We'll get to that big story Iran shutting down any hope for talks after president truck hit back with new sanctions. Overnight Iran said the road for diplomacy is permanently closed and it comes hours after the president signed off on new economic penalties. Targeting Iran's supreme leader and other top officials. And it comes just as the president claims he will not need congressional approval if he decides to take military action. ABC's Trevor all of begins our coverage from Washington good morning cover. Good morning Kenneth good morning Judy yet just this morning national security advisor John Bolton who are sources say wanted the president to launch a strike against Iran last week. Is now saying that the US wants to negotiate with the Ron they just Mitterrand to walk through that open door but Iran is of course now saying that is not going to happen because of the actions taken by the truck administration. Overnight tensions once again rising between the United States and Iran Monday president trump signing an executive order for new sanctions targeting Iran's supreme leader giving the authority to lock up billions of dollars in the Ayatollah is assets in hopes of forcing Iran to the negotiating table. So I look forward to. Discussing whatever I have to discuss would anybody that wants to speak. In the meantime who knows what's going to happen I can only tell you we cannot ever let Iran have a nuclear weapon in the won't happen. So far those new sanctions appear to have led to the opposite of their intended effect overnight a spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry calling the president's order fruitless. And saying the sanctions mean the permanent closure of the road of diplomacy. Iran's ambassador to the United Nations saying the US has no respect for international law and order to give John Knox started dialogue with somebody police threatened him. We as intimidating him. With limited options moving forward the threat of war remains a possibility CNN now reporting senate Democrats are weighing a filibuster on the annual defense policy bill to try to force a vote on an amendment. Requiring the president get congressional approval before launching any potential attack against Iran. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says the president already needs congress to sign off on a strike and the president telling the hill he doesn't think so. I like the idea of keeping kindness and breast but I wouldn't have to do. Monday the United States presented evidence to the UN security council of why they believe that the drone Iran shot down last week was flying in international air space but Iran says. They have what they say is irrefutable evidence that it was flying in a Ronnie and airspace and they wanted to presented. But they were not allowed in the hearing today. Kenneth and Trevor in addition to lashing out against those sanctions Iran's president is now taking a personal shot at president trump. Think he is afflicted by mental retardation. Yeah so this is a new level of inflammatory statements that we have not yet seen between United States and around the president of Iran on top of calling the sanctions outrageous that idiotic is that it's the White House that is. Afflicted by mental retardation you cannot imagine this is going to be good for. The presumed diplomacy even though Iran has said that that road is shut down. But also this is not the first time that a world leader who the president was sparring with has made comments about his mental capacity we don't want seventeen it. Kim Jong-un North Korea's leader called him mentally deranged and now the president calls him off friends so while so of course it's not going to make things so go more smoothly it might not be it deal. That is a good point Trevor we have seen these war of words spoke for Tehran and Washington thanks much for joining us this morning thank you anytime. And some other headlines we're watching the treasury department's inspector general is launching an investigation into orbit and to why the proper administration. As the late placing here it comment on the twenty dollar bill.

About a wife who fakes her own disappearance framing her husband food tease his lawyer says Jennifer wrote a blonde girl type novel years ago but her family says she wrote the unpublished book back in 2002. Long before meeting foe tease. They called the defense's theory a smokescreen. I think that during any comparison to a work of fiction. Does an incredible disservice to the family. Especially to the children. But to ever really cares about Jennifer because. This is not a film this is not a novel this is our real life. Book due lows and his girlfriend have pleaded not guilty to the charges in this case. Well a team effort saved a window washers life in Philadelphia.

