Is the President on the verge of a nervous breakdown?


Tomorrow they will say, "Donald Trump rants


I'm not ranting and raving, I'm just telling you you're dishonest people.


I love this, I'm having a good time doing it.


Tomorrow the headlines are going to be, "Donald Trump rants and raves".


There was an extraordinary press conference this evening -


it sounded a bit like ranting and raving, as President Trump tried


to show his administration is on the right track.


Politically, it would be unpopular for a politician to make a deal.


I can't believe I'm saying I'm a politician, but I guess


We'll ask if it was strange as it looked, or if this is just


Then, at the other extreme, there is the Theresa May


approach to communication - not to have any.


We'll ask if that looks business-like, or simply leaves


The acclaimed and Oscar-nominated film Moonlight.


We speak to the man who wrote the story.


We all know that President Trump's way of communicating breaks


80 minutes of press conference that, at times came across as a bit


There were, buried within, some substantive messages.


He said his administration is a fine-tuned machine,


the travel ban was introduced smoothly, he knows of no contact


Also, he's achieved a lot for jobs and security.


But the core was not all that, it was him lashing out at the press,


fake news, the leaks, judges, the Democrats, the state


of the world that he inherited, and the press some more.


I'm not sure how well short sound bites capture it,


Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States. I'm here today


to update the American people on the incredible progress that has been


made in the last four weeks, since my inauguration. The press has


become so dishonest that if we don't talk about it, we are doing a


tremendous disservice to the American people. I turn on the TV,


open newspapers and see stories chaos. Chaos. Yet it is the exact


opposite. This administration is running like a fine tuned machine.


President Putin called me up, very nicely, to congratulate me on


winning the election. He then called me up extremely nicely to


congratulate me on the inauguration, which was terrific. And the leaks


are absolutely real. The news is fake, because so much of the news is


fake. But I'm having a good time. Tomorrow they will say, Donald Trump


rants and raves at the press. I'm not ranting and raving, I'm just


telling you, your dishonest people. But I'm not ranting and raving. I'm


having a good time doing it. Tomorrow the headlines are going to


be, Donald Trump rants and raves. I'm not ranting and raving. We had


Hillary Clinton give Russia 20% of the uranium in our country. You know


what uranium is, right? It's a thing called nuclear weapons and other


things, like lots of things are done with uranium, including some bad


things. Politically, it would be unpopular for a politician to make a


deal. I can't believe I'm saying I'm a politician, I guess that's what I


am now. There have been reports that 48 bomb threats have been made


against Jewish centres across the country in the last couple of weeks.


There are people that are committing anti-Semitic acts... He said he was


going to ask a simple, easy question and it's not. Not a simple question,


not a fair question. Sit down, I don't understand the rest of your


question. Here is the story, guys. I am the least anti-Semitic person you


have seen in your entire life. We lived in a divided nation and I am


going to cry, I will do everything within my power to fix that. That I


am going to try. I want to thank everybody very much, it is a great


honour to be with you. Now one thing he did -


a little strange in itself - was hark back to his election


victory, incorrectly saying his electoral college win had


been bigger than his four People came out and voted


like they've never seen before. I guess it was the biggest electoral


college win since Ronald Reagan. And this was how he responded


when challenged. President Obama 322,


George HW Bush 426, I was given that


information, I don't know. I guess my question is,


why should Americans trust you when you accuse the information


they receive of being fake, when you're providing


information that's... I don't know, I was


given that information. Actually, I've seen that


information around. It was strangely ill-disciplined,


with numerous exchanges of insults with journalists,


and the characteristic Icy -- I see the word tone, the


tone, I'm not a bad person, the tone is such hatred. Joining me is a


correspondent with CNN, a news organisation that has been the


target of some of Donald Trump pleb criticism. Brian, thank you for


joining us. What do you think Donald Trump is trying to achieve with


these attacks on CNN and the press? He is playing his heads, going back


to his greatest heads. This is something he did a lot during the


primary campaign. It worked quite well for him. He would be jousting


with journalists, sometimes bullying them in ways we saw again today. We


are going to see him on Saturday trying another one of his greatest


hits, a campaign style rally, going to Florida with thousands of people


around him. He said today the crowd would be massive. He seems to


already expect a big audience. He's going back to what worked for him


when he was campaigning, not necessarily changing to a governing


style. His attempt today was to distract and deflect. He was trying


to say, the story is about how bad you are in the media, it is about


the people leaking, illegally undermining me. I don't think that


worked. There were a number of journalists asking very important


questions about Russia and other subjects. There was a lot of news,


as you are showing, and some commentators in the US are calling


him unhinged. Fox's Shep Smith said it was crazy, CNN saying it was


unhinged. You are not feeling intimidated? Is there anything he


could do to CNN to shut you up or tame what he perceives as the unfair


press he gets? That is an important question. The relationship between


the press corps and the President is governed by norms, not laws.


Journalists are reporting from the West Wing, standing on his lawn,


doing live shots. Not because they are acquired legally, but because


the President allows it. It has been custom for decades. Right now, there


is no indication those norms and customs are changing. The President


did call CNN and other outlets today. He seemed to enjoy the verbal


combat. Maybe we will see him do press conferences more often. There


are concerns about chilling effects from the daily drumbeat, calling the


news media fake, the CNN, the New York Times, he continues, on a daily


basis, to try to destabilise and delegitimise the American media. A


lot of viewers, even some that voted for Trump, that is troubling.


Answering questions, mostly words, not actions. I see journalists


clearly, standing up straight, covering the biggest story in the


world and not being intimidated. How many people out there, in the


public, believe him when he says you and the New York Times are fake


news? That a very interesting question also. If you look at the


polls, we know the trust in media is low. But trust in Trump is also low.


The ratings and traffic to news websites, including the BBC and CNN,


it is sky-high. The public is very interested in knowing the truth


about what Trump was doing, by accessing fact checks for what he is


saying. There are issues with trust. I would go back to the President's


own polls. He tried to cite an outlier poll that is favourable, one


that leans Republican. Most of them, Gallup, from other organisations,


they show the President with a 40% approval rating, very much under


water in a very difficult situation. He has his base with him, there is


no doubt about that. But he's not gaining support from the majority of


the American people. When you hear him lashing out at the media, what


he is really lashing out about is his unpopularity. You will know, as


we know here, the news flow is very fast at the moment and very intense.


I just wonder how far he can keep this up and how far you guys can


keep this up over the next four years. It's a good thing 24 hour


news was invented 35 years ago, between television, radio and the


web, we are seeing constant coverage of the President. I see a very big


appetite on the part of the public for this coverage, including full


very tough coverage that hold him accountable. That is why today was


important, he was answering questions from the BBC, ABC, CNN.


Big news outlets that had not received questions in recent weeks.


That was crucial, we should give the President's credit for doing that,


even though it is a basic part of the job. When he is going to Florida


again, holding that rally, I am sure there will be a lot of news there as


well. He has been taking weekends off, going golfing. They have given


journalists a brief break from the news.


We're joined by Sebastian Gorka, Deputy Assistant to President Trump.


Very good evening. Do you think his press conference was a bit unhinged?


I think it is pathetic that the BBC would use words of that nature and


also the objective weird. It is only weird to journalists like yourself


who are biased. Brian is your authority? This is a man who was


called ridiculous for his obsession for attacking President Trump by his


CNN colleague. I would ask you to Google his name, fake news Delta


Airlines. It was a fabulous press conference. Can I just ask a couple


of factual questions? For his initial words, which went on for


quite a few minutes, had he made notes on that and prepared that, or


did he just go in and busk it? He is fabulous on his feet, he doesn't


need to. This is the man who, in any one day, would go to nine different


sites, sometimes in four different states. He doesn't need an autocue.


He revels in this. What we saw today was the old Donald Trump from the


campaign trail. It was fabulous. Did he game some questions with his


team, did he think, what questions are we going to get, what is the


answer? Or he just said, I'm going to go out there, confront these guys


and give them hell? The President doesn't need to. He has a whole


press team. We have amazing people that write talking points. I had


talking points for this interview, don't need to use them but the team


writes them. He made this claim, completely false claim, about his


electoral college win being the biggest since Ronald Reagan. It


turned out Clinton, George Bush and Barack Obama had bigger wins. I'm


interested in how some mistake like that creeps in. This is a man that


looks carefully at these things. What was going on? I think you're


getting a little bit obsessed, yourself. If you listen to the tape


you just played, he said I guess I have the largest. It wasn't an


unequivocal statement of fact. The bottom line is that he trounced


Hillary Clinton. It was organisations like CNN, the New York


Times and even the BBC said Clinton is a shoo-in. The Huffington Post


said she had a 92% chance of winning. That is fake news and the


BBC should not be a hostage to it. What is really striking is, and it


was striking in the press conference as well, there is a sort of tendency


to leap back to the election campaign, to bang on about Hillary


Clinton and her weaknesses, the way that you have just gone on about the


way pundits got the election wrong. Does Mr Trump, does President Trump


realise that he won the election, he got fewer votes, he won the


election, he is the President now, for goodness sake. He doesn't have


to keep banging on about Hillary Clinton. He's the President. It


looks almost narcissistic, almost a bit childish to be talking the way


that he does in campaign mode, when he is the leader of the free world.


Only to journalist who don't like him and have an agenda. Is he


looking back? My gosh I have been in this position for less than a month,


we have done more work in one month than the prior administration did in


six. The number of things we have achieved, whether with the coal


miners, pushing back on the anti-coal mining policies of


administration and the immigration reform and the modernisation of


infrastructure planning. It is incredible the amount of work we


have done and to say that we are basking in a former glory, please be


a bit more factual or you will be accused of fake news. So you agree


with President Trump that his White House is a fine-tuned machine and


operating well? I have never worked at this rarified strategic level


before, I'm a political appointment. It is incredible I come into work


every morning at 7 o'clock, open the newspapers and when I read a story


that bares no resemblance to the issue I was involved in, I was in


the room the day before when it was being settled, eight out of nine


times it is fabricated. I'm sad to say that you and your colleagues


have fallen into this trap of fake news. It is not fake news, we are


trying to understand what is going on, we are not making factual claims


a lot of time, we are asking questions that you don't like. No


not at all, ask away. Well why did Donald Trump say he knew nothing


about Michael Flynn having spoken to the Russian about sanctions and then


on Monday we learn that President Trump had known about it for a


couple of, more than a couple of weeks? You're obsessing on issues


that are not point. I'm asking a perfectly simple question, I have


asked it once, why did he say I know nothing about that and then on


Monday we hear he had known about it it for two weeks. Why did he say


that. It is a fine-tuned machine you said. I said the White House is


working as a fine tuned machine. Your question was about the


representation of it being a maelstrom in the White House and I


answered it factually based on my experience. There isn't any disorder


or chaos. Some people in the media would like there to be. But there


isn't, I'm in the building. What the president knew when, please ask him


when you have an opportunity. I sure you have a BBC correspondent, I


wasn't in that meeting with general Flynn. Let me ask you about foreign


policy, this is a fine-tuned machine, the president said


yesterday he was opened minded on solutions to the issue of Israel and


Palestine. Today your ambassador at the UN clarified to colleagues and


others there that the two state policy remained the US objective,


why is there this constant confusion between the president speaks,


someone has to go around with a bucket and a shovel picking up the


pieces to clarify to the allies what is going on? Your representation is


just wishful thinking. If you zint didn't have an agenda-driven


question list, well, read the transcript of what the president


said after the meeting with the Prime Minister. It was unequivocal.


We remain committed to our ally Israel and any solution will have to


be a solution that both sides come to. We are not going to intervene.


You need to stick to the facts. The fact is other people, not just me,


other people, were confused and reported, not because they have an


agenda, that there was a change in US policy. Nicky Hailey felt it


necessary to clarify. Why are these kind of mistakes being made. Before


you answer that, another one today, Rex Tillerson was in a meeting with


the French and they said they thought your policy was to tear up


the Tehran deal. Rex Tillerson said I didn't say that. It gives a


picture of shambles in which people are having to correct or


mis-statements or things that have been misunderstood. Is it everybody


else's fault and not your own No there is an agenda driven


distortion. The media accused us of being anti-Semitic and white sue


preppist and we have an orthodox Jew key to the decision making process


and you talk about anti-Semitism. We are not going to stand for it. Where


does the BBC or the New York times said it is an anti-Semitic regime.


Look at the... That is quite different to say. Tlanchts. That was


the response, that we didn't use the world Jewish holocaust. It is


absurd. When I... When the president says he hates the press... It is


true. I never said anything on those terms, I don't want to get drawn


into a Tex eventual argument. Gods forbid you would agree. When he says


the press is out of control and you stand there and for most of your


answers just say we have an agenda and we are fake news. Prove it.


You're using Brian setter. Is it the case you plan no action against the


press, the press will carry on and do its job and be allowed to do its


job, are there measures your intending to take. This is fake


news. You have committed fake news. You're implying that there is some


dread intent. It is absurd. What are you positing? I'm asking if the


president has actions in mind, he said it is out of control, we need


to talk about this and he hinted that he he wasn't going to put up.


That might mean I will communicate with everybody by Twitter or I will


think of things. Is it the latter or the former. I means we are going to


continue to do what we did so very successfully and the thing that put


the former real estate billionaire into and to break your monopoly and


the mainstream media does not monopolise news and we will go


straight to the audience. We are not going to put up with distortion and


people who believe they have a monopoly on the truth because they


have 60 years of a letterhead. We will communicate with our audience.


Thank you for talking to you. We don't like be so much the centre of


attention. Thank very much indeed. A week and a half to the Oscars


and the film that everyone has But let me tell about


a better one than that - not that I've seen La La Land


to make a comparison. It has eight nominations,


including best film, and it In a way it is Boyz in the Hood


meets Brokeback Mountain, but that doesn't begin


to do it justice. It's a three-act film set mainly


in a black neighbourhood of Miami, chronicling the life of Chiron,


from being a gentle child bullied at school to a young adult coming


to terms with his sexuality. It mixes macho brutality,


with genuine tenderness. The film's directed by Barry Jenkins


and is based on a story by Tarrell Alvin McCraney called


'In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue'. They are both up for an Oscar


