Hello, I'm Ros Atkins, this is Outside Source.


By the end of the week Donald Trump will be president.


And in an interview he's given with British and German media,


He says Angela Merkel made a mistake letting in so many Syrian refugees.


He's also attacked the EU as a vehicle for Germany.


The President-elect met Martin Luther King's son

eight people have as much wealth as the poorest half


Donald Trump hit some big subjects hard in this interview


Let's get into the areas which have prompted the biggest reactions.


First here's Mr Trump on Angela Merkel.


I have great respect for her. I felt she was a great leader. She made one


catastrophic mistake,. Some people in Germany would argue they have a


reasonable idea of where most people who came into the country in the


last two or three years came from. There has also been a sharp


reaction. We have also heard from Angela Merkel herself. TRANSLATION:


As Europeans we have our feats in our own hands, I will continue to


work for cooperation between the 27 member States. The President elect


made his points a game, when he is in office, which is not at the


moment, we will of course work with the American Government, then we


will see what cooperation we can achieve. And the president of France


has said this. And perhaps he is speaking with the


freedom of a man who is not standing for the election, he will not be


president for more than a few months longer. Whatever you think of Donald


Trump, you would not call him diplomatic in the way he talks of


other countries and other leaders. Here is our diplomatic


correspondent. There is a stream of consciousness about three Donald


Trump talks. He goes from subject to subject. His language and the


language chosen by Angela Merkel, very different. The President elect


talks about, all those illegals, he does not make any distinctions


between genuine refugees, economic migrants, and those who may be


seeking a better life, maybe radicals, criminals, the German


Chancellor was clear to make that differentiation. She said it is


important to recognise that many of the refugees who have come from


Syria were fleeing persecution, particularly persecution by


President Assad and many jihadist. She is in a sense saying you have to


be more nuanced and what you are saying. It is striking that she said


the future of Europe is in our hands, perhaps not with America by


our side in the way it has been since 1945. She was trying to echo


the call from France as well for European unity in the face of what


they see as particularly dangerous times. After all Donald Trump was


predicting the collapse of the entire European Union. Obviously be


a more fractious, difficult relationship with Washington than


they have been used to, but she was trying to avoid picking a fight with


them, at least before he takes office. I want to talk to you know


about Nato. This is what Donald Trump said. It was designed many


years ago. Some US media, that phrase obsolete as the thing they


have picked out of this interview. That is right, because although he


said war -- although he said was obsolete, he also said is obsolete,


present tense, he seems to have moderated his position towards Nato


in recent weeks, no back to a fairly hard line that out of date, not


sticking on terrorism the way it should. Interesting that the


Chancellor, we do not know whether she approved that, but German


Foreign Minister countered by saying that the President-elect was


contradicting what his own nominee for Defence Secretary had said in


his confirmation hearings at the end of last week. The Germans are


pointing out that even the incoming administration does not seem to be


able to agree internally on what is position on Nato is. The diplomacy


is built on structures that have been developed over often decades.


How quickly can all structures be undermined if a leader decides to


take a quite different tack? Of course they can be threatened, if


not necessarily undermine, if somebody comes and who does not play


by the conventional rules. But I think diplomats, seasoned ministers,


would argue, but actually they may be able to draw Donald Trump into


their way of working. The head of the Spanish diplomatic service said


today that it will give the new American president time to learn


about the European Union and Nato from the inside, slightly


patronising. Not many people have managed to exert much influence, he


is very much his own man. His nomination -- his inauguration is on


Friday. He was positive about Brexit. He was positive about cheap


deals. We will get to that in detail in 20 minutes. -- positive about


trade deals. A Turkish Boeing 747


cargo plane has crashed 33 people on the ground were killed


- as were all four crew members. The plane was en route


from Hong Kong to Istanbul and was due to make a refuelling


stop just north of the The problems came as it


tried to land in fog. And the plane crashed at around 7:30


in the morning local time. Here's BBC Kyrgyz' Gulnara


Kasmambetov with more details. If you imagine that from a small


village of 350 households, 20 houses were hit, and that many people died


in one morning, it is a heartbreaking story. A small


schoolboy just leaving his house, just to look back and see how his


entire house was destroyed. That is quite devastating for a nation with


a 6 million population. This airport would normally receive


747s all the time? Normally. It was a frosty morning,


nevertheless those aircraft landed, however this aircraft attempted to


land once, could not land, and attempted to rise up, but it hit one


of the buildings of the airport and then crashed down.


