9:00 pm
hello, i'm phillip thomas and this is outside source. after a series of public rows with iran australia and mexico, president trump has these words of reassurance. when you hear about the tough phone calls i'm having, don't worry about it, we are being taken advantage by every nation in the world virtue, it is not going to happen any more. but on his first day in the job, his top diplomat was more diplomatic. each of us is entitled to the expression of us is entitled to the expression of our political beliefs but we cannot let our personal convictions overwhelm our ability to work as one team. we will be live to the state department. france working on, the man who was favoured to be the next president of france, is facing new evidence of evidence that he and his wife to fraud did taxpayers. these are live pictures from romania, the country is facing its largest protest since the fall of common isn't over a government move to
9:01 pm
decriminalise some corruption offences. we will bring you a report. to forget you can get in touch with us through a hashtag —— don't forget. the pace of donald trump's presidency is dizzying so we are going to start by showing period assurance that he offered at washington's national prayer brea kfast, washington's national prayer breakfast, speaking about his view of the world and his place in it. the world is in trouble, and we are going to straighten it out, 0k? the world is in trouble, and we are going to straighten it out, ok? that is what i do, we are going to fix things, straighten it out. believe me when you hear about the tough phone calls i'm having, don't worry about it, just worry about it, they're tough, they have to be
9:02 pm
tough, it is time that we be tough, we are taken advantage of by every nation in the world virtually. it is not go to happen any more. donald trump taking a dim view of the world associate has been shaking things up, expressing his anger with iran for conducting a missile test. i go to show you his tweets on that today. there we go: he followed up that read by saying nothing was off the table in terms ofa nothing was off the table in terms of a response. a lot of the legwork here is going to be falling to rex tillerson, in his first full day as head of the state department. tillerson, in his first full day as head of the state departmentlj tillerson, in his first full day as head of the state department. i know this was a hotly contested election and we do not fulfil the way about the outcome, each of us is entitled to the expression of our political beliefs but we cannot let our
9:03 pm
personal convictions overwhelm our ability to work as one team. change for the sake of change can be accountable about it, that will never be my approach. but we cannot sustain effective traditions over optimal outcomes. i will gather information on what processes should be reformed and do my part to make sure that we are functioning in the most productive and efficient way possible. that ask own out to the state department. barbara is there for us. when we are talking about iran, a lot of people at the state department spent a lot of time putting together the deal between the us and iran which the new president despises? he does despise it but these noises that he's making about iran not related to the nuclear deal, they are related to the other stuff, the test of a nuclear ballistic missile and some other behaviour in the region that the americans believe is disruptive and needs to be stopped. so you have this statement, yesterday and the
9:04 pm
president continued today that iran was put on notice. his spokesperson said that that means that we will respond to this in some way and they hammered that she said what they are going to do but the word is that they will probably have these sanctions imposed not because of the nuclear deal and none of it has for violating the deal but other things like terrorism related behaviour. testing ballistic missiles, and that is the approach that this administration probably will take, pushing iran as much as possible without ripping up the deal although it has to be said that the iranians would probably see new sanctions as a violation of at least the spirit of that deal and it will put a great strain on that agreement. stay with us. strain on that agreement. stay with us. i had been talking also to somebody from bbc persia to get uranium perspective on this dispute. what happened since last night when they put iran on notice as it were,
9:05 pm
they put iran on notice as it were, they raised the rhetoric. that is dangerous, particularly, in the persian gulf, where the iranians boats, the boats of the reigning revolutionary guard and the us navy are constantly in close proximity. and there is tension there. and this kind of rhetoric of course, raises the temperature and arguably, it moves the us towards a war with iran. do you remember mr trump also spoke, to the national prayer brea kfast spoke, to the national prayer breakfast about making tough phone calls apparently, he had a humdinger with the prime minister of key ally australia. it has been revealed that the first presidential phone calls with malcolm turnbull ended abruptly after a heated exchange over a referee deal, the us had agreed under obama to resettle more than a thousand mainly muslim refugees turned away from australia. this is what mr trump thought of that.|j
