Dissecting Trump's Twitter 'Diplomacy'

"Their Israeli for better unusually for worse no more enthusiastic proponent of twitter diplomacy in US President Donald Trump joining us now to dissect a representative few of trump's interestingly punctuated blurts. Is Brian Close political scientist. I author and Washington Post columnist by way of imbuing trump's tweets with a finesse. The ill deserve. They are read by foreign desk producer. You'll engulf on any and all grammatical infelicitous of the fault of the author not the narrator September fifteenth two thousand nineteen mystery missiles target. Saudi oilfields Saudi Arabia. Oil Supply was attacked. There's reason to believe that we know the culprit are locked and loaded depending on verification but are waiting to hear from the kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack and under what terms we would proceed. This is amazing tweet because this is the second time that Donald Trump has issues locked and loaded. The first was when he was saying that he was about to attack North Korea. And it just shows you know the twitter diplomacy made on the fly where nobody believes what trump obsess anymore. You know that He. He is a saying who's behind the attack. People are questioning that and then you have. This claim that he's about to attack them which people again are questioning with good reason that his twitter threats are increasingly erratic and also unfounded and never backed up October. First two thousand seventeen reaching out to Kim Kim Jong UN being nasty Rotman hasn't worked in twenty five years. Why would it work now? Clinton failed. Bush failed and Obama failed. I won't fail. I love this tweet. For several reasons I is that he's has been nice to rocket man hasn't worked in twenty five years. Kim Jung took office in two thousand eleven. So penalized him when he was a child probably wasn't going to be a very fruitful way of conducting diplomacy anyway Clinton and Bush of course did not even deal with Kim Jong into any point and then the second layer of this of course is saying that being nice to him hasn't worked it won't work now. Well trump said that he was in love with Kim Jong Hoon after this tweet so I would classify that as being nice and then finally. I won't fail well. I mean what's happened. Since trump's multiple summits with Kim Jong is that Kim has gotten a massive boost international national profile and legitimacy by meeting with President without any preconditions and has simaltaneously ramped up the missile program and the nuclear capability which is the only point of involving involving Kim Jong UN and diplomacy so there are many many problems that tweets but my favorite one is the idea that trying to have diplomatic relations with a three year. Old Somehow didn't work. July thirtieth two thousand nineteen trade wars are good apparently and easy to win. China is doing very badly worst year in twenty seven was supposed supposed to start buying our agricultural product now no signs that they are doing so that is the problem with China they just don't come through. Our economy has become much much larger than the Chinese economy is last three years. Where do you start with the stuff of it? The idea that the US economy has eclipsed the Chinese economy in the last three years because because of trump is an amazing claim. And then the other thing. That's sort of unspoken this tweet but if you know trump's tweets really jumps out to you is the number of times that he contradicts himself so he constantly says things on twitter like China has just announced that they are going to be buying massive amounts of soybean from a great Patriot farmers and then a week or two who later. He has this tweet where he says. Effectively they're not actually doing it and then he'll come back and make the same claim again and so it's this sort of whiplash that twitter allows him to get away with because his base. Here's this they think okay China's now going to buy some soybeans well. The people in his twitter base are not the people who are actually selling soybeans. So they don't know if it's happened and they believe him and he can get away with it and this is where I think. Twitter diplomacy also bleeds into domestic politics. Where you end up having a lack lack of accountability because you can just shoot off a claim everybody moves on and then it's like it never happened when it's false? I think that the trade war stuff though is also indicative of how miscalculation can be very dangerous because China is actually reading these tweets trying to make not just sense of them but make policy based on them and they have no idea what it means. I mean it's riddled with Typos and grammatical errors. And then you know. They're they're scratching their their chins sort of saying will two weeks ago. He seemed to be happy with President. Then she now he's not and this causes again. Miscalculation which is I think the name of the game for twitter diplomacy July eighth two thousand nineteen some thoughts on Brexit and on the. UK's outgoing going. I'm blessed to the. US have been very critical about the way the UK and Prime Minister Theresa May Handle Brexit. What a mess? She and her representatives have created. I told her how it should be done but she decided to go another way. I didn't know the ambassador but he's not liked or well within the US we will no longer deal with him. The good news for the wonderful United Kingdom is that they will soon have a new prime minister. While I thoroughly enjoyed the magnificent state visit last month it was the queen who I was most impressed with so this tweet I think unveil some of the other problems with twitter when it comes to diplomacy and that is that statements of national importance is can be made without vetting. You know if there was actually communicate from the White House in the past this would have gone through a series of different advisors it would have been checked and the first instance in which trump trump tweeted about theresa. May He misspelled her name and accidentally tagged somebody with I believe one hundred sixty twitter followers. So you know. It's not exactly a crack team at the White House when it comes comes to twitter but then beyond this when he says she didn't go the way that I said what he's actually talking about according to the UK government is his suggestions that she sued the the European European Union as a way to solve brexit which his maybe it's ludicrous it's idiocy it's not going to work and then you have sort of the basic ignorance that comes out of these types of tweets. Were win actually. Trump arrives in the UK and gets pressed on various tweets though ask him questions and the followup about say is the NHS on the table the National Health Service on table in trade negotiations and he doesn't know what it is and this is again. You know this is the problem when you can make a statement you interfere in the affairs or politics of an allied country country and have no idea what. You're talking about October sixteenth two thousand eighteen taking Saudi Arabia's word for it just spoke with the Grand Prince of Saudi Arabia who totally denied any knowledge of what took place in their Turkish consulate. He was with Secretary of State. Mike Pompeo during the call and told me that he has already started and will rapidly. Expand fanned a full and complete investigation into this matter. Answers will be forthcoming shortly. This is of course about Jamal Kashogi who's a fellow columnists the Washington Post just before he was murdered and dismembered by the Saudi government which then led to a series of attempted cover ups by the Saudi government's with trump's help where he tried to sweep it under the rug. And and say you know they don't know anything about it and provide political cover to the Saudis and I think you know. This is the dark side of twitter where you can very quickly spread. What is clearly misinformation in pursuit of diplomatic relationship where trump clearly values for a variety of reasons whether it's strategic reasons or his financial conflicts of interest with the Saudi Kingdom? And you know a different president a pre twitter era first off would not have made the statement and secondly would have waited till the facts came out before staking the credibility of the White House on something something that was going to be very quickly debunked. I mean one of the famous examples during the Kashogi investigation was the idea that he had left the consulate. When the Saudis put a body double in clothes it was similar to Shoji's but forgot to change his shoes I mean it was amateur hour and for the US president in the White House to be affiliated with it because of such sporadic in a quick quick tweets was just embarrassing for the credibility of the United States August? Twenty of two thousand nine hundred an attempt at humor accompanied by a mockup of a trump trump casino on the Tundra. I promise not to do this degree land so this is a a photo shopped photo of trump property a trump hotel in greenland amongst a sort of sparse looking fishing village. And I think this is well is one of those moments where you have trump make a comment in the sort of real oh world right off off of cyberspace where he says. Maybe we'll buy greenland and then it sparks. This whole controversy of how Silva's claim is this proposal etc and and then he tries to make light of it as though it was a joke to begin with on twitter. But I think that this is also important in highlighting the risks of twitter in terms of photoshop or doctored images and trump did this with greenland as joke and there was obviously a joke. But there's other times where he's done and hasn't been a joke so he has sent tweets where they have basically doctored video video of Jim Acosta the CNN reporter who was temporarily banned from the White House looking more aggressive than he was because they speed it up his arm movement yeah right and this went throughout the conservative twitter sphere. Very very quickly. You can imagine something like that happening in diplomacy to. That's the big risk is that as deep technology for example fake videos that look very convincing or photo shopped images or any sort of disinformation campaign actually gets promoted by governments and by presidents presidents. That's where we answered very very dangerous territory and this type of stuff. I mean again when you think about the combination of Dr Video doctored images all being promoted by trump trump with no regard for the facts and the lack of credibility that he already has how much more dangerous it gets when you try to make sense of as a foreign diplomat Brian.

