The US President sent a blunt message saying, pay for the wall

One side wants the other to pay for it, and the other


The result - Mexico's President is now cancelling a visit


to Washington, after an ultimatum from Donald Trump.


The fight between the US and Mexico over that wall


took an extraordinary twist on Twitter today.


Lets see what Donald Trump wrote. If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the


badly needed wall, it would be better to cancel the upcoming


meeting. And then this riposte from the Mexican president. This morning


we informed the White House that I will not be attending the working


meeting planned for Tuesday with POTUS.


Well just a short time ago, speaking at a Republicans'


retreat in Philadelphia, the so-called city of brotherly


love, President Trump wasn't sending much of it south.


The president of Mexico and myself have agreed to cancel our planned


meeting scheduled for next week. Unless Mexico is going to treat the


United States fairly, with respect, such a meeting would be fruitless,


and I want to go a different route. We have no choice.


For more, let's speak to one of Mr Trump's supporters,


the former Republican Congressman, Bob Walker.


Thank you for joining us. There are fights that some politicians need to


have, and then there are unnecessary ones. Is this one unnecessary? I


think it is the Donald Trump. He enunciated during the campaign that


he was going to build the wall, and he said Mexico was going to pay for


it. The question was, how are they going to pay for it, and that is a


matter for negotiation. He said that the negotiation stance is that this


is not going to go away, Mexico will have to respond in some meaningful


way to the fact that the wall will get built. And you are a veteran of


the transmission period when a new administration is taking place. We


have had a disagreement over torture, what to replace Obamacare


with, differences over what sort of border tax should be imposed. How


would you characterise the way it is going? I think so far they have done


remarkably well. Let's look at what he is doing in these first few days.


He is taking all of the things that he talked about on the campaign


trail, and he is moving quickly to either put legislation in place that


will play out over the next few months, or he is actually issuing


executive orders that are taking effect immediately, so I think he is


doing a pretty good job, and it fascinates me that in many cases


some of the media that are portraying these first few days have


been paying attention to things that are fairly minor compared with the


major things that he is really doing. And I'm not sure whether or


not his strategy isn't to divert attention away from some of the


really big things that he is a cub wishing. Congressman, if I could


take you back to that Twitter message from Donald Trump today,


some of the reaction on social media is that this is no diplomacy by


Twitter. Is it important that the president does this in a more


traditional way? I don't think it is, we are in the 21st-century and


the fact is that we are in an electronic age in which messages are


communicated in business through Twitter. This is not anything that


is unusual. I do think that it is going to have to change in that some


of the complexities of international diplomacy are going to have to enter


into some of the discussions, and you can't do that in 140 characters


or less, so as we proceed forward, I think that Twitter will become a way


of communicating to the American people what his interests are, but


it will not be the substance of the diplomacy. But you will know,


congressman, that messages can be misconstrued on Twitter, and won't


there be some people in Congress thinking it could be President Pena


Nieto of Mexico today, it could be Angela Merkel tomorrow. There will


be people that will have those kinds of concerns, but again, I think that


everybody has do understand that what he's doing is setting the


parameters in which he thinks the negotiations will take place, and


Twitter messages sometimes do that. We saw it on the campaign trail, his


opponents were frustrated by the fact that his tweets dominated the


news media for an entire day, and their messages couldn't get out. My


guess is that he intends to continue that pattern as long as it works for


him. OK, congressman Bob Walker, grateful to you, thank you very much


indeed for being with us. The British Prime Minister will be


the first foreign leader to meet Donald Trump since he became


President. She will be at the


White House tomorrow. Tonight she is in Philadelphia,


where she will be telling Republicans that the US


and an outward-looking UK In Philadelphia at the Republicans'


retreat, Donald Trump today suggested that he would lead


on negotiations over trade I'm meeting with the Prime Minister


tomorrow, as you know, of Great Britain. So I'm meeting with her


tomorrow, I don't have my, as secretary and they want to


trade. So I'll have to handle it trade. So I'll have to handle it


myself. LAUGHTER


Which is OK. Well, the BBC's Laura Trevelyan is in Washington for us.


