New series. In the wake of Donald Trump's triumph in the US presidential election, Adam Smith examines past presidents who divided America even as they promised radical change. He begins in 1829 with Andrew Jackson, who caused a financial panic by dismantling the Bank of the United States and displayed a willingness to veto laws passed by Congress or ignore the courts.