Saudi sentences 5 to death for Jamal Khashoggi's killing

"Saudi Arabia has sentenced five people to death for the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi his show Jeez death last year inside a Saudi consulate in Istanbul caused international outcry Saudi officials have consistently claimed his death was a mistake carried out by rogue agents but other investigations including one by the CI a and another one by the U. N. found evidence that the killing was the carefully premeditated execution the Saudi court whose proceedings were mostly conducted in secret also sent in several other men to prison but exonerated two senior aides to Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin someone we're joined now they've been Hubbard at The New York Times welcome thank you do we have reasons to doubt the integrity of this particular verdict what's your sense well as a lot of people think outside of Saudi reboot after you're raising a lot of questions are there just the fact that it was held in secret they were you know they did let some local media in but no international media of certain you know that's just not a lot going on here in terms of international standards that would make people feel very confident that was a legitimate process truly trying to ascertain who was responsible for this killing and how they should be punished if that's the case what purpose do you think this verdict service for the Saudi kingdom well you know the sun is very interested in putting this behind them I think that they realize how how much of a black mark this was you know the verdict as it came out today very much lined up with the Saudi narrative which says that this was a very exceptional active reserve not trip planned this was a decision that was made sort of in the heat of the moment by the Saudi agents were on the ground and who had not been dispatched to kill and and have not been authorized to kill right and how does that narrative differ with the narratives emerging out of these other investigations investigations by the CI a bye bye Turkey by the U. N. we do not quite a lot about what happened and we know that there were fifteen agents from Saudi Arabia who flew in in the hours before Mr Shoji showed up to receive his paperwork work they spent time in the consulate preparing they had entire conversations before he arrived about his body about the size of its body whether or not pieces of it would fit in suitcases one of the agents referred to him as a sacrificial animal when they arrived at the consulate then there's sort of all the efforts that the Saudis put in afterwards to try to cover up the crime they brought in forensic and chemical experts to more or less forensically cleanse the crime scene on a huge huge amounts of effort to keep the the Turks from sort of figuring out exactly what happened and who did what and you reminding us that at least a team of fifteen Saudi agents are flown in a is stumbled who were involved in the killing of Jamal Khashoggi what do we know about whether all of those people have been held to account we know that five people have been sentenced to death we don't know their identities we know that more men have been sentenced to prison but we don't know if the fifteen Saudi agents are these people who now face penalties no well I mean we we have good reason to believe that the there were eleven who were on trial you have good reason to believe that these eleven were among the fifteen who were in the scandal I don't think we know exactly which eleven they they were right and you know we don't know which people did what I mean the date that the Saudis did say that the five who were given sentences today were the ones who were actually involved in the killing where as the three who were going to prison were involved in covering up the crime and violating other laws but other than that we have no detail exactly who these people are what exact role they played in this killing I want to read you something the U. N. investigator on yes Telemark wrote today she wrote bottom line the hit men are guilty sentenced to death the master minds not only walk free they have barely been touched by the investigation and the trial that is the antithesis of justice it is a mockery do you think that fairly sums up the vast majority of international reaction to this verdict today well I think it sums up a lot of the settlement in the past and you can write it states we've seen a lot of anger from various parts of the US government of with you know the extension of the White House elsewhere in the world I think there are plenty of other countries that do business with Saudi Arabia that are less concerned about you know pushing it on human rights you know the the the Russians don't probably care so much of the Chinese and plenty of other people so is this where the inquiry ends inside the Saudi justice system I mean is this the final word from the kingdom well I don't think it's the end of the Saudi judicial process this sentence was referred to as a preliminary rulings and so these can be appealed and then they can later go to the High Court before they're any executions they actually have to be approved by the king and so you'll just the Saudi legal process could go on for quite a long time okay for these particular individuals facing punishment now but with respect to additional individuals who have yet to be held to account could there be further repercussions it doesn't appear that there's any further investigation going on Saudi Arabia I mean I would be very surprised if you can give came out and said we have new information against new people and at this point I don't think there's a lot to expect from other other external process easy either I mean the the UN rapporteur he quoted earlier yeah she had called for an international investigation plenty of other people have there's just no I haven't really seen indicate any indication of these kinds of calls getting any momentum

"Wednesday marks a year since Jamal Khashoggi was killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. the idea that Saudi operative for plot to kill a man a US journalist inside their own consulate shocked the world after the gruesome details that emerged Mr Shoji was a critic of the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Selmon who is suspected of involvement of the killing NPR checking north of looks at whether he and his kingdom. ice exactly three weeks after the death of Jamal Khashoggi Saudi Arabia held its second annual international investment conference the glittering of van dubbed Davos in the desert was meant to showcase business opportunities in the kingdom a year earlier it brought in some of the biggest names in international banking and investment but not this time a lot of people a lot of phone investors stayed away Christian coats Gourock sin is a Middle East specialist at rice university's Baker institute he says dozens of investors and government officials quickly dropped out of the conference after could show she's killing that was when they were daily revelations about Saudi hit squads and dismemberment but now those horrors have faded and lower expenses Saudi Arabia still has so much oil wealth it's your resistible for many investors they started to come back over the past few months so it's initial outcry and a quiet year few began to go back into Saudi Arabia tempted by the Congress of contracts the Muhammad somebody's trying to push through these young friends was says Nick with the Middle East institute says many investments are being delayed in large part out of concern over crown prince Mohammed bin Selmon the crown prince is widely suspected English oak trees killing despite his repeated denials says Nick says the prince's autocratic tendencies such as detaining hundreds of wealthy Saudis at the Ritz Carlton hotel for several months had already worried foreign investors says Nick says the could show G. killing reinforce those concerns the fight that now the country's a one man show you know means that you're at the mercy of preaching this one person and if you are going to put many millions of dollars in investment and a lot of management time and so on you don't want to be at the mercy of one person that's too dangerous that's on the business side there's also been a political toll at a G. twenty meeting earlier this year picture showed the crown. prince isolated from world leaders accept Russia's Vladimir Putin who gave him a hearty handshake Saudi Arabia has lost arms sales from Germany Denmark and Finland the US Congress his efforts to block arms sales to Saudi Arabia increased after could show she's death the crown prince still has one key supporter president trump who is even cast doubt on the CIA's assessment that the crown prince played a role in could show she's death they have nothing definitive and the fact is maybe he did maybe he did Ben Friedman the director of the foreign influence transparency initiative at the nonpartisan center for international policy says trump is effectively allowing Saudi Arabia to get away with crucial trees killing the Saudis haven't actually paid a large price for the murder of your market share gains insure we can look at what Congress is nine terms of legislation that they've been working on related to arms sales to Saudi Arabia but at the end of the day trump has vetoed every single bill that would have hurt the Saudis in this regard but the race institutes all works in believes ultimately Saudi Arabia will pay a price and I think for the first time. recent history there's no bipartisan support in the Congress in the US political spectrum for for Saudi Arabia and that's going to be concerned because trump will be there forever to protect the crown prince still only works and believes the crown prince will become king because he still has the blessing of his father king someone despite what the rest of the world

