On Today's Show

On GPS at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN:

First, Fareed offers his Take on meritocracy – and why he believes it's an idea that's under siege from left and right.

"On the right, many of Donald Trump's supporters see it as a code word for an out-of-touch establishment that looks down on ordinary, hard-working Americans. Here in Britain, Theresa May's call for a more meritocratic society was assailed on the left by those who saw it as a concept that breeds elitism and inequality," Fareed says.
 
Next, Fareed hosts a London-based panel to discuss President Trump, his approach to US allies, immigration, and more. Joining Fareed are Zanny Minton Beddoes, editor-in-chief of The Economist, George Osborne, editor of the Evening Standard and previously Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Alastair Campbell, former spokesman for Tony Blair and author of "Winners: And How They Succeed."

Also on the show: Fareed speaks with Shola Mos-Shogbamimu – a lawyer and co-organizer of London's Women's March. She is also leading an anti-Trump protest that is expected to greet President Trump on the day he arrives in the UK.
 
Plus: Fareed is joined by Lucy Kellaway, a former columnist with the Financial Times. After three decades with the paper, Kellaway decided to leave journalism to become a teacher. What was behind her career change? And why does she believe teaching is harder than she thought? Fareed discusses this and more.
