Owen Fairclough reports for CGTN from our Washington, D.C. office.

From election trails to Brexit, (nearly) Grexit and even Africa’s first World Cup, Owen has been a reporter for nearly 20 years in the UK, France and now in the United States, trying to make sense of perhaps the most defining story of our times: the Trump administration and the rise of populism.
