to put all these people they're all individuals the children that would like to get back story this place has become a complete wreck you have to hear all of them and to treat them with something that in respects. risking diplomatic isolation the u.s. is re-imposing sanctions against iran in a move that's out of step with all major world powers. hello i'm down in jordan this is our jazeera live from doha also coming up so i think we're going to start the brushes extremely. well have a nominee for president trump says he could choose a successor to supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg as early as next week. more than 300 people are arrested in belarus as protesters march for another day
3:01 am
calling on the president to step down. and calls for sudan's government to do more to prevent future disasters the tackles the worst flooding in a century. the u.s. has broken with almost every other member of the u.n. security council on dream post sanctions on iran washington insisted as a legal right to do so was part of the iran nuclear deal even though it pulled out of the agreement 2 years ago our diplomatic editor james bays has more. it's aroud it's even pitted the us against some of its closest allies it's now over 5 years since the iran nuclear deal was signed in vienna joining the negotiations the us team under the leadership of the very end secretary of state john kerry devised a mechanism called snap back if iran breached its commitments all internet.
3:02 am
sanctions could snap back into place but that's not the way things played out the united states will withdraw from the iran nuclear deal it was the u.s. under president trump that pulled out of the deal 2 years ago. despite this in objections from the rest of the international community the u.s. still argues it could trigger a snapback the one thing that the previous administration got right is they created provision where under u.n. security council resolution 2231. any one of the nations identified there had the right to say we want the sanctions that were in place prior to this that moment to snap back and that's what will do the rest of the world have ignored the u.s. declaration and in some ways more important than snap back is what happens on november the 3rd but one of the diplomats who negotiated the iran deal told me even if joe biden is elected president told that day getting back into the deal might
3:03 am
not be that easy i mean i think it's as easy as some people have made it out to be that president i'm certain i want that yes and then everything we go back to school and see how i think actually your army wants you argue that the man out on station or the sanctions or other countries receive the united states i mean out of. your ass i think is going to be much more complicated than just. yet diplomats say behind the scenes a great deal of pressure was put on the other members of the security council to support the u.s. position only one country the small nation of dominican republic did say whatever washington says it seems that the plan to snap back sanctions has failed james bays al-jazeera at the united nations so how did we get to this point well in . 2015 a raft of u.n.
3:04 am
sanctions on tehran was suspended following the signing of that landmark accord that also included a so-called snapback clause which allowed sanctions to be reimposed if terror on didn't keep its end of the deal the u.s. is now citing this very close even though it backed out of the deal in 2018 the u.s. also trying to push through an indefinite extension of an iranian arms ban shuttle to end on october 18th but failed well doug bandow was a senior fellow at the cato institute he says the trumpet ministration has misjudged iran well it's quite embarrassing for the united states it only got the dominican republic a very small country very close to the u.s. to support it 13 members refused to recognize this the u.s. tried to bring it to the security council for discussion and was rejected by the president of the security council at the time so look us looks very foolish and very isolated for the you know that
3:05 am
a country of this power that has dominated the united nations for so long to get so little support shows how badly the trumpet ministration is misjudged this issue or what the administration will have to do is create its own sanctions on this like it is done on other issues because no other member of the security council that matters is going to recognize them and most members of the united nations will not recognize them so the only way the united states can move forward would be to have its own sanctions on other companies on other countries and that will create additional hostility which the u.s. has run into because the prior sanctions that applied apply to european companies and others so this again is another problem for the united states. u.s. president donald trump says he could announce a nominee to replace supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg as early as next week ginsburg died on friday after a long battle with cancer democrats and even
3:06 am
