Senator John Barrasso from Wyoming is part of the Republican leadership


and he sits on the energy and the environment committees.


I spoke to him a brief time ago about these new executive orders


and President Trump's busy first couple of days.


It looks like these signings this morning on the pipelines, that jobs


are going to win. I believe it is not one or the other, I think we can


have clean air, clean water, clean land and still a healthy economy.


The Obama administration had so many expensive administrations, but I


think Donald Trump will strike the right balance. He has done that with


the right EPA administrator to join his Cabinet. Would you ever support


environmental regulations? I think that the whole purpose of the EPA is


important but they have lost their way in terms of the environmental


protection and they cause to have the biggest problem is that we have


had in the last number of years, so it is time for us to really


modernise and improve the EPA so we can protect the land under water and


the air, but at the same time make sure that we have as strong, healthy


economy, which is what people want. Jobs are such a critical part of


building an economy in a country and in terms of general well-being of


the people and the quality-of-life. People in this country, it is


clearly focused on having a good paying jobs. I also want to ask you


about the TPP and the withdrawal of America from that. Other countries


around the world said they are going to go ahead and do their own trade


deals. We are looking at Mexico, Chile, China, Germany all weighing


in on this. Is this really the moment for America to be pulling


back from global alliances like this? Donald Trump campaigned on


this so it should not be a surprise that he took this action. I am not


surprised by this at all. He is a world-class trader, he has a great


reputation for being able to get great deals. I am a free trader. For


my homestead of Wyoming and it is important that we can export our


products, our number one product is beef. When I head to the Pacific rim


and visit with the President of Japan, he wants to import liquefied


natural gas from the United States. You supported the temp two. Is this


guy a position in which conservative doctrine of free trade is going to


be thrown out of the window by republicans like yourself in order


to satisfy the new president? The president gets to make these


decisions as we all want fairer trade, but I think he will be able


to put forward trade agreements that are going to be favourable to the


United States, that are going to be good with the American taxpayers and


he will continue to work on trade. My concern is in terms of China they


will try to go into any void that exists. When I have been to that


part of the world, what I know about China is that people in the country


is related to the TPP want to be friends of the United States, but


they don't want to be enemies to China. Would you have preferred it


if America had not been withdrawn from the TPP? I think President


Obama did not make the case. You had all three presidential candidates,


Hillary Clinton, Bernie Saunders and Donald Trump all came out against


the TPP so it should be no surprise to anyone that this is where we are


now. I continue to be a free trader, believe in free markets and I want


to be able to use overseas markets for Wyoming products. Senator John


Barrasso, thank you for joining us. You start to get a feel of where the


divisions might be between the administration and the republicans


in Congress. He is very much in favour of the deregulation of


business but not so at ease with the way the administration is going on


trade deals. If I can show you a picture. We keep talking about these


executive orders. Focus on the people behind. We will see a lot of


these people over the next few years. Maybe you could point out one


or two of them and wiping RM portent.


Get a new team Trump! Behind the president on the left, the man with


the dark hair is rinsed pre-bursts. He is the conduit between the White


House and the Republican Party. He will be a big liaison figure. Kelly


and Conway was the campaign manager for Donald Trump, the first woman to


run a presidential campaign. The tall gentleman with a green tie,


that is Jarrod Kushner. He is the husband of Ivanka Trump and he is a


special adviser to the president. There has been quite a lot of fuss


about nepotism and whether it was OK for him to work in the White House.


He is very close to the president and will be a key figure


particularly on international affairs. The gentleman with a blue


shirt and yellow tie, Steve Bannon, maybe the most controversial pose in


that photograph, he ran Breitbart news, right Wing News site, very


controversial and hard hitting. He is the person who was behind Donald


Trump's inaugural address. A strong nationalist, vary in favour of


Brexit and close, wanting to develop ties, with Marine Le Pen of the


National front. He will be a figure in Europe as well as here in the


states. Marine Le Pen was in Trump Tower is


just the other week. We were saying in the headlines that he has been


meeting the bosses of the car industry. He is very good at this


good cop, bad cop relationship. He hits them with these tariffs, that


they will have 35% tariffs, then he showers them with love and


croissants. Let's have a listen to this conversation.


