domestic politics as the president apparent why i sat and comfortably in the oval office u.s. president donald trump railed against the democrats push to impeach him in congress for his dealings with ukraine's president it's a witch hunt it's a sham it's a hoax nothing was done wrong 0 was done wrong it's a scam it's something that shouldn't be allowed and it's a very bad thing for a country and you're trivializing impeachment and i tell you what someday there will be a democrat president and there will be a republican house and i suspect they're going to remember that objection the committee is a journey. but democrats argue trumpet used his presidential powers for political gain the house judiciary committee voted to approve 2 articles of impeachment against president trump the vote along party lines allege trump withheld military
aid in order to pressure ukraine to dig up dirt on a political rival former vice president joe biden trumps also accused of obstructing congressional oversight into the matter for the 3rd time in a little over a century and a half. the house judiciary committee has voted articles of impeachment against the president for abuse of power. and obstruction of congress a vote to officially of ph trump is expected next week in the house of representatives he'll become just the 3rd president in u.s. history to be impeached tromped was visibly angry following approval of the charges against him lashing out at those he believes have done him wrong like the woman overseeing the impeachment house speaker nancy pelosi she's a liar and others a dishonest fake media tolerable f.b.i. people crooked hillary a fighting mood morphing into strategy spotted on the white house campus on friday
trucks personal attorney and ally rudolph giuliani it's a signal trump is pushing to call witnesses and expand the impeachment process he says has been politically biased against him even as the republican leader mitch mcconnell is pushing for a swift trial in the senate i think they're giving the signal that this is really just a show trial that senator mcconnell knows where the votes are and knows how this is going to come out and he wants to have a very short proceeding so that they can move past this quickly but for in a tory asli thinskinned president the personal humiliation of a looming impeachment in the house of representatives appears to have only intensified donald trump's desire to fight back in the u.s. senate in an attempt to clear his name can really help get al jazeera the white house when mike hanna joins us now with more from washington and so mike it was obvious
a historic move today moves the process on and terms of impeachment charges against the president tell us more about reaction from the white house. well the absolute fury in the white house says he saw in kimberly's package the president to see the ng with anger clearly deeply upset by the decision expected as it was and certainly you heard as well from his personal attorney rudy giuliani who was tweeting at from the white house this morning criticizing those who decided on impeachment and decided on the articles of impeachment so generally from all corners of the white house absolute outrage at the fact that these articles of impeachment have been approved what about within the house of representatives itself obviously it was always expected that the house controlled by the democrats would reach this conclusion but it has been a very contentious partisan debate. well
a very partisan debate indeed and the voting of course in the judiciary committee went strictly along party lines which is the way possibly that the vote in the house is going to go once again democrats have a majority in the house so it is exceedingly likely that the articles of impeachment will be passed but then it all comes to a grinding halt in effect because the republicans are in majority in the senate and if it does remain within party lines then certainly the trial in the senate is not going to find president trump guilty in any way so this whole situation the whole impeachment process has gone along party lines from the very beginning it's not clear at any stage where that there will be any break in the parties either on the democrat side or the republican side to go against their fellows however it must be pointed out too that the house speaker nancy pelosi has made very clear that she will not give any direction to democrats in the house to vote whereas the
republican money minority leader insists that republicans must vote against these articles of impeachment so democrats getting a free hand no whip in effect republicans insisting that the delegates must follow the party line thank you very much mike hanna in washington. in other developments the supreme court has agreed to hear president all trumps appeals in 3 separate cases to prevent his financial records including his tax returns from being made public the hearings will commence in march with a decision expected by the end of june in the midst of the 2020 presidential election various democratic led house of representative committees have submitted subpoenas for transfer manchu records as part of corruption investigations is the 1st president in more than 4 decades not to voluntarily make his tax records public well of course the other big story from washington is the trade war between the u.s. and china easing slightly with a new agreement just before another set of targets was due to kick and it's off the
chinese trade is little hope that they might be able to make the most of the busy christmas season between e.u. reports now from. a christmas want to land in southeast china bias from all over the world come to this market to city the festive season decorations. but this year it's not to marry bright they didn't hear you say the trade with the united states is bad for business and letting us know. business is not as good as it used to be there are more and more sellers and fewer and fewer buyers i can barely make a living no. but christmas has arrived early for decent playas with chinese and u.s. negotiators announcing they will sign what's called a phase one deal soon delayed extra tariffs on $156000000000.00 worth of chinese products including christmas trees tinsel and a range of other goods however adolescents want any agreement is only
a temporary truce not an end to the trade war they might be able to reach a mild is small trade deal but in terms of the stuff both sides really want the us really want china to get rid of this drug policy are to create a leveling playground for foreign companies this is not going to. any time soon so many chinese manufacturers expected agreement is likely to be too little too light extra duties imposed earlier this year some as high as 25 percent have already forced many factories to scale down production and fire stuff these workers have been on had since the trade war began and with good reason the bicycle industry is one of the worst affected by an increase in tyrants and distracted the lies on the never going to buy it so by. late supplied bicycles to major u.s. retailers including wal-mart and says a rise in target has caused sales to drop by about 20 percent we lost soul. our
