Bunker USA: Don’t write off the Trump cult
Saturday, 19 November
It’s official, Trump is running for President in 2024. Does anyone really want him to – or is it foolish to underestimate him? Julie Norman, Co-Director of the UCL Centre on US Politics, joins Jacob to tell us why calling Trump the underdog could play straight into his hands.
“As much as Trump gets leverage in promoting himself, bashing Biden also plays well with his base.”
“I think Trump knows that what is appealing about Trump is himself - and it's why some of the Trump backed candidates didn’t do so well. He has a cult of personality around him that is bigger than his children and the people around him.”
“Whether one loves or hates Trump it’s important not to discount him.”
