seven of them gold. that's all from sportsday. coming up in a moment — the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the guardian's chief leader writer randeep ramesh and lucy fisher, chief political correspondent at the times. good to have you both. let's look at the front pages. fortress america is the metro's headline — after president trump signed an executive order to build a wall on the us border with mexico. the i previews theresa may's upcoming visit to the united states, with the paper describing it as "tricky".
the guardian says the prime minister will seek a "special deal" with the new president during what the paper calls a "charm offensive". the ft says donald trump's moves on infrastructure and deregulation have reignited investor confidence in the us economy. the times has an raf typhoon escorting a russian aircraft carrier through the english channel on its way back from deployment in syria. according to the telegraph, southern rail could be temporarily renationalised under government plans to deal with delays and cancellations. and finally, the express says mushrooms could be a vital tool in the battle against dementia. we will not be looking at that front page. we shall go to the metro. fortress america, trump signs the orderfor the mexico wall fortress america, trump signs the order for the mexico wall set to ban migrants from seven nations. holding true to his promise? absolutely,
quite a surprise for many commentators who thought he would be more moderate. within a matter of days, he has signed a number of executive orders and as well as building the small, it is unclear how this will be paid for. he said that torture works, he has lifted the ban on cia blackspot presents... well... i discussion paper suggests that he was going to ask the security services to look into whether it might be worth that. the white house has made clear it is not a white house document. but he said torture works. there is a signal of intent, paving the way. they are putting this up there as a kite? that is what people think. and there
is this outlandish investigation into voterfraud, which is this outlandish investigation into voter fraud, which seems slightly bizarre given that he has one. there are lot of peeves coming from mrtrump one. there are lot of peeves coming from mr trump since the top job. and he won the election, he got the requisite college votes, electoral couege requisite college votes, electoral college votes, why is he worrying about voter fraud ? fortress college votes, why is he worrying about voter fraud? fortress america, building this wall, building this wall, this man has not pivoted to the kind of president that many people thought he might have done now that he is in the oval office? yes, he campaigned in mendacity and will govern in moderation. sticking true to what he is, he has a divider not a unifier, his base wants to
hold on to those pledges about closing immigration, shutting down trade with the rest of the world and fighting radical islam, as he describes it. in many ways these are the kind of darker sides of donald trump's presidency which she is unleashing. it is what people voted for? it is what they wanted? the majority of americans did not vote for him, the electoral college gave him that. it is a system that he won as no one says he is an illegitimate president. actually, many people are! you're not. his paranoia is more troubling, a person who gets upset about a discussion about his inauguration crowds and then instructs his press spokesperson tonight to members of the press on the first day of his presidency is a person who is probably too thin—skinned for high office. he
might growa thin—skinned for high office. he might grow a thicker skin but he would help all of us by hurrying up. he is 70! if you haven't learned by then. lucy, having heard all of that, theresa may on a mission to seek a special deal with the president. given his character, he is in real estate, some people think he still is in real estate! he hasn't given any up. zero some, i win and you lose. how can you have a trade deal with someone being a country who was like that? you lose andi country who was like that? you lose and i win? how is theresa may going to get the kind of deal that will benefit the uk? it is very difficult to see that working. he clearly said america first, this is about americanjobs america first, this is about american jobs and the order is like the pipelines indicator, only
american steel will be used. he is holding true to that cry. economic protectionism. even today at pmqs, theresa may said uk interest and values first. it is interesting how they can dovetail. very vague language, with trade there can be prosperity, growth, morejobs on both sides of the atlantic. it is tricky, one thing we can say is donald trump, because imex making these deals, he wants to keep up his reputation for results, there could be leverage, perhaps before the midterms, wanting to sign something. it is about horse trading, a trade deal, you get something and we get something and we are happy. you have painted a portrait of his character. is that the kind of character that is going to be able to compromise here? and make the kind of deal that is going to benefit everyone? any
transaction is a compromise to some respect because you have done a deal and if you can see advantage in the deal and then promote that advantage asa pr deal and then promote that advantage as a pr win, both sides can win. you sell the deal. that is part of the deal. the trouble with donald trump is everything seems to be a transaction. there doesn't seem... you would hope with someone who seeks to attain the leadership of the free world, they would have some moral baseline upon which they don't fall below. with him, everything seems to be up for grabs. there is a trapdoor! there is nothing beyond the boundaries, from lock them up, send them home... it is a dangerous place to be in a democracy because democracy is one on trust and autocracy is here and donald trump often runs towards here. we have
seen all of that on the campaign trail and seen all of that on the campaign trailand a seen all of that on the campaign trail and a little bit in the last few days, lucy. what about the sexism and racism and, as you pointed out, the possibility that they might reopen these black sites around the world ? they might reopen these black sites around the world? freedom of speech. attacks on the press. all the kind of stuff that the british or at least certainly the government would think area least certainly the government would think are a part of who we are as a nation, freedom of speech and so on. this band is not believe in a lot of that, potentially. how does theresa may deal with all of that? it is tricky, she has been very strident talking on the andrew marr show, i am not afraid to tell donald trump what is unacceptable. she does not really hold the cards, america does. we are leaving the eu, we need a trade deal more than the us. she is at risk of going in and even if there is positive mood music from this charm offensive this week, what
is to say he won't treat next week, theresa may— loser. as he has done with virtually everyone else he has met over the years. he has turned on them online. the omens are not good. the major foreign policy decisions, nato and the encroachment of russia and brexit, he is in favour of brexit, which is incredibly difficult to deliver on anybody's terms and he thinks nato is obsolete and he wants to embrace russia. not good signs for a british prime minister. whatever she talks about... we have cut ourselves off from europe and it is a bit like the secretary of state saying we have lost an empire and were searching for our role in the world. when theresa may goes back to number 10 and somebody shouts 8— did you talk about his sexism comments? she will have to say something? isn't she?
