since last friday we've heard further complaints about the prominence in news headlines of the activities and pronouncements of the new president. the white house is accused of telling falsehoods in a battle with the media about president trump's inauguration. the president opens his first full week in office by signing an order withdrawing the us from a major free—trade deal with pacific rim countries. he meets business leaders at the white house and once he will penalise american companies that movejobs penalise american companies that move jobs overseas. more executive orders signed by president trump, this time he revives plans to build two oil pipelines despite environmental concerns. you promised a wall, now he says he's going to start building it in months. donald trump sets out his plans on immigration control. stepping down for the first time from air force one, president trump looks ahead to his meeting with mrs may. i meeting with her tomorrow, i don't have my commerce secretary and they wa nt have my commerce secretary and they want to talk trade so i'll have to
handle it myself! speaking last night, the president again said he was determined to build a wall between mexico and the us and suggested taxing their goods to pay for it. word so has bbc news been getting a bit carried away by the new presidency rosie victoria wells thought so, writing: brian gardner had this question: meanwhile, teresa reilly wrote to us on monday after she had settled down to watch a report on the supreme court decision about brexit: do let us know your thoughts on the
bbc‘s coverage of donald trump's presidency or any aspect of bbc news. details of how to contact us coming up at the end of the programme. now for some of your other concerns this week, starting with the bbc coverage following a report in the sunday times that an unarmed missile went offcourse during a test lastjune. on his show that morning, andrew marr asked the prime minister about this several times. when you made that first speech injuly times. when you made that first speech in july in times. when you made that first speech injuly in the house of commons about our trident nuclear defence, did you know that misfire had occurred?
i had absolute faith in our trident missiles, when i made that speech, what we were talking about is whether or not we should renew our trident, whether or not we should have trident missiles in the future. did you know it had happened?” think we should defend our country, i think we should play our role in nato with an independent nuclear deterrent. jeremy corbyn things differently, jeremy corbyn things we shouldn't defend our country. this isa shouldn't defend our country. this is a very serious incident, did you know about it when you told the house of commons? the issue we were talking about in the house of commons was a very serious issue. the story was picked up prominently on bbc news bulletins over the next couple of days but some viewers thought the concentration on it was ill—advised. ken sturt put it like this: morris sharrock echoed that: now, we've been getting regular
complaints on newswatch about the way bbc news on—line words some of its headlines in two weeks and on the website. another example came this week. —— in tweets. one of the campaigners who brought the case was gina miller, who has been subjected toa number of gina miller, who has been subjected to a number of violent threats online. that prompted bbc news to post a tweet asking: it linked to a woman's hour discussion about her treatment, that led to a number of angry responses on twitter. martin phelps answered the question posed like this: dave mcnally thought:
biggest drug dealer in the country, we don't know, see what happens. tonight it's liverpool but this story could be told in many cities. it's one of knives, fear and wasted lives. it starts by selling a bit of weed. winded you start carrying knives? 12. and this woman was flabbergasted by the report: finally it's been noticed this week that bbc political correspondent carol walker is an early riser. on wednesday she was on air in the cold just after 6am. our political correspondent carol
walker is outside the houses of parliament for us. good morning to you once again, carol, it's been a busy few days but we heard in tom's piece about the tory rebellion, how large a rebellion is that likely to be? it looks like the number of tories rebelling against the government will actually be quite small. she was braving the elements in the same spot at the same hour on friday. good morning, carol, the prime minister here has to walk a tightrope between trying to get on with donald trump, with the president, but also not annoying eve ryo ne president, but also not annoying everyone back here with what she says to him. she's under a lot of pressure, isn't she? yes, absolutely. this is going to be a very important, significant but also potentially very tricky meeting. carol was also out and about first thing on tuesday, although in a different location. let's speak to our political correspondent carol walker who is outside the supreme court this morning. i know they don't decide until 9:30am but what are the thoughts, carol? the expectation widely is that the
judgement will go against the government, that theresa may will be told she must seek the approval of parliament before she can trigger article 50. as we've mentioned, thejudgement did indeed go against her but steve kettering had a question: thank you for all your comments this week. if you want to share your opinions on bbc news and current affairs or even appear on the programme, you can call us on: ore—mail: you can find us on twitter: and do have a look at our website, the address for that is: that's all from us. we'll be back to
hear your thoughts about bbc news coverage again next week. goodbye. hello there. well, while some of us were shivering on thursday, for others, for example across the north of scotland, it was remarkably mild. a day of contrasts. we're kind of getting back to normal. most of us will turn less cold. a bit of a breeze, some sunshine, but there will be some rain around as well. we are losing the continental feed, which brought most of us a very cold day on thursday. starting to drag the cold air in from the atlantic, hence the rising temperatures for the majority. but we start the day with a hard frost, one or two freezing fog patches, and the odd shower as well, which could cause some icy stretches. should be a dry start across wales. that fog up over the high ground, but that will be lifted, and the temperatures will be on the rise. above freezing for northern ireland, rain knocking on the door of the west of the province.
a frosty start for most of scotland, and here i think it is set to be a largely dry day, with some sunshine. heading our way down across the borders into northern england, cold with a hard frost. some freezing fog patches, for sure, in the morning, so watch out for those. i mentioned the odd showerjust building in the eastern counties, for a time, in the morning. so the risk of one or two icy stretches, but temperatures slowly rising above freezing down across southern england and into the south—west. we should be above zero. a dry start, but some showery rain lies in wait out west, and this band of showery rain will start to push its way slowly eastwards across northern ireland and into the far south—west of england, perhaps the far south—west of wales. another little area of showers pushes up across southern england through the afternoon as well. further the north and east it stays dry, but that chilly air holding on for one more day. just two degrees in newcastle, milder, though, across many southern and western areas. as we head through the evening and overnight, so it gets a bit messy. there will be areas of rain pushing their way northwards and eastwards, some quite heavy,
actually, some quite wet, actually. a period of snow across high ground in particular. the temperatures could dip, late, close to freezing. but for most of us, actually, it will be a frost—free start to the weekend. saturday, then, starts with cloud, with some patchy rain continuing to move northwards and eastwards. behind that it turns brighter, but also with some showers, and one or two of those showers could be wintry up over high ground. it might not be as cold as it has been for most of us, double figures in a few southern areas. that milder theme continues into sunday. we could see an area of rain pushing into southern areas, however, how far north that gets is open to question. the best of the brightness on sunday will be further north across the uk. milder than recently. a very warm welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to our viewers in north america and around the globe. my name is tom donkin. our top stories:
