The Trump Phenomenon

I was one of the first people who realized that Trump’s campaign for President was the real deal. You can listen to the podcast I did with my father back in October 2015 for a sense of things from back then.

Because of that, City Journal editor Brian Anderson asked me to do a 10 Blocks podcast on the election. Here at the topics and questions we covered:

  • 0:00 – Introduction
  • 1:47 – How did Trump win?
  • 3:35 – What role did the opioid crisis play in Trump’s election?
  • 4:44 – What are your thoughts on JD Vance’s Hillbilly Elegy?
  • 7:50 – Can other politicians replicate what Trump has accomplished
  • 9:36 – What will Trump’s presidency mean for cities?
  • 11:48 – What will Trump’s presidency mean for black voters?
  • 13:32 – What are the potential pitfalls of a Trump administration?
