Feb 10, 2020

On this edition of Your Call, we speak with Andrea Bernstein, co-host of the award-winning podcast, Trump, Inc., about her new book, American Oligarchs: The Kushners, the Trumps, and the Marriage of Money and Power.

Bernstein argues that in building and maintaining their dynastic wealth, the Trump and Kushner families came to embody the rising nationalism and inequality that has pushed the US to the brink of oligarchy. What questions do you have about these families and their rise to power?