a few republicans say her replacement should not be nominated until after the u.s. presidential election trump says he will most likely nominate a woman. well i have a short list i've had a short list for a while we added up for. people on the listed bridges list we have about 45 altogether i do indeed have a few are but i've gotten to know i've gotten to know many of them by that is probably from a legal standpoint from a. sophisticated understanding of the law from a constitutional standpoint i think it's the greatest list ever assembled and i think that the other side should show their radical left list and i think you'll be surprised at what will be going on in the. well he's very highly respected i can say begin to be. i could see most likely it would be a woman yeah i think i could say that it would be
3:07 am
a woman i would if somebody were to ask me now i would say that a woman would be. in 1st place yes the choice of a woman i would say would certainly be. appropriate. say it however she's an extraordinary person i've heard a credible beggs about her i don't know her. she just panicked and a highly respected miami highly respected. but one republican senator disagrees with trump susan collins from the state of maine says and i quote the decision on a lifetime appointment to the supreme court should be made by the president who is elected on the bamboo thurgood that's a position republicans also took back in 2016 on the barack obama when he tried to nominate a judge to the court before that year's election where particular hain is in washington d.c. she explained the position the republicans are taking. oh you just heard the president is promising the crowd that he's going to fill that seat he told
3:08 am
reporters before leaving the white house that he likely would nominate a woman and he would do it soon possibly by this coming week unclear if he's going to wait for the funeral of ruth bader ginsburg really was like within the hour after they announced that she had passed that the senate majority leader mitch mcconnell came out and said he was going to fill the seat despite the president that he himself said under president obama so here's the problem for the president and senator mcconnell they have $45.00 days to the election most supreme court justices takes months that in normal times they meet with pretty much every u.s. senator it's really a lobbying campaign to try and get this done $45.00 days that's going to be tough the other tough thing for the senator is what his own members have said on the record don't forget it was in march the president barack obama put up a nominee and the republicans at the time said no no you cannot put up a justice in the lection year so now we're $45.00 days but we're seen senators like
3:09 am
lindsey graham who came out and swore that he would never put up a supreme court nominee in the middle of a presidential campaign he's now saying that he's fine with it that he thinks they should do it in the 45 days but he does senator mcconnell doesn't have huge numbers he just needs a couple of his own members to say no we're not going to do that to really have a tough fight at his hands so far we've heard from 2 senators and 2 female republican senators who are pro choice say that they believe that this should be held until after the election so all eyes are going to be on a couple of republican senators they have very little time on the clock and very little room to maneuver with when it comes to the actual numbers colombia's president just called for his venezuelan counterpart to be prosecuted as a war criminal even to kate made the announcement during a joint news conference with the u.s. secretary of state mike pump aoe who's on a tour of south american countries that is when i'm president nicolas maduro accuse pompei of wool mongering and said u.s. efforts to depose him have backfired he's done there sean. the u.s.

3:15 am
impose sanctions on iran washington says it has a legal right to do so as part of the iran nuclear deal even though it pulled out of the agreement iran's ambassador to the u.n. says the u.s. deadline was false and illegal. because president donald trump says he could announce a nominee to replace supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg as early as next week ginsburg died on friday trump says his nominee will likely be a woman. at least 2 republican senators have joined the democrats in rejecting a vote on ginsberg's replacement for the election that's the position republicans took in 2016 under barack obama when he nominated his candidate for the supreme court. returning to the coronavirus pandemic now nearly 31000000 people have been confirmed infected worldwide and almost a 1000000 people have died it's led to concerns of a 2nd wave of infections the united states india brazil they have more cases than any other countries the death toll in the u.s. alone stands at more than 200000 in europe countries from denmark to greece of
3:16 am
announced new restrictions france has registered its highest daily number of infections since the start of the pandemic and. spain's capital madrid is gearing up for a lock down that will impact $850000.00 people in the u.k. meanwhile prime minister barak's johnson says people who break self isolation rules will face a $13000.00 fight well dr brad can hear from the university of exeter medical school he says a lack of public health messaging has led to a surge in infections i wouldn't call it a 2nd wave i would call it a continuation of the 1st wave so the 1st wave case numbers went down when we started to go into lockdown and restricted movements and and interactions with fellow human beings and as soon as schools businesses and lockdown is lifted and we start creating with fellow human beings the case numbers go up and this is
