Today marks not just the inauguration of Donald Trump, but the departure of Barack Obama. What legacy does he leave on the international stage?

In a special interview with Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor of The Nation magazine, we asked her about the impact of Obama's foreign policy decisions.

Obama was "more continuity than change", vanden Heuvel tells UpFront host Mehdi Hasan.

"This country desperately needs a different foreign policy," says vanden Heuvel. "One in which the United States isn't the policeman of the world. One that doesn't make regime change an American foreign policy."

"I don't think presidents need hubristic foreign policy doctrines. I do think 'don't do stupid stuff' is not a bad one at this time. But unfortunately, I think the United States continues to do stupid stuff."
