    The election of Donald Trump signifies the beginning of a new era in US politics, but what can we expect of this billionaire businessman turned US president? And what of Obama's legacy - will the new president be able to transform the US' disastrous foreign policy record left behind by Obama? John Wight discusses this and more with Jim Jatras.

    On this week's Hard Facts, John sits down with former US diplomat and foreign policy expert, Jim Jatras, to discuss the significance of Donald Trump's election as the 45th President of the United States. How was a man with zero political experience able to end not one, but two political dynasties — Bush and Clinton — and what can America and the world expect from a Trump administration? They also discuss the legacy of the man he replaces, Barack Obama, with particular emphasis on the Obama administration's foreign policy record.

    Hard Facts is aired every Wednesday.  You can listen to other shows here.
