opened their biggest restaurant. The hundreds of Muscovites won't find it

cheap, with a big Mac costing half a day's wages.

:00:00.:00:10.

This is Outside Source live from the BBC newsroom.

:00:11.:00:12.

President Trump has just arrived in Philadelphia on Air Force One and is

:00:13.:00:22.

due to speak shortly at this gathering of senior Republicans.

:00:23.:00:25.

Let's bring you some of the main stories from BBC World Service. BBC

:00:26.:00:29.

Turkish is covering the fact that the Supreme Court has ruled that a

:00:30.:00:32.

group of eight Turkish soldiers who fled their country by helicopter

:00:33.:00:39.

after a failed coup in July. They say that they were involved in the

:00:40.:00:41.

plot. The British Foreign Secretary Boris

:00:42.:00:44.

Johnson has suggested that the Syrian President Bashar

:00:45.:00:46.

al-Assad should be allowed to run for election and potentially

:00:47.:00:48.

remain in power as a means And if you haven't seen this,

:00:49.:00:51.

I can recommend it. This is rock, paper,

:00:52.:00:57.

scissors on a whole new level. The winner of this televised battle

:00:58.:00:59.

won a place as the lead singer Not a bad prize - they've sold more

:01:00.:01:03.

than 40 million singles. Within the last hour,

:01:04.:01:16.

Gambia's new President Adama Barrow These are pictures of Mr Barrow

:01:17.:01:18.

leaving his temporary home He was sworn in there as Gambia's

:01:19.:01:23.

president a week ago, He is only now able to return

:01:24.:01:47.

because Yayha Jammeh has gone into X I'll.

:01:48.:01:50.

Mr Trump is about to speak, so let's bring in the feed but we have.

:01:51.:01:58.

APPLAUSE Thank you. So nice, nice to win, do

:01:59.:02:05.

we agree? It's been a while since we had this position! And I want to

:02:06.:02:11.

thank everybody in the room, so many friends. Thank you very much. Sit

:02:12.:02:15.

down, every body, let's enjoy ourselves. It's great to be in

:02:16.:02:20.

Philadelphia, I went to school in Philadelphia. It is a very special

:02:21.:02:26.

place in our nation's history. It's the place where we launched our

:02:27.:02:32.

American independence. The state of Pennsylvania is very special to me

:02:33.:02:36.

for lots of reasons, especially from a couple of months ago, remember?

:02:37.:02:40.

APPLAUSE Pennsylvania cannot be won,

:02:41.:02:46.

remember? Pennsylvania cannot be won. Right, Congressman? There is no

:02:47.:02:52.

path to victory for Trump in Pennsylvania. Except we won. Now, it

:02:53.:02:58.

has been a long time since you guys did this, but it was just a great

:02:59.:03:05.

victory, it was a great evening, I will tell you, but it sort of

:03:06.:03:08.

started in Pennsylvania. They all said that Pennsylvania was the bride

:03:09.:03:16.

that got away, that it was the state that everybody from the Republican

:03:17.:03:18.

party that ran in Pennsylvania for 38 years thought that they won,

:03:19.:03:24.

except they never won, and I thought that I won, to, but I was afraid to

:03:25.:03:29.

say it, Mitch, because it just seemed it wasn't working out, so I

:03:30.:03:34.

just said, I think we did great, but let's see what happens. And good

:03:35.:03:38.

things happened. So we love this state and we will see it many times

:03:39.:03:46.

again. Now is the dawn of a new era where the people are in charge of

:03:47.:03:51.

their own destiny. I want to thank Majority Leader McConnell, great

:03:52.:03:58.

guy. And speaker Paul Ryan, very, very special, and he is writing his

:03:59.:04:04.

heart out, right? And we are actually going to sign their stuff

:04:05.:04:09.

that you are writing, you are not wasting your time!

:04:10.:04:10.

APPLAUSE He would write and he would send it

:04:11.:04:12.

up and nothing would happen, but now up and nothing would happen, but now

:04:13.:04:17.

it is going to happen. For their leadership and inviting me here

:04:18.:04:22.

today, thank you very much. And thank you, leader McCarthy,

:04:23.:04:30.

Congressman's Gillies, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rogers and

:04:31.:04:34.

congressmen necessary or leadership as well. It has been terrific. This

:04:35.:04:42.

