President Trump will not permit transgender people to serve

:00:00.:00:11.

in the US military in any capacity - because of the costs and disruption.

:00:12.:00:16.

The prospect of new US sanctions on Russia provokes reaction

:00:17.:00:22.

from Moscow to Berlin - but we're still waiting

:00:23.:00:24.

to see if the White House will back the bill.

:00:25.:00:28.

And it was one of the most shocking string of murders in US history.

:00:29.:00:32.

Nearly a century later - new light is being shed

:00:33.:00:34.

Yet again President Trump's early morning tweets

:00:35.:00:52.

Today this was the unexpected one about transgender

:00:53.:00:56.

"After consultation with my generals and military experts,

:00:57.:01:01.

"please be advised that the United States Government

:01:02.:01:03.

"will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve

:01:04.:01:06.

For more on today's announcement and the reaction to it

:01:07.:01:23.

I spoke a brief time ago with Eric Fanning, the first openly

:01:24.:01:26.

gay secretary of the army under President Obama.

:01:27.:01:30.

Eric Fanning, what is your reaction to President Trump overturning

:01:31.:01:33.

President Obama and banning transgender people from serving

:01:34.:01:37.

I'm disappointed, I think it's the wrong decision to have made.

:01:38.:01:42.

We already have, currently, thousands of transgender

:01:43.:01:45.

Americans serving in the military with distinction.

:01:46.:01:48.

And I think it was an important step of many to open up opportunity

:01:49.:01:51.

for service in the military for a number of important reasons.

:01:52.:01:56.

It aligns with core American values of equality and opportunity.

:01:57.:02:00.

And it helps ensure that we can recruit from the best and brightest

:02:01.:02:03.

However, President Trump says he consulted with generals

:02:04.:02:08.

and military experts, and he cites the tremendous medical

:02:09.:02:10.

costs and the disruption that having transgender people in the US

:02:11.:02:14.

Well, I don't know which generals and military leaders

:02:15.:02:20.

I spoke with many of them myself across all the services,

:02:21.:02:26.

and there were certainly a lot of questions and concerns,

:02:27.:02:29.

but there was a lot of support from moving forward as well

:02:30.:02:32.

because in many ways opening up service to transgender Americans

:02:33.:02:34.

in policy was just catching up with reality, and I haven't seen any

:02:35.:02:39.

good evidence to support the idea that this is going to be expensive.

:02:40.:02:43.

The two independent reports, Rand and the Palm Centre say there

:02:44.:02:47.

The president also says this is about focusing on victory,

:02:48.:02:55.

so he is raising the idea that it is a distraction trying

:02:56.:02:58.

to cater to the needs of transgender and the military.

:02:59.:03:00.

Well, I think that is an argument that has been used repeatedly over

:03:01.:03:05.

When Truman integrated the military 69 years ago to the day, by the way,

:03:06.:03:11.

this is the anniversary of that, when we repealed Don't Ask Don't

:03:12.:03:14.

Tell, when we opened all military positions,

:03:15.:03:17.

including combat positions, to women, and now with transgender

:03:18.:03:20.

we hear that argument over and over again.

:03:21.:03:22.

And Rand said that they anticipated, as they have said previously,

:03:23.:03:26.

minimum disruption to the force, and that is really short-sighted

:03:27.:03:35.

because there are tremendous long-term benefits

:03:36.:03:37.

But given what the president has said, what does this mean

:03:38.:03:40.

for the thousands of transgender members of the US military?

:03:41.:03:43.

Well, I think it's obviously very alarming for them.

:03:44.:03:45.

There are two parts to this issue, one was who should be allowed

:03:46.:03:50.

to assess who should be allowed to join the military, and we issued

:03:51.:03:53.

The second is what happens if you decide to transition once

:03:54.:03:57.

And we thought that we were at least secure on the issue of people

:03:58.:04:04.

in the military being able to serve because they had proven

:04:05.:04:07.

