add at this point of course the world has become a place where freedom of thought and freedom of speech isn't become more rare and more difficult to achieve. here. take a look at the rest of the day's news that u.s. president has downplayed criticism of the country's violent political climate despite explosive devices being sent to a string of targets frequently singled out for ridicule by him and his supporters. are investigating the apparent terrorist campaign which was revealed two weeks ahead of us midterm elections. sent by post the targets prominent critics of u.s. president donald trump. the secret service intercepted one bomb sent to the home of hillary clinton trump's democratic opponent in the two thousand and sixteen election another was addressed to former president barack obama. the third arrived in the mail room of broadcaster c.n.n.
12:06 pm
addressed to former cia director john brennan. the devices were mailed in similar padded envelopes and with the same address labels suggesting a coordinated attack. in a speech at the white house on wednesday trump condemned the apparent crime i just want to tell you that in these times we have to unify we have to come together and send one very clear strong and mistake of all message that acts were threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the united states of america for sending of us yet many prominent democrats have accused trump of having brazenly encouraged tax especially on the press. trump has labeled media outlets such as c.n.n. the enemy of the people and recently praised a republican politician for physically harming a journalist in response to the speech top democrats chuck schumer and nancy pelosi
12:07 pm
released a statement saying trump's words ring hollow unless he reverses the statements that condone acts of violence. john brennan one of the intended targets of an explosive also criticize the president's rhetoric. he needs to rethink what he is doing and saying he should not be meeting the tom toms of anger and animosity and war trump appeared to respond to these reproaches at a rally in wisconsin later that day. the medium or so has a responsibility to share the symbol of the dustan of the hostility a constant negative and often times false attack and it was. in less than two weeks polls open in the first general election
12:08 pm
since trump took office and as authorities search for suspects. the country remains politically charged. let's get more on this from scott lucas he's professor of american studies of university of birmingham in the u.k. he's also found of the enduring america web site on u.s. politics and foreign policy welcome to g.w. how credible do you think are these accusations of a link between violent political rhetoric and physical acts of violence. or of course i don't think donald trump is directly responsible for at least seven pipe bomb attacks on people from brock obama to hillary clinton to the billionaire george soros but that's not the point here the point is whether troops language opens up a space for people to think they are justified in carrying out such attacks because this is a worthwhile campaign against transferees enemies of the people and i think you
12:09 pm
honestly have to question that when donald trump praises as he did last week a republican congressman who body slammed a reporter there when donald trump as he did in two thousand and sixteen implicitly called on gun owners to take action against hillary clinton that even if trump says oh i didn't mean this literally that the impression of what does two things first is at the very least you know it divides the country it sets us forces them and secondly it undermines that consensus that we have now or we should know as americans we should as we start with dialogue we start with respect and we start with nonviolence so no i don't think donald trump is directly responsible for these of tots i think he actually carries some of the blame for the atmosphere that makes this seem legitimate rather than as he did yesterday try to blame the media by saying they are the ones that are responsible for hostilities except that we have had attacks on political leaders before we have had poison attacks and we have
12:10 pm
we've had at shooting so why is now difference to van. well certainly we have had a tax in the united states which should come both from the right and for the loved one can think for example about the nail bomb attack on the atlanta olympics in one thousand nine hundred six which was someone who is opposed to abortion rights we can think for example about the attack on the shooting that badly injured a congressman republican congressman named steve scully's what is different about this campaign is is that this is a systematic campaign by someone didn't just get one individual or two individuals but a whole son of individuals and what is the connection between them they are all seen as hate figures for some elements on the political hard right that opens up i think a new space in american politics which is one is are you really saying that all journalists and that all political opponents of donald trump are now fair games
12:11 pm
it's good talking to you for that this got lucas a professor of american studies at the university but thank you. let's take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin salim on has vowed to bring the killers jamal khashoggi to justice in his first public speech since the journalists the prince said saudi arabia would work with a joint investigation into the killing riyadh has acknowledged that it was killed inside the country's stumble consulate but denies the prince was involved. in isolation as investigators say the large scale massacre right depression of revenge of muslims i mean mosque ministry is still continuing they're calling on the u.n. security council to take action we have this as the military is not committing genocide but is carrying out legitimate counter terrorist missions. south korean