Going back over Prime Minister is and presidents we have known


throughout the ages, can you think of two more different in terms of


character, personality and all the rest of it than Theresa May and


President Trump? It is a little bit difficult to imagine, but then I


think perhaps Margaret Thatcher and one of Reagan were not an obvious


fit, and Theresa May address this on the plane on the way over in a jokey


way, saying that sometimes opposites attract. But yes, she is


businesslike, low-key, not given to bombast. Donald Trump is the


complete opposite. It would be hard to imagine Theresa May starring in


reality and that is how Donald Trump came to national prominence, and he


used it to run for the presidency. So they are direct opposites, and it


will be fascinated to find out what happens. Wouldn't it be nice to be a


fly on the wall when they how Berdix Jeju gifts, and by the way, the


Prime Minister is going to give the president of Scottish Cup, a symbol


of friendships. Lets go from style to substance. What will be the main


issues that they want to get to grips with? The big issue is that


Britain is about to start the process of leaving the European


Union, and the Prime Minister would like a trade deal with the US. This


also suits Donald Trump, because he wants to show that the big


multilateral trade deals that he doesn't like like Nafta and the


Pacific rim one can be replaced by strong bilateral agreements with


allies. The problem of course with that is that Britain has to leave


the European Union before it can start officially negotiating a trade


deal with the US, so Theresa May has to walk a bit of a fine line, not


really annoying those in the EU by seeing too eager to rush into


negotiation with the US straightaway. And also it is an


opportunity for her to underline Britain's's support for Nato. Trump


Tower said Nato is obsolete, he has questioned the value of it, so it is


an opportunity for her to show that she can have a relationship with the


US wants Britain leaves the EU, but also to stick up for Britain's


principles. Thank you very much, Laura.


Britain and the United States love to talk about their so-called


We've had a dip into the archives to look at some of the most


And historic picture of two great leaders determined to extinguish the


menace of Hitler. He reminded them that his mother was American. If my


father had been American, and my mother British, instead of the other


way around, I might have got here on my own!


In Britain, you will find a ready response, an ally, valiant, staunch


and true. That's exactly right. Thank you. The


thing I want to leave people with the impression of is that ours will


be a strong and good personal relationship. And an alliance that


will stand the test of time. As Laura says the main topic


tomorrow will be the trade deal It can't be signed of course until


the UK officially leaves the EU. One man who will likely be consulted


on the Brexit process, Professor Ted Malloch,


is tipped as the next US He is a professor at the Henley


Business School here in the UK. Thank you for coming to see us. When


is the confirmation call? When will you get the job? After the Secretary


of State is confirmed, then the ambassadors will be named, so we


last few days that we are no longer last few days that we are no longer


at the back of the queue with the rhetoric of President Obama, we are


somewhere near the front. I think you are at the very front, and that


is proved by the visit that will take place tomorrow. That you have


said you think it radio could be done once we are free of the


European Union within 90 days? I talk to people on the Trump team,


and I have talked to be Berlin but ten as well, and if you get the


right people in the right place with the right instructions -- I have


talked to people in number ten as well. It is very like an acquisition


deal, not suggest anyone is acquiring anyone, but if you get


those Forces Together, you can do this quickly, it doesn't have to


take seven years. You will not be the ambassador to the UK but the EU,


and yesterday you were saying it is possible that the single currency


might only have 18 months to live. What are they going to think of you


in Europe? I think that Europe will make its own decision. It's not


something that America will do or undo. In fact, it doesn't have that


much influence over the future of the euro. But I do think that there


are problems as we have seen already on the periphery of the European


continent around that currency. The Senate Majority Leader Mitch


McConnell has been talking today about the special relationship.


Let's have a look at what he was saying. One of the things that will


be explored here is a new relationship with the United


Kingdom. One of our earliest and oldest allies, their changes in the


approach to trade opens up the opportunity to discuss with the


Prime Minister the possibility of a bilateral trade agreement with the


British people. That was Mitch McConnell. I am interested in this.


Is it in America's interests that there is a strong, cohesive European


Union, or would you rather that the EU was a series of nation states


that you dealt with bilaterally? I think that Donald Trump prefers


dealing with countries bilaterally. Certainly America it's off would not


join a supranational organisation, and now the people of written have


made that same determination, it wouldn't surprise me if other people


in Europe make a similar determination. Jon and I...