like she took him to task and that? it seems like number 10 has been styling the lines on this. the fact iama styling the lines on this. the fact i am a female prime minister. i will be sitting there in the room with him, but will show him that women can lead. i am not sure she is going to tackle him head—on in the first meeting. quite unlikely. the other story is southern rail. the franchise at risk of being renationalised? this will come as any surprise to anyone because it is the worst performing operator on the old british gas service. only 46% of trains running on time in the past month and this is fallout from this strike. about how many guards and people should be working on a train, a driverless train. the problem at this is the government loses both
ways, if they renationalised this the unions claim victory, if they let it run, they get a beating in the heartland, where people are not getting a decent service. i have to say, chris grayling, the minister, has a history of not being a very effective minister, iwill say has a history of not being a very effective minister, i will say that. that has been one of his downfall in government. this might prove another. it is hobson 's choice. it doesn't put him into a winning position, whichever he takes. grammar schools on the front page of the telegraph. but grammar stream in every school to help bright pupils, according to the head of ucas?” every school to help bright pupils, according to the head of ucas? i am not sure how but grammar stream would be different to the streaming that already happens in most schools andi that already happens in most schools and i suppose the point that the outgoing chief executive is trying
to make but without saying so is that we don't want a social economic ghetto with rich areas with grammar schools and middle—class people moving in because the catchment area has become so expensive and poor areas with worse girls, perhaps it was not the same level of achievement. i can only assume this is what this means otherwise it is just supercharged streaming. what is new in that? it is a cultural thing. there is called, they would follow traditional academic curriculum is and where behavioural norms could be taken for granted. there is a sanctuary within the rough and tumble of comprehensive schools that she seems to be advocating as though there is this place for latin and violent players! it is a cultural thing. interesting. the telegraph is
the only paper that seems to have that story. interesting to see how that story. interesting to see how that develops. who is that bruiser on the front of the daily telegraph? some sort of drunken sailor? he has had quite a bit to drink? no, mary berry! looking very combative after having won a national award! good on her! named the best televisionjudge at the national television awards. that is so great, she is so elegant on television, on the great british bake off. and here it comes out! raging against the machine! good on her! i think she has either find out that the great british bake off is going to channel 4 or she has decided, you know what, i will not get involved myself! staying with the bbc! i think that is what it is!
it could be her next pay check! she has got a pay rise. probably the only one! good to see both of you. many thanks for that. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you — seven days a week — at bbc.co.uk/papers. and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. that's it from us. it already feels bitterly cold out and about with temperatures falling away and even where we had sunshine today, this was the picture in cornwall earlier, you can see the sunshine on the satellite. through wales and the midlands and northern england. scotland and northern
ireland, even though this has brought rain to western areas, quite bright. these are the skies and the fog we have seen, more wide spread through the evening and that will develop widely as it spreads north and west overnight. it should lift from a surface so it will be a feature of hill fog rather than low level but even when that cloud it will get colder with temperatures barely above freezing anyway. the north and west largely escaping but not in the countryside. i bitterly cold night because you have to add that wind chill, “i! and —5 and with that wind chill, “i! and —5 and with that wind—chill it will be quite bracing. the other thing with this cloud is it is quite thick and producing drizzle and snow grains so the likelihood is it will be freezing, quite icy and treacherous on the pavements and roads. so a cold start! and there will be for the round but particularly on the higher rates, east wales and the highest parts of the midlands and
the northern parts of england and the northern parts of england and the peak district and appellants. much drier and brighter toward scotland, the north and west in particular. some bricks developing for north west wales and south coast later. perhaps northern ireland but it is closed on this weather front and the wind will be a feature of the weather. these are the temperatures on the thermometer but with the cloud, adding on that wind, it will be quite roll and about. the wind is still a feature. there is a su btle wind is still a feature. there is a subtle direction change, coming from the bay of biscay, marginally less cold, still cold enough for a smattering of snow in eastern areas first thing on friday morning but in heavy showers taking over, for some time and they could materialise across southern and western areas and on strengthening wind, potentially gale force, later in the day. we could get double figures in plymouth. milder air close by and through saturday the showers push across the country, that is a first we have seen for some time. quite a bit of cloud on saturday, sunday is
looking largely dry and bright, clear but with some sunshine for most of us. this is bbc news. i'm clive myrie. the headlines at 11pm: president trump has signed an order to build a wall on the us border with mexico, one of his main of his main campaign promises. construction could begin in months. nation without borders is not a nation. beginning today, the united states of america gets back control of its borders, gets back its borders. mps will get a chance to scrutinise the government's brexit strategy after theresa may said she'll produce a white paper. the royal bank of scotland is to set aside another $4 billion to pay fines for miss—selling. british scientists have identified 11! new disorders affecting children after analysing the genes of thousands of children with rare, undiagnosed conditions. and on newsnight we find
