Hello and welcome to 100 Days Plus...

:00:07.:00:08.

Trump and Macron in Paris, the new friends who couldn't

:00:09.:00:10.

They've got big policy differences but just a few moments ago

:00:11.:00:16.

they were both at pains to stress the similarities.

:00:17.:00:18.

The American President is in France to celebrate 100 years of US forces

:00:19.:00:22.

entering the first world war but it's the battles of today

:00:23.:00:25.

After leading the Brexit charge - Nigel Farage became

:00:26.:00:30.

Trump's favourite Brit - we get his take on the President,

:00:31.:00:33.

The Prime Minister admits to shedding a little tear.

:00:34.:00:38.

Theresa May talks about her reaction to the election result.

:00:39.:00:42.

Is China's new silk road an opportunity or a liability for

:00:43.:00:45.

Today the road takes us to Poland where farmers are looking east -

:00:46.:00:51.

hoping their products can find a new enormous pool of consumers.

:00:52.:00:57.

China could be a big new market for European milk but it is a long

:00:58.:01:01.

and complicated journey to the breakfast table in Beijing.

:01:02.:01:08.

Plus, we're about to sign off for the summer -

:01:09.:01:11.

but not before taking a whip through some of the wilder

:01:12.:01:13.

stories that have shaped the past six months.

:01:14.:01:26.

I am Katty Kay in London, Christian Fraser is sitting next to me.

:01:27.:01:30.

It is Day 175 of the Trump Presidency and it is high time

:01:31.:01:33.

Two others sharing the same stage today Emmanuel

:01:34.:01:38.

It's the fourth time they've met and each time it's a study in body

:01:39.:01:45.

Because, these two men could not be any more different.

:01:46.:01:49.

Mr Macron, the globalist, liberal, the youngest

:01:50.:01:51.

Mr Trump now the oldest American president, nationalist -

:01:52.:01:56.

but on the world stage, nowhere near as popular.

:01:57.:01:59.

There's been eyeballing, peculiar handshakes -

:02:00.:02:02.

and the more serious rift over climate and trade.

:02:03.:02:05.

An hour ago the two men appeared side by side for the press

:02:06.:02:08.

conference and here is what they had to say on the Paris Accord which has

:02:09.:02:12.

TRANSLATION: I disagree about the reading we have

:02:13.:02:19.

of the Paris agreement and we have disagreements about this accord

:02:20.:02:23.

and about the decision made by President Trump.

:02:24.:02:27.

Something could happen with respect to the Paris accord.

:02:28.:02:29.

But we will talk about that over the coming period of time and if it

:02:30.:02:36.

happens that will be wonderful and if it doesn't

:02:37.:02:39.

The president was also was asked about his son's meeting

:02:40.:02:47.

As far as my son is concerned, my son is a wonderful young man.

:02:48.:02:53.

He took a meeting with a Russian lawyer.

:02:54.:02:56.

Not a government lawyer but a Russian lawyer.

:02:57.:03:01.

It was a meeting that went very, very quickly, very fast.

:03:02.:03:08.

Two other people in the room, I guess one of them left almost

:03:09.:03:11.

immediately and the other one was not really focused

:03:12.:03:14.

I do think this - I think from a practical standpoint

:03:15.:03:19.

most people would have taken that meeting.

:03:20.:03:22.

Tomorrow the two men will appear side by side

:03:23.:03:24.

Right now they are about to dine on the second floor

:03:25.:03:29.

of the Eiffel Tower, at Jules Vernes,

:03:30.:03:31.

the famed Michelin star restaurant of Alain Ducasse.

:03:32.:03:34.

They have the restaurant and the view to themselves.

:03:35.:03:41.

A little earlier we spoke to someone, who himself,

:03:42.:03:44.

has dined with Donald Trump, in fact he might even be considered

:03:45.:03:47.

So, Nigel Farage, looking at Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron

:03:48.:03:56.

in Paris, it's hard to think that Emmanuel Macron isn't the more

:03:57.:03:59.

Donald Trump does things differently.

:04:00.:04:02.

He is not a conventional politician or a leader in any way.

:04:03.:04:05.

You only have to follow his Twitter account to know that.

:04:06.:04:08.

But what he is is an agent for change and he is trying to shake

:04:09.:04:12.

They are all looking at Emmanuel Macron as global leader.

:04:13.:04:18.

I thought the speech he gave in Riyadh is very bold and brave,

:04:19.:04:25.

saying directly there, "Drive out of your places of worship

:04:26.:04:28.

He was treated in Poland like a hero, with tens of thousands

:04:29.:04:31.

He may not be the sort of cup of tea that the liberal media go

:04:32.:04:37.

for but actually I think around the world he may be a bit more

:04:38.:04:41.

It gives him a break from what's going on in

:04:42.:04:44.

You have been tweeting your support for Donald Trump Junior.

:04:45.:04:49.

I know you are friends but can you at least see that he has been,

:04:50.:04:52.

in the words of the New York Post, which is a reasonably friendly

:04:53.:04:55.

