Donald Trump's Acceptance Speech and the Use of Fear as a Tool

Hosted by

Donald Trump's acceptance speech at the RNC last night was all about fear. After the attacks in Orlando and Nice, police killings in Dallas and Baton Rouge, Trump made a strong call for law and order. But do politicians create the fear, or does it exist already and it’s just tapped by politicians like Trump?