We're going to make process much more simple for the auto companies


and everybody else who wants to do business in the United States.


You'll find us to be from very inhospitable


I think we'll go down as one of the most friendly countried.


I think we'll go down as one of the most friendly countries.


I have friends who want to build in the United States.


They go many many years and then they can't get their environmental


permit, over something that nobody ever heard of before.


I am to a large extent an environmentalist,


I believe in it, but it's out of control and we're


And we're going to either give you your permits or we're not


going to give you your permits, but you're going to


And generally speaking, we're going to be giving you your permits,


Not for a lot of environmentalists, they will not agree with him that he


is the environmentalist. This is another new thing that people will


have bigger Tuesday in America, a different way of presidential


intervention directly and American businesses. That wants it


particularly well with republicans. It'll be interesting to see how


those car executives feel about Donald Trump in a few years.


What is this word bigly? The Trump administration says it is


not bigly home and they say it is big league, but I am hearing ugly,


too. We will have to get used to that as well.


If you have these powers of executive order you can do with G1,


bigly days. Just before we came on air,


the White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, held a briefing


for the media, his Let's have a listen


to what was on the agenda today. Does the president believes that


millions voted illegally in this election and what evidence do you


have of widespread voter fraud in the selection, if that is the case?


The president does believe that. He stated that before. He has stated


his concerns over voter fraud people voting illegally in the campaign. He


maintains that belief based on studies that people have presented


to him. What evidence? Senator Ryan today said there was no evidence.


Other groups have said that they don't agree with the assessment by


the president. As I said, believe the president has believe that for a


while based on studies and information that he has.


Our North America editor, Jon Sopel, was listening.


Why do this? Why get yourself into a position where you're doing a huge


amount of business popular with the American public, then the thing that


dominates the press conferences Donald Trump saying something that


wasn't true? Because 90% of the time Donald Trump is driving the central


message about jobs, what he was elected to do, and there is a bit of


Donald Trump, whether it is the size of the crowd at his inauguration or


the number of people that voted for him in the popular vote, he gets


distracted. He is obsessed by those numbers. In the campaign he used to


talk about hollow and many more people went to his rallies than


Hillary Clinton's. He is doing it still. He hasn't let go of the fact


that he lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million. What was telling


about that clip from Sean Spicer was what evidence have you got? Where


are these reports? What he went on to say afterwards was well there was


a nonpartisan body who had a research paper in 2008. Hang on,


thought we were talking about 2016! He seems to be extrapolating from an


early report about what potentially could have happened before to


explain why he did not win the popular vote in November, but with


absolutely no evidence of voter fraud in that election. No one has


reported anything like that in terms of what unfolded in November across


the 50 states. We should cover the other and use because otherwise this


becomes the big distraction, we spent our time talking about this.


What are the other headlines? The defence of the Keystone XL pipeline,


saying he was a champion of the environment but also that this would


create thousands of jobs, the US is there to enable these things. The


other things we will be looking out for in days to come and the leading


up to who could be the Supreme Court choice for him.


I have read through the week a lot of these comment pieces from some of


the big writers in the American press who are concerned about the


relationship they have at the White House. It seems to me that they will


have to start packing up on the facts, calmly and deliberately


deconstructing what this administration says. Is that the way


they need to go about it rather than reacting in a panicked way? I think


it is a really challenging environment. What we need to do is


when something is paid and the factually incorrect, we are, in the


media, our reputation, and the BBC in particular, and being objective


and impartial and telling the truth, so if we see something that is not


truthful we should point about. We should not be obsessed by just


trying to trip up Donald Trump, looking peevish, looking entitled,


like we don't like him or are angry or cross in any of our reporting. We


have to be fair and balanced but just say, hang on, that can't be


allowed to stand if it is not correct. It is our responsibility to


do that and that is what our audience expects of us. Some of the


people in the White House could not believe that they weren't being


treated with all the dignity that they deserved. Well, I think they


need to get over themselves because Donald Trump will do press


communication in a very different way and about mean that some of my


esteemed colleagues at the White House might have a slightly bruised


ego, live with it. Something you would never have, of course.