Saudi Aramco inks deal with India's Reliance Industries

"Saudi arabia is making a high stakes investment in india's. The world's largest crude oil exporter seeks is to deepen its ties with the fastest growing energy consumer. The saudi state energy giant plans to take a twenty percent stake in reliance industries refining and petrochemicals business valuing the businesses seventy five billion dollars he was to discuss the deal is angry rebel. They're not senior energy correspondent down the line rejoined oil mumbai correspondent benjamin parkyn so then what are the terms of the deal and how favorable are they reliance well aramco is going to take a twenty cent stake in realizes oil and in petrochemicals business which valued at seventy five billion dollars including debt so that means we'll get about fifteen billion dollars which is a huge sum and one of the largest foreign investments ever in india in addition reliance will obviously get access to saudi arabia's enormous oil reserves cbs. You'll get access to aramco's technology which will help to make it's refunding operation most sophisticated and so on and it will get access to around close was management expertise and aramco will appoint some managerial positions within the new unit there for me however the deal isn't finalized finalized yet and they're all details to resolve realizes channel mckay shabani initially announced it in a very confident fashion at their annual general meeting meeting but aramco went onto a little bit of cold water on that by saying that it was still a relatively early stage however ryan so confident that it's just a matter of time crime until they concluded and what's the appeal of the indian market for saudi aramco around the foreign oil and gas majors increase investments in the country to well b._p. And reliance lines recently entered into a deal to form a network of petrol stations and aviation fuels business so clearly oil and gas majors are interested in india and for a good reason because it's the foss granted you consumer in the world and it is among the fastest growing larger economies you know there are literally tens of millions of people people and even hundreds of millions of people in some cases entering these new markets as consumers for the first time so whether it's driving causal the most cycles flying in planes buying and switching on t._v.'s getting connected to the electric grid and no other country in the world bar i guess us china can claim anything like that so with dimond lagging in other parts of the world india is very very important for aramco and other big oil and gas companies reliance particularly important for aramco well reliance <unk> has one of the world's largest and most fisted refining operations they state of the art complex in gujarat on india's west coast i but crucially reliance also has a strong presence throughout india and across regions and sectors that few others can claim seem to have a presence so it has an incredible research among indian consumers and in addition to its oil and chemical business this it has to very fast growing revenue businesses in retail reliance retail and in digital services called gio and now it's not obvious obvious how these could help a company like aramco or b._p. But there are lots of opportunities and reliance executives have talked about that so gio has three hundred forty million mobile customers which is equivalent or larger than the population of the u._s. So it's a huge is base of people and gio creates kind of loyalty scheme whereby its customers have an incentive to refuel at a specific petrol station and network or whatever it is or realize of land on which aramco could build if they need to which would massively speed up. What's otherwise is a time consuming and painful bureaucratic process. What will relies use the investment ford. One crucial thing is to pay down its debt so so realizes come under an increasing amount of scrutiny for its growing debt pile precisely because it spent a huge amount of money in order to build up this digital gio business us almost from scratch in some senses ties and that debt of around twenty billion out of the end of the most recent financial year which is much larger than what i had a few years years ago so this has concerned some investors and holidays to downgraded the radio net stock so alongside side the aramco deal reliance announced that does zero company by twenty twenty one and the roughly fifty billion dollars is going to get is gonna make a huge difference to that needless to say but reliance is adamant that the deal is not about paying down debt. It's a strategic partnership and it's part of a broader vision that involves loves bringing on mopeds no just in the oil business but across the company in order to sort of shake up the way its run and its management structure and how will it's digital and retail business with its oil and chemicals operation the retail and digital businesses current account for around thirty percent of eba but reliance wants to increase that share to around half now. This is all part of a quite an ambitious strategy to go from being a business that refined oil and makes wchs petrochemicals to a consumer facing giant that will provide you with everything from mobile phones to your t._v. Service to clothes to to food on multiple now notice to do this. The company plans to restructuring quite a significant so wants to separate the oil and chemical unit then twitch around investing into a separate entity within five years and may listed it also wants to list raced gio and reliance retail over similar timeframe so in five years time reliance will look very different and you know something more akin to a holding company will do succeed in winning regulatory approval rawlins's confident that it will it will be closed by march next year yea twenty twenty but as i said the terms still have to be finalized with aramco who relevant more hesitant in their own statements turning to you how does this deal fitting with aramco's overall strategy so saudi aramco has made huge efforts over the last few years to expand abroad and this is mainly through asia and false growing emerging economies and it struck huge number refinery partnerships across asia from korea korea announced india. The plan is always to lock in future sales of crude. It's a measure of security for the world's biggest oil exporter exporter to be able to do this. The point is also that it wants to secure these markets where demand is still growing quite quickly. Particularly as consumption elsewhere begins to weaken and over time beginning c mo remove this particularly with big global push towards cleaner gina fuels and so this is part of their overall strategy tools diversification so diversification but in a slightly different sense the kingdom and muhammad had bin salman the crown prince of saudi arabia has actually talked about moving the country's economy beyond oil but if it wants to do that it needs to have a steady stream of cash coming from its existing oil and gas businesses in order to fund all the new stuff and create saudi arabia two point. Oh so whether it be in technology or tourism mining all these other sectors that saudi arabia wishes it could it will be an expert in at some point but it has to leverage its know-how in order to do that. You mentioned the saudi arabia's efforts to diversify away from fossil fuels away from dirty sources. She's a fantasy. Where is it that with particular process so the kingdom's diverse vacation of its economy is largely to do with securing its future future government revenues and it's extremely early stages. They've tried to invest in a huge number of technology companies abroad these very fast growing foreign companies in some ways but actually not generating the kinds of revenues traditional oil and gas businesses can deliver so it's very tricky will also happened as they've been trying to embark walk upon this big plan led by the very powerful and quite impatient crown prince is that they have had a series of political crises from the killing of journalist jamaica shoji and what the has done is created this sort of wave international censure and stops the country okay from getting these funds from abroad that really needed to help diversify the country's economy but this is another reason why they've turned to india india has been <hes> with open arms and is really willing to legitimize and give saudi arabia that ranking as a global investment went powerhouse with a deal like this and also because india's economy still heavily reliant on polluting fossil fuels so we'll aramco's technical no hair that they've they seem offered as part of this deal helping to cut back on the pollutants the so damaging to the health of the population why would say at this stage. The answer is probably no do india has got one of the most aggressive renewables programs out there but the demand is growing so quickly that they need more of everything everything whether it be oil gas coal even as well as newer forms of energy clean like solar so india is probably googly looking to saudi arabia to ensure that indian energy security is firmly in place and this remember comes a time when oil all supplies from countries such as iran or venezuela have really been disrupted. It's obviously a private company reliance but there is a broader context in which this deal is happening. You mentioned the the fall of supply from venezuela and iran in terms of the amount of oil. Were talking about as part of this steal. Will this offset the loss of those imports for india from around because of the u._s. sanctions. So what we've already seen is that some countries such as saudi arabia and iraq have tried to replace runyon barrels not just in india but other countries too and the thinking here is for reliance that they will end end up securing forty percent of the amount of oil that they need from saudi aramco itself but they're still will be other suppliers out there and eventually how how confident the saudi aramco the still will go through saudi aramco has said that india's massive strategic priority for the company and the country but the chief financial of did say on the company's first ever earnings call that the deal was still at a very early stage due do you diligence was still required over the next four months or say and board approval was still require it so they really were trying to as bensaid waterdown how far hour-long the steel had gone to but would save very senior. Officials in saudi arabia and also in india definitely would have had to sign off on this to even get to this point.

