the eighth of may and just off the etiquette in the morning here in moscow this is international and a very warm welcome to. show that he is donald trump has left the world waiting on his word in expectation of software you fired off a tweet saying he would decide on the fate of the iran nuclear deal choose day the u.s. president's threat to scrap the deal has set alarm bells ringing in europe of british foreign secretary boris johnson paid a last minute visit to washington in a bid to sway his thinking on the matter johnson met with newly appointed secretary of state. and appeared on trump's favorite t.v. show. the president has been right to call attention to it but you couldn't do that without just throwing the baby out with the ba'ath water without scrapping the whole thing because if you do that you have to answer the question what next foreign secretaries first stop in d.c.
6:22 am
was fox and friends why well johnson wasn't able to speak to the president so he decided to deliver his message via trump's favorite t.v. show he's not the first european official that's tried to warn the us against leaving the deal the german and french foreign ministers have stated that there's no justifiable reason to pull out of the deal and before that president mccrone and chancellor merkel even visited washington d.c. to discuss the matter but they were unable to convince trump otherwise we would open the pandora's box there could be war i don't think they do trump wants war well the us is divided along partisan lines and it's mostly democrats who want to uphold what's widely regarded as obama's only foreign policy achievement according to many pundits on t.v. here but believe it or not the republican chair of the house armed services committee advised against leaving the deal check out what he had to say i'm not necessarily opposed to sticking with this deal forever but you need to have a clear idea about next steps if we or going to pull out so it looks like there's
6:23 am
both a domestic and international effort to convince trump against killing the deal but meanwhile. the former secretary of state john kerry for shadow diplomacy the next diplomat reportedly met iran's foreign minister at the u.n. where the two allegedly discussed ways of preserving the poc how my doubt with the obama administration iran nuclear deal was reached back in twenty fifteen between tehran and five permanent u.n. members plus germany the negotiations have taken over nine years and the signing marked the end of a standoff under the agreement iran is obliged to limit its uranium enrichment in return for the lifting of sanctions. trump's threats to scrap the deal iran's president hinted that his country may continue to comply with his terms in any case and we discuss the issue with a political analyst but has an alley and things trumps brinksmanship could end in war brown says tried germany has tried. no one seems to get through to trump except
6:24 am
netanyahu the war hawks in the white house such as bolton and pompei oh and this is i think one of the biggest problems of our day now they will be pushing harder harder harder to get a war with iran with the deal dead this going to be a lot more warmongering you'll have accusations w m d's like we had in two thousand and two two thousand and three in the run up to iraq to iraq is pretty much decimated libya is being decimated yemen is being decimated. president drums pick for cia director gina hospital is gearing up for a senate grilling candace rondeaux to see is controversial she's implicated in the scandal surrounding the agency's or so-called enhanced interrogation techniques my dad has dia has more details. trump's really pushing gina haskell is the perfect candidate strong really strong smart tough and with thirty years of juji behind her so why all the hate one highly
6:25 am
respected nominee for cia director gina her support has come on before because she was too tough on terrorists think of that in these very dangerous times we have the most qualified person or woman who democrats want out because she is too tough on terror when gina toughen terrorists meaning she ran a secret cia detention center where she those under her reportedly tortured prisoners by the way the videotapes which allegedly documented some of the most horrific tortures were destroyed by the cia tough woman all right with years of experience in the moral torture and any other reasons to vouch for her there's no one more qualified to be the first woman to lead the cia than thirty plus years cia veteran gina has but any democrat who claims to support women's empowerment and
6:26 am
our national security but opposes her nomination is a total hypocrite interesting how someone's gender is now a factor when selecting a new cia head great argument as well that's like telling all black people all white people to only vote for the candidate of their skin color and people aren't buying that argument torture sarah torture is the reason why she's not qualified your ridiculous trump loving idiots feminism is about ensuring that women have the same rights and opportunities as man it also means holding women as accountable as man i oppose any torture of male or female for cia director that's like saying if you're going to be a group. refuse to eat one of jack the ripper his prime cuts of meat your hypocrite women's empowerment is about getting their rights women nominated for the job not just one with seniority now gina who apparently had no problem torturing tied up
6:27 am
suspects is allegedly squeamish about the confirmation hearing all those tough questions and in public might prove too much but trump has her back don't tell me it doesn't work to what your works ok folks should do you know have these go torture doesn't work believe me it works ok trump was applauded for that and many are of course against haskell and for their troubles that targeted with this president trump is nominated split to lead the cia but rand paul is opposing her confirmation falsely accusing her of torturing good law it's right up there is a big passport did exactly what our country asked of her and what was necessary to keep us safe call rep with mine to washington to represent us. fortunately those resisting on capitol hill alone one hundred nine retired generals and admirals have urged the u.s.
6:28 am
senate to reconsider given her ties to you know torturing human beings as a retired general and flag officers of the united states military we are deeply troubled by the prospect of someone who appears to have been intimately involved in torture being elevated to one of the most important positions of leadership in the intelligence community with this much opposition to gina haskell's nomination the job is still far off but make no mistake if the former torture a gets the job despite everything many many people will cheer and applaud. workers at the memorial site of the former nazi death camp auschwitz say they become the target of a hate campaign waged by polish. nationalists they've also denounced an increase in anti-semitic incidents since a controversial holocaust speech law was passed in the country earlier this year most recently the home of an italian guide at the concentration camp was vandalized
6:29 am
with swastikas and xenophobic slogans including poland for the poles and only polish guides at auschwitz the polish nationalists have accused officials of the moral side of downplaying the death of known jewish polish prisoners in the camp by focusing on his jewish victims. what we hear is that people who died here mostly were jews that's a lie let me speak and so it is the government of israel and jews polish jews especially our attacking us they make us look bad. auschwitz museum officials also say they've been victims of a wave of online harassment on fake news reportedly incited by nationalists have also denied claims the museum's activities have not been representative enough of polish jews but poland's new holocaust speech law bans claims the country collaborated with nazi germany during world war two specifically the legislation
6:30 am
prohibits references to wartime nazi death camps in the country as being polish and those in violation of the law face up to three years behind bars and since being passed in february the law has met with a backlash in particular from israel and the united states why the polish government has seen fit to come up with this legislation for beating people to have an opinion about the guilt of the polish nation it is bad for governments to try and regulate culture and history and literature. why no one can understand what why they would like to have some control over the narrative but it is all in all that bad practice the history of no matter whether they are polish or foreign should be the guy it's their.
