5:00 am
across the world so no matter how you take it. we'll bring you the news and current of the matter to al-jazeera. this is. a learned welcome i am giving apology or watching the news hour live from doha it's good to have your company coming up in the next 60 minutes. the u.s. house condemns president donald trump for racially charged comments against 4 congress women. if we are united on the insight no body will divide us from the outside. germany's defense minister becomes the 1st a woman to hold the european union's top job. the u.k.
5:01 am
government is accused of discriminating against visa applicants from africa. and the u.s. imposes sanctions on some of me and marched top military officers it's a reaction to the ongoing growing get crisis. the u.s. house of representatives has voted to condemn quote racist comments by presidents on a trump against for minority congress women now the resolution was approved largely on party lines with only 4 republicans backing the democratic measure on sunday president trump posted tweets telling the for politicians to go back where they came from and he's refused to let up that's despite growing criticism both at home and abroad mike hanna is in washington with the latest for us so mike can you tell us how this is played out in. congress. but certainly for democrats it was an
5:02 am
opportunity a rare opportunity to publicly censure the president and place on record their disapproval of that and discussed in some cases at the language that he uses for republicans it was also a rare opportunity but one in which they may not have enjoyed and that is an opportunity to go on the record the republicans generally have supported president trump they have not criticized his comments through thick concern on this occasion however they were forced to go on the record in support of the president's controversial statements only for republicans joining the democrats in censoring the president one of them incidentally the only black republican within the house so certainly it was a day of great drama and this is how it went without objection the motion to reconsider is laid on the taper the vote went largely along party lines only for
5:03 am
republicans joining house democrats in their rebuke of president trump it was a rare occasion on which all in the house were forced to go on the record in response to intemperate comments made by the president these comments from the white house are disgraceful and disgusting and that comment are racist the vote was delayed by republicans who attempted to have the accusation of racism made by the house speaker introducing the bill struck off the record i urge you if you go and you know that the balance of my house is going to the general speaker of the house if you would like to rephrase that comment i had cleared my remarks as a parliamentarian before i read them the unprecedented argument delayed the vote for hours many republicans clearly more angered by the speaker's words than by those tweeted by the president zuma making that demand of the words be taken down. request for jones words are on parliamentary question to be taken out despite the
5:04 am
republican fury a vote was taken and the house ruled the speaker's words should be kept on the record then another moment of drama for the 1st time a formal attempt in the house to move articles of impeachment against the president impeaching donald jiang trump president of the united states of misdemeanors the move is likely to intensify what has been at the bait among house democrats about impeachment more than 80 representatives are on record as urging such a move others including the house speaker have been arguing that it would be better to continue investigating the president through house committees rather than risk a failed move to impeach therefore donnel john traub by causing such horror to the society of the united states is
5:05 am
unfit to be president and warrants impeachment trial and removal from office a decision may non need to be made one way or the other on my can it's been a captivating few days in washington for good or bad but the house the rest of the country reacting to this. well there has been widespread condemnation of the president's original tweets that went out on sunday shortly before he went off to play golf and certainly there has been massive debate throughout the country about the nature of these particular tweets the racial connotation that many believe that they contain and which the house now says they did contain so this has been an ongoing debate for republicans a real problem though they are well aware that in the elections coming up next year many of those in their constituencies in the areas they represent would also have been very strongly disapproving of the manner and the words that president trump
5:06 am