I have been in elected politics, I have fought national elections,

:04:56.:04:59.

European elections, even a referendum.

:05:00.:05:02.

It's a very bloody, dirty, horrible game.

:05:03.:05:07.

And if someone says to me, "I want to meet you for a cup of tea.

:05:08.:05:11.

I've got some information that will really damage the Remain camp

:05:12.:05:14.

or the leader of a party you're fighting," what do you do?

:05:15.:05:17.

If a Russian had come to you and said, "I had some dirt

:05:18.:05:27.

on Theresa May," wouldn't your antenna just go up a little

:05:28.:05:29.

bit and say, "Hang on, this is an adversary.

:05:30.:05:31.

This is not someone that I should really be dealing with"?

:05:32.:05:38.

When he appeared on Fox News he said looking back on it I would have

:05:39.:05:43.

If I was in that position, to know what I would have done?

:05:44.:05:48.

I would have sent somebody else and then you have got to denability.

:05:49.:05:52.

He invited Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner.

:05:53.:05:56.

And he said he should have done things differently.

:05:57.:05:58.

What comes out of this is a lawyer got into America, having been

:05:59.:06:01.

refused because the Obama administration, so maybe we should

:06:02.:06:03.

put some of the blame back on the Democrats here,

:06:04.:06:06.

This is an attempt to link anyone around Trump to Russia.

:06:07.:06:11.

It has even been written in American newspapers that I am under suspicion

:06:12.:06:14.

All of it is designed to stop Donald Trump getting on with the job

:06:15.:06:21.

of putting his platform into place in America.

:06:22.:06:25.

Let's get back to Paris for a second.

:06:26.:06:30.

You have had dinner with Donald Trump, probably not blue lobster,

:06:31.:06:32.

because that doesn't seem to be the President's favourite.

:06:33.:06:35.

Do you think that Emmanuel Macron can persuade Donald Trump over

:06:36.:06:40.

the course of their blue lobster, that it would be a good idea

:06:41.:06:43.

for the United States to get back into the Paris Accord?

:06:44.:06:46.

I think we all get far too excited about what Paris is.

:06:47.:06:49.

The whole Paris thing is voluntary anyway.

:06:50.:06:50.

It doesn't really add up to a row of beans.

:06:51.:06:53.

That is why he didn't need to pull out of it.

:06:54.:06:57.

He has pulled out of it symbolically because he said to American voters

:06:58.:07:01.

we have got a rotten deal across the whole world

:07:02.:07:03.

When he pulled out, look at his language.

:07:04.:07:08.

What he basically said was give us a bit of a break and we'll come back

:07:09.:07:12.

The idea that Trump is totally isolationist is complete

:07:13.:07:15.

But he does want America to get a better deal.

:07:16.:07:19.

Well, today the government published its repeal bill,

:07:20.:07:25.

the legislation that will transfer EU law onto the British

:07:26.:07:28.

Theresa May called it Brexit's biggest day yet.

:07:29.:07:34.

This is also the day that marks the Prime Minister's

:07:35.:07:36.

But how much longer will she remain in the job?

:07:37.:07:41.

The election was a disaster for the Conservative Prime Minister.

:07:42.:07:44.

I felt I suppose devastated really because, as I say, I knew the

:07:45.:07:51.

campaign wasn't going perfectly but still the messages I was getting

:07:52.:07:55.

from people I was speaking to, but also the comments we were getting

:07:56.:08:00.

back from a lot of people that were being passed on to me

:08:01.:08:03.

were that we were going to get a better result

:08:04.:08:05.

So what does Nigel Farage think of the softer Theresa May.

:08:06.:08:21.

Whatever your politics, whatever you feel about Nigel Farage,

:08:22.:08:25.

Jeremy Corbyn has a lot of personality.

:08:26.:08:30.

The big criticism of Theresa May is she was a bit robotic.

:08:31.:08:33.

Look, she is nothing, she doesn't even exist.

:08:34.:08:43.

I mean, she stands up and gives these speeches.

:08:44.:08:46.

She is humourless, robotic, as you've said, lacks

:08:47.:08:50.

sincerity completely, and for me, the one thing that

:08:51.:08:52.

sums her up is that disastrous fire at Grenfell Tower and she turns up

:08:53.:08:56.

as Prime Minister, shakes the hand of the police

:08:57.:08:58.

chief, shakes the hand of the fire chief, disappears.

:08:59.:09:00.

Doesn't even meet the families affected by it.

:09:01.:09:02.

Goodness me, the king and queen during the war went to the East End

:09:03.:09:05.

of London to visit people who had been bombed.

:09:06.:09:10.

She is too buttoned up and I think she comes across to me

:09:11.:09:15.

She will go which ever way public opinion takes her.

:09:16.:09:19.

Does that worry you when it comes to Brexit?

:09:20.:09:21.

She was asked in the general election, did she as a Remain

:09:22.:09:33.

All she could say was we will carry out the will of the people.

:09:34.:09:37.