This is a far broader and more sweeping decision and policy change

:04:08.:04:12.

than we anticipated, to say, not only can you not join

:04:13.:04:15.

So he is telling thousands of people already wearing the uniform

:04:16.:04:20.

Do you think this means a return to the days

:04:21.:04:25.

of Don't Ask Don't Tell in the US military?

:04:26.:04:27.

I Don't Think That We Will Go All The Way Back To reinstitute

:04:28.:04:33.

The progress in these areas is never linear,

:04:34.:04:36.

and you have setbacks, but I think in general,

:04:37.:04:38.

year after year, we make more progress than we get pushed back,

:04:39.:04:41.

and I would have hoped that transgender service

:04:42.:04:43.

was safe because I think, by and large right now,

:04:44.:04:46.

it's largely an issue of who can meet the requirements,

:04:47.:04:48.

and then the establishment of medical community

:04:49.:04:50.

guidelines, but I think Don't Ask Don't Tell is safe.

:04:51.:04:55.

Eric Fanning, thank you so much for joining us.

:04:56.:04:57.

And the transgender announcement was one of many topics the president

:04:58.:05:02.

He unloaded once again on his Attorney General Jeff Sessions,

:05:03.:05:07.

who's under fire for recusing himself from

:05:08.:05:09.

It comes as the Senate is taking up legislation which would put more

:05:10.:05:15.

sanctions on Russia - the president hasn't said

:05:16.:05:17.

Well, luckily we have our resident political expert Ron Christie

:05:18.:05:21.

Let's start with the embattled Attorney General. Yet again the

:05:22.:05:32.

President was tweeting about him this morning. This time he was

:05:33.:05:36.

saying why didn't you replace the acting FBI director. Who is this

:05:37.:05:42.

damaging more? I think it hurts the president. The

:05:43.:05:47.

Attorney General was selected by the president, and now the president is

:05:48.:05:49.

going after one of the most senior people of his Cabinet. You say, why

:05:50.:05:54.

in the world would you do that? I think if you look back to the

:05:55.:05:58.

coverage of sessions, he was said to be a racist, all these terrible

:05:59.:06:02.

things about him, now I think it might be quite moved by the

:06:03.:06:05.

president to garner sympathy for Jeff Sessions.

:06:06.:06:10.

How will this end? Will cut back sessions sit it out.

:06:11.:06:18.

Yes, I think, I spoke to a person who had spoken to be resident Trump

:06:19.:06:24.

yesterday, saying that this is that his management style. If he

:06:25.:06:28.

continues to do this to Mr sessions, he will be more loyal and he will do

:06:29.:06:31.

the job that President Trump asked him to do.

:06:32.:06:37.

The president is serious with the Attorney General. The sanctions, the

:06:38.:06:44.

Bill will head to the President's desk soon, he has to sign it.

:06:45.:06:49.

He must sign it. It is important the United States send a signal to

:06:50.:06:52.

Vladimir Putin and Russia, if you try to interfere with our election,

:06:53.:06:57.

we will put sanctions on you as a result. As it relates to the

:06:58.:07:00.

president and Jeff Sessions, he should have fired him the day he

:07:01.:07:03.

said he was going to recuse himself or stop why did he wait all these

:07:04.:07:10.

months? He should have fired him replaced, this is probably

:07:11.:07:14.

President's own doing. We know the White House has problems

:07:15.:07:17.

with the sanctions Bill, is it possible that the president vetoes

:07:18.:07:22.

it? With Donald Trump you never know

:07:23.:07:27.

what people really do. This will express the sentiment of the

:07:28.:07:29.

American people will stop the American people do not like foreign

:07:30.:07:33.

powers interfering with our elections, and Donald Trump must

:07:34.:07:35.

sign this important piece of legislation.

:07:36.:07:39.

We know that the president loves to tweet. He is also tweeting about the

:07:40.:07:45.

transgender policy, he announced that ban on Twitter, Senator John

:07:46.:07:52.

