As the reality of President Trump begins to sink in, the world is wondering what kinds of policies and actions will be championed by a Trump Administration. Were many of the candidate’s extreme proclamations merely talking points, as some supporters claimed? David Remnick sat down with the New Yorker staff writers Amy Davidson and George Packer to deconstruct Trump’s victory and to imagine what his Presidency will bring. Packer is the author of “The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America,” which explores the growing class divisions that fuelled Trump’s rise.
