Rising Up With Sonali

Trump’s Presidency Has Unleashed More Hate

A wave of anti-Semitic threats and attacks appear to be part of a growing trend of right-wing verbal and physical violence that has infected the nation since Donald Trump took over the White House. We’ll speak with Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center. And, Abigail Dillen of Earthjustice joins us to discuss the recent Senate confirmation of Scott Pruitt as EPA head and what it means for the future of the climate. Finally, as the Democratic National Committee votes to elect new leadership this weekend, we’ll turn to Chuck Idelson from National Nurses United to discuss why Representative Keith Ellison’s leadership is exactly what the Democratic Party needs right now. Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