Congress is going to be the busiest Congress we have had in decades.

:04:43.:04:47.

Maybe ever. Maybe ever. Think of that. And think of everything we can

:04:48.:04:56.

achieve. And remember who we must achieve it for. We are here now

:04:57.:05:02.

because tens of millions of Americans have placed their hopes in

:05:03.:05:07.

us to transfer power from Washington, DC and give it back to

:05:08.:05:08.

the people. APPLAUSE

:05:09.:05:16.

So important. Now we have to deliver. Enough all talk, no action.

:05:17.:05:26.

We have to deliver. This is our chance to achieve great and lasting

:05:27.:05:31.

change for our beloved nation. Since taking office, I have taken major

:05:32.:05:37.

contractual steps to restore the rule of law and to return power to

:05:38.:05:44.

everyday Americans. APPLAUSE

:05:45.:05:51.

And even though it's only a few days, we have done it in record

:05:52.:05:54.

numbers. We've issued executive orders to build the Keystone and

:05:55.:06:07.

Dakota pipelines, and issued a new requirement for American pipelines

:06:08.:06:11.

to be made with American steel and fabricated in the United States.

:06:12.:06:16.

APPLAUSE And I was sitting at my desk, and

:06:17.:06:20.

I'm getting ready to sign Keystone and Dakota, and I say, where is the

:06:21.:06:25.

pipe coming from, and I won't tell you where, but you wouldn't be

:06:26.:06:29.

happy. And I said why do we build pipelines and we are not using pipe

:06:30.:06:32.

that is made in our country? Let's put that little clause in, one

:06:33.:06:39.

sentence, but that will attract a lot of people, and we will make that

:06:40.:06:43.

pipe right here in America, OK? APPLAUSE

:06:44.:06:49.

If people want to build pipelines on our land, we want the pipe to be

:06:50.:06:53.

manufactured, and not only that, manufactured here but you will see a

:06:54.:06:58.

level of quality that you are not going to see when they bring pipe

:06:59.:07:04.

from far distances, have to bring it in small chunks and then fabricate

:07:05.:07:09.

can do much better than that, and we can do much better than that, and we

:07:10.:07:13.

are going to do it much better, and it is going to end up costing less

:07:14.:07:18.

money, believe me. We have reinstated the Mexico City policy, a

:07:19.:07:21.

long-standing policy... APPLAUSE

:07:22.:07:42.

And by the way, on Friday, a lot of people are going to be showing up to

:07:43.:07:57.

Washington, right, Mike? A lot of people. The press never gives them

:07:58.:08:00.

the credit that they deserve. They will have 300, 400, 500, 600,000

:08:01.:08:03.

people, you won't even read about it. When other people show up, you

:08:04.:08:07.

read big-time about it, right? So it's not fair, but nothing fair

:08:08.:08:09.

about the media. LAUGHTER

:08:10.:08:13.

Nothing. APPLAUSE

:08:14.:08:21.

A long-standing policy to make sure that taxpayer dollars do not fund

:08:22.:08:28.

abortion services overseas. We have issued executive orders to remove

:08:29.:08:32.

wasteful regulations that slowdown, as and delay infrastructure, which

:08:33.:08:40.

we desperately need. The very beginning of a massive effort to

:08:41.:08:44.

reduce crushing regulations on our economy, and we are going to reduce

:08:45.:08:48.

regulations big-time. APPLAUSE

:08:49.:08:54.

We have also withdrawn from the transpacific partnership, paving the

:08:55.:08:58.

way for a new one-on-one trade deals that protect and defend the American

:08:59.:09:02.

worker, and believe me, we are going to have a lot of trade deals...

:09:03.:09:06.

Mitch, don't worry about it. Just give me a full-time. But they will

:09:07.:09:11.

be one-on-one, they would be a whole baker match pot -- they won't be a

:09:12.:09:21.

whole big mash pot, and if that country doesn't deal with us fairly,

:09:22.:09:30.

they will get a 30 day notice to quit. We will have very strong

:09:31.:09:36.

controls over monetary manipulation and devaluation, which they didn't

:09:37.:09:40.

having TPP, so this will be so much better, and we are already on it. I

:09:41.:09:45.

would like to have my commerce secretary Wilber approved, because I

:09:46.:09:49.

hear he did fantastically well, but they are not quick with the pen on

:09:50.:09:55.

signing these people, we would like to have him as soon as possible and

:09:56.:09:59.

