Coming up in a moment, The Papers.
That's all from us, good night.
Welcome to our look ahead to what
the papers will bring in the
morning. Steve Hawkes is the Deputy

London stock exchange after eight

The legal team for Michael Stone,
convicted of murdering a mother and
daughter in Kent in 1996, claim
another man, Levi Belfield, has made
a confession to the murders while
imprisoned. He has since denied that
Let's start with the FT. The
coverage of what Donald Trump has
Donald Trump ended
up retweeting some incredibly
offensive videos. But also
retweeting them from an account
which belongs to Britain First. It
is the deputy leader of that
organisation who was actually jailed
recently because... Accused, I
should say, I don't know if he was
imprisoned, but accused of hurling
abuse at a woman in a hijab in
Luton. It's nasty. It's a group that
has no standing in British society.
Donald Trump goes and retweets these
horrible videos. It has attracted
quite a strong response from Downing
Street where Theresa May has said
that it is wrong for the president
to have done this. We have seen a
few other cabinet members in the
last couple of hours tweeting strong
condemnation, as well.
Clearly a lot
of people, they are extremely
unhappy about it, but it's
interesting now to see where Cabinet
here is beginning to out about it.
In all of the papers tomorrow you
have the line from Downing Street
which is quite strong, it says it's
wrong for the president to have done
this. Donald Trump is important to
Britain in the post-Brexit world.
It'll be interesting to see tomorrow
what Theresa May does. She has a
press conference in Jordan. I wonder
if she will address it...
Definitely. We've been
waiting all week for Donald Trump to
comment on Prince Harry and Meghan
Markle, but he endorses a hate
fuelled group. The things they say
are abhorrent. But why is he doing
this? He doesn't care about the
collateral damage here. In America
there is a close election in Alabama
at the moment. The Republicans are
fighting with the Democrats. He has
an issue of wanting to stop children
immigrants from getting a deal to
stay in America. You wonder if he's
playing to his base again. The
collateral damage it causes around
the world are so severe for his
domestic problems. He's the leader
of the free world. We want him to do
a with North Korea to stop nuclear
war. Instead of that he's doing
We can show Sajid Javid's
tweet. That struck you breath when
you saw it in the office. -- struck
Yes. He said I refused to
let it go and say nothing. Contrast
that with the reaction of the people
around Donald Trump at the White
House. When it was mentioned, and
this is the FT story, that when this
question was raised Sarah Huckabee
Sanders, Donald Trump smack a
spokesperson said whether it is a

job is to promote strong border
security and strong national
security. What a pity you cannot do

Hold that thought.

he's meant to be a centrist leader.
It could still be done. I don't see
how Donald Trump could possibly come
in the next few months without there
being mass demonstrations in the
street, which he will want to avoid.
That would require the British
Government to say we don't want you
Which puts them in a tricky
position. This is one of our
strongest allies. We are meant to
find a way of working together for
the good of the world. And here is
this person who just constantly
jeopardises those relationships.

people to see that he hasn't moved
away from his campaigning mode. It's
just got worse, it seems, in the way
he has behaved in office.

front of the times. Various aspects

about to move. It is high time it
did. We heard the story about us,
the UK side, being prepared to offer

The Irish border, if you ask me, was
always going to be one of the
difficult issues. Because of all the
sensitivities involved in the Irish
political system. What the border
was going to look like, etc. This
story is now quoting several sources
to say that it is very likely there
is going to be a transition deal by
January, after which we can move on
to talking about future trade. It
does seem like whatever was

worked wonders, and might have moved
things forward a little bit. The

Times has said?
It's a big
breakthrough. You have British
business saying we need a transition
deal by January. That is so people
can start moving production and
staff overseas. This is huge. The
Irish peace of the jigsaw has three
issues. Ireland is the most
controversial. In the 20 minutes

That will still raise concerns about
how we are going to be moving
forward during that transition
period. That's what businesses have
always wanted to know. If you have a
standstill transition arrangement
you will only be moving the cliff
edge further ahead at some point.
You aren't going to avoid it. There