used so this of various issues to the source of something that's not going to go away it's going to play out in the months ahead but republicans in a very difficult position in the course of the day forcing in effect to go on the record noted no doubt by those who live in the areas that they represent but then again for democrats a very difficult time coming as that motion off impeachment that was introduced at the end of the day's proceedings certainly going to ratchet up the debate within the democrats in terms of what are they going to do next the house speaker has been attempting to push away this debate now she has got to decide that democratic leaders have got to decide where are they going to go point pietschmann or not whether they're going to refer this to a judiciary committee whether they going to table it which would anger many democrats within their caucus or indeed whether they do nothing in which case within 2 days 2 legislative days the motion for impeachment may be introduced in
5:07 am
congress thank you very much mike hanna in washington. less than 24 hours after new u.s. asylum rules went into effect they're facing their 1st challenge immigrant advocacy groups have filed 2 separate cases they say the policy violates the mystic and international law it is course migrants from central america to ask for asylum in one of the countries that they travel through and if that claim is rejected then they'll be able to apply for safe haven in the u.s. it is part of president transplant to stop the flow of migrants the european parliament has narrowly elected to ursula under law and as president of the european commission the german defense minister will become the 1st woman to hold the post to ensure places john claude younger in the vendor so how has more from sharpsburg. approval from the european parliament vote for the long term becomes the 1st woman to hold the e.u.'s top job as commission

vigils was quite interesting but again there's no cost thing there wasn't many details in place and they'll be quite knows if this is actually were to happen we'll have to see how those will affect the amount of style of a still carry over behavior from there that may have cause allegations and i believe there were some allegations of problems with using sort of contractors funds on approach projects which in your pink case may cause severe problems the british pound has plunged to a 27 month low against the dollar markets are pricing sharply higher risk of britain leaving the european union on october 31st without any transition trading deals they're concerned by rhetoric from the 2 candidates who are vying to be the next prime minister the favorite boris johnson and his rival jeremy hunt are both hardening their stance on negotiations with brussels that's despite the e.u. saying they were drawn agreement has been finalized and will not be renegotiated.

5:17 am
see as china's efforts to tighten control. and support this former world champion claims he's set to fight one of the biggest names in boxing. the united states government is imposing its strongest sanctions to date on main marse top military leaders this is in response to the mass killing of one good muslims in 2017 sanctions target me and marks commander in chief and several other senior military brass washington says the government hasn't taken any action against those responsible for human rights abuses matthew smith is the co-founder and chief executive officer of fortify rights and he joins us live from washington d.c. thank you very much for being on the program my comp aoa says the u.s. is the 1st country to target military leaders to single them out and name them. do
5:18 am
you think that this is this sets a precedent for other countries to follow and will this be effective. thanks david actually the u.s. government is not the 1st government to target military leaders however it is the 1st government to target senior general men on lying the commander in chief governments around the world have taken several measures including the us government to apply certain sanctions against people responsible for genocide this is the 1st time however that a government has come out and acknowledged senior general men on lyings responsibility for those crimes and that is significant but there is certainly more that the u.s. government could and should do and what impact will this have well you know sanctions like this or this particular set of sanctions really only prevents these generals from entering the united states but you know it's good news if this
5:19 am
is the 1st measure that the united states government will take in addressing genocide and be in margins the right to get people it's bad news if this is all busy that secretary pompei in the administration are planning to do so we are hopeful that they'll do more and the impacts can be serious this will flag the responsibility of these individuals for international prosecutors for example the international criminal court it will give pause to business leaders going to me and more in doing business with the me i'm our military or military owned enterprises so there can be significant ripple effects it is speaking of the i.c.c. the un investigators have said that the violence against their own hang exhausts warrants prosecution of the top generals for genocide and the international criminal courts has any but look i have any moves been made towards that. there has the chief prosecutor initially requested jurisdiction the i.c.c.