Mitch says it will be done, and it will be. They could move fast on the

:10:00.:10:03.

other side, I will say that. They could move faster.

:10:04.:10:08.

APPLAUSE I am meeting with the Prime Minister

:10:09.:10:12.

tomorrow, as you know. Of Great Britain. I am meeting with her

:10:13.:10:19.

tomorrow. I don't have my, is secretary, and they want to talk

:10:20.:10:22.

trade, so I will have to handle it myself. Which is OK.

:10:23.:10:29.

LAUGHTER We have put in place the first steps

:10:30.:10:33.

in our immigration plan ordering the immediate construction of the border

:10:34.:10:37.

wall, putting an end to catch and release, expediting the removal of

:10:38.:10:42.

criminal... This is so important to me. From the first day I have said

:10:43.:10:49.

it. The immediate removal of criminal aliens. They are going to

:10:50.:10:55.

be gone, fast. And finally, at long last, cracking down on Sanctuary

:10:56.:10:59.

cities. CHEERING

:11:00.:11:09.

It's time to restore the civil rights of Americans to protect their

:11:10.:11:14.

jobs, their hopes and their dreams for a much better future. Congress

:11:15.:11:20.

passed these laws to serve our citizens, and it's about time those

:11:21.:11:24.

laws were properly enforced. They are not enforced.

:11:25.:11:28.

APPLAUSE The hour of justice for the American

:11:29.:11:34.

worker has arrived. Border security is a serious, serious national issue

:11:35.:11:41.

and problem. A lack of security poses a substantial threat to the

:11:42.:11:45.

sovereignty and safety of the United States of America and its citizens.

:11:46.:11:51.

Most illegal immigration is coming from our southern border. I've said

:11:52.:11:59.

many times that the American people will not pay for the wall. And I've

:12:00.:12:03.

made that clear to the government of Mexico. Nafta has been a terrible

:12:04.:12:11.

deal, a total disaster for the United States from its inception,

:12:12.:12:21.

costing us as much as $60 billion a year with Mexico alone in trade

:12:22.:12:25.

deficits. Who negotiates these deals? Not to mention millions of

:12:26.:12:31.

jobs and thousands and thousands of factories and plants closing down

:12:32.:12:37.

all over our country. On top of that the trillions of dollars the US

:12:38.:12:43.

taxpayers have spent to pay the cost of illegal immigration. Much of it

:12:44.:12:49.

has then been sent back, and much of it goes back to other countries, and

:12:50.:12:53.

oftentimes because they don't respect us, the other countries will

:12:54.:12:58.

not accept the criminals that we send back to them that are illegally

:12:59.:13:05.

in our country. I promise you they will start accepting them again.

:13:06.:13:09.

Quickly. We are not going to have them any longer. I will not allow

:13:10.:13:14.

the taxpayers or the citizens of the United States to pay the cost of

:13:15.:13:20.

this defective transaction Nafta, one that should have been

:13:21.:13:23.

renegotiated many years ago, except that the politicians were too

:13:24.:13:30.

preoccupied to do so. Now, these people are not in that category, you

:13:31.:13:37.

understand that this is different. To that end, the president of Mexico

:13:38.:13:41.

and myself have agreed to cancel our planned meeting scheduled for next

:13:42.:13:47.

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

:13:48.:13:54.

respect, such a meeting would be fruitless, and I want to go a

:13:55.:14:00.

different route. We have no choice. Paul Ryan and other leaders in

:14:01.:14:05.

Congress and I and Mike Pence, who, by the way, how good a choice was

:14:06.:14:10.

vice president Mike Pence? CHEERING

:14:11.:14:13.

Everybody loves him. In fact, any time I got myself into

:14:14.:14:30.

a jam. I haven't been doing this stuff too long! Any time I got

:14:31.:14:33.

myself into a jam, oftentimes they would say on television, but look,

:14:34.:14:40.

he picked Mike Pence, so he's got to have something going right! So Mike

:14:41.:14:44.

really helped me out. Well, we are working on a tax reform Bill that

:14:45.:14:48.

will reduce our trade deficit, increase American exports and will

:14:49.:14:55.

generate revenue for Mexico -- from Mexico that will pay for the wall of

:14:56.:14:58.

we decide to go that route. It is time that the American people had a

:14:59.:15:03.

president fighting as hard for its citizens as other countries do for

:15:04.:15:09.

there is. And that's exactly what I'm going to do for you. Believe me.

