The tech industry was a vocal opponent of Donald Trump during the election campaign, but might some of the biggest tech companies actually benefit from his presidency? We speak to Silicon Valley tech commentator Larry Magid about what they can expect. Also, Alex Steffen, an American futurist who writes and speaks about sustainability and the future of the planet, tells us what he thinks Mr Trump's presidency will mean for America's growing renewable energy sector, given that Mr Trump is a big supporter of the coal industry and has expressed doubts about climate change. And the BBC's Regan Morris reports from Los Angeles on women and their support for President-elect Trump.
