Episode 13 - Trump: Twitter Dangers, Conflict of Interests and Cuba
On this 13th episode we discuss Trump and his pugnacious relationship with the media. We’ll specifically focus on how Twitter has not only become Trump’s best friend, but a transformative tool for politicians. How will journalists confront this new media evolution. I speak to Eli Stokols (1:45), a national politics reporter for Politico.com about this very topic. Also, should liberal Americans really be worried about Donald Trump’sconflict of interests with businesses and the Oval Office? How will it affect their lives? Alex Shepard (15:12), news editor at The New Republic gives us insights on what could go wrong. And finally, Fidel Castro died this past week and Trump has already vowed to terminate the Cuba/US relations if he doesn’t get what he wants from them. Spanish director Olatz Pérez Garmendia (22:26), who’s new HBO documentary about Cuba is out this week, weighs in on the harm of Trump ending the new alliance.
