‘Biden is a tool of the warfare state, Trump won’t end forever wars in a 2nd term’ (David Stockman)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to David Stockman, former director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan and author of the book ‘Trump’s War on Capitalism.’ He discusses the myths surrounding the ‘strong MAGA economy’ under Donald Trump and why economic performance under him was actually weak, Trump’s irresponsibility in printing more money and increasing inequality in the United States, why Biden is a ‘tool of the warfare state’ and why Donald Trump doesn’t have the capability to end the forever wars and reign in military spending in a potential second term. He also discusses the broken US immigration system, why the military-industrial complex’s grip on US politics continues to prevail, why he backs Robert F. Kennedy’s campaign to become President of the United States, and much more.
