Americanswers is back!

In the latest edition of Americanswers, Miles Taylor and Katie Hill join us once more to answer your questions.

This week we look at some challenges from listeners about the evidence of social media’s polarising effect in the US, and whether we do enough to hear from Donald Trump’s supporters.

We also look at the foreign policy record of the former president as we assess whether the US was safer under his watch.

HOSTS: • Justin Webb, Radio 4 presenter • Marianna Spring, disinformation and social media correspondent

GUESTS: • Miles Taylor, former chief of staff at Department for Homeland Security • Katie Hill, former Democratic congresswoman
