Brazil election campaign turmoil, Inside Trump's White House, Sweden's vote

The World This Week looks at tensions in Brazil's election campaign, where far-right candidate Bolsonaro has been stabbed during a rally. This follows his possible opponent Lula being barred from running earlier this week. Our panel also discusses Donald Trump's rage at his critics, both overt and covert - following Bob Woodward's new book and an anonymous op-ed in the NYT. We also discuss the Swedish election this weekend and its significance for Europe's Green movement.

Produced by Charles WENTE and Tommaso MAZZANTI.