Mohammed bin Salman Is Making Muslims Boycott Mecca

"Now to some Muslims calling for a boycott of this year's pilgrimage to the holy site of Mecca every year. Two million people go thing is meccas in Saudi Saudi Arabia where the government of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman has been implicated in the murder of journalists in Saudi critic Jamal Ca Shoji also after pressure from human rights groups superstars singer Nicki Menaj pulled out of the Jetta World Fest Music Festival in Saudi Arabia that starts today London based journalist Akhmed tw- age has just written about the Mecca pilgrimage boycott for foreign policy magazine. We've reached him in London. Twitch told me a key moment came in April when a Muslim cleric endorse I the idea was quite a big deal considering how important hodge is like being one of the pillars of Islam for him to come out to say that and it's not exactly Muslims turning their back on their religion as more than turning their back on Saudis foreign policy as well as what did to the journalists Jamal she the boycott has gathered steam after that initial call yeah it's kind of embracing over the past few years actually but without cool it kind of almost gave credit to it because this is actually a scholar saying. As opposed to just like civil rights activists. Do you think that Saudi Arabia even cares. I mean certainly millions of pilgrim's do show up but Saudi Arabia makes money in other ways of course the whole point of Mama been set him on vision. Twenty thirty is about diversifying the G._D._p.. So at the moment almost ninety percent of their G._D._p.. Comes from oil wealth as we know but as the world is shifting away from natural resources such as oil the Saudi Arabia's coming to diversify their income and one of the ways that the aiming to do that is through increasing tourism but I think also images wrapped up into the Saudi Arabia's image in there must be some concern that this boycott will draw attention to some of these issues underscore the image issue and a real issue Saudi Arabia images of priority forest so for example Mohammed. When's Simone spent a lot of last year traveling the whole of the world the U._S. coming to the U._K.? Trying to promote themselves as this almost liberal country going through various reforms are now women to drive almost as a way to cover up some of the other activities that they've been doing throughout the Middle East or some of their internal policies as well well. I mean economic pressure on for instance South Africa. It took a sustained effort over long period of time for policy and actually the fabric of society there to change yeah I would agree with. I think it's time based thing on should the boy sustain and the income does reduce the all going to be forced to change their policies.

New book on Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump paints a gloomy portrait

"Right. So this week guys. The guardian got a hold of a new book coming out March nineteenth called Kush ink by Vicky ward, I mentioned at top of the show or not the top maybe. But earlier in the show when I was talking about Trump printing out the Komi firing letter on the wrong printer. So in this book, some of our beans came true, check out this clip from episode eighteen the Daily Beast broke a story on Friday that Kushner's dad asked a Qatari firm to lend the Kushner's money to shore up sixty six sixty six Fifth Avenue. We've talked about the six six six building. It's the office building that's the centerpiece of the Kushner real estate empire, and it is one billion dollars in debt, and that loan is coming due in two, months, and Kushner and his family been scrambling to get money to pay this lingo. And that's what the city group and Apollo five hundred million dollar loans went into the office building. And Kushner's dad went to Qatar and ask them can we have some money and to to put into this office building Qatar looked at the office building because he bought it in two thousand seven right before the bubble bursts. So that was dumb and Qatar went no note that you and that upset Kushner, but what's interesting is that when that deal fell apart. Kushner backed a Saudi blockade of Qatar. Basically teaming up with Saudi Arabians to to put throw a blockade up against Qatar and Qatar is one of our key allies in the fight against Aycell in the region, that's national security level shit. We have thousands troops in Qatar like. But his, but he but his not getting alone. And now, it's not proven that. It's connected. But it's to him. It was clearly more important, but well, whether he did it because of that or not, but he did he did advocate for the blockade against Qatar. And it happened to be less than a month after Qatar refused to lend him money on that build interesting. So we'll see if that also. Yeah, we'll see Moller's looking into it. And also the securities the SEC the securities and Exchange Commission dropped an inquiry into Apollo Apollo global management less than a month after they agreed to lend Kushner one hundred and eighty million dollars. So go back and listen to eighteen because it's all about putting club Kushner, and I have a feeling we're going to hear a lot more about Kushner in the next couple of weeks anyhow in this new book, we learned that around that time Kush was confronted by Tillerson, and Gary Cohn who blamed Kush for Trump's abrupt endorsement of. Saudi blockade against cutter. Even though they're an ally in the region. We have our one of our largest bases there with a quite a few military stationed there. Shortly thereafter, cutter help to bail out Kushner from his devil building sixty six Fifth Avenue. The guardian also published a piece this week about cushion, how his friendship with Mohammed bin some on. The crown prince of Saudi Arabia is at the heart of US Saudi relations, and as we know Kushner Flynn, and a whole host Trump allies have pushed to provide the Saudis with technology to build nuclear reactor plants that could put them on the path to developing nuclear weapons if they want to enrich their own uranium, which they definitely do which is dumb because it's way less than half the price to get it enriched elsewhere and shipped back to you. So the fact that you want enriched uranium suspicious uranium means you want to make weapons. So let's go over a few things we discuss regarding Kushner on the pod I way back in April twenty seventeen Kushner's dad asked the country's for a loan. And they said, no, you're stupid. Get out of him two months later. Saudi Arabia throws up the blockade much to the chagrin of Conan. Tillerson. Incidentally, that's right around the time Jamalco Shoji left Saudi Arabia after he trash talk Trump.

Prince on tour: Muhammad bin Salman

"Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman is pivoting eastward this week. He's on a tour of Asia. Believe that San gonna be very very important country in the coming, and you want to be sure that part of that with stops in Pakistan, India and China the trip is a strategically important one for the prince he has had a very rocky six months. He's been accused of ordering the murder of dissident journalist, Joel shalt g in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul is father death has rocked relations between the west and Saudi Arabia. So this tour is a way of cleansing away some of the diplomatic opprobrium that is taxed to him in the west to Sean Joshi is our defense editor he is looking for friends who will happen focus on other more harmonious matters in Pakistan. He has a very pliant friend. But also India and China who will not obsess over Saudi Arabia's human rights record and will deal with him on more pragmatic basis, which is to say, they can talk oil. They can talk not just Oriel. Other types of investment regional security counter terrorism with India, particularly keen to get Saudi help on chasing up Pakistani wrongdoers, and they can talk missiles and strategic weapons with China. But in that region there is quite a lot going on. Let's take those sort of destinations one by one. He's already been to Pakistan. What are his ambitions? And what are the issues there? Well, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan have historically been extremely close part of it for Pakistan is money. They are being squeezed towards the IMF for a bailout and Saudi Arabia has just agreed twenty billion dollars of investment agreements. Pakistan, also sends troops to Saudi Arabia to train with the Saudis. It has contributed forces to the campaign in Yemen. But of course, Pakistan, also neighbors Iran, which you Saudi Arabia's arch rival, so there's a lot more going on in terms of also containing Iran's influence, so what exactly was he trying to secure in Pakistan, one of the most important projects. He's looking at is. Funding a big oil refinery in the port of guava in Pakistan's Balochistan province, and that's important for a number of reasons right now, it's the centerpiece of China's economic corridor in Pakistan, so he's competing with Beijing. It's very near the Iranian port of Chabahar where India is investing. So he's competing with deady, but more importantly than all of that, Balochistan neighbors Iran, and so he is building a presence right next door to Iranian territory. There have been rumors that Saudi Arabia has funded groups in Balochistan, which is where gutter is located that have conducted attacks inside, Iran. So I think this is likely to be another step in the Saudi campaign to push back at Iran. I suppose I'm wondering why this visit might be so welcome on the part of all of these countries. If what he's doing his tipping into some pretty tricky, local dynamics kind of on all fronts in in every direction. Why isn't he viewed as kind of a destabilizing force? Well, I think the Indians will call. Where he is. Now, they historically might have seen Saudi Arabia as a stabilizing force supporting radical Islamist movements that were causing trouble in places like Kashmir and other parts of India. But in recent years, India has tried to reset its relationship with Saudi Arabia. It wants Saudi investment and it wants to coke Saudi Arabia away from Pakistan and officials in New Delhi or still reeling from last week's terror attack in Indian-administered Kashmir, which it blamed on Pakistan. Isn't that sort of complicating the dynamics I think it probably is. I think that India is focused on this terrible attack that took place the worst attack in Kashmir in decades, and this profound anger in India and desire among many people to take some sort of retaliatory military action now Mohammed bin Salman presence in Pakistan, first of all and then his visit to India has complicated that for the Indians. But I think what they will be doing is using the opportunity to try and say to him look, we know your close to package. Stan we know you'll building a relationship, but we are a bigger more important country. Don't you want to work with us and try and put pressure on the Pakistanis to end their support of terrorism? So quite the opposite. Then of everyone trying to shun him everyone instead wants his ear quite badly. I think that's right. I think that for the Chinese as well where he will be heading after India China will think well, here's an American ally. If we can give him weapons advanced technology, perhaps build economic ties his an opportunity to try and peel away another American ally and win one over the Americans. Do you suppose that this tour will accomplish its goal of kind of shaking off the shadow of the Jamaica Shoji affair, I think it will show the west that Saudi Arabia has other partners, and that will probably push some people to say, look, we can't stop talking about kashogi. But we have to be aware that Saudi Arabia is an important partner. Indeed, only in the last week British. Officials have been complaining that German arms export ban on Saudi Arabia has grounded its fleet of typhoon fighter jets. So people already worried that some of the pressure on Saudi Arabia is resulting in lost commercial opportunities and the more. He can show that he has friends in other parts of the world, even potential suppliers of arms, the more. He will be able to say to the west you better talk to me at some point. Because if not I will find other people to speak with and I'm also intimately involved in all of these other sort of cross border conflicts that you you might need my help with. We'll absolutely. And I think the biggest of all and the biggest prize here is the peace. Talks over ghanistan Saudi Arabia has had a relationship with Afghanistan's Pakistan is central to the process of the peace talks. And so if the west feels that Saudi Arabia could play an important role in cajoling Pakistan to push the Taliban to the table if it could coax the insurgent directly to the table then. That may be one more step on the road to rehabilitation for no had been solo.

