In his first year and a half, Trump falls out spectacularly with some of America’s oldest allies as he relentlessly pursues his ‘America First’ agenda.
From withdrawing from the Paris climate accord to cosying up to Vladimir Putin, Trump shatters the status quo. He even threatens the most critical of all American alliances. As former UK foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt says, ‘Nato was probably in the greatest peril it’s ever been in its history.’
With first-hand accounts from key players, the episode takes us inside crucial meetings and summits where the US president shocks his counterparts.
In episode two, Trump turns to the Middle East, where he takes America to the brink of war with Iran, shocks the world by pulling troops out of Syria, and announces breakthrough agreements between Israel and Arab states.
With first-hand accounts from key players - including rare interviews with top Iranian officials - the episode takes us inside the critical moments as Trump turns US foreign policy in the region on its head.
Trump Takes On The World begins Wednesday 10th February at 9pm on BBC Two.