Any more news on the Supreme Court? All of these executive orders will


change things temporarily in America. They can be reversed, the


Supreme Court not so much. The Supreme Court appointment is going


to be probably all things being equal, the most consequential


decision that Donald Trump is going to make in his presidency because


the person who gets appointed, and it is likely to be somebody quite


conservative, someone who believes in toughening the laws on abortion.


At the moment the Supreme Court is balanced, for liberals for


conservatives. If it becomes five republicans, abortion law can


change, which will be a big thing for social policy in this country.


Not just for the term of Donald Trump, but for years going forward.


Thank you for joining us, Jon Sopel. There are big changes coming up in


this administration, Christian. Some of the other key developments


in Washington today now. President Trump is planning to keep


James Comey as head of the FBI, according to media reports


here in the US. Mr Comey was strongly criticised


by Democrats in the run up to November's election


for re-turning to an investigation The bureau is still investigating


potential ties between Russia A former American Defence Secretary


says he's concerned the new leadership is giving


an impression the US is retreating Robert Gates, who was also a former


director of the CIA, told the BBC Mr Trump's policies


could well be exploited Mr Gates, who served


in the George W Bush and Barack Obama administrations,


says China, Iran or Russia, will step into any vacuum


that is left by the US. More now on Mr Trump's


senior appointments. A Senate committee has


approved Ben Carson as the new Housing Secretary,


allowing the nomination But there are delays


on the confirmation of Jeff Sessions, who Donald Trump


wants as his Attorney General. The top Democrat on the Senate


Judiciary Committee has Senator Diane Feinstein said


the women's march at the weekend The role of the Attorney General


she said is to defend equal rights. One thing we want to do in this


programme is connect the dots between the new political trends


on both sides of the Atlantic. Britain made its decision last year,


but supporters of leaving the European Union may well


think their populist revolution is moving a lot


slower than America's. Who gets to pull the


trigger on divorce? Today, the Supreme Court


decided the Prime Minister, She will need parliament's approval


before handing in the formal notice to quit the European Union,


known as Article 50 From the sidelines,


I was there to watch. Democracy, said Abraham Lincoln, is


the government of the people, by the people, for the people. In his


statue outside the Sabine Court today, they were debating that very


issue. The ruling, when it came, made clear that the court was not


trying to frustrate the vote to leave the European Union. The


judgment would only determine whether government could start the


Brexit process without Parliamentary consent. Today, via majority of 8-3,


the Supreme Court rules that the government cannot trigger article 50


without an act of Parliament authorising it do so. The government


then defeated. But the 11 judges also had to decide whether


Westminster can take this decision alone or whether the devolved


government of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland should also have a


say. On the devolution issue, the court unanimously rules that UK


ministers are not legally compelled to consult the devolved legislatures


before triggering article 50. The verdict was welcomed by the former


Attorney General Dominic Grieve, he told me that irrespective of how


people had voted last June, this was a good day for Parliamentary


democracy. I always took the view that the idea that you could trigger


article 50 without a vote of Parliament was an extraordinary


thing to do because so much primary legislation has enacted. I wasn't


apprised of the decision of the High Court and I wasn't surprised by the


decision of the Supreme Court, that seems to rub us to stand up for our


historic liberties. Having promised to trigger article 50 by the end of


March, the ideal solution for the Prime Minister would be to purchase


the single line of legislation before the Parliament for peers and


MPs to rubber stamp. Short, simple, difficult for opposing MPs to amend,


except government lawyers have been advising the Prime Minister that if


use can somebody till now, she could be exposing herself to future legal


challenges somewhere down the line. The Secretary of State...


Nonetheless, the government will take that risk. Confident that night


MPs will support the timetable they have set out. This will be a


straightforward bill. It is not about whether or not the UK should


leave the European Union. That decision has already been made by


the people of the United Kingdom. In exchange for their support, the


opposition will want guarantees of a meaningful -- meaningful vote at the


end of the process. Scottish nationalists don't rule out a second


referendum on Scottish independence. The decision is looming for


Scotland. Are we prepared to allow her future to be dictated by a


Westminster government that is going down a path that I think the


majority of people in Scotland don't want to go down, or are we going to


take our future into your own hands? The Westminster Parliament is


sovereign, says the court, and only Parliament can change the law.


