at half past 11 when Anne and Tony will look at the front pages. Coming


up next, Reporters. Hello, welcome to Reporters,


I'm Christian Frazier. From here in the BBC's Newsroom,


we send out correspondents to bring you the best stories


from across the globe. As the United States enters


a new political era, John Sudworth has been finding out


how China is reacting Before his election,


China could simply dismiss Donald Trump's rhetoric


as the over-inflated bluster Is Britain coming


together over Brexit? After the Prime Minister


clarifies her Brexit strategy, Jeremy Cook finds out whether people


on both sides of the debate Rupert Wingfield-Hayes finds out why


the world's largest seafood market is moving and why some are not


happy about it. These are the fish that are 200-250


kilos and these are the ones that The current record for one


fish here, $1.7 million. Well, there's no doubt


what was the biggest international event of this week,


it's been trailed for months, but now Donald Trump has finally


been sworn in as the 45th President One nation who will be


watching the new American Mr Trump broke with decades


of precedent last month by taking a telephone call from a telephone


call the Taiwanese President, a move that has angered Beijing


which regards Taiwan State media said China would "take


off the gloves" if such As John Sudworth reports, in China,


Mr Trump has gone from a figure of fun to someone who's provoking


a loft anger. Not everyone in China is taking


Donald Trump too seriously. His inauguration this


week comes just ahead of the Chinese New Year


of the Rooster. And this factory is making, well,


giant Trump lookalike "The orders are flowing in, we can


barely cope", the boss tells me. But increasingly, Mr Trump


is becoming a target of anger, Mock-ups of Taiwanese ships provide


shooting practice at this Chinese military museum,


just across the Taiwan Strait. While US presidents have long


avoided challenging Beijing's claim to sovereignty,


the so-called one China policy, "China's military,


especially our Navy, "We don't fear US provocation",


this man tells me. "We want peace, but if they cross


our red line we have to take Last week, in a move seen by some


as intended to make that very point, China sent its aircraft carrier


through the Taiwan Strait. And China's Communist Party-run


newspapers have issued a stark warning, telling Mr Trump that


if he changes US policy, Beijing will have no choice


but to take off the gloves, and that China will mercilessly


combat those who advocate These Chinese workers make luxury


marble products for the US market. For them, the biggest fear


is not rising military Their American boss believes


Mr Trump's threatened tariffs will do nothing to change


the basic market reality. Hiring one worker in the states,


I could hire five to six in China. So moving our business to the States


would impinge into our margins which would then reflect on consumer


pricing, And it would be very difficult to run


a business that way. The world's about to find out


whether one of the most vital and complex bilateral relationships


is to undergo a profound change. Before his election,


China could simply dismiss Donald Trump's rhetoric


as the overinflated bluster And China is making it


increasingly clear that while it has a lot to lose,


so, too, does America To Syria now, where the United


Nations says 40,000 people have returned to their homes in the east


of Aleppo, the city devastated Some still say they're confused,


but we did get some clarity this week on Britain's plans for Brexit


as Theresa May announced her 12-point plan, including a pledge


to leave the single market. The Prime Minister insisted that


people were coming together, but she also acknowledged just how


divisive last year's We sent Jeremy Cook to see how those


on different sides of the argument Boston, an ancient English town,


a changing landscape. On the bus, plenty of support


for the Prime Minister's speech, More than one in ten people


here are EU migrants. Is it a price worth paying to come


out of the single market in order You've got to control


it in some way. At the Boston Body Hub,


it's 60s dance work out. The project is largely EU-funded,


but most here voted Brexit. Many worried about levels


of immigration and the The worry is we might lose


some trade with Europe What do you think


about that trade off? The trade off, I think,


will be worth it because I think Britain's big enough to take


care of itself. It's Great Britain -


it always has been, Outside Boston, the


agricultural heartland. Many crops being prepared today


will need migrant workers Within the industry we need labour


and without it we will starve. What would you say to Theresa May


then in terms of what you need I am hoping from this that she's


going to allow skills and labour to be filled in the farming


community, within packers, within processing, within the field


labour, where's it's required. These workers are essential


to you, aren't they? An hour's drive and we're


on the banks of the Trent. In Rushcliffe, they voted 57%


to remain in the EU. At the Spoke and Coke cafe


and bike shop, a different I voted remain, and I was quite


surprised by the outcome of the vote, but Theresa May has


outlined today is what the country And I think we need clear


leadership to make sure that Not everyone here


is quite as relaxed. I don't think we realise


how bad it is yet. Do you think we're any clearer


tonight, after Theresa May's speech, Essentially, her message


was the same - Brexit means Brexit. But we still don't really


know what it means! For the Prime Minister then,


Brexit remains the greatest of political challenges,


in this still divided nation. Finally, if you like sushi,


you're going to love this. We're going to take you now


to the world's biggest fish market, the legendary


Tsukiji Fish Centre in Japan. It supplies Tokyo's finest sushi


restaurants as well as the general public, but it's being closed down


and being moved to a bigger, more modern site, and,


as Rupert Wingfield-Hayes reports, many people are not


too happy about it. It's 5.00am in the morning


inside the world's biggest fish market and the tuna auctions


are under way. This is the first auction


of 2017 and the prices This is going to be the last


new year auction held in Tsukiji perhaps ever because this market


supposed to close and over here, if you come over here, you can see,


you can see through here, These are the fish that


are 200-250 kilos. These are the ones that might


reach record prices. The current record for one


fish here, $1.7 million. Tsukiji Market is like no


other, vast and chaotic. On a good day, 60,000 people bustle


through this maze of alleys shops, but soon all of this will be gone,


the buildings demolished, This man's family have been trading


tuna since the days of the Shogun. In Tsukiji, I'm the third generation


and we are doing this business So what we feel is,


we built this place. I mean, Tsukiji, it's


not built by someone. Actually, we make the history


in this place, but why The meat from this 200 kilo monster


will go to the top sushi But fish like this are


getting hard to find. In the Pacific and Atlantic stocks


of bluefin tuna have The frozen one is just


1,000 or less each day and the fresh one is like 300,


200, sometimes 100 or less. So we don't have enough


fish to sell, actually. Do you worry about the


future of the industry? Maybe it's going to be


like the whale, it could be. This new year the top bid went


for this 210 kilo bluefin, $632,000. Critics say publicity stunts


like this ignore the fact that these Rupert Wingfield-Hayes, BBC News,


at the Tsukiji Market, in Tokyo. That's all from Reporters


for this week. From me, Christian Frazier,


goodbye for now.
