theresa may has said street where theresa may has said that it street where theresa may has said thatitis street where theresa may has said that it is wrong for the president to have done this. we have seen a few other cabinet members in the last couple of hours tweeting strong condemnation, as well. clearly a lot of people, they are extremely unhappy about it, but it's interesting now to see where cabinet here is beginning to out about it. in all of the papers tomorrow you have the line from downing street which is quite strong, it says it's wrong for the president to have done this. donald trump is important to britain in the post—brexit world. it'll be interesting to see tomorrow what theresa may does. she has a press conference in jordan. what theresa may does. she has a press conference injordan. i wonder if she will address it... she will be asked... definitely. we've been waiting all week for donald trump to comment on prince harry and meghan markle, but he endorses a hate fuelled group. the things they say
are abhorrent. but why is he doing this? he doesn't care about the collateral damage here. in america there is a close election in alabama at the moment. the republicans are fighting with the democrats. he has an issue of wanting to stop children immigrants from getting a deal to stay in america. you wonder if he's playing to his base again. the collateral damage it causes around the world are so severe for his domestic problems. he's the leader of the free world. we want him to do a with north korea to stop nuclear war. instead of that he's doing this. we can show sajid javid's tweet. that struck you breath when you saw it in the office. —— struck you saw it in the office. —— struck you both. yes. he said i refused to let it go and say nothing. contrast
that with the reaction of the people around donald trump at the white house. when it was mentioned, and this is the ft story, that when this question was raised sarah huckabee sanders, donald trump smack a spokesperson said whether it is a real video the threat is real. his job is to promote strong border security and strong national security. what a pity you cannot do that without posting these videos and without promoting hatred. that will play to his supporters. that's it. you've had borisjohnson tweeting about this in our ago, sajid javid, a strong tweet from him ten minutes ago. hold that thought. that is where the i takes us. is it
feasible that that state might not happen? he has been controversial for a while. emmanuel macron put out all of the red—carpet treatment for him in paris. there was a military fly pa st. him in paris. there was a military fly past. it was incredible. and he's meant to be a centrist leader. it could still be done. i don't see how donald trump could possibly come in the next few months without there being mass demonstrations in the street, which he will want to avoid. that would require the british government to say we don't want you to come. which puts them in a tricky position. this is one of our strongest allies. we are meant to find a way of working together for the good of the world. and here is this person who just constantly jeopardises those relationships. it's really frustrating for a lot of people to see that he hasn't moved away from his campaigning mode. it's just got worse, it seems, in the way he has behaved in office. let's move
on to brexit matters. take us to the front of the times. various aspects of this story to have a look at. the times is going be on what they say is an irish border deal in the offing. how close do we think, based on what they are writing? we've been hearing for a while something was about to move. it is high time it did. we heard the story about us, the uk side, being prepared to offer a bit more money. and we had heard for a long time that wants more money was put on the table these are the two issues, the irish board or the two issues, the irish board or the citizens right issue, which were meant to be the sticking points, would find a way of being resolved. the irish border, if you ask me, was a lwa ys the irish border, if you ask me, was always going to be one of the difficult issues. because of all the sensitivities involved in the irish political system. what the border was going to look like, etc. this
story is now quoting several sources to say that it is very likely there is going to be a transition deal by january, after which we can move on to talking about future trade. it does seem like whatever was discussed about the bill being a bit more money on the table might have worked wonders, and might have moved things forward a little bit. the about to happen between theresa may and jean—claude juncker. about to happen between theresa may and jean-claude juncker. how does this look to you, based on what the times has said? it's a big breakthrough. you have british business saying we need a transition deal by january. that business saying we need a transition deal byjanuary. that is so people can start moving production and staff overseas. this is huge. the irish peace of the jigsaw has three issues. ireland is the most
controversial. in the 20 minutes since we have seen this the dup don't sound worried, but the key bit is what do you do with the north and the republic. it is complicated. but does the north stay with the uk instead, while there are talks about having a republic in the eu. the north thisjoint of having a republic in the eu. the north this joint of republic, how does it stay in the uk and not be pa rt of does it stay in the uk and not be part of the eu? this would involve the government involving a package of powers to northern ireland to enable customs convergence with the irish republic on areas such as agriculture. and there are energy plans which will be laid out. critically the dup are going to be 0k critically the dup are going to be ok with this. we can all move forward. then we have a transition period which is critical to business. it allows everybody to talk about trade. you cannot underestimate the importance of this. and there's no executive in