Now a new development in an astonishing story you may have seen


over the weekend. A teenager who was snatched


from a hospital in Florida hours after she'd been born,


has been reunited with She's 18 now and was tracked


down after a tip-off. The woman she thought


was her real mother has been For the last 18 years Kamiyah Mobley


had no reason to think that Gloria wasn't her real mother and no reason


to think that her own name wasn't really Alexis,


but now she is trying to deal with the news that the person


she thought was her mother for all that time is under arrest


charged with kidnapping her, just after she was born,


and giving her a false identity. 51-year-old Gloria Williams


is being held in South Carolina after DNA tests proved that Alexis


was baby Kamiyah, snatched Police say she posed as a nurse


and snuck the newborn out of the hospital,


starting a frantic search. At the time her real


mother was distraught I just want to know


where my baby is. But now, 18 years later,


she was delighted to be reunited with her the daughter she never


thought she would see again. And Kamiyah's biological father


was overwhelmed after meeting It's hard to put it


in words right now. It's hard to deal with this right


now, you know what I'm saying? We're just, like we say,


we are trying to process it. But the man who thought


he was her father all this time That's the name I have


for years, Alexis Kelly. She said, since this was going on,


Friday, "Dad, I love you." That is not going to change,


that she is the love of my life. Now it is Kamiyah who has to come


to terms with what has happened, with her new identity,


her new family. We are going to be building up to


the inauguration of Donald Trump as president of America throughout the


week. Our correspondent has been talking


to voters on both sides of the divide about their expectations of


the new president. The Northern Ireland Secretary has


announced that elections will be held in the province following the


collapse of its power-sharing executive. He said it will take


place on March the 2nd. No one should underestimate the challenge


faced to the political institutions here in Northern Ireland, and what


is at stake. While it is inevitable that debate during an election


period will be intense, I would strongly encourage the political


parties to conduct this election with a view to the future of


Northern Ireland, and re-establishing a partnership


Government at the earliest opportunity after that election.


This is essential to the operation of devolved Government. And this


means that all must remain open to dialogue.

Americans are today celebrating Martin Luther King Jr Day -


remembering his role as a civil rights leader.


But the President-elect has come under fire for attacking another


of America's revered civil rights campaigners -


This exchange of views began like this.


More than two dozen Democratic members of Congress say


they will boycott Mr Trump's inauguration because of it.


Things get said on both sides in the heat of emotion. At some point we


have got to move forward. People are literally probably dying. How do we


feed people, who do because people, who do we create the best education


system? Our correspondent is live. That was


a strong comment from the congressmen.


Yes, the congressman John Lewis was talking about not feeling this is a


legitimate incoming president because of Russian interference in


the election, so that is right congressman John Lewis said what he


said on Friday, Donald Trump of course went on his favourite medium


Twitter, because he is so sensitive a few days ahead of this


inauguration about this idea that he is somehow not a legitimate


president because of what the Russians did. And remember he has


only reluctantly accepted that the Russians might have intervened. But


Donald Trump because he is thin-skinned he responded to


congressmen Lewis Comer that Democrats and African Americans see


this as a Twitter war that is happening on the weekend that the


first black president is about to leave office, they see it as


sensitive, Donald Trump's supporters say he is fighting back against


somebody who attacked him so what is legitimate.


So this boycott is because this happened on a certain weekend


because it was directed at this man and because it is not fair? I am


trying to understand the pressure point.