"Arabia and four other Gulf nations will join the emerging markets bond index is this month. The move would potentially pave the way for billions of dollars of inflows into securities by the index is track notes from fifteen eligible issues with a face value of one hundred and nineteen billion dollars in beds Middle East finance reporter, Matthew Martin joined us with the details. We're seeing Saudi is always going to be the biggest constituent of the index, and as we see the with oil where it is. We're gonna have the need for the governments of the region to be going out and raising more and more often. So that's going to continue to be a trend over the next few years. So the fact that there's this increase liquidity focus on on the sovereign issuers is only gonna make it easier for them over time. Go out and raise more paper, the Bank of America, Merrill, Lynch. Stay put the number at about thirty billion dollars in terms of potential inflows who are likely to be the biggest beneficiaries are not likely, but what does the list? Well, if you look at. Saudis lost issue just couple of weeks ago. They still want us to get twenty seven billion dollars off orders. Even in the midst of all the control around because Shoji, so this is going to help Saudi to narrow the spreads. Probably. But really, you know, the biggest beneficiaries probably gonna be someone Bahrain who were a bit of extra appetite is possibly the difference between being able to print or not print and given the more strained the fiscal position. That's much more important for Bahrain. And some of the biggest difference. Hasn't manic is the head of equities research and strategy at exotics partners. He joined you and gave us his insights on the EM index inclusions and the wider mini markets. You should take this in the context of the of the Middle East region. More broadly becoming more and more mainstream. So we've seen that inequities with the equity markets here joining the footsie emerging market index the MCI emerging market index. What this means fundamentally though is as you're coming mentioned is that it allows the Gulf governments to finance themselves a little bit more easily. It does address funding issues. What it doesn't address some change? Release the challenge of growth, it's gross challenges that are most acute for equity investors in this region. That's what was being the biggest risk. It's interesting we start Davos, we start our coverage from Davos this week. And this time last year, we're talking about synchronized. We're going to get the weather forecast from everybody about clydes. I'm wondering another but. Is that trickle down effect already in our markets in terms of concerned about growth because we're in fiscal stimulus mode here. We're already in the ballast season. As it were. I think last year is a very interesting test case last year for a global investor what the Gulf offered was an oasis of protection from dollar strength. Right. This year that may not be so highly in demand now if we begin to see gross pick up again, particularly in parts of Asia, if we see a normalization of financing conditions in parts of Latin America and the more stressed emerging markets actually that defensive quality that GCC maybe less attractive, and where there is a pickup in growth or a normalization of growth as particularly in Asia. And you were talking earlier about US China negotiations perhaps heading into more positive direction that may tilt most global investors who at the margin might look at this region. Instead to look at parts of Asia, we have that exports story, we were discussing earlier your latest research note, and you make the point that you. Getting a little bit of fatigue. When it comes to all the bullish and overweight calls on some of the lenders, especially in Saudi Arabia. We did put together the best performing sectors in the kingdom. And that's over a one month's time. Horizon is nothing nothing. Short of surprising in that. You've got some of the key names that are leading key sectors. So civil a samba. Anywhere else outside of the banks. Are you finding opportunity for great returns short? So if you think that the banks the most important, fundamental drivers the banks and Saudi this. He was meant to be the rising US rate environment. The language around US rate has changed markedly in the last three months from a clear progression of increases to now some debate as to whether we get those to what degree we get those that suggests that leadership from a sector point of view in Saudi may change this year. Not so much the banks, but more about the consumer companies, maybe even the construction companies in an environment with the Saudi government is again putting its foot on the pedal of public spending. And then the last pocket probably the structurally strongest stories in Saudi are those that have plays into reform stocks that are playing into healthcare into insurance growth in to the inclusion of more women in the workforce. And in the consumer base, whether that some fitness with lesson consumer retail, so certainly but behind the political headlines, the gross story remains if we keep over t- to buy because all market was perhaps most battles and Bruce globally last year fro- variety reasons, mostly the builders, you'd actually say that you got Email MAs. You got our max. And you say that there is good value. Is that just that they're so battered and more dying that they offer value, or do you believe that we're putting in a base in terms of all market here? I would have to say hand on heart. It's the first it's very cheap. Distinguishes them from other parts of Dubai is the likes of aromatics anymore. Molds have already built their sets. They've already fully funded them. They're generating cash flow to love the other listed parts of the divine decks, which are more relying only continuing growth of Dubai that in our view is a much riskier calling it the stage when you're still seeing basic deflation and divine turns of real estate pricing coming down speaking of inflation expectations. What are you using as a basis for your calculations? When it comes to the oil prices, quite hard to pin that down any particular number range. Are you expecting for twenty nine thousand nine hundred could make a lot of you calls comfortable frozen short. So our view is that oil remains in the range of sixty to eighty dollars. That's a very wide range.

