is not yet known. now it is time for our news review. here's the next president of the us, in an interview with the times. in it donald trump said he'd offer britain a quick trade deal, he'd agree to a nuclear weapons reduction deal with russia and he'd start off by trusting vladimir putin and germany's angela merkel, but he said that may not last long. the world economic forum in davos is being held this week. the china daily looks at president xi jinping's attendance, reporting that he hopes to inject positivity into the recovery of the global economy. facebook is trying to crack down on fake news in germany, with fears false reports may sway voters ahead of elections there this year. the ft reports questionable articles will be analysed by a third party factchecker.
with india's hopes to be a more cashless economy — to halt black market money — the business standard looks at whether cheaper smartphones can be made for the mass market. a meticulously prepared meal service is becoming more sought after in china. part inspired by british tv show downton abbey, china's seen a sharp rise in people training to be butlers. that's in the international new york times. and after nearly 150 years, the big top of the ringling brothers and barnum & bailey circus will finally come down. the show‘s closing because fewer people are going to see it. when i was a child that was the only circus in town, i must say. times are changing, however. david buik is a market strategist with panmure gordon. i lived on the other side of the world in the philippines, and we only had the ring when brothers. we
will come to brexit in a moment that first of all let me tell you about this twitter account where it says trump has been more critical of his close allies than he has been of russia. before we got onto the article, and he is described as a political loose cannon. you never know what profound statement is going to make. and, you know, i don't know whether he isjust going to carry on the way he has, that he is not establishment and he is going to make his policies as much as he can. your excellent contributor said from the london school of economics, getting stuff through congress will be difficult and when it is simple it makes sense, such as cutting taxation down to 15% over two years
oi'i taxation down to 15% over two years ona taxation down to 15% over two years on a corporate bases and infrastructure spending, that has pleasantries. you can see it being a contribution to the economy. he has almost as many enemies in congress from the republicans as he has friends. the idea that some of these left field policies that he has, he needs to get them through congress andl needs to get them through congress and i don't think he will. this is the problem. what a clue for michael gove. incredible. to get this very interesting article. and if we can see even something out of it in a positive frame, the fact that a quick smart trade deal rather than any sort of free trade deal, that would give brexit a little impetus. also his ideas of talking about vladimir putin, saying that we should trust him. nobody else has
been able to do so for 20 years so it will be interesting to see whether he can get an idea of a conversation going if they do meet over the next couple of months. that would be great. the fact also that he is wagging his finger again at angela merkel, regarding bmw making cars in mexico. that is very, very antagonistic, that attitude. it looks positive for britain but as has been said, nothing gets done quickly in congress. the idea that we are gung ho and over the top and we are gung ho and over the top and we will have a great trade deal in a couple of months, dream on. that will not happen. it could happen more quickly, however. that is david. you ask one question and you get six points. that is a good thing. we can now move on because you have covered everything comprehensively. the china daily has
on its front page that their president is in davos for the world economic forum in switzerland. it is his first attendance of this forum. of course it will be front page news for them. what is your take on davos? do you really want to here? i must say that this piece of news of the chinese president coming for a state visit to switzerland, which is what he is doing, he appears tomorrow at the world economic forum which is a positive because i cannot think of a single piece of legislation that has emanated since 1971 at the world economic forum. i consider it a disgrace, a waste of money. £22,000 for each delegate, thatis money. £22,000 for each delegate, that is a waste of taxpayer money and a waste of government money. many years ago, you say began in the
70s. there were world leaders there regularly decades ago. it has not been like that for some time. does this give it a boost? it does. my problem is that if you could actually save that people have done anything apart from backslapping and sharing a glass of champagne, if something constructive had come out of it that had benefited the economy of it that had benefited the economy of the world, i would be all for it. when you have something that size... there is a discussion and networking that may lead to deal may lead to more which employment and growth... life is half out there and to put it under people's noses saying that there are 7000 delegates paying £22,000 or whatever it is... i am not happy about it and i'm a capitalist. how about fake news? do you find it difficult to distinguish between fake and real news?” you find it difficult to distinguish between fake and real news? i think the problem is that, after the years