5:20 am
granted that jurisdiction and it's moved from a preliminary exam examination into a preliminary investigation so there are certain steps that the prosecutor has to go through the process that the prosecutor's already gone through with respect to the crimes against her hinges is actually quite fast compared to other situations globally so the prosecutor's office is moving swiftly in this case which should certainly give pause to military generals in myanmar who are still responsible for atrocities that are ongoing and you said that you hope that this steps we've seen in the u.s. so far these sanctions are the 1st step against that mean mean mars general of. the u.s. state department says that this is this will help. the military regime what more that do they need to do to move towards further towards a civilian government well you know i think i should say that there are members of
5:21 am
the civilian government who are also responsible for mass atrocity crimes we would argue in me and maher but apart from that the government now could name these 4 individuals and others under the global magnitsky act that would that would bring forth other significant sanctions against these individuals and there's legislation right now in the us pending legislation that would also enable more sanctions against military owned enterprises and me and maher and. legislators and congress in the united states in washington d.c. should get behind that legislation matthew smith good to speak to you thank you very much thanks to the. former proven president has been arrested in the united states for extradition on corruption charges he is the latest politician caught up in latin america's largest ever corruption scandal
5:22 am
which is centered on a brazilian construction company called bret marianna sanchez has more details from lima. he's been living freely for some time in california and last night his lawyer said that he had spoken with him and there was no indication that little was a aware that this arrest would be imminent but this has been indeed a result of a very intense work by the government which requests that the extradition one year ago also very intense work by the prosecutors the prosecutor's office in peru that is working on the case and that has gone through thousands and thousands of papers paperwork to be able to prove that during the little government between 20012006 there were bribes. paid as well another very important matter in this is that there's been intense work in brazil itself with the carwash investigation the other
5:23 am
bridge scandal has put the man out that the link between peru. government proves companies and all they would have to testify in the old rich case he has given all the information he continues to give out information and a result of this is that this has had peru has been the country most impacted by the scandal. mainly with arrests from the most important politicians in peru to more importantly the house arrest of former president bill. and as we all know of course the suicide of former president alan garcia who killed himself just minutes after all arrived in his home in lima to arrest him really in relation to the case eric farnsworth is the vice president of the council of the americas and he says. shaken the entire region. the tentacles of
5:24 am
the other british investigation and scandals have really literally reached throughout latin america you named any number of countries there are others you could have named as well venezuela certainly cuba there have been allegations in mexico about some of these issues and they go right to the top of some of these countries and what it's done is that it's not just impacted the people who have been accused of corruption obviously but it is also impacted the willingness of the people the voters to continue to support many of their elected officials and some would say have led directly through recent elections to the election of outsider candidate who are elected based on their claims to be not corrupt that is something that i think voters have increasingly been sympathetic to and it is driving elections now across the region so the implications of this are very very broad and very deep anti-government protesters in hong kong are promising to fight on carry alarms government has been forced to withdraw an extradition bill that would have sent suspects to mainland china but many activists say they'll continue to defy
5:25 am
what they call attempts by china to control or to tighten control so well and that has this report. to say yet how those who you know. years among the smoke of the future knock on the golden. all they hoit the light disappears and it starts to get dark as a silent policeman are barking in the deepest places upon kong. the words of a poet sandwich on convey anger grief and resolve can mean the base will show you they only care about policing beginning not the people this is why i am inspired by these people who take to the streets risking their lives to fight for the future of hong kong jason doesn't use his real name and wants to stay anonymous says 22 years ago they're already back to slowly and slowly hong kong. used

5:27 am
a wave of solidarity protesters tell us the 2014 umbrella movement provided a lot of lessons because it led to imprisonment and factions now they've adopted a new wave of dissent a leaderless movement they say is harder for the government to pin down. hong kong is widely seen as the place of constant change and innovation and is one of the world's most visited cities. and many here want to make sure none of that's lost protesters here have adopted a slogan of the late famous martial arts star bruce lee the water my friend the sea like water they'll be fluid and adaptable and accept that what do you see is a fight for fundamental freedoms will be a long term struggle to. 0 hong kong. and

5:29 am
widespread rain so very wet couple days in manila 29 degrees on both days will keep an eye on this storm system because it could well develop into a tropical storm but it will continue produce as heavy rains and again on thursday a fine day in hong kong with a high of 35 degrees celsius then 2 was the southeast about it was born yes march a however where we all seen the weather is farther to the north vietnam thailand and cambodia some very have an extensive rain in the forecast here through wednesday and on into thursday time which is not in singapore on both days 31 in kuala lumpur but again we could have those often showers and thunderstorms for you then pushing across towards india it's been about the north it's also been about bangladesh some to break that again for the next couple of days though what we will see is more rain across much of the north particularly through new poll again through new delhi 32 braincells on wednesday sunny draw a better day there on thursday with a high of 32 and rain for the to the east of the country. the weather

5:31 am
again you know what you've got is there a let me take you through our main stories this hour the u.s. house of representatives has voted to condemn president donald trump for racially charged comments against 4 minority congress women a tribe had told them to go back to where they came from for republicans back the democratic measure. the european parliament has narrowly elected or still have under law and as president of the european commission the german defense minister will become the 1st woman to hold the post when sure places young john paul young.