:15:10.:15:15.

APPLAUSE Thank you. Thank you.

:15:16.:15:22.

It's time that somebody fought for our country, and didn't let anyone

:15:23.:15:28.

take advantage of us any more. The world has taken advantage of us for

:15:29.:15:31.

many years, not going to but any more. We will have an ambitious

:15:32.:15:37.

legislative agenda as well, our legislative work starts with

:15:38.:15:44.

repealing and replacing Obama care, and saving families from the

:15:45.:15:49.

catastrophic rise in premiums and debilitating loss of choice in just

:15:50.:15:55.

about everything else. And remember this for this room in particular.

:15:56.:16:02.

Obamacare is a disaster. The Democrats are putting up signs like

:16:03.:16:06.

it is wonderful, it's a disaster. I actually talked with Paul and the

:16:07.:16:10.

group about just doing nothing to years, and the Dems would come

:16:11.:16:17.

begging to do something, because 17 is going to be catastrophic rice

:16:18.:16:22.

increases, your deductibles through the roof, you can't use you can't

:16:23.:16:28.

use it. And they would come to us. Except we have one problem. We have

:16:29.:16:31.

to take care of the American people immediately. So we can't wait. But

:16:32.:16:38.

every time they tell you about Obamacare, we're taking them out of

:16:39.:16:42.

a big jam, big jam. We are putting ourselves at risk to a certain

:16:43.:16:46.

extent, because we are taking it off their platter. But I think,

:16:47.:16:50.

congressmen, I think we have no choice. I think we have no choice,

:16:51.:16:56.

we have to get it going. If we waited two years, it is going to

:16:57.:16:59.

explode like you have never seen an explosion, nobody is going to be

:17:00.:17:04.

able to afford it. It's a disaster. And that's politically what we

:17:05.:17:07.

should do, but we don't want to do that, we want to get something done

:17:08.:17:11.

and get it done right, and by the way, Tom Pryce is going to do a

:17:12.:17:15.

phenomenal job. I don't know if he's here, but he will do a phenomenal

:17:16.:17:17.

job. On my first day in office I signed

:17:18.:17:27.

an executive of the -- order to roll back Obamacare and produce the

:17:28.:17:31.

ability for individuals to choose customise plans that are truly right

:17:32.:17:37.

for them and have so many choices. Tom Price will soon be leading

:17:38.:17:42.

health and June this is. He is a true advocate for patients, he is

:17:43.:17:46.

going to do a phenomenal job, we have no doubt about that. He joins

:17:47.:17:51.

an all-star roster that includes many of your colleagues. Men who

:17:52.:18:01.

have had tough time in Congress. And in the Senate. But they came out

:18:02.:18:09.

very well. Mike Pompeo. He is a phenomenal guy along with Jeff

:18:10.:18:14.

Sessions. He is a fine person. He was one of my earliest endorses. I

:18:15.:18:22.

have never endorsed a presidential candidate before and he was one of

:18:23.:18:26.

my earliest ones and he did unbelievably well in front of the

:18:27.:18:31.

committee. In addition to fixing our health care we will pursue new trade

:18:32.:18:35.

deals that increase wages and produce more opportunities for

:18:36.:18:38.

American workers, bringing back those knives and words, made in the

:18:39.:18:43.

USA. We used to have that, we don't have that any more. It is going to

:18:44.:18:50.

be America first again. We will create millions of good paying jobs

:18:51.:18:54.

by removing the economic burdens that cripple our ability to compete.

:18:55.:19:01.

At the centre that agenda is tax reform that massively lowers taxes

:19:02.:19:05.

for our middle-class and for all American businesses. We will also

:19:06.:19:15.

pursue financial reform that will help striving Americans get the

:19:16.:19:17.

credit that they need to realise their dreams. Republicans have

:19:18.:19:26.

always been the party of American industry and the American worker. We

:19:27.:19:29.

must embrace that heritage, rebuilding this country with

:19:30.:19:34.

