So much writing on President Trump, and especially his business career, comes from journalists who aren’t businesspeople. What do they know about being hundreds of millions of dollars in debt? Conrad Black is a former press baron who sees Trump’s business life from a businessman’s (and a historian’s) perspective, and his new biography of the president puts Trump in a new light. How much hucksterism is good? Was there strategy behind Trump’s professional wrestling antics? And what about the president’s near-death experience with debt? Black talks about it all (and yes, he discusses the pardon).

    Trumpophobia! Love that neologism. I had not heard it before. Around here, it’s more likely to be stated as TDS. Thanks for the new word, Lord Black.

    Excellent interview as always.  Love Lord Black – in fact he is high on my list for a second husband. (ha ha)

    Great podcast! Great interview. Love the no-chit chat in the beginning. That’s become quite annoying to me generally even when it’s good! But it’s usually not good and uninteresting banter… Thanks again!