Excuse me, let me be clear on what that means. Would you be in favour


of the break-up of the EU? I don't think we should favour or disfavour


the break-up of any union, it is a European decision. But Britain has


left, and so, too, might others. So we should be prepared to deal with


those countries bilaterally. I have enjoyed the differences in Europe


whether I have travelled there, whether cuisine, language, culture,


there is very little common language in Europe. Jon and I look at Donald


Trump's tweets quite a lot call as I'm sure so many people do around


the world. What I have noticed is he to eat very late at night, perhaps


at midnight, I don't know if it is him, it could be one of staff, and


then very early in the morning. Is he that kind of guy, is he always up


and full of ideas? Donald Trump is, to use his own language, a


high-energy human being, what you might not know is he only sleeps


four hours a night. So he is a bit like Margaret Thatcher! He is, he


has a lot of go, and I'm told that his responsiveness in the tweet


world is largely to music out that he reads or hears in the early


morning and late at night, so you can probably if you are trying to do


an algorithm on those tweets, look at them in those two different time


zones. I think you may be busy, he will be calling you in the middle of


the night! Just before I let you go, will you base your office in


Brussels or here in London? The US ambassador is to the European Union,


and that is in Brussels. Best of luck with the job when it finally


comes, thank you for coming in to be with us.


Back now to the row that has led to the Mexican visit to America being


cancelled. Senator Amanda Petter is with us. Did President Pena Nieto


make the right decision today? I think he did. A lot of people here


in Mexico felt there were no conditions for a good meeting, for a


meeting of talking and dialogue. I think the position of President


Trump hasn't been the right one. He has said that America will make


America pay for the war, and we don't agree with that. I wonder if


this is a row which suits both Presidents. President Pena Nieto


will look strong at home for standing up to the northern


neighbour, and Donald Trump can say, I'm not giving ground, and still


saying Mexico has to pay for the war. And you both win. I don't think


that will be the final situation. I think that's the condition we have


right now, and of course we here in Mexico need to be very united


regarding the position that we need to have on this new paradigms, that


Donald Trump means for us regarding trade, regarding security, regarding


migration, but we share a border of 300,000... 3000 kilometres, so our


interaction will continue. So I think it is good to have a pace of


time right now, and have things clear. I think Trump has had such a


bad speech against Mexico that we need to give a call and...


I think we have just lost the Senator, which is a shame, because


he was in full flow. We will try to get him back, but for


the moment, we will come away from that.


At the Republican meeting in Philadelphia where Theresa May


will speak later, one of the key policy areas they will discuss


is how and when to repeal the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare


- which has increased the number of Americans covered


by health insurance, though at some cost.


While Obamacare is set to be scrapped by Congress -


possibly as soon as March or April - no one is clear what will replace


it, and this is causing concern for many of the people who rely


In New York City, the home of Donald Trump, it is estimated that 1.6


million people could lose their health coverage of the affordable


care act is repealed. That is one in five of the city's population. Don


Leslie suffers from asthma, sleep apnoea and an injured knee. She


doesn't know what she would do if she lost her Obamacare coverage.


would be a disaster for me. I have would be a disaster for me. I have


to have health care in order to survive. If I don't have that health


care, if he gets rid of it, I'm dead in the water. No doubt, no doubt.


It's not just adults that could lose their coverage, but as many as 4


million children, and doctors are also worried about the pact of


existing treatments being interrupted. We are talking about


millions of people... This doctor says the human consequences of


repeal would be dire. We are talking about people dying? We are talking


about people dying, people suffering. A patient with high blood


pressure who goes without their mitts on for a few months is at


higher risk of stroke or heart attack. And a patient with cancer


who had started treatment, interruption in care would mean that


they are no longer to get the chemotherapy or the radiation


therapy or the surgery that they might need. So from that


perspective, I am very worried about the real consequences of what is


playing out on the national level. Hurling a wrecking ball at Obamacare


is in many ways the easy bit. The problem for the Trump administration


and Republicans on Capitol Hill is what you replace it with. This is an


executive order minimising the economic burden of the affordable


care act... Within hours of taking office with a


flourish of his pen, Donald Trump started rolling back his


predecessor's signature achievement. Without a clear administration plan


yet on the table of what to replace it with.


