5:01 pm
neal thanks for tuning in our top story this hour donald trump has dismissed his chief of staff priebus in the latest shake up of the white house team as usual the president broke the news on twitter announcing that homeland security secretary john kelly the job a week ago the white house press secretary sean spicer also abruptly left his position that had been widely expected he had not been appearing at briefings for some time however this missile of the f.b.i. director james comey back in may did come as a shock one of the reasons for that the solution was the intelligence chief humbling of the probe into hillary clinton's use of a private e-mail server while secretary of state before that national security adviser michael flynn was forced to resign over his contacts with russia. but how
5:02 pm
relationships in the white house are starting to resemble a notable t.v. drama between senate investigations and twitter wars the current u.s. presidency has barely gotten the ball rolling but there has been plenty of drama we're our strongest when we're unified. this is a bunch of scumbags. president was being small president it's not presidential at all. but we're all going to. push this country around mr speaker to call for the impeachment of the president boy have they tried i mean every single thing. when i'm finished i think they will absolutely. lately the bipartisan tug of war has shifted to being on the lines of the enemy of my enemy is my friend take attorney general jeff sessions not long ago he was considered one of trump most trusted allies
5:03 pm
whereas democrats were less than impressed he's a man of integrity a man of principle and a man of total utter resolve because the department of justice should be above reproach for the good of the country the attorney general sessions should resign in just a couple of months trying fluffer sessions has turned sour and lo and behold senator chuck schumer is suddenly coming to his defense i am disappointed in the attorney general. he should not have recused himself even if the president has disagreements with him which i think are real found self-centered. and wrong. you don't ridicule him in public apparently there's a thin line between love and hate and that line is basically just a few mean tweet and it works the opposite way as well let's look at former f.b.i. director james comey when he spoke out on the hillary clinton investigation praised his valor while the democrats were far from fleet it took guts for director comey
5:04 pm
to make the move that he made it light of the kind of opposition he had. the f.b.i. director has no credibility oh how the times have changed since he's a showboat he's a grandstander the f.b.i. has been in turmoil you know that i know that the reason that tony was fired was because donald trump wants to cut off any investigation and it's not just politicians who are easily swayed the media follows the changing tide as well george w. bush was slammed by the press and seen as one of the worst american presidents toward the end of his time in office he leaves office the most unpopular president in modern history this president performed so poorly we have a president to transcend at least stupid he is the worst president of my lifetime but a few well aimed comments in an interview turned him into a white house favorite i consider the media media to be indispensable to democracy
5:05 pm
we need an independent media to hold people like me to account it's very funny to the sense of humor is coming well he said oh well respected mr president we want to thank you. even former white house press secretary sean spicer who was one of the media's favorite punching bags for some time is now feeling the love following his resignation rumor has it he may even become a reality t.v. star the political positions are breathtakingly incoherent their scripts are frantic with all due apologies to what is trump's saying we were against it it's like that groucho marx songs is whatever you're for i'm against it it just depends because this isn't about platform. sort of my conviction is not about ideology it's about personality we have two parties in this country. and. the thing is the rule of thumb in washington these days is to keep your enemies both and your friendly is even closer at least until it's more beneficial to turn on the other party washington d.c.
5:06 pm
. the french president has unveiled them vicious plum to rid the country of its makeshift migrant counts better accommodate refugees by the end of the year the put me on. the first back who is to house everybody in a dignified manner by the end of the year i will know more women than men in the streets in the woods last it's a question of dignity a question of humanity but also the fish and see everywhere with the emergency housing is built to welcome them i want ministers of steps for their cases to be examined. last year french police this month the country's most notorious refugee camp the so-called jungle in cali but human rights watch says more than four hundred people are still there living in the open almost a half of them are on the company children the area is used as a launching point for crossing to the u.k. .