shares told this person we're still what we want to see how the person was one of. those here because this is a 1st year for christmas was that for the. party. in order to keep going during difficult times this bicycle make it is relocating some production to cambodia and then asia it's back in many suppliers have already started moving their focus away from the u.s. towards new markets in the middle east and africa. lasts a few months but chinese exporters expect the children between beijing and washington to remain for many christmases to come. katrina al-jazeera even china. british prime minister barak's johnson's conservative party has secured a landslide victory in the general election johnson claims the decisive result
gives him a powerful new mandate to take person out on january 31st charlie angela has our report. boris johnson is welcomed back to downing street. after the conservatives radically reconfigured britain's political map with their biggest majority since 1000 into the 2nd i'm proud to say that members of our new one nation government a people's government will set out from constituencies that have never returned a conservative m.p. for 100 years and yes they will have been able we mandate from this election to get done and we will honor that mandate by general the 31st striking a more grateful note johnson thank labor voters for swapping sides of his promise now to embrace all and deliver grex it i say thank you for the trust you have placed in us and in me. and we will work round the clock to repay
your trust and to deliver on your priorities with a parliament that works for you i but a group of young protesters gathered near downing street projecting its vision and briefly clashing but the pay was hanging by the outcome in which the conservative party took dozens of labor seats from the country's industrial north and midlands to the top thank you very much for the labor leader jeremy corbyn it's a rejection of his vision for the party and he says he will not stand in another general election i did everything i possibly could in order to bridge the divide between those that voted to leave and those that voted remain because at the end of the day they're going to live in a country where we're going to need that investment for the future we're going to have if this government stays in office more homelessness more divisions and more a bigger gap between the richest and the poorest it was
a bad result thing for the pro remain liberal democrats their leader joe swinson unseated her constituency says she will step down immediately i'm proud that liberal democrats have been the unapologetic voice of remain in this election giving people the chance to choose to stop breaks that. obviously it hasn't worked for boris johnson his brief time in office has been marked by repeated defeats of parliament legal interventions and desertion from his own party this result is better than he could have hoped for but his simplistic election promise to get bricks it done will now be put to the test if you post and lead the country through the most momentous transition since the 2nd world war charlie and to al-jazeera and . now in our stories are following international aid agency action against hunger saying that an armed group that kidnapped humanitarian workers in nigeria's north east claims that it killed 4 hostages the group was abducted in july near the town

day but it's almost certainly not going to be the final days like to spread into the week and i just read in the press conference with the africa saying there are too many red lines is too much concern here this is going to go on and on let's get straight to the press remove these conferences jennifer morgan from greenpeace and work through our system to the stage where i think we still have a situation where the governments here are not listening actually to what the scientists are telling them what their people are telling them there's a text on the table that just does not show the urgency that people are facing and the situation of the world right so we got some of the big of the big developed nations we've kind of stepped back from the paris agreement of it right well everybody is still in but what you're seeing is countries like saudi arabia countries like brazil well and certainly developed countries like the u.s. and australia are here trying to pull things back so the small island nations the
africans who is very existence depends on this are angry they are getting a bit they are desperate and away so in the final hours we just have to get the european union and them to work together to push back these fossil fuel interests ok we've seen some progress on that we just mentioned in the program just know how hopeful are you that that's going to inspire and wishing him well i i am hopeful that the european union will come in and drive things i'm less hopeful that this process is yet able to really respond to what people are calling for it's too captured by fossil fuel interests there's not enough access and discussion here so it needs to throw that lifeline out to the youth of the world that says we're hearing you and thus far they seem pretty deaf and finally this is all about ambition for 2020 for next year when this conference goes to absolutely countries here need to commit that they are going to come back go to glasgow increased action that's consistent with the science with one point. 5 degrees and that they're going

in an emergency and it would seem many many many years apart to be using this for a perfect phone call where the president of that country said there was no pressure whatsoever didn't even know what we were talking about it was perfect the relationship is perfect i've done much more for them than obama did for them it's a scam it's something that shouldn't be allowed all over here boris johnson says person needs to start the process of healing the breaks that divide after winning the country's general election with a resounding victory it's conservative party won a majority of 80 seats giving him a clear mandate for the country to leave the e.u. the opposition labor party lost seats and a state of jeremy coleman says he will resign but only once a successor has been chosen meanwhile the leader of the liberal democrats joe swenson has already stepped down after losing her seat as an m.p. to an advance by the probably dependents scottish national party.
