a month. and besides this the commission will continue to work hard towards a full and timely implementation of the withdrawal agreement we stand by our commitments out there as paul brennan has more on this now from westminster. the last line of the lane statement i thought was important we stand by our commitments she said and i think that goes to the crux of the exhaust ration that the european union is feeling having seen the british sides in the negotiations essentially go back on the pre-agreed terms of the withdrawal agreement and having given the british 3 weeks to amend the internal markets bill and by the end of september with take out those controversial clauses the fact that they didn't meant it was inevitable that on the 1st of october underlaying would have to come out with this statement whether it will inevitably mean a day in court is by no means a foregone conclusion there are plenty of ways that this can be avoided 1st of all

10:21 pm
secretary kaley mcenaney would definitively on ambiguously and without the flexion . condemn white supremacy and the k.k.k. because the feeling is in the united states that the president has kind of been on both sides of the fence on this issue so to set the matter straight they were asking for a very firm clear declarative statement the press secretary wouldn't do this instead she referred to the president's statements including his statement in the debate where when asked to condemn he said sure but then went on to tell a group known as the proud boys to stand by or stand down so this was where the point of contention went back and forth between reporters saying that the president's record on this is mixed but the white house press secretary once again refused to have kind of a definitive answer the one that reporters were looking for and that's what led to the conflict and the hostilities really how the
10:22 pm
president. well it could hurt the president in that this is an america that's divided and right now the president seems to be playing both sides it's very clear that this president is looking to try and win over voters of color what he's done is he's tried to say look at before the pandemic we had historically low unemployment for key minority groups latinos african-americans but the problem is they want to see this clear declarative statement they feel the president has not done that the press secretary had the opportunity and also failed to do so and so what the president now really is that risk of is maybe alienating both groups the both groups he is trying to attract that being those that would support those type of policies which many would say are racist and those that are voters of color so 2 this is a president that's behind in the polls by last count it was by 8 percent he needs