It is a broader picture that many Democrats, many people of colour


feel that Donald Trump is not respectful of struggle, that


Republicans rolled back the voting rights act, and this is something


that Martin Luther King's Son discredited the Donald Trump, that


the rights of minorities and the deans of the civil rights leader


could be under threat from a Donald Trump administration. This is


something that many Democrats and African Americans worry about. This


is a flash point for the wider issues and fears, and after a


bruising and divisive campaign in which Donald Trump said essentially


that inner-city blacks are badly off and final thought for him because


what the Democrats ever do for them, many said that was patronising and


not accurate. And this team up in the exchange with John Lewis -- this


came up in the exchange. It is a misunderstanding that goes back a


long way and has poignancy because this is the weekend that Martin


Luther King, the civil rights icon, that America celebrates his


birthday. Oxfam's making a startling claim


today - that the world's eight richest people have as much wealth


as the poorest half Oxfam based this claim on data


from Forbes and Credit Suisse. This is a very powerful illustration


of an economy that is working incredibly well for the privileged


few but incredibly badly for pretty much everyone else. Look at the


wealth of the bottom half of the planet. There is barely anything


but. It is a quarter of 1% of global wealth between 3.6 billion people.


About well they do not have assets to create a likelihood, you do not


have the ability to respond to a medical bill or a pure harvest. This


puts you in a vulnerable situation, compared to having a lot of wealth,


power and influence, that those at the top do. There has been


criticisms about how Oxfam has done its calculations. The Institute of


economic affairs has said. And that there is not the only


attack on the methodology. The Spectator magazine's editor Fraser


Nelson has said. That is because the Wii Oxfam looked at this, a large


amount of debt is taken away from assets and cash that you may have


and as such some people who may be very wealthy with large debt, can


appear to be cooler than perhaps they are. -- can appear to be less


well off than perhaps they are. From next year, Air India


is reserving six economy class seats A company spokesman says,


"We feel it is our responsibility to enhance comfort level


to female passengers." because in India other modes such as


trains, the Metro, local trains, as well as buses, there has always been


reservations, some seats always reserved for women. But that is


something about an aircraft, perhaps because it is more upmarket, that


something like this is very unusual, and perhaps does not exist.


The domestic airline industry in India, it is booming like never


before, so as it gets bigger, some of the problems seen on other modes


of transport are starting to crossover?


It is true that Indian domestic airline sector has been booming. We


have some cheap and affordable airlines. The traffic is much higher


than it used to be some musical. Having said that, in India in


domestic airlines you cannot serve alcohol. Conversations with air


hostesses in the past, sometimes men can misbehave when they are drunk,


it is interesting that this airline's decision to introduce


plastic handcuffs and reserved seats, is to do with domestic


flights that are shorter, so all the reasoning that was being given in


the past, none of those excuses are valid, and that is why some of the


reaction has been of annoyance. No this report is looking ahead to


Donald Trump's inauguration on Friday.


Milwaukee, known for its harsh winters, for making cheese and beer,


and though for its roll and America's fragile new politics. This


is no place for fragile. Junior ice hockey. This is the Green Bay junior


gamblers. Jonathan is coaching the underlyings. He likes Donald Trump


because he is different, a nonpolitician, an outsider. It goes


back to an alternative that is outside of the box. A different


viewpoint. He is a billionaire, he is not every man. He certainly is


not but I think there is something to be said for him being able to


relate to a plumber, a welder, a teacher. The state of Wisconsin


switched sides in this election. The large white working-class electorate


normally votes Democrat, but this time they chose Donald Trump. They


like giving new things a try here, even if it is risky. Some of


America's top ice athletes practice on this rink. I understood than, but


you are not doing this. Nancy was an Olympian batters know a coach. It is


time to be a little risky. She said Donald Trump can bring a winner 's


mindset to the White House. He makes a decision, he gets it done. Do you


have reservations about what he said about women for example? Everybody


who is the island and has some reservations because they do not but


the truth about that they are hoping that at this point in his life he


has put this behind him. Wisconsin have voted Donald Trump but only by


1%. Some here are still struggling with the result. This is one of the


most important jobs in the world and I am not certain that he is prepared


for it. But this person is willing to give him a chance even though as


a Muslim she is worried by some of his policies. I look on the bright


side. We have two we conceive what happens. You sound like you I may be


a little nervous. Yes, I might be. We heard that a lot here. A desire


to Unite, but an acceptance that that may not be easy.