McCain says it is not clear. Should you be announcing policy via

:07:53.:07:59.

Twitter much and Mark? You guessed it. This is something he

:08:00.:08:05.

should be speaking about camera. But a send something out via Twitter

:08:06.:08:08.

about something which will cause a social uproar in certain quarters, I

:08:09.:08:12.

don't understand how he does business with Twitter.

:08:13.:08:17.

What about the substance of it? Even a Conservative Republican is saying

:08:18.:08:21.

we should not be discriminating against anyone. Is it good politics,

:08:22.:08:28.

this transgender band? Good politics, no. 99.7% of people

:08:29.:08:36.

are not transgender, in America, and certainly when I was an Army officer

:08:37.:08:40.

many decades ago, they did not ask me about sexual orientation or my

:08:41.:08:44.

social views, they asked me if I was willing to put on the uniform and

:08:45.:08:49.

serve my country. And so I do believe that there are many in the

:08:50.:08:51.

military who think this is a distraction.

:08:52.:08:55.

Thank you so much joining us. Good to see you.

:08:56.:08:57.

If you live in the UK, you won't be able to buy

:08:58.:09:00.

a new diesel or petrol car after 2040 - as the government

:09:01.:09:03.

The new plan follows a ruling by judges, that ministers have to do

:09:04.:09:08.

Britain's move follows a similar announcement in France,

:09:09.:09:12.

with politicians, at least in theory, eager to

:09:13.:09:14.

consign traditional cars to the history books.

:09:15.:09:16.

We have come a long way in terms of design, but for 100 years we have

:09:17.:09:26.

been relying on vehicles with an internal combustion engine,

:09:27.:09:28.

Several major car-makers, including BMW, Volkswagen and Volvo,

:09:29.:09:35.

have already announced ambitious plans for electric cars,

:09:36.:09:37.

seeing them as a key way of tackling air pollution.

:09:38.:09:42.

And now the government is signalling the end of petrol and diesel engines

:09:43.:09:45.

in the UK with a ban on sales by 2040.

:09:46.:09:53.

We have to get rid of petrol and diesel cars off our roads

:09:54.:09:57.

if we're going to make sure not only that we deal with the health

:09:58.:10:00.

problems that air pollution causes, but also that we meet our

:10:01.:10:03.

And the good news is that the car industry is already

:10:04.:10:06.

It is part of a ?3 billion air quality strategy that also includes

:10:07.:10:10.

?255 million to help local authorities cut pollution.

:10:11.:10:12.

It will mean a ban on sales and production of new petrol

:10:13.:10:15.

or diesel vehicles in the UK, as well as a consultation

:10:16.:10:18.

The move follows a similar pledge earlier this month

:10:19.:10:22.

by President Macron of France, where the ban will also be

:10:23.:10:26.

Campaigners are likely to complain that the government has not gone

:10:27.:10:32.

far enough or fast enough, while Labour is saying nearly

:10:33.:10:35.

40 million people are living in areas with illegal levels of air

:10:36.:10:38.

pollution, and action is needed now and not in 23 years' time.

:10:39.:10:48.

And joining me now is David Shepardson, who covers

:10:49.:10:50.

David, we have got these moves in Britain to get rid of diesel and

:10:51.:11:00.

petrol cars by 2040, following moves in France. Is the future going to be

:11:01.:11:05.

electric cars? Must admit, the question is how long

:11:06.:11:10.

it will take to get there. 23 years is a long time, but auto companies

:11:11.:11:15.

are making investments. Volvo are going to start in 2019, no longer

:11:16.:11:21.

build traditional cars. This is the direction, but there are a lot of

:11:22.:11:25.

concerns about the industry, the infrastructure, is it ready for such

:11:26.:11:29.

a big shift? We would have to have plug-in points

:11:30.:11:33.

all over the place for electric cars. Does that infrastructure exist

:11:34.:11:37.

anywhere? In the UK, there are 1200 charging

:11:38.:11:42.

points. But you need tens of thousands if you're going to need a

:11:43.:11:49.

rapid ramp up. Only 1% of US vehicle sales are electric cars.

