8:01 pm
a fists bump for the crown prince joe biden is engender the 1st american president to fly directly from israel to saudi arabia. earlier in the occupied westbank, president biden met the palestinian leader and reaffirmed us support for 2 state solution ah, on carry johnston. this is also 0 live from also coming. should anchors prime minister and ela wick, i'm a singer, is sworn in as acting president of to months. a protest forced his predecessor to flee on donations for drones. we now cut the ro, crowdfunding is playing in ukraine's war efforts. ah, us president joe biden has met to way that saudi king solomon and the crown prince
8:02 pm
. mohammed then saw that on his 1st official visit to the kingdom. he shook hands with the $86.00 ruled monarch of to greeting the prince with a fist bump iden heavily criticized the crown prince during his 2020 presidential campaign for his alleged role in the killing of saudi journalist jamal cash oxy back then he vowed to make saudi arabia, a pariah. the top of biden's agenda is getting at saudi arabia to pump more oil to bring down global prices. barden is also expected to discuss iran and efforts to prevent terran from acquiring nuclear weapons. it's part of a wider drive for greater security corporation. biden is expected to make the pitched regional leaders at her gulf corporation council meeting engender on saturday. we're joining us, herron's g. there's our white house correspondent touch kimberly. how could so kimberly a fist bumped between joe biden. crown prince, mom had been so man, why was this? so symbolic?
8:03 pm
it was symbolic because as you pointed out, many people heavily have criticized joe biden, for even making this trip at all. given that campaign pledge that he was going to essentially, ostracize the saudi kingdom if he became president. so for him to suddenly now make a trip really seems like a back track on that promise. the fact of the matter is, is that it now appears that his moral authority has been eroded, that american human rights values can be negotiable. the reality is, is that when the ca put out that report back in 2018, it suggested that the saudi crown prince may have ordered the killing of the washington post journalist chalka shoji. and this is something that joe biden said very clearly. he believed that he would potentially bring up with the crown prince, that he would be very strong in terms of defending human rights in his meetings,
8:04 pm
which we should point out are taking place right now. we're not going to get to see that. we don't know if that's actually going to happen. so we have to take his word for it. but the bottom line is, is that there are a lot of people that aren't very happy about this meeting. taking place at all. the white house is aware of it, they're aware of the optics, and they know that it won't work well for the american people to see this president shaking hands with some of the cia says may have ordered the killing may be a murderer. so the white house is decided, a fist bump is appropriate instead, and the bottom line too is that in the end you have to say the main reason for present biden strip is oil. absolutely, because the bottom line is, is that americans believe they're paying too high prices for fuel, and this is hurting americans when inflation is at a 40 when your high 9 point one percent this week, the president is very unpopular right now. as a result of that high fuel costs,
8:05 pm
high food prices, high rent mortgage costs, marathons are struggling, and they also see their president absent right now. not dealing with that on the home front. so the president needs to address this. and if he's not going to address it at home, he better be addressing it here in saudi arabia. so that's what he's talking to the kingdom about pumping more oil to bring down fuel costs. but already the white house is down playing expectations. in fact, the white house press secretary, courage on pierre, said to reporters on air force, wine in that historic flight from israel to saudi arabia. that in fact, don't expect any announcement on oil. they're going to discuss it, but any actions will come from opec possibly in the coming weeks. so the president comes back empty handed. that is not going to look good. kimberly, how could our white house correspondent, thank you very much need for them. now before leaving for saudi arabia present biden, that traveled to the occupied westbank. varden promised either for protest in hospitals
8:06 pm
. he told the palestinian preston to ma, who the bus at the time was not yet right to try to restart a peace process with the israelis. however, he reminded his house that he had been one of the earliest supporters of a 2 state solution. my commitment to that goal of a to stay solution has not changed. and all these years to states along a 967 lines were mutually agreed to swaps remain the best way to achieve equal measure of security prosperity, freedom and democracy for the palestinians as well as israelis, palestine, and people deserve a state of their own. that's independent, sovereign, viable, and contiguous. you know, there must be a political horizon at the palestinian people can actually see, or at least feel. we can allow the hopelessness cecile away the future that so many of worked toward for so long. so even if the ground is not right at this moment,
8:07 pm
to restart negotiations, united states and my administration will not give up on trying to bring the palestinians, israelis and both sides closer together. or her non us raleigh is a former executive committee member of the palestine liberation organization. she says biden hasn't offered any solutions for palestine. they keep paying lip service to the 2 states. anderson to speak to someone standing outside and they be ready to continue to destroy it. building more supplements, stealing an action, violating international law, and then this, you know, we are for the solution. so we've done our nation. the issue is not never been up and they should actually what are they doing? and of course, we keep reminding people to spend solution. it's a major compromise. and it based on the confession by the finish, getting people to accept this not understand where there's always been the one say
8:08 pm
that my inclusive but since i want to maintain it state and us wants to maintain security iron commitment and as a jewish state. and since the president himself declared themselves, and then it says that it here that many different of the implement any of the statements given and that she has a bourbon. blessed people, i think the 10 finished and you know, we can talk again that i can give you a few handouts that you're in prison is going to be through. you might be able to move within a larger area and so on your, my, for g, which has been a couple of years ago. so use goods to show lanka now where the former prime minister running wick, i'm a senior,

8:11 pm
basically the spongy buck, 70 time in the car. will i spent 3 days waiting for fuel? i'm very happy about roger boxes resignation, but i don't think the mix president will be any better whoever this person is. still standing in cusack, you know, i've been living here for 3 d. m and my mother just brought some food and he is not the only one a 1000000 had been waiting for resignation. it seems like many of the beginning a many now with his on a contract, gama is a senior lecturer at the university of jeff insure lanka. he says there will be further instability if with him a single continues as president. this is going to be completely unacceptable, not just to the protesters, but the entire country,
8:12 pm
ronald promising. i was completely defeated in the last election. he could not even with his own volume rent receipt. and the party that he led, which had rule the country for many decades, was reduced to one seat, a proportionate presentation seat to which he came into parliament. so that's likely to be another wave of protests. and not only that, a backlash against the liberals, he represents if he is made president, but he seems determined to hook or crook to become president. so as soon as he became acting a president, he has legitimized the military. he has even brought the board of investments and the independent bodies under the military has a way because he has no political base. he has no social base and is now relying on the military, which is very dangerous in terms of what that might mean to the participation went to freedom in this country. so on july 20, unless better based on prevails on the poly meant to keep the model we might be