Shoji murderer will Canada is is among those that have had strong words for this for this case for the murder, and they've also raised the questions about credibility of the investigation. They've been calling for more transparency in the whole thing. They you know, they've called the murder horrific and atrocious. Canada has a strong record of standing up for human rights around the world very much including in Saudi Arabia. It's important to establish clear facts about what has happened this important issue. But when it comes to concrete measures Canada's one of those countries that has yet to take firm tangible steps in response to this entire case. What's candidates position right now? What are they saying that they're doing right now when it comes to Saudi Arabia? So Canada's in the unique position because it has this fifteen billion dollar contract. It's headed for a couple of years now, and it's a huge contract to sell light, armored vehicles military vehicles to Saudi Arabia. So right now, they say they are reviewing this contract. They've said, it's it's a very difficult contract to get out of possible penalties would be in the billions of dollars could cost billions of dollars to to back away from. But that is something we are looking at right now. So at the moment Canada says it's reviewing its export permits which are used to allow for the sale of arms from Canada to other countries. So it's in the process of looking at those again and while it's doing that. It says it won't issue. New expert permits to Saudi Arabia. You know, the Canadian government has been coming under quite a bit of pressure domestically to react. There have been calls from all over the place in Canada. Whether it's to just tear up this agreement for these armed vehicles laid armored vehicles to study Arabia and take take the hit whatever it is even if it's billions of dollars, and even if it does cost jobs in Canada and others have have actually called on Canada to follow even with the United States is already done. And and sanction some of the top officials. Some of the people involved in Saudi Arabia as as a way of punishment, right? There have been these arguments for Canada to do something more. There has been pushed for Canada to sanction people in the country to pull out of the lavish deal and Canadian political scientist and writer, David mosque, rob has argued for this in the pages of the Washington Post. We spoke to him today. Well, given what we know about what happened to g as well. As what we know about the war in the end. In Canada should halt farms exports to Saudi Arabia.

U.S. Sanctions On Iran Could Impact How Trump Responds To Killing Of Jamal Khashoggi

"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from the fresh market, offering prepared sides desserts in ready to heat meals for your thanksgiving celebration, plus fresh Turkey spiral sliced Honey ham and more details in recipes available at the fresh market dot com. More than a million barrels a day of crude oil have been taken off the global market. Thanks to the Trump administration's decision to sanction Iranian oil exports. The White House is looking to Saudi Arabia to help replace that lost oil, which means it's relying on the Saudis just as their countries implicated in an international scandal. NPR's Jackie northern reports. The US sanctions are intended to take a Ronnie and oil exports off the global market. The administration is even warning that countries that import Iranian oil could face stiff penalties that's causing concern about where they will get their crude in the future. Jeff shot is with the Peterson institute for international economics. And so as the United States official. Went around the world. Are you doing that countries should stop buying wealth from Iran, they had to as part of their argument ensure those countries that there wouldn't be an oil shock, and that prices would go up in those countries who would be disadvantaged in an effort to prevent an oil shock? The Trump administration is allowing several countries to continue buying oil from Iran for at least the next six months, and it's continuing to pressure other oil producing countries to make up the shortfall. And that's where Saudi Arabia comes in Saudi is the main country that uses looked words because only Saudi has significant spare capacity cliff Cup chin is the chairman of Eurasia group, a political risk consultancy company. He says Saudi Arabia is the only country that can easily ramp-up oil production. Adding an extra half a million barrels a day in short order more over the long term the administration felt confident Saudi crude could help avoid a disruption in the global oil. Market after the Iranian sanctions took hold. But that was before the death of journalist Jamal kashogi in a Saudi consulate in Istanbul Cup shin says now, the Trump administration is under enormous pressure to penalize the Saudi government for its role in kashogi staff league Shoji incident makes the Joe politics of this episode more complicated. The issue we're gonna see unfolding is sending an appropriate message that this is unacceptable without being so harsh as to Venezuela to the point where they say tack with us we're cutting production. That's the tight rope that were walking here. President Trump has threatened the Saudi government with severe punishment. If it's leaders order could show. Jeez. Death raising the specter of retaliation Saudi Arabia has used oil as a weapon before during the nineteen seventies oil embargo, but Rachel MBA. An adjunct fellow at the center for a new. American security says the Saudi government supports the Trump administration's tough stand on Iran and could use the bump and revenues from increased production. My view is that the Saudis are unlikely to use that oil weapon because their focus is so much on being a stable provider of fuel to the global economy. Now, they might provide it in smaller volumes or more delayed on they do it in less coordination with the United States. Either way. The Peterson institute shot says, he's not sure it's a good idea for the US to rely too much on Saudi Arabia's spare production capacity to make up for the Iran shortfall. He says right now supply and demand are balanced. But what happens if there is another emergency that takes significant amount of oil off the market, then we could have a different situation and a sharp spike in oil prices. So even savvy oil can't guarantee that prices. Won't rise. Jackie Northam, NPR news.

And then we'll get into all the details that have surfaced since that interview he actually had been very nervous about going to the consulate. But you know, he wanted to document so that he could get remarried, and he went into the consulate didn't come out and people have ever since then the same. What happened? And in the beginning, the Saudi said US, he's fine. But the Turks anonymous sources and intelligence officials and the like basically said, but they had come to believe that he had been killed inside the consulate and possibly dismembered that there was a fifteen member Saudi team that had flown in basically within the same twenty four hours because this was like a pre schedule appointments for him. So they knew he was coming, and they came fifty member team came, and then they they laugh, and he never reappeared and miss all comes with the backdrop of increasing repression in Saudi Arabia, especially against anyone who speaks out against the changes or any initiative that the crown prince Mohammad bin Salman has been pursuing kind of strange because he's also been discounted than imposing some reforms that is very much being cheered by the west, and he has tried to, cultivate, a reputation as a progressive reformer in this deeply conservative Muslim country. But he's been coupling that with this, Jerry. Authoritarian harsh crackdown on dissent. And this was one of the reasons Jamal, I showed she had grown very disillusioned with the conference on was writing Collins attacking heaven, so the steam to have government now push the latest reports are a bit different about where things are going. We'll get to that. As you were saying how show in his early writings was very supportive almost a go-between between a lot of journalists. And then when the crown prince came a little more into power in obvious. He would be next in line. He changed his tone. So obviously, the the crown prince did not like any of that. And they're saying that for something hit or something like that to have been taken out against him. It would have had to been ordered by the crown prince himself. That's what leads to all of this international intrigue now, and what happened, and why was he ordered to be killed or captured or abducted or something one of the updates. Now is that they're saying that Saudi officials are preparing some type of report to acknowledge that has Shoji his death was the result of an interrogation that went wrong. They're still saying that things can change in. This report is not solid yet. But that's kind of what we're hearing. Now. Right. So this is the CNN reports, and what's really striking about it. If if this comes out to be the case if they do report that indeed Husham Z side while in Saudi custody of all let's not forget the Saudis. Originally said that she was fine and that he left so it shows the apparently they lied from the beginning. And if they say, well, we only meant to interrogate him. We didn't mean to kill him was an accident. That's not out of the realm of possibility. It's something that President Trump. I'm listening to indicate that it's a story that she would accept and it's not impossible because because the studies all that they do have a history of perhaps China coax people come back to the teen or rendition them or they don't really have a history of killing people dies because of harsh interrogation techniques. Let's just say that's something pretty serious. It's not like they were just trying to question. This takes it that step further. And where is the body one of these people that apparently went in had a bone saw? That's why they think that he was dismembered and the president has made Saudi Arabia one of our allies in that area. The reports are that Jared Kushner is very close friends with the crown prince also, and you know, they're trying to open up the area to business. And things like that. So I don't know if it would put hall to it, but it would really severely impact what's going on there. What's extraordinary, even I'm being told? Oh that like inside Saudi Arabia, people are a bit frustrated with this because they're saying the Saudis have stood with the United States to so many different things we cooperate with them on every level. Why should this one guy this one incident? It's got all that. And there's no indication that the administration is prepared to by any means and its relationship with. I mean, it's not even I don't think any administration would necessarily do that over over this. But you have to remember it doesn't just any other journalists. I mean, this guy is very prominent she knew people many many people in the US foreign policy community he wrote for a very powerful newspaper council. You know, frankly, like when it comes down to it often when you have a single face or steam, oh name that often captures the imagination of the public more than when you say a thousand people were killed today in this war, you know, so. I it's become a very emotional issue. I know members of congress, I'm very very upset about this on both sides. I mean, they're really mad about that. We're still waiting for any type of evidence. They're saying that Turkey might have a lot of evidence. But they're not sharing any of it just yet. And a lot of people are not the most reliable. Say you have to do everything they send a lot of people are making something out of hush. Oh, apple watch saying that he set it up to record. And it went back to the cloud into his iphone, which is fiance had, and there might be some type of recording of what that interrogation sounded like the other theory on that is that Turkey once that story out there because they don't want to admit that they have the Saudi consulate wired the hall, Tuesday,