5:07 pm
wa wa wa. wa. wa wa. whoa. whoa whoa. whoa whoa whoa i said refugees return to cali again human rights watch is accusing police there of abusing migrants on a routine basis describing it as quote like living in hell the rights groups say pepper spray is used on migrants even in circumstances when they pose no threat police are also accused of confiscating sleeping bags and clothes from the migrants while disrupting access to humanitarian aid well the police admit that they're struggling to cope alone migrants say they feel abandoned by the authorities to spend my six month intelligent as the other one of them came and did this it to all
5:08 pm
the people you'll see in france one american if you prefer the work you had in there maybe build your life then separately in the process enough to know you are in the cease not as an excuse for us normal actually more do we have about six hundred migrants here now and we're expecting more there's a zero tolerance policy towards the settling of migrants and the reconstruction of the jungle the mission of the police is clear migrants must be prevented from sleeping in certain areas and from forming groups there's more and more tension including between the migrants themselves we also have difficulties with the far left with choice to promote a world without borders and without police they are particularly nervous about the actions of the police they try to film in attackers that creates tensions now that we have more work to do we've asked for reinforcements and i've received them from the interior ministry our job is not at all easy his dick. to stop migrants from gathering in certain places. meanwhile reports of dire conditions are also coming
5:09 pm

5:10 pm
suffer in. the city of mats was not prepared for the count there thought it is empty but now there are seven hundred refugees back there again it's becoming a second calais we return to the camp after dark on route our taxi driver tells us about some of the problems. there are a lot of home break ins a lot of aggression they snatch women's handbags but no one talks about that and c.v. the migrants are everywhere are immense. at the camp we find out my quince apparently facing aggression as well from a certain community within the camp. are not. aware of the problems why. fight yes they take your money there. as we speak with another man we're told to stop filming by security guards the people here are hiding from those who are looking for them in their own country
5:11 pm
if you show their faces on t.v. you're putting their lives driskell we don't want journalists here. despite the worsening conditions and other issues both in and out of the camp more people continue to arrive. in ski r.t. mats. now the suspect in friday's stabbing rampage in the german city of hamburg is a known islamist the cording to the country's police the attack left one person dead and half a dozen others injured peter oliver has been following developments well as we find out more information about what unfolded on friday evening in hamburg we've heard from the interior minister of that city states he's described the assailant he's in custody as a known islamised. the suspect was known to authorities there are indications of radicalization as for the motive there is
5:12 pm
a reference to religious motivations on the one hand and islamic motives but on the other hand there are also signs of psychological instability. we do know though is exactly what he did he went into this store he took a kitchen knife from one of the displays in the supermarket opened it from its packaging and then attacked people who were there not attack led to a fifty year old man suffering injuries from which he died while i was drinking coffee when i saw a young man approaching the area he pushed one person off a bike and then stabbed another one near a car and then stopped three more people he was shouting. and brandishing a knife and after that he tried to run away the fact that this suspect was known to police was known to authorities as having connections to radical islamic groups is certainly going to raise questions if we cast our minds back to the end of last
5:13 pm
year and the horrific terrorist attack that took place in berlin whereby a truck was driven into a christmas market that the perpetrator was also known to police as well so questions are going to be raised over just what it means to be on one of these watch lists we do know that the main suspect the person that was arrested at the scene is a. failed asylum applicant which is in turn turning questions again towards angela merkel's policy when it comes to refugees and migrants in seeing many people criticizing her government again for that policy. now with the white house signaling that dollar trump is ready to sign off on the anti russia sanctions bill america's top diplomat has explained the thinking behind the legislation rex tillerson says moscow should know dick greater is there to get relations back on track the near unanimous vote for the sanctions legislation in congress represent
5:14 pm
the strong will of the american people to see russia take steps to improve relations with the united states we hope that there will be cooperation between our two countries on major global issues and these sanctions will no longer be necessary. but there has been reaction russia hit back with country measures on friday it told the united states to cut the number of diplomatic stuff it has in the country by the first day of september last call source said it would seize two u.s. diplomatic properties starting next month now that includes a warehouse in the south of moscow with a hefty area of more than two thousand square meters u.s. diplomats will also be stopped from using their riverside retreat located in one of the capital's parks it was used by stuff members for a barbecue get togethers. meanwhile the russian embassy in the u.s. says puzzled by secretary tillerson statement on the sanctions it washington has
5:15 pm
failed to realize that pressure is not working in relations with moscow former british diplomat craig murray thinks it's a bizarre attempt at sending a positive message it's not the most logical thing to say we want to improve relations therefore we are imposing sanctions to be fair to to listen he's slightly less crazy than many of the people involved in american politics senior level that's not a very high bar the party is slightly less crazy and i think he his statement was trying to be diplomatic and lessen the impact and be less insulting to russia of the he might otherwise have been i think that's why you have a logical statement explaining these sanctions to which was not really any sensible justification at all riots have broken out in east london that story and plenty more right after this.
