Ep. 35: Ruth Ben-Ghiat Explains What Comes Next in Donald Trump's Authoritarian Assault on Democracy

Professor Ruth Ben-Ghiat is a professor of history and Italian studies at New York University and an expert on fascism and authoritarianism. She is the author of several books and her opinion essays and other writing have been featured by CNN, the Washington Post, The New Yorker, and the Atlantic.

Ben-Ghiat warns that societies often succumb to authoritarianism and fascism not in one dramatic moment – such as a military coup -- but gradually over time.

She also issues an ominous warning: Because Donald Trump is an authoritarian who is waiting for an opportune moment when he can declare a national emergency or other crisis and then suspend the rule of law and the Constitution.
