well, the times website has a different take on the talks. it says the leaders played second fiddle to melanie trump, who upstaged them in this bright yellow dress. the paper also reports on fears of a trade war, because of a global oversupply of steel. it looks at how the us could restrict imports of cheap steel from china, which may then find its way to europe. the eu doesn't want its own producers to become "collateral damage". "the one billion pound bribe". that's the independent‘s headline — writing about theresa may's agreement with the dup, to form a minority government. the party will support the conservatives on key issues, in return for money for northern ireland. and it's 20 years since british writerjk rowling published her first harry potter book. some estimates say the franchise is now worth a staggering $25 billion. the market watch website has that story. with us is mark davies — ceo of strategy consultancy camberton. let us start with that story in the
gulf news about the trump travel ban. many lauding this as a victory for donald trump. it's been watered down. he is lauding it is a victory for himself and that is really what matters because his core support believes everything he says. it is fairly weak compared with what he originally started. although review began in october and the chances are it will be upheld again. what will happen in the next few weeks and months until october? one of the problems with this is that it is not clear and credible —— whether people will get as far as immigration in the united states and be turned back. who knows? one of the things that this is there has been so much uncertainty. it is all in the telling. when bill clinton came in,
he introduced travel bans of sorts and nobody said blue when donald trump did so, everybody went completely mad. this built into the largest story of how people see the trump presidency. we see him slightly askance but there are, the republicans continue to win elections to the house of representatives despite the fact that we are concerned, he does crazy things. let us move on to the business standard. the indian leader, narendra modi, both of them are very keen to stress there are strong relationship. for a while, we have seen the us court in china. now they are leaning more towards india. this could have been troublesome because of that move towards china that donald trump has had which was a change of policy from obama and george w bush. a change of policy from obama and
george w bush. he and modi had spoken four times before but people we re unsure spoken four times before but people were unsure as to where this was going. it was unclear what he would say about kashmir. they were potential stumbling blocks but what modi has written about, they have come to decent agreements about trade. modi is positive that the trade. modi is positive that the trade will accelerate significantly from here. they are quite some characters. modi has more twitter followers than donald trump. just. several million more. but they are both political outsiders. just looking at the optics in the rose garden, maybe giving him a bear hug. absolutely. they do have some problematic things in common. they are both set their stall out against the muslim world in a fairly strong way. certainly their supporters would look at them and say, these are people who have taken a strong stands against muslims. that is
something that they have potentially have done around which other people would say is not good. same story, different angle. it is amazing, this sort of stuff. it is not an angle at all. it is quite cheap, by her standards. a couple of thousand dollars. $55,000 for the g7. when you are talking about having f—16 fighters made in india and india buying a lot of american weaponry and in the way to run the story is on the dress being worn by melania trump, you have to wonder. the times business section, concerns about a trade war. we oon trump again in a way because what is being talked about is the idea that is going to use a about is the idea that is going to use a section of the trade enforcement act. this would allow
him to cite national security fears to limit the amount of chinese steel thatis to limit the amount of chinese steel that is dumped in the united states. it wouldn't be anything to do with security, it would be about protecting american steel interests and the fear from the european perspective is the chinese deal would then be dumped on europe which would then be dumped on europe which would have implications for the european steel manufacturers. we in britain have had significant problems with the globalisation and steel specifically which went to it —— which went into administration and the government had problems dealing with the job losses from that we had first—hand experience of what cheap chinese still does and from the european perspective as a whole, they are now very concerned because of action taken by the united states, that would be exacerbated here in europe. previous presidents have looked at using the same criteria to prevent this.
