This week Donald Trump announced his candidacy for the presidency of the United States in 2024.
He is an early entry to the race and his announcement came in the wake of mid term elections in which the Republican party was expected to do much better.
So does Trump have a good chance of making one of the greatest comebacks in US political history? Where now for his bogus claim that the 2020 election was stolen from him?
And what will his candidacy do to the Republican party but also the growing chasm in US politics that is seeping into everyday life?
This week’s guest on the podcast is presidential historian, Robert Schmuhl, who is emeritus professor at the University of Notre Dame and Adjunct Professor in the School of Law and Government in DCU.
