This edition: Christina Greer on the 2016 Election and America's Future

Episode Details

Original tape date: December 6, 2016.

First aired: December 19, 2016.

People are still asking: How did a candidate as tarnished and apparently unprepared as Donald Trump get elected president of the United States?
How did someone as capable and experienced as Hillary Clinton, whose popular vote advantage was more than 2 ½ million, manage to lose to such a candidate?
And what does a Donald Trump presidency portend for certain groups who, at the moment, are anxious, to say the least? Those groups include millions of women, immigrants, racial and ethnic minorities, America’s Muslim community and others.
Bob discusses these matters with guest Christina Greer, a professor of political science at Fordham University, and author of the book, Black Ethnics: Race, Immigration and the American Dream.
