On this week's Mises Weekends, Jeff is joined by Allen Mendenhall of the Blackstone & Burke Center for Law and Liberty to discuss the aftermath of Donald Trump's surprising victory in this week's presidential election. Jeff and Allen discuss questions such as: Will Trump's election genuinely transform American politics? Why aren't progressives cheering the Republican Party being led by a cosmopolitan New York City protectionist? And, should libertarians celebrate the defeat of the Bush and Clinton political dynasties? Plus, Allen gives his analysis of Trump's proposed Supreme Court justices, and whether the importance of the Supreme Court is overstated by conservatives and libertarians.