9:06 pm
what mr trump thought of that.” have a lot of respect for australia, we had a problem where for whatever reason president obama said that they were going to take probably well over a thousands illegal immigrants, who were in prisons and they were again to bring them and ta ke they were again to bring them and take them into this country and i just said why? if i can ask a question of you, why? 1250, could be 2000, could be more than that. why, why are we doing this, what is the purpose? we will see what happens. previous administration does something and you have to respect that but you can also say, why are we doing this? that is why we are in the jams that we are in. we will give you the other point of view, he was the austrian prime minister malcolm turnbull‘s take, rather testy phone calls. well i have seen that report, and i'm not going to comment on the conversation other
9:07 pm
than to say that in the course of the conversation as you know and was confirmed by the president's official spokesman in the white house, the president assure me that he would continue with, honour the agreement that we entered into with the obama administration with respect to refugee resettlement.” guess, mrtrump is respect to refugee resettlement.” guess, mr trump is doing what he thinks those supporters want comity is being tough again on immigrants, refugees. that is right, his spokesman said that the immigrants or the refugees that they did accept would go through this extreme betting that he has been talking about, he has instituted on america's own refugee and immigrant admissions, but mr spicer did underline how extremely, extremely upset mrtrump was underline how extremely, extremely upset mr trump was with this deal. 0ther upset mr trump was with this deal. other people who are extremely upset, are key members of congress who see this as a real threat, a
9:08 pm
concerning threat to the alliance with australia, which is very important. there is a closed military alliance, the way that the united states get its military presence nearer to the south china sea. it is a close intelligence alliance, the united states as part of the five eyes, that share intelligence, the us, the uk, new zealand and canada. it is another example of mrtrump zealand and canada. it is another example of mr trump having these conversations where he seems to have almost the same style as in the campaign trail or in his tweets, you doesn't really seem to draw a clear line between his personal reactions and policy and it does cause quite a lot of disruption in washington. stay with us, talking with drawing a clear line, i want to bring up a quote from the new homeland security secretary, talking about that wall across the mexican border saying that it will be built within two yea rs. that it will be built within two years. an ambitious timeline. that
9:09 pm
is pretty ambitious, and barbara in washington. there we go. that is a pretty tall order? well yes it was a lwa ys pretty tall order? well yes it was always going to be a tall order, and mrtrump always going to be a tall order, and mr trump wanted to get out his notice of intent very quickly because it was one of his big campaign promises, but you know, already congress said that it will cost between 12 and $15 billion, it isa cost between 12 and $15 billion, it is a 2000 mile border so it is a long place to put a wall. there is 700 miles already has some sort of offence so they will probably add to that but there will be problems. a lot of that land will be privately owned, because there is litigation and treaties about some of the land used in that area. so it is something, that general kelly has been circumspect about in the past but during his confirmation hearing he said he didn't think it would be
9:10 pm
built any time soon so he thinks he's bring a bit of a reality check to it. but trump's style is to push forward , to it. but trump's style is to push forward, to push forward with rhetoric, and with slogans, that this will happen and it will happen soon. reality is properly going to be different. we again to move to the french presidential race now and things are getting more and more tricky for this man, francois fillon, through the candidate for the centre—right party and he is in trouble not because of his policies but because of his family. a securicor newspaper, has claimed that francois fillon pages wide for hundreds of thousands of euros over the years for his french parliamentary system. the problem is that there is no evidence, that is why did any work and there is now reports that he did payments for his children too. he was the presidentialfrontrunner children too. he was the presidential frontrunner but now it is his rivals who seem to be having
9:11 pm
the last laugh, marine le pen in particular, who leads the right front national party, she says that she believes that francois fillon has lost the trust of the french people. speaking at a rallyjust a little while ago, all of this is a conspiracy to break the left wing. it is not justice conspiracy to break the left wing. it is notjustice that some looking for, their aim is it is notjustice that some looking for, theiraim is to it is notjustice that some looking for, their aim is to break me, it is notjustice that some looking for, theiraim is to break me, and beyond my person to break the left and steve its vote. what is at stake is the presidential elections is to choose before it is too late between decline and revival, this is what i believe in. this is in my opinion, the feeling of millions of french people who are far more clear—sighted and more courageous than you think. to stay with us, just a few minutes we will show you how the bbc‘s 29 language services are rising to the challenge of
