The Economist: All Audio
Feb 21, 2017 There are big questions facing the Trump administration about its approach to national security. On Monday, President Trump named Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster to be his new national security adviser. McMaster has been critical of how the Bush administration handled the first days of the Iraq war, and his views could lead to a change of tactic in the region. On this episode of Indivisible, hosts Kai Wright and the Economist's John Prideaux take calls from Trump voters on whether they still have confidence in the President’s ability to keep us safe at home -- and abroad. Karen DeYoung, senior national security correspondent for the Washington Post, will discuss the new national security advisor and the leaks coming out of the intelligence community. Plus, on this President's Day, Harvard historian and New Yorker writer Jill Lepore will talk about President Trump’s role in American myth making and how the story of America’s founding mission has changed over time.