for Adapted Screenplay. And Tarrell, of course,


is to a large extent that gentle child we meet


in the film. It was based on a lot


of memories, particularly memories of myself and my mother


and my childhood growing There is a lot of me in it,


but I think there is also a lot of When you come to a piece


about self-discovery, it's very difficult


to leave yourself out. So one of the things Barry was very


generous in and very brave in is putting himself


in the film as well. One of the most striking


things about the film is the very tender depiction


of the mentor to the young young Well, one of the things


I like to say he was nurturing and mentoring and he was


a drug dealer, instead of "but", because but tends to dismiss


one part or the other. One of the things I didn't


want to do was portray him as one of the others,


that he was both to me. I think we should


think of all people as And if we want those people


to do more good than bad, then we have to think of them


as human beings, right? My mother's boyfriend,


a man named Blue, was a drug dealer, who was very kind to me


- taught me how to swim, taught me how to ride a bike,


who taught me how to make And you don't think of a drug dealer


being able to do that for a The film of course is,


a lot of it, is dealing And it is very striking,


and it is not just in your film, there are other accounts of young


gay children in underprivileged communities where there


is a particularly strong kind of Well, think about the way


in which the system is And so you say access


to privilege is based on That's the ideal we


share with everybody. Think about the way in which we look


at women in our society. What is the worst


thing I can call you? So that trickles down into all


communities and we think how do we maintain access, how do we get


more privilege, well, the more masculine I am, I mean


I have the means or the money to get


to the privilege of life, but if I'm more


masculine, then I'm closer to the power/access in the way


the society works. So one of the problems is we sort


of keep harping on this idea of masculinity or hyper-masculinity,


or more importantly toxic masculinity, because there


is nothing more wrong with wanting to play sports


or being rough and tumble, but then we honour that


above wanting to be caressed or nurtured or gentle,


then we start creating these So you can have a drug dealer


who drives around in a very macho car, who is also nurturing and also


gentle and also teaches a person So the film didn't, the film wasn't


created to tackle these ideas... It tackles them, because


they are part of life. At some point you have got


to decide for yourself Can't let nobody make


that decision for you. Every interview at


the moment comes back to Trump, is there some


link between that theme that you have explored


in the film and the election


of Donald Trump? Is it that a lot of other low status


people, and you know people who felt basically this man is speaking for


us and he has a kind of masculinity I'm just wondering if there is some


link there between the... The world in which we live


in in terms of misogyny and the oppression of women and the


oppression of feminism, the idea, the xenophobic ideas have been


there for a long time. If anything, this film should


show you that if this stuff was happening to me in my


childhood and I am 36 now, will be 37 this year, that means 20 years


ago we were still wrestling with these same ideas -


that that poverty that existed We talk about films being


a way to escape, to go to another person's


life or experience. And this film allowed


me to do something So we see Trevante Rhodes


as Chiron all grown up and you know he puts on this kind


of masculine facade in order to survive in that world and then


we look in his eyes and we see in that man's eyes that he,


no matter what he does, is always


going to be right there, that vulnerable person


that So no matter how many accolades


that I get, no matter how far I travel from Liberty City,


or if I'm in Stratford-upon-Avon, or in London, or Canada,


no matter where I sort of put myself on a platform or


other people do the same, it doesn't, none of that vulnerability


has left me. Within me and within


the performance of masculinity or femininity that I have


and education I might have, You're up for an Oscar,


I mean the film is up for You have a joint screenplay


one with Barry Jenkins. Are you going to be that vulnerable,


scared child if you win the Oscar? Absolutely, absolutely


and I think that's the thing that is incredible -


I think you're watching two young men from a very difficult part of


world, who are still carrying that world with them and particularly


inside of them go to a place that we never thought


we would get to. We've seen the Donald Trump


communication style this evening. There is something rather intriguing


about how quiet she is. She is the opposite of Donald Trump,


and some of her predecessors, who feel the head of government job


is one that requires you to keep yabbering


on about anything and everything - from policy and politics,


to sport and soap opera. It's not post-truth for Theresa May,


it's post-nothing - stay quiet. We'll reflect on the merits of that


approach, but first here's Chris Cook on the contrast


with the practices of yore. Since July, and the change


of Prime Minister, the Government This week, though, as one Times


reporter put it, they went dark. With Parliament in recess,


the Government went quiet. It really is quite unusual


for a whole government to be And a lot of it is down


to Theresa May's own personal She doesn't regard it as her job


to give people like me things Now, when I put it in those


terms, perhaps you have But here's the big question,


as a political strategy, does it Here is the rationale for feeding


the beast, from a past master. If a story comes out


that says something, and you don't have the capacity


to get on top and say, hang on, the facts are X and Y,


as you have probably discovered, You know, these stories don't take


a life of their own and then start running away into the far distance,


and then the public thinks, my goodness, what are they doing


that for, when you're not doing The current Prime Minister clearly


doesn't feel any great pressure with her current poll lead


to engage very much. She went on the Copeland by-election


trail yesterday in Cumbria, where she spent under three minutes


taking two questions We'll let you get back, thank you


very much. It's a fair bet, then,


that the current PM won't emulate Ted Heath, shown here showing


off his talent as a sailor And here, showing


off his musicianship. Showing hinterland would


mean having cameras in, The May approach, though,


can save you from trivia. Tony Blair, shown here


in opposition, later opined on the jailing of Deirdre Rachid,


a character from Coronation Street. Even David Cameron's tweeting


about British sporting success Maybe this will work,


a low profile may preserve the sheen that attaches


to new prime ministers. But more pressure from other


parties, or events, Right now, the polls


suggest her low-profile We're joined by the broadcaster


and columnist Steve Richards, by Ayesha Hazarika who was a special


advisor to both Ed Miliband and Harriet Harman and by


Matt Chorley from the Times. He was the Times journalists that


used the phrase going dark. Is it a pain that you go and don't get


stories from her? It was recess, journalists were left to their own


devices. It does seem to be working. Every time a journalist says give us


a story, otherwise it is going to be bad for you, this lack of media


coverage, they say, do you want to look at our latest poll ratings?


They think it is working for now. How different is it your days? Very


different. It's interesting seeing Tony Blair popping up. I think New


Labour, in the to 97, when we first got into power, we set the rule book


in terms of professionalised media publications. We set up a grid and


everybody was obsessed. What is this grid? It is the seven days mapped


out and you have to have events in it. We would have grid meetings, a


grid manager. A lot of job creation is generated by the grid. To quote


Tony Blair, I think there is a third way in all of this. You don't want


to become so obsessed with the grid wagging the tail. You need some


thinking time to populate it. Matt, is there no grid? There is, the


rulers don't put anything on it! That is the difference. -- the rule


is. You speak to govern and advisers, they say we would love to


do stuff, we are trying to get stuff on the grid. So Number 10 is saying


not to? They say why rock the boat? The risk, putting a minister on TV,


is that they say something that generates news. Or just to say


something! Steve, you have been around a while and written about


Prime Minister is, is it the right thing to do?


