Episode 109: Europe’s Migrant Quandary and Trump’s Fascism Question

 Relevant Reading:

Is Donald Trump a Fascist?
Jeffrey Herf

An Avoidable Catastrophe
Chris Deliso

Good afternoon, listeners! We have a great show for you this week as host Richard Aldous invites Jeffrey Herf to discuss whether or not Donald Trump is a fascist, before speaking with Chris Deliso about Europe’s migrant crisis.

First up, Jeffrey Herf, a distinguished university professor at the University of Maryland, College Park, argues that while Donald Trump isn’t a fascist, he certainly creates plenty of room for discomfort. Tune in to find out what Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have in common.

Then, journalist and Director of Chris Deliso explains what this weekend’s regional elections in Germany, in which the country’s anti-immigration party put up a strong showing, might mean for the continent’s ongoing migrant crisis. He describes how the problems posed by immigration in Europe can vary widely country to country, and explains how migration is monetized.
