When Jon Sopel stood up to question President Trump at a press conference in February 2017, Trump, on hearing that Sopel represents the BBC, uttered “Here’s another beauty”. Since then it’s been downhill all the way. So much so that Jon Sopel now believes we need to start thinking of the USA as a truly foreign country, hence his new book, If Only They Didn’t Speak English. Jon Sopel’s distinguished career at the BBC includes stints as the Paris Correspondent and Chief Political Correspondent. He has been North America Editor since 2014. His lucid, impassioned reports from a country we no longer know are required viewing.