But on Capitol Hill, Republicans claim they can draft an alternative


that gives more access to more affordable coverage. I don't even


like to use the word replace. I like to think of it as repealing the bar


that is out there now and fixing what's left over and putting new


ideas in place, put some market-driven ideas in place and put


things in place that put patients first. For decades, health care has


been a polarising fault line issue between progressives and


conservatives. Many in the Republican base of been campaigning


for years for the end of Obamacare, but abolition carries political


risks, especially with poorer working class Americans who helped


Donald Trump which Washington. President Trump has been talking


about this in the last hour, but really there is nothing wrong with


looking at a policy if people's bills are starting to rise. But


there are trapdoors here for the president? And from millions of


Americans, there is here that they have gone on to Obamacare, their


premiums have gone up, their cover has gone down, and the first big you


have to pay, the deductible, has gone through the roof. Those people


are unhappy and want to see reform, but if you are one of the 20 million


people who suddenly got health insurance who didn't before, and you


suddenly lose it, what happens to those people? What happens when


story starter wouldn't appear in the newspaper that somebody hadn't been


able to get their treatment that they were previously able to because


they no longer have insurance? That is the danger for the Republicans,


and I think they are acutely aware of it. The other issue is, we will


make it better for the people, but some of the people on Obamacare are


the people who voted for him. Yes, and that is one of the paradoxes. A


lot of people in Kentucky and other places who voted for Donald Trump


stand to lose a huge amount if they lose their Obamacare, and that is


one of the risks that this administration is deeply conscious


of. So, Obamacare in the headlines. Let's look at some of the other key


stories. The British Government here has


paved the way to start the Brexit process.


The bill to allow the government to trigger Article 50 -


that's the formal process for leaving the EU -


was introduced after the Supreme Court ruled that


approval was needed by Members of Parliament.


The former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright says


she'll register as a Muslim if Donald Trump creates a database


She's tweeted "I stand ready to register as Muslim in solidarity".


Her comments come in response to rumours about an executive


order on extreme vetting, a refugee ban, and a ban on arrivals


from seven countries in the Middle East and Africa.


Well, even before the American and Mexican presidents went


toe to toe on Twitter - a former leader really set the tone


And in no uncertain terms, the former Mexican leader


Vincent Fox posted this: "Sean Spicer, I've said this


to @realDonaldTrump and now I'll tell you: Mexico is not going to pay


Is I don't know what that word is, it has been bleeped out. Fabulous


wall? Folding walk! You are watching 100 Days from BBC News.


Coming up on BBC World News and the BBC News Channel in the UK:


the man who threatens to shake up French politics - meet


And almost a week in to his presidency,


we get the assessment of one Trump fan.


Is it only that short? That's all still to come here on 100 Days.


Good evening. It's been bitterly cold for many parts of the country,


and especially under the cloud. This is West Berkshire earlier today. In


East Anglia, the temperature struggled to rise above minus two.


We had some lovely sunshine across the north-west of Wales, look at


that beautiful, sunny skies. As the sun has gone down, the temperatures


are starting to melt away, the wind falling like inland, so a recipe for


widespread frost and mist and fog to return, more so than last night.


These are towns and city temperatures, but in the countryside


lower again, really quite bitter out and about. So, frost on the cars and


potentially because we will see a little drizzle around and some


snowflakes, just a few, there could well be nice on Friday mine's rush.


Some fog, too, particularly on the upper slopes of Wales, across the


Peak District and into parts of Yorkshire. Also parts of


Pembrokeshire. We have some patchy rain gathering towards the west, and


that is the sign of a change taking place during the day, but another


cold start. The setup on Friday is that we have this weather front


coming in, but the wind coming more from the south-east, so it will be


less bitter for most of us, but increasing cloud. It will still feel


cold and grey, for most of us it will still be dry, until later when


the showers Titus takes shape across parts of western Scotland. With it,


the air is mild, up to 10 Celsius by the end of the day. That band of


showers crosses its wake eastwards. Brighter weather replaces it, more


showers coming in on a south-westerly breeze, not


particularly warm, wintry mess over the hills, and this is the question


mark about Sunday, how far north this weather system will come. We


will see some rain in the south, but it looks on balance as if England


and Wales will have some rain and relatively mild air tied in with it.