5:32 am
the united states government is imposing its strongest sanctions to date on me and marched top military leaders it's in response to the mass killings of. 2017 sanctions target me in march commander in chief and several other top tree. ok let's give them not get more on our top story and that's a vote to condemn president trump for racist comments we can speak to bill schneider is live in washington d.c. for us is a political analyst and a professor of public policy at george mason university as always good to have you on the program this vote is largely symbolic but what kind of a significance does it have in can it have any kind of an impact well it's more than symbolic it's a really rather unprecedented vote to condemn the president by the house of congress you don't see that very often and it will make it much more difficult in the future for the president to seek cooperation from congress particularly any
5:33 am
kind of collaboration with democrats who are the ones who are sponsoring. the resolution some republicans joined in but basically what we're seeing is a poisonous party divide made worse by this episode indeed emma you say some republicans did vote for this resolution but. they largely most of them i would hardly follow the party line what kind of a quandary are the public and members and. oh they have a big quandary especially those who come from swing districts in states that have large minority populations like texas and colorado and arizona where republican senators are up for reelection next year if they criticize president trump he comes after them and he gets his base rallied and they could be defeated in a republican primary on the other hand if they show too much support for president trump they're going to lose a lot of support in their larger electorate in the general election they are really
5:34 am
between a rock and a hard place and many are saying that this this is trump's move to galvanize his base. towards the 2020 elections do you think that is that is what's going to happen given how we've seen this escalate. every move he makes his president has to galvanize his base he governs on behalf of his base he's a very unusual president most presidents seek to unite the country seek to create consensus this president governs by dividing he deliberately exploits the division of the country that was there long before he took office it's been building for 50 years he sees it as an opportunity and round it rallies his base in defiance of those who are on the other side it's a very divisive strategy it's resented by a lot of americans and it's unlikely to work so bill on the flip flip side of this can democrats gain anything from this. well they certainly gain unity the
5:35 am
president clearly thought that what he could do here was to put the face of these 4 minority congress women on the democratic party because they tend to be on the left they are on the left they're very radical and he wants that to be the face of the democratic party he runs against but i think it backfired on him what happened was democrats united not behind the views in idiology of these 4 women members of congress but against president trump democrats are simply horrified and scandalized that a president of the united states would deliberately use racist language which is what go back to where you come from means it means you don't belong here and we don't want you here that's horrifying to democrats and he's united the democratic party really solidly against him. another significant action that's come out of this is a motion impeachment was introduced to think this could eventually lead to the president being impeached or at least lead towards that. well the leaders of the
5:36 am
house the democratic leaders in the house know that that's a very risky move the house could vote to impeach the president just about any time he wants one 3rd of the death of the majority party the democrats already have signed on to support a motion of impeachment well if the democrats are pretty solid behind that kind of motion they can impeach the president then he goes to trial and what will happen the senate will support him they will not remove him from office they have a republican majority and republicans are frankly terrified of trump and of his base so he will survive and what will happen well he'll run for re-election next year as a martyr as somebody who they tried to assassinate he will say and as someone who beat them at their own game this is a very risky move if democrats decide to go forward with impeachment and whatever happens it's as always it's interesting times ahead bill schneider great to get
5:37 am
your thoughts and your insight thank you. trump repeatedly mentioned the 2020 alexion and those controversial tweets and some saw that as an attempt to rally his base and to maintain a strong support in the rural midwest john hendren went to livingston county illinois. in the. big leagues a. route 66 the mother road of the u.s. highway system grooves through rural america trunk country voted for donald trump there and then november of 2016 president donald trump's leadership skills are unprecedented. maybe unorthodox the route known as america's main street stretches from chicago to los angeles through missouri kansas oklahoma texas new mexico and arizona even in the states that did not vote for donald trump in 2016 this is where many trump voters live did you support him in 2016 oh yes it is the
