We Will Build Mexico Wall, Says Trump

January 25th, 2017

Episode 938 of 1091 episodes

President Trump prepares to fulfill his election pledge to build a wall on the US-Mexico border. We get reaction to the news from Luis De La Calle, a former Mexican trade negotiator. And we reflect on the first few days of a Trump presidency with economist Irwin Stelzer of the Hudson Institute. Also in the programme, cyber thieves in Taiwan managed to empty cash machines at the click of a mouse. We hear more from Nick Palmer of the Moscow cyber security company Group IB. Plus a British parliamentary report has concluded that women experience widespread discrimination when it comes to dress codes at work. Emma Bell is professor of management at Keele University in the UK, and tells us whether she agrees. (Picture: There is a barrier along parts of the US-Mexico border. Picture credit: Getty Images.)