Windows Mobile actually came out years ahead of apple IOS and Google's Android put gates says he didn't give mobile the supported needed. He estimated that his mistake get that's cost Microsoft about 400. Billion. Dollars. So what's also interesting about this is that one of the executives at the time told them you know don't worry like you know another acorda mark Garrett is on BBDO like essentially right now there's a waste don't going to that. We'll fast or all these years of Smartphones. Apple phone 400 billion Apple iPhone has the good last it has against them. Coming up the cost of the royal family to British taxpayers why they've blown up by higher bill this year than in the past to keep leaving the lights on. More after this. Welcome back now to the race for 220 several presidential candidates want to pay off the student loan debt of millions of Americans and we're here for Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren. Each have a plan and we're taking an in depth look. At each ahead of the first debate ABC's Brad milky has more. He has yet campaigns are expecting each candidate to get nearly seven minutes to talk at this week's first democratic debate which means you got to choose the topics you Eric out. And the topic a lot of Americans care about student. Bernie Sanders became the latest candidate to unveil a plan about student debt and his is sweeping he wants to forgive all college debt. All of it. To the tune of one point six trillion dollars he says his plan would be paid for by taxing investors. We talked to sandy bombs he's an economist at skewed more college and the urban institute. And we Esther how his plan stacks up against his rivals. This tidbit Elisabeth line doesn't say we're gonna figure I'll bet she says only up to 50000 dollars per bar work. And there are few borrowers who are within 50000 dollars mostly they went to graduate school. And not for everybody. If your income is about 250000. Dollars we won't forgive any of your debt and if it's above a 100000 dollars it'll be lessened 50000 dollars. But that's most people prominent a lot of people. And the reality is that most people have student debt. Actually a less than 101000 dollars most people would default and they student loans are less than 101000 dollars so they don't need all that forgiveness that any get a small checked it can be very grateful for it. But that people with the lower incomes are not people who went to college long announced by and large to borrow that much money. She actually said yeah college debt is truly a crisis for lot of American families but she also said. Lots of Americans are suffering from debt right now. Graduate students really the neediest ones out there now proponents would say this would kick start an entire generation. Near fort the larger economy with that we'll have a lot more on just. What these plans would look like on star here later this morning listen on apple podcasts receiver podcasting app connect Kenneth. And when it comes a student loan debt now you really should be Republican or democratic issue and right we're here for because this idiot get rid of stealing. Is having someone's bland yes I want someone please yet to be having somebody Americans and young people are. I don't even debt. Right we we said that making a joke about it but your absolutely right because this impacts. I mean Americans across the gimmick right so many people so. Any plan would do. Well let's go across the pond now to the London bureau where llamas on its keeping an eye on the biggest international news good morning Lama so let's start. In Vietnam where an American man has been send us a twelve years in jail for what was described as an attempt to overthrow the Communist nation's government. Yeah I good morning to you guys this is an interesting cases of that gates about a 55 year old man called Michael and win. Who was born in Vietnam but moved to the states when he was at kids so that makes him an American citizen. And he would go to Vietnam every year to visit from him friends but lost it in July he was arrested for attempting to overthrow the state. Now the his lawyer says that that's absolutely no evidence shutting him of planning or being in the planning stages of attacking government offices with petrol bombs. Beyond the sound that he's been sentenced now to twelve years in prison. We know that once he's that's sentence he will be deported what we don't know at this point is whether or not they will appeal. This case and the charges. And also the sentence. Now and wanting to bag and mind is that. Protests are back in Vietnam because the Communist governments just simply doesn't tolerate them so it is a pretty serious crime. And the protests that yours you printed it never happened correct. Exactly yes it didn't but that the government said that it it's hot in off. Information it to sentence him to twelve years in prison but yes you apps that you write it didn't take place. Where is seeing an incredible image of a crater that spontaneously. Appeared in a field in Germany and sort out claiming aliens while police think it was a bomb that was left over from world war two and they think that he you know their other runs out there. A yes just amaze amazing I mean the aerial image. Of this crater is just unbelievable. That this is an explosion happened overnight on Sunday night navy Germantown have didn't. And bomb disposal acts but say that it's with almost half city certainty that this type enormous crater was. Create sids by a World War II bomb that was dropped by a plane in fact they think it's a 550 pound bomb. They created this crater that was 33 feet Y eight. And use it interesting information for you and on detonated bombs off. Found in Gemini and this is a bit but I didn't know the destiny sect kind decomposed to the point where it can actually set itself off which is. Quite a scary thought when you think about. And oh yeah definitely am just thankful. We're thankful no one was hurt idiotic dilution there. Exactly but Dalai Lama before you leave your taxes. I hear they go to this family. They are freeloaders. Things like there are on welfare. Getting your tax dollar another royal family. So that the US out more do you tell information about how much they're costing taxpayers over there. Gases but timing DA when while found the public really pay attention to how much the world found he has cost of the public. Because that partly funded by the tax passed. And it times out it has been really in that revealed. That's. And the duke and duchess of Sussex has spent a whopping 3.5 million dollars renovating their home and wins problem cottage. Which house some people up in arms about it because it's much more gun was anticipates it. Don't forget that this was a and property that was renovated ends. S at and tons into a five bedroom house. Not a policy saying luck yes it did spend they did spend not much money but on fixed does and other things the couple paid for about and fittings for example the couple paid for got themselves. And the palace saying that this the they're an amount was already evolved to be spent on fall more cautious. Anyway to maintain its union its great stunned. So trying to you know sort of backtrack a little bent that yeah does have a lot of people talking about at this point is creating quite a bit and. I would not be wheat we saw earlier breakdown of the numbers for our viewers in equals about. A dollar 58 per taxpayer but since it's your money. That means you get invited over to fraud more per team in front that you re saying right Hewitt thanks sadly not I'm still waiting mine and buys yes and I don't want my money I thought. I'm a fascinating because we know that's how much the taxpayers. Gave but. Maybe that renovation in the possible it cost more than that three million I mean yeah I think when of their own money. Exactly yes when you went into the suns when you sit down and and look at all the sons and see how much they've spends on it yes it probably does equal to mold the public. That the attacks fans have escaped to 3.5 million dollars of taking extra. The palace says the couple paid for them to vote for it themselves. It's interesting that I did yes we're trying to justify a rice the right. That. I think if Obama thought there London bureau Lama thank you our friend we appreciated. It's salute the Dutch is our American. Royalty who is now over their debt is meg and general money if any of that being this is a city man. Beijing has yet.
