2:10 am
or sneezing. well moving on to other news now and the u.s. president has used profane language to attack his political rivals during a speech celebrating his acquittal on impeachment charges an unrepentant donald trump described the proceedings as corrupt and run by dirty cops and as i was house correspondent kimberly helka reports the address could set the tone for his 20 twentieth's campaign. one day after the u.s. senate voted not to remove the u.s. president from office donald trump was in the mood to celebrate i've done things wrong in my life i will admit not purposely but i've done things wrong. but this is what the end result is. trouble railed against opposition democrats who watched the impeachment effort against him at times using language that was derogatory and profane it was all both.
2:11 am
of you trying to coerce a now into helping him cheat truck took a bit congressman adam schiff who led the inquiry into whether trump abused his presidential powers by withholding military aid to ukraine in an attempt to get them to investigate his political rival former vice president joe biden a corrupt politician named adam schiff made up my statement to the ukrainian president he brought it out of thin air just made it up they say he's a screenwriter a failed screenwriter donald j. trump earlier that day at a national prayer breakfast trump also went after mitt romney who was the only republican senator who voted to remove trump from office he also lashed out at house speaker nancy pelosi i don't like people who use their faith as justification. for doing what they know is wrong. palosi blasted the president in response a pretty hard for him because he's so off the track of our constitution but
2:12 am
throughout trumps more than an hour long remarks he repeatedly maintained he committed no wrongdoing it was a sharp contrast to president bill clinton's more than a minute long statement in 1999 following his own impeachment acquittal i want to say again to the american people. how profoundly sorry i am. for what i said and did to trigger these events thank you. troubles only apology came not to americans but to his family who he says has been caught up in allegations and investigations since the start of his presidency i want to apologize to my family for having them have to go through a phony rotten deal well the impeachment trial may be over the allegations are not both democrats and republicans are vowing to take this case to american voters
2:13 am
in november who will ultimately decide if donald trump is a one or 2 term president can really help get al jazeera the white house well let's speak to ashley props who is joining us live from washington d.c. she's a political commentator and also a board member with republican women for progress i say let's start with trump's turn here in this rather extraordinary speech sounded a lot more like a campaign rally instead of an address from the east room replete with these quite bob personal attacks how does this kind of tone and play out in an election year. well you know it's interesting is this is the same tone that he has had since he was on the campaign trail back in 2016 and you would think that the president after going through this impeachment process would feel some sort of you know apology was necessary to the american people but he in fact does not see that he is such an entertainer that he truly believes that he has been wronged by by those in congress
2:14 am
who put him through this or by those who he thought conducted a witch hunt against him in the democratic party and that is just wrong he needs to uphold the office of the presidency and all of that respect and decorum that comes with it that he just does not possess and i do think that this will be taken out by voters at the ballot box in november because there's a majority of americans right now who are feeling maybe a tad disrespected by this process who feel like this process didn't play out the way in which it should have because the senate didn't in fact do their job but i do want to applaud senator mitt romney for taking a very courageous stand and knowing that it was time to do something about trump's erratic behavior and behavior that quite frankly should give us as americans some pause actually say that mitt romney did the right thing and he obviously voters had with the democrats there and also know that even though they voted not to remove him from office some republicans did say that he acted inappropriately with the
2:15 am
tongue backed inappropriately in hopes that they that all of this would change his behavior so what do you think it would take for the republican party to try to rein him in. so what's interesting about that statement is the fact that sen such as susan collins lisa murkowski all went on national television saying that message of the president will feel remorse because of this process and we are we are thinking that we are encouraged by this because he has acted badly he must know this because he is then on trial for his behavior and for his actions which were inappropriate however this campaign stump speech that he is doing post acquittal is showing that he has no remorse for any of his behavior the only thing that he had said is yes i've made some mistakes in my life but he is not speaking directly to the american people for the mistakes that he has made during his time as president so i don't think we're going to see a remorseful trump leading through the election i think we're going to see
2:16 am
a very boastful trump who is going to continue to sound the drum of his acquittal and just really throw it back to the democrats and i do think now that we're seeing some republican senators go after the connections on the bidens you know they're a dog with a bone to pick even though the president's been acquitted and i don't quite understand that because there is a lot more i think that needs to be investigated on the side of trump than there on the side of the biden's actually let me ask you because if this is his stump speech as we head towards november who do you think that he has to win over does he try to need to try to be well even appeared to to tries to be bought bipartisan. i think that 2 demographics that he really needs to pay attention to that i think most of the pollsters here in america are paying attention to are the urban female voters who really swung for trump in 2016 but in the midterms really swung blue which means they supported democrats in those midterm elections are those same women who were really worried about their family's financial well being going to
2:17 am
