    Gerald Horne, Professor of History at the University of Houston, TX, author, historian, and researcher, joins us to discuss the election.  Former Vice President Joe Biden holds on to a razor thin lead and President Donald Trump advances a number of legal challenges as a divided America awaits the outcome.

    Margaret Kimberley, Black Agenda Report Editor and Sr. Columnist and Danny Haiphonge (Hi-Fong), Author of American Exceptionalism and American Innocence: A People’s History of Fake News, join us to discuss the US Presidential election. They discuss an Anti-war.com article that analyzes the commonality of Donald Trump and Joe Biden supporting a US Imperialist, foreign policy.
