Donald Trump’s takeover of the White House is a dangerous escalation in a world of cascading crises, Klein asserts. She argues that Trump’s vision—a radical deregulation of the U.S. economy in the interest of corporations, an all-out war on “radical Islamic terrorism,” and sweeping aside climate science to unleash a domestic fossil fuel frenzy—will generate wave after wave of crises and shocks to the economy, to national security, and to the environment.
In her new book, No Is Not Enough, Naomi Klein explains that Trump, extreme as he is, is not an aberration but a logical extension of the worst and most dangerous trends of the past half-century. In exposing the malignant forces behind Trump’s rise, she puts forward a bold vision for a mass movement to counter rising militarism, nationalism, and corporatism in the U.S. and around the world.
Klein is in conversation with Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, who represents Washington’s 7th District.
