Trump, the ‘law and order’ candidate

Hosted by

In the wake of the shootings of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge, Donald Trump has been calling himself “the law and order candidate.” We discuss the roots of that slogan from Barry Goldwater and Richard Nixon in the 1960s. Will that be a successful tactic for the Republican nominee? And what will it mean for the recent bipartisan push for criminal justice reform?