9:12 pm
translating president trump. a deal to end a dispute on southern rail has been reached, the drivers union aslef, may now call of future industrial action, but no deal has been reached with the rmt union which represents conductors. the tuc boss frances 0'grady says this is a major step forward but still subject toa major step forward but still subject to a vote. following two weeks of intensive talks at congress house, we are pleased to announce that has and gto southern have reached an agreement. for the avoidance of any doubt, this means that subject, to the referendum of aslef, the dispute between ten three mac and southern is over. but half of myself and andy meadows, i would like to thank the
9:13 pm
negotiating teams for both parties to this dispute. they have worked long and hard to achieve this breakthrough. you are watching outside source, live from the bbc newsroom, how lead story, president trump has said that nothing is off the table with regard to iran, in response to a question about whether he would consider military action over terror on's testing of a ballistic missile. some more of your stories around the bbc now, the president of russia vladimir putin has blamed ukraine for the latest escalation of hostilities with pro—russian separatists in the east of the country. speaking on a visit to hungary, the flare—up was started by ukrainians, volunteering italians, seizing an opposition stronghold and moving inside rebel territory. you can get more on that story. the white house says that a us special
9:14 pm
forces operation in yemen was a very thought out process by the mistress in. the us military was investigating the operation last weekend after innocent civilians including children were apparently films. the white house said it was ha rd to call films. the white house said it was hard to call the operation a success when there was loss of life but this was a success. and one of the most read stories on the bbc news website right now, is why 6000 pangolins died. thai customs officials have received their biggest ever for of type pangolins scales. last night we brought you the historic vote in westminster when a big majority of mps westminster when a big majority of m ps voted westminster when a big majority of mps voted to give the prime minister the power to fire the starting gun on britain's exit from the eu. today we have got more detail from the government, let us show you some of its priorities which involve control of immigration, protecting the rights of british people living in the eu and those of eu citizens
9:15 pm
living here. meanwhile the other business of the opinion goes on, the leaders of the 27 current partners are meeting in smallest member state mortar to talk about migrants and donald trump. the ceremonial cannon solver letter, installed by british imperialists and restored by eu money. the story of modern mortar in a one gun salute. the carriers will welcome eu leaders to their first the carriers will welcome eu leaders to theirfirst mortar the carriers will welcome eu leaders to their first mortar summit. they won't have too look far around a coast for a reminder of their problems. african migrants who mostly problems. african migrants who m ostly rea ch problems. african migrants who mostly reach europe by boat through libya are stranded here. they want
9:16 pm
jobs, and documents, and a sense of hope. they are not optimistic they are going to get them from the eu gathering. it doesn't give us are right, they look at us like animals, it is too much. what are european doing, it is very hard. migration is a majorfaults line doing, it is very hard. migration is a major faults line within the eu, the mediterranean countries want their partners are from the shores, to resettle a share of the migrants. many are reluctant. experts warn that alternative solutions like paying african countries to take migrants back will try to stop people from leaving libya will be difficult and dangerous.” people from leaving libya will be difficult and dangerous. i think the focus right now is to try and slow down or shut down the flow of people coming from libya, i don't think thatis coming from libya, i don't think that is an achievable goal, i think if europe manages to shut down or blockade libya there will be a displacement effect to neighbouring
9:17 pm
countries and we will see boats departing from other areas. i like the people of malta are not worried about migration but he had close ties to the uk and in places looks more british than britain itself. so might it be useful to know that uk has such a close ally among the 27 eu remaining states when the time comes, to cut a deal on brexit. there are ties that are not just historical and cultural but on the emotional level. written i think, can rest assured that malta has been a friend and he remain —— will remain different now and in the future. so on the shores of the mediterranean sea, the eu leaders will talk as they have talked before about migration. but they will also have their minds on the choppy political waters ahead, created not just by brexit but by the turbulent new presidency in washington, of
