Coming up, train spotting 20 years on.

:00:00.:00:16.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers

:00:17.:00:19.

With me are Jacqui Francis who is a Public Appointments Adviser

:00:20.:00:24.

and Tom Bergin, Business Correspondent at Reuters.

:00:25.:00:29.

the FT says President Trump remains defiant over his controversial

:00:30.:00:34.

travel ban, as protests and legal challenges grow.

:00:35.:00:36.

The Times says the White House has backed down

:00:37.:00:39.

The Telegraph says Boris Johnson has received assurances that the vast

:00:40.:00:46.

majority of UK citizens will be exempt from the ban.

:00:47.:00:50.

The picture is of Sir Mo Farah who's been told tonight he can return

:00:51.:00:54.

The Olympic Champion is also on the front page of the Guardian

:00:55.:00:58.

condemning President Trump's executive order.

:00:59.:01:04.

Sir Mo Farah is quoted in the Daily Star, saying he fears

:01:05.:01:07.

for his family, who all live in America.

:01:08.:01:09.

The Metro's focuses on an online petition calling on the UK

:01:10.:01:13.

government to prevent President Trump making a state visit

:01:14.:01:17.

'You are not welcome here, Mr President' is the Mirror's

:01:18.:01:24.

And according to the Express, a drug to reverse Alzheimer's

:01:25.:01:30.

Let us quickly before we kick off those papers of that word coming

:01:31.:01:48.

into us from Reuters that senior US Administration officials say all

:01:49.:01:52.

executive orders on immigration remain in effect and are being

:01:53.:01:59.

enforced. John Kelly says in applying the provisions of the

:02:00.:02:03.

President executive orders I hereby deemed the entry of lawful permanent

:02:04.:02:08.

residents to be in the national interest. Just an update, they are

:02:09.:02:14.

sticking to their guns. In The Times, they have Donald Trump in

:02:15.:02:20.

climbdown over British travellers. Those people with dual citizenship?

:02:21.:02:29.

They seem to be trumpeting this as a success will British diplomacy. It

:02:30.:02:35.

is not really clear that isn't the case. The executive order, it does

:02:36.:02:42.

not list the countries. The Department of home security does not

:02:43.:02:48.

give a lot of details of those affected. The degree of

:02:49.:02:51.

implementation and the statements you just read, that is a reference

:02:52.:02:57.

to Green card holders and they will be allowed back in. There is a

:02:58.:03:02.

degree of bedding down of these new rules. It has not been outlined in

:03:03.:03:09.

any great detail. They are being worked through and it seems they did

:03:10.:03:16.

not want to target people with British citizenship even if they had

:03:17.:03:20.

citizenship in one of these other countries. Another line coming in

:03:21.:03:28.

from Washington from Reuters, a senior US administration official

:03:29.:03:31.

saying the implementation of the travel ban has been a massive

:03:32.:03:38.

success story. We have seen a lot of protests even if it has been

:03:39.:03:44.

success. For whom? This is ridiculous. We are back to the

:03:45.:03:49.

situation on how many people watched the inauguration. You cannot

:03:50.:03:53.

possibly think that thousands of people protesting across America and

:03:54.:03:57.

different airports saying this has worked and wonderful and successful.

:03:58.:04:03.

All it has done is animated a lot of people around the world -- and the

:04:04.:04:10.

naked, who could have given Donald Trump is until of hype. If you are

:04:11.:04:17.

in America and voted for Donald Trump, this is the best thing that

:04:18.:04:21.

has happened. You are pleased he has done what he said he was going to do

:04:22.:04:25.

but the ripple effects across the world dot Mac he will say he has a

:04:26.:04:31.

democratic mandate. He absolutely has a do not disagree with that but

:04:32.:04:36.

please keep your alternative fax to America and to yourself, do not

:04:37.:04:42.

spread them around the rest of the world. The Guardian and Theresa May

:04:43.:04:52.

about the travel ban. Just after she left Washington this was announced

:04:53.:04:55.

and she was not 100% short about what was going on and she was asked

:04:56.:05:03.

in Turkey. Had she been there when it happened, she would have been

:05:04.:05:08.

next to him being asked these questions. She seems to have

:05:09.:05:13.

struggled to come up with an answer that is deemed acceptable. She has

:05:14.:05:18.

sidestepped the question on a couple of occasions and has finally come

:05:19.:05:22.

out and said it is not something she agrees with. This highlights of the

:05:23.:05:26.

difficult position that Donald Trump can put his allies in. Think about

:05:27.:05:33.

the Muslim nations. He has said this is not a Muslim ban but, you know,

:05:34.:05:40.

given some of the other things he has said in the past, his reference

:05:41.:05:44.

to Christians are being allowed in, on Muslim countries will be pressure

:05:45.:05:49.

on government that seemed to be close to him. There will be an

:05:50.:05:57.

impact from this decision. In The Mail, Britain has escaped travel

:05:58.:06:06.

ban. British angle taken. But there is the other angle which is what are

:06:07.:06:13.

the implications of all of this fall Donald Trump's state visit to Great

:06:14.:06:19.

