No longer swinging but Trumpism will live on

Donald Trump himself said “losing is never easy”. He was playing golf when the news broke that Joe Biden was going to be America’s next commander-in-chief.

In a tweet, the out-going US president still insisted he won the vote and repeated unfounded claims of election fraud, suggesting some ballots for his rival were not legal.

But it wasn’t the runaway victory for the Democrats that pollsters had previously predicted. There remains a huge amount of support for Donald Trump across the United States.

So what next for Trumpism?

Republican and Trump supporter Maythe Magdelano, in Miami, talks to the Sky News Daily podcast about his appeal, style of politics and what America needs now.

Host Dermot Murnaghan is also joined by Sky’s Siobhan Robbins and Harvey J Kaye, Professor of Democracy and Justice Studies at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay, as we examine the rise of Trumpism, what it is and why it will live on.
