10:01 pm
jim with all this is al-jazeera live from london also coming up. we should be straightforward thing we should give you the. democrats dismiss charms denials about the offensive comments which of john calmed them nation from around the world . warning syria's increased attacks will spark a new wave of migration as government claims continue to bomb deescalation so. after months of uncertainty a breakthrough in talks to form a new coalition government in germany. well their fair warm welcome to the program after months of political posturing the u.s. president on trumpets decided to extend the suspension of sanctions against iran one last time but officials say he wants the iran nuclear deal strengthened with
10:02 pm
a follow on agreement in one hundred twenty days or the u.s. will withdraw the wave us part of the twenty fifteen iran nuclear deal that was brokered by world powers but the u.s. congress requires the president to reaffirm the agreement every ninety days of the last deadline in october chom declined to certify iran's compliance but congress didn't act to reimpose sanctions and even though the president will not sign off on the nuclear deal new sanctions will be imposed on fourteen individuals and entities for human rights abuses and supporting iran's weapons programs well let's get more on this from allen fish eggs in washington d.c. hi there alan so is this what trump was expected to do. well that's what he's wanted to do for a long time whether or not it was expected is another question certainly we know that he thinks this is a bad deal he said that many times even though the feeling is in washington that he's never read it so what does actually mean well it's not the collapse of the
10:03 pm
deal because many other countries signed it as well and the whole idea of reviewing it every ninety days is something that was put into the american bill really to try and see to barack obama there were people who were very unhappy with what was going on so what he said is next time it comes i want receptor fired what does that mean recertifying the deal means that the economic sanctions that are in place on iran at the moment lifted because of the deal will be put back in place that he then says what i want to see is some sort of negotiation not directly with the iranians but with our european allies on how we extend this agreement and one of the things that he's very keen on is the fact that this deal has got a ten year window the sunset clause is what they call it he wants to see that go and he wants to see this continue indefinitely he's also said that he wants to see congress come up with a new plan as well on how they deal with reset of a cation he wants to make sure that iran's. ballistic missile program is tied into
10:04 pm
the nuclear program as well to try and do all that in one thousand days is going to be incredibly difficult so if in ninety days don't trump says absolutely not recertifying there will be a small window but of course the other european allies and those who negotiated the deal with iran aren't necessarily tied into what the americans do they don't have to snap back on sanctions so this could cause a great deal of confusion in the international community in one thousand days time and alan we've got this situation have a way where we've got these sanctions but they're being imposed now on individuals . that's right these are non-nuclear sanctions these are sanctions that the tacking on to people and individuals and organizations that they think are responsible for what they see attacks against human rights and also freedom of expression the person who has been most high profile person has been targeted it is mr law and johnny who is the head of the judiciary and. law and johnny and he is
10:05 pm
also the brother of other law and johnny who is the speaker of the house of the americans believe that this is targeting the iranian regime right at the very top they're also targeting the supreme council for cyberspace because they believe that the blocked a number of western news sites during the recent protests and so they're being sanctioned as well but these are all more nuclear sanctions these are not related to the deal what the americans see is that they have spoken to the european allies explain what they would like to see and they see those discussions are quite far on what those discussions are are quite far on with the americans explaining what they would like what we saw of course in the last twenty four hours of the european sitting around the table in brussels saying we think this deal is working quite well and therefore we're not minded to change it in any way at the moment and pressure live from washington d.c. alan thank you. well president trump has denied reports that he used offensive language to describe haiti el salvador and countries in africa he's alleged to have
10:06 pm
made the comments during a white house meeting on draft immigration legislation the claims of smarts around the world including from the united nations can but he has more. surrounded by members of the african-american community at a white house ceremony honoring the civil rights icon dr martin luther king donald trump made no apology for his alleged racist comments a day earlier. part of a series of early morning tweets donald trump denied media reports that he had called haiti el salvador and african countries shitholes during a meeting with senators on immigration but he did admit the language used was tough he also denied saying anything derogatory about haitians other than haiti is obviously a very poor and troubled country we've got time to do but democratic senator dick