I think over the course of the next few months it will become clear

:09:38.:09:41.

that she is not the commanding the support of her own party,

:09:42.:09:44.

I think she will be gone in a few months and I think

:09:45.:09:48.

the Conservative Party absolutely have to have a leader

:09:49.:09:50.

Even if she is gone, it is looking increasingly possible

:09:51.:09:55.

at least that it has come to be a softer Brexit and

:09:56.:09:58.

One year ago would you have thought this was possible?

:09:59.:10:04.

No, I thought we were a democratic country.

:10:05.:10:07.

Its up the political class would, for once, just have to accept

:10:08.:10:10.

that they couldn't have things their own way.

:10:11.:10:12.

It is funny because what has happened is public opinion...

:10:13.:10:14.

But the country does want a soft Brexit.

:10:15.:10:16.

Public opinion, consistently, about 70% of people say however

:10:17.:10:25.

we voted one year ago we want the government simply

:10:26.:10:27.

That includes leaving the single market.

:10:28.:10:30.

It is the political class in the House of Commons and House

:10:31.:10:33.

of Lords that are trying to rally against it.

:10:34.:10:35.

Brexit will happen, I have no doubt at all.

:10:36.:10:37.

But I agree with the basis of the question.

:10:38.:10:39.

I think there will be areas where we concede

:10:40.:10:42.

The Democratic numbers in the house say it has come

:10:43.:10:48.

The Parliamentary numbers worry me very greatly and, yes,

:10:49.:10:53.

I am agreeing with you, I think we are going to get a much

:10:54.:10:57.

softer Brexit than the people voted for which means we are going to be

:10:58.:11:00.

debating this for the next two or three general elections.

:11:01.:11:03.

Are used to follow Nigel Farage around during the big summits and he

:11:04.:11:17.

was like the man with the fork and the two horns they really disliked.

:11:18.:11:25.

You had a seat in Parliament and he only had a bit of support in the

:11:26.:11:28.

country when he started off and yet he carry this idea so far through

:11:29.:11:34.

sheer purser for stash force of personality and whether you like him

:11:35.:11:39.

or not, that is what he did. And this is the challenge Theresa May

:11:40.:11:42.

has to live up to on such a difficult task.

:11:43.:11:58.

The idea of a politician who says what he thinks and bucks the

:11:59.:12:05.

establishment and they represent a different policies but what they had

:12:06.:12:09.

in common was this sense of strong personality and people in this time

:12:10.:12:13.

seem to like that. A softer side Theresa May today, a new immune

:12:14.:12:19.

occasions advisor. Robin Gibson. Jeremy Corbyn was his avuncular

:12:20.:12:25.

campaigner, took risks, the concern in the country will be here is

:12:26.:12:30.

Theresa May on the anniversary and the question is is it too little,

:12:31.:12:36.

too late? I think also there was a problem for a woman politician

:12:37.:12:40.

possibly admitting to moments of weakness and saying she cried as an

:12:41.:12:43.

awkward thing for a woman in politics to have to do and doing it

:12:44.:12:46.

if you do not believe it and do it comfortably gets you away from the

:12:47.:12:47.

idea of being presented. The Paris trip is at least some

:12:48.:12:50.

respite for Mr Trump from the Russian investigation

:12:51.:12:53.

which again has consumed the agenda Yesterday it was very much the focus

:12:54.:12:55.

at the confirmation hearing of Christopher Wray,

:12:56.:12:59.

the man nominated to lead the FBI. One of the early contenders for that

:13:00.:13:01.

job was former US Senator and presidential candidate Joe

:13:02.:13:05.

Lieberman. He now co-chairs No Labels -

:13:06.:13:07.

a group focused on breaking partisan Thank you for joining us. Have you

:13:08.:13:21.

had Donald Trump -- Donald Trump talking about his son Don Junior

:13:22.:13:25.

saying anyone would have taken that meeting with the Russian, you ran

:13:26.:13:31.

for the vice presidency in 2000, would you take a nap meeting? I hope

:13:32.:13:38.

not, I do not think I would have forced to buy do not think anyone

:13:39.:13:41.

would take on such a meeting. Some people would have but in my opinion

:13:42.:13:47.

no one should have. In the heat of the campaign, its summit comes along

:13:48.:13:52.

and says they have real dirt on your opponent, there is a temptation to

:13:53.:13:56.

just go for it but this after all was coming from a foreign government

:13:57.:14:03.

and the e-mail response of Donald Trump junior, I love it really was

:14:04.:14:10.

even know it was a casual e-mail and he had no reason to think it would

:14:11.:14:15.

be globally visible, it creates this sense that he was open to collusion.

:14:16.:14:22.