:11:50.:11:57.

We know that President Ron is taking the US out of the climate change

:11:58.:12:01.

accord. How do you see the market developing in the US? -- President

:12:02.:12:09.

Trump. Billions of dollars are being spent,

:12:10.:12:13.

but at the moment the shift is away from cars to bigger vehicles. At

:12:14.:12:20.

companies will continue to roll out electric vehicles as batteries get

:12:21.:12:26.

better. You will be less concerned about running out of juice. They are

:12:27.:12:32.

not moving away from electric vehicles but in the short-term

:12:33.:12:35.

focused on bigger and more powerful vehicles.

:12:36.:12:40.

We're seeing moves by cities all over the world running to ban diesel

:12:41.:12:46.

cars from city centres by 2025. RUC in anything like that happening in

:12:47.:12:48.

the US? You have seen companies move away

:12:49.:12:54.

from diesel entirely. Boxlike, Mercedes-Benz dropped plans to sell

:12:55.:13:02.

diesels -- Volkswagen. Chrysler, other companies, the Volkswagen

:13:03.:13:07.

investigation is going on. Companies are moving away from diesel, but in

:13:08.:13:12.

the short term they are pushing electric vehicles. The point to a

:13:13.:13:16.

certain extent, Tesla is leading the push.

:13:17.:13:21.

What is it going to be like for consumers driving electric cars

:13:22.:13:24.

rather than the traditional gas guzzler?

:13:25.:13:29.

The actual performance of electric cars is better, faster 0- 60. You're

:13:30.:13:35.

getting used to plugging in your cell phones everywhere. Once you get

:13:36.:13:40.

into the habit by the wheel, there is really no difference. Will there

:13:41.:13:43.

be enough places to charge us to mark with fast charging, you can get

:13:44.:13:50.

fully charged in ten minutes. No longer than it takes to fill your

:13:51.:13:54.

car up with gasoline. Where are we going to get enough

:13:55.:13:58.

gasoline from to power these cars? We will make sure people will charge

:13:59.:14:03.

night. There are huge long-term implications going from the 85,000

:14:04.:14:07.

vehicles sold this year to millions of vehicles, and what happens if we

:14:08.:14:13.

have serious grid problems? It will require more problem -- money,

:14:14.:14:19.

infrastructure, companies like false wagon -- Volkswagen are going to

:14:20.:14:25.

spend millions on charging stations will stop. Is 2040 realistic, is the

:14:26.:14:32.

question. Thank you for joining us.

:14:33.:14:35.

More than 10,000 people in the south of France have been

:14:36.:14:37.

forced to leave their homes and campsites overnight,

:14:38.:14:39.

to escape rapidly spreading wildfires.

:14:40.:14:41.

Many had to spend the night in public buildings,

:14:42.:14:43.

Efforts to contain the fires continue, with aircraft dumping

:14:44.:14:46.

The raging power of the fires was at its most terrifying doing the night.

:14:47.:14:54.

This was Bormes-les-Mimosas, West of St Tropez, where hillsides

:14:55.:14:58.

were engulfed by the burning shrubs and trees.

:14:59.:15:02.

Four hours, it swept across the countryside

:15:03.:15:04.

Thousands of people, including British tourists,

:15:05.:15:11.

were forced out of campsites and other homes.

:15:12.:15:15.

At about midnight we were then woken up.

:15:16.:15:16.

I just looked up, and 180 degrees of my vision,

:15:17.:15:19.

it was like Dante's Inferno, it was, you know, it was

:15:20.:15:22.

You know, it was an amazing and very, very scary sight to see.

:15:23.:15:29.

The sheer force of the fires were caught

:15:30.:15:32.

Strong winds gave them an unstoppable energy, and many

:15:33.:15:38.

Even the 4000 firefighters and soldiers sent in could not get

:15:39.:15:44.