Ultimately, they have underscored the very foundation of Britain's


unwritten constitution and as Abraham would say, these important


principles, are inflexible. Our chief political correspondent


Vicki Young is in Westminster. I am always conscious with my former


as a Paris and Rome correspondent that we are guilty of a bit of


navel-gazing in London. Let's think about the Europeans. Will they be


worried that what has happened might affect the Brexit timetable? Well, I


don't think it will, is the truth. I think there are many people, many


voters in this country who voted for Remain who are looking at this


judgment today thinking this is the big moment, this would give


Parliament the chance to block except and I think they will be


disappointed. I have been speaking to MPs and peers and there just


isn't the appetite for a fight. It is quite difficult to explain to


people who look think most Labour MPs are ardent Remainers, why


wouldn't the -- why wouldn't they take this opportunity? But they


don't want to be seen to be standing in the wake of the British people.


Equally, in the House of Lords today, we have senior figure


standing up to say it would be foolish, unwise and completely wrong


for an unelected House of Lords to block a referendum, to block what


the government wants and what the House of Commons is going to vote


for. So the government is adamant that they will stick to that


self-imposed timetable of triggering article 50 by the end of March, so I


think that is going to happen. People here have been asking me


about this, the state of the union. We heard Nicola Sturgeon they're


clearly not happy with this. We know that Donald Trump has supported


Brexit and Brexit hazard supporters here, but people are and confused


about what will happen to the United Kingdom. Are we looking at a


shrunken United Kingdom after this? Nicola Sturgeon predicted that this


would bring a second independent referendum for Scotland a step


closer. Scotland voted to stay in the United Kingdom, just a year ago


or so, she can't call another referendum. It has to come from


Westminster. Her argument is that the type of Brexit that Theresa May


is aiming for, taking the UK out of the single market for example, that


is not what Scotland voted for. She would like Scotland to become


independent and be a part of the European Union. The court today


ruled that Scotland will not get a say on all of this at this point. Of


course, Nicola Sturgeon doesn't want to have a referendum unless she is


convinced she will win. At the moment the polls suggest that


wouldn't happen. I think she will bide your time. Certainly, she is


issuing these warnings regularly. Obviously it was a defeat for the


government, but that clarified an awful lot of them, particularly on


Scotland and whether they had a veto. But also the issue of Northern


Ireland. The Assembly collapsed the recently. That problem also taken


out of the picture. Lots of people were very concerned about this, but


if the Supreme Court today had ruled that not just Scotland but the Welsh


Assembly and also in Northern Ireland, if they were given the say,


how would they do that? Northern Ireland is having a general


election. Who would feedback the views of the people of Northern


Ireland? They were extremely concerned about all of that. The


headline is that the government did not get its way today, they were


defeated. If you go below that, it could've been a lot worse for the


government today and I think they are sighing with relief that they


probably can stick to the timetable. Vicki Young in Westminster, there is


certainly an awful lot going on on both sides of the Atlantic, which is


exactly why we are doing this programme.


Just a reminder that every evening after this show we hand


One of us will spend 10 or 15 minutes on Facebook Live each night

Some of us had a lovely day today, for others it stayed grey and for a


few we have fog all day. That dog will become more widespread again


tonight, crossing into the Midlands. Some icy surfaces, too. Further west


it will be more wild, they're a bit of light and breezy for Northern


Ireland and Scotland. The fog will cause disruption in some places,


tomorrow morning in particular. Some of the airports could be affected


again. Icy surfaces, too, where you have that fog. For the north and


West the fog will be less of a hazard. Some early sunshine and


parts of South West England running into East Wales. Across Northern


Ireland it should be above freezing in most places by eight o'clock.


