Glenn Greenwald: Trump Is a ‘Continuation of American Political Culture’ (Video)

"There [are] a lot of people who want to pretend that what [President Trump is] doing is some kind of radical break from the American tradition, because they're embarrassed," The Intercept's Glenn Greenwald said at a recent event of the nonprofit acTVism Munich in Germany.
Greenwald explained that while Donald Trump's personality, rhetoric and style are "something unlike what we've seen before in the Oval Office," the president's policies are in line with mainstream American politics.
In a wide-ranging discussion, the journalist discussed National Security Agency surveillance, Israel, Syria and other contemporary issues.
