Donald Trump's presidency has been one of the most controversial in modern times.

He has polarised opinion on a range of issues with promises to cut taxes, create jobs, repeal Obamacare and build a wall with Mexico.

He has pulled out of the Paris climate change accord and taken on the North Korean leadership. All this on top of claims of chaos in the White House.

President Trump has - for better or worse - been shaking things up in Washington.

You told us what you thought of Trump's America, one year since his election to the most powerful position in the world.

This important and topical town hall discussion was recorded for broadcast on BBC World TV, radio and online reaching millions of viewers in North America and around the world.