3:17 am
what we have seen in europe and now we are seeing in the united kingdom to unfortunately we haven't been very good with car messages and what is needed are continuous good understandable messages that the worst has not gone away don't drop your guard be careful even in the summer months when of course the infections go down because we are outdoors people needed that constant reminding and i think we've made a little mistake big mistake actually in not continuously reinforcing our public health message which is the wire says that be careful a growing number of coronavirus cases among refugees on the greek island of less boss is causing concern at least $214.00 people have tested positive the 1st case was detected at the start of this month 9000 refugees have been moved into a new tented camp the previous one europe's largest burn down 10 days ago
3:18 am
authorities are testing them before they go in. now donald trump says he would approve a deal to allow the social media op tic toc to keep operating in the us he said an agreement with the tech firm oracle and supermarket chain wal-mart to take over the american operations of the chinese owned would get his blessing the white house had applied pressure on the company over what it called national security concerns let's bring in larry maggette he's a tech analyst and the c.e.o. of comic safety dot com larry good to have you back on the program again so trump now says look if you he will approve this tick tock oracle deal after threatening to ban the chinese app in the u.s. so what does this all mean then for tick tocks u.s. operations well it means presumably if they mean that he stays with shane gets on it could be an on again off again that oracle would run at least that data and the u.s. operations in oracle of course is very good when it comes to online security they don't have any experience with consumer products but of course wal-mart does so
3:19 am
perhaps a oracle wal-mart combination might make some sense but remember this is a product that's years primarily by young people teenagers and very young adults so having a enterprise related company running it could be problematic if oracle were doing it all by itself here larry i'm trying to now says the deal now addresses u.s. national security concerns but he's given no details whatsoever so what exactly is the threat or is this really about trump's ongoing bust up with china. i think it's mostly political although if i were trump i'd be careful about alienating so many young people who used to get caught many of them are voters but having said that i think it's partially a good relationship with china and partially the fact that it is at least see a radically costly bulls are by cancer the company that owns the cot has access to a certain amount of data from u.s. citizen so the issue is will oracle make sure that the data doesn't get into the chinese hands and if that's the deal the china might make some of the money but not have access to the data then that could certainly address u.s.
3:20 am
security concerns larry let me just pick up on a point you made earlier because many observers say look this all recording is just terrible i mean oracle as you say isn't a consumer facing business that deals in software for database management it certainly has no experience in social media platforms so where is the synergy here that i think the synergy is number one the fact that the c.e.o. of the founder of oracle larry ellison and trump are buddies joe ellison has raised money for trump as the c.e.o. of the company but he there's a relationship there that's a big part of it my pinion and the only other synergy is that oracle knows how to run data centers and that is one important aspect of it frankly i think microsoft would have made more sense because microsoft does have consumer products and also knows how to run data centers but for whatever reason the microsoft deal seems to have not been approved by the government so now we've got oracle and it's unclear what wal-mart's role is going to be a lot of just a final thought to you know the chinese government has to sign off on this deal for
3:21 am
it to go ahead but beijing has already said it will only agree if bite dance doesn't have to transfer they ought to fish and intelligence algorithms that drive the tick tocks business so could this issue scuttle the deal do you think. well if i think it could be because it depends on what the algorithm they're doing it the algorithm they're accessing the data of their customers and that's data is being gone going to china then it could if the algorithm is simply running oracle's computers but by cancer owns it then it might not be a problem larry might get great to get your thoughts thanks again for talking to al-jazeera thank you larry thank you so much now sudan's government is being urged to do more to prevent damage and loss of life from heavy flooding half a 1000000 people have been forced from their homes and more than 100 have died there are warnings of more flash floods as authorities work to stop disease spreading in affected villages behalf of the reports now from cynthia