It is hurtful right now. This perception whatever the facts may

:14:23.:14:26.

turn out, what is interesting as you ran as a Democrat and now an

:14:27.:14:31.

independent, you represent a group called no labels trying to get

:14:32.:14:35.

beyond Spa partisan ship in America but we are living in an age where we

:14:36.:14:39.

have this e-mail chain, it seems black and white what the facts are

:14:40.:14:43.

surrounding this but half the population will see it one way and

:14:44.:14:48.

half the population another fast --? That is the way to often in the

:14:49.:14:53.

country. Honestly there was a lot of smoke here but it is not clear there

:14:54.:14:57.

was a gun. It depends on what follows. We have two congressional

:14:58.:15:06.

investigations, a special prosecutor and a divided public responding in a

:15:07.:15:11.

divided wait almost everything, no labels might seem idealistic awkward

:15:12.:15:15.

exotic but the truth is unless we work together we have Democrats and

:15:16.:15:20.

independents working together to break the gridlock our country is

:15:21.:15:24.

just not going to solve its problems or seize opportunities and the

:15:25.:15:29.

publics attitude towards government will grow in frustration and anger

:15:30.:15:34.

which is part of the reason why Donald Trump was elected. You were

:15:35.:15:41.

in the running for this post of FBI director, Christopher Ray was

:15:42.:15:44.

grilled yesterday by the Senate committee, it is inevitable given

:15:45.:15:48.

the abrupt firing of James Komi and the weight has that the independence

:15:49.:15:52.

of the next director will be a key issue. Yes, it is. Really it is a

:15:53.:16:00.

measure of where we are now that so many of the questions at Christopher

:16:01.:16:06.

Ray's hearing yesterday were directed towards whether he was

:16:07.:16:09.

prepared to essentially say no to the president if there was a

:16:10.:16:14.

political interference. I think he is, frankly after all the brouhaha

:16:15.:16:22.

over James Komi I do not think President Trump will be interfering

:16:23.:16:30.

in the work of the FBI. Christopher Ray is a very capable person and

:16:31.:16:33.

will do a good job directing the FBI. For the balance, a lot of

:16:34.:16:41.

people are saying on the Republican side that anybody in politics would

:16:42.:16:44.

have taken this information had it been presented, they are saying an

:16:45.:16:48.

agent working for the Democrats went to Ukraine and try to find

:16:49.:16:53.

information on the Trump campaign. Isn't that the same thing? I don't

:16:54.:16:59.

know much about that though I heard about it and if it happened it is

:17:00.:17:03.

the same thing and it should not have happened. You have to draw some

:17:04.:17:07.

lines. This is the problem, it is part of the problem that is creating

:17:08.:17:13.

this dysfunction in American government that no labels aims to

:17:14.:17:16.

undercut which is that everything is about party, not enough is about

:17:17.:17:23.

what is right and best for the country and in this case OK, you're

:17:24.:17:29.

in a tough somebody is offering some red meat about your opponent but to

:17:30.:17:36.

take it from Russia which is hostile to America because of its role in

:17:37.:17:45.

Syria and seizing Crimea because of presence of Russian troops and

:17:46.:17:48.

Ukrainian soil, it should have been a no-brainer and this is the big

:17:49.:17:54.

problem we have. How do you draw some lines about what is right and

:17:55.:17:58.

wrong and acceptable or not and how do we get Congress and the president

:17:59.:18:01.

back to working together across party lines? We have a group that we

:18:02.:18:07.

have spawned called the problem solvers caucus, 44 members equally

:18:08.:18:12.

divided between Republicans and Democrats. They will make a

:18:13.:18:17.

difference on tax reform infrastructure and health care

:18:18.:18:22.

reforms. We must leave it there. Thank you.

:18:23.:18:23.

A freedom of information request has revealed that the US state

:18:24.:18:26.

department booked 19 rooms at the new Trump hotel in Vancouver

:18:27.:18:28.

when accompanying members of the Presidents family

:18:29.:18:30.

And the cost of the visit back in February, once Mr Trump

:18:31.:18:35.

was already President, was more than $15,000.

:18:36.:18:40.

It raises an interesting question around the potential

:18:41.:18:43.

conflict of interest here - should tax payers money fund trips

:18:44.:18:46.

that will financially benefit the presidents private company?

:18:47.:18:55.

The White House would say this hotel doesn't actually belong to the Trump

:18:56.:19:03.

family, it is licensed to the Trump family business but the thing is the

:19:04.:19:06.

Trump family business is so tied up with brand and the brand of the

:19:07.:19:10.

Trump name that it is hard to distinguish the two and it is

:19:11.:19:15.

something we had the head of the Essex office resigning because he

:19:16.:19:18.

said he thought there was too much of a conflict of interest. You're

:19:19.:19:25.

meant to see this through, not resign. I looked at the register of

:19:26.:19:30.

members financial interests in the UK to see what the rules are and

:19:31.:19:34.

they say the main purpose of the registers to provide information

:19:35.:19:36.

about any financial interests which a member has or any benefit which he

:19:37.:19:41.

or she receives through his or her actions or words as member of

:19:42.:19:45.

Parliament. If you apply that to what you told us about the State

:19:46.:19:48.

Department going to the Trump hotel, it is a conflict of interest. Even

:19:49.:19:54.

to avoid a conflict of interest or the perception they would have done

:19:55.:19:57.

better staying at the Hilton. Next time took a different hotel.