"Today for Glenn triple eight seventy seven. Easy came up with one quick thing on the Saudi Arabia's situation. Is it possible for us to settle on a pronunciation of this man's, man? I would I would like to call a conference of everyone media all media. What are we supposed to call this guy because I? Khashoggi initially heard that one on CNN CNN is the is the name first name in news. Right. I mean, this is the big the big one, right? Then I heard kashogi because show. Kashogi kashogi. Yes, kashogi is the one that. I think is I thought it was like the main. That's what I thought. I thought that we've been hearing that name since the eighties with Adnan kashogi who was a big arms dealer. Yeah. He was in the he was mentioned in the Iran contra hearings. And so this is a name that's been was kashogi that doesn't that's not a determining factor anymore. Like if you call Copenhagen for five hundred years, it just turns the Copenhagen one just start saying copen hawks bullets Kabul, Kabul guitar guitar. Nope. It's cutter. And then it was gutter for awhile. I remember. Yeah. I don't know. I don't know how this happens Osama bin Laden, then it was awesome bin Laden. Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda, and was Q U idea and QA EDA all different spellings. I don't understand it. So I heard Kush Kush. Khashoggi initially then kashogi and now on the way in today. I heard a New York Times person say Kush kashogi. Oh, you really Shoji? It's a whole new one. And now we're like a week into the story, and there's already three different pronunciations. This guy's name. Can we settle on something? I want to call him. Bob. I'm fine with that. I mean, what's his first name Jamal? I'm fine. Just let's call them Jamal Jamal was killed at the embassy. We can say it was Jamal. And what does all know, it's Jamal Khashoggi Khashoggi or kashogi. And then whatever the pronunciation is tomorrow. But you're right. We gotta get together on that. Because that drives me out of my mind irritating. Yeah. It is. I never understood the Usov Ozama thing. How did that happen? Why why did that happen? It's even less. Explicable? Right. The here you have a situation where it's it's the name is spelled the same. But we're pronouncing different. At least you can understand that. Oh, some to use some they changed a letter. They just said, no, it's not a no, it's an it's a you. Now the guy went from like mid range pic in kickball to last pick. I. When does this happen changing, the the guy's dead? No one ever said, you know, Oshima's wrong. It's it should be you SABA SABA. No, no, just started in people just started using it, very strange. It is very strange and like some of it. I I guess I understand like, for example, here we say the tiny little country that JAMES BOND goes to the casino is Monaco. If you're over there, they call it more nocco. Real everyone calls at Monaco. Now. I've never heard that. I will say here's another one. Here we say Mazda. For the car. If you listen as as a Canadian sport celebrity, I do quite often to Toronto Blue Jays games on the radio. They say Mazda. It's Masdar of Toronto. That's really irritating. I wouldn't listen to that. I would say I mean wouldn't be pissed off Hoste. They'll call us master. We're not NAFTA. We are. I've also noticed the Jaguars are being called Jaguars QR on the commercial Jaguar what they come up with a name on your own. Maybe you can describe to us. What how how it's pronounced? But what is a word? We already know. A hundred years. Yeah. Stop it. We it's an animal. Yes. Not just a car. It's an animal to write. Nobody ever says Jaguars. The Jacksonville Jaguars. No, I think that's I think that's Jaguar trying to seem refined. Right. Like, there's something something a little snooty about the way they pronounce Jaguars like us. Stupid animal over there. Ripping up my dog and listen Jackie water. Would you be dot com? Jaguars over there. Ripping up my tummy turn into my dog terrible. But luckily, I fell with my bones on top of it.

"Colonial Saudi genders Jamaa has Shoji wrote before his disappearance over two weeks ago in the article Jamal talks about the importance of a free press in the Middle East and the pressures and threats journalists in the region have to deal with regularly. Turkish officials say he was skilled inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on the second of October. When he went to collect paperwork. See you could marry his Turkish fiance. Saudi Arabia has denied killing him. However, gruesome details set to be of Mr. Husham, jeez. Last moments have emerged in a range of media outlets. The US has asked Turkey to provide a recording which Turkey says provides strong evidence of murder inside the Saudi council. It has rates. Shrunk has raised strong feelings elsewhere in the world to including here in the UK, which is working out whether it should rethink its close relationship with Saudi Arabia. Lloyd, Russell mall is an MP from the opposition labour party and also a member of the British parliament's international development committee. The evidence is mounting now. And the latest information that we seem to be getting is that Saudi Arabia is talking about kind of rogue agents may be all someone who went over the top. So even the chewed what Saudi Arabia's seems to be changing to a flex the reality that he was assassinated. And that, of course is outrageous. And quite rightly deserves the condemnation of the international community. I mean, there is a sense of irony. That is Turkey is leading the condemnation, and they are a country is locked up two hundred and forty journalists. But let's put that aside for a second. Also, put aside for a second in your reckoning many other alleged atrocities carried out by Saudi Arabia, which you believe should have attracted more attention before this hassle g affair, of course, the particular fair is a moment where people in the media. And the think tank worlds, and in the academia world to cost who knew him and who adopted in kind of followed his writings and his works outrage because there's a personal connection. And that is how news and an emotion works is we have to have a personal connection with death to really feel it. But the reality is Saudi Arabia has been killing thousands of people in the backed by British and American forces and weapons in a war. That was totally unnecessary. It was an internal fight following the Arab spring. The of course, should've required international action for peace and conflict resolution and instead Britain and America supported Saudi Arabia to destroy huge swathes of the Yemen. Taking one side of the conflict. One solution suggested by your body. The labor party is a restriction on arms sales to Saudi Arabia. And yet when you in government, the labor party sold arms to Saudi Arabia. Yes. And that particular deal is one is still going through the colts. We now see it in the supreme court. So if it's not clear there was a large investigation of for serious Ford based on that deal. Look, I think no one can be confused the labor party's and new management in Britain. So I'm not going to defend many right things in the past. But there were some gross wrong things that we did as well at them. The problem is now the continuing sales of weapons is in the light of what's happening in the m and what was happening in the Yemen didn't happen previously. But it is still happening now in America. We see the Senate starting to a strict and ask questions about the ongoing sales Germany has stopped them. Spain has stopped them to the only one standing in track to defend the indefensible it's not just about arms sales. We sell the fighter planes. We service the fighter planes, ongoing personnel. Maintain the flight path for these planes and British and American intelligence size where the bombs hit the only thing that British America's don't do is fly the physical plane this survey dangerous situation because curate radicalization against our country when we haven't even had a proper debate and vote about whether it is right to engage in this war, and the reality is we should have not engaged the very first moments and said, this is an internal conflict not something that you throw oil at. Loyd. Russell MO from the opposition labour party here in the UK. You're listening to Newsday shaima and James with this morning. Of course that is one of our top headlines. The US asking Turkey for that. Recording. It said to provide the evidence that Szymanski was killed in the Saudi consulate in stumble. More on that. Of course, online BBC, news dot com. Other headlines the head of the world. Trade organization has warned that escalating trade wars pose real risks to the global economy. The first thousands of hundreds trying to make their way on master the US have reached the Mexican border spoon now without a Soros. Thank you boxer. Sowell. Canelo. Alvarez has signed.

