Trump's closed border policy, France's #MeToo row, Merkel still standing

Our panel of journalists look at Donald Trump denying that he asked Democratic lawmakers "why are we having all these people coming from shithole countries"? We also look at the controversial open letter, signed by 100 prominent French women, which criticised the #MeToo movement; Germany preparing for another Grand Coalition; and French President Emmanuel Macron's visit to China.