:19:58.:20:00.

China's most prominent human rights and democracy activist,

:20:01.:20:03.

the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Liu Xiaobo, has died

:20:04.:20:05.

The UN says Liu Xiaobo will continue to be an inspiration

:20:06.:20:09.

for all human rights defenders, despite everything he suffered.

:20:10.:20:13.

He was serving an 11-year sentence for "subversion".

:20:14.:20:16.

The head of the Norwegian Nobel Committee has said "the Chinese

:20:17.:20:19.

government bears a heavy responsibility for his

An American doctor has told the British High Court that a trial

:20:21.:20:26.

therapy in the States could offer a one in ten chance of meaningful

:20:27.:20:29.

improvement to the condition of the terminally ill baby Charlie

:20:30.:20:32.

His parents have returned to court to challenge a ruling

:20:33.:20:37.

which would allow doctors to end the life-supporting

:20:38.:20:39.

treatment he is currently receiving in hospital.

:20:40.:20:44.

China's president has hailed it the 'project of the century' -

:20:45.:20:47.

the plan to build a modern day Silk Road to develop the country

:20:48.:20:50.

It will consist of a huge network of shipping, road and rail links

:20:51.:20:55.

All week, our China editor Carrie Gracie has travelling

:20:56.:21:00.

along the 11,000 kilometre route and today she has made it

:21:01.:21:03.

Poland, where there are questions over whether the opportunity

:21:04.:21:05.

Facing West since the end of the Soviet era but Eastern Europe

:21:06.:21:15.

is becoming a key piece in China's strategic jigsaw.

:21:16.:21:21.

This man and his son would never sell Polish land

:21:22.:21:24.

He explains they're actually trying to expand, hoping to sell dairy

:21:25.:21:34.

products to wealthy Chinese consumers who think

:21:35.:21:38.

China could be a big, new market for European milk

:21:39.:21:46.

but it is a long and convoluted journey from here to

:21:47.:21:49.

It is a journey he wants to risk, as dairy markets shrink in Europe.

:21:50.:22:02.

TRANSLATION: China is a very big and interesting market for us

:22:03.:22:06.

But China's markets are still far from open.

:22:07.:22:19.

And since the global financial crisis, it has mopped up cheap

:22:20.:22:21.

Now China wants to build here and control supply chains,

:22:22.:22:32.

a big idea driven by the state, not the market.

:22:33.:22:37.

Some economists warn that could be risky.

:22:38.:22:41.

When this is a plan by the state agencies and it is going to be

:22:42.:22:45.

implemented by state agencies then my worry is that it is

:22:46.:22:51.

could end up with a huge amount of bad loans.

:22:52.:22:55.

With dozens of countries involved, it could be very, very dangerous.

:22:56.:23:02.

China's plan is already on the assembly line.

:23:03.:23:06.

This Polish factory once made tanks for the Soviet bloc.

:23:07.:23:12.

Now it makes diggers for the Chinese state company that

:23:13.:23:15.

This man hopes China's new Silk Road will turn it around.

:23:16.:23:27.

We don't see the mass of orders yet and we are ready

:23:28.:23:30.

for that and we are waiting for that with patience.

:23:31.:23:34.

So no real difference to the bottom line yet?

:23:35.:23:37.

The customers will have the need for the machines but not yet.

:23:38.:23:45.

Europe's bid for China is still in neutral while China

:23:46.:23:48.

Either digging Europe out of a hole or digging that hole deeper.

:23:49.:24:06.

It has been a really good series, from China to Poland. If you watch

:24:07.:24:15.

this programme a lot, you might think we are good friends, actually

:24:16.:24:22.

you might not! In actual fact, shall be tell them, we met for the first

:24:23.:24:28.

time today and here are the stills. We have evidence. This is outside

:24:29.:24:33.

reception at the BBC. It went rather well. She bought me porridge. The

:24:34.:24:39.

weird thing is I was thinking today, I worked in foreign news the ten

:24:40.:24:43.

years so we have been communicating over the airwaves for ten years from

:24:44.:24:49.

Rome, Cairo and Paris and never met in the same country. It is like a

:24:50.:24:57.

weird internet relationship. I was worried we might meet and it would

:24:58.:25:01.

go terribly wrong and will be better off staying 3000 miles apart but it

:25:02.:25:07.

has been OK. It has been so OK, shall we do it again? We are going

:25:08.:25:12.

to do it again. We're coming back in September, we will have a holiday,

:25:13.:25:16.

have a rest and come back in September and do it some more. In

:25:17.:25:19.

the full assurance there will still be a lot going on in the world for

:25:20.:25:24.

us to cover. We do not know what we will call the programme yet. You

:25:25.:25:26.

might have some good idea. You're watching 100

:25:27.:25:28.