9:18 pm
donald trump. time for the business news and donald trump makes it again and he has been talking about one of his topics, the nafta free—trade deals that covers the us, canada and mexico and calls it a catastrophe for the united states and he says he's looking at redoing that.” for the united states and he says he's looking at redoing that. i have very serious concerns about nafta. nafta has been a catastrophe for our country and workers and jobs and companies, who are leaving our country. i want to change it, maybe we do it, maybe we do a new nafta and we put an extra effort, do you know what it is for? free and fair trade. notjust free—trade, free and fair trade. because it is very unfair. all of the statutory guidelines that we are adhering to,
9:19 pm
i would like to speed it up if possible. you are the folks that can do it senator, so important and we will make great trade deals that will make great trade deals that will have something that, i don't ca re if will have something that, i don't care if it is a renovation of nafta ora care if it is a renovation of nafta or a brand—new nafta, but we do have to make it fair and or a brand—new nafta, but we do have to make it fairand it or a brand—new nafta, but we do have to make it fair and it is very unfairto to make it fair and it is very unfair to the american worker and very, very unfair to companies who do business in this country, that is why they are leaving. samir and hussein in new york for us, first he said that he doesn't like the pacific trade deal and now it is nafta and that is a worry for mexico and canada? absolutely, but unlike the tpp, the trial specific partnership, yazd at a way from a deal altogether but you will hear that the language he has dealt with is more, it beats to be renegotiated, and there are people, this has been in place for more than two decades and a lot of people have
9:20 pm
changed and it is possible to rework the free work of this free—trade agreement. of course the difficulty is that this requires some diplomacy, and unfortunately it seems that mexico american relations are not going as well these days. yes you can say that again and we have heard more in the next 2a hours about the building of this wall. the aim is to get it done in two years, that has got to be good news for the construction industry? welt it is a bit challenging because when it comes to these kind of projects. about the wall, or even the pipeline, that we have been talking about, the dakota access pipeline, if you speak to people within the industry, they say the short—term kind ofjobs, they are looking for long—term jobs. projects looking for long—term jobs. projects looking at rebuilding the american the structure so it is not one specific bridge, but it is a lot of
9:21 pm
bridges around the country, that really leads to more sustaining jobs in the construction industry rather than the smaller one—off ones. in the construction industry rather than the smaller one-off ones. and i guess to get those kind of projects through, you need money and congress on board? valleys in fact true, and it may be a bit of a challenge, but this is one of those where we will have to wait and see, has been a lot of talk from the white house, it has taken a great deal of effort to keep up taken a great deal of effort to keep up to date with everything that has been coming out of the white house but of course the challenge is to try and get something through congress. you may know that the bbc currently broadcasting 29 languages which means that we send donald trump's message far and wide and it is not always easy to reflect accurately what the president is saying. 0ne accurately what the president is saying. one man that can tell us what it is like, is this man from bbc persian. he has explained to us
9:22 pm
the challenge of becoming the donald. i don't care if they are free, fair, good, horrendous. ijust wa nt free, fair, good, horrendous. ijust want great deals. brew you thought trump was hard enough to understanding this, imagine putting his words in another language.” found the best way to translate president donald trump is to become trump, and speak his words the way he says them. i am a journalist with the bbc persian tv service and part of myjob is doing live translations of myjob is doing live translations of world leaders like the new us president. from english to far sea. i know nothing about russia. transcript in the unseen word is what i found difficult, a speech and body damage expert to explain how donald trump from veres from subject to subject. he's always aiming for the final punchy phrase, he will start the sentence to reply to
9:23 pm
