a political analyst and public policy professor at george mason university joins us via skype from washington d.c. bill so how significant are president trump and mike pence his comments i mean they could have right concerned about what may have happened to be so why are they talking now why is trump talking now. because they're under pressure from members of congress and from the press which is deeply concerned about the fate of this journalist that was of congress are talking about investigation because a lot of members of congress have been critical of the close relationship that president trump has been trying to build with this saudi government and so the result is that there's some there or there is some pressure coming to that sickly in the united states to look into this matter. and and bill how will the saudis be viewing what trump has said given the cozy nature of the relationship between riyadh and washington how will they be doing what how will the saudis be viewing
3:07 am
what trump has said given the nature of the relationship between riyadh and washington that you pointed out. i'll i can't really answer for the saudis i don't think anyone can but i know that their view is they want the united states want a closer relationship and they see donald trump as someone whom they can deal with . exactly what they're going to do in this situation i don't i don't know i don't think trump on his own would make this a big issue but the big issue to a lot of americans is the war in yemen and the apparent indifference to the human cost of the attacks on the the yemen rebels and those things are being widely publicized in the united states and there really is a lot of pressure coming from congress to examine the relationship between trump and the saudi government yeah a number of u.s. senate says they've also been having their concerns about the disappearance of senator lindsey graham says that if there's any truth to the allegations of wrongdoing by the saudis they'll be

3:12 am
their evidence is illegal and the incident itself is also under question while the world court has no power to enforce decisions for iran there is more on the line than two billion dollars which this case is another chance for iran to take america to task on a world stage opening remarks by the u.s. legal team looked to be a tough act to follow lawyers representing the iranian side begin their opening remarks on wednesday same. wrong. brazil's foreign presidential candidate says he won't be toning down his rhetoric ahead of the second round of voting the former captain looks most likely to become the next leader latin america's biggest nation after easily winning the first round on sunday listen human reports from rio de janeiro. secondary school students in rio de janeiro stop the traffic to try to stop what they see as a major threat to democracy in brazil even though i think we both know doesn't like indigenous people black eighty days fascism his regressing to nine hundred sixty
