10:41 pm
to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are kate proctor, political correspondent at the london evening standard, and journalist and broadcasterjohn stapleton. tomorrow's front pages, starting with. .. the times splashes donald trump's stark "fire and fury" warning to north korea, in which he takes aim at the country's ballistic missile programme. a storm warning makes the front page of the express — they expect a month's rain to fall tomorrow. the financial times focuses on a warning from the financial watchdog
10:42 pm
to the financial world of a cliff edge brexit. the metro also focuses on the american president's fiery threat to pyongyang over nuclear weapons. stamp duty stopping people from downsizing, is the claim in the daily telegraph. meanwhile, the daily mail reports 30,000 attempts to get into the uk from france this year. let's start with the metro. john, get us going. the words are very like trump, but sinister. sinister, even for trump. it will concern people in the us as well is right around the world. the washington post have revealed that north korea has the capability of miniaturising a nuclear warhead to go on their anti—ballistic missile is. way, way ahead of expectations. the washington post quoting defence
10:43 pm
sources in america, says that is now a real possibility and we should bearin a real possibility and we should bear in mind that these missiles could apparently beat denver or chicago. so grave concern in the united states and the response from mrtrump who is united states and the response from mr trump who is at one of his golfing venues, saying that if they've continued to threaten the united states, the united states will respond with fire and fury such as the world has never seen. even for him, that is terrifying language. it does sound like that, but we have got used to it and the almost immune to his outburst. the american military have made a huge plate of making sure they are on the border of south korea. they have let the media in and done a lot of training and showed the cameras that they are ready. that is difficult —— different to the range of some of these weapons. and i was reading something a few minutes before we came on which it said that the
10:44 pm
american system of defence against these bonds is not as smart as it might be. it strikes me that donald trump is so often using language that could send shivers but also a sense of history seems to get forgotten. what does he mean "as the world has never seen"? we have seen terrible things at the end of the first world —— second world war, and it seemed to me that he was shooting from the hip. absolutely. mutually assured destruction is what we have learned to expect and deal with and thatis learned to expect and deal with and that is what is in your mind when you talk about nuclear weapons. so it feels so carefree and so worrying to talk about it in that way. what do we do about it? it is a problem. lots of newspapers have that on their front lots of newspapers have that on theirfront page. the lots of newspapers have that on their front page. the times, lots of newspapers have that on theirfront page. the times, i want to talk about something else. home of cleek secretary backs met chief