The best of the brighter weather will be further north, and it will


be less cold and more breezy, but do stay tuned if you have plans this


weekend. Welcome back to 100 Days -


I'm Jon Sopel in Washington. And I'm Christian Fraser in London -


a reminder of our top story... The Mexican President won't be


coming to Washington after Donald Trump's ultimatum -


"If you won't pay for the wall, And coming up, what do Donald Trump


voters think of the President's Well, on Sunday evening,


the ruling Socialists of France will choose their candidate to run


in place of the deeply The second and final


round of the Socialist primaries - the former Prime Minister Manuel


Valls will be fighting it out with a candidate


from the left wing of the party, But the man who is rising fastest


in the polls is a centrist. He has been painting


himself as an alternative Lucy Williamson has


been finding out. For some, he is there a Emmanuel,


there are new political messiah. For others, he is a glossy young banker


with ambition these size of France. Either way, Emmanuel Macron is


getting rock star attention and audiences to match. His movement is


all about a fresh approach to politics, inviting the media into


his new campaign headquarters, for example. A bit of silicon valley in


Paris, where the average age is well under 30. There are bunk for resting


and hand drawn cartoons drawn on the wall. In a few short months, 150,000


members have signed up to his liberal pro-Europe agenda, twice as


many as the governing Socialist party has. Emmanuel Macron was once


a small-town boy who met his future wife at school here. The Midwest is


that she his teacher. TRANSLATION: At school he was


different, he was practically the equal of the teachers, he had an


Olympic level intelligence, faster, everyone knew he would be


exceptional. Emmanuel Macron is presenting


himself as an outsider, an alternative to the political


establishment. But he also graduated from some of France's most


prestigious schools and ended up as Economy Minister the President


Hollande. Only to quit two years later to launch his own presidential


bid. And while some of his former Socialist colleagues are flocking to


support him, others have labelled him an arch manipulator. More spin


than substance. TRANSLATION: Here we are today, three months from the


election and he did not know his position on several important


issues. Europe, education, secularism.


On these issues it is really up in the air.


Still, he is not doing badly for a man fighting his first ever election


campaign. He is a young politician and he is


not part of the political establishment, like others. He is


the only one who speaks about Europe. He is only 40. We expect him


to understand our programme, what we want France to become tomorrow.


French elections, they say, are always one in the centre, not just


by a man from the centre. But with the political landscape you're


shifting in the face of growing disappointment, although that could


change. Lucy Williamson, BBC News, Paris.


If there is one thing that myself and Jon Sopel can speak about, it is


Paris. To back former French correspondence. If Benoit Hamon wins


the Socialist primary at the weekend, really, the socialist can


give up on the centre ground in France, realistically, that must be


good news for Emmanuel Macron. The one thing I think is that for all


the headlines that he is generating, traditional centres do not do well


in France and the other thing, is he related a reformer and is a


anti-establishment? I remember reporting on him when I was in


Paris, he was part of Francois hall on's government. Yes, I do not know


what the collective noun is for so many former Paris correspondent is,


perhaps a flood of them! You are correct, the centre was candidate


when I covered the 2002 election, it was Marine Le Pen father who got to


the second there was a centrist candidate then, he did not do very


well. But I think all the old uncertainties, when you look at the


politics are unfolding in this country and in the UK with Brexit,


who would bet against the centrist candidate who seems to be offering


something different. I think all you can say is that there is a huge


amount of uncertainty. Yes, of course, all eyes on Marine Le Pen.


Yes, absolutely, she is the person that is making love the running and


you cannot help thinking that after the victory of Donald Trump, after


the Brexit vote, the natural thing would be, well, maybe it does Marine


Le Pen. But things are so conjugated in French politics and so


unpredictable that to try to make that prediction at the moment is


very premature indeed. Crucially important, of course, because it


could affect the Brexit negotiations. Let us go back to the


visit of Theresa May, she is in Philadelphia tonight and will speak


about the future trade deal. Yes, the BBC's Michelle Fleury is on the


floor of the New York Stock Exchange. How do business leaders


Villa about a bilateral deal with the UK? I think they are very


excited about the prospect. Here is the thing. The forces that led to


the Brexit vote is similar to the forces that led to the surprise


election victory of Donald Trump. Although that means that both sides


see an opportunity, certainly on the trade front to deepen the special


relationship, the kind and make it more of the commercial relationship.


