Donald Trump is a man few outside of the US took seriously. His run to the presidency was one which many believed would peter out or combust in spectacular fashion as a result of the mogul’s ego and outspoken, ‘unspun’ statements.
In this programme, veteran inquisitor Jeremy Paxman looks at the impact of Trump’s election win and how his shift from the established organs of state to an inner cabal of family and business associates is redefining America’s position in the world and the White House’s working relationship with Congress and the Senate.
As the unpredictable Trump approaches his milestone hundredth day in office, Jeremy Paxman crosses the US for a wry and searching examination of the whirlwind past three months. He’ll attempt to make sense of the Trump agenda – and ask if it even makes sense to the man himself. Jeremy asks what America – and the world – will look like after four years of Trump, and wonders if America’s unlikely president might even have his sights set on four more.
