In an extended version of Carolyn Quinn's interview with Cardinal Vincent Nichols, the Head of the Catholic Church in England and Wales discusses President Trump's executive order temporarily banning refugees and people from seven Muslim countries from the US, the need for the UK government to do more for Syrian refugees, and the debate over President Trump's proposed State Visit.

Cardinal Nichols also warned about the dangers of social media, and spoke of the "need to recover that bit of self-discipline that doesn't just blurt out what I first think." He called for "self-restraint and self-denial", and the need to consider issues in a "more rounded way."
