This is Outside Source live from the BBC newsroom.


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


due to speak shortly at this gathering of senior Republicans.


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


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


group of eight Turkish soldiers who fled their country by helicopter


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


plot. The British Foreign Secretary Boris


Johnson has suggested that the Syrian President Bashar


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


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


I can recommend it. This is rock, paper,


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


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


than 40 million singles. Within the last hour,


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


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


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


because Yayha Jammeh has gone into X I'll.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


APPLAUSE Pennsylvania cannot be won,


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


APPLAUSE He would write and he would send it


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


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


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


Congressman's Gillies, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rogers and


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


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


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


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


because tens of millions of Americans have placed their hopes in


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


the people. APPLAUSE


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


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


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


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


everyday Americans. APPLAUSE


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


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


Dakota pipelines, and issued a new requirement for American pipelines


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


APPLAUSE And I was sitting at my desk, and


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


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


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


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


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


pipe right here in America, OK? APPLAUSE


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


long-standing policy... APPLAUSE


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


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


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


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


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


about the media. LAUGHTER




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


abortion services overseas. We have issued executive orders to remove


wasteful regulations that slowdown, as and delay infrastructure, which


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


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


regulations big-time. APPLAUSE


We have also withdrawn from the transpacific partnership, paving the


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


APPLAUSE I am meeting with the Prime Minister


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


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


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


LAUGHTER We have put in place the first steps


in our immigration plan ordering the immediate construction of the border


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


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


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


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


cities. CHEERING


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


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


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


laws were properly enforced. They are not enforced.


APPLAUSE The hour of justice for the American


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


jobs and thousands and thousands of factories and plants closing down


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


this defective transaction Nafta, one that should have been


renegotiated many years ago, except that the politicians were too


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


vice president Mike Pence? CHEERING


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


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


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


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


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


will reduce our trade deficit, increase American exports and will


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


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


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


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


APPLAUSE Thank you. Thank you.


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


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


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


legislative agenda as well, our legislative work starts with


repealing and replacing Obama care, and saving families from the


catastrophic rise in premiums and debilitating loss of choice in just


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


job. On my first day in office I signed


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


ability for individuals to choose customise plans that are truly right


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


deals that increase wages and produce more opportunities for


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


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


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


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


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


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


pursue financial reform that will help striving Americans get the


credit that they need to realise their dreams. Republicans have


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


must embrace that heritage, rebuilding this country with


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


will ensure they get. I infrastructure is in serious


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


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


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


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


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


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


veterans. APPLAUSE


Thank you. We are working hard with the


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


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


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


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


APPLAUSE Thank you.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


continue to stand with the incredible men and women of law


enforcement. APPLAUSE


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


the Secretary of Homeland Security. He will be amazing.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Congress to keep our country safe from threats, that includes


protecting Americans from radical Islamic terrorism.


APPLAUSE We also need to keep the ballot box


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


by history with the task of preserving this great Republic and


expanding its blessings to every single American.


APPLAUSE Thank you. All of us are joined in


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


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


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


efficient government. One that appoints Supreme Court justices,


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


CHEERING AND APPLAUSE So, Donald Trump addressing


Republicans there from both the House of Representatives and the


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


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


elected at the same time as Donald Trump was elected.


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


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


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


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


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


health service reforms were introduced by the president.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


moves on the pipelines, authorising development of the pipelines,


talking about repealing federal regulations, as he mentioned, the


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


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


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


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


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


president and in actuality the Mexican president said earlier today


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


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


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


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


bilateral trade agreements instead of multilateral trade deals. Also


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


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


the Republican Party has traditionally backed that trade


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


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


including Democrats like Bill Clinton. It was interesting to see


them talking down international trade deals. On the question of


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


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


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


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


Should she be concerned about that reference that any bilateral trade


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


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


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


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


that countries deal with each other is by developing reliable agreements


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


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


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


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


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


business negotiator and perhaps in business negotiations he will be


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


about handling negotiations with the Prime Minister, personally he has


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


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


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


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


water boarding would be introduced again by the government. Mitch


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


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


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


wriggle room that Donald Trump could find to authorise some enhanced


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


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


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


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


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


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


-- Tam Dalyell. He was against powers being devolved


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


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


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


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


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


Parliamentary Labour Party and was Father of the House of Commons


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


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


usual, for Sportsday.
