4:20 pm
a while that we're really in a vicious circle where. a resolution a provocation cation that is illusion than another provocation and we were contemplating as many people raised an issue that we have to think maybe out of the books so at the moment then it does seem that the current sanctions and military drills are failing to bring about a positive bright three on the pinch. this is the most stringent set of sanctions on any country in a generation. these sanctions will cut deep with. today's resolution builds on what were already the deepest cutting sanctions ever leveled against north korea those sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen.

supporting them gathered in front of his town hall demanding to meet the mayor many of them accuse the mayor of corruption in the us nor in safety regulations at the camp soon the demonstration is joined by various nationalist nationalists screech to an attempted to storm the building police responded to gas as they tried to disperse the crowd. there are. i. i. i i i. know us president donald trump's critics have been a relenting since he took office and it seems now even some of his supporters aren't happy with his policies this is down to trump being unable to deliver on key
4:24 pm
campaign promises including the border with mexico on thursday did tweet though that is that it is being built and that existing fences are being renovated but that isn't enough the samir a car reports make america great again the slogan many trump supporters chose to stand behind wearing his signature maggot hats with pride. and now they're burning down words burke america's great. we love trouble we love true up. several campaign promises leave me no choice. so why are they angry all in their eyes trump has softened his tough stance on immigration one of his key campaign promises he's now. a deal with democrats to protect young undocumented migrants and there's no guarantee he's actually going to
4:25 pm
build his infamous border wall with mexico what building the wall we're building the wall folks we're building we're going to build a wall and mexico is going to pay for the wall for a while and we'll see how it works. and we're going to get the border security is part of that was the beginning of what but something. trumps bipartisan outreach seems to be the final straw for its most ardent supporters in return for this concession the president received nothing no end to chain migration the president isn't even getting a border wall though he insists it's all somehow get one later possibly if we're not getting a wall i'd prefer president pence at this point who doesn't want trump and peached critics are appealing trump's attempts to try and democrats as a transformation to a normal president. but this transformation might come across as confusing to both his supporters and his opponents donald trump supporters and i don't speak for all

of them but. they expected donald trump to actually accomplish significant pieces of legislation and now here we are in the middle of september and there's not a lot of concrete to show for donald trump's time in office he hasn't managed to get a lot of people confirmed in key positions so i think we have to view donald trump as a young presidency as a presidency where the people who elected him elected a disruptor people are growing frustrated among his supporters and obviously they're saving anger and resentment among his opponents i think it's high time to actually see our concrete bills that address the core structural problems inside our country which households address humans address for some reason our washington d.c. crowd doesn't want to address that's what we want to see people are becoming impatient there's a lot of talk where's the action where the results. so the question is who will trump choose to please his base which carried him to the oval office or his critics
4:27 pm
. well one thing is for sure he certainly can appeal to both. parties washington d.c. . brings you up to date thanks being with the saving mornings in half and. make this manufacture consent to stick to the public well. when the ruling class isn't protect themselves. the family. be the one. making the middle of the room sick. to lose. the real news.
