what, do you think our country's so innocent?" this is in arab news. the independent front page has france's far—right party leader marine le pen, who has launched her presidential campaign with an attack on islamic fundamentalism. she told supporters in lyon that she alone could protect them, if she was elected. the ft says chinese overseas deals worth almost $75 billion were cancelled last year. their collapse was attributed to regulatory clampdowns and restrictions on foreign exchange. the international new york times looks at how some chinese companies are making headway in the manufacture of "smart weapons". the paper says beijing is seeking to reshape warfare by bringing artificial intelligence to the battlefield. and finally, the guardian takes an in—depth look at greece's economy. the paper says the country's economy has shrunk by more than a quarter, equivalent to last century's great depression in america. joining us is cornelia meyer, who is ceo of mrl corporation, a business consultancy. good morning. good morning. so you
5:46 am
have been telling us you watched every single political programme broadcast in the united states over the weekend. how much was about trump versus the judiciary, as gulf news puts it? it was maybe 40, 5096. it is really big, and it is very interesting. the interesting thing is when you see the court which has... you know, the court of appeals which has rejected the order of president trump, that people can come in, is in washington state. in the same state, another district caught on the east coast has said he could go ahead so it is bound to go to the supreme court because they don't like it when district court contradict each other. but also because it seems, a professor of law was telling us earlier, that it seems as if the constitutionality of this executive order has not yet been decided upon. that is surely
5:47 am
going to be the key. that is absolutely going to be the key. what is not helpful is the whole rhetoric of mrtrump. you is not helpful is the whole rhetoric of mr trump. you know, is not helpful is the whole rhetoric of mrtrump. you know, going is not helpful is the whole rhetoric of mr trump. you know, going out therein are bad moment on twitter saying a so—called judge. it shows disrespect for the checks and bala nces disrespect for the checks and balances of the system, and i think thatis balances of the system, and i think that is what got so many people in america hot under the collar. you work a lot in the middle east, and we have had reports of the back of this executive order, to get the feeling of people around the middle east, which is a big area. a lot of them are saying he wants to destroy islam. do you think people in the middle east overall are judging the order in that way, or are they looking at it, ok, we can understand the concern of president trump. they cannot understand the concern of president trump. they think they are clearly on the basis of religion disk unaided against. you would not believe how many trump caricature as
5:48 am
i got over the weekend from my middle east and friends. i mean, it was just a back and forth. so people are very concerned. and there is also a national security concern for the united states. they are fighting wars. they still have people on the ground in iraq. they need to work with those countries, and saying they can't really fat, well, there must be other ways around it. you are putting your own man in danger, if you do that —— they can't really vet. and when you look at this plethora of executive orders, they go out there without the care and deliberation that go into laws and policies, and they replaced laws and policies. it is scary. let's have a look at arab news, staying on the same theme, as it were. this is actually quoting an interview on fox news between president trump and bill o'reilly. a very attack dog
5:49 am
journalist. arab news gives us it's taken the interview. what is your take? i was surprised that bill o'reilly, who is to the right of anything i know, was so tough on trump. but the thing is, that is what the hard—core republicans cannot understand. they, in their psyche, given most senators are of a certain age, they lived through the cold war, and russia is a big enemy. on one thing, yes, one needs to come to understandings with russia and work with russia, but what he said he was quite outrageous because he took putin's narrative. you know, here's the commander—in—chief, the president, and the advertiser in chief, for the united states. what is he saying to the world? we are going out and killing people? this is clearly a democratic country, he can't take the narrative of his
5:50 am
adversary, that is not a terribly clever thing to do, is it? yes, the mention going into the iraq war and referring to george w bush, not by name, but anyway. let's talk about this french politician, marine le pen, who is hoping to cash in on the wave of trump, as it were, and ride that wave in france. the question is, can she ride that wave? there is a similarfeeling, herfather, mr le pen was even more right wing. and one thing that was really working for her was that fillon, who was the republican candidate who everyone thought was the saviour who would get us out of getting le pen elected, he had a scandal involving payment to his wife and two children as his staffers, and overpaying
5:51 am
them. so with fillon gagged, she is ina them. so with fillon gagged, she is in a better position. but macron, who is an independent who came out and one would usually say it is very bad if you are independent and have never run a campaign but you know what? in these days that may be an advantage. so what is going on with china, what is the ft‘s take? advantage. so what is going on with china, what is the ft's take? this isa china, what is the ft's take? this is a report from baker mckenzie talking about foreign investment from china from the rest of the world, and there are two ways of looking at this. a huge amount of money invested once again in 2016 but the financial times looks at the huge amount which was blocked, which wasn't invested, which was intended for investment it wasn't. and part of it was blocked because the chinese said we cannot have that much money, there is no strategic rationale. some of it was locked because in germany, in the us,
5:52 am
companies said no. —— blocked. but there were some very strategic deals as well, one of which gives china the ability to control nearly 30, 40% of seats. the ability to control nearly 30, 4096 of seats. what is that? it is an agricultural firm that does seeds and things like that. so it is a very in portland, a very important agricultural, chemicalfirm very in portland, a very important agricultural, chemical firm —— syngenta. and it went through, and we discussed it here —— very important firm. it needed us approval because it has such big as is also in the united states. do you mind if we skip the new york times, because at the end of the day we have talked about al arlott in this particular segment, if ai is going to be part of weaponry, that is a natural progression. the chinese are hiring people from silicon valley.
