Donald Trump lays out a series of promises in his first speech to Congress. But will he stay true to his word?
The House of Lords is set to give the Government its first defeat on the Article 50 Brexit bill, and it's over the issue of protecting the rights of EU nationals. Keir Starmer has warned Labour has no prospect of election victory unless it changes direction. So is this sounding like more opposition against Jeremy Corbyn? Moving to the US, Donald Trump has laid out a series of promises in his first speech to Congress. Georgie Frost was joined by Billy Bambrough, Editor of economics and business website Verdict.co.uk to discuss all this and more political headlines of the morning.
