correspondent kimberly hockett reports. a shifting story from u.s. president donald trump appearing at the white house rose garden ironically on the national day of prayer trump spoke about the importance of face but nothing about a lie he told reporters a month ago aboard air force one you're very. stormy daniels is an adult film star who alleges she had an affair with trump a two thousand and six trump's lawyer michael cohen paid her one hundred thirty thousand dollars during the presidential election campaign to keep quiet and for the first time a member of the president's legal team rudy giuliani admitted the president knew about that payment for move through over the president repeated that could put the president in legal jeopardy because the campaign never disclosed the payment added
exceeds the twenty five thousand dollars legal limit for contributions that money was not campaign money sorry i'm giving you a fact now that you don't know it's not campaign money but melanie sloan a former federal prosecutor says that legal argument is flawed if they made the payment to stormy daniels with the intent that it influenced the campaign it can be an in kind contribution which also can be a felony given the amount on thursday trump defended the move on twitter saying payments like the one to daniels are very common among celebrities and people of wealth the latest scandal follows a shakeup in donald trump's legal team two lawyers have left in the past two months just as there are more questions about another controversy whether or not trump's presidential campaign colluded with russia kimberly helped at al-jazeera at the white house. now the president is no is and the white house press secretary have all made contradictory statements about the payment is told me daniels the press
secretary was asked by reporters about who knew what and when and his what chance. as mayor giuliani stated and i'll refer you back to his comments this was information that the president didn't know at the time but eventually learned have the president has denied and continues to the not the underlying claim and again i've given the best information i had at the time now that news conference hi lies the government's strained relations with the media matthew mccovey act is a republican consultant and former bush administration mate he says trump is convinced the media bias against him in terms of press conferences in terms of of interviews with media organizations trump is is far behind his predecessors done very few interviews anywhere outside of fox news i he's done very very few press conferences that said they are briefing every day that you answer questions there
as you answer questions at events he answers questions with foreign leaders usually two two for each side every time you as a foreign leader with him at the white house so they are somewhat accessible it's not quite as accessible as predecessors then but i also would add though that this is ministration has been attacked more consistently by the press corps probably than any president since nixon that the relationship between the white house and the press corps is as bad as i can remember it in my almost forty years of being alive i mean it really is a war every day and i remember back when steve bands in the white house used to call the media the opposition party and i think for a lot of republicans they see the press corps as trying to impeach trump every single minute of every single day and i think that's part of the reason why trump lashes out at the press corps. syrian rebels have surrendered an enclave of the northern homes countryside to government forces they have been given the option to
pledge allegiance to the government all moved to rebel held territory in northern syria in a halter reports. russian military commanders led the negotiations on behalf of the syrian government rebel factions controlling the northern countryside of homs were given an ultimatum reconcile with the state or surrender and move to rebel held territory in northern syria to avoid an all out military offensive. military pressure has piled on the armed groups a few days ago the pro-government alliance heavily bombarded the region which is at a strategic crossroads linking the main population centers under government control the opposition had little choice around three hundred thousand syrians live there many of them forced from their homes elsewhere in syria the northern homs countryside is the latest rebel held area to surrender the opposition has been losing ground since its biggest defeat in years the fall of eastern huta in early april followed a fierce and intense bombing campaign the pro-government alliance then use the

territory the rebels control that is not along an international border what comes next is more complicated. every offensive to recapture the whole of the problems would cause tensions with turkey which deployed troops as part of an agreement with russia. on this agreement with thirty they know they need to solve the situation in the north of the i want to fall for an offensive in the southern corner of syria is also just as complicated there is the possibility of escalating tensions with israel israelis are worried if the syrian regime. advances toward the border. with. that militia its president bashar al assad has repeatedly pledged to recapture every inch of syrian territory but future bella terry operations may have different calculations.
