04 Roger Stone – What Donald Trump Learned from Roy Cohn and an Inside Look at a Career in Political Advising

Roger Stone is a long time advisor of Donald Trump – he is a defender of Trump even though he has no official connection to the campaign any longer. In this interview, we talk about the Trump campaign from beginning to present; how Roy Cohn mentored a young Trump, how Roger advised him early on, and his current campaign operations.

Roger also leads us into an inside look at his decades-long career in political advising, from helping Reagan get on the ballot in New York to working with Nixon post-presidency.