Depends partly on context and partly the personality of the individual.


With new Labour, they suffered such a terrible press in the 80s, the


early 1990s, certainly the New Labour generation were totally


obsessed, partly justifiably, partly to the point where it becomes


stifling. What are we going to say about Coronation Street? They were


in a complete... I was once having a cup of tea with Tony Blair, early in


his first term, 40 points ahead in the polls, William Hague already


doomed as Leader of the Opposition. Someone rushed in from the press


team saying William Hague is going to say something about hybridisation


of rural post offices. What are we going to do? What is the message?


Anyone would think they were about to collapse as a government. That


becomes stifling. Here approach is interesting. She is much more shy


than Tony Blair and David Cameron. It is quite interesting, in such a


public position. Her media performances, I think they are


authentically awkward because she is shy. She doesn't enjoy them. Cameron


and Tony Blair, on the whole, enjoy them. It is partly her own


reticence. She can get away with this with opinion poll leads and an


opposition in disarray. But there will be times when it becomes an


issue for her. No doubt. The problem is the vacuum. You've got to write


something. There is an e-mail you send out every morning, you have to


feel that with something. If she is not giving you something, you can be


mischievous? We have seen business rate rises, they have been planned


for some time. This week, it is on the front pages again. Tomorrow as


well, a big rise is coming, it's affecting pubs that people love,


hospitals that people love. That feels like, this week, because it


has been recess, the government hasn't been doing anything, business


rates has taken on a life of its own and it will probably mean that the


Chancellor will have to do something about it. It had a prominence


because there has not been anything else? At the moment, because the


opposition is so weak, also because there is the destruction of Brexit


and also when Trump wakes up in the morning and hits the tweet deck, the


danger for the Government and the press operation, I think they can be


quite complacent about it now, but they shouldn't forget that there is


lots of domestic crises bubbling up. The NHS, business rates, cuts in


school budgets. There are things that the public are getting


exercised about. Just having a press strategy that stonewalled everything


is not going to be sustainable for a long time. In a way, at this point,


it is quite sensible. One Brexit, people were saying, what is her


plan? The Economist at the front page of there being no plan. She did


a speech. I disagreed with some of the content, but it was almost a


work of art that they had worked and sweated over for a long period, but


quite an effective way of doing things. Wait and then deliver. You


can't do it when you are in control of party and government as she is at


the moment, it becomes harder when you lose control, which will happen


to her at some point. I have just been doing some talks for the BBC


about six prime ministers, what I have learned us I ad-libbed my way


through these talks is that the ones that lasted longest work, one way or


another, teachers. They regarded part of their role as to constantly


mimic it. Thatcher was an instinctive teacher, always


communicating simple messages as a matter of human course, almost. Tony


Blair to this as well. Maybe the story of 2016-17 is that


the New Labour spin model was completely bust come on two sides of


the Atlantic you have two contrasting new models. Trump has


broken all of the rules of the old spin model, and Theresa May is


breaking them. If you sat back and asked yourself, which of the new


models do you prefer, which would you say? I think you are right.


Journalists like to be given stories. Some politicians like to be


in newspapers. The danger is that we think a of stories in newspapers


about politicians is what the public want. Actually, I the reaction to


the spin culture, which people got more and more fed up with, is they


quite like not seeing the Prime Minister on the TV every night,


saying what they think about every passing thing going. You slip into a


danger, as a politician, if you think success is measured by how


many splashes you get, having worked for lots of politicians, the biggest


thing is sometimes, why am I not in the newspapers? You need the


balance, a good example was the Brexit speech that she did, doing


less, but doing it better. So, having the time to properly think


through your message, your policy, your strategy and communications,


that should be the icing on the cake. When everything is driven,


when the grid gets out of control and you are just trying to keep up


with the grid, that is very scary. Imagine Trump's spin doctor tonight,


if the focus was on message discipline! I think they have moved


on from that one. That is all we have time for. Kirsty will be back


here tomorrow. Have a good night. Hello. A cold night in Scotland on
