“Trump, Inc.” Live: From “The Art of the Deal” to the Dossier

The hosts of “Trump, Inc.” held a live show in New York City to discuss Donald Trump’s businesses. And we had a trivia contest.

Find “Trump, Inc.” wherever you get your podcasts.

A few days ago, we held a live taping of the “Trump, Inc.” podcast at The Greene Space in New York City. Tony Schwartz, the co-author with Donald Trump of “The Art of The Deal,” talked with Ilya Marritz from WNYC and Jesse Eisinger from ProPublica about what Schwartz does and does not recognize in President Trump now.

Then, ProPublica’s Eric Umansky and WNYC’s Andrea Bernstein spoke with BuzzFeed’s Investigations Editor Mark Schoofs. Schoofs explained why BuzzFeed was the first to post the Russian “dossier,” and what we’ve learned since.

We also had a “Trump, Inc.” trivia contest. Here are some of the questions. (Scroll down to the bottom for answers and links to our relevant episodes.)

Protect Independent Journalism

This story you’ve just finished was funded by our readers. We hope it inspires you to make a gift to ProPublica so that we can publish more investigations like this one that hold people in power to account and produce real change.

ProPublica is a nonprofit newsroom that produces nonpartisan, evidence-based journalism to expose injustice, corruption and wrongdoing. We were founded over 10 years ago to fill a growing hole in journalism: Newsrooms were (and still are) shrinking, and legacy funding models are failing. Deep-dive reporting like ours is slow and expensive, and investigative journalism is a luxury in many newsrooms today — but it remains as critical as ever to democracy and our civic life. More than a decade (and six Pulitzer Prizes) later, ProPublica has built the largest investigative newsroom in the country. Our work has spurred reform through legislation, at the voting booth and inside our nation’s most important institutions.

Your donation today will help us ensure that we can continue this critical work. From COVID-19, to our elected officials, to racial and criminal justice and much more, we are busier than ever covering stories you won’t see anywhere else. Make your gift of any amount today and join the tens of thousands of ProPublicans across the country, standing up for the power of independent journalism to produce real, lasting change. Thank you.