Northern Ireland and Scotland, much milder here, above freezing. A bit


of drizzly rain coming in on the breeze. Still a lot of dry weather,


albeit cloudy. Further east, the four bulletin to look cloud. Graham


quite chilly in eastern England. Some Southwest and on into Northern


counties. Distinctly chilly underneath the clouds in East Anglia


and the south-east. That is a sign of things to come. From Wednesday


into Thursday we will tap into a reservoir of particularly cold air


which has been sitting across the heart of Europe for some time. The


breeze will bring that cold air in our direction. Quite a shock to the


system on Thursday, I think. A brisk south-easterly wind, the bit of


cloud and maybe the odd bit of snow. You will need a few layers,


particularly in central Andes to parts of the UK. Some places will


struggle to get above freezing, if you had on the wind that will feel


even colder. Not quite as cold on Friday, turning a bit milder from


the south-west, but that cold the holding on and on the east. Most


places dry, but patchy rain beginning to turn up as weather


fronts dry to pushing of the Atlantic. How quickly they make


inroads is still open to some died, but certainly some weather fronts


there or thereabouts. There will be some rain around this weekend. On a


positive note will be less cold for some than recently. Still a lot of


dry weather, but watch out for areas of fog.


Welcome back to 100 Days from BBC News.


President Donald Trump has signed executive orders advancing


the construction of two controversial oil pipelines -


which President Obama had previously blocked.


In meetings with car industry leaders the president told them


to increase American production and jobs.


We'll be live at the New York Stock Exchange with more reaction.


China says it has "indisputable sovereignty" over parts


The Chinese foreign ministry said today Beijing would "remain firm


to defend its rights in the region," that's after the White House said


on Monday the US would "make sure it protect it's own interests


President Trump has already upset on China over the status of Taiwan.


And during his campaign he threatened to impose some pretty


punishing tariffs on Chinese imports - which could lead


So how might China respond to the new US administration?


Here's our Beijing Correspondent John Sudworth.


China was once isolated behind its Great Wall


but it was here too that its emergence onto


In 1972 another competitive and controversial US Republican


president stood on this wall and used it as a metaphor.


Richard Nixon's speech that day looked to future


in which there are no walls between people, laying


the foundations of course for one of the most important collateral


trading relationships the world has ever seen.


The benefits of that relationship has been celebrated


America threatens China with 45% import duties


The Chinese are not just going to take it, they're


going to respond more or less in-kind probably.


What are the potential dangers in Donald Trump's strategy?


This is very disturbing and the consequences


for the international system and for the health of the global


But at a briefing by senior Chinese diplomats, I put it to them that


Mr Trump is not so much attacking free trade, as unfair trade.


Should China not do more to put its money where its mouth is,


removing the big subsidies to state-owned enterprises,


removing some of the restrictions and denial of market access that


still hinders so many foreign companies trying


I understand what you mean, but in general the direction


is there, the effort is there, and I have very strong belief


and confidence in improved environments for foreign companies.


These days tourists can gaze into a period in China's history


when its reluctant rulers were forced to trade


Few US companies that do business in China today would dispute that


significant barriers to trade remain.


The question though, is whether to cajole or to coerce


and Mr Trump it seems may be about to embark


on upon his own version of gunboat diplomacy.


Over that much traded commodity, tea, I asked about Mr Trump's threat


to challenge China's territorial claims unless it makes


TRANSLATION: He plays with fire, Mr Trump plays with fire.


But China also has fire and it is going to burn him.


It is trade of course that has made China a wealthy superpower


To talk more about China we are joined by Professor Ann Lee,


she is an Independent Economic Advisor to the Chinese Government.


And here in London, Diane Wei Liang, she's an author, and she was one


of the students involved in the 1989 Tiannamen Square protest.