The fires led to a huge evacuation of ten thousand people,

:15:45.:15:51.

They were told to spend the night on nearby beaches out in the open.

:15:52.:16:02.

The morning brought no let up in the fires.

:16:03.:16:07.

Some tourists were far enough away to continue their holiday,

:16:08.:16:10.

but the lushness of their scenery now replaced by a menacing infernal.

:16:11.:16:16.

but the lushness of their scenery now replaced by a menacing inferno.

:16:17.:16:19.

In other places, all that was left was a vast, scorched

:16:20.:16:21.

landscape, an area decimated across 15 square miles.

:16:22.:16:29.

TRANSLATION: We beat out the flames with shovels,

:16:30.:16:31.

we did all we could until the fire was put out.

:16:32.:16:34.

We contained it until the firemen came.

:16:35.:16:35.

19 aircraft, including ten water bombers, have been brought in,

:16:36.:16:43.

with the French authorities asking other European governments

:16:44.:16:46.

These fires have been burning for two days now,

:16:47.:16:55.

and we are seeing fires on hills all around this area.

:16:56.:16:57.

We're also seeing aircraft, helicopters, laden with water,

:16:58.:16:59.

trying to put them out, but at the moment they do not

:17:00.:17:02.

seem to be able to bring them under control.

:17:03.:17:09.

Temperatures here are in the 30s, it is sunny, and the winds shown

:17:10.:17:12.

A combustible, deadly mixture that will continue to threaten this area.

:17:13.:17:24.

The parents of the terminally ill baby Charlie Gard,

:17:25.:17:27.

have given up the fight, for their son to die at home.

:17:28.:17:29.

At the High Court lawyers accepted, that he should be

:17:30.:17:32.

But there's still no agreement on when the 11-month-old's life

:17:33.:17:38.

The BBC's Lisa Hampele joins us with the latest.

:17:39.:17:42.

The judge has made an order. He is going to rule that Charlie

:17:43.:17:58.

will have to go to a hospice and he will have his ventilator removed at

:17:59.:18:01.

the hospice and be allowed to die. He said it has been three and a half

:18:02.:18:07.

months, and when he first ruled that Charlie may be suffering, he may be

:18:08.:18:12.

in pain. Nobody knows, they cannot tell if he is awake or asleep, he is

:18:13.:18:17.

unable to move, he is kept alive by a ventilator, and he has serious

:18:18.:18:20.

irreversible brain damage. Today, the court started at 2pm British

:18:21.:18:24.

time this afternoon, Charlie's mother Connie arrived, his father

:18:25.:18:30.

has been at his bedside in London's famous children's hospital, Rick

:18:31.:18:37.

Ormond Street. The judge finally waited all afternoon for a doctor to

:18:38.:18:39.

arrive here because the family pleaded for someone to come forward

:18:40.:18:46.

who was a paediatric, intensive care doctor, who could oversee treatment

:18:47.:18:50.

in a hospice or at home for Charlie so that he could have longer. The

:18:51.:18:55.

site today has not been about where he will die, but how long he will

:18:56.:19:00.

have 1's the ventilator is removed. So the family conceded early on

:19:01.:19:04.

today that he will not be able to die at home. Tomorrow, they have got

:19:05.:19:10.

tomorrow to find an intensive care paediatric doctor to come forward.

:19:11.:19:16.

They pleaded again tonight, that is looking highly unlikely, it did not

:19:17.:19:20.

happen today, the doctor we waited for all afternoon turned up in

:19:21.:19:25.

court. It turned out he was simply a family GP not suitable to oversee

:19:26.:19:30.

this. So Charlie is highly likely to be taken to a hospice in the next

:19:31.:19:34.

few days. We will not be allowed to tell you where this hospice is and

:19:35.:19:37.

where he is going to die, and how many hours, that is a private

:19:38.:19:41.

matter. It would be in contempt of court to report that.

:19:42.:19:44.