northern ireland which further complicates things. it certainly does. the outlines of a standstill transition arrangement effectively prolong the eu membership are ready to be tabled it says on this story. that will still raise concerns about how we are going to be moving forward during that transition period. that's what businesses have a lwa ys period. that's what businesses have always wanted to know. if you have a standstill transition arrangement you will only be moving the cliff edge further ahead at some point. you aren't going to avoid it. there must be some sort of way to move things forward while staying exactly the same. chuckles that means britain stays in force to reckon more years. that has been a rumourfor a while. reckon more years. that has been a rumour for a while. we will come onto this. you have had the pro—europeans, the ones who campaigned for remained being upset, but that's beginning to switch to the people who wanted to say, we can walk away and we will be fine. take us walk away and we will be fine. take us to the guardian. a seamless
transition... the idea now that we are going to pay 40 billion, this is how much we will give you. already there was a big debate where you had there was a big debate where you had the hard brexiteers, the people who we re the hard brexiteers, the people who were up for leaving saying why do we have to pay anything? this isn't a divorce bill we are leaving a club, you don't have to pay money if you leave the club. we can walk away. we don't need 0bama to get a deal. these are people in the labour party agree with people than the conservatives. the population out there, the readers and viewers, where have we found this £40 billion to give to brussels to help secure a trade deal where we have people starving, the nhs going into a winter crisis, why should we pay this? they might now block a deal. how likely is that, do you think? some of the big beast like michael gove and boris johnson,
some of the big beast like michael gove and borisjohnson, who had been the main opposition in the cabinet to the remainders, it looks like they are coming on board. —— to the remainers. we haven't got the figure but it will be paid over a number of yea rs. but it will be paid over a number of years. it shouldn't come as a massive shock to our finances. and we are told each year it will gradually go down. that's the idea. provided the government has prepared for it it shouldn't come as a shock but we should be prepared. also it is what the government spends in a week. that puts it into context. is what the government spends in a week. that puts it into contextm does. what do they spend it on? exactly. what is the offshoot? exactly. what is the offshoot? exactly. iain duncan smith said this is the song, but in the long run we will save vast amounts by no longer paying into it. —— this is the sum.
yvette cooper was saying remember that thing on the bus, 350 million, you told us we would save that, now you told us we would save that, now you are telling us we have to pay 50 billion. people are still rerunning the same arguments. we're in a much better place than we were last week, which is something to celebrate. final word about the weather, which ta kes final word about the weather, which takes us to the daily express. a photograph from county durham where conditions for driving were difficult yesterday as that photograph would illustrate. it's going to be called. it is cold. let's hope we have a white christmas because it will put a smile on everybody's face after all of this happening in the world. are you worried about cold weather? yes, i am always cold. but it does look beautiful. it will allow us to celebrate the great british infrastructure of our trains which will run without problem. chuckles on that note, thank you both. you
can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it is there for you seven days a week. if you mist the programme any evening, you can watch it later on the bbc iplayer. thanks to my guests tonight. and you for watching. it's turning colder than it was last night. we still have some showers around. let me show you where we had earlier today. this distribution of showers isn't going to change if you are coming into western coastal areas, most of them around north sea coast where they are particularly wintry. we are already getting a frost developing the northern areas. that will develop more widely across the uk. around the edges where we have the showers there is a risk of icy patches. those are tempered just
by the end of the night in towns and cities. in the countryside it will easily slip down to minus six. a really cold start for thursday. into scotland, we have more wintry showers across the north of scotland and icy patches. many areas in central and south dry, sunny and cold. the wintry showers just running right along the east coast all the way towards east anglia. inland, dry, sunny, cold, and frosty. the wind picking up and adding to the chill. those showers are still there around pembrokeshire, and perhaps into cornwall and devon. they won't move much. showers may ease up in northern ireland but they will keep going across eastern scotland, down easternmost part of england, all the way to east anglia. and there will be snow in those, as well, particularly over the hills. for many coming between those showers, large parts of the uk will be dry, sunny, and cold. and even gold in
the wind. we would drag more this wintry showers inland overnight and into friday morning across england. some icy patches. otherwise dry weather and sunshine for wales. but the wind is easing and changing direction across scotland and northern ireland where we will see more cloud and rain. another cold day but signs of change this weekend. we still have high pressure out to the west of the uk, but it is slipping south and allowing these wea k slipping south and allowing these weak weather systems to come in and feed into the uk. so we will push away the cold air and slowly over the weekend we will replace it with milder air, coming round the weekend we will replace it with milderair, coming round the the weekend we will replace it with milder air, coming round the top of that high pressure, feeding into the uk from off the atlantic. not only will we see temperatures rising, we will we see temperatures rising, we will see much more cloud around, double figures on sunday. this is bbc news. the headlines at 11:00pm: britain offers more money to unblock the brexit negotiations — reportedly as much as 50 billion
euros. donald trump shares anti—muslim material on social media. downing street says he was wrong to do so. the white house disagrees. a convicted bosnian war criminal kills himself by drinking poison in court, after his sentence is upheld. and on newsnight: we now know the irish border is turning out to be one of the stickiest brexit issues to resolve. this evening, we will hear from the irish agriculture secretary. can he see a way out of this? will ireland block brexit trade talks?