Diane, you are looking back towards China and looking I'm sure at social


media, what do people there make of Donald Trump and some of these


threats? At the beginning when Donald Trump was campaigning to


become president his rhetoric had been very much against China. Some


Chinese including people in the government had believed it was just


rhetoric, but Donald Trump is a businessman and someone China could


do business with. But as the rhetoric becomes more and more


severe, now he is taking actions, taking calls from Taiwan and nothing


has let up and the Chinese are very cautious and very vigilant and stop


if I look at the media response within China, the response is


becoming tougher as well. China is bracing itself for a trade war and


perhaps even military confrontation with America. And that is it, we


heard from one of the people interviewed in that film but he is


playing with fire, Donald Trump. If it comes to a trade war Howwood


China respond? -- how will China respond? I think they're coming up


with a list of ways to respond in terms of boycotts, and slapping


tariffs on American goods as well. Neither country is going to come out


ahead if this happens. I will say that with China the stakes are not


as severe as the years to be because exports used to be 50% of Chinese


GDP and today more like 20%. And of that 20% the US makes up just about


18% of exports. Solar talk about 4% of the GDP that will be affected if


all exports to the US ceased to exist. Of course that will hurt the


economy but it is not going to hit kill it. And I think the Chinese


prefer to have stability with the US in the whole global economic system,


and that was made clear by the Chinese president. And this is


election year in China and so it behoves them to try to get along


with Donald Trump and try to strike some kind of trade deal. You will


hear in America during the course of the election campaign and you know


American voters, many of them think that the relationship between


America and China has benefited China more than America. They say we


did not get a good deal on North Korea, on trade, and they're quite


happy to see Donald Trump standing up to Beijing, they do not buy the


argument that America could lose out. Certainly there is rhetoric and


risk reality. The rhetoric in the US has been largely one-sided, it has


largely targeted China as the convenient whipping boy in every


presidential election, that China is a currency manipulator, it is unfair


in all these areas. Whereas Americans actually have benefited a


great deal by working with China. China has provided a lot of very


cheap goods to the US so that inflation has remained relatively


low for decades now. And this has also delivered record profits to


lots of US corporations which has taken the US stock market to record


highs. And so a lot of these politicians that like to criticise


what a bad deal they have had they fail to acknowledge that all the


benefits have also accrued as a result. So again we have got to look


at both sides and look at it holistically to understand the


relationship. China is such a different country to when you were


in Tiananmen Square as part of the protest and it is ironic that we


have the country led by the Communist Party which says we can


trade freely with the rest of the world. And the country is supposed


to be the leader of the free market economy pulling up the drawbridge.


China is taking the lead and because China has seen the benefits in the


past 40 years, in its own experience, how global trade can


bring people out of poverty and improve living standards. Especially


with the Asian infrastructure bank in China and China is putting $100


billion into lending, to trade with the world, and this year alone they


had gained 25 new members including Ireland and Canada. China is taking


up the role of the leader in global trade. In fact if you look at the


China US relationship, from the Chinese perspective, China did not


have a growing relationship with the Obama administration either. And his


two big initiatives, it was very much a military constraining


exercise against China and the Pacific trade pact was designed to


exclude China, contain its influence in trade in the Pacific region. So


China in some ways are looking at the Donald Trump administration and


having had conversations with the Trump team and they're looking at


possibilities for example, Trump is having a soft view on perhaps


joining the Asian infrastructure bank as a member. And so they see


opportunities here. And they are also ready if Trump is going to


escalate conflict with China. Thank you very much. More of course


throughout the Trump administration on this relationship.


We saw a littler earlier, the car industry chiefs -


the heads of General Motors, Ford and Chrysler -


sharing breakfast with President Trump earlier today.


And you might have heard him saying that he wants a big push on building


Our business correspondent Michelle Fleury is on the floor


How did these bosses who run multi-million pound 's


organisations, how do they respond to being called in by the President


and given a bit of an ear wigging on what they should be doing? Given the


tongue lashing some have received in recent weeks and months, I think


they're inclined to get there and pay attention. You have heard the


kind of repetition from Donald Trump that he wants them to stop producing


cars overseas destined for the American market, and to make them


here. It was a message that he repeated quite forcefully again


today saying he wants them to build plants and create jobs here in


America and of course he focused on the US car industry in part because


it is seen as a symbol for American manufacturing and of course that is


at the heart of one of the key economic planks of Donald Trump,


trying to bring back jobs and restore manufacturing. Thank you for


that. We will be watching


the car industry closely. A key indicator perhaps of how


effective Donald Trump Before we go don't forget I'll be


on Facebook Live straight after the programme,


answering your questions.
