president. in ways that suggest that they are doing the bidding of the regime to a large extent and so yes i would i would consider if anything the catholic church to be more trustworthy than the electoral commission. security forces in sudan have pursued and attacked injured protest says as they went inside a hospital in the country's second largest city. the country has seen three weeks of demonstrations now and they began over the rising price of bread but they quickly transformed into demands for longtime president omar al bashir to step down morgan ripples from the capital culture. friday's prayers in sudan ended with calls for more protests demanding the resignation of president obama to be here and the calls were heeded in several cities security forces again fired tear gas at some protestors even hospitals have been in the firing line in what amnesty international is describing as an outrageous violation of international law security forces time to hospital on wednesday they were looking for protesters

a partition for disaster relief to be diverted toward building the wall instead and that may not be very popular with the american public now all of this said trump has publicly wavered back and forth in the last few days even in the last few hours about whether or not to make border disaster declaration and he said today at the white house that if congress does not give him the border while funding he still will make that declaration this is more of what he said i'd rather do it because this is something that congress should usually do this is something that the democrats should do i don't want to give an easy way out of something as simple as this not only simple it's easy. it's going to europe you know we have a country that is under siege you could actually you know a lot of people don't like the word invasion we have