indeed, donald trump has a history of using this kind of excuse to limit things. when he talked about the laptop ban on flights going to the laptop ban on flights going to the united states. he did not ban laptops on flights. on to the dup. a lot of criticism in the british papers about this but the independent is calling it the £1 billion bribe, $1.3 billion and the dup coming back for more. this is not a one—off. dup coming back for more. this is not a one-off. if they think theresa may remains insecure, i think it's almost certain they will come back for more. the real cost for this to the british government is far higher. there are lots of things the dup has insisted will happen, such as that the triple lock will get moved and fuel payments don't
change, which will have a significant cost to the exchequer. the billion is what is going to northern ireland and that has made the headlines because wales and scotland are not happy because they do not get an equivalent amount. just for our non—british viewers, according to the barnett formula, the money given to the regions is allocated according to what the barnett formula allocates which means barnett formula allocates which m ea ns wales barnett formula allocates which means wales and scotland could come back and say we need more as well. that's what they have tried to do. in wales, which is the more deprived area when you look at social security, they are doing they should get the same amount of money. this is about porkbarrelling. this is about staying in power and people will rail against that but the reality is that what brings stability to the government which in international terms is probably positive because from the brexit
perspective, europeans don't want to be talking to a british government they think will fall in months. but pa rt they think will fall in months. but part of the issue is the power—sharing executive in northern ireland still needs to get back on its feet sometime this week. this is a tradition. it's not a done deal yet. harry potter. you really need my nine—year—old son here to talk about harry potter, he will tell you chapter and verse. i am a little bit old for it. ijust about missed it. you can read it as an adult. what is interesting in this piece is how much moneyjk rowling has given to charity. £160 million, she has donated to charity, which is an astonishing amount. and with her la st astonishing amount. and with her last film, fantastic beasts, she reappeared on the forbes billionaire list despite giving it away. another
interesting line, she has suggested she is down asjk rowling because originally her publisher suggested if she came down as joanne originally her publisher suggested if she came down asjoanne rowling, she might not be as interesting to boys who were reading it. the pronunciation of her surname differs. i heard you say it, and i realised i must get it right. you should read them as a grown—up. they arejust as magical. should read them as a grown—up. they are just as magical. i have read them to my kids. i do not know them chapter and verse, page by page. we are out of time. that is it from oui’s. are out of time. that is it from ours. we will be back with more news throughout the day. hello, good morning. june has been a funny old month, hasn't it?
it didn't start off too clever, and it's not going to end particularly brightly, either. last week, of course, 35 degrees, the hottestjune day for 41 years. we have already seen temperatures this week at 25 on monday, but that is the peak of the temperature this week. the rest will be turning cooler, and there will be quite a bit of rain around too. ahead of that rain, quite a colourful scene here in the sunshine in scarborough in north yorkshire. that was ahead of this cloud, mind you, which has been bringing rain notjust to northern ireland, but to south—west scotland and also into northern england. that rain is moving its way northwards and eastwards at the moment, and so it's quite a wet start to tuesday across the mainland of scotland. towards the northern isles, the far
north, perhaps somewhat drier. the rain, though, should be soon clearing away from northern ireland. quite a muggy feel here, especially as it brightens up. but quite a wet start to the day for northern england, especially around the lake district, some of that rain affecting the north of wales, south of that. many places are dry, a few showers and possibly the odd flash of lightning not far away across the english channel. now, as we run through the day, that wetter weather across the north tends to peter out very slowly. so not quite as wet in the afternoon across scotland, nor indeed for northern england. slow—moving showers developing across northern ireland and the chance of some thundery showers developing towards the south—east of england as well, perhaps drifting their way northwards, combining with the rain in the north. a cool feel in eastern scotland and north—east england, with the easterly breeze, quite muggy to the south. and it is to the south where we will have to look at the rain really developing on tuesday evening and tuesday night. areas of low pressure moving across the uk, this one in particular dragging with that weather front, some heavy rain across england and wales overnight. still quite a wet start on wednesday. and the rain continues
in northern england, parts of wales, pushing into northern england and southern scotland on wednesday itself. to the south, it may well brighten up a touch. quite muggy air here again, but only 20 degrees this time in london, 13 likely for newcastle and aberdeen with a breeze off the north sea. that breeze will continue to blow in some rain to central, southern scotland, northern ireland, perhaps northern england. south, somewhat drier, brighter and warmer, chance of some heavy showers here. areas of low pressure remain from thursday and into friday, the rain pushing southwards into england and wales, and then we get this northerly wind coming down across the uk. very unsettled through this week ahead. rain could be heavy, may bring some localised flooding, and also quite a bit cooler than it was on monday. hello, this is breakfast, with naga munchetty and dan walker. anger over the one billion pound deal between the dup and the conservatives. the agreement is condemned as a bribe — but the government says it could help restore power sharing in northern ireland. good morning, it's