Days Plus from BBC News. It was a crucial battle ground

:25:29.:25:30.

victory for Donald Trump. We'll check in with one

:25:31.:25:36.

of his supporters from And sitting in the studio

:25:37.:25:38.

in Washington is Ron Christie. He'll join us for our

:25:39.:25:44.

final programme. That's still to come on 100

:25:45.:25:48.

Days Plus, from BBC News. The weekend is fast approaching, and

:25:49.:26:12.

the weather is looking a little mixed over the next few days. There

:26:13.:26:17.

is some rain on the way, tonight if you spot of rain, mostly across

:26:18.:26:22.

northern areas of the UK and the rain will be brought by this weather

:26:23.:26:26.

front, a very weak one meaning the damp weather will splash its way

:26:27.:26:30.

through the north briefly, it will not last for long, moving through

:26:31.:26:34.

Scotland at this stage into the lake district around ten or 11 o'clock,

:26:35.:26:39.

three Yorkshire by midnight and to the south of that tonight it is

:26:40.:26:43.

going to be dry. It is also not as cold tonight as it was last night.

:26:44.:26:47.

Last night in northern areas temperatures dipped down to three

:26:48.:26:53.

degrees in rural spots. Tonight, not as fresh. Tomorrow, we started the

:26:54.:26:58.

North, Scotland and Northern Ireland around eight o'clock and it looks

:26:59.:27:00.

absolutely fine, temperatures around 13 or 14

:27:01.:27:18.

degrees, some sunny spells. The overnight patchy rain out in the

:27:19.:27:20.

North Sea so we are in the clear, the dry weather with some

:27:21.:27:22.

fair-weather cloud here and there. More cloudy in East Anglia first

:27:23.:27:25.

thing but that should swiftly clear out into the North Sea. The South

:27:26.:27:28.

first theme, a fine day. A couple of light showers, really brief and

:27:29.:27:30.

fleeting ones, later on in the afternoon however we expect the

:27:31.:27:34.

weather to go downhill a little across the North West so some cloud

:27:35.:27:37.

and rain into Northern Ireland and Scotland. For Wimbledon on Friday,

:27:38.:27:44.

it looks variable amounts of cloud, temperatures around the low 20s.

:27:45.:27:51.

Friday evening, it is looking dry across most of England and Wales but

:27:52.:27:55.

some rain in Belfast, Glasgow, Edinburgh and in the Lake District.

:27:56.:28:01.

Saturday, a line of weather front which will be moving off the

:28:02.:28:04.

Atlantic making a beeline for northern areas of the UK, that the

:28:05.:28:08.

Northwest some rain and Lancashire and into parts of Wales and

:28:09.:28:12.

extensive cloud around during Saturday so a cloudy and muggy and

:28:13.:28:17.

warm day with some rain particularly further north on Saturday. Come

:28:18.:28:21.

Sunday, the rain fizzles out and pushes out into the North Sea and we

:28:22.:28:25.

are left over with warm and cloudy weather across South.

:28:26.:30:05.

Two presidents but two very different men -

:30:06.:30:14.

Emmanuel Macron welcomes Donald Trump to Paris

:30:15.:30:16.

ahead of tomorrow's Bastille Day celebrations.

:30:17.:30:18.

Mr Trump defended his son, Donald Junior, for meeting

:30:19.:30:20.

with a Russian lawyer during the Presidential campaign.

:30:21.:30:24.

Not according to the British politician who's perhaps

:30:25.:30:27.

closest to the White House, Nigel Farage.

:30:28.:30:33.

If someone says to me, I want to meet you for a cup of tea, I have

:30:34.:30:42.

got some information that will damage the Remain camp or of a

:30:43.:30:47.

leader you are fighting, what do you do?

:30:48.:30:54.

Right now Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron are in Paris

:30:55.:30:57.

for a presidential visit full of pomp.

:30:58.:30:59.

The two presidents visited the tomb of Napoleon at Les Invalides

:31:00.:31:02.

Now they're moving on to dinner atop the Eiffel Tower.

:31:03.:31:08.

Being in France removes the President from the Washington

:31:09.:31:10.

bubble - something we do on the programme as well -

:31:11.:31:15.

to give you a flavour of how the rest of the country sees

:31:16.:31:18.

Yesterday we took you to the Republican state of Nebraska.

:31:19.:31:22.

Today - on our last show - we are going to reintroduce

:31:23.:31:25.

you to a Trump supporter we spoke to in our very first week.

:31:26.:31:28.

I think that as of now he has done a really good job of putting things in

:31:29.:31:44.

action. I am a little concerned with his delivery. I don't think he is

:31:45.:31:52.

perfect. I think the wax polish hopefully although not along the way

:31:53.:31:53.

before any damage done. And we can speak to Denise

:31:54.:31:54.

live in Miami now. Six months on how was he doing? I

:31:55.:32:05.

actually think he has been behaving more statesman-like recently,

:32:06.:32:07.

especially with all his visits abroad. I still agree with him and

:32:08.:32:12.

pretty much every move he has made on the international front. I do

:32:13.:32:19.

wish he would focus more now on domestic policy. Obviously tax

:32:20.:32:23.

reform and health care are something that affect us all personally, so to

:32:24.:32:29.

me that is a wind that he needs to have and it should be before August

:32:30.:32:34.

hopefully, so we are still waiting on that, baited breath. You are in

:32:35.:32:38.

an interesting position of course because a lot of Hispanics voted

:32:39.:32:41.

against Mr Trump and don't like what he has been doing on immigration. We

:32:42.:32:47.

hear a lot of concern amongst undocumented immigrants in the

:32:48.:32:51.