American goods and American labour. And we have started, believe me,

:19:35.:19:39.

over the last few months. I don't know, I would like to say I did

:19:40.:19:43.

about as much as any one or more intensive getting industry to start

:19:44.:19:46.

coming back to our country before I took office. But we have a lot of

:19:47.:19:51.

great news with Ford and General Motors and Fiat and Chrysler and

:19:52.:19:56.

many others. We have a great number of companies and great news. We have

:19:57.:19:59.

many additional people coming and going. We have a lot of positive

:20:00.:20:03.

things happening and you will start to see it bursting out very soon. We

:20:04.:20:08.

want to get our people off of welfare and back to work, it is so

:20:09.:20:13.

important. It is out of control, it is out of control. And we believe

:20:14.:20:18.

that the world's best country ought to have the world's best

:20:19.:20:22.

infrastructure. It is what our people deserve and that is what we

:20:23.:20:29.

will ensure they get. I infrastructure is in serious

:20:30.:20:32.

trouble. We will build new roads and highways and tunnels and airports

:20:33.:20:36.

and railway is across the nation. We will fix our existing product before

:20:37.:20:41.

we build anything brand-new. However, we have to fix what we

:20:42.:20:46.

have, it is a mess. So we will fix it first. What I do best in life is

:20:47.:20:50.

bold, we will fix at first because we have a lot of things that are in

:20:51.:20:55.

bad shape. And we will rebuild our military and take air of our great

:20:56.:21:00.

veterans. APPLAUSE

:21:01.:21:12.

Thank you. We are working hard with the

:21:13.:21:16.

veterans, we will do something very special with them. At the same time,

:21:17.:21:21.

we will unleash the full power of American energy, ending the job

:21:22.:21:27.

killing restrictions on shale gas, oil, natural gas and clean beautiful

:21:28.:21:30.

call. And we will put our coal miners back to work.

:21:31.:21:41.

APPLAUSE Thank you.

:21:42.:21:46.

And we will protect our farmers. Our ranchers. Our hunters, our anglers

:21:47.:21:54.

and all who enjoy the outdoors. But to be a rich country, we must also

:21:55.:22:00.

be a safe country. Right now, too many families do not feel secure.

:22:01.:22:07.

Just look at the 30 largest cities. In the last year a loan, the murder

:22:08.:22:11.

rate has increased by an estimated 14%. Here in Philadelphia, the

:22:12.:22:19.

murder rate has been steady, just terrible increasing and then you

:22:20.:22:23.

look at Chicago. What is going on in Chicago? I said the other day, what

:22:24.:22:35.

the hell is going on? A lot of truth to that! That is why we will

:22:36.:22:40.

continue to stand with the incredible men and women of law

:22:41.:22:43.

enforcement. APPLAUSE

:22:44.:23:00.

Yesterday, I had the honour of swearing and General John Kelly as

:23:01.:23:06.

the Secretary of Homeland Security. He will be amazing.

:23:07.:23:13.

Tomorrow I will swear in general James Mattis as our new secretary of

:23:14.:23:23.

this is. -- secretary of the fence. These men have dedicated their lives

:23:24.:23:27.

to defending America and I look forward to working with them. Along

:23:28.:23:33.

with our great new head of the... We have so many different people that

:23:34.:23:37.

we are putting in office, I think it is the group of stars, like, nobody

:23:38.:23:43.

has seen before. Where is Mike Pompeo? Where the hell is he? Did he

:23:44.:23:52.

ever come here? He is working? He is going to be another one of the big

:23:53.:23:56.

stars. I have to mention him every single time. And with you in

:23:57.:24:06.

Congress to keep our country safe from threats, that includes

:24:07.:24:11.

protecting Americans from radical Islamic terrorism.

:24:12.:24:20.

APPLAUSE We also need to keep the ballot box

:24:21.:24:25.

safe from illegal voting. And believe me, take a look at what

:24:26.:24:32.

is registering, folks, they like to have a go at me but look at what is

:24:33.:24:36.

registering. We are going to protect the integrity of the ballot box and

:24:37.:24:40.

we're going to defend the votes of the American citizens, it is so

:24:41.:24:45.

important. All of us here today, for the same reason, to serve the

:24:46.:24:51.

citizens of our country. We are not here for ourselves, we are here for

:24:52.:24:54.

them. We are here for the people. We are blessed by divinity and honoured

:24:55.:25:00.

by history with the task of preserving this great Republic and

:25:01.:25:04.

expanding its blessings to every single American.

