http://democracynow.org – Seventy-five days ago today, Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. Trump has expanded U.S. military operations in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Somalia, while resuming arms sales to Bahrain. At the United Nations, the Trump administration led a boycott of U.N. talks to ban nuclear weapons, while pushing for the United States to expand its own nuclear arsenal. Trump picked climate deniers to head the Environmental Protection Agency and the Energy Department, while slashing the EPA’s programs to combat climate change. He’s also attempted unsuccessfully to ban refugees and people from majority-Muslim nations from entering the U.S., and to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. For more on President Trump’s first 75 days, we speak with world-renowned political dissident, linguist and author Noam Chomsky. His new book, out today, is titled “Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 Principles of Concentration of Wealth & Power.”
