work that Republicans are doing as being blessed by affinity. We will

:00:00.:00:00.

go through some of the latest developments in the hour. But first,

:00:00.:00:07.

let's turn to what Theresa May has been saying and bring in Laura

:00:08.:00:15.

Trevelyan from Washington, DC. The Prime Minister's spoke about the

:00:16.:00:21.

efforts to place on the nation state but also the importance of being an

:00:22.:00:27.

internationalist. Yes, she was walking quite the tightrope there.

:00:28.:00:31.

She acknowledged great change had been made in both countries with the

:00:32.:00:36.

Brexit vote in Britain and the election of Donald Trump here, and

:00:37.:00:39.

she was making a plea for the continued importance of

:00:40.:00:43.

internationalism. I was very struck by the way she gently reminded her

:00:44.:00:49.

Republican audience, and by association Donald Trump, that it

:00:50.:00:52.

was Britain and America at the end of the Second World War that created

:00:53.:00:56.

the United Nations, that helped create Nato, the underpinning of the

:00:57.:01:01.

global Alliance. President Trump has been rude about both of them. She

:01:02.:01:07.

was pointing out that these institutions, although they may be

:01:08.:01:11.

imperfect, they can be reformed. But this is the basis of what has been

:01:12.:01:16.

our world order. I was struck by the line that our two countries have a

:01:17.:01:21.

joint responsibility to lead, because when other step up as we

:01:22.:01:25.

step back, it is bad for America, Britain and the world. It was a

:01:26.:01:30.

believer joint leadership in uncertain times. There were a couple

:01:31.:01:37.

of other phrases. The Prime Minister said we will rediscover our

:01:38.:01:39.

confidence together and we will lead together again. Both suggest that in

:01:40.:01:43.

different ways these countries have not been at the peak of their powers

:01:44.:01:48.

in recent times? Right, and I also took that to mean that as President

:01:49.:01:53.

Trump is outlining his America first policy, which many have read as a

:01:54.:01:57.

retreat from American leadership and the world, and America looking

:01:58.:02:02.

inward, and as President Trump has said, focusing on ending what he

:02:03.:02:06.

calls the American carnage of the rust belt, of where factories like

:02:07.:02:13.

shuttered and so on and so forth, but Theresa May pointing out this is

:02:14.:02:17.

a very uncertain world. She drew attention to China and Russia,

:02:18.:02:22.

countries without traditions of democracy and liberty. She was

:02:23.:02:30.

reminding everyone of what British and American leadership of the world

:02:31.:02:34.

has achieved and what it could achieve again. Laura, you are

:02:35.:02:38.

staying with us for a few minutes. Just encase there are some you

:02:39.:02:44.

tuning in and you did not see the whole of Prime Minister may's

:02:45.:02:48.

speech. Here are some of the key moments. We have the opportunity, in

:02:49.:02:55.

deed the responsibility to renew the special relationship for this new

:02:56.:03:00.

age. We have the opportunity to lead together again. Because the world is

:03:01.:03:08.

passing through a period of change. And in response to that change, we

:03:09.:03:14.

can either be passive bystanders, or we can take the opportunity once

:03:15.:03:20.

more to lead, and to lead together. Yesterday, we got an awful lot of

:03:21.:03:24.

questions from you on the Trump residency and the issues relating to

:03:25.:03:32.

it. We will keep doing that today. The hashtag is on the screen

:03:33.:03:39.

throughout. Ben is watching the Londoner says how can Theresa May

:03:40.:03:43.

going discussing a trade deal in the next two days bearing in mind

:03:44.:03:49.

Brexit? We can talk about negotiations in principle but you

:03:50.:03:54.

are right to highlight that until Brexit has been completed, the US

:03:55.:03:59.

and UK cannot conduct negotiations formally to begin a new trade deal.

:04:00.:04:02.

Let's turn to another issue we covered yesterday. Donald Trump said

:04:03.:04:11.

he condones water boarding. That is a form of torture.

:04:12.:04:25.

He said we have to fight fire with fire. We are not playing an uneven

:04:26.:04:34.

field. Theresa May said -- Laura Kuenssberg

:04:35.:04:43.

said that Theresa May condemns torture and says guidance that

:04:44.:04:46.

prevents the UK sharing intelligence with those who use it went change.

:04:47.:04:53.

This is what two senior Republicans said today when asked about the

:04:54.:04:57.

water boarding comments. I think the director of the CIA has made it

:04:58.:05:00.

clear he is going to follow the law and I believe all my members are

:05:01.:05:04.

comfortable with the state of the law on that issue now. And torture

:05:05.:05:10.

is illegal? Torture is not legal and we agree with that. That is very

:05:11.:05:16.

clear. Let's bring Laura back in. I guess this is one of several issues

:05:17.:05:21.

in which Theresa May has to tread carefully with reference to what the

:05:22.:05:30.

Prime -- president said? It is. President Trump seems to be at odds

:05:31.:05:36.

with his own party and indeed with his appointees. One of his big

:05:37.:05:40.

applause lines in the campaign was when he talked about torture working

:05:41.:05:45.

and bringing back water boarding. Theresa May has very clearly made

:05:46.:05:49.

the point that Britain would probably not be able to participate

:05:50.:05:53.

in some intelligence sharing with America if torture was brought back

:05:54.:05:59.

into the American Army Field manual which is a manual governing the way

:06:00.:06:05.