United States. What are your Hispanic and Latino friends saying

:32:52.:32:55.

to you? Those of us who supported him from day one always understood

:32:56.:33:01.

that we do have a broken system and we do need to put policies in place,

:33:02.:33:06.

but the priority for us was always enforcement of the laws as they

:33:07.:33:11.

exist and they don't see how anybody can disagree with that. If you start

:33:12.:33:15.

with that as a base and build from there, this rhetoric of wanting to

:33:16.:33:21.

get rid of all immigrants, that was always a false narrative and we know

:33:22.:33:27.

now not to be true, I think we need to focus on enforcing the laws as

:33:28.:33:31.

they exist and then finding a way to grant permanent residency and

:33:32.:33:36.

citizenship to a lot of the people who have been here whether it was

:33:37.:33:38.

students that were born here and have been here for over 18 years now

:33:39.:33:43.

and adults, there has to be for them and so we agree on that front, that

:33:44.:33:49.

was always Mr Trump's plan from day one when he ran. I thought you were

:33:50.:33:56.

just in front of the water there and it was delayed and it has changed to

:33:57.:33:59.

dark. I like what you're doing with the wallpaper behind you. I have

:34:00.:34:09.

nothing to do with that. Tell me this, we pick up on all of what we

:34:10.:34:13.

think in the media are the big themes, the sacking of James Comey,

:34:14.:34:19.

the e-mails of his son, I am quite titillated by it, are you? I am kind

:34:20.:34:27.

of sick of seeing it all, all these conspiracies. I am all for these

:34:28.:34:29.

investigations going forward the way they should but unless there is any

:34:30.:34:33.

real evidence, I wish the media would just focus on things that we

:34:34.:34:39.

really need to know more about like health care reform, things going on

:34:40.:34:42.

behind the scenes in the Senate and Congress but health care. If they

:34:43.:34:49.

don't do health care would that really change things for you? I

:34:50.:34:56.

would definitely be very upset. Not just sit with President Trump, more

:34:57.:35:00.

disappointed in the republicans that are representing us right now in

:35:01.:35:03.

Congress. That is who I would really be upset with. Thank you. Stay in

:35:04.:35:11.

touch. Interesting. Often what we hear is that supporters of Donald

:35:12.:35:14.

Trump are upset with the Republican Party and the media and not the

:35:15.:35:16.

president. One thing we can say with absolute

:35:17.:35:16.

certainty since we've started this It is 175 days since

:35:17.:35:19.

Donald Trump took office. On this show we've made exactly 100

:35:20.:35:23.

programmes, so they tell me. And during that time -

:35:24.:35:26.

if you were wondering - We have covered a great deal of it -

:35:27.:35:29.

so here's a reminder Hello and welcome to 100 days. Our

:35:30.:35:50.

new programme... From this day forward it is going to be only

:35:51.:35:58.

America first. President Trump says his administration will start

:35:59.:36:00.

building a wall on the US border with Mexico within months. No band,

:36:01.:36:08.

no while! There are legal challenges. The introduction of a

:36:09.:36:10.

temporary border and wreak Visa holders of refugees from seven

:36:11.:36:17.

Muslim countries. Sometimes he doesn't let go. Do you remember this

:36:18.:36:23.

one. Just three weeks into the new American administration and already

:36:24.:36:27.

the president has had to sack someone. National security adviser

:36:28.:36:29.

Michael Flynn did speak to the ambassador about sanctions. I think

:36:30.:36:33.

he has been treated unfairly by the media. As I call it the fake media

:36:34.:36:38.

in many cases. Where are you from? BBC. There is another beauty. The

:36:39.:36:45.

British government begins the process of leaving the European

:36:46.:36:49.

Union. This is an historic moment from which there can be no turning

:36:50.:36:55.

back. America's policy as serious as confusing. After the Tomahawks, what

:36:56.:37:00.

now? We agreed that the Government should call a general election. The

:37:01.:37:05.

transition of power is underway in France. Washington is in uproar

:37:06.:37:12.

after the sudden and highly unusual dismissal of the head of the FBI.

:37:13.:37:19.

Manchester is a city in mourning. 22 people killed at a concert. Mr

:37:20.:37:27.

Trump, look at that, the Trump brush off but, the Montenegrin Prime

:37:28.:37:32.

