Summary

Donald Trump put trade at the heart of his campaign to become President. He has promised to bring manufacturing jobs back to America, a message that was particularly powerful in America's Midwest - often referred to as the rust belt, where voters supported him in droves and helped him secure his narrow victory. But can he now deliver on his promise to bring back jobs, and what does `America First' mean for the rest of the world - including Britain? In the second of two programmes focusing on Donald Trump's economy, David Aaronovitch explores what the President's trade policies might mean in practice.
