Podcast of Ideas: Trump’s victory

Claire Fox, Geoff Kidder and Rob Lyons discuss the fallout from the US election.

After an extended summer break, the Podcast of Ideas is back with the Institute of Ideas team discussing Donald Trump’s shock victory in the US presidential race. What explains Trump’s appeal? Why was Clinton unable to inspire the voters? Are his supporters really just ‘a basket of deplorables’, as Clinton described them? And is the explosion of fear and outrage over Trump’s ascendancy to the White House just hysteria or is there genuine cause for concern?