Britain. The Mirror have a clear front page. We are quoting this, an

:06:20.:06:27.

online petition signed by 100,000, you are not welcome here, Mr

:06:28.:06:33.

President. Does that speak for a lot of the country? Initially, when

:06:34.:06:38.

people heard it, this was what people thought. But this is politics

:06:39.:06:44.

and this is a completely different arena in terms of a state visit by a

:06:45.:06:49.

head of state and by all means, we have this petition where people are

:06:50.:06:55.

voicing how they feel about what he has implemented with this executive

:06:56.:06:59.

order but hopefully it will be debated in Parliament so people can

:07:00.:07:10.

express their forthrightly -- their views more forthrightly. We can show

:07:11.:07:16.

displeasure and revulsion with the way he has treated people, refugees

:07:17.:07:21.

coming to America. America is founded on refugees, people from

:07:22.:07:27.

around the world coming to America for a and he has basically say, if

:07:28.:07:32.

you are Muslim you cannot start you live in America. Would it be

:07:33.:07:37.

impossible to this invite him so soon after having invited him? --

:07:38.:07:44.

this invite. Other people have come who have been linked with a pressing

:07:45.:07:50.

their people and they have been welcomed so it is difficult to say

:07:51.:07:56.

his behaviour recently has put in beyond the pale with other visitors.

:07:57.:08:03.

Donald Trump will say a lot of the intelligentsia are criticising me

:08:04.:08:06.

but a lot of people would agree with me in Britain. You met people who

:08:07.:08:15.

were saying is that he is saying a lot of people are thinking but not

:08:16.:08:21.

saying. Even in the UK, he will say, there is support for these policies.

:08:22.:08:32.

Speaking of his golf courses, it has been said that Donald Trump wants to

:08:33.:08:40.

play nine holes of golf at Balmoral specifically with the Queen watching

:08:41.:08:47.

him. He has quite specific requests. The requests seem to be focused

:08:48.:08:55.

around creating an image. The great photograph of Ronald Reagan and the

:08:56.:09:00.

Queen on horses. Trump understands better than many people the power of

:09:01.:09:06.

image and his business since the mid-19 90s has been all about image

:09:07.:09:10.

rather than actually owning properties. He is aware of that and

:09:11.:09:18.

in a recent interview he is aware of his popularity rating so all this

:09:19.:09:25.

issues of image are very important and potentially in tax a lot of

:09:26.:09:29.

sense because it has been very successful for him. -- potentially

:09:30.:09:39.

makes a lot of sense. The Times have a story about drugs failure dealing

:09:40.:09:48.

a blow to dementia sufferers. This is one of those sad stories where

:09:49.:09:51.

they are saying they have been concentrating potentially on the

:09:52.:09:55.

wrong thing, in terms of the research, but it might be a mistake.

:09:56.:10:02.

They are saying they have been concentrating on a protein and all

:10:03.:10:09.

the research has been focused on that and they may have missed

:10:10.:10:16.

something else. Very sad. The FT talking about MBA graduate salaries

:10:17.:10:23.

rising in the fastest rate in a decade and it is a golden age for

:10:24.:10:28.

jobs, some jobs. Higher paying jobs are becoming ever more higher paid.

:10:29.:10:34.

It is also a reflection of the recovery of the financial. Financial

:10:35.:10:44.

services have come back, the bonuses have come back and maybe the data is

:10:45.:10:49.

a reflection of that and it also reflects the world we live in if you

:10:50.:10:54.

do not have a specialist skill you struggle to get a wage increase but

:10:55.:10:59.

if you are in a relatively narrow skill area, like bond trading or MBA

:11:00.:11:07.

person, or chief Executive, you tend to look out more than inflationary

:11:08.:11:16.

increases. Roger Federer one of the tennis in Australia. Are you not a

:11:17.:11:22.

fan of tennis? Are you a fan of the fact that at whatever age somebody

:11:23.:11:28.

is, there is always the chance to improve and do better and he has

:11:29.:11:34.

proven that at the age of 35 he can still... Be careful... He has proven

:11:35.:11:41.

that age is not a barrier and clearly it has to do with age and

:11:42.:11:47.

incredible hard work, sheer determination and champions prove

:11:48.:11:52.

why they are champions. I mean, it was said in a sense that Andy Murray

:11:53.:11:56.

could not get to the final because he would have had a good chance of

:11:57.:12:04.

winning. Obviously the form of Roger Federer has been very strong. Nobody

:12:05.:12:07.

would have had an easy run against him but it is great. I am not a

:12:08.:12:13.

major sport that myself, but I liked the fact that they championed stay

:12:14.:12:21.

the same for a longer time so I always rejoice that they are not

:12:22.:12:25.

constantly change every five years. It is very helpful for me. You just

:12:26.:12:41.

barely forgotten Boris Becker? LAUGHTER thank you so much for being

:12:42.:12:46.

with us and looking at the papers. That is it from us. Thank you so

:12:47.:12:52.

much to Jacqui Francis and Tom Bergin. Coming up next is the film

:12:53.:12:55.
