The Prospect podcast #44—Where “America First” came from

Historian Sarah Churchwell talks to Prospect about Donald Trump and her new book

By Prospect Team  

This week the Prospect team is joined by esteemed writer Sarah Churchwell. Churchwell’s new book Behold, America charts the origins of Donald Trump’s America First approach, which goes back much further than you’d think. She also asks: have we lost sight of the fact that equality was part of the American dream?

Before we get to that, the Prospect staff discuss what’s new in politics and culture.
