On this week’s edition of World View, Suzanne Lynch reports from Washington, DC, on another eventful, confounding week in Donald Trump’s America.

She explains why a new ban on travel to the US from certain Muslim-majority countries is likely to be more robust than January’s executive order, which was struck down in court.

She also outlines what is known about Mr Trump’s allegation that his phone was tapped by former president Barack Obama.

Also joining the podcast are our Berlin and Paris correspondents, Derek Scally and Lara Marlowe, who discuss the upcoming elections in Germany and France that could transform the face of European politics for decades.

They ask the question: has the high-water mark of right-wing populism been reached yet?