The tennis world number-one Simona Halla has withdrawn from the season ending WTI finals taunt with a back injury. That saw her plot of the current tournament in Moscow. She's called it a tough decision. But one that's better for her health. The former president and CEO of USA gymnastics has been arrested for tampering with evidence in relation to the Larry Nassar's sex abuse scandal. Steve Penney had been indicted by grand jury for allegedly removing documents from a training center during the investigation into the former team doctor who was sentenced to more than three hundred years for molesting young gymnasts. And you're saying both has turned down an offer to become a professional footballer in Malta, the country's champions Valetta had offered him a two year deal. But bolts agents says the eight-time Olympic sprint champion is not interested growing chain date. Azzurri's? Thank you very much. President Trump has moved to withdraw from a one hundred and forty four year old treaty, the determines international postal rates. Matt Davis from our business desk is here. So why Trump done this? Well, he says it's because it places US businesses and a disadvantage under this treaty. International mailing rates aren't governed by the universal postal union and shipments, especially small packages from developing countries are subsidized and China is still considered a developing country under this treaty. So. So it's export is get cheaper rates. Now. Jamie small done makes mugs in the United States. He says the system is unfair. It's cheaper to ship. The product in China to the US eight thousand miles they need is for our company to ship. Turn neighbor twenty six steps away. It's such a big difference at LA was down to price out of the market. Well, Patrick Hedren is with the national association of manufacturers in the US. He represents companies like those of Jamie, small down the big issue that we wanted to tackle was the unfairness between shippers that were originating their packets from China versus those were originating them from inside the US. So the bottom line is that the subsidy itself was the problem that if you were a non US person, you're outside of the country and certain fate remark. It's you would get a subsidized shipping. Right. So now with the White House getting rid of this does it level the playing field for you. This is a major step to level the playing field that's in large part because the agreement itself. Is a one country one vote system in which China is considered still basically a developing country that becomes a very difficult problem to solve in a one-country-one-vote system because China can simply vote against your proposal to move them into a developed nation status. That's Patrick Patrick Hedren of the national association of manufacturers in the United States. Matt many, thanks. Mineral has been discovered inside.

"Tonight on all in, I just saw with the king of Saudi Arabia, Donald Trump investigates the king firmly denied any knowledge of it and presents an alternate theory of the death of a Washington Post columnist. It sounded to me like babies could have been rogue killers tonight. Multiple reports at the kingdom of Saudi Arabia is also floating the president theory bus, I will give you a million dollars. If you take a test Joe's your NTN.

Time, I'm president and you're not parkland survivor ama- Gonzales on her campaign to get young people to vote. We. Kids don't know what we're talking about that we're too young to understand the government works all in starts right now. Good evening from New York. I'm Chris as this morning, the president of the states, Florida wild theory that so called rogue killers could be to blame for the death of missing journalist, Jamal, Shoji tonight there's new reporting. The kingdom of Saudi Arabia is considering changing its story, and it's lining up with the present suggestion to say, the death was a result of the kidnapping gone wrong. The Washington Post columnist was last seen almost two weeks ago walking into a Saudi consulate and Turkey, and he has not been seen in public since Turkish officials have said they're confident because Shoji was murdered and dismembered inside the consulate, citing audio and video recordings. They say, prove it and for nearly two weeks, Saudi Arabia has consistently denied the accusation even trying to sell story that kashogi had left the consulate. But tonight comes new reporting that the Saudi government is now considering a different explanation and b. c. news reporting tonight that Saudi Arabia's government is discussing a plan to admit that missing journalist, Jamal kashogi was. Killed after entering the Saudi consulate in stumble on source told NBC news. The kingdom will claim that rogue operatives killed kashogi during an interrogation or rendition attempt that went horribly awry. There's that phrase again, rogue operatives news report goes on to say that this plan could give crown prince Mohammad bin Salman quote, plausible deniability, say he didn't order the killing it didn't know about it. In other words, Saudi Arabia apparently just meant to kidnap interrogate, possibly torture, Jamaica Shoji, and his murder was just simply an unfortunate accident. Now, this news comes mere hours after the president of the United States, took it upon himself to stand before the cameras and defend the honor of the Saudi monarchy. King firmly denied any knowledge of it. He didn't really know. Maybe I don't wanna get into his mind, but it sounded to me like maybe these have been rogue killers buono. It's unclear if the rogue killers offices something Donald Trump thought up on his own, or if it came from Saudi King salmon or the president, United States was trying to set the stage for what very much looks like a cover up of murder from the Saudi government here without former deputy national security visor under President, Barack Obama, an MSNBC political contributor, Ben Rhodes, the phrasings of rogue operators. It sounds like the president was floating. The cover of problem for the Saudis this morning, right? From Trump's lips to your reporting and look crispy, very clear here. Anybody who's worked with the Saudis knows that is a top down centralized decision making tree there in that has only become more so under Muhammad salmon, the notion that this kind of operation fifteen people flying Turkey to minimum render a very prominent journalist, the notion that some would know about that and wouldn't afforded it is completely unbelievable to anybody. I think who said. Any experience working with this. I, it seems to me that this is very similar in some ways to what we've seen with the Russians and scribble where they attempted to murder this guy with chemical weapons on English soil, and basically a lot of yada, yada, yada, gas lighting..

The leaks coming from Turkish officials have gone to different meeting, could ING Subba information that you are getting what you've been able to glean from the situation have the Saudis been sloppy in this?

You know, it's a fine line between negligible sloppiness and willful sloppiness for whatever reason it was done. Carelessly, I should say at this point it's just the accusations of Turkish and they have made his accusations by name, but it may be that the Saudi government just feels like.

And there was one poll probably about three or four weeks ago right now that had Rourke leading by two points. Otherwise, every single poll I've seen in this has still shown crews ahead. David, David, Ignatius obviously we still are about a month out and I think it was Harold Macmillan or British Prime minister after him. That said in politics week is a lifetime. Well, three, four weeks, a very long time. There's no doubt you look at those Senate numbers. They have been impacted by Cavanaugh just curious, actually, what oppose like a week from now ten days from now they can be quite different. That's the right question. We are in a post cavenaugh bouts for the Republicans. They're motivated. We'll have to see how all these factors home on abroad play. You could have foreign crises, for example, coming out of the apparent death of my colleague democra- Shoji and the Trump administration's reaction. But you know, it's, it's a very fluid period. I fast added by Steve's view that this this is diverging that there's a house narrative in a Senate narrative. Again, you know, good candidates wave of surprising news and Steve that those numbers could move around. I'm sure. Yeah, no, absolutely. I mean, if you look at the at the house side in this thing, I highlight the suburban areas there where those the obvious opportunities for Democrats, there's twenty five districts out there that Hillary Clinton won in twenty sixteen, but that are now represented by Republicans. And when you look at the ones, particularly you right outside Kansas City, right outside New York City, New Jersey, right outside DC in southern California outside Denver, I can think of another one you're seeing. I think some of the most significant movement away from those Republican incumbents away from those Republican helps each the question to me on the house side has been, I sort of believe in those areas we've we've seen and we'll continue to see a Blue Wave. The question is, is that we've going to get bigger, is it going to expand? Some of those districts were Trump was winning by five ten, you know, even more points for Democrats to get the house to get the house by a comfortable margin, even that's where that wave needs to expand to.