:25:05.:25:11.

APPLAUSE Thank you. All of us are joined in

:25:12.:25:25.

this effort, all of us are bound by duty and bound by God to give

:25:26.:25:30.

powerful devotion to this country and its people. That obligation form

:25:31.:25:38.

is the moral foundation of our agenda. That agenda includes a lean,

:25:39.:25:47.

efficient government. One that appoints Supreme Court justices,

:25:48.:25:51.

that is so important, who will uphold and defend our Constitution,

:25:52.:25:55.

reducing taxation and regulation. Fair trade that creates A-level

:25:56.:26:00.

playing field, as opposed to what we have right now, and fostering

:26:01.:26:03.

respect for our country and its flight. We are now only at the

:26:04.:26:08.

beginning of this incredible journey together. -- flag-mac. I am honoured

:26:09.:26:14.

to be your partner in this amazing quest. I am privileged to stand with

:26:15.:26:17.

you, shoulder to shoulder, as we work every single day to make

:26:18.:26:24.

America great again. Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America. It

:26:25.:26:28.

is a great honour to be here, thank you very much.

:26:29.:26:28.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE So, Donald Trump addressing

:26:29.:26:49.

Republicans there from both the House of Representatives and the

:26:50.:26:51.

Senate at their annual gathering before the start of the new session

:26:52.:26:55.

of the Congress that was elected in November, many of which members were

:26:56.:26:59.

elected at the same time as Donald Trump was elected.

:27:00.:27:03.

They will take office from those politicians, some of whom will

:27:04.:27:06.

obviously be serving in both but were elected at the previous set of

:27:07.:27:10.

elections. He is going to work with a clean sheet and it is going to be

:27:11.:27:14.

a busy term in Washington, according to the president. He has picked out

:27:15.:27:21.

a number of things to tackle immediately, one was Obamacare, the

:27:22.:27:23.

health service reforms were introduced by the president.

:27:24.:27:26.

Republicans, including President Trump has said it will be a disaster

:27:27.:27:30.

and he has said it is not in the interest of the American people to

:27:31.:27:34.

wait for the scheme to collapse under its own contradictions, as he

:27:35.:27:39.

proceeds them. He says to expect particular price rises for Americans

:27:40.:27:43.

relying upon the health insurance. That is one big commitment, others

:27:44.:27:49.

were made. It'll be interesting to see how many congressmen and

:27:50.:27:52.

Congresswoman will try to get pictures of Donald Trump. When you

:27:53.:27:59.

are the winner, everybody is on your side, whether or not you have

:28:00.:28:03.

endorsed them. He is now the leader of their party, in effect, but he

:28:04.:28:06.

will have to work with them and he will have to recognise that there

:28:07.:28:10.

are going to be quite a lot of pensions to surface. Let us speak

:28:11.:28:15.

again to my colleague in the Washington bureau. Anthony, thank

:28:16.:28:18.

you for joining us and listening to Donald Trump. What did you make of

:28:19.:28:24.

that? In many ways it was Donald Trump was my greatest hits tour. He

:28:25.:28:28.

spoke of winning Pennsylvania early on, and then he went through some of

:28:29.:28:32.

the executive actions he has taken over the past week. He spoke of the

:28:33.:28:40.

moves on the pipelines, authorising development of the pipelines,

:28:41.:28:43.

talking about repealing federal regulations, as he mentioned, the

:28:44.:28:47.

affordable care act. He did not really get too much into describing

:28:48.:28:50.

the legislative agenda sort of thing is that Congress can work on, it was

:28:51.:28:53.

more about the things he had already done. He talked about the scheduled

:28:54.:29:01.

meeting with the Mexican President Nieto. It was cancelled, he has said

:29:02.:29:06.

it was a joint decision on the part of both him and the Mexican

:29:07.:29:10.

president and in actuality the Mexican president said earlier today

:29:11.:29:14.

that he was cancelling it as a result of Donald Trump challenging

:29:15.:29:19.

and goading him on Twitter that he was going to come and pledged to pay

:29:20.:29:24.

for the wall. He also said that the world has taken advantage of the US

:29:25.:29:29.

too much in describing US foreign policy, speaking about having more

:29:30.:29:32.

bilateral trade agreements instead of multilateral trade deals. Also

:29:33.:29:38.

interesting was when he started to bite mark the North American Free

:29:39.:29:40.

