but we can continue to keep the negroes to be defense that what you mean by that about malcolm x. and martin luther king face to face on 00. 0. the best is yet to come. trying to rally his supporters but donald trump's 1st campaign event in months brings empty seats and controversy. play watching al jazeera live from doha with me for all still coming up egypt's president puts his military on notice suggesting they may be deployed to intervene in libya one of new york's top prosecutors has been investigating donald trump's
allies finally agrees to step aside after a standoff with the white house. i don't know anyone in the city does not have to pop in and running out of water in zimbabwe environmentalists are pointing the finger at government officials and developments. thank you for joining us donald trump called it the kickoff for his presidential reelection campaign but his 1st rally since the coronavirus outbreak in the u.s. fell short of expectations event in tulsa oklahoma drill smaller than expected crowds and his appearance was mired in controversy with some saying the event posed a huge risk to public health shepparton some reports. that have been reported that this rally was intended not just to enjoys the president's supporters but to lift the spirits of
a man whose crave the adulation of his base. look down you are so lucky i am president. of the trump campaign's hopes of a turnout of 100000 supporters inside and outside this great american comeback rally fell short in front of the president council and is a pretty raw address at the outdoor area big. as of a lack of numbers those who filed into the 20000 capacity arena had their temperatures checked having waived their right to sue the trump campaign if they contract and covert 19 it has been reported that 6 members of the trump advance team have tested positive for the virus and on saturday tells them the location of the rally is a new daily record of infections but the president most caution i'm suggesting throughout his speech the protesters have been causing trouble outside and discouraging attendance but there were a few protesters a new incidents reported before he spoke you are warriors thank you we had surgery
people out there was the usual blame for the chinese too but here with racially offensive language has more names than any disease history. i can. come flu i don't blame for public health officials for the spread of the virus in the us what you do testing to that extent you can find more people are going to find more cases so i said to my people are slow the testing down please the administration officials quickly briefed journalists that the president was just joking as for the unprecedented demonstrations spanning race and close across the country against police violence and systemic racism the president once again presented them as unchecked anti american anarchy and he presented his general election opponent joe biden as a man with a questionable record on race in failing mental health amid these historic protests
if the democrats cave. then the riders will be charge and no one will be safe and no one will have control joe biden who's not the leader of his party joe biden is a helpless puppet of the radical left by far the longest section there was a defense of the president's cautious use of a ramp following his speeches. the west point military academy the week before that had led to speculation about his health it had no handrail it was like it ice skating this event wasn't simply about abusing the president there are a 1000000 people were reported to have registered for the event giving their phone numbers as well as email and whom addresses this is essential information for ensuring turnout in november election especially as a significant proportion of trunk space owns regular voters these events are crucial for the trump campaign is momentum we will. raise.
the rally did seem like a public health experiment what would happen if you packed thousands of people into an indoor arena many refusing to wear or take a minimal precautions for several hours of singing cheering them shouting in a city experiencing a surge in crude 1000 infection we should know in 2 to 3 weeks she every time see elders or eric ham is a political analyst he says it's unlikely president but i skate the controversy surrounding the rally and skates. i think what the president is dealing with right now is the perfect storm the president is still reeling from a kobe kobe 19 outbreak that is only getting worse and even though the numbers tonight simply were not what the president expected there is still a concern a deep worry that those many thousands of people that are in that stadium tonight not only could be carriers but also could spread this virus throughout the country
and that is something that the president is going to have to confront in addition to that as we look at all of the demonstrations over the last $25.00 days that occur and you see be just the enormous crowds many are going to look at this president look at what's taking place and began to wonder if fact if this president can draw audiences in deep red oklahoma no less does that mean that people simply are tuning out his message doesn't mean that the president simply it's an effectual at leading the country out of both of these crises and remember not only is it just a confluence of a pandemic and social and civil unrest but the present in the studio dealing with an economy that's at recession perhaps even great depression levels and right now there is still no no no sense that this president can grapple or address either of these crisis let alone all 3 at one time. and a top federal prosecutor in new york has agreed to step down after