5:53 am
and china wanting to lead the way on everything, and why not? whereas greece at the moment? well, 25 or 30% shrinking of economy, you see real fallout. 30% shrinking of economy, you see realfallout. pensioners who 30% shrinking of economy, you see real fallout. pensioners who are really struggling, people are going through their savings, which doesn't help. and let's not forget they have a huge number of immigrants. they have a huge number of immigrants to deal with, and so you have cypriots trying to fight it for the greek people, and then you have the imf and europe, and the imf being a little more stringent than europe, but you don't know what will happen. also, trump comes in here again, it is he can actually block decisions of the imf. if the imf wants to be more lenient, he can block it. because the imf has been more friendly to greece. they want a restructure that debt, and greece would struggle to pay it back in the
5:54 am
current form. and europe has been tougher. europe has been tougher. the seniors, europe, you have to see, is also driven very much by mr schauble, the german finance minister, who is coming up for election. they say we have paid so much to greece, and enough is enough. and what this article says, and they are right, they need to come up with solutions before the onslaught of elections, in holland, in france and in germany, and that can upset the apple cart again. in france and in germany, and that can upset the apple cart againm is almost as if you are hearing the count from the director, which is now at five seconds, and that is all the time we have. enjoy the rest of your week. have a really good day, we will see you tomorrow. goodbye. hello there. it has been a bit of a mixed weekend, weatherwise. temperatures have been slowly dipping down by a few degrees. this is how we ended the day in studland, dorset. you can see the sunset over poole harbour there, a very serene scene,
5:55 am
with the murmuration, too. by monday morning, though, many of us are likely to see some frost and some fog, so a bit of a wintry flavour to the weather to start off your new working week. so let's look at first thing monday morning. temperatures, even in our towns and cities, really a degree or so either side of freezing. it could be quite a bit colder than that in the countryside first thing. so a sharp frost, and then later in the day we see low pressure approaching from the atlantic, bringing rain to western parts of the uk on that weather front. but to start things off, then, monday morning at 8:00am, cold and clear across much of wales, southern and central england. the odd pocket of fog around, particularly across parts of eastern england, and certainly some frost here. cloudier skies towards the far west of england, western parts of wales, and northern ireland, too. but chilly for much of northern ireland, northern england and scotland. we've got some frost first thing in the morning, and some mist and some fog patches to watch out for, too. so take care on the roads, because we have got that frost, and also the fog around. through the course of the day, we will see that front moving into western areas, so the winds
5:56 am
picking up for northern ireland, wales, the south—west of england, too, with the arrival of some rain. central and eastern parts of the country remaining dry, certainly less windy, and colder, too, with temperatures between around about five in the east, to ten further west. moving through the course of monday evening and overnight, increasingly that rain will turn to snow over the higher ground, as it makes its way eastwards across northern england, and scotland, too. further south, it will be falling as rain. and then, once that rain clears through, early on tuesday, we are looking at, again, some fogginess first thing in the morning. so this is how tuesday looks. we've got this weather front which is sitting across eastern parts of the uk. it bumps into high pressure, which is situated across scandinavia, and that means the weather front won't be going anywhere in a hurry. so it remains fairly cloudy towards the east, a few spots of rain. a slice of sunshine for the likes of south—west scotland, northern ireland and wales, but then further rain working into the south—west late in the day, and temperatures a touch milder than recent days, between around
5:57 am
about 6—10 degrees. then, heading through into wednesday, a quieter day here. we've got that front in the eastjust fading away, so still quite cloudy towards the east, but it should be dry. some brighter skies, particularly for parts of wales, the south—west of england, too, and temperatures generally between around about 4—9 degrees on wednesday. and then, towards the end of the week, the milder air gets pushed away, and what we are going to see is colder conditions coming in from the east. bye for now. hello, this is breakfast, with louise minchin and dan walker. upfront charges for so—called health tourists coming to england for treatment. overseas patients will be told to pay in advance for non—urgent care or could be turned away. it comes as winter pressures take their toll. the demand for beds sees the number of patients at nine out of ten hospitals in england reach unsafe levels. good morning, it's monday