cast aside all of the degrading racist sexist comments that this president has made and think that he can be a true leader for the american people i really think we've shown now again and again through polling that that is not the case that his support among that voting bloc is slipping and there are a very very strong voting bloc so i do think that he has some concern he will have to try to win them over but again that all really speaks to his tone and it shows that his tone is not changing in the hours after his acquittal indeed actually i want to take a step back kid because we've seen this demonstration of really profound partisan division that and business essentially in congress so how now does the country move forward. i really don't know i hold out hope that this country can come together in a bipartisan manner but i really don't think that that's going to happen and what i saw in the state of the union the other night was just. in my opinion just very sad
2:18 am
you know you saw speaker pelosi reach out to shake the hand of donald trump you saw him refuse that at the end of the night you know given her frustration in that situation i don't blame her for ripping up the speech that speech was full of many false hoods and she knew it when the president spoke about many things you could hear a lot of the democrats in the chamber chanting you know specific bill numbers saying pass it move it forward so i really don't think there's going to be a willingness from this president to move anything forward in a bipartisan fashion i think he believes he has won the case but again it's going to come down to the ballot box and whether he can win over the american people i think congress really did tried to do its job of the senate unfortunately did not the only senator who i believe did his job was mitt romney and he spoke to that and said you know years from now i believe that i can look my children and grandchildren in the eye in history and know that i did the right thing and i would urge all americans at this point november to think the same thing ashley process
2:19 am
political commentator that is speaking to us from a very divided washington d.c. thank you ashley for joining us. well there's plenty more ahead for you in this news hour including in this water it is not only water it is also the sewage of the scam the diet conditions at a makeshift camp in syria's it live province as thousands flee an intensified government offensive. and one formula is having to go back to the drawing board for its race in jakarta. now the israeli army says it's sending around $1000.00 more soldiers and to the occupied west bank after an upsurge in violence than there been several clashes in several cities between palestinians and the israeli army off to 4 palestinians were shot dead in separate incidents a suspect involved in

2:22 am
since august after the syrian government advance its strikes in the south of there at the camp situation is very dire a because it's all make up to make up shelters there are only tents and because of the harsh weather conditions a people have been suffering as you can see here the tents have been flooded it is getting more difficult for those people to live around here because there are also more people coming over and they have to share their tents it with those people and of course it is very difficult mostly for women and children who suffer bad conditions mainly lack of hygiene food lack of education everything is a problem here and those this is not a regular camp by the way the camp was built by the financial fight or by the finance of the people who have been living here and i'm told by the local n.g.o.s
2:23 am
who brought us here that even the rules are built by this of millions all monies so it seems the administrations are not enough are not capable enough to take care of all those people who have been displaced from all over. across it lip. this is not a life it's no way to live. in a new cloudy lab we lost our homes and our land our kids it's not safe for them to go away we are subjugated. there's no food for the children no education no skills we don't have the basics even i feel like my soul is leaving my body. no money there's lots of money there's no school no aid no water no bread it's hard for us to play even going to the market is difficult i'm scared of the planes people have a lot to cope with here for instance here they are trying to fill in that order so
2:24 am
that they can stop the flood reaching their tents so that they can keep their stuff clean and a usable i have to tell that in this water it is not only water it is also the sewage of the scam that's why hygiene is a very big problem and it is a risk for people diseases that might be seen on people and i have to remind that there is no medicine here when it's a an 8 doesn't reach to everywhere especially medicine and it is difficult for dignitary and aid organizations to access everyone especially given the conditions given more displacement from south to the north it is very difficult it is very very dire in these camps and if people are tired people are tired of struggling with everything and when we speak to people they always cry because they say they lack everything here now it's a call from those people to the international community that the syrian government's attacks must be stopped very soon. protest leaders in malawi are

2:32 am
a rare confrontation between turkey and the syrian government on monday. now brazil's farai president diable sonar is proposing a bill that would open up indigenous land to mining agriculture and energy projects now the bill which has yet to receive congressional approval has already drawn strong criticism from environmentalists and indigenous groups they say it could wipe out their communities and speed up deforestation also naro is accusing critics of hindering development. this is a big step forward it depends on congress pressure from the board to list those people from the environment right if i could one i would confine them to the. likely environment so much well let's speak now to christian party as he is the program director at amazon watch and he travels regularly to the brazilian amazon and now joins us live via skype from oakland california christian i know that amazon watch is saying that this bill violates brazil's constitution so tell me how
2:33 am
