5:27 am
eldest son donald trump jr told us father about the meeting. according to u.s. media reports cohen is willing to speak to the miller investigation into alleged russian meddling in the election and that has more. as the us president worked to focus the american media on strong economic numbers the question of his potential ties to russia continue to follow him right here going oh it just days after donald trump postponed a white house invite to russian president vladimir putin a reciprocal invitation was extended for trump to go to moscow for the comments come as there are fresh allegations against trump from his one time personal lawyer michael cohen cohen claims that then candidate trump was aware of a twenty sixteen trump tower meeting russians with ties to the kremlin met donald trump jr and son in law jared kushner and promised dirt democratic presidential
5:28 am
opponent hillary clinton and if the president didn't know about the purpose of these meetings with russian officials and their representatives and trump tower then that would create the knowledge element necessary for a criminal charge for months the white house is denied the president knew it's a claim the president repeated on friday on twitter i did not know of the meeting with my son don jr sounds to me like someone is trying to make up stories in order to get himself out of an unrelated jam and he was on the tweet indirectly refers to cohen now being investigated by federal prosecutors for potential campaign finance violations as he attempted to suppress negative news stories about trump cohen may now be cooperating with special counsel robert mueller investigating russian interference in the twenty sixteen u.s. election and whether trump's campaign colluded with russia cohen statements could complicate the president's legal troubles but there are questions about the
5:29 am
credibility of cohen's claims into. congressional interviews and subsequent reports there is no mention of cohen's allegations against the president trump's claims are also in question as e-mails between trump's son and russians went back and forth in two thousand and sixteen then candidate trump told supporters i am going to give a major speech on probably monday of next week and we're going to be discussing all of the things that have taken place with the twins i think you're going to find it very informative and very very high that major speech never materialized but it does suggest president trump may know more than he claims kimberly helped at al-jazeera washington the u.s. economy is growing at its fastest level in years but economists question whether it's sustainable john hendren has the story the united states economy is surging
5:30 am
reaching its strongest growth in four years and president donald trump predicts more to come this isn't a one time shot i happen to think we're going to do extraordinarily well. in our next report next quarter the trump administration reported that u.s. gross domestic product rose at an annual rate of four point one percent almost double the rate in the first three months of the year but many economists don't expect this surge to last with many predicting actual g.d.p. growth to settle to about three percent this year that is because second quarter numbers were boosted by foreign purchases of u.s. soybeans and other products before a trade war raises tariffs on them so i think the growth number today four point one percent in the second quarter is good news but it's very temporary there are two important to the second quarter growth number one is that they were propelled
5:31 am
at large part by a sharp increase in government spending coming off the increase of the budget deficit for earlier this year the tax cuts the second is a sharp spike in exports as traders accelerated shipments to get in ahead of the risk of higher trade barriers coming off the threat of trade wars but president trump says his actions have helped cut the u.s. trade deficit by fifty billion dollars these tax cuts particularly on the business and investment side are going to be boosting wages livelihoods and jobs for middle american ordinary workin folks and it's starting to take effect and that's why i agree with president this is a boom that will be sustainable wage increases have not kept up with overall economic growth but for an administration facing a lengthy probe into the president's ties to russia and a diplomatic feud with allies a growing economy and rising employment numbers even in manufacturing is cause for

celebration and a hastily scheduled presidential appearance we have added three point seven million new jobs since the election. a number that is unthinkable we're in the midst of the longest positive job growth streak in history those numbers could prove hard to sustain as u.s. trading partners around the globe raise tariffs answering a trade war set off by trump himself john hendren al-jazeera wildfires and northern california have killed at least two people and forced thousands of residents to flee firefighters say the base is only partly contained with hot weather and high winds fueling the flames and the gallacher reports over the last forty eight hours the wildfire in california shasta county has tripled in size. on thursday night a blaze exploded and crossed the sacramento river west side of the city of reading with more than ninety thousand residents were given scant warning firefighters are
