show mrs syed of whether the president tried to obstruct justice
10:14 pm
wearing some of the treasured items that were taken. and whether russia colluded with the trump campaign bangles, necklaces and rings. in the 2016 election. most of the jewellery i don't know what's are from my parents. some are from my husband. in the report, nobody does. democrats already have their eyes so i had sentimental value fo rthat. on 2020 and those out campaigning to become mr trump's opponents i used to have rings in next year's presidential election have a new rallying cry. on my both ring fingers. that report needs to be made public. but i don't have any ring to wear now. the american people have a right we asked police forces across the uk for details of thefts of asian gold and a need to know. in their areas to reveal the scale the decision about what is released of the problem. rests in the hands of this man, not all responded but the us attorney general. the figures provided show some £150 million worth was stolen over five years. sanjay kumar specialises in selling this type of jewellery. people have been taught by their grandparents and parents that you must buy gold, it's an investment, it's lucky. it's something that we as asians do, so you must do it. people follow the traditions in the culture. we met with the community groups,