this does that. thanks for having us on the call today this is an incredibly important issue and indeed also not as proposed bill brazenly violates president's constitution which guarantees the right to its indigenous peoples to consultation this is the kind of consultation that is minister of mines of energy has said will be but a formality and not be carried out in the rigorous manner that the constitution guarantees in addition to international labor organization convention $169.00 which also in trying is the right to consultation indigenous people to have this right and shrine in the constitution and other international convention then they're demanding it today much to incur in opposition to oppose or not it was trying to ram down their throats a christian i say this is a is a part of a raft of legislation that also now is saying will lift indigenous communities out of poverty and also improve brazil's struggling economy but i also say that
2:34 am
brazil's own central bank is warning that this will house investment when banks are looking towards more climate friendly policies so could this actually have the opposite effect and backfire and also nora. indeed it could also not i was doing here is he's pushing brazil upper reputational cliffs by trying to open up indigenous territories which are the best preserved territories in the brazilian amazon to industrial activity which is highly destructive not only to the environment but also to the culture of indigenous peoples he sending a signal that this government lives outside of the law that it will do anything to encourage what it considers to be development by destroying the forest and destroying indigenous territories the government is actually sending a signal to investors that if they want to be responsible with their money they need to look elsewhere and christian i do want to ask you about how also now is regarded in brazil particularly his ass attitude towards and digitas people i
2:35 am
believe has referred to them as animals in a 0 and last month said something like more and more the indian as a human being just like us how have brazilians been responding to that kind of thing. by and large brazilians reject this deeply racist and exclusionary language the poles is using towards indigenous peoples this is the kind of language that was used routinely during. dictatorship an era that both are not harkens back to the as an era of great pride when in fact this sort of language is extremely retrograde is extremely harmful to the country's image and of course is extremely harmful to minorities like indigenous peoples but he has not only targeted indigenous peoples he's targeted other minorities with this kind of language which is that essentially trying to do you does human rights that he actually said last month that indigenous peoples are evolving and that they will soon reach our status that is the say white people status and he is being sued
2:36 am
for this racist language this hate language by the largest indigenous organization in brazil called the association of brazil's magennis peoples because it is illegal to use that kind of language in brazil and to brazilian public. rejects this language by a large it does not want to see people marginalized in this way it wants people's rights to be opposed well speaking of indigenous groups i say that this week also now are also pointed out from the christian missionary to lead the national indian foundation this is a man who previously tried to establish a chechen every indigenous community in brazil how is that going i have a. yes this fundamentalists zealots that was it a name to run very sensitive branch of the national indigenous organisation for now . is someone who in the past has tried to profit ties in indigenous territories and isolated peoples are the people he will be overseeing peoples who live in by
2:37 am
a voluntary isolation who are the among the most vulnerable people on the planet they are not immunized against even the most trivial illness like a common cold so if they come into contact with outsiders they can be wiped out and what he is proposing is a forced contact with these people he has in the past he's now trying to distance himself from his past behavior and positions but we know what both are not who has done by naming him is a continued dismantling of the indigenous institutions in the country to make them completely not only not serve indigenous peoples but serve interests that are completely in detriment completely opposed to their interests this is what the indigenous movement in brazil has called institutionalized genocide and question i'm still continue to see opposition to one of these policies christian paria there a program to act had amazon watch thank you for joining us on out of there thanks for having me. now thousands of iraqi students have rallied in the cities of

assuming office in the normal assad herbie he practices put us in a critical angle the task intrusted to us cannot be continued at the same time while our youth is being targeted i didn't accept this mission except to build what has been destroyed it is not ethical to accept the current situation. allow he said it a priority for his new government would be to conduct an investigation into the latest killings but in fact there have been many promises of investigations in the past but only one has been published so far since the beginning of protests in october another reason why it might be difficult for allow you to bring those responsible for the latest violence to account because his appointment was backed by shia cleric and look to the outsider and it's his followers who stand accused of committing the violence and it also seems that the speech of the prime minister designate has done little to actually stabilize the situation because just as he
2:40 am
was. speaking there was another very similar incident in the southern city of kerbala with followers of for the us that are allegedly against forming the protest sites in the incident once again led to several casualties not a sudden have come out repeatedly and denied in the involvement in these incidents what they have said however is that what they're trying to do is to root out any infiltrators but overall these mounting as collations and clashes in the protest side are raising fears that the sudras are trying to curtail any opposition to their candidate that they're trying to perhaps even and the protest movement. now police in the city to fear that the 1st lady may avoid facing murder charges if she is allowed to travel into neighboring south africa my aside to bonnie is charged for her alleged role in the killing of the prime minister's 1st wife back in 2017 to bonnie turned herself in after weeks on the run the prime minister thomas to body has said he'll resign following pressure from his party over the investigation
