David Frum is a writer at The Atlantic and the author of the 2018 New York Times bestseller, TRUMPOCRACY: The Corruption of the American Republic, his ninth book. In 2001-2002, he served as special assistant and speechwriter to President George W. Bush during and after the 9/11 attacks on the United States. Frum is a recognized intellectual leader of the American conservative movement. His first book, DEAD RIGHT, was praised by William F. Buckley in 1994 as "the most refreshing ideological experience in a generation" and by Frank Rich in the New York Times as "the smartest book written from the inside about the American conservative moment." His memoir of his service in the Bush White House, THE RIGHT MAN, was a New York Times bestseller in 2003. Frum has served as a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, as a trustee of the Republican Jewish Coalition, and as chairman of the board of trustees of Policy Exchange, the leading center-right think tank in the United Kingdom. A native of Canada, he was a driving force in the "Winds of Change" movement that reunited that country's splintered Conservative party in the early 2000s. In 2009-2012, Frum created and edited the FrumForum group website devoted to the modernization of the Republican party. More than a dozen young writers who started their careers on Frum's site have gone on to success in politics and journalism. Frum was one of the first and foremost conservative Republicans to sound the alarm about the challenge posed by the Trump presidency to US global leadership, open international trade, and democratic institutions. His prophetic 2017 cover story in the Atlantic, "How to Build an Autocracy," has been one of the most cited of the Trump years. Frum appears frequently on CNN, MSNBC, and the Australian, British, and Canadian Broadcasting Corporations. A profile in Esquire in December 2017 described Frum as "first among equals" in the conservative anti-Trump movement. Frum earned a BA and MA in history at Yale, then a JD at Harvard, where he served as president of the Harvard chapter of the Federalist society. He taught history Yale in 1986-87. Frum is now at work on his tenth book, about how to renew American world leadership after Trump. Frum is married to Danielle Crittenden Frum, a journalist, author, and podcaster.

David Frum is a Canadian-American political commentator and a senior editor at The Atlantic. He is the author of ten books, most recently TRUMPOCALYPSE: Restoring American Democracy (HarperCollins, 2020). His first book, Dead Right, won praise from William F. Buckley as “the most refreshing intellectual experience in a generation” and from Frank Rich in the New York Times as “the smartest book written from the inside about the American conservative movement.” He is a former speechwriter for President George W.

Nothing about Donald Trump's political career has been customary or predictable. So why would the outcome of his run for re-election be any different? Whatever else the election revealed, it seems to include his intention to remain a force to be reckoned with for the political establishments of both major parties and the American public. To discuss this unusual era in U.S. politics, we invite David Frum, staff writer at the Atlantic and author most recently of "Trumpocalypse: Restoring American Democracy."See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
