American Political History from the Founding Fathers to Donald Trump: Steve Lowe

"The question we ask is how did Americans get to be the way they are? So, we look at the events of the past both through the lens of the present and to see how they explain why the USA is the way it is today. This will help explain whether Trump is the logical outcome of that history or an exception that proves the rule."