10:07 pm
durbin present at the meeting says the president did say it and called trump's words vile and racist hate filled with which it is said there were people in the statements made by the president have caused international outrage prompting reaction from the spokesman of the high commissioner of the united nations these shocking and shameful comments from the president united states. i'm sorry but there's no other work around can use. the reaction from african countries was equally strong i've never been to the guy but. he's not going to expected from some would yield is neutral going to from drugs. standard procedure back in the united states members of the president's own republican party are also distancing themselves from the statement it is incomprehensible that these words
10:08 pm
came out of the mouth of the president of the united states of america a country that was founded on. being free from discrimination the calls for the president to apologize for his remarks are intensifying inside and outside the united states but for now it appears that apology is unlikely we can many how could joins us now live from the white house hi there kimberly so we see members of his own party distancing themselves but what about ordinary americans you know they are raised are they just fifty eight well this country has had a persistent divisions along racial lines also along political lines for some time and certainly these comments are not helpful they do nothing to unite the country but at the same time you know the irony in all of this the fact that the president is may has been accused of making these comments something he denies it comes when
10:09 pm
there was already a plan ceremony at the white house to honor dr martin luther king a civil rights icon in the united states is certainly made for some uncomfortable moments certainly you saw there the president did not apologize in the oval office as he was surrounded by prominent members of the african-american community including dr martin luther king's nephew i had a chance to speak to him and he said that he sees this as a teaching moment for the president. because i honestly don't think the president trump is a racist i think he's racially uninformed. but i don't think that he's a racist you know in the traditional sense that we thought of that does not mean that i condone. you know his muslim bin and his policies but i don't think that he's a racist i think truly he's either racially uninformed or racially ignorant and can really is there any sense whether the negative feedback of the the i wage from some
10:10 pm
people a fixed you know personally or does it in some way kind of act as a rocket fuel for more controversial commentary. you know what it's really hard to answer that question i think that the from observing the president he is certainly not politically savvy i think that he's often surprised at times by the reaction some of his comments get because for so many years particularly as a businessman in new york city he was surrounded by yes men for lack of a better word people that would praise him continually so sometimes i think he is a little bit surprised by some of the pushback at the same time there is also a significant portion of the united states that is comfortable with what the president has said that feels that he's saying what is on the minds of many americans despite the fact that it is uncomfortable and vulgar but there are also those two in the united states that recognize that there is
10:11 pm
a need to move forward that these comments are not helpful because it does not heal the painful racial divisions that exist in the united states that has taken a long time to advance in terms of of moving forward and there is fear that this is a setback what there is also a fear that this is a setback of is the fact that less than a week the government is set to shut down over funding and the crux of all of this is this comment was made as both democrats and republicans are trying to come together to get a deal on immigration within that funding bill and that is certainly making that accomplishment ever that much harder committee how can they live from washington d.c. can really. well trump is also counsel to visit to london to open the new u.s. embassy here he said it's because he doesn't approve of barack obama selling off the building even though the decision to move the embassy was announced by george w. bush's administration from london need barker has the story. the building at the center of a new trouble with the storm finishing touches it being made to the u.s.
10:12 pm
embassy south of the river thames away from the heart of the city but the american president's not happy the reason i canceled my trip to london he wrote is that i'm not a big fan of the obama administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in london for peanuts only to build a new one for one point two billion dollars deal the embassies now expected to be opened by u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson next month from the street like many other u.s. embassies around the world it's a giant forty five box this one happens to be surrounded by a moat it's also somewhat different it's apparently very green topped with solar panels and the screens that designed to aid climate control is also taking shape in an area of urban regeneration that according to some is a little bit more evocative of the previous u.s. administration than the present war and that could be the problem the mare of london sadique khan drew his own conclusions from trump's decision many londoners
