Donald Trump rode a tide of rage into office: rage at a "Washington elite" that he said had been ignoring the problems of "ordinary people" and failing to get anything done.

In so doing, he made big promises: to bring back jobs, put up walls, and, above all, to "make America great again."

But can he actually keep to any of it? Newsweek's Josh Lowe and Mirren Gidda picked five of his key pledges and joined our guests Sarah Churchwell, a chair of public humanities at the University of London, and Leslie Vinjamuri, an associate fellow at Chatham House, to work out what he can and can't do. 

Newsweek's Foreign Service is recorded and edited by Jordan Saville.
