Donald Trump’s infrastructure plan has been riddled right from the start with accusations of secrecy, conflicts of interest, and more. Just days after he demanded Congress produce a bill generating $1.5 trillion to fund new infrastructure, we’ll spend today’s show examining what his plan entails. My guest Charisma Troiano of the group Democracy Forward will join us. She’ll also discuss a lawsuit against Trump over his infrastructure council, and a new report called Blueprint for Cronyism. Then, Gene Sharp the pioneering thinker and writer on non-violent resistance has died. The 90-year old was known for his powerful research and tools for populations to transform dictatorships into democracies. I had interviewed Gene Sharp in 2011 and today, in light of the need in the US to strengthen our democracy we’ll re-air that interview.
