Anticipating the start of the Republican National Convention, I spoke with BBC Radio Wales on Monday about the phenomenon of Donald Trump and the future of the GOP.
However, the interview took a twist with Sunday’s events in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where a gunman killed three police officers and wounded three, two critically. The incident was the second multiple killing of police in a week, amid protests over racial and economic issues and the police’s shootings of unarmed African American men.
So the discussion moved from Trump v. the GOP — and will the two be able to work together — to the danger of his possible exploitation of the tension.