respond to something and if he thinks i'm not going to get there, he would abandon it and shift off somewhere else and then think, is this one going to work, no i'm just going to abandon this until he finds his final driving message and then he will get wall of the way home and a lwa ys he will get wall of the way home and always end on a strong emotive word which he does on his tweets. saddled huge. —— sad all huge. which he does on his tweets. saddled huge. -- sad all huge. his words can easily get lost in translation, being a journalist and a live translator, i'd stand how this can have significant consequences on how people in iran perceive the president. you almost need somebody who is an actor because unless you body them and physically embodied the gestures as you say the words, the gestures as you say the words, the meaning is going to get lost in translation. so for those impersonating trump, there are if you gestures to look out. it when he thinks he has got it, he would to a
9:24 pm
threading the needle gesture and bashing the air. when he being precise about hitting hard. when he is dismissive, this is where the translating thing, you might think you need to change tone, he will go into a palms up gesture like a throwaway comment. of course i'm going to give you all of my financial statements. it seems like interpreting donald trump is more than a straightforward word by word translation. they're just going to finish this addition by showing you again some live pictures from romania, the capital bucharest and still you can see the protesters, this is the largest gathering of people since the fall of comedies and in remain you. that square was absolutely packed about two hours ago. and what they are protesting about is a government move, so that people who
9:25 pm
are convicted of corruption don't necessarily go to prison. they would only go to prison if they had pocketed more than 114,000 euros, $50,000. people are outraged by this, they have been out on the streets, and even the president has got involved and the constitutional court is going to have a say. this is really a very big issue that will continue to follow in remain you. just time to show you what is coming up, we just time to show you what is coming up, we are just time to show you what is coming up, we are going to look at the british antarctic survey, it has been moving house. you can see one of the pods moving along on skis, it was getting dangerously close to a crevasse. i think there are six of these pods being very slowly moved across the antarctic. do stay with us, i will be back injust a few moments. hide, you have probably heard that we are in fulsome windy weather late
9:26 pm
on friday, but it will bring even stronger winds into north—west france and not just stronger winds into north—west france and notjust one storm system thatis france and notjust one storm system that is heading in, it is two and of these two storms it is probably saturdays that will be the most ferocious. here is the pressure charts, you can see how tightly packed the isobars are. of these systems, saturday is probably the more powerful and friday is bad enough, it will bring a swathe of really strong winds across the north—west of france, we are expecting the winds to gust to 80 miles an hour, inland may be 60 or 70 miles an hour, it could be enough to bring some transport disruption and call some power cuts. 0n saturday, we could get something get a sting jet, fast wins high up in the atmosphere getting forced down onto the surface, if that happens we could get gusts to about 100 miles an hour. that could bring down trees and disrupt power. away from the
9:27 pm
windy west of europe that we are keeping a close eye on, cross the ukraine we have got low—pressure and also a bit of freezing rain. there could be icy conditions on friday. looking at the picture across the middle east, some cold air, widespread frost to start the day across the likes of iraq, syria, jordan and northern areas of surgery via hand during the day temperatures struggling, with highs of 12 in riyadh and baghdad. wade colder than what it should be at this time of the year. in the cheeky stun and kurdistan, 20 metres expected in these areas the risks of disruption, but the snow is going to be even heavier across the mountains of afghanistan where over the next few days we could see half a metre of snow falling. there are likely to be avalanches, caused by the heavy snow, there's avalanches could well
9:28 pm
affect the mountain passes and transport could be affected. back to the uk, windy weather, as we go through the night, continuing to blow briskly, in number showers across northern and western areas but given the strength of the wind, it is not gain to be a particularly cold night on friday starting off on a decent note, 0k there will be showers, but some sunny spells elsewhere. however, the weather goes downhill as the area of low pressure approaches the channel and this will bring a band of rain along with strong winds. these are the kind of wind gusts that you can expect through friday afternoon, he could well get one or two issues, but helen willits will have more on the windy spell of weather coming up in the next half an hour. this list live is a programme that you cannot afford to miss. hello,
9:29 pm
this is 0utside source. let's look through some of the main stories here in the bbc newsroom. president trump says nothing is off the table regarding iran and testing of missiles. and another arrival from the world of reality television. they hired a big movie star to take my place and we know how that turned out. the british antarctic survey has just finished moving its entire research centre. 0ur correspondent will explain how they did it. and we will be live in washington for the latest on the donald trump's top team.