5:38 am
path disaffected oklahoma farmers wiped out in the dust storms of the depression followed to elusive hope in john steinbeck's grapes of wrath i'm here can you not see of my and many rural americans in places like pontiac illinois remain hopeful in the past couple of years i think our economy has been booming especially here in our area where we've got a very vibrant downtown we've got route 66 we've got the interstate here so this community has been growing but even here economic threats on the horizon have deemed that hope were in some tough economic troubles in agriculture and when agriculture is a tough economic troubles the rural economy is going to suffer too obviously have been undecided right now here in conservative rural america president trump remains
5:39 am
popular but all the controversy and the growing economic uncertainty have taken. and so has the president's bare knuckles diplomacy especially his trade war with countries that buy what rural america sells right now i think with the tariff on the soybeans and stuff in china and mexico i think it kind of scares people that it could get worse i think some of our. relationships of some of the foreign countries is marginal at best you know if it is one to 10 probably 5 to 6 but trump voters are a stubborn lot we can't necessarily count on all the support he had in 2016 oh i think that he's got to he's got a huge base i mean his base still follows him still believes in him and i think that. that will stand true whether enough voters here along route 66 and elsewhere remain in that base or turn left could decide the election for the
5:40 am
next u.s. president john hendren al jazeera pontiac illinois. a new york police officer whose actions helped spark a national movement against police brutality will not face charges for killing a black man he was trying to arrest the u.s. justice department maybe announcement on tuesday 5 years after the death of eric garner kristen salumi has more. than 60. officer daniel panta layo was caught on video putting eric garner in a choke hold that led to his death police were attempting to arrest are now on charges of illegally selling booze cigarettes in your neighborhood if you're. going to examine it but after what was described as an exhaustive review the department of justice decided the evidence did not meet the high bar required to bring civil rights charges against the officer when we evaluated all of those actions and white
5:41 am
his training and experience. mr gardner size weight and actions to resist arrest and the duration and escalating nature of the interaction we determined that was insufficient evidence garners family and their supporters were quick to have jacked 5 years ago my son said i can't read. it today we can't. because they have let us down. by the way those words i can't breathe became a rallying cry for the black lives matter movement against police brutality after garners death in 2014 bringing thousands to the street in protest. the mayor of new york issued a statement expressing disappointment with the justice department's decision but clearly that wasn't enough for activists and members of their governors family who gathered outside city hall demanding that the mayor now fire officer panda leo
5:42 am
while panta layo won't face criminal charges he could still face disciplinary action by the new york police department but the department is known for protecting its officers. u.s. attorney william barr a trouble appointee approved the decision not to charge panta layo a fact that was not lost on activists and local politicians it's a pretty clearly to communities of color. which on the mystery of the show and yet again they don't give a damn about those protesters are again vowing to hit the streets in a country where race relations are already strained and a city where the mare is running for president as a democrat the pressure to act will be intense kristen salumi al jazeera new york douglas sloan is a senior leader and. that's america's oldest civil law civil rights group and he says police officers across the u.s. need a completely training on how to deal with communities of color. well i think the
5:43 am
message that's being sent out and particular by the u.s. justice department is that black lives don't matter this was a this was caught on tape this was ruled by the new york medical examiner examiner to be in illegally placed chokehold on eric garner eric garner died from compression of the neck and we all saw this and we all saw what happened and not only did the grand jury decline to indict or bring charges but also now we have the department of justice that declining to bring federal charges and declining bring civil rights charges william bar came down and broke the log jam and decided that there would be no federal civil rights charges brought against officer pants alayo so i think this sends a very clear message because this is not the only incident of excessive force used
5:44 am
