“From what we know so far, the Trump administration is geared to be the most pro-domestic-business, the most economically isolationist and protectionist, and the most pro-special interests American administration, ever. This could spell trouble for the United States and for the world if it truly acts in that direction.”

-Prof. Rodrique Tremblay [1]

As of this writing (Saturday, January 28th, 2017) President Donald Trump has announced a number of executive orders authorizing:

President Trump has also put forward memoranda advancing the construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, as well as one announcing the country’s withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

The newly minted Commander-in-Chief has also committed to “a great rebuilding of the armed services,” including “”new planes, new ships, new resources” and “state of the art” missile defense systems.” [2]

Notoriously, however, President Trump has been involved in high profile fights with the CIA. These include CIA assertions of Russian involvement in the US elections, and insinuations that Russia could blackmail the President with video footage of him involved in sexual escapades in a high end Moscow hotel. One day into his Presidency he angered Agency personnel with a speech that raged against media coverage of him, all while in front of a wall honoring operatives killed in the line of duty.

Having survived attempts to have him removed from power, where does the Trump presidency, and America, go from here?

On this week’s Global Research News Hour we will showcase a feature interview with Professor Rodrique Tremblay. Professor (Emeritus) at the University of Montreal, and the author of two books: The Code for Global Ethics: Ten Humanist Principles (2010) and The New American Empire (2004). He also authors the blog The New American Empire. In this conversation with Global Research News Hour contributor Colin Hamlin, Tremblay examines Trump’s tax and trade and puts them in a global context. He also opines on why Trump was able to beat Clinton in the recent election.

Following that discussion, we hear once again from fellow broadcaster and award winning investigative journalist Stephen Lendman. Lendman, who blogs at,  assesses Trump’s initial actions while in power, his rivalry with the CIA, and the role he sees Trump serving in the context of a dominant and divided deep state.
