4:05 pm
meanwhile, in a surprise move, the trump administration and the guatemalan government signed what the white house says is a safe third country agreement friday, despite widespread condemnation of the plan by human rights experts and injunctions by a guatemalan court that halted the agreement court that halted the agreement from going ahead without approval from congress. the agreement would require asylum-seekers who journey through guatemala en route to the united states to apply for asylum in guatemala instead of at the u.s.-mexico border. it would primarily affect hondurans and seven torrents. the signing of the deal took place following threats from trump last week to impose tariffs and other penalties on guatemala. legal challenges are expected in both the u.s. and guatemala. on saturday, hundreds of guatemalans gathered outside the presidential palace protesting the agreement and demanding the resignatation of president jimmy morales. president trump announced that sunday dan coats, the director of national intelligence, has resigned. coats and trump have clashed over mueller's investigation and trump's frequent attacks on
4:06 pm
intelligence a agencies. earlier this month, coats appointed shelby pierson as a new election security czar. trump said he would nominate texas congressman and staunch ally john ratcliffe to replace coats. trump was reportedly pleased by ratcliffe's questioning during last week's house judiciary hearing with robert mueller, in which ratcliffe tells the former special counsel, "nowhere does it say that you were to conclusively determine donald trump's innocence or t that the special counsel report should determine whether or not to exonerate him." brazil's far-right president jair bolsonaro threatened journalist glenn greenwald with possible imprisonment saturday following recent reporting by greenwald's news websitete the intercept implicating justice minister sergio moro in a possible plot to smear and convict former brazilian president luiz inacio lula da silva. speakingng to a reporter, bolsonaro said greenwald could not be deported because he was married to a brazilian but that he might be imprisoned instead. journalists and press freedom activists blasted bolsonaro's threats and greenwald responded via twitter -- "conontrary to w what the preset