have gone by, my generation loves doing this, we love reading the paper over breakfast with a cup of coffee and we trust our source. as the newspapers diminish in importance and the blog... there are hundreds of them, they cast a mist over everything because they wonder where they got that from and this is quoted here and there. i was happy that mark at the berg said that he recognises that there is a problem about false news. let us hope that he does do something about filtering it. personally, iunderstand he does do something about filtering it. personally, i understand not only the perspective of angela merkel but also from the french presidential election in april where false information may not be good i'iews. false information may not be good news. i was going to ask about france. cheap smart phones in india, looking to try to create. that way more people can have them in india
and you are eliminating the use of cash. exactly. you will remember that the indian government took all the large nodes out of circulation to try and stop the cash economy. this is a wonderful idea that if it could work... it won't happen but if you could get a smart phone built for £30 or $30, plus the technology... i'm afraid that is pa rt of technology... i'm afraid that is part of life. they should have that goal and hopefully they will get there ina goal and hopefully they will get there in a couple of years time. goal and hopefully they will get there in a couple of years timem will not be a cashless society. they just talking about a cheaper mobile phone for i remember reading about denmark a couple of years ago saying it wanted to become the first country that completely does away with cash. interestingly, waiters and waitresses were not happy because they expected fewer chips. there would be complications. let us
forget about wearing white gloves and doing silver service for your extremely wealthy boss and talk about... the circus. when you're a child compared to now it has changed. i remember when bertram mills circus closedown. i can't remembera mills circus closedown. i can't remember a christmas where i didn't go. remember a christmas where i didn't 90 my remember a christmas where i didn't go. my kids, i took them to another circus. that circus is still around, kind of. ijust think it was part... like a pantomime. i loved it. that is my generation. ban in dalian... they are finished. thank you, david. hello there, good morning. we've got a weather front draped across the united kingdom to start the day today.
from the north—east of scotland all the way down to the south—west of england. either side of that we've got largely dry conditions and quite a range in those temperatures. it's relatively mild across the western side of the uk but towards the far south and east, we could see a touch of frost towards norwich, hovering around about one or so degrees above freezing. so quite chilly here. but further west, it's very mild indeed. nine or 10 degrees, pretty good to start the day in the middle ofjanuary. now, through the morning, mist and fog can be a bit of a problem in some parts of east anglia and the south—east but nothing too untoward. and it is quite chilly here. had further west and we thicken up the cloud and we're into some rain for the midlands, central, southern parts of england. and further west still and it should be largely dry in cornwall if fairly cloudy, but mild. a similar story across the western side of wales. a lot of cloud, some of that's quite low and it is dry and mild as well. into northern ireland and again, a lot of dry weather to be had through the morning. it is rather cloudy, nine or 10 degrees, but not so bad to start the day and the western side of scotland also seeing
a lot of cloud. not much rain to speak of, though. there is some to be had, though, across the eastern side just towards the far north—east. as we head back down into northern england, a lot of cloud here, low cloud, fog on the hills and some rain to be had. butjust to the east of that rain in the hull area it could well be on the chilly side, three or four degrees to start the day. a band of rain doesn't really move too far too quickly. it tends to become lighter and more patchy as we get on into the afternoon. as another area of rain creeping its way into the western side of scotland. there will be a range of temperatures through the afternoon. still quite chilly for east anglia and the south—east, only five or six degrees here. but many western areas seeing those temperatures getting up into double figures, 10 degrees all the way from stornaway down towards plymouth. then through the evening, some rain moving its way across western scotland in particular. notice how the rain across the midlands tends to fizzle out. chilly overnight into tuesday morning and the far south—east, but that's where we'll see the best of the sunshine on tuesday. elsewhere, fairly cloudy,
patchy rain for northern england and some parts of the midlands as well. again that range in temperatures from quite chilly, four, five, six degrees in the south—east to a relatively mild ten or 11 in the north and west. as we go through tuesday evening, still a bit of patchy rain for some central parts of the uk, but it won't amount to too much. a bit of rain too across the north—west of the uk as we get on into wednesday. but a lot of dry, fairly cloudy weather. lowest temperatures on wednesday again will be across the south—eastern corner. it's eights and nines elsewhere. it looks pretty quiet really into thursday. a lot of cloud to be had again but not that much rain, hello this is breakfast, with louise minchin and dan walker. donald trump praises brexit and promises a quick trade deal with the uk, when he becomes president. speaking to the conservative mp and leave campaigner, michael gove, he said he thought the uk was doing great and had been "so smart in getting out." the heat took was unbelievable.
people do not want other people coming in and destroying their country. and with just days to go until donald trump's inauguration, jon has the first in series of special reports from the us. good morning from a freezing cold milwaukee. we are taking the temperature of public opinion in the week donald trump becomes president.