I have a couple of figures are likely sure you, I will show you


more in the coming weeks, but let's start with this one. This is the


size of trade between the two countries. The US and the UK do on


average about $235 billion in trade between each other, that within


2015. About 3% of US annual trade is with the UK, making the UK the


seventh largest trading partner for the United States. As for the UK,


well, America is its second largest trading partner after the European


Union. But it is the biggest single country in terms of trading partners


if you start breaking down the EU. So the question is, what kind of


deal, what might the contours of the deal looked like and, Jon Sopel,


some people are saying it might mean more free movement between the two


countries for people who might want to work in the US or in the UK.


Others talk about perhaps the lowering of Tardis puther, but they


are already pretty at all. So would this involves more deregulation. So


for the pharmaceutical companies and America they might want more


protection, that could be a negative for the NHS in Britain, the Mr Avery


has always been a disagreement regarding food safety rules between


the two countries, could that be the sort of area? These are thorny


questions which will probably not, in this meeting but I think both


sides will claim a trade surplus, in other words, both think they sell


all -- more goods and services to the other country. That might expect


why Theresa May and Donald Trump believe this is a win win situation


for both side. Thank you for that, Michelle Fleury


on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.


It's been nearly a week since his inauguration as President,


and Donald Trump has set quite a pace.


Twelve executive orders signed, and a raft of new policies set


in train, not to mention a few spats with the media and


What do people who voted for President Trump make


of his first few days in office, are they finally


Let's speak to Denise Galvez from the group Latinas For Trump.


Great to have you with us. And to look back at a pretty hurried few


days. How do you think he has got on? To be honest, I am actually very


happy with the executive orders, a lot of the ones that he has put in


place merely establish offices to look at things and further establish


investigations into things before putting anything into motion. I have


no problem with that, it is what I would have expected of him, knowing


his background and his experience and that he listens to many


different opinions before making a decision. Going through with the


wall, we knew that would happen but that does not mean it will be built


tomorrow. I know that he has been in meetings with agencies and


departments responsible for providing accurate information about


how many miles we need, how long it'll take to build, where the


issues are. He is this information before anything takes place. He will


need to find the funding and that is something we want to happen


immediately in the first few days. I was reading an article in which you


were quoted and someone from the Latino community said that he is


very Latino with the idea that he does things on the spot, like them,


they do not think about it, just get on with it. Well, we are people of


action, I'd ignore the words and rhetoric and just look at he does


and what effect it has on us as a country. I think as of now, he has


done a really good job of putting things into action. I am concerned


with his delivery sometimes. I do not think he is perfect by any


means, I think he lacks polish and hopefully, he will learn that along


the way before he does any damage! But I do agree with him taking


action on a lot of things and putting things in place, to start


changing the way that the world has been going and America has been kind


of abandoned. I believe in America first, I would agree with that. And


so looking at the criminal illegals, establishing an office to look into


that, how many do they have? How does this affect us? There is so


much misinformation from both sides out there. He had decided to


establish an office to look into that and that gives me the


conclusions and findings that should be unbiased, they should be based on


fact. There is so much of that fact being thrown around and alternative


facts and those lovely words are being thrown around in the media.


The truth is that it is based on perception and context, and really,


he does not have a lot of that, he does not have the experience and he


is now putting in place the offices and mechanisms that are needed to


make those decisions and to make important decisions. That, I am


happy about. Briefly, Denise, if you might, do you think he is picking


some unnecessary fights along the way? Yes, I always think that he has


to focus more on listening to what happens, let me put this in place,


then you can go ahead and criticise me. He loves to pick fights with


people who criticise him. He definitely needs to do that and I


come from the background of being a publicist, I think he needs like a


24-hour hold before reacting to any of the criticism he has. I agree


with waiting perhaps 24 hours before reacting via Twitter to some of the


things because I think it really distracts from the positive things


that he's putting in place. Thank you very much indeed.


A little bit of breaking news, the Vice President Mike Pence has said


that it will be a strict constructionist who will be


appointed to the Supreme Court when Donald Trump makes his announcement


next Thursday. Two translations of that, the first one is that it will


be someone who strictly follows the constitution. The second translation


of that is broadly speaking, you can interpret that to mean that it will


be a conservative and someone who is very pro-life and anti-abortion,


which, of course, set a whole argument about social policy for the


future of the United States, ones that Supreme Court appointee is


confirmed. That is it from 100 Days. We are


back next week on Monday. We are back at the same time, same place.