Trade Agreement and you could tell it was a little bit awkward because

:29:41.:29:44.

the Republican Party has traditionally backed that trade

:29:45.:29:47.

agreement and it was a Republican President George Tubby H Bush in

:29:48.:29:52.

1991 that negotiated the deal. A lot of Republicans voted for that,

:29:53.:30:00.

including Democrats like Bill Clinton. It was interesting to see

:30:01.:30:03.

them talking down international trade deals. On the question of

:30:04.:30:08.

bilateral trade, we have to use a coming to visit the president in the

:30:09.:30:14.

White House tomorrow. She, I understand, has now landed, so she

:30:15.:30:18.

is in the United States but she will be addressing that issue. She is

:30:19.:30:22.

very keen to get warm words from him, what will she make of that?

:30:23.:30:27.

Should she be concerned about that reference that any bilateral trade

:30:28.:30:32.

deals will have a 30-day termination period, sort of like the contract

:30:33.:30:38.

you might have, not 14 days at least when you a washing machine or, you

:30:39.:30:42.

know, the buyer can change their mind, but that is quite a short

:30:43.:30:44.

potential cancellation on any great deal, isn't it? Yes, one of the ways

:30:45.:30:50.

that countries deal with each other is by developing reliable agreements

:30:51.:30:58.

that have any lasting power and that people can understand what the

:30:59.:31:01.

country is going to do once the agreements are in place and they can

:31:02.:31:05.

build their policies around that. If you are going to yank at the rug

:31:06.:31:09.

within 30 days, that is pretty unprecedented. You must remember,

:31:10.:31:13.

Donald Trump is coming from a business background, he is a

:31:14.:31:16.

business negotiator and perhaps in business negotiations he will be

:31:17.:31:23.

able to pull out really quickly, that it is part of the deal. Talking

:31:24.:31:26.

about handling negotiations with the Prime Minister, personally he has

:31:27.:31:32.

not had this commerce secretary confirmed yet but he gave a nod

:31:33.:31:35.

operatives, suggesting he could take care of the sort of business deals.

:31:36.:31:40.

-- a nod to the audience. Can I ask you something that he did not

:31:41.:31:43.

mention directly in his speech and that was the debate over whether

:31:44.:31:47.

water boarding would be introduced again by the government. Mitch

:31:48.:31:53.

McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, he has said that at that

:31:54.:31:57.

gathering, it is illegal at the moment, but of course, the ball

:31:58.:32:02.

could be changed. Yes, the law could be changed, there is perhaps some

:32:03.:32:05.

wriggle room that Donald Trump could find to authorise some enhanced

:32:06.:32:10.

interrogation, but it is definitely driving a divide in the Republican

:32:11.:32:14.

party. Paul Ryan said it was illegal and he did not want it changed. I

:32:15.:32:19.

think he avoided that because it was not a receptive audience to his idea

:32:20.:32:29.

on that. Thank you for your views. Let me bring you some news coming

:32:30.:32:32.

into us from the press Association as he listened to Donald Trump and

:32:33.:32:40.

that is that the death of a former Labour leader can DL.

:32:41.:32:57.

-- Tam Dalyell. He was against powers being devolved

:32:58.:33:18.

to Scotland, that was what he was well remembered for. He is the man

:33:19.:33:25.

who was a sceptic about the Scottish devolution and he was a remarkable

:33:26.:33:28.

advocate of his various causes, most prominently, of course, over his

:33:29.:33:31.

opposition to the Iraq war. He accused Tony Blair of being a war

:33:32.:33:37.

criminal. He was very much a rebel, a left-wing rebel in the

:33:38.:33:39.

Parliamentary Labour Party and was Father of the House of Commons

:33:40.:33:43.

having served more than 40 years as a leader. Tam Dalyell, who has died

:33:44.:33:48.

at the age of 84. Now it is time, little later than

:33:49.:33:50.

usual, for Sportsday.

:33:51.:33:56.