US operatives conduct interrogations. Clearly, there is a

:06:06.:06:09.

big difference there. Also the point with Donald Trump is he says to his

:06:10.:06:13.

base that torture works because he knows that what they want to hear,

:06:14.:06:20.

but also in the ABC interview he had a big caveat and said he would rely

:06:21.:06:23.

on the advice from those around him. We already know that General Mattis

:06:24.:06:37.

said a cup of coffee and a cigarette can be more effective. Theresa May

:06:38.:06:43.

of having to tread a careful line coming here wanting that trade deal

:06:44.:06:49.

above all. Run through the chronology tomorrow. They will meet,

:06:50.:06:54.

the pair. Theresa May made a joke on the plane and she said, sometimes

:06:55.:07:00.

having to heard that opposites attract? The bigger's daughter and

:07:01.:07:10.

the recount -- reality TV star -- the bigger's daughter and the reed

:07:11.:07:16.

talent -- reality TV star will meet. Then they will get gifts. Will it be

:07:17.:07:23.

a Tiffany box? There was the big one given to the Obamas and they did not

:07:24.:07:28.

know what to do with it. Have you seen the film Love macro actually?

:07:29.:07:32.

There was a press conference in that. We will see what will happen

:07:33.:07:40.

tomorrow. That will be live on BBC news wherever you are watching in

:07:41.:07:41.

the world. Tensions between Mexico and Donald

:07:42.:07:46.

Trump are escalating - fast. The Mexican President

:07:47.:07:48.

has cancelled his visit He wasn't left too many

:07:49.:07:50.

options after Mr Trump If Mexico

:07:51.:07:53.

is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall,

:07:54.:08:09.

then it would be better to cancel The president of Mexico and myself

:08:10.:08:33.

have agreed to cancel our planned meeting scheduled for next week.

:08:34.:08:38.

Unless Mexico is going to treat the United States fairly, with respect,

:08:39.:08:45.

such a meeting would be fruitless and I want to go a different route.

:08:46.:08:54.

We have no choice. So there is the president saying he wants to go a

:08:55.:08:58.

different way. We don't have a huge amount of information about what

:08:59.:09:10.

that would mean. We can bring in our BBC correspondent. For some people

:09:11.:09:21.

that would cause concern? He said he would take a different way. From the

:09:22.:09:27.

Mexican government perspective, that was the country who invited him to

:09:28.:09:33.

Mexico City when he was still a candidate, at great political cost

:09:34.:09:41.

to President Enrique Pena Nieto. And the tweets you mentioned on both

:09:42.:09:44.

sides ultimately culminated in the fact that the summit has been

:09:45.:09:49.

cancelled. In terms of how it goes from here, the latest we have heard

:09:50.:09:54.

this from Sean Spicer, the White House prosecco Terry, who said they

:09:55.:09:59.

could be a 20% tax on all Mexican imports into the United States, an

:10:00.:10:05.

extraordinary measure given that Mexico imports $300 billion worth of

:10:06.:10:08.

imports into the United States every year. It is one of the key trading

:10:09.:10:15.

partners. In terms of attitudes towards America, clearly Mexico and

:10:16.:10:20.

American society is clearly intertwined, our attitudes harden in

:10:21.:10:24.

towards the Trump administration? Certainly on the streets they are,

:10:25.:10:29.

if they can get any harder. People are already taking a dim view of Mr

:10:30.:10:34.

Trump before he took office. Now he is in his fourth or fifth day, they

:10:35.:10:38.

still don't feel any better about him being there, most Mexicans. That

:10:39.:10:44.

is because they see the war as a symbol of a broader policy that is

:10:45.:10:50.

anti-Mexico, antique centre of America. There are lots of other

:10:51.:10:53.

things they need to talk about beyond the wall. The cross-border

:10:54.:10:58.

security issue, the guns used by the drug cartels in Mexico generally

:10:59.:11:02.

come from the United States. The money for the drugs that go north

:11:03.:11:07.

also comes back from the United States. There are questions on both

:11:08.:11:12.

sides and I think this impasse, Mexicans are worried these issues

:11:13.:11:15.

cannot be dealt with if the two leaders cannot speak to each other.

:11:16.:11:20.

Thank you. We'll grant live from Mexico City. Now as we go into the

:11:21.:11:26.

second half of outside source we will update you on every single

:11:27.:11:31.

major development to do with the Trump administration today. You can

:11:32.:11:37.

e-mail us your questions and use my social media contacts as well. First

:11:38.:11:41.

of all... That clip of Mr Trump that

:11:42.:11:42.

I played was from a speech We can speak to Anthony Zurcher who

:11:43.:11:58.

is live from Washington. Just a quick word about the repeated

:11:59.:12:05.

references to divinity that Mr Trump is using. He said Republicans are

:12:06.:12:10.

doing work lest by divinity. It seemed like a striking phrase. Does

:12:11.:12:16.

seem like that way but Donald Trump did have strong evangelical support

:12:17.:12:19.

in his win in the recent election, more than Mitt Romney before him,

:12:20.:12:23.

said he wants to reach out to religious voters and this is a way

:12:24.:12:30.

of showing them. Anthony is our go to man for questions on the Trump

:12:31.:12:33.

presidency so keep them coming in and we will work through them in a

:12:34.:12:38.

few minutes time. I will speak to you then.

:12:39.:12:59.

Good evening. Coming up over the next few minutes, news of cold

:13:00.:13:05.

weather arriving in Western
