Election Aftermath, preparing for President Trump
In our inaugural episode, Jasen Lee and Amy Donaldson take a look at the national political landscape in the wake of Republican Donald Trump’s historic election as the 45th President of the United States. Our guest, Matthew Burbank, associate professor of political science at the University of Utah, weighs in on the discussion on what lies ahead.
How will the new POTUS handle the economy, jobs, the environment, healthcare? Will he make good on his promise to go after ISIS, take a hardline approach to immigration by deporting undocumented immigrants, round up Muslims, repeal Obamacare and build a wall on the border with Mexico.
Amy and Jasen talk about that and more on their new podcast, which aims to 4expand the conversation on issues around social justice, diversity, disagreement, and disenfranchisement. They talk about the need for a common, civil dialogue to help bridge the political divide made worse by this election as well as why some voters are feeling left out of the process.