Minister. The United States will would withdraw from the Paris

:37:33.:37:36.

climate accord. It is my judgment I was fired because of the Russia

:37:37.:37:44.

investigation. Will they also tell Russia not to interfere in new

:37:45.:37:49.

selection? The President's Sun releases and that confirm that he

:37:50.:37:52.

did go looking for dirt on Hillary Clinton. 175 days and I am still

:37:53.:38:00.

standing. It was of course the Macedonian Prime Minister but I

:38:01.:38:01.

didn't want pointed out... And here with us throughout it

:38:02.:38:02.

all has been Ron Christie, who worked in the administration

:38:03.:38:04.

of George W Bush. Today he is holding down the fort

:38:05.:38:06.

in Washington for us. I was so jealous of you being in

:38:07.:38:17.

London. I had to come to London. It has been an hour going around this

:38:18.:38:20.

building, take me somewhere else he said. We are 175 days in, you are a

:38:21.:38:26.

Republican, you worked for George W Bush. I was going? I think it is

:38:27.:38:32.

going well now that the president has devoted a lot of his focus to

:38:33.:38:35.

foreign policy. He has a lot of problems here at home. His health

:38:36.:38:39.

care bills and moving anywhere. The tax reform package has stalled. On

:38:40.:38:44.

foreign policy the president thinks he is finding his way, but he has

:38:45.:38:48.

gone to the G20, it didn't go as badly as many here in the United

:38:49.:38:51.

States thought it would and 175 days and I am surprised he is doing all

:38:52.:38:59.

right. I read your piece today on Warsaw. You thought his words speech

:39:00.:39:06.

was his best yet. I think it was important because it talked about

:39:07.:39:10.

the importance of Western civilisation our values, the beacons

:39:11.:39:15.

of democracy and freedom and it was delivered in a historic setting

:39:16.:39:18.

where Pope John Paul II had delivered mass in to a million

:39:19.:39:23.

people and when that speech resonated, freedom and democracy are

:39:24.:39:31.

the cornerstones of who we are in the Western civilisation world. You

:39:32.:39:35.

say it is going well on foreign policy but maybe it is that lawyers

:39:36.:39:39.

had taken his iPhone away and he can tweet any more. I think one of our

:39:40.:39:45.

favourite moments in the 175 days was the tweet that came out of that

:39:46.:39:54.

said, kovfefe. I still don't know what that means. I have been pretty

:39:55.:39:58.

consistent for saying that he needs adult supervision. That means take

:39:59.:40:03.

the Twitter machine with its 140 characters out of his hands. What

:40:04.:40:12.

would I do all day? Along the way we have lost some good people who used

:40:13.:40:16.

to come on here and talk to us. Kurt Volker, the representative to

:40:17.:40:23.

Ukraine. I know you have been topped up but they do have a problem

:40:24.:40:29.

recruiting, this White House. They do. I spoke to an ambassador

:40:30.:40:34.

designate just yesterday who said he had spoken to the president earlier

:40:35.:40:39.

in the day and pressed upon him, Mr President, you need people in your

:40:40.:40:43.

administration not just here at home within embassies around the world so

:40:44.:40:47.

that foreign policy can be a more finely tuned mechanism, to figure

:40:48.:40:51.

out how can we best advance and how can we work America's agenda but

:40:52.:40:56.

around the world and this ambassador said to me the president understands

:40:57.:41:00.

that, he heard the message and that if I got is that we will see a lot

:41:01.:41:03.

more appointments going into the United States Senate within the next

:41:04.:41:07.

few weeks. Stay with us in the future. Don't vote the White House.

:41:08.:41:16.

I would -- don't go to the White House. It is the tradition in

:41:17.:41:28.

America to bring it gets. I have something for you. You have been on

:41:29.:41:31.

the cover of Time magazine a few times... Look at that! Christian

:41:32.:41:40.

Fraser, TV's high-quality anchor. Why not very high quality? It was

:41:41.:41:47.

time you had your own cover. That is going on the wall of my golf club. I

:41:48.:41:51.

have also come bearing a gift because you can be the anchor of a

:41:52.:41:56.

TV show about Donald Trump and not have and make America a great again

:41:57.:42:07.

had. It is a very high hat. Take it off, we can't have that the rest of

:42:08.:42:11.

the programme. There has been so much going on the world. The premise

:42:12.:42:15.

of this programme was to cover things on both sides of the Atlantic

:42:16.:42:18.

and it is still a very busy time. We will take a break over summer as we

:42:19.:42:22.

said earlier and we need a break, but we will come back in September,

:42:23.:42:27.

at this time slot and we hope you will all come back and join us again

:42:28.:42:31.

for whatever we call this programme, because one thing we know if it is

:42:32.:42:34.

going do you busy and there will be busy and all been lots of news to

:42:35.:42:39.

cover. You can come to Washington any time but she can't meet Ron.

:42:40.:42:44.

Some things I have to keep to myself. We will keep you informed

:42:45.:42:50.

about Brexit, Trump, where the rest of the populist movement goes. We

:42:51.:42:54.

might even take the programme to Mexico, China, if our bosses let us.

:42:55.:42:57.

For the moment thanks for joining us.

:42:58.:43:08.
