him of abusing his trade authority given the mounting evidence farm states are being hammered by trump's america first trade agenda still the troubled ministration is asking leading its fight in addition to tariffs already in place white house is preparing to impose tariffs on billions more chinese goods kimberly held get al-jazeera washington well bill hoagland is a senior vice president at the bipartisan policy center he's joining us now from washington d.c. we appreciate your time sir given that farmers make up a significant part of donald trump's core base do you think that they're going to be satisfied with this payment as opposed to actually being able to sell their crops freely. i don't think so american farmers are basically free marketeers and they want to produce and compete in a global market they would prefer much better. the opportunity to trade openly
8:34 am
and compete internationally and sell their goods accordingly and not be recipient of government dole such as what the president is proposing here with the twelve billion dollars in expenditures that he would put out to somehow appease the farm population will they take the assistance obviously they probably will but i would say that that is not in the nature of the american farmer is one who he and she is one who want to compete and in disclosure market and not depend upon government bailouts let me ask you about the timing of this that secondly alluded to in her package there of course is if i understand it correctly rice payments for this are going to come fairly close to the midterm elections which are coming up in november often farmers do you think going to make the distinction between the bailout and the timing of the bailout so close to that election. well i think i think of the production cycle in this country of course is the

8:36 am
looking for this kind of payback from the government as they become affected by the tower of. that's a good question my sense is that it just so happens that the president has the authority under existing wall to make these payments through a depression era program that was put in place in one nine hundred thirty three called the commodity credit corp and the authority to make these payments is already there and does not require congressional action as it relates to other industries there are there are not similar types of programs from my perspective and that would require congressional action and therefore i do not expect that while he may propose this i don't think that congress would be willing to go along with additional adding to the federal deficit by additional bailouts here again i think if the if there are unfair trail horrendous and everything i do apologize i'm very sorry but time is against us bill hoagland is

israeli security the world really doesn't know what the deal is can you explain more for us i don't know about you know a friend and i can tell you one thing we will not allow the iranians to be in their base and that our borders in the golan heights this is our policy and by means that are now with very clear about it with him it is to put in when you meet mr trump wherever he was meeting with are the same we would not allow the iranians to be at their bases next week while i do have an agreement. we have a policy we don't have an agreement inside the council meeting the israeli ambassador went on to blame the escalation of violence in gaza on hamas while his palestinian counterpart said it was the result of israeli on going occupation and aggression that sweden has the presidency of the council this month it sam bacile his assessment was sobering there are you know questions to be put whether there are real preparations for peace in the region we have constant bandaids on the

james bays al-jazeera the united nations israel says it's partially reopening its only commercial crossing with the besieged gaza strip and had been closed on july the ninth with only goods that israel considered for humanitarian use allowed to enter following the closer they are interested to supply the palestinians had been cut from eight hours to just six hours a day which are stratford has more from the crossing. so trucks now have started taking this vital fuel this this oil this petrol and this cooking gas from the israeli side they the trucks arrive from gaza they fill up and then go back across the border there's great relief here in gaza there was a a press statement released by the palestinian healthful thora to the smalling saying that unless this fuel starts to be delivered at mediately then health services were a risk of actually having to be closed down and we understand that the power
8:59 am
station is still not operating that stopped yesterday there were only one of full turbines that were operating in that power station before that closure and that's a different issue the power station does not rely on oil from this border has been relying on it to be supplied from egypt thomas says it simply does not have enough money to pay for that vital fuel for the power station is also the issues of the amount of money that people simply have in their pockets to pay their electricity bills and this will stem from the big political rift between hamas and fatah that is going on now since hamas took power here in two thousand and seven for the last year and a half the pollen is the dominated palestinian authority has not paid the salaries for thousands of civil servants here and hamas says is as a as a result of that what they call pay their electricity bills so the gas the oil for
9:00 am
the power station cannot be bull as i say there is a sense of temporary relief here now that they saw oil gas at this this cooking gas is being transported into gaza but of course so much depends on maintaining this cease fire between hamas and israel after what can only be described as the largest escalation of violence of the last couple of weeks since the two thousand and fourteen war.
