    New Times#6: The two Donald Trumps

    What kind of Donald Trump will the world see in 2017? Will we get a tantrum-prone president who uses Twitter to stir up diplomatic discord, or will a more strategic version emerge who listens to his advisers and seeks guidance from friends such as Henry Kissinger? In this episode the academic and author John Bew tells Serena Kutchinsky and George Eaton why he thinks we are entering a new, very masculine, age of 19th century-style power politics. (Serena Kutchinsky, John Bew, George Eaton)
