Episode 176

What part did Twitter and its 140 characters play in propelling Donald Trump to the US presidency and what could we learn from it? We ask Peter Oborne, coauthor of ‘How Trump thinks: His tweets and the birth of a new political language’. Then, Iranian voters will be asking what external threats might possibly be awaiting them. Could Donald Trump’s campaign pledge to “rip up” the 2016 Accord move them toward a more hardline conservative government or will they stick with the reformist agenda of the current Rouhani administration? We invited Catherine Shakdam, political analyst and writer on the Middle East, for her thoughts.
