As a speechwriter for George W. Bush, David Frum helped coin the term “axis of evil." Leading up to the 2016 election, Frum railed against the Republican party for failing to modernize and for ignoring problems like inequality and climate change. In his new book “Trumpocracy,” Frum focuses on the structural problems that allowed Trump to win, the danger he poses to democracy and how to remedy the situation. Frum joins us to discuss his book and the political news of the day.
