Rising Up With Sonali

Trump Is Alienating His Business Allies

Donald Trump has abandoned his Advisory Councils after they began hemorrhaging corporate CEO members in the wake of his Charlottesville defense of Nazis. On today’s show, Nicole Carty of the group SumOfUs will explain what the development means. Then, staying on Charlottesville, we’ll tackle the question: do hate groups that promise violence have the right of free speech when public safety is at stake? Corey Brettschneider will be our guest – he’s the author of When the State Speaks, What Should It Say: How Democracies Can Protect Expression and Promote Equality. Finally, author and historian Betsy Hartmann joins us to discuss her new book, which is so relevant in these times. It’s called The America Syndrome: Apocalypse, War, and Our Call To Greatness.

Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
